Reg. No. 26493 - Joseph Pierre Homer Gerald Chauvin

Joseph Pierre Homer Gerald Chauvin

1948-2017

Joseph Pierre Homer Gerald Chauvin Joseph Pierre Homer Gerald Chauvin
Joseph Pierre Homer Gerald Chauvin

The unexpected passing of Joseph Pierre Homer Gerald Chauvin occurred at home on Sunday, April 9, 2017 from CHF. Born May 17, 1948 in Point-Aux-Roches, Ontario, he was the youngest of ten children of Alphonse and Clarida (Brouillette).

He will be extremely missed by his wife of 34 years, Donna (Dickinson). He was a Dadoo to two sons, Nicholas and Anthony (Jessica Bennett). He never really got to know his granddaughter, Charlie Grace. He will be sadly missed by his brothers and sisters, Agnes (Isreal) Mailloux of St. Catherines, Ont, Norman of Point-Aux-Roches, Ont, Lucille Russell of Maple Ridge, BC, Clarence (Rachael) of Point-Aux-Roches, Ont, and Denis (Paulette) of Windsor, Ont. He will also be missed by many nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, Joe was predeceased by his siblings, Louis, Marc, Estelle, and Marcel.

Big Joe (Gerry) joined the RCMP after high school. He transferred to many spots along the way such as Montreal, Campbellton, Bai-Ste. Anne, Bouctouche, Port Elgin, Saint John, Grand Bay-Westfield, and finally retired in Fredericton after 27 years of service. The next year he became a Park Warden at Mactaquac Park, retiring from there in 2016. Joe was a jack of all trades. His other business was "PORK Perfection", roasting pigs on the spit. (Not all the beer went to marinate the meat)

Joe was always big on family. He was one of the original planners of the Chauvin Reunion, The Chauvin Flag, the T-shirts, and the brass candle to be used at Chauvin Functions. He would never want to miss the Reunion, so he will be there this year as well at the family mass. He was stopped at so many airports because of his artificial hip and that family brass candle.

Some of Joe’s favorite things included scotch, jazz music, and the occasional cigar. His barbequing was the best! He always enjoyed having friends and family over for meals or calling passerby’s into the garage for a few rounds of "The Captain". If you weren’t up for a drink, there was always conversation and milk bones for the dogs.

Joe was very proud of his boy’s accomplishments and always participated with them. He received a lifetime volunteer’s award from the New Maryland Scouting Movement. He also received a HUGE Unsung Hero Trophy from the FHS football team in 2008. He will be remembered for many smelly cigars (to keep the mosquitos away!) at many a soccer game.

The family would like to invite relatives, friends, and coworkers to a visitation held at McAdam’s Funeral Home on Sunday, April 16, 2017 from 2:00 – 4:00 pm. A memorial service will be held on Monday, April 17, 2017 at 2:00 pm at St. Paul’s United Church with a reception to follow. For those wishing to make a donation, please consider the Diabetes Society (please find a cure!) or St. Paul’s United Church.

Cremation has taken place. Joe wished to be buried with his other family members in Point-Aux-Roches, Ontario.

Robert Bruce Rogerson

1951-2017

Robert Bruce Rogerson Robert Bruce Rogerson

Robert Bruce Rogerson passed in love and peace on March 14, 2017, in Fredericton, NB. Born in Halifax, NS, on September 1, 1951, he is the son of  the late Marie and James Rogerson. Bruce is survived by wife Deborah (nee MacArthur), daughter Sarah (Andy), son Tom (Jen), grandchildren Kaitlin and Joey, brother Jimmy (Ellen), a host of aunts and uncles,   and in-laws and nephews.

Bruce joined the RCMP in 1974 and retired in 2009 as Assistant Commissioner of Technical Operations. After graduation from training in Regina, SK, he worked in Liverpool, Cole Harbour and Halifax, NS, before being posted to Ottawa, ON, Fredericton, NB, and finally a swansong return to Ottawa.

In 2010, he came back to Fredericton to work for six years as the Director of Security at the University of New Brunswick.

He earned in 1984 a Bachelor of Economics degree from St. Mary’s University and, in 1986, a Public Administration Diploma from Dalhousie University before going on to achieve specialized policing certificates and diplomas. Bruce’s distinguished 35 year career with the force has been honoured with the 20 year Long Service Medal, 25 year Bronze Cross, 30 year Silver Clasp, 35 year Three Gold Clasp and a Commander’s Commendation.

Bruce was devoted to his work but his commitment to his career can’t hold a candle to his undying love and care for his family, most especially his guiding light and wife of 41 years.

He has been there for us every step and breath of the way, putting forward the lighter side of everything, cheering us on during the day and kissing us good-night. Bruce always put us first and supported us in every one of our aspirations and ambitions, from athletic to academic and all points between and beyond. He drove us around to our activities, both close to home and far away, and he drove us all to be our best.

With signature humour, cheerful wry wit, trademark twinkle, kindness, boundless enthusiasm and generosity, Bruce has brightened the lives of those he loved who, in return, so loved him.

He is greatly missed and fondly remembered.

Visitation will be held at McAdam’s Funeral Home, 160 York St., Fredericton, on Wednesday, March 22, from 2-4 and 7-9 pm. A memorial mass will be celebrated at St. Dunstan’s Catholic Church on Thursday, March 23, 2017 at 12:05 pm with Fr. Bill Brennan as celebrant. Interment will take place in the spring following a service to be held in Halifax, NS. Donations in Bruce’s memory can be made to the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Halifax (or any other chapter) or to a charity of the donor’s choice.

Passed away suddenly at home in Lombardy, Ontario on Wednesday, July 13, 2016 Herbert E. A. Milward at the age of 83. Beloved husband for over 55 years of Yvonne Milward (nee Smith). Predeceased by his parents Bert and Rose Milward (nee Remple) and sisters Celeste (late Eugene) Fedor and Ruth Evans. Dear brother of Bruce Milward and brother- in-law of J. Mavis McLaughlin. Fondly remembered by his nieces and nephews: Bonnie (Mark) Vine, Cathy McLaughlin, James (Mary) Swansburg, Loretta (Kim) Fedor, Lana (Ward) Fedor, Candace (Dominic) Holden, Kim (Steve) Henrich and Harvey (Susan) Fedor. Bert was born in Moosomin, Saskatchewan on August 26, 1932. He served 35 years with the RCMP in New Brunswick, Regina, Saskatchewan and lastly at Headquarters in Ottawa, Ontario. Following a fulfilling career Bert and Yvonne retired to Otter Lake almost 27 years ago and became actively involved in the community of Lombardy and Holy Trinity Anglican Church where Bert served as Warden as well as on other committees. His quick wit always left you laughing or smiling; he had a kind word to say to everyone and was known by everyone. Bert was also a longtime member of the Merrickville-based band "Swingbridge" and especially enjoyed playing the trumpet or trombone. He will be sadly missed by family and many friends in our community. Family and friends may pay their respects at the Blair & Son Funeral Home, 112 Beckwith St. N., Smiths Falls on Friday, July 15, 2016 from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. Funeral service in celebration of Bert's life will take place Saturday, July 16, 2016 at 11 a.m. at Holy Trinity Anglican Church, Lombardy. For those who wish, memorial donations may be made to Holy Trinity Anglican Church, Lombardy or the Ottawa Heart Institute. - See more at: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/ottawacitizen/obituary.aspx?n=herbert-milward&pid=180677155#sthash.lw9NVCDU.dpuf
