Keith YATES, 78; University of Toronto prof
By Nick KYONKA, Staff Reporter
After a successful career as a chemistry professor at the University of Toronto, few would argue that Keith YATES wasn't an expert on molecules.
But to those who knew him best, YATES was a man of many passions including sports, politics, sociology and even naval warfare, a subject he wrote two books about after his retirement.
"He knew everything about everything," says daughter Nicola FILLIER, of her father who died December 2 after a heart attack. "He was like a walking encyclopedia."
Sports, politics, warfare and -- of course -- science, were some of his interests, she says, but when it came to reading, just about anything would do.
"He forever read books. There was nothing he didn't like," she says.
As she was growing up, FILLIER says, her father's deep knowledge of the world helped to push her to learn more herself.
"He was funny. He was intelligent. He was great with my kids," she says.
Born in the north of England on October 22, 1928, YATES was raised in Blackpool. In 1946, he began a two-year conscription in Britain's Royal Navy.
In 1948, as he approached the end of his naval requirements, he received a letter from his parents informing him they had moved to British Columbia, and that he was welcome to join them. He did.
For the next few years, YATES worked blue-collar jobs for Coca-Cola and a local electrical company, but didn't pursue an academic career. It wasn't until 1953 that he started to move down that road, with help from his new wife, June CHARTER.
"My mom met him when he was nothing," FILLIER notes, saying they met on a blind date set up by Friends. "She chose him because she saw something ambitious or something in his character that she knew would get him somewhere in life."
In the following years, CHARTER would bring home the couple's only source of income as a teacher while YATES worked toward a bachelor's degree and a medical science degree at the University of British Columbia, and then a PhD at Oxford University in England.
In 1968, YATES began his career in physical organic chemistry as a professor at UofT. A short six years later, he was chairman of the the department.
Bob McCLELLAND, one of YATES' students and then a fellow faculty member, said: "He was sort of my model as a supervisor. He let students get on with their thing and he didn't bother you too much, but he was always there to help you."
As a physical organic chemist, YATES studied the reasons molecules responded to each other in the way that they did. Considered an authority in the field, YATES wrote more than 150 articles and other published works. Perhaps his best known, a 1978 book entitled Huckel Molecular Orbital Theory, discussed an alternative theory to predict where an electron could be found in certain molecules. Acclaimed by his peers, McCLELLAND says the book is still used as a textbook in some universities.
YATES was given a prestigious award by the Chemical Institute of Canada in 1991. After retiring that same year, YATES moved back to British Columbia with his wife, devoting his time to writing a pair of books on naval history and running the local branch of the Royal Canadian Legion.
"He went to every Legion function and he sat in a little trailer and he would flip hamburgers and joke with everybody as they came by," FILLIER says. "He would say to them, 'Do you want your buns toasted?' and as soon as they'd say yes, he'd say 'Yeah? Come on and get up here on the grill.'"
YATES leaves his wife of 53 years, as well as three daughters and four grandchildren. A funeral was held December 10 in B.C.

HEASLIP, William Arthurs, C.M., LL.D. (Hon.)
(July 5, 1927-March 3, 2006)
78, died suddenly of a cerebral hemorrhage at Sarasota Memorial Hospital, Florida, on March 3, 2006. Adored husband of Nona MacDONALD, he is the cherished brother of Betty DREW- BROOK (Bob) of Qualicum Beach, British Columbia. He was predeceased by his two other sisters, Alice RADFORD (Paul) and Doris MORRIS (Bert.) He is uncle of Bruce RADFORD (Rosemary), Brenda Radford MILLION (Rob) the MORRIS children - Debra, Lee, Sheri, Bob, Bill and Brad - and of the Drew-Brooks - Alan, Neil and Paul. He and the late Richard CHATER co-founded one of Canada's largest retail clothing conglomerates, Grafton Group Ltd. Bill retired as Chief Executive Officer and Chairman in 1992. He was appointed a Member of the Order of Canada and received an Honorary Doctorate from St. Francis Xavier University, Nova Scotia. His interest in education led him to create undergraduate ongoing scholarships for the following universities: Toronto, York, Western Ontario, Waterloo, Guelph, Prince Edward Island, Memorial, Manitoba and British Columbia. His many grand-nieces and grand-nephews will remember him for his financial assistance in achieving their higher education goals. At the University of Toronto, he established the Nona Macdonald Visitors Centre and the Macdonald Heaslip Walkway at Hart House Theater. At Ryerson University, Heaslip House for Continuing Education opened recently as did The Macdonald Heaslip Theatre at Sheridan Institute, Oakville. Other significant gifts have been made to Shaw Festival, Soulpepper Theatre, Toronto Symphony, Canadian Opera Company, Art Gallery of Ontario, Design Centre and Banff Centre for the Arts. He was a dedicated fundraiser and board member of Care Canada and Canadian Liver Foundation. He made major gifts to United Way, Rotary Club and Hincks Institute. Hospitals that benefitted from his giving include: Sunnybrook, Women's College, St. Michael's and Toronto General. An avid golfer, he held club memberships at Rosedale, Toronto Hunt; and in Florida at The Oaks he scored a 77, one-less-his-age, this January. A skilled fly fisherman, he belonged to Ristigouche Salmon Club, New Brunswick, and to the Caledon Mountain Trout Club, Ontario. Other recreational clubs were Tadenac in Georgian Bay and Griffiths Island. Two highlights of a favourite sport, Ballooning, were soaring over The Alps and participating in the 200th Anniversary of Ballooning, starting from Place de la Concorde, Paris. His love of wine was enjoyed with the members of The Tastevin des Chevaliers and The Commanderie de Bordeaux societies. In the 1820's, the Heaslips immigrated to Ontario from County Wexford, Ireland. This Irish background may account for his convivial and generous nature. Unfortunately, the 'luck of the Irish' ran out when heart disease, prevalent in the family, became his problem in later years. Thanks to superb surgery, he survived two by-pass operations at Toronto General Hospital where he has been a decade-long patient of Dr. Douglas WIGLE, his friend and cardiologist. Stricken suddenly at his Florida residence, he succumbed to a stroke. An organ donor at his death, he gave the ultimate gift - his liver so befitting a benefactor of the Canadian Liver Foundation. Bill HEASLIP will be remembered always, by his wide-ranging coterie of loyal Friends; by George and Joan REYNOLDS, by Carmelita and Danny ALCALA and by his wife's family, the Macdonald clan. Family and Friends are invited to celebrate his life on Monday, May 8, 2006 at Rosedale Golf Club, Toronto from 5: 30 to 8:00 p.m. If desired, a charitable donation may be made to any of the above-mentioned universities or to Theatre Museum Canada, 77 Bloor St. West, Ste. 1903, Toronto, Ontario M5S 1M2.

Bill HEASLIP, Retailer: (1927-2006)
He went from running a Toronto hardware store to owning one of Canada's largest men's clothing outlets, then lost it in one of the first big retail bankruptcies of the 1990s
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Toronto -- When Bill HEASLIP was 33, he was a co-owner of a big hardware store in downtown Toronto and reasonably happy, but he still yearned for a bigger piece of Canada's retail rainbow.
Mr. HEASLIP and Richard CHATER, a fellow partner at the store, sought to buy into something bigger. High on their priority list was a public company that was listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange. The savvy pair zeroed in on Grafton Group Ltd., a family-owned chain of 11 men's and women's clothing stores whose roots went back to 1853, making it the second-oldest retail chain in Canada behind Hudson's Bay Co.
In 1961, the two Friends made the plunge. Little did they know they would become multi-millionaires.
Bill HEASLIP grew up in the west end of Toronto and attended Runnymede public school and Humberside Collegiate Institute. His family could not afford to send him to university, so he went to work for his father, who sold advertising for the agriculture-oriented trade paper Canadian Countryman.
He did not stay long. By 1946, he had found a job at White's, a wholesale-retail hardware operation owned by the Chater family. Later, Mr. HEASLIP and Mr. CHATER assumed control and eventually decided to get into retail clothing. Their timing was perfect.
Grafton's middle-of-the-line, moderately priced clothing stores were in vogue across the country. Over time, the Jack Fraser, George Richards and Elks men's banners were added, along with Maher Shoes, Donita women's wear shops and the U.S.-based Seiferts chain of 200 stores.
But perhaps the most appealing of any acquisition Mr. HEASLIP and Mr. CHATER concocted came in 1967 when they obtained the licence to manage clothing for F.W. Woolworth's Woolco stores across Canada. It was a gold-mine contract that they would hold for close to 25 years. The pair sat back and watched the money roll in.
"That deal with Woolworth was quickly lucrative. It was something we tried to keep well hidden," said George REYNOLDS, who was Grafton's chief financial officer for 30 years.
Eventually, the Grafton empire grew from 11 stores to a staggering 1,100. Mr. CHATER was the company's brain trust and Chief Executive Officer, and Mr. HEASLIP served as senior vice-president. In 1982, Mr. CHATER died and Mr. HEASLIP became controlling shareholder Mr. REYNOLDS remained as Chief Financial Officer.
"Not only was Bill an intellectual with great business sense, but his greatest virtue was patience and he was a very successful Chief Executive Officer for that reason," said John McDONALD, a former board member whose family controls the Black and McDonald electrical and mechanical engineering empire.
By the late 1980s, Grafton was still holding its own in the clothing business but soon became a victim of a failing retail market that later claimed Simpsons and then the Eaton chain. First to go was the Woolco chain. In 1991, Woolworth decided not to renew its contract with Grafton, dealing a big blow to the company.
"The non-renewal was preparation for Wal-Mart buying the [144] Woolco stores," Mr. REYNOLDS said. "Too many of the stores weren't profitable."
In December of 1991, Grafton stunned Bay Street by filing for bankruptcy protection. The banks stepped in and, within a few months, the chain was taken over by a group headed by Glenn STONEHOUSE, a Grafton executive vice-president who assumed full control in 1994. Today, the company is called Grafton-Fraser and boasts about 180 stores, including 115 Tip Top Tailors outlets and 25 outlets of the George Richards tall-men brand.
After the bankruptcy, Mr. HEASLIP turned to philanthropy. Over the years, he helped support theatre groups, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Canadian Opera Company, Art Gallery of Ontario, Care Canada, the Canadian Liver Foundation and a number of hospitals. Because he never went to university, he established scholarships at 10 different universities. In 1999, he was granted the Order of Canada and given an honorary doctorate by St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, N.S.
Early retirement also gave him more time to enjoy a late-in-life marriage. A bachelor until 56, he wed Nona MacDONALD, director of public relations for the University of Toronto. She soon discovered he loved to cook. "I didn't cook much and I knew he loved to cook, so, one day, we were talking about going on vacation and I told him to take me some place where I had never been before and he jokingly said, 'That's easy, let's go to the kitchen.'"
Bill HEASLIP was born on July 5, 1927, in Toronto. He died on March 3, 2006, in Sarasota, Florida, of a stroke. He is survived by his wife, Nona, and sister Betty. He was predeceased by his parents and sisters Alice and Doris.
