Began Chiropractic practice in North Vancouver 1965 in North Vancouver. Lived in Delbrook from 1965 to 2011. Moved to North Burnaby after Sharon's death.
Have a very close family and 6 grandchildren. Sharon and I traveled extensively until her hideous death from cancer in 2011. Retired in 2004.
2009-2011 cared for my ailing wife.
Since her death I have been busy with raising cancer research funds and do the epic two day "Ride to conquer cancer", a brike ride from Vancouver to Seattle to raise money for the BC Cancer Foundation so patients will not have to suffer from Cancer as Sharon and others have.

Happy Birthday Jay. Who would ever thought we would make it this far? Have a great "special" day. You better stop having them or you will get old.

It is always sad to hear of a mentors passing. My condolences to Jane and remaining family members. I moved to North Vancouver with my parents in 1949. We lived in Norgate Park and on my first day of school at Capilano Elementary I passed by Pat's home. He became a great school mate and friend from day one. We walked the "chicken walk" daily from grade 3 until grade 7. Pat was a natural athlete and excellent scholar from the day I met him. He favoured soccer but was good at whatever he did. He was a natural leader and very kind friend. We graduated from elementary and moved on to (what seemed like the big time) junior high at Sutherland School. Pat matured both as a scholar and a popular student. He was elected school president in grade nine at Sutherland. He was a young man with a vision and he never refused a challange.

Pat's parents moved to West Vancouver and I lost contact with him after that. I am elated to read and not surprised of Pat's success in his professional life. It is awfully sad to lose someone of this quality and character but unfortunately these days I (we) are all experiencing the loss of our past friends and loved ones to frequently.

I doubt that any of us that knew Pat will ever forget him. As he moves on to a new phase of his life, where ever we go after death, will be a much greater place to be with Pat.

Hi Duncan:
It turns out that I will be out of town on the 31st so have a happy Birthday and stay out of trouble. lol. My only advice is to stop having Birthdays or you will get as old as I am. All the best, Doug.
