    ACCIDENTAL DEATH OF LCOL PIERRE LABELLE

    Ladies, Gentlemen,

    It is with great sorrow that I inform you of the death of Lcol Pierre Labelle.

    Yesterday, around 19h15, Pierre went on a bicycle ride from the Regional Cadet School of Music Eastern, where he was the Commanding Officer, and he was unexpectedly swiped by a car. He was killed instantly.

    Our thoughts and support go to Renée, his spouse, as well as to his daughter Stéphanie and his son Alexandre, and to all the School of Music Staff and cadets that came in contact with him until recently.

    We lose a colleague, a friend, and a passionate advocate of the Cadet Program in RCSU Eastern.

    RIP, from what I had heard Shane was an outstanding cadet, who always put his best effort forth to any activity he did.

    When you consider that he was on here four days ago asking about his training bonus, and now, well...

    Reading that thread now is downright eerie.

    This is a bit late but I recall seeing the band perform from that camp at the MEGA in St Jean. They were a talented bunch and hearing of his passing a few days later was just surreal.

    I can't even believe this.
    I got a notification that my flight sergeant from this summer posted in the Scorpion facebook group, and I thought it was just a typical 'miss you guys' post. I was not ready to see that he posted the link to his memorial page.
    although I didn't get to know him as well as I would've liked, we always worked together in class for the weeks he was at camp with me.
    he knew so much, and was always looking for something new to learn.

    CadetWorld sadly mourns the loss of a Cadet and a member of our CW community. Flight Sergeant Shane de Boer's last activity here was 27 Aug 2011, 3 years to the day from when he first joined CW.

    A donation on behalf of CW has been made to FSgt de Boer's squadron, and we express our deepest sympathies to his family and friends, and to the Cadets and Staff at 296 City of Cambridge Royal Canadian Air Cadets Squadron as they cope with the loss of one of their own.

    CW Members who wish to do so may write their thoughts on FSgt de Boer's CW Wall:

    http://www.cadet-world.com/cwforums/...9607-deBoerBOT

    In keeping with CW custom, his user title has been edited to express our wish that he Rest In Peace.

    Viewings are scheduled 1400-1600 and 1900-2100 at Corbett Funeral Home in Cambridge, Ontario. Funeral is 1100 on 1 Sep 11 (no location was specified so I suspect also at the funeral home, but I would suggest calling the funeral to confirm, for anyone who plans to attend).

    RIP, Shane, may you now be at peace.

    I knew him not for his presnece but for his friendship!

    I regret to inform, that on the 19th of sept 2011, A fellow cadet and good friend of mine, Brenden James Minnie form BC, passed away in an unfortunate seires of events. He was a great leader, outgoing person, and an awe inspiring rolemodel. We spent 6 weeks together on SIC in Greenwood. He was always someone you could talk to if you had a problem, and was always willing to help. " In the light of our lord, he is a guide, always watching, and a friend, his love difying the boundries of death itself." (Chris Dennis) He will be missed greatly! SIC 2K9 FOREVER!


    I knew Brenedon from SIC and i have never met a more outgoing and loving individual! I miss him soo much! Myself and a few other fellow SIC's were really the only ones who kept in close contact with him after the course, save, his freinds and family! its a real shame he had to leave us so soon. He had his entire life ahaed of him! He was a devoted individual and a great pal! Why do the good ones always always the first to go? Please come back man!

    Long Time Air Cadet Supporter and WW2 POW Passes Away

    CAMPBELL, Donald George, 94, Halifax, passed away peacefully on October 15, 20111 at the QE11 Health Sciences Centre.
    He was the youngest son of the late George Douglas (Dugald) and Esther (Black) Campbell. He enjoyed an ideal childhood in Weymouth North. Together with his neighbourhood friends and his cousin Kenneth Taylor, he spent many happy hours swimming in the mill pond, paddling on the Sissaboo and sailing on the bay. After he finished school, he worked for a time at the Royal Bank in Weymouth until his country called and he enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force. Here, he attained his ambition of becoming a Spitfire Pilot and was sent overseas to England. In June of 1942, when returning from a raid, he was shot down over the English Channel and was taken prisoner. He remained in prison camp until the end of the war. He then came to Halifax where he worked in the investment business until his retirement. Throughout his life, he enjoyed helping people. He was a member of the Halifax Kiwanis Club and later the Halifax Golden Key, the Investment Dealers Association, Air Cadet Squadron 902, Prisoners of War Association and Saint John's Anglican Church, Halifax. He is survived by his wife, Mary Lou (Bishop); a son, Colin (Josee), a daughter, Jennifer (Terry Davis); two grandchildren, Caroline and Kenneth Davis.
    Visitation will take place at J.A.Snow Funeral Home, 339 Lacewood Drive, Halifax on Tuesday, October 18th from 2-4 and 6-8 pm with funeral service on Wednesday, October 19th at 11:30 AM from Snow's Chapel. Donations in Donald's memory to the Canadian Red Cross will be gratefully received.


    He actually helped with 292 air cadets, the squadron I joined but his family got the number wrong... no big deal. He hasn't been able to attend events in about 4 years now due to failing health, but the unit was always close to his heart. I remember him talking about flying spitfires when I was a young cadet.... I also remember the first time I learned he was a POW, he never talked about it to anyone until about 10 years ago a young first year cadet asked him about the war... he talked to him for almost 2 hours about his experiences, including his time in POW camps (including the one that was home of "the great escape")

    I remember talking to him once. I do believe I was a lvl 2 cadet and he had come to vist for a Co's Parade. Some one had told me he was a fighter pilot and I asked him hoe how he got into it. He bagan to tell me about the Spitfires and how he was shot down in enemy territory, and how his aircrew survival skills, which they taught the pilots not only survival in general but evasion tactics to escape capture, he told me he was caught but never really talked about what had happened while in detainment. He will be greatly missed and his memories will live on in our hearts! My deepest sympathies and condolences go out to his family and friends! He was obviously a very brave man, and a great role-model! R.I.P Lest we forget!
