Age came to Canada with his family in 1951 from Fryslan. He worked for several area farmers before he found his love of construction at Gaffney's in Stratford. He married Marie Wester on April 8, 1972 and together they took over the family dairy farm and raised their three daughters. Farming was his pride and joy. He was an active member of the community and served on the Boards of the Mitchell Co-op and St. Patrick's Cemetery, Kinkora for many years. With the wheat in the ground, his corn harvested and his grandchildren forever in his heart, we bid him goodbye one final time.
