  30. My condolences to the entire family. I have enjoyed playing golf with both Wilf and Murray the past few years after they joined our extended golfing group loosely based in London. Lots of good- natured banter between and about the golfing brothers. I loved Wilf’s sense of humour and was an occasional target of his incisive wit. Best wishes.

  31. Wilf always had a welcoming smile and a warm hug waiting when we arrived at the Park and was a huge part of so many of our favourite memories of Grand Bend – the camp fires, happy hours, pot lucks, and yummy butter tarts and other sweets throughout the years. Judy, you are always in our thoughts and prayers. We send our love to you and our condolences to you and your families.
