His wife Margaret Cowie (nee Nelson) (d.2018) and her children Brian (Ellen), Gerrard (Laurie), Brad (Kate), Krista (Walter) and Ross (Karen).  Also left to continue his legacy are many, many grandchildren and great grandchildren.  Dad lived a full and varied life with his work, church, travel, retirement, and the Royal Canadian Navy service.  He persevered and dealt with so many health issues.  Dad’s life of courage and dignity are his greatest gifts to all of us.  Friends will be received at the HIGHLAND PARK FUNERAL CENTRE 2510 Bensfort Rd., Peterborough on Sunday from 2:00-5:00 PM.  There will be a Funeral Mass held at ST.
