FRANKS, Gladys Evelyn (née BATCHELOR)
Gladys Evelyn FRANKS was born in Proton Township, May 19, 1914 and entered eternal rest April 14, 2005 at Dufferin Oaks. She was the fifth child of Samuel and Edith (CAMPBELL) BATCHELOR. Gladys is survived by one sister, Elva DUNN, Toronto, and two brothers Ernie (Eunice), Collingwood and Fred (Melrose) of Orangeville.
Gladys was predeceased by her husband Osborne who was killed in a construction accident, December, 1946, one sister Ila FARR and four brothers - John, Edward, Wilfred and Robert, an infant son and a grand_son Tim FRANKS. Gladys' children are Russell (Arlene) of Orangeville, Marie HODGKINSON, Toronto, Leslie (Isabell) of Dundalk, Delbert (Diane) of Orangeville, and Keith (Pat) of Dundalk. Gladys' grandchildren are: Wilda (Bob) HARDING, Jeff (Diane) FRANKS, Mark (Sonya) FRANKS, Dawn (Scott) HIGGINSON, Tammy (Paul) NIXON, Jeremy FRANKS, Rob (Jenn) FRANKS, Gaye FRANKS, Scott (Kristin) FRANKS. Great-grandchildren are: Jennifer (Rick) JOHNSTON, Chris HARDING, Carter, Jordan, Tanner, Natalie, Ryan, Tyler FRANKS and Courtney, Kristen, Ashley NIXON.
Gladys was raised at Saugeen Junction, north of Proton Station. Her parents were farmers, and then bought the brick yard at Proton Station, then returned later to farming. Their children all knew what hard work was. Gladys and her siblings attended public school at Proton Station and as a young girl worked at home and did housekeeping for neighbours.
Gladys and Osborne were married in 1935, farming in the south of Proton, then to Artemesia Township and settling on the 3rd Line of Osprey, near Hatherton. With a family of five children, times being hard in the forties, Osborne worked with Greenwood Construction as well as farming. It was while Osborne was away at work that the tragic news was received of Osborne's sudden death, December 2, 1946 in a construction accident. Gladys was left a widow and five children to raise. Being the strong and courageous person she was, she struggled on and with the help of family, community and Friends, Gladys kept farming and raising her children and teaching them skills of life. She was always so appreciative of the help she received in those difficult years. Gladys farmed until 1970, when she sold the farm and moved to her newly built home in Dundalk.
In Dundalk, Gladys enjoyed her home, family gatherings, gardening, community events, hockey and baseball, senior tours, bingo and her growing family of grandchildren. Gladys lived in her home in Dundalk until March 2004. With failing health she sold her home and in June moved to Dufferin Oaks. She enjoyed her new experience of living at Dufferin Oaks; adjusting well and going to events as her health allowed. She enjoyed the staff there, loved the visits of everyone who came by. As her health failed she was given special attention by Dufferin Oaks and Palliative care. Gladys passed away on April 14, almost reaching the grand age of 91.
Her funeral was held April 18 at the McMillan and Jack Funeral Home, Dundalk with burial following at Community of Christ Cemetery. The service was officiated by Elder John RICHARDSON and Evangelist Rod McLEAN, a family friend. Eulogies were delivered by Wilda HARDING, Tammy NIXON, Delbert FRANKS and Ken WEATHERALL (Osprey neighbour.) Honourary pallbearers were Orval BRODERICK, Ken WEATHERALL, Bob HARDING, Grant FRASER and Dennis MILLS.

FRANKS, Gladys Evelyn (née BATCHELOR)
Gladys Evelyn FRANKS was born in Proton Township, May 19, 1914 and entered eternal rest April 14, 2005 at Dufferin Oaks. She was the fifth child of Samuel and Edith (CAMPBELL) BATCHELOR. Gladys is survived by one sister, Elva DUNN, Toronto, and two brothers Ernie (Eunice), Collingwood and Fred (Melrose) of Orangeville.
Gladys was predeceased by her husband Osborne who was killed in a construction accident, December, 1946, one sister Ila FARR and four brothers - John, Edward, Wilfred and Robert, an infant son and a grand_son Tim FRANKS. Gladys' children are Russell (Arlene) of Orangeville, Marie HODGKINSON, Toronto, Leslie (Isabell) of Dundalk, Delbert (Diane) of Orangeville, and Keith (Pat) of Dundalk. Gladys' grandchildren are: Wilda (Bob) HARDING, Jeff (Diane) FRANKS, Mark (Sonya) FRANKS, Dawn (Scott) HIGGINSON, Tammy (Paul) NIXON, Jeremy FRANKS, Rob (Jenn) FRANKS, Gaye FRANKS, Scott (Kristin) FRANKS. Great-grandchildren are: Jennifer (Rick) JOHNSTON, Chris HARDING, Carter, Jordan, Tanner, Natalie, Ryan, Tyler FRANKS and Courtney, Kristen, Ashley NIXON.
Gladys was raised at Saugeen Junction, north of Proton Station. Her parents were farmers, and then bought the brick yard at Proton Station, then returned later to farming. Their children all knew what hard work was. Gladys and her siblings attended public school at Proton Station and as a young girl worked at home and did housekeeping for neighbours.
Gladys and Osborne were married in 1935, farming in the south of Proton, then to Artemesia Township and settling on the 3rd Line of Osprey, near Hatherton. With a family of five children, times being hard in the forties, Osborne worked with Greenwood Construction as well as farming. It was while Osborne was away at work that the tragic news was received of Osborne's sudden death, December 2, 1946 in a construction accident. Gladys was left a widow and five children to raise. Being the strong and courageous person she was, she struggled on and with the help of family, community and Friends, Gladys kept farming and raising her children and teaching them skills of life. She was always so appreciative of the help she received in those difficult years. Gladys farmed until 1970, when she sold the farm and moved to her newly built home in Dundalk.
In Dundalk, Gladys enjoyed her home, family gatherings, gardening, community events, hockey and baseball, senior tours, bingo and her growing family of grandchildren. Gladys lived in her home in Dundalk until March 2004. With failing health she sold her home and in June moved to Dufferin Oaks. She enjoyed her new experience of living at Dufferin Oaks; adjusting well and going to events as her health allowed. She enjoyed the staff there, loved the visits of everyone who came by. As her health failed she was given special attention by Dufferin Oaks and Palliative care. Gladys passed away on April 14, almost reaching the grand age of 91.
Her funeral was held April 18 at the McMillan and Jack Funeral Home, Dundalk with burial following at Community of Christ Cemetery. The service was officiated by Elder John RICHARDSON and Evangelist Rod McLEAN, a family friend. Eulogies were delivered by Wilda HARDING, Tammy NIXON, Delbert FRANKS and Ken WEATHERALL (Osprey neighbour.) Honourary pallbearers were Orval BRODERICK, Ken WEATHERALL, Bob HARDING, Grant FRASER and Dennis MILLS. Grandsons served as pallbearers, namely: Jeff, Mark, Jeremy, Rob and Scott FRANKS, Paul NIXON, Chris HARDING and Scott HIGGINSON. Granddaughters served as flowerbearers - Wilda HARDING, Tammy NIXON, Gaye FRANKS, Dawn HIGGINSON, Jennifer JOHNSTON, Kristin FRANKS and Jennifer MOODY.
Glen WRIGHT, a family friend, sang "Precious Memories" during the service and "Amazing Grace" at the grave site. Elder Fred BATCHELOR, Gladys' brother, offered the benedictory prayer at the service.
Following the committal service, refreshments were served at the Community of Christ.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

LITT operated Farm Tax Services for 25 years
By Sarah FRALEY, Free Press Reporter
When the farmers who hired Clinton LITT to help them with their finances fell on hard times, he was understanding.
"He would take different types of payment," said Laurie GIBSON, his youngest daughter.
"Sometimes for payments he'd bring home a side of beef or a dog.
"He had a great, great, relationship with all of his clients," she said.
"He was extremely optimistic and positive."
LITT, 77, died July 6 after a short battle with lung cancer.
He was the owner and operator of Farm Tax Services for 25 years until he retired in 1992. LITT began the business while living in London. He moved to Moorefield between Palmerston and Mount Forest to be closer to his clients.
"It was a very personalized business... he was known for just sitting at the kitchen table and talking for hours," said Jacquie FRASER, LITT's oldest daughter who now runs the business with her husband Kim.
LITT provided farmers with advice on how to prepare for the future. He worked for about 100 clients and still managed to get to know each one.
"He cared about the individual," said Kim FRASER. "He really looked out for peoples' finances and he wanted to make sure that people invested money."
"As a bookkeeper he was the most diplomatic gentlemen. He was very professional about his work," said Maxine YOUNG, a client and long-time friend of LITT's. "He loved to stay for lunch. He loved homemade pie."
LITT came out to the YOUNG farm in Moorefield three times a year and at year's end to put together income tax returns, and the two families enjoyed travelling together on family trips.
As a young boy, LITT enjoyed horse races because his family farm was bought by the Hanover Raceway and he lived next door most of his childhood.
He grew up in Hanover and was the youngest of five children. At the age of 21, LITT contracted tuberculosis and decided to undergo an operation to collapse one of his lungs.
Breathing problems and asthma were constant worries for him after that, making it difficult for him to attend outdoor activities such as horse racing.
But LITT found other passions such as his business, his family and the Toronto Blue Jays.
"He was an avid, avid Blue Jays fan and never, ever gave up on them," GIBSON said.
"Anytime I was over there and there was a Blue Jays game on, he would listen to you with one ear and listen to the game with the other," YOUNG said.
She described him as good father who was proud of his daughters.
The family built their first home in London in 1963. When their two daughters moved out, LITT and his wife, Shirley, moved to Moorefield.
"They came from London to the country. Shirley adapted very well and she learned to be a country girl."
YOUNG remembers the couple as a perfect pair that worked together at home and at work.
"He had a very good wife at home working in the office. As a team they worked really well together," said YOUNG.
The couple celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary this past January before Clinton was diagnosed with cancer.
"What a great day that was. It was a really pretty party. He looked great," YOUNG said.

BURKET, Elizabeth Ann
After a long and courageous battle with cancer, Elizabeth Ann BURKET, our only daughter has assured us she will be waiting for us in Glory when our time comes. She was taken from us far too soon, only in her 44th year. With so many things she wanted to see and do, she left behind the best of herself in our only grand_son, Paul. Like all of us, her life was filled with many joys, but also many trials. She had asked God to allow her to see her son grow up. She should have asked to see her son married and have children. Finally, she can rest peacefully, no longer weighed down with the worries of this world. Daughter of Paul and Bev BURKET of London, sister of Greg BURKET, special friend of Aunt Bev CRAIG of London and cousin Cindy HERTWIG of R.R.#1 Mossley, Aunt Joy and Allan MacARTHUR of Toronto, George and Diane FRASER of Grimsby, Reverend James and Alberta FRASER of London, John and Fay FRASER of Calgary, John and Anna BURKET of R.R.#4 Thamesford, Uncle George MURRELL of R.R.#3 Thorndale and Aunt Bonnie SIMMS of R.R.#4 Thamesford.

BUTLER, Frank
On April 21, 2005 at Sunnybrook Hospital, Toronto, in his 90th year. Predeceased by his second wife, Jean, in 2003 and by his first wife, Elizabeth "Betty," in 1973. Brother to Suzanne PERRÉARD and Angela BUTLER, both of Geneva, Switzerland, and Charlotte VIDAL (Federico) of Cochiti Lake, New Mexico; brother-in-law to Scott BOWERBANK of Victoria, British Columbia. Father to Veronica BUTLER of Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Michael BUTLER (Diana) and Virginia BUTLER, both of Victoria, British Columbia. Grandfather to Erica HOUSE (Michael FRASER) of Toronto, Jennifer BUTLER and Simon BUTLER, both of Vancouver, British Columbia. Great-grandfather to Tessa FRASER of Toronto. He will be greatly missed by his family and by his many Friends.
Frank was born on June 13, 1915 in Griffithstown, United Kingdom. He was educated at Sherborne School in England and Trinity College, Toronto, after the family emigrated to Canada. Frank spent most of his career with Shell Canada Ltd., where he held positions of increasing responsibility in Toronto and Montreal until his retirement in 1975. During the Second World War, he served as a pilot in the Royal Canadian Air Force, rising to the rank of Squadron Leader. Flying a Hudson bomber from Royal Canadian Air Force bases in the Maritimes, he helped protect Atlantic convoys from enemy submarines. He recalled these years as being the best in his life, particularly as they were also the early years of a very happy marriage to Betty, which began in 1940. Especially happy times with Betty and the children followed construction of a family cottage on Lake Muskoka in the 1960s. After Betty's untimely death, he married Jean McKinley TOOMBS in 1974, beginning a close partnership which lasted almost thirty years. This partnership extended to the business world: after Frank left Shell, they both managed the Canadian operations of the Forty Plus human resources consulting group, which evolved into the Life Management Centre.
Frank's outlook on life was that of the indefatigable optimist and enthusiast. These attributes, combined with a high degree of courage, enabled him stoically to endure his steadily increasing infirmities over the past nine years, including Parkinson's disease.
The family would like to extend a special thanks to Frank's companion, Andrew KERZNER, who over the past two and a half years enabled Frank to enjoy a wide range of worthwhile experiences despite his disabilities. The staff of Briton House are also to be commended for their caring attention during this time.
A memorial service for Frank will be held at St Clement's Anglican Church, 59 Briar Hill Avenue, on May 6 at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Parkinson Society of Canada.

Alex SMART, Hockey Player: 1918-2005
Left winger from the minors set a scoring record in his first National Hockey League game that still stands
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to The Globe and Mail, Friday, June 3, 2005, Page S7
Ottawa -- Alex SMART burst into the National Hockey League like a meteor. In his very first game, on January 14, 1943, he defeated the Chicago Black Hawks single-handed by scoring three goals for the Montreal Canadiens.
His first two goals, scored in the final minute of the second period, came only 14 seconds apart; the third goal occurred in the third period. Final score: Canadiens 5, Black Hawks 1. Along the way, he also racked up an assist. Then 24 and on loan to the Habs from the Montreal Senior Canadiens of the Quebec Senior Hockey League, he set a benchmark for goals scored by a rookie in his first National Hockey League game. The record, which was tied by Real Cloutier of the Quebec Nordiques in 1979, still stands.
Montreal's daily newspapers were delighted. "Amateur Alex SMART Paces Canadiens to Brilliant 5-1 Victory," crowed the The Gazette the following day. Veteran Montreal hockey reporter Baz O'Meara described Mr. SMART, who played left wing, as "a smooth skater with an accent of speed. He is solid enough despite his rather frail appearance, one of those sinewy fellows who shed body checks easily, who is effortless in the extreme."
Mr. SMART, who scored his four points against Chicago goaltender Bert Gardiner, played with Buddy O'Connor and Gordie Drillon. They accounted for four of Montreal's five goals.
Joe GORMAN of Ottawa, the son of Canadiens' general manager, Tommy GORMAN, was in the Forum that night. "Alex impressed me because he was a natural left winger and played his position. Buddy O'Connor was able to feed him passes from centre."
One person who wasn't present in the crowd of 6,549 was Mr. SMART's wife of seven months, Freda. "He was so nervous he didn't want me to go. I went to the show at the Seville Theatre with my girlfriend (instead). I found out what he had done that night when he came home. I couldn't believe it."
Mr. SMART continued to burn up the National Hockey League for another seven games, scoring a total of five goals and two assists, for seven points in eight games. Fellow rookie Maurice "Rocket" Richard needed twice as many games as Mr. SMART to score five goals and six assists before he broke his leg, ending his season. The Rocket, of course, eventually scored 624 goals and hall-of-fame immortality while Mr. SMART found himself back in the minors.
Mr. SMART developed his skills in southern Manitoba during the 1930s. After playing for the Toronto Marlboros and the Verdun Maple Leafs in Montreal, he landed a spot with the Senior Canadiens in 1940. Over the next six years, he scored 86 goals and 188 points over 183 games, some of which were in the service of the Montreal Royals and Montreal Vickers.
It was also in 1940 that he met his wife Freda. "I was going to O'Sullivan Business Collage and he saw me every day. He found out that a girl who lived where he boarded knew me and asked her to arrange an introduction."
To break the ice, Mr. SMART asked Freda -- who wasn't "the least bit interested in hockey" -- if she'd like to attend a game. "He said, 'here's two tickets.' I said, 'I thought I was going with you.' He said, 'no, I'm playing.' "
Mr. SMART and his Senior Canadiens won the game and "from then on, I watched a lot of hockey games," said Mrs. SMART. They were married the day after his 24th birthday. "I told him I was his birthday present."
After the war, Mr. SMART got a job in Ottawa with the Goodyear Tire Company, where he worked for 45 years. He still loved playing hockey and found a spot with the Ottawa Senators of the Quebec league. Over the next four seasons, he was one of the Senator's best point getters. In 1947-48, his best year, Mr. SMART scored 28 goals and 66 points in 47 games.
Besides his eight games in the National Hockey League, the highlight of Mr. SMART's hockey career occurred in the spring of 1949 when the Senators beat the Regina Caps to win the Allan Cup as the best senior amateur club in Canada. They had lost to the Edmonton Flyers the preceding year.
The Senators, all of whom had full-time jobs, were a powerhouse right after the war. The roster included such names as George GREENE, Emile DAGENAIS, Jack McLEAN, Stu SMITH, Legs FRASER, Ray TRAINOR and Ab RENAUD, who, as a member of the Royal Canadian Air Force Flyers, had won a gold medal at the 1948 Winter Olympics.
After he retired as a player, Mr. SMART coached at the local level in Ottawa. He also scouted for the Los Angeles Kings for 25 years.
Alexander SMART was born on May 29, 1918, in Brandon, Manitoba He died of heart disease on April 18, 2005, in Ottawa. He was 86. He leaves his wife, Freda, and daughter Susan. He was predeceased by his daughter Donna Jean.

Farmer-politician was auditor-general's dad
By M.J. STONE, Thursday, June 9, 2005, Page S9
Ottawa -- Ken FRASER was a dairy farmer, a Liberal backbencher in the Quebec National Assembly and the father of Canada's Auditor-General, Sheila FRASER. Mr. FRASER, of Huntingdon, Quebec, died on June 1 in Ottawa. He was 87.
Kenneth James FRASER was born in Dundee, Quebec, on October 17, 1917, and later took over the family farm that had belonged to the FRASERs since 1820. In 1950, he was elected to the Dundee town council. Sixteen years later, he won a seat in the National Assembly in the riding of Huntingdon by 45 votes.
During his tenure, he worked tirelessly toward the creation of the Huntingdon County Hospital. But he had a falling out with the Liberals in 1974 after then premier Robert Bourassa introduced Bill 22. Mr. FRASER resented the language legislation, he said, because it undermined individual rights. He lost his seat in the 1976 election.

CARTER, Marjory Edna (née GARDNER)
Madge CARTER passed away peacefully in Toronto early Saturday morning, the 6th of August, having just reached her 93rd birthday on Friday. Mom enjoyed good health throughout her life, only losing mobility and memory over these last two years. She is predeceased by her husband Walt (Alexander Walter CARTER) who passed away in January. She is survived by two of her sisters, Patricia (Pat) FOX and Wilhelmina (Billy) FRASER. Mom and Dad were married for 68 years and have three married children, Brian (Charlotte,) Judy (Jerry HOMENUK,) and Tom (Louise.) There are lots of grandchildren who are going to miss 'grandma': Meghan, Amelia, and Andrew (Andrea) CARTER; Kim (Andy BURNHAM,) David, and Jill HOMENUK; and Jeff (Lianne) HODGINS, Krista (Todd) VANZUILEKOM, and Matthew (Nicole) CARTER. She also leaves two great-grandchildren, Avery and Charlie BURNHAM. Mom grew up in the Beach area of Toronto and was the second youngest in a family of nine girls. While the family didn't have 'a league of their own', Mom loved all types of sports, most notably tennis and speed skating. She spent a lot of time on the Kew Beach tennis courts and had the trophies to show for it. Saint John's Norway Anglican Church was an important focus for social activities and it was at a church dance where she met Dad. Mom was always cheerful, and while she worked in the 'early years', most of her years, and her love, were centred on being at home and bringing up her three children. She took up golf and worked in a women's fashion shop in her mature years so that she could always be 'keeping busy', staying in contact with people, and making new Friends; everyone 'took to Mom' right away. Our special thanks to the Salvation Army and the staff of the Isabel and Arthur Meighen Manor who took excellent care of Mom over her last two years. The Salvation Army was always Mom's favourite, and she knitted several hundred pairs of mittens over two decades for its Christmas bazaars. A donation to the Salvation Army in Mom's memory would be most appreciated.

James GUILLET, Chemist and Teacher: (1927-2005)
University of Toronto professor figured out how to produce polymers that will degrade or break down plastic litter in sunlight, writes Sandra MARTIN. He discovered he could 'make it disappear'
By Sandra MARTIN, Saturday, October 1, 2005, Page S7
A "green" chemist, James GUILLET was fascinated by photosynthesis in plants and the wonders that nature could create with solar light and water. He wanted to mimic the function of natural systems in his laboratory.
As a scientist, he was a pioneer in establishing photochemistry and photophysics of the polymer system as an important and separate discipline in chemistry. As an inventor, he used his scientific discoveries in practical applications for human and environmental benefit. During his lifetime he registered more than 100 patents, including a process for making plastics (such as foam coffee cups and fast food clam-shell containers) decompose in sunlight, and an agricultural mulch film That smothers weeds during the growing season and then breaks down into the soil in the winter.
Although he was honoured as a scientist, he did not see his progressive ideas widely embraced by industry and government in this country. On the contrary, he was frustrated by self-interested environmentalists and paper manufacturers who lobbied against the industrial use of his "man-made plastics."
He was revered by colleagues and students, many of whom called him "the Boss" and came from around the world to work with him. "He was not the professor with blinders on his eyes who could only see science," says his Polish colleague Maria NOWAKOWSKA. He loved opera and theatre, growing orchids, swimming and sailing at the family cottage he designed and built nearly 50 years ago.
James Edwin GUILLET was born into an academic Toronto family his father, Edwin, was a prominent historian and the author of Early Life in Upper Canada, among many other books. They lived in the Annex neighbourhood of the city before moving to the suburbs when Jim was 12. Summers were spent with their Ohio relatives at on Horseshoe Island in Stoney Lake near Peterborough.
Musician Sue POLANYI went there, too, as a child because her father was the Anglican Minister at the rectory on the island. "He was immensely handsome as a young man," remembers Ms. POLANYI, and he "grew up to have a grip on business like no other chemist" because he "wasn't a dreamer -- he was a practical man."
After attending Huron Street School, young Jim GUILLET went to the University of Toronto Schools and then the University of Toronto. He joined the campus camera club, winning first prize in a photography contest judged by Yousuf KARSH, with a black and white picture called "Valley of the Shadows" that he had taken of the rocks in the creek at the bottom of his parents' East York home. Prof. GUILLET always attributed his success in finding summer jobs at Eastman Kodak to his early passion for photography.
He graduated from the University of Toronto with an honours degree in physics and chemistry in 1948. Unable to find a job in Canada, he began working fulltime as a research chemist for Eastman Kodak, first, in Rochester and, then, in Kingsport, Tennessee.
During the day, he worked on new types of graft and block copolymers but spent his evenings enjoying the company of Helen BIRCHER, a young university graduate from Nashville, Tennessee., who had recently moved to Kingsport to work for the Girl Scouts. "It was a very small town and everybody knew everybody and we had a ball," she said, "dating and hiking and parties and church." They were married in 1953 in Nashville.
The next year, the GUILLETs went to Saint John's College, Cambridge, in England. Rationing was still in effect, the best form of transport was a bicycle, and they found lodging in a thatched cottage. He studied under R.G.W. Norrish, a future Nobel laureate, earning his Ph. D in photochemistry in 1955. Twenty years later, the university honoured him with an Sc. D, a doctor of science.
After Cambridge, the GUILLETs went back to Kodak in Kingsport, where all four of their children were born. James worked as senior research chemist and later research associate in charge of polyolefin research before joining the chemistry department at the University of Toronto as an associate professor in 1963. At the time, he had 30 U.S. patents and had published 20 scientific papers.
John POLANYI, a future Nobel laureate in chemistry, was on the hiring committee. "He had a great string of patents to his name and we worried that he wasn't going to fit into academe," he remembered, noting the cultural disparities between industry and the "ivory towers."
Fears that Prof. GUILLET's approach might be too commercial proved groundless. In 1969, he was promoted to full professor and named professor emeritus in 1991. "His bent was to do academic science and to figure out why things happened the way they did, rather than how useful they were," said Prof. POLANYI. "He warned all the time against letting the applications of science dominate the university agenda."
At the time, polymer chemistry wasn't a particularly sexy field. That changed largely because of Prof. GUILLET's work. Hearkening back to his early interest in light and shadow in photography, Prof. GUILLET's main areas of research involved studying the way polymers react to light. Polymers are large molecules made from smaller and simpler molecules. They can be artificial, such as plastics, or natural, such as proteins and DNA. Before his time, people were interested in how light reacts with small molecules and he advanced the science with large molecules.
This research led to one of his most important discoveries: how to produce polymers that will degrade or break down in sunlight. In other words, a potential antidote to much of the world's litter problems.
In true scientific fashion, the solution came to him while he was working with his students on the opposite problem: creating a polymer that is resistant to the sun's rays. Electrical wires, which are insulated with plastic, have to be replaced every so often because the sun rots the plastic, making it useless as an insulator.
In 1969, while Prof. GUILLET was working on developing sun-hardy polymers, he went on vacation with his wife Helen to Andros Island in the Bahamas. Disturbed by the litter floating ashore from cruise ships, he realized he could "make it disappear," according to Mrs. GUILLET. All he had to do was to create polymers that were less resistant to ultraviolet rays from the sun.
And of course he did. He registered three patents for photodegradable polymers in 1970, assigning the rights to the U of T. That same year, he started a high-tech company called EcoPlastics to manufacture ecolyte bio-cyclic plastics. The company, which also did contract research on tar sands and greenhouse films, was never able to raise the necessary capital in Canada. A Dutch deal collapsed after the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries oil crisis of the 1970s. About 50 per cent of EcoPlastics was acquired by a American entrepreneur in 1986.
Instead of a stock-market bonanza for the U of T, Prof. GUILLET was awarded a Lindbergh Grant worth $10,000 in recognition of his efforts to create a better balance between technology and the environment. He and a colleague were also awarded a gold medal and Canada's patent number 1,000,000 for inventing photodegradable plastics. Some years later, a cynical Prof. GUILLET observed, "It is perhaps a measure of the government's commitment to science and technology that the medal turned out to be gold plated!"
During his career, James GUILLET published nearly 300 scientific papers and wrote 80 patent applications. He founded two other companies besides EcoPlastics. Medi-Pro Sciences Ltd., which was incorporated in 1976, did research on artificial skin and medical applications of plastics. Solarchem Corporation (1984) tried to develop pharmaceuticals and specialty chemicals for pollution control using sunlight as the primary energy source.
He was elected to the Royal Society of Canada and awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1981, a Killam Research Fellowship in 1987 and the International Award of the Society of Polymer Science in 1999. During his career, he supervised 28 Ph. D. theses, 26 masters degrees and 50 post-doctoral fellows and research associates.
He immersed himself in the lives and problems of his students and the scientists who came from around the world to work with him. "I thought he was a wonderful person who cared about his students and would spend hours and hours tutoring them if they were having a problem," says Susan ARBUCKLE, his secretary since she moved here from California in 1971.
That sentiment was echoed by John FRASER, Master of Massey College at the U of T, who called on Prof. GUILLET a number of times to mentor troubled science students. "He was just incredible," said Mr. FRASER. "He knew what their log jam was and who they should speak to." He also gave the college two Paul Kane portraits that had belonged to his father.
One of his research associates was Maria NOWAKOWSKA, now vice-rector for research and international relations at Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland. Back in the early 1970s, Prof. NOWAKOWSKA, then a Ph. D student, went to an international conference in Prague, one of the few places she could visit before the fall of communism. Prof. GUILLET, who was the keynote speaker, spoke with her after her presentation because he "always had the idea to approach young people who needed his hand and his help," Prof. NOWAKOWSKA said by telephone from her home this week.
He invited her to work in his lab, a trip she couldn't make for 15 years because of work and family commitments and the hurdles erected by the state to keep her from defecting to the West. She says his lab, then, was the best in the world in photophysics and photochemistry and "supervisors were fighting" to find places for their students "to work with Jim GUILLET."
She arrived with no luggage, no place to stay, no computer, and almost no cash, so Prof. GUILLET took her home where she was treated as a member of the family and given a bed until she found a place to live. It was the beginning of an international collaboration that continued until his death. Working with him was like being in "a volcano of ideas," she said. "People respected him and each other."
She met with him for the last time before Prof. GUILLET underwent heart surgery in August. Even in hospital he was still encouraging her to pursue new patents on natural polymers and publish the results.
James Edwin GUILLET was born in Toronto on January 14, 1927. He died September 23, 2005, from complications following successful bypass surgery. He is survived by his wife, two siblings, four children and nine grandchildren.

Forces instructor dies parachuting at Trenton
By Colin FREEZE and Unnati GANDHI, Tuesday, October 4, 2005, Page A2
A military paratrooper instructor was killed yesterday during a training exercise, the second time in as many years that there has been a fatal accident at Canadian Forces Base Trenton.
Warrant Officer Charles SHEPPARD, 43, was pronounced dead at 12: 45 p.m. on a day of clear skies and light winds, officials said.
"The cause is under investigation," said Lieutenant Morgan BAILEY, a spokeswoman for the military. "The soldier was an experienced jumper."
She said Warrant Officer SHEPPARD, who had completed more than 2,500 jumps and had been in the Canadian Forces for 19 years, was leading a freefall course at the base's Mountain View detachment.
"Warrant Officer SHEPPARD and I soldiered together for many years and I knew him as a passionate and professional leader," said Colonel David FRASER, Commander of 1 Canadian Mechanized Brigade Group.
Warrant Officer SHEPPARD, originally from Galt, Ontario, was temporarily working at the Canadian Parachute Centre Canadian Forces Base Trenton. He was attached to the 3rd Battalion of Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry in Edmonton.
The parachute centre at Trenton trains hundreds of soldiers for both military operations and search and rescue missions, and also the Sky Hawks jumping team, which performs at dozens of events each year.
In September of 2003, Lieutenant Colonel Mike BLANCHETTE, the commander of the Trenton parachute centre, was killed when he detached his parachute too early as he jumped from a helicopter above the Bay of Quinte. A coroner eventually determined that Lt. Col. BLANCHETTE, a 30-year veteran, died an accidental death, and ruled out equipment failure.
Fatal accidents involving military submarines and Snowbird airplanes have attracted much attention in recent months, but the Canadian Forces has also seen its share of parachute problems over the years.
Earlier this year a "severe landing" caused a soldier to be hospitalized for serious back and hip injuries, as well as a collapsed vertebrae, after an accident at the parachute centre.
In 2002, two Alberta soldiers got their parachutes entangled during search and rescue training, but escaped with only minor injuries after managing to untangle themselves at the last minute.
In 1998, a soldier broke his leg after hitting a tree during a performance at the International Air Show in Toronto.
In 1989, nine Canadian paratroopers with the Airborne Regiment died during a car accident and airplane crash that occurred within two days. The previous year, a Canadian Forces paratrooper died during a recreational jump at the Ganonoque airport.
In 1981, a private with the Airborne died on his fourth jump, a "freak accident".

BLAKE, Beatrice May
At the age of 95 and in complete peace, May BLAKE passed away on October 19, 2005. May was care-giver extraordinaire to many children who remember her fondly and with love throughout their adulthood. She was trained as a nanny in England and joined her first family as a caregiver as a young teenager, no older than 15. She emigrated to Canada about 1932. Throughout her early years as a nanny in Canada, May befriended and looked out for other British nannies who would come to Toronto on two-year visas to care for the children of Canadian families. May brought them into the community of other nannies, made sure that they became acquainted with Toronto and sent them home again at the end of two years with farewell parties.
The adults for whom she cared as children and that she called "her charges" owe their values of honesty, integrity, generosity towards others and good humour to her teachings as they grew from infancy through childhood into eventual maturity. May was always proud of the achievements of "her charges" and followed their successes in life, sending congratulations their way and still providing advice as they made their path through life.
May has been a staunch supporter of Saint Margaret's Anglican Church for more than 70 years. Up until two years ago, she was a regular supporter of Saint Margaret's annual Christmas bazaar and rummage sales. She was a frequent visitor to the sick and shut-ins of her congregation. May BLAKE's life was a happy and fulfilled one.
May will be fondly remembered by her many Friends at her Church, including Muriel CAESAR, Len and Jean SOUTH, Trevor and Muriel McCONNELL and Jean FRASER.
She will also be lovingly remembered by "her charges" currently living in Canada, Edward BULMAN and his sister Elizabeth, Nadine, Jon and Paul LEVIN, Sean and Kalen McCOWAN, Denise DELLIO, and Alexandra and Laura ROBINSON. Jean SHAWN, George LEVIN, Anna JOHNSTON (formerly McCOWAN), Perry and Rae DELLIO, Michael ROBINSON and Dr. Gail ROBINSON, and all remember the fine and loving care May BLAKE provided for their children and the tremendous contribution she made to their family life.
Those who wish to celebrate May BLAKE's life may join together at Saint Margaret's Anglican Church, 53 Burnaby Boulevard, Toronto on Monday, October 24, 2005 at 1 p.m. May loved children all of her life and donations in her memory to Save the Children Canada, 300-4141 Yonge Street, Toronto M2P 2A8, would be greatly appreciated.

FRASER, Christopher Edwin Jr.
With the unconditional support of his soulmate Kay and his children Marie (HOUGHTON,) Colin, Patricia (MANN) and Karen, on his own terms and very much at peace, Christopher embraced the motto of the Clan Fraser: "Je Suis Prest" and completed the pilgrimage that was his life on March 1st, 2005. His parents (deceased) Christopher FRASER Sr. and Madeline FRASER (née BURNS,) his siblings Sr. Dorothy FRASER, C.S.J., Donald (Elinor,) Elizabeth (Lino MARCON,) and Sr. Janet FRASER, C.S.J., Donna FRASER, his sons-in-law John HOUGHTON and Peter MANN, Sandee, Joe and his grandchildren Andrew, Emily, Adon, Spencer, FRASER and Sonny were also in his thoughts with his nieces and nephews. Christopher loved God. He loved his 73 years of life, his family and his Friends and these loved him and gave him great and sustaining joy. "Moose" was ever the consummate teacher and de facto preacher. He always indulged an unquenchable thirst for lively debate and discussion, peppered with true Fraser humour. Summers were only complete if spent at the Cottage. The news of his illness brought spontaneous stories from across North America of his having made people feel valued and loved. He learned that those whom time and geography had made to seem distant had always kept him close in their hearts and minds because of his enduring influence on them. God's unconditional love that His creations are beautiful and precious and that as Christians we should act as our brother Jesus, were a constant theme in Chris' life with family, Friends, students and fellow educators. Christopher built community and modelled love for the individual. His influence on so many lives will long outlast his all too brief time on this Earth. Visitation will be held at Blessed Trinity Church, 3220 Bayview Avenue, Toronto on Friday, March 4, 2005 from 1: 00-2:00 p.m. Mass celebrating Christopher's life will follow at 2: 00 p.m. A reception will immediately follow the Mass. A private burial service will take place in Lindsay, Ontario. Arrangements entrusted to the Mackey Funeral Home, 33 Peel Street, Lindsay (705-328-2721). As a founding director of the "Friends of Shopping Bag Ladies" Christopher requested that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made in his memory to the shelter that supports these women in downtown Toronto (416 Dundas Street East, Toronto, Ontario M5A 2A8).

Crash kills mom, son
Man charged with impaired driving
Other car hits police at scene
By Madhavi Acharya-Tom YEW, Staff Reporter
A Mississauga man is facing impaired driving charges after an accident Saturday left an Etobicoke mother and her adult son dead.
The collision also sent three other family members, including a six-year-old girl, to hospital.
A few hours later, three police officers who were investigating the crash were injured after another driver sped into the crash scene. That driver also faces impaired charges.
At 6 p.m. Saturday, an eastbound car on Finch Ave. W. at Islington Ave. rear-ended a slower-moving vehicle, police said.
The impact caused the second vehicle to spin out of control and enter the westbound lanes on Finch, where it was struck by a third vehicle.
The crash killed Dora RUIZ, 54, and her son Allan RUIZ, 22, both of Etobicoke.
The six-year-old girl, who was in the RUIZes' car with her mother and father, remains at the Hospital for Sick Children with internal injuries.
Her mother is being treated for fractures at Sunnybrook hospital and her father was treated at Sunnybrook for minor injuries and released. "We're all still in shock. This type of situation, you don't know what to do," Priscilla RUIZ, daughter of Dora and older sister to Allan, said in a brief interview yesterday.
Knolly RAMPERSAD, 34, has been charged with impaired driving causing death, impaired driving causing bodily harm and failure to stop after an accident involving death.
Police closed Finch Ave. between Kipling and Islington Saturday night to investigate the accident.
According to police, a vehicle eastbound on Finch went around a police vehicle used to divert traffic at 11: 25 p.m. The speeding vehicle struck three police vehicles at the scene of the original collision.
The driver was arrested. Three officers and the driver were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Michael Charles FRASER, 27, of Mississauga has been charged with impaired driving, refusing a breath sample and assault on a peace officer.

He was intensely committed to his music ministry, both at St. Alfred's in St. Catharines and at St. Michael's in Oakville. A long serving Rotarian and Paul Harris Fellow, Ivor was deeply involved with the Rotary Club of St. Catharines. He truly lived by the Rotary motto, "Service Above Self."

CARTER, Marjory Edna (née GARDNER)
Madge CARTER passed away peacefully in Toronto early Saturday morning, the 6th of August, 2005 having just reached her 93rd birthday on Friday. Mom enjoyed good health throughout her life, only losing mobility and memory over these last two years. She is predeceased by her husband Walt (Alexander Walter CARTER) who passed away in January. She is survived by two of her sisters, Patricia (Pat) FOX and Wilhelmina (Billy) FRASER. Mom and Dad were married for 68 years and have three married children, Brian (Charlotte,) Judy (Jerry HOMENUK,) and Tom (Louise.) There are lots of grandchildren who are going to miss 'grandma': Meghan, Amelia, and Andrew (Andrea) CARTER; Kim (Andy BURNHAM,) David, and Jill HOMENUK; and Jeff (Lianne) HODGINS, Krista (Todd) VANZUILEKOM, and Matthew (Nicole) CARTER. She also leaves two great-grandchildren, Avery and Charlie BURNHAM. Mom grew up in the Beach area of Toronto and was the second youngest in a family of nine girls. While the family didn't have 'a league of their own', Mom loved all types of sports, most notably tennis and speed skating. She spent a lot of time on the Kew Beach tennis courts and had the trophies to show for it. Saint John's Norway Anglican Church was an important focus for social activities and it was at a church dance where she met Dad. Mom was always cheerful, and while she worked in the 'early years', most of her years, and her love, were centred on being at home and bringing up her three children. She took up golf and worked in a women's fashion shop in her mature years so that she could always be 'keeping busy', staying in contact with people, and making new Friends; everyone 'took to Mom' right away. Our special thanks to the Salvation Army and the staff of the Isabel and Arthur Meighen Manor who took excellent care of Mom over her last two years. The Salvation Army was always Mom's favourite, and she knitted several hundred pairs of mittens over two decades for its Christmas bazaars. A donation to the Salvation Army in Mom's memory would be most appreciated.
