KHAN, Namir Faiyaz
It is with the deepest regret and sorrow that we announce the passing of Namir Faiyaz KHAN, a brilliant teacher, writer and actor who departed suddenly from this world on Sunday, July 10, 2005. He was born in the city of Allahabad, India on January 11, 1955 to Mumtaz Jahan KHAN and Fayaz Bahadur KHAN. He received his Bachelor and Masters degrees in Political Science at Carleton University in Ottawa. He was predeceased by his brother Nasir KHAN and will be missed by his loving family including brothers Nadir KHAN of Toronto and Nazir KHAN of California, sisters Nazish DHIR (née KHAN) of Oakville and Nigat HUSSIEN (née KHAN) of Dubai, India, numerous nieces, nephews and in-laws and his close family of Friends including Cynthia ROBERTS, Arnd JURGENSEN, Suzanne ELLENBOGEN, Wendy DIX, Mark O'HARE, Greg KLYMKIW and many, many others. Namir's professional and artistic achievements are incalculable. As a writer he co-authored numerous published works including the books 'Healthy Cities', 'Sustainable Production' and 'Healthy Work'. He co-wrote the screenplay for the acclaimed feature film, 'Jack of Hearts' and served as a script editor and consultant to numerous film professionals. Namir's love for cinema was matched by his love for teaching at numerous universities and colleges and most recently and prominently as a lecturer at the Centre For Technology and Social Development in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at the University of Toronto where hundreds of students received his passionate and learned lectures. At the Centre Namir conducted extremely valuable research and also served as the editor of the Bulletin of Science, Technology and Society. Namir was also a prolific actor and appeared in a number of legendary Canadian films including Roadkill, Highway 61, Dance Me Outside, Arrowhead and Jack of Hearts. Namir's life will be celebrated Thursday, July 14, 9: 30 a.m. at the Toronto Necropolis located at 200 Winchester Street in Toronto.

Namir KHAN, Lecturer (1955-2005)
University of Toronto teacher, film buff and some-time actor who enjoyed performing in front of his classes nurtured a dark secret
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to the Globe and Mail, Tuesday, October 4, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- Namir KHAN's life was a dichotomy. In his professional domain, he was an eloquent, fiery orator, whose speeches roused lecture rooms at the University of Toronto. In private, he was a complex, bland man, who kept many secrets to himself.
"He had a brilliant flair for performing. It contrasted with his private life of simplicity and frugality," said one of his Friends, Greg KLYMKIW.
Mr. KHAN's animated, note-less lectures puzzled the most hardened of freshmen students in the U of T's engineering department. These students were accustomed to no-nonsense, cold, hard facts in math and science and wondered why Mr. KHAN, who stood a mere 5-foot-1, sprinkled his lectures with environmental, political and psychological perspectives. The one-time supporting-role actor even interjected his love of cinema, literary and pop culture into his talks.
"He loved performing strategically and that also fed him as a lecturer," Mr. KLYMKIW said. "Seventy five per cent of his speeches had to do with movies. I watched Lawrence of Arabia with him over 20 times. He saw it hundreds of times. Lawrence as a human being was a complex person and there were parallels with Namir."
Mr. KHAN sought to make his lectures entertaining and many students stick-handled to get into his classes. His chief intellectual influences were German philosopher Martin Heidegger and French sociologist Jacques Ellul.
He would start each day drinking a cup of Earl Grey tea and tackling the cryptic crossword puzzle in The Globe and Mail. By midday, he would have finished an academic treatise, with evenings devoted to polishing off one or two mystery, science-fiction or historical books.
Born in India, Namir KHAN was 18 when he arrived in Canada. He soon enrolled at Carleton University, graduating in 1979. He got his master's in 1983 and then switched to the University of Toronto to start work on his doctorate, which he never completed. He became a teacher's assistant at the University of Toronto in 1984, teaching social sciences and engineering courses before joining the university's faculty of engineering full-time in "He was such a large part of my mind and my vocabulary," said Wendy DIX, one of his former girlfriends. "He was one of the most creative intellectuals I've ever known. I was a bit of an observer but he never condescended. He was probably the most brilliant mind in the room, and where people were not as smart or educated, he didn't exclude them."
Filmmaker Cynthia ROBERTS, another former girlfriend, recalls meeting him at Carleton University in 1981 when both were photography buffs. She was toting around a large-format Mamiya camera, prompting him to remark, "That's a big camera." He then asked her out on a date.
For all the passion he produced in front of a classroom, Mr. KHAN's real love was cinema. He not only watched movies frequently, he played roles in a number of them. In 1989, Mr. KHAN ran into Queer as Folk director Bruce McDonald and soon found himself cast as an undertaker in Highway 61. Later, Mr. McDonald used him as a bartender in Dance Me Outside, as a photographer in Elimination Dance and a cameraman in Roadkill. At Ms. ROBERTS's request, Mr. KHAN wrote a screenplay for an underground production called Jack of Hearts about a scientist involved with body implants. One of his last acts in the movie business was a voice-over in the 1997 film City of Dark.
By 1997, Mr. KHAN had decided to cut back on the movie business to spend more time teaching and to edit the U of T's Bulletin of Science, Technology and Society.
A few years ago, Mr. KHAN discovered he had Korsakoff's syndrome, a brain disorder that stems from excessive alcohol use and is usually coupled with poor eating habits. Although he was known to be a binge drinker who loved rum and coke, the news astonished his Friends. "He was the life of the party but he kept his close Friends at bay," said his friend Arnd JURGENSEN. "To find out that he had a serious drinking problem was of considerable shock."
In Korsakoff's syndrome, prolonged alcohol causes growths on the brain; eventually, Mr. KHAN was forced to give up teaching. As a lecturer who didn't take notes and relied strictly on memory, the illness came as a severe blow. However, when told the problem was reversible if he stopped drinking, and that he would be "good as new" within six months, Mr. KHAN refused to quit.
"He was very gifted but he drank himself to the grave," said one of his university superiors.
Others did not know until near the end. "I never realized Namir was so close to death," Ms. DIX said.
Ironically, near the end of his life, Mr. KHAN began working on a screenplay that involved a detective who had developed Korsakoff's syndrome.
Namir KHAN was born January 11, 1955, in Allahabad, India. He died in Toronto on July 10, 2005. A coroner's report on the cause of death proved inconclusive. He had been suffering for several years from Korsakoff's syndrome. He is survived by brothers Nadir and Nazir and sisters Nazish and Nigaf. He was predeceased by his parents Faiyaz and Mumtaz Jahan KHAN and a brother, Nasir.

ERB, John Edwin (13 September 1932-31 July, 2005)
Reverend Canon, Executive Director, Anglican Foundation
"We have lots of love, Friendship, family; we are blessed." These were some of John's last words, given through a wonderful smile, as his magnificent brain was being ravaged by the Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease. John was born in Kitchener, Ontario, to the late Irvin and Sally ERB (née MEYSCHEIN.) He will always be missed by his adored children Nicholas and Katie, his wife Didy (née BRADISH) of 29 years, his loving sisters and brothers-in-law Cathie and John HOWARD, Hornby Island, British Columbia, and Margie and Bob CARR, Hamilton. 'John The Giant' was a special uncle to Stephen HOWARD and Rhonda SPENCE, Emily HOWARD and Alex LAVIGNE; Tom HOWARD and Landys KLYNE; Mary HOWARD, Stewart, Duncan, Will and Angus MURRAY; Sally HOWARD, Jim and Tommy HAMAGUCHI; Sarah CARR Tim CARR and Kate FEIGHTNER; Pat CARR, Nadine HEINTZ and Oliver CARR; and friend David HUGHES. His many ERB and Meyschein family cousins love him and will miss him.
A passionate Canadian, John was a leader, Anglican Priest, teacher, traveller, camper and actor. Until his late teens John was a member of Trinity United, the ERB family's church, where he grew up in the Sunday School. He attended 'Young People's' both there and at Saint John the Evangelist Anglican Church. When he returned after working for a year in England, he joined the confirmation class at Saint John. Thus began his journey to become an Anglican priest. Graduating from the Kitchener Public School system and Wilfred Laurier University, he received his early theological training from Trinity College. He continued graduate studies in later years in Boston, Virginia and Jerusalem.
John's ministry began at St. Aidan's in 1965. In 1967 his strong identification with young people led him to a truly successful period as Director of Youth for the Church of England, both in Guyana, S.A. and then in the United Kingdom..
John returned to Canada with Didy in December 1973 and continued his ministries, first at Grace Church on the Hill, then at St. Luke's East York. In 1981 he became Rector of St. Michael and All Angels, where he embraced all, and many saw him as more than a pastor. He retired from St. Michael's in 1997. For the past seven years John's energetic leadership has been devoted to the Anglican Foundation of Canada, a work he loved. It enabled him to travel the length and breadth of this country, often visiting parishes in small communities, and as in all of his previous work, met wonderful dedicated people and established lasting Friendships and respect everywhere.
Throughout his working life John participated on many Boards and Committees focusing on community outreach, and has helped develop programs such as Out Of The Cold, Street Haven for battered women and Christie Gardens, and has worked to encourage interfaith ministry. His robust leadership has been recognized and honoured in many ways including the 125th Anniversary Medal of Canada Member and former Chaplain, Order of Saint John Ambulance, Serving Brother - Saint John of Jerusalem; Chaplaincy appointments to The Royal Society of Physicians and Surgeons, The Canadian Club of Toronto, The Benchers and The Order of St. Lazarus.
His personal passions are his family, his ministry, the theatre, ballet, opera, the family cottage at Oliphant and the Taize Retreat in France.
During his hospital confinement John and his family were enormously moved by those many Friends, acquaintances and co-workers old and new, who visited during his last days. Literally, they came by the hundreds from all spectrums of society to reminisce, renew Friendships and offer their love and support. Nothing could have made more visible the lasting impact John had on so many lives.
We will always be grateful for the kindness and incredible care given to John and his family by all the caregivers in the Palliative Care Unit at St. Michael's Hospital.
In lieu of flowers, please join John in his living legacy for theological education through his work at the Anglican Foundation of Canada (80 Hayden Street, Toronto, M4Y 3G2), or to the charity of your choice.
Visitation will be at the Morley Bedford Funeral Home, 159 Eglinton Ave. W., Toronto, between Yonge and Avenue Rd., 1: 00 to 4:00 p.m. and 7: 00 to 9:00 p.m. Friday, August 5th.
The funeral will be held at St. James Cathedral, King St. E. at Church Street, at 11: 00 a.m. Saturday, August 6th. A service preceding interment in Woodland Cemetery will be held in Kitchener at the Church of Saint John The Evangelist, Water Street, north of King Street, on Monday, August 8 at 11: 30 a.m. Reception at 10:30 a.m. in the Church Hall.
