He loved to help people and his greatest pleasure was to see his projects succeed. Beyond his work and music, Andre loved nature and the farm in Vandeleur, helping his mother stay in her home in her later years. While his life was cut short, he was able to live every day while he was here to the fullest and had great pride in his son’s accomplishments.

Obituary of Robertson; Robert Norman of Markdale in his 58th year resting at Fawcett Funeral Cremation Reception

Posted by on February 14, 2018

Robertson; Robert Norman


Bob passed away suddenly at his home in Carnaville, Markdale on Tuesday, February 13, 2018 in his 58th year with his loving partner of Linda Chevrier by his side. Beloved son of Ruth Robertson of Shelburne, John(Deb Currie) Robertson of Markdale and step mother Marne Robertson. Loving father to Michelle Chevrier of Vaughn. Dear brother to John Jr. of Toronto, Frederick(Nancy) of Orangeville, Carrie(Cory Lafonte), James(Dawn) all of Markdale and step sisters Andrea(Dean) Archdekin and Chrissy Currie(Brett Coates) all of Wasaga Beach. He will be remembered as cherished uncle to John, Elizabeth, Jeffrey, Allie, Jassie, Ward, Jackson, Grace, Paige, Skylar, Daniel, Dezeray, Zack and Madison. He will be missed by his many great nieces, great nephews, cousins and friends in the carnival industry.
Bob was born in Newmarket on January 30, 1961. He grew up in Bolton, Niagara and Scarborough. He would spend his summers with his dad at the carnivals and once he was of working age he dove right into the family business. He later got his mechanics license and did all the inspections on the trucks. He quickly learned the trades and was a born entrepreneur; starting up his own business at a very young age. This came easily to Bob, which is probably what made him the best concessioner there ever was; everyone wanted to play his games. He thoroughly enjoyed snowmobiling, working on his dune buggy and Star Wars, especially the music. A real comedian, mostly stand up, he loved to make you laugh. But nothing was better than his own child-like laugh. Bob was a fair person who never took sides. He was very methodical and would often sit and take everything in before speaking. He was tidy and neat and it nearly droving him crazy, but these qualities are what made him such a perfectionist and so good at his job. Selfless in every way. So many will miss their time spent with Bob, but no one as much as the children. He loved to spend every moment he could with his nieces and nephews; reading to them and playing games.
The family will receive friends at the Fawcett Funeral Cremation Reception, Flesherton on Sunday, February 18 from 2:00-4:00 and 7:00-9:00pm. Funeral service from Annesley United Church (82 Toronto St. S, Markdale) on Monday at 11:00am. Interment Markdale Cemetery. Memorial contributions to Heart and Stroke Foundations or OSPCA would be gratefully appreciated. Online donations and condolences at www.fawcettfuneralhome.ca 88-924-2810

It was their retirement in 1988 that brought them to beautiful Durham, ON. Kathleen much loved to read, walking and enjoying the country living. Her property gave her time to enjoy her dogs, and Anne’s dogs, the birds feeding at her many bird houses and most of all her antiques.

Obituary of Giffening; Harold at Grey Gables Nursing Home, Markdale, formerly of Priceville resting at Fawcett Funeral Cremation Reception Flesherton

Posted by on January 18, 2018

Giffening; Harold H

 

Peacefully at Grey Gables Nursing Home on January 18, 2018, in his 86th year, formerly of Priceville. Loving father to Wilhelmine (Willie) Jones and outstanding grandfather to Daniel(Jessica Koller) Jones, Stephanie(Michael Dukich) Jones and Caitlin (David Currell) Jones. Greatly missed by sister Trudy Howard. Dearest friend of Helen Shibish and Shirley Jones. Harold will be fondly remembered by Steven Shibish, Linda Reburn and many other friends.

Known as a “Master of All Trades”, Harold began his journey in Oldenburg, Germany where he apprenticed as a saddle maker and then travelled to Switzerland to work for a Baron taking care of the horses, learning many skills and values that would carry him through his life. He dreamed as a child to come to Canada which he did, together with his wife from Italy in 1958, first going to Alberta and then settling in Northern Ontario to work at any job available, quickly finding work as a gold miner in Kirkland Lake. While there he bought the entire encyclopedia Britannica which he used to teach himself English. Then he trained as an HVAC technician by correspondence. When the time came, Harold made his way to Toronto where he worked as an HVAC technician, and later using these skills to work as a machinist. Upon retirement, he moved to Priceville, which he described as paradise, and where he build his own home.

His adventures and experiences helped carve a man who was passionate about the environment and preserving our earth. “… and if the world ends tomorrow, today I plant an apple tree.” – Martin Luther

The family will receive friends at Fawcett Funeral Cremation Reception (1 Highland Drive, Flesherton) on Tuesday, January 23 from 11am until the time of service at noon. Reception to follow. Interment Evergreen Cemetery at a later date. Memorial contributions would be greatly appreciated by the Grey Gables Activity Fund. www.fawcettfuneralhome.ca 519-924-2810
