BECVAR, Milan
Age 78, passed away on the morning of June 6, 2005 almost twelve years after his beloved wife, Marie STOKLASEK. He is deeply missed by his son Milan BECVAR, brother Vaclav BECVAR, granddaughter Amber BECVAR and all those who knew him. He is forgotten by none. Born on March 1, 1927 in Pilsen to Vaclav and Alzbeta (THYN) BECVAR, Milan BECVAR moved with his family to Prague and excelled in school. Unfortunately his higher education was cut short by the Fascist occupation. A veteran of the Resistance, Milan BECVAR risked his life with his fellow patriots to fight for freedom and survived forced labour deportation at the age of 17 by the Nazis. Milan escaped and made his way back to Prague with the liberating forces. After the war Milan BECVAR returned to school, married and had successful careers as a Technical and Vocational Teacher in the aeronautics industry and as an engineer in the beverage industry. Milan enjoyed music, nature, the sun, the ocean and all life had to give to the fullest. Milan BECVAR always remembered an experience from the end of the war in Europe in spring of 1945, where in the darkness of the night he found shelter beside an old stone wall in the suburb of a small city whose name he did not know. All night bullet tracers flared overhead but the thick stone wall held. Next day the first rays of the morning light lit up his hiding place and he saw he was near a huge wrought iron door in the stone wall which was the entrance to a cemetery. The shooting had stopped and as the sun rose, surprisingly the birds began to sing. It was then, in the increasing light that he was able to read the letters around the top of that door. "Visitor, Stop And Look At Us. We Were What You Are And You Will Be What We Are." As in nature, so in life, everything has to come to an end that started at the beginning.

COOPER, Patricia Lucy (née GILLGAN)
Aged 81, from complications related to diabetes, on May 5, 2005, at Stratford General Hospital. Pat was born July 29, 1923, in Belfast, Northern Ireland, raised in Scotland, and immigrated to Canada in her 30s. She served in the Women's Royal Naval Service in World War 2, married Don COOPER on June 1, 1946, and had one child, Pamela. In Canada, she lived in Toronto, Montréal, Calgary, Kitchener, and finally, Stratford. After life as a homemaker and mother, Pat rejoined the workforce, first with Eaton's, and then, more true to her passions, as a proofreader/editor with a legal publisher. Pat is survived and missed by her husband of nearly 59 years Don COOPER, her daughter Pamela DELANEY, her sister Betty IZZARD of Toronto, her brother Vic GILLGAN and his wife Brenda of Derbyshire, England, her five nieces including, Barbara IZZARD- THYNNE, her many nephews, including Danny IZZARD, and Stephen, Peter and Phillip Gillgan, her grand-dog, Fiona, and seven grand-cats. Friends Nadine RAYNER and Christine FORD have lost a mentor and woman they admired. She joins her beloved parents, Vic and Ida GILLGAN, and her "son" Dusty the cat; all three of these "spirits" spent her last month in the hospital with her, according to Pat herself. She is also reunited with Colleen CHAPLIN and Chris STOKES, who she has missed dearly. As per her request, there will be no funeral. Pat's body has been donated to the University of Toronto. She will be remembered as a classy lady, with a well-honed wit, and a deep love for animals and the English language; as Danny put it, "she was the coolest." We owe our deepest thanks to Dr. Laurel MOORE for the care, admiration and respect she gave to Pat. Donations in Pat's memory should be sent to Pet Trust, Ontario Veterinary College, University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario, Canada N1G 2W1. That would tickle her whiskers no end.
