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.

CUMMINS, Moya Harp Cummins Obituary | Print |

CUMMINS, Moya Harp -

Cummins_Moya(February 10, 1948 – November 13, 2014)

Passed away on Thursday, November 13th, 2014.

Moya Cummins Harp Moya Cummins Harp was born in Kells, Ireland county Mead on Feb 10/1948 and started to grow up in a small farmhouse with only the basics. Her mom and dad met during the war effort in England, married and returned to Ireland, but it was hard for them because the war had taken all heavy equipment from their gravel business.

Sebastian Cummins “Sam” was very familiar with heavy equipment and pursued an opportunity to immigrate to Canada as a heavy equipment operator. I think Moya said one of his first jobs had to do with cleaning up after Hurricane Hazel. He later went on to build a successful earth-moving business. During those years Moya became familiar with his work. She was often recruited to round up parts in the middle of the night from Crothers. She could count loads and always knew the size classification of bulldozers.

Moya had a go at many jobs, even a season of chasing a singing career. She met many people back in the day of the Blue Note while she was discreetly singing with a band that frequented Buffalo. She is even on two of Bob Seger's tracks, as a background singer. “That's her story and she always stuck to it”. That album was laid down in Toronto – kind of a last minute production but is most famous today.

One day someone close to her asked her if she wanted to starve or have a career, and those words finally nudged her in to normal work. But she always had a real love and interest for music. Eventually she answered an ad for Accountant Jack Bloomberg and after an old-school interview, was hired and thrown into swim. Lucky for her, it fit like a glove and she spent the next 40 years or so in the industry.

Moya actually has an interesting family background. Her Cousin Fr. Walsh held a high position in the Catholic Church and was the God-driven force behind operation Pedro Pan. She also had a colourful grandfather who suffered a year in an Australian prison for treason. After, he wrote an article about the commonwealth state, in particular THE HOKITIKA ELECTION, while being left in charge of the local newspaper "West Coast Times."

Over her life, she overcame lung cancer and dodged several other health tragedies, as well as accident related events.

Her final victory, was being sent back on 10-20-14. Moya was not revived until she arrived at hospital and she was sent back intact, contrary to what was being stated. D.G.

She passed on Thursday 11-13-14 at Mackenzie Health and Farther Randy Foster of St. Thomas More, Millbrook attended to a final Blessing request for Moya. Moya was a Kind Soul, More Than Fair, Not Greedy and in the later years, was always ready to help a stranger in need - even when she herself was in need.

She will be missed deeply, as will the unkindly timing of her her Black Humour. One of the last things we did together was to take a day pilgrimage to Martyrs Shrine and when I look at the pictures taken, I cannot help wonder if I was being told then. Moya will always be part of me and equally part of me was lost in this race.

Moya is survived by her husband 18+ years, Thomas Harp Jr and as far as I know her brother James Cummins, sister Chris Cummins and Charles Cummins. I was told Angie Cummins passed.

CROFOOT, Robert William 'Bob' Crofoot Obituary | Print |

CROFOOT, Robert William 'Bob' -

Crofoot_RobertBob went to be with the Lord, on November 11, 2014 at the Columbia Forest Long Term Care Home in his 87th year after suffering from Alzheimers. He passed away peacefully with family by his side.

Bob is survived by Lois, his loving wife of 62 years, by his children Bruce (Alice) Crofoot, Ken (Jan) Crofoot, and Linda (Chris) Pernfuss, and by his grandchildren Lisa, Jeffrey, Ben, Lucas, Alvin and Julia.

Bob was born in Brockville. He was the son of a Baptist minister and moved frequently, living in many cities across Canada, including Simcoe, where he met Lois at Simcoe High School. He attended McMaster University and then worked briefly for several companies before joining BP Canada and moving to Montreal.

While with BP he also held positions in Kitchener and Toronto. Bob was a well- liked and respected businessman who approached his work as he did his life, with integrity and Christian values. He made many friendships that lasted a lifetime.

Bob retired in 1988 and after 9 years of retirement in Peterborough, he and Lois moved back to Kitchener/Waterloo. Bob was blessed with a full life and had many interests. He was a skilled athlete playing hockey, baseball, badminton, squash, golf and curling. He greatly enjoyed his annual fishing trips initially with his sons, later with his fishing pals from work and finally with his grandsons.

Bob was an avid golfer, having held memberships at Kanawaki in Montreal, St. Georges in Toronto, Kawartha in Peterborough and Galt Country Club. Bob was active throughout his life in the Baptist Church participating in the choir and in finance and management and for the Baptist Convention where he held positions on the Finance Board. In Kitchener-Waterloo Bob has been a loyal member of Highland Baptist Church.

In the latter part of his life, Bob loved his role as 'Grandpa Cro'. He gained so much pride and joy watching his grandchildren’s achievements in the sports that were so dear to his heart, and in sharing with them story after story about his own life.

Bob’s family praises God for his wonderful life. We would like to thank everyone who has been so caring and helpful as life became more difficult for Bob. We would like to say a special thank you to all of the staff at Columbia Forest who truly cared for Bob throughout his stay with them. You became family to him and we appreciate everything you did.

The complete funeral service will be held on Saturday, November 15th at 11 am at Highland Baptist Church, 135 Highland Rd. W., Kitchener. Cremation to follow.

Donations may be made to Highland Baptist Church or the Alzheimer Society.
