Condolence from Louise wasson on July 28th, 2021 8:55 am

Dear Scobey Family
I was saddened to hear of Maurice’s passing but couldn’t help to smile with the memories of Maurice. He was a delightful character with a remarkable memory for telephone numbers! He certainly loved license plates and VW tailpipes! I worked at KRRC for many years and Maurice greeted me most days. A few years After Maurice moved to Pugwash I traveled to the ARC on business. I can still see Maurice running across the yard hollering my name and saying he was so happy that I had come to visit him. I spent an hour with Maurice showing me around his home before I did my business. I was very glad to hear that Maurice had moved closer to home where family could visit more often. RIP Maurice. I will always smile when I remember you.
