Dad was an avid outdoorsman. He enjoyed camping, fishing on his boat and snowmobiling in the winter. He was at his happiest when he was at Sherkston in the summer and Florida in the winter. He was a very sociable butterfly and enjoyed having conversations with whoever he met. Dad loved his Saturday nights watching his Habs and Sunday spaghetti dinners with family and friends. Playing crib was his favorite pastime on a Sunday afternoon. Dad was a supervisor at Atlas steels when he retired in 1989 at the age of 62, he enjoyed a long retirement. We’ll miss you Dad, we’ll miss your laugh, your great sense of humor and your joy of life. Rest well dad, you deserve it. Mom has been waiting for a while! Thank you to the staff at the Foyer Richelieu, especially to the North End where dad lived. Thank you for your care, your patience and kindness. You were always very professional as well as caring, you treated my dad like family. Thank you as well to the Welland Emergency staff for the amazing care you gave our dad during his short stay with you.
