Maurice was born on the farm near Oak Lake, Manitoba and moved to Flin Flon in 1953 where he worked in the Assay Lab in the mine. Maurice loved camping, fishing and curling, and took up golf when he and Barbara retired to Parksville, BC. They were very fond of travelling and especially enjoyed New Zealand, Europe, and the Caribbean. Dad was a private person, who developed deep friendships in Flin Flon and Parksville.
A private family memorial will take place at a later date.
