HALL, Louisa Irene (SANDICK)
Of Ingersoll Avenue, in Woodstock, on Wednesday, October 26, 2005 in her 100th year. Irene was born in Ingersoll on March 16, 1906, the eldest child of J. Ernest and Mary (WEIR) SANDICK. She spent her childhood on her parents' dairy farm near Beachville. In her youth Irene was catcher on the well known Dunn's ladies softball team, until she went off to Normal School, London, in 1925. In 1926, she began her teaching career in a small school in Lakehurst, north or Peterborough, and a year later she married John D. HALL of that community. Together they had six children - Douglas (Rhonda) of Montreal, Quebec, Pauline (Bob McLAREN) of Hickson, Delbert (Sheila) of Innisfil, Richard (Janet) of Woodstock, Keith of Woodstock, and Dennis (Thea) of Hadashville, Manitoba. From 1934 to 1952 the family resided in Innerkip, where Irene was active in the United Church and various community events. After John's death in 1953, Irene went back to teaching - serving in several Oxford County schools, among them Centreville, Southside, Beaconsfield, and Hickson. She loved children and could remember almost all of those she taught - long after her retirement in 1971. She kept mentally alert until her life's end, enjoying scrapbooks and puzzles, scrabble and cards - usually beating her care-giver, Keith, quite handily. In addition to her children and their spouses, Irene is survived by twenty grandchildren and their spouses, thirty-three great-grandchildren and spouses. She also has a sister Nell (Mrs. Alex) HART. She is predeceased by brother Gordon SANDICK (Elsie,) and numerous life long Friends and relatives with whom she shared her long and productive life. Friends and relatives are invited to join the family at the R.D. Longworth Funeral Home, 845 Devonshire Avenue, Woodstock, 539-0004 on Friday October 28, 2005 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m., where a funeral service to celebrate Irene's life will be held in the chapel on Saturday at 11: 00 a.m. with Reverend Margaret MURRAY the officiant.

John GLADSTONE, Cleric And Orator 1921-2005
Handsome, eloquent and blessed with a keen intelligence, the Baptist minister was 'a pulpit virtuoso' who cultivated a large and loyal Toronto congregation, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Saturday, January 22, 2005 - Page S7
A passionate soccer fan, an avid reader of spy thrillers and a man of unwavering faith, John GLADSTONE was such a compelling preacher that he drew celebrants to his Toronto pulpit from as far away as Michigan. For more than 30 years, Reverend Charles Adams of Hartford Memorial Baptist Church in Detroit would conduct two services for his own congregation on Sunday mornings, drive with his wife to Toronto to hear Reverend GLADSTONE deliver his evening sermon and then get back in their car for the four-hour drive home.
Back in the early 1970s, a time of bristling racial tensions in the northern U.S., Reverend Adams was feeling burdened by the weight of his pastoral duties. He loved Toronto "as a city of high intellect and high culture" and he wanted "to be where I could be stimulated, but not called upon [as a pastor]. Chancing upon Yorkminster Park Baptist Church in mid-town Toronto, he found himself in a "gorgeous, gorgeous church and wonderful music and great, great preaching" by Reverend GLADSTONE.
Rev. Adams always sat in a back pew because he didn't want to be conspicuous, although as a black man in those white-bread days that was a slim hope. "I just wanted to receive the word and it was preached with such clarity and such classical greatness that I would go many times to fulfill my spiritual cup and recharge my batteries," he said this week. "Dr. GLADSTONE stimulated me intellectually and spiritually as a man who was morally committed to what he was doing and what he was about."
John Norris GLADSTONE was born in 1921 in London, the second of three children of a Baptist minister and his wife. He grew up in Suffolk in the east of England, playing goal in soccer and developing a life-long passion for the Arsenal football club of London. He enlisted in the Royal Air Force when the Second World War broke out, hoping to become a pilot. Because he was myopic in one eye, he failed the eyesight test and was assigned instead to the "codes-and-ciphers" detachment. That is probably how he survived the war, commented his son Peter GLADSTONE, a Toronto cardiologist, pointing out that his father had served in Iceland and was part of the Normandy landing in June, 1944, before being sent to Australia to help defend against a feared expansion of the war in Asia.
After peace came, Reverend GLADSTONE attended Manchester Baptist College. He graduated and was ordained in 1950, the same year he married Joyce AUSTIN. In the early years of their marriage and his ministry they served in churches in Caversham, Plymouth and Bromley and had their two children, Peter and Judith. Leonard GRIFFITH, long-time minister at St. Paul's Anglican Church and another legendary Toronto preacher, met Reverend GLADSTONE in 1960 when he moved to England to serve as minister in an Anglican church in the East End of London.
The two families both lived in Bromley, an awkward commute to Rev. GRIFFITH's church. One Sunday night, feeling exhausted from preaching both a morning and an evening sermon at City Temple, Rev. GRIFFITH arrived at Bromley Station, praying for a bus to take him the rest of the way home. Instead, as he told the celebrants at the memorial service for Reverend GRIFFITH on Sunday, he found "an angel on the platform, wearing a clerical collar," with a car waiting outside.
Later, Reverend GRIFFITH invited his friend to preach at a week-day noon service at City Temple. "Here was a pulpit virtuoso who approached the preaching task with the preparation and dedication of a violinist approaching a concerto," Reverend GRIFFITH said in his tribute. "His sermon gripped me because it had something to say. It was well structured, richly illustrated, appealing to my heart as well as my mind. He had obviously written a full manuscript, but there was no sign of it, because he looked directly into the faces of his congregation and preached with an eloquence that flowed from his finger tips."
The GLADSTONE family immigrated to Canada in response to a call from Yorkminster Park Baptist Church early in 1965. He served the congregation for 26 years, publishing four books of his collected sermons, contributing regularly to Moments of Meditation on CFRB radio and guest preaching in a wide variety of pulpits that included the Bill Graham Schools of Evangelism and the First Baptist Church in Washington, where he spent eight months as an interim minister after he officially retired from Yorkminster Park.
His evangelical prowess is celebrated in The John N. Gladstone Festival of Preaching at McMaster Divinity College in Hamilton, an annual professional-development event devoted to technique and sources.
Former cabinet minister Barbara MacDOUGALL, who grew up attending Sunday services in the church, described him as very caring and compassionate, but also realistic. "He understood the whole range of human emotion," she said. In commenting on his "seamless and very interesting sermons," she said Reverend GLADSTONE had an exceptional mind that he combined with a great faith and a formidable capacity to communicate. "He had a scholarly background so he was very knowledgeable and he also had a good sense of humour. I don't think any of his sermons passed without some humorous anecdote that would illustrate his point very well."
A tall, handsome man with a slight British accent, chalk-white hair and a twinkle in his eye, Reverend GLADSTONE's appearance and manner of dressing were as elegant as his speech. "We all have our vulnerabilities and maybe that was one of his, but it is not one that I regard as serious," Ms. MacDOUGALL said with a laugh. "If God gives you the gift of being good-looking, what are you waiting for?"
Anglican canon Reginald STACKHOUSE, referred to him as "one of the last pulpit giants" who not only attracted a larger attendance to his church, but held it for more than two decades. That's a considerable tribute, he said, to somebody who was preaching twice a Sunday in a time when the conventional wisdom decreed that sermons were out of date, preaching was an anachronism, and the church itself was in decline. "John GLADSTONE represented the reality, mainly that people still look for the spoken word and respond to it when it is done so well."
Rev. Adams concurred. "He was an amazing master of the English language with a very clear lyrical way of expressing himself," he said. As a preacher, Reverend GLADSTONE used examples and illustrations from literature, the Bible, current events and everyday life to make concrete connections with his congregation. "He was inspirational in his prayers," said Reverend STACKHOUSE. "He had a combination of elegant language and suppliant delivery. One did not get the impression that he was haranguing the Almighty; he was petitioning, but in a most elegant way."
Both his children considered him a "wonderful" father who loved them unconditionally. "We certainly weren't unconditionally good, but that didn't matter," said his daughter Judith MURRAY, a physiotherapist. "He had a terrific sense of humour," added his son Peter.
After 47 years of marriage, Reverend GLADSTONE's wife Joyce died in 1997, the same year he underwent a double bypass heart operation. Three years later, he suffered a couple of small strokes that affected his ability to organize his thoughts. When he found he could no longer preach extemporaneously to the high standards he had set himself, he stepped down from the pulpit and served the church in other ways.
His successor Reverend Peter HOLMES was "very gracious" about asking him to lead the congregation in prayer and to read the scripture during services, according to Ms. MURRAY. And her father was very gracious in return. "I never ask, but I always say yes," he told his daughter about Reverend HOLMES's invitations. He also devoted a lot of time to House of Compassion, an organization that serves the homeless, and to the Langham Trust, a foundation established for the education of clergy in the developing world.
His support of the Arsenal football club grew as time passed and in his retirement he devoted Saturday mornings to watching his favourite team on television. "He was an Arsenal fan to the end," said his son. "It was a big comfort to him" after his wife died, said his daughter, adding with a chuckle that her mother "wouldn't have allowed him to watch that much soccer."
Admitting that as a child it was sometimes hard to share her father with the rest of the congregation, Ms. MURRAY said that "as a kid you see that as a negative, but now I see it as a positive. My pastor said [after her father died] 'he pointed the way to heaven for a lot of people.' How could I not share somebody who was doing that?"
John Norris GLADSTONE was born in the Hammersmith area of London on October 6, 1921. He died of cancer after a long illness in Toronto on January 4. He was 83. He is survived by his son Peter and daughter Judith.

In 1950 she returned to University of Toronto to earn a M.S.W., and after some years as a Branch Director with the Toronto Young Women's Christian Association, she took a position running junior and teen programs at the University Settlement. She remembered these years as 'the happiest and most productive years of [her] professional life.' Mae served as Executive Director of the Ontario Association of Professional Social Workers from 1967-1973, and in 1973, she was appointed to the School of Social Work at the University of Windsor. Upon her retirement in 1985, Mae returned to Toronto, where she bought a house that she filled with mementos of her many travels and Friends. She took great pleasure in her neighbours and her cats, and she embarked on a second career as a volunteer advocate for social justice. As a member and then President of Canadian Pensioners Concerned, Ontario Division, and in connection with many other organizations and committees, she spoke out with passion and intelligence on many health and social policy issues. She received numerous awards for her volunteer service and advocacy efforts, including the Arbor Award from University of Toronto and the Dan Benedict Award from the Ontario Coalition of Senior Citizens' Organizations. Mae is admired and fondly remembered by her niece Joan (HARMAN) MURRAY and husband Timothy MURRAY, and her great nephew Peter Harman MURRAY.

Royce FRITH, Lawyer, Politician, Diplomat 1923-2005
As canny as he was charming, he never seriously ran for office and instead horse-traded his way into the Senate before being sent to London as High Commissioner, writes Sandra MARTIN. An enthusiastic amateur thespian, he above all relished the drama of the 1995 turbot wars against Spanish fishermen
Saturday, March 26, 2005, Page S9
Tall, patrician, and impeccably dressed, Royce FRITH was a natural communicator who moved through life with charm and grace. A lawyer by training, a Liberal by avocation, and a performer by instinct, he had the potential to be either chief justice of the Supreme Court or prime minister. That he was neither was a mystery to many, but the most likely explanation was fourfold: He was intensely private; his many talents, which included acting and singing, tempted him to enjoy life in the broadest sense; he needed to make a living; and, although he relished influence, he wasn't hungry enough to seek real power.
Mr. FRITH suffered two great tragedies in his life -- the breakdown of his marriage followed by his estranged wife's premature death in 1976, and the death four years later of his son Greg from malignant melanoma at age 25 -- but he kept his anguish to himself and never really spoke about these losses even with his closest Friends. He maintained the same strict privacy in the last few years about his own struggle with cancer. Even many of his closest Friends did not know the extent of his illness.
He served his country as a member of the Royal Commission on Bilingualism and Biculturalism, as a Senator during the Trudeau and Mulroney eras, and perhaps most famously as the High Commissioner to England and Northern Ireland who saved Canada House and who rallied British fishermen to the Canadian cause during the "turbot war" with the Spanish in the mid-1990s.
Earlier this week, senators from all sides of the Upper Chamber rose to pay tribute to Mr. FRITH. Liberal Joyce FAIRBURN noted that he had "cut a swath through this place with a potent mix of intellect, talent, humour, stubbornness, skill and commitment that challenged the rest of us to think and act well beyond the boundaries of this chamber." Conservative Lowell MURRAY, who had often "crossed swords" with Mr. FRITH, especially during the 1990 G.S.T. filibuster, praised him as "a model of bilingualism," and an "enjoyable, engaging and interesting companion and a great raconteur." Long-time political strategist Dorothy DAVEY, speaking on behalf of herself and her husband, former Senator Keith DAVEY, said, "he brought intelligence and élan to every position he held and joy and warmth to every Friendship he graced and every room he entered,"
Royce Herbert FRITH was born in Lachine, Quebec, the only son of George Harry FIRTH and Annie Beatrice ROYCE. He was educated at Lachine High School and transferred to Parkdale Collegiate after the family moved to Toronto in the mid-1930s. He graduated from the University of Toronto in 1946 and Osgoode Hall in 1949 and then did a Diplôme d' études supérieures (droit) at the University of Ottawa. By then, he had married Elizabeth DAVISON, a professional singer whom he had met through The Toronto Mendelssohn Choir.
Back in Toronto, the FRITHs lived in Leaside and Mr. FRITH practised law on his own for nearly two years before joining two colleagues to form the firm of Magwood, Frith and Pocock. He made his political affiliation to the Liberal party early, serving as national treasurer of the Young Liberal Association in 1949. He got involved in local politics by sitting on Leaside town council in 1951 and 1952 and serving as reeve in 1953. He won the nomination as the provincial Liberal candidate for York East in 1955, but lost by more than 7,000 votes to Hollis BECKETT, the Conservative candidate.
He never ran for public office again. Former Senator John NICHOL thinks of Mr. FRITH as a Renaissance man. He speculates that he didn't actively pursue a career in elected politics because "his interests were so broad, in the arts and music, that I don't think he wanted to limit himself to the treadmill existence of an member of Parliament, or worse, a cabinet minister."
Instead he became a strategist and an organizer, becoming president of the Ontario Liberal Association in 1960, a position he held until 1962. By then, he was one of the key members of Cell 13, a group organized by Keith DAVEY, then national director of the Liberal Party, to build up electoral support for Lester PEARSON and his brand of reform liberalism throughout the country after the party's disastrous showings in the 1957 and 1958 federal elections. One of Cell 13's key activities, as described by Christina McCall-Newman in her book Grits, was "travelling show-and tell demonstrations of canvassing, speaking, and advertising methods" for novice candidates, collected under the rubric of the School of Practical Politics. Mr. FRITH, was a key trainer in these "campaign colleges."
Before the 1963 election that gave Mr. PEARSON his first minority government, the perfectly bilingual Mr. FRITH was a practising lawyer, the host of a television program called Telepoll on the newly formed CTV network, and an applicant before the Board of Broadcast Governors for a licence to establish a private radio station in Windsor, close to the border with the United States.
He got the licence, much to the annoyance of Windsor member of Parliament Paul MARTIN, who thought it should go to a local, and four months later relinquished it in favour of his silent partner, media czar Geoffrey STIRLING.
Mr. DAVEY was not pleased at these public rufflings of Liberal party solidarity, which provided John DIEFENBAKER with fuel for his scathing wit. In his 1986 book, The Rainmaker, he wrote: "Though never quite a dilettante, Royce was not prepared to commit totally to anything, least of all a political career." He went on to say that he regarded Mr. FRITH as "a squandered political resource" who might even have been prime minister. "Too often, however, he slid by on his remarkable personality."
Mr. PEARSON did not share that view. One of his first acts as Prime Minister was to establish the Royal Commission on Bilingualism and Biculturalism, with Mr. FRITH as one of ten commissioners. He served the Commission faithfully and well, saying at one point in the hearings that: "If one section of the country sees it as consisting of a majority and a minority while the other sees it as an equal partnership, this does not provide a fertile ground for the exchange of culture. Until we can find ways to change these attitudes, the present conflict will continue."
Earlier this week, Keith SPICER, who was appointed Canada's first Commissioner of Official Languages by Pierre TRUDEAU in 1970, paid tribute to Mr. FRITH who served as his legal adviser. "Royce's advice, in those days when language was still a minefield of anger, misunderstanding and prejudice, was fundamental to the success of the Official Languages Act."
As canny as he was charming, Mr. FRITH struck himself an advantageous deal when the Liberals wanted him to be Ontario campaign manager in the late 1970s. Perhaps Mr. FRITH knew how hard it would be to deliver Ontario to the Liberals in the wake of Mr. TRUDEAU's imposition of the War Measures Act and wage and price controls. He was willing to give up his lucrative law practice to serve the party but he asked for, and received, an appointment to the Senate in 1977. He then took on running the Ontario campaign in the 1979 election, the election that saw Mr. TRUDEAU trounced by Joe CLARK's Progressive Conservatives.
In the Senate, Mr. FRITH was an active and gifted debater and served as deputy leader of the government from 1980 to 1984, deputy leader of the Opposition from 1984 to 1991 and leader of the Opposition from 1991. Working in Ottawa gave him the opportunity to spend more time in nearby Perth, his mother's ancestral home in the Ottawa Valley, and to indulge his passion for amateur theatricals, including playing Henry Higgins in My Fair Lady. "Quite frankly," said Senator David SMITH, "he was better looking than Rex Harrison and he had a real polish and flair."
He resigned his Senate seat in 1994, five years before mandatory retirement at age 75, to become High Commissioner to London, his final and most triumphant period of public life. He waged two major campaigns. Under his predecessor Fredrik EATON, appointed by Brian MULRONEY, there was a serious danger that the lease on Canada House in its flagship location in Trafalgar Square in London, was going to be allowed to lapse. Mr. FRITH was appalled and did his utmost to point out that losing Canada House was going to be a blow to Canadian tradition and prestige. He also discovered that under the terms of the lease, Canada had to restore the building to its original condition before handing it back to the Crown. Instead of saving money, giving up Canada House was going to cost a great deal. That proved a winning argument in those cost-conscious days.
Former Liberal Cabinet minister Brian Tobin, now a lawyer in the private sector, had trained as a young candidate with Mr. FRITH in one of the many campaign colleges. He appreciated Mr. FRITH's brand of Liberalism. "He understood the private sector very well, but he also had a huge heart and understood that not only did you have to produce wealth in this society, you have to be fair to those who have fewer advantages."
But what really endeared Mr. FRITH to him was the role he played in the turbot wars when Mr. Tobin was federal minister of fisheries. Members of the fishing community in Cornwall started flying Canadian flags because they were upset by the over-fishing that they themselves were seeing by the Spanish and the Portuguese and they sympathized with Canada's position. Mr. FRITH went to visit them to say thank you. "He did a marvellous job," said Mr. Tobin. "He was such an articulate, persuasive personality that he could walk into a community he had never been in before in his life at a time like that and really embody Canada in the most positive sense of the word."
When asked if he had a favourite memory of Mr. FRITH, he said, "I see this big tall guy in a bow tie with chiselled features, big grin, flashing eyes looking for the next big cause, bare knuckles and all, to embrace. And that's Royce."
If Mr. FRITH was disappointed when he was recalled in 1996 to make way for former Cabinet minister Roy MacLaren to succeed him in London, he kept it to himself.
The Vancouver law firm now called Borden Ladner Gervais invited him to join them as a consultant on British and European affairs. The climate was better than in Ottawa and he had Friends there, especially former Senators John Nichol and George Van Roggen. He quickly became the centre of a social circle that revolved around the Vancouver Symphony, the board of Pearson College and the Vancouver Club. "Royce would walk in every day," said David Smith, "looking like he had just come off Jermyn Street, tailored by Savile Row. I never needed to book anything [when I went to Vancouver], all I had to do was go to the Vancouver Club and there he would be looking like a million dollars."
Mr. FRITH's daughter Valerie also moved to Vancouver where she taught for a number of years in the publishing program at Simon Fraser University. He never remarried, although he had many close women Friends, most notably Hillary Haggan in recent years.
Royce Herbert FRITH was born in Lachine, Quebec, on November 12, 1923. He died of pneumonia as a complication of malignant myeloma at home in Vancouver on March 17, 2005. He was 81. He is survived by his daughter Valerie and her family.

John O'NEILL, Educator 1947-2005
Ottawa baseball devotee and coach created a popular website for local high school sports results that is about to go national
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, May 14, 2005, Page S9
John O'NEILL was such an accomplished student that he skipped two grades in one fell swoop, thanks to one of his best teachers his mother.
Margaret O'NEILL taught John all through the lower grades at the Barr Line School near their home of Douglas, Ontario, a hamlet located 100 km. northwest of Ottawa. With that scholastic upbringing, he went on to become not just a teacher but a visionary, the convener and coach of many successful teams at Ottawa's Brookfield High School for 30 years before he retired in 2000.
Early on, Mr. O'NEILL easily combined sports with school, and established himself in Douglas as an accomplished baseball player, a star hitter and strong-armed pitcher-shortstop.
On a hot day in August in 1965, as a member of an elite adult team in the South Renfrew Senior Baseball League, he faced adversity in the seventh and deciding game of the championship series against Barry's Bay. In the middle of the game, he smoked a line-drive solo home run off Mike MURRAY into a pile of abandoned ice-rink boards behind an outhouse beyond the centre-field fence. A happy John O'NEILL waltzed around the bases and his teammates all ganged up at home plate to welcome him. But alas, those teammates apparently left no room for him to touch the plate, which was missing a piece at one corner. In the ensuing hoopla, Barry's Bay catcher Phil COULAS noticed that Mr. O'NEILL hadn't touched the plate he informed umpire Alfie BRACE. Barry's Bay appealed the play and the umpire called Mr. O'NEILL out. The Douglas team protested. Even Reverend Tom HUNT, the local Catholic priest, marched out to admonish the umpire, saying, "That man touched home plate." In any event, Douglas won 6-5 in 12 innings.
After attending Grades 9 through 12 at St. Michael's School in Douglas, Mr. O'NEILL took Grade 13 at Renfrew Collegiate Institute and went on to obtain a Bachelor of Arts following three years at St. Patrick's College in Ottawa. A year later, he obtained his honours degree in Canadian and American history at Ottawa's Carleton University and got his teaching certificate from St. Pat's in 1968. It was at St. Pat's that Mr. O'NEILL met Joan CARDINAL, who became his wife, and a city and regional councillor in Ottawa for many years.
John O'NEILL embarked on his teaching career with a two-year stint at East Northumberland Secondary School in Brighton, Ontario, before moving to Brookfield. Johnny O, as he was known, was a history and economics teacher who also brought a passion for track and field, football and baseball to Brookfield.
From 1980 to 1993, he was the Ottawa Board of Education's track-and-field convener. He coached Brookfield to eight consecutive Ottawa championships. In football, he found the same success, helping coach the Blues to six Ottawa board titles.
Still, baseball remained Mr. O'NEILL's favourite sport. An autographed photo of Mickey Mantle was one of his favourite possessions. So when the boards of education in the Ottawa area decided to introduce baseball in 1993, he jumped right in and took over Brookfield's entry. Not surprisingly, Mr. O'NEILL's team won the 1994 Ottawa crown and the 1995 and 1996 National Capital titles.
When he retired, Mr. O'NEILL didn't throw in the towel. The visionary side of him emerged, and he founded http: //www.fatdog.ca, an Internet high school sports-reporting system that has become Ottawa's venue to seek game results. He spent countless hours on the site and it was his way of showing students and coaches that they deserved recognition for the underappreciated roles they played on their teams.
"We wanted a catchy name and John and I tossed all kinds of names around," Mrs. O'NEILL said. "We looked at our dog Bailey, a pot-bellied beagle, so we decided to go with fatdog. John's idea was to do the website for Brookfield only -- but our son Sean suggested he do it for all of the school teams in the Ottawa area." Sean O'NEILL and his employer, Ottawa-based MarsWorks, are planning a major revision to the site next fall and are planning to bring in other high school associations from across Canada.
In 2002, the National Capital Secondary School Athletic Association presented John O'NEILL with the Fellowship Award for 30 years of coaching and for creating http: //www.fatdog.ca.
John O'NEILL was born in Douglas, Ontario, on July 19, 1947. He died January 1, 2005, in Ottawa Hospital of pneumonia as a result of complications from cancer and liver disease. He is survived by his wife, Joan, and children Sean and Shannon. He was predeceased by his mother Margaret.

ERB, John Edwin (13 September 1932-31 July, 2005)
Reverend Canon, Executive Director, Anglican Foundation
"We have lots of love, Friendship, family; we are blessed." These were some of John's last words, given through a wonderful smile, as his magnificent brain was being ravaged by the Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease. John was born in Kitchener, Ontario, to the late Irvin and Sally ERB (née MEYSCHEIN.) He will always be missed by his adored children Nicholas and Katie, his wife Didy (née BRADISH) of 29 years, his loving sisters and brothers-in-law Cathie and John HOWARD, Hornby Island, British Columbia, and Margie and Bob CARR, Hamilton. 'John The Giant' was a special uncle to Stephen HOWARD and Rhonda SPENCE, Emily HOWARD and Alex LAVIGNE; Tom HOWARD and Landys KLYNE; Mary HOWARD, Stewart, Duncan, Will and Angus MURRAY; Sally HOWARD, Jim and Tommy HAMAGUCHI; Sarah CARR Tim CARR and Kate FEIGHTNER; Pat CARR, Nadine HEINTZ and Oliver CARR; and friend David HUGHES. His many ERB and Meyschein family cousins love him and will miss him.
A passionate Canadian, John was a leader, Anglican Priest, teacher, traveller, camper and actor. Until his late teens John was a member of Trinity United, the ERB family's church, where he grew up in the Sunday School. He attended 'Young People's' both there and at Saint John the Evangelist Anglican Church. When he returned after working for a year in England, he joined the confirmation class at Saint John. Thus began his journey to become an Anglican priest. Graduating from the Kitchener Public School system and Wilfred Laurier University, he received his early theological training from Trinity College. He continued graduate studies in later years in Boston, Virginia and Jerusalem.
John's ministry began at St. Aidan's in 1965. In 1967 his strong identification with young people led him to a truly successful period as Director of Youth for the Church of England, both in Guyana, S.A. and then in the United Kingdom..
John returned to Canada with Didy in December 1973 and continued his ministries, first at Grace Church on the Hill, then at St. Luke's East York. In 1981 he became Rector of St. Michael and All Angels, where he embraced all, and many saw him as more than a pastor. He retired from St. Michael's in 1997. For the past seven years John's energetic leadership has been devoted to the Anglican Foundation of Canada, a work he loved. It enabled him to travel the length and breadth of this country, often visiting parishes in small communities, and as in all of his previous work, met wonderful dedicated people and established lasting Friendships and respect everywhere.
Throughout his working life John participated on many Boards and Committees focusing on community outreach, and has helped develop programs such as Out Of The Cold, Street Haven for battered women and Christie Gardens, and has worked to encourage interfaith ministry. His robust leadership has been recognized and honoured in many ways including the 125th Anniversary Medal of Canada Member and former Chaplain, Order of Saint John Ambulance, Serving Brother - Saint John of Jerusalem; Chaplaincy appointments to The Royal Society of Physicians and Surgeons, The Canadian Club of Toronto, The Benchers and The Order of St. Lazarus.
His personal passions are his family, his ministry, the theatre, ballet, opera, the family cottage at Oliphant and the Taize Retreat in France.
During his hospital confinement John and his family were enormously moved by those many Friends, acquaintances and co-workers old and new, who visited during his last days. Literally, they came by the hundreds from all spectrums of society to reminisce, renew Friendships and offer their love and support. Nothing could have made more visible the lasting impact John had on so many lives.
We will always be grateful for the kindness and incredible care given to John and his family by all the caregivers in the Palliative Care Unit at St. Michael's Hospital.
In lieu of flowers, please join John in his living legacy for theological education through his work at the Anglican Foundation of Canada (80 Hayden Street, Toronto, M4Y 3G2), or to the charity of your choice.
Visitation will be at the Morley Bedford Funeral Home, 159 Eglinton Ave. W., Toronto, between Yonge and Avenue Rd., 1: 00 to 4:00 p.m. and 7: 00 to 9:00 p.m. Friday, August 5th.
The funeral will be held at St. James Cathedral, King St. E. at Church Street, at 11: 00 a.m. Saturday, August 6th. A service preceding interment in Woodland Cemetery will be held in Kitchener at the Church of Saint John The Evangelist, Water Street, north of King Street, on Monday, August 8 at 11: 30 a.m. Reception at 10:30 a.m. in the Church Hall.

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.

Upon her retirement in 1985, Mae returned to Toronto, where she bought a house that she filled with mementos of her many travels and Friends.

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.

MURRAY, Donald Thomas
Passed away on May 2, 2005, just 3 weeks after his 98th birthday. Born in Ratho, Midlothian County, Scotland, emigrated to Canada in 1923, and spent his first Canadian winter driving a horse-drawn supply sleigh on a route in northern Saskatchewan. Worked for Massey-Harris in Saskatchewan for many years, eventually as a supervisor of dealer territories. Moved to Ste. Therese, Quebec in 1942 to take a position as maintenance supervisor of the giant war plant at Bouchard outside Montreal. After the war he became General Sales Manager of Penn Controls and moved to the head office in Toronto in 1954. Many of his Friends and acquaintances will remember him as the owner of a company that sold and serviced electric and gas golf carts for the last three decades of his life. Sports was a life long interest as player and coach - golf, soccer, hockey, basketball, track and field, and football. In the days of leather helmets he played in a Grey Cup game as halfback for the Regina (now Saskatchewan) Roughriders. In 1939 he married Erma Belle WILCOX of Gainsborough, Saskatchewan, who passed away in 1999. He is survived by his son Douglas Gary MURRAY and Gary's wife Shirley. Gary and Shirley wish to thank caregiver Gloria WHYNE and the nurses at Rouge Valley Centenary Hospital who looked after him in his final days. We also deeply appreciate the kindness of all those who brightened his later life with visits and who helped him to remain in his home of 51 years until two weeks before his death, especially Len and Cindy VAN RYN, Joy PECK, and Debbie PERRIN. At a mid-summer date to be announced, his ashes will be interred beside those of his wife at Churchill Cemetery near Ballantrae and a memorial service will follow. Arrangements entrusted to R.S. Kane Funeral Home, Willowdale. Donations to The Scott Mission, 416-923-8872. Condolences www.rskane.ca.

ERB, John Edwin (13 September 1932-31 July, 2005)
Reverend Canon, Executive Director, Anglican Foundation
"We have lots of love, Friendship, family; we are blessed." These were some of John's last words, given through a wonderful smile, as his magnificent brain was being ravaged by the Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease. John was born in Kitchener, Ontario, to the late Irvin and Sally ERB (née MEYSCHEIN.) He will always be missed by his adored children Nicholas and Katie, his wife Didy (née BRADISH) of 29 years, his loving sisters and brothers-in-law Cathie and John HOWARD, Hornby Island, British Columbia, and Margie and Bob CARR, Hamilton. "John The Giant" was a special uncle to Stephen Howard and Rhonda SPENCE, Emily HOWARD and Alex LAVIGNE; Tom HOWARD and Landys KLYNE; Mary HOWARD, Stewart, Duncan, Will and Angus MURRAY; Sally HOWARD, Jim and Tommy HAMAGUCHI; Sarah CARR Tim CARR and Kate FEIGHTNER; Pat CARR, Nadine HEINTZ and Oliver CARR; and friend David HUGHES. His many ERB and Meyschein family cousins love him and will miss him. A passionate Canadian, John was a leader, Anglican Priest, teacher, traveller, camper and actor. Until his late teens John was a member of Trinity United, the ERB family's church, where he grew up in the Sunday School. He attended "Young People's" both there and at Saint John the Evangelist Anglican Church. When he returned after working for a year in England, he joined the confirmation class at Saint John. Thus began his journey to become an Anglican priest. Graduating from the Kitchener Public School system and Wilfred Laurier University, he received his early theological training from Trinity College. He continued graduate studies in later years in Boston, Virginia and Jerusalem. John's ministry began at St. Aidan's in 1965. In 1967 his strong identification with young people led him to a truly successful period as Director of Youth for the Church of England, both in Guyana, S.A. and then in the United Kingdom John returned to Canada with Didy in December 1973 and continued his ministries, first at Grace Church on the Hill, then at St. Luke's East York. In 1981 he became Rector of St. Michael and All Angels, where he embraced all, and many saw him as more than a pastor. He retired from St. Michael's in 1997. For the past seven years John's energetic leadership has been devoted to the Anglican Foundation of Canada, a work he loved. It enabled him to travel the length and breadth of this country, often visiting parishes in small communities, and as in all of his previous work, met wonderful dedicated people and established lasting Friendships and respect everywhere. Throughout his working life John participated on many Boards and Committees focusing on community outreach, and has helped develop programs such as Out Of The Cold, Street Haven for battered women and Christie Gardens, and has worked to encourage interfaith ministry. His robust leadership has been recognized and honoured in many ways including the 125th Anniversary Medal of Canada; Member and former Chaplain, Order of Saint John Ambulance, Serving Brother - Saint John of Jerusalem Chaplaincy appointments to The Royal Society of Physicians and Surgeons, The Canadian Club of Toronto, The Benchers and The Order of St. Lazarus. His personal passions are his family, his ministry, the theatre, ballet, opera, the family cottage at Oliphant and the Taize Retreat in France. During his hospital confinement John and his family were enormously moved by those many Friends, acquaintances and co-workers old and new, who visited during his last days. Literally, they came by the hundreds from all spectrums of society to reminisce, renew Friendships and offer their love and support. Nothing could have made more visible the lasting impact John had on so many lives. We will always be grateful for the kindness and incredible care given to John and his family by all the caregivers in the Palliative Care Unit at St. Michael's Hospital. In lieu of flowers, please join John in his living leg

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
