SITTER: Conrad William of Exeter, formerly of Deep River

Posted by on August 24, 2016

Sitter, Conrad Main-W300Sitter, Conrad William, age 74 of Exeter, Ontario formerly of Deep River, Ontario at his son Douglas’ home in Toronto, on Monday, August 22, 2016. Survived by his loving wife and best friend for 50 years, Bonnie (Hogarth) Sitter.  Missed by his son Russell and his wife Carolina of Lexington, Kentucky, and son Douglas and his wife Elaine of Toronto.  Missed by his grandchildren Riley and Chloe of Florida, and Isla and William of Toronto.  Also left to mourn are his sister Mary Ellen and brother-in-law Dean Anderson of Thedford; Elaine Baynham of Grand Bend, Carole and Peter Jackson of Comfort, Texas, and Brian and Margaret Hogarth of Dashwood.  Special Uncle to Nick and Carla Sitter, Bonnie Baynham and Scott Rundle, Stephen and Kim Baynham, Debbie Anderson, David Anderson, Glenda Baldwin, Chris and Carlye Jackson, Cameron Jackson and Kate Driscoll, Jennifer Jackson and Rob Hughes, Heather and Michael Griffin, and Hilary and Sean Ryan.  Predeceased by parents William and Gertrude Sitter, brother George, sister-in-law Lillian Sitter, brother-in-law Larry Baynham and nephew Brad Baynham.

Conrad grew up on a farm outside of Thedford, Ontario. He enjoyed riding ponies that his grandfather raised, and carved toy guns so he could be a cowboy. His stories of his father growing peppermint and distilling it for the candy industry were always fun to hear. He attended a one-room school house and always praised the education he received there. After high school he graduated from St. Clair College and accepted a position at Atomic Energy, Chalk River where he collaboratively designed, developed and implemented techniques and equipment, that furthered our greater understanding of solid-state science. Conrad and Bonnie started a successful travel agency in Deep River and raised their 2 sons there to enjoy both the summers and winters on the Ottawa River.

He fulfilled his dream to become a private pilot and flew his family on holidays across Canada and into the United States. He was always conscious of his responsibility to ensure his family was safe, following the motto “when in doubt, don’t”.

He travelled to South America, the Caribbean, Europe, Russia, Great Britain, Ireland, and throughout the USA. He loved his trips in Canada the most, exploring the wilderness with his family and friends. He was proud of his sons, and beautiful daughters-in-law and his precious grandchildren and especially enjoyed his last trip abroad to Scotland for his son Douglas’ wedding.

Music was a huge part of Conrad’s life. At an early age he taught himself how to play guitar and enjoyed playing and singing with his sons who shared his love of music. He was a member of Caven Presbyterian Church and sang in their choir. He also sang in the community choir, played in the handbell choir and played percussion in the community band. Conrad also enjoyed volunteering for OneCare and Habitat for Humanity.

All knew his love of canoeing and he purchased his Grumman canoe in August of 1978. His many trips on the Ottawa River, Long Lake, and Stoney Lake and to the Barron River Canyon and Kilarney Park brought so much pleasure. Conrad and his son Russell competed in the Tour De Champlain Canoe race from Pembroke to Arnprior in 1985, a thrill for both of them. Cross country skiing, attaining an 8 Ender in curling, and sailing, boating and golf were all highlights for Conrad.

Cremation has taken place and a celebration of Conrad’s life will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion, R. E. Pooley Branch #167, 316 William Street, Exeter on Sunday, September 25th from 12 PM Noon until 3 PM with words of remembrance at 1:30 PM.

Donations to Habitat for Humanity, OneCare, South Huron Hospital Foundation, or the Ausable Bayfield Conservation Foundation would be appreciated by the family.

JOHNSON, Rev. Robert Harold of Bakersfield, California

Posted by on August 23, 2016

Johnson Robert for webOn the evening of August 19 in Cobourg, Ontario, Rev. Robert Johnson passed into the presence of the Lord, surrounded by family. He is survived by his wife of 62 years, Jean M. Johnson, his sister Shirley (Robert) Taitinger, and brother Wallace (Ellen) Johnson, and his four children––Van (Karen) Johnson, Jan (Dan) Johnson-Theroux, Jeff (Donna) Johnson, and Jennifer (Clark) Jensen––and nine grandchildren. He is predeceased by brothers James and Eldon. Robert Johnson was born in Pembroke, Ontario, on May 15, 1931. Pastor Johnson came to Montreal in 1960 to pastor Verdun Pentecostal Church (later Trinity Pentecostal Church), where he was joined by his brother Wallace in 1963. By 1962, his influence was being felt beyond the church walls. It began with the popularity of Dial-A-Message, a sixty-second recording that, at its peak, was getting about 5,000 callers a day. A radio executive concluded that if 5,000 people were interested in listening to his recorded message, then they would listen to him on the radio. And so began 22 years hosting religious talk shows, first on CKGM, and later CFOX and CFCF. The show was “Ask the Pastor.” This radio exposure led to his appointment as chaplain for the Montreal Expos baseball team. It also opened up doors for him to raise money for charitable endeavours, including the establishment of a youth home, Teen Haven, to house youth coming through the juvenile detention system­­­­. He was still Executive Director at Teen Haven at the time of his death. His annual Christmas radio telethons to raise money to provide Christmas baskets for the needy became a fixture of the holiday season. He went on to pastor in Edmonton and then in Bakersfield, California. When in California, he co-founded Global Family Care Network that works in at-risk communities around the world with an emphasis upon girl-child trafficking.  The funeral service will be held in the Tabernacle on the grounds of Lakeshore Pentecostal Camp, 1405 Pentecostal Road, Cobourg, Ontario at 1 pm on Friday, August 26. Reception to follow. Visitation will be at MacCoubrey Funeral Home, 30 King St. E., Cobourg, Thursday, August 25, from 2-4 and 7-9. Those wishing may make a memorial donation to Global Family Care Network. Condolences received at www.MacCoubrey.com.
