Steve and family, my condolences in the recent loss of your dad. It appears he was a man of

many talents and you will have everlasting memories of him. I remember my uncle speaking of

him favourably because he supplied buffalo meat to the Blue Castle Tavern many years ago.

Condolences to the Gurky family on the loss of a remarkable man. I remember fondly his presence at the Blue Castle when I was a teenager. He and his wife Irene will be remembered kindly in Perrolia’s history.

The Davidson familys' thoughts are with all of you. It has been a long time since I have seen any of you but I do have great memories of Expo 67 and working at the Blue Castle.
