We received notices of two deaths over the past few days:

4556 Ron James passed away on Thursday, 17 Dec at the Kingston General Hospital.   The family is planning a service at St. George’s Church (Kingston) in January.  More details when available.


5722 JEFFERS, William Cameron ‘Bill’  –  Passed away peacefully, surrounded by the love of his family on December 18th, 2015 at the age of 75.

See obituary at http://www.canadianobituaries.com/durham/11894-william-jeffers-december-18-2016

The obit makes mention:  “Bill retired in 1993 and then accepted a position as Head of Mathematics for Durham Region Separate School Board. He was proud that six of his students graduated from RMC.”

9884 Dr. Bob Banks had this to say about 5722 Bill Jeffers:

“I was the first one of the six. I was a 15 year old in grade 10 in Whitby in 1966 when he showed up on day 1 of his high school teaching career, just out of the Navy.  As well as math class, I played basketball against him (and the other teachers) in high school during Friday scrimmages after school.  He had a great influence on me, clearly.  Bill and I maintained contact over the years and I met a couple of ex-cadets who were similarly influenced by him, but I do not know their names.”


Sponsorship Update:

As this will likely be our final Issue for 2015 we wish to take the opportunity to thank all those who have helped us out with sponsorship support.

Although we are still short of our goal we certainly appreciate the support that we have received to date.

Anyone wishing to still sponsor, we will be pleased to hear from you.


Mise à jour – commandites :

Puisqu’il s’agit sans doute de notre dernière édition de 2015, nous désirons saisir l’occasion de remercier tous ceux qui nous ont aidés par leur commandite.

Bien que nous n’ayons pas atteint notre objectif, nous apprécions certainement le soutien que nous avons reçu jusqu’à maintenant.

Si jamais vous désiriez nous commanditer, il nous fera plaisir d’avoir de vos nouvelles.
