COLLINS--In loving memory of our dear son Brent (aka Woolley Bear) who was
taken suddenly January 20, 1989.
Please don't cry because I'm gone
For I am just "away."
I did not die and never will
I'm with you every day.
It's true that I have left the earth
And live in Spirit here
With a peace and love I can't explain
I'm happy, have no fear.
Who I was, I still am now
Even better than before
Heaven holds such beauty here
With mountains, trees and more.
Please don't cry, just speak of me
The way you used to do.
Make our memories happy ones
That hug and comfort you.
Remember me with happiness
Don't grieve because I'm gone.
In Heaven I am growing still
And my life continues on.
Please don't cry because I share
All you say and do.
In every moment of every day,
My love is with you, too.
Forever loved and missed, Mom, Dad, Pam and Phil and family, Craig and
Melissa and family.

The special things he used to say,
The many things he did for us,
In his own and unique way.

And a heart that was purer than gold,
To those who knew him and loved him,
His memory will never grow old.

PUTTOCK, Nigel W., M.A., P.Eng.
Died peacefully at home in Milton on Thursday, March 16, 2006 at age 79 after a lengthy battle with Olivopontocerebellar Atrophy. Survived by Babs (neé Barbara Ann BUGLER) the love of his life for over 56 years, children Shirley REABURN (John,) Roger, Pamela GRAY/GREY (Dave), Carol (Gary WALKER), grandchildren Geoffrey READY (Jolán), Gillian COLLINS (Kirby), Leigh Ann FUNDERBURG (Harry), James GRAY/GREY, Andy GRAY/GREY, Christopher PUTTOCK and Eric PUTTOCK and great-grandchildren Nathanael READY, Matthew FUNDERBURG, Owen READY and Jeremy READY. Nigel is also survived by his brother Gerald PUTTOCK of Wales and sister-in-law Jane WALLACE (Ian) of England. Predeceased by son-in-law Doug READY. son of Eric C. PUTTOCK and Mary Wilson COOK, Nigel was born in Horsham, Sussex in 1927, educated at Oundle School, Northamptonshire and Clare College, Cambridge. After serving with the Royal Air Force and Royal Air Force Vol. Reserve 1946-54 and beginning his career with Transparent Paper Ltd, he emigrated to Canada with his bride and growing family in 1957. Here his family and career thrived as he spent the next 20 years in management positions in the building materials manufacturing industry. He was president of Westroc Industries, Director of British Plasterboard, and served as a director of the National Home Builders Association of Canada. Following this Nigel chose a less travelled career path in residential real estate in the Oakville area as agent, broker and business partner. A long time member of the Oakville Club, Nigel's interests in squash, tennis, boating and music kept him active and his Friends entertained. Nigel also applied his engineering experience and technical aptitude to model railroading. He will long be remembered for the family parties he and Babs hosted with games and activities for all ages. As his disease progressed Nigel lost his joie de vivre and slowly withdrew from social activities. Nigel and Babs have been residing quietly in Milton for several years. Following Nigel's wishes, he has been cremated and a memorial service and suitable send off will be arranged when his snowbird Friends have returned. Donations may be made in his memory to the Victorian Order of Nurses Canada Foundation.

Jack WALLACE, Soldier And Civil Defence Expert (1921-2006)
Tank commander who won the Military Cross in Italy became a driving force in the Civil Defence Organization, Canada's Cold War system of A-bomb shelters and warning sirens
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Ottawa -- Jack WALLACE was planning his next move in an Italian wood south of Termoli when an armour-piercing round bored through the back of his Sherman tank and destroyed his left leg.
The enemy projectile exploded in a blinding flash of light, killed his gunner and filled the tank with smoke and razor-sharp shrapnel on October 6, 1943. A second shell killed the driver.
Badly dazed, losing blood and with a suddenly useless limb, he knew he had to do something quickly. As a tank commander in charge of a troop of four tanks from the 12th Armoured Regiment (The Three Rivers Regiment), he thought only of his crew and how to save them. Realizing his Sherman was a sitting duck, he threw smoke grenades to hide his tank from the enemy and deny them a clear field of fire. At the same time, he yelled at his soldiers to get out.
Mr. WALLACE's quick thinking and concern for the lives of his men earned him a Military Cross, one of only nine awarded to officers of his regiment during the Second World War. "By his coolness and presence of mind while seriously wounded, and under heavy fire, he undoubtedly saved his crew from further injury while evacuating their tank," the citation said.
Radio operator Joe COLLINS, who was awarded the Military Medal for dragging Mr. WALLACE to safety, provided an eye-witness account. "If every officer had as much genuine guts as he showed then, we'd have a damn sight better army than we have. When a man can stand in the turret, with one leg dangling and useless and himself in agony, and still throw smoke grenades to give his crew a fighting chance to escape once they were out, the word I used was the only one which fits… guts," he wrote to Mr. WALLACE's father on December 9, 1943.
Two very senior British generals agreed. Within days, Gen. Sir Harold Alexander and Gen. Sir Bernard Montgomery had each approved Mr. WALLACE's immediate Military Cross. Soon afterward, the home front learned of Mr. WALLACE's "outstanding bravery" in a radio show broadcast across Canada to help sell war bonds. Described in the script as "a lone heroic figure wreathed in the swirl of grey smoke," the show featured his mother paying tribute to her eldest son, as well as to his brother Ted, a member of the 1st Hussars who was later killed.
At the time, the Three Rivers Regiment had been supporting a seaborne assault by the British Army at Termoli. Located a third of the way up Italy's east coast, Termoli was the Adriatic hinge of Germany's defence line along the Biferno River.
After sleeping fitfully through heavy shelling on the night of October 5-6, Mr. WALLACE and C Squadron started advancing after 7 a.m. "The plan of attack was for our squadron, led by No. 4 Troop and No. 5 Troop, to strike west and take over enemy-held territory. For a while, the only enemy we could see were infantry which we bypassed, or took on if they showed any anger," wrote Mr. WALLACE in a family memoir.
Elements of the squadron approached a wooded area that the 3rd County of London Yeomanry assured them was clear of Germans. The information could not have been more wrong. Two tanks from the 16th Panzer Division lay hidden in the copse and Mr. WALLACE was next in their sights. Seconds later, his tank was destroyed.
Fortunately, he had insisted that his men repeatedly practice evacuation drill while training in Britain and it paid off. "That day, they did it perfectly," he later said.
As he was being removed, he asked, "did they get the bastards?" Soon afterward, his leg was amputated above the knee and his three-month war was over.
Jack WALLACE grew up the eldest of three sons of a long-serving, non-commissioned officer who served in Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry. His father had fought in the First World War and stayed in the army afterward. "I suppose I was destined to become a soldier," he said.
He enlisted while still a teenager. During the summer of 1938, he was a batman, or servant, to Frank Worthington, the father of Canada's armoured forces. "During my spare time, having polished buttons, pressed uniforms, cleaned tents and latrines, I [went] to where the tanks were. I learned how to drive them before I could even drive a car."
At the time, the Canadian army still had horse-mounted cavalry regiments. Maj. Worthington pleaded for modern equipment, but what he got for his tank school at Camp Borden, Ontario, were 16 obsolete light tanks and 12 Carden-Loyd machine-gun carriers.
Fascinated by the possibilities of modern armoured warfare, Mr. WALLACE was the first man in line to join the tank school just three days after Canada declared war on Nazi Germany on September 10, 1939. After qualifying as a mechanic, he reached the dizzy heights of command when he was promoted to acting lance corporal.
Mr. WALLACE was commissioned as an officer in May of 1941, and posted to the Royal Canadian Dragoons. After reaching Britain in October, he transferred to the Three Rivers Regiment, where he joined his father, by then a major commanding A squadron.
After the war, Mr. WALLACE maintained his connection to the army. Frank Worthington, his old commander, had by then left the army to take up an appointment as Canada's civil defence co-ordinator and in 1949 he asked Mr. WALLACE to help set up the Civil Defence Organization. The Cold War had just started and Ottawa wanted to protect Canadians from nuclear war by organizing warning systems and building bomb shelters. Over the years, Mr. WALLACE became Canada's leading expert in civil emergency and disaster planning. In 1977, he took early retirement, worn out physically and mentally from promoting civil defence to a government that no longer cared.
He never forgot, though, his wartime role. On May 8, 2005, Mr. WALLACE attended the opening of the new Canadian War Museum in Ottawa. Wearing his medals and war-time beret, he rode all the way to the museum from the National War Memorial in his wheelchair.
John Francis WALLACE was born on August 12, 1921, in Esquimalt, British Columbia He died on March 7, in Ottawa. He was 85. He leaves his wife Cathy, his sons Ted and Peter, his daughters Ann, Jane and Caroline, and 14 grandchildren. He was predeceased by his brothers Ted and Doug.

COLLINS, Bill
By Tudor ROBINS, Page A18
Husband, father, grandfather, inventor, entrepreneur, golfer. Born June 28, 1915, in Ottawa. Died July 20 in Ottawa, of natural causes, aged 91.
Bill ("Bampy" to the family) possessed an overwhelming physicality. It started with his imposing height; he was easily 6-foot-4 and topped off with a shock of hair so thick and shiny, and so white, it made him loom even taller, not unlike the snow-covered peak of a mountain. His hands were huge, like shovels; fitting for a man who put things together for a living.
Big hands, yes, but soft, too. My husband, Tim, was initiated into our family by the incessant, rhythmic rubbing of my grandfather's big left hand on his back. He told us later that the tempo and pressure rose and fell following the ebb and flow of political and social debate in the room.
The big hands were also well-known for the famous "do-do" performed as an initiation to each new member of the family. They lifted tiny babies high in the air and rocked them in time to the deeply hummed "do-do-do-do." Bigger people in need of solace were snuggled against Bampy's barrel belly and swayed back and forth. Only in the months before he died did I learn my grandfather's signature tune had a title of its own: Waldteufel's Skater's Waltz.
Bill COLLINS was a visionary deeply rooted in tradition. He had the foresight to imagine that with increased exploration of the Far North would come the need for some kind of easily transportable shelter, quick to assemble, fast and simple to heat -- and so was born the Parcoll hut. He served as inventor, designer, marketer and sales force and built the huts in the yard behind the family home, filling orders one unit at a time.
While he was an innovator in business, he was a staunch traditionalist when it came to family matters. He married Evelyn COLLINS (ever after referred to as "my bride") when he was 22 and they were in their 69th year of marriage when he died. He was known for his great speeches at family gatherings, most of which revolved around the pride he felt in having such a large and prosperous clan spread around him. It is no surprise those who married into the family felt equally cherished as those born to it -- Bill valued anyone who brought strength of character and added to the good reputation of his extended family. One speech well-remembered by all his grandchildren had as its subject a motorboat and a sailboat, both moving down a river. While everyone has heard this speech many times at various anniversaries, weddings and reunions nobody can agree on its specifics. Half my cousins swear to this day it's better to be a sailboat under your own power, not counting on external devices to get ahead. The other half swear Bampy wanted us all to be motorboats forging ahead, making our own way in life, not reliant on the whims of wind and tide.
It is a great mercy that my grandfather grew old suddenly. In the memories of many in the family it was only yesterday that he was big and booming, taking on projects better left to a man half his age as he strove to maintain the house he had built himself as a much younger man. Just a few years ago, well into his eighties, I watched Bampy significantly outscore my husband in a round of golf. (The fact that my grandmother beat both of them took some of the bloom off my grandfather's bragging rights.)
Bill COLLINS first fell in love with his wife as she sang at a local church function. He loved her, loved his family, loved ceremony. He would have been happy with the way he died -- sung out as the clock approached midnight by his bride and his children clustered around his bed.
Tudor ROBINS is Bill's granddaughter.

An 81-year-old Whitby woman is dead after a two-vehicle collision in Pickering, Durham Region Police said.
An 82-year-old man was driving eastbound with the woman on Kingston Rd. at Bainbridge Doctor near Brock Rd. at about 10: 20 p.m. on Thursday when he collided with an oncoming vehicle turning south onto Bainbridge, police said.

The driver and passenger, as well as the 53-year-old woman driving the other vehicle, were transported to Lakeridge Health-Ajax. While in hospital, the condition of 81-year-old Anne COLLINS worsened and she died from her injuries.
The intersection was closed for several hours as accident investigators combed the scene. Road and weather conditions were good at the time of the collision, they found.
