Because I could not stop for Death...

He kindly stopped for me.

Emily Dickinson.

After a life full of remarkable adventures our dad passed away at the age of 89. Dad is lovingly remembered by his children Naomi Ee (Albert), Cathy Farrow (Simon), Paul and Joseph, and grandsons Christopher and Benjamin. Dad was born in Cedar, BC; served two tours of duty overseas in the Air Force in WWII, then pursued a fulfilling career of teaching. He shared his love of literature, poetry, history and geography with students in Ladysmith, West Vancouver and Lytton, BC as well as in Ghana, Uganda and Lesotho. Dad travelled extensively to over 100 countries and sought out places steeped in history and culture. He will be remembered for his poetry recitations and colorful stories which he gladly recounted at every opportunity. No service by request. In lieu of flowers donations to George Derby Centre, Burnaby are appreciated. Arrangements by Affordable Cremation & Burial Ltd, Port Coquitlam, BC.
