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.

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.

V66 -- sorry for your loss. Please remember to take some extra time for yourself -- I am sure you were very involved in the end....

 

And know he is watching over you now -- still the patriarch -- a parents' job is never over! He is just on a different plain!!

Thank you. Yes it was unexpected to get validation. It brings me a lot of peace though. I think there was nothing more valuable to the two of us than that. And I am glad he's no longer suffering.
