Family first for Royal Canadian Air Force coach
By Amanda ROBINSON, Sun Media, Sun., May 27, 2007
Harold Leslie LANCASTER returned home in 1945 from Britain to Canada disappointed.
As a Royal Canadian Air Force instructor, he trained hundreds of men who went off to fight in the Second World War but never used his own flying skills in battle.
His loving young wife saw to that by making his family top priority.
For 2½ years at the war's onset, LANCASTER trained young flyers at the air base in Goderich, where he flew everything from the small, pesky Spitfire to the mammoth bomber with which he shared a name -- the Lancaster.
Then it was on to Britain in August 1944, where he trained more Commonwealth pilots, all the time hoping he'd see action in the war in the Pacific.
But that campaign of the war would end, too, before LANCASTER, who died April 1 at age 85, could fulfil his adventurous spirit.
Disappointed as LANCASTER was at again missing out on battle firsthand, it suited his young wife, the former Evelyn TUNKS, just fine.
The two had been married on September 13, 1941, about six years after meeting at age 14.
She had more than a little influence on LANCASTER never fighting overseas -- she wanted her husband to be around for her and their children.
"Thank God he didn't have to go," she said. "When he came home he had a chance to go on but I said, 'No, I want a father for my children.' "
And that was that -- LANCASTER would devote the rest of his life to family and nature.
When he died last month, he left behind his wife of 65 years and two daughters, Sharon STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, 64, and Janis LANCASTER, 57.
He also is survived by two grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
"He was such a nice, kind man and he was a lot of fun," STEWARD/STEWART/STUART said of her dad. "He just loved young fellas or gals who loved nature."
LANCASTER grew up on a farm in Elgin County with six brothers. There, he developed a love and appreciation for nature, specifically birds. He was fascinated by them and became an avid bird watcher, documenting and writing about many species.
LANCASTER also became active with many environmental groups, among them the Federation of Ontario Naturalists, the West Elgin Nature Club and the eco-Elgin Environmental Society.
STEWARD/STEWART/STUART credits her father for her appreciation of nature. She admits she's never had the passion for birds her father had but she does enjoy the peace and quiet of natural settings.
"I love to sit and listen to the birds and I love to have my place natural-looking," she said.
"I also got from my father just (a) love of life and (the belief) that I can do anything that I want."
