Ted LARSON
By Anna LARSON, Wednesday, June 1, 2005, Page A20
Soldier, family man, card player. Born June 3, 1921, in Druskieniki, Poland (now Lithuania). Died May 10 in Scarborough, Ontario, of cancer, aged 83.
Education was important to my Dad. Born Tadeusz Zagazdzon, he left the family home at 12, moving to a larger town to attend school where he supported himself by tutoring younger students.
After Poland was invaded in 1939, Dad's studies were cut short. He and two long-time school Friends, Mirek and Jan, journeyed south, hoping to cross the border and eventually make their way to France to join the Polish army. They parted ways at the border, but were reunited after the war.
Shortly after the Normandy invasion, Dad requested and received a transfer to the 1st Polish Armoured Division, which operated as a part of the 1st Canadian Army. When the war ended, unable to return to a Poland ruled by the Soviet-imposed government, Dad remained in Britain, where, as an officer, he was eligible for free education. Stung when the Allies abandoned Poland to the U.S.S.R., he turned down the offer and moved to Sweden. There he combined work with further study in Stockholm. Dad graduated in applied chemistry and, in 1951, with his Swedish wife Elsie and daughter, Christina, emigrated from to Canada.
When the job promised him failed to materialize, Dad work at a number of plants in Southern Ontario, all the while striving to become a successful Canadian. He changed his name and after several years found a position as chemist with what would end up as his lifetime employer, Borden Chemical Canada. A private man, when offered a promotion in the Philippines, he turned it down without giving a reason. The reason was that my mother was dying of cancer.
After her death, while raising his two daughters, Dad rose steadily at work, eventually becoming president and Chief Executive Officer of Borden Canada. Along the way, he met his future soul mate, Mary DEMPSTER and her son John. They married in 1964 and together had a second son, Ted Junior.
In 1966, my parents purchased land on Lake Kashwakamak (as did Mirek) and began to build what would become a defining and unifying element of the blended LARSON family: the family cottage. Dad was a cerebral guy and an old-school father. We didn't see much of him during the week, but we did spend weekends together at the cottage where he shared his beliefs, loves, values and his many books, with family and Friends.
We'll never know mushrooms or bridge like he did, but we did learn how to fish, work hard, play hard (and, let's be honest, drink hard). After a day clearing and building retaining walls, we'd gather around a fire. He couldn't carry a tune, but my Dad loved music (fortunately Mary is an excellent singer). Repertoire was eclectic: from Vera Lynn, Polish and Russian Army songs, to tangos and Land of the Silver Birch.
After his retirement in 1988, my parents travelled extensively and entertained, with style and imagination, a wide circle of Friends.
On April 17, Dad collected a last batch of sap from maple trees at the cottage and returned to Toronto feeling short of breath and with little appetite. Despite this, with Mary he continued to plan their annual Kentucky Derby party and he was anxious to return to the lake to plant his vegetable garden. A week later, he lay in hospital, unable to speak, with one desire only, to go home. Sadly, first diagnosed with pneumonia, then septic shock, stroke, and cancer, he was not able to. On May 10, with his family at his side, he died. We all miss him very much and have planted his garden.
Anna LARSON is Ted's daughter.
