MacIVER, Alexander John " Jack"

Also mourning his loss are his 16 grandchildren, Meghan, Drewe, John-James, Tyler, Ryan, Shelley, Douglas, Andrew, Alexandria, Ryan, Susan, Zachery, Danielle, Shauna, Jonmikal and Seth. The annual fishing trips to northern Manitoba including Knee Lake and Bolton Lake will long live in their memories. Jack was predeceased by his sister Margaret and his brother A.B.C. (Bruce). Also left to remember him are Jack's sisters, Francis BALLINGALL of Tawassen, British Columbia and Diane MacDONALD of Winnipeg. He is remembered with fondness by Terri, Bryan, Melissa, Nicole and Michael of Los Angeles; his sisters-in-law Anne LOREQUE of New Mexico, Edna STORSATER (Ralph) of Montreal and Phyllis MacIVER of Winnipeg, along with his many nieces and nephews. Jack was born in Winnipeg on November 9th 1924 where he resided all of his life. Educated at Linwood School in St James, he joined the R.C.N.V.R. in the spring of 1943. While on active duty following the 'D' day operations his ship, the HMCS Trentonian was sunk in February 1945. Upon his return from the war he married his long time sweetheart Mary BUTCHART on November 10, 1945. Over the years, Jack remained in contact with his few surviving shipmates. He recently visited his friend and shipmate Vince HADLEY (Ivey) at their home in White Rock, British Columbia. Jack was responsible for publishing the history of the HMCS Trentonian. Jack found his calling in the automotive industry. A self made businessman Jack became owner and dealer principal of Midway Chrysler Plymouth in August 1969. Jack was recognized as the Time Life Dealer of the year in 1985. He was best known for the slogan 'where you're the boss' and the Midway jingle that followed. Jack loved Winnipeg and Winnipeggers. He was generous in giving back to his community. Often he was the anonymous benefactor for those in need especially when children and summer camps were involved. Over the years Jack remained involved in many organizations; and continued his association as past president of the Winnipeg Lions Club, the St. Andrews Society of Winnipeg, and the Manitoba Motor Dealers Association. For many years Jack served on Chrysler Canada's dealer advisory council. He was also actively involved in many civic and charitable organizations; through the Shriners [and Jesters] Ducks Unlimited, the Fort Whyte Society and as one of the few 60 year pin holders with the Masonic Temple. He also enjoyed his long time membership with cohorts in the Passwa Club and with the Winnipeg 'mafia' brain stormers. Jack was a Board member of MPIC and the Associates of the Asper School of Business. He was a lifetime member of the Progressive Conservative Party of Manitoba. Jack was a very active member of Knox United Church. He spent many years as chairman of the board of the Duval Foundation. He volunteered his energy and efforts to many diverse projects throughout the City and particularly with and through HMS Chippewa. He was gratified to learn that his last volunteer effort would also be a success when the City announced that permission had been granted for a parade honouring cadets from all levels of the armed forces [air, sea and land] to be celebrated for the first time in June 2008. Jack enjoyed many activities having been a long time member of the Winnipeg Winter Club, the Carlton Club, the Manitoba Club and St. Charles Golf and Country Club. He enjoyed his recognition as a select member of the 'hole in one' club. His favourite place of all was sitting with Mary by the fireplace at their second home at Block 12 Falcon Lake where he surrounded himself with his many Friends and family. He loved the sound of the loons in the evening. The grandchildren especially remember the sauna to warm up in after the thrilling tube rides behind the boat driven by Uncle Dave. The family would like to extend a sincere and heartfelt thank you to the Doctors, Nurses and Unit Staff of the Health Sciences Centre on 4GD for all their support during Jack's brief stay. A celebration of the life of A.J. 'Jack' MacIVER will be held in Winnipeg on Thursday May 15th, at 11: 00 a.m. at Knox United Church 400 Edmonton Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba. Interment to follow at Chapel Lawn Memorial Gardens - 4000 Portage Ave., Winnipeg, Manitoba. If Friends so desire donations may be made to the Canadian National Institute for the Blind, 1080 Portage Avenue, R3G 3M3 or the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 200 - 6 Donald Street, R3L 0K6.

DIRKS, Gerald Edward (1942-2008)
It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden and unexpected death of Gerry at home in Victoria, British Columbia on February 28, 2008. Gerry is survived and deeply mourned by his loving wife Pat; devoted mother, Esther; sister and brother-in-law, Ruby and Bill BOECHLER and sister-in-law, Roberta REID. He will also be sorely missed by his nephews Jason BUTCHER (husband of Maureen, father of Madigan) and Matthew BUTCHER (husband of Jenny.) Also bereaved are his goddaughters Maud Arthur and Emma MICHIELSEN, his extended family and many Friends, former students and colleagues. Gerry was predeceased by his father Edward DIRKS.
Gerry lived a remarkable life. In spite of loosing his sight entirely at an early age, he was able, with strong family support, to graduate from the University of British Columbia and to go on to complete an M.A. at Queen's University and to earn a Ph. D. from the University of Toronto. In addition to a long and successful teaching career in the Politics department at Brock University, Gerry published extensively on the subject of Canadian immigration and refugee policy. After taking early retirement in 2002, Gerry returned with Pat to his beloved British Columbia, taught a few courses at the University of Victoria, made new Friends and travelled extensively with Pat which he so loved to do.
In addition to his professional achievements, Gerry made a significant contribution to the Canadian National Institute for the Blind both as a volunteer Board member and, for a short period in 1984-85, as Executive Director of the Ontario Division. He played a central role in the establishment of Voiceprint in Canada and worked to improve the lives of the blind in other parts of the world through his involvement in the World Blind Union and his support of the World Braille Foundation.
Although he left us much too soon, Gerry died looking forward to the trips he was planning to take next and to the fine wines he was sure he would discover! We will all miss his sense of adventure, his loyalty to family and Friends and his witty humour.
No service by request. Celebrations of Gerry's life are being planned for Victoria in the late spring and for Ontario in the early summer. For those who wish, memorial donations may be made to a charity of your choice.

EVANS, Kenneth Warren
Passed away peacefully on Saturday, February 9, 2008 in the Palliative Care Unit of Parkwood Hospital, London, Ontario, with his wife, Marianne, by his side. Ken was born in Montreal, August 31, 1926, an only child to the late Albert EVANS and Dora THORNE. At the age of fourteen Ken and his parents moved to Toronto where he attended Oakwood Collegiate Institute. At age seventeen he left school and embarked on a fifty-two year career in the property/casualty insurance industry. His first job was with the venerable old British firm, the Union Insurance Society of Canton on King Street. Ken began as a clerk in the accounting department and eventually became a marine underwriter. This Company spawned many success stories in the property/casualty insurance industry. Due to a General Manager by the name of Jim Price, who died suddenly, a group was formed to honour his memory and was named 'The Old Cantonese Society'. This group met yearly at a black tie dinner in a downtown Toronto hotel and was officially disbanded after 40 years. In 1944, and shortly after his eighteenth birthday Ken enlisted in the Army during World War 2 he never left Canadian soil and did the usual training but, alas, the War ended in 1945 and he was as discharged. Upon release from service he returned to the Union of Canton. He was an articulate and well read man with a sharp wit and a penchant for silly humour. His interest in music was catholic and open-minded, ranging from E. Power Biggs to Frank Sinatra, Neil Young and the Beatles. Ken enjoyed many late hours with his father philosophizing and listening to their shared taste in music over a bottle of Remy Martin. His son, George, also had the good fortune to spend many late hours with his father, and listening to a new brand of music that Ken eventually embraced. He moved to The Travelers Insurance Company and was eventually appointed Assistant Manager for Canada. In 1969 he was asked to take over the Canadian Operation of the Reliance Insurance Co. of Philadelphia. In 1973 Ken was asked to join The Insurance Corporation of Ireland (Canada) Ltd. of which he was so proud because he had birthed and nurtured the Canadian Operation and, ultimately, was devastated by its shut down due to overseas in-house problems in the London office. Over a twelve year period Ken was appointed Chief Executive Officer of the Canadian Operation. He enjoyed over twenty years of membership at Markland Wood Country Club. His group of four golfing buddies was known as the T.A.T.S. Group (That's A True Story). They enjoyed each other's company and shared a lot of laughter together, with some golf thrown in for good measure. Ken is the last member of that group to pass on. He is predeceased by former wife Ethel. Together, they raised three children - Warren, Victoria and George (Hazel); grandfather to Michael Warren, Louisa and Noah. A man who was known to take a drink, Ken had enormous stamina and drive and loved to be the last man to leave the party. He was also regarded as a man of integrity and, with all the success that he enjoyed in business, he never lost the common touch. But the last years were not kind to Ken as his body succumbed to a lifetime of hard work, drinking and smoking. He will be lovingly remembered by his devoted wife, Marianne GENISE, who nursed him throughout his long illness. His adored Labrador, Bella, was a constant source of comfort and joy to him. Special thanks to Hospice of London; Personal Support Workers Saffie, Linda and Helen; Doctor Maurice BUTCHEY (who's sartorial attire Ken always admired;) nurses Cheryl, Barb, Liz and Mary in the Palliative Care Unit of Parkwood Hospital. Special thanks, also, to wonderful Friends for their tireless devotion throughout Ken's illness; the daily phone calls, chauffeuring, visiting, meals, meals and more meals, really good humour and, of course, caring for our Bella. Visitation will be held at the Westview Funeral Chapel, 709 Wonderland Road North, on Friday from 2: 00-4:00 p.m. and 7:00-9:00 p.m. A Celebration of Ken's life will be conducted at Saint Paul's Cathedral, 472 Richmond Street, on Saturday, February 16th, 2008 at 1: 30 p.m. with Archdeacon D. Ian Grant officiating. Cremation with interment of ashes at Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Toronto at a later date. If so desired, donations may be made to Hospice of London. 'death is not the end'

FRASER, James Kenneth " Ken"
Friday, December 14 a funeral service was held to celebrate the 96 year life of James Kenneth FRASER. Ken passed away suddenly at Grey Gables, Markdale on December 11 with his wife of 71 years, Elva, by his side.
Ken was born on Lot 36, Concession 9 of Proton Township, September 4, 1911. He was the fourth son of James A. FRASER and Elizabeth WALTON, brother of Albert, Jack, Mel and Lena McQUARRIE, who have predeceased him. Ken attended S.S.#10 school and went on to graduate from King Edward High School in Dundalk. He married Elva HENDRY, daughter of William HENDRY and Emma PALLISTER on September 12, 1936 and took over the farm where he was born. Ken and Elva raised four children, Maxine, Margaret, Don and Harvey. In 1973 they retired from farming and moved to Dundalk. In 2003 Ken and Elva moved to Grey Gables, where Ken enjoyed the community of residents and care people there.
Ken was truly a man of the soil, he began farming, ploughing the fields with a one and two furrow plough and horses. He purchased his first tractor in 1945, with his father-in-law. During his time of farming he saw many changes. There was nothing fairer to Ken than a clean field of grain waving in the wind or a new born calf frolicking in the pasture, (especially if it was a shorthorn). His passion was farming, and he loved the land and took pride in what he could do with it. When he left the farm Ken worked for Gohcon, a farm tilling company, for a few years and found this enjoyable as he still worked with the land and had a chance to see many farms of the area. His vegetable garden and his roses were his pride and joy during his retirement time in Dundalk and kept him busy, when he wasn't lawn bowling, in the summertime.
Ken enjoyed a game of cards and was a regular visitor to the little card room in Dundalk. He was noted for introducing the euchre game pepper to Grey Gables. Ken took great interest in what was going on in the world and faithfully read the newspapers and watched the news. Quite often reminding his family of what was up in politics and clueing them in on things they should be aware of. He was always standing up for the agriculture community, even in the last three weeks of his life, when he took up the torch, that they should have butter on the tables at Grey Gables. So with a petition he went the rounds of the residents and staff and made a presentation to administration. It was received and butter was put on the tables. Ken being who he was went one step further and wrote a letter to Gay Lea congratulating them on their 50th anniversary, and of course informed them of what he had done at Grey Gables. He also made note that he had been on the United Dairy and Poultry Board which was the beginning of Gay Lea. A week after his passing a package came from Gay Lea with four pounds of butter and a 50th anniversary limited edition of a Gay Lea truck. This was Ken FRASER to the end.
Ken devoted not only his time to farm and family, but to his community and his church. He served 11 years as a director of the Dundalk Agricultural Society and a term as president, and was 4-H Calf Club leader during that time. One of his proudest moments of his later years was opening the 150th Anniversary of Dundalk Fair in 2005. He was a director on the Dundalk Co-Op, and a director on the Grey County Hog Producers. Ken was a trustee on Proton Township School Board, and seven years on Proton Township Council. He attended Knox Presbyterian Church at Ventry where he served on the board of managers, and also served as an elder of Erskine Presbyterian Church, Dundalk. After moving to Grey Gables, Ken was active on the residence council.
Rev. Mark DAVIDSON, minister of Erskine Church and Rev. John HOGERWAARD, former minister of Erskine, officiated at the service in Erskine Presbyterian Church, Dundalk. Service commenced with Psalm 100, a Psalm of thanksgiving. Hymns sang were "All the Way My Saviour Leads Me", "And Can It Be That I Should Gain" and "Beyond the Sunset". Scripture read by granddaughter Christine BUTLER was Psalm 23, 1st Corinthians 15: 55-57 and Romans 8:35-39. Rev. John HOGERWAARD gave a meditation "A Living Hope" that Hope being through Jesus Christ, and Him alone. Memories were given by grandchildren Shawn WALTER, Brent FRASER and son Harvey FRASER. Rob SCOTT, grand_son, sang "In the Bulb There is a Flower." Pallbearers were grand_sons, Brent FRASER, Shawn WALTER, Richard FRASER, Rob SCOTT, grand_son-in-law Henry REINDERS and great-grand_son Mark REINDERS. Flowerbearers were granddaughters, Christine BUTLER, Shelley KRAUTH, Shirley REINDERS and Julie BARRETT.
Ken leaves behind his wife Elva, daughters Maxine (Bob) SCOTT and Margaret (Ray) WALTER and sons Don (Cay) FRASER and Harvey (Terry) FRASER, nine grandchildren, predeceased by one, and nine great-grandchildren.
The many people who paid their respects at the time of Ken's passing would have been received with great appreciation by Ken. He was among a generation that there are few remaining. And many of them who have been great examples of lives well spent no matter what the challenge was before them. Harvey FRASER, youngest of the family, summed it all up when he said "Dad, you were one of a kind, and you leave big footsteps to follow".
