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.

CHISAMORE, Lawrence Henry (Hank) Chisamore - Obituary | Print |

CHISAMORE, Lawrence Henry (Hank) -

October 1, 1939 - November 18, 2014

Hank loved nothing more than Ontario's outdoors. He enjoyed fishing, encouraging anyone to experience the pleasure he got from it. He was a dedicated and loyal father of four, who looked up to him and called him, "Dad". He was a proud man who enjoyed his occupation and continued it past retirement.

He passed away at his home, on November 18, after a long and courageous battle with heart disease. As was his wish, a private service was held with the ones who love and miss him dearly.

Hank is survived by his wife of fifty one years, Shirley, and his four children Patty, Penny, Pam and Jeff. He was an adored grandfather and great grandfather. He leaves behind many friends and co workers who considered him an irreplaceable part of their lives.

You are, and always will be sorely missed.

The family extends their gratitude to everyone who helped during this time, as well as the Durham Regional Police who offered exceptional compassion when responding to the call.

In loving memory, we encourage everyone to take their children fishing and experience the gift that brought Hank joy for many years.
