LINKLATER, Harold Fraser
Harold Fraser LINKLATER was born on October 1, 1917 in Teeswater, Ontario to Harvey and Gladys (née Mason FRASER) LINKLATER. He was the oldest of three brothers. Until his death all four of them were still living - I'm sure that is a record for four brothers who had survived World War 2. Harold died at 90 and all his brothers are in their 80s. His great-grandparents arrived in Canada from the Orkneys in Scotland in 1852 and some of his great-uncles had come to Canada with the Hudson's Bay Company. The family moved to Kincardine in August 1929 when his father Harvey bought the furniture store and funeral home from W.H.A. MORRISON. He worked helping his father from age 12, but really started that career in 1935 when he finished Grade 12. In 1937-38 he took courses at the Banting Institute and General Hospital in Toronto. At 19 he got his license as an undertaker but couldn't use it until he was 21. He married Nora Elizabeth DIMOND on November 20, 1940. In May 1940 he had joined the Canadian army. He went into Officer training in Brockville and between 1940 to 1943 he was stationed in Ontario, Manitoba and British Columbia. In World War 2 he went overseas in June 1944 before the invasion of France and stayed there until the fall of 1946. He was in the 19th Self-Propelled Regiment. He was a Captain by the time the war ended. His daughter Elizabeth Ann was born in 1949 and son John Douglas in 1951. He was a Rover Scout and became a cub and scout leader. He was on the Kincardine Public School Board for 10 years, belonged to the Rotary Club, the Kinsmen, the Masonic Lodge and was president of the Chamber of Commerce for two years and received an award. In 1970 he was chairman of the Old Boy's and Girls Reunion Committee and won the award of Citizen of the Year. He cherished the silver tray that he was given to him with that inscription. The award was reported in the London Free Press. Ballots were received from as far away as Michigan and from across the province. It was the largest number of ballots at that time and 70 percent voted for him. His pride and joy was the cottage he built on Crab Cove near Red Bay. He bought the lakefront property in 1952 for $350 and in 1953 he and his neighbour Ed HAGEDORN put up the frame. He worked both at the Linklater Funeral Home and the Linklater Furniture Store. From 1966 to 1974 he owned and operated the funeral business by himself. In 1974 at age 57 he sold the Funeral business although he helped the new owner in the summers for 4-5 years afterwards. In 1974 he and Nora bought a place in Lakeland, Florida and started going there in the winters in 1975. Nora died on his birthday, October 1, 1988 after a 48-year marriage. He married Helen Emma HAYES (née COULSON) of Saint Thomas and Lakeland, Florida on July 22 1989. He and Helen lived at the cottage until September 2000 and in Owen Sound since then. They wintered in Lakeland until 1995 when Harold got cancer of the jaw. He survived that as he did a heart attack, strokes, blindness, and several operations. He was tenacious and had a tremendous will to live through all of these ailments until April 2008 when he accepted he was failing. Perhaps being a funeral director had given him this will to live because he had to live with death around him for so many years. Harold is survived by his beloved wife Helen, his daughter Elizabeth (Liza) and her husband James TROTTIER of Manila, Philippines, his son Douglas (Doug) of Red Bay, his grandchildren Jesse and Dane of Barrie, his brothers Ken (and Reita) of Kincardine, Bryce (and Alma) of Jarvis and Gordon (and Joan) of Toronto, and his former daughter-in-law, Dianne LINKLATER of Kincardine; his step-family Helen (and Bert) WRAY of Durham and their children Marla (and Lee) ZWOLMAN of Milton, Kevin and David WRAY; and to Marg NICHOL (and Gerald) of Brampton, Donald FINDLAY (and Teresa) of Campbell River, British Columbia and William FINDLAY (and Gazelle) of Winnipeg; as well as everyone's children and many grandchildren, great- and great-great-grandchildren. Heartfelt thanks and affection are extended to dearest Helen, Helen and Bert WRAY of Durham, Fern and Ken FYNN, Linda CRANDALL and Ab LIPSETT and Mary VAN TRIGT, all of Owen Sound for their loving care and assistance over the last years. A memorial service took place on Monday May 5 at the Kincardine cemetery and was followed by a reception at Knox Presbyterian Church. Arrangements were made by Harold's friend Tom WHITCROFT of the Thomas C. Whitcroft Funeral Home and Chapel in Sauble Beach. Donations can be made to the charity of your choice.

ZIMMERMAN, William " Bill" Martin
Born 1930 in Winnipeg, died in Vancouver March 29th, 2008. A graduate of Kelvin High School and the University of Manitoba (M.S.W./56), Bill was an athlete, an actor (MTC; U of M) and a social worker in Winnipeg and Ottawa. As a probation officer at Winnipeg's Juvenile Court, Bill found delinquent youth were the invariable result of families lacking access to services he thought communities should provide. When he moved to Ottawa with his own family, he joined the city's Social Planning Council to help address those needs. He soon discovered that stronger financial support was required by Ottawa-Hull United Way agencies. As director of the United Way for 13 years, he believed strongly that its funds should be determined by the communities' needs rather than by donors' choice. Privately, as a jazz fan and a sports enthusiast, he was expert in the arcana of both. In his retirement in Sechelt, British Columbia, Bill found a fellow sports buff in Gilbert Joe, an elder with the Sechelt Indian Band, whose memory he chose to honour by assembling a unique collection of photos of aboriginal athletes, now a permanent exhibition at the town's Kinnikinnick Elementary School. Bill's positive personality, which found humour even in dialysis units and hospital wards, sustained him to the end. Bill is survived by his wife Sheila, and their children Kate, John and Frances, sons-in-law Ron SHEWCHUK and Peter FINDLAY, and four grandchildren, Zoe and Jake SHEWCHUK, Audrey and Georgia FINDLAY, as well as his sister Betty ZIMMERMAN. He was predeceased by his brother, Jack. Among those who will miss him are his sisters-in-law, Elspeth NICKERSON, Catherine MONTROSE, Ann YOUNG, Hellie WILSON and Florence BROWNRIDGE. A memorial for Bill is planned for this July. Condolences to the family may be sent to billzimm2008@gmail.com

FINEDAY--In loving memory of our mother, Rita, April 30, 2007.
No one knows how much we miss you,
No one knows the bitter pain
We have suffered, since we lost you
Life has never been the same.
In our heart your memory lingers
Sweetly tender, fond and true,
There is not a day, dear mother,
That we do not think of you.
Lovingly remembered by Darren, Jackie, Aaron, Nathan, Bradley, Lance, Cassandra and Monica.
