With broken hearts we sadly announce the sudden passing of Dwayne Daniel Power on Aug 21, 2021. Born June 5, 1970 he called New Victoria and New Waterford, NS home. Dwayne was a Oil Pipeline Insulator by trade and travelled many miles back and forth to Alberta for employment.
Dwayne was truly one of a kind. So dedicated to all his family and friends, he had your back no matter what. Leaving a profound impact on everyone he knew and loved. Him smiling, laughing, being funny was so contagious the whole room would be laughing. There was never a dull moment with Dwayne around.
Dwayne was also an accomplished drummer playing in school bands in his younger years then in several bands as an adult. Most recently a 5 yr member of Full Circle Cape Breton who are not only a band but a true family. Dwayne behind his kit with "Animal" out front pounding on those skins making beautiful music that was his true happy place. And boy could he play. Dwayne and Full Circle filling the dance floor at every booking. All of our hearts are broken and missing him dearly including "our little girl" fur baby Luna whom he loved so much. Until We Meet Again Rest in Peace My Love.
Dwayne is survived by his partner Shauna Gracie, Stepdaughter Briauna Gracie, Mother in Law Irene Clarke, The Clarke Family.
