Ottawa professor dies attempting Everest
Mountaineering expert, 63, 'really lived life to the fullest'
By Catherine CULLEN, Saturday, April 30, 2005, Page A3
A University of Ottawa professor whose goal was to become the oldest Canadian to scale Mount Everest died of an apparent heart attack yesterday, on the mountain he was determined to conquer.
Friends and colleagues of Sean EGAN said they were shocked and saddened by the sudden passing of the 63-year-old, who was an expert in fitness and mountaineering.
"This was such a surprise for us. We just felt that there was no real fear whatsoever, that he was capable of doing this," said Blaine HOSHIZAKI, director of the School of Human Kinetics at the University of Ottawa, and a former colleague of Dr. EGAN's.
Dr. EGAN spoke to The Globe and Mail via satellite phone from the Everest base camp last week and talked about the challenges of climbing the world's largest mountain.
He said the acidity of the atmosphere was making it difficult to digest food. "We'll try and do the best we can and if it gets too extreme, we'll stop," said Dr. EGAN, who was grappling with a respiratory illness at the time.
Despite the challenges, he said he was focused on attaining his goal.
"You've just got to take it one step at a time. Think of the step ahead and not the entire journey."
This was Dr. EGAN's third trip to the mountain, but his first attempt to climb to the 8,848-metre peak. He planned to leave the rest of his team behind and make the final climb with only a Sherpa guide.
Last week, a respiratory ailment forced him to start heading back down the mountain. Yesterday, he decided he should return to Kathmandu for rest and medical attention. A helicopter was called because Dr. EGAN didn't feel well enough to make the hike to another camp.
Even then, he and fellow climber Harold MAH were optimistic that he would return in a few days and make the climb.
As he was heading toward the helicopter, Dr. EGAN collapsed. The exact cause of his death is still unknown.
Mr. MAH expressed his shock at Dr. EGAN's sudden passing in an on-line diary about the expedition.
"Everyone cried. Sherpas cried; climbers cried; I cried. How could this man who was so strong, die so quickly?" he wrote.
It's tragic Dr. EGAN died in a place that is expected to be safe, said Tim REDPATH, a spokesman for Kanatek Technologies, the company sponsoring Dr. EGAN's climb. Mr. REDPATH had been communicating with the climbing team on a daily basis.
"You know Everest is a dangerous spot and people die every year, but it's on the mountain, not coming down," he said.
Dr. EGAN had been preparing for the climb for three years. He had also visited Everest before -- in 1998 he came as a hiker, and in 2000, he came on a research mission.
"I'm always on the move," he told The Globe last week, adding that he worked out five or six days a week and had been climbing stairs, cycling, lifting weights and hiking to prepare for the climb.
In January, he climbed the highest summit in South America, the 6,962-metre Mount Aconcagua.
He taught fitness classes for 27 years as a professor of human kinetics at the University of Ottawa (including swimming, running, aerobics, muscular training and relaxation), and said he tried hard to practice what he preached.
"I never ask [my students] to do anything I can't do myself," he said.
In addition to setting a new Canadian record for the oldest person to climb Everest, Dr. EGAN was trying to raise money for Child Haven, a charity that supports women and children in several countries.
He was a native of County Clare, Ireland, and was a boxing and kickboxing champion in his home country and France, despite starting the sport "late," he said, at the age of 23. "Most Irish kids love boxing for some reason. That's why they call them the fighting Irish," he joked last week.
He had a PhD in sport psychology and motor learning and had published a book, The Psychology of Health: In Pursuit of Wellness.
Dr. EGAN was "a bon vivant" whose death came as "a horrific shock" to his family and colleagues, said long-time friend Frank REARDON.
"For me he really characterized someone who really lived life to the fullest," Dr. HOSHIZAKI said. "He took no prisoners. He challenged himself and he enjoyed the opportunity to meet these challenges. When I look at this Mount Everest attempt, this was just another part of his life, it was not something that would define it."
Dr. EGAN is survived by his two children, Seamus and Anna, both students at the University of Ottawa.

SCOTT, Terrence Ian Snyder (July 30th, 1937 - February 4th, 2005)
Return unto thy rest, O my Soul; for the Lord hath dealt bountifully with thee. For Thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling. Psalms 116: 7,8
Terry died peacefully at home, with his wife Leanne at his side, after a very brief illness. Originally born in Shawinigan Falls, Quebec, Terry lived fo 30 years as a Mississauga resident. Today he celebrates a loving return to past dear ones waiting for him - grandmother Snyder, mother Cora, and father Thomas. Terrence is survived by his wife, Leanne (née SHARP,) his daughters Adrienne and Laura, his beloved sister Shirley and her husband Ian SMITH, and their five children and ten grandchildren. Terrence - a good man - nothing more, nothing less - loved learning and teaching. As a former Vice President of Montreal Engineering, Terry worked on corporate projects such as Ontario Hydro and Churchill Falls, and later, as an independent consultant, with the clients of Johnson-Diversey and others. He continued with his consulting until recently. He was also a 32nd Degree Mason of the Moore Sovereign. Terry's personal passion was building and flying model airplanes at the Oakville and Brampton Flying Clubs and tinkering in his workshop. Terrence will be cremated and have a Memorial Service at Glen Oaks Memorial Chapel and Reception Centre, 3164 Ninth Line (at Dundas). For service time please contact 905-257-8822. Special appreciation to Kamila SAWEZ of Spectrum Nursing, a pure gift of strength and pitbull focus; Dr. Douglas MAH, for his care and appreciation of Terry as the most challenging character in his practice; and Hospice of Peel (Debbie, Evelyn and Marc - like old Friends.) Thank you to Father Jon BROMLEY of St. Edwards parish, Sister Margaret (ret'd,) Mary MacKINNON, Carol MONDESIR and Michael WHITE/WHYTE for their spiritual guidance; and a true friend in every sense - Peter WLOKA - who was always there without being asked. Through all the Friends that gave their support and care so generously and freely, Terry came to truly believe and know that he was well loved and had touched many lives. Terrence had a child-like curiousity; an inquisitive mind, a quick wit, a generous heart and a loving Trust and Faith in God. He will be sorely missed. May he rest in unconditional Peace, Joy and Love.
Death is nothing at all. I have only slipped away into the next room. I am I, and you are you. Whatever we were to each other, that we still are. Call me by my old familiar name, speak to me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference in your tone, wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together. Pray, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without effect, without the trace of a shadow on it. It is the same as it ever was; there is no unbroken continuity. Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner. All is Well. Henry Scott Holland 1847-1918 Canon of St. Paul's Cathedral. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Model Aeronautics Association of Canada, Alcoholics Anonymous or the Hospice of Peel.

McKENZIE, Hon. Lloyd George, Q.C.
Was born August 20, 1918, died October 29, 2005, at Lion's Gate Hospital, North Vancouver, after suffering a stroke. He was born in Penticton, British Columbia, moved to Victoria with his family at age 10 when his father became Minister of Mines and Labour in the Tolmie Administration, and except while on military service and at law school lived there for 46 years. After two years at Victoria College, he enlisted in the Westminster Regiment and married Betty (née MAHAREY) before leaving for Europe, where he served as an infantry officer throughout the Italian campaign. On his return, in 1945, he enrolled in the first class at the University of British Columbia Faculty of Law, of which he became class President, articled to J. Howard Harman, Q.C., and thereafter practised for 26 years with the Harman firm. He was President of the Victoria Bar, a Bencher of the Law Society of British Columbia and for 19 years a Governor of the University of Victoria, including a term as Chairman. He had a widely-varied practice, appearing for the Crown or accused in numerous criminal prosecutions and acting for the Province in notable civil suits, including the British Columbia Electric takeover litigation and several major taxation cases, before being appointed in 1974 to the British Columbia Supreme Court, which required that he move to Vancouver. During 1977-78 he was Chairman of the Royal Commission on the British Columbia Railway. After retirement from the bench, in 1993, he acted for 10 years as Information Officer for the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court, a position without precedent in which he dealt daily with the media, often on important issues about which sitting judges cannot speak. He is survived by Betty, his treasured companion for more than 60 years; also by Anthony McKENZIE, nephew, Barbara (Mark) PIMLOTT, cousin, and extended family: Frank and Patricia SMITH, Andrea SMITH, Clyde (Linda) SMITH, Kathleen (Lyn) BROOKS and Frances (Ian) MURRAY. In accordance with Lloyd's wishes there will be no service. The family asks that no flowers be sent.

MAHER, Edward Gerard " Gerry"
Retired Reinsurance Executive. Devoted husband, loving father and grandfather, beloved brother, uncle and friend, passed away suddenly November 26, 2005 at Lee Memorial Hospital, Fort Myers, Florida as a result of injuries sustained from a fall. Gerry was a model of faith, fortitude and love of family. He was a respected business executive, having graduated from Fordham in 1958, and worked for Guy Carpenter Reinsurance for over 35 years. In his later years, he was responsible for opening branches in many countries all over the world. Eighteen of his years with Guy Carpenter were spent in Toronto, Canada, where he raised his children. He forged many Friendships among his colleagues, here at home and internationally. Gerry was known to be a model of good stewardship in all aspects of his professional endeavours. When he retired, he offered his knowledge through volunteer efforts with Service Corps of Retired Executives, and parish finance administration for the parishes he attended. Gerry was a wondeful family man. He was born to John and Anne (DURCAN) MAHER, October 16, 1927, in the shadows of Mt. Nephin in Co. Mayo, Ireland. In his youth he participated in many athletic and scholastic adventures including boxing and drama. Gerry came to America in 1947, and worked for his Uncle Jack DURCAN while putting himself through college. He stayed very close to his 14 siblings in Ireland, England and New York. In 1952 he met the love of his life, Eileen STEEL, who survives him. They were married June 2, 1956. Together they raised seven children. Through perseverance and sacrifice, Gerry assured that each of his children could go to college. He often reminded his children of the value and importance of a liberal arts education. Gerry's greatest delight came from watching his grown children start their own families; he was very proud of his 19 grandchildren. He hoped to positively impact the next generation through family gatherings where many humorous stories were shared along with an appreciation of the family history and heritage. He was, above all else, a man of faith, devoted to daily reception of the Eucharist and recitation of the rosary. He was a member of St. Andrew Catholic Church in Cape Coral, Corpus Christi Catholic Church in Chatham, New Jersey, and St. Andrew's Catholic Church in Oakville, Ontario. He actively offered his time, talent and treasure to the church, especially through his volunteer work with the Corpus Christi Parish; as the mediator of the parish pastoral council at St. Andrew in Cape Coral; the St. Vincent de Paul Society, A.F.C.A.A.M. (African Caribbean American Ministry) and as a lector and Eucharistic Minister. He was a 4th Degree member of the Knights of Columbus. The best lessons of faith were taught by his lived example. In 2002, his son Brian died tragically, and this left a hole in Gerry's heart that never mended. We are comforted to know that father and son are now united in the presence of Christ, and that Gerry's heart no longer aches. We have lost our husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. Our consolation is our faith in the day we will see him again, in his eternal happiness. In his 78 years Gerry touched the minds, hearts and souls of many. He was preceded in death by his parents, his brother Seamus MAHER of Manchester, England, and his son Brian MAHER of Charlotte, North Carolina. He is survived by his wife of 49 years, Eileen; children Kevin (Lucy) MAHER of Chatham, New Jersey Phyllis (David J.) FLORIAN of Kalamazoo, Michigan; Diane (Philip) SARIKAS of Beaverton, Oregon; Clare (David) EMERY of Calgary, Canada; Carol (William) MURRAY of Chatham, New Jersey; Patrick (Kim) MAHER of Beaverton, Oregon; his daughter-in-law Barbara (Davren) MAHER; nineteen grandchildren; and thirteen of his siblings, Noreen GAVIN, Anthony MAHER, Kathleen MAHER, Muiradack MAHER, all of Ireland; Grace COCK, Julia GORZKIEWICZ of England; Anne DINNEGAN of Cape Coral; Patrick MAHER, John MAHER, Frank MAHER, Theresa COY
