"That man is a success -
who has lived well,
laughed often and loved much;
who has gained the respect of intelligent men
and the love of children;
who has filled his niche
and accomplished his task;
who leaves the world better
than he found it;
who has never lacked appreciation of earth's beauty
or failed to express it.;
who looked for the best in others
and gave the best he had." Unknown

Following a short period teaching in Newfoundland, Dennis earned a Masters of Science Degree at the University of Oregon and a medical degree at Memorial University of Newfoundland. He then set up medical practice in Dalhousie, New Brunswick, where he served the community as a physician, the Province as President of the New Brunswick Medical Society (1988 - 1989), and Canada as President of the College of Physicians and Surgeons (1985 - 1986). Later in his career, as an elected member of the Legislative Assembly of New Brunswick (1999 - 2003), he represented the people of Dalhousie-Restigouche and the people of the province as Minister of Health and Community Services (1999 - 2000), Minister of Health and Wellness (2000 - 2001), and Minister of Education (2001 - 2003).

Adding to his inventions, he earned a National Research Council Grant to develop a ground contact monitoring device for Olympic race walking. In keeping with his lifelong passion for athletics, he competed in the Canadian Senior Games, winning gold. "Higher, Further, Faster, and Stronger" was his approach to everything. Participating in the Pan-Am Masters Championships in Vancouver, BC, representing Canada and New Brunswick, Dennis competed in the decathlon achieving the top score in the event, a New Brunswick provincial record in the 70-74 year old master's class.
In Dennis' own words: "I have been blessed with a wonderful profession. I have been privileged to care for others who hold the medical profession in high esteem."

As he had the west coast in his blood, he would travel yearly to his vacation home in Hemet, California, enjoying time with his family and life-long friends.
In June, 2016, the family moved to Victoria, BC, where he spent the last days of his life enjoying the beauty of that City.

Born: July 27th, 1944
Passed on: March 4th, 2018

With our hearts full of love, sadness and the best of memories we announce the peaceful passing of our wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend to all, Liz Hawco (Dower). Liz was predeceased by her parents Ronald and Elizabeth Dower and her sister Bride Power. She is survived by her husband, children, grandchildren, her sisters Alice and Mary Dower, her brother Ronald (Shirley) Dower and her extended Dower and Hawco family. Born in Conche, NL, Liz grew up in St. Johnís and graduated from the General Hospital School of Nursing. A serendipitous trip to a deli on the corner of Patrick Street led to a lifelong partnership with George. Together they welcomed four children: Paul (Allison), Diane (Alastair), Michael (Agena) and Stephanie (Rick). Liz was an immensely proud grandmother of eight grandchildren who were the lights of her life: Beth, Sam, Jack, Sophia, Sarah, Oliver, Skyler and Jasper. They were her greatest treasures and made putting up with raising her four children worthwhile. Liz was a passionate, dedicated and caring nurse, finding her true calling in psychiatric nursing. Her loving, tolerant and progressive views were evidenced in her advocacy for de-stigmatizing mental illness and she was a true and early ally to the LGBTQ2S+ community. Her door was always open and she somehow made time for everyone, especially those in need. Her beautiful spirit lives on in all of us who were lucky to share her light. Cremation has taken place.

LESLIE, Ross Edward
Born: October 23rd, 1959
Passed on: March 13th, 2018

It is with great sadness that the family of Ross Edward Leslie announces his sudden passing on Tuesday March 13, 2018. Ross is predeceased by his loving parents, Cameron and Manny (Madeleine) Leslie and leaves his wife Cathy, daughter Lauren, brother Trevor (Elizabeth), sister Sharon (Scott), sister-in-law Karen, brother-in-law John (Terri) nephews Paul, Harry, Christopher, niece Kendra, in-laws Cliff and Betty, many cousins and a world of friends. Ross was a wonderful man whose heart stretched from the city streets of Toronto to the Laurentian lakes and the cliffs of Newfoundland. Ross was a Montrealer born and bred who lived and worked in the film and television industry in both Ontario and Newfoundland. After over 10 years in theatre, as an actor and tour manager he focused his talents in the film and television industry. He was widely respected as a Line Producer/Production Manager on shows such as Republic of Doyle, Anne of Green Gables, Frontier, Caught, Little Dog and most recently, Star Trek Discovery. In this role he was a quick thinker with a broad view yet so good at in depth analysis. He always worked with the lens of kindness balanced perfectly with bluntness. But this does not capture him. Ross was a foodie, a quilter, a theatre buff, a master martini maker, a hiker, a photographer, a historian, an actor and a golfer. He collected friends like he collected art. Ross became friends with people immediately. He did it by inviting them over for martinis and dinner, on a hike, or simply for a coffee. If you were to name a few of his attributes, you'd say wise, kind, thoughtful, trustworthy, romantic, hilarious, but loyal and generous would top the list. He supported everyone in big ways and small. He gave often and with grace and ease.
Ross worked hard but also knew how to live well. He was the guy who was given the best tables in the best restaurants and sat so that he was perfectly framed, by a window or door. He was the man who had impeccable taste in impossibly pointed shoes. He was the person who every bloody year replaced the art in his rental home in St. John's with favourite pieces from his collection of local Newfoundland artists. He hiked with a bottle of wine, 'truffled' cheese and real china in his backpack. He even has a sealskin coat named "The Ross" after him.
He wasn't just a member of the Dunany Community, he was fully engaged as a leader. Like his mother, Manny, before him, he loved being Club Captain of the Dunany Country Club for many years. Like his father, Cam, before him, Ross was president of the same course. He was also a warden of St. Paul's Church. Most importantly, Ross was a family man, well raised by his parents who held family values high. He spent idyllic childhood summers with them his brother, Trevor and sister, Sharon at their family cottage in Dunany. Dunany is the place that holds his heart.
Cathy and Lauren were the stars in his life. When he talked about his daughter Lauren it was with such tremendous pride that people would get teary. Ross was many things to many people, but his biggest and most important role was as a father to Lauren. He was the quintessential 'fun' Dad. He loved to take her on 'big explores' in the woods at the cottage, loved to walk her around on the Dunany golf course before the age of 5 and demonstrated how to 'host' a multitude of parties. If Lauren had to choose which parent to go shopping with it, it would not be practical, thrifty Mom but extravagant Dad. He instilled in her his love for the theatre and the arts. She attended an arts school and has followed in her father's footsteps in the film world and regularly sought his sage advice.
And when he spoke of his wife Cathy, it was with a "get a load of how good I got it" smile. (He was right to do so, she's the original kick-ass feminist) Married for almost 28 years, they loved to hike the trails of Newfoundland, cycle in Toronto, and enjoyed spending time at their cottage kayaking, swimming, golfing, and hosting dinner parties with family and friends. With Cathy retiring from teaching this June they were making plans to build a new home on the lake. As one of his friends quipped, Ross was unique and stood out in a business filled with individuality. Ross made an enormous difference in the lives he touched. That is the gift he had. "He was a man, take him for all in all, I shall not look upon his like again." Hamlet. The family will receive friends at the HUMPHREY FUNERAL HOME A.W. MILES - NEWBIGGING CHAPEL, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Davisville Avenue), Toronto (1-800-616-3311) from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. and 6:00 - 9:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 22nd. A funeral service will be held in ST. SIMEON'S ANGLICAN CHURCH, 445 Rue Principal, Lachute, Quebec at 11 o'clock on Thursday, March 29th.
If desired, in lieu of flowers please feel free to donate to the following charities that Ross held dear: In Toronto, it's The Actor's Fund of Canada (afchelps.ca); in Quebec, it's St. Paul's Church, 1176 Dunany Road, Lachute, Quebec, J8H3W8 and in Newfoundland, Perchance Theatre at Cupids www.perchancetheatre.com   Condolences, photographs and memories may be forwarded through www.humphreymilesnewbigging.com

During his career, he was deployed on various destroyers sailing throughout North America and Europe with duties that included communications technician and clearance diver. He was also an electronics/communications instructor at CFB Stadacona and platoon commander at CFB Cornwallis. Although he served in peacetime, fatalities at sea were not uncommon with the worst tragedy occurring off the coast of England in 1969 when an explosion on the HMCS Kootenay, the sister ship to his vessel, the HMCS Saguenay, resulted in 53 injuries and 9 deaths followed by burial at sea from HMCS Saguenay. His experiences created an understanding of the unique stresses faced by military members and their families leading to a final posting at the Military Family Resource Centre in Halifax.
He also studied psychology at Saint Mary's University during this time. After retirement, he brought his knowledge and experience to CFB Gander and CFB Cornwallis where he coordinated the establishment of the Military Family Resource Centres on those bases. He also taught Human Resource Management at the Nova Scotia Community College and instructed fleet captains and crews with Clearwater Seafoods. For the last several years, he assisted his wife in running Grange Cottage Bed and Breakfast in Annapolis Royal, NS. Ron was a leader, mentor and teacher. Patient, thoughtful and stoic,

MARTIN, Ethel Mae (nee Short)
Born: August 3rd, 1949
Passed on: March 26th, 2018
Ethel Mae Martin (nee Short)
, age 68, passed away at the Health Science Centre in St. John's after a long (but too short) battle with cancer. Her love of family and faith in God supported her through her struggles and gave her peace. A remarkable mother, sister, daughter, grandmother, aunt, friend, and wife, Ethel was an amazing cook, impressive talker, and a generous woman. She married the love of her life Claude Martin on April 18, 1971, and they shared 38 happy years together until he died on October 13, 2009. She loved to watch golf and spending time with her grandchildren.
She enjoyed Facebook and hot water tea. She adored Princess Diana and was looking forward to watching the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. She had a strong faith and treasured her time with her best friend Alice at the Mary Queen of Peace Catholic Church. She surrounded herself with memories of her family and friends. She gave freely of her time. She supported her family and friends. She enjoyed berry picking. She talked to everyone.
She had a son Patrick Martin and daughter-in-law Marlene who gave her a grandson Connor (9), and granddaughters Samara (6), Kenzi (4), and Tira (2) that she lived with for nearly 14 years. She had another son Michael and daughter-in-law Kathryn who gave her grandsons Matthew (21), and Nicholas (17). The grandchildren were her life. Her biggest regret was that she would not be around to watch them grow up, seeing them get married, and be there when they had children. Left with fond and loving memories are sisters Elsie (Andy Stoyles) of Gander and Elaine (Ted Decker) of Guelph; brothers Alvin (Joan) of Upper Island Cove, Hayward (Bonnie) of Lushes Bight, Clifford (Velma) of Paradise, Don (Louann) of Lunenburg, Carl (Carol) of St. Lawrence, Randy (Barbara Walsh) of Lushes Bight, Bruce of Lushes Bight, John (Pauline) of Lushes Bight; sister-in-law Shirley Short of Bryant's Cove; nieces Debbie (Mark Connor), Margaret (Mark Topping) and Sharon (Craig Campbell-Macsween).

McDONALD, Michael John
Passed on: March 27th, 2018

Michael Passed away peacefully at The Doctor L. A. Miller Center on Tuesday, March 27th at the age of 57. He was predeceased by his mother (Mary), his father (Donald) and sister (Eileen). Left to mourn are his partner Trevor Edwards, his daughters Erika, Valerie, and Kyla, his siblings Don (Donna), Christine (Wayne), Ann (Nelson), Joe (Marguerite), Alice (Albert),Sharon ((Paul), Laura (Barry), Edward (Mary) Peter (Christine), Dianna (Dino), Adrian (Kim), Mary (Dennis), Larry (Denise) and a large circle of extended family and friends.
Mike had a unique way of making children no matter how young feel valued and respected. This was especially evident in his relationship with his own children, and nieces and nephews who shared memories with him that will be both lasting and a testament to the value of family love. This love of children flowed freely into his career as a teacher. Most of his career was spent as a Kindergarten teacher. It is remarkable to think that so many children could fit so tightly into one heart but they did. Colleen Wilcox once wrote that, "Teaching is the greatest act of optimism." No matter what hurdles Mike was forced to endure, he did so with complete optimism and a sense of humor. His smile and sense of humor were contagious and will be sadly missed by all those who were lucky to be part of his life. Mike's mantra was to live life to the fullest and focus on the positive. Although his life was short, it was a full one filled with just the right amount of laughter and love that touched people from the age of five to ninety five.
"Memories of our lives, of our works and our deeds, will continue in others"

MOORES, Bertha Christine
1947 - 2018

Peacefully, on March 14, 2018, with her family at her side, in her own home. Loving wife of Douglas, beloved mother of Gregory (Julie), Ian (Linda), Beth (Matthew). Adoring and devoted "Nan" to Sara, Lauren, Roland, Victor and Hillary Christine. Dear daughter of Arthur and Beatrice Cramm and daughter-in-law of Alec and Maysie Moores. Sister of Barbara (Richard) and Edgar (Karen). Sister-in-law of Darroch (Nancy) and David (Norma). Kind Aunt to her nieces and nephews, Janna, Carl, Andrew, Neal, Craig, Joanne, Paul and Gail. Also, many kind and caring friends and other family members will miss and fondly remember Chris.
Chris met Douglas in July, 1967 and from then to now, over 50 years, they shared a wonderful and happy life together. Their children and grandchildren brought immense joy and happiness to Chris. She was always a source of guidance and support to her family through her life. As the family shared many special occasions over the years, Chris, as Mother and Nan, was the fulcrum around which those events rotated.
Chris attended Acadia University and graduated from Memorial and Dalhousie Universities. She taught school for a brief period before she began her family. She was very active in her community in various organizations and youth groups. She was a founding member of the CBN Figure Skating Club, President of the NL Figure Skating Association and a Director of Skate Canada. Chris was a very creative person and had real flair for doing things in unique ways. She loved making cards for special occasions for her family and friends and took great pleasure in assembling her own beautiful scrapbooks - she spent many happy hours doing so. "The Paperie" store, which she started with her niece Janna, provided many of her friends with an opportunity to create their own special memories. Chris loved to entertain her family and friends, both at home and at Ocean Pond, and made sure that nothing was left undone to ensure the success of those occasions.
From very early in their marriage, and often with their children, Chris and Doug travelled to many different parts of the world. Chris was adventurous, and she truly loved to see and explore new places. From the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, to the Great Wall of China and the Western Wall of Jerusalem, along with numerous stops in between, they journeyed and were very happy doing so. However, her two favourite places on earth were Hilton Head Island, in South Carolina, and the family's cabin at Ocean Pond. All the times she spent there with her family and friends brought Chris great joy and contentment.
Chris was a remarkable woman and possessed a beautiful spirit. She was dedicated and devoted to her family. She was a kind, caring and loving wife, mother and grandmother. She was also a true and loyal friend to those whom she met on the road of her life.
The family wishes to express sincere gratitude and thanks to their many friends who were so kind and considerate to Chris during her illness. Donations in her memory may be made to the H. Bliss Murphy Cancer Care Foundation, 300 Prince Philip Dr., St. John's, NL, A1B 3V6, or online at cancercarefoundation.nf.ca   Visitation to be held at Carnell's Funeral Home, Freshwater Road on Thursday, March 15 from 2-5 and 7-9, and Friday, March 16 from 2-5 and 7-9. Funeral to be held at Wesley United Church, Patrick Street, on Saturday, March 17, at 2 p.m. with a reception to follow at the Parish Hall.To send a message of condolence, please visit www.carnells.com
"I'd like the memory of me
to be a happy one.
I'd like to leave an afterglow
of smiles when life is done.
I'd like to leave an echo
whispering softly down the way,
of happy times and laughing
times and bright and sunny days.
I'd like the tears of those who
grieve, to dry before the sun,
Of happy memories that I leave.
When life is done."

PARSONS, Gordon
Resident of Labrador City, passed away on March 15, 2018 at the age of 73 years. Gordon is survived by his honey Clemmie, number one son Karl and number one daughter Susan. He is also survived by his siblings Liz Keating (Francis), Dianne Stamp (Jimmy), Jack Parsons (Marg), Francis Parsons (Colette), Keith Parsons (Dianne), Gary Parsons (Trudy), Aiden Parsons, Margie Morey (Wayne), Linda Oldford (Tom), Teddy Parsons (Dianne) and Mary Parsons. Gordon is predeceased by his parents Frank and Mary (Everson) Parsons and brothers Doug Parsons (Marilyn) and Eddie Parsons (Terri).
Gordon was born a Newfoundlander and adopted by Canada in 1949. He was born in St. John's and educated in both Flatrock and St. John's. He moved from his hometown of Flatrock to Goose Bay in 1963, where he worked for the United States Air Force for ten years. In 1966, he met and married Clemmie Clarke. They later moved to Happy Valley where their first child, Karl, was born in 1967. In 1973, the family moved to Labrador City where Gordon began working for the Alesco Supplies & Printing. Gordon worked for, owned and was associated with the Aurora newspaper until 2004. In 1974, Gordon and Clemmie welcomed their daughter Susan into the world. Karl currently resides in Labrador City and Susan in Fredericton. Gordon's interests were vast and included reading, photography, CB and ham radio, pistol shooting, hunting, birdwatching, geocaching and, to a lesser degree, fishing. He also had a passing interest in prospecting, naturism, hiking, aromatherapy, woodworking and machining.
In later years, computers and the internet played a significant part in his life, as did church and walking until arthritis took its toll. An extensive traveler, he died poor in money but rich in experience, having visited all 10 provinces, 39 states, Mexico and Cuba. His lifestyle underwent a major shift when, at the age of 54 and weighing 350 lbs, he had a heart attack and required four bypasses. Two years later, he weighed 250 lbs, was very active and established a near-vegetarian diet. Memberships have included the Camera Club, Toastmasters, the Knights of Columbus, the Labrador West Chamber of Commerce, Mensa, the North Star Rod and Gun Club, the Labrador Heritage Society, the Labrador Trap and Skeet Club, the Caribou Club, ham radio clubs, S.O.A.R and other related national groups. Gordon loved the Labrador land and it's wildlife, especially birds, but most of all, it's people. He will be mourned by all those who knew him. He is a legend of Labrador, it has been said. A most sincere and heartfelt thank you to everyone for all the love and support during this difficult time - Clemmie, Karl and Susan.
