PICK, Archibald Roy (Archie)
After a long courageous battle with pancreatic cancer, Archie PICK died peacefully on August 23, 2003. His wife, Jeannie, was at his side.
Archie was born August 18, 1938, in a log cabin in Red Lake, Ontario. He moved to Winnipeg with his parents in 1941. He attended public schools in Winnipeg, Rathwell and Notre Dame de Lourdes, Manitoba.
He was preceded in death by his first wife, Marcia, brother, Leonard, sister, Barbara and father William. Archie is survived by his loving wife, Jeannie, his mother Mary, son David (Christine McCREADY,) daughters: Kirsten Ann GAUCHER (John) and Jennifer Marie SANCHEZ (Christopher) and grand_son Jacob GAUCHER. Archie was very proud of his family and loved them all dearly.
Archie attended the University of Manitoba and the University of North Dakota. He received his B.S. in Civil Engineering (1962) and M.S. in Civil Engineering (1966). Archie started his professional career with the Structural Division of Manitoba Hydro in 1962, and after receiving his Master's degree in 1966, he joined the Metropolitan Corporation in Greater Winnipeg (City of Winnipeg) in the Waterworks and Waste Division. In 1973, Archie moved with his family to Edmonton to join the newly formed Environment Canada as head of Water Pollution Control for the Western Region (Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, Northwest Territories). In 1976, he was appointed Chief, Environmental Conservation Branch, Western Region, Environment Canada. Subsequently, he left Public Service and joined the consulting engineering firm of James F. MacLaren Limited as General Manager of Western Canadian Operations (Alberta, Saskatchewan, Northwest Territories, Yukon). One of the highlights of this position was acting as Project Manager for the clean-up and recovery of the Russian Cosmos satellite which crashed in the Northwest Territory in the region of Great Slave Lake. In 1980, Archie became the Executive Vice President of MacLaren Plansearch, division of Lavalin. In 1982, he joined Interprovincial Pipe Line Limited (Enbridge, Inc.) and was appointed as Manager, Design and Construction, for the Norman Wells Pipeline Project, drawing on his experience in the north, engineering, and environment. The successful completion of this project was clearly the highlight of his career. His career at Interprovincial Pipe Line involved him in the company's endeavours in Canada, U.S.A., Mexico, Venezuela and Ecuador. He retired in 1998 as a result of health concerns.
At various times, Archie taught as a part time professor in the faculty of Engineering at the University of Manitoba and the University of Alberta. During his working career, he had been registered as a Professional Engineer in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and the Northwest Territory. He was a Life Member of the Association of Professional Engineers, Geologists, and Geophysicists.
Archie, along with Marcia and his children, was an avid skier and was involved with Alpine Ski Racing throughout most of his adult life. He was a Life Member of the Edmonton Snow Valley Ski Club; a senior official of the Alberta Alpine Division of the Canadian Ski Association; served as North Zone Chairman for Canadian Ski Association-Alpine Division; was a long time member of the Edmonton Superbowl Ski team.
Archie and Jeannie were married in 1993 and lived in Edmonton until Archie's retirement in 1998. Since then they have divided their time between their cottage at Clear Lake and their home on Vancouver Island, enjoying family, Friends, and time together.
A bright, shining, steady light has gone from our lives, but will remain in our hearts forever. A memorial service was conducted in Erickson, Manitoba and another memorial service will be held on Sunday, October 19, 2003, at 2: 00 p.m. in the Knox United Church, Parksville, British Columbia.
In lieu of flowers, memoriam to Canadian Diabetes Association, Heart and Stroke Foundation or Cancer Research.

SAVAGE, Roy John
Born London, England February 2, 1939, died September 26, 2003 in Toronto after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Roy is survived by his wife Lesley KIRK, daughter Katherine (and her mother Annette,) sister Patricia KAELBLE and nephew David PATEL (and Lara,) and stepdaughters Amanda CLYNE and Sarah CLYNE- SANCHEZ (and Jose Luis SANCHEZ,) and granddaughter Avila.
Roy spent his entire career in the telecommunication industry, first in England and then in Canada with C.N. Telecommunications and its successor companies, retiring from A.T.&T. Canada in December 1999. Roy will be remembered as a strong leader, a complex problem-solver and a generous friend and mentor.
Throughout his life, Roy applied his signature zeal in taking on new challenges. He was a life-long learner who proved he could excel at anything he put his mind to: from flying planes, playing drums or target shooting to fly fishing, rebuilding car engines or computer programming. His humour and energetic spirit will be greatly missed.
The family would like to give special thanks to the staff of the Palliative Care Ward at Toronto Grace Hospital for their professionalism, their compassion and their support for both Roy and the family during Roy's last weeks. Friends wishing to honor Roy's memory are asked to make a donation to the Palliative Care Ward of the Toronto Grace Hospital (416-925-2251).

Andres KRAMER 1908-2003
Andres KRAMER (Andy to all his Friends,) came to Canada at the age of 18. Andy was born in Sonderburg, Denmark, December 14, 1908. Settled in Toronto, was employed by the Robt. Swipson Co. as a radio technician also doing house calls in the evenings. He met Walter BENNETT, soon to become his brother-in-law. Andy married Marguerite Jane BENNETT (Daisey to all her Friends,) in 1934 at South Baymouth, where Daisy was born. Wedding took place at Huron Lodge. They went to Denmark on their honeymoon, taking their car with them.
About ten years later they moved to New York, where Andy was employed by the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation). The time they spent there was very enjoyable. Later they returned to Toronto. Andy attended the University of Toronto and graduated with honours as an electrical engineer. They returned to the USA and settled in Stanford County where Andy was employed by Audio Magnetics manufacturing recording tape. Their vacations were always returning to Manitoulin Island. Later they moved back to Toronto where Andy founded Kramer Magnetics 1963, manufacturing various types of recording tape. He engineered and built all the equipment personally. Eric STILLWAUGH, his great nephew was one of his first employees and remained with him until Kramer Magnetics was sold in 1971 after about 10 years of operation. They moved to South Baymouth, built a home and retired, only to start another home on South Bay waterfront, along with a hangar where he proceeded to build a home-built Mustang float plane. Andy had previously obtained his pilot's licence. The government inspector said it was the best plane he ever checked out. Daisey, Andy's wife passed away in May 1986. In 1994, he sold his house in South Baymouth and settled in a retirement home in Goderich. Andy eventually due to eye failure was not able to drive his car. However, his two nieces Joyce McDONALD and Lena SAUDERS taxied him when necessary. Andy passed away peacefully at Huronview Rest Home in Clinton, Ontario after spending eight years in Goderich Place. He is survived by Erling ANDERSON and Jutta KRAMER, Joyce McDONALD, Lena SANDERS, Helen McQUAT, Georgina STILLWAUGH, Kenneth BENNETT, and many nieces and nephews. He also had two nephews, Gerald LEHMAN and Haus KRAMER, both deceased. Andy also had one sister, Missa KRAMER (deceased.)

'Galloping Ghost' of Canadian football made five halls of fame
By Randy RAY, Special to The Globe and Mail Friday, December 12, 2003 - Page R17
Ottawa -- If Gordon PERRY had one regret following his illustrious career in Canadian sports, it's that he never competed as a sprinter in the Olympics.
A glance at the Moncton native's résumé clearly shows why he never ran for Canada at the Games: He didn't have time.
Mr. PERRY, who died in Ottawa on September 18 at the age of 100, competed successfully in seven sports. His extraordinary feats earned him a place in five Canadian sports halls of fame: Canadian Football Hall of Fame, Canadian Sports Hall of Fame, Quebec Sports Hall of Fame, New Brunswick Sports Hall of Fame and Ottawa Sports Hall of Fame.
Friends and colleagues have compared him to Canada's Lionel CONACHER, who played hockey and football, and American Deion SANDERS who was both a baseball and football player. Mr. PERRY, however, excelled in football, baseball, hockey, boxing, track and field, curling and swimming.
As a kid, "all he ever wanted to do was play sports," says his son Gordon PERRY Jr. of Ottawa. "It seemed like he always had a baseball glove on his hand or skates on his feet. And he could run like a deer." Born of Welsh ancestry in Moncton on March 18, 1903, Mr. PERRY went to school in Moncton and Quebec City. His father Harry, was a composer and musician who played the organ at a church in Quebec City.
Mr. PERRY, who began his working career in banking and stocks in Carleton Place, Ontario, boxed as an amateur in Quebec City and was a goaltender in the Bankers' Hockey League, a highly competitive loop in the 1920s and '30s that played at the Montreal Forum. As a sprinter, Mr. PERRY posted times of 10 seconds and under for 100 yards.
But he's best known for his role as captain of the undefeated Montreal Amateur Athletic Association Winged Wheelers that beat the Regina Roughriders 22-0 in the 1931 Grey Cup game. Small and quick, and standing at just at five foot eight and 165 pounds, PERRY was nicknamed the "Galloping Ghost" because of his elusiveness.
He was a four-time Eastern all-star in the Canadian Rugby Union, precursor to today's Canadian Football League. In 1931, he won the Jeff Russel Trophy as the player who best combined athletic ability with sportsmanship. Sir Edward BEATTY, president of the Canadian Pacific Rail, awarded PERRY the trophy, which earned him $200 on top of his football salary of $1,200.
From 1928 to 1934, the Wheelers squad was built around Mr. PERRY.
"I played both ways," he told The Ottawa Citizen on the eve of his 100th birthday. "I didn't often sit down, that's for sure." He once told the Montreal Gazette the secret to his success against bigger men was that "You can run like hell when you're scared." There was one time, however, when Mr. PERRY couldn't run fast enough.
"He was playing in Montreal against Ottawa and he laughed at a lineman," recalls his son. "When the teams came back here [Ottawa], the guy caught up with my dad and he was carried off the field with three broken ribs. He did not always get away." Mr. PERRY often said baseball was his favourite sport, a game he played with grace and skill. He was invited as a young teen to go to Boston to play but his father would not let him leave Moncton. Later, as a centre-fielder in Montreal, he helped his Atwater Baseball League team win five championships in seven seasons.
After retiring from football in 1934, Mr. PERRY, took up curling. After settling down in Ottawa in 1941, he won curling's Royal Jubilee Trophy in 1953 and 1956. At age 60, he scored a rare eight-ender while competing in a provincial event, says his son, who is president of the Ottawa Curling Club, which for 42 years has run a spring bonspiel in his father's name.
In Ottawa, he worked in several positions with the Bank of Canada. When he retired in the early 1970s, he was involved in the printing and distribution of Canada Savings Bonds -- ironically, working alongside Ron STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, who was once a fleet-footed running back with the Ottawa Rough Riders.
Mr. PERRY continued to curl until he was 90 and played his last round of golf at 98. At 100, the honours continued to pour in. In the 1903 Canadian Football League season, Mr. PERRY was named honorary captain of the Montreal Alouettes.
Mr. PERRY and his first wife, Jay KEITH, had three children, Gord Jr., Pat and Lynn. His second wife was Betty THOMAS. Ms. KEITH and Ms. THOMAS died in their 60s; at age 91, Mr. PERRY married Muriel TAGGART, then a 72-year-old widow. He leaves his wife and three children.

Dr. Kundan S. KHERA
Research scientist, toxicologist, husband, father, golfer and writer. Born May 12, 1922, in East Punjab, India. Died April 1, 2005, in Ottawa, of heart attack, aged 80.
Clyde SANGER - page A20
When Kundan KHERA completed his memoirs at the age of 80, some Friends objected to the title, A Life of struggles. They mentioned his scientific honours. You should call them, they said, Success After a Life of struggles. But, out of devotion to the truth rather than any bitterness, he stuck to his choice.
There were times when, but for his sense of discipline, he came close to despair. In June, 1958, he returned to the Punjab from France with his doctorate from the Sorbonne and with high hopes of an immediate professor's post and plans to develop a vaccine for foot-and-mouth disease. Instead, he was told to wait for word of an appointment.
Daily for two months he walked his father's six cows through deep mud to the well in Kot Khera, the village where he was born and where 12 family members -including his own six children - were then surviving on his father's meagre pension.
Eventually, he took work as a poorly paid instructor in pathology at the Punjab Veterinary College. His career was stalled by a hostile director, who rejected his journal article on lumbar paralysis in sheep (akin to mad-cow disease), and he had to bargain his way to professor level by promising to refuse a senior post offered him in Nigeria.
Kun followed a family tradition of struggle and, as others saw it, insubordination. His father Kesar SINGH fought for the British in Mesopotamia and survived the five-month Turkish siege of Kut, and later imprisonment. But, after qualifying as a veterinary officer, he was passed over for promotion because he opposed the taking of bribes.
By 1962, Kun had tired of the bureaucracy haunting his career in India. A year's fellowship in Texas led to work in Ottawa as a pathologist in the Food and Drug Directorate. His 28 years in Health Canada were so productive that in 1988 the Society of Toxicology gave him the Arnold J. Lehmann Award for scientific excellence, and an American book listed him among its "2,000 Outstanding Scientists of the 20th Century."
His major work was in reproductive toxicity. Arriving at Health Canada just after the thalidomide disaster, his research challenged the widely held view that a mother simply channelled a toxic chemical through the placenta to the embryo or fetus. His work, originally on mice, showed that a vast majority of chemicals, if taken in large doses, first caused toxic effects in the mother or placenta, and could account for many fetal malformations. He struggled for 10 years to get his "outlandish" theory of maternal toxicity accepted, at length triumphing at a 1986 conference of the European Teratology Society. The drug industry took swift note, and regulatory agencies revised their methods of assessing human safety.
Kun had been betrothed to Rajinder at 11 and married at 15. Although they often lived at a distance, he was a caring husband and father to their four daughters and two sons, sent much of his salary back to them in India and rejoiced when his children emigrated to Ohio. They divorced in 1971, and soon after Kun met and married Claire PAULIN. Their years together, on the farm they owned near Prescott, Ontario, or on the golf courses in Ottawa, were clearly the happiest and most tranquil of his life. Every photograph shows him smiling.
Movingly, Claire's daughter Roxanne told at Kun's funeral how her stepfather had inspired her to study and to persevere. His sons, Jag and Autar, both industrial engineers, were also testament to his example. Success after a life of struggles, indeed.
Clyde SANGER is a family friend.
