  1. God Bless You Oscar, great stevedore and always got along with him and learned a few from him. Only got mad at him once. My father Lloyd Langill, Gerry Chabot and my self were working a ship in Vancouver. Oscar was foremen at this time. The superintendent fired Oscar because Oscar wasn’t doing the job like the superintendent told him. Oscar went home after being fired. We didn’t find out till 5 pm that he had been fired. We would of went home to if had of known.
