    We have very fond memories of Ad Fior at the Aero Space Museum of Calgary. Ad was a cheerful and knowledgeable tour guide, much admired by students and adults alike, to whom he gave tours of our hangar, and by our volunteers and employees. We are sad to learn that Ad has passed away at the age of 76 and send sincere condolences to his family and friends.
    Best regards, Shirlee Matheson

    I was a young Grand Knight in the Knights of Columbus and I remember that many times, Ad would help me carry my responsibilities with advice, friendship and support. He would remind me why we were members and tell me of his own experiences in such a calm and authoritative voice that I could not help but smile. Today, I will help carry Ad to his rest in the knowledge that within ten minutes of being in heaven, Ad will probably be volunteering. Ad, may God Bless you and your family.

    I’m so sorry to hear about the passing of your dad. He was such a great guy. He’d go “over and beyond” his duties volunteering. IF he would’ve been able to bend over backwards and hold his ankles, I bet he would. There was nothing he wouldn’t do and he’d NEVER grumble or refuse any tasks. BUT this was always done with a smile on his face. And to meet someone so giving and loyal, that was Ad. He sure would put a lot of us to shame. He was a wonderful gentle man, and is surely going to be missed.

    Please accept my sincere sympathy on the death of your father. I knew him through the Ski Patrol many years ago, but will not forget his smile and amazing gentleness with our patients on the ski hills. He was a good man.
