Cornwall and Area Death Notices - Cornwall Seaway NewsThursday, April 12, 2018
Faith Marie Mill, in December 1954. Returning to Canada from Europe in 1954 he served in the Overseas Ferry Unit, flying small single-engined fighters across the Atlantic to Europe from Longeueil, Quebec. Postings through the late 50s and early 60s saw him training the RCAF’s (and NATO’s) growing cadre of pilots in Portage la Prairie, Saskatoon and Gimli. His experience with accident investigation within the Flight Safety Directorate in Ottawa from 1965-68 helped initiate safety procedures that dramatically brought down the accident rate amongst new jet pilots. After a year’s study in Staff College in Kingston and operational training in Chatham and Cold Lake, Bruce Burgess returned to Europe, commanding 441 and 439 reconnaissance squadrons flying CF-104s in Germany and studying with the Royal Air Force Warfare College at RAF Manby in 1972. Returning to the Air Requirements Directorate in Ottawa from 1973-77, he helped shepherd the acquisition of the next generation of CF-18 (hornet) fighter aircraft. Highlights of his later career include Base Commander at CFB Comox (1977-80), Defense Attache in London (1980-82), Chief of Staff Air Force Operations, Winnipeg (1982-84) and Deputy Chief of Staff of Operations at Aerospace Defense Command in Colorado Springs (1984-87). He was awarded the Order of Military Merit in 1984, supplementing his earlier Special Service Medal (NATO-OTAN) and Canadian Decoration. He retired with Faith to Lancaster, Ontario in 1987. Bruce Burgess was a citizen airman who lived life with integrity, humility, humour, a strong sense of responsibility and a profound commitment to Canada. The warmth of his personality, his dedication to duty, his courage and his charm enriched us all. The funeral will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday April 7, 2018 at St. Andrew’s and Knox Church, 21102 Concession Road 2, S. Glengarry, Bainsville, Ontario. The family will receive visitors on Friday April 6, 2018 from 2 to 4 p.m., and from 7 to 9 p.m., at the Munro & Morris Funeral Home, 46 Oak Street, Lancaster (613-347-3629). www.munromorris.comDORAIS, Monique (Dufort) - At the Glengarry Memorial Hospital, Alexandria on Monday, March 26, 2018.
