The world lost another great Man over the holidays.

Recommended Posts

Truly sorry to hear of the loss of Jack, Nanook.

 

Unfortunately we lost my Dad over the holidays aswell. Although he went quickly, he was in no pain and passed peacefully Dec 26, 2am. In his 60 years he touch many lives with his humour and compassion. He was a retired Toronto Firefighter and he was honoured as such at his funeral.

 

He introduced the love of the outdoors to my brother and I. There was many a day when my Dad would join us on the water. These memories will last forever. He loved downrigging on Lake Ontario, this is where his wishes to be. He will always be in the boat with us and with the others he loved to share the water with. We will miss him dearly.

 

For those who knew/worked with my Dad on OFC, sorry if you are finding out this way. We tried to contact everyone, but with the holidays we had a bit of a hard time.

 

Here are a couple shots of my Dad, man he really loved to fish and spend time with us. Thank you for letting me share and get this out there, makes me feel good. I was/am very proud of him.

Sad news Phil and I'm really sorry for your loss, I know how close you & Paul were to your Dad and you payed him a very nice tribute here.

 

I can't say I ever knew your Dad but we were on the job together for around 3 decades so there's always the possibility we worked together without knowing it.

 

Good to hear the Fire Dept. honoured him like they did.

 

Condolances from my family to yours Phil

Nice to see you have some great memories to keep your Father's image alive and well in your mind Phil. That's all you'll need to work though this bumpy time in your life.

Sorry for your loss Phil... I have also lost a loved one on that date and it makes the holiday season some what difficult... but we have found a way to celebrate her life every year.

Best regards to you and your family.

      Ok, so the only thing missing is the kitchen sink LOL. My son and I had another wonderful weekend, did some fishing, exploring, and harvested some beaked hazelnuts. My CFMOTO is a year old now and I have to say I am super impressed, some of the trails we explored this weekend were through some pretty rough therein and this thing just eats it up. The power steering sure is a blessing for these old arms! We actually managed to wind our way through some very old logging trails, some place

    • Great Week on Nip/Upper French

      Another great week at Sandy Haven Camp on Nip/Upper French.  Been going there for over 35 years and its about as good as it's ever been.   Three generations of Dietz boys hit the Nipissing grand slam.  Boated two muskies, had hooks in two more and numerous follows.   The walleye bite was hot with 40-50 fish days and limits of keepers.   Bass fishing, smallies and largemouth, was real good too.   That place is on fire!

    • Taking smoke fish over to another country

      I was not sure how to title the post,but my question is,is it ok for someone to take smoke fish over to a European country from Canada with them ?  2 day plane travel .My co worker would like for me to smoke some white fish  for the parents to try. Are there any legal things to worry about here ?

    • Great day at Rice Lake

      Hey everyone  We had a great day at Rice lake,  walleye cooperated from the first light, and I was happy to see my buddy getting his first Rice lake walleyes. Wind was there from early morning,  but it only did good for the eyes as they love a little chop. By 11 am we had the limit.  Cheers! Gino
