KOMSA, Nathan Marc

Posted by on November 14, 2017

It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that we share the news that Nathan Marc Komsa has passed away, suddenly on November 11, 2017. Cherished son of Martin & Janis Komsa, and Christine & Gerry Adams. Much loved brother of Matthew & Shanna, and Christian & Kathryn. Devoted Uncle of Mason, Meadow, Skye, Chase and Charlie. Dear grandson of Mabel Beard and predeceased by John & Rose Komsa, Charlie & Hetty MacPhee. Loving nephew of Bob & Nancy Kates (Komsa), Paul Wishak & Susan Colwell, Mary Jane Vallee (the late Brian), David MacPhee (the late Linda), Julie & Glenn Dick, Nancy Beard (the late Blake), and the late Keith Beard. Sadly missed by his cousins; Kendra, Katelyn, Tee, Adam, Andrea, Erica, Christopher, Erin, Rylan, Chad, Tyler, Corey, Charlie, Ian, Keri, Adam, Jessica, Andrew, Kellie, Kevin and especially Aaron AKA “the other brother” and his canine companions “Champdog” and “Cypress”. He will be lovingly remembered by many friends. Nathan was an avid baseball player and studied the sport with his favourite team being the Toronto Blue Jays. He was on a golf scholarship for 4 years at Youngstown State in Youngstown, Ohio. A highlight of his college career was winning the Horizon League Conference Championship.  Later, he was a champion amateur golfer recognized throughout Canada after winning the Ontario Mid-Amateur Championship. Within Essex County, Nathan won numerous golf tournaments over the years far too many to mention. His name will always be synonymous with the many charity golf tournaments that he participated in and won with his 3 favourite golfers (Dad, Christian and Christopher Matis). Nathan was a member at Essex Golf & Country Club where he actively participated in club events and was known for his 300 + yard drives. He holds the family title of most Hole in Ones (4). Certainly playing Pebble Beach Golf Course is something that will never be forgotten, a piece of you will always be there. Congratulations Nathan, one last time, on your golfing accomplishments. Not a fall Sunday could go by without Nathan being fixated on watching his favourite Dallas Cowboys attempt to win yet another championship. Much to the chagrin of his brothers, (mostly Matt) on a regular basis, Dallas would beat the Detroit Lions. He was a voracious reader who had a passion for learning and expanding his knowledge. He was not someone you wanted to debate because he knew so much about so many things. Nathan you will be forever missed and we will always have a chair for you at our family gatherings.  We will say your name and smile, hear your songs and laugh, feel your life and love. If you so desire, donations to W.E. Care for Kids would be appreciated by the family. Visiting on Wednesday 2-9 pm at Families First, 3260 Dougall Ave., South Windsor (519-969-5841). Cremation to follow. Share memories, photos or make a donation at www.FamiliesFirst.ca

MUSGROVE, Edward “Ted”

Posted by on November 10, 2017

It’s hard to say good-bye to our beloved Ted who was an amazing son, grandson, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin and friend. We remember his kindness, sense of humour, generosity and intelligence. As a child he was very active in many recreational sports including hockey, skiing and baseball. He was a talented athlete and played high school football and tennis. Following high school, Ted attended the University of Western Ontario and graduated in 2001 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology.

After graduating, Ted worked and travelled for a year in Australia and spent time in England. Ted had a love of the outdoors, and electronic music. He could always be counted on to lend a helping hand with yard work and household projects. Ted was always very good at working with his hands and he went on to become an entrepreneur. He ran a successful landscaping business in the Windsor area for a number of years until he suffered a life altering back injury.

Despite having so much going for him, Ted faced a number of struggles. He fought a very difficult battle against addiction and won. We were very proud of him. Unfortunately, he continued to struggle with serious mental and physical health problems and, in the end, this battle proved to be too much for him.

Ted will be deeply missed and forever remembered by his loving family and friends. If love alone could have saved Ted, he’d be with us today.
