CUMMING, WILLIAM ROBERT MUNRO - 67, of Saint John, NB passed away peacefully on September 26, 2006 at the Saint John Regional Hospital. Born in Hammersmith, England in 1939 he was the son of the late William Robert and Sarah (Gemmell) Cumming. Bill spent his early youth in England and Scotland prior to immigrating to Canada in 1957, where he served in the Royal Canadian Navy aboard the HMCS Haida. Bill loved working with his hands. He was a hard working and creative millwright; well respected in his field. Retired from Irving Paper in 2003, Bill had previously worked for Dalby Machine Shop; Procor; and A.B. McKay and Associates. Bill enjoyed the challenge of devising new methods for efficiently completing tasks. Bill was known for his dedication to his family, thick Scots brogue, and booming tenor voice. Those who had the pleasure of hearing him sing did not often forget the experience. He was an avid rugby player in both Canada and England during the 1960's and 70's. Bill fulfilled a life-long dream to learn to play the bagpipes. Bill could often be found at the East Branch of the Saint John Regional Library checking out a half-dozen books at a time. Bill was an active blood donor for over 30 years, a long time member of the Royal Canadian Legion, Oakville Lodge # 400, and Albion Lodge # 1 and was a piper in the Kiwanis and Caledonian Pipe Bands. He will be sadly missed by his wife Bridget (Logue); daughters Roseanne Cumming of Winnipeg, MB and Sheelagh (Drew) Semper of Edmonton, AB; sisters Jeanette Henderson (Cranston) and Ann Taylor (Martin) both of England; numerous nieces, nephews and many relatives and friends in Canada, Scotland and England. Visitations will be at Fundy Funeral Home, 230 Westmorland Road, Saint John (646-2424) on Saturday September 30, 2006 from 10-11 a.m. The funeral service will be held from Fundy Funeral Home Chapel on Saturday September 30, 2006 at 11:00 a.m. Following cremation the interment will take place at a later date. Donations made to the Saint John Regional Hospital Oncology or Palliative Care Units; The Extra Mural Program or to the charity of the donor's choice in memory of Bill would be greatly appreciated. A Masonic Service was held Friday evening at 7:00 p.m. at the funeral home, followed by a Royal Canadian Legion Tribute Service at 7:15 p.m. [The Telegraph-Journal]
