FINN, John " Bud" Henry
Storyteller, gardener, dog-lover, physician, outdoorsman. Born September 10, 1924, in Montreal. Died March 3 in Kitchener, Ontario, of prostate cancer, aged 83.
By Heather FINN and Eric Ohio, Page L6
To his Friends and family, John was simply Bud. He grew up in the Beaches area of Toronto as the oldest child of an Irish immigrant mother and lake-boat captain father. Bud loved to tell the story about the time his father, having returned from a long trip, pulled him out of school one day to see the burlesque shows downtown.
Bud began his studies at the University of Toronto in 1943. He found his calling there as a physician and became the first university graduate in his family.
In 1948, he married his high-school sweetheart, Helen, a lady in the truest sense of the word. They moved to Wellesley, a farming community in Southwestern Ontario, where they raised four boys - David, Bruce, Brian and Stephen - and set up a practice that at one point served 7,000 patients.
Doc FINN was the quintessential country doctor. His range of services and the hours he kept knew no limits. On any given day, he might deliver a baby, remove an infected appendix, mix his own medications in his apothecary and test the town's water supply as the de facto director of public health.
Bud's nearly 50 years as a physician spanned an era when medical knowledge and the way it was practised evolved at a formidable rate. Despite these changes, he maintained the highest level of care for all his patients, trusting his instincts and keeping abreast of the latest research.
At one time Bud claimed to know all the police officers in the region by name. Once, he was pulled over for travelling a little too quickly on the way to deliver a baby in Kitchener. He looked at his watch and said, "Well… I guess the girls will have to do it without me." The police officer escorted Bud to the hospital, lights flashing.
Outside the clinic, Bud was an avid outdoorsman, spending his limited free time exploring the lakes and hills of Central Ontario with his trusty Nikon always at hand.
He happened upon a pristine piece of Crown land in the early 1950s while on a canoe trip with his brothers-in-law. Upon his return to Toronto the next week, Bud purchased the point for In subsequent summers, the building materials for the cottage and its contents were transported to the remote location by barge, an old army Jeep and Beaver aircraft. The cottage and its deep, calm waters were Bud's pride and joy and a welcome respite from his demanding career.
Bud lived the life of a person who knew that respect and love were to be earned and cherished. He will be missed by all those whom he touched and healed.
Heather FINN is Bud's granddaughter, and Eric OH is her husband.

O'HALLORAN, Kristen Leigh
As always, with pride, dignity and courage, peacefully surrounded by loved ones and with a penguin by her side, Kristen Leigh O'HALLORAN, on Monday July 7th, 2008, in her 26th year. Beloved daughter of Doug and Marsha O'HALLORAN. Dearest sister and best friend of Erin O'HALLORAN. Eternal ski buddy of Jeff NAIRN. Loving " Auntie Kwis" to Rikka. Cherished "daughter" and guardian angel to the Westminster Park community. Dearly loved lifelong friend of Amber, Morgan, Jessica, Lisa, Nicole and many more. Fondly remembered and survived by many aunts, uncles and cousins. Predeceased by Grandma and Grandpa O'HALLORAN, and Grandma and Grandpa FERRI. Always loved by her Toys "R" Us family. Kristen's family wishes to personally thank Doctor LOGAN, Nurse Nancy FULTON, Chemo Nurse Elly, and all the staff at the London Regional Cancer Centre and Critical Care Trauma Centre for your incredible compassion and support throughout Kristen's journey. Kristen was many things to many people. She was an incredible nurse - a true nurturer and compassionate soul. She was a sports nut - "Go Red Wings!". Kristen played baseball and ringette and was a natural between the posts. She loved road trips and was always up for a good flea market. Fashionista extraordinaire - she always looked fabulous. Kristen taught us all about the real meaning of life. She was a soldier. A survivor. She was an inspiration to all who met her. Kristen's life was full of love and laughter. She finished her journey here with class and quiet strength, and is now looking forward to her next journey - full of eternal sunshine, dancing, bocce ball games, search-a-words, movies, lots of tea, roadtrips, laughter and endless Stanley Cup games. Visitation to be held Wednesday, July 9 from 7-9 p.m. and Thursday, July 10 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at A. Millard George Funeral Home, 60 Ridout Street South, London. (Due to extensive construction in the area we recommend taking Wellington Road North and turning left on Horton Street, then another left on Ridout Street South.) A Celebration of Kristen's Life will be held on Friday, July 11, 2008 at 11: 00 a.m. at St. Stephen's Memorial Anglican Church, 727 Southdale Road East, London, with Reverend T. Keith NETHERY officiating. In honour of Kristen's love of the greatest game on earth, visitors are welcome (but not required!) to wear their favorite hockey jerseys to the Church Service on Friday. In lieu of flowers, those wishing to make donations can do so to the "Kristen O'Halloran Memorial Fund" at Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce White Oaks Mall branch.

LECKIE, W. Merrill
Merrill passed away at his home at Maple Bay on January 05, 2008, but his wonderful spirit and sense of humor will live on in the hearts and minds of those he touched over the years.
Born in Vancouver, October 09, 1933, Merrill graduated from University of British Columbia with degrees in Commerce and Law. He went on to practice law in Vancouver for 42 years, during which time he served as president of the British Columbia Branch Canadian Bar Association, president of the British Columbia Arbitration and Mediation Institute, and British Columbia president of the Council for Canadian Unity. His interests were diverse and he served as a director of the Doctor Sun Yat-sen Gardens, The Vancouver Bach Choir and the Canadian Safety Council. Always proud of his Scottish heritage Merrill was also a director of St. Andrews and Caledonian Society of Vancouver and the Vancouver Burns Club and never missed a chance to toast his beloved Robbie Burns with a 'wee dram'.

In 1989, Merrill was appointed a Chartered Arbitrator and also served as a Trade-mark agent and a Fellow of the Patent and Trade-mark Institute of Canada.
Before retiring to Maple Bay on Vancouver Island he was awarded the Louis St. Laurent Award of Excellence by the Canadian Bar Association for his outstanding service. Upon retiring Merrill was elected as president of the Cowichan Symphony Society from 2003 to 2007 and he and his board members worked tirelessly to bring the music of the Victoria Symphony to the Cowichan Valley. He was also a member of the Cowichan Harbours Commission.
A highlight of his career was serving for many years as a director and secretary for the British Columbia Lions Football Club. The Club has lost one of their greatest supporters.
