To my mate Grumpsky,
My heart is broken, has a huge hole in it and I am lost without you around.
You inspired a lot of people with your easy going attitude and willingness to help and this is what drew people to you and why they all wanted to be around you.
An excellent father and family man, a great sportsman, a person with a wealth of knowledge on all things outdoors but most of all one of the best fishermen that I have ever been around.
Our annual ritual of chasing Cod in the wee hours of the morning down alongside the pylons at Brimin drinking a few beverages will be what I will miss the most. Rest assured even though you won’t be there with me anymore I will make sure that our tradition lives on through Jayden and Trent.
Brother, you will be sorely missed but not forgotten.
So stop dawdling around get your rod and gear together and “Go Fishing” where the fish are plentiful and endless.
Your loving brother.
