Other Life Events

ObituaryThe obituary for Archibald Thompson Blandford read: BLANDFORD, Archibald (Archie) Thompson - (1928 - 2013) Archie Blandford was a teacher. He taught during education's golden age in London, Ontario. Archie who died early Sunday, August 18 was also a brother, uncle, vice-principal, entrepreneur, tree farmer, minor hockey executive, coach, car enthusiast, cottager, snowbird, golfer and a son of a Lieutenant in the Royal Canadian Field Artillery and a nurse trained at Toronto General. Archie earned a Masters in Education from Wayne State University and was a teacher and vice principal in London public school system for 34 years. He was a partner in an import export business and was an avid antique collector and dealer. Archie was instrumental in establishing the South Bruce Beach Cottage Association and was its secretary-treasurer for 39 years until 2006. He was an active director on the board of Forest Park in North Fort Myers, Florida and was an engaged participant at meetings at his residence at InSpirit. Archie was iconic, doing things his way, yet, always with courtesy. The tragedy of all of this is found in the debilitating cancer that stole the joy from his final few months: a life of energy and experience devolved to a hospital bed. We need not remember Archie Blandford that way. Many of us have powerful memories of the man and his love of teaching not just the three Rs, but sports, antiques, cars, cottaging, tree farming, snowbirding and more. Born in London November 8, 1928, son of Margaret Templeton Thompson and Raymond Douglas Blandford. He is survived by his sister, Margaret (Peggy) E.G. Hargraft, nieces and nephews: Peggy, Duff and Sandy Stewart and Anne Duffey and Doug Hargraft. Predeceased by his sister Mary Jane Stewart (1923-2004) and brother Raymond Frederick (1921-2007). A service of remembrance will be held at InSpirit Residences, 81 Base Line West, London on Saturday, August 24 at 1:30 p.m. and at Ainsdale Golf Course, just outside of Kincardine on Highway 21 on Sunday, September 1 at 2 p.m. Memorial donations may be made to the Kincardine and Community Health Care Foundation, 43 Queen Street, Kincardine, ON, N2Z 1G6. Internment at Woodland Cemetery, London.2
