HADDAD: Canon Joseph Haddad, Q.C. It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Joseph Haddad on March 21, 2010. Joseph was born to Abraham and Annie Haddad on November 19, 1917 at Amaranth, Manitoba, where he spent most of his youth. After he attended high school, he entered United College (now University of Winnipeg) where he obtained his B.A. degree in 1940. He then spent 4 years at the Manitoba Law School, graduating in 1944 with L.L.B. and was subsequently called to the Manitoba Bar. In December 1944, Joseph came to Brandon and joined the Law firm of Kerr, McQuarrie and Meighen which later became and still exists as Meighen Haddad and Company, where he practiced law until retiring in 1987. During his practice, he was very active in community work and was also active in the Manitoba Bar Association and the Canadian Bar Association. He was past President of both the Manitoba Bar Association and the Western Manitoba Bar Association; he served time as a Bencher of the Law Society of Manitoba. He was appointed a Queens Counsel in 1963. During his practice he also did legal aid work. In his younger days he also served on the Boards and as President of a number of organizations such as the Childrens Aid Society of Manitoba, the Lions Club of Brandon, the Canadian Arthritis & Rheumatism Society (now The Arthritis Society) and others. In 1944, Joseph married Katie Beatrice Ambrose and they had two children Kathryn Ann and David Joel. He was predeceased by his wife Katie in 1987 and subsequently married Thelma Skeoch. Joseph was also predeceased by his parents, two brothers George and Edward and two sisters Georgette and Josephine. He is survived by his loving wife Thelma, his daughter Kathryn (Dustin) of Burnaby, B.C., his son David (Karen) and their children of Qualicum Beach, B.C., brother John in Carberry and his sister Evelyn Joyce (Mona) in Nanaimo, B.C., two step-daughters, Cindy Cruise of Winnipeg and Cathy (Jurgen) Figura and their children of Aldergrove, B.C. and son-in-law, Alan Cruise of Brandon. During his lifetime, Joseph was a devoted member and supporter of St. Matthews Cathedral having been such for approximately 55 years and during which time served a number of times on the Vestry. In 1967, Joseph was appointed Chancellor of the Diocese of Brandon by the late Bishop Norris and served in this role for a period of 26 years. During this period, the late Bishop John Conlin made him an honorary Lay Canon of St. Matthews Cathedral. Fraternally, Joseph was a Master Mason and belonged to all the Scottish Rite Lodges. He was also a Shriner and past President of the Brandon and District Shrine Club. During his younger days, Joseph loved the outdoors including fishing and hunting and his favourite sport was baseball, but most of all he loved gardening and making pickles and baking shortbread. Joseph also loved to travel, particularly in Canada and the United States. The Funeral Service will be held at St Matthews Cathedral at 403-13th Street, Brandon, on Friday, March 26, 2010 at 2:00 p.m. with The Rt. Rev. Jim Njegovan and The Very Rev.

BINKLEY: With great sadness, the family of Victor M. Binkley, announce his peaceful passing in Kelowna, B.C. on March 16, 2010 just two weeks short of his 91st birthday. Vic is survived by his four children, Bob (Shirley), Manse (Anna), Laurie (Kevin), Rick (Trish), eleven cherished grandchildren, four great-grand children, his sisters-in-law Phyllis Neilsen and Ellen Manton, brother-in-law Gavin Neilsen (Joan), several nieces, nephews and cousins. Vic was predeceased by his beloved wife, Mae, his parents Olive and Mansel Binkley and his brother Jack Binkley (Aimee). Vic was born in Shaunavon, Saskatchewan on March 29th, 1919 and later moved with his family to Saskatoon where he obtained his Bachelor of Accounting Degree and his Chartered Accountant designation. He then acquired a Chrysler-Plymouth dealership in Brandon, Manitoba, which he operated successfully for the next 35 years. Active in the community, he served on the Board and later as Chair of Wawanesa Insurance for 25 years, was a tireless fundraiser for the Brandon Family YMCA in the early to mid 1960s and was instrumental in the early formation of the Brandon Area Foundation. Vic loved the car business, accounting, his trusty adding machine, going over the statements with the boys, entertaining family and friends at the Clear Lake cottage and Palm Desert condo, his morning ritual of coffee on the deck or patio, consistently getting up and down from 80 yards and in, flying his Cessna on a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon and listening to the music of Connie Francis and Theresa Brewer. His quiet, gentle demeanor and impeccable manners belied his quick wit, wonderful sense of humor and great smile. Our family wishes to thank the staff and caregivers at Orchard Manor Personal Care Home in Kelowna for the wonderful compassion and care shown to our father during his six years of residency. In accordance with Vics wishes, cremation has taken place with a private family celebration of Vics life to take place at a later date. The family respectfully requests that in lieu of flowers, a donation be made to the Brandon Family YMCA, 231-8th Street, Brandon, Manitoba R7A 3X2, a facility special to Vics heart, or to a charity of the donors choice.
Forever loved and remembered.
