Pierre J. Groulx

March 17, 1953 – April 12, 2016

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Pierre J. Groulx, aged 63 years and born March 17, 1953 in Gatineau, Quebec. He will be mourned by Wendy Skyba, his spouse and love and by Nancy Skyba, her daughter, with whom he had developed a sweet friendship. He also leaves his two daughters Emmanuelle and Mylene whom he loved with his whole heart.  He will be remembered by Claire Delisle, the mother of his children and his wife for 22 years. He was the proud grandfather of Jeremy, Beatrice and Ophelie. Pierre is survived by his sister Micheline (Frank) and his brother Luc (Jocelyne) as well as his sons-in-law Antoine and Jean-Francois, aunts, cousins, nieces and nephews.
He was pre-deceased by his parents Leo-Paul Groulx and Georgette Lacasse.

He graduated from the university of Ottawa with a Degree in Electrical Engineering and then worked for the Federal Government for 35 years. He was a devoted Executive Director, who brought integrity and pride to the many important projects that he and his staff worked on.

Pierre loved to travel beginning with childhood trips to Mattawa in northern Ontario to his last vacation in Barcelona in September, with many holidays in between. More than anything Pierre loved to be in nature . Whether he was swimming or snorkeling, paddling a canoe or boating, he was happiest when he was on the water.

He was gentle and generous, he loved to read and laugh. He was clever with his hands and as a loving father it gave him great happiness to make wonderful wooden toys for his girls. His creations are being enjoyed to this day by his grand-children.

Pierre shared Wendy’s love of dogs and quickly becoming known as the best “Puppy Daddy” ever. He and their dog Lucy shared a very special relationship.

Pierre and Wendy spent their days in happy companionship in Lagoon City, Ontario. Pierre was content there, surrounded by water and in the company of good friends. He took every opportunity to take Wendy for boat rides in their little piece of paradise.

Even though he was diagnosed with cancer last fall, Pierre chose to be optimistic throughout his treatment. He looked forward to leaving hospital to put his boat in the water and take part in the Orillia Perch Tournament. Sadly he did not have the chance to do these things. Cancer took his life on April 12, 2016.

It was in Lagoon City that Pierre enjoyed his last years and so family and friends will gather there to remember him.

A Celebration of His Life will be held on
April 23, 2016 from 1pm to 4pm
at the Lagoon City Community Center,
84 Laguna Parkway, Unit 1,
Brechin, Ontario
L0K 1B0

In lieu of flowers donations to the Canadian Wildlife Foundation made in Pierre’s memory would be appreciated.   http://cwf-fcf.org

Predeceased by his parents Charles and Olive, and his beloved wife of 73 years, Doris Jean “Wynn” (Feb.6, 2016). Dedicated and loving father to Linda Rovere (Lorenzo) and Louise Dupuis (Don).

After the war he brought his new bride to Canada, completed 4 years of study at the University of Toronto and graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering. Together Jack and Wynn established a home in Leamington and raised two loving daughters, Jack as manager of the Leamington Public Utilities and Wynn as manager of the home and family. Jack served on many municipal and provincial committees during his time at the PUC. He was president of two provincial electrical societies, the AMEU and the OMEA. He served Knox Presbyterian Church as an elder and for many years was on the board of trustees. Jack and Wynn had many wonderful friends with whom they traveled and socialized. His children, however, would consider his greatest achievement as being a wonderful father and a truly devoted husband. We know that Jack and Wynn are once again happy together. Theirs is a truly amazing love story.

DRYSDALE, Richard Wayne “Dick” of Sudbury, ON

Posted by on April 14, 2016

DRYSDALE, RichardThe family announces with sorrow the passing of Richard Wayne “Dick” Drysdale suddenly at home, on December 24th 2015. Beloved husband of Rollande Drysdale (née Moisan), his First Mate on the water and on land. Beloved father of Sherry Drysdale. Richard also became a second father to Carole (Albert) Jager and Joanne Pilon. One of his greatest roles was “Grandpa Dick,” a part he played with love and delight. He was proud of all of his grandchildren: Jack Drysdale and Miriam Drysdale; Bradley Jager; Calvin, Kayla and Kelsey Pilon. He was the eldest son of the Gordon Drysdale clan, big brother to Larry Drysdale, Gordon Drysdale, Heather Gieser (John), Harvey Drysdale (late Barb), Cathy Cresswell (Jim), Patrick Drysdale (Cathy), and Mary-Lynn Potter (Rob). Richard cherished his family, and enjoyed many happy times with the Drysdale gang in town, on the water, on Manitoulin Island, and out west. He was a jovial Uncle Dick to many nieces and nephews, and a friend to brothers-in-law Jean-Claude (Lucie), Andre (Anita) and sisters-in-law Cecile Porlier, Lise Menard (Bob) and the late Lucille Mohan (late John). He is warmly remembered by Patricia (Wilson) Drysdale. Richard was born in Sudbury Sept. 5, 1938 and had deep roots in the Lockerby area of the city. He had a quick smile, a big laugh, and a firm handshake. He built a successful career in real estate; in all of his dealings, his word was his bond. He gave back to the community through service. After retiring, he worked just as hard, devoting his abundant energy to his boat, “Ad-Dick-tive,” moored at Killarney every spring until fall. The boating life, the waves, the sky and the fishing brought him great joy. The family will receive relatives and friends at the Cooperative Funeral Home, 222 Lasalle Blvd, Sudbury on Monday, Dec. 28, 6-8 pm; Tuesday Dec. 29 1-4 pm and 6-8 pm. A funeral service will be held on Wednesday Dec. 30 at 10:30 am. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Richard W.
