The Internment for WO Ian Culbertson will take place at the Beechwood National Military Cemetery, in Ottawa on Thurs. 06 Nov. 08. at 1100hrs.
Sad final parade for this venerable ole soldier, rightly taking his place amongst those many distinguished ranks and files

(Mods, not sure if you want to move this to the ongoing chain in the more common thread for all serving members instead of this individual one, your call)

I just saw that WO Culbertson passed away on the 8th of October, 2008.  I worked with and got to know Ian around 1998 until 2000, in Gagetown where he, at that time, was mostly working as a Crse WO for leaderhip courses.  He was a respected man, both for his knowledge and his way of saying it like it was.  He was a walking book of knowledge and experience.  I had bumped into him numerous times on trips to Gagetown between 2001-2006, and it was always good to catch up and hear some more of his stories and jokes.  The last I heard, he was working as a Harassment Advisor or something of that nature (or so I had heard) which, for anyone that knew him, was something that got a chuckle or two.

RIP Ian.

- Ian Culbertson and I were course candidates on Basic Parachute Course serial 7402 at the Canadian Airborne Center, CFB Edmonton, Alberta, Jan - Feb 1974.

CWO Bobby Girourad.

We were course mates on the Small Arms Course in 87.  I saw his memorial in KAF. All the troops I know from 2 VP who were with him in Afghanistan admired and respected him.

That in itself says what kind of man he was.

RIP Bob

CWO Girourad was the DSM and then CCSOR here at Meaford. He was excellent, backing the staff and fighting for what was right. And not being afraid to call a spade a spade.

Regardless of the fact that he wasn't currently a serving member of the CF, I still felt this was the most suited place for this.

"The long time Fire Chief in Windsor NS passed away this morning.
Fred Fox was 56.
Fox first joined the Windsor Fire Department when he was 18 years old and dedicated 38 years to the fire service including nearly 20 years as Chief.
He'd been on sick leave from the department for the past year. "

I know there's a number of members here who have lived in the Valley area, and I know all the fire departments around here work closely with one another, so I thought I'd post this.

The fire department had planned on presenting Chief Fox with a golden axe during their annual banquet on November 7th. But during the last few weeks it was not expected that he would still be here, due to his condition failing.
Just days before the banquet and his passing, the fire dept formed up in full dress uniform, closed down the street he lived on, and marched to his house where he was presented the axe.
After being presented the axe, he himself sounded a bell three times; a traditional way of announcing that a firefighter has fallen.

With much sadness I pass along that Maj Sharon Broadbent died today, losing her battle with cancer. She was the A3 Aerospace Coordinator at 1 Cdn Air Div in Winnipeg.

Obit and funeral details as they become available.

RIP Ma'am. You will be missed.
