Allen McMannMcMANN, Allen – March 22, 2019 at the Norfolk General Hospital, with his wife Jackie at his side. David Allen Lewis McMann was born in 1937 and grew up on a farm on the outskirts of Port Dover, moving to town with his family in 1949. As a teenager in Port Dover, he began his 38-year career with Canada Post, first sorting mail and finally as long-time senior assistant (Port Dover) and postmaster (Jarvis, 1981-1990). Allen may be best remembered for his ever-polite, gentlemanly manner, his passion for fiddle playing, and his pastime as purveyor of Country Candy's much-loved candy floss and apples, a business he inherited from in-laws Harry and Gibby Rolston. Allen was happiest playing his "little red fiddle," first with the Country Driftwoods in the 1960s, and more recently with the Country Snowbirds near his winter home in Largo, Florida. Even beset by Alzheimer's, Allen remembered his fiddle tunes and smiled as he played. In earlier years, Allen and fellow St. John's Ambulance attendant Charlie Bridgwater ran Port Dover's first ambulance service from 1955-1960, working day and night with a cast of volunteers, providing first aid to the town's injured and ill and rushing victims to hospital.

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!

‘Write me soon. Stay safe’: A story of Canada’s opioid crisis, told in letters from prison - The Globe and MailWednesday, March 27, 2019
At her home in Guelph, Ont., Moira Barber lays out one of the letters between her common-law husband, Albert (Manie) Daniels, and Spencer Kell, his old cellmate at Ontario's Maplehurst prison. Tijana Martin/The Globe and Mail When Spencer Kell got out of jail last spring, leaving his cellmate Manie Daniels behind, the two friends started exchanging letters. Mr. Daniels's, written in flowing cursive script, came to Mr. Kell in Ottawa, where he was trying to stay clean and build a new life. Mr. Kell's, in bold block letters, arrived at Maplehurst prison in Milton, Ont., where Mr. Daniels was serving out the final months of his latest stretch behind bars. Their brief correspondence shines a light on the dangers that former prisoners face in the midst of Canada's opioids crisis. Mr. Daniels's full name was Albert Joseph Daniels. His Cree name was Little Buffalo that Runs Against the Herd. His mother and sisters called him Manie – little man – because he was the only boy in the family. Story continues below advertisement He was torn away from his home on Saskatchewan's Peepeekisis First Nation to be educated in church-run res...
