  • Notes 
    • Arthur, my grandfather,was also quite entrepreneurial but never achieved the success of his father. He grew up in a very wealthy home and also had the opportunity to be quite poor as he worked as a miner in Kirkland Lake in the 1930s. He always said rich was better! He eventually worked in real estate in Ajax and had a successful convenience store/deli which returned him to the work of his greatgrandfather! He also had a second wife during this period which is why he is buried in Wilberforce.
