own. He spent time in his shop restoring classic cars, building race cars, and entertaining numerous
childhood friends while playing Cribbage and sharing happy memories of Dream Weaver drag racing in
Gimli, MB. He also enjoyed Jets and Bombers games on TV and always stayed up late for Letterman. His
adventurous side was apparent with many road trips, mostly around Manitoba and sometimes driving
