NICHOLLS, Betty
In loving memory of Betty, who passed away on November 30, 1995.
I'd like the memory of me
To be a happy one
I'd like to leave an afterglow
Of smiles when the day is done
I'd like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways
Of happy times and laughing times
And bright sunny days.
I'd like the tears of those who grieve
To dry before the sun
Of happy memories and I leave behind.. when the day is done.
-Beverly, Rick and Debbie, Crystal, Brian, Amanda, Mitchell and Stirling.

Arthur TOWNEND, Architect (1924-2005)
Sudbury practitioner's designs included the stunning Revenue Canada Taxation Data Centre and brought the city into the 21st century
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Friday, September 9, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- Not long after Arthur TOWNEND had designed and erected the first, flat-roofed house in Sudbury, Ontario in 1953, his son Gordon came home from school a little perplexed after his teacher had asked him to produce a drawing of their family home.
Gordon asked his father why he wanted a flat-roofed house erected and his father replied, "So Santa Claus and his reindeer can land safely with their sleigh on Christmas Eve." Whether it was flat roofs or other projects, Arthur TOWNEND's work as an architect was unique, contemporary and modern -- all characteristics that arose from his empathy for the famed American architect Frank Lloyd Wright.
Thanks to Mr. TOWNEND, the stereotype image of Sudbury as a depressing, rough, transient, mining town built on unforgiving Cambrian Shield rock was dramatically swept aside. His imaginative approach to architecture changed the cityscape, whether it was the Civic Square municipal government office project, the huge Revenue Canada Taxation Data Centre, the original Laurentian Hospital, or St. Andrew's Place (a combined United Church and senior citizens' complex). He also designed hospitals in the Ontario communities of Sault Ste. Marie, Smooth Rock Falls and Thunder Bay, and fashioned a nautical-themed look with a multi-curved roof for the Canadian Coast Guard building in Parry Sound, Ontario
He is also responsible for 17 rather spiffy houses, most of them built in the tony Ramsay Lake section of the city. They are desirable, prized and elegant properties. "Anything designed by Arthur is a very classical home, compared to the modern bungalows." said Blaine NICHOLLS, one of Mr. TOWNEND's former partners.
"Arthur took Sudbury into the 21st century," said Janna Ramsay BEST, who is an acknowledged TOWNEND expert. "It's a mining town that has become a sophisticated regional capital and a Northern Ontario hub for education, health and government, and Arthur played a big part in that.
"Sudburians were very accepting of Arthur's cosmopolitan vision which brought pleasing contemporary architecture to Sudbury that was synonymous with progress," said Ms. BEST, who, as an M.A. student at Laurentian University, wrote a 160-page thesis titled The Architectural Imagination of S. Arthur TOWNEND. "He helped bring the latest styles and techniques to a city on the verge of change and expansion."
Sidney Arthur TOWNEND was born under a table in Banes, Cuba, during a hurricane. He spent his first three years on the Caribbean island where his parents operated United Food Company. Later, his parents moved to Union Hill, Jamaica, where he was raised on a family-owned plantation that employed 150 workers.
He left home as a young man to attend McGill University in Montreal where he first studied engineering and then switched to architecture. In the fall of 1942, he answered a wartime call for students to help the farmers of Western Canada bring in that year's harvest. He was placed on a squalid farm near Regina where he soon came down with polio. He spent a month in hospital in Regina until McGill officials arranged for him to be transported back to Montreal. Most of the next year was spent recuperating in Jamaica and he did not return to McGill until the fall of 1943.
Mr. TOWNEND graduated in 1948 and found a job with the Sudbury architect Louis FABBRO, who, three years before, had given him a summer internship. He fell in love with Sudbury and the North, resisting the pleas of family and Friends who tried to persuade him to return to Jamaica. He also fell in love with a girl. Soon after joining Mr. FABBRO, he and a draftsman from the firm were riding a bus when they noticed a pretty young lady standing on the sidewalk. "I'm going to marry that girl," Mr. TOWNEND told the draftsman.
Sure enough, he did. After meeting Evelyn SHEAHAN several days later at a dance, he proposed on their first date.
Meanwhile, building projects piled up at the firm. Mr. FABBRO was one of the few Sudbury architects to receive contracts during a time when most of the new buildings in town were designed by big-city firms that sent plans up North without studying the sites or understanding the climate and environment of Northeastern Ontario.
After a number of years in partnership with Mr. FABBRO, Mr. TOWNEND broke away to freelance. As a result of intuition, aggressiveness and the pressing demands of a growing family, he landed a job in 1964 to design the new Laurentian Hospital.
"It was risky for Arthur to leave Mr. FABBRO because he had eight mouths to feed so he was very happy to get the hospital project," Evelyn TOWNEND said.
It was also the beginning of a partnership involving Mr. TOWNEND, John STEFURA, Corky BALESHTA and Mr. NICHOLLS.
"Laurentian Hospital is very modern-looking considering it's over 30 years old," Mr. NICHOLLS said. "Hospitals are very complex inside, especially from a functional perspective... not just for staff, but visitors. Arthur was able to do something great with it. It was supposed to be a whitish colour on the outside but the hospital people wanted to save $50,000 so it became a brown colour."
The Civic Square building (now called Tom Davies Square) also boasted a distinct TOWNEND flavour. It wasn't a stock approach to a government building. Instead, Mr. TOWNEND designed a four-level building and all the levels open to a common public space and atrium.
"Arthur broke away from the typical departmentalized approach to an office building," Mr. NICHOLLS said.
He applied the same approach in the early 1970s when he designed the federal taxation centre, the place where thousands of Canadians send their tax returns. Once the site of Sudbury Stadium, which housed several baseball fields, the taxation centre was designed to open up two main levels to an open atrium space that doubled as a dining area. He designed it in such a way as to produce natural light into a lobby area, making it attractive for staff and visitors. To blend buildings in harmony with nature, he gave the exterior a light-coloured skin of pre-cast cement.
"Arthur looked at the site to see how the site would do for the building not what the building would do for the site," Mr. STEFURA said.
In 1986, Mr. TOWNEND's firm obtained the contract for the Northeastern Ontario Regional Cancer Centre (located at Laurentian Hospital) and he retired two years later.
Over the years, he won two national design awards but chose not to write about his projects. He acknowledged that while many of his fellow architects were very good at writing about architecture, he chose not to do it himself. "I'd rather the buildings speak for themselves," he said.
Sidney Arthur TOWNEND was born in Banes, Cuba on November 8, 1924. He died in Sudbury, Ontario on July 9, 2005 after several years of frail health. He is survived by his wife Evelyn and children Gordon, Arthur, Deborah, Mary, Barbara, John and Jane.
