Although Dad was a quiet man, we always knew that his love for his family and his Catholic faith was without reservation or question. We will always retain happy memories of him dancing a jig, giving us horse and cart rides, going camping, driving hazardously, hosting Halloween bonfires, tinkering and inventing, gardening, pretending he heard us when he didn’t and being an extraordinarily hard worker and family provider. Dad will be deeply missed by all of us.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to BC Children’s Hospital Pediatric Oncology Program or a charity of your choice. Please contact Henderson’s Funeral Home for service information.
