After the war and recovery he became an employee at Camp Hill Hospital / Veterans Affair for the next 38 years. During his retirement he loved to travel (Cruising) the world and took his last trip at the age of 93 to the Panama Canal. Dad loved watching hockey, whether it was his great grand children or his favorite player Brad (Micheau) Marchand. He loved photography, stamp and coin collecting, anything to do with boats and his beloved Blue Jays. Christmas was a special time for Dad and he got to see all of his family and a visit from Mr and Mrs Claus. Dad loved his Ipad, Facebook, Netflix, Westerns, cribbage and anyone who brought treats. Dad also appreciated his daily visits from his friend Reggie.
