Harry J. BOYLE
By John David HAMILTON, Wednesday, February 9, 2005 - Page S9
John David HAMILTON of Keswick, Ontario, writes about Harry J. BOYLE, whose obituary ran on January 24.
I worked with Harry for many years in radio and television and saw close up his vision and great contribution to the media. One day in 1961, he called me into his office and showed me a short inside-page story in The New York Times that said president John Kennedy was increasing the number of military advisers in Vietnam from 7,000 to 16,000. I said: "So what?" Harry said, "If this isn't stopped, it will usher in one of the worst wars in history." So I asked him what we were expected to do about it? He told me to head up a documentary project to be called The Conscience of Manitoba For a year, a group of us dug into the consciences of politicians, philosophers, theologians, authors and nations, and the programs won many award.
Harry's vision was like that. Among some of his other lesser-known achievements was to "invent" daytime radio programming when he hired Bruno GERUSSI to talk to housewives in the morning. Bruno set the pattern for the late Peter GZOWSKI, and his successor, Shelagh ROGERS.
He also invented a new type of religious programming called Concern with Peter Meggs, a former Anglican minister, as host. The program continues on radio as Tapestry and is a civilized analysis and discussion of many religions and beliefs. Project, his major documentary series for radio, dug into all kinds of unusual areas from taking the 1960s temperatures of America and Canada to concerts of the Red Army Chorus and studies of the changing modern woman.
These programs, along with work done on Assignment, revolutionized the techniques of radio and had a great influence on television when it began using videotape. Earlier, he had also introduced the use of portable reel-to-reel tape recorders.
His freelancers, proudly calling ourselves Boyle's Irregulars, were cordially hated by bureaucracies, without and within the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

WILSON, Dr. W. John, M.D., (F.R.C.PC)
Passed away peacefully at Uxbridge Cottage Hospital on Saturday, February 5th, 2005. John is sadly missed and proudly remembered by his beloved wife Marion, his sons, John (Susanne) and Douglas (Susan,) granddaughters, Erin (Rick ANDREWS) and Sarah (Ken MERCER,) his extended family and the many Friends, colleagues and patients whose lives he touched over 91 years. John's earliest years were spent in the Kirkland Lake area where his father, Dr. John P WILSON, carried on a. general practice serving the local mining communities. Later, the family relocated to Richmond Hill where John grew up, together with his sister Olive 'Betty' and brothers Fred and Eric. In 1937 John realized his dream of following his father into medicine, graduating from the University of Toronto with a specialty in pediatrics. While at medical school John met Marion ROGERS, who was then nursing at the Hospital for Sick Children. John and Marion were married on July 15th 1939 and there began a love that simply grew and inspired all those who knew them. John never missed an opportunity to speak lovingly of 'my bride', words he could barely express without choking up, they were so deeply felt. After they were married he and Marion moved to Richmond Hill and John joined his father in medical practice. Because his father was already known to the community as 'Dr. WILSON', John became known to many colleagues and patients as 'Dr. John', a name by which many Friends continued to know him through the years. When World War 2 began, John enlisted (1940) in the Royal Canadian Air Force as a medical officer and served overseas with the 407 'Demon' Squadron, between April, 1944 and November, 1945, attaining the rank of Squadron Leader. John was also mentioned in dispatches. After the war John and Marion, with their two boys, John and Doug, first resided in East York and later, for many years, in Leaside. During these years he joined the staff of the Hospital for Sick Children and established a highly-respected pediatric practice in the north part of Toronto. In 1967 John accepted an appointment as Chief of Pediatrics at the newly-built Scarborough Centenary Hospital. During the following years, until his retirement in 1984, he experienced all the challenges of being at the leading edge of pediatric care in a community-focused hospital. Many innovations, particularly those aimed at supporting parents in the care of their sick children, were developed at Scarborough Centenary Hospital at that time. It was also during this time that John began a long and dedicated commitment to the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital. After retiring, John and Marion divided their time between life at their beloved Quaker Ridge Farm in Uxbridge and their winter home, and many Friends, at Lake Fairways in North Fort Myers, Florida. In recent years John and Marion remained active and enthusiastic members of the Uxbridge community enjoying golf, Friends and community activities. John was always sustained by the things he loved the most - his devoted family, his Friends, his faith, his love of the care of children and his many memories of a life well-lived. His family, Friends and community now celebrate that wonderful life. Visitation will take place at the Low and Low Uxbridge Chapel, 23 Main Street, Uxbridge, Ontario (905 852 3073) on Thursday, February 10th, 7: 00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., and on Friday, February 11th, 2: 00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. The family would like to extend special thanks to Dr. Brian BATTEN and the staff of the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital for their gentle and skilled care, especially during the past two weeks. At John and Marion's request, a memorial service will be held with the family at a later time. Instead of flowers the family would appreciate donations to the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital Foundation or a charity of choice.

ROGERS, Stan, 1983 -- Died This Day
Thursday, June 2, 2005, Page S9
Singer born in Hamilton, Ontario, on November 29, 1949
Raised in a musical family and sent every summer to Nova Scotia, his first instrument was a birch guitar made by an uncle. He began his professional career at 20 in the wake of the popular singer-songwriter figures of the late 1960s, but soon sought an original identity. "I hit upon the idea of taking my music in a kind of historical context," he told a reporter in 1982. "Looking at the history of my country and its relationship to the rest of the world... I started to write songs that reflected a kind of Canadian spirit." His songs included Northwest Passage, Forty-Five Years, Barrett's Privateers and Make or Break Harbor. He had made four albums for his own Fogerty's Cove labe. "I put myself in the first person," he told the magazine Folk Scene. He enjoyed his popularity at the grassroots level, rising with the success of his records and appearances at festivals. He died on his way home from the Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas. A fire had started in a lavatory aboard an Air Canada flight and, although the DC-9 made a safe emergency landing in Cincinnati, a flash fire occurred on the ground and he was one of 23 people who died of smoke inhalation. He had lived with his wife and four children in Hannon, near Hamilton.

Jerry MEYER, Horse Trainer 1927-2005
Hall of fame trainer had a photographic memory for horses and a soft spot for people down on their luck. He longed to be a jockey and instead ended up with a stable full of champions
By Beverly SMITH, Monday, August 1, 2005, Page S9
They don't make them like Jerry MEYER any more. The Hall of Fame thoroughbred horse trainer was indisputably an original. J.C., as they called him, was one of the old-school horse trainers, consumed by the sport more than by the business, with plenty of room in his heart for a fellow hardboot.
J.C. MEYER had a memory for horses that astonished his peers. He'd see a yearling once at a sale and years later would recognize it, like a familiar face. He knew all the pedigrees and racing records not only of his own horses, but those of every other trainer. "He had a photographic memory," said one of his closest Friends, Lou CAVALARIS, also a member of the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame. "It would take me five or six days to recognize a [new] horse I had."
Almost everything Mr. MEYER needed to know was inside his head. His mind was like an efficient computer, with some lively quirks, that was occasionally supplemented by a plastic shopping bag he toted everywhere. The bag was full of everything that wasn't contained in his brain yet still mattered: racing forms and programs, a notebook or two, this and that.
Jerry MEYER grew up in southwestern Ontario and, although most of his Friends and relatives don't know it, he was a ski champion at the Chicopee Ski Club near Kitchener, Ontario. "He must have done that before he was 14," Mr. CAVALARIS said. "I don't know how he would have fit it in." When he was in his teens, young Jerry used to hang around a stable on the outskirts of Kitchener and the racing-crazy Chris family "took him in like he was a little orphan guy," although he came from a fine, honest family of his own, said Helen CHRIS, mother of Woodbine racetrack veterinarian John CHRIS. "He was a handyman around the barn," she recalled. "He lived there practically. He was a wonderful exercise boy and he wanted to be a rider, but he got too big."
He won only one race as a jockey, with a horse called Hay Tip at Dufferin Park in Toronto, then became a trainer at age 20 in 1949. His accomplishments were legion. He was leading trainer in Canada in 1964, 1966, and 1969. The 152 winners that he saddled in 1969 placed him fourth among trainers in North America.
Over a span of five decades, Mr. MEYER won more than 2,500 races, more than 100 stakes races, and his horses won more than $19-million in purses. He was one of the first trainers to have a stable as large as 50 or 60 horses, all farmed out at two or three track locations all over North America, much like D. Wayne Lukas or Bobby Frankel today. It was not uncommon for Mr. MEYER to train a stable at Aqueduct in New York, jump in his jalopy, train a few more at The Meadowlands in New Jersey, and then head off to Philadelphia Park to saddle a few for the races. At times, he'd have horses running at different tracks on the same afternoon. "I used to call him the Iron Man," said John CARDELLA, a long-time trainer at Toronto's Woodbine track. Now he calls him an icon.
Mr. MEYER trained Classic Go Go to finish fourth in the 1981 Kentucky Derby, but he failed to win the Queen's Plate, although he had lively candidates like Good Old Mort, the 1977 champion filly Northernette, Pine Point, Gentleman Conn and Brilliant Sandy. He also trained top U.S. colt Verbatim.
He was inducted into the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame in 1999. Statistics are one thing. But they don't tell the complete story of the man. J.C. MEYER had an unusual sense of humour. He'd stir the pot at every opportunity. He'd latch onto a word or a phrase, and use it in every sentence for a week or a month. His New York trainer Mike Miceli said whenever anybody would ask him how to use a medication, Mr. MEYER would reply: "Use it as indicated." The phrase became such a Mr. MEYER trademark that one of his Friends named a horse after him: As Indicated.
With outfits spread out all around the eastern states and provinces, Mr. MEYER tried to cut his mounting phone bills by making person-to-person calls to his employees, telling the operator that it was "J.C. MEYER calling for Atadandy (the name of one of his racehorses)" or for the weather bureau.
"Atadandy won by four," the employee would say, then decline the call. The puzzled operator might also hear that the weather was rainy and the race taken off the turf before the line went dead.
Mr. MEYER was like a father to his employees and the relationships were never mundane. He'd conduct lessons with his rookies every day after training. He'd pull every horse out of the stall and point out their foibles and problems to them.
"I'd always have my fingers crossed that he would ask me to take the lead shank," said Michael ROGERS, who Mr. MEYER hired at 14 as a hotwalker, shortly after the boy's father died.
One day he did ask Mr. ROGERS to grab a lead shank, and told him about an ailment the horse had. He then told him to show it to assistant trainer Chuck Penny. As soon as he did, Mr. MEYER leaned out of his office door, and with tongue in cheek, scolded Mr. Penny: "You need Rogers to show you these problems?" Mr. ROGERS now works as a financial officer for Frank Stronach.
Just as Mr. MEYER's stable was rising to power in the late 1950s, he hired on Joe BAKOS, a Hungarian jockey who escaped the 1956 Hungarian Revolution. Mr. BAKOS arrived in Canada with no money and no idea how to speak English. Nobody would hire him until Mr. MEYER took him on. Mr. BAKOS became his right-hand man for many years and called him Daddy Jerry.
"He was a tough man to work for," Mr. BAKOS said. "He was straight, but you had to do it right."
Mr. MEYER bought Mr. BAKOS a 1961 Ford Falcon, but he hadn't driven it more than 20 miles when he was in an accident and the car was totalled. He spent the next several years paying Mr. MEYER back. Finally, Mr. BAKOS decided to get another car. Mr. MEYER warned him: "You're going to kill yourself." He bought him a 1964 Falcon anyway and hadn't been driving it for long when "some drunk ran into me." He paid Mr. MEYER off for that car, too, but gave it away and stopped driving for years.
"Jerry was a very kind-hearted person," Mr. BAKOS said.
"I used to get mad at him," said Mr. BAKOS' wife, Vera. "But I couldn't stay mad at him." Jokingly, Mr. MEYER had told Mr. BAKOS he'd pay him $1,000 if he'd ever get around to marrying Vera. "[Joe] was going to swim back to Hungary before he'd marry me," Vera said. When they finally did marry, the money arrived in the form of a cheque.
Ray SABOURIN, now one of the stalwarts of the Woodbine riding colony, showed up at Mr. MEYER's door when he was only 17 years old, looking for a job.
When he said he had ridden horses on a farm up north in Sudbury, he unwittingly hit a nerve. J.C. MEYER loved National Hockey League hockey and quickly rhymed off the names of four hockey players who had come from Sudbury. "You're not going to be a hockey player, are you, son?" he asked.
"He was like a second father to me," Mr. SABOURIN said. "He took me under his wing. He was hard on me, but he was fair. He taught me everything I needed to know from a work standpoint and of how to ride horses."
And he could put things into perspective for the youngster, too. Once, when Mr. SABOURIN and Mr. MEYER were both dining on tuna sandwiches and Cokes at Garden State Park in New Jersey, the trainer spotted the track's wealthy owner and president, Robert Brennan, at a nearby table. He was eating the same dishes they had ordered. "See, Ray?" Mr. MEYER said. "We're doing just as good as Mr. Brennan."
As it happened, fortune ended up shining less brightly on Mr. Brennan, who is now serving nine years in a New Jersey prison for bankruptcy fraud and money laundering.
Mr. MEYER also plucked another employee from Europe when he hired Dessy LUOKANOV, a World Cup show-jumping rider from Bulgaria in 2000. He'd been riding racehorses in Greece before being summoned to Canada. "I never found out how he found me, really," he said.
Although Mr. LUOKANOV had never been to Canada before, Mr. MEYER helped him in finding work, and with his finances. The Tuesday before J.C. MEYER died, Mr. LUOKANOV went to visit him in the hospital. They talked for an hour, with Mr. MEYER close to tears and holding his hand. "Don't forget I brought you to this country," he told him. "I know you're doing okay."
To the end, J.C. MEYER was enthralled by the racing game. Three weeks before he died, he called Mike Miceli and asked him to send him a horse. "I'm equipped to handle a few more," he told him.
Twice in his final 10 days, J.C. MEYER checked himself out of hospital and headed straight for the backstretch to muck out a few stalls.
"He always wanted to die with his boots on," Mr. CAVALARIS said. "He damned near did."
Jerry "J.C." MEYER was born in Kitchener, Ontario, on July 2, 1927. He died of cancer at Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto on July 15, 2005. He was 78. He was buried four days later with his binoculars and the notebook he carried everywhere. The last notebook entry was the phone number of Hugh CHATMAN, one of many kids he had taken under his wing decades ago and who is now assistant trainer for the mighty Sam-Son Farm.

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

WILSON, Dr. W. John, M.D., (F.R.C.P.C)
Passed away peacefully at Uxbridge Cottage Hospital on Saturday, February 5th, 2005. John is sadly missed and proudly remembered by his beloved wife, Marion, his sons, John (Susanne) and Douglas (Susan,) granddaughters, Erin (Rick ANDREWS) and Sarah (Ken MERCER,) his extended family and the many Friends, colleagues and patients whose lives he touched over 91 years. John's earliest years were spent in the Kirkland Lake area where his father, Dr. John P. WILSON, carried on a general practice serving the local mining communities. Later, the family relocated to Richmond Hill where John grew up, together with his sister Olive "Betty" and brothers Fred and Eric. In 1937 John realized his dream of following his father into medicine, graduating from the University of Toronto with a specialty in pediatrics. While at medical school John met Marion ROGERS, who was then nursing at the Hospital for Sick Children. John and Marion were married on July 15th, 1939 and there began a love that simply grew and inspired all those who knew them. John never missed an opportunity to speak lovingly of "my bride", words he could barely express without choking up, they were so deeply felt. After they were married he and Marion moved to Richmond Hill and John joined his father in medical practice. Because his father was already known to the community as "Dr. WILSON," John became known to many colleagues and patients as "Dr. John", a name by which many Friends continued to know him through the years. When World War 2 began, John enlisted (1940) in the Royal Canadian Air Force as a medical officer and served overseas with the 407 "Demon" Squadron, between April, 1944 and November, 1945, attaining the rank of Squadron Leader. John was also mentioned in dispatches. After the war John and Marion, with their two boys, John and Doug, first resided in East York and later, for many years, in Leaside. During these years he joined the staff of the Hospital for Sick Children and established a highly-respected pediatric practice in the north part of Toronto. In 1967 John accepted an appointment as Chief of Pediatrics at the newly-built Scarborough Centenary Hospital. During the following years, until his retirement in 1984, he experienced all the challenges of being at the leading edge of pediatric care in a community-focused hospital. Many innovations, particularly those aimed at supporting parents in the care of their sick children, were developed at Scarborough Centenary Hospital at that time. It was also during this time that John began a long and dedicated commitment to the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital. After retiring, John and Marion divided their time between life at their beloved Quaker Ridge Farm in Uxbridge and their winter home, and many Friends, at Lake Fairways in North Fort Myers, Florida. In recent years John and Marion remained active and enthusiastic members of the Uxbridge community enjoying golf, Friends and community activities. John was always sustained by the things he loved the most - his devoted family, his Friends, his faith, his love of the care of children and his many memories of a life well-lived. His family, Friends and community now celebrate that wonderful life. Visitation will take place at the Low and Low Uxbridge Chapel, 23 Main Street, Uxbridge, Ontario (905 852-3073) on Thursday, February 10th, 7: 00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., and on Friday, February 11th, 2: 00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. The family would like to extend special thanks to Dr. Brian BATTEN and the staff of the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital for their gentle and skilled care, especially during the past two weeks. At John and Marion's request, a memorial service will be held with the family at a later time. Instead of flowers the family would appreciate donations to the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital Foundation or a charity of choice.
