Dad was known for his sense of humour, as he always had a joke or story to share. He had a kind, sensitive heart and was always willing to help others. Dad lived a very simple life and family meant the world to him. Most days you would often find him at Market Mall having coffee with friends or walking in the park as he loved nature. Dad will be lovingly and dearly missed by all who knew him.
It was his wish that there be no funeral service. Friends so wishing may make donations, in memoriam, to the Parkinson Canada- Saskatchewan, The Saskatoon Mental Health Association, or the Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan.
