"Laugh and the world laughs with you Cry and you cry alone"
"Count your age by Friends, not years
Count your life by smiles, not tears"
In loving memory of Gervis William WADDELL, 92 years, who passed away peacefully on Monday, January 8, 2007 at Saint_Joseph's Villa, Sudbury, Ontario. Grateful husband of Ellen Josephine Caswell McKESSOCK (predeceased 1985.) Proud father of Donald (partner Cathy FERGUSON,) Robert (partner Bonnie GROULX,) Richard (wife Diane,) Judy (husband Gordan ANGELOFF) and James. Fortunate Grandfather of Jody, Damien, Dean, Daniel, Kyle, David, Caitlin, Brendan, Samantha, Kristi, Aiden and Connor. son of William Henry WADDELL and Maria Kairns GERVIS (both deceased.)

Fortunate step-brother of Gwen BRUNATTI (husband Joe,) Jackson WADDELL (deceased 1999,) Keith WADDELL (wife Ida,) Murray WADDELL (wife Joyce,) all of Parry Sound, and Wesley WADDELL of Toronto. His love and support will be sadly missed by numerous nieces and nephews on both sides of the family. Gerv enjoyed a long teaching career which began at Richmond School, a one room school house in Carling Township, Ontario - September 1934-June 1936. This was followed by Victory School in Parry Sound, Ontario - September 1936-June 1939. Opportunities abounded in Sudbury so Gerv moved north to teach at Alexander Public School - September 1939-June 1941. He spoke fondly of summers spent at Camp Falcona as Co-Director with good friend Bill Edgar. He left Sudbury late in 1941 to fight in World War 2 as an Aircrew Navigator with the Royal Canadian Air Force. He was on loan to 279 Squadron of the Royal Air Force flying Lougheed Hudsons from the North Sea to the French, Dutch and Danish coasts (Air Sea Resuce, Coastal Command, Bircham Newton, Norfolk, 1943-1944). He was then transferred to 161 Squadron of the Royal Air Force navigating Lougheed Hudsons and Stirling aircraft as Special Duties Support dropping agents and supplies behind enemy lines for the Resistance Movement in France, Holland, Denmark, Northern Germany and Norway, (3 Group-Bomber Command, Tempsford, Bedfordshire, 1944-1945). Crewmates "Nick" Nicholson, Sam Cullen and Bud Schroeder). Gerv finished up the War with 426 Squadron of the Royal Canadian Air Force on long range Military Personnel Transport from Tempsford, Bedfordshire to Karachi, India flying Liberator aircrart. (July 1945-November 19, 1945). He returned to Sudbury to become a Principal of Queen Elizabeth Public School, Wembley Public School, College Street Public School, and Princess Anne Public School with the Sudbury board of Education. Gerv spent "two of the best years of he and wife Ellen's married life" as a Principal on loan to the Canadian Armed Forces at Three Wing in Zweibrucken, Germany (1963-1965). The whole family benefited immensely as a result of this wonderful opportunity. Upon his return to Sudbury, Gerv was the Principal of Adamsdale Public School where he retired in June 1977. Gerv served his community for a decade as an honest and straight forward City Councillor for both the Ryan Ward and Ward Four. He also acted as Deputy Mayor during this time. It must also be mentioned that Gerv was one of the four founding builders/owners of the Caswell Motor Hotel. Gerv was born and raised in Parry Sound, Ontario. He was always proud of his roots and often took fellow "Parry Sounders" under his wing when they made their way to Sudbury to work. Always the gentleman, he will truly be missed by many. Visitation Friday, January 12, 2007 at the Jackson and Barnard Funeral Home. Friends may call 2-5 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. Funeral Service Saturday, January 13, 2007, 11: 00 a.m. Saint Peter's United Church, York Street. Interment in the family plot at Park Lawn Cemetery.
