Keeping himself busy over the years whistling and singing while he worked whether he was making Mini Max Boats, many a chair (wicker and macramé), Fold a Way Tables, convertible Bench to Picnic Table, building a Cottage from the ground up, building/rebuilding bicycles and mobility scooters to name a few and who can forget his photographs which he developed himself or the home movies taken with the heavy VHS Camcorder and his blue shirt on the bench. If Mum had ever wanted to get dad really mad all she would have had to do was move into a house that needed absolutely no repairs.
He was a hard worker and a good provider acquiring many skills throughout his life. A good friend to everyone he met they always enjoyed his stories on entrepreneurship, his guidance and mentorship. Our deepest gratitude to the many who have the taken time to call/message sharing their memories and sorrow with us.
