LOVE, Gage Hayward
Surrounded by his loving family, Gage LOVE, cherished and beloved husband of Betty, died at the age of 85 peacefully at home after a brief illness on Friday, September 5th, 2003. Proud and devoted father of Gage, David, Peter and Geoff. Adored by his daughters-in-law, Ann, Patti, Melanie and Mimi; his twelve grandchildren, Austin, Bryce, Melanie, Jennifer, Adrian, Charmian, Colin, Gage, Gaelan, Allie, Kate and Jesse and his three great-granddaughters Ava, Makayla and Olivia. A gifted athlete, he was a competitive swimmer but his real athletic prowess emerged when playing sports with his children and grandchildren. All games overseen by Gage ended in a tie. Among his greatest achievements was a hole in one on the treacherous third hole at Glen Abbey. He was also the self-appointed Commissioner-for-Life of the Westwinds Bootin' League. After graduating from the University of Toronto, he enlisted in the Royal Canadian Naval Reserve. He was a lieutenant (N), Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve in World War Two. Gage led a remarkably successful business life. He was president of the W.J. Gage Company, publisher of that great bestseller, Dick and Jane. When he took over the company, it was a small shop on Spadina Avenue. When he left, the company had moved to Scarborough and was one of Canada's most important printers and publishers. The company recently celebrated its 150th anniversary. He was a chairman of The Toronto Board of Trade and of the Board of St. Andrew's College. Gage was a relentless and passionate philanthropist. He served as chair of The Gage Research Institute, The Ina Grafton Gage Home, Pollution Probe and West Park Hospital. He served on the board of The Boy Scouts, King City United Church, National Sanitarium Association, The Ontario Heart and Stroke Foundation, Toronto Community Foundation, United Way of Greater Toronto and York Central Hospital. He supported a great many other community organizations and charitable causes. The funeral service will be held at Timothy Eaton Memorial Church, 230 St. Clair Avenue West on Tuesday, September 9 at 11 am. Betty and Gage were married in this church 62 years ago. Instead of flowers, a donation to either West Park Health Care Centre or The Ina Grafton Gage Home would be appreciated. Gage and his family have been involved in these two organizations for four generations.

Making the world a better place
Toronto textbook publisher was a tireless community activist, environmentalist and philanthropist
By Randy RAY, Special to The Globe and Mail Thursday, October 30, 2003 - Page R9
From the moment he arose in the morning until it was time to lie down at night, Gage LOVE's goal as a textbook publisher, community activist and philanthropist was to make the world a better place.
"He felt his job on this planet was to make bloody well sure that the Earth was better when he left than when he found it," says son David LOVE of King City, north of Toronto.
To that end, Mr. LOVE gave a piece of himself to so many causes that he was often chided by his wife and accountant for trying to do too much.
"He was a $100 donor to between 100 and 200 charities every year. It used to drive mom crazy," says David LOVE. " His accountant used to say, 'You're giving away too much.' To which dad would reply, 'It's no big deal.' Mr. LOVE, a successful businessman and a relentless and passionate philanthropist, with a broad scope of interests including health care, education and the environment, died at his home in King City on September 5. He was 85.
Born in Toronto on September 17, 1917, Mr. LOVE graduated from the University of Toronto in 1939 with a bachelor's degree in history. While a student he worked at W.J. Gage Publishing, a Toronto company operated since 1880 by his maternal grandfather, Sir William GAGE, and later run by his father Harry LOVE. The company published a variety of textbooks for schools and was also involved in the envelope and stationary business.
"He started out as a stock boy and did most jobs, all part of a plan put in place by his dad to teach his son the ropes," Mr. LOVE says.
In 1941, he married Clara Elizabeth (Betty) FLAVELLE, whom he'd first met when he was four years old and had begun dating in his teens. He enlisted in the Royal Canadian Navy in 1942 and served on Canada's West Coast, ending the war as an officer on a mine sweeper.
After the Second World War he became president of W.J. Gage. When he took over the company, it was a small shop on Spadina Avenue in Toronto; during his presidency, the company in the late 1950s moved to larger and more modern quarters in the Toronto suburb of Scarborough. By the time Mr. LOVE had left, it had become one of Canada's foremost educational book publishers.
With Mr. LOVE at the helm, W.J. Gage, in the mid-1940s, acquired the rights to Dick and Jane, a popular American educational book designed to make reading fun for children, and began publishing it in Canada. But his greatest legacy by far, and one of his proudest achievements, says David LOVE, was A Dictionary of Canadianisms on Historical Principles, which W.J. Gage published as its centennial project in 1967.
It was the first dictionary to publish distinct Canadian words such as "inspectioneer," a whaling word, "suicide squad," from the Canadian Football League, "cradle-hole," a cradle-shaped hole left in the ground when a large tree is overturned by a gale and "keg angel," a whisky trader.
"The introduction to the book made the case that Canadians have quite a vibrant language," said David LOVE, whose first summer job was proofreading the dictionary. "The book contained words from coast to coast that no one else knew about." Faced with stiff American competition, Mr. LOVE in 1971 made the controversial decision to sell 80 per cent of the publishing company's shares, a move that made him unhappy, says his son.
"He was offered government money, but a handout was out of the question because as an old-school businessman, he did not believe the taxpayers of Canada should be made to pay for his company. He felt it should rise or fall on it own merits as a successful business." Six years later, a Canadian company bought it back, much to Mr. LOVE's delight.
After leaving publishing, Mr. LOVE turned his attention to philanthropy, a path also taken by his grandfather, Sir William GAGE, who had endowed many hospitals and charities, and for this work was given a knighthood in 1918.
"Dad used the fruits of what he earned at the publishing company to give back to the community," says David LOVE. "He wanted to make Toronto a better place to live for everybody." Over the years, he served as chair of the Gage Research Institute, which researches tuberculosis, the Ina Grafton Gage Home, an old-age home, and West Park Healthcare Centre, all in Toronto, and was president of the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Toronto. In 1981, he co-founded the Toronto Metropolitan Community Foundation, now the Toronto Community Foundation, which connects potential philanthropists with community needs.
Among his largest donations was $250,000 in June, 2001, to the West Park Healthcare Centre, which was founded by Sir William GAGE in 1904. He was also a regular donor to Pollution Probe and the World Wildlife Fund.
"Seven months after founding Pollution Probe in 1969, we needed advice and help, so we went looking for it from people in the establishment," says Monte HUMMEL, one of the founders of Pollution Probe and now president of World Wildlife Fund. "Gage was one of those. He said, 'You [Pollution Probe] have got something to say and some of us in the business community need a kick in the pants.' He supported us with money, he sat on our board and he appealed to his peers to support Pollution Probe. In those days, that was a really courageous thing for him to do."
Mr. LOVE's sons are carrying on their father's philanthropy and his work in community and environmental affairs. David LOVE has been involved in the not-for-profit sector for 30 years, including 24 years with World Wildlife Fund; Geoff LOVE is a waste-recycling expert who played a significant role in developing Ontario's blue-box recycling program and Peter LOVE is a green-energy expert. A fourth son, Gage, is a teacher.
In addition to his wife and sons, Mr. LOVE leaves grandchildren Austin, Bryce, Melanie, Jennifer, Adrian, Charmian, Colin, Gage, Gaelan, Allie, Kate, Jesse, and great-grandchildren Ava, Makayla and Olivia.
