BAILEY: It is with sadness in our hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved father, grandfather and great grandfather, Thomas Roy Bailey. He quietly entered into rest in his 96th year, with family at his side, on Sunday, January 30, 2011 following a short illness. His presence will be greatly missed not only by his family but also by his many friends who were benefactors of his always caring and gentle ways. T. Roy, as he became affectionately known over the years, was born on September 5, 1915 on their now Centennial Farm in the Prosser District, the sixth child of the late Tom and Ida Bailey. He spent his lifetime contributing, in a variety of ways, to the community he loved. His contribution to the betterment of Carberry and North Cypress included serving on Municipal Council, Carberry Development Corporation, Vegetable Growers Association, Hospital Board, and United Church Board of Stewards and Session. He took a leadership role in starting the growing of potatoes in the area, constructing the Carberry Plains Lodge and current health facility, the Carberry Plains Recreation Centre, and helped to design the Sandhills Golf Course. He was a lifetime member of the Oddfellows and Rebekahs, organizations that he loyally served both locally and provincially. One his greatest sources of pleasure was the hosting of the Royal Family in 1970 on the family farm. His life constantly surrounded his family (whose activities he always supported), his church, the drop in centre and his favourite leisure activity, golf. In recent years his contributions have been recognized as he was inducted into the Manitoba Agricultural Hall of Fame and awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Carberry Chamber of Commerce. He always went about his business in a quiet and genuine way as his warm words of encouragement always brightened the days of those he met. No day was complete without his checking on the operation of the farm which is now managed by his grandson, Terry. Roy was married to Nora Froom for 45 years until her passing in 1986. They had three sons, Alan, Brian and Douglas. His 14 year marriage to Edith Ranson ended with her passing in 2002. Left to cherish his memory are sons Alan (Margie), Kim (Nick) Ciampanelli, Dean and Jack, Terry (Lori), Alana, Kelsey and Thomas; Brian (Jan), Jerilyn, Jaelyn, and Taylor Miscavish, Ryan, and Allison (Peter) Reid; Doug (Lynne), Susan (Mark) Dobell, Heather, and Warren (Marie) Bailey. He is also survived by his stepsons George, Allan and Neil Ranson along with their spouses and families. He was predeceased by his older siblings Vernon, Mary (Eyvindson), Marsden, Dorothy (Pearn), and Bessie. A service celebrating his life will be held in the Carberry United Church on Friday, February 4 at 2 pm. Officiating clergy will be Rev. Peggy Reid with interment in the Carberry Plains Cemetery. In lieu of flowers friends may make donations, in his memory, to Broken Wings Mission Inc.(Haiti), c/o Peter Eyvindson, P.O. Box 51, Clavet Saskatchewan, S0K 0Y0.

McLEOD: Bruce F. McLeod, May 10, 1913-January 25, 2011 With sadness in our hearts and joy at having had him in our lives for so long, we announce the death in Vancouver of Bruce McLeod, devoted brother, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and wonderful friend. Bruce leaves a legacy of love, gentle compassion and Christian caring. Born in Manitoba in 1913, he grew up on a farm, learning early the necessity and rewards of hard work. He was educated as a flight instrument mechanic and served in the RCAF during the war. With his wife Evelyn, nee Harland, the love of his life for 68 years until her death in 2009, he raised three children in Winnipeg. His skill with all things mechanical was a constant thread in his working career, leading to a position as supervisor for automotive mechanics in Manitoba. Always curious, resourceful and open to new adventures, he and Evelyn moved to Bowen Island after his retirement, where he acquired new skills and quite literally built a beautiful new home. They lived there until 2006 when they moved to Clarendon Court in Vancouver where staff and residents welcomed them into a new community. Bruce was a lifelong active member of the United Church and a progressive community leader, honoured and respected by all those who knew him, but the centre of his life was his family. Bruce was the beloved father of Reta (Ian McKay), John (Sharon) and Deborah (John Miller) and cherished grandfather of Layla, Emma, Monique, John, Rachel, Meredith (Malcolm), David and Amy, as well as great-grandfather of Manny. He will also be deeply missed by his brothers Angus (Dorothy), Jack (Dona), sister-in-law Joan, Evelyn's brother Earle Harland (Florence) and his nephews and nieces who loved him. Burial was held on Saturday, January 29 at 1:00 p.m. at Capilano View Cemetery, followed by a celebration of Bruce's life at Deer Lake United Church in Burnaby at 2:30 p.m.
