TURNBULL, William Clarke
Bill TURNBULL (Mr. T.) Passed away peacefully on Sunday, February 13, 2005 at the Queen Elizabeth II Halifax Infirmary Hospital in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Born in Hamilton, Ontario on June 20, 1925, Bill was raised and educated in Toronto, graduating from University College of the University of Toronto in 1950. After working several years with the Robert Simpson Company, Bill joined the Federal Government in 1965. Most of his career was spent with Parks Canada from which he retired in 1994 as Director General of the Atlantic Region. Bill had also been Regional Director in Calgary, Winnipeg, Cornwall and Quebec, the other four regions of Parks Canada, the only person to hold all five senior operational positions in the history of Parks Canada. He leaves many Friends throughout Canada and will be sorrowly missed for his wisdom and his sage advice - He was one in a million! Special thanks to Marge and Barry BOUTILIER, Mike LEVERMAN, Joe O'BRIEN and Bob EATON for their dedication and loyalty to Bill over the years, as Bill was confined to his home and depended solely upon his dear Friends to assist him with all his personal needs and shopping. Bill was predeceased by his loving sister, Marie McCRACKEN in 1990, and is survived by his nephew, Steve McCRACKEN (Lorraine) and their children Sarah and Bill, who reside in Kilbride, Ontario. To quote Bill, 'Life is a big circle, dying is part of living, and when your time is up, it's time to go, and there is nothing you can do about it.' At Bill's request, cremation has taken place; there will be no funeral or memorial service. Arrangements for cremation have been entrusted to Ferguson's Funeral Home, Montague, Prince Edward Island Burial will be at Mount Hermon Cemetery, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia at a later date.

FELKAI, Julius
In loving memory of Julius FELKAI, 61 years, of Toronto, Goulais River, Heron Bay, Copper Cliff, Lively, Tillsonburg, and Budapest, who passed away Monday, January 24th, 2005 at 11: 55 pm. He was a wonderful man -- generous beyond measure, with a compassionate heart. He reached out to strangers and readily helped many that crossed his path. He valued and loved children and was patient. His unique, witty, offbeat sense of humour has given his family memories that will be remembered for generations. He was born in 1943 Budapest, Hungary and immigrated to Tillsonburg, Ontario at the age of 13 years old. He attended Ryerson College and obtained a Civil Engineering degree. His work (construction sub-contracting business) took him throughout Northern Ontario including North Bay, Sudbury, Elliot Lake, Timmins, Sault Ste. Marie, Marathon, Hemlo, Manitouwadge, and Thunder Bay. His surviving family, who will cherish his memory, miss him deeply. He was a loving father to Sally -- expectant mother (partner Troy HANSEN,) Todd, Stephanie, Thomas (partner Julia WOOD,) Susan (fiancee Brant LEVERT) and grand-daughter Ruby. He is survived by his wife, Ruth, by his mother, Magda STEINER, and by his siblings Frank and Maggie. He has been welcomed into God's house by the saving grace of Jesus and is at peace after many years of discomfort from diabetes, high blood pressure and the long-term effects of a vehicle accident. He was admitted to hospital after falling on ice on January 14, 2005 and ten days later suffered cardiac arrest from septic shock. The funeral mass will be held on Saturday, January 29th at 10: 30 am at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church, 78 Clifton Road (N.W. corner of Mount Pleasant and St. Clair Avenue), and he will be laid to rest in St. Ladislaus Cemetary in Courtland, Ontario. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Canadian Diabetes Foundation.

BLAKE, Beatrice May
At the age of 95 and in complete peace, May BLAKE passed away on October 19, 2005. May was care-giver extraordinaire to many children who remember her fondly and with love throughout their adulthood. She was trained as a nanny in England and joined her first family as a caregiver as a young teenager, no older than 15. She emigrated to Canada about 1932. Throughout her early years as a nanny in Canada, May befriended and looked out for other British nannies who would come to Toronto on two-year visas to care for the children of Canadian families. May brought them into the community of other nannies, made sure that they became acquainted with Toronto and sent them home again at the end of two years with farewell parties.
The adults for whom she cared as children and that she called "her charges" owe their values of honesty, integrity, generosity towards others and good humour to her teachings as they grew from infancy through childhood into eventual maturity. May was always proud of the achievements of "her charges" and followed their successes in life, sending congratulations their way and still providing advice as they made their path through life.
May has been a staunch supporter of Saint Margaret's Anglican Church for more than 70 years. Up until two years ago, she was a regular supporter of Saint Margaret's annual Christmas bazaar and rummage sales. She was a frequent visitor to the sick and shut-ins of her congregation. May BLAKE's life was a happy and fulfilled one.
May will be fondly remembered by her many Friends at her Church, including Muriel CAESAR, Len and Jean SOUTH, Trevor and Muriel McCONNELL and Jean FRASER.
She will also be lovingly remembered by "her charges" currently living in Canada, Edward BULMAN and his sister Elizabeth, Nadine, Jon and Paul LEVIN, Sean and Kalen McCOWAN, Denise DELLIO, and Alexandra and Laura ROBINSON. Jean SHAWN, George LEVIN, Anna JOHNSTON (formerly McCOWAN), Perry and Rae DELLIO, Michael ROBINSON and Dr. Gail ROBINSON, and all remember the fine and loving care May BLAKE provided for their children and the tremendous contribution she made to their family life.
Those who wish to celebrate May BLAKE's life may join together at Saint Margaret's Anglican Church, 53 Burnaby Boulevard, Toronto on Monday, October 24, 2005 at 1 p.m. May loved children all of her life and donations in her memory to Save the Children Canada, 300-4141 Yonge Street, Toronto M2P 2A8, would be greatly appreciated.

In Memory Sleeping peacefully in his Tamarac, Florida home, Mervyn "Mickey" LEVINE passed away in the early hours of April 4, 2005. In his 86th year, Mickey led a full and valued life, contributing greatly to every community in which he lived. His guiding principle was always to leave the world a better place for having been here. We take great pride in knowing he did just that. Born in Duluth, Minnesota, an Army Veteran of World War 2, Mickey retired with honors to open the record store: Melody Lanes. Then big-band leader Mickey operated the store by day and played at the Hotel Duluth's Black Bear lounge at night. A consummate showman Mickey brought a sense of magic and pizzazz to everything he did. Whether to the Auto, Home or Boat shows that he produced across the United States

LEVINE, Samuel Robert " Sam"
On Saturday, January 22, 15 days after celebrating his 90th birthday: Sam LEVINE, professional musician, musicians' advocate and raconteur passed away after a long illness.
Sam was a long-time member of the Toronto Symphony's double bass section. He was also a proud President Emeritus and Life Member of the Toronto Musicians' Association, Local 149, American Federation of Musicians.
Sam spent much of his career working to improve the security and quality of life for Canadian professional musicians. He fought hard to keep live music alive when disco threatened to make it disappear.
Born in Toronto in 1915, Sam was the son of Russian- Jewish immigrants Morris and Annie LEVINE. When they were swept away by the Spanish Flu, his aunt, the late Dora Nepom, courageously stepped in and became "Mother" to four- year-old Sam and his younger sister Laura.
Sam graduated from Harbord Collegiate, played guitar, banjo and bass in various bands including the Trump Davidson Orchestra. With partners he opened the Onyx Club on Church Street, Toronto's first jazz club. It survived long enough to host Duke Ellington in an after-hours jam.
With World War 2, Sam enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force, spending the war years in a musical show, "The Blackouts", travelling up the British Columbia coast to Alaska and overseas, entertaining the allied troops.
Initially, Sam was stationed in Ottawa, where he met the magnificent Tula MARLIN, a secretary in the War Department. After a courtship conducted mostly by mail, they married in 1946, set up house in Toronto and started their family.
Sam graduated from the Royal Conservatory of Music and joined the Toronto Symphony's bass section. Through the Fifties and Sixties he continued to play club and studio dates along with weddings and bar mitzvahs.
He became a union activist, serving for years as a vice-president, then president of Local 149 after retiring from the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. To support symphonic musicians, he helped found the Association of Canadian Orchestras.
Among Sam's greatest loves were his family, his music, fellow musicians, a good story, television sports, the City of Toronto, and the Scarborough bungalow that was our family home for 50 years. He hated hypocrisy, injustice, interruptions, unkempt lawns, boiled chicken, deejays and disco.
Beneath Sam's private and dignified persona of strong commitments and high principles was a fun-loving man with a mad sense of humour. At the family dinner table, gems from his fund of jokes, memories and funny stories nearly always followed dessert.
As a father Sam was straightforward, demanding, supportive, adoring and inspiring. He liked to say his children never took any of his advice...but he knew better. He may have been wrong in 1959 (and every year thereafter) when he said that "rock and roll is dead", but he was right about almost everything else.
Happy and proud to have shared Sam's life and sadly mourning his death are Tula, his beloved wife and companion of 59 years, daughter Anita DAHLIN of Brechin, Ontario, son Mike LEVINE and his wife, Rosie, of Toronto. He was the cherished grandpa of Corinna DAHLIN of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and Matt LEVINE of Chicago. He is dearly loved and missed by his only sister, Laura EDELL of Syracuse, New York her sons Mark of Las Vegas, David of New York City and their children, as well as by many cousins, nieces and nephews.
Sam was a treasured member of Tula's family - the Marlins of Hamilton, the Sauve and Barnaby families of Ottawa will all miss him.
He is also remembered by many dear Friends from his musical past, including former Toronto Symphony players Marilyn MEYER, Ruth BUDD and Murray GINSBERG, all of Toronto.
Our family gratefully thanks the staff of Providence Centre for their care over the last six months.
In Sam's memory, please enjoy the live music of your choice.

Norman LEVINE, Novelist And Poet: 1923-2005
Known as a writer's writer, his short stories have been compared with work by Alice Munro and Mavis Gallant
By Rebecca CALDWELL, Thursday, June 16, 2005, Page S11
Canada made writer Norman LEVINE; a cool reception in Canadian publishing made him leave the country. Now, the next generation's writers are rediscovering his work.
A gifted novelist and a poet, Mr. LEVINE was best known in writing circles for his short stories. His 10 collections are often referred to with the same reverence as work by Alice Munro or Mavis Gallant.
"He was a writer's writer," said Toronto-based Newfoundlander Michael WINTER, the author of The Big Why, who met him in 1993 when Mr. LEVINE was in Saint John's for a reading. The two kept up a regular correspondence. On Monday, Mr. WINTER received a letter from Mr. LEVINE thanking him for an article about his passion for Mr. LEVINE's work that appeared in Brick magazine, the Canadian literary journal. Mr. WINTER counts Mr. LEVINE's sophisticated, sparse modernism in collections such as Thin Ice (1979) as a direct influence on his writing.
"He had a strange relationship with [his] Canadian audience," said Mr. WINTER. " His style is not one that appeals to a lot of people, but a lot of writers marvel at his talent.... His economy of so little saying so much -- when you try to write like that, you realize how hard it is to capture things accurately and truthfully with very few words."
Mr. LEVINE is, however, best known to the public for his controversial 1958 travelogue-social critique Canada Made Me, based on research from a three-month cross-country journey in 1956. The work was not complimentary to a country then stumbling awkwardly toward its cultural and national adolescence.
"I wondered why I felt so bitter about Canada," he wrote in Canada Made Me. "It was foolish to believe that you can take the throwouts, the rejects, the human kickabouts from Europe and tell them: Here is your second chance. Here you can start a new life. But no one ever mentioned the price you had to pay, and how much of yourself you have to betray."
Although it had been commissioned by Putnam and Sons in Britain and by McClelland and Stewart in Canada, M&S publisher Jack McClelland was so aghast at the manuscript that he would print only 500 copies to honour the contract. Canada Made Me would not have a major Canadian release until 1979.
"It was a very unboosterish book that did him in with all the powers that were in Canada," said John METCALF, a friend of Mr. LEVINE as well as his later editor at the Porcupine's Quill, which republished several volumes by Mr. LEVINE, including Canada Made Me in 1993.
"Norman realized that Canadian publishing was closed to him, so he went to England." He lived there for the next 30 years, "where he wrote amazingly inventive short stories and he was heralded as a genius all over England and Europe." In Canada, however, nobody took any notice whatsoever, said Mr. METCALF.
"In part, it was because of the very fact that he had chosen to go away, but also [because of] the rise of Canadian nationalism as a sort of all-consuming force in intellectual and cultural matters in the country. It basically declared both Norman and Mavis GALLANT as traitors to the country. Norman paid the price."
Born to Orthodox Jewish parents in Ottawa in 1923, Mr. LEVINE was raised in the city's predominantly Jewish neighbourhood of Lower Town. He served in the Royal Canadian Air Force as a tail gunner during the Second World War, returning to Canada to study English literature at McGill University. After earning his B.A. and M.A., he won a scholarship to King's College, London, to pursue his PhD on the works of Proust and T.S. Eliot.
Mr. LEVINE had married Englishwoman Margaret PAYNE in 1952, and the two settled in St. Ives, where they would raise three daughters and befriend the burgeoning artistic community -- including abstract expressionist painters such as Francis Bacon, Terry Frost and Patrick Heron. The new intellectual circle would have a profound impact on his work.
"He was around a great deal of technical talk all the time about technique, which he transferred from visual terms into terms of rhetoric, so he was absorbing the lessons of painters and ways of looking and forging his own style," said Mr. METCALF. "He was forging a style that was quite new, fragmentary and imagistic. He was stripping ruthlessly down to the bone, the language got cleaner and cleaner. He denied all the conventional expectations of rhythms."
Living in St. Ives, and not in London or Paris, also gave him a chance to cultivate his outsider's perspective, said Mr. METCALF another of his motivations for leaving Canada. "He'd made the decision to leave on cultural grounds, but also on the grounds that he was an outsider in every aspect of his personality: as a Jew, as a writer, he liked to be on the margins of things, looking in."
Regardless of his reputation within Canada, Mr. LEVINE's writing was treasured outside of the country, particularly in Germany, where Nobel laureate Heinrich Boll worked on translations of Mr. LEVINE's stories for German editions.
Apart from a brief return to Toronto in the early eighties, and some time in France with his second wife Anne SARGINSON, from whom he later separated (Margaret PAYNE died of cancer in 1978,) Mr. LEVINE he made his life in Britain. However, he never forgot the country of his birth, and the country was apparently beginning to remember him. In 2002, he was named the winner of the Writers Trust of Canada Matt Cohen Award, only the second recipient of the prestigious lifetime achievement award. His last book, The Ability to Forget, was published in 2003.
"It was odd that having lived in Britain for 50 years, he still considered himself very much a Canadian. Canada was his world. I think he found it very difficult that he wasn't accepted, but he understood why," said his daughter Cassie FLINT, a high-school English teacher who lived near her father in Barnard Castle, Country Durham.
"He was thrilled by talk from Canadian publishers interested in reissuing his books," she said.
His death came as a shock, said Ms. FLINT. Although he had been seeing a consultant for some heart problems and suffered from blackouts for the past 18 months, he was quite fit and active, and was even at work on another short story.
Norman LEVINE was born in Ottawa on October 22, 1923. He died in County Durham, England, on Tuesday of a suspected heart attack following a fall. He was 81.

I Remember -- Norman LEVINE
By Jane TUDOR, Monday, June 20, 2005, Page S8
Ottawa -- Norman LEVINE's obituary appeared on June 16.
In the summer of 1971, I arrived from swingin' London as a fresh, raw immigrant offering my talents to a country that I knew little of except as a Commonwealth partner. My search for work in Ottawa was not too successful, but the sun shone and I could always go "home." I invaded the now lost Carnegie Public Library for something to read as I lay on the lawns of Parliament Hill, and there I found Norman LEVINE. I read everything I could find from this author with the ability to introduce me to the foibles and nuances of my chosen residence. The city of Ottawa came alive Murphy Gamble's store, Murray's coffee shops, the streets of Lowertown -- so very different from my own experiences, but teeming with observations that I found absorbing, stimulating, and challenging.
Mr. LEVINE's writings provided me with a reference point for learning more, and they continue to provide me with challenge as I reflect upon the "agony and the ecstasy" that is Canada.

He believed in the ideals of social justice and was a member of the Workmen's Circle from his arrival in Canada until his death. He was above all gentle, generous and kind. May you sleep peacefully and may the earth lie gently upon you our dear and gentle uncle.

LEVINE, Samuel Robert " Sam"
On Saturday, January 22, 2005, 15 days after celebrating his 90th birthday, Sam LEVINE, professional musician, musicians' advocate and raconteur passed away after a long illness. Sam was a long-time member of the Toronto Symphony's double bass section. He was also a proud President Emeritus and Life Member of the Toronto Musicians' Association, Local 149, American Federation of Musicians. Sam spent much of his career working to improve the security and quality of life for Canadian professional musicians. He fought hard to keep live music alive when disco threatened to make it disappear. Born in Toronto in 1915, Sam was the son of Russian-Jewish immigrants Morris and Annie LEVINE. When they were swept away by the Spanish Flu, his aunt, the late Dora NEPOM, courageously stepped in and became "Mother" to four-year-old Sam and his younger sister Laura. Sam graduated from Harbord Collegiate, played guitar, banjo and bass in various bands including the Trump Davidson Orchestra. With partners he opened the Onyx Club on Church Street, Toronto's first jazz club. It survived long enough to host Duke Ellington in an after-hours jam. With World War 2, Sam enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force, spending the war years in a musical show, "The Blackouts", travelling up the British Columbia coast to Alaska and overseas, entertaining the allied troops. Initially, Sam was stationed in Ottawa, where he met the magnificent Tula MARLIN, a secretary in the War Department. After a courtship conducted mostly by mail, they married in 1946, set up house in Toronto and started their family. Sam graduated from the Royal Conservatory of Music and joined the Toronto Symphony's bass section. Through the Fifties and Sixties he continued to play club and studio dates along with weddings and bar mitzvahs. He became a union activist, serving for years as a vice-president, then president of Local 149 after retiring from the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. To support symphonic musicians, he helped found the Association of Canadian Orchestras. Among Sam's greatest loves were his family, his music, fellow musicians, a good story, television sports, the City of Toronto, and the Scarborough bungalow that was our family home for 50 years. He hated hypocrisy, injustice, interruptions, unkempt lawns, boiled chicken, deejays and disco. Beneath Sam's private and dignified persona of strong commitments and high principles was a fun-loving man with a mad sense of humour. At the family dinner table, gems from his fund of jokes, memories and funny stories nearly always followed dessert. As a father Sam was straightforward, demanding, supportive, adoring and inspiring. He liked to say his children never took any of his advice... but he knew better. He may have been wrong in 1959 (and every year thereafter) when he said that "rock and roll is dead", but he was right about almost everything else. Happy and proud to have shared Sam's life and sadly mourning his death are Tula, his beloved wife and companion of 59 years, daughter Anita DAHLIN of Brechin, Ontario, son Mike LEVINE and his wife, Rosie, of Toronto. He was the cherished grandpa of Corinna DAHLIN of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and Matt LEVINE of Chicago. He is dearly loved and missed by his only sister, Laura EDELL of Syracuse, New York, her sons Mark of Las Vegas, David of New York City and their children, as well as by many cousins, nieces and nephews. Sam was a treasured member of Tula's family - the Marlins of Hamilton, the Sauve and Barnaby families of Ottawa will all miss him. He is also remembered by many dear Friends from his musical past, including former Toronto Symphony players Marilyn MEYER, Ruth BUDD and Murray GINSBERG, all of Toronto. Our family gratefully thanks the staff of Providence Centre for their care over the last six months. In Sam's memory, please enjoy the live music of your choice.
