On February 23, 2001, the Fredericton City Old Boys' was saddened by the loss of Mark Lawrence who died in a skiing accident. Mark who grew up in Amherst Nova Scotia was a veterinarian having obtained his DVM degree in 1983 from the Ontario Veterinary College. He was the dedicated owner of Valley Veterinary Hospitals, a successful small animal practice here in Fredericton. Mark was a passionate practitioner who loved veterinary medicine and enjoyed handing on his skills to others.
Mark leaves behind his wife and best friend Debbie, sons David and Brendan and daughter Christie.
Mark, an excellent athletic, came to the club as a student of the game but left teaching us all the virtues of hard work, dependability and attitude.
In March of 2004 the Old Boys created the Mark Lawrence Trophy to remind us all of the special "character" he brought to the club.
Jean Mark Ouellette (JO)
The Old Boys lost a friend and a team mate when Jean Marc died on June 19th, 2007 at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital in Fredericton. He was born on September 1st, 1965, in Notre- Dame Du Lac, QC and was raised in Campbellton, NB. He earned a Bachelors of Arts Degree (History) in 1987 and was conferred a Degree of Law in 1990 from the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton. Fluently bilingual, he was admitted to the Law Society of New Brunswick in 1991.
Jean-Marc is survived by his loving wife, Robyn Plourde, father, Gerry "Red" Ouellette, mother, Lucille Beaulieu, and sister, Monique (Rick) Williams.
Jean-Marc was known for his ability to develop strong friendships. His love of sports was fulfilled through golf, hockey, soccer and cycling. He enjoyed movies and novels and was considered an amateur writer of scripts and books.Though it is with sadness that we accept his passing we will always remember his humor off the pitch and his skills on it.
Pat Lee (Spider)
Pat Lee passed away peacefully and comfortably, at his well-loved Fredericton home on January 3, 2014. As was his way in life, Pat made his exit amid the company, love, and respect of many friends and family members. Pat always made time for the people he knew and loved. Pat graduated from Simonds High School in 1974, and enrolled at UNB that fall. After Pat traveled the world, he settled in Fredericton to become a well respected, self employed painter. "Spider" played Loyalist rugby and Old Boys soccer, and ran marathons and the Cabot Trail many times. He enjoyed singing with the River Valley Barbershop Chorus. Pat was a long time member of the Fredericton Shambhala Center, and his beautiful gardens made the big yellow house a focal point on Hanwell Road. Pat was born in Saint John, NB, the eldest son of Blanche Marie (Murphy) and the late John Francis Lee, both of St. Stephen. He is survived by his wife Diane Terry-Lee, his siblings Joanne (Dave) Cape, Mark (Patricia) Lee, Andrew Lee, Rosemary (Paul Rayman) Lee, and Monica (Jim Bulmer) Lee, nieces and nephews Holly (Cole) Rispin, Graham Lee, Erin Cape, Heather Cape, a large extended family of aunts, uncles and cousins, and hundreds of friends. Pat was a long time Old Boys member. When Pat first joined the Old Boys, he did not possess a lot of soccer skills but what he lacked in skill he more than made up for in his die hard work ethic. Pat was a "Work Horse" on the field constantly challenging the ball and never giving up. Pat, aka Spider, did not sit on the sidelines of life, he was a humorous and vibrant participant. Pat would like it if you could give the gift of time to people you care about. He will be dearly missed.
