Remembering My Father On Remembrance Day 2022

Lest we forget! Ne l’oublions pas! Today, November 11, 2022 is Remembrance Day here in Canada. It is also the 7th anniversary of the passing of my Father, Richard Albert Ward, on November 11, 2015 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Dad was 92 when he died, having been born on September 25, 1923 in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Dad died peacefully. He was sitting watching the evening news with family, enjoying a glass of white wine, and he passed over.

Dad served in the Royal Canadian Navy on the HCMS Wentworth (K331) a River Class frigate. She served primarily as a convoy escort in the Battle of the Atlantic. The Wentworth was based in Pictou, Nova Scotia and he met my Mother there.
