It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our Dad. After a brief hard fought battle with cancer, Dad passed away peacefully with his daughters by his side.

Dad was born In New Westminster BC, he joined the Canadian Forces (navy/army) in 1959 until 1980 when he stared working for Department of Public Works.  He retired in 1994 and spent every winter in Yuma up until the last 2 years.  Dad had a love of flying and got his pilots license in the ‘80’s.  Dad had many good life long friends over the years.

Dad is survived by his wife Fay, former wife Ethel, daughters Sharon (Stephen), Darlene. Brother Dick (predeceased Marietta), sister ( predeceased ) Sheryl, sister Sandy.  Niece Kathy (Ken), Nephew Rick (Yvonne), Niece Vicki (Bob) as well as great nieces & nephews.  Papa to granddaughters Jennifer (Jeff), Sarah (Curt), Kayla (Kyle), Stephanie (Pat). Papa to 7 great granddaughters and 1 great grandson with another on the way. Step Dad to Dale (Lindsay) , Laurie

Dad was a little hard on the outside, but a marshmellow on the inside.  He will  be greatly missed by us all.  A special “thankyou” to Dougie who was there everyday to visit Dad.  You were a great friend.

Thankyou to the Nanaimo Pallative Care Unit .  The  Doctor and Nurses took such good care of our Dad. He commented everyday about how good you all were to him, as well as all the volunteers.

Thank you to Evergreen Cremation , Kevin, for your compassion and your efficiency in taking care of our Dad.

As per Dad’s wishes there will be no service
