I am so sorry for your loss of this great man to his extended family, his community and his friends in business. I knew of his accomplishments through his nefew Peter Hoy, who was privileged to have his uncle's influence in his life. I always enjoyed Peter's talk of the influence of his uncle. Neil Freema
