James Forbes (Jim) Duthie

In the arms of his loving family, as the sun set april 10th, James Forbes (Jim) Duthie passed away peacefully. Beloved husband and best friend of Sheila (nee code) for 62 years. cherished father of Merydee Duthie (David Radburn), kristy Brundage (Michael) and James Duthie (Cheryl). Much loved Bapa to Mackenzie and Alannah Radburn, Harrison, carter, anna and emmett Brundage, Jared, Darian and Gracie Duthie. Will be dearly missed by his extended family in B.C, who though far away in distance were always close to his heart. A kamloops boy, Jim joined the RCMP at age 19, fulfilling a boyhood dream. Over his 35 year career, he served in Ontario, alberta, British columbia and Nova Scotia, retiring in 1986 as Assistant commissioner. Jim and Sheila retired to Big clear Lake, near arden, Ontario. Over the years, the cottage welcomed family, friends, friends of family and friends of friends. it's been the site of christenings, a wedding, grandkids' end of school parties, easter Sunday breakfasts, canada Day fireworks, Christmas gatherings, and Jim and Sheila's 50th and 60th anniversary parties. Jim drove the boat for endless waterskiing and tubing runs, planted a plethora of petunias, and always insisted on washing the dishes. Throughout his life, Jim served his community. He coached youth soccer in both Victoria and Gloucester, was an active member of Rothwell and arden united churches, and served with the "Friends of Arden" and "The Happy Gang" until his passing. He was infamous for heading off to meetings assuring Sheila he wouldn't volunteer for anything, and coming home president of the organization.Music was a huge part of Jim's life. He started his first band, "The Scholars", at 16, and played in his last "The Ardenaires" at 86. In between, he was the lead percussionist in the RCMP band for 10 years, played keyboard and accordion at the church in the Wildwood, and sang bass with the Arden Glee Club. His late afternoon keyboard improvisations were the soundtrack of our summers. Jim was Ottawa's greatest football fan. For over 60 years, he never missed a Roughriders/ Renegades/REDBLACkS game, and though his loyalty was tested, he was rewarded in his last two seasons with a thrilling Grey cup win in 2016, and a centre field seat to this year's big game in his home stadium. He was an avid gardener, a lover of butter tarts, a captivating storyteller and an unparalleled scavenger (no trip to the auction or the cottage dump ended without a 'perfectly good' find to take home). To the 5th floor oncology staff at the ottawa General Hospital, our immense gratitude for your incredible care for Jim and for our family. your compassion and professionalism made Jim's last days comfortable. Special appreciation to DJ for making our family easter dinner possible.

A celebration of Jim's life will be held at Arden united Church, Saturday, April 28 at 1pm. Reception to follow at the kennebec Community Centre. In lieu of flowers, the family would be grateful for donations to the arden united church, 1076 Railway St. arden, oN k0H 1B0 or (Jim was a great admirer of Jonathan Pitre).

Kind, humourous, generous and loving, Gord leaves behind a multitude of family, friends and colleagues. His effectiveness in everything he did as lifepartner, parent, friend, and professional stemmed from his wonderful ability to “make a friend a day”!

CALDWELL, William Brian

CALDWELL, William Brian of Horseshoe Lake, Arden, Ontario. December 22, 1950 - March 18, 2018. Died peacefully in his favourite spot, at the table by the big window looking out on the lake. Survived by his three children: Ian Caldwell (Natasha Webster), Mary Caldwell (Daniel Steinberg), David Caldwell (Julie Williams); three grandchildren: Viola, Liesl and Isabel "Ella"; two sisters: Gayle Caldwell and Kathyrn Lauzon (née Caldwell); sisterinlaw: Dakshina Clark (née Compeau). Predeceased by his wife, Esther Dawn Caldwell (née Skidmore). Son of Francis Stitt (née O’Shaughnessy) (1924-2012) and William Caldwell (1928-1989), and brother of Victoria Caldwell (1958-1991). It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to a man who, throughout his lifetime, valued nothing more dearly than his loved ones. Brian was the ultimate adventurer, despite the quietness of his life in its final years. With his beloved wife Esther, he travelled the world at a young age, sharing with her a love of learning and exploring, documenting their travels in photographs and letters. Settling into a family life in Canada with three children and many cats through the years, Brian was a source of comfort and security for many around him, as well as being a link within the family as the frequent host of August family reunions and Thanksgiving gettogethers. The last decade saw too many losses for the extended family and for Brian in particular, most especially the losses of Esther and his mother, Fran, yet one could often still glimpse the same fun-loving, warm, and teasing person he always was. He had many hobbies throughout the years, although reading and spending time at the cottage remained the most important for him. His love of his immediate and extended family was always apparent, with a special affection for his sisters and his children and grandchildren. Photos of Ian, Mary, David, and the grandchildren Viola, Liesl, and Ella surrounded his favored seat in the cottage, and even in moments when his strength was lessened by his struggle with COPD, he always maintained his love and affection for others, often demonstrated in his own unique ways. He will be remembered fondly by family and friends, and sorely missed. We hope that he is reunited with Esther now, and enjoying peace and freedom from pain in his afterlife. Condolences and memories of Brian can be sent to his family via his daughter Mary at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Lakefield Animal Welfare Society, the Gananoque & District Humane Society, or a charity of your choice.
