They had four children, Paul, Allan, Gail, and Susan. Dad is predeceased by his oldest son, Paul and survived by his wife and children.
Missing Dad is His wife Imelda Thelma and children Allan (Karyn), Gail (Ron), Susan (Mark) and his grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Dad worked and retired from Teleglobe in Port and worked as a Communication Technician. He loved his work and was eager to always learn new skills. He also had a small hobby farm where he raised a variety of animals. He loved the outdoors and painted nature scenes. Dad and Mom spent many wonderful times traveling around in their RV.
