I Remember -- Brereton GREENHOUS
By John R. GRODZINSKI, Wednesday, May 18, 2005, Page S7
Major John R. GRODZINSKI of the Royal Military College in Kingston, Ontario, writes about Brereton GREENHOUS, whose obituary appeared on May 14.
I first met him in 1990. "Ben" was in the staff lounge, holding what appeared to be court. His presence dominated the room, yet the warmth of his character was apparent in his jovial smile and wit. Noticing me as a stranger to the place, he invited me over and asked what I was working on. Having enjoyed several of his books, such interest by an accomplished historian was overwhelming. Without hesitation, he immediately offered me access to his records.
Whenever we met again, he always showed that same interest, offering sage advice and lots of encouragement. To Ben, historians had to work hard, unearthing facts and questioning every detail. He also made history fun, perhaps best summed up in his assessment on whether the origins of an aspect of a particular regiment's heritage was true or not. Ben concluded the story to be based more in folklore than fact, writing that it was likely "developed imperceptibly over a series of late night sessions in the mess conceived over a whisky and soda, born of a good claret, and weaned on port, so to speak."

On March 29, 2005 after a separation of 17 years, Mom quietly slipped away to rejoin George Sr., her husband of 55 years. She was 94 years old. We remember her great apple pies, Christmas mornings that were a time of magic for her kids, and her splendid needlework, dolls clothing and jewellery. But most of all we remember how hard she worked for her family and how she always put them first. Thanks Mom, we love you and will miss you. Goodbye Mom, goodbye Dad. Goodbye Gramma and Poppa. Goodbye "Amazing Grace". She lives on in the memories of her children, Sandra PEACOCK (Frederick) and George HALL (Jo-Anne,) her grandchildren Kim BEAVAN (Shaun HARDYCHUCK), Jonathon BEAVAN (Donna GROENING), Kathleen HALL (Bob BOAZ) and Stewart HALL (Sheila JAKOWEC,) her great-grandchildren Riechelle and Trevor HARDYCHUCK, Breanna, Brandon and Larissa BEAVAN, Spencer and Aidan BOAZ. We are very grateful to the staff of Extendicare Guildwood who looked after her so well. Friends are welcome to stop by the Scarborough Funeral Centre at 2966 Eglinton Ave. E. (between McCowan and Bellamy) on Thursday, April 28 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday, April 29 from 1 p.m. until the time of the memorial service to follow at 2 p.m. Flowers are gratefully declined.

GRONBERG o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2005-11-12 published
GREENBERG, Leonard Herman B.Sc., M.Sc., PhD, and professor emeritus
The physics community lost a respected long time member and teacher on November 10, 2005. Len GREENBERG taught in the physics department at the University of Regina for 38 years, including 5 years as department head, retiring in 1990. Co-workers recall him as an extremely good physicist, instrumental in bringing the small department recognition as one of the best in Canada in the field of sub-atomic physics. Len's forte was writing, however, and his two books, "Discovery in Physics for Scientists and Engineers" and "Physics for Biology and Pre-med Students" have been called literature as well as science, and were translated into several languages. In his early career, Len was deeply involved in the development of the cobalt bomb for radiation in cancer therapy at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, and he worked for many years at the Allan Blair Memorial Clinic in Regina. Although not an astronomer, Len developed and taught the first astronomy classes at the University of Regina.
Len was born on October 5, 1925 in Calgary, Alberta, one of four children of Anna and Oscar, who had emigrated from Sweden. Len obtained his B.Sc. and M.Sc. from the University of Alberta and PhD from the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon in the mid-1950s. He moved to Regina in 1952, and lived there until 1972, when he moved to the village of Silton. Summers were spent on Kenderdine Island in Lac La Ronge, where Len found a retreat and idyllic environment for his writing.
Len was predeceased by his parents, his sister Evelyn and his brother George. Len will be sadly missed by Ann, his wife of 32 years. Len will also be missed by his sister Bernice CRAIG (Cameron) of Cranbrook, British Columbia and his first wife Joyce HENDERSON of Red Deer, Alberta. Len was an inspiration to his children Lynnea WILLIAMS (Bruce) of Regina, Pauline WATSON (Bob) of Oakville, Ontario, Sherrill BARKER (John) of Red Deer, Alberta, David GRONBERG of Regina, Ian GREENBERG (Sue) of Vancouver, Dan McKAY of Edmonton, Stephen McKERRACHER (Donna) of Drake, Saskatchewan. Len also leaves thirteen grandchildren: Notanee and Roshi (Regina), Kevin and Andrea (Oakville), Natasha and Nathan (Red Deer), Sarah (Scarborough), Chelsea, Eliza and Matthew (Victoria), Ayla, Sterling and Milan, and three great grandchildren. Len is already deeply missed by his dogs Suzy and Gus.
The funeral will be held at Speers Funeral Chapel, Regina, at 1: 30 on Tuesday November 15. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a bursary to be set up in his name, directed to the University of Regina, External Relations, 210 North Residence, S4S 0A2, Toll free 1-866-667-7500 in Canada or the United States.

PRINCE, Walter Harry, Q.C.L.L.D.
In his 79th Year. Passed away peacefully at home on November 27, 2005 showing amazing strength and dignity during his challenge with cancer.
Walter is survived by his loving wife and best friend of 49 yrs. Janet, and their children Judith and Dr. Ross WALKER of Kingston and Stewart and Mary (GRONDIN) PRINCE of Windsor. Dear "Grandad" to Andrew, Emily and Fraser Walker and Matthew and Jack PRINCE. Brother of Dr. Jack PRINCE and wife Elaine of Windsor, and brother-in-law of Marjory and John ("Jack") CRANFORD of Toronto.
Born in Windsor, Ontario, Walter had a distinguished and successful 50 year career in law. After attending Kennedy Collegiate he graduated from the University of Western Ontario in 1950, and was called to the bar in 1955 as a graduate of Osgoode Hall Law School. He began his career in Windsor as an associate with the firm Fraser and McPherson. In 1965, a new partnership, McPherson, Prince and Geddes was formed. Walter was appointed Queens Council in 1969. He was the senior partner with McPherson, Prince and Geddes when the firm merged with Mousseau Deluca in 2001. That year he received the designation of "Certified Specialist in Estate and Trust Laws" by the Law Society of Upper Canada. Most recently (April 2005) he received a Doctor of Laws honorary degree from Assumption University in Windsor.
Walter has been Chairman of the Windsor Planning Board, Chairman of the Windsor- Essex County Development Commision, Chairman of the Windsor Estate Planning Commision, Chairman of the Guaranty Trust/Central Trust Advisory Board and Chairman of the Leamington Police Commision. He was also a member and past President of the Essex County Law Association, member of the Canadian Bar Association and member of the Canadian Tax Foundation. As President of the Windsor Young Men's Christian Association and Vice-President of the National Council of Young Men's Christian Association Canada, he received the Canadian Young Men's Christian Association "Fellowship of Honour Citation" as presented in Ottawa by the then Canadian Governor General in 1984. He was also a member of the Essex-Scottish Veterans Association and member/Past-President of the Windsor Club.
As devoted and dedicated Walter was to his career, he was equally, if not more devoted and loving to his family. He valued Friendships and respected colleagues. Perhaps his greatest joy was to spend time with his family and Friends at "the cottage" on Lake Huron in north Oliphant, Ontario. The multi-purpose "boathouse" was home to his summer office and woodworking shop he so treasured.
The Memorial Service will be held at Riverside United Church, 881 Glidden Avenue, Windsor, Ontario on Friday, December 2, 2005 at 11am. Reception and Visitation following. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Hospice of Windsor.
