Otto MERESZ
By Cecilia KUTAS and Betty LEVENTHAL, Monday, August 8, 2005, Page A14
Chemist, teacher, father. Born January 16, 1932, in Rimaszombat, Hungary. Died February 5, in Don Mills, Ontario, suddenly of a stroke, aged 73.
The last thing on the minds of Otto and Julianna MERESZ, graduating chemical engineers from the Technical University of Budapest in June 1956, was that they would be in a refugee camp in Austria by Christmas.
Raised in Brasov, Transylvania, during the turbulent years of the Second World War, Otto returned to Hungary in the harsh post-war Communist era to attend university. The uprising against the regime in October 1956 opened opportunities in the west, and with only the shirts on their backs and a first-class education in their heads, the young couple took their leave. The camp in Austria led to Scotland, then England. By 1965, Otto attained a PhD in sugar chemistry from Birkbeck College, University of London. Organic chemist Peter YATES brought him to the University of Toronto on a postdoc, where he became an assistant professor in the department of chemistry from 1967 to 1972. Here, his quick wit, connected examples, and caring attitude earned him a devoted student following. When he talked about it, even electron cloud distribution in substituted benzene rings made sense. His lectures were usually jammed to the rafters, but he always made time to talk to everyone and explained elusive concepts practically.
In research, he worked on developing insect pheromones to use as pesticides (very avant garde at the time). Otto was a personable, well-groomed man, but the aroma of the organic laboratory often followed him around, much like his enthusiastic students. One day, after a productive morning of lab work on insect pheromones he was astounded to find himself surrounded by a cloud of insects when he stepped outside. His chagrin quickly turned to amusement, as he realized that this was proof that his theory for pesticide alternatives worked!
During the energy crisis of the 1970s he looked for economical ways to recover fuel from oil sands. His concern for the environment led to a position as head of the organic trace contaminants section at the Ministry of the Environment in Toronto, where he formed part of Ontario's first line of defence in chemical emergencies.
Often representing the ministry at environmental hearings, Otto's knowledge of chemical interactions was used in successful litigation against polluters.
He linked science to common sense, by telling you that parts-per-million sensitivity in pollution detectors make them about as smart as the average person's nose. In fact, at the ministry, he was affectionately known as "The Nose" because he could sniff any problem area, name the likely contaminants with amazing accuracy, and make a very good guess about the processes causing the problem.
On retirement, he returned to the University of Toronto as an adjunct professor in chemical engineering. He could turn his skilled hands to the synthesis of almost any organic compound a colleague needed, and discussions with him often sparked novel research ideas.
He was very proud of his daughter Andrea, also an environmental scientist, and told stories of her wedding in her onion patch part of her sustainable farm enterprise. Of his wife he often said what an excellent chemist she was, better than he.
Otto combined humanistic elements, ecology, philosophy and an intelligent approach to a difficult subject to communicate it effectively. In developing non-toxic insect pheromones to use as pesticides and oil sands refining to combat the high cost of imported oil, he showed himself a visionary. The economies of his ideas may have been impractical in his time but they serve as his inspiration to others.
Cecilia was Otto's student; Betty his colleague.

BARNES, Maureen (née DICKSON/DIXON)
It is with great sadness that our family announce the passing of our dear and loving mother and grandmother. Maureen was called home to be with the Lord on March 15, 2005 at Country Terrace Nursing Home, Komoka, Ontario where she had been a resident for the past 4 months. Maureen was a resident of Delaware, Ontario for the past 8 years where she had lived with her daughter Patricia and son-in-law Robert (Musty) and her 5 grandchildren, Kim, Bob, Justin, Kevin and Maureen. She will be missed by her son Bill and his wife Carol and their daughters Alana and Dayna; her daughter Carol and her husband John YATES and their children Ryan and Catherine; her sister Anne VAN ULFT; godson Richard DUNN and nieces and nephews. Maureen was passionate about gardening and baseball. The fruit of her autumn plantings in the front garden always delighted the Musty neighbourhood with the daffodils and azaleas in early spring. Delaware baseball will truly feel her absence at the local baseball games as she was an avid supporter at her grandchildren's games from t-ball in 1990 right up to the Midget team games last summer. Maureen was Montreal, Quebec, the 5th of six children of William and Ellen Dixon. She married our father Michael BARNES (deceased September 1996) and raised her three children in Montreal. She worked part time in the telephone order department in Simpson Sears Co. in downtown Montreal. Maureen was a past parishioner of St. Aloysius Catholic Church in Montreal east. She moved from Montreal to London, Ontario in 1991 to be closer to her family. Visitation is arranged from 7-9 p.m. March 22, 2005 at the Elliott MaDill Funeral Home, Mount Brydges. A Funeral Mass will be conducted at 11 a.m. March 23, 2005 at Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church, 2452 Gideon Drive, Delaware, Ontario 519-652-3491. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Elliott Madill Funeral Home, 22424 Adelaide Road, Mount Brydges, 519-264-1100.
