KIRKWOOD, Brian A.
After a courageous three-year battle with cancer, in his 63rd year, Brian passed away peacefully at home on August 31, 2005, with his loving wife and family by his side.
Beloved husband of Liz, proud father of Peter, Katie, Justin, Kevin and his wife Jody, along with step children Jenn, Tim and Christopher Wray AUGER; brother of David, and grandfather to Olivia, Garret and Gabrielle, he will also be sadly missed by his aunts Nancy and Glo, and his cousins and Friends.
Brian had a full, adventurous and exciting life, leaving his mark on the music and beverage alcohol industries, spending many years as a professional musician and member of the bands 'Magic Bubble' and 'Seadog', producing 36 recordings, including two albums.
He learned his skills in sales and senior management while working with the Campbell Soup Company in Alberta, and as Sales Manager, Canned Food Division, in Ontario; as Director of Sales for Brights Wines (now Vincor), managing the sales force and retail store operations; then as National Vice-President, Sales, with Diageo Canada.
In 1998, he formed his own company, The Kirkwood Group, to sell and market international wines, beers and spirits - the largest of which are yellow tail Wines from Australia, and DAB beer from Germany - throughout Canada.
The company carries on with a strong management staff and a great portfolio of brands. Brian's sons Peter, Kevin and Tim, are working in the company, while his wife Liz is a director on its Advisory Council.
Brian was on the Board of Directors of the Canadian Hospitality Foundation and the Ontario Hostelry Institute, organizations dedicated to the education of hospitality students, and he received the Gold Award for his contribution to the industry. He was also on the Advisory Board of Ontario Restaurant News since the magazine's inception in 1988.
Brian loved photography, capturing hundreds of pictures of old barns. His real passion was taking photos of his family and places he loved to visit, which he kept in numerous albums. He liked to collect coins, western movies and other mementos, displaying them at his home and at his cottage on Stormy Lake in Haliburton, which he truly loved.
Brian's life has been full and rewarding, and he was comforted by all the love and kindnesses he received from his family, Friends, and industry associates. He was a man of boundless curiosity and interest in others. Charming, friendly, gracious, sentimental and well liked by those he worked with and his close Friends, he will be missed and fondly remembered. His wish was for us to celebrate life and not mourn his passing.
In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate a donation in Brian's memory to Cancer Research at Princess Margaret Hospital, or to a charity of your choice.
The family sends a personal thank-you to Dr. Jonathan LAPP of Oakville.
The funeral service will be held at 2: 30 p.m. this Saturday, September 3, at the Glen Oaks Memorial Gardens, 3164 9th Line, Oakville, Ontario (905) 257-8822. Reception to follow.
Visitation is on Friday, September 2, at The Reception Center, Glen Oaks Memorial Gardens, from 2 to 4, and from 7 to 9 p.m.

Brian KIRKWOOD, Wine Merchant: (1943-2005)
Former musician with the Canadian band Magic Bubble gave up rock 'n' roll to find work in the food industry and survived a devastating layoff to start his own wildly successful company
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Thursday, December 22, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- When he was a long-haired member of a rock band in his 20s, Bruce KIRKWOOD was admonished by a family member who told him that he wouldn't amount to anything. The remark didn't faze him. Years later, when he was suddenly laid off from a good job, he didn't let that bother him, either. Instead, he formed his own company and acquired distribution rights to Yellow Tail Shiraz, an Australian product that has become a Canadian wine craze.
In his first career choice, Mr. KIRKWOOD had been bass guitarist and trumpet player in the bands Magic Bubble and Seadog, groups whose 36 recordings included five albums. Magic Bubble was so chic in Canada that it earned a full-page feature in the Toronto Star on December 23, 1973. "Brian was a natural comedian," said Frank CHIARELLI, a band mate for five years. "He did a lot of comedy sketches on stage."
Later, when he sought a more stable life, Mr. KIRKWOOD got involved in selling food and beverages, first with Campbell Soup Co. in Alberta and then later in Ontario where he became sales manager of its canned-food division.
"I sort of broke company rules at Campbell by hiring Brian when he was over 30," said Les ROBINSON, one of Mr. KIRKWOOD's bosses. "But he had some experience with a prepared-meats company and he played in a band, which meant he had experience meeting the public. We put him on our watch list."
Mr. KIRKWOOD stayed with Campbell for close to five years before jumping to Bright's Wines (now Vincor) in 1980 where he was responsible for its retail stores. In 1988, he moved to United Distillers, which later became the huge conglomerate Diageo Canada. He rose to become national vice-president of sales but left the company when he was laid off in 1993.
While being suddenly jobless was devastating, Mr. KIRKWOOD returned to the industry at the head of a company that would sell and market international wines, beers and spirits. In its early days, the Kirkwood Group had just one product -- DAB beer from Germany and struggled to stay in business. Then, in 2000, everything changed. He attended a trade show in Bordeaux, France, where he met Australian John Soutter, Yellow Tail's export director, with the result that the KIRKWOOD Group beat out industry giants Diageo and Maxxium for the prized account.
That hurdle removed, Mr. KIRKWOOD then had to convince the Liquor Control Board of Ontario to put Yellow Tail on its store shelves. "The first cases rolled into Liquor Control Board of Ontario stores in late summer of 2003," said Peter KIRKWOOD, one of Mr. KIRKWOOD's sons. "We knew it would be a great success and we believed in the product. The wine changed the focus of the company."
Yellow Tail Shiraz has since supplanted Wolf Blass Yellow Label Cabernet Sauvignon as the top-selling red wine in Ontario and Canada. Yellow Tail Chardonnay is also a popular product and ranks second in white-wine sales behind Lindemans Bin 65 Chardonnay.
In the fiscal year that ended in September of 2005, 495,000 cases of Yellow Tail wine were sold in Canada, including 345,000 in Ontario. In addition, the company retains DAB, along with Dooley's, a toffee-flavoured cream liqueur, and a slow-aged Nicaraguan rum, plus a number of French wines.
"Brian helped turn that company into a multi-million dollar operation," said Les ROBINSON.
Brian KIRKWOOD was born April 1, 1943, in Kitchener, Ontario He died on August 31, 2005, of cancer at his home in Oakville, Ontario He was 62. He is survived by his wife Liz, brother David and children Peter, Katie, Justin and Kevin, plus stepchildren Jenn, Christopher and Tim. He was predeceased by his parents Alan and June.

CIFALDI, Maria (née PIRONAGGI)
Surrounded by her loving family, Maria CIFALDI passed away after a courageous battle with cancer on Wednesday, April 27, 2005, in her 59th year. Beloved wife of Rocco for 41 years. Dearly loved mother of Lina and her husband Nick D'ORIA, Jane and her husband Simon FARRUGIA, Nancy and her husband Dominic MAZZA. She will be sadly missed by her grandchildren John, Rocco, Sarah, Selena and Matteo. Predeceased by her parents Giuseppe PIRONAGGI and Maria DEFAZIO of Italy, In-laws Domenico CIFALDI and Nicolina CERICOLA. Also survived by brothers and sister Domenico and wife Assunta PIRONAGGI, Giovannina and husband Amos SGROMO, Antonio PIRONAGGI and wife Angelina TROPEA of Italy. Predeceased by sister Angelina PIRONAGGI and husband Francesco GIGLIOTTI of Italy.
Maria was a remarkable woman. She devoted her entire life to her husband, children, grandchildren, family members and Friends. She was about laughter, good times, cooking, vacations, watching her husband play and coach soccer and more recently - taking up the game of golf - it was her determination to learn the game, even though she had to put up with the "private lessons" given by her husband Rocco. Those lessons paid off however, as she achieved a hole-in-one in 2000 and has won numerous championship flights at Westhaven Golf and County Club. Maria never put anything she wanted to do aside and that is why she has achieved so much. She has achieved satisfaction by taking the time to enjoy what life had to offer her. Even though we are losing her at a relatively young age, she had no regrets in life - and we definitely gained by having such a loving, joyful and strong woman in our lives. Family and Friends will be received at Westview Funeral Chapel, 709 Wonderland Road North, on Saturday from 7: 00-9:00 p.m. and Sunday from 2: 00-4:00 p.m. and 7:00-9:00 p.m. The funeral mass will be celebrated at Saint Mary's Church, 345 Lyle Street, on Monday, May 2, 2005 at 11: 00 a.m. with Father Joseph DABROWSKI officiating and Father Pio D'ORIA assisting. Entombment at St. Peter's Cemetery. At our mother's request, in lieu of flowers, those wishing to make a donation are asked to consider the Run for Ovarian Cancer, c/o 810 Maitland St, Unit #5, London, Ontario, N5Y 5K3. The family wishes to thank Dr. CAREY, Dr. HARLE and his team as well as all the nurses at London Health Sciences Centre and Parkwood Hospital Palliative Care, who wholeheartedly assisted with her care. "To Know Herwas To Love Her"
