FITZPATRICK, Leo Francis Jr.
Peacefully at Saint Mary's Hospital in Kitchener on October 13, 2005 at the age of 85. Beloved husband of Teddy (Edythe) (nee DWYER) for 58 years. Lovingly remembered by his sons Lee and wife Marjorie of Phillipsburg, Dana and Suzie of Blair, Don of Toronto, and Larry and Lauri of Innisfill. Predeceased by his brother John and his sister-in-law Mary; his wife's brother, Owen DWYER and his wife's brother-In-law, Jim DEEGAN; by his nephews Michael and Mark DEEGAN and niece Leslie DEEGAN. Survived by his brother, Bob and his wife Lady Anne, Norman (Father FITZPATRICK) and his 'favourite' sister, Elaine and her incorruptible husband Tom. Cherished grandfather of Buck, Caitlin, Derek, Brodie, Jada, Dylan and Quinn. He will be remembered fondly by all his nieces and nephews. Leo graduated from the University of Toronto in 1942 where he majored in Business and Finance and minored in billiards and squash. After failing the eye exam in an attempt to join the Navy he traveled to Washington D.C.- having memorized the eye chart - and became a Lieutenant in the U.S. Navy. He saw action in the Pacific at Guam, and the Gilberts on the destroyer U.S.S. Brown, and officered the ship through a typhoon that left the majority of officers by their bunks. Upon his return from World War 2, Leo reunited with his family, happily went to work and kept an eye open for "who fits with Fitz". In the spring of 1946 he met Teddy - his future bride, life partner and absolute best friend. They wed November 29, 1947. In the early '30's, his father, Leo Sr., brought the Flexible Shaft Co. (later known as the Sunbeam Corp of Chicago, Illinois) to Toronto. Following in his father's footsteps, Leo Jr. became Vice-President of Marketing for the Sunbeam Corp. He later moved to Waterloo where he became Divisional Manager of Marketing for Electrohome - retaining his bowtie. He later started his own business, Leasing Unlimited, in Waterloo. His sons remember him fondly at their early morning Outside hockey games; when he would arrive at the cottage on Friday nights on Lake Simcoe; when traveling with the family in the Continental to Washington with Grandma; when he would play golf with them at The Father and Three Sons; when golfing with Uncle Norman who sang, "To Dream the Impossible Dream, To Play the Impossible Lie" at The Seigniory Club; when skiing on the 'Burn' at Snowmass; and when he would make all their Friends feel comfortable at "300". They, as well as all who knew him, will remember his constant good humour. He was a gentleman. He was a class act and a hard act to follow. The family will receive Friends at Ratz-Bechtel Funeral Home and Cremation Centre, 621 King St. W., Kitchener on Sunday, October 16, 2005 from 2-4 and 7-9. With Prayers at 8: 45 p.m. A celebration of his life will be held at Our Lady of Lourdes Roman Catholic Church, 173 Lourdes Street, Waterloo on Monday, October 17, 2005 at 10: 30 a.m. As expressions of sympathy, donations to the Alzheimer Society of Kitchener/Waterloo would be gratefully appreciated by the family. The family would like to thank the staff at The Westmount and Saint Mary's Hospital for their care of Dad.

DEETH, Hazel Evelyn (née WHIMSTER) (1912-2005)
Passed away peacefully on Sunday, September 4th, 2005 at 'The Victorian' retirement residence (1773 Feltham Rd), Victoria, British Columbia in her 93rd year. She will be greatly missed by Wilf, her loving husband of 65 treasured years and by her two sons, Paul and his wife Carol (Oakville, Ontario) and Alan (Vancouver). Hazel was the youngest of six children of the late Dr. Murdo A. WHIMSTER and Margaret Ann KIRK of Hamiota, Manitoba. In her 20's, she moved to Toronto where she met Wilf. They began their family in Ottawa, and later moved to Vancouver where they resided for over 40 years. Later, she enjoyed an invigorating life for 15 years on Vancouver Island. She took every opportunity to explore all there was to offer. She made many Friends over the years, both in Ontario and British Columbia, being active in the United Church Women and Couples Clubs of the United Church of Canada, and as a member and organist of a chapter of the Eastern Star. Her talents were numerous in the arts and crafts: music, painting and needlework to mention a few. She was a caregiver of the finest kind to family and to Friends, using her skills as a good listener to assist those who needed a boost. Hazel was always open to developing new Friendships while still retaining long standing ones. Humour was to her, a necessary ingredient for a happy life. Special thanks go to the staff at 'The Victorian' retirement residence who made the last 5 years of her life very enjoyable.
In Victoria, a Memorial Tea will take place on Friday, September 23rd, 2005 at 'The Victorian' residence (Feltham Rd) at 2 p.m. (250-477-1912). In Vancouver, a memorial service will be conducted at Ryerson United Church (45th Ave. and Yew St.) on Monday, September 26th, 2005 at 2 p.m. (604-266-5377) where her ashes will be placed in the Memorial Garden.
