Pero was removed to the general hospital at 2:30 Saturday morning by the police after dr. D M McDonald had been called and ordered the man immediately sent to the hospital. Investigation made by the police this afternoon after Dr. Calder had informed them that there was no hope for Pero disclosed that he had met Edward Arsenau of Main street Saturday afternoon about four o’clock near Senator’s Corner. Pero had said he was not feeling well and that he had 25 cents with which he intended to purchase a bottle of rubby dub. Arseneau urged him not to drink the rubby-dub but Pero replied that he had been drinking and that he had not eaten anything all day. Mrs Leo Doyle, Log Row stated to the police that Pero came to her house about five o’clock Friday evening, stating that he had not eaten all day. He was pretty full then and after getting his supper he remained until nine o’clock. Before he left he told Mrs Doyle that he had been drinking beer and wine and that he had drank a fifty cent bottle of rubbing alcohol raw out of the bottle. Pero, stated Mrs Doyle, in her statement to the police returned to her place about half past ten, appearing to have sobered up somewhat. Before she retired Mrs Doyle gave him a lunch, but he did not eat much and laid down on a couch down stairs. Leo Doyle, stated to the police that he returned from work at one o’clock. Pero spoke to him, asking if it was a fine night. Mr Doyle had something to eat and then retired. His wife told him that Pero had been quite drunk but had sobered up and added that Pero told her he drank a fifty cent bottle of rubbing alcohol. Mr Doyle said he was only a short time in bed when he heard Pero groaning and going to where he was, found Pero walking around the room holding onto his stomach as if in great pain. Pero asked Doyle to get him a drink of baking soda, afterwards asking for a drink of water. The pain continued to get more severe and moved to his heart and left shoulder. Doyle went out and returned with Dr. McDonald, who after an examination of Pero ordered his immediate removal to a hospital. Mr Doyle then rushed to Senator’s Corner where he met police officers and a few minutes later officers Hugh McLean and Buddy McDonald were on their way to the General Hospital with Pero. On Saturday he seemed to be improving and it was felt there was no immediate danger but today he took a turn for the worst and Dr. Calder who was in attendance with Dr. McDonald, notified the police. He sank rapidly and at five thirty he passed away. On his way to the hospital Pero told the officers that he had drank the rubbing alcohol, but refused to divulge where he had secured it. The unfortunate young man had formerly been employed in No. 11 colliery, but of late had not been regularly employed. His father, Charles Pero resides near Sydney Mines and he has several other relatives in and around Sydney Mines and the Boularderie district. The remains were taken to Curry’s Undertaking parlors and prepared for burial. After conferring with Crown Prosecutor Patterson, Chief McInnis decided that in view of the knowledge in the hands of the police an inquest was not necessary, it being agreed by all that the man had come to his death by his own rashness in drinking raw rubbing alcohol.

"He explored difficult subjects, often ahead of his time, with films like A RAISIN IN THE SUN, with Sidney Poitier, which dealt with racism, and THE DOLLMAKER, starring Jane Fonda, which dealt with women coming into their own as people and breadwinners." Petrie won directing Emmys for 1976's ELEANOR AND FRANKLIN and for ELEANOR AND FRANKLIN: THE WHITE HOUSE YEARS in 1977. Most recently, he worked on the 2001 TV productions WILD IRIS and WALTER AND HENRY. He also served in a number of leadership positions with the Directors Guild of America. His movie work included 1980's RESURRECTION, starring Ellen Burstyn, 1981's FORT APACHE, THE BRONX, with Paul Newman and 1978's THE BETSEY. Petrie wrote and directed THE BAY BOY, starring Kiefer Sutherland and Liv Ullman, an autobiographical film that won two Canadian Genie Awards for Best Picture and Best Screen Play. Petrie is survived by wife Dorothea, sons Dan Jr. and Donald; and twin daughters Mary and June. All have followed in his footsteps as producers, writers and directors.

Pâté Walter John Pâté
8/26/2004 Maureen McNeil Walter John Pâté died about 9:30 am BC time, Aug.26,2004, at Surrey Memorial Hospital. He was the son of Walter Pâté and Kate Floyd. Walter was born in Sydney, Cape Breton, lived as a young child in Portsmouth Ohio, and Baltimore, Maryland until his father died. His father was son of Hillaire Tranquille Pâté and Marie Cecile Samson. His mother took her husband's body to be buried in L'Ardoise and because of finances, and stayed in the community. She eventually married Georgie Mombourquette of Lower L'Ardoise. Walter went to WWII at the age of 15, joining the Cape Breton Highlanders. He served in Italy and the Netherlands. He spent his working years in the Signal Corps in the Canadian Armed forces, serving in Halifax, Sidney River, Ladner, BC and Kingston, Ont. He was posted back to Ladner, BC in 1960, and retired to North Delta, BC in 1969. He married Jean Frances Mary Casey Nov. 18 1946, who survives him, along with six children Maria, Joe, Sheila Margaret, Walter and Robert. He is also survived by many grandchildren and great grandchildren. Walter suffered for many years from Multiple Sclerosis and wounds from the war which ultimately determined his death. In the end, he went peacefully. He had many friends in L'Ardoise whom he grew up with, and from some stories played a few tricks. He took us to L'Ardoise as children, and we loved Kate, Georgie and Roseanne and he introduced us to his Grandfather, Hillaire Tranquille, and Marie Cecile, his Grandmother as well as many neighbours--the Clannons, Campbells, Birets and Samsons. George Burke was a great friend of his as was Sally Mombourquette, the school teacher. Mary Biret and Theresa and Herman, Mary's sister. And to many others who remember him, he says adieu.

PACE J. Shirley PACE Chronicle Herald 11/22/2006
PACE, J. Shirley
PACE, J. Shirley - Passed away Monday, November 20, 2006, following a brief illness. The widow of the late Hon. Leonard L. Pace, Shirley was a resident of Seabright for over 25 years. She is survived by her three children, Beverly (Roger), Robert (Louise), and David (Patricia). Originally from Glace Bay, she was the eldest daughter of the late Reta and Lloyd MacFadgen's nine children. She is survived by her brother, Robert (Mabel), and sisters, Josephine (Glasier), Beverly (Trevor), Myrtle (Wayne), and brother-in-law, Dr. Graham Pace. A hard worker, she excelled throughout high school receiving many top prizes and went on to study at Truro's Normal Teacher's College. She later returned to Glace Bay to teach grade nine. Shirley's focus was always on her family. With the little money she had earned from teaching school, Shirley and her brothers created a family business for their father, aptly named McFadgen's Bakery. A strong advocate of education, she went on to earn a
Bachelor of Arts degree from Acadia University where she and Leonard met. The two later married and moved to Halifax where Leonard was attending law school. It would be here where Shirley would raise her three children. However, she wasn't a typical "mother of three" as throughout Leonard's political and public life, she worked tirelessly on his campaigns as both a key strategist and his closest confidante. When it came to business, Shirley always had a vision for success. She managed the finances at McFadgen's and was instrumental in helping her sons create their company, Evergreen Landscaping Ltd. Her entrepreneurial spirit did not lay solely with her immediate family. Shirley proved herself the consummate entrepreneur in opening The Christmas Shoppe and operating Canadian Christmas Wreaths with her daughters-in-law, Louise and Patricia. Shirley will be forever missed by all nine of her grandchildren. To them, she was more than a grandmother. She would not hesitate to
jump in the ocean with them on a late August afternoon at "the Boathouse" or to challenge them to improve a less than perfect test score. As a grandmother, Shirley will be remembered for the love and encouragement she gave to all her grandchildren, while teaching them to be the best that they could be. Shirley was not only a loving and caring mother and grandmother to her immediate family, she also gave her knowledge and time freely to anyone, whether they sought advice in matters of business, or simply required the comfort of a friend. Until her very last day, Shirley was a true source of energy and inspiration to all her family and friends. Visitation will take place in William Black Memorial Church in Glen Margaret today from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. The funeral service will be held at 2 p.m. on Thursday, November 23, in William Black Memorial Church. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the William Black Memorial Cemetery Fund in Glen Margaret.
Memorial donations can be mailed to 110 Bayview Dr., Hackett's Cove, NS B3Z 3J9

Paunins Anna Paunins Cape Breton Post 8/22/2009
Anna Paunins, Sydney

Born in 07/11/1921

With profound sadness we announce that our dear mother, “Nanny” and friend, Anna, passed away peacefully after a courageous battle with COPD at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney, on August 20, 2009, surrounded by her loving family.
On November 7, 1921, Anna was born in Vilani, Latvia and was one of nine children. Her youth was spent housecleaning, gardening, tending cows and horses, picking berries and mushrooms and she was most passionate about running everywhere.
The Second World War found Anna in Germany, involved in an underground covert brigade where she heroically provided safety and escape to the Jewish people in peril.
In 1946 she married her husband, Anton, settled in Germany and gave birth to Sylvia and John. She immigrated to Canada in 1951 with her family and made Sydney her home.
Anna is now happily reunited with her husband, Anton; her grandson, Seamus Flynn, along with members of her immediate family and relatives.
She is survived by daughters, Sylvia (Jimmy) Flynn, Three Fathom Harbour, Mary, Sydney; sons, John (Margaret), Cornhill, N.B., Leonard (Sandy), Meaghers Grant, Frank (Susan), Winnipeg and Tim (Katherine), Stittsville, ON; grandchildren, Angelina and Luke Flynn and Ashley Paunins.
In her final months and throughout her life Anna’s spirit was filled with a profuse love for Jesus and we know that she is now at peace in the arms of her Saviour and Lord.
Anna was an amazingly beautiful person with a deep love of life and believed with all her heart that we should love one another as Jesus loves us. So she spent her life loving her family, neighbours and all she met. She put love into action by being a faithful partner and friend to her husband, raising her children to have integrity and compassion, welcoming strangers and friends in her home, sharing what she grew in her garden with others and giving joy and comfort to others by placing their needs before her own.
Anna was gifted with many talents. She had a special love for music and played the accordion, autoharp, piano and harmonica. Her wish was to be a music angel in Heaven. She spent her leisure time knitting and crocheting beautiful afghans and loved to give them away as gifts. She had a very creative spirit and loved to paint pictures which we will now treasure. She loved work so much that it was hard to get her to rest even when she was not well. Even in Anna’s toughest times during her struggle with COPD she never complained, kept her sense of humour and always had a smile on her face. She truly showed us what it means to be a hero and her spirit, life and love will be etched in our hearts forever.
Visitation will take place at Sydney Memorial Chapel on Sunday, August 23, 2009 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. A mass celebrating Anna’s life will be held at St. Joseph’s Church, Cabot Street on Monday, August 24 at 11 a.m. with Rev. Gerald Dunphy officiating. A reception will be held in the church following mass.
“Our precious one loved us and others so much and she will be so greatly missed.
Rest in Blessed Peace, Anna. We love you.”

I whispered softly when mother was dying as soon she would close her loving eyes.
The angels were waiting to bear her gently to her new home beyond the skies.
I kissed her for soon she would leave me and asked her to clasp me to her breast,
as she did in days of my childhood as she sang me to my rest. Your son, Syl.

Lowell Pearson

Born in: New Victoria, Nova Scotia, Canada
Born on: 05/05/1940

Passed away in: New Victoria, Nova Scotia, Canada
Passed away on: 10/02/2010

Lowell Thomas Pearson of 28 Cameron St., New Victoria, died at 3:15 a.m. on Feb. 10, 2010, at the Halifax Infirmary.
Born in New Victoria on May 5, 1940, he was the son of the late Gordon and Constance ‘Mallie’ (Cameron) Pearson.
Lowell was a member of the former St. Joseph’s parish, New Victoria.
In addition to being the best husband, father, grandfather, uncle, son, brother and friend one could ever have, Lowell was an extraordinary personality with tremendous wit and humour. Never short for words and always quick with a joke or story to share, Lowell was a true original who shall be so very sadly missed by his loyal and loving family and friends. His laughter will forever remain in our hearts.
When it came to his family, there was nothing Lowell wouldn’t do to ensure the happiness and well-being of his true love and wife, Vera, and children by endlessly giving his love, support and profound wisdom.
A master craftsman, he could turn his hand to pretty much anything. The crack of dawn and a broken heart are exceptions to what he could repair or modify. One was left to marvel at his abilities to problem-solve and critically think.
Lowell owned and operated L. Pearson Construction and later went on to form Victoria Builders Ltd. with his best friend and son, Gordon, by his side. Sadly, Gordie’s sudden death in 2008 marked the end of an era. Although Lowell officially died of complications due to congestive heart failure, most would claim that he died from a broken heart.
He was both president and union steward of the International Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners Union, Local 611 of New Waterford and District, now Local 1588 in Sydney, for both Port Hawkesbury and Glace Bay heavy water plants, respectively. Lowell also donned the hat of general foreman.
An outstanding outdoorsman, Lowell’s passions were nature and hunting. Communing with nature brought him great joy and solace, be it in woods or upon water’s shores. He respected life’s natural beauty with its furred and feathered friends. At home, he treasured his two Chihuahuas, Joe and Foo-Foo. He also enjoyed fishing with his grandsons, gardening, and yard work. In his earlier years, Lowell had been a fine amateur boxer.
The consummate warrior, Lowell fought a good fight before leaving this world, surrounded by his wife and daughters whom he adored. He died in the light of peace, love and God, with Archbishop Hayes attending his spiritual passing.
Lowell is survived by his wife of 49 years, the former Vera Ratchford; daughters, Linda, Toronto, Nicole (Ian) Nearing, Beaverbank, Lower Sackville, Debbie Lee (Kenny), Glace Bay, Amanda, Dartmouth; one brother, Sonny (Selena), Toronto and daughter-in-law, Barbara, New Waterford. He also leaves behind his beloved grandchildren, Candace, Cameron, Coleton, Brenan, Haylee, Ryan, and two step-grandchildren, Chantel and Cortney.
He was predeceased by his cherished son, Gordie, and dear sister, Ave Maria.
Visitation for Lowell will be held Sunday from 2–4, 7–9 p.m. in the V.J. McGillivray Funeral Home, 380 Smith St., New Waterford. A celebration of Lowell’s life, officiated by Fr. Doug MacDonald and Deacon Leo Penny, will take place at the Parish Church of St. Leonard, Mount Carmel Avenue, New Waterford on Monday at 10 a.m. Interment will be held at Forest Haven Memorial Gardens, followed by a reception at St. Agnes Hall.
As an expression of sympathy for Lowell, memorial donations in his memory may be made to the Nova Scotia Heart and Stroke Foundation and the local S.P.C.A.
Online condolences to the Pearson family can be expressed through the funeral home website www.vjmcgillivray.ca.
God saw you getting tired,
And a cure was not to be,
So He put his arms around you,
And whispered, “Come to Me”.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands at rest.
God broke our heart to prove to us
He only takes the best.

It is with great sorrow and sadness that we inform you of the death of our father, grandfather, great-grandfather and husband, Dr. Lawrence Frederick Paul of Membertou, on May 1, 2010, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital.
Lawrence was born on the Old Kings Road Reserve in Sydney on June 29, 1925, to the late Percy Paul and Isabel (Denny) Paul. His family relocated to present day Membertou that same year.
In 1943 at the young age of 18 years, Lawrence enlisted in the army and received basic training in Yarmouth, N.S. It was in Yarmouth that a call went out for volunteers to join the paratroopers and he signed up. After receiving extensive training in Aldershot, N.S., Lawrence went to Winnipeg for a medical to become a paratrooper. Upon completion of all tests, he went to Camp Shilo in Shilo, Man., headquarters of the Paratroop Training Centre.
Lawrence served overseas in the Second World War with the 1st Canadian Parachute Battalion attached to the British Airborne Division. The Battalion served in France, Belguim and the Rhine. The Battalion returned to Canada to prepare for the Pacific, however, the war ended and the Battalion was disbanded. Lawrence returned home and pursued his education in the field of drywall and interior design.
When the Korean Conflict broke out, Lawrence volunteered. He took his discharge in 1954.
From 1955-1963 Lawrence worked with various companies as a drywaller and then formed his own business, employing six trained First Nation drywallers.
Lawrence was elected as Chief of Membertou in 1967 and served a two-year term. He was so proud of all the changes and progress being made in his community. He was a proud Mi'kmaq.
In 1969 Lawrence was a co-founder of the Union of Nova Scotia Indians and started an alcohol and drug program. He later founded the Native Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselling Association and served as the executive director. He worked as a regional consultant for the Department of National Health and Welfare and was instrumental in helping to set up alcoholism programs in the provinces of New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. He later worked as a consultant to the Boston Indian Council and set up Tecumseh House, a treatment and recovery house for First Nations people living in the Greater Boston area. He served as executive director of the Nova Scotia Arts and Crafts Society, setting up regional corporations for Native Arts and Crafts on a National level and then worked as an economic development officer for UNSI. Lawrence retired in 1985, but remained steadfast in his efforts to reduce alcohol and drug abuse among his people.
For all his tireless work in the field of alcoholism and drug abuse education and his contributions to his community of Membertou, Lawrence gratiously and humbly accepted an Honorary Doctor of Laws (Honoris Causa) from the University College of Cape Breton at May 1995 Convocation.
Lawrence is survived by his wife, Joan (Hiscock) Paul; his sons, Lawrence (Louise) and Adrian (Sheila); his daughters, Ethel, Lauria Ann, Jeannette, Anna and Eileen; 33 grandchildren, 50 great-grandchildren, and a great great-granddaughter, Gabrielle. He is also survived by his sisters, Ruth Christmas and Delores Buckland and sister-in-law, Elizabeth Paul. Lawrence is survived by many nieces and nephews. He is survived by his mother-in-law, Jean Hiscock; brothers-in-law, Jim, Wayne, Ron, Todd and sister-in-law, Brenda Lee. He will be missed by his community and by everyone whose life he touched.
He was predeceased by his first wife, Ethel (Cope) Paul, daughter, Karen (2008), granddaughter, Wendy Ann Denny (2002) and grandsons, Brian Nevin (1999) and Darrell (1968).

Pittas Heather M. (MacQueen) Pittas Cape Breton Post 4/26/2010
Mrs. Heather M. Pittas

Born in: Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
Born on: 13/04/1951

Passed away in: Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
Passed away on: 24/04/2010

Heather Margaret Pittas Born 59 years ago in April; married 19 years ago in April, our beloved Heather died peacefully April 24, 2010, at the Palliative Care Unit of the Victoria General Hospital site in Halifax.
A warm, vibrant woman, she has gone far too soon.
Born in Edmonton in 1951 the youngest of four children to the Very Reverend Angus J. MacQueen and his wife Minetta.
Heather grew up in London, Ont. and Toronto. Summers were spent at the family cottage on the Mira, and like her parents her soul was rooted in Cape Breton and its culture.
Heather is survived by her husband, Nick Pittas; daughters, Anna and Rosie, of Halifax, and by her sisters, Marian (Colin McNairn), Joan (John Warren) and Barbara, all of Toronto. She is also survived by her nieces, Heather Tanti, Katie Warren, Martha Norton; and nephew, James McNairn also of Toronto.
She was predeceased by her father and mother, and nephew, Stewart Warren.
Heather attended Dalhousie University and graduated with a BA in 1972. After travels in Europe, she studied at McGill University from where she received a B.Ed in 1974. Over the next several years she worked variously as a schoolteacher and later in banking services in Nova Scotia, British Columbia and Ontario. During this period she also went around the world with her first husband Bill Niven, including across the former Soviet Union on the Trans Siberian Express. She settled in Nova Scotia in 1979 and had careers as a stockbroker and in corporate training and development with the TD Bank in Halifax, where she was involved among other things with the establishment locally of the Green Line service, the first Canadian discount securities broker.
In 1991 she married Nick Pittas, and returned to Dalhousie to enrol in the Masters of Arts program in Adult Education from where she received her MA in 1994. In 1993 she took the position of Manager of Learning and Development at the Workers Compensation Board of Nova Scotia, and over the next 13 years played a pivotal role in transforming the workplace to one dedicated to continuous learning and improvements in the staff employment culture at the Board.
In 1997 Heather and Nick welcomed their first daughter Anna into their family, and two years later she was joined by their younger daughter Rosie. Heather retired from the WCB in 2006 to spend more time with her growing children and she cherished those precious days with her family. Throughout her life, as a daughter, sister, aunt, wife, mother, friend or colleague, Heather gave her love generously to all who knew her. A woman of strong feelings, she cared as much for the feelings of others as her own. She will be sorely missed by all those whose lives were enriched by her abundant love.
Heather's zest for life, her ready humour and indomitable spirit will be long remembered by, and comfort, her surviving family and friends. A courageous woman, she lived her values openly. Timeless values that sprang fresh from her love of family and friends, her examined faith and capacity to feel deeply her own truth and that of others.
There will be visitations at Cruikshank's Funeral Home on Robie Street between 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, April 27, 2010. The funeral service will be held Wednesday, April 28, 2010, at St. Andrew's United Church on Robie Street at 1 p.m., Rev. Linda Yates officiating, with reception to follow at the Church. A private interment will follow later.
In place of flowers the family suggests contributions to St. John's United Church Building Fund, Halifax in Heather's memory. We also wish to thank the dedicated staff of the Palliative Care Unit for their care, comfort and compassion during Heather's final days.

Pittman Capt. Terence Robert Pittman  CBP 10/4/2010
Terry passed away in Halifax on Oct. 1, 2010, at the age of 69 years, following an accident on Sept. 24, 2010. Dad was born in London, England, to the late Frank and Helen Pittman during the London bombings and at a young age was evacuated to the countryside for safety. Despite the difficult  circumstances around his early childhood, dad excelled in school and in life. Dad spent all of his work life in the shipping industry both at sea and on land. It was while at sea and travelling to Sydney that dad met mum, Connie Pittman. They married 47 years ago at HolyRedeemer and shortly after their wedding moved to England where they lived until dad was 33 years old. At that time, looking for work on land, we immigrated to Canada where dad had  obtained a job as a marine pilot. Dad worked as a Cape Breton pilot with the Atlantic Pilotage Authority for 35 years until his retirement.  Dad's passion for the sea and shipping continued into his retirement where he was the chair of the Sydney Port Corp., working tirelessly to revitalize Sydney harbour. In addition to his work within the shipping industry, dad had many hobbies, talents and interests. Dad and mum sponsored foster children overseas and hosted an international exchangeStudent who continues a close relationship to this day. Dad was a passionate gardener and was proud to tell anyone about plants and flowers he was trying to grow. He enjoyed golf and reading when given the time. He and mum own property in  Baddeck that he got pleasure from working at. He enjoyed travelling including a recent cross-Canada road trip, spending time in western Canada visiting two of his children and his  grandchildren there and also visiting England and Spain. Dad and mum were looking forward to even more travel. Dad enjoyed the arts and theatre and was a misguided Boston Bruins fan who never gave up hope of them winning a Stanley Cup again. Dad was a loving husband, father and grandfather. He was immensely proud of his children and grandchildren and revelled in their successes. As a lifelong learner, and with a strong  commitment to education, dad with mum, supported and encouraged formal and informal education and whenever the opportunity arose, a teachable moment ensued. Although he often joked  about being an honorary Cape Bretoner, he was passionate about the island and worked hard to give back to it. He has touched many people in his life evidenced by the outpouring ofSupport during this difficult time. We will miss dad immensely as he still had much life in him and many lessons to teach us. He could turn his hand to anything - plumbing, carpentry, landscaping, electrical work and cooking.  He was a mentor to many and a hero to his children and grandchildren.  Dad was a stellar individual and a true gentleman. He will be terribly missed by his loving wife, Connie (Collins) Pittman and his four daughters, Debra and Gary Samek - Nicola and Brendan;  Angela and Glenn Gouthro - Fiona, Sarah and Marc; Marion - Gavin; and Kate and Richard Hines - Lauren, Cole and Ben. Terry is also survived by his two sisters, Heather and Valerie, both in  England, and his brother, Kevin, England. There are many other family members in Canada and England who will miss dad. As a family, we have been touched by the caring actions and calls of support that have come from many places. Visitation will be 2-4 and 7-9 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 5 at Sydney Memorial Chapel. A celebration of dad's life will be held Wednesday, 11 a.m. at Holy Redeemer Church with Rev. ErrolMacDonald officiating.

His passion was farming, where from dawn till dusk he would be found tending his livestock and maintaining the farm. Summers were spent hay making and gardening. For pastime, he loved to hunt and fish, enjoyed watching wrestling, going to stock car races, and playing cards and darts. He loved to watch his Toronto Blue Jays and the Maple Leafs.

Parker Clifford 'Cliff' Parker CBP 6/22/2012
Peacefully at Huronview on Tuesday, June 19, 2012, Clifford Gordon Parker of Clinton, Ont. Clifford or Cliff, as he was known, was born at Kisbey, Sask., son of the late James Bennett Parker and Charlotte Melinda Gordon on April 15, 1915. The son of homesteaders, his first love was to the land but losing his father early in life and family moving to the west coast put his farming career on hold. He tried his hand at a number of jobs including assistant to a funeral director, which worked out until he had to retrieve three of his friends. A smart mother sent him back to farming, something he was cut out for. The timing was not in his favour for farming in Saskatchewan at the time, and for him was not very good. With the advice of a school teacher, he applied for the Royal Canadian Air Force. Times were so bad he had to borrow $25 from his uncle to get to Regina. Placing his application, he was ready to head home with only enough money to get by on, there was no time to linger. It was then that he got word that he was accepted and would be heading out the next day. So he was on his way to Trenton, Ont. for training. The next posting sent him to Halifax and into the arms of his late wife, Martha Flora Parker of McNab’s Cove, Cape Breton. She had been working in Halifax at the time. It must have been love at first sight or as I was told she made the best sandwiches. A tip his uncle had given him when he left home; look for a girl who is older and a good cook. This advice came from a confirmed bachelor. Now the rest is history, from Halifax to Clinton in 1945, to Vancouver, Winnipeg, Moose Jaw and back to Clinton in 1955. The RCAF was only the beginning and after 35 years retiring was not in the cards. Clifford joined the Clinton Community Credit Union, with his wealth of knowledge he stayed for the next 20 years. Still able to curl, garden and travel from coast to coast in Canada, all while buying and selling houses. His gardening was always his love as if it were a section of land in Saskatchewan. Never afraid to try out a new crop, whether it was asparagus or potatoes, he gave it his all. He is the loving father of Gordon and Sandra, Georgetown, and David, Clinton. He loved his grandchildren and will be sadly missed by David ‘Davey’ and Dawn Parker, Clinton, Yvonne and Leon Bessie, London, Shannon and Michael DiRenzo, Georgetown, Sean and Darcy Parker, Burlington, Ryan and Bronwyn Parker, Milton. A great joy were all his great-grandchildren, Alice, Parker and Sadie DiRenzo, Sydney and Brooklyn Parker, Brynn and Keely Parker, Monica, Michael and Amanda Bessie and Kerry and Michelle Parker. Clifford was the last of his family, predeceased by one brother, John (Ida), Kamloops, B.C., four sisters, Irene Anderson (Andreas), N.B., Arvilla, Saskatchewan, Lulu Hugo (Mark), Kamloops, B.C., Olive Ferrero (Albert), Ladysmith, B.C. Predeceased by one daughter-in-law, Claire Parker. Friends will be received at the Falconer Funeral Homes Ltd., 153 High St., Clinton, Ont. Sunday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Parish prayers will be held at the funeral home Sunday evening at 6:45 p.m. Mass of Christian Burial will be held at St. Peter’s Church, Goderich, Monday, June 25, 2012, at 11 a.m. Fr. Gary Ducharme will officiate, assisted by Fr. John Pluta and Fr. Paul Mooney. Interment Clinton Cemetery.
