We are sad to announce the passing of ice maker, manager and long term club member.
While in the Air Force, he had a part time job as ice maker assistant in Calgary. He went to Germany and made ice at the base. When he came back to Canada, he was posted to Ottawa and was assistant ice maker at the Granite Club. After 30 years in the Air Force, he retired in 1979 in Comox.
1979 – 1995 in Campbell River he was Ice Maker and Manager. The only staff he had was his wife, Pat and his son, Brian. Things were different then because of the large number of volunteers. One of the things he was most proud of was when he and Bea Mitchell started the seniors program, which is a large part of the present club.
He passed away on Saturday morning, June 29th.
There will be a celebration of life at the Legion on July 19th at 1 p.m.
