SYKES, Harold Joseph John
Peacefully in his sleep, as he wished, at his home in London, Ontario, on February 23, 2006 in his 88th year. Harold was the devoted husband and friend for 54 years of Fern SYKES (née MERRITT,) who passed away in 2000. Cherished father and father-in-law of Gail and Joe McCARTY (London) and Stephanie SYKES (Montreal.) Dear grandfather of Scott McCARTY (Dorchester) and Dr. Tracey McCARTY and her husband, Rick RIGBY (Carlisle.) Several great grandchildren will miss Grandpa Harold's warm smile, his unwavering kindness, his wit and sense of humor: Nicole McCARTY (Dorchester,) Lauren, Ryan and Erin RIGBY (Carlisle.) Harold leaves two brothers, Vern SYKES (Dundas) and Stanley SYKES (Burlington,) who, with nieces Elaine MacMILLAN (Hamilton) and Diane NICKS (Stoney Creek) and nephews Bill MacMILLAN (Hamilton,) Vern MacMILLAN (Stokes Bay,) Ross SYKES and Neil SYKES (Burlington) will mourn the passing of a fine and decent man. Harold is predeceased by his mother, Eliza and father, Harold Richard; his sisters Marion TOWNER (California) and Eileen MURRAY (Hamilton;) his son-in-law, Chuck McCARTY (London.) Harold and Fern leave many Friends and extended family in the Hamilton-Stoney Creek area where they lived for several years. A veteran of World War 2, Harold served his country overseas with the Royal Canadian Air Force. He donated his log book to the National Archives, the contents of which document a harrowing tale of a Sunderland aircraft downed in high seas off the coast of West Africa in July, 1944. A quiet hero, Harold rarely spoke of his accomplishments. When he met his lifelong love, Fern, she mentioned a friend of hers, a veteran, who was a member of "The Gold Fish Club" (fliers who had survived ditched aircrafts on the high seas). It was not until years later, after they married, that Fern learned Harold, himself, was a "Gold Fish"! He lived his life simply, with honor, truth and dignity, caring most for those near him who needed a helping hand, a shoulder to lean on, a word of encouragement, a strong but warm heart. He spread light, but as Edith Wharton wrote "There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it". Harold most often reflected the light of those he loved and who loved him. The world is less light today without that mirror. As he wished, Harold's remains have been cremated. His family will gather for a private and simple interment at Forest Lawn Memorial Home and Gardens, 2001 Dundas Street, London on Saturday March 4 at 10: 00 a.m. At 11:00 a.m. on Saturday March 4, Friends and family are invited to join together for an informal reception to remember Harold and Fern: Reception area of the Forest Lawn Memorial Home at the same address. In lieu of flowers, Harold would have suggested two appropriate tributes: donation to the charity of your choice and take a few extra hours today to spend with those you love.

Local history his passion
By Joe MATYAS, Free Press Reporter, Sun., March 12, 2006
Raymond CRINKLAW travelled the world but it was his Westminster Township roots that became his passion.
And that's why many Lambeth-area residents paid their respects to him after he died in late February at the age of 91 in a London nursing home.
"It was his prodding that got us going," said Marian WELDON of the founding of the Westminster Township Historical Society in "We're really missing him now," said WELDON, secretary of the society. CRINKLAW was the society's founding president.
"We're compiling a history of Delaware and Westminster townships now and Raymond's knowledge and memories would be invaluable."
His contribution to local history is already huge because of the research he left to posterity, including documents donated to the society by his daughter, Janet GIBSON, who lives in Sutton, said WELDON.
The heritage room at the Lambeth public library is full of materials collected, organized and written by CRINKLAW, said Doris MONTGOMERY of Delaware, known as Doris BOND during her long career as a Lambeth librarian.
"Raymond was a tireless researcher and a familiar figure at our library."
CRINKLAW painstakingly poked through newspaper archives, municipal and church records and even cemeteries, she said.
He could be wilful, but also committed his own resources to projects, said local historian Fred ARMSTRONG.
"He subsidized some publications out of his own pocket and kept scrapbooks of interesting materials."
His research blossomed into the writing of newspaper articles, essays and publications on the early days of Byron, Talbot Road, Glanworth and Westminster Township.
To complement the written word, he commissioned artist George Rickard to render pen and ink drawings.
CRINKLAW's legacy included service to the community as reeve and deputy reeve of the township, as a Middlesex County councillor and member of the Lower Thames River Conservation Authority, said David MURRAY, former Westminster mayor.
He was also active in the Lambeth Optimist Club and Masons, said MURRAY.
"He had an endless curiosity about all aspects of Masonic history, as well as the township where he was born and raised."

MURRAY, Howard Ives
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved father and husband on Tuesday, March 21, 2006. Originally diagnosed with cancer in 1992, his positive attitude, family and medical support kept him symptom free for 14 years. He is survived by his loving wife and best friend Betty Anne, two children Howard junior and Catherine, both of whom he was always very proud, daughter-in-law Cathy and his adoring grandchildren Emily and Jonathan. Howard was born in Trenton, Nova Scotia, September 3, 1924 then moved to Welland, Ontario with his family when he was eight years old. From 1943 to 1946 he was a navigator/bombardier with the Royal Canadian Air Force. On exiting the Service he returned to finish school at Pickering College, and then attended The University of Toronto. His career began with the J.F. Hartz Company, at the time one of Canada's leading distributors of medical supplies and equipment. He started as a factory helper and within 11 years he was elected to the board of directors for Hartz, and was appointed President in 1971. He moved on to become President of Narco Scientific another successful medical equipment supply company. Under his guidance, Narco produced the worlds first air-transportable infant care system, (Pre-mature infant incubator) which has helped to save the lives of countless children. His career included joining Air Shields United States, International Division, where he traveled the world including Europe, Asia and Australia. Despite his busy life, he always made it a point to find time for his family. As a Husband and a Father he provided unlimited and unconditional love.

Frank MURRAY, Radio Executive (1918-2006)
Small-town Ontario broadcaster made his mark on the national scene
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S11
Toronto -- From the air to the radio station, sound was the big noise in Frank MURRAY's life. He was a long-time friend of former Canadian prime minister Pierre Trudeau, covered Winston Churchill's funeral as a radio reporter and helped shape broadcasting in the Ontario venues of Belleville, Trenton and Bancroft.
The son of a professor of music at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland, he grew up to join an insurance company as a sales executive but headed for Northern Ireland soon after the Second World War began to enlist in the Royal Air Force.
He spent six years as a flight lieutenant and Coastal Command air gunner, one of very few commissioned officers to serve in that role. In 1943-44, he was engaged in a special mission that altered his life dramatically: He was sent to an air force base in Picton, Ontario, to help prepare air crews for warfare as part of the vast British Commonwealth Air Training Plan. It was a large, busy base and on Saturday nights, busloads of young, local women arrived at the officers' mess to attend dances and other social functions. One night Mr. MURRAY met Isobel STEWARD/STEWART/STUART of Belleville, Ontario, and one thing led to another. They were married March 11, 1944, at the base and soon afterward he returned to the war in Europe. Isobel followed later on a ship full of war brides.
"As it was war time, they had no idea of when they would dock in England but Dad flew Coastal Command and kept an eye on the ship," daughter Pam MURRAY said. "He was the first person to greet the boatload of wives and kids and somehow managed to get some flowers. Mom and Dad left on a train for Northern Ireland the next day. Mom was there for the better part of a year when she found out she was pregnant with me and came back to Belleville."
When the war ended, Mr. MURRAY joined his wife in Belleville and worked at odd jobs before landing a sales position at CJBQ Radio. By 1959, he had been made general manager. Over the years, he took CJBQ from a 500-watt medium enterprise to a four-station network that included CKGL-FM in Belleville, CJTN in Trenton and CJNH in Bancroft.
Veteran broadcaster Dave SOVEREIGN still remembers the day Mr. MURRAY hired him. "I was a radio and television arts student at Ryerson in Toronto and one day in 1960, Frank came from Belleville because he wanted a summer student.
"There were seven people who auditioned for him and he chose me. Then the following year, I was hired full-time as a newsman and eventually became the news director. I worked 28 years for Quinte Broadcasting."
While he worked mostly in management, Mr. MURRAY would often get behind the microphone or hit the road as a reporter. When former British prime minister Winston Churchill died in 1965, Mr. MURRAY attended the funeral and sent live reports back to the station.
"That was pretty unique and big news in Belleville to have someone like Frank travelling all the way to London to cover the funeral," Mr. SOVEREIGN said. In much the same way, Mr. MURRAY also reported the royal wedding of Princes Charles and Lady Diana
Closer to home, he twice put crews together and took them to Montreal to cover Expo 67 and the 1976 Olympics, and once caused a stir by accompanying external affairs minister Mitchell Sharp on an around-the-world visit. He pulled off a media coup by doing a live show with Mr. Sharp from the back of the plane. "We got scooped by a guy from a small station in Belleville," said CTV reporter Mike Duffy.
Mr. MURRAY also stole a march or two as a broadcast executive. In the early years of cable television, he acquired an operating licence for Quinte Cable Systems, which today claims 80 per cent penetration of its market. At the time, it was second such licence issued in Canada.
"Frank got that licence for only $25," recalls Don LAWRIE, formerly a senior executive with Thomson Newspapers, which went into a partnership on the project. "At first, Ken Thomson, the owner, didn't want to get involved because he thought the government would think we would have a monopoly. Finally, I suggested to Ken that we approach Frank and the Morton family about being a local partner."
Frank MURRAY also had a keen interest in local education. He was instrumental in setting up a radio-broadcasting program at Belleville's Loyalist College and founded and directed radio-club programs in Belleville and Trenton high schools.
For all that, his influence extended well beyond the region. He sat on the board of directors of the Canadian Association of Broadcasters and was president of the Central Canada Broadcasters Association, both considered unusual achievements for a small-market radio executive. "Usually it was the big guys, CHUM, etc., who sat on those boards," Pam MURRAY said.
On the political front, Mr. MURRAY engaged in a lifelong relationship with Mr. Trudeau and the Liberal party. At a fundraiser in Belleville in the 1970s, Mr. Trudeau asked him to run as a candidate in a federal riding. He declined the invitation but the two men remained Friends. When Mr. Trudeau died, Mr. MURRAY attended his funeral.
Frank MURRAY was born on February 13, 1918 in Dublin, Ireland. He died January 24, 2006, in Belleville, Ontario of natural causes. He was 87. He is survived by his daughter Pam and sons Kevin and Stewart. He was predeceased by his wife Isobel.

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.

JARVIS, Anita Agnes, B.Sc., M.D., M.Sc., F.R.C.P., C.C.
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Doctor Anita JARVIS on June 25, 2006. Anita was born in Szeged, Hungary. Her father was a professional engineer and entrepreneur. In addition to Hungarian, at age 3 she learned to speak German and English, to which she later added French. She loved to spend the summers swimming and rowing in the River Tisza. After the war she started to study chemistry in Budapest, but by 1949 she knew that she could not possibly live in a communist country pretending to beliefs that she did not share. So, in spite of the close to impenetrable Iron Curtain, she managed to escape to Austria from where two years later, in 1951, she emigrated to Canada. She finished her chemistry degree in Montreal, where she also met her husband Gregory, to whom she was married for 55 years. Their daughter, Ingrid, was born in Montreal, just before they moved to Ottawa where Gregory enrolled in medicine. Anita also followed Gregory into medicine. She graduated as an M.D., with summa cum laude, just three weeks after the birth of her second daughter, Arianna. They moved to Toronto following her internship where, in the shadow of the cold war at its height, Anita embarked on her second successful career: that of a researcher on the health impacts of radioactive fallout. After publishing close to twenty refereed papers, she decided to launch her third and longest career: that of a dermatologist. She practiced dermatology for some thirty years, much of it in partnership with her daughter Ingrid and with her close friend Peter HACKER. Her final career, running parallel with her dermatology practice, was that of grandmother to Spencer and Colin in whom she invested all the infinite love of which she was capable. In January 2005 she became seriously ill. She died peacefully on June 25, 2006. She was an exceptionally giving person who had a lifelong love affair with her husband, adored her daughters, and loved her brother and his family. But she also had a number of acquired daughters for whom she also became a mother figure: Sheila MURRAY, Iona JAFFE, Rozalia PETROVICS, and Dijana OLIVER. To all of these, and to her close Friends, she will be irreplaceable. A private service has taken place.

SMITH, Donald Edward, M.C. and Bar, M.D., C.M., F.R.C.P.C.
(November 25, 1921-July 11, 2006)
Don grew up in Saint John, New Brunswick with his big brother Bill and his sister Jean. He served overseas in World War 2 in the infantry with the Carlton and York Regiment. He fought courageously in Italy and North-West Europe and was highly decorated for his valour and achievements, receiving the Military Cross as platoon commander and the Bar to the Military Cross as company commander, both in 1944. Just before the end of the War, at the age of 23, while flying to liberate Holland, Major SMITH lost his right leg below the knee and the sight in one eye. After the War, back in Saint John, Donald met Constance MURRAY and proposed to her on Valentine's Day 1946. Later that year, they were married and Donald and Connie moved to Montreal where Don attended medical school at McGill University. Don specialized in Internal Medicine, and then did a residency in London, England. In 1957, Don and Connie moved to Oshawa, Ontario where Don accepted a position at the Oshawa Clinic. Don and Connie promptly proceeded to have their four children. Donald practiced Internal Medicine in Oshawa for 34 years and served for a period as Chief of the Department of Internal Medicine at the Oshawa General Hospital (now Lakeridge Health Oshawa). In the early 1980's he established the first pulmonary function lab and service at the hospital. He retired in 1990 due to his own cardiac health problems. His beloved Connie passed away in 1998, and he missed her greatly. But he finished his days in his family home, which was very dear to him. Fittingly, Don passed away in the coronary care unit at the hospital where he spent so much time helping so many other people. Donald is survived by his sister Jean BAXTER, his brother Bill's wife Mary, and by Don's four children Rod and his wife Patsy, David and his wife Anne, Cathy and her husband Michael, and Edward and his ex-wife Jan, and his eight grandchildren, Emily, Claire, Laura, Hayley, Lysanne, Griffin, Alec, and Dylan. He will be greatly missed, but as one of his grandchildren said "at least Grampie will now be with Grammie". He led a life of great and selfless service to his fellow man. "At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we will remember them." There will be a visitation for Doctor Donald SMITH at the Armstrong Funeral Home, 124 King Street East, Oshawa (905-433-4711) on Friday July 14th from 5-8 p.m. Funeral Service will be private.
