Mr. Kenneth ‘Wayne’ Raketti of Penhold, Alberta, passed away at the Red Deer Hospital Centre on Wednesday, February 13, 2019 at the age of 75 years. Wayne was born on November 2, 1943 in Saskatchewan but built a life and family in Red Deer, Alberta. Wayne serviced oilfield equipment for decades, adopting the lifelong nickname “Diesel Doctor”. He loved working on pretty much anything as long as it wasn’t a passenger vehicle. Wayne’s other passion was racing modified tractors; he travelled all over Alberta for years, going as far as to design and build track equipment himself and served various positions on the Alberta Tractor Pullers Association. Wayne was an extremely kind and generous man, one who cared deeply about his family, friends and animal companions. He loved a good joke and told the best stories. He could make anything funny! We will miss his devilish grin and twinkle in his eye, while he was pranking someone. Wayne will be lovingly remembered by his son, Shaun Raketti of Brule, Alberta, his daughter, Trena Raketti of Red Deer, Alberta, his grandchildren, Tony Scott of Red Deer, Alberta and Christopher Scott of Penhold, Alberta. He will also be fondly remembered by his brother, Alan Raketti of Duncan, British Columbia; numerous family, dear friends and co-workers. Wayne was predeceased by his parents, Fred and Elma, sisters, Maryanne Rasmussen and Edna Raketti. A Celebration of Wayne's Life will be held at a later date. Condolences may be sent or viewed at Arrangements in care of Parkland Funeral Home and Crematorium, 6287 – 67 A Street (Taylor Drive), Red Deer. 403.340.4040 or 1.800.481.7421.

One of the coolest guys I have ever met. Always had time to say hello and give us instruction and encouragement to race with him and teach us about sportsmanship. Will be surely missed !

We were saddened to learn of Wayne's passing. He was always caring and considerate to me growing up and we spent a lot of time together as teenagers. Although we never saw each other as much in the last few years, there were always so many memories and stories to share. It was as if time stopped still. Rest in peace to a very special cousin! Our sincere sympathy to all the family.
