Book of Condolences

Maggie & Jim WilliamsonDear Mimi , Mary Jane and family, Wow 64 years married, what an accomplishment ! I have only known Hubert for a short time but I will miss him in the hall or on his deck and our chats we had. He had a great outlook on life, great smile and gentle ways. Our condolences to all. Maggie & Jim
Lawrence and Sheila GreensladeOur sympathy on the death of Hubert. Lawrence worked for his brother John for quite a few years and John also sold us an acre of land next to their property to build our first house. Hubert built that house so we got to know him quite well in the fall of 1965. We have many fond memories of those months and how helpful Hubert was to a couple of novice home builders. We know he will be greatly missed. Lawrence and Sheila Greenslade
