ARCHIBALD, Lloyd Cleveland
Poppy lived life to the fullest through the love of family, friends, food (especially at Smitty's), good fun and many famous stories. He was a community minded person who served through the establishment of a private hotel business with his beloved wife, Grace, government committees on the fishery in Newfoundland, and a number of other personal contributions. In his earlier married life, he helped with the development of the family farming business, Archibald Farms Ltd., in the 1950's to the 1970's. After retirement he lived in Belleville, Ont., Miramichi, N.B., and finally in Halifax with his son Greg and family.
On a spiritual note, Lloyd drew closer to God in his final years, re-establishing his relationship with Christ kindled through the church family of First Congregational Church of Halifax and sustained by nights with Billy Graham, a lifetime hero.
Many thanks to the health care team of Dr. John F. Archibald, family doctor; the Palliative Care Service, VON and Continuing Care, Life Care, and the Canadian Red Cross workers, whose exceptional professional home support and care enabled Lloyd to experience a peaceful home death surrounded by loving family.

HYNES, Niles Raymond
In the Second World War, he served as a marine engineer on ships sheltering in Halifax Harbour, working long shifts to refit them for sea duty. From 1944 he sailed as an engineer onboard the tanker S.S. Point Peelee Park and other Imperial Oil tankers, carrying fuel oil to ports in both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. Then, for several years following the end of the war, he oversaw the disposal of Canadian navy ships which had been mothballed by the War Assets Corporation in Shelburne Harbour. He married his wife, the late Catherine Muriel "Betty" Wright, in 1946. When the Shelburne posting ended, he joined the staff of Fairey Aviation Ltd., in Eastern Passage, where he rose to the position of Vice-President. He represented Fairey Aviation in federal government defense contracts, notably the supply of hydraulics for the Canadian-made fighter aircraft CF-100. While with Fairey Aviation, his hands-on approach to management resulted in a flight in a CF-100 with famed test pilot Janus Zurakowski at the controls.
He and Betty lived for a time in Ottawa where Niles served as the Fairey Aviation representative to the Canadian government. Their only child, Liana, was born in Halifax on March 11, 1948. Retiring from Fairey Aviation in 1969, Niles and Betty traveled to Europe and acquired an extensive property on the Costa del Sol in Spain near the village of Mijas. The property contained five villas, which Niles developed and marketed over a period of time. He learned Spanish and became a well-known figure in Mijas. He also became President of the British Society located in the area, and he and Betty began a lifelong affair in Spain with the game of golf.
Seeking yet another challenge in 1976, Niles joined the staff of International Housing Limited, (IHL, an E.P. Taylor company), in Lagos, Nigeria, where the company built specially-designed concrete housing in many villages in the country. He continued with IHL, moving from Spain to Fort Lauderdale, Fla., where he became Vice-President of the firm representing their interests abroad. He and Betty lived for a time in Hong Kong in the development of IHL's business in China. Niles and Betty returned to their roots in 1987, acquiring a property in Lake Echo where both became members of the Grandview Golf Club. Niles also became a member of the Lake Echo Lions' Club where he served proudly and spearheaded the committee responsible for the replacement of the Lake Echo Recreation Centre.
Niles was a "Life Member" of the Lions' Club at the time of his passing. Niles was also an adventurer. He took to the sea and its dangers without fear. In 1947, at the request of a New York investor, he was the engineer on a pair of ocean-going tugs, purchased from War Assets, and being delivered from Shelburne to Laurenco Marques in East Africa. As the tugs alternated tows to conserve enough fuel for the transfer across the Atlantic, a severe storm parted the tow line, resulting in a need for many innovative decisions, on very rough seas, to re-establish the tow and still manage to successfully complete the delivery of the vessels on time! Niles was also a self-taught and highly competitive sailing skipper, acquiring the New York "30" 42 ft racing sloop "Linnet" which he raced in both harbour and ocean competitions. Then he became known as an avid skipper of Sambro Light while he was Commodore of the Bedford Basin Yacht Club in 1969.
One of Niles' most recent cherished adventures and memories was a trip to visit Joe, his brother-in-law, and Lynn, where he had the tremendous enjoyment of skippering Joe's Yacht "Goose", from Pacific Playgrounds around the island of Mittlenatch and serving as a dignitary with Commodore Joe Wright during the sail past for the Campbell River Yacht Club annual regatta. "It was great to have the tiller in hand again!" he said.
Throughout his life, Niles made many friends and contacts. He maintained a list of people he'd met all over the world and made the claim he could find someone to share a drink or dinner with in any city in the world!
Niles' wife, Betty, predeceased him in 2001, after 55 years of a loving marriage. He is survived by his only child, daughter, Liana (Brian Heaney); his grandchildren, Pamela Jane (Greg) Becker, San Diego, Calif.; Jennifer Christine Heaney, Toronto, Ont.; Brian Niles Bernard (Denise La-Marche) Heaney, Atlanta, Ga.; great-grandchildren, Bennett, Katie and Matthew Heaney, Atlanta, Ga.; Kyle and Tyler Becker, San Diego, Calif.; brothers, Warwick (Lynette), Perth, Ont.; David (Doris, deceased), Lake Echo, and Peter (Carol), Truro. During his lifetime, Niles was very close to Betty's family, sister, Doll, her husband Jerry Baillie and their daughters Lynn and Cathy, Dartmouth; brother-in-law, Joe and Lynn Wright, Campbell River, B.C., and Joe's children, Stephen, Michael, Rebecca and Joseph Niles.
Niles was a lover of music and literature, and in his latter years showed appreciation of the poet Minnie Louise Haskins, and her poem "The Gate of the Year": "I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year 'Give me a light that I may tread softly into the unknown.' And he replied, 'Go into the darkness and put your hand into the hand of God that shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way!"
Niles will be missed greatly by all, but cherished and remembered for his adventuresome spirit and unrelenting love for family and friends. Memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Canadian National Institute for the Blind.
La FAVE (Moulton), Catherine Mabel "Babs"
Catherine was a daughter of the late William Moulton (of Carbonear) and Mary Catherine Greene (of St. John's). Dearly beloved wife of the late Arthur La Fave (August 20, 2006); loving mother of Ronald and his wife Marilyn; dear grandmother of Chantal and Michael and his wife Samantha. She was predeceased by her brothers, Randal, Burt, Gordon and Sidney. She is survived by her sister, Louise O'Connell, Dartmouth, as well as many cousins and nieces.
Born in 1919 in Burgeo, N.L., she moved to and grew up in Sydney Mines, Cape Breton. She was a Sydney telephone operator and Arthur was an RCAF wireless operator who had to meet "that beautiful voice". She married Arthur September 7, 1942, and accompanied him to Botwood, N.L., and Winnipeg. At the end of the war they moved to Toronto and gave birth to Ronald in 1946. Built a loving and beautiful home themselves in Willowdale (Toronto) and resided happily there for over 50 years.
Catherine was actively involved with the Catholic Women's League at St. Edward's Parish. She continued strong in her faith as a parishioner at St. Gabriel's Passionist Parish. She worked in the fashion industry for over 20 years and enjoyed maintaining that interest throughout her retirement. Catherine, like Arthur, learned many of her life lessons through the ravages of the Great Depression. Always very independent and determined, she modeled for her family those same strong moral and social values carried throughout her life.
Catherine was blessed with lifelong friends since childhood. She died as she lived, never wavering, ever loyal to her family and friends, doing it her way and always with refinement and integrity. The La Fave family would like to express their thanks to the dedicated doctors, nurses and staff at North York General Hospital, Wilma who assisted with her care and Esther, Victorian Order of Nurses. Special and heartfelt thanks to Dr. Linda Saunders and her caring staff. Catherine very much appreciated your tireless caring compassion and special relationship over all these years. Thank you Father "Paul" (Cusack C.P., Pastor) for always being there for Catherine. We are so very grateful to have participated in her life. Goodbye dear Catherine, you are with Arthur and the Lord, forever in our hearts.

TREMILLS, James Archibald "Jim"
Jim was educated at Bishop Field College and Memorial University. He left Newfoundland to complete his Engineering degree at the University of Michigan where he studied Aeronautics. Jim returned to "The Rock" thereafter to work on the highroads for a summer, and then began his career as a scientist at Canadair in Montreal, where he remained for 14 years. In Montreal, he married and started what would grow to be a sizable family, but in 1964, Jim felt the pull of the Atlantic again, and moved to Halifax, resuming his career at the Naval Research Establishment, which became the Defence Research Establishment Atlantic and latterly DRDC Atlantic. Early retirement in 1988 enabled Jim to pursue with vigor his many interests and concerns, especially photography, gardening and support of various environmental and animal welfare organizations. Jim was an ardent oenophile, and was encouraged in his endeavour by his colleagues in The Wine Circle. He was keenly interested in old clocks and time pieces. He appreciated the arts, particularly works of Nova Scotia and Newfoundland paintings, photographs and prints. From his college days he learned to love classical music, and in particular the music of Mozart and Beethoven, and the pipe organ repertoire. He often cooked supper as his wife pursued a bachelor degree in pipe organ performance.
