EDWARD BRUCE PARKER
January 2, 1947 - July 29, 2004
Bruce Parker's family announce his sudden, peaceful, passing on Wednesday, July 29, 2004. The family invited his colleagues and friends to join them in a celebration of his life on Tuesday, August 3, 2004 at 2:00 p.m. at St. Andrew's United Church on the corner of Kingsway Ave. and Oak St..
Bruce was an oxymoron. A sometimes gruff, businesslike manner masked a much gentler, compassionate disposition. This compassion and propensity for doing what was 'right' is a quality that his family admired, felt deeply, and will miss greatly. He was a cornerstone, 'the rock', of a family journey that has been served up many twists and turns, and he has fostered in each member, a continued commitment to support one another on this path.
Bruce was committed to his community. His community efforts began in his youth, initially, perhaps, not by choice; he became involved in a youth outreach program operated through Knox United Church. It was here, working with other youth that Bruce's leadership qualities surfaced.
He would become president of Kelvin during his high school years and senior stick (president) of the student association during his time at the University of Winnipeg.
Bruce chose law as his career, and for his entire professional career practiced with Aikins MaCaulay and Thorvaldson. He had a deep regard for the status this afforded him and used his position to continue to support the many communities with which he was associated. A few of the associations that brought him deep satisfaction were Riverview Community Centre where his daughters, Lindsay and Jessica, were actively involved in the sports programs, Villa Rosa which allowed his continued support for community youth, and the United Way.
Bruce loved to fish. His years spent at Lake of the Woods would manifest the joy he discovered in a man in a boat on the water. Later, he would take this passion with him to Mexico.
An extreme love of Mexico, the landscape, and the people was nurtured in Bruce through the numerous family vacations and fishing trips taken in Mexico. He again would turn this connection into an opportunity to use his professional skills and turn his passion into a commitment, becoming the honorary representative of the Mexican Consul in Manitoba.
Bruce wished the family to express his deep gratitude for the serenity he had found over the last eight years of his life, which he acknowledged as a true gift from God brought to him through AA. He did speak of his departure and let those closest to him know that if the path he had to take would be the shorter, rather than the longer he would be leaving peaceful and fulfilled. For each of you who contributed to this peace the family is grateful.
Bruce is survived by his loving wife Lourdes, who contributed greatly to the recent contentment he had found, his loving daughters Lindsay and Jessica ("We'll miss you Pops") and their mother Cindy, his siblings Ian (Jacqueline), Brian, Wendy (Fred), Shirley (Ernie), Linda (Raffaele), sister-in-law, Debbie Whitney and eleven nieces and nephews. His father, Hugh, mother Beverly, and brothers Casey and Ben predeceased him.
The family extends their sincere gratitude to those that supported Bruce and provided medical care during his illness.
In keeping with his wishes, in lieu of flowers, to celebrate Bruce's life the family encourages anyone who desires to make a donation to an organization that is meaningful for them, or any of the organizations with which he was personally involved.

KEN R. WALSH
After a courageous battle with COPD, Ken passed away on July 20th at Deer Lodge Centre.
His memory will be cherished by loving wife of 49 years, Lillian, and children Barry (Wendy) granddaughter Katie; and Scott (Brenda). He is also survived by three sisters and two brothers, several nieces and nephews and extended family in Ontario, Quebec and Manitoba.
Ken was born in Bathurst, NB on February 5,1925 and grew up in Montreal.
He served 25 years in the Armed Forces, including 4 years overseas in World War II, Korea, and Egypt. Following his retirement from the military, he enjoyed 11 years with Scotiabank.
Ken and Lillian spent 10 wonderful years in Mission BC., and returned to Winnipeg in 1997. The past seven years, living at The Courts of St. James, have been very special to them.
Ken loved to laugh and had a sense of humour which didn't diminish, even in his last hours.
In keeping with Ken's wishes, cremation has taken place. A celebration of his life was held at 2:00 p.m. Tuesday, July 27 at Neil Bardal Inc., 984 Portage Avenue, Aubrey Street entrance.
For those who wish, donations can be made in Dad's memory to the Manitoba Lung Association, 629 McDermot Ave., Winnipeg MB R3A 1P6.

H. ALLAN (AL) JOHNSTON
Peacefully, with family at his side, H. Allan (Al) Johnston died Saturday, September 11, 2004 in Deer Lodge Centre.
Al was born in the original Winnipeg Children's Hospital on November 20, 1919 the only child of Edward J. Johnston (died 1935) and Vera (Tod) (died 1949). He is survived by his beloved wife Margaret (Colven) and stepdaughter Dolores (Fonseca) Haggarty. (Of whose achievements he was extremely proud.) He will be sadly missed by five grandchildren, Elena, Diana, Jennifer, Christopher and Jeremy and seven great grandchildren. In addition, Al is survived by sisters-in-law Jean Mayfield (Los Angeles) and Marjorie Colven (Lindsay, ON.) and by sister and brother-in-law, Helena and Alex Conn (Burnaby, BC). Al is also survived by several cousins in Canada and the US.
After graduating from Kelvin High School, Al joined the Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders Reserve. After the Second World War was declared, he transferred to the Airforce where he trained as a Radar Technician. Based in England at various RAF stations, he was responsible for the Radar Unit, at that time a highly secretive British invention. When Al subsequently received an 'overseas' posting to RAF base Greenwood, N.S., he remustered to Aircrew and graduated as a Radar Navigator; after, he returned to England where he eventually joined the 406 Lynx Night Fighter Squadron at Manston, England. Al served there until the end of the European War. It should also be noted that he and his pilot were mentioned in dispatches. Al volunteered for the Japanese Front, but the conflict ceased before he could remuster. After returning to Canada, Al participated in ferrying Lancaster aircraft across Canada to home bases. He was honourably discharged in 1946 to the General Reserve.
Over his lifetime, Al maintained his military connection as a member of the Aircrew Association (U.K.) and the Airforce Association of Canada. He was a life member of the Wartime Pilots' and Observers' Association and an Associate Life Member of the Joint Veterans' Housing Society. He was also a member of the St. James Legion Branch No. 4 where he enjoyed many Tuesday luncheons with the 'boys;' he was a member of the Army, Navy and Air Force Veterans in Canada #283, a Founder Member of the Commonwealth Air Training Plan Museum (Brandon, MB) and a member in good standing of the Western Canada Aviation Museum.
Al spent his career in the field of electronics, working in various capacities travelling from Thunder Bay to Victoria; he joined the Northwest Commercial Traveller's Association in 1953 and remained a member throughout his life. As everyone knows, Al was an avid curler and spent many years sweeping rocks down the ice. For years he belonged to the West End club, curling out of the Thistle Curling Club. Later, he joined the Deer Lodge Curling Club; toward the end of his curling career, he curled with the Antlers group of seniors at Deer Lodge.
Although Al grew up in Cresentwood, he spent most his adult life in St. James. He and Margaret enjoyed their home on Fidler Ave. in Silver Heights for almost fifty years before moving into the Courts of St. James. For the past four years, Al had been residing in Deer Lodge Centre suffering from the debilitating effects of Parkinsons' Disease and other related illnesses. His final years and days were most difficult, but made more comfortable by the fact that his wife Margaret remained an almost daily companion until the moment he died. With that said, the family would like to extend deep appreciation to the staff at Deer Lodge Centre on Two South and Tower Seven for their care, kindness and support during Al's final years. Also we would like to thank the DVA for their support towards his care.
A private internment was held at St. John's Cathedral Cemetery; Rev. Susan Van Dreser attended with immediate family. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Al's memory to Ronald MacDonald House, 566 Bannatyne Ave., Winnipeg, MB R3A 0G7. Dearest Allie Without you, life has no meaning or purpose. Thank you for 52 wonderful years of marriage I will miss you forever Love, Margaret
