With heavy heart we announce the passing of our husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather.

He was married 68 years, 2 months and 18 days. He was blessed with five children; two girls and three boys: Shirley Joan July 1949, Mary Sue Helen November 29, 1956 (both deceased) and is survived by Gerald October 19, 1952, Sheldon September 6, 1955 and James June 4, 1961 as well as daughter-in-law, Marianne, three grandchildren and four great grandchildren.
