Born in St. John's, Mike always said that he had the good sense to move to Corner Brook when only a few days old. Mike was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, brother in law, father in law, son in law, a lawyer, a businessman, a judge, a lover of politics and a proud Newfoundlander. Next to his family, politics was Mike's passion, spending hours reading, watching and discussing all things political. Though Newfoundland remained his favourite country, Mike, in the company of his wife and often his extended family, travelled to over 40 countries and maintained countless friendships all around the world. For all of his short 65 years, Mike lived with 'no regrets' and often stated he would never change a thing in his life. True to his character, Mike remained to the end strong, good humoured, composed for his wife and sons and believed that one must deal with the hand they are given.
He is deeply loved and will be equally missed by his family and numerous life-long friends especially sisters Patricia (George) and Judith, nieces and nephews Susan (Edgar, Emily, Julia and Heather) Steven (Mel), Sara (David, Katie and Thomas), Mary (Ed, Michael and Lauren), Carolyn (Stephane), Janice (Eric), Michael (Megan), special cousin Alexandra Born, mother-in-law Lina Steinmetz, brother-in-law Karl-Hermann Steinmetz, close family friends Gordon and Mary Tizzard, grand-dog ChunJae and so many others.

ROBERTS, PETER JOB- (10 July 1944 - 29 April 2008). Left to mourn his wife, Betty Badcock; his brothers Edward (Eve) and Douglas; his aunt Alice Roberts; his nephew Clair, his nieces Kerby, Catherine, Caroline, Jessica and Alison; his cousins Avalon Roberts (Tom Bowen) and Robert Giannou; and Betty’s sister-in-law Genie and her daughters Janet and Jill.
Peter was richly blessed with a wide range of talents and skills. He was a boat builder, who took great pride in building his 45-foot steel-hulled brigantine DOWN NORTH, after first teaching himself welding, carpentry and sail-making. He then sailed her joyfully in northern waters. A skilled painter and print-maker, he took great pleasure in recording the coastal scenery of Newfoundland and Labrador. He was an enthusiastic golfer, who took pride in his good rounds while being quick to acknowledge that “golf is a very humbling game,” as he took the good and the bad shots as they came. He taught himself to play the guitar, and was the first to admit that he couldn’t sing on key.
Although Peter was a gentle man, he was strong-minded and willing to stand up for his opinions and he was a fierce competitor. He played hockey, and chose to be a goaltender, playing for Prince of Wales College. But his greatest moment came when he and his teammates were the first Newfoundland team to play in an international Peewee All-Star Invitational Tournament, in Goderich, Ontario in 1956. The other highlight of his hockey career came when he was knocked unconscious during a rough-and-ready game in the Roddickton-Englee-Conche-Main Brook league. As he lay on the ice, somebody yelled “go get the doctor”. A moment later, they realized that Peter was the only doctor for a hundred miles either side of the rink. He recovered quickly, with no ill effects, and dined out on the story for the rest of his life.
Above all, Peter was a medical doctor and he was a Newfoundlander. These were his defining passions. He came to medicine the long-way round, notwithstanding the medical traditions of his family - his father, his only uncle and most of their siblings and cousins had become doctors and nurses. He first earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in history from the University of New Brunswick, winning high marks for his account of Newfoundland’s turbulent mid-19th century politics.
Peter became a medical doctor because he wanted to help people. He was drawn to the North, and went to work with the International Grenfell Association. He worked in Northern Newfoundland and Labrador for all his professional life. He became the Executive Director of the IGA, and latterly of Grenfell Regional Health Services, and thus responsible for the provision of health care for many thousands of his fellow Newfoundlanders and Labradorians. Sir Wilfred Grenfell was the first to hold the position. Peter, the fifth and last to hold it, was the first and only Newfoundlander to do so. A modest man, he sought neither recognition nor honours. But those who know the Northern Peninsula and Coastal Labrador are quick to give testimony to his achievements, as a doctor, as a leader and as a friend.
Peter’s father, Dr. Harry Roberts, taught him and his brothers that much was expected from those to whom much was given. Peter honoured this precept, serving as President of the Newfoundland and Labrador Medical Association and as the founding Chair of the Community Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador.
Those who knew Peter will not be surprised that he left firm and precise instructions for his funeral. He has been cremated: his ashes will be disposed of later, as he wished. Betty and his family invite his friends to join them in a service to celebrate his life, to be held at Gower Street United Church in St. John’s at 2:30 PM on Thursday, 1 May. They will be happy to greet all at the service at a reception to be held in the Church’s Lecture Hall after the service.
Betty asks all who wish to make a donation in Peter’s memory to give to either the Community Foundation or a charity of their choice.

Life is but a stopping place,
A pause in what’s to be.
A resting place along the road,
To sweet eternity.
We all have different journeys,
Different paths along the way.
We are all meant to learn some things,
But never meant to stay.
Our destination is a place,
Far greater than we know,
Where one will find an everlasting peace,
Together with the Lord.

WALKER, James Lee, Ph.D.,
1944 - 2008
Husband, Father, Brother,
Grandfather, Friend,
Psychology Professor,
Research Consultant

As a young boy working at his father’s grocery store in Wesley, Iowa, Jim Walker discovered he was not suited to become his family’s third generation of grocers - deciding instead to pursue the road less traveled. That road took him to Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska where majoring in psychology and biology, he “learned how to learn” (Something he always felt was the most important lesson to be acquired in University.) Returning to the North Dakota roots of his mother’s family in 1966, he was accepted into the psychology graduate program at the University of North Dakota (UND). It was there that Jim fell in love with fellow psychology graduate student, Lilly Schubert.
Before earning his doctorate in physiological psychology in 1970 Jim received the prestigious Chester Fritz Scholarship. As well, he anticipated public pressure against smoking by a generation, with research examining the influence of peer pressure on the smoking habits of students and pioneered the use of digital technology in the study of neuronal brain activity.
A newly minted “Dr. Jim” accepted his first academic position as a UND Assistant Professor of Psychology but was quickly recruited by pioneering Brandon psychologist, Dr. Curly Tyler - accepting the position of Assistant Professor of Psychology at Brandon University in 1971.
Jim and Lilly always appreciated Dr. Tyler’s offer of equal employment in the same department to a married couple - a practice that was uncommon at the time. Besides teaching courses in introductory psychology to thousands of students during his years at BU, he also taught physiological psychology, motivation and experimental design, and helped develop pioneering courses in health psychology and human sexuality.
As Chair of the Psychology Department he worked with Lilly to complete a comprehensive study of farm-stress. The resulting national press coverage had the couple presenting farm stress workshops to farmers throughout Western Canada and contributions from their farm-stress work helped Brandon University play a major role in the delivery of the Canadian Rural Transition Program.
With the arrival of his son Thomas Walker (T. J.) in July 1975, Jim started down the path of parenthood. A proud and involved father, Jim was often the listening, nurturing, care-taking parent at home. Athletics were never before on Jim’s radar, but he encouraged his young son’s interests in tee-ball and later in canoeing and kayaking. As is the case with many interested young fathers, he was quickly recruited as a volunteer and soon found himself organizing the tee-ball season and later served as a official at Regattas and the President of the Manitoba Paddling Association; helping with the early development of the association’s beautiful new boathouse on the Red River.
His route changed when Lilly became the Director of the University of Manitoba Counselling Centre. His reputation within the Manitoba educational community helped produce a steady stream of research contracts and he was instrumental in developing the Canadian Undergraduate Survey Consortium; a research program that now includes 32 Canadian Universities. The Winnipeg years also saw major consulting/research projects for the Roblin Commission, reviewing future roles of technology in University Education in Manitoba, and a national survey of International Students for the Canadian Bureau for International Education. Blazing a trail in the use of behavioural treatment techniques, Jim also worked extensively with one of the first Special Care Units for Alzheimer’s patients in Winkler Manitoba.
In the summer of 2000, with Lilly now the Dean of Student Affairs at Memorial University of Newfoundland, Jim embraced the adventure of traveling an unknown path and soon found himself hiking the breathtaking coastal trails of the Avalon with his beloved Cairn terrier, Wizard. Becoming an avid student of the popular Newfoundland pastime of home wine and beer brewing he would often smile, and call it one of his “most satisfying hobbies.”
With the diagnosis of bowel cancer in July 2004, Jim’s course altered once again. Surviving two surgeries and a pulmonary embolism, he discovered that the cancer was untreatable with further surgery. Ever the scientist he approached this disease with his analytic, persistent problem-solving resolve, using medical and non-traditional therapies to combat the disease. The demands of chemotherapy may have forced him housebound, but he responded by resuming his interest in daily piano practice and regained many of his previously lost keyboard skills. He spent time in financial management and delighted in the continued growth and evolution of his granddaughter Maya. A voracious and eclectic reader, daily discussions of ideas kept him vibrantly engaged in social commentary.
He met death, as he had lived his life, with educated determination; ending his journey on April 14, 2008.
The Walker family will be accepting visitors at Carnell’s Funeral Home on Friday, April 18, 2008 from 10 a.m. - 12 noon. A celebration of Jim’s life will be held at 2:00 PM, Friday April 18th, at Carnell’s Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the James L. Walker Scholarship fund at Memorial University. To send a message of condolence or to sign the memorial guest book please visit www.carnells.com
