June 20, 1929 - May 4, 2013

Born June 20, 1929 in Kings Daughter Hospital, Duncan, B.C. Passed away May 4, 2013 at Cowichan District Hospital. He is now reunited with his beloved wife of 49 years, Gladys, predeceased in 1997.

Mourning his loss is his loving family, daughters Carol (Bob) Nelson and Rebecca Haslam, and sons Jack (Wendy), Ron (Wendy) and Mike (Liz) Haslam. His 12 Grandchildren, Cindy, Christine, Jack III, Laura, Carey, Candis, Mike, Dan, Paul, Leah, Anna and his dedicated grandson Nathan, who spent countless hours by his side. Plus 17 ½ Great-grandchildren and sister-in-law Isabel Limer. Dad never tired of hearing about another baby being born into the family.

Dad worked in the forestry industry for 50 years. He picked up the saw at the age of 14 and started falling and continued until his retirement at 64. He was a familiar face as a fire warden for 37 years in the summer months. Fighting forest fires and patrolling the Cowichan Valley for abandoned campfires brought him many hours of joy and stories. In his early years he was always found fishing Cowichan Bay or fly-fishing in the Cowichan River. He was always 'going on hunting trips" throughout most of B.C. He was and avid vegetable gardener and in his later years he was well known for his BAKING for everyone, especially his donuts and apple pies.

He was greatly loved and respected by his family and friends and his passing has left another void in their hearts.

We love you and miss you Dad.
Hug and kiss Mom for us.
A celebration of his life will be held Saturday, June 15 at Glenora Hall at 2pm.
