Your loss is painful, yet also strangely reaffirming because it has made us ever more aware of the rewards of our wonderful relationship. We think of the legacy you left – a curiosity about life, a hunger for knowledge, a passion for humor, the importance of saving money, a sense that anything is possible if you work hard, how important family and friends are, and a model of what a father/husband should be.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, June 25, 2023 from 2:00 – 4:00 pm in the Celebration Centre of the James Reid Funeral Home, 1900 John Counter Blvd., Kingston (please enter from the rear parking lot doors).

“You will forever be missed but we know in the right time we will meet you again.”
