PETERSEN, Niels Forrester (1912-2005)
On November 25th, at his home in Toronto, Niels taught us how to die with as much panache as he had taught us how to live. He passed away peacefully at 10.30 p.m., surrounded by family and Friends, amid, laughter and tears, stories and songs. Niels was predeceased by his beloved wife Betty, his parents Niels and Amelia, and his sisters Irene and Thora. He will be deeply missed by his son Charles, daughter-in-law Riki TUROFSKY, daughter Jane and much loved grandchildren Corbett, Niels and James (Lara) PETERSEN, and Miranda, Jennifer and Katie BURFIELD. He will be greatly missed by his niece Victoria (Ken SPARKS,) and by many Friends including Else KILDEGAARD, and Niels Kildegaard PEDERSEN of Denmark, Doris LAFRENIER, Gordon FOOTE, David and Cathy WILKES, Saturday morning coffee klatch Friends Marie and Jim McGORMAN, Tessa BUCHAN, Julie and Mike PARKER and their wonderful daughter Katelyn, by Garry HANRAHAN, Oksana CHUYKO and also by long-time business associates and Friends Ted TREMAIN and Jim McMYN, and by Brenda WHITE/WHYTE who cared for him and made him laugh to his last hours. Niels was born July 3, 1912 in Ansdell, Lancashire. He was educated in Lytham Saint Annes and in Copenhagen, Denmark, before emigrating to Canada in 1929. Niels began a more than 70-year association with the Young Men's Christian Association of Canada when he joined West End Young Men's Christian Association, becoming Chairman of the National Board of Canada, and Chair of the International Finance Committee in Geneva, Switzerland. He was awarded the Fellowship of Honour by the Young Men's Christian Association in 1982. Niels met his beloved wife, Betty BAUCKHAM, at Young Men's Christian Association Geneva Park in 1938, and managed to engage her interest by disabling her boyfriend with a rigourous course of gymnastics. They were married in Toronto in 1942, shortly before Niels joined the Queens Own Rifles. Flat feet kept Niels from serving overseas. During his service career he trained new recruits in physical fitness, including one grateful Officer who told him 50 years later that his training kept him alive on the beaches of Normandy. While in the army, Niels completed a three-year business correspondence course from Queens University in one year, leading to a 60-year career in business. Niels was President and Chairman of the Board of Sterling Trust, and Chairman of Wellington Trust. He guided Investors Finance Corporation Limited and Commercial Financial for many decades. Niels' passion for boating, begun at 50 when his son, Charles, taught him how to sail, led to hours of peace and challenge in his much loved Nonsuch sailboats both in Florida and Ontario. He enjoyed photography, travel, classical music, and walking. A more recent hobby was following sailing races and reading newspapers from around the world on his computer. He particularly enjoyed listening to Rev. Dr. Andrew STIRLING, broadcast on the internet from Timothy Eaton Church, on the Sundays he was not able to get to service. Saturday morning coffee with Friends at the St. Lawrence Market demonstrated his lifelong gift, an ability to talk with anyone, about anything, at anytime, with laughter and zest. The family wishes to thank Dr. Vincent CHIEN and the A Team at St. Michael's Hospital, for their remarkable care during his final month, and Dr. David GREENBERG for his special kindness. Friends may call at the Turner and Porter Yorke Chapel, 2357 Bloor St. West, at Windermere, East of the Jane Subway, on Tuesday, November 29, from 2-4 pm and 7-9 p.m. A service in celebration of his life will take place at Timothy Eaton Church on Wednesday, November 30 at 3.00 p.m. Donations may be made in his memory to a favorite charity. It is not often that a man can live for most of a century, can experience life before telephones, cars or airplanes were common, and can enjoy the fun of WiFi on an IMac, lucid to the end. He will be lovingly remembered and sorely missed.

FRANKLIN, Cecil Hammond " Cec"
Peacefully, at Central Park Lodge, Toronto, on Thursday, January 27, 2005, in his 90th year. Loving and cherished husband of Ingrid. Predeceased by his wife Phyllis LORRAINE (Peg,) 1983, and daughter Sandra, 1987. Dear father of Rob and his wife Pinky. Loving grandfather of Signy, Ali and Tad. Sadly missed by cousin Jean WATSON. Fond uncle of Richard and Carol FRANKLIN, Keith and Carole McEWING, the Culley Clan, and many grandnieces and grandnephews. Cec was a treasured member of Ingrid's family, especially beloved by Edith HANSEN, her son Jason, daughter Nicole and friend Scott.
Graduating from Northern Secondary School during the Depression, Cec worked in Toronto before heading to Northern Quebec in pursuit of a more rewarding life in the mining industry. He worked for Prospectors Airway and Mining Corp. at various mines in the Abitibi and Temiscaming regions, eventually residing in Noranda, where he left employment to start his own entrepreneurial endeavours.
Cec started his first enterprise in 1951, selling new and used mining equipment. With early success, he moved the family to Toronto where he expanded his business to include a number of small manufacturing companies. Always entrepreneurial, he acquired an expanding number of interests in businesses and mines, both public and private, from coast to coast. At 75, having achieved success and satisfaction, he retired from active business life.
Throughout his life he was an active participant in community life, and served in many capacities. He was Chairman of the University of Guelph, a Governor of the Scarborough Grace Hospital, an active member of the Prospectors and Developers Association, and the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy. Cec loved the outdoors, and was a proud founding member of the Goodwood Hunting Club and an active member of the Nicholson's Island Club. He was a very generous host at the York, Granite and Rosedale Clubs. Always a proud Canadian, he enjoyed fishing and hunting, his cottages and farms, and in pursuit of travelling the width and breadth of the country. He became a pilot at the age of 44.
A heartfelt thank you to the management and staff of every department of Thorncliffe Central Park Lodge, and especially to caregivers Amy, Helen, Josie and Macrina.
The family will receive Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), from 2: 00 - 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. on Sunday, January 30th.

FELKAI, Julius
In loving memory of Julius FELKAI, 61 years, of Toronto, Goulais River, Heron Bay, Copper Cliff, Lively, Tillsonburg, and Budapest, who passed away Monday, January 24th, 2005 at 11: 55 pm. He was a wonderful man -- generous beyond measure, with a compassionate heart. He reached out to strangers and readily helped many that crossed his path. He valued and loved children and was patient. His unique, witty, offbeat sense of humour has given his family memories that will be remembered for generations. He was born in 1943 Budapest, Hungary and immigrated to Tillsonburg, Ontario at the age of 13 years old. He attended Ryerson College and obtained a Civil Engineering degree. His work (construction sub-contracting business) took him throughout Northern Ontario including North Bay, Sudbury, Elliot Lake, Timmins, Sault Ste. Marie, Marathon, Hemlo, Manitouwadge, and Thunder Bay. His surviving family, who will cherish his memory, miss him deeply. He was a loving father to Sally -- expectant mother (partner Troy HANSEN,) Todd, Stephanie, Thomas (partner Julia WOOD,) Susan (fiancee Brant LEVERT) and grand-daughter Ruby. He is survived by his wife, Ruth, by his mother, Magda STEINER, and by his siblings Frank and Maggie. He has been welcomed into God's house by the saving grace of Jesus and is at peace after many years of discomfort from diabetes, high blood pressure and the long-term effects of a vehicle accident. He was admitted to hospital after falling on ice on January 14, 2005 and ten days later suffered cardiac arrest from septic shock. The funeral mass will be held on Saturday, January 29th at 10: 30 am at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church, 78 Clifton Road (N.W. corner of Mount Pleasant and St. Clair Avenue), and he will be laid to rest in St. Ladislaus Cemetary in Courtland, Ontario. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Canadian Diabetes Foundation.

KOCK, Henry
A leading authority on native woody plants, died of brain cancer on December 25, 2005, at the age of 53. Dubbed 'Mr. Arboretum,' Henry was a horticulturist at the University of Guelph Arboretum for almost 25 years until diagnosis in July 2004. Born in the Sarnia area, Henry grew up working in the family business, Huronview Nurseries. He graduated from the University of Guelph in 1977 with a focus on horticulture. Henry was a longtime fixture in Guelph. In the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi, he toured the province with his talks and slide shows, inspring countless people to protect wild places, to propagate native plant species, and to liberate their gardens from pesticides. Drawn to a landscape filled with sturdy, individual elm trees that had managed to resist the ravages of Dutch elm disease, Henry created the Elm Recovery Project, which will be his greatest legacy. He traversed Ontario, collecting seeds from sur viving elms. He planted and tended young elms for eventual dissemination back into the landscape. In 1991, Henry met the love of his life, Anne HANSEN, an artist and drama secretary at the University of Toronto. Anne and Henry blended her bicycle advocacy with his biological eco-activism. He rallied for peace in Iraq, renewable energy, public transit, and urban bicycling. He helped spearhead the Guelph Organic Conference, and every year, he and Anne attended International Women's Day in Toronto. Henry co-founded the Hillside Festival, which has become one of Canada's premiere folk music events. Henry received the Governor General's Award for Forest Stewardship in 1998. After Henry's diagnosis, he enjoyed 16 months of relatively robust health. Despite being on chemotherapy, he was able to bike, hike, and go on canoe trips. Henry had completed the first draft of a book on growing native trees from seed. Several of his botany colleagues now hope to complete this project. One of the last things he did this fall was to mount an old, decorated bicycle on the wall at the front of the house, a fitting symbol of how he stepped lightly on the planet. Henry is survived by his wife, Anne; his parents, Mary and Dick in Bright's Grove; his brother John COOK (Cynthia) in Forest; his sister Helen RYKENS (Dan McDERMOTT) in Toronto; as well as a neice and two nephews. He was predeceased by his sister Irene. A celebration of Henry's life will take place at the River Run Centre, 35 Woolwich Street, Guelph, Saturday, January 7, 2006 from 2-4 p.m. Donations to the Elm Recovery Project (519-824-4120 ext. 52113) in Henry's memory will be greatly appreciated.

KOCKA, Henry
leading authority on native woody plants, died of brain cancer on December 25, 2005, at the age of 53. Dubbed "Mr. Arboretum," Henry was a horticulturist at the University of Guelph Arboretum for almost 25 years until diagnosis in July 2004. Born in the Sarnia area, Henry grew up working in the family business, Huronview Nurseries. He graduated from the University of Guelph in 1977 with a focus on horticulture. Henry was a longtime fixture in Guelph. In the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi, he toured the province with his talks and slide shows, inspiring countless people to protect wild places, to propagate native plant species, and to liberate their gardens from pesticides. Drawn to a landscape filled with sturdy, individual elm trees that had managed to resist the ravages of Dutch elm disease, Henry created the Elm Recovery Project, which will be his greatest legacy. He traversed Ontario, collecting seeds from surviving elms. He planted and tended young elms for eventual dissemination back into the landscape. In 1991, Henry met the love of his life, Anne HANSEN, an artist and drama secretary at the University of Toronto. Anne and Henry blended her bicycle advocacy with his biological eco-activism. He rallied for peace in Iraq, renewable energy, public transit, and urban bicycling. He helped spearhead the Guelph Organic Conference, and every year, he and Anne attended International Women's Day in Toronto. Henry co-founded the Hillside Festival, which has become one of Canada's premiere folk music events. Henry received the Governor General's Award for Forest Stewardship in 1998. After Henry's diagnosis, he enjoyed 16 months of relatively robust health. Despite being on chemotherapy, he was able to bike, hike, and go on canoe trips. Henry had completed the first draft of a book on growing native trees from seed. Several of his botany colleagues now hope to complete this project. One of the last things he did this fall was to mount an old, decorated bicycle on the wall at the front of the house, a fitting symbol of how he stepped lightly on the planet. Henry is survived by his wife, Anne; his parents, Mary and Dick in Bright's Grove; his brother John COOK (Cynthia) in Forest; his sister Helen RYKENS (Dan McDERMOTT) in Toronto; as well as a niece and two nephews. He was predeceased by his sister Irene. A celebration of Henry's life will take place at the River Run Centre, 35 Woolwich Street, Guelph, Saturday, January 7, 2006 from 2-4 p.m. Donations to the Elm Recovery Project (519-824-4120 ext. 52113) in Henry's memory will be greatly appreciated.
