MONTGOMERY, (Albert) Scott -

Montgomery_ScottIn his 101st year, (Albert) Scott Montgomery left this world peacefully on November 23, 2014 in Peterborough, Ontario.

He lives on in the memories of his family and friends.

Predeceased by his loving wife of 62 years Molly, (nee Dorland), his sister, Eunice Bell, and his dear friend, Peggy O’Brien.

He is the loving father of Eleanor Stillman (Fowler), Terry Montgomery (Florence Guy), Jim Montgomery (Catherine) and Rose Montgomery-Whicher (Ian).

As a grandfather who never forgot a birthday, and who always took an interest in each of their lives, he will be missed by Terry (Adriana), Anne (Jeremy), David (Nicole), Anthony (Yawen), Madeleine (Mike), Justine (Jesse), Thomas, Sophia and Christopher. He will also be missed by his great grandchildren: Mary, Rodrigo, Priscilla, Owen and Emma as well as his nieces and nephews.

Scott grew up in Toronto when cars shared the road with horses and airplanes were uncommon. He attended St. Andrew’s College in Aurora and the University of Western Ontario. He had a successful career in the insurance business. After graduation, he joined his father at A.H. Montgomery and Co. where he later assumed ownership. When the company was merged with Lukis Stewart, a large UK firm, he became a director.

During WWII Scott worked to support international relief with the Save the Children Fund, a commitment he maintained throughout his life. In retirement Scott and Molly spent happy days entertaining family as well as gardening at their summer home in Cape Cod. Their travels included England, Ireland and Switzerland. In October, the family gathered with him for a grand celebration of his 100th birthday.

On Friday, November 28 at 1:00 p.m. a Memorial Service will be held at the Wellington United Church, Wellington, ON (where Molly is buried). A reception at the church will follow the graveside farewell.

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.
