He enjoyed taking his family camping and boating, fishing and water sports.

The family would like to express their thanks for the compassionate care provided to dad by Dr. Macintosh and the staff at Cheam Village. A celebration of life will be held at 1 pm on July 27th 2011 at the Legion Branch 4 - 9350 Mary St, Chilliwack.1
