It is with saddened hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our dad, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle, cousin and friend on July 21, 2016, at home on Ledrew Ave, at the age of 70.

When he wasn’t at the track, he was at Henry’s watching the horse races on TV or in the barn watching hockey with his son-in-law Vince. He enjoyed his weekends with his family and friends either at the campground, playing pool or bonfires at the cove, visits with his special niece Carrie and also had a special bond with his darling duck Ashley who he thought the world of.
