SPORER, John of Sudbury, formerly of Timmins, ON

Posted by on March 17, 2014

SPORER, JohnJohn Sporer, 83, of Sudbury passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on March 8th, 2014. John was born in Sudbury on August 9th, 1930 to the late Anthony and Elizabeth (Banko) Sporer and grew up in Timmins. He graduated from the University of Western Ontario in 1957 with first class honours with a degree in Geology and spent his career in education as a teacher and principal. He married Lenore (Marshall) in 1955 and over the next 58 years, they built a family in Schumacher and then Sudbury with summers spent at their beloved cottage on Ice Chest Lake in Timmins. John spent his early career as a surveyor with Pamour Mines in northern Ontario. He entered the classroom in 1959 as a highly regarded teacher and principal with the Timmins and Sudbury Boards of Education. During his career, he served as a board member of the Haileybury School of Mines. John also played an active role with The Retired Teachers of Ontario. After his retirement, John dedicated his time to his greenhouse and his new successful business selling plants. John will also be remembered for his lifelong enjoyment of curling. He served as President of the Sudbury Curling Club and in his retirement he established the popular Pensioner’s League at the Idylwylde Golf & Country Club. His dedication earned him the Northern Ontario Curling Association Volunteer Award in 2011. John’s knowledge on any topic seemed limitless and he always had a story to tell and an opinion to share. He was never short on words. He was an active member in his neighbourhood shaping the community especially around the growth and development of Robinson Playground in Sudbury. He enjoyed his sports and supported the Sudbury Wolves and attended many Briers and the Roar of the Rings. John was also a known handyman and his skills in this area were called upon often. His never-ending curiosity took him on camping excursions across the country and trips throughout the US, South Africa and Italy. John will be missed at Ice Chest Lake where he served as President of the Cottagers Association. He loved his summers at camp and on any given day, he could be found splitting wood or driving through the bush on his four wheeler scoping blueberry patches. John’s inspiration will be greatly missed by his six children: Gayle (Mark Lemieux) of London, Ontario; Janice (Ido Vettoretti) and Peter (Kathy Latva-Aro) of Sudbury; Allan (Suzanne Coloumbe) of Edmonton; Christine Strobele of Toronto and Cathy O’Hara of Bradford.   He was cherished by his 14 grandchildren: Carolyne, Darren (predeceased), Greg, Lisa, Laura, Andrea, Jennifer, Julia (Jeremy Chalut), Alex, Kyle (Robyn Geisler), Renee, Ryan, John and Liam and most recently his 3 great grandchildren: Cooper, Lillia and Payton. John is also survived by his two cousins in Timmins: Veronica and Mary Ann Sustar and a number of nieces and nephews. John’s family and their accomplishments were his proudest legacy. Visitation will be held at the Cooperative Funeral Home, 222 Lasalle Blvd, Sudbury on Sunday, March 16th at 2-5 and 7-9:30 p.m. There will be a Memorial Service celebrating John’s life on Monday, March 17th at 11 a.m. in the funeral home Chapel.

CORNER, Robert Bruce October 17, 1955 – December 4, 2013
It is with great sadness the family announces Rob’s passing on December 4, 2013 at McCausland Hospital, in Terrace Bay. Rob is originally from Pefferlaw, resided in Schreiber, and was also a long time resident of South Porcupine. Rob is predeceased by his father Peter Corner and many other loved ones. Rob is survived by his partner Sharon Hansen and his children Shawna (Yvan Letourneau), Kass (Amanda Arquette), his grandchildren Jerica, Kasey, Owen, and Clarke and the mother of his children Carole Yergeau. Rob is also survived by his mother Anna Mae Rex Graham (Bob), his sisters Sabrina (Dave) and Shawna and his brother Scott (Sandra), also a large Gaudreau step family and numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
Rob graduated from Northern College in 2001 from the Millwright-Mechanic program. He was a Jack of all trades and worked in many different areas. There was nothing he couldn’t fix, laboring over a job until it was done right. Rob enjoyed the great outdoors, fishing, hunting and “off-roading” with his tunes cranked. He had a contagious smile, always the life of the party keeping everyone laughing. As much as he would never admit it he was a worrier and would over think almost everything. A stubborn man in his ways with a heart of gold, loved his family, friends, children, grandchildren and pets dearly. Rob was a loving man and he will be missed by all who knew him.
Family to receive friends at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 287, 46 Legion Dr, South Porcupine on Saturday December 28, 2013 from 4:00-8:00 p.m. to share memories and refreshments. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory to the Timmins or Terrace Bay Humane Society would be appreciated.
