SMITH, Donald Arthur (1931-2005)
Born in Kitchener on February 27, 1931, Don was a determined and highly motivated individual. First a young Sea Cadet, then following High School at K.C.I. a construction working teenager trying to help ends meet at home. He married Irene VOITEL in 1950, and later landed a job with the H. Boehmer Co. where over a period of 20 years he worked his way from Labourer to President. A true businessman he was instrumental in charting the company successfully through the 1960's. Several years later he accepted a position with his affiliate, Dufferin Concrete in Toronto. Life was not without its challenges for Don and one of them was in 1984 when he lost his first wife Irene at a young age, to cancer. But he pressed on, and made the decision to move to Toronto where he was working. Three years later he met and married his second wife Silvia TRUILLIO. He retired from Dufferin Concrete in 1997, but he did not retire from life. He then purchased a Flower and Gift Shop in Mississauga with his wife, which was his joy and is a thriving business today. Don was a faithful and enthusiastic member of the New Apostolic Church for over half a century, being sealed with his parents in 1946. As a young man he happily served as District Youth Leader and District Choir Leader for many, many years, of which he had the fondest memories. Later in life when asked to help with the overseas missionary work in Sri Lanka and Kenya he jumped at the opportunity, stating it was the most exciting adventure he ever had. Throughout his 74 years Don not only had the joy of being a friend, but also of having true and caring Friends for which he was very thankful. He was a soul with a strong, enduring, unshakable faith, and a man of character, determination, charisma and an endearing sense of humour. Husband, father, grandfather, teacher, friend, missionary and businessman. Lots of big empty spaces he has left behind. We are thankful for the blessing he was for us. Beloved husband of Silvia TRUILLIO for 18 years, and Irene VOITEL for 34 years. Loving father to Janice and her husband Ron, Jennifer and her husband Richard, Maureen and her husband Misak, Anna and her husband Ray. Caring 'Papa' to Heidi, Joanna and her husband Ryan, Colin, Andrea, Julia, Christie, Nicholas, Natalie, Deomie and Nadia and one great-grand_son Jeramy. Also lovingly remembered by Graciella BAEZ. He is predeceased by his parents Lily Ann DOBBIE (1972) and Arthur SMITH (1974,) his sister Delores McCLEMENTS (1974) and his wife Irene. Friends are invited to share their memories of Don and his family at the Ratz-Bechtel Funeral Home, 621 King St. W., Kitchener on Thursday 2-4 and 6-9 p.m. A service to celebrate his life and faith will be held at the New Apostolic Church, 160 Margaret Ave., Kitchener on Friday 7: 00 p.m. officiated by Apostle Ken KREUTNER. Donations may be made to the New Apostolic Foreign Extension Fund. In a note he left to his family he stated it's not the years in your life, but the life in your years. Mine has been tremendous! Special thanks to the Health Care Professionals at Trillium Health Centre, Mississauga and to Peel Hospice. On eagles wings soars high his soul, His faith now sight, he's reached the goal.

John MUGGERIDGE, Teacher And Writer: (1933-2005)
son of the famous British journalist and author carved out a life in Canada as a writer, educator and anti-abortion zealot who, in his way, introduced his father to Catholicism, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Thursday, December 1, 2005, Page S9
Teacher and writer John MUGGERIDGE was brought up "a mild boarding-school Anglican," according to his friend, the journalist David WARREN, but became an orthodox Catholic and fervent anti-abortionist under the influence of his wife, the Catholic writer and polemicist Anne ROCHE.
However public and political his stance as a "pro-life" campaigner, Mr. MUGGERIDGE never condoned or supported the homicidal activities of some anti-abortion campaigners, according to Mr. WARREN, himself a convert to Catholicism. "The whole point is that he was defending life, not psychopaths. He would be much more likely to shelter the woman who has had an abortion and realizes that she has done a terrible, terrible thing."
A gentle, self-effacing man with a wry wit, he never acknowledged how many people were touched by his faith in their essential goodness. Mr. MUGGERIDGE subsumed his own ambitions to his role as father and provider to a large family of four sons and a daughter. "He parked his academic career for his family," said his eldest son John Malcolm MUGGERIDGE. "He sacrificed his studies because he needed an income."
His nascent literary skills were called upon when George Orwell asked him to read the manuscript of Animal Farm before it was published in 1945. "Orwell and his father were worrying that the manuscript might suffer the same fate as Gulliver's Travels that is, become a children's book," said the writer Kildare DOBBS, who is related to the MUGGERIDGEs through his mother. John, at the age of 12, read Orwell's masterpiece and proclaimed it an adult book.
John MUGGERIDGE was born on the outskirts of London, England, the second of four children of journalist, writer and pundit Thomas Malcolm MUGGERIDGE and his wife Katherine " Kitty" DOBBS, a niece of Fabian socialist Beatrice WEBB. His older brother Leonard said he really didn't know John MUGGERIDGE as a child because they were "shipped off to boarding schools early on" because their famous father was "here, there and everywhere." The two brothers only became close in the past two decades.
Mr. MUGGERIDGE went to Cranbrook College and then did his then-obligatory two years of military service in Kenya. On his return to England, he studied history at Jesus College, Cambridge. After graduation, he immigrated to Canada in the mid-1950s "out of boredom," as he told one of his grandchildren who was writing a school essay on immigration.
"I think he wanted a change, said his son John Malcolm MUGGERIDGE. "His father was well known and he wanted to carve his own way and he wanted to teach." He looked in The Times of London and found two jobs advertised: one in Hong Kong and one in Corner Brook, Newfoundland.
That's how he met his future wife Anne-Marie ROCHE. She had entered the Sisters of Presentation as a novitiate, but had left the order before taking her vows. The sisters had found her a teaching job at the local Catholic school in Corner Brook. Mr. MUGGERIDGE, who was teaching at the public school, met her at a teacher's union meeting.
A couple of years later, Mr. MUGGERIDGE left Corner Brook to study for a master's degree in Canadian history at the University of Toronto. "He and my mom courted by letter," said his son. They married in 1960 and his father converted to Catholicism about a year later. "Mom was the driving force there. She was very, very devout and she had a strong influence on people. She was the main reason for Dad's conversion and for granddad's [in 1982], although he was also influenced by Mother Teresa and the pope."
"My theory is that John came to Canada to get away from his father's notoriety and also perhaps to get away from opinionated people, but then he married an even more opinionated person," said Mr. DOBBS.
A traditional Catholic who disagreed vehemently with Vatican II and its attempts to modernize the Church, Ms. ROCHE is the author of The Gates of Hell: The Struggle for the Catholic Church (1975) and The Desolate City: Revolution in the Catholic Church (1986). "I didn't marry a Catholic, I married Catholicism," Mr. MUGGERIDGE used to say about his increasingly orthodox religious views and his strong anti-abortion stance.
"In Catholic teaching there can not be anything right about abortion," said Mr. WARREN, himself a Catholic convert. "The moral positions may be difficult to uphold in people's personal lives, but they are not difficult to understand."
Mr. MUGGERIDGE taught history and French at Ridley College in the early 1960s and then taught at Earl Haig High School in Toronto before moving with his growing family to Hamilton to pursue a doctorate at McMaster University.
For a time, the MUGGERIDGEs were involved in a conservative discussion group critical of the provisions of Vatican II. Called the St. Athanasius Society, it was led by Jim DALY, a McMaster professor, and by Sister Mary Alexander, a teacher. The group fell apart after Prof. DALY's early death from cancer.
Mr. MUGGERIDGE didn't finish his doctorate. He moved his family, which by then numbered three children, to Niagara College in Welland, Ontario, in 1969, where he taught English literature and composition and Canadian Studies. He retired in the early 1990s. A voracious reader, he read his wife to sleep every night with a selection from Shakespeare, Dickens, Jane Austen, P.G. Wodehouse or John Donne and the Metaphysical poets.
As a writer, Mr. MUGGERIDGE frequently contributed book reviews to The Globe and Mail, wrote regularly for the now-defunct The Idler magazine and served as a contributing editor to the orthodox monthly magazine, Catholic Insight. "He was a Christian gentleman, very kindly disposed," said associate editor David DOOLEY, a retired English professor from St. Michael's College at the U of T.
Mr. MUGGERIDGE was not a quick writer, according to Mr. DOOLEY. "Give him a book review and the result would be slow in coming and very well thought out with a good sense of style."
Both he and his wife wrote regularly for The Idler in the 1980s and became close Friends with founding editor David WARREN. "He never really thought of himself as a writer," said Mr. WARREN, explaining that Mr. MUGGERIDGE mainly displayed his literary skills through old-fashioned letter writing. He could focus a cold, clear eye on his subject, however.
In "The Last Days of St. Muggs," an article he wrote in the January/February 1991 issue of The Idler, Mr. MUGGERIDGE wrote frankly about his father's youthful days as "an unfaithful, hard-drinking near-playboy," the progressive senility of his last months and summed him up as "a magnificent battle-axe of a Catholic controversialist with yet a wistful and forgiving, kindly heart."
Mr. MUGGERIDGE also contributed regularly to Human Life Review, a sectarian quarterly that William F. Buckley once praised as "the focus of civilized discussion of the abortion issue." He came to the journal through his father, who was good Friends with the founding editor, J.P. McFadden. "He brought clarity, humour, optimism, wisdom, patience and perseverance," to the publication, said senior editor Faith Abbott, the founder's widow.
Mr. MUGGERIDGE's wife Anne began evincing signs of dementia in the early 1990s, and was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and institutionalized in Toronto about five years ago. Mr. MUGGERIDGE moved to Toronto to be near his wife and went every day to feed her lunch. His own health began to fail about 2000. He suffered from multiple myeloma and underwent a strenuous bone-marrow transplant about three years ago. He survived the drastic treatment, but fell ill this autumn with a previously undiagnosed bowel cancer that had metastasized to his liver. His life was celebrated at a Latin mass at St. Vincent de Paul Church in Toronto on Tuesday.
John MUGGERIDGE was born in Croydon, near London, England, on February 28, 1933. He died in Toronto on Friday, November 25, of bowel cancer. He was 72. He is survived by his wife Anne, his sons John, Charles, Peter and Matthew, his daughter Rosalind, and his older brother Leonard.
