I leave behind my devoted and adoring wife of 47 years Diane (TREMBLAY,) and my 5 loving children and their spouses. Jerry Jr. and his wife Roxanne (ANTAYA,) Terry and his wife Terryanne (CARROLL,) Mark and his wife Sherri (SMITH,) Michelle and her husband Jim (MERRIFIELD,) Nicole and her husband Dany (JACQUES.) I will continue to watch over my beautiful grandchildren that gave me more joy than I ever thought possible - Jessica and John DANIEL, Kyle and Brittany DANIEL and Brandi and Daniel LEWIS, Tara and Mitchell DANIEL, Mark and Matthew MERRIFIELD and "Peanut" Jacques as well as my sister Pat PROUSE of Ingersoll. I have been reunited with those who went before including my mom Delia (GATES) 1989 and dad Naboth 1996. My life has been full and blessed. I was fortunate to love my chosen career in broadcasting which spanned over 40 years. Starting at CFCO in Chatham, CHOK in Sarnia, SJCS Stratford, CFPL London, and finally CKOT Tillsonburg where I forged many lifelong Friendships. I also derived joy from my many years of DJ work. It is hard to imagine the number of first dance songs I played for newlyweds over the years and the people who knew me by my unique speakers. I express special thanks to our family physician Doctor Kelly SHAUGHNESSEY who was a tremendous support throughout and the loving care given by the Alexandra Hospital staff. In regards to my illness I am indebted to Woodstock Urologist Doctor VOGALIN and excellent medical staff at the London Regional Cancer Centre including Doctor Mary McKENZIE and her assistants Grace and Paul.

Community Care Access Centre and their dedicated caring staff allowed me to spend my final days at home with my family where I wanted to be. God Bless You. God Bless the seen and unseen Angels who kept me and my family in their prayers. I would be remiss not to mention the tremendous sacrifices that my family and extended family members have made while on my journey. Love heals. Friends will be received at the McBeath-Dynes Funeral Home, 246 Thames Street South, Ingersoll Wednesday 7-9 p.m. and Thursday 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Knights of Columbus prayers Thursday @ 6: 30 p.m. Parish Prayers Thursday @ 8: 45 p.m. Funeral Mass will be held at Sacred Heart Church, Ingersoll Friday June 6th, 2008 at 11: 00 a.m. Interment to follow Sacred Heart Cemetery.

KEEGAN, John Ronald
(July 11, 1932 To January 20, 2008)
To measure a Man… Is to sum up his accomplishments in but a few simple phrases. Those whose impact was greatest on family and Friends tend to need fewer songs of praise. Dad always knew there was another chance to change an outcome. Growing up the eldest of 5, with precious few amenities, he learned to effect situations through force of will. Above all else he understood the value of family and revelled in all our accomplishments great and small. He loved talking about his family, a clean car, a good hockey fight, the market and the colour yellow. Always well dressed, he respected others who took care of their first impression shined shoes and well tied ties were a quick gauge to your worth. Setting the tone for any situation he added flair when none existed. When we attended hockey games he refereed we always remembered never to tell the fans our Dad was the referee and we'll never forget the police escorts after junior games in Greenfield Park and St. Lambert. He loved his business and as a Trader his execution was legendary, He knew how to make a pro short a position on his bid and be grateful. He never liked to politic, but knew it so well he taught us to taunt the sharks we swim with in whatever waters we may find ourselves. His greatest accomplishment was that his children assumed their successes without doubt. With great sorrow, much love and admiration he will be deeply missed and always remembered by his loving and devoted wife of 54 years Beverley (née RANDLE,) daughter Deborah; sons Michael and wife Joanne (née VIENS) Randy and wife Deborah (née KREGZDE). Grandad, you will always be close in heart and thought to grandchildren Erin, Lauren, Katherine, Tyler and Jordyn. Predeceased my mother and father John and Kitty (née MERRIFIELD) KEEGAN, and will be sadly missed by brothers Gord and Billy and sister Joan. A Memorial Celebration will be held Friday, January 25th, 2008 at 2: 00 p.m. at Garden Hill Funeral Chapel, 11765 224th Street, Maple Ridge, British Columbia. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Pacific Parkinson's Research Institute or Ridge Meadows Hospital. The measure isn't in the words but the tears on the page… Expressions of sympathy can be made at www.gardenhill.ca

MacPHERSON, Bruce Edward, M.D.
Born in Toronto on September 8, 1920 to Edna MITCHELL and Arnold William MacPHERSON, Bruce died peacefully on January 10, 2008 in the Almonte General Hospital. He is survived by his wife Pauline, his children Michael (Jean,) Sandra (John MERTENS,) Elizabeth (Lars DANIELSSON,) Arnold (Karin,) grandchildren Andrew (Beth,) Matthew (Fiona), Dan, Eric, Henry, Robert, Louisa, and great-grandchild Emily. He is survived also by his four sisters, Joan CRAWFORD, Jean HILL, Mary FLEMING/FLEMMING and Ada MORRIS, and their families. He will be missed by Aunt Pauline's kin, Annalee, Ed and Emma LADOUCEUR, Lisa, Bill, Kelly and Katie RICHARDSON, and Pat and Ken BELBECK and family. Bruce grew up in Saint Thomas Ontario where he met and later married Mary Pauline RICHARDSON. Like his father, Bruce took his medical degree at the University of Toronto, graduating in 1950. He practiced for many years as a family physician in Weston, Ontario and at the Humber Memorial Hospital, and also served as physician for Orenda Engines and at the United Cooperatives of Ontario. He retired in 2000 at age eighty. Bruce served overseas flying Spitfires with Royal Canadian Air Force 412 Squadron first in Britain and later in Europe after D-Day. He flew with Royal Air Force 93 Squadron in North Africa. In 1942 he survived a voyage to Murmansk (PQ 16) as a Hurricat pilot with Merchant Ship Fighter Unit on the Camship Empire Lawrence, and was mentioned in dispatches when she was sunk as a result of enemy action. Bruce was a Prisoner of War for the last few months of the war. He truly appreciated the lifelong Friends he made from his adventures. Bruce demonstrated exceptional grace during his final years, living with Parkinson's. He was a gentleman, genuinely interested in people, forever active and curious about the world, humble about himself, and in Pauline's words, "always so much fun". We shall all miss him dearly. A memorial service will be held at a later date. Donations in memory of Bruce to the Parkinson Society Canada, Canadian National Institute for the Blind, Arthritis Society Canada, or the Almonte General Hospital.
