Condolences & Memories (2 entries)
My dad told stories to the end. He was also a joker and I made him laugh right until the last day, telling him he was water logged. He was in Victoria General Hospital for awhile and had a roommate who swore and MY dad made sure this guy quit, his name was Morely a retired farmer. My sister Deb and Byron were in person for MY birthday but My dad and Byron kept thinking it was dad's birthday. The main reason we got together. They ate the cake like children it was the best birthday memory ever. I am grateful my sister, picked me up and took me to see our dad. My father collected lots of useless things, like a 1950's bus pass. Well, when his granddaughter Kathryn went to sell it on line, she found it was going to the University museum for a project on "wpg in the 50's". He has a few train photo's on the internet, plus Just outside of Saskatoon at a train museum is a 8x10 picture my father took and the last steam engine he worked on. I was so glad I took him there that day. I used to tell my dad Wally was waiting to take him for one last ride. For 3 years at least I called him daily for 1-2 hours chat. I really miss my daddy. - Posted by: Alyce Sandford (youngest) on: Jun 25, 2023
I got to meet Stephen once on a visit to his home, and I can say he was a very good story teller, from his time on the railroad and all his endeavours throughout his life, he was a very kind soul, and his passing is indeed a true loss for the world, as it gets to be a darker place as the kind souls disappear. May he be remembered by his family and all his friends that got to know him. - Posted by: Charles Pearce (Friend ) on: Jun 03, 2023
