JARVIN: Walter Alexander Jarvin. Passed away peacefully at Brandon Regional Health Centre on February 28, 2016 in his 91st year.  Walter was born on April 2, 1925 to Alec and Sophia Jarvin in Brandon, Manitoba. Walter grew up and attended school in Brandon. He had two older brothers, Ed (deceased) and Clem and one younger sister, Lavinia (Lovie).  His father, Alec, worked for CN Rail where his older brothers also eventually found their careers as a wire chief and telecommunications technician. While In Grade 11, Walter joined the Canadian Pacific Railway. When the war effort was asking for enlistees, Walter followed his brothers to service but chose the Royal Canadian Air Force.  Walter met the love of his life, Millie Tarnowski, after the war and convinced her to marry him by promising her father he would build her a house. That original house still stands at the corner of First and Lorne. Millie and Walter got married at St. Augustine's Church on 30 September 1950.  This past September, they celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary. Son Kenneth was born in 1955. During his tenure with CP Rail, Walter became a locomotive engineer and was very involved in the United Transportation Union. He held many positions such as President, Treasurer, Local Chairperson, Legislative Rep, Convention Delegate and a member of the General Committee of Adjustment. He was also a member of the International Board of Appeals, Senior Vice Chairman and Secretary Treasurer of the International Brotherhood - Western lines. Walter always placed the well being of his union brothers as his prime consideration. Walter, Millie and Kenn enjoyed numerous long car journeys throughout the US and Mexico, and their mighty Mercury Park Lane had its wheels dipped in the Atlantic, Pacific and Gulf of Mexico. Walter retired in 1985 after 42 years with CP Rail.  He then assisted wife Millie with her business, Jarvin Lighting. After the close of the store, Walter and Millie travelled to exotic locales such as Guatamala and Belize. He was also an avid fisherman and greatly enjoyed trips near and not so near with close railroad buddies such as Herbie Gudz. At 71 years of age, Walter built a magnificent home on Hanbury Place (North Hill) and along with Millie, initially developed the area now known as Sir Winston Churchill Park. He was so proud of this accomplishment and the enjoyment it brought the area residents. Walter and Millie continued grooming and maintaining the park for many years with flowers and seating until the City of Brandon took over maintenance and later developed Hanbury Hill. Walter is survived by his loving wife Millie and son Kenneth (Wendy); brother Clem and wife Jacquie Jarvin, and sister Lavinia Curran.  He was predeceased by his parents and brother Edward Jarvin.  A service to celebrate Walter’s life was held at Brockie Donovan Chapel, Friday, March 4, 2016.  Donations may be made to the Brandon Regional Health Centre Foundation, 150 McTavish Avenue East, Brandon, Manitoba, R7A 2B3.

HUBBARD: On Monday, February 29, 2016 George Raymond Hubbard passed away at his residence, Fairview Home, Brandon. Born in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia on July 5, 1920, he was the son of the late William and Emilia (Connolly) Hubbard.

The last survivor from a family of twelve, George was predeceased by brothers Donald, George (infancy), Johnny and Robert; sisters Marjorie, Angelina, Beatrice, Jeanette, Madlen, Gladys, and Pauline. Uncle Hub had various jobs in Yarmouth, before joining the military. After returning from the war, Hub worked briefly in Labrador, but soon decided to come to Manitoba to be near his sister. He loved working as a roofer for Cumming and Dobbie but didn't like the seasonal work. He finally got hired on at Shilo where he spent twenty-five years. After retirement, Hub moved to Nova Scotia briefly, but didn't enjoy the weather, so he returned to Manitoba. He was a sixty year member of the Brandon Legion. Playing cards and going to bingo were favourite pastimes. He loved coin collecting and at one time had a great collection of Bradford Exchange plates. He will be sadly missed.

He and the horse had to ride the train all the way from Rossburn to Toronto to participate. While working at his farm Bill got acquainted with a young Rossburn teacher, Mable Parsons, and they were married on July 14, 1951 in Fort Frances, Ontario.  In 1954 they sold his livestock and farm and moved to Roblin, Manitoba.  There he worked as store manager for the retail Co-op.  Bill enjoyed singing and was a member of the Rossburn and Roblin United Church choirs. In 1960 he was transferred to Brandon Co-op as the store manager.  In 1962 he worked at Western Grocers Wholesale as District Sales Supervisor until June of 1981 when he retired.  Bill enjoyed several sports including curling, ten pin bowling and golfing, and he won several trophies.  From 1962 until present (2000) he had been a member of the city golf and recreation centre.  He had assisted the golf pro in the junior golf program, was a member of the city golf advisory committee, and had also volunteered for 5 years as an instructor for a government sponsored golf program for 60 plus.  He volunteered as the drawmaster for a senior golf program for the years 1983-1998, and at the age of 83 plus years Bill was active in sporting activities. Bill loved golf and was shooting his age even into his late 70’s. Bill and Mable resided in Brandon where they not only took part in sporting activities but were proud of their garden at their Rosser Ave. property. Bill had a very nice demeanour and was a fine man.
