Michael George Clark a.k.a. Chaos
1951 -2017

Passed away quite peacefully on Saturday, March 4, 2017, after a brief, but fierce battle with pneumonia and bacterial meningitis.
Mike was much loved, as son, brother, uncle, friend. His unconventional lifestyle illustrated his true character. He cared nothing for material gains, but cared deeply for his friends and family. He was known for his warm smile and his exuberance for life. A supremely talented musician, songwriter and painter, he devoted much of his time to these works. His creativity fed him, he had little use for food!
He is survived by his mother, Maxine, his brother Steve, three nieces, one nephew and countless friends. Many thanks to all who brought their love into the room in his final days.
Godspeed, Chaos. The world is a far richer place for having known you. May you finally get your colours right.

Stanley Oliver Jones, 100, of Ottawa, Ontario passed away at the Ottawa General Hospital January 28, 2017. Their professional care, compassion and kindness are truly excellent in the palliative field and were a great comfort to himself and his family. Born in Cardiff, Wales to Emlyn and Violet (Oliver) Jones, he and his wife, May Joyce Jones, became Canadian citizens in 1957. They were married for almost 65 years and she predeceased him in 2010, living to almost 90.
Stanley loved life and laughter and made the best of every situation. He worked as a teacher for the Protestant School Board of Montreal for most of his working life. He taught geography, latin (“aquila non capit muscas” he once offered as words of wisdom to his son, “an eagle does not catch flies”) and, his greatest passion, was teaching computer science. He enjoyed genealogy, playing chess, watching comedies on TV, skiing, cycling, swimming, steam and model trains, whale watching and, most of all, his family. A particular love was his grandchildren, Trevor, Byron and Melanie from his son Russell and, his wife, Julia Sandquist. He liked to say that: “children are the investment and grandchildren are the dividends”.
He is also survived by his son Peter of Montreal, sister Dorothy Reynolds of Cardiff, Wales, his nephews, Oliver Reynolds, Blake Reynolds and his wife Linda (Robson), their children, Mark and Helen, Mark’s children Freddie and Beatrix, Helen’s children Ellie, Joshua and Noah. Stan’s niece, Juliet Reynolds in Cardiff, her children Tabitha and Emma, Tabitha’s child Reuben and Emma’s child Leon as well as in-laws Betty, Stuart, Vanessa and Kirk, now in Australia and in-laws across Canada and Europe.
His sense of humour and delight in bringing a smile to friends, family and acquaintances will be missed.
A remembrance meeting will be held on Saturday, March 18, 2017 in the activities Room at Villagia in the Glebe, 100 Isabella Street, Ottawa, ON K1S 1V5 at 2:00pm.

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand; one belonged to him, and the other the Lord.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life.

      This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it. “Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, you’d walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why when I needed you the most you would leave me.” 

The Lord replied, “ My precious, precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During those times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was that I carried you.”
