My wife Andja and I retired to Wasaga Beach, and have both children living near. Our eldest son a teacher, is the Business Dept head at SCI, and the younger son a successful Dr of Chiropractic with offices in Collingwood at The Shipyards Medical Arts Center.

Born in North Bay, Greg spent the majority of his studying and working years in the Southern climes of Ontario – mostly in Toronto. A 45 year career running a family company in the Medical / Surgical Supply business was very rewarding. The company was national and afforded lots of travel to many Canadian destinations over the years as well as the opportunity to meet many interesting characters. Eventually immigrating back north again to Collingwood in the late 2000’s, Greg counts skiing in the winter and biking – both pedal and motor – in the summer as his current interests.

John & Sharron moved to Collingwood upon John’s retirement in the Fall of 2009 after 20+ years in Aurora, ON, and an earlier sojourn in Beaconsfield, Que.
John had a career in sales and marketing, mainly in the electronic security systems industry. They settled in Collingwood because John is interested in skiing, both downhill and Nordic, and had an old family connection in Collingwood. (He had a summer job in the Collingwood Shipyard in 1963!)
In summer he rows with the Collingwood Rowing Club, and year round tries to counterbalance an otherwise dissolute lifestyle by working out regularly at the YMCA.
