Tweed and Canada have lost a great man who spend a lifetime in the service of his country. A man who inspired me to look at the Military History of the Tweed area. He was family man and an artist who shall not be forgotten by me and mine or the community he lived in.

Hi Jonathan. I am so sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. He was one of those individuals who made a difference and that was certainly the case for all he did for the Municipality of Tweed. I am sorry I can not be there to express my sympathies in person. I will be in Sioux Lookout all next week. Our prayers will be with you all.
