Beach's 'guardian angel' difficult, beloved
Street person would have lineup waiting to talk
Customers took care of the scrappy Steve Whale
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
For years he was there, outside the Beach ValuMart on Queen St. E., perched on a canvas stool someone had given him, wrapped in multiple layers of donated clothing and hand-knit scarves no matter what the weather, the copies of the Outreach newspaper he was selling carefully encased in plastic, the coins from his sales filling up a battered coffee cup.
"God bless," he'd say if you stopped to say hello, even if you didn't buy a paper.
And though this was the Beach, putatively an epicentre of smug yuppiedom, and even though he was a street person, a recovering alcoholic and binge crack user, Steve WHALE belonged there and was beloved there. There was always somebody talking to him heck, sometimes there was a lineup to talk to him.
"I considered him my brother; we would talk about everything," said Michael SOMERS, an insurance broker. "I'd sit for hours with him, me cross-legged on the sidewalk, like a little kid."
Still, one or two people complained to the grocery store management during the six or seven years WHALE was outside the store most afternoons and early evenings.
"Some people felt Steve was sitting there begging, which he really wasn't," said Elaine ROBERTS, the front-end store manager.
He used to carry home the groceries of an elderly blind woman he was always good for a quarter for the pay phone.
"You don't have to do that," he'd say to bicyclists about to lock their bikes to a post. "I'll watch 'em for you."
And then there were the dogs. He loved them, knew them all by name, and took care of them when their owners ducked into the store.
He was a quirky guy: a diabetic who liked his coffee with 14 packets of sweetener, a big hockey fan who almost swooned the day one of his customers gave him a signed Maple Leaf sweater and two tickets to a game.
He made sure everyone knew he worked a full day, selling the street newspaper at Yonge and Charles Sts. most mornings, often visiting Sanctuary, a drop-in for street people and the homeless, before taking the streetcar almost to the end of the Queen St. line.
And he made sure people were up to date on the declining state of his health; he had throat cancer, though there was never any point in lecturing him about his chain-smoking. He was living in the New Edwin Hotel -- and his Beach Friends learned not to get him going on what he thought about shelters or men's hostels, or the Mike Harris government, for that matter -- but when he was hospitalized four years ago with a serious bout of pneumonia, he lost his chance at government housing.
Back at his post, still coughing, still smoking, he would tell anyone who asked what had happened. He wasn't complaining, but a couple of Beach residents who understood how social services worked lobbied on his behalf and got WHALE a subsidized bachelor apartment in a handsome development almost kitty-corner from where he worked.
WHALE was overjoyed. "I've got my own bathroom and kitchen," he would say. Soon he had so many pots, pans, appliances and furnishings from his Beach Friends, he had to beg people to stop giving him things. He slept on a pile of blankets on the floor, because he wanted to.
Some of his customers used to take him to the movies at the local Fox Cinema. Others made a point of doing the annual Beaches Jazz Festival with him.
About three years ago, WHALE needed radiation treatment. Every day for five weeks, retired educators and Beach neighbours Doug VAN HAMME and Ken LAUDER drove him down to Princess Margaret Hospital where they waited with him, and then drove him back to the Beach again. LAUDER's 92-year-old mother knit WHALE a scarf and toque every year, and LAUDER often delivered WHALE home-cooked meals.
"He was a difficult guy, but every story he told about his life all ended with him acknowledging his fault and his mistakes, which all had to do with drinking and drugs," LAUDER said. "It was never anybody else's fault. How could you not like and respect someone like that?"
WHALE told LAUDER he grew up in the east end of Toronto, the son of a butcher who never made it through Grade 8 because he played hooky from school. He had a lot of jobs: he might have been a postman and he might have once worked at the former Greenwood racetrack. He told LAUDER his favourite job was driving a truck up to northern Ontario. He was a scrapper, the kind of guy who never walked away from a fight, and he got fired a lot.
He told some he was alone in the world; to others, he admitted he had a family. LAUDER discovered WHALE's son and namesake when he once accidentally called the wrong hotel looking for Steve WHALE.
When his cancer returned in 2003, WHALE moved back to the New Edwin. "He said the people there knew him and would take care of him," LAUDER recalled.
He cussed more than one nurse right out of his room, said Jim PAPADACOS, the owner and operator of the New Edwin. But PAPADACOS and his staff were protective of WHALE, as LAUDER and VAN HAMME discovered one day when they tried to visit him. "Three very big, very tough guys blocked us until we convinced them we were his Friends," VAN HAMME said.
WHALE's tongue had thickened and he was having trouble speaking, though he kept coming out to his spot on the sidewalk on some of the coldest and cruellest days this past winter. But in early April, he was rushed from the New Edwin Hotel to Mount Sinai Hospital.
"He refused St. Mike's Hospital -- that was typical Steve," LAUDER said with a laugh.
The last time he and VAN HAMME saw WHALE, he was excited about the impending visit of his long-estranged son. He said he wouldn't speak to him whenever they bumped into each other at the Good Shepherd Refuge.
WHALE died soon afterward. LAUDER doesn't know the exact date because none of WHALE's Friends from the Beach qualify as family and therefore they can't access that information. Nor does anyone know where WHALE is buried, though the city buries unclaimed bodies in unmarked graves in cemeteries throughout the city. No one is even sure how old he was; some think 56, others 64.
On the last day of spring, people gathered outside the ValuMart for a memorial service. The store donated 50 long-stemmed snapdragons to give to the participants, but there weren't nearly enough. The passing streetcars slowed and people stared at the growing circle of families, dogs, cyclists and shoppers around the spot where WHALE always sat.
Amanda JACKSON had tears running down her face remembering the man with whom she traded paperbacks and who helped her cope when a member of her own family was battling drugs. He was the first person she told when she decided to leave her marriage.
"All he said was 'Are you happy?'" she recalled. "He made me think of a little angel in the Beach. A guardian angel."
But it was Greg PAUL from Sanctuary who reconciled this Steve WHALE with the querulous shut-in who gambled on the ponies and could never completely kick his crack habit.
"Steve told me when he moved out to the Beach, he had found a community," he said. "He died knowing he was embraced by this community."

SOMERVILLE gave talents to many
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter
A life remarkably dedicated to public service ended peacefully on Saturday when W.H. (Bill) SOMERVILLE, a former mayor of St. Marys, died in hospital.
The 84-year-old SOMERVILLE -- whose influence stretched from federal politics to the Stratford Festival -- wasn't slowed by his long battle with Parkinson's disease, recalled Jean SOMERVILLE, his wife of six decades.
"He'd come home (saying) 'Let's do this, let's do that,' " the emotional SOMERVILLE, 84, said from her Stratford home. "It was constant motion, even as his Parkinson's got to a severe (point).
"He accomplished more than a lot of people."
In addition to spending two years as Saint Marys mayor, SOMERVILLE was involved in Stratford politics and the Ontario Liberal party's fundraising.
It was in the late 1960s when he ran for the federal Liberals, Jean SOMERVILLE recalled, culminating with a visit to their home by then party leader Pierre Trudeau.
"We had the biggest party you ever saw," she said of the Trudeau visit. "(Bill) had the ability to talk to government and talk to businesspeople and say what they were doing right and what they weren't doing right.
"He was quiet, (but) he got his message out."
The one-time Stratford Festival chairperson also aided a pair of Ontario universities. He served as chancellor of the University of Windsor.
He made a larger impact on Assumption University, a small Catholic school also in Windsor, which named him chancellor for life last year.
He put Assumption in touch with many benefactors, said Reverend Dr. Paul RENNICK, the school's vice-president, academic.
Bill and Jean had two children and four grandchildren.
The funeral is scheduled for tomorrow at 2 p.m. at Saint John's United Church in Stratford.

Peacefully, on July 19, 2005 in Toronto at the age of 66. Beloved daughter of Norma. Predeceased by her father William CURRAN and brother Robert CURRAN. Left to mourn are sister-in-law, Shirley CURRAN, aunts and uncles, Richard SOMERVILLE, Lois SPENCER, Arch CURRAN, Margaret CURRAN, Iola CURRAN, nieces and nephews, Robert CURRAN, William CURRAN, Kathleen CARON, Cameron CURRAN, Susan HAMPSON, Wayne WALKER and Rob WALKER, sixteen great-nieces and nephews, Friends the Dynna twins, and "The Orphans".
Pat began her career with Canadian Automobile Association in 1962 after graduating from Ryerson Polytechnical Institute's Radio and Television Arts Program. During her 33 year career with Canadian Automobile Association, Pat was a well-respected authority on road safety, winter driving techniques, and vehicle safety. Until 1977, Pat did the traffic reports for many of Metro Toronto's top radio stations and was dubbed "The Voice of Canadian Automobile Association" she then went on to give countless radio and television interviews.
Pat served on many safety-related organizations; she was a Member of the Metro Safety Council, The Canadian Association of Road Safety Professionals, a Trustee and Chairperson of the Traffic Safety Committee and Secretary and Vice Chairperson of The Better Roads Coalition.
Pat took the lead and actively campaigned for seat belt legislation and promoted the concept of government approved standards for seat belts in automobiles manufactured in North America. She worked closely with Transport Canada to promote the proper use of Child Restraint Systems. Pat implemented a wide variety of safety programs for drivers and pedestrians.
In 1984, Pat responded to a request for the then Ministry of Correctional Services to "Stop Impaired Probationers in Toronto" and served on The Advisory Council for "People to Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere".
Perhaps one of Pat's most notable contributions to Canadian Automobile Association was her active involvement in the School Safety Patrol Program. From 1969 and until her retirement in 1995, she was the Chief Co-ordinator of the "School Safety Patrol Officers' Training Camp" which is held annually at Camp Samac in Oshawa. Each year, approximately 200 students attend the camp and in her honour, the Patricia A. Curran School Safety Patroller of Year award is presented to one of approximately 21,000 active patrollers within the club territory. Each year, Pat presented the award to the recipient of the patroller of the year award. She will be greatly missed by all Canadian Automobile Association associates who had the honour of knowing her and by the students who enjoyed her presence during the camp.
Thanks to Dr. A. SCHUH and staff at Princess Margaret Hospital. A Celebration of Pat's Life will be held Sunday, August 7, 2005 at The Burlington Golf and Country Club, 422 North Shore Blvd. East, Burlington, from 2-4 p.m. Donations to the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation or a charity of your choice would be greatly appreciated by the family.

William SOMERVILLE, Mover And Shaker 1921-2005
Poor farmer's son rose to the corporate boardroom and maintained a lifelong passion for politics
By Stephen STRAUSS, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, August 15, 2005, Page S11
Every summer when he went to the family cottage for a vacation, William SOMERVILLE would bring the same book to re-read. It was Dale Carnegie's classic self-improvement text: How To Make Friends And Influence People.
In retrospect, the book's central message -- work relentlessly at getting people to do what you want them to do by having them think it is what they want to do -- captures much of the reason for Mr. SOMERVILLE's highly successful forays into business, government and the voluntary sector.
"He understood, when you deal with government, you don't go and ask what you can do for me. You understand that they have problems and they want help in solving their problems," recalled Hal JACKMAN, the Toronto financier for whom he worked for 20 years.
That, an affable manner, a firm handshake and a photographic memory for names helped Mr. SOMERVILLE rise to chairman and Chief Executive Officer of National Trust Co., chairman of the Ontario Pension Fund, and president of the Stratford Festival, among other things.
The work ethic came naturally to a poor farmer's son in Saint Marys, Ontario, whose poverty worsened when at 5, his father died.
The SOMERVILLE family's poverty meant that, unlike his brother, Mr. SOMERVILLE couldn't go on to any higher education after high school, but instead joined his brother's drug store. The two brothers then went into the wholesale drug trade until Mr. SOMERVILLE joined British Mortgage and Trust Co. in Saint Marys in 1965. The main reason seemingly was the challenge of doing something different, as he would joke afterward that it took him 20 years in the trust business to achieve his drug-business salary.
All the while he was indulging in his other favourite activity after work -- politics. Born into a big-L Liberal family, married to the daughter of another Liberal family, Mr. SOMERVILLE had grown up in a small-town Ontario atmosphere in which politics was not only discussed but so intensely scrutinized that everyone's probable vote was dissected after each election.
The political bent meant, first of all, that Mr. SOMERVILLE was elected mayor of Saint Marys in the 1960s. In 1963, a young John TURNER came to town to open a dam and the two hit it off immediately. The result was a 40-year Friendship with a man Mr. SOMERVILLE told his family was the most impressive politician he had ever met. The feeling was reciprocated.
"He had a dedicated work ethic, a fine sense of detail, a personal warmth for those of us he dealt with," is how former prime minister John TURNER summed up Mr. SOMERVILLE.
In 1968, Mr. SOMERVILLE tried to launch himself onto the national political stage by running for Parliament as part of Pierre Trudeau's election steamroller. While Mr. TRUDEAU swept the country, even Trudeaumania could not get Mr. SOMERVILLE elected in Conservative, rural, southwestern Ontario. However, after the election, Mr. TRUDEAU came to the SOMERVILLE house for a get-together and galvanized the neighbourhood.
"It was the biggest jam of people you ever saw," said his wife Jean. A picture of the time shows Mr. SOMERVILLE beside Mr. TRUDEAU beaming a characteristic cherubic smile.
Mr. SOMERVILLE found time to be the chairman of fundraising for both the Liberal Party of Ontario and the Liberal Party of Canada. His behind-the-scenes abilities led to him to be described as one of the most important people in Ontario politics who didn't hold a seat in Parliament.
According to Mrs. SOMERVILLE, while her husband always had high political aspirations for himself -- at his retirement he mused to a local newspaper that he always wanted to be prime minister his growing business interests meant he couldn't pursue full-time politics.
In mid-1965, Atlantic Acceptance Corp. collapsed with $150-million in uncollected debts. British Mortgage and Trust Co. was part of the same company, and Mr. SOMERVILLE feared he would lose his job. However, he wangled a supposed five-minute interview with Walter HARRIS, who had been the federal minister of finance in Louis SSAINTURENT's Liberal government, and who was the head of Victoria and Grey Trust, which had taken over British Mortgage after the debacle.
The two men immediately clicked, both professionally and politically, and after a three-hour interview, Mr. SOMERVILLE was offered the head of British Mortgage's office in Stratford, Ontario
In Stratford, he soon found himself involved in the promotion of the Stratford Festival, an organization of which he became chairman in 1985/86. His participation was more an example of his sense of what a public-spirited person should do than a result of his great love of theatre. "He was not necessarily a Shakespeare person," said his wife, dryly. But he was exactly what a festival that was running a million-dollar yearly deficit needed -- a sound businessman. Within a few years of his taking over, Stratford was turning a profit.
In 1970, Victoria and Grey was taken over by Mr. JACKMAN, who also found Mr. SOMERVILLE to be an astute businessman with a genius at making and keeping Friends. He was particularly impressed with the affinity for the small businessmen and farmers of rural Ontario that Mr. SOMERVILLE maintained while working on Bay Street.
The relationship with Mr. JACKMAN, a well-known supporter of the Conservative Party, underscored something about Mr. SOMERVILLE's Liberalism. He was what you might call a blue Liberal. "Dad liked the Liberals as a Tory party with a social conscience," said his son, John.
Eventually, Mr. SOMERVILLE became head of National Trust, Canada's third-largest trust company, when it merged with Victoria and Grey in the 1980s. Not only did the merger initially mean working 18-hour days and seven-day weeks, but he had to both cut staff and increase the workload. He was so cost-conscious at the time that the story floated about that he had cancelled the office Christmas party. No, no, he later told a journalist. He had given the job of organizing the party to one of his lieutenants who had become miffed with the post-merger politics of the workplace. "The guy... was planning to leave and he walked and did nothing about [the party]," he explained sadly.
For a man who often told his family that work was his hobby, his retirement from National Trust in 1989 was hardly a retirement at all. Two days later he was approached by David Peterson's Liberal government to become chairman of the Ontario Pension Board. He was so successful at this that he was reappointed both by Bob Rae's New Democratic Party government and Mike Harris's Conservative one after that.
He also served as chancellor of Windsor University and was honorary chancellor for life at Assumption University, a small Catholic school in Windsor.
At the end of his life the true-blue Liberal had become a simply blue Conservative. Upset with what he saw as Liberal arrogance in power, in the past few elections he had begun to vote Tory. He was a great admirer of Ontario premier Mike Harris, who he thought ran the government with business smarts, but in an even more right turn, the formerly blue Liberal was lavish in his praise for the federal Conservative Party's bluest of leaders Stephen Harper.
William Henry SOMERVILLE was born in Perth County, Ontario, on April 25, 1921. He died of the effects of Parkinson's disease in Stratford General Hospital on July 23. He was 84. He is survived by wife Jean, son John, daughter Karen and four grandchildren.

During her 33 years career with Canadian Automobile Association, Pat was a well-respected authority on road safety, winter driving techniques, and vehicle safety. Until 1977, Pat did the traffic reports for many of Metro Toronto's top radio stations and was dubbed "The Voice of Canadian Automobile Association" she then went on to give countless radio and television interviews. Pat served on many safety-related organizations: she was a Member of the Metro Safety Council, The Canadian Association of Road Safety Professionals, a Trustee and Chairperson of the Traffic Safety Committee and Secretary and Vice Chairperson of The Better Roads Coalition. Pat took the lead and actively campaigned for seat belt legislation and promoted the concept of government approved standards for seat belts in automobiles manufactured in North America. She worked closely with Transport Canada to promote the proper use of Child Restraint Systems. Pat implemented a wide variety of safety programs for drivers and pedestrians. In 1984, Pat responded to a request from the then Ministry of Correctional Services to "Stop Impaired Probationers in Toronto" and served on The Advisory Council for "People to Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere". Perhaps one of Pat's most notable contributions to Canadian Automobile Association was her active involvement in the School Safety Patrol Program. From 1969 and until her retirement in 1995, she was the Chief Co-ordinator of the "School Safety Patrol Officers' Training Camp" which is held annually at Camp Samac in Oshawa. Each year, approximately 200 students attend the camp and in her honour, the Patricia A. Curran School Safety Patroller of the Year award is presented to one of approximately 21,000 active patrollers within the club territory.
