"MES" 2003 Obituary


MESENSKY o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2003-11-24 published
GAUL, Kevin Joseph
A native son of Australia who embraced Canada as his home at the age of 23, died in Toronto on November 20, 2003, surrounded by his wife, Madeleine, and his children Alison and Philip. Kevin's life was centred in his family, his Friends, his church and his community. His support to his community was life-long. It ranged from his service in the Reserve Army in the Royal Canadian Ordinance Corps component of the Toronto Service Battalion and his leadership of the Metro Toronto Housing Authority to his countless hours of charitable work, in roles such as Director and President of the Credit Counseling Service of Toronto, and a key facilitator of the Employment Resources Group, an outreach project of the Anglican Church. In addition, he consulted on housing and education extensively throughout the Caribbean, an area that was dear to his heart. Twenty- five years ago, when Kevin's illness was first diagnosed, he was expected to live only a few years. However, his love of life and commitment to the people, causes, and things he loved gave him the strength to exceed all expectations. Until almost the end, few understood the severity of his illness, so strong and relentless was his pursuit of life. Dr. Michael BAKER was with Kevin from the initial diagnosis until the last minutes of his life. The family gives their heartfelt thanks for the last 25 years to Michael and his team, and to the Transfusion team at the Princess Margaret Hospital. They also thank Dr. Marcella MESENSKY, our family physician and friend, the Toronto East General Hospital, 2 special paramedics and a compassionate Emergency team at Mount Sinai. Predeceased by his parents, John and Theresa Clair GAUL, Kevin leaves a part of himself in the hearts and minds of all who knew him, especially his beloved family, Madeleine, Alison and Philip, his brothers Tony, Greg (Carol), Brian (Anne) GAUL, his sister-in-law, Judy (Mike) MARLOW, and his uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews, and cousins and Friends here, in Australia, the United Kingdom Fenelon Falls and Coboconk. Visitation will be at Heritage Funeral Centre, 50 Overlea Blvd. (416-423-1000) on Thursday, November 27th from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. Funeral service on Friday November 28th at 11: 00 a.m. at St. Columba and All Hallows Anglican Church, 2723 St. Clair Ave East. In lieu of flowers, donations may sent to the Princess Margaret Hospital Leukemia Research Fund or to St. Columba and All Hallows Anglican Church, Toronto.
''And now we see as through a glass darkly, but then we shall see face to face.''

-In loving memory of Lois Lynn, May 18, 1967 to November 20, 2001.
To touch our lives God did send
A daughter, wife, mother, sister, aunt
They took her back when time was good,
A fact that's still misunderstood.
We miss her smile, her laugh, her ways.
The heartache stronger with passing days
But we know the promise made
For our lives a price was paid.
So when our time on earth does end
This daughter, wife, mother, sister, aunt
Will be ours to hold again.
-Love you forever, Mom, Peter and Dimitri, Cecile, Kevin and Chantale
