Oshawa public school board trustee Larry Jacula dies - durhamregion.comTuesday, April 4, 2017
Oshawa that he represented so passionately and effectively."Barrett said the Durham school board is reeling after Jacula's loss which comes less than a month after the death of Uxbridge trustee Elinor Hansen who died on March 7 while undergoing cancer treatment.Both Barrett and Jacula represented Oshawa residents and Barrett said he was a good a friend."I didn't see Larry as just a colleague, he was my rock," explained the board chair, adding that Jacula was very visible in the community attending events and visiting schools. "I never had a problem walking in Larry's shadow because he cast a large shadow and there was comfort in that."He describes Jacula as a peacemaker who, as a retired teacher, always kept his focus on the children taught by the Durham school board."He always attempted to build bridges, even when angered, even when insulted he was always the first person to reach out a hand," said Barrett.
Jacula was also well known in the community for serving as the voice of the Oshawa Generals making announcements during games for 24 years until 2007.
He was a community volunteer serving as the chair of the board for the Centennial-Albert United Church and also volunteered in the past with Scouts Canada, City of Oshawa committees and served on the Oshawa Sports Hall of Fame selection committee.
John Hogg said he has known Jacula for 35 to 40 years. They were both teachers at the same time, though not at the same school, and then later served together on the hall of fame committee.He will remember Jacula for his sense of humour."Larry is one of those guys that enjoyed life, he used to do standup comedy sometimes at various places," he explained.He said Jacula will be remembered by the Oshawa sports community. He points out Jacula was a long-time Generals season ticket holder and was at a game just over two weeks ago.
"He had a long career and he was very interested in the sports scene in Oshawa and a strong supporter of the Oshawa Generals right until the end," he said.
Online, condolences included former students who called him a "fantastic teacher."
Jacula is survived by his wife of 50 years, Linda, and children Mark and Michael.
"He will be sorely missed on a personal level, on a board level, on a family level," said Barrett. "He was very tight with his family so my heart breaks for them all."

'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...

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.

— 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...
