From: Betty Lou (Anderson) Clark
Relation: He worked for my Dad - Rex Anderson

Our family would like to send our deepest condolence. I grew to love Hector when I was about 5 years old and he worked for my Dad , Rex Anderson in Raymond. I was amazed at how strong he was. He would take 2 -50 lbs ” chopped barley” pails in each hand and put me on his shoulders and step over the fence to feed the steer. He seemed like a part of the family to me. He was always so kind and soft spoken. To me he was a hero I always admired. I so regret that I did not come and see him when I moved back to Alberta after having lived on Vancouver Island for over 25 years. We pray for your comfort and peace and honor him for the good man he was. There will always be a special place in my heart for him. I believe life is eternal and that I will see him again one day. I look forward to that meeting.
