VAISEY, Doug Vaisey Obituary | Print |

VAISEY, Doug -    "Express Condolences"

(January 15, 1920 - November 23, 2014)

Born and raised in Toronto, Doug Vaisey was the son of Albert George and Alice Jane (nee Harrison) Vaisey. Following schooling in commercial arts (punctuated by sports and music), he joined the Toronto Star in its editorial room.

When World War broke out, he enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force and spent a good part of his time in England with the Judge Advocate General's division as a court reporter. During that service, he met, wooed and wed Myrtle Eileen Boreham, a Peterborough girl. After VE Day, they returned to this city to work first for the Peterborough Examiner. Doug then worked for the county court system as court reporter and secretary to local county court judges, and later as an administration of justice officer.

When he retired, Doug jumped with both feet into studies at Trent University and into travel, with summers spent in Paignton and other areas in South England. In his early years in Peterborough, he was active in youth work ("It is better to build boys than to mend men."). Later life saw him active in church work, community action, and volunteer work with school libraries, children's breakfast programs, and shelters for the dispossessed.

Doug Vaisey was predeceased by his parents (Albert and Alice) and by his elder brother, Stuart. He is survived by his sister, Eleanor ("Skip") Stiles of Edmonton, and by brother William ("Bill"), recently of Peterborough. His two sons, Doug Vaisey jr. (Cynthia) and Bob Taylor-Vaisey (Anne), granddaughter Miranda (Joe), grandsons Brad, Bryce and Nick, and great-granddaughter Savannah will miss the football bets, the witty anecdotes, and his enthusiasm for their achievements and travels.

The family wishes to thank Doug's many friends, with whom he enjoyed sports, the out-of-doors, piquant observations on politics and the exploration of faith. Gratitude is also due to Dr. David Van Loon and to the staff at Royal Gardens and Empress Gardens who took on his care following his near-death encounter with acute diabetes and his later recovery. We put too little emphasis nowadays on caring professionalism, but the Gardens of Peterborough kept him warm, safe and comfortable.

There will be a visitation at   COMSTOCK FUNERAL HOME & CREMATION CENTRE, 356 Rubidge Street, Peterborough on Wednesday, November 26th, between 4:00 and 7:00 p.m.

A memorial service will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 27th at Trinity United Church, 360 Reid Street, Peterborough.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Habitat for Humanity, Trinity United Church or to the charity of your choosing.

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.
