SCOTT, Roderick " Roy" Alexander, B.A., B.Ed., M.Ed.
(Retired Principal of the Etobicoke Board of Education) Passed away on Tuesday, June 28, 2005 at The McCall Centre, Toronto. Beloved husband of Betty (née BRAY) and loved father of Gordon (Shirley). Grandfather of Heather and Jennifer. Loving brother of Elsie WEISE of Oakville, Annabel (Joseph) FURROW of Los Alamitos, California and John A. (Monica) PATERSON of Mississauga and several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents James and Barbara (née McKENZIE) SCOTT and his sister Florence. Born on May 17, 1918 in Toronto of Scottish immigrant parents, he attended Wilkinson Public School and Riverdale Collegiate. In 1940 he joined the Royal Canadian Air Force and took his pilots training at Fort McLeod, Alberta prior to going overseas. In 1942 he was asked to join the Special Duties Squadron 138 to do low level flying in a Halifax aircraft on moonlit nights over occupied Europe, delivering spies, canisters of food, medicine and arms to the Resistance Fighters. On August 12, 1943, his plane with a crew of seven was shot down in Normandy, France. He and his dispatcher were uninjured and made contact with the Resistance Fighters. Eighty-five days later after being passed from safe house to safe house, walking over the Pyrenees and spending three weeks in a Spanish jail, he returned to Britain. That experience influenced the rest of his life. With a strong sense of gratitude for his survival, he came back home determined to make the most of his life. Following the war, he became a teacher, working for the Lakeshore Board and later for the Etobicoke Board, retiring after 22 years as a principal of an elementary school. Upon retirement, he pursued many interests. He was past master of the Anthony Sayer Lodge Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons No. 640 G.R.C., past principal of Victoria Chapter Royal Arch Masons No. 205 G.R.C., 33rd degree mason of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasons, and a member of the Ancient Arabic Order of Nobles of the Mystic Shrine. He was past president and librarian for his air force group, the Royal Air Force Escaping Society. Belonging to a Speakers' Bureau, to raise funds for the Helpers (Resistance Fighters) of the R.A.F.E.S. he spoke at many schools and clubs across Ontario about his wartime experiences. Writing and editing a newsletter for the R.A.F.E.S. and for the masons was a challenging project for him. Gifted musically, he played the piano or organ for Riverdale Presbyterian Church and the degrees of the Scottish Rite. He enjoyed his many trailers and travelling across the country during summer vacation. He was past president of the Ontario Citation Trailer Club. He loved crossword puzzles, opera on a Saturday afternoon, playing his organ with his earphones on, and driving his big cars. He loved his country Canada and served it well. He loved the city of Toronto where he was born and lived most of his life. He loved his home, a refuge from life's troubles. Most of all he loved his family. We, your family will miss your smile, your laughter, your sharp wit, your eloquence of language, your cheerfulness and most of all your great love for each of us. Friends may call at the Turner & Porter Butler Chapel, 4933 Dundas Street West, Etobicoke (between Islington and Kipling Aves.) from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. on Monday, July 4, 2005.

Big Brothers founder dies
John PENNOCK was a lot of things in life but his legacy is no doubt founding an organization locally that provides young children with a role model
By Michael GENNINGS, Page 1
A former Georgian Triangle man who served his country in a time of war, enjoyed a brief Canadian Football League career and went on to become a passionate teacher and founder of the local chapter of Big Brothers, died last month in Saskatchewan.
John PENNOCK died November 15 in a Saskatoon hospital following injuries he received three weeks earlier when a car making an illegal left turn hit him.
He was 81.
"His death leaves a large hole in the lives of a lot of people," close friend John LIOTTA of Collingwood said Monday. "Everyone I've spoken to has felt a real sense of loss. People loved John and that feeling was reciprocated."
PENNOCK's wife of 58 years, Myrt, in a telephone interview Monday, said the car struck him during an afternoon walk near their apartment in the prairie city. Walking is something she said her husband enjoyed doing regularly.
The Regina native came to the Georgian Triangle in 1968 to become the principal at Stayner Collegiate Institute. By that time, however he'd already had an impressive career.
He spent four years in the Royal Canadian Navy during the Second World War, serving as a seaman on a ship that hunted German submarines in the North Atlantic.
After the war PENNOCK returned to dry land and finished his high school studies in Regina, meeting and marrying his wife in the process. Around the same time he played for just over a year as a guard with the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
"He was a very good athlete. He played sports the whole time growing up. It was something you could do in those days even if you didn't have a lot of money".
PENNOCK left the Canadian Football League to attend McGill University in Montreal where after three years he earned a bachelor of science degree in physical education.
He subsequently went to the University of Manitoba for a year, where he took further education courses.
After he taught for two years in Saskatoon and then rejoined the Navy as a lieutenant-commander. He would again serve his country for seven years. PENNOCK returned to the military because the couple struggled to make ends meet after his university studies, his wife said.
When he left the service it was back to teaching, this time in Stoney Creek, Ontario PENNOCK was a physical education teacher until he came to Stayner Collegiate as principal.
PENNOCK and his wife lived in Wasaga Beach when they were in the Georgian triangle.
LIOTTA, the head of guidance at Stayner Collegiate when PENNOCK was principal, said that his friend always had an open door policy at the high school.
"Every decision he made was based on what is good for the person involved," LIOTTA said, adding "We shared a lot of times together, our wives became Friends and we visited one another."
PENNOCK's wife made similar comments.
"He was totally committed to education, his community and family," Myrt said. "He really liked young people."
His idea to start Big Brothers in the Georgian Triangle came in 1969 following a church convention the couple attended in Pennsylvania. Myrt recalled that while in the United States the Big Brothers program was one of the topics discussed.
"We both came home with the same idea -- that something like this was needed," she said.
PENNOCK got the ball rolling by writing a letter to Big Brothers of Canada. The organization put him in touch with the Orillia chapter, which helped him get Big Brothers of South Georgian Bay off the ground.
The founder didn't limit himself to the administrative work that came with getting Big Brothers operational. A history of the local chapter, compiled by staff, notes that PENNOCK himself helped paint and paper the first office at the old King George School in Collingwood.
He also spoke to area service clubs to drum up funds.
"John's passing is a real loss to our community," Debbie KESHESHIAN, the current executive director of Big Brothers-Big Sisters of the Georgian Triangle, said Friday
PENNOCK left Stayner Collegiate after seven years to work as a superintendent with the Simcoe County Board of Education and finally retired in 1983.
Still, his wife said, they didn't really put their feet up. After retiring the couple went to Japan for a year where he taught English.
Once home PENNOCK continued helping the community volunteering with the Easter Seal Society and the Red Cross, Myrt said.
The couple also "traveled all over the world", she added.
Her husband's other interests included collecting stamps and jazz music.
Almost six years ago they decided it was time to be closer to family Myrt explained they moved to Saskatoon, where their son Dan lives. Another son, Michael, lives in Victoria, British Columbia, and a daughter, Jorja WEISS, is in Guelph.
Moving to Saskatoon wasn't a hard choice, his wife said.
"John was always a prairie boy at heart," she said.
As such PENNOCK was cremated and his ashes spread on the prairies. Along with his wife and three children, PENNOCK is survived by five grand_sons.

Family, Friends mourn popular student
'Loving and kind' Etobicoke boy dies in collision with garbage truck
By Anthony REINHART, Friday, May 27, 2005, Page A13
Of all the students at St. Ambrose Catholic School in Etobicoke, Ben PASKUS probably had a better grasp than most of the role of a grief counsellor.
For the past few months, the 11-year-old had been one himself, helping a Grade 6 classmate cope with the death of his father.
When they arrived at school yesterday morning, those same classmates learned they would no longer have Ben to lean on. He had been killed the evening before, under the wheels of a garbage truck, as he pedalled his bike toward home.
"And it's such a beautiful day," Lynn TOMASEK said through tears, standing outside the school in the sun on what was surely the darkest day of her four years as principal.
Police said the boy was cycling eastbound on the north sidewalk of Horner Avenue at about 6: 40 p.m. on Wednesday. As he crossed Sheldon Avenue, he rode into the path of a City of Toronto garbage truck that had been westbound on Horner and was turning right onto Sheldon.
Ben, who would have turned 12 on Monday, was pronounced dead a short time later at St. Joseph's hospital. The traumatized driver of the garbage truck was also taken to hospital. No charges had been laid as of yesterday.
Louise LEMIEUX, the boy's mother, issued a brief statement through the Ridley Funeral Home late yesterday, thanking her neighbours, her son's school and the emergency workers who tried to help him.
"It comforts me to know that the police, the firemen, the Emergency Medical Services and the staff at St. Joseph's Health Centre did everything they possibly could," said Ms. LEMIEUX, a single mother with two younger boys at home.
"When praying for my family, I ask that you include the other victim of the accident, the driver of the truck, who will also be in my prayers."
Ms. TOMASEK, the school principal, had been scheduled to attend a conference yesterday, and was at home getting ready that morning when her telephone rang. It was the school's secretary, saying she had heard a news report of a boy who had been struck and killed in the same general area as the school -- the Alderwood neighbourhood, south of Evans Avenue and east of Browns Line.
Afraid the boy might be a St. Ambrose student, the principal called police, who confirmed her fears.
"He was a gorgeous kid, so handsome," said Ms. TOMASEK, who cancelled her trip to the conference and had her husband drive her straight to the school.
"His face just kept coming up in front of me when we were driving," she said. When she arrived at the school, Ms. TOMASEK and her vice-principal, Jo CORSI, faced the delicate task of maintaining daily routines for the 400 junior kindergarten-to-Grade 8 students, while acknowledging the loss of a student his teacher called "a treasure."
"There is no formula," Ms. TOMASEK said. "We've never done this before."
Professional grief counsellors were available to help any students or parents struggling with the news. The school's guidance counsellors were also on hand.
Ms. TOMASEK read a brief dedication over the P.A. system after O Canada was played. Then, students who knew Ben were given time in class to share their memories of him and describe him, she said.
They used terms like "athletic," "loving and kind" and "energetic" to describe a boy who was known to offer help when needed, and to stand up for his Friends when he thought they needed defending.
"He was a little bit of a mischief maker when he was young," Ms. TOMASEK said, adding that Ben was once a regular visitor to her office for minor infractions, but had since become a leader among students.
"There are some kids in the school who you know better than others," she said, as some of the school's youngest students were finishing the remainder of their lunch break running around a nearby spruce tree. "He was definitely one of them."
As the noise died down and the kids filed back to class, Ms. TOMASEK struggled aloud with her own shock over the boy's sudden death.
"It just takes a split second, doesn't it?" she said, before she and Ms. CORSI headed back inside to the rest of their day.
A short distance away, at the scene of Wednesday's accident, fresh flowers and a teddy bear had been taped to a tree trunk. Three blocks east of that, a similar memorial still stands more than three years after another neighbourhood boy was killed.
Justin BOUDREAU- WEISS, 12, died while trying to cross Horner Avenue on November 30, 2001, prompting calls for the city to install a traffic signal along the busy stretch, which abuts an industrial area.
A bouquet of artificial flowers and a laminated poster commemorating his death are tied to the new traffic signal.

McLEOD, Prof. James Gary (1947-2005)
Affectionately known as "Jay" to his family, colleagues and Friends Professor James G. McLEOD, husband, father, grandfather, law professor, author, lecturer and raconteur died suddenly at his home on Tuesday, October 4th, 2005 at age 57.
Jay will be profoundly missed by his wife, Margaret McSORLEY his children James and Masako McLEOD, Kathleen and Michael KONOPKA, Michael McLEOD, Erin and Trevor TRAINOR and Ian WEISS; his grandchildren Neil, Kaede, Dailey and Alicia; his mother Pauline McLEOD; his siblings Randy and Cyndy McLEOD, Jacqueline and Joe ZORZI and Scott and Laurie McLEOD.
Jay was predeceased by his father Jack and brother Donald.
Professor McLEOD graduated with his LLB from the University of Western Ontario in 1971 and an LLM from the University of London, England in 1972. He was called to the Bar in 1974 and taught a variety of courses at the U.W.O.'s Law School and the Ivey School of Business. He presently holds the position of associate dean (administration). Jay's lectures were legendary amongst students, lawyers and judges for their insight, clarity and humor. A leading expert in Canadian Family Law, Jay is the author and/or editor of the leading family law publications in Canada, he has also acted as consultant to the Canadian Bar Association as well as the provincial and federal governments on family law issues. His works have been cited with approval by every Court in the country including many times by the Supreme Court of Canada. When it came to family law, Jay was the conscience of the country by not shying away from challenging Court decisions when they did not meet his high standards for logic and consistency. He was a giant in the legal profession and the country is a great deal poorer as a result of his passing. Jay almost single handedly made the practice of family law in Ontario respectable. His contribution to the development of family law in Canada was surpassed only by the esteem in which he was held by his colleagues and judiciary and the reverence of his students. In life Jay made us laugh. In death we mourn his memory.
Friends are invited to share their memories of Jay with his family at the Edward R. Good Funeral Home, 171 King St. S., Waterloo, on Thursday from 7-9 and on Friday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. The funeral service to celebrate Jay's life will be held at Saint John's Lutheran Church, 22 Willow Street, Waterloo on Saturday, October 8, 2005 at 11 a.m. Cremation will take place. A reception will follow the service in the fellowship hall of the church.
In memory of Jay, and in lieu of flowers, donations to Foundation Western (J.G. Mcleod Memorial Fund) c/o Foundation Western, Alumni Hall, Rm 11, University of Western Ontario N6A 5B9 would be appreciated and can be arranged through the funeral home.

Paul ROAZEN, Scholar And Writer: (1936-2005)
York University professor chronicled the development of psychoanalysis and explored Sigmund Freud's complex relationships with Friends, family and followers
By Stephen STRAUSS, Special to The Globe and Mail, Thursday, December 8, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- Of the many accomplishments that could be attributed to York University professor Paul ROAZEN, perhaps the most lasting may be that he created a field of study that had never existed meta-psychotherapy.
Over the course of a long and extraordinarily productive career, the teacher of social and political science deconstructed the many different relationships that existed within the world of psychotherapy, particularly those that wove in and around its iconic founder, Sigmund Freud.
"He was not involved in psychotherapy itself, but he was involved in the analysis of psychoanalysis," says Cyril GREENLAND, a former professor of social work at McMaster University and a friend of Dr. ROAZEN.
The bedrock of his work were lengthy interviews that Dr. ROAZEN conducted in the early 1960s with 70 of Freud's patients and colleagues -- interviews that uncovered quirks and diversions in the techniques that eventually turned into psychoanalytic orthodoxy. Among the striking findings was the revelation that the classic position of a psychoanalyst and his patient -- patient verbalizing on couch, doctor sitting behind him silently taking notes -- wasn't how the process originally began.
Freud was initially quite chatty and spoke directly to his patients until surgery for mouth-and-throat cancer made him so self-conscious about his appearance that he preferred to interview without being seen.
Dr. ROAZEN also revealed that Freud had broken what might be thought of as the sacrosanct boundary between patient and parent by psychoanalyzing his daughter Anna. His deconstruction of Freud and his methods infuriated the psychoanalytic community in general and Anna FREUD in particular. So much so that she subsequently wrote in a letter: "Everything Paul ROAZEN writes is a menace." But illustrative of how much Dr. ROAZEN saw his duty to speak the truth as he saw it, the remark was something he quoted proudly.
Another classic among his other 22 books was Brother Animal, in which Dr. ROAZEN (pronounced Roe-zuhn) unravelled the relationship between Freud and Viktor TAUSK -- a student who became a brilliant but troubled colleague, was the lover of one early woman psychiatrist and the patient of another, and eventually committed suicide. A reviewer in The New York Times called the book "an altogether compelling excursion into psychoanalytic history that develops like an intellectual mystery story."
Following in the path of Freud, who co-wrote a psychoanalytic history of Woodrow Wilson, Dr. ROAZEN published in 1998 a study of Mackenzie KING, Canada's King: An Essay in Political Psychology. In 1916, after King fell into a deep depression, he went to Johns Hopkins University for treatment by a psychiatrist. Using notes and letters in the Johns Hopkins archives, Dr. ROAZEN produced a vivid picture of a man so mentally disturbed he believed other people were influencing him through electrical currents and, conversely, that he could influence them back with currents he generated himself.
In a review of the book, Paul ADAM/ADAMS, a former Globe and Mail Middle East correspondent, wrote that Dr. ROAZEN's "cautious, knowledgeable and sympathetic approach cuts quite a contrast to the half-baked psychologizing we read all the time about everyone from Saddam Hussein to Lucien Bouchard."
Part of what ensured Dr. ROAZEN's even-handedness was his phenomenal memory for detail -- particularly when it came to Freud.
"If you would ask him what Freud did on September 2, 1916, he would ask back, 'In the morning or afternoon?' -- that's how detailed his memory was," recounts Hans MOHR, a friend of 40 years and a former colleague of Dr. ROAZEN's at York.
But, like the subject matter he pursued, it was difficult to encapsulate Dr. ROAZEN in a single frame.
He was born in Massachusetts and attended Harvard University, where he received his doctorate in 1965. He soon joined the faculty and stayed until 1971, when he moved to Toronto's York University as part of a stream of new professors joining a quickly growing institution full of multi-disciplinary energy. "His persona was his work; his life was his work," his son Jules said about his father's central passion.
As a teacher, Dr. ROAZEN was, in equal parts, brilliant, daunting and acidulously dismissive. While open to students on many levels, "Paul often overwhelmed undergraduates with the breadth and diversity of his historical allusions and references, expecting a depth and sophistication... that many graduate students do not yet possess," recalls Daniel BURSTON, a former graduate student of Dr. ROAZEN who now teaches at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh.
As an individual, he also was -- the word is used repeatedly by people who knew him -- irascible. "He could be very bad tempered and very demanding," says Prof. GREENLAND. "On the other hand, he could be very wise and very generous and very helpful. On any given day, it was difficult to predict which Paul ROAZEN you would get."
Author John Robert COLOMBO, who was a friend, recounts attending a presentation by a graduate student to a small group of people where Dr. ROAZEN exploded because "it was not up to the master's level, and, oh, it was appalling. He later followed and phoned everyone and didn't apologize but gave reason for his attack, as though there was no moral culpability there."
Nonetheless, the energy that he put into analyzing psychoanalysis produced works so instructive both to the therapy community and to those wishing to understand the effect of the psychotherapy world view on the intellectual zeitgeist of the 20th century that any personal flaws were overlooked by those who came after.
"I think Paul's greatest contribution to psychotherapy was his willingness to confront legends and, in the process, to reveal truth," said Deirdre Bair, the British author of a much-praised biography of psychotherapist Carl Jung. "He did not hesitate to go where angels fear to tread and, in the process, he trampled... many iconic images.
"His gift to the discipline was to seek out the truth, no matter how unpleasant it might have been for the entrenched 'authorities' to read it," says Ms. Bair, who had been encouraged by Dr. ROAZEN to write the Jung book.
"Whether they know it or not, everyone working in this field today is directly or indirectly in his debt," says Prof. BURSTON.
After taking early retirement from York, Dr. ROAZEN moved to Cambridge, Massachusetts., and continued writing. He was elected a member of the Royal Society of Canada in 1993 and made an honorary member of the American Psychoanalytic Association in 2004.
Paul ROAZEN was born in Boston in 1936. He died of complications from Crohn's disease at his home in Cambridge on November 3. He was 69. He leaves his sons Daniel HELLER- ROAZEN, a professor of comparative literature at Princeton University, and Jules ROAZEN, a banker in New York; a brother, Dr. Bernard ROAZEN, of San Francisco; and a sister, Sheila WEISS, of Westport, Connecticut.
His marriage to Deborah HELLER, now a professor of English at York University, ended in divorce.

Peacefully at the William Osler Health Centre - Etobicoke Campus on Saturday, July 16th, 2005. Valued and beloved friend of Joy and Ernie WEISS and their family (Michael, Christopher, Laurene, Joel, Eden, and Noah) of Guelph, Isabel McKERIHEN of Toronto, and Kathleen and Dennis MILES of Mississauga. Dorothy's music career began in Guelph, where she was born. Her mother, Lily Willson GATIRD, was a gifted pianist who worked in the theatre and formerly taught music in England. Her father, Edward "Teddy" GATIRD, danced in a number of variety shows. Dorothy's love for music and dance was fostered by her parents and her piano teacher, Bessie HILL, who was well known in the Guelph community. Having won many piano competitions as a child, it was inevitable that Dorothy would make music her life's work. Her varied career included playing for classes at the Young Women's Christian Association, for Modern Dance classes at Columbia University's Teachers' College, for the Boris Volkoff Ballet Studio, as well as Boris Volkoff's Canadian Ballet Company, a forerunner of the National Ballet of Canada, for the Banff School of Fine Arts from 1958 until 1994, for Contemporary Dance classes at the University of Toronto. Dorothy accompanied Toronto Board of Education choirs at the Kiwanis Festival, and for more than 60 years she worked at Edith L. Groves School/Heydon Park Secondary School, where she played for physical education and vocal music classes and many school events. Dorothy GATIRD enriched the lives of all who knew her. She had the talent to be a concert pianist, but in keeping with her gentle, retiring nature she chose the accompanist's role. Friends may call at the Turner and Porter Yorke Chapel, 2357 Bloor St. W., at Windermere, east of the Jane Subway on Tuesday from 2: 00-4:00 and 7:00-9:00 p.m. Funeral Service will be held in the Chapel on Wednesday, July 20, 2005 at 2: 00 p.m. If desired, donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Alzheimer Society would be appreciated.
