HOWARD, J.F., Q.C.
On Saturday, June 3, 2006 Jake died at home surrounded by his family and Friends, having lived a full and accomplished life full of love, laughter and with almost all of his ambitions and wishes fulfilled. He will be sorely missed by his wife of 55 years, Nancy, his children, their spouses and grandchildren, Gillian Peter and Leslie; Ian, Robin, Christopher, Daniel and Rachael and Margot, Peter, Jake and Anne. All of the family always felt his love, support and delight in their successes and sought his wisdom and gentle counsel when things went awry. After serving in Canada's navy Jake graduated with a B.Comm. from the University of Toronto and then from Osgoode Hall. Jake was a partner at Blake, Cassels and Graydon LLP, where he began his practice of law in 1953. He was called to the Bar in Ontario, Saskatchewan, and Alberta and was named Queen's Counsel in 1966. His practice was commercial litigation before all levels of all courts and he participated in numerous special inquiries and administrative tribunals. He was a member of the Advocates Society, a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, and the first recipient of the Douglas K. Laidlaw Medal for Outstanding Advocacy in 1990. He was known for his ability to analyze cases quickly and completely and was a confident and accomplished advocate. He was also a natural teacher and a mentor to many young lawyers, both in his firm and throughout the profession. When Jake reduced his legal practice, he was appointed a Commissioner of the Ontario Securities Commission where he gladly contributed his wisdom and experience. Jake was an exceptional athlete being an accomplished skier, fly fisher, golfer, sailor and horseman, the latter being an interest which would occupy an important place in his later years. He was a member of the Board of Trustees of the Woodbine Entertainment Group from the mid-eighties, having served as Chair and then Honourary Chair at Woodbine where he was deeply respected for his work that ensured thoroughbred and harness racing in the Province of Ontario continued to thrive. Winning a major stakes race at Woodbine remains an unfulfilled wish, but perhaps that's yet to come. The family would like to express their deepest thanks to all of the health care professionals who cared for Jake and made it possible for him to enjoy life and then to die at home, as he wished. Particular thanks to Doctor Vincent MAIDA and Kim JOYCE for all of their support at home and to Doctor Pauline PARISER, a wise, wonderful and caring family physician. We would also like to thank Judy TUTTY, Jake's 'right hand' of so many years and his Friends John S. BURNS, Alan CAVENAGH, John R. EVANS, Donald ROSS, and David WILLMOT who provided love and support throughout his illness. Woodbine Racetrack is the location chosen for a celebration of Jake's life where Friends and family will gather on June 23 in the Northern Dancer Room from 3: 30 p.m. to 5: 30 p.m., share memories of Jake, and perhaps participate in the sport he loved. In lieu of flowers, a contribution to the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation (www.pmhf.ca) would be appreciated by the family.

GAGLIARDI, Marlene (née CHIULLI) (March 12, 1963-July 8, 2006)
With the sweet dignity and gentle nature by which she lived, Marlene peacefully surrendered her spirit to that merciful and eternal night in the early hours of Saturday morning. In the final embrace of her loving family her husband, Louis, and their two children, Emily and Vincent, along with her mother, Anna, and father, Nino the four years of cancer's brutal siege and assaults on her delicate and beautiful frame came to an end. Returning home from that fateful summer day of the first diagnosis in 2002, Marlene was extraordinarily cheerful and sustained this courage throughout her struggle. This she did out of the nobly unselfish concern to protect those she loved. She never cried, never sought the indulgence of sympathy, nor ever gave the faintest hint of self-pity. To all of us who knew and loved her, this was the ultimate heroism in the face of death, the truest testament to her strength of character. She was dutiful and athletic as a child; diligent and devoted to her work in her twenty-five year career at British Airways; and exemplary in her goodness and loyalty as a daughter, sister, and friend. Marlene shared the gifts of her young life and steadfast love with her husband, Louis, for 17 years. Their journey, christened at the start by the transformative magic of Vincent's "Sunflowers", took them together to discoveries of distant travels, enriched their lives through the elevating experience of art, and culminated in the stability of a home filled with unconditional love, laughter, and hope. But above all else, her proudest legacy resides in her precious children, Emily, 15, and Vincent, 5, in whom her spirit prevails, guides, protects, and loves...depthless and without end. Marlene will be forever grieved by her husband and children; by her parents Nino and Anna whom she adored and whose love for their baby girl was infinite, tirelessly and tenderly nurturing her at life's end as when it began; by her loving sisters Vivian and Mara; her in-laws Vincent and Lucia GAGLIARDI; brothers-in-law, Ugo, Patrick, Tony; nieces Natalie and Melissa; nephews Justin, Michael, Erik. Our family extends its profound gratitude for the steadfast love and support of relatives, Friends, colleagues, and neighbours. A special thank you to: Doctor Vincent MAIDA; Community Care Access Centre of York Region; Cris ALQUIRE; St. Elizabeth Health Care's Susan MORGAN and nurses Iryna ISAYEVA, Madeleine BENOIT; Cheryl RICCI, Kelly ANDERSON; ParaMed caregivers Miriam BUCKLEY and Sheron ROBINSON; Hospice Vaughan; Father Claudio MOSER for his heartfelt compassion, bringing solace to our pain and the spirit of the living Christ into our home; and Mr. Darryl SITTLER for his unforgettable kindness. And to everyone who ever expressed solidarity with our suffering and sorrow, you showed us the reflection of that enduring light that, despite everything else, glows forever within and upon the human condition. Thank you. Visitation at Ward's Funeral Home, Woodbridge (Hwy 7, west of Pine Valley) on Monday and Tuesday from 2-4 and 6-9 p.m. Funeral Mass at Saint Peter's, Woodbridge on Wednesday, July 12 at 11 a.m. Private services for cremation and entombment at Queen of Heaven Cemetery will follow.

MAILLY o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2006-04-04 published
Woman and son found in ruins of house
By Oliver MOORE, Page A8
A woman found dead with one of her children in the burned house of her former husband had raised numerous concerns about him, Ottawa police said last night.
Over the past four years, Frank MAILLY was accused of threatening and harassing his wife, Francine, one of her colleagues and her brother. She left the relationship at least twice, the second time within the past year. She spoke at length with police as recently as last week.
Mr. MAILLY was under a court order to keep away from his wife, and Ottawa Police Chief Vince BEVAN said that Ms. MAILLY had raised no safety concerns in last week's interview. Only days later, she was found dead after a blaze police are treating as a multiple homicide.
Ms. MAILLY went to her estranged husband's farmhouse east of Ottawa on Sunday to drop off their three young children for a visit, police believe. Around the time she was to retrieve the children, neighbours reported an explosion, and fire crews were summoned to an intense blaze.
Chief BEVAN said that the destructive power of the fire was sped by an accelerant. Two bodies were found inside yesterday; one is thought to be Ms. MAILLY and the other one of her two sons. Dogs will continue their search today for the other two children, a boy and a girl.
"The two bodies were discovered by the cadaver dog… [they're] impossible to identify, the coroner was comfortable only saying it was a woman and young child," police Staff Sergeant Monique PERRAS said in a telephone interview.
"We believe that we will find two more bodies."
The couple had a 12-year-old girl named Jessica and a pair of boys, nine-year-old Brandon and six-year-old Kevin. Autopsies will be needed to identify the corpses, and it was not clear which of the sons had been found yesterday.
Chief BEVAN said in a televised news conference that a.22-calibre firearm was found near the ruins of the building. A van nearby contained a family portrait and a note describing Mr. MAILLY's desire to kill his family, he added.
The note also explains Mr. MAILLY's reasons for wanting to harm his family, but the chief did not say what they were.
Mr. MAILLY died in the blaze as well. A neighbour reported that he was seen running from the house engulfed in flames. He collapsed in the yard and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Up to 20 investigators were combing the ruins yesterday and a team will be back today at the property, which lies on a country road east of Orleans. Since the case is being treated as a homicide, police have joined the fire marshal and fire investigators.
During the catastrophic fire on Sunday evening, a neighbour raised the alarm and several people reported hearing an explosion. It took dozens of firefighters several hours to get the blaze under control, and they were unable to save the main building.
Two other buildings on the property were also destroyed.

Ontario father kills wife, three children
Family home destroyed in blaze
Ottawa-area man's body found nearby
Canadian Press
Ottawa -- A father who was under a restraining order to stay away from his family killed his wife and three children in an Ottawa-area community, police said last night.
Police made the grisly discovery after searching through the rubble of the burned-out home in Cumberland that had exploded in flames Sunday night.
Chief Vince BEVAN told a news conference that police believe Frank MAILLY killed his wife Francine, 12-year-old daughter Jessica and sons Brandon, 9, and Kevin, 6.
Police found a note from MAILLY outlining his reasons for killing his family in a van parked in the driveway.
The note had a picture of the children along with it, BEVAN said.
MAILLY's badly burned body was discovered on the lawn of the home Sunday night.
Police also said a.22-calibre rifle was found near the front door of the home.
The remains of a woman and boy were found in the wreckage, and police said they were continuing to search for the bodies of the other two children.
The bodies were so badly burned that autopsies will have to be conducted to properly identify them.
BEVAN said Francine MAILLY had taken the children for a visit to see their father earlier Sunday and then left.
MAILLY had a history of harassing his family and had recently separated from his wife, police said.
BEVAN said Francine MAILLY had talked with officers last week and said they didn't get any indication that she was worried about her safety.
MAILLY was charged with harassing his wife in 2002 and a co-worker in 2003.
A news report said MAILLY was a Canada Post mail carrier.
He was also charged earlier this year with threatening his brother-in-law.

JESSIMAN, The Honourable Duncan James, Q.C.
Quietly and with dignity, Duncan passed away, on Wednesday, April 19, 2006 in Vancouver, British Columbia. Duncan is survived by Alix (PERRIN,) his loving and caring wife of 27 years and his children, Duncan (Colleen CRAWFORD,) Robert (Sally KENDALL) and Sally (Arnold OSTEVIK.) 'Big', as he was affectionately known, will also be missed by his devoted grandchildren Duncan (Tressa MAIN,) Patrick, Shauna, Ryann (Phil DOUCETTE), Scott, Robin, Joe and Julia. Big was a loving caring father and grandfather always there to support and love his family. It made him very proud that all of his children were university educated and active professionals in their communities. He was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba on June 5th 1923, to parents William and Rubina (RUBY) JESSIMAN. He was predeceased by his mother when he was 9 years old and subsequently by his father and brothers, William, Tom and John and he is survived by his youngest brother Harvey. At age 16, Duncan left home and went west to fight fires in British Columbia. His Aunt Ret and Uncle Dunc then convinced him to come home and stay with them and go back to school. They made him realize the importance of education. At the age of 18, he joined the Royal Canadian Navy as a midshipman. He served in the coastal forces in Canada, the United Kingdom and France. He served with the 29th Canadian Motor Torpedo Boat Flotilla and was part of the Allied liberation of Europe, participating in D-day, June 6, 1944, and in operations on the French, Belgian and Dutch coasts. This was dangerous duty. He survived the destruction of his squadron at 0stend in 1945. He was honourably discharged as a Lieutenant Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve in August 1945. After his service he continued his commitment to lifelong learning as he worked to obtain his law degree. After he obtained his law degree, he went back and obtained his arts degree and then later his LLM and then went on to teach in the post graduate program at the law school. He started practicing law in 1948, when he joined with Arthur Johnston, the firm eventually becoming Johnston, Jessiman, Gardner and Twaddle. In 1971 that firm joined with Pitblado and Hoskin where he became a partner and in 1998 he joined Aikins, MacAulay and Thor valdson where he continued his practice until 2005. He was appointed Queen's Counsel in 1959 and appeared successfully before the Supreme Court of Canada on four occasions. He was a life long member of the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada and became a senator in 1993. He took great pride on the work he did in the Senate with the Special Committee dealing with the Pearson Airport Agreements, the Standing Committees on Fisheries and Oceans; Legal and Constitutional Affairs; Social Affairs, Science and Technology; the Sub Committee on Veterans Affairs; and the Joint Committee on Child Custody and Access. In addition to politics Duncan's commitment to the community involved his participation in the Rotary Club of Winnipeg where he became President, the University of Winnipeg, where he became Chairman of the Board of Regents; he was a founding member, chairperson of the board and member of the executive committee of the Victoria General Hospital Research and Services Inc. in addition he was a member of the advisory boards of Rainbow Stage and the Canadian Arthritis Society. In business he was equally successful where he was a driving force in the creation of a number of entities listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange. These entities included Service Corporation International Canada, Geocrude Energy, Pan Cana Resources and Rimoil where he served as chairman and Enerplus Resources where he was a director. He also served as a director of Air Canada. In Winnipeg, through Progressive Holdings he was involved with many investments involving among other things, land development. The development of Linden Ridge with others was one of its larger undertakings. Through his community involvement, political associations and business interests, there were not many places he didn't travel to, however his best times were visiting the far flung reaches of Canada and getting to know and gain a better understanding of the people. He always prided himself for having a goal, setting the agenda, being rigorously honest, being in control, giving ample consideration to all the details in complex matters, he had a very focused and strong mind. When needed he was always able to shift his truly incredible power of focus to deal with the required issue at hand, usually involving others. He was always determined and could always be relied on. His enormous strength, energy and the security of purpose was cherished by many, but in particular, his family members. He will be dearly missed by all. He was a member of the Manitoba Club and the St. Charles Country Club where he very much enjoyed matching wits with the 'Boys of Friday'. For many years Duncan and the family spent summers enjoying the family cottage uniquely located on the isthmus between West Hawk Lake and Hunt Lake. A service in celebration of Duncan's life will take place at St. George's Crescentwood Anglican Church, 168 Wilton Street in Winnipeg on Tuesday, April 25 at 11 a.m. with reception to follow at the Church. Donations to CancerCare Manitoba, P.O. Box 2248, Winnipeg, Manitoba R3C 4A6 are. gratefully appreciated.
