At Toronto, on Tuesday, January 25, 2005, at 4: 00 p.m., John, at age 91, peacefully slipped away to his eternal rest surrounded by his family and secure in his faith, both of which were so very important to him. Loving and cherished husband of Margaret (Peggy) for 64 years. Dear father of Jennifer and her husband Randy REESE, Janet CALLAGHAN and her partner Jeff BUTLER. He is remembered lovingly and proudly by his grandchildren Vanessa and her husband Boaz AXELRAD, Lindsey and her husband Jordan BLACK, Brendan CALLAGHAN, Courtenay WISE, Miranda CALLAGHAN, Darcy CALLAGHAN and his fiancée Taissa PRYCHODKO, and by his great-grandchildren Neeve and Kai AXELRAD and Zoe BLACK. John led a full and remarkable life that began in Newcastle upon Tyne on November 23, 1913. He joined the British Army as a very young man and rose to the rank of Major on a journey that took him to India with the Royal Horse Artillery, Singapore and Europe as well as North Africa, Iraq, Egypt and Italy during World War 2. One of John's joys later in life was the time he spent as a retiree working as a court clerk for the family court of Ontario. John learned a lot about the fine work and difficult decisions that must be wrestled with on a daily basis by the lawyers and judges in their efforts to protect a fair and just society. John never stopped learning and was always deeply interested in public affairs and international politics. Though he spent many years as a soldier, he was deeply saddened by the expansion of violence and wars throughout the world, especially the involvement of foreign troops that escalate these circumstances and expose the soldiers to unnecessary danger. A mass will be held at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church, 78 Clifton Road (at St. Clair Avenue East), on Saturday, January 29th, at 1: 30 p.m.

John BUTLER of Toronto writes about Leo LABINE, whose obituary appeared on March 1.
I never met Leo LABINE but, as a hockey fan from his era, I read his obituary with great interest. When I arrived home that evening I saw on our kitchen table a Jello hockey coin, of the type I used to collect more than 40 years ago. My wife explained that it had fallen out of a container of toys my mother had sent home with us after visiting her two days earlier. That coin from my old collection was a 1961-2 coin of Detroit Red Wing forward, Leo LABINE. My wife and I both went out and bought lottery tickets.

George BUTLER, Musician 1936-2005
Alabama-born 'blower' whose poor beginnings meant he was born to play the blues put down roots in Chicago but later took his 'swamp harp' sound and settled in Windsor, Ontario
By Brad WHEELER, Wednesday, March 23, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- He held the harmonica upside down, and wasn't supposed to live long after birth. George (Wild Child) BUTLER, a robust, barrel-chested blues performer and composer who possessed a sturdy baritone voice, forged a long career marked by sporadic recordings and under-recognition. With a beaming moon face and a star-emblazoned front tooth, the gregarious musician, it was said, never met a stranger.
Although portrayed as a Chicago bluesman, Mr. BUTLER's style was singular and owed as much to his upbringing in Alabama as his time in the Windy City. The damp, earthy sound of his harmonica playing was usually described as a "swamp harp" tone. Like many budding musicians in the rural south in the 1940s, 12-year-old George was too poor to buy a proper harmonica. Instead, he fashioned a crude instrument from an old Prince Albert tobacco can, half-filling it with thin gravel and cutting holes in the end into which he moaned.
Eventually acquiring a store-bought harmonica, the self-taught Mr. BUTLER developed prowess despite the fact that he had learned to produce the requisite bluesy groans, squawks and whimpers while playing in an unconventional manner -- he held his mouth harp upside down. It wasn't until he was 25 that he found out that the high notes on the harmonica were usually to the right. He continued, however, to play the instrument the way he had learned. "The sound that I got was so uniquely my own," Mr. BUTLER recalled years later, "that people encouraged me to continue doing it my own way."
In all likelihood, the strong-willed musician needed very little prodding. Unlike many of his contemporaries, Mr. BUTLER was a songwriter, performing and recording his own compositions instead of covering others' material. As well, suggestions by record label producers that he stray from standard electric blues to incorporate rock and soul influences were not well-received by the musician. "The way I do my blues, that's me," Mr. BUTLER once said. "The blues isn't something that I do, it's something that I am."
Though it may sound clichéd, it is not unreasonable to suggest that Mr. BUTLER was born to play the blues. The son of 13-year-old Betty Mae BUTLER, he was the eldest of nine children. His humble beginnings extended to his own condition -- he was in such perilous health as an infant that family members who fed him "greens juice" in the morning were never quite sure if he would still be alive in the evening when they returned from working the fields.
He survived, and then some -- before he could even walk, the tyke had earned a nickname. The rambunctious boy took to harassing the women who visited his mother on Sundays after church. He would crawl across the floor of the family's modest dwelling outside Montgomery, Alabama, and pull on their skirts and legs. His mother began calling him "leg man" until neighbours politely suggested that "wild child" might be more appropriate.
By the time he was 5, he was already singing the blues. At fish fries and all-night jukes, young George would be plunked on table tops and expected to sing. As a young teen, he began working the fields, picking corn from sunrise to sundown for $1.50 a day. Escaping a life of hard labour was on his mind when he wrote one of his first songs: "I'm leaving here early in the morning. Peoples, I'm about to go out of my mind. I'm going to find me some companion, even if she's deaf, dumb, crippled and blind."
In the mid-1950s, Mr. BUTLER made good on his promise and left Alabama for Chicago. There, he struck up a Friendship with Eddie Taylor, a pioneering guitarist and a crucial figure in the founding of postwar Chicago blues. The pair made a rather odd couple -- the expressive, jovial harmonica player paired with a guitarist of serious and reserved temperament. These were the glory days of the Chicago blues scene, but even so the young harpist and singer was unable to make his mark.
By the late 1950s, Mr. BUTLER was gigging professionally as a bandleader and moving around. He recorded his first sides in 1963 on the Sharp label, in Montgomery. Aching All Over and Down in the Chill, a harmonica instrumental, were both original compositions. At one point, he ended up at the doorstep of Buddy Guy, a Chicago guitarist who worked steadily for the Chess label. Today, Mr. Guy is regarded as the greatest living blues guitarist, but at the time he was a session player -- one of the very best, but not someone who could offer much help to a harmonica player looking for a record contract.
Back in the South, Mr. BUTLER recorded with celebrated Texas country blues artist Lightnin' Hopkins for the Jewel label. Eventually, he recorded his own material with Jewel, backed by well-known musicians such as Jimmy Dawkins and Big Walter Horton. Mr. BUTLER's association with the label, however, was not a lucrative endeavour. Rather than release an album, the company leased the material to another label, Charly, which did issue an album (Open Up Baby) but failed to compensate Mr. BUTLER, who only found out about the record when he came across it in a store.
In 1969, Mr. BUTLER joined the Sam Lay Blues Revival Band, a loose touring collective formed by drummer Sam Lay that included his old friend Eddie Taylor and guitarist Jimmy Rogers, among others. Mr. BUTLER spent the succeeding years travelling to Houston, New Orleans, Detroit and, eventually, Windsor. While touring in the Yukon in the early 1980s, the musician met a Canadian who would eventually become his wife and manager. The couple chose the Windsor area because it was as close to Chicago as they could get and still be in Canada, according to his wife, Elaine.
Mr. BUTLER, who wrote more than 200 songs, recorded for a variety of labels; his last album, Sho' Nuff, was released in 2001. The recordings were characterized by what came to be known as "snapping blues" -- so described for the syncopated manner in which Mr. BUTLER sang and played the harmonica. If commercial success wasn't in the cards, the musician was highly praised by peers and critics alike. The great blues composer and producer Willie Dixon described Mr. BUTLER's "way-out strange voice," and said that he could hear it between Howlin' Wolf and Lightnin' Hopkins. "Ain't nothing been around like that."
Mr. BUTLER slowed down the pace of his career in the past few years, choosing to go fishing as much or more than perform. He played Toronto's Black Swan as recently as 1999, and his final performance occurred last summer at the Snowbird Jazz and Blues Festival in Utah.
Neighbours would find Mr. BUTLER occasionally on various farm ponds and fishing holes in Stoney Point, Ontario, where he liked to fish a little and play his harmonica. Once, with his back to the road, he blew his harp and, unbeknownst to him, a crowd gathered. He finished one song, and was about to put his instrument away when the listeners told the surprised player to continue. "Don't stop now," they said.
George BUTLER was born in Autaugaville, Alabama, on October 1, 1936. He died in a Windsor, Ontario, hospital on March 1, 2005, as a result of a pulmonary embolism. He was 68. He is survived by his wife, Elaine, and by a son and two daughters from a previous marriage.

BUTLER, Frank
On April 21, 2005 at Sunnybrook Hospital, Toronto, in his 90th year. Predeceased by his second wife, Jean, in 2003 and by his first wife, Elizabeth "Betty," in 1973. Brother to Suzanne PERRÉARD and Angela BUTLER, both of Geneva, Switzerland, and Charlotte VIDAL (Federico) of Cochiti Lake, New Mexico; brother-in-law to Scott BOWERBANK of Victoria, British Columbia. Father to Veronica BUTLER of Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Michael BUTLER (Diana) and Virginia BUTLER, both of Victoria, British Columbia. Grandfather to Erica HOUSE (Michael FRASER) of Toronto, Jennifer BUTLER and Simon BUTLER, both of Vancouver, British Columbia. Great-grandfather to Tessa FRASER of Toronto. He will be greatly missed by his family and by his many Friends.
Frank was born on June 13, 1915 in Griffithstown, United Kingdom. He was educated at Sherborne School in England and Trinity College, Toronto, after the family emigrated to Canada. Frank spent most of his career with Shell Canada Ltd., where he held positions of increasing responsibility in Toronto and Montreal until his retirement in 1975. During the Second World War, he served as a pilot in the Royal Canadian Air Force, rising to the rank of Squadron Leader. Flying a Hudson bomber from Royal Canadian Air Force bases in the Maritimes, he helped protect Atlantic convoys from enemy submarines. He recalled these years as being the best in his life, particularly as they were also the early years of a very happy marriage to Betty, which began in 1940. Especially happy times with Betty and the children followed construction of a family cottage on Lake Muskoka in the 1960s. After Betty's untimely death, he married Jean McKinley TOOMBS in 1974, beginning a close partnership which lasted almost thirty years. This partnership extended to the business world: after Frank left Shell, they both managed the Canadian operations of the Forty Plus human resources consulting group, which evolved into the Life Management Centre.
Frank's outlook on life was that of the indefatigable optimist and enthusiast. These attributes, combined with a high degree of courage, enabled him stoically to endure his steadily increasing infirmities over the past nine years, including Parkinson's disease.
The family would like to extend a special thanks to Frank's companion, Andrew KERZNER, who over the past two and a half years enabled Frank to enjoy a wide range of worthwhile experiences despite his disabilities. The staff of Briton House are also to be commended for their caring attention during this time.
A memorial service for Frank will be held at St Clement's Anglican Church, 59 Briar Hill Avenue, on May 6 at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Parkinson Society of Canada.
