We celebrate his life¸ through the accomplishments he achieved. He studied Carpentry and achieved his Red Seal. He worked many years and decided to be his own entrepreneur and form his own company with his side kick LeRoy. Many years they worked together, enjoyed construction and building cabinets and renovation and making new friends. He had an adventure to Victoria, British Columbia. He worked for few months for his cousin’s husband-Jim Dunn, “Word of Mouth Construction”. He dearly loved it out there. His accomplishments he achieved in Natuashish, Labrador were exciting. He taught Carpentry to students. He loved every minute of it. He helped the people of the town and came away with many friends. He continued to teach Carpentry for Academy Canada in Corner Brook Campus. He taught many students there and enjoyed changing their lives. He especially helped the students build a “pencil sled”. He actually drove it in the race too. He was so proud to win “Best Design” sled. He also worked for S.W.G.C. in Corner Brook as Carpenter in Maintenance Department for the past two years. His expertise was valued by many. A very special thank you to all of our family and friends for the visits, phone calls, food, donations and anyone who offered their support to us during this terrible tragedy. A special thank you to Joanne Payne for her tremendous support. To those who helped in any of the search and rescue efforts, words cannot express our gratitude.
