Dad and Mom raised us in a home filled with love, laughter, many family gatherings and memories that will last a lifetime. For that we are forever grateful. Family and friends were important to Dad, and spending time with those he cared for made him the happiest. Whether it was at the family cabin at Good Spirit Lake, or on a curling rink or trips to visit those he and mom cared about, Dad always made everyone he met feel like they were the most important person. Dad was never in a hurry and was sure to run into someone he knew almost everywhere he went. We are proud to have had such a caring, selfless dad.
He was an active member of the Knights of Columbus and served them in many capacities. He was humbled when his family was chosen as Family of the Year.
He was a faithful member of St. Gerard’s Church. He was actively involved in all of our activities as we were growing up, and his grandchildren always knew that if Grandpa could, he would be there cheering them on too, whether it be in a rink, or on a cross-country or football field. He was our biggest fan always.
