DAVISON, (Lewis) Stuart
(Retired Ministry of Finance, Oshawa and Sunquest Vacations, Toronto; well known tenor soloist in GTA & Durham Region; Past Grand Patron for Ontario of O.E.S. (1970/71)
Peacefully, on Monday, September 3, 2007 at Quinte Health Care Centre, Bancroft. Stuart closed his eyes and went ahead to answer the call for a tenor soloist in God's choir. He is survived by his loving wife Gail, four stepchildren; Janet Cain (Ron); Michael Gordon (Jeri); Brian Davison; Scott Davison and four granddaughters; Elisabeth, Samantha, Amber and Jessica. He also leaves a daughter, Carole. In Northern Ireland Stuart leaves his beloved sister Molly and nieces Denise Beattie, Ethel Patton and husband Jim. Born in the town of Glengormley, near Belfast, Northern Ireland (and proud of it), Stuart and his former wife settled in Canada in 1957 but divorced some years later. He loved music above almost all else and was tenor soloist in many churches around the Toronto area and Durham Region. It was while serving as tenor soloist in the choir at Willowdale United Church that he met a soprano named Gail who had four children from her previous marriage. He later married Gail and thus became a husband and father all at one time. Not many men would take on the responsibilities of raising four young children with all the problems that entails but Stuart did. It was not easy but it was a decision neither he nor Gail ever regretted. Stuart's strong tenor voice was his greatest gift. He often said that God blessed him with his talent and that he always wanted to use it to sing His praise. He also had the gift of an incredible sense of humour and fun. He worked hard at his job but many times you could hear the sound of laughter echoing across the atrium of the Minstry of Finance, with Stuart's laugh being the heartiest. He was 'famous' for his Irish jokes (always clean) and enjoyed exchanging stories with friends any chance he had. After retiring from the government Stuart did not like being idle. He answered an ad for part-time work with Sunquest Vacations in Toronto where he spent seven happy years. He loved the people and the work and the respect with which he was treated. Many times he said he wished he could have spent his whole working life with Sunquest where he felt appreciated and valued. Stuart will be remembered by all who knew him as a kind, gentle and loving person. Relatives and friends will be received at the McINTOSH-ANDERSON FUNERAL HOME LTD., 152 King St. E., Oshawa (905-433-5558) on Wednesday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. A complete service will be held in the chapel on Thursday, September 6, 2007 at 1:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer Society in Stuart's memory
would be appreciated.
KIFT, John Albert “Harry”
Went peacefully to be with his Lord on September 3, 2007 at Lakeridge Health Oshawa after a courageous battle with cancer in his 82nd year. Beloved husband of Jean and cherished father of Jane Schultz (Nick), Susan Jull (Peter), Philip Kift (Edith) and Jennifer Gibson (John) and stepfather of Stephen Ashley (Diane), Mary Jane Aubie (Charles), Margot Shulist (Jim), Karen Ashley-Woo (Frank) and Elizabeth Hadley (Eric). Harry was a loving grandfather to 20 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren. He is survived by his sister Betty Harrison and brother Paul Kift. He is predeceased by his first wife Mamie (Calder) in 1980. Harry was a life long resident of Oshawa. After completing high school at O’Neil Collegiate, Harry served with the Royal Canadian Navy WWII. After the war he was an officer with the Ontario Provincial Police for a number of years. He joined General Motors Security and retired as Chief of Security for General Motors in 1982 after 33 years of service. Harry lived life close to the earth. Happiness was his tromping through the bush of Canada’s Wilderness – hunting, fishing, trapping and canoeing. His large market garden in his earlier years and many flower gardens since attest to his love and talent for horticulture. Harry was a master craftsman building his first home and subsequently 2 cottages. At 50 years old he obtained his pilots license, and enjoyed flying his cessna over Ontario’s lake country. For the past 20 years he derived great peace and inspiration as an active member of the Trulls Road Free Methodist Church. We will all miss him dearly. His enthusiasm was contagious and his story telling was renowned. Friends may call at the COURTICE FUNERAL CHAPEL Limited, 1587 Highway #2, Courtice, Ontario Thursday, September 6, 2007 from 2-4 and 7-9PM.
