DENURE, Frederick Calvin
Died July 22, 2003, age 70, in Lindsay, Ontario, his home since Fred DENURE was a remarkable, generous friend to many and a devoted husband of forty-six years to his one and only Dorothy Ann. His drive, energy and sense of humour will be greatly missed by all who knew him, especially his children Raymond, Steven and Susan. His nine grandchildren have lost a bright spark in their lives
a grandfather whose support and inspiring curiosity showed them that the world is what you make of it.
Fred, founder of DeNure Tours and numerous other business ventures, was an intrepid, inquisitive traveler who always had his eye open for an opportunity or an interesting conversation. Travel was a vocation, but his greatest pleasure was trips taken with his family and good Friends.
The family would like to thank Doctors READY, PERRY, MOULTON and DAVY and the staff at Sunnybrook and St. Michael's Hospital. A very special thanks to the second floor medical south nurses at the Ross Memorial Hospital who ensured that Fred was well looked after in his final days.

MacPHERSON, Harvey Alexander
Died October 16th at Saint Mary's Hospital in Kitchener, Ontario. Harvey celebrated his 90th birthday earlier this year at The Village of Winston Park where he was a resident. Born on March 2, 1913 in Macton, Ontario to John and Elsie (née REAMAN) MacPHERSON, Harvey was the eldest of three children. His brothers Ron and Grant predeceased him. In the 1930's Harvey learned to fly, and after a stint of bush pilot work in northern Ontario with Algoma Airways, became the chief flying instructor with the Kitchener Waterloo Airport. When war broke out, the Kitchener Waterloo Airport was contracted to open a flight training school in Goderich for the Empire Flight Training Program. In 1940, Harvey went to Goderich as Chief Flying Instructor and trained hundreds of pilots for the Commonwealth. Before leaving, Harvey married Elizabeth Jean Gartshore LAING, the daughter of Reverend A.A. and Marion LAING. Harvey met Elizabeth when her father was the minister at Linwood United Church where he attended. During the war, Harvey joined the Royal Canadian Air Force. At war's end he took a job with Dominion Rubber (now Uniroyal) in Kitchener. In 1958, Harvey took over the operation of Caya Fabrics Ltd. and later became its sole owner. He managed the business until the early 1990's when he retired. Harvey, Elizabeth (Betty) and their family were active members of Trinity United Church in Kitchener for many years. Betty passed away in 1975 after a long battle with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. Harvey is survived by his children; Doug MacPHERSON (wife Kathy MacPHERSON,) Barbara BUTLER (husband Bob,) and Bruce MacPHERSON (wife Catherine SCHULER,) and four grandchildren Jason and Brett BUTLER and Matthew and John MacPHERSON, all of Toronto. He is survived also by his friend and companion, Jean CAYA. The funeral service will be held at the Ratz-Bechtel Funeral Home at 621 King Street West, Kitchener on Saturday, October 18, 2003 at 2: 30 p.m. Visitation will be at the funeral home prior to the service starting at 1: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donation in memory of Harvey to your favourite charity would be appreciated.
