    Verna and family..I am so sad to read that Alex has passed away. I had the privilege of being his barber for six years. He was such a sweet kind gentle man who loved to share stories with me of his trapping days. I had an article framed on my wall about his trapping and so many people would read it and admire him. His wonderful warm smile I shall always remember. RIP Alex... Debbie from Econo Barbershop.

    We send our love, prayers and deepest sympathies to you. Your Dad is with Jesus and in the best place possible but we understand it's always difficult to say goodbye to a deeply loved parent. He was a kind and gracious man and will be missed by many. May happy memories and the wonderful hope we have in our Saviour bring a measure of comfort to you.
    With love from, Gloria and Ron Fanslau

    I have many fond memories of Mr. T.....one such memory is when he hired us to pick cherries at his orchard to make money so we could go to summer camp. At the end of a long day picking he would load mine and my siblings bikes into the back of his truck and drive us home. We were in our early teens at the time but I remember his warm demeanor. All through the years he was always friendly and liked to visit. Thinking of you all and will see you at Mr. Tingstads' celebration of life.
