DURHAM, Warren Liddell Durham - Obituary | Print |

DURHAM, Warren Liddell -

December 4, 1921 - October 22, 2014

After a long, full and wonderful life, Warren passed away at the age of 92 following a lengthy illness.

He was predeceased by his mother Florence Jamieson, father Frederick Durham and sister Constance.

He is survived by his beloved wife Cathy Lee Farley (Waterloo), his four children (with ex-wife Elizabeth Durham): Jerry Durham, Susan Gibbons (Terry), Nancy Durham (Bill), Cathy Shoebridge (Glenn). Warren was loved by his six grandchildren: Nicola, Shawn, Sarah, Jennifer, Rebecca and Jessica, as well as six great- grandchildren: Amber, Joel, Natalie, Riley, Cotter and Liam. Warren is also survived by his dearly loved cousin Helen Hale (California).

In his youth, Warren was a swimming champion and head lifeguard on the Toronto waterfront - and that love of water eventually led him to become a keen sailor. He served during WWII as an RCAF flight instructor, after which he became a lawyer, a director of legal aid in Oakville and a respected Ontario Provincial Court judge.

He shared with all who knew him so many of his values and gifts: a delightful sense of humour, passionate belief in truth and honesty, love of nature, sense of adventure, support for the underdog, respect for our fellow man and a sense of justice for all.

We wish to thank the staff of the Leisureworld Care Centre in Elmira who gave Warren and his family tremendous care, support and kindness throughout his stay.

Donations may be made to the Alzheimer Society of Canada.

BLACKWOOD, John (Jay) William Blackwood - Obituary | Print |

BLACKWOOD, John (Jay) William -

Jay, age 65, passed away suddenly of cardiovascular disease at his home in Toronto.

He was the son of Dr. John and Margaret Blackwood (both deceased) of Woodstock, Ontario.

Jay is survived by siblings Bob (Peter Gribble), Wendy (Davide Bertoli), Marnie (Don Grainger) Susie (Barrie Hutchinson), Doug and Andy (Cara Bayly), plus his niece Clare Blackwood and nephews Calder, Jim and George Hutchinson, and Bryn Blackwood. Jay had many cousins, aunts and uncles who shared his sense of humour.

He loved cottage family reunions and the Bertoli family annual sausage-fest, where food, wine and laughter were prolific. He leaves good friends in his Toronto St. Clair neighbourhood and in Alberta where he was a TV sportscaster and race announcer at the Stampede Park Raceway.

Jay had an encyclopaedic memory for sports trivia and in his younger years excelled in baseball and hockey. He was an avid and often devious card and game player.

Jay will especially be missed by his dear friends Robert Salnek, Suzanne Lejeune and their children. A hearty shout-out goes to George, Marley and Henry, 4-legged friends who gave Jay so many chuckles.

The family sincerely thanks Alix and Jim Kuhn for their compassion and assistance.
