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.

LAMBERT, Violet Grace
By Kim HUGHES, Page A14
Mother, grandmother, great-grandmother. Born July 26, 1910, in Toronto. Died September 3, 2005 of natural causes in Wasaga Beach, Ontario, aged 95.
The day my darling grandmother was buried was radiant and mild, the kind of sparkling September afternoon that mocks summer's heat and autumn's menace and then hangs there just a moment before thinning into memory.
My grandmother's life was a succession of simple but acknowledged joys: travels abroad and trips on the streetcar to shop for new shoes and lipstick at Simpson's downtown. Spontaneous at-home organ recitals. Meeting and marrying my grandfather and the eventual birth of her children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
She wished for death often near the end. That was her mantra: to go to sleep and never wake up. She was done with living, simply, unassailably done. She had seen what she needed to see and felt what she needed to feel and she was bored to tears at not being able to knit or bake or comprehend the television any more. Who could blame her really, except that such certainty is awful for others to bear. It leaves no room for self-pity.
Born the middle child of three in 1910, she grew up on Springhurst Avenue in Toronto's Parkdale, a neighbourhood as full of contradictions then as now. Her father and brother were intensely artistic, painting for pleasure and profit, yet my grandmother's passion was music. Music and her own poetry, which she added as greeting-card embellishments and dismissed as sentimental detritus (not that it was).
There were lowlights: moving away from her blood relatives to Kitchener as a lonely 19-year-old newlywed. The death of her husband to cancer many years later in 1978 and the sudden realization that her archaic rearing ensured she didn't even know how to pay a bill on her own. Romantic rebirth through a new companion that led to loneliness and heartbreak once again.
But damn, she was funny -- even when a scrim of sadness tucked in around her shoulders. Her self-deprecating tone never wavered and it was, I think, an outreach of her humility. She simply couldn't believe that a woman of middling education and status (though lovely looks) could inspire us so much. Yet she did, every day.
She captured us with tales of attending silent films. She howled remembering Fluffy the cat coming home after tomcatting through the streets, ears torn and coat matted. She remembered her senior citizen's club where she handmade tiny perfect stuffed kangaroos that sold at Christmas bazaars. She remembered washing my mouth out with soap as a child in a rare fit of pique after I sassed her. And she always remembered my grandfather. Even in the darkest days of his illness, he remained the love of her life.
This glorious woman who lived 95 years, rousing in me not just love but absolute devotion, would have appreciated the abundant ironies her funeral day held: the tears despite the sunshine my sadness over losing her versus her joy at finally transcending her feeble body.
A few weeks before my grandmother's death, I visited a Tarot card reader as I do from time to time when everyday things make so little sense that mysticism seems like a reasonable alternative. As always, I asked how my Nanny was really doing even though, until the very end, I could pretty much ask her myself and count on getting an honest answer.
Leanne, the psychic, consulted the cards: "She has 18 people waiting for her on the other side," she enthused.
If even one of those 18 loves her a fraction as much as I do, she's doing fine.
Kim HUGHES is Violet LAMBERT's granddaughter.

PALOHEIMO, Jyri Erkki
Professor Emeritus University Of Toronto
It is with sorrow that we announce the passing of Jyri Erkki PALOHEIMO on March 29th, 2006. After a long struggle with cancer, he passed away peacefully surrounded by family and Friends at his home. Doctor PALOHEIMO was born in Kuhmo, Finland on June 7, 1932 to Sirkka and Major Erik PALOHEIMO. After completing his undergraduate degree in Abstract Mathematics at the University of Helsinki in 1953, he immigrated to Canada. He undertook post-graduate work at Columbia University, New York, and completed his doctorate at the University of Toronto while working as a Mathematical Statistician for the Fisheries Research Board in St. Andrews, New Brunswick and Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. Upon completion of his PhD dissertation, on the Theory of Search, he was immediately appointed Assistant Professor in both the Mathematics and Zoology departments of the University of Toronto, and later in the Institute of Applied Statistics there. In 1975 he became a member of the Institute of Environmental Studies, University of Toronto. He was promoted to Full Professor in 1976 in the Department of Zoology and the Department of Statistics. A world expert on search theory, he published over 70 academic papers, including some Citation Classics, and of the textbook, Models in Ecology, as well as contributing to other books in the field. He became an Emeritus Professor in 1997. A very quiet and unassuming person, Doctor PALOHEIMO had a lifelong interest in the inner life of man. His work on himself was felt by those he came in contact with. His attainments in this regard, as well as his genuine warmth and wry humour made him a guide and mentor for many people. He left behind former wife Linda PALOHEIMO, their children Roland WATT, Lisa HUGHES (Jan HUGHES,) Sven-Eric PALOHEIMO, Thomas PALOHEIMO and Jasmine PALOHEIMO, as well as former wife Anna CARLING, who provided vital nursing care in his final months, and their children Rolf PALOHEIMO (Diana POTTS) and Martti PALOHEIMO. He will be missed by his grand children, Jan-Christopher, Ceilidh, Reese and Keelan HUGHES; Shane (late,) Erik, Alison, and Leslie PALOHEIMO; Sean Eric MELVIN, and Martina, Kayla and Luke PALOHEIMO; and by great grandchild Serenity May MELVIN. In Finland, he leaves behind brothers Matti and Juhani (Jussi) PALOHEIMO and their families. A Memorial Service will be held on Sunday, April the 9th at 2 p.m. at Trinity College Chapel, 6 Hoskin Avenue, Toronto.

Winning the great race of life
Mensa member had zest for life
'An intellectual who liked to party"
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
A legend among his Friends and family, Bruce HUGHES was the bachelor always up for a beer or a party. For years at the Boston Marathon, and here in Toronto, he was the runner in the white bowler hat, the one who crossed the finish line usually under three hours despite -- or he might say because of -- the fact he'd been drinking till all hours the night before.
He was a darn good marathoner and he was also an enthusiastic member of the Hogtown Hash Hound Harriers, the Toronto chapter of a worldwide group that cheerfully bills itself as "an international drinking club with a running problem."
As Wild Bill, he was an often cranky, always trenchant regular on the Lonely Planet's forum -- more than 6,000 posts in four years -- and was never shy about telling what he knew and thought about Cuba, a country he loved but by which he was never fooled. His Havana pub crawl had become as famous as its opening sentence: "This pub crawl has been used several times and is totally reliable in obtaining the desired result -- a moderate state of inebriation."
And then there were the stories. Everybody, it seems, has a Bruce HUGHES story.
They may be set in Saigon, Pamplona or Gerona, but somehow they all involve HUGHES miraculously avoiding being gored by a bull, beaten up by an irate cyclo driver or a drunk Italian tourist, and they all end with HUGHES having a beer and a good laugh which is what some 60 or so of his Friends did at his wake last month at Dora Keogh's pub.
"Bruce was an intellectual who liked to party. Three hundred years go he would have been the smartest buccaneer in the Caribbean," said Alan KAY, HUGHES' friend for almost 40 years.
Indeed, HUGHES, 59, was a member of Mensa, a Winnipeg native who was a grad of York University's M.B.A. program, and a successful marketing strategist who at 50 had been financially able to retire and play the stock market.
And smart enough to take charge and go into project manager mode when told his diagnosis of cancer.
"He was an amazing human being before and after he was sick, said KAY.
Originally diagnosed with a torn rotator cuff in January 2004, HUGHES had been in such pain he considered cancelling his trip to Cuba, but didn't.
He told Friends later he discovered that a Cuban cigar was the best antidote for pain.
Back in Toronto, he learned it was cancer and that the primary source was his right kidney. He later joked that although his type of cancer often affects the liver, his didn't. "Guess mine was pickled," he'd say.
But he was in tears when he phoned his friend Ron MEREDITH- JONES and told him his diagnosis.
MEREDITH- JONES, a consultant to the Ministry of Health, Ontario Medical Association and Physicians' Services Committee, and HUGHES teamed up to gather information and discuss appointments.
He had been given four months to live -- "But he never wrote that date on the wall for a countdown," said his sister, Janice and one, then two, years later he was living full out. He had his regular beer and books meetings with Friends like Kay at Allen's, he organized a reunion of old Friends from his working days in Montreal, Toronto and Atlanta at Grossman's Tavern, he made new ones at a couple of pubs near his condo in The Beach.
He returned to a childhood interest in stamp collecting and got involved with his condo committee. He sent out regular email updates. His last one, dated mid-July 2006, is a typically businesslike and mischievous -- missive.
"What I'll comment on is an overview of the body, the treatments, side effects and finally what else is going on in my life," he wrote in his introduction.
Under the heading "The rest of my life" he wrote: "What's the point of going through all this, if there is nothing else happening in your life? Sometimes I admit it now feels like the point of my existence is this damn disease. Got to stay focused that the point is to minimize its impact... It's The Rest Of The Stuff That's Important... Even The Little Stuff."
And so last February, although considerably weakened and wracked by pain, he and Rennie SMITH (who is married to HUGHES' sister Janice) went to Cuba, where everybody knew him and where his girlfriend Danay, a medical student, and her son -- a 3-year-old named Yeison he had once thought, hoped, was his -- were living.
"Your girl ain't different," HUGHES the curmudgeon often wrote on the Cuba chatline to lovesick men. "I've paid for every piece of knowledge I have about Cuba and the Cubans."
And he had paid for the blood test that determined he wasn't Yeison's father, but still they dined with him every night during his last time in Cuba and he adored the boy. He'd been determined to visit Cuba because he had a significant amount of money he wanted to give Danay to build herself a home.
Back in Toronto, he was still making plans. He was going to his sister's cottage in Gimli at the end of August and see his three adult nephews there.
On Friday July 21, MEREDITH- JONES took him for a chemotherapy session and then back to his home, where HUGHES sat on the kitchen stool and swapped recipes with MEREDITH- JONES' wife. He bragged of drinking half a bottle of wine, although MEREDITH- JONES said it was only a few sips, and the two Friends talked about philosophy, Friendship and their Friends on the way home. MEREDITH- JONES watched him walk into his condo building.
The next morning HUGHES called him. "Jones-y, I'm in trouble," he said. MEREDITH- JONES raced over, but HUGHES wanted to wait it out, an hour, before calling for help. After 45 minutes, he allowed MEREDITH- JONES to call 911. "Don't make it a big deal," he ordered.
When more than a half dozen firefighters, paramedics and ambulance people responded to his call, HUGHES turned to his friend and said, "You idiot."
His sister and husband flew in from Winnipeg, KAY and MEREDITH- JONES, their wives and other Friends hovered by HUGHES' bedside, massaging his legs. HUGHES ran marathons in the '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s and in 2000, five decades, and he used to say he was aiming for six.
"He was treating it like a marathon. He didn't want to go," said MEREDITH- JONES. "He kept saying 'Okay.' Every few seconds. 'Okay.' The way marathoners do to get themselves to the end."
It came Sunday, July 23, at about 5 p.m., after MEREDITH- JONES told HUGHES: " You can go now."
