PITHER, William Garth (March 6, 1921-September 8, 2006)
A pioneer in the Cable television industry, Garth passed away peacefully on September 8, 2006 in Vancouver. Predeceased by his adoring wife Dorothy, he is survived by sons Ron, Barry, and Gordon; grand_sons Colin and Lane; daughter-in-law Deborah BROADLEY; sister Beth (Charles;) nephew Gerry EDWARDS, and nieces Linda MASON, Sharon FARNETTI, and Heather PICCO. Garth's 'family' was bigger than most, as his reach, influence, and genuine interest always extended in the most caring of ways beyond the conventional his sense of community and contribution were hallmarks of his life. Garth's watchwords were 'Perseverance', 'Why not?', and 'Never dismiss anyone or anything'. Born in Winnipeg and growing up in Saskatchewan and Vancouver, Garth began an electrical apprenticeship at RCA in Toronto during 1938. In 1940 he enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force and was seconded to the Royal Air Force where his technical brilliance was applied to the then secret U.K.-based radar initiative. Returning to Canada in 1945 he rejoined RCA and married Dorothy LOVELL in 1946. A chance television repair job for Syd WELSH lead to a three way partnership with Bud SHEPARD in the early fifties pioneering Cable television in Canada. His technical knowledge and skills were employed in wiring the mountain communities of British Columbia, including antenna sites surveyed on foot, by packhorse, boat, jeep, helicopter, and snowmobile. By the 1960s, this visionary trio, and others too many to mention, brought Cable television to the major urban centres of Canada and around the world including the U.S.A., Ireland, and the United Kingdom, garnering the respect of governments and business partners such as CBS. In 1971 the Welsh companies formed Premier Cablevision Limited which was eventually purchased by Rogers Cable of Toronto. Garth's 'retirement' in 1981 was hardly ever that(!) as he offered his skills, enthusiasm, and insight to support Rick Hansen's dream to wheel around the world and such organizations as the British Columbia and Canadian Paraplegic Associations, Vancouver Rotary and finally the Shaughnessy Stroke Recovery Club. Golf both in Vancouver and Palm Springs was always in the 'fore'. Always busy, always involved, always offering, always there… Garth was always 'doing something' and led by example to create and fix things rather than just offer words. A private Celebration of Garth's life will be held amongst his dear family and Friends. The family thanks the volunteers and members of the Shaughnessy Stroke Recovery Club and other stroke support services in Vancouver for enabling Garth to maintain his independence since his wn stroke in 1996. Moreover, we give honourable mention to the staff at Vancouver General Hospital, University of British Columbia Health Sciences and Providence Health Care, in particular staff at the Brock Fahrni facility for the wonderful care and attention Garth received over the past year. In lieu of flowers, donations should be made to one of Garth's proudest and greatest achievements, the British Columbia Paraplegic Foundation (780…S.W. Marine Drive, Vancouver, British Columbia V6P 5Y7) of which he was a founding visionary over 30 years ago.

BABINETZ, Jim
By Norma SHEPHERD, Page A18
Husband, father, athlete, gardener, teacher, crusader, dog-lover. Born February 18, 1940, in Brantford, Ontario Died November 12, 2005, of natural causes, aged 65.
There's a story of a hardworking homeowner whose beautiful garden prompts the parish priest to comment "My God, the Lord and yourself are partners," to which the gardener responds, "That may be, Father, but you should have seen this garden when the Lord had it on his own."
I never got to see Jim BABINETZ's multiple-awards-winning garden when "the Lord had it on his own" nor did I meet Jim's children before Jim and Jan, his wife of 41 years, had raised them to be responsible, family-centred young men, capable of speaking honestly and eloquently at their father's funeral. However, I was privileged to enjoy Jim's gifts of home-grown horseradish and feel somewhat guilty that an empty jar sits in my cupboard despite Jim's request to return it.
Jim placed high expectations upon those around him, but they were no loftier than the expectations he placed on himself. "I don't do it to win," was his mantra when presented with a Civic Rose or some such award. Jim worked in tune with the principles of seedtime and harvest, well-acquainted with the natural rewards of diligent sowing and reaping, nourishing, weeding, and pruning.
As a student Jim nurtured his love of outdoors through nine seasons of recreation work as a park supervisor and his efforts on the football field earned him a try-out with the Montreal Alouettes in 1960. "He blends size, weight, and speed in a good combination," said the Oakville Black Knights coach who recommended the lineman to Canadian Football League scouts.
In 1959, at 278 pounds, Jim was expelled from teachers college for "gross obesity." He and 11 other students were considered to be unsuitable role models. Jim challenged the Board of Education's ruling, ultimately appealing to the office of the premier, who ultimately instructed the health ministry to re-examine the case. Toronto-area newspapers followed Jim's struggle, photographing him almost daily under headlines that referred to the 19-year-old with descriptions of his girth, such as "Too Big Jim." This, despite Jim's large-boned physique and star four-sport athletic career in high school.
Jim's struggle for permission to return to college provoked petitions, inspired editorials and cartoons, and sparked a demand for the education minister's resignation. Seven other provinces, the ministry of transport, the army, navy, and air force -- even The Times of London gave its support to this determined young man. Jim's battle with his weight and the bureaucrats was profiled in Time magazine.
Within a few weeks of his dismissal, Jim carried only 265 pounds on his six-foot frame and had arranged for further weight loss to be supervised by the Banting Institute. After passing a second medical exam, Jim returned to the college that had dismissed him and engaged tutors to help him recover lost ground. He graduated two years later to begin his teaching career at a school in Oakville, Ontario
Jim's public war with the establishment resulted in a system change; potential students would now be medically evaluated prior to the start of classes instead of midway through the first term. But as one paper put it: "He had to lose to win."
Jim remained a serious person throughout his life but over the years he welcomed five Springer Spaniels into his life and his home.
Jim may have embraced teaching and sports for their structure and discipline but I suspect Jim wanted a hand in helping precious young lives reach their potential. After all, isn't that what a good gardener does?
Norma is a friend of Jim BABINETZ.

A friend to the average family
By Mike FUNSTON, Staff Reporter
Jackie SHEPHERD never backed down from a fight, whether it was against slum landlords, political heavyweights or big supermarkets gouging consumers.
SHEPHERD, who made headlines in the Toronto Star in the 1960s as a consumer advocate and federal New Democratic Party candidate in Toronto, succumbed to cancer at home, with her family by her side, on Friday. She was 73.
"In Jackie's younger days, she was feisty and never backed down from anybody. She passed those traits on to all of her children. She's one of the strongest women I've ever known," said her son-in-law, Bob MITCHELL, a reporter at the Star.
"She was my best friend," said her daughter, Kim MITCHELL. " She was the glue that held our family together. Her daughters and sons looked up to her. That's where we got our strength. She was a courageous woman."
Jacqueline Lorraine SHEPHERD (formerly LEDREW) was born August 16, 1932, in Saint John's Newfoundland. She was an Oakville resident for the past five years but had also lived in Toronto, Newmarket, Mississauga and Calgary.
A member of the Women Against Soaring Prices, she resigned in the fall of 1966 because the organization didn't want to take the action she thought was necessary to protest against rising food prices.
When she went on television and talked about how landlords wouldn't rent to people with children, her phone started ringing off the hook. Soon afterwards, in 1967, she formed the Consumers' Housewives Union and convinced members to picket food warehouses.
SHEPHERD spearheaded a fight for better housing for low-income residents and helped convince the government of the day to pass legislation that banned landlords from refusing to rent to people with children.
She organized a march of 34 mothers on Queen's Park in February 1967, with a petition to amend the Ontario Human Rights Code to prevent landlords from barring children.
"You'd think children weren't even human," SHEPHERD told the Star in 1967, after she had scanned the classified ads and found 167 apartments that wouldn't allow children.
While running the Consumers' Housewives Union out of her home in an Ontario Housing unit, SHEPHERD found time to raise her family and work part-time as a waitress and cashier.
In 1967, she petitioned city hall and won a two-week stay of eviction for 25 families from their Sylvan Court housing complex in Scarborough. In 1968, she ran unsuccessfully for the New Democratic Party in the federal riding of York West.
She also worked 27 years for the Ontario Jockey Club, primarily at Woodbine and Greenwood racetracks.
SHEPHERD leaves her husband Jack, a Korean War veteran, five children -- John, Kim, Jill, Joey and Megan -- 16 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Another son, Richard, was murdered on January 22, 1981. She also had 17 brothers and sisters.
Visitation will be at Oakview Funeral Home, 56 Lakeshore Rd. W. in Oakville, today from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m., and tomorrow from 9 to 11 a.m., with eulogies to follow in the chapel. Interment at Sanctuary Park Cemetery.
