MAHER, Edward Gerard " Gerry"
Retired Reinsurance Executive. Devoted husband, loving father and grandfather, beloved brother, uncle and friend, passed away suddenly November 26, 2005 at Lee Memorial Hospital, Fort Myers, Florida as a result of injuries sustained from a fall. Gerry was a model of faith, fortitude and love of family. He was a respected business executive, having graduated from Fordham in 1958, and worked for Guy Carpenter Reinsurance for over 35 years. In his later years, he was responsible for opening branches in many countries all over the world. Eighteen of his years with Guy Carpenter were spent in Toronto, Canada, where he raised his children. He forged many Friendships among his colleagues, here at home and internationally. Gerry was known to be a model of good stewardship in all aspects of his professional endeavours. When he retired, he offered his knowledge through volunteer efforts with Service Corps of Retired Executives, and parish finance administration for the parishes he attended. Gerry was a wondeful family man. He was born to John and Anne (DURCAN) MAHER, October 16, 1927, in the shadows of Mt. Nephin in Co. Mayo, Ireland. In his youth he participated in many athletic and scholastic adventures including boxing and drama. Gerry came to America in 1947, and worked for his Uncle Jack DURCAN while putting himself through college. He stayed very close to his 14 siblings in Ireland, England and New York. In 1952 he met the love of his life, Eileen STEEL, who survives him. They were married June 2, 1956. Together they raised seven children. Through perseverance and sacrifice, Gerry assured that each of his children could go to college. He often reminded his children of the value and importance of a liberal arts education. Gerry's greatest delight came from watching his grown children start their own families; he was very proud of his 19 grandchildren. He hoped to positively impact the next generation through family gatherings where many humorous stories were shared along with an appreciation of the family history and heritage. He was, above all else, a man of faith, devoted to daily reception of the Eucharist and recitation of the rosary. He was a member of St. Andrew Catholic Church in Cape Coral, Corpus Christi Catholic Church in Chatham, New Jersey, and St. Andrew's Catholic Church in Oakville, Ontario. He actively offered his time, talent and treasure to the church, especially through his volunteer work with the Corpus Christi Parish; as the mediator of the parish pastoral council at St. Andrew in Cape Coral; the St. Vincent de Paul Society, A.F.C.A.A.M. (African Caribbean American Ministry) and as a lector and Eucharistic Minister. He was a 4th Degree member of the Knights of Columbus. The best lessons of faith were taught by his lived example. In 2002, his son Brian died tragically, and this left a hole in Gerry's heart that never mended. We are comforted to know that father and son are now united in the presence of Christ, and that Gerry's heart no longer aches. We have lost our husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. Our consolation is our faith in the day we will see him again, in his eternal happiness. In his 78 years Gerry touched the minds, hearts and souls of many. He was preceded in death by his parents, his brother Seamus MAHER of Manchester, England, and his son Brian MAHER of Charlotte, North Carolina. He is survived by his wife of 49 years, Eileen; children Kevin (Lucy) MAHER of Chatham, New Jersey Phyllis (David J.) FLORIAN of Kalamazoo, Michigan; Diane (Philip) SARIKAS of Beaverton, Oregon; Clare (David) EMERY of Calgary, Canada; Carol (William) MURRAY of Chatham, New Jersey; Patrick (Kim) MAHER of Beaverton, Oregon; his daughter-in-law Barbara (Davren) MAHER; nineteen grandchildren; and thirteen of his siblings, Noreen GAVIN, Anthony MAHER, Kathleen MAHER, Muiradack MAHER, all of Ireland; Grace COCK, Julia GORZKIEWICZ of England; Anne DINNEGAN of Cape Coral; Patrick MAHER, John MAHER, Frank MAHER, Theresa COY

Bruce MacMILLAN
By Andy LIPCHAK, Thursday, January 6, 2005 - Page A20
Educator, founder of Canada FIRST. Born November 6, 1945, in Toronto. Died September 8, 2004, in an accident, near Oshawa, aged 58.
I met Bruce MacMILLAN in 1972 when I first applied for a job in the Ontario government. Bruce was the personnel officer for the competition. He phoned me after the interview to tell me that, although I didn't get the job, he wanted to help me find another position. I was stunned by this interest and support from someone I had barely met. Bruce was true to his word, and so began my own career and my 32-year Friendship with an extraordinary person.
Bruce left the government soon after I entered. He was restless and wanted to do something more entrepreneurial. This urge, no doubt, came from his father who founded what was probably Toronto's first health food store in 1939. Bruce demonstrated an enterprising spirit at an early age. As a small boy, he started his own lending library, issuing cards to neighbourhood children and keeping a record of borrowed books in a recipe box. The cards were free and there was no overdue charge.
Later in life, Bruce roped me and many other Friends into other good causes. One of these was Canada FIRST, which he founded in 1993. Canada FIRST encouraged Canadian youth to explore careers in math, science and technology by staging an annual national robotics competition for high-school teams. The students designed and built the robots that each year had to play a different sport such as hockey, curling and basketball.
Over its 10 years, more than 11,000 students, teachers, engineering mentors and volunteers participated. Many students have gone onto careers in high-tech companies because of the excitement and inspiration of Canada FIRST. Bruce was particularly proud that a growing number of them were young women. He and his wife, Janice, were always there to help and encourage the students. He was presented with the Outstanding Educator Award in 2000 by the 20,000-member Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists.
Bruce raised more than $2-million for Canada FIRST, but funding the program was always a struggle. He mortgaged his house and often put up his own money to pay the bills. He supplemented his income by chairing federal tribunals in both English and French to settle unemployment insurance disputes.
Bruce also placed Canada first in other ways. He was fascinated by politics and was a frequent and perceptive letter-to-the-editor writer on political issues. During the referendum of 1995, he started his own campaign to keep Quebec within Canada. He placed an ad in The Globe and Mail asking Canadians to join him. He presented the many letters and e-mails he received to Quebec politicians before the referendum, to demonstrate the Friendship of other Canadians. A gifted speaker, Bruce also appeared at unity rallies and town hall meetings. Along with 11 other "ordinary" Canadians, he participated in the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation program 72 Hours to Remake Canada on the future of Confederation.
Bruce believed that Canada didn't honour its heroes enough. He became close Friends with James FLOYD, a patron of Canada FIRST. As head of design and engineering for Avro Canada, Jim played a central role in the development of some of the greatest planes in Canadian aviation, including the Avro Arrow. Bruce established a robotics design award in his name and raised money for the Canada FIRST Jim Floyd Scholarship at the new University of Ontario Institute of Technology. After Bruce died, Jim asked that the scholarship be re-dedicated to his friend.
Bruce's life was defined by his energy and generosity, his love for his family and country, and the pride he took in his many Friends and the young people he helped.
Andy is Bruce's friend.
