Burgis Beach residents were able to locate his truck on the other side of the lake in the fall and had some of the local guys tow it over to the resor, explained Stacey Pfeifer.

“In honour of Metro we wanted to create a little garden in his memory and him starting this little piece of paradise for its residents,” she said.

“The members of the community have all contributed planting trees, donating solar lights and putting in fence posts.”

And the local children got involved too.

“This past weekend the kids in the community contributed by painting rocks that they placed in Metro’s garden,” said Pfeifer.
