He was born in West Clifford on March 1, 1918, the eldest son of James and Viola (Selig) Garber. He proudly served his country in the Second World War overseas with the Canadian Army with the occupation force in Holland. Shortly after his return, he started work with the Nova Scotia Power Commission, first as a meter reader and later as a linesman, retiring after 30 years of service. He spent his retirement years busy in his woodlot, Christmas tree lot and large vegetable garden. He enjoyed fishing and hunting in days gone by. He devoted his life to his family, friends and community. He was a faithful member of Hemford Emmanuel United Church, resigning as church treasurer in January 1997 after having served since 1946. He recently received his 50 year jewel from his long association with Hillcrest Masonic Lodge No. 93, New Germany. In November 1996, he was presented with a life membership from the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 102, New Germany. He was one of the founding members of the Hemford Fire Department and served on the Hemford Cemetery Committee for many years, and was active in the community whenever there was a need.

He is survived by daughters, Gertrude (Ian Urquhart), Dartmouth; Dr. Gayle Garber (Dr. Paul Gillard), Kelligrews, NL; grandsons, Matthew Gillard, Ottawa, Ont.; David Gillard, Kelligrews, NL; sisters, Margie Roulston, Elmsdale; Phyllis Mailman, Bridgewater; sister-in-law, Stella Garber, West Clifford; several nieces and nephews; and devoted friend and housekeeper, E. Marie Snyder. He was predeceased by wife, Charlotte (Silver); sisters, Sylvia Crouse, Ruby Hubley, and brother, Arthur.

He was blessed with caring neighbours and good friends who were quick to help him, especially in the last two years. Those who knew him will remember him as a man of unfailing principles, sincerity and determination. He possessed a strong work ethic and showed a love of nature and animals. He lived and died with quiet strength and simplicity and we celebrate his 87 years of life. We give thanks for a life well and truly lived.

PARSONS, Ronald (Archpriest)
- 78, died in his home on October 5, 2005. Born in Curling, NL, on March 20, 1927, he was a son of the late Charles Edward Parsons and Reatha Caroline (Pennel), and one of 17 children. He was predeceased by his wife, Rosina Anne (Mills). They were married for 49 years, and those who knew them can attest to their passion and love for each other.

As a very young man, he fought in the Second World War overseas with the Canadian Army (1943-1945). After leaving the military, he served as a priest in the Anglican Church for 35 years, living in various locations in Alberta, Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia. During a portion of this time, he also worked as a field officer for the Secretary of State Department. In 1990 he was ordained as a Christian Orthodox priest, serving in this capacity until his death. He was a much-loved spiritual leader of Saint Antonio's Antiochian Parish and his presence will be sorely missed. There is no doubt that his longevity was due in large part to the love and support he received from members on this congregation and other member of Christian Orthodox churches throughout the world. He was an active supporter of workers' rights, most notably as spokesperson for the striking fishers in Canso in the early 1970s. His commitment to social justice remained throughout his lifetime.

He will be remembered for his zest for life, his many and varied interests, and his kind and generous spirit. He is survived by children, Warren, Spry Bay; Stephen, Halifax; Jocelyn, Lake Echo; Timothy, Cole Harbour; Marianne, Hackett's Cove; Michael, Dartmouth; Leah, Cole Harbour; grandchildren, Blaine, Lake Echo; Christopher, Lake Echo; Alicia, Meaghers Grant; Heather, Yellowknife; Benjamin, Halifax; Angella, Dartmouth; Veronica, Toronto; Rehtaeh, Cole Harbour; Temyson, Cole Harbour; great-grandchildren, Kyla, Lake Echo; Connor, Lake Echo; siblings, Dorothy, Toronto; Betty, Point Aconi; Martha, Toronto; Diane, Toronto; Gordon, Newfoundland; Charles, Toronto; David, Calgary; Paul, St. John's. Family will be in attendance for visitation 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. today in Saint Antonio's Church located at 2455 Windsor St., Halifax. The funeral will be held on Saturday, October 8, at 11 a.m. in St. Antonio's Church. Interment will take place at a later date in Saint Peter and Paul Antiochian Orthodox Church Cemetery, Charlottetown, P.E.I. Service under the care of J.
