Passed away on Friday, January 30, 2015, in his 79th year after a short battle with cancer.
Loving husband of Joan for almost 55 years. Devoted father of Cameron (Carol) of Ottawa, Jeffrey (Karen) of Aurora and David (Jennifer) of Port Perry. Proud Grandpa of Ryan, Lindsey and Lauren; Luke and Christie; and Benjamin and Hannah. Caring brother of Marilyn of Peterborough.
Ron was a kind and generous gentleman who treasured family and friends. An avid outdoorsman, he spent countless hours hunting, fishing and sitting around his beloved Lodge in Quebec, telling stories and sharing memories and laughs. There he fostered relationships that have endured over six decades. His “brothers” at Club Tonomo were a source of great pride and his many “nieces” and “nephews” were the beneficiaries of his wisdom and willingness to be a teacher and role model. He was loved for his warm smile and jovial laugh.
A father of three athletic boys, Ron was called upon to be a coach, fan and chauffeur. When he was blessed with grandchildren, he and Joan never flinched at the opportunity to drive to Ottawa, Kingston, Port Perry, Aurora and points in between and beyond for games, graduations, recitals or any other occasion where he could share in celebrating the accomplishments of his family.
In recent years, Ron travelled each fall to Northern Ontario and was invested into the brotherhood of the Purdom Pirates, where he treasured the new friendships.
Ron’s family wishes to thank Dr. Lindsay, Dr. Beamish and the extraordinary nurses in the palliative care unit of the Peterborough Regional Health Centre for their professionalism, sensitivity and the genuine caring we all received during our time with you. Thanks also to the many friends and neighbours who have supported our family during Ron’s illness and after his passing. We are humbled and grateful.
For those wishing to honour Ron’s legacy, the family would appreciate donations to a children’s charity of your choice.
Respecting Ron’s wishes, a graveside memorial service, interment and reception will be held at a later date. Arrangements out of Peterborough.

Nan died peacefully at Peterborough Regional Health Centre on January 24, 2015 in her 95th year.
Beloved wife of the late Harvey N. Seabrooke and loving mother of Paul and his partner Pamela Hooke, and Peter and his partner Julie Cullen.
Nan was a proud grandmother of Kailey, Paige and Spencer Seabrooke, all of B.C. She is predeceased by her parents Ella Jean and William M. Manbeck, her step-father Michael Coughlin and her siblings, William, Thelma, Alice, June and Jackie Manbeck. She is survived by her brother Wallace (Bus) Manbeck and many nieces and nephews including Judy Stephens, Janet Caravaggio, Reg and Cheryl Brown, Joel Manbeck, Elizabeth Windsor, Lynn Boyce, Christopher, Greg and Kimberly Manbeck, and Danny Seabrooke. Nan is also survived by her brother-in-law, Grant Seabrooke. Nan will be fondly remembered by the Baschuk family, the Hogan family and her friend, Mark (Stewy) Stewart of North Vancouver. She was born in Reading, Pennsylvania and moved to Peterborough, Ontario when she was about 7.
During the Second World War, Nan moved to Halifax to be closer to her brother Bill who was stationed there. After the war she returned to Peterborough where she married Harvey and raised their family.
Nan enjoyed walking and volunteering - for years she gave her time and knitting to the Peterborough Civic Hospital Auxiliary and was known for the baby clothes that she knit for Peterborough newborns. She also devoted time to the Knox United Church Cub Scout troop on their overnight camping trips. Nan spent summers at her beloved cottage on Buckhorn Lake where she loved gardening and swimming (preferably in cold water). She and Harvey wintered in Florida in their retirement years and after Harvey died, Nan happily made a permanent move to Buckhorn Lake for the last 10 years of her life.
The family gratefully thanks Dr. Ragaz and the professional and caring team at the Palliative Unit of PRHC and those that helped care for Nan in her home at the lake over the last couple of months.
