July 3, 1931 – October 17, 2015
He was outgoing, gregarious and sometimes outrageous. He was called many things in his life – dreamer, roamer, elusive, fortune hunter and deal maker. He could talk the ear off anyone who would listen. Musically talented, he could sing and play the piano, banjo and mandolin. He has come to the end of his journey. Forget that he has stumbled, blundered and sometimes fell by the way. Remember him at his best, strolling in a forest listening to the rustle of leaves under foot; feeling a touch of a breeze on his face and, as always looking at rocks for the elusive mother lode. This is where he has gone home. Survived and missed by his twin brother Douglas of Hope, daughter Joanne, son-in-law Robert, four grandchildren and nieces and nephews in Ontario, BC and the US.
No service planned. Rocks were his passion. In his memory, place a favourite rock in a place of comfort.
