Sorry to learn of Uncle Vince's passing. As a child his visits with Aunt Ruth back home to Cape Breton and his recollections of his military service were visits that I looked forward to. He was one of my inspirations to join the military and I had the opportunith to visit some of the same places he did.
Those that knew him will miss him as he impacted the lives of friends and family alike.
We are so saddened to hear of uncle vince passing. So many fond memories of his and aunt Ruth's visits home to Cape breton and then tge many trips on his own . The countless hours of his slides and the many stories they had to share. They will forever be treasured. Love Mary and family
Aunt Ruth, Bill and Martha, Fred and Brenda, I was so sorry to hear of Uncle Vince's death. He and Aunt Ruth took me under their wing when I was posted to Ottawa, I was so thankful to have family close by when leaving home for the first time. I have some wonderful memories of him, as I'm sure you all do. Hopefully you'll be able to draw strength from your memories to help you through your loss. Mom also sends her deepest condolences.
My thoughts are with you and your family during this very difficult time.
The Canadian Military Engineers extend to you and your family our deepest sympathies in your time of sorrow.
Brigadier-General Steve M. Irwin, CD (Retired)
