John GLADSTONE, Cleric And Orator 1921-2005
Handsome, eloquent and blessed with a keen intelligence, the Baptist minister was 'a pulpit virtuoso' who cultivated a large and loyal Toronto congregation, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Saturday, January 22, 2005 - Page S7
A passionate soccer fan, an avid reader of spy thrillers and a man of unwavering faith, John GLADSTONE was such a compelling preacher that he drew celebrants to his Toronto pulpit from as far away as Michigan. For more than 30 years, Reverend Charles Adams of Hartford Memorial Baptist Church in Detroit would conduct two services for his own congregation on Sunday mornings, drive with his wife to Toronto to hear Reverend GLADSTONE deliver his evening sermon and then get back in their car for the four-hour drive home.
Back in the early 1970s, a time of bristling racial tensions in the northern U.S., Reverend Adams was feeling burdened by the weight of his pastoral duties. He loved Toronto "as a city of high intellect and high culture" and he wanted "to be where I could be stimulated, but not called upon [as a pastor]. Chancing upon Yorkminster Park Baptist Church in mid-town Toronto, he found himself in a "gorgeous, gorgeous church and wonderful music and great, great preaching" by Reverend GLADSTONE.
Rev. Adams always sat in a back pew because he didn't want to be conspicuous, although as a black man in those white-bread days that was a slim hope. "I just wanted to receive the word and it was preached with such clarity and such classical greatness that I would go many times to fulfill my spiritual cup and recharge my batteries," he said this week. "Dr. GLADSTONE stimulated me intellectually and spiritually as a man who was morally committed to what he was doing and what he was about."
John Norris GLADSTONE was born in 1921 in London, the second of three children of a Baptist minister and his wife. He grew up in Suffolk in the east of England, playing goal in soccer and developing a life-long passion for the Arsenal football club of London. He enlisted in the Royal Air Force when the Second World War broke out, hoping to become a pilot. Because he was myopic in one eye, he failed the eyesight test and was assigned instead to the "codes-and-ciphers" detachment. That is probably how he survived the war, commented his son Peter GLADSTONE, a Toronto cardiologist, pointing out that his father had served in Iceland and was part of the Normandy landing in June, 1944, before being sent to Australia to help defend against a feared expansion of the war in Asia.
After peace came, Reverend GLADSTONE attended Manchester Baptist College. He graduated and was ordained in 1950, the same year he married Joyce AUSTIN. In the early years of their marriage and his ministry they served in churches in Caversham, Plymouth and Bromley and had their two children, Peter and Judith. Leonard GRIFFITH, long-time minister at St. Paul's Anglican Church and another legendary Toronto preacher, met Reverend GLADSTONE in 1960 when he moved to England to serve as minister in an Anglican church in the East End of London.
The two families both lived in Bromley, an awkward commute to Rev. GRIFFITH's church. One Sunday night, feeling exhausted from preaching both a morning and an evening sermon at City Temple, Rev. GRIFFITH arrived at Bromley Station, praying for a bus to take him the rest of the way home. Instead, as he told the celebrants at the memorial service for Reverend GRIFFITH on Sunday, he found "an angel on the platform, wearing a clerical collar," with a car waiting outside.
Later, Reverend GRIFFITH invited his friend to preach at a week-day noon service at City Temple. "Here was a pulpit virtuoso who approached the preaching task with the preparation and dedication of a violinist approaching a concerto," Reverend GRIFFITH said in his tribute. "His sermon gripped me because it had something to say. It was well structured, richly illustrated, appealing to my heart as well as my mind. He had obviously written a full manuscript, but there was no sign of it, because he looked directly into the faces of his congregation and preached with an eloquence that flowed from his finger tips."
The GLADSTONE family immigrated to Canada in response to a call from Yorkminster Park Baptist Church early in 1965. He served the congregation for 26 years, publishing four books of his collected sermons, contributing regularly to Moments of Meditation on CFRB radio and guest preaching in a wide variety of pulpits that included the Bill Graham Schools of Evangelism and the First Baptist Church in Washington, where he spent eight months as an interim minister after he officially retired from Yorkminster Park.
His evangelical prowess is celebrated in The John N. Gladstone Festival of Preaching at McMaster Divinity College in Hamilton, an annual professional-development event devoted to technique and sources.
Former cabinet minister Barbara MacDOUGALL, who grew up attending Sunday services in the church, described him as very caring and compassionate, but also realistic. "He understood the whole range of human emotion," she said. In commenting on his "seamless and very interesting sermons," she said Reverend GLADSTONE had an exceptional mind that he combined with a great faith and a formidable capacity to communicate. "He had a scholarly background so he was very knowledgeable and he also had a good sense of humour. I don't think any of his sermons passed without some humorous anecdote that would illustrate his point very well."
A tall, handsome man with a slight British accent, chalk-white hair and a twinkle in his eye, Reverend GLADSTONE's appearance and manner of dressing were as elegant as his speech. "We all have our vulnerabilities and maybe that was one of his, but it is not one that I regard as serious," Ms. MacDOUGALL said with a laugh. "If God gives you the gift of being good-looking, what are you waiting for?"
Anglican canon Reginald STACKHOUSE, referred to him as "one of the last pulpit giants" who not only attracted a larger attendance to his church, but held it for more than two decades. That's a considerable tribute, he said, to somebody who was preaching twice a Sunday in a time when the conventional wisdom decreed that sermons were out of date, preaching was an anachronism, and the church itself was in decline. "John GLADSTONE represented the reality, mainly that people still look for the spoken word and respond to it when it is done so well."
Rev. Adams concurred. "He was an amazing master of the English language with a very clear lyrical way of expressing himself," he said. As a preacher, Reverend GLADSTONE used examples and illustrations from literature, the Bible, current events and everyday life to make concrete connections with his congregation. "He was inspirational in his prayers," said Reverend STACKHOUSE. "He had a combination of elegant language and suppliant delivery. One did not get the impression that he was haranguing the Almighty; he was petitioning, but in a most elegant way."
Both his children considered him a "wonderful" father who loved them unconditionally. "We certainly weren't unconditionally good, but that didn't matter," said his daughter Judith MURRAY, a physiotherapist. "He had a terrific sense of humour," added his son Peter.
After 47 years of marriage, Reverend GLADSTONE's wife Joyce died in 1997, the same year he underwent a double bypass heart operation. Three years later, he suffered a couple of small strokes that affected his ability to organize his thoughts. When he found he could no longer preach extemporaneously to the high standards he had set himself, he stepped down from the pulpit and served the church in other ways.
His successor Reverend Peter HOLMES was "very gracious" about asking him to lead the congregation in prayer and to read the scripture during services, according to Ms. MURRAY. And her father was very gracious in return. "I never ask, but I always say yes," he told his daughter about Reverend HOLMES's invitations. He also devoted a lot of time to House of Compassion, an organization that serves the homeless, and to the Langham Trust, a foundation established for the education of clergy in the developing world.
His support of the Arsenal football club grew as time passed and in his retirement he devoted Saturday mornings to watching his favourite team on television. "He was an Arsenal fan to the end," said his son. "It was a big comfort to him" after his wife died, said his daughter, adding with a chuckle that her mother "wouldn't have allowed him to watch that much soccer."
Admitting that as a child it was sometimes hard to share her father with the rest of the congregation, Ms. MURRAY said that "as a kid you see that as a negative, but now I see it as a positive. My pastor said [after her father died] 'he pointed the way to heaven for a lot of people.' How could I not share somebody who was doing that?"
John Norris GLADSTONE was born in the Hammersmith area of London on October 6, 1921. He died of cancer after a long illness in Toronto on January 4. He was 83. He is survived by his son Peter and daughter Judith.

Gerald GLADSTONE, Artist: 1929-2005
Determined and prolific sculptor who won several major commissions at Expo 67 shot as brightly as a comet through the Canadian art scene and then gradually burned out, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Wednesday, March 9, 2005 - Page S9
His name is only vaguely familiar now, but Gerald GLADSTONE, a self-taught artist and musician, was a huge force in Canadian art in the 1950s and 1960s. Short, stocky with curly hair and a fiery personality, he had a spiritual conception of the cosmos and our place within it, a vision which he interpreted in monumental yet dynamic welded steel sculptures.
Born in Toronto in 1929, the year of the stock-market crash that precipitated the Depression, he was the sixth of nine children of Ralph and Dora GLADSTONE. A dynamic, feisty boy, he disliked the discipline and structure of school. His younger brother Joseph says his teachers let him do all the class art projects and simply passed him in other subjects year after year, until he got fed up and quit at the end of Grade 8 and went to work.
In those days, he was as much a musician as he was an artist. He taught himself to play the clarinet and formed a jazz band. He was also a sharp dancer and loved to go jitterbugging with his sister Rose. "He was very pugnacious, very proud of being Jewish and very up front about it and it often caused him difficulties in his social life," remembered his brother David.
He married artist Sheila McCUSKER when he was in his very early 20s. Allycia, the eldest of the couple's six children was born in September, 1953. Mr. GLADSTONE built an easel on a hinge on the wall over her crib so that he could paint and draw after he had come home from work and she was sleeping. By his own count, he had close to 30 jobs in 14 years, eventually working at Rapid Grip as a commercial artist and attaining the position of art director with McLaren Advertising before he quit to devote himself to art.
Mr. GLADSTONE built a shack out the back of their house in the Beach area of Toronto, "breaking every fire law under the sun," according to his brother Joseph and making sculptures that one observer described as "a blowtorch blending of gramophone speakers, wheel rims and wire waste baskets." He would work furiously and when he heard an inspector was coming, he would clean up like mad, his brother said.
He was one of the group of artists exhibited by Av ISAACS in the 1950s that included Michael Snow, Gordon Rayner, Graham Coughtry and Tony Urquhart. Mr. Rayner remembers "Gerry playing a mean Dixieland clarinet" at parties. His work did two things at once, said Mr. Urquhart. "It was expressionistic and at the same time it was coming to grips with technology. Some of the ones I particularly liked, partly because I hadn't a clue how he would do them, were these big sculptures submerged in big blocks of lucite."
"To pick up a welding torch and use it in the service of sculpture was an avant-garde thing to do" in those early struggling days when "people were still bashing at stone," observed critic Gary Michael Dault. Mr. GLADSTONE's sculptures, with their welded steel rods and whirling discs, looked adventurously modernist in the all-too-provincial Toronto of the 1950s.
Curator Dennis Reid says Mr. GLADSTONE's cosmic vision was a great strength. The actual sculptures -- the cones and rods -- read on both a galactic level and on a microscopic one, too, he says. "That is where their energy lies and I think it hit a chord in the late '50s and early '60s. It took right off."
In 1959, he received his first Canada Council grant and the family, which now numbered several children, packed up and went to London, where he studied at the Royal College of Art. There, he met the British sculptor Henry Moore and visited him at his studio. Influenced by Mr. Moore, he began experimenting with figurative work.
Shortly after returning from England, Mr. GLADSTONE became involved in Toronto '61, a collective show organized by his younger brothers Joseph and David. Joseph, who is now a retired elementary school principal, was heading out to Vancouver to teach. He and his brothers went around to all of their brother's artist Friends and collected three or four pieces of art from each of them on consignment. They boxed the works, shipped them to Vancouver, held a show and then shipped the work of a number of Vancouver artists back to Toronto.
After studying in New York on another Canada Council grant and achieving modest success through a couple of galleries, Mr. GLADSTONE moved back to Canada. He was part of the opening exhibition for The Isaacs Gallery when it moved to its new premises on Yonge Street in 1961, but he and the gallery soon parted company. "He was a ballsy guy -- feisty is the word," says dealer Av ISAACS, who represented Mr. GLADSTONE for about a decade.
Although he thinks Mr. GLADSTONE did some interesting work, he says he "was a very pushy guy and I just didn't need it."
He was the only artist to net three commissions for Expo 67 in Montreal. He created Uki, the 12-metre, fire-spewing mechanical dragon that haunted a lagoon for the Canadian government, a space column for the Engineer's Plaza and a towering fountain for the amusement park at La Ronde. His commissions amounted to about $250,000, but expenses gobbled up most of it, leaving him with about $35,000, some of which he plowed back into his work -- although he did allow himself the purchase of a black Steinway grand piano.
He was so hot in 1967 that he told the late journalist Blaik Kirby in The Globe that the price of his sculptures had doubled in the previous two years. "People say I'm so lucky, but they forget that for 20 years I invested more money than I made in my work," the artist said. "I believed I was an artist when no one else did, except a few close Friends."
Only three years later, he was penniless again, complaining that Canada didn't understand him and that the Canada Council was shunning him. Still, he had an exhibition of his plastic cubes (many of them borrowed from private collections), and his Downtown Nudes, a poetic calligraphy of weaving lines on raw canvas, as the opening exhibition at the St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts in downtown Toronto.
From his home in Victoria, Mavor Moore, then general director of the centre, remembers choosing Mr. GLADSTONE because "he had worldwide dreams and the technical skills to realize them, and at the time my colleagues and I thought his works would give the launch an exciting cachet. But he managed to alienate many of his more nationalistic fellow Canadian artists, and the sole 1970 anecdote I recall is Harold Town's immortal summation of the exhibit: 'Gerry GLADSTONE is the only sculptor in the world who can weld shit.' "
And then, this artist who had shot as brightly as a comet through the Canadian art scene for a decade, burned out. He still had commissions, but he was no longer a force. Among them were the Three Graces, a fountain and bronze sculptures for the Ontario government buildings at Bay and Wellesley streets in Toronto, Female Landscape, a fountain and bronze sculpture for Place Ville Marie in Montreal, a fountain and precast concrete sculpture for a Martin Luther King memorial in California, and a fountain and sculpture in Canberra for the government of Australia. He made a six-metre sculpture called Universal Man to stand in front of the C.N. Tower, but it was damaged when the Sky Dome was built and found a new home in a parking lot at Yorkdale Mall in the north end of the city.
He had to hustle because he had only his art to support his wife and six children. But there were other factors. He moved from gallery to gallery, having arguments with artists and dealers and even the Canada Council. He also changed styles, moving away from his early constructivist welded sculptures to embrace painting and figurative work. In the process, he seemed to lose his vocabulary and his energy. Artist Gordon Rayner admired the early steel sculptures, but he thought his paintings were really like graphic sketches for sculptures and he didn't much fancy his figurative sculpture.
Dennis REID, chief curator at the Art Gallery of Ontario, thinks he didn't survive the change in art that happened in the 1970s. "We all talk about the death of painting, but it was also the death of any kind of figuration in sculpture, by and large for that period of time, and the rise of conceptual and performance art.
By the late 1970s, he had left his wife and begun a new relationship. With his new partner, Lorraine, he moved to Vancouver hoping to win commissions at Expo 86, and eventually returned to Ontario where they settled in Beaverton in the early 1990s. He continued to make art, although now he was working mainly with smaller pieces. The Art Gallery of Ontario gave him a small retrospective in late 2003, linking his current work with his early monumental sculptures and his plastic cubes. By then, he had been diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia. Earlier this winter, his spleen became dangerously enlarged and he went into hospital for surgery. He died on Monday morning.
Gerald GLADSTONE was born on January 7, 1929. He died of leukemia on March 7. He was 76. He is survived by his second wife, Lorraine, six children from his first wife, and several brothers and a sister.

Naomi is survived by her husband, Daniel STEINER, her four year old son Benjamin and one year old daughter, Bella, her parents Arlene GLADSTONE and Hamish CAMERON and Mitchell and Lynne GROPPER, her grandmother, Zoe GROPPER, brother Daniel GROPPER (Tamara) Aaron GROPPER, Ross CAMERON, Hamish CAMERON (Patricia), Grant CAMERON and Dory CAMERON (Gordon) and Daniel's parents, Norma and George STEINER, as well as many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
The family thanks Doctors Brian THIESSEN, Michael McKENZIE, Warren MASON, Beverly SPRING, Keith HATLELID and Lori MacFARLANE, as well as the caring nurses and staff of the British Columbia Cancer Agency and the Palliative Care Ward at Vancouver General Hospital for their support and guidance.
Naomi lived a full, but short life. She studied at Vancouver Talmud Torah and Magee High School. At 16 she traveled to France to attend school there. Her university education was at McGill (B.A., 1990), Hebrew University of Jerusalem (1989) and University of Toronto (M.B.A., 1998) where she was her class president. From 1994 to 1996 she worked, first as a volunteer, and then as a manager, at The United Way of Greater Vancouver. From 1988 to 2001 she worked as a management consultant with AT Kearney, dividing her time between her home with Daniel in Toronto and cities across North America, including New York where she and Daniel lived from 2000 to 2002. In 2002 Naomi and Daniel returned to Vancouver, where Naomi worked with Arts Umbrella where she was instrumental in the establishment of the endowment fund in honor of Carol Henriquez.
Naomi was also active in the community, as a board member of the Jewish Family Service Agency of Vancouver and co-chair of its 'Innovators Lunch' held in April 2004, and co-chair of the Ben Gurion Society and of the Family Day of the Jewish Federation of Greater Vancouver.
Family and Friends were central to Naomi's life. She had the ability to touch each of them all of the time. Her children bear the indelible stamp of her love. She will be missed and remembered by many.
Funeral services will be held at Temple Sholom in Vancouver at 7190 Oak Street on Sunday, June 26, 2005 at 10: 00 a.m. with the burial to follow at Temple Sholom's Cemetery in White Rock. (Shiva arrangements will be announced at the funeral.)
In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to the Naomi Fund at the Jewish Family Service Agency. The Naomi Fund will support families and individuals facing medical crisis in our community who are not fortunate enough to have a group of family and Friends such as those who were available to provide strength to Naomi. Please contact J.S.F.A. in Vancouver at 604-257 5151 or by mail to 305-1985 West Broadway Vancouver, British Columbia V6J 4Y3 for further information.

GLADSTONE, John Norris
On Tuesday, January 4, 2005, in his 84th year, John died peacefully, at home, surrounded by his family, after a long illness borne with grace and courage. It was with love and gratitude that we passed him into the arms of his Lord, whom he had served faithfully for a lifetime. Beloved husband of Joyce for 47 years until her passing in 1997. Dearly loved father of Peter and Judith, and father-in-law of Cindy and Bruce. Precious "Papa" to Gregory, Jillian, Jonathan, Rachel, and Miriam. The son of a Baptist minister, John served in the Royal Air Force from 1939-1945 and then graduated from Manchester College. Following pastorates in Reading, Plymouth, and Bromley, he was called to Toronto in 1965, but he retained many close ties with England, where his sister Sylvia resides. He enjoyed a vibrant and distinguished preaching ministry at Yorkminster Park Baptist Church from 1965-1991. He was the author of four books and was honoured with a Doctor of Divinity from McMaster University in 1970. He completed sabbatical studies in Oxford in 1975 and in May, 2000 he was appointed Chancellor of Tyndale University College and Seminary in Toronto.

Born and raised in Toronto, Gerald, for over 50 years, painted and welded a vast variety of paintings and sculptures that were shown in galleries around the world. He is represented in many major private and public collections. He created many public works of art for cities across Canada and internationally. One of his largest sculptures, "Universal Man", originally created for and displayed at the C.N. Tower, is currently installed at the Yorkdale Shopping Centre in Toronto. A major public fountain, "The Three Graces", commissioned by the Ontario government, stands in front of the Mowat Block at Bay and Wellesley streets in Toronto. His "Reclining Female", commissioned by the Royal Bank of Canada, adorns the upper terrace of Place Ville Marie in Montreal. Gerald will be greatly missed by his family and Friends. His art, humour, sound advice, and his discussions related to art and music are a legacy that continues to enrich us all. The family would like to thank sincerely the staff of St. Michael's and Princess Margaret Hospitals for all the wonderful care and attention they gave Gerald. It is the family's wish that any donations in appreciation of Gerry's life and work be made to either of those institutions. A memorial reception will be held at a later time and place to be announced.

STOLL, Grace Marion (née GLADWIN)
(April 4, 1917-December 12, 2005)
Grace STOLL passed away peacefully at the Trillium Health Centre, Mississauga, in the early hours of December 12. She had been courageously facing augmenting health problems for the last year and her strong heart could no longer sustain her. She leaves her daughter, Mary Ellen (Steve McGOVERN) of Timmins, Ontario and Jane in Mississauga. She was the beloved wife of the late Arthur William STOLL for 51 years, grandmother to Peter and Carolyn McGOVERN and sister to John GLADWIN of Kanata, Ontario. She was born and grew up in Long Branch. After high school, she pursued an office career and married Art in 1941, who served with the 48th Highlanders in North Africa and Italy. Their post war life meant building their own home in Lorne Park and raising a family. Grace lived in the home they built until September 2004 before moving to the Regency Retirement Home on Mississauga Road. Grace was a charter member of St. Stephen's-on-the-Hill in Mississauga and a stalwart member of the choir and countless other church activities. Her love of the outdoors and her paintings are among her enduring legacies to her family and Friends. Although the last few years were difficult because of Arthritis and other physical challenges, she was alert to the end, reading the paper daily and keeping in touch with her many Friends. A Memorial Service to celebrate her long life will be held at St. Stephen's-on-the-Hill United Church, 998 Indian Rd. in Mississauga on Friday, December 16, 2005 at 1: 30 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations to the Niagara Escarpment Legacy Campaign (www.brucetrail.org) or St. Stephen's-on-the-Hill Memorial Fund.
