  3. Sadly we retire #17042 for JIm Tracey who passed away October 12, 2021. Our deepest sympathies to Monica, his children, grandchildren, family and friends. https://www.tributearchive.com/obituaries/22649269/james-jim-alan-tracey TRACEY, James Alan "Jim" September 5, 1953 - October 12, 2021 Jim Tracey passed away peacefully at his home in Puce, Ontario early in the morning of October 12th with his beloved wife, Monica, by his side. In his final days, he was surrounded by his loving family and friends. Jim was the most caring man you could ever hope to meet, and a great entertainer. He loved meeting and talking with people, no matter their age, gender, race or religion. He could walk into a room full of strangers and have them laughing and sharing stories within minutes. Wherever he went he inspired love and created friendships. He played guitar and specialized in singing rugby songs for the amusement of his family and friends. He built a shack on the banks of the Puce River which was his idea of paradise, a place to hang out, share stories and enjoy life to the fullest. Jim Tracey began his career with CKCO television in the 1970s and then continued with CBC when it took over the station. He was an exceptional cameraman and editor, working for both English and French programs. In 1994, he became one of a team of four video journalists when CBC re-opened its Windsor station. His storytelling skills soon led him to become the journalist on CBC’s popular consumer complaint feature, the Gripe Line. Several years later, Casino Windsor (now Ceasars) hired him as multi-media manager for their growing operation, a position he held for 15 years. Jim ended his professional life working for the Community Support Centre of Essex County. He also spent many years volunteering as a coach for the Windsor Girls Rugby team. Above all, Jim Tracey loved spending time with his family. He worshipped his children and grandchildren and they adored him. Jim is the son of Cecile (nee Marentette) Tracey and the late Stanley Tracey. He is survived by his loving wife Monica, sons Jason (Nicole) and Derrick (Amanda) and daughter, Jessica Tracey along with his brothers, Kevin (Doris) and Mark Tracey and sister, Sherry (Martin) Godard and six grandchildren, Carson, Nolan, Emerson, Emilie and Alex Tracey and Madison Haskell. The family is planning a celebration of life for Saturday, October 16th from noon until 4 p.m. at a private location. As per Jim's wishes, cremation has taken place. Arrangements entrusted to SIMPLE CHOICE (Dougall) 519-254-2585. Online condolences and cherished memories may be shared with the family at www.simplechoicecremation.ca

    Colours Ride - Weather Permitting

    Hi 016 Members, From the weather forecast Sunday looks like a cool but doable day for a colours ride. Thought we could do a Thames River cruise. From Sarnia head to Thamesville for lunch at Johnny Quests, then follow the Thames River to Chatham, stop at a Tim Horton's for a coffee break. Then keep following the south side, to the bridge, then the north side of the Thames River a bit more then we would head to Wallaceburg, stop for a Tim's for a break, then if time permits head to the River Road home. If not, either take 40 or Kimball Side Rd. Should be home late afternoon. Let's meet at the Tim Horton’s on the London Line at 9:45 with KSU at 10:15.

  9. Mike was indeed very involved with the development of CMC, being the second 1st Officer of CMC with it's first expansion to a chapter in Kingston ON, the 1st Officer of 047, a dedicated member of 036 Orangeville (I don't recall if he was an Officer there) and then back to the Thousand Islands. Mike always took the time for an honour wave to the cows as he was riding by. A really great guy who will be missed RIP Mike -Irma
  10. Very sorry to read this. RIP Gummiente.
  11. Sad to hear of Mike's passing! RIP Gummiente
  12. I received a message on Tuesday that Mike "Gummiente" Palmer passed away from complications of cancer. Anyone who has been around the CMC for a while might remember Mike as the 1st Officer of the original 2nd chapter of the CMC. Mike later moved to Durham Ontario where he revitalized the Owen Sound chapter and rebranded it as Grey County. He was known locally as the guy with a Bull Dog in the side car of his Ural who would drive it in the winter time to a local craft brewery for refreshments. LOL Mike was no longer a active member of the CMC however he was active in the motorcycle community in Kingston where he worked at the Harley/Honda dealership. Below is the announcement from Kingston Harley. It is with a heavy heart that we learn of the passing of a dear member of the Kingston Harley-Davidson | MotoSport Plus family, Mike Palmer. Many will remember Mike as a member of our Parts team, always doing what he could to help customers get their bikes back on the road, push their performance or customize them. But to us Mike was a member of our family, a staple in our store, someone who was always passionate about everything he did and was willing to take the time to help those around him. Our thoughts are with Mike's friends, family and anyone else who had the pleasure of knowing him. The riding community has lost an incredible member today. Rest In Peace Mike. Rip Mike and thank you as one of the early pioneers of the CMC that made it the great club that is is.
  13. Sadly we retire #45054 for Robert "Bob" Bourdeau. Our deepest condolences to all his family and friends. https://www.tributearchive.com/obituaries/21512295/robert-maurice-bourdeau/trenton/ontario/john-r-bush-funeral-home BOURDEAU, Robert "Bob" - It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Bob at the Trenton Memorial Hospital on Wednesday, June 23rd, 2021, in his 76th year.

    016 Sarnia Chapter FYI!

    until
    Hello, 016 Chapter Members, I know we don't have a ride booked for this Wednesday, July 14th. evening but when I look at the weather it looks too nice not to ride! Wednesday's weather shows 26c and 24% chance of rain so it looks like a perfect evening for us to ride! Can I suggest meeting at Tim Horton's on London Line at 6:15 with KSU at 6:45? We can either ride to the Ipperwash Beach House or to Grand Bend for Ice Cream. You can decide, I will lead! Ok, next week's ride to the Cool Cumber, Strathroy which also has Ice cream but does that matter! Absolutely not! For members that have not been out, come on out it can't be anything but a good time! You never know you might be the winner of the 50/50 draw! For our members in Forest, Thedford and Grand Bend, if you can join us let me know and I will make sure we come to you so you can join in! It would be great to see you, it has been way too long!! Hope to see you out, Paul
