John Stephen BASSETT
By Sherry COMAN, Thursday, April 14, 2005, Page A26
Filmmaker, activist, brother, partner, friend. Born June 23, 1958, in Toronto. Died March 16, of liver cancer, aged 46.
Hanging on the walls of a small downtown apartment are canvasses filled with brilliant splashes of colour, signed mysteriously "Jasper," the name of John BASSETT's Scottish grandfather. The fact that few knew John was a painter speaks to this man's modesty. In 46 years, he made deep Friendships, cherished lovers, lovingly observed the passages of life and death within his own family, was professionally acute and creative as a filmmaker, contributed to Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome awareness, was for a time an activist for gay marriage long before its current vogue, all with the deepest sense of humour, love and commitment.
John was born in Toronto and lived his whole life in the city he loved, rarely leaving it except for vacations or to work as a filmmaker. Unlike most gay teenagers of the 1970s, he fell easily into his own identity. He was lucky to have a supportive and embracing family, who remember him sunbathing on the roof listening to disco music, or bringing to the cottage Judy Garland and Liza Minnelli albums they knew by heart when the week was over. He was also a good brother, carrying sister Marilyn on his shoulders when she grew tired, helping brother Mark learn the lessons of life in the schoolyard and later babysitting for another sister, Deborah. Throughout his life, he was discreet and kept a secret well. Siblings confided in him, knowing they were safe. And adults poured their hearts out to him.
John attended Ryerson and studied film and photography. He joined a health documentary film Company and produced films about controversial health issues. It was while working on such a film about the immune system in the early 1990s that John first learned of his Human Immunodeficiency Virus status.
Taking advantage of being in Southern California to talk to cutting-edge health professionals, he later chose to under-medicate himself at a time when aggressive medication was believed to be the best treatment. By constantly researching, trying new things, exploring alternative remedies, he bought himself many years.
John met his first life partner, Paul, in the mid 1980s. Paul, a professional decorator for retail chains, was also a deacon in the Metropolitan Community Church in Toronto, which ministers to the gay community. In 1989, John and Paul had a Holy Union, something which drew attention from the media. John was ill-at-ease with such celebrity and wasn't sure how to respond to a columnist who referred to him as a "moustached Ken doll come to life." The deep devotion of John and Paul was broken only by Paul's death in 1995. John also lost his mother, Shirley, that year. Father, Stan, had died suddenly five years previously.
His final years were spent coping with liver cancer at Princess Margaret Hospital where he became a test patient, often volunteering for procedures that could not directly benefit him but which might allow them "to find something." In the middle of his own pain and anguish, he was most moved by the suffering of others. He appreciated what life meant to all people, not just himself.
John cherished the Friends he had known all his life. The same group that went disco dancing in his teens was there with his family at his hospital bed in the last days. His great ironic and dry sense of humour was how he commented on the world, for he otherwise never criticized others. He would smirk, get a look, offer an acerbic comment, but never judge someone. His last years were filled with the joy of his life with partner, Frank. John died at Princess Margaret Hospital, held by his sister, and listening to the gentle strains of Lena Horne's great ballads.
Sherry COMAN is John's friend.

I Remember -- Heath LAMBERTS
By Donald COMBE, Tuesday, March 15, 2005 Page S7
Donald COMBE of Niagara-on-the-Lake writes about Heath LAMBERTS, whose obituary ran on March 5.
Heath LAMBERTS' 1982 and 1983 performances of Cyrano were so impressive, and his comprehension of the character so complete and original that I attended 12 performances. Each time he gave something newly insightful to the role. So great was his skill that he turned this classic hero into "everyman." He understood the humanity and fragility of this man who dared to love with no hope of any return of that love.
Heath's greatest gift was his humanity. Shortly after this performance there began for me a warm and personal relationship with Heath. It is an important and lasting Friendship that has transcended his death. My sadness was that Heath was never able to give us Hamlet. He could have shown us the "everyman" that is Hamlet.
He was a guest in my home on numerous occasions and his visits often coincided with the Loch Sloy Highland Games in Fort Erie, Ontario Heath was caught up in the tradition and ceremony and marched with the bands. There were many "private" performances for me and Friends, little vignettes of human foibles.
They were powerful observations of the human condition and roles as important as Cyrano.

COMFORT, Charles Fraser, 1994 -- Died This Day
Wednesday, July 6, 2005, Page S7
Artist born on July 22, 1900, in Edinburgh.
After immigrating with his family to Winnipeg, he went to school there and studied art. As a young man, he went to New York and to Holland for further studies and then returned home to work as a designer in Toronto. As part of the generation that followed the Group of Seven, he was one of the founding members of the Canadian Group of Painters. A friend of A.Y. JACKSON and Lawren HARRIS, he was heir to the contemporary styles that the group had introduced to Canada, continuing their bold handling of paint and choice of colour. He was best known for his brooding landscapes, farm scenes and portraits executed during the Depression. His most famous work is Young Canadian, a dark 1932 portrait of fellow painter Carl SCHAEFER set against a rural landscape. Today, it is part of the University of Toronto collection. He also designed several public murals, including the frieze on the facade of the old Toronto Stock Exchange building and a mural on the trading floor. He was a director of the National Gallery of Canada from 1960 to 1965 and made an officer of the Order of Canada in 1972.
