Do not grieve for me, for now I’m with my beloved wife Gloria of 74 years. Passed peacefully with Christine and Stephen by his side at St. Peter’s on Monday morning, March 20, 2023. Born in Cooks Creek, Winnipeg to parents Agnes and Joseph. Loving father to Pauline (Terry – predeceased), Christine (Rick), Peter (predeceased), Mark (Christina) and Stephen (Leigh). Proud Papa to Michael, Bradley, Lisa, Leslie, Vanessa, Jack, Wyatt, Breanna and much loved great-grandpa to Aden, Ripley, Tyler, Kyle, Payton, Carley, Reed and Nolan. Loved brother-in-law Gerry (Bernice – predeceased). Loved brothers Kasmer, Julian, Stanley, Edward, Lui, Adolph; sisters Mary and Jean (all predeceased). Sister and best friend Adeline (Johnny). Will be sadly missed by many nieces and nephews. Special thank you to nieces Leah, Wanda, Dr. J. Williams, PSW’s Maria and Betty, staff at St. Peter’s especially nurses Sara and Kamini, John and Karen Macintyre, Kathy Miller, Allan and Betty McCulley, as well as Don and Paul Chappel. God bless you all. Dad’s greatest joy was visits from his grandchildren. His passions in life, Mom’s baked goods, bowling, golfing, Saturday night cards with Adeline and Johnny, social gatherings with his close family and friends and Tuesday and Friday night lottery!
