Dearly loved and will be deeply missed by his children and grandchildren. Thank you to his nieces and nephews in Thorold who lovingly supported our Dad so he could live independently in his beloved family home on Cynthia Street until he moved to Markham and their continued calls and visits over the years that followed when dad selflessly moved closer to us in Markham to cherish his last years which we were truly grateful for.
