His family will remember him as a dedicated military Captain yet very loving when no one was watching. After many years of service and several attempts at retirement he finally found he was happy just riding his motorcycle and Spyder, travelling and camping. Enjoyed being a Snowbird to Florida and tried to never miss a Maple Leafs hockey game and later Blue Jays. He also enjoyed golf and flea markets.

Celebration of life will be held at a later date in the Spring 2023. Details to be advised.
