Wally died peacefully April 23, 2008 in his 91st year. Wally descended from United Empire Loyalists and was the only child of Nelson and Sarah (Poapst) Wert. Born July 3, 1917 in Avonmore, Ontario, he graduated from Radio College, Toronto, as a Commercial Radio Operator in 1937. During WWII, Wally served in the Royal Canadian Corps of Signals (#2 Special Wireless) and was awarded a special mention in dispatches for his work in Britain and Europe.

Wally resumed work at RCA Victor, aligning and testing the first television set built in Canada in 1948. In 1957 the family moved to Chalk River, Ontario, where Wally designed and built their home while working as an instruments technician at Atomic Energy of Canada. For 18 years he partnered in "Electronic Services", a home-based radio and television repair business. Wally retired in 1978 and two years later moved with Aleen to White Rock, BC, where he continued to document his family genealogy until the end of his life. He self-published two books of his family history and a third about his war experience in Special Wireless. Wally was predeceased by daughter Joyce (Fairbanks) in 1993, and is survived by wife Aleen, daughters Anne (Sze-Yin) Yuen and Karen (John) Richardson, son-in-law Bryan Fairbanks (Rebecca), 3 Fairbanks and four Yuen grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.

GUIMOND, Patrick (Moe)
(1935 - 2008 Retired Manager Loblaws)
Moe passed stoically, with acceptance after a brief battle with cancer in Marianhill on Friday April 11, 2008, surrounded with love. Moe left his birthplace of Escuminac NB in 1952 and moved to Ottawa where he met his future wife Elizabeth. A Loblaws promotion transferred Moe and Beth to Renfrew in 1960 and together they shared the greater part of his life fulfilled in the Ottawa Valley, predominantly in Deep River and Pembroke. Moe retired after a 40 year career with Loblaws where he loved working for and with the public. In the 1960's he was a competitive broomball player and bowler. After retiring he enjoyed golfing daily with other community retirees. He was a lifetime Montreal Canadiens Fan. Moe's love of nature and wildlife was infectious and he will be fondly remembered as a hunter (Mackey Creek Hunt Camp), gardener ( Communities in Bloom) and birder (Bird Count). Moe was a skilled second generation carpenter. Many of his copper topped Purple Martin houses sit tall in the Ottawa Valley awaiting the annual return of his feathered friends. His absence will be duly noted by the neighborhood dogs. Family and friends will remember his love of country music and avid story telling ability which always was conducted with that wonderful grin. He was very active in his community and always willing to lend a hand to anyone who asked. Even after the onset of Parkinson's disease he continued to be an active volunteer with the Meals on Wheels Program and the Diabetes Association (Bingo Country). But, most of all, Moe will be remembered as a warm, humble, kind spirited individual, who treated everyone he met with interest and respect. He was a treasure to all who were touched by him. May his spirit soar like an eagle in the Heavens above. Loving husband of Elizabeth (nee Marchand). Devoted father of Jackie (Dennis) Royal of Petawawa and Charlene (Rev. Kevin) Mahon, Petrolia ON.
