Pallbearers were Jordan Dwyer, Christopher Johnston, Gerald Feltham, Ted Budden, Graham Norman and Fred Pardy. Anyone who knew Gerry couldn't help but admire his love of music, hunting and fishing. As an avid hockey player, he was very proud of his career playing with the Corner Brook Royals in the '50s and '60s where he earned the nickname "The Rocket" due to a similar playing style as NHL great Maurice Richard and scoring a goal against another NHL great Terry Sawchuk. After retiring from All-Nfld. hockey he led numerous Lewisporte senior hockey teams as a player/coach to numerous great seasons. He capped his hockey career being able to play on the same team as his son, Jerry. One of his most memorable highlights in later years and during the onset of his battle with Alzheimer's was when he was able to coach young players in the local minor hockey association in Lewisporte. Gerry was employed with CN Railway as a station agent at Notre Dame Junction until his retirement in March of 1984, with 35 years of service and later as a guard with the RCMP.
He will be deeply missed by his family, and friends who lovingly called him, Pop Dwyer.

Funeral Mass was held from St. Patrick's Church, St. John's, on Wednesday, January 16, 2013. The mass was a beautiful and sad event ... the church was full -- family, friends, Aliant co-workers from across the province and cadets. The funeral home was full of people saddened and shocked by Sean's death. We have heard so many stories of Sean's smile all the time, his ability to do anything, his willingness to help friends and co-workers any time, his love of Deanne, Luke and Nicole and what a good father, leader, husband, son and role model he was with a sense of adventure, fun, spirituality and service. He was truly, as Hedley Smith put it ..."a shining light". We saw amazing pictures of Harley Davidsons and snowmobiles and concerts with Deanne and couple friends and listened and danced to ACDC and so much other music he loved. At the reception following the funeral mass at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 56, Pleasantville, Sean was recognized by the Canadian Forces and sea cadets. Back in Corner Brook on Friday afternoon in Palliative Care at the Western Memorial Regional Hospital, we remembered Sean with prayer and celebration with mother Madge, and local family. We got to know so much about Sean in the days since his death. Our hearts ache for Deanne, Luke and Nicole and all those whom he touched. His impact was far-reaching and he will be sorely missed, remembered and celebrated always. Many thanks to all those who shared stories, condolences and time as well as donations and flowers. Donations in his memory may be made to Royal Canadian Legion Branch 56, the Canadian Mental Health Association, NL or Heart and Stroke Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador.

He was well known to the legal community as he was always available to the RCMP and court system as a Justice of the Peace. Residents of Colonial Avenue were used to seeing an RCMP vehicle in his driveway. Donald was a master storyteller and always laughed along with the listener at his own stories. Deeply rooted in family, he was always interested in the education and accomplishments of his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Self-described as the "Jack Benny of Stephenville", he was in fact, generous to a fault. Resting at Russell's Funeral Home, Stephenville. Visitation to take place on Sunday, January 6th from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. Funeral mass to take place on Monday, January 7th at 10:00 a.m. at St. Stephen's Church. Donations may be made to the charity of one's choice.
He was a man. Take him for all in all.
I shall not look upon his like again.
