  1. Alf was a courtesy uncle to my siblings and I and a great friend of my Father’s (Gord Lambert). they banded birds together and hunted deer in a camp at Pelaw Lake Camp in Haliburton Forest. As kids we alwasy loved going to visit Uncle Alf and his sisters. He generally had the steam up by the time we arrived and a ride around his orchard was our reward for visiting. Lovely man, great sense of humour and lots of fun to be around. I will alwasy remember him very fondly!
