Boynton Beach, FL – Mr. Wayne D. Synott, formerly of Thomaston, passed away on January 17, 2022 in Florida. He was the husband of Mercedes (Fisher) Synott.
He was born June 1, 1947 in Waterbury, son of the late Homer J. and Ann M. (Subach) Synott. Wayne grew up in Thomaston, CT and graduated Thomaston High School as part of the Class of 1965. In his younger years he enjoyed cars and hunting with his two brothers, Joe and Ritchie. He joined the US Army after High School and was stationed overseas. Upon his return, he worked in CT as a Plumbing apprentice, learning the trade in which he would excel for his entire life.
He then moved to Colorado Springs, CO and continued his plumbing career. He then moved to West Palm Beach, FL and began to work as a licensed Plumber for Palm Beach County in the Parks Dept, County Jail, and County Courthouse for many years until his retirement. He also owned and operated his own Plumbing business, Independent Plumbing Services in West Palm Beach, Florida. He was a dedicated worker who at one time had three jobs. Both of his sons, Daniel & Ronnie, heeded his advice and direction to learn a trade and both of them became successful licensed electricians in the State of CT.
He met the love of his life, Mercedes, in 2004 in Florida and they were happily married for the last 18 years while residing in Boynton Beach, FL and Jefferson, NY. The two of them were madly in love and inseparable for 18 unforgettable years until his recent passing. They were a “Gift from God” to each other.
Wayne was an avid boater and owned many different boats throughout his lifetime. He enjoyed recreational boating on the Intracoastal Waterways in the West Palm Beach area as well as traveling to the Bahamas on his boat with friends and family for fishing trips. He enjoyed the freedom that one feels when traveling by boat in the open waters.
He was also an avid gun enthusiast who enjoyed shooting both in Florida and at his property in rural Jefferson NY. He was a true American patriot in every sense of the word. He loved his country.
Everyone who has known him saw him as a good friend or relative and he will always be remembered as a laid back, fun-loving guy who was always the first one to start any festivities. He loved life to the fullest and all that have known him will have fond memories that will last a lifetime. He will be sorely missed.
In addition to his wife, he is survived by one son, Daniel Lee Synott of Webster, MA; one step-daughter, Marji Weber of Los Angeles, CA; one brother, Joseph Synott of Thomaston; two grandsons, Nick Synott of Bristol, CT and Tyler Synott of Thomaston; one granddaughter, Bethany Synott of Bristol, CT; two step-granddaughters, Morgan Weber and Isabella Weber of Los Angeles, CA; two great grandsons, Parker and Leon Mazeika-Synott of Bristol, CT; four nephews, Steven Synott of Thomaston, Gary Synott of Torrington, Joseph Synott of Thomaston and Jeffrey Synott of Shrewsbury, VT and two nieces, Cheryl (Budris) Synott of Thomaston and Julie Ann (Synott) Dionne of Bristol, CT. He was predeceased by his son, Ronnie Wayne Synott; his brother, Richard T. Synott and his niece, Karen Synott.
