Dad was a fun loving father who when his kids were young would load up the station wagon with his kids and any neighborhood kids that wanted to go and head to the beach “If there’s a seat in the car there’s room for another kid”. He was a generous man who was always willing to help anyone in need. His sense of humor made for many a memorable moment. Right up to his last minute his good humor caused laughter. His favorite saying, “Never take life too seriously you’ll never get out of it alive”. We wish to extend heartfelt thanks to the staff of North Lambton Lodge especially those on Oak Court for the care and kindness you gave to our father. He often mentioned how much he liked living at The Lodge and talked about how great the staff were. We are very appreciative for the top level care he was given in these last months of his decline. Thank you so much. As per his wishes cremation will take place. There will be no service.
