With heavy hearts we announce that our beloved father unexpectedly but peacefully passed away July 7th, 2010, 2 days after his 84th birthday. He is predeceased by his parents Elizabeth and Estelle, sisters Frances and Ethelena. He will be deeply missed by his wife of 59 years, Helen, his daughter Barb, sons Rick (Jeannie), Gord (Marie), daughter Cindy (Mark), his nine grandchildren and three great grandchildren, as well as his brother Howard (Mid) sister Elsie and his many relatives in Alberta. Dad will be missed by many friends from his life in Maple Ridge and those he has met along the way at the golf course, in Birch Bay & his fellow Legionnaires. He loved spending time with his family, had a love/hate relationship with golf, enjoyed building birdhouses and worked for Hydro for over 32 years. Dad was a navy vet and a proud Legion member for 45 years. A Celebration of Dad’s Life will be held at Fraserview Village 22610 -116th Ave Maple Ridge, Sunday, August 8th, 2010 at 1:30 pm. Please feel free to share your memories of Dad as there will be an open mike or they can be read out for you.
