SNOOK, William Samuel (1922-2008)
William S. SNOOK passed away peacefully on Thursday, January 3, 2008, in Savannah, Georgia, after a short illness at the age of 85. He was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 1922 to Joseph and Eleanor (HUTCHINSON/HUTCHISON) SNOOK, and spent his formative years in Halifax and the Musquodoboit Valley. He is survived by his loving wife of 56 years, Juene (MARSHALL) SNOOK; son and daughter-in-law, Kevin and Amy (BASCO) SNOOK of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario daughter, Suzanne M. JENSEN of Copetown, Ontario; and four adoring grandchildren, Kirsten and Taylor JENSEN, and Jonathon and Emily SNOOK. He was pre-deceased by a daughter, Nancy Anne. He is well-remembered by an extended network of family in Nova Scotia and the rest of Canada and by Friends across North America, the Caribbean and the world. Bill and Juene made their home on a scenic golf course at the Landings on Skidaway Island for the past 20 years after a nomadic, but faithful 43-year business career with the Royal Bank of Canada took them from Halifax, Nova Scotia, to Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver in Canada, as well as to Trinidad and New York City. Starting from a humble position as a branch clerk in Nova Scotia, Bill, in succession, managed the Bank's main branch in Montreal, its Caribbean branch network, all of its South American and Caribbean operations, and a significant portion of the Bank's business in Ontario. He retired in 1983 as a Senior Vice President responsible for Royal Bank of Canada's operations in the United States to consult to various companies, travel extensively with Juene, manage his investments, and sharpen his golf game. Bill also served in the Canadian Air Force as a Flying Officer in the Second World War and was a member of the Masonic Lodge - Montreal Chapter. A simple memorial service was held on Monday, January 7, 2008 at Fox and Weeks Hodgson Chapel in Savannah. The family will establish a website at www.billsnook.com in the next few days and welcomes visits and personal comments and stories. The family requests that remembrances be made to the Landings Library and the American and Canadian Cancer Societies in lieu of flowers.

GIBSON, Blair Bruce, B.Comm., C.A. (1921-2008)
(Royal Canadian Air Force, Royal Air Force)
Passed away peacefully April 5 in his 87th year. Blair leaves his beloved wife of 64 years, Joyce, daughter Sandra, son Robert (Christine) and grandchildren Megan, Lauran, Michelle and Meaghan. Blair was born in Parry Sound, Ontario, the son of the late William GIBSON and Laura SNOW. He grew up in Capreol, Ontario and was the recipient of the McCrae Gold Medal for academic excellence at Capreol High School. In 1942 Blair joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in the newly created Radar unit. When told that he would not be posted overseas, he met, fell in love with and married Joyce WELSH in 1943 in Montreal. Scant months later, seconded to the Royal Air Force, he found himself in the middle of the war in Europe. Postings followed in London, during the V1 and V2 rocket attacks, Scotland, Holland, France (on top of Mont Ventoux) and Germany. Upon his return to Canada, he and Joyce lived in Montreal where Blair completed a B.Comm. at McGill University and shortly thereafter his C.A. He joined the firm of Creek Cushing and Hodgson and quickly became partner. In 1965 Creek Cushing and Hodgson merged with Price Waterhouse and Blair became the partner specializing in mergers and acquisitions. Professionally, this was the golden era of Blair's life. In 1982, Blair retired from active practice, although he continued to be called upon by ex-clients and ex-partners for his expertise. In 1986 he and Joyce bought a house in Eagle Lake (Haliburton) which was the base for his grandchildren to learn to swim (even on May 24 weekend) and fish. Michelle still remembers trying to catch 'that little devil'. In 1994 Blair and Joyce moved down to Toronto to an easier-to-maintain condo. Travel was always a very important part of Blair's life with his family. Whether it was Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire in the 1960's, Spain in the 1970's, or Hawaii and Florida in the 1980's and 1990's, Blair and Joyce always loved having family travel with them. Sandra and Robert saw much of the world with their parents and that wanderlust is now ingrained in them and their own children. The last year was particularly difficult for Blair and his family. The onset of dementia and immobility due to a broken hip forced Blair to seek Assisted Living and he found it difficult to be away from his wife. Blair's only regret is that he did not leave this world in his preferred manner to be shot at 104 by a jealous husband. Many thanks to the caregivers at Sunrise of Unionville. Friends may call at the R.S. Kane Funeral Home (6150 Yonge Street, at Goulding, south of Steeles), on Wednesday, April 9th from 2: 00 p.m. until time of Memorial Service at 3:00 p.m. Cremation. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Alzheimer Society and please make a point to thank a Veteran. Condolences www.rskane.ca R.S. Kane 416-221-1159

'She was just a bright star full of life'
By Jenni DUNNING, Wed., June 25, 2008
Shelby GOLDIE couldn't stay there for long.
She surveyed the accident scene -- broken CDs and strewn belongings that had flown out of the car her friend Christie ROSE drove before it went out of control, flipped and smashed into a tree. She died later of her injuries.
GOLDIE was one of 10 people to congregate at the site on Fingal Line between Centre and Oneida roads Monday night, looking for answers to Saturday's crash.
"No one really knows what happened. We tried to observe and put the pieces of the puzzle together," she said. "We got an eerie feeling and had to leave."
ROSE, 18, of Fingal, was a popular student at Parkside Collegiate Institute in Saint Thomas and a forward for the London Devilettes intermediate AA hockey team.
She'll be remembered as a strong-willed, funny person, Friends said.
"Through it all, everyone was like, 'She's a fighter. She's so strong,'" said friend and teammate Brittany PATON, 21.
PATON said she would need a dictionary to describe how wonderful her friend was. "She was the kind of person you met and wanted to be Friends with right away. She made you feel good about yourself."
PATON said ROSE loved working out and doing impressions of actors in her favourite movies, such as She's the Manitoba
In their last conversation, she said, ROSE talked about how happy she was and about plans for after graduation.
She said she's in shock her friend is gone. "You don't want to believe it. It's kind of an emotional roller coaster."
ROSE's school and community are reeling from the crash. About 200 people visited Parkside for a memorial yesterday to share memories and photographs.
"She was just a bright star full of life and will be missed by anyone who was blessed to have known her," said principal Paul McKENZIE.
"I'm sure it's every parent's worst nightmare. It's every principal's, as well."
ROSE is survived by her parents, Melanie Ann (SNOWSELL) and Dan, brother Joseph and sister Lauren.
Visitation is at Parkside on Friday from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. A funeral is at the school Saturday at 11: 30 a.m.
