It is very hard to believe that Chick has been gone 3 years already today. I miss our chats over a pint or two and always found him ready with a tale or two and ready to listen as well. A very dear friend who will always be in our thoughts. God Bless you Chick.

Our hearts go out to all the family in the loss of your loved one "Chick" he was a true gentleman and scholar. My wife Wendy and I knew him for the past 24 years and shared many fun times in his company, always had time for a chat that always included that infectious smile and chuckle. My only regret is that I did not push him hard enough to write his story, in hindsight Glen, I guess I should have popped over with that bottle of scotch to loosen him up as you suggested.

Dear Glen, Wendy, and family,

My deepest sympathies to all of you on your Dad's passing. He truly was one of the 'good guys'. It's so wonderful that he has had a street named in his honour to keep his memory alive. His friendly, positive personality is definitely going to be missed.

Thoughts and prayers to all of you during this very difficult time,
