LAVERY, Kenneth Reid, B.A. (U of T,) C.M.A., C.M.C., F.C.A.
Quietly and with dignity, Ken ended his long battle with skin cancer at Ian Anderson House in Oakville, on Tuesday, April 18, 2006. Ken is survived by Joan (LANGFORD,) his loving and caring wife of 48 years and his children, Shawn, Joanne (Jim KARAISKAKIS,) Stephen (Terri LAVERY) and Kathy (Ted LABRANCHE.) 'Papa' will also be missed by his devoted grandchildren Jennifer, Alexandra, Joshua, Joffre Reid and William. Ken only wishes he could have enjoyed them when he was younger. Born in London, Ontario in 1930, the only child of Ernest Anderson LAVERY and Norma Loretta REID, Ken began his multitude of careers as a deckhand. This experience led him to realize the importance of education so he took on a job as a tobacco primer to finance his future education. After his service in Germany with the 27th Infantry Brigade and working as short order chef, Ken continued his commitment to lifelong learning as he worked through careers as teacher, devoted husband, author, proud father, managing partner of Touche Ross and P Ross. S. and Partners, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Brewers Association of Canada, and caring grandfather. Finally, Ken initiated a successful class action suit in the United Kingdom versus Cuthbert Heath, 418 Merrett Insurance Syndicate and Ernst and Whinny leading to Lloyd's of London making an offer for 'final' settlement of all outstanding litigation accepted by over 35,000 Names; but not this one. Well travelled and a member of many professional associations and societies, Ken had Friends and colleagues all around the world. Regardless of the many international places he visited, Ken's favourite places were found in his own backyard: Hardy Bay, Mississauga Golf Club, Saint_James Oyster Bar, Royal Montreal and Ottawa Golf Clubs, Rideau Club Billiards Room, Caledon Mountain Trout Club, East India Club, The Ocean Club (Stuart, Florida) and fishing for sail off the St. Lucie Inlet. Other favorite passions included the Forum for Young Canadians and Trudeau Liberals. Visitation to be held at P.X. Dermody Funeral Home (www.pxdermodyfuneral.com), located on 7 East Avenue South in Hamilton, on Thursday, April 20 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. A service in celebration of Ken's life will take place at St. Andrew's Church, 47 Reynolds Street in Oakville on Friday, April 21 at 11 a.m. with burial to follow at Holy Supulchre Cemetery. Donations to Ian Anderson House, 430 Winston Churchill Boulevard, Oakville, Ontario L6J 7X2 are gratefully accepted. Ken was deeply appreciative of all his caregivers, especially the staff at Ian Anderson House and his dedicated wife.

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.

She sold the first hot dog at the Air Canada Centre
By Danny GALLAGHER, Page S7
Toronto -- Bessie LAMSON, who worked hard all her life, died at the Carpenter Hospice in Burlington, Ontario, on June 24. She was 107.
Over the years, Ms. LAMSON toiled as a maid, put in time on an assembly line, worked at Toronto's Maple Leaf Gardens when it was first built in the 1920s and sold the first hot dog at the Air Canada Centre in 1999.
Born on February 8, 1899, she was the eldest of eight children born to Charles and Charlotte LAMSON, descendants of Empire Loyalists who had settled in Cardinal, Ontario She left home in her early teens to work at a hospital across the St. Lawrence River in Ogdensburg, N. Y, then moved to Toronto to become a maid at the Park Plaza Hotel.
Later, she worked for 12 years for the Elizabeth Arden beauty company, where she was employed in the lunch room, on the assembly line and in the packaging department. On her way to work one day, she noticed that houses were being torn down in Toronto to make way for a new hockey shrine to be known as Maple Leaf Gardens.
"She was very upset with the buildings being taken down and that some people would have no place to live," said her niece, Nancy MILLER- KARKOULAS, of Burlington. "But she said she couldn't do anything about it and decided she would go there and work part-time selling hot dogs."
When Ms. LAMSON's supervisor at the Gardens told her she couldn't listen to Leafs games on her transistor radio (her job was far from the playing surface), she quit and purchased season's tickets way up in the grey seats. On February 13, 1999, she attended the final game played at the Gardens and was on the ice for the final ceremonies.
When the Air Canada Centre replaced the Gardens, she was asked to sell the first hot dog there. The sale was made to Leafs owner Steve STAVRO. Ken DRYDEN, then club president, had been the intended target but he'd been delayed by traffic. Ms. LAMSON was fond of Mr. DRYDEN because, for many years, he had sent her birthday cards.
Ms. LAMSON, who liked a shot of brandy here and there, once explained the reasons for her longevity: "I did what I wanted to do, I never married and I never smoked."
