Don SCOTT, Athlete and Chief Executive Officer (1927-2005)
Argonaut player who competed in the famous 'mud bowl' Grey Cup of 1950 went on to head the country's largest accounting firm
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, December 5, 2005 Page, S11
Toronto -- Don SCOTT's athleticism led him to one of the most famous football games in Canadian history, his brains took him atop the leading accounting firm in Canada and his influence made him instrumental when Ontario moved to no-fault automobile insurance in the early 1990s.
He grew up in Windsor, Ontario in the Depression years, when times were tough for him, his father, a Ford Motor Co. employee, and his bookkeeper mother. He attended Patterson Collegiate Institute where he excelled at football, basketball, and track and field. He was the head boy at the school, a two-time member of the all-city, senior basketball team, and he won the Arthur Currie Memorial Scholarship to attend the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, where he played both football and basketball. In 1949, he graduated with a business degree, began studying for his chartered-accounting exam and found himself playing pro that same year for the Toronto Argonauts. He was an offensive end, packing no more than 160 pounds on a 6-foot-1 frame.
"He was very skinny, the lightest man on the field," his daughter Barb said.
"He was a tall, rangy kid, who worked hard and was very modest. He was well-liked as a teammate, said former teammate Nick VOLPE.
"He wasn't really a star but he was a good outside end, a good catch," said ex-teammate Don DURNO. "He wasn't a hefty man. He was probably more of a basketball player with his size."
Buddy FOWLER, another old Argo mate, recalled Mr. SCOTT as a "wonderful guy and great athlete with a great attitude on life."
Mr. SCOTT played three seasons for the Argos, the second of which was his most memorable because they went all the way to the Grey Cup. Mr. SCOTT, Rod SMYLIE, Marv WHALEY and Jack WEBLEY made up Toronto's potent wide-receiver corps as the Argos rolled along that year. As each November week passed, Mr. SCOTT and his fiancée, Eileen, had to keep postponing their wedding. They had picked November 4 as the date but a winning streak put the nuptials on the backburner.
How good was this Toronto team? At the time, Globe and Mail football writer Hal WALKER described the club as "the greatest Argonaut team of all time." Later that year, sports writers picked them as the top football team of the first half century in Canada.
The Frank Clair-coached Argos started off post-season play by disposing of the Hamilton Tiger Cats 35-19 in the two-game, total-points division championship. The Grey Cup game on November 25 at Toronto's Varsity Stadium became known as the "mud bowl." It was a classic game, but not in the offensive sense. At least a foot of snow had hit Toronto the day before, then melted, and the game became a defensive struggle marred by a muddy morass. Mr. VOLPE kicked two field goals to help Toronto beat the Winnipeg Blue Bombers "The field was a sea of water," Mr. VOLPE said. "Bulldozers tried to clear away the water but [they] made it a muddy mess instead. We were literally playing in mud. Bud Tinsley of the Blue Bombers almost drowned. He was face down in the mud and water and he was gasping for breath. He was saved by a referee."
With the big game over, Mr. SCOTT and Eileen finally made firm plans for their wedding. They were married in London on December Mr. SCOTT played one more season for the Argos in 1951 and then decided to retire because his playing time had diminished. "1951 was the year they started bringing in a lot of Americans and didn't use the Canadians as much," his wife said. "After the mud bowl, Don didn't play much."
By that time, Mr. SCOTT had already found a job with Clarkson Gordon. Now part of Ernst Young, it was then Canada's largest accounting firm. He rose to become chairman and chief executive officer, posts he held for eight years.
"Don had a tremendous intellect," said Jim BUNTON, a former associate at Clarkson Gordon. "He kind of glowed. He had a lot of charisma and was very good with staff and people."
Fending off retirement, Mr. SCOTT listened to a number of offers from various groups and companies, finally heeding the call of the provincial government to become head of the Ontario Insurance Commission just when no-fault automobile insurance was coming into play. But in going from the private sector to the tangled red tape of government Mr. SCOTT experienced endless frustrations.
"It was a very trying time," his daughter said. "It was a completely different scenario. In the private sector, he could get something done quickly but, in the public sector, it's not easy. It's a different mindset."
For all that, he left a distinct impression at the Ontario Insurance Commission, said Bernie WEBBER, a former deputy-commissioner under Mr. SCOTT. "He was skilled in athleticism, he was the head of one of Canada's largest accounting firms and he became a top civil servant. We shared a love of language and a mutual disdain for sloppy USAge, particularly by media reporters and announcers whose stock-in-trade is language and who should, by definition, be more precise. You always knew where you stood with him."
Don SCOTT was born July 30, 1927, in Windsor, Ontario He died of cancer on November 3, 2005, in Toronto. He is survived by his wife Eileen and children Christy, Lauren, Barb and Rob.

MAXWELL, Liz
It is with great sadness that the family of Liz MAXWELL announces her sudden and unexpected death in the early morning hours of July 30th, 2005. Liz was the loving wife of Mike TRUSZ and the mother of Graham, Jamie and Cameron WEBSTER. She was also a long-time teacher at both I.E. Weldon and Fenelon Falls Secondary Schools. Liz's sense of family, humour and zest for life will be missed by all who knew her. Liz was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia on September 29th, 1948. The daughter of Bill MAXWELL, a naval commander in the Canadian Armed Forces and Margaret MAXWELL, a teacher, she spent the first years of her life moving between Ottawa and Halifax. She was an adventuresome, outgoing and athletic child, which led her to Queen's University where she studied Phys. Ed, eventually earning a Master in Education from the University of Toronto. She moved to Fenelon Falls with her first husband Jim WEBSTER and kept busy with local politics and coaching high school sports teams, taking a particular interest in basketball, volleyball and track and field. Despite being very active and health conscious, jogging every day long before it became fashionable, Liz suffered from some serious health afflictions in her middle years. In 1992 she gratefully received a liver transplant, which allowed her an additional thirteen years to nurture her family and marry her husband Mike. Together, with their family, they embarked on a wide range of adventures including participating in the transplant games in Australia where Liz earned a Silver medal. She also sailed the Greek Islands, toured France and Portugal and travelled throughout North America visiting Friends and family from the Yukon to Newfoundland. When she wasn't travelling she was often found on the tennis court or expanding her fledgling writing career. Her love, energy and spirit will be missed by all. Along with her husband and sons, Liz is survived by her stepchildren Dave, Melanie and Josh TRUSZ, her Aunt Flora TABOR, her sister Barb DEAN and her brother Bob MAXWELL, her eight nieces and nephews and one great-niece. Friends and family will be received at the Jardine Funeral Home 'Illman-Platten Chapel', 8 Princes' Street West, Fenelon Falls, on Tuesday August 2nd from 2: 00 until 4: 00 p.m. and 7:00 until 9:00 p.m. A service celebrating her wonderful life will be held the following day, Wednesday August 3rd at 2: 00 p.m. at the Fenelon Falls United Church. As a remembrance, please consider a donation to the University Health Network liver transplant program. On-line condolences and donations can be made at www.jardinefuneralhomes.com.

Mary Anastasia (LAMPHIER) CROWE
By Joe WEBSTER, Tuesday, October 25, 2005, Page A24
Artist, teacher, mother, sister, aunt, friend. Born September 23, 1919, in Burnhamthorpe, Ontario Died May 18 in Toronto of pneumonia, aged 85.
Last week I finally retrieved a painting that Aunt Mary had given me years ago. She gave me many things: the family china and silver, my great-grandmother's needlepoint and sampler, the Lamphier family Bible, ancient portraits of ancestors, and, of course, paintings. Her paintings.
Mary was the consummate artist -- whether in oil or watercolour, depicting flowers or food, Mary's aesthetic appreciation and accomplishment enhanced not only her life, but the lives of those who knew her.
The painting I retrieved -- an oil impression of her sister reclining on a beach in Victoria, British Columbia -- had been out of my possession for several years but now I knew I had to have it back. I located it, drove many miles to get it, brought it in to be framed, picked the most expensive frame in the store, swallowed hard, and ordered the work.
I decided this would be my tribute: an enduring, tangible paean to my beautiful, beloved aunt; one that could be passed on to my children and their children, along with Mary's many other gifts.
But it's not Mary's material gifts that will be missed -- her amazing floral watercolours, her gardens, her parties -- it's her other gifts, the ones you can't hang on a wall or place on a table, the ones that taught us about ourselves and about life, that we will truly miss. Mary was a teacher. She taught us how to live in a beautiful world. She taught us about art, poetry, film, travel. She taught us about flowers, wine, and food -- the very best of all things.
Mary also taught us how to experience these wonderful things. She taught us about joy and love and faith. She taught us how to embrace a moment as though it were the first and the last. She helped us find the beauty, the meaning, the answer. But, along with the aesthetic and sensual wonders of life, Mary also taught us about suffering, about pain and sorrow and, ultimately, about dignity and grace. The great beauty and joy that she demanded belied the immense suffering she endured all her life, from the time when, at the age of 10, she and her family tragically lost their father, to the time she lost her hard-won independence three years ago.
I remember Aunt Mary in my childhood, breezing in from some exotic location bearing interesting and fun gifts, dressed like a movie star. I remember her Siamese cat, Sian Moy, her mysteriously candlelit house with the enclosed front porch crammed with canvases and that smell of linseed and oil paint. I can still see her big, white 1956 Cadillac or her 1966 Plymouth convertible. In 1964, Aunt Mary took me and my siblings to our first film: Mary Poppins, of course.
I remember tales of her legendary parties, where students and adults could mingle in unabashed harmony. Later, I would take my Friends, first to her coach house in Dundas, Ontario, and then to her "atelier" in Greensville, Ontario We'd sit in her garden, drink wine, and talk about art and love. Once you met Aunt Mary, once you experienced her magic, you were changed. Forever.
Mary's spirit moved freely in life -- she was comfortable with dignitaries and teenagers, millionaires and paupers, sinners and saints. I know that her spirit continues to move freely among all of us who loved her. And her memory is safe in the beautiful paintings she left hundreds of us -- from Toronto to Tokyo, from California to Crete. If you own a Mary Anastasia Crowe, if one hangs on your walls, cherish it proudly. It has recently increased in value. It has become immortal.
Joe is Mary's nephew.

A crusader for organ donation
Liz MAXWELL never forgot gift of life she received
Always positive vigorous dynamo forever on the go
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
A few years ago, Liz MAXWELL and her husband, Mike TRUSZ, sat down and made a list of things they wanted to do. Although MAXWELL always referred to it as a work in progress, they came up with 30 items, most of which were pretty adventurous: See the Yukon, the Galapagos, hit the South Pacific, sail the Greek Islands, sail their own boat to the Bahamas.
They did quite a lot on that list -- and many other things that weren't on it -- before MAXWELL died of internal hemorrhaging at Mount Sinai Hospital on July 30, two days after she had laughingly dragged TRUSZ down the main street of Collingwood during that town's annual Elvis festival, one day after becoming suddenly and seriously ill.
She was only 56, a dynamo, a vigorous, athletic, fit woman who jogged, skied, played tennis, and rode her bike 20 or 30 kilometres several times a week on the Trans Canada Trail outside her home. She volunteered with families of victims of violence and her local association for community living, and crusaded for the environment.
What many of her shocked neighbours and Friends in Fenelon Falls had forgotten was that MAXWELL had been living on what amounted to borrowed time since December 22, 1992, when she received a liver transplant.
MAXWELL never did forget.
Every year she wrote to the family who had authorized the donation of their loved one's liver to let them know their gift was being well used.
Two weeks before MAXWELL died, her article about competing in the 1997 World Transplant Games on the Olympic site in Sydney, Australia, appeared in The Globe and Mail, timed to promote the upcoming 2005 Games in London, Ontario
In it she relived her liver failure, the transplant, the long year before she could walk, run and work again. She described standing on the starting line massaging her transplant incision that connected her always with her donor, and how her tears began with the starter's gun.
It is a polished gem of a story, written with skill and heart.
"She couldn't express her gratitude enough," said her youngest son, Cameron WEBSTER, 19. "She would have written a whole book if she could."
And MAXWELL had been working on an anthology of interviews with transplant recipients and donors, one of several writing projects she shared with her writing group. For two years, she drove to Toronto every two weeks to meet with them.
"She wanted to be a good writer; it was so important to her," said Gwenlyn SETTERFIELD. She wrote about living in the country, her prom dresses and travels with her father, a naval commander, but most of all she wrote about her transplant.
"She'd warn us: 'It's another transplant piece,'" Rose ZGODSINSKI recalled. "It was definitely her main message."
In 2002, MAXWELL wrote about attending the funeral of a son's favourite sailing instructor whose family had donated his organs to others: "These gifts contribute to the collective unconscious the certainty that there is in the world, in the purest sense, charity and love."
She was always willing to speak at schools and meetings about the organ donor program.
"She was a big advocate," said Dr. Les LILLY, a surgeon with the transplant program at Toronto General Hospital, where MAXWELL was one of 65 people who received new livers in 1992.
With one of the largest liver transplant programs in Canada, the hospital now performs more than 300 adult transplants a year with increasingly better results. In 1992, only about 70 per cent of recipients were expected to live more than a year. It's now about 90 per cent.
"The only thing holding us back is getting more donors," said LILLY. Canada has one of the worst rates of organ donations in the western world. And Toronto has the lowest rate of any Canadian city. "The fact that one-third of liver transplants use living donors shows you how desperate we're getting."
People like MAXWELL who promote the donor program are crucial to its success, he said.
"We have patients pushing 20 years. We expect indeterminate longevity," said Dr. Greg PAUL, who operated on MAXWELL. " Liver transplants are one of the most successful transplant procedures. Liz MAXWELL would be a testament to that."
She always lived full out. An athlete in high school and at Queen's University, she began her teaching career as a physical education instructor and was aware of nutrition and the benefits of jogging long before either became fashionable, according to TRUSZ, a retired high school principal.
Raised in Ottawa, she moved to Fenelon Falls with her first husband, Jim WEBSTER, 28 years ago.
When she and TRUSZ were starting to become involved, MAXWELL told him that she had a serious liver problem and that there would be no hard feelings should he want to leave. He stayed and they sailed together in the British Virgin Islands two years running and took what TRUSZ calls "a trip of a lifetime" to Newfoundland in 1991.
But early in 1992, her liver failed and she was in a coma for five days. "There were medical people who thought she wouldn't survive," said TRUSZ. She was put on the transplant list, taken off it and put back on when she had a setback that September. On December 21, she was making gingerbread houses with sons Graham, Jamie and Cameron when the phone rang
TRUSZ remembers it vividly. He was frozen on the stairs knowing it was a call from Risa CASHMORE, then the transplant co-ordinator at Toronto General Hospital.
An hour later they were driving to Toronto; 10 hours later, MAXWELL was being wheeled into the operating room. "It was amazing to see her progression after the transplant," said TRUSZ. " She struggled to walk to the washroom, but she set goals. Walk to the mailbox, then walk two blocks and back. She was very disciplined."
A year later she and TRUSZ married, she was back teaching and riding the trail bike TRUSZ had given her for Christmas. The family skied every winter; summers they sailed Georgian Bay in the Resolute, the 27-foot sailboat TRUSZ built. They travelled to Portugal and took the two youngest boys out of school to spend almost three months in Australia, New Zealand and Fiji, when she won a silver medal in the three-mile race at the World Transplant Games.
Back home, she attacked life every day, taking her medication load twice daily but always living well, making sure her life was rich, balanced and complete, but never cutting herself any slack. "She'd always pick up her own tennis balls," Cameron said, recalling the time shortly after her transplant when a nurse was looking after her at home as her middle son, Jamie, began to choke on a sandwich.
"My mom was one month out of the hospital with a transplant, but she was up so fast and had him in the Heimlich manoeuvre. It was her nature. She was always there for us."
When a neighbour and fellow teacher also needed a liver transplant almost a year ago, MAXWELL counselled him on what to expect. "The only thing Liz had difficulty talking with me about were the dark moments," said Rowland BAXENDALE. "It was indicative of how she lived her life. Liz's days didn't have dark moments. She was a very positive person."
He never knew until her funeral that MAXWELL had visited him in intensive care right after his transplant, but he was always aware that she was showing him how to live by her own example.
"She is still teaching me a lot," he said. "I'm constantly reminding myself to deal with matters more enjoyably, to relish every moment as they happen."
MAXWELL lived up to her credo. Two years ago, she wrote each member of her family a note "expressing feelings that aren't often enough expressed," said TRUSZ. " She didn't take her good fortune lightly or for granted."
