Dad always supported his family with encouragement and wisdom. Jiggs worked for the Department of Highways at the Tillsonburg detachment for 35 years, retiring as Supervisor. He and Joy purchased and ran the North Hall Snack Bar for a number of years before moving down the road to enjoy their retirement. They spent time travelling, especially around North Bay, fishing and hunting. Jiggs spent his days cutting wood and repairing lawn mowers, both making him some pocket change for perch dinners at the Mill and ice cream. He always enjoyed going for a drive just to see what had changed since the last trip. Special thanks to 2nd floor nursing staff at Tillsonburg Hospital for their care.
