FOLEY, Christopher Columba
Passed away at home, on Good Friday, April 14, 2006, at the age of 80, in the High Park neighbourhood where he lived for more than 40 years. Christopher was born in Kells, County Meath, Ireland on May 10, 1925. He was the beloved father of Margaret FOLEY and devoted husband to his late wife, Anne Teresa, née CLIFFORD. He is survived by his loving wife Marie Terese, née BONENFANT. Christopher was known affectionately as Christy by his wide circle of Friends, many of whom shared his passion for Irish culture. His was a life marked by a devotion to those institutions that nurtured the values he held dear, among them, the Catholic Church, the St. Vincent de Paul Society and numerous Irish social organizations. Although he moved away from his native Ireland as a teenager, Christy carried his roots with him wherever he went. He flew to Canada in 1948 on one of the early trans-Atlantic flights in search of greater opportunity. It was in Toronto that his enterprising spirit rose to the fore. Christy worked for C.N. Rail and the Royal York Hotel. Saving enough to buy his first home within six months, Christy turned it into yet another opportunity - becoming a landlord and giving other young Irish men a roof over their heads. He worked with the Metro Toronto Waterworks Department for 30 years and continued a close relationship with fellow retirees through the rest of his life. Family, work and his many community activities filled his days. Sickness did nothing to quell his stubborn streak nor dash his great love of travel. Christy will be sorely missed and fondly remembered. He leaves behind his cherished sisters-in-law Margaret HERRING, Evelyn FOLEY and longtime family friend, Mildred CREGAN. He is also survived by his loving nephews and nieces and their families: Ray FOLEY, Ann PALEN, Brian and Thomas HEGARTY, Thomas CARROLL, Peter, Gerard and Michael O'LOUGHLIN and Angela BYRNE. Christy, the youngest of six children born to Margaret SMITH and Thomas FOLEY, is predeceased by all his siblings, Kathleen, Gerty, May, Lily and brother Paddy. Special thanks to his doctor, Eckhart SCHWEIHOFER and Margaret GORECKI, the home care worker who became such a good friend. Visitation for our beloved Christy will be held Tuesday, April 18 and Wednesday, April 19 from 2-4 and 7- 9 p.m. at the Turner and Porter Yorke Chapel, 2357 Bloor Street West, Toronto, at Windermere Ave., east of Jane subway. Funeral Mass will be held Thursday, April 20 at 10: 30 a.m. at Our Lady of Sorrows Church, 3055 Bloor Street West. In lieu of flowers, donations in the name of Christopher Foley to the St. Vincent de Paul Society or ShareLife would be much appreciated.

GALLAGHER, Patricia "Patsy" Marie (née YOUNG)
Patsy was born on November 20, 1939 in Vanguard, Saskatchewan. She died in Regina on June 19, 2006 of complications after surgery for lung cancer. She was predeceased by her loving parents, Ardell (1979) and Eunice (1988) YOUNG.

Patsy was a committed trade unionist, feminist and political activist throughout her life. She received her teacher 's diploma at the University of Saskatchewan and taught school for two years in Northern Manitoba and Regina. In the 1960's, Patsy lived and worked at various jobs in Ottawa. In 1964, she returned to Regina to work at the Students' Union on the Regina Campus where she became active in the Canadian Union of Public Employees, Local 1975. Patsy was Executive Assistant to the President of the Saskatchewan Federation of Labour from 1976 to 1982.

Patsy retired from Saskatchewan Government Employees' Union in 2001. Patsy was active in left politics from an early age. She was a member of the Saskatchewan Waffle and was on the editorial board of Next Year Country. When the formal trade union movement wouldn't make room for a broad-based women's committee, she and other like-minded feminist trade unionists, formed Saskatchewan Working Women. She worked endlessly for the rights of working women; fighting for publicly funded childcare, equal pay for work of equal value, and effective labour and collective bargaining laws. Patsy was one of the first female trade union leaders in Canada and mentored many women in trade union politics. She won many important battles for Saskatchewan Government Employees' Union members. During her retirement, she was active in the Council of Canadians, Briar Patch magazine, the Saskatchewan Federation of Union Retirees and the Saskatchewan Health Coalition.

HERSEY o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2006-03-02 published
Frank HERSEY, Soldier And Civic Politician (1905-2006)
In 1932, he was a young army signaler borrowed by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in its hunt for the Mad Trapper of Rat River. For weeks, he and a posse of about 20 chased a desperate gunman across the frozen wilderness
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Toronto -- Frank HERSEY was the last surviving member of a posse that tracked down the Mad Trapper of Rat River during a 240-kilometre chase along the Arctic Circle in 1932.
A party of more than 20 Mounties, soldiers, natives and trappers tracked Albert JOHNSON for weeks in -40° temperature. By the time the trek ended in the middle of a frozen river, two men were dead and two others were badly wounded. One of the wounded was Mr. HERSEY.
It all began with a complaint by trappers that JOHNSON was interfering with their trap lines. According to author Dick North, JOHNSON was probably Johnny JOHNSON, a convicted murderer from North Dakota, who set foot in Fort MacPherson, Northwest Territories, on July 9, 1931. After a series of complaints, Royal Canadian Mounted Police constables Alfred King and Joe Bernard set out in late December of 1931 to question JOHNSON. The next day, they found a cabin he was believed to use, but when one of the officers peered through a window, someone blocked it with a burlap sack.
The officers retreated and returned several days later with three additional men.
"Are you in there, Mr. JOHNSON?" Constable King shouted through the door. The fugitive responded by firing a bullet through a hole in the door, badly wounding the officer. The posse retreated, travelling 20 hours to get treatment for him.
Several days later, an even bigger party returned to lay siege to the cabin. After 15 hours of gunplay, a bomb was hurled onto the roof and the cabin collapsed. When the posse went looking for a corpse, JOHNSON stood up from a fox hole and started shooting. The siege had failed. JOHNSON disappeared into the wilderness and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police returned to Aklavik, Northwest Territories, to assemble a more sophisticated posse.
It was then that Frank HERSEY joined. A former high-school teacher from New Brunswick, he had joined the Canadian Army in 1927, spending six years in Aklavik as a communications expert, helping to construct and operate a radio station that broadcast to Edmonton. As part of the Royal Canadian Signal Regiment, he had vast experience in the North, became familiar with explosives and was a crack rifleman. He was also an experienced musher.
"My dad was chosen because he had the fastest dog team… seven huskies," said Mr. HERSEY's daughter Sheila. "He had the lead team. He was so familiar with the North and good on tracking. He was single in those days and he would always want to be doing something. He bred his dogs with wolves."
Notwithstanding his competence with dog teams, Mr. HERSEY's involvement in the manhunt marked the first time two-way radio was used by police in Canada. Another first was the use of an airplane in such an operation. While the posse travelled via dogsleds, First World War flying ace Wop MAY, an experienced bush pilot, searched from the clouds in a Bellanca monoplane equipped with skis. As a young pilot during the war, it was MAY whom the legendary Red Baron (Manfred von Richthofen) was pursuing when the German ace was downed and killed.
The search for JOHNSON was a formidable assignment. The fugitive eluded the posse in what was the coldest winter on record, using wilderness skills that seemed almost superhuman. Strapping on his snowshoes and weighed down by a backpack full of pots, pans, household goods and food, the stocky, muscular man of 35 was still capable of travelling two miles for every mile covered by the dogsleds.
At one point, the posse's advance party stumbled on a hut to be met by gunfire. JOHNSON scrambled behind a fallen tree and a two-hour interval unfolded in which nothing happened. Finally, Constable Edgar Millen became concerned that JOHNSON would escape and moved closer. JOHNSON fired several shots, striking Constable Millen in the heart. It was Mr. HERSEY who next day retrieved the body.
The pursuit went on for weeks until on February 17, Wop MAY spotted snowshoe tracks on the Eagle River and radioed Mr. HERSEY. Within hours, some of the posse caught up to JOHNSON. Going down on one knee, Mr. HERSEY shot at the desperado three times at a range of about 80 metres.
"I didn't want to kill JOHNSON. I have trouble killing flies," Mr. HERSEY once told The Quarterly, an Royal Canadian Mounted Police magazine. "I'd hit his back three times… and down he'd come and he was just disgusted with me. He reached behind and got the rifle and, bang. He hit me dead centre. I had fallen and gone over backward and down in the snow. He fired three more times at me as I lay in the snow and didn't hit me once. [I was hit] through my left knee."
Meanwhile, JOHNSON seemed untouched until finally a freak shot changed everything. An Royal Canadian Mounted Police bullet found the spare ammunition JOHNSON carried in his backpack and it exploded. JOHNSON was seriously wounded and the posse moved in for the kill. The fatal shot was a bullet in the spine. By some accounts, it was the last of 17 bullets found lodged in his body. Police recovered $2,410 in cash on him, along with gold fillings from corpses, a pocket compass, a razor, knife, fish hooks, a dead squirrel and a dead bird.
With the mission accomplished, Mr. HERSEY's life was on the line. The only man hurt in the final shootout, he was scooped up by MAY and flown to hospital in Aklavik.
"Without Mr. MAY's quick action, my dad would never have made it," his daughter Sheila said. "He was shot through the knee and the bullet then went into an elbow and into his chest. They found it embedded in flesh in his back."
The JOHNSON adventure spawned several books, including those written by Mr. North, several television productions and a fictionalized movie Death Hunt, starring Charles Bronson and Lee Marvin. Recently, it was featured on the History Channel's Manhunt series.
"Frank would always carry the bullet with him, the bullet from JOHNSON's gun," Royal Canadian Mounted Police chaplain and historian Gerry McMillan said. "Hollywood made a movie a number of years ago about the Mad Trapper but it was poorly done and far from being true to the account."
Mr. HERSEY remained in Aklavik for another year before he was transferred. Over time, he received postings to such places as Kingston, Montreal, Alberta, and Barrie, Ontario, where he eventually settled.
Drawing on his experiences in the North, the army called on him in early 1946 to participate in Exercise Muskox, a trial run to determine if snowmobiles could replace dogsleds. The 2,900-kilometre expedition ended with a reception in Edmonton in May. It was also during his army days that Mr. HERSEY had the great fortune of winning $157,000 in the Irish Sweepstakes, exceptional coin for those days. During the Second World War, he served in the army's Signal Corps Armoured Division, landing in Sicily. Somewhere along the way in Italy, he got to meet the Pope.
Mr. HERSEY retired from the army in 1955 at the age of 50 and settled in Barrie, where he became involved in local activities. Mr. HERSEY served on Barrie City Council for 16 years. He was voted Barrie's Citizen of the Year in 1960 and was a member of the local Rotary Club for close to 50 years. He was also a passionate curler until his 80s, often lying about his age so he wouldn't be passed over for bonspiels.
"If I tell them my real age, they won't pick me," he would often say.
Frank HERSEY was born on August 6, 1905, in Fredericton, New Brunswick He died in his sleep on January 1, 2006, in Elmvale, near Barrie, Ontario He was 100. He leaves his daughter, Sheila. He was predeceased by his wife, Olive, and his son, David.

Arthur JOHNS, 70: Engineer mentored young colleagues
He 'gave a lot to the profession'
Remembered as loving family man
By Thulasi SRIKANTHAN, Staff Reporter
It was a make-or-break moment for Arthur JOHNS.
He was 29 years old and relatively fresh on the engineering scene when his bosses told him he was going to be involved, in a huge way, in the biggest job their company had done in its 20-year history.
The Medical Sciences building at the University of Toronto needed to be built and someone was going to have to design its structure.
Years later, JOHNS would say it was because he was so "scared to death" that the project went so well. JOHNS would go on from that assignment to become one of Canada's most distinguished engineers, leaving his mark everywhere from the Gardiner Expressway to the Health Sciences complex at Memorial University in Saint_John's. Along the way, he would pick up the profession's top honours, receiving gold medals from the Professional Engineers of Ontario and The Ontario Society of Professional Engineers and the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers.
On October 24, the man who rose from a child of the Depression era to become the president of Morrison Hershfield died one day after his 70th birthday following a nine-month fight with multiple myeloma.
His death, though expected from cancer of the immune system's plasma cells, devastated his family, who described him as a loving man who would do anything for his family.
"He was my strength," said his son, Scott JOHNS. " You couldn't ask for a better father."
At work, colleagues are still grieving the loss of the man who guided the firm from a small Canadian company to a North American entity. A grief counsellor was brought in because JOHNS, who stayed on after retirement as a special consultant, was considered a mentor to many at the company.
"He was a passionate man who gave a lot to the profession," said Catherine KARAKATSANIS, senior vice-president at Morrison Hershfield Ltd.
"Because he was such a brilliant engineer and so strategic, he could solve technical problems through innovations and ingenious adaptations of existing engineering problems. These innovations advanced the practice of engineering in Canada."
JOHNS was born in Toronto on October 23, 1936, to Charles JOHNS and Josephine TEMPLETON, two immigrants from England and Ireland. He was the youngest of two children.
Though JOHNS didn't start off as the most studious lad, he buckled down to study as the years passed, becoming the first in his family to go to university.
"They were very proud of that," said his wife and high-school sweetheart, Ruth JOHNS.
It was when he was studying at University of Toronto that he would meet the men who would change his life: Carson MORRISON, Mark HUGGINS and Charlie HERSHFIELD. The University of Toronto professors would go on to hire the youngster at their company, where JOHNS would remain for more than 40 years.
"Those were his mentors and heroes," said his son, Scott JOHNS. "I think he was so successful in that company because he wanted their names to continue in the engineering industry."
Though he gave his heart and soul to the job, his wife, Ruth, remembered him as a very involved family man.
"He made time and he was always home in time to put the kids to bed and read them stories, help bath them."
If a high school soccer match or hockey game was being played, JOHNS made sure he made it out to see his children.
"He was always there for us, and I know he was incredibly busy with work," said his son. "Work was always important but I think family was first.
"He always made time for those important things."
It was a love that continued even as he grew older and become a grandfather.
"He would come to my son's baseball games or T-ball game; he came even though it was a 45-minute drive," his son added.
This was evident even after JOHNS became sick, his son said.
"His concern through this entire illness was my mom and how it was affecting our lives," he said.
"If he wasn't going to get back to where he was and couldn't do all the things he wanted to do, then he didn't want to be around because he felt he was a burden for my mother," he said. "Right up to the end, he was very unselfish."
Though engineering and his family were his primary passions, JOHNS was also an artist who loved to draw pictures of people and events.
"He did pictures of all of us at some point," said his son.
At work, JOHNS rose through the ranks quickly, inspired by a belief that engineering was about public service. Part of the reason for his father's success, the younger JOHNS said, is the way he treated people.
"I think it was the way he did business, with integrity and fairness. He wasn't a back-stabbing person, he didn't fight his way up the ladder. He did it with integrity and respect.
"He made decisions for the right reasons, not just to make money."
JOHNS also believed a key to success was being alert at serendipitous moments. A work colleague offered this statement JOHNS wrote some time ago: "In order for serendipity to take place, people have to have their antenna up and tuned in at all times, because 'valuable and agreeable' things are often fleeting opportunities. Sometimes, they just make you feel really good; other times, they can change your whole life, or, in a corporation such as Morrison Hershfield, they can create growth or new business opportunities."
JOHNS' style helped him win many fans at the firm, said colleague KARAKATSANIS.
"He always took the time to help, listen and pass on his knowledge and experience," she said. "He truly was a remarkable person, a very rare person."
In his later years, JOHNS was sought after to provide expert testimony at trials.
An annual Arthur B. Johns Scholarship is being created at the University of Toronto to assist a civil engineering student in need.
