Barry was a devoted, patient and loving husband to Gale. He will be remembered as an amazing and engaged Dad. He coached teams, terrified boyfriends, and was a protector like no other. Barry was also a proud and loving Grandpa and valued any and all time he got to spend with his grandchildren.

Barry was a collector, a historian, a sports fan, a lover of a good bonfire and a great joke. He had the heart of a warrior and the spirit of a poet. He will be deeply missed by his friends, family and all who knew him.

Obituary of Blake; William(Bill) Ernest of Peace River, AB and Durham, ON resting at Fawcett Funeral Cremation Reception, Flesherton

William Blake resting at Fawcett Funeral Cremation Reception, Flesherton

William (Bill) Ernest Blake, age 85, of Peace River, Alberta and Durham, Ontario, passed away peacefully Oct 30th, 2018, at the Grey Gables retirement home in Markdale, Ontario.

Born on August 26, 1933, in Peace River, Alberta, Bill was the eldest son of the late Ernest Blake and Marjorie Millicent Blake/Furgeson (Jerry Furgeson) of Peace River, AB.

He is survived by his loving wife of 18 years, Mary Blake (nee Leith); his brother Duncan Blake; sister Linda Longmuir (Denis); brother Gordon Furgeson (Vickie); sister Ada Vanderheide (Rick); his four children; Chris Blake (Bill) of Grande Prairie, AB; Marj Blake-Callinan (Tom) of Mill Valley CA, USA; Willie Blake (Arlene) of Calgary, AB; Wes Blake of Rainbow Lake, AB; his six grandchildren, Carmen (Blair), Jody, Ryan (Sarah), Jocelyn, Connor, Montana; his six great grandchildren; Dartanian, Ethan, Darius, Olivia, Asher, Daxton; and his brother in-law Doug (Carolyn) Leith; and many loving nieces, nephews, relatives and extended family of Ontario.

Raised on a farm in the Weberville area outside Peace River, Alberta, Bill left home at the age of 15 and became a plumber and pipefitter. Inspired by his entire family’s fascination with airplanes and aviation in general, he purchased an airplane and learned how to fly.  Early on he flew the Cessna Crane or the “Bamboo Bomber” as he used to refer to it. After starting his professional career bush-piloting float planes, he was sure he had made the big time piloting the legendary DC3 with Gateway Aviation. He was hired by Pacific Western Airlines (PWA) in 1965, and in 1969, he was rated on the Lockheed L382 Hercules. This time in his aviation career allowed him to see the world as the “Tramp Steamer” flew freight from the high north of the Canadian Arctic, to the Deserts of Saudi Arabia and to the depths of the South American jungle in Brazil. His career with his initial Jet aircraft rating on the brand new “Boeing 737” in 1972. The high point of his 737 flying was the introduction of Jet service into Peace River on September 15, 1975. He was the Captain on the first B737 aircraft into Peace River, AB and ultimately piloted the last B737 flight out of the Peace River airport in 1983 when Canadian Airlines discontinued jet service there.  He retired early from Canadian Airlines flying the DC-10 at the age of 57 to pursue his second career as a grain farmer in Peace River. His passion for flying never left him and was shared with other family members; his step-father, his two brothers and both of his sons all became pilots and some owing private aircraft.

Bill was an avid and entertaining story teller, adventuresome traveler who literally “saw” the world, a hard working “hobby-farmer” (controlling over 2.5 sections of land at one time), owner of a trucking company (Captain Tractors), partner in a regional airline (Southern Frontier Air Transport), and a loving husband and father; he will be missed dearly.

Our family wishes to extend a special and sincere thank you to all of the staff at Grey Gables in Markdale, ON for their attentive care and support over the last few years and especially during Bill’s final days. The family also extends their sincerest gratitude to Fawcett Funeral and Cremation Reception center.

The family will be receiving all of Bill’s friends from 10am at St. Andrews Presbyterian Church in Priceville, ON; Saturday, Nov 3rd until the service at 11am with lunch to follow. Bill’s final resting place will be amongst his close relatives in the Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Peace River, Alberta Nov 7, 2018 at 1pm.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to the Day Away Program-Home and Community Support Services of Grey-Bruce would be greatly appreciated.Online donations and condolences at 888-924-2810

Don was born in Morden, Manitoba to Alfred Woodward McIntyre and Isabel Valentine McIntyre (nee Macey). He grew up on the border where his father worked.

Don and Dorothy’s lives were characterized by the friends they made in every decade and every community where they lived. Don still kept in contact with his university fraternity friends, the couples they regularly gathered with in Edmonton and all the friends he made in churches and business throughout the years. 

Don considered himself the most fortunate of men, blessed with 56 years of love with his wonderful wife, Dorothy and another couple of years of love with Myrna Huggan, his dear partner for the last years of his life, with Myrna visiting him every day as Don spent his last days in the hospital and finally the hospice.

Obituary of BUXTON, Frank of Calgary, Alberta

Posted by on October 4, 2018

May 11th, 1958 – August 3rd, 2018

It is with heavy hearts that the family of Frank Brent Buxton announces his passing at the age of 60, on August 3, 2018. Frank will be deeply missed by his beloved wife of 40 years Debbie; their three children Heather, Brad, and Russell; and his two brothers, Bert and Rob. Frank was pre-deceased by his parents; mother Myrtle “Pat” (Langen) Buxton, and father Frank Buxton who passed a year ago almost to the day of his son.

Frank was born of a generation that took great pride in their vocation. He was dedicated to his work and felt it very much identified him. He worked at Bow Valley Square for 33 years working his way up to Chief Engineer. Frank was gifted not only with a great work ethic but was also mechanically minded, and handy around the house fixing up odds and ends including the family vehicles. He also spent much time on his lawn meticulously watering it, leaving behind only the straightest mowing strips and perfect trimming. His yard was the envy of the neighbourhood and likely many golf courses too.

Frank played as hard as he worked and was a passionate athlete. He actively fostered this love of sports with his children and took turns coaching each of them. He coached the boy’s baseball and hockey teams, and his daughter in softball. He played organized hockey since he was a teenager. He played in an old-timers league for years as a member of the “Raiders” and most recently for the “Flaming As”. Frank always wore the number 9 (and so did his daughter). Although he loved the game of hockey, he had a lifelong passion with the sport of golf, which started in his youth when he and his friends would hop over fences to secretly play endless free rounds. Monday nights were reserved for the Men’s Night at Blue Devil Golf Course; however, his wife was his usual partner. Despite all this time on the rinks and greens Frank also managed to train for and race in 3 marathons with his wife.

It is difficult to convey in a few short lines just how much Frank was loved and how deeply he will be missed, the indelible stamp he has left on the lives of those near and dear to him, and the void he leaves behind.

Celebration of Life will be held at Carnmoney Golf Club (44001 Dunbow Road East, DeWinton, Alberta T1S 4X7) on Saturday, October 13, 2018 from 2:00 – 6:00 p.m. Please join Frank’s family for some food and drink (including cold cans of Canadian) to remember him. You are encouraged to share any photos or stories you might have.
