Oscar Eugene Bedard

It is with great sadness that we announce that Oscar Bedard lost his brave fight with leukemia at the age of 71 years. Oscar’s life ended peacefully on Sunday, May 5th, 2013 with his family by his side. It is hard to adequately describe Oscar’s impact on this world. If you ask him about his career, he would say he was a teacher despite the fact he was an administrator much longer than a teacher. This is indeed an accurate portrayal of his life. Those of us lucky enough to have come into contact with him always learned and were often inspired. His footprint is indeed large and he will live on in the hearts of all he touched.

Oscar will be lovingly remembered by his wife Eve, his four children and their spouses; David and Carla, Gordon and Natasha, Kelly and John and Greg and Melissa, his six grandchildren; Tyler, Kasey, Alex, Ava, Naoka and Quinn along with numerous extended family members and friends. In a world too focused on personal gain, Oscar was a non-judgemental supporter of all. He was an outstanding husband, dad, grandpa and friend. Our tremendous grief is outweighed only by our endless wonderful memories.

A Celebration of Oscar’s Life will be held at St. John’s Lutheran Church on Friday, June 28th, 2013 at 1:00P.M. with Pastor Lee Loveridge officiating.

As an expression of sympathy, those who wish to do so may send donations in memory of Oscar to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada P.O. Box 1242, Station K, Toronto, Ontario M4P 9Z9.
