Bill HEASLIP, Retailer: (1927-2006)
He went from running a Toronto hardware store to owning one of Canada's largest men's clothing outlets, then lost it in one of the first big retail bankruptcies of the 1990s
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Toronto -- When Bill HEASLIP was 33, he was a co-owner of a big hardware store in downtown Toronto and reasonably happy, but he still yearned for a bigger piece of Canada's retail rainbow.
Mr. HEASLIP and Richard CHATER, a fellow partner at the store, sought to buy into something bigger. High on their priority list was a public company that was listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange. The savvy pair zeroed in on Grafton Group Ltd., a family-owned chain of 11 men's and women's clothing stores whose roots went back to 1853, making it the second-oldest retail chain in Canada behind Hudson's Bay Co.
In 1961, the two Friends made the plunge. Little did they know they would become multi-millionaires.
Bill HEASLIP grew up in the west end of Toronto and attended Runnymede public school and Humberside Collegiate Institute. His family could not afford to send him to university, so he went to work for his father, who sold advertising for the agriculture-oriented trade paper Canadian Countryman.
He did not stay long. By 1946, he had found a job at White's, a wholesale-retail hardware operation owned by the Chater family. Later, Mr. HEASLIP and Mr. CHATER assumed control and eventually decided to get into retail clothing. Their timing was perfect.
Grafton's middle-of-the-line, moderately priced clothing stores were in vogue across the country. Over time, the Jack Fraser, George Richards and Elks men's banners were added, along with Maher Shoes, Donita women's wear shops and the U.S.-based Seiferts chain of 200 stores.
But perhaps the most appealing of any acquisition Mr. HEASLIP and Mr. CHATER concocted came in 1967 when they obtained the licence to manage clothing for F.W. Woolworth's Woolco stores across Canada. It was a gold-mine contract that they would hold for close to 25 years. The pair sat back and watched the money roll in.
"That deal with Woolworth was quickly lucrative. It was something we tried to keep well hidden," said George REYNOLDS, who was Grafton's chief financial officer for 30 years.
Eventually, the Grafton empire grew from 11 stores to a staggering 1,100. Mr. CHATER was the company's brain trust and Chief Executive Officer, and Mr. HEASLIP served as senior vice-president. In 1982, Mr. CHATER died and Mr. HEASLIP became controlling shareholder Mr. REYNOLDS remained as Chief Financial Officer.
"Not only was Bill an intellectual with great business sense, but his greatest virtue was patience and he was a very successful Chief Executive Officer for that reason," said John McDONALD, a former board member whose family controls the Black and McDonald electrical and mechanical engineering empire.
By the late 1980s, Grafton was still holding its own in the clothing business but soon became a victim of a failing retail market that later claimed Simpsons and then the Eaton chain. First to go was the Woolco chain. In 1991, Woolworth decided not to renew its contract with Grafton, dealing a big blow to the company.
"The non-renewal was preparation for Wal-Mart buying the [144] Woolco stores," Mr. REYNOLDS said. "Too many of the stores weren't profitable."
In December of 1991, Grafton stunned Bay Street by filing for bankruptcy protection. The banks stepped in and, within a few months, the chain was taken over by a group headed by Glenn STONEHOUSE, a Grafton executive vice-president who assumed full control in 1994. Today, the company is called Grafton-Fraser and boasts about 180 stores, including 115 Tip Top Tailors outlets and 25 outlets of the George Richards tall-men brand.
After the bankruptcy, Mr. HEASLIP turned to philanthropy. Over the years, he helped support theatre groups, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Canadian Opera Company, Art Gallery of Ontario, Care Canada, the Canadian Liver Foundation and a number of hospitals. Because he never went to university, he established scholarships at 10 different universities. In 1999, he was granted the Order of Canada and given an honorary doctorate by St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, N.S.
Early retirement also gave him more time to enjoy a late-in-life marriage. A bachelor until 56, he wed Nona MacDONALD, director of public relations for the University of Toronto. She soon discovered he loved to cook. "I didn't cook much and I knew he loved to cook, so, one day, we were talking about going on vacation and I told him to take me some place where I had never been before and he jokingly said, 'That's easy, let's go to the kitchen.'"
Bill HEASLIP was born on July 5, 1927, in Toronto. He died on March 3, 2006, in Sarasota, Florida, of a stroke. He is survived by his wife, Nona, and sister Betty. He was predeceased by his parents and sisters Alice and Doris.

GRAVES, Winnifred Lottie (née BLEWETT)
Formerly of Saint Thomas, after a prolonged illness that robbed her of communication, passed away at dawn on November 10, 2006, at the Sunnyside Home in Kitchener, Ontario, in her 85th year. She was the eldest daughter in the Elgin County farming family of the late William and Eva BLEWETT, and the beloved wife of city trainman and musician, the late W. Jack GRAVES of Saint Thomas. She was a nursing graduate of the Saint Thomas Memorial Hospital Class of 1944. Winnie enjoyed the love and admiration of her brothers and sisters and their families, as they celebrated their milestones with brunches in the London-Saint Thomas area.

Her children, Mary Ann (Keith) LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY, Toronto; Judy Marie GRAVES (Terry STOREY), Edmonton and William Scott (Theresa Fitzgerald) GRAVES, Waterloo, are especially proud of her accomplishments - as a Victorian Order of Nurses professional; as a leader in the Order of the Eastern Star, Daughters of the Nile, and Lady Trainmen; and as a model of unwavering commitment to community service and education. But their sweetest memories of Mom are her quiet ways of making simple moments joyful- stove-top birthday cakes, silly racing games, music and dancing, camping trips and her unmistakable delight in her grandchildren, Sean LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY, Toronto; Karah LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY, Newmarket; and Carmen and Cleo GRAVES, Waterloo. Don PARDEY will officiate at the funeral service on Saturday, November 18 at 1 p.m. at Williams Funeral Home, 45 Elgin Street, Saint Thomas.

Red STOREY, Athlete And Referee: (1918-2006)
Legendary National Hockey League figure officiated seven straight Stanley Cup finals between 1952 and 1958 but abruptly resigned after National Hockey League president Clarence Campbell said he had 'choked' at a riotous playoff game in Chicago
By Tim WHARNSBY with files from Canadian Press; Globe and Mail archives, Page S7
Roy Alvin (Red) STOREY was once considered Canada's top football player. He also displayed his athletic skills on the baseball diamond, lacrosse field and at the hockey rink. Later, he became a top-notch National Hockey League referee and Canadian Football League official. He was a tremendous raconteur as well as one of the most colourful personalities the Canadian sporting scene has ever had but will likely be remembered most as a man of principle.
On Saturday, April 4, 1959, he refereed his last National Hockey League game because he refused to be belittled by league president Clarence Campbell for officiating a playoff game in Chicago between the Blackhawks and the Montreal Canadiens the way he always did: by letting the players decide the outcome.
The Blackhawks and Canadiens were playing Game 6 of the Stanley Cup semifinals that day and Montreal led the series three games to two. The Hawks and Habs were deadlocked 3-3 late in the third period when Chicago forward Eddie Litzenberger stepped on the stick of a Montreal player and was sent sprawling. The dedicated Blackhawks fans at the noisy Chicago Stadium wanted nearby Canadiens forward Marcel Bonin called for tripping, but there was no call from Mr. STOREY.
In the meantime, Montreal's Dickie Moore picked up the loose puck and scored. Blackhawks rugged forward Ted Lindsay was able to draw his club even with a goal later in the period, but then controversy surrounded Mr. STOREY once again.
With less than two minutes remaining in regulation time, Canadiens defenceman Junior Langlois put a deft hipcheck on Chicago's Bobby Hull and knocked him flying. The Blackhawks faithful screamed at Mr. STOREY for letting the players play. A short time after the non-call, Montreal's Claude Provost scored the game-winning and series-clinching goal.
"One thing you've got to realize: The easiest thing for me to do would have been to give the Canadiens two penalties," Mr. STOREY said afterward. "Hell, I was in Chicago. The crowd would have loved me."
He stood by his principles. But that didn't ease the anger of the fans. A horde of Blackhawks fans jumped on the ice surface and made their way toward Mr. STOREY, prompting Chicago forward Danny Lewicki to hand him his stick. "Red, you're going to need this more than I do now."
Red STOREY thought he had seen it all before. Over the years, bottles, full cans of beer, chairs, eggs, tomatoes, shoes -- and once, in Chicago -- a live octopus had been hurled at him, but this was different. He escaped, but as he made his way down the stairs to the officials' dressing room, he found Ted Lindsay waiting for him.
"I'm gonna cut your damned head off," Mr. Lindsay growled.
"You make your first shot the best one you've ever had," Mr. STOREY shot back, "because this is the first time we've both had a stick and I'm gonna cut you in two."
Blackhawks owner Jim Norris interceded just in time and pushed Mr. Lindsay toward the Chicago dressing room.
"Get in there, you little S.O.B. and leave Red alone," Mr. Norris barked. "Red, you don't have to take that in my building or anybody's building. You go to your room and have a shower. Forget about this."
Mr. STOREY would not be able to forget about it. Two days later, he was summoned to the hotel room of Clarence Campbell.
"Have you read anything in the papers?" Mr. Campbell queried Mr. STOREY.
He had not, and asked why.
"Well, there were some things said, and they weren't meant the way they came out. I just wanted you to know that before you read it," Mr. Campbell answered.
Mr. STOREY went out buy that day's newspapers and found headlines that read, " STOREY Chokes," " STOREY Chicken," and "STOREY Gutless."
The harsh remarks had all been made by Mr. Campbell. Red STOREY was devastated.
Just prior to the beginning of the Stanley Cup final between the Canadiens and Boston Bruins that spring, he met some hockey reporters in his Boston hotel room and announced his days as an National Hockey League referee were finished. The man who had officiated seven straight Stanley Cup finals between 1952 and 1958 never returned to the league. "My heart felt sick when I read in the paper what Campbell said about me," he told Globe and Mail sports columnist Scott YOUNG a few days later. "I'm the big loser -- my heart is in sport and has been for 25 years but the time came when I had to make a decision."
Mr. STOREY felt undermined by what he perceived as a lack of support in the National Hockey League for referees. "The officials never have been backed up in this league," he said. "I hope that my taking a stand will help the others."
Apparently, little changed in the upper levels of the league and his grievances worsened. In 1964, he told Dick BEDDOES of The Globe and Mail that "there is rigged refereeing in the National Hockey League."
Not only that, but he laid his charges directly at the feet of Mr. Campbell. "National Hockey League officials are instructed by National Hockey League president Clarence Campbell to give the home team the edge in penalties."
Mr. STOREY further declared that Mr. Campbell had told him: "Our policy is to keep the league balanced. A weak team might lose 5-0, but that's better than losing 11-0, which it might if it got a lot of penalties. We don't want weak teams to be hurt by too many penalties."
Mr. STOREY's assertions were backed up by Dalton McArthur, another former National Hockey League referee. Among other things, Mr. Campbell replied that the disclosures were a "contemptible distortion."
In the end, Red STOREY dropped his battle but always felt disappointed by his treatment and by what he saw as corruption. Perhaps to his mind, it ran too deep.
In 1967, he was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. Later, when asked about the infamous incident with Mr. Campbell, he was quick to say he never regretted his decision to walk away from the National Hockey League, which had eventually begged him to return. He was later made a member of the Order of Canada and Canada's Sports Hall of Fame.
Long before his officiating days, Mr. STOREY was a talented football player. When he was 18, he turned pro with the Toronto Argonauts and won the Grey Cup in 1937 and 1938. His most memorable performance was in the 1938 championship game, when he came off the bench to score three touchdowns and scamper for 102 yards in the Argos come-from-behind, 30-7 victory over Winnipeg.
He was scouted by the Chicago Bears and New York Giants football clubs, but unfortunately a serious knee injury ended his playing days in 1941. A year later, he began his career as a football official, one that lasted until 1957. In 1950, he became an National Hockey League referee. When that career ended, Mr. STOREY stayed in hockey as a colourful analyst in radio and television.
He also did plenty of charity work and was a popular after-dinner speaker, all into his 80s. "He was probably one of the best after-dinner speakers," said Robin Burns, an National Hockey League forward in the 1970s who is part-owner of Mission Itech hockey equipment. "He got paid for some, but he probably did two or three times that amount for free."
For one thing, he had chronicled a superb stock of hockey stories. Among the favourites of dinner guests was one about Butch Bouchard. "One night in Montreal," he liked to begin, "a fan threw a big bag of peas at me because I gave their great hero, Rocket Richard, a penalty. As I waited for the sweepers, Big Butch Bouchard skated over. 'Bouchard,' I yelled, 'one word out of you and you're gone.' 'I'm not mad at you, STOREY,' said Bouchard. 'You get that fan to throw out the bacon also, I make you the best damned pea soup you ever taste.' And up in the stands, they're yelling: 'Ata boy, Butch, you tell him.' "
Mr. Burns, who grew up on the same street where Mr. STOREY lived for decades in the Notre Dame de Grace district of Montreal and later worked with him at charity old-timers games and other events, said, "I think he was named to the Order of Canada more for his charitable contributions than for his accomplishments in sports."
Later, he returned to the ice only to referee old-timer games and special charity events -- the big league no longer interested him. He did, though, offer some sage advice to anyone interested in becoming a referee: "Learn the rule book from one end to the other and then visit a psychiatrist."
Roy Alvin (Red) STOREY was born on March 5, 1918, in Barrie, Ontario He died in Montreal yesterday. He was 88 and had been in poor health in a Montreal nursing home. He is survived by his wife, Bunny, and by sons Bob and Doug.

STOREY, Red -- I Remember
By Bernie KREWSKI, Page S9
Bernie KREWSKI of Edmonton writes about Red STOREY, whose obituary appeared on Thursday.
I met Red STOREY at an airport when he was promoting his book and our scheduled flight was delayed. I found out quickly how entertaining he could be as a storyteller. After describing episodes of hitchhiking home to Barrie when he was with the Argonauts and his days as an National Hockey League referee, he asked what I did for a living. I told him I was doing some research on disasters. Well, it took Red only one second to produce another tale.
Before his mother died in 1983, his sister had arranged a family visit to her childhood home in Minnesota. While they were visiting the local museum, they stopped to listen to a presentation on the history of the district. The speaker described a devastating forest fire in 1910 but said there was no one alive who had lived through it. Red's sister, he said, stood up and introduced their mother because she remembered it very well. Museum officials were so excited that they brought in a television crew to interview her. Red might never have discovered after he told me this story that Stephen J. Pyne made reference to that fire in Year of the Fires, published in 2001.

Red STOREY, 88: Hall-of-fame referee
Canadian Press
Montreal -- Grey Cup winner and hall of fame hockey referee Red STOREY died yesterday, March 15. He was 88.
STOREY, who had been in poor health recently, had been in a Montreal nursing home since December.
He was considered one of the best referees of his day, but is perhaps best remembered for his colourful personality.
He officiated seven straight Stanley Cup finals between 1952 and 1958, but abruptly resigned in 1959 after National Hockey League president Clarence Campbell said STOREY "choked" while calling a game at Chicago Stadium.
Stung by the criticism, STOREY quit after hearing Campbell's comments and never worked for the league again, despite fielding calls from people around the National Hockey League asking him to return.
STOREY was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1967.
"Red STOREY brought passion, dedication and enthusiasm to each and every game as an National Hockey League referee," National Hockey League commissioner Gary Bettman said in a statement. "Long after his retirement as an on-ice official, he continued to serve as one of the truly great ambassadors for the game in his travels around North America officiating charitable games.
"On behalf of the National Hockey League family, we extend our deepest sympathies to his wife Bunny and sons Bob and Doug."
Born March 5, 1918, in Barrie, Roy Alvin STOREY grew up playing several sports, including hockey, lacrosse, baseball and football. Football was his first love and he turned professional at the age of 18, signing with the Canadian Football League's Toronto Argonauts.
He won Grey Cups with the Argos in 1937 and 1938.
Those who know him say that STOREY used to hitchhike between his home in Barrie and Toronto while playing for the Argonauts.
It hardly affected his performance. In one 1938 game, STOREY came off the bench in the fourth quarter and rushed for three touchdowns and 102 yards in a comeback win over Winnipeg.
STOREY was scouted by the Chicago Bears and New York Giants, but his football career ended when he suffered a serious knee injury in 1941.
He then turned his attention towards hockey and was hired by the National Hockey League in 1950. STOREY became known around the league for calling a fair game and being able to make everyone smile.
"They try to take the personalities out of the game now," former National Hockey League referee Ron Hoggarth told radio station AM 640. "When he worked, he was a character."
After resigning from the National Hockey League, STOREY remained active in the game. He did radio and television commentary and participated in old-timers' games across North America.
STOREY was made a member of the Order of Canada in 1991 and inducted into Canada's Sports Hall of Fame in 1986.
Over 25 years, he was a referee at the highest levels of hockey, football and lacrosse and has been honoured for his work in all three sports.
Robin Burns, a National Hockey League forward in the 1970s who is part-owner of Mission Itech hockey equipment, called STOREY "an incredible, incredible man. You could put him in the top five Canadian athletes of all time."
Funeral details were not immediately available.
