Dad passed away suddenly on July 16, 2017 predeceased by wife Joan Edwards. He is survived by daughters: Deb Blaney, Debbie Gonzales and Joanne (Phil) Groves, 8 grandchildren: Robert, Michaela, Lexie and Maddie Blaney; Christopher, William (Sarah) Gonzales; James (Kristy) and Alexander Cooper, and 2 great-grandchildren; Isaiah and Zephyr. Born in 1939, Dad was admired by many for his wisdom, good humour, common sense approach and his unconditional love for his family. Dad and Mom’s bond to each other was undeniable and we have strength in knowing that they are again reunited.
