Finally they were able to meet and he eventually asked her father for permission to marry. They moved to Belleville, built their home and ran a general store while Dad worked on the railroad and then for the Hastings County School Board.

Mum and Dad had a love of children and soon filled their home. They fostered many children and ran a Cub Pack for boys with special needs. Mum also worked at the Belleville Hospital as a nurse's aid and in later years was a Home Care Worker.

After retirement they spent their winters in Florida and summers in Dundalk. Owen Sound became their home for a few years and then Oakville for a few, eventually returning to Owen Sound two years ago.

VICKERS, Brady Thomas -

Vickers_BradyMarch 21, 1994 - February 26, 2015

Brady left this world much too early, just shy of his 21st birthday.

He was in Seoul, excited to have embarked on a semester abroad as an exchange student and was looking forward to earning a degree in Commerce at Dalhousie University.

He also nurtured a passion for astronomy. He was a kind, thoughtful and sensitive young man with a bright mind and a wonderful sense of humour. His presence was a joy and his absence leaves a giant hole in the hearts of his family and friends.

He saw the best in everyone and his light will inspire and carry on through the many lives he touched. Brady was deeply loved and will be forever missed by his mother Pheona Wright and his father Mark Vickers, along with sisters Haley and Izzy and brothers Jake and Adam. Brady was blessed with two loving step-fathers in Richard Campbell and Tim Godsall and will be sadly missed by step- mother Kirsten Vickers.

His beloved girlfriend Ellie Hynes was a light in his life and his extended group of devoted friends were a source of happiness and inspiration.

Brady was the treasured grandson of Richard and Dianne Wright and the late Fred and Pauline Vickers. He was adored by many aunts and uncles and 19 cousins, including aunt Danielle (Gigi) Vickers-Tjalsma and uncle Rimmer Tjalsma (parents of Matthew, Ryan and Emalie), Terie Vickers-Craig and Martin Craig (Mackenzie, Jessie, Duncan and Alex), Tom and Vickie Vickers (Mark, Erika, Abbey, Molly and Krissy), Marten and Averill Wright (Ainsley, Jada and Mackenzie), Matthew Wright, Moira Wright and Joseph Wilson (Max and Henry) and Sarah and Michael Merriman (Keara and Keagan).

Family and friends will be gathering at Markland Wood Golf Club, 245 Markland Drive, Etobicoke, on Saturday, April 25, 2015 from 5 - 8 p.m.

Donations in Brady's honour can be made to The Brady Vickers Bursary, care of Dalhousie University, Office of External Relations, PO Box 15000, Halifax NS, B3H 4R2 or contact at 902-494-6862.
