Great article, Valli. Thank you for posting this.
I read this over breakfast, thanks for posting it.
He was actually a beekeeper too though it doesn’t say in the obit.
Sounds like he was a friend of Brother Adam too, which makes him a wonderful person and very likely reliable source of bee information.
I only happened across it as my little man 92 year old I look after was reading the paper - it has a picture of Bees that caught my eye so went and looked up the page.
Sounds like a nice Bloke to get to know.
They say beeks live longer
