KWICINSKI, Larry
On Saturday, February 18th, 2006, Larry KWICINSKI lost his 9 month battle with pancreatic cancer. Larry passed away peacefully at his home in Woodside, California. Larry was born in Welland, Canada on August 5th, 1948. Larry moved to Toronto when he was 18 years old and lived there for more than 25 years. Larry moved from Toronto to California in 1998 with his wife, Nanci CALDWELL and his daughter, Adriana. Larry retired from the software industry 3 years ago where he was the Chief Executive Officer of a company he founded - Sales Gorilla. Larry also had a distinguished career at General Electric and Hewlett Packard for 10 and 8 years respectively. Larry was a man who lived every aspect of his life to the fullest. Larry could light up a room just with his presence; he didn't need words - tall and very handsome, his face warm and welcoming, his smile wide and eyes sparkling. And as his daughter, Adriana says, his wink could light a whole town of people's hearts. Larry loved to laugh and had a great sense of humour. Larry was known for his love of playing - Adriana's Friends saw Larry as their friend. He not only joined the kids in play but he was the impetus for so much of their fun. Nothing made Larry happier than spending a day playing with Adriana and her Friends. Larry was a well educated man, a wise man, a life long learner. Larry's first degree was a degree in Electronics from Ryerson; while he was at Hewlett Packard he went back to York University and did his M.B.A.; and when Adriana was a baby, he went back to school part time to University of Waterloo and received his Masters in Environmental Studies. Larry loved to read and to learn and although he would share his wisdom he did not have a need to prove his wisdom. Larry loved nature and the outdoors - it was a passion that Larry shared with Adriana. Larry had travelled to the Canadian Arctic many times throughout his life and began sharing the Arctic with Adriana when she was in 5th grade. Larry and Adriana had 4 wonderful trips to the Arctic together - 3 in winter and 1 in summer. Larry also loved kayaking, snowshoeing, canoeing and in recent years went back to his Canadian roots by taking up ice hockey. Perhaps more than anything, what defined Larry were his values. Larry was an honest man. True to himself and true to others. He was a man of the highest integrity. Larry was a man that defined himself by who he was not by what he had. Larry touched so many lives in such a positive way and he will be greatly missed. He is survived by his loving wife Nanci, and his adoring daughter Adriana. He is also survived by his parents Betty and Chester KWICINSKI (Welland, Ontario;) and his brothers and sisters (all of Canada:) Betty Lou DIMATTIO; Barry KWICINSKI; Brenda MICHENER Randy KWICINSKI; Cindy BLANCHARD; Jerry KWICINSKI; his wife's parents: Bill and Fran CALDWELL (Brockville, Ontario;) brothers-and sisters-in-law (all of Canada:) Mike DIMATTIO; JoAnne KWICINSKI Art BLANCHARD; Carol CALDWELL; Michael and Judy CALDWELL; Susan CALDWELL and Mark EGIT; Terri and Paul JENKINSON; Patti CALDWELL. He is survived by many nieces and nephews that loved their uncle dearly: Beth, Michael, Alison, Jessica, Justin, Alexandria, Curtis, Evan, Jessica, Jacob, Jennifer, Patrick, Shaindel, Ruby, Megan, Jill, Sam, Lee and Sophie. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in Larry's name to PanCan (www.pancan.org) or the Canadian Wildlife Federation (1-800-563-9453 Ext. 211).

Ex-chief an innovator
By Amy LAZAR, Wednesday, July 19, 2006
In 1974, William (Bill) BLANCHE hired Orillia's first policewoman.
He also implemented new technology, successfully lobbied for a new police building and built partnerships between the force, the public and social-awareness clubs.
The city's former police chief, who died peacefully at Soldiers' Memorial Hospital on July 17, was forward-thinking and innovative, said longtime friend and colleague Don MILLER.
"I admired the man because of his honesty, his uprightness, and for what he gave to the country's military service," said Miller.
BLANCHE, a Second World War veteran, served with the Toronto Scottish regiment, Royal Canadian Armed Service Corps, from 1936-45. The longtime resident of Orillia held the position of police chief between 1971 and 1980.
Before he was chief, BLANCHE was promoted to staff sergeant, leaving a vacancy in the forensic identification department.
MILLER trained to take over for him, and they worked together until BLANCHE's retirement in 1980.
They stayed in touch, however, and both attended a police force reunion in June.
A funeral service will take place at Mundell Funeral Home on Friday at 11 a.m.
Members of Royal Canadian Legion Branch 34 will gather there for a service at 7 p.m.
Memorial donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Alzheimer Society.
