VANDUZER, The Honourable Mr. Justice John Elston
Nov. 8, 2005 If ever there lived a modern-day chevalier, that man was John Elston VANDUZER. Born October 14, 1927 in Winona, south of Hamilton, John was raised with his brother Dick on the family fruit farm but felt destined to be a city gentleman. After completing his secondary education in Hamilton, John did his B.A. at McMaster University (1950) before attending Osgoode Hall. After articling with Fraser and Beatty, he entered into private practice in Hamilton, but found his real calling when he was appointed to the Family Court, in 1966. John's professional life was a memorable succession of selfless initiatives: he co-founded the Unified Family Court in 1976, was the first Canadian President of the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts, set up the Dawn Patrol Group Home to aid troubled youth, was an Elder and Sunday School Teacher at St. Giles' United Church, served on the Committee for Citizens of Distinction and as President of the Hamilton Community Concert. John was a tireless advocate for families and a leading member of his community. In recognition of this, he was awarded an Honourary Doctorate of Laws by McMaster University in 2003.
Above all, John treasured his family. He was blessed with two wonderful marriages: the first to Betty ANDERSON, whom he met in Latin class at McMaster and married in 1955 and with whom he had three children, Tony (Jodie KARPF,) Peter (Kathy HALLIDAY,) and Sarah (John HELSTON.) After Betty's death in 1984, John entered into a joyous union with Joan WANSBROUGH (née LAWSON) in 1985 and found himself a delighted stepfather to Michael (Liane BEAM,) Connie (Eric LOWY) and Gwyn (Andres DUSSAN.) He was an adored Grandpa to Taylor, Eli, Anders, Mac, Simone, Claire, Melissa, Kaitlin, Diego and Daniela.
A master storyteller, dapper dresser and consummate host, John enjoyed life to the full. With Joan he travelled the world, enjoyed the arts, entertained his wide circle of dear Friends, and reveled in the beauty of their cottage on Peninsula Lake, and their farm at Mansfield.
The best summary of John's life comes from his granddaughter, Simone. When in 2002 John retired from the bench and was feted during his last day in court, in full regalia and with many testimonials to his skills in jurisprudence and mediation, four-year-old Simone looked up at her Uncle Peter and, in an awestruck voice, asked "Is Grandpa a hero?" Yes, Simone, John Elston VANDUZER was a hero.
There will be a Celebration and Tribute to John at the Hamilton Golf and Country Club, 232 Golf Links Road, Ancaster, on Sunday, November 13th, 2005, from 12: 00-3:00 p.m. John would love all his Friends and family to be there.
Donations in lieu of flowers may be made to the John E. VanDuzer Scholarship Fund through the Hamilton Community Foundation, 120 King St. W., Suite 700, Hamilton, L8C 4V2.
