Rev. Martin DAWSON's message entitled "Leading a Life That God Would Like", described Marion as having qualities exemplifying those of a "Saint".
A piper from the Mississauga Fire Brigade lead the procession out of the church with a beautiful rendition of "Amazing Grace." Interment was in Greenfield Cemetery in Arthur.

A Tribute To Marion
(written by one of Marion's special Friends)
Such a special friend is so hard to find, and we were so blessed to call you "mine".
You cherished your family with love and pride, and graciously took each day in stride.
Together with Bruce you shared a wonderful life, you each chose so well for a husband and wife.
Your children you cherished, your precious grandchildren as well, with each new arrival your heart would swell.
Your gardens, your flowers you tended with care, your gifts and your talents you would unselfishly share.
Your quiet little chuckle, your beautiful brown eyes, your welcoming home, your meals and your pies.
As a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a grandma, an aunt, a niece or a friend, you loved each and everyone right to the end.
In cards we were told we didn't play our hands, so we laughed and we chuckled and tried a new plan.
But trying to play like the men soon went amuck, because they really never had a plan.. just plain old luck.
A campfire, a New Years eve party, a visit... whatever, we always had such a great time together
We will cherish always these wonderful things, especially now that you've been given your angel wings.
We know not what the Lord has in His plan, so we will carry on bravely and try to understand.
Your journey has been such an incredible one, but far too soon, that journey was done.
Your reward in Heaven will be great I know, for your faith and your courage you would always show.
Some days like these in life it seems the pleasures are few, but we only have to recall what a pleasure it was to have a friend like you!

STAFFORD fought for the little guy
By Eric BUNNELL, Special to The Free Press
Saint Thomas -- Harold STAFFORD was remembered yesterday as a passionate advocate for the little guy, a benefactor who hid behind bluster, and a politician whose strong principals may have cost him a seat at the cabinet table. STAFFORD, a colourful and often controversial former Saint Thomas lawyer, died yesterday at his home at 83.
His was a life that his friend Bill JOHNSON, a fellow lawyer and Liberal, said yesterday may be impossible to sum up.
"He was such an intrinsically unique character that there are no parallels. There was only one mould and I think they broke it when they made Harold," he said.
"He would have been 84 on April 20. But Harold was like the Mississippi. You just expected him to continue to roll on."
Tributes yesterday came from as far away as Florida, including fellow former member of Parliament Eugene WHELAN, a prominent former agriculture minister.
"He served his country in many ways. Some people disagreed with him but to those of us who knew him, he was a darn good Canadian."
A native of New Brunswick, STAFFORD was introduced to Saint Thomas and his future wife, Betty during the Second World War. He came to the city as an air force sergeant who taught Commonwealth air crew.
Educated at the University of New Brunswick and the London School of Economics, STAFFORD was called to the bar in 1953 in Brantford and opened a Saint Thomas practice in 1955.
JOHNSON was a political science student studying Liberal fortunes in Elgin when he joined a candidate search in the riding and met STAFFORD, whom he subsequently recommended to the party.
JOHNSON, who later articled under STAFFORD, said there were two sides to the man -- gruff in public, but huge-hearted in private.
"He was a guy with a heart as big as the world. No one knows the good works he did, because of his bluff, curmudgeonly behaviour," he said.
He recalled STAFFORD once defended a 12-year-old boy hauled before the court on a charge of stealing a bicycle.
"His parents were as poor as church mice and this kid didn't have much chance of having anything. Harold not only defended the young man, but he went and bought him a bike."
JOHNSON said STAFFORD "had very strong principles and he would not vary from them."
STAFFORD's dislike of Pierre TRUDEAU was no secret, yet when the former Liberal prime minister died, STAFFORD was gracious in his tribute.
Driven to defend his clients, STAFFORD's principles also may have cost him his law practice.
He was forced in 2000 to resign from the bar as a condition of the Crown withdrawing a charge of obstruction of justice, arising from an allegation STAFFORD tried to influence a witness.
The allegation was never proved and STAFFORD continued to work as a paralegal.
After two failed bids, STAFFORD was elected Elgin member of Parliament in 1965 under then prime minister Lester PEARSON.
He retired from active politics following his 1972 defeat by Tory John WISE but maintained his interest in politics.
STAFFORD's hours and his late-night phone calls were the stuff of local legend.
JOHNSON recalled one judge giving weight to a client's alibi when the man testified he was in STAFFORD's office at 1 a.m.
WHELAN also remembered STAFFORD's ability to work long hours, as did former city lawyer Marietta ROBERTS, a former member of provincial parliament and now a judge.
"Harold had a brilliant mind and he was a very bright man," WHELAN said. "He'd stay up and work until two o'clock in the morning on cases or the work he had to do for Parliament. He had the stamina of four or five people."
Said Roberts of STAFFORD: "He lived life to the fullest and he gave his time and energy to the community for a number of years."
"Mind you," she added, "it might be 3 a.m."
Visitation hours for STAFFORD at Williams Funeral Home in St. Thomas are tomorrow from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The funeral service is Friday at Knox Presbyterian Church at 1 p.m.

Mervin HANDLEY -- April 5, 1998
Olive HANDLEY -- November 28, 2001
To a pair of Great Parents and Grandparents.
Your grave may not be covered with flowers,
Like some that surround yours,
We may not come to visit much, because it is still very hard,
To stand at a patch of grass and imagine you are there,
To chat with you and cry with you and wish you were still here.
So please look down with pride at the adults we have become.
Because you are the ones who instilled honesty, trust and love.
We love and miss you both so much and take comfort in the fact we have two of the greatest angels watching over us.

Stanley MANSBRIDGE, Civil Servant: 1919-2005
Royal Air Force navigator decorated for his part in a critical bombing raid on a Nazi missile site later settled in Canada to become an influential civil servant in Ottawa and Alberta
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, April 16, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- The Flying Log Book of Wing Commander Stanley Mansbridge reads like a shorthand history of the air war over Europe. The log books were kept by every pilot and navigator, some more thorough than others. The blue-covered book was meticulously maintained, filled with detail, and demonstrated the kind of commitment to good organization that later propelled him to the heights of Canada's civil service.
Starting as a novice navigator, he recorded his flights in such smaller two-engine aircraft as Ansons, Fairey Battles and Blenheims before graduating to heavier machines, Hampdens, Wellingtons and finally the four-engine Lancaster. The bombing runs and flights over enemy territory -- operations -- are written in red ink, the training and transport flights in blue.
Each entry in the logbook occupies just one line, maybe two for a big mission. It gives the date, type of aircraft, name of the pilot, the "duty" or job Stanley MANSBRIDGE was doing, and a description of the mission.
The operation on the night of August 17, 1943, is one of the raids that merits two lines, naming the target and the size and number of bombs dropped by the Lancaster. The entry reads, "Peenemunde- 8 x 1000 G.P. 5 X 500 M.C.; Very Successful -- Large Fires."
The target was 1,000 kilometres from bomber bases in Britain and the flight took six and half hours there and back. His squadron was in the third wave, so the German defenders, fooled earlier by a phony raid on Berlin, were ready. Of the 12 aircraft in his squadron, only eight returned. The target was protected by a thicket of anti-aircraft fire from the ground and German night fighters in the air. Peenemunde was the secret location where Nazi scientists built the V-1 flying bomb (the world's first cruise missile) and the V-2 (the world's first ballistic missile).
The raid destroyed the rocket factory and killed many scientists, including Dr. Walter Thiel, the designer of the rocket engines. Flight Lieutenant MANSBRIDGE, as he was at the time, knew the raid was important, but didn't know it was one of the key air attacks of the war.
"Peenemunde one of the two raids by the Royal Air Force that changed the course of the war," says Steve HARRIS, director of History at the Department of National Defence in Ottawa. "It slowed the development of the V-1 and V-2 by at least two months. Had the V-2 been ready on time, the Allies might not have been able to hold the beaches in Normandy."
The war in Europe might have continued for years without the invasion of Normandy in June of 1944. The first V-1's, known as doodlebugs, were launched against Britain on June 13, 1944, a week after the D-Day invasion. Many were shot down. It wasn't until September of 1944 that the more deadly V-2's were launched. They carried a 975 kilogram warhead and their supersonic speed meant they were impossible to shoot down.
"It seems likely that if the Germans had succeeded in perfecting and using these new weapons earlier than he did, our invasion of Europe would have proved exceedingly difficult, perhaps impossible," wrote General Dwight Eisenhower, Supreme allied Commander in Europe.
Stanley MANSBRIDGE flew with the Royal Air Force. He had been born in a Canadian military hospital in England in 1918, son of a Canadian father and a British mother. His father, Harry, served with the Princess Patricia Canadian Light Infantry during the First World War and, among other battles, fought at Vimy Ridge.
After the war, the family lived in Toronto for a few years but his mother longed for home and they all moved back. Stanley grew up in the London suburb of Richmond, where he became an accomplished cricket player. He passed the British equivalent of high school and then went to work for Lloyd's Bank. There, he took banking courses that helped with his later career.
In 1939, he joined the Royal Air Force which happily latched on to his gift for numbers and detail and made him a navigator. The Royal Air Force was not disappointed. His unerring ability to find his way to the target and back in all conditions earned him the role of senior navigator in his squadron, a job that held heart-stopping responsibilities. Essentially, the navigator was the heart and mind of each bomber and was all but in command. The crew relied on the pilot's flying skills to get them off the ground, over the target and returned to earth in one piece yet knew in their bones that it was the navigator who gave him his instructions. Only the navigator understood the mysterious art of how to find their way in the dark to a hostile target and then return them safely home. In the case of Stan MANSBRIDGE, he was also accountable for an entire squadron that on any one mission mustered as many as 25 aircraft, each with its own navigator and each of whom was under his supervision.
His total time in combat involved two tours of duty, which meant 50 "operation" flights over enemy territory, including a 1941 mine-laying mission in the North Sea that disabled the German battle cruiser Gneisenau (with its sister ship, it had sunk 22 merchant vessels). Altogether, he made 340 flights during the war. Perhaps the most unusual was to deliver 600 pounds of Royal Mail to Gibraltar in a Lancaster bomber.
Some of his major missions included the raid on Hamburg that set the city afire and a long-distance raid on the Skoda munitions works in Czechoslovakia. A night mission against a German radar factory surprised the Germans by carrying on to bases in North Africa rather than turning for home and into the gun sights of waiting nightfighters.
The raid on Peenemunde was Mr. MANSBRIDGE's last operation and soon after he was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross. He then went to the Royal Air Force staff college and it was during that period he married his sweetheart Brenda. Unlike other wartime flyers who rushed into marriage, he had put off the wedding because he had seen so many of his Friends leave young widows after failing to come back from a raid. Ever the careful organizer, he decided to wait until after his second and final "tour."
From staff college, he was assigned to Bomber Command headquarters in High Wycombe outside London where he worked under Air Marshal Arthur "Bomber" Harris, the tactician and father of the "1,000-bomber raid" who, after the Battle of Britain, became the force to be reckoned with in Royal Air Force strategy. Fittingly, as a newly minted member of headquarters "brass," Mr. MANSBRIDGE was promoted to wing commander, which is the air force equivalent of a lieutenant-colonel.
After the war, he turned down a permanent commission in the Royal Air Force and went to work for the British civil service. His specialty was organization. From 1950 to 54, he and his young family lived in the Federated Malay States where Mr. MANSBRIDGE worked to set up the civil service for the soon-to-be-independent country of Malaysia. It was a time of professional rewards at work and personal satisfaction at home. With young children under foot, his large Kuala Lumpur home was made busy by the hubbub of family life. By then his two older children had been born Wendy, who would take up nursing, and Peter, who would grow up to become one of Canada's best known broadcasters.
While in Kuala Lumpur, Mr. MANSBRIDGE played for the state cricket team and won colours for his contribution as a fast bowler. It was from there that he decided to move to Canada, a country he hadn't visited since he was a boy.
The family moved to Ottawa where they put down new roots and welcomed the addition of a third child, Paul, who is now a supermarket executive. Mr. MANSBRIDGE soon made himself valuable to the federal government as a kind of trouble shooter for the Civil Service Commission, moving from one department to the other when they needed re-organization. "He was an expert in finding out what was wrong in government departments and making them more efficient in what they do, whether it was Malaya or in Ottawa," said Peter MANSBRIDGE, who before he joined the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation had been inspired to train as a Royal Canadian Navy pilot.
By 1960, Stanley MANSBRIDGE was deputy chief of organization and methods for the Civil Services Commission and was made its chief in 1964. In 1971, he joined the department of Health and Welfare where he was assistant deputy minister under Marc LALONDE.
Al JOHNSON, one of the most powerful mandarins in Ottawa during the 1960's and 1970's appreciated Mr. MANSBRIDGE's organizational skills. "He was assistant deputy minister of administration at National Welfare," remembered Mr. JOHNSON, who was the deputy minister and who is now retired in Ottawa. "Stanley was our financial watchdog. It's not a job that always makes you popular, but he was well liked since he was such an amiable person."
In 1976, he went to Edmonton for a meeting with Peter Lougheed. Mr. MANSBRIDGE later recalled that the Alberta premier insisted on one-on-one interviews with any senior people he hired. He passed muster and became the province's chief deputy minister of Social Services and Community Health, a job he kept until "The Province of Alberta was very fortunate to have Mr. MANSBRIDGE play a senior role with the Government of Alberta during the time I was premier," Mr. Lougheed said last week from his office in Calgary.
It was a period of intense debate between the federal and provincial governments over matters of health and welfare. Mr. MANSBRIDGE wrote many papers on these issues, some of which appeared in the Canadian Journal of Public Administration.
After leaving his job in Edmonton, Mr. MANSBRIDGE moved to Victoria where he taught public administration at the University of Victoria. Several years ago, he moved to London, Ontario, to be closer to his family.
Stanley Harry MANSBRIDGE was born on May 29, 1918, in Folkestone, England. He died in London, Ontario, on March 27, 2005. He is leaves his wife Brenda and by his children, Wendy, Peter and Paul.

CREELMAN, Kenneth Munroe
Kenneth Munroe CREELMAN of Truro, Nova Scotia, died Wednesday, April 27, 2005 in the comfort of his home with his family by his side. He was 80.
He was born on June 30, 1924 to parents Jesse (JOHNSON) and Hedley CREELMAN. On October 18, 1948 he married Muriel J. DAVIS of Five Islands in Truro, Nova Scotia, and they became the proud parents of three sons and one daughter.
Kenneth lived most of his life in the house where his eight siblings were born on the Creelman farm at Otterbrook, Colchester County. Kenneth was the only one born in Truro Hospital. The story goes that his father Hedley picked him out of the babies in the nursery by the distinctive sound of his cry.
Hard work and long hours in the logging and lumber business defined Kenneth's work life spanning 67 years. Kenneth started driving a yard horse in Smith Field in the winter of 1937, when he was 13 years old. Decades later he was still building the business, always passionate about his life's work. His last day in the office was just a few days ago.
He was President of the Marwood group of companies. Kenneth enjoyed his work, enjoyed the Friendship of Marwood employees, and took great pride in ensuring Marwood provided top quality products and customer service. Kenneth enjoyed seeing people grow and succeed in his work life.
During his long career, Kenneth worked with his father, his brothers, and his sons. Along with being dedicated to the best interests of his business and his employees, he was, above all else, dedicated to caring for the needs of his family.
Kenneth had two families -- his own family and his corporate family; he loved and enjoyed the company of both. He was the leader who his families looked up to right through to the last days of his life. He was always there as a teacher and as an advisor for both. He was dedicated to the well being of the members of each of his families. Although soft spoken, with gentle humour, he provided clear direction and guidance. He set the example with a strong work ethic. He was a leader and a teacher to so many for so long; his attentive, caring hand and his guidance will be greatly missed.
Kenneth was associated with horses all his life -- first work horses in woodland operations and in more recent years, the champion Cape Cod Percherons in the show ring. Not one for hobbies, he did enjoy horse racing and horse shows as long as they did not interfere too much with work. Kenneth was a 50 year plus member of the Grand Lodge of Nova Scotia Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons
He is predeceased by his parents and brothers Walter and Donald of Truro. Among the survivors are his wife, Muriel of Truro, and his four children: K. Ross (Carrie) of Fredericton, Barbara L. of Falmouth, Nova Scotia, Douglas (Karen) of Fall River, Nova Scotia and Michael A. (Stephanie) Fredericton; his sisters, Helen A. LAWLOR and Mary E. CREELMAN of London, Ontario, S. Gladys (Alan) WORKMAN of Vancouver, his brothers, H. Gordon (Joan) of Truro, Warren R. (Helen) of Fredericton, Alan E. (Joanne) of Dartmouth; his sister in laws, Debra J. CREELMAN (Walter) and Mrs. Beryl SUTTON; his grandchildren: Sarah and Daniel CREELMAN (Douglas and Karen,) Andrea, Katherine, and Austin CREELMAN (Michael) and step grandchildren Jansen and Travis WHITE/WHYTE (Ross and Carrie.)

JOHNSON, Edward, 1959 -- Died This Day
Saturday, April 30, 2005, Page S9
Opera singer born on August 22, 1878, in Guelph, Ontario
His first introduction to public performance occurred as a choirboy in Guelph, a community which even then was intensely proud of its music endeavours. At about 20, he moved to New York to study music and found work singing at music festivals. Eventually, his naturally beautiful voice landed him on the New York stage and on a tour of concert halls. In Europe, he married the daughter of a Portuguese viscount, and performed under the name Eduardo DI_GIOVANNI in Italian opera houses from 1912 to 1919. The next year, he was hired by the Chicago Opera Company, and then by the Metropolitan in New York, where he sang leading operatic roles. In 1935, he became general manager, a job he held until 1950 when was succeeded by Rudolf BING. He retired to Guelph and helped establish the Edward Johnson Music Foundation, which today sponsors the Guelph Spring Festival.

Having recently entered his 89th year, surrounded by his loving wife Betty and their family, passed peacefully into the presence of God at Uxbridge on Wednesday, July 27, 2005. Born July 19, 1917 in Toronto, Claude was the cherished son of the late Arthur Claude and Ada May SHOBROOK. Deeply missed by his adored and adoring wife of more than 63 years, Betty Graham McNEILL and their seven children and their spouses, 26 grandchildren and their spouses, and 7 great-grandchildren: Ruth SIMMONDS and her children Louise KORHONEN and Chris HAZLETON, and Danielle; Shelagh and Leigh POPOV and Chloe and Sophie; Wesley KORHONEN and Laura KORHONEN.

Bruce and Tamara SIMMONDS and Benjamin, Joshua, Daniel and James. Paul and Laurie SIMMONDS and William. Lois WEAVER and and her children Rachel and Jessica. Predeceased by brothers Herbert A. and David S. Loving brother of sisters Gladys SMITH and Arthur, Dorothy and William EBERLIN, Mary STURGESS and Reverend Dr. William, Madeline SIMMONDS and sister-in-law Barbara SIMMONDS (Mrs. David S.). Predeceased by beloved parents-in-law John Herbert and Cassie McNEILL. Lovingly remembered brother-in-law of Reverend W. Arnold and Helen McNEILL, Alan and Marion McNEILL, Margaret and Rev. Morry WOROZBYT and Ruth H. McNEILL. Fondly remembered by Aunt Bertha TORRANS. Special 'Uncle Claude' to many nieces, nephews and their spouses and families, and to generations of Sunday School students at Immanuel Baptist and Glen Major churches. Special friend and mentor to scores of long-time Friends at Immanuel and Glen Major. Dad lived a full life of accomplishment and service in the name of his Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. He was raised in North Toronto and Rosedale, he graduated with highest honours in 1934 from Northern Secondary. With university not an option in the heart of the Great Depression, Dad joined his father A.C. SIMMONDS in the family electrical and radio parts business, commencing work on July 2, 1934 in perhaps the most difficult economic circumstances in history. He augmented his knowledge of radio through night courses at Radio College of Canada. At the outbreak of the war, Dad became a member of the 48th Highlanders Reserve, and in 1942 took a leave of absence from business to join the Royal Canadian Corps of Signals, Research and Development Branch, where he served in Ottawa in the rank of Sergeant-Major through the end of the war in 1945. One of his favourite of the many stories he used to tell was of his Commanding Officer Colonel who asked him for a job in the dying days of the war. Despite the challenge of the time he entered business, together with his father and younger brother David, Dad successfully built A.C. Simmonds and Sons to become the leading Canadian national distributor of electrical parts and electronic components, hi-fi, and communications equipment throughout the 1940's, 50's, 60's and 70's. The company was continually on the leading edge of market response to changing technology and successfully introduced many new electronic products to Canada. In 1977, Dad and his brother David recognized the expanded opportunity that would be available from the division of the Company between their families in order to accommodate the entrepreneurial abilities and drive of the next generation. This was accomplished effective January 1, 1978 with the assumption by David, his family and associates of the Lenbrook Division of A.C. Simmonds and Sons. Incorporated at that time, Lenbrook Inc. went on to become the base for the creation of numerous successful businesses including Clearnet Inc. and Air I.Q. Under Dad's leadership, A.C. Simmonds & Sons Ltd. also achieved tremendous growth and success after 1977, and spawned many different entrepreneurial enterprises including Midland Canada, Dynacharge Inc., Viewstar Canada, and ClubLink Corporation. In 1987, the family, together with other business associates, achieved control of Glenayre Electronics Ltd. of Vancouver, and Dad became Chairman until the annual meeting after the successful sale of the company in 1989. Dad had many Electronic Industry involvements, honours and associations but perhaps the one of which he was most proud of was his acceptance as a charter member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, notwithstanding the fact that the Depression has robbed him of the opportunity to actually become a qualified engineer. He had the honour of Chairing the annual Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers conference on two separate occasions. Always open to technological advancement, he travelled extensively as a guest lecturer for International Business Machines Corporation at their worldwide Ideas seminars in the 1970's. His love of people and his common touch was evidenced by his practice of personally greeting every employee at their workstation after any absence from business for more than a week. Most importantly, in the tradition established by A.C. Simmonds, Dad always conducted business with a widely recognized level of integrity that was never in doubt. Dad was a faithful and very active member of Immanuel Baptist Church for almost 80 years, fulfilling many different roles over the years including Young Peoples leader, Sunday School teacher, Juniors leader, and Board of Management member. He was General Superintendent of the Sunday School for 15 years, and was a member of the Board of Deacons for more than 50 years, serving as Chairman for many years. At the time of his passing, he continued as an Honorary Life Deacon, and one of the three Trustees of the Church. Although Dad did not possess the level of musical talent prevalent in his family, he did have a deep and abiding love of the hymns of the church, and had an incredible ability for memorization of many of them in their entirety. From the time of the purchase in 1947 of the family summer retreat in the Township of Uxbridge, Dad's church involvement shifted during the summer months to his beloved Glen Major Church, affectionately known by the family as 'the little church'. For many years he served under Sunday School superintendents Mr. John HINGSTON and Mrs. Jenny JOHNSON as Adult Class teacher, and in the mid-fifties he began to assist his father A.C. SIMMONDS as a lay preacher, using the experience he developed as a member of the Soldiers and Airmen's Christian Association in Ottawa during the war. Upon the death of his father in 1966, Dad assumed full responsibility for the lay preaching and pastoral duties, and continued faithfully to lead the vibrant summer evening services so loved by many until his inability to do so five years ago. son David assumed responsibility for coordination of the services at that time. Most of Dad's Board involvements and commitments using his tremendous skill as a consensus builder were to a wide variety of Christian organizations, consistent with his strong belief in and love for both foreign and home missions work, and at the time of his passing he continued as an Honorary Life member of most of them. These included B.Y.U. (President 1949-50), Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship for 26 years. P (Chairman 1971-74), Ontario Pioneer Camp for 11 years (Chairman 1956-61), World Team (formerly R.B.M.U.) for 46 years, Yonge Street Mission for 44 years, Tyndale College and Seminary for 45 years (formerly O.B.C. / O.T.S., Chairman 1976-82), and Scripture Union for 50 years. In 1978 he joined the Boa

KRITZWISER, Kay -- I Remember
By Jean JOHNSON, Wednesday, December 14, 2005, Page S9
Jean JOHNSON of Harbourfront Centre Craft Projects in Toronto writes about Kay KRITZWISER, whose obituary appeared on December We became Friends in the 1970s when I was the curator of the Merton Gallery in Toronto and Kay came to review our exhibitions. Her interest was open and sincere, never superficial, but always positive, as if she were seeing them for the first time.
Kay was always dressed immaculately, creatively and confidently with a courageous use of warm colour and style that was always in good taste. No matter where she was, in the country, the city or the jungle, she looked fabulous. Until the very end, she had to have "her face on" before she could converse.
Kay and I travelled together often and I learned that she was a natural flirt. One Christmas in the 1980s, we visited Caracas. We flew down to Angel Falls for New Year's Eve, stayed in a jungle hut and joined a large group of Japanese tourists for dinner in a large, straw-roofed dining room. While we boated down the Caroni River, she found time to flirt with the Guardia Nacional while enjoying the jungle on either side.

JOHNSON, Frank (1921-2005)
On the evening of 2 December 2005, Frank lost his battle with Alzheimer's. He died at Sunrise Senior Residence in Mississauga in his eighty-fifth year. Born and raised in Toronto, he went on to serve with distinction in the Signals Division of the Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve during the Second World War. Following the War, he joined Frankel Structural Steel as a 'blueprint boy' and rose through the organization to become a partner and Vice-President of Operations. He was instrumental in the construction of several Toronto landmarks including the Toronto-Dominion Centre, First Canadian Place and the C.N. Tower. In addition to his duties at Frankel, he was a 'Dollar-A-Year Man' for the Department of Defense Production during the Korean War and served for many years on the Toronto Bid Depository Committee. During the War, Frank met Lois NICHOLSON who was serving as a Women's Royal Naval Service in the Women's Royal Canadian Naval Service in St-Hyacinthe. Just days before War's end, the two married in the Naval Chapel at St- Hyacinthe. They celebrated their sixtieth wedding anniversary in September this year in what was a long and happy marriage. Prior to the onset of Alzheimer's, Frank and Lois took the time afforded by retirement to 'smell the roses' and enjoyed a long period of quiet contentment. Kind and thoughtful, conscientious, generous and tolerant with a ready laugh and a great sense of humour, he will be sorely missed by Lois, sons Ken and Rick, daughter-in-law Brenda, and granddaughters Jennifer and Victoria. At his request, Frank was cremated and quietly remembered by the family. Donations to the Canadian Alzheimer Society would be greatly appreciated.

The King of Danforth-Woodbine
Butcher knew customers' names, gave jobs to kids
Realtors touted shop as a plus in neighbourhood
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
For one week last November, the neighbourhood around Danforth and Woodbine Aves. was dipped in gloom.
Many people stood on the sidewalk outside Royal Beef -- a neighbourhood mecca since 1992 -- waiting for the passage of the funeral cortege from nearby St. Brigid's Church. Close to 2,000 more had gone to the church to say goodbye.
Paul ESTRELA, 46, their butcher and their buddy, had died.
They were both ESTRELA's customers and his Friends -- there was never any differentiating. A big, handsome guy with a boom box of a voice, he'd hail them by name from behind the counter at the back of his butcher shop.
"No lawyers today. We're not serving lawyers," ESTRELA would holler at Jay JOSEFO, a regular Saturday morning customer and a lawyer. There he'd be, grinning, framed by the stuffed animal heads on the wall behind him -- all mementoes from mentors, he'd say, insisting he never picked up a gun himself.
Once ESTRELA demanded to see a note from JOSEFO's wife before selling him rib steaks cut as thick as JOSEFO wanted. And so JOSEFO's wife Wendy wrote ESTRELA a note: "Dear Paul: Jay has my permission to have Jay-sized steaks."
"He had fun and you had such fun going there," JOSEFO said, recalling ESTRELA.
Customers came from all over the city to the shop ESTRELA ran with his wife Carmen. Others came every week from Collingwood, while some trekked to Toronto once a year from Buffalo. Most Saturdays, Royal Beef seemed like a crowded and very lively social club, with customers greeting each other in between kibitzing with Paul and catching up with Carmen.
Local real-estate agents often talked up Royal Beef as a great reason to buy a house in the area. ESTRELA was hailed in Toronto Life magazine, as well as in this newspaper, as a treasure -- one of the city's best butchers, an old-fashioned, savvy professional. He refused to sell meat that hadn't been aged 30 days, and once told a reporter he could cut meat four different ways: Italian, Canadian, German and English.
ESTRELA named his store after the Royal Winter Fair, where he won a butcher contest in 1982.
"He will be so missed," said Lucie JOHNSON, who first came into the store with her kids in strollers. "My kids are Royal Beef babies. That's what all his customers called our kids. Once you came here, you couldn't buy meat at a supermarket."
ESTRELA made a point of giving jobs to kids from the neighbourhood. "They would come here from school and tell Paul they wanted to work here, always because of Paul," said Carmen, who runs the shop's deli section.
For six years, Duncan McIROY and his brother walked by the store on their way to school. "Paul would be opening up and he'd toss me an orange," he recalled. McIROY started going into the store for sandwiches -- "I wasn't a big fan of the ones my mom made and it was $2 for the best sandwich you've ever seen" -- and they started talking.
One Halloween, ESTRELA pointed to a huge pumpkin at the front of the store and told McIROY he'd give him a job if he could figure out a way to take it home. McIROY ran home, grabbed his brother and a wagon, and the pair heaved and hauled it up and took it away. ESTRELA kept his part of the deal, hiring the 13-year-old McIROY six months later.
"My main job was to clean up, fetch him his cappuccinos and let him yell at me," McIROY, now 21, said about the man he calls his best friend. "If he had been as big as his voice, he'd be 8 feet tall."
ESTRELA was also 13 when he started working at the meat counter of Darrigos, a now-defunct Italian chain of supermarkets. He had just moved to Canada from Portugal with his parents and six sisters, and he learned not only to slaughter and skin animals but to speak Italian. That came in handy when he began courting a 16-year-old Carmen, whose Italian mother was a customer at the store. They married when she was 17 and he 19.
"My parents still held hands," said their daughter Bridgette, 22. She worked with her father in the shop on Sundays -- retail down time they spent talking and just "hanging out," she said. The ESTRELAs also have a son John, 26.
ESTRELA spent 11 years as a butcher at a Dominion grocery store until he opened his own place on Valentine's Day in 1984, on Woodmount Ave., around the corner from where Royal Beef was eventually established.
"There wasn't anyone who thought he would make it there, but Paul had the determination of a young bull, a warrior," said Gord DOUCETTE, a friend and fellow butcher. Until ESTRELA opened his own store, the two used to fish every Sunday morning on the Duffins Creek in Pickering, then grab bacon and eggs at Ted's Restaurant on Old Kingston Rd.
After ESTRELA opened his own place, DOUCETTE would come by every Monday morning for coffee and some shop talk. ESTRELA used to say DOUCETTE was the older brother he never had.
A year ago, ESTRELA was featured in the Star extolling the virtues of a new cut of steak, the tri-tip. "It's going to take off once people find out about it," he predicted at the time. As usual, he was right.
A month later, ESTRELA was diagnosed with cancer. He took three days off work, and startled customers wondered where he was. When word got out, offers of help poured in.
"People were saying, 'Anything you need, drives to hospital, anything,'" Bridgette said.
When ESTRELA told DOUCETTE, his friend promised to keep the business going. He closed down his own business and now runs the Royal Beef meat counter.
A little more than a week after ESTRELA's November 7 death, the lights came back on at Royal Beef.
"I couldn't stay away," Carmen said. "All my customers, we just needed to come together."

JOHNSON, Frank (1921-2005)
On the evening of December 2, 2005, Frank lost his battle with Alzheimer's. He died at Sunrise Senior Residence in Mississauga, in his eighty-fifth year. Born and raised in Toronto, he went on to serve with distinction in the Signals Division of the Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve during the Second World War. Following the War, he joined Frankel Structural Steel as a 'blueprint boy' and rose through the organization to become a partner and Vice-President of Operations. He was instrumental in the construction of several Toronto landmarks including the Toronto-Dominion Centre, First Canadian Place and the C.N. Tower. In addition to his duties at Frankel, he was a 'Dollar-A-Year Man' for the Department of Defense Production during the Korean War and served for many years on the Toronto Bid Depository Committee. During the War, Frank met Lois NICHOLSON who was serving as a Women's Royal Naval Service in the Women's Royal Canadian Naval Service in St-Hyacinthe. Just days before War's end, the two married in the Naval Chapel at St-Hyacinthe. They celebrated their sixtieth wedding anniversary in September this year in what was a long and happy marriage. Prior to the onset of Alzheimer's, Frank and Lois took the time afforded by retirement to 'smell the roses' and enjoyed a long period of quiet contentment. Kind and thoughtful, conscientious, generous and tolerant, with a ready laugh and a great sense of humour, he will be sorely missed by Lois, sons Ken and Rick, daughter-in-law Brenda, and granddaughters Jennifer and Victoria. At his request, Frank was cremated and quietly remembered by the family. Donations to the Canadian Alzheimer Society would be greatly appreciated.

JOHNSON, Donald James Leo
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a great man, Don JOHNSON passed away peacefully in the early hours of Saturday, December 24, 2005, to become our newest Christmas Angel. Don fought a courageous battle with prostate and bone cancer but he has returned peacefully to his parents, Leo and Kathleen JOHNSON (née LOCKYER.) Don was an extraordinary man. Born in 1934, he was humble and quiet yet equally strong and brave. He grew up in Clarkson and served as a Mississauga Fire Fighter for 24 years before retiring in 1994. He was a perfectionist who hand built cabin cruisers and repaired boats, and was one of the original members of the Port Credit Yacht Club. Don loved gardening, fishing, snowmobiling, working on puzzles and puttering around the house and garage to make everything perfect. As a mechanic he could fix anything and his gift wrapping was sublime. Don had the heart of a child at Christmas. We are sure that he will be polishing the rails on Santa's sled right now, and for years to come. Don is survived by his loving and devoted wife Doreen after a 47 year marriage. He is adored by his children Craig and Tracey Lynn, Tracey's husband Paul and grandchildren James, Caroline and Matthew who simply cherished their Grampy. He was never more proud than watching James and Matt score their hockey and soccer goals, or Caroline paint her watercolours. Don lived for his family and Friends including his dear sister Marion and her husband Eddie, many nieces and nephews, plus our extended family in Pennsylvania, California and British Columbia. Friends will be received at the Neweduk Funeral Home - "Mississauga Chapel", 1981 Dundas St. W. (1 block East of Erin Mills Pkwy.) on Tuesday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. A Celebration of Life will be held at the Neweduk Chapel, on Wednesday, December 28, 2005 at a time to be announced. Interment Springcreek Cemetery. In memory of Donald, donations to the Cancer Research Society Inc. would be appreciated by the family. God bless your sweet soul Daddy. Fly away home. With love forever from your Suzy Q (Tracey). Neweduk Funeral Home 905-828-8000 www.neweduk.com
