Dave Marrone gave a heartfelt tip of his hat to wife Katie at the St. Catharines-Thorold Chamber of Commerce Business Achievement Awards.
Marrone, owner of Front Row Sports in Thorold, had just been handed the business of the year award for 2010.
"I thank her for her unconditional love and cohabitation with myself in the retail lifestyle," he said to laughs from the crowd at the Quality Hotel Parkway Convention Centre in St. Catharines Thursday night.
Marrone also recognized his mother and father for supporting him when he launched his business 20 years ago.
"Without their support and a little bit of money, I wouldn't have had the confidence to follow through on this venture," he said.
"This is an incredible honour."
