Dearly loved husband and best friend of Sandra. Loving father of Joanne and Kyle and beloved brother of Valerie and twin brother Denis. Adored Grandad of Lorinne and Kalyssa and father-figure to Pierre.


Fondly remembered by Denis’s wife Cherry and Valerie’s husband Noel. Also greatly missed by his extended family and many friends including fellow Camino walkers.
