"He Is Gone
You can shed tears that he is gone, Or you can smile because he lived, You can close your eyes and pray that he will come back, Or you can open your eyes and see all that he has left.  Your heart can be empty because you can't see him Or you can be full of the love that you shared, You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday, Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.  You can remember him and only that he is gone, Or you can cherish his memory and let it live on, You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back, Or you can do what he would want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

STACEY (Connors) (nee Best), Edith Jane - March 25, 1913 - January 1, 2012. While rejoicing in her long, healthy, and active life, we are also deeply saddened at the ending of her inspiring journey. Active in her community wherever she lived - Spencer's Cove, St. John's, North Harbour, Arnold's Cove - she took great pleasure in making a positive contribution, whether through participating enthusiastically in social organizations; performing in community concerts; providing care as a dedicated and competent midwife, health care provider, and undertaker; or knitting for the needy. She was happy in her garden surrounded by flowers, happier still in her community surrounded by friends, and happiest of all in her home surrounded by family - especially children. She was a loyal, dependable, and faithful friend who possessed a fine sense of humour marked by an ability to see the fun in practically every situation, to share joy with others, and to laugh heartily at herself. Daughter of the late Charles and Eliza (Brown) Best, Edith was predeceased by husbands Michael J. Connors and George W. Stacey; sisters Jessie Legge and Phoebe Ralph; brothers Stanley Best and William Best; daughters Thelma Connors, Shirley Snook Inkpen, and Gloria Eddy; and grandson Lorne Snook. Mourning their loss, but grateful for the good fortune of her past and enduring presence in their lives, are daughter Joan Gilbert (Roy); sons: Charles Stacey (Shirley), George Connors (Connie), and John Connors (Cherry Dalley); sisters: Effie Slade and Mabel Masters (James); sister-in-law Elizabeth Best Peach; 16 grandchildren, numerous great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren; other relatives; and many friends.

VENHERM, Wilfried "Wilf" - 72, died suddenly in Vancouver on January 4th, 2012. Born in Rheda, Germany, November 14th, 1939, he was the second of five children. Trained as a radio and television technician, he moved from Germany to St. John's, Newfoundland. There he found his true home, his diamond in the rough, The Rock. While Newfoundland held his heart, the milder climes of Vancouver captured the rest of him 36 years ago. Wilf lived his life to the fullest. Good humour and laughter came as easily to him as friendship. His genuine nature connected him to young and old. Always a man of diverse interests, his passion for sailing kept him close to the water and his love of precision German Engineering allowed him to enjoy the ground with some low-level flying! Autobahn, anyone? He shared his thoughtful opinions and experiences over good food and wine. Travel enhanced his life and exposed him to another love, art. For 31 years he built his business, Framagraphic Frame Shop and Gallery, in Vancouver. Loyal customers appreciated his exacting nature and precise attention to detail. Their experience was enhanced by his eye for beauty and outstanding customer service. He also received fulfillment by generously mentoring many, opening his home and his wallet to allow others to grow and guiding those who needed it. His influence continues. After retirement he sought warmth in Puerta Vallarta, Mexico during the winters. Newfoundland often drew him eastward to enjoy old friends, family, and many parties. Visits to Germany and Europe became more frequent. He relished the time he had to reconnect, rekindle, and rediscover. He is survived by his life partner, Beverley Rose, his two children, Steffi Schwartz of Scottsdale, Arizona, Martin Venherm of Glasgow, Scotland, and his grandchildren Paulina and Antonia Schwartz. His siblings are Hedda Zeitler of Dallas, Texas, Christa Wolf of Burdett, New York, and brothers Peter and Klaus in Germany. Wilf's life was one of celebration and to celebrate.

"Always loved and never forgotten"

WALSH, George Raymond - Sept 24th, 1945 - Jan 17th, 2012. It is with great sadness that the family of the late George Raymond Walsh, age 66, of Fleur de Lys, NL, announce his peaceful passing due to an aneurism at St. Clare's Hospital, St. John's, NL on Tuesday, January 17th, 2012.
George was a tremendous human being and those who knew him were of privileged company! He will be sadly missed, and greatly remembered! George Raymond Walsh was born in Fleur de Lys, NL on September 24th, 1945 to John and Bertha Walsh during a time when rural Newfoundland was rural and communities survived by interdependence among the community and family. Instilled with a hard work ethic, strong will and good morals George set out into the world where he would have significant impact on everyone who came into his company. He lived a very diverse and cultured life; was well traveled physically, emotionally and spiritually. He was truly a kindred spirit.
George had a very diversified and colorful career and he began his working days as a Machinist. He completed his apprenticeship with Advocate Mines in Baie Verte and once completed with papers he had a ticket to see the country. Young and eager he travelled extensively in all the industrial corners of Canada gaining experience and respect among his peers. Among some of his many stops he worked in Ontario, Labrador City, Long Harbour, Stephenville, and Fort McMurray. George worked hard and in the early days played hard; while rambling from one adventure to another he participated as a union representative and caused plentiful wild cat strikes, more for the entertainment than for the grievances won.
George loved people, they were his priority, and he sincerely wanted to make a difference for those important to him. George was a great strategist and planner. After vacationing around the world between work as a Machinist, George did as he always did regarding any decision in life; he followed his heart and returned to lay down roots in Fleur de Lys. He loved Fleur de Lys! His contribution and dedication never unwavering George set out to build a future for the community. A natural leader he played a role in every aspect of the community and region at large. He was a very composed and energetic man with a great vision. Like a real entrepreneur he was engaged in many business ventures, but in the beginning it was the Stogger Tite Lounge and Walsh's Store that kept his interest. In the meantime he was determined Fleur de Lys needed jobs, so with the perseverance he showed in all his efforts a committee was struck and he lead the community to lobby the government for a Crab license. Impossible was not in George's vocabulary! Time after time, year after year George faced the impossible task and most times was successful. With a crab license and processor in hand George constructed the Crab plant which he managed for 18 years for the Quinlan Bros. George met his beloved wife Millie in 1983. Both very passionate about their community they jointly made representation to the Royal Commission on Sealing and the importance it had to Newfoundland and our rural way of life. George and Millie loved each other to no end and faced all of their future ups and downs together; united. Sealing would be an important part of George for the rest of his life. He had a great vision of the potential the industry could have for Newfoundland and was real pioneer for the development of the industry. In 1996 he founded Caboto Seafoods and met a great partner and true friend where they developed a special refining technology for seal oil. In 2005 George began Sea Water Products and constructed a new plant in Fleur de Lys where he maintained his determination to develop the full utilization of seals. George was a strong minded individual, often thinking outside the box and loved to prove his point, often going against the grain of the way most people were thinking. He loved a good argument but never held grudges. George always lived for today and tomorrow was another day.
George and Millie committed as much time to their volunteer life as they did in their professional lives. Volunteering was their investment into the future of the community and most things they did together. Since his return to Fleur de Lys in the early 80's George has never been vacant of a lead responsibility of some organization or another. Over the years he has served on the Baie Verte Economic Development Assoc., Dorset Trail Tourism Assoc., Dorset Museum Committee, Petit Nord Development Committee, Emerald Zone, Town Council, and the Provincial Progressive Conservative District Executive.
George loved politics! Partly because of the idealisms he carried and partly for the entertainment. Elections were like the playoffs to a major sports buff. George loved to play the campaign trail, watch the candidates and evaluate the positions at the local coffee shop. He enjoyed the camaraderie and friendships that he experienced with everyone he met no matter what the color, although he really preferred blue; most of the time.
Highly energized and engaged George always put his family first and everything else was second priority. He loved his children and wife dearly and at all times expressed his love for them. He was a proud father always recollected the time he spent with Sandy and Sam fondly. Personally he was faced with challenges only his family can know, but he faced them the way he faced the rest of his life - head on!
George was a well composed individual and always expressed the same demeanor. He had a big heart and loved to enjoy good company and appreciated good friends. He saw the importance in enjoying life and dearly loved music, food and a good party. Material possessions were never important to him and he found riches in simple things; trouting and, berry picking with Millie, mother-in-law Phene and her friends. Along with Millie he entertained company from every corner of the world. In addition he participated in community talent shows; things that gave him and Millie joy.
George Walsh was a very courageous man and he was happy for each day that he spent with us in the world as we know it. We were lucky to have him. George had a humble confidence and never looked for acknowledgement for any of the tremendous contributions he has made in his lifetime. He was never known to wear a watch and time was of no essence to him, it didn't matter. He often said we are only one breath away, and really if you live your life by that, no one should have any regrets. George was a deeply spiritual person and faced death as he faced life - head on. The last few days of George's life were challenging to those close to him, but he gave us strength in the steadiness and confidence he expressed to us all. He did what he has done regarding anything in his life; he followed his heart and returned home where Sam is waiting to greet him!
George Walsh was a great man, a great friend, a great father but most of all a great human being!
