Obituary: John Armstrong, successful businessman and accomplished fly fisherman - The ScotsmanFriday, June 02, 2017
Firstbase Timber, Timber Frameworks and Integral Arm. John Frederick Cunningham Armstrong was born in Glasgow on December 29, 1939, living first in Sandyford Place and later in Redlands Terrace, Kelvindale, just off the Great Western Road. During the war, he was evacuated to Gargunnock, outside Stirling, where his father ran a hospital for war evacuees on the Buchanan estate around Drymen. He went to primary school in St Andrews before attending Merchiston Castle School in Edinburgh, leaving after his O-Levels to become a trainee mechanical engineer on Clydeside. In 1963, he completed a five-year training apprenticeship with Albion Motors in Glasgow, qualifying as a mechanical engineer within the Leyland group, which quickly recognised that his skills went beyond engineering and that he was a natural salesman and businessman. He would spend many years with British Leyland, culminating as managing director for East Africa, before foreign competition gave British car workers and management a much-needed wake-up call.As a fisherman, Mr Armstrong recalled once fishing with his big brother Bill at the Manse Pool on the Spey at Castle Grant when he heard a huge splash and turned to look for a large fish. All he saw was his brother’s floppy hat floating on the surface. Bill had stepped back off the high bank into the deep pool but soon surfaced unscathed to Jock’s relief and, it must be said, unbridled mirth.Mr Armstrong’s pioneering spirit was evident during his work in Kenya. He once persuaded the pilot of the company plane to fly him and his wife Evie high over Mount Kilimanjaro. So high, in fact, that both Jock and Evie passed out from lack of oxygen but fortunately the pilot remained conscious. Jock Armstrong passed away at his home in Bearsden, two years after being diagnosed with terminal cancer, a fact that he accepted with the same positive outlook with which he had lived his healthy life.He is survived by his wife Evie (née McKell, originally from Bearsden), their sons Crawford and Jim, daughter Karen, grandchildren Jodie, Cameron, Tallulah, Oscar, Joss, Martha and Libby, and his elder brother Bill.PHIL DAVISONLet's block ads!

Nanaimo remembers educator, activist and elder 'Auntie Ellen' - Nanaimo News BulletinWednesday, March 27, 2019
Ellen White, Kwulasulwut, died Tuesday at age 95, and her funeral was held Saturday morning at the Beban Park Social Centre.
White was a member of the Order of Canada and the Order of British Columbia and her obituary remembers her as an "educator, cultural knowledge keeper, author, linguist, herbalist, healer, traditional midwife, and political activist and advocate."
She was one of the founders of the Tillicum Haus Aboriginal Friendship Centre and was an elder-in-residence in Vancouver Island University's First Nations studies program.
"She possessed a pure, kind and radiant heart," said Les Malbon, who described himself as one of White's adopted grandchildren as he delivered her eulogy Saturday.
White's name, Kwulasulwut, translates to ‘many stars' and Malbon alluded to that as he addressed the people gathered in the social centre.
"I look out now and I see the many stars," he said. "I see how she impacted the community. I see how much she loved her family and I appreciated, personally, how much that love changed me and how it's changed all of us to be better people and behoove us to be kind to one another and to work towards a world of unity."
Malbon said the White home was always filled with visitors, and Ellen White also travelled to meet people and sh...
