On December 27, Junior Ward, an exceptional community volunteer, passed away. Junior served on the CCRA executive for more than seven years in various positions, most recently as Director responsible for monitoring transportation issues affecting our community. Junior was always quick to volunteer to walk in local parades with the CCRA banner and help at our community events, most memorably as bartender at our spring socials. Junior had a smile and sense of humour that could light up any room. We will miss him terribly, and extend our deepest sympathies to his wife Elsa, his children Deborah and Richard, and their families. More
