ACHESON, Lorne Victor
On August 1, 2007, a funeral service was held to celebrate the 86 year life of Lorne Victor Acheson who passed away suddenly on July 28, 2007.
Lorne was born and raised on a farm in Proton Township and as a boy, he attended S.S.#2 School sometimes known as the "Acheson School" until old enough to work on the farm. In 1942, he, along with his father, Stanley ACHESON, took over a live-stock trucking business that Lorne would continue to operate for 54 years.
On July 7, 1951, Lorne married Roma CHANDLER who had moved to the area as a high school mathematics teacher. Having been raised in the rather nomadic home of a United Church minister, Roma often commented that she never really had a permanent home until she met and married Lorne and adopted Dundalk as her home. Lorne and Roma raised a family of four children: Edward (Ted), Kenneth, Elizabeth (Beth), and Joyce. Roma passed away on November 24, 1979 after a lengthy battle with cancer and Lorne was to continue his life's journey on his own.
He continued on his own but definitely not alone While he kept busy at his trucking business, he also volunteered for years with the Dundalk Agricultural Society, as well as maintaining his involvement with the Dundalk Lions Club up until the time of his death. In his later years, he became a' "special friend" with Doris LANGDON and together they enjoyed two sets of in-laws, cousins and grandchildren. "Aunt" Doris was certainly the tonic that added years to his life.
Reverend Janet ERIKSEN officiated a service that was held in a packed church on a beautiful late summer day. Reverend Janet delivered the eulogy. Gospel readings were done by Lorne's granddaughters Olivia and Holly ACHESON. Olivia remembered a story of Grandpa, when learning that Olivia was going to England to study Archeology, telling her that there were lots of potatoes in Badjeros that needed digging. Jim DOLMER shared memories of "Uncle Lorne" when Jim was growing up and Janine GOSTICK shared her memories of "Grandpa." Ian LEITH played a lovely rendition of "Whispering Hope", Lorne's favourite gospel tune. Pallbearers were grand_sons Ted CLARKE, Allan CLARKE, Robert CLARKE, Jesse ACHESON, Steven GOSTICK, Kevin ACHESON, and Ryan ALDCORN. Flowerbearers were granddaughters Olivia ACHESON, Holly ACHESON, Melissa ACHESON, Heather ACHESON, Janine GOSTICK, Jackie CLARKE, Carlene ALDCORN, Randi ALDCORN, and Emily PHILLIPS. Special music was provided by Mary NICHOLLS, Dundalk United Church Choir, and Ian LEITH.
It is very hard to capsulize 86 years in a few paragraphs. A brief summary was included in the funeral service bulletin, simply titled:
Our Dad
A simple man in the best sense of the description. A humble man. A kind, loving and caring husband and father. A man who wanted only what he needed and needed little. Born and raised on a farm during the Depression, he was blessed with an inherent humility that, over his lifetime, became a more rare trait in people. Obviously we have no recollection of him as a youngster, only stories heard.
He loved the farm life. As hard-scrabble a life as it seems to us, he took pride (the little he had) in a job well done. He loved a new-born calf, a fat steer, a "hot" market, a fast trotter, and the smell of alfalfa curing in the windrow.
He loved his community and never yearned to move on to better opportunities elsewhere but rather to help improve the community he was in. As somewhat of a creature of habit, he loved his special places and routines. Anyone who knew him always knew where he could be found. Early mornings in his later years would find him at the Highway 10 Breakfast Club. On Sunday morning, he could be found in the same pew down to the left of the minister. On Tuesday morning he could be found at the Keady Auction Market in the same seat down to the left of the auctioneer. Just as he had been during his fifty-four year career as a live stock trucker, he continued to be a "morning person" in his retirement. He loved his church as any devout Christian would. Most of all, he loved his family. He loved family gatherings with a Sunday afternoon picnic on the front lawn. He loved his parents, his siblings, his wife, his special friend and her extended family and he loved us. He loved his many Friends that he met along the way. If you are reading this, should know that you were one of them.

Priest was a driving force behind many area projects
Rev. Patrick COSTELLO also built relationships with developing churches across Africa.
By April ROBINSON, Sun Media, Fri., December 28, 2007
A priest known as the spark behind enduring Saint Thomas community events and projects has died.
Rev. Patrick COSTELLO died of cancer on Christmas Day in Chatham. He was 78.
"Everybody knew Father Pat in Saint Thomas, whether you were Catholic or not," said Steve PETERS, member of provincial parliament for Elgin-Middlesex-London and a former Saint Thomas mayor.
"He had this ability to pull people together for any goal or any project," he said.
One project was the annual Sports Spectacular celebrity dinner in Saint Thomas.
COSTELLO was the driving force getting the event, now in its 30th year, started.
The dinner raises money for the Association for Community Living and the Special Olympics, groups COSTELLO believed in supporting.
"He's always been sports-minded," said Gary CLARKE, an organizer of the dinner and a superintendent of the London District Catholic school board.
CLARKE, who worked with COSTELLO on the dinner for 15 years, said he wants to commemorate him at the next dinner on January 24.
COSTELLO's cousin, Les COSTELLO, founded the Flying Fathers -- a hockey team made up of priests who raise money for charities after quitting the Toronto Maple Leafs to become a priest.
Pat COSTELLO played a bit of hockey himself, said CLARKE.
His true gift was his ability to get the church to extend its reach into the community and beyond, he said.
"He always had a project on the go."
COSTELLO began the annual Saint Anne's festival, a four-day event in June.
He was a strong supporter of minor hockey and soccer.
He also initiated the building of the Saint Anne's Centre in Saint Thomas, now a community hub for weddings, dances and the Sports Spectacular.
COSTELLO also saw a need for a seniors centre so elderly parishioners could just "walk across the street" to church, said CLARKE. So, COSTELLO oversaw construction of the non-profit seniors residence.
"He was able to create a sense of community from the bricks and mortar," said CLARKE.
That sense extended to Africa, where COSTELLO built relationships with developing churches in Zambia, Tanzania and Zimbabwe.
"Father Pat always wanted to know how the Catholic church was faring in my part of the world," Telesphore Mpundu, archbishop of Lusaka, Zambia, said in an e-mail.
COSTELLO helped to establish a parish in a remote region of Zambia in 1980 named Saint Anne's after the Saint Thomas church.
"I know there will be a lot of sadness at his death," said John SHERLOCK, former bishop of the London diocese.
"He was brimming with self-confidence and he was gregarious," he said.
After 25 years at Saint Anne's, COSTELLO capped off his career at Sacred Heart parish in Port Lambton and celebrated 50 years of work as a priest in 2004.
Visitation is today at the Blessed Sacrament Church in Chatham from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and tomorrow from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
The funeral, also at Blessed Sacrament, is tomorrow at 11 a.m.

Born in Halifax on November 22, 1931, she was a daughter of the late Florence (MARTIN) MIELKE and Gerald MIELKE. She was predeceased by brother, Peter MIELKE, and sister, Jackie (Sr. Margaret Patricia, South Carolina). A lifelong resident of Halifax, Pat attended Saint Thomas Aquinas School and St. Pat's High School. She graduated from the Nova Scotia Normal College in 1949 and, at the age of 17, started her teaching career at Ardmore and Alexander McKay Schools in Halifax. After taking a break to raise her children, she returned briefly to teaching at Ida Mae Marriott School in Spryfield in the mid 70s. Pat was a devout Catholic, dedicating much of her time to the church and those in need. Her church work included: the Archdiocesan Liturgical Committee, the Archdiocesan Family Life Committee, Chair - St. Agnes Church Parish Council, member - Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish Council, Marriage Encounter Leader and 30 years with the Catholic Women's League. She served, as well, as a church lecturer, lay distributor and religious education instructor. She gave selflessly of herself, always finding time for the less fortunate, opening her home and her heart to many people of the years. She was passionately involved in several choirs over her lifetime including the Chebucto Community Singers, St. Agnes and Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church Choirs, 18 years with the Nova Scotia Tattoo Choir, 22 years with the Dal Chorale and countless Scratch Messiahs. Her children and grandchildren are the proud recipients of her love of song and music, as well as her great sense of humour. Much of Pat's life was spent at swimming pools, hockey rinks and baseball fields supporting her children's activities. Her years of dedication to the Waegwoltic Swim Team earned her the Mother of the Year Award. Above all, Pat was a devoted wife, mother and friend. She will be sadly missed by her family and all those whose lives she touched. Special thanks to Monica Flinn (Palliative Care nurses), Doctor Stewart Cameron, the Victorian Order of Nurses, and countless family and Friends, who supported Pat throughout her illness with care, compassion, visits, well-wishes and eucharistic ministry.

CLARKE, Alan Martin (August 1, 1929-June 12, 2007)
After a full and wonderful life, and a long struggle with Parkinson's Disease, Alan died in Toronto on June 12, 2007 at the age of 77. Alan cherished his family, and will be forever missed by his beloved children Andrew (Lucy VAN OLDENBARNEVELD,) Beth (Laura CABOTT,) Jeffrey (Jane RUPERT,) and Matthew Devlin (Alexandra KIRBY,) his granddaughters, Ella and Grace, and Margot, his wife of 40 years. He leaves behind his brother Edgar (Betty), his sisters, Mary (Haruo KAWAI,) Harriet (Jacob ENNS) and Margaret (Sidney TJEPKEMA, his sister-in-law, Vicki BRODDY, and many nieces, nephews and life-long Friends. The son of Emily (EDGAR) and Lorne CLARKE, Alan was born in Stratford, spent his early years in Sudbury and his childhood and teenage years in Ottawa South. He graduated from Glebe Collegiate Institute and Victoria College, University of Toronto with a bachelor's degree in philosophy and ethics. Alan dedicated his life to social change through adult education, and community development. He was also a committed advocate for human rights. In the 1950s he spent several summers as a labourer/teacher and then supervisor for Frontier College beginning a lifelong interest in fostering adult literacy. He worked for ten years with the Young Men's Christian Association at various branches in Toronto. In 1958 he was the founder and first director of The Centre for Adult Education at the North Toronto branch which led to the founding of York University in 1959. From 1960 to 1966 he was Executive Director of the Canadian Citizenship Council and concurrently, for three years, of the Canadian Centenary Council. His next challenge was as the first Executive Director of the Company of Young Canadians, 1966 to 1968. He began a fifteen year tenure at Algonquin College in 1970 as the Director of the Demonstration Project in Community Development and then as the Director of Continuing Education. In 1985-86 he was Advisor to the Canadian Emergency Coordinator for the African Famine. The last ten years of his formal working career were as Communications Advisor for the International Joint Commission. Throughout his working life and as a volunteer in retirement, Alan worked with many local, national and international organizations, contributing, among others, to Project 4000, the Movement for Canadian Literacy, and the United Nations Association in Canada. He was a contributing author to 'Strong and Free: a Response to the War Measures Act', in 1970.

He steered Canada's answer to the Peace Corps through rough waters
As executive director of the Company of Young Canadians in the idealistic Sixties, he fended off critics who said it was infiltrated by Communists
By Douglas McARTHUR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S10
Toronto -- As a toddler during the Depression, Alan Martin CLARKE helped his mother hand out food to men riding the rails in search of work. As a university student he spent summer months with the adult-literacy organization Frontier College, toiling on a railway gang during the day and teaching his co-workers to read in the evening.
Those early acts kicked off a lifelong commitment to adult education, social action and human rights, in which he played key roles with Frontier College, the Young Men's Christian Association, Algonquin College, the International Joint Commission and the United Nations Association in Canada.
But no job brought him more publicity, good and bad, than his stint from 1966 to 1968 as executive director of the fledgling Company of Young Canadians. He headed the government-financed agency at a time when the press and many politicians were charging it was controlled by Communists, radicals and Québécois separatists.
"Alan's life touched a lot of people," says David MacDonald, a former Conservative cabinet minister who hired Mr. CLARKE for projects several times. "He was a community educator par excellence. He had an intense interest in citizen empowerment."
Over the years, Mr. CLARKE fought for many causes, both as an employee and as a citizen volunteer. Early in his career, he played a key role in the establishment of Toronto's York University. He worked in Ottawa to help settle Vietnamese "boat people" fleeing Communism in 1979, to raise funds for African famine relief in 1985 and 1986, to help Canadians increase their reading skills through the Movement for Canadian Literacy and to turn an old Ottawa courthouse into a centre for the arts.
He first came to national prominence in the 1960s as head of the beleaguered Company of Young Canadians. The group, modelled roughly on the U.S. Peace Corps, was created by prime minister Lester Pearson's Liberals during a turbulent era when baby boomers were coming of age and questioning traditional values. The Company of Young Canadians's mandate was to deploy young Canadians in impoverished communities across the country where they would help people better their lives.
In 1967, opposition members demanded the government put the Company of Young Canadians on a short leash after two volunteers, David DePoe and Lynn Curtis, took part in a rally against the U.S. war in Vietnam.
Mr. CLARKE insisted the volunteers had acted strictly as individuals, and threatened to resign if the prime minister didn't defend the agency's independence in Parliament. Eventually, Mr. Pearson did just that, thanks to the intercession of Marc Lalonde, then a member of the Company of Young Canadians council and an adviser to the Prime Minister's Office. Mr. Lalonde would later become a cabinet minister under Pierre Trudeau.
Mr. CLARKE's victory was short-lived, however, as new charges of radicalism and overspending continued to dog the organization. In 1968, Mr. CLARKE was ordered by the office of Gérard Pelletier, then secretary of state, to fire Martin Beliveau, a Quebec employee accused of separatist leanings. Despite his misgivings, Mr. CLARKE asked Mr. Beliveau to resign, then he handed in his own resignation.
Mr. CLARKE quit on a matter of principle, says Stewart Goodings, who replaced him as executive director, and was to quit himself within a matter of months.
"No one man could have solved the dilemmas that CLARKE faced daily," wrote Ian Hamilton in his 1970 book, The Children's Crusade: The Story of the Company of Young Canadians. He praises Mr. CLARKE for fighting for the group's independence and involving the volunteers in decision making, but faults him for not hiring people capable of keeping the Company of Young Canadians on an even keel. The group was brought under government control in 1969 and finally disbanded in 1976.
Co-workers remember Mr. CLARKE as a serious man who worked long hours. But his family saw his fun-loving nature.
"Every so often he would come into our bedrooms, stark naked and carrying just a briefcase," recalls his oldest son, Andrew. "He'd say, 'Okay, I'm off to work.' The children, fearing he was so distracted he had forgotten to dress, would rush downstairs to head him off. They would find him hiding in the closet.
The son of Emily (EDGAR) and Lorne CLARKE, both teachers, he grew up in a strict Baptist home in Sudbury. The family later moved to Ottawa where he was graduated from Glebe Collegiate Institute.
While earning a degree in philosophy and ethics at the University of Toronto, he spent his summers as a labourer-teacher and later as a supervisor with Frontier College. He went on to become first a member, then chairman of the college board. He was employed during his university years, and immediately after, by the Young Men's Christian Association. In 1958, while serving as founder and first director of the Centre for Adult Education at the Young Men's Christian Association's North Toronto branch, he was a member of the group that set up York University. York recognized his contribution in 1992 by awarding him an honorary degree.
In 1958, he married Margo BRODDY, a teacher, and lived with her for more than 40 years. They separated in 1998 and were divorced in 2003. They had three children together: Andrew, Beth and Jeffrey. He had another son, Matthew DEVLIN, through a separate relationship.
Alan CLARKE never paid attention to the speed limit when driving, says his son Andrew. "The only times my dad stepped on the brakes were for stop signs, red lights and to check out pretty girls."
At the family dinner table, Mr. CLARKE challenged his children by leading discussions about current events. "He wanted us kids to learn to think things out for ourselves," says his daughter Beth.
Prior to Mr. CLARKE's appointment with the Company of Young Canadians, he served six years as executive director of the Canadian Citizenship Council and concurrently, for three years, as director of the Canadian Centenary Council. For 15 years, starting in 1970, he worked at Ottawa's Algonquin College as director of a community development project and later as director of continuing education.
In 1985, he was hired as an adviser to David MacDonald, who had been named Canadian emergency co-ordinator for the African famine. Mr. MacDonald says he was initially reluctant to hire Mr. CLARKE because he had employed him in the past, and because they were close Friends. He feared the appointment would look like nepotism.
But he went ahead when Joe Clark, then prime minister, insisted Mr. CLARKE was the only person capable of motivating Canadians to contribute. A Decima poll later showed that two out of every three Canadians made a donation.
For the next 10 years, Mr. CLARKE served as communications officer with the International Joint Commission, a Canadian-U.S. body that deals with issues concerning shared boundary waters. Mr. CLARKE joined the board of the United Nations Association in Canada in 1989, and worked there on a contract basis after his retirement from the International Joint Commission in 1996. He continued to come into the office after he was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease but realized that his memory was starting to fail.
"He was remarkably calm as he faced that challenge, recalls Joan Broughton, the group's public information officer. "It was tough to watch and wonderful to watch at the same time."
In 2000, he moved in with Estelle REED, a civil servant and long-time friend. They lived together first in Ottawa and later in Toronto. She continued to care for him after he was admitted to North York Seniors Health Centre in Toronto, where he was to live for 2½ years.
Alan Martin CLARKE was born on August 1, 1929, in Stratford, Ontario He died in Toronto on June 12, 2007, of complications from Parkinson's disease. He was 77. He leaves his wife of 40 years, Margo (née BRODDY;) children Andrew, Beth and Jeffrey CLARKE and Matthew DEVLIN; two granddaughters, Ella and Grace CLARKE a brother Edgar; three sisters, Mary, Harriet and Margaret; and his common-law partner, Estelle REED, . A memorial service will be held tomorrow at the First Unitarian Congregation, 30 Cleary Avenue, Ottawa at 3: 30 p.m.
