A great man may not do great things but they do ordinary things greatly. Our Uncle Alfred was a true gentlemen who loved his family. He was a great story teller, comedian, and sportsman who could be heard yelling at the TV while the Leafs played. My Dad said he was a great big brother who always shared. My fondest memories as a child were visits to their house as Uncle Alfred always made sure we left with candy. I will miss his warm smile. My deepest condolences to Alan, Audie, Christopher and their families. I hope you will find comfort in the many wonderful memories you have of your father and remember he will always be with you in your heart. Love, Jackie, Mo, Andrew and Alanna
