Farewell Dear Bear


Our dear friend Maurice Leger, also known as Bear the Tinker, left us a few days ago.

Bear was an amazing man whose spirit will live on in those who had the pleasure of knowing him.

He was a caravan dweller, a builder and a master of many things.  He was a gentle, capable man who will be missed.

My sincerest sympathy goes out to his family.

My hope for Bear is that he has a caravan in the sky.  Thank you for all you taught me, and others during this journey through life.

“… and where he’s gone to, but off he goes”

    Sorry to hear this as I grew up with Bear, always wondered what became of him. Thank you for sharing this. Knowed as “RED” from Scoudouc, N.B.

    • Dear Red,
      I am so terribly sorry that I am the carrier of this sad news.
      Please do tell me about little Bear. I bet he was always a big person even when his size not in keeping with the nick-name.
      With a tip of the hat to you sir,

    What a beautiful man, with a soul full of love, a voice melodic and soothing to ones heart. I miss u Tinkerman may we all meet in the Heavan some golden summer evening. Blessings

  4. I didn’t know Bear but he looks like a very special spiritual entity.

  5. He lived his dream to the fullest! He had no regrets. I wish I had been fortunate enough to know him. I know he has a special caravan in the sky! I noticed on his shelf some angels. He believed!

    • Yes he was a big believer in alternate places. I think he may be out walking the woods with Bigfoot. I really hope so anyway! It is too bad you did not meet him Shirley, he was a real dreamer and doer.

    I’m very sorry for your loss, my friend. I (obviously) didn’t know him, but I know you (through here 😉 ) and your heart, so this pains mine as well
