  • I worked with Digby in the late 1970s. He was a kind and decent gentleman who cared for his family and all kids. - Posted by: Bill Stevens (Colleague) on: Nov 10, 2019

  • We had the great pleasure of being neighbors and friends with Digby, Rose and their family for many years. They were the best neighbors you could ask for and we miss them both. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Carol and Ross, and your families and extended family members. Digby was blessed that you were by his side so faithfully. Tears of sadness as you leave us Digby, but there will be tears of joy welcoming you to your eternal home. Rest peacefully our friend.
