Eighteen years ago Calvin was diagnosed with a rare disease now known as Fabry Disease and 15 years ago recieved the “Gift of Life” via Kidney Transplant. Calvin lived life to the fullest. He felt that one should never sit around and take life for granted and so he spent every minute in the outdoors believing that “anything that could be done in the morning should not be left for the evening.” Unable to do anything about the disease, that was taking control of his body he kept control of his life by keeping a massive vegetable garden, berry picking, cutting his firewood, and hunting when his fishing season was done. In the fall of 2000 Calvin participated during the filming of an outdoor video with C. Michael Cooley and Lee Lieburn, from the Sportsman Channel, who filmed the annual migration of the Woodland Caribou on the Flat Hills near Parson’s Pond, NL as well as a local Moose Hunt. This film aired on TV in all fifty States! He was an employee of Kruger, as a Wood Cutter, for many years. Calvin enriched the lives of many who knew him through his knowledge gained by his personal experiences.

Wisdom cannot reveal itself,
Art cannot become manifest,

Wealth becomes useless,
And reason is powerless.

Life is but a stopping place,
A pause in what's to be,
A resting place along the road,
To sweet eternity.
We all have different journeys,
Different paths along the way,
We all were meant to
learn some things,
But never meant to stay...
Our destination is a place,
Far greater than we know,
For some the journey's quicker,
For some the journey's slow.
And when the journey finally ends,
We'll claim a great reward,
And find an everlasting peace,
Together with the Lord

TUMA, Elias Simon
Corner Brook, NL
Elias Simon Tuma
, born on Belle Island, Newfoundland, January 20, 1910. Passed peacefully at Western Memorial Regional Hospital on June 29, 2008, after a brief illness, he was 98 years old. He is survived by his son Jeff and daughter-in-law Eileen (nee Lewis), his son Corey, his sister Nora Alteen, his niece Judy Neville (nee Alteen), brother Jim and numerous nieces and nephews. Elias was predeceased by his much loved wife Wadea and his beloved grand-daughter Danielle. Elias was born on Belle Island and the family moved to Corner Brook in 1921.They were among the first to witness the pulp and paper being built. In 1937 Elias moved back to Belle Island as the mines were in full swing due to the demands of the Second World War. He set up shop with $1.75, a great deal of ambition, a keen business sense and the talent of a fine jeweller and watch maker. After a few years he moved to Stephenville and opened up a shop there. His father passed away in 1944 and he took over the family business, S.E. Tuma Ltd in Corner Brook. In 1945 he married Wadea Kouri and enjoyed 59 years of marriage before her passing. His son Jeff came along in 1968 and Corey in 1970. His family prided him as a good father and husband. As business improved and grew over the years so did the number of friends and colleagues that he established a lifelong relationship with. His reputation as a fair and honest business man earned him the respect of fisherman in the tiny outports of Newfoundland to Premieres of the Province. Outside of working exceedingly long hours each day, he had many interests. Of all of his interests, hockey was an enjoyment to him his whole life. He was the treasurer for the Corner Brook Royals in the late 60's and was inducted into the Nfld. and Labrador Hockey Hall of Fame for years of outstanding support. He was well travelled, self taught and had an appetite for knowledge; he had a keen interest in all subjects and cited geography as one of his hobbies. It wasn’t until 2005, well beyond the age that most retire, that he finally closed up shop and retired to Lark Harbour at the Guardian Angels Nursing Home to enjoy some well deserved relaxation. Elias will be greatly missed by his family and many friends. A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, July 29th at 2:00 p.m. from St. John the Evangelist Anglican Cathedral, followed by burial at the Townsite Cemetery, Montgomery Street. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the Guardian Angels Nursing Home in Lark Harbour. Funeral arrangements entrusted to Fillatre's Funeral Home.
