COLEY, Oliver L. - The family of Oliver L. Coley announces his passing early Sunday morning, June 11, 2006, just short of his 96th birthday. Oliver was born in Leicester, England on July 7, 1910 to Thomas and Mary Coley (nee Charlton). He was the brother of Edward, Tom, Ernie, Henry, Millie Harding and Dorothy Sumner, all predeceased. The family immigrated to Canada when Oliver was one year of age. Oliver was raised in Morse Place (Winnipeg), Manitoba where he met his wife, Delta. Delta and Oliver were married on July 1, 1933 and would have celebrated 73 years of marriage in three weeks time. Together they raised three children, Glen (wife Honor, predeceased), Douglas (wife Wenda), and Louise (husband Gary Barr). Oliver was grandfather to Casey (Pauline, predeceased) and Lynette, Cory and Arthur, Colene and Richard, Geoff and Brenda, Bruce and Lisa, Darrell and Chantal, and Laura. Six great-grandchildren round out the family: Karl and Katie Klopfer, Alexander and Emma Coley, Connor Coley, and Mirabelle Barr. Oliver was a master machinist by trade and came to Sudbury in 1937 to work for INCO. Thereafter he became a machine shop teacher at Sudbury Mining and Technical School. In 1963 he became the first Technical Director at the new Garson-Falconbridge Secondary School where he worked until his retirement in 1972. He was past-president and life member of the Sudbury District Children's Aid Society, past-president and life member of the Sudbury District Kennel Club, a member of the Ontario Secondary School Teachers' Federation and a member of Nickel Lodge 427. Friends and family enjoyed many happy times at camp on the West Arm Narrows and at the Coley's post- retirement home in Largo, Florida. Oliver so enjoyed a good fishing outing, golfing, duck and goose hunting. Oh how we were regaled by those stories! A celebration of Oliver's life will take place at JACKSON AND BARNARD FUNERAL HOME, 233 Larch Street on Friday, June 16, 2006. Visitation at 10 a.m. with a memorial service to follow at 11:30. Tributes in honour of Oliver may be made to the Shriners' Hospital, 1529 Cedar Avenue, Montreal, PQ H3G 1A6 or to the CNIB.
