He was predeceased by his loving wife Claire (Leclerc), his daughter Linda and his granddaughter Robyn. Lovingly forever remembered by his children Robert (Jayne), Susan, Brenda (Rob), James and Dennis as well as many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
He was a loving family man who always put others before himself and welcomed everyone into his life and home. For those lucky enough to have known him, he will be remembered as a wonderful, smart, funny, hard-working, very intelligent, honest, and giving man with a beautiful smile. In his 95 years, he made a difference in many lives and will be remembered fondly. He was an avid outdoorsman who loved hunting, fishing, camping, and cross-country skiing.
He was a proud veteran of the second world war before coming home to work in the mines in the Kirkland Lake area. Soon after, he met the love of his life, Claire. They married on December 27th, 1946, and shared a full and loving 61 years together raising their 6 children and welcoming many grandchildren and great-grandchildren along the way. During those years he changed careers to become a Property Assessor for the province of Ontario before retiring in 1993.
