It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Richard Murray Vaughan. Born in Saint John, NB on March 2, 1965, Richard was the son of the late Murray and Dorothy Vaughan (Loughery).
He is survived by his older brother Paul (Lorie) of Nauwigewauk; his niece Tricia Shannon (Chris) of Kingston; nephew Ryan Vaughan of Saint John; and nephew Tyler Vaughan of Moncton.
Richard was raised in Quispamsis and, during his early years, spent his summers at the family home in St. Martins. After graduating from KVHS in 1983 in he attended UNB Saint John where he earned his bachelor's degree in English. After a short period of time working odd jobs in Montreal, he returned to his home province where he obtained his master's in English from UNB Fredericton.
Richard began his professional life as an artist shortly after moving to Toronto in 1991 with the help of the Bubbies in Bad Times theatre where he first found his voice as a playwright. From those humble beginnings until just days before his passing, Richard, better known as RM Vaughan, was a prolific contributor to Canadian Arts and Culture as a novelist, poet, video-artist and was a well-known culture critic for the Global and Mail and the National Post. Most recently Richard's work brought him back to New Brunswick as Writer in Residence for UNB Fredericton where he was helping to inspire the next generation of Canadian writers.
For those closest to Richard, he will be remembered for the hand-written letter and post cards, the quirky little trinkets that would arrive in the mail, and wonderful crafts he loved to make for all occasions, but especially for Halloween.
Adapted from a poem by RM Vaughan…
What Richard Left Behind
you cannot measure or weigh
or pick up with your hands.
It is invisible, like a warm wind on your face
or a smile behind a scarf _
but it is just as welcome, just as sincere
just as loving
Arrangements are under the care and direction of Brenan’s Funeral Home, 111 Paradise Row, Saint John, NB (634-7424). In keeping with Richard's wishes, a private family ceremony will take place. A celebration of life for Richard will be held later. Details to be announced.
For those who wish, donations can be made to the "RM Vaughan Memorial Fund" at UNB Fredericton or to the New Brunswick Mental Health Association. Online condolences may be placed at www.BrenansFH.com

It is with sorrow and many wonderful memories that we announce the passing of Dr. Paul Seely Fanjoy on Tuesday, October 27, 2020, at the dedicated care of Bobby's Hospice.

Paul graduated from Saint John Vocational School, Nova Scotia Agricultural College, and the Ontario Veterinary College/University of Toronto. He worked in Chicago and Halifax and then opened up his own practice, the Fundy Animal Hospital in Saint John in 1972. He enjoyed his practice spanning 35 years during the beginning of medical advancements in the care of companion animals.
Paul loved Saint John, taking all friends and visiting relatives on many driving tours. He was brought up in the North End and summers in his youth were spent in Epworth Park. He loved music and played in five bands over his earlier years, one being the Military Band in the King’s Square bandstand. Paul had his own dance band at University and played “The Last Post” at many ceremonies. He was a member of St. Paul’s Anglican Church in Rothesay.
His pastimes found him golfing and sailing in his boat that he had moored in front of his lovely home on the Kennebecasis River. He loved skiing with his friends and family with many a winter spent in Sugarloaf. Paul had a passion for gardening and being a chef, entertaining friends and family with his wonderful meals and wine. He and Jill took many vacations, and loved to travel throughout Canada, the US, and overseas after retirement.

25 Oct 2020
Sue Worrell (nee Tomlinson) sadly announces the passing of her beloved husband and soulmate of 27 years, Gary L. Worrell, at the Coronary Care unit of the Saint John Regional Hospital on October 25th. Gary had suffered a serious heart incident some 21 years ago and had been living a cautious but otherwise fulfilling life since that time. He began experiencing more challenging complications this past year however and despite heroic efforts by both he and Sue as well as the local medical community, he succumbed to those lingering complications at the far too early age of 67.
Besides Sue (aka Gary's Angel, Sylvia or Susie Q), Gary will be missed by step-son Todd Clayton (Terri Ann), their children Max and Gwen, his sisters Jean, Janice and brother Dale, Susie's siblings Judy (Mike), Heather (Neil), Phil (Maria) and their families, and the numerous students he taught over the years.
He is predeceased by brother Wayne and an infant sister, his parents Francis and Lloyd, mother in law Adelaide, brother-in-law Paul, sister-in-law Annie and stepson Mark Clayton.
Following graduation from McAdam High School (1971), Gary embarked on further education beginning with UNB, B.P.E., 1975, Penn State U., M.Sc., 1977 and Florida State U., PHD, 1987. His entire professional career was spent at UNBSJ as a Lecturer and coach of several varsity sports teams. His 41 years of dedicated service was rewarded in 2012 when he was awarded the coveted President’s Medal for distinguished service to UNBSJ.
Gary (aka Whipper) Worrell was also a nationally certified soccer referee, officiating countless matches throughout the Maritimes and Canada for over 25 years. His intimate knowledge of the rulebook made him a resource for other soccer leagues and institutions and he was called upon for “expert advice or rulings” on occasion.
All who knew Gary were aware of the tremendous pride he felt and shared regarding the countless students who benefited from his stern (no tardiness, excuses, mis-spellings or grammatical sins thank you) but equally caring and compassionate guidance. Respect was an important word for Professor Worrell.
Gary had no shortage of interests and activities. He loved family time as well as leisure time spent at summer homes on Oromocto Lake and later Grand Lake. He loved automobiles, boats, fishing, gardening, watching movies as well as major sports like hockey and baseball (Go Leafs and Yanks), and cooking (he was known for his deadly hors d’oeuvres) and heaping home-fashioned mini pizzas. He enjoyed ribbing (and being ribbed) by his buds. Spirited conversation involving countless subjects including politics entertained him and he was always mindful of the opinions of others. He was a great listener and always thought before he spoke.
Despite his limited physical capabilities, Gary avoided any and all forms of self-pity. He’d been coached well at home, reflected in his strong values. When queried about his general health, the response was typically brief, ending with words like “there are many with far greater issues than me”. The conversation would soon change to more cheerful topics.
A sincere thank you is extended to the late Dr. James Parrott, Dr. David Bewick, Dr. Satish Toal and their support teams as well as staff at the Saint John Regional Hospital and all Paramedics.
Donations can be made to the SJ Regional Hospital Foundation, “The Give”, The NB Heart Center, Romero House, Boys and Girls Club or local SPCA.
Due to COVID-19 regulations, no visitation will take place, a small graveside service and invite only reception limited to immediate family and friends will take place on October 31 at 1:00 pm at Fairhaven Funeral Home, Moncton. A celebration of life for Gary will be held at a later date once COVID restrictions are lifted.
