JAMES, Somer Oscar
On January 17, 2005, Somer was released from his long struggle with Parkinson's disease.
He will be missed forever by his wife Jean, daughters Heather and Wendy, sons David and Keith, daughter-in-law Losaline and son-in-law Bernard. He was dearest Pop to his eight grandchildren who were his greatest pride and joy -- Saul and Lewis JAMES, Julie SELEGER (Dona) and Samuel BENOIT, Rachel and Sidney KOSATSKY, Hannah and Jillian JAMES. He is also survived by his sister and brother-in-law Beula and Samuel ECKLER in Toronto and his sister Esther RATINOFF in California.
Somer was born in Toronto on December 24, 1921. In 1940 he went to Montreal and worked as a stevedore until he could join a Merchant Ship as an Ordinary Seaman. During the next five years he served in many theatres of war on twelve different ships of many allied countries as well as on Canadian ships. In 1943, in the harbour of Naples, Italy, under enemy fire, Somer was credited with saving the British ship Empire Lightning from very serious damage. For his courageous action he was awarded the British Empire Medal (civilian) as well as Lloyd's Medal for Bravery. It is extremely rare to receive these two medals for the same action. During World War 2 there were only three Canadians decorated with the Lloyd's Medal for Bravery. In August 1945 Somer made one final peacetime voyage across the Atlantic on a merchant ship in order to marry Jean in London. They had known each other since 1943.
In 2003, Somer's decorations and six campaign medals with other memorabilia were donated to the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa. They will be displayed in the new building of the Museum which is due to be opened in May, 2005.
Jean and Somer lived in Toronto until August 1946 when they drove to Winnipeg for him to work at the Winnipeg Film Exchange. Soon he became a partner in a theatre poster business until, in 1958, he established Regency Coin and Stamp Company. Somer was know internationally as a knowledgeable and reliable coin dealer and an expert in his field. He wrote several books on Canadian coins, stamps and tokens and a book on British Commonwealth coins. He was a life member of the Canadian Numismatic Association.
Somer gave many hours of his time to volunteering, serving on the board of non-profit organizations in Winnipeg notably the Canadian National Institute for the Blind and The Jewish Child & Family Service, DASCH Inc., and The DASCH Foundation (Direct Action in Support of Community Homes). He was a founding member of the Foundation. He was greatly honoured to be the first recipient of the Annual DASCH Recognition Award and to have been made an Honorary Life Member of DASCH Inc.
According to Somer's wishes and belief, cremation has taken place. The family will be "At Home" in the River View Room, 400 Osborne Street, for an informal gathering to celebrate Somer's life on Sunday, January 23rd between 2 and 4: 30 p.m. Flowers gratefully declined.
He Lived With Honour And Is Remembered With Love

David Adley MORRIS
By Samantha SELINGER- MORRIS, Wednesday, April 6, 2005, Page A20
Father, military historian. Born March 1, 1946, in Toronto. Died December 8, 2004, of brain cancer, aged 58.
My father's life was -- like his favourite candies, licorice allsorts -- one of great variety. In career alone, he worked as a draftsman, computer programmer and teacher's assistant. His duties ranged from helping students with severe physical disabilities at Northview Heights Secondary School, to travelling Ontario setting up the Internet, in its early days, for army bases.
The one thread of consistency that ran through his life was his role as a military historian. From the age of 16, he began religiously taking notes on the Canadian militia, that amorphous group of men across the country who, independently of the British army, defended Canada before it had established its own army. No napkin, movie stub or bus transfer was safe from my father's hard, angular scribbles. And no family holiday was free from visits to war memorials, armories or shops (where he would pick up medals for his extensive collection). He regularly visited the government archives in Ottawa and the Royal Military College in Kingston to research the lives of militia men whose efforts had largely been forgotten over time.
A lifelong member of the army reserves, he was awarded the C.D. (Canadian Forces Decoration) for 12 years of army service.
He had an appetite for other things, of course. His ability to eat a huge ball of ice cream in one bite, without diverting his gaze away from the newspaper he always read at the dinner table, was legendary in our family. But, second to loving Sylvia, his wife of 37 years, his brother Leslie, myself and my brother, Stuart, his heart belonged to the military. In 1983, his lifetime of research culminated in the publication of his book, The Canadian Militia, from 1855: an historical summary, a never-before documented evolution of the country's militia from 1855-1983.
I remember stumbling upon my father's book in the McGill University library, while I was a student there, and clutching it to my chest with a fierce surge of pride.
But the truth is, I never understood my father's passion for the subject until I began talking to Friends and family.
Bob GALBRAITH, one of my father's closest Friends and a Canadian army veteran, helped by telling me about the part of my father's extensive medal collection relating specifically to the Mons Retreat.
Marking the first 80 days of the First World War, the campaign saw the British troops slaughtered by a far larger German force in Belgium.
"There were three million Germans compared with 180,000 British," says Bob.
"It was like David and Goliath, and David was half dead, but David won," he says, referring to the eventual British victory.
I finally grasped my father's love of military history: the soldiers had guts. It's one thing to enter battle with the knowledge that your side is likely to win; it's another matter entirely to go in fighting knowing that you'll likely die. My father didn't choose his toughest battle -- his fight for his life -- but he approached it with the same sort of mettle as the men he studied.
For the nine months in which he endured numerous bouts of chemotherapy and radiation, he remained unflinchingly positive. His feisty sense of humour never faltered, and he still took incredible pleasure in his favourite things -- a great tuna sandwich, a trip to the book shop up the road from his home, a walk in the park.
Ever mindful that his life would be tragically cut short, he would tell me that he wondered what sort of legacy he would leave behind. And this is what I told him: On top of spending 31 years with me as a boisterous, loving father, he taught me how to live with courage and dignity. And for that I am eternally grateful.
Samantha is David's daughter.

Reginald 'Red' HORNER, National Hockey League Hockey Player: The bad-boy captain of the prewar Toronto Maple Leafs shared the ice with such legends of defence as 'King' CLANCY and established a record for penalties that stood for 20 years
By James CHRISTIE, Friday, April 29, 2005, Page S7
The night of December 13, 1933, was a landmark night in the history of the National Hockey League. The career of Toronto Maple Leaf Irwin (Ace) BAILEY was ended with a life-threatening head injury suffered when he crashed to the ice following a hard check by Boston Bruins' Eddie SHORE.
What is not always mentioned is the fact that Mr. BAILEY was not the only man carried off the ice at Boston Garden that night. He had an avenger, a flame-haired bad boy named "Red" HORNER, the prototype of hockey's "policeman."
Red HORNER was the oldest Toronto Maple Leaf captain and oldest living member of the Hockey Hall of Fame. Red HORNER embodied Toronto Maple Leaf history. He was on the ice for the very first shift played at Maple Leaf Gardens in 1931 and was involved in ceremonies at the closing of the Gardens on February 13, 1999.
On the dangerous night in Boston Garden, Mr. BAILEY recalled in a 1985 interview with The Globe and Mail's Paul PATTON that "SHORE took my feet from under me. I wasn't facing him and when I fell, my head hit the ice and I went into convulsions.
"SHORE was standing over at the other side of the rink when Red went over and said, 'Put up your hands, I'm going to hit you.' And HORNER did. One punch was all he needed. The boys told me afterwards that they carried SHORE out feet first, just moments after they carried me out, and they needed seven stitches to sew him up."
While Ace BAILEY was still unconscious and recovering from surgery done at Boston City Hospital to relieve pressure on his brain, "My dad went to Boston and he checked into the Copley Plaza hotel because he knew that was where Conn SMYTHE (the Leaf manager) was staying. He had a.45 revolver with him and wanted to know where he could find SHORE. SMYTHE said, 'Let's go up to my room and have a chat.' SMYTHE got two of the hotel policemen to come up, and they must have slipped dad a couple of mickeys. SMYTHE put him on the train back to Toronto and Dad didn't wake up until he was back in Canada. Two weeks later, he got his gun back through the mail."
Fortunately, Red HORNER was all the avenger the Toronto Maple Leafs needed most nights during his 12-year career. Hockey feuds were serious matters and Mr. HORNER was hockey's version of the blunt instrument.
"Red" HORNER was born in a small rural community near Brantford, Ontario He was the son of a farmer. The HORNER family moved first to Ancaster, where he started school, then to Hamilton and eventually to Toronto. He was playing bantam hockey with North Toronto by his early teens, living with his half-brother who was a grocer, and his wife.
He was one of 72 players trying out for Frank SELKE's Marlboro juniors in 1926 and although young Red did not distinguish himself in that first practice, Mr. SELKE felt that he would be as patient as possible with him. The fact that Red was Mr. SELKE's grocery boy didn't hurt his chances.
Leafs founder Conn SMYTHE was a builder and well acquainted with Mr. SELKE, who was business manager of the electrical union. Mr. SELKE's autobiography recounts how Mr. SMYTHE was tiring of his Leafs being manhandled by the likes of the Montreal Maroons but couldn't pry any strong physical talents away from other National Hockey League teams.
Mr. SELKE's suggested solution was for Mr. SMYTHE to unload his vulnerable veterans and fill the lineup with robust kids from the Marlboros. Red HORNER made his National Hockey League debut on Saturday, December 22, 1928. He had already played a Friday night game with the Marlboro juniors and a Saturday afternoon match with a senior team when he was informed he'd be suiting up as a Toronto Maple Leaf that night at Arena Gardens on Mutual Street, the predecessor of Maple Leaf Gardens.
In a 2003 interview with the Internet site legendsofhockey.net, he recalled his debut: "He said, 'I'll tell ya what I'm gonna do. I'll pay you $2,500 for the balance of the season.' I thought about it and it sounded pretty good because I was making $25 a week as a clerk at the Standard Stock Exchange.
"I said, 'Well Mr. SMYTHE, I've only seen two pro games in my life before, I don't know any of your players, I haven't a car but if you'd like to pick me up and take me down tonight, I'll take you and introduce you to my mother and father.'
"He said, 'That's a deal,' and we shook hands on it. No signing or anything, just a handshake."
He was not a graceful skater but could move the puck quickly and possessed a gift for concentration under pressure. He could make a pinpoint pass while two forecheckers were zeroing in on him.
His tough, physical style of play earned him the league leadership in penalty minutes for eight of his 12 National Hockey League seasons. He set a record for penalties that lasted 20 years.
Mr. SMYTHE dispatched Mr. HORNER to a summer camp to work out and to put on weight in the summer of 1931. He was trained by Olympic pole-vaulter Ed ARCHIBALD. By the end of the summer, Mr. HORNER had gone from a soft 180 pounds to a solid 190.
In 1932, he was on a Stanley Cup winner with Toronto. For seven of his seasons, he played alongside another Toronto legend on defence, Francis Michael (King) CLANCY. Mr. HORNER played his entire career with the Maple Leafs and served as team captain from 1938 until his retirement in 1940. In 490 regular season games, he scored 42 goals and added 110 assists for 152 points. But his scoring statistics pale beside the fact he collected 1,264 penalty minutes during that time. He once collected 17 penalty minutes in the first 20-minute period of a game.
The scuffles didn't end when he retired as a player. Mr. HORNER, like Mr. CLANCY, turned to officiating and was an National Hockey League linesman for two seasons. On January 11, 1943, at Maple Leaf Gardens, he was working a game between the Maple Leafs and Detroit Red Wings when Detroit manager Jack ADAM/ADAMS berated him, alleging he had missed an icing call. Later in the game, Mr. HORNER lined up for a faceoff near the Detroit bench and Mr. ADAM/ADAMS reached out and shoved him, claiming he was blocking the view. Mr. HORNER swung around with an elbow that grazed his chin. Mr. ADAM/ADAMS shoved him again. Detroit player Syd ABEL took a swing at Mr. HORNER, who shoved Mr. ADAM/ADAMS hard before referee Bill CHADWICK stepped in.
Mr. HORNER went on to a business career managing North American Coal in Cleveland, Ohio, where he was the majority owner.
George Reginald (Red) HORNER was born in Lynden, Ontario, on May 28, 1909. He died in Toronto on April 27, 2005. He was 95. He was predeceased by his wife.

PASHBY changed the face of the game
Players blinded in 1974 season -- before his efforts to make masks mandatory in minor hockey: 43. By the 1978 season: 0
By Glen COLBOURN and Lois KALCHMAN, Sports Reporters
When Dr. Tom PASHBY began searching for hockey helmets for his sons in 1959, he found only flimsy shells better suited for use as fruit bowls than safety equipment.
PASHBY devoted the next 46 years of his life to making helmets stronger and face protection mandatory in Canada and around the world. In doing so, he quite literally changed the face of hockey.
PASHBY, the game's foremost safety pioneer for the last half-century, died at his Leaside home yesterday surrounded by his family. He was 90.
"Thousands of kids have been saved from serious injuries because of him," said Frank SELKE Jr., a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame selection committee and a long-time friend of PASHBY.
"Unfortunately the masses don't know how much work this man has done and that is the tragedy."
PASHBY's labours haven't gone completely without recognition. He was made a Member of the Order of Canada in 1981 and inducted into Canada's Sports Hall of Fame in 2000, among two dozen national and international awards.
An ophthalmologist, PASHBY launched his crusade to prevent catastrophic injuries in sports after his eldest son Bill suffered a concussion while playing in a Leaside house league game in 1959. Bill smacked his bare head on the ice and was rushed to the Hospital for Sick Children.
"He took what was potentially a very dangerous incident involving me and as a result has saved many other young people from waking up in an ambulance like I did," Bill PASHBY told the Star. "It was scary."
The elder PASHBY already knew about the seriousness of concussions, having suffered one as a high school football player.
"I was out like a light. I don't remember any pain," PASHBY recalled last month. "I do remember going to East General Hospital. I said I was all right, got out of the car, went to walk and fell flat on my face."
After Bill PASHBY's injury, the senior PASHBY forbade his two sons -- Bill, 13, and Bob, 11 -- from playing hockey again without a helmet. It was a hard rule to enforce.
"All I could find were these crazy things made out of cardboard," PASHBY told the Star in 1983. "There was a lot of junk out there."
So PASHBY, a consulting physician with the Maple Leafs, got forward Bert Olmstead to help him import a polycarbonate helmet from Sweden.
"They called Bob 'Caesar' the first time he wore it, but the other parents caught the fever after that game," PASHBY said.
That's believed to be the first time a player wore a helmet in the Toronto Hockey League (now the Greater Toronto Hockey League) and Bob PASHBY's original "white eggshell" headgear has gone to the Hockey Hall of Fame.
But even the early Swedish helmets were unsatisfactory to PASHBY, who began seeking ways of testing and improving them.
"The Canadian Amateur Hockey Association said if I would set a standard they would make (helmet use) mandatory," he recalled this summer. "And so I did."
That was the beginning of a long second career as a hockey safety innovator -- "a hobby that blew up into a big job," PASHBY said when he was inducted into Canada's Sports Hall of Fame.
In 1975, PASHBY was named chair of the Canadian Standards Association committee that approved hockey and box lacrosse equipment, a position he held for two decades. His influence was felt almost immediately. In 1976, the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association ordered that all amateur players wear Canadian Standards Association-certified helmets. In 1979, the National Hockey League made helmets mandatory for incoming players.
PASHBY also pioneered the development of visors and wire facemasks. He took great pride in the number of blindings they prevented.
In the 1974-75 season, before facemasks were mandatory in minor hockey, the number of players who suffered a permanently blinded eye in Canada was 43. By 1978, the number among players using Canadian Standards Association-certified, full-face protection was zero.
"He affected a lot of people," said Murray COSTELLO, who, as president of the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association, worked with PASHBY for three decades.
"You knew he was right in what he said."
PASHBY continued his crusade for safer hockey until his last days. He used Vancouver Canucks' forward Todd Bertuzzi's attack on Colorado's Steve Moore in 2004 to call on the National Hockey League to ban all hits to the head. The International Ice Hockey Federation, U.S.A. Hockey and Hockey Canada had already adopted such a rule -- at PASHBY's behest.
Over the years, he also pushed to ban unsafe moulded goalie masks, introduce neck protection and disallow hitting from behind to reduce spinal injuries. He set up the charitable Dr. Tom Pashby Sports Safety Fund, which has raised approximately $600,000 for research and education and annually confers a $10,000 award for outstanding contributions to preventing catastrophic injuries in sport.
"He has had phenomenal impact on amateur hockey," said Greater Toronto Hockey League president John GARDNER.
That impact is evident in PASHBY's personal collection of hockey safety gear, which shows the development of facemasks and helmets through the decades. Earlier this year, the Hockey Hall of Fame selected 50 items from the collection for the Hall.
PASHBY was born into a family of butchers in east-end Toronto in 1915. He grew up in the Danforth and Pape area and graduated from University of Toronto's medical school in 1940. He married high school sweetheart Helen CHRISTIE in 1941 just 10 days before joining the Royal Canadian Air Force. In the military, he conducted eye tests on would-be pilots, bombardiers and tail-gunners and became interested in ophthalmology.
In 1948, he started his own practice in Leaside, which his son Bob joined and still runs.
Helen died in 2003 of colon cancer. PASHBY is survived by their three children, Bill (Elizabeth), Bob (Penny) and Jane, as well as six granddaughters, one grand_son and a great granddaughter.
The family is planning a private funeral.
