Gordon Leroy Graves
Birth:  February 20, 1949
Death:  October 24, 2018

In the early hours of Wednesday October 24, 2018 Gordon passed away with his wife and best friend Sharon at his side, and entered into Eternal Life as God’s word promises. Gord loved the Lord and served Him throughout his life.

Gord had many setbacks in his life but never lost his courage to keep on going. He enjoyed volunteering for the Salvation Army, the Thunder Hockey Team, Tillsonburg Fair Board, and church related activities.
Gord’s biggest love in life was fishing. He made friends as they gathered at Lake Lisgar for their hours of fishing. Gord was always thankful for the help he received when his hands wouldn’t work. Gord used his electric wheelchair to carry his rods, nets, and tackle box; it was quite a sight!
Gord loved being outside and began bird watching when he could not do other things. He especially loved spending time with Rebecca from our apartment building; she adopted both Gord and Sharon as her grandparents.

Gord is the dear Father of Adam (Becky) of Ingersoll, and Megan (Stephen) of London.
Gordon is survived by granddaughters Cierra, Jadelynn, and Peyton of Ingersoll.
Lovingly remembered by his stepsons David and Robin and their families.
Brother of Fred (Sandra) of Cambridge, and Uncle to their sons Scott (Tarralee), Michael, Kevin (Sherri), and their families.
Predeceased by his parents Roy Graves (2013) and Freda (Gaskin) Graves (2017). Hannah welcomes her Papa to Heaven where they will spend eternity.

Memorial donations in Gord’s memory to the First Baptist Church Building Fund, the Goshen Church, or Camp Trillium are appreciated and may be made directly or through Wareing Cremation Services, 346 Simcoe Street, Tillsonburg, Ontario N4G 2J8 (519-409-5575).

It is with great sadness that the family of Ted Gould announces his passing. Ted died peacefully at the Tillsonburg Memorial Hospital on Thursday October 18, 2018, at the age of 85. He spent his final day surrounded by his favourite music with with his family and dog, Howie, by his side.

The family returned to London, Ontario in 1934 where Ted enjoyed many happy times on Lorne Avenue and Wellington Street. Later, summers meant great times at Egerton Beach. After attending Central High School, he attended UWO and Wayne State University, attaining a Master’s Degree in Guidance and Counseling. Ted spent over 30 years teaching in London, in several elementary schools. Upon retirement, he enjoyed raising his young family, and seeing many friends while golfing, curling, playing bridge, and selling real estate.
Although Ted struggled with Parkinson’s, he really enjoyed life at the Royal Coachman Resort in Nokomis, Florida until 2017.
Ted joined the Masonic Lodge, Union No. 380 in London, and later the Dereham Lodge No. 624 in Mt. Elgin. He was the group committee chair for the 1st Salford Scouts for several years.

Special thanks to the staff at Ingersoll and Tillsonburg Hospital, especially Physiotherapists Stella and Cathy, and devoted nurse and friend, Greg.

Charles Frederick Shelton
Birth:  February 15, 1933
Death:  September 24, 2018

Passing peacefully in his sleep on September 24th 2018, at 85 years young, Charlie Shelton of Foldens Corners, avid fisherman and outdoorsman, woodworker, pilot and farmer who was most comfortable on a combine, is now sharing a glass of whiskey and stories with all his family and friends who have journeyed on before him.

Dad is reunited with his wife of over 55 years and favourite dance partner, Edith, whom he met on a blind date. His spirit is carried on by his 5 ‘slightly above average’ children, and his greatest joy, his 10 amazing grandchildren whom he truly adored. They brought light and laughter to his world as he had a ringside seat to their musical and sporting events - a very proud grandfather.

Charlie was a quiet man - like a toasted marshmallow. Crusty on the outside, yet a big sensitive mushy guy on the inside. Famously opinionated, he enjoyed debating and educating others on his views. He was the unofficial spokesperson for ‘telling it like it is’ and giving advice whether you wanted to hear it or not. Charlie’s advice would be… don’t smoke, plant a tree, learn to fish, whiskey and maple syrup cure all ails and everyone should appreciate farmers. He was also a romantic at heart, buying Edith a wonderfully unexpected, yet practical present of a manure spreader for their wedding anniversary.

Born in 1933 to Fred and Beth Shelton he was raised near Foldens Corners with his older sister Mary and younger brother Roger. Charlie began the Shelwood Farms tradition of making maple syrup in high school and through the years hosted fundraising pancake festivals at the ‘sugar shanty’. The tradition of making this magic elixir syrup continues to this day.

He loved music, especially Elvis, and sang in the Foldens Quartet and was a member of the Ingersoll’s Belcanto Singers. He prayed one of his children would be able to ‘carry a tune in a bushel basket’ and join him in music, yet that was not to be. He continued singing every Sunday at the nursing home until late last year.

Charlie accomplished much in his long life. He said he wasn’t a one job person and liked variety. After graduating from IDCI he helped on the family farm, planting tomatoes and won the 1955 Campbell’s Soup award for a bumper crop, started a logging business after purchasing one of the first Oregon chainsaws invented. Additionally he travelled to Saskatchewan to work wheat harvest and helped construct the Canada Cement plant.

In 1957 he was selected to train as a pilot at Centralia Air Force base on Chipmunk aircraft and upon completion, he reported to the airbase in Moose Jaw Saskatchewan. After only 7 hours of instruction Charlie was the first student of his class to solo on Harvards. During training, he did barrel rolls over the farms where he had worked in the wheat harvest years before. After graduation he was sent to RCAF Station MacDonald airbase located just north of Portage la Prairie and began flying T-33 jets. His flight instructor said Charlie was the best instrument student he ever had.

Eventually Charlie made the decision to leave airforce training and return home to the farm. He loved farming yet maintained the adventure of flight by obtaining his commercial flying permit and started crop spraying for Hicks and Lawrence throughout SW Ontario. It was an exciting job, yet after a few close calls with unmapped hydro lines and fuel switches he eventually hung up his wings.

Charlie’s farming practices were influenced by his great uncle Dr. R.A. Brink (Professor of Genetics, University of Wisconsin) and on his invitation, Charlie and 7 other Oxford County farmers visited Wisconsin to learn about conservation farming. This delegation started implementing soil conservation cultivation techniques in Oxford County in the 1970’s well before they were common practice.

In 1982 he was awarded the very first Landsaver Award by the Men of Trees and Oxford County Council and as a result was asked to speak about his experiences and achievements. Charlie detested public speaking, yet was in his element if standing in a cornfield in front of tour bus load of farmers.

Charlie served as director of OMAF Soil & Crop Association, Land Stewardship Committee, Oxford County Wheat Board, West Oxford Township Council, SE Hope Insurance Director and coached minor hockey. He was one of the owners that built the Ingersoll Elevators. In 2016 Charlie and Edith created the J.Roger Shelton Memorial Award at IDCI to honour his brother’s accomplishments despite the challenges of muscular dystrophy.

Charlie loved to travel and fish and boasted he had been on over 250 fishing trips, some of which were to Baffin Island, Great Bear Lake, NWT, Quebec and numerous fishing holes in Northern Ontario …., also travelling to many places including Scotland, Australia, Singapore, Hawaii, Las Vegas and California often to see his brother. Besides the farm, his happy place was fishing in northern Ontario, especially the cottage on Lake Animanippising where THE BEST fishing can be found…. (or at least the best fishing stories) with his buddies.

Although Charlie was never one for religiosity, he had a strong belief in the spirit of community with neighbours, friends and family, and was supportive and generous. For those that remember Charlie, honour him by celebrating in your own way.

He will be sadly missed by his kids, Roger, Kim (Brent Lindsay), Warren (Cathy), Eddie (Lucinda), Chris (Marci) and grandchildren Jesse, Jack, Colin, Jared, Ella, Chloe, Josh, Maxx, Hayden and Caitlyn. Dear brother-in-law of Elizabeth Joiner, Maria Joiner and Willard Long. Predeceased by his sister Mary Long, brother J. Roger Shelton and sister-in-law Joan, and brother-in-laws George and John Joiner and his beloved wife Edith (Nov 2017). Charlie will also be dearly missed by many cousins, nieces, nephews, extended family, fishing buddies and wonderful friends.

With heavy hearts we say goodbye Dad and we wish you peace.

Please join the family to share stories at the Celebration of Life for Charlie from 1 to 4 pm on Sunday, September 30th 2018 at the Elm Hurst Inn, 415 Harris Street, Ingersoll, Ontario.

If desired, donations to Ontario Heart and Stroke or Muscular Dystrophy of Canada are gratefully acknowledged and can be arranged through Wareing Cremation Services, 346 Simcoe Street, Tillsonburg, Ontario N4G 2J8 (519-409-5575)

Sending love to you all from the U. S. Thinking of you! Cousin Bev in Indiana.

Carolyn Pho

Ann, Guy, Paul, and family: We are so sorry to hear about your Mom and Grandma. Susan gave me the sad news. Your Mom found happiness with Bill and it was wonderful for her. My first real memory of her was at your Grandme Vanderbutg’s house at her trousseau tea. I was 10 or 11 years old probably and was most impressed. Don’t think Susan went as she was too young. It is a nice memory. You will have many special memories of her to remember her as life carries you forward. With loving thoughts. Your cousin Carolyn from Regina

Beth Graham

I cannot come up with a single thought about Adrienne that isn't like a warm hug. Almost fifty years of memories travelling across the 401 for orchards, Longpoint, cousins, Christmas, Easter hunts, etc. Memories made fuller with the presence of two sisters who could still giggle together with their hands full of babies and food preparation. It is amazing that these thoughts feel like they were a lifetime ago AND yesterday... and you are all in them. I hope the stories that will surround you this week will be carried in your hearts to bring you comfort and joy.

Bev Wybrow

Adrienne was a loving and special person. She is part of so many of my family memories, that I treasure. She will be deeply missed. Hugs and condolences to all her family. Bev Wybrow
