GRUNDY, Robert Slater
It is with great sorrow that the family of Robert GRUNDY announces his passing on July 2 in Lambeth, Ontario at age 85. Robert leaves Mary (POWER) his beautiful wife of 63 years and his three proud children, Donna (James MOSER,) Mount Brydges, Brian, Sarnia and Pam (Randy GLYNN,) Toronto. Memories of "Grandad" will be cherished by Sally and Jake MORGAN (Mercedes SALMON,) Laura and Rob GRUNDY and Sam and Maggie-Rene GRUNDY- GLYNN. Predeceased by his parents Henry and Hilda, Robert will be greatly missed by his brother Donald (Faye,) brother-in-law Steve POWER, many nieces and nephews, Friends, neighbours and former co-workers. Born at home near Burton-On-Trent, England weighing just 2½ pounds , he immigrated to Canada as a child, living in Windsor, Ontario for 80 years. He graduated from Sandwich Collegiate and then served with the Royal Canadian Air Force in World War 2 spending two years overseas as a radar mechanic. He made life-long Friends at John Wyeth&Bros. where he supervised the dispensing section for most of the 44 years he was with the company. He was an active member of the Trinity United church for 30 years and will be best remembered there as the leader of the 13th cub pack for a number of years. Bob and Mary shared a wonderful life together passing on to their children and grandchildren the great gifts of love, music and laughter. He was an entertainer singing and playing guitar for a time on CKLW radio's "Sons of the Saddle" and he amused countless youngsters and adults as a ventriloquist with his trusty dummy "Waldo". He was a "do-it-your-selfer" with an insatiable curiosity for the "way things work" resulting in a number of remarkable inventions. His passion for history, art and politics was surpassed only by his deep reverence for nature. He was a bike-rider, camper, sailor, and environmentalist but most of all he simply liked to have his hands in the earth. Visitation will take place at the Windsor Chapel Funeral Home, 1700 Tecumseh Rd. E. on Thursday, July 6, 2006 from 2-4 and from 7-9 p.m. Funeral Service will be on Friday, July 7, 2006 at 10 a.m. in the Chapel. Interment to follow at Victoria Memorial Gardens.

DOBBIN, Craig Laurence, O.C.
Craig Laurence DOBBIN, O.C., husband, father, grandfather, dear friend, entrepreneur, philanthropist, chairman, founder of the world's largest helicopter corporation and one of Newfoundland and Labrador's proudest sons. Surrounded by his beloved wife, confidante and best friend Elaine, his five children, and his brothers and sisters, at home looking out over the rugged Atlantic Ocean in Beachy Cove, Newfoundland, he presided gracefully and courageously over his final covenant and entered into the arms of the angels at age 71 on October 7, 2006. Craig DOBBIN was born in Saint_John's, Newfoundland on Friday, September 13, 1935, one of 11 children to Rita (POWER) and Patrick. He grew up on King's Bridge Road, a working class neighbourhood. He graduated from St. Bonaventure College in Saint_John's and went on to become one of the global aviation industry's most successful figures. He provided opportunity, support and inspiration to thousands through his businesses, his philanthropy and most importantly through his charming, larger than life, magnanimous character. A fearless buccaneer in the business world, Craig was guided by integrity, honesty and loyalty, and dove passionately into every task he undertook. He sprinkled his many speeches with concise, memorable axioms, including his three favorites: 'Never take no for an answer,' 'Turn adversity into opportunity,' and, his favorite in recent years, 'Time is the enemy.' From his base in Newfoundland, he founded Sealand Helicopters with one aircraft in 1977 and launched CHC Helicopter Corporation in 1987, building the enterprise into the largest helicopter services company in the world through timely acquisitions, strategic decisions and the support of many dedicated, loyal employees. He visited many of the 35 countries in which CHC operates, served as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer and later as Executive Chairman, and delivered his final speech to shareholders with his usual wit and charm, and to lengthy applause, on September 28, 2006 in Vancouver. Craig founded Omega Investments, a Newfoundland real estate company that, combined with his reputation and integrity, provided the leverage and collateral for many of his subsequent ventures. He founded Air Atlantic, a regional fixed-wing airline when the Open Skies Treaty was signed in 1989; created Vector Aerospace through a public offering; built Canadian Helicopters and created CHC Composites Limited. With every success, he was quick to point to his team, describing himself as a casting director rather than a master at business. He recognized talent and had a knack of making every individual feel important and his fellow employees were like family to him. Craig strongly believed in giving back to the community and did so with passion. In the giving of his time and talents, he never looked for recognition, but received it nevertheless for his outstanding generosity, support and encouragement. He was inducted as an Officer of the Order of Canada - which he considered to be his greatest honour he received honorary degrees from Memorial University of Newfoundland, the National University of Ireland and Saint Mary's University in Halifax. He was the Provincial and National Transportation Person of the Year; was awarded the Medaille de l'aeronatique from the Government of France established to reward the individuals who distinguished themselves in the development of aviation was inducted into the Newfoundland and Labrador Business Hall of Fame; was Atlantic Canada's Entrepreneur of the Year and was voted Newfoundland and Labrador's Businessman of the Millennium. Just this past week, Craig received notification that he was to be inducted into Canada's Aviation Hall of Fame in June 2007 for his lifetime of work and achievement in the aviation industry. He was a fiercely proud Newfoundlander, a loyal Canadian and honoured citizen of the Republic of Ireland. Craig served as Honourary Consul General of Ireland for Newfoundland and Labrador and was Chairman of the Ireland-Canada University Foundation in Dublin. Equally at ease with presidents, princes and those less fortunate, he supported, sometimes anonymously, many causes. He endowed the Robert M. Kotloff/Nancy P. Blumenthal Professorship for Advanced Lung Disease at the University of Pennsylvania and served as Honourary Chairman and Patron for various non-profit organizations including the Lung Association of Newfoundland and Labrador; Newfoundland Cancer Treatment and Research Foundation The Janeway Children's Hospital Foundation; The Health Care Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador; Memorial University and others. He was named Outstanding Individual Philanthropist by the Canadian Society of Fundraising Executives. He will be greatly missed and fondly remembered by thousands. Leaving to mourn his wife, Elaine; daughters Joanne (Brian SEARS;) Carolyn; sons Mark (Sandra) Craig (Lisa); David (Penny); and their mother Eleanor. Step-children Kellee CARTER (Jason); Scott PARSONS (Karen); Robin PARSONS (Callie). Grandchildren Isobel DOBBIN- SEARS; Tim ROSE; Christine ROSE Kelly ROSE; Sally HOLLOWAY; Jane HOLLOWAY; Eleanor HOLLOWAY Megan DOBBIN; Maria DOBBIN; Michael DOBBIN; Zachary DOBBIN; Jake DOBBIN; Gillian DOBBIN; Heather DOBBIN; Jayne CARTER; Kate CARTER Lily PARSONS; Hilary PARSONS; Sisters Maureen (Dr. Justin MacCARTHY) Marion (Dr. Walter TUCKER); Rita (Edwin DODGE), Margo (William STINSON); Brothers Basil, Dermot (Cyndi); Barney (Elizabeth) sister-in-law, Joan DOBBIN.

FICK, Ruth Anna (formerly POWERS, née WOOLL)
Died peacefully in her 92nd year after losing a fight with pneumonia in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. Ruth was born in Saginaw, Michigan, to the late John Oliver WOOLL and the former Edith Eliza BAILEY. Ruth attended Saginaw High and continued her education with secretarial studies. She met a young Canadian Evangelist, the Reverend George Max POWERS, senior. They fell in love, were married, moved to Sarnia, had four daughters and later moved to Walsingham where George pastored the Free Methodist church; there they had a son. George died of cancer in 1947 and Ruth continued as a lay pastor in Walsingham for the next three years. In 1951 Ruth was again in love and married William Ernest FICK, senior, of Marston. The family moved to a farm at R.R.#3, Tillsonburg where Ruth had another son. Ruth had a full life, raising a family, farming, playing an active role in the Cornell Women's Institute, and for many years holding positions of service at the Tillsonburg Free Methodist church: youth leader, Sunday school teacher, pianist, organist and board secretary. Ernest died in 1990 and in 1993 Ruth moved to the senior apartments at 31 Maple Lane, Tillsonburg, where she met many new Friends. In 2005 she moved to the F.J. Davey Home in Sault Ste. Marie, where she quickly adapted, again making more new Friends and enjoying delicious meals. Until contracting pneumonia, she remained mentally active, e-mailing and chatting online, and hearing, for the first time, a live performance of Handel's Messiah - a special treat was arriving early, catching the end of rehearsal and hearing her favourite song, the Hallelujah Chorus, twice. It is common to hear her Friends and family say they valued her Friendship and prayer support. Her passing is their loss, not hers. She will be deeply missed. Ruth was the dear mother and mother-in-law of Lois STOVER; Tillsonburg; Geraldine POWERS (deceased 2001;) Edith GARWOOD (deceased 1999,) Don (Pat) GARWOOD, Uruguay; Ruth (Joseph) INFURNARI, Dunnville; George POWERS (deceased 1995,) Linda MAE- POWERS, Haliburton; and William (Carol) FICK, Sault Ste. Marie. Ruth had 14 grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren. She prayed for them all daily. Ruth was predeceased by one sister and four brothers. Ruth is resting at Verhoeve Funeral Home, 262 Broadway, Tillsonburg, Ontario (519-842-4238) where service will be held in the chapel on Saturday, January 21st, 2006 at 1: 30 p.m. by Reverend Douglas J. DAWSON of the Free Methodist Church, Tillsonburg. Interment to follow at Mount Pleasant Cemetery, Walsingham, Ontario.

In loving memory of our dear husband and father, Glen POWERS, who passed away March 25, 2005.
Our thoughts are always with you,
Your place no one will fill,
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we love you still.
We know you walk beside us,
And when our lives are through,
We pray that God will take our hands,
And take us straight to you.
They say time heals everything,
But we know that isn't so,
Because it hurts as much today,
As it did one year ago.

JONES, (Annie) Angus (née McEWAN)
Peacefully, on March 19th, 2006, at her residence at Chateau Gardens, London, Ann joined her beloved husband of 71 years, Ira Elbert JONES, who predeceased her on January 3rd, 2006. Annie Angus McEWAN was born to Charles Baskerville McEWAN and Mary Lachlan ANGUS on November 23rd, 1915, in Dundas, Ontario. Her Scots heritage on both sides of her house was a continuing source of pride to her that is shared by her children. Ann was the eldest of four siblings. Two have predeceased her: Marjorie (Donald) POWERS and Gordon McEWAN, both of London, Ontario. One surviving brother, John (Jack) McEWAN, lives in Vernon, British Columbia. Ira and Ann were married on June 1st, 1934 at the Reorganized Church of Latter Day Saints in Chatham, Ontario. Ann and Ira's six children remember her with great love and pride: Ira Gordon (Pat) JONES, Waterloo, Ontario; Elbert Angus (Zibby) JONES, Bayfield, Ontario; Marjorie Ann CUNNINGHAM, London, Ontario; Dorothy Louise (Luca) RICCIO, North Vancouver, British Columbia; Douglas Murray JONES, London, Ontario and Janet Mary (Helmut RIEGGER) JONES, London, Ontario. Fondly remembering their Grandmother are twelve grandchildren: Carolyn (David) KINGSTON of Ottawa; Clark (Karen) JONES of Mississauga; Evan (Kayo) JONES of Yasu City, Shiga, Japan; Matthew (Annette WEERES) JONES and Michael (Karen NOBLE) JONES of Stratford; Linda (Tim GOODALL) CUNNINGHAM, Lisa (Ben MOOGK) CUNNINGHAM, of Toronto; Sarah (Dan INNAMORATI) CUNNINGHAM of Vancouver; Nadia MOUSSEAU of Kingston; Silvia RICCIO and Davide RICCIO of North Vancouver and Hazel MILES of London. Gifted with a prodigious memory well into her eighties, Ann continued to acknowledge family anniversaries, birthdays, graduations and other milestones. Great Grannie Annie particularly enjoyed marking special events for the youngest ones, sending cards for Easter, Hallowe'en to her seven great grandchildren: Julia KINGSTON of Ottawa; Selena JONES and Colin JONES of Mississauga; Sean Ira JONES, Yasu City, Shiga, Japan; Leah JONES of Calgary; and Clara Ann GOODALL and Cameron McEwan GOODALL of Toronto. Ann and Ira resided at various times in a number of Southwestern Ontario locations: Chatham, Dresden, Hamilton, Dundas, Walkerton, Brantford and London. Prior to moving to the Longworth Retirement Residence in 2003, they lived for many years on Glenrose Drive in Byron. In 2004, she and Ira moved together to Chateau Gardens Long Term Care Residence in London. Ann was a member of the Woodfield Branch of the Community of Christ, in London. We remember the continuing pride and admiration in which she was held by Ira, for the courage she displayed during World War 2, when she held their family together, a dedicated mother to their children, managing all the while to be cheerful and resourceful, despite her concerns for Ira's safety overseas. Most of all, we will remember a cheerful, generous, selfless woman who spent a lifetime putting others first. We love her and we are sad to see her go but we take solace in the knowledge that Mom and Dad are together again, the way it has always been and the way they would want it to be forever. Cremation has taken place. Visitation in the Needham Funeral Chapel, 520 Dundas Street, London, on Saturday, April 8, 2006 from 2: 00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. Service from the chapel at 3:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, a donation in Ann's honour to your favourite charity would be greatly appreciated.

POWNALL o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2006-06-06 published
Leon POWNALL, Actor, Writer And Director: (1943-2006)
Dedicated thespian who went from high-school drama classes to playing Shakespeare on stage at the Stratford Festival was a firebrand who found stardom. All the same, he never lost his faith in grassroots theatre companies
Canadian Press; Globe and Mail archives, Page S9
Stratford, Ontario -- It made sense that Leon POWNALL found inspiration in the work and life of Dylan Thomas. They were both born in Wales and they both worshipped the magic of language. Although the connection ended there -- Mr. POWNALL left Wales as a boy and it was all over for Dylan Thomas by the time the great Welsh poet drank himself to death at 39 -- the influence remained deep and ingrained until 18 months ago when Mr. Thomas brought his play Do Not Go Gentle to the stage in Stratford, Ontario
The results were intoxicating, and had much to do with Mr. POWNALL's harmonic structure. A Shakespearian actor, he had written the play in 1982 under the title Dylan Thomas Bach (bach being Welsh for dear) and judiciously mixed Thomas's poetry, recollections and all the man's demons.
It was Mr. POWNALL's final venture into theatre. Appropriately enough, it was staged by PostScript Productions, a new theatre company based in Stratford, Ontario, that was dedicated to Canadian playwrights. To throw in his lot with an underdog was something he had done all his life.
"He was a wonderful actor as well as a director and a writer, said Richard MONETTE, artistic director for the Stratford Festival. "He was last here directing Do Not Go Gentle… and though he could be difficult, he had a heart of gold."
Leon POWNALL who, spent 14 seasons with the Stratford Festival, arrived in Canada with his family in 1957. The POWNALLs settled in Hamilton, Ontario, where the teenage Leon went to Hamilton's Central High School and discovered a deep fascination in acting. Inspired by his drama teacher, he was accepted to the National Theatre School of Canada in 1964. Coincidentally, he also received an offer to join the Stratford Festival for that year's season. He chose Stratford over the school in Montreal, beginning a relationship with Canada's premier theatre company that would last eight consecutive seasons, progressing from playing messengers and pages to such roles as Henry V (1966) and Laertes (1969).
From Stratford, Mr. POWNALL moved to British Columbia. He took a hiatus from theatre, running his own business in Vancouver and seemed to have given up treading the boards until he started teaching drama at the Matsqui Penitentiary in Abbotsford. That experience convinced him to return to the theatre. He worked as artistic director of the White Rock Summer Theatre and took a position as artist-in-residence at the University of British Columbia.
In 1983, he also founded the Shakespeare Plus festival in Nanaimo, British Columbia, with high hopes that what the bard had done for Stratford he would again do for Vancouver Island. By August of 1985, the dream had faded. Labouring under a deficit of $100,000, his company had staged just three plays and only half the seats in its 300-seat theatre were sold.
By then, however, he had again been well and truly bitten by the theatre bug. In 1986, he went back to Stratford to portray Henry VIII. It was a triumphant return. He played the infamous Henry as an insolent, energetic young king who verged on the unkingly in a manner that unsettled some theatre-goers. In the scene in which a conspiracy of nobles try to exile one of Henry's appointees, the actor announced his presence on stage by absently whistling a tune from upstage. Subsequent Stratford roles included Claudius in Hamlet; Long John Silver in Treasure Island (1991) and Mark Antony in Antony and Cleopatra (1993).
In the meantime, Mr. POWNALL continued to surface at remoter venues, as much to support small companies that he believed deserved help.
In 1987, he played an older Elvis Presley in Are You Lonesome Tonight? at the Charlottetown Festival in Prince Edward Island. The play, the subject of a local furor because of its strong language, represented a new direction for the festival, which was known for family plays such as Anne of Green Gables. The play required two actors. Ben Bass impersonated the young Elvis, and Mr. POWNALL impersonated the older and drug-ridden Elvis.
The production held "up a mirror to society," Mr. POWNALL told a local reporter. "It takes a very good look at how society deals with success and the people who achieve it. There's a great quote at the start of Alan Bleasdale's script for Are You Lonesome Tonight? which says, essentially, that America always kills its heroes."
At the time, the head of publicity at the Charlottetown Festival was Moira DANN, now an editor at The Globe and Mail. That year, Mr. POWNALL played opposite ends of the character continuum, she said. "Are You Lonesome Tonight? alternated on the main stage along with Anne Of Green Gables and Leon played Matthew in Anne and the older Elvis in Lonesome."
Mr. POWNALL had a ritual for "becoming" Elvis, said Ms. DANN, who is editor of Facts and Arguments.
"It started at around 5: 30 p.m. every day, long before his 7:30 call. He'd have a bite to eat in his dressing room, and start easing into bits of his costume; his voice would acquire a Southern accent as he listened to the music from the show while he put on his makeup. By the time he put on the wig [around 7: 15], the transformation was complete: Leon was Elvis.
"And there was no cajoling him out of it; if you wanted to deal with Leon, you'd have to wait until after he'd cold-creamed off the last bit of makeup."
A year later, Mr. POWNALL took on the operation of a small company in Toronto. It was to be yet another doomed project. In late July of 1988, he was named artistic director of Toronto Workshop Productions. The company was struggling under an accumulated debt of $250,000. "It was like, poor old dog Toronto Workshop Productions is sleeping on the sidewalk, and everybody takes a kick at it as they go by," he said. "I decided that we had to be positive and not get involved in squabbles that lead nowhere."
By October, however, the doors of Toronto Workshop Productions had been padlocked by its board of trustees after a dispute with a previous artistic director about plans to redevelop the property at 12 Alexander Street, which was then the oldest continuous professional theatre in Toronto.
Meanwhile, Mr. POWNALL kept busy on television and in movies. Later that year, he appeared in a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation production about the First World War called The Killing Ground in which he played Canon Frederick Scott, a middle-aged army chaplain who tragically found his son's remains on a battlefield. In 1989, he landed the role of a teacher in Dead Poet's Society opposite Robin Williams, and in 1997, he was nominated for a Gemini for his role as Doctor Ewen Cameron in The Sleep Room, an ambitious mini-series about the Montreal psychiatrist who thought he could find a dramatic cure for mental illness using psychedelic drugs and electroshock therapy. His work attracted the attention of the Central Intelligence Agency, which had its own reasons for wanting to know more about the limits of the human brain.
Mr. POWNALL played Cameron as a man equally driven by ego and obsession. Cameron, he said, was no pantomime villain. "Ewen Cameron was not a monster who came out of some alien egg and suddenly appeared on the scene," he told The Globe and Mail. "This was someone who was hailed as one of the great modern minds of psychiatry. In Brandon, Manitoba, he transformed the mental institution there from a medieval fortress into a Garden of Eden where people with various mental disorders could find the time and peace and tolerance to seek a recovery. It was only when he got into the brainwashing techniques at the Allan Institute that he took on the masque macabre."
Among Mr. POWNALL's other appearances were principal parts in Bethune, How the West was Fun, Love and Hate, Million Dollar Babies and the title role in Handel's Last Chance. He also made guest appearances on The Road to Avonlea, Forever Knight, Street Legal, The Beachcombers and Slings and Arrows.
For all his success, he never failed to pitch in to show his support for struggling theatre companies. "Hell no, we're not gonna lie down and die," he declared characteristically at the opening of the 1995 Atlantic Theatre Festival in Wolfville, Nova Scotia "We're gonna make great theatre."
Leon POWNALL was born in Wrexham, in northern Wales, on April 26, 1943. He died of cancer in Stratford, Ontario, on June 2. He was 63. He leaves two children, Monty and Peter.

Leon POWNALL excelled on stage, television and film
By Richard OUZOUNIAN, Theatre Critic, Page A8
Leon POWNALL, an actor well known for his stage appearances across Canada as well as his work on television and film, died of cancer at Stratford General Hospital yesterday morning. He was 63.
POWNALL was born in Wales and emigrated to Canada with his family in 1957. He joined the Stratford Festival in 1964 and appeared with it frequently until 2002, where his Shakespearean roles included Henry VIII, Antony and Claudius.
He appeared from coast to coast in roles as varied as Elvis Presley for the Charlottetown Festival and Sheridan Whiteside for the Vancouver Playhouse.
Among his many feature films, he will best be remembered for his role as McAllister opposite Robin Williams in Dead Poets' Society and on television he was nominated for a Gemini for playing Dr. Ewen Cameron in the mini-series The Sleep Room.
Yesterday, Stratford's Artistic Director, Richard MONETTE, remembered POWNALL as "a wonderful actor as well as a director and a writer."
POWNALL had also become closely associated with the work of Dylan Thomas, creating and performing a one-man show about the Welsh poet called Do Not Go Gentle. Geraint Wyn Davies later took over the role, including a run at Stratford in 2002 and a successful engagement off-Broadway. POWNALL's last appearance was in Four Minutes, a television movie about runner Roger Bannister.
He leaves his parents, two sons and a stepdaughter.
