3932 GOODWIN, Donald Class of 1957)

On October 19, 2014 at home at the age of 80. Beloved husband of Sophyann (nee Smith). Loving father of Susann Buhr (Scott) and Michael (Susie). Proud grandfather of Stephen Buhr and dear brother of Peter (Lee). Don Goodwin was a passionate and authentic communicator.

He never judged people and always enjoyed talking with whomever crossed his wide path. Don was a graduate of Eastview and the Royal Military College of Canada and later attended McGill and Carleton Universities. He trained as a mechanical engineer and although he once considered the Royal Canadian Navy to be his his home he left the military in the mid-’60s for Sun Oil Company (Sunoco). Corporate life was just not his “thing” and in 1967 he joined Industry, Trade and Commerce in Ottawa.

In the twenty-five years that followed Don held numerous key policy and program positions in the federal government including in Environment, the Privy Council, Office of the Comptroller General, and Indian and Northern Affairs where, in 1992, he retired as Assistant Deputy Minister (Land, Revenues, and Trusts). Don was a superb downhill skier, voracious chef and gardener, artist and loving grandfather. Friends are invited to attend a Memorial Gathering to be held in the Hall of Colours of the Beechwood National Memorial Centre, 280 Beechwood Ave. (east of Vanier Parkway) on Tuesday October 28, after 2 p.m. followed by a Graveside Service at 3:15 p.m. Source

Lynda Baynton wife of 8613 Bill Baynton (Class of 1971) & Robert Smart (brother of Lynda)

Lynda Mary Ann (nee SMART) BAYNTON (August 16, 1949 – October 18, 2014)

Robert Charles SMART (July 23, 1953 – October 18, 2014).

Fatal motor vehicle accident on Hwy 401 (Long Sault), just west of Moulinette Road in South Stormont, at 2:10 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 18.

Bob was pronounced dead at the scene. Lynda was airlifted from Cornwall Community Hospital to the Ottawa Hospital, Civic Campus, where she succumbed to her injuries at 5:00 p.m.

They were en route from Toronto to Montreal to celebrate the birthday of their granddaughter and niece, Chloé.

With their mother, Ethel, they were a close family, following the death in 1971 of father, Wes. They became closer still, following the death of Ethel last year.

Lynda leaves husband, Bill; children, Lindsay (Jérôme), Kristy, Ashley (Eric), and Scott; and grandchildren, Logan, Chloé and Madeleine. Rob never married or had children.

Lynda was a devoted and loving wife, mother, grandmother and teacher, preparing for the next chapter in life to dote on her grandchildren and future great-grandchildren. Bob was an unusually attentive, involved and loving uncle and great-uncle, illustrated by the many trips he – alone, or with Lynda – would make to visit family and participate in celebrations, such as this last trip together. Their simultaneous loss is enormous and incalculable.

The family would like to especially recognize their Arrowsmith and Smart relatives.

Lynda and Bob were well liked and respected by their colleagues at Fieldcrest Elementary in Bradford and State Farm in Aurora.

The family is grateful for the superb level of care at scene of accident through care of family by the O.P.P. and medical personnel. Source

Flowers to any Senior Home or donations in support of diabetes or heart charities welcome. A gathering to celebrate their lives and mourn their loss will take place at Springdale Christian Reformed Church, 1466 5th Side Road, Bradford West Gwillumbury, Saturday, November 1st. Visitation at 11 a.m. Service to take place at 1 p.m.
