Wilbur was a giant of a man but a teddy bear at heart. He loved to putter outside in his garden or the garage. He enjoyed dancing, being social and he was as sharp as a whip.
The family would like to thank the staff at Algoma Manor with a special thank you to his worker, Resident Aid Katherine Montgomery.

Cremation has taken place. At Wilbur’s request, there will be no services.
