His generosity and kindness guided him, his family and friends fulfilled him. He was a constant to them all, always unconditionally supporting them. He always enjoyed a bit of mischievous fun, a good laugh, a yarn about the same old story and being a part of family gatherings with music and song. To the community, he was the school bus driver that loved the Toronto Maple Leafs. He was the gentleman who enjoyed walking around town with the aid of a walker, stopping to sit on the banks and rocks to take in the sights and sounds and chat with the people as they passed by. He will forever be loved and remembered by all who knew him. Rest in peace dear one, until we meet again.
