Dad was always a hard working man and lived his life with no apologies.
In 1960, while working on the Rainy River school project Dad survived a horrific accident. The brick wall collapsed and fell on him breaking his back. This changed the course of his life forever. He spent the next year in a body cast.
He was given a 50 percent chance of walking again. Dad, with his stubbornness and will, overcame tough odds and learned to walk again.
Fishing, hunting and tinkering on small engines were his passion. He could fix anything.
He will be sadly missed by all who loved him.
Interment will follow at Riverview Cemetery in Fort Frances, Ontario, in the spring.
An announcement will be posted in the Fort Frances Times.
“Time heals what reason cannot.”
A life remembered is a life well lived.
