KERN, Doctor Rolf Robert
On the evening of Friday, April 21, 2006, Rolf succumbed to heart failure and passed away peacefully at Saint Michael's Hospital in Toronto. After thirteen years battling prostate cancer and five years post kidney failure, his strength could endure no more for his 78 years. Predeceased in 1998 by Inge, his wife of 40 years, Rolf was a loving and devoted father to his three girls Rona and husband Luke O'CONNOR of Los Angeles, Barbara and husband Dougal MacDONALD of Toronto and Petra and husband James SWAYZE of Toronto. His five grandchildren, Elina O'CONNOR, Katrina MacDONALD and Spencer, Olivia and Erika SWAYZE will miss their beloved Opi who leaves a legacy as a caring and conscientious patriarch. Born on August 5, 1927, to Friedrich and Lina in Freiburg, Germany, Rolf and brother Fritz worked the Bakerei Kern before a war-torn Germany saw him imprisoned in a Siberian camp at the age of 18. Before immigrating to Toronto, Canada in 1958 to help spearhead the North American expansion of the Gerling Konzern insurance operations, Rolf completed his PhD in Economics at the University of Freiburg. During his studies, Rolf traveled extensively and was honored as the first German student invited to the United States by the Rotary Club. His business savvy and intelligence earned him the position of President and Director of Gerling Global General and Reinsurance companies where he led the organization to an unprecedented record of 10 straight years of underwriting profit. His passion for beauty in many forms was evident in the rose gardens of his Willowdale home and Muskoka cottage and in his appreciation of music and modern dance. His intuitive investment philosophy saw continued success beyond his retirement where his keen sense for resource stocks and currency trading earned him a following in financial circles. Revered for his wisdom and respected for his strength of character and integrity his greatest attribute was his generosity. As a mentor to future leaders, a helping hand to those in need or the simple gesture of chocolates for the parking attendant, Rolf concerned himself with the well being of others above all. Spiritually, through meditation and yoga, his belief in Buddhist teachings and the reincarnation of the soul will ensure that he will always be among us. 'Life is hard if you take it hard' was his mantra and few people could boast such a robust and fulfilling existence - every day he was with us, Rolf KERN truly lived. Special thanks to Lilia ABOC who was not only a caregiver but a companion to Rolf for many years and whose devotion shone through in his final days. Doctor BAXTER, Nurse Sam and rest of the team deserve credit for making his stay at Saint Michael's so pleasant towards the end. Thanks must also go to the extraordinary group of nurses led by Doctor GOLDSTEIN in the hemodialysis unit of the hospital for their help in sustaining Rolf's life through the past 5 years with kindness and compassion. A celebration of Rolf's life will take place at the Granite Club located at 2350 Bayview Avenue north of Lawrence this Friday, April 28, 2006, from 5: 00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. with a tribute at 6: 30 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Hemodialysis Unit, Saint Michael's Hospital expressed in the name of Rolf KERN, would be appreciated.

O'CONNOR, Lieut. William Joseph " Bill"
Peacefully at home, on Thursday December 28, 2006, after a long fight with cancer, cared for by his daughter Candace, granddaughter Samantha and son-in-law Alan SIMMONDS. Born in St. Catharines in 1916, he grew up in Sault Ste Marie one of five siblings, Alphonsus, Patrick, Thomas Joseph and Mariam. The last two survive him. He was a hero of the Sault's baseball and basketball teams, but his real fame came from his superb tenor voice. After serving with the Canadian Navy for six years during World War 2, he appeared in "Meet The Navy" on London's West End, beginning a fourteen year career as a leading man in musicals such as "Brigadoon", "Love from Judy" and "The Little Minister". He also appeared on television and in films, and had his own radio show "Bill O'Connor's Song Book" on the British Broadcasting Corporation. He returned home to Canada in 1962 when his wife June was diagnosed with M.S. and "retired" from show business. He began a 25 year career with the Canadian Cancer Society as a District Director, a job he cherished and excelled at. After his wife's death in June 1998, he bought a condo in Florida and spent many happy months there, often accompanied by his dear friend Muriel Lambert, widow of Jack, a former school mate who had introduced him to the Canadian Cancer Society. Bill was a keen golfer and at 84 he returned to Scotland, England and Ireland to see old Friends and play favourite courses. Kidney failure in February 2006 put a halt to his golf and with great bravery he faced his ensuing illness. A Funeral Mass will be held at St. Pius X Catholic Church, 2305 Bloor St. W. (east of Windermere) date and time to be confirmed. If desired, remembrances may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society. Funeral arrangements entrusted to the Turner and Porter "Yorke" Chapel, 416-767-3153.
