  • Notes 
    • Reid F. Dunham, U.E.
      (Feb 9, 1919 - Mar 3, 2012)

      Passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family, on March 3rd 2012 at St. Joseph's Hospital, Hamilton, in his 94th year.  Recently from St. Joseph's Villa, Dundas, Reid lived for many years in Carlisle, ON.  Predeceased by his wife, Kathleen "Kay" (Wilson), infant daughter Karen Dianne and brothers Lorne and Jack.   Proud father of Walter of Mississauga ON, Dale (Carol) of Wyoming ON, David (Peggy) of London, ON, Craig (Anne) of Binbrook ON and presently Copenhagen Denmark, and Roger of Carlisle ON.  Proud grandfather of Mark, Andrew, Colin, Laura, Robert, Eric, and Matthew.  Survived by his brothers Don (the late Carole), Orville "Tiny" (Ruth), and sisters-in-law Ruby Dunham, Helen Wilson and Lois Wilson.

      Reid was born to Heather and Hilda Dunham in Arkona, ON, and was a WWII Pilot R.C.A.F., and British Naval Fleet Air  Arm.  Reid was also a long-time employee of the Province of Ontario Food Inspection branch, and served his community for many years on the Flamborough and Wentworth Public School Boards.  He was a long-time very active member of the Carlisle United Church.  He had a strong interest in genealogy.  In later years he compiled an extensive family history and documented his United Empire Loyalist roots, as he drove his camper throughout Ontario and Canada.

      Friends may visit with the family at KITCHING, STEEPE & LUDWIG FUNERAL HOME, 146 Mill St. N., Waterdown on Tuesday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m.  Funeral Service will be held at CARLISLE UNITED CHURCH, 1432 Centre Rd., Carlisle on Wednesday, March 7, 2012 at 11 a.m. with visitation from 10-11 a.m.  Reception to follow in church hall.  Interment at Arkona Cemetery at 3:30 p.m. followed by a reception.

      A grateful thank you to the amazing staff of St. Joseph's Hospital and St. Joseph's Villa, for their support to Reid and his family. In lieu of flowers, donations to Carlisle United Church or St. Joseph's Villa thankfully accepted.
