Sullivan, Larry Benedict, (April 4, 2017) - Lambton ShieldFriday, April 21, 2017
Ontario and Midland Michigan; with cherished summers spent at Sullivan’s Bay on Lake Matinenda in Blind River Ontario. Larry was predeceased in 2006 by his wife of fifty years, Colleen Cleary of Wallaceburg (aka Cleary, Dalton, O’Connor, and the Dorsey gang etc), as well his parents James and Mary Sullivan, sister Dorothy (Ernie) Fillion, and his special close cousin Mac McCabe. Just three weeks before his 90th birthday, Larry died peacefully surrounded by his five children; Cathy (Edward) Johnson, Kevin Sullivan, Maureen Sullivan, Ann Marie (Carl) Sullivan-Wahlstrom and Erin (Michael) Maroney. Cherished as “grandpa” by Wendy, Krista, Kelly, Aaron, Ryan, Casey, Darcy, Daniel, McKayla, Kavenaugh, Tarynn and great-grandfather of Taylor, Grace, Ava, Kaydence, Payton, Ben and William. He will also be lovingly remembered by many nieces, nephews, and friends including those met during the many years of wintering in Orlando. On top of a 37 year career at Dow Chemical Larry loved tinkering, nature, singing Irish tunes, dancing, and would tell the occasional joke. We’d like to invite his family and friends to join him in one last shindig at SMITH FUNERAL HOME, 1576 London Line, Sarnia, on Friday April 7th from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. A mass o...
A poignant funeral procession; truckers convoy for John Culp - Pembroke Daily ObserverWednesday, December 14, 2016
The eulogy was delivered by son David Culp. Culp’s other son, Drew Culp, read a poem while daughter Stephanie Culp shared with the congregation her thoughts on her father’s life.
Culp, a native of Wallaceburg, Ontario, began in the trucking industry in 1978 forming the company J.W. Culp Trucking. In 1981, its name changed to Nanjac Transportation Incorporated.
“John passed away suddenly at the age of 63 doing what he loved, trucking,” stated a obituary for Culp published by Zohr Funeral Home. “He passed in his truck with his beloved wife of 37 years, Nancy, near by. He will be greatly missed by his extended family and community, but we take comfort in knowing he is with his beloved Jesus.”

At WDSS, Kraayenbrink was known as a strong student, who was also a standout on the football field. He won the Vermette Award in his final season, which goes to the graduating player who has had the greatest contribution to the football team in their career.
Kraayenbrink was also on the WDSS engineering team that finished in second place at the Chatham-Kent Professional Engineers of Ontario high school engineering competition in 2015.
Nathan Outridge has been a classmate of Kraayenbrink's since Grade 7. They both attended Riverview Central and WDSS. Outridge is a second-year business student at University of Windsor.
“Really smart kid, really nice, just a really kind soul,” Outridge said about Kraayenbrink. “Didn't care about himself. He cared more about others.”
Outridge said Kraayenbrink helped out his classmates, including himself, whenever they needed help understanding a concept or question.
'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...
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...

— 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...
