In the last two weeks of this life, he told us many times how he adored his wife and how proud he was of his children and his grandchildren. He left this earth knowing how proud we were to be in his life and how much we all loved him dearly. He also demonstrated a different comical side of himself to us and the staff of the C1 Stroke Unit at the North Bay Regional Health Centre. Our family truly appreciates the care, compassion and respect that he received on this special unit especially to Dr. Jena and his two favorite nurses; Mike and Dyllan. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the North Bay Regional Health Centre c/o C1 Stroke Unit would be appreciated.
As per his wishes, no funeral or service will be held.
