MONETTE o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2003-10-16 published
Father figure to the Canadian stage
British-trained Stratford character actor never craved starring roles
By Allison LAWLOR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Thursday, October 16, 2003 - Page R11
For Mervyn " Butch" BLAKE, entering a theatre was a magical experience, something he never tired of during an acting career that spanned close to three-quarters of a century. Mr. BLAKE, one of the most loved members of the Stratford Festival Company, died on October 9 at a Toronto nursing home after a long illness. He was 95.
"Theatre seems to give me life," Mr. BLAKE said in 1994. "I just feel marvellous when I enter the theatre... it's one of the things which keeps me going."
Over his long stage life that included 42 consecutive seasons with the Stratford Festival of Canada, Mr. BLAKE "had the distinction of playing in every single play of Shakespeare's," said Richard MONETTE, Stratford's artistic director.
"He had a great life in the theatre," Mr. MONETTE said.
Adored by both audiences and fellow actors, the veteran actor was known across Canada for his enormous talent and generosity of spirit. When he wasn't working at Stratford, he acted on the country's major stages and in television and film.
For seven seasons, he toured with the Canadian Players, bringing professional theatre to smaller towns. And in 1987, he won a Dora Mavor Moore Award for best performance in a featured role in a production of Saturday, Sunday, Monday at what was then called CentreStage (now CanStage).
"Everyone loved Butch without exception," said John NEVILLE, a former Stratford's artistic director.
Mervyn BLAKE was born on November 30, 1907, in Dehra Dun, India, where his father was a railway executive.
His father wanted him to become an engineer but after falling in love with the theatre, Mr. BLAKE was able to persuade his father to allow him to study at London's Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. In 1932, he graduated and soon made his professional stage debut at the Embassy Theatre in London
During the Second World War, he served in the British Army as a driver. It was during the war years that he is said to have got his nickname Butch. A witness to the horrors of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, Mr. BLAKE was present at the liberation of the camp by British troops. It was an experience that haunted him for the rest of his life.
At the war's end, he returned to England and to the stage. He married actress Christine BENNETT and spent the years between 1952 and 1955 at the Shakespeare Memorial Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon. There he worked with many of the great British actors such as Sir Laurence OLIVIER, Sir Michael REDGRAVE and Dame Peggy ASHCROFT.
Despite his success on the British stage, he decided to join the Stratford Festival of Canada, then in its fifth season. With his family in tow, Mr. BLAKE moved to Canada and in 1957 appeared in a production of Hamlet with Christopher PLUMMER in the title role.
"He wasn't a leading actor," said actor and director Douglas CAMPBELL. "He was a supporting player. As a supporting player you couldn't get better."
Mr. BLAKE always saw himself as a character actor who never cared that much about starring roles, said Audrey ASHLEY, a former Ottawa Citizen theatre critic and author of Mr. BLAKE's 1999 biography With Love from Butch.
"He was one of those actors you never had to worry about," Ms. ASHLEY said. "You knew Butch was always going to do a good job."
Known for his unfailing good nature and even temper, he enjoyed re-telling gaffes he had made on stage. Mr. MONETTE remembers one performance where Mr. BLAKE appeared on stage as the Sea Captain in Twelfth Night. The character Viola asks him, "What country, Friends, is this?" And instead of responding "This is Illyria, lady." Out of his mouth popped, "This is Orillia."
To the younger actors at Stratford, Mr. BLAKE was a father figure. "He was very fond of the young actors and would take them under his wing," Ms. ASHLEY said.
Stephen RUSSELL remembers arriving at Stratford for his first season in the mid-1970s. He was placed in the same dressing room as Mr. BLAKE, an experience he still holds close to his heart.
"He was one of the most generous human beings," Mr. RUSSELL said.
One of the areas Mr. BLAKE was most helpful in was teaching fellow actors how to apply stage makeup. He loved makeup and on his dressing-room table he had an old rabbit's foot that he would use to apply his face powder, Mr. RUSSELL said.
Aging didn't stop him from applying his own elaborate makeup. Playing the role of old Adam in As You Like It required him to go through the same makeup ritual when he was 70 years old as it did when he performed the role years earlier as a much younger man.
Aside from the stage, one of Mr. BLAKE's passions was cricket. During his first season in Stratford, he played on the festival's team and was responsible for starting a friendly, annual cricket match against the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
Each season, members of the two acting companies would come together for a civilized afternoon of cricket and tea. The Stratford team still goes by the name of Blake's Blokes.
In honour of his talent and dedication to the theatre, Mr. BLAKE was appointed a member of the Order of Canada in May, 1995.
"When he entered, the stage just lit up," Mr. RUSSELL said.
Mr. BLAKE leaves his wife Christine BENNETT; children Andrew and Bridget; and stepson Tim DAVISSON.
Details of a memorial service to be held in Stratford, Ontario, have yet to be announced.

Lily NIHMEY
By John NIHMEY Friday, September 26, 2003 - Page A28
Mother, entrepreneur. Born July 15, 1914, in Ottawa. Died September 4 in Ottawa of natural causes, aged 89.
She was born Lily MONSOUR, the first child of Lebanese immigrants. Her father peddled, an occupation shared by Lebanese and Jewish immigrants trying hard to make a living in a new land. An opportunity to open a store in Mattawa arose and the family moved; nine-year-old Lily stayed behind with the great-uncle and aunt who had sponsored her parents into Canada. She helped in their downtown business, translated letters from Lebanon, and attended school. The decision, made out of family obligation, gave Lily an early taste of responsibility. She missed her parents and siblings desperately. When her sister, Mary, moved to Ottawa to attend school, Lily was overjoyed. Her happiness turned to devastation, though, when Mary collapsed at her desk and died at the age of 16.
Lily graduated from a business college and worked for a short time in the federal government. She met Philip NIHMEY, a Lebanese immigrant who had experienced his share of hard knocks, including the death of both parents before his 15th birthday. Philip fell madly for Lily, who at 28 thought her eligible years were numbered. They married and started a family; in seven years it would grow to five sons.
In 1956, Phil and Lily opened one of Ottawa's first diners, Phil's Restaurant. Graced with chrome stools, tube lighting, and jukeboxes, it was a smash success. The family moved to a two-storey house in the suburbs. The achievement for Phil, who once shined shoes for a living, and Lily, who had worked hard to give her husband the confidence to succeed, was enormous.
Five years later, Phil died of a stroke at the age of 51. Lily picked herself up to keep the business going and support her five sons, now ranging in age from 9 to 15. She sold their "dream" house and bought one closer to the business. She smiled behind the counter 14 hours a day, then cried over the tea her sons would prepare for her each night. As the neighbourhood became tough, Lily became tougher, teaching her "boys" right from wrong, educating us through her toil, and guiding us away from the trouble we witnessed every day. As for faith, she always said, "I don't have time to go to church but God is on my side. But you boys have to go." And we did.
Lily found solace in her work and treated her customers with equal justice. She doled out uneven quantities of home-cooked food for the same price; it depended on how much you could eat. She chastised grown men for not finishing their meals, shamed neglectful mothers into taking responsibility, and ordered dropouts back to school. She once told a motorcyclist to go home and shave, that he was too good-looking to cover his face.
Lily retired in 1976. Her children remained close throughout her senior years, taking her on trips and congregating at her home for Sunday dinner. When she turned 75, we hosted a surprise party with 100 guests. It was a grand occasion, highlighted by her granddaughter singing her favourite song, The Wind Beneath My Wings. A few years later, we took her on a cruise to Hawaii, the one place she had always wanted to go.
A prominent European hotelier once told me that my mother was what class was all about. In his circle, he said, everyone equated their own or others' class by manners and material goods. He said my mother embodied characteristics to which these people could only aspire: contentment with her life, pride in her family, and modesty in her accomplishments.
Our mother never quite had the sense of self-worth that this man attributed to her. Perhaps resulting from the loss of her childhood years, Lily never thought she had class, nor beauty. While we argued this with her, we also knew that these attributes were unimportant to her.
John is Lily's son.

MONTAGUE, John Hastings
It is with deep regret that John's family announce that he suffered a heavy stroke at the end of June and after a brave fight, died 4 weeks later on July 24th 2003, just after his 78th birthday. He resided in Reading England and his funeral was held there on the 31st of July 2003. John was born in Winnipeg in 1925. His parents were Furry Ferguson MONTAGUE and Margaret (HASTINGS) MONTAGUE. John was an exceptionally talented student. He attended the University of Manitoba and graduated from there in 1946 with Honours. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Chicago in 1950. At Chicago he became familiar with the operations of the Van de Graaff, a medium powered accelerator used for nuclear structure studies, and when he left Chicago he was employed for two years by Atomic Energy of Canada at Chalk River attached to the Van de Graaff group in the Nuclear Physics Division. In 1952-54 John was employed by Associated Electrical Industries as Research Physicist at their research laboratory in Aldermaston, England where he worked on spectroscopy of plasmas. In 1954-55 he was back in Canada as a Lecturer in Physics at Queens University, in Kingston. In 1955-66 he worked for the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority, at their Harwell Laboratory as a member of the High Voltage Group on nuclear structure studies. During this time he was given study leave in 1964-65 at Kellogg Radiation Laboratory, an institution associated with the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena California.. In 1966-71 John was again at Queens University as Professor of Physics; and Director and Principal Investigator for Queen's Nuclear Physics Laboratory. As such John played a major role in the development of Queen's reputation as a venue which would attract postgraduates seeking a career in nuclear physics. In addition to his other responsibilities he supervised the installation of the Van de Graaff located at Queen's. From 1971 until his retirement in 1990 John was again employed by the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority holding various posts related to marketing and strategy development, an important role at a time when the British Government was seeking to make the Atomic Energy Authority more self reliant. In his retirement he showed the same energy and professionalism that he had shown throughout his career. He became involved with the Royal Society of Arts and assisted them in organising a number of conferences. His hobbies included gardening, calligraphy, bookbinding, astronomy, the collection of interesting clocks, and photography. His handmade Xmas cards are treasured by those that received them. He read widely and had an extraordinary memory. Conversations with him knew no bounds. He leaves behind his wife Jeanne, his sons William and Ray and their wives Shelley and Heather, his grandchildren: Kira, Mark, William, Oliver, Maria and Leonard, and his brother George and nephews Michael and Price. He loved them all and they will miss him.

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.

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. His pallbearers will be Jeffrey BRAUN, Wayne HEKLE, Philippe GUERTIN, Jason ORZECHOWSKI, Todd ORZECHOWSKI and Jack SMYTH.
