CASTLEVERNON JOHN CASTLE. June 12, 1933-February 14, 2002. A beautiful mural, one that is the life of Vern Castle, was completed early Thursday morning. It was full of colours and textures, lively and fun, creative and smart. Emigrating to Canada in 1957 after completing studies at Camberwell College of Art in London, England; Vern worked in the Graphic Arts industry in Regina, Saskatchewan. His community involvement included organizations like the Regina Exhibition Association, Canadian Red Cross, and Saskatchewan Roughriders. He was a founding member of Buffalo Days and a Director of the Roughriders. After a brief re-visit to England in 1972, Vern returned to the Regina LeaderPost as Creative Art Director. A move to Vernon, BC in 1980 allowed time for drawing, painting and teaching. He had extensive community involvement, especially with the Lions Service Club. A final move to Parksville, BC in 1993, offered Vern time to meet new friends, continue teaching his craft, and p!
roduce more of his art. Many enjoyed his creativity, wit and affable character. His prolific work includes illustrations for children's books and newspapers; commemorative art pieces; corporate logos; murals in Vernon and in England; and cartoons for hundreds of cards and posters. He was predeceased by his parents, Gladstone and Beatrice and sister Josephine. Left to celebrate his life, his wife of 48 years, Beryl; sons Martin (Monica) and Wayne; grandchildren Claire and Hannah; siblings Howard (Bernice) and Victoria (John); sister-in-law Phyllis and family in England.

MIDDLETON _ Harvey "Elden". Peacefully on Friday, February 15th at Peace Arch Hospital, White Rock, British Columbia, aged 84. Predeceased by his wife, Marjorie in 1999 and brothers Floyd and Wilfred. Survived by brothers Glen and Wilbur, and sisters Marlene and Trudy, sons Robert Parmenter, Glen and Don Middleton. Fondly remembered by daughter-in-law Marilyn and grandchildren. Grandpa "Boo Boo" is remembered for his loving spirit, great sense of humour and customized art work. After leaving the family farm in Lang, Saskatchewan in the early 40's, and running several Regina area restaurants, Harvey rode the rails out to the West Coast. While he left the Prairies, the Prairies never left him. Following the war, a brief career in real estate led to the purchase of several lots in Burnaby and the construction of the Flame Supper Club in 1947. With partner, the late Sid Bowles, Harvey was one of the main instigators of the B.C. Cabaret Operators' Association, formed in the late !
40's to campaign publicly for the right to sell liquor by the drink. Up to that point, due to prohibition, club owners could only sell ice and soft drinks. After selling the Flame in 1971, Harvey and Marjorie together purchased a number of rental properties which they renovated and managed up until Marjorie's passing in 1999. Memorial service at the family's White Rock family home (13841 Malabar Ave.) to be held at 1:00 p.m. on March 2nd, 2002. Special thanks is extended by the family to the staff of Peace Arch Hospital and Doctor Angus MacDonald.

BERRY _ Dr. John Coulter (Jack) ended a remarkable 97 year journey February 16, 2002. Born in Langley, B.C. February 5, 1905 to a pioneer dairy farm family, Jack leaves an enormous legacy of service along with enduring memories of his charm, his sense of humour and his quiet resolve. Jack's first love was farming, to which he returned after receiving his BSA from UBC in 1927. When health limited his farming activities, he returned to university, receiving his MSA (UBC) in 1937 and his PhD (Iowa State) in 1939. He immediately joined the faculty at UBC, where he enjoyed an exemplary career, retiring in 1970. An expert in animal (especially dairy) genetics, Jack was a distinguished researcher, an accomplished teacher and a committed practitioner of extension in agriculture. He was instrumental in the development and adoption of the Breed Class Average system for evaluating dairy cattle, and an effective proponent of advances in technology such as artificial insemination. Jack's!
international reputation resulted in assignments at universities and advising governments in India, Pakistan, Barbados and Zambia. He also served his broader communities, for example the UBC Senate, a term as President of the UBC Faculty Association and 30 years on the PNE board, where as President in 1960-61 he championed construction of the Agridome. He served on a host of local, provincial, national and international farm and agriculture-related organizations, often as President or Chairman. Jack's many honours and awards include Professor Emeritus at UBC, Fellow, Agricultural Institute of Canada and member of the Canadian Agricultural Hall of Fame. A man of strong integrity, Jack was modest about his achievements and unfailingly quiet, generous and thoughtful in his approach to others. Jack was predeceased by brothers Ed, Bill and Harry and sisters Edith and Anne. He is survived by his wife of 61 years, Helen; his son Chuck (Darlene); grandchildren Christopher and Karle!
e; brother Tom (Fran) Berry of Courtenay, B.C. and a large extended family who will fondly remember their Uncle Jack. No service. Arrangements Columbia-Bowell.

MACDONALD _ M. Gail. May 2, 1952 - February 23, 1992 Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.
