It is with great sadness we announce the passing of a wonderful husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather, uncle and friend.

Predeceased by his parents Anthony and Florence; his brother Jim; his wife Marguerite (in 2011); survived by his daughter Kathy (Dolf) Van Schaik; son Joe (Donna); grandchildren Barry, Connie and Terahn; brother and good friend Bert (Karen); sister and faithful Canuck fan Isabel McFarland; nieces and nephews.

Dad started his career as a carpenter at BC Forest Products and went on to serve as an Airframe Technician in the Royal Canadian Air Force for 35 years with postings in Cold Lake, Germany, Cypress, Comox and Edmonton. He moved to Victoria in 1991 to be closer to his daughter and help raise his grandchildren. He was well known and frequently found supporting his grandchildren at the rink in figure skating and hockey. He died waiting for the Canucks to win the Stanley Cup.

At his request, there will be no service. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Queen Alexandra Centre for Children’s Health.
