I am sure the family will miss spending the holidays with you and that your chair will seems very empty at the Christmas celebrations this year.  We have made a donation to the Bethell Hospice in your memory and they will be reading your name out as they light the Christmas tree there in December 2019.  

Steve's Eulogy To His Dad

Shared by Steveith Pariby on February 13, 2019

Dad, I already miss the weekly weekend phone calls that we both have enjoyed the past four years.  I miss your voice, your laugh and your always positive attitude. Growing up I remember you taking me to your ballgames, you coming to my ball and hockey games and appreciate you strapping on skates at a father/son hockey game years ago, when hockey was not your sport.  I remember the family vacations that were always fun for the kids but must have been tough for you and mom with 4 kids in the back seat.  Dad, you always provided for your family and I was proud of your business accomplishments.  Thanks Dad, for your strength, morals and love.  Gone but never forgotten.
