McEWAN, Jean
Jean McEWAN, wife of Bob, mother of John and Jessica, and daughter-in-law of Lois, died at her home on Grosvenor Street on the 31st of August. Jean grew up in Elma Township as the much loved daughter of Archie WHITE/WHYTE and Hildred STRUTHERS. Their farm was isolated and Jean had few playmates, and this may explain her deeply intuitive understanding of the rhythms of nature. She was a quietly cerebral woman, equally at home editing John's history papers, playing fiddle music with Jessica, or planning flower gardens with Bob. She leaves behind her older brother Murray and his wife Elizabeth, many Friends, and the McEwan in-laws: Lou and John CULL, Loiey (and the late Ken) MOIR, and Terry and Linda McEWAN. There will be no visitation or funeral. Jean will be buried in the Saint Marys cemetery by her family where she will rest among the Hearn ancestors near her father-in-law Gordon, and where she will wait gently for her Robert. For those wishing to offer condolences, Bob, Jessica and John would welcome cards of sympathy. The rainbow comes and goes, And lovely is the Rose, {...} But yet... -Wordsworth

CULLEN helped put Sarnia on map
The former Sarnia-Lambton member of Parliament and federal judge died Tuesday at 78.
By Megan O'TOOLE, Free Press Reporter
Bud CULLEN, the man who introduced the Unemployment Insurance Act and helped establish Sarnia as a worldwide petrochemical centre, died Tuesday 78.
Yesterday, those who knew CULLEN remembered the integrity of the former Sarnia-Lambton member of Parliament and his life of public service.
CULLEN was accessible, laid-back, warm and friendly. He was a "people person" who genuinely cared about creating a more fair society, said Sarnia Mayor Mike BRADLEY, who served as CULLEN's campaign manager and executive assistant in the early 1980s.
"It was not his style to personalize politics," BRADLEY said yesterday.
CULLEN had been ill for some time.
He was first elected to Parliament in 1968, the year Pierre Trudeau became prime minister.
Ray CURRAN was vice-president of the Sarnia Liberal association at the time, and chaired the meeting at which CULLEN won his nomination.
"He was always one of the folks," CURRAN recalled. "He was very responsive to the needs of the community."
Trudeau named CULLEN to cabinet in 1974 as revenue minister. A year later, CULLEN was moved to Immigration, where he remained for four years.
His Liberal comrades and supporters recall a number of causes CULLEN pushed for that have had lasting impacts.
The Cullen-Couture Immigration Agreement, an initiative CULLEN spearheaded, gave Quebec the ability to select its own immigrants and became "a model for the federal government," BRADLEY said.
CULLEN was also instrumental in pushing for changes to the Immigration Act that allowed Vietnamese war refugees to more easily seek shelter in Canada.
"The changes he made... created an avenue for more good people to come to Canada and build it into the great nation it is today," said Jack FULLERTON, one of the founders of the weekly Sarnia Gazette.
During his tenure at the Gazette, FULLERTON, a longtime Liberal, endorsed CULLEN through his columns.
"He served his riding well," FULLERTON said.
CULLEN retired from Parliament in June 1984 and was named a judge to the Federal Court of Canada two months later.
"He made a number of landmark decisions, standing up for human rights and protecting Canadians through the Charter," BRADLEY said.
He pointed specifically to a controversial decision CULLEN made in 1999, quashing a certificate that allowed a man to be detained without explanation for "security reasons."
Most of all, though, BRADLEY recalls CULLEN as a kind and generous friend. "He was like a second father to me."
CULLEN's funeral is 11 a.m. Saturday in Ottawa.

Ottawa professor dies attempting Everest
Mountaineering expert, 63, 'really lived life to the fullest'
By Catherine CULLEN, Saturday, April 30, 2005, Page A3
A University of Ottawa professor whose goal was to become the oldest Canadian to scale Mount Everest died of an apparent heart attack yesterday, on the mountain he was determined to conquer.
Friends and colleagues of Sean EGAN said they were shocked and saddened by the sudden passing of the 63-year-old, who was an expert in fitness and mountaineering.
"This was such a surprise for us. We just felt that there was no real fear whatsoever, that he was capable of doing this," said Blaine HOSHIZAKI, director of the School of Human Kinetics at the University of Ottawa, and a former colleague of Dr. EGAN's.
Dr. EGAN spoke to The Globe and Mail via satellite phone from the Everest base camp last week and talked about the challenges of climbing the world's largest mountain.
He said the acidity of the atmosphere was making it difficult to digest food. "We'll try and do the best we can and if it gets too extreme, we'll stop," said Dr. EGAN, who was grappling with a respiratory illness at the time.
Despite the challenges, he said he was focused on attaining his goal.
"You've just got to take it one step at a time. Think of the step ahead and not the entire journey."
This was Dr. EGAN's third trip to the mountain, but his first attempt to climb to the 8,848-metre peak. He planned to leave the rest of his team behind and make the final climb with only a Sherpa guide.
Last week, a respiratory ailment forced him to start heading back down the mountain. Yesterday, he decided he should return to Kathmandu for rest and medical attention. A helicopter was called because Dr. EGAN didn't feel well enough to make the hike to another camp.
Even then, he and fellow climber Harold MAH were optimistic that he would return in a few days and make the climb.
As he was heading toward the helicopter, Dr. EGAN collapsed. The exact cause of his death is still unknown.
Mr. MAH expressed his shock at Dr. EGAN's sudden passing in an on-line diary about the expedition.
"Everyone cried. Sherpas cried; climbers cried; I cried. How could this man who was so strong, die so quickly?" he wrote.
It's tragic Dr. EGAN died in a place that is expected to be safe, said Tim REDPATH, a spokesman for Kanatek Technologies, the company sponsoring Dr. EGAN's climb. Mr. REDPATH had been communicating with the climbing team on a daily basis.
"You know Everest is a dangerous spot and people die every year, but it's on the mountain, not coming down," he said.
Dr. EGAN had been preparing for the climb for three years. He had also visited Everest before -- in 1998 he came as a hiker, and in 2000, he came on a research mission.
"I'm always on the move," he told The Globe last week, adding that he worked out five or six days a week and had been climbing stairs, cycling, lifting weights and hiking to prepare for the climb.
In January, he climbed the highest summit in South America, the 6,962-metre Mount Aconcagua.
He taught fitness classes for 27 years as a professor of human kinetics at the University of Ottawa (including swimming, running, aerobics, muscular training and relaxation), and said he tried hard to practice what he preached.
"I never ask [my students] to do anything I can't do myself," he said.
In addition to setting a new Canadian record for the oldest person to climb Everest, Dr. EGAN was trying to raise money for Child Haven, a charity that supports women and children in several countries.
He was a native of County Clare, Ireland, and was a boxing and kickboxing champion in his home country and France, despite starting the sport "late," he said, at the age of 23. "Most Irish kids love boxing for some reason. That's why they call them the fighting Irish," he joked last week.
He had a PhD in sport psychology and motor learning and had published a book, The Psychology of Health: In Pursuit of Wellness.
Dr. EGAN was "a bon vivant" whose death came as "a horrific shock" to his family and colleagues, said long-time friend Frank REARDON.
"For me he really characterized someone who really lived life to the fullest," Dr. HOSHIZAKI said. "He took no prisoners. He challenged himself and he enjoyed the opportunity to meet these challenges. When I look at this Mount Everest attempt, this was just another part of his life, it was not something that would define it."
Dr. EGAN is survived by his two children, Seamus and Anna, both students at the University of Ottawa.

Bud CULLEN, Politician And Judge: 1927-2005
Liberal loyalist served in Pierre Trudeau's first cabinet only to be dumped when the party returned to power in 1980. A self-described 'front-bench backbencher,' he was later named to the Federal Court
Canadian Press; Globe and Mail archives; staff, Thursday, July 7, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- Affable, likeable and reliable, he was a Trudeau man to the last. Even when dumped from cabinet, former immigration minister Bud CULLEN, was a loyalist.
"Bud was a good and decent man who always fought the good fight with decency and civility," his friend Mike BRADLEY and former campaign manager said Tuesday. Now the mayor of Sarnia, Ontario, Mr. BRADLEY once served as executive assistant to Mr. CULLEN, who represented the Sarnia-Lambton riding in southwestern Ontario from 1968 to 1979 and again from 1980 to 1984.
Mr. CULLEN was first appointed to the Trudeau cabinet in 1974 initially, as Minister of National Revenue and, then, as Minister of Employment and Immigration from 1976 to 1979.
As minister, he helped introduce the Immigration Act of 1976 which, for the first time, included a provision for private sponsorship of refugees. He also presided over amendments to the Unemployment Insurance Act in 1977 to increase work incentives and fairness among different economic regions.
Then disaster struck both the Liberal Party in general and Mr. CULLEN personally. In the May, 1979 general election, he was among about 10 Liberal cabinet ministers from Southern Ontario to lose their seats to the Tories led by Joe CLARK. Mr. CULLEN's Sarnia riding was something of a bellwether. Earlier on election night, as results dribbled in, the defeat of Mr. CULLEN had been seen as an indicator that the Liberal's were in trouble. Until that time, Sarnia was a stronghold that had, for years, withstood Tory onslaughts.
In the postmortems that followed, it was evident that the defeat of Mr. CULLEN and his cabinet colleagues could only mean one thing: As a referendum on Trudeau's leadership, Ontario had voted a resounding No.
Bud CULLEN was born in a northern Ontario village where he went to elementary school. He attended high school in Sudbury, Ontario, and went from there to the University of Toronto and to Osgoode Hall Law School.
As a young lawyer, he set up practice in Sarnia, Ontario, where he also developed an active interest in politics. It was also where he retreated after his 1979 electoral defeat. He went back to his law practice and waited and watched. It was, after all, however, a minority government that had replaced the Liberals and only time would tell how long it would survive.
While he waited, Mr. CULLEN did a most curious thing for someone in the public eye: He changed his name. Familiar to Canadians as Bud, he applied under the Change of Name Act to have his name officially switched from Jack Sydney George to Bud, a nickname his mother had given him when he was a young boy. The change, he said, came about because of his renewed role as a lawyer.
"While I was in politics I had no trouble using the name Bud but now that I am back practising law the name Bud could not legally be used," he said in October of 1979. "I cleared the name change with my mother first."
For all that, he was not to be Bud CULLEN the lawyer for long. The Progressive Conservative government of Joe CLARK was soon defeated in the Commons and a new general election was called. In February of 1980, Mr. Trudeau became Prime Minister with a parliamentary majority that included Mr. CULLEN. That, however, was as close as Mr. CULLEN would get to the inner circles of power. The man who had once served as parliamentary secretary to John TURNER when he was finance minister under Lester PEARSON, Mr. CULLEN was not invited back into cabinet.
At 52, he was one of three former Trudeau ministers (the others were Judd Buchanan and Bryce Mackasey) who came back from personal defeat to gain seats in the 1980 election, and he could not, at the time, restrain his feelings. His first reaction at not being reappointed, he said, was of "disappointment that I didn't make [Cabinet] myself. Having been there once it would have been nice to get back."
The 24-hour period before the swearing-in of the new Cabinet, he explained, had been a particularly tense period. It was a time during which each time the telephone rang he wondered if it was the Prime Minister calling about a Cabinet posting. What made it worse was that many Friends from Ottawa had telephoned his Sarnia home to inquire.
All the same, Mr. CULLEN appeared not to feel shortchanged and bitter. "When you play in politics, you play by the rules of the game," he said with characteristic philosophy. "Sometimes you get squeezed by geography, and sometimes it's personality. If you can't accept it, you don't last very long."
As it turned out, neither he nor Mr. Trudeau had much time left in politics. By August of 1983, the Ottawa rumour mills signalled Mr. Trudeau would quit by Christmas.
A Canadian Press survey had quoted six Liberal members of Parliament as saying Mr. Trudeau should step down while others were less declarative. Ever the loyalist, Mr. CULLEN criticized his fellow caucus members and accused his colleagues of having "flapping tongues... That's not the way Liberals conduct their business."
In the end, the rumours turned out to be fairly accurate. Two months after the predicted date, Mr. Trudeau announced he would step down. Mr. TURNER took over the leadership of the Liberal Party and suddenly the country was in the grips of a summer election campaign. As far as Mr. CULLEN was concerned, however, the campaign could go on without him. In June of 1984, he announced he would not seek re-election. Recently remarried, he chose instead to spend more time with his wife Nicole and their young son.
And that was not all. He confided that he had contemplated resigning the previous year but was reluctant at a time of low Liberal support. Once again, he had felt bound by loyalty. As a former Cabinet minister and chairman of the Commons justice committee he had remained seated on the Liberals' front bench. "I was called a front-bench backbencher," he once joked.
Then the polls began to show a resurgence in party support and he knew the time was right. A Gallup poll in May of 1984 pegged Liberal popularity at 46 per cent, six percentage points above the Tories. It was to be his exit cue.
To the last, he never divulged why he was dropped from cabinet but did admit the fall had hurt. All the same, he stayed loyal to Mr. Trudeau since the demotion. "I have never had a bad thought about him in 16 years," he said in 1984.
A month later, his fidelity paid off. In July of 1984, newly minted prime minister John TURNER announced he had been forced by constitutional circumstances to agree to appointments for 17 retiring Liberal members of Parliament. Among them was Bud CULLEN, who was made a judge of Federal Court of Canada, trial division, at a salary of $89,100 plus $2,000 allowance for robes and wigs, not including a generous House of Commons pension.
His appointment, and those of his colleagues, caused bitter complaints of patronage -- including a roasting by the Canadian Bar Association that said it was too open to political considerations and did not guarantee that the best people would be named to the bench.
For all that, Mr. CULLEN took happily to his new role and survived criticism. From time to time, he continued to make headlines, the last occasion, in late 2001, just weeks after the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. Although under pressure by lawyers from the Canadian Security and Intelligence Service, Mr. Justice CULLEN kept his head and denied the agency's attempts to detain an Egyptian immigrant it suspected was involved in terrorism. He criticized Canadian Security and Intelligence Service interrogation techniques and said they were more suited to a police shakedown of potential criminal informants than an agency trying to extract information in a sensitive cross-cultural situation.
Judge CULLEN left the bench soon after and retired to Ottawa.
Prime Minister Paul MARTIN yesterday issued a press release that was, perhaps, a last reward for loyal service. Mr. MARTIN, who is also leader of the Liberal Party, paid tribute to Mr. CULLEN and extended to his family "our deepest condolences on his passing and our profound appreciation for what he gave to his country."
Bud CULLEN was born Jack Sydney George CULLEN on April 20, 1927 in Creighton Mine, near Sudbury, Ontario He died in Ottawa on July 5, 2006. He was 78. Cause of death was not disclosed. He is survived by his wife Nicole and by six children, three of whom are from an earlier marriage to Marion Ann Hawley.
MERRITT, William Hamilton, 1862 -- Died This Day
Thursday, July 7, 2005, Page S9
Businessman, politician and visionary born on July 3, 1793, at Bedford, N.Y.
The son of Loyalist settlers who found refuge at what later became St. Catharines, Ontario, he operated a number of mills on his property and first conceived of building a canal that would service them. The idea was seized on by others with the result that it developed into a ship canal that linked Lake Ontario and Lake Erie, thus solving the obstacle caused to navigation by the Niagara Falls. In 1824, he formed the Welland Canal Co. and five years later it opened for business. In 1832, he became a member of the Legislative Assembly and was chief commissioner of public works from 1850 to 1851. He campaigned for the St. Lawrence River to be altered and turned into a canal and argued the case for more railways. He died in Cornwall, Ontario, while a passenger on board a ship.

Kay TREMBLAY, Thespian (1915-2005)
Actress who was the daughter of a clown, and herself went on stage as an adolescent, was best known as Aunt Eliza on the television series Road To Avonlea
By Catherine CULLEN, Special to the Globe and Mail, Monday, September 12, 2005, Page S11
Toronto -- Whether it was in front of soldiers in Europe during the Second World War, before lunchtime crowds in Montreal, on the stages of Stratford or before the film and television cameras that brought her to a mass audience in Canada, Kay TREMBLAY spent almost all 90 years of her life acting.
To most Canadians she became a familiar face as Great Aunt Eliza on the popular television series Road To Avonlea during the 1990s. Yet Kay TREMBLAY was immersed in performance almost from her birth in 1915 in Glasgow, Scotland. Her family toured Europe with her father, William McALLISTER, who performed before royalty as a tightrope walker and the principal clown in the famous Blackpool Circus. Kathleen McALLISTER, as she was named at birth, would take to the stage herself before she was even in her teens. She spent decade after decade acting and overcame staggering personal tragedy before she found the role on Road to Avonlea that would win her a Gemini award, and earn her the affection from fans that so many in the acting community had felt for her all along.
The role of Aunt Eliza was truly made for Ms. TREMBLAY, said Kevin SULLIVAN, executive producer of Road to Avonlea. "I had seen her work and I was always kind of fascinated by her because she's so ancient but she was really commanding." At the time, his team had wanted to add an older character to the show and built the character of Aunt Eliza specifically for her.
Ms. TREMBLAY adored the role, said Ron BARRY, her agent for nearly two decades. A true professional, having an amazing ability to connect with any character, Ms. TREMBLAY found something special in this particular part, he said.
"I guess the role was so near and dear to her heart because she could be a bit of a cantankerous soul too, and Aunt Eliza had so many layers and at the centre was a softy."
Soft enough that she would "melt" when a fan approached her, Mr. BARRY recalls, but strong enough to withstand filming in 35 degree heat in corset without a word of complaint, while the younger actors around her withered.
"She would always say to me, 'Darling, I'm just lucky to be working,'" he recalled.
Ms. TREMBLAY was so committed to the part that she even saved Aunt Eliza from a near-death experience of sorts. Near the end of the series' seven year run, the writers were looking for a way to create some exciting new story lines, said series producer Kevin SULLIVAN.
The idea that Aunt Eliza might be killed off was suggested, but ultimately passed over, he said. However, word somehow got back to Ms. TREMBLAY that her character was facing imminent death. She arrived in Mr. SULLIVAN's office one day and gave him one of the hardest pitches of his career in an effort to save her character, he recalled.
"I said, 'Don't worry Kay I'll put it aside.'"
"'But,' she said, 'I really like the idea of someone dying.'"
That conversation spawned the idea of bringing in a new character, the elderly cousin Winifred, who appears briefly in the series before dying. The plot line won Ms. TREMBLAY a Gemini award in 1997 for best supporting actress. The actress who played Winifred, Frances Bay, also won a Gemini for her part.
While the Gemini win and her role on Road to Avonlea represented a high point in Kay TREMBLAY's career, it came only after years of personal hardship. She lost three loved ones in a short span of time.
First, her sister Betty committed suicide some time after Kay moved to Montreal to be with her Canadian husband in 1954. Next, her husband Raoul took his life as well. Then, in 1970, the eldest of Ms. TREMBLAY's two sons, Anthony, drowned in a boating accident. She was devastated by the losses.
It was the focus she learned early on in life, thanks to growing up in a family of performers, that helped Ms. TREMBLAY to overcome the losses, said her son Michael TREMBLAY.
"I think she was about six when she asked, 'Daddy, how do you do it, getting up on the high wire?'"
"He said, 'I put one foot in front of the other, I look straight ahead and I don't look down.' I think that was the motto for her life. My brother died. She didn't look down. My father died. She didn't look down."
Her disposition was also shaped by the time she spent studying and performing with the George Balanchine Ballet, before the Second World War. She said it taught her the importance of discipline and to always be grateful to be working, recalled Mr. Barry.
After the Second World War broke out, Kay and her sister Betty formed a sister act and travelled around Europe entertaining troops. One night, Kay and Betty experienced some of the terror of war as their train arrived in the city of Coventry, England, said Frank Blanche, a friend of Ms. TREMBLAY's from her acting days in Montreal. Coventry was bombed that night. The sisters train stopped and everyone on board began to scream. "The bombs hit everything except the train and the all-clear went and they looked out the window and everything was flattened," Mr. Blanche said.
However, the war also brought some happiness into Kay TREMBLAY's life. One night, a mutual friend introduced her to a charming Canadian soldier by the name of Raoul TREMBLAY. In 1954, the pair married and moved to Montreal. They had two sons, Anthony and Michael. While in Montreal, Ms. TREMBLAY did everything from musicals and television to performing in front of lunchtime crowds at Montreal's Place Ville Marie.
It was while living in Montreal that she lost her sister, her husband and son. Although she eventually recovered sufficiently to return to her career, she still had another battle to win: alcoholism.
Eventually, she became involved in such successful shows as Night Heat, Street Legal and Wind at My Back and her career began to take off. She also appeared in dozens of movies over the course of her career, including the 1980 film Shadow Dancing, in which she appeared alongside Christopher Plummer.
"She got to play a variety of old ladies from the sweet grandmotherly type to the 'you better watch it, this is a gun-toting mama'," her agent, Mr. BARRY said.
Ms. TREMBLAY also enjoyed a successful stage career. Some of her greatest achievements on stage included performing at London's Grand Theatre under the direction of Robin Phillips in the 1983-84 season.
She played the role of an elderly courtesan in Timon of Athens and shared the stage with Shelia McCarthy. Beginning in 1989, she performed two seasons at Stratford.
Her energy and professionalism earned her admiration from colleagues in film, television, and on stage. Her talent and her strength made her truly one in a million, said Mr. BARRY. " You know how the Readers Digest used to have that segment, 'My most unforgettable character'? She would be my most unforgettable character."
Kay TREMBLAY was born in Glasgow, Scotland on January 12, 1915. She died on August 9, 2005 in Stratford, Ontario after suffering from Alzheimer's Disease. She was 90 years old. She is survived by her son, Michael.

Laszlo Karoly PETERFY, Engineer: (1933-2005)
Student who took up arms in the 1956 Hungarian uprising fled for Austria in a truck full of guns only to end up in a prison camp. He left for liberty in Canada
By Catherine CULLEN, Special to the Globe and Mail, Thursday, October 27, 2005, Page S7
Montreal -- Challenges were nothing new to Laszlo PETERFY. By the time the 23-year-old Hungarian arrived in Canada, he had already survived bombings, persecution, an uprising and imprisonment. Adjusting to life in a country that he could not have found on a map a few weeks earlier was a challenge, but nothing quite so dramatic as what he had endured to get to Canada in the first place.
It was 1956 and Hungarian discontent with the ruling Communist Party had finally boiled over. About 100,000 protestors took the streets of Budapest. The police opened fire and protest transformed into a revolution that would leave more than 30,000 people dead.
A student engineer at the University of Sopron, Mr. PETERFY and his Friends decided to flee to Austria -- but not without first putting up a fight. Trouble was, they had no idea what to do, he wrote in his unpublished memoirs. Soviet troops were advancing toward Sopron so the students decided to intercept them outside town. "In retrospect, we picked the worst possible place. As it happened, our armour-piercing cannon was disabled and the first Russian tank simply drove over it and crushed it. Nobody fired a single shot, and just as well, because we, armed with rifles only, would not have had a chance. We were disarmed and sent back to the city."
Not one to give up, Mr. PETERFY and his Friends commandeered a truck and some weapons. They meant to attack the Soviet troops one last time. As it turned out, the enemy never showed up and the students arrived at the border in a truck still loaded with hand grenades, rifles and ammunition. Not surprisingly, the Austrians were less than thrilled. Their armed arrival meant they were separated from other refugees and placed behind barbed wire in a camp that no one was permitted to leave.
Mr. PETERFY was released only after he and many of his Friends accepted an offer from Canada to continue their education in Toronto or Vancouver. At the time, he neither knew precisely where Canada was, nor did he speak any English.
"We arrived with nothing but the clothes on our back, but we carried our cultural background," he wrote. He and other Hungarian refugees settled into a house in Chorley Park, in Toronto's fashionable Rosedale district. They were given a crash course in English, but it was Canadian behaviour they found baffling. He was particularly perplexed by the classroom attitudes of students who would interrupt the professor and prop their feet up on chairs. It was unlike the discipline he had known at home. Eventually, he adjusted and, in time, he was able to visit Hungary nearly every year to see the family he left behind.
Born in 1933, as Adolf Hitler was rising to power in Germany, Laszlo Karoly PETERFY was the eldest of three children. At first, his childhood was peaceful and he dreamed of being an engineer. He was fascinated by his mechanical toys, like the plane that dropped bombs. By 1944, the war had become real and his hometown was bombed by the advancing Russians. Caught unaware, the family did not make it to the shelter behind the house. This was the first of many good strokes of luck in life for Laszlo, because the shelter was obliterated. The family fled to Germany for the remainder of the war and his father, an officer in the Hungarian army, which fought on the side of the Germans, was captured and made a prisoner of war in France.
After the war, the family returned to Sopron, only to find a Communist regime had taken over. The PETERFYs were declared "enemies of the working class" and Laszlo was denied a university education. Instead, he went out to work but never abandoned his dream. Two years later, he saw his opportunity. "A not-too-bright, but friendly manual labourer" had been made local Communist Party official and Mr. PETERFY casually mentioned to him that he wanted to attend university. Apparently unaware that it was his political duty to prevent an untrustworthy person from attending university, the official agreed to give him a letter of reference, but confessed he could not write very well. So Mr. PETERFY composed his own letter of recommendation and the official simply signed it.
It was to be many years before he graduated -- and not from the University of Sopron but from the University of Toronto. Mr. PETERFY first worked as a surveyor in remote corners of Canada and then in 1961 he met Ann KORONYA, another Hungarian refugee. He decided to settle down, took a job with the city of Toronto and married Ann.
His years in Canada unfolded happily, despite the hardship early in his life, said his daughter Kathy. "He was very philosophical about everything.... He never complained; he never looked back."
Laszlo Karoly PETERFY was born in Pusztaföldvár, Hungary, on July 26, 1933. He died of prostate cancer on August 28, 2005, in Toronto. He was 72. He is survived by his wife, Ann, sister Katalin and daughter Kathy.

Angus BAXTER, Genealogist: (1912-2005)
Former army colonel and failed novelist wrote six books that helped thousands of Canadians trace their family roots
By Catherine CULLEN, Special to the Globe and Mail, Thursday, November 24, 2005, Page S9
Families around the world can be grateful that Angus BAXTER failed in his dreams of becoming a novelist. If, as a young man, Mr. BAXTER had achieved the success he coveted in writing fiction, he might never have gone on to pen the six books that made up his In Search of Your Roots series, which helped people across the world reunite with lost relatives.
Mr. BAXTER's interest in genealogy was born out of loss early in his life. As a four-year-old in Bristol, England, young Angus lost his father, William, to heart failure. Having not really known his father, and growing up feeling largely estranged from his devoutly Christian mother, Mr. BAXTER turned to genealogy as a way of understanding his own past.
He was able to translate what he had learned into his first published book, In Search of Your Roots: A Guide for Canadians Seeking Their Ancestors. First published in Mr. BAXTER's adopted home of Canada in 1978, the book effectively communicated his own excitement in the quest to find one's family, said Douglas Gibson, Mr. BAXTER's original publisher at Macmillan of Canada and later at McClelland and Stewart.
Mr. BAXTER was one of the first authors to understand the attraction that genealogy held, said Mr. Gibson. "Searching for your ancestors is armchair travel, but it's travel through time as well. He recognized the excitement in that."
He decided to take that enthusiasm on the road to promote his book. He and his wife, Nan, travelled across Canada and eventually to many different parts of the world. Mr. BAXTER would give lectures on finding one's ancestors and Nan would sell books at the back of the room.
"It seemed like almost every weekend, they were off to this rotary club or that library," recalled Mr. Gibson. "He was sewing the seeds and people went away from that meeting saying, 'Oh, I just read the most amazing book and it's about how you find you roots and you must read it.' "
And people did read it. His books sold hundreds of thousands of copies in Canada and were picked up by Genealogical Publishing Company in the United States. He did hundreds of media interviews and even made an appearance on NBC's The Today Show. Many readers would write Mr. BAXTER, asking for help with their search for their ancestors.
One such reader, Caroline Whitehead, decided to write him after picking up a copy of Searching for your British and Irish Roots at her local library in British Columbia. In her letter, she told Mr. BAXTER about her life growing up in an orphanage in Kent, England, and her dreams of finding her parents.
He not only replied to her letter, he also set to work helping with her research, looking at records that Ms. Whitehead would never have been able to access herself, she said. He never charged her a cent for his time, she added. "He opened every door that was firmly closed to me in trying to find out where I was born, who my parents were -- who I was, really. He did that for me."
While he excelled as an author and genealogist, it wasn't always such an obvious path for Angus BAXTER. Rather, like the search to find one's roots, Mr. BAXTER's path to success as an author was long and full of unexpected turns.
As a young man, he studied history in university and dreamed of becoming a writer. Unable to achieve any great measure of success, he eventually turned to managing ice rinks. Hockey had not yet taken off in his home country of England, but teams would visit from North America and put on exhibition games. It was while working at a local arena that he met his future wife, Nan PEARSON. When the two were introduced he was told, "This is our Miss PEARSON. She'll take care of you."
Before any real romance bloomed between the two, the Second World War broke out. Mr. BAXTER enlisted on the first day of the war. He served in France, Belgium, Holland and Germany, eventually rising to the rank of lieutenant colonel.
Always the raconteur, he loved to tell stories about the more amusing moments of his time in the war, recalled his only daughter, Susan BAXTER. In one instance, he was running out the door, late to meet with Friends, when the phone rang. It was his commanding officer. The officer went on and on and Mr. BAXTER agonized over not being able to get off the phone. Finally, he bolted from the house and arrived at his destination, only to find it had been bombed. "For the rest of his life, he always stopped to answer the phone on the way out the door."
During the war, Angus and Nan began to correspond. Eventually, the two were married in 1943. When the war ended, the couple, like many in Britain, had expected to find that the class system in their country would diminish. Realizing the war had not brought the social changes they expected, husband and wife joined the Conservative Party of Britain. Mr. BAXTER enjoyed backroom politics and worked as a political strategist. Ms. BAXTER ran unsuccessfully for a local seat.
In 1949, Susan was born. In 1951, another baby died shortly after birth. With their political battle proving to be a struggle, and the loss hanging over them, the BAXTERs decided on a change. They wanted to move within the British Empire, and since Australia seemed too far and South Africa too dangerous, they decided on Canada.
Mr. BAXTER worked at a few odds jobs to support his family here, eventually settling into a position managing the National Gift Show in Toronto. It was only once he retired from that job in 1970 that he began working on the series of books that would make his reputation.
One of the things he loved most about his career as an author was the opportunity it gave him to help others, said his daughter.
"He answered every single letter people wrote, and continued to do that until about three years ago [when his eyesight began to fail]. If he liked the sound of somebody, he would absolutely go out of his way to help them."
Angus BAXTER was born in Bristol, England on June 8, 1912. He died in Toronto on September 26, 2005. He leaves his wife, Nan, his daughter, Susan, and granddaughter, Katherine BARCSAY.

Bud CULLEN, 78: Former federal cabinet minister
Canadian Press
Sarnia, Ontario -- Bud CULLEN, a cabinet minister in Pierre Trudeau's Liberal government, has died. He was 78.
"It is with sadness that I learned of the passing of the Honourable Bud CULLEN," Prime Minister Paul MARTIN said in a statement yesterday. "CULLEN played an important role in defining the Canada of today."
Sarnia Mayor Mike BRADLEY issued a statement Tuesday night saying CULLEN had died that afternoon in Ottawa.
BRADLEY was campaign manager and executive assistant to CULLEN, who represented the Sarnia-Lambton riding from 1968 to 1979 and again from 1980 to 1984. He described his friend as a decent man who always fought the good fight with civility.
"I never once saw him angry or mad," he said yesterday. "He felt politics was a public service, and he often said to me if he hadn't entered politics he would have been a United Church minister."
Jack Sydney George (Bud) CULLEN was born in April, 1927, in Creighton Mine, Ontario, near Sudbury.
First elected to Parliament in 1968 and appointed to the Trudeau cabinet in 1974 as minister of national revenue, he was minister of employment and immigration from 1975 to 1979.
"He helped to usher in the Immigration Act of 1976, which for the first time included a provision for private sponsorship of refugees," MARTIN noted.
CULLEN also sponsored rules to protect Canadian publications threatened by U.S. competition and introduced the Unemployment Insurance Act.
In 1984, CULLEN was named a judge of the trial division of the Federal Court of Canada. He retired in September, 2000.
A cause of death was not given.

Boy's home drew noise complaints
East-end home where body was found drew noise complaints
By Debra BLACK, Staff Reporter With files from Dale Anne FREED
Neighbours of 12-year-old Jamie CHAVEZ, whose body was discovered in the basement by his brother, had lodged a number of complaints with the city's housing agency about noise, rowdiness and lack of adult supervision at his east-end home.
Complaints had been made to Cityhome, Toronto's non-profit housing agency, in May and June, said a complainant who asked not to be identified.
"I called many times," he said, adding three households complained.
They were told nothing could be done. "We were concerned about the noise, the carrying on, kids not going to school, the lack of respect for the standards of the neighbourhood, those standards simply being quiet.
"Nobody gets upset with kids playing, but basketball in the street at midnight is ridiculous. And a gang of 10 kids on the porch being loud. If my door is shut and my television is on and I can still hear them across the street, it's too loud."
And now, he said with a quaver in his voice, one of the street's children is dead. It's too awful to contemplate, he said. "It's one of our kids. One of our children on our street. Dead."
Jamie CHAVEZ was found dead early Friday morning in a bin or barrel in the basement of his family's Coady Ave. home. Cause of death has not yet been determined. An autopsy was inconclusive.
"We're still in the process of pursuing further testing," said coroner Dr. Trevor GILLMORE.
Neighbour Louise COLE said Jamie had been reported missing to police at about 1: 30 a.m. by his mother Karen CHAVEZ after she found him missing when she got home from work. CHAVEZ had first called COLE and asked if Jamie was there. COLE said he wasn't.
When police arrived the first time they searched the house and found no sign of the boy.
After they left, COLE told Jamie's brother, Abel, 18, to check the shed in the backyard. He went to the basement for a screwdriver to break the lock on the shed and found his brother's body, COLE said.
CHAVEZ then called the police again, she said.
Yesterday, the family home appeared virtually abandoned except for a couple of bicycles locked to the porch railing and a pumpkin propped on a white plastic chair.
Neighbours say CHAVEZ lived there with her eldest son Abel, Jamie, two sisters -- Vanessa, 16, and Veronica, 14 -- and two teenage cousins. An 18-year-old friend of Abel's had also been living there for six months. CHAVEZ had recently separated from her husband, Alex, and was working nights at a packaging and labelling factory, said COLE's husband, Ronald.
But not everyone on the street had complaints about the family or noise. Other neighbours described the family as "nice" and weren't concerned about the loud music or late-night gatherings on the front porch.
"The kids were not bad," said Helen CULLEN, a pensioner who lives down the street. Often she would see the children playing road hockey, she said.
"They're just like other kids... they were a bunch of teenagers. What do you expect? (Jamie) was polite. He was not a bad kid. He never sassed you or anything. The mother did a good job with them."
Elise PARENT, who also lives nearby, didn't know the family well, but said she wasn't bothered by the teens hanging out.
"You could see a family, a single mother and a lot of kids, not flowing in money," said PARENT. "It was a hangout for kids in the neighbourhood. They would hang out until 1 in the morning. They were good people. They never made any trouble."
Throughout the day, police officers came and went from the house, continuing their probe.
Flowers and cards of condolences were placed lovingly behind the police tape at the foot of the lawn.
One card read: "Sorry for your loss. But he will still live on in our hearts. From Matthew, Daniel and Sarah."
A mother and son brought red roses and a cross with the Lord's Prayer written on it.
They placed it on the lawn and then stopped to look at the other bouquets, cards and candles. The boy had attended school with Jamie -- they were in some classes together, his mother said.
Later, a former employer of Jamie's father, Alex, came by to pay his respects.
He placed a bouquet of flowers on the lawn and shook his head in dismay.
"I didn't know the kids or the family," said Cam YOUNG, adding Alex worked for him as a mechanic for a number of years. They haven't been in touch recently, but he felt moved to do something.
"Alex is a nice, nice man. Very soft-spoken.... I just read about it in the paper. It's a tragedy."
