Mitch Owens, former mayor of Gloucester, dead at 95 - CBC.ca

Wednesday, November 30, 2016

Mitch Owens, a municipal politician who served as mayor of the former municipality of Gloucester, has died at the age of 95. "His sharp mind, incredible storytelling, irreverent sense of humour, and easy laugh stayed with us to the end," his obituary said. ?Owens entered municipal politics in 1966 after retiring from the RCMP following a 20-year career, according to his obituary. Over 25 years he served as councillor, deputy reeve and mayor. In 1991, at the age of 70, he retired from municipal politics, splitting his time between a vacation home in Florida and his home on Mitch Owens Road, which was named after him by an order of council. Gloucester was amalgamated into the City of Ottawa in 2001. Owens died Thursday. Visitation will be held at McEvoy-Shields Funeral Home on Hunt Club Road from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday. His funeral mass will be held Tuesday at 11 a.m. at Our Lady of the Visitation Church in south Gloucester.  The flags at the Gloucester South Community Centre will be lowered to half-mast from sunrise to sunset on Tuesday for his funeral, the city anno...

Former Gloucester Mayor Mitch Owens dies at 95 | Ottawa & Region ... - Ottawa Sun

Wednesday, November 23, 2016

The robust and warm former mayor, councillor and reeve of Gloucester has died.  Mitch Owens, 95, held public office in what was then the City of Gloucester for over twenty years, but only after leading a "colourful" life said former Ottawa mayor Jim Durrell.  "He was very wise, because he had done stuff," said Durrell, who remembered fondly conversations and professional advice the much-older mayor offered in the 80s. "One can buy intelligence. But you cannot buy wisdom." Owens was born in 1921 in the small farming community of Hazelridge, Manitoba, which he left as a teenager during the Great Depression to "ride the rails," according to a notice placed by his family. He took on several jobs across the country — from short order cook, drugstore clerk to lumberjack in Northern Ontario — before enlisting with the RCMP in 1942.  More travelling came with his 21 years in the force, including three years stationed at Pond Inlet on Baffin Island, where he "developed a life-long affection for the land and for the Inuit peoples," his family said.

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...

'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...
