MASON, Lionel Keith - Surrounded by family and friends, passed away peacefully on Friday, April 11, 2014, at Hill House Hospice in Richmond Hill. He was well cared for in his final hours by Dr. Brian Berger and the staff of Hill House. Lionel was born February 17, 1934, at the Head of St. Margaret's Bay, Nova Scotia (hence his love of lobster) to the late Asa Singleton Mason and Nellie Maude (Hatt) Mason. Predeceased by first wife of eighteen years, Margaret Eleanor Smith and brothers: Darrell (Margaret), Eric (Geraldine), Ralph (survived by Bernice), younger brother Singleton (survived by Shirley); sister Juanita (who died at birth) and still living, his favourite sister Barbara Peart (Richard). Lionel will be greatly missed by those he leaves behind, especially his loving wife and devoted friend Lynda Ann (Ashton) of thirty-three years, his two loving and supportive children: Stephen Keith Mason, Lynn Louise Moore (Bill) and grandchildren Jessica and Kory Moore, as well as many nieces and nephews; in fact, he was very pleased to hear he was going to be a great-grandfather. Just this past Saturday, Lionel was talking about the Woodchippers, a bowling league where he made many lasting friendships over the past thirty plus years. As a result of his dedication, he received the Governor General's Caring Canadian Award. Lionel was known for his wonderful sense of humour, his love of parties and dancing and he was grateful that he was able to enjoy his eightieth birthday. The "big five under the eye" and "gets me right here" (pointing to his cigarette pocket) were trademark gestures of Lionel's that many will never forget. Although Whiskers, his black cat, never got the big five under the eye, she will remind us of Lionel's caring and compassionate way. Friends may call on Wednesday, April 16, 2014 from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. at the R.S. Kane Funeral Home (6150 Yonge Street, at Goulding, south of Steeles). A Memorial Service will be held on Thursday, April 17, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. at R.S. Kane Chapel (6150 Yonge Street). As an expression of sympathy, donations may be made to the Hill House Hospice or Woodchippers Bowling League. Condolences www.rskane.ca
