Survived by wife Sharron, sister Maran, brother Jack, children Kim (Rick), Steven (Linda), Kelly, Bree-Ann, and Susan, and several grandchildren. He was born in Vancouver. He served in the Air Force as a young man, travelled many miles as a truck driver, and he loved to fish. He was a wonderful man who had a great sense of humor. His unwavering contentment, patience and joy will be greatly missed. The family would like to thank the staff at Royal Crescent Gardens and the staff at Ridge Meadows Hospice for their compassionate and dignified care.
