I Remember -- Red HORNER
By Rob MacLAUCHLAN, Monday, May 9, 2005, Page S6
Rob MacLAUCHLAN of Toronto writes about Red HORNER, whose obituary appeared on April 29.
At the height of the Depression in the winter of 1935, three young boys from Stanhope on the north shore of Prince Edward Island decided to write a letter to their favourite Toronto Maple Leafs player, Red HORNER.
The theme of the letter was that the boys, who all lived on a small dairy farm where they shared one pair of skates among 11 children, believed "they had the stuff to make it to the National Hockey League." My father Leslie MacLAUCHLAN (11,) my uncle Harry (9) and Mervyn ROBINSON (9) were convinced that the only thing standing in their way was a lack of hockey equipment and they had come to the conclusion that there must be plenty of it lying around Maple Leaf Gardens. If Red would just toss it into a box, they'd sure put it to good use.
Much to their dismay, the box never arrived. Years later, I had become good Friends with Stewart GAVIN, who played for the Leafs from 1980 to 1985. Through him I was able to track down Mr. HORNER, who learned about the three boys from Stanhope. A few weeks later, a signed photograph of Mr. HORNER was delivered by Stew. Included on the photograph was the note: "Les: Sorry, the stuff must have got lost in the mail. Yours truly, Red HORNER."
That framed photograph hangs proudly in my parent's home, validation that Red at least believed they had the "stuff" to make it to the National Hockey League.

MAHER, Edward Gerard " Gerry"
Retired Reinsurance Executive. Devoted husband, loving father and grandfather, beloved brother, uncle and friend, passed away suddenly November 26, 2005 at Lee Memorial Hospital, Fort Myers, Florida as a result of injuries sustained from a fall. Gerry was a model of faith, fortitude and love of family. He was a respected business executive, having graduated from Fordham in 1958, and worked for Guy Carpenter Reinsurance for over 35 years. In his later years, he was responsible for opening branches in many countries all over the world. Eighteen of his years with Guy Carpenter were spent in Toronto, Canada, where he raised his children. He forged many Friendships among his colleagues, here at home and internationally. Gerry was known to be a model of good stewardship in all aspects of his professional endeavours. When he retired, he offered his knowledge through volunteer efforts with Service Corps of Retired Executives, and parish finance administration for the parishes he attended. Gerry was a wondeful family man. He was born to John and Anne (DURCAN) MAHER, October 16, 1927, in the shadows of Mt. Nephin in Co. Mayo, Ireland. In his youth he participated in many athletic and scholastic adventures including boxing and drama. Gerry came to America in 1947, and worked for his Uncle Jack DURCAN while putting himself through college. He stayed very close to his 14 siblings in Ireland, England and New York. In 1952 he met the love of his life, Eileen STEEL, who survives him. They were married June 2, 1956. Together they raised seven children. Through perseverance and sacrifice, Gerry assured that each of his children could go to college. He often reminded his children of the value and importance of a liberal arts education. Gerry's greatest delight came from watching his grown children start their own families; he was very proud of his 19 grandchildren. He hoped to positively impact the next generation through family gatherings where many humorous stories were shared along with an appreciation of the family history and heritage. He was, above all else, a man of faith, devoted to daily reception of the Eucharist and recitation of the rosary. He was a member of St. Andrew Catholic Church in Cape Coral, Corpus Christi Catholic Church in Chatham, New Jersey, and St. Andrew's Catholic Church in Oakville, Ontario. He actively offered his time, talent and treasure to the church, especially through his volunteer work with the Corpus Christi Parish; as the mediator of the parish pastoral council at St. Andrew in Cape Coral; the St. Vincent de Paul Society, A.F.C.A.A.M. (African Caribbean American Ministry) and as a lector and Eucharistic Minister. He was a 4th Degree member of the Knights of Columbus. The best lessons of faith were taught by his lived example. In 2002, his son Brian died tragically, and this left a hole in Gerry's heart that never mended. We are comforted to know that father and son are now united in the presence of Christ, and that Gerry's heart no longer aches. We have lost our husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. Our consolation is our faith in the day we will see him again, in his eternal happiness. In his 78 years Gerry touched the minds, hearts and souls of many. He was preceded in death by his parents, his brother Seamus MAHER of Manchester, England, and his son Brian MAHER of Charlotte, North Carolina. He is survived by his wife of 49 years, Eileen; children Kevin (Lucy) MAHER of Chatham, New Jersey Phyllis (David J.) FLORIAN of Kalamazoo, Michigan; Diane (Philip) SARIKAS of Beaverton, Oregon; Clare (David) EMERY of Calgary, Canada; Carol (William) MURRAY of Chatham, New Jersey; Patrick (Kim) MAHER of Beaverton, Oregon; his daughter-in-law Barbara (Davren) MAHER; nineteen grandchildren; and thirteen of his siblings, Noreen GAVIN, Anthony MAHER, Kathleen MAHER, Muiradack MAHER, all of Ireland; Grace COCK, Julia GORZKIEWICZ of England; Anne DINNEGAN of Cape Coral; Patrick MAHER, John MAHER, Frank MAHER, Theresa COY
