WISCHNEWSKI, Nino Helmut (1953-2007)
It is with great sadness that we announce Nino's sudden passing in Iqaluit on November 24, 2007. Survived and dearly missed by his wife Heather Daley, parents Arno and Renate (Capetown), step-sons Travis and Simon, brothers Ralph (Toronto), Marco (London), Uwe (Johannesburg) and their families. Born in Stuttgart and raised in South Africa, Nino immigrated to Canada in 1976 and established many strong Friendships in Alberta, Ontario, Nova Scotia, and Nunavut. An avid outdoorsman, nature enthusiast and long-distance driver, Nino revelled in the Canadian wilderness, wildlife sanctuaries of South Africa and the German Autobahn. His sense of adventure, generous spirit and wry humour will be sorely missed. Journalist and communications expert, Nino was a sage and talented wordsmith, political analyst and tactician, most recently with the Nunavut government. Memorial donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated by the family and will be received by Kelly Funeral Home, 1255 Walkley Road, Ottawa, K1V 6P9, 613-731-1255. A celebration of Nino's life will take place November 29 in Iqaluit, and in late December in Toronto.

MacDONALD, Richard " MAC"
(September 3, 1947-December 16, 2007)
Richard MacDONALD (MAC) passed away suddenly on December 16, 2007 at his home. He created so many memories and he will be greatly missed but never forgotten. He would never want us to mourn his life (or write a cheesy obituary about it), for he had a great time! There will be no service by request and that is why Sherry, Emily and Dan are throwing a party in his honour to celebrate his life. We want to invite all who knew and loved my dad to come to: Sylvia's Restaurant (The Sylvia Hotel) 1154 Gilford St. (on English Bay) Vancouver, British Columbia Date: January 12, 2008 Time: 5:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. Let's listen to some good music, drink beer and share some funny stories about Richard. My dad was never a big fan of flowers; he killed all the ones my mom ever tried to grow. So in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the charitable organization that my dad fully supported and where my mom volunteers: WISH (Women's Information Safe Haven) Website: www.wish-vancouver.net We love you Daddy!
