Obituary of 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.

Obituary of COLES: Dr. Robert Ellis of Calgary, Alberta

Posted by on December 9, 2018

 

“Mamas don’t let your babies grow up to be cowboys….let ‘em be doctors and lawyers and such”.  But, what if your baby is a doctor AND a cowboy??

The passing of Dr. Robert Ellis Coles on November 26, 2018 is announced by his daughter Christine Coles (her husband Dave and their daughter Phoenix), his daughter Melissa Flynn (her daughters Cypris and Jordis), his son Jonathan Coles (his wife Jessica, their daughters Andrew and Sawyer and son Jeven) and their brother Joshua Coles.

Robert, aka Bob/Doc, was born an only child at the Norfolk General Hospital in Simcoe, Ontario on March 17, 1946.  He is survived by many cousins, including Dale Coles who was like a brother growing up.  He is predeceased by his father Henry Ellis Coles (January 1, 1923 Port Dover, Ontario – April 16, 2008 Calgary, Alberta), his mother Edith (Albert) Coles (March 6, 1920 Moosehorn, Manitoba – March 12, 2009 Calgary, Alberta), his maternal grandparents Fred Albert and Christina Margaret Aitken and paternal grandparents Charles Elgin Coles and Ethel Charlton.

Bob grew up in Port Rowan, Norfolk County, moving to Cambridge (Galt), Ontario in 1957. His father Henry Coles served in WWII as sergeant in B Company of the Royal Canadian Army Service Corps in charge of radiator and tinsmith division of the vehicle maintenance crews from 1942-1946.  Henry then went on to established North End Radiator Service in 1959.   Safe to say this was the birth place of Bob’s lifelong love affair with cars, especially Corvettes (although his first car was a robin blue convertible 1955 Cadillac). 

After graduating with honours from Galt Collegiate Institute and Vocational School in 1965 (where he pitched for the baseball team, was on the basketball team, student council and many other activities), he was accepted to the College of Optometry of Ontario in Toronto.  In 1967 the school moved to Waterloo and became the University of Waterloo School of Optometry, where he continued his studies.

After four years of dating through school, Bob (age 22) married Gisela Oehne (age 20) of Preston, Ontario in June 1968. Bob graduated May 1969 with a Doctor of Optometry (OD) degree. Together Bob and Gisela set up his first practice after graduation at 111 Wellington Street in Preston, Ontario.  

‘Go West Young Man’.  And so he did…  They sold their practice and moved to Calgary, Alberta in July 1972 to join Dr. Garth Mann at the Bonavista Eye Clinic.  Staying at the then Siesta Inn for this first trip, Bob wandered next door to check out Ranchman’s Cookhouse and Dancehall, which had just opened months prior in April 1972.  It is then and there a friendship with Harris Dvorkin, one of the two Ranchman’s co-founders, was forged. Bob’s love of a Wild West country lifestyle and his entrepreneurial spirit soon made this not only his Calgary Stampede home base, but an office of sorts through his career.  (Mr. Dvorkin passed on April 20, 2017- just one week before Ranchman’s 45th anniversary). 

Bob and Gisela’s first daughter Christine Anne arrived in 1973, their second daughter Melissa Marie in 1975 and first son Jonathan Robert in 1977.  Bob and Gisela were divorced in 1979. 

Gone their separate ways, Gisela brought Joshua in to the world in 1982. Giving him the Coles name, he became one of the four “Coles Kids”.  Bob moved to Phoenix, Arizona from 1983 to 1987 with his second wife Carol and her teenage children Janet and Mark.  Returning to Calgary, Bob and Carol were separated in the early 90s and later divorced.  

Bob lived the rest of his years with his Good Hearted Woman, life and business partner Linda Babuik.  They made many memories of shared interests such as travel (favourites included Hawaii and Las Vegas), country music concerts, rodeos (including of course The Stampede but especially the NFR in Vegas) and their camp ‘homestead’ at Riverbend in Okotoks.  Linda’s daughters Tricia and Keri, together with Keri’s husband Jim and their children Trevor and Taylor (and Taylor’s son Sawyer), added greatly to the support and memories throughout these years. 

His children wish to remember him as the smart witted, extremely intelligent, entrepreneurial, musically talented and charismatic person he was. He was an avid car fan, having owned more than two dozen Corvettes over his lifetime and no stranger to twisting a wrench here or there. He was musically inclined, playing guitar, banjo and singing. He was a quick wit and at times a prankster.  He had a love for snakeskin cowboy boots, fishing (including Ice fishing), Disneyland, Canadian Tire, billiards of all sorts, Colt cigars, Vegas, Banff, Elvis worthy jewelry, dry roasted peanuts, fur coats (he has a long family line of fur trappers, including pioneering life long employees of the Hudson Bay Company), steak dinners, egg salad sandwiches, Stetson hats, big belt buckles, cooking, the country lifestyle and Christmas decorating among other things.  He was certainly the only optometrist wearing pressed black Wranglers, cowboy boots and a Stetson with his lab coat.

In keeping with his wishes, there will be no formal service.  His children gathered in Banff for a tribute the Doc would be proud of.  The Man.  The Myth.  The Legend.  He was one of a kind.

“He’s done some wrong, he’s done some right

Won and lost some fights

It ain’t always sweet tea

Lovin’, runnin’, son of a gun, like an old outlaw

But ain’t that country”  -The Cadillac Three

Obituary of Donald Ross McIntyre (Langley, Edmonton, Winnipeg)

Posted by on October 19, 2018

Donald Ross McIntyre

June 14,1932 – October 13, 2018

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. As a small boy he developed his life long love affair with cars as he learned the makes and models of all the cars that passed through the border each day.

Don graduated from the University of Manitoba with a Bachelors of Arts and spent most of his career working as a claims manager in the insurance industry. He married the love of his life and his best friend Dorothy Ann Redfearn in 1957 and set about raising his family in Winnipeg, Calgary and Edmonton. In 1988 he was transferred to Langley BC where he retired. Don and Dorothy loved to travel. After Dorothy died in 2013, Don took a solo trip to Tuktoyaktuk in February, 2015 at the age of 82 as a fundraiser for the cancer society.  

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.

Don leaves behind his sister, Elizabeth (Lynn), sons Matthew and Cameron (Darlene), daughter Kathleen (Phil), grandchildren Arica (Bryce), Kate, Larisa, Joshua, Emily (Josh), Nathan Ross, Joanna, Xiomara, Benjamin, Jacob, and great grandchildren Cooper and Michael.

Many thanks to Reverend Kelly Duncan and Reverend Laurie Deacon for their care and attentiveness to Dad in his last weeks, and to the staff at Crossroads Inlet Hospice and the Royal Columbian Hospital who were unfailingly kind and compassionate.

A Memorial Service will be held for Don on Wednesday, Oct 24th at 7 pm at the Parish of St. George in Fort Langley  (9160 Church St., Fort Langley, BC, V1M 2R6).

Obituary of CLARK, Paulina (Kilbertus) of Grand Bend, age 82

Posted by on May 28, 2018

Paulina Clark

(nee Kilburtus)

23 April 1936 – 10 May 2018

We lost Paulina to effing cancer at the Exeter, Ontario, hospital. Her birthday was two weeks earlier and she was pleased about making it to 82. Last summer she received the terrible terminal diagnosis. She lived her final months in her beloved and idyllic home in Grand Bend, lovingly cared for by tag-teaming daughters, a revolving cast of family and friends, and wonderful professionals. The songbirds, card games, puzzles and Netflix helped, too.

Paulina made it to the finish line with dignity, pride, humour, trademark stubbornness, and a loving and generous heart as big as Lake Huron. She lived and died the way she wanted. Even on the worst final days she would find a smile, crack an impish grin, utter a funny profanity. She outlived by two years the love of her life, Len Ballantyne, got to see her three children flourish and marry, and watched her grandkids grow up. Late in life she found a new best friend, her neighbour Wendy Atmore.

She was born in Montreal to immigrant parents. Her father, Valentino Kilbertus, died when she was three; her mother Alma went back to work and placed her daughter in foster care. Paulina had an itinerant childhood, as her foster mother moved around the continent, with stops (and new schools for Paulina) in Halifax, Winnipeg, Michigan and Toronto. Paulina’s teenaged years found her in Ste. Rose, Quebec, where she met her first husband Richard Clark. After the divorce, she raised her kids as a single mom north of Montreal in Blainville, Quebec, and eventually moved to Ontario, where she met and fell in love with Len. They shared and stoked each other’s love for line dancing, Texas, cards, dominoes, every gadget known to mankind, and Lake Huron’s beautiful beaches. They threw many parties at their home in the Cove at Grand Bend, and were regulars at the Legion Branch 498.

Paulina was an avid gardener and creative crafter. She loved to dance, and boy, oh, boy, did she love to shop! With her loss, we have warned Wal-Mart, Giant Tiger and Publishing Clearing House to expect a drop in profits.

Paulina will be terribly missed by many: her daughter Lianne Clark and her husband Randy Hall, daughter Nancy Kay Clark and husband Doug Bennet, son Ron Clark and wife Michelle Johnson Clark, her adoring grandkids Nathan, Eliza, Raymond, Brianna, Mackenzie, and many neighbours and friends, especially Wendy Atmore and Mark Broughner.

There’s a new card shark in heaven.

Special thanks to Lambton County EMS and the team at South Huron Hospital. Donations may be made to the South Huron Hospital Foundation.

Visitation: Friday, May 18, 4 to 7 p.m.  Memorial Service:  Saturday, May 19, from 10 to 12 p.m. at the T. Harry Hoffman & Sons Funeral Home, 118 Dashwood Main Street, Dashwood.

Obituary of REYNOLDS: Tracey Lea of Kelowna Formerly of Winnipeg

Posted by on March 16, 2018

Tracey Lea Reynolds, age 49, June 18, 1968 – February 23, 2018

Tracey Lea Reynolds passed away peacefully at Vancouver General Hospital surrounded by her family on the night of February 23, 2018. Tracey was a permanent resident of Kelowna, BC, and was born in Winnipeg, MB.

With great sadness in their loss, Tracey is survived by her daughter, Sara Rose, longtime partner Ron Campbell, parents Carole and Barry Reynolds, sisters Lisa Reynolds and April Cherpaw, brother Cyril Everaert, niece and nephew Alyssa and Tyler Goodbrand, and many aunts, uncles and cousins. She was predeceased by her Granny (Mae) Kusmack, sister Donna Cherpaw and father Cyril Everaert.

Tracey was diagnosed with scleroderma several years ago, which affected her quality of life. When she learned that she was an eligible recipient of a donor set of lungs, she bravely undertook one of the most difficult journeys of her life. Tracey fought hard for a second chance at life and knew the possible risks. Her recovery was nothing short of miraculous before a sudden and shocking stroke tragically affected her chances for a full recovery. She battled valiantly for nearly a week before drifting away from us.

Tracey was as independent as she was stubborn and loved people in her own special way. She was a strong woman who always did her best for herself and others, despite her circumstances. She tried to lift people up and provide positivity even when she was feeling down. She cared deeply about those she chose to surround herself with and will be remembered mostly for her thoughtfulness. She was happiest in an environment that was peaceful and reflective of nature. She loved camping, her cats, photography, food and music. Her greatest love was always her daughter Sara, who will miss her ‘Pooky’ with all her heart. Tracey will be missed more than she ever could have realized and loved more than she knew.

Tracey’s family would like to thank Dr. Yee, Katrina S. and the entire staff of the Lung Transplant team at Vancouver General Hospital. Additional thanks to Dr. Chen and the staff of the NICU , Dr. Yeung and staff of the palliative unit at VGH. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Tracey’s name to the following organizations: Scleroderma Association of BC, BC Lung Association or the Heart & Stroke Foundation. Cremation has taken place. A celebration of Tracey’s life will take place in Kelowna on Saturday, March 17,2018 at Trinity Baptist Church, 1905 Springfield Rd, at 2:00pm.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Norma Bilugan Urrutia, a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend, on the early morning of December 13, 2015 in New Westminster, British Columbia at the age of 73 years old. Norma was born on May 30, 1942 in Daet, Camarines, Norte, Philippines. Predeceased by her parents Esteban and Lorenza Bilugan, Norma will always be lovingly remembered by her husband of 49 years, Mario Gamboa Urrutia; as well as her daughters Celia (with her husband Vener) and daughter Juliet (with her husband Jim).

Norma will also be tenderly remembered by her four grand daughters: Tayler, Kyra, Devyn and Jaidyn. The second eldest of eight, Norma will be dearly missed by her sisters and brothers, and their families; Lilia (Angelo – deceased) Jimenez Jr.; Librada (deceased) (Renato – deceased) Domingo; Ricardo (Tessie) Bilugan; Gloria (Emil – deceased) Albano; Lamberto (deceased); (Aresenia) Bilugan; Elizabeth (Danilo) Trias; Wilfredo Bilugan; as well as many other family members and friends. Norma immigrated to Canada in 1972 along with her husband Mario and first daughter, Celia.

At that time, Norma was pregnant with her second daughter, Juliet, where they all settled as a family in Winnipeg, Manitoba in the hopes of a promising start as Canadian citizens. She, along with her husband, then retired to beautiful British Columbia. Norma touched the lives of everyone as a kind and loving woman, who quietly lived a life filled with travel, Hawaii being one of her most favorite destination spots.

She enjoyed spending time with her four grand daughters, and taught them many talents such as baking and cross-stitching. Norma, a selfless woman, gave such unconditional love to her family, which we all treasured every single day. The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff at Royal Columbian Hospital – Cardiac Surgery Intensive Care Unit (CSICU), for the gentle care given to our mother.

Obituary of RAMRATTAN: Bob of Winnipeg Formerly of Trinidad

Posted by on January 21, 2018

images-4

With his loving family by his side, Bob’s journey on this earth came to an end on November 6, 2017. Bob was a loving husband to Dianne and proud father to Ric (Sue – Alysha and Skot, Angela and Adam) and Alisa (Christine – Michael and Matthew). He was an adoring brother to Merle (Peter), Mona (Ashley), Ray (Sandra), Rudy (Sally), Christine (Ben), Gobin (Hema), Santi, Doolin and Dhano; and proud uncle to his 13 nieces and nephews. Bob had so many wonderful friends in his lifetime, in Canada and in Trinidad. Bob was born in Jordan Hill, Trinidad and came to Canada in 1960. On that first day he met his “wife to be” at the Java Shop. Not wasting any time, he asked her on a date to a cricket match at the City Park the next day, and the rest was history. Bob and Dianne raised their family in Winnipeg, MB and Kamloops, BC. Bob’s career spanned over 40 years working for the Province of Manitoba’s Department of Education and Northern Affairs, Red River College and Caribou College. What mattered most to Bob was his family, friends and the promotion of quality education and a meaningful job. He dedicated his own life to learning and educating others, first with a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Winnipeg, followed by a Masters of Education from The University of Saskatchewan. He was a pioneer of adult education in Manitoba, bringing “made to fit” training programs to many rural and First Nations communities. His most prized accomplishment was the FRED project (Fund for Rural Economic Development) in the 1960s and 70s, where he had the chance to initiate and develop adult education training programs for the benefit of Manitoba’s Interlake region. In his final hours, Bob said “I had a good life and I will always be with you, in your hearts forever.

Obituary of HUNTER: Roderick G.M. of Viking Formerly of Viking

Posted by on January 21, 2018

images-4

The Arrow has taken flight. On January 6, 2018, Roderick George Maclean Hunter curled his last rock in the bonspiel of life, departing this world at age 74.

Rod was knighted “The Arrow” by the media back in the mid 60s because of his perfect delivery of the curling rock, but his life would show that this nickname suited him in more ways than one.

The arrow is the tool of the warrior. Rod’s fighting spirit led him to qualify for the Brier four times from 1970 to 1975 and capture back-to-back Silver Broom World Championships in 1970 and ’71, (going undefeated in 17 straight games but never bragging about it). It also got him inducted into the Manitoba Curling Hall of Fame, the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame and the Canadian Curling Hall of Fame as one of the top vice-skips ever to play the game. After moving to Alberta, he went on to win a Silver medal in the Canadian 55plus winter games with Vern and Jan Hafso and his wife, Louise. One of his proudest moments was standing on the podium with teammates Don Duguid, Jim Pettapiece, and Bryan Wood after winning the World Championships in Utica, New York, and listening to the Canadian National anthem play in his honour.

Rod was also the arrow in the compass, forever pointed north. He had answers to everything: Curling strategy, barbecue times, handy-man repairs, politics, Hollywood plot lines, Lego assembly, kids’ dress-up choices, hockey stats, world peace and the global economy. If there were any doubts, all you needed to do was ask, and he’d tell you he was right.

Like the arrows on a keyboard, his four surviving daughters – Onalee, Charlene, Andrea and Courtney – kept him moving in all four directions at once. His talent for diplomacy kept the family strong. He could always find a way to steer his girls in the right direction (sometimes subtle, sometimes not) and was instrumental in the achievement of their dreams. This talent also made him a great politician, which he excelled at in the last few years of his life as a proud Councillor in Viking, Alberta.

But Rod was also Cupid’s arrow, which he forever kept aimed at his surviving wife of 30 years, Louise Hunter. While nothing came before her, he had plenty of love to spare for to his two surviving brothers, John and Craig Hunter (with whom he adored sharing good scotch and long debates) his predeceased parents, Roderick O. A. and Doris Hunter, his mother-in-law, Louise C. Mihill, his surviving grandchildren – Maddyx, Noah, Sullivan, Gwynavere, Aiden and Aspen — and the countless friends who were so important to him. He also had a life-long love affair with cinnamon buns, the game of golf, celebrity encounters, a good rum (or more recently scotch), a perfectly cooked steak, the cabin at Clearwater Bay, storytelling, more storytelling, and of course his wiener dogs, who he’d let clean his face and spoon with him at night.

Like an arrow, Rod never wavered from his true path. He went from sweeping the finish off his childhood bedroom floor, to rising star at the Granite Curling Club in Winnipeg, to cleaning up at the curling World Championships. He went from patriotic Royal Canadian Sea Cadet, to Bachelor of Science student at the University of Winnipeg, to his first job at Richardson Securities, to General Manager at Dominion Tanners, to effective and caring Councillor in Viking, Alberta. He went from curling legend, to devoted husband, to inspiring father and proud grandfather.

In lieu of flowers, the family would prefer a donation be sent to the Viking Volunteer Fire Department at www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/the-viking-volunteer-fire-department-society or Viking Victims Services at www.beavercountyvictimservices.ca.

The family chooses to celebrate his life at the Viking Curling club, located in Rod’s hometown of Viking, Alberta at 3pm on Saturday, January 13th, 2018. Those who loved Rod are invited to join the family in toasting his life and launching the arrow into his journey ahead. Wherever he’s pointed, in true Rod form, he’s bound for greatness.
