Jeffery Kenneth REID
By Frank R. GARDINER Thursday, December 12, 2002 -- Print Edition, Page A30
Son, brother, uncle, friend. Born Jan. 18, 1945, in Goderich, Ontario Died Oct. 19 in Barrie, Ontario, of lung cancer, aged Growing up in small town Goderich, Ontario, during the early 1950s, was for Jeff and his many neighbourhood pals a wonderful Huckleberry Finn existence: dogs, hockey, golfing, cub scouts, enduring school but skipping North Street United Sunday School whenever possible, caddying and hunting for golf balls, swimming, doing "ringers" up on the Square, bell-hopping for tips at the Bedford Hotel, smoking and shooting pool at Finchers Pool Room the sole purpose being to graduate to Craigie's Pool Hall, as we lied and pretended to be much older and wiser than our 14 years.
During the summer, we learned at a very early age the fun and the dangers of beautiful Lake Huron. We played in the sand and took cavalier pride in our individual swimming abilities. Each summer, we rallied to our Goderich Swim Team at Judith Gooderham Memorial pool to beat the swim teams of Listowel, Clinton, and the dreaded Saint Mary's.
Nothing could touch us in this our wonderful arrogance of youth or so we thought -- until the early evening of Wednesday, July 27, 1960. On the Crediton sideroad heading for Grand Bend after another swim-meet victory at Saint Mary's, tragedy struck.
The 21-year-old driver of a stolen car crashed head-on into the Goderich Swim Team car, killing the drivers of both cars and injuring all other five occupants of the Goderich car. One of the occupants, Jeff REID, suffered concussion and, to quote from the Goderich Signal Star at that time, "remains semi-conscious in St. Joseph's Hospital, London."
After 31 days, Jeff regained consciousness and began to slowly recover from his massive injuries --but never fully. And Jeff knew it. We, his childhood Friends, also knew it as did his loving parents. So, too, did Jeff's younger loyal and loving brother, Rod and devoted sister, Jodie. Jeff struggled on in his characteristic fashion, but life had been changed forever.
For all the rest of us on the swim team, that small part of our life was over and we moved onward and upward in studies and life. Jeff stayed behind to battle the onset of epileptic seizures resulting from his severe head injuries. Jeff never complained as he fought on with, as he jokingly mused, "the hand fate had dealt him." As a natural, charismatic leader he released all his old Friends and family from any guilt in his charming, self-deprecating fashion. Nobody would see his tears.
Jeff was forced to follow a different and much tougher path: from high school to the navy, heavy drinking, then to construction, unemployment, failed marriages (but with brief glimpses of happiness from Alice, then Peg and later Jean McARTHUR.) His life was one of rough relationships, brief moments of fun, laughter and family, and dark moments of heavy smoking and drinking and black depression. And finally, a place to call "home" at the Simcoe Hotel in Barrie watched over by a loving, saintly woman -- Jeff's best friend and family -- Jean McARTHUR.
When diagnosed with cancer this past September (and losing breath and weight rapidly), Jeff reassured his brother Rod and sister Jodie right up to the very end that "I've lived the life I have and I can't hang my head now, I'll have to take what comes." And Jeff did just that -- hiding his fears as best he could.
At the memorial service in Barrie, Jodie read The Ordinary Man by Canadian poet Robert SERVICE. After the service, all of Jeff's family and drinking pals from all parts of his life, met to celebrate with stories, pictures, laughter and tears this quite remarkable "ordinary man."
Frank is a friend of Jeff. He crafted this with help from Jeff's siblings and Friends.

Margie EVANS' spirit drew people to her
She fought for women's rights with unique style 'She operated on a level very few people grasped'
Ashante INFANTRY Staff Reporter
Margie EVANS was the stereotypical doctor's wife: delightful designer-clad hostess and crack fundraiser -- when she wasn't fighting for women's rights.
"She was so smart and perceptive but was treated like a dumb little thing, because she was so gorgeous and funny and a doctor's wife," said sculptor and feminist Maryon KANTAROFF.
"Meanwhile, she operated on a completely different level that very few people grasped, which is why she was so valuable to the movement."
The charismatic and stylish Marina Marguerite EVANS, 76, died December 5 of cancer.
She was born in Port Credit, the eldest daughter of a father who farmed and lectured at the University of Guelph and a mother who died when she was still a teenager.
The family attended St. Cyril and Methody Macedono-Bulgarian Orthodox Cathedral in Toronto and she encountered her husband at one of the church's picnics at the bottom of Don Mills Rd.
"I was standing talking to someone, gesturing with my arms open and she walked right into them and said, 'Thank you, I'd love to,' because everyone was dancing all around us," said Carl recalling that fortuitous meeting. After the couple wed, they lived on her family's farm, where Mrs. EVANS did her father's bookkeeping while her husband studied optometry.
After he established a successful practice in Scarborough, they moved into the Don Mills Rd. area and Mrs. EVANS stayed home with their three children.
When the optometry school was being moved from Toronto to the University of Waterloo she threw "a little party" at their home which raised $100,000 for the faculty.
"Her talent was collecting people; she threw the most wonderful parties and was fun to be with," said long-time friend Donald REID.
At age 40, Mrs. EVANS enrolled at Ryerson to study radio and television arts. After graduation she worked as a researcher, first at CFTO-Television, then at Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
In 1969, she was invited to join a group called the New Feminists founded by her childhood friend Kantaroff. What followed were city hall demonstrations, petitions and extensive discussions about women's rights.
"Marina was not an academic, not a politician," recalled Kantaroff. "She didn't do too much public speaking. Her contribution was in helping, being supportive and in bringing to consciousness-raising a certain humanity.
"A lot of women wanted to just rail against their husbands and lovers, but we needed to know about us and understand ourselves."
Some of the men, including Carl, were so supportive they formed a group of their own.
"She never believed in bra-burning and stuff like that, but she wanted equality," he said.
In 1980, Mrs. EVANS became the first, and so far only, female president of Canadian Macedonian Place, a seniors' apartment complex on O'Connor Dr.
"She was always kind and generous both of her time and with her spirit to ensure the seniors were well looked after in their twilight years," said lawyer Chris PALLIARE, who served on the board.
Mrs. EVANS also worked on the election campaigns of David COLLENETTE, Alan REDWAY and Dennis TIMBRELL.
"She was one of the best political organizers I've ever known," said health-care consultant TIMBRELL, who ran for leadership of the Ontario Conservatives in 1985.
"She had wonderful people skills, an infectious laugh and a joie de vivre that made everyone want to be there."
Always at the centre of her life was the church that she attended since childhood; she taught Sunday school and directed and danced in its folk-dance group.
"As progressive as she was, she kept all our traditions," said daughter Paulette.
Mrs. EVANS leaves her husband of 54 years, daughters Paulette and Carla, son Tom, sister Tresa and three grandchildren.

Beloved philanthropist left a rich legacy
Irving ZUCKER cared passionately about the arts
Order of Canada among many honours in life
Paul MORSE Torstar News Service
Irving ZUCKER is best known as Hamilton's most celebrated patron of the arts and learning.
But he was so much more.
An Order of Canada recipient, a Canada Council for the Arts member, World War 2 veteran, founder of a radio station and a successful entrepreneur -- Mr. ZUCKER was a something of a Renaissance man.
The long-time philanthropist died as a result of heart surgery at Toronto General Hospital Sunday morning. He was 82.
"He was a great friend. We worked on a lot of projects together and he will be sorely missed," said Heritage Minister Sheila COPPS, Member of Parliament for Hamilton East. "He had a finger in a lot of pies."
Even in retirement, Mr. ZUCKER was active on the Canada Council and was a citizenship court judge.
"He really, really cared about his Hamilton community, and his (Jewish) faith was really important to him," COPPS said.
Bernard BASKIN, rabbi emeritus of Hamilton's Temple Anshe Sholom, gave the eulogy at Mr. ZUCKER's funeral yesterday at Adas Israel Synagogue, attended by more than 300 people. Those in attendance included COPPS, former Ontario lieutenant-governor Lincoln ALEXANDER, local politicians and members of the arts community.
Outlining the many accomplishments of his late friend, BASKIN said that for Mr. ZUCKER, wealth was an instrument to be used for improving the world, not a deity to be worshipped.
"He was an outstanding philanthropist," BASKIN said in an interview. "I don't know anyone else who measures up to the depth and variety of his giving."
He believes Mr. ZUCKER's giving nature was a product of his early life. "He came from a modest background. He became successful early in life. Perhaps he felt he had to give something back."
Across Hamilton, grieving community leaders remembered a man who left a lasting legacy on the city's artistic life.
Larissa CIUPKA, communications officer with the Art Gallery of Hamilton, said Mr. ZUCKER defied description.
"He was larger than life and yet very approachable, friendly, happy to see you."
As a philanthropist, she said, he led by example. "It's one thing to get up on a soapbox and talk about it, it's another thing to actually do it. He was a doer."
"I'm devastated," said Theatre Aquarius artistic director Max REIMER.
"He was one of the first people I met when I came here. He took me out and talked the theatre and the city as if it was his. It was pretty exciting to think there was somebody like that here."
Mr. ZUCKER, or Zeke to his Friends, was born in Hamilton in 1920 and grew up in the city's north end, where his father was a watchmaker. He joined the Royal Canadian Air Force during World War 2 and trained aircrew in bombing and gunnery.
He became interested in broadcasting after the war, and founded CHIQ radio and later CHAM in Hamilton. He eventually assembled a network of radio stations in Ontario and eastern Canada. He bought CKOC/K-Lite FM in Hamilton and CJBK in London, Ontario, in 1993 and sold them three years ago.
In addition to his broadcasting interests, Mr. ZUCKER was president of Standard Industries Ltd. and Public Service Lighting Inc., and a director of Income Life Insurance Co.
During the 1960s, Mr. ZUCKER began to acquire paintings and sculptures. By the 1980s, he was concentrating on his art collection.
"He was always interested in upcoming and established artists," said Linda MacRAE, owner of Westdale Gallery and a long-time friend.
"He was always very much interested in abstract art and so he always wanted to be made aware of any new artist who'd come to my gallery," she said.
"He was like a kid in a candy store, actually."
In 1988, Mr. ZUCKER provided the funds for the restoration of the Blair Bruce painting collection at the Art Gallery of Hamilton. He donated works of art valued at $2.5 million to the gallery in 1991 and his $500,000 donation was instrumental in allowing Theatre Aquarius to proceed with the construction of its new theatre building.
In 1994, he donated seven sculptures that had adorned his own garden to the Art Gallery of Hamilton. The pieces are located in the Irving Zucker Sculpture Court on Commonwealth Square adjacent to the gallery.
Louise DOMPIERRE, Art Gallery of Hamilton president, said she will meet with Mr. ZUCKER's close Friends in the new year to plan a fitting tribute for him on behalf of the gallery.
"We're shocked and sorry about his passing. He was a true friend of the arts and the art gallery," she said. "He was a very generous contributor, not only to the art gallery but to the theatre and to individuals in the community. He will be missed enormously.
"He's leaving a big void."
Throughout his business career, Mr. ZUCKER supported various Jewish charities, as well as the United Way and fundraising for the Hamilton Place Auditorium.
In 1967, he founded the Irving Zucker Foundation, financed from his business ventures. The foundation established scholarships at McMaster University and has funded the Zucker lecture series at the Michael G. DeGroote School of Business.
In 1999, he endowed McMaster's faculty of health sciences with the Albert Einstein-Irving Zucker Chair in Neuroscience.
"This was a major gift he'd wanted to make to the university, which he had so much respect for," said Dr. Sandra WITELSON, who was named to the chair.
Mr. ZUCKER's $1 million donation was matched by the university.
In 1995, Mr. ZUCKER was inducted into the Hamilton Gallery of Distinction, which honours prominent citizens who have brought credit to the community.
The last time Hamilton Mayor Bob WADE saw Mr. ZUCKER was a couple of months ago. He simply wanted to remind the mayor he was available if help was needed.
"That's the kind of man he was. He wanted to be a part of anything where his contribution could be made," Wade said. "He'll be missed by the community. He has helped the city tremendously."
In 1983, he was appointed to the Economic Council of Canada for three years. Thirteen years later, Sheila COPPS appointed him to the board of the Canada Council for the Arts. He was reappointed in 1999 to serve another three years.
But Mr. ZUCKER was most proud of being named a member of the Order of Canada for his philanthropy by governor-general Romeo LEBLANC in 1997.
He was honoured in 1999 by the Hamilton Health Sciences Foundation for his leadership and commitment to area hospitals.
Mr. ZUCKER didn't limit his generosity to the arts community, said former Hamilton councillor Geraldine COPPS. When she needed his help for Lakeland Pool, he gave generously.
"It wasn't something particularly close to his heart, but if it was good for the community, Mr. ZUCKER would be there."
Stan KEYES, the federal Liberal caucus chair and Hamilton West Member of Parliament, called Mr. ZUCKER a leader and a good friend.
"There will be a void, a huge void, until someone steps up to the plate, but I don't know if anyone will be able to step up and fill the void that Irving has left."
Four years ago, Mr. ZUCKER received an honorary doctor of laws degree from McMaster University.
President Peter GEORGE called Mr. ZUCKER a good friend to the university. "He reached out into so many activities in this community and all of Canada."
Mr. ZUCKER leaves his children Martin, David and Susan ZUCKER- RAKOFF, brother Bernard ZUCKER, sister Faye LEIBTAG and close companion Irene HALE. He had been divorced from his first wife for many years.
