Dad was a loveable giving person. He spent 38 years serving our country in the Military. He enjoyed old trucks, his chihuahua dogs, Mia and Tia, listening to country music and doodling in his TV guides.
Special thanks to the staff at Extendicare Maple View and especially the Nursing staff on Tunnel Lake for making my husband and our Dad comfortable to the very end.
