SMITH, Robert " Bob" J. E.
So peacefully in the loving arms of his cherished wife and best friend Rhea JOY, and surrounded by the love and support of family and Friends, Bob SMITH left us to embark on a new journey January 8th, 2005.
Missing him yet celebrating his ascension are many. His beloved Rhea and children Kerrie and Bepin ZEKA, Li and Dan PRESSEY and Scott & Gloria SMITH will continue to put into practice the lessons learned through his boundless unconditional love, guidance and mentorship. With his love in their hearts forever, his grandchildren, Sarah, Kevin, Niki and Caroline will hold close their memories of storytelling, long walks and conversations about nature, play times and endless snuggles. His sister Evelyn WATRAL will always cherish the strong Friendship that bound them and their families throughout the years and mutual support dating from rural Wardsville, Ontario to present day. He spent many of his most treasured times with his nieces and nephews, Susan and Steve SIZE, Carl and Laura WATRAL and Rob WATRAL. With years of fond memories they will continue to be mainstays of care and support which bind a family together. A large extended family of cousins, sisters and brothers in-law, nieces, nephews and their children can be assured that Uncle Bob cherished our reunions and revelled in watching the children (and adults) play while he caught up on everyone's latest news.
Amongst the many family and Friends welcoming Bob to heaven are his Mother and Father Margaret and Glenn SMITH, Mother and Father-in-law Caroline and Harold THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and Brother in-law Walter (Pop) WATRAL. In addition to being a tireless advocate, volunteer, lay minister, faithful and enthusiastic supporter of his church and helper to anyone in the community in greater need than he, Bob was immensely proud of his career at the once Huron and Erie Trust Company, later to become Canada Trust. Starting as a bank teller, Bob rapidly rose through the ranks to become a most respected senior executive. After his “retirement” he utilized his accumulated professional experience to assist his niece Sue at Thorne Property Management Ltd. Following that he embarked upon a third career; that of caregiver, friend, music teacher and chauffeur to his grandchildren.
Special thanks to Dick and Kathy WARREN for their selfless contributions to our family's healing and Pastor Paul BROWNING for his visits and support. To our fellow campers at Sugarbush Campground, Bayfield, Ontario, our family extends our gratitude on behalf of Bob for the many years of friend-ship and fun. To his Trinity United Church family, it was important to Bob that you know how much he appreciated you and that he felt all of your prayers. The caring staff of the Oncology Unit, London Health Sciences Centre Westminster Campus 7th floor, Tower 2 has indelibly etched in our minds what giving is all about.
At his request cremation has taken place and a celebration of Bob's time here will be held at Trinity United Church, 76 Doulton Street (at Hale St.) in London, Ontario, on Saturday, January 15th at 1 p.m. with Pastor Paul BROWNING officiating. A reception will be held in the lower level of the church following the service, in the hope that family and Friends may gath-er for a time of fellowship and remem-brance. Robert James Emiel SMITH wishes that in lieu of flowers, donations in his memory be made to Trinity United Church. Arrangements entrusted to Needham Funeral Service, 520 Dundas Street London.

CLENDENNING, Thomas Gerald, P.Eng.
Peacefully on Tuesday, December 6, 2005 at Eagle Terrace in Newmarket, Ontario, surrounded by his wife and three children. Gerald was born July 26, 1918, and was the third of four sons of Campbell and Anna May (McNEELY) CLENDENNING, on a farm near Gananoque, Ontario. A graduate of Queen's University (1941), he enlisted in the Royal Canadian Corps of Engineers and served in the invasion of Italy and the liberation of the Netherlands. He married Evelyn Marie PRESTON of Portland, Ontario in England on November 14, 1943. After the war he joined Ontario Hydro and retired from its Research Division in 1983, having used his expertise in the science of concrete engineering to work on nuclear waste disposal, and as a private consultant, on the construction of the Toronto City Hall, Trent University and the C.N. Tower. He was a founding member of the Canadian Concrete Institute. Gerry enjoyed summers on Rideau Lake for many years. In 1972, the family relocated from Etobicoke to a mini-farm near Barrie, Ontario, where they stayed for 27 years. After suffering a stroke, Gerry became a resident of Eagle Terrace in Newmarket, whose fine staff gave him warm and understanding care during his 5 years there. In retirement, his favourite pastimes included planting the kitchen garden, driving for the Red Cross, analyzing current events and the stock market, and partnering Evelyn at the bridge table. He loved limericks, peanuts and small dogs. His intellect, sense of humour and gentle nature will be fondly remembered by Evelyn, Anne (Ken ROBERTS) of King City, Bob (Christine) of Sudbury, and Linda (Colin CHALMERS) of Stony Plain, Alberta. He also leaves his brother Don (Carolyn) of San Jose, California; seven grandchildren, Will, Virginia and Mary Roberts, and Rob, James, Anna and Grace CLENDENNING; his nieces, nephews and cousins in the CLENDENNING, McNeely, Thomson and Spence families; and many beloved in-laws and Friends cherished over his 87 years. He was predeceased by his brothers Leonard (Thunder Bay) and Kenneth (La Jolla, California). Cremation has taken place and memorial arrangements to follow are entrusted to the Roadhouse and Rose Funeral Home, Newmarket (905-895-6631). The family would be thankful for donations in his memory to the Canadian Red Cross or to Queen's University in lieu of flowers.
