I have wonderful memories of Ambrose during his time with the British Columbia Automobile Association (BCAA). I credit Ambrose with bringing the Towing Industry together back in 1980's. We had many great times over the years. R.I.P. my friend.

I lived in Pahrump with my husband and knew Ambrose when I was on the Board to No To Abuse. He was a fine gentleman and it was a privilege to know him. I enjoyed working with him and the staff of No To Abuse. I moved a long time ago, but tried to keep in touch with him. He was always upbeat and we shared a lot of laughs. He talked a lot about Sharon. Ambrose also spoke of his brother who was, I believe, a Psychiatrist in Canada. I did not know that he had passed away. I am very saddened by his passing. I was looking at my calendar and always sent Ambrose a birthday card in June. I decided today to call him and Sharon told me he had passed away. My sincere condolences, sympathy along with prayers to Sharon, his immediate family and friends. God bless. Gerry Nunn
