Our father was an avid woodworker who over the years built furniture, houses and even worked on a school in Oshawa.
He loved nothing better than to go camping near Tweed where they bought property, lovingly known as Rocky Acre. Later in his life he took up wood carving and made some beautiful carved loons, which are on display in our homes even today.
When his first wife passed away he learned how to work a computer and put together an over 800 page family genealogy.
When he remarried he moved to his hometown of Sackville NB.
