The Unending Symphony
Time speeds on, four years have passed
Since death its gloom, its shadow cast
Within our home where all seemed bright,
And took from us a shining light.
We miss that light, and ever will,
His vacant place there's none to fill.
Down here we mourn, but not in vain,
For up in Heaven we'll meet again.
--Loving you always,
Eleanor and family

Robert TROW
By Ann SILVERSIDES Wednesday, April 2, 2003 - Page A20
Gay liberation and A.I.D.S. activist, health-care worker, musician. Born November 23, 1948, in Toronto. Died October 21, 2002, in Toronto, of a brain aneurysm, aged 53.
The last time I saw Robert, he was bicycling north on Church Street near Queen Street in Toronto, heading to a meeting. Though he was running late, he graciously stopped to answer some questions I'd been meaning to ask him about the history of Hassle Free Clinic, the downtown Toronto sexual health clinic where he spent 26 years, first as a volunteer and later as a long-time staff member. A few weeks later, Robert was dead, and Canada lost a knowledgeable, tireless Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome activist who had kept up his activism until the day he died.
About 400 people attended his memorial service at Hart House Theatre at the University of Toronto. As an undergraduate, Robert had performed in that theatre, and he remained a member of Hart House long after completing two University of Toronto graduate degrees.
He grew up in Thornhill, Ontario, the eldest of three boys. His father was an engineer, and his mother a homemaker. Playing piano, which he took up as a child, was a lifelong passion.
Many gay men are rejected by, or alienated from, their original family; their gay Friends become their family. Robert was lucky: he maintained close ties with parents, brothers and extended family, and kept up with both (heterosexual) best Friends from high school and a large family of gay Friends.
In the mid-1970s, Robert began working and living communally. He volunteered on the collective that ran The Body Politic, a left-wing gay liberation newsmagazine published in Canada but with a worldwide readership. He wrote articles, mostly about health-care issues, edited, proofread and did paste-up -- but also took on the thankless task of distribution manager. He lived in a series of communal houses with his former long-time partner, writer Gerald HANNON, and other Body Politic collective members.
To his Friends, Robert was known as Bunny, and his foibles -- dithering, an aversion to drafts, a highly developed sense of personal frugality, a propensity to lose his wallet, a talent for being, as Gerald noted, sprawlingly messy -- were more than offset by his generosity to all and his wicked sense of fun.
When Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome emerged in the early 1980s, Robert helped organize the first public Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome forum in Toronto on April 5, 1983, which was sponsored by Hassle Free and Gays in Health Care. He went on to be a founding member of the Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome Committee of Toronto. After a test for Human Immunodeficiency Virus was developed, Hassle Free became the first clinic in Canada to offer anonymous testing. When anonymous testing was eventually legalized in Ontario, the government adopted Robert's manual on anonymous testing guidelines.
Robert served on the Ontario Advisory Committee on Human Immunodeficiency Virus/Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome and other bodies. "But first of all, he was passionate about Hassle Free Clinic. He wouldn't take on anything that wasn't also good for the clinic," said Jane GREER/GRIER, his co-worker at the clinic. All the while, Robert was Human Immunodeficiency Virus positive and coping with the effects of his condition and medications.
The Ontario Ministry of Health awarded him a posthumous citation, and Toronto City Council observed a moment's silence in his honour. Silence was an odd tribute, Gerald noted -- because Robert almost never stopped talking, whether it was his "up-to-date" gossip about the Hapsburgs or the Holy Roman Empire, or his appreciative "Oh, boy!" when one of his Friends served him dinner.
Robert is survived by his partner, Denis FONTAINE, his parents Bill and Lucie, his brothers Philip and Christopher, and his wide family of Friends.
Ann SILVERSIDES is a friend of Robert TROW.

Jim and his wife Simone (née GUERTIN) celebrated their 36th wedding anniversary on September 2nd of this year. She and their children, Kristina BRAUN, Lasha ORZECHOWSKI and son-in-law Jeffrey BRAUN now have a huge void in their lives. Jim was such a presence passionate, loving, generous to a fault, intelligent, funny, fun to be with and demanding of himself and those he cared about. He was the most positive and optimistic man. We love him and miss him so much, husband, father and friend. Jim was the youngest of four sons born to Lawrence and Anastasia (HRYBOK) ORZECHOWSKI. He is survived by his oldest brother Nick (Rose) and a large loving family of nieces, nephews, brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law. Jim and Simone's son Demion died on April 14, 1998. Jim's father Lawrence, mother Anastasia, brother Alexander, brother Peter, mother-in-law Marie-Louise GUERTIN and father-in-law Tony Sr. (Antoine) GUERTIN have all predeceased him. Jim enjoyed a demanding and fulfilling career as an Architect. He was the Chief Executive Officer of Smith Carter Architects and Engineers Inc. when he died. He joined Smith Carter in June of 1970, was elected to the Associate Group in 1973 and became a partner in 1974. Over the years there have been a number of articles in the press outlining the achievements of Smith Carter. With vision and forward thinking all of the dedicated people in this firm have come to enjoy a pre-eminent role in not only Manitoba, but nationally and internationally as well. Family, Friends and colleagues have all heard from Jim at one time or another: ...
Do your homework...
Take the high road...
Work hard and smart...
Enjoy whatever you do.
Jim loved Winnipeg and Manitoba. Underrated - Central - Safe - Caring -Affordable - Four beautiful distinct seasons. And so he felt a need to promote and nurture this wonderful community. He served as a volunteer member on many of this city's boards - educational, cultural, professional, health and civic. Due to Jim's strong respect for the Art of Architecture and the inherent discipline, he was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada and inducted as a member to the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts. This recognition by his peer group allowed him a quiet and appreciative pride. Jim, as many people know, enjoyed breeding and showing Newfoundland dogs - just having animals, horses, dogs, cats - planting trees - working outdoors. He was an expert skier, strived to be a better sailor, was frustrated with his golf game, loved our fifth-wheel and all the opportunity that it represented for fun in the sun. His funeral service will be held at St. Ignatius Church, southwest corner of Corydon and Stafford, Thursday November 20 at 12: 00 p.m. with Father Peter MONTY, S.J. officiating.
