Our Dad, from a young age until retirement was employed at the Sault Star. Dad and mom loved to travel, golf, take care of their beautiful flower and vegetable gardens. Our Dad played hockey, baseball, and was a member of the Legion Band (played trumpet). He enjoyed watching his children and grandchildren participate in all forms of sports. He had his favorite sports teams, the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Tigers and attended many of their games. Our Dad also enjoyed going out for supper every Friday and meeting new people along the way.
