A.W. was born, raised and lived most of his full and colourful life in the Comox Valley and told the most entertaining of stories.

A.W. was a long-time member of the Courtenay Legion and the round table at the Arbutus. He leaves behind many memories, friends and probably more stories.

No flowers by request. Donations to a charity of your choice would be appreciated.
