CONDON, Dr. Cyril - (May 3rd, 1928 - January 21st, 2016) - Cyril Condon passed peacefully away on Thursday, January 21 2016. All men die. Some never live... Cyril avoided such a fate. He was a presence in life so large that his absence is a void that can never be filled. Now we are tasked with remembering to move past his recent illness and remember who he was... son, brother, husband, father, Gampy, uncle, story teller in English and Gaelic, reciter of poetry, voracious reader, cryptic crossword aficionado, sailor, pilot, HAM radio operator, cruise ship doctor, amateur chef, golfer, sheep farmer, hunter, fisherman, pontificator, physician, life long learner and great friend. Born in Cahir, Co. Tipperary Ireland in 1928, the youngest of seven, Cyril grew up over the family pub. He went on to complete his medical degree at the University College Cork and shortly thereafter made the trip across the pond to Newfoundland. In 1956 Cyril married his soul mate and true love Virginia Penney. They made their way to Buchans, then onto Winnipeg for specialty training before returning to Newfoundland and settling in Corner Brook as the first qualified anesthesiologist on the island. Cyril retired from the practice of anesthesia in 1993. Never one to sit still, he spent his first six months of retirement educating himself so he could spend the next six months as a physician for Norwegian Cruise Line. Cyril always made quite the entrance, ready with quick wit and a "Cyrilism". Fortunately he made his exit peacefully but rather quicker than expected, surrounded by family. He was grateful, pragmatic and organized to the end, giving instruction on where and when to celebrate, music to be played, and who should sing and speak. From the Humber to the Codroy, the Gander, Exploits and the Eagle, the salmon shall breathe easier, the partridge fly freely and the caribou roam more peacefully in his absence as an Irish hunter and fisher in his beloved Newfound land. Predeceased by his beloved Virginia, and son Karl, Cyril leaves to mourn son Garry and wife Linda; daughter Ruth (Connors) and husband Greg; daughter Penney (McTaggart Cowan); grandchildren Liam, Claire, Maura, Ailish, Garry, and Robbie; along with so many dear friends and relatives in Ireland, Canada and the US. The family expresses its sincere gratitude to Drs. Paul Gardiner of St. John's and Gary Gelfand of Calgary. A celebration of his life will take place in St. John's, Newfoundland this summer. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com    If friends so desire, memorial tributes in Cyril's memory may be made directly to the Canadian Cancer Society, 200 - 325 Manning Rd.

God saw you getting tired,
When a cure was not to be,
So he wrapped
His arms around you,and whispered, "Come to Me."
You didn't deservewhat you went through,
So He gave you rest.
God's garden must be beautiful,
He only takes the best.
And when I saw you sleeping,
So peaceful and free from pain,
I could not wish you back,
To suffer that again.
- Frances and Kathleen Coelho
We love you dearly; you will remain in our hearts forever.

Today Lord, our Dad is at your door and as he enterswe pray and lay before you all that he gave. His love of gardening, the joy of watching the Saturday night hockey game, humor to turn Mom's tears into laughter, to know that french fries could taste so much better served in a brown paper bag, the beauty hidden within his flower garden, to appreciate that cabbage soup could taste so great, for believing in me when I needed it most, teaching us how to trout, the fun in ice skating, the delightin a wave of his hand to neighbors and friends, his labor of chopping wood to keep us warm,the sounds of Wilf Carter, Johnny Cash and Dean Martin, the love of all animals especially puppies and kittens, the happiness he knew in a hug to his grandchildren, blueberry picking upto the Pole Line, and of course Sunday afternoon drives to Cape Spear. So for all his earthly dutiesand his faith in God, we ask that you reunite him with our Mom as he bids us all his final wave, and grant to him eternal rest. "Rest in peace Poppy Jim"

Softly from the shadows
There came a gentle call
You closed your eyes
And went to sleep...
You quietly left us all.

PARDY, William "Craig" - It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden passing of William "Craig" Pardy on January 22, 2016 at the age of 50 years. Craig was born on October 25, 1965 in St. John's, Newfoundland to parents Bill and Betty Pardy. He was raised in Paradise, Newfoundland where he attended Paradise Elementary and later graduated from Queen Elizabeth High School in 1982. One of his earliest and continuing job positions was as a mason with Skinner's Masonry. In 1990 he met the love of his life, Rhonda Dillabough, and after a whirlwind romance they married on July 13, 1991. Joining the family in 1993 came their firstborn, Bradley William Craig, and almost four years later his sister, Taylor Dawn, completed the foursome. Craig's greatest role in life was being a devoted husband and father. Brad and Taylor were his pride and joy, and his greatest moments were spent involved in their daily activities, whether it was acting as caddy for Brad on the golf course, or attending Taylor's volleyball tournaments. Craig's love and dedication to Rhonda and their children was unending. Some of their special times were spent at their cottage at Clear Lake, appropriately named Hearts Content. They also enjoyed trips together to vacation spots in Jamaica, Turks and Caicos, Italy, and Marco Island, Florida, all the time making precious and lasting memories. Friendships were also very important to Craig, and he always looked forward to visits with his "brudders" in Newfoundland, Thursday night golf with his Brandon buddies at Sunnyside, and a regular weekly Friday lunch date with the "F.A.G." His friendships were numerous, and his impact was greatly felt by all those close to him. Craig and Rhonda moved from Newfoundland to Brandon in 1993 where Craig became employed with Craftsmen Painting, followed by a two and a half year job position as a salesman with Murray Chev-Olds. Being as cars were always a passion of Craig's, he thoroughly enjoyed going to work each day. On the occasion of their 10th wedding anniversary, Craig and Rhonda received the exciting news that they'd been accepted as Tim Hortons Brandon franchisee's. Their first store opened on November 30, 2001, with an additional five restaurants in operation by 2012. Both Craig and Rhonda loved their Timmies adventure, and took great pride, not only in their business, but also in the amazing team of employees who gave them their full dedication and support. This opportunity was their dream come true and they were rewarded throughout the years by special recognition for their efforts. Craig's huge smile and welcoming personality was well known to all the customers. Left to mourn with immense sadness is his beloved wife of almost 25 years, Rhonda, son Brad, daughter Taylor and chosen son Coltyn Bates; mother Betty Pardy, sisters Kim Slade (Ed), Marlene Gentry (Terry) and their son Alex, brother Frank (Kerry) and his children Devin and Haley, and special cousin Norma Kilfoy. Also greatly missing Craig are Mom #2 (mother-in-law) Gloria Dillabough; sister-in-law Marci and children Greg, Carrie and Lindsay, brother-in-law Allan and Darlene and their children Jordyn, Robyn and Jayden, aunts, uncles and families and many treasured friends. He was predeceased by his father, Bill Pardy (1992), father-in-law Merv Dillabough (2011), and his best friend and "brother" Vince Crisanti (2015). We know Craig is experiencing not only peace, but immeasurable joy in being reunited with these loved ones. The funeral service to honour Craig's life will be held at Central United Church, 327-8th Street, Brandon, MB on Wednesday, January 27, 2016 at 2:00 p.m., with Reverend Ken DeLisle officiating. Interment will follow at Rosewood Memorial Gardens. Flowers are gratefully declined. In respect of Craig's great desire to help others, donations in his honour may be made to Helping Hands Soup Kitchen, 111 - 7th Street, Brandon, Manitoba, R7A 3S5.
Rest Easy, Craig.
