Duty, decency, reliability, honor, dignity, respect: these are all qualities that my father not only held in high esteem, but practiced every day during his time on this earth. He was a serious and disciplined man, but he could never resist the opportunity to have a laugh with friends and loved ones, given half the chance.
It’s difficult to imagine him not being around and I’m not sure how we will all cope. It’s strange to think that I can’t just give him a call or pop around to have one of our good old chats.
Let's bid him farewell as we mourn the loss of a lively, dignified soul. A soul that brought joy and fulfillment to many, and whose legacy will live on forever.
Dad passed peacefully in Cobourg Hospital at 8am on September 11th 2020. I love you Dad, we all miss you but you will live on inside all of us.
Wilfred Parlee age 77
