  1. I worked at the bowling depot at Deerfoot Mall when it was still there. He always came and said hello and we grew to be friends. He was often surprised by the abilities my cell phone could do. I have a song on my phone that he liked and said I would never be able to find it. Frank Sinatra song “That’s life” Whenever I went to Deerfoot Mall after the bowling depot had closed I often hoped I would see him there. I hope he is in a better place. I’m sorry.

  2. Oh Chic what can one say…
    I was quickly welcomed by Chic when I moved back 11 years ago and rejoined the bowling community at the Bowling Depot. I remember bowling against Chic often hearing him yell ” Oh Balls!!” as the ball went sailing down the alley. Even after he was unable to bowl he still was a familiar and welcomed face at the lanes. He was memorized by Keiley my granddaughter spoiling her and many other lil ones with a seemingly never ending supply of stuffies he’d hand out almost daily. I will forever remember the black licorice he’d bring me ” just because”. A sweet man who I will miss forever…. Yes Chic ” That’s Life” and may you continue to bowl with the angels buddy…Oh Balls!!
