HUGH STUART IRVINE
November 1, 1932 April 15, 2019 It is with great sadness that the family announces that Hugh Stuart Irvine has passed away after a short hospital stay. Hugh leaves his devoted wife, Morag; his much loved children, Lorraine (Mike Upton) and Alan (Maggie); and his adored grandchildren, Nicole and Kyle. Hugh also had a younger brother, Jim, who predeceased him.
Hugh had a remarkable life and was an equally remarkable man. Born in Wishaw, Scotland to Martha and Hugh Stuart, he survived going into air raid shelters when the Clyde Bank was bombed, had a serious bout with rheumatoid arthritis when he was 10 which left him with lifelong joint damage, and entered the University of Strathclyde at night to take mechanical engineering while working as a draughtsman during the day. When he graduated, he married his sweetheart Morag and they immigrated to Canada in 1957. Hugh worked for Acres Engineering, GE Canada and then moved to Ajax in 1970 to join Ontario Hydro. At Ontario Hydro, Hugh was a pioneer in the design and construction of nuclear power plants, including Pickering, Bruce and Darlington.
At the end of his career in 1992 he retired as Chief Engineer.
Throughout his career, Hugh carried himself with grace and treated all with respect. He also ran for town council in Ajax when the town was not under regional government and volunteered for other municipal groups including a citizens group who fought the building of a road along the lakeshore in Ajax in an area which is now parkland. Despite his physical limitations, he played soccer, golf and coached hockey.
He was a lifelong devotee of jazz and even learned to play a modified saxophone well enough to play in a local big band. As demonstrated by every nuclear engineer, his risk aversion resulted in the entire stock of brass screws in Ajax being used in three backyard planters. Hugh was a larger than life supporter of the Glasgow Rangers soccer team and helped run several supporters clubs both in Whitby and in Florida. Heaven forbid if any of his children wore any green clothing. He belonged to a monthly poker club.
He had two brushes with death which coloured his cheerful outlook on life. He was on the CP flight from Vancouver to Japan in 1985 that contained a bomb in its cargo that exploded in the airport when it arrived early. This was the same day as the Air India disaster.
In 2002, he fell in the backyard and stayed for 49 days ICU after being given three sets of plates in his neck. The rest of his spine was already fused with spondylitis.
He learned to walk, talk and regain some use of his hands while spending four months in Lyndhurst Rehabilitation Hospital.
Hugh figured out how to use a computer and used his electric wheelchair to take rides along the lake. He continued to spend winters in Florida until the last few years. Hugh had friends all over the world whose kind words have helped the family through his passing.
The family wishes to thank the staff at the Lakeridge Hospital in Ajax for all their skill and support.
A Celebration of Life will take place on Friday April 26 at 1pm at the Hilton Garden Inn in Ajax. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Arthritis Society or the charity of your choice.
IAN JAMIESON 1929 - 2019 Passed away from complications from dementia Friday, April 19, 2019 with Shirley by his side.
Husband of 63 years to Shirley, father to Mhairi, Neil (Michelle) and Fiona (Ron). Pops to Sam, Anna, Brigitte, Casper, Zack, Jamie, Lexi, Lyla, Parker, and Fox.
Brother to Stanley (Margaret) and Brian (deceased).
Ian grew up in Scotland on the family farm Daltonhook, Dumfries.
He was head boy at Dumfries Academy, graduated from St.
Andrews University and was a top pilot in the RAF. He immigrated to Canada in 1954, meeting Shirley shortly after arriving in Toronto.
They were married on December 22, 1955.
Ian's career began in Toronto with AE Ames and Company, followed by a long career with Dofasco Inc.
as their Pension Fund Manager, and finally retiring many years later from his own company Lincluden Management Limited.
His influence in the investment world was profound and touched many through the years. His integrity and honesty earned him the respect of everyone he dealt with, both personally and professionally.
He loved to play sports, particularly enjoying running in the Masters events, tennis, squash and golf.
Ian and Shirley were great travelers, seeing the world together and often bringing the whole family along on their adventures. They spent many winters playing tennis at the Silver Thatch in Pompano Beach, and the last twenty years wintering in Hermanus, South Africa. But his favourite place was his farm Riverbend in Hornby, Ontario, where he could plant his trees, raise his horses and watch his family grow up.
A life well lived, and he will be missed by all he met along the way. We are grateful he no longer has to struggle through a terrible disease, and we know he is at peace and watching over us.
In lieu of flowers, a donation to the memorial Scholarship Fund established in memory of Ian's grandson Jamie (deceased January 22, 2019) (http://www.
campwenonah.com/about-us/ jamie-kennedy-scholarshipfund/) or Hospice Wellington (http://www.hospicewellington.org) is welcome.

He will be sadly missed by his many nephews, nieces, grandnephews and grandnieces both here in Canada and abroad. We would like to thank the staff at Amica who cared for him so lovingly these last difficult months.
Bill had a brilliant legal mind. He was a trailblazer and a pioneer greatly loved and respected by peers, colleagues, clients and the bench. Never shy to fight for the rights of his clients he argued at all levels of the court all the way up to the Supreme Court of Canada.
He was a mentor and teacher with his door always open to offer advice and support never afraid to let someone shine. Bill has served as President of the Hamilton Law Association, President of the Hamilton Medical-Legal Society, President of the Hamilton Jewish Federation Canada, President of the League for Human Rights of B'nai B'rith Canada, President of B'nai B'rith Canada and Vice-President of B'nai B'rith International. In addition, he has served the public in many executive and member capacities.
He was a great man full of spirit and a zest for life. Bill's love for the Jewish community was paramount and his generosity knew no bounds. He was a mentor and philanthropist. He was to be recognized next month for his lifelong devotion to the Hamilton Jewish community. He will be greatly missed by all.
