BESRUKY, Eugene
By Sandra FAIRMAN and Iris WILDE, Page A18
Force of nature, Renaissance man. Born July 11, 1949, in Malartic, Quebec Died August 30, 2005, in Ottawa, of complications from paraplegia, aged 56.
Eugene BESRUKY once said that if he ever wrote his autobiography he'd call it Looking Up. This title conveyed not only the way he saw the world from his wheelchair, but his optimism and boundless determination.
Eugene contracted polio as an infant. Growing up on a farm in Grimsby, Ontario, he was sent to a school for disabled children. When province-wide testing was done in Grade 7, Eugene's results confirmed that intelligence does not reside in the legs. He went on to attend his local high school, University of Waterloo and he graduated from Carleton University.
After university, spinal surgery meant spending 11 months on his back in hospital. A pragmatist as well as an optimist, he used his IV pole as a macramé frame and sold his wares to visitors and staff. Money was a driving force in Eugene's life: it meant independence, security -- and toys.
In 1976, Eugene joined the federal civil service and worked for 29 years as a criminal investigator at the Competition Bureau where he was known as Gene, "Ruky," or "Wheels." He was one of the bureau's best negotiators
Eugene's life was a whirlwind of activity. He was a superb cook and had mastered the making of sausage, cheese, wine and beer. He enjoyed music, gardening, electronics, sailing, fishing, and horseback riding. Eugene was active in Toastmasters, studied gemology, grew orchids, skied downhill, went scuba diving in Curaçao, crossed the continent in his van several times; photographed the rain-forest of Costa Rica, kayaked in the Yukon and canoed among alligators in the Everglades -- going where no wheelchair had gone before. Most recently, he was learning to fly a glider. As his friend George asked at his memorial, "How many of us have done all of those things? How many have done any of them?"
Of Eugene's passions, photography was the most enduring. He won prizes for his work, which was exhibited at the National Press Gallery in Ottawa. His photograph of a young girl playing with leaves was used by Nikon in a promotional brochure. When his friend Klaus asked why he needed such cumbersome equipment to take pictures, Eugene said: "Because I want to make art and this is the only way I know how."
Perhaps his most surprising undertaking, for a man of action, was his decision to explore his spiritual side with the Inner Journey group. This led him to his wife, Rita FINNIGAN, a person as extraordinary as Eugene himself -- only quieter about it.
The stories of Eugene's exploits will be told for years to come. There was the time he talked his way into centre-ice seats at the World Figure Skating Championships, without tickets. The time he arrived unannounced on his Friends' doorstep with a hundred pounds of milk and declared, "We're making cheese." And the time he was to meet a client to whom he had only spoken on the phone. When asked how they would recognize each other, Eugene said he'd be wearing a red carnation, but didn't mention his wheelchair.
Eugene's spirit of showmanship was evident to the last. At his memorial service, when his friend Joanne spoke the words, "Eugene was one of the most powerful people I knew" the power went out. The dark room erupted in cheers, clapping and shouts of "Way to go, Eugene!" Later the power failed a second time as the final piece of music drew to a close. Family, Friends and colleagues sang the last refrain: "I did it my way." The lights never did come back on.
Sandra and Iris are two of Eugene's many Friends.
