Hal loved his job training his own racehorses at Hastings Park, Vancouver and he was successful at it. He was a most welcoming man who enjoyed the company of his family and friends. He was absolutely the best Dad ever, always there to help and he had vast knowledge about the world. Hal enjoyed round dancing and he could sing like Kenny Rogers. He loved life! We will all miss him greatly.

A Celebration of Hal’s life will be held at a park this summer for family and friends. Details to follow.

I will always remember my "Step-Pop" with love. You always were so sweet and welcoming when we came over to visit. We would talk about birds, adventures and look at photos together. You always had great advice to give and lots of love. Cheers to you! We will all miss you so much! This picture is of you happily enjoying one of Mom's delicious home-cooked meals.

I can't believe you're gone , honey. We had almost 25 years together. You were a wonderful man. I thought that I could help you get better again but it wasn't meant to be. As I sit here in our living room I am reminded of how much you enjoyed your comfy home. You loved the birds and flowers in the backyard and often you would get your little bird book out and tell me about a new bird that you spotted. Hal , l miss you so much and l will love you forever and always. Humma Humma, Yumma, Yumma. One day we will dance again together in Heaven. Love ,Nanc.
