HALLIDAY - After a short, brave fight with cancer, Lindsay passed away on Monday, October 19, 1998. He will be missed so very, very much by his beloved Ruth. He also leaves to mourn, in Scotland, his brother Jim (Ettie), nieces, nephews and his Aunt Gladys (whom he affectionately called Gladeyes).
Lindsay served with the R.A.F. and after a few years he left to join the Lanarkshire Constabulary as a Con-stable. Law, order and a firm be-liever in truth and fair play served him well in this chosen field.
In 1957, Lindsay emigrated from Scotland to Canada and worked in security before joining the West Vancouver Police Force in 1959. He was part of this team for 12 years.
Lindsay always wanted to have his own business. He left the Police Force and purchased a hotel in New Hazelton, B.C. After a few years he realized this was not his goal and returned to the world of "law". He joined a firm as Private Investigator and stayed with them until being employed with the Provincial Government in Court Services where he became Assistant Manager of Court Clerks for the Supreme Court of B.C.
For 25 years, Lindsay was actively involved in Boy Scouts. As a Scout he gained the "King's Scout" Award. He started a group cub pack in Scotland and continued service in West Vancouver as an Assistant Scout Master at which time he achieved the Gilwell Award and thereafter as Scout Master.
Lindsay was a member of Capilano Power Squadron for ten years and served as Proctor and later elected to Squadron Commander.
During its formation and organization in 1979, Lindsay joined the Canadian Marine Rescue Auxiliary (also known as Coast Guard Auxiliary). In 1982, he was trained by Canadian Coast Guard as a Courtesy Examiner and in 1990 achieved instructor status in their Search and Rescue Prevention Courtesy Examiner Program. In 1991, he was appointed Auxiliary Search and Rescue Prevention Officer for the British Columbia Region and was Deputy director of Boating Safety at the time of his death.
In 1993, Lindsay took early retirement from the Provincial Government to start his own business - Halliday Laser Cartridge Renew.
Lindsay's warm, caring nature and ready smile won him many friends - dear friends. He lit up the room with his personality and humor. There are not enough words to express our feelings at the loss of this wonderful man.
A Memorial Service will be held at the Hollyburn Funeral Home, 1807 Marine Drive, West Vancouver, at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 24, 1998. Lindsay wished to be cremated and his ashes scattered over the water at Point Atkinson. This wish will be carried out with assistance of friends in the Coast Guard at a later date. In lieu of flowers donations for a memorial bench in Lindsay's name would be appreciated.

BALLINGER - Robert (Bob) November 7, 1919-October 21, 1998
After a short, brave fight with cancer Bob Ballinger passed away on Wednesday, October 21 at Lions Gate Hospital. He will be missed by all that knew him but most especially by his wife of almost 56 years, Margaret, his children and sisters. He leaves to mourn his passing Margaret, two daughters, Sandra Fairall (Dennis) of Oxfordshire, England, Karen (Gerry Mullen) of Victoria, B.C. and two sons Paul (Sandi) Coquitlam and Eric (Karen) Pitt Meadows. His seven grandchildren: Robert, Jeremy, Marc, Derrick, Ryan, Marsha and Breanne; great-granddaughter Emily; and two surviving sisters Mary Oulton (Wilfred) in Chepstow, Gwent and Eva Shore (Marvyn) in Langley thought the world of him. He was predeceased by his parents Robert and Emma and by sisters Christine, Marguerite and Isabel in England.
Born in Woodcroft, Gloucestershire, Bob apprenticed at a young age in England as a draughtsman with Fairfield S/B & Engineering and worked principally in steel fabrication throughout his working life. He and Margaret came to Canada with a young daughter Sandra in 1946, settling first in Montreal, employed with Dominion Bridge. Early in 1948 they relocated to Vancouver. Bob worked the steel industry in Vancouver for 50 years, with the exception of a 5 year sojourn in Edmonton. There he opened a steel fabricating company Britain Steel Ltd. Bob cemented many lifelong business relationships - most especialy with World Fabricators Ltd. in Surrey with whom he worked many years. Bob was respected for his knowledge of the feast and famine of the steel fabricating business and enjoyed it thoroughly.
Bob was a gentle kind man who expressed himself with an economy of words and a helping hand. An avid gardener that reflected his English heritage he always had a full bird feeder and greenhouse. A great lover of music, especially enjoying old hymns which he was initiated into singing in the choir in Chepstow, UK. Bob remembered his roots and sponsored new immigrants to come to Canada to pursue the opportunites he and Margaret enjoyed.
Bob's parents' headstone is beautifully engraved "Sing unto the Lord a new song", which seems appropriate. A remembrance will be held from 2 to 6 p.m. on Bob's 79th birthday November 7, 1998 at 657 Folsom Street, Coquitlam, B.C. V3J 5A4. Phone 931-4035, - we will not hold a service at his explicit request. Friends are invited to spend this special time with us.
