He loved golfing,English football,watching birds soar, waltz music,his Llaso Apso dogs,taking long walks by the river Tay in Dundee and travelling the world.He passed on his love of football to his Canadian family.
He had a marvellous witty sense of humour and was very observant of the world around him.
