Chapter Mourns Loss of Dr. E. Wayne Boone, PhD, CPP

On behalf of ASIS International Chapter 140, it is with much sadness that we pass along the news of the sudden and unexpected death of Dr. E. Wayne Boone, PhD, CPP. Wayne was a very active member of ASIS International in many capacities including as a past Ottawa Chapter #140 chair. He was an avid supporter of ASIS International and will be sadly missed.

Wayne Boone was one of two individuals killed in a multi-vehicle car/motorcycle crash near Belleville on Saturday afternoon, 2015-06-20.

UPDATE: The Interment Service will be held on Friday, July 10th at 10 AM at the National Military Cemetery at Beechwood Cemetery, in Ottawa, ON. For those wanting to attend, there will be a reception at the main building at 9:30 AM.

Wayne was a consummate professional in the field of corporate security. He was passionately dedicated towards security education. He not only earned his CPP but also such designations as CISSP, CISM, CBCP and PCIP. He was a former military police officer with the Canadian Forces, earning his Master of Arts in War Studies, Royal Military College and later his PhD, Information System Assurance, at the University of Fairfax, Virginia, US.

As a professor, Wayne was instrumental in establishing the Master’s in Infrastructure Protection and International Security (MIPIS), a joint initiative of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs (NIPSIA) at Carleton University. Wayne joined Carleton on July 1, 2009 and retired from his position on June 30, 2014. He encouraged his students to always strive for excellence in their security education and in their professional lives. After his retirement, Wayne made valuable contributions to the program as an adjunct research professor in NPSIA.

Wayne was also one of the driving forces for a revised student scholarship program with ASIS Chapter #140. He was active most recently in his own successful security consulting practice. He was always willing to assist others and often volunteered numerous hours leading study groups with ASIS and other professional organizations.

The Chapter extends its sincere condolences to his spouse Sherain Boone and their two children. Funeral service will be held Friday, June 26th. Donations in lieu of flowers. Details have now been released.
