Dad arrived in Campbell River in 1946 after he married Ethel Mary Carmichael in Prince Rupert. He was a very hard working opinionated, generous man. Always looking out for his next project. He had many professions, from roofing, fisherman in Prince Rupert during the war years, moving houses, Private Pilot , owned R&M trucking partners for many years with Fred Meier (Haida Freight). He invested in many businesses most were successful. So many things that he did in his lifetime he loved a challenge . Dad had a great sense of humor, always made the room smile. He loved to watch Two and half men and Dragons Den. His other things that satisfied his day was his boat and a good hot rye.
A man who touched so many lives , very caring gentleman. Special thanks to Evergreen Home for all your attentive loving care. He loved you all. Celebration of Dad will be held on October 14th at Eagles Hall, Campbell River, between 1 – 4 pm.
