Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • Our prayers and condolences to the family. Adolphus was a good friend and we were fortunate to have known him and his family. Lots of good fond memories and stories over a cup of coffee. Love to all. - Posted by: Glenn & Brenda Sanderson & family (friends) on: Jun 30, 2017

  • With our heartfelt and sincere sympathy to the BUSHIE family in the loss of such a wonderful, kind and gentle man. We will always have fond memories of Adolphus delivering the mail to Bissett - he was certainly missed when he no longer made the trek but always warmly welcomed when he would come back and have a coffee at Wynne's Place to visit with the locals. It was always so nice to run into him at Pic's or South Beach when he would always take the time to talk if only for a moment. Rest in Peace Adolphus and 'see you later'.
