He retired in 2016 at the age of 76 and moved back to Campbell River where he reconnected with old friends during their daily lunches and enjoyed his time living on the hobby farm.
He is Predeceased by his Parents and his wife of 53 years.
He will be sorely missed by daughters Shelley (Ron), Kori (Craig), grandchildren Kristy, Kory, Kelly, Ryan, Sara (Ryan), Birklee, Tierney. His Sisters Pat (John), Dorothy and all his nieces, nephews and his abundance of friends.
