Travis David Janaway

September 6, 1972 – January 5, 2019

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Travis Janaway on January 5th, 2019.   A loving husband and devoted father, Travis will be sadly missed by his wife Kristine, daughters Victoria and Kaitlynn and dad, Dave (Myrna). Forever loved by uncle Charlie (Marsha), sister-in-law Nadia (Fabio), niece Mikaela, nephew Francesco, mother-in-law Marianne, and the many aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family and friends whose lives he touched.

Travis was predeceased by his brother Rodney and mom Roberta (Bobbi) Janaway.

Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba September 6, 1972, Travis inherited a love of sports, participating in hockey, baseball and golf throughout his youth.

Travis began his career in the transportation industry working for Purolator Courier in Winnipeg Manitoba. Recruited by Dicom, Travis accepted a management position and he and Kristine moved to Mississauga, Ontario in 1996. Along with a partner and close friend, Travis opened Express Distribution Services in Barrie, Ontario in 1999 to fill a void within the transportation industry. The company grew and garnered much success with Travis in command, ultimately leading to a merger with Muskoka Delivery Service in 2007 where he remained for the duration of his career. Fondly referred as the “human map”, he was well liked and respected within the industry, Everyone that had the privilege of working with Travis throughout his career would agree he was dedicated and had an unwavering worth ethic.

A dedicated family man, Travis and Kristine moved to Barrie in 2001 to start their family. Daughter Victoria arrived November 13, 2002 with daughter Kaitlynn following on January 9, 2006. Travis shared his love of sports with his girls enrolling them in softball at a young age, and then coaching them as they continued to excel in the sport. Summers were all about ball, but for Travis, he would not have it any other way. On any given night if you didn’t see him at a practice or game, you could find him with his daughters on the front lawn practicing their pitching.

Involved in community, Travis was an active coach and mentor with the Barrie and District Girls Softball association. His dedication and enthusiasm followed him from the job to the playing field. For Travis, this was not just about the game, but about family and friendships extending beyond one season.

He will be greatly missed by all.

Friends may call at ADAMS FUNERAL HOME (445 St. Vincent Street, Barrie) on Saturday from 1-4 p.m. A Funeral Service will be held on Sunday, January 13, 2019 at 1 o’clock p.m. with visitation from 12 p.m. Memorial Donations to Seasons Centre for Grieving Children would be appreciated.

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

Highs and lows, that’s the way it goes

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 Finnerty, Leslie Gordon of Barrie, Ontario

Posted by on November 21, 2018

FINNERTY, LESLIE GORDON – June 24, 1934 – November 16, 2018
It is with great sadness that the family share his peaceful passing while listening to his favourite Irish music on Friday November 16th at Millcreek Care Centre, Barrie, ON. Predeceased by his beloved wife Isobel (Church). Loving and devoted father of Lorne and John.  Adored father in law of Debbie Foll. Cherished and fun-loving Papa of Erin and Jeff.  Survived by sisters Juilita, Joanne (passed the next morning) and Noreen.  Predeceased by brother Pat. Les will be missed by many nieces, nephews, cousins, his curling and card buddies, McInnis Lake cottagers, family, and friends. The family would like to express their grateful thanks to all the staff of Mill Creek Care Centre who took such wonderful care of Les over the last 5 months.
Les was the beloved first born of Ambrose and Mary Kate Finnerty (Stack) in Kirkland Lake, ON in 1934.  He was raised and eventually married in Timmins.  After a short stint in mining and other entrepreneurial ventures, he pursued a career with the CNR which entailed many relocations throughout Ontario. During his lengthy CNR career he embraced many challenges, developed lasting relationships and was a mentor and inspiration to many.
He was the responsible eldest of five, who, upon the early death of his father, became a source of guidance and financial support for his mother and younger sisters. A broken nose at the high school football tryouts made him seek more benign leisure pursuits such as dancing, singing, charming women, skiing, golfing, bridge and bargain hunting.
In 1957 he married Isobel Church and together they raised Lorne and John, providing many enjoyable memories, especially summers at McInnis Lake.  For sixty years he was a devoted husband, travel companion and champion of her political career, with special pride in her appointment to the Senate.  Finally, he was her steadfast reliable caregiver.  Together they delighted in their grandchildren Erin and Jeff.
As a longtime member of Burlington Golf and County Club, Les was equally famous for his annual Santa Claus performances as he was for his curling prowess.  Friends were reluctant to share a confidence lest it be exposed during his Christmas gig.
Les’s predominant traits were his eternal optimism, and steely resilience.  These attributes trace their origin to his Irish ancestors whose courage and perseverance allowed them to survive the famine ship voyage to Canada in search of a better life.  At an early age he would accompany his father’s fiddle music on the piano.  With very little provocation he would sing his entire Irish repertoire, never repeating the same song twice.  He could call and lead a square dance simultaneously.  He was a witty storyteller with an endless source of material.  He was a genuine extrovert and a great entertainer.  He was proud to be known as the family ambassador to some eighty, first cousins, reaching out to maintain family bonds.

In every aspect of his life he nurtured and cherished lasting friendships.  If you are one of those fortunate acquaintances either recent or long term, Les invites you to honour his memory with a song called “The Parting Glass” by Liam Clancy and a toast to all his great family and friends!

Cry me no tears beyond reacting to beauty.
For tears should be the gentle critic.
Mourn not my death, for you would colour my life with sadness.
But dance and sing and continue to love
To show me from where I watch
That our time together was special
To do otherwise would be to mark me a failure.

George’s words for all you, for one last time
“As always I am compelled to tell you that I can’t and I won’t stop loving you”

Moore- Doris Alice (nee Johnson) Born 9 Nov 1937 in Nottingham, England and passed away 22 October 2018.  She was young athlete who loved cycling and long-distance swimming.  She emigrated to Canada, married Jerry and had two children, Richard and Sue.  Her family was the light of her life until she had grandchildren.  She spoiled each and everyone with as much love as she could as often as she could.  Our family has grown and she welcomed everyone with open arms.  Late in life she was lucky to find love again with Wilf.  Doris was a cheerful, supportive, helpful person who was always ready with a smile, hug and a kind word.  She loved gardening, music, coffee, ice cream, Christmas, dogs and fast cars like her 1966 Charger!  We lost the centerpiece of our family.  She leaves us with a hole in our hearts that can’t be filled but the memories we have will keep us warm for a lifetime.  So for those that never met her, you would have loved her.

We invite family and friends to a Celebration of Life to be held at Royal Canadian Legion Branch 385, 105 Industrial Parkway North in Aurora on 10 November 2018 at 1pm.
