Always musically talented, he played the guitar, trumpet and bagpipes. He played the trumpet for the Oshawa Civic Band and sang with various choirs. He was known for his quick wit and sense of humor. He always had a story to tell and a joke for any occasion.
He was very patriotic. He was proud of his military service, serving both in the Canadian Regiment and the United States Army, 173 Airborne Division. He traveled and worked all over the world, making friends everywhere he went. He was a hard worker and always sacrificed to provide for his family. He faithfully served many church callings.

He lived a full, magnificent life, and words can never do him justice. We love him and will miss him dearly.
