It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of John Lenny Hamm on January 19th at Lakeridge Health Center, where he peacefully succumbed to pneumonia at age 94. He was the beloved son of George Hamm, and cherished husband of Ruth Higgens, with whom he is now re-united.
He will be deeply missed by his daughter, Maureen, his son in Michael and his daughter in law, Maria, to whom he was always an anchor.
A respected Navy veteran, he enjoyed a long career as a valet, where he was renowned for his gregarious and generous nature. His quick wit and kind heart resonated with all whom he interacted.
Though he will be missed forever, his memory will burn strongly as on inspiration to those whom he touched.
In lieu of a Funeral, the family asks that loved ones honour John with a random act of kindness and senseless act of beauty, as these are the actions that marked John’s life.
A tree will be planted on Irish mountain in his honour.
It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Helen Elizabeth (Betty) Fraser (nee Kay). Betty passed away at home on Wednesday, January 17th, 2018, at the age of 81. She was the dear daughter of the late Albert Edward and Edith Cavell (Taylor) Kay.
Through the way she lived her life, Betty taught us all lessons about love, compassion, understanding and acceptance. Her strength and independence were an inspiration and a comfort; she was an emergency room nurse for over 40 years, a generous neighbour, a rescuer of stray cats, and the center of her family.
While her loss diminishes us all, it will be particularly felt by her sons Don (Lynn), Bob, Brian (Carla), Ian (Gloria), her grandchildren Jeff (Stephanie), Lindsey, Duncan, Heather, Matthew, Rob, and Andrew, her siblings Jean (Gerald) Lockhart, Alice (Len) Richards, John (Marion) Kay, Peter (Gail) Kay, Tricia Clarke, her nieces and nephews, and her many dear friends.
Betty was predeceased by her grandson Adrian Fraser and her brothers Allan Kay and Michael Clarke.
Donations if you care to make one, may be made in her memory to The Red Cross or a charity of your choice.
