RONALD ARBUTHNOT – On Tuesday, September 1, 2020, Ronald Ian Arbuthnot, loving husband and father passed away peacefully in Westgate Lodge at the age of 80. Ron was born in 1940 in Collingwood, Ontario to Archibald and Alma (Robinson) Arbuthnot. His childhood days were spent helping with the family farm and cultivating his lifelong passion for skiing. Always mechanically curious, Ron started his career at IBM in 1965 and moved on to work for OISE until his retirement. After marrying in 1967, Ron & Bev raised their family in Agincourt where he always found the time to help with his sons’ Boy Scout troop and drinking the “world’s worst cup of coffee” while watching them play hockey at an undignified hour on Saturday mornings. Ron also took on roles in musical theatre and found time to appreciate nature, especially from a canoe. He remained active in his later years, roaming the hills with his cherished ski patrol well into his mid-70s, volunteering in his community, actively helping the St. Andrew’s Anglican Church in Wellington, and ever tinkering with yet “another thing to fix around here.” Ron was always willing to lend a helping hand and could be counted on for his unfailing sense of decency and honesty. Ron is survived by his beloved wife of 52 years Beverley, his two sons Ian (Jodi) and Sandy, and his granddaughter Grace as well as brothers George (Audrey) and Reg (Linda). Due to the restrictions surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, a private family interment will be held at the Wellington Cemetery.

JAMES ALLAN ‘Jim’ TAYLOR – May 2, 1928 – September 1, 2020 – James died peacefully at the Belleville General Hospital on the morning of September 1, 2020 at 92 years of age. Much loved husband and best friend to Mary Marguerite (nee Robinson), cherished father to Kim (Charles, pre-deceased), Cynthia (Kelly), James Jr. (Susan), and Timothy (Deirdre). Proud Poppa / Grandpa of ten grandchildren including Lauren (Chris), Jamie, Taylor, Kelly Breanne (Dan), Brendan, Madison, Kaitlyn, Jonathan, Daniel and Andrew, and great-grandfather to Harry. He is survived by his brother Harold. James A. Taylor was born May 2, 1928 in Timmins, Ontario, the third of five boys to Winnifred and Alfred Taylor. James attended the University of Toronto, where he achieved a BA in 1949, and Osgoode Hall Law School where he received his LLB in 1953. He was a former member of the U. of T. boxing and wrestling teams, and an intercollegiate wrestling champion. He was also a life member of the Scarborough Underwater Club. On September 20, 1950, James married Mary Marguerite Robinson, originally from Brampton, whom he met while attending the University of Toronto. They would have celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary later this month. His long association with urban affairs and municipal government began even before he started law practice. From 1951 to 1957 he was involved with the civil administration for the Borough of Scarborough – first as an articling law student, then as a legal advisor and solicitor for the municipality. In 1955 he set up Scarborough’s Legal Department, and for the next two years was a member of a four-man committee enacting the municipal council’s decisions into practice. In 1963 he was named a Queen’s Counsel, and from 1965 to 1967 he was legal council to the Ontario Select Committee on Conservation Authorities in Ontario. It was this committee that brought him to Prince Edward County, and shortly thereafter, he bought property at South Bay. To his broad knowledge of Ontario, James Taylor added a first-hand understanding of international affairs and administrations beyond North America with extensive travel throughout the sixties. He saw Central and South America, Western Europe, Russia, Scandinavia, Japan, the Middle East, Greece and Turkey. His interest in governmental affairs afforded him a broad background on local government administration, and an understanding of international affairs. In 1971 James started up a cattle operation on their family farms in South Marysburgh Township, Prince Edward County. The farm provided valuable insights and practical experience when it came to understanding the issues facing an agrarian community. In the same year, in October of 1971, he was elected as an MPP for the riding of Prince Edward – Lennox. James A. Taylor served in the Ontario Legislature for 17 years, from 1971 to 1987, and was a cabinet minister in the Progressive Conservative government of Bill Davis. During his career at Queen’s Park, his cabinet positions included Minister of Community and Social Services in 1975, and Minister of Energy in 1977. In 1983, he became the Parliamentary Assistant to the Honourable Frank Miller, the Minister of Industry and Trade. In this role he led trade missions to many countries including South Africa, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Egypt, Australia, New Zealand, India and Hong Kong. He continued to serve the constituents of Prince Edward – Lennox until retiring in 1987. James also served two terms as the first Mayor of the amalgamated Prince Edward County for a total of six years, from 1998 to 2003. It was a challenging assignment for the Mayor and council to create one cohesive government from eleven local municipalities. This was a time when the Ontario government was downloading many fiscal responsibilities to the municipalities. As Mayor, he served on all standing committees, was the Director of Quinte Healthcare Corporation, a member of the Finance Resource Committee, the Police Services Board, and the Eastern Ontario Smart Growth Panel. James Taylor was personally committed to public service. His political career spanned over 30 years with a long list of community involvement. Not only a leader, he was a dedicated humanitarian and community builder. He was determined to open up the County to business, economic growth and prosperity, while at the same time expediting the planning and approval process. James possessed a love of life and a fearless spirit. His integrity, determination and sense of humour provided him the foundation for many successes in life, and set an example for us all to live a caring and compassionate life. James and Mary resided at Northport in the County for over 45 years. His home was his sanctuary where loved to maintain his gardens and grounds, and he enjoyed many books in his favourite chair in his library over the winter months. But above all, he enjoyed holding court at the dining room table surrounded by all of his children and grandchildren, telling stories and jokes. His lessons of loyalty, perseverance, patience and graciousness are deeply rooted values that we as a family hold in high esteem today. James and Mary moved to their Westwind condo in Picton five years ago, and recently moved to the Quinte Gardens residence in Belleville. The family would like to thank all the staff, including the doctors and nurses for the care and compassion they provided on a daily basis at the Belleville General Hospital. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations made to the PECMH Foundation “Back The Build” or the PECMH Auxilliary. A public visitation will take place at St. Mary Magdalene Anglican Church, in Picton, on Wednesday, September 9, 2020 from 2:00 to 4:30 pm. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, visitors must schedule a time by calling 613-476-2450 and a mask must be worn. A private funeral will be held at a later date.

DAVID DUNLOP – It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of David Dunlop after a long battle and decline with Alzheimer’s. David died on Thursday, August 27th at the H.J. McFarland Memorial Home, Picton in his 82nd year. David was a most loving and caring husband of Diane Covington who felt blessed to be his wife. He was a much loved father to Jonathan and Nicky (Anthony) and a proud, fun loving Gramps to James, Katelyn, Lily, Olivia and Charlotte. Fondly remembered by Alex. David was born in England in May 1939 to a distinguished military family. The world was on the cusp of war. His father, a Major General in the British Army, was a senior officer in Singapore in 1942 when the city state fell victim to the Japanese invasion. David showed early promise as an athlete. He attended Winchester College, then and now one of the leading independent schools in England, where he played on the first cricket team. Cricket was a lifelong passion. Aspiring to see something of the world, David came to Canada in the fall of 1957 to study at McGill University and felt so liberated by the joys of Montreal and the relative breeziness of Canadian society that he decided to stay. He became a Canadian citizen as soon as it was possible for him to do so. On graduation he plunged into the world of Canadian business. He worked for some years at Proctor and Gamble but became disillusioned when asked to coat an extracted tooth with P&G toothpaste and measure how long it took the coated tooth to dissolve in a glass of Coca Cola. He felt called to greater challenges. He subsequently joined National Trust where he held a variety of positions of increasing responsibility in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal, eventually becoming Vice-President in Toronto and Senior Vice President Trust and Estates from 1979 to 1985. He especially loved his time in Vancouver with its English-style climate and sporting opportunities, and after returning to Toronto he kept up with his many Vancouver friends (sporting and otherwise) for the rest of his life. In 1985 he joined Royal Trust in Toronto as Senior Vice President, Corporate Financial Services. During this period David settled his family in an area of North York then called Hogg’s Hollow (now more grandly referred to as York Mills Valley). He was a friendly and popular figure. With skills learned on the playing fields of Winchester College he regularly won the York Mills Valley Fair’s annual long distance egg throwing contest. His children, Jonathan and Nicky, helped keep him humble. He became, and remained, a very active member of the Toronto Cricket Skating and Curling Club. Royal Trust was acquired by the Royal Bank of Canada in 1993, and David was appointed the bank’s Senior Vice President, Global Securities Services. By the time David retired the Bank’s custody department had become the 11th largest such group in the world. Under his leadership custody assets had grown from $30 billion in 1986 to over $1 trillion in 2001. For many years David was also a Director of the industry organization, Canadian Depository for Securities, including 3 years on the Audit Committee, member of the Executive Committee and eventually Vice-President. Prior to his retirement he was also Vice Chairman of the Canadian Markets association. In December 2001, at a black-tie dinner in London, England, he was presented with a lifetime achievement award for his exemplary services to the global custody industry. David had joined Canada with enthusiasm in the 1950s and over the next half century, with a ready smile and personal charm, he enjoyed and contributed to every community across the country where he lived, and helped grow his chosen industry of financial services to new global heights. Upon his retirement David and Diane moved to their country house in Wellington, Prince Edward County, in a beautifully restored house on the shores of Lake Ontario, where they intended to live happily ever after. Unfortunately, in recent years, David was tragically and progressively struck down by Alzheimer’s disease. As the disease eroded his memory David still took joy in long walks with their dog (“Petey”), but sometimes he forgot when he had last taken out the dog, and summonsed the exhausted dog for yet another forced circuit around the town. Occasionally on these walks David would become disoriented but if that happened friends and neighbours in Wellington, with the solidarity of a small town, and recognizing David’s plight, would gently bring David (and the exhausted Petey) home. The help in these last years of friends and neighbours is greatly appreciated. The family would like to thank the staff at the McFarland Memorial Home for their warmth and for the devoted care they gave to David. A private family burial will take place at Glenwood Cemetery, Picton with the Reverend Steve Spicer officiating. Memorial donations to the Alzheimer’s Society, Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation or to the Storehouse Food Bank would be appreciated by the family.

A proud great-grandfather to Josiah, Gavin, Carter and Abigail. Charlie was pre-deceased by his parents Alfred and Clara (nee Gay), brother Don, sister Doris and his first wife Bernice. He was a loving brother-in-law and uncle to his large extended family and will be fondly remembered. Having spent most of his life in Wellington, Charlie’s experiences were many and varied. As he was mechanically inclined, he served as a Spitfire mechanic in England during the WWII and was very pleased to make the return voyage to Canada via ship following Victory in Europe. In fact, Charlie vowed he would never fly in an airplane after the war. While he and Jean traveled widely in later years, including snowbird winters in the Florida sun, it was never by plane! After the war, Charlie, returned to Wellington and worked many years and fondly recounted his time with MacFarlane Construction. He told many stories from those days and much of our Eastern Ontario Road network is the product of the efforts of Charlie and his colleagues. Did you know that Hwy 7 was supposed to be the 4 lane Hwy to Toronto not the 401! After leaving MacFarlane construction, Charlie purchased the Wellington Five to a Dollar, which later became Stedman’s located where Nash Home Hardware sits today. Historically, there was an old lane between the 2 buildings separating these two store fronts. He went on to become a very successful business man and entrepreneur purchasing real estate in the village. He was actively involved in his community, supported many organizations and sat on local council. He loved puttering at his “tin barn” in Wellington. His energy and vigour were truly remarkable. Whether teaching grandkids to ride any manner of bike, tractor or moped or making wooden stilts and showing them how to walk with them at the age of 80, finishing the basement of their home including dry wall on the ceiling when he was 90, he kept himself constantly busy and on the go. He was blessed with excellent health throughout his long life…truly, he was one of a kind and an example for all of us to try and emulate. Cremation has taken place in accordance with Charlie’s wishes and an open air Memorial Service at the Wellington Cemetery will be held on Friday, August 21st at 2:00pm. (Please wear a mask and respect social distancing) In lieu of flowers, donations in Charlie’s memory may be made to the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation or Hospice Prince Edward, so as to support the County he loved.

KEITH JACK WILLIAMS – With great sadness, we announce the passing of Keith Jack Williams of Picton, Ontario. Keith died unexpectedly on August 6th at Kingston General Hospital. Born on April 3, 1938 to Alton and Kathleen Hunt of Demorestville, Keith was raised by Myrtle Williams and her mother, Jessie. Though the circumstances of Keith’s coming into and leaving this world were less than ideal, he made a point of living life to the fullest and treating everyone with kindness. From flying his Fleet Canuck around Canada and the United States to hitchhiking through Yoho National Park, he had a love for life that was hard to dampen and an unerring ability to survive mishaps, including a near miss in his plane that necessitated an emergency landing on Brockville Main Street. After a short stint teaching at Labrador City Collegiate and West Kings High School, Keith spent the majority of his working life as Principal of the Shelburne Youth Centre in Nova Scotia. Upon early retirement, Keith moved himself and his family home to Prince Edward County, a place he loved dearly. His later years were marked by volunteer work, which included a stint as Commanding Officer of the 851 Air Cadet Squadron and serving on the Glenwood Cemetery Board. Keith relished teaching a new generation of pilots how to fly and being active in his community. Keith is predeceased by his brothers, Gerald, Glen and Laverne (Sam) Hunt. He is survived by his wife, Elspeth (nee Lindsay) and Keith Williams Jr. (Basma Kavanagh), Kathleen Williams, Sarah Williams (Ryan Harvey), granddaughter Ana Blum and another, as yet unnamed, granddaughter on the way. Donations to the Loyalist Humane Society or the 851 Air Cadet Squadron would be appreciated by the family. A celebration of life will take place in the future, when social distancing is not a concern. Keith will be interred at Glenwood Cemetery.

Complications from surgery lead to his death at Kingston Health Sciences Center, surrounded by his family.

He is mourned by her husband Bill, with whom he shared a friendship of 78 years, and by LouAnne, Randy, Janet and Paul. Normand touched many lives and many minds throughout his life. He was the mentor and much-admired elder statesman of two close-knit families, those of his cousins in Quebec and of his extended family of in-laws. He was an educator, an academic, a researcher and a lifelong learner. (M.Theol., M.A., M.Ed., PhD.)

He was a gentle man and a gentleman. Normand left an indelible mark on the Franco-Ontarian community. He co-authored landmark studies of the Franco-Ontarian education system that inspired further studies and influenced strategic directions at both ministerial and school board levels. He received many awards, published books and many refereed articles, was a valued keynote speaker. Throughout, Normand especially valued his calling as teacher, professor, and graduate research advisor. The family would like to extend their sincere thanks and gratitude to Dr Norma Charrière as well as to the staff at the Picton, Belleville and Kingston Hospitals and, more specifically, the hospital staff in the ICU units for their compassion and care.

Colin will also be dearly missed by his brother Ian Campbell and his wife Anne, and by Jeanne’s children Jamie Hillis (wife Kathy and children Allison and Scott), John Hillis (wife Lizzie and children Kelly and Maggie), Su Sheedy (husband Michael and children Owen, Sydney and Graham) and Annie Hillis (husband John Sobol and children Louis and Sophie) and great grandchildren Patrick and Abigail. When Colin graduated from OAC (the Ontario Agricultural College, then a college of the University of Toronto and now the University of Guelph) in 1955, he made the bold decision to take a position with significant responsibility for a newly-minted engineer with the Demerara Bauxite Company (then a subsidiary of Alcan Aluminium) in Guyana. He moved there with his first wife, Lois (nee Stratton), and started his family. Colin and his young family moved back to Canada in 1959, and Colin began as a mechanical engineer at Dominion Foundries and Steel Company, later known as “Dofasco Inc.”, in Hamilton. Colin became Vice President, Operating Services and retired from Dofasco in 1991 after 32 years with the company. During his time in Hamilton, Colin became the Chair of the Board of Hillfield Strathallan College, the independent school attended by his three children, and was recognized as a “Builder” of this prestigious school. Colin reconnected with his high school sweetheart, Jeanne, and they married in 1988. Colin and Jeanne retired to the Bay of Quinte area and enjoyed many years together in the home they built on Long Reach, Jeanne painting in her studio, and Colin building or restoring everything from ultralight planes and antique cars to kayaks and disappearing propeller boats (“dippys”). Colin volunteered as a member of the Board of the Napanee General Hospital for many years, and more recently he was a volunteer with “Reaching for Rainbow kids” at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Picton. Colin had a wonderful sense of adventure, sailing with friends from Bermuda to the Azores in a 42-foot sailboat and cottaging in remote areas of Georgian Bay accessible only by boat. Colin will be fondly remembered by his family, friends, colleagues in the business world, and colleagues in the volunteer world. A private memorial service will take place in the fall. Cremation has taken place. Colin’s family would like to thank the kind people at the Prince Edward Hospice in Picton, where Colin spent his last weeks.

ISABELLE CAROL ANNE PATTON – December 20, 1963 – June 16, 2020 – Passed away peacefully at Toronto General Hospital with husband Mark and big sister Fiona at her side on Tuesday June 16, 2020. The daughter of well travelled and eccentric parents, Isabelle was born in Calgary. In her youth she experienced art in its many forms from “mommy and daddy”. They lived in Chicago and Detroit before landing in Toronto where Isabelle worked and enjoyed a retail clothing/fashion life as an adult. She moved to Prince Edward County in 2004 to join her mom and sister, who already resided here. The fashion followed. Isabelle not only stood out from a personality perspective, but from what she wore. Her look was her own. In the County she served the public at the beautiful bookstore – as reading was another love of hers – and at women’s fashion stores. She became a fixture in the community from her warm and inviting spirit and presence at local events. She loved the County and the County loved her back. Her interests were far and wide ranging – travel, art, music, theatre. She was a wife, a step-mom, the cutest little sister and a great and true friend to many. She excelled at most of what she put her wonderful mind to and took great pleasure in what life had to offer. She radiated a light that will never be diminished. Love to you Isabelle. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Mark, Taylor, Morgan, Fiona and Tanya. Arrangements entrusted to the Whattam Funeral Home, 33 Main St., Picton, ON.

JOSEPH ALFRED SHANNON – It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of our most dearest friend and uncle, Joe Shannon, who passed away peacefully in his sleep at Hamilton General Hospital on June 10th, 2020. He was in his 89th year and every one of those years were spent laughing with old friends and new friends. His first 80 years were spent in Picton where he was known as a joyful, hardworking man who generously donated his spare time to a variety of causes. For a couple of decades there were many people helper organizations that solicited his ticket selling skills to raise money. Those sales raised thousands of dollars for good causes. He was also a long time member of the United Church and many Sunday mornings he stood at the front doors to welcome those who came to the services of the day. He sat in the cold every spring in front of the local grocery store to sell daffodils for the Cancer Society and he did it willingly and happily. He enjoyed the Bingo games at the Elk’s Hall especially when he managed to win a game or two. He was unique and he was the spirit of the town that he loved. Uncle Joe will be missed by nephew Dennis who accompanied him to numerous sporting events at Maple Leaf Gardens and Ivor Wynne Stadium in days gone by. They enjoyed bus trips to Ottawa, Washington DC, Montreal and other places. He moved to Hamilton in 2012 where he shared his final years with nephew Gary and his wife Sandy. He enjoyed the city almost as much as he enjoyed Picton but in reality he simply enjoyed meeting people. He lived a full life and will be missed by all who knew him including great nephew Jeremy, wife Anna and children Avery and Austin. Cremation has taken place and interment will take place at Cherry Valley Cemetery on Monday June 22 at 11 am. The Reverend Audrey Whitney officiating. Donations in Joe’s memory can be directed to whichever charity you prefer. A celebration of life will occur in Hamilton at a later date.

She loved the hard work of farm life and loved a fun time with her many friends and family. Her 75th wedding anniversary celebration brought out 200 plus people to honour that day. She said, “I have had a wonderful childhood” with her friends the Whattams brothers Willis and Norman, Verla Robbins Whattam and Jean Dulmage Whattam to name a few. At 14 years, Barbara had a job of driving the truck for the Cherry Valley Canning Factory to pick up the workers from South Bay and take them to the Factory. Once she made it down the Milford hill she stopped to tell Quint Minaker (mechanic) that she had no brakes. He said, “Oh just put it in Bull Low and you will be fine”. She laughed “they never did fix those brakes.” She moved up to be the factory bookkeeper with no orientation and then became responsible for the payroll for the whole company. She said her life with Leland has been filled with lots of laughter and many fun memories. Dancing was a must once or twice a week throughout her life. She met Leland at a dance at Martin’s Dance Hall out at the outlet and they continued weekly dancing up to her age of 92. She always had a big garden with all the canning and freezing that follows but most of all she loved giving lots of it away. She was known as the geranium lady. They surrounded that old farm house and then in the winter they filled all the windows. She loved entering her baking in the Picton Fair and usually won. You know when a prize was a case of peas. She had a keen sense of genealogy and knew who was related to who and family history for many but especially from South Bay. She was better than a click on Google because she had the story that went along with the relationship link. She gave back to her community as a strong supporter and volunteer during her life teaching 4 H Homemaking, working at Picton Blood Donor Clinic, being a member of the Prince Edward Hospital Women’s Auxiliary, the Gilbert’s Mills Women’s Institute, and the Royal Purple Women’s division of the Elks Lodge. In other words Barbara could do it all and do it well. We are blessed to have had her in our lives, and they say a life well lived leaves behind a beautiful legacy of wonderful memories. She was full of life; she loved her man, loved to laugh, loved to dance, worked hard, enjoyed friendships of all ages, and believed in being a great neighbour and had a special place in her heart for her family. We would all do well to take away these traits and try and make them our own for a long, successful, happy and healthy life. Barbara will be sadly missed by her husband, Leland, daughter Rilla Rhodes (Leith), son-in-law Jack Therrien, grandsons Dustin Therrien (Crystal) and Derek Therrien. Remembered as GG to her great grandchildren Arlo, Deacon, and Raya Therrien. A thank-you goes out for all the support, expertise and compassion given by the staff at Belleville General Hospital Quinte 4, by the wonderful staff of Hospice Prince Edward, and by Dr. Sarah LeBlanc. A private graveside service will take place followed by Interment at Glenwood Cemetery, Picton. Donations may be made to Hospice Prince Edward, or the charity of your choice.

WILLIAM LAWRENCE ‘Bill’ SOLES – December 15, 1933 – April 1, 2020 – Bill Soles passed away peacefully with his daughters Liane and Ali by his side. ‘Billy’ was a creative artist and designer who shared beauty and humour in everything he created. He was curious and interested in everyone he met. He had an enormous sense of adventure; from hitch-hiking to California in a three-piece suit – to road tripping through Europe – to driving his 1955 Austin Healy 100M convertible with the top down through the Toronto winters. His love for the freedom of driving had him racing go-karts in Latvia and ultimately getting his pilot’s licence. His love for beauty in all things extended from an enormous passion for architecture to the simple beauty in the calm of Cache Lake, in Algonquin Park, Ontario. He was as delighted in the finest detail of a Frank Lloyd Wright creation, as he was in tossing a horse shoe or paddling a canoe at dusk. He will be greatly missed by his daughters Liane and Ali, his brother Paul and sister Ruth-Ellen, nephew Jonathon, ex-wife Arlene and sister-in-law Jean, family and friends. Bill will always be in our hearts. Many thanks to the wonderful staff at H.J. McFarland in Picton. A celebration of Bill’s life will take place at a future date.

Bill came to Canada after serving in WW2 on Britains HMS Argonaut. He settled in the Galt/Cambridge area where he met and married the love of his life, Mary, eventually making Kitchener Waterloo their home. He was an excellent sales person at local car lots, and his entrepreneurial spirit lead him in many different business directions. In his retirement years, he worked at an auction house. In his late 80’s, he came to live in Picton and said “it was the best move he ever made.” And it was. He was saved from mis-adventures on his scooter by passing strangers. And his caregiving team at his home were just that – in a thousand ways he appreciated. This extended to the doctor, nursing and PSW staff at the PECM Hospital who worked to make his last days comfortable. Many thanks to all. Bill loved to travel, and was always willing to try new adventures: He looked forward to his annual quad ride in the river with his grandson, and crossed off fishing and ice fishing from the bucket list. Oh, how he loved fish & chips!! His ongoing sharp humour was much shared and appreciated. As CS Lewis once said: “The greater the love, the greater the loss, and you cannot have one without the other”. Farewell Dad. Love you, The Haldane Family.
