So sorry to hear of your father’s passing. He was truly a unique individual. I remember how well he and your mom treated me during the summers at your place all those years ago, and will always think of him with great fondness.

I’m so sorry to hear about Aubrey, he was a great man, I got to know this man through the services of CTG (Closing the Gap) he touched many peoples lives in Country Moments, I’m glad to have had an experience with him, he always knew how to stir the pot and get away with it 🙂 Such a kind and gentleman, he will be greatly missed by myself and the staff from Country Moments 🙁
So very sorry to hear about Aub. He was, and always will be, a big, happy, part of our family. He made me laugh every single time I saw him. Please give my sympathies to the rest of the family.
All the best,
Dave & Family — I first met your dad (Aubrey) when he arrived at Country Moments a few years back and soon found out that he was also an entertainer and soon had him playing his harmonica and singing (You Are My Sunshine) with our band. I cherished my time and stories with him. Sorry for your loss
Rest In Peace dear friend
Dave and family: So very sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing Dave….thinking of you at this difficult time. I will remember your Dad when he came into the office and always had a hello and a story to tell us. Take care…my thoughts are with you and the rest of the family.
Deepest Sympathies Dave and family. Ted & Lynda Hill
I met Mr. Percival when I was working during the summer of 85 with the MTO. We spent the season together but our friendship seem to endure years later and he taught me many things. I remember his humour the most during this time, I was a young kid and he had nothing but patience with any of us and it took lots as I remember. He was a true gentleman on every front. I’m sad to see his passing . RIP Sir… condolences to the family and all that had the pleasure to meet and talk with him.
I have such great memories of Aub and loved to talk with him. He had great stories of his, my dads and my uncles exploits as younger men. He always made me laugh. Being at the hunt camp with him and my dad and Sam just put a smile on my face watching and listening to them. I will miss Aub. He was a good man and great friend to my Dad and uncles and our family.
A great and true family friend to the extended Muzzi clan. Deepest condolences.
A big hearted and beautiful kind man. My condolences to the family.
One of our favourite people. Rest well Aub.
Hugs to you Dave.
John and Debi Davis

Dave: The battle is over for Aub and he is with the love of his life. I am so happy that Aub made Country Moments his home so many years ago and he was able to have the love and care of Audrey until the end. We loved his smile, sense of humour and of course his stories. And Aub had stories.!!
Aub made Country Moments very special indeed.
