HOWARD, Frederick H. " Joe," M.I.D., P.Eng., B.Sc.T.
In his 87th year, died peacefully, in Toronto on May 18th, 2006, surrounded by family. Born in Montreal, the first of two sons of Clifford and Charlotte HOWARD. After sojourns in New Rochelle, Rye and Pelham Manor, New York, Joe's family settled in Toronto where he attended Upper Canada College from 1927 to 1936. Earlier summers were spent at Camp Temagami, later ones working in the Canadian Locomotive Company in Kingston. He graduated in 1940 from University of Toronto with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Mechanical and Electrical Engineering. He joined the Canadian Pacific Railway as the second employee and a senior draughtsman of the new Munitions Department at Angus Workshops in Montreal, his main contributions being the re-design of the major assemblies of Vickers-Armstrongs' Valentine Tank Mark III. During World War 2 he was commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant in Montreal with the Royal Ordnance Corps, later transferring to the Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers. He served both in Barriefield and at the only tank workshop in Canada, Camp Borden, before going overseas to Slough, England in January 1944. He left for Normandy in August 1944, and served with the 2nd Canadian Advanced Base Workshop in Antwerp from September 1944 to October 1945, when he was Mentioned In Dispatches. He retired at the rank of Captain in early 1946. Joe returned to civilian life as a Canadian Pacific Railway roundhouse foreman at Ottawa-West and Hochelaga (Montreal). He overcame polio and moved to London, Ontario in 1950 to join General Motors Diesel as a foreman. He was subsequently promoted through General Foreman, Assistant to Works Manager, Assistant Superintendent, Chief Inspector to New Products Coordinator his most significant accomplishment during that period was the development of the 'Portager' railroad freight car. In 1960, he moved to Toronto with General Motors Frigidaire Division, was subsequently promoted to Chief Engineer and was a visible contributor to Habitat '67 at Montreal's World Fair. In 1969 he moved to Halifax as the first president and chairman of two provincial crown corporations, Halifax International Containers and Halterm Limited. In 1980 he co-founded and was president of Novaport International Consultants which provided transportation consulting services, principally in the Caribbean. He moved to Calgary in 1985 as the first president of Alberta Intermodal Services. He subsequently served as an advisor on transportation matters to the late Honourable Senator Finlay MacDonald, and as recently as 2001, actively consulted to the World Bank and various governments (Canada and China). He was the Honourary Consul for the Federal Republic of Germany in Halifax, and a member of Mensa. Joe co-founded the Upper Canada Railway Society and was a contributing member of the Canadian Transportation Research Forum. He was a constant contributor to Trains Magazine and authored many papers on a wide range of technical and historical aspects of railroading and transportation. He was a Chairman of United Way and Canadian Cancer campaigns and President of the Ontario Chamber of Commerce and The Nova Scotia Council for Canadian Unity. He was predeceased by his wife, Mary Annetta (née CAROLAN, d. 1986) of 33 years, and by his brother, R.B. "Dick" HOWARD (Upper Canada College Headmaster, d. 1996). He is survived by his children R. Michael HOWARD (Julie) of Bangkok, Thailand, L. Joseph HOWARD (Louise) of Calgary and Anne LOWNDES (Jock) of Toronto; his grandchildren Paul (Katie), Jay (Fran) and Heather and Jill LOWNDES; and his great-grandchildren Cameron, Christopher, Andrew and Erin HOWARD. Joe earned the respect, admiration and Friendship of colleagues throughout his career by his eagerness to pursue innovative ideas to successful conclusions and to undertake groundbreaking leadership positions. His zest for life and passionate enjoyment of his hobbies and interests - railroading and baseball, to name two - led to many lively Friendships. His love for his family was active, unconditional and unrelenting. He is remembered as one who took his responsibilities assiduously, pursued knowledge relentlessly and was generous in sharing his thoughts. He was a loving father and a very proud Canadian who strongly believed in giving back to this world that he so enjoyed. He died with courage and dignity, and graciously donated his body to the University of Toronto for medical research. Well done. Friends and acquaintances may send their remembrances by emailing them to joehoward654321@yahoo.com A memorial service will be organized in Toronto later this year. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a children's charity of your choice.

Taps for Alfred
A beloved old soldier dies, leaving mysteries about his past unsolved, Peter CHENEY writes
By Peter CHENEY, Page M3
To some, Alfred FINLEY was a tragic icon of the Second World War, a man who had risked his life for his country only to end his days in grinding poverty, living in a Toronto garage with no running water.
Central Casting could not have found a more poignantly photogenic symbol of war than Mr. FINLEY, with his dignified face and rheumy blue eyes -- when Remembrance Day rolled around, he was photographed and filmed again and again in his Black Watch uniform, tears running down his cheeks as he recalled past battles and fallen Friends.
But to others, he was a fraud, with a military history that didn't add up and a uniform that looked like it had been pieced together as a costume by a man who wanted the limelight.
After The Globe and Mail featured him in a story two years ago, recounting an amazing military history including battles at Anzio and Tobruk and wading ashore on D-Day, veterans suggested that Mr. FINLEY was not all that he claimed to be -- the Black Watch regiment, they pointed out, didn't participate in many of the battles that Mr. FINLEY recounted. Others said his medals and insignia were not consistent. A Black Watch Association member said he could not have done all the things he said he did -- or seemed to believe that he had.
But confronted by the discrepancies, Mr. FINLEY stood by his version: "That's how I remember it," he said.
This week, the final chapter in Mr. FINLEY's strangely compelling story played out in a Brampton cemetery when he was lowered into the earth in a simple wooden casket, dressed in his disputed uniform and surrounded by people who loved him, whether his story was real or invented -- or a combination of both.
"He wasn't just a soldier to me," said Barbara HALE- FRENSCH, a teacher who befriended Mr. FINLEY more than a decade ago and considered him the "adopted grandfather" to her children. "He was a wonderful old man with a kind heart who gave away everything he had to others."
By the time of his death at the age of 86, due to complications from cancer, Mr. FINLEY had become a local character in Toronto's High Park neighbourhood, where he spent his days drinking coffee in the local McDonald's, talking to residents and cruising in his electric scooter. (He lost one of his legs due to infection after the war.)
As the 2004 Globe story recounted, he lived in abject poverty, paying $600 of his $1,000 veteran's pension to landlord Maryann SCHENBRI, who rented him space in her garage.
He was a fixture at veterans' events, rigging himself up in his Black Watch uniform and medals for the Canadian National Exhibition Warriors' Day Parade every August, and for Remembrance Day ceremonies at Old City Hall in November. He appeared in newspapers and television newscasts more than half a dozen times. "An Old Vet Remembers," one headline read.
In 1996, a photograph of Mr. FINLEY was nominated for a National Newspaper Award. His face still appears on a National Defence website.
Mr. FINLEY's passing has not made his record available -- Department of National Defence spokesmen said military records remain sealed for 20 years after death, although military officials have confirmed that an Alfred FINLEY served overseas during the Second World War.
But those who knew him best say that questions about his record should not define him.
"People knew that at least part of the story was made up," says Sherry LOW/LOWE/LOUGH- BERNIE, a High Park Pilates instructor who saw Mr. FINLEY almost every day since 2004. "People kept saying that he wasn't for real. I said, Who cares? He volunteered for his country, and he wasn't hurting anyone. It really isn't about the details of his military record. It's about an old soldier who lived in a garage without running water. Nobody should have to live the way he did."
Ms. HALE- FRENSCH, who delivered the eulogy at Mr. FINLEY's funeral, wept as she recalled how the old soldier would come to Runnymede School every morning to listen to her band rehearse, and run errands for her on his scooter. "What's important is that he loved people, and that people loved him," she said. "It's not about the details of what he really did."
Even so, many noticed that Mr. FINLEY's war stories grew and shifted over the years, often accumulating pathos and detail. He told one friend about going ashore at Normandy, but later said that he had been in Berlin on the same date. He told Ms. HALE- FRENSCH about a dramatic rescue in North Africa, where he pulled five British soldiers out of a tank that had been hit by German fire just moments before it exploded. Soon after, he told her, he had been summoned by Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery, who had awarded him a medal.
Gail CATNEY, an executive assistant who met Mr. FINLEY on the streets of High Park in the early 1990s, said she had been struck by his generosity. Though he was poor, he refused handouts, and often brought gifts for her, she said, recalling the time he brought her a Delft vase. "My heart went out to him," she said. "He was alone, and he had nothing."
Ms. CATNEY was one of a handful of mourners who attended Mr. FINLEY's burial this week. He never married, and had no close family in Toronto. His service was paid for by the Last Post fund, which is funded by Veterans Affairs and private donations.
Mr. FINLEY was dressed in his Black Watch uniform and cap, and a piper played Amazing Grace as his flag-draped casket was lifted by the pallbearers. The military was represented by Master Corporal Victoria LOGAN- WHITE/WHYTE, a young cadet with the 75th Toronto Scottish Regiment who had often accompanied Mr. FINLEY to veterans' events. "I knew him my whole life," she said.
Ms. CATNEY cried as she placed a red plastic poppy on Mr. FINLEY's casket before it was lowered into the grave. "Goodbye, Alfred," she said. "We love you."
Another friend of Mr. FINLEY's listened to the eulogy, then noted sadly that his possessions were sitting out on the street less than 24 hours after his death. "His mattress was at the curb, and everything he owned was in five garbage bags," she said.
Ms. SCHENBRI, his landlady, wouldn't talk about her former tenant this week, but once said that she saw nothing wrong with his living arrangements, despite the lack of plumbing and the fact that he had no privacy, since she walked through his room to get to her car.
"Please," she said. "He's like my father."
Ms. SCHENBRI did not attend Mr. FINLEY's funeral this week.

WOODSIDE, Peggy (formerly DEVITT, née THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON)
Mother died on December 16, 2006 at Toronto East General Hospital. Peggy was born the fourth of four children in Toronto on August 13, 1921, to most beloved parents the Reverend and Mrs. B.W. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON (Eva LOW/LOWE/LOUGH of Renfrew, Ontario.) Secondary schooling occurred in Kingston, Ontario, after which she graduated from Queen's University in 1943. In 1944, she attended the College of Education in Toronto, later teaching at Renfrew Collegiate, South Collegiate in London, Ontario, and Western Technical School in Toronto. From 1964 to 1986, Peggy taught at Leaside High School (Toronto). After her marriage to Bill DEVITT in 1947, they moved to Leaside where they raised their three children, Bill, Patricia (Pat) and Peggy-Anne. Immediately they became active in the community, at school, church and in sporting events. Having lived in Leaside for over fifty years, Peggy cherished her life-long Friends and neighbours. She was grateful for the warmth of their affection, in particular the staff and students at Leaside High School, her very close Friends at Northlea United Church, where she was an active member. In 1964, Peggy faced a sudden challenge, her husband died at age 45. Mother's indomitable spirit, and courage, her work ethic and the dedication to her loving children remained steadfast. Peggy resumed her teaching career at Leaside High School in 1964. She had many Friends and a wide range of interests such as The Book Club, music, theatre and her secret passion for sports and athletics scarcely ever missing a game on television. Much of the family socializing over the years occurred at the cottage on Danforth Lake, Quebec where her children and grandchildren have such fun and good times. In 1994, Peggy married Caryle WOODSIDE, a former Queen's University friend, who died suddenly in 1997. She is predeceased by her two husbands, two brothers, sister Evelina "Ev" (1985) and her daughter Patricia (1987).
