PHELPS, Robert James
With family members at his side, Bob passed away peacefully on January 26, 2005. Bob faced his final days a he had led his entire life with dignity, grace and elegance. he was a true gentleman. Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, March 27, 1919, he spent his formative years in London, England. During World War 2 he served with the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve as a lieutenant. At the War's end, Bob and his great Friends Denis DAINES and Leonard "Wick" Wickens set out to find fame and fortune in Montreal. On August 9, 1947 he swept down to Westbury, Long Island, the home of his sister Louise, to marry the love of his life Renee GOODING, a very attractive nurse he had courted and fallen in love with in London. The newlyweds set off on their 58 year storybook journey in Montreal, where Bob established a career in the Heavy Construction Equipment industry, and daughter Patricia (Pip) was born. Advancements in Bob's career took the family across Southern Ontario - Chatham were son Clifton and daughter Zoë were born, Oakville and finally London in 1960. Shortly after he retired in 1988, Bob and Renee moved to the West Coast to be closer to their children and grandchild who were now living in Vancouver.
Bob will be remembered for his devotion to family, zest for life and wonderful sense of humor. Holiday gatherings were very special to him. he was a charming host and his creative gift giving and special breakfasts are legendary. And of course his music - he was a jazz aficionado and a splendid dancer. Bob was predeceased by his brother Walter "Wag" PHELPS and will be remembered with great love and affection by his beloved wife Renee, his children Patricia, Clifton (Anita) and Zoë (Wayne), grandchildren Emily, Devon, Mackenzie, Jamie and Graydon, his sister Louise SIMONSON, nieces and nephews and many Friends around the world.

In loving memory of our beautiful mother, Olive, who passed away January 30, 2004.
You can only have one mother,
Patient, kind and true,
No other friend in all the world,
Will be so true to you.
For all her loving kindness,
She asked nothing in return,
If all the world deserted us,
To our mother we could turn.
To those who have a mother,
Treasure her with care,
For you will never know her,
Till she is no longer there.

In loving memory of a dear husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. George C. SIMPSON was called by God one year ago, August 17, 2004.
Remember him with a smile to-day
Instead of bitter tears
Reflect instead on memories
Of all the happy years
Smiles he brought, the way he spoke
And all the things he said
His strength, his courage, the way he lived
Remember that instead.
All the love he gave us
His eyes that shone with laughter
So much of him has never died
But lives on forever after.
Sadly missed by his loving wife Theresa, daughter Patricia and her husband Gary, his son Tom and their families.

WOODRUFF, Doctor Merrill Emerson, O.D., M.A., PhD.
(February 3, 1925-May 8, 2005)
After a long illness, Emerson WOODRUFF of Waterloo, passed away at Chateau Gardens, Elmira on May 8, 2005.
Merrill Emerson WOODRUFF was born in Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada. After completing high school, he served in the Royal Canadian Air Force. He was discharged in 1945 with the rank of Flying Officer, and soon after began his optometric studies at the College of Optometry of Ontario. When Doctor WOODRUFF graduated in 1950, he received the J.C. Thompson Memorial award for highest achievement in theoretical optometry.
Doctor WOODRUFF practiced optometry in West Lorne and Blenheim, Ontario from 1950 to 1962. He was also an active member of the Ontario Association of Optometrists. He served as the local society president and later as vice-president of the Ontario Association of Optometrists. In the early 1960s, Doctor WOODRUFF was a co-author and presenter of the Ontario Association of Optometrists' brief to the Royal Commission on Health Services in Canada.
In 1963, Doctor WOODRUFF began his graduate studies at Indiana University. In the first year of his PhD program in physiological optics, he authored a position paper entitled 'The Effective Utilization of Optometrists within the Programs of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare' for the American Optometric Association. While completing his PhD studies, Doctor WOODRUFF was appointed as a lecturer in optometry at Indiana University. In 1966, he became an Assistant Professor.
In 1967, Doctor WOODRUFF accepted the posts of Associate Professor of Optometry and Director of Clinics at the School of Optometry, University of Waterloo. In 1967, he was co-author of the University's brief to the Ontario Government's Committee on the Healing Arts in Ontario.
As clinic Director, Doctor WOODRUFF became part of a faculty team that introduced several innovative concepts (such as mobile clinics and satellite clinics) to clinical teaching. Some programs focused on geriatric care and particularly on improving refractive care of infants and children. This area was the subject of Doctor WOODRUFF's Doctoral dissertation. Clinics were operated in certain Caribbean Islands, throughout much of northern Ontario, and in New Brunswick and Manitoba. In northern Ontario, the visual problems of several thousand Cree Indian children were attended to in these clinics.
Doctor WOODRUFF taught environmental optics, which relates visual abilities and vocational and avocational activities. He also taught a variety of clinical and theoretical subjects including Geometric Optics, Visual Physiology, Children's Vision Care, Ocular Pathology, Anatomy of the Visual Apartus, and Clinical Pathology. From 1975 to 1981, Doctor WOODRUFF served as Director of the School of Optometry at the University of Waterloo.
Over the years, Doctor WOODRUFF has lectured to numerous societies on a broad range of clinical and theoretical aspects of vision care. He has testified as an expert witness for the Indiana and Wisconsin State Boards and for several Canadian Royal Commissions. He also served as a consultant to the Ministry of health of New Brunswick.
Doctor WOODRUFF has been a member of the Graduate Studies Committee, Faculty of Science, and Graduate Officer for Waterloo's School of Optometry. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry, a member of the American Optometric Association, the Canadian Association of Optometrists, the Ontario Association of Optometrists, Sigma Xi, and the Association for Research in Ophthalmology. Doctor WOODRUFF was appointed to the Waterloo Regional Health Planning Council and later became Chairman of the Waterloo District Health Council.
Doctor WOODRUFF's academic excellence was widely acknowledged. In addition to being the recipient of many academic awards, he received scholarships and research grant awards of over $150,000. He retired from the University of Waterloo in 1990.
He was a deeply loved and loving husband to his wife Doris, his daughters, Elaine CADELL and partner Greg CORNFORTH, Ann SIMPSON and husband David, Susan WOODRUFF and husband Alan ISRAEL. Grandchildren, Katherine BUSSE, Emma and Ned SIMPSON, Emily, Evan and Eric ISRAEL. Great-granddaughter Grace TAILOR/TAYLOR.

I Remember -- Peter JENNINGS
By Peter DESBARATS, Saturday, August 13, 2005, Page S11
Most of the public recollections of Peter JENNINGS have cited his generosity, particularly when it came to other journalists. I experienced an outstanding example of this.
It was near the end of the 1980s. I had been the journalism dean at the University of Western Ontario since 1981. A large part of this job, and similar positions in academia, was raising money. Someone came up with a brilliant idea -- we would gather together a dozen of the top Canadian journalists from home and abroad for a public celebration of their talent. It would be truly a "Gathering of the Giants."
From the outset it was evident that we would need the support of the "giant of giants," Peter JENNINGS. Clearly, he had achieved that status among Canadian journalists working in Canada, in the United States and elsewhere. He was in a class by himself.
So I flew to New York to have lunch with him. This had been surprisingly easy to arrange, despite the fact that our paths had not previously crossed. There is a camaraderie among journalists that I had experienced on assignment in many countries and Peter was a prime example of this.
We enjoyed an unpretentious lunch in the ABC network's cafeteria and chatted about mutual Friends before I made my pitch. After a minimum of discussion he agreed to be one of our giants. The rest soon followed: the two other Peters, MANSBRIDGE and GZOWSKI the two Barbaras, FRUM and AMIEL; Morley Safer from 60 Minutes, Lloyd ROBERSTON of CTV, Allan FOTHERINGHAM, Sydney Gruson of The New York Times, Jeffrey SIMPSON of The Globe and Mail, Henry CHAMP of CTV, Robert McNeil of PBS and Richard GWYN of the Toronto Star, for a total of 13.
Months later, after a tremendous amount of work by my committee in Toronto, we were approaching the big night at Toronto's Metro Convention Centre. There had been a few minor bumps along the way, but Peter JENNINGS was still on board. By this time I had learned to appreciate how unusual this was.
Peter gave me to understand that ABC wasn't particularly keen on anything that highlighted his Canadian background and citizenship. I also got the impression that his prominent role in this fundraiser was unusual and probably would not have been undertaken for a journalism school in the United States.
In the final weeks I began to worry about some major news event conflicting with our gathering and taking Peter to some far-flung but newsworthy corner of the world. He couldn't guarantee that this wouldn't happen but simply repeated that he would make every effort to attend.
My nightmare came true when the destruction of the Berlin Wall in November, 1989, unleashed a whole series of European events. I can't remember exactly which one conflicted with our gathering, only that it was significant enough to make me almost abandon hope. But Peter arrived on schedule in a private plane from New York, stopping for our event in Toronto before flying immediately that night to some European capital or other.
I watched him on the screen the following night in amazement, not so much for his profound professionalism but for his amazing Friendship and generosity.
But there's more. After our Oscar-type celebration of the 13 giants on the convention centre's main stage -- complete with video highlights of their careers and mini-interviews by 13 awestruck journalism students -- and after a lavish buffet supper ("food from the news capitals of the world"), the entertainment consisted of a mock newscast anchored by Peter JENNINGS, Lloyd ROBERTSON and Peter MANSBRIDGE. The rest of the 13 were in a nearby studio supposedly reporting from Washington, London, Moscow and other impressive datelines.
Peter gave my script for this tomfoolery his full attention, reading it carefully beforehand, underlining certain parts and rehearsing under his breath. The other two anchors quickly rose to the challenge, providing our audience with a hilarious display of competitive news delivery as they worked shamelessly to milk laughs from their appreciative audience.
The only restriction placed by Peter on this unique performance was that no one in the control room would make an unauthorized pirate tape of it. And as far as I know, no one did, because I'm sure it would have turned up by now.
We raised about $80,000 for the journalism school that night and I always felt that I had never thanked him properly. So thanks, Peter. You stood for everything that was thoughtful, professional and generous about journalism at its best.
Peter DESBARATS, a former Global television anchor, was dean of the graduate journalism program at the University of Western Ontario from 1981 to 1996.

James Wade MacLAREN
By Isobel HEATHCOTE with Jim's sons, Friday, November 18, 2005, Page A20
Water resources engineer, mentor, environmental crusader. Born October 18, 1921, in Toronto. Died June 13 in Sarnia, Ontario, of natural causes, aged 83.
Canada's water resources community lost its conscience when Jim MacLAREN died. Shrewd, short with fools, yet deeply generous to Friends and colleagues, Jim worked for more than 60 years to safeguard Canada's water.
Jim studied engineering at the University of Toronto and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He was eager to join the war effort, but his father, a decorated veteran, persuaded him that the forces needed educated men, too, so he stuck to his studies for a time before at last enlisting in the army. However, a few months later Jim was injured in a motorcycle accident in an officer training exercise at Camp Borden, Ontario Bungled surgeries led to more than 18 months in army hospitals. Jim missed the war entirely, and emerged permanently lame.
In 1946, Jim met Jessie Marie SIMPSON, a Toronto nursing student. In Jim's words, it was the "greatest event of my life." They married two years later.
In 1950, Jim and his father, the distinguished engineer James Ferris MacLAREN, established James F. Maclaren and Associates, an engineering firm specializing in the design of water and wastewater treatment facilities. Jim became president of the company when his father died in 1962, and continued in that role until September, 1980, when the company was bought by Lavalin Inc.
Once Jim left private practice, he had a series of senior advisory roles, including membership on the Inquiry into Federal Water Policy, chairmanship of the Ontario Clean Water Agency, and adviser to the Walkerton Inquiry looking into tainted water in that Ontario community. Jim became one of Canada's most visionary environmental thinkers. Colleagues at the Canadian Environmental Law Association recall the "great debate" Canadian Environmental Law Association hosted at Toronto City Hall in the mid-1980s. Jim faced off against Tom KIERANS, the promoter of the Great Recycling and Northern Development Canal proposal to dam up James Bay, turn saltwater to fresh, and ship it south. Knowing where you stood with Jim involved a few certainties: don't laugh at your own jokes; don't waste water; take your licks as you deserve them; serve your client, your community, your country, your world, and do so honestly.
Jim's work was recognized through many awards, including those from the University of Toronto Engineering Alumni Association (1979), the Engineering Institute of Canada (1984), and an honorary degree from the University of Guelph (1995).
Behind his sometimes forbidding exterior lay a kind and generous heart. A mentor to countless young engineers and scientists -- and not a few cabinet ministers -- Jim had a rare talent for understanding not only the technical issues, but also the complex political, economic, and human factors underlying them.
Close to Jim's heart always was his family: his beloved Jessie, their four sons, Jim, Ian, Andy, and Tom, their daughters-in-law and ten grandchildren. In 1997, he and Jessie moved to Sarnia, Ontario, a summer haunt for him as a boy and home to Andy and his family.
Jim's impact on Canadian water resources management continues through the work of engineers, scientists, and policy-makers across Canada on drinking water protection, water conservation, and full-cost pricing of water and sewerage services.
Isobel is Jim's friend and colleague.

SIMPSON, Norman MacDougall, C.M., Q.C.

Loving father of Sandra, Jim and his wife Mary Ann SIMPSON, Elizabeth, Corey and her husband Terry O'SULLIVAN. Proud grandfather of Lauren and Jennifer SIMPSON and Claire and Maura O'SULLIVAN.
Norm was born in Vancouver and raised in Winnipeg and Toronto. He served in the Royal Canadian Navy in World War 2, rising to the rank of Lt. Commander. He then completed his legal studies at Osgoode Hall and practiced law as a partner in the firm of Blake Cassels and Graydon LLP for many years. Throughout his life, Norm served as a dedicated organizer and volunteer for numerous charities and institutions, including the Canadian Hearing Society, Trinity College at U of T, Rotary (Past President, District Governor and Paul Harris Fellow) and C.A.R.E. Canada. His life was defined by his devotion to Canada and his deep sense of duty towards his community and towards those who were less fortunate. In 2001, he was made a member of the Order of Canada for his volunteer activities.
The family would like to thank the kind staff and residents at the Lord Dufferin Centre in Orangeville and at the Centre for Aging and Veterans Care at Sunnybrook and Women's Health Sciences Centre in Toronto for the Friendship and gentle care they gave to Norm.

Dispute over woman cited in slaying
Man, 21, shot as children played nearby
By Henry STANCU and Betsy POWELL, Staff Reporters
A perceived slight over a woman may be behind the daylight fatal shooting of a 21-year-old man yesterday in a North York park as children played nearby.
"It was about disrespect," said a local resident who believes that scenario led to the man's death at Upwood Park, near Jane St. and Lawrence Ave. W., the latest in a string of fatal shootings this summer.
The resident said the shooter thought the victim had been "messing with his girl" and bragging about it.
The victim was Rommel MOLINA, who grew up and lived nearby in a Lawrence Ave. apartment building with his parents and siblings, Friends said. Police weren't confirming the victim's identity last night.
The victim's brother, believed to be 19, rushed to the scene after learning of the shooting. He fought back tears and leaned against a police vehicle for support before he was escorted away by police.
Friends with the victim when he was shot are co-operating with police, said duty Insp. Tom FITZGERALD of 12 Division.
"My understanding is they were just having a smoke," FITZGERALD said. "A dispute developed and there was a push, shove and a shot."
Police said late last night two men approached the victim and one of them pulled out a gun.
Earlier, a resident, who didn't want to be identified, said the gunman was on a bicycle that he wheeled into the park just after 5 p.m. The resident said the killer rode over to where the victim was standing, pulled a gun from his trousers and fired two shots, striking him once in the chest.
The gunman then calmly turned the bike around and rode "casually" out of the park, leaving the man sprawled on the vacant bocce court, the resident said, adding there were four kids in the park at the time.
Police were hunting for a gunman and a motive for the fatal shooting, the 34th of the year compared to 27 for all of 2004.
Efforts by emergency crews to revive the victim in the park failed and he was pronounced dead from an apparent gunshot wound to the chest.
Emergency Task Force officers and the canine unit searched nearby ravines and a string of parks that line Black Creek.
"Why did it happen to him?" said a shaken Steve SIMPSON, who arrived at the park near Marshlynn Ave. as the news of MOLINA's death spread quickly in the community.
"He was a good guy, and probably was just hanging out getting ready to go to work," he said, adding his friend of one year drove a forklift at a factory.
SIMPSON said he was unaware of MOLINA being embroiled in any kind of trouble.
Fred WALSH, a resident, said his daughter, who wasn't speaking to reporters but was interviewed by police, told him she was in the park with her three children when the shots rang out, sending them fleeing.
