Jaroslaw OPYRIUK
By Lubomyr LUCIUK and Nadia LUCIUK, Friday, June 3, 2005, Page A22
Accountant, poet, Ukrainian patriot, refugee, chef, gentleman. Born January 8, 1915, in Volosiv, Ukraine. Died May 3 in Kingston, Ontario, of natural causes, aged 90.
He was a shy man, a quiet man, or so we had come to accept. Yet, after his death, as we sifted through his papers (long secreted away in an old cookie tin), much that we had not known about him was exposed.
Jaroslaw, or "Uncle Slawko," as we always called him, was born in a small village, Volosiv, now western Ukraine but then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. He never knew his father, Wasyl, a soldier lost in the Great War. His widowed mother, Ustina (BAGALIUK,) was left in desperate straits. Thankfully the two Zakh sisters, daughters of a wealthy landowner and Czechs by nationality, accepted Jaroslaw as their own, providing him with a somewhat pampered life and his mother with work and shelter.
Ustina later became Petro LUCIUK's wife, and Jaroslaw was joined by a half-brother, Roman, and half-sister, Paraskevia. It was in the interwar period that he also came to know our father, Danylo, the start of a lifelong Friendship that would endure a second world war, exile and resettlement.
His privileged position secured Slawko a better education than the norm. He became an accountant, with a cultivated taste for literature, classical music and poetry, which he also wrote. He rose to a position of administrative responsibility within the Ukrainian co-operative movement and remained working for the betterment of his people under the Polish, Soviet and Nazi occupations. Escaping west in 1944, when it became clear that Ukraine would again fall under the Communist yoke, he and Danylo found asylum in a displaced persons camp, just north of Munich. There he took an active role in cultural life, foreshadowed by his having earlier starred as Taras Bulba in a theatrical rendition of Hohol's famous work.
In 1949, Slawko was selected for emigration to Canada, officially identified as a lumber-camp worker. It is doubtful he would have fared well in northern Ontario's forests. Luckily our mother, Maria, intervened with her supervisor at Kingston's Hotel Dieu Hospital, and secured a kitchen job for "Jerry," as he was known to staff there. He would work there for the next three decades, eventually becoming chef. The certificate of appreciation he received on retirement became one of his most cherished documents, carefully preserved. That several of the nursing sisters he knew decades ago attended his funeral to bid their goodbyes, was one reminder of how appreciated he had been.
Some of our earliest memories are of playing in the hospital's basement, being treated to still-warm apple pie, a perk of having our "Uncle Slawko" in charge of the ovens. Although he became somewhat reclusive in later life, Slawko remained committed to all things Ukrainian -- particularly the arts, the Ukrainian Catholic Church and various charitable and educational foundations. His generosity helped sustain Lubomyr during his doctoral research. When the resulting book appeared, exploring the postwar refugee community's struggle for Ukrainian independence, Slawko was delighted for, always a voracious reader, this tome treated a topic close to his heart. He kept himself informed, continuing to read even after he had to be taken to hospital in Kingston.
Slawko died peacefully, having witnessed the Orange Revolution herald a real chance for democracy in Ukraine. Buried in Canadian soil, he was also covered with a handful of earth brought from Volosiv.
Indeed his course was much like Ukraine's. Both endured and so both are finally free.
Lubomyr and Nadia LUCIUK are Slawko's nephew and niece.

Giuseppe "Joe" LEPORE
By Lubomyr LUCIUK, Tuesday, August 30, 2005, Page A16
Professor, bon vivant, author, founding member of The Royal Winers, soccer enthusiast, friend. Born September 12, 1937, in Caserta, Italy. Died July 27, in Kingston, Ontario, of brain cancer, aged There was a Joe.
And there was a Giuseppe.
I met Joe first. That was at the Royal Military College of Canada, in 1990. He was rather like a "cup of Joe" -- that first cup of coffee in the morning -- stimulating, welcoming, comforting, a straight shooter who eased many into the life of our department at Royal Military College. Most came to look forward to going into work daily, if only because it was such a delight to spend time with Joe. Unpretentious about his learning yet a much-admired teacher and colleague, Joe was a font of good counsel, always gently dispersed.
He quite truly became the soul of our department. If you missed seeing him you would, at the end of the day, leave feeling somehow diminished.
We will all have to get used to that now.
And then there was Giuseppe. Most of us met him somewhat later. He was a European gentleman, a bon vivant, a connoisseur of opera, soccer and of fine food and wines (at this point, he would oblige me to add: "Italian, of course!")
He was a founding member and the guiding spirit of The Royal Winers. That small band, picked from the professorate of the Royal Military College and Queen's University, regularly holds symposia where we enjoy the grape but, even more importantly, share thoughts and hopes, and in doing so becoming better teachers.
(Now I confess that I was less enthusiastic about Giuseppe's love of soccer. I don't play myself and even those who joined him in their daily, noon-time game would agree that it was never clear which team he rooted for, although it was certainly going to be an Italian one. It can finally be revealed that his favourite club was actually Team Milan. And, on a personal note, I can likewise affirm that Giuseppe became particularly partisan in his support for that team after they acquired a new striker by the name of Andriy Shevchenko.)
We all looked forward to decades more in each other's good company. It was in that spirit that Giuseppe selected a motto for The Royal Winers, drawing from the words of Thomas Moore, "though youth gave love and roses, age still leaves us Friends and wine."
And indeed his life was truly filled with love, and many, many roses. He was married twice, to two very remarkable women: Carmen, and Fiora. The former blessed him with a daughter, Leonora, whom he cherished. Leonora, in turn, brought him two grand_sons, Seneca and Alessandro, whom he lived long enough to enjoy. The latter, Fiora, whom he often spoke of as the love of his life, stood true even as illness overtook him, becoming an angel by his side as he journeyed to his all-too-early end.
Our friend did not reach the future we so often talked about, that time in our lives when we expected to together share the wines that we, under his competent direction, had collected and so carefully stored, anticipating what has now become an impossible future.
Of course we still have those aging wines and some of us will, some day, drink them and recall him.
But I know that no matter how good the wines that we set aside are, none of them will ever be quite as delicious or as refreshing, as giving of life and joy, as they would have been if our Joe, our Giuseppe, were still with us to break bread and eat of it, to take the cup and drink from it.
Lubomyr LUCIUK is one of Joe's many Friends.
