After working as a teacher, serving in the Army during WWII, and working at Canada Post, Dad happily retired in 1979 at the age of 60. These years were some of the best, spending time traveling, curling, playing bingo, visiting with family and friends, tinkering in his garage and always looking after his prized tomatoes and geraniums.
