Our loving Dad, Grandfather, best friend and mentor passed away in his 98th year. Peacefully and at home on his daughter Sue and son-in-law Barry Woods’ farm on a beautiful, sunny day. He was surrounded by his loving family until the end. He leaves to mourn his passing his son Barry (Robin); grandchildren, Chris, Julie (Mo) and Steve (Caitlyn); and great-grandson, Rory. He will be sadly missed by his best buddies, Bea, Nancy and Scott and Diane (Juniper Fairways), and fur-babies Maggie and Lily. Our Dad was one of these people who made friends so easily, could start up a conversation and be someone that you would remember. We would like to say how much we appreciated the support and care from CCAS, Bayshore and dedicated PSWs, Amanda and Cheryl. Also, a big thank you to Dr. Anne Bartleman and everyone at the Smiths Falls Community Health Centre that went out of their way to help for the past few years. He leaves behind great memories for all of us to cherish and will be truly missed.
Cremation has taken place and a private family burial will follow at a later date. Waiting for him with open arms will be his daughter Diane and his wife (Betty) whom he missed terribly.
