A Tribute To Marion
(written by one of Marion's special Friends)
Such a special friend is so hard to find, and we were so blessed to call you "mine".
You cherished your family with love and pride, and graciously took each day in stride.
Together with Bruce you shared a wonderful life, you each chose so well for a husband and wife.
Your children you cherished, your precious grandchildren as well, with each new arrival your heart would swell.
Your gardens, your flowers you tended with care, your gifts and your talents you would unselfishly share.
Your quiet little chuckle, your beautiful brown eyes, your welcoming home, your meals and your pies.
As a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a grandma, an aunt, a niece or a friend, you loved each and everyone right to the end.
In cards we were told we didn't play our hands, so we laughed and we chuckled and tried a new plan.
But trying to play like the men soon went amuck, because they really never had a plan.. just plain old luck.
A campfire, a New Years eve party, a visit... whatever, we always had such a great time together
We will cherish always these wonderful things, especially now that you've been given your angel wings.
We know not what the Lord has in His plan, so we will carry on bravely and try to understand.
Your journey has been such an incredible one, but far too soon, that journey was done.
Your reward in Heaven will be great I know, for your faith and your courage you would always show.
Some days like these in life it seems the pleasures are few, but we only have to recall what a pleasure it was to have a friend like you!

Zenardo built homes and communities in Georgian Triangle
By Michael GENNINGS, Page 29
Dennis ZANARDO, a man who not only built hundreds of homes in Wasaga Beach but invested in its community infrastructure, died Monday following what family members say was a short and courageous six-week battle with liver cancer.
His life was celebrated by an estimated 450 people Thursday at the Wasage Beach RecPlex, a facility the man played a role in building.
He was 51.
Marilyn RUTTAN, his companion for much of the last 12 years, said that during his fight with cancer he was always optimistic about the outcome.
ZANARDO was intimately associated with the local residential construction industry. He was associated with Fernbrook Homes and jointly owned Zancor Homes, a company with residential subdivision developments in Collingwood, Wasaga Beach and Stayner.
RUTTAN said ZANARDO, a Brampton native who enjoyed some success as a high school basketball player before entering the family business, will be missed by a number of people.
Wasaga Beach mayor Cal PATTERSON recalled ZANARDO, a close friend, on Monday afternoon.
"I think his character is what will be remembered," he said. "Dennis was one of those larger than life guys.
PATTERSON said that ZANARDO, a jovial six-foot, four-inch man, loved Wasaga Beach and its people. The mayor added that ZANARDO, who owned part of Zancor Homes, was always trying to find a way to better the community.
ZANARDO donated the landscaping for the new library when it opened about 10 years ago. He donated the building in which the Wasaga Beach Chamber of Commerce is now located and the brick canteen building at the Wasaga Beach Sports Park and was a big financial contributor each year to the Carly Patterson Memorial Golf Tournament.
"There are so many things Dennis did for Wasaga Beach," PATTERSON said.
His generosity extended beyond the Beach. ZANARDO also gave financially to Collingwood General and Marine Hospital.
One of his favourite annual things was the Christmas party he threw for Friends and owners of Zancor houses. ZANARDO's one condition was that people bring a toy for children of less fortunate families.
"I spent Saturday with him. I was there about seven hours. Dennis was a really good friend. My children called him Uncle Dennis and when my daughter died he was right there by my side," PATTERSON explained.
PATTERSON's 22-year-old daughter, Carly, died from Hodgkins Disease in 1998.
ZANARDO tried to win a council seat in the early years but failed, the mayor remembered.
Former mayor Walter BORTHWICK also spoke fondly of ZANARDO on Monday. He said their relationship started off professionally about 15 years ago but added it quickly developed into a Friendship.
"Dennis was such a warm and generous individual," BORTHWICK said. "I'm sure to some, that because he was a big fellow who worked in construction, he seemed a bit rough around the edges but he was a very good man."
Paul PULLMAN was also Friends with ZANARDO, who people lovingly called Dennis the Menace. He said they met through a real estate broker in 1992 when PULLMAN, a freight broker, moved to Wasaga.
"He was a gregarious guy who had a heart of gold," PULLMAN said. "He was always helping people out when they were in trouble."
Simcoe-Grey member of provincial parliament Jim WILSON said Monday he was saddened to learn of ZANARDO's death.
"Dennis was a big supporter for all of my (political) years and yet he never asked for anything. He was a big fellow and his heart matched his size," WILSON said. "He was much too young to die."
ZANARDO is survived by his mother Jean, sister Nadine and brother Eric.

Community builder dies after battling cancer
Memorial service set for Thursday in Wasaga
By Michael GENNINGS, Page 8
Dennis ZANARDO, a man who not only built hundreds of homes in Wasaga Beach but invested in its community infrastructure, died Monday following what family members say was a short and courageous six-week battle with liver cancer.
He was 51.
Marilyn RUTTAN, his companion for much of the last 12 years, said that during his fight with cancer he was always optimistic about the outcome!
RUTTAN said ZANARDO, a Brampton native who enjoyed some success as a high school basketball player before entering the family business, will be missed by a number of people.
"He was definitely loved," she said.
Wasaga Beach mayor Cal PATTERSON recalled ZANARDO, a close friend, on Monday afternoon.
"I think his character is what will be remembered," he said. "Dennis was one of those larger than life guys.
PATTERSON said that ZANARDO, a jovial six-foot, four-inch man, loved Wasaga Beach and its people. The mayor added that ZANARDO, who owned part of Zancor Homes, was always trying to find a way to better the community.
"Dennis felt he could never do enough," PATTERSON said.
His touch can be found in countless places around town. For exam pie, PATTERSON said that ZANARDO donated the landscaping for the new library when it opened about 10 years ago. As well, he donated the building in which the Wasaga Beach Chamber of Commerce is now located.
ZANARDO also donated the brick canteen building at the Wasaga Beach Sports Park and was a big financial contributor each year to the Carly Patterson Memorial Golf Tournament.
"There are so many things Dennis did for Wasaga Beach," PATTERSON said.

"I spent Saturday with him. I was there about seven hours. Dennis was a really good friend. My children called him Uncle Dennis and when my daughter died he was right there by my side," PATTERSON explained.
His 22-year-old daughter, Carly, died from Hodgkins Disease in ZANARDO and PATTERSON first met about 16 years ago shortly after the developer began work in the community. Along with building homes here and giving back to Wasaga, ZANARDO tried to win a council seat in the early years but failed, the mayor remembered.
PATTERSON said he learned of ZANARDO's death early Monday morning, around 4 a.m. He said that he went over to the house to be with RUTTAN.
Former mayor Walter BORTHWICK also spoke fondly of ZANARDO on Monday. He said their relationship started off professionally about 15 years ago but added it quickly developed into a Friendship.
"Dennis was such a warm and generous individual," BORTHWICK said. "I'm sure to some, that because he was a big fellow who worked in construction, he seemed a bit rough around the edges but he was a very good man."
It was just a week ago. that BORTHWICK said he popped in to see ZANARDO.
"We had a good chat and did a lot of catching up. Quite frankly I knew he wasn't well but I was really surprised when I got the phone call this morning."
BORTHWICK later added that "Dennis was one of those people who made it very easy to remember the good times now that he is no longer with us."
Paul PULLMAN was also Friends with ZANARDO, who people lovingly called Dennis the Menace. He said they met through a real estate broker in 1992 when PULLMAN, a freight broker, moved to Wasaga.
"We just hit it off," PULLMAN said. He recalled they often went for lunch, would play cards, visit Casino Rama near Orillia or just get together for some drinks.
"He was a gregarious guy who had a heart of gold," PULLMAN said. "He was always helping people out when they were in trouble."
PULLMAN noted he last saw ZANARDO Sunday.
"He couldn't really talk but he understood what we said. We communicated by holding hands and I talked to him."
Simcoe-Grey member of provincial parliament Jim WILSON said Monday he was saddened to learn of ZANARDO's death.
"Dennis was a big supporter for all of my (political) years and yet he never asked for anything. He was a big fellow and his heart matched his size," WILSON said. "He was much too young to die."
Former Wasaga clerk Eric COLLINGWOOD remarked that from his first meeting he knew that the man would do Wasaga proud.
"His dreams were big, the projects were even bigger but being guided by the goodness of his heart many of these dreams and projects became reality." The Town of Wasaga Beach has grown and prospered from just knowing 'Dennis the Menace'," said COLLINGWOOD.
Despite ZANARDO's fun-loving and hard working ethic, he was also a big reader, RUTTAN said.
"I don't think many people knew that," she added.
Every day ZANARDO would read The Toronto Star, The Globe and Mail, The National Post and The Toronto Sun.
She said he also read local community newspapers in the area.
"He always wanted to see them the day they came out," she said.
ZANARDO enjoyed a good relationship with the Metroland newspaper chain, which includes The Sun. He often called the newspaper in the late 1990s to let reporters know of charity events he was corporately supporting, but shied away himself from the limelight.
A service in memory of ZANARDO is scheduled for Thursday at the RecPlex, 1724 Mosley Street, from 1 a.m. to 2 p.m. The family asks that donations in memory of ZANARDO be made to the RecPlex. ZANARDO was on the committee that oversees fundraising for the multi-use facility,
ZANARDO is survived by his mother Jean, sister Nadine and brother Eric.

Gerry PATTERSON, Sports Agent 1933-2005
Starting with Jean Beliveau, he managed his clients in the style of big business. Nancy Greene, Guy Lafleur, Gordie Howe, Don Cherry and many others soon followed
By Allison LAWLOR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Thursday, February 10, 2005 - Page S7
Forever the optimist, Gerry PATTERSON set out boldly in the late 1960s to become the Mark McCormack of Canada. Based on the American sports marketing giant's business model, Mr. PATTERSON introduced a daring new way to manage sports stars in Canada. His pioneering idea was to run an athlete in the style of big business. "I am not an agent, but a corporate manager," he once told a reporter.
Mr. PATTERSON decided early that, if he were going to make it in the competitive sports world, he had to start at the top. Like Mr. McCormack, who got his start in 1960 with a young golfer named Arnold Palmer and from there built his IMG empire, Mr. PATTERSON decided he needed a sports icon of his own. He set his sights on Montreal Canadiens legend Jean Beliveau.
After a long and difficult courting period that included many days and nights of negotiating around Mr. PATTERSON's dining-room table, he and Mr. Beliveau shook hands in 1969.
"He wouldn't take no for an answer," said Scott PATTERSON, his son. "It's like he just wouldn't go away."
Mr. PATTERSON quit his marketing job at Canadian International Paper in Montreal and was soon following through on his promise to make Mr. Beliveau a lot of money in the marketplace. He worked out deals that saw the hockey legend's face on milk cartons, in General Motors commercials and as the spokesman for Scotiabank. The success was so big that Jean Beliveau Inc. was soon created.
At that time, Mr. PATTERSON also formed his company, Sports Management Inc., which would use the Beliveau model for baseball slugger Rusty Staub, Olympic ski champion Nancy Greene, and hockey greats Guy Lafleur and Gordie Howe. Don Cherry also credits Mr. PATTERSON for getting him on television and radio.
It was a year after signing on Mr. Beliveau that Mr. PATTERSON added Mr. Howe to his growing stable of top athletes. The handshake followed a Saturday night pre-game dinner with Mr. Beliveau, Mr. Howe, Mr. PATTERSON and his business partner, Jerry PETRIE. It was Mr. PATTERSON who would later negotiate the deal that saw Mr. Howe come out of retirement in 1973 to play with his sons Mark and Marty on the World Hockey Association's Houston Aeros.
"He was a giant," said Ralph MELLANBY, former executive producer of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Television's Hockey Night in Canada. "He changed the fabric of sport in Canada."
Born in the Niagara region of Ontario, Gerry PATTERSON was the son of Martha and Herald PATTERSON, an oil-truck deliveryman. The family moved to Windsor, Ontario, when Mr. PATTERSON was still a young boy. A sports enthusiast all his life, he played basketball and baseball as a kid, but didn't have as much luck when it came to football. Mr. MELLANBY, who attended the same high school as Mr. PATTERSON, remembers during a tryout for the junior football team of having his affable friend threaten to become a cheerleader if he didn't beat him. Mr. PATTERSON followed through on his threat and ended up on the school cheerleading team. As luck would have it, he met and married a fellow team member named Wilma.
After high school, Mr. PATTERSON moved to Hamilton, where he took a management training program with Ford Motor Co. Years later, he would be back in Steeltown trying to bring in a National Hockey League franchise. In 1990, after two years of work, Mr. PATTERSON swallowed a bitter rejection pill. His consortium had lost its bid.
In 1962, he moved his family to Montreal. Despite his climb up the management ladder at Canadian International Paper, Mr. PATTERSON itched to follow his dream of marketing athletes. Aside from starting Sports Management Inc., he also co-owned Special Event Television with Mr. MELLANBY. The company produced several shows, including Mr. Cherry's Grapevine, Howie Meeker Pro Tips and Duke Snider's Baseball Pro Tips.
Mr. PATTERSON is credited with starting to market the Grapes nickname by which Mr. Cherry is known to Friends and television fans. The nickname is said to have come from an encounter with the late Eddie Shore, who dismissed an argument over money by saying, "That's just sour grapes."
Mr. PATTERSON and Mr. MELLANBY invented Grapevine and got the Hamilton television show going in the early 1980s. It later moved to national distribution. Mr. PATTERSON also suggested Mr. Cherry's Grapevines restaurant chain, but he dropped out after a two-year search for the right location in Hamilton.
"Gerry took me under his wing when I came [to Ontario] from Colorado," said Mr. Cherry, referring to his return to Canada in 1981 after being fired by the Colorado Rockies after one season.
Before long, he was helping out Mr. Cherry, who was feeling down on his luck, by lining up speaking engagements in small towns across Ontario. In those days, Mr. Cherry didn't draw the crowds he does today. Sometimes, he'd look out at the audience and see only a handful of faces, including that of his short, pudgy, ever-smiling friend, Gerry PATTERSON.
"He'd be the only one laughing," Mr. Cherry said.
One night, while driving to a speaking event together, Mr. Cherry performed a trial run of a new speech he had written. It was 20-minute motivational talk, and Mr. PATTERSON wasn't impressed. "Horseshit," he told Mr. Cherry. "Grapes, people just want to hear you and your stories. People don't want to be lectured on life."
In 1981, Mr. PATTERSON really came through for his friend when he marched into CFRB in Toronto and told the radio executives that he wanted to get Mr. Cherry on a sports talk show. After being told there were 100 guys just like Mr. Cherry vying for the same shot, Mr. PATTERSON pulled out a $91,000 cheque and put it on the table.
"Gerry got me on the radio," Mr. Cherry said. "The first week I said to Gerry, 'Do you think we'll have enough stories for the rest of the week?' "
Today, the syndicated radio talk show is played on more than 100 stations and has nearly one million listeners a week.
Despite his success as a sports agent, Mr. PATTERSON, who also served for a time as executive director of the Canadian Football League's Players Association, didn't stay long in the business. In 1974, just five years after starting Sports Management Inc., he sold his company to Mr. PETRIE.
"Had he stayed with it, he could have been the Mark McCormack of Canada," said Mr. MELLANBY, who thought his friend made a big mistake by leaving the business.
But, according to Mr. MELLANBY, Mr. PATTERSON had aspirations to become president of the National Hockey League and had been told that he first needed experience. In an effort to learn the ropes, he took over as commissioner of the National Lacrosse League. When he left the National Lacrosse League, he moved on to several different things, including director of marketing for CCM Canada, and as a consultant to the Montreal Olympics. He also published a book called Behind the Superstars: The Business Side of Sports.
He had completed another manuscript for a self-help book he meant to bring out under the title "Suxxess" but hadn't published it. Known for his positive sayings, even his car's licence plate had one: UCANXL.
"I never saw Gerry without a smile on his face," Mr. Cherry said.
Gerry PATTERSON was born on August 19, 1933, in Humberstone, Ontario, a community now part of Port Colborne. He died in St. Catharines, Ontario, on January 21 of a heart attack while out walking his dog. He was 71. He is survived by his wife, Trudy, daughters Jill and Myla, sons Scott, Kevin and Kim, sisters Dolores and Carol, and brother Wayne.

Tom PATTERSON, Impresario: 1920-2005
He was a hometown boy not long returned from the Second World War when he had the bright idea of holding a Shakespeare festival in Stratford, Ontario, writes John ALLEMANG. In 1953, employing a combination of enthusiasm, chutzpah, good luck and characteristic innocence, he pulled it off
By John ALLEMANG, Thursday, February 24, 2005 - Page S7
Tom PATTERSON, the man whose dreams and determination brought the Stratford Festival to life, has shuffled off his mortal coil.
Shakespearean quotes weren't his line when as a young war veteran he first set out to bring summer theatre to a small southwestern Ontario hometown that improbably was filled with references to the Bard. Stratford in the 1940s may have had a Romeo St. and a King Lear public school and a river Avon where graceful white swans nipped at anyone trying to get too friendly. But it was no outpost of high culture - a steam-locomotive repair plant dominated the local economy, and the idea of a Shakespearean festival in the heart of Ontario farm country should have been dismissed as utter craziness.
Steam turned into diesel, the plant was declared redundant, and suddenly a failing Stratford was open to the inspired lunacy that propelled Tom PATTERSON through life. Though his theatre experience was largely limited to the London music halls he'd patronized during the war - even as a much-feted luminary later in life, he was happy to declare that he didn't know "one damn thing" about the dramatic arts -- he couldn't shake off the marketing man's logic that a place named Stratford should have its own stage.
In 1951, barely 30 years old and something of an itinerant journalist who specialized in writing about sewage plants for Civic Administrator magazine, he took his idea forward to the Stratford town council. The key to understanding the unlikely success of the festival can be seen in what followed - Tom PATTERSON was able to convince a sober group of Ontario burghers that a theatre was a dream worth pursuing, a sign both that Mr. PATTERSON possessed rare powers of persuasion and that the small-town leaders were a lot less sober and a lot more daring than they're ordinarily given credit for.
In 1952, Mr. PATTERSON was dispatched to New York City, reckoned to be the capital of the theatre world, with $125 of civic funds. He admitted in his autobiography First Stage that he didn't quite know how one went about starting a theatre festival, but such innocence was always his greatest asset. He decided to seek the advice and support of Laurence Olivier, who was then appearing on Broadway. When getting through to Lord Olivier proved impossible, Mr. PATTERSON talked his way into the Rockefeller Foundation, which enabled him to report back to his Stratford team in his highly exaggerated way that the Rockefellers were on side - he threw in Lord Olivier's name as well, to tide himself over until he had a comparable big name to wave around.
By the next year, he had those names: Tyrone GUTHRIE, Alec Guinness and Irene Worth all agreed to launch a project that would never have happened if they'd reacted with Lord Olivier's common sense. It was one thing to talk about bringing a theatre to Stratford (PATTERSON's early idea was that performances could be held in the town band shell). But to lure the most restless thinker of the British theatre along with two of the genre's leading actors to an empty lot above the small town's baseball diamond - that took some extraordinary combination of enthusiasm, chutzpah and good luck.
Mr. PATTERSON found Mr. GUTHRIE at exactly the right time. The Irish director was obsessed with the idea of producing Shakespeare on a thrust stage that would project right into the surrounding audience and supply the kind of Elizabethan intimacy theatre lost when it moved into the proscenium setting. In England, people scoffed.
He was open to the idea of starting something new, and came to Stratford as artistic adviser in 1952 to see what could be done. In his memoirs, Mr. PATTERSON tells of the subterfuge he'd dreamed up to help win over the sophisticated Irishman to his new setting. Fearful that Stratford's plain-looking downtown might not impress a man used to London's West End, Mr. PATTERSON as chauffeur took a detour along the more presentable Avon and pointed out the rise of turf along the river where both of them could fulfill their dreams.
"His perseverance was indomitable," Mr. GUTHRIE later observed.
Mr. PATTERSON needn't have worried. His future artistic director was no snob, and acted as if he was right at home in the Ontario town, spending half the night drinking and talking with his hotel clerk to get a feel for the spirit of the place. His only real concern was the question of the thrust stage, and the likelihood of something so revolutionary getting a hearing in a conservative Canadian town.
But Stratford's leaders were too practical-minded to be caught up in parochial squabbles about which stage was best. Mr. GUTHRIE had been recommended to them by Dora Mavor Moore, the doyenne of Canadian theatre. If he wanted a thrust stage, so be it.
Mr. GUTHRIE was supremely well-connected, and Mr. PATTERSON found it easier to make his pitch to leading actors after that. While the Festival from the start was determined to make use of Canadian talent - William Hutt, Don Harron and Timothy Findley were among those in the inaugural casts - it was felt that name performers such as Mr. Guinness were needed to get the festival going and ensure that the banks didn't foreclose on the local worthies who'd put their assets up for security. Mr. PATTERSON was also helped by the London connections of his former employer at Civic Administrator magazine, arts patron and Maclean-Hunter chairman Floyd CHALMERS. Making Friends in high places was never a problem for Stratford's first general manager.
Though general manager was his title, Mr. PATTERSON had no gift for the finicky details of administration, and was more likely to be found playing pinochle with actor Jason Robards than analyzing a balance sheet. His methods belonged more to the seat-of-the-pants school of getting things done fast and moving forward. When it came to pricing tickets for the opening night of July 13, 1953, he didn't commission economic studies or embark on a fact-finding mission. Instead, he just bought a New York paper, checked the prices of the best theatres and decided that Stratford should have the bravado to match them.
His high-energy, anything-is-possible style was more of an asset, especially in the festival's feverish first year. Alec Guinness had it written into his contract that he could walk away from the production of Richard III if the Stratford's first tent theatre wasn't ready for rehearsals three weeks before opening night. In fact, the theatre wasn't ready until a week before first night. Until then, the celebrated stars of the London stage made do with a tin-roofed barn filled with mating sparrows. And when they moved over to the festival theatre, it was discovered from Mr. Guinness' first soliloquy that the newly laid concrete bowl effectively muffled all sound.
Members of the Stratford board were pressed into service stapling custom-designed matting into the concrete. On a sweltering opening night, all went splendidly - church bells pealed, a regimental cannon was fired, Louis Applebaum's brass fanfare resounded, and a crazy dream came to be in a tent theatre where you could hear the screams of the town's baseball players on the adjacent diamond.
Nothing in his later life could match that moment for Tom PATTERSON, but he had too much joie de vivre to mind the inevitable conflicts that a growing enterprise created. As Stratford's general manager, he felt more at home with actors than with other managers. "He enjoyed life, sang a lot and had a great time," actor Barry MacGregor last year said of his friend.
After the festival's first year, Mr. PATTERSON founded the touring theatrical company Canadian Players with actor Douglas Campbell, and later served as founding director of the Canadian Theatre Centre, founding president of the National Theatre School of Canada, and founder of the Dawson City Gold Rush Festival. He worked with the Stratford Festival until 1969, when he joined a consulting company. A year later, he criticized the festival organization for being out of touch with local interests. He later described himself as a freelance theatre consultant and worked on arts festivals across North America.
As time passed, Stratford became better able to single out the contribution he'd made to its success and dedicated the Tom Patterson Theatre to him. The town of Stratford also named an island in the Avon after its least solitary citizen - by that point, his store of quotations was good enough for him to joke how Donne was wrong in insisting that no man is an island.
Tributes had come his way long before. In 1967, he was made a member of the Order of Canada in 1967 and promoted to officer 10 years later. He also received honorary degrees from the University of Toronto and the University of Western Ontario.
"I can safely say I think (PATTERSON) has done more as an ambassador of goodwill than any leader of our country has ever done," the Montreal-born Christopher Plummer said yesterday. The actor has performed often at the festival.
In his later years, Mr. PATTERSON was beset by ill health, suffering both a tracheotomy and laryngectomy that took away most of his vocal power but in no way deprived him of his ability to command a room. He spent his last years in the veterans wing of Toronto's Sunnybrook Hospital, where he was renowned as a live wire. Despite his disabilities, he still found ways to get back to Stratford - for two seasons he organized a visit for his fellow hospital residents, who delighted as much in seeing their comrade applauded by the appreciative crowds as they did in theatre's more Shakespearean moments. On one trip, he strayed from the group to visit with the actors and actually managed to get himself locked up in the theatre for several hours.
By this time, the ebullient Tom PATTERSON could talk only in short bursts through a often-wonky voice amplifier, but it in no way subdued his good humour. When someone generously observed that he was looking well on his final visit to Stratford, Mr. PATTERSON replied, in his amplifier's deadened monotone, "I don't think I could play Darth Vader with this thing."
Harry Thomas PATTERSON was born in Stratford, Ontario, on June 11, 1920. He died on yesterday at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto after a long illness. He was 84. He is survived by his wife, Pat, and by children Bob, Tim, Lucy Ann and Lyle Scott. He was predeceased by his daughter, Penny. Funeral information was not immediately available, but the festival plans a memorial service on March 13.

Remembering Stratford's founder
Canadian Press, Tuesday, March 15, 2005 Page R4
Stratford, Ontario -- Joyful recollections shared the stage with tearful, dramatic moments at Stratford Festival's memorial for its founder, Tom PATTERSON.
"He changed the cultural landscape of this country and was a man who made Canada a better place to be," the festival's artistic director, Richard MONETTE, told the audience of about 900 at a service on the weekend in the Festival Theatre in Stratford, Ontario
PATTERSON, a Stratford native, died at 84 in Toronto on February 23, after a long battle with illness.
In 1951, PATTERSON, a 30-year-old journalist and Second World War veteran, began to pursue his long-held vision of establishing a theatre festival in Stratford that would present the classic works of William Shakespeare.
To research his project, he garnered a $125 grant from Stratford's city council -- "a shrewd investment," MONETTE quipped -- and travelled to New York in a futile attempt to meet the great British actor Laurence Olivier. He had better luck recruiting artistic director Tyrone Guthrie.
On July 13, 1953, the Stratford Festival premiered with a production of Richard III, starring famous British actor Alec Guinness.
From that modest start, noted the festival board's current chairperson, Tom ORR, the stage company grew to become North America's largest classical repertory theatre with four stages, 1,000 employees and a $52-million operating budget.
It generates more than $145-million in annual revenue for the festival and the local economy.
"Tom invented the festival, but he invented all of us as well. He invented us actors and the audience," actor Christopher Plummer said in a poignant salute Sunday to "that tenacious little firebrand and maker of miracles."
"Every time I walk onto this stage, every board I tread on cries out, 'Tom PATTERSON,' Plummer said.
Tim PATTERSON remembered his father as a master storyteller, a keen gardener and an accomplished chef.
"He was an eternal optimist who always saw the bright side of life," he said.
PATTERSON was named a member of the Order of Canada in 1967 and, 10 years later, was raised to the level of officer. In 1991, the festival renamed its third stage the Tom PATTERSON Theatre.

Arthur WOOD, Pedodontist And Inventor: 1917-2005
Ontario dentist and minor-hockey coach helped develop the mouthguard. At first, young players rejected his device but later he became at least to parents -- a real-life tooth fairy
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail; Globe and Mail archives, Wednesday, August 17, 2005, Page S9
As a children's dentist, Arthur WOOD was appalled by the injuries caused by hockey pucks. Young patients filled his dental chair every winter, presenting mouthfuls of what were known among their peers as bloody Chiclets.
After a neighbour's son suffered broken teeth, Mr. WOOD made it his calling to end what he regarded as needless damage.
What he devised, with the help of Charlie PATTERSON and others, would cause the dentist to later be known as the Father of the Mouthguard.
He received many honours for his invention, not the least of which was the Order of Canada.
The son of a nurse and a store owner, Arthur WOOD was born in rural Saskatchewan near Estevan, about 20 kilometres from the North Dakota border. He learned to play hockey outdoors, stuffing department-store catalogues down his socks to act as shin guards. Like many of his future patients, he had no protection for his teeth.
In 1935, Gopher, as he had been nicknamed, was hired as a teacher at public schools, although the deprivations of the Depression forced him to defer some of his salary. He would later note with satisfaction that he had been paid in full, a decade after retiring as a teacher.
Mr. WOOD enrolled at the University of Toronto in 1938, completing a doctor of dental surgery degree in 1943. He married that same year and became a member of the Canadian Dental Corps with the rank of captain. Mr. WOOD served in Britain, Europe and Asia, although the only action he saw was hand-to-mouth combat. His final posting came aboard H.M.C.S. Ontario, a light cruiser serving in the Pacific, in 1946.
After the war, the dentist returned to the classroom for post-graduate studies in pediatric dentistry. He studied at the University of Illinois and Northwestern University in 1948 and 1949 under a fellowship provided by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
He returned to Canada for a position in the University of Toronto dentistry faculty. He would later become president of the Canadian Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. He was also president of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada and served on the board of the American Academy of Pedodontics.
Mr. WOOD maintained his boyhood passion for hockey throughout his life. In the 1950s, he became president of the Cooksville Hockey Association in what is now suburban Mississauga, Ontario He also coached a boy's team. With so many players becoming patients, he began to wonder if something couldn't be done to protect them.
The last straw landed in the early 1960s when a 17-year-old neighbour, who had only just had his teeth straightened, gave up four of his young pearlies to a hockey stick. Mr. WOOD got to work on some sort of protector that players would wear in their mouths.
At about the same time, Mr. PATTERSON, a researcher at York University who was also a fellow Cooksville coach, began tinkering with hockey helmets after his son, Dan, suffered a concussion in a nasty spill. At the time, helmets were little more than a leather skullcap. From there, the two men collaborated on developing what was known at first as a "mug guard" or "teeth guard." They also worked together on helmets.
In 1954, Mr. WOOD made mandatory for his players the wearing of his dental protector. By 1961, the equipment had become obligatory for all skaters in what was then the Toronto Township Hockey League.
He made a presentation about his innovation to the annual convention of the Ontario Dental Association the following May. In time, the mouthguard was adopted across the country, becoming an essential piece of protective equipment in hockey and many other contact sports.
"As a pediatric dentist, I used to see 200 hockey accidents a year," Mr. WOOD told the Toronto Star in 1991. "Now there are practically nil."
Still, the culture of the national game was such that many junior, senior and professional players refused to wear the gear, as though missing teeth were emblematic of a devil-may-care ferocity.
Mr. PATTERSON's head gear was also dismissed by some as an attempt to sissify a man's sport. Not until the start of the 1979-80 season was the wearing of helmets made compulsory for new players entering the National Hockey League. By that time, a generation which had grown up with unbroken smiles and uncracked skulls had climbed to the pro ranks.
Later, he took to visiting high school, university, even National Hockey League locker rooms to gather feedback from athletes. "Every year we try to build a better mousetrap," he once said.
Less well known was his work on building what he called "Allan Average," a kind of adjustable head form that could be used for testing all sizes of helmets. Along the way, he also became interested in developing mouth protection for basketball players.
Mr. WOOD's concern for safety also extended beyond dental well-being. He helped found the local traffic safety council in 1956, for which he later devised a "Kiss and Ride" drop-off program for schoolchildren and parents.
Even at age 75, he could be found at curbside making inspections on behalf of the council, which honoured him by appointment as a life member.
The dentist was inducted into the Mississauga Sports Hall of Fame in 1984. He was appointed a member of the Order of Canada in 1991. "It is gratifying to be a member of a team that greatly reduced facial and dental injuries," he said at the time.
His family says he never held a patent on any of his designs, taking as his reward the knowledge that athletic children could reach adulthood with their teeth intact.
Arthur WOOD was born on June 22, 1917, at Alameda, Saskatchewan. He died on July 11 at home in Mississauga, Ontario He was 88. He leaves his wife Mary Ruth, known as Molly; sons Peter WOOD of Toronto and John Kenneth (Kim) WOOD of Dallas, Texas; daughter Mary Sue Phillips of Ottawa; and seven grandchildren.

Charles Clarence "Clare" LAKING, Veteran (1899-2005)
Canadian veteran of First World War learned hard work on the front lines
By Joe FRIESEN and David PYETTE, Monday, November 28, 2005, Page S11
Clare LAKING, a farm boy from Campbellville, Ontario, who never finished high school, volunteered for the Great War to spite his father and narrowly avoided being killed on his first trip to the front.
The first shell he saw landed 45 metres away. He started wondering what he had gotten himself into. A second shell came so close that he dropped to the ground in terror. Before he could get up, a third shell landed right in his trench, showering him with dirt and debris.
Mr. LAKING survived his first brush with death, and lived through many more in his two years as a signalman who repaired communication lines at the front.
Mr. LAKING died Saturday at the age of 106. There are now only four Canadian veterans of the First World War still living.
Charles Clarence LAKING, named for his father Charles, but known as Clare, was born on February 21, 1899, on a farm in Southern Ontario. He attended a one-room school five kilometres from his home, and grew up playing hockey on the flooded, frozen fields near the school.
In an interview a few years before his death, Mr. LAKING, who was always a keen joker despite his strict Methodist upbringing, remembered walking to school with his older brother Bob in a particularly harsh snowstorm. When they arrived, they were the only ones there.
"The storm was too severe for everybody else. We had our lunch with us, we were cold and hungry and we didn't want to start back home right away. So we filed the padlock off the door, went out to the woodshed, and got the fire going. We spent most of the day catching mice and putting them in the girls' pencil boxes. Most of the mice smothered before the next morning, but it was still quite a surprise for the girls."
After he finished elementary school, Mr. LAKING commuted by train to a business college in Hamilton for six months. At 16, he took a job in Campbellville with the Bank of Nova Scotia that paid $300 a year.
Two years later, in 1917, he hitched a ride to Guelph and joined the army.
"I went against my father's wishes. He was dead against war, and he was getting under my skin," Mr. LAKING said. "And it was in order -- as much as anything -- to shut him up that I enlisted.
"He as much as told me at the time that, 'If you enlist I'm through with you.' It was a hard decision. Nevertheless, I carried through and enlisted. And when I came back, everything was fine. Everything was forgiven."
Mr. LAKING was sent to England, where he trained as a Morse code operator before being sent to the front.
"In fact I could have had a nice soft job in England for the balance of the war, because they knew I had worked for a bank, and I was in the orderly room for a couple of months there. But I thought: 'I have come this far, let's go on.' "
The next two years were filled with adventure and sorrow, as many of the young Canadians he served with died in battle. But the best feeling came at war's end, as he travelled through liberated villages, and people lined the roads to wave and cheer.
He came home to Canada intending to move to Alberta, but ended up working in lumber yards. It was in the late 1920s that he began courting a legal secretary named Helen PATTERSON.
One night he was on his way to Helen's parents' house for a Saturday supper. He was wearing his best fedora, navy blue overcoat and white silk scarf.
"In those days they had iced toboggan slides in Riverdale Park. I met some boys there who persuaded me to come for a ride on the toboggan. At the bottom of the toboggan slide the light standards were surrounded by manure piles to guard against any accident.
"The toboggan headed right for the manure pile. I was lying on the bottom of the toboggan with the rest of the guys on top of me, so I couldn't get off. I rolled into the manure pile wearing my Sunday best. Then I had to visit Helen's parents."
Nevertheless, they were married in 1929, just before the stock market crash, and a year later their son Keith was born, followed by their daughter Sheila six years later.
In 1941, Mr. LAKING bought his own business, Danforth Wallboard, in Toronto's East End, and kept it for close to 25 years before selling in 1965.
Throughout his life he was an avid fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs and held season tickets until the age of 100. He was to have been honoured at a ceremony at the Air Canada Centre this month, but couldn't attend due to his failing health.
He was also an avid curler, who once scored an rare eight-ender, a feat of perfection when all eight of the team's rocks are closer to the centre circle than any of the opposition's.
"It's a once-in-a-lifetime feat, if you're lucky," he once said.
After retirement, he and Helen travelled the world together and spent time with their grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Helen died in 1993, and Mr. LAKING moved into the veterans residence at Sunnybrook hospital in 2003. He was in good health until a few weeks before his death, and kept a driver's licence until the age of 102.
The four remaining Canadian veterans of the First World War are Lloyd CLEMETT, 105, who is also at Sunnybrook; John BABCOCK, 105, who lives in Spokane, Washington.; William PROCTOR, 106, now residing in Salmon Arm, British Columbia; and Dwight WILSON, 104, a resident of Oshawa, Ontario
