Jackie DUGAN, Boxer 1926-2005
Canadian middleweight champion from 1948 to 1951 never gave up his title to a challenger. He 'was a beautiful boxer... he would dance from side to side and box you to death'
By Randy RAY, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, March 28, 2005, Page S6
Ottawa -- Few Friends and acquaintances were surprised when Jackie DUGAN decided boxing was his true calling. Fewer still were taken aback when the handsome lad from Peterborough, Ontario was crowned Canada's best middleweight fighter.
Mr. DUGAN held the Canadian middleweight boxing title from 1948 to 1951 and was later inducted into the Canadian Boxing Hall of Fame.
"Our dad was a boxer and we always had boxing gloves around the house," recalls DUGAN's younger brother Arnie. "He spent plenty of time sparring with me and Jackie in the backyard... he showed us the basics and the fundamentals, then we'd round up kids from the neighbourhood and practise on them." As teenagers, Jackie and Arnie would often punch each other hard to the stomach "to see if we could take it. We'd place a bet and hit each other... we never hurt each other because we could tense up our stomach muscles real hard," says Arnie, who went on to play senior-level lacrosse and now lives in Uclulet, B.C.
For his part, Jackie DUGAN dabbled in several sports but eventually chose boxing. He launched his fighting career in Peterborough, where he began working out at a local boxing club, before moving to Toronto, where there was more opportunity and better training facilities. In 1941, Mr. DUGAN, whose given name was John Edwin, joined the Canadian Armed Forces and, after serving with the Tank Corps, was sent overseas as infantry reinforcement for the Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Highlanders. While serving in Europe, he was the Canadian Armed Forces middleweight champ in "His prowess as a boxer soon got around and he was on his way to defeating everyone in his class until he reached the top rung in the Canadian Army Overseas," reported a February 15, 1946 story in the in-house newspaper at Canadian General Electric in Peterborough, where Eddie DUGAN worked as a monotype operator. After the war, he turned pro and soon was nicknamed "Irish Jackie DUGAN." He won the Canadian middleweight title on March 11, 1947 at Port Arthur, Ontario (now Thunder Bay) and never lost a title match.
He fought 105 amateur bouts, losing only 10, and as a professional, lost only two of 46 pro fights, says Don WASSON, a spokesperson for the Peterborough and District Sports Hall of Fame.
"He was a beautiful boxer... he reminded me of Muhammad Ali, the way he would dance from side to side and box you to death," says Maxie MAYES of Toronto, who fought in the featherweight category from 1948 to 1955. "He had a great left hand, great movement and solid boxing knowledge."
As a pro, Jackie usually earned between $50 and $75 per fight. His biggest payday, according to The Examiner, was $500 in 1949 when he was on the undercard of the Tony Zale-Marcel Cerden championship fight in New Jersey. The fight was staged in Roosevelt Field, a large football stadium across the Hudson River from New York City.
In later years, Jackie DUGAN regularly sparred with rock legend Ronnie HAWKINS, a resident of the Peterborough area. "I sparred with him for 10 years," Mr. HAWKINS told the Peterborough Examiner. "You couldn't hit him with a box of rice."
When his boxing career ended in the early 1950s, Mr. DUGAN became involved in several pursuits. He was a bouncer at a Toronto club, he became director of the St. Alban's Boys Club in Toronto, he drove a bus in Toronto and, in his later years, he purchased a small acreage in Apsley, Ontario where he and a friend ran a day-care centre.
"He had a great personality, he was very outgoing and had a good gift for the gab," remembers Arnie DUGAN. "At summer camp, he would often take the boys up to Northern Ontario. He was a giving person, and the kids always looked up to him."
Jackie DUGAN was born on April 28, 1926, in Peterborough, Ontario He died of a heart attack and stroke on January 31, 2005, in Peterborough. He was 78. He is survived by his daughter Patty and by brothers Arnie and Paul and sisters Marion and Dale.

WASYLYK, Kenneth Donald
With deep sadness, we announce the sudden passing of Kenneth Donald WASYLYK on March 16th, 2005 at The Credit Valley Hospital in Mississauga, Ontario. He was 66 years old and died of heart complications related to his diabetic condition. Ken touched the lives of so many people with his sense of humour, friendly personality and fun loving easy going attitude. He was born on October 1, 1938 in Winnipeg, the son of Steve and Mary and was raised on a farm in Narol, Manitoba with his brother Clifford, sister Gerry and his beloved cousins and uncles. As a teenager, Ken went to work for his Uncle Harry WASYLYK, a renowned pioneer in the polyethylene packaging industry and began his legacy in the business world. In the summer of 1958, Ken WASYLYK met Helen BOTAN on a blind date. The two were married shortly after and had their son, Darren. Six years later, the family moved to Ontario and had their daughter, Kendra. Ken was a born entrepreneur with a passion for business and a hard work ethic. In 1969 he founded Custom Converters Printers Ltd. with two family members who would become his business partners. It was the first of several Canadian based flexible packaging operations that he would help develop in his career. Kenny will be dearly missed by his wife and children, grand_son Tyler and adoring son and daughter-in-law, Tony and Lori. His memory and spirit will live forever in our hearts. Family and Friends are invited to join us to share in a celebration of Ken's life with visitation at Turner and Porter "Peel" Chapel, 2180 Hurontario Street, Mississauga (Hwy 10, north of Queen Elizabeth Way), on Sunday from 2-4 p.m. and 6-9 p.m. Funeral Service will be held in the chapel on Monday at 1: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, buy a friend a coffee and make a donation to The Canadian Diabetes Association or The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

WASYLYK, George, P.Eng.
On December 12, 2005, in his 59th year, after a courageous battle with cancer. Left to mourn his passing is Joan, his wife and life partner of 34 years and their two sons, Adam and Steve his brother Joe, his niece Carrie and nephew Michael from Edmonton his sister Jenny in Vancouver and her daughter Monique in California. He will also be sadly missed by his many Friends and associates from his long career. George was one of those rare people who knew from a young age what career he wanted. In 1969 he realized his ambition and graduated from the University of Alberta as an Electrical Engineer. He was recruited from there by Nortel and moved to Ontario. George went on to have a long and successful career with Nortel and retired early. George always loved a project, so it wasn't long before he returned to his profession. He worked for two more high-tech companies, Telemetrics and Newstep Networks, giving them the benefit of his many years of experience and impressive organizational skills. At George's wishes, cremation has already occurred and a service will be held at Lee Funeral Home, 258 Queen St. S., Streetsville at 3 p.m. on December 15. There will be no visitation. If his Friends wish to make a remembrance in his name, the family asks that a donation be given to The Canadian Cancer Society or Credit Valley Hospital Cancer Centre.

MORRIS, Bessie Robertson (formerly SHEARER, née ROBERTSON)
Died peacefully February 10, 2005, in Calgary. Predeceased by her parents, Alfred (Robbie) ROBERTSON and Magdalena WASZKIEWICZ her first husband, Dan SHEARER (killed in action in World War 2;) and her loving husband of 51 years, James MORRIS. Lovingly remembered by her sons, Peter and Steven and daughters-in-law, Martha and Helen. Proud and devoted grandmother to Joanne and Kadyn. Born April 23, 1917, in Montreal, Bessie grew up in Toronto. At age 16, she founded Robertson's School of Dancing, a ballet school for young girls. Over time, this enterprise included other modes of dance at several studios. There were many memorable recitals at Eaton Auditorium. Robertson's School of Dancing still operates to this day, training young people in the art of dance. As a founder and charter member of the Canadian Dance Teacher's Association, Bessie influenced generations of dance teachers. Bessie's creativity was not limited to dance. In the 1960's, she wrote a radio play for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio as well as a script for "The Juliette Show". She published several poems. At age 87, she proudly published a children's book: "Michael and the Magical Indian". Bessie's sharp intellect and wit attracted people and she was a mentor to many. Sadly missed, but never to be forgotten. Memorial service to be held at a later date. Donations in memory of Bessie can be made to a charity of your choice.
