Uncle Blondie was a one of a king man. He loved strong and hard. His chuckle and smile will be remembered. I will never forget riding in the back of his truck and UB steering the motor for the boat as we headed to camp. Many little girl memories that I will hold forever! My heart and love go out to the whole Weeks family!

Marv as a next door neighbour was great he watched out for our parcels and looked after our pets and house whenever we were away. He always had a twinkle in his eye and something interesting to say. One of my fondest memories of Marv was when I was studying bats and he came over wearing a rather tight bat costume. Marv was always ready for a funny story and sweets.
