Zavagno, David Joseph

David Joseph Zavagno, aged 70, of Clarington,
passed away at home on Saturday August 16, 2014.

Dave was born in Toronto, Ontario on January 12, 1944. He attended New Toronto High School and began his working career as a draftsman. He moved into manufacturing and worked as a purchaser for Jacuzzi, then for Stanley. Finally he entered into a partnership to set up Steelwood Doors and served as Vice President of Manufacturing until his retirement in 2002.

Dave enjoyed drawing, designing and building whimsical gifts, renovating, maintaining the grounds of his property, and collecting and restoring antiques. Every project he completed with his own special blend of creativity and attention to detail. He appreciated music, architecture, art, woodcarving, stand-up comedy, "rat rods", fine cuisine, and a good bottle of wine. He also loved a succession of Irish Wolfhounds.

David was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in December 2012 and spent the next twenty months fighting it in every way he could. During this time he bought a "rat rod" and helped to direct its rebuilding, then discovered "Steampunk" and began designing and building industrial-style lamps. He led everyone who loved him throughout the journey with optimism and bravery. Dave had a true heart and loved unconditionally.

Dave is survived by his wife, Ann (nee Webb), first wife, Sandra (nee Sills), children: Julie, Aimee, Maggie (Lee), Lee (Mel), Connal (Jen) and Quinn, sisters: Tina (Ray) and Gina (Glen), and brother, Jerry (Pat).

Prout, Cynthia Blanche

(nee Atkins)
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Cynthia Prout at the Bowmanville Hospital on Saturday July 19th, 2014 at the age of 77. Cynthia is survived by her beloved husband Luke, her children Martha Hendrikx (the late Mark), Adam Hickey (Victoria) and her step children Kim Prout (Laurie) and Donnie and Randy Prout. She will be lovingly remembered by her grandchildren: Marissa, David (Kendra), Daniel, Rebecca and Vincent Hendrikx; Tyler and Oliver Hickey; Kym Prout and Hunter Sol Prout. Terribly missed by her 4 legged family of cats and dogs. Remembered fondly by the Hickey family, the Hannah family, Pierrette Godin, the Burnett family and her large A.A. family.
Cynthia was born in Bangalore, India just before WWII, where her father was stationed with the British Army. She came to Canada when she was 11 years old, settling in Toronto, then marrying and having children in the Brampton area. When her children were little she moved up to the Yukon for a few years, before settling in Clarington, Ontario where she met the love of her life, Luke. Having worked her whole life she went back to night school to get her degree at McMaster in Addictions and Mental Health, then used that to help start and later become, the Director of Destiny Manor, a drug and alcohol rehab centre for women.
Six years ago, Cynthia’s life was changed forever with a car accident when the other driver was on her cell phone, ran 2 red lights and smashed into Luke and Cynthia. Cynthia suffered brain damage and suffered slowly for 6 years, then very rapidly for the past few months. Despite this, Cynthia remained a loyal and loving friend and family member. She was to have celebrated her 37th A.A. anniversary this coming December, an accomplishment she was extremely proud of.
Thanks to the amazing Dr. Albert, Dr. John Rundle and the nurses on the 2nd floor of Bowmanville Hospital. Cynthia was treated with nothing other than respect, dignity and love during her stay. We very much appreciate all they did for her and us, during these final 2 weeks.

Visitation will be held at NORTHCUTT ELLIOTT FUNERAL HOME, 53 Division Street North, Bowmanville, on Monday July 28, 2014 from 2-4 and 6-8 pm.

Words of Wisdom

“Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.

And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb.

And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.”

- Khalil Gibran, The Prophet


Many co-workers and colleagues that Cathy touched during her 35-year career at Ernst & Young on Bay Street will feel her loss as well as the numerous friends she made in the equestrian community as she pursued her life-long love of horses and all four-legged creatures. While all those Cathy gave her unique gift of caring, compassion and support are too many to mention, of special note is family friend and her "adopted son" Florian Rrjoli. Cathy's boss at Ernst & Young, Chief Financial Officer and Partner Alan Smith summed up the way many people feel with these words: "Cathy, if I close my eyes, I can picture back in time 20 years ago and see you smiling and telling me about the girls and about the horses. You were always such a positive person and I'm sure you have relied on that to give you strength and courage these many years"
