Lawrence ROLUF, Aviator: 1914-2005
Prairie lad who was romanced by the glamour of flight had his wings even before the Second World War. Later, he perfected the role of the Canadian airborne firefighter
By Carol COOPER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Thursday, March 17, 2005 Page S9
From the age of 4 when he saw his first air show, Lawrence ROLUF felt passionate about flying. That passion led to an adventurous life, during which he encountered stars of both the celestial and terrestrial kind.
Mr. ROLUF flew fishermen to secluded spots, prospectors and their equipment to locate lodes, airmen on training during the Second World War, and transported the ill. He also conducted aerial geophysical surveys and water-bombed fires.
Among other planes, he flew Tiger Moths, Norsemen and long-range, amphibious Cansos in many countries. "He never got over the glamour of flight," said his youngest sister, Adele ARCHER. "To him, it was something that was amazing, and he never got over the wonder of it."
Mr. ROLUF's Scottish-born mother often said her eldest son led a vagabond existence. Frequently, his family did not know where he was until he phoned, often from a foreign country. His origins were less exotic. Born in rural Saskatchewan, he grew up in Winnipeg, and Red Lake, Ontario, where his father owned the local movie theatre. By the age of 12, he was building radios; during his teens, he fixed up old cars.
After completing high school, Mr. ROLUF worked in local mines to earn money for flying lessons, which he took in Windsor, Ontario Beginning in 1942, he flew recruits training in air observation at No. 7 Air Observer School in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba The school was one of 10 Air Observer Schools across Canada, and along with many other specialized schools was established as part of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan.
Under the plan begun in late 1939, crews for the air forces of Canada, Britain, Australia and New Zealand were trained at airfields scattered across Canada. By its finish in 1945, the plan had trained 131,553 airmen, 55 per cent of them Canadian.
Historians J.L. Granatstein and Desmond Morton in Canada and the Two World Wars, published in 2003, describe the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan as "quite possibly Canada's major contribution to the war against the Axis powers."
As at all Air Observer schools, the recruits Mr. ROLUF flew at No. 7 Air Observer School learned aerial photography, reconnaissance and air navigation. Among those students Mr. ROLUF met was a young Richard Burton. He became acquainted with Lincoln ALEXANDER, also associated with the school. Mr. ALEXANDER went on to become a lieutenant-governor of Ontario, the first member of a visible minority to serve as such in Canada.
After the war, Mr. ROLUF set up his own small airline, called Chikuni after a river. The river was also known as Crooked River, so his family got a laugh out of calling Mr. ROLUF's business "Crooked Airline." He flew all manner of goods and people, including actor and Hollywood musical star Dennis Morgan to his favourite fishing hole.
Perhaps it was the nickname, but for some reason Mr. ROLUF's business did not last and he moved on to fly with Gold Bilt Air Services in Rouyn and Sept-Isles, Quebec From there, he piloted passengers and freight in wartime Cansos, the Canadian-built version of the U.S. Navy's Catalina. And, he did the same for the Distant Early Warning line. Once, after checking that his plane was securely lashed down for the night, he took a kick at a lump in the snow. The lump morphed into a young polar bear that ran the other way.
Mr. ROLUF moved from cold to hot climates when he flew geophysical surveys in Nigeria. While walking through an airport there, he heard his name called. It was Richard Burton, accompanied by Elizabeth Taylor. Ms. Taylor truly does have purple eyes, Mr. ROLUF later told his family.
On another of his jaunts, Mr. ROLUF delivered food to Cuba during the American embargo. He was met by Cuban soldiers bristling with arms. They relaxed when they saw the load of potatoes. Mr. ROLUF next worked in Australia, where he flew supplies from Darwin to New Guinea for a mining operation. Upon his return to Canada, he became ill with tuberculosis. Medications used to treat his lengthy illness permanently damaged his hearing.
Following his recovery, Mr. ROLUF joined Avalon Aviation in Gravenhurst, Ontario, where he began water-bombing. He was contracted out to different places, including Norway, France, Argentina and California. At home, he fought fires in Thunder Bay and trained water-bomber crews in Newfoundland.
Intelligent, a talented pianist and a loner, Mr. ROLUF got along well with wildlife. "He loved animals," Mrs. ARCHER said. "I think in many ways he related to animals better than he did to people."
As a teenager, her brother kept a pet crow in the attic. Later, he owned a race horse named Walhalla, which won one race and then became ill. It needed a lot of expensive medical attention and never raced again.
One of Mr. ROLUF's last flights occurred in 1989, when at the age of 75, he flew an old Canso, a large plane that demands a lot of physical strength, across the Atlantic. After hearing of his plans to deliver it to a museum in the Netherlands, a few in his family thought that he'd finally lost it -- until they received a call from Mr. ROLUF from Holland. He returned safely to retirement in Gravenhurst, Ontario, where he lived with his cats.
Lawrence Carl ROLUF was born on September 10, 1914 in Balcarres, Saskatchewan. He died on January 3 in hospital in Huntsville, Ontario, at the age of 90. He was predeceased a sister, Marjorie. He leaves brothers Albert and Fred, and sisters Grace KNECHTEL and Adele ARCHER.

VANDERHOEK, Gerry
The following verses are dedicated to my best friend (Gerry VANDERHOEK) who passed away on Saturday, June 11, 2005.
Crossing The Bar
Sunset and evening star,
And one clean call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea
But such a tide as moving seams asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
When that which draw from out the boundless deep
Turns again home.
Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark
For tho' from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crost the bar.
-Lord Alfred Tennyson
On behalf of my family (Paul and Cassandra).
We will never forget you, Gerry.
I love you, Squid.
- Helen ALEXIOU
