Charlie's working life was spent in Newfoundland, first with the Bank of Nova Scotia at St. John's, Grand Bank and Carbonear. He joined the Newfoundland Fisheries Board, which became the federal Department of Fisheries after March 31, 1949, when Newfoundland joined Confederation. He worked through a number of increasingly significant roles in the Federal Government, culminating in his role as Manager of the Newfoundland Personnel Office of Environment Canada in 1972. He retired from the Public Service of Canada on April 5, 1975 and was honoured by colleagues in both St. John's and Ottawa. He was both interested in and proud of his Newfoundland culture and heritage and has made many contributions from family collections to the Newfoundland Archives and the Newfoundland Museum.
On July 1, 2005, as part of a tribute to the Year of the Veteran in Canada, some of his donations were recognized publicly in a display of memorabilia related to family relative, Sir William Coaker, at the newly constructed museum, The Rooms, in St. John's. He was also a keen student of his own family's roots, and spent countless hours tracing them and sharing information about the family ancestors from the West Country of England.
Charlie was a true gentleman, and, although a very private person, was always willing to share conversation about his life and that of his family, whom he loved dearly as they loved him. Betty, Des and Dean were his life, and he was passionately proud of their individual capabilities and accomplishments. He was unselfish to a fault, and he always thought of others and attended to their needs before his own. He had a subtle wit that was enjoyed by all who knew him. The family will forever be indebted to special friend, Karen Foubert, R.N. (Brandon) for her love, support, advice and caring, especially during Charlie's recent illness. Cremation has taken place. A memorial service will be advertised to take place at a future date in Brandon. The family requests that no flowers be sent. Donations in Charlie's memory may be made to a charity of one's choice. Expressions of sympathy may be placed with the family's funeral directors at www.brockiedonovan.com in Brandon, Manitoba.

Not too many people in Great Britain have any idea of life in Britain's oldest colony, Newfoundland, which sits out in the freezing Labrador Current, ice bound in places for many months of the year. The country is peopled by the folk of West Country England, southeastern Ireland, a few Scots and a few French. They all came to this country to escape hardship and persecution at home, and to earn a hard living from the then enormous cod fishery that was supposed to last forever, but unfortunately greed and avarice and modern technology destroyed this great God given resource.
Dr. George Cruickshank came to Newfoundland in the early fifty's when there were hardly any roads, and travel from outport to outport was by boat dog-team and by horse and sleigh. Many think that this was a romantic and fun way to travel but the passenger had to walk or trot most of the time!!! George had to perform major surgery in outlying places with primitive anesthesia, and if lucky, with the help of a nurse, and his surgical prowess was well recognized throughout the Island. People in Fogo island still talk of his self-sacrifice and his duty to his patients, and still remember the night of a savage blizzard when his jeep was disabled and he literally shovelled his way ten miles to see his ailing patient. Yes, he was a strong man. The poorer his patients were the more he loved them. You see George was a humble man, and had all the Christian ways of a Medical Missionary.
George loved fun and life and thank God he never took himself too seriously. He was always ready to take a joke on himself and had that grand gift of laughter even when the going was rough.
Dr. Cruickshank had a poetic and loving heart, and of course was always ready with a quote from his favourite bard, Robbie Burns. The world will be a poorer place without you George, but your presence here in Newfoundland will gladden hearts for years to come. None of us here can ever forget all your immense generosity, especially to the many visitors to your home which was perennially open to so many strays. You loved music and especially the folk music of your beloved Newfoundland, "When I reach that last big shoal, Where the ground swells break asunder, Where the wild sands roll to the surges toll, Let me be a man and take it, When my dory fails to make it When my dory fails to make it"
You were a man George, and all your old colleagues and friends in Newfoundland remember you with immense love and respect. We all miss you and just say May the good Lord hold you safely in the palm of his hand. Farewell for now, from all the people in Newfoundland who dearly loved you.

MOORES, The Honourable Frank D. - Newfoundland and Labrador's second premier passed away on July 10th, 2005 at hospital in Perth, Ontario, at the age of 72, after a battle with cancer that never conquered his spirit or zest for life. Premier from 1972 to 1979, Frank was devoted to the province and its people. He was the loving and beloved husband of Beth, brother of Megan Nutbeem, father of Susan, Deborah, Michele, Jill, Nicole, Stuart, Andrea and Stefan, father-in-law to Andy, Chris, Al, Lisa and David, grandfather of Becky, Josh, Sarah, Rachel, Zoe, Jay, Nick, Sasha, Hilary, Kyle, Evan, Laura, Cam, Cole, Hunter, Riley and Gabrielle, and great-grandfather to Sophie.
Born in Carbonear, Newfoundland, Frank graduated from St. Andrew's College in Aurora, Ontario, where for two years he was Commanding Officer of the Cadets. Active in the family fish business and community affairs in Harbour Grace during the 1960s, Frank helped found the Cee-Bees hockey team, for which he was recently inducted into the Newfoundland Hockey Hall of Fame. In 1968, Frank was elected M.P. for Bonavista-Trinity-Conception, and in 1969, president of the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada. In 1972, he was elected Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador, where he worked tirelessly to develop the economy of the province, democratize its politics, and preserve its culture of fierce pride and compassion, which he embodied in his own personality. In the 1980s, Frank was active on the federal political scene, founding a government relations firm in Ottawa and then, in the early 1990s, began spending more and more of his time with his family at his cherished home in Chaffey's Lock, Ontario.
Avid fisherman, crack shot, and lover of the outdoors, Frank was never happier than when he was on a river, in the woods, or on the barrens. A wonderful raconteur with an endless trove of stories, acute observations, and lore of Newfoundland and Labrador, Frank lived, as one of his friends once said, "at a time which was probably the best he could have chosen for himself."
To everyone who knew him, on either side of the political aisle and whatever their walk in life, he was a gentleman who will always be remembered for his vibrant warmth, wit and humanity. As expressions of sympathy, memorial donations made to the Frank Moores Scholarship at St. Andrew's College or to the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated by the family. Condolences at: frankmooresfamily@yahoo.com
The family will receive friends at the Carnell Funeral Home, St. John's, NL on Wednesday evening from 7-10 p.m. and on Thursday morning from 10 until 12 Noon. A state funeral will be held in Cochrane St. United Church, St. John's, NL, Thursday, July 14, 2005 at 2 o'clock. A memorial service will be held in Ontario at a later date, details to be announced.

PRESSE (Wallace), Barbara Mary - 56. With great sadness, we announce the passing of Barbara Presse, beloved wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend. Barbara passed away peacefully, surrounded by her loving family, on July 13, 2005.
Barbara was an educator by profession. Fluently bilingual, Barbara taught for Xerox Corporation in Halifax and Paris, at Mount Saint Vincent University, for the Federal Government, and in the Halifax and Dartmouth school system where she was a recipient of an award for teaching excellence. She held a Masters Degree in French Literature from Dalhousie University and degrees from Laval University and Mount Saint Vincent University, as well as a Diploma in Ministry and Theology from the Atlantic School of Theology.
A believer in the value of lifelong learning, Barbara studied music at Dalhousie University, and art history, drawing and painting at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. Barbara was devoted to her alma mater. She attended the Convent of the Sacred Heart for 14 years, where she graduated from the Junior College after having served as Head Girl. Barbara recently co-chaired the successful Building Courage and Confidence Capital Campaign at Sacred Heart School.
A dedicated community volunteer, Barbara was involved in her children's schools, in the Fine Arts Parents' Association, and on the Boards of Symphony Nova Scotia, Waegwoltic Club and Sacred Heart School.
Barbara also served numerous charitable organizations. Barbara was a dedicated parishioner of Saint Thomas Aquinas Church where she served as a member of the Parish Council, a religious education teacher for ten years and a lector for numerous years.
Barbara had a lifelong interest in politics and devoted her talents to the Liberal Party over the past 35 years. She inherited her passion for politics from her father, Ron Wallace, and delighted in running several successful political campaigns for him. Barbara's many interests included tennis, golf, tournament bridge (achieving the rank of life master), travel, art and music. She was a member of Ashburn Golf Club and the Waegwoltic Club, and a life member of the Alumni, Sacred Heart School.
More than anything, Barbara was defined by the love of her family. She married her true love, Bill, with whom she celebrated 25 years of marriage in 2004. Her children, Andrew, Nick and Allison, were the source of her greatest pleasure and the recipients of her deepest love. The support and love of Barbara's parents and five siblings uplifted her throughout her entire life.
Barbara enjoyed travelling with her family and took many memorable trips, including RV'ing in the Rockies, California, Australia, and New Zealand; and, numerous family vacations to Sunday River in Maine for skiing; and to Prince Edward Island at Dalvay-by-the-Sea.
Barbara will be deeply missed by Bill, Andrew, Nick and Allison; her parents Ron and Patricia Wallace; her siblings Suzanne (Don Presse), Mary Beth (Adam Antczak), Ian (Gail Hogan), Mark (Anita Lorelli), and Jennifer (Sergei Shirokov); nieces and nephews: her namesake Barbara, Ian, Elizabeth, Stuart, Claire, Duncan, Kate, Kevin, Jack, Julia, and Jacqueline; father-in-law Bill (Myrna), aunts, uncles; cousins, and many, many friends.
