CLARK, Alexander Barry " Arch"
On Wednesday, July 2, 2008, Barry succumbed to a 12 month battle with lung and brain cancer which was diagnosed in June of 2007 in Victoria, British Columbia. He was 62 years of age. Since September of 2007 when he was able to return to Saint Thomas, he has been a patient at the Saint Thomas Elgin General Hospital. The wonderful team of Doctor Joel KEENLEYSIDE, Doctor Paula DONAHUE and the exceptional nurses on Units C and D prolonged his life and he was able to enjoy memorable times with family, former teachers and school chums. The family sincerely thanks the afore-mentioned and those who brightened his days with visits and outings. Barry was born in 1933 while his parents, the late Stanley and Agnes (McCALLUM) CLARK, lived in Dutton, Ontario. Shortly after his birth, the family moved to Saint Thomas where Barry attended Scott Street School and later excelled in academia, basketball and volleyball at CECI and Saint Thomas Collegiate Institute. He was fortunate to be able to attend University of Toronto on a full scholarship and graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. He entered the computer field at an exciting time and most of his career as an analyst was spent with International Business Machines Corporation - in Toronto, Montreal, Saint_John, Winnipeg and Calgary. Laterally, he spent his life in beautiful Victoria. He was an avid reader, a lover of jazz and he always kept fit by working out in the gym. Barry's older siblings will hold his memory close to their hearts - Bob (Mary Ellen) CLARK of the Philadephia area, Barb (Ken) TUFF of Saint Thomas, Bill (Patti) CLARK of Toronto and Newfoundland, and Bevin CLARK of Brockville. A special cousin, Doris (Stride) ROULSTON of London, will also hold him dear. Barry's nieces and nephews will always remember him for his quiet, gentle and caring nature - Meri-Sue, Mike (Hollie,) Mark and Margaret (John CONWAY) CLARK; Paul (Karen,) Jane (Bill IDSARDI) and Peter (Shelley) TUFF, Melanie CLARK- HANSEN and Jamie CLARK. Eleanor (McCALLUM) and Don BRANCHFLOWER of Glencoe and Alice (CLARK) COOK of London are his only surviving aunts and uncle. Barry bore his illness with great stoicism and determination. Cremation has taken place (Needham Funeral Service in London) and his ashes will be interred in Cowal Cemetery with his parents and many other family relatives and ancestors, all of whom originally came to the area from Argyleshire, Scotland. A memorial service and the interment of ashes will be held at a later date. Family and Friends will be notified of arrangements. "Always in our hearts"

BUSH, Huntley Henderson " Ley" B.A.Sc., P.Eng.
Veteran World War 2, Royal Canadian Navy
Passed away peacefully on Saturday June 14, 2008 at the Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital at the age of 82, surrounded by his 4 loving daughters; Leslie BUSH- HARRISS, Kimberley GOULD, Kerry COOK, Lindsey DRAGONE. Survived by his wife Dorothy and his sons-in-law Hal GOULD, Mike COOK and Nick DRAGONE. Lovingly remembered by his 8 grandchildren, Daniel HARRISS, Hallie and John GOULD, Jordan and Barrett COOK, Frank, Dana and Cole DRAGONE. Also survived by his sisters Audley (George) JACKSON, North Carolina; Beverley MURRAY, Toronto and Linda BRESNAHAN, Massachusetts, and their children.
Born Verdun, Quebec 1925; served as Seaman for R.C.N. and R.N. and on H.M.C.S. Snowberry 1943-45. Member of P.E.O., A.P.P.E.G.A., I.E.E.E., U.N.T.D. (Upper Canada) and Zeta Delta of Sigma Nu.
Ley grew up in Montreal, and maintained ties with Friends, colleagues and family there after he left to enlist in the Royal Canadian Navy at the age of 17. His service in the navy on the H.M.C.S. Snowberry, and particularly its role during the preparation stages of D-Day, had a profound effect on his life and he continued his association with the Canadian Naval Association until his death. As a veteran, he attended memorial services held in Canada, Normandy and recently at the 60th anniversary of the V.E. Day celebrations in The Netherlands.
Upon his discharge from the service, Ley travelled to Toronto where he met and married Dorothy MOUNTJOY. He then enrolled at the University of Toronto and obtained his Electrical Engineering Degree. He was passionate about his chosen profession and only retired, reluctantly, in his seventies. His career allowed him to indulge another passion: travel, and he worked on many projects abroad, including Europe, Hong Kong and The Phillippines.
Ley and Dorothy had four daughters in quick succession, who subsequently married and provided him with sons-in-law, and eight grandchildren whom he adored. Poppa was devoted to his grandchildren and has left them all very special memories of family ski trips, evenings at the horseraces, and amusing tales and anecdotes from his childhood.
He will be thoroughly missed and his memory cherished.
Ley passed from this life as he lived it: unfailingly civilized, considerate and dignified. Rest in peace Dad.
The Family wishes to thank the staff at Hearthstone by the Lake for their kind care this last year.
Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to The Oakview Funeral Home, 56 Lakeshore Rd. W. Oakville (one block east of Kerr St.) 905-842-2252. Please call for arrangement details.
