MARSHALL, Steve
By Mary DICKIE, Page A16
Artist, hockey player, friend. Born October 13, 1960, in Montreal. Died September 13, 2005, of adenocarcinoma, in Toronto, aged Steve MARSHALL grew up on Montreal's West Island, the fifth child of Bill and Barbara MARSHALL. His childhood was marred by a bout with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma that struck at the age of 5. Despite being given little chance of survival, Steve recovered, and spent his adolescence happily skating, skiing and roaming the shores of the Lake of Two Mountains and the streets of Montreal with a pack of close Friends. Photographs and drawings of him and his pals and a hilarious gangster movie called The Sennevillains were early signs of Steve's creative talents.
In 1980, his family moved to Ontario, and shortly afterward his father died of cancer. After a stint working as a film editor, Steve enrolled at the Ontario College of Art, where he excelled at drawing, painting, sculpture, filmmaking and photography. His work displayed his mastery of multiple media and, more often than not, his wicked sense of humour. His show called Dental Work included large paintings of dental X-rays, and a chair-sized steel tooth in which he'd hidden a motor and sensor so that when someone approached, a hideous drilling noise emanated. Another show featured a series of sculptures with film loops projected onto them: rushing water on a deep-sea diving mask, fire on a First World War gas mask.
After graduating, Steve used the skills he'd learned at Ontario College of Art to work at welding, furniture and prop design and picture framing, most recently at the Art Gallery of Ontario. He never defined himself as an artist, hating the requisite politics, but his creativity and inventiveness were endless. He'd take scraps of metal from a junkyard or bits of plastic from a surplus store and turn them into beautiful candelabra, lamps, tables, countertops or jewellery, and use pastel sticks and a collection of rubber stamps to make birthday cards.
Steve was an enthusiastic hockey player (even if he rarely scored goals), and a perfect host who made people laugh uproariously and feel privileged to be with him, whether at a huge dance party, a small, impromptu gathering or the after-work beers he enjoyed with his Friends, colleagues and teammates. There always seemed to be lots of laughter and crazy stories, including one in which Steve chased his own stolen car in a taxi on his way to his annual medical checkup, worrying his doctor with his subsequent high blood-pressure.
In 1990, Steve left an eight-year relationship with a woman and began one with a man, moving to Algonquin Island. It was a painful and difficult time, but the fact that all three remained on good terms is a wonderful testament to Steve's kindness, sensitivity and honesty -- and the impossibility that anyone could want him out of their life after experiencing him in it.
In May of last year, Steve discovered a lump on his neck and began to have recurring flu-like symptoms. It was clear that something was seriously wrong, but it took weeks of waiting, testing, phone calls and more waiting before a diagnosis of incurable adenocarcinoma was finally made. Steve waited weeks for hospital beds and doctors' appointments but he rarely complained, and refused to jump the queue by going to the United States for treatment. It was just not in his nature, and he felt more comfortable in his new apartment (knowing he was just around the corner from Moss Park arena, where he hoped to play hockey again), being cared for by his devoted partner, Wrik MEAD.
After Steve died in September, his colleagues at the Art Gallery of Ontario managed to lower the gallery's flag to half-mast in his honour. Steve might have been surprised, but no one who knew him could have been. It was a huge loss for everyone.
Mary DICKIE is Steve's friend.

Folk fest director hanging it up
Summerfolk artistic director won't return after this summer
By Bill HENRY
A search begins this week for the next Summerfolk artistic director.
Liz HARVEY- FOULDS, heading into her second festival this summer, has told the Georgian Bay Folk Society board she won't apply to renew her two-year contract.
Trying to program the music festival from her home near Thunder Bay has been frustrating and difficult while teaching high school full-time, HARVEY- FOULDS said in an interview Saturday.
When she took over the part-time contract position in the fall of 2004 from Don BIRD, who resigned after a dispute with the board, HARVEY- FOULDS was teaching part-time and planned to relocate to Owen Sound and teach school here. She said she gave that idea up after realizing she would lose seniority and have no job security.
“I've agonized and tossed and turned over this,” HARVEY- FOULDS said as folk society volunteers set up for the annual Last Chance Saloon concert and competitive audition for a main stage slot this summer.
HARVEY- FOULDS said the working relationship with the board has been “terrific,” there's no controversy around her departure and she regrets leaving after such a short time.
Folk society president Pam HEARN- ERB said the board appreciated HARVEY- FOULDS' early notice, which came weeks ago but was to be made public in a media release today. No public announcement was to be made Saturday during the Last Chance Saloon, which also serves as a volunteer recognition party.
“I think Liz has been good for us. She had big shoes to fill and we think she filled them well,” HEARN- ERB said.
“As a board we're totally fine with it. We appreciated her honesty and we certainly appreciated her being here. We think she's been really good for the organization.&rdquo
HARVEY- FOULDS has programmed the Red Rocks folk festival for several years as a volunteer, and plans to continue that. Her first Summerfolk lineup was the 30th annual last August.
She assumed the role with a goal and a mandate to return the event to its folk roots. She brought back mostly favourite acts from the festival's history, with a mix of newer, younger folk artists and a few veterans who had never played Summerfolk.
She said her plan then, and again this year, was to gather musicians who knew one another or could work well enough together to mix up entertaining and spontaneous music at the informal workshops, which are more vital to the festival's success than spotlight evening performances, she said.
“I tried not to focus on trying to prove anything to anybody, because there was a lot of pressure I realized after the event on me to prove that I could do it. I decided not to think about that, but instead to think about a celebration of the festival's past and the strengths of the community and making the weekend a really wonderful experience.&rdquo
She said she was justifiably criticized by some last year for hiring too few women, not enough country musicians, and especially not enough world music. She's fixed that this year with a lineup announced Saturday night which includes African guitarists, several Cuban and Latin jazz groups, a long list of women songwriters and singers, and several country music performers.
The lineup for the August 18, 19 and 20 festival at Kelso Beach includes:
Plenty of Cuban, African and Latin American acts for world music fans, including The African Guitar, Jane Bunnett and her band of Cuban and Canadian jazz players, a 12-piece band from Cuba, the Latin Jazz band Flamenco Caravan, and Latin jazz singer Eliana Cuevas.
Prairie Oyster and Alan Rhody from Nashville for country fans.
A long list of women including Juno winner Lynn Miles, Mae Moore with Lester Quitzau, blues singer Rita Chiarelli, The Anne Lindsay Band, and Fig for A Kiss, featuring Sahra Featherstone.
Songwriters Bill Bourne; Alex Sinclair of Tamarack; Ottawa-area newcomer Brock ZEEMAN; and both Steve DICKINSON and David SEREDA from the Owen Sound area, as well as Walkerton's Richard KNECHTEL.
Groups include East Coast rockers and award winners Chucky Danger, the Appalachian and Celtic influenced New England trio Crooked Still and Winnipeg's D. Rangers, who mix Bluegrass and western swing with a punk rock attitude.
Rob Elder and Friends, with Pete Devlin and Joel Morelli, who were clear crowd favourites to win a main stage slot with their 15-minute Last Chance Saloon performance Saturday night. It was the second time Elder has won the event.
Georgian Bay Folk Society policies require the board to advertise the artistic director position every two years. Advertisements will go out immediately with plans to fill the position by June and have both new and current artistic directors at this year's festival for a smooth transition.
Both the director and the president said Saturday there are clear and obvious advantages for whoever programs the festival to reside in the local community.
“I don't want to say that they should hire someone who lives in the community. That's not my place to say,” HARVEY- FOULDS said. “I don't think it's necessary to run the festival for the person to be here, but for me, if I'm the artistic director I need to be here. I need to be part of the community.&rdquo
When it became clear moving to Owen Sound was off, she said she bowed out of the position.
HEARN- ERB believes the job should go to someone living in the area.
“But that's not necessarily what the board will decide to do,&rdquo she said Saturday. “I think it's important to be involved in the community. Summerfolk is a community event. It really is and I think it's important for the person that's in charge of that aspect of it to understand the community.&rdquo
Only three of more than 30 candidates to replace BIRD were Grey-Bruce residents.
BIRD lives in Toronto but was originally from Owen Sound and maintained a local connection during his 10-year tenure and was able to attend almost every board meeting, HEARN- ERB said.

YOUNG, Herbert (October 7, 1922-December 13, 2006)
Herb YOUNG, beloved son of the late Norman and Clara YOUNG of Guelph. Loving father of Suzanne Patricia (Douglas LEITH) of Southampton, and Peter Andrew (“Lisa” Mary Elizabeth JOHNSON) of Owen Sound. Adoring grandfather of Gillian, Meredith, and Andrew MARR - all of Toronto. Survived by his adored and loving wife Ruth (SHARPE) of Stirling and Belleville. Survived also by his brothers Joseph (Audrey) and Lloyd (Beatrice) of Guelph. Pre-deceased by his sister Ann (Lou), and brothers Sidney (Ruth) of Toronto, George (Shirley) of Kitchener, and Maurice (Muriel) of Guelph, and his first wife Doreen (DICKSON/DIXON) of Southampton. Survived also by many loving nieces, nephews and their families. Herb had a special place in his heart for his four-legged Friends - Sammy, Ginger and Apollo. Herb will be sadly missed by his close network of family, Friends and colleagues in the communities where he lived, worked and played. Herb lived in Guelph, Oshawa, Oakville, Windsor and Belleville. He spent his summers at the family cottage at Southampton on Lake Huron enjoying tennis and fishing with family and Friends. In Belleville, he was a longtime member of the Harbour Club and enjoyed playing squash and tennis with his many Friends and associates. Herb graduated from Guelph C.V.I. in 1941 and was awarded Ontario's largest scholarship, the Col. John McRae Scholarship to the U. of T. Two years later, in June, 1943, he decided to leave university and enlisted in the Army, serving as a Lieutenant attached to the Royal Canadian Regiment (R.C.R.), until the end of World War 2. However, when the war in Europe ended in May, 1945, the Canadian government decided to create a new Airborne Division, made up of volunteers, to serve in the Far East where the war in the Pacific against Japan was still raging. Again, Herb volunteered, and was sent to Vernon, British Columbia where he was appointed Acting Captain, Second-in-Command, and Company Training Officer of “A” Company, #3 - Infantry Training Battalion, #2 - Pacific Training Brigade. When the war ended, Herb returned to the U. of T., graduating in 1947 with a B.Sc. degree in Chemical Engineering. He was initially employed for three years by Fiberglass Canada Ltd. at Newark, Ohio and at its newly built plant in Sarnia. He spent three years as a Management Consultant with J.D. Woods and Gordon, followed by sixteen years with affiliated companies, with the final seven years as President, Chief Executive Officer and Director of the Dominion Forging Co., Windsor, Ontario, the largest steel forging company in Canada. During this period, he was also a director in a number of additional companies including the Braun Engineering Co. of Detroit, International Tools Ltd. of Windsor, Welland Electric Steel Foundry Ltd., of Welland, and Security Capital Corp. of Toronto. He was also a director of the American Drop Forging Association. While residing in Windsor, he was a member of the Beach Grove Golf and Country Club and the Detroit Athletic Club. In 1970, after having had a lifetime interest in education, he accepted the presidency of Loyalist College of Applied Arts and Technology in Belleville, a fledgling new Ontario community college. He served in that position until his retirement in 1988. He served the Ontario College system as a member and as chairman of a number of committees. In 1986, while Chairman of the Committee of Ontario College Presidents, he was part of a small Ontario delegation sent to Nanjing, capital of Jiangsu province, China to arrange to “twin” the Ontario college system and to arrange for a student exchange with similar educational institutions in that province. In 1989, as the countries of Eastern Europe were freeing themselves from 50 years of Communism and from Russian rule, it became obvious that they would require considerable assistance from the “West”, including Canada. Herb, having travelled extensively in Europe in the past, and wishing to utilize his industrial and educational experience in this endeavour, offered his services to the federal Ministry of External Affairs and to the Canadian Executive Services Organization. Over the next 10 years, he served as a consultant on numerous projects in Central and Eastern Europe, from the Baltic Sea to the Black Sea, and in the countries of Latvia, the Czech and Slovak Republics, Hungary and Romania. His final project in 1998, in Xian, China involved working with a research and development company to develop new and creative uses for titanium metals and alloys, with the end products being suitable for export markets. It was shortly after his return from China that he was diagnosed as having inflammatory neuropathy, a debilitating illness which he battled courageously until his death. Family and Friends are invited to call at the Burke Funeral Home (613-968-6968) 150 Church Street, Belleville on Friday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral Service will be held in the chapel on Saturday, December 16, 2006 at 2: 00 p.m. Reception to follow at Loyalist College. Interment at Woodlawn Cemetery, Guelph. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association, The Quinte Humane Society, or the charity of your choice. “Goodnight sweet prince, may flights of angels sing thee to thy rest” William Shakespeare.

Canoeist's body found
By Canadian Press, Sun., May 7, 2006
Paris -- The body of a man who went missing a week ago in southern Ontario after his canoe went over a dam and capsized has been recovered.
Ontario Provincial Police say the body of Ken JAMIESON was spotted by a relative on the Grand River in Paris.
JAMIESON, 41, was on an annual canoe trip in the area with eight others April 29 when his canoe missed a portage, went over the dam and flipped.
His fellow canoeist, Jason ENAIR, was rescued by others.
The accident also killed 41-year-old Rob DICKSON/DIXON of Dundas, who tried to rescue JAMIESON and ENAIR.
Police say surging water levels halted initial recovery efforts.
In April 2001, a 35-year-old man was killed in a kayaking accident at the dam.

DICKSON/DIXON, Joyce Ethel
Joyce DICKSON/DIXON died peacefully at St. Boniface Hospital, Sunday night, April 23, 2006. Paralyzed on her right side by a stroke, Joyce spent the last two years at Misericordia Health Centre. Predeceased in 1981 by her twin sister, Gladys SIM of Ontario. Because of her poor eyesight, Joyce went directly to normal school after graduating from Gordon Bell High School. She began her teaching career in Dugald, Manitoba and immediately took education courses by correspondence. Joyce traveled many times to Europe during the summer holidays, and over the years taught in several elementary schools in Winnipeg. Her last school was Laura Secord. During her lifetime she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Ottawa, a Bachelor of Education degree from the University of Manitoba and a Master of Education from the University of Toronto. After the death of her twin, Joyce took early retirement. Whenever she was shopping or visiting in different areas of the city, she was constantly approached by young women and men, who would rush to speak to her, "Do you remember me? I was in you Grade 4 class! You were my teacher!" Cards and letters often came from some of her former pupils and that pleased her a great deal. Since 1940, Joyce worshipped at First Presbyterian Church where she made many Friends and experienced a variety of ministers. Joyce was also a devoted member of the University Women's Club of Winnipeg where she especially appreciated the desserts that were served at Drop-In lunches. If any of her Friends or former pupils would like to do something in her honour, Joyce makes a special request. No flowers and no gifts to charities. "What I would really like is that you befriend a youngster or two in your neighbourhood. Support that child or those children, remember their birthdays, listen to their stories, get to know their families, and enjoy the reactions you will receive." Joyce leaves to mourn her sister Rev. Dr. Irene J. DICKSON/DIXON; her cousins Clifford (Marceline) PESHAL, in Lindsay, Ontario; Grace SEGERKVIST in Sault Ste. Marie; and Mavis WRIGHT (Steve) in Nevada, U.S.A. A funeral service will be held on Wednesday, April 26 at 10: 00 a.m. at Chapel Lawn Funeral Home, 4000 Portage Avenue, and the service will be conducted by Joyce's friend, the Reverend Amy CAMPBELL. Family and Friends are invited to sign the Book of Condolence at www.chapellawn.mb.ca Chapel Lawn Funeral Home and Reception Centre 204-885-9715.

'You'd believe everything he said'
The veteran Canadian Broadcasting Corporation broadcaster was known as a non-stop talker and an equally good listener, writes Guy DICKSON/DIXON
By Guy DICKSON/DIXON, Page R3
Lister SINCLAIR felt that all the talk about being a Renaissance man and a Canadian media icon, even after more than 50 years as one of the Canada's most prominent broadcasters, was something he really didn't want.
In an interview recorded last year, the writer and broadcaster, who spent five decades at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, said with an audible smile that any association with the Renaissance was code for being hopelessly emblematic of something long since past.
And all that icon talk? Well, that made him sound like an authority on things. "I don't wish to be an authority, because I know I'm not," he said.
No doubt many will view SINCLAIR's death yesterday morning at the age of 85 as the passing of a golden era for radio and television, a time when both were more conversational and, many will argue (including SINCLAIR himself, some say,) more substantive. It was a time when SINCLAIR the playwright, actor, writer, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation host, trained mathematician and all around polymath could simply sit in front of a television camera and talk about Einstein's theory of relativity and it would be a great broadcast.
But as it turns out, SINCLAIR didn't pine for that era.
"If you said to him, 'When was your golden age?' He'd say, 'This one right now.' To him, now was the golden age. He did not look backwards," said Sara WOLCH, a producer at Radio One's Ideas, who worked with SINCLAIR for 25 years.
Ideas had become SINCLAIR's signature show. The program has been airing Thank You, Mr. SINCLAIR, which continues tonight. (The tribute series originally ran last year, but has modified for this rebroadcast with SINCLAIR's death.) Wolch said it features interviews with SINCLAIR and excerpts from his long career: from acting in Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio plays during the Second World War to Ideas, and even his radio show on disco.
"One of the saddest things about him dying is that he always wanted to know, 'What next?' He had so many questions unanswered about the nature of the universe. He was interested in everything," Wolch said.
By the time she started working with him, SINCLAIR was already 60 and a broadcast veteran. After meeting at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and talking about various projects, they decided to rent a lecture hall and form a studio group in the early 1980s, a monthly weekend seminar for 30 people, ranging from a journalist and economist to a massage therapist to a singer of Schubert's songs, to discuss military history, the Romantics, the ideas of Charles Darwin, mathematics, physics, you name it.
"Lister only charged $30 per person per weekend," WOLCH added. "When you think now of all these salons that are starting up, where people pay a lot of money to chat for a weekend, we were doing this a long time ago for almost nothing."
Then there were similar, pan-topic discussions with more prominent people, such as Pierre BERTON, who met as students at the University of British Columbia. BERTON has in the past described SINCLAIR as a non-stop talker, but others note that SINCLAIR was an equally good listener.
Yet Elsa FRANKLIN, BERTON's long-time manager, joked that SINCLAIR's enthusiasms sometimes got the better of him.
"He had total recall. He had a photographic memory. He had a beautiful voice, of course. And he spent all his money. He never had a penny," she said. But "I have a daughter who's a physicist. She teaches at Harvard. They'd get together, and she'd say to me, 'He really doesn't know that much about physics.' He could talk and he knew so much that you'd believe everything he said. Sometimes you did catch him.
"He was extraordinarily curious and had a tremendous knowledge. He awed most people because of that," she added. FRANKLIN had originally met SINCLAIR when he taught at Lorne Greene's Academy of Radio Arts in Toronto.
Then there were SINCLAIR's lunches with Conrad Black. "Twenty five years ago or something, Conrad Black had phoned me up and said, 'Do you know Lister SINCLAIR? He's my intellectual hero, and I've never met him, and could you arrange a lunch,' " remembered writer, broadcaster and former Canadian Broadcasting Corporation chairman Patrick WATSON. All three had that lunch in one of Black's corporate board rooms. WATSON later wrote about it in his autobiography, and Black chided him for doing so.
WATSON and Black then bumped into each other in June this year, "and after we joked about it, Black said, 'We should reconvene the lunch.' And we do. Those two guys just went at it about European military history until your head was spinning." This was in July. "It was just great to be a spectator at that one," WATSON said.
But even though SINCLAIR was "a powerful intellectual, he was also a populist. And he wanted to make ideas and a penetrating view of the world available to the widest possible audience," WATSON said.
Similarly, WOLCH noted that "he profoundly believed that the people who listened to our programs were smart, but perhaps not necessarily in the subject area that we were discussing that night."
That notion of making the material accessible was very important to SINCLAIR. "We would pass drafts of the script back and forth, back and forth, constantly editing and rewriting to get it just right. He had no ego whatsoever when it came to editing his writing."

ELDER, John Munro, M.D.
John Munro ELDER, husband, father, grandfather and pediatrician to many generations of young Montrealers, died early Tuesday, November 14, 2006, at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal, at the age of 82, after a lengthy battle with dementia, compounded by heart and respiratory illness. He is survived by his wife, Janet, and children Matthew (Jane BAKER,) Katharine (James DEACON) and Stephen (Josee MAURICE,) and son-in-law David POWELL, and eight grandchildren. His daughter Judith died in 2002. John represented the third generation of physicians in the ELDER family, all of whom were educated at McGill University, and prominent staff members of the university's teaching hospitals. He served in the Royal Canadian Artillery in northwest Europe during the Second World War. After the war, John returned to McGill, entering the Medical School in 1947. He married Janet DICKSON/DIXON on December 27, 1949. He graduated from McGill Medical School in 1951 and, after specializing in Pediatrics, entered private practice in 1956. A mong his many positions and achievements, John was medical director of the Mackay Centre (handicapped children), founding director of the Montreal Children's Hospital Adolescent Clinic, director of the Montreal General Hospital Newborn Nursery, a board member of Camp Amy Molson and on the staff of the Children's Service Centre. He is a past president of the Canadian Paediatric Society. His dedication to youth extended to the educational community, and he served several years as a commissioner for the Westmount Protestant School Board. John retired in 1997, but remained beloved by his former patients, some of whom would greet him on his frequent walks in his neighbourhood. His non-professional interests over the years included reading, golf, sailing and, above all, tending to the trees and shrubs at his beloved property at Lake Manitou.

YOUNG, Herbert (October 7, 1922-December 13, 2006)
Herb YOUNG, beloved son of the late Norman and Clara YOUNG of Guelph. Loving father of Suzanne Patricia (Douglas LEITH) of Southampton, and Peter Andrew ("Lisa" Mary Elizabeth JOHNSON) of Owen Sound. Adoring grandfather of Gillian, Meredith, and Andrew MARR - all of Toronto. Survived by his adored and loving wife Ruth (Sharpe) of Stirling and Belleville. Survived also by his brothers, Joseph (Audrey) and Lloyd (Beatrice) of Guelph. Pre-deceased by his sister Ann (Lou), and brothers Sidney (Ruth) of Toronto, George (Shirley) of Kitchener, and Maurice (Muriel) of Guelph, and his first wife Doreen (DICKSON/DIXON) of Southampton. Survived also by many loving nieces, nephews and their families. Herb had a special place in his heart for his four-legged Friends - Sammy, Ginger and Apollo. Herb will be sadly missed by his close network of family, Friends and colleagues in the communities where he lived, worked and played. Herb lived in Guelph, Oshawa, Oakville, Windsor and Belleville. He spent his summers at the family cottage at Southampton on Lake Huron enjoying tennis and fishing with family and Friends. In Belleville, he was a longtime member of the Harbour Club and enjoyed playing squash and tennis with is many Friends and associates. Herb graduated from Guelph C.V.I. in 1941 and was awarded Ontario's largest scholarship, the Col. John McRae Scholarship to the U of T. Two years later, in June, 1943, he decided to leave university and enlisted in the Army, serving as a Lieutenant attached to the Royal Canadian regiment (R.C.R.), until the end of W.W.2. However, when the war in Europe ended in May, 1945, the Canadian government decided to create a new Airborne Division, made up of volunteers, to serve in the Far East where the war in the Pacific against Japan was still raging. Again, Herb volunteered, and was sent to Vernon, British Columbia where he was appointed Acting Captain, Second-in-Command, and Company Training Officer of "A" Company, #3-Infantry Training Battalion, #2-Pacific Training Brigade. When the war ended, Herb returned to the U of T., graduating in 1947 with a B.Sc. degree in Chemical Engineering. He was initially employed for three years by Fiberglass Canada Ltd. at Newark, Ohio and at its newly built plant in Sarnia. He spent three years as a Management Consultant with J.D. Woods and Gordon, followed by sixteen years with affiliated companies, with the final seven years as President, Chief Executive Officer and Director of the Dominion Forging Co., Windsor, Ontario, the largest steel forging company in Canada. During this period, he was also a director in a number of additional companies including The Braun Engineering Co. of Detroit, International Tools Ltd. of Windsor, Welland Electric Steel Foundry Ltd. of Welland, and Security Capital Corp. of Toronto. He was also director of the Canadian Automotive Parts Manufacturing Association and the only Canadian director of the American Drop Forging Association. While residing in Windsor, he was a member of the Beach Grove Golf and Country Cub and the Detroit Athletic Club. In 1970, after having had a lifetime interest in education, he accepted the presidency of Loyalist College of Applied Arts and Technology in Belleville, a fledging new Ontario community college. He served in that position until his retirement in 1988. He served the Ontario College system as a member and as chairman of a number of committees. In 1986, while Chairman of the Committee of Ontario College Presidents, he was part of a small Ontario delegation sent to Nanjing, capital of Jiangsu province, China to arrange to "twin" the Ontario college system and to arrange for a student exchange with similar educational institutions in that province. In 1989, as the countries of Eastern Europe were freeing themselves from 50 years of Communism and from Russia rule, it became obvious that they would require considerable assistance from the "West", including Canada. Herb, having travelled extensively in Europe in the past, and wishing to utilize his industrial and educational experience in this endeavour, offered his services to the federal Ministry of External Affairs and to the Canadian Executive Services Organization. Over the next 10 years, he served as a consultant on numerous projects in Central and Eastern Europe, from the Baltic Sea to the Black Sea, and in the countries of Latvia, the Czech and Slovak Republics, Hungary and Romania. His final project in 1998, in Xian, China involved working with a research and development company to develop new and creative uses for titanium metals and alloys, with the end products being suitable for export markets. It was shortly after his return from China that he was diagnosed as having inflammatory neuropathy, a debilitating illness which he battled courageously until his death. Family and Friends are invited to call the Burke Funeral Home (613-968-6968) 150 Church Street, Belleville on Friday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral service will be held in the chapel on Saturday, December 16, 2006 at 2: 00 p.m. Reception to follow at Loyalist College. Interment at Woodlawn Cemetery, Guelph. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association, The Quinte Humane Society, or the charity of your choice.
