He was predeceased by his son David, his parents Harold and Mary and stepfather Murray Sloan.
     Harold was a proud Newfoundlander and graduate of St. Bonaventure's College who gained national acclaim as a radio and television broadcaster. His career spanned nearly five decades, from the early days in Newfoundland when he was known as "Uncle Harry" on "Junior Jamboree", through a thirty year career with the CBC hosting such popular programs as "As It Happens", "Morningside", "Marketplace", "Take 30", and TV Ontario's "Speaking Out". In 1976, he received an ACTRA Award for Best Public Affairs Broadcaster for Radio as the host of CBC Toronto's "Metro Morning".
      Harold was also involved in numerous fundraising efforts most notably his longstanding association with the Janeway Children's Hospital Foundation Telethon as part of the Children's Miracle Network. His career and volunteer work notwithstanding, his true devotion was to his family. As husband, father and "Papa", Harold took great pride in the accomplishments of his children and grandchildren, bending many an ear with tales of their latest adventures.

Born in North River, Conception Bay, Nfld., April 13, 1917, she is predeceased by her parents Richard and Ellen Fillier, her brothers William John Fillier and Samuel Fillier and sisters Rebecca Batten and Fanny Snow.

Marrying John French Rumboldt, she began her family in Coley's Point, Nfld. One child, Richard, died when only an infant. Three more children, a boy, John French, and two girls, Beulah Allison and Eileen Gladys, became the foundation of her family. While they were still children, Emma lost her husband John Rumboldt to tuberculosis. As a single mother of three children, she moved to St. John's where she supported her children by working in the Fever Hospital. There she met and, in 1948, married Willis Clifford Oldford of Burnside, Bonavista Bay, Nfld. Twice widowed himself, Willis was father of a son from each marriage: Edward Shirley (mother Annie Brown Dyke) and Clifford Frederick Kitchener (mother Mabel Green).

The family emigrated from Nfld. to Toronto, Canada to build a new life for their family of five. The family increased to six children when she gave birth to another son, Richmond Wayne, in Toronto. Family was all important and she is already terribly missed by her surviving children and their spouses: John and Edna Rumboldt, Beulah and Ralph Batten, Ed and Irene Oldford, Eileen and Jim Harrison, Clifford Oldford and his late wife Kay Oldford, and Wayne and Nancy Oldford.

Peacefully, in her bed at home, surrounded by her family, Kate Oldford died Monday, January 14, 2002 after an 18-month battle with cancer. Through it all she remained Katie, Mom and Nanny to her family, which she cherished more than anything. She maintained her sense of humour, telling her children just hours before she passed away that they were acting like "KGB agents" as they cared for her. As soon as she realized all her family had arrived from far and wide, she knew it was time to go.

Kate was born November 20, 1942 in St. John's, Newfoundland, into a large, boisterous and loving Newfoundland family. She was raised in Ontario, as her family relocated to Guelph, and later, London. She began her adult life as a homemaker, married with two children before her 20th birthday. So began a life devoted to family. Kate later started to work as a grocery cashier. She eventually became head cashier, a regional trainer of cashiers and a head office personnel manager, helping hire and train new employees. Before retiring to become a devoted fan of CNN, Kate sold designer clothes at a women's store, combining her love of fine fashion with her long career in retail. She loved revelling in the lives of her three children and two grandchildren, Chanel No. 5, a tea before bedtime, music and books, discussing the news, tanning on warm days, staying warm by a fire on cold days, chocolate, her duvet, cooking Sunday dinners, jewellery, going for a drive... and angels.

But first and foremost, she loved her family. She leaves her husband Cliff, her daughter Joanne, husband Mark and the Reid family, her son Bill and his wife Allison and the Vuchnich family, her daughter Jennifer, her cherished grandchildren Emily and Darien, her beloved parents Pauline and Ralph Hammond, her brothers Robert and Richard, her sisters-in-law Laurel and Jo-Anne, and her niece and nephews Danielle, Evan, Paul and James. Her lifelong friend Shirley Craven was at her side, a living angel, throughout her illness. Her devoted friends Sal and Tina Foto were also there at the end.

Kate would want to express her gratefulness to an extraordinary team of health care professionals at the Hamilton Regional Cancer Centre, including Dr. Ralph Meyer, nurses Jane Garner and Tracey Allan, all the clinic's amazing chemotherapy nurses, Dr. Ronan Foley and the nurses and technologists from the stem cell program, the staff of Ward 396 and Haematology team at Henderson Hospital, Dr. Jonathan Sussman and his radiation technologists, and the clinic's staff of caring volunteers.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, January 19 at 2 p.m. in London, at Holy Trinity Anglican Church, 245 King Edward Avenue. The family asks that, in lieu of flowers, donations kindly be sent to the Hamilton Regional Cancer Centre Foundation, 699 Concession St., Hamilton, Ont., L8V 5C2, or call 905-575-6363.
Kate is with the angels now.
