FARNDALE, Raymond William Stainthorpe
Born: February 23rd, 1914
Passed on: May 23rd, 2016
CD

Ray enjoyed a long and fulfilling life. Beginning Feb 23, 1914, in St John's and then Corner Brook, Newfoundland and living most of his life in Halifax, Nova Scotia, he peacefully passed away on May 23, 2016, in Guelph, Ontario, his new-found home. Ray, a true gentleman, was kind and generous of spirit. He was passionate about inclusion, notably those with special or medical needs and those marginalized by poverty or life circumstances. He adopted many local and international causes, always adapting with the times. He loved his Blue Jays, mystery novels, choir singing, politics, good jokes and live music. A life-long learner, he conquered the computer and worked well into his 90's, as an accountant. He always enjoyed "doing his books", gardening, walking, swimming, skating, ballroom dancing and amateur acting. While a man of few words, he demonstrated deep emotion and always had a twinkle in his eye. Ray was a proud veteran of World War II, serving as Lieutenant in the 23rd Battery of the 59th Regiment of Royal Artillery and was awarded the Canadian Forces Decoration (CD). He was a devoted husband to Ellie Tipple, with whom he shared many adventures, until her passing in 2010. He was a dear father to Keith (Sue) Farndale and Denise (Jack) Watson and was a special Poppy to Emily and Christopher Watson and granddog Molly, who adored him. Ray was predeceased by his British parents John and Bessie, and his younger brother Bertram. He was a loyal friend to many and had strong relationships, most recently with those at Wellington Park Retirement Residence. All who knew Ray agree that his teachers and peers got it right when they awarded him the Knowling Scholarship numerous times, as "Best All Round Boy"! To honour his wishes, cremation and a private memorial will be held. Arrangements entrusted to the Wall-Custance Funeral Home & Chapel. Memories can be shared at www.wallcustance.com. If desired, expressions of sympathy can be made through a donation to KidsAbility Centre for Child Development at www.kidsability.ca to support Poppy's kids.

Born: September 14th, 1962
Passed on: May 20th, 2016

Passed away May 20, 2016 at Sir Thomas Roddick Hospital in Stephenville in his 53rd year. Steve was born in St. John's on September 14, 1962 and grew up mainly in Stephenville, graduating from Stephenville Integrated High School in 1979. He attended Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, Memorial University and Westviking College, before eventually moving to Southern California in 1989 where he worked within various aspects of the motion picture industry. He had an encyclopaedic knowledge of movies, directors and actors. In 2012 he returned to Newfoundland to pursue a dream of becoming a Visual Artist. Unfortunately cancer prevented this dream from becoming a reality. His wide circle of friends and family will greatly miss his ready wit, his talent for drawing, music, and acting and his impromptu imitations of well known singers and movie stars, many of whom he had met personally. Steve especially enjoyed sharing his knowledge of art and music with the younger members of his family, cultivating a new generation of musicians and artists. He is survived by his partner and friend, Judi Gale; his mother Juanita Davis (Derek) and father Douglas Fowlow (Georgina); his sister Susan; brothers Jamie (Renee) and Sandy (Sandra); four nieces Davis, Sadie, Ellie May, and Julia; two nephews Colin and Owen; and a large number of aunts, uncles and cousins, as well as three step-daughters Jennifer, Joanna and Jessie in California. At his request cremation has taken place and there will be no visitation or memorial service. His ashes will be interred at a private family gathering at a future date.
