LEAKER, David Thomas (September 11, 1926-July 6, 2005)
David Thomas LEAKER of Edmonton passed away peacefully with family at his side on July 6, 2005 after a long struggle recovering from heart surgery. He was in his 79th year.
Beloved husband, partner, soul mate and best friend of Shirley LEAKER (née BAILLIE,) they celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in June 2005. His life and marriage remain an inspiration.
David leaves behind a world enriched by his efforts in business, in Friendship, in community service and most especially in his love and dedication to his family.
Left behind not merely to grieve in sadness but to celebrate and cherish a life well lived are daughter Cathy LEAKER and her partner Amy PHILLIPS of Great Neck, Long Island, U.S.A.; son Richard LEAKER and his wife Sandra FOY of Edmonton and son Michael LEAKER and his wife Karen FRUETEL and his three beloved grandchildren, Sarah, Ben and Hannah, all of London, Ontario. He taught us the true meaning of generosity, commitment and honesty.
He is survived by his sister Gwen HATTER, and brother John LEAKER, and will also be missed by his sisters-in-law Elsie LEAKER and Joan FINDLAY and brother-in-law Gerald HATCH; together with many nieces and nephews.
Too numerous to mention, David touched so many people through work, volunteerism, family and Friendship. His retirement years were given over to extensive community service and he was proud of his work with The Sir Winston Churchill Society (Edmonton) the Heritage Sites committee, Edmonton historical board and the Edmonton Advisory Board of the Salvation Army, to list but a few.
A private cremation and family gathering are planned. A memorial celebration for family and Friends, to be held in London, Ontario, will be announced at a later date.
If desired, in lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests that memorial donations be made to The Healing Garden Fund, c/o The University Hospital Foundation, 8440 112 Street, Edmonton, Alberta T6G 2B7 or to the charity of your choice.
Appel Funeral Homes/Central Memorial Chapel, 10530 116 Street, Edmonton, Alberta T5H 3L7.

ALLEN, Robert Benedict
Born September 21, 1911 in Chatham, New Brunswick, died peacefully in Mississauga on April 2, 2005, our beloved husband and father Ben ALLEN, aged 93 and a half years. Ben is survived by his wife of fifty years, Mary Catherine, née SHILLITO, and his two children, James and Laura, his adored grandchild Richard FOY, and his son-in-law Errol FOY. The son of Robert ALLEN and Catherine Ann McEACHERN of Chatham and latterly Saskatoon, Ben was the last surviving member of a family of nine. He is also survived by seven nieces and nephews and twenty-three grand nieces and nephews with further descendents. Ben's ancestors first came to Canada in 1772, and his family had extensive connections to the Roman Catholic Church in the Maritime Provinces of Canada and previously in Scotland. His family were proud Jacobites. Two notable relatives were Bishop Angus McEACHERN, the first Bishop of Charlottetown and a pioneer of the Catholic church in the Maritimes, and Monsignor Benedict MURDOCH, Ben's godfather and for whom he was named, a famous priest, author and Canadian Expeditionary Force chaplain during World War One. Ben graduated from the University of Saskatchewan in 1936 with the highest honours as a Bachelor of Science in Geology. He was also a Professional Engineer. He worked as a geologist until his gradual retirement in his seventies, latterly with Gulf Minerals Canada. He loved the intellectual challenges posed by his chosen profession. Ben served his country and the cause of Freedom throughout World War Two. As a Captain in the Canadian Army, he commanded soldiers stationed in the fields of Kent during the Battle of Britain. Later, he joined the Royal Navy and spent the latter half of the war as a staff officer in the Admiralty. Ben ALLEN was known for his kindness and fairness to all, for his unassuming nature, for his natural personal dignity and grace, and for his intellect and culture. He loved animals and children, with a special love for all cats. He loved reading and listening to music, particularly Mozart. He was fascinated by science and by the complexities of military and geopolitical history. He was an Anglophile in the best sense of the word. Although he was by nature conservative, he firmly believed that the favour of fortune or birth carried with it as many responsibilities as it did privileges. He wholeheartedly despised those who used power and position of any sort to advantage against the less fortunate and believed in justice for all. He hated bullies. We miss our dear Husband and Dad very much every day. We believe he is in a better place but we will always carry him here in our hearts. Friends may attend the Requiem Mass held at St. Patrick's Church, 921 Flagship Drive in Mississauga (Tomken between Dundas and Bloor) at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, April 6. The service will be followed by interment at the Assumption Cemetery, 6933 Tomken Road in Mississauga (east corner of Tomken and Derry Road). In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Oakville Humane Society or to the Alzheimer Society of Peel. For further information or to arrange delivery of flowers, please contact Lee Funeral Home 905-826-1148. We are most grateful for your caring.
