Dear Dave, Jim and family

Dear Jim and Mrs Vivian and family
I was sorry to hear that Mr Vivian has died, after a long and full life. It was such a long time ago when I would ring the bell at 18 Falkland St, to be greeted with Now then young Lawton. Come in young Lawton. More than 50 years in fact. I was always welcome at your place.
I hope you are all doing ok.
All good wishes from Twickenham, England

Mrs. Vivian and family. Very sorry to hear of Mr. Vivian’s passing. My sincere condolences. Sharon (Book) Capell

Cec was an important person in my life. He hired me when I was only 19 and we have worked together and stayed in touch for over 60 years. He became a mentor before the word was invented. His work ethic, integrity, principled, open and honest approach to life was a rare and valuable example to emulate. All seasoned with a healthy dash of good humour.
Cec Vivian was a good man . He’ll be remembered..
Maxine, please accept my deepest condolences..
Treasure the memories. 🙏

I would like to offer my condolences to the family. Cec made a valuable contribution to the Family History Society, leading the indexing of theSt Paul’s parish records. He was a perfectionist in this work and he lead a team of volunteers with care. Maxine and family, my sympathy. Elsa Flack

Sorry for your loss,cecil Vivian I first met when he joined the singing legionnaires.he was a quiet and pleasant man.. may he be rewarded for life.he will be remember.

Mrs. Vivian and family, my condolences on the passing of Mr. Vivian. I well remember our visits to your house in Grand Falls on our trips across the Island. It was always a welcome break on that long trip. Mr. Vivan used to take great delight in teasing me about the time he came to look after me in the middle of the night so my dad could take my mother to the hospital. He had to walk through a blizzard; thankfully, it was only two houses away! Treasure your memories. I like to think those NLP engineers are playing bridge together again.

Maxine and family,
Very sorry to hear about Cec’s passing. Lots of fond memories of many wonderful conversations over the years.
Thinking about you all at this difficult time.

Jim and family,

My condolences on your Dad’s passing.


Having worked with Mr. Vivian a number of years at Newfoundland Power, enjoyed our family visits at his home during many Christmases and recent encounters at Fortis annual meetings, I always found him to be a sincere, genuine human being and a perfect gentleman. May he rest in peace. My sincere condolence to Maxine and family.

Very sad news, but a full life well-lived.
I was a “golf buddy” both hacking around Bally Haly and in years gone by, at The Palm Bay Club in Sarasota.
Cec was always pleasant, humorous and a valued companion.
Norma & I send our condolences to Maxine and to the rest of his Family.

With deepest sympathy to Maxine and Family on Cec’s passing.

Maxine, Beverley & family
So sorry to hear of Ces’s passing, please accept my most sincere condolences. I am not sure if Cec ever really liked grocery shopping, but I got the feeling he did enjoy the social aspect of it. He would always find someone to chat with while Maxine would do the shopping but he would usually find something he liked to ‘throw in the cart’ as well, I always enjoyed his company. May you all find comfort as you reflect over the many memories you have collected along the way.

Maxine and the Vivian family.. We are saddened to learn of Cec’s passing. Your family were some of the earliest family friends we can remember. Yourself and Cec were dear friends of my parents and we always looked forward to seeing you in Grand Falls and in Bobby’s Cove. We know Cec was a very well respected Professional Engineer, but he would have been a great comedian as well. Rest In Peace Cec.. You will be sadly missed by all.
