The Amherst News - - OBITUARIES -

It is with great sad­ness that we an­nounce the pass­ing of Owen Ed­ward Avard Stiles, 66, of St. Isi­dore, On­tario on Novem­ber 13, 201 at the Ot­tawa Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal.

Born in Amherst, Nova Sco­tia, he was the son of the late Bed­ford and Elaine Stiles.

Those who knew Owen re­mem­ber a de­voted Chris­tian who was al­ways quick to help any­one in need. He had a warm and car­ing per­son­al­ity, and al­ways en­joyed a good laugh with fam­ily and friends. He had a life­long love of fly­ing, found joy in watch­ing horse jump­ing, and looked for­ward to spend­ing time play­ing his on­line train sim­u­la­tion pro­grams. Owen was a proud mem­ber of the Cana­dian

Armed Forces for 33 years. Fol­low­ing his re­tire­ment from the mil­i­tary, he was em­ployed by L3 Com­mu­ni­ca­tions.

Owen will be sadly missed by his wife of al­most 23 years, Vir­ginia (nee Derowin) Stiles; daugh­ter, Ch­eryl (Jack) Kooy, Pen­tic­ton, B.C., and son, Craig (An­gela) Stiles, Ge­orge­town, ON; grand­mother Pauline Read, Amherst, NS; grand­chil­dren Ali­cia Slade, Cal­gary, AB and Dustin Slade, Kelowna, B.C.; great­grand­son Jonathan Roach, Kam­ploops, B.C.; sib­lings Glo­ria (Charles) Joyce, Brook­field, NS, Diane (Vic­tor) Ba­con, Up­per Nap­pan, NS, David (Heather) Stiles, Bramp­ton, ON, Linda Adams, Southamp­ton, NS, Ray­mond Stiles, Southamp­ton, NS, Nancy (John) Steeves, Kingston,
