Enjoyed life from 1941 until October 29, 2008. He fought his battle with cancer courageously and left to mourn his wife Jenice (Jenny), daughter Lorrie (Doug) Spinney, son Steve (April) and four grandchildren: Ellyanne, Kersten, Zachary and Rebecca. Also six sisters and two brothers.
He was predeceased by two sisters and one brother, one niece and two brother-in-laws.
He found joy in the outdoors, and in his life long career as a truck driver, the last 25 as a transit mixer driver. He retired and moved to Alberta in 2004, settling in Fort Saskatchewan, where he was laid to rest.
