Edward (Ted) William Waring, May 17, 1927 - May 31, 2020

Edward William Waring


The Edward William Waring Memorial Award has been established in memory of Ted to honour his commitment to higher education. The award will be presented annually to an engineering student in Sheridan's Faculty of Applied Science and Technology. 

Ted, a veteran of WWII, proudly served in the Royal Navy on an aircraft carrier, which ignited his lifelong interest in aviation and his post-war career as an Engineer. He worked in the aircraft industry in England and Canada for his entire working life.

Ted was a strong proponent of family. He was very involved in all aspects of his children’s and grandchildren’s lives and was one of their greatest cheerleaders. He could often be found supporting his entire family at a pool, hockey arena, volleyball court, mountain bike trail, or horse show. Ted was also passionate about golf and bridge

Ted will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

Alexandra Raymond, July 10, 1993 - April 13, 2020

Alexandra Raymond

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Alexandra Valerie Raymond, at the much too young age of 26. Alex recently graduated from Sheridan College with an Honours Bachelor in Illustration and was looking forward to pursuing her dream of creating the unique and wonderous art and characters we all admired. Although Alex will not get to experience many of life's milestones, as we all wished she could have, we are grateful for the adventures she did have. A significant event for Alex was her trip to Italy, as well as many happy times spent with her family and friends. 

Cremation has taken place. A celebration of life will be planned for a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations in Alex's memory be made to Sheridan College.
