Jr. was such an amazing man, a good person and a kind human being. I have memories of visiting Patricia & Jr. in NB and he always welcomed us into his home no matter when we would arrive. Him & Tim enjoyed jabbing each other about Tim's team the Maple Leafs and Jr.s team the Boston Bruins. They would call each other and gloat when their team was winning. He was full of fun and had a great sense of humour as well. Jr. we are going to miss you and watching the Bruins and the Maple leafs play against each other will never be the same without you. Maybe you can put in a good word for the Mapleleafs and perhaps they will win the cup next year.
Jr. we will miss you dearly and are so saddened by your passing. Until we meet again buddy.
