Bob BYERS, 58: Bike courier, outlaw
Died while on a delivery at 58
'He had all the Friends he wanted'
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
His buddies stopped traffic June 17, the day after he dropped dead on the job.
Bob BYERS was 58; one of the oldest bike couriers in town, an urban outlaw who traded in jobs more often than some people get haircuts but at the same time a mentor and father figure to any Lycra-clad, pierced kid starting out in the strange and dangerous rebel world where work is weaving 10-speeds through Toronto traffic.
Everybody knew him as Biker Bob, although some of the young ones took to calling him Old Bob -- probably because he was always good for a loan, even if the tab was up to $900, as was the case with at least one of the guys who hung around on their breaks outside the Duke of Richmond pub in the Eaton Centre.
More often than not, on Mondays Biker Bob would stand them to a round of beers with the winnings from his weekend chess games at the tables in the park near St. Michael's church.
This was his world; they were his family -- even his own family believes that.
"His second family was that courier community," said his sister Mary GORDON of Peterborough. "He found a way to be alone and in a group. It was the only way he could handle life, to be alone."
"The courier business was perfect for him, " said his younger brother Jim, a Toronto Transit Commission driver.
For the past three or four Christmases, Jim BYERS would find a frozen turkey on the porch, a gift from his brother, who refused every year to join the family for Christmas dinner. It wasn't a good time of year for BYERS anyway; it was a time when he usually lost his battle with booze.
"He was the family hermit, my uncle was kind of a recluse," said Kip GORDON. " But he lived the way he wanted to. He was a free spirit."
BYERS lived near his nephew and always stopped him on the street to ask about the family. "He was happy. He had all the Friends he wanted in the world," Kip GORDON said. "In that crowd no one asks unnecessary questions but they have unconditional loyalty to each other."
A long-faced grizzled guy with skinny legs, rock hard thighs and a beer gut, whose grey ponytail trailed halfway down his back, he was opinionated and stubborn and convinced he was right about most things.
He lived in one of the city's real lofts -- a 300 sq. ft. space accessed by a freight elevator that had no stove and was littered with bike parts. The bathroom was down the hall; inside BYERS had one chair and one plate that he ate from -- but it was Royal Doulton china.
He may have been an iconoclast and anti-authoritarian, but he subscribed to The Globe and Mail and he was a stickler for the rules of the road. He never rode on sidewalks and was humiliated on the one occasion he got a ticket (for failing to stop at a stop sign).
He was a complicated guy, hating bosses and unions, but loving to work.
A photo was taken of him on January 13, 1999, after the mayor of the time, Mel LASTMAN, called in the army to deal with the snowstorm that had socked Toronto -- but not Biker Bob.
"That was another part of Bob's pride -- he did it in winter," said Jim BYERS.
His bikes were stolen and banged up -- his last accident was three or four years ago when he was sent flying by a right-turning car. "He rode in a city that was dangerous and polluted and it was a thrill for him," said his nephew.
Toronto has had a thriving courier population since the heydays of the '80s, when at least 500 of them were working the city's streets.
It's been one of the main world cities for them, according to Wayne SCOTT of the Hoof and Cycle Active Transport Guild and a courier himself.
"We're as much a fixture in the downtown as the C.N. Tower or the Scotia Plaza," he said.
He was a legend among couriers and so after he died about 150 of them gathered to hoist a few to him, then hoist their bikes over their shoulders and trek down Albert St. to outside 20 Queen St. W., the site of BYERS' last delivery, to lay their bikes on the road and stop traffic -- their way to pay tribute.
"I was so happy when I heard that," said Kip GORDON. "He hated drivers."
One of five children, he grew up in Mattawa but left home at 16 and got a job in Toronto making a buck an hour working the stock room on roller blades at the Canadian Tire store at Yonge and Davenport.
He went back home to complete grades 11 and 12, then took off again, hitchhiking across Canada in 1966 before returning to sign up for the army.
He was rejected because of a heart defect incurred when he suffered from rheumatic fever as a child.
He married and fathered two children and went to work in the mines. When his marriage broke up after three years, he signed away his parental rights because his ex-wife's new husband was taking over, and began several adventurous years wandering around the country. In 1982 he settled down with a partner, and worked as a bookbinder until 1991.
"He ended up binding the Sears catalogue," said his sister Mary GORDON. "He tried to fit in at different times in his life."
But when this relationship ended, he became a courier.
He compromised his healthy work lifestyle by smoking and drinking too much. He knew he was living on borrowed time after a doctor diagnosed serious problems with his aortic valve five or six years ago and told him to alter his lifestyle to allow him to operate. BYERS never did.
He always told them he never wanted a funeral -- "Throw me off a bridge first," he'd say -- and his family obeyed his wishes. But on September 10 they held a memorial service for him outside on the lawn of Metropolitan United Church.
A lot of his courier Friends were there, their bikes forming a sort of honour guard.
"I think that is what he would have wanted," said Mary GORDON.

GERTLER, Jeffrey Lee
January 18, 2005
After a recurrence of brain cancer, despite the best of care at the Clinique de Genolier, Switzerland, and the constant support of family, colleagues and Friends, his courage and morale undiminished, on January 18, 2005 he was taken from his wife, Ann Stewart GERTLER their sons Marin (fiancée Rocio LASTRAS) and Joshua; his parents, Maynard and Ann Straus GERTLER; brothers and sisters-in-law, Michael (JoAnn JAFFE,) Alfred (Kathryn MacRAE,) Franklin (Catherine OLIVER) and Edward (Mary-Jo LOW/LOWE/LOUGH;) sisters-in-law, Cynthia VON MAERESTETTEN and Rowena STEWARD/STEWART/STUART; mother-in-law, Thisbe STEWARD/STEWART/STUART nieces, Lisa and Jardena; nephews, Mark, Maxim, Will, Leo, Nicholas, John Nathaniel and Theo; beloved family member, Doris WINKLER and his extended family in Ottawa, Toronto, New York, California, England and Scotland who survive him to celebrate his 51 productive years. He was born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, among the Plain People, where his college-teaching parents chose to farm. But his education was to begin at Darwin House, Cambridge, England (when they resumed research interrupted by service in the wartime administrations and army (Maynard) of Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry S. Truman) -- to be continued largely at St. George's School, Montreal. His further development was associated with training institutes in non-violence and peace research, fostered by the Canadian Peace Research Institute and sponsored by the Canadian Friends Service Committee and the Canadian National Commission of United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. He was a "resource person" for the 1970 and 1971 high school peace workshops which took place at Grindstone Island on Big Rideau Lake, Portland, Ontario, the former summer home of Admiral Sir Charles Edmund KINGSMILL (first director of the Royal Canadian Navy) and his family, and loaned by his heirs for that purpose. Jeffrey's professional skills were acquired at Swarthmore College, Pennsylvania, by a B.A., with emphasis on contemporary political economy, history and French (Université de Grenoble), by study at the Institute of Comparative International Law, Paris, on Regulation of International Business Transactions, by a J.D. at the University of San Diego, California, an LLM from Georgetown University, Washington, D.C., and by work with the Commonwealth Secretariat, London, the U.S. International Trade Commission, and the Office of the United States Trade Representative, among others. A member of the California and District of Columbia bars and of the American Society for International Law, he entered his latest field of activity through applications to United Nations and United Nations-affiliated agencies. Invited to Geneva by the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade, he was employed by them in 1988, and stayed on when the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade evolved into the World Trade Organization in 1995. As Senior Counsellor in the Legal Affairs Division, he was active in the elaboration of dispute settlement procedures, in panels pertaining to the admission of countries, such as China, to the World Trade Organization, in work, duty travel and conferences on four continents, including university-sponsored speaking engagements on various aspects of globalization: human rights, labour, environment and living conditions, as well as trade. Jeffrey gravitated toward work in the public interest by an early internship with the Environmental Defense Fund of Washington, D.C., and by a spell as Special Assistant to the Rector of the United Nations University of Tokyo. Not incidentally, his two non-professional affiliations in 1988 at the time of joining the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade were with the Lawyers Alliance for Nuclear Arms Control, and Friends of the Earth. He delighted in sailing off Norfolk, England, on Lakes Ontario and Champlain, the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, the Chesapeake with his wife Ann and boys, from their first home at Shady Side, near Annapolis, Maryland, and Lake Geneva (Léman). He loved life and knew well what to do with it, was an enthusiastic skiier and swimmer, an accomplished photographer, a keen gardener and family farmer, in Ontario, and an excellent cook. At various times he played the recorder, violin and guitar. Family meant the world to him, and his children were his greatest joy. Facing final illness, his supreme regret was the prospect that he might not be around to share in their lives, to support them, and to help celebrate their accomplishments. The warmest of farewells were given him at the Temple de Genolier above Lake Geneva, January 24, on a sunny day, emblazoned by fresh snow and invigorated by the mountain air. In addition to his wife, sons and brothers, some 150 Friends and colleagues were in attendance, many from the World Trade Organization, the United Nations family, the International School of Geneva, the United Nations High Commission for Refugees, Femmes Pour la Paix, and the International Peace Bureau. Following cremation, Jeffrey's remains will be interred near his home in Divonne les Bains, France. Contact with the family in Montreal may be had through Franklin GERTLER, at Aldred Building, 507 Place d'Armes, Suite 1200, Montreal, Québec, Canada H2Y 2W8; telephone (514) 842-0748; e-mail: franklin@gertlerlex.ca, or Maynard and Ann GERTLER, at 482 Strathcona Avenue, Westmount, Québec, Canada H3Y 2X1; telephone (514) 933-7913; fax (514) 933-1702 e-mail: ann.maynard.gertler@videotron.ca (and Box #58, Williamstown, Ontario, Canada K0C 2J0; telephone (613) 347-3505.
