BLACKSTOCK o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2006-05-05 published
ROBERTS, William Hardy
By Roy MacSKIMMING, Page A26
Husband, father, bookseller, poet, gentleman. Born September 8, 1931, in Aberdeen, Scotland. Died November 9, 2005, in Burritt's Rapids, Ontario, of natural causes, aged 74.
Along with his deep knowledge and love of literature, Bill possessed a kindly charm and keen sensibility. He could read his customers a mile away. He'd emerge from the rear of the store, tall, elegant and bearded, and gently introduce them to just the authors they were looking for -- even when they hadn't yet realized it.
Bill raised Ottawa's literary standards. His clientele ran from John Diefenbaker and Lester Pearson to Pierre Trudeau and Ed Broadbent. When the Prime Minister's Office or the Department of Foreign Affairs needed a gift for a visiting V.I.P., they knew whom to call. And over the years, Bill mentored a new generation of booksellers.
Bill was a complex, multifaceted man: a very private person yet a loyal friend and boon companion; a businessman yet an accomplished poet. Growing up in wartime in the English industrial city of Leeds, he was an autodidact who immersed himself in books. His friend Gordon BULLOCK recalls Bill as a perfect gentleman, even as a teenager: "Dressing in tweeds, smoking a magnificent pipe, wearing a stylish hat, all of which gave him the air of a young academic."
Bill moved to London, where he reported for the Fish Fryers Gazette and frequented the theatre. A friend of his, a penniless young actor named Peter O'Toole, slept on his floor while seeking parts in the West End.
In search of better prospects, Bill emigrated to Canada in 1954 with Gordon BULLOCK, who would become publisher of the Hamilton Spectator. A few years later Bill was happily working at Leishman's. As Mr. BULLOCK puts it, "He'd travelled 3,000 miles to find his true home." Bill bought the business in 1961 in partnership with Peggy BLACKSTOCK, raised its stature, and moved the store uptown near Parliament Hill.
Farsighted and imaginative, Bill ROBERTS became a force for innovation and professionalism in the book trade. In 1972, he opened satellite stores in Ottawa and Victoria under the name Books Canada, selling exclusively Canadian titles. He was elected president of the Canadian Booksellers Association, fostered bookseller education, and promoted publisher-bookseller co-operation in bringing electronic commerce to the industry.
Although he was serious about business, Bill's first love was literature. Ottawa poet William HAWKINS recalls Bill approaching him after a reading to share his enthusiasms for Eliot and Auden. The two became Friends, and Bill shared his own poetry with Mr. HAWKINS, who was struck by its craft, wit and poignancy.
Another colleague, bookseller-turned-publisher Al CUMMINGS, became a close friend. He and Bill travelled widely together in search of history, art, good cigars and fine scotch. They marked the millennium by flying from New York to London on the Concorde, visiting galleries and theatres, and returning on the Queen Elizabeth II. Bill immortalized their adventures in a satirically nostalgic verse, Like-Minded Gents.
Bill enjoyed the tranquillity of life with his wife Carole and daughters Stephanie and Victoria in the small village of Burritt's Rapids near Ottawa. For some years after he sold Leishman's in 1992, he and Carole ran a lovely antiquarian bookshop in nearby Merrickville, but Bill's failing health eventually caused them to retire. One of his last and most moving poems begins: I hope the better part / Of who we are / May be remembered.
Writer Roy MacSKIMMING is a colleague and friend of Bill ROBERTS.

E., London, N6C 2V3, would be greatly appreciated. "It is not for the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows great devotions and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat." Theodore Roosevelt

SHORE, Patrice Michelle (October 17, 1953-march 8, 2006)
A woman with a crystal spirit and a fighter pilot's heart 'flew west' at 11: 50 a.m. P.S.T., Wednesday, March 8, 2006, at Peace Arch Hospital, White Rock, British Columbia. A winter storm battered the windows. The ancients believed when a great soul leaves the earth, the wind rages; the greater the soul, the greater the wind to carry them away. It physically pushed her Friends off the sidewalk ('That's Patrice going by.' they said.) Patrice leaves to grieve many Friends, her devoted husband, Wayne Ralph, and loving family, mother Anne SHORE, Surrey, brothers Mark (Lori,) in Whitehorse Yukon, and Robert (Teresa), Coquitlam, and sister Christine BLAGDON, New Westminster. She was predeceased in 1999 by her father, Hugo. She was a loved and admired aunt to her nieces and nephews, an inspirational godmother, and a brilliant mentor. This lovely woman was a huge intellectual and emotional force for good in many lives - an astonishing, unique model of unparalleled energy, courage, honesty, generosity and thoughtfulness. Born in Victoria, she attended Queen Elizabeth High School, Surrey, and received her B.A. from Simon Fraser University in 1976. She had a successful and distinguished career in real estate with Nu-West Development, Feedham Realty, Benchmark Realty, and Bay Realty. She also served as a director on the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board, and Board of Trustees, Peace Arch Hospital Society. With 20 years, firstly as a child, and later as an adult, living in the world of lymphatic cancer, she epitomized the virtue of positive thinking. She took comfort from the humanity of all her health care professionals, particularly Drs Grace Park, Paul Hoskins, Nicholas Voss and Derek Lowe. Her nursing and social services professionals adored her, wonderful women like Daphne Frost, Cathy Paul, Sarah Sample, Kaniza Ishmail, Lynne Charlesworth, Mary Scott, Janie Brown, Gilly Heaps and Barbara Morningstar, to name just a few. Also wonderful were the women of the Palliative Care unit in her last 40 hours. She insisted that any memorial not be a dirge orchestrated by strangers. She wanted her Friends and family to remember how adventurous and fun her life had been, and recall not only her virtues but also her foibles. To that end, we will gather at 2: 00 p.m., Saturday, April 8, at Victory Memorial Park, 14831 28th Ave, Surrey - 604-536-6522 www.victorymemorialpark.com Donations to Callanish Society, providing retreats and support programs for people living with cancer, 2277 West 10th Ave, Vancouver, British Columbia V6K 2J1 - 604-732-0633 - www.callanish.org or Union Gospel Mission, Box 2546, Vancouver, British Columbia V6B 3W8 - 604-253-3323 www.ugm.bc.ca
