All were held close in his heart.
He had an illustrious career of 37 years with the Canadian Armed Forces, achieving the rank of MWO. Serving with the PPCLI and the QOR. Finishing his career with Admin Branch. Postings to Calgary, Victoria, Germany, Cyprus, Kingston and Gagetown. He was well respected and held in high esteem to all that worked for him and with him.
