Sometimes people come into your life and leave an indelible mark. Pops was such a man. His love for his girls and his grandsons was very evident. We loved spending time with him as we supported the Varsity Blues all across this province. He was always front and centre at games; whether in his special seat at the AC or in the front row at every University gym. He loved his basketball and was a comforting fixture at every game. All the players had a moment to greet Pops before a game and he always had a kind word and a great laugh. He will be truly missed. Our sincere sympathies to you all.

I remenber a trip that Eddie and I took to Thunder Bay to visit his family and friends in my brand new 1971 Chevy Vega. First thing he said when he got into the car "Geez Ted, couldn't you get a bigger car!". At that we both started laughing and rub shoulders all the way to Thunder Bay and back. He will be missed.

Dear Cindy, Linda, Kelly and Bev and family,
I was so sad to hear of the loss of your father. My memories of him are larger than life. A kind man who always treated me with much love and always spent time to visit when I was around. He was "grandpa" to my girls and of course always offered them cookies. I remember him being a man who could pretty much "fix anything". You girls were his life and I'm so sure he is looking at you all now completely satisfied with the job he did being your dad. Do not be sad for too long. He's up in the big house with your mom, and together they will be Angels watching over you. Be blessed and happy to know that you had such a wonderful life with him. Love you all. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Mr. McIlwain was the nicest man who cared deeply about people. He treated Ray and I with kindness and always genuinely wanted to know how life was treating us. He raised four of the strongest women I know, especially my girl Cindy.

He followed Mrs. McIlwain to Toronto.

Now he has followed her home.

Dear Linda:
We were so sorry to learn that your dad had passed away. Whenever I feel sad about leaving Regal Rd. I reflect on all the good times I spent in your back yard, on your back porch, in the kitchen and ESPECIALLY you, Nick, your boys and your amazing dad. I can see him sitting in his mobile chair with a "full face" mischieveous grin. HE WILL BE MISSED by so many and we will see you Wednesday evening.
Love,
Marilyn
