GAIN, Donald Nelson (Journalist /Traveler)
Don passed peacefully in his 92nd year in Victoria, British Columbia where he had lived for more than 40 years. Born September 17, 1913 in St. Catharines, Ontario to Daisy (DEAN) and Charles Nelson GAIN, Don was the second of 4 brothers. Don began his journalism career at age 18 as a high school sports reporter for the St. Catharines Standard and here his skill as a wordsmith was developed as he made a list of all the synonyms for a football on a sheet of paper and ticked them off as he used them. Don attended the University of Toronto and worked variously in Toronto, Timmins and Kirkland Lake before joining two of his brothers in the Royal Canadian Air Force. Here his love of travelling was nurtured during his training at Chatham, New Brunswick, Summerside, Prince Edward Island and Patricia Bay, British Columbia before being stationed as a navigator on Canso submarine patrol aircraft out of Alliford Bay, Queen Charlotte Islands. At Alliford Bay, he continued his interest in newspapers by becoming editor of a daily, mimeographed news sheet handed out to service personnel in the dining hall and publishing a monthly magazine (The Victory) at the station. Don was now hooked on the West Coast and after the war, lived and worked in Oregon and California, writing for a string of labour newspapers owned by a Canadian. But ever eager to travel, he signed on to Norwegian cargo vessels as a steward and travelled to Japan, West Indies, South America, and the U.S. east coast. On those trips, he disciplined himself to write as much as 3000 words a day, selling what articles he could and dreamed of becoming a foreign correspondent. The last thing he did before departing on a ship, was to return his library books. Now in his late 30's, Don wrote from Trinidad to a friend that 'If I live long enough, maybe I will be successful.' After ship-board travel became tiresome, Don continued to work in California, where, among other things, he was a radio drama producer. Finally, Don returned to Canada where he worked for Canada Dry as sales manager in Victoria and here he realized his dream. In 1962, he joined the staff of the Victoria Colonist where he covered all the beats - politics, religion, marine events, armed forces, police and realized another dream by travelling with Canadian Peace Keepers to Cyprus, Norway, Germany, France, and the Arctic. Highlights of those trips included interviewing Archbishop Mikarios and transferring, ship-to-ship on a bosun's chair, with the Navy. After 13 years, Don retired from the paper with cudos from the Saanich District council as 'a fair and honest reporter.' He used to say he had Friends in 'high' places as he wrote both the military news and the church page. He then attended the University of Victoria to learn French and continued travelling by, among other things, immersing himself in the French culture by spending 6 month stints at the university at Aix-en Provence. He continued to freelance and never lost his inquisitiveness, sometimes 'interviewing' you until you had to cry 'Uncle!'. Don never married nor had a family of his own, but he was a true patriarch, always keeping in touch and visiting family in eastern Canada and U.S., usually as stop-overs to overseas. He knew all the family connections and sometimes as a young man, my eyes would glaze over as he once again recited the family tree. But his enthusiasm was infectious and I'm now destined to carry that torch. Don did not belong to service clubs but, non-the-less, served the community through a deep sense of social involvement. In retirement, he tirelessly visited elderly Friends and acquaintances and drove them anywhere necessary to attend their needs until he voluntarily gave up his own license. His list of annual charitable donations was long. Don never made the Fortune 500 list and had by-lines instead of headlines, but by any other measure, he was a success. He survived all 3 of his brothers and is now survived by nephews: Nelson GAIN (Marg), Meaford, Ont,;; Cameron GAIN (Pauline), Welland, Ontario; Scott GAIN, Nelson, British Columbia (Glenda, Victoria, British Columbia); Donald GAIN (Mickey), Aurora, Ont,;; Dean GAIN, California; Diane GOLDWATER, Arizona. Grand nieces/nephews: Kitty ARMSTRONG, Dana GAIN, Jason GAIN, Christy GAIN, Allison GAIN, Donald GAIN, Geordie SEED, Corrie SEED and numerous great-grand nieces/nephews. Don was a long time member of the First Unitarian Church of Victoria (5575 West Saanich Road) where he will be remembered and celebrated by Friends and family on February 5, 2005 at 2pm. Don's ashes will be scattered in the Memorial Garden and a plaque placed in the Memorial Wall. If so inclined, please bring remembrances both written and verbal to share and make donations, in his name, to your favourite charity in lieu of flowers.

MAXWELL, Liz
It is with great sadness that the family of Liz MAXWELL announces her sudden and unexpected death in the early morning hours of July 30th, 2005. Liz was the loving wife of Mike TRUSZ and the mother of Graham, Jamie and Cameron WEBSTER. She was also a long-time teacher at both I.E. Weldon and Fenelon Falls Secondary Schools. Liz's sense of family, humour and zest for life will be missed by all who knew her. Liz was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia on September 29th, 1948. The daughter of Bill MAXWELL, a naval commander in the Canadian Armed Forces and Margaret MAXWELL, a teacher, she spent the first years of her life moving between Ottawa and Halifax. She was an adventuresome, outgoing and athletic child, which led her to Queen's University where she studied Phys. Ed, eventually earning a Master in Education from the University of Toronto. She moved to Fenelon Falls with her first husband Jim WEBSTER and kept busy with local politics and coaching high school sports teams, taking a particular interest in basketball, volleyball and track and field. Despite being very active and health conscious, jogging every day long before it became fashionable, Liz suffered from some serious health afflictions in her middle years. In 1992 she gratefully received a liver transplant, which allowed her an additional thirteen years to nurture her family and marry her husband Mike. Together, with their family, they embarked on a wide range of adventures including participating in the transplant games in Australia where Liz earned a Silver medal. She also sailed the Greek Islands, toured France and Portugal and travelled throughout North America visiting Friends and family from the Yukon to Newfoundland. When she wasn't travelling she was often found on the tennis court or expanding her fledgling writing career. Her love, energy and spirit will be missed by all. Along with her husband and sons, Liz is survived by her stepchildren Dave, Melanie and Josh TRUSZ, her Aunt Flora TABOR, her sister Barb DEAN and her brother Bob MAXWELL, her eight nieces and nephews and one great-niece. Friends and family will be received at the Jardine Funeral Home 'Illman-Platten Chapel', 8 Princes' Street West, Fenelon Falls, on Tuesday August 2nd from 2: 00 until 4: 00 p.m. and 7:00 until 9:00 p.m. A service celebrating her wonderful life will be held the following day, Wednesday August 3rd at 2: 00 p.m. at the Fenelon Falls United Church. As a remembrance, please consider a donation to the University Health Network liver transplant program. On-line condolences and donations can be made at www.jardinefuneralhomes.com.

Unus Mohamed OMARALI
By Darryl DEAN, Wednesday, December 14, 2005, Page A24
Physician, devout Muslim, community leader. Born November 21, 1927, in Charlieville, Trinidad. Died April 6 in Toronto of a heart attack, aged 77.
Dr. OMARALI, the "World's Greatest Marriage Officer," according to a plaque that he kept on his desk, knew the value of laughter, and his jovial disposition seemed to have had a therapeutic effect on many who met him.
But behind his laughter was a serious commitment to his profession and community.
He had been a physician for half a century and the news of his passing evoked fond memories of a man simply called "Doc" by many of his patients, who came from diverse communities in multicultural Toronto. He had taken a special interest in new Canadians and empathized with the plight of refugees.
And for thousands who fled from Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana and other Commonwealth Caribbean countries claiming refugee status in Canada, he became an advocate.
Not only did he speak out on behalf of these new arrivals but he provided free medical services to many of those in need.
Dr. OMARALI had set his sights on a career as a doctor at an early age.
In 1948, after teaching at Naparima College, the local high school from which he graduated, he left Trinidad for Canada to enter the University of Saskatchewan. He later moved to Ireland to attend medical school.
He qualified in medicine in 1955 and, after completing his internship at Beth-El Hospital in New York, he returned to Trinidad, where he worked in the ear, nose and throat clinic at the San Fernando General Hospital.
In 1957, he went to England to further his studies in laryngology and otology and, on his return to Trinidad, went into private practice.
I got to know "Doc" in the late 1960s after he had relocated to Canada and established a family practice in Toronto. I went to see him on the recommendation of a friend who told me that he was the kind of doctor with whom I would be comfortable: "caring and willing to listen."
I remember my first visit to Dr. OMARALI's office. There were few empty chairs in the waiting room and I spent a lot of time leafing through magazines before my name was called.
After my checkup, Dr. OMARALI listened to my stories and even laughed at my jokes.
Over the years we chatted about a wide range of subjects: from personal medical matters to controversial topics such as politics and religion. He was a devout Muslim who was able to maintain friendly dialogue with non-Muslims.
Although he spent long hours at his office, he found time for community service and religious activities. He received several awards for community work with various organizations, including a leadership role with the Lions Club.
Dr. OMARALI was one of the elders in the Muslim community responsible for the purchase of a church in Toronto's west end, which was transformed into a mosque -- the Jami Masjid.
"Doc" officiated at hundreds of weddings in Ontario. His widow, Phirosa, recalled that he found great joy in marrying people.
The self-styled "World's Greatest Marriage Officer" was the father of three: two sons, Haidar and Iqbal, and a daughter, Zenobia, and grandfather to five.
When he retired in the 1979, I missed his laughter and the lively chats we used to have. By then his health was failing and he had to undergo heart surgery and a tracheotomy affected his speech.
Patients will remember "Doc" as a man who took time to listen but was not afraid to speak out for causes.
Darryl was a patient of Dr. OMARALI.
