GOURLAY, Robert William, Q.C.
Died June 16, 2005. Born April 30, 1948, Rob grew up in Vancouver, attended Point Grey Secondary School, University of British Columbia, and UofT law school then returned to Vancouver to practise law. It was in Toronto that Rob met the love of his life, Kathleen KEATING, whom he would marry in 1976. Together they had two boys, Matthew (1979) and Kevin (1981) with whom Rob shared a love of baseball, politics and Bob Dylan.
Professionally, he worked in the Crown Counsel office from 1975-80 before going into private practice with Peter SPENCER, a close friend since childhood -- a partnership that has lasted ever since. Widely respected in the legal profession, he was President of the Canadian Bar Association, British Columbia Branch (1992-93), a member of the Canadian Bar Association National Executive for two terms in the early 1990s, and an elected Bencher of the Law Society of British Columbia from 1996 to 2004. He is also a former President of the Sir Winston Churchill Society of British Columbia Along with Peter and Daphne SPENCER, in 1990 Rob and Kathleen purchased property near Merritt that they christened Black Pine Ranch, where he could be found on weekends riding horses, mending fences, and stoking the campfire. He also derived great pleasure from swimming at Jericho and Roberts Creek, reading history, and doing the New York Times crossword puzzle.
He was unusually generous and kind. Although he had struggled mightily against depression for many years, and especially in recent weeks, Rob derived great joy from the companionship of so many Friends and family members, especially Kathleen and the boys. The family has been overwhelmed and comforted by the outpouring of love and support from those who enjoyed his Friendship over the years.
He is predeceased by his father, Dr. Robert H. GOURLAY and survived by his mother Elizabeth GOURLAY, sister Mary LEPATOUREL, her husband Doug, and their children Greg and Deborah.
A memorial tribute will be held Friday, June 24th at 5: 30 in the Great Hall of the Law Courts, 800 Smithe St. All are welcome.
Though we miss him more than words can express, we are forever grateful to have been a part of his life.

CURRAN, Patricia Ann
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.

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.
