  3. Aaron and I take great comfort knowing your last 6 years were spent exactly where you wanted to be…at home. I want to take this moment to thank my 2 oldest boys, Wesley and Michael Blacklock, whom shared many chats with their Papa over numerous Hockey games or gaining his deep excitement and expertise on how to build a dunebuggy. Both boys had a special place in their Papa’s heart along with his other Grandchildren. Thanks boys,

  4. Very sad to hear of Grant’s passing. I missed his last telephone call to me and did not get around to returning it. Now I very much wish I had made that call.

    I have great memories of when we were young and Gary, Grant and I would chase the girls at the INCo Club dances and in Onaping. But time is a thief and we all get older and go our separate ways. However, those memories of friendship never die.

    Our deepest sympathy to Gary and Claudette and to the rest of Grant’s family.

    An old friend,
    John and Shirley
