To Brenda, Tony and family: Sincere condolences on the passing of your father. He certainly was a wealth of knowledge to us, as his students in the Aircraft Maintenance Program, we had so much to learn and he had so much to offer. So many fond memories of him in the school. Lots of laughs and lots of stories too! Oh where has the time gone!

To Tony and family, our condolences, difficult days for sure. I am one of many AME’s coached by your dad, he kept it interesting and real. In 1978, we were pretty green to say the least, but I always felt he was proud of us as we are of him. Dean Gale and family, GrandFalls-Windsor.
