Former Port Hope resident, Devil's Brigade veteran Charlie Mann dies - Northumberland NewsFriday, February 17, 2017
NORTHUMBERLAND — Known for his service in the elite First Special Service Force, former Port Hope resident Charlie Mann died in Kincardine.
Mann, who was born and raised in Port Hope, died on Jan. 28. His funeral was on Feb. 4.
Mann was born in a house on John Street in Port Hope on June 30, 1922, said retired Cobourg Collegiate Institute West history teacher Michal Loeprich, who spent about 10 years meeting with and compiling a binder about Mann for her students. After Mann’s father died in 1933, the family was poverty-stricken and lost their home. Mann joined the militia in 1937 to earn cash, she said.
He would later become a member of the First Special Service Force, an elite military unit with both Canadian and U.S. members, known as the Devil’s Brigade. The Brigade members were known to be tough men with training in parachuting, skiing, mountain climbing and hand-to-hand combat in the Second Wor...

PORT HOPE - For those who have experienced the loss of a loved one or family member, the festive holiday season can be a difficult time to get through.
A quiet evening to remember and celebrate the lives and memories of those who have been lost comes on Dec. 7, as St. Paul's Presbyterian Church in Port Hope hosts its third annual O Holy Night service.

Brown is also pleased that John Kennedy Saynor can be part of the service.

— 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 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...
