I had the pleasure of getting to know Derald or RSM Balson Retired through his continued efforts with the 2nd Battalion of the Irish Regiment of Canada. He was an inspiring person with his zest for life, bright smile, and warm heart. He will be missed and happy to read that he did not suffer in his passing.

I swam with Derald for a few years at the Gatchell Pool. We would constantly be amazed by his determination, in the middle of winter, to push his walker through the slush in order to swim. One in the water he'd amaze us again with his speed and endurance. He always had a smile on his face. I will miss him
