Albert and I shared early experiences in Timmins as members of RCSCC Tiger in the late 40's, and later as members of the RCN when our paths crossed briefly in Washington and Toronto. He will always be remembered as a solid Canadian citizen and I am sure this spirit is living in his extended family. His passage is a loss to all who knew him and will miss him.

Ann, Pamela & Tim, Patrick and Christopher. We were sorry to hear of your father's death. I well remember that quiet smile on the photo you chose. Also recall his work related visits to Montreal while I lived there and exploring the city with Al. I will remember him, as will David. Fondly, Moira
