Dad immigrated to Canada in September 1966, 4 months before my mom and myself arrived. He found work at CN Rail then Pilkington Glass where he stayed for 35 years. He worked hard and steady providing us with a great life, never taking a day off. He was a one-of-a-kind wonderful father. He was always there, proud and supporting for me and my younger brother David and then later on for his grandkids also.
