REICHERT, Norma (GRIEVE)
Norma,
5 years it's been, since we've seen your face,
5 years it's been, so out of place.
Time has past, our thoughts have not.
Your words, your presence we've never forgot.
The daughters you raised, the lives you made,
The lives you changed, the moments you made.
A grand_son you have, a guardian angel you are,
Watching over young Sam, his grandma afar.
Not a day goes by, where you're not thought of.
We miss you Norma, forever to you our love.
Always in our hearts!
Love Ken, Holli, Will, Heidi, Chris and Sammy.

John BAND, Executive And Art Collector (1915-2005)
Navy officer who hunted U-boats during the Second World War returned home to become an insurance broker and a collector of Canadian art
By Sandra MARTIN, Saturday, September 24, 2005, Page S9
Although he was a distinguished veteran and a former insurance executive, John BAND found his true calling in companionship and art. He was passionate about collecting, gardening, fitness, the navy, red wine and crossword puzzles. A good listener, he was the master of drawing people out.
Born into a family of prominent Canadian art collectors, he inherited his parents' eye and their zeal for collecting. "I wish I knew the first time I shook his hand," said art collector Ken THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, chairman of The Globe and Mail. "I think it was in the mid-50s and it must have been about art."
For half a century, the two men discussed upcoming auction sales, although their Friendship meant they never bid against each other. "I respected his judgment on paintings," Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said. Whenever Mr. BAND was "adamant" about a picture, such as The Steamship Quebec, painted by Cornelius Krieghoff in 1853, "I jolly well bought it. There wasn't going to be any doubt about that," Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON admitted.
"He was always around the corner from my house and up here," tapping his forehead with his finger, "he was right beside me all the time," Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said. "I never got along with anybody better."
Mr. BAND's love of art was ingrained growing up in a home where Arthur LISMER and Fred VARLEY were frequent guests and painting was a major dinner table topic. "John had a very keen eye for choice works and he sometimes went about acquiring them as though he was a detective," said Lisa Balfour BOWEN, a family friend and art critic. "To my knowledge, he was filling gaps in his collection virtually until the time of his death."
There was nothing passive about Mr. BAND. "He spoke his mind, but it was something that you welcomed. There were no shades. He was always direct and clear," said Dennis REID, chief curator of the Art Gallery of Ontario. "I have to say I loved him."
John Trumbull BAND was the eldest child and only son of insurance broker and art collector Charles Shaw BAND and his wife, Helen WARREN. His parents moved to New York in 1914 when Mr. BAND was transferred to the American office of James Carruthers and Co. Mr. BAND was born there a year later.
While they lived in the United States, the BANDs bought canvases painted by the Hudson River Valley artists. They sold that collection when they returned to Toronto in 1923 with John and his younger sisters, Priscilla, Barbara and Helen.
"They wanted to collect what was important in the life of Canada their country and the countryside they knew," said Mr. BAND's stepdaughter, management consultant and corporate director Jalynn BENNETT. The BANDs bought an island in Georgian Bay and became good Friends with several members of the Group of Seven.
"Their home was a testament to the art of the Twenties and Thirties in Canada," said Mr. REID. " The dining room was stupendous because it was all Lawren HARRIS's Arctic sketches. There must have been 10 of them."
Two years after the BANDs moved back to Toronto, they sent John to Trinity College School in Port Hope. He was 10. His daughter Sarah, an entrepreneur and retailer, has his first school report framed in her bathroom. "He is rather backward for his age, but he has ability and is a neat and careful worker," his teacher wrote.
In 1929, the year of the stock-market crash, the school's main building burned down. Hard economic times and the school's rebuilding difficulties persuaded his parents to withdraw him in 1931, the year he would have graduated, and send him to Jarvis Collegiate Institute in Toronto instead.
Nevertheless, Mr. BAND was a committed Trinity College School old boy. With his family's help, he gave himself an 80th birthday gift in 1995 by endowing an annual history prize.
Mr. BAND went to work in 1937 for Irish and Molson, a firm of insurance brokers that became Marsh and McLennan and later Marsh Canada. After war broke out, he enlisted in the Navy and was commissioned a Sub-Lieutenant in the Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve in 1941. About the same time, he met Mona MORROW (later CAMPBELL,) daughter of financier and company director Frederick MORROW. They married in 1942.
During the war, Mr. BAND served on H.M.C.S. Swansea, a river-class frigate in 1943 as first lieutenant. The ship, which was known as a happy and successful one, helped to sink three German U-boats in the North Atlantic in March and April of 1944 and assisted in essential enemy sweeps before the invasion of Normandy in June of 1944. He transferred to H.M.C.S. Stone Town, another frigate, with the rank of Lieutenant Commander, that November and served as its commanding officer until August of 1945.
For decades afterward, Mr. BAND caught up with his wartime cronies at an annual navy lunch he organized, inviting specialist speakers on military subjects. One of the regulars was Tony GRIFFIN, another distinguished naval veteran. "There were very few officers I could put in the same class as John BAND," he said this week. "He knew how to handle ships and men and he had a keen appreciation of the Navy."
Michael WHITBY, senior naval historian at the Department of National Defence, agrees with that assessment. "He was one of the typical Canadians who volunteered to go fight the war and who did an outstanding job." Mr. BAND's strength was to lead by gentle persuasion and quiet example. On Swansea, for example, he insisted that classical music was played on Sundays.
When peace came, he went back to Toronto and to Marsh and McLennan, working mainly on Toronto establishment accounts until he retired in 1980 as a senior executive. He needlessly regretted that the war disrupted his plans to go to university, according to Paul O'DONOGHUE, a business colleague from Marsh and McLennan who became a lifelong friend. "He was the best-informed man I ever met."
Mr. BAND and his wife Mona had three children, John, Sarah and Victoria (Vickie), but the marriage fell apart in the mid-1950s. After an acrimonious divorce and custody settlement, Mr. BAND married Elizabeth Lumbers ROGERS, a widow with two children (Jalynn BENNETT and Jennifer ROGERS,) in 1959.
His son lived with them and his daughters stayed with their mother. "We weren't allowed to see him for a long time," said his daughter Sarah, who became extremely close to her father in the past few decades. "He was my best friend," she said this week. "We talked four times a day."
As a stepfather, Mr. BAND was "warm and caring and curious about our lives without being intrusive," says Ms. BENNETT, who was 15 when her mother remarried.
He was very outgoing and had a keen sense of whimsy. He once jokingly confided plans for his funeral: a procession down Bay Street at noon with a Brinks truck following the hearse with a big sign on top saying: "Who says you can't take it with you?"
Some years after his second wife Betty died in 1992, Mr. BAND formed a new attachment with Patty FISCHER, the former wife of industrialist Michael DEGROOTE, owner of Laidlaw Transport and the Hamilton Tiger Cats.
Mr. BAND turned 90 in late August. He celebrated his birthday two weeks ago at a party he organized himself at the Toronto Hunt Club, where he'd belonged ever since his mother had bought him a membership for his 20th birthday.
His friend Ken THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON tried to give him a small J.E.H. MacDonald painting of the family island in Georgian Bay as a birthday gift. Knowing the value of the painting, Mr. BAND refused to accept it, although he delighted in pointing out familiar landmarks. Finally, he agreed to "borrow" the painting after attaching a note to the back saying it belonged to Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON. He only had a few days to enjoy it. The painting has now come back to Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, layered with "priceless" sentimental value. He plans to hang it near his desk in his office until he gives it eventually to the Art Gallery of Ontario. "But that paper is going to stay with that picture," he insisted. "That's a condition."
Last Tuesday, Sarah BAND took her father to a medical appointment where he learned that his cancer was terminal. He went home, made a final "to do" list to settle his affairs and then "crumpled."
John Trumbull BAND was born in New York on August 25, 1915. He died on Sunday of metastasized sarcoma. He is survived by one sister, three children, two stepchildren, 10 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.
A private family burial took place on Thursday. A memorial service is planned for September 30 at noon at St. Paul's Anglican Church in Toronto.

BROADLEY, Vera (née CASTLE)
(January 20, 1927-November 7, 2005)
Peacefully at the Trillium Health Centre, Mississauga.
Loving wife of the late Harold BROADLEY. Dear mother to Patricia BARBER of Barrie, David (wife Andrea GRIFFIN) of Mississauga and Ian (wife Diane CHIASSON) of Montreal.

She is predeceased by her brothers Walter, Frank, Albert, Edward and Victor and her sisters Jennie, Doris, Katie, Ada and Ivy.
Vera and Harold enjoyed forty wonderful years together, starting out in Rosemount, Quebec and later moving to Roxboro, a suburb of Montreal. Vera loved dogs, and was a Registered Breeder of Championship Shelties. When at home, Vera was constantly shadowed by at least one of her Shelties, often by two or three, and always by her beloved Papillion, M'Lord.
In 1985, Vera and Harold moved from Roxboro to Belleville, Ontario where they joined Vera's sister Ivy and Harold's brother Bob, in an active retirement. In Belleville they were both involved in the senior's community, in particular with the Kiwanis Club.
After Harold's passing in 1995 Vera moved to Mississauga to be closer to her first grandchild, Thomas. Little did she know that Kevin and Grace would soon follow!
In recent years, Vera's health failed her but she still managed to smile and joke with the many health care professionals who came to know her. Vera's family would like to thank all who have supported her over the last few years. In particular, we thank the staff of the Regency Retirement Residence as well as the staff of Credit Valley Hospital and Trillium Health Centre.

GRIFFIN, Richard " Dick" Haworth Kent
Dick died suddenly on April 15, 2005 at his home, in his 80th year. Dick was born in Toronto and like many of his generation, grew up fast to join The Royal Canadian Navy, serving in the North Atlantic during World War 2. His love of art and adventure lead him to New York City to study at the Arts Students League, in the late 40's, where he made lifelong Friends. Dick had a successful career in commercial art at Trans Ad. The Canadian outdoors and painting were his passion and he was happiest on his many sketching and canoe trips in Haliburton, Algonquin and eventually at his retirement home on the falls at Gull River, Norland. His beloved cedar strip canoe still travels through Algonquin with his family. A gentle man who loved his family and a good party, he was admired by all for his care and dedication to his wife, Bette, through her extended illness. Dick will be especially missed by daughters Sandra (and Herb), Barbara (and Roy), Beverly (and Doug), his wife Bette, the Portz family, brothers Gordon and Ronald, and their families. Friends are invited to a Memorial Service to celebrate Dick's life at the Giffen-Mack 'Scarborough' Funeral Home And Cremation Centre, 4115 Lawrence Ave. East, West Hill (416) 281-6800 on Thursday, April 21, 2005 at 2: 30 p.m. in the Chapel.

BROADLEY, Vera (née CASTLE) (January 20, 1927-November 7, 2005)
Peacefully at the Trillium Health Centre, Mississauga. Loving wife of the late Harold BROADLEY. Dear mother to Patricia BARBER of Barrie, David (wife Andrea GRIFFIN) of Mississauga and Ian (wife Diane CHIASSON) of Montreal. Wonderful Grammie to Thomas, Kevin and Grace. Vera was the youngest of 11 children born to Jennie Ellen IRVING and Walter Charles CASTLE of Montreal. She is predeceased by her brothers Walter, Frank, Albert, Edward and Victor and her sisters Jennie, Doris, Katie, Ada and Ivy. Vera and Harold enjoyed forty wonderful years together, starting out in Rosemount, Quebec and later moving to Roxboro, a suburb of Montreal. Vera loved dogs, and was a registered breeder of championship Shelties. When at home, Vera was constantly shadowed by at least one of her Shelties, often by two or three, and always by her beloved Papillion, M'Lord. In 1985, Vera and Harold moved from Roxboro to Belleville, Ontario, where they joined Vera's sister Ivy and Harold's brother Bob, in an active retirement. In Belleville they were both involved in the Seniors' Community, in particular with the Kiwanis Club. After Harold's passing in 1995 Vera moved to Mississauga to be closer to her first grandchild, Thomas. Little did she know that Kevin and Grace would soon follow! In recent years, Vera's health failed her but she still managed to smile and joke with the many health care professionals who came to know her. Vera's family would like to thank all who have supported her over the last few years. In particular, we thank the staff of the Regency Retirement Residence as well as the staff of Credit Valley Hospital and Trillium Health Centre. Mrs. BROADLEY is resting at the Funeral Home of Skinner and Middlebrook Ltd., 128 Lakeshore Rd. E. (1 block west of Hurontario St.), Mississauga (parking off Ann St.) on Thursday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral Service in the Chapel on Friday, November 11, 2005 at 1: 00 p.m. Cremation. In lieu of flowers, Vera's family would ask for donations to the Trillium Health Centre Foundation.
