web_Hart_HowardJuly 12, 1930 – July 27, 2016
With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Howard Hart. Surrounded by family, Howard passed away peacefully at the very caring Sunrise Senior Living in Windsor Ontario.
Howard, son of Alice and William Hart of Belleville Ontario, will be deeply missed by his beloved  wife of 61 years Diane and his 4 children Bill and Mirjana Hart (Rome),  Peter and Sylvia Hart (Vancouver) , Suzanne and Greg Salmon (Michigan) and Cary and Patrick Scully (North Carolina). Howard will be greatly missed by his 10 grandchildren, Adam, Charlie and Dominique Hart, Christopher and Simone Hart, Christina, Calloway and Trent Salmon, and Alexis and Ryan Scully, his many old friends in Montreal, around the globe and his new friends at the Amica of Windsor.
Howard traveled the world and cherished all the incredible people he made lifelong friendships with.  Howard graduated from Queen’s University then moved to Montreal, later becoming the President of the Canadian Pulp and Paper Association. Howard was awarded many awards during his career, including the “Order of the Lion” from Finland and the “Royal Order of the Polar Star” from Sweden for his dedication and strong personal contributions to the forest industry.  He donated his time and expertise to the Montreal General Hospital where he was a board member for many years.
Howard was an avid outdoorsman who captained Jolly Boat Races on the St. Lawrence River. Howard was courageous enough to venture to Switzerland with Diane and their four young children to ski the Swiss Alps. He played tennis well into his 70’s and organized many rugged canoe trips through Quebec and down the Nahanni River with his sons and special friends.
In his later years, Howard’s greatest passion was to witness all of his grandchildren work hard and receive an excellent education. Howard could often be heard asking them about their current education and what they were planning to do next. The family will hold a private memorial at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please pass on an act of kindness in his memory. Arrangements entrusted to FAMILIES FIRST 1065 LAUZON RD. East Windsor, 519-969-5841.

HERTEL, Mark

On Friday, July 15, Mark packed up the truck and trailer and left for Missinaibi Provincial Park, Ontario, to set-up camp and join friends for three weeks of glorious fishing.  His wife of 30 years, Lorraine Bortolin, was flying into Sault Sainte Marie, Michigan on Sunday July 24, where he would pick her up at the airport and make the seven hour trip back to northern Ontario to spend two more weeks vacationing.  It was in Sault Sainte Marie, Michigan, that Mark became ill and passed away.  He was, however, able to spend one week enjoying what he loved second best and that was spending time in Missinaibi with great friends, great fishing and delicious fish fries.  Mark and Lorraine have two children, Jaclyn and Zachary, who will dearly miss their father.  Mark was also nonno to his grand puppy, Ruby.  Lovingly remembered by sisters, Carol Ann and husband Jorge Geaga (Los Angeles), Mary (Mississauga), sisters-in-law Elaine (Doug) and Jean (Joe), in-laws Louise and Gus Brun and Angelina Bortolin, as well as his nieces and nephews and their families.   He is predeceased by his parents Melville (1992) and Frances (1994), and brothers Doug (2002) and Joe (2005).  Mark’s first love was his motorcycle and riding in the open air, free as a bird.  It had always been a joke that if he had to choose between the bike and his wife Lorraine, she could come along for the ride.  His life was a great bike ride, which was at times, filled with bumps in the road which were overcome only to make the ride more adventurous and enjoyable.  Over the years, Mark raised thousands of dollars in the Ride for Sight.  His dream was to ride to Alaska; a dream that unfortunately will not come true.  If you so desire, donations to Community Living Essex County or The Foundation Fighting Blindness- Canada (Ride for Sight) would be appreciated by the family.  Visitation Thursday 3:00-5:00 p.m. and 7:00-9:00 p.m. Funeral Service Friday at 11:30 a.m. at Families First, 585 Sandwich Street South, Amherstburg (519-969-5841).  Cremation to follow.  Share memories, photos or make a donation at www.FamiliesFirst.ca

P.S. I’m doing dishes tonight Marconi.
