REYNOLDS, Mervin Gordon
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved father and grandfather, Mervin Gordon Reynolds, on November 11, 2009. The son of Stan and Myrtle Reynolds, Merv was born June 18, 1944, in North Vancouver. He was a loving brother to Donald, John, Wayne, Keith and Gail. After graduating at North Vancouver Senior Secondary, Merv pursued a career in education and received a Bachelors degree from Simon Fraser University. Merv enjoyed a full career, up until his retirement, as a teacher, vice principal, and for the majority of his career, a principal. Merv had many passions in life, however, his greatest passion were his pigeons. As a young boy, his father introduced him to pigeon racing and up until his passing, he belonged to numerous pigeon clubs. He enjoyed not only the birds, but the camaraderie between his pigeon buddies. He couldn't contain his excitement when the birds were released. Merv would say his greatest accomplishment is his family. His greatest love was his late wife Kristine Yvonne Reynolds, who passed away suddenly in 1991. Merv and Kristine shared three beautiful children; Sean, Krista and Tara, and three most precious grandchildren; Lashawnda, Krissy and Kensington. Merv is survived by his son; Sean (Jennifer), daughters; Krista (Joshua), and Tara (Todd), grandchildren; Lashawnda, Krissy, Kensington, Cody and Taylor, and mother-in-law; Bonnie. Dad, we will always remember your humor, laughter, smile, devotion and most of all, your love. A service will be held at Ellison Elementary School in Kelowna, British Columbia, on Saturday, November 21, 2009, at 11am in the gymnasium. In lieu of flowers, please send a donation to Family Literacy: www2.literacy.bc.ca/family.htm .

WINGFIELD, Michael Howard 1944 - 2010 With sadness we say goodbye to our good friend and husband Mike Wingfield. Mike left us on June 24, 2010 and will be missed by his loving wife Ellen and the many other friends he made while living in the Clinton area. Mike was raised in North Vancouver, was a fireman for a number of years before taking up a successful career in sales. He was a sailor, a biker, a fighter, a handyman and an extraordinary raconteur. He attacked every new project with enthusiasm and excitement and crammed as much living into his life as possible. No formal service by request. Do not stand at my grave and weep; I am not there. I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glint on snow. I am the sun on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awake in the morning hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circling flight. I am the soft starlight at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there. I did not die.
