    I have many fond memories of my uncle
    He worked at the nickel mine for many years.
    He would visit us in Weymouth falls every summer and work hard around the homestead.
    I can remember him saying “Fine and Dandy” after a meal .I would always chuckle Afterwards
    I’m going to miss him dearly. He will not be forgotten.

    Love Sheldon

    I was very sad to hear that one of my favourite uncles had passed… He was always friendly and happy when I used to see him during the summer months when I was growing up in
    Weymouth Falls… Going to miss him dearly…

    I had the priveledge of meeting him many times when I was a kid growing up in Sudbury (back in the 60’s and 70’s). He was a layed back happy man. I was very good friends with his son Kevin. (I went by Herb Scott Low)
    I am trying to connect with both Kevin and Otis.
    If anyone has that information please let me know (Sault seems to be a different Kevin Cain?)
    God bless him as he is now in a better place with God.
