His life is a living example to all of us. As family, we were blessed by his unconditional love. A man of integrity, he was humble, selfless, loyal, honourable and a strong man of faith. He showed patience, humour and endurance in the face of adversity. Everyone he met was touched in a unique way by his gentle loving spirit, he made everyone feel valued and special.
