Dad was a hardworking man. Most of his career he was a truck driver and before retirement a school bus driver. Dad had a small hobby sheep farm with his best friend “Jack”. When he finished sheep farming he continued to yearly plant his “long blue” potatoes. Dad loved to listen to and play accordion music for his family. Dad would often drive to the Codroy Fish plant to see who was out and about for a “yarn”. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him. A very special thank you to Dr. Scott and the staff on 3B stroke unit for the excellent care.
