    My grandfather died at 2 am this morning

    He was 92. It would have been his birthday next week. He died from double pneumonia from the flu. He lived a long and fruitful life.

    He was born in the UK and immigrated to Canada when he was four years old. He was 17 when he married my grandmother ( she was 15)and became a soldier. He served in World War II. He was a soldier from 17 until he was 55. They had 4 children together, Five grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. They were married for 63 years when my grandmother died 11 years ago.

    He was a great artist and had many friends in his retirement home community. His favorite saying was "everyday that you wake up is a blessing". He was very much the patriarch of his family.

    He is survived by his four children , his five grandchildren , and 9 great-grandchildren.

    We love you Grandpa and hope you are at peace with your loving wife.

    Thanks Star.

    My Grandfather and I had our differences but I loved him and I was glad I got the chance to tell him that and he got to tell me the same.

    I am very sorry for your loss Victoria. What a great old gentleman he was and he must be happy to be reunited with his beloved wife now.

    I am very glad you both found peace before his passing. It made his transition easier and will let you move forward in this world with a lighter heart.

    May God bless you and keep you.
