You could find him at Golden Gate Fields enjoying the horse races, especially on Sundays (Dollar Days).

He is survived by his sisters Florence and Emily; children Peter James (Lorna), Linda Carol (Bruce), Michelle Ann (Lou) and Suzanne Marie (Fred); six grandchildren (Julia, Krissy, Kenny, Radley, Ian and Jack).
