Our father was known to be an expert mechanic around town in his working life. He enjoyed many early mornings salmon fishing on the Gander and Conne Rivers. Dad had a great sense of humor who loved company and debating about politics. He gave the best bear hugs! Our father was deeply loved and will be dearly missed.
At Dad’s request, cremation has taken place and a Family visitation will take place at Stacey's Funeral Home on Monday, October 19, 2020 with Interment to follow at All Saints Cemetery, Gander.
In honour of Dad’s desire for an Irish wake, we offer this verse.
The Parting Glass
So fill to me the parting glass
And drink a health whate’er befalls
Then gently rise and softly call
Goodnight and joy be to you all
