Ms. Alice Bertha May Goss

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our Mother/Grandmother, Alice Bertha May Goss (nee Green), at the age of 86 at Muskoka Shores, Gravenhurst on Sunday, October 1, 2017.
Mom was born August 1, 1931 to Martha Jane (nee Cain) and Allan Green.

Great-grandmother of 24 and great-great-grandmother of 5.
Pre-deceased by husband Lloyd Godfrey and brothers Don Green and Albert Green.
Remembered by sister-in-law Violet Green.
As we reminisce, we remember Mom/Grandma enjoying watching the Hamilton Tiger-cats while eating spoonfuls of peanut butter, star-gazing, her sweet-tooth, her love of animals and birds (especially seagulls and owls), and her being mesmerized admiring family’s jewellery as they visited with her. During her days at Muskoka Shores in Gravenhurst she would love to be taken to Gull Lake Park. While there having picnics she shared most of her food with the seagulls.
Mom didn’t venture out often and loved watching travel shows and would say “I have travelled the world from my lazy boy”. As you travel in Heaven, may we remember:

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sunset on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn’s rain.

When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
I am the sweet uplifting rush,
Of quiet birds in circled flight,
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry
I am not there, I did not die.

Cremation has taken place and a private, family gathering will be held at a later date.
If considering a donation, The Alzheimer Society or The Ontario SPCA would be appreciated.
We wish to thank all Mom’s caregivers over the years and especially thank those special ones from Muskoka Shores.

He will be greatly missed by his wife Heather, brother Tom (Mary), children John (Lisa) and Carrie (Jeff) Watt, granddaughters, nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his brother Peter in 2005.
David was born in London, Ontario, son of Thomas and Margaret, and enjoyed summers at Lake Huron and Camp Hurontario with brothers Tom and Peter. He met his intellectual equal and life-long love Heather at the University of Western Ontario. They celebrated 50 years of marriage in 2015 with friends and family at their cottage on Lake of Bays. Both David and Heather graduated from the Ivey Business School in 1965 and David went on to be a member of the first graduating class of the MBA program at York University in 1967.
David embraced and thrived in a variety of business roles highlighted by his 15 years as President of Stafford Foods. He also served as President of Hunt Wesson Foods Canada, Vice President of Imperial Life and Vice President of Ontario Blue Cross/Blue Shield. On the weekends, he instilled his strong work ethic in his children, completing building projects at several cottage properties between Georgian Bay and Lake of Bays. He also made time for fun with his friends, family and toys – from his hand-built Seaflea speedboat to his Piper Cub airplane. David enjoyed golf and served on the Board at Panther Woods Country Club in Florida and was President of Men’s Golf at Deerhurst Lakeside. He helped launch the Probus Club in Huntsville, served as a Warden at Grassmere Church and delivered Meals on Wheels.
David was an extremely proud Grandpa and Big D to Haley, Emily, Annie, Audrey, Sophie and Meredith. He cheered on all their accomplishments, gave them their first taste of beer, and made them personalized paddles for our annual family Olympics.
Our family would like thank Dr. David Mathies and the doctors, nurses and medical practitioners at Huntsville Hospital, CCAC and Hospice Huntsville for their compassionate care for David in his final journey.

WEST, Edwin Andrew

April 26, 1930 to January 28, 2017
Edwin passed peacefully in his sleep at The Pines Nursing Home, Bracebridge on Saturday, January 28, 2017, with his son and granddaughter by his side. A Celebration of Life will be held at Tally Ho Inn, 2222 Highway 60, Huntsville on Sunday February 5 at 2pm with refreshments to follow, all are welcome.
Loving father to Andrew (Catherine) and (predeceased) Patti Colquette (Doug).  Grandfather to Ashley and Drew (Cassandra) and great grandfather to their children Jorja and Avery. Brother to Chuck, Ray and (predeceased) Olive.
Edwin was a quiet man who devoted his life to his family, his resort, Tally Ho Inn, and to his community, Lake of Bays, with 38 years of dedicated service to the fire department as well as two terms on council and many years on the hospital board of directors. He was always ready to have a coffee and chat with his friends and staff at the lodge and never let an opportunity to share a joke or funny story pass him by.
In his later years he would spend much of his time with the staff at Tally Ho, who were like family to him, or in his tractor working on the roads. His true favorite was working in his vegetable garden pulling weeds and sampling its yield as he worked, a tradition he carried on at his new home at The Pines, often going out to the courtyard in the morning and having a snack on the vegetables that grew there.  His last 16 months were filled with happiness at The Pines where he went on outings, attended talks and concerts held there, venturing out in his wheel chair or chatting with the staff.
In lieu of flowers, donations to The Pines, District of Muskoka in Bracebridge or the Huntsville District Memorial Hospital Foundation would be appreciated by the family.
His family wishes to extend their thanks to new owners of Tally Ho Inn, The Dryden’s, for the use of the lodge Edwin loved so much for the celebration of life and to all the staff at The Pines for the great care they took of Edwin, the true happiness they gave him and the kindness with which they treated him and his family.

Jack HatkoskiHATKOSKI, Richard Jack
In conjunction with the last class bell, R. Jack Hatkoski passed away on November 30th, 2016 in the comfort of his Dwight home surrounded by his loving family. Once the seriousness of his abdominal cancer was considered, he made the brave decision to forego further treatments and to divert those resources to those that truly needed them. His three week battle was brief, heroic and honourable.
At just over 82 years of age, Jack had a full life that wasted little time. Born in St. Catharines, he moved with his family to Dwight while in High School. Upon graduation from the University of Toronto in 1956, with a degree in Forestry, he worked in his field for a short period of time before entering Teachers’ College. Upon graduation, he began teaching at Parry Sound High School and spent the majority of his career at Huntsville High School before retiring in 1989. He was an avid private pilot, Ontario Land Surveyor, traveler, outdoorsman and village elder who skied and snowmobiled in his spare time.
Jack is survived by his wife of 54 years, Jacquie Hatkoski, brother Jim Hatkoski, son Richard (and Judy) Hatkoski, daughter Janice (and Paul) Fulton. Pride of his life were his granddaughters Taylor Hatkoski, Dana Fulton and Sophia Hatkoski.
A Celebration of Life will be held at Stewart Memorial Church, Dwight, on June 17th at 12:00 p.m. with a lunch reception to follow at the Dwight Senior’s Centre. All are welcome to attend his celebration and we encourage everyone to perhaps pass on a few of Jack’s more famous quotes, sayings or personal stories. He was never shy to share his option. Arrangements entrusted to Billingsley Funeral Home.

From a small Northern Ontario town, where she met and married Doug, she went on to live in England and Wisconsin before settling in Huntsville in 1978.
Millie felt her greatest accomplishment was that of a homemaker to her family. She also had a passion for history and travel. She and Doug were able to explore many parts of the world. She wrote extensive travelogues detailing their experiences, and loved to share her stories.
Millie will be missed by her family and friends. At her request, there will be no funeral service. The family will celebrate her life at a later date.

Ches FultonFULTON, Chesley “Ches” Emmerson
Ches Fulton passed away peacefully at Hospice Niagara on Friday October 28, 2016, surrounded by loving family and friends, after a short battle with cancer. Everyone who knew Ches will remember him dearly for his smile, charm, and charismatic personality. Even during his last days at hospice, his bright smile could still light up the room.
Ches will be greatly missed by his devoted and loving wife Alice Elizabeth (Betty) of 66 years, their five children – Clyde (Judith), Larry (Donna), Brian (Lisa), Donna (Brian) and Scott (Cindy) and their chosen Bequian/Canadian son Amos Hanson (wife Alice, children Nathan and Nyah). Also mourning his passing will be grandchildren Lisa (Ryan), David, Craig, Kim, Trish (Shane), Allison (Marc), Michael (Laura), Stephen (Chelsea), chosen Bequian granddaughter Gaynor Kydd and three great grandchildren – Ethan, Alexa and Lucas. Ches is also survived by brothers Charles (Laura) and Sheldon (Marjorie) and sister-in-law Mary Fulton. He was predeceased by brother Ercil and sisters Vivian, Janice, Jean, and Verbena.
Ches was born on Portapique Mtn., Nova Scotia on Sept. 5, 1926 to Winfred & Pansy Fulton. He joined the army shortly before the end of the WW II, and having trained in CFB Petawawa, found that life looked much brighter in Ontario. Upon discharge, he moved to St. Catharines to live with his sister Jean, and soon met Betty Hunter, who he married on August 26, 1950. They were subsequently blessed with five children. After working at English Electric and then Penzer Products, Ches started his own successful business (Fulton Manufacturing Ltd.) in 1969. Upon retirement in 1993, Ches and Betty sold the business to their son Larry, allowing Ches and Betty to move to Huntsville, the place where they had honeymooned. The lovely rolling countryside of Muskoka reminded Ches of his home province, Nova Scotia. During their 23 years in Huntsville, Ches and Betty became great friends with Ken and Karen Hewitt (their Huntsville family), and many other close friends within the community and at All Saints’ Church, Parish of the Good Shepherd. Ches enjoyed curling, golfing, church and his morning coffee with his buddies at McDonald’s.
When Ches received his diagnosis of bladder cancer in early 2016, he and Betty decided to move back to St. Catharines to be closer to family, who assisted them during this very difficult period.
We are extremely grateful to his palliative care nurses Judy, Darlene and Charlene; to the entire staff at Hospice Niagara who provided wonderful, attentive care; and to the many friends and family who were always by his side throughout his seven-month battle with cancer.
The family will receive friends at Hulse & English Funeral Home, 75 Church St., St. Catharines on Wednesday, November 2 from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. and from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.
