Gerald was born in Grand Falls NF and during the Second World War was a member of the Newfoundland Forestry Unit stationed in Scotland and then the Royal Canadian Air Force stationed in England. While there he married Eileen Gilder and they returned to Grand Falls. From there the young family moved to St. John's during the 50's and 60's where he worked with Robin Hood Flour Mills. The family eventually settled in Gander. Gerald was always an active member of his community. While in Grand Falls he was a member of Masonic Lodge Northclift. In Gander he was an integral part of the community spear-heading the 770 Air Cadet Squadron, was instrumental in the development of the Golden Legion Manor senior citizens' complex in Gander and was an active associate member of the Gander Officer's Mess.

Gerald worked tirelessly to remind us all of the tremendous sacrifice made by men and women during the World Wars, serving for several years as the Legion's Sergeant at Arms and parade commander. In that capacity he organized and managed Remembrance Day parades, sang the Airmen's prayer at remembrance ceremonies and gave countless talks in local schools to young people, all in an effort to keep the tragedy and futility of war fresh in the minds of us all.

FOLEY, Peter - With heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of Peter Francis Foley, he was 54 years old. He is survived by his mother Beulah Foley of Harbour Grace, Nfld.; sisters: Diane (Tom) Mahoney, Suzanne (Trevor) Williams and brother Michael (Barbara) Foley. Left to mourn is his one and only love, wife Bernice and their children: Nicole (Andy Freiheit) Foley, Jacqueline Foley and Bernard Foley, and the apples of his eye, 20 month old Grandson Parker Freiheit. Peter was predeceased by his father Bernard Foley in 1971. That same year at the age of 16 he met his sweetheart and soul mate Bernice, she was 14. In 1976 they were married and on December 18, 2009 they celebrated 33 years of marriage together.
Peter was a proud member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police from 1975-1979 in Nova Scotia. He returned to Newfoundland following his RCMP posting and worked for the Provincial Government. In 1980 he and Bernice pursued new adventures in Alberta where he created his own private investigation firm. It was there that he was approached and hired by Pinkerton's Private Security and Investigations. Peter and his family relocated to Winnipeg Manitoba where he worked for 18 years as the Vice-president of operations for Western Canada. During those years Peter indulged his love of hockey and coached numerous teams including his most treasured memory of coaching his son. Peter believed strongly in giving back to the community and set this example by donating his security resources for many years to the Manitoba Marathon. After retiring from Pinkerton's he followed his sweetheart in 2001 to Dauphin, Manitoba where she was accomplishing career goals with the Royal Bank of Canada. In that same year Peter and Bernice embarked on a new challenge by purchasing and operating Westmore Domo Convenience Centre.
Peter was a very strong man, yet a kind man who was always ready to smile. He was a devoted husband, and loving father and grandfather. He instilled in his children a moral compass and taught them the importance of respect, loyalty, integrity, honesty and love. He will live on in our hearts forever and will always guide us. We love you daddy.
Funeral service will be held on Saturday, January 2, 2010 at 2:00 p.m. from the Sneath-Strilchuk Funeral Chapel in Dauphin, Manitoba with Pastor Howard Burnie officiating.

MOWBRAY, R. M. (Bob), PhD. - Passed peacefully away in Harbour View Haven, Lunenburg, Nova Scotia on December 26th, 2009. Born in Ayr, Scotland August 7, 1924 this orator, wit, musician, author, sailor, woodworker, university administrator and academic leaves his family and friends with many happy memories and much sadness at his passing. With Janet, his best friend and wife of almost 60 years, Bob travelled the world, making special friends in Scotland, Australia, Newfoundland and Nova Scotia. Together they raised Catriona (Rob) Maloney, Graham (Lynn), Joan and Anne (Ron) Chisholm. Bob's grandchildren Elsbeth, Gwen, Devon, Jimmy, Matthew, Lindsay, Stephan, Thomas and Morgan and great grandchildren Eirinn, Brody, David, Mary-Jane and Sarah were lucky to know him, to hear his stories, to listen to his music or just enjoy an ice-cream and chat with him after the dinner table was cleared. His brother Bill (Betty) and sister Helen never let him forget his strong Scottish roots and having been a wing forward playing for Ayr, Bob became Mahone Bay's most ardent Scottish rugby fan and a great purveyor of haggis on Burns' Night.
During the Second World War, Bob flew as a navigator with the Royal Air Force and was involved with testing experimental radar systems. After the war, he studied at the University of Glasgow where he was awarded a Doctor of Philosophy in Psychology and started his long academic career which spanned appointments at universities in Manchester, Glasgow, Melbourne and finally at Memorial University of Newfoundland. At Memorial he held several positions including Associate Dean of Medicine and Deputy Public Orator. One of his fondest memories as a university orator was singing "We've met again" to Vera Lynn. In St. John's he was an enthusiastic member of the Stokers Rotary group and also served on the Janeway Children's Hospital Board. In addition to his many academic papers and several textbooks, he wrote a novel, "Harness and Hatches Secure", that reflected some of his wartime experiences. Bob was ever grateful for the love and support of Janet. He led a full life and left us all the richer for it. Arrangements are under the care of Mahone Funeral Home, Mahone Bay (902) 624-8241. On line condolences may be made at: www.mahonefuneral.ca. At Bob's request, there will be no visitation or service. Donations in Bob's memory may be made to Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders), the Salvation Army or a charity of your choice.

Of that Newfoundland penny
The light bulb, Tim Hortons,
Harold B. Goodridge and art
A father with a very big heart.
