Lynn KING, Jurist: 1944-2005
A partner in the first all-female law firm in Toronto, she became a highly respected provincial court judge who brought a human touch to her family law courtroom, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Tuesday, March 22, 2005, Page S9
The law was as familiar as family for Madam Justice Lynn KING. Her father, her uncle and her aunt were all judges. And yet there was nothing traditional about her approach to the law, either as a lawyer or as a judge.
"She was completely fearless. She didn't care what anybody thought, which is a great strength in a judge," said Mr. Justice Brent KNAZAN of the Ontario Provincial Court. As an illustration, he referred to her 1991 judgment when she ruled that keeping young offenders in overcrowded and filthy holding cells without adequate access to counsel constituted cruel and unusual treatment and violated the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
"She took a personal interest in every kid who stood up in front of her," said Mr. Justice Brian WEAGANT of the Ontario Provincial Court, who had appeared before her many times as a defence counsel. She was in the vanguard of pushing for easy access to expert representation, he said. After Judge WEAGANT was appointed to the bench, he found her extremely supportive as a colleague.
"Lynn had the ability to make every person in her courtroom feel like a human being," said Madam Justice Harriet SACHS of the Ontario Provincial Court. She described how Judge KING, her former law partner and friend, created an atmosphere -- especially in youth court -- in which teenagers felt she was seeing them as people rather than as young offenders.
Judge KING, she said, was a leader both as a lawyer and as a judge, and intuitively understood what was just. "She had the intellectual capacity to reason her way, but she also had such an instinct for justice."
"She was very kind, extremely generous and very fair -- everything I try to be," said Judge KING's older son, Jonah, 22, a student at Trent University in Peterborough. "She didn't have a biased bone in her body."
Lynn KING grew up on the shores of Ramsay Lake in Sudbury, one of three children of Harry and Madelaine WAISBERG. There's a story Judge KING loved to tell about how, as a child, she showed up at school in the depths of winter without a hat or mittens. An outraged teacher called her mother demanding to know how Mrs. WAISBERG could let her daughter leave the house without winter clothing. "Wait until you get to know Lynn," her mother replied calmly.
In 1961, in her final year of high school, her parents sent her to board at Toronto's Branksome Hall, where she met her lifelong friend Wendy WRIGHT, now an assignment editor at CTV News. "We were the only two Jewish girls in residence," Ms. WRIGHT recalled yesterday. "We didn't look at all alike, but they kept getting us confused and, to this day, we still giggle about whether they could see past our religion."
Describing her friend as a very giving woman, Ms. WRIGHT said "her sense of humour was what was so thrilling and the ray of light that got me through that year. She was brilliant in high school; she had insight beyond her years and a sense of social responsibility that was clearly developed by then."
Judge KING then went to the University of Toronto, where she earned a degree in economics, followed by a master's degree from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts., and then back to the University of Toronto for a law degree. She was called to the bar in 1973, in the incremental wave of women that began receiving law degrees in Canada. A committed social activist, she began practising with Paul COPELAND and her then husband, Greg KING, in a small law office in midtown Toronto. "She was a progressive person with a heart of gold who did a nice job for her clients," said Mr. COPELAND, mentioning that Judge KING mainly did matrimonial work when she was his law partner.
After her marriage broke up, she left Copeland King and taught at Osgoode Hall for a year before joining lawyers Mary CORNISH and Harriet SACHS to form Cornish King and Sachs in 1976, the first all-female law firm in Toronto.
"I prefer to control my own work, to choose my partners and clients, to focus on women's issues," she told journalist Judy STEED in a 1980 article on women lawyers. Ms. CORNISH said: "She was very active in using the law as an instrument of social change, and she did it in a number of different ways as a lawyer and a judge, especially around gender issues in terms of family law and, ultimately, youth justice."
Judge SACHS added: "She had an enormous capacity for empathy and it never compromised her ability to see the essence of a situation."
In 1980, Lynn KING wrote What Every Woman Should Know About Marriage, Separation and Divorce, a guide written from a woman's point of view that focused on the financial, legal and business side of marriage. In 1986, she co-authored Women Against Censorship.
She met her second husband, writer M.T. (Terry) KELLY, in 1979. At the time, he was writing a relationship column for The Globe and he went to her law office to interview her about the acrimony that seems so inevitable a part of divorce. "She wouldn't go out with me for a year," he said yesterday. They met again at a party and he was "just enchanted" because she was "so beautiful and elegant and smart."
An unlikely couple in some ways -- she a legal expert and an urbanite, he a writer and an aspiring canoeist -- they meshed their different lifestyles and interests in a loving partnership that lasted for nearly 25 years. "I found her very sensitive and all the things a lawyer has to be -- and a very different kind of mind from mine."
After working as a lawyer for 13 years, she was appointed a provincial court judge at 41 by then Ontario attorney-general Ian SCOTT in David PETERSON's Liberal government. Journalist June CALLWOOD described Ms. KING "grinning with delight and nervousness" on her first day on the bench in an 1986 article for The Globe.
As a lawyer, she had successfully argued before the Ontario Supreme Court that the province's censorship law was unconstitutional. Despite that high profile, she welcomed the appointment to the bench. "A lawyer presents only one side of the case," she told Ms. CALLWOOD. " The judge can't be so cavalier. A judge is required to be sensible and responsible, but a judge is also able to be creative. I wanted to be able to make the decisions that I used to wish judges would make."
She delighted in gossip and loved to party, and she had a passion for crossword puzzles and matchmaking, frequently trying to fix people up, even those who were already committed to other partners. "Nobody minded because she was so engaging and funny," said Judge SACHS.
"She was one of these mothers who loved her kids for who they were," continued Judge SACHS. " She didn't want them to be little replicas of her, but she was always in their corner. She respected them as people and she was endlessly delighted by them."
Judge KING was diagnosed with breast cancer in November of 1999. She continued to work around treatment as the disease went into remission and then metastasized. She went on disability late in 2004 and made her last public appearance at a Boxing Day party, appearing frail but elegant in a black velvet dress. In her final days, her husband said, she watched both soap operas and the televised proceedings of the Gomery inquiry into the federal sponsorship scandal. She died at home in his arms.
Lynn KING was born on April 19, 1944, in Sudbury, Ontario She died on Friday of breast cancer at home in Toronto. She was 60. She is survived by her husband, M.T. (Terry) KELLY, her sons Jonah and Max, her mother, two siblings and their families. The funeral is today at Mount Pleasant Cemetery Chapel in Toronto.

Wilfred BIGELOW, Heart Surgeon: 1913-2005
Canadian doctor who was the first person to look inside a beating, human heart developed the pacemaker and pioneered the use of hypothermia in heart surgery
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Wednesday, March 30, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- The frigid Canadian winter of 1941, a Toronto hospital and a 28-year-old surgical intern who had just helped amputate a man's frostbitten fingers. Wilfred (Bill) BIGELOW's curiosity was piqued: How and why did extreme cold destroy human tissue?
The Manitoba-born University of Toronto graduate searched the available medical literature and, surprisingly in a country where winters are cold enough to kill, found little about frostbite.
Spurred by his surgery professor's challenge, Dr. BIGELOW finally found sources who knew something about frostbite. He learned that cold alone doesn't cause gangrene. Rather, tissue dies when blood stops moving, and people can tolerate extreme cold without damage as long as some blood continues to course through their veins.
But the Second World War intervened, and Dr. BIGELOW was soon off to serve as a front-line surgeon with the Canadian army in England and northwest Europe. On his return, he spent a year studying in Maryland at Johns Hopkins University Hospital, where pioneer heart operations on "blue babies" born with defective hearts were being performed, with mixed results. This prompted Dr. BIGELOW, with his prewar studies in localized hypothermia, to investigate whether it might be possible, as he would later write, to cool "the whole body, reduce the oxygen requirements, interrupt the circulation, and open the heart." If cold itself is not harmful to flesh and organs, he reasoned, then it would be safe to slow circulation to a near standstill so that surgeons could operate on nearly empty blood vessels.
Back at Toronto General Hospital in 1947, he and a small team obtained a room in the basement of the Banting Institute to carry on the research. Approval for the project had been granted in an atmosphere of some skepticism. At the time, a drop in body temperature was considered dangerous, if not lethal. As a first step, the team discovered that lowering the temperature of an extremity reduced its metabolism and oxygen requirements.
Then, in 1949, they made their first open-heart attempt. A dog was immersed in cold water inside a cut-down oil drum, and the temperature of its body lowered to 20 degrees. The animal's heart was pink and healthy, but it wasn't beating and its circulation was stopped for 15 minutes. Dr. BIGELOW tapped the heart tentatively with an electrical probe. All four chambers responded with one convulsive throb. He tapped it again. Another beat. The organ then continued beating without blood -- a first -- and then with blood. The dog was rewarmed and survived.
The episode led him to think that a device that could deliver a gentle jolt of some sort, without damaging the muscle, would enhance the hypothermia experiments.
That's how Dr. BIGELOW became known as one of the world's leading pioneers in the use of hypothermia in heart surgery and in the development of the pacemaker, which he co-invented with fellow Canadian cardiovascular superstar John Carter CALLAGHAN, and an electrical engineer, Jack HOPPS, found through the National Research Council in Ottawa.
In 1950, Dr. BIGELOW was the first person to look inside a living, beating human heart. He was astonished. The organ bore little resemblance to the diagrams and descriptions of his medical school lectures. "We knew there would be a valve flapping back and forth, but we weren't prepared for the dynamic ring that contracts forcefully in co-ordination with the valve. And the valve itself was far different from what we expected," he told journalist June CALLWOOD in 1985.
Dr. BIGELOW and Dr. CALLAGHAN electrified their colleagues when they presented their findings in 1950 at a meeting in Denver of the American Surgical Association. "There was no discussion," Dr. BIGELOW recalled years later. "It was one of the very few basic medical discoveries where no one stood up to say they'd done something similar."
Their presentation stimulated worldwide research and, two years later, a successful operation using hypothermia was performed in the United States. After this, "a steady stream of surgeons and scientists from around the world came to see our first Canadian open-heart surgery and to visit our Banting and Best Institute laboratory," Dr. BIGELOW reported, including 19 of Japan's top heart surgeons.
The first thing the Japanese doctors wanted to see was the old 25-gallon oil drum sawed in two that had served as the crucible for the canine experiment.
The next thing the visitors wanted to see was the world's first heart pacer -- a table-top contraption that weighed about 15 pounds and measured a foot long and several inches wide. The pacer, too, was co-developed by Dr. BIGELOW -- to stimulate the hearts of his experimental dogs when they were slowed down by the cooling.
By 1959, a Swedish doctor had used transistor circuitry and successfully implanted a pacemaker the size of a hockey puck beneath a patient's skin. But, for years, pacemakers were known everywhere as "Toronto machines."
(The invention of a lithium battery by a Buffalo electrical engineer in 1972 launched the pacemaker as a modern medical and technical miracle for countless thousands of people around the world. Today's pacemakers measure about four centimetres by three centimetres by half-a-centimetre thick and can be implanted in 30 minutes.)
About 1960, the two prevalent techniques of the day -- operations using heart-lung pumps and hypothermia -- were combined and used by surgeons around the world on a daily basis. In 1967, both methods were used by South African surgeon Christiaan Barnard, who performed the world's first transplant.
Today, ultra-cold chemical solutions are injected into the coronary arteries during surgery to protect the heart further.
Dr. BIGELOW pioneered several other cardiac surgical procedures and, in 1956, established the first complete three-year to four-year training program for cardiac surgeons. He headed the renowned cardiovascular surgical team at Toronto General Hospital for 20 years. He received two dozen major honours and awards, including the Order of Canada in 1981, and was named to the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame in 1997. He authored two books, Cold Hearts and Mysterious Heparin, and wrote more than 100 medical papers.
A self-effacing man, Dr. BIGELOW insisted that some of his early experiments failed dismally. For instance, he spent 10 years trying to discover how groundhogs were able to hibernate, but gained little except a deep respect for groundhogs. He called the invention of the pacemaker a "spinoff" from the hypothermia experiments.
All the same, he was a walking, talking hero to young Canadian doctors. To Anthony GRAHAM, now a cardiologist at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto and a professor of medicine at the University of Toronto, Bill BIGELOW was always a giant among surgeons. In the early 1970s, Dr. BIGELOW made it his business to quietly persuade potential recruits to sign on to the surgical staff at Toronto General Hospital and had invited Dr. GRAHAM, who had recently returned from studying in California, to drop by his office. The visit turned out to be a tour of Dr. BIGELOW's "collection" that he had laid out in hopes of sparking interest in young doctors.
"He had built a little museum in his office that was full of the gadgets he had made over the years," said Dr. GRAHAM. There, all lined up and neatly presented, were pacemakers in various stages of developments, early dilators and other devices that had played their part in medical history. "All of it was really neat to see. As a Canadian, he made a staggering contribution to his field. The things we see as commonplace today were revolutionary then."
As it turned out, Dr. GRAHAM did not join Dr. BIGELOW's staff, but the two men came to know each other through their involvement in the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada. "He was a gentle, caring man," said Dr. GRAHAM. " Not at all like the surgical personality we often think of as stereotypical."
For his part, Dr. BIGELOW was aware of a larger picture that lay beyond the day-to-day demands of a busy surgeon. "The moral responsibility of introducing a new operation is real," he wrote in Cold Hearts, the medical history of his work that was published in 1984. "I sometimes look back with a shudder. Working beyond the accepted limits of conventional medicine with few guidelines and no one to share responsibility or offer counsel was a very lonely feeling."
Wilfred Gordon BIGELOW was born in Brandon, Manitoba, on June 18, 1913. He died in Toronto on March 27, 2005, at 91. He leaves a daughter and three sons. He was predeceased by his wife, Ruth.
A memorial service is scheduled for April 23 at 2 p.m. at Toronto's Rosedale United Church.

Dorothy THOMAS stormed city hall
One of reformer group elected to council in 1972
She started poop and scoop program in Toronto
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Once upon a time, when Toronto was younger and believed in itself much, much more, a group of urban idealists stormed city hall. They called themselves reformers and they got into the council chamber by getting themselves elected. David CROMBIE was their leader, a man dubbed Toronto's "tiny perfect mayor" by the media of the day, and great things were expected and sometimes even delivered.
Now, these reformers were feisty and forward-thinking -- they were people like the late Colin VAUGHAN, an architect turned activist, lawyers Dale MARTIN and Karl JAFFARY, renegade thinker John SEWELL. And three of the newly minted aldermen -- for that was the job title of councillor in those days -- were women.
But only two -- Anne JOHNSTON and Dorothy THOMAS -- made it through the first term of office. JOHNSTON, who retired from municipal politics at the time of the last election, says that was only because they learned to be tough and because they had each other.
"I met her December 4, 1972, the night we were all elected. There was a spontaneous gathering of all the reformers at city hall and I remember Dorothy was wearing a hat and she came up to me and said: 'You and I are going to be Friends,'" she said.
They were a gang of citizen politicians who believed they were going to create a livable, even lovable city, but THOMAS was right about at least one thing that night: she and JOHNSTON were Friends until May 9 this year, when THOMAS died of cancer at Dorothy MIKOS was the proud daughter of very proud Hungarians. Her father, a tailor, and her mother, a talented seamstress, came to Canada in the 1930s. Theirs was the classic immigrant story, according to THOMAS's only child, Nye THOMAS, a lawyer and policy director of the Ipperwash provincial inquiry. His grandparents worked hard in Spadina Ave. sweatshops so their children would never have to and were thrilled when their daughter went to the University of Toronto.
THOMAS discovered journalism there -- it was the heyday of the varsity press -- as well as Ralph THOMAS, another journalist who would become a well-known Canadian filmmaker. Now living in California, he is best known here for Ticket To Heaven and The Terry Fox Story. Dorothy THOMAS left university before she graduated to work at the Toronto Star, where she was an arts reporter under the watch of the legendary entertainment editor Nathan COHEN.
She was a stay-at-home mom living in a fourplex on Wineva Ave. in the Beach when she joined up with a group of residents to successfully fight the construction of the Scarborough Expressway, which would have cut right through her neighbourhood.
THOMAS served two terms on Toronto council, from 1972 to 1976 and from 1981 to 1985, representing the old Ward 9 until ousted by a tag team of Paul CHRISTIE and Tom JAKOBEK. She had been one of the founders of the City of Toronto's Person's Day Award and had headed the Mayor's Task Force on the Status of Women.
"She was an excellent politician," said Barbara CAPLAN, a former Toronto city clerk. "She could build consensus across political ties."
JOHNSTON said her friend initiated Toronto's poop and scoop program, an achievement not among those noted on the condolence motion passed by council 10 days after THOMAS died, but not without its significance.
"She owned the public works committee," said JOHNSTON. " She was always the chair. She liked it because it was working on neighbour stuff."
Attractive and articulate, THOMAS was also blunt. "There was no filter with her, ever," her son said.
She made headlines when she and Alderman Dale MARTIN visited Calgary in 1985 for the 48th annual convention of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities. "The whole of downtown Calgary shows an amazing lack of planning," she said. Ralph KLEIN was the mayor then and he summoned photographers to record him standing in front of Calgary City Hall wearing boxing gloves and dissing the smug politicians from the East.
THOMAS didn't back down. "It's very ugly in Calgary," she told the Star. "It even makes (Metro planners) look good."
By then a single mom working punishing hours, THOMAS still made a point of being home every night to have dinner with her son. When she quit politics the first time, it was to spend time with Nye. When she left municipal politics for good, she moved to Euclid Ave. and got a job heading and helping clean up the Metro Licensing Commission, serving on the subsequent Toronto Licensing Tribunal until 2003.
A spectacular cook and a stylish hostess, she was often asked to donate her talents to fundraising events. A dinner party for four catered by Dorothy THOMAS was always a hot ticket at silent and not-so-silent auctions for the New Democratic Party. She was generous with her money as well as time, donating to 60 charities, including the Canadian Marmot Foundation (because she thought no one else would, her son said).
Her dinner table was a natural gathering place for Friends and their families. For 10 years she met one Wednesday night every other month with a group of powerful women such as June CALLWOOD, Doris ANDERSON and Sylvia OSTRY, and for twice as long as that, she was part of a poker player gang of Friends that included fellow activist Ethel TEITELBAUM, who often travelled with THOMAS.
"She was a complicated woman who attacked a lot of people who loved her. But we hung in there because she was loyal and wonderful company -- witty, generous. I always thought she was beautiful," said TEITELBAUM.
Last fall they had travelled to Sicily, one of THOMAS's must-see destinations. "We had a ball," said TEITELBAUM.
But THOMAS, who disliked doctors, was in pain and in fact had been suffering for some time. When she was finally diagnosed with cancer at Christmas, it was too late. THOMAS was admitted to Princess Margaret Hospital, where she had hundreds of visitors. "They said they had never seen anything like it," said CAPLAN, who was soon sending out regular emails about THOMAS to 125 recipients.
In recent years, THOMAS had moved to Port Hope and had been immersed in developing the Port Hope Ecology Garden.
THOMAS never got home again: she spent 17 weeks in hospital, latterly at the Toronto Grace where she celebrated her 67th birthday with Friends. She wasn't in pain, but she was unable to read or watch much television, and every morning she would wake up and be angry that she was still around. "She wanted to leave the arena," CAPLAN said.
She insisted both Nye and his wife, Karen, go to China on a long-awaited trip to bring home Mei Leigh, their adopted daughter and her first grandchild. She died two days after they left Canada.
Her many Friends are gathering tonight at 7 p.m. at the Gladstone Hotel for her memorial. There will be good food, wine, Friends reuniting, laughter and only four speeches. Her son says it is where and how she would have wanted it.

HUTCHINSON/HUTCHISON, Edna Elizabeth "Betty" (née MADILL)
It is with appropriate reverence and muted celebration that we announce the passing of our dear mother on March 14, 2005. In her 89th year, she died peacefully following a week of care at the William Osler Health Centre - Etobicoke Campus. We all have splendid memories of the contributions she made to so many in so many ways, not the least were her sons and daughters, 13 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren. She will be especially remembered by sons Frederick David and Gordon Douglas, and their wives Lorna and Leslie, son-in-law E. Joseph (Joe) CALNAN, her brother Harold Stuart MADILL and wife Josephine, and nephew Ralph HUTCHINSON/HUTCHISON. Daughters Elizabeth Ann and Barbara Jane CALNAN, and her brother Ralph MADILL, predeceased her. A top-ranked golfer, she shared her joy for the sport with the Humber Valley "Swingers" until she retired her clubs only a few years ago. She was also in high demand as a contract bridge partner with several clubs. According to her wishes, there will be no funeral service or reception at this time; her ashes will be interred at Victoria Lawn Cemetery in St. Catharines on July 2nd at which time a celebration of her life will take place. Anyone wishing to remember her, is invited to make a contribution to the Canadian Cancer Society (Research), or in her name with the charity of choice.

James Alexander CALVERT
By Maria KASSTAN, Monday, April 25, 2005, Page A14
Husband, father, artist's model, chess player, gardener. Born June 15, 1947, in Hamilton, Ontario Died October 1, 2004, of a heart attack, in Toronto, aged 57.
Jim spent his first 10 years on the family farm just outside of Dunnville, Ontario Then his father died of a heart attack at age 49, and this tragedy would leave its mark on Jim for the rest of his life.
There were probably only two nerdy, chess-playing youths in Dunnville in the 1960s and Jim was one of them. Seeking to understand his own obsessive, withdrawn personality, he read psychology and self-help books instead of high-school texts.
He learned a lot of theories about human nature but continued to remain a mystery to himself. Perhaps the closest he ever got to labelling his condition was Asperger's Syndrome, but that was quite late in life and didn't quite fit him, either.
We met outside the Brunswick Tavern in 1977. I was selling roses from a basket and he was hawking "tomorrow's paper" -- The Globe and Mail's early edition that came out at 10 p.m.
By 1979 this total introvert was bewildered to find himself in a relationship with me, struggling to be a stepfather to Emilie and Daniel, and looking forward with trepidation to the arrival of his own firstborn, Ian.
He was, as it turned out, a natural with babies (and dogs) but he could never quite comprehend fully formed verbal humans.
We worked as artists' models and began to grow a lot of our own fruits and vegetables. Jim was physically strong, dug a garden with speed and grace, and walked several miles almost every day. Our daughter, Flora, was born in 1987.
In recent years, we became involved in the urban agriculture movement. On the morning of October 1, we were on our way to two different venues of the North American Community Gardening Association Conference.
Jim was on the corner of Dundas and Bay at 8: 45 am pulling a bundle buggy full of literature for the Seeds of Diversity information table. He was heading into Toronto's Courtyard Marriott Hotel on Yonge Street just north of College Street. We may never know if he caught a Bay Street bus or started walking, nor exactly at what moment he arrived at 40 College Street and, feeling unwell, lay down on a bench.
That bright morning, the neighbourhood was bustling.
When two police officers found Jim, they may have assumed he'd been there too long. A 911 call was placed from inside the building by a third officer. The ambulance arrived four minutes later. By then it really was too late for Jim, and all our dreams went with him.
Jim experienced time differently than most of us do. The past was all golden nostalgia, poignant vignettes and missed opportunities. The present was an explosion of frustration or endless tantric bliss. He never quite grasped the future in concrete terms. For instance, he could never make plans for next week or even tomorrow. But he often experienced a general vague prescience about "how things would work out."
This was sometimes expressed as brash confidence or even grim fatalism.
On his last morning, for the first time I can recall, he dressed all in black, and like Paladin, the Sixties television cowboy hero, rode off into the sunset.
Jim lived his life as if he had all the time in the world. I always hoped he knew that this was so.
Low blood pressure, normal cholesterol, a lithe and slender body, all seemed to promise a long life. His body was his temple. It was my temple, too.
Maria KASSTAN is Jim's wife.

BUTCHERD, Stanley H. (April 14, 1924-April 26, 2005)
Passed away suddenly at Welland General Hospital at the age of 81. Stan leaves behind his loving wife, best friend and life-long travel companion, Dorothy (née DEARING,) many close Friends and colleagues.
After serving as a Flying Officer in the Royal Canadian Air Force, Stan graduated from the University of Toronto School of Architecture in 1950. A Fellow of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada, and past president of the Ontario Association of Architects (1969), Stan practised architecture for over 54 years - an achievement that was recognized by the Ontario Association of Architects in 2004. Stan's career began in Toronto in the offices of noted architect John LANGE, before forming a private practice with Bob CALVERT. In 1957, he moved to Port Colborne to establish his own company. He was a founding president of the Niagara Chapter of the Ontario Association of Architects, founding member of the Port Colborne L.A.C.A.C., and was responsible for the design of many civic buildings throughout the Niagara region.
Throughout his life, Stan was an inspiration and mentor to many younger architects. Nowhere was this more evident than when he formed a partnership toward the end of his career with Robert MacKENZIE. Their firm subsequently joined Quartek, a multi- discipline design and engineering company, where Stan continued to practise until finally being allowed to retire at age 80.
With Dorothy, he shared a love of travel, music, and art that endeared them to Friends of all ages. In the glint of his eyes, one discovered his sense of humour and quiet intelligence. His profound commitment to citizenry led Stan to become a President of the Port Colborne Lion's Club, a member of the Police/ Citizen's Advisory Committee, and an active member of the community's First Lutheran Church.
Predeceased by his parents, Nellie and Harry (of Eastbourne, England), he will be greatly missed by his wife, Dorothy, and their Godchildren, Don RHYNAS (Jane MacDONALD) of London, Ann SMALE of Kitchener (Wayne MOORE), Jane SMALE (Anthony VANLEEUWEN), and Peter SMALE (Nancy BENITZ) of Toronto.
Friends will be received at the Port Colborne Chapel of the Davidson Funeral Homes 135 Clarence St. on Thursday and Friday 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral services will be held Saturday, April 30 at 2: 00 pm at the First Evangelical Lutheran Church, 688 Elm Street, Port Colborne, followed by burial at St. Paul's Lutheran Cemetery and a reception. In lieu of flowers or gifts, please make donations to Doctors without Borders, 2200 Yonge Street, Toronto, or to the Welland Humane Society.
