Brent Abbott - Biography


Linda and I spent 37 years with the CF retiring in 1997. That left me with many positives and the conviction that I had the support and assistance of several friends.Those years were marked with challenges, demanding emotional stress, and great satisfaction.I served in a generous mix of staff and line positions with the airforce,primarily in air transport ( a force majeure of the Trudeau defence policy).Our posting included Moose Jaws (2), Edmonton(2),Trenton (2), Ottawa (3), Toronto(2), Kingston, Sardinia, and Germany with a side tour in Egypt unaccompanied.

The constant in the process was my family.Linda took a vicarious interest in the decision process of the CF.As a function of my frequent absences flying with Air Transport, we rounded out our family with five children by 1974. My family was supportive in all these activities and prospered as a consequence of Linda’s influence because I was absent for many significant events. Events such as my daughter, Kim’s grad from U of A, Peter and Craig’s glider and power wings presentations with Air Cadets, Craig’s graduation from RMC and so on.I did attend some of the significant events, Kim and Greg’s wedding in Edmonton , Peter’s wings ceremony in Moose Jaw,and his winning the bombing award on the CF18 course in Cold Lake; Craig’s graduation from the Air Weapons course as top student, David’s grad in Aeronautical engineering, and Micheal’s graduation from Carleton at the top of the Dean’s list for Accounting. God knows how they succeeded but for that I am thankful.Between them they have given us 11 grandchildren geographically dispersed between Edmonton, Port Elgin, Ottawa, Colorado Springs, Montreal and UAE.

While five children (Kim, Peter, Craig, David and Mike) present many challenges, there were and are a number of rewards. For our last tour in Geilenkirken Germany, our youngest were in university. That should have allowed us significant travel opportunities, but the war in the Adriatic tended to have an overriding influence on my activity. Son David took up triathlon and while representing Canada in the Canary Islands, won a wife who is from Belgium. We did enjoy Europe and have been back several times.

I was presented with the option of retirement or participating actively in the downsizing of the air transport operations, and elected to take my leave of the CF in Edmonton (an Army Base!!). Given that the recession had taken hold, my initial plans vapourized. While Linda was back in Europe on a visit, I took a job. I informed her that the new position was in a great tourist area, several languages were spoken and the people were very welcoming, in La Ronge Sask.The position was a true educational experience to inform me on how others managed a successful civilian flying career. It was a busy year and while Saskatchewan was very generous to me, I returned to Edmonton to accept a position which involved a suitable balance of travel ( mostly to NWT and Yukon) and active engagement with the technological challenges of aviation which I had missed due to administration commitments. I keep current on the Beech C90 and 737.

I have maintained a constant commitment to volunteer positions and not-for-profit activities. Linda and I have enjoyed the opportunity to travel for visits with family and for several cruises. We are enjoying the years and if you are in Edmonton, you are welcome.

John Adams - Biography


After returning to Canada from Oxford in 1967, I spent 28 years in the Canadian Military Engineers. I retired from the Canadian Forces in 1995 but remained with the Department of National Defence as Assistant Deputy Minister, Infrastructure and Environment until 1998.

Now on a different tack, I am Commissioner of the Canadian Coast Guard within the Department of Fisheries and Oceans.

Wally, our three children, their spouses and our four grandchildren (all under six) continue to flourish. Between work, family, cycling and hockey life is a slice.

Doug Armstrong - Biography


I was having so much fun I stayed in the Army 24 years. I met my current wife (and only wife) in our fourth year and we have 2 girls, one an accountant with White Rose Nurseries in Markham and one an engineer with Sun Microsystems in California. We also have one grand daughter. We have lived in many places, our current abode being Newmarket north of Toronto.

While in the military, I saw lots of time in Germany and England and was fortunate to get a Masters in Electrical Engineering at the US Naval Post Graduate School in California. I got out of the military in 1985 and joined Spar Aerospace, the maker of the Shuttle CanadaArm. I have been with them ever since. Their name has changed to Macdonald Dettiwiler but they still do space robotics. I have been the Manager of Electrical Engineering for the last three years. Probably my fantastic education at RMC got me the job.

Stephen J. Arnold - Biography


After graduation, I spent four years with the regular navy including one posting as a watch-keeping Supply Officer on HMCS Columbia. Four more years with the naval reserves included one year as A/CO of HMCS Cataraqui in Kingston. I have my CD.

I'm in Kingston because of my appointment as Professor, School of Business, Queen's University. I've been here since 1974 when I completed my PhD at the University of Toronto. I teach marketing strategy and retail management to BCom students. I also teach research methodology to MSc and PhD candidates.

Wife Carynne is responsible for Kingston Literacy and daughter Caroline pursues her carpentry craft. Caroline earned a Queen's BA and an Algonquin College Diploma in heritage carpentry. Son Paul just graduated from U of T with a BMus in composition. He enjoys student life, however, and hopes to continue as a graduate student.

I fight a losing battle with girth even though I row on Collins Bay in the summer and speed skate with the Kingston Striders during the winter. I do enjoy my pint.

Vil Auns - Biography (Sept 2015)


Vil was born in Riga, Latvia on 15 June 1943, left with his family during the war in 1944 and lived in Sweden till 1948, then Ireland till the summer of 1949. Vil and his family finally arrived at Pier 21 in Halifax, N.S. on 9 Aug 1949 on the MS ACQUITANIA. They finally settled in Montreal, P.Q. where he grew to puberty.  He and his family became Canadian Citizens in 1952.

Vil joined the Royal Canadian Navy in September 1960 and attended the College Militaire Royal de St. Jean from September 1960 till the summer of 1963. He received his commission as Sub-Lieutenant in May 1965, graduating from the Royal Military College of Canada with a Bachelor of Engineering degree in Electrical Engineering.

This was followed by the required training to qualify for operational watch-keeping duties at sea in HMCS QU'APPELLE and HMCS YUKON. Vil then attended the TENTH LONG WEAPONS COURSE in 1968, followed by Department Head and Weapons Officer duties in HMCS NIPIGON and HMCS KOOTENAY, from Feb 1969 to Mar 1973. During this period, whilst on watch, Vil controlled the operations of these ships at sea in numerous national and international exercises. In addition, during February 1972, Vil received his official Command Qualification to Command Canadian surface warships.

In 1974 he was promoted to LCDR and was selected to attend the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, graduating Dec 1976 with a Master of Science in Engineering Acoustics. Vil then assumed the duties of Executive Officer in HMCS ASSINIBOINE until his posting to the Canadian Forces National Defence Headquarters in Feb 1979. Promoted to Commander in January 1980, Vil assumed the duties of Section Head, Surface Ship Weapon Systems and Sensors Requirements until June 1982, being responsible for defining their requirements and staffing their acquisition.

He was then selected to attend the U.S. Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island, graduating in Jun 1983. This was a graduate level curriculum on policy, operations and management. The intent was not only to learn on global issues but also to establish personal networking with navies from the world. In Vil`s case it was 35 navies. He still stays in touch with many of his old classmates today.

Vil assumed command of HMCS FRASER from Dec 1983 until Aug 1985 and truly enjoyed being with a great ship`s company in various exercises at sea from the North Sea to the southern Caribbean.

This was followed by a posting to the position of Vice-Commandant of the Canadian Forces Fleet School in Halifax, Nova Scotia. In this capacity he administrated and directed operations of an organization of 600 staff and the average student population of 1400.

In August 1988, Vil joined the Canadian Patrol Frigate (CPF) Project as the Operational Requirements Manager (ORM) for six years. He provided the CPF project office a Command perspective and determined/clarified operational priorities during contractor negotiations. Due to his extensive Combat System experience and knowledge, his major activity became to be personally involved to ensure that the CPF Combat Systems (CS) were in fact developed in accordance with the formal/contracted requirements. In 1992 he also assumed the duties of Senior Trials Director (STD) of the CPF CS Trials Program - overseeing all of the warfighting weapon and sensor Trials Directors, and personally ensuring that the CS was in fact properly integrated and correctly controlled by the CPF Command and Control System (CCS).

Vil supervised the development of the major CS trials and their data collection plans; and directed those trial activities. He then led the PMO CPF technical deliberations to the solutions of trials arisings.

Vil also instituted and implemented the HALIFAX Class Weapon Certification program, which verified that each commissioned HALIFAX Class frigate and their Commissioning crew were trained and ready in all respects - prior to embarking and using live missiles and munitions for their trials program. He was given, by the Commander, Maritime Command, the exclusive Certification Authority for all CPFs/HALIFAX Class frigates - both those under the PMO CPF trials program and those that had become operational within Maritime Command.

In parallel, Vil initiated the development, monitored that development and then approved the initial HALIFAX Class Above Water CS Drill Procedures, which were used during the Trials program – and then were formally passed on to the Canadian Navy for operational use.

Leaving the CPF Project Office in 1994, Vil was posted to NDHQ as the Section Head in charge of Business Planning for DND’s Department Information Services Organization (DISO) and was also in charge of staffing DND’s Information Management Strategic Plan.  

Vil retired from the RCN on 4 April 1995.

Two weeks later Vil joined Lockheed Martin Canada (then Unisys GSG) for his next 16 years of work that primarily focused on our Canadian Navy.

Vil was primarily employed as the Senior Advisor, Naval Combat Systems since joining Lockheed Martin Canada (LM Canada) in the Spring of 1995.

He was directly involved with DND/Canadian Navy engineers/operators to: plan for the future Combat Systems for the Canadian Navy; and lead the integration of the new Evolved SEASPARROW Missile (ESSM) into the HALIFAX Class CS. 

Vil developed during1997 to 2000, for the Canadian Navy, a Blueprint/Functional Model that detailed the required Functions of a modern Canadian Naval CS, along with its CCS and Information Management System (IMS). It provided descriptions of the perceived functionalities of the required CS Functions, along with the required inputs and output of each of the Functions. The operational requirements that are supported by the proposed CS were provided as a Requirements List.

During 2000 to 2009, Vil primarily worked as the Senior System Engineer for the new advanced Vertical Launch Evolved SEASPARROW Missile (VLESSM) System integration into the HALIFAX Class frigates of the Canadian Navy.  In that capacity he:

·         led the development of the Performance and Compatibility Requirements (P&CR) Document (Requirements Document) for the VLESSM System and the project’s  Master Test Plan.

·         attended numerous national and international meetings with the DND Project Manager (PM)  ESSM as the VLESSM System expert.  He provided guidance to DND/Navy staff on HALIFAX Class CS related matters and provided overall VLESSM System insight to the LM Canada integration team.

·         provided system engineering support to the DND PM ESSM with respect to the integration of the Mk 73 Mod 3 CWI Solid State Transmitter (SSTX) into the HFX Class CS. This included in leading the LM Canada team to develop the SSTX Trials Plan and Procedures that were executed for the acceptance of the SSTX into the Fleet.

·         was very involved with Raytheon IDS engineers and the Canadian Navy/NDHQ engineers to plan the way ahead for the implementation and particularly the testing requirements of the Uplink capability (updating the ESSM in flight to the engaged target) for the ESSM fitted HFX Class frigates.

Vil retired from LM Canada 2 June 2011.

On a Personal Note

I met my bride, Faye, in Halifax and we were married in 1968. We were blessed with two children: Adrienne Lisa and Daniel Richard.

Adrienne married a treasure – Jason Vienneau – and they have been blessed with a wonderful little red-head daughter, Addison, who seems to know everything. Addison will be eight years old this fall. They live in Ottawa.

Dan married a sweetheart, Michelle Morrice, and they have been blessed with two sons: Nick and Dylan. Nick is eleven years old and Dylan is nine years old. Dan and Michelle seem to be living in their cars, driving the boys to rinks and soccer fields all over the Ottawa region. They also live in Ottawa.

Faye worked as a Registered Nurse for many years – when not taking the time off to properly raise our children. Her last ten years of employment was as a Medical Adjudicator for the Canadian Government – assessing the veracity of claims for government Medical Pensions.

Faye and I are both truly retired now. We downsized from our Ottawa home and in Dec 2013 have moved to a new condominium in Brockville, the Tall Ships Landing, which overlooks the St. Lawrence River and the 1000 Islands. Life goes on peacefully: we volunteer at stuff; we bike along the 1000 Island Parkway and yes, have an occasional brew from time to time.

We are both thankful to the Big Guy up there, for providing us the health to enjoy all of the above.

Life is great!!

John Bardsley - Biography (Nov 2018)


I was born in St. Catharines, Ontario, July 27th, 1942. My wife, Anne, a retired military Nursing Officer and Flight Nurse, and I live in Sidney, BC. I am the proud father of two sons, Jeff (and wife Angela) in Ottawa, and Paul who has two sons, Jordan and Tye, living in Brisbane, Australia.

My early education took place in St. Catharines ending with grade 13 at the Collegiate in 1961. During high school I was active in the Army Cadets from 1956 to 1961 and was a member of the rifle team shooting under DCRA rules. In 1960 I did summer training with the Lincoln and Welland Regiment. After graduation from Grade 13 I attended RMC from 1961 to 1963.

After leaving RMC in 1963 I was posted to the RCASC School in Camp Borden and was the Physical Education Officer before finishing my officer training with the OCP programme. I was then posted to the Experimental Brigade Service Battalion in Camp Gagetown, NB where I took my Lt. to Capt exams. Subsequently I was posted to 4 Transport Company in Montreal.

I left the Service in 1966 and enrolled at Queen’s University in Kingston and while there belonged to the Prince of Wales’s Own Regiment from 1967 to 1971. My original plan was to become a high school physical education teacher, but in order to do so I had to take biology., and was smitten. As a result my BA in 1967 led to a MSc in biology in 1969, and a PhD in parasitology. Half way through the latter I was encouraged to go into Medicine by the Medical Officer of the PWOR, Dr. Dawson Einarson, who was also the Admission’s Officer of the Queen’s Medical School. Due to overlapping courses between my graduate studies and medicine I was admitted to second year medicine in 1971 and applied for MOTP and was accepted. I obtained a MD in 1974. (During my medical studies I managed to finish my PhD in 1972. The challenge of juggling graduate studies, medical school and being a father proved to be one of the busiest, yet most enjoyable and rewarding times of my life). I finished my initial medical training with an Internship at KGH and the Hotel Dieu in 1974-74

After finishing a straight surgical internship in 1975 I was posted to CFB Cold Lake as a MO. While there I did Flight Surgeon training at DCIEM in Downsview. While at Cold Lake I completed my Private Pilot’s Licence. After Cold Lake I was posted to the Directorate of Preventive Medicine in Ottawa as the Co-ordinating Officer of the Life Quality Improvement Programme. While there I took the governmental French training and was certified bilingual. After DPM I was posted as the Base Medical Officer to CFB Comox. After 2 years in Comox I was selected for specialty training in Public Health and Occupational Medicine at UBC, graduating with a MSc in Health Administration and, after exams, qualifying for Fellowship in the Royal College of Physicians of Canada. Following that I was posted for a second tour in DPM as Staff Officer responsible for the CF Drug and Alcohol Programme. I attended summer school at Rutger’s University and received a certificate in Addictions. My final posting was to NDMC as the Staff Physician and Director of both the Emergency Room and Outpatients’ Departments.

After retirement I applied for, and accepted a position as a Medical Health Officer with the Vancouver Health Department. At that time I enrolled in the naval reserve serving as a MO with HMCS Discovery in Vancouver. While with the City, the Workers’ Compensation Board (now, Work Safe BC) recruited me as the Director of the Rehabilitation Centre at WCB headquarters in Richmond. I served as the Director for two years and took an opening as a Medical Advisor at the branch office in Victoria where Anne and I wished to retire. We bought a house in North Saanich and eventually ended up in Sidney where we still live. We are both happily retired since the turn of the century.

My pastimes include target shooting with the North Saanich Rod and Gun Club, collecting militaria, keeping abreast of local, national and international politics, and staying as fit and healthy as possible. I am a Life Member of the BC Aviation Museum and the RMC Club. My wife and I are Rotarians and are very active in other charitable causes.

Reg Bird - Biography


I left the military in 1968 after serving three years in the frozen north of Alberta at Cold Lake weapons test range. (Fortunately our country wasn't attacked during that time!) I next took a job with "ednomton telephones in Edmonton (still the frozen north) becoming President in 1985. After they realized what they had done, I was quickly shipped off to Winnipeg (still the frozen north) to become CEO of MTS, the Manitoba Telephone System.

I left MTS in 1990 to take a position with Northern Telecom, now Nortel Networks, back in Edmonton (still the frozen north) as Vice President for Canada West selling equipment to some of the very companies I ran so they could beat up on each other in the new competitive telecom environment.

Today, Susan and I have escaped the frozen north and I am President of Nortel Networks for Asia South Pacific with homes in both Sydney, Australia and Singapore.

Alex Bovey - Biography


I really enjoyed CMR but, unfortunately, let a couple of academic subjects force me back to civy street before I could "See the World"!

I had been looking forward to following in the footsteps of my father who was an NO and of my grandfather who had been Commandant of the RMC. I would not have enjoyed the 'Jolly Green'. I am still very proud to been Ex-Cadet.

I joined the Bank of Montreal in Montreal and worked for them in the Toronto area for several years. From there I was hired to open an industrial finance company office in Vancouver. When they folded, I elected to stay in 'God's country' and have been here ever since. For many years, I was in all aspects of the car dealership business. From that I evolved with my love of computers and their capabilities to the IT sector where I have my own company that provides consulting here and abroad.

Since 1972, I have been involved in politics at all levels and for a while in the late eighties and early 90's, I was an assistant to a federal minister. Locally, I was the Campaign Manager for a previous Mayor for 16 years. Currently, I have been President of the group representing the majority of city council (Richmond NPA) since 1995.

While I like my tech toys, my main love is sailing. I have a 37' ketch, Sea Swallow, which provides my greatest relaxation, especially in the spectacular cruising waters that we have here.

In 1966 I married Angela, who hails from Worcestershire, at the Cathedral in Kingston. We have two daughters. One, an Engineer with IBM, is married to a Dutchman and is also living nearby. The other is at UVic in Victoria studying geography and anthropology.

Mike Braham - Biography (2018)


Immediately after graduation I joined HMCS GATINEAU in Halifax and then headed to the UK for submarine training. Following intensive training with the Royal Navy and with apparent logic I was sent to Esquimalt to serve in Canada's US-built submarine, HMCS GRILSE.  It soon became apparent to that outstanding band of professionals in the Canadian submarine service that I was not of the "right stuff" and I was tactfully sent off to do logistcs training in CFB Borden. At the time it was a devastating disappointment that turned out to be the turning point in my naval career.

Following training I returned to Esquimalt as Supply Officer of HMCS QU'APPELLE, followed two years later by an exchange posting to the USN Supply Centre in Oakland, CA.  Now firmly deskbound, a series of interesting an non-naval postings followed including ammunition  and Leopard tank parts procurement; a study on Other Ranks trades that introduced significant career changes that continue to exist today; a tour at NATO Headquarters; and, finally a posting as the first non-army Director of Logistics Operations.

I retired as a Captain (N) in 1987 and went on to spend 12 years with Emergency Preparedness Canada as a Director responsible for national and international emergency planning. A very interesting time with some great people - lots of good ideas but not enough resources to make an impact. A far cry from the huge Department that replaced EPC - no ideas and tons of resources.

On that bitter note I moved back to the DND Mother House in 1999 as Director General Safety where I remained until 30 Sep 08 when I officially retired from public life.

All that of course is fluff compared to my real achievements which have been to stay married to Janet all this time and to raise two great kids - Wendy, a teacher in Mission, BC and Stephen, currently a Director Parks Canada. Between them, they have so far produced three beautiful grandchildren.

In retirement I spend three days a week giving tours at the Diefenbunker Cold War Museum and another day at the War Museum helping out with the Friends of the Canadian War Museum’s used book room. Some time is also spent putting together the periodic class newsletter that has allowed me to re-connect with the class. The rest of the time has been spent on a number of interesting cruises; quality time with the grandkids; and, after having both knees replaced, getting back on to the golf course.

George Brown - Biography (2005)

After graduation, I spent a few (20 some) years in the Navy, but spent very little of that time in ships. I worked in technical and staff jobs in various Navy towns like Halifax and Victoria, and also spent some time in other non-Navy places like El Paso where I attended a System Engineering course given by the US Army. I went back to RMC in 1973 for an M.Eng degree in Electrical Engineering (I think they were hard up for students that year). After that, I spent my remaining time in various jobs at NDHQ, and attended the RN Staff College at Greenwich, England.

I left the Navy (by now the CF) in 82, but continued to work as a civilian engineer in the Maritime Engineering Division at NDHQ until 98. At that time I left Canada to move to Brussels where I took up my present job as a Project Manager for a NATO project called FORACS (it's a mouth-numbing acronym dealing with ship's test ranges). When I left for Brussels, my family remained in Ottawa and unfortunately my wife, Marnie, was tragically killed in a traffic accident later that year. 

Later, I met Beatrice Cardon from Flanders and we were married in 2002. We live in the Brussels area. My 2 children and 3 grandchildren live in the Ottawa area. My son Michael is a Chartered Accountant, living in Kanata with his wife and 2 daughters. My daughter Alison is a Pharmacist, and lives in Orleans with her husband and 1 son (with 1 more on the way :). We visit as often as we can.

I regret that I could not get to the big 40th reunion, but look forward to the 50th (in only 6 years). By then I should be retired, I hope!

Ernie Cable - Biography (Aug 2000)

After graduation from RMC I trained as a navigator and flew operationally on the Argus maritime patrol aircraft with 404 and 449 Squadrons in Greenwood NS. Following the year long Aerospace Systems Course in Winnipeg I served a three year exchange posting at the Naval Air Development Center in Warminster PA. where I was involved with the design and flight testing of a new computer system for the U.S. Navy's P-3C Orion aircraft. After return to Canada and Staff College I was able to put my U.S.Navy experience to good use in the Ottawa Program Management Office for the Air Force's new Aurora maritime patrol aircraft. Then back to Greenwood NS as the C.O. of 405, the first operational Aurora squadron, followed by a tour as the Base Operations Officer. From this point in my career I was confined to flying a mahogany bomber as Deputy Chiefs of Staff for Personnel and Operations in Trenton ON and Halifax NS respectively. My last posting was as Deputy Commander Maritime Air Group also in Halifax where I retired from the Air Force in 1995.
 
Carol and I built our retirement home in East Lawrencetown NS (30 minutes from downtown Halifax) on a two acre lot overlooking the ocean. Our two daughters Kim and Treena graduated from Queens and Dalhousie respectively and along with their spouses are doing well in their careers. I currently serve on the Board of Directors for the Shearwater Aviation Museum and double as the museum's historian. As a sometime free lance writer I have had numerous articles published on aviation and defence issues.

Roger Chiasson - Biography

Attended pre-fleet courses prior to going to sea in '66; acquired destroyer driver's licence (Bridge Watchkeeping Ticket) and then transferred to another ship, where I acquired the Engineering equivalent. I have remained a steam plumber ever since, having served as Engineering Officer of 2 ships. Attended Staff College, and for my sins taught at Staff School, followed by 2 years as nursemaid for fledgeling MAREs under training. The rest of my 38 years and 1 week in uniform (only surpassed by Bill Leach?) was spent in ship repair and construction-related jobs, in commercial shipyards, NDHQ, and as CO of the East Coast Dockyard, where I acquired religion and led a TQM/culture-change initiative. Then, the icing on the cake (other than a
year basking on the National Defence College Course) (after a mind-numbing year trying to learn the language) was 3 years in Tokyo as the CF Attaché. If there is water in the ocean, we sort of enjoyed that posting!!!

My plan to work part time in TQM making lots of money failed, and I am now working full-time for a small consulting company trying to build up a small nestegg to supplement the chelsea pension. As living proof that I have not grown up yet, I tried to cycle across Canada last summer (only completed about 60%), and I bought a red Miata.

Bonnie, a graduate nutritionist, and I are in our 34th year. Son Craig is here in Ottawa, married to the perfect daughter-in-law, working on building up his flying hours and trying to find a flying job, while (single) daughter Jennifer is a library assistant for a law firm in Halifax.

Gerry Davies - Biography (2009) (from E-Veritas)

I am currently living in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario in a house that Shirley and I bought in 1972. We have two kids, Michael and Victoria, both who work for the Algoma District school board, and two grandchildren, Isaiah and Elizabeth.

After graduation in 1965 I married Shirley, a KGH nurse, and spent the next three and a half years in Kingston. During that time a had three positions: Commanding Officer 207 Workshop RCEME, maintenance officer for the Signals Regiment, and lecturer in the Physics Department at RMC while I completed my graduate work in Electrical Engineering. Following graduation I spend a year in Petawawa as part of the Service Battalion. During my time at RMC I realized that I enjoyed teaching, and in the summer of 1970 I left the military to go to work at the Sault Ste. Marie campus of Cambrian College, which later became Sault College. I stayed at Sault College from 1970 until 1996 when I retired. During that time I had a number of enjoyable positions. I was part of the Electrical/Electronics department and designed and became coordinator of the Computer Engineering program. I also spent three years as Executive Director of Information Technology at the college. During that time I also coached the Sault Y Dolphins swim team until two years ago, and taught swimming and lifesaving at the Y. I played soccer in the local men’s league until I was about 45 and then coached for a number of years before I became worn out.

While I was employed at Sault college I taught as a sessional faculty member at Algoma University College, which was an affiliate campus of Laurentian University. I began my teaching there in 1974, and in 1999 I was hired as a full time faculty member in the Computer Science Department, where I am presently still serving. During my time at Algoma, I spent three years in Senior Management as Director of Computing Services before returning to the classroom. I also coached the men’s indoor soccer team and the women’s indoor team for a year.

Shirley has retired from her nursing position at one of the Tendercare Nursing homes, but I will continue to teach as long as I continue to have fun. So far that hasn’t happened. I play golf in the Ontario Lottery Corporation League in the summer, and in the pool league in the winter at the local pool hall.

Rick Johnson - Biography (Feb 2013)

After graduation from RMC I completed nav training in Winnipeg and was then posted to 436 Sqn in Ottawa, where I spent four and a half years travelling the world in the cockpit of a C130. That was followed by a stint at ATGHQ in Trenton, and a year at the Aerospace Systems Course (another bitterly cold winter in Winnipeg), after which I was posted back to Ottawa, this time to the Directorate of Air Requirements.

After 3 years in pergutory I returned to 436 Squadron (now in Trenton) for a refresher tour before going to the Herc OTU as a flight planning instructor. I was promoted out of that job to be Base Air Ops Officer in Trenton, and then took early retirment once I had passed to 20 year mark. I had become involved in book publishing associated with my hobby of scale modelling, and spent the next 5 years publishing squadron histories and running a mail order book business. That wasn't exactly lucrative, and I was eventually obliged to look for another means of living.

Through a lucky coincidence, I discovered Navtech, a computer flight planning software company in Waterloo...perhaps the ONLY job in all of Canada that had any need for my talents as navigator, teacher, publisher, and computer programmer.

Despite the fact that I was only guaranteed 3 months employment, to begin with, I was with Navtech for almost 20 years, writing user manuals, designing and testing programs, and traveling far and wide to do sales demos to airlines.

My wife, Gail, opened a consignment craft shop (A Gift to Remember)in St. Jacobs (about 5 km north of Waterloo), for which I created and ran a website. After 13 years she sold the business and we retired simultaneously. We bought a sailboat and a 5th wheel and moved to a new 55+ community at the back of a campground in Grand Bend so we could spend our winters traveling in the sunny south. One winter in Yuma, Arizona, the sunniest place in North America, was enough to convince us to purchase a home in an RV resort there in 2007, and we've been alternating between 6-month stints in Yuma and Grand Bend ever since.

Always a model-plane enthusiast, I took up radio control flying, and just recently have gone to flying a DJI Mavic drone which is amazing.

Gerry Mueller - Biography (2014)

I entered RMC in '61. Shortly thereafter I was diagnosed with a medical problem that has reappeared in minor ways ever since. However, in 1961 my condition was considered incurable, hence made me ineligible for active service. After a few shuttles back and forth between the College and CFB Kingston Hospital, for a few days each time of observation and unpleasant probing, I found myself at the end of November ’61 back at 6 PD in Toronto, being processed for a medical discharge.

At that time University of Waterloo engineering admitted a 1st year class into the coop program in January, and that's where I went, in Chemical Engineering. During my 1st term, I connected with the Company of the Highland Light Infantry (now the Highland Fusiliers) that had its armory in a Kitchener office building, but very quickly went on my 1st coop work term in Brockville, where I similarly connected with the Brockville Rifles. Before much came of that, other than getting to know people, I was back in Waterloo for the Summer, then back in Brockville for the Fall. Much to my surprise, given my peripatetic connection, I was commissioned 2nd Lt. in the Brockville Rifles, but then my next work term took me to Hamilton, and the military and I came to the understanding that even the militia couldn't cope with an officer that constantly moved about the country and would need to transfer regiments frequently. So I went on Supplementary Reserve for a few years, until I went off to England for three years, and that ended my non-distinguished military career!

I graduated from Waterloo in '66, and went to England and the University of Manchester on an Athlone Fellowship. On the ship over I reconnected with John Coderre (RMC 1962) who was heading to Birmingham for management studies on an Athlone. John's family and my family stayed in touch while in England, visiting back and forth and looking after each others' kids while one family travelled, and I stayed with John and his wife Pat in Montreal for a few weeks while settling my own family there.

After completing an M.Sc. (1967) and Ph.D. (1969) at the University of Manchester , I returned to Canada and took up a position in the Mechanical Engineering Department of (then) Sir George Williams University. Those were the days of great unrest in Quebec, and my feelings that I did not want to raise a family there were confirmed one October day when I saw the picture of James Cross on the front page of my newspaper, having just served with Cross on an Athlone selection committee, and been to a cocktail party for departing Athlone Fellows with him two nights before. So, when the opportunity arose to move back to the Chemical Engineering Department at Waterloo, I very quickly took it.

I was on the faculty at Waterloo from 1971 to 1988, serving also in various administrative positions. During the '80s my interests and future directions took a drastic shift, and while continuing to teach, administer and do research at Waterloo, I also managed to fit in 3 years of interning in pastoral psychotherapy, and eventually completed a Master of Divinity degree at Laurier (and Trinity College at U of T). In May '88 I was ordained Deacon, and in November '88 Priest in the Anglican Church of Canada. Over the next years I was a parish priest in Cambridge ('88 - '91), Mississauga ('91 - '96) and Scarborough ('97 - 2001). In the Fall of 2001 I returned to University of Waterloo, to Renison University College, the affiliated Anglican college, as Chaplain and Lecturer in Religious Studies. Five years later I retired. But, unlike most organizations, the Church doesn't just let you go, it just stops paying you, and so I now serve as Honorary Assistant Priest in a Kitchener parish, and preach and preside at Mass regularly, as well as filling in during holidays and absences of the Rector.

I was married to my present wife, June Longworth, in 2003. June retired from 38 years of service with Air Canada a couple of years before I retired, and we have traveled extensively in the years since. When she married me, June, who'd been single until then, acquired 3 grand-children (now 4) and we enjoy being granpa and granma to 2 young adults (my son married a widow with teenagers) and 8 and 10 year old girls.

None of this has gone as I expected it to when I showed up in Kingston in 1961, but as John Lennon said, life is what happens while you make other plans. And most of it has been good.

Doug Ross - Biography (Mar 2010)

Thirty –four years after entering the zoo, I retired from the CF – a denizen of Ottawa, as are most Air Force communicators. I formed a small consulting business in 1995 to invade the same spaces that I haunted when in uniform – but now in the business development vein. After a few years of this, the calls of the cottage on Bobs Lake (near Perth), Mexico and the golf course were strong enough to cause me to drop tools permanently. So now I just play tennis, golf and pickelball (what? – google it – a great newish game for geezers) and entertain six grandkids.

We moved to the left coast in 2005 into the wonderful Okanagan Valley- vineyards and golf courses and sunshine and mountains – and little rain. Tough though when most of the grandkids are in the East. I have recently turned the page and am on a second wife – Mary, a prairie girl who already has a pretty good handle on me. Lots of volunteer work with the church, golf course, community politics etc makes for interesting and lively times.

Looking forward to seeing all you old guys at Reunion and initiation into the .Old Brigade (already?).

Hugh J.M. Spence - Biography (Oct 2018)

It didn’t take me long after graduation to realize I didn’t really want to be a sub-hunting ship-driver or an Admiral, so I wound up in the DND public information business in Centennial year, teaching people how to spell Tattoo and where to buy tickets for the 1967 version. Never wore the jolly green jumper, but reached the exalted rank of Lt(N), though I always preferred the more senior-sounding “Capt(S)”. I jumped the whole ship in 1970 to do PR and admin’ work for an Ontario community college based in Kingston.

Back to Ottawa in 1975 for a brief stint with Transport Canada public affairs, and then a “permanent” job starting in 1976 as head of public information for the federal Atomic Energy Control Board, from which I retired in1998 with only fifteen Ghurkha spear wounds and a torn Greenpeace banner. I subsequently operated a home business for five years, providing writing and editing services on contract, “a scribe for a bribe”. Now, apart from enjoying a summer cottage and spending the worst winter months in Florida, I don’t do a lot except plunge through a weekly aquafit session and volunteer once a week at the Canadian War Museum as an Interpreter (aka washroom and exit location expert.)

My three kids (from my first marriage) are doing very well, the two boys in private industry senior management, and their younger sister a veterinarian with her own thriving practice. I remarried in 1997, and my retired teacher “afterwife” Chris and I share a love of music, though I’ve given up my hobby of men’s 4-part a capella harmony, including an all ex-cadet quartet called the Fallen Arches, and another, the Capital Lettermen, which starred in three different week-long runs of the Broadway show Music Man. I’m now well into official geezerhood, with two grandsons, three granddaughters, a monthly OAS cheque, and two heart stents.

In the late 1970s, he chaired the Consultative Group on Canadian Archives on behalf of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council. The group's report, Canadian Archives, also called the "Wilson Report," was released in 1980 and is considered "a milestone in the history of archival development in Canada." Wilson was president of the Ontario Historical Society from 1975 to 1976 and president of the Champlain Society from 1995 to 2003. In 1987 he became the honorary vice-president of the United Empire Loyalists' Association of Canada, a position he continues to hold. He served on the Information Management Sub-Committee of the Treasury Board of Canada and was appointed their information management co-champion for the Government of Canada in 2002. In September 2000, he was elected vice-president of the International Council on Archives.

The year 2002 was a landmark for library and archival services in Canada as Wilson and the national librarian at the time, Roch CARRIER, began the initial stages to amalgamate the National Library and the National Archives. Both Carrier and Wilson led the process to create a new institution that could address rapid changes in the delivery of library and archival services in Canada, services that had become increasingly similar with the advancement of digital technology. The process culminated with the establishment of Library and Archives Canada in 2004, and Wilson assumed the position of the first Librarian and Archivist of Canada in July of that year. In 2008 Wilson was elected president of the International Council on Archives, an organization that promotes the preservation of the archival heritage of humanity around the world. At the same time Wilson continued his work amalgamating national library and archival services in Canada and initiating several key ventures such as widespread access to early census data, and the acquisition of the entire Peter Winkworth rare art collection in 2008.

Ian Wilson retired from his position as Librarian and Archivist of Canada in 2009 and was succeeded by Daniel CARON. Upon retirement Wilson accepted an offer by the University of Waterloo to help establish a campus in Stratford, the Stratford Institute, a national think tank dealing with the impact of digital media. He continues to hold the title of Librarian and Archivist of Canada Emeritus and remains president of the International Council on Archives.

In recognition of his contribution to Canadian archives, Wilson was awarded honorary doctorates of letters from YORK UNIVERSITY (2002) and the UNIVERSITY OF SASKATCHEWAN (2010), and an honorary doctor of laws from QUEEN'S UNIVERSITY (2009). In 2003 he was elected Fellow of the Society of American Archivists and appointed Commandeur de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the Government of France. He became a member of the ORDER OF CANADA in 2002. Author LORRAINE SNYDER

John Telesphore Bart - 28 April 1943 - 28 September 2014

Published in the Toronto Star on Oct. 1, 2014

I'm Glad for All the Life I've Had :) There's nothing like a cancer diagnosis to force a man to take stock of his life. This is particularly true when you find out you have a glioblastoma -- an incurable brain cancer. Two and a half years ago, when I was almost 69, I got the news about my tumour after experiencing only a couple of weeks of mild symptoms. Up until the afternoon of my diagnosis, I lead a busy, productive life running a business I started more than two decades earlier. My wife and I travelled extensively, we ate well and exercised several times a week. In fact, I was in excellent health for my entire life, having been fortunate enough to dodge the many bullets that can cut down a man in his prime or destroy his quality of life. Still, here I am now, done with treatments and surgeries, facing the end of my life.

Most people are satisfied waiting for others to write about them after they're gone, but leaving things to others has never really been my style. And it hardly makes sense to change that now. I was born April 28, 1943 in Thorold, Ontario. From my modest beginnings as a young lad growing up on Patricia Street with my sisters Geraldine and Patsy and my brother Chris, I worked hard to make a better life for myself. As a teenager, I was eager to help out in our many family businesses, from dry cleaning to television repair to dairy delivery. Although many people would call the experiences of my youth "character building", none of them prepared me fully for the next chapter of my life.

After high school, my family had no money for costly university tuition, so in 1961 I did the only thing I could do to secure myself the future I wanted: I enrolled at the Royal Military College of Canada in Kingston, where I could trade three years of military service for an education. As an engineering student, the academic load was rigorous, but it was the mandatory participation in athletics that really took a toll -- though mostly on my ego. Despite all the challenges of RMC, I emerged four years later a better man, with a Bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering. I've always credited RMC with teaching me the lessons I would need to continue down the road to a successful life. That's why I was so delighted to be able to create an endowment at RMC that funds both the Captain John Bart Teamwork Prize and the Captain John Bart Leadership Award for new recruits each year.

After my service in the military, I returned to school and earned an MBA and PhD in Finance from the University of Western Ontario. I went on to teach corporate finance and stock market investing at several Canadian universities. It was during my tenure at the University of Windsor that I discovered the Stock Selection Guide developed by the late George Nicholson Jr. of the Detroit-based National Association of Investors Corporation (NAIC). I updated the Guide and began introducing it to Canada's individual investors. Subsequently in 1987, I developed the Canadian Shareowner Association, which came to include various investing educational publications, seminars and events. Now known as Canadian ShareOwner Investments Inc., this unique organization became the only Canadian investment dealer to sponsor a real-money stock market competition for university and college students ("Doublescoop"). Today, ShareOwner continues to provide Canada's only dollar-based stock trading service to individual investors. I feel very happy that my investment education and stock brokerage business have touched the lives of thousands of Canadians. Hopefully, they will all continue to follow the sensible investment principles taught by Canadian ShareOwner, such as dollar-cost-averaging, investing over the longterm and limiting portfolios to a few high quality growth stocks and low-cost exchange-traded funds that track indices such as the Standard & Poor's 500 Index.

Despite the cancer that is ravaging my brain, I really do believe I have been one of the lucky ones. I have truly enjoyed a rich life. Not only am I thankful for the many opportunities I have had to help improve the lives of others, but also for the strong, loving relationships I have built with my wife Mary, my children Angela Bart, Sarah Rogers and David Bart, as well as with my grandchildren Ellie Bart Bailey, Evelyn Bailey, Emma Rogers, Max Rogers, Zac Rogers, Bobby Bart, Johnny Bart and Annie Bart. I am also grateful for Dr. Mark Bernstein's neurosurgery team and the doctors and nurses at The Gerry Nancy Pencer Brain Tumor Centre at Princess Margaret Hospital for helping extend my life considerably longer than might have been expected.

Mary has stood by me since my tumour was first diagnosed and has helped me live comfortably with the side effects of the surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. I don't know what I would have done without her. Even when the treatments and the disease itself left me weary and battered, Mary would insist that we get up and do things -- even simple errands -- just to get out of the house. It is thanks to Mary's spunk and determination that we were even able to spend a good part of the last two winters out of the cold in a beautiful condo in Florida. And right up until the end, she would always insist that we honour our weekly "date night" on Friday evenings, when we would drink wine, eat cheese and dance or just listen to a selection of special music we compiled together. It seems fitting, then, that I should leave her with the lyrics of one of our all-time favourite songs by Alan Jackson: "We won't be sad. We'll be glad for all the life we've had." And I am very glad for all the life I've had.

Ross Burns - Obituary (1998)

6519 Lieutenant-Colonel Ross Arthur Burns, CD 

Ross died suddenly on March 29, 1998 in Calgary. He was predeceased by his wife Anna who had died after a long illness in 1996. He is survived by his children Carey, Ian, Andrew, and Erin. Ross graduated from RMC in 1965 with an honours degree in Economics and Commerce, and earned an MA in Economics at the University of Western Ontario in 1966. He served in the 8th Canadian Hussars Regiment for 14 years, retiring with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel in 1980. His private sector career was with Nova Corporation, most recently as Manager, Government Relations.

As a cadet, Ross was the ultimate "Truth, Duty, Valour" man, serving as CSL of 5  Squadron in his final year. Not given to many words, he earned respect by doing  rather than saying. Everything he did, he did very, very well. This habit never left   him. In a letter read at his memorial service, a former sergeant praised him as "the best officer he had ever served under". At Nova, Ross instituted a highly successful  mentor program which paired seasoned executives with green, new hires. Also a  leader in the Canadian chemical industry, he raised the profile of environmental   issues well before it became popular to do so. At home, he was a dedicated husband and father. Canada has lost a role model. His deeds and our memory of him will live on.

Barrie Corden - Obituary (Oct 2018)
 

CORDEN, John Barrie August 18, 1943 - October 12, 2018

It is with sadness we announce the passing of Barrie on October 12, 2018, at the Brockville General Hospital at age 75. Barrie will be deeply missed by his wife Geraldine; daughters Karen and Debi (Rob Soria); granddaughters Kohl and Sarah; stepchildren Hugh, Keri (Gary Dayanandan), and Fraser; step- grandchildren Kyle and Jade; sister Ruth Whiston, niece Fritha Fisher and her son Ben. He was predeceased by his parents Stanley and Marion; sister Amelia Corden; and aunt Ruth Low.

Born in Montreal, Barrie loved to play football and hockey and would spend summers at the family camp Birch Grove on Lac Quenouille. Barrie was a proud graduate of the Royal Military College of Canada, Class of 1965, and always spoke fondly of his time there and the friends he made. After graduation he was stationed in North Bay with the RCAF, earning the nickname Blast. He joined the private sector in 1969 and moved to Brockville with Jeri after his retirement.

Barrie loved to fish, cook, read, tinker around the house, listen to music - especially Neil Diamond, and spend time with his family. We will miss his smile and hugs, his practical advice, those infamous lists, and of course that laugh. The family wishes to thank the staff at the Brockville General Hospital ICU and Emergency departments for the compassion and care they provided during this difficult time. Arrangements are entrusted to the Irvine Funeral Home, 45 James St., E. Following Barrie's request there will be no funeral service and a private burial will be held at a later date.

Corrado DiGenova - Obituary(2007)

BY THE GAZETTE (MONTREAL) MARCH 18, 2007

  Corrado di Genova was Montreal's leading makeup artist in the 1970s, a stylist with panache who developed his own line of cosmetics and who was among the first to promote the then daring idea that men might benefit from wearing makeup. He is also credited with inventing a quick-tint pencil stick used for quick touch-ups to hide grey hair.

He was 62 when he died at Manhattan's St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital on Feb. 22 of complications from a collapsed lung.

"He was a pioneer, a major influence on the emerging fashion consciousness of the early '70s," said New York-based design guru, Dick Walsh."He was brilliant. He had the look. He was very athletic, very sexy, manicured and polite. "When he and his wife, Electa, opened their store on Crescent St., their makeup was the best you could find at the time. It was very glamorous. So in. People from New York came to Montreal to shop there."

Corrado di Genova was born in Montreal Aug. 17, 1944, the second of three boys in a family with Italian immigrant parents. His father was a hatmaker, and young Corrado was his apprentice, attaching beads and feathers to his father's creations.

After completing his first year of arts at McGill University, he won a scholarship to the Royal Military College in Kingston, Ont., where he studied electronics engineering. His career in the military ended in 1963 when he broke his neck in a car accident.

While recovering from his injuries, di Genova learned to cut hair from his brother, Angelo, then one of the city's best and most expensive hair stylists. After working as a hairdresser for four years, di Genova went into partnership with Electa McMaster and modelling agent Constance Brown in 1967 when they started The Make Up Centre on Sherbooke St. He and McMaster married in 1969 and together they launched their own boutique, Electa and Corrado, on Crescent St. They also started their own laboratories to manufacture foundation creams, skin-care products and makeup.

Eventually, they had 275 outlets across Canada including Eaton, Simpson and The Bay. In their heyday, they specialized in fashion photography makeup, ran a grooming course for flight attendants and taught makeup artistry in CEGEPs.

The marriage and the partnership ended in 1986 when di Genova came to terms with his bisexuality and moved to Manhattan where he become a consultant with Prestige Cosmetics. "He was popular, he was extremely confident, charismatic, but he never let his success go to his head. He was always very down to earth, very giving," said company president Jacques Cohen. In New York, di Genova was an active volunteer with the Gay Men's Health Crisis (GMHC), a non-profit, community-based organization committed to the fight against AIDS.

He is survived by his mother, his two brothers and his extended family including his step-daughter, Anna, his companion, Richard Gagnon, his ex-wife and former business partner, Electa McMaster and his godson, Christian.

Ken Eyre - Obituary (July 2017)

  Ken was born in Shelburne, NS  on November 23, 1942 to loving parents Winnie and Ralph Eyre. His father was a member of the Army Corp of Engineers and as Ralph carried out his duties, including the building of the Alaska Highway, Ken and his family lived in various places across Canada. He spent his formative high school years in Whitehorse, Yukon and there developed a lasting respect for Canada's North.

Ken graduated from the Royal Military College of Canada (BA) and served in the Canadian Army from 1965 to 1982, primarily with infantry and airborne forces. He was commissioned into the Queen's Own Rifles and was subsequently rebadged to the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry. During his military career he served twice on peacekeeping missions in Cyprus, one during the period of the coup d'etat and Turkish invasion in 1974.

A brilliant scholar, Ken received a MA in History from Duke University in 1967 and in 1974 became the first serving officer awarded a Department of National Defence Fellowship. He chose to work towards a Ph.D at King's College, University of London. His thesis was entitled Custos Borealis: The Military In the Canadian North, an examination of Canada's defence policy and operations. As part of his field research, he was posted to Yellowknife and had the opportunity to travel extensively throughout the North, with emphasis on the Northwest Passage and the High Arctic. When it came time at King's College to defend his dissertation, the College asked the Canadian government for an expert on the subject to join the board in reviewing the paper and questioning the candidate. The single expert Canada could suggest was that of Major K.C. Eyre, MA. The dissertation was accepted and Ken was granted a Ph.D in 1981. In recognition of all his original work relating to Canada' s North, he was nominated by the Department of National Defence for the 1982 Massey Medal.

After retiring from the army, Ken worked for several years at National Sea Products, then became Principal Scientist at Crisis Simulations, a research company designing military battle and disaster training simulations. In 1994, he was appointed the first Director of Studies at the Pearson International Peacekeeping Centre established by the Government of Canada in Clementsport, NS. During his tenure at the Centre, he served in various other positions, including Director of Research and Development, Director of Exercises and Executive Vice President. Ken was instrumental in developing an intellectual focus and a dynamic multidisciplinary approach for the Centre's peacekeeping training, one that was unique in the world and studied by other countries. Many people still working in the fields of peacemaking and rebuilding conflict ridden countries around the globe are using concepts and principles learned from his work.

Ken had an incisive and active intellect and curiosity and did not suffer intellectual sloppiness but as a teacher, friend and husband, he could be gentle and reassuring and was a loyal friend and inspiring mentor to many people.

He also had a great sense of fun and whimsy. In his retirement years, Ken took up Cowboy Action Shooting, combining boyhood pursuits with a love of target shooting. He and his friends spent many happy days participating in matches with titles such as " High Noon", " The Shooting of Dan McGrew" and "Ghostriders in the Sky. " Also in retirement, he created driftwood art and garden octopi- huge creatures made from spruce burls he harvested from local forests and lakes that he painted fanciful colours and often named after friends.

The love for the outdoors he learned as a boy never left Ken. He was an avid fly fisherman, both in salt and freshwater, and was most content when fishing, particularly on Nova Scotia's brooks and rivers in the spring of the year and on Florida's inland waterways during the winters he spent there. He used to quote from a Babylonian proverb often : "The gods do not deduct from man's allotted span the hours spent fishing. " All those who mourn his death wish the gods had given him many more hours.

Ken died on July 13, 2017, shortly after being diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. He leaves his wife Carole (Annapolis Royal), his sister Heather  and brother  in law Raymond d'Entremont ( Lower West Pubnico), niece Corinne d' Entremont (Killeen, Texas) and nephew Peter d'Entremont (Ottawa).

Cremation has taken place under the care and direction of Kaulbach Family Funeral Home, Annapolis Royal; a private internment will be held at Mountain Cemetery , Yarmouth, NS. A service to remember Ken will be held on August  17, 2017 at Hillsdale House Inn, St George Street, Annapolis Royal beginning at 1:30pm. Donations in his memory may be made to the Clean Annapolis River Project for use with the Youth Leading Environmental Change Program. (Box 395, Annapolis Royal, NS, B0S1A0)

Reflections….Bob Walker has provided the following information on the passing of his namesake (not a relative) George Walker.

After first year, George did a 3-bar, flight-leader term in second year at Roads, & spent his third & fourth year at RMC in the Frigate with several other Roads mates, including Steve Arnold. After our RMC 1965 graduation, George climbed the Fort Henry hill for his Army Engineering career, & completed his obligatory service before returning to his home-town in Alberta. I lost touch with him after RMC..."

Peter J. Walker  - Obituary (July 2017)
Peter passed away peacefully on July 24th, 2017 in Pointe Claire, QC. Beloved father to Pam (Ben) and Tim, and adoring grandfather to Ashley, Brady and Austin. Predeceased by his loving wife Susan, and affectionately remembered by his “little” brother Doug (Linda) and “big” brother-in-law John (Louise), as well as his wonderful nieces, nephews and dear friends (way too many to count but all so cherished by Peter).

“Peter’s life is interesting for his accomplishments in sports and in business. He played for the Montreal Alouettes and he held executive positions in manufacturing, including in at least one high tech venture with world-wide sales.”

Peter graduated from the Royal Military College of Canada in 1965 and embarked on a brief career as a naval officer, however, he decided that football (a sport at which he had excelled at RMC) might ease him out of the armed services into a civilian chemical engineering profession. To com-bine football and a full time job, he started in research. This allowed him enough freedom to play football and at the same time to become a specialist in paper drying.

After a few years, with the Canadian paper industry faltering he moved to Switzerland to become a specialist in paper dyeing where he remained for four years before returning to Canada.

Upon return he took up a position as a chemical engineer specializing in paper drying equipment and proceeded up the corporate ladder to eventually become Director of Sales and Marketing. He was then offered a job as VP & GM with a company specializing in maintenance and repair welding where he worked for several years before leaving to join a new business venture in machine vision – a new technology in which cameras fed images to computers and the computers then fine-tuned the production process and the product quality.

He became CEO and remained with the company for ten years until it was bought out by an American company at which time he decided to retire.

Retirement proved too slow for Peter and after only three months he joined several of his old employees in the paper drying business doing the same job that he had held over thirty years previously.

Peter is remembered fondly by his RMC Classmates as a gentle giant whose size and prowess on the football field earned him the nickname of “Baby Huey.” All members of the Class of 1965 express their condolences to his family for his sad and untimely passing.

(Please note that this is a summary of a biography that Pete provided to the Class Newsletter and is not an official obituary)

Bob Walker  - Obituary (Dec 2018)

After a short but graceful struggle with cancer, Dr. Robert William Walker died on December 4th, 2018 beside his loving family. Bob was most proud of two things, his “girls” (his wife, Colleen Walker, his daughter, Kimothy Walker, and his granddaughter Kyra Lambert), and his 50 years of public service in the military and the RCMP.

Bob is survived by two siblings, Patricia Bannister and Gordon Walker, and their beloved spouses Robin Bannister and Janet Walker, in addition to his niece, two nephews and a grand-nephew.

Most of all he loved his wife, Colleen, his partner of 52 years.

Bob started his career with the military while still in his teens and attended RRMC, RMC and eventually graduated from Queens University with an MA and Ph.D. Bob was fiercely proud of RMC, Kingston and his university.

His military career took his family from Victoria to Kingston and on to Toronto, Winnipeg and Ottawa, where he joined the RCMP at the Canadian Police College before returning to the military as a civilian back at Kingston’s Canadian Forces Leadership Institute at RMC

Bob was one of the kindest men who ever walked the planet and will be deeply missed by those who knew him best.

In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in his name to the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation www.ottawacancer.ca or Lions Foundation of Canada Guide Dogs (Autism Program)www.dogguides.com

A private ceremony will be held at a future date.
