CHARLES CURRAN "Chuck"
Passed away suddenly on Monday, June 4, 2018 in his 65th year. Survived by his loving wife Ellen (née Dickson), devoted father of Tyler, "my wonderful boy," and Samantha, "my Baby Girl." Much loved brother to Gary (Lanis) and Brian, and brother-in-law to Cathy Dickson, Shelagh Noble (Kerry), and Pat Dickson (Dan Miller). Cherished uncle to Lindsay Curran, Kyle Curran, Heather Silverthorne (Greg and Lily), Alison Noble and Julia Filer (Derek). Chuck also had a wonderful relationship with his mother and fatherin-law, Florence and the late Bob Dickson.
Chuck enjoyed his many years of work at Ryder, Alcatel, Canadian Tourism Commission and ICBC.
Upon his retirement he loved traveling with Ellen - walking the hills of Italy and France and cycling in Bhutan and Thailand.
As well, he enjoyed renovating their new house.
Chuck was a large figure in everyone's lives. He had that wonderful combination of humour, energy, intelligence and goodwill. He was the guy who would happily do anything for you and showed his love with a warm hug. The love of his life was Ellen - "My Honey," "My Beautiful Bride" - and they built an extensive network of friends in Ontario and Vancouver. Chuck was a supportive and caring husband, devoted father and loyal friend, known for his warmth, sense of humour, kindness, generosity and hard work. Chuck will be forever missed but his incredible legacy will live on through his loving family and the relationships he had throughout his life.
With friends and family in both Vancouver and Ontario, there will be two gatherings. In Vancouver, on Saturday, June 16th the family will receive friends at the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club, from 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. In Ontario, the family will receive friends on Saturday, July 7th at the Roseland Park Country Club, 3079 Princess Blvd, Burlington, from 1:00 - 4:00 p.m.

Peacefully, on June 9, 2018 in her 90th year. Beloved mother of Martina; Dear sister of Elsbeth Kment; Aunt of Dr. Axel Kment.

JOHN SCOTT DEACON
71 - Our loving and beloved father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend passed on June 7, 2018.
Born into a large and loving family, Scott was a bright and kind spirit who touched all he knew with his thoughtfulness and loyalty. His charm, selflessness and dash of mischief will be missed by all who loved him.
Whether professionally, socially or randomly, he was quick to befriend those who crossed his path; always lending an ear, his time and support - and more often than not acting as the IT support desk! Friends new and old were always nearby, and his family was dear to him. Scott was the first to remember and celebrate the accomplishments of others and the first to raise a glass of red wine in their honour. Over the years, Scott was a contributor to the communities of Branksome Hall, Caledon and Beaumaris, forging memories and friendships along the way. His enjoyment of music was perhaps only rivaled by the companionship of his four legged friends over the years; Basil, Sophie, Roscoe and Fergus, each playing large roles in various chapters of his life. For many he will be remembered happily on the water in his beloved Landrover.
Scott will be dearly missed by his three devoted daughters and two sons-in-law; Emily, Norah, Tim, Grace, and Morris; and will forever be 'Pop' to his five grandchildren, Henry, Samuel, Cecily, Rosemary, and Frederick.
Scott is also survived by siblings, Peter, Barbara, and Susan.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Parkinson's Society of Canada or to Dancing with Parkinson's.
The family would also like to extend a special thank you to the staff at Bradgate Arms, his caregivers and the extended medical teams of nurses and doctors who took such great care of Scott over the last few years.
Details of a celebration of Scott's life for his family and friends will be shared in the coming days.

LORI LEVINE (nee McGilvray) 1945 - 1998
Twenty years ago, your life ended far too soon. A single mom to an only child - you gave me everything.
The past two decades, I've tried to pass on your mettle, kindness and love to everyone worthy.
You'd be so happy to see the family your tenacity helped to create. My wife Melissa, and children Landry Jackson (2 years) and Tatum Lorraine (2 months) are named after you and your father. We speak of you fondly and often. I see your vibrancy in them every day and miss you sweetly.
OLIVER MARTIN June 29, 1982 - June 13, 2008
It is now ten years since Oliver and his best friend, Dylan were ruthlessly shot to death. The emotional road for family and friends since then has been difficult and often painful.
Oliver's personal life was rich and loving with his sisters, mom and step-dad, many close friends and extended family in PEI. The remarkable success trajectory of his professional life remembered by many.
We all share a loss which has diminished our lives, but are motivated by memories of his smiling enthusiastic challenges to all of us to live life to the fullest.
We continue to be enriched by the impact and recollections of our wonderful Obie, his love and his appreciation of life and those he cared about.
FOREVER LOVED, MISSED AND MOURNED.
MARJORIE MARY ALICE SHARPE June 5, 1931 - June 13, 2016 Always in our thoughts and hearts.
Love always, Your family and friends
