Beach's 'guardian angel' difficult, beloved
Street person would have lineup waiting to talk
Customers took care of the scrappy Steve Whale
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
For years he was there, outside the Beach ValuMart on Queen St. E., perched on a canvas stool someone had given him, wrapped in multiple layers of donated clothing and hand-knit scarves no matter what the weather, the copies of the Outreach newspaper he was selling carefully encased in plastic, the coins from his sales filling up a battered coffee cup.
"God bless," he'd say if you stopped to say hello, even if you didn't buy a paper.
And though this was the Beach, putatively an epicentre of smug yuppiedom, and even though he was a street person, a recovering alcoholic and binge crack user, Steve WHALE belonged there and was beloved there. There was always somebody talking to him heck, sometimes there was a lineup to talk to him.
"I considered him my brother; we would talk about everything," said Michael SOMERS, an insurance broker. "I'd sit for hours with him, me cross-legged on the sidewalk, like a little kid."
Still, one or two people complained to the grocery store management during the six or seven years WHALE was outside the store most afternoons and early evenings.
"Some people felt Steve was sitting there begging, which he really wasn't," said Elaine ROBERTS, the front-end store manager.
He used to carry home the groceries of an elderly blind woman he was always good for a quarter for the pay phone.
"You don't have to do that," he'd say to bicyclists about to lock their bikes to a post. "I'll watch 'em for you."
And then there were the dogs. He loved them, knew them all by name, and took care of them when their owners ducked into the store.
He was a quirky guy: a diabetic who liked his coffee with 14 packets of sweetener, a big hockey fan who almost swooned the day one of his customers gave him a signed Maple Leaf sweater and two tickets to a game.
He made sure everyone knew he worked a full day, selling the street newspaper at Yonge and Charles Sts. most mornings, often visiting Sanctuary, a drop-in for street people and the homeless, before taking the streetcar almost to the end of the Queen St. line.
And he made sure people were up to date on the declining state of his health; he had throat cancer, though there was never any point in lecturing him about his chain-smoking. He was living in the New Edwin Hotel -- and his Beach Friends learned not to get him going on what he thought about shelters or men's hostels, or the Mike Harris government, for that matter -- but when he was hospitalized four years ago with a serious bout of pneumonia, he lost his chance at government housing.
Back at his post, still coughing, still smoking, he would tell anyone who asked what had happened. He wasn't complaining, but a couple of Beach residents who understood how social services worked lobbied on his behalf and got WHALE a subsidized bachelor apartment in a handsome development almost kitty-corner from where he worked.
WHALE was overjoyed. "I've got my own bathroom and kitchen," he would say. Soon he had so many pots, pans, appliances and furnishings from his Beach Friends, he had to beg people to stop giving him things. He slept on a pile of blankets on the floor, because he wanted to.
Some of his customers used to take him to the movies at the local Fox Cinema. Others made a point of doing the annual Beaches Jazz Festival with him.
About three years ago, WHALE needed radiation treatment. Every day for five weeks, retired educators and Beach neighbours Doug VAN HAMME and Ken LAUDER drove him down to Princess Margaret Hospital where they waited with him, and then drove him back to the Beach again. LAUDER's 92-year-old mother knit WHALE a scarf and toque every year, and LAUDER often delivered WHALE home-cooked meals.
"He was a difficult guy, but every story he told about his life all ended with him acknowledging his fault and his mistakes, which all had to do with drinking and drugs," LAUDER said. "It was never anybody else's fault. How could you not like and respect someone like that?"
WHALE told LAUDER he grew up in the east end of Toronto, the son of a butcher who never made it through Grade 8 because he played hooky from school. He had a lot of jobs: he might have been a postman and he might have once worked at the former Greenwood racetrack. He told LAUDER his favourite job was driving a truck up to northern Ontario. He was a scrapper, the kind of guy who never walked away from a fight, and he got fired a lot.
He told some he was alone in the world; to others, he admitted he had a family. LAUDER discovered WHALE's son and namesake when he once accidentally called the wrong hotel looking for Steve WHALE.
When his cancer returned in 2003, WHALE moved back to the New Edwin. "He said the people there knew him and would take care of him," LAUDER recalled.
He cussed more than one nurse right out of his room, said Jim PAPADACOS, the owner and operator of the New Edwin. But PAPADACOS and his staff were protective of WHALE, as LAUDER and VAN HAMME discovered one day when they tried to visit him. "Three very big, very tough guys blocked us until we convinced them we were his Friends," VAN HAMME said.
WHALE's tongue had thickened and he was having trouble speaking, though he kept coming out to his spot on the sidewalk on some of the coldest and cruellest days this past winter. But in early April, he was rushed from the New Edwin Hotel to Mount Sinai Hospital.
"He refused St. Mike's Hospital -- that was typical Steve," LAUDER said with a laugh.
The last time he and VAN HAMME saw WHALE, he was excited about the impending visit of his long-estranged son. He said he wouldn't speak to him whenever they bumped into each other at the Good Shepherd Refuge.
WHALE died soon afterward. LAUDER doesn't know the exact date because none of WHALE's Friends from the Beach qualify as family and therefore they can't access that information. Nor does anyone know where WHALE is buried, though the city buries unclaimed bodies in unmarked graves in cemeteries throughout the city. No one is even sure how old he was; some think 56, others 64.
On the last day of spring, people gathered outside the ValuMart for a memorial service. The store donated 50 long-stemmed snapdragons to give to the participants, but there weren't nearly enough. The passing streetcars slowed and people stared at the growing circle of families, dogs, cyclists and shoppers around the spot where WHALE always sat.
Amanda JACKSON had tears running down her face remembering the man with whom she traded paperbacks and who helped her cope when a member of her own family was battling drugs. He was the first person she told when she decided to leave her marriage.
"All he said was 'Are you happy?'" she recalled. "He made me think of a little angel in the Beach. A guardian angel."
But it was Greg PAUL from Sanctuary who reconciled this Steve WHALE with the querulous shut-in who gambled on the ponies and could never completely kick his crack habit.
"Steve told me when he moved out to the Beach, he had found a community," he said. "He died knowing he was embraced by this community."

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.
