Ed STEVENS marched his way into city's heart
Mr. STEVENS will be best remembered proudly marching in his bright red tunic and black and yellow trousers and hat at the head of his Owen Sound Collegiate and Vocational Institute band
By Bill HENRY. Sun Times Staff, Page A1
The much-loved founder of the old Owen Sound Collegiate and Vocational Institute Drum and Trumpet Band died Wednesday at the age of 94.
Ed STEVENS was a popular Owen Sound elementary school teacher and principal and high school English and history teacher from 1930 until he retired in 1969.
He was a cadet instructor, master of his Masonic lodge, active Division Street United Church member and chaired the Grey County Board of Education in the early 1970s.
But Mr. STEVENS will be best remembered proudly marching in his bright red tunic and black and yellow trousers and hat at the head of his Owen Sound Collegiate and Vocational Institute band, Friends, family and former band members said Thursday.
"It was a very, very popular organization and he was kind of a local hero and has been ever since," said Fred FURNESS, a former Owen Sound Collegiate and Vocational Institute principal and student at the school when the band was at its peak in the early 1950s.
"He's always been at the front of it. He's been the focus of it really and he's well known for it."
Mr. STEVENS started the band in 1946 after taking a job at Owen Sound Collegiate and Vocational Institute teaching English and history and leading the school cadets.
Although he had no musical training he believed the cadets should have a marching band and eventually taught himself percussion, his son Ted STEVENS said Thursday.
The band became a community fixture, marching in Santa Claus parades and playing on Remembrance Day and at other special events for many years.
The band reunited in 1981 after a long hiatus for the 125th Owen Sound Collegiate and Vocational Institute reunion and many members continued to perform regularly throughout the community over the next 11 or 12 years as the Owen Sound Collegiate and Vocational Institute Alumni Trumpet Band.
Members marched again behind Mr. STEVENS for the 145th school anniversary in 1996 and last performed together during the emotional farewell to the old Owen Sound Collegiate and Vocational Institute building when it closed in 1999.
"That was the wind up of it all," former member George JEFFERSON said "He was marching with the rest of us right up to the very end of it."
Since then, many of Mr. STEVENS' " Boys" have gathered annually with their former teacher, mentor and band leader on his birthday. Sixteen of them got together last summer and were delighted when Mr. STEVENS wore his band uniform to the party, George GREEN said.
He recalled Mr. STEVENS as a fair but demanding and inspiring leader.
"He was strict. He wasn't a laid-back fellow. If you did something wrong, he'd tell you about it. In the trumpet band he wanted perfection and that's what we strived for," GREEN said.
He also cared deeply about his students and looked after them well, including offering GREEN work after class and in summer.
"That's the kind of guy he was. He was more like a mentor to me and I think anybody that was in the band was the same. Ed looked after his boys and he's still looking after his boys."
That inspired unusual devotion among his students and band members, GREEN added.
Helen JOHNSTONE was a former student who said the man's 'basic decency' was an inspiration. He was an exemplary educator who made a difference in the community and will be much missed, she added.
"He was such a superb person. I always considered him my mentor," JOHNSTONE said.
They later served together Grey County school trustees and continued a lifelong Friendship. His love of books, literature and learning partly inspired her own similar interests, she said Thursday.
"He had a brilliant mind and a devilish sense of humour," JOHNSTONE said.
Ted STEVENS said education and learning were the principal interests throughout his father's long and active life. He cared about his students, wanted them to do well and kept in touch with many of them over the years.
Until just a few months ago Mr. STEVENS was corresponding with several Christian scholars as he explored his most recent interest, the history of Christianity, his son said.
He began teaching at Dufferin school in Owen Sound in 1930 and was principal at both Hillcrest and Victoria schools. He also taught at both Owen Sound Collegiate and Vocational Institute and West Hill Secondary School and was supervisor of academic training at Georgian College.
Edmund Campbell STEVENS died in Owen Sound Wednesday morning.
A memorial service was planned for 11 a.m. today at Division Street United Church.

JOHNSTONE, Anne E.
Died peacefully at St. Michael's Hospital on September 4, 2005 after a long and courageous battle with cardiovascular disease.
Anne was the loving and devoted mother of Steven JOHNSTONE and the proud mother-in-law of his wife, Dana (WOODS.) She was the beloved daughter of William and Anne MARTIN of Bristol, England, both pre-deceased and the older sister to Ian MARTIN.
Anne always had a special affection for children and took great pride in watching them grow to adulthood. She was a loving Aunt to Ian's daughters, Kendra and Alison and was pleased to be in touch with Kendra through her wedding preparations over the past year. Anne will be dearly missed by all the Kane children to whom she was an honourary mom and grand-mom.
Anne was a gracious and eloquent person who measured her worth by her ability to do things for others. Over the years she was involved in many volunteer and community activities. She was especially proud of the time she spent as President of the Board of Directors at 270 Timberbank Boulevard in Agincourt, where she was a firm steward and a caring neighbour.
Despite the seriousness of her illness, Anne maintained a large circle of Friends and spent many hours on the phone listening to the events of people's lives and providing her inimitable brand of practical advice. She will be dearly missed by those Friends who have known and loved her for many years and she deeply appreciated the kindness of her new Friends at Deer Park United Church, who provided care and comfort through the past year.
Anne's family would like to provide special thanks to the many skilled people at St. Michael's Hospital who were involved with her care. They are indebted to Dr. Allan LOSSING and his talented team who provided Anne with eight additional years of life. They also appreciate the dedicated care provided by the emergency room and 14th floor step-up unit during the summer.
Anne's funeral will be held in the chapel at the Morley Bedford Funeral Home, 159 Eglinton Avenue West (2 stop lights west of Yonge St.) on Friday, September 9 at 3.00 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Deer Park United Church, 129 St. Clair Avenue West, Toronto M4V 1N5 or to the St. Michael's Hospital Foundation, 30 Bond Street, Toronto, Ontario M5B 1W8.

HODD, Jack Lorne
Peacefully after a brief illness, on October 6, 2005 at the age of 91, the music of life ended for Jack HODD. Beloved husband for 58 years of the late Isabel (SKINNER) and father of Sylvia JOHNSTONE (Don McMILLAN) and Stephen HODD (Linda).

Jack had a special bond with his many nieces and nephews. Jack was known in Hamilton music circles as an organist and music director at several churches over an eight decade career, including Westdale United Church and most recently at St. Giles United Church. He retired from the Otis Elevator Company in 1974 and focused on composing music, particularly sacred, of which several were published and many more performed locally. Jack was respected for his skill as an accompanist and leaves a legacy of music and legions of Friends from the choirs and churches of which he was a part. If desired, in lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to The Salvation Army. A Memorial Service to celebrate his life will take place at St. Giles United Church, Main Street East at Holton Avenue, Hamilton (905-549-3068) on Wednesday, October 12 at 3 p.m. with a reception to follow.
