ever lived and a man who made you laugh with his witty comments. He will
be sadly missed by his daughter, Pam (Bruce) Bullen, Halifax; son, Ken
(Debbie), Middleton; and daughter, Terri-Lynn (Lee) Preziosi, Labrador
City, N.L. He will be forever loved and remembered by his grandchildren,
Heidi, Nathan, Gavin, Jenna, Tanaya, Eric, Jillian, Kathlene, and Mitchell.

I see countless Christmas trees
around the world below.

please wipe away the tear.
For I am spending Christmas
with Jesus Christ this year.
