It’s so hard to say goodbye.
I will always remember uncle Real’s great sense of humour, his kindness to others, and his love of adventure. I grew up along side his children, my cousins, and what wonderful memories we made together. My heart goes out to all of you as I know all to well the pain of loosing a parent. Know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and I miss all of you.
All my love to you during this difficult time.

On behalf of my family, please accept our sincerest condolences at this difficult time. I had the pleasure of working with Real at Timmins Transit where we had many laughs. I was amazed at his mechanical abilities & smiled every time he went on a service call. He used to grin with 'that grin' & say "don't bother calling a tow truck, I'll bring it back!"

He often mentioned his family & his fondness for all of you.

May you all find peace in his memories & of a life well lived.
