He will always be remembered for his sense of humor, his love of learning and sharing of knowledge. He was a mentor and friend to many.

Friends are invited to attend a Memorial Mass, Thursday, January 15, 2009 at 9:30 a.m. by meeting directly at Our Lady of Peace Church, Stratford Road in the Lordship section of Stratford.
