Eric Reginald HOARE On a sunny morning walk with his dog Cody and wife Rosemary (both beloved), Eric died a beautiful, sudden, death on March 3, 2003. Eric was born April 8, 1918 and raised in Orillia, Ontario in a close and loving family. He attended Queen's University before joining the Tropicana Oil Company and with his new bride moved to El Centro, Columbia. Returning to Canada, Eric joined Imperial Oil and raised his growing family of Geoff, Tony and Wendy. They lived in Toronto, Calgary, Vancouver and Edmonton before he and Roey retired in 1981 to British Columbia's Sunshine Coast. His retirement years were spent exploring the love for his wife, children, son-in-law Jerry, step grandchildren, grandchildren, dogs and cat. Any and all felt his love flood into them through a hug, a tick removed or biting into one of his many favourite varieties of cookies. 'Uncle Eck's' wealth of family includes Peter and Bev HOARE, David and Willy BOHME, Katie DRINKWATER, Rob and Pat GILL, Dave and Marlene GILL, and their families in Ontario, Mardee and Bruce BUDD and family in Alberta and the FRAZEE family on the west coast. Since Dad always enjoyed a party, two celebrations of his life will take place, one in Sechelt, British Columbia and the other in Orillia, Ontario. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Sargeant Bay Society, Box 1486, Sechelt, British Columbia V0N 3A0 or the Sunshine Coast Hospice, c/o R.R.8, 308 Skyline Drive, Gibsons, British Columbia V0N 1V8.

DRISCOLL, Father Joseph Vincent Philip Mary "Jakie"
The Jesuits of Winnipeg and the rest of Canada both mourn the loss and celebrate the life and Faith of Father Joseph Vincent Philip Mary (Jakie) DRISCOLL, S.J., who died suddenly at St. Ignatius Parish Rectory on Sunday, December 14th in his 71st year of religious life. The third son of William Francis DRISCOLL and Elizabeth (Lilly) Frances MORRISSEY, he was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, U.S.A. in 1916, Father DRISCOLL first encountered the Jesuits at Boston College High School where he graduated in 1933. Experiencing and responding positively to a call to be a Jesuit priest himself he entered the novitiate in Guelph, Ontario immediately after completing his high school studies. As a young Jesuit he followed the long and thorough academic program at Guelph and Toronto, taught at Regiopolis college in Kingston, Ontario and was ordained a priest in 1946. He returned to work in Regiopolis in 1974 as well as served as the chaplain of the Royal Military College in Kingston. From 1954-58 he was a Director of the Jean Mance School of Nursing at the Hotel Diču Hospital in Kingston which was followed by a brief period of Jesuit administration duties in Toronto. With the exception of summers spent in graduate studies at Catholic University in Washington, D.C., and three years in charge of a retreat house near Montreal (1963-66,) from 1959 on until his death Father DRISCOLL devoted his time, talent and spirit to the people of Manitoba. He served in a variety of capacities including university chaplain, fundraiser for St. Paul's High School and St. Paul's College, and a member of the Board of Directors of the St. Boniface Hospital School of Nursing. He was appointed pastor of Saint John Brebeuf Parish in Winnipeg in 1972, serving in that capacity until 1980, was Rector of both St. Paul's High School (1966-72) and of St. Paul's College (1981-84). He played an active role in organizing the 1984 papal visit to Manitoba and assisted the wider community as a member of the B'Nai Brith, Mayor Norrie Award Committee in 1985 and as the Honorary Vice-President of the Canadian Bible Society in 1986. Towards the end of his life he worked in the marriage tribunal of the Archdiocese of Winnipeg and as the Archivist of the Archdiocese. As well, he was actively involved in both the College and the High School, including assignments as alumni chaplain to both, and archivist to the High School.
In addition to the Jesuits of Winnipeg and the rest of Canada, Jakie will be missed by many others including Dr. Donald and Rosemary (niece) CHEW of Niagara Falls, Ontario and Charles CRESINO (cousin) of Ashburn, Virginia. Friends who will mourn the loss of Fr. DRISCOLL come from every generation and sector of life in Winnipeg and beyond. Active until the very end of his life, he brought to all those who knew him a personal integrity and commitment to the Catholic Church and to other faith communities that will be missed.
Prayer services and Funeral Mass were celebrated in Winnipeg. Those wishing to do so may make a donation in Fr. DRISCOLL's memory to the Father Driscoll Legacy Endowment Fund of St. Paul's College, 70 Dysart Rd., Winnipeg, R3T 2M6 or to the Fr. Driscoll Founders' Fund, St. Paul's High School, 2200 Grant Ave., Winnipeg, R3P 0P8.
'God Bless'
