BENK, Veronique, M.D., M.Sc., F.R.C.P.C.
Dr. Veronique BENK passed away on October 4, 2005 in Toronto with her loving and devoted husband by her side after a courageous fight against breast cancer and leukemia.
She leaves her husband of 13 years, Dr. Paul FORTIN and their two beautiful children Aude (age 6) and Hadrien (age 7). In France she leaves her parents Andree and Jean-Marie BENK and her brother Jerome, his wife (Celine) and their six children. She also leaves her mother-in-law (Pauline PAQUIN) and her husband (Andre COTE,) her sister-in-law (Lucie FORTIN) and partner (Pierre PARENT) and their three children.
Dr. BENK was a radiation oncologist at the Toronto Sunnybrook Regional Cancer Centre where she specialized in the treatment of breast cancer. She was also an Adjunct Scientist at I.C.E.S. where she studied this same condition. Her patients and colleagues will remember her as an extremely caring and committed physician.
Veronique was born in St.-Quentin (Aisne), France. She obtained her medical degree from the University of Lille in France, did her specialty training in oncology at the prestigious Institut Gustave-Roussy in Paris, and at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. During her training, she found time to volunteer for one year as a physician and teacher in Burma.
It was in Boston where she met Paul, the love of her life, at the first hockey game that she had ever attended. They were married in France and moved to Canada where they were on faculty at McGill University in Montreal before moving to Toronto.
After her initial diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer, she returned to work with a renewed interest in finding ways to improve the quality of life for persons living with cancer. As part of this work, and after her diagnosis of leukemia, she became involved in Wellspring, a centre that supports individuals and their families living with cancer.
Veronique's boundless curiosity spanned the history of ancient civilizations, to romanesque cathedrals, to baroque music, to the diversity of cultures in the modern world. Her healing journey was accompanied by a desire to grow in her spiritual journey and to train as a cancer guide.
Veronique's accomplishments are many but the one she valued most was her countless Friendships and her familial life with Paul and her two "Amours". Despite her recurrent illnesses, Veronique took every opportunity to enjoy her precious time with her family. She was totally devoted to Aude, Hadrien and Paul.
We are grateful for the network of Friends and supporters in Toronto, in Canada and abroad. Special thanks to Dr. Eugenia PILIOTIS, Dr. Mary VACHON, Annette VATTER, Lorraine PAQUIN, Terry SEID and Sister Daniela and the Carmelite Missionary Sisters who provided Friendship, material and spiritual support.
The visitation will be at Morley Bedford Funeral Home, 159 Eglinton Avenue West, Toronto (416) 489-8733, on Sunday, October 9, 2005 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The celebration mass of Veronique's life will be held at Holy Rosary Catholic Church, 354 St. Clair Avenue West (at Bathurst) on Thanksgiving Monday at 2: 30 p.m. Another service is being planned on Saturday, October 15 in Quebec City - details to follow.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Veronique's name can be sent to Wellspring, 81 Wellesley Street East, Toronto, Ontario, M4Y-1H6, website: www.wellspring.ca.

Hart WHEELER
By Murray GINSBERG, Monday, December 5, 2005, Page A24
Musician, friend, photographer, recording technician. Born December 22, 1921, in Toronto. Died June 10 in Guelph, Ontario, of prostate cancer, aged 83.
Hart WHEELER was a dear friend, and one of the most intelligent individuals I ever knew. He also went out of his way so many times to help others.
Hart worked professionally as a jazz saxophonist from the age of 18 and was truly one of a kind: Talent oozed from every pore. Not only was he an accomplished musician, he was also an accomplished photographer as well as an amazing recording technician who carried his equipment wherever he went.
Quite often we would meet at my apartment for lunch or dinner. With Friends, mostly musicians, seated around the table, the stories would fly from everyone's lips while Hart would have his microphone turned on, catching every snippet of conversation "for posterity," he would say.
And each story always drew a chorus of laughs only to be topped by another story and more laughs. Those were wonderful times and I always knew that without Hart present, those parties would not have been quite the same.
He often told a charming story about how he got into music as a youth in Toronto. He said he was 15 years old and his rich aunt recognized some sort of latent talent in him because he was playing bones and harmonica in public school. So she went to Whaley Royce, the music store on Yonge Street, and bought a clarinet. That decision, he said, affected his whole life.
At the same time, he said he discovered Benny Goodman. The first thing he wanted to do was play Benny Goodman solos. The clarinet had come with ten lessons and the teacher showed him where to put his fingers. From then on, he said he got Benny Goodman records and learned Benny Goodman solos by himself. And that was how he got started.
During the Second World War, Hart served in the Royal Canadian Air Force band. After the war, he became a very busy musician. Several times he guested for director Norman JEWISON on his Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television series The Denny Vaughan Show. He also performed with the big bands of Bobby Gimby, Ellis McLintock, Art Hallman and Mart Kenney, as well as Jim Galloway's Wee Big Band and the Canadian Tribute to Glenn Miller.
In the Miller band, Hart played and sang as a featured performer. Whenever he sang songs such as Chattanooga Choo Choo and I've Got a Gal in Kalamazoo, his shining personality lit up the entire ballroom.
One of his greatest moments came on May 15, 1953, when he played alongside jazz giants DIzzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, Bud Powell, Charles Mingus and Max Roach in the legendary Massey Hall jazz concert when these musicians played together for the only time in their lives.
Hart's high level of intelligence was evident when I once asked him why he loved to play. His answer was direct and to the point: "It's tied up with emotion; it's tied up with ego; it's an artistic endeavour where your output is immediate. A lot of artistic output can take years to realize, or weeks or days, depending on what the finished product is -- a photograph, a painting, a novel or a motion picture. None are as immediate as music.
"When you play an instrument, it's not just your eye and your hand painting a picture. It's the immediate result that pleases the senses. It's a continuing, revolving beautiful experience."
Hart is survived by sons Hartland, Ted and Stacey, their wives and children. And sadly missed by his cherished cousin, Denna BENN.
Murray is Hart's friend.

Who passed away one year ago, October 29, 2004. No farewell words were spoken, No time to say good bye, You were gone before we knew it, And only God knows why. Our hearts still ache in sadness.

Sharon BENNETT
By Naomi CARNIOL, Saturday, January 15, 2005 - Page M6
Sharon Diane BENNETT started selling Avon products in 1967 because she wanted money to pave her driveway. Thirty-eight years later, that driveway has been paved four times.
"She was a natural," says Mrs. BENNETT's brother, Bill VALE. "She was so outgoing."
To many of her clients, Mrs. BENNETT was more than a cosmetics saleswoman. "Two of her customers were blind," says her daughter, Barbara DANIELS. " She would read them the book of Avon products, but she would also read them their mail... and take them to appointments."
Although she started out selling in one district, she ended up with clients all over the city. "If her customers moved, she would go with them," says her husband, Bruce.
Mrs. BENNETT died of cancer on Christmas Eve at the age of 63. Of the more than 200 people at her funeral, 50 were long-time Avon customers.
Born Sharon VALE in Toronto on December 12, 1941, she attended Birch Cliff Heights Public School and later, R. H. King Academy in Scarborough. She married Mr. BENNETT, her childhood sweetheart, in 1961 and began selling Avon six years later when Ms. DANIELS was 5. Although Mrs. BENNETT retired three years ago, she stayed in touch with her customers, many of whom dropped by the house over the summer.
His wife wasn't all about selling lipstick, Mr. BENNETT says. He recalls fondly the meals she cooked at a summer camp for the Toronto Boy Scouts and the swimming classes she taught at Birchmount Community Centre. But one thing definitely marked her as an Avon lady. "Her makeup was always perfect," Ms. DANIELS says.

BENNETT, Jean (née GORDON)
Born in Perth, Scotland, October 17, 1915, died April 8, 2005. Predeceased by her beloved husband, Peter in 1999. Survived by her children Barbara BRINK (Russell), David (Vicki), Andrea WATERSTON (Willie), Peter (Heather) and Paul, 8 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren.
Jean was educated at St. Leonard's School, St. Andrews, Scotland, and received her M.A. from St. Andrews University. She enjoyed a brief career in the British Civil Service, before her marriage to Peter in 1940. Together they moved to New York and Ottawa where Peter held diplomatic posts with the British Foreign Service.
With a growing family to support, they decided to remain in Canada. Together they lived in Oakville, Stratford, Vancouver, Toronto and Ottawa. For all these years Jean was the perfect partner to Peter, building roots in each community, whether it was establishing a church connection, finding volunteer activities, or hosting Friends and business colleagues.
In 1969, Jean obtained a library science degree. For the next nine years she worked in the National Library, before retiring to Vancouver Island in 1978. In retirement Jean and Peter indulged their love of theatre, art, history, church, golf and travel. Jean was an enthusiastic diarist of their travels to Britain, Europe, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, India, Nepal, South East Asia, and China.
Following Peter's death in 1999, Jean remained a faithful volunteer at her church, and as a palliative and hospice care visitor. She maintained her golf membership until a year before her death, and continued to travel and maintain her Scottish family connections. She will be remembered for her quick wit, passion, and commitment to family, Friends, and church.
The family wishes to extend their gratitude to her Friends in Christ Church Cathedral, Victoria Golf Club, and her neighbours in Oak Bay. Our thanks to Dr Rosenberg, and the staff at Parkwood Court.
Service will be held at Christ Church Cathedral (Quadra and Rockland), on Thursday April 14, 2005 at 2 pm. In lieu of flowers, a contribution in memory of Jean to the Christ Church Cathedral Building Fund, British Columbia Arthritis Society, Victoria Hospice, Royal Jubilee Hospital Foundation or United Nations Children's Fund (Africa), would be gratefully accepted.

SIMMONDS, Leonard Claude
Having recently entered his 89th year, surrounded by his loving wife Betty and their family, passed peacefully into the presence of God at Uxbridge on Wednesday, July 27, 2005. Born July 19, 1917 in Toronto, Claude was the cherished son of the late Arthur Claude and Ada May SHOBROOK. Deeply missed by his adored and adoring wife of more than 63 years, Betty Graham McNEILL and their seven children and their spouses, 26 grandchildren and their spouses, and 7 great-grandchildren: Ruth SIMMONDS and her children Louise KORHONEN and Chris HAZLETON, and Danielle; Shelagh and Leigh POPOV and Chloe and Sophie; Wesley KORHONEN and Laura KORHONEN. David and Suzanne SIMMONDS, Paul T. and Lisa SIMMONDS and Mackenzie; Anne Marie, Mark, Elizabeth, Jonathan, Peter and Rebecca.

Bruce and Tamara SIMMONDS and Benjamin, Joshua, Daniel and James. Paul and Laurie SIMMONDS and William. Lois WEAVER and and her children Rachel and Jessica. Predeceased by brothers Herbert A. and David S. Loving brother of sisters Gladys SMITH and Arthur, Dorothy and William EBERLIN, Mary STURGESS and Reverend Dr. William, Madeline SIMMONDS and sister-in-law Barbara SIMMONDS (Mrs. David S.). Predeceased by beloved parents-in-law John Herbert and Cassie McNEILL. Lovingly remembered brother-in-law of Reverend W. Arnold and Helen McNEILL, Alan and Marion McNEILL, Margaret and Rev. Morry WOROZBYT and Ruth H. McNEILL. Fondly remembered by Aunt Bertha TORRANS. Special 'Uncle Claude' to many nieces, nephews and their spouses and families, and to generations of Sunday School students at Immanuel Baptist and Glen Major churches. Special friend and mentor to scores of long-time Friends at Immanuel and Glen Major. Dad lived a full life of accomplishment and service in the name of his Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. He was raised in North Toronto and Rosedale, he graduated with highest honours in 1934 from Northern Secondary. With university not an option in the heart of the Great Depression, Dad joined his father A.C. SIMMONDS in the family electrical and radio parts business, commencing work on July 2, 1934 in perhaps the most difficult economic circumstances in history. He augmented his knowledge of radio through night courses at Radio College of Canada. At the outbreak of the war, Dad became a member of the 48th Highlanders Reserve, and in 1942 took a leave of absence from business to join the Royal Canadian Corps of Signals, Research and Development Branch, where he served in Ottawa in the rank of Sergeant-Major through the end of the war in 1945. One of his favourite of the many stories he used to tell was of his Commanding Officer Colonel who asked him for a job in the dying days of the war. Despite the challenge of the time he entered business, together with his father and younger brother David, Dad successfully built A.C. Simmonds and Sons to become the leading Canadian national distributor of electrical parts and electronic components, hi-fi, and communications equipment throughout the 1940's, 50's, 60's and 70's. The company was continually on the leading edge of market response to changing technology and successfully introduced many new electronic products to Canada. In 1977, Dad and his brother David recognized the expanded opportunity that would be available from the division of the Company between their families in order to accommodate the entrepreneurial abilities and drive of the next generation. This was accomplished effective January 1, 1978 with the assumption by David, his family and associates of the Lenbrook Division of A.C. Simmonds and Sons. Incorporated at that time, Lenbrook Inc. went on to become the base for the creation of numerous successful businesses including Clearnet Inc. and Air I.Q. Under Dad's leadership, A.C. Simmonds & Sons Ltd. also achieved tremendous growth and success after 1977, and spawned many different entrepreneurial enterprises including Midland Canada, Dynacharge Inc., Viewstar Canada, and ClubLink Corporation. In 1987, the family, together with other business associates, achieved control of Glenayre Electronics Ltd. of Vancouver, and Dad became Chairman until the annual meeting after the successful sale of the company in 1989. Dad had many Electronic Industry involvements, honours and associations but perhaps the one of which he was most proud of was his acceptance as a charter member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, notwithstanding the fact that the Depression has robbed him of the opportunity to actually become a qualified engineer. He had the honour of Chairing the annual Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers conference on two separate occasions. Always open to technological advancement, he travelled extensively as a guest lecturer for International Business Machines Corporation at their worldwide Ideas seminars in the 1970's. His love of people and his common touch was evidenced by his practice of personally greeting every employee at their workstation after any absence from business for more than a week. Most importantly, in the tradition established by A.C. Simmonds, Dad always conducted business with a widely recognized level of integrity that was never in doubt. Dad was a faithful and very active member of Immanuel Baptist Church for almost 80 years, fulfilling many different roles over the years including Young Peoples leader, Sunday School teacher, Juniors leader, and Board of Management member. He was General Superintendent of the Sunday School for 15 years, and was a member of the Board of Deacons for more than 50 years, serving as Chairman for many years. At the time of his passing, he continued as an Honorary Life Deacon, and one of the three Trustees of the Church. Although Dad did not possess the level of musical talent prevalent in his family, he did have a deep and abiding love of the hymns of the church, and had an incredible ability for memorization of many of them in their entirety. From the time of the purchase in 1947 of the family summer retreat in the Township of Uxbridge, Dad's church involvement shifted during the summer months to his beloved Glen Major Church, affectionately known by the family as 'the little church'. For many years he served under Sunday School superintendents Mr. John HINGSTON and Mrs. Jenny JOHNSON as Adult Class teacher, and in the mid-fifties he began to assist his father A.C. SIMMONDS as a lay preacher, using the experience he developed as a member of the Soldiers and Airmen's Christian Association in Ottawa during the war. Upon the death of his father in 1966, Dad assumed full responsibility for the lay preaching and pastoral duties, and continued faithfully to lead the vibrant summer evening services so loved by many until his inability to do so five years ago. son David assumed responsibility for coordination of the services at that time. Most of Dad's Board involvements and commitments using his tremendous skill as a consensus builder were to a wide variety of Christian organizations, consistent with his strong belief in and love for both foreign and home missions work, and at the time of his passing he continued as an Honorary Life member of most of them. These included B.Y.U. (President 1949-50), Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship for 26 years. P (Chairman 1971-74), Ontario Pioneer Camp for 11 years (Chairman 1956-61), World Team (formerly R.B.M.U.) for 46 years, Yonge Street Mission for 44 years, Tyndale College and Seminary for 45 years (formerly O.B.C. / O.T.S., Chairman 1976-82), and Scripture Union for 50 years. In 1978 he joined the Boa

John BAND, Executive And Art Collector (1915-2005)
Navy officer who hunted U-boats during the Second World War returned home to become an insurance broker and a collector of Canadian art
By Sandra MARTIN, Saturday, September 24, 2005, Page S9
Although he was a distinguished veteran and a former insurance executive, John BAND found his true calling in companionship and art. He was passionate about collecting, gardening, fitness, the navy, red wine and crossword puzzles. A good listener, he was the master of drawing people out.
Born into a family of prominent Canadian art collectors, he inherited his parents' eye and their zeal for collecting. "I wish I knew the first time I shook his hand," said art collector Ken THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, chairman of The Globe and Mail. "I think it was in the mid-50s and it must have been about art."
For half a century, the two men discussed upcoming auction sales, although their Friendship meant they never bid against each other. "I respected his judgment on paintings," Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said. Whenever Mr. BAND was "adamant" about a picture, such as The Steamship Quebec, painted by Cornelius Krieghoff in 1853, "I jolly well bought it. There wasn't going to be any doubt about that," Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON admitted.
"He was always around the corner from my house and up here," tapping his forehead with his finger, "he was right beside me all the time," Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said. "I never got along with anybody better."
Mr. BAND's love of art was ingrained growing up in a home where Arthur LISMER and Fred VARLEY were frequent guests and painting was a major dinner table topic. "John had a very keen eye for choice works and he sometimes went about acquiring them as though he was a detective," said Lisa Balfour BOWEN, a family friend and art critic. "To my knowledge, he was filling gaps in his collection virtually until the time of his death."
There was nothing passive about Mr. BAND. "He spoke his mind, but it was something that you welcomed. There were no shades. He was always direct and clear," said Dennis REID, chief curator of the Art Gallery of Ontario. "I have to say I loved him."
John Trumbull BAND was the eldest child and only son of insurance broker and art collector Charles Shaw BAND and his wife, Helen WARREN. His parents moved to New York in 1914 when Mr. BAND was transferred to the American office of James Carruthers and Co. Mr. BAND was born there a year later.
While they lived in the United States, the BANDs bought canvases painted by the Hudson River Valley artists. They sold that collection when they returned to Toronto in 1923 with John and his younger sisters, Priscilla, Barbara and Helen.
"They wanted to collect what was important in the life of Canada their country and the countryside they knew," said Mr. BAND's stepdaughter, management consultant and corporate director Jalynn BENNETT. The BANDs bought an island in Georgian Bay and became good Friends with several members of the Group of Seven.
"Their home was a testament to the art of the Twenties and Thirties in Canada," said Mr. REID. " The dining room was stupendous because it was all Lawren HARRIS's Arctic sketches. There must have been 10 of them."
Two years after the BANDs moved back to Toronto, they sent John to Trinity College School in Port Hope. He was 10. His daughter Sarah, an entrepreneur and retailer, has his first school report framed in her bathroom. "He is rather backward for his age, but he has ability and is a neat and careful worker," his teacher wrote.
In 1929, the year of the stock-market crash, the school's main building burned down. Hard economic times and the school's rebuilding difficulties persuaded his parents to withdraw him in 1931, the year he would have graduated, and send him to Jarvis Collegiate Institute in Toronto instead.
Nevertheless, Mr. BAND was a committed Trinity College School old boy. With his family's help, he gave himself an 80th birthday gift in 1995 by endowing an annual history prize.
Mr. BAND went to work in 1937 for Irish and Molson, a firm of insurance brokers that became Marsh and McLennan and later Marsh Canada. After war broke out, he enlisted in the Navy and was commissioned a Sub-Lieutenant in the Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve in 1941. About the same time, he met Mona MORROW (later CAMPBELL,) daughter of financier and company director Frederick MORROW. They married in 1942.
During the war, Mr. BAND served on H.M.C.S. Swansea, a river-class frigate in 1943 as first lieutenant. The ship, which was known as a happy and successful one, helped to sink three German U-boats in the North Atlantic in March and April of 1944 and assisted in essential enemy sweeps before the invasion of Normandy in June of 1944. He transferred to H.M.C.S. Stone Town, another frigate, with the rank of Lieutenant Commander, that November and served as its commanding officer until August of 1945.
For decades afterward, Mr. BAND caught up with his wartime cronies at an annual navy lunch he organized, inviting specialist speakers on military subjects. One of the regulars was Tony GRIFFIN, another distinguished naval veteran. "There were very few officers I could put in the same class as John BAND," he said this week. "He knew how to handle ships and men and he had a keen appreciation of the Navy."
Michael WHITBY, senior naval historian at the Department of National Defence, agrees with that assessment. "He was one of the typical Canadians who volunteered to go fight the war and who did an outstanding job." Mr. BAND's strength was to lead by gentle persuasion and quiet example. On Swansea, for example, he insisted that classical music was played on Sundays.
When peace came, he went back to Toronto and to Marsh and McLennan, working mainly on Toronto establishment accounts until he retired in 1980 as a senior executive. He needlessly regretted that the war disrupted his plans to go to university, according to Paul O'DONOGHUE, a business colleague from Marsh and McLennan who became a lifelong friend. "He was the best-informed man I ever met."
Mr. BAND and his wife Mona had three children, John, Sarah and Victoria (Vickie), but the marriage fell apart in the mid-1950s. After an acrimonious divorce and custody settlement, Mr. BAND married Elizabeth Lumbers ROGERS, a widow with two children (Jalynn BENNETT and Jennifer ROGERS,) in 1959.
His son lived with them and his daughters stayed with their mother. "We weren't allowed to see him for a long time," said his daughter Sarah, who became extremely close to her father in the past few decades. "He was my best friend," she said this week. "We talked four times a day."
As a stepfather, Mr. BAND was "warm and caring and curious about our lives without being intrusive," says Ms. BENNETT, who was 15 when her mother remarried.
He was very outgoing and had a keen sense of whimsy. He once jokingly confided plans for his funeral: a procession down Bay Street at noon with a Brinks truck following the hearse with a big sign on top saying: "Who says you can't take it with you?"
Some years after his second wife Betty died in 1992, Mr. BAND formed a new attachment with Patty FISCHER, the former wife of industrialist Michael DEGROOTE, owner of Laidlaw Transport and the Hamilton Tiger Cats.
Mr. BAND turned 90 in late August. He celebrated his birthday two weeks ago at a party he organized himself at the Toronto Hunt Club, where he'd belonged ever since his mother had bought him a membership for his 20th birthday.
His friend Ken THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON tried to give him a small J.E.H. MacDonald painting of the family island in Georgian Bay as a birthday gift. Knowing the value of the painting, Mr. BAND refused to accept it, although he delighted in pointing out familiar landmarks. Finally, he agreed to "borrow" the painting after attaching a note to the back saying it belonged to Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON. He only had a few days to enjoy it. The painting has now come back to Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, layered with "priceless" sentimental value. He plans to hang it near his desk in his office until he gives it eventually to the Art Gallery of Ontario. "But that paper is going to stay with that picture," he insisted. "That's a condition."
Last Tuesday, Sarah BAND took her father to a medical appointment where he learned that his cancer was terminal. He went home, made a final "to do" list to settle his affairs and then "crumpled."
John Trumbull BAND was born in New York on August 25, 1915. He died on Sunday of metastasized sarcoma. He is survived by one sister, three children, two stepchildren, 10 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.
A private family burial took place on Thursday. A memorial service is planned for September 30 at noon at St. Paul's Anglican Church in Toronto.
