BOWDEN, Peter Andrew Marsden
(May 22, 1953-May 4, 1996)
We remember Peter all the time, but every year on the anniversary of his death, we publicly acknowledge our private grief and our huge loss.
Sometimes it is easy to laugh and smile and talk about Peter and all that we miss about him. At family dinners and on special occasions his absence is felt more so. There is always that missing place at the table. Then there are the lonely and quiet times when the soul hurts and the pain is deeper and we realize how much time has passed by and why it should have been that he was taken from us so early on and unexpectedly.
And so we remember, with deep and abiding love and we pay tribute in our hearts and our minds to a wonderful and unique man who was son, father, brother, uncle and a beloved and wonderful partner.
With all our love from Vanessa, Scott, Mark and Nancy, Jeff and Tanis and Luke, Ben and Sam. Always in our hearts.

REHDER, John Edward " Ned" (1916-2008)

Born in Bowmanville in 1916, he worked for the family business, The Bowmanville Foundry, until attending McGill University to study metallurgy. He graduated in 1943 and married Jocelyn BOWDEN.

Later he moved to Montreal to take up the post of Vice President of R&D for the Canada Iron Co. While working for this firm he won the Peter L. Simpson gold medal from the American Foundrymen's Society. He stayed with Canada Iron until the 1960's when he left to work for himself as a Consultant.

Upon his retirement he was invited to the Department of Mines and Metallurgy at the University of Toronto as a research assistant. This involved doing work with the Department of Archeology, a subject that gave him the chance to indulge in his passion for history, with particular interest in the Minoan culture. Ned had over a thousand papers published in various trade magazines and journals, and, at the age of 85 had a book "The Mastery and Uses of Fire in Antiquity" published by McGill/ Queens University Press.

ROBERTS, Peter Job
(10 July 1944-29 April 2008)
Left to mourn his wife, Betty BADCOCK; his brothers Edward (Eve) and Douglas; his aunt Alice ROBERTS; his nephew Clair, his nieces Kerby, Catherine, Caroline, Jessica and Alison; his cousins Avalon ROBERTS (Tom BOWEN) and Robert GIANNOU; and Betty's sister-in-law Genie and her daughters Janet and Jill.
Peter was richly blessed with a wide range of talents and skills. He was a boat builder, who took great pride in building his 45-foot steel-hulled brigantine Down North, after first teaching himself welding, carpentry and sail-making. He then sailed her joyfully in northern waters. A skilled painter and print-maker, he took great pleasure in recording the coastal scenery of Newfoundland and Labrador. He was an enthusiastic golfer, who took pride in his good rounds while being quick to acknowledge that "golf is a very humbling game", as he took the good and the bad shots as they came. He taught himself to play the guitar, and was the first to admit that he couldn't sing on key.
Although Peter was a gentle man, he was strong-minded and willing to stand up for his opinions and he was a fierce competitor. He played hockey, and chose to be a goaltender, playing for Prince of Wales College. But his greatest moment came when he and his team-mates were the first Newfoundland team to play in an international Pee Wee All-Star Invitational Tournament, in Goderich, Ontario in 1956. The other highlight of his hockey career came when he was knocked unconscious during a rough-and-ready game in the Roddickton-Englee-Conche-Main Brook league. As he lay on the ice, somebody yelled "go get the doctor". A moment later, they realized that Peter was the only doctor for a hundred miles either side of the rink. He recovered quickly, with no ill effects, and dined out on the story for the rest of his life.
Above all, Peter was a medical doctor and he was a Newfoundlander. These were his defining passions. He came to medicine the long-way round, notwithstanding the medical traditions of his family -- his father, his only uncle and most of their siblings and cousins had become doctors and nurses. He first earned bachelor's and master's degrees in history from the University of New Brunswick, winning high marks for his account of Newfoundland's turbulent mid-19th century politics.
Peter became a medical doctor because he wanted to help people. He was drawn to the North, and went to work with the International Grenfell Association. He worked in Northern Newfoundland and Labrador for all his professional life. He became the Executive Director of the IGA, and latterly of Grenfell Regional Health Services, and thus responsible for the provision of health care for many thousands of his fellow Newfoundlanders and Labradorians. Sir Wilfred Grenfell was the first to hold the position. Peter, the fifth and last to hold it, was the first and only Newfoundlander to do so. A modest man, he sought neither recognition nor honours. But those who know the Northern Peninsula and Coastal Labrador are quick to give testimony to his achievements, as a doctor, as a leader and as a friend.
Peter's father, Doctor Harry ROBERTS, taught him and his brothers that much was expected from those to whom much was given. Peter honoured this precept, serving as President of the Newfoundland and Labrador Medical Association and as the founding Chair of the Community Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador.
Those who knew Peter will not be surprised that he left firm and precise instructions for his funeral. He has been cremated: his ashes will be disposed of later, as he wished. Betty and his family invite his Friends to join them in a service to celebrate his life, to be held at Gower Street United Church in Saint_John's at 2: 30 p.m. on Thursday, 1 May. They will be happy to greet all at the service at a reception to be held in the Church's Lecture Hall after the service.
Betty asks all who wish to make a donation in Peter's memory to give to either the Community Foundation or a charity of their choice.

BOWERMAN--In loving memory of a dear father, grandfather, and great- grandfather, William (Bill), who left us suddenly on July 23, 2002.
The moment that you died,
Our hearts split in two,
The one side filled with memories,
The other died with you.
We often lay awake at night,
When the world is fast asleep,
And take a walk down memory lane,
With tears upon our cheeks.
Remembering you is easy,
We do it every day,
But missing you is a heartache,
That never goes away.
We hold you tightly within our hearts,
And there you will remain,
Life has gone on without you,
But it never will be the same.
For those who still have their dads,
Treat him with tender care,
You will never know the emptiness,
As when you turn and he is not there.
Lovingly remember by your daughter Marilyn, son-in-law Jim, grandchildren Marilee, Mallory and Mitchell, and great-grand_son Landen.

Steven TRUSCOTT's 'poor Mom' spent decades fighting on his behalf
The matriarch of a military family endured divorce and disappointment before seeing justice done
By Lisa FITTERMAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Doris Truscott BRENNAN would tell her children that when they were older, they'd look back on their youth and want to live it all over again. Childhood, she was wont to say, is the most precious and beautiful time of life.
"Poor Mom," her most famous son, Steven TRUSCOTT, once said to journalist Bill Trent. "How could she know that the soft, golden days of my childhood would one day come to an abrupt, tragic end and that she would be visiting me in a jail?"
Back in 1950s, Mrs. BRENNAN was known as Dot TRUSCOTT, a traditional air force wife and mother of four who spent her time cooking, cleaning, doing endless loads of laundry and ensuring that her boisterous offspring minded their manners. From the family's small clapboard house in Clinton, Ontario, she was the boss who tolerated no insubordination. Petite and plainspoken, it was her way to strike a balance between strictness and love.
In June, 1959, Mrs. BRENNAN was doing what she did every year: making plans for summer vacation and occasionally socializing with her husband, Dan, in the sergeants' mess. On June 10, everything began to unravel. That's when Leslie HARPER, the father of 12-year-old Lynne, showed up on the doorstep, saying he'd been told that one of the Truscott boys had seen her. She hadn't come home the night before. The family was frantic. Steven told him that he'd given her a lift on his bike to the corner and that she'd hitched a ride on the highway.
When Lynne's body was found in the nearby bush, investigators focused on the 14-year-old who seemed to have been the last person to see her alive. It was ridiculous, Mrs. BRENNAN knew. Her tall, handsome and shy second son, who excelled at track and field and liked to fish in his spare time, couldn't have committed the grisly crime he was accused of. How could the authorities, whom she'd always respected, pin this horror on him?
She would learn to fight back, grimly and with a singular sense of purpose. She fought through his arraignment and his trial, sitting behind him and whispering words of encouragement and testifying that with four active kids, she had to do laundry more than once a week and that a dirty pair of jeans was not exceptional.
She fought against the shocking sentence to hang by his neck until he was dead (later commuted to life in prison), and she fought all the way up to the Supreme Court of Canada to have the conviction overturned. She fought without help from the air force, even as her family moved from Clinton into a secondhand trailer in a park near the small-town Ontario jail where her son was first held. And throughout, she fought to keep her family together and to shield her other children from the trauma.
"She instilled in Steven the air force way: Keep your emotions in check, stand firm in the face of adversity and never back down," said investigative journalist Julian Sher, who chronicled the family's struggle in the book Until You Are Dead. "She was efficient, she was dedicated, she was a whirlwind and she was to be reckoned with."
Mrs. BRENNAN once told Mr. Sher that she had to draw on all of her military grit to survive. "I think being a serviceperson, you learn to accept things more and make do with what you have," she recalled. "Your world has turned completely around, but you push it to the back of your mind and you look ahead. Nothing more could happen that could be worse, so it's got to get better."
But it wouldn't get better, not for a long time.
Born Doris BOWERS, Mrs. BRENNAN was an air force child herself. Her father was an engineer and worked at one point on an air-sea rescue boat. Dan TRUSCOTT, whom she met in 1942, worked on that boat, too; he first came by the BOWERS home as a family friend but soon dropped all pretence as the relationship with Doris heated up. The couple married and had four children.
Along the way, they were stationed for various periods on bases near Vancouver, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Quebec City and Rivers, Manitoba, where they lived in a shack with an outdoor toilet. It wasn't an easy life, but Mrs. BRENNAN had been ready all her life to take on the challenges of raising a family within the confines of the military. New schools and new Friends were par for the course.
Her son's arrest and what followed turned everything she knew on its head. After the trial, she worked at three part-time jobs, in a bakery, a grocery store and a cafeteria, to help keep the family afloat and to pay for gas for the monthly car trips to and from Collins Bay Penitentiary near Kingston, where Steven would serve the bulk of his sentence.
Mac STIENBURG, the Collins Bay chaplain who became a surrogate father to Mr. TRUSCOTT in prison and with whom the young man first lived when he was paroled, said the parents never let him see how scared and frustrated they were.
"They would spend time in the chapel and they'd pass on family tidbits, keeping him up to date," Mr. STIENBURG said. "They had very natural, newsy conversations. They never got into that 'poor you' or 'poor me' mindset."
The chaplain, now retired, said his most poignant memory of the mother and son was her visit in May, 1967, after they'd lost a Supreme Court bid to have the verdict overturned. After placing their faith in the ability of the judges to recognize the case as a circumstantial fiction, she was devastated, but Mr. STIENBURG said that didn't stop her driving out to the prison to speak to Mr. TRUSCOTT face to face.
"It was after-hours and because of the way it was happening, I was granted permission to monitor the visit," he recalled. "She did the exact right thing. She said, 'This isn't the end of it. We'll go on and see what we can do.' She was so strong and determined, sitting there in this cold visiting room, and I think Steve drew strength from her."
Indeed, Mrs. BRENNAN grasped at any chance to clear her son's name. When Isabel LeBourdais, a Toronto journalist, first wrote to the Truscotts to express her interest in writing a magazine exposé about why a 14-year-old would be tried as an adult and given the death penalty, the two women began to forge a Friendship made stronger by the fact that Ms. LeBourdais had a son only a little older than Mr. TRUSCOTT.
Ms. LeBourdais eventually decided that the story was one of wrongful conviction and too big to tell within the limited scope of a magazine. Instead, she wrote The Trial of Steven Truscott, a book she dedicated to Mrs. BRENNAN "with affection and profound respect."
"It really summed up their relationship," said the author's son, Julien LeBourdais. "They were two mothers with sons close in age and one of the things we always say to people is, 'I know how you feel.' But we don't really know. We can't know. You can only feel awe."
No matter how strong Mrs. BRENNAN was, the ordeal did take its toll. At one point, she took tranquilizers to get through the long days and even longer nights, while Mr. STIENBURG said she was disappointed by administrative decisions that her son must live under an assumed name when he was paroled and that he must live with the chaplain instead of coming home.
Her marriage to Dan TRUSCOTT unravelled while their son was in prison, a casualty of the pressure. Although she married again, the union didn't last and she spent her latter years living outside Ottawa near three of her children.
In an e-mail sent to supporters, Mr. TRUSCOTT's wife, Marlene, wrote that Mrs. BRENNAN was an inspiration to them all. Although the family declined to make any further comment, it seems clear she will be remembered as the fierce, stalwart mother who refused to give up on her son - the mother who, last summer, finally saw justice done when the Ontario Court of Appeal quashed the conviction, calling it a "miscarriage of justice."
She lived long enough to see it and for that, she was happy.
Doris (Dot) BRENNAN died at the Ottawa Heart Institute on December 17, 2007. She was 82. She is survived by children Ken (Lenora), Steven (Marlene), Bill (Carol) and Barb, and grandchildren David, Dwayne, Ryan, Leslie, Devon, Crystal and Tom.
