ANSPACH, Herbert Kephart
Born in Ada, Ohio on September 3, 1926, died in Toronto, Ontario on November 22, 2003. Herb was a man of character who exemplified integrity, fairness, hard work, lifelong learning, and who made a remarkable impact on the world and people around him. He was a business leader in the U.S. and Canada, a patriotic citizen and supporter of the communities in which he lived, a dedicated husband, a good-humoured friend to many, and an inspirational father, grandfather, and father-in-law. His intelligence and hard work earned him an Engineering Degree from University of Wisconsin, a Law Degree from University of Michigan, many scholarships and academic awards, and a productive career from GoodYear to the U.S. Patent Office to Whirlpool, where he was a Patent Lawyer, Vice-President of Personnel, subsidiary President (Inglis, Toronto), and ultimately President of Whirlpool Corporation of St. Joseph, Michigan. He was successful in his work, inspirational in his coaching of all those he took under his wing, and generous with his wisdom and counsel to many through his profession, educational endeavours, and personal life. In his retirement years, Herb and his wife, Elizabeth, resided in Boca Raton, Florida while he continued to remain active in international business consulting, investing, Pro-Am Golf Tournaments, betting on every sports play-off, and keeping in touch with his family and Friends. Upon his illness in 1999, he moved to Toronto, Ontario with his wife, both under the care of their daughter, Heather Anspach FRASER. Here, he spent his valuable final years with his wife Elizabeth, granddaughter Ceilidh, and son-in-law Neil FRASER. A special thanks to those who have made his last years a rich and wonderful experience, from the folks at Baycrest Hospital (particularly Dr. Morris FREEDMAN,) the caring staff of the Bradgate Arms (guided by Stephanie REGENT,) the incredible team at Sunnybrook who made his last days comfortable (led by Dr. Robert FOWLER,) and the loving caretakers who stayed by his side until the end (Cecilia, Angie, Cora, Janet, Anna and Asher). Herb touched many lives in many places around the world. He leaves many who will miss him dearly but will remain inspired by his character for the rest of their lives. Private memorial services will be held in Toronto and in the U.S. Contributions will be accepted for the Herbert and Elizabeth Anspach Family Foundation, a charitable learning foundation established by their daughter to advance education and medical research. Those wishing to contact the family may do so through the Humphrey Funeral Home A. W. Miles Chapel, Toronto (1-800-616-3311).

SCOTT, Lewis Clayton - August 16, 1909 - September 17, 2003
Died peacefully at Southlake Village Nursing Home, age 94, after a full and distinguished life as a sportsman. In an era when shooting, fishing, hunting and riding were the epitome of sportsmanship, Scott excelled at all.
Born on August 16, 1909 in Vermillion, South Dakota, Lew came to Toronto at an early age with his family. One of his first employers was the Toronto Carpet Company (where he met his future wife Alice PARKER.) He then moved on to the brokerage business with Barrett Sye and Co. as well as in the Toronto Grain Exchange. He established L.C. Scott Construction Company in the 1940's which operated in Canada, the United States and England. After World War 2, the company built a large number of schools and hospitals in Southern Ontario as well as some of the post war homes that were built in New Toronto and North York.
Lew had a lifelong passion for horses. During a family stint in California when he was a youngster, he first galloped racehorses at Hollywood Park and when he grew too big, switched to exercising polo ponies. After his business career was established, he acquired property in Markham - Wyndstone Farm - from which he bred and raised thoroughbred racehorses, steeplechasers and sport horses as well as bird dogs and prize- winning Shorthorn cattle.
Lew was an equestrian sportsman of international stature. He competed in steeplechasing and timber racing in Canada and the United States winning a number of prestigious trophies including the Prince of Wales trophy three times. He played polo in Canada, the United States, England and Barbados and competed at horse shows across Ontario. He was a keen foxhunter and served as the whipper-in for the Toronto and North York Hunt for 20 years prior to becoming a Master of Foxhounds in 1972, a position he held until 1990.
He raised bird dogs and competed with them all over North America in the 40's and the 50's. He was a top fly fisherman and enjoyed duck and pheasant hunting. Both he and his wife Alice were crack shots and long time members of the Toronto Gun Club. As a young man, he was a member of the Argonaut Rowing Club.
At one time, a member or director of the Toronto and North York Hunt, the Canadian Hunter Society, the Canadian Equestrian Team, the Canadian Thoroughbred Horse Society, the Toronto Polo Club and several U.S. polo clubs, the Cowdray Polo Club, United Kingdom Canadian director of the Master of Foxhounds Association of America, the Goodwood Club and the Argonaut Rowing Club. He was also an accomplished pilot who loved flying and had owned several planes.
In 1989, after 54 years of marriage, he lost his beloved wife Alice whose charm, hospitality and hard work was the foundation of the family and the basis which allowed Lew's energetic pursuit of his interests.
Predeceased also by his only son Lewis Christian (Skipper). Leaves daughters Alice FERRIER (Glen) and Susan Jane ANSTEY (Michael VAN EVERY,) granddaughters Jennifer ANSTEY, Elizabeth TRACEY, Janet Louise GAYFORD, Mary FRALEIGH and Margaret Ann SPROULE. Great grandchildren Owen TRACEY, Will FRALEIGH, Jamie FRALEIGH and Tom FRALEIGH.
He will be remembered for his enthusiasm, toughness, loyalty and keen interest in the people and things around him.
If desired, donations in his memory may be made to Think First Canada (for injury prevention in sports and recreation), Med-West Medical Centre, Suite 2-227, 750 Dundas St. West, Toronto, Ontario M6J 3S3 or to the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair Endowment Fund.
A Private family service was held. Arrangements entrusted to the Thompson Funeral Home, 29 Victoria Street, Aurora (905-727-5421).
