Stephen CSATARI
By Avery GUTHRIE, Susan CSATARI and Andrea CSATARI Tuesday, April 15, 2003 - Page A18
Son, brother, grand_son, avid reader, university student. Born September 14, 1981, in Mississauga. Died April 6, 2002, in Herstmonceux, Sussex, England, of a rare heart disorder, age 20.
The first thing most people noticed about Stephen was his height: 6 foot 8.
His rapid growth gave him a tendency to get tripped up by his own feet, often resulting in fairly spectacular falls and a constant awareness that door frames, light fixtures and, in one hilarious instance, a cowbell suspended from a beam, did not accommodate the free movement of someone of his stature.
His father, a manager at a computer consulting firm, and his mother, a nurse, were often told about Stephen's ability to absorb knowledge. His childhood babysitter clearly remembers him at age 5, happily reading the newspaper and telling her all about the day's big stories. Before he was 10 he'd gone through C. S. Lewis's Narnia chronicles and P. G. Wodehouse; he went on to history, biographies and novels by Michael Ondaatje, Stephen Fry and Kazuo Ishiguro.
His sister, Andrea, 22 months his junior, had little motivation to speak as a young child; she merely had to point and grunt, and Stephen would cheerfully communicate her desires to any adults at hand. A fine mimic -- Stephen did John CLEESE as Basil Fawlty he had an impeccable sense of comic timing. He also used his superior size to great advantage. He would sweep his girlfriend, Avery, off her feet and hold her upside-down (despite her protests). Grabbing Mum or Grandma for an unexpected polka around the kitchen was another favourite tactic of domestic disruption.
Stephen met Avery in Grade 7; they started dating in high school. At age 17, Stephen entered Queen's University to study history, a life-long passion he shared with his father.
He took courses in the Second World War, British, military, Russian and Chinese history, consistently placing at or near the top of his classes. His professors encouraged him to become an academic they told us his polite, understated way of sharing knowledge also won him much respect.
In 2002, Stephen and Avery went to study at Queen's International Study Centre at Herstmonceux Castle in Sussex, England, and enjoyed field trips to historical sites in Britain, France and Belgium (his fellow students nicknamed Stephen "tour guide" because of his store of knowledge).
On a sunny spring day in the last week of term, he went for a run along his favourite country lane, past hedgerows, an ancient church, and grazing sheep. The exertion triggered a severe rhythm disturbance of his heart, a rare hereditary problem of which he was unaware. Stephen collapsed. A local landowner, Rieke SCHWEITZER, grandnephew of Albert SCHWEITZER, found him and called the police.
Now that his family knows about what killed him -- arrythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia -- we are being closely monitored. In death, Stephen has been able to watch out for those he loved.
Stephen was intrigued by Churchill and Kennedy; he told Avery that they had accomplished more by age 20 than he, and worried that, if he were to die, no one would notice. Avery spoke of this at the funeral, which was attended by hundreds of Friends, family and teachers. They gave Stephen a standing ovation.
His potential will never be realized. But he is remembered for his intelligence and wit, for his generosity and loving nature. Mr. SCHWEITZER has placed a stone marker on the lane where Stephen fell.
Avery is Stephen's girlfriend, Susan and Andrea his mother and sister.

Constance Patricia YOUNG
By Mary Patricia Young LECKIE
Mary Young LECKIE is Connie's daughter. Wednesday, May 21, 2003 - Page A20
Lieutenant, army medical corps; nurse, mother. Born August 9, 1911, in Worthing, England. Died February 22 in Toronto, of cancer, aged 91.
If a movie were to be made of Connie's life, it would be an epic. Born Constance Patricia BOND in a sleepy, seaside English town, her family moved to Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 1914. Her father Charles was a man of great ambition who traversed the Maritimes vending cash registers, while mother Blanche managed the staff. On December 6, 1917, their world came apart when the Mont Blanc collided with the Imo in Halifax Harbour, creating the largest explosion in pre-atomic history. Connie, in class at the Sacred Heart Convent, was blown onto the floor. Her brother Courtney made his way to Citadel Hill to fight the Germans he assumed had invaded the city. Charles, stranded in Saint John's, waited five excruciating days until word came that all of his "Victory Bonds" had survived.
For many Canadians, the end of the First World War war was the beginning of the most difficult time in that century. Charles moved the family to Toronto to begin anew. But the glory days of wartime prosperity gave way to a tumbling economy that crushed the ambitions, will and finally life out of Connie's beloved father. Connie dreamed of returning to Sacred Heart to take her vows as a nun but as she was by then a nurse, she was the only employed member of her family. Connie stayed to support her mother whose income would never again keep pace with her desires.
As her siblings found employment, Connie began to yearn for adventure. Once a shrinking violet, she longed to break free. The opportunity came: the Second World War was declared and Connie enlisted. In basic training at Camp Borden she met Lily CLEGG, an irreverent counterpoint who taught her the fine art of having fun. Combat field-training came next, then they were bound for England. Also aboard were the men of Essex Regiment, fellow recruits and Friends. It was Connie's great sorrow to receive those boys back in England when a pitiful handful of survivors returned from Dieppe.
General Hospital in Sussex was a safe refuge but Connie wanted more and in 1944 she got it when she and Lily embarked for France. In the early hours of D-Day-plus-four, they were among the first Canadian nurses to set foot on Juno Beach. They followed the action through France, Belgium and the Netherlands.
Connie celebrated Victory-in-Europe Day in Trafalgar Square. After decommissioning, she returned to Toronto to discover that the pay she had sent home had been squandered by her mother. So once again, she started over, studying Public Health at the University of Toronto; she practised as a public health nurse until 1954.
An unexpected whirlwind courtship was followed by marriage to Roy YOUNG, a widower with a son. Then, at the age of 45, Connie gave birth to a daughter.
Even in retirement in Omemee, Ontario, Connie continued to touch lives: administering meds, bandaging sprains and dispensing love and humour to all. She never lost her zest for life and in her 70s, Connie drove a fishing boat to town for supplies and in winter, a snowmobile to visit shut-ins. And she tended the ever-present live-in, Blanche, until her mother died in 1981.
Widowed at 89, Connie was soon after diagnosed with cancer. She moved to Toronto to be close to her children and was blessed with another two years. After a fall, Connie, wheelchair bound, almost gave up. Then the family discovered her old friend Lily was alive in a Toronto nursing home. The two were reunited and shared a month of memories. But on Christmas morning, Lily died and two months later, cancer took Connie.
Constance Patricia was a remarkable woman. For those she touched she will never die. Her spirit is irrepressible.

DUNSMUIR, James Smith
