Our dearly beloved Dad was a kind hearted soul with a beautiful genuine smile, his happiest times were when he was surrounded by family and friends he always had a story to tell that would put a smile on your face. He came to Canada as a stowaway in the late 1950's, as a bachelor to start a new life, with a hole in his shoes and a 5 dollar bill in his pocket no family and not able to speak the language.
