Dad loved animals and children. He was proud to be a long standing Lion. Flowers are welcome but donations in his honour may be made to the Children’s Wish, Lions Foundation Guide Dog Program or the Arnold’s Cove Lions Club in aid of a defibrillator.
Angel’s walk among us – We know this because we have experienced their blessing through the actions of so many since dad’s diagnosis. Many people have carried and supported the family during this time but a special thank you to Dr. Fowlow, Nurse Cathy, Dexter, Jim, Albert, Jeff, his Home Hardware family and the Eastern Health Palliative Home care team who helped him live his best life as long as possible and fulfill his wishes to stay at home.
