BLACKMORE, Daniel
It is with deep sorrow and profound sadness that we announce the sudden but peaceful passing of Daniel Blackmore II. Surrounded by his beloved wife and children and other family members, Daniel passed away at the Health Sciences Centre on December 10, 2017. The eldest of seven children, Danny was born and raised in Windsor, NL. Growing up, he was the hockey-playing, guitar-strumming, Beatles-loving, and studious school boy who served as an altar boy with St. Joseph's Catholic parish. For twelve years, Dan proudly made a contribution to his community as a town councillor with the Town of Grand Falls-Windsor, serving on committees at all levels of municipal governance. He was an intellectual with a curiosity for lifelong learning and a love of reading. He was well-suited for his chosen profession as an educator, where he was highly respected and revered by colleagues and students alike over his 30-year teaching career. Dan had a natural ability to lift others up through his charm, humour, sharp wit, camaraderie, and clever storytelling. Being a conversationalist, he enjoyed discussing and analyzing both historical and current events, and had a true sensibility to those in his company.
Dan will perhaps be best remembered for his regimen of daily crossword puzzles, weekday walks, and as one who listened well and encouraged others to see the good in themselves. Dan put everything he had into the life that he built for himself and the relationships he shared with those around him; there truly is no greater gift than the love he gave so freely and sincerely to his family and friends.
Predeceased by his father (Daniel I), mother (Lulu) and brother Robert, Dan leaves to mourn his loving wife and soulmate of 40 years, Judi; cherished children Stephanie (Trevor Poole), Daniel III, and Sydney (Geoff Oliver); sister, Molly (Neal) Stapleton; brothers, Peter (Paulette), Paul (Lisa), Tony (Lynn), David, and Darren; father-in-law, Sidney Butler; in-laws, Joan and Walter Hodder, Roma and Freeman White, Glen and Christine Butler, Scott and Tena Butler, Beverly and Peter Rockwood; as well as a large circle of extended family and friends. A celebration of Dan's life was observed at a funeral service held at St. Joseph's Parish, Grand Falls-Windsor, at 2:00pm on Thursday, December 14, 2017. The service was entrusted to Hoskins Funeral Home in Grand Falls-Windsor. Donations in Dan's memory can be made to the St. Joseph's Parish Hall or the Community Soup Kitchen.
Dan will be sadly missed by all who were privileged to have known and loved him.
Laughter!
Laugh! That's the only thing
That can come close to matching
The tumultuous cascade of water
Flowing in the freest of spirit.

BROWN, Lorna McLean (nee Power)
Born: July 12th, 1957
Passed on: December 6th, 2017

Lorna was born on July 12, 1957 in St. John's Newfoundland, and passed away in Moffat, Ontario on December 6, 2017, in brave defiance to cancer. Beautiful and radiant. Loving, strong, selfless, humble, eloquent, brilliant, compassionate, giving, resourceful and kind. Fun loving with an infectious smile and laughter to light up a room, a late night friend, a best friend. A woman with a servant heart who passionately loved her soul mate, children, grandchildren and beloved Poodles. Too many poodles is good. Remembering her roots, she passed on the wisdom and values of her parents and grandparents. A loving daughter, mother and wife, wise beyond her years. She was sensitive and loved until it hurt, incredibly intuitive and was always a caretaker. Driven and hard working with a relentless spirit. A gifted self-taught designer. Enthusiastic about life, and both a warrior and a worrier. A fighter. Thrifty but generous, stubborn, candid and blunt, but also empathetic and sweet. She hated the cold and snow, but basked in happiness drawn from the sun, beaches and beers arrived at from a cruise ship. She let her hair down at concerts, boy could she dance. Traveling and seeing the world from her motor home with her best friend and cherished Poodles at her side was a life's joy. Laughing, smiling, hugging and being together with those most dear. She was great at collecting loyalty points, and even better at spending them. Stopping at a casino to make a 'withdrawal' was a thrill, begrudging visits that ended instead as a 'deposit'. She was a genius in the kitchen, enjoyed sharing great food, and found peace in her gardens and nature.
She was predeceased by her Dad, Michael Power, and her Mum, Martha Power (nee Thomson). She is survived by her great love, Donald, her boys Adam and Robin, daughter-in-law Jodee, grandkids Kailah, Keira and Lincoln, life-long friend Désirée and many other relatives and friends. She will be remembered, her presence forever in our hearts and souls. Lorna always said to give her flowers in life, so in lieu please send donations to the Canadian Cancer Society. No funeral services are planned at this time. Spend time with your children, take care of and cherish those that matter most to you, have fun because life is too short and take walks on the beach with your loved ones. That is what Lorna would wish for you. Messages of condolence may be left online at www.earlyfuneralhome.com

Ignatius Courtney
would like to let you know that his work here is done. He received a call, a sort of an offer you can't refuse, for an appointment from which he will not be returning. This assignment comes with a huge sign-on bonus, a reunion with family and friends he has not seen in a long time. Job security is exactly 110 percent. His new mission takes him to a wonderful place where he will be socializing, playing darts, listening to CCR, eating jig's dinner, drinking Screech and reading to his heart's content. Music, laughter and love are guaranteed. Food is delicious and you never gain an ounce. He left detailed instructions for his wife Audrey, children; Ashley (Chris), Jasmin (Shaun), Jessica (Ross), Joshua (Ashley) and grandchildren; Melissa, Alexander, Mason, Lacy, Avery, Colton, Charli, Parker, and Tristen and great-granddaughter, Kamely, to celebrate his mission here, which has now been completed. Low adherence to this instruction will not be tolerated."
Ig was born on December 4, 1946 to Stephen and Gertrude Courtney in the town of Southern Harbour, Newfoundland. His love for life, his love for his home province of Newfoundland and his love for his Family is what kept Ig going during the hardest battle of his life.

GOVATSOS, Dr. Sotira
Born: April 3rd, 1934
Passed on: December 11th, 2017

Passed peacefully last evening at Kenny's Pond Retirement Community in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador. Leaving to mourn are her sister Evangelia Govatsos, nephews Takis Papadakis and Panagiotis Govatsos, and their families, the Bartellas family, her friends in the Greek Community of Newfoundland and Labrador, her medical colleagues, and her neighbours. Sotiria completed her medical degree at the University of Athens, Greece (1958). She immigrated to the USA in 1960 completing a medical internship at Memorial Hospital, Albany, New York. This was followed by an Obstetrics and Gynecology residency in Atlanta, Georgia. She started training in Pathology at the Philadelphia General Hospital (1965), while also completing additional postgraduate medical training at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. She then immigrated to Canada and completed General Pathology training at the Halifax Institute of Pathology/Victoria General Hospital (1968) and was an Associate Pathologist at the Yarmouth General Hospital (Nova Scotia). In 1969 she moved to Newfoundland and became an Associate Pathologist at the Grace General Hospital, and became Director of the Pathology Laboratory (1975), followed by Director of Laboratory Services overseeing all laboratory medicine. She was a Fellow of the American College of Pathologists, Fellow of the American Association of Clinical Pathologists, and Board Certified in Canada and USA in General Pathology. She was an Associate Clinical Professor in the Faculty of Medicine, Memorial University of Newfoundland. 'Dr. G', as she was affectionately referred to by many in St. John's, was a clever woman, a devout medical specialist, an amazing cook, a dog lover, a wonderful gardener, a loving person and a lively spirit. A fierce Spartan, Sotiria was extremely passionate about Greek culture, music, food, and especially dancing! She was a most generous and loyal friend. Before Google there was Govatsos; she was a fountain of knowledge! S?t???a (Sotiria) means "salvation," which is something or someone that protects you from harm. She certainly helped many in times of need. We wish to thank all of the staff at Kenny's Pond Retirement Community for the wonderful care they provided for Sotiria in her last few years. As per Sotiria's request, cremation will take place with no burial or funeral services. To send a message of condolence or to sign the memorial guestbook, please visit www.carnells.com

HANEBURY, Mabel Cavell (nee Hann)
Born: September 3rd, 1919
Passed on: December 13th, 2017
September 3, 1919
Saint John's, Newfoundland -
December 13, 2017
Calgary, Alberta
Mabel Cavell Hanebury (nee Hann)
of Calgary, Alberta, passed away on December 13, 2017 at the grand age of 98, but her joyful outlook and her loving spirit will live on in her family and friends. Mabel was born in Saint John's, Newfoundland, in 1919, or as her children prefer to call it "the Dark Ages". After graduating from Bishop Spencer College, she began her working life as a stenographer, earning $4.50 a week. Despite the meager wages, she managed to pay off the years of her schooling that her parents had been unable to afford at the time. When unions came to St. John's, her wages went up, and she was able to buy a 1936 Willy's car, which she gassed up fifty cents at a time. She and her girlfriends went for many trips "around the bay" in the car, and they swam often in the Atlantic Ocean even as an occasional iceberg drifted past.
Hungry for a taste of the big city life on the Mainland, she and two girlfriends moved to Toronto in 1942, followed by stints in Halifax and Montreal, before she settled in London, Ontario, in 1951 with her husband Ralph Hanebury (1916-1993). She was a devoted wife and mother who resisted the stay-at-home norm working full time in various secretarial capacities, most notably as secretary to the vice-president of Marconi Company before her marriage, and in medical records at St. Joseph's Hospital after her marriage. Post-retirement, she and Ralph enjoyed many winters in Florida. After moving to Calgary in 1982, they shifted their overwintering grounds to Scottsdale, Arizona, where they made many friends. While she took her working life seriously, family was the source of her greatest joy. When computers came along, she signed up for an introductory course at the University of Calgary and began to compile a family genealogy. In 2000 she organized a family reunion in St. John's that saw Haneburys come from all over North America. At 98, she was still staying connected with some of those people through Facebook.
She is survived by her three children: Judith (Peter), Peter (Jean), and Derek (Jocelan); her grandchildren, Derek, Neal, Christopher, Bradley, Liam, Sean, and Evani; and her great-grandchildren, Natalie, Jasmine and Benjamin and her former son-in-law Doug and his wife Tina. The family would like to thank the staff at the Fountains of Mission, including Inderjit, Naseem and Elsie, and as well Hannah, audiologist extraordinaire, all of whom helped her maintain her independence. Her request was for no service, but a private celebration of her life will take place with family at a later date. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com   In living memory of Mabel Hanebury, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Chapel of the Bells, 2720 CENTRE STREET NORTH, Telephone: 403-276-2296.

HONG, Melvin Gordon
Born: March 20th, 1941
Passed on: December 30th, 2017

Born on March 20, 1941 and passed peacefully in the loving embrace of his children on December 30, 2017. Aged 76 years. Guide, Leader, Trainer, Teacher, Principal, Mentor, Friend and Father...Mel Hong is all of these. He taught so many people valuable lessons to take through life, but above all, he taught his children to love, and love with all our hearts. Predeceased by his loving wife of 40 years, Sheila Hong, and his wonderful mother and father, Fronie and Charles Hong. Left to remember his pure goodness of heart are his 4 children: Blair Hong (Andrea Power), Janet Hong (James Camsell), Dahna Hong (Brad Meaney), Valerie Hong (Jason LeClair). Also left are the treasures of his life, his 3 grandchildren: Leigha, Jesse and Shayla. Mourning his loss are his siblings: Bill Matthews (Carol), Orv Matthews (Sandra), Don Hong (Anna), Cliff Hong (Roslyn), Ed Hong (Anne) and sister Rose Nieves (Felix), and "brother from another mother" Tom Furlong, as well as a large extended family. Mel leaves behind so many people his life touched over his years (and to his many, many friends, you have touched his life too) as a principal, teacher, councillor and friend. Mel believed in the goodness of everyone he met, and encouraged us to see these same qualities in everyone we crossed paths with. He challenged authority, despite being known as the authoritarian himself for many years. Mel had a mischievous side that not everyone knew about, and he loved to laugh at the baddest of jokes. One of the great joys of his life was seeing the students under his guidance blossom into strong and independent thinkers, who could be proud of their achievements, despite at times their shaky starts in life. Mel lived a rich and full life and always gave the utmost of himself to anyone he met, yet never lost his humble nature. Cremation has taken place. The family will receive visitors at Caul's Funeral Home, 84 Lemarchant Road on Wednesday, January 3, 2018 from 5 p.m. - 9 p.m. and Thursday, January 4, 2018 from 2 p.m. - 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.- 9 p.m. Funeral Mass 9:30 a.m. on Friday, January 5, 2018 from Corpus Christi Church with inurnment to follow at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery.

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Flora Joy, at age 91. She died peacefully, surrounded by family, at True Davidson Acres in Toronto, after a long illness during which her family, friends and caregivers were impressed again and again by her resilience and life force. The family extends heartfelt thanks to the kind staff of True Davidson Acres.
She is predeceased by her husband Clifton Joy and her brother James (Eileen); survived by her children John (Robin), Robert (Henry), David, and Debora (Misha); her sisters Frances (Starr) and Margaret (Brown); her brothers Henry (Frances) and Roy (Eileen); her sister-in-law Eileen Pike; her grandchildren Ruby, Sara, Reba, Emma and Nikolas; and many loving and beloved nephews and nieces, on both the Joy and Pike sides of the family.

Over the ensuing years, Clifton and Flora's home often sheltered not only their children, but also Flora's siblings, and Clifton's nephews and nieces. Flora worked tirelessly alongside Clifton for the establishment of Newfoundland and Labrador's first and only pediatric hospital, the Janeway Children's Health and Rehabilitation Centre. She was a hostess extraordinaire, whether throwing legendary garden parties, cocktail parties, New Year's Eve gatherings, bridge parties for her beloved bridge friends, or elegant Sunday dinners, where visiting dignitaries, interns, residents, relatives and family friends were always welcome.
Interment will take place at St. John's Norway Cemetery, 256 Kingston Road, Toronto, on Friday, December 22 at 1pm.

I'd like the memory of me to be a happy one,

I'd like to leave an echo,
Whispering softly down the ways,
Of happy times,
And laughing times,
Of bright and sunny days,

To dry before the sun,
Of happy memories that I leave,
Now my life is done.

MILLEY, Ian
Age 61, of Halifax, born in St. John's Nfld, passed away peacefully, after a brief illness, at VG Hospital in Halifax with his wife and family at his side. No Newfie ever leaves the Rock entirely, but for the past 30 years, Ian has thoroughly enjoyed calling Halifax home with his loving wife Darlene Kinghorn. Ian's career, over the years, included sales and marketing for several food and beverage companies and enjoying many of his wide-ranging interests, too, mostly cars. He took many a road trip in very interesting vehicles, often with a game of golf tossed in there somewhere. Ian often enjoyed Christmas holidays and numerous spring vacations in Siesta Key Sarasota with Darlene, and his in-laws. This Christmas won't be the same without Ian riding his bike along the beach with his crazy Santa hat. He had a huge heart, a ready smile, an eagerness to engage with anybody and a general joy and enthusiasm for life that his family and friends will forever miss.
He is survived by his wife Darlene Kinghorn and their new dog Nikki, brothers Peter (Chris Hornberger), Doug (Sharon), brother-in-law Douglas Coffin, in-laws Roy and Carol Kinghorn, brother-in-law Paul (Cathy) Kinghorn, nephew Gordon Milley and nieces Emma and Amanda Kinghorn. Ian was predeceased by his parents Fred and Margaret (MacNab) Milley and sister Janet. Although Ian didn't make it to the next stage of his illness journey, he would like to help others. His wish was that everyone would consider becoming an organ donor. Memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Liver Foundation of Nova Scotia. The family would like to thank all the wonderful nurses and doctors at the QE2 and VG hospitals. Cremation is under the care of J.A. Snow Funeral Home with a family burial service to be held at a later date. Please join us for a celebration of Ian's life at Armdale Yacht Club (off Purcell's Cove Road, Hfx). On Thursday.

MOLLOY, Margaret
Passed on: December 24th, 2017

In the early morning of December 24th, 2017 Margaret Molloy nee Murphy, passed peacefully away in the company of her loving family. Margaret was married to Kevin Molloy and the proud mother of Alexander and Patrick Molloy. Margaret was also mother to Jerry and William Wayne who were placed in adoption services shortly after they were born. She was mother to Robert, who grew up with her sister Johanna Gertrude Flynn. Margaret was a friend and a very special person to all who knew her. She has become one of the angels in heaven, and now gets to visit with her father, her husband Kevin, and her brother and sisters. Margaret had seven siblings. Her oldest sister, Mary, died as an infant. Margaret and her sisters Johanna, Gertrude, and Alice, were mostly raised by her oldest sister Kathleen and her brother Bill. Margaret's second brother, John, died as an infant. Louise Poole was raised by Lou's mother Mary Poole. Margaret was the last surviving member of her immediate family.
Margaret is survived by her children Alexander, Patrick, Robert and possibly William Wayne (his status is unknown). She is also survived by her wonderful grandchildren Jason, Scott, Chrystal, Kyle, Kim, Kathryn, Max, Anne and Kathleen. Her story is a fascinating one. She was born November 21, 1931 in Brigus. Margaret was born with a condition called Talipes, also known as club foot. She was told she would never live a normal life, she would need help and support and would likely live in an institution most of her life. They were wrong about that. She faced the physical condition and any negative attitudes that came her way as a young girl and as a woman. She had determination, a friendly smile and a positive attitude that would make all challenges melt away. A club foot was not her only challenge in life. Her mother died on May 4th, 1934. She was just 2 ½ years old. While her father worked on the roads and did his best, she and her siblings practically raised themselves. It was a time when there was no money and their father could not travel far from home to provide for the family. They worked the land, raised chickens and goats, cut the wood, took care of the horse, made bread, picked berries, helped with the still, tended the crops, cut the hay, cooked the meals and slept huddled together in the loft of a small two room house on Cemetery Road just outside Brigus. It was a hard life of constant work and a little play, but they were the best of times. She wanted to go to school but after a few years, the little "cripple girl" was normally left behind and only managed to complete school to grade 4. She had several operations to help improve the use or reduce the handicap of her club foot. As soon as she could, she joined her sisters, searching for independence, finding work in private homes and in the Sanatorium in St. John's. Robert's time with Marg started on January 20th, 1955. Born at the Grace Hospital in St John's, he spent the first few months with her in a "girl's home". Marg's brother Bill bought her a house out of money he made in the woods. The house was just down the lane from her father's house near Brigus. Robbie and Marg lived there for a few years. Margaret was determined to support herself but as a single mother with no work it was almost impossible to survive without a lot of family help. She had her sister Gertie take care of Robbie for brief periods of time and that eventually turned in to extended periods of time. PJ and Gertrude Flynn adopted Robbie in 1960 and they moved to Labrador City in 1961. Margaret was not far behind. By 1962 she was working at Jubber's in Labrador City as a short order cook. She would feed Robbie in the little diner until PJ got mad at her because Robbie wouldn't eat his supper. She went on to work at the IOCC Cafeteria (Crawley McCracklin) and continued to be a permanent fixture in Robert's life.
In 1971, Margaret married Kevin Molloy and soon after they moved to Trepassey. Kevin worked on the boats and Marg once again asserted her independence by going to work, without Kevin's permission, in the fish plant. In Trepassey they built a beautiful life together, raising Paddy and Sandy and a lot of goats. In 1993 Jerry (Marg's first born) and Robert found each other. She told Kevin and Paddy and Sandy about Jerry and Robert. It all turned out great, since Kevin had not told Marg about his daughter Kim in Goose Bay! They had a great laugh and that day we all gained at least one more family member. Marg and Kevin spent most of their free time and their retirement time back in their 'cabin' on a little piece of her father's land, next to her brother Bill, in Brigus. They had come full circle right back to where they started. It the past few years, Paddy, Sandy and Elizabeth have been simply amazing, providing incredibly loving home care for Margaret every day as she slowly faded away. Even as her ability to communicate slipped away, Margaret remained the smiling, loving, beautiful, gentle, special lady we all loved. She will be remembered for her kindness and for her gentle determination to overcome all obstacles while making everyone around her feel comfortable and loved. Thank you Marg for the tough decisions you made, for the guidance you provided, for becoming a great role model as you handled adversity and challenges with love and compassion. You were an angel in life and you are an angel now. Resting at Fahey's Funeral Home in Trepassey on Tuesday, December 26, 2017 from 10 am - 9 pm. Mass of Christian Burial on Wednesday, December 27, 2017 at 11 am from Holy Redeemer Church in Trepassey.

TILLEY, William Gordon
Born: November 30th, 1914
Passed on: December 15th, 2017

It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to our father William Gordon Tilley, a humble, kind and generous man who by any standard was blessed with a long and rewarding life. Predeceased by his loving and devoted wife of 65 years Margaret (Reid); parents, John and Clara Tilley; sisters Violet Streeter (Alf), Olive Reid (Peter), Muriel Bersick (Robert); Leaving to mourn three sons, Gary (Glida Dalton), Wayne (Marilyn Shortall), Glen (Annette Clarke); Grandchildren, Russell (Meghan), Brendan, Kristen (Darrell Edwards) Michael (Jill Cumby); Grandchildren, Zoe, Elise, Jack; A large number of nieces and nephews including Sonia May (Arthur deceased), Renata Keats (Jim), Wendell Streeter (Shirley) Diane Paolucci (Tony); Alan Reid (Rita), David Bersick; daughter in law Charlotte Tilley (Jim Wellman); Sister in law Emma Finley (Warner deceased).
As Dad remarked during his 100th Birthday speech "When you live to be a hundred - there is a lot to cover." He was born on Plymouth Road in the east end of St. John's, the same year World War 1 broke out in Europe. His mother was an accomplished seamstress, the daughter of Sidney Willar, the renowned sail maker. His father was a machinist at Harvey's Butterine Factory. Dad was the only boy in the family but had three sisters. When the family moved to the foot of Spencer Street in 1918, he was only four, how could he have imagined he would live on that street for the next 90 years? He started kindergarten at the old Model School on Parade Street before moving to Holloway then to Bishop Feild College where he graduated in the class of 1931. Dad remained a proud Feildian throughout his life. After graduation he was the first male and the first non-Catholic to attend the commercial/business program offered by the Presentation Sisters. Upon completion he applied for and was accepted by the Newfoundland Rangers. The day before he was to leave by train for training in central Newfoundland he received a call and an offer from the Newfoundland Railway. He chose the railway. So began a remarkable 44-year career. He started out as a clerk stenographer and soon became the Assistant Marine Superintendent. When the province joined Confederation in 1949 he was promoted through many management positions with Canadian National Railway and CN Marine, ultimately becoming CN's senior financial advisor before retiring in 1977.
One of many career highlights: he was instrumental in forming and serving as long time president of the Railway Employees Welfare Association, an association committed to the wellbeing of Railway Employees. But it was his involvement with his beloved Church Lads Brigade that brought him his greatest joy and, to some degree, his public recognition. He joined the CLB in 1925, as an 11 year old, first as a member of F Company, and then transferred to C Company at Bishop Feild and eventually to the newly formed Naval Company in 1933. In 1939, at the age of 25, he applied for and was given the position of Drum Major with the CLB Battalion Band (later Regimental Band), a role he would serve with distinction and a certain pardonable pride for an astounding 63 years. Generations would recall the tall athletic figure in the scarlet red tunic and great Black Watch hat, or busby, stoically swinging the "pace stick" as he led practically every major parade and participated in every major civic event and ceremony in this province. Still fit and hale at 88 years of age he relinquished his Drum Major's position in 2002 - "before I become an old man" he would joke - and was given the rank of Major in the brigade.
In 1977 he single handedly began work to build the CLB archive in the old armory on Harvey Road. It became his passion, a labour of love in which he dedicated himself to recording and chronicling the rich and storied history of the organization in Newfoundland. By December 1992 the archive was the centerpiece of the CLB's 100th anniversary celebrations. Artifacts, records, photos and memorabilia had been collected and assembled from all over the province representing every community where the brigade was established. Tragically, later that month, and within days of the anniversary, Dad had to witness the inferno which destroyed the armory and all its contents in that great Harvey Road fire. With his heart still sore, he arose the next morning determined to rebuild the archive/museum that now bears his name. It became his second home, "his den" as our mother lovingly called it, where he worked three days a week well into his 102nd year.
Dad received many awards and accolades for his contributions to the community at large including, the Key to the City of St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador Senior of Distinction, St. John's Senior Citizen of The Year, and the two he was most proud of: his 90 year gold medal, long service award, from the CLB (he was the longest serving member in the world), and his Honorary Doctorate of Canon Law (Honoris Causa) bestowed upon him by Queens College in 2016.
Dad was a quiet inspiration to his family, friends and colleagues. He brought the same dedication to his family as he did to public service. A devoted husband and father, he always put the needs of others first. We were blessed to have grown up in a home where the ideals of love and respect were cherished. And he was blessed, blessed to have met and chosen our mother to be his wife and best friend. He lived a remarkable life. We will miss him dearly. The community may never see his like again. We'd like to acknowledge the caring and professional staff at The Glenbrook Lodge and his personal physician Dr. Mary Watson. To his CLB comrades, past and present, we salute you all for enriching our father's life. Fight The Good Fight.
Visitation at Carnell's, Monday, December 18 and Tuesday December 19th; 2-4 and 7-9. Funeral service at the Anglican Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, Wednesday, December 20th at 2.pm. Interment to follow at the Anglican Cemetery Forest Road. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the CLB or a charity of one's choice.
