ROGERS, Edward Samuel, 1939 -- Died This Day
Inventor and broadcaster born in Toronto on June 21, 1900
Fascinated by the wonder of radio as a boy, he first went on the air at the age of 11 with one of the first licensed amateur Morse-code transmitters in Canada. By 14, he had built a radio strong enough to pick up a German radio signal announcing the declaration of the First World War. By 1920, his signals could be heard on both coasts and a year later he became the first Canadian amateur radio operator to send a signal across the Atlantic. At that time, radios all relied on battery power. In 1925, he developed and manufactured a radio receiver that could run on household electrical current. Two years later, to promote sales, he founded Toronto's CFRB, or "Canada's First Rogers Batteryless" radio station. In 1929, he helped to set up a news-only radio station at The Globe and Mail and in 1931 he was granted the first television licence in Canada. He had begun to explore the mysteries of radar when he suffered a hemorrhage and died in hospital. His son, who is also called Edward Samuel Rogers, heads Rogers Communications Inc.

KENNEDY, Kathleen Helen (née KRAFFT)
Age 87, passed away peacefully at her home April 8, 2006, with her three loving daughters by her side. Gracious and kind, lover of music, Kay has joined her beloved husband, Doug, in Heaven. Kay felt truly blessed by her large, close-knit family, which included four children: Sue ROGERS (Robert), Ottawa, John KENNEDY (Virginia BARNES,) Australia, Pat BOND (Robert,) Mississauga, and Janet GRAHAM (Brian) Grimsby. Her 10 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren were the joy and pride of her life. Born and raised in Cayuga, Ontario, Kay (Kathy), at the tender age of 16, was the organist at her beloved Church of Saint_John the Divine, and later went on to the University of Guelph where she and Doug met and then married soon after graduation. Typical of many young couples in the forties, Kay and Doug lived through the hardships of war and poverty as they began their young family. (Their first Thanksgiving dinner was a pigeon that Doug shot on the family farm!) With wisdom and devotion, Kay rose to the challenge of being a politician's wife in the years from 1967 to 1985, when Doug served as Conservative M.P.P. for Mississauga South. World travel was a significant part of their 63 rich and fulfilling years together, and included trips to countries such as Australia, Africa, and China. Many dear Friends and extended family reaped the benefits of her warm and generous hospitality demonstrated by her wonderful home-cooked meals, lots of laughter, and enjoyment of card games and scrabble. To the surprise of her family, in her last few years she took up playing pool. Kathleen lived her faith with dignity and by patient example, as she herself had been nurtured. A legacy for us all. The family would like to especially thank the staff at the Regency Retirement Home for their loving kindness. Kathleen had a real place in her heart for Moorelands Camp, www.moorelands.org 416-466-9987, The L'Arche Community, office@Iarchecanada.org 514-844-1661, and Primates World Relief and Development Fund, www.pwrdf.org/give/ 416-924-9192.
