ILLMAN: Kenneth Edwin of Forest, Ontario (formerly of Kenora, Ontario)

Posted by on September 17, 2015

IMGKenneth Edwin Illman – Aka CRUNCH!

Ken was born April 12th, 1947 in Listowel, Ontario to parents Everett and Edith Illman, now deceased. He grew up in Monkton, Ontario with his brother Brian Illman (London – predeceased 2013), sister Pat (Bob) Bower (Burlington), Bruce Illman (Lloydminster, Alberta), and Derek (Rhonda Lee) Illman (London). Also survived by brother in law Roger Brown (Pat) and many nieces and nephews. Ken went onto the University of Western Ontario and studied Science. He and his wife Ruth (nee Brown) married and both started their teaching careers in Forest, Ontario at North Lambton Secondary School. He and Ruth had two children, Tammy (Stan) Kwarciak (Grand Bend, Ontario), Adam (Jana-Rae) Illman (Kenora, Ontario). He was a proud grandparent of Mark (Dyman) and Danielle Kwarciak, Alex and Amelia Illman, all of whom are very sad at this time. Ken taught Physical Education at NLSS for 32 years. At school he was known as Crunch and he coached many students over the years in all sports programs. Coaching was his passion and he spent evenings and weekends each school year doing what he loved. Upon retirement in 2000, he continued to teach and coach for seven years until lung cancer precipitated a change. In 2009 Ken moved to Kenora, Ontario to spend time with his son Adam’s family in picturesque northwestern Ontario. Ken always loved his hunting and fishing and trips to the French River, Ontario with his family and then later treasured the beauty of the northwest. He was an avid hunter who also taught hunter safety for 30 years. Many of these students would accompany him on various expeditions. While in Kenora, Ken lived in a new home built for Ruth and him, situated high on a rock face over the Winnipeg River and nestled amongst the pine trees. Here he would boat and fish often with his younger grandchildren. In Ken’s last few years his health declined significantly and he had many hospital stays. Ken was flown back to Forest Ontario after a month stay at the Kenora Lake of the Woods District Hospital via Air Ambulance on August 31th, 2015. He resided at the North Lambton Lodge in Forest for just over one week. In his short stay, he got to see and to say hello to many familiar faces until he again was taken to Strathroy Hospital. He was then transferred to London University Hospital and after a hard fight, on September 16, 2015, aged 68, lost his battle, with his family by his side. In these final days he was cared for by two of the finest nurses, his daughter Tammy and granddaughter Danielle. Ken loved his students and NLSS. We are sure he is in the gymnasium now doing what he loved. The Ministry of Natural Resources will now have to determine how to control the goose and deer populations! The family would like to thank the excellent medical staff of Kenora Lake of the Woods District Hospital, Strathroy Hospital, and University Hospital – London, who provided care to Ken. In addition we thank the many Kenora services : Kenora Community Support, the staff of Pinecrest Club Day Away, homecare support personnel and the Northwest CCAC. We especially thank Doctor Sven “Buzz” Pedersen who was Ken’s Doctor for six years in Kenora. Donations in Ken’s memory can be made to the Lake of the Woods District Hospital Foundation, the North Lambton Secondary School (directly to the school with reference to memorial donation), or a local charity of choice. It was Ken’s wish for his grandson Mark and his wife Dyman to finish Medical School and as such a Celebration of Life will be held at the Forest Legion on Monday October 12th 2015 , 1:00-4:00 with “Sharing of Stories” at 3:00 pm. Online condolences and donations may be left at www.denning.ca   Funeral arrangements entrusted to DENNINGS OF FOREST

Jake_Stanley_CroppedSTANLEY: Jacob Lucas
October 21 1994-September 12 2015

On September 12, 2015 we were forced to say goodbye to Jake a little over a month before his 21st birthday. It is with great sadness and heartbreak that we mourn the unexpected passing of our son, brother and friend to many. Jake could always be counted on to make people laugh, pick up others when they were down, and put the people he loved before himself. He always took the time to get to know everyone he met, young or old, and had countless friendships from the Peterborough area all the way to Edmonton, Alberta. He touched the lives of many and inspired all by how hard he worked in Grand Prarie, and how determined and fearless he was throughout his boxing career. More than anything, Jake loved his family. He cherished his parents, Roger and Cindy Stanley, his grandfathers Gord Stanley and Paul Winger, and adored his grandmother, Nig. He idolized his brothers John and Joe Stanley, and always kept his sisters, Jessica Stanley and Brittany Coutts close to his heart. Jake will also be missed dearly by his aunts, uncles, cousins and close friends Mary Moncrief and Carly Evans, both of which he considered a part of the Stanley family. Friends and relatives may call at THE HENDREN FUNERAL HOMES, LAKEFIELD CHAPEL on Monday September 21, 2015 from 2-4 & 7-9 PM. A funeral service will be held in the chapel on Tuesday September 22, 2015 at 11:00 AM. Cremation. A reception will follow at the R.C.L. Branch #77, Lakefield. Memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Mental Health Association as expressions of sympathy.
