WEEKS, Ernest Poole
By Arnold SIMESTER, Page A16
Proud Maritimer, Rhodes scholar, civil servant, world traveller. Born January, 1912. Died January 23, in Ottawa of pneumonia, aged 94.
Ernest WEEKS was the son of Rev. E.S. WEEKS, a Methodist minister. Ernest had two sisters, Pearl and Jean. As a boy growing up in Murray Harbour, Nova Scotia, he could remember things such as hearing the Halifax Explosion rattle all the windows in his house and experiencing the Spanish Flu of 1918.
After attending Mount Allison University he won a Rhodes scholarship in 1933 to study economics. He travelled Europe where he saw Mussolini giving a speech, and saw Hitler, dressed in his brown shirt, driving through rapturous crowds in Hamburg. He also visited collective farms in the Ukraine as he rode through Russia. The memoir Ernie published in 2004 (Memoirs, 90 years, 1912-2002: Canada and Elsewhere) is an amazing first-hand account of his witnessing "a sort of twilight of the fabulous Empire, and a time of revolutionary changes in Europe." He also met personalities such as Churchill and George Bernard Shaw through different Oxford connections.
In Hamburg, he met a German woman named Gerda WUENSCH (through study and travel he became fluent in five languages) and when the Second World War occurred he found himself in Britain with a young family living through the Blitz. He worked for the Ministry of Information preparing propaganda, including foreign radio broadcasts at the British Broadcasting Corporation. One night during a very severe raid, with his wife and son by his side, he heard the whistle of V-1 "buzz bombs" coming from directly overhead. From experience he knew the Germans flew the V-1s in lines of threes so they heard the explosion of the first bomb, then the second bomb hit closer. The third bomb just missed his flat and levelled a house 100 yards away.
He returned to Canada in the 1950s and worked as an economist for the federal government; he worked for a wide variety of departments. He shared an office with a young Pierre Trudeau at one point and he counted C.D. Howe and Jack Pickersgill as his mentors. He served as executive director of the Atlantic Development Board, assistant deputy minister of the Department of Regional Economic Expansion, and the chairman of Canadian Saltfish Corp.
Although he moved and worked in privileged circles he never took himself seriously. He established the Semi-Senile Snow Shoeing Society (or the SSSS as the members called it) in Ottawa. This group of Friends met for more than 50 years on Saturdays to explore the woods in western Quebec or in the Ottawa valley. After so many miles a bonfire would be built and stories would be told as they ate lunch and sipped their snowshoeing drink (half whisky and half maple syrup). The group came from all walks of life, largely through Ernie's wide involvement with organizations such as the Young Men's Christian Association, his church, the press club, the Rideau club, and the Canadian Geographical Society.
Charlie Hurst, his best friend, described Ernie as a man who "knew the name of every tree and flower, who could talk about international politics for hours, always with all the details, who could tell a good story -- and who would listen, too. He was a fantastic man with a fantastic mind." They only stopped snowshoeing in 2002, when every other member of the original group had died.
A testament to his spirit is that, as Ernie's body grew frailer in the last few years and as he was reduced to a cane and then finally to a wheelchair, the most he would concede to his health when an inquiry was made might be a casual "Last week was tough, but, you know, I'm making progress." After which -- inevitably he'd meet your concerned look with a smile and say, "But tell me how you're doing."
Arnold SIMESTER is Ernie's step-grand_son.

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.

Bert will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by cousins, nephews, nieces, grand-nieces, grand-nephews, and many Friends around the globe. A true son of Toronto, born at home on on Logan Avenue, Bert attended Frankland Public School. During his time there, he joined the 21st Cub Pack, a foundational influence in his life, making many life-long Friends, and hosting many of their annual reunions which continued until a few years ago! Bert played football while a student at Riverdale Collegiate (Danforth Tech), graduated in engineering from Central Tech. During these high school years, he became an eager member of Denton Massey's young men's York Bible Class, whose weekly attendance averaged 2800, and who in 1931, had to turn away people from a filled Maple Leaf Gardens! After graduation, classically trained in piano and a self-taught on clarinet, Bert started The Bert Simmons Orchestra, which played for dancing at many popular spots in Toronto, such as the Savarin and Casa Loma as well as on the luxury liners, the Ile de France and the Normandy. At the outbreak of World War 2, Bert founded a private school to train tool engineers, designers and mechanical draftsmen, and during the war served as an engineer and designer in the Royal Canadian Navy, attaining the rank of Lieutenant Commander. Following the war, Bert joined the National Film Board of Canada as an architectural draftsman. After leaving the Film Board, he worked for Gaveart Photographic in Toronto, and in 1956 founded the Braun Electric Corporation of Canada in garage of the family's Applewood Acres home. An enthusiastic entrepreneur, he subsequently founded ARRI Canada, Signaflash, and latterly Minder Research Corporation. Visitation will be held Monday, November 20, 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at Turner and Porter "Peel Chapel" 2180 Hurontario St, Mississauga.
