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

NELSON, Ronald Sr.
It is with great sadness that the family of Ronald NELSON Sr., announce his passing on March 7, 2008 at Thunder Bay Interim Long Term Care, with his family by his side. Ron was born on April 27, 1923 in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. As a young man, he settled in Oshawa and spent his entire working life of 44 years at General Motors of Canada. During the war years he served in the Army as a motorized vehicle driver trainer at Camp Borden. Ron and his wife Jean moved to Thunder Bay in 1998 to be closer to family. Ron and Jean enjoyed their many trips travelling and had particularly special memories of their 17 winters spent in Florida. An outstanding athlete, he enjoyed a remarkable hockey career playing junior hockey for the Oshawa Generals (two Memorial Cup Finals); senior hockey for the Quebec Aces, Sidney Millionaires, Glace Bay Miners, Peoples Credit Jewellers (Toronto Hockey League), Smith Truckmen (Wren Blair's first hockey team) and Orillia Pontiacs (league Most Valuable Player). Ron was also an exceptional fastball player. As the catcher for Oshawa Tony's Senior A team he participated in two world tournaments and was inducted into the Oshawa Sports Hall of Fame as a member of the Oshawa 'Colts' Intermediate 'A' fastball team. He also managed to maintain a 185 average for his ten pin bowling team. Later he developed a passion for golf. He enjoyed spending time with his Friends at the Meadowbrook Golf Club near Toronto and more recently at the Fort William County Club in Thunder Bay. Ron was predeceased by his wife Jean and his first wife Gwen, parents Anders and Karoline (Alfred LUNDGREN,) brothers Norman, Hans, sisters Margit, Oselio, niece Doris and nephew Stanley. Ron is survived by his sons Ronald Jr. (Colleen), Dean (Joanne), grandchildren Andrew (Sandra), Kathryn SHEWFELT (John), Trishia CONNORS (Peter) and Tashia DURNIN (Jason), great-grandchildren Bradley, Kaden, Carson and Grace and nieces Ruth, Norma, Betty, Elsie and Annelies and nephew Earl. He will be greatly missed by many other special people in the Oshawa/Toronto area (Gary and Ellie) and here in Thunder Bay, notably Sally (Glen) Hamilton and Brenda Nelson. Everyone who knew Ron commented on the fact that he was always a real gentleman, which is a simple statement that expresses how he lived his life. The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to the staff at Thunder Bay Interim Long Term Care for their care and compassion. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre Foundation or a charity of your choice. A memorial service for Ron will be held this spring when family are able to attend. An announcement will be published when the date is established. On line condolences at: www.jenkens-funeral.ca
