GARDINER: Irving Leo Gardiner of Minto, MB passed away peacefully, with family by his side, on October 29, 2012 at the Brandon Assiniboine Centre, at the age of 79. Irving was born March 7, 1933 in Minto, MB into the family of Donald and Gertrude, and older brother Keith. Irving was raised and schooled in Minto. In 1950, he started farming and also had small jobs in the area. While working, he met Nellie Lamb and they were married in 1953, and moved to the farm as well. Irving started with the RM of Whitewater as a heavy equipment operator. One year, his team won the best mile award. As the roads were completed in the area, they continued their lives on the farm. They started their family in 1955 with son Leo, daughter Ellen in 1957, and son Dwight in 1961. Irving was interested in a lot of things, but one of his greatest passions was airplanes and flying, getting his pilot’s license in 1961. After getting his license, he purchased his first plane and many more after that. A few of these planes were used many years for aerial spraying. His favorite plane was a Fairchild PT 23 which he and a friend restored. Irving was a member of the Manitoba Flying Farmers and stood as President for a year. He was also a founding member of the Common Wealth Air Museum in Brandon, MB. In the late 70's, Leo started farming with Irving, and Dwight joined them in the early 80’s. Irving and Nellie’s marriage came apart in the late 80’s. A tragic loss hit the family in 1992 with the passing of son, Leo. Dwight continued farming with his father until Irving’s passing. Irving loved horse trading, motorcycles, RC model planes, camping, fishing, cribbage and travelling to many places. For the last 20 years, he spent his winters in Phoenix, Arizona, and 11 of those were spent with special friend, Audrey Shaw. In 2010, Irving slowed down farming due to health issues, but never could quite bring himself to leave the farm, nor the shop as he was always tinkering. He is survived by his daughter Ellen Klassen (Darrell), granddaughter Mel (Joe Rustenburg), son Dwight Gardiner (Debbie), granddaughters Kayla, Amanda (Mitchell), great-granddaughters, (Asha, Rylee and Chloe), nephews Bret and Kirk.

CROSSON: Kenneth Edwin (Ken). With bittersweet sadness the family of Ken Crosson announce his peaceful passing on Saturday, October 27th at Hillcrest Place in Brandon, Manitoba. Ken was born December 26, 1930 at Moosomin, Saskatchewan, the sixth of eight children to John and Olive Crosson. Life as a child on the farm at McAuley was described by Ken, “We were not wealthy in material things but very wealthy in family life.” Large Sunday suppers with always a baseball game and a sing song with Mom at the piano. Ken quit school at an early age to help his father on the farm, as brothers Fred and Don were overseas in active duty during World War II. Ken’s working life began at age 17. In the early years he drove a cream truck, a gravel truck and worked for local farmers. In 1957, he attended Manitoba Technical Institute and attained a welder’s certificate, which led him to construction work and the oil fields in Virden. Ken moved from Virden to the north and worked for Mannex Construction. He drove heavy duty equipment, building 54 miles of railway and the South Saskatchewan Power Dam. Ken returned to McAuley in the 60’s and bought Crosson’s Transfer which he operated for 11 years. Ken’s final employment was as an underground supervisor in the potash mine at Rocanville. He worked shift work for 11 years; this allowed him to farm land purchased from Phyllis’ father, Gregor Jamieson. His love of the farm continued, as Ken was fortunate to be able to go to the Lowes farm and feel useful doing field work or odd jobs. He especially loved harvest and meals in the field. Ken’s life was filled with “girls” as he made a home for Phyllis and two daughters Brenda and Marna. Soon his world increased by one, Shelley arrived! As time moved on the “home of girls” turned to a haven for teenagers. Ken’s reprieve was playing baseball, playing and coaching hockey, curling, fishing, hunting and dancing! The family enjoyed many camping trips and good times at the cottage at Clear Lake. The next stage of life brought sons-in-law and grandchildren into the picture. Ken was proud of each and every one and their accomplishments -in sports, 4-H and academics. In later life, Ken and Phyllis enjoyed traveling and new friends when they left McAuley and moved to Fort Smith, NWT and later Sault St. Marie, MI. They retired to Brandon in 2006 and became a part of community life in Carlton Place. For the final two years of Ken’s life, Hillcrest Place was HOME! Ken was an active member in McAuley Legion, served on the board of the Rutherglen United Church and was on the volunteer fire brigade for over 30 years. Ken is survived by his wife Phyllis (Jamieson) of 46 years, daughters and sons- in-law Brenda and Barry Lowes, Marna and Mel Biesinger, Shelley and Glenn Lowes. Granddaughters, Sheena (Derek) Goodbrand, Brooke (Cameron) Canart and Cassidy Beck. Grandsons - Justin (Jolene), Nevin (Candace) and Stacy Lowes. Great grandchildren - Alexis Lowes, Tennessee and Dixie Goodbrand, Kaiden and Austyn Lowes. Sister Jean Backlin, brother Jim Crosson and sister-in-law, Janie Crosson, brother-in-law Howard Frape and Aunt Gertie Crosson as well as many nieces and nephews. A celebration of Ken’s life was held at Brockie Donovan Chapel in Brandon on Thursday, November 1, 2012. Ken was laid to rest in McAuley Cemetery. Memorial tributes in memory of Ken may be made to the charity of your choice or to Hillcrest Place Family Advisory, 930-26th St. Brandon, MB, R7B 2B3.

BLACK: Peacefully in his home, on Saturday, November 3, 2012, John “Errol” Black, passed away at the age of 73. Earlier that same afternoon, surrounded by his family and friends, Errol had been the guest of honour at a celebration in which he was awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. This joyous award ceremony was only one of many commemorating Errol’s tremendous contributions to his community and tireless efforts in the pursuit of social justice, more generally. Born in the East End of Brandon, Errol was the son of Roberta and Tommy Black, a working class family of Irish-Canadian background who were devoted political activists of the union movement. Entrenched from his youth, Errol continued to further the goals he was raised by and maintained a life long, dogged devotion to the East End. For over 30 years, Errol taught economics at the University of Brandon retiring as a Professor Emeritus and the author of countless publications. Teaching by example and embodying his values, Errol spent three terms as a committed city councilor for Riverview ward, over a decade and numerous terms on the Executive of the Manitoba NDP, and was also a candidate for federal politics. In his political and academic life, Errol was known for his uncompromising and passionate pursuit of fairness and social democracy. His “letters to the editor,” to numerous different publications, provided an almost daily column of unremitting, fervent and well reasoned argument. In his private life, Errol drew his strength from Margaret, his beloved soul mate and wife of over 50 years. With Margaret by his side, Errol showed himself to be the consummate charmer. He was smart, fun loving and adventurous; A man of compassion, a man of integrity and a man of grace. He enjoyed music, birds, nature and sharing a good laugh. Errol is survived by his wife, Margaret, his children Sean (and Tammy), Dennis, Thomas (and Lauren) and his grandchildren, Kyla (and Dustin), Amber (and Karl), Michael, Desiree (and Andrew), Brandon, Avner, Eytan and Ronen, great grandchildren Kristine, Dawn and Alex and his brother, Derek (and Bev). As in life, the Black family shares their private loss with the greater community who have shown a tremendous public outpouring of grief - a true testament to the legacy of the remarkable figure that was Errol. The family wishes to thank everyone for their enormous support and well wishes during this difficult time. Donations may be made to the ALS Society or the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives.
