GILRAY, John Stuart Alexander, D.V.M., V.S.
The family of horse lover and equine veterinarian Doctor John GILRAY is profoundly sad to announce that their husband/father/grandfather has succumbed to cancer at the age of 78. John died peacefully in his sleep on June 5, 2008. He was the beloved partner of Connie SANDERS, much-loved father of Stuart (Linda) GILRAY, Barbara (Tom) WIEBE, Ann GILRAY and Janet GILRAY (Rick LETESTU,) and much-loved brother of Barbara WILLIAMS. " Grampa John" will also be greatly missed by Vanessa, Paige and Jillian WIEBE, Dallas GILRAY and Mitchell POTTS.
Passionate about horses from age 13, John always considered himself lucky that his vocation was also his avocation. He graduated in 1954 from the Ontario Veterinary College and practiced equine medicine first in Ontario and then in British Columbia from 1959 to 2007. His accomplishments and contributions to the equine world were many and varied. In 2004, he was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award from Horse Council British Columbia for outstanding service to the horse industry of British Columbia, and that same year the Royal Horse Show in Toronto made him an Honorary Veterinarian in recognition of 50 years of volunteer service.
During his career, John was an Equine Canada judge and steward an FEI veterinarian; chairman of Zone 5 of the Canadian Horse Shows Association and a national vice president of its successor, the Canadian Equestrian Federation; founder of the Northwest International Horse show, which under his 15-year chairmanship was the premier all-breed indoor show in western Canada; founder and first master of the Fraser Valley Hunt; Visiting Commissioner of the Canadian Pony Club and co-founder of three British Columbia Pony Club branches. As an equine practitioner, "Dr. John" was universally respected for his professionalism, knowledge and integrity. As a friend, he will be remembered for his compassion, sociability and sense of humour. He will be missed by all those whose lives he touched.
A celebration of John's life will be held on Tuesday, June 24 at Victory Memorial Gardens, Surrey, British Columbia. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society or a charity of your choice.

LEWIS, Linda Diane (née HAGGANS)
Suddenly, as a result of a household fall with complications, on January 14, 2008 at age 67. Dearly beloved wife of Douglas Grinslade LEWIS of Orillia.

Sister-in-law of Diane (Herb) LETSCHE, Claire (David) VAN LOON, and Elaine (Meldon) SCHNIEDER/SNIDER/SNYDER. Loving aunt to many nieces and nephews. Linda was the rock of the LEWIS family and we will all miss her. She supported and raised the family and then watched over us as she went about her remarkable careers. As well as acting as wife and mother she made a contribution in two careers, as a public health nurse and a lawyer. Once she had raised the family she entered law school at age 51 and was called to the bar in 1994. She was probably the most active legal aid lawyer in Orillia or Simcoe County as she had the ability to empathize with her clients as a result of her public health career. Her client's cause became her cause. At the same time she continued to volunteer in such varied fields as Quota, the Murf Committee, Orillia Association for Community Living and the Soldiers' Memorial Hospital Board of Directors. Her husband Doug revered her as his wife, best friend, interested critic and always best supporter. She will be missed by all she touched. The late Linda Diane LEWIS will rest at the Mundell Funeral Home, 79 West Street North, Orillia, with visitations on Wednesday 7 to 9 p.m., Thursday 2 to 4 pm.. and 7 to 9 p.m. Then to Saint Paul's United Church, 62 Peter Street North, Orillia, for a funeral service at 2: 00 p.m. on Friday, January 18th, 2008. Private Interment at St. Andrew's - Saint_James' Cemetery, Orillia. If desired, memorial donations to Soldiers' Memorial Hospital Foundation would be gratefully appreciated.

KEHOE, Michael Patrick
It is with great sadness the family of Michael Patrick KEHOE announces his passing, Thursday May 15, 2008 at the Red Lake Hospital after a brief illness (brain tumour). Michael was born and raised in Chatham, Ontario. At the young age of 19 he joined the Ontario Provincial Police and was first posted to Petrolia, Ontario In January 1974. Several years after arriving in Petrolia Mike met Kimberly TROMBLEY and they were married in Sarnia in October of 1978. Soon after (1981) Mike and Kim transferred to Northern Ontario (Ear Falls) where he spent most of his career, retiring from the Red Lake Detachment in January 2004. Mike was his happiest tromping through the bush whether he was hunting, fishing, trapping prospecting, or looking for some obscure lake he had seen on a map. He was a devout family man, helping to raise his two children Matthew (1985) and Gina (1987) both born in Red Lake, Ontario. Michael put the needs of his children and family before anything else, and was quite content to sit with a child on each knee watching cartoons. Michael leaves to mourn his passing his wife and best friend Kimberly, his two children, Matthew (Janelle) and Gina (Brian) his brothers and sisters Patrick KEHOE (Anne), Katherine LETWIN (William), Tim KEHOE (Kim) Joanne WEST (John) Mother-in-law Mary TROMBLEY, Sister-in-law Carol BUSS (Pat), brother-in-laws Michael TROMBLEY (Gail), Rod TROMBLEY (Stacey) and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his father Harry KEHOE in August 1986, his mother Anne in January 2008 and his father-in-law Ernie TROMBLEY in April 1994. Michael will be sadly missed by his many Friends in the Ontario Provincial Police and all his Friends at the 'Round Table' from the Howey Bay where he met daily for an early morning coffee or two. A funeral service was held at the Royal Canadian Legion Wednesday May 21st with Reverend Doug GRIEG officiating. Interment followed at the Red Lake Cemetery. A visitation was held at the Red Lake Chapel on Tuesday, May 20th. Donations may be made in Michael's memory to the Red Lake Homeless Shelter, whose members lovingly referred to Michael as 'Robocop' through the Stevens Funeral Home, "Red Lake Chapel", P.O.
