LEWIS: On Saturday August 23, Keith Lewis, our loving father & husband passed away suddenly at his Toronto home .  Dad was a family man in the true sense of the word. Born in 1926 to Cora and Wallace Lewis, the youngest of four children, Keith grew up on Beverley Street in Winnipeg and completed public school at Daniel MacIntyre Collegiate. Following his Naval training, Keith studied and graduated from Brandon College, then returned to Winnipeg. After marrying Joan Robinson in 1951, the couple moved to Brandon where Keith was initially an accountant with Winnipeg-based Laird Sprague and Company. Originally intending to stay in the city for a year or two at best, the young couple discovered friendships and a lifestyle well suited to raising a family. The planned short-term relocation to the Wheat City lasted 35 years. Keith enjoyed a fulfilling career with as vice-president of the Brandon Sun. In 1968 he left the newspaper and returned to public practice as a partner with Donovan and Stone Chartered Accountants. The Brandon- based firm eventually merged with Dunwoody and Company and after a long career in Brandon, Keith and Joan moved to Toronto in 1986 when he was appointed national partner. Keith retired in 1991. A devoted father, Keith will be lovingly remembered by his children for the wonderful memories he provided at home, during summers at the Clear Lake cabin, vacations cruising the continent in the station wagon, and later family ski trips. Whether it was sailing, tennis, water skiing, or downhill, their dad was always active, many times taking up the activities they enjoyed so he could be closer to them. Because of their kid’s involvement in competitive sports, Keith and Joan spent countless hours officiating with both the Manitoba Track and Field Association and the Manitoba Alpine Ski Association. He could always be counted on for never-ending support, and the guidance and encouragement he gave each of his children allowed them to achieve personal and professional goals. Keith’s record of community service includes tenures on the board and committees of the Provincial Exhibition of Manitoba, Brandon General Hospital, Brandon Chamber of Commerce and he was an active member of the Kinsmen and Rotary Club. He became a Fellow of the Chartered Accountants (FCA)in 1983. Predeceased by Joan  (1990) . Keith is survived by his wife Helen, and children  Lawrence (Pamela), Jeffrey, and Barbara (Rod) and grandchildren Paige, James, Olivia, and Mikala. A private family service was held in Toronto on August 28th, following cremation.

LONEY: Harvey Ray Loney. With his wife and daughter beside him, Harv slipped away August 27, 2014, one month short of his 75th birthday. Harvey was born September 28, 1939 to Eva (Senkbeil) and Lester Loney in the R.M. of Whitehead, Manitoba and lived in Kemnay for several years until his parents built a new home in Brandon. Even though he had many jobs, Harv’s life was trucking, and he spent many, many years on the road. One of his first jobs was alongside his dad - gravelling. He owned & operated and worked for several different companies throughout the years. In 2006 after 26 years of trucking in Alberta, we moved back to Hartney, MB where he continued to truck until his health forced him to retire. He always said he never missed the trucking as much as visiting with the clients, especially farmers. Harv was a risk taker and one was sky diving. He loved it and the freedom he felt. He was probably one of the first skydivers around Hartney and jumped at Hartney Flying Club breakfasts and just for fun. It certainly was an experience for Elmer Hicks to have Harv jump from his little 2-seater plane! He loved motorcycles and owned a Gold Wing while in Calgary. One of his best trips was with a good friend out to Vancouver, down the west coast to California, across to Vegas and back to Calgary. Harv owned a 1939 Model A and he babied that car. He always had it ready to take the grandkids or the neighbors grandkids for a ride. He took my dad and Joe Thomas in the Hopper’s Day Parade one year and Joe’s comment was “it’s a good day for a ride in a Model A”. Unfortunately for health reasons Harv had to part with the car and it was a very sad day for him. Harv loved kids..all kids. He spent 2 years coaching Centennial Little League and one year coaching hockey. The kids loved him and always called him “Coach” wherever they saw him. He loved Hallowe’en and always tried to be home so he could see the little ones come to the door for candy. His own kids always went to Harv for advice and they certainly got it whether they liked it or not!!! He was adamant that the kids and grandkids get an education and be involved with sports, cadets, brownies, dance..whatever it took to keep them “off the streets”. He was so proud of his grandchildren and loved each and every one of them. Grandpa will be missed. In 2005 Harv had Triple A surgery. Working and living in Calgary afterwards was just too much so we moved to Hartney. He loved the “small” town atmosphere and made some great friends here. He missed walking to “Dairy Queen” for a sundae but alas truckin’ through Souris he found his favourite Maple Walnut sundae at Par West. Harv’s health declined over the past 8 years and things were never easy for him but throughout it all he never complained and took each new diagnosis with determination and strength. Harv leaves to mourn his wife, Shirley (Lowe), his daughters Michelle (Jason), Brayden, Jenna and Brooke of Oakburn; Leane, (Cory), Joel and Taylor of Calgary; Lori, (Graham) Taryn of Calgary; son Derek. He also leaves a sister Audrey (Herb)of Lacombe; brother in law Arnold (Brenda) Matthew, several nephews and nieces and cousins. Our family would like to express our heartfelt thanks to Dexter of Kowalchuk’s Funeral Home and Rev. Doug Craig for the service; Lorne Robson and the choir for the music. Thanks to Diane for arranging the luncheon. We cannot express in words our thanks to Dr. Stone and staff at Souris Hospital who showed Harv such TLC. To the many friends and family, our sincere thanks for your acts of kindness..baking, cards and flowers, phone calls, hugs, a kind word.
I love you Harv.

Joan and Colin were casually acquainted in Brandon in the early 1950’s and a chance meeting in Clear Lake (Wasagaming) in the summer of 1956 rekindled the friendship, the rest is history. They were married in Brandon in 1957 and lived in Lynn Lake, Manitoba until their move to Winnipeg in 1960, where they raised their children. She and Colin were involved in square and round dancing for over 40 years and did much travelling from coast to coast to coast in both Canada and the USA. She loved gardening, especially her roses, she also loved to sew, making her own wedding dress and her daughter’s, many dance clothes as well as quilting and knitting for her children, the Church and the Christmas Cheer Board and was involved in many church activities with the UCW. The family would like to thank and acknowledge all the nurses and staff at the Middlechurch Home of Winnipeg for the exceptional care and compassion given to Joan.

ADAIR: William “Brock” Adair of Shilo, passed away peacefully at the Assiniboine Centre on Tuesday, September 9, 2014 at the age of 74 years. Brock was born in Ontario on April 3, 1940. At age 17, he joined the military. He served his country proudly in postings to Whitehorse, St. Sylvestre, Quebec, Metz, France, Foymount, Ontario, and ended his military career in Shilo. While posted in Shilo, he also served in Cyprus and Alert. Brock retired from the military in 1977 and went to work for Westman Cable in Brandon for a few years, then worked at the water plant in Shilo until he retired in 1996. One of Brock’s greatest pleasures was his little business that he ran from home. He could always be seen running around the neighborhood, summer and winter, on his little red tractor. He installed satellite TV, cell phones in your vehicle, did videos for special events, edited pictures, cut grass, landscaping, and cleared driveways in the winter. Needless to say, Brock was not one for sitting still. When he was not working at his business or on the house, he could be found out in the bush with his friend Murray on their quads, mapping out new trails. Brock’s other passion was his motorcycles and scooters. If it would fit in or on his bike – that is what he rode. His car usually had the same tank of gas in the fall that it did in the spring. Brock has never been a suit and tie kind of guy. He wore his military uniform proudly, but the tie went on at the last minute and came off before he got to the car. He was most comfortable in his favorite pair of blue jeans. In honor of Brock, the family and pallbearers will be wearing their favorite pair of jeans, and anyone attending the service is invited to do the same. Brock was predeceased by his mom and dad, Joe and Jean Adair, his wife Dawn, his daughter Debi and his very good friend, Beryl McDonald. Left to mourn his passing are his son Dale (Sherry), his grandchildren Jody McConechy (Michelle), Charity and Nick, and one great grandchild, Taryn McConechy. A celebration of Brock’s life will be held at the Brockie Donovan Chapel, 332-8th Street, on Wednesday, September 17, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. with Funeral Celebrant, Kim Lewarne officiating. Interment will follow at the Brandon Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Brock may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, 415-1st Street, Brandon, MB, R7A 2W8.
