We are very worry for your loss. I have fond memories of fishing with Cec on mill lake and visits to the cottage on Bell lake. He was truly was larger than life and one of the friendliest and outgoing people I've known. He gave back to his community through his involvement in several great volunteer and community groups. We have all lost someone special.
