Uncle Arthur loved all his nieces and nephews, and had many fun times with them, jokes, lots of laughs, and songs…he was blessed with all of them. Singing, playing guitar with his brother Ted, hootenannies, with friends and family, always loads of fun.!
He was Well-known for his very social and engaging personality. He loved telling jokes (often the same joke over and over again, ha-ha) He was always the first to help people, not only his family but anyone that needed help.
Since we (Dana & Monty) moved back home to Cape Breton to be with my father, we have really appreciated the past year we have spent together, and wouldn’t trade it for anything.
My Father was so incredibly proud of his Airforce Service, as he should have been, and also, very proud to be a very long-standing member of the Legion.
He also loved when our little dogs came to see Grandpa and his friends every Saturday at Harbourview. He loved our dogs, Daisy and Jenny. Even when we were there for a visit, without the dogs, he always said tell the dogs “I love them, and give them a scratch from me”..very sweet.
Living in Long term care, he made some amazing friends, Piercy, Katherine, Yvonne, and many more. Thank you so much to all the staff at Harbourview that treated him with respect and dignity, especially in his last days. It meant a lot to myself and Monty.
My Dad loved all of you, you now have an Angel on your shoulders forever.
