MELTZER, David Borris
By Allan MELTZER, Page A16
Teacher, healer, husband, humorist, father, uncle, friend. Born on July 2, 1919, in Winnipeg. Died on August 25, 2005, of a heart attack in London, Ontario, aged 86.
One August day, my special Uncle David awoke, swam a mile, played a round of golf and went bargain hunting. He collapsed in the store and was gone. He was 86 years old. The youngest of eight, he grew up in Beausejour, Manitoba, and left to attend the University of Manitoba. After graduating, he joined the Royal Canadian Air Force and did his basic training in Clinton, Ontario, where met his wife Zivia. He returned to Canada after the Second World War and attended medical school at the University of Western Ontario.
He specialized in hematology (the branch of medicine dealing with blood), and in 1955 began a 35-year career at London's St. Joseph's Health Care. Over the years, he established a reputation as a great physician and a great character.
Once I asked my Uncle Dave what he did at St Joseph's. With a wry grin and tongue firmly in cheek he answered, "I save lives, stamp out disease, lessen human suffering and advance the frontiers of scientific knowledge."
A colleague once said that David MELTZER's talent was the ability to blend the science of medicine with the art of caring. A woman I worked with asked me if I was related to Dr. David MELTZER. When I told her that he was my uncle, she hugged me! I was a proxy. Her mother was my uncle's patient and he treated her for years. The daughter said that he never talked down to her mother or family and never left her room without making her smile.
And he did make people smile. He had an amazing wit and loved puns and other word play. And he had a repertoire of thousands of very, very bad jokes of which the nuns at St. Joseph's were often victims.
He taught at the University of Western Ontario's medical school. Students, both past and present, were always welcome in his home. The respect was obvious and I benefited from it. A case of food poisoning brought me to the infirmary at one of Banff's large hotels. Luckily, the doctor was in. "Any relation to Dr. David MELTZER?" he asked, examining my health card.
"My uncle," I said.
"He was my professor," he said. "Normally, I'd send you back and tell you to tough it out, but as a mark of respect for your uncle, I'll give you something." I was fine after a shot of an anti-nausea agent and a drug-induced sleep.
"So many people owe their lives to David," a relative said at the funeral. My mother was one of them. We were living in Winnipeg at the time. She was just home from having had surgery and felt a cold coming on. Somehow she also strained a muscle her back and told my uncle this on the phone. Suddenly, Uncle David said he had to hang up and would call back. About five minutes later, an ambulance appeared at our door. Uncle Dave diagnosed a blood clot in her lung from 2,000 kilometres away.
Along with his son Alan, daughter Sari, companion Ruth FINK and their families, I will really miss him. But I take some consolation that my uncle lived his last day on this Earth no different than the previous 86-plus years.
He had many letters after his name but, for us, the most important of all his titles was uncle. He was always there to lend his nieces and nephews an empathetic ear. He would always raise our spirits. He was a very special uncle. When we ended a visit to Uncle David's and were leaving, he would always say: "Say hello to the mayor for me."
Well now it's my turn: Uncle David, say hello to the mayor for me.
Allan is David MELTZER's nephew.

FINLAY, Helen
God looked around his garden And found an empty place, And then looked down upon the earth And saw your tired face. He put his arms around you And lifted you to rest, God's garden must be beautiful He always takes the best. He knew that you were suffering He knew you were in pain He knew that you would not get well Here on earth again. He saw the road was getting rough And the hills were hard to climb So he closed your weary eyelids And whispered "Peace Be Thine" It broke our hearts to lose you, But you did not go alone For part of us went with you The Day god Called You Home. Love always, your family. You are missed dearly Mama, Keep your stick on the ice. Love Don

Kenneth MAXTED, Officer And Clergyman (1931-2006)
He was a soldier-turned-priest who brought a military bearing to the clergy, writes Sandra MARTIN. He loved ceremony and uniforms and, with a bristling moustache, always looked the part -- irrespective of vocation
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S11
There were uniforms, medals, honorary guards and the robust singing of hymns as the many parts of Rev. Ken MAXTED's life came together Thursday afternoon at Saint_James Cathedral. The church was packed for the service that Canon MAXTED had himself planned, even to the designation of who should give the homily. Don't talk about me, Canon MAXTED said in his written funeral instructions to Rev. Mark SARGENT, a Catholic priest: Preach the gospels.
A self-defined soldier-priest who served in Korea and then became an ordained Anglican priest, Canon MAXTED was a community activist, a traditionalist and a great burly fellow who loved a joke and knew how to tell a story. "There was never an atheist in a foxhole," said Charles SCOT- BROWN, a retired soldier and family friend, attributing Mr. MAXTED's dual vocation to his upbringing in a family that went to church and "believed in God and the King, and when the King blew the whistle you joined."
He loved ceremony and uniforms and he looked the part, standing 6 feet 5 inches, with flaming red hair, a bristling mustache and a booming voice. In the mid-1970s, in addition to his duties as a clergyman, a reservist and an elected school official, Canon MAXTED began working as a volunteer aide de camp for Ontario's Lieutenant-Governors. In the next 20 years, he served Pauline McGibbon, John Aird Black, Lincoln Alexander and Henry N.R. JACKMAN.
"Nobody stood as tall as he did in his scarlet uniform, with all the gold braid and piles of medals," said Mr. JACKMAN, remembering a time, in the early 1990s, when Bob Rae was premier of Ontario. Mr. Rae was explaining the parliamentary system to a group of schoolchildren and Canon MAXTED was standing to attention behind him, recalled Mr. JACKMAN. Afterward, one of the children was asked what he thought of the premier. "He looked magnificent, but he didn't say anything," the student said, complaining that "the little guy beside him did all the talking."
Major The Reverend Canon Kenneth MAXTED was born in Toronto, the elder of two children of Edward Kenneth (Ted) MAXTED (a professional soldier who had joined the Canadian army in 1921 at 12 as a bugle boy and retired 40 years later as a major) and his wife Mary Eileen Patricia HOWARD. Both sides of the family had served in the military going back at least three generations.
Canon MAXTED grew up in Toronto with his younger sister Patricia and attended Parkdale Collegiate. Too young to serve in the Second World War, he enlisted as a private in the Irish Regiment in 1948 when he was 17. "He was always an intense, energetic, mischievous kid," said Mr. SCOT- BROWN, who served with Canon MAXTED's father. "He could pull the craziest practical jokes, but his pranks never hurt anybody."
Canon MAXTED qualified as a reserve officer in 1951 and as an infantry officer in the regular forces the following year. A member of the now defunct Canadian Guards, he served in Germany with North Atlantic Treaty Organization Forces and in Korea with the United Nations forces in 1953 for a year-long tour of duty.
Before he returned to Canada, he gave a speech to the South Korean soldiers, deploring "the thousands of homeless and the hungry children begging for food" and the "rubble and shell-torn cities" and paying tribute to the people "of the Land of the Morning Calm" and their "never-failing determination to survive as a free and independent nation." In return, they gave him a South Korean flag. Forty years later, Mr. MAXTED gave the flag to his son Kevin to take back to South Korea when he taught English there for a year in 1996. The flag is now part of a display about the Korean War at the Royal Canadian Military Institute in Toronto.
Back in Canada, Canon MAXTED was stationed at Camp Ipperwash, about an hour's drive from London, Ontario One evening in September of 1954, he went to a dance at the London Arena. There he spotted a young Dutch immigrant named Hendrina VAN DER MOER. He asked her to dance and she accepted. Six months later, on St. Patrick's Day, he proposed. They were married on December 15, 1955, in a military wedding at Saint Paul's Cathedral in London. Three children followed: Pamela, Sean and Kevin.
Canon MAXTED, who had always been a devout Christian, decided to study for the ministry and enrolled in the Faculty of Theology at Huron College in the University of Western Ontario in 1960. "The military and the church were always entwined in him," said his wife, who was not surprised when her husband came home one day and said he wanted to leave the regular army and study theology.
One of his fellow students was retired Archbishop Terry FINLAY. "He used to lighten our studies by coming up with an occasional military term to keep our worship in order, but underneath all that, there was a strong commitment to the faith.
"As his archbishop, I found his approach much more conservative than mine, but we were able to work together," Archbishop FINLAY said, declining to elaborate on the specific issues, other than to confirm that Canon MAXTED was a traditionalist.
He was ordained as an Anglican deacon in 1963, and a priest in 1964. He served in a number of Toronto parishes as he climbed the ecclesiastical career ladder, including Saint Anne's, Saint_John's York Mills, St. Luke's in East York and historic Holy Trinity Church in the middle of downtown Toronto, adjacent to the Eaton Centre.
This appointment was controversial. Holy Trinity, one of the oldest surviving Anglican churches in Toronto, had a dwindling but radical congregation and was in danger of being overpowered by commercial development. The late Archbishop Lewis GARNSWORTHY decided to put himself in direct charge of the church in February of 1977. He appointed Canon MAXTED, who had served under him at Saint_John's York Mills, Vicar in May, 1977, in a move that many observers felt was autocratic and designed to make the church conform to traditional ideas of parish outreach. Five months later, Archbishop GARNSWORTHY issued a statement saying there were irregularities in the ministry, function, government and Anglican tradition at the church and announced he was setting up a commission to recommend corrective action.
Many parishioners were outraged, but Canon MAXTED proved an adept conciliator and "stabilized" the situation, according to Very Rev. Douglas STOUTE, dean of Saint_James Cathedral and one of the celebrants at Canon MAXTED's funeral. "He always had a military bearing and his immersion in military culture made him respect authority and hierarchy, but he never took it too seriously," said Dean STOUTE. " Behind his military facade, he was a gentle spirit and a man of great compassion. He had a huge sense of humour and was a wonderful raconteur."
A year later, he was named an honorary Canon of Saint_James Cathedral, an appointment that allowed a clever editor at The Globe and Mail to top a news story about a robbery at Holy Trinity in 1984 with the headline: "Canon weighs down thief." Apparently, Canon MAXTED had noticed a man grappling with a customer and an employee of the church's café and wrestled the suspect to the ground where he sat on him. "I'm a former infantry officer, so I knew what to do," the burly soldier-priest said. "I may be 52, but I'm still good for one round." After the thief was incarcerated, Canon MAXTED visited him in jail.
In addition to his duties to the Church (he was regional dean of Saint_James Deanery from 1980-1984 and chaplain of the Fort York Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion, the Royal Canadian Military Institute and 54 Division Toronto Police Services) and to the military, where he served in the reserves from 1960 to 1986, Canon MAXTED was a school board trustee in East York from 1974 to 1994 and chair of the East York Board of Education from 1986-92. He also acted in a senior capacity on a number of community organizations from the Metro Folk Arts Council to Toronto-Amsterdam Twin Cities Committee to the East York Cancer Society.
Speaking about Canon MAXTED's intense level of activity, his old friend Mr. SCOT- BROWN said this was typical of an infantry officer. "In the infantry, you were always taking care of your men. When something had to be done, you didn't look at it -- you fixed it. You got on with it."
Besides his service decorations, including the Order of Military Merit, he was awarded the Centennial Medal and the Queen Elizabeth Jubilee Medal. He was also an active member of the Royal Canadian Military Institute and an engaged and energetic family man, performing weddings and baptisms as his children grew and multiplied. And he started what many would consider a new career, as a member of three federal administrative tribunals, the Canadian Pension Commission, the Veterans Review and Appeal Board and the Canadian Forces Grievance Board.
About a year ago, he appeared to be suffering from laryngitis but it turned out to be non-Hodgkins lymphoma that had manifested itself in a tumour in his throat. He started chemotherapy last September, but his immune system couldn't stave off infections. "He liked to set goals," Ms. MAXTED said about her husband, mentioning that no matter how ill he was, he wanted to live long enough to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary in December. Instead, she reminded him on St. Patrick's Day that he had made it to the 50th anniversary of their engagement. He died the next day.
Major the Rev. Canon Kenneth Edward MAXTED was born on June 23, 1931, in Toronto. He died of complications from cancer on March 18, 2006. He was 74. He is survived by his wife, Hendrina, his children Pamela, Sean and Kevin, two grandchildren, his sister and two nephews.
