When he came home in 1946 he met and found his lifelong love in Alice. Using the skills he had obtained in the war, he joined the Department of Transport as an electronics technician servicing landing equipment at airports in Eastern and Northern Quebec and Montreal. He retired at the age of 54 and he and Alice moved back to Saint John. Summers at their cottage at Ragged Point, where nieces and nephews were always welcomed. Winters were spent in Port Orange, Florida.
Dad was a true gentleman whose kindness will be remembered by all who knew him.
The family would like to thank the staff in Tower 5 at Deer Lodge Centre, especially Karen, for the special care and kindnesses that they provided Dad.
