He was Mr. Sauble Beach
Community mourns Dan KIRKLAND, a tireless fundraiser and its unofficial mayor
By Bill HENRY, Sun Times Staff, Page A1
Sauble Beach has lost a tireless charity fundraiser and community booster.
Dan KIRKLAND, 51, was South Bruce Peninsula's Volunteer of The Year last year. He died suddenly at his home on Main Street Wednesday morning.
Mr. KIRKLAND was seen almost daily riding his bicycle around town, shoveling snow and cutting lawns for seniors, or selling raffle tickets downtown for a long list of charities. He was known unofficially as the mayor of Sauble Beach, his friend Mark WUNDERLICH said Thursday.
"He's just one of the fixtures, one of the main characters that made Sauble Beach Sauble Beach. There's no other way to put it," WUNDERLICH said.
Mr. KIRKLAND was raised in Kitchener and came to Sauble as a young man, living since then in the family cottage not far from the community's landmark water slide, his cousin Jay KIRKLAND said.
He would have been in KIRKLAND's Sauble grocery store this week selling crocuses for charity, where the store has set up a display to continue the charity sales in his honour. His cousin's goal was to eventually raise $100,000 for various charities and had passed the $80,000 mark, KIRKLAND said.
"He was here at least two to three days a week selling tickets for whatever organization was raising funds at the time. He's done an awful lot," KIRKLAND said. "He's going to be missed."
Mr. KIRKLAND would often sell his raffle tickets at a local bank or at a prominent spot on the beach. He attended council sessions, helped at pancake breakfasts and worked the gates at ball tournaments and other sporting events.
"Any events that were going on, Dan was there somewhere. He just took a real old-fashioned interest in the betterment of his community," said WUNDERLICH, who worked with his friend at numerous chamber of commerce and community functions.
"He was an incredible conscientious' worker. He took his time but the job was done the way it was supposed to be done," WUNDERLICH said.
"Everybody at Sauble Beach loved Dan and respected Dan. He was one of the main fixtures at Sauble Beach and Sauble Beach right now is flying at half mast. He was a good friend of mine and he was a great guy and an asset to the community and we have truly lost one of our own."
Mr. KIRKLAND's Friends may call at the Downs and son Funeral Home in Hepworth today from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. A funeral will be held Saturday at 11 a.m. from Zion Amabel United Church in Sauble Beach.

FOURNIE, Georgina (née CORRIVEAU)
Lived a glorious life. From her early days growing up in St. Joseph's, Ontario, to her 60 years in London, Ontario, she lived life to its fullest. Born May 11th, 1930, she peacefully passed after a very rapid bout with cancer on November 10th, 2005. Although sadly missed, we are grateful for the fact that she raised four wonderful children. She is predeceased by our dad Morley, her true love, who passed away on April 14th, 1987 and her parents Ed and Bertha CORRIVEAU. She is survived by sisters Yvonne JEFFERY (and husband Pete, who was like a brother) of St. Joseph and Marie WILD of Exeter.

Georgina always took great delight in having her family around her. Mom always laughed to the point of tears when we'd get together. "I have four crazy kids" she always said and marvelled at the next generation coming up. Throughout this tough period, her family was at her side as she was for us throughout our lives. She was and will continue to be an inspiration and model for all of us. Thank you Mom, we love you! To her many Friends who shared her life through the Catholic church, playing cards, dancing, travelling and of course the Legion (Victory Branch), we thank you. Although a short stay at University Hospital, we appreciate the support from the nursing team. Also a special thanks to the two outstanding professionals: Dr. Matt FELTHAM who showed compassion in our family's time of need and to Dr. Valerie SCHULTZ of the Palliative Care Pain Team who ensured mom's comfort.

John Garfield KIRKPATRICK
By Mary CALDER, Helen KIRKPATRICK, Margaret KIRKPATRICK, Monday, January 3, 2005 - Page A14
Son, brother, husband, father, uncle, friend, accountant, tennis player, volunteer. Born February 16, 1950 in London, Ontario Died October 30, 2004, in Ottawa, of cancer, aged 54.
John KIRKPATRICK was our brother, the only son of Eileen and Garfield KIRKPATRICK of London. We grew up in a close-knit household that highly valued extended family. We regularly travelled to Mount Forest, Ontario, to spend weekends and holidays with our Dad's family. One of our happiest childhood memories is taking The Canadian to Alberta to visit with our Mother's family, a bold adventure for the time! John was the quiet one at family gatherings, but he was an active player whether in canasta tournaments at Grandma's on Saturday nights, on the family Christmas "human pyramid" team or on camping trips to parks across Canada with his children, his nephews and nieces, sisters and brothers-in-law.
Growing up, John spent every summer at our Uncle Jim's farm in Mount Forest. He cherished this move from an urban, sister-dominated world in London to the rural, male world where he helped with farm chores and even had his own calves -- a boy's dream world! The lifelong bond between John and his cousin, Mervyn, was formed during these happy summers.
Dad was so proud when John became an accountant, following in his own footsteps. When Dad became ill during one busy income tax season, John took time from his own accounting work to return to London to run Dad's business.
John's life was blessed when he met and married Hélène PICARD and was welcomed into that close-knit family. He worked to become proficient at French, the first language of his in-laws. He was an important member of their family, and ours.
John's three children, Kevin, Nora and Lynn, were precious to him. It was especially hard for John when, as a young father, he developed multiple sclerosis and was not even strong enough to lift his young son. John battled with everything he had. Years later, when facing lymphoma, he told his wife, Hélène, that he had negotiated a deal with God at that time. He asked for three years, time enough to see what kind of person his new daughter, Nora, might become.
The multiple sclerosis went into remission, a remission that lasted the rest of his life. John credited his fighting spirit to our mother. Her belief, that there is a silver lining behind every cloud, helped him to pursue that silver lining. Her positive attitude and commitment to health and fitness inspired his own quest for a healthy life.
The energy that John invested in becoming healthy gave him the gift of many years. During those 20 years, he spent endless hours with his children -- cycling, roller-blading, playing ball, ping-pong, and cards, travelling, camping, reading, and cooking. He modelled the healthy lifestyle he wanted them to emulate; he saw them become adults. As well, John worked diligently as a volunteer for the multiple sclerosis society. He was a valued employee, a loyal friend, an active member of his tennis club.
This past summer, John faced another battle: lymphoma. Again, John fought with everything he had. He believed he would make it and his family believed he would, but it could not be so. Surrounded by family -- his wife, children, sisters and in-laws he died on October 30. The last words he heard were Nora's, "We love you, Dad." He closed his eyes and passed away.
John was a special person. Along with his many successes and celebrations, he also faced trials, sadness and difficulty. He met challenges with a positive attitude and looked for the silver lining. John was a good person, a gentle man, a fighter -- and a special brother.
Mary, Helen, and Margaret are John's sisters.
