Hundreds say goodbye to beloved Vipers owner Duncan Wray - Vernon Morning Star

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Andrew, Nicholas and Alexander right by Erica’s side as she talked about how her father taught her about kindness and love.Ferner, who apologized for writing his speech on the bus trip home from Prince George early Saturday morning, told stories about Wray being a consummate prankster. Wray once penned a fake press release from the BCHL to Ferner which stated that all coaches had to wear helmets at practice sessions.“I gathered the players at centre ice and told them that if anybody laughed at my helmet, I’d trade them,” quipped Ferner. “Duncan got me.”Viper grad Rob Short, whose number 20 hangs from the Kal Tire rafters, scores of current past team volunteers, Lis and former Vernon Laker trainer Vic Chenier and bus driver Jim Reed were also at the arena service.A private funeral was held Saturday morning at a Vernon church. Orland Kurtenbach, the first captain in Vancouver Canuck history, was in attendance. Kurtenbach, a former BCHL ambassador and coach, now lives at Predator Ridge Golf Resort.Ex-Viper captain Chris Crowell, who welcomed a baby boy to his world Thursday morning, made the trip from Kamloops for the church service. His number 18 was also retired by Wray.Under Duncan’s watch, the Vipers claimed four Royal Bank Cup national titles and six Fred Page Cup league championships. He was inducted into the B.C. Hockey Hall of Game in 2011 and his 1999 RBC-winning Vipers team joined the same shrine last year. Wray, a retired oral surgeon, was a key member of the BCHL board of governors.@VernonNewsnewstips@vernonmorningstar.comLike us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter. Let's block ads! (Why?)...

Community mourns doctor who put focus on health care in the north - CBC.ca

Thursday, April 12, 2018

A doctor who spent decades working to improve health care in northern British Columbia is being mourned after he died Tuesday night.Dr. Bert Kelly was a "tireless champion for health care" said Prince George city councillor Susan Scott, who announced his passing via Facebook.Kelly was a key architect of the Northern Medical Program, in which students in UBC's medical program are trained in northern B.C. in an effort to help recruit and retain future medical professionals in a region that historically has been underserved.Faced with chronic doctor shortages in Prince George and the surrounding area, Kelly helped lead a local group of physicians and specialists in what was effectively a strike in 2000, withdrawing non-essential services until the province agreed to commit more funding and efforts to recruitment and retention of doctors in the north. By 2004 the Northern Medical Program was opened, with Kelly serving the role of Executive Director of the Northern Medical Society.Truly sad this morning at the loss of Dr. Bert Kelly! He was a difference maker and a catalyst for change in our community and province! I was honoured to work with him. Our thoughts...

Ex-football player tackling cancer - Prince George Citizen

Thursday, September 14, 2017

Children's Wish Foundation by medical staff at B.C. Children's Hospital.They had a great time together and the holiday came at just the right time, after so many trips back and forth to hospitals in Prince George and Vancouver for procedures to save his leg from amputation.But on Dec. 15, the pain returned and the McLeods got the news they all feared. Jake's tumours had grown back in several places in his right leg from the knee down and he required immediate surgery to remove them."Sure it was a shock but it was just something I knew was going to happen," said Jake, 17. "It was a little bit of a letdown but I fully expected it."It's a roller-coaster ride, you don't know what's going to happen. One moment life's going fine, the next moment you need to go to Vancouver - something's wrong with you." His doctors had warned him of that likelihood when they diagnosed his condition, known as soft-tissue sarcoma (fibromatosis), an aggressive form of cancer which affects just one or two out of every million people in the world. Considering his age and the location of the cancer, the average time for his tumours to grow back following surgery is just three months. Jake joined the Condors junior team in Grade 9 and in his four seasons playing football the team dealt with more than its share of tragedies. Four of the players lost their mothers - three to cancer and one because of a heart attack - while Pearce's death left Condors running back/safety Colburn Pearce without a father. "These boys are really good friends, they've been to more than one funeral for each other's parents and they're like family," said Carrie McLeod. "If he could play, they would find a way to let him play. You can't ask for a better support network if you're teenager fighting a really rare battle." Jake, who turns 18 on Oct. 31, graduated in June from Duchess Park and now attends the College of New Caledonia, studying computer network electronic technology. He works part-time at Starbucks in College Heights and volunteers for the Ca...

Mary has been giving back since '76 - Prince George Citizen

Tuesday, April 4, 2017

Chilliwack where she eventually met and married Andy (Bob) Jarbek who was born and raised in Chilliwack. In 1974, the young couple moved to Nova Scotia. Representatives from the pulp mills in Prince George flew to Nova Scotia and were interviewing people qualified to work in their pulp mills. Andy was a qualified pipe fitter, he had family in the city and he needed work so they moved to Prince George in 1976 with the hope of finding work and to start a new life. Andy was hired at P.G. Pulp the same day that he arrived in Prince George. Mary said, "We were told that Prince George was a vibrant and growing city with great opportunities. We came here with hope and excitement and we were not disappointed. "The second day that we were here I went down town to check out our new city. I happened to walk into the Town Talk Uniform Store (next to Northern Hardware) and found a lady sitting at the counter crying. "To make a long story short, she was the owner of the store, lived in Kamloops and had come to Prince George to attend the funeral of her store manager who was also a close friend. It had been a sudden death so by the time she made the trip to Prince George she wasn't able to arrange for someone to watch over the store while she attended the funeral. "I felt so ...

A reflective Father Bob Haggarty looks back on his time in Lillooet - Bridge River Lillooet News

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Originally from Alberta, Father Bob was ordained in 1971 as a priest in the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate (OMI). The Order was founded in 1816 and has had a presence in British Columbia since 1858. The apostolic Oblates focused on outreach to remote and/or wilderness areas, which B.C. was at the time of the Gold Rush. “The Oblates were there, right at the beginning of the colonization of B.C.,” adds Father Bob, who says those early priests were so young that they were described as altar boys. He can quote the early history of the Oblates in B.C. chapter and verse, but is also fascinated by Canadian military history. He says that’s related to one of his mother’s brothers, who went overseas with the RCAF during the Second World War and was killed in action. “My mother had all these letters and pictures but had no time to organize them. But I thought, ‘If we don’t value his contributions, who’s going to?’ He sacrificed his life for this country, so I felt I owed him that and so I took every photo and every scrap of paper and put them in order.” After he began living here, Father Bob became intrigued by the history of local veterans, particularly the “Boys of Lillooet” whose names are inscribed on the cenotaph on the lawn outside the District Office. “I said to myself, ‘Who are you? Who are you?’” He then spent years researching their lives and eventually produced two volumes (World War One and World War Two) of priceless biographical material - old black and white and sepia photos, precious personal letters written from the front lines, military records and his own conversations with their siblings and other family members - that preserves the memory of the “Boys of Lillooet” for posterity. “Those fellows grew up here, lived within a five or 10-mile radius of downtown Lillooet and they never came back,” he says softly. “I thought they should be remembered and we should be proud of them.” Father Bob believes “history is made up of local people. It’s more than what Prince Charles has done. It’s people who are walking down the street. There’s history there, too.” He continues, “And it’s a good story if you go back and find out what happened. I remember hearing an interview with Mark Forsythe on the CBC and he was coming to Lytton for a public forum on the Gold Rush. It was also about the opening up of the Lillooet area and it was an eye-opener, too. I believe in history and I like to know history. I think the history of Lillooet makes you appreciate the place where you live. And for visitors, so much of B.C.’s history took place within a half mile of here.” He says, “Sometimes I’ll go down to Seton Lake and just sit there and I’ll ask people who are visiting for the day if they know where they are and what happened here. It makes it more interesting for them if they know some of the local history.” Father Bob acknowledges he’s “dealing with the reality of being a senior” and some health challenges involving his eyesight, but hopes to continue living here. “Why would I want to leave Lillooet?” he asks. “The environment here...
