passed away peacefully at the age of 78 on February 12, 2009. He will be sadly missed by his loving wife of 58 years, Marjorie, a sister Ora (Murray), two wonderful sons Wayne (Moira), Les (Wendy), and son-in-law Glenn, two beautiful daughters Sharron, Connie (Denis), and twelve wonderful grandchildren, whom he loved very much. He was predeceased by his Mom and Dad, three Brothers, darling daughter Colleen and grand-daughter Kelly. He loved to garden, fish, and read car magazines. But most of all, he loved to travel and has now taken his final journey home. Everyone he met in his life became a friend, and he had many.
