Unionville ON Obituaries and Funeral Related News
Harold's Blog: Trip to Markham, Economic Update and More - CaryCitizenThursday, September 14, 2017
United States. They have a huge presence in Europe in areas like Germany and of course in China.For lunch we visited an historic area of Markham called Unionville. A large number of the buildings in this area were around 100 years old or older. We actually ate lunch in a repurposed building that was at one time a funeral home. Most of the businesses on the main street of Unionville were restaurants and bars. The reason given for that was that it was too difficult to keep retail viable in the area with such small buildings.Later in the day we went to the new downtown center of Markham. This area was a mixed use made up of several high rises. The demand to live in this area created extremely high housing prices with condos going for over a million dollars. As Cary develops areas like the Eastern Gateway we must be careful not to create an environment that is unaffordable for most people.In the evening the group joined the Mayor of Markham for dinner. The Mayor from Markham, Nordlingen, and I all gave remarks. After the dinner the group revisited Unionville to a celebration in an outdoor theater. This was part of their three days of celebration.Saturday – Markham’s HistorySaturday began with a visit to Heritage Village of Markham. Markham puts a lot of value is their historic properties. So they decided to create a neighborhood made up of these properties. Structures of all ages and architectural styles were moved to this area, restored, and occupied. Signage was provided in little pocket parks for each street to give the history of each home. I thought this was an excellent idea that we should consider for Cary.Later Saturday mornin...

George YatesWednesday, February 08, 2017
Don at Yates & Yates Ontario Land Surveyors and PhotoMap Air Surveys. George, while modest, accomplished much; trustee and chair of two school boards in the 1960’s, chair of the Unionville Home Society Foundation and appointment to the Canadian Board of Examiners for Professional Surveyors (CBEPS).
When George retired in 1997, he started his second career providing back up emergency child care for his grandchildren, a task he handled with massive amounts of both love and patience.
George was a born and bred Torontonian. That, combined with his long career as an OLS meant that he knew every street from Lake Ontario to Lake Simcoe. He couldn’t go anywhere without running into someone he went to school with, did a survey for, or was related to.
He was a long-time member of the Albany Club and the Fitness Institute. He was actively involved in politics and was a dedicated Progressive Conservative (of the Red Tory variety) which led to many lively discussions with his some of his more left-leaning children and grandchildren. George was a devoted Catholic and a long-time parishioner of The Church of the Good Shepherd in Thornhill.
George loved Ray Charles and Oscar Peterson, beautiful clothes, red wine, Starbucks coffee, corned beef from the Centre Street Deli, extra old cheddar cheese, the Globe and Mail, the Toronto Blue Jays (and much to his chagrin) the Toronto Maple Leafs. He was a natural athlete, and continued his daily runs well into his late 70’s. He taught all of his kids, at a very young age, to both swim and play poker (which worked out pretty well) and tried desperately to teach those same kids math (which didn’t work out so well). He was a stone-skipper extraordinaire. You could put him anywhere in the world and he could tell you where due North was. George was the definition of a decent man, generous, fair, honest and courteous.
He was both gracious and graceful and always, always looked like a million bucks.
Visitation will be held at The Church of the Good Shepherd in Thornhill on Saturday, January 28 from 10 – 11am. The funeral Mass will take place at 11:00am with a reception to follow. George was a long-time supporter of Covenant House Toronto and if desired, donations may be directed to support their work for kids far less fortunate than his.
James HillTuesday, December 20, 2016
With sadness, we announce the sudden passing of Jim Hill of Unionville on December 13, 2016 at the age of 62. Jim passed away doing what he loved, playing hockey with his friends.

Clark Davey, 1928-2019: 'The true journalist of journalists' - Ottawa CitizenWednesday, March 27, 2019
He was heartbroken after failing his medical, but an English teacher told him that people would pay him to write. So he enrolled in the first journalism degree course taught at University of Western Ontario, graduating in 1948 and joining the newsroom of the Chatham Daily News.There, he worked under Richard "Dic" Doyle, but moved to Kirkland Lake when the Thomson newspaper chain made him editor-in-chief of the Northern Daily News. His time there was brief, however, as his girlfriend, Joyce Gordon, issued him an ultimatum: Northern Ontario or me. He chose her: they married in September 1952.In the meantime, he joined the newsroom of the Globe and Mail, where his mentor Doyle had been working for a year.As a reporter with the Globe, Davey covered national and international affairs, including the Suez Canal crisis, the St. Lawrence Seaway project and the cancellation of the Avro Arrow program. During the 1957 federal election campaign, he recognized that Tory leader John Diefenbaker was gaining momentum and might actually win, and convinced his editors to allow him to stay with the Chief's campaign for 40 days.

When Doyle became editor of the Globe in 1963, he chose Davey as his managing editor, and, according to Mills, the two raised the broadsheet's reputation from that of a local paper to a national one. Davey was managing editor for 15 years before joining the Vancouver Sun in 1978. He was publisher there until 1983, when he took over at the Gazette. He was publisher of the Citizen from 1989 to 1993. He was also president and chair of The Canadian Press, and co-founder and president of the Michener Awards Foundation that oversees the country's most prestigious journalism prize."He was the true journalist of journalists," says Kim Kierans, journalism professor at University of King's College in Halifax and Michener Foundation board member. "He told me when I last saw him in November, ‘If we're not providing the encouragement for journalism organizations and journalists within them to do the journalism that matters, then we're in trouble as a democracy.'"He was also a lovely man, smart and sparkling … with incredible enthusiasm for the business and its future."According to Mills, Davey, who in 2002 led a protest on the steps of the Ottawa Citizen after Mills was fired for running an editorial critical of then-prime minister Jean Chrétien, was known as tough and gruff, "but deep down he was a really kind and thoughtful person, and a very good friend who was always fair to people. But if you didn't know him, he could be intimidating."And although he called the shots on the job, it was Joyce who ruled the home roost. According to son Ric, his father only stopped the presses twice - once while at the Globe, when Joyce called him to report that she and Ric thought they had just seen a UFO."That was the kind of pull she had over him," says Ric.Clark Davey is survived by his wife, Joyce; brother Kenneth George; children Ric (Rita Celli), Kevin (Margaret) and Clark Jr. (...
