He is survived by his wife of 39 years Gwen; son, Jeffrey (Yi-wen) of Taipei, Taiwan; daughter, Laureen (Jamie) Benton of Hastings, England; granddaughters: Willow, Mathilda, Keira and grandson Heath. Also survived by brothers Jack, Mike (Val) and Carl, sisters Joan Petrie, Marilyn Belec and Carol (Ed) Hobley and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his father, Carl in 1949 and his mother, Marion in 1978.
The family wishes to extend their heartfelt thanks to Dr. Ron Bull and Shirley Rollheiser for their caring and compassion, for without their help and support his last days at home would not be possible.
