SPERDAKOS, Angeline (a.k.a. Coula LUCAS)
Passed away peacefully on February 10, 2006. Born in Montreal on March 6, 1920, Coula was the beloved sister of Helen (Eleni) LIASKOS, Mariya CHRISTIDIS and the late Dean and George SPERDAKOS. She will be forever cherished by her adoring nieces Anastasia (Tassie) CAMERON and Diane GOUZOPOULOS, Paula and Sophia SPERDAKOS, Aurora, Ophelia, Thalia CHRISTIDIS and nephew Alexander CHRISIDIS. Coula was loved by her great-nieces and great-nephews who enjoyed her unique spirit and interest in them. She is also survived by her son George TRAKAS and granddaughter Maggie TRAKAS and nieces and nephew. Coula was a wonderful woman, who brought love and joy to anyone lucky enough to spend time with her. Her sister, Eleni, knew that better than anyone, and enjoyed a special relationship with her. Their bonds were not inspired by blood alone. They loved each other's company and were simply the best of Friends. They were devoted to each other always. People were easily touched by Coula's nurturing warmth, impeccable taste and fine beauty. Her cooking was delicious enough to feed the gods and she graciously and generously shared it with many. Her nature was to heal and love people whom she met. She was an attentive listener who offered guidance without judgment, commiserating with sorrows, diffusing anger and softening the blows of disappointments. Time spent with beautiful Coula inevitably left one bolstered with confidence to move forward. Students at McGill University still remember her kind and caring ways 30 years after she was a student advisor there. Those of us who loved her are blessed with incredible memories of time spent in her company. Coula, you will be remembered, missed and forever in our hearts.

Of Norwich, Ontario, at People Care, Tavistock on Thursday June 15, 2006, after a brief illness. Eula was in her 99th year and was born on the family farm at South Walsingham, Ontario on March 15, 1908. She is survived by her loving daughter Joan (HOBBIN) BISHOP and husband Robert of Woodstock; her dear granddaughter Pamela (BISHOP) CHRISTIE and husband Peter of London; and her cherished and loving great granddaughter Erin JOHNSON and husband David of London, England. Also survived by nephews Jim MERCHANT (Zora) of Sherwood Park, Alberta; Larry TAIT/TAITE/TATE (Lynn) of Woodstock; Brennan TAIT/TAITE/TATE of Beachville; niece Marion ANDERSON of Edmonton, Alberta, as well as several great nieces and nephews.

In approximately 1918, the family moved to Norwich and the five children of Henry and Ellena grew up at the Norwich Gore, attending the Gore Public School and the Gore United Church. Our Mother and Grandmother was active in the community and enjoyed being a member of the Norwich Historical Society and the Norwich United Church. Her other pursuits included decorating and quilting and in particular painting which she continued to do into her late nineties. She was extremely proud of and took an avid interest in our United Empire Loyalist ancestors (the McCalls of Norfolk County) and passed on a great deal of family history. Eula enjoyed life and was always happy, healthy and content. She was kind, generous and blessed with a wonderful sense of humour. Eula was dearly loved and will be greatly missed. The family feels blessed to have had her in our lives for so many years and we are so grateful for her love. Thank you Grandma.

Pat MARSDEN, Broadcaster: (1936-2006)
Canadian Football League play-by-play specialist and radio host lived life large. He stiffed a Nevada casino over a gambling debt, took a swing at his boss and was bailed out of jail by Brian MULRONEY
By James CHRISTIE with files from William HOUSTON, Page S9
It was part of Pat MARSDEN's profession, as a caller of football play-by-plays and a radio host, to be a storyteller. But the Ottawa-born broadcast star didn't just tell entertaining tales he often starred in them.
Citing his Irish heritage, Mr. MARSDEN was alternately provocative, funny, obstinate, sentimental, pugnacious and -- until he stopped imbibing in recent years -- always willing to buy an adversary a drink while he hammered away with his opinions. "He had to get out of here because he couldn't get a rum and coke," his wife, T.A. MARSDEN, told radio station The Fan 590 yesterday morning from Sunnybrook Hospital, minutes after his death.
An eight-year stint as co-host of The Fan morning show was the last stop in a career of more than four decades behind the microphone or in front of the camera. Mr. MARSDEN even parodied sports broadcasters as a television actor, sporting a slicked-down comb-over, a loud plaid jacket and talking in exaggerated tones as he interviewed calamity-prone stuntman Super Dave Osborne (a.k.a. Bob Einstein) in a 1992 series.
He is best known for his play-by-play coverage of the Canadian Football League telecasts and Grey Cup championships in the 1970s and 1980s. He also worked as host of the 1972 Canada-Soviet Union hockey summit series telecasts. His longest stint was 19 years with CTV's Toronto flagship station CFTO, where he had a reputation for marching to his own beat. In a 1986 Globe and Mail interview, Mr. MARSDEN said bluntly, "Nobody tells me what to do and nobody tells me what to say, on or off the air. I developed a thick skin a long time ago and I don't care how people would like me to act. I won't be dull and I'll always have self respect." He declared that he would always be himself.
"He did it his own way," said long-time colleague Fergie Olver, who knew Mr. MARSDEN could make connections at the high and low ends of the social scale. "He was the only guy who was thrown in jail in Regina on a Friday night, and then he went to Montreal where he was thrown in jail again, and [former prime minister] Brian MULRONEY bailed him out."
Indeed, when Mr. MARSDEN signed off for the last time in May of 2004, Mr. MULRONEY phoned the station from Europe to congratulate him on his career.
Pat MARSDEN was an Ottawa native who started a career in radio as director of CKOY. He went on to become the long-time sports director of CFTO, returning to radio at CFRB after a stormy exchange with CFTO news and public-affairs vice-president Ted STEUBING over a technical problem. Mr. MARSDEN reportedly lunged across Mr. STEUBING's desk to scuffle with the boss.
He also worked with Bill Watters on TSN's The Sports Page. "Whenever I was with him, it would be 30 seconds and I'd either be laughing at me or laughing at him, or with him," said Mr. Watters, who had seen the lighter side of the broadcaster.
After Mr. MARSDEN retired and moved to Florida, Fan 590 executives sought him out in 1994 to fight a desperate ratings battle for Toronto listeners. He'd been out of the market some eight years, but The Fan program director Nelson MILLMAN said the station had pursued him to gain credibility for a new format.
"We'd come through two seasons of labour stoppages in sports&hellip we were floundering. We had Bob McCOWN in the afternoons and we needed to fix the morning show. Pat gave us some stability in 1994 and 1995. He was the right guy in the right place at the right time. He was a character like no other and he represented sport in this town."
At The Fan, Mr. MARSDEN at first paired with the hip and younger John DERRINGER. Both men were from the right side of the political spectrum, both had ties to the United States and an antipathy for prime minister Jean Chrétien.
Yet their chemistry was not great. Mr. MARSDEN had come from an era of radio crooners and crop reports, while Mr. DERRINGER from a culture of rock radio. There was more dissonance than charm in their old-young mix and Mr. DERRINGER ultimately departed. He was replaced by Don LANDRY, another young foil for Mr. MARSDEN.
"Pat and Don were much more opposites politically and in outlook toward life," said Mr. MILLMAN. " That made for better chemistry than someone who often agreed with Pat's political outlook. When sparks fly, that's entertainment."
Mr. LANDRY's comedic aptitude lightened the mood and ratings began to climb for an odd couple that could laugh at each other and at themselves. "Half the people loved it, half asked me 'why do you pick on Pat so much, '? Mr. LANDRY said. "Good chemistry or bad chemistry is a question of taste, but he was loved. By now, he's probably found Pierre Trudeau and is bawling him out for what he did as prime minister."
That scenario would be a stretch of the imagination. Mr. MARSDEN and Mr. Trudeau wouldn't fit in each other's version of heaven. Hell, possibly.
"Nobody's perfect, but nobody wore his imperfection as well as Pat MARSDEN," Mr. DERRINGER said. "The smile, the laugh, the ability to keep things on an even keel was always an inspiration."
Mr. MARSDEN commuted from his Florida home for the first few years of his Fan 590 job, rooming in Toronto weekdays and flying home weekends to the United States, always returning with gripes about Canadian gasoline prices, the non-functioning escalators at Pearson Airport and former Mr. Chretien's lack of support for U. S foreign policy. Later, Mr. MARSDEN and his family eventually moved back to Toronto.
The station opted not to renew his contract in May 2004. Rogers Communications, which owns the station, had the option of picking up three more years on a five-year pact that has been paying him $300,000 annually, but declined. They paid him off with six months remaining in his 2004 contract and Pat MARSDEN didn't complain.
"Getting up at 4 o'clock is so tiring, you can't function properly. I'm not at all disappointed.
"If they don't want you, they don't want you. I'm finished with the business. It's like you don't matter any more. That's fine. No use worrying about it. You take what comes along in life.'"
Mr. MARSDEN lived life large, enjoyed a party, loved his rum and his outings to casinos. In 1981, he managed to borrow $30,000 (U.S.) from the owners of the casino at The Dunes Las Vegas hotel in Nevada and signed a series of markers when his money ran out. He then left three cheques, two of them postdated. Back in Toronto, he stopped payment on the latter pair. The casino owners took him to an Ontario District Court -- and lost. Judge James TROTTER said that Nevada's gambling laws and demand for payment were "unenforceable in Ontario," and that Mr. MARSDEN's cheques were an "illegal consideration" under Ontario's Gaming Act.
Gambler though he was, Mr. MARSDEN knew he had no chance of beating cancer. He was diagnosed after visiting his doctor about a pain in his lower back. Lung cancer was found and it had spread into his bones. He had been a smoker since a young child "but I have no regrets. I'm 69 and I've had a good life with lots of laughs and lots of Friends. Lots of great memories."
"I started smoking when I was four years old," he once said in an interview with The Globe and Mail's William HOUSON. " Somebody said to me, 'Christ, where the hell did you grow up, in Mississippi?' No, but I had an old uncle who thought it was hilarious, as he and his pals sat around the kitchen table having a beer, if I would come in and have a smoke with them. That's when I started. I never quit."
While in hospital, he received phone calls from generations of broadcast colleagues and sports reporters. He was visited by Leo Cahill (former Toronto Argonauts coach), and Scotty Bowman (retired National Hockey League coach) and by Brian KILREA, the long-time coach of the major-junior 67's hockey team in Ottawa, where Mr. MARSDEN grew up.
"The only thing I can say is, don't feel sorry for me," he said. "I've had a terrific life and a terrific wife and great children, and I'm delighted with the way my life has gone.
"I would have liked for it to have been a little longer, but, you know, you reap what you sow."
Pat MARSDEN was born in Ottawa, November 8, 1936, and died of lung cancer in Toronto yesterday. He leaves his wife, T.A., daughter Taylor, son Connor, and three grown children from his first marriage: Mike, Patti-Lee, and Ruth Mary.

CHRISTIE, Lindsay William "L.C."
By Charmian CHRISTIE, Page A24
Father, brother, stockbroker, uncle. Born December 22, 1930, in Guelph, Ontario Died December 19, 2005, in Richmond Hill, Ontario, of cancer, aged 74.
From an early age, Lindsay (L.C.) instilled trust with money. During the cash-strapped Depression, his mother assigned nine-year-old L.C., her second-born, to deliver cash payments to the doctor. Before he left school at 14, his teacher trusted him with depositing her paycheque. The leap to stockbroker seemed natural. At 16, L.C. moved to Toronto. With no formal education, L.C.'s natural intelligence and likable nature quickly advanced him from teletype operator at a brokerage firm to full-fledged stockbroker. From the 1960s to the 1980s, while other stockbrokers dealt with listed stocks, L.C. called the unlisted stocks in over-the-counter markets, keeping track of the constantly fluctuating prices in his head. He was his own ticker-tape machine. Many of his colleagues and clients called him "the best in the business," but we had no idea what that meant until he was honoured with ringing the opening bell at the new Toronto Stock Exchange in April, 2005. When L.C. died, Norstar Securities published a notice in The Globe and Mail and closed its doors for a day in respect for L.C.
While L.C. was meticulous and conscientious with other people's money, he was more laissez-faire with his own finances. After every April 30, he'd pick up the phone, and with no "Hello" or introduction, announce to his accountant's secretary, "Get ready&hellip I'm comin' in!" They didn't need to ask who was calling and greeted L.C. and his shoebox full of receipts with open arms.
For all that he was a big city man, family was important to him. For more than 30 years he hosted an annual family reunion at his home, serving up homemade sirloin burgers to his five brothers and their growing families. At Christmas, L.C. returned to Guelph to celebrate with his brother Gary's family. After dinner and a hefty helping of trifle, which he ate despite being "too full," L.C. would lie down in the middle of the living room and fall asleep while Gary read A Child's Christmas in Wales by Dylan Thomas, but not before he complained loudly with cries of "Not again!" or "Can't you find something else to read?" When Gary reached the line where the small boy asks, "Were there Uncles, like in our house?" we'd answer in unison, "There are always Uncles at Christmas!" and look at the snoring L.C.
L.C. also had a strong relationship with God, although he didn't go to church. For more than 50 years he played Handel's Messiah every Sunday morning. He didn't just listen; he participated, conducting the Hallelujah Chorus with kitchen utensils or a broken radio antenna. He took his Sunday ritual seriously and was often moved to tears by the music. More than once he claimed to have "missed his calling as a musical conductor."
In the end, L.C. died as he lived -- with determination and consideration of his family. When he realized his time was almost over, he asked to be moved to a hospice. When the ambulance arrived to take him to the hospice, the stairs were too steep for the attendants to take him headfirst, and L.C. got his final wish to leave his beloved home feet first, although not in the conventional sense. Once settled in his new room, he glanced around and with his customary wry humour gave his understated approval, "Not bad!"
Within an hour of being visited by all his brothers, L.C. conducted his last transaction. L.C. passed on in the presence of his only son, Ian. He allowed one witness to his peaceful passing, yet gave us all time to say good-bye. We can only hope that Dylan Thomas was right, "There are always Uncles."
Charmian CHRISTIE is L.C.'s niece.

Runner dies in marathon
By James CHRISTIE with a report from Omar EL AKKAD, Page A10
A 41-year-old Toronto runner collapsed near the end of the 2006 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon and died in hospital.
Martin POYSER fell to the pavement at Wellington and Bay Streets, 800 metres from the finish line of the 41.195-kilometre course.
"He was given cardio-pulmonary resuscitation within a minute at the scene and Emergency Medical Services paramedic service were there within three minutes to take him to Mount Sinai Hospital," said race general manager Dana ALLEN of Toronto. "They worked on him for about an hour in hospital, but he did not survive."
Mr. POYSER is the first fatality in the seven-year history of the event. Last October a 36-year-old Oakville man died after running a half-marathon in the Toronto Marathon.
"We send our condolences to Martin's family, Friends and fans," said Alan BROOKES, the race director. "Martin will be remembered as a wonderful spirit, with a tremendous passion for running."
Relatives at Mr. POYSER's house yesterday refused to speak to a reporter. One family member, contacted yesterday evening, said he was still on the phone with a doctor regarding what happened.

Coach was a University of Toronto mainstay
By James CHRISTIE, Page S8
Some coaches keep their players in a state of anxiety, wondering whether they will play or not.
John McMANUS was more apt to keep them in stitches with his wit.
The coach of the University Toronto Varsity Blues basketball team for almost three decades died on Wednesday of cancer in North York General Hospital. He was 88.
"He loved the game with a passion," said Michael KATZ, the present-day heir to the Varsity Blues basketball bench. "He was still playing pick-up basketball in his 50s."
KATZ played for McMANUS from 1968 to 1971 and knew the value of the coach's humour first-hand.
"The old Hart House bandbox was supposed to be our home court, but one year our home games were played at York University because the old building was virtually condemned," KATZ said. "We could have been grim, but he made up for it with his sense of humour."
Born in Milestone, Saskatchewan., in 1918, McMANUS was raised in Winnipeg, where he excelled in baseball, basketball and track and field.
He joined the Royal Canadian Air Force at the outbreak of the Second World War and spent 1939 to 1942 at various fighter command bases in England.
After the war, McMANUS attended University of Toronto to study physical education. Upon graduation in 1950, he coached the Acadia Axemen basketball team in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, for two seasons, then returned to Varsity in 1952 to coach football and basketball and to teach in the school of physical education.
He was the University of Toronto men's basketball coach for 28 seasons (1955-83), amassing a regular-season record of 174 wins and 152 losses.
