Kiyo retired from the logging industry in 2005.
After retirement, he and his friend Dave spent many days traveling the Province and cruising the Caribbean, but his the get togethers with Emily, Mario, Ken, Trudy, Allan, Keith, Sara, Rod, Mern and John were special. Thanks to Rod for rebuilding the family farm tractor and bringing back all those memories of our youth. Kiyo joined the TCC Diabetic walking group and met his new friends Clint & Allan and spent many days walking at Riverside Park. Thanks to his long time neighbours Darrell, Shelly, Keith, Barb, Justin and Vicki for also keeping an eye on him.
The family would like to thank Dr. Bourdeau, the Dr’s and Nurses on 6 North at Royal Inland Hospital and everyone at Marjorie Willoughby Hospice.
