  13. As his lawyer and friend when he first came to Calgary I observed his fantastic zest for life, family and business deals..he had so much drive and talent and truly is and was a most memorable individual. He had a great and warm personality and endeared himself well to all people that he came in contact with.
    He did leave a positive lasting impression wherever he went and will be missed by all
    Shalom Fred til we meet in the higher court of life
