Charlene! My deepest sympathy on the loss of your father. Keep his memory close at heart and you mourn his loss

My condolences on the death of Mr. Taylor. We are long time neighbours of the family and I remember lots of chats over the fence during the summer months. You are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Sorry for your loss Tony and Family. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

We only knew Derm during the last year or so of his life, at Pleasant View Towers, 4SE, but in that time we enjoyed his sense of humour and his friendship. We remember fondly his tuna photo (which he proudly called us in to see when he had it mounted in his room) and his fondness for Gordie Howe. We will miss delivering him The Telegram.

Aunt Helen and Family,

Thinking about all of you during this time and sending our condolences.

Charlene, so sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. Although I didn’t know him personally, he must have been a great man as he obviously lives on in you. Cherish your wonderful memories, we’re thinking of you and your family at this very difficult time. We’ll see you soon.

So sorry to hear of your loss. I didn’t know Mr. Taylor personally but he worked for years with my late father Justin O’Brien at Air Canada. For many years afterwards, Derm’s name would come up from time to time. And after my father passed away in 1998, our late mother Marian O’Brien would mention his name now and then.
They spoke highly of Derm and his work at Air Canada. Condolences to his wife and family.

We are very sorry for your loss. And we’ll keep you and your family in our prayers.

Helen and family.
We were so very sad to hear of Derm’s passing. Both Bob and I worked with Derm for many years at Air Canada and considered him to be a good friend and colleague. We are visiting our grandchildren in Alberta and cannot visit in person but our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Laurie Ann .. My deepest condolences to you all on the passing of your Dad … I have many great memories of him and your family from my time on MacPherson Ave … Thoughts are with you all ..
“You may not be able to see him, you may not be able to touch him, but you’ll feel him with you in everything you do.” Lost my Mom 2 years ago and there’s nothing more true than these words !! God Bless !!

Our sincere sympathy on the passing of Derm. Both Bill & I had the pleasure of working with Derm at AC in YYT. Our thoughts and payers are with Helen and family at this difficult time. May the many memories of good times help to ease your grief. Love & Prayers Bill & Margo Hand.
