Forever Loved, Never Forgotten .. Larry Clarke Couperthwaite November 4, 1948 - January 31, 2024 Larry Clarke Couperthwaite cracked his last cheerful and well-timed joke on January 31, 2024, at the age of 75. Later that day, he died suddenly related to unexpected heart complications while awaiting aortic valve replacement surgery at Toronto General Hospital. Larry is survived by his spouse of many years, Marian; his daughters Lisa and Kristi and their respective spouses; his grandsons, Maddox, Owen, and Liam; Marian’s children and grandchildren; his brother Bill and family; and many other close family and friends who loved him dearly. Larry made friends wherever he went, and nothing was more important to him than being there for his family as much as he could. He was well-known for his fun and kind-hearted nature, hilarious pranks, astute business mind, and supportive coaching and mentoring. He loved long drives, playing with his dogs, spending time in the warm Florida sun, and being silly with his grandsons who he adored. Larry is already profoundly missed. May his memory be a blessing to all who knew him. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to a special charity called Nova’s Ark where his beloved grandson, Owen, has enjoyed summer camp for many years: On-line condolences at Dixon Garland Funeral Home has been entrusted with arrangements for Larry’s Celebration of Life.

With great sadness and heavy hearts, we announce the passing of our beloved father and grandfather Vincenzo Mastromarco on Friday, March 1st at the age of 93. He will be dearly missed by his daughter, Mina, his son, Peter (Laura) and his cherished grandson, Michael Vincent.Vincenzo was born on August 19, 1930 to Pietro Mastromarco and Giacomina Mangialardi in Modugno, Bari, Italy. He was the middle child of five children: predeceased by his brothers Vito, Saverio and Angelo and his sister Maria who still resides in Modugno.In March of 1960, he crossed the Atlantic on the M.S. Vulcania to build a new life in Canada. Arriving with only a suitcase and a pocket full of seeds, he worked at various jobs from picking tobacco, house painting, working at the King Edward Hotel, Pickering Farms and finally settling to work as a produce clerk for Loblaws for 25 years.On February 23, 1963 he was married by proxy to our dear departed mother, Felicetta (nee. Correiro) who joined him a few months later in Canada.Vincenzo was an honest man who enjoyed tending to his vegetable garden which before the onslaught of squirrels and raccoons yielded heirloom tomatoes, cucumbers, string beans, Swiss chard, zucchini and a glorious peach tree. As most Italian immigrants of his generation, Vincenzo worked hard all of his life to make a better life for himself and especially his family. He went without so that his children would want for nothing. He will be missed greatly.

Toronto, ON

Donald “DJ” Gordon MacCulloch, Aug. 31, 1961 - Feb 23, 2024 Donald, aka “DJ”, passed away suddenly the morning of February 23, 2024. He was preceded by his parents Colin Harding and Marieli Kaelin MacCulloch, and older brother William Patrick. He is survived by his brother and great childhood buddy Andy, sister-in-law Brigitte, and nieces Marie-Michelle, Madison and Chip. DJ was born in Toronto. Shortly afterwards the family moved to Hong Kong where he was immersed into colonial life including cricket and tennis. Don also attended a Chinese kindergarten and would occasionally baffle us with his Cantonese. We visited Japan, the birthplace of his mother, and later our great aunt Dorothy in Greenock, Scotland on the way home in 1967. Donald reflected on these family trips fondly. DJ embraced Canadian culture including the epic Rose Park Drive ball hockey games where he honed his “toothpick” stick to advantage. He enjoyed Camp Hurontario for 7 years as a camper and then CIT. He especially loved spending summers at Point Ideal on Lake of Bays. Here he demonstrated his considerable tennis skills and was affectionally known as “the man”. His physique and speedos were legendary. He was a huge music lover; we have five suitcases of cassette tapes to prove it. Don attended high school at North Toronto CI. He was in his second year Commerce at Ryerson University when he was struck with a serious and debilitating mental illness. He never recovered. His father and later Andy did what they could to help but the illness, medication and treatments took their toll. As did the white rabbit and grizzly bear. He was cared for and comforted by the wonderful people in Durham MHS, at McKay and Colborne House, Ontario Shores and LTC at Glen Hill Terrace for over 40 years. He was beloved for his humour, smile and for making the best of things. There was an outpouring of love when he “retired” to LTC and upon his passing. We thank them all for their tireless dedication and compassion. We will be holding a fare thee well celebration including music at our Toronto home May 18. Please contact Andy if you wish to attend at amacculloch@rogers.com. If you wish, please make donations to Durham Mental Health Services: https://dmhs.ca/

Toronto, ON

The Griner family are saddened to announce the passing of Bill (William) Alan Griner. Son of the late William Alfred Griner and Edythe Ruth nee Pallister. Beloved husband to Helen Marie Nee Pearson and greatest Dad to John and Helena. Loving Grandad to Chloe and Ivy. Fond brother of Audree Wilson and uncle to Pat, Nancy, Susan, Carol and Bill. Bill grew up in Calgary until his family moved to Toronto in 1952. Sad to leave his friends, Bill completed high school and followed in his fathers footsteps into the high end men’s clothing business. He was an entrepreneur and creative business man, opening stores of his own and he often discussed business strategies and solutions with his friends. Regarded as a true gentleman with a memorable smile, Bill was a man of few words; but these words came with much wisdom and love. He was known for his impressive Donald Duck impression, sense of humour and his story telling ability. Famously known for the story of he and his father canoeing on Lake Moraine, where they encountered a feeding moose. As the moose raised its massive head above Bill’s father, soaked with water from the reeds hanging off its impressive antlers, he quietly stuttered, B,b,b,b, back paddle.. b, b, b, back paddle! Bill enjoyed attending Argo games with his two closest friends and Blue Jays games with his family, for many years. He developed a love for golf, both playing and watching. He especially treasured the time spent on the Green, with his dearest wife Helen, always aiming for that hole in one. Bill was tremendously loved and will be sorrowfully missed by many. We love you Dad and know you are at peace and smiling again, being reunited with Mum. Forever in our hearts. Interment to be held at Mount Pleasant Cemetery, followed by a celebration of life to be decided at a later date.
