ANDREAE, Herbert Christopher (1919-2005)
Passed away peacefully in his sleep after a prolonged illness. Beloved husband of Ruth (née BAUMAN/BOWMAN,) married 63 years. Dear father of Patricia HORNSBY (Fred) and Dan. Will be sadly missed by his grandchildren, Chris HOLT (Audrey,) Carrie HOLT and Charlie HOLT, and by his great-grandchildren Emma and Ben HOLT. He was pre-deceased by his siblings, Corrie WOOD, Dr. Arnold ANDREWS, and Mary ANDREAE. The son of a Dutch diplomat, he served as an Royal Canadian Air Force bomber pilot in Burma during World War 2. After returning from the War, he graduated from The University of Toronto with a Master of Commerce degree. He began his career working for Harry JACKMAN as an investment analyst with the Jackman Group of Companies. After seven rewarding years working with Mr. JACKMAN, he ventured out on his own and later brought in prominent investment managers, Jim COLE and Austin THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, to form an investment counselling business. One of the pioneers of the Canadian investment management industry, he launched and managed the Andreae Equity Fund, a leading equity mutual fund in the 1950's and 1960's. He also served as President of the Security Analysts' Association of Toronto in 1957-58 (a for-runner of the Toronto Society of Financial Analysts) and as a director of the Debenture Securities Corporation. In 1970, at the age of 50, he was described by the Toronto business media as, 'the grand old man of mutual funds.' He later sold Andreae Equity to First National City Bank of New York (now Citibank), negotiating the transaction with its President, Walter Wriston. After this sale, he agreed to serve as President of International Trust Company, Citibank's Canadian operation, and later acted as a consultant to Citibank in Geneva, Switzerland. After living in Geneva for several years, he moved to London, England and then returned to Toronto in 2004 to be closer to his family. An avid student of his family's genealogy, he was an enthusiastic supporter of the Andreae Ouheidkamer Museum, a regional museum located near an ancestral estate in Kollum, Holland. He spoke several languages and enjoyed travelling extensively. He enjoyed sailing and was a long-time member of the Royal Canadian Yacht Club. He was also a member of The Albany Club and The National Club. Private funeral arrangements have been made.

William SOMERVILLE, Mover And Shaker 1921-2005
Poor farmer's son rose to the corporate boardroom and maintained a lifelong passion for politics
By Stephen STRAUSS, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, August 15, 2005, Page S11
Every summer when he went to the family cottage for a vacation, William SOMERVILLE would bring the same book to re-read. It was Dale Carnegie's classic self-improvement text: How To Make Friends And Influence People.
In retrospect, the book's central message -- work relentlessly at getting people to do what you want them to do by having them think it is what they want to do -- captures much of the reason for Mr. SOMERVILLE's highly successful forays into business, government and the voluntary sector.
"He understood, when you deal with government, you don't go and ask what you can do for me. You understand that they have problems and they want help in solving their problems," recalled Hal JACKMAN, the Toronto financier for whom he worked for 20 years.
That, an affable manner, a firm handshake and a photographic memory for names helped Mr. SOMERVILLE rise to chairman and Chief Executive Officer of National Trust Co., chairman of the Ontario Pension Fund, and president of the Stratford Festival, among other things.
The work ethic came naturally to a poor farmer's son in Saint Marys, Ontario, whose poverty worsened when at 5, his father died.
The SOMERVILLE family's poverty meant that, unlike his brother, Mr. SOMERVILLE couldn't go on to any higher education after high school, but instead joined his brother's drug store. The two brothers then went into the wholesale drug trade until Mr. SOMERVILLE joined British Mortgage and Trust Co. in Saint Marys in 1965. The main reason seemingly was the challenge of doing something different, as he would joke afterward that it took him 20 years in the trust business to achieve his drug-business salary.
All the while he was indulging in his other favourite activity after work -- politics. Born into a big-L Liberal family, married to the daughter of another Liberal family, Mr. SOMERVILLE had grown up in a small-town Ontario atmosphere in which politics was not only discussed but so intensely scrutinized that everyone's probable vote was dissected after each election.
The political bent meant, first of all, that Mr. SOMERVILLE was elected mayor of Saint Marys in the 1960s. In 1963, a young John TURNER came to town to open a dam and the two hit it off immediately. The result was a 40-year Friendship with a man Mr. SOMERVILLE told his family was the most impressive politician he had ever met. The feeling was reciprocated.
"He had a dedicated work ethic, a fine sense of detail, a personal warmth for those of us he dealt with," is how former prime minister John TURNER summed up Mr. SOMERVILLE.
In 1968, Mr. SOMERVILLE tried to launch himself onto the national political stage by running for Parliament as part of Pierre Trudeau's election steamroller. While Mr. TRUDEAU swept the country, even Trudeaumania could not get Mr. SOMERVILLE elected in Conservative, rural, southwestern Ontario. However, after the election, Mr. TRUDEAU came to the SOMERVILLE house for a get-together and galvanized the neighbourhood.
"It was the biggest jam of people you ever saw," said his wife Jean. A picture of the time shows Mr. SOMERVILLE beside Mr. TRUDEAU beaming a characteristic cherubic smile.
Mr. SOMERVILLE found time to be the chairman of fundraising for both the Liberal Party of Ontario and the Liberal Party of Canada. His behind-the-scenes abilities led to him to be described as one of the most important people in Ontario politics who didn't hold a seat in Parliament.
According to Mrs. SOMERVILLE, while her husband always had high political aspirations for himself -- at his retirement he mused to a local newspaper that he always wanted to be prime minister his growing business interests meant he couldn't pursue full-time politics.
In mid-1965, Atlantic Acceptance Corp. collapsed with $150-million in uncollected debts. British Mortgage and Trust Co. was part of the same company, and Mr. SOMERVILLE feared he would lose his job. However, he wangled a supposed five-minute interview with Walter HARRIS, who had been the federal minister of finance in Louis SSAINTURENT's Liberal government, and who was the head of Victoria and Grey Trust, which had taken over British Mortgage after the debacle.
The two men immediately clicked, both professionally and politically, and after a three-hour interview, Mr. SOMERVILLE was offered the head of British Mortgage's office in Stratford, Ontario
In Stratford, he soon found himself involved in the promotion of the Stratford Festival, an organization of which he became chairman in 1985/86. His participation was more an example of his sense of what a public-spirited person should do than a result of his great love of theatre. "He was not necessarily a Shakespeare person," said his wife, dryly. But he was exactly what a festival that was running a million-dollar yearly deficit needed -- a sound businessman. Within a few years of his taking over, Stratford was turning a profit.
In 1970, Victoria and Grey was taken over by Mr. JACKMAN, who also found Mr. SOMERVILLE to be an astute businessman with a genius at making and keeping Friends. He was particularly impressed with the affinity for the small businessmen and farmers of rural Ontario that Mr. SOMERVILLE maintained while working on Bay Street.
The relationship with Mr. JACKMAN, a well-known supporter of the Conservative Party, underscored something about Mr. SOMERVILLE's Liberalism. He was what you might call a blue Liberal. "Dad liked the Liberals as a Tory party with a social conscience," said his son, John.
Eventually, Mr. SOMERVILLE became head of National Trust, Canada's third-largest trust company, when it merged with Victoria and Grey in the 1980s. Not only did the merger initially mean working 18-hour days and seven-day weeks, but he had to both cut staff and increase the workload. He was so cost-conscious at the time that the story floated about that he had cancelled the office Christmas party. No, no, he later told a journalist. He had given the job of organizing the party to one of his lieutenants who had become miffed with the post-merger politics of the workplace. "The guy... was planning to leave and he walked and did nothing about [the party]," he explained sadly.
For a man who often told his family that work was his hobby, his retirement from National Trust in 1989 was hardly a retirement at all. Two days later he was approached by David Peterson's Liberal government to become chairman of the Ontario Pension Board. He was so successful at this that he was reappointed both by Bob Rae's New Democratic Party government and Mike Harris's Conservative one after that.
He also served as chancellor of Windsor University and was honorary chancellor for life at Assumption University, a small Catholic school in Windsor.
At the end of his life the true-blue Liberal had become a simply blue Conservative. Upset with what he saw as Liberal arrogance in power, in the past few elections he had begun to vote Tory. He was a great admirer of Ontario premier Mike Harris, who he thought ran the government with business smarts, but in an even more right turn, the formerly blue Liberal was lavish in his praise for the federal Conservative Party's bluest of leaders Stephen Harper.
William Henry SOMERVILLE was born in Perth County, Ontario, on April 25, 1921. He died of the effects of Parkinson's disease in Stratford General Hospital on July 23. He was 84. He is survived by wife Jean, son John, daughter Karen and four grandchildren.

Agnes JACKS, Ringette Promoter: 1923-2005
As a champion of a sport known as the little sister of hockey, she took up the banner from Sam JACKS, its inventor
By Allison LAWLOR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Tuesday, April 19, 2005, Page S9
In the early days, enthusiastic young girls and women flooded onto outdoor rinks in northern Ontario, wearing discarded hockey skates and clutching broken hockey sticks. Up and down the ice they skated, chasing a ring. Most of the players didn't wear uniforms, and some preferred pink sweaters and matching pink sticks to keep the neighbourhood boys away from the rink.
It was 1963, and ringette was born. Agnes JACKS was there watching the emergence of the game her husband had invented to give girls and women their own winter team sport. Over the next 40 years, she saw it grow from a handful of young women in northern Ontario to a presence in half a dozen countries around the world. In Canada alone, it counts more than 25,000 players competing on nearly 2,000 teams. Even today, the sport is primarily for women and girls.
Over the years, Ms. JACKS became known as the ringette ambassador for Canada. She tirelessly travelled the world to boost the sport that Mr. JACKS invented in North Bay when he was the city's parks and recreation director. When he died of cancer in 1975 at 59, she continued her husband's legacy.
"In the early 1960s, there was a great need for girls' and women's sports," Ms. JACKS told the Kitchener-Waterloo Record in 2003. "Sam could see the need."
Mr. JACKS patched together hockey and basketball rules to create a fluid, non-contact game that soon became one of the fastest team sports on ice. Six years after he invented ringette, which has been called the little sister to hockey, the Ontario Ringette Association was founded with a government grant of $229.27. At the time, it numbered 1,500 players in 14 communities.
The sport boomed after the mid-1970s when the other provinces took an interest and formed ringette associations. In particular, it gained a firm footing in Quebec and first appeared there in Mount Royal where it was introduced by Herb LINDER, a good friend of the JACKS. In the late 1970s, the United States also started leagues. By all accounts, former Toronto Maple Leafs coach Roger NEILSON used ringette during the late 1970s to vary routines at practice. That got the attention of the then coach of the Czechoslovak national hockey team, who took home information on the game and adopted it in training and for his country's universities.
Ms. JACKS, who became honorary president of the International Ringette Association, didn't play the game herself but sponsored trophies and scholarships for outstanding players, coaches and officials and faithfully attended as many ringette tournaments and championship events as she could. In March, she was at the Ontario provincial AA championships in Ottawa. Young athletes flocked to her to ask for autographs and for words of encouragement.
"She always told us that we were 'her girls' and you believed it," said Laura WARNER, ringette's Team Canada captain. The one bit of advice she repeatedly gave to the girls was "stay out of the penalty box." When she said this to you, said Ms. WARNER, you felt she was honestly encouraging you to play ringette in the true spirit of the game -- fair play, sportsmanship and teamwork.
Like hockey, ringette is played on ice with skates and sticks and six players on each team -- a goalie and five skaters. But instead of a puck, the players pursue a rubber ring, which must be shot into a standard hockey net. The ring is passed to another player, rather than carried from zone to zone, all of which makes it a very team-oriented game. Wingers carry bladeless, red sticks so that an official can identify them if they illegally enter their own zone. Defence players have blue sticks and are not allowed in the attacking zone. The rules allow for fast play and little congestion in any zone. While hockey has become a game associated with body contact, ringette is not. A player receives a penalty for any body contact.
Like boys' hockey, ringette is divided into divisions: petite for girls 10 years and under, tweens for 12 and under, juniors for 14 and under, belles for 17 and under, debs for 18 and under and ladies for those over 20. It is not uncommon to find 25-year-old players who first took up the game at 6. Some dedicated veterans are in their mid-50s.
When they first take up the sport, young girls can be self-conscious about wearing boys' skates but soon stop worrying about it. Eventually, they give up wearing figure skates -- even for public skating and some abandon figure skating in favour of ringette.
Ms. WARNER remembers the first time she saw Ms. JACKS. She was just 14 years old and excited to be at the opening ceremony of the national ringette championships. Suddenly everyone around her stood and started cheering. She looked up and saw a petite, Scottish woman walking onto the stage.
"As soon as she started talking you couldn't not be drawn to her. "This [was] someone with an unparalleled love of the sport," Ms. WARNER said. "You could feel her love for the game."
In 2001, Ms. JACKS was appointed a member of the Order of Canada for her devotion to the sport. "She is an example of integrity, selflessness and devotion," the citation reads. "For over 30 years, she has promoted ringette as a medium for girls and women to benefit from the physical activity and personal growth derived from team sports... She has become a goodwill ambassador, imparting the importance of perseverance, good conduct and fair play to tens of thousands of young athletes."
Agnes MacKRELL was a Scottish lass who, during the Second World War, moved to England to work in a munitions plant. It was at a dance where she met Sam JACKS, a young Canadian soldier and recreation director in the army. After the war, he took her back home with him to Canada. They arrived in Halifax and made their way to Toronto and then in 1946 to North Bay. While Ms. JACKS didn't see her husband's dream of ringette becoming an Olympic sport fulfilled, she did see it inch closer to that goal. She remained faithful to the sport and its community until the end and had planned to attend the 2005 Canadian Ringette Championships that would up in Winnipeg on Saturday.
"I love the game," Ms. JACKS told a reporter in 2003. "It has everything a sport needs -- skill, speed, passion and no checking."
Agnes JACKS was born in Scotland on August 17, 1923. She died of heart failure on April 1, 2005, at the North Bay General Hospital. She was 81. She leaves her sons Barry, Bruce and Brian; three brothers and two sisters; 11 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

DELLAI, Dedena (née MORELLO) (June 16, 1907-May 19, 2005)
To live in the hearts we leave behind is not to die. Dedena lived a long wonderfully adventurous life. Sshe began singing with the Rosslino Opera Co. in the 1940's as well as acting. Her career on radio started with CHUM, then in Hamilton, followed with Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Television on Wojak, with John Vernon. In her 85th year Dedena worked for various provincial courts as an interpreter. She learned to drive near age 63; after a car repair, officers would warn each other "watch out guys, Ma's on the road again." So many talented and dedicated people shared her days. Dedena enjoyed a loving working and social relationship with her dear friend Ontario SARRICINI. They shared hard work and humour, and I'm afraid pranks on and off radio were sometimes the order of the day. A Friendship that tugs at the heart as the memories linger, she will always be remembered with fondness by Ontario and his wife Anna, and their children Christina and Anthony. Predeceased by her dear husband Giovanni, precious daughter Maria, son John, deeply loved sister Pierina, brothers Aldo and Ezio. Dedena leaves her adored broken-hearted family, daughter Joan, darling grandchildren Leah, Christina, Andrea, John and Tom. She dearly loved her David (Barba Rosa) Gordon and son-in-law Paul. Great-grandmother to dear Tarra, Alex, Michael and the late Barbara. Dedena's true and deep love for her sister Ida FAZZARI was unfailing in its devotion; she held her close to her heart to keep always and forever, "Ia vita mia legato a te." She purely loved her nephews and nieces, dearest Maria, Ida, "picola" Lucille, Les, Joanne, Naldie, and the late Lolita and Anne. Her babies Nikki and Clementine were a constant joy for her, as well as little Coco who screeches "Ma" all day. Many thanks to St. Elizabeth's staff, and their caregivers Ida and Elizabeth, with special love to dear Shirley and Nadine, whose loyalty and skill were exceptional. Thanks to dear nurse Renata, and loved nurse Ganine JACKS, for their constant skill and devotion, "bella, non te scordar di me." In lieu of flowers, a prayer for families listed here today and for those who have loved ones in hospitals would be appreciated. Cremation. A celebration of Dedena's life will take place this summer. Sleep warm darling mother. Gather a star for each of us and their light shall show the strength in what remains behind.

Memories don't fade, they just grow deep
For the one we loved but could not keep
We hold our tears when we speak your name
But the ache in our hearts remains the same
No one knows the sorrow we share
When the family meets and you're not there
We laugh, we smile and we play our parts

Unseen, unheard, you 're always near
So loved, so missed, so very dear

Former Owen Sound mayor dies
Bob RUTHERFORD served the city for nearly 30 years
By Jonathon JACKSON, Saturday, March 05, 2005
Bob RUTHERFORD, whose career in municipal politics spanned nearly 30 years and included 16 years as Owen Sound's mayor, has died. He was 76.
Mayor Ruth LOVELL announced his death Friday during council's budget deliberations.
Mr. RUTHERFORD had been in Owen Sound hospital for a few weeks before he died there. The nature of his illness was not announced.
“I will certainly remember him as a very effective and personable mayor,” LOVELL said Friday. “He will be a person who is very missed.&rdquo
“He just loved this community,” said Coun. Arlene WRIGHT, who worked with Mr. RUTHERFORD at Rutherford Signs for 20 years.
“A true politician, dedicated,” summed up Gail NORRIS, who has worked for six Owen Sound mayors. “When he talked, people listened to him.&rdquo
Mr. RUTHERFORD was first elected to city council in 1962 and became mayor in 1965. He served in that position until being defeated in 1974 by Warren LOUGHEED. Mr. RUTHERFORD returned to office in 1976, ousting LOUGHEED in the next election.
He was mayor until 1982, when he was defeated largely due to his support for what was then a controversial plan to replace the city's downtown arena with what is now called the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre.
After the arena was condemned due to a structural problem, Mr. RUTHERFORD engineered a deal with A and P to build a new grocery store on the site of the old arena. He then helped push through an application which helped the new community centre qualify for an expiring grant program with only one day to spare.
But in a time of soaring interest rates and a poor economy, fears of higher taxes because of the Bayshore's cost resulted in Mr. RUTHERFORD's defeat and the election of Ovid JACKSON as mayor.
“The most wonderful thing that I ever got for the city... was the thing that killed me,” Mr. RUTHERFORD said on election night in 1982.
“I have no regrets. I would not have changed anything along the way.&rdquo
NORRIS, who still works in the mayor's office, recalls clearly a conversation she and Mr. RUTHERFORD had which she thinks says a lot about him.
“ ‘Gail, I'm going to vote that we build the Bayshore because the grants are available now and we need a new arena.' But he said, ‘I can tell you, I'll probably lose the election, ' ” she said. “What always amazed me was the day they opened the building and Bob was a guest, they gave him a standing ovation. You know, he had the vision.&rdquo
In 1985, as he had done in 1976, he challenged the man who had defeated him. JACKSON won re-election and Mr. RUTHERFORD vowed he was done with politics.
“I'm finished,” he said at the time. “I'll never run as a candidate again.&rdquo
It was a promise he didn't keep. He ran for a spot on city council in 1988, finished fifth in a field of 11 and served Owen Sound for three more years.
WRIGHT, who at one time was also Mr. RUTHERFORD's neighbour, said she always appreciated how he was a blue-collar worker who slipped comfortably into the mayor's chair.
“He was just an all-round guy and very well liked.&rdquo
He was president of the Association of Municipalities of Ontario in his final term on council, she noted, and he always kept abreast of goings-on at city hall. In fact, he dropped into city hall a year ago during budget deliberations.
NORRIS visited Mr. RUTHERFORD last Sunday, shortly after she'd heard he was in the hospital.
“We had a nice visit but I knew that he was extremely ill... But he still had the twinkle in his eye and the smiles.&rdquo
The arrival of some of Owen Sound's industrial plants also coincided with Mr. RUTHERFORD's terms of office, NORRIS added.
The family released a list of 18 clubs and boards to which Mr. RUTHERFORD belonged, ranging from the board of governors at Georgian College to the North Star Masonic Lodge to the Owen Sound Jaycees. His family declined to comment on Mr. RUTHERFORD's passing in a note sent from Breckenridge-Ashcroft Funeral Home.
In an interview on the eve of the 2000 municipal election, Mr. RUTHERFORD reflected on his political life.
“I had love for the city and I wanted to get involved,” said Mr. RUTHERFORD, who owned a downtown sign business for many years. “I was fortunate enough to be able to have the time, as my father and my stepbrother both said they'd run the shop while I worked at running the city.
“It's something you really have to love and enjoy, because you do take a lot of criticism. You're close to the people. They can pick up the phone and phone you and tell you what they think.&rdquo
He tried unsuccessfully to unseat both Progressive Conservative member of Parliament Gus MITGES and Liberal member of provincial parliament Eddie SARGENT. SARGENT had preceded him as mayor.
“I ran against Eddie a couple of times, but that's what you call ass-burning learning,” he said with a laugh.
Robert Edward RUTHERFORD is survived by his wife, Shirley J. RUTHERFORD (née EBY,) was father of Ross WARD and his wife Penny, Brent RUTHERFORD, Catherine and her husband Bob WEBBER and Rahnda YULE. He leaves eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, his brother Tim RUTHERFORD and his wife Violet. Predeceased by his brothers Paul, Jerry and Peter.
A private family service has been held. Friends are invited to a come-and-go reception in the Bay Room of the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, March 13. Donations to the Grey Bruce Regional Health Centre Foundation M.R.I. fund or to the Shriner's Hospital were what Mr. RUTHERFORD wished.

In loving memory of a dear wife, mother and grandmother Jean who left us 5 years ago, February 11, 2000.
As we go on without you
And the days have become years
They hold so many memories
And a million silent tears.
To us you were someone special
And what more is there to say
Except to wish with all our hearts
That you were here today.
Lovingly remembered by husband Bernie, children Susan, Paul, Craig, Nancy and their families.

JACKSON, Richard (December 9, 1944-February 24, 2004)
In memory of Richard JACKSON, a very special husband, dad, and grandpa.
God saw you getting tired
And lifted you to rest.
With tearful eyes we watched
God take one of His best.
Although we loved you dearly
We could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating
With us around you that day.
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you did not go alone.
For part of us went with you
The day He called you home.
Lovingly remembered by Linda, Jason, Julie, Jodi, Blair, Nikki and Autumn.

Mom,
We never expected to lose you so soon and there were so many things for us still to share. You were there when Krysta, Nicholas and Jordan were born and you watched them grow with pride and joy.
Now you will never get to see the things you always looked forward to. Krysta's "Sweet Sixteen", Nick catching more than just a "snatch" while fishing and Jordan making any of the inventions he told you about for hours on end. All we have now are the wonderful memories you left us of a beautiful, loving grandmother and a mother who lived only to give her children all the love she could. Every day of our lives you showed us love and even though our hearts are broken we still feel your love in everything we do.
We love you very much and miss you always, especially today on your birthday.
Love Tammy, John, Krysta, Nick, Jordan and family.

It was suddenly one year ago today that changed our lives forever, and the pain has not faded. Every second of every hour only makes us miss you more. If only you weren't taken from us and we could have more. More of your loving smile and never ending hugs and kisses. More of endless "I love You's". More of your little head and hand peering over the fence eagerly awaiting our arrival. More of your voice singing your favourite songs. When a mother loves her Children and Grandchildren as you did this leaves a scar on our hearts that will never heal. However Mom we would not change the pain for anything as it is a living memory of your love for us. Sadly and forever missed and always loved from Troy and Nat, Tammy and John, Terry and Gord and all your grandchildren.

Morris LIEBOVITZ, Mathematician: 1936-2004
The youngest-ever math department head at an Ontario high school, he was a baseball zealot who amassed the world's largest collection of books on the subject
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Wednesday, March 2, 2005 - Page S9
He was a math whiz who amassed the world's largest collection of books about baseball. To those who knew Morris LIEBOVITZ, he was an educator at heart who loved literature, country music, and anything to do with the U.S. Civil War and baseball.
Mr. LIEBOVITZ was born in Hamilton, Ontario, where he attended Westdale High School. There he struck up a lifelong Friendship with Russ JACKSON, a fellow numbers nut and baseball maniac. Together, they were so skilled on the diamond that they earned a tryout with a New York Yankees' farm team in the 1950s. It wasn't uncommon, as Mr. JACKSON would say, for the two Friends to skip school and watch major-league games on television, including that memorable day when Don Larsen pitched a perfect game for the New York Yankees (their favourite team when they were growing up) to defeat the Brooklyn Dodgers 2-0 in the fifth game of the 1956 World Series.
The two Friends were also mathematical geniuses, first at Westdale and then at McMaster University. "We were always in the same honours class in high school and took the same subjects," Mr. JACKSON recently recalled. "We'd come out of math exams at university and we'd check our answers and there was, maybe, one different."
After university, their paths diverged. Mr. JACKSON, a star quarterback at high school, decided to suit up for the Ottawa Rough Riders. Mr. LIEBOVITZ realized he did not want to be a lawyer after all and that his true passion was mathematics and teaching. Armed with two degrees from McMaster University in Hamilton, he got a teaching certificate and in 1961 took a job at Galt Collegiate Institute in Galt, Ontario By 24, he was head of the math department, the youngest-ever at an Ontario high school, and eventually wrote seven high-school mathematics texts.
In 1968, he changed careers, joining the Ontario government as an executive assistant to the minister of education. Over time, he served under all three major political parties, all the while helping to define the shape of education in the province. He retired in 1984 to become a business consultant.
Through all that, baseball remained a passion. In 1977, after the Blue Jays alighted in Toronto, he began buying baseball books lots and lots of them. By 1992, Mr. LIEBOVITZ had already amassed a fairly large collection when he came up with the idea of a road trip to a string of minor-league U.S. baseball towns (he was inspired by the classic baseball movie Bull Durham).
"Morris and I were at a party and I said we ought to go to the park in Durham, North Carolina," his cousin and best friend Larry GOLDHAR recalled. "So he picked me up on it and asked, 'Why don't we?' A lot of times, people say they're going to do something but they never do. Well, we did."
Eventually, with an assortment of Friends, they visited about 100 parks over a span of 14 years. It was during those trips that Mr. LIEBOVITZ's love of collecting baseball books reached its zenith. In every small town they visited, Mr. Goldhar scouted the baseball-card store while Mr. LIEBOVITZ stalked the used bookstores.
"After we had checked into the motel in each of these towns, we'd pull out the phone book and Morris would find out where the bookstore was located," Mr. GOLDHAR said. "Before we started our trips, Morris owned about 1,000 books... Sometimes he'd come back with 30 books. He was forever looking to add to his rare collection of first editions in baseball fiction." Mr. LIEBOVITZ's favourite books were all fiction: Bang the Drum Slowly, The Southpaw, Shoeless Joe and The Natural.
"Jerome Holtzman, the famous sports columnist with the Chicago Tribune, thought he had the biggest collection of baseball books but when he found out about my dad's, he was blown away," son Paul LIEBOVITZ said. "My dad collected over 3,000 titles and he had a very meticulous list of all the books."
The entire LIEBOVITZ collection is valued in excess of $300,000. While the fiction category remains in family hands, the non-fiction titles were all donated to the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Saint Marys, Ontario
"Morry's book collection is the largest donation, both in size and value, in the history of the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame," said its president, Tom VALCKE.
When the Toronto Blue Jays began play in 1977, Mr. LIEBOVITZ had another team to cheer for besides the Yankees. For years he lugged his baseball glove to Exhibition Stadium or to the SkyDome in the hope of catching a foul ball.
"I once bumped into Morry during the third period of a Leafs game," Mr. VALCKE said. "After he updated me on every one of his grandchildren, which always came first, we got talking baseball. He bled baseball. I could listen to Morry talk baseball forever."
Last summer, Mr. LIEBOVITZ finally caught a foul ball, from the bat of a Yankee, no less. "When he caught that foul ball, he might as well have won the lottery," Mr. VALCKE said.
Morris LIEBOVITZ was born January 17, 1936, in Hamilton, Ontario He died December 14, 2004, at North York General Hospital of complications from acute leukemia. He was 68. He is survived by his wife Lorraine, sons Paul and Eric, and sister Adele.

Frank CLAIR, Football Coach: 1917-2005
Ottawa Rough Riders' coach and general manager did not always remember his players' names but he knew what it took to win the Grey Cup
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to the Globe and Mail, Tuesday, April 12, 2005, Page S7
Toronto -- He was known as the absent-minded professor whose players' names sometimes beat him but Frank CLAIR was an innovative Canadian Football League institution. Once, when injury forced a halfback out of an Ottawa Rough Riders' game, coach CLAIR shouted frantically for backup Billy Kline to replace him. It was too late -- he had been traded two years before.
While general manager with the Riders, Mr. CLAIR signed a player by the name of Paul Moses and was telexing the move to the Canadian Football League's Toronto offices. Mr. CLAIR started typing Paul Abraham and coach George BRANCATO, who was beside him, noticed the error and told his boss: "No, it's Paul Moses."
"Oh," Mr. CLAIR answered, "I knew it was some guy from the Bible."
Whenever Montreal Alouettes' star running back George Dixon came to Ottawa, Mr. CLAIR referred to him not by name, but by number. "Gotta watch that No. 28," Mr. CLAIR would say. If the player was Calgary Stampeders' linebacker Wayne Harris, it was, "Have to watch that No. 55." Even after star Ottawa quarterback Russ JACKSON had won a host of awards, he was still "No. 12" to Mr. CLAIR.
"On occasion, he would call me Russ but usually he called me by my number. That was one of his idiosyncrasies. He didn't remember names," Mr. JACKSON recalled.
"Frank was so excited he didn't know what was going on in a game," said Dave THELEN, a former Rider and Toronto Argonaut fullback.
Mr. CLAIR was a pioneer in the Canadian Football League, introducing the short-trap play in 1950 and in the same year introducing films as a key method of assessing plays and personnel. He also had a habit of turning around moribund teams and winning a host of Grey Cup titles.
Wouldn't you know it -- in 1950, with the help of that short-trap play and his game movies, Mr. CLAIR's Argos won the Grey Cup. Two years later, they did it again. Mr. CLAIR also coached the Riders to three Grey Cups -- in 1960, 1968 and 1969, and was general manager when they won again in 1973 and 1976. He was Canadian Football League coach of the year in 1966 and 1969. All told, he compiled a won-lost-tied record of 174-125-7 and his teams finished out of the playoffs only twice in 19 seasons.
Mr. CLAIR was born in small-town Ohio, graduated from Ohio State University and gained some playing time with the National Football League's Washington Redskins. Along the way, in the field house connecting the football and basketball fields at Purdue University, Mr. CLAIR met his wife Pat and they married in December of 1948.
Mr. CLAIR was the head coach at the University of Buffalo in 1949 when he was persuaded to go to Toronto and coach the Argonauts. "Al Dekdebrun, who was a Toronto quarterback and an All-American at Cornell, dropped by our training camp in Buffalo and said I should come to Toronto and coach," Mr. CLAIR recalled in 1980. "I had never seen an Argos' game but I was enthused about the spirit of the football people in Toronto."
Yet, when he looked at film Clips of the Argo games in 1949, he was appalled. "They had a terrible team, a bad program and the physical conditioning was bad," Mr. CLAIR said. "Recruiting was virtually non-existent. I put more emphasis on films and got the owners to do films of every game."
The result was the short-trap play. "I think that's what won the Grey Cup for us in 1950," he once said. "Billy Bass was the fullback and time and time again, the holes would open. It was something the other teams hadn't seen."
It was a simple play and one he always enjoyed describing. "It looked like a sweep, with both guards pulling. There was a lot of quick hitting. One guard would pull to trap the tackle and our tackle would block their linebacker, clearing a hole in the line."
Mr. CLAIR left Toronto after the 1954 season and worked for a spell at the University of Cincinnati only to be lured back to the Canadian Football League to take over the head-coaching duties in Ottawa in 1956. "Ottawa had a terrible team in 1955 -- terribly disorganized," he once said. "I told the Ottawa directors that it would take five years to build a championship team. And it was five years, right on the nose, in 1960 when we won the Grey Cup."
Over the years, Mr. CLAIR witnessed scores of talented Canadian Football League players such as Dave THELEN, Ron STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, Vic WASHINGTON, Bo SCOTT, Margene ADKINS, Whit TUCKER, Moe RACINE, Mike NELMS and Tony GABRIEL, but Russ JACKSON stood out as the "best ever."
"When he [ JACKSON] moved up behind the centre, he took command," Mr. CLAIR said. "He had a good voice... he made you think he was an army sergeant. We felt like we were going somewhere with him."
Mr. JACKSON and many others contend that one of the best offences ever assembled in Canadian Football League history was the late-1960s combo in Ottawa consisting of himself, Whit TUCKER, Mr. ADKINS, Mr. WASHINGTON and Mr. SCOTT.
"I spent some 12 seasons in Ottawa, all with Frank," Mr. JACKSON said. "The biggest memory I have of my time there was that he gave me a chance to play as a Canadian. He was very innovative in his offensive preparation when we practised Monday through Friday for a game on the weekend. We used the short-trap play in games some, but we also had the option play... in those days, I liked to run a lot."
Mr. CLAIR, a genius at snagging import talent, pulled off one of the greatest coups in the Canadian game by persuading two top-flight U.S. quarterbacks -- Condredge HOLLOWAY and Tom CLEMENTS to sign with the Riders on April 23, 1975. It was coincidence that they signed on the same day. Mr. CLAIR signed Mr. CLEMENTS in Pittsburgh and Mr. BRANCATO signed Mr. HOLLOWAY in Knoxville, Tennessee.
Frank CLAIR's run with the Riders lasted 25 years, a tenure that had its tenuous moments of rough waters, especially in the last two years when ownership wanted him out as general manager.
In 1978, in one of the stormiest controversies in Canadian Football League history, Mr. CLAIR was replaced as general manager by Jake DUNLAP. To compensate, he was offered a job as vice-president and director of player personnel with a $10,000 pay increase. Even so, Mr. CLAIR saw it as a demotion and quit. All he could understand was that he was losing his general manager's job and he wasn't being told why. Football fans were on Mr. CLAIR's side throughout the drama and club owner Alan WATERS and executive vice-president Terry KIELTY were seen as villains. The Rough Riders initiated new talks and Mr. CLAIR wound up with about $50,000 a season and the job the club had offered in the first place.
However, it was not the end of the affair. Several weeks before Christmas in 1980, the Riders said they wouldn't be renewing his contract. "I was disappointed, but I signed," Mr. CLAIR said at the time. "All I wanted to do was help the club."
All the same, he did not rule out the possibility that he would move to another Canadian Football League club. Indeed, he returned to the Argos in 1981 as a scout, tapping Canadian and U.S. college talent for seven years before heart surgery meant he finally had to pack in his football career.
Ottawa remained dear to the CLAIRs and for a time they kept their home in the Billings Bridge area and spent winters in Florida. In 1993, they moved permanently to Sarasota, Florida
That same year, Ottawa named the arena at Lansdowne Park arena the Frank Clair Stadium. Sadly, it hasn't done a thing for the city's football prospects. Ottawa hasn't come close to a Grey Cup since 1976 when Mr. CLAIR led his squad to a 23-20 victory over Saskatchewan.
Frank CLAIR was born May 12, 1917 in Hamilton, Ohio. He died March 27, 2005, in Sarasota, Florida, of congestive heart failure. He is survived by his wife and by a daughter.

Domenic TROIANO, Musician: 1946-2005
He was a musician's musician who mesmerized both practitioners and audiences, writes Sandra MARTIN. A self-taught guitarist yet a perfectionist, he was a master of his own style
By Sandra MARTIN, Saturday, June 4, 2005, Page S7
Guitarist, composer, producer, Domenic TROIANO was a musician's musician. Although he played mostly in Toronto, he was widely celebrated by fans and other musicians for his skillful guitar work and a finely honed style that morphed from rock to soul to jazz-fusion. "He lived to make music. It was his life," said Larry LEBLANC, Canadian bureau chief of Billboard magazine. As another great guitarist Randy Bachman said this week: "I'm sure the heavenly jam sessions with Lenny BREAU and Jimi Hendrix are taken to a new level, now that Dom has arrived."
Domenic TROIANO was born in Italy just after the end of the Second World War and immigrated to Canada with his parents when he was 3. They settled in Toronto where his younger brother Frank and sister Gina were born. While he was still a student at East York Collegiate Institute, he taught himself to play the guitar by studying chord books, aping the sound of such rock 'n' roll icons as Chuck Berry and Elvis Presley and by watching other guitarists play. He loved rhythm and blues and used to slide into the kid's side of the Concord Tavern on Bloor Street West on Saturday afternoons to sip soft drinks and listen to Ronnie HAWKINS and visiting rockers.
By the time he was 16 he was playing in a band, Robbie Lane and the Disciples. The first song he ever wrote, The One For Me, became the B-side on the group's first single. He got his first real break two years later when Ronnie HAWKINS hired him to replace Robbie Robertson who had decamped to play with Bob Dylan. "He was raised right. His parents had that old-school morality, do everything right," said Mr. HAWKINS. "He was a quiet type. I don't think he has ever made an enemy in the world."
Asked what appealed to him about Mr. TROIANO's playing, Mr. HAWKINS said: "He was so into that guitar and music. Nothing else mattered. That came first. And guys who are like that become the great musicians."
Mr. TROIANO stayed with Mr. HAWKINS for less than a year before leaving to develop his own sound and to form a series of evolving groups including the Rogues, The Mandala (1965-69) and Bush (1970-71). He replaced Joe Walsh as the lead guitarist when he played with The James Gang from 1972-73. He toured a lot in the United States with his bands in the 1960s and '70s and released the classic hits Opportunity in 1967 and Love-itis in 1968.
Musician Randy Bachman, formerly of the Bachman Turner Overdrive, remembers Mr. TROIANO from the 1960s. "Being from Winnipeg and having the influence of [guitarist] Lenny BREAU at the beginning of my guitar career, I was interested to hear that when Lenny moved to Toronto, his influence took root there too," Mr. Bachman said in an email message this week.
"I heard about this cool guitar player who played a Tele and gigged in an R&B band called The Mandala. I got their album and Dom's guitar work was a cool mixture of funk/R&B and Lenny BREAU stuff, all in one. I saw them play several times and was mesmerized by both the band and Domenic. Then later I saw him in Bush with the same reaction. He was totally cool and really laid down some stuff."
Years later, when Mr. Bachman made his Axe album, he invited Mr. TROIANO to play on it and he "graciously" did. "We spent a few days in Chicago jamming together," Mr. Bachman said. "He was a great person with a beautiful spirit and was a true master of his own guitar style. I later loved and envied his television sound-track work. He was a great artist and will be sadly missed by many."
After Mr. Bachman left The Guess Who, Mr. TROIANO joined the group as lead guitarist in 1974. By then, the band had scored big with hits such as These Eyes and American Woman. At the time, they were coasting on their popularity and indulging themselves both on stage and off. "He brought a discipline to the group that had been missing," said Mr. LEBLANC of Billboard magazine. "He helped them clean up their image and refine their sound."
He formed The Domenic Troiano band in 1976. It lasted for three years. Later, he said that he "started to get tired of the band thing." Although Mr. TROIANO was revered by other musicians, he was also feared because he demanded such a high performance level. "He could be hard-nosed if musicians were making mistakes or there was an equipment problem," admitted Mr. LEBLANC. Still, Mr. TROIANO "embraced" and mentored musicians who satisfied his standards, no matter how young or unknown they were.
One of them was a 13-year-old kid named Alex ZIVOJINOVIC (later Alex LIFESON of Rush) who approached him at a Canada Day concert in North York in 1967. The Mandala were playing and Alex was a huge fan. "He was so innovative. His tonality was unheard of at the time." Alex went over after and asked for an autograph. "I told him I was a guitar player and I had dreams of doing what he was doing and he was very sweet and kind to me and gave me great encouragement to keep it up and keep playing," Mr. LIFESON said in a telephone interview. "I never forgot that."
Mr. TROIANO also made a number of solo albums, including The Joke's On Me and Fret Fever, played for other musicians such as Diana Ross and Joe Cocker and produced albums for singers, including his one-time wife Shawne JACKSON. He also worked as a session musician and composer of sound tracks for films and television programs such as Night Heat, Diamonds and Hot Shots. Working in television allowed him to use technology and be much more experimental with the sound he was producing.
When he first signed on to do the music for Night Heat, he thought, "this isn't the kind of thing I do," he told an interviewer, but looking back he realized that it was "the perfect job" for him. That's because he loved working in the studio. For him, composing mood music was like "finger-painting, which is something I used to love doing at school."
By the time Mr. LIFESON met up with Mr. TROIANO again at an awards show in the 1990s, he was himself a famous musician with his band Rush. The two men laughed and reminisced after Mr. LIFESON told Mr. TROIANO of their first encounter. "He's always been a fabulous guitarist, a really good songwriter and a great arranger," said Mr. LIFESON. " He's a fabulous musician -- very, very well balanced. But he's also a bright, intelligent man with a great sense of humour. Many people loved him."
About a decade ago Mr. TROIANO was diagnosed with prostate cancer. He was in reasonable health until late last year, thanks to a holistic and homeopathic regimen, according to Mr. LIFESON, who visited him in hospital earlier this year. A tribute is being planned at the national jazz awards in Toronto next month.
Domenic TROIANO was born in Modugno, Italy, on January 17, 1946. He died of prostate cancer on May 25, 2005, in Toronto. He was 59. He is survived by his former wife Shawne Jackson, his mother, a brother and a sister.

Jim ERSKINE, Ontario Provincial Police Commissioner: 1920-2005
To A.Y. JACKSON, the man who cracked the Great Canadian Art Fraud case of 1964 was always 'my inspector.' The policeman known as 'Big Jim' went on to head the Ontario Provincial Police
By Carol COOPER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Friday, June 10, 2005, Page S9
In November, 1962, Ontario Provincial Police officer Jim ERSKINE started on a new case. J. Russell HARPER, then curator of Canadian art at the National Gallery of Canada, had asked the force to investigate a flood of Canadian forgeries of the works of well-known artists, including the Group of Seven.
After a lot of dogged legwork, Mr. ERSKINE, appointed two years earlier as the Ontario Provincial Police's first head of its new anti-rackets squad, eventually cracked the case that came to be known as the Great Canadian Art Fraud.
It counts as only one highlight of Mr. ERSKINE's distinguished 38-year career with the Ontario Provincial Police. As well, he saw a hostage-taking incident successfully resolved, oversaw emergency response at the Mississauga train derailment and ended his career as the Ontario Provincial Police's commissioner.
Then premier William DAVIS appointed him commissioner, as well as head of a campaign begun in 1983 to end drinking and driving. "He was a professional police officer," Mr. DAVIS said. "It was his life. He was completely dedicated."
Mr. ERSKINE's break in the art-fraud came, according to a May, 1964, issue of Canadian Weekly, when a ruckus broke out at the Toronto art-auction house, Ward-Price. Some in attendance at a sale questioned the authenticity of Group of Seven works on offer. The scene led one purchaser of a work purportedly by Group of Seven artist J.E.H. MacDonald to take it to the Toronto Art Gallery, now the Art Gallery of Ontario, for authentication. When the purchase proved fake, the gallery informed Mr. ERSKINE, who immediately seized paintings and records from Ward-Price.
With the combined efforts of Mr. ERSKINE, artist A.J. CASSON and National Gallery conservator Dr. Nathan STOLOW, 91 paintings were confirmed as forgeries. The Ward-Price records showed that the fakes were sold on behalf of Leslie LEWIS, who operated a studio gallery at the back of Ward-Price. Mr. LEWIS had in turn obtained some of those works from another dealer, Neil SHARKEY.
Further investigation led to three painters, all of whom had created the works for other purposes and did not know their paintings were being passed off as being from more prominent artists. The two dealers pleaded guilty and were jailed.
A headline from a story about the fraud in an April, 1964, issue of Maclean's referred to Mr. ERSKINE as a "smart cop." As a result, Mr. ERSKINE came to be good Friends with some members of the Group of Seven, including A.J. CASSON, with whom he worked on the case. In addition, he was at Fred VARLEY's bedside at the artist's death and gained the confidence of A.Y. JACKSON.
Born in Guelph, Ontario, to Scottish immigrants, James Laird ERSKINE was the oldest of four children. His stonemason father worked on many buildings in and around the city, including some for the University of Guelph and the stone wall along the Niagara River.
Mr. ERSKINE obtained a Grade 10 education and, after serving underage in a field ambulance and medical corps and then an artillery reserve, joined the Royal Canadian Air Force, serving as a flight engineer on Lancaster bombers during the Second World War.
When stationed in England, Mr. ERSKINE was wounded twice, once while helping defuse bombs. One of the bombs exploded, Mr. ERSKINE blacked out and awoke to find himself among dead comrades.
Once on leave in London, he helped rescue children from a bombed school. Many students were killed or severely injured. "It took me years to get over that incident," he told the Guelph Daily Mercury in 2000. "I would wake up when I heard my own kids crying and break into a cold sweat."
Upon his return from the war in 1945, Mr. ERSKINE joined the Ontario Provincial Police. As well as solving the Great Canadian Art Fraud, he negotiated the release of four children being held hostage near London, Ontario, by an armed, escaped convict, Donald CLINE.
The con demanded cash but, according to one of Mr. ERSKINE's sons, Bruce, the incident took place on the weekend during a time with limited banking hours and no automated teller machines. To get the cash, Mr. ERSKINE borrowed it from a local businessman. After collecting it, the then-deputy commissioner and a colleague sat in the back of a cruiser and wrote down the serial numbers of each bill so they could be traced later.
During the incident, the hostage-taker held one of the children to the window, threatening to kill him. A gunshot sounded, the window shattered and the child fell. "My father said he felt sick to his stomach because he thought the child had died," the younger Mr. ERSKINE said.
In fact, the gunman had shot out the window above the child's head and simultaneously dropped the child.
Before handing over any money, Mr. ERSKINE insisted that three children be released. Once he received his booty, Mr. CLINE released the fourth and oldest child before taking off. He was later arrested.
At one point, tiring of the constant media swarm during the lengthy standoff, Mr. ERSKINE sent another officer out for coffee, instructing him to go in a marked cruiser with lights flashing, sirens screaming and tires screeching. The press fell for it and followed like bees to honey.
At 6 feet 5, Mr. ERSKINE was commonly known as "Big Jim." He also happened to look a lot like Errol Flynn. Once, in Los Angeles to bring an extradited man back home, he found himself constantly approached by curious women on the lookout for movie stars.
In November of 1979, 17 years after beginning on the art-fraud case, Mr. ERSKINE once again played an important part in a major Canadian event. A freight train carrying volatile materials including propane, chlorine and caustic soda left the tracks in Mississauga. Some of its chemical contents exploded and caught fire, releasing flames and vapours into the air early on a Sunday morning.
Fearing for the safety of the city's residents, officials ordered approximately 218,000 people from their homes in the largest peacetime evacuation in North American history. It lasted close to a week.
As director of emergency response, Mr. ERSKINE worked closely with Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCALLION during the disaster. That closeness became literal. The mayor had sprained her ankle and could not walk well, so Mr. ERSKINE picked her up and carried her to one of their daily press conferences.
Throughout his career, Mr. ERSKINE took on several leadership roles, including president of the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police in 1976. Appointed a deputy commissioner of the Ontario Provincial Police in 1975, he became commissioner in 1981. He retired in 1983.
As well as heading the drinking-driving campaign, Mr. ERSKINE was for 10 years the honorary colonel of the 11th Field Artillery Regiment.
With his death, the man who solved so many mysteries may have left one behind.
According to his son Bruce, Group of Seven artist A.Y. JACKSON always called Mr. ERSKINE "my inspector." Once, when the younger Mr. ERSKINE visited Mr. JACKSON, the artist confided that he knew the truth about the mysterious 1917 death of artist Tom THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and the only person he had ever told was "my inspector." When asked about it, Big Jim ERSKINE denied knowing anything.
James Laird ERSKINE was born on September 8, 1920, in Guelph, Ontario He died on May 22, 2005, in Mississauga. He was 84. He leaves his wife Jeanette, sons Bruce, Rick and Barry, and one sister. His oldest son Daniel died last fall.

COMFORT, Charles Fraser, 1994 -- Died This Day
Wednesday, July 6, 2005, Page S7
Artist born on July 22, 1900, in Edinburgh.
After immigrating with his family to Winnipeg, he went to school there and studied art. As a young man, he went to New York and to Holland for further studies and then returned home to work as a designer in Toronto. As part of the generation that followed the Group of Seven, he was one of the founding members of the Canadian Group of Painters. A friend of A.Y. JACKSON and Lawren HARRIS, he was heir to the contemporary styles that the group had introduced to Canada, continuing their bold handling of paint and choice of colour. He was best known for his brooding landscapes, farm scenes and portraits executed during the Depression. His most famous work is Young Canadian, a dark 1932 portrait of fellow painter Carl SCHAEFER set against a rural landscape. Today, it is part of the University of Toronto collection. He also designed several public murals, including the frieze on the facade of the old Toronto Stock Exchange building and a mural on the trading floor. He was a director of the National Gallery of Canada from 1960 to 1965 and made an officer of the Order of Canada in 1972.

He was an avid outdoorsman who spent many relaxing hours fishing, hunting, and observing the birds in his garden. As a Charter Member of the Islington Sportsman Club, Bill was proud to serve as the Club's former president. Family and Friends will sadly miss his intellect, honesty, humour, and creativity.

TROIANO master of 'Toronto Sound'
Legendary guitarist, band leader is missed
Friends remember innovative spirit, business acumen
By Greg QUILL, Entertainment Columnist
The jaunty beret, capricious moustache, warm smile, bright eyes and inquiring brow are the features his family, Friends and admirers are remembering today as legendary Toronto guitarist, band leader, composer and music producer Domenic "Donnie" TROIANO is laid to rest in North York, following a funeral mass near his longtime home in Thornhill.
One of Canada's most influential and innovative rock musicians during the 1960s and '70s, and a revered session player, record producer, television and movie score composer and jazz recording artist in the following decades, TROIANO succumbed last Wednesday night to a 10-year struggle with prostate cancer. He was 59.
Born in Modugno, Italy, TROIANO and his family came to Toronto in 1949. A little more than a decade later, he was immersed in the city's burgeoning rock and R&B music culture, and, along with other budding guitar slingers, used to study The Hawks' Robbie Robertson at Concord Tavern Saturday matinees. By age 17 he had taught himself to play from chord books and by studying the work of his musical heroes.
While he defined what contemporaries call "The Toronto Sound" during stints with Robbie LANE and The Disciples, Ronnie Hawkins, The Five Rogues, Mandala, and Bush -- bands in which he became known as "the guitarist to beat" in Toronto in the years following Robertson's long ascendancy -- and carried the hopes of a generation of Canadian guitar slingers to the world as Joe Walsh's replacement in the American band The James Gang, and as Randy Bachman's in The Guess Who, TROIANO remained a polite and even humble presence in the industry, a musician's musician who eschewed the trappings of fame and excess.
"Donnie was the last person ever to talk about his achievements," says LANE, one of the guitarist's closest Friends from the age of 14, even before he and TROIANO formed The Disciples, the band that a few years later would replace Robertson and The Hawks as Arkansas rockabilly singer Hawkins' posse.
LANE, who is still performing "for fun" and hosts a radio show Saturday and Sunday afternoons in 1050 CHUM, paid tribute to his longtime friend on the weekend with a special segment featuring many of his recordings and the on-air memories of his musical contemporaries, including former wife, singer Shawne JACKSON.
"Donnie was two things -- a giant musician and producer, and a giant human being who really cared about people."
George Olliver, singer and frontman for the bands (Whitey And The Roulettes, The Rogues) that would become Mandala following TROIANO's split with the Disciples, was one of the guitarist's last visitors a week ago.
"He knew I was there, but it was impossible for him to speak but he managed a smile. I remember when I first saw him play in 1962 at Le Coq D'Or with Ronnie Hawkins on Yonge St. It was very soulful music, straight from the heart. It was mind-boggling to have him join our band just two weeks later. And from the minute he came in, he was the leader.
"He knew exactly what he wanted, and he had great ideas. He was headstrong in those days, very focused, and what he wanted always turned out to be the best thing for the band."
Three years later, Olliver and TROIANO parted ways, and though the guitarist went on to form the groundbreaking jazz-influenced rock trio Bush with Toronto bassist Prakash JOHN and drummer Whitey Glan, his reputation had already spread south via Mandala's recordings with the prestigious American R&B label KR Chess and tours of the U.S.
The band's first single, "Opportunity," is still credited by local musicians as the cut that took the Toronto Sound -- distinguished by a "heavily distorted, sustained vibrato guitar, a very dangerous noise," says veteran Toronto bassist Dennis PINHORN -- to Los Angeles and beyond. In 1968 Mandala (with singer Roy Kenner, who had replaced Olliver and would later join The James Gang with TROIANO,) recorded its only album, Soul Crusade, for Atlantic Records.
"Donnie was more than a great musician, he was also a great businessman," Olliver continues. "He was always reading up on production news, the latest trends in recording and management deals, and he was able to parlay that knowledge into a lucrative career as a songwriter, and an award-winning music score composer and producer for television shows (including Night Heat) and movies. One of the songs he wrote for Bush, 'I Can Hear You Calling,' was recorded by Three Dog Night as the B-side of the multi-platinum hit 'Joy To The World.' He made a fortune."
Olliver and TROIANO collaborated recently on remixing the reissue of Live at the Bluenote with George Olliver and Gangbuster, the classic 1980s recording of Toronto's legendary soul/R&B band.
To Ronnie Hawkins, who recently recovered from a bout with cancer, TROIANO was "a member of an endangered species, one of them semi-geniuses who live for their music yet remain polite and human and real. Donnie was a good ol' buddy... he was always there for you."
In TROIANO's memory the Metronome Canada Culture Heritage Foundation has established a $1,500 annual scholarship to a Canadian guitarist pursuing post secondary guitar education. Details at 416-367-0162, or http: //www.metronomecanada.com.

Friends mourn slain teenager
By Scott ROBERTS and Ashley JOANNOU, Staff Reporters
Six roses, a red bandana and a copy of the New Testament lay on a sidewalk behind an Etobicoke apartment complex last night a memorial for 17-year-old Matthew George WILMOT.
A gym beside the apartment where the teen played basketball was used as a canvas for one last message from WILMOT's Friends: "R.I.P. DIzzy."
WILMOT, known to his Friends as DIzzy, was gunned down Wednesday afternoon outside the entrance of an apartment on Islington Ave. just south of Finch Ave. W., at about 2 p.m.
His death was one of three shootings this week; Toronto police have made an arrest in the shooting of a 12-year-old boy and are still searching for suspects in the other attacks.
WILMOT died after being taken to Sunnybrook hospital; an autopsy yesterday revealed the cause to be gunshot wounds to the chest.
The afternoon shooting took place just steps away from a playground where children looked on.
witnesses: reported seeing a black sport utility vehicle, possibly a Lincoln Navigator or a Ford Explorer, speeding away after the shooting. No arrests have been made.
Friends of WILMOT described him as quiet and athletic. They were shocked he would be the target of an attack that police described as brazen.
"He was just a good guy," said Shawn CETTINO, a close friend. "He was a smart kid, too. He would never disrespect anyone."
WILMOT was known to police but officers wouldn't elaborate.
Meanwhhile, Bernard BOACHIE, 18, of Toronto faces eight charges, including attempted murder and aggravated assault, in the shooting of a 12-year-old boy on Monday.
Police believe BOACHIE knew the boy.
The victim was taken to the Hospital for Sick Children by cab after being shot in the shoulder in an apartment building on Tobermory Dr., near Jane and Finch Aves.
Two days later, WILMOT became the city's 31st homicide victim of the year.
Police are also appealing for witnesses: to a second shooting Wednesday, just west of Spadina Ave. between Dundas and Queen Sts.
Kortez JACKSON, a father of four, was shot three times when he opened the door to a townhouse in Atkinson Co-op at about 11 a.m. JACKSON, 32, is in critical condition in hospital.
In another case, police arrested a man in Ottawa yesterday, alleging he had broken the conditions of his release from jail.
Bhupinder Singh SAHOTA, 45, was on conditional release from the Toronto East Detention Centre after being charged with possession of stolen credit cards. He is being brought to Toronto by Ottawa police and will face a variety of charges.

Beach's 'guardian angel' difficult, beloved
Street person would have lineup waiting to talk
Customers took care of the scrappy Steve Whale
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
For years he was there, outside the Beach ValuMart on Queen St. E., perched on a canvas stool someone had given him, wrapped in multiple layers of donated clothing and hand-knit scarves no matter what the weather, the copies of the Outreach newspaper he was selling carefully encased in plastic, the coins from his sales filling up a battered coffee cup.
"God bless," he'd say if you stopped to say hello, even if you didn't buy a paper.
And though this was the Beach, putatively an epicentre of smug yuppiedom, and even though he was a street person, a recovering alcoholic and binge crack user, Steve WHALE belonged there and was beloved there. There was always somebody talking to him heck, sometimes there was a lineup to talk to him.
"I considered him my brother; we would talk about everything," said Michael SOMERS, an insurance broker. "I'd sit for hours with him, me cross-legged on the sidewalk, like a little kid."
Still, one or two people complained to the grocery store management during the six or seven years WHALE was outside the store most afternoons and early evenings.
"Some people felt Steve was sitting there begging, which he really wasn't," said Elaine ROBERTS, the front-end store manager.
He used to carry home the groceries of an elderly blind woman he was always good for a quarter for the pay phone.
"You don't have to do that," he'd say to bicyclists about to lock their bikes to a post. "I'll watch 'em for you."
And then there were the dogs. He loved them, knew them all by name, and took care of them when their owners ducked into the store.
He was a quirky guy: a diabetic who liked his coffee with 14 packets of sweetener, a big hockey fan who almost swooned the day one of his customers gave him a signed Maple Leaf sweater and two tickets to a game.
He made sure everyone knew he worked a full day, selling the street newspaper at Yonge and Charles Sts. most mornings, often visiting Sanctuary, a drop-in for street people and the homeless, before taking the streetcar almost to the end of the Queen St. line.
And he made sure people were up to date on the declining state of his health; he had throat cancer, though there was never any point in lecturing him about his chain-smoking. He was living in the New Edwin Hotel -- and his Beach Friends learned not to get him going on what he thought about shelters or men's hostels, or the Mike Harris government, for that matter -- but when he was hospitalized four years ago with a serious bout of pneumonia, he lost his chance at government housing.
Back at his post, still coughing, still smoking, he would tell anyone who asked what had happened. He wasn't complaining, but a couple of Beach residents who understood how social services worked lobbied on his behalf and got WHALE a subsidized bachelor apartment in a handsome development almost kitty-corner from where he worked.
WHALE was overjoyed. "I've got my own bathroom and kitchen," he would say. Soon he had so many pots, pans, appliances and furnishings from his Beach Friends, he had to beg people to stop giving him things. He slept on a pile of blankets on the floor, because he wanted to.
Some of his customers used to take him to the movies at the local Fox Cinema. Others made a point of doing the annual Beaches Jazz Festival with him.
About three years ago, WHALE needed radiation treatment. Every day for five weeks, retired educators and Beach neighbours Doug VAN HAMME and Ken LAUDER drove him down to Princess Margaret Hospital where they waited with him, and then drove him back to the Beach again. LAUDER's 92-year-old mother knit WHALE a scarf and toque every year, and LAUDER often delivered WHALE home-cooked meals.
"He was a difficult guy, but every story he told about his life all ended with him acknowledging his fault and his mistakes, which all had to do with drinking and drugs," LAUDER said. "It was never anybody else's fault. How could you not like and respect someone like that?"
WHALE told LAUDER he grew up in the east end of Toronto, the son of a butcher who never made it through Grade 8 because he played hooky from school. He had a lot of jobs: he might have been a postman and he might have once worked at the former Greenwood racetrack. He told LAUDER his favourite job was driving a truck up to northern Ontario. He was a scrapper, the kind of guy who never walked away from a fight, and he got fired a lot.
He told some he was alone in the world; to others, he admitted he had a family. LAUDER discovered WHALE's son and namesake when he once accidentally called the wrong hotel looking for Steve WHALE.
When his cancer returned in 2003, WHALE moved back to the New Edwin. "He said the people there knew him and would take care of him," LAUDER recalled.
He cussed more than one nurse right out of his room, said Jim PAPADACOS, the owner and operator of the New Edwin. But PAPADACOS and his staff were protective of WHALE, as LAUDER and VAN HAMME discovered one day when they tried to visit him. "Three very big, very tough guys blocked us until we convinced them we were his Friends," VAN HAMME said.
WHALE's tongue had thickened and he was having trouble speaking, though he kept coming out to his spot on the sidewalk on some of the coldest and cruellest days this past winter. But in early April, he was rushed from the New Edwin Hotel to Mount Sinai Hospital.
"He refused St. Mike's Hospital -- that was typical Steve," LAUDER said with a laugh.
The last time he and VAN HAMME saw WHALE, he was excited about the impending visit of his long-estranged son. He said he wouldn't speak to him whenever they bumped into each other at the Good Shepherd Refuge.
WHALE died soon afterward. LAUDER doesn't know the exact date because none of WHALE's Friends from the Beach qualify as family and therefore they can't access that information. Nor does anyone know where WHALE is buried, though the city buries unclaimed bodies in unmarked graves in cemeteries throughout the city. No one is even sure how old he was; some think 56, others 64.
On the last day of spring, people gathered outside the ValuMart for a memorial service. The store donated 50 long-stemmed snapdragons to give to the participants, but there weren't nearly enough. The passing streetcars slowed and people stared at the growing circle of families, dogs, cyclists and shoppers around the spot where WHALE always sat.
Amanda JACKSON had tears running down her face remembering the man with whom she traded paperbacks and who helped her cope when a member of her own family was battling drugs. He was the first person she told when she decided to leave her marriage.
"All he said was 'Are you happy?'" she recalled. "He made me think of a little angel in the Beach. A guardian angel."
But it was Greg PAUL from Sanctuary who reconciled this Steve WHALE with the querulous shut-in who gambled on the ponies and could never completely kick his crack habit.
"Steve told me when he moved out to the Beach, he had found a community," he said. "He died knowing he was embraced by this community."
