VIDLER, Hartley Robert, Erieau, ON

Posted by on July 28, 2014

Vidler, Hartley paperVIDLER, Hartley Robert, a resident of Erieau, passed away peacefully at his residence with his devoted daughter Connie Vidler by his side on Sunday, July 27, 2014 at the age of 83. Beloved husband to the late Mary Lou (2007). Loving father of the sunshine in his life, Connie Vidler (Dan Thomas) of Erieau and the late Robert ‘Bob’ Vidler (1973). Cherished grandfather of Robert Demeurichy (Sarah), Richard Demeurichy (Mark), Ryan Demeurichy (Amy), Lori Turner and Chris Thomas. Dear great-grandfather of Deacon and Declan ‘Charlie’ Demeurichy, Taylor and Luke Turner, and Daisy Wood. Predeceased by his brothers John, OJ and George Vidler. Hartley will be dearly missed by his loving sister Mary Remington and his best buddy and travelling companion, Gordon McCormick. Hartley was committed to this tiny fishing village. His heart and soul was Erieau. His love for Erieau could be seen on his license plate. He was an Entrepreneur, Council Member from 1970-1975, School Board, Cub and Sea Scout Master, Sertoma Club President, Erieau Fireman, Search & Rescue, Coast Guard Auxiliary, First Rescue Unit Established out of Erieau with the Bobby V, Chartered President, Erieau Ice Company. He was the owner and operator of the Erieau Packers, Erieau Marina and President of Erieau Lands. Hartley was a loving husband and father that saw that his family was well taken care of and he did this all on a grade eight education. With all his credentials, Hartley was very down to earth, humble, and had a great sense of humour that showed through the poems he wrote. He always had a smile on his face and a kind word to say. As a boss, he never expected his employees to do anything he wouldn’t do and would work side by side until all the fish were packed. He would rather be in the background doing and giving, rather in the forefront receiving accolades. Hartley left a book with instructions that read “Keep it short, I hate long goodbyes!” and on the last page, “Hey! This is the last funeral I am going to!” He’s a guy who liked radish sandwiches, fishing, his family, and was always looking for a bargain and considered it a splurge to buy a new pair of shoes over $20. Perhaps there is a little “Hartley” in all of us. Family to receive friends at the Funeral Home, 141 Park St, Blenheim, Wednesday, July 30, 2014, from 2:00-4:00 & 7:00-9:00 p.m. A Funeral Service will be held at the Funeral Home, on Thursday, July 31, 2014, at 11:00 a.m. with Rev. Tim Joyce officiating. Interment to follow in Evergreen Cemetery, Blenheim. In Lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Hartley to the Erieau Fire Department, St. Paul’s Anglican Church and Word of Life Church-Blenheim, would be greatly appreciated by the family.

ZAKOOR, Fr. Frederick John C.S.B.

Posted by on July 27, 2014

Born October 21, 1929. He was ordained on the Feast of Sts. Peter and Paul on June 29, 1958. A Basilian priest his ministry was in Education, both as a Teacher and an Administrator. He taught Religion, Physics, Canadian History and Mathematics at various Basilian High Schools: Catholic Central in Detroit, St. Mary’s College in Sault St. Marie, Aquinas Institute in Rochester NY and Assumption College School in Windsor. In 1967 he became Vice-Principal at ACS. For two years he prepared for the merging of St. Mary’s Academy. He supervised the planning and construction of an addition to accommodate an increase of population. In 1971, he moved to Michael Power High School in Toronto and taught Mathematics for nine years. He was instrumental in establishing a new department, Campus Ministry. During those years he spent three summers teaching Administration to Principals in St. Vincent Island and Kano, Nigeria. In 1980, he returned to Windsor to be Principal of F.J Brennan High School. It took 3 years to get the school financially solvent and to restore curriculum and discipline to where a school should be according to the Ministry. In 1982 Brennan developed a basic level four year program for students who could never go to a Catholic private school and graduate in an Academic program. He established bursaries for students who could not stay in the Catholic schools because of tuition. In 1985 full funding had begun and the financial concerns were over. With the new Catholic High School Board they were able to grow from two schools to five in the next four years. In 1989 he was appointed founding Principal of the fifth high school, St. Joseph’s. The first Fr. Zakoor Catholic Cup started in December 1984. On the last day of school before Christmas, the Brennan High School and St. Joe’s Hockey Teams play for the Cup. More than 1100 people, including a large number of alumni from both schools make it a tradition. “Starting the day with Mass gave me my strength. To pray with staff and students was a JOY” (Fr. Fred). In 1995 he retired from Education. Fr. Fred is survived by his sisters Gladys Howe and Louise Shaway, seven nieces and nephews along with fifteen great nieces and nephews and many friends. He was predeceased by his parents, James and Najla Zakoor, brother Edward and great niece Aubrey. Special thanks to Barbara Gambriel for your care and compassion. If you so desire, donations to the Basilian Father’s Mission would be appreciated by the family. Visitation Tuesday 3pm-9pm at Families First 3260 Dougall Ave. South Windsor, 519-969-5841. On Wednesday, friends are invited to join the family after 1pm at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church (834 Raymo Rd.) followed by Mass of Christian Burial at 2pm.
