FARMER, Kenneth Pentin (July 26th 1912 to January 12th 2005)
Born in Westmount Québec, son of the late Nora (PENTIN) and John FARMER. Brother of Madeleine and Florence and the late Eric and Bud. Ken was the much loved husband of the late Mildred Lorayne STRACHAN (1994) for 49 years, and adored and proud father and father in law of Howard (Alice), Ian (Sue), Cindy, and Pam (Tom LEWIS.) He will be greatly missed by his eight grandchildren Dan, Sarah, Colin, Laurence, Iain, Geoffrey, David, and Michael. He was also uncle to many nieces and nephews. Soon after his birth, Ken's family moved to Ste. Anne-de-Bellevue. Here, Ken could be seen spending every spare moment playing tennis in the summer and hockey in the winter on the local rink or the frozen ice of Lac St. Louis. Ken studied at McGill University (Bachelor of Commerce 1934), and received his C.A. in 1937, after which he joined the firm of McDonald Currie until retirement in 1974. It was at McGill that Ken became a hockey legend, where, with the McGill Redmen he skillfully won many championships. (McGill Sports Hall of Fame 1999). In 1936 while playing for the Victorias, he was asked to join the Canadian Olympic Hockey team which won the Silver medal in Garmich, Germany. When the war broke out in 1939, "the Major" proudly served with the Royal Montreal Regiment and later with the Manitoba Dragoons until May of 1945. His children and grandchildren will always remember "Grandpa's" wartime stories. From 1953 to 1961 Ken was President of the Canadian Olympic Association and later President of the Commonwealth Games. He and Lorayne were fortunate enough to travel the world through his association with these games. In 1980, Ken was made a member of the Order of Canada celebrating his life long contribution to amateur sport. Over the years, Dad also worked diligently for such charities as The Quebec Society for Disabled Children and the Commissionaires. Honor, truth, and respect, were the values Dad always lived by and, by example, passed on to his children and grandchildren. Ken shared many happy times with his Friends from afar, Montreal West, Lake McDonald, The Laurentian Lodge Club and The University Club of Montreal. Unpretentious to the end, we are certainly going to miss you Dad/Grandpa. Farewell "LeClou", "Mighty Midget". We love you. Funeral service will be held Monday, January 17th at 2 p.m., St Philip's Anglican Church, 25 Brock Avenue North, Montreal West, Québec. In Lieu of flowers, if desired, donations may be made to The Quebec Society for Disabled Children or another charity of your choice.

DAVIDSON, Mary Janet (ARMSTRONG)
Mary Janet ARMSTRONG was born November 23, 1911 on a farm on Kennedy Road, near Unionville, Ontario. She died on March 16, 2005 at Memorial Hospital in Mission, British Columbia. She was the daughter of the late Leslie ARMSTRONG and Charlotte LENNOX dear sister of Margaret PRITCHARD and the late Robert ARMSTRONG beloved wife of the late Bruce DAVIDSON; loving mother of Jean and her husband, Allen AICKEN; a much-loved 'Auntie Mary' to a host of nieces and nephews. She will be greatly missed by many Friends and relatives of all ages. She was a mentor, church and charity volunteer, and quiet benefactor of good causes in her local community and abroad.
The deaths of her parents at a young age gave her a sensitivity to vulnerable children. Teaching at Birch Cliff Heights and Frankland Schools, she nurtured and nourished many struggling pupils in depression-era and wartime Toronto. Marriage brought a return to farm life, on the Davidson homestead in Agincourt then on the farm in Stouffville. She was active in the Presbyterian Churches in Agincourt and Stouffville, in Women's Institute, in 4-H, and many other causes.
After never living further than 15 miles from her birthplace, she undertook the big adventure, at age 92, of moving to Maple Ridge, British Columbia to live with Jean and Allen. She embraced this courageously, and enjoyed looking at the mountains, the Fraser River, the farm animals in the fields, and the cat on the porch.
Her final illness came suddenly and her departure from this world was gentle.
A memorial service was held on Wednesday, March 30, 2005 at St. John the Evangelist Anglican Church, Whonnock, British Columbia, the Rev David Findley- Price officiating.
Private interment at Knox Cemetery, Agincourt, the Reverend Kathryn STRACHAN officiating.
A memorial service will be held at Unionville Presbyterian Church, 600 Village Parkway, Unionville, on Saturday, April 30, 2005 at 1: 30 p.m., the Reverend Gordon TIMBERS officiating. The family will receive Friends from 12 noon at the church.
No flowers please; memorial donations may be made to Presbyterian World Service and Development, 50 Wynford Dr., Toronto, Ontario M3C 1J7.

DAVIDSON, Mary Janet (née ARMSTRONG)
Was born November 23, 1911 on a farm on Kennedy Road, near Unionville, Ontario. She died on March 16, 2005 at Memorial Hospital in Mission, British Columbia. She was the daughter of the late Leslie ARMSTRONG and Charlotte LENNOX; dear sister of Margaret PRITCHARD and the late Robert ARMSTRONG; beloved wife of the late Bruce DAVIDSON loving mother of Jean and her husband Allen AICKEN; a much-loved 'Auntie Mary' to a host of nieces and nephews. She will be greatly missed by many Friends and relatives of all ages. She was a mentor, church and charity volunteer, and quiet benefactor of good causes in her local community and abroad. The deaths of her parents at a young age gave her a sensitivity to vulnerable children. Teaching at Birch Cliff Heights and Frankland Schools, she nurtured and nourished many struggling pupils in depression-era and wartime Toronto. Marriage brought a return to farm life, on the Davidson homestead in Agincourt, then on the farm in Stouffville. She was active in the Presbyterian Churches in Agincourt and Stouffvllle, in Women's Institute, in 4-H, and many other causes. After never living further than 15 miles from her birthplace, she undertook the big adventure, at age 92, of moving to Maple Ridge, British Columbia to live with Jean and Allen. She embraced this courageously, and enjoyed looking at the mountains, the Fraser River, the farm animals in the fields, and the cat on the porch. Her final illness came suddenly and her departure from this world was gentle. A memorial service was held on Wednesday, March 30, 2005 at St. John the Evangelist Anglican Church, Whonnock, British Columbia, the Reverend David Findley-Price officiating. Private interment at Knox Cemetery, Agincourt. the Reverend Kathryn STRACHAN officiating. A memorial service will be held at Unionville Presbyterian Church, 600 Village Parkway, Unionville, on Saturday, April 30, 2005 at 1: 30 p.m., the Reverend Gordon TIMBERS officiating. The family will receive Friends from 12 noon at the church. No flowers please memorial donations may be made to Presbyterian World Service and Development, 50 Wynford Dr., Toronto, Ontario M3C 1J7.

--In loving memory of a dear brother and uncle, Harold, who passed away March 1, 1980.
He meant so much to us
But nothing we can say
Can tell the sadness in our hearts
As we think of him each day.

He lived his life for those he loved
And those he loved, remember.
