ALCOCK, Harry Stuart - 1914 - 2002. Calgary, Alberta. After a wonderful life of 88 years, Harry Stuart Alcock slipped away on October 10th from complications due to pneumonia to be reunited with his beloved Daphne. Born May 2nd, 1914 in St. John`s, Newfoundland, he spent the early years of his life first in St. John`s and then Corner Brook. His formal education took place at the Prince of Wales College where he majored in Commerce and Finance. While in College he starred in hockey, soccer and was a member of the Guards Championship Soccer team. As a young CGA he was employed by the Corner Brook West Town Council as a Financial Clerk and later became Manager of Water and Sewerage Town Planning. Later he combined his sports and finance abilities to be instrumental in the creation of Humber Gardens Arena in Corner Brook, and as well was manager of the city`s all star hockey teams. A serendipitous meeting during his college days led to the love of his life. Daphne (nee Snelgrove of Catalina) married Harry August 5, 1940. Their union produced 3 fine sons: Gary, Graham and Bryan. In 1957, they left the island for Toronto to begin new chapters. There Harry worked with the Scarborough Public Utilities as Chief Accountant until his retirement in 1978. He and Daphne then retired to Fort Lauderdale to live the life of snowbirds. Sadly, in 1993 Harry lost his soul mate and best friend, Daphne, after 54 glorious years of marriage. Then, the tragic loss of Graham two years later who "slipped the surly bonds of earth to dance the skies on laughter silvered wings" began to take its toll and his health declined. So in 1999, he moved to Calgary to be closer to family. Harry touched many people in his 88 years. His memory will life on in friends and family. "Pops" is loved and missed especially by grandchildren: David and Jazz (Bryan and Jane) of Calgary, Alberta, Jenny, Sarah and Jay (Graham and Gail) of Phoenix, AZ and Kathy of Toronto (Rev. Gary and Harriet of Nova Scotia). Even though the pain is heavy for us now we take comfort in knowing that "this too shall pass." A private Memorial Service took place Friday, October 18, 2002 in Calgary. Memorial Services will take place again in June 2003 in St. John`s and Corner Brook, Newfoundland (interment). If desired, donations may be made to a charity of your choice. McInnis & Holloway Funeral Homes, 14441 Bannister Rd. S.E.

Born in Greeleytown, Foxtrap, Conception Bay, Newfoundland, on October 11, 1907, he was the son of the late Charles and Mary Jane (Dawe) Butler. He was a teacher for three years before deciding to enter the ministry. As an ordained priest, he served in parishes in Newfoundland (Twillingate, Fogo, Brigus-Salmon Cove, Bay St. George, Bay Roberts), and Nova Scotia (Mulgrave, Bible Hill, Digby-Weymouth, Westphal). He attended Bishop Feild College, St. John`s, before graduating from Queen`s Theological College, St. John`s, and Durham University, Durham, England. Throughout his ministry he used the Bible his friends had given him before leaving for Liverpool, England on the SS Nova Scotia in 1936. He met and married his devoted wife, June (Julia) Earle, in the parish of Fogo, Newfoundland where she was the organist of St. Andrew`s Church. In 1999, St. John`s Anglican Church, Westphal, N.S. honoured him on the 65th anniversary of his ordination. In days when roads were few and far between in Nfld, he carried out his ministry in widespread parishes by traveling on horse and sled, snowshoes, motorboats and dories, walking long distances, biking, by speeder (a small hand-propelled train car), and train. At various times during his ministry he filled many roles ranging from medical advisor in isolated outports to chairing school boards. In the latter role he was instrumental in the building of a consolidated high school on high ground near Bay Roberts, Newfoundland appropriately called Ascension Collegiate. His secret for a long and happy life was to walk every day, not only physically but also spiritually. He was ordained priest at St. John the Baptist Cathedral in St. John`s, Nfld by Bishop White in 1934. He was predeceased by brother Charles and sisters Rebecca and Jessie. Besides his loving wife of 62 years, he is survived by daughters Margaret (Ken) Mackenzie, Salt Spring Island, B.C., and Barbara, Halifax; and sons Bernard (Robina), Dartmouth and Geoffrey (Judi), Granville Ferry, N.S. He will also be sadly missed by grandchildren Erica and Stephen; Elena and Andrew; Bill and David; and Tegan, Kirsten, Leah, and Sean; by great-grandchildren Kendra, Matthew, and Ryan; and by nieces and nephews Ruby LeDrew, Ray (Dot) Bishop, Bert (Doris) Bishop of Kelligrews, Nfld, Daphne (Austin) Earle, St. John`s, and Dallas Buxbaum, Hallandale, Florida. Cremation has taken place. A memorial service to celebrate the life of Rev. Isaac Butler will be held at All Saints Cathedral, Tower Road, Halifax at 11:30 A.M., Friday, October 18. Immediately following the service, a reception will be held in the Cathedral hall, and at 3:00 P.M. interment will take place at St. John`s Anglican Church, Westphal. Family flowers only.

Recall to mind the way he spoke, And all the things he said, His strength, his stance, the way he walked, Remember these instead. The good advice he`d give us, His eyes that shone with laughter, So much of him will never die, But live on ever after. As we loved you, so we miss you, In our memory you are near, Loved, remembered, longed for always, Bringing many a silent tear.
