CAMPBELL, Dr. Charles Sandwith Campbell - Obituary | Print |

CAMPBELL, Dr. Charles Sandwith

Campbell_Dr_Charles(March 1, 1925 – November 17, 2014)

Died peacefully in his 90th year at Lakeridge Health, Whitby.

Charles leaves behind his loving children John (Jerrolyn), James (Karen) and Susan (Sean) and grandchildren Alexander, Nicolas, Olivia and Caroline.

Predeceased by his beloved wife of 43 years, Dolores Frances.

Charles was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba and educated at Trinity College School, Port Hope, Ontario, and the University of Manitoba Medical School. After graduation, Charles moved to Toronto and trained at St. Michael’s Hospital where he met Dolores. In 1956, they married and moved to Oshawa, where they raised their family.

He practiced surgery at the Oshawa General Hospital for over 40 years where he also served as Chief of Staff.

Charles had music in his bones.  From his years in the school choir at TCS, to the “Merry Meds” at university, to the choir at St. George’s Memorial Anglican Church where he sang for over 50 years. Charles’ voice resonated wherever he went. He was also a regular lead actor in various musical productions of the Oshawa Choral Society.

A passionate golfer and gardener, Charles left a lasting impression on those he met. Always the perfect gentleman, he led through his character – his integrity and his commitment to his family and his profession.

With his dear brother Graham, they built adjacent cottages in Muskoka, where their two families passed blissful summers and built strong relationships.

Thanks to the staff at Lakeridge Health Whitby, and in particular Michelle Acorn. Special thanks also to Trish, Marilyn, Cassandra, Khadie, Debbie, Carol, Rose, Courtney, Lindsey, Lindsey, Dora, Andrea, and Julie, PSWs who spent countless hours with Charles at various stages over the past four years.

WATSON, John (Jack) Mathew - 

Watson_JohnWorld War II Veteran, Beloved Husband, Father and Grandfather

(January 22, 1924 – November 17, 2014)

After a full and much loved life, Dad was sadly taken from us to be reunited with his loving wife of 49 years, Leonora Joyce Watson.

For the last 16 years, Dad lived with his youngest son Randy, wife Karen, and his grandchildren Erin (Riccardo), Kyla (Bryon), and Brett in one big happy household. Dad will also be dearly missed by his eldest son Gary and grandson Logan. Dad will be forever remembered by his four grandchildren as their beloved “Poppa”.

Dad was a World War II Veteran with the Air Force as a Private from 1934 - 1936 and worked overseas as an engineer on fighter planes, and other war aircraft, joining the Army from 1936-1937 in the rank of Sergeant.

Dad returned home to meet the love of his life, and raised two beautiful sons, enjoying weekends at the cottage with Joyce on Long Island, Rice Lake. Dad worked for the Toronto Board of Education up to his retirement, and devoted his years to the Royal Canadian Legion as Member and Officer. 

Jack enjoyed watching golf finals every Sunday, followed by a Prime Rib and Yorkshire pudding dinner, and in recent years watching the Maple Leafs and the Blue Jays, and enjoying life with his dear companion, Agnes Ward.

At Dad’s request, we will have a celebration of life in his honour with his dearest friends and family.

In lieu of flowers, we ask kindly ask that donations be made in his name to Cancer Care at the Lakeridge Health Foundation.

Our family extends very special thanks to Dr. Stephen and Marnie Stern for their loving care and support - it was above and beyond! Our family is also very appreciative of those who helped to keep Dad safe and comfortable – thank you to Nurse Nancy, the Central East CCAC and Personal Support Workers, and also Veterans Affairs.

A very heartfelt thank you to the team at Lakeridge Health Oshawa, including the nurses and doctors of the sixth floor and palliative care for their tender care, and to his very own "Special K" who was alongside him til’ the end.

Legends never die. You will live on in our hearts forever. Until we meet again.

HILTON, Herbert 'Brian' Hilton - Obituary | Print |

HILTON, Herbert 'Brian', P.Eng. -

Hilton_HerbertRetired Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd.

It is with profound sadness we announce the peaceful passing of Brian on November 16, 2014 at the age of 92 in his retirement residence in Whitby, Ontario.

Born in 1922 in Prince George, British Columbia, he was the devoted husband of the late Sylvia Hilton and loving father of Jane of Whitby (Gord Fry), Jennifer of Deep River and the late Ian Hilton.

He was the proud grandfather of Alexander (Alec) and was looking forward to attending his graduation in Water Resource Engineering at the University of Guelph in February.

Brian grew up in the interior of BC where he first became acquainted with the mining industry, but it was his mother who introduced him to the piano and where he gained a lifelong love for music. In addition to playing the piano, the family fondly remembers his forays into musical productions, choral music, the trombone and even the bagpipes.

Through sheer determination Brian graduated from the University of British Columbia in Metallurgical Engineering in 1946. He worked briefly in Ontario before following a friend down to Brazil where he ran the assay laboratory for a mining company.

Returning to Canada in 1950, Brian was employed in the Yukon before he joined the British Geological Society and ventured to Uganda, Africa. It was here that he met his future wife who he later married in Penicuik, Scotland. The couple settled in Deep River, availing themselves of the many activities and where Brian enjoyed a successful career at the Chalk River Nuclear Labs.

As an avid outdoors person, Brian became a member of the Ski Patrol, Yacht and Tennis Club and enjoyed swimming, sailing, water skiing and skating on the Ottawa River. His favourite story was how he came to purchase his beloved log cottage back in the 1960s where the family made many memories over the years. His canoe adventures are legendary in the aluminum canoe they dubbed the "submarine."

Brian was a 30-year survivor of cancer but didn’t let him slow him down in his outdoor pursuits. He cross-country skied and played tennis weekly until his knees forced him to surrender.

He will be well remembered as an incredibly gentle man with a quick smile, without cross word or criticism of anyone. Not even when his daughter was learning to drive and took a post too close leaving a red streak down the side of the green car did he become annoyed. Brian had an enthusiasm for living, an interest in people and often said he was blessed with a good life. No regrets

By request there will be no visitation. A Celebratory Service will be conducted at a later date. In memoriam donations to the CHARITY of your choice would be gratefully appreciated.

The Hilton Family would like to thank the people at Amica at Whitby for their assistance and friendship during the past three years.

Always remembered, forever loved.

BOLAND, Michael Frederic Boland - Obituary | Print |

BOLAND, Michael Frederic -

Died peacefully surrounded by family and friends, November 15, 2014 at 62.

He was born in Toronto, June 10, 1952, eldest son of John and Janet (Lang) Boland.

Michael graduated from the University of Toronto Schools (UTS), obtained his Bachelor of Arts (Hons.) from Queens University, Masters Degree in History from Carleton and his LLB from Dalhousie in 1979. After graduating from law school, Michael was admitted to The Law Society of Upper Canada.

He commenced practicing law in our nation’s two official languages in North Bay, later moving to Whitby and concluding his career in Newcastle, ON. Michael’s clients fondly referred to him as one of the last old-time country lawyers, more concerned about them and their life rather than billable hours.

A proud Canadian, Michael felt strongly about his country, spoke French fluently and from a young age, and was a keen observer and active participant in our democratic process. His interest in history led to a lifelong study of the American Civil War and fascination with cartography. He travelled extensively and eagerly followed everyone else’s sojourns.

Michael will be amongst the last to have lived without having embraced technology. He took the greatest pleasure sitting with his pipe, fountain pen in hand, writing to those he loved. His faith always a strong, enduring component of his life.

The aroma of his pipe and presence behind the wheel of his Mustang around Newcastle are no longer present. That and so much more will be missed.

Surviving are his mother, Hon. Janet Boland, Q.C. (Dr. Tay Statten), brothers Christopher (Tara), and Nicholas (Laura). Wife Catherine Taylor. Children Andrea and Cavan and their mother Estelle Côté. His special family and friends Melissa and Lachlan (Natasha) McVie, Richard Arnfield, John Hynes and Michael Kontak. He was predeceased by his father John Boland.

In keeping with his wishes, cremation has occurred. 
Mass of the Christian Burial will take place at St. Francis of Assisi Roman Catholic Church, 214 King Ave. East, Newcastle ON, Wednesday, November 19th at 11am. Interment will be private.

Donations in Michael’s memory may be made to St. Francis of Assisi Roman Catholic Church Mortgage Reduction Fund.

The family extends appreciation to those caring for Michael at Lakeridge Health, Bowmanville, demonstrating professionalism, understanding and compassion. We are grateful to Fathers Peter Seabrooke, Gary Leahy and Gilbert Doddatto for their spiritual guidance to Michael, family and friends.

“We’ll meet again.” -  “On sera réunis.”
