VAN GRINSVEN, Tiny
In memory of Tiny VAN GRINSVEN, who passed away October 2, 2005.
A year has gone by without you now
And I still struggle with why and how.
You raised us all to care for others
As brothers, sisters, and mothers.
Yet, here we are without you
And we really dont know what to do.
I sometimes think you taught us too well
On our own problems you said never to dwell.
When Dad passed on, that lesson pulled us through
We had not to think of our loss, but the loss for others like you.
But now you're both gone, and our grief is ours alone
Our family has changed in ways no one could have known.
In honour of your spirit, this poem cant be all sad
We miss you so much, but are happy to know youre with Dad.
We see your Friends and, with a smile, they mention your name
They squeeze our hand and say they still miss your card game.
Your grandchildren still admire and brag about all you did
Your costumes, jokes, and gummy bears, you were the biggest kid.
Your roses still bloom, their scent is divine
The only difference is their garden is now mine.
Your strength, your humour, your love will never die
It carries on in our hearts and in the tears we still cry.
We cry and we laugh, we gather and we go our separate ways
We reminisce of years gone by and we pray for better days.
If I had just one wish, it would be for me
To be the kind of wife and mother I've always known you to be.
Dream a little dream of me.
All my love, Teresa FISCHTNER

Guelph, Ontario -- A prominent Guelph realtor who served as an member of Parliament during Joe Clark's short-lived federal government died Wednesday of complications from a recent heart attack. Albert FISH was 83.
Born in England, he served in the Royal Air Force before emigrating to Canada in 1949. Later, he took up a career in real estate and in 1973 became president of the Canadian Real Estate Association.
In May of 1979, he was elected as the Progressive Conservative member of Parliament for Guelph, but the minority government lost a vote of confidence in Parliament that December. Mr. FISH suffered a heart attack in the closing days of the subsequent election campaign in 1980 and never re-entered federal politics.
A funeral mass is scheduled for today at the Church of Our Lady in Guelph.

AYEARST, Mary Elizabeth (née HECKMAN)
73, of London (formerly of Saint Thomas) died at peace in the arms of her daughter on Thursday, March 9, of multiple myeloma. Born in Orange, California, she moved in infancy to Saskatchewan with her family after a frightening earthquake in California. Eventually they settled in Fingal, when her father joined the Canadian Air Force during the war. Mom had an independent and adventurous spirit and instilled the best of those qualities in her three children. She not only gave us our wings, but the courage to fly. A softie who carried spiders outside to freedom and couldn't bear to trap a cottage mouse, she could also move Heaven and Earth to stand up for her kids or the rights of others. Mom always cheered for the underdog -- with the notable exception of favourite golfer Tiger Woods -- and her great sense of style had her constantly redecorating the homes of Friends and family. Her creative and artistic talents found a natural outlet in pottery and works from her studio adorn homes across Ontario, as gifts and through sales at galleries and charity auctions. In later years she was also a travel guide, escorting tours of the exotic and the mundane and often accompanied by her dear sister June. She took groups to Europe and the U.S. but also slogged through day trips to baseball games and shopping malls. And, it remains a mystery how well she could lead a trip to Peru, Bolivia and Paraguay yet get hopelessly lost with her sister while driving to meet family in Florida. She was never afraid to learn new things and late in life became an Internet junkie, messaging family and Friends around the globe with letters and photos. She even came to own pirated music CDs, for an eclectic taste that ran from Lyle Lovett to B.B. King. Mom treasured summers at her Bogie's Beach cottage, especially the times watching her grandchildren at play. They grew up there in the same carefree way that her own kids did during their summers at her Mom and Dad's home in Indiana -- with tons of adventure and smothered in love. Mom was a stickler for loving us all equally, although in individual ways matched to our personalities. (At Christmas, the value of our presents would be exactly the same to the point of adding a trinket or two to balance things.) She was extremely proud of "how you kids turned out," as she would often say, pointing to Steve and his wonderful family, her cherished relationship with Liz and John's love sent continually from a thousand miles away. Mary is survived by her three children John (Flor-Anne), of Amethyst Harbour near Thunder Bay; Steve (Maura) and their children Josh, Jordan and Danielle, of Barrie; and Liz ROBB (Ted,) of London. Also surviving are brother Glen (Pete) HECKMAN and his wife Estella of Elkton, Florida; and several nieces, nephews and cousins. Cherished friends and soul mates Naomi GIBSON, Audrey THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and Marianne FISHER also survive. Predeceased by her husband John (Pat) in 1982, parents Pete and Beryl HECKMAN, sister June FILLMORE in 2003 and brothers Robert and Jackie in infancy. Cremation has taken place and at Mom's request there will be no funeral service. A visitation to celebrate Mary's life, will be held Saturday, March 18, from 1 to 4 p.m. at Westview Funeral Chapel, 709 Wonderland Rd. N., in London. Mom was very grateful to Liz's employer, a registered charitable organization, for allowing her the flexibility to address Mom's needs during the lengthy illness. In recognition of that and in lieu of flowers, we would be grateful for donations made to: Hutton House Foundation, 654 Wonderland Rd. North, London N6H 3E5. Tax receipts will be issued. Aunt June will be waiting in Heaven to guide her on their next adventure -- but first Mom will probably want to redecorate the place. Rest in peace, dear heart.

Passed away peacefully at home on Saturday, June 10, 2006 in Kingston, Ontario at the age of 90. Andy is predeceased by his beloved wife, Ena, who passed away on May 1, 2006.

He will be greatly missed by his brother James as well as many loving relatives and cherished Friends. Andy is also predeceased by his parents James and Catherine (CLARK,) and his brothers Sam, Al, Jim and sisters Jean (LEES) and Mary (TALLON.) Andy will be remembered for his wisdom, compassion, quiet wit, and his love for his wife and three daughters. Andy emigrated with his family from Hamilton, Scotland as a young boy and settled in Espanola, Ontario. He met and married Ena in Espanola, where they shared 64 wonderful years together. Andy's educational career began at Normal School in North Bay, Ontario. Later, he graduated from Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario with a Bachelor of Arts degree. After only two years of teaching at Espanola Public School, Andy was appointed principal, a position he held for 40 years. Andy's deep commitment to education continued throughout his life. He retired at the age of 63, having spent 56 years of his life, both as a student and then as a member of the staff, in the same school building. It was a wonderful tribute that upon his retirement in 1978, the school was re-named the A.B. Ellis Public School. He was an inspiration to many students and teachers during his long and distinguished career. A memorial Service will be held for Andy and Ena ELLIS on Saturday, June 17, 2006 at 11: 30 a.m. in the United Church of Espanola with Reverend Cory VERMEER- CUTHBERT officiating.

George BAIN, Journalist And Teacher (1920-2006)
He compensated for his minimal education by hard work, deep research and a fastidiousness that won him a string of plum reporting jobs at The Globe, writes Sandra MARTIN. It also won him the ire of Pierre Trudeau after he pilloried the then prime minister for swearing in the House of Commons
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S9
A self-described contrarian, George BAIN was the pre-eminent political columnist of his era, and undoubtedly the most versatile. He was equally adept at skewering prime ministers and crinkling the morning pages of the good grey Globe and Mail with clever playful conceits. Self-educated, debonair and proud -- some might say arrogant -- he was proprietorial about his prose and he rarely brooked interference with either the content or the style of his copy.
Mr. BAIN opened The Globe's first foreign bureau in London and in Washington. He was an early opponent of the War Measures Act when it was proclaimed by Pierre Trudeau as a Draconian defence against a feared separatist insurrection and he later took Mr. Trudeau to task for swearing in the House of Commons and fibbing about it afterward in what came to be known as the "fuddle duddle" incident. That gave Mr. BAIN another first -- the deliberate use of the word "fuck" in a Globe and Mail column.
"He combined the free-spirited moxie of the old school with the thoughtfulness and professionalism of the new," wrote David Hayes in Power and Influence, his 1992 history of The Globe. "He was a master at developing sources, learning that small fry within the departments were often more useful than big-name politicians and bureaucrats."
Intense, and suffering from diverticulitis, a disease of the colon, Mr. BAIN often vomited from stress when he was writing his column. Poking fun at himself, he once mockingly denied the "widespread belief" that "when the BAIN stomach suffers an overdose of acidity, the BAIN wit flowers most brilliantly."
High principled, bristling with integrity and fastidious in his attire, Mr. BAIN was "impossible" to manage, said Clark DAVEY, a former managing editor of The Globe and a friend since the 1950s. "George had his view and the rest of the world could go to hell, which is a great thing in a columnist and a helluva problem in an employee."
Describing Mr. BAIN as passionate about writing, reading, drinking fine vintages, building stone walls and the practise and process of politics, Mr. DAVEY said he will always remember his elegance not only in the way that he dressed and wrote, but in the way he thought about the world. "He made me feel good about myself because I was in the same business."
George Charles Stewart BAIN was the eldest of four children of William Steward and Mary (née ROSS) BAIN. His father was president of the Bain Coal Co. and his mother was a homemaker. The family lived in north Toronto, where George attended Hodgson Public School and then North Toronto Collegiate.
At 16, he wrote a letter to the city editor of the Toronto Daily Star, presenting his services as a "journalist," an offer that was politely declined. Finish the school year, the editor advised, and then come and ask about a summer job as a copy boy. When George showed up in June, the editor was on vacation. So he went to the rival paper, the Toronto Telegram, told them he had come from the Star and was hired right away. "Newspapers are like that. They have a tendency to think the people at the other place are better than the ones they have," he observed later. "In any event, it turned out to be a good move; the Tely was paying $8 for a five-and-a-half-day week, whereas the Star was paying only Two dollars was an important distinction in the mid-1930s, especially since his father had died of a heart attack that summer and his mother passed away in 1939. "We were sort of adrift," said Mr. BAIN's younger brother, Ian, now a retired social worker. "George was on his own and the rest of us were farmed out to relatives." Ian was sent to Winnipeg, and Moyna and Sheila to Scotland.
As for George, he stayed at the Tely and never again saw the inside of a classroom -- at least as a student. For the rest of his working life, he camouflaged his lack of formal education by hard work, deep research and meticulous attention to his literary and sartorial style. Sounding, reading and looking the part of a well-educated professional became a protective armour. He enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1940 and spent four years overseas as a bomber pilot. Assigned to 424 Squadron, he flew Wellingtons over Europe, North Africa, Italy and Sicily, returning to Canada late in 1944. On December 16, he married Marion Jene BREAKEY, whom he had met before the war when both of them were working in downtown Toronto. A former secretary and an accomplished cook, she typed all his book manuscripts and supplied all the recipes for his 1972 book, Champagne is for Breakfast. They had one son, Christopher, who was born in 1953. She died in 1998.
After Mr. BAIN was demobilized, he briefly went back to the Telegram, then joined The Globe and Mail as a reporter in October of 1945. He covered city hall and the provincial legislature at Queen's Park and acquired the nickname Basher after an altercation with a policeman "of considerable height and weight," according to Mr. BAIN's recollection. There is probably no connection between this anecdote and The Globe's decision to send Mr. BAIN to Ottawa as its parliamentary correspondent in the two-person Ottawa bureau in 1952.
In the mid-1950s, while still covering the House of Commons, Mr. BAIN was given a signed editorial column, a very unusual move in those days. "He may not have invented the genre, but he certainly perfected the breezy, shoot-from-the-hip style of political column-writing," Mr. Hayes observed in his book. Mr. BAIN delighted in breaking free from the constraints of the inverted pyramid style of newspaper writing that allowed editors to cut from the bottom and encouraged writers to produce action-packed top-heavy lead paragraphs.
Instead of writing for his editors or his colleagues, Mr. BAIN aimed directly at readers, shaking them awake with provocative ideas and shrewd analysis. He loved turning a phrase, switch-hitting political analysis with lighter fare or in introducing a budget discussion with a verse or two, as in: "Forget for the moment the taxes, / There's some cause for some feeble hosannas: / Pay heed that the budget relaxes/ The tariff that's paid on bananas."
The newspaper sent him to London in 1957 to open its first foreign bureau in a style that his son said belongs to a different era. They lived in Mayfair, he went to private school, they travelled extensively and entertained lavishly. Mr. BAIN arrived in Washington to open The Globe's first American bureau in 1961, just as John F. Kennedy was making American presidential politics glamorous. And he was there to cover the assassination from a Canadian perspective.
Back in Ottawa in 1964, he revived his national affairs column and published many of his older pieces in a book, I've Been Around and Around and Around. The next year, he published Nursery Rhymes to be Read Aloud by Young Parents with Old Children, which won the Stephen Leacock Award for Humour. A Guide to Canadian Parliamentary Procedure came out in 1970.
In journalistic circles, he will always be remembered for his rejection of the War Measures Act after it was proclaimed on October 16, 1970. Such a Draconian law enraged his civil libertarian principles. "What's going on here?" he demanded the next morning in his column. He went on to argue that "either the government previously grossly underestimated the potential of the F.L.Q. and has only recently come into possession of alarming new facts, or its recent extreme actions are the result of panic, which itself is the result of frustration at being unable to do anything about the two kidnapped men."
Four months later, when Mr. Trudeau mouthed an obscenity in the House at John Lundrigan, a Progressive Conservative from Newfoundland, Mr. BAIN was riled again. He had never liked Mr. Trudeau's easy superiority, which probably rankled him because of his own carefully concealed hardscrabble roots. Sneering at "the-snotty-rich-kid-from-Outremont syndrome," Mr. BAIN condemned the prime minister's "covert, behind-the-hand" gesture because it enabled him to "express contempt for the opposition, without harming his image with the sweet little old ladies up and down the land who will insist upon believing that the Emperor is a much-abused man."
Mr. BAIN left The Globe twice. The first time was in 1973. Feeling stale and restless as a five-times-a-week columnist, he accepted an offer from the Toronto Star to become the paper's editorial page editor. "Where's BAIN?" came a letter from Mr. Trudeau, the same prime minister who had refused to give Mr. BAIN an interview all the time he had worked for The Globe, according to Dic DOYLE in his memoir, Hurly-Burly: A Time at The Globe.
Administration not being Mr. BAIN's strength, he wisely extracted a promise of a foreign posting from Martin GOODMAN, then editor of the Star, as an escape tunnel if he and the editorial board proved incompatible -- as it surely did under the idiosyncratic demands of publisher Beland HONDERICH. Before he departed for London as European and Middle East correspondent for The Star, Mr. BAIN left a note for his successor at the editorial board he had probably borrowed from H.L. Mencken: "Writing editorials is like wetting your pants while wearing a blue serge suit. Nobody notices and it leaves you with a warm feeling."
In 1978, he published Letters from Lilac, with illustrations by Duncan MacPHERSON, a collection of the whimsical columns he had written in The Globe as fictional letters from Clem Watkins Jr., a rural Pepys reporting on the state of the nation from the imaginary town of Lilac, Saskatchewan. Mr. BAIN, who wrote five times a week, had invented Clem and Lilac as comic relief for himself and his readers.
He worked at the Star for six years until he resigned to take up an appointment as director of the journalism school at King's College in Halifax in 1979. Writer Stephen Kimber, who still teaches at the school, was one of Mr. BAIN's early hires. He remembers a time, probably in 1980 or 1981, when Clark Davey was visiting Halifax. "George, who had a habit of dropping in on the all-night production sessions for the school's weekly newspaper, dragged him along. They arrived somewhere around 2 in the morning and were quickly put to work writing headlines for The Monitor. That they cheerfully pitched in left a real impression on the students."
Although Mr. BAIN had officially left daily journalism for academe, he kept on writing columns and articles for a number of outlets. In the 1980s and '90s, he wrote regular columns for various outlets, including a media column in Maclean's, features for Saturday Night, a wine column for Air Canada's En Route magazine and a national affairs column in Report on Business magazine. With a change of editorship at the Report On Business magazine, Mr. BAIN was dropped, a decision he took very hard.
Having disappeared from The Globe once before, he was determined to write a final column to mark his exit this time. The Globe wouldn't print it, citing a policy of not publishing final columns, but the Toronto Sun's Douglas FISHER had no such qualms. "The eventual final parting has been in the works for some time in circumstances of extraordinary unpleasantness… and when I sat down this morning… ready to add another to what must be more than 3,000 columns, on this page, I found myself asking, 'What in hell am I doing here?' " In a final word to his readers, he wrote: "I'll be seeing you around. But not here, not here."
Always acerbic, often testy, Mr. BAIN got grumpier as the decades passed. In 1994, he published his most serious book, Gotcha: How the Media Distort the News, a heavily researched critique of the way journalists (mainly from a generation younger than his) covered news and especially political stories. Derived mainly from his media column in Maclean's, Mr. BAIN was particularly incensed about the way broadcast and print journalists had covered the Mulroney government: "The most intense and unrelenting campaign of denigration that any Canadian government has faced at least this side of the Second World War."
Journalists have both power and influence, so having someone with the integrity and credentials of Mr. BAIN take them to task on ethical issues is both useful and instructive. But he seemed incapable of mixing any wine with his vinegar in Gotcha, with the result that he often sounded simply sour.
The BAINs continued to live in Nova Scotia after he retired from teaching at King's, having bought a property and built a home (with a cellar for his vintage wine collection) on the water in Mahone Bay. Carleton University gave him an honorary degree in 1983 and so did King's in 1986. Although he never was appointed to the Senate, like his old boss Dic DOYLE, he was made a member of the Order of Canada in 2001. He travelled to Ottawa for the investiture and made a witty speech, but, by then, he had begun his serious decline into Alzheimer's disease. Old habits continued, and he was still trying to write in the fall of 2004 when he could no longer live on his own and moved into a veterans hospital.
George BAIN was born in Toronto on January 29, 1920. He died in Halifax on May 14. He was 86. He is survived by his son Christopher, two grandchildren and his three younger siblings and their families.

RADOSTITS, Doctor Otto M., C.M., D.V.M.
(August 31, 1934-December 15, 2006)
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Otto Martin RADOSTITS on December 15, 2006. The family is thankful for his many years of wonderful health and his productive life. We are joyful that his courageous battle with kidney cancer is over and he is at peace with his God. Otto was born in Edmonton, the eldest son of Austrian immigrants, Stephen and Hermine RADOSTITS (deceased), who instilled in their four boys the values of the Roman Catholic faith, a strong work ethic and the importance of a good education. Otto's early years on a mixed farm and his high school job at the Blue Cross Animal Hospital in Edmonton were the beginnings of a life long passion for veterinary medicine. Otto received his DVM from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1959 and a Master of Science degree from the University of Saskatchewan (U. of S.) in 1967. As a veterinary educator, clinician and author, Otto had a profound influence on his students, on the establishment and growth of the Western College of Veterinary Medicine at the U. of S. and on his beloved profession. On his retirement in 2002, he was appointed Professor Emeritus and the Western Canadian Association of Bovine Practitioners established the O.M. Radostits Legacy Fund to fund an annual lecture series on bovine medicine. Otto received many awards and honours during his career. He treasured his teaching awards, particularly the Master Teacher award from the U. of S. He was humbled and proud to be made a member of the Order of Canada in 2003. In 2006 he received the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association President's Award to recognize his dedication and contributions to the Association and he also received the Sask Centennial Medal. Otto's wise counsel, mentorship and his numerous authoritative textbooks on large animal medicine were sought after nationally and internationally. Otto loved classical music, attending the Saskatoon Symphony, singing (especially the annual WCVM student Christmas carolling), reading, tennis, biking and long walks, even at -30°. His most special times were spent at family celebrations with his wife and extended family. He loved to debate the issues of the day - his daily reading of the Globe and Mail made him a formidable debater and kept us all informed. Although, his profession allowed him to travel the world, there was no place like home. He was a proud Canadian and always thankful for the many opportunities our country provides for all. Otto leaves his loving and devoted wife, Ruth (Clancy,) six children and their families: Anna ALDERSON (Pryce,) Liam and Erin; Eileen RADOSTITS, Gershon and Sophia Julia RADOSTITS (Richard HONG,) Sebastian and Justin; Stephen RADOSTITS (Robin FISHER), Todd, Mark, Kurt and Joshua; Anita LIVINGSTONE (Brent,) Kayden and Chloe; and Jennifer ARTHURS (Richard,) Brendan and Lauren; his three brothers Ivan (Mary Agnes), Peter (Brenda) and Francis (Pat) and their families; his sister-in-law Velma KELEHER and brother-in-law Michael CLANCY and their families his special cousins Mitzi CROWE (Fred,) Mary METZ (Harry,) Jean EASTWOOD (Kirby) and their families; and the RADOSTITS clan in Chicago. Otto also leaves many Friends and veterinary colleagues around the world. We all will miss deeply his strong presence, his beautiful loud voice and his challenges. Prayer service will be held at Holy Family Church (110 - 104th Street, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan S7N 1M8) on Thursday, December 21, 2006 at 7 p.m. and the Funeral Mass will be held at Holy Family on Friday, December 22, 2006 at 11 a.m. Private family interment at Holy Cross Cemetery in Edmonton to be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Saint Paul's Hospital Foundation Inc. (1702 - 20th St. W, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, S7M 9Z9), Holy Family Church Building Fund or a charity of choice. Arrangements in care of John Schachtel - Mourning Glory Funeral Services, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (306-978-5200).

Marian GRUDEFF, 79: Musical prodigy
Child prodigy made concert debut at 11
Her career included Broadway musicals
By Debra BLACK, Staff Reporter
For Marian GRUDEFF the place she loved to be more than anywhere else in the world was behind a piano, tickling the ivories and singing George Gershwin or Jerome Kern.
The renowned Canadian musician and composer -- whose work was recorded by both Louis Armstrong and Richard Burton -- died November 4 from organ failure at age 79.
Up until very recently, she had continued teaching piano and coaching an amateur vocal group in her home in Toronto.
"She was a perfectionist and it was something she learned as a child from a very young age being groomed to be a concert pianist," recalls her son Christopher McDONALD, a Toronto restaurateur.
"She did something that was very rare musically. She could play the piano and chitchat at the same time. I asked her one day while we were messing around if she could improvise a fugue and read The New Yorker out loud at the same time. She pulled it off."
GRUDEFF, a Toronto native whose parents moved here from Bulgaria, was a child prodigy, making her concert debut at 11 with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra at Massey Hall. She performed Liszt's Hungarian Fantasy on the piano. Behind the conductor's baton was Sir Ernest MacMillan -- the godfather of Canadian music.
GRUDEFF went on to have an outstanding concert career, performing at Town Hall and Carnegie Hall in New York in the 1950s as well as concerts in Europe. She eventually gave up touring and became the musical director of Toronto's Spring Thaw -- a musical comedy revue.
There she met Ray JESSEL, a musician and composer, who eventually became her writing partner. The two of them wrote the music for Broadway show Baker Street in 1964. She became the first Canadian to write a Broadway show.
GRUDEFF and JESSEL also wrote Hellzapoppin' for Expo '67 in Montreal, which starred Soupy Sales, and the musical Life Can Be -- Like Wow, based on Le Bourgeois gentilhomme by Molière, for the Charlottetown Festival in 1969.
In the '70s she briefly resumed her concert career and taught at the Royal Conservatory of Music before teaching privately. "She taught hundreds of people piano from 1971 on," said McDONALD. "Basically she devoted herself to piano teaching. My mother became their friend, their mentor, their confidante."
The picture Friends and family paint is of a dynamic, enthusiastic woman devoted to her art. "Marian was an immensely enthusiastic person. … but she would never let me get away with second-best," said JESSEL, her long-time musical collaborator who now performs as a cabaret singer in New York.
"She was an impeccable musician and also was very fussy about the way our words went. She was magical when she was at the piano singing the songs of Rodgers and Hart.
"She was fun-loving and loved a good joke. We had a circle of Friends when Baker Street was on and we would gather at the Russian Tea Room. Often she would be one of the livelier members."
"She had very high standards so she was demanding," said Erika FISHER, a family physician from Toronto who was a pupil of GRUDEFF's and later became a friend. "She recognized talent and supported that as much as possible," said FISHER.
"The wonderful thing about Marian… she would always gravitate to a piano no matter where she went… she would play and sing and lead anybody who wanted to join her. That's where she came to life.
"She was a gifted, feisty, wonderful person with a big personality. She was magnetic."
GRUDEFF leaves her son and her sister Lillian GRUDEFF.

FISK, Fredrick David
Born March 11, 1916 in Edmonton, Alberta, passed away peacefully at home in Nanaimo, British Columbia on March 12, 2006. In life and in death, Fred was surrounded by loving family and Friends. He is survived by his wife Blanche; daughters Lynn, Mary, Jennifer and Michelle, and son David; by grandchildren Michael, Stephen, Deanne, Stephanie, Rebecca, Tiffany, Katie, and Max; and great-grandchildren Courtney, Sara, Michaela, Jack, Julia, William, Brady, Jake, Ty, and Matilda; and by his siblings George and Myrtle. Fred's first love was flight. He served in the War as an instructor of navigation. After the War, Fred joined MacKenzie Air Service, which became Canadian Pacific Airlines. From flying north out of Edmonton in unheated bush planes to the big jets of CP Air, his love of aircraft and the people involved was one of the great joys of his life. He was regarded nationally and internationally as an outstanding member of the CP Air Group. His enduring love was Blanche, whom he met and married in 1942. Blanche, Fred, and their family lived in Edmonton, Winnipeg, Charlottetown, White Horse, Tokyo and Vancouver. Fred loved the adventure of travel, other cultures held his deep respect. He had a particular love for Japan, where his special understanding and interest helped to develop the Orient Route for Canadian Pacific. Fred was devoted to family, Friends, and travel. He corresponded with, and visited Friends from all over the world for many years. Fred had a warm, quiet, but sparkling presence and wonderful sense of humor. He modeled honesty and uprightness of character. His sincerity, tact, intelligence, wit, and prodigious memory, made him an inspiring and cherished father, husband, grandfather, great-grandfather, and the very best of Friends. Dad asked that these words be said at his service: 'To lose a friend is the greatest of all evils, but endeavor rather to rejoice that you possessed him, than to mourn his loss.' Seneca Thanks to Doctor KAZANOWSKI, Fred's wonderful family physician, to the Hospice nurses who helped to support Fred's wish to die at home, and to Celia Hopkins, his devoted and beloved home care nurse. He could not have been better cared for. As expressions of sympathy, donations may be made to Unicef or Save the Children, or the charity of one's choice.

KAUFMAN, Donal Conrad
Don and Romayne KAUFMAN have two combined families of ten children and we would all like to take this opportunity to express our deepest appreciation and thanks to everyone for the care you have shown us, through your prayers, kind thoughts, food, phone calls, sympathy cards, beautiful flowers and generous donations and other tokens of goodwill and remembrance. To many of you, who took time out of your day to come to the funeral home and express your sympathy to our big family. To Rev. Charles SCOTT for his kindly prayers and ministrations -- not only at Don's funeral, but 15 years ago, when he married us. To Mark BURNS of Georgetown, who uplifted us all with his very enjoyable singing. To Deanne and Carolyn from Westview Funeral Chapel who helped us through all the preparations and paperwork with always a fresh coffee on hand! Also to Sue, from Taste of Heaven, for a delicious home baked reception after the service! To Silvana at Saint Peter's Cemetery. For support and encouragement from Doctor FISMAN, Barry SANDERS and all the nursing staff at London Psychiatric Hospital, who were gentle and kind to Don and helped him through to the end. Many of you who had known Don, knew that he was a very special person, who loved life, was so kind and caring and willing to help anyone who needed it. It is comforting to know that he had such a positive impact on so many people. We wish to show our gratitude and appreciation for the kindness shown to all of us at this time of sorrow. Sincerely, Romayne and our 10 children.
