She joins her best friend and husband of 62 years, Gar (2001) and predeceased siblings Lloyd, Ray, Bud, Madeleine, Pat and Harvey. "Mom" to Dennis (Sine) PETTIT of London and Wayne (Carmen) PETTIT of Houston, Texas. She was infinitely proud of her boys and their families. She supported them unwaveringly her entire life.

Nana's stories and trips to the beach will be missed by Brooke and Brett, Carrie (Trevor) MERRICK of Edmonton, Alberta, Kelly (Dave) ROWCLIFFE of London, Stephanie (Bill) PETERS of Southampton, New York. Nothing gave Nana more joy than to see her seven great-grandchildren born. She will be missed by Josh, Kennedy, Steven, Paige, Ella, Tyler and Bridget. There will surely be a void at the annual Southwick and Pettit picnic. She will be missed by many nieces and nephews with whom she had a special bond as "Aunt Viv". Vivian had a long life starting in Weed, California where she developed a love for horses and all animals. After moving to Brantford, she met the love of her life Gar in 1938 while working at Patterson's Candy. Married 62 years, they shared a wonderful life in Brantford, Toronto, London and in retirement on the shores of Lake Huron and Winterhaven, Florida. Vivian and Gar were models for our family, immediate and extended, and we will carry forward their love, generosity, compassion and integrity with us.

ROWE, Harold
Harold was born on Manitoulin Island December 21, 1921, son of Ted and Lily ROWE. He was later joined by a sister Edna and a brother Wilbert.
In 1942 Harold joined the Canadian Army, Second Division landing in France in 1944 to begin the fighting. He was wounded twice during the war. His brother Wilbert was killed and is buried in Holland. The war ended May 8, 1945, he arrived back in Canada, November 27, 1945 and was finally discharged January 21, 1946.
He bought a truck and a small farm outside Little Current. On February 21, 1950 he married Doreen STRINGER. A son, Garry, was born June 14, 1951 and Carol arrived September 1, 1952. In 1957 they moved to the 8th of Proton buying a farm from Lou BENSON.
They bought milk cows, converted the barn adding a bulk tank and began shipping milk. In 1967 they sold the farm and bought the New Century Restaurant from John and Irene MILLS. Harold started a job at the newly built factory Trim Trends, working in the day time at the factory and then switching to washing dishes at the restaurant in the evening. He continued at Trim Trends until his retirement in 1986.
He took flying lessons from Carl IRWIN and got his pilot's license which had been a dream of his for years. He bought a two-seater Cessna which he kept at Lorne ACHESON's until they built their present house, a hanger for the plane and a landing strip. He attended many fly-ins, looked for lost cattle, flew back and forth to the Manitoulin to visit his relatives and really enjoyed flying.
They sold the restaurant in 1969 and in 1970 Greg joined the family. Early '80s a boat replaced the plane and a trailer was placed at Victoria Harbour where they spent many weekends fishing and relaxing.
Harold had many hobbies. He loved to read, listen to music, and watch horse racing on T.V. He was an avid bird watcher and had many visitors at his feeders. He loved to travel and had taken many trips to the American West, Canadian West, East coast and Florida. He was overseas twice, once in 1984 with Doreen and Carol and again in 2004 with Allan SMITH. He visited Germany, Holland, France Belgium, Luxembourg and England. While there he visited his brother's grave and many other interesting places.
He took pride in his huge garden always trying to outsmart the birds and keep them away from his strawberries. He had a passion for teaching his children, their Friends and grandchildren to love the sport of fishing, a tradition that hopefully they will pass on to their children. Some days his line never got in the water as he was too busy taking off sunfish and small bass for everyone else. He went on many fishing trips with his sons and grand_sons. He loved to fish and even liked it better if he caught something. He was also a very good cook and was always looking for new recipes to try. You could always count on there being cookies, squares, donuts around for the grandchildren and the candy dish was always full.
He was a great Dad supporting and helping his children. He built his own home and helped build Garry's and Greg's homes. He was always there to answer any questions and offer advice. He spent endless hours helping at Lorne and Carol's farm, ploughing, cultivating, baling, drawing grain, fixing things and doing any little jobs that needed to be done. His truck could be seen daily spring and fall heading towards the farm. He was a cherished and special grandfather who was always there whether it be to babysit, or teach them to ride their first bike, or read a story or remove that sunfish from their hook. There were always some treats somewhere in the house for the grandchildren when they popped in after school.
Harold passed away peacefully at home on April 13, 2006, and will be sadly missed but lovingly remembered by his wife Doreen, son Gary and Barb, daughter Carol and Lorne, son Greg and Kelly, his grandchildren Don and Stacy ROWE, Theresa and Sandy YOUNG, Janette, Denise, Lori, Andrew, Kati RIDDELL, Connor and Meghan ROWE and great-grandchildren Avery, Jared and Jordon ROWE and Carter and Abigail YOUNG.
To live in the hearts we leave behind, is not to die.

Chris DOTY revealed London
The historian and filmmaker was branching out into theatre when he died.
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter, Mon., February 6, 2006
Chris DOTY's last work was also his best, say Friends left reeling by the sudden death of the noted historian, writer and London "treasure."
Though DOTY, 39, had spent little more than a year focused on stage productions, his latest script -- about London-bred marijuana activist Marc EMERY -- pointed to a future full of theatrical promise.
"We really did see him as having the Midas touch in theatre," said Jason RIP, who with DOTY co-wrote Citizen Marc, which ended its debut downtown run Saturday.
"He was really savvy. That's why he was such a success."
Another of DOTY's recent stage productions, The Donnelly Trial, was a rousing success and DOTY planned to reprise it this summer.
Citizen Marc was met with much praise, including by Emery himself.
But DOTY will likely be best remembered for his documentary films, an impressive body of commercially-friendly work that chronicled London's often unappreciated, and nearly forgotten, stories.
"He said, 'There's no point in doing something that people don't want to see," RIP said. "His real skill was his ability to promote."
As a friend and valued source to news reporters, DOTY was always available for a short London history lesson or a sharp, funny quote.
His sense of humour and appreciation for quirky, fascinating facts is also clear on his website, dotydocs.com.
Its content includes a list of the city's ghost legends, a catalogue of local Unidentified Flying Object sightings and stories of criminals in London executed for their crimes. It also details the storied history of such London hotspots as Wonderland Gardens and the Seven Dwarfs restaurant.
It's clear the man who brought London history to life won't be soon forgotten, said RIP, who is eager to see a "fitting tribute" to DOTY's work.
A remarkable attention to detail earned DOTY the respect of fellow historians.
He was cutting a similar swath in the city's theatre community, said Patsy MORGAN, who formerly lived with and dated DOTY.
"He touched so many of their lives," she said yesterday. "They all really, really respected him. There was so much for him yet to do and I just miss my friend."
Above all, however, DOTY had the admiration of his family, including brother Grant and mother Gwyneth.
"I was very proud of him," Grant said Saturday. "His work was just so superior to anything I could think of doing.
"He gave so much of himself. He truly loved London."
Visitation is today at the John T. Donohue Funeral Home from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. The funeral is tomorrow at Metropolitan United Church at 11 a.m.
Definitive DOTY
Among the work of London historian, documentary filmmaker and playwright Chris DOTY, 39, who died Friday:
Stage
- His scripts included The Donnelly Trial, about the unsolved 1880 massacre of the Lucan-area Donnelly clan, and Citizen Marc, about pot activist Marc EMERY.
- Established the Brickenden Awards, honouring the city's best theatrical work.
Film
- In 1995, established Doty Docs, a production company to "create and foster audio-visual projects about London's history."
- His documentaries chronicled local events, including the 1939 royal visit and the disastrous 1937 flood. They also spotlighted city institutions, including the Grand Theatre, London Knights and Storybook Gardens
Online
- His website, dotydocs.com, is full of quirky items about London, from Unidentified Flying Object sightings to a biography of big-band leader Guy LOMBARDO.
- Two long-lost sisters separated after the 1951 London execution of their father, Walter George ROWE, reunited after reading DOTY's online story about ROWE. " Give DOTY all the credit," an emotional Georgina ROWE said.

ROWE, Percy
By Peter ROWE, Page A18
Travel writer, author. Born January 15, 1922, in London, England. Died March 7, in Mississauga, Ontario, of pneumonia, aged 84.
Percy ROWE was born in the chaotic years following the First World War, spent his adolescence and his 20s in the Depression and the Second World War, then re-established himself in the new world, contributing to and participating in the peace and prosperity of the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s.
He was born a twin in a London, England working-class home. His twin brother did not survive childbirth. Percy grew up in the Thameside village of Egham, famed for its propinquity to where the Magna Carta was signed. As a boy he worked as a caddie at one of England's poshest golf courses, carrying clubs for toffs of the era. It turned him off the game; he never played a day in his life, buying into Mark Twain's contention that it was "a good walk, spoiled."
Although his father was a frequently unemployed stoker/fishmonger/fire warden/bookie, ROWE was able to get a scholarship to go to the private Strode School. He worked for a short while as an accountant (and would later put it to use, claiming to never spend more than two hours a year doing his taxes). Fascinated with flight, he volunteered for the Royal Air Force, becoming a lieutenant and navigator on the cargo planes of the war, the Dakotas. He spent most of the war towing gliders full of paratroopers, spies and returning resistance fighters into France and Germany.
His first trip overseas was to Canada, where he was part of the Commonwealth Air Training Program. He met Muriel ANTILL on a date at the Winnipeg Canoe Club. Returning to England, he flew as part of the Normandy invasion and the subsequent liberation of the Netherlands. Following victory, Muriel sailed on the first peacetime sailing of the Queen Mary, and they were married on September 15, 1945. Photos of the wedding show squadrons of Spitfires in the skies behind them, celebrating the end of the war.
The young couple returned to Canada and, in 1946, Percy began his writing career at the Winnipeg Tribune, covering local politics, the police beat and the Winnipeg flood of 1950. A fan of neither London's smoggy poverty nor Winnipeg's frigid winters, Percy moved in 1953 to the city he soon grew to love: Toronto. Working his way up to assistant managing editor of the Telegram, he was part of the city's explosion in the early 1960s, scooping the Toronto Star with stories about lake swims, the Boyd Gang and Liz Taylor visits.
He got what he considered to be a dream assignment in 1968: travel editor of the Tely, and, after it folded, of the Toronto Sun. As he says, in his completed (unpublished) memoirs, Man About the World: "It was the world's best job. I was there during perhaps the heyday of 20th century travel, travelling up to 200,000 miles a year to the remotest corners of the world -- for free!"
Throughout the 1970s and 1980s he would turn out three or four stories a week, edit the Sun's travel sections and write a restaurant review. He also published seven books: a best-selling guidebook to Canada, two books about wine, and guidebooks to Toronto, Montreal, Niagara Falls and New Delhi. His best book, The Great Atlantic Air Race, became a documentary shown on History Television the night he died. He wrote to the end (his last article was published earlier this year) and at 83, he wrote his first play (about a hooker and a dot-com millionaire), hoping to see it produced at the Toronto Fringe Festival.
Percy was an active member of the Lifelong Learning Academy at the University of Toronto, he spoke French, Spanish, Italian and Russian, was a passionate gardener, a keen canoeist and an oil painter. Perhaps most important of all to him was his involvement in the lives of his five children and nine grandchildren.
Peter ROWE is Percy's son.
