He loved fishing and working in the woods cutting trees and making up firewood, which was "his happy place". He was a strong, determined man. Through difficult times, he always kept a positive attitude. Surviving are his wife of 54 years, Irene (Oestebo); daughter Ann Barkhouse (Brad), Tantallon; grandchildren Paige and Zach; sisters Marilyn Andrews, Halifax, Helen Smith (Charles), Vancouver; brother Danny, Rhodes Corner; several brother and sister-in-laws; nieces and nephews.
