LESLEY HELEN HARRIS
(1948 - 2019)
On May 17, 2019 after a lengthy illness, Lesley passed away peacefully on Gabriola Island, BC with her husband, Glenn, and daughters, Amanda and Brooke, at her side.
Born in London, England, Lesley immigrated to Canada with her parents at the age of 7. She attended school in Toronto, moving to London, Ontario in 1975 upon marriage to Glenn. She worked in public relations for the Ontario government for a number of years. She was also an active volunteer, chairing London's Contact Crisis Centre and serving as a member of the Parkwood Hospital board. The family moved to Spruce Grove, Alberta in 1991 and to Gabriola Island, British Columbia in 2004.
Lesley loved Gabriola. She developed many dear friendships and became an active member of the community, pursuing her artistic interests including serving as board member of the Gabriola Arts Council. Wise, witty and full of life, she was an intensely loving mother and wife and a loyal, generous and compassionate friend. The family has been overwhelmed by expressions of love and support that attest to the extraordinary woman she was and to the powerful impact she had on so many people. It is difficult to find words to express adequately our appreciation.
Special thanks to Dr. Tracey Thorne and all the other members of the health care community on Gabriola who gave her comfort and support during her illness.
Donations can be made to Gabriola Island's People for a Healthy Community or to the animal welfare charity of your choice.
A celebration of Lesley's life will be held at 2:30 p.m., Sunday, July 14 at the Surf Lodge on Gabriola Island.
WILLIAM ALBERT IRISH
Born 1937. After willfully outmaneuvering death a dozen times in his storied life, Bill's family is profoundly sad to announce his sudden passing on June 8, 2019. Father, friend, and devoted husband; artist, lumberjack, cartographer, Mountie, director, house builder, teacher, author and, once upon a time, bouncer.
Born in Calgary; son to Albert and Mayme; loving brother to Marilyn and Margy. Bill was a man of a thousand stories, happily heard many times over. Known to many as one of the founders of The Partners' Film Co., Bill's closest partner was his wife of 30 years, Kathryn, with whom he shared a big love that merged two families.
His career was anchored in the television commercial and advertising industries. He had a knack for directing children actors and bringing out the best in them... a skill he continued with his own children who survive him: Mark, Kate, Jason, Danielle and David. Proud grandfather to Hannah and father-in-law to Bonnie and Allison.
There will be no funeral or memorial at Bill's request. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the ALS Society of Canada in honour of his beloved Kathryn.
On June 10, 2019, Norman Lean passed away peacefully at home at the age of 95. He was the devoted husband of 60 years to Ninette, who predeceased him in April of last year. Norm is survived by his three sons, Marc (Alison), Robert (Andrea) and John (Lucy); and by grandchildren, Nathan (Nicole), Naomi (Grace), Gabriel, William and Hannah.
Norm, in his later years, liked to speak of his youth growing up in Kensington Market and of his classmates at Harbord Collegiate who became lifelong friends.
A veteran, Norm joined the Air Force early, in his mid-teens.
After the war, Norm had many jobs - a hauler for Orange Crush, a bouncer for the old Concord Tavern, and the owner and cook at his own Burger King. In his late 30's he found his true calling and turned to the business of real estate in which he had great success. In his 80s he developed a passion for stock trading and spent countless hours following the market. Even in his last months, Norm was still looking to make a good business deal.
Norm was an avid athlete and played many sports, football with the Air Force, baseball with the Toronto Lizzies and for many years, you could find him on the handball courts at the Bloor YMHA at home in Toronto or Flamingo Park in Miami. He loved watching any sport and had opinions about all of them whether it be football, tennis, basketball or thoroughbred racing.
We thought he would live forever and will always miss him.
The family expresses a heartfelt thanks to Josie, Vicky and Grifelda for their dedication and care for both Ninette and Norm over the last several years. You made it possible for them both to live at home as they wished.

THE HONOURABLE THOMAS E. QUINLAN
Surrounded by the love of his family, Tom passed away on Friday, June 7, 2019 at the age of 86 in St.
Catharines. Beloved husband of 60 years to Jane. Cherished father to Kelley Hindrichs (Michael), Colleen Quinlan (Jeff), and Paul Quinlan (Julie). Much loved Papa to grandchildren, Carly Machasic (Tom), Bobby and Katy Osadetz, Tom and Rebecca Hindrichs (Benson), Anna and John Quinlan; and great-granddaughter, Olivia Machasic. He will be sadly missed by his brother, Lou Quinlan and sister-in-law, Marilyn. Predeceased by his parents, Albin and Geraldine Quinlan and siblings, Catherine Daly, Joanne Shea and John Quinlan.
Tom was born in St. Catharines and was an avid athlete, playing football and basketball in high school and spending summers lifeguarding. One university was not enough for Tom; he tried his hand at engineering at Queen's University but quickly found it was not his forté. In 1955, he graduated from Western University and found his true calling in the law.
Subsequently, he graduated from Osgood Hall and was called to the bar in 1959. Tom began his law career with the firm Coy, Quinlan, Barch and Brooks. He was elected to the local city council in 1965 and was politically active in the Liberal Party. In 1977, he was appointed to the Superior Court in Milton, Ontario where he proudly served as a federal judge for two decades.
In retirement, he travelled across Canada as a judge with the Pension Appeals Board until 2009.
Tom was an enthusiastic member of the St. Catharines community, serving on the hospital board for many years. He took pleasure in peaceful mornings canoeing at the cottage on Otter Lake, puttering in the garden or playing a round of golf. He displayed his creative skills through woodworking and stained glass, leaving behind many beautiful pieces for others to enjoy.
Tom had a terrific sense of humour and a quick wit, never missing a chance to get a laugh. He was an exemplary role model of faith, humility, kindness and integrity.
Tom was much loved and will be greatly missed.
In accordance with Tom's wishes, cremation has taken place. Friends are invited to call at George Darte Funeral Home, 585 Carlton St, St.
Catharines for visitation on Friday, June 14 2019, from 2 to 8 p.m. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Saturday, June 15, 2019 at 11 a.m. at St. Julia Catholic Church, 251 Glenridge Ave, St. Catharines.
In lieu of flowers the family would appreciate donations to the Autism Society of Ontario (Niagara) or the Walker Family Cancer Centre. Onlinr Guest Book - http://www.georgedartefuneralhome.com.
