WALCOTT, George Walcott

WALCOTT, George Walcott  -

On Thursday June 20th, 2024, after 76 years of life, George passed away at his home.

George (Georgie) was born November 11, 1947, in Georgetown, Guyana. Georgie is the son of Olga Giddings and Arnim Walcott. Sisters: Waveney Limerick (deceased), Caroline Patricia Anderson(deceased), Shirley Caleb(deceased); and Pauline Walcott. Georgie is adored by his many nieces and nephews.

Georgie started his primary school years at Smith Church Congregational school and continued his High School education at Central High School, Georgetown. In his early years, Georgie sang on the Radio Demerara Ovaltine show.
While in High School, Georgie remained physically fit and buff by means of weightlifting.

Georgie emigrated to Canada in 1967, where he joined his sister Waveney. George completed a career at the Toronto Post Office as a Postal Clerk.

Georgie led a quiet and private life, which included reading the Bible daily. On the kitchen table, George kept a dictionary which he appeared to study every chance he got. He often said, "Ask me any word, and I will give you the definition". He was always right.

His handwriting was impeccable, and he kept miscellaneous writings around the house. People often commented about the uniqueness of his handwriting.

Georgie was observant of people and things around him, and he possessed a good sense of humor. His kindness and generosity were displayed in faithfully selecting and sending thoughtful greeting cards which sometimes included "a small piece". He often shared his knowledge of all things freely.

Georgie will be greatly missed by family and friends, and everyone who had the pleasure of meeting him.

We are saddened to share the news of the passing of our much loved mom and Oma, Anna Louise Weber at Campbell House Hospice in Collingwood, Ontario in the early morning hours of June 21st, 2024.

Anna was born in Pannaugen (formerly East Prussia), April 28, 1933 and immigrated to Canada in 1957 where she made a life in Oshawa with husband, Eugen who predeceased her in 2002.

Best mom ever to Annette (affectionately known as Pusti) and #1 son-in-law, Glenn; beloved Oma to the sunshine of her life, Zoe and favourite person of our cat, Harley (sorry, Zoe!). Survived by son, Eugen (Donna) of Oshawa and family in Germany (Dietmar, Karin, Manfred, Annemarie and children).

Loved by her extended Cunningham family who welcomed her into the fold as one of their own from the moment Glenn came on the scene.

Mom was an integral part of our family having lived with us in Whitby for 13 years prior to making the move to Collingwood in 2019. Known to all as Oma, you couldn’t help but smile when she crossed your path walking the neighbourhood daily (save for icy and rainy days).

She loved the life, adventures and vacations we shared, as did we. Mom, hope your final journey includes a BBQ’ed burger, a Pink Whitney martini and a smooth ride in the red Porsche with your dearest sister, Greta by your side.

Special thanks to some of the wonderful doctors and nurses at Collingwood General and Marine Hospital who cared for mom including Dr. Peter Holloway, Dr. David Beisel, Dr. Jack Ceaser and the many nurses and PSW’s (among them: Breanne, Cynthia, Emma, Jenna, Katie, Chris).

WILE, Ira Byron Wile

WILE, Ira Byron Wile -  It is with heavy hearts and a profound sense of loss that we announce the passing of Ira Byron Wile. He passed peacefully, surrounded by family and love, on Tuesday, June 18, 2024, at the age of 90.

Ira spent his entire life working hard, starting on his family’s farm in New Ross, Nova Scotia before setting out for an adventure being a crew member on cargo ships running through the Great Lakes.

He later worked for the Metro Toronto Police as a maintenance worker, before retiring in 1989. Retirement didn’t stop Ira from keeping busy and he soon found great enjoyment in the Colborne Legion where he was an active member for many years including Branch President for 2 terms. He was also Zone F2 Veterans Service Officer and has many awards for his Legion service.

Ira was a gentleman in every sense of the word. He opened up his arms to many with great patience and compassion. He was always active and loved to be involved in the community. He enjoyed bowling, playing cards, billiards, puzzles and was an avid walker, walking upwards of 5 kms a day up into his 80s. Dear son of the late Arnold and Nellie Wile and brother of Grant (Gwen), Royce (Mary) and Randolf (Lynne).

He will be profoundly missed by his wife of 34 years, Faye.

Family meant everything to Ira and he took great pride in not only his own children but all of his extended family, no matter the relation. His family’s wellbeing was always at the forefront of everything that he did. He instilled great values about integrity, compassion, patience and the importance of hard work to all of his children. Ira was a proud father to his 4 children Wendy, Arnold, Tim (Jo-Ann) and Rhonda (Kenny). He opened his arms to his stepchildren, Perry (Dale), Glynn (Brenda), Yvonne, Steven (Julia), Sandra (Darryl) and Laura (Al).

Grandfather to Raymond (Ash Leigh), Matthew, Carina (Stefano), Ashley (David), Hannah (Joey), Autumn, Alan, Riley, Paige and Madelyn. Great grandfather to Barry, Clark, Pania, Freya, Awhina, Hakaraia, Taylor, Mason and Kamara. Predeceased by his sister Joyce, son-in-law Brian Howse, and stepson Perry Comeau. To say that he will be greatly missed is achingly true to everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him.

For those wishing to join us in the celebration of Ira’s life, we will be gathering at MOUNT LAWN FUNERAL HOME & CEMETERY, 21 Garrard Road, Whitby on Tuesday, June 25th. Visitation will start at 11am followed immediately by a memorial service, interment and reception. We look forward to gathering and sharing wonderful stories and memories of Ira.

If desired, memorial donations to The Alzheimer’s Society would be appreciated.

KENNETT, Brian John Kennett 

KENNETT, Brian John Kennett   -  Passed away suddenly in his sleep on June 13, 2024 at 88 years of age.

Brian was predeceased by his mother and father Jack and Amy Kennett and his sister Sheila Boliska who emigrated to Canada together when Brian, the youngest, was 17.

Brian's family and loving wife Pauline were saddened by his passing but happy to have had so many years together. Brian lived his life expecting to pass in his 50's as had all the previous generations of Kennett men. He retired from traditional work and started the snowbird lifestyle in his early 50's which lasted a good 25 years. Dealing with snow was not Brian's favourite pastime.

Brian had many careers starting the with Canadian Air Force where he rose to Corporal and teaching electronics. After 5 years he was scooped up by a fellow ex Air Force corporal into the computer industry which was in its infancy. Brian later started his own business, Kendata Electronics and other entrepreneurial activities including real estate and a Mr. Submarine franchise in Bowmanville.

Brian and Pauline met in the Air Force and had 3 children. Brain will be sadly missed by his wife Pauline, daughter Judy (Herve), son Steve (Angie) , grandchildren Matthew, Crystal, Nick, Brittany, son Alan (Karen), grandchildren Martin, Mike, Jason and Ashleigh and many great grandchildren, niece/nephew Susan (Peter), Elliot, Andrea (Jory) and in law family sister Audrey McVeigh (Jim), nephew Ralph Raike (Betty).

Arrrangements with MOUNT LAWN FUNERAL HOME .

Many thanks to all the wonderful caregivers at Hillsdale Estates. We appreciate all that you do to bring joy and laughter to our dear family members. You will be remembered. Special thanks to nurse Barb and OT Keelan for your personal touch caring for Brian's painful left hand
