He persuaded mom to come out to Ontario and married her on the 14th of November 1959.
Mom enjoyed many activities during her retirement years. Avid golfer, square dancer, historian, travel agent, and made the best potato salad ever! Above all mom was a loving wife, wonderful mother and grandmother, best sister, and an approachable person who easy to talk to.
