When he was “on the Job” the dress code was uniforms were worn when on duty. After almost 30 yearsof that, he acquired an aversion to suits. As we are celebrating his life, please dress comfortably. He just didn’t like the colours black or purple.

Sincerest Condolences from all our Retiree Groups go out to his Family and Friends.
