Alex, a true gentleman was a good neighbour of my parents in Toronto for many years and I had no idea he was a veteran of WW2......These vets are passing away at a steady rate, and we need to remember their contribution to the world we know today. Obit is below.

This was a pretty bad week for my parents as they also attended the funeral of a close friend, Cliff Goacher, who they had known since 1957. Cliff did his National Service in Britain in the early 1950s before immigrating to Canada with Judy about the same time my parents met them in a walk up Montreal apartment where they all lived poorer than Churchmice.  Rest in Peace gents.

Both were called to serve, and they did with honour.
