ATKIN, John Hamilton " Jack"
Born August 12, 1928 in Leamington, Ontario; died peacefully on May 19, 2008 in his 80th year, exactly 10 days after accepting the news of the extent of his cancer with courage and dignity - the same realistic way he dealt with every other challenge he faced throughout his life, particularly during his last few years with limited mobility and multiple health issues (to quote him, this was just another 'curve ball'). He was surrounded during his last days by love, family, Friends, music, and of course, Flowers. Needless to say, he was telling jokes right up to his last hours of consciousness. He was much loved and will be missed by his children Greg and Carolyn ATKIN, Jay and Mary Maureen ATKIN, Virginia ATKIN and Keith AMBACHTSHEER, and Jacqui ATKIN and Laurie FRASER; his grandchildren Melissa ATKIN and Mike RYAN, Sean and Lori ATKIN and Peter AMBACHTSHEER. He was also very close to and will be missed by his sisters Jane JOHNSON, Bette SHARPE and Ruth STOREY. There are also numerous nieces and nephews who lovingly remember their Uncle Jack, cousins, a multitude of Friends, and a brother Bill. Predeceased by his parents Edward and Edith (JACKSON) ATKIN, his step-mother Agatha (WILSON) ATKIN his brother Don ATKIN, his brothers-in-law, far too many Friends, and his soulmate, Mary (ROBERTSON) BLAIR, with whom he is now reunited. Always a visionary, Jack was a pioneer in the growing, mass marketing and distribution of flowers throughout his career. He was one of the first flower producers to introduce the sale of potted plants and cut flowers to major food chains and department stores. In carrying on the family business that his father started (Atkin's Flowers, then Yoder-Atkin), he advanced the year-round propagation and sale of chrysanthemum cuttings to North American markets, and was a great believer in plant breeders' rights. His innovation for packaging and distribution led the way for the success that exists in today's flower industry. He also started the direct sales business at Ontario Flower Growers. Known as 'Action Jackson', he was also an avid volunteer in numerous organizations - he was one of the founders of the Cecil Delworth Foundation and the Canadian Ornamental Plant Foundation, a strong supporter of Flowers Canada and The Canadian Horticulture Council, and served on the Board of the Royal Winter Fair when they introduced the flower show into the annual program. Jack has always been recognized by the flower industry of North America and has been given many awards for his contributions over the years. He was also involved in building the Leamington District Memorial Hospital in the 1950s. His interests included having the best garden in town, curling, Kinsmen, tennis, barbershop singing, playing cards, scotch, dancing (even in his wheelchair) and more recently being a Claremont Calendar guy! Jack was always proud of the lifelong Friendships he made along the way with so many people, including his colleagues, most of his clients, and his competitors. His life was about 'caring and sharing'. He will be remembered by his 'power of positive thinking' approach to life, his loyalty and Friendship, the flowers he always had for everyone, and his lifelong ambition to make people smile. Jack's family is very grateful to Lynn WEBSTER, Natalie COPPOLINO and the entire Staff of The Claremont Retirement Residence for making the last few years of his life so happy (and the Residents, too); to Doctor Mary GOSPODAROWICZ of The Princess Margaret Hospital, and Dianne WILLIAMS and all of the very special Palliative Care Nurses at Saint Michael's Hospital for their care and compassion in easing the pain for Dad, and helping his family through this last part of his journey Dr. Gary MAY and the Gastro-Intestinal Team at Saint Michael's Hospital as well as Doctor Carmen MUELLER and Doctor Catherine WONG. Arrangements handled by The Simple Alternative Funeral Centre, North York. A Celebration of Life will be held at The Old Mill, 21 Old Mill Road, Toronto on Tuesday, June 17 at 3: 00 p.m. While there will definitely be flowers, we ask that those interested in making a donation to remember Jack do so either to The Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation, 610 University Avenue, Toronto, Ontario M5G 2M9 (1.866.224.6560 or www.pmhf.ca) or to The Jack Atkin Memorial Fund at the Ontario Agricultural College, University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario N1G 2W1 (payable to the University of Guelph). We are setting up a 'Jack Atkin Memories' website - you can email jacqui.atkin@sympatico.ca to send us your stories and photos, and to be added to get on our website announcement mailing list. We will all miss Jack's warmth, love of life, and jokes! It Was A Great Ride!

WONG, Frederick (March 6, 1942-June 14, 2008)
With sadness and sorrow, we announce that Frederick WONG passed away peacefully with family members at his side on Saturday, June 14, 2008 at the Ottawa General Hospital from cancer.

In his brief and brave struggle with his illness, Fred was touched by the messages of love, affection, support and hope from his large and diverse circles of Friends. The family is very grateful for the invaluable advice provided by cousins Doctor Herbert WONG and Doctor Henry WONG of Vancouver.
Fred was a charter student and received a B.A. in Economics from Simon Fraser University where he also did graduate studies. Upon graduation he joined the federal public service in Ottawa as a professional economist where he worked for over 35 years principally at Statistics Canada and then recently at Natural Resources Canada until his retirement in 2006.
For 14 consecutive years, Fred devoted enormous energy and time to host an annual summer barbeque in support of The Ottawa Food Bank. The event is recognized as one of the major individual initiatives to support a community charity. The Ottawa Tennis and Lawn Bowling Club of which Fred was a tennis member for over 25 years was at the centre of his rich social life.
On Friday, June 20th at 7: 00 p.m. a Memorial Service will be held at the Chapel of McEvoy-Shields Funeral Home and Chapel at 1411 Hunt Club Road (at Albion Road), Ottawa, Ontario.
