Some of my earliest childhood memories go back to my Uncle Ron, my mother's youngest brother. Like me, Uncle Ron was a teenager when his mother (my grandmother, Effie Sturge) died. When my parents married he moved to Corner Brook to live with them and by the early sixties had married Norma Penney and started his own family. This photo of baby Janice, their first born, Norm, my Mom and Ron appears to have been taken during a birthday party at our house on Premier Drive.
Ron and Norm would come to our house on Saturday nights to watch hockey on tv. They were big fans of the Leafs and the Corner Brook Royals. Many an night I dozed off to sleep to the sound of Norm whooping it up when the Leafs had scored.
