I know this is a long-shot, and I hope someone out there can help. Irving William Legacy was my grandfather and my mother would like to know where he is buried before she passes on. I have been collecting information for my family tree for 15+ years and have never come across his name anywhere. This is what I know.
Irving William Legacy was born in July of 1917 in Quebec, Canada. He had one brother Edward. Their mother (Bernice?)was married 3 times. She left them in an orphanage to go overseas as a nurse. They left the orphanage when Edward was 14 and Irving was 10(so the story goes). Irving married Frances Isobel Grant in Sudbury, Ontario, and they had 4 children. Irving joined the Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders during WWII. He left his wife and children somewhere around 1952 when my mother was 17(she is the oldest)and never returned. I have checked every online cemetery that I can find with no results. If you have ever heard of this man, please contact me.
