Alan Tyler - June 8, 2016

I am sorry to report the passing of NY 37 Charter Member, Alan Tyler on June 8, 2016. More information will be shared as it come available.

Due to Alan Tyler being a lot of things to a lot of people, and the family just wasn't up
for what everybody would have wanted to do for a send-off... It would have
been a BIG deal for sure. They decided to do only a small family remembrance,

However, when the Chapter has their annual picnic and ride this summer, they will do a service of their own at that time. And although delayed, they would like to be able to have the family get the RKMC flag and Angel coin. Alan's name will be added to the RKMC Memorial.

Bill Beynon - January 22nd, 2016


It is with a sad heart that I must pass on the news of the death of Charter Member of NH 4, Bill Beynon, who passed away on Friday.

More details will be shared as I receive them.

For those of you who may not have had the opportunity to meet and know him, you missed out. Bill was originally a member of NH 1 but when he heard there were starting a Chapter in the Monadnock Region, he signed right up. He lived in Dublin at the time and attended meetings regularly. Even though he moved to Mississippi years ago he kept in touch with the chapter. He so wanted them to come and visit him down there. He purchased land and had a lake where he stocked fish and brought his grandchildren to fish. An avid hunter he enjoyed the area and was always talking about the deer hunting and fishing that he was doing. Over the years he sent in extra funds and sponsored a couple of members to keep our numbers up.

Dave Conrad

Sorry for the late notice, but by the time I was notified it was too late. One of our original founding members, and former president Dave Conrad, has passed away at the age of 76. Dave was retired from Toronto Fire years ago, and had the nickname of "Camper Dave", which I think he got after bringing a camper to a bike rally or convention. Rabbit Roberge or Kevin Kerrivan might remember the story better.

Dave was a good man. We received notice late through the Union website, via the retirees' association. His service was this morning in Marmora.
