His passions in life were his family, his wife, Nancy, and his sons, Cory (basketball player extraordinaire), Terence Bay, Halifax Co., and Cannon (an officer and a gentleman), Cole Harbour, Halifax Co. They called him "our dad the miracle man" because he could fix anything and did so with great joy. He loved his time at the cottage on Zwicker Lake and his old yellow 1936 Dodge, playing duplicate bridge on Monday nights in Wilmot, auctions and Saturday morning yard sales.
In 1992 he started his business (Janes' Power Tools) and this gave him immense enjoyment. He was a jack-of-all trades and master of many, as many of his customers can attest to. He loved a challenge; the impossible fired his creative mind and made him tick. How he loved life and laughter. When he was diagnosed with colorectal cancer in January 2005, he decided to live each day his way - no medical treatment, just food, family and friendship to sustain his body and soul. He lived and died his way, surrounded by those he loved and knowing how much he was loved.

Nancy Thompson; sons, Cory (Jennifer Nauss), Terence Bay; Cannon, Cole Harbour;
