Kingdom Melody Song #111 (He Will Call) (Job 14:13-15).
Verse 1: Life, like a mist, appears for just a day, then disappears tomorrow.
All that we are can quickly fade away, replaced with tears and sorrow.
If a man should die, can he live again? Hear the promise God has made:
CHORUS: He will call; The dead will answer. They shall live at his command.
For he will have a longing. For the work of his own hand.
So have faith, and do not wonder, For our God can make us stand.
And we shall live forever, As the work of His own hand.
Verse 2: Friends of our God, though they may pass away, Will never be forsaken.
All those asleep who in God's mem'ry stay, From death He will awaken.
Then we'll come to see all that life can be: Paradise Eternally.
CHORUS
Based on John 6:40;11:11,43; James 4:14,17

JOHNSTONE, Reverend Father James Joseph Johnstone Obituary | Print |

JOHNSTONE, Reverend Father James Joseph, CR -

Johnstone_JamesThe Congregation of the Resurrection announces the death of Father James Joseph Johnstone, CR on Sunday, March 15, 2015 of Resurrection Manor, Waterloo, Ontario. He was 89 years old, in his 71st year of religious life and 64th year of ordained priesthood.

Father Johnstone is predeceased by his parents Edward and Margaret (Cook) Johnstone, a brother Edward and a sister, Beth Charlick.

He is survived by a sister-in-law, Joan Johnstone and a brother-in-law, Bert Charlick and a number of nieces and nephews.

Father Johnstone professed his religious vows in the Congregation on September 8, 1944 and was ordained to the ministerial priesthood on October 21, 1951 at St. Peter's Seminary in London. He began his ministry as a Catholic educator at St. Jerome's High School, Kitchener; St. John's College, Brantford; and North Bay College (Scollard Hall), North Bay.

Father Johnstone served a substitute pastor in our Bermuda parishes as needed. In 1990 he returned to Brantford to St. Peter's Residence and helped at our C.R. Polish (English) Parish of St. Joseph celebrating the English Masses. In 2012 Fr. J.J. retired to Resurrection Manor in Waterloo.

Fr. J.J. was a well loved and respected priest by the many people he came into contact with. He loved teaching and ministering to people in the parish. Fr. J.J. enjoyed his family, relatives and many friends. Fr. J.J. was a great conversationalist, a lover of theatre, opera, murder mysteries and the dramatic; he had an engaging sense of humour.

Fr. J.J.'s dying on the 'Ides of March' is but a reflection of his passion for Shakespeare.

We wish to express our gratitude to C.C.A.C. and the doctors and nurses at Grand River Hospital for their excellent care.

Arrangements out of Kitchener. Visitation of Father Johnstone will take place at St. Joseph Parish, 235 Brant Avenue, in Brantford on Wednesday, March 18th from 2:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M. and 7:00 P.M. to 9 P.M. A Vigil Prayer Service will be held at 8:00 P.M.

LEUNG, Sun-Pui 'Paul' (S.P.) Leung, Obituary | Print |

LEUNG, Sun-Pui "Paul" (S.P.) -

Sun-Pui Leung passed away surrounded by his loving family on Saturday, March 14, 2015 in Hamilton, Ontario.

Sun-Pui was the beloved husband of Helen to whom he was married for 43 years.

He is survived by his eldest son Leslie and his wife Louise and their children Caelan, Ethan, Rhiannon, Ronan; his son Norman and his wife Lisa and their daughters Katherine and Julia; his daughter Sandra and her husband Mike. He also leaves his younger siblings; brother Doug and his wife Jane, sister Linda and her husband Paul.

He will be dearly missed by his nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.

Sun-Pui was also known as S.P. by his work colleagues and his baptismal name Paul by his friends in the St. Ann's Catholic community.

Sun-Pui was born on October 6, 1944 in Yanping, China. He spent his formative years in Hong Kong. This was where he met his future wife Helen and where they were married on March 20, 1971.  Sun-Pui landed his first job with the Hong Kong government, and quickly moved to starting a family, welcoming Leslie in May 1973. Sun-Pui, Helen and Leslie departed for Parksville, British Columbia in 1974, joining his parents and siblings.

Shortly after their arrival in Canada, his family expanded again with the arrival of Norman in October 1974. Sun-Pui made the cross-country move to Hamilton with his young family, where he completed an MBA at McMaster University.  Upon graduation he joined Dofasco, starting in the accounting department. He rose to become to senior financial manager at the firm before retiring in 2009.

Sun-Pui was a devoted father and husband, spending most of his free time with his family. Family life became even busier when Sandra joined the family in August 1984. Outside of time spent with family, he enjoyed reading, long walks, tinkering with computers, church, spending time with friends, and later with his grandchildren.  In retirement, he found more time to pursue his interest in cooking, baking, watching sports and travel.

Heartfelt thanks to Dr. Juergens, Dr. Swaminath and staff at the Juravinski Hospital.

A Funeral Mass will be offered at ST. ANNS ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH, 11 Wilson Street West, Ancaster on Thursday March 19th at 11 a.m.
