ROBB, Christopher Michael -- Dispatch
By Scott DEVEAU, Page M5
You knew it was getting late in the evening when Uncle Chris broke into the classic drinking tunes, especially The Black Velvet Band. Just like the subject of the song, the man's eyes "shone like diamonds."
His twinkle -- and his trademark handlebar mustache -- defined a family man: no children of his own, but enough nieces, nephews and barn cats around that he was never at a loss for someone or something to dote upon.
Christopher Michael ROBB was born in Montreal on September 16, 1944, settling in Toronto late in his teens and working on Bay Street before being recruited by International Business Machines Corporation. He met his wife and best friend, Jennifer, in the business quarter when he was 20.
During his time with International Business Machines Corporation, he watched the computer evolve from an ungainly machine to the sleek and indispensable presence it is today. What truly defined Mr. ROBB, however, was life on his farm near Port Hope, sailing on Canal Lake and above all his love for his family.
Whether it was Christmas or Thanksgiving, or one of the spa weekends enjoyed by the women in his family, Mr. ROBB pampered his guests with gourmet dinners featuring vegetables from his garden. "For the guys, he'd come up to the family cottage and we'd sit around the fire and drink," recalls Mark CARMICHAEL, his nephew. "There was a love of life there that was infectious."
In the eight months prior to his death, Mr. ROBB fought throat cancer, succumbing at the age of 61 on February 15, 2006. No one remembers him ever complaining.
Though he lost his voice near the end, there's no doubt in anyone's mind that the echo of The Black Velvet Band will continue to be heard wherever his family is found.

MOORE, Jean Gowans -- Dispatch:
By Scott DEVEAU, Page M4
Jean MOORE's life as a singer began on a dare.
After a friend challenged her to audition at the Royal Conservatory in 1942, she was immediately placed in the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir, beginning a long career with the Royal Conservatory Opera School of Toronto, before becoming a founding member of the Canadian Opera Company.
Ms. MOORE, who also formed the St. Clement's School Alumni Association, was the "original multitasker," according to her daughter Barbara MOORE.
"She walked so fast I couldn't even keep up with her as an adult, and I ran track," Barbara said.
Ms. MOORE, married to Ronald MOORE, ended her music career in the late 1960s, as she juggled four musically active children. But she also became a surrogate mother and mentor to many. In her younger years, she was even known to dust off a forlorn-looking 11-year-old Glenn Gould from the halls of the Conservatory to make sure he had had his lunch.
Ms. MOORE died at the age of 85 on May 4 from leukemia. A memorial service with performances by tenor Mark DuBois, members of the Cleveland Orchestra, and her own family will be held in June.

MINACS, Elaine (DEVERE)
Elaine MINACS passed away in her 61st year on May 17, 2006, at home surrounded by her family. She died peacefully after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Elaine was the founder and executive chair of the board of Minacs Worldwide Inc., headquartered in Toronto. She is survived by her husband Julius MINACS, daughter Andrea MINACS, brother John DEVERE and his wife Janis, sister Yvonne AGUECI and her husband Frank, sister Michelle ALLEN and her husband Chris, stepsister Mandy DEVERE, Aunt Maureen WARNER (of Northolt, Middlesex) and numerous nieces and nephews. Elaine MINACS was born on March 8, 1945, in South Harrow, England. (She became a Canadian citizen years later.) She was the oldest child of John DEVERE and his wife Margaret FLEMING/FLEMMING. From the age of 18, Elaine lived with family Friends in Oshawa and worked at General Motors until her marriage to Julius MINACS in 1965. On March 12, 1973, Elaine and Julius welcomed daughter Andrea Elaine to the family. In September 1981, after Andrea started school, Elaine founded her own company, which was housed in the original Minacs home at 65 Albert Street in Oshawa. Originally a temporary staffing company, Minacs Worldwide, has enjoyed 25 years of continuous growth and now employs approximately 5,000 people, with offices in 20 locations in Canada, the United States, and Europe. Elaine transformed her company into an internationally-recognized organization that provides high-value B.P.O. solutions centered on three core areas of service: contact centres, integrated market services, and back office administration. In 1999, she took the company from a privately-held corporation reporting revenues of $35.9 million in 1998, to a publicly-traded company (TSX: MXW) with reported revenues of $290.5 million in 2005. Over the years, Elaine's entrepreneurial skills have been nationally recognized at both the corporate and personal levels. Minacs has received numerous awards for its industry leadership and business success. Among these are: General Motors 2002 Supplier of the Year; Young Women's Christian Association of Greater Toronto 2002 Woman of Distinction for Entrepreneurship; Ernst and Young 2001 Entrepreneur of the Year; Canadian Professional Sales Association Hall of Fame 2001 Diamond Award for commitment, community involvement and generous charitable contributions; and 1993 Canadian Woman Entrepreneur of the Year for Quality. A strong supporter of children's charities, she was a past member of the Board of Directors of Kids' Help Phone. She has also been the recipient of a number of business excellence awards from the Oshawa Chamber of Commerce and the Ajax-Pickering Board of Trade. Elaine was best known for her unfaltering spirit and entrepreneurial drive. She identified new markets where the company could grow and succeed. She faced challenges head-on and welcomed new opportunities to take Minacs into uncharted territory. Resting at the Armstrong Funeral Home, 124 King Street East, Oshawa 905-433-4711, with visitation on Monday, May 22nd and Tuesday, May 23rd from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Further arrangements for visitation and service in Toronto will be confirmed at a later date.
