April 1929 - May 2021
We are sad to announce that our beloved father, grandfather, great grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend to many has passed away. He leaves behind his children Joe, Nancie (Doug), Tony (Anna), Susie (Rich) and Fran (Rich); grandchildren Lori (Troy), Rob (Allison), Michael, Donato, Sarah, Scott, Connor and Jedda; great grandchildren Austin (Sam) and Lizzy. He never met a plant he couldn’t convince to grow or a person he couldn’t charm. He will be reunited with his cherished wife, who passed in 1998, after a graveside service on Monday, May 31, 2021 at 1:30 p.m. at the Nelson Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, a donation to Canadian Diabetes Association would be appreciated.
