Chris DOTY had passion for London
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter, Sun., February 5, 2006
Chris DOTY, the historian whose plays and documentary films chronicled London's past, was found dead in his home after taking his own life. He was 39. A staple on the local cultural scene, DOTY's death comes just before the latest play he wrote and produced, about London-bred pot activist Marc Emery, was to end its week-long downtown debut run last night.
"No one knows what he was battling… Forget about the ending and remember all the great things that led up to that," said Grant DOTY, Chris's younger brother.
It was his love of his hometown that defined Chris DOTY, those who knew him best said.
"Because he loved London so much, he wanted to find things that were interesting about it and promote it," Grant said.
Once called an "incisive, opinionated dynamo" by The Free Press, DOTY started his own production company, Doty Docs, in 1995 and found a niche in telling London's all-but-forgotten stories.
His work included award-winning documentaries on the Grand Theatre, London's disastrous 1937 flood and the 1939 royal visit.
He also focused on more commercial fare, including a film Chronicling the London Knights. In the past year, he wrote The Donnelly Trial, about the famed local slaying of the Donnellys, and Citizen Marc, about Emery's formative years in London.
Reached in Vancouver yesterday, Emery -- who first met DOTY decades ago and saw him last week at the play's premiere -- was stunned by the news.
"He had many movies left in him to make and many, many more plays," said Emery, who remembers DOTY as an intelligent, young customer at his City Lights bookshop.
"He was a wonderful person and a great credit to the London community. I'm honoured that his last work was the play about me."
John GERRY, who directed Citizen Marc, heard of DOTY's death Friday night from Jason RIP, the play's co-writer. A pre-arranged cast and crew party let all involved talk about DOTY hours later, Gerry said.
"It was pretty tough," he said. He expressed enormous respect for DOTY's work, calling him -- in reference to a famed U.S. documentary film maker -- "the Ken Burns of London. He presented (stories) the best way possible, and the most honest way possible."
The cast and crew "talked… about the incredible amount of spirit he gave (London)."
The final show of Citizen Marc's week-long run went ahead last night, Gerry said. "I just think, you know, out of respect for Chris -- this was his show. The actors, they wanted to do it."
Another DOTY project was the annual Brickenden Awards recognizing achievement in London's arts community. The latest ceremony was held Monday.
"Chris was a perfectionist. He always had high standards and expectations for every work," brother Grant said. "Myself and my mom were so proud of him. All the accolades he got, he deserved every bit."
Visitation is tomorrow at the John T. Donohue Funeral Home, 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. The funeral is Tuesday at Metropolitan United Church, 11 a.m.

GERSHATER o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.toronto_star 2006-11-16 published
Raziel GERSHATER, 67: Radiologist
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
When the doctor was dancing the tango, his eyes were closed, his concentration intense and complete and joyous, his smile contemplative.
"The hyper attention, that look on his face, it was really extraordinary to watch, like a moving meditation," said long-time friend Bernie SCHIFF, a former professor and until recently, publisher of The Walrus magazine.
And so very much like the way radiologist Raziel GERSHATER, 67, conducted his entire life.
His partner was his wife, Jeanne. "She was the dancer," SCHIFF noted, "but Raziel was the passionate tango scholar."
Two years ago, after GERSHATER had been operated on for the first reoccurrence of his bladder cancer, the couple signed up for a tango tour in Buenos Aires, dancing every day for 10 days. He had always loved music, buying his first classical recording at age 13, never missing a tango performance in Toronto, but this was a reaffirmation for him. Life had not been easy since the unexplained death in 1999 of his only son, David, in Addis Ababa.
"It was his greatest tragedy. He never transcended it but he was a big enough man to encompass it," said his friend, oncologist Mark GREENBERG. " For a year or more he was raging against it, but eventually in time allowing love and life back into a David-less world."
"He wore that tragedy in his body, I think," said SCHIFF. " Inside he may have felt he wanted to give up but he had a family and he had Friends and he persisted in style. Going out dancing in Buenos Aires is hardly a defeated person."
The GERSHATERs had taken up the tango only a few years ago. They preferred the Argentinian version, classical, formal, elegant, complex. And they were good, very good, at it. "They were learners but there were moments they were magical to watch," SCHIFF said.
But then GERSHATER was very good at everything he did.
"Not just competency," said GREENBERG. " Mastery. There was nothing he did that he didn't know everything there was to know."
Squash? " The racquet grew out of his hand," GREENBERG said. Tennis? He was a regular at Mayfair West, three times a week, for two-hour sessions starting at 6 a.m. -- and his backhand was gorgeous. He owned a collection of videos of every major tennis match. Skiing? South African-born and raised, GERSHATER took it up after watching Jean-Claude Killy storm the 1968 Olympics. He took lessons, bought and studied videos and was soon conquering double Black Diamond hills.
"He took great pleasure in doing things well," said his wife.
Passionate about his profession, he was chief radiologist at North York General Hospital for 20 of his 35 years there and the man responsible for first introducing three-dimensional imaging and a computerized patient archiving and communicating system technology previously found in only a few teaching hospitals into community hospitals.
"He was a visionary, so aggressive in acquiring new technology, sometimes even before the teaching hospitals," said Hassan DEIF, a radiologist who worked with him at the hospital and in their private practice for 25 years.
"He was a broader thinker who was trying to prove a point that Magnetic Resonance Imaging was a mainstream technology that should be in a community hospital," said Ontario Association of Radiologists executive director Ray FOLEY. " Today that's ho-hum, but 12 years ago this was almost revolutionary."
GERSHATER took his scholarly journals to bed with him at night and would sit on the deck at his cottage reading three medical books at a time.
"In radiology you have to know everything about the whole body and what procedures have been done and what should be done. It's very inclusive. His career suited him," said Jeanne.
His daughters were married and also successful in their careers Tal GERSHATER is a high school math teacher and Elize GERSHATER a doctor who decided to follow in his footsteps, much to his delight, and enrol in a radiology residency.
His children were always his priority.
"He always told us we were the most important and that we could call him any time at work. So we did," Tal recalled.
He was, she added, a confidante to many.
GERSHATER had everything, it seems -- except an explanation for his son David's death.
The 10 officials who met them at the airport back in '99 in Ethiopia told them their son had jumped from his hotel room and deflected all their questions. But nothing felt right about their conclusion that their son had been suicidal and unstable. It turned out it hadn't happened at the hotel where their son had been staying, but instead at a rooftop bar, where, they learned, some journalists were said to have been pushed to their deaths, although the official version was they, too, had jumped. In fact, it was known in Ethiopia as an "execution post," Jeanne said.
David GERSHATER was 31, a freelance writer and social activist, a young man with a probing intellect but scattered interests who had never really found a place or profession to stick to. He was researching, seeking the truth about aspects of the war in Eritrea and the floppy disk containing his writings had been stolen from his backpack a few days before his death. His father had always wanted to know what had really gone on.
A year after his son died, GERSHATER was diagnosed with the bladder cancer that eventually killed him.
He worked until the beginning of this year. By the summer he was very weak, but he was determined to live to meet Tal's first child and his second grandchild.
"He kept my due date as a mantra and made it to meet my son David, and even managed to come out to the hospital the day the baby was born," she recalled.
"Even though my Dad could barely get out of bed, he somehow found the strength that day to get down the stairs and into a cab to come and see us. His smile that day lit up our hearts."
Three weeks later, on Sept.2, he died at home, listening to a new recording of a piano concerto by Mozart.

OWENS, Rev. Joseph
By Lloyd GERSON, Page A18
Teacher, priest. Born April 17, 1908, in Saint John, New Brunswick Died October 31, 2005, in Toronto, of Alzheimer's disease, aged Rev. Joseph OWENS was educated at Saint Mary's College, Brockville, Ontario, and at seminaries in Woodstock, Ontario, and Montreal. He was ordained a priest in the religious community of Redemptorists in 1933. He received a licentiate in Medieval Studies from the Pontifical Institute of Medieval Studies in Toronto in 1946 and a doctorate in 1951.
Father OWENS was an avid hockey player, swimmer, and cribbage devotee well into his 70s. He relished summers in New Brunswick with his large extended family and used to spend days swimming the lake near his family and home, "docking" at what seemed to be the liveliest shoreline parties. Father OWENS's facility with languages was well known; he was once sent to serve for a brief time at a Ukrainian parish in Alberta. Jokingly asked by a colleague whether, while there, he learned any Ukrainian, Father OWENS replied, "No, not really. Just enough to give sermons and hear confessions."
A man of both deep personal piety and intellectual rigour, he saw only continuity and no discord between his religion and philosophy. His philosophical studies and teaching never collided with his faith because he did not see his faith as an impediment to the possession of the truth. His shyness and reserve only pertained to the ephemeral particularities of life; when colleagues and students engaged him in what he regarded as the most serious matters, he was utterly transparent and open.
Father OWENS's voluminous writings on the philosophies of Aristotle and Saint Thomas Aquinas led to his nearly universal recognition as one of the world's great experts on this philosophical tradition. His doctoral dissertation, published as The Doctrine of Being in the Aristotelian Metaphysics (1951) is still today, more than 50 years later, regarded as a standard work in the field. Following that initial work were more books and many scholarly articles and reviews. Long before the days of personal computers (and even after their inception,) Father OWENS produced virtually all of these works on an antique portable manual typewriter in a tiny, sparse office in the Institute of Medieval Studies building. He was always available for a chat or a philosophical comment, but a visitor leaving could hear the typewriter tapping again even before the door closed.
Father OWENS viewed the marvels of creation and the gift of reason as seamlessly connected. At the Toronto parish church where he lived and served during his entire time in the city, the members of that community found themselves one winter with a broken boiler and a potentially huge repair bill. Father OWENS took off for the Toronto Public Library in search of a book on boilers and their repair. First, he focused his penetrating intellect on the theory; then, he applied a very compact muscular frame to its application. A disconcertingly short time later, all was well with the boiler and Father OWENS was back immersed in the intricacies of Thomistic metaphysics.
In 1954, Father OWENS became a fellow of the Pontifical Institute of Medieval Studies and a professor in the Department of Philosophy, University of Toronto. He retired from that department in 1973, although he continued to teach. OWENS held many other appointments in his career.
There was no room in Father OWENS's character for false modesty about his standing in the academic world since he was completely filled with the real thing. He knew what he knew, and above all that his real achievements were nothing if they were not service to the good with which he longed to be filled. When disease removed his memory and his intellectual powers several years before his death, one could then see even more clearly how he had succeeded.
Lloyd was a colleague of Father OWENS.

School official dies in crash
By Canadian Press, Sun., December 24, 2006
Waterloo -- Waterloo region educators are mourning the loss of the local district school board's education director, who died after his car struck a horse.
Bill GERTH, 51, died Friday in a Toronto hospital, hours after his car struck a Clydesdale that had escaped from a farm and was running loose on a road in Wellesley Township, northwest of Waterloo.
GERTH had been alone in the car at the time of the Thursday crash on a dark stretch of road.
The horse was killed.
Board chairperson Andrea MITCHELL says GERTH was a wonderful director who moved the board forward in many ways, and that he would be missed.
GERTH was a superintendent with the Avon Maitland District school board, north of London, before the took the Waterloo job.
He lived in Belgrave, about 10 kilometres southwest of Wingham, and leaves a wife, son and daughter.

He was a loving man, whose opinions and values always remained uncompromised. He loved us and our mother, and we loved him. He was inspired by literature, which remained to the end one of his greatest passions. He used to read to us when we were younger. Here's a verse from a poem he admired and shared with us: And indeed there will be time For the yellow smoke that slides along the street, Rubbing its back upon the window-panes; There will be time, there will be time To prepare a face to meet the faces that you meet; There will be time to murder and create, And time for all the works of days and hands That lift and drop a question on your plate Time for you and time for me, And time yet for a hundred indecisions, And for a hundred visions and revisions, Before the taking of toast and tea. ~ T.S. Eliot On-line condolences and donations at www.whattamfuneralhome.com
