Beloved husband to Sylvia for 56 years, loving father to Dave (Tracy), Pennie, Scott (Danielle) and Sean (Gail and the boys, Jamie, Jack and Michael). Proud grandfather of Tara, Blair and Cole. Dear brother of Bill (Joyce). Fondly remembered by nieces and nephews Gary (predeceased), Jamie (Maureen), Tana (Justin) and Troy (Nancy).
