HEARNDEN, Kenneth William
Professor Emeritus, Lakehead University, Registered Professional Forester
Died peacefully in the Norfolk Hospital Nursing Home on April 7 in Simcoe. He leaves behind his wife, Sheilagh McCULLAGH, sons James (Donna BURNSIDE), Stanley, John (Tammy QUIGLEY), as well as his two granddaughters, Colleen and Quinn. He is survived by his two sisters, Enid ROULEAU and Esme (Jim) HUNT. He was predeceased by his daughter Echo Jean. Ken was born in Toronto on May 11, 1923. He attended Parkdale Collegiate Institute and finished grade 13 with first class honours. Ken graduated with a Bachelor of Science of Forestry Degree in 1946 with first class honours from Toronto University. He began his career working briefly as a Canadian Government Dominion Forest Service researcher in Sault Ste. Marie. He left this position in the same year, 1946, to join Abitibi Paper Company at its Lakehead Woodlands Division. He became a Divisional Forester and played a role in planning and managing the company's operations in northwestern Ontario. Ken left Abitibi in 1969 to join Lakehead University's School of Forestry as an associate professor. In 1971, he became the Director and later Chairman of the school. The school grew considerably during his 9 years of leadership. Ken went on to become the Dean of Students at the University in 1980. He retired in 1985 and was appointed Professor Emeritus by Lakehead University's Board of Governors in 1986. A Scholarship in Forestry was created in his name by the University. Ken held very strong views on the need to reform industry wide forestry management practices. He was often quoted and interviewed by the news media as an authoritative voice for change. Some of his students were notable for carrying forward his concerns in their own careers. Ken was very involved in professional associations. He was President of the Canadian Institute of Forestry, 1964-65, President of the Ontario Professional Foresters Association, 1969-71 (later a Life Member), and Secretary-Treasurer, Association of University Forestry Schools of Canada, 1973-80. He also engaged in consulting. Most notably, Ken conducted the Ontario Independent Forest Audit, 1991-1992, for the Ontario Minister of Natural Resources, and the Report on Environmental Progress in Forestry Operations in Ontario, 1987, a survey and report for the "Forests Forever" consortium, which included the Federation of Ontario Naturalists, Canadian Environmental Law Association and others. He consulted and reported on Canadian Indian Reserves forestry issues for the federal Department of Indian and Northern Affairs. Ken had a very strong sense of civic responsibility and volunteered for many boards, in both Thunder Bay, and then in southwestern Ontario after his retirement. In Thunder Bay, his volunteer activities included being a member of the North Western Ontario Commission on Employment, 1960-62, a member of the former city of Port Arthur Board of Park Management, 1966-68 and Chairman of the same city's Building Committee, 1966-67. He was Chairman of the Lakehead Region Conservation Authority, 1968-73. As well, he was a member of the Lakehead Planning Board, 1969-1970 and Vice-President of the Canadian Club of Thunder Bay, 1975-77, and President, 1978-79. Ken purchased a sector of land in the Township of Shuniah in the 1970s for family recreational use. This led to his becoming a member of the township's Committee of Adjustment, 1972-75 and Chairman, 1975, of the Planning Board, 1978 and then Vice-Chairman, 1981-1983. Ken, and his wife Sheilagh, purchased a home in Normandale, a small hamlet by Lake Erie, near Port Dover and Simcoe, Ontario. Once again, Ken found himself active in the community. He was a member of the Township of Delhi Local Architectural Conservation Advisory Committee, 1986 and Chairman, 1988-90, and a member of the Haldimand-Norfolk District Health Council starting in 1990, and Chairman between 1993 and 95. He acted as Treasurer for the Canadian Mental Health Association, Haldimand Norfolk Branch in 1992, and was Vice President in 1995. He was a member of the Board of Directors of the Long Point World Biosphere Reserve in 1993. Ken was a dedicated 50-year member of the Masonic Lodge. He first joined in 1956, going on to become a Past Master of Connaught Lodge in Thunder Bay, the President of Thunder Bay Temple Buildings Ltd (1974-77), and was a Grand Stewart of the Grand Lodge in Ontario in 1974. He joined the Vittoria and Norfolk Lodges after he moved to Normandale. Ken was a member of the Scottish Rite, in which he was appointed an Honorary Inspector-General, 33 Degree. There will be no memorial service in accordance with Ken's wishes. Please remember him in anyway appropriate to your relationship with him. If you wish, plant a tree in memory of him.

Fred BURR, Educator And Politician (1911-2006)
Pioneer environmentalist who was a perennial also-ran in Ontario politics got things done when he was finally elected
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Toronto -- Fred BURR was never one to merely sit on the backbenches. He made a point of speaking up more often than not on issues that were dear to him. Question Period was his time to prod and probe. And almost always, he expressed his views in a non-partisan manner. He didn't fit the mould of an argumentative socialist. Whether it was environmental issues, solar energy or mandatory seat belts, Mr. BURR made the Ontario legislature sit up and take notice.
Mr. BURR graduated from London Central Collegiate Institute in London, Ontario, in 1928 and then from the University of Western Ontario in 1932 in classics. After working for one year at Milverton Continuation School in Milverton, Ontario, he taught Latin and Greek at Walkerville Collegiate Institute in Walkerville, Ontario, for 34 years. Somehow, he found time to serve three years as a utilities commissioner in Windsor, Ontario, the third year as chairman from 1965-1967.
As a young man who had experienced the Depression, he also developed an intense interest in politics. "He was one of the those students who wanted to change the world and save the world," his daughter Sheila said.
Mr. BURR joined the Co-Operative Commonwealth Federation Party, the forerunner of the New Democratic Party during the Depression and often recruited members and money for the organization while teaching 10 lessons a day. Mr. BURR first ran for election in 1945 and tried five more times in either federal or provincial races but he was successful. Finally, in 1967, he agreed to run for the New Democratic Party in Sandwich-Riverdale (later Windsor-Riverdale) after someone backed out. He won by 799 votes in a three-way race. He won by 10,000 the next time.
"He was a thoughtful person, largely unflappable," recalled Stephen LEWIS, the New Democratic Party leader during much of the time Mr. BURR was an member of provincial parliament. "He was deeply interested in his issues. He was never nasty. Nothing was done in malice."
Because of those virtues, opposition members of provincial parliament and ministers grudgingly referred to the "member of Sandwich-Riverdale" in response to his persistent questions and open letters that exposed such environmental hazards as mercury levels in the St. Clair River. In fact, Mr. BURR is credited for helping get the Ontario government to establish an environment ministry in 1975.
"I don't believe in asking questions just to get publicity," Mr. BURR told The Globe and Mail in 1974. "The question should have some potential for correcting a situation or improving a situation or preventing a situation. A question in the house should have some social value, rather than a political or partisan motivation."
Over the years, Mr. BURR campaigned for mandatory seat belts in cars and for designated non-smoking areas. He also had a hand in a provincial organ-donor program. "He helped get the legislation going for organ-and-tissue donors but only now are people thinking of what they should do with their organs after death," Mr. LEWIS said. "Fred was away ahead of his time with his private member's resolutions,"
In 1974, one of his questions in the legislature went like this: "Why aren't we spending at least a small fraction of the enormous outlays on oil and gas for research into ways to use solar energy?" Then he would follow up with a view on the matter: "There's no fuel bill from the sun and we won't run out of it either."
Together with Fred YOUNG, a Toronto member of provincial parliament, Mr. BURR led the Non-Smoker's Rights movement. They opened the campaign at a Toronto restaurant which agreed to ban smoking for one night to publicize the event. A man who never smoked or had a drink in his life because his mother had once warned him of their evils, he is believed to be the first person to give a speech in the legislature on the dangers of second-hand smoke.
"Smoking is the most intense form of air pollution," he told the legislature and moved that a clean-air environment be preserved during committee hearings. When he saw environment minister William NEWMAN reaching for his cigarettes, Mr. BURR would say, "Cadmium in the lungs, liver and kidneys of smokers is 15.8 milligrams and of non-smokers 6.63. I thought you would like to know that, Mr. Minister."
Mr. BURR also helped changed the inequity that teachers faced if they happened to be married to another teacher and their spouse died. Until he intervened, the surviving spouse had been unable to claim for half of their partner's pension, as others could.
In his early years, Mr. BURR was stricken with rheumatic fever and diagnosed with a heart murmur. His doctor told him that if he would take very good care of himself, he might live to be 64. He took heed.
Fred BURR was born February 26, 1911, in London, Ontario He died January 17, 2006, in Kincardine, Ontario of natural causes. He was 94. He is survived by his daughters Maureen and Sheila. He was predeceased by his wife Dorothy and son David.

BURR, Frederick Arthur
94 years. Born on February 26, 1911, Fred passed away peacefully, at home, on January 17, 2006 in Kincardine, Ontario. Predeceased by his best friend and loving wife of 62 years Dorothy (2000). Loving father to Maureen (Gerald SHIPPE) in Flat Rock, Michigan, Sheila of Kincardine and the late David (2000). Much loved granddad of Kathryn, Heather, Ian, Shawn, Moira, Nyree, Daniel, Laura, Cheryl, Colleen and Bruce.

Only brother of the late Stanley of Toronto. Dearly missed by several nieces and nephews. Foster father to Dan STAPLEY of California. Special friend to Marjorie BIEMAN, Bob, Lori, and Jessica BALE of Kincardine. Fred was a respected teacher at Walkerville Collegiate Institute from 1934 until 1968. He was the New Democratic Party Member of Provincial Parliament for Sandwich/Riverside and Windsor/Riverside from 1967 to 1977. He helped create legislation to establish an organ and tissue donor program, mandatory seat belts, and designated non-smoking areas. He advocated the use of wind, solar, and wave energy. When the Ontario Ministry of the Environment was established in 1975 its first Minister, the Hon. George Kerr, attributed its creation to the 'member for Sandwich-Riverside' because of his persistent question period campaign and open letters exposing such environmental hazards as mercury from the St. Clair River at Sarnia, and emphasizing the need for immediate corrective action. Cremation has taken place. Visiting will be held at Emmanuel United Church, 1728 Lincoln Road on Saturday, January 21, 2006 from 12: 00 p.m. until time of the Memorial Service at 2:00 p.m. Refreshments in the church hall following the service.

Hurt on picket line, college prof dies
By Canadian Press, Sun., March 26, 2006
Toronto -- A 62-year-old teacher injured in a collision on a picket line outside a Toronto college has died in hospital.
John STAMMERS, a professor of accounting at Centennial College, was involved with a car while on picket duty March 20.
"All of us at Centennial are devastated by this news," said Eileen BURROWS, president of Ontario Public Service Employees Union Local 558.
"John was a wonderful colleague," BURROWS said. "He was very popular with students. He was always patient. He always gave them all his time and attention. And he always took an interest in making the college work better for students."
Police said no charges are pending in the accident.
Police came to that conclusion after reviewing tapes from surveillance cameras in the area.
The incident occurred days before striking teachers and college officials agreed to arbitration to settle their contract.

THORNTON, Hugh Richard
Loving and adored father, kind and devoted husband to Bardie, Hugh passed away peacefully at home surrounded by the love of his family on October 25, 2006 after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. Born on February 4, 1929, in Woodstock, Ontario, to Jessie Robertson and Percy Sanford THORNTON, he was the youngest of eight children. Love and appreciation of music and fine art were always encouraged in the household by his mother, an accomplished pianist, and at an early age Hugh began to show great promise in drawing, illustrating and painting. He loved to talk about his days growing up in a large family where late-night chats would turn into early morning discussions of philosophy, science, the arts, and politics. The eight children loved to play pranks on each other, build water-glass orchestras and go-carts, read together and play music. Being in a large family he learned to assume responsibility early, and at age 11, he worked as a parcel boy at Loblaws in order to buy his first bike while later he took on summer jobs delivering ice and bread. The family moved to Toronto in 1938 to the High Park area where Hugh attended Keele St. Elementary School and Humberside Collegiate. At school he excelled in art, music, and literature. He met the love of his life, Barbara BRIGHAM, when she was 15 and he 16, and four years later, they were married while Hugh was attending the Ontario College of Art in the fine art program. He switched into the commercial program when he realized he would need to be able to support a family. During college, Hugh worked steady nights at Goodyear and Stelco, paying for all of his tuition. He won two scholarships and a bursary before he graduated in 1951 and continued to work at Goodyear upon graduation. Subsequently he was employed at Rabjohn Illustrators and after 1 year there, he went to Avro Aircraft where he quickly rose to department head. In 1955, after 3 years of top-secret illustration on the Arrow aircraft program, Hugh left to start his business in partnership as Industrial Art and Publicity Associates which subsequently became Thornton Hall Limited. As an employer, he was very fair and many times in the early days had to finance the payroll unbeknownst to his employees. Usually Hugh would be the last one to close the door, well into the early morning hours, as he built a successful career as illustrator, photographer, artist, copywriter, designer, and typographer. He was a rare one-stop talent that many envied and yet he was the most unassuming man to all who knew him. During the rare moments when he would take time for himself, he would relax with reading or playing Mendelssohn, Chopin, Beethoven and Bach piano pieces. Hugh and Bardie had to be thrifty in the early years, seldom living beyond their means, but still managing to always throw great parties with their many Friends and relatives. The door was always open at the Thornton household, laughter abounded, and visiting out-of-town relatives were never expected to stay in a hotel. In 1960, they bought a cottage on Buckhorn Lake and many happy weekends were spent fishing, water-skiing and boating. After Buckhorn was sold, they bought a cottage on Boshkung Lake north of Minden, Ontario, where Hugh loved to walk in the country with his artist's pad and camera in hand, creating ideas and sketches for some his most beautifully realized landscape paintings. Hugh provided a wonderful home in Don Mills for his wife and children, and loved to go on vacation with their Friends to sunny climes during the winters. He and Bardie instilled in their children strong family values of honesty, integrity, humility, and grace. Hugh was delighted to engage in conversation with his children and extended family and to be taken to task by his kids in discussions on politics or philosophy. The bantering and humour that went on around the table, even right up until the days before his passing, will be remembered and cherished by them forever. He was very proud of his children and their spouses and his adored grandchildren. Hugh was most proud of his accomplishments that occurred in his post-retirement years when he returned to painting. His many beautiful works of art adorn the halls of the family home, and the homes of Friends. He was eternally grateful to the Minden Hills Cultural Centre where his works were regularly shown each summer at the Agnes Jamieson Gallery and where, just in October, he was awarded 1st place in the People's Choice Award at the Members Show. He leaves his beloved wife of 56 years, Barbara BRIGHAM, and their loving children David LIVINGSTONE (Paula ZINOVICH) of Victoria, British Columbia, Gerry THORNTON (Stephen MOORE) of Toronto; and Andrew THORNTON (Sandra REYNOLDS) of Barrie, Ontario. Left to grieve for their adored Grandpa are Colin, Raeanne and Richard MOORE, and Jesse and Emma LIVINGSTONE. Hugh was predeceased by all seven of his siblings: Philip, Margaret (Bud BURROWS,) Bob (Phyllis, Helen,) Marion (Frank KENNEDY), Don (Mimi); Anne (Vince RUSSO), and Gerry. He was a wonderful uncle to Doctor Dan THORNTON (Donna,) Carol PAGNACCO (Ernie), Brian KENNEDY (Katie), Keith KENNEDY (Joan), Gail WILLIAMS (Ken,) Linda CLARY, the late Ted THORNTON, Andrea THORNTON, Philip RUSSO (Mary), Vicki BENOIT (Jerry), Eric Russo, Dianne THORNTON (Mark RECZKIEWICZ), Ian THORNTON (Lisa McLAUGHLIN) and Rob THORNTON. He is survived by his sisters-in-law Hilde THORNTON of Toronto (Dr. Harry HURWITZ,) Leonore THORNTON of Kingston, Jean CAWLEY of Vernon, British Columbia and children Tom, Cathy, and Joy Frances BRIGHAM (John DAVIES) of Victoria and children Becky, Tony, Judy, and Tim; along with brothers-in-law Joe BRIGHAM (Mary) of New Bern and son Phil; and Bill BRIGHAM (Pearl) of Mount Hope and children Cathy, Ruth, and Terry. He is lovingly remembered by dear cousins Kirk and Mary THORNTON of Orillia and Marilyn, Andrea, and Chrissie LEMIEUX of Toronto. He leaves many grand nieces and nephews and a great-grand niece. Deeply saddened are Friends from high school days, business and the art world, the cottages at Buckhorn and Boshkung Lakes, Don Mills and Aurora neighbours, as well as the many caregivers whose hearts were touched by his incredible courage and ceaseless wit and sense of humour. Special thanks goes to our primary care day nurse, Melissa, and primary care night nurse, Dan, our primary support worker, Jacquie, and most especially the Dies family, Bill, Joan, June, Rob, Paul, and Joanne for their generosity of spirit, Friendship, time, love, and personal care for Dad during this difficult time. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Southlake Regional Health Centre Foundation (Cancer Program) would be appreciated. Address: 615 Davis Dr., Suite 304, Newmarket, Ontario. L3Y 2R2. Alternatively, donations may be made to the Hugh Thornton Award. This has been established by the Minden Hills Cultural Centre to be given to a special Grade 8 student at Archie Stouffer Elementary School in Minden who has shown an interest and/or potential in the arts. The address is: Hugh Thornton Award, c/o Dianne GRAHAM, Agnes Jamieson Gallery, 176 Bobcaygeon Road, Minden, Ontario. K0M 2K0 Cremation has taken place. A public memorial service will be held on Sunday, November 19, at Trinity Anglican Church, 79 Victoria St. in Aurora, Ontario at 2 p.m.
