Community builder dies after battling cancer
Memorial service set for Thursday in Wasaga
By Michael GENNINGS, Page 8
Dennis ZANARDO, a man who not only built hundreds of homes in Wasaga Beach but invested in its community infrastructure, died Monday following what family members say was a short and courageous six-week battle with liver cancer.
He was 51.
Marilyn RUTTAN, his companion for much of the last 12 years, said that during his fight with cancer he was always optimistic about the outcome!
RUTTAN said ZANARDO, a Brampton native who enjoyed some success as a high school basketball player before entering the family business, will be missed by a number of people.
"He was definitely loved," she said.
Wasaga Beach mayor Cal PATTERSON recalled ZANARDO, a close friend, on Monday afternoon.
"I think his character is what will be remembered," he said. "Dennis was one of those larger than life guys.
PATTERSON said that ZANARDO, a jovial six-foot, four-inch man, loved Wasaga Beach and its people. The mayor added that ZANARDO, who owned part of Zancor Homes, was always trying to find a way to better the community.
"Dennis felt he could never do enough," PATTERSON said.
His touch can be found in countless places around town. For exam pie, PATTERSON said that ZANARDO donated the landscaping for the new library when it opened about 10 years ago. As well, he donated the building in which the Wasaga Beach Chamber of Commerce is now located.
ZANARDO also donated the brick canteen building at the Wasaga Beach Sports Park and was a big financial contributor each year to the Carly Patterson Memorial Golf Tournament.
"There are so many things Dennis did for Wasaga Beach," PATTERSON said.
His generosity extended beyond the Beach. ZANARDO also gave financially to Collingwood General and Marine Hospital.
One of his favourite annual things was the Christmas party he threw for Friends and owners of Zancor houses. ZANARDO's one condition was that people bring a toy for children of less fortunate families.
"I spent Saturday with him. I was there about seven hours. Dennis was a really good friend. My children called him Uncle Dennis and when my daughter died he was right there by my side," PATTERSON explained.
His 22-year-old daughter, Carly, died from Hodgkins Disease in ZANARDO and PATTERSON first met about 16 years ago shortly after the developer began work in the community. Along with building homes here and giving back to Wasaga, ZANARDO tried to win a council seat in the early years but failed, the mayor remembered.
PATTERSON said he learned of ZANARDO's death early Monday morning, around 4 a.m. He said that he went over to the house to be with RUTTAN.
Former mayor Walter BORTHWICK also spoke fondly of ZANARDO on Monday. He said their relationship started off professionally about 15 years ago but added it quickly developed into a Friendship.
"Dennis was such a warm and generous individual," BORTHWICK said. "I'm sure to some, that because he was a big fellow who worked in construction, he seemed a bit rough around the edges but he was a very good man."
It was just a week ago. that BORTHWICK said he popped in to see ZANARDO.
"We had a good chat and did a lot of catching up. Quite frankly I knew he wasn't well but I was really surprised when I got the phone call this morning."
BORTHWICK later added that "Dennis was one of those people who made it very easy to remember the good times now that he is no longer with us."
Paul PULLMAN was also Friends with ZANARDO, who people lovingly called Dennis the Menace. He said they met through a real estate broker in 1992 when PULLMAN, a freight broker, moved to Wasaga.
"We just hit it off," PULLMAN said. He recalled they often went for lunch, would play cards, visit Casino Rama near Orillia or just get together for some drinks.
"He was a gregarious guy who had a heart of gold," PULLMAN said. "He was always helping people out when they were in trouble."
PULLMAN noted he last saw ZANARDO Sunday.
"He couldn't really talk but he understood what we said. We communicated by holding hands and I talked to him."
Simcoe-Grey member of provincial parliament Jim WILSON said Monday he was saddened to learn of ZANARDO's death.
"Dennis was a big supporter for all of my (political) years and yet he never asked for anything. He was a big fellow and his heart matched his size," WILSON said. "He was much too young to die."
Former Wasaga clerk Eric COLLINGWOOD remarked that from his first meeting he knew that the man would do Wasaga proud.
"His dreams were big, the projects were even bigger but being guided by the goodness of his heart many of these dreams and projects became reality." The Town of Wasaga Beach has grown and prospered from just knowing 'Dennis the Menace'," said COLLINGWOOD.
Despite ZANARDO's fun-loving and hard working ethic, he was also a big reader, RUTTAN said.
"I don't think many people knew that," she added.
Every day ZANARDO would read The Toronto Star, The Globe and Mail, The National Post and The Toronto Sun.
She said he also read local community newspapers in the area.
"He always wanted to see them the day they came out," she said.
ZANARDO enjoyed a good relationship with the Metroland newspaper chain, which includes The Sun. He often called the newspaper in the late 1990s to let reporters know of charity events he was corporately supporting, but shied away himself from the limelight.
A service in memory of ZANARDO is scheduled for Thursday at the RecPlex, 1724 Mosley Street, from 1 a.m. to 2 p.m. The family asks that donations in memory of ZANARDO be made to the RecPlex. ZANARDO was on the committee that oversees fundraising for the multi-use facility,
ZANARDO is survived by his mother Jean, sister Nadine and brother Eric.

SARAZIN taught art of life
By Ian GILLESPIE, Free Press Columnist, Sat, December 3, 2005
The obituary says Barry SARAZIN taught radio broadcasting at Fanshawe College. But with all due respect, I think they got that a bit wrong.
SARAZIN died Tuesday at Parkwood Hospital after a six-year battle with prostate cancer. He left a wife, two children and two grandchildren. He was 58 years old.
SARAZIN's radio career started in Blind River, then bounced him through studios in Sault Ste. Marie, Ottawa, Smiths Falls and Oshawa. He had the requisite "radio voice" -- that perfectly modulated tone that, when it's done well, can flow from a plastic box and into your head like a lover's whisper.
Some radio guys have that -- and sometimes, that's enough. But SARAZIN had something more.
In 1973, he landed at Fanshawe College in the communication arts program. Five years later, he helped launch the college station CIXX-FM -- popularly known as 6X-FM. It was the first time an FM licence had been granted to a Canadian college.
He taught at Fanshawe for 28 years, for a while taking the role of program co-ordinator. Along the way, he handled the weekend morning duties on CFPL-AM 980 -- an aspect that added a real-life edge of experience to his classroom sessions.
Bob COLLINS, co-ordinator of broadcast programs at Fanshawe College, figures SARAZIN taught more than 1,300 students during those years.
After SARAZIN was diagnosed with cancer in 1999, he accepted a reduced workload. Although it sounds as if there was nothing "reduced" about the impact he had.
"I know he was standing in front of the class and suffering," says COLLINS. " But he was still committed to delivering a quality education. You just had to watch the man to see how he set the tone for his life. It was admirable."
Glynis TUCKER was one of SARAZIN's students. Today, TUCKER handles corporate communications for London's city hall. But 17 years ago, she was a cocky college student who got one of SARAZIN's famous "blue letters" -- a typewritten disciplinary note delivered in a blue envelope.
"He was like a captain," she says, adding he often spoke of his love of sailing. "He was the captain of his ship, the captain of the program and the captain of his life."
BOB-FM announcer Skye SYLVAIN, who studied at Fanshawe in the late '80s, remembers SARAZIN as a man with "an elegant demeanour" who taught his students about radio, yes -- but something else, too.
"He was trying to offer us everything he'd experienced and funnel it back to us in a way that would help us navigate whatever perils we'd face," says SYLVAIN.
Deborah O'GRADY works as an announcer at BOB-FM and a human resources representative at a local medical lab. She remembers SARAZIN as a formal, reserved but passionate man who was known to sport an ascot at social events.
"He was very much a father figure to us, and some people rebelled against that," says O'GRADY, who studied with SARAZIN 20 years ago. "But then two or three years out of college, we realized, wait a second -- Barry knew what he was talking about."
O'GRADY recalls the day SARAZIN spent an hour teaching students how to budget their time and money. O'GRADY says "we all sort of groaned" because they didn't think they needed to know that stuff.
But of course, they did.
Brad GIBB is music director at FM-96. He remembers SARAZIN as a "well-mannered, proper guy" who'd remove his eyeglasses, wave them in the air and breathe in through his teeth before he told you what you'd done wrong.
"It sounds really cliched, but he really was an inspiration," says GIBB. "And not just how to be a good worker in the broadcast business, but to be a good person in general."
In an e-mail, longtime Fanshawe co-worker Ray WILMOT recalls the day SARAZIN told him about the cancer that would ultimately take his life.
"There was I, sitting across from him at a picnic table on the grass outside the cafeteria, crying," writes WILMOT. "And there was Barry, reaching over to grip my forearm, comforting me."
Like I said, the obituary stated SARAZIN taught broadcasting. But it sounds as if he taught people a bit more than that.

MARTIN, James (1915-2005)
James MARTIN (Jimmy,) beloved and loving father of Cecilia LITTLETON (née MARTIN,) father-in-law of Bill LITTLETON, and grandfather to their children Scot and Monica LITTLETON, passed away Monday, December 5, 2005 from heart failure at the age of 90 years, in Grande Prairie, Alberta. Born in Glasgow, Scotland, he came to Ottawa, Canada in 1931. In 1945 he joined the Canadian Armed Forces in Montreal. After retiring from the Army in 1965, Dad worked at Eaton Automotive and Lawson Business Forms as a Shipper/Receiver in London, Ontario, until he retired in 1980. Dad was pre-deceased by his Mother in 1955. We do not know when his father passed away; Dad last saw his father and his half-brothers and half-sister in Scotland in 1956. In 1968, he buried Monica Marie (née GRABOWSKI,) his loving wife of 17 years, and mother of their daughter, in London, Ontario. In 1989, he buried Florence (née COLLINS,) his next wife, after nine fun-filled years together. His older brother, John MARTIN, died in Belleville in November 1990. John and his wife Pearl (née MILLIKEN) had no children; Pearl died in 1988 in Ottawa. In 1999 Jimmy moved from London to Grande Prairie, Alberta, to be closer to his daughter and her family. He leaves many to mourn him: his daughter Cecilia LITTLETON and her family Monica's relatives; Flo's descendents; and his many Friends, especially the Kenwood Crescent crowd. We will miss him greatly. Funeral Service will be held Friday, December 9 at 2 p.m. at the Oliver Funeral Chapel, 10005 - 107 Avenue, Grande Prairie, Alberta.

COLLINS, Frederick, 1988
Thursday, February 3, 2005 - Page S7
Lawyer and jurist born in London, Ontario, in 1902. After receiving his law degree from McGill University in 1924, he became a specialist in banking and tax law. In 1946, he was appointed to Quebec Superior Court, where he was to make his most famous ruling. In 1950, he upheld the Quebec Padlock Law, which had been introduced in 1937 by then premier Maurice Duplessis in an effort to suppress meetings by Jehova's Witnesses. Later it was used to outlaw Communist groups. The law authorized the attorney-general, a post held by Mr. Duplessis, to evict tenants and padlock a building if it were suspected of being used for Communist propaganda. In 1957, the Supreme Court of Canada struck down the Padlock Law. Mr. COLLINS also defended provincial laws that obliged women to seek their husband's authorization when they wanted to sell property, arguing the laws protected women from their husbands' debts.

Winston Lee COLLINS
By Andrew SMITH, Friday, September 2, 2005, Page A18
Teacher, journalist, epicure. Born August 18, 1937, in Wisconsin. Died February 20, in Toronto, from POEMS syndrome, aged 67.
The clapboard farmhouse in rural Wisconsin where Winston was born sits a stone's throw from a country road on a rise of ragged grass. "It hasn't been very well-maintained," Winston's sister Vergeane said. "Our mother always kept a nice yard."
Winston often talked of his mother's gardening expertise. He also spoke of his love of cows. An old snapshot portrays a youthful Winston wearing denim pants too short in the leg, holding the halter of a Holstein calf standing by his side. Winston's familiar smile, which disarmed strangers and welcomed Friends, beams with an intensity made more startling by the obvious impermanence of the bent and ragged photo.
The Collins farm lay on the fringes of Mount Horeb (pop. 1,000). Because of the biblical root of its name, or perhaps because of the strong Norwegian traditions in which Winston's family and the town are steeped, Mount Horeb became a somewhat mythic place in the minds of Winston's Toronto Friends. School yearbooks that sister Vergeane (keeper of the family history) has carry pictures of a teenaged Winston engaged in academic pursuits. There's no evidence of Winston's interest in sports, but he was never as much a participant as an avid fan (although he played an impressive game of tennis).
In the mid-1950s Winston left Mount Horeb for the University of Michigan to pursue his interest in poetry and literature. His curiosity about the world led him to various summer jobs: a deck hand on a Mississippi barge; a barman at a resort in upstate New York (where Groucho Marx nicknamed him "Henry James" after Winston settled a bet in Groucho's favour as to who wrote Washington Square).
In 1959 he began studies at the University of Toronto, where he later acquired a PhD. He attended Massey College in its inaugural year. Winston taught at the University of Cincinnati and at Princeton before returning to the University of Toronto as a teacher in the late 1960s. When I met Winston in London in 1973, he had a habit of reading poetry aloud in his sonorous voice. It seemed ironic that this unpretentious North American could so effortlessly bring to life English poetry that, until then, had seemed stuffy and old-fashioned. It was a talent that was much appreciated by his students at University College.
In 1977, Winston took up journalism. A lover of good food, Winston wrote a weekly restaurant review for the Toronto Star. He was an excellent cook whose maxim was that "it need not take long to make good food." He had the same unaffected approach to his appearance. A friend said that Winston "put himself into a shabby corduroy jacket, a work shirt and denims and looked like he stepped from a Ralph Lauren catalogue. That great hair, long dramatic face and self-effacing air made us envious." Winston was asked to write about the racehorse Northern Dancer, a subject that combined his passion for sport and his appreciation of quality livestock. His awe and admiration for the sheer beauty of the thoroughbred horse seemed to combine the urbane and sophisticated man that Winston had become with the kind humility and gentle disposition of the boy who grew up on a Holstein dairy farm in rural Wisconsin.
Winston was diagnosed with the rare and crippling multisystemic disease called POEMS syndrome in 1994. For more than a decade his travails were more than most people could bear, but Winston managed to sustain his peaceful mien and his lively curiosity. Under the most trying of circumstances he maintained unwavering dignity and astonishing good humour.
Andrew is the partner of Winston COLLINS.

I Remember -- Winston COLLINS
By Stephen ZEIFMAN, Wednesday, September 7, 2005. Page S9
Toronto educator and writer Stephen Zeifman writes about Winston COLLINS, who was the subject of a Lives Lived essay on September In my fourth year at the University of Toronto in 1969-70, Winston taught a course in modern poetry. By the spring, when our final paper was due, I was extremely tired of writing conventional essays and asked him whether I could do a long poem instead. He smiled his wonderful smile, offering a touch of professorial cynicism, and said okay. The poem came in at 164 lines and he liked it very much, suggesting that I send it off to Jacob Zilber at Prism International magazine. Later that summer, I moved to France to pursue my dream of being a writer. In September, a cheque for $5 arrived from Prism, which had published the poem. It was my first professional publication and, for at least a year, fuelled the conviction that I had greatness as a poet. In a few weeks, my third novel will be published. Winston played a real role in my ability to sustain belief in myself, as a writer, in the face of years of indifference from those in the business.

John founded the law firm of Hamilton Torrance in 1946 and specialized in air transport law, travelling regularly across the country and often around the world. He served on a number of corporate boards, particularly Canadian Pacific Airlines. Even after John retired from the law firm, he continued as special counsel to Canadian Pacific Air and it successor Canadian Airlines. He didn't really retire until after serving as a Commissioner on the Royal Commission on National Passenger Transportation from 1989 to 1992. He was a Queen's Counsel and a Juris Doctor from the University of Toronto. He participated in fund drives over many years for various charities and served on public institutions, including two hospitals in Toronto. He was especially proud of his Order of Canada. John loved to build things, designing office buildings and renovating houses (which Gwen decorated) and cottages in Muskoka. He loved to meet people and made great new Friends right up to the end of his life. John had been ill for a few months, but was still interested in hearing about family and Friends (both old and new) and current events. The family wishes to thank his doctors and the caring staff at Briton House Retirement Centre, 720 Mount Pleasant Rd. At his request, there will be no funeral service. A private get-together will be held with Friends at a later date.

HAMILTON, John Borden
Died November 24, 2005 at age 92 at home. Beloved husband for 66 years of Gwen (née MORISON.) Much loved father of Lyn and Cheryl HAMILTON (Michael CUSHING.) Brother-in-law of Harry and the late Bette COLLINS and uncle to Peter, Kelly and Nicki. John was predeceased many years ago by his sister Ruby. He was a decorated veteran of the Second World War, a Progressive Conservative Member of Parliament (York West) from 1954 to 1962 and a distinguished lawyer. John founded the law firm of Hamilton Torrance in 1946 and specialized in air transport law, travelling regularly across the country and often around the world. He served on a number of corporate boards, particularly Canadian Pacific Airlines. Even after John retired from the law firm, he continued as special counsel to Canadian Pacific Air and its successor Canadian Airlines. He didn't really retire until after serving as a Commissioner on the Royal Commission on National Passenger Transportation from 1989 to 1992. He was a Queen's Counsel and a Juris Doctor from the University of Toronto. He participated in fund drives over many years for various charities and served on public institutions including two hospitals in Toronto. He was especially proud of his Order of Canada. John loved to build things, designing office buildings and renovating houses (which Gwen decorated) and cottages in Muskoka. He loved to meet people and made great new Friends right up to the end of his life. John had been ill for a few months, but was still interested in hearing about family and Friends (both old and new) and current events. The family wishes to thank his doctors and the caring staff at Briton House Retirement Centre, 720 Mount Pleasant Rd. At his request, there will be no funeral service. A private get-together will be held with Friends at a later date.
