LAURIN, L. Kenneth
Peacefully and without pain or incident, on December 7, 2005 at his beloved Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital in his 82nd year, L. Kenneth LAURIN, Immediate Past President of the Hospital Auxiliary and member of the Board. Former Corporate Secretary, Treasurer, and partner for more than 20 years at Cooper Lybrand, and previously a senior financial officer at Singer and Johnson & Johnson Canada. Predeceased by his beloved wife Emmy Pfenning LAURIN and his brother William Alfred LAURIN of Montreal. Survived by his daughter, Susan BECKERMAN of Prince Rupert, British Columbia his sister-in-law Dolores LAURIN (Regina,) his niece Kathryn LAURIN and her husband Read JORGENSEN (Regina,) his nephew William LAURIN and his wife Lori ALTER (Toronto,) his beloved grandnephews Will and Sheanan Kenneth LAURIN, his cousin Donn WILSON and his wife Lillian, and a host of their loving children and grandchildren in the Burns, Brown and Wilson families of Hamilton, Whitby and Aurora, Ontario. He will also be missed by his close Friends including Dick and Kate CAPPON of Oakville, "the Litchfield Gang," and innumerable others across the country. Ken was born in Montreal on February 17, 1924, was educated at Daniel O'Connell school, and volunteered for service with the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1943. He qualified as a Pilot Officer and survived some of the most dangerous flying of the war on Wellington bombers in Europe and later on air transport over "the hump" of the Hymalayas in support of the British Army in Burma. He continued to fly in the Reserves after the war until the advent of jet fighters convinced him that accounting was his true calling. Ken and Emmy lived in Montreal for many years, and built a beautiful vacation home at Jay Peak in Vermont that they continued to retreat to after moving to Toronto in 1980 and on to Oakville in 1989. Ken was a man of tremendous charm and charisma, combined with a savvy and determined mind. His personal talents seemed limitless, from stained glass work through music and writing. His last days were spent surrounded by the love of Friends and family, and concerned and professional care from the staff of Three East at Oakville Trafalgar.

Keith WINTERHALDER, Scientist (1935-2005)
Laurentian University teacher was a meticulous researcher but the epitome of the eccentric absent-minded professor at home, writes Sandra MARTIN. Importantly, he was the brains behind the greening of Sudbury, Ontario,
By Sandra MARTIN, Tuesday, November 29, 2005, Page S9
Sudbury was not a pretty sight when botanist Keith WINTERHALDER arrived to teach at Laurentian University in 1965. Logging, fire, smelter emissions from the International Nickel Company (Inco) and soil erosion had wiped out almost all of the vegetation in the area. The barren soil, lacking the normal mulch from leaves falling in the autumn, suffered from severe frost in the winter and overheated in the summer.
Inco had tried sowing grass seeds. They would germinate, but the roots would wither as soon as they encountered the contaminated soil surface. After years of experimentation, Prof. WINTERHALDER learned, in what came to be called the Winterhalder Method, that an application of ground limestone could detoxify soil -- not just in Sudbury but in many areas of the world where mining and other industrial applications have polluted the environment. He also discovered that if a sparse grass cover could be established on a rocky hillside that had been treated with limestone and fertilizer, seeds from the few existing poplars, willows and birches in the surrounding area would blow in, germinate and grow.
"He suggested a lot of different grasses and different soils and different amounts of lime and fertilizer we could use," said Tom PETERS, former head of the Agricultural Dept. at Inco. It was as though the land degraded by the smelter formed a huge open air laboratory. "We carried on talking as we did different things and he became quite involved after I retired [in 1984] in planting trees on the tailings," said Mr. PETERS.
Prof. WINTERHALDER served as chair of Sudbury's Vegetation Enhancement Technical Advisory Committee for more than 20 years, initially preparing an inventory and then producing a case study to show that the toxic conditions could be reversed. Beginning in 1978, the Sudbury region established ground cover on more than 3,000 hectares of barren land and cleaned up 1,000 hectares of dead standing debris. They also planted more than a million trees.
W.E. LAUTENBACK, now director of planning services for the city of greater Sudbury, was the staff person on Vegetation Enhancement Technical Advisory Committee. When the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro lauded the region for its environmental stewardship in 1992, Mr. LAUTENBACK compared the honour to winning an Olympic gold medal. Prof. WINTERHALDER was extremely important in the greening of Sudbury, Mr. LAUTENBACK said. "He was the guy who pointed the way [with his research] and he was also very committed to public service. It gave his knowledge back for the public good."
Prof. WINTERHALDER was also generous and patient with his students. "I learned more from him than any other professor," said biologist Peter NOSKO, who did a masters degree at Laurentian.
Although he was meticulous with his field notes and his research papers, he was the epitome of the eccentric absent-minded professor in his personal life. He also seemed to have a lucky angel sitting on his shoulder. "If he were late for a plane it would be delayed," said Karen GANDIER, a former math teacher and his partner for more than 25 years.
On an Asian field trip he was perched 30 metres above the ground in a Malaysian rain forest when he dropped his glasses off the platform into the tree canopy. The next morning he went down to the ground and found them. Another time, he couldn't shift his ancient car into forward gear, so he drove it backwards all the way home from the university. The only tricky part, according to Ms. GANDIER, was figuring out which side of the street to drive on after he turned a corner at the street lights.
A linguist who was proficient in a number of languages including Ojibwa and Russian, he was also an accomplished musician who sang choral music in a Sudbury choir and loved to play the bagpipes. Prof. NOSKO remembers working very late in a lab when he was a student and feeling sorry for himself until he heard the skirl of the bagpipes coming from the herbarium down the hall and realized that he wasn't alone. "It was comforting to know that Keith was in there working, too."
Keith WINTERHALDER was born in Burrington, Shropshire, near the border between Wales and England, the eldest in a family of four children. His father, Frederick Albert WINTERHALDER, was a sports fisherman and a policeman. Originally watchmakers from the Black Forest area near Switzerland, the WINTERHALDERs had emigrated to London four generations earlier. His mother, Ursula May (WILLIAMS,) was a descendant of a long line of Welsh singers and a housewife who, when Prof. WINTERHALDER was a child, kept a cow and chickens and churned her own butter.
He was six years older than Neil, his nearest sibling; 12 years older than his sister, Sandra, and 14 years older than his brother Robin, and he "grew up in beautiful countryside on a smallholding miles from the nearest village," with only a sheepdog as a companion, according to his sister.
After his family moved to Rhayader in mid-Wales, he attended local schools before going on to Llandrindod Wells grammar school. He was "a loved father figure" to his youngest siblings, because their father, who had joined the air ministry police during the war, "worked away" for most of their early lives.
"Rob and I were taken for frequent long walks in the old-fashioned pram through the beautiful Welsh countryside and Keith, even then, seemed to be able to tell us all about nature." He was head boy at his grammar school. "He was always ahead of his peer group at school and was really quite intellectual as a boy -- spending time in the local library reading when his classmates were doing the more usual boyish activities."
After Llandrindod Wells, he went to the University of Wales at Aberystwyth, graduating with first-class honours in botany in 1956 and winning a Commonwealth Scholarship to do graduate work at the University of New England in New South Wales, Australia.
For somebody so intellectually talented and passionate about his subject, Prof. WINTERHALDER lacked a conventional curriculum vitae. He studied and taught botany as a sessional lecturer at University of New England for six years (until 1962) before taking up a three-year posting as a research fellow in botany at the University of Liverpool back in England. In 1963, he accepted a job as a lecturer in botany at the newly incorporated Laurentian University and immediately on arriving he became curator of the university's newly formed herbarium.
He was promoted to assistant professor in 1969 and associate professor in 1980. After his retirement in 1999, he continued working at the University Herbarium as curator emeritus and founded his own company, Wintergreen Ecological Services.
A procrastinator who cared little for credentials, he only belatedly acquired a masters degree in science from University of New England in 1970 and he never completed the dissertation for his Ph. D. degree. The frequently told story is that all his data burned up in a fire in a lab while he was out in the bush doing field research.
Zoologist Vic CLULOW met him in 1968, three years after he arrived at Laurentian. "He could have got a Ph. D at any time, but he never did," said Prof. CLULOW, relating a story about Prof. WINTERHALDER being held in such high esteem by his academic colleagues that he was asked on at least one occasion to serve as an external examiner for a Ph. D thesis even though he didn't technically have the qualification himself. "He also helped a lot of undergraduates and postgraduate students with money, time and space without ever expecting anything back," said Prof. CLULOW.
"He was never boring, but often exasperating," said Ms. GANDIER. They met after Prof. WINTERHALDER rented a house in the early 1970s from a colleague who was away on sabbatical and found a note saying: "For plumbing or dogs, see Karen." They had mutual interests in skiing, dogs, music and the outdoors, but they always maintained separate residences.
"Neither of us could stand living with the other full time. Both of us were real loners," said Ms. GANDIER. Besides, she was a dog person and he was a cat lover. Prof. WINTERHALDER always kept a window open in his basement and stray cats and the occasional raccoon would come in to eat the food he left for them.
About six years ago he was diagnosed with scleroderma, a chronic connective-tissue disorder that is generally classified as an autoimmune rheumatic disease. It affected his hands and feet first, making the joints painful and inflexible, and then progressed to his lungs and compromised his breathing. He never complained, according to Ms. GANDIER. He continued to go on field trips and conferences, attending one this year in a wheel chair.
Keith WINTERHALDER was born in Shropshire, England, on April 14, 1935. He died in Sudbury, Ontario of complications from scleroderma on October 29. He was 70. He is survived by his partner, Karen GANDIER, and by three siblings.
