PARRISH, Archibald Ralph
Died June 19th in Burnaby, British Columbia, of congestive heart failure after a short illness. Born in Chatham, Ontario April 17, 1923 to Margaret and Merle PARRISH, Ralph was the 4th of 6 children whose work ethic bore the imprint of the MacNaughton tartan. He graduated from Queens University in 1947. Lover of light, music and lifelong learning, Ralph worked and played predominantly on the West Coast, reserving the biting eastern cold for seasonal celebrations with family and piping hot meals. Music and family were, beyond all, the lights of his life. His opus now complete, its resonance tolls through the generations. His heart rests now, with Eleanore's, the silence between the notes. Surviving are his sister Eileen, daughter Joan and son-in-law Steve COBBOLD, son Rob and daughter-in-law Marian, son Dave, and grandchildren Sarah and Peter COBBOLD, Evan and Stephanie PARRISH, and Andreas IRION. As the Duke was wont to say… "We love you madly.In" lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation."

Collingwood historian Don PARRISH dies
PARRISH key in implementing Harbourland project
By John EDWARDS, Page 3
Well-known Collingwood resident Don PARRISH died on February 12, at Southlake Regional Health Centre in Newmarket.
He was 77
PARRISH worked at the Collingwood Shipyards for more than 40 years and was an avid historian.
According to Deputy Mayor Sandra COOPER, who knew PARRISH all of her life, he often volunteered at the museum and was an active member of the Harbourlands committee. COOPER said PARRISH was instrumental in putting together the path of hull plates from Huron Street to the harbour.
Former Mayor Terry GEDDES, who gave the eulogy at PARRISH's funeral, said he will be sadly missed.
"When he died, not only did a piece of his family die, but so did a piece of Collingwood," GEDDES said. "It's the Don PARRISH's that made Collingwood the community it is."
PARRISH was an avid sports fan, having played hockey for the Stayner Royals and was regularly seen at Collingwood Blues games. He was a fan of the Boston Bruins and Red Sox.
"You'd always see him with a Boston ball cap on," she said.
He was married to Yvonne and was a father to Stephanie, Donna and Brenda and grandfather to Nathan, Brandon, Kayla, Becca, Ryan and Lexi. He is predeceased by his brothers Gordon and Gary.

MYHAL, John
After 87 years of a very full and robust life, John MYHAL passed away at Saint_Joseph's Lifecare Centre on Sunday July 7th, 2008. He is survived and forever rejoiced in by his wife Doris, his children Cheryle OLDROYD (Laurie), Beverly GRENVILLE- MYHAL (Allan HUTCHINSON/HUTCHISON,) Gregory MYHAL (Hoa,) and Denise PARRY (Roger,) as well as by his sisters Helen MANTON and Pauline BONYUN. He was a favourite 'Grandad Johnny' to his many loving grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Predeceased by his sisters Kay ROPER, Anne BARNES, and big brother Mike MYHAL. John attended Brantford Collegiate Institute and served in the Royal Canadian Air Force during the war. After 1945, he returned to Brantford and began his cabinetmaking career on Richardson Street where he created his woodworking masterpieces for the next 60 years. Examples of his superb craftsmanship grace numerous homes and businesses throughout Brant County. In the summer, when not 'at the shop', John could be found perfecting his other passion on the local golf fair ways. He was a formidable opponent, but always a more generous friend and playing partner - he achieved his treasured 'hole in one' late on in his career at the Burford Golf Links. John will be loved and remembered by all for his bighearted spirit, his corny sense of humour, and always 'being there' for family and Friends. Please join our family in celebrating John's modest, but still remarkable and exemplary life. If a man's life can be measured by the firmness and warmth of his handshake, then John had no equal. Visitation will be held at McCleister Funeral Home, 495 Park Rd. N. Brantford, on Friday from 7-9 p.m. And Saturday from 3-5 p.m. A Memorial Service will take place in the Chapel on Saturday at 5: 00 p.m. As expressions of sympathy, donations in John's memory made to the Grand River Conservation Foundation would be appreciated.

WALKER, Robert Kenneth
A year has past
And our memories are all that last.
A man who was approachable, understanding and caring
A true farmer with his work boots, always wearing
He was the real thing.
Wisdom, knowledge, guidance, dedication and laughter are the things he would bring with whatever he did, to whomever he met, and wherever he went.
This is the type of man that is hard to find and we will remember
He was a man that we know and love
A Father, Grandfather, Mentor and Friend,
Robert Kenneth WALKER was all the above.

PARTINGTON o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2008-01-03 published
EVENS, Mary Edith (formerly HAMMOND, née BUCKLIN)
Beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend slipped away peacefully December 23, 2007 in Victoria, B.C.
Predeceased by husbands Reginald Ellery Percy HAMMOND and Clifford Wallis EVENS, sisters Velma, Adele, Margaret, brother Edwin. She leaves children Jean EDGE- PARTINGTON (John) of Creston, British Columbia, Glen HAMMOND (Catherine SCOTT) of Chemainus, British Columbia, Lynne HAMMOND of Ottawa, Ontario, grandchildren Michael EDGE-PARTINGTON, David EDGE- PARTINGTON, Robin EDGE- PARTINGTON, Chrissy HAMMOND and Ted HAMMOND, 8 great-grandchildren, numerous nieces and nephews.
She was the last surviving member of the BUCKLIN family who emigrated from England to Rhode Island in the early 1600's.
The daughter of U.S. Consul-General George Augustus BUCKLIN Jr. and mother Emiline PORTER from Keene, Ontario, her extraordinary life began February 10, 1911 in Guatemala City, Guatemala. Her childhood was spent in France, Germany, Mexico, Canada and New Zealand; she spoke 4 languages by the age of ten. She began playing the cello at age 9, later obtaining an M.A. in Music at Mills College, Berkeley. Her orchestral career included the Victoria Symphony in the 1950's (principal cello), Toronto Symphony 1961-70 (assistant principal cello), and Orchestra London 1970-79 (principal cello) while husband Clifford EVENS was music director. She was also on the faculty of University of Western Ontario. In the 1980's she played with the National Ballet of Canada Orchestra and Canadian Opera Company Orchestra In addition, she enjoyed playing in numerous chamber music groups throughout her long career. She earned the love and respect of colleagues wherever she played. Her passion for music was matched by her passion for life - she lived it to the fullest. Always positive and younger than her years, she was open to new adventures, whether they be travelling the world, horse backpacking, or trying water-skiing in her 70's.
Uncomplaining, she faced the challenges of her life with courage, strength, determination and humour. Her extensive far-flung family was vitally important to her. In turn, her warmth and selflessness endeared her to family and Friends, who often sought her wise advice. Her influence on succeeding generations is profound. Special thanks to the staff at Glenwarren, caretakers and Doctor Luckhurst for their devoted care. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Collegium Program at Victoria Conservatory of Music, 900 Johnson Street, Victoria, British Columbia V8V 3N4 or National Youth Orchestra of Canada, 258 Adelaide St. #400, Toronto, Ontario M5A 1N1

Tara PARTON, 15, remembered as fighter
Became a spokesperson for Cystic Fibrosis cause
By John EDWARDS, Page 16
Tara PARTON lived more than 5,734 days, and lived every one to. the fullest
said an uncle this week as the family prepared for her funeral Tuesday.
PARTON, who underwent a double-lung transplant in April 2005, passed away last Friday morning at her Collingwood home with her parents Doug and Shannon by her side. She was 15.
Tara was described by her uncle, Jeff PARTON, as a courageous individual, a fighter, who never let her health get her down.
Diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when she was three-months-old, he said she always lived life to the fullest. He said the way she accepted her mortality really impressed him.
"Her reality of the situation - she knew death was imminent and she never wanted to go ahead and wallow in self pity" he said.
Jeff said his niece was artistic and an animal lover.
Sarah LAGEER has called Tara a friend since Grade 3 but started spending a lot more time with her over the last three years.
"I would go see her every day after school," she said.
LAGEER said Tara was a loyal friend and a good listener.
"If I wasn't having a really good day, she would listen to me and offer advice and it was usually pretty good advice LAGEER recalls.
She said some of her favourite times were swimming at the Young Men's Christian Association or just talking.
"We would have sleepovers and stay up until 2 a.m. just talking and watching movies," she said.
"She didn't really want (her condition) to take time away that she could spend with her Friends," LAGEER said "She lived life to the fullest"
Her uncle said the disease took hold over her in the last five months and over the last several weeks she became ill.
"She struggled forward," he said. In an April 2006 Interview Tara described herself as the survivor in a trio of young Cystic Fibrosis patients who became closely bonded during their hospital stays.
Her "long, hard wait" ended after 18 months on the transplant list with her lungs down to just 20 per cent capacity.
"We made a pact, the last one here would live to become an old lady," she recounted then. Her two Friends did not survive.
"I guess that is up to me now and I will do my best," she said.
"I do not know how long I will live, but I am grateful for my second chance at life."
Tara became an advocate for Cystic Fibrosis and organ donations.
She is survived by her mother Shannon, father Doug, brother Cody and sister Ashley, grandmother Shirley PARTON, grandparents Mel and Eleanor MATHER and nephew Logan. She was predeceased by her brother Ryan.

15-year-old loses battle with Cystic Fibrosis
By John EDWARDS, Page 3
Tara PARTON lived 5,475 days, and lived every one to the fullest said an uncle this week as the family prepared for her funeral Tuesday.
PARTON, who underwent a double-lung transplant in April 2005, died Friday morning at her Collingwood home with her parents Doug and Shannon by her side after a long battle with Cystic Fibrosis. She was 15.
Tara was described by her uncle, Jeff PARTON, as a courageous individual, a fighter, who never let her health get her down.

"Her reality of the situation - she knew death was imminent and she never wanted to go ahead and wallow in self pity," he said.
Jeff said his niece was an animal lover. He said she had several pets including a number of cats and a dog.
"She was always interested in dolphins," he said. "She always wanted to swim with the dolphins."
Tara was a student at Collingwood Collegiate Institute and Jeff called her "artistic."
He said her condition took hold over her in the last five months and over the last several weeks she became ill.
"She struggled forward," he said.
In an April 2006 interview Tara described herself as the survivor in a trio of young Cystic Fibrosis patients who became closely bonded during their hospital stays.

"I guess that is up to me now and I will do my best," she said.
"I do not know how long I will live, but I am grateful for my second chance at life."
At 15, Tara was a long way from being an old lady when she died last week.
Tara became a advocate for Cystic Fibrosis in 2006, speaking at fundraiser at Blue Mountain Resort and at the 65 Roses Gala in Toronto.
"It's about Cystic Fibrosis and my life to get awareness out there about Cystic Fibrosis so other children will not have to go through what me and my Friends went through."
Tara advocated organ donations, and in telling the story of her transplant, urged people to sign an organ donor card.
Friends have set up a group on Facebook, R.I.P. Tara PARTON, where they can leave condolences.
She is survived by her mother Shannon, father Doug, sisters Cody and Ashley, grandmother Shirley PARTON, grandparents Mel and Eleanor MATHER and nephew Logan.
She is predeceased by her brother Ryan.
