Passed away peacefully on June 16, 2021, at the Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg at the age of 97.
Dad will be lovingly remembered by his children, Barb (Beaumont, AB), Cheryl (St. Albert, AB), Barry (Beth) (Winnipeg, MB) and Brian, as well as his seven grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.
Dad was born in Toronto, ON and spent his career in the Canadian Armed Forces (Air Force). Being in the military, he served in various capacities (primarily Air Traffic Control) at numerous bases throughout Canada eventually retiring with the rank of Captain, in Kelowna, BC. Following the passing of our mother, Dad moved to Winnipeg to be closer to family. Dad was a kind, generous man who would do anything for his family and always looked forward to our visits for meals or just to hang out. He was our rock.
Although Dad never contracted the Covid virus, the last 18 months took a real toll on his general health and he struggled particularly in the last few months but never lost his upbeat and positive attitude.
Dad will be buried with Mom following a private family service in Kelowna, BC at a future date.
