Passed away on Friday, August 13, 2021. He is survived by his children who he loved unconditionally, Allison, Andrew, Elizabeth Leforte; his grandchildren who he loved and took great joy in, Caleb, Max and Isabel; and many friends. Papa was a kind man who loved and would help his family and friends at all times.

He grew up in Ontario in bush camps and would tell stories about seeing the wolves in the woods when coming home on the school bus. He would travel in train cars across Canada to different jobs. His brother Clarence finally brought him out to Moose Jaw where he became a welder and was a proud member of the triple nickel (Boilermakers). He also met his wife Valerie, had three children and was a devoted caring father.

Papa was a dreamer and saw the awe and beauty in the miracle that is creation. We would often get pictures of sun rises and sets and angels in the clouds. He was and is a child of God and he is home now. Papa will be missed and remembered by his family who knows he is walking around Heaven right now saying “that’s just unreal man.”
