KILPATRICK, Reverend David G.
It is with profound sadness the family of Reverend David Gordon KILPATRICK mourn his passing. He died at Hunter Memorial Hospital Teulon, Manitoba on Friday, May 20th, 2005. Surrounded by his family, he went peacefully home into the loving arms of the God he served.
David was born October 14, 1926 at Ottawa, Ontario; third son of Reverend Dr. George G.D. KILPATRICK and his wife Ruth McGillivray FOTHERINGHAM. Through childhood and adolescence he grew up and attended school in Ottawa, Hamilton, Montreal and Toronto. His summers were lived at the family's Go Home Bay cottage.
He obtained his B.A. (Honours History) from Bishops University. He attended McGill Divinity School for two of the three years taking his second year at Saint Mary's College, St. Andrews Scotland and received his B.Div.
He was ordained to the ministry of the United Church of Canada in 1953 by Montreal, Ottawa Conference; the seventh generation of ministers in the KILPATRICK family.
During his student days he served as summer supply on the Labrador Coast at Harrington Harbour. After ordination he was appointed as the first United Church Minister at Uranium City, Saskatchewan. and was pivotal in establishing the church there and at the nearby Eldorado Mine. He then moved to the Marsden\Neilburg Saskatchewan, charge in 1954. In 1957-58 he attended Harvard Divinity School at Andover Newton.
In 1958 he was appointed "ordained supply" at Sydenham, Ontario, where he met and married his wife Emily Grace (WOOD) in 1960. Together they ministered and raised their family of three, moving out West in 1964. He served charges in Western Canada including Lucky Lake, Saskatchewan, Shellbrook, Saskatchewan and Teulon, Manitoba where he eventually retired.
His command of the spoken word was a strength in his ministry. His faith in the Christ he served never wavered and was especially noticeable in his conduct of funerals.
His children Cynthia, Ian and Geoffrey have always enjoyed his love and support. The church was his life and his family his first love.
He was a gentle soul who loved the outdoors, animals, and good-natured visit with anyone. He had a profound love of music and his Scottish heritage. He enjoyed acting and worked with the Fantasy Theatre for children from 1988-97. He was a member of the Teulon Volunteer Ambulance program, Teulon and District Chamber of Commerce, and a life member of the Teulon and District Lions Club.

I Remember -- Peter JENNINGS
By Peter DESBARATS, Saturday, August 13, 2005, Page S11
Most of the public recollections of Peter JENNINGS have cited his generosity, particularly when it came to other journalists. I experienced an outstanding example of this.
It was near the end of the 1980s. I had been the journalism dean at the University of Western Ontario since 1981. A large part of this job, and similar positions in academia, was raising money. Someone came up with a brilliant idea -- we would gather together a dozen of the top Canadian journalists from home and abroad for a public celebration of their talent. It would be truly a "Gathering of the Giants."
From the outset it was evident that we would need the support of the "giant of giants," Peter JENNINGS. Clearly, he had achieved that status among Canadian journalists working in Canada, in the United States and elsewhere. He was in a class by himself.
So I flew to New York to have lunch with him. This had been surprisingly easy to arrange, despite the fact that our paths had not previously crossed. There is a camaraderie among journalists that I had experienced on assignment in many countries and Peter was a prime example of this.
We enjoyed an unpretentious lunch in the ABC network's cafeteria and chatted about mutual Friends before I made my pitch. After a minimum of discussion he agreed to be one of our giants. The rest soon followed: the two other Peters, MANSBRIDGE and GZOWSKI the two Barbaras, FRUM and AMIEL; Morley Safer from 60 Minutes, Lloyd ROBERSTON of CTV, Allan FOTHERINGHAM, Sydney Gruson of The New York Times, Jeffrey SIMPSON of The Globe and Mail, Henry CHAMP of CTV, Robert McNeil of PBS and Richard GWYN of the Toronto Star, for a total of 13.
Months later, after a tremendous amount of work by my committee in Toronto, we were approaching the big night at Toronto's Metro Convention Centre. There had been a few minor bumps along the way, but Peter JENNINGS was still on board. By this time I had learned to appreciate how unusual this was.
Peter gave me to understand that ABC wasn't particularly keen on anything that highlighted his Canadian background and citizenship. I also got the impression that his prominent role in this fundraiser was unusual and probably would not have been undertaken for a journalism school in the United States.
In the final weeks I began to worry about some major news event conflicting with our gathering and taking Peter to some far-flung but newsworthy corner of the world. He couldn't guarantee that this wouldn't happen but simply repeated that he would make every effort to attend.
My nightmare came true when the destruction of the Berlin Wall in November, 1989, unleashed a whole series of European events. I can't remember exactly which one conflicted with our gathering, only that it was significant enough to make me almost abandon hope. But Peter arrived on schedule in a private plane from New York, stopping for our event in Toronto before flying immediately that night to some European capital or other.
I watched him on the screen the following night in amazement, not so much for his profound professionalism but for his amazing Friendship and generosity.
But there's more. After our Oscar-type celebration of the 13 giants on the convention centre's main stage -- complete with video highlights of their careers and mini-interviews by 13 awestruck journalism students -- and after a lavish buffet supper ("food from the news capitals of the world"), the entertainment consisted of a mock newscast anchored by Peter JENNINGS, Lloyd ROBERTSON and Peter MANSBRIDGE. The rest of the 13 were in a nearby studio supposedly reporting from Washington, London, Moscow and other impressive datelines.
Peter gave my script for this tomfoolery his full attention, reading it carefully beforehand, underlining certain parts and rehearsing under his breath. The other two anchors quickly rose to the challenge, providing our audience with a hilarious display of competitive news delivery as they worked shamelessly to milk laughs from their appreciative audience.
The only restriction placed by Peter on this unique performance was that no one in the control room would make an unauthorized pirate tape of it. And as far as I know, no one did, because I'm sure it would have turned up by now.
We raised about $80,000 for the journalism school that night and I always felt that I had never thanked him properly. So thanks, Peter. You stood for everything that was thoughtful, professional and generous about journalism at its best.
Peter DESBARATS, a former Global television anchor, was dean of the graduate journalism program at the University of Western Ontario from 1981 to 1996.
