I know you're in a good place in Heaven
and some day I'll come play with you
I wish you a big happy birthday and hope
you eat lots of chocolate cake.
We love you with all our hearts, miss you every day and long to see your face

Jack COYNE, Lawyer: 1919-2005
A specialist in international trade and administrative law, he served on a panel that resolved disputes in the Canada-U.S. free-trade agreement, writes Sandra MARTIN. As an Royal Canadian Air Force pilot, he won the Distinguished Flying Cross
By Sandra MARTIN, Saturday, July 2, 2005, Page S9
Rhodes Scholar, decorated veteran and distinguished tax lawyer, Jack COYNE loved the law, history and his family. Although intensely private, his life merged with the public interest because of his own achievements and the controversies that flared around his brother James when he was governor of the Bank of Canada and his daughter Deborah when she was romantically involved with Pierre TRUDEAU.
He was the youngest of three children of James Bowes COYNE, a prominent Winnipeg judge, and Edna Margaret ELLIOT/ELLIOTT. Jack was nine years younger than his brother James, and four years younger than his sister Sally (now GOUIN.) "I was very fortunate," she said this week, "because I grew up with my older brother Jim, and my younger brother Jack grew up with me."
Remembering her brother as a very charming young man who was extremely good looking and intelligent, she said he was always popular because he played the piano. "And you know how it is when you're young and there's a gathering and there's a piano and somebody knows you play and you spend the rest of the time there." Years later, it became a family tradition for Mr. COYNE's five children, all of whom took piano lessons, to give their father recordings of their playing on his birthday.
Although not a natural athlete, he delighted in winter sports, especially hockey, which he learned to play on frozen ponds in Manitoba, and skiing, which he did with his own family every weekend in Ottawa. He was tall, about 6 feet, and slim with a short trunk and long legs and arms -- a bit like a daddy-long-legs. "He had a long stride which he used to full effect, partly because he had been taught to march during the war," says his son John.
An able student, he finished high school at 16, earned an honours degree in history and economics from the University of Manitoba four years later and won a Rhodes Scholarship to Oxford in 1940 as his older brother Jim had done before him in 1932. "It was a little diminishing," said Mrs. GOUIN. "I graduated from university without any great distinction, but I was very proud of my brothers."
Mr. COYNE always played down this achievement. "There weren't a lot of people in Manitoba back then, so your odds of getting one were pretty good." Besides, in 1940, he was much more interested in donning a uniform than an academic gown. He postponed the Rhodes Scholarship and found a job with the Bureau of Statistics (now Statistics Canada) while he figured out how he could get overseas and fight in the war.
In late 1941 (again like his older siblings), he enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force. Both COYNE men became pilots, each graduating at the top of his class, while their sister trained recruits and later worked in an administrative capacity at headquarters. When Jack qualified as a pilot, his sister's boss decided it would be "terrific publicity" if she, wearing her air force uniform, pinned the wings on her little brother.
After Mr. COYNE went overseas in 1942, he was stationed in northern Scotland and flew reconnaissance and bombing missions against German shipping off the coast of Norway. On one of these strikes, his squadron leader's plane was destroyed and his own plane, a Bristol Beaufighter, was hit and turned upside down. "He was able to right the plane and led his fellows back safely to home port," said his older brother Jim. He was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for "skill, courage and resolution."
After the war, he took up his Rhodes Scholarship at Queen's College, where he showed off his skating skills as captain of the university hockey team in the Spengler Cup tournament. He graduated with a first-class bachelor's degree in law in 1947 and was called to the bar at Lincoln's Inn in London. The next year, he qualified to practise in Manitoba and Ontario; he settled in Ottawa, where he became a partner in the firm Herridge, Tolmie, Gray, Coyne & Blair. It later merged with Osler, Hoskin and Harcourt.
Unlike his older brother, who quickly abandoned law for the intricacies of monetary policy at the Bank of Canada (where he served as governor for a tumultuous period when John DIEFENBAKER was prime minister,) Mr. COYNE stuck with the law, but honed his practice to suit his interests in history, business and Canada's place in the world.
He specialized in international trade and administrative law and "very quickly carved out a real niche for himself in the 1960s as the acknowledged expert in Canada on anti-dumping," said his son John, general counsel for Unilever Canada. Another huge early case was his involvement in the trans-Canada pipeline debate. His specialty allowed him more scope than the straightforward practice of corporate law and got him closer to the business world than many of his colleagues.
"He was always interested in the inter-relationship between Canada and the rest of the world, which was probably an outgrowth of his experience during the war and at Oxford," said his son. Mr. COYNE represented some of the largest firms in North America and served on the Canadian roster of panelists for dispute settlement procedures under Chapter 19 of the Canada-U.S. free-trade agreement.
Lawyer Ron CHENG, who worked closely with Mr. COYNE at Oslers in the early 1980s, described his mentor as an old-school lawyer who set an example by doing rather than by telling. "He was one of the hardest-working lawyers I have ever come across. He was thorough down to the last detail, exploring every facet of an issue or problem and anticipating arguments from the other side," said Mr. CHENG. "He was a wonderful advocate who spoke compellingly and had the ability to draw an analogy from everyday life to give immediacy to a dry and arcane aspect of the law."
He had an impetuous side, too. "He had a sense of fun and he was a fast driver, a fact that was confirmed by everybody who drove with him," said Mr. CHENG. "He drove his car the way I'm sure he used to fly his Beaufighter."
If the law was Mr. COYNE's profession, his family was his passion. In 1952, he married Margery Joan DANIELS. They had five children Jennifer, Deborah, Barbara, John and Ryland. Jennifer remembers the family codes, such as MIK (more in the kitchen) or FHB (family hold back) that were invariably delivered with a wink at the dinner table. She says her father fostered independent thought and freedom of choice in his children, loved them all unconditionally, and taught them to always be there for each other, as he had been for them.
Two of his children followed him into law. Deborah, now a judge with the Immigration and Refugee Board, figured on the public stage in the 1980s because of her political affiliation with then Newfoundland premier Clyde WELLS in the move to abort the Meech Lake accord and her romantic liaison with Pierre TRUDEAU, which culminated in the birth of their daughter Sarah in 1991.
In his early 70s, Mr. COYNE began showing early signs of Alzheimer's disease, an affliction that gradually erased his prodigious memory and his independence. "It is a terrible disease," said his sister. "Not only does it rob the individual of all of his intelligence, but how devastating it must be to see your father disintegrating before your eyes."
Mr. COYNE's son John divides the progression of his father's Alzheimer's into three stages, beginning in the early 1990s when his mother became alarmed at his father's forgetfulness. Within a couple of years, Mr. COYNE himself knew something was amiss, "but it was one of those things he didn't want to talk about," his son says, explaining that silence is one of the concomitant tragedies of this "terrible affliction." The third stage came when the children realized their father was seriously impaired. He continued to go to his law office every day until the time came when he could no longer remember how to get home. That was when his family made the decision to put him into an institution, in 2000.
"That's a day I won't forget," said John COYNE, "because I was the one who had to take him to the home [Perley Rideau Veterans' Health Centre] and sit chatting with him as all of the kids left the room one by one, and him not really knowing at that point that this was where he was going to be spending the rest of his days."
John (Jack) McCreary COYNE was born in Winnipeg on June 20, 1919. He died of Alzheimer's disease in Ottawa on June 28, 2005. He was 86. His wife, Joan, predeceased him, on July 3, 2002.
He is survived by his five children, their partners, nine grandchildren and his siblings James COYNE and Sally GOUIN.
His life will be celebrated at St. Bartholomew's Anglican Church in Ottawa on Tuesday.

Died on September 11, 2005 at South Muskoka Memorial Hospital in Bracebridge, Ontario. Husband of Sarah Mansfield DUNN from New Rochelle, New York and father, friend and greatest supporter of their children Hannah Margaret HOAG (Omer RASHID) of Montreal, Quebec and Matthew Warner HOAG of Vancouver, British Columbia. Members of the family who mourn this unexpected loss are his brother, William Arliss HOAG (Patricia James HOAG) of Oakville, Ontario and their children: Peter and his wife Jennifer WELLS and their children Chris, Jake and Will of Toronto; Janet HOAG and her husband St. Clair McCOLL and their children John-Michael, Noah and Keegan of Salt Spring Island, British Columbia and Laura HOAG and her husband Fred ROSE and their children Adam and Claire of Kingston, Ontario. He also leaves his cherished cousin Doris CHATHAM of Mill Valley, California, and brother-in-law, Tom DUNN of Boston, Massachusetts. The family is grateful for the support of members of the Rashid family of Kingston, Ontario and Etobicoke, Ontario. John was a good friend to many, a mentor, a raconteur and a bon vivant with a love for anything relating to France. He was an outstanding father, husband, son, brother and uncle. John grew up and attended schools in Preston (now Cambridge), Ontario. He graduated from the University of Toronto and worked for architectural firms in London, England and Boston, Massachusetts before joining the firm of Skidmore, Owing and Merrill of New York City. He worked for nearly a decade as their Resident Architect located in Owensboro, Kentucky; Greenville, South Carolina; and Des Moines, Iowa. He was project manager for the Master Plan of the State University of New York at Buffalo and Job Captain for the Fine Arts Building at the State University of New York College at Oswego, New York. While at Skidmore he also researched and designed a moveable partition system which later became an industry standard. In 1966 John returned to Canada. He worked for Marani Rounthwaite & Dick in Toronto prior to joining the University of Waterloo (Ontario) in 1967. He was at Waterloo for 25 years, until his retirement as the Architectural Program Administrator for the Co-operative Education. He found great delight in challenging and mentoring the architectural students in the practical side of architecture, encouraging them to take co-op positions in locales far from home, such as Scandinavia, England, Europe, the Caribbean, and with some of the most successful firms in the United States. He advised the Nova Scotia Institute of Technology and Texas A&M University on the establishment and development of cooperative educational programs. He maintained a small private residential practice, designing homes in Waterloo, Flesherton, Talisman Ski Resort (Ontario) and in Boone, North Carolina. He also designed renovations in Toronto and elsewhere in Ontario, one of which received an Award of Merit from Heritage Cambridge. John was very active in the architectural profession and in his church. He was known for his sense of fairness and professionalism. He had been Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Toronto Chapter of the Ontario Association of Architects, member of the Committee of Examiners of the Ontario Association of Architects from 1973-2001 and its Chairman from 1976-2001 (now the Canadian Architectural Certification Board), and Chairman of the Committee of Examiners, Ontario Advisory Committee,Royal Architectural Institute of Canada Syllabus; he chaired the 1970 Convention of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada held in Toronto. He was a member of the Commonwealth Association of Architects Educational Panel. His many years of leadership and service brought him two awards of which he was very proud. In 1984 he was made a Fellow of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada, the highest honour a Canadian Architect can receive. In 1987 he was the 3rd recipient of the Order of da Vinci awarded to those who have made 'significant contributions' to the profession in Ontario. He served as a member of the Board of Managers of Rosedale Presbyterian Church (Toronto), a church he had attended since university. While in New York, John had enjoyed being a member of the Mendelsohn Men's Chorus and thus was thrilled when Rosedale invited him to join the choir for a performance of Handel's 'Messiah'.

HOAG, John Warner, B.Arch, (Univ. of Toronto 1955,) Fellow of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (1984), Order of da Vinci (1987) and Honorary Membership (2004) granted by the Ontario Association of Architects. Born February 21, 1930 in Brantford, Ontario, predeceased by his parents John Arliss HOAG and Kathleen Warner HOAG and infant brother Peter. Died on September 11, 2005 at South Muskoka Memorial Hospital in Bracebridge, Ontario. Husband of Sarah Mansfield DUNN from New Rochelle, New York and father, friend and greatest supporter of their children Hannah Margaret HOAG (Omer RASHID) of Montreal, Quebec and Matthew Warner HOAG of Vancouver, British Columbia. Members of the family who mourn this unexpected loss are his brother, William Arliss HOAG (Patricia James HOAG) of Oakville, Ontario and their children: Peter and his wife Jennifer WELLS and their children Chris, Jake and Will of Toronto; Janet HOAG and her husband St. Clair McCOLL and their children John-Michael, Noah and Keegan of Salt Spring Island, British Columbia and Laura HOAG and her husband Fred ROSE and their children Adam and Claire of Kingston, Ontario. He also leaves his cherished cousin Doris CHATHAM of Mill Valley, California, and brother-in-law, Tom DUNN of Boston, Massachusetts. The family is grateful for the support of members of the Rashid family of Kingston, Ontario and Etobicoke, Ontario. John was a good friend to many, a mentor, a raconteur and a bon vivant with a love for anything relating to France. He was an outstanding father, husband, son, brother and uncle. John grew up and attended schools in Preston (now Cambridge), Ontario. He graduated from the University of Toronto and worked for architectural firms in London, England and Boston, Massachusetts before joining the firm of Skidmore, Owing and Merrill of New York City. He worked for nearly a decade as their Resident Architect located in Owensboro, Kentucky; Greenville, South Carolina; and Des Moines, Iowa. He was project manager for the Master Plan of the State University of New York at Buffalo and Job Captain for the Fine Arts Building at the State University of New York College at Oswego, New York. While at Skidmore he also researched and designed a moveable partition system which later became an industry standard. In 1966 John returned to Canada. He worked for Marani Rounthwaite & Dick in Toronto prior to joining the University of Waterloo (Ontario) in 1967. He was at Waterloo for 25 years, until his retirement as the Architectural Program Administrator for Co-operative Education. He found great delight in challenging and mentoring the architectural students in the practical side of architecture, encouraging them to take co-op positions in locales far from home, such as Scandinavia, England, Europe, the Caribbean, and with some of the most successful firms in the United States. He advised the Nova Scotia Institute of Technology and Texas A&M University on the establishment and development of cooperative educational programs. He maintained a small private residential practice, designing homes in Waterloo, Flesherton, Talisman Ski Resort (Ontario) and in Boone, North Carolina. He also designed renovations in Toronto and elsewhere in Ontario, one of which received an Award of Merit from Heritage Cambridge. John was very active in the architectural profession and in his church. He was known for his sense of fairness and professionalism. He had been Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Toronto Chapter of the Ontario Association of Architects, member of the Committee of Examiners of the Ontario Association of Architects from 1973-2001 and its Chairman from 1976-2001 (now the Canadian Architectural Certification Board), and Chairman of the Committee of Examiners, Ontario Advisory Committee, Royal Architectural Institute of Canada Syllabus; he chaired the 1970 Convention of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada held in Toronto. He was a member of the Commonwealth Association of Architects Educational Panel. His many years of leadership and service brought him two awards of which he was very proud. In 1984 he was made a Fellow of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada, the highest honour a Canadian Architect can receive. In 1987 he was the 3rd recipient of the Order of da Vinci awarded to those who have made 'significant contributions' to the profession in Ontario. He served as a member of the Board of Managers of Rosedale Presbyterian Church (Toronto), a church he had attended since university. While in New York, John had enjoyed being a member of the Mendelssohn Men's Chorus and thus was thrilled when Rosedale invited him to join the choir for a performance of Handel's 'Messiah'. John had been Chairman for 19 years of the Committee on Church Architecture for the Presbyterian Church in Canada, which won a Premier's Award for Accessibility (1986) for their handbook of standards and accessibility guidelines for church architecture. A funeral service will be held at Rosedale Presbyterian Church, 129 South Drive (corner of South Drive and Mt.
