Dad was born in Toronto, Ontario. He moved as a child to Montreal and then Edmonton. After marrying our Mom, they moved to Thompson, MB. Dad had many fond memories of living in the North in the 1960s. He worked for many years with Manitoba Telecom System, which brought the family to Winnipeg. He was a proud member of the Manitoba Telephone Pioneers and Lions International.
The family would like to thank Dr. Kotecha and Dr. Dawe and teams for all their care.
There will be a private memorial gathering held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to CancerCare Manitoba or Diabetes Canada.
