    Your dad was a great man. Him and my dad did a lot of things to together. I am glad that he had a great retirement from Canadian National Railway.

  4. Dear Pauline and Bryan….you will never know what a great friend your dad was to me. He introduced me to the Bruce Peninsula and basically taught me everything I know about hunting and fishing.
    As you know, I worked with him for years, and he was always great to share his knowledge of railroading to those of us who came along after he was a seasoned veteran. I will miss Joe, and he will always hold a special place in my heart.
    I am so very sorry for your loss, and perhaps it will ease the pain to know that you are not the only ones who are going to miss him.

  5. Pauline, Bryan and further family. My deepest sympathy in the passing of your Father. We have been neighbours for 48 years and there are so many nice memories of times spent with neighbours in years past. May you find comfort in your memories.
