EDWARDS, Jim
In loving memory of a dear husband and father, Jim, who passed away suddenly, January 28, 1996.
When ties of love are broken,
And loved ones have to part,
It leaves a wound that never heals
with sad and broken hearts.
But looking back on memories,
And upon the path we trod,
We bless the years we had with him
And do give thanks to God
- Lovingly remembered by wife, Laurel and children, Dennis, Jodie, Frankie and J.J.

STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, Frances Alma (née CARSON)
Frances Alma STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, beloved wife of the late Neil STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, passed away peacefully on January 24, 2008 at Extendicare Halton Hills, in her 99th year. Frances was born on December 6, 1909 to Walter and Minnie (MacLEOD) CARSON on the family homestead just outside of Dundalk on the Backline, Proton. On September 13, 1930 she was married to Neil Glenford STEWARD/STEWART/STUART of Shrigley.
Neil and Frances lived on the Stewart family farm from the time of their marriage until 1944, at which time they purchased the nearby farm of Robert BAILEY where they remained until 1969 when they moved to Dundalk in retirement. Neil and Frances worked side-by-side and were well respected farmers in the area.
During that period, Frances and Neil were active participants in the Agricultural Society in Dundalk and together they received an award that acknowledged their contribution. In 2000 Frances received a 30 year certificate for her volunteer service in the community.
Frances was also an active member of the Maple Valley Women's Missionary Society and in 1969 she received a life time achievement certificate and pin. Members of the Women's Missionary Society remained in contact with Frances throughout the remainder of her life.
Frances loved Dundalk and was a well-known and well-loved contributor to the people of the town. Her delicious cooking and her generous nature made it common place for those who were unwell to receive a full chicken dinner for the family or her very delicious date squares or pie.
Frances and Neil had celebrated their sixty-sixth wedding anniversary just prior to Neil's passing, December 31, 1996.
Frances is survived by grand_son, Donald BERRY of Edmonton and Linda BERRY of Georgetown, by great-grandchildren, Dawn and Andrew of Edmonton and by Melissa, Rhonda, Janice and Nadine, all of Alberta, and by a number of great-great-grandchildren also living in Alberta. Frances was predeceased by daughter, Helen DELORES in 1987 and by grand_son, Neil BERRY and brothers Ivan and William CARSON and sisters-in-law Edna and Mary CARSON.
In May 2003 after a period of ill health, Frances moved to Extendicare in Georgetown, where she became a much loved resident and she received constant care and loving attention of nursing/care-giving staff. Upon arrival she was reconnected with her childhood nickname of 'Frankie'. Staff spoke often of her great character and nature and of her desire to continue to do things for herself, which she continued to do until the final week of her life. While Frances moved to Extendicare almost five years ago, her heart remained solidly in Dundalk and she always enjoyed her calls and visits from family and Friends who offered some 'news' of her beloved town.
The funeral was held on January 29, 2008 at the McMillan and Jack Funeral Home, Dundalk. Long-time friend, Rev. Willis HUNKING was the officiating minister and was capability assisted by his brother, Clarence's granddaughter, Denise; who also beautifully sang three favorite hymns. Acting pallbearers were Jack, Bill and Brad CARSON, Rick MARCH, Joe CLEARY and Donald BELL. Honorary pallbearers included Therese Haverty CLEARY, June and Lesley CARSON, Leaman HUNKING, Cathy MARCH, and Mary EDWARDS, and the Flowerbearer was Calvin LYLE- ASHBY.
Spring internment will be in Badjeros Cemetery.

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.

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.

Fire claims life of local woman
By John EDWARDS, Page 3
The death of a woman in a townhouse fire in Collingwood on Saturday has rocked the entire neighbourhood, according to one resident.
Fire crews were called to a town house complex on Matthew Way at about 10 p.m., on Saturday.
According to Collingwood Fire Chief Trent ELYEA, the fire started in the kitchen while a man and a woman were in the home. He said they were not responsive when crews arrived and could have been asleep. The fire has been ruled as "accidental in nature," and started in the stove area.
"It was not a malfunction," said fire prevention officer Robert BOLT.
BOLT pegged the damage at about $125,000.
The woman was taken to Collingwood General and Marine Hospital where she was pronounced dead.
The man was airlifted to Hospital in Hamilton where he was put in a hyperbaric chamber, according to ELYEA, to bring his carbon monoxide levels down before he could be treated for his injuries - burns and smoke inhalation.
There were also two dogs and a cat in the home at the time. One of the cats died in the fire, the second lived and paramedics attempted to revive the dog but it was then taken to a local veterinarian. ELYEA was not aware of the condition of the dog.
Neighbours who lived next door confirmed that Ken and Sharon McDOUGALL lived in unit 306 at the Matthew Way complex, although Collingwood Ontario Provincial Police have not released the name of the victim as they are still attempting to notify the next of kin.
Julie, who asked that The Connection not publish her last name, said the couple kept to themselves, adding Mrs. McDOUGALL had an illness that kept her in bed a lot oft he time.
"They were very nice people," she said.
Julie said she wasn't aware that a fire was happening until her neighbour told her.
"Because there was no flames," she said.
She said it has had a big impact on the area.
"It's sad, it's a tragedy," she said. Another neighbour Drew who also didn't want his last name published, said everyone in the complex is feeling a sense of loss.
"Everybody is going to have a day of mourning," he said.
Julie said her kids have taken the incident very hard. Her nine-year-old daughter set up a memorial outside the home with a cross and flowers.
"She is very emotional," she said. Julie said some neighbours have been having nightmares over the incident and others had to leave their homes for the night because they were so upset.
"It's something that you always fear can happen, but you never hope it happens," she said.
ELYEA said the smoke alarms were working but the alarms tended to go off quite regularly and neighbours assumed it was another false alarm.
"That is accurate," he said. "There was a complacency issue."
A crew of three firefighters arrived on the scene first and was able to get both occupants outside so paramedics could treat them.
"They did an excellent knockdown and excellent recovery," ELYEA said of his crew.

Tara PARTON was a fighter
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.
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 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.
Her "long, hard wait" ended after 18 months on the transplant list with just 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."
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."

He is also survived by a number of beloved nieces and nephews.
Hugh was born May 3, 1919 in Peterborough and graduated from Queen's University in 1942 with a Master's Degree in History and an officer's appointment out of the Canadian Officer Training Corps. As a Lieutenant with the Hastings and Prince Edward Regiment, Hugh saw action with the Canadian First Infantry Division, Allied Eighth Army in Italy. He was captured in the fierce fighting south of Ortona in December 1943, and was held as a Prisoner of War at OFLAG VIIIF (Mährisch-Trübau, Czech Republic) and OFLAG 79 (Brunswick, Germany) until 1945. After the War, Hugh served in the Canadian Reserve Militia through the mid-'50, in which he attained the rank of Major.
An active and successful career in public education with the Toronto and Metro School Boards following graduation from Ontario College of Education in 1946, included: teaching at Harbord Collegiate Institute (46-58); head of History at North Toronto Collegiate Institute (58-61); Vice Principal at Parkdale Collegiate (61-63) founding Principal at Monarch Park Secondary School (63-66) Academic Director of Study in Educational Facilities; 66-69.

Hugh completed his career by serving as Superintendant and Assistant Director of Education for the Metropolitan Toronto School Board from 1970 until his retirement in February, 1977.
Leading up to his retirement, Hugh received recognition and awards for his longstanding contribution to education in Ontario. Hugh was active with the East Toronto Rotary Club through the 60's and 70's. Through active enquiry and contributions, Hugh has played a role in the betterment of several communities including Lake of Bays, Ontario where the extended families enjoyed many wonderful summers together. In retirement, Hugh and Marj also spent winters in Ocala, Fort Myers and Clearwater, Florida. Hugh was an active contributor to Islington United Church through the 50's and 60's and to many worthy charities and causes.
Hugh was a compassionate, private person, a voracious reader until late in life, and an inquisitive student of the rushing events of our times. He was a gentleman, a man of integrity, and a generous, trusted advisor and friend to those close to him.
A celebration of Hugh's life will be held at the York Visitation, Chapel and Reception Centre, 160 Beecroft Road (north of Sheppard Avenue, first street west of Yonge Street), Toronto, 416-221-3404 on Saturday, January 5, 2007 at 11: 00 a.m. Visitation one hour prior with a lunch reception to follow the service.

A particularly effective teacher and administrator, Bill was pleased with his many students, 49 of whose theses he supervised, several of whom completed their own books and articles.

Ambassador a hard-nosed negotiator who paved the way to free trade
A survivor of a torpedoed Royal Canadian Navy frigate during the Second World War, he learned how to exploit differences among trading regions and proved that Canada was capable of digging in its heels
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S12
Jake WARREN was part of that generation of tough Canadians who saw action during the Second World War and went on to become architects of this country's post-war political and economic policies. Alongside such senior mandarins (and old Friends) as Simon Reisman, Gordon Robertson, Ed Ritchie and Saul Rae, Mr. WARREN represented a golden era when Canada came of age and made its mark internationally.
A highly respected diplomat and public servant for 34 years, Mr. WARREN was Canada's high commissioner to Britain and ambassador to the United States. Before and after those appointments, he was this country's top trade negotiator, a hard-nosed horse trader who co-ordinated tariff and trade deals on a global scale, paving the way for the 1988 Canada-U.S. Free Trade Agreement.
"In my family, we knew him as Uncle Jake," recalled Liberal member of Parliament and former Ontario premier Bob Rae, whose father, Saul, served with Mr. WARREN in post-war London. "He was somebody I always turned to for candid and direct advice. He was never shy about sharing his views."
Mr. WARREN had "a burning love" for Canada, eulogized his friend Thomas D'AQUINO, a former civil servant and now head of the Canadian Council of Chief Executives. He "took a strong interest in virtually every issue that came to define Canada as we passed into the new century: Our trading relationships with the world; our fiscal health; our constitutional debates; relations between English and French speaking people; our partnership with the United States the integrity and accountability of our political leaders."
Like many of his era, Mr. WARREN was fuelled by an intellectual hunger and zest for life that followed the trauma of having his warship blown out from under him. He joined the Royal Canadian Navy in 1941 and by 1944, was a lieutenant and navigation officer aboard the HMCS Valleyfield, a river-class frigate that had been commissioned only the year before.
Just before midnight on May 6, 1944, on the return leg of an escort mission, the Valleyfield was one of three frigates and two corvettes steaming 50 nautical miles south of Cape Race, Newfoundland. With the Valleyfield occupying the distant, astern position in the convoy, the ships were making good time to Saint_John's, when suddenly, a warning was sounded. Just as action stations were called, the German submarine U-548 fired a torpedo that ripped into the Valleyfield's port side. There was a tremendous explosion and the ship broke in two.
"She went down in 90 seconds," recalled Stanley TAPSON of Sidney, British Columbia, who was a stoker aboard the ship. "Jake was off duty that night but he was in the bridge cabin anyway."
The water temperature was barely above freezing. Of a crew of 168, 130 men perished. Because it happened late at night, most were asleep or off watch in the mess. The ship was cut neatly in half and they died trapped below decks, Mr. TAPSON said.
Asked how he survived clad in nothing but a lifejacket and underwear, Mr. TAPSON said, "I was 19." Mr. WARREN, he recalled, wore a thermal suit.
Of the crew who hit the water, only 38 survived. But for them the nightmare was just beginning. It was some time before the other ships in the convoy realized that the Valleyfield was missing. Finally, HMCS Giffard, a flower-class corvette, went about and steamed back to the survivors but could not stop. Under wartime regulations, the Giffard had orders to first try to hunt down the submarine.
Hours later, with all trace of the U-boat gone, the Giffard returned to the scene. But by then some of the men had perished in the water, either from hypothermia or from ingesting fuel oil that had sluiced from the hull. The survivors were finally taken on board and, once safely in port, they waited their turn to ride an ambulance to hospital.
"Jake comes up to me and puts his hand on my shoulder and says, 'You're next, Stan,' recalled Mr. TAPSON, his voice choking. "That's was typical. He was no put-on. He was a man's man and we all loved and respected him."
He was born on Happy Valley Farm, which grew tobacco in Howard Township outside London, Ontario, the only child of Thomas and Olive WARREN. At war's end, he returned to Queen's University to complete a bachelor's degree in politics and economics that he had started earlier.
Mr. WARREN and many his age were snapped up by a war-weary External Affairs Department, which was eager for fresh talent. For a dozen years, he held junior postings at Canadian embassies in London, Washington and Paris, and showed such a flair for trade issues that in 1958 he was appointed assistant deputy minister in the department of trade and commerce.
Two years later, he was named vice-chairman of the Canadian delegation at the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade in Geneva, a posting that lasted four years. Then it was back to the renamed industry, trade and commerce ministry in Ottawa, this time as deputy minister.
At the age of 50, Mr. WARREN was named high commissioner. "He was one the youngest high commissioners ever sent," said his daughter, Hilary NICOLSON. "He relished it and did a phenomenal job of promoting Canada as a young and youthful country, full of prospects."
The three-year posting was replaced by another high-level appointment as Canada's ambassador to the United States, overlapping with the presidencies of Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter. It was under Mr. Ford's administration that Canada was invited to join the G-6 Group of Nations, making it the G-7. Mr. WARREN was said to have played a large role in that decision, and he also laid plans for the later move of Canada's embassy to Pennsylvania Avenue, just down the street from the White House.
When Mr. Ford died in 2006, Mr. WARREN recalled that the president "understood us, and there didn't seem to be huge, terrible tensions or problems. We didn't have a lumber dispute, and we didn't have water diversion."
Another accomplishment of note on his watch was an agreement reached between the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the National Research Council of Canada for the development and building of a "Space Shuttle Attached Remote Manipulator System," or the Canadarm.
In 1977, rumours surfaced that Mr. WARREN was being pushed out of his job because of conflict with Ivan Head, a top adviser to then-prime minister Pierre Trudeau, over preparations for Mr. Trudeau's trip to Washington that February. Mr. WARREN was also rumoured to be on the short list for governor-general in 1979, but the job went to Edward Schreyer.
In 1977, he returned to Canada as co-ordinator of the Tokyo Round of the Multilateral Trade Negotiations, which were aimed at revamping the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade. To the amazement of many, Mr. WARREN showed that Canada, a relatively small player by international standards, was able to exact concessions from Europe, the U.S. and Japan.
In fact, the way he put it, Canadian officials learned how to exploit differences among the three most powerful trading regions. Mr. WARREN said Canada had proved quite capable of digging in its heels on import restrictions. "Not unreasonable" was a phrase he often used to describe the concessions achieved by Canada.
While it's fair to say many Canadians would find topics such as tariff quotas and countervailing duties less than scintillating, Mr. WARREN truly loved the field. "He actually found the subject fascinating," his daughter noted. "The negotiating skills required, the subject matter. Free trade was something that he believed strongly in. Dry maybe, but for him, the subtleties were extraordinary."
He was recalled as a wonderful wit but a rather formal man who would arch his back at the dinner table to remind his children to sit up straight. However, he mellowed with age, his daughter pointed out.
On retirement in 1979, he was appointed vice-chairman of the Bank of Montreal and made responsible for its growing international network. Three years later, he was named to the Order of Canada. But another major challenge awaited. A month shy of his 65th birthday, the government of Quebec retained him as its free-trade policy adviser during the North American Free Trade Agreement negotiations.
The Globe and Mail called his appointment "intriguing" and an ambiguous move by then premier Robert Bourassa, who "often sends out double messages of this kind, using someone's reputation to suggest that he is heading in one direction, and then moving in a quite different direction.
"On the face of it, it looks as if Quebec went out to get a big-league player; someone whose experience would match that of Simon Reisman," wrote Graham Fraser in 1986.
Mr. WARREN's presence suggested to others that Mr. Bourassa favoured the idea of the trade talks' success. And while there were some who said an independent Quebec's economy would be viable, Mr. WARREN's view was: "Viable means 'not dead.' That's not what I want for Quebec."
He wanted the best for all of Canada. As he warned before the House of Commons committee on the Meech Lake Accords, "If there is a split or some arrangement that is less efficient than what we have at the moment, I think we will lose something. Both Canada and Quebec will lose."
Jack Hamilton WARREN was born in Ridgetown, Ontario, on April 10, 1921. He died April 1, 2008 of natural causes in Ottawa. He was 87. He leaves his wife of 55 years Joan (TITTERINGTON,) children Hilary, Martin, Jennifer, and Ian, and nine grandchildren.
He is also survived by his Valleyfield shipmates, Stanley TAPSON (Sidney, British Columbia); Bill EDWARDS (Vancouver); Don GODWIN (Hamilton, Ontario;) and Ian TAIT/TAITE/TATE (Port Colbourne, Ontario

HOLMES, W. Wayne
It is with much sadness that the family of W. Wayne HOLMES announce his passing at the age of 84 years. Wayne was predeceased in 2001 by his beloved Thelma, wife of 56 years. Born in Saskatoon in 1923, Wayne joined the Royal Canadian Navy in 1942 and was one of 26 Canadians who served in the Royal Navy Submarine Service. Returning home in 1946, he re-joined the Bank of Montreal and for the next four decades, his career took him from Vancouver to Saint John's. Throughout his life, Wayne found many ways to involve himself in his local community, assisting with the 1988 Calgary Olympics, working with the Stoney First Nation peoples and, in more distant communities, through his work with the Canadian Executive Services Organization. Wayne had many passions from raising orchids to politics, but promoting an understanding of Canada's naval history was among the most important. He had the privilege of serving on the Board and as President of the Naval Museum of Alberta from 1997 until 2002. In both capacities, he took an active role in helping to establish the Museum as one of the best of its kind in Canada. Wayne will be remembered with great love and much affection by his many Friends and family, including his son Robert HOLMES of Vancouver, British Columbia two daughters and two sons-in-law; Karen and Peter SADLIER- BROWN of Toronto, Ontario; Shelley HOLMES and Roy ROBERTS of Vancouver, B.C.; two grandchildren, Joshua SADLIER- BROWN and Jordan ROBERTS and his sister Janet EDWARDS of Conesus, New York, U.S.A. If Friends so desire, memorial donations may be made to the Naval Museum of Alberta Society, 1820 - 24 Street S.W., Calgary, Alberta. T2T 0G6.

BILLES, Alfred Robert George
(November 21, 1959-June 1, 2008)
After collapsing suddenly at his cottage in Minden, Alfred died peacefully at the Southlake Health Centre in Newmarket with his wife and best friend by his side. Loving, passionate husband to Susan, devoted father to Eliza, Stephanie, A.J. and Nicole, cherished son of Barbara and the late Fred BILLES, responsible older brother to Heather, Deirdre (Chris), Maeve (Greg) and Garth. Best buddy to Layne MINGIE. Friend to many. Alfred believed life was a joyous adventure to be lived fully with love and laughter. He grew up in Toronto and spent a happy childhood in the Bayview Yorkmills neighbourhood playing with Friends and embarking on adventures in Wilket Creek. Alfred attended Crescent school from grade 2 to 12 where he formed some of his closest Friendships. He spent his last year of high school at the Canadian Junior College in Lausanne where he fell madly in love with Susan ELLIOT/ELLIOTT. Alfred and Susan married 2 years later. Alfred lived life fast and fully. While in his 20's he proudly became the father of four beautiful children. After graduating from the University of Waterloo, Alfred worked with his father at the Canadian Tire store at Yonge and Davenport for 7½ years. In the early 90's he ran the Hardie Corporation. For the past 13 years he and Susan have owned and operated the Once Upon a Child Store on Bayview, building it into one of the most successful stores in the chain. Alfred was a large, loud, gentle man, full of exuberance for life. He loved rock and roll, cars and boats, his dogs James and Dakota and diet coke with lime. He especially enjoyed playing backgammon and cards, (gin and hearts) and long, hard fought battles of Risk. Most of all, Alfred loved people. He never put off spending time with those he loved. He was a happy, positive person who saw good all around him. He considered himself a very lucky man and smiled and laughed almost every day of his life.

WILSON, John
Passed away in Ottawa on Wednesday June 25th, 2008 at the age of 88.
Although I was born on December 21, 1919, life for me really began when I met and married my late wife, the Honourable Bertha WILSON, and ended when she died on April 28th, 2007. Since that time life has been kind of a shadowland, punctuated with memories of a wonderful partnership, where we shared joys and sorrows, disappointments and triumphs. In the years of our earthly pilgrimage we have met and enjoyed the Friendship of some very fine people, and discovered unique acquaintances in surprisingly unexpected places. Our declining and final years were enlightened and sustained by the devotion of two loyal and exceptional caregivers: Beverly EDWARDS and Sherlyn PORTER. My funeral arrangements are private and after cremation my ashes will be deposited in Beechwood Cemetery.

EDWARDS, Clifford H.C., C.M., O.M., Q.C.
(November 8, 1924-July 5, 2008)
With great sadness we announce the passing of Clifford EDWARDS on July 5, 2008 at the Riverview Health Centre. Cliff is survived by Kathy, his beloved wife and best friend of 57 years, their children Jeanette (John), John (Linda), Michael (Catherine) and Marnie (Malcolm); grandchildren Steven, Gregory, Laura, Austin, Daniel, Luke, Devon (Ethan) and Garret; great-grandchildren Zackary and Elijah; sister-in-law, Margaret; cousins Robert (Eileen) COAD in Whitby, Ontario, Evelyn PECKHAM and her family on the Isle of Wight and Macclesfield, England, and Louise COAD in Ilfracombe, England. Cliff was predeceased by his infant son, Paul and by his parents. Cliff and his young family emigrated from England in 1958 and settled in Winnipeg, where he joined the Manitoba Law School. In 1964, he was appointed Dean and he was called to the Bar of Manitoba that same year. Dean EDWARDS led the transformation of legal education in Manitoba, which saw the adoption of a full-time Bachelor of Laws program, the creation of the University of Manitoba Faculty of Law, and the building of Robson Hall. Dean EDWARDS served terms as President of the Canadian Association of Law Teachers, chair of the Committee of Canadian Law Deans, and member of the executive committee of the Commonwealth Legal Education Association. He was also a member of the University of Manitoba Board of Governors. After resigning as Dean in 1979, Professor EDWARDS served until 2005 as President of the Manitoba Law Reform Commission. He also served as a Manitoba member of the Canadian Uniform Law Commission and as a director of the Federation of Law Reform Agencies of Canada. Clifford EDWARDS was known by his students as an outstanding and wise teacher and sympathetic counsellor. He was dedicated to the education and welfare of his students. On their nomination, he received the University's Stanton Award for excellence in teaching. Although he officially retired a few years ago, he continued to lecture until the spring of this year. For nearly 20 years, he also taught commercial law in the Faculty of Management. His half-century of law teaching in Manitoba is a record almost certain to remain unequalled. In recognition of his many distinguished contributions to legal education, law reform and community service, Professor EDWARDS was made Queen's Counsel (1980), was appointed Dean-Emeritus of the Faculty of Law (1986), and received the Manitoba Bar Association Distinguished Service Award (1995). In 2005 he was recognized by Rotary International as a Paul Harris Fellow. He was appointed a member of the Order of Canada in 2006 and a member of the Order of Manitoba in 2007. A person of quiet but sure Christian faith, Cliff was an Elder at the Church of the Way for 38 years and in recent years a member of Saint Aidan's Anglican Church. He served on the Canadian and international board of governors of SIM, Scripture Union and InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. A memorial service will be held on Friday, July 11 at 2 p.m. at St. Aidan's Anglican Church, 274 Campbell Street, Winnipeg. A reception will follow at Robson Hall (Faculty of Law), University of Manitoba. Flowers are gratefully declined. If Friends so desire, donations may be made in Cliff 's memory to SIM Canada, 10 Huntingdale Blvd, Scarborough, Ontario M1W 2S5; or Scripture Union, 1885 Clements Rd - Unit 226, Pickering, Ontario L1W 3V4; or to 'University of Manitoba Clifford Edwards Memorial Fund', c/o Dean's Office, Faculty of Law, Winnipeg, Manitoba R3T 2N2. Cliff had expressed a desire that this fund assist law students in financial need. Thomson 'In the ParK' 925-1120 Send expressions of sympathy to www.mem.com
