His passing leaves a shadow over his home that cannot be lifted. He was always jolly and met everyone with a smile, and bore his suffering with more patience than is commonly seen.

He will be greatly missed in his community and especially i his home, where his vacancy can never be filled. We are in great sympathy with the companion and children.
