He will be greatly missed by his eight grandchildren, three great-grandsons, and his brother Earl. He was predeceased by his infant children Raymond and Margaret Ann, and his sister Doris.
Visitation was held on Sat., Jan. 3 followed by the funeral service at the Chesterville Funeral Home with Rev. Wendy Wright-MacKenzie of Trinity United Church officiating.
