Passed away suddenly without suffering on Saturday, October 9, 2021 at the age of 89. Born, raised and married in Montreal to Velma (nee Fleet). Father of Rusty “Gerry”, Vikki , Glenn (Cheryl) and Scott. Beloved friend of Raymonde. As a young father during spinal surgery he knew he was dying. Although he was not a religious person, he railed at God to let him live to raise his children and someday see his grandchildren. God did, and graciously granted him 7 beloved grandchildren and 11 treasured Great-grandchildren. He was passionate about work safety and workers rights. Our condolences and thanks to the good Samaritans and doctors that came to his aide in his final moments.
