His impeccable taste and creativity laid the foundation for the design of many beautiful frames, which will be viewed and admired for years to come. His strong character, integrity and genuine caring manner earned him the respect and admiration of all team members. Richard demonstrated a true understanding of what was important in life. He valued family time, Friendships and the simple pleasures of life. He was an avid fisherman who appreciated the beauty of the world around him. He often said it wasn't about catching fish but rather enjoying the peace and tranquility of the water. Richard's presence will be felt this spring and summer in his flower gardens, which were truly labours of love. While far too short, Richard's life was an example in living rather than just simply being alive. Our lives have been enriched by knowing him and will continue to be through our memories of him.

Road's collapse blamed in deadly crane rollover
By John HERBERT, Free Press Reporter, Wed., January 25, 2006
A county road near Port Burwell collapsed under a heavy crane, causing it to roll into a ditch, killing its operator, Ontario's Labour Ministry has confirmed.
Michael HIPSON, 42, died in the mishap Monday on Glen Erie Line.
The Ajax man, married with two children, had worked for Cooper's Crane Rental for about three years.
The Toronto-based crane company is involved in the Erie Shores Wind Farm project in Port Burwell.
Glen Erie Line is heavily travelled by vehicles involved in the project, which began last summer.
Ontario Provincial Police said the 81-tonne crane was left partially submerged in water in the incident, which took place between Teal Neville and Stafford roads.
HIPSON was removed when the machine was pulled up a steep embankment about two hours later.
Ontario Provincial Police Const. Michelle SCOTT said police don't know if HIPSON died from injuries from the crash or if he drowned when the cab filled with water.
Allison CROSETT, duty manager with Elgin Emergency Medical Service, said it took about two hours to pull HIPSON from the wreckage because the first crane to arrive on the scene became bogged down when another portion of Glen Erie Line collapsed.

In loving memory of a dear friend who passed away one year ago today, July 7, 2005.
As time goes by without you
We hold a million memories
To us you were so special
What more is there to say
Except to wish with all our hearts
That you were here today
To hear your voice and see your smile
To be together in the same old way
Would be our greatest wish today.
Deeply missed Hugh and Delores SKINNER and Friends.

Born in Hamilton, Ontario, November 15, 1911 to Grace (TRELEAVEN) and Hugh MURRAY, Hugh attended Delta Collegiate where he was active in football, basketball and the student council. He became an insurance adjustor with Angell and West in Toronto and served as President of the Ontario Insurance Adjusters' Association from 1947-48. In 1948 he joined Morden and Helwig in Hamilton and later became Hamilton Branch Manager for Underwriter's Adjustment Bureau.

CROSS, James (1937-2006)
Of Glen Haven, Nova Scotia and formerly of Waterloo, Ontario. Avid cyclist, keen sailor, musician, inventor, Renaissance man. Died 23rd of October after a brutal fight with oesophageal cancer. Deeply loved husband of Cilla, proud and loving father of five wonderful children: Kate GREGORY of Pontypool, Ontario, Martin CROSS of Vancouver, British Columbia, Sarah MAY of Southsea, Hants, England, Megan BOYKO of Boutiliers Point -- Nova Scotia and Gwenith CROSS of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Loving Grancher to Beth and Kevin GREGORY, Sasha CROSS and Alexander MAY. He was so looking forward to the birth of Megan's baby this December. Father-in-law of Brian GREGORY, Hine MIZUSHIMA, Keith MAY and Jacob BOYKO. Predeceased by their older brother Terry, James is survived by his fraternal twin Alan, in England (there could only be one James!.) His nieces Jackie GAYLER and Debbie LEDGER, his nephew Brian CROSS, and their families mourn him in England. Survived by Pat CROSS of Toronto, his former wife and mother of his three eldest children. Cilla's family, including Doreen REED, Elaine CALDER and Owen REED will also miss him. James was born in London, England, and raised in the Forest of Dean, Gloucester, England. The first in his family to attend university James excelled in academia and went on to become a professor of Electrical Engineering. In addition to his university teaching and research James was also an inventor. His power engineering and power supply systems, including the Cross Power Supply, are in use internationally. Plastic perforation technology developed by James is also being used in manufacturing. What James set out to do, he did. And more. He circumnavigated the world in his 26 foot wooden boat, Gay Goose, using only a chronometer, sextant and charts. He taught himself to play the wooden flute and enjoyed his years in Waterloo with the Grand River Ceili Band. Following early retirement he got great pleasure from learning to play the Northumbrian Bagpipes and enjoyed two piping tours with other pipers in New Zealand. Along the way his pursuits included keeping bees, climbing mountains or cycling down them on a tandem with Cilla, and always living life to the fullest. James' greatest passion was his cycling. In his youth he was a highly successful competitive cyclist and he continued cycling his whole life in all weather, thinking nothing of his frequent 100 km plus rides. He kept a bicycle with Friends in several countries in order to always be able to go for a ride. This summer, while in England, before the insidious cancer took firm hold, he surprised his doctors by doing several 60 km rides. James was a difficult man to live with but it will be extremely difficult to live without him. Life was always interesting with James. His love of talking, imparting knowledge and telling of tales made him many firm Friends around the world. Sincere thanks to Doctor Jyothi who gave James and the family compassionate care, Doctor Virik who gave him hope, and the nurses of the Victorian Order of Nurses, especially Patsy, who provided such kind and sensitive care, which enabled James to die peacefully at home. Those who wish can make a memorial donation to: Victorian Order of Nurses of Greater Halifax, 7001 Mumford Road, Tower 1, Suite 300, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada B3L 4N9. Cilla and the children invite family, Friends and acquaintances to bid farewell to James on Saturday, October 28th at 2: 00 p.m. at: Saint Margaret's Sailing Club, Crouchers Point Road in Mariners Anchorage, French Village. (Highway 333 Peggy's Cove Road) We will celebrate James' life and reminisce about him. Correspondence for the family can be sent to: Cilla CROSS, Glen Haven, Nova Scotia B3Z 2T1. "Even at our birth, death does but stand aside a little. And every day he looks towards us and muses somewhat to himself whether that day or the next he will draw nigh". -- Robert Bolt "But ten more years would have been nice." -- James CROSS
