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 DONOHUE, William Anthony “Bill” Jr. of Sarnia

DONOHUE, WILLIAM ANTHONY “BILL” Jr. – Thank God the Toronto Raptors won. While cheering on his beloved team, with his Raptors hat, scarf, and socks on, Bill died at home, on Wednesday, December 5, 2018, at the age of 82.

Bill was the beloved husband of 55 years to his like-minded, and better-looking, wife Victoria Donohue, a non-golfer. Vicki being a non-golfer was what made the marriage last for 55 years. When asked how she felt over the death of her “Dear,” Vicki said, “If the Raptors didn’t get him, I was sure the Toronto Maple Leafs would.”

Bill, (PopsPopsey) was a loving and proud (and we’re not at all biased) father of Dr. Mary Donohue (Paul Brent) of Toronto; Mark Donohue (Lisa) of Oakville; Tim Donohue (Erin Crawford) of London, and cherished grandfather of Jia, Jacob and Madelyn.

When asked about their thoughts on the passing of the one man who loved them unconditionally their entire lives, his children unanimously stated that, “We are surprised it didn’t happen on the golf course, when he finally made a putt”

His love of golf, sports, travel, martinis and adventures with his family was usurped only by his propensity to get in and out of the “trickiest” situations, including locking his keys in the car in the worst part of Detroit (and finding some “fine fellows” to open the door, who mysteriously had “jimmy sticks” handy in their trench coats). All incidents of luck were followed always by the words, “Don’t tell your mother!”

His personal quests included running his business, Donohue World Travel, for 30 years, while also volunteering. He served as chair and board member of the Lambton County Roman Catholic Separate School Board for 32 years; was a member of the Sarnia Yacht Club; and volunteered for the Heart and Stroke Society, the Cancer Society and the Catholic Church.

In his spare time Bill became a cowboy. He raised and showed Quarter Horses. He performed beyond all expectations. He even competed and won in the barrel racing category in a distinguished field of one.

Dear brother of John Donohue & Sean, Toronto; Patrick Donohue & Jane, Toronto; Joe Donohue & Maureen, Sarnia;  Irene Donohue, Sarnia; John Humphrey, London; and Colleen Donohue, Toronto. Brother-in-law of Charles (Chuck) Juryn (Wallaceburg). Predeceased by his parents, William & Eileen Donohue, and his sisters Elizabeth, Helen and Mary Eileen Donohue.

Cremation has taken place. Visitation will be held Tuesday, December 11, 2018 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the McKENZIE & BLUNDY FUNERAL HOME & CREMATION CENTRE, 431 Christina St. N., Sarnia. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated by his dear friend Fr. Matthew Sobierajski (whom he taught to golf), at 10 a.m., Wednesday, December 12, 2018 at Our Lady of Mercy Roman Catholic Church.  Private family interment at a later date.  As an expression of sympathy, friends who wish may send memorial donations to Bluewater Health Foundation, 89 Norman Street, Sarnia, ON, N7T 6S3 or St. Joseph Hospice, 475 N. Christina Street, Sarnia, ON N7T 5W3. Messages of condolence and memories may be left at www.mckenzieblundy.com

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.
