Born and raised in Vancouver B.C., dad was a man of great charm, collecting friends wherever he went. He was an extraordinarily talented goldsmith, creating many beautiful pieces of jewellery well into his 80’s. For those he admired and loved he handcrafted treasures to be proudly handed down to future generations. Sincere thanks for the dedicated care dad received from Dr. David Arnold and the caregivers of Nurse Next Door. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Arrangements are in the care of Vernon Funeral Home 250-542-0155.
