DRISCOLL, Gordon Stanley - It is with great sadness, we announce the passing of our beloved father. Dad passed peacefully away on Dec. 18, 2013 at the age of 84 in the Palliative Care Unit of the Miller Centre in the presence of his loving family. He is predeceased by his wife Helen (2007), his parents Chesley & Irene, his mother and father in-law Minnie & Roy Cole, brothers in-laws Ed Simpson, Joe Didham and Charles Hood. Leaving to mourn are his sons Jeffrey (Lorna Proudfoot) and Craig (Debbie) his grandchildren, Deidre, Shannon and Kieran, sisters, Eleanor Hood and Dorothy Didham, sister in-law Shirley Simpson and nieces Debbie Courtney (Scott), Jennifer Randell (Andy Schilling), Kim Simpson (Doug Turkheim) nephew Glenn Didham (Peggy). He also leaves a large circle of wonderful friends. Dad worked for over 40 years with CN traveling all over the Island making sure the maintenance of the train tracks were up to standard so the trains could keep rolling. His last and saddest duty with CN, was to take up the tracks in 1990. One of Dad's great passions was his membership in the Masonic brotherhood. He was a Past Master of the Lodge Tasker, where he was a member for 60 years. Gordon was also a member of District Grand Lodge, a founding member of Lodge Westmorland and an honorary member of Lodges Anik 1707, Carbonear 1043, Conception 1679, Harbour Grace, Hearts Content, Killwinning 1754, Mackay 1129, McLeod and St. Andrew 1139. He was proud of the many accomplishments during his time volunteering. Some of these included the assistance with the Church of England orphanage, the development of the Masonic Park, the building of the new Free Masons Hall and helping establish the golfing tournament for Kids Eat Smart and School Lunch Program that has generated over $150,000 for these causes since its inception. Dad received wonderful and caring treatment from Elizabeth and Dr. Mike Kennedy of East End Health Centre to whom we shall always be grateful. The care from the Palliative Unit was exemplary. We would also like to thank the pharmacists and staff at Lawtons Drug store on Campbell Ave. for all the professional and caring service they consistently gave Dad. Dad thought this was THE only drug store in town. Dad will be resting at Barrett's Funeral Home at 328 Hamilton Ave. Visitation will be on Friday Dec 20 and on Saturday Dec 21 from 2-4 pm and 7-9 pm. Funeral will take place at Wesley United Church on Patrick St. Monday Dec 23 at 11:00 am. with interment to follow at Mount Pleasant Cemetery off Hamilton Avenue at Cornwall Heights.

STIRLING, Geoffrey William - (March 22, 1921 - December 21, 2013) -A sad day for broadcasting in this province and this country. Media pioneer Geoff Stirling has passed away. The founder and Chairman of the board of Newfoundland Broadcasting passed away peacefully overnight. He was 92. A star athlete, Geoff stirling's career in Journalism began the 1940's. He founded the Sunday Herald in 1946, spawning what would become a media empire in this province, which also included NTV and OZ FM. He is a legend in the industry, and was a key political player as the province wrestled with confederation. He will be remembered as one of the country's most innovative media and business figures.
Geoff is predeceased by his daughter Kimberly Stirling and his brother Bruce Stirling. He leaves to mourn with so many loving, happy memories, his wife of 56 years, Joyce Cutler Stirling, Children: Scott Stirling (Judy), Anne Stirling, Greg Stirling, Shawn Stirling Schuck (Kevin), Jean Fox Stirling; Grandchildren: Jesse Stirling, Geoffrey Stirling Jr., Lydia McLaughlin (Doug), Kaitlin Schuck, Hannah Schuck, Weston Schuck, Abbey Joy Stirling, Aiden Stirling, Luke Stirling; Great grandchildren: Stirling & Maverick McLaughlin; Brother: Rex Stirling Sister: Enid Jones; Brother in Law: Craig Cutler (Victoria). Special thanks to a loyal, devoted and deeply appreciated friend LANEY SMITH.
Mr. Stirling wanted to specifically express his appreciation and gratitude to the loyal employees of Stirling Communications; each and everyone had a place in his heart. Geoff Stirling will be best known for his pioneering work in radio and for bringing commercial television to Newfoundland and Labrador. He does however cast a much longer shadow than that. In the 1940's in Newfoundland he was a track and field star and introduced a new high jump technique known as "the western roll" to the sport. When the great debate over Responsible Government and the future of Newfoundland began Mr,. Stirling campaigned with Ches Crosbie and Don Jamieson in a movement that sought an economic union with the United States. When Newfoundland decided to go in the direction of Confederation with Canada Geoff Stirling turned to the communications business. He partnered with Don Jamieson to open CJON radio in 1950 in premises on Prince of Wales Street in St John's. In 1955 Newfoundland Broadcasting opened CJON Television which has become the current NTV Network. As part of that broadcasting career Geoff Stirling was involved in the groundbreaking National Film Board feature Waiting for Fidel in which a journey to Cuba with his friend Joseph R. Smallwood in search of an interview with Cuban Premier Fidel Castro was documented. Mr. Smallwood and Mr. Stirling often appeared on television to discuss the issues facing the province. It was in television where Geoff Stirling pushed the boundaries of broadcasting. He began innovative and experimental work in 24 hour television, an idea that has become industry standard today. He also opened the doors of his television network to political debate in a way never seen before in the province. He himself often spoke out on late night television on matters of public concern. Always in the vanguard of technological advance Geoff Stirling also brought to Newfoundland the first FM radio station when he opened CHOZ known today as OZ FM Radio.
In his life Geoff Stirling had many careers. He was an athlete and a publisher, a political activist and a broadcaster, all of which were duly recognized by his induction in the Canadian Halls of Fame for broadcasting, sports and business as well as the Royal St. John's Regatta Hall of Fame. When he was awarded the Order of Newfoundland and Labrador John Crosbie, a one time political foe said of him "Geoff Stirling left deep footprints in the Newfoundland landscape." Resting at Carnell's Funeral Home, 329 Freshwater Road, visitation will take place on Thursday January 2, 2014 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. and Friday January 3, 2014 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. Funeral Service will take place from St. Thomas' Anglican Church, 8 Military Road on Saturday January 4, 2014, at 2:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Geoff's memory to the Janeway Children's Hospital.

WATERMAN, Kevin Gerald - July 22, 1952 - December 29, 2013 - The world has lost a kind and gentle human being, Kevin Waterman of Gander, who had been dealing with several health issues for three years. Kevin is predeceased by his parents Gertie and Fred; sister, Margaret Rose; brother, Elmo; nephew, Kristofer Waterman; brothers-in-law, Ronnie Cull, Robert McClean, and Joseph Finch; sisters-in-law Hazel Waterman and Geraldine Waterman. Left to honor his memory are his wife and best friend of 38 years, Paula; his much loved and cherished daughter, Jillian; parents-in-law Walter and Helena Cull; brothers, Angus, Wayne (Margrit), and Dennis (Betty); sisters, Marion Evans (Angus), Maxine McClean, Jean Finch, and Deanna Smith (Bill); brothers-in-law Barry Cull (Barbara) and Dwayne Cull (Barbara); special sister-in-law Deneen Cull (Corrie Davis, Claire); and many close and caring friends from Gander, and also from across the province and the rest of Canada, who have provided support on so many levels during this difficult journey. Kevin also leaves behind a large extended circle of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, former colleagues, fellow Rotarians, and his devoted canine companion, Molly. Anyone who knew Kevin knew that he embraced all aspects of life fully, until ill health curtailed this. However, even this he accepted with his usual equanimity and sense of humor. His greatest passion was his love for family, followed by: sports, especially hockey, which he played twice weekly until 2 years ago, and his beloved Maple Leafs; travel (having visited 16 countries); the outdoors; and his hobby of photography. Kevin's career in municipal recreation spanned 37 years, beginning in Botwood before being employed for 30 years by the town of Gander. Wherever he travelled, he was a proud ambassador for his adopted community of Gander. He was a mentor to the many students employed to run Gander's summer recreation programs, and will be remembered by them for his positive outlook, creativity, and integrity. He also volunteered extensively on various committees at both the provincial and national levels, receiving many awards and accolades. He has been recognized by his peers as a "truly passionate, dedicated and sincere recreation leader". Kevin has been cremated, as was his wish. A funeral service to celebrate a life well-lived was held at Fraser Road United Church on January 2, 2014. Internment will be at a later date. Donations in Kevin's memory will be gratefully accepted for Gander Special Olympics and Gander S.P.C.A., or a charity of ones' choice. Arrangements entrusted to Stacey's funeral home.
