Crematorium proposed for Simcoe - Simcoe ReformerFriday, February 17, 2017
Duesling said Tuesday. “We just want to make sure we’ve covered everything.”Bradfield took notice last year when the former Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses on Blue Line Road near Port Dover came up for sale. The former school house is located next to the Port Dover Cemetery and is zoned for a crematorium.Bradfield thought about making a move but decided that would be problematic.He said families tend to be quite spiritual and emotional when a loved one passes on. Bradfield said some potential customers would have been put off by the fact that another religion used the building before it became a crematorium.“It wasn’t satisfactory because it was used by a religious sect already,” Bradfield said. “To some, it would continue to have the spirits of the Jehovah’s Witnesses in the walls. The place I’m looking at is much more neutral to everybody.”The walls of the proposed building are 14” thick while the roof is 10” thick. Bradfield says it was built as a shooting range for soldiers.As a monument maker, Bradfield has had many years to think about funerals and bereavement. If he receives the green light, his plan could have a major impact on after-life services.Bradfield is working with researchers at McMaster University in Hamilton to apply microwave technology to the cremation process.Cremations are energy-intensive because the human body is 60 percent water. The break-through Bradfield has in mind would steam off the moisture before cremation. This would clear the way for a much more efficient incineration of remains.“It’s a revolutionary idea,” Bradfield said. “It’s going to change the funeral industry.”Cremation has become an increasingly important funerary option in recent years. Norfolk’s community services department says the cremated remains of 59 individuals were interred at Oakwood Cemetery in Simcoe last year versus 55 full burials.MSonnenberg@postmedia.com Let's block ads!

Robert attended Simcoe High School on the trolley, Waterloo University, and Teacher’s College, before beginning his teaching career at Port Dover Public School. He awaited the opening of the new Doverwood Public School in 1967, teaching classes at Doan’s Hollow and Potash schools. A dedicated Physical Education Teacher, he coached all of the local athletes for 34 years; leading as Vice Principal, and retiring from South School in Simcoe. Together, he and Mary toured Europe on several River Cruises, out of the way itineraries on their beloved small-ship Azamara Cruises, Rocky Mountaineer, and boating the Rideau, Trent Severn, and all around the lake in their cruiser MAROBY. A staunch Port Dover supporter, Robert was a member of the Port Dover Lions Club, The Oldtimer’s Hockey team, Grace United Church Board, Simcoe Curling Club, and proud Commodore of the Port Dover Yacht Club. Biking and walking were a passion: he and Mary strolled to the pier constantly, to check out both the water and the bikini action on the beach. He loved woodworking, and crafted many pieces of fine furniture and keepsakes for his family.

Judith OverbaughTuesday, December 20, 2016
Overbaugh, Judith Kathryn (nee Locke) – May 27, 1940 to Dec 13, 2016
Judy Overbaugh, of Port Dover, Ontario, died both suddenly, and naturally, in her home town of Paris, Ontario. Predeceased by her husband Stan Overbaugh (2014), Judy is survived by their two children, Brett Overbaugh (Penny Beattie), Shawna Goodchild (Steve), and two grandchildren, Samantha & Amara Beattie.
Judy also leaves behind her five siblings, Curtis Locke (Ann), Debbie Flewelling (Ed), Greg Locke, Mary Sawicki (Dale), and Rob Locke (Lori), and many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by her parents John (Stella) and Louise.
Her siblings would probably attest that Judy was a rather adept student of drama at Paris District High School, winning several best actress awards, of which she was particularly proud. She had a penchant for drama throughout her life; which, when combined with her clever sense of humour, kept us well stocked with laughter for many years. A top notch student, Judy was enrolled in London Teacher’s college. Part way through, Judy met her true love, Stan in Port Dover Ontario.

— 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...
Appeal ends, nearly $6000 raised - Sault StarThursday, 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...
'They lost their goalie': Don Mills Flyers pay tribute to murder victim Roy Pejcinovski in emotional return to the ice - Toronto StarThursday, 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...
