With profound sadness we say goodbye to Wayne Iversen … brilliant Architect, steadfast friend and colleague, and phenomenal husband. He was kind, loving, and gracious. He was a truth-teller. Subtle humour was a trademark and how he loved to bait you and watch you fall into his playful traps. His nature was quiet and reserved yet he often took people under his strong wings to coach and inspire them to soar in the world. Design, art, and beauty surrounded and inspired him. They were the heart of him. He was invariably on the lookout for stunning pieces to include in his world. The more unique and arresting the better. Shopping was hugely important. Wayne loved the world and people. It was tricky to get him to travel. He adored the Monterey Peninsula and thought everything was here. Wayne’s buildings and designs stand as a testament to his genius, his strengths, his expertise, and his playfulness. “To be creative one must learn to play.” He is survived by his wife, Tracey Manning, and his sister and her family.
