Condolence From: Barry Roxburgh
Condolence: I never met Mr Houston but my late father Bill Roxburgh who worked many years for the City of York in Toronto met him at a conference. If I remember their discussion started from a 'where are you from' basis and Des was surprised my father had an Almonte connection through his daughter I law, one of the Rosamond clan. They kept in touch for many years after I believe and my father said he was a really nice man. Our condolences to the family.
Barry & Anne Roxburgh, Lanark

I was so sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. After working with your Dad for a number of years, I truly appreciated how much he cared for Almonte and its residents. Even after I had moved away, anytime visiting Almonte, your Dad would greet me with a big smile and chat. He will be missed. Please take care. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
