MICHALEWSKI, Alex of Sarnia

Posted by on February 25, 2019

Alexander Olivian Michalewski – Born October 4, 1922, passed away peacefully with family by his side in the early morning hour of February 23, 2019 at the age of 96. He is survived by daughter Kathryn Lynett (John), son Michael, granddaughter Shannon (Todd), great-granddaughter D’Anna, great grandson Jacob.  Predeceased by his wife Velma (nee Joyce) 1992, and Virginia (2000), son James Alexander (1957), daughter Karen (1998) and parents Emilia (nee Genga) and Leon. In November 1927, Alex and his mother joined his father in Kirkland Lake where he attended primary and secondary schools.  He was a veteran of WWII.  After the war ended, he visited his parents who had relocated to Sarnia, loved it and stayed, meeting Velma and marrying in 1953.  He worked at Sarnia Bridge and then the Sarnia Public Library from which he retired after 27 years of service.  He was a long time member of Central United Church from 1953 – 2009 when he joined Paterson Memorial Church. He took up shuffleboard at the age of 95 at the Strangway Centre and was enjoying that weekly activity and the company of the most welcoming friends he had made there.  He was also a member of several Tim Horton’s coffee groups over the years, who would gather most afternoons.  He loved attending Sunday night dances at the Bridge Tavern and following that, the Navy Club and Bluewater Hall where he and his dance partner Solange would kick up their heels.  His love of walking, music, dancing, reading, photography, conversation and people in general were what attributed to his longevity we’re sure. The family would like to thank all of those who supported him in his final years – Paterson Church members who made sure he always had a ride home from church, with a special mention to Don and Grace for in addition to that, often took him along to the Open Grill for Sunday brunches, Halina for always keeping him company in the pew when she accompanied Paul (Director of Music) who Dad looked forward to conversing with each week, about music no doubt, Pastor Allan for his support to both Alex and his family especially during times of his recent illnesses and hospital stays, Bob and Wendy who picked him up almost every single day to take him for coffee at Tim Horton’s on Colborne Road,  his VON friendly visitor Nirav for his weekly visits and friendship, neighbour Marc who so generously took care of his grass cutting and yardwork  for many years, the Telecheck members for their nightly calls, the Red Cross Homeward Bound program and Meals On Wheels team, Care Partners staff, the kind and caring staff in Palliative Care at Bluewater Health, and so many other friends, and friends of family who supported him over the years.  Visitation will be held Friday, March 1, 2019 from 3:30 pm – 7:30 pm. at the D. J. Robb Funeral Home & Cremation Centre Ltd. (102 Victoria St. N., Sarnia). Funeral services will be held at the funeral home on Saturday, March 2, 2019 at 11:00 am. Interment will follow at Lakeview Cemetery. Sympathy may be expressed through donations to Paterson Memorial Church, Cat Chance, or a charity of your choice (cheques only at the funeral home please).

He also took great pride in countless renovation and handyman projects. Luc loved playing golf and was a longstanding member of the Sarnia Golf and Curling Club. He met many great golf buddies over the years who nicknamed him Frenchie. Saying he enjoyed the culinary delights of McDonald’s double cheeseburgers, cooled down black coffee and squeaky cheese would be an understatement. Dad kept us all up to date on the sport scores with priority to PGA golf tournaments and his Montreal Canadiens (win or lose). He will forever entertain us with concert melodies from his Yamaha keyboard. The family is greatly appreciative of Dr. Crombeen, Dr. Maddison and the staff & volunteers of St. Joseph’s Hospice for their abundance of compassionate care and friendship during his extended stay.

HODGSON, Dean Joseph of Sarnia

Posted by on December 13, 2018

HODGSON, DEAN: Dean Joseph Hodgson was born in the Sarnia General Hospital, the son of Jack M. and Blanche (Rollins) Hodgson on August 7th, 1933 and passed away on December 12th, 2018. Dean considered himself the Maple Leafs #1 fan. He also closely followed the Blue Jays, Lions and Tigers. Dean loved to skate and did so into his 80’s, walk, read and debate (about anything). Agriculture was his vocation and he farmed his own land from 1960 – 1990 but continued his interest in agriculture and drainage, especially Lambton County and the Rainy River District to the very end.

As a young man Dean worked with Marshall and Milway, Ontario Land Surveyors and felt the basics he learned in those years guided him through the many pursuits he followed in the rest of his life. Dean was involved in farm drainage for over 40 years (1962 – 2004) as an owner, operator and drainage inspector. Draining the land and solving problems was a passion. Farming, drainage and friendly people were the focus of his life and he attempted to enjoy every minute of every day. Dean always enjoyed the simpler things in life and so, as he said, “luckily never required much money”, though he never married he was always happy with whatever he had. Some of his happiest years (and toughest) were spent on his Emo cattle farm in the Rainy River District between 1978 and 1990 while paying 22% interest. At Emo he also served as municipal Drainage Superintendent for eight municipalities and enjoyed working with Councils and farm groups. Dean was also involved with Emo minor hockey for several years. During these years in the Rainy River District he often said he worked with, “some of the finest people in the world” who made even the cattle business seem enjoyable.

In his later years he was the author of several small books on Lambton County history. He considered himself an amateur historian and was a member of the Lambton County Historical Society for several years and the recently formed Sarnia Historical Society.

Dean was predeceased by his parents Jack (1974) and Blanche (1987), brother-in-law Ray Tomlin (2000), his brother John Hodgson (2012) and sister Donna Hodgson (2018). He is survived by two sisters Della Tomlin of Sarnia and Judith and her husband Geoff Sutherland of Kelowna, BC. He is also survived by Shelley, David and Dean Sutherland along with several other nieces and nephews.
