He was a friend to so many.
Dad was a lover of the country, who thoroughly enjoyed spending time hunting partridge and moose, cutting wood, salmon fishing, trouting, or just going for a walk in the ridge. His favourite place to be was in the woods and being with mom. They did everything and went everywhere together. He was involved in the fishery since he was 18 years old and either worked in the fish plant or on a fishing boat. He was such a hard worker and made sure he provided for his family even when times were hard.
