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".

BURTCH, Rev. Hugh C.
It is with regret and sadness that we must report the death of our father, the Rev. Hugh C. BURTCH, former Minister of Grace and Fairmont United Churches in London, at the age of 86 years at Stratford General Hospital, on Friday, February 15, 2008. Dad died of Kidney Disease as a result of a 20 year battle with Diabetes. Our Father was born and raised in the east end of Hamilton, on Tregina Ave. and also lived on Mary Street as a teenager. He attended Ballard Public School and The Eastern High School of Commerce, wherein he excelled in Sports, Hockey, Baseball and Pole Vaulting. He was an All-Ontario Pole Vaulter for 1934, 1935 and 1936, one of his Coaches being the legendary Cyl Apps. Dad was ordained into the Ministry of the United Church in 1958, though he had been a Student Minister from 1951 in Sarnia, Ontario at St. Luke's United when it was on Parkview. His last Pastoral Charge, (or so he thought) was in Hamilton, east end only a few blocks from where he was born and raised, the twinned Charge of St. David's United and Fairfield on Barton Street. He retired or so he thought in 1986 from the active ministry which he loved so much. Once in Stratford, Ontario, the birthplace of our Mother Mary Helen DAVIDSON, who pre-deceased Dad in the year 2000, Dad very quickly discovered that "retirement" was a relative term, for he found himself becoming "interim" minister of Centennial United, also filled in at Ontario Street Baptist Church, and to some amusement on his part, also in the Presbyterian Church in Shakespeare, but he very quickly became enamoured of the people there, and they treated him very well, very well indeed. Dad died quietly and with dignity, which mirrored his life. He did not like any fuss made over his life or profession. Dad just called it "doing the job to which he was called." The funeral will be held at Central United Church, on Saturday, February, 23rd. Donations to the Kidney Foundation would be appreciated. W.G. Young Funeral Home, Stratford.
