Lou Gehrig's Disease? ... but you don't even like baseball
Lou Gehrig's Disease is slowly taking my friend, David Grant, away from us.
I put this book of memories, photographs, and stories together to show him how much of an impact he had on the life of his friends, his family, his relatives, his neighbours and me.
I grew up on the farm in Chlemsford, Ontario. I left the farm in 1959 to attend the University of Toronto, where I obtained a Bachelor of Applied Science in Industrial Engineering, I spent the first 18 years of my career with the T.Eaton Company Limited, in Toronto and Montreal, where I rose to be General Merchandise Manager for Eastern Canada. I left Eaton's in 1981 to join Comark Inc, where I created and became the President of Brettons Inc., a chain of high-end apparel and accessories stores. After leaving Brettons and spending two years consulting to the retail industry, I opened a Pro Hardware store in Peterborough, Ontario, which I operated with my wife June until 2001. June and I now live in Orillia, Ontario, where I work part-time as a Project Manager for a construction company.
