Dad was also a farmer with a mixture of exotic beef cattle, pigs, turkeys, poultry and a large market garden. He also worked full time at the Coca Cola Bottling Company for over 40 years. If this wasn't enough to fill his days, Dad was also a volunteer firefighter in the village of Elginburg.

In accordance with his wishes, cremation has taken place and a service will be held at a later date.
