Dad passed away on Friday, August 29, 2014 (3 Elul) in his 98th year. He was the beloved husband of Betty, for over 65 years and father of Brian (Eleanor) and Debby (Brian). He was predeceased by his three brothers and sister. He is sadly missed by his four grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
Dad was born and grew up in the storied North End of Winnipeg. Except during his military service in the Second World War when he was posted to other parts of Canada, he lived his entire life in Winnipeg. Dad continued to work into his 80’s. He and Mom lived for 63 years in their first house before both moved together to the Simkin Centre. Dad continued to do what he liked to do best right until the last week of his life: tell stories of his life and experiences and keep people of all ages enthralled.
“Who may dwell on your holy mountain? One who …speaks the truth from his heart.”
