SINCLAIR, Margaret
The family of Margaret SINCLAIR would like to express our heartfelt appreciation for all the support we have received since the death of our beloved mother. In her last few weeks we were overwhelmed by the wonderful care given by the Parameds, the Victorian Order of Nurses nurses and the tender assistance provided by Peggy Luxton's staff of Caring Hands. We will always be grateful to Dr. CHAN for the medical services he continued to provide for our mother. The floral tributes, donations, cards, gifts of food and other expressions of sympathy have been very comforting to us throughout this difficult time. We were deeply touched by the provision of a catered meal in our home courtesy of the culinary talents of Ruth BUTLER, May HOWES, Tina WATSON and Ben WILTON. Thank you to Rob Fawcett and his excellent team for their attention to every detail. We could not have asked for more consideration on our behalf. A special thank you to the staff at Hair Fair for styling mom's hair exactly as she would have liked, complete with the little net. Mother always wished her service to be conducted from Gentle Shepherd Church and her wish was granted with special gifts of beauty. We thank Pastor Ann GILLIES for her thoughtful message and her kind words of comfort, her son, Matthew, for his mastery of the sound system and the lovely harmony of Dianne CARLSON, Judy MacNEILL and Irene LITTLE, skillfully accompanied by Heather WIGHT. Krista BULLOCK's piano solo was a special tribute to her great-grandmother. We extend sincere appreciation to the Gentle Shepherd Women, under the capable coordination of Joan McGEE, for providing such a delicious lunch. Reverend PRINCE's visit to our home on Christmas Eve day will always be a treasured memory. Perhaps the best way we can thank this community in its entirety, is through Mom's own words which we recently discovered in a written message to her family, "God bless you all".
-The SINCLAIR Family

WRIGHT, Donald "Don" John Alexander, B.A., D.M., L.M., Member of Order of Canada
Don passed away peacefully at his home in Toronto after a brief illness on June 27th, 2006 in his 98th year. His beloved wife Lillian, his life partner and best friend, predeceased him on January 12, 1993. Sadly missed and fondly remembered by his sister Dr. Mary Jean WRIGHT of London, Ontario, son Timothy and his wife Sharon (née EMPRINGHAM) of Sarnia, daughter Priscilla of Toronto, son Patrick (predeceased in 1993), grand_sons and granddaughters Christopher and his wife Katrin (née ZEUNER) of Toronto, Brian and his wife Susan (née PRINCE) of Australia, Pamela WHITTAKER of Delaware, Ontario, Liam and his wife Louise of Toronto, Alyssa of Cannington and Doctor Tarah and her husband Daniel of Halifax, great-grand_sons Connor, Kyle, Corwin, Benjamin and Aidan, and great-granddaughters Cassidy and Lilly. Don really lived a charmed life. He was born in Strathroy, Ontario to Ernest and Jean (nee CLARK) WRIGHT in 1908. He had three brothers and a sister Doctor Mary WRIGHT. The family was very involved in theatre and music and the boys formed the "Wright Brothers Orchestra" which had a great following during their school years and on through university. Don met his "Lilly Belle" (Lillian (née MEIGHEN,) the daughter of the Right Honourable Arthur MEIGHEN and his wife Isabel (nee COX) at one of the dances and the rest was history. They courted each other for their entire lives together. At the University of Western Ontario, Don started the U.W.O. marching band -- an institution that continues to this day. He was a very successful athlete as a sprinter, high hurdler and his long jump record of twenty-three feet, eight inches held for over a quarter century. Don taught music, history, Latin and Greek for several years at Sir Adam Beck Collegiate in London and all of his classes were over-subscribed. His pedagogical talents were prodigious and his former pupils still rave about his classes more than 60 years after he taught them. Don became supervisor of music for the London Board of Education and from there he was recruited to take over the reins of CFPL Radio. He completely remodeled the studios and control rooms and simultaneously brought new and exciting programming to life. He increased the audience levels many times over. His " CFPL Goes Calling" brought many talented people (both musical and other forms of radio entertainment) onto the airwaves. Such voices as Max Ferguson (Rawhide), Ward Cornell, John Tretheway and Murray Brown were all brought into CFPL by Don. His outstanding creation while there was his "Don Wright Chorus" which entranced audiences throughout both Canada and the U.S. all through the early 1950s. Don moved to Toronto in 1955 and continued his advertising "jingle" business in addition to being Musical Director for the Denny Vaughn Show, Wayne and Schuster and the Cliff McKey show "Holiday Ranch". He developed a new radio choir called the Don Wright Singers which performed for several years. As his career matured he composed a series of provincial anthems presented in a performance package called "Proudly we Praise", a tribute to Canada, which could be performed by professionals or amateurs, and Don was very proud to be asked to arrange and conduct a performance of this work on Parliament Hill on Canada's Centennial for Queen Elizabeth II. Don's philanthropy in later years was generous and impressive. He donated to track and field endeavours and musical programmes at many universities across Canada. He received several Honourary Doctorates from Canadian Universities for these efforts, and the faculties of music at U.W.O. and Victoria University bear his name. Grace Hospital in Toronto as well as Saint Michael's Hospital's maternity centres bear his and Lillian's names. A celebration of his life will be held in Saint_James Cathedral, 65 Church Street, (at King Street East) Toronto on Thursday, July 6th at 11 o'clock. A reception will follow. Private entombment in the family niche at Mount Pleasant Cemetery. Please direct any donations to the charity of your choice. Humphrey Funeral Home A.W. Miles Chapel 416-487-4523

PRINCE, Walter Harry
By Judith WALKER, Page A14
Husband, father, granddad, brother, colleague, friend. Born September 20, 1927, in Windsor, Ontario Died November 27, 2005 of thyroid cancer, in Windsor, aged 78.
Walter should be getting ready to open up the cottage for another season. But this year, his family has to figure it out all on their own. Fortunately, Dad had the foresight to prepare us for everything from broken pipes and downed trees, to getting the Adirondack chairs out on the boathouse deck.
Life was full of accomplishments that warmed his heart. Beginning with a successful career in law and a loving marriage of 50 years, with two children and five grandchildren, each of whom brought Walter great pride -- every day was one to be thankful for.
However, Walter's true appreciation for all he had was most evident while at the cottage on Lake Huron. His wife Janet introduced him to the area shortly after they married. A rather barren shore, shallow waters and an isolated intersection called Oliphant, became in no time a paradise for a young family that loved endless summers.
One of his greatest accomplishments was building the red cottage by the lake. That (and everything around it) were his pride and joy. The boathouse became "Granddad-Central." During the summer months, he would conduct his practice from the boathouse, known affectionately as "Shorelaw."
When not on his computer or receiving a fax, he could be found in the attached woodworking shop, covered in sawdust. Grandchildren would gather to be measured for the annual mark on the beer fridge (or door frame when they got taller), and to help in the workshop with sanding and hammering a doll's bed or toy boat to play with. Woodworking for him was not just the chance to build a practical piece of furniture, but also the challenge to make something unique and beautiful. Even at home in Windsor, he had a sawdust getaway. With two woodworking "studios," Dad had plenty of opportunity to create. The smell of exotic woods, the graceful turn of a table leg or a smooth-grained surface: these gave Dad much satisfaction and pride. Family and Friends were the grateful recipients of many treasures, from cutting boards and chess boards to stools and fine pieces of furniture. When he drove away from the cottage last summer, little did he know he would never return to his favourite place on this earth.
Dad/Granddad lived his life with a set of values he believed in and hoped to impart to his children and their children. Once there were grandchildren on the scene, creating "memories" became important to Granddad, especially as they got older and also came to appreciate the importance of family. Whenever the opportunity presented itself, Granddad would tell a story and within it weave a message for his grandchildren to take away with them.
Friends will recall stimulating dinner conversations; colleagues will wish they had the chance to confer with him regarding legal issues; his grandchildren will long for his attentiveness and those good times; his children will think of their father every day trying to live their lives well, without new words of advice to help -- and his wife will treasure all that they shared, keeping his kindness and love in her heart, always.
Walter's family will return to the red cottage on Lake Huron this spring with a sadness they have never known. However, each day will bring fond memories and we will sit on the deck in the evening watching another spectacular Oliphant sunset disappear into the horizon, finding comfort in its warmth and a sense of contentment as Dad's spirit whispers "Going, going… Gone."
Judith is Walter's daughter.

WRIGHT, Donald "Don" John Alexander, B.A., D.M., L.M.,
Member of Order of Canada.
Don passed away peacefully at his home in Toronto after a brief illness on June 27th, 2006 in his 98th year. His beloved wife Lillian, his life partner and best friend, predeceased him on January 12, 1993. Sadly missed and fondly remembered by his sister Dr. Mary Jean WRIGHT of London, Ontario, son Timothy and his wife Sharon (née EMPRINGHAM) of Sarnia, daughter Priscilla of Toronto, son Patrick (predeceased in 1993), grand_sons and granddaughters Christopher and his wife Katrin (née ZEUNER) of Toronto, Brian and his wife Susan (née PRINCE) of Australia, Pamela WHITTAKER of Delaware, Ontario, Liam and his wife Louise of Toronto, Alyssa of Cannington and Doctor Tarah and her husband Daniel of Halifax, great-grand_sons Connor, Kyle, Corwin, Benjamin and Aidan, and great-granddaughters Cassidy and Lilly. Don really lived a charmed life. He was born in Strathroy, Ontario to Ernest and Jean (nee CLARK) WRIGHT in 1908. He had three brothers and a sister Doctor Mary WRIGHT. The family was very involved in theatre and music and the boys formed the "Wright Brothers Orchestra" which had a great following during their school years and on through university. Don met his "Lilly Belle" (Lillian (née MEIGHEN,) the daughter of the Right Honourable Arthur MEIGHEN and his wife Isabel (nee COX) at one of the dances and the rest was history. They courted each other for their entire lives together. At the University of Western Ontario, Don started the U.W.O. marching band - an institution that continues to this day. He was a very successful athlete as a sprinter, high hurdler and his long jump record of twenty-three feet, eight inches held for over a quarter century. Don taught music, history, Latin and Greek for several years at Sir Adam Beck Collegiate in London and all of his classes were over-subscribed. His pedagogical talents were prodigious and his former pupils still rave about his classes more than 60 years after he taught them. Don became supervisor of music for the London Board of Education and from there he was recruited to take over the reins of CFPL Radio. He completely remodeled the studios and control rooms and simultaneously brought new and exciting programming to life. He increased the audience levels many times over. His " CFPL Goes Calling" brought many talented people (both musical and other forms of radio entertainment) onto the airwaves. Such voices as Max Ferguson (Rawhide), Ward Cornell, John Tretheway and Murray Brown were all brought into CFPL by Don. His outstanding creation while there was his "Don Wright Chorus" which entranced audiences throughout both Canada and the U.S. all through the early 1950s.

PRINCE, Nelson Peter (April 8th, 1931-July 12th, 2006)
Nelson died peacefully in his sleep after a long fight with illness on Wednesday July 12, 2006. Those who knew him and saw him through these past 11 months came away from this experience with a great respect for who and what he was, and in awe of his tremendous strength against all odds, defying the best medical minds and creating his own miracles in defeating death more than once. Nelson was born and raised in Barry's Bay, Ontario. He left school in Grade six to work in the logging camps, sending money home to his widowed mother to tend to his siblings. Prior to his illness Nelson enjoyed 20 years of retirement after serving with Canadian National Railways for 37 years. He started sweeping floors at Union Station and rose through the ranks to General Yard Master responsible for all inbound and outbound train traffic coming through the 'Mac' Yard. Every train whistle is a reminder of the man who got them moving on time. A prolific Gardener, most neighbours and Friends sought the advice of 'The Master Gardener'. An avid fisherman, he could be found along the streams and rivers surrounding Greater Toronto, pulling in the big one's and often releasing them for another day. He will be dearly missed by his five children and his 12 Grandchildren. Daughter Rhonda and Doug and Spencer; son Roger and Peggy and Andrew, Matthew, Michael and Hayden; son Richard and Cathy and Christopher, Katie, and Stephen; Daughter Robin and Melissa and Justin; Daughter Renee and Taylor and Dylan. Nelson is survived by his sisters and their spouses, Irene and Stan; Mary and Tony; Stella and Paul; Dorothy and Dan; and brothers and their spouses, Julian and Betty; Clemence and Joan; Bernard and Cathy; and Raymond; and predeceased by his brothers Leonard and Joe. In an email from Nelson's son Roger to his own son Matt in Taiwan, Roger wrote: 'We are all connected in spirit and I am proud of the inner strength and courage that Grandpa has shared with us all. It is a part of who we are and I know that his gentle soul, compassion, strength and appreciation of all, is in each of us. I am thankful for the legacy that he has left in us and with us. I am my Father's son'. Friends may call at the DicksonGarland Funeral Home at 166 Main Street North in Markham on Thursday July 13th from 6-8 p.m. A service in memory of Nelson will be held at the funeral home on Friday July 14th at 11: 00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Diabetes Foundation would be greatly appreciated.

PRINGLE, Ella
In loving memory of a dear Mom, Grandmother and Great-Grandmother who passed away one year ago, July 1st, 2005.
She had a loving nature
And a heart as pure as god,
She always had a smiling face
And a story to be told.
A wonderful sense of humour
And a twinkle in her eye,
A helping hand in times of need,
On that you could rely.
Maybe we can't touch her hand
Or see her smiling face,
And maybe we can't hear her voice
Or feel her warm embrace
But something we will always have
Tucked safely in our hearts,
Our love for her, her love for us,
Will never let us part.
- Lovingly remembered by son Bill and Marilyn WESTLAKE and families.

Art JOHNS, Engineer (1936-2006)
He was an fervent and proselytizing pipes-wires-and-beams sort of engineer who transformed one of Canada's largest firms and, in the process, rose to become its chairman
By Noreen SHANAHAN. Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
If Art JOHNS were a teacher and we were his students, he'd stand before us with a piece of chalk in his hand and the first word he'd write on the blackboard would be "Engineer." He'd be a patient teacher, guiding us with his knowledge rather than attacking our ignorance.
But Art JOHNS wasn't a teacher, he was an engineer and former chairman of the Canadian consulting firm Morrison Hershfield who spent an enormous amount of time dusting off the engineer image and guiding it into the light from beneath the shadow of the architect. Pipes, wires, and beams may not be as pretty as the building itself, he'd likely say, but they are the stuff that keep the works working and the public safe. And what is this thing, engineering?
"You're sitting in it. You just ate it. You were entertained by it," Mr. JOHNS once told an awards audience. "You drove in it. You may have flown in it. You ride in it. You wear it. You listen to it and talk into it. You drink it and you breathe it. It warms you and it cools you. It's everywhere you live."
According to Ron Wilson, Morrison Hershfield Chief Executive Officer and Art JOHNS's successor, Mr. JOHNS took the profession's responsibilities very seriously. "Engineers have a duty to protect the public, much like doctors have a duty to protect individuals from a health concern. Engineers probably save more lives than doctors and so, from a humanitarian perspective moving society forward and making it more successful, engineers play a very significant role. But most engineers tend to forget that, because they're down in the details, working out the problems."
Art JOHNS grew up in Scarborough, Ontario, as the son of British immigrants. His father, Charles, was from Manchester, while his mother, Josephine, was born in Belfast. His father had arrived in Canada with nothing, worked hard until he owned a parking lot in downtown Toronto and was determined that his son would get a good education.
Young Art did well in high school, where he excelled at football. The JOHNS family likes to tell a story about how he won the high school football finals on a decidedly soggy field. The team blasted to success at the same time that Hurricane Hazel blasted through Toronto in 1954. "They continued playing in mud and water, and only after the game was won did they realize how severe the storm really was," said his son, Brad JOHNS.
When it was over, he left arm in arm with Ruth MATHERS, his high school sweetheart, whom he married soon after graduation.
Mr. JOHNS attended the University of Toronto and in 1960 earned a degree in civil engineering. Two years later, he received his masters at the University of Illinois and began work for Morrison Hershfield.
Mr. JOHNS's greatest feat was also one of the first tests of his career. As a newly minted engineer, he was made responsible for the structural design and site supervision of the massive Medical Science Building at the University of Toronto. He was 29 years old.
According to Janet Jensen, marketing co-ordinator for Morrison Hershfield, Mr. JOHNS was scared to death by the huge responsibility and said it was as though he had been thrown into a deep pool. He was sustained, however, by the thought that the company's founders stood at the edge. He said they were ready to pull him out if necessary, but otherwise let him get on with the job. He soon became a principal in the firm.
Over the years, he also designed and inspected towers for Bell Canada, Canadian National and Canadian Broadcasting Corporation from coast to coast, and worked on the structural design of the Stratford Festival Theatre, the Memorial University Health Sciences Complex in Saint_John's, several Sears stores, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation head office in Ottawa, buildings at universities in Saskatchewan and Sudbury, plus large supermarkets for the Dominion and Steinberg's chains.
Understandably, his work demanded a great deal of travel. In 1967, he was closely involved in work on the Air Canada and Ontario pavilions at Expo in Montreal, and found himself on projects in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Sioux City, Iowa, as well as the Carmichael Falls Power Dam in Northern Ontario.
For all that, Art JOHNS was firmly rooted in the Toronto landscape during a time when the city was wildly expanding, architecturally. Among other projects, he engineered the Etobicoke Olympium complex and its Olympic-size pool, and handled the restoration of the Gardiner Expressway.
In his years at the firm he was, at various times, president, Chief Executive Officer and chairman. He played a significant part in the growth of the firm after 1986 and saw it triple in size, quadruple its revenues, and expand into the U.S. market. Today, it has nearly 600 employees in 11 offices across North America.
Art JOHNS received two important awards during his career -- a gold medal from Ontario engineers in 2002, and another from the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers in 2004. Most recently, he worked as an investigator and witness, providing expert testimony on construction and design. He appeared in pre-trials, discoveries, mediations and court on several occasions in Canada and the United States. He was also a strong supporter of a process called alternative dispute resolution, which is used to mediate construction disputes involving owners, designers, and contractors.
As a thinking man's engineer, he published a number of papers for the firm, including a study on the aftermath of the collapse of the World Trade Center in New York on September 11, 2001. "The safety and survival of people housed or working in our buildings will take priority over our chattels," he wrote. "Some will question the safety of all tall buildings and others will seriously reconsider whether or not the very top floors are indeed prestigious and premium space."
Like the engineer he was, Mr. JOHNS carefully regarded the whole picture and not just the towers. "The destruction extended beyond buildings to the utilities and infrastructure in Manhattan. Power, sewers, water mains, telecommunications, transit and road networks were disrupted. Fire safety for both the survival of structures and evacuation of people has now become different challenges for engineers."
According to the nominators for his 2004 award, Mr. JOHNS also influenced such practices as changes to building codes and promoted Canadian engineering skills in the global market.
Privately, he also sat on the board of directors and was chair of the procurement committee of Habitat for Humanity and was involved in building a house for the charity in Alliston, Ontario
Mr. JOHNS retired from Morrison Hershfield in 2005, after 44 years in the firm. Three days later, he was diagnosed with cancer. "Never write your last day of work in your day timer," he told his daughter, Linda PRINGLE.
Arthur Bartly JOHNS was born in Scarborough, Ontario in 1936. He died at Royal Victoria Hospital in Barrie, Ontario on October 24, 2006, after a nine-month battle with multiple myeloma. He was He is survived by his wife, Ruth, sons Brad and Scott, and daughter, Linda. He also leaves his sister, Rene, and grandchildren Andrew, Michaela, Schuyler, Liam, and Zachary.
