COOPER, Mr. James - St. John's - Born in 11/08/1943 at St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada. It's strange and scary knowing that fifteen years have gone by- so fast, yet so slow. I live everyday for you, I think you know. You will always be the rock to our little family. We accept our fate a little more each day-but we will never get over losing you. It helps us to believe you are watching us, sending blessings from heaven. My Dad, my best friend, and my hero. I'll hold you in my heart as long as it's beating. Endless and unconditional love, Amanda

RUSSELL, Stephen Patrick - 23, of Charlotte, North Carolina died in a drowning accident on Saturday, July 4, 2009, at Jordan Lake, North Carolina. Stephen was born on May 22, 1986 in Grand Falls, Newfoundland, Canada. He eventually moved from Newfoundland to Alberta, where among his other feats, he played AAA hockey. At the age of eighteen, his family moved to Charlotte, NC where he touched the life of everyone who met him in his new home.
Stephen is survived by his devoted parents, Kelly and Brady Buckley of Charlotte, NC, and his father, Brad Bishop of Grande Prairie, Alberta. He is also survived by his beloved younger brother, Brendan, age 12, of Charlotte, grandparents Anita and Boyd Bishop of Grand Falls-Windsor, Newfoundland, a cherished Aunt Lorraine, and many loving aunts, uncles, cousins. Stephen will also be sadly missed by his big brown dog Rudy. He was preceded in death by his twin brother, Matthew, and his maternal grandparents, Madge and Don Russell of Grand Falls-Windsor, Newfoundland.
At the time of his death, Stephen was a rising senior at NC State University where he was studying Political Science. He was interested in the law, politics and writing and although he had not yet decided what path his life would take, his intelligence, empathy and concern for others were certain to make a mark on whatever field he chose and those he would come in contact with. As goaltender for NC State's Hockey team, Stephen loved the spirit of competition, the camaraderie of the team and the game of hockey. He was an outstanding goalie who never failed to pass along his knowledge of the position or his passion for the game to his younger brother Brendan. Blessed with wonderful friends and teammates, Stephen was a proud member of the Wolfpack. Always an athlete, he loved the outdoors, from playing Frisbee golf with teammates, to building sand castles at the beach with family and friends, to riding bikes and taking his dog Rudy for walks.
Stephen always had a quiet strength about him. Family and friends knew that they could count on him no matter what. Stephen's strong spirit and loving nature will live on in his family's memory and their bond will never be broken.
A Memorial will be held on Wednesday, July 8, 2009 at 11:30 a.m. on the campus of North Carolina State in the White Gardens at the Arboretum. Following the memorial, Stephen's remains will be returned to Newfoundland for burial. A Mass will be held at the Cathedral of Immaculate Conception on Saturday, July 11th at 11:00 a.m. in Grand Falls-Windsor, Newfoundland, Canada. Please join us in a celebration of Stephen's life on Friday, July 10, 2 - 6 p.m. at the Seniors Complex, Edward's Place, Grand Falls-Windsor.
Funeral arrangements made by Griffin Funeral Home, Pittsboro, NC.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that a donation be made in his honor to the North Carolina State Club Hockey Team. Donations can be sent to the team at: NCSU Club Hockey, 1613 Trinity Road, Raleigh, NC 27607 - "in memory of Stephen Russell."
The family would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude for the outpouring of support and love during this difficult time. It is a great comfort to see and hear how many lives Stephen touched with his kindness, love of life and easy going nature.

Predeceased by his parents, Kathleen Magee (nee Yeates), London, Ontario and James Robert Gordon Sutherland, Limehouse, Ontario. Born in Victoria, BC on February 13, 1938, he grew up in Limehouse and London, Ontario and studied at the University of Western Ontario where he received his B.E.Sc. (Electrical) degree in 1960. After graduating, Alan married and moved his family to Montreal and then Newfoundland where he worked for Monenco and ShawMont. He served as a major in the Canadian Armed Forces Army Reserves and was Deputy Commanding Officer of the 56th Service Battalion, St. John's. In 1978, he relocated his family to St. Catharines, where he kept up his interest in the Militia as the Deputy Commanding Officer of the 23rd Service Battalion, Hamilton. He continued to work as a Consulting Engineer until a stroke in 1994. While the years that followed challenged him, his resolve to live life to the fullest and to love his family never faltered. He was a Past Master Mason with Perfection Lodge 616 and a life member of the Military Engineers' Association of Ontario. Al had a lifelong interest in Amateur Radio that started in high school. He had call signs issued by Industry Canada in Ontario, Quebec and Newfoundland over the years.

Al's last recorded call was VE3EGY. When an Amateur passes away he is known as a "Silent Key" or "SK" and his call sign is appended thus.

"When tomorrow starts without me and I'm not here to see... If the sun should rise and find your eyes filled with tears for me. I know how much you love me, as much as I love you... And each time you think of me, I know you'll miss me, too. So when tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart... For every time you think of me, I'm right here in your heart."
