October 19, 1960-June 9, 2015
It is with heavy hearts and great sadness, that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved father and husband,
He was born October 19, 1960 in Halifax, Nova Scotia and passed away on June 9, 2015 in Victoria, BC. He was a strong man who loved working as a miner, almost as much as he loved his family. Known mostly for his sense of humour and impressive work ethic. He loved everyone and was always so kind and compassionate. When it came to work, he was so proud of being able to surpass people’s expectations and spoke fondly of all the guys he worked with.
He is survived by his mother Diane, father Dave, wife Vickie, sisters Tracey and Florence; children Jessica, Kristina, James, Brandie and Keaton; grandchildren Lily, Holly Joseph and nieces and nephews. He will be missed profoundly by many. His funeral was held on Tuesday, June 16, 2015
We would like to thank the staff at the Campbell River Hospital, especially the ICU, the paramedics who escorted him by helicopter and the staff at the Victoria General Hospital who, although only saw him for a short time, did their very best.
