RICHARDSON, Howard William
Bill RICHARDSON died peacefully in Ottawa on July 7, 2006, his 92nd birthday, after a short illness. He was born in Montreal and grew up in Montreal West, spending summers at Lake Macdonald in the Laurentians. After graduation from Montreal West High, he joined Williams and Wilson, Ltd., a leading distributor of production machinery, where his father also worked. A keen hockey player, he played semi-pro, until sidelined by a knee injury. In 1943, he enlisted in the Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve, completing officer training at King's College in Halifax. Later in the same year, he married Grace Edith (Peggy) TEES, also of Montreal. Stationed in Halifax, he served as a Sub-Lieutenant on board corvettes doing convoy duty on the North Atlantic Ocean. After demobilization, Bill re-joined Williams and Wilson and in 1951, took up residence in Hudson, Quebec. Bill and Peggy curled in the winters and with four young children, the family was active in the yacht club and the golf club, as well as horseback riding. Each fall, Bill went duck hunting with Friends and business colleagues on the lower St. Lawrence River. In 1962, he joined the fledgling Toronto industrial distributor, Wainbee Tools Ltd., as a partner. Together with Jean-Paul Trudeau, he established a successful branch in Montreal, serving Quebec and the Maritimes. In 1974, he retired and he and Peggy moved to West Hawkesbury, Ontario, where he converted a ramshackle barn on a farm property to a welcoming family home. He led a very active life at Granary Farm, growing nursery stock, flowers and vegetables and making honey. He was a partner in a near-by Christmas tree farm. He enjoyed bass fishing at the North Lake Fish and Game Club's Lac Commandant, as well as salmon fishing in Labrador. On visits from his grandchildren, he entertained them with rides in the tractor bucket, feeding the steers and many practical jokes. He knew where to find the best corn on the cob in every place he lived. Bill and Peggy wintered in Vero Beach, Florida for over 25 years, developing many close Friendships. Bill especially enjoyed fishing and was a dedicated fan of the Dodgers at their spring training camps. In 1997, he and Peggy moved to Bath, Ontario and then, in declining health, to a retirement residence in Ottawa in 2005. Bill was predeceased by his sisters, Jean Laurie and Ruth Empey. He is survived by Peggy, his wife of 63 years, his son, Blair RICHARDSON of Oakville, daughters Sheila BLAINEY of Cobourg, Diana CARR of Ottawa and Pamela RICHARDSON of Hudson, Quebec along with son-in-law Jim BLAINEY, daughter-inlaw Sharon RICHARDSON, brother-in-law Ronald LAURIE, nephew Bill EMPEY, niece Anne GILLESPIE, cousin Frances COULL, and grandchildren Evan and Tori (BLAINEY,) Matthew and Katherine (CARR) and Graham and Gillian (RICHARDSON.) Following a private funeral, he will be interred at the Saint_James Anglican Church cemetery in Hudson, Quebec. He will long be remembered for living according to a strongly-held sense of duty; to his country, his wife and family, his employees, and his Friends. He will be sadly missed. In lieu of flowers, donations to Ducks Unlimited Canada, P.O. Box 1160, Stonewall, Manitoba R0C 2Z0 would be appreciated. A special thanks goes to the Alzheimer Society of Kingston, for their support to the family.

Sid BARRON, Cartoonist (1917-2006)
A humorist who favoured gentle wit over biting satire, his richly drawn works were always worth a second look
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S8
Victoria -- Sid BARRON's cartoons demanded more than a glance and a guffaw.
His sly style lured readers into a lengthy examination of work rich in detail and wordy in execution. Diligent viewers would be well rewarded for their attention.
A typical Barron editorial cartoon included a scene that, at second glance, offered a cornucopia of visual puns, as well as such detritus as a cat holding a sign, or a biplane towing a banner.
These often included the two catchphrases that came to be associated with the artist -- "Mild, isn't it?" and "Aren't the mountains pretty today?"
He poked fun at local foibles for the Victoria Times and The Albertan of Calgary. As well, his cartoons appeared in the Toronto Star for more than a quarter century. He often took as his subject the residents of the vast suburban expanses surrounding downtown. He renamed Don Mills, where he had once made his home, as Dawn Mills, a quiet yet pretentious place where residents could not help but brag about the "exceptional quality" of their curbside trash.
His cartoons favoured gentle wit over biting satire. He did not usually take as his subject breaking news, or hapless politicians whose mistakes generated headlines. Instead, he found humour in the annoyances of everyday life. The critic Robert Fulford called him "the poet of the mundane."
In one cartoon, published by the Star in 1962, a disgruntled hockey fan watching his team on television has failed to notice his house burning down around him. A firefighter in the living room says, "Yeah, I'd have to go along on that… they're going to 'cheap penalty' themselves right out of the game."
The slice-of-life setting, the overheard dialogue, and the absurdity of the situation are typical of events in what came to be called Barronland. He described the setting of his cartoons as Anyplace, Canada.
Mr. BARRON shared the Star's editorial page with Duncan MacPHERSON, a brilliant caricaturist whose wit was as wicked as Mr. BARRON's was dry.
Mr. MacPHERSON skewered politicians with sometimes devastating results.
It is said the reputation of former prime minister John Diefenbaker never recovered from his portrayal as a rabbit-toothed Marie Antoinette, which reduced a statesman to a figure of ridicule.
The pair gave the Star an enviable tag team, although not all readers were enamoured of Mr. BARRON. One letter writer complained his works were "neither humorous nor meaningful but just nauseating." He had his defenders, too. " MacPHERSON's cartoons make us laugh at our leaders," another wrote, "but BARRON's make us laugh at ourselves."
Sidney Arnold BARRON was born in Toronto from a brief liaison between his young, unmarried mother and a Belgian officer billeted with his mother's family.
From birth, he was raised by his aunt and her husband, and grew up knowing his biological mother as Auntie Daisy. The woman he called his mother was his aunt, Florence. He would be an adult before learning the truth.
He moved with his adoptive family to Victoria at the age of 2.
A shy, skinny boy, the usual childhood miseries were made the worse by a spectacular stammer.
The impediment was so pronounced that in 1938 his father sent him to the National Hospital for Speech Disorders in New York. (The hospital was favoured by U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who was on hand to open a new facility the following year.) In later years, the cartoonist liked to tell a story about his return home to an anxious family. As they gathered around, he announced, "I'm c-c-c-c-cured!"
In the late 1930s, he took art lessons from Allan Edwards, a precocious talent who was two years younger than Mr. BARRON and had followed him through South Park Elementary and Victoria High School.
Another Edwards student was Pierre Berton, an ambitious writer who also entertained a desire to be a cartoonist.
Mr. BARRON found work illustrating window cards for Victoria shops, and later painting billboards in Toronto.
When wartime restrictions halted the importation of American comic books, a Canadian industry was born overnight. Mr. BARRON found work as one of the freelancers in the stable of Educational Projects, a Montreal-based company whose bestselling title was Canadian Heroes. He was assigned to draw realistic depictions of historical events.
The Star Weekly magazine hired Mr. BARRON as a freelance illustrator, a lucrative gig that ended when the publication began purchasing syndicated works from American artists. He then spent much of the 1950s seeking work on the coast and in Ontario.
"During this period, it later became apparent, he developed a caustic assessment of the manners and moral values of his compatriots who populated the newer suburbs of Canada's expanding cities," Peter Desbarats wrote in The Hecklers, a 1979 history of Canadian political cartooning.
Mr. BARRON was hired as a cartoonist in 1958 by Victoria Times publisher Stuart Keate, who was eager for his afternoon daily to surpass the circulation of the morning rival, the Colonist. His works of gentle social commentary were entirely appropriate for the sleepy provincial capital. Three years later, Mr. BARRON began selling cartoons to the Star.
In 1962, Mr. BARRON moved to Calgary to work for The Albertan, all the while continuing with the Star as a client.
Few of his Toronto readers knew his cartoons were drawn from so far away. The humorist Gary LAUTENS described the circumstance for Star readers in 1964. " BARRON claims he is allergic to Toronto and every time he tries to live here (twice to date) he breaks out in airplane tickets and heads back for the foothills," he wrote.
Mr. BARRON worked in black ink and crayon on commercial board, applying bits of toned laminate. His characters were saddled with Everyman names such as Ralph or, especially, Harold. In one cartoon, two women are leaning over a backyard fence and one says to the other: "Harold's a small 'l' liberal… he doesn't know whether to vote Conservative, Liberal, New Democratic Party or Socred."
The "puddy tat," a cynical feline with ridiculous stripes, would appear in a lower corner holding a sign. Outdoor scenes would incorporate the biplane.
In 1983, editorial cartoonists met at convention in Toronto, gathering one evening in the C.N. Tower restaurant high above the city. Roy Peterson, of the Vancouver Sun, hired an airplane to fly past while towing a banner reading, "Mild, isn't it?"
Mr. BARRON was a gentle man of bohemian instinct, rarely lacking for female companionship, although a growing brood of children and stepchildren placed some limits on his romantic adventures. He met his third wife in Victoria in 1975 at what is now the Eric Martin Pavilion, where both were recuperating from breakdowns. Their union would last until Mr. BARRON's death.
He quit drawing cartoons in 1989, retiring to Coombs on Vancouver Island. He and his artist wife painted, Mr. BARRON indulging his passion for watercolour seascapes.
Several collections of his works were published over the years, including Barron's Victoria (1959), 2nd Annual Barron's Victoria (1960), Barron's Toronto (1965), Barron's Calgary Cartoons (1967), Barron Book (With Puddytat Centrefold) (1972), and The Best of Barron (1985). He also illustrated the Eric Nicol humour book, A Scar is Born (1968).
The Art Gallery of Greater Victoria held an exhibition of his works in 1973. Barron cartoons that once hung in the stairway home of British Columbia Premier W.A.C. Bennett are part of a travelling exhibit from the Kelowna Museum. The cartoons, also including works by Mr. Peterson, are currently on display at the Courtenay and District Museum on Vancouver Island.
The largest collection of his originals was gathered by the former National Archives in Ottawa, now Library and Archives Canada, which has 1,344 drawings. The Glenbow Museum in Calgary owns 70 originals published in The Albertan.
At a memorial service in Victoria, mourners were invited to speak about the deceased. Some did so by quoting from memory the captions to decades-old cartoons.
Sid BARRON was born on June 13, 1917, in Toronto. He died on April 29 at Mount Saint Mary Hospital in Victoria. He was 88. He leaves his third wife, Jessamine, known as Jesi; her daughter, Susan BARRON, and son David CONNOR; a daughter, Lisa MURRAY, from his first marriage; a son, Steven BARRON, and a daughter, Catherine McLEOD, from his second marriage; and, a sister, Florence HARTMAN. He also leaves eight grandchildren.
