SARAZIN taught art of life
By Ian GILLESPIE, Free Press Columnist, Sat, December 3, 2005
The obituary says Barry SARAZIN taught radio broadcasting at Fanshawe College. But with all due respect, I think they got that a bit wrong.
SARAZIN died Tuesday at Parkwood Hospital after a six-year battle with prostate cancer. He left a wife, two children and two grandchildren. He was 58 years old.
SARAZIN's radio career started in Blind River, then bounced him through studios in Sault Ste. Marie, Ottawa, Smiths Falls and Oshawa. He had the requisite "radio voice" -- that perfectly modulated tone that, when it's done well, can flow from a plastic box and into your head like a lover's whisper.
Some radio guys have that -- and sometimes, that's enough. But SARAZIN had something more.
In 1973, he landed at Fanshawe College in the communication arts program. Five years later, he helped launch the college station CIXX-FM -- popularly known as 6X-FM. It was the first time an FM licence had been granted to a Canadian college.
He taught at Fanshawe for 28 years, for a while taking the role of program co-ordinator. Along the way, he handled the weekend morning duties on CFPL-AM 980 -- an aspect that added a real-life edge of experience to his classroom sessions.
Bob COLLINS, co-ordinator of broadcast programs at Fanshawe College, figures SARAZIN taught more than 1,300 students during those years.
After SARAZIN was diagnosed with cancer in 1999, he accepted a reduced workload. Although it sounds as if there was nothing "reduced" about the impact he had.
"I know he was standing in front of the class and suffering," says COLLINS. " But he was still committed to delivering a quality education. You just had to watch the man to see how he set the tone for his life. It was admirable."
Glynis TUCKER was one of SARAZIN's students. Today, TUCKER handles corporate communications for London's city hall. But 17 years ago, she was a cocky college student who got one of SARAZIN's famous "blue letters" -- a typewritten disciplinary note delivered in a blue envelope.
"He was like a captain," she says, adding he often spoke of his love of sailing. "He was the captain of his ship, the captain of the program and the captain of his life."
BOB-FM announcer Skye SYLVAIN, who studied at Fanshawe in the late '80s, remembers SARAZIN as a man with "an elegant demeanour" who taught his students about radio, yes -- but something else, too.
"He was trying to offer us everything he'd experienced and funnel it back to us in a way that would help us navigate whatever perils we'd face," says SYLVAIN.
Deborah O'GRADY works as an announcer at BOB-FM and a human resources representative at a local medical lab. She remembers SARAZIN as a formal, reserved but passionate man who was known to sport an ascot at social events.
"He was very much a father figure to us, and some people rebelled against that," says O'GRADY, who studied with SARAZIN 20 years ago. "But then two or three years out of college, we realized, wait a second -- Barry knew what he was talking about."
O'GRADY recalls the day SARAZIN spent an hour teaching students how to budget their time and money. O'GRADY says "we all sort of groaned" because they didn't think they needed to know that stuff.
But of course, they did.
Brad GIBB is music director at FM-96. He remembers SARAZIN as a "well-mannered, proper guy" who'd remove his eyeglasses, wave them in the air and breathe in through his teeth before he told you what you'd done wrong.
"It sounds really cliched, but he really was an inspiration," says GIBB. "And not just how to be a good worker in the broadcast business, but to be a good person in general."
In an e-mail, longtime Fanshawe co-worker Ray WILMOT recalls the day SARAZIN told him about the cancer that would ultimately take his life.
"There was I, sitting across from him at a picnic table on the grass outside the cafeteria, crying," writes WILMOT. "And there was Barry, reaching over to grip my forearm, comforting me."
Like I said, the obituary stated SARAZIN taught broadcasting. But it sounds as if he taught people a bit more than that.

REID, Ewart Percival
After a brief illness, Ewart REID passed away at the General Hospital in Ottawa on June 15, 2005, at age 94. He is survived by his son Malcolm and wife Réjeanne CYR of Quebec City, and by his son Ian and partner Andrea MURPHY, who were with him at the end.
Ewart was the son of John Addison REID and Alma (CRISPIN) REID. Born in 1910 in Regina, he grew up in Toronto and Montreal. He received his B.A. and M.A. in economics from McGill, studying with Stephen Leacock. His master's studies took him to a Doukhobor community in western Canada, and he recounted their lifeways in his thesis.
His early career was with the Department of Agriculture in Ottawa. A second career took shape with the U.N.'s World Food Program, in Rome, New Delhi and Ankara.
Ewart had two granddaughters, Nadine SPIDLA of Vancouver, and Joëlle REID of Toronto. Doing field work in Peru, Joëlle said: "Ewart had a sense of adventure, so he understood mine."
Ewart was a lifelong socialist and supported the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation from its beginnings. He was also a sports enthusiast, with a longstanding commitment to the Habs and Expos.
During his studies at McGill in the 1930s, Ewart met and married Charlotte CLARE of St. Andrews, Manitoba. They were together for 25 years, and separated in 1960. Afterwards, Ewart married Dorothy MOXLEY of Ottawa, who went with him on postings in India and Turkey. She died in 1975. Ewart later married Seval UNAN of Ankara, Turkey, who survives him. Ewart was predeceased by siblings Howard REID of Montreal, Margaret TALBOT of Lachine, and Eleanor GIBBARD of Morgantown, West Virginia.
Friends and colleagues are invited to remember Ewart on what would have been his 95th birthday, on Wed., July 6, at 2 p.m. at a gathering at Beechwood Cemetery, Sir Sandford Fleming Room in Ottawa.

DAVIS, Lester Scott
Les DAVIS was born in Toronto April 15, 1909 and died peacefully at Sunnybrook Hospital, August 11, 2005. He will be remembered by everyone for his intelligence, his constancy and his generous caring spirit. Raised in downtown Toronto, he graduated from the U. of T. in the midst of The Depression. He began what proved to be a lifelong career of mutual admiration and respect with Manulife, starting as a summer mortgage clerk, and retiring as financial vice-president 42 years later. Les married Millicent (Minty) CORRIGAN, his high school sweetheart in 1935. They had three children - Peter, Michael and Sally and lived in steady quiet harmony until Minty's death in 1982. His subsequent marriage to Marion GIBBARD in 1985 was another admirable union: gentle, respectful, and mutually nurturing. Marion passed away in 2001. Soon after, Les began his struggle with Alzheimer's. Up to that time, however, Les held many roles and responsibilities in his wider community. In over 60 years of membership at Fairlawn Heights United Church he was steward, trustee and elder, choir member, fundraiser and chair of many committees. He served on the boards of several Toronto area charities both before and well after retirement. He was the classic organizer who people counted on. Les loved playing piano and was the leader of a Vancouver dance band in the 30's. Throughout the years, his easy musicianship brought the pleasures of those times to life for his family, Friends and associates. Later, as Alzheimer's rapdily circumscribed his other talents, he continued to play for any who asked - capable, selfless and generous, almost to the end. He will be missed by all who knew him. A Memorial Service to celebrate his life will be held at Fairlawn Heights United Church (Fairlawn Ave., just west of Yonge St. 416-481-6848) on Monday, August 22, at 11 a.m. Visitors are welcome to meet before the service from 10: 15 to 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Ontario Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated by his family.

Police lay murder charge
Slashed tires and a broken window were found at the home of a slain woman.
By John HERBERT, Free Press Reporter
A young London woman is dead and a London man she knew has been charged with murder in the city's first homicide of the year. Police did not reveal the identity of the woman, who was found dead at 4: 15 a.m. yesterday at her home at 875 Thistledown Way, Unit 5.
But neighbours say the body was that of Laura WILSON, a woman in her early 20s who had recently left her boyfriend.
James William VANDERSANDEN, 23, of 485 Castlegrove Blvd., is charged with first-degree murder, break and enter, criminal harassment, mischief under $5,000 and assault with a weapon.
Police would not say what their relationship was but did confirm they knew each other.
"They had an association," said Det. Sgt. John PARE.
Police would not identify the woman until after an autopsy was completed.
"We spoke to her family, but we can't release the name. It's got to be done the proper way," PARÉ said.
Police would not say what weapon was used.
A shocked neighbour said Wilson lived alone in her mother's condo in the quiet, mostly-seniors Rembrandt Heights condominium complex, just west of the intersection of Wonderland and Sarnia roads.
WILSON had been living with a boyfriend, but recently returned to her mother's place, the neighbour said.
The condo is for sale and WILSON's mother and a younger sister had already moved out, the neighbour said.
WILSON was planning to live in the condo until it was sold, then move in with her mother, she said.
Police confirmed the dead woman was living alone.
But another woman was in the condo at the time of the attack, PARÉ said.
She suffered knife wounds and bleeding, fled the condo and called police from a neighbour's place, police said.
VANDERSANDEN was arrested about 5 a.m. after a short foot chase that ended near the London Aquatic Centre, in the backyard of a home on Blue Forest Place.
Yesterday morning, a silver Chrysler Sebring was parked in front of the condo, with three of its tires slashed.
A large front window near the entrance to the condo was smashed.
"I'm very shocked. She was a very nice woman," said neighbour Dave ROBERTS.
"I heard ambulances about 4: 30 in the morning, but I never heard any noise until then. I looked out the window and all the police were here."
"Nothing like this happens around here," added shocked neighbour Michael GIBBONS.
There were five homicides in London last year.
The most recent victim was William Gordon (Bill) SMITH, who was found face down in gravel outside his apartment at 206 Clarence St. near Simcoe Street November 16.
