CARL COOPER FLINTOFF
July 12, 1928 - June 15, 2019 Carl always described himself as "on the mend," however, he died peacefully on June 15, 2019, at St. Joseph's General Hospital in Elliot Lake after a brief hospitalization, with family around him. His wit is renowned but we continue to be touched and amazed at how many people have said "your Dad was so good to me" and "your Dad always had time for me."
Carl was born on July 12, 1928 in Orono, Ontario to Hazel Annetta Cooper and Glen Lonsdale Flintoff. His father was a successful owner of a hardware store in Oshawa until he became ill. He died on March 5, 1936 when Carl was 7 years old. Carl was predeceased by his older sister, Margaret Connolly. He is greatly missed by his younger sister, Shirley Branton, of Windsor and her children. Shirley lovingly remembers how her big brother, Carl, from age 11 always looked out for her when their widowed mother, ever resourceful, went to work in a munitions factory in Pickering during World War II.
Carl married the love of his life, Jacqueline (Clarke) Flintoff, on February 9, 1952. He first whistled at her from the steps of the bank in her hometown of Bowmanville as she walked by with her sisters. They were married for 50 years until Jacquie died on April 4, 2002. Dad's loving care to our mother during her illness is forever in our hearts. When she couldn't walk anymore, he waltzed her on top of his feet to wherever she needed to go. Her loving memory was great solace for him especially in the past couple of years and now Dad has rejoined his dance partner.
Carl was a founding father of Elliot Lake. He arrived in the summer of 1957 after his brother-in-law, Clifford LaPrairie, invited Carl to join him in business... and other adventures. Carl retired in 1995 and was recognized for his 37 years in business in Elliot Lake. He said that going through the tough times with the town taught him to appreciate the good times even more.
Carl loved playing and watching all sports, especially when his children and grandchildren were involved. He played on the Orono Orphans Hockey Team when they won the Ontario Junior Championship in 1949. This resulted in his induction into the Clarington Sports Hall of Fame in 2003. He played for the Elliot Lake Oldtimers and then as a hockey veteran, he coached. For the past 25 years, Carl enjoyed organizing the biggest golf tournament in northern Ontario. "The Flint" is still going strong with the annual tournament always held on the Canada Day weekend. Carl was overseeing and checking the details for the upcoming tournament right up until his last day.
Carl will be greatly missed by his six children and their spouses, Margaret Mary Flintoff (Peter Henderson) of Ottawa; Veronica Fyck (Terry) and Michael Flintoff (Judy) of Burlington; Charles Flintoff (Lisa) and Billy Flintoff (Doreen) of Elliot Lake; and Cecilia Richardson (John) of Waterdown.
Carl and Jacquie have 17 grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren, with 3 more on the way: Bennett Henderson (Kaila) and son, Cooper; Jacqueline Henderson (Greg) and son, Peter; Graeme Henderson (Rachel) and children, Maeve and Fenwick; Frazier Fyck and children, Jaxon and Kylie; Mackenzie Fyck (Laura) and son, Maddox; Carl Flintoff (Brigitte) and children, Maxandre, Zackaël and Adélie; Malcolm Flintoff (Renée) and son, Miles; Denver Toole (Ryan) and sons, Thomas and Oliver; Michael Flintoff; Heather Flintoff; Charlie Flintoff (Bettina); Farrell Flintoff (Céline) and daughter, Abigail; Spenser Flintoff (Miia); Mandy Poole; Laura, Renee and Jack Richardson.
Carl also enjoyed and loved his many in-laws. He will be missed by Colleen Clarke, Maria Clarke, Patricia Barber, Bill and Joan Clarke, Clifford LaPrairie and Donna Clarke. Carl was predeceased by Jacquie's sister, Nonie LaPrairie and her husband, Carl LaPrairie; and his brother-in-law, Gerry Clarke. Carl loved and was loved by many nieces and nephews: the LaPrairies, the Clarkes, the Wimpennys, and the Barbers.
Friends and family are invited to attend a visitation on Thursday, June 20, 2019 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Hampton Inn Maple Room in Elliot Lake. Funeral Mass will be celebrated by Rev. Anthony ManSon-Hing at Saint Bernadette Catholic Church, 45 Spruce Ave., Elliot Lake on Friday, June 21, 2019 at 11 a.m. If you wish, contributions in memory of Carl can be made to the St. Joseph's General Hospital Foundation http://www.sjhfound.com via the CanadaHelps.org link and directed to the CT Scanner Fund (70 Spine Road, Elliot Lake, ON P5A 1X2).
The family would like to thank the North East LHIN Home and Community Care staff for their compassionate care in recent months. We would also like to extend deepest appreciation to: Carl's long-time family physician, Dr. Barry Wannan; the following caring physicians, Dr. Stirling, Dr. Long, Dr. Prescott, Dr. deBortoli; and the stellar nursing staff of St. Joseph's General Hospital.
We quote Carl for the final words, "I had a great run... Enough said."
ROSS EDDY A man of intelligence, wisdom, a wry sense of humour and a generous heart has left us. Ross Beverly Eddy, born December 19, 1931 in Bathurst, NB, the tenth of the eleven children of Chesley George Eddy and his wife, Grace Cheyne, passed peacefully at his home in Cobourg with his wife, Susan, as always, by his side on June 17, 2019.
Forever grateful for his presence in our lives are his loving wife, Susan; his children by his first wife, Joan Hosking, FreyJa, David, Steven (Lori Anne), baby Michael (deceased), Marilyn (Lance) and Chris; and Susan's children, Jenn (Kirk), Kim and Lori. Ross was an inspirational Bracky/Grampy to 18 grandchildren and 8 greatgrandchildren. Loved by many nieces and nephews and great-nieces and nephews. Ross's truest legacy is his family and friends whose lives may reflect the lessons they learned from him.
Visitation will be held at MacCoubrey Funeral Home, 30 King Street E., Cobourg on Sunday, June 23, 2019 at 12 noon with service of Remembrance and Celebration to follow at 1:30 p.m. A reception will follow the service in the MacCoubrey Funeral Home Reception Centre.

BRIAN PATRICK KAVANAGH

In addition, he was a passionate scientist and researcher, focusing particularly on lung injury, and the effects of mechanical ventilation on the lungs.
More than that, he was an immensely dedicated father.
He always valued time with family, returning to Ireland - forever his home - on multiple occasions every year. Brian was also a very talented uilleann piper, playing often and with immense joy.
He loved cycling, a good crossword, swimming in the sea, and through to the end, a good cup of tea with his homemade brown bread.
