Respected business leader will be remembered for his energy, enthusiasm - The North Bay Nugget

Tuesday, December 27, 2016

North Bay Economic Development Commission from 1996 to 2003 and worked hard to raise funds on a yearly basis for the North Bay Regional Health Centre and One Kids Place. Minogue was president of Callander Bay Developments and Osprey Links Golf Course. Minogue also will be remembered for his business savvy. He was founder of Coldwell Banker Peter Minogue Real Estate and owner of Morland Appraisals. “Dad worked hard for what he had,” Brad Minogue said Monday. “He wasn't given anything. He built his career and his business.” Minogue also made time for the simple things in life like joining friends for an afternoon at the North Bay Golf and Country Club and Osprey Links Golf Club. Minogue was inducted into the North Bay Sports Hall of Fame in 2008 and skipped a number of winning curling teams, nearly making it to the Brier on more than one occasion. Former Ontario premier Mike Harris said he was shocked to learn of his best friend's death. “I'm very proud to call Peter my best friend,” Harris told The Nugget during a telephone interview Monday evening. “He was competitive. Whether it was during a game of marbles or ping pong, he always liked to win. He was a football and basketball star and played a great game of curling and golf.” Harris said he met Minogue while playing for opposite playground hockey teams in North Bay and became close friends in high school. “Neither one of us were amazing hockey players. Peter was the better bridge player, but I was the better fisherman,” Harris laughed. “Peter cooked the best pickerel. It was his secret recipe and that I can't share.” Minogue was husband to Barbara for 47 years, father to Brad, Becky and Alix Minogue and grandfather to Connor and Brock. A celebration of Minogue's life will take place at the Osprey Links club house on May 20. Donations in his memory can be made to the North Bay Regional Health Centre. Funeral arrangements are entrusted to Martyn Funeral Home. Online condolences can be made at www.martynfh.com               Let's blo...

Mississauga Expo looks at ways to reduce deceased's environmental impact after death - Mississauga

Friday, November 4, 2016

Included are discussions about hosting home funerals and a talk from the Green Burial Society of Canada while Unitarian Congregation in Mississauga lay chaplain Debbi Callander will talk about her experience in co-creating meaningful celebrations of life and memorials. Also part of the event is a Death Café. It’s for people to come together over tea, coffee and deserts to talk about death and isn’t a counselling service but a place for discussion. There will also be an appearance by Singing Through Life. It’s a choir that sings to provide comfort to the dying and their families during the last moments of life. “Can you imagine how beautiful it would be to have a choir sing to you as you go over to the other side?” said Newman. Also part of the expo is thanadoula Barb Phillips. The thanadoula gives emotional and spiritual support to the dying and their families and helps navigate the process while providing comfort. Admission is pay-what-you-can. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, including a schedule, visit www.naturaldeathexpo.ca. Let's block ads! (Why?)...

'They lost their goalie': Don Mills Flyers pay tribute to murder victim Roy Pejcinovski in emotional return to the ice - Toronto Star

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Flyers and Marlboros.  (Vince Talotta / Toronto Star)Pejcinovski was a promising prospect in next year’s Ontario Hockey League draft. “We remember him as a teammate and friend,” West said, urging the boys to “sit together, support each other, and keep playing the game.” And they did, but with a twist. The two teams tossed their sticks into pile at centre ice — with no discernible divide between Flyers and Marlboros. Players picked sticks at random, shuffling them like a deck of cards into two new teams.They then peeled their rival jerseys and put on new ones, black or white with a capital “R,” for Roy, in burgundy. The colour in the boys’ socks — orange and black for the Flye...

Appeal ends, nearly $6000 raised - Sault Star

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Hunter Chamberlain and their son, Bentley, died last Tuesday. Their SUV, northbound on Highway 69 near Parry Sound, crossed the centre line and collided with a transport. The SUV caught fire. Ontario Provincial Police have not released the names of the deceased pending identification by Ontario Centre of Forensic Sciences. Whitehead's best friend, Rebecca Chapman, launched a GoFundMe appeal (https://www.gofundme.com/help-support-jodey-whitehead) on Friday to help Victoria's mother, Jodey Whitehead, pay for funeral costs. Her goal was $2,000. That target was exceeded by more than 50 per cent within 24 hours with $3,186 donated by 66 contributors by 10 a.m Saturday. By Sunday afternoon, the tally grew to $5,980 from 136 donors. In an update, Chapman thanked donors and said the appeal was finished. “As per request by the family, I will be closing donations and taking the funds to them,” she said. “They decided that this is an overwhelming, but very appreciated amount of support, and that they would like me to close the fund as we have reached nearly $6,000.”Many donors offered their condolences about the trio's death. “My heart goes out to anyone impacted by this tragedy,” said Danielle Heatley. “I can't imagine the pain of losing a child and grandchild,” said MaryClaire Wood in a post. “I pray you find the strength to deal with this terrible loss.“Thanks to everyone for their generosity,” said Jonathan White...

Brockville area joins in mourning - Brockville Recorder and Times

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Humboldt later this week. https://t.co/DvpAsm2Ybw#HumboldtStrong#PutYourStickOut#XBRpic.twitter.com/h2EyHhQjrj — City of Brockville (@BrockvilleON) April 9, 2018Organizations across Ontario were paying tribute to the victims of last week’s fatal bus crash.The bus carrying the junior hockey team to a playoff game collided with a semi truck in northeast Saskatchewan on Friday, killing 15 people and leaving 14 others injured.The fatalities included 10 young teammates, ranging in age from 15 to 21, and five team personnel. Like many people across the country, the Wilsons placed a hockey stick on their porch in what has become a universal tribute to the lost players.The book of condolences is the product of city staff’s collaboration with Brockville’s Irvine Funeral Home.The tragedy also hit close to home for Mike Galbraith, a funeral director at Irvine who helped coordinate the book of condolences.“As a hockey dad, as a parent, as a funeral director, I can appreciate the chaos that’s going on,” he said.“Sometimes, people need an outlet.”Signing a book of condolences is a small way of confronting the powerlessness one feels in the wake of such a tragedy, said Galbraith.“This one’s kind of near and dear to the heart,” he added.“If I had the means and the time, I would fly out there today on a plane and help them out.”The Brockville Braves plan on contributing one dollar from every ticket sold to Tuesday’s Game at the Memorial Centre to a crowdsourcing fund for the victims. Galbraith said another version of the book of condolences will be set up at the arena ahead of that game.“It will all be added to one and sent off at the end of the week,” he added.Some 30 people had signed the city hall book as of mid-afternoon Monday, as word of the tribute began slowly to spread.Some of the people signing came from out of town, including Prescott, Mallorytown, Delta and Kingston.All of the local signatures and messages will be conveyed to Humboldt city hall.Elsewhere locally, organizers of the Brockville Winter Classic Weekend used their Facebook account to post tributes to the Broncos and a link to the crowdsourcing page.Brockville Mayor David Henderson said the scope of the tragedy extends beyond the world of hockey.“I think it wa...
