Our father was the epitome of love and generosity. He was a humble man who quietly celebrated the successes of his wife, children and grandchildren. He took great pleasure in the company of family and friends, especially the times spent at Wavy Lake.
His greatest legacy is his Faith in God, Faith in family and Faith in self.
The family wishes to thank the staff at Pioneer Manor for their care and compassion.
