Volunteer, business 'pillar' LOCKYER dies
By Debora VAN BRENK, Free Press Reporter
As a corporate lawyer, Peter LOCKYER used his expertise and entrepreneurial skills to start a financial services company and serve as chairperson of a London-based bank. As a community member, LOCKYER gave his time to help the Anglican Church, Huron University College and other causes.
"He was the kind of guy who said, 'Something should be done -- let's do it,' Peter SPENCE, LOCKYER's law partner, said yesterday.
"If I had to use a phrase to describe Peter, it would be 'energetic enthusiasm,' " he added.
LOCKYER, 61, collapsed and died suddenly Monday while running with his wife, Gail.
A corporate lawyer with Lockyer Spence in London, LOCKYER was chairperson of Pacific and Western Bank of Canada, a London-based institution with more than $1 billion in assets.
He also was founder of Oak Trust Co. financial services.
LOCKYER's latest venture was a bid, with his Friends Andy SPRIET and Bob SISKIND, to buy the former central library on Queens Avenue and convert it to offices.
Yesterday, Friends described LOCKYER as energetic and athletic, committed to enterprise and volunteerism.
"London has lost a pillar in the business community," said Pacific and Western president David R. TAILOR/TAYLOR, who for 20 years has counted LOCKYER as a friend and colleague.
"He was enthusiastic, passionate, highly motivated."
And publicly low-key, said Bishop Bruce HOWE of the Anglican diocese of Huron.
"He wasn't standing up looking for accolades. But those of us who have the privilege of working with him in some of his volunteer activities knew he was there and was committed."
LOCKYER headed the diocese's investment committee and was past chairperson of the executive board of Huron University College. He served both groups "with distinction," HOWE said.
LOCKYER's sudden death shocked all who knew him.
"Peter was one of those fellows you'd think would live to 100 easily. He was the epitome of health," TAILOR/TAYLOR said.
LOCKYER was an exceptional tennis player and an avid skier who also worked out regularly in his home gym.
He was proud of a recent series of routine medical tests that showed he was in tip-top shape: "He was like a kid with a straight-A report card," SPENCE said.
He was a teen when he first met LOCKYER 31 years ago and asked the lawyer for career advice. LOCKYER became a mentor and a friend.
"We had more of a brother relationship than anything," SPENCE said of the man he described as a visionary.
"He wasn't in the spotlight a lot," SPENCE said, "but he had a lot of influence, positive influence, in the city. I don't think we or the community will fully appreciate the loss for a while."
LOCKYER also was past-president of the London Hunt and Country Club and past chairperson of the National Seniors Tennis Championships.
LOCKYER is survived by his wife, three daughters and his father. Visitation is tomorrow at the James A. Harris Funeral home, with the funeral to be held Friday at 11 a.m. at St. Paul's Cathedral.

MUIRHEAD, Amelia “Ivy” (formerly AYRES, née STARLING)
Amelia “Ivy” MUIRHEAD passed away peacefully on Wednesday, August 17, 2005 in Caressant Care nursing home in Woodstock, Ontario, at the age of 99. Amelia was the widow of Gavin Stuart MUIRHEAD and Wilfrid Maxwell AYRES. Amelia (née STARLING) was born in 1906 in Cheveley, England. Lovingly called “Nanny” by those close to her, Amelia worked as a governess for the family of an English country gentleman and then for a prominent family in Denmark. Her service afforded her a unique opportunity to travel throughout Europe. She married her first husband Wilfrid AYRES in Cheveley in 1929 before immigrating to Canada in 1930 on the Empress of Scotland. The young couple settled in Montreal, Quebec where they raised two daughters and a son. Wilfrid passed away in 1965 following a battle with lung cancer. Amelia volunteered her time as president of the Cancer Society at Saint Mark's Church in St. Laurent, Quebec. She married her second husband Gavin MUIRHEAD in 1968 in St. Laurent and then moved with him to Woodstock in 1977. Amelia soon became an active member of Old St. Paul's Anglican Church and was involved in numerous church endeavours. She was accomplished in many arts and crafts and was especially adept at crochet and knitting. Her garden afforded her countless hours of enjoyment and she enjoyed walks and new learning experiences. Amelia remained active for many years after Gavin passed on in 1985 but when her own health started to fail she moved into a retirement residence before settling into the Caressant Care nursing home.
She leaves behind her son John AYRES and his wife Eliane Leclerc AYRES and two daughters Brenda MAVER (née AYRES) and Sheila WALKER (née AYRES) and daughter-in-law Elaine AYRES (née FAHRNER:) grandchildren Robin AYRES, Rand AYRES, Ken MAVER, Kathryn BROWNE (née MAVER), Robert WALKER, Tobin WALKER and Joanne TATRO (née WALKER); great grandchildren Robert MAVER, Michael MAVER, Andrew BROWNE, Sean BROWNE, Jaime WALKER, Kevin WALKER, and Keliann WALKER.

Evelyn HORNE, Civil Servant and Volunteer: 1907-2005
Ottawa secretary worked for Mackenzie KING and was acquainted with a succession of prime ministers. From her vantage point at the centre of power, she saw everything and knew everyone
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to the Globe and Mail, Tuesday, May 17, 2005 Page S9
Ottawa -- Everyone came to see Evelyn HORNE to pick her brains on people and policy, including Jean CHRÉTIEN. She spent 30 years at the centre of political power. Starting with Mackenzie KING, Miss HORNE knew five prime ministers in a row, including Louis SSAINTURENT, John DIEFENBAKER, Lester PEARSON and Pierre TRUDEAU.
From 1941 to 1973, Miss HORNE perched just off centre stage as a perceptive spectator of some of the most tumultuous events in recent Canadian history -- from the anxious years of the Second World War to the new welfare state that came later. Surrounded by statesmen, politicians, governors-general and civil servants, Miss HORNE knew practically all of them, many on a first-name basis.
"She told me that she knew CHRÉTIEN when he was a young pup who came and sat on the corner of her desk and talked politics," said her nephew, Robert PIKE of Ottawa.
Other Ottawa mandarins who valued Miss HORNE for her administrative skills during the '40s and '50s included Prime Minister Paul MARTIN's father, Paul MARTIN Sr., Jack PICKERSGILL and C.D. HOWE.
For all that, Miss HORNE never forgot the years she spent working for Mackenzie KING. Getting that job was a "case of being in the right place at the right time and knowing the right people though I would be selling myself short if I didn't admit that I had some native intelligence and was willing to go the second mile into overtime when it was necessary," she said in 1997.
Miss HORNE first attracted Mr. King's attention when, as a provincial civil servant, she was secretary of the committee organizing the Nova Scotia segment of the 1939 visit to Canada of King George Virgin Islands and Queen Elizabeth.
"When Mr. KING asked to meet me during his tour of East Coast defences in the fall of 1940, I knew I was to be interviewed for a job. And what an interview! Presumably, someone had told him that I could write a fairly good letter; he asked me nothing about my work capabilities," said Miss HORNE.
Instead, Mr. KING quizzed her about the architectural features of the room they were sitting in at Nova Scotia's Province House, Canada's oldest seat of government. "[It was] the most perfect example of Adam architecture in North America. He asked me to explain the symbolism of the bas-relief around the fireplace and recount the history behind the life-size portraits of kings and queens that adorned the walls," she said.
Fortunately, Miss HORNE knew all the answers and found herself in Ottawa in January of 1941. "My first reaction was disappointment. I found the city dull and boring -- after Halifax. There was no immediate awareness that there was a war on. And I was very disappointed in [my new] job. I was assigned to do the 'routine correspondence.' "
It was so simple and repetitive, she was "bored to tears. When I could stand it no longer, I complained to the boss -- not Mr. KING, of course, but [to his] principal secretary. I said I wanted to go back home. The work was too easy -- there was no challenge I didn't have enough to do. As a result, I was given the responsibility for the whole of the Prime Minister's correspondence."
That task was not without its lighter moments, Miss HORNE told her niece, Frances PIKE. " One day, she reached an envelope addressed 'To the Biggest Prick in Canada.' There was nothing inside except an unused condom. 'Mr. PICKERSGILL,' she said, 'what do I do with this'? He said, 'Miss HORNE, I'll take care of it. As far as the contents are concerned, you may do with it what you will.'"
Although Miss HORNE rarely saw Mr. KING during the war, the Prime Minister's Office "was an exciting place to be, right at the heart of government, during those increasingly intense years of war. There were so many pressing concerns, and all kinds of people wrote to the Prime Minister about all kinds of problems. I had to find the answers, or find the people who could.
"I learned so much, not only about government, but also about the people of this country, who showed so much courage, stoicism, and forbearance in the face of all the tragedy and the hardships that affected us all during those terrible years."
In 1946, Miss HORNE moved from the East Block to Laurier House, Mr. KING's home, where she handled his personal correspondence and did some speechwriting. "I became acquainted with [him] as a person, and I liked him."
In 1950, Miss HORNE struck an early blow for women's rights after she went to work for the assistant private secretary to Robert WINTERS, then minister of reconstruction and supply. Despite all her experience, Mr. WINTERS "wouldn't take her on trips because he thought that was unseemly. So he hired a man, whom she had to train. He was hopeless, but making more money than her," said Mr. PIKE, the nephew.
When Miss HORNE complained to her boss that she should be earning as much as the new man, he retorted that he saw no reason for a raise -- she was making excellent money "for a woman."
"So she packed up and went home," said Mr. PIKE. " Then she called Jack PICKERSGILL, who told her to sit tight for a few days and he'd see what he could do. Very soon after, she went to work for Ellen FAIRCLOUGH at the Department of Citizenship and Immigration."
Miss HORNE finished her career with the federal government in 1973 when she retired from the National Film Board. Awarded the Coronation Medal in 1953 and the Centennial Medal in 1967, she received a Governor-General's Caring Canadian Award in 2004 for her years spent as a volunteer.
Miss HORNE first started volunteering during the First World War, when she knitted scarves for the troops. "I distinctly remember the outbreak of the war in 1914, and I recall many occasions when I went to the train station in Truro with my mother to meet the troop trains to present gifts of food and cigarettes and warm knitted items."
When the Second World War broke out in 1939, Miss HORNE's volunteering became a "way of life. I worked as a check-girl for the weekly dances at the famous North End Services Canteen, and playing the odd game of snooker with the boys who didn't feel like dancing. Many times, I would best serve by lending a sympathetic ear or looking at pictures of sweethearts or wives and children back home."
Life in Halifax during the war was grim, she recounted. "The most vulnerable spot in all of Canada, the city was actually at war and everyone pitched in to help. I can laughingly say that my war work was entertaining and being entertained by the officers of the great battleships that anchored in Halifax harbour. We had a lively social life.
"But the shadow of war was always close at hand; and more than once, men I had danced with one night were brought back two days later, burned beyond recognition when their ship was torpedoed by German U-boats just beyond the harbour headlands. Volunteer visits to Camp Hill, the [military] hospital, were a high priority for me at that time."
Evelyn Annie Ethel HORNE was born on February 23, 1907, in Truro, Nova Scotia She died of heart failure on March 21, 2005, in Ottawa. She was 98. She leaves her niece, Frances; nephews Robert, David, Peter and Donald; 16 great-nieces; and 11 great-great-nieces and nephews.

HOWE, Laura Frances
Our Mom has passed away peacefully after a long struggle with Alzheimer's. She was predeceased by her beloved husband Hal in 1987. She was so loved and will be sorely missed by her family daughter Karen and husband Bill HURST, Jude and her late husband Dennis McGANN, grandchildren Andrew Hurst Gillian of Ottawa, Christian Hurst Ellen of Toronto, and Erin McGann Christopher of London, England. She will be missed by her great grandchildren Freya and Dylan, who so delighted her.
Born in Michigan, she spent most of her life in Montreal where she was active in the United Church, in womens' groups and contributing her lovely alto voice to the choir. Golf and Friends at the Royal Montreal Golf Club, travel overseas and in their beloved Airstream trailer were among her fondest memories. In retirement they relocated to Victoria Place, Bobcaygeon and to Don Mills where Mom found support in a wonderful group of Friends.
Mom was everything a mom should be; warm, strong, supportive, never restrictive. The family and all the Friends she touched will remember the open, loving, generous woman she was before Alzheimers stole her away from us.
Friends may call at the Trull "North Toronto" Funeral Home and Cremation Centre, 2704 Yonge Street (5 Blocks south of Lawrence) on Thursday from 7 to 9 p.m. A funeral service will be held at The Donway Covenant United Church, 230 The Donway West, on Friday August 19th at 3: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in Mom's memory to the Alzheimer Society of Canada, 20 Eglinton Avenue West, Suite 1200, Toronto, M4R 1K8, to further research into eliminating this cruel disease.

ARMOUR, John Victor, C.A.
It is with mixed feelings that our family announces the passing of John Victor ARMOUR on Saturday, December 3, 2005. We feel sorrow at the loss of a beloved husband, father and grandfather, but also relief for the end of his valiant struggle. Left to mourn him are his loving wife of 58 years, Joyce, his daughters Joanne (David) HOWE, and Vicki (Graham) PARKER, and his five grandchildren, Jennifer, Christopher and Samantha HOWE, and Megan and David PARKER. Victor will also be missed by his special sister-in-law, Robin BARNES. It is difficult to encapsulate the life of any man, but Victor would especially wish to be remembered for his Welsh heritage. He was born on January 1, 1917, in Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales and emigrated to Canada in 1926. He was a proud Canadian, but he maintained his love of Wales throughout his life. And like many Welshmen, Victor was blessed with a magical singing voice which was showcased when he was one of the original Choir boys at All Saints Anglican Church in Hamilton. Victor was also proud of his service in the Second World War. Achieving the rank of Captain, Victor was responsible for the transport of war brides back to Canada and was awarded several medals. Even near the end of his life, when most memories had faded, Victor could easily and flawlessly recite his army rank and serial number. Finally, Victor would like to be remembered for his achievements in the business world. He worked tirelessly through correspondence courses to become a chartered accountant and he became secretary-treasurer of one of the largest car dealerships in Canada, Elgin Motors in Toronto. While there, Victor revolutionized and instituted an accounting system which later became the standard for other dealerships in Ontario. On a more personal note, the family would like Victor to be remembered as the caring, decent man that he was. Although brutally honest and tactless to a fault, Victor epitomized the honour and grace of a gentler world. His generosity of spirit, caring of all living things and devotion to his family were unsurpassed. We would like to thank him and may God bless him. We say goodbye to our dear Victor, our Dad and our Grandpa. We love you and may you rest in peace. The family would be happy to receive visitors at Smith's Funeral Home, 485 Brant Street (one block north of City Hall), Burlington (905-632-3333) on Monday, December 5th from 3-5 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. A Service celebrating Vic's Life will be held in the Chapel of the Funeral Home on Tuesday, December 6, 2005 at 10: 30 a.m. Please join us for a reception which will follow in the same facility. If so desired, the family would sincerely appreciate expressions of sympathy, in Victor's name, to a charity of your choice. www.smiths.fh.com
