Sad. I grew up watching the RG Show in Canada during the afternoons and thought he was hilarious in his scenes. R.I.P Wayne and thanks for the memories.

If the women don’t find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.

A Red Green Prayer for Mr Robson.

I’m a man
I can change
If I have to
I guess.

Every time I saw it on, I watched it. They're the original "duct tape" guys.

They had “Red Green” on late night cable here in the US back in the 1990’s (Don't remember which station). It was hilarious. For those that have never seen it, think Southern “Redneck” humor of the Jeff Foxworthy variety but with rural Canadians.

I’m a man, but I can change, if I have to, I guess.

Remember, I’m pulling for ya. We’re all in this together!

On behalf of myself and Harold and the whole gang up here at Possum Lodge... keep your stick on the ice.

All it takes is a little imagination, some mechanical ability, and neighbors who mind their own business.

The handyman’s secret weapon - duct tape.

When the going gets tough, switch to power tools.

The guy had great timing. Mike Hamar has gone to the Big House one last time.
