DONNELLY, Captain Wallace McClung "Bud"
Peacefully, in Hamilton, Ontario on 29 November, 2005. Loved husband of Jean (BLACKBURN,) father of Judy (Sam SEE) and Jennifer (Stephen McCANSE,) and grandfather of Riley. Born in Moose Jaw, Bud lived in Winnipeg and Kirkland Lake before settling in Hamilton in 1934. He joined the Canadian Officers' Training Corps while at McMaster University in 1940 and enlisted in the regular Canadian Army in 1942, going overseas as a member of the Royal Canadian Dragoons. A wireless operator, he developed a new method of teaching wireless to the Canadians, later adopted by the British. He served as a wireless instructor at Sandhurst Military College in England before joining the G.H.Q.

He was attached to the Belgian Special Air Service Regiment and operated with them through north-west Europe and was awarded the Croix de Guerre (avec Palme) medal by the Belgian government in 1947. After the war, he rejoined the Royal Canadian Dragoons and became a fully qualified paratrooper at Camp Shilo, Manitoba. He served in various posts in Canada, the United Kingdom, and the U.S.A. until retiring in January 1951. In 1954 he joined the Hamilton Real Estate Board and was a broker and appraiser until his retirement. He was an avid golfer and cottager at Sauble Beach.

Garth TAILOR/TAYLOR, Doctor And Humanitarian (1944-2005)
As president of ORBIS Canada, the ophthalmologist from Cornwall circled the globe in a flying eye hospital to personally treat thousands of Third World patients
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Wednesday, December 14, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- The call to Ontario in 1982 came from Garth TAILOR/TAYLOR's beloved native Jamaica. Did Dr. TAILOR/TAYLOR, an ophthalmologist in Cornwall, Ontario, know of a new flying eye hospital committed to curing blindness and eye diseases in developing countries? He had never heard of such a thing, he replied, but he would look into it.
Two years later, Dr. TAILOR/TAYLOR was president of ORBIS Canada, and a quiet practice in a quiet town was supplemented with a calling: eliminating preventable blindness around the world.
It was all aboard the state-of-the-art ORBIS Flying Eye Hospital, a converted DC-10 with a high-tech mobile surgical suite and lecture theatre that's billed as the world's only airborne eye hospital and training facility.
ORBIS is an international non-profit humanitarian agency that grew from a vision that Houston ophthalmologist David Paton had more than 20 years ago. More than one million people have received direct medical treatment, and some 93,000 health-care professionals have received training through its programs in more than 80 countries.
At the time of his death, Dr. TAILOR/TAYLOR had completed 111 missions with ORBIS, the last to Changsha, China, in September. As the organization's busiest volunteer eye doctor, he treated thousands of patients and trained many more doctors and surgeons in cornea, cataract and refractive procedures, including the treatment of ocular parasites, in more than 40 countries.
"ORBIS doesn't go to get rid of all blindness; it's developmental," Dr. TAILOR/TAYLOR said in 1997. "We teach them to do the surgery, or we teach them to teach others in their country."
The philosophy jibed well with his, a Chinese proverb he was fond of repeating in his Jamaican lilt: "Tell me and I will forget show me and I may remember; involve me and I will understand."
Dr. TAILOR/TAYLOR's maiden mission in 1982 was to his birthplace, Jamaica. "I found my nirvana aboard my first ORBIS flight," he would recount. "By treating avoidable blindness, people don't just get back their sight, they get back their self-esteem."
He also credited the organization with making him a better doctor.
"He was this skinny kid from Montego Bay with a big, easy grin," remembers the current president of ORBIS Canada, Ottawa retina surgeon Brian LEONARD, who interned with Dr. TAILOR/TAYLOR at Ottawa Civic Hospital. "We considered him a legend. No one knew more about global blindness."
Sadly, there's much to know. The World Health Organization estimates there are 45 million blind people on the planet, and 135 million with low vision; 90 per cent of the world's blind live in developing countries, with nine million in India, six million in China, and seven million in Africa; every five seconds, someone in the world goes blind. A child goes blind every minute. A 2003 report warned that global blindness is set to increase over the next 20 years, to 76 million individuals. What fuelled Dr. TAILOR/TAYLOR was the sobering fact that as much as 80 per cent of global blindness is avoidable -- 60 per cent treatable and 20 per cent preventable.
Dr. TAILOR/TAYLOR first landed in Canada at the age of 20, on a scholarship to the East Ontario Institute of Technology in Ottawa to study biochemical technology. "We all had to work on frogs," recalls his wife, Beverley, who met Dr. TAILOR/TAYLOR at the institute in the mid-1960s. "You could tell he had a talent for surgery. His frog was always perfect."
But he quit the program when a spot he had applied for earlier at the University of the West Indies' medical school opened up in Jamaica. He graduated in 1970 and returned to Ottawa, followed by a residency in ophthalmology at Queen's University in Kingston.
In 1976, after becoming the first black ophthalmologist to graduate from Queen's, Dr. TAILOR/TAYLOR planned to return to Jamaica to set up practice, but political turmoil forced him to reconsider. Instead, he hung out a shingle in Cornwall, where he honed his expertise in microscopic eye surgery, cornea transplants and laser eye surgery, became chief of ophthalmology at Cornwall Community Hospital, and taught ophthalmology at Queen's, a 90-minute drive away.
With ORBIS, Dr. TAILOR/TAYLOR spent up to 14 weeks a year volunteering in the Third World, and he recruited other Canadians as volunteer surgeons and staff. As for the plane, it took the 25 crew members doctors, nurses, pilots and technicians -- nine hours to convert it into a hospital each time it landed. "I have done everything except fly the plane," Dr. TAILOR/TAYLOR said a few years ago. "I've cleaned toilets, done surgery and washed the plane."
In Third World countries, the aircraft must provide power (with its own generator), clean water (through a sterilization system) and clean, filtered air. A satellite dish permits communication with anyone in the world. In many countries, security is ensured by soldiers with machine guns who patrol the tarmac around the plane.
As well, 17 cameras, eight microphones and 54 video monitors permit viewing surgery for 50 observers in the plane's theatre (with potentially hundreds more in a remote location) and allow for interaction with the surgeons in the operating room. Surgeries are also recorded, edited and burned onto Digital Video Disks for distribution in the host country's ophthalmic community.
Instead of the studied calm of a normal operating theatre, the atmosphere aboard the plane was "bedlam," said Dr. LEONARD, who accompanied Dr. TAILOR/TAYLOR on 14 missions. "There were engineers, technicians, translators running around, and questions flying. We could feel the jet blasts from other planes taking off. And Garth would push people to their limits." But he never saw Dr. TAILOR/TAYLOR lose his cool.
Well, maybe once. It was in Africa, and a local official refused to board an internal flight until his palm felt a crisp $100 bill. "Garth couldn't stand that," Dr. LEONARD recalled. "He had a little chip on his shoulder, which we loved. But he would never rant about a personal problem."
Dr. TAILOR/TAYLOR loved to play dominoes and consume, as well as bake, rum-soaked fruitcakes (his parents had a bakery in Jamaica). To anyone not used to meeting an eye doctor who was black, he offered a great icebreaker: "Hi, I'm Dr. TAILOR/TAYLOR, in living colour."
The ice didn't always break. Once, in Swaziland, a white man from South Africa balked at having Dr. TAILOR/TAYLOR operate on his son. The man eventually gave in to his pleading son, and the boy's sight was restored. "I welcome the uninformed, the misguided," Dr. TAILOR/TAYLOR told Maclean's magazine, which named him to its honour roll last year. "It gives me the opportunity to set them straight."
This year, he was awarded the Order of Jamaica. In October, he was the keynote speaker at Eyes on Jamaica, a program to support ORBIS Canada's plans to build an eye-care facility at the Bustamante Hospital for Children in Kingston, the country's capital.
Dr. TAILOR/TAYLOR was also a co-founder of Can SEE, the Canadian arm of the aid agency Surgical Eye Expeditions, and he donated a week annually aboard the Canadian National Institute for the Blind's Eye Van, a mobile clinic designed to bring eye care to remote areas of Northern Ontario.
Friends and colleagues recall a man who accepted many kudos with humility. One simple letter from a patient touched him deeply, though, because it so sublimely expressed the impact of Dr. TAILOR/TAYLOR's work: "I write this letter to you because prior to meeting you, I couldn't see to write."
Garth Alfred TAILOR/TAYLOR was born on April 29, 1944, in Montego Bay, Jamaica, and died on November 19, 2005, after emergency surgery at the Ottawa Heart Institute. He was 61. He leaves his wife, Beverley, and children Leanne and Gregory.

Bomber survivor's wish to be buried with crew
By Michelle MacAFEE, Canadian Press
Epe, Netherlands -- For 61 years, Michael CASSIDY wondered why he survived the crash of his Halifax bomber in a Dutch field where five of his fellow crewmates died.
Losing altitude after its nose was sheared off by a Canadian bomber the night of April 24, 1944, the plane's two right engines were hit by German fire, prompting pilot Doug WATTERSON to order his crew to bail out.
CASSIDY, a tail gunner from the Ottawa area, struggled to find his parachute in the dark and wiggled his way out of the slim opening in the turret he could push out with his feet against the air pressure.
The image seered in his memory as he left the plane was of the silhouettes of four of his six crewmates standing motionless in the plane as he jumped -- having assumed they had already escaped.
Moments later he hit the ground and soon saw the wreckage of his downed craft burning a few fields away near the village of Zuilichem.
Those final moments of what was his third flight over German-occupied territory with the 420 Snowy Owl Royal Canadian Air Force Squadron never left him, and now -- six weeks after his death in Toronto of prostate cancer at age 81 -- CASSIDY's wish to be buried with his crew is about to be fulfilled.
His widow, Jana CASSIDY, planned to travel to Zuilichem in southern Holland with her husband's ashes yesterday for a full military burial tomorrow.
"They were his brothers in arms," CASSIDY said in an interview from Toronto as she prepared to leave for Holland with her mother, brother and some of CASSIDY's 10 surviving children.
"You put your life in the hands of the six people with you and they did the same thing because their actions determined whether you lived or died. They depended on each other."
CASSIDY, 28, who spent four years with her husband, said his lost Friends were very much a fixture in his mind and heart.
"We'd be just out walking or something and what he would think, even so many years later, was 'What could we have done to save all our lives,' recalled CASSIDY.
"It was this reconsidering of what they could have done differently, it would still be very real in his mind."
Michael CASSIDY, who had beaten back prostate cancer the first time last year, had until recently been planning on joining the more than 1,300 Canadian veterans who arrived in the Netherlands yesterday to take part in a week of events to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the country's liberation from German occupation.
The group, many of whom are in their mid- to late-80s, are gearing up for an ambitious agenda that includes visits to two large Canadian war cemeteries and a parade expected to draw as many as 350,000 Dutch citizens to the streets of Apeldoorn.
The Netherlands campaign stretched out over nine months and claimed 7,600 lives.
Michael CASSIDY's sister, Pat SEED, said her brother longed to be a pilot, but volunteered to be a tail gunner because he worried the war would be won before he'd get to see action.
"He never seemed to be scared or anything," SEED, 75, said in an interview from Ottawa, recalling the many letters she exchanged with her older brother.
"He was just excited and knew he was fighting for his own loved ones at home."
CASSIDY's plane crash caused some anxious weeks at the family's home in Brittania Bay, now a suburb of Ottawa, as the first telegram listed him as missing before a second followed to report he had been taken prisoner.
Jana CASSIDY, recounting her husband's own story with help from audio tapes he recorded long before his death and from their own conversations, said that following the crash, CASSIDY eluded the Germans for three days by heading south in stocking feet.
He was captured trying to cross a bridge over the River Waal and after several weeks of interrogation on suspicion he was a spy, he was sent to a prison in Holland.
There, he met the only other survivor of the Halifax bomber crash, mid-upper gunner Ray TANNER, who was turned over to the Germans after surviving the crash.
The two remained close Friends until TANNER's death about 15 years ago.

GAIN, Donald Nelson (Journalist /Traveler)
Don passed peacefully in his 92nd year in Victoria, British Columbia where he had lived for more than 40 years. Born September 17, 1913 in St. Catharines, Ontario to Daisy (DEAN) and Charles Nelson GAIN, Don was the second of 4 brothers. Don began his journalism career at age 18 as a high school sports reporter for the St. Catharines Standard and here his skill as a wordsmith was developed as he made a list of all the synonyms for a football on a sheet of paper and ticked them off as he used them. Don attended the University of Toronto and worked variously in Toronto, Timmins and Kirkland Lake before joining two of his brothers in the Royal Canadian Air Force. Here his love of travelling was nurtured during his training at Chatham, New Brunswick, Summerside, Prince Edward Island and Patricia Bay, British Columbia before being stationed as a navigator on Canso submarine patrol aircraft out of Alliford Bay, Queen Charlotte Islands. At Alliford Bay, he continued his interest in newspapers by becoming editor of a daily, mimeographed news sheet handed out to service personnel in the dining hall and publishing a monthly magazine (The Victory) at the station. Don was now hooked on the West Coast and after the war, lived and worked in Oregon and California, writing for a string of labour newspapers owned by a Canadian. But ever eager to travel, he signed on to Norwegian cargo vessels as a steward and travelled to Japan, West Indies, South America, and the U.S. east coast. On those trips, he disciplined himself to write as much as 3000 words a day, selling what articles he could and dreamed of becoming a foreign correspondent. The last thing he did before departing on a ship, was to return his library books. Now in his late 30's, Don wrote from Trinidad to a friend that 'If I live long enough, maybe I will be successful.' After ship-board travel became tiresome, Don continued to work in California, where, among other things, he was a radio drama producer. Finally, Don returned to Canada where he worked for Canada Dry as sales manager in Victoria and here he realized his dream. In 1962, he joined the staff of the Victoria Colonist where he covered all the beats - politics, religion, marine events, armed forces, police and realized another dream by travelling with Canadian Peace Keepers to Cyprus, Norway, Germany, France, and the Arctic. Highlights of those trips included interviewing Archbishop Mikarios and transferring, ship-to-ship on a bosun's chair, with the Navy. After 13 years, Don retired from the paper with cudos from the Saanich District council as 'a fair and honest reporter.' He used to say he had Friends in 'high' places as he wrote both the military news and the church page. He then attended the University of Victoria to learn French and continued travelling by, among other things, immersing himself in the French culture by spending 6 month stints at the university at Aix-en Provence. He continued to freelance and never lost his inquisitiveness, sometimes 'interviewing' you until you had to cry 'Uncle!'. Don never married nor had a family of his own, but he was a true patriarch, always keeping in touch and visiting family in eastern Canada and U.S., usually as stop-overs to overseas. He knew all the family connections and sometimes as a young man, my eyes would glaze over as he once again recited the family tree. But his enthusiasm was infectious and I'm now destined to carry that torch. Don did not belong to service clubs but, non-the-less, served the community through a deep sense of social involvement. In retirement, he tirelessly visited elderly Friends and acquaintances and drove them anywhere necessary to attend their needs until he voluntarily gave up his own license. His list of annual charitable donations was long. Don never made the Fortune 500 list and had by-lines instead of headlines, but by any other measure, he was a success. He survived all 3 of his brothers and is now survived by nephews: Nelson GAIN (Marg), Meaford, Ont,;; Cameron GAIN (Pauline), Welland, Ontario; Scott GAIN, Nelson, British Columbia (Glenda, Victoria, British Columbia); Donald GAIN (Mickey), Aurora, Ont,;; Dean GAIN, California; Diane GOLDWATER, Arizona. Grand nieces/nephews: Kitty ARMSTRONG, Dana GAIN, Jason GAIN, Christy GAIN, Allison GAIN, Donald GAIN, Geordie SEED, Corrie SEED and numerous great-grand nieces/nephews. Don was a long time member of the First Unitarian Church of Victoria (5575 West Saanich Road) where he will be remembered and celebrated by Friends and family on February 5, 2005 at 2pm. Don's ashes will be scattered in the Memorial Garden and a plaque placed in the Memorial Wall. If so inclined, please bring remembrances both written and verbal to share and make donations, in his name, to your favourite charity in lieu of flowers.

Mike CASSIDY, Businessman And Publisher 1923-2005
In 1944, he survived the destruction of his Halifax bomber over wartime Holland, Sandra MARTIN writes. Now, 61 years later, his remains will cross the Atlantic to join his long-dead crewmates in their Dutch graves
Saturday, April 9, 2005, Page S9
He was a small-time entrepreneur, a newspaperman and the devoted father of 10 children, yet it was the two years that Mike CASSIDY spent overseas fighting the Germans that had the greatest influence on his life. He was a tail gunner, a famously endangered species during the air battles of the Second World War, but he survived to become a prisoner of war. For the rest of his life he lamented the deaths of his crew members, going so far as to receive special permission to be buried next to their graves in a small village in Holland.
Bryan Michael CASSIDY was born in Ottawa in 1923, the only son and middle child of Charles and Marjorie CASSIDY. In the Depression, the family moved to Britannia Bay, then a summer cottage area on the Ottawa River and now a suburb of Ottawa. It was an ideal place for a boy to grow up, sailing in summer and skiing in winter. His younger sister, Patricia (Pat) SEED, remembers Bryan, as he was always called at home, asking for fashion advice before he went out and then knocking on her bedroom door to fill her in on all the details after he came home.
His father served overseas with the Canadian army at Ypres and Vimy Ridge during the First World War, and enlisted once again in the Second World War, which may help to explain his son's eagerness to sign up as well. Initially, he was rejected by the air force because he only had high school graduation and not senior matriculation. He applied instead to the army and was going to join the tank corps when the air force relaxed its requirements.
He joined up in February, 1943, was sent to training camp in Mont Joli, Quebec, and shipped overseas seven months later. Mike CASSIDY yearned to be a pilot, but volunteered to be a tail gunner because he feared the war would be over before he joined the fighting if he waited to be called up as a pilot.
He was assigned to the 420 Snowy Owl Royal Canadian Air Force Squadron based in Yorkshire, England. The squadron was equipped with the Handley Page Halifax heavy bomber. Similar in design to the famous Lancaster, the smaller Halifax was the aircraft in which Canadian aircrew flew 70 per cent of their wartime operations. In all, about 4,000 were built, the most powerful being the durable Halifax III night bomber.
After a series of training flights, Mr. CASSIDY started flying over German-occupied territory in April, 1944. On his third mission, his Halifax III completed its run over Karlsrube, Germany, early on the morning of April 25, and was heading home when the nose of the plane was sheared off after colliding with another Canadian bomber.
In vain, pilot Doug WATTERSON tried to steer the damaged bomber back to Britain. German Luftwaffe planes spotted the Halifax and started firing, knocking out two of the plane's engines. Later, Mr. CASSIDY, remembered fearing the worst and thinking, "It's going to be strange to be dead."
The pilot gave the order to bail out as the plane reared and tumbled toward the ground. At first, Mr. CASSIDY had trouble locating his parachute, which had become stuck in the ceiling of the plane, but finally he got it on. He dived out head first. Moments after he pulled the rip cord, the plane exploded and then crashed into the ground near the small Dutch village of Zuilichem. He and Ray TANNER, the upper gunner, survived, but the rest of the crew died, either in the mid-air explosion or from the impact when the plane hit the ground.
Tail gunners had an appalling survival rate because they were obvious and exposed targets in their Plexiglas spheres set into the belly of the bombers. Randall Jarrell wrote a short eloquent poem, The Death of the Ball Turret Gunner, about the horrific fate that awaited so many of them.
From my mother's sleep I fell into the State,
And I hunched in its belly till my wet fur froze.
Six miles from earth, loosed from its dream of life,
I woke to black flak and the nightmare fighters.
When I died they washed me out of the turret with a hose.
Mr. CASSIDY's sister Pat was 16 when the delivery boy peddled up to her parents' house carrying the ominous telegram saying Bryan was missing in action. "We only had a summer Catholic church in Britannia," she said, "and I took the streetcar into Ottawa to go to St. George's Church to pray that he would be all right, and the church was locked."
Both Mr. CASSIDY and Mr. TANNER eluded the Germans for about three days by surviving on chocolate bars and on water from the dikes. They were captured crossing one of the bridges over the River Waal. Mr. CASSIDY refused to give any information other than name, rank and serial number, according to his widow Jana CASSIDY. At first mistaken for spies, the two men were eventually interned in the first of several PoW camps in Germany, Poland and East Prussia before being liberated in 1945 after Germany surrendered.
"It was the biggest day of my life," Mrs. SEED said of waiting at the train station in Ottawa for her brother to disembark after his demobilization. "He made such a fuss that the newspaper people came over and asked if I was his girlfriend."
After the war, Mr. CASSIDY attended Carleton University and began his civilian life as a proof-reader at The Ottawa Citizen. He was an old-style, hard-drinking newspaperman, who had a successful run as a financial reporter for Dun and Bradstreet, before venturing into restaurant franchising and automation in Toronto, including San Francesco Sandwiches, the Longhorn Restaurant and vending machines.
In the 1960s, he operated a business in Montreal called C.F. Industries and Sparkomatic, selling electrode sparkplugs, but the political climate in Quebec worried him, and in the early 1970s he moved back to Toronto, where he launched The Press Journal with a partner. After its collapse, he started the quarterly magazine Press Review, a digest of news, awards and articles about journalism in Canada. He kept it going for more than 25 years, continuing to work as publisher after his diagnosis with prostate cancer last year.
His friend Ken BARRATT, who has known him since the early 1970s, remembers hearing about the hardships Mr. CASSIDY endured as a prisoner of war. With the Russians advancing from the east, the Germans forced the PoWs to walk as much as 60 kilometres a day. A big issue was finding enough food to eat.
Although they were a generation apart in age, the two men got along so well that Mr. CASSIDY sent him a fragment from a piece of his downed airplane, which local resident Peter Stoel had recovered from the bank of the River Waal. The salvaged parts of the plane were given to Mr. CASSIDY when he returned to Holland in 1995 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the end of the war.
He married several times, twice to the same woman. "He kept making mistakes," his sister Pat said. "I was close enough to him to voice my opinion, but it was his life."
He met his last wife, Jana, about seven years ago. They were married about three years ago and she worked with him on Press Review until the end. "She took very good care of him while he was ill," Mrs. SEED said.
Mrs. CASSIDY is planning to fly to Holland the first week of May, with as many of the family as can make it, to bury her husband's ashes in the village of Zuilichem in a tomb next to the graves of the rest of the downed crew. "He always felt that he should have died with them," Mrs. CASSIDY said.
In an interview in The Toronto Sun in 1999, Mr. CASSIDY talked about his trips back to Holland, his guilt at having survived when his crewmates died, and his wish to be buried next to them. "When I first went back, in 1985, I had the feeling this is where I should have been," he told journalist Joe Warmington. "We lived together, ate together and we became closer than our own relatives."
The graves of the five crew who were killed in the crash have been maintained by the villagers. Every year, on May 5, they gather to remember the sacrifices these young Canadians made for their freedom. This time, on the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Holland, Mr. CASSIDY will finally rejoin his flight crew.
Mr. CASSIDY's widow is planning to continue publishing Press Review. The next issue, which is due out some time in June, will be a tribute to her husband.
Michael Bryan CASSIDY was born in Ottawa on August 13, 1923. He died of prostate cancer at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto on March 17, 2005. He was 81. He is survived by his wife, Jana, 10 children from previous marriages, his sister Patricia and many grandchildren.
