(Born 1934, Oshawa ON; died from Dementia on Wednesday, October 7, 2020, Halifax, NS) Son of Charles Bradley (N. Ireland) and Catherine Sutton (Moscow, ON), Winston was born and raised in the tiniest home you’ve ever seen in Oshawa Ontario. Out of those humble roots, this high school educated man of persistence, ambition, and people skills climbed to the senior VP ranks of the trust and banking business, for a 32 year undefeated career. He took Sybil and the kids along to his various posts in Toronto, Saint John, Toronto again, and finally Halifax.
As a passionate sports fan, ‘he was there’ at Moscow's Luzhniki Ice Palace in Russia in 1972 for Henderson’s goal; in the Gardens for the Leafs last Cup in 67; at the Lake Placid Olympics in 1980; the Canada Cup final series in 87 in Hamilton; and the Jays first game in 76. He loved those Blue Jays. He also found time to coach hockey and softball with his boys during halcyon days in Thornhill and Halifax, coaching with a unique blend of studious organization and fiery engagement for the game and doing this while curling competitively himself for over 30 years.
As a lifelong political man, he managed campaigns for many successful politicians (Larry Uteck of note). His tireless volunteer work with Cancer, Epilepsy, disability advocacy, senior hockey, countless boards, and the PC/Conservative party was inspiring.
He was tragically predeceased 53 years ago by his six–year–old son, Randy, and lost the love of his life, Sybil, five years ago, after travelling the world and retracing their Irish heritage many times together.
Love and support surrounded him virtually and in person in his final days, from his children, Kelly Jean, Pat (Kelly Christie), Sean (Heidi); grandchildren, who he was so fond and proud of, Liam, Cassidy, Ty, Nolan, Patrick.
There will be no service.
Winston and Sybil’s remains will travel to Toronto in an upcoming summer to join Randy. Then the family will head to a Jays game and a far too late, after hours celebratory feast at Shopsy’s. Like Dad used to do with us.
Thank you to Shannex and the Sullivan's Lane staff for their compassionate care, especially during the pandemic, when the family could not be there.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Mattatall – Varner Funeral Home, 55 Young Street, Truro. Online salutations and memories are welcomed by viewing Winse’s obituary on–line and selecting “Send A Condolence” at: www.mattatallvarnerfh.com.

It is with profound sadness that the family of Mark Joseph McCaustlin announces his passing after a courageous battle with cancer, on Thursday, October 1, 2020, at the age of 66 years.
A native of Saint John, New Brunswick, and a fiercely proud resident of London, Ontario for over 20 years, Mark loved three things in life: his family, his beloved Montreal Canadiens, and an ice cold Labatt Blue. It was the simple things in life he cherished the most, though he lived anything but a simple life.
As a Veteran of the Canadian Armed Forces for more than 20 years Mark travelled all over the World, from Europe to Asia to Central America, and spent several years living in Germany before moving back to Canada and retiring from active duty in 1997. He then spent many years helping his community in London by working at Dearness Nursing Home, carefully and dutifully preparing food for the residents he served.
Mark will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 32 years, Laura, and by his daughters Lisa McCaustlin, Sarah (Andrew) Boulter, and Jena McCaustlin (Mike Di Cresce). Mark will also be fondly remembered by his four grandchildren, Noah, Logan, Aidan, and Evan and by his siblings Dale McCaustlin, Patsy Bannon, Janice McCaustlin, Blake McCaustlin, David McCaustlin, Marilyn Surrette, and Jacklyn McDowell.
Mark was predeceased by his sisters Brenda Winchester and Lorie McCaustlin.
Memorial donations in memory of Mark can be made to the Canadian Legacy Project (canadianlegacy.org), an organization that provides long–term support to our Veterans and their families, or any charity of your choice.
