Dad is known for his gentle demeanor and always had a smile for you. He enjoyed good stories and having a good laugh. He loved his grandchildren very much and takes great pride in watching his children and grandchildren winning at life. He enjoyed the simple pleasures and always found the positive aspect in everything. He believed in hard work, determination, and mind-over-matter philosophies. Dad was a jack of all trades, there was no job he couldn’t do. He was employed constructing the Treaty four Governance Center, then given the Maintenance Supervisor position, which he held for over 20 years. The tipi at the T4 Governance center is always affectionately called “Mushum’s Tipi” by his grandchildren.

The family thanks the Regina General Hospital 6F nursing staff for the kind and compassionate care of our dad.
