Frank LACE, Soldier And Investment Expert: 1911-2005
Artillery officer who reached the rank of acting brigadier at 33 was decorated for providing Canadian infantrymen in the Netherlands with devastating fire support
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to The Globe and Mail, Wednesday, June 22, 2005, Page S9
Ottawa -- Commanding artillery in battle, whether a battery of four guns or a regiment boasting dozens of guns, takes an enormous amount of professional knowledge plus the ability to calculate complex fire plans under extreme pressure. A lot of luck comes in handy, too. By all accounts, Frank LACE of Toronto displayed all those qualities during the Second World War, building a reputation as one of the most experienced and decorated officers in the Royal Regiment of Canadian Artillery.
Mr. LACE received his first important decoration on June 8, 1944, just two days after D-Day, when he was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire. In October of 1945, he was mentioned in dispatches for "gallant and distinguished services in the field" before receiving the Distinguished Service Order for his leadership on the battlefields of northwest Europe, where he showed "at all times great devotion to duty without regard to himself, visiting forward observation posts or making use of small aircraft to get the first-hand picture of enemy dispositions and strong points."
On top of that, he achieved the rank of acting brigadier in late 1944 when only 33 and commanded two artillery regiments.
During the battle of Savojaards Plaat, fought during the Scheldt Estuary campaign in the Netherlands in October of 1944, Mr. LACE displayed tactical innovation as the commanding officer of 13 Canadian Field Regiment, Royal Canadian Artillery. He was directly responsible for the co-ordination and control of the artillery support required by the three brigades of 3 Canadian Infantry Division.
Although Operation Switchback initially called for the division to turn back to Dunkirk after stopping at Watou, the Germans blocked the approach to the strategically important port of Antwerp through the West Scheldt, so a change in plan was required.
Because of stiff resistance, Canadian infantrymen were ordered across the Plaat, a muddy bay opening off the West Scheldt, to extend their bridgehead, so artillery could follow.
"The ground was ideal for defence, being flat, almost at sea level, and intersected by countless dikes and drainage ditches," wrote regimental historian Lieutenant W. BARRETT.
Then Mr. LACE had an idea. Why not fire at the Germans from behind, even though it meant shooting toward advancing Canadians? The tactic left the enemy without the protection of the dikes and demoralized their defence.
Mr. LACE's contribution earned him the Distinguished Service Order. "In spite of extreme difficulties and transportation, LACE, by his tireless effort, although without sleep for several days at a time, succeeded in preparing and executing the complex fire plan and ensuring that the absolute maximum support was given to the infantry throughout that difficult week," the citation read.
Week after week, the soft-spoken Mr. LACE lived under tremendous emotional and physical strain. The constant pressure never let up, since he was directly responsible for the lives of his gunners, and for providing the infantry with desperately needed firepower.
Mr. LACE, after matriculating at Upper Canada College, graduated from the Royal Military College of Canada in 1932, during an era when it was pretty much a finishing school for the upper classes. During the Depression, he worked in Toronto as an investment salesman and soldiered part-time with 7 (Toronto) Regiment, Royal Canadian Artillery, of the Non-Permanent Active Militia.
Two days after Canada declared war, Mr. LACE married his sweetheart, Barbara CALDWELL, before shipping out to Britain in January of 1940. A few months later, he was a major. Mr. LACE later commanded 15 Field Regiment, Royal Canadian Artillery, before becoming a staff officer at 1st Canadian Army headquarters.
Late in the war, Mr. LACE was given command of Royal Canadian Artillery for the 2nd Canadian Infantry Division. During the assault into Germany, he was responsible for organizing fire support for a series of tough operations in February and March of 1945.
"The success of these operations was in no small measure due to the fire support provided by units commanded by this officer," said his citation.
After the war, Mr. LACE returned to the investment business, finishing as chairman of Matthews and Co. Ltd. from 1972 to 1975.
His other great passion was golf, said his son, Roger.
"He treated the investment business as a military campaign replete with strategies and skirmishes. He took the same approach to golf, which he studied and practised intensively, rain or shine. His relentless persistence resulted in a hole-in-one in his 91st year, all the more remarkable as he was legally blind."
Francis Dwyer LACE was born on November 20, 1911, in Qu'Appelle, Saskatchewan. He died on April 29, 2005, in Toronto. He was 93. He leaves his wife, Barbara, son Roger and daughter Cathy. He was predeceased by his sister Marion.

Mary Agnes LACEY
By Liam LACEY, Thursday, January 20, 2005 - Page A26
Mother, teacher, reader, thinker. Born September 24, 1922, in Leeds, England. Died November 23, 2004, in Toronto, of heart failure, aged 82.
She was raised in a tiny row house in the industrial city of Leeds, the eldest of two children of a seamstress and an electrician's helper, struggling through the Depression. A tinted school photograph when she was about 14 shows a pretty but unsmiling girl, a determined intelligent gaze staring out from under her bangs: Although she suffered from a series of childhood illnesses, including pneumonia and rheumatic fever, she was a high achiever at the convent school she attended. She sang lead in Gilbert and Sullivan musicals at her school, studied elocution to lose her Yorkshire accent and won a scholarship to university, her gateway to a better life. The onset of the Second World War and family tragedy ended those plans.
Mary's mother died of heart failure, caused by rheumatic fever, at 44. Two years later, Mary was out on a date on Christmas Eve with a young Irish soldier when she heard a siren. The ambulance was for her 42-year-old father, who, in a freak accident, had fallen off a streetcar to his death.
Mary was 18, working as an apprentice to a chemist when she married the soldier, Jim LACEY, who was with her that night. Although the premature deaths of her parents cast a shadow over her life for years, she would often quote the adage: "God fills empty arms." She had six children in 13 years, three in England and three in Canada. After a couple of years running a greengrocer's, she and Jim decided to move to Canada, to escape the stigma of the English class system.
In Canada, life was often arduous. Our father had a job working on the railway and was often away for a week at a time. In 1959, he bought a farm near Lindsay, Ontario There was no running water in the house, there were cows to feed and milk. Living in near-pioneer conditions of drudgery and loneliness, she taught herself farming through books. She also read voraciously on questions of spirituality and social justice. Long before the late Sixties made such ideas fashionable, she believed in left-wing politics, pacifism and feminism and shopped at thrift shops. Unlike the hippies, though, she recited Gilbert and Sullivan while she milked the cows and enjoyed Carry On movies at the drive-in.
By the time Mary reached 40, her eldest son was in medical school, and her youngest in Grade 1. She went back to school to become a teacher, driving more than 60 kilometres each way on snowbound country roads to reach the college and compete with students almost half her age. When she graduated, she entered the happiest period of her life.
She loved teaching elementary school and made many enduring Friendships during her long teaching career. Later, by attending night school, she completed an undergraduate degree, while helping her children with their education. Until then, no one on either side of the family had any post-secondary schooling; all six of her children graduated from university.
Once, at the school reunion, an old classmate, who had known our family, asked me: "Is your mother still a deep thinker?" I laughed but it was accurate. She cared nothing about fashion or social status. She read a great deal and thought about deep subjects: How to be a better person; how to lead a purposeful life.
Because of the tough times she had known, the most important virtue for her was compassion. No Christmas went by without several unexpected guests -- people she learned would be along for the holiday -- included in the family gathering. She could never pass a beggar without giving him a handout and a kind word. If you said, "But he'll spend it on drink," she'd hush you: "You don't know what he needs. You can't judge."
The Globe's Liam LACEY is Mary's son.

Deacon John passes away, 84
By Michael GENNINGS, Page 6
John Elsworth BOUDREAU, a deacon at St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Church in Stayner, died at Collingwood General and Hospital on Thursday.
BOUDREAU, 64, died from respiratory illness, friend and fellow deacon Dave WHALL said.
"He was a very holy man -- he had a real love of God," WHALL said Monday night during an interview.
BOUDREAU, who served 31 years in the Royal Canadian Air Force, retiring as a flight sergeant, was married to his wife, Vi, for 52 years.
He was ordained 31 years ago one of the first group of deacons to be ordained for the Archdiocese of Toronto.
As a deacon BOUDREAU served Catholics attending St. Patrick's and St. Noël Chabanel Roman Catholic Church in Wasaga Beach until his retirement almost three years ago.
WHALL said that BOUDREAU spent much of his time visiting shut-ins and people in hospital.
"Your principal role as a deacon is to minister to the disenfranchised," WHALL explained.
Although BOUDREAU lived at Bay Haven Nursing Home in Collingwood before his death, WHALL said for a number of years BOUDREAU called Stayner and Wasaga Beach home.
Funeral services for BOUDREAU are scheduled to take place Friday and Saturday.
Friends will be received at St. Patrick's on Friday, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., with a vigil service at 8 p.m. A funeral mass is at 11 a.m. on Saturday at the church.
St. Patrick's is located on William Street.
Burial will take place at St. Patrick's Catholic Cemetery on County Rd. 91.
The family says that if desired donations can be made to St. Vincent de Paul Society or ShareLife, both care of the church, 215 Pine Street, Stayner, Ontario, L0M 1S0.
BOUDREAU is survived by his wife Vi, and three children: John of Campbell River, British Columbia, Erma HAWKINS of Saint John's, Newfoundland and Sylvia LACHANCE of Longueuil, Quebec

Jill Suzanne LAFFERTY- SMITH
By Lisa LACHANCE, Thursday, October 20, 2005, Page A26
Daughter, sister, mother, wife, grandma, animal lover, nurse. Born February 16, 1947, in Belleville, Ontario Died April 29 in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, of respiratory failure, aged 58.
Jill was born close to Valentine's Day, and always celebrated birthdays with heart-shaped cakes -- how appropriate for a lifelong romantic and endless dreamer. Jill's own heart was big and strong her whole life, caring for people and animals, and it was her heart that fought for life even as her lungs failed.
Always an adventurer and ready for something new, Jill packed a lot into her life.
She and her three siblings were spaced over 21 years, but, being in the middle, Jill had memories of all of them at home. As a child, she loved swimming and the family summers at Oak Lake, Ontario She hated math but loved school dances.
She always told me that women didn't have many career choices in the late 1960s and used this as the basis for daily lessons on feminism. Still, Jill loved being a nursing assistant, focusing on geriatrics and, in later years, worked with mentally and physically challenged adults. She had an unwavering belief in the strength and capacity of all people, and the people she worked with flourished. Those who loved her often wished she would lavish more of this love on herself. Jill was always her own harshest critic.
Early in her 20s, Jill met her first husband Jean Claude. She soon moved to Quebec, living in Rimouski, Montreal and Quebec City. They overcame the language barrier, made fashion statements as one only could in the late 1960s, and travelled widely in the "Lovebug" camping trailer.
Jill felt she waited a long time to finally become a mother. Separated and then widowed, she was a single mother at a time when rental apartments could still be denied to single parents, but Jill made it look easy. She loved being a mom and knew how to be a "hip mama" before the term was coined. Jill organized family cottage rentals at Sandbanks Park and no evening was complete without everyone enjoying their self-selected little brown bag of penny candy from the store down the road. Jill was a devoted mother and supported me in my education and travels around the world, always finding the right place for the latest piece of ethnic art.
She met her soulmate Gary in time to enjoy many years together. Two such gentle souls have rarely been paired; they were perfect together. They built a home and life with each other. Jill also cared for an extended family of cats, ducks, chipmunks, mice, spiders and birds.
Jill eagerly anticipated being a grandmother -- a fact she didn't hide, and usually emphasized -- especially after I met Heather, whom Jill welcomed as a second daughter. No one was more excited than Jill when Heather and I adopted our son Jason. That Jason only had a few short months with his grandma is a terrible sadness for Jill's family, but she filled him with enough love to last a lifetime.
Jill was dancing in the pool in the Dominican Republic only a few days before suffering cardiac arrest and being placed on a ventilator. That she was headstrong is not in doubt; sadly, not even Jill could overcome the damage of a lifelong smoking addiction.
In her late 30s, Jill began struggling with mental health problems. At times, it seemed like these problems could overwhelm her. But her true capability shone through when she was asked to make the most difficult decision -- whether, with her lungs gone, the ventilator should be turned off. No one doubted Jill didn't want to die but in the end, her peace and graciousness inspired all who came near. It rained relentlessly the day of the funeral, lest anyone doubt how diminished the world is for her passing.
Lisa is Jill's daughter.
