He continued his education at Memorial University and after two years returned here to teach. He showed the same interest in his work and was respected and liked by both teachers and pupils. After one year of teaching he went back to Memorial to complete his studies. It was during the summer of 1967, while he was employed at Toronto that he became ill and was obliged to enter hospital there. He underwent major surgery and for a while it seemed he would not recover. But anxiety gave way to hope and great was the joy of his parents and family when he returned home, and entered university for his final year. They saw a dream fulfilled when in May 1968 he graduated with two degrees, a B.A. and B.E.D.
It was again while in Toronto that he was stricken and entered hospital where with the help of drugs and his own undaunted courage he recovered sufficiently to return home. It was while visiting his grandparents at Bishop's Cove a few days before Christmas that he suffered a relapse and from then on dearest to him realized the end was not far off. His parents, especially his mother was at his bedside almost constantly during his last days. But the love and care of his devoted parents and family and all that medical aid could do could not spare him and he passed away.
In his short lifetime he accomplished much and left beoehind memories of a fine young man, a son who was a credit to his parents and source of joy to his family and friends. He will live forever in the hearts of those who loved him.
He leaves to mourn beside his parents, two sisters Elaine and Barbara Ann, two brothers, Ted and Roger, his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. James Smith, Bishop's Cove and a very large circle of remains rested at Young's Funeral Home until Tuesday January 14 when the funeral was held at Holy Redeemer Church.
