Apr 10, 1929 - Oct 30, 2012
On October 30th our loving Dad passed away peacefully at the age of 83. He was born in Carberry, Manitoba on April 10th, 1929 and married our Mom (Wahnetah/Tot) 60 years ago on October 18th, 1952. They moved to Vancouver in 1956 where Dad worked for Metropolitan Ambulance and BC Hydro Bus before moving to Ladner in 1968 where he opened his own hardware store and eventually was a salesman for hardware and decals. He is survived by his sons Brock (Rita), Rod (Rene'), daughter Leigh (John), five grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. You were an inspiration to us all with your honesty, devotion to family, and gentle strength. The family would like to thank all of the staff at St. Joseph's Hospital and Glacier View Lodge in Comox, BC for the loving care he received in the past three years. A celebration of life will be held in the spring of 2013 for both Mom and Dad in Ladner. In lieu of flowers the family asks for donations in his name to your choice of the St. Joseph's Hospital Foundation or the Canadian Diabetes Association.
