13: I remember when Maurice was over many weekends helping (doing most of the work really) us finish our basement and the washroom on the lower level. I learned a lot about accuracy and detail then, I think Jeremy gets that from his grandfather Maurice! Valarie and Maurice travelled to Hawaii with us on our 1st major vacation with the kids, good to have them along to babysit once and a while. Maurice loved his golf; he actually scored his age when he was 78. I took him to Florida with the boys a few years ago, my only golfing trip with the boys. We had a great time and he fit right in. My last great recollection was his last birthday party lunch with us in St Catharines, He certainly seemed to enjoy having us all with him especially the great grandkids. You could see the joy on his face. As a son-in-law, I was lucky to have him as a father-in-law. Mac

14: I will always remember the chats on the phone after everyone else said their hello. Maurice would tell me about his day, his meals, his aches & pains, but it would be a delightful conversation full of laughter. Maurice had some great one liners too! It's personal, but the best one is "He's still short!" Murielle

16: MY GRANDFATHER HAS BEEN A CONSTANT PRESENCE THROUGHOUT MY LIFE. HIS KIND HEART AND DRIVE FOR PERFECTION HAS MENTORED ME TOWARDS A CAREER WHERE I CAN ENJOY THE FRUITS OF MY LABOUR. I WILL MISS HIS LAUGH, HIS HOT SPOONS, HIS LOVE FOR ME AND MY COUSINS. I WISH WE HAD MORE TIME. JEREMY | I fondly remember long conversations with Maurice when Jeremy & I would drive him home to St.Catharines after a family dinner in Burlington and his particular fascination with politics, bankers and the Burlington sky way bridge. Amanda

18: I remember when you took me shopping for my 17th birthday at the Penn Centre. It was our first shopping trip and I remember how special I felt that it was just the two of us. Then years later we went shopping for Sam for his birthday and Christmas. I remember how proud you were pushing his stroller. I was so looking forward to us shopping again with Spencer. I will always think of you and know you are with me, whether shopping for toys or anywhere else. I love you always. Joanna

20: Maurice was the only one of Joanna’s grandparents I had the privilege of meeting. I admired his warmth and kindness. He had a calming effect and always seemed content when amongst family. He loved his great grandsons and had developed a special bond with Samuel. Maurice and I shared a love for hockey and of course the Montreal Canadians. I will always remember our trip to Buffalo to see the Habs. I had arranged the tickets, which unbeknownst to me, were located in the highest position from ice level. We had a great time that day. However, whenever reflecting on the game, Maurice was not shy to remind me of our “nose bleed seats.” I will miss him dearly. Jason

21: Grandpa Maurice | He gave me a green alligator from his house. Sam

22: After dinner, Grandpa would have a cup of tea. He would ask you for your hand – and then he would burn it with the hot spoon. Love you Grandpa. Emily

23: I remember when I attended Brock. I would stay with him once a week. Every night he would prepare dinner for me and every morning a big breakfast would be waiting. I loved our time together just me and him. Going to class wasn’t as bad knowing I could see him later. I think of you daily and I will miss you always. “I love you to the moon and back”. Vanessa

24: This past fall, we were raking his leaves for him, 17 bags later we were almost done. Grandpa decided to vacuum up the leaves on his car with his household vacuum cleaner. Needless to say, the leaves got caught in the tube. He went inside to find something to “de-clog” it and came back outside with a golf club. Although it didn’t quite fit, he figured it out. The care was clear of leaves, the vacuum worked. Just another day. I’ll miss you Grandpa. Jessica
