MERIFIELD, Arthur Gordon
The world has just lost a creative and passionate man. As a professor at Seneca College, brilliant mathematician, text book writer, poet, world traveler and lover of all things artistic, Art leaves with us fond memories of his passionate character and generous sincerity. He was sensitive, reflective and insightful …a thinking man. Highly dedicated; he was never afraid to pursue any interest, no matter how much work was required. Fondly known as indecisive, Art had many charming eccentricities. The beginnings of many of his creative writings were jotted down on coffee shop napkins, later to become published texts.
He leaves behind his loving wife Linda, three children, Adam, Jenifer (Mark DAROVNY) and Aaron (Melanie KOWALSKI,) his granddaughters Brittney and Jessica, his two brothers Bob (Jackie LAROUCHE- MERIFIELD) and Ted (Judy VAUTOUR- MERIFIELD,) his nephews Jonathan, Michael, Daniel and Joshua, predeceased by his parents Arthur Gordon and Eva Mary and many Friends new and old. He didn‘t fear death&hellip but deeply regretted the imminent closure of life. It just won't be the same without him… “A thing of beauty tells, A truth the soul can hear Just as the steeple bells, That call the faithful near; So too each truth withholds, Beauty, yet unforetold.” Arthur MERIFIELD November 2, 1944 - January 9, 2005 Friends may call on 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at the R.S. Kane Funeral Home (6150 Yonge Street, at Goulding, south of Steeles). A Funeral Service will be held on Wednesday, January 12, 2005 at 1 o'clock. As an expression of sympathy, donations may be made to the Rudd Clinic for Cancer Prevention or the Canadian Cancer Society.

Plucky cancer fighter dies in Lambton crash
By Jennifer O'BRIEN, Free Press Reporter
He was going to play in the National Hockey League one day. His heart set on that goal, 11-year-old Jalen DAY beat a rare cancer that struck him at goalie camp in 2003.
But yesterday, members of Sarnia's hockey community were devastated to learn the boy known as Smiley -- the boy they had grown to admire -- was killed in a car crash Sunday.
"This is like the cruelest possible plot twist in a movie," said Paul BURGESS, leader of a weekly goalie clinic who shared laughs with Jalen on the ice Saturday.
"You're waiting for the beautiful ending to happen and, all of a sudden, something totally unexpected ruins everything," BURGESS said.
Jalen, who lived in Watford with his family, was one of three area children killed in crashes Sunday.
About 9: 30 a.m., two young sisters, Eva, 4, and Mary FROESE, 9, died on the way to church after a van driven by their mother went out of control on a steep hill near Port Burwell.
The girls' mother, Sara FROESE, three teenage sisters and a male relative suffered non-life-threatening injuries, police said yesterday.
"It's so sad. It's just a freak, sad thing," said Elgin Ontario Provincial Police Const. Jennifer WILKS.
In Lambton County, Jalen's father, David, remained in hospital yesterday with injuries suffered in the crash that killed his son.
The vehicle carrying them collided with another on Petrolia Line around 7: 45 p.m. Sunday. A woman and her six-year-old son from the other vehicle were treated in hospital.
Jalen, sidelined for a year by cancer treatments, had been back to hockey for several months, first at the summer goalie camp, then playing peewee in Watford and attending BURGESS's clinics at the Sarnia Sports and Entertainment Centre.
Everything was going just as Jalen planned, BURGESS said.
"After he found out he had cancer (in August 2003), he told me, 'I'm going to beat cancer because I'm going to play in the National Hockey League someday,' BURGESS said.
"And when he first came back, his skating was suffering because the tumour had affected his right leg. But by Saturday morning, I had put him with the best skaters -- that's how far he had come.
Sarnia Sting goalie coach Larry LUCAS met Jalen at the 2003 goalie camp, where the young boy learned he had a rare form of cancer called rhabdomyosarcoma.
"Everybody is in utter shock," LUCAS said yesterday. "To see him beat cancer and then get a phone call at 7: 30 (a.m.) saying he got killed... I'm really struggling with this."
Jalen was considered a local success story after his rough battle with the brutal cancer that causes tumours to attack muscle cells. The cancer strikes about 60 children around the world each year.
In November 2003, while Jalen was in radiation therapy, the Sting put on a benefit hockey game before a packed arena, raising $25,000 for his family.
London Knights assistant coach Jeff PERRY, then with the Sting, helped organize the game between the Ontario Hockey League team and National Hockey League players.
Jalen dropped the puck.
Yesterday, a "devastated and numb" PERRY recalled the day.
"It was great," he said. "The highlight was Jalen sitting beside me in the dressing room... he looked over at me and said he didn't want the day to end."
Students and staff at Brooke Central school in Alvinston were grieving Jalen's death yesterday.
Principal Ann LARSEN said she couldn't comment personally, but read from a news release.
"Jalen... was always willing to share and express his humour and good sportsmanship with others," the release said.
"His recent success in overcoming cancer was wellknown in the community and his determination to overcome adversity was an inspiration."

The rich Friendships Paul cultivated from childhood and throughout his well-travelled life will suffer dearly from his loss. He will be sorely missed.

Shanna Louise Elizabeth LARSEN
By Lorna LARSEN, Wednesday, October 19, 2005, Page A22
Daughter, sister, friend, artist, athlete, swimming instructor, professional figure skating coach. Born March 13, 1981, in North Bay, Ontario Died May 14 in Woodstock, Ontario, of breast cancer, aged 24.
Shanna (Shan) was born on Friday the 13th and people predicted she would have good luck for the rest of her life.
She was the oldest of our three children and big sister to her brothers, Kris and Andrew. Shanna -- the name means beautiful in Hebrew -- had a happy, healthy childhood growing up in the northeastern Ontario town of Haileybury. The north always remained special to her.
From her earliest years, Shanna had a knack for hairstyling, often doing her own and Friends' hair for skating competitions, parties and special events. She had an innate sense of fashion and style and often set the trend.
Shan made a mean lasagna and melt-in-your-mouth pastry. She enjoyed a glass of wine with family and Friends: It always went well with one of her favourite cheeses.
She valued physical activity and a healthy lifestyle and was involved with sports throughout school -- swimming, cross-country running, skiing, track and field, soccer, roller-blading and figure skating. Shanna started skating at the age of 3 and enjoyed it for the recreation, camaraderie, competition and the love of the sport. She achieved her Skate Canada gold medal in Dance at 16 and became a professional figure-skating coach in 2002.
Shanna excelled in high school and achieved the Ontario Academic Credit Art Award in her final year. She then pursued an Honours bachelor of arts degree in visual arts through the University of Western Ontario, graduating in 2004. Her plan was to attend teacher's college in the fall of 2005.
Shanna had a kind and gentle spirit, always caring and willing to help. She had a passion for life, recognized by all who knew her, and was an inspiration for her co-workers. Shanna had her dad's sense of humour and her mother's laugh. She had a serious respect for life, but could laugh at everything, including herself.
As well as her figure-skating coaching, Shanna was a skilled swimming instructor. She loved working with young children and was always willing to take on a challenge: She was an instructor who enjoyed working with the hard-to-reach, the difficult, or the disadvantaged child.
Most of all, Shanna loved life. She lived each day to the fullest, working hard and playing hard. The sunflower was her favourite flower and, like it, she loved summer and sunshine. She had a permanent tan that earned her the nickname "Shan the Tan."
Friends were very special to Shanna and she was frequently was the centre of their activities. They loved her huge smile, her bright eyes and her warm personality. A friend commented that she drew people together with her personality and presence. During her two-month stay at the cancer treatment centre, nurses were astounded at the immense support she received from Friends and said they hadn't seen this often in their practice.
A lifelong friend said, "Shan spread her love over all of us. She touched many lives, our lives, everyone in a way we will never forget." Friends were the sunshine of her life and she was the sunshine of theirs.
Remembering Shan, a close friend shared the following for her Celebration of Life: "A friend is someone you choose wisely, for a friend is your own mirrored image, someone to complement your own self, someone who indicates who you are as a person."
Shanna was chosen by many.
Lorna is Shanna's mother.
