CARTER, Alexander Walter
Walt Carter passed away peacefully in Toronto early Tuesday morning, the 4th of January, 2005, having just passed his 96th birthday. Dad enjoyed very good health and mobility up until these very last 2 or 3 months, and he was ready to go, when called. He is survived by his wife Madge (Marjory Edna GARDNER) and his sister Ida DONALD; his older brother Lionel, predeceased Dad. Mom and Dad were married for 68 years and have three married children, Brian (Charlotte,) Judy (Jerry HOMENUK,) and Tom (Louise.) There are lots of grandchildren who are going to miss 'gramps': Meghan, Andrew (and Andrea, soon to be his wife,) and Amelia CARTER Kim (Andy BURNHAM,) David, and Jill HOMENUK; and Jeff HODGINS (Lianne), Matthew CARTER (Nicole), and Krista (Todd VANZUILEKOM). He also leaves a great-granddaughter, Avery BURNHAM, whom he loved to visit with. Dad grew up in the Beach area of Toronto and spent a lot of time hiking and horseback riding in 'Taylor's Bush' back when there were only farm fields 'north of the Danforth'. He met Mom at a Saint John's Norway church dance; she was a great tennis player and they were on the Kew Beach courts often. Dad rowed in the 'eights' for the Argonauts, and his crew was of Olympic calibre. Dad was a businessman. He started working at fifteen, and although he never had a chance to attend university he became a successful owner of industrial heating engineering and supply companies. He and Mom loved to travel. Starting in the mid-1950s they spent more than two decades visiting England, Scotland, and Europe, repeatedly. He also loved to 'build'. As well as building the family home in York Mills, and a much loved cottage on Mink Lake near Apsley; at the 'ripe old age of 65' he helped his children build their cottages in Muskoka. Dad had a full life, and while we miss him, his passing was just as he wished it. Our special thanks to the Emergency and Intensive Care staff at Mount Sinai Hospital, and to the specialists who helped Dad. Our thanks as well to the staff of the Bradgate Arms for creating such a pleasant environment for Dad during his last few years. In Dad's honour, a donation to the Canadian Blood Services would be welcome. Canadian Blood Services 67 College Street Toronto, Ontario M5G 2M1

CARTER, Marjory Edna (née GARDNER)
Madge CARTER passed away peacefully in Toronto early Saturday morning, the 6th of August, having just reached her 93rd birthday on Friday. Mom enjoyed good health throughout her life, only losing mobility and memory over these last two years. She is predeceased by her husband Walt (Alexander Walter CARTER) who passed away in January. She is survived by two of her sisters, Patricia (Pat) FOX and Wilhelmina (Billy) FRASER. Mom and Dad were married for 68 years and have three married children, Brian (Charlotte,) Judy (Jerry HOMENUK,) and Tom (Louise.) There are lots of grandchildren who are going to miss 'grandma': Meghan, Amelia, and Andrew (Andrea) CARTER; Kim (Andy BURNHAM,) David, and Jill HOMENUK; and Jeff (Lianne) HODGINS, Krista (Todd) VANZUILEKOM, and Matthew (Nicole) CARTER. She also leaves two great-grandchildren, Avery and Charlie BURNHAM. Mom grew up in the Beach area of Toronto and was the second youngest in a family of nine girls. While the family didn't have 'a league of their own', Mom loved all types of sports, most notably tennis and speed skating. She spent a lot of time on the Kew Beach tennis courts and had the trophies to show for it. Saint John's Norway Anglican Church was an important focus for social activities and it was at a church dance where she met Dad. Mom was always cheerful, and while she worked in the 'early years', most of her years, and her love, were centred on being at home and bringing up her three children. She took up golf and worked in a women's fashion shop in her mature years so that she could always be 'keeping busy', staying in contact with people, and making new Friends; everyone 'took to Mom' right away. Our special thanks to the Salvation Army and the staff of the Isabel and Arthur Meighen Manor who took excellent care of Mom over her last two years. The Salvation Army was always Mom's favourite, and she knitted several hundred pairs of mittens over two decades for its Christmas bazaars. A donation to the Salvation Army in Mom's memory would be most appreciated.

O.J. VIDLER's legacy lives on in Erieau
By Megan O'TOOLE, Free Press Reporter
O.J. VIDLER loved spending time with his spaniel, enjoyed a good baloney sandwich as much as fine dining and wanted to join the navy so badly, he lied about his age to enlist.
He also owned an impressive collection of paintings by D.L. Rust of a clown named Emmett Kelly. An entire room of Molly and O.J.'s Restaurant-Tavern and Motel in Erieau -- a business developed from the ground up, and expanded over the years by the VIDLER clan -- is dedicated to Kelly, with portrait after portrait of the sad clown staring at diners.
VIDLER died June 4 following a heart attack, but left a remarkable legacy. It resounds most significantly in Erieau, along Lake Erie south of Blenheim in Chatham-Kent.
O.J.'s sons, Tom, 44, Dana, 53, and Jim, 56, recall their father as a compassionate and energetic businessperson.
"He would never retire," Tom said. "His business was like his child. He'd come out for two or three hours every day and just talk to people... he always had his finger on the pulse of the restaurant. It was the personal touch."
"He mingled, walked around -- that's what people like," Jim said. "He'd sit down and talk to you, buy you a drink; if you had a special occasion, an anniversary, he'd buy you a bottle of wine."
Born Oliver James VIDLER in 1927, O.J. lived in Erieau for most of his life. On a quick stop-over in Belfast, Ireland, he met and married the woman who would become his wife of 57 years, Molly McCOY.
The couple soon moved back to Erieau and established a small fish shop, which evolved into a larger grocery store, then a coffee shop and finally, the operation it is today, encompassed by the Vidlers' hotel and campgrounds.
The business earned Molly and O.J. the Blenheim Chamber of Commerce's Entrepreneur of the Year award in April.
"Dad was pretty proud," Jim said. "They had a big awards banquet... the whole family went out and had a great time."
A longtime member of the Blenheim branch of the Royal Canadian Legion, VIDLER was also its president in 1961.
Though he spent most of his time at the restaurant, VIDLER -- who joined the navy at 17 -- never forgot his service days, nor his pals in the Legion.
"Every Remembrance Day, all the veterans and people on parade were welcomed into the restaurant," recalled Robert BURNS, 51, chief steward of Branch 185 in Blenheim. "O.J. would supply everyone with food and beverages.
"He wasn't a very big guy in stature, but he had a great sense of humour. He could turn a line with anyone, he spoke to everyone he treated everyone the same."
The VIDLER family will continue to operate Molly and O.J.'s.
"I've already had people say, 'What's happening, is the business going down?' " Dana said, with just a hint of indignation.
Pausing, he added, as if to be sure everyone else is sure: "Of course it ain't."

ANTOFT, Kell, C.M., M.A. (July 24, 1923 - January 8, 2005)
Of Bridgewater And Halifax, Nova Scotia. Died peacefully at home in the presence of family on Saturday, January 8, 2005 after a short, courageous battle with cancer. He is survived by his wife, Mary Lou COURTNEY; children Asta, Sydney, Nova Scotia Susan, Ottawa, Ontario; Nick (Tracey) Lucasville, Nova Scotia and Tim, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia; grandchildren Adrian, Celeste, and Aurora; and his first wife, Kit BURNS. He was predeceased by parents Otto Hugo and Asta Sigrid (née RUMP;) brothers Otto and Finn; and infant sons, Otto Eric and Peter Kell. He was the last remaining member of his immediate family. Born in Roskilde, Denmark, Kell and his family emigrated to Canada in 1930, residing first in Winnipeg and finally settling in 1933 in Lakeville, Nova Scotia. Kell received his early education at King's County Academy, Kentville, Nova Scotia. He completed his B.A. in 1967 and M.A. in 1977, both from Dalhousie University. Kell served as a Royal Canadian Air Force Navigator in Britain and Europe from 1943 to 1946, receiving the Defence Medal, the Voluntary Service Medal with Overseas Bar, the Victory Medal, and the Christian X Medal (Denmark). Following the war, he settled in Montreal where he founded two successful businesses; Viking Air Service, which supplied aircraft parts to European civilian airlines, and Nordic Biochemicals Ltd., noted for pioneering the isolation of growth hormones from the pituitary gland. Kell sold his business interests in 1966 and joined the National Cancer Institute of Canada in Toronto as Assistant Executive Director, where his greatest contribution to cancer prevention involved generating the awareness of the link between smoking and cancer, work which continued for the remainder of his life through his involvement in the Canadian Cancer Society. In 1969 he returned to Nova Scotia to accept an appointment to Dalhousie University, eventually becoming Director of the Institute of Public Affairs. During his tenure, he launched a distinguished research career in local government, municipal planning, taxation and non-resident land ownership. Upon retirement in 1989, he was an Adjunct Professor at Henson College. An avid skier, Kell worked in various capacities with ski clubs and programs in Canada over the years. In 1968 he co-founded the Nancy Greene Ski League, a training program for youngsters. He was founding president of the Nova Scotia Ski Areas Association (1972), and of the Ski Atlantic Seniors' Club (1989). Kell served on the board of the Canadian Ski Association and was a life member of the Canadian Ski Instructors' Alliance. For these efforts, he was inducted into the Nova Scotia Sports Hall of Fame as a Builder in 2000. Kell will always be remembered as a man of great integrity. In his youth, he co-founded the Nova Scotia branch of the Canadian Hostelling Association (1938), remaining active in the movement as a member of the Trustee Committee. He believed Canada would be a stronger country by developing its youth. From the beginning of the Katimavik program, founded in 1977 by Senator Jacques Hebert, Kell was involved at both provincial and national Board levels, and served as National President from 1986-1989. He also believed Canada needed to remain a country of peace and co-founded Veterans Against Nuclear Arms and its affiliated organization, the Defence Research and Education Centre. Kell was tireless in his support for the New Democratic Party at both, provincial and national levels. Kell was appointed a Member of the Order of Canada in 2001 and became a member of the Council of the Order of Nova Scotia on its establishment in 2002. The family would like to thank all those who have shown such love and support during the past month. Cremation has taken place. Visitation will be at Snow's Funeral Home, 2666 Windsor Street, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Wednesday, January 12, 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m., and Thursday, January 13, 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. A celebration memorial will be held at Pier 21, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Friday, February 4, at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Otto Antoft Memorial Fund, Kings College, Dalhousie University, the Canadian Cancer Society, or any charity of choice.

KANE, The Honourable Justice Joseph Charles (1928-2005)
Retired Superior Court Judge Peacefully passed away Tuesday, January 11, 2005 at Providence Health Centre, Toronto. Joe was an inspiration to so many people throughout his life. He was our hero. He was our best friend and he was someone who led by example. Sadly missed by his wife Janet (PERKINS) and sons, Terry & Helen (Calgary), John Timothy (Toronto), Steven (Toronto), Christopher (Chicago) and daughters Dianne and Bruno BENEDETTI (Mississauga) and Wendy KANE (Toronto.) Proud grandfather of David BENEDETTI (Mississauga,) Lisa ALLANA (Markham,) Kiah and Sage KANE (Calgary.) Proud brother of Francis and wife Marilyn (Fort Worth), Jeff and wife Madeline (Burlington) and sisters Mary KANE (Toronto) and Jeanne BURNS (Toronto.) Predeceased by sisters, Ruth KELLY and Patricia KANE and brother, Fred KANE. Deeply missed by so many Friends and colleagues, in particular Leonard GOODMAN. As a respected member of the judicial and legal communities, Joe was admired for his sense integrity and honesty. In 1978, after a 23-year career as lawyer and Queen's Counsel, Joe was appointed a County Court Judge in the City of Toronto. At the age of 49, Joe was one of the youngest judges ever appointed and he served on the bench until 1997 as a Superior Court Judge. While law ruled most of his working days, his true passion was hockey. His contributions to the sport in Canada and internationally were far reaching - from coaching house league and the University of Toronto Varsity Blues, then President of the Central Pro League, Director with Hockey Canada and eventually Arbitrator with the National Hockey League. Joe loved being in a rink and around young people. While he experienced so many rewarding moments in hockey his greatest thrill was being able to coach his four sons when they were young. There was no prouder parent in the arena 7 nights a week! Words which best describe Joe are - loyal friend and kind soul. He used to say, 'a person's wealth is not measured by the amount of money in his bank account but rather, the number of Friends he acquires throughout his life'. This would mean that Joseph Charles KANE is one of the wealthiest people in the world! The family will receive Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. on Friday, January 14th. We welcome you to celebrate his life at Leaside United Church, 822 Millwood Road (at McRae Drive), on Saturday, January 15, 2005 at 11: 00 o'clock. If desired, donations to the Houses of Providence, Providence Health Centre, 3276 St. Clair Avenue East, Toronto M1L 1W1, would be appreciated.

Robert BURNS, Graphic Designer: 1942-2005
Creative wizard whose firm Burns Cooper Hynes made the logos of corporate Canada instantly recognizable allowed cocaine to ruin a brilliant career, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Wednesday, June 1, 2005, Page S7
Robert BURNS was many things -- a graphic artist, a creative thinker, a father -- but most of all he was a cocaine addict. That fact obscured his talents and darkened his life for the last 25 years, from the collapse of the high-flying design firm Burns Cooper Hynes in the early 80s to the ruin of personal relationships.
As a designer he was the equivalent of a bandleader, said his former partner, copywriter Jim HYNES. "He was like Glenn Miller. He knew the sound he wanted to create and he was a genius at putting together the right ingredients to get that result." Other people did most of the work, of course. "He used to call me the donkey," said Mr. HYNES "because I did a little work every day, keeping the cart moving at all times while he would run, run, run and then crash because he would be running at a pace that nobody could sustain."
At his best, Mr. BURNS was a virtuoso of the big idea -- the central phrase or image that you could build a product or an advertising campaign around. "He had heart, wit and intelligence," said Eric (Ric) YOUNG a social and environmental communications consultant. "That is a rare combination and it was invested in all of his work, which was strategic and conceptual. He had real passion and ambition and he brought fantastic energy and an aspiration for greatness to every project."
"He could plug into another person and tune himself onto that wavelength so perfectly that it was mesmerizing," said Mr. HYNES. "That was his greatest talent when he was building a very successful organization, but it was also the talent that enabled him to survive on the street and carry on with a lifestyle that most people can only manage for a few years before they end up in the graveyard."
Robert BURNS grew up in a working-class neighbourhood on the outskirts of London. He was hard to handle as a teenager and once made the newspapers after he and a couple of Friends were arrested for urinating on somebody's front lawn. His parents, fearing he was headed for trouble, made him enlist in the Royal Air Force at age 15, to train as an airplane mechanic. Robert frequently butted heads with his superiors, although he did find success as a bugler and a fencer. Finally, he persuaded the Royal Air Force that he was a conscientious objector and won a discharge.
He put together a portfolio and went to art school in London on a grant for a couple of years. Like so many creative types in the early 1960s, he fancied himself a folksinger. As well as strumming a guitar, he ran an artist's booking agency called Folksounds in Lewisham.
He met Canadian Ellen ANDERSON (now an artist and social activist) in 1965 as she "stepped off the plane" from Toronto. One of her high-school Friends, who was working at the same agency, had asked him for a ride to the airport. "We never parted from that point," Ms. ANDERSON said. They married and made plans to move to Canada.
Mr. BURNS, then 22, needed a passport. At the registry office he made a casual joke about his parentage and learned that he'd been adopted as a baby. He felt betrayed, according to Ms. ANDERSON, who believes that confronting the truth about his birth was one of the demons that Mr. BURNS wrestled with for the rest of his life.
In Toronto, Mr. BURNS and Ms. ANDERSON shared a house with a number of artists. Mr. BURNS found work as a graphic artist for the CTV television network and then formed his own company called Robert Burns Designs. Ms. ANDERSON says her husband, who had grown up with rationing and deprivation, was so bewitched by the wealth of North America that he wrote a letter to a friend back in England saying, "the streets are filled with cars as big as houses."
Mr. BURNS left Ms. ANDERSON in 1969 when she was pregnant with their son Gabe. The breakup was cruel and acrimonious. By then, Mr. BURNS was working on a freelance basis with Heather COOPER, an illustrator and graphic designer whom he'd met through photographer Bert BELL. They began a professional and personal relationship that lasted 11 years, a creative partnership that brought them a stellar list of clients, a lavish life style and a daughter Sarah who is now 34.
Either separately, or together as the graphic design firm Burns Cooper, they seemed to be involved in everything that was fresh and innovative, from David Crombie's mayoralty campaign to Canadian Brass, Roots and CITY-TV. " Being intensely creative was what we were about," said Ms. COOPER. " Work was our passion and probably the original reason for us being together."
Jim HYNES, then a corporate communications executive, arrived in Toronto from Montreal in 1972 and hired them to develop a new graphic identity for his company. Over the next three years, the two men became close Friends. Finally, in 1975, Mr. BURNS persuaded Mr. HYNES to quit his job and join him and Ms COOPER in a partnership that became Burns Cooper Hynes.
"Within the next five years we became if not the biggest graphic design company in Canada certainly the best known and the most prestigious," said Mr. HYNES. They produced corporate identities, annual reports and sales materials for clients such as Northern Telecom, Alcan, Imperial Oil, Cadillac Fairview and Canadian Pacific airlines.
"He loved luxury. When he had money, it vanished instantly on the most expensive things he could find." says Mr. HYNES. In those days it was not uncommon to end a meeting with an advertising agency by doing a "mile-long line" of cocaine on the boardroom table. "Everybody snorted coke," said Mr. HYNES. "It was considered completely harmless fun." But Mr. BURNS moved on to injecting, quickly draining the company to feed his rapacious habit.
"He changed our lives in a big way, first for the better and then for the worse," said Mr. HYNES. "I needed to get out of the corporate world and I still remember that decade as the happiest of my working life. Heather is a very reclusive person and for her to sell herself as an illustrator was very difficult, but Robert made her into a superstar. The first requirement of one of Robert's big ideas was a great big poster by Heather COOPER."
After the collapse of Burns Cooper Hynes in the early 1980s -- Ms. COOPER said it took her years to wind up dealings with creditors and contractors -- Mr. BURNS started a couple of other design firms, but he never really recovered.
"I thought he might be able to control his addictions, said Ms. ANDERSON, "but he had so many demons and drugs were the way to keep them at bay." About a year ago he learned that he had at least two types of hepatitis and he had terminal liver damage.
Although he had been living on and off the street for years, lately he was living in a group home run by the Homes First Society and had connected with outreach and religious workers at St. James Cathedral in Toronto and a neighbourhood centre called 6 St. Joseph Street. Two weeks ago, he spent the day working on a renovation project, went home to have some soup with a friend and collapsed.
Robert BURNS was born in London, England on April 16, 1942. He died of hepatitis and heart failure on May 14 after nearly 30 years of drug abuse. He was 63. He is survived by his first wife Ellen ANDERSON and his son Gabe; and by his former partner Heather COOPER, his daughter Sarah Cooper BURNS and her family.

I Remember -- Robert BURNS
By John SEBERT, Tuesday, June 7, 2005, Page S7
Victoria -- Former film director and photographer John SEBERT of Victoria writes about Robert BURNS, whose obituary appeared on June 1.
During the 1960s and 1970s, I worked with a handful of artists who, for lack of a better word, were geniuses. The closer they approached that category the more difficult they were, and the harder they were on themselves. I think Robert BURNS was in that group and it might explain his problem life. We so-called creative types of the advertising art business in that period even had our own speakeasy, Jimmy's Bar near Yonge and Bloor. It was a wonderful uninhibited place but I don't ever remember dope being used. In my experience, it was not common to find cocaine at the boardroom table. I spent over 40 years in almost every ad agency boardroom in Canada and not once saw cocaine. I had the privilege of knowing and working with Robert and Heather COOPER, so I was involved with the same clients. We were not angels but our usual abuse of choice was a very dry martini in fairly large quantities. It was a kiss of death in the ad biz to be known to be a drug addict.

KANE, The Honourable Justice Joseph Charles (1928-2005) Retired Superior Court Judge
Peacefully passed away Tuesday, January 11, 2005 at Providence Health Centre, Toronto. Joe was an inspiration to so many people throughout his life. He was our hero. He was our best friend and he was someone who led by example. Sadly missed by his wife Janet (PERKINS) and sons, Terry and Helen (Calgary,) John TIMOTHY (Toronto), Steven (Toronto), Christopher (Chicago) and daughters, Dianne and Bruno BENEDETTI (Mississauga) and Wendy KANE (Toronto.) Proud grandfather of David BENEDETTI (Mississauga), Lisa ALLANA (Markham,) Kiah and Sage KANE (Calgary.) Proud brother of Francis and wife Marilyn (Fort Worth), Jeff and wife Madeline (Burlington) and sisters, Mary KANE (Toronto) and Jeanne BURNS (Toronto.) Predeceased by sisters, Ruth KELLY and Patricia KANE and brother Fred KANE. Deeply missed by so many Friends and colleagues, in particular Leonard GOODMAN. As a respected member of the judicial and legal communities, Joe was admired for his sense of integrity and honesty. In 1978, after a 23-year career as lawyer and Queen's Counsel, Joe was appointed a County Court Judge in the City of Toronto. At the age of 49, Joe was one of the youngest judges ever appointed and he served on the bench until 1997 as a Superior Court Judge. While law ruled most of his working days, his true passion was hockey. His contributions to the sport in Canada and internationally were far reaching - from coaching house league and the University of Toronto Varsity Blues, then President of the Central Pro League, Director with Hockey Canada and eventually Arbitrator with the National Hockey League. Joe loved being in a rink and around young people. While he experienced so many rewarding moments in hockey, his greatest thrill was being able to coach his four sons when they were young. There was no prouder parent in the arena 7 nights a week! Words which best describe Joe are - loyal friend and kind soul. He used to say, "a person's wealth is not measured by the amount of money in his bank account but rather, the number of Friends he acquires throughout his life." This would mean that Joseph Charles KANE is one of the wealthiest people in the world! The family will receive Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. on Friday, January 14th. We welcome you to celebrate his life at Leaside United Church, 822 Millwood Road (at McRae Drive), on Saturday, January 15, 2005 at 11: 00 o'clock. If desired, donations to the Houses of Providence, Providence Health Centre, 3276 St. Clair Avenue East, Toronto M1L 1W1, would be appreciated.

FRASER, Christopher Edwin Jr.
With the unconditional support of his soulmate Kay and his children Marie (HOUGHTON,) Colin, Patricia (MANN) and Karen, on his own terms and very much at peace, Christopher embraced the motto of the Clan Fraser: "Je Suis Prest" and completed the pilgrimage that was his life on March 1st, 2005. His parents (deceased) Christopher FRASER Sr. and Madeline FRASER (née BURNS,) his siblings Sr. Dorothy FRASER, C.S.J., Donald (Elinor,) Elizabeth (Lino MARCON,) and Sr. Janet FRASER, C.S.J., Donna FRASER, his sons-in-law John HOUGHTON and Peter MANN, Sandee, Joe and his grandchildren Andrew, Emily, Adon, Spencer, FRASER and Sonny were also in his thoughts with his nieces and nephews. Christopher loved God. He loved his 73 years of life, his family and his Friends and these loved him and gave him great and sustaining joy. "Moose" was ever the consummate teacher and de facto preacher. He always indulged an unquenchable thirst for lively debate and discussion, peppered with true Fraser humour. Summers were only complete if spent at the Cottage. The news of his illness brought spontaneous stories from across North America of his having made people feel valued and loved. He learned that those whom time and geography had made to seem distant had always kept him close in their hearts and minds because of his enduring influence on them. God's unconditional love that His creations are beautiful and precious and that as Christians we should act as our brother Jesus, were a constant theme in Chris' life with family, Friends, students and fellow educators. Christopher built community and modelled love for the individual. His influence on so many lives will long outlast his all too brief time on this Earth. Visitation will be held at Blessed Trinity Church, 3220 Bayview Avenue, Toronto on Friday, March 4, 2005 from 1: 00-2:00 p.m. Mass celebrating Christopher's life will follow at 2: 00 p.m. A reception will immediately follow the Mass. A private burial service will take place in Lindsay, Ontario. Arrangements entrusted to the Mackey Funeral Home, 33 Peel Street, Lindsay (705-328-2721). As a founding director of the "Friends of Shopping Bag Ladies" Christopher requested that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made in his memory to the shelter that supports these women in downtown Toronto (416 Dundas Street East, Toronto, Ontario M5A 2A8).

HAYES, Robert T. (October 31, 1917-March 23, 2005)
Of Orillia, died in Tucson, Arizona from complications of living life to the fullest. Bob is survived by his wife Enid of 62 years five daughters: Emme (Gord) BURNETT of Port Perry, Adrienne (Bob) DAVIES and Pixie (Darin) BURNS of Orillia, Merry O'NEILL of Burlington and Louise HAYES (Pete MEDIG) of Jasper, Alberta; two sons: Charlie (Margaret) HAYES of St. Catharines and John (Leslie) HAYES of Toronto and son-in-law Bill HEWITT of Toronto. Bob was predeceased by his daughter Diane HEWITT of Toronto. Bob is also survived by 18 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren. Bob will be remembered by the education community in St. Catharines and the province of Ontario as a tremendous innovator, an educational entrepreneur. There are two major innovations that have had a great effect on Ontario high school programs since 1970. First and foremost, when he was Principal, Merritton High School was one of two schools in Ontario to pilot the current credit system. Secondly, as the founding Principal of Governor Simcoe Secondary School, Bob pioneered the semester system as one of two Ontario schools to pilot the program. Bob also felt that students would learn better in unphased or open courses. He was a strong advocate for special needs students, gifted education and the French immersion program. When he retired in 1978, Bob moved to Orillia where he enjoyed gardening at his home, golfing with his Friends at Couchiching, playing cards and pool at the Legion and all the social stuff at the Golden K where he is a past president and regional governor. Bob and Enid loved to travel and have enjoyed winter golf in Tucson for the past 12 years. Bob HAYES was a well respected and beloved member of the community. He lived life right to the end. He was coherent and intelligent with visitors in his home up to an hour before he died. There will be a memorial service in Orillia later on in April. We shall miss you Dad.

Joe is predeceased by his loving wife Shirley HAMPSON (2005) and son-in-law Richard WINSTANLEY. Dad will always be remembered for his devotion to his family. Dad worked for over 30 years as a driver for Toronto Transit Commission and GO Transit and decided to retire when his granddaughter Kathryn was born. Dad was an avid model train collector and spent many weekends at model train shows with his American Flyer collection. Dad was also very active in the activities of Newtonbrook United Church. We would like to thank Dr. KIRSHEN for his kindness and wisdom, Dr. ISCOE, and nurse Elaine for their compassion and understanding and Bev BURNS for her daily visits with dad. Service will be held at Newtonbrook United Church, 55 Cummer Ave., Toronto, M2M 2E5, Thursday, November 10th, 2005 at 10: 30 a.m. If desired, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, 620 Wilson Avenue, Suite 501, Toronto, M3K 1Z3 or Newtonbrook United Church.
