Wish was in the army for 30 years and proudly served with the Black Watch. Wish was the life of a party. He loved people and dogs. In his younger years he played soccer and hockey. He loved to fish, hunt and go camping. He golfed, curled, square danced, cross country skied, played darts and loved a good game of cards. At Christmas time he dressed up like Santa for the kids and was loved by all. He loved to cook and entertain. He volunteered with the Boyscouts, the Poppy campaign and helped with the Veterans.
