MORRISSEY, Hon. Martin Thomas Joseph
Of London, Ontario, passed away peacefully on October 16, 2005, with his family at his side at the age of 84. Martin is survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Mary Kathleen MORRISSEY (nee CROCKER,) daughter Theresa and husband Stephen JARRETT, daughter Elizabeth and husband David BLACK, son Paul and wife Mary Jo, and daughter Deidre and husband Malcolm RUDDOCK. He is survived by two sisters, Josephine BRESNAHAN (Barry's Bay) and Bernadette BELANGER (Hamilton.) Martin is predeceased by his parents, Elizabeth Agnes (née O'CONNOR) and Martin Lawrence, and siblings, Leonard, Irene, Jimmy, and Rose. Grandpa will be sadly missed by grandchildren Adam, Michael, and Peter JARRETT; Jennifer and John BLACK; Patrick, Joseph, Brendan, James, John, Peter, and Luke MORRISSEY; and Callum and Emma RUDDOCK. He will also be missed by his large extended family who were always in his thoughts and prayers. Born August 29, 1921, in Madawaska, Ontario, Martin was the youngest of seven. Because his father died before his birth, Martin and his siblings looked to eldest brother Leonard to help their mother manage the farm. Martin's childhood was filled with hard work and laughter, and the simple pleasures of the Madawaska Valley. Martin enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1941; upon discharge in 1945, he enrolled at Osgoode Hall Law School and was called to the Ontario Bar in 1949. Martin was employed at the Toronto firm of Slaght, Ferguson, Boland and Slaght, then in 1950 moved to London, joining the firm of Little Calder, which became Little, Morrissey, Gillespie and Reeves. There his practice was focused primarily on municipal and education law, as well as civil litigation and solicitors' work. Martin was appointed Queen's Counsel in 1974 and served as President of the Middlesex Bar Association (1975). In 1980 Martin was appointed to the Bench, serving the Peel Region in the County and District Court of Ontario and subsequently the Ontario Court (General Division) until 1994. Martin served his community through many organizations, including Clarkson Community Volunteers (1993-01), Credit Valley Hospital (Board of Directors, 1981-84), St. Leonard's House (Board of Directors, 1972-74), St. Leonard's Society of Canada (1972-75), House of Providence for Senior Citizens (Marian Villa) (Board Chair, 1960-62), Irish Benevolent Society (President, 1959-60), Canadian Federation of Newman Clubs (Vice President 1949-50), Knights of Columbus (Member, Fourth Degree), and the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Ontario (London Chapter) and Ontario Credit Union League (Honorary Solicitor). In 2001 Martin and Mary returned to London to be closer to family and Cedar Shadows, the Port Franks cottage that is a cherished legacy for his family. Martin was singularly proud of his family, from his wife's artistic talents and his children's professional accomplishments, to his grandchildren's educational and sports achievements, and his family is so proud of what Martin accomplished through hard work and determination. Visitation will be held at James A. Harris Funeral Home, 220 St. James St. at Richmond, London, on Thursday, October 20 from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. The funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Michael's Church, 515 Cheapside St. at Maitland, London, on Friday, October 21 at 11 a.m. (private interment). Parish Prayers will be held in the funeral home on Thursday at 3 p.m. Thanks to all who have supported Martin and his family over the last three years, particularly Dr. SWIFT and the staff in the Palliative Care Unit at London Health Sciences Centre, the staff at the Adam Linton Dialysis Unit, the staff at the London Regional Cancer Centre, and the Cancer Society volunteer drivers; also, we want to thank all of the caring St. Elizabeth nurses and personal support workers (particularly Sam, Bob, Nick, and Mike), and the staff of Sir Adam Beck Condominium. As an expression of sympathy, memorial donations may be made to Sisters of Saint Joseph Hospitality Centre, 707 Dundas Street, London, Ontario N5W 2Z5, or the Canadian Cancer Society.

Far too beautiful a thing to drag into the dust

John BAND, Executive And Art Collector (1915-2005)
Navy officer who hunted U-boats during the Second World War returned home to become an insurance broker and a collector of Canadian art
By Sandra MARTIN, Saturday, September 24, 2005, Page S9
Although he was a distinguished veteran and a former insurance executive, John BAND found his true calling in companionship and art. He was passionate about collecting, gardening, fitness, the navy, red wine and crossword puzzles. A good listener, he was the master of drawing people out.
Born into a family of prominent Canadian art collectors, he inherited his parents' eye and their zeal for collecting. "I wish I knew the first time I shook his hand," said art collector Ken THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, chairman of The Globe and Mail. "I think it was in the mid-50s and it must have been about art."
For half a century, the two men discussed upcoming auction sales, although their Friendship meant they never bid against each other. "I respected his judgment on paintings," Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said. Whenever Mr. BAND was "adamant" about a picture, such as The Steamship Quebec, painted by Cornelius Krieghoff in 1853, "I jolly well bought it. There wasn't going to be any doubt about that," Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON admitted.
"He was always around the corner from my house and up here," tapping his forehead with his finger, "he was right beside me all the time," Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said. "I never got along with anybody better."
Mr. BAND's love of art was ingrained growing up in a home where Arthur LISMER and Fred VARLEY were frequent guests and painting was a major dinner table topic. "John had a very keen eye for choice works and he sometimes went about acquiring them as though he was a detective," said Lisa Balfour BOWEN, a family friend and art critic. "To my knowledge, he was filling gaps in his collection virtually until the time of his death."
There was nothing passive about Mr. BAND. "He spoke his mind, but it was something that you welcomed. There were no shades. He was always direct and clear," said Dennis REID, chief curator of the Art Gallery of Ontario. "I have to say I loved him."
John Trumbull BAND was the eldest child and only son of insurance broker and art collector Charles Shaw BAND and his wife, Helen WARREN. His parents moved to New York in 1914 when Mr. BAND was transferred to the American office of James Carruthers and Co. Mr. BAND was born there a year later.
While they lived in the United States, the BANDs bought canvases painted by the Hudson River Valley artists. They sold that collection when they returned to Toronto in 1923 with John and his younger sisters, Priscilla, Barbara and Helen.
"They wanted to collect what was important in the life of Canada their country and the countryside they knew," said Mr. BAND's stepdaughter, management consultant and corporate director Jalynn BENNETT. The BANDs bought an island in Georgian Bay and became good Friends with several members of the Group of Seven.
"Their home was a testament to the art of the Twenties and Thirties in Canada," said Mr. REID. " The dining room was stupendous because it was all Lawren HARRIS's Arctic sketches. There must have been 10 of them."
Two years after the BANDs moved back to Toronto, they sent John to Trinity College School in Port Hope. He was 10. His daughter Sarah, an entrepreneur and retailer, has his first school report framed in her bathroom. "He is rather backward for his age, but he has ability and is a neat and careful worker," his teacher wrote.
In 1929, the year of the stock-market crash, the school's main building burned down. Hard economic times and the school's rebuilding difficulties persuaded his parents to withdraw him in 1931, the year he would have graduated, and send him to Jarvis Collegiate Institute in Toronto instead.
Nevertheless, Mr. BAND was a committed Trinity College School old boy. With his family's help, he gave himself an 80th birthday gift in 1995 by endowing an annual history prize.
Mr. BAND went to work in 1937 for Irish and Molson, a firm of insurance brokers that became Marsh and McLennan and later Marsh Canada. After war broke out, he enlisted in the Navy and was commissioned a Sub-Lieutenant in the Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve in 1941. About the same time, he met Mona MORROW (later CAMPBELL,) daughter of financier and company director Frederick MORROW. They married in 1942.
During the war, Mr. BAND served on H.M.C.S. Swansea, a river-class frigate in 1943 as first lieutenant. The ship, which was known as a happy and successful one, helped to sink three German U-boats in the North Atlantic in March and April of 1944 and assisted in essential enemy sweeps before the invasion of Normandy in June of 1944. He transferred to H.M.C.S. Stone Town, another frigate, with the rank of Lieutenant Commander, that November and served as its commanding officer until August of 1945.
For decades afterward, Mr. BAND caught up with his wartime cronies at an annual navy lunch he organized, inviting specialist speakers on military subjects. One of the regulars was Tony GRIFFIN, another distinguished naval veteran. "There were very few officers I could put in the same class as John BAND," he said this week. "He knew how to handle ships and men and he had a keen appreciation of the Navy."
Michael WHITBY, senior naval historian at the Department of National Defence, agrees with that assessment. "He was one of the typical Canadians who volunteered to go fight the war and who did an outstanding job." Mr. BAND's strength was to lead by gentle persuasion and quiet example. On Swansea, for example, he insisted that classical music was played on Sundays.
When peace came, he went back to Toronto and to Marsh and McLennan, working mainly on Toronto establishment accounts until he retired in 1980 as a senior executive. He needlessly regretted that the war disrupted his plans to go to university, according to Paul O'DONOGHUE, a business colleague from Marsh and McLennan who became a lifelong friend. "He was the best-informed man I ever met."
Mr. BAND and his wife Mona had three children, John, Sarah and Victoria (Vickie), but the marriage fell apart in the mid-1950s. After an acrimonious divorce and custody settlement, Mr. BAND married Elizabeth Lumbers ROGERS, a widow with two children (Jalynn BENNETT and Jennifer ROGERS,) in 1959.
His son lived with them and his daughters stayed with their mother. "We weren't allowed to see him for a long time," said his daughter Sarah, who became extremely close to her father in the past few decades. "He was my best friend," she said this week. "We talked four times a day."
As a stepfather, Mr. BAND was "warm and caring and curious about our lives without being intrusive," says Ms. BENNETT, who was 15 when her mother remarried.
He was very outgoing and had a keen sense of whimsy. He once jokingly confided plans for his funeral: a procession down Bay Street at noon with a Brinks truck following the hearse with a big sign on top saying: "Who says you can't take it with you?"
Some years after his second wife Betty died in 1992, Mr. BAND formed a new attachment with Patty FISCHER, the former wife of industrialist Michael DEGROOTE, owner of Laidlaw Transport and the Hamilton Tiger Cats.
Mr. BAND turned 90 in late August. He celebrated his birthday two weeks ago at a party he organized himself at the Toronto Hunt Club, where he'd belonged ever since his mother had bought him a membership for his 20th birthday.
His friend Ken THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON tried to give him a small J.E.H. MacDonald painting of the family island in Georgian Bay as a birthday gift. Knowing the value of the painting, Mr. BAND refused to accept it, although he delighted in pointing out familiar landmarks. Finally, he agreed to "borrow" the painting after attaching a note to the back saying it belonged to Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON. He only had a few days to enjoy it. The painting has now come back to Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, layered with "priceless" sentimental value. He plans to hang it near his desk in his office until he gives it eventually to the Art Gallery of Ontario. "But that paper is going to stay with that picture," he insisted. "That's a condition."
Last Tuesday, Sarah BAND took her father to a medical appointment where he learned that his cancer was terminal. He went home, made a final "to do" list to settle his affairs and then "crumpled."
John Trumbull BAND was born in New York on August 25, 1915. He died on Sunday of metastasized sarcoma. He is survived by one sister, three children, two stepchildren, 10 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.
A private family burial took place on Thursday. A memorial service is planned for September 30 at noon at St. Paul's Anglican Church in Toronto.

Age did not dim advocate's fire
Mae HARMAN worked tirelessly for social justice
Her north Toronto house was the site of many a meeting
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Mae HARMAN reached her full potential only when she retired almost 20 years ago and became a full-time advocate.
She had certainly been successful as a supervisor at University Settlement House and for years as a member of the University of Windsor's social work department, but she found her real vocation as a straight-talking letter-writing, speech-making, banner-bearing thorn in many a government's side.
"Mae has been a model advocate for me and for other members of the Canadian Pensioners Concerned," said Bruce MUTCH, who met HARMAN in 1986, the year after she joined the board of the feisty non-partisan advocacy group.
"Even her voice mail was a plea for harmony in living."
She could write thoughtful, considered and knowledgeable position papers. She could and did write snippy and/or exasperated letters to government ministries and newspapers.
"It's a great relief to know, thanks to Mike HARRIS, that the real value of education is in learning how to market yourself. What fools the thinkers and teachers have been for thousands of years, putting their efforts into studying and researching in the arts and sciences. No wonder teachers are so despised by our government," read one of them.
As her grandnephew, Peter MURRAY, said, "Her weapon was the fax machine."
HARMAN volunteered for the Ontario Coalition of Senior Citizens Associations, the Ontario Health Coalition, Care Watch and the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario. She was a powerhouse for the University of Toronto social work alumnae, ensuring that social justice issues were always addressed in its newsletters. She was both fearless and tireless.
In September 2002, she was behind what MUTCH described as a "major comprehensive missive" submitted to the pre-budget consultations of the federal government's standing committee on finance.
"The prime concern of government should be to ensure that the rights and basic needs of all citizens are met, thus ensuring greater levels of prosperity and the highest quality of life for all Canadians," she wrote in part.
"It is time to put the Canadian people first. Business looks after itself very well. They have had priority with the government. A significant change in priorities is in order."
She wasn't afraid to take to the streets to make her point.
"She was often out at demos," said Dorothy MacKINNON, another Canadian Pensioners Concerned board member. "There was one with the Ryerson students umpteen years ago and we went there with our banner. The students were so surprised. They thanked us."
HARMAN marched to Queen's Park protesting Mike Harris's Common Sense Revolution during the Days of Action. In 1996, while in Ottawa drawing up battle plans to fight rumours of pension cuts, she told a reporter: "We are tired of being called greedy geezers and grasping grannies. We're not just in this for ourselves. We are parents and grandparents, and we care about our children and grandchildren, and we want something to be there for them when they reach retirement."
Her small north Toronto house was the site of many meetings, and it was loaded with plaques recognizing her volunteer work. She received her last award this past November, from the Ontario Society (Coalition) of Senior Citizens' Organizations, for her efforts on behalf of seniors and the disabled.
This past February she died at home of cancer. She was 84 and still fighting. She had been working on a draft of a speech about compulsory retirement, to which she was adamantly opposed. Her niece, Joan MURRAY, recalled how someone inquired of HARMAN how she was feeling about a month before her death.
"Angry," was the reply.
HARMAN was born in the parlour of the family farm in King Township. Her parents were hardworking though somewhat complacent farmers, but her older brother Leonard, who married the local schoolteacher, was a catalyst for discussions about social justice. His sister became secretary of the Temperance Farm Radio Forum, their local rural discussion group and one of many across the country sponsored by Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio and farm organizations.
HARMAN recently had talked about finding a letter dated 1942 from Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie KING. It acknowledged her remarks about the health system.
The first member of her family to attend university, she graduated from the faculty of social work at the University of Toronto in 1946 and worked for the Young Men's Christian Association in Winnipeg and Toronto before joining University Settlement House. "To Mae, each person was a person of worth," said Harry MORROW, who was her boss at the time. "She didn't do for people. She did things with them."
Later, at the University of Windsor, she was well known for mentoring and hosting dinner parties for exchange social work students from Hong Kong, but everyone agrees it was when she moved back to Toronto and took up volunteer work that she really hit her stride.
"She really got her fire," said MORROW. " There had been no indication she was this crusading type when she had been working."
She thrived in her new neighbourhood: she was the lady in the witch-and-spider earrings handing out candy every Halloween and she regularly threw big parties to which everyone was invited. When she was being treated for cancer, she would sit in her living room -- languishing in her bedroom was not her style, according to MURRAY, her niece -- as Friends and neighbours came in through the open front door. Long an advocate of a strong home health- care system, she benefited from it and her team of caregivers.
MURRAY said the night before HARMAN died, she had fallen off her bed. A friend called 911 and four handsome firefighters arrived to put her back in bed. At least that was HARMAN's version. "We were having a bit of a party," she told MURRAY. She died the next morning, in that bed, petting her cat, Joy.

CLINK, Marion Victoria (née BRYSON)
It is with great sadness that our family announces Marion's passing at North York General Hospital on Sunday, October 16th, 2005 in her 89th year. Beloved wife of Allan Ray CLINK of Toronto. Loving mother of Marilyn (Laurie) SMITH of North Bay and Donald (Marilyn) CLINK of Toronto. Grandmother of Peter (Stacey) SMITH of Toronto and Michael (Leora) SMITH of Bemidji, Minnesota. Marion was born on September 24th, 1917 in Toronto the daughter of Roy Melvin BRYSON of Kendal and his wife Arvilla May MORROW of Kirby in Clarke Township, Durham County, Ontario. In the 1920's the Bryson family moved to the city of Hamilton where her father Roy BRYSON rose up the ranks at the Pilkington Glass Company to become the Hamilton District Manager. Mom spent her teen years and later life with her high school Friends who formed a sorority which became known as the "DIzzy Dames". These Friendships endured through time and the girls made a yearly effort to get together for more than sixty years, until declining health forced the group to disband. She met her husband Allan CLINK, a young engineer from Alberta on a tennis court and they were married September 4th, 1943 at Hamilton's First United Church. Marion and Al moved to Toronto after the War where they made many Friends from their association with Armour Heights and more recently Fairlawn Heights United Church. Just last month the couple celebrated their 62nd Wedding Anniversary and Marion's 88th birthday. Every day was a struggle in recent months, but thanks to the efforts of Mom's caregiver Jean THOMAS her quality of life in the time remaining was greatly improved. The family finds some consolation in their time of grief by the fact that mom was able to live out her life in her home as she wanted. She will always be fondly remembered as kind and caring to all, a good neighbour and a loving wife, mother and grandmother. Funeral arrangements in care of The Simple Alternative Funeral Centre, 275 Lesmill Road, Toronto. In lieu of flowers, the family wishes that donations be made to the Alzheimer Society. No visitation. Interment at Orono Cemetery. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
