January 14th. Happy Birthday Dad

Today would have been my father's 106th birthday. While I never expected him to live to 106, he never expected to survive a Second World War German prisoner-of-war camp, let alone live to 92!

Those who met my dad knew him to be a true gentleman, with a great sense of humour. He was the sort of person who always kept his word, and couldn't understand why someone would expect a reward for returning something that wasn't theirs.

He was a fan of Edward de Bono, and enjoyed creative thinkers.

He always wanted to be a journalist but for much of his life was a barber, before becoming a librarian in York University's Scott Library, thanks to the initiative of my sister Estelle Paget www.kidcarecanada.org

While I miss him, I'm glad he didn't live long enough to see Donald Trump as president. He'd be so disgusted! Happy Birthday dad!
