CADIGAN, William - William (Bill) Cadigan, LL.B, age 54, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, March 1st, 2015. Predeceased by his mother Catherine, he leaves to mourn his buddy and partner Alanna Greene, his most cherished sons, Teddy and Jack, his treasured step-daughter Anna Winter, the boy's Mom Janet Case, his sister Suzy Power (Frank) and his father David (Patricia) along with a very large circle of friends. William (Bill) A. Cadigan was born and raised in St. John's, a student at St. Bon's and Brother Rice High School, graduating in 1977. Bill acquired degrees in pharmacy and philosophy but found his true professional calling in the law. Bill received his LL.B. from the University of New Brunswick in 1989, completing his articles with Public Prosecutions. After his call to the bar on April 11th,1990, Bill practiced law with the firm of O'Brien, Furey, Smith where he remained until July of 1997. In 1997 Bill was appointed Executive Director of the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary Association, where he remained until April of 2000. During his time with the RNCA, Bill provided legal advice to the Association's Executive and represented individual officers on matters requiring the assistance of legal counsel. Bill joined Public Prosecutions in 2000 as a Crown Attorney, an occupation he was devoted to until his passing. Always mindful of his duties as a Crown Attorney, Bill approached his cases with fairness and the heart of an advocate. Bill had a tremendously quick wit and a vast sense of humor. He was immensely popular with his colleagues, the defence bar, court staff, members of the RNC, and even many of those he prosecuted. While he wore his humor on his sleeve, lesser known was his keen sense of compassion for persons, who owing to whatever circumstances, were suffering through tough times, especially persons who were mentally ill, down on their luck, or life had gotten the better of. Bill will be missed greatly by his colleagues. Beyond his contributions to morale, he was never too busy to help, never said he could not do something, and cared about the well-being of those doing the challenging work of prosecutors. Billy is irreplaceable. He will be remembered, mourned and celebrated by far too many to mention. Resting at Caul's Funeral Home LeMarchant Road.

DOBBIN, Gwendolyn (Gwen) Mary Dorothy - "When a journey ends, those who watched the wanderer bravely walk are left with their mourning, and their admiration for a courageous traveler who braved the storms of life's challenges and basked in the knowledge of her family's love."
This, in accordance with Gwen's wishes, is our acknowledgment of her having left us. We, the Dobbin family, have lost another of our own. Predeceased by her Sister, Deborah Geraldine, Gwendolyn Mary, Daughter of the late Paddy and Gwen (Blandford) Dobbin has finished her journey and leaves behind: Sister, Anne Dobbin, St. John's Newfoundland: Brother, Patrick Dobbin and Sister-in-law Lucy (Power) Dobbin, Seal Cove, Newfoundland: Brother, Bill Dobbin and Sister-in-law Kay (Crocker) East Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia: Sister, Elizabeth Dobbin and Brother-in-law Baxter Baker, Vancouver, British Columbia: Son, Colin Patrick Canary, Halifax, Nova Scotia: Niece, Erin Lorien Dobbin, Ottawa, Ontario: Niece, Deborah Dobbin and Husband Jason Van Meer, Grand-niece Lylah Kennedy Van Meer, East Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia: Niece Kimberly Dobbin and Husband Mike Coggins, East Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia: Niece Gillian MacDonald and husband Mark MacDonald, Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Gwen was the best of us. She was the most giving and filled with a thoughtfulness which lent dignity and grace both to her life and any family gathering. The special joy of Gwen's life was her son, Colin, an artist of talent and purpose. Gwen's only regret was not to have remained long enough to witness the successes Colin will one day realize. On her behalf, and at her request, and in acknowledgment of the kindness and warmth so many health professionals freely gave to Gwen during her time, special thanks are sent to the very caring Dr. James Bentley: the compassionate Doctors, nurses and staff in the cancer clinic: the staff on 5A whose warmth and giving hearts made dark days so much brighter: the empathetic and always concerned nurses on the chemotherapy unit: the dedicated and thoughtful members of the Victorian Order of Nurses, the wise and gentle staff of Palliative Care and Continuing Care.

HUNTSMAN, Dr. Richard George - Richard (Dick) George Huntsman passed away at the Two Acres Care Home in Taverham, Norfolk, UK on March 7th, 2015, two days after his 88th birthday. He was suffering from vascular dementia and passed away before he lost his ability to recognize and communicate with his loved ones. He leaves to mourn his loving wife Elaine and his eight children: Jennifer (Ken), Alice (Krim), Rachel (Jerome), David (Tanya), Lucy (Jerome), Tim (Patricia), Philippa (Charles), and Richard (Sunmi); his seventeen grandchildren and his sister Mary. He was predeceased by his parents George and Mary and his brother William. He was born in Perak, Malaysia and moved to England as a child. He received a scholarship to study Medicine at Cambridge University where he was awarded the gold medal for his MD thesis. He immigrated to St. John's with his family in 1975 to become a Professor at the Faculty of Medicine at Memorial University and also to direct the blood transfusion services of the Canadian Red Cross. He was a great personality and a much loved teacher and he was particularly proud of the high regard and affection he elicited in his students. On four occasions during his fifteen-year tenure at Memorial he was awarded the Silver Orator Award, given to the faculty member who most impressed the graduating class of medical students. Around St. John's he was known for many things including snuff taking, two transatlantic crossings in a small converted fishing boat, befriending lost souls, and hosting outstanding Christmas parties. Through his work with the Red Cross he became a frequent guest of Peter Miller on the CBC Radio Morning Show, usually to discuss issues surrounding the blood supply and occasionally, when it was a slow day at the newsroom, because they wanted someone interesting to chat with. After retirement he moved back to England with his wife; they remained in close contact with and enjoyed visits from their many friends in Newfoundland. A funeral service will be held in BrancasterStaithe, Norfolk on March 20th with a eulogy provided by the Reverend Professor Michael Langford, an old friend and colleague from Memorial University.

Pam was a vibrant woman who embraced life, family and friendships. She had a love for writing, reading, poetry, gardening, cooking, music, wine tasting, traveling and following professional tennis. Born in Maidstone, in Southeast England in 1934, she experienced the gripping struggles of WW II as a young girl and also the profound joy once the war ended. After she met Colin, the young couple came to Western Canada in 1957 where they experienced new adventures and started a family. Elvira was born in Saskatchewan; then came Gary, born in Alberta. Settling in Newfoundland in 1963, Pam and Colin quickly built strong friendships and integrated themselves into the St. John's community. Pam had a passion for the arts community and actively competed in squash. There was an instant allure of the British traditions of the Crow's Nest, which was a basis for many of Pam and Colin's enduring friendships. In 1966 a new job opportunity for Colin took the family, including the recently-arrived Jane, to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, where Lawrence was later born. The family enjoyed travels in Kenya and the many cultural fascinations of east Africa before returning to Newfoundland in 1968. Pam had a great aptitude for building relationships, and her love of people and community contributed to her leadership in the cultural and non-profit Newfoundland community. Following her work with MUN Extension Service, she was a founding member and editor of "What's Happening" magazine to help develop the tourism and cultural community. She led several key cultural events for the province including the Humphrey Gilbert 400th Anniversary Celebrations, the Sir Wilfred Grenfell Centenary and the Citizens' Forum on Canada's Future. Many Newfoundlanders in the most remote parts of the province had the good fortune to be endeared to Pam in her travels and work. She became Executive Director of the QuidiVidiRennies River Foundation in the latter part of her career and brought the benefits of the river and the natural environment to so many, retiring after eight years in 2002. After retirement, Pam continued to enjoy an active and vibrant life, making many treasured memories with family and friends.

His father-in-law and mother-in-law Alphonsus and Shirley Kavanagh, brother-in-law Clyde; sister-in-law Shawlene (Parminder) and a large circle of nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and friends. He will surely be missed in the hearts of his favourite little buddies - Kailem, Reid, Jason, Anna and Haley. And by his special niece Olivia. Captain O'Brien will also be missed greatly by his extended family at the Canadian Coast Guard. Captain Tom was a lover of the sea and had a long and respected career with over 30 years of service to his country, joining the Coast Guard in 1984. He was the youngest ever-appointed Captain with the Coast Guard achieving that status at the age of 28. A few of his many accomplishments in his career involved the recovery operation after the bombing of the Air India Flight 182 and the seizure of the Portuguese fishing vessel Santa Mafalda and arrest of it's master as a result of fishing within the 200 mile limit without authorization. His absence amongst his colleagues and employees will be felt for a long time. Cremation and a Celebration of Life have already taken place. A service with the Canadian Coast Guard will be scheduled for a later date.

OLESON, Dr. Maurice Kari - The family is deeply saddened to announce the passing of our beloved brother and uncle, Dr. Maurice Oleson, formerly of the Mathematics Department of Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN). He left us, with the tears and prayers of family at his bedside. He was born in 1940 in the farming and fishing community of Riverton, Manitoba as the cherished son of Emily and Kari Oleson (now deceased). He is survived by his five siblings: sister Trygvine (Jim-deceased); brothers Kristjan (JoAnn), Dennis (Nukte), Brian (Joanne), Fred and numerous nieces and nephews. Maurice grew up as a brilliant student in the small town of Riverton and later excelled in the outside academic world of Applied Mathematics. He served as an important university role model for his siblings. Maurice earned a B.ScHonours from the University of Manitoba (1963) and a PhD in Relativity from the University of Waterloo (1972). He joined MUN in 1972 and officially retired in 2006 following 4 years of long term disability. During his cherished academic career at MUN, he was highly regarded for his devotion to teaching and his love of mathematics. He was a passionate mentor to students, coaching their skills in writing as well as in mathematics. In particular, his sense of humour was a treasure to all, often using his exceptional writing skills to highlight humourous life incidents in a manner that can only be described as "elegant". Maurice had many special interests besides mathematics. They included a special love for traditional music, carpentry, playing pool, his Icelandic heritage and language; and, of course, his beloved cat Tiny. Maurice's siblings would like to thank those many people who were important to him. There were many, and we give thanks to you all. Among those to whom we would like to give special thanks include his dear friends from the MUN Mathematics Department such as Clayton Halfyard, devoted niece Wendy Peppel, his close personal friend and often spiritual mentor Don Rideout, close friends musician Gordon (Patti) Quinton, John Lacey and his former colleague and dear friend Patrick McCarthy in Ireland. The family extends our appreciation to all those dedicated caregivers who provided kindness and care to Maurice over the years. This includes staff at the Miller Centre, Care Givers (home care) and Chancellor Park. A special thanks to the many caring nurses and staff associated with 3rd Floor West Wing at Chancellor Park. Funeral will take place in Manitoba and details will be announced shortly. A memorial service will be held at a later date in St. John's to celebrate his life and achievements. Arrangements are in progress and will be announced in the near future.

POWER, John (Jack) - Grand Falls-Windsor, NL (September 6, 1940 - March 22, 2015)
"Good fortune and a good disposition are rarely given to the same man." - Lily, a Roman historian
Husband, Father, Grandfather, Brother, Uncle, Patriarch, Plumber, Entrepreneur, Singer/Entertainer, Recording Artist, Raconteur, Environmentalist, Outdoorsman, Canoeist, Member of the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 49, Volunteer Firefighter, Search and Rescue Volunteer. Dad enjoyed a bountiful life, remarkable in its diversity - with friends from all walks of life, and a broad array of activities to embrace as passions. Dad did not waiver from his heartfelt conviction that life is for the living! Recently, Dad married Emma Brown of Roddickton and, once again, he was blessed to find love and happiness. We were happy to see a renewal of Dad's joie de vivre as a result of Emma's companionship. Emma recounts how she loved listening to Dad singing and playing his guitar daily; he was an engaging raconteur, entertaining Emma with humorous stories and witty anecdotes that kept her smiling during their days together. Dad was born in Windsor (now the Town of Grand Falls-Windsor) on September 6, 1940. He was the first baby to be baptized by Father Meaney in the new St. Joseph's Catholic Church, which had been recently constructed to replace a Church destroyed by fire. His mother, Clara, and father, Edward (Ned), raised 15 children on Patrick Street. They were a lively, talented, and hardworking family that spread across Canada and the United States. Nan and Grandfather's progeny today number approximately 130!
As a young man, Dad worked in logging with Elijah Price, in what was colloquially referred to as the "haul off". They would manually offload pulpwood from a flatcar into the Exploits River, where it would float to the local newsprint mill. He also worked at Harold Benger's store on Patrick Street. Subsequently, he followed his older brother, Raymond, into the plumbing profession. Much of his early plumbing career was with W.J. Goulding Limited on High Street and its successor companies, Harvey Dawe's Ltd., and then Dawe's Mechanical Ltd. Dad's career saw him work in all regions of his beloved province, including Labrador. Dad later established his own business, The Plumbing Shop, which operated on Main Street for a number of years.
Our mom, Jenny, left Fleur de Lys and arrived in Windsor in 1957; Dad's friend, Doug Leonard, alerted him to the fact that there was a "new girl" in town! Not long thereafter, a handsome and dashing 17 year-old Jack Power made his way to Riff's Department Store on Main Street where he appeared before our mom, a vivacious young beauty employed in the Men's Department, and asked her to cash his pay cheque. Mom dutifully passed the cash to our Dad. Shortly after his departure, she noticed that the cheque was not endorsed. In a panic, Mom quickly secured a colleague to cover her post and fled to the nearby Windsor pool hall where Dad was holding court. Gingerly, Mom knocked on the door and politely asked Dad to sign the cheque. Dad's acquiescence was conditional on the provision that Mom join him at the Globe restaurant for coconut cream pie and a glass of milk; such began a powerful romance that endured for 55 years. Our parents were thrilled to start their family in December 1958, with the arrival of Garry; Valerie followed 13 months later, Leo 16 months after Valerie, Jackie 14 months after Leo, Tony 23 months after Jackie, Lori Ann 34 months after Tony, and Cory 45 months after Lori Ann. They were later blessed with ten grandchildren.
In 1979 just entering their 40s, Dad and Mom had the foresight to seek new horizons for the family. Dad secured employment in the Port Hardy Utah Copper Mine on Vancouver Island, British Columbia where Mom's sister, Myrtle, and her husband, Pat Dempsey, were working. We all headed west to join Dad thereafter. We are eternally grateful for this exceptional life experience, which was instrumental in teaching us about our wonderful country of Canada and its beautiful people, and instilled in us a love of travel and adventure. Dad and Mom were music afficionados and loved to dance. In recent years, Dad recorded three albums of their songs, the second of which bore the title "Powerful music for Family and Friends by Jack Power, the Plumber with the Nice Pipes!" as suggested by son Cory. Mom would unabashedly proclaim that Dad was her favourite singer. She loved Dad's rendition of "We Started Out Young", and he loved singing it to her.
In November 2012, Dad, Leo, and Mom's sister, Bet Lewins, traveled to Australia, where Leo competed in the Total Solar Eclipse Marathon. Dad realized a lifelong desire to visit Australia, which included exploring and swimming on the Great Barrier Reef. In June 2013, Dad and his extended family traveled to Ireland to participate in "The Power Clan Gathering" where Dad was delighted to visit Dunhill Castle, Tramore, which was the first stronghold of the Power Clan who arrived in Waterford with Strongbow in 1169. It is said that all the Powers in Ireland descended from the ancestral home of Dunhill Castle. Music was a lifelong passion for Dad and he was an accomplished singer, guitarist, harmonica player, and, in his youth, an accordion player. In recent years, Dad joined a musical group called "Never Too Old" (NTO) which performs for seniors in Central Newfoundland; Dad, while never considering himself a senior, reveled in the group's activities. On Dad's last day on earth he attended Mass at St. Joseph's and spent the afternoon singing and playing guitar in preparation for the next day's planned performance at the Golden Years Senior's Home. The previous week he spent volunteering his plumbing services at St. Joseph's Church.
Family was priority number one. Education was paramount and our parents took great pride in our early education under the guidance of the Presentation Sisters and Christian Brothers. Our Dad and Mom taught us how to love, to give our best in life, to share, to be generous, and to be respectful to others. They taught us the vital life skill of how to deal with life's adversities. They taught us the value of lifelong learning and the importance of living life, reminiscent of Mahatma Gandhi's "Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever." With Dad's passing, we are reminded of George Jones' classic country song "Who's gonna fill their shoes, Who's gonna stand that tall?" Dad was our mentor; if the true test of a man's integrity and decency can be measured by how he is honoured within his own household, then our dad is unparalleled.
Jack was predeceased by his wife, Jenny (nee Shea), parents, Clara and Edward (Ned) Power, parents-in-law Leo and Catherine Shea, sisters, Bridget, Eileen, and Ann, brothers, Patrick, Dennis, and Wayne and nephews Shawn and Colin. He leaves to mourn his wife, Emma Brown Power (Roddickton); children, Garry (Bev), Valerie (Dayne), Leo (Judy), Jackie (Gary), Tony (Lea Ann), Lori Ann (Todd), Cory (Trish); grandchildren, Jarvis, Cindy, Krizia, Sam, Sarah, Olivia, Jacob, Quaid, Reegan and Caelan; Emma's children, Belinda Brown (Joseph Tesar), Barry Brown (Cathy) and her grandchildren, Jason Reid (Christina), Julie Pabillar (Geo), Alisha and David Brown and her great-grandchildren, Naomi and Nate Pabillar, and Emma and Nicholas Reid; his brothers, Raymond (Nena), Tyrone (Myra), Ed (Nellie), Terry and sisters, Maureen Clarke (Silas), Kathleen Drodge (Weldon), Yvonne Power (Lee Vogan), many nieces and nephews, and Jenny's family, the Shea family of Fleur de Lys. Father William Houlahan and Father Eugene Morris conducted the Mass of Christian Burial at St. Joseph's Parish with interment at the Roman Catholic Cemetery. Father Wayne Dohey visited the funeral home to pray for Dad. Funeral arrangements are entrusted to Hoskins Funeral Home, Grand Falls-Windsor, NL. www.hoskinsfuneralhomes.ca    Pallbearers were sons Garry, Leo, Tony, and Cory, and sons-in-law Gary Moore and Todd Barron.

HE ONLY TAKES THE BEST
God saw you getting tired
And a cure was not to be
So he put his arms around you
And whispered, "Come to me"
With tearful eyes we watched you
And saw you pass away
Although we loved you dearly
We could not make you stay
A golden heart stopped beating
Hard working hands to rest
God broke our hearts
To prove to us
He only takes the best.

WOODWARD, Melvin - (August 23, 1933 - March 16, 2015) - It is with tremendous sadness that we announce the death of Melvin Woodward, who passed peacefully away this morning at his home in Happy Valley-Goose Bay. He leaves to mourn his wife and life time partner, Sibyl, his children; Peter (Nicole Powell), Tana (Mike Whitehead), Melvin Jr. and five grandchildren; Erin, Gillian, Mac, Luke and Andrew. Dad was born in North Boat Harbour, Newfoundland and moved to Goose Bay, Labrador in 1957 to work. Followed by his bride to be Sibyl Coles, they married at the RCAF Chapel in Goose Bay on Remembrance Day of that year. From his early beginnings of pulling seal pelts to the shore and teaching at a sole room school house for $65/month, Mel went on to build an enterprise with 800 employees and $750 million in sales; a testament to his outstanding contributions to business growth and the economy of Newfoundland and Labrador. The companies he has created include Woodward's Oil Limited, Woodward's Limited, Coastal Shipping Limited, Woodward Motors Limited, Labrador Motors Limited, Labrador Marine Services and Arctic Fuel Delivery. He was particularly proud of his ability to re-establish Newfoundland and Labrador's role in the Arctic, and he won all contracts through competitive tendering with the Nunavut Government to provide fuel distribution in the territory. In addition to business our father had a distinguished career in public and community service in our province. Twice elected as a member of the House of Assembly; he served as minister of Labrador Affairs; Director for the Bank of Canada; founding member and President of the Labrador North Chamber of Commerce; President of the Liberal Association; chairman of the Federal Enterprise Development Board for Industry, Trade and Commerce; member of the Memorial University Board of Regents; and chairman of the St. John's Port Corporation. Other significant honours included an Honorary Doctor of Laws degree from Memorial University, the Ernst Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award, and being named to the Newfoundland and Labrador Business Hall of Fame. Our father never forgot his roots. He loved Boat Harbour and continued to share his love for his hometown and for Labrador. Like few other of his generation he saw the north as a land of opportunity, and while others went south to settle and invest, he made the north his home. A man of integrity and hard work, he was loyal to those around him. Today we celebrate our father's accomplishments and mourn the loss of a husband, father, grandfather and a true son of Newfoundland and Labrador. His wake will take place at Fillatre's Funeral Home in Happy Valley-Goose Bay from 2pm-4pm and 7pm-9pm on Tuesday, March 17th and Wednesday March 18th. Funeral Service will be held at St. Andrew's Anglican Church in Happy Valley-Goose Bay at 10:00am on Thursday, March 19th, with interment to follow in Boat Harbour.
