Kenneth MAXTED, Officer And Clergyman (1931-2006)
He was a soldier-turned-priest who brought a military bearing to the clergy, writes Sandra MARTIN. He loved ceremony and uniforms and, with a bristling moustache, always looked the part -- irrespective of vocation
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S11
There were uniforms, medals, honorary guards and the robust singing of hymns as the many parts of Rev. Ken MAXTED's life came together Thursday afternoon at Saint_James Cathedral. The church was packed for the service that Canon MAXTED had himself planned, even to the designation of who should give the homily. Don't talk about me, Canon MAXTED said in his written funeral instructions to Rev. Mark SARGENT, a Catholic priest: Preach the gospels.
A self-defined soldier-priest who served in Korea and then became an ordained Anglican priest, Canon MAXTED was a community activist, a traditionalist and a great burly fellow who loved a joke and knew how to tell a story. "There was never an atheist in a foxhole," said Charles SCOT- BROWN, a retired soldier and family friend, attributing Mr. MAXTED's dual vocation to his upbringing in a family that went to church and "believed in God and the King, and when the King blew the whistle you joined."
He loved ceremony and uniforms and he looked the part, standing 6 feet 5 inches, with flaming red hair, a bristling mustache and a booming voice. In the mid-1970s, in addition to his duties as a clergyman, a reservist and an elected school official, Canon MAXTED began working as a volunteer aide de camp for Ontario's Lieutenant-Governors. In the next 20 years, he served Pauline McGibbon, John Aird Black, Lincoln Alexander and Henry N.R. JACKMAN.
"Nobody stood as tall as he did in his scarlet uniform, with all the gold braid and piles of medals," said Mr. JACKMAN, remembering a time, in the early 1990s, when Bob Rae was premier of Ontario. Mr. Rae was explaining the parliamentary system to a group of schoolchildren and Canon MAXTED was standing to attention behind him, recalled Mr. JACKMAN. Afterward, one of the children was asked what he thought of the premier. "He looked magnificent, but he didn't say anything," the student said, complaining that "the little guy beside him did all the talking."
Major The Reverend Canon Kenneth MAXTED was born in Toronto, the elder of two children of Edward Kenneth (Ted) MAXTED (a professional soldier who had joined the Canadian army in 1921 at 12 as a bugle boy and retired 40 years later as a major) and his wife Mary Eileen Patricia HOWARD. Both sides of the family had served in the military going back at least three generations.
Canon MAXTED grew up in Toronto with his younger sister Patricia and attended Parkdale Collegiate. Too young to serve in the Second World War, he enlisted as a private in the Irish Regiment in 1948 when he was 17. "He was always an intense, energetic, mischievous kid," said Mr. SCOT- BROWN, who served with Canon MAXTED's father. "He could pull the craziest practical jokes, but his pranks never hurt anybody."
Canon MAXTED qualified as a reserve officer in 1951 and as an infantry officer in the regular forces the following year. A member of the now defunct Canadian Guards, he served in Germany with North Atlantic Treaty Organization Forces and in Korea with the United Nations forces in 1953 for a year-long tour of duty.
Before he returned to Canada, he gave a speech to the South Korean soldiers, deploring "the thousands of homeless and the hungry children begging for food" and the "rubble and shell-torn cities" and paying tribute to the people "of the Land of the Morning Calm" and their "never-failing determination to survive as a free and independent nation." In return, they gave him a South Korean flag. Forty years later, Mr. MAXTED gave the flag to his son Kevin to take back to South Korea when he taught English there for a year in 1996. The flag is now part of a display about the Korean War at the Royal Canadian Military Institute in Toronto.
Back in Canada, Canon MAXTED was stationed at Camp Ipperwash, about an hour's drive from London, Ontario One evening in September of 1954, he went to a dance at the London Arena. There he spotted a young Dutch immigrant named Hendrina VAN DER MOER. He asked her to dance and she accepted. Six months later, on St. Patrick's Day, he proposed. They were married on December 15, 1955, in a military wedding at Saint Paul's Cathedral in London. Three children followed: Pamela, Sean and Kevin.
Canon MAXTED, who had always been a devout Christian, decided to study for the ministry and enrolled in the Faculty of Theology at Huron College in the University of Western Ontario in 1960. "The military and the church were always entwined in him," said his wife, who was not surprised when her husband came home one day and said he wanted to leave the regular army and study theology.
One of his fellow students was retired Archbishop Terry FINLAY. "He used to lighten our studies by coming up with an occasional military term to keep our worship in order, but underneath all that, there was a strong commitment to the faith.
"As his archbishop, I found his approach much more conservative than mine, but we were able to work together," Archbishop FINLAY said, declining to elaborate on the specific issues, other than to confirm that Canon MAXTED was a traditionalist.
He was ordained as an Anglican deacon in 1963, and a priest in 1964. He served in a number of Toronto parishes as he climbed the ecclesiastical career ladder, including Saint Anne's, Saint_John's York Mills, St. Luke's in East York and historic Holy Trinity Church in the middle of downtown Toronto, adjacent to the Eaton Centre.
This appointment was controversial. Holy Trinity, one of the oldest surviving Anglican churches in Toronto, had a dwindling but radical congregation and was in danger of being overpowered by commercial development. The late Archbishop Lewis GARNSWORTHY decided to put himself in direct charge of the church in February of 1977. He appointed Canon MAXTED, who had served under him at Saint_John's York Mills, Vicar in May, 1977, in a move that many observers felt was autocratic and designed to make the church conform to traditional ideas of parish outreach. Five months later, Archbishop GARNSWORTHY issued a statement saying there were irregularities in the ministry, function, government and Anglican tradition at the church and announced he was setting up a commission to recommend corrective action.
Many parishioners were outraged, but Canon MAXTED proved an adept conciliator and "stabilized" the situation, according to Very Rev. Douglas STOUTE, dean of Saint_James Cathedral and one of the celebrants at Canon MAXTED's funeral. "He always had a military bearing and his immersion in military culture made him respect authority and hierarchy, but he never took it too seriously," said Dean STOUTE. " Behind his military facade, he was a gentle spirit and a man of great compassion. He had a huge sense of humour and was a wonderful raconteur."
A year later, he was named an honorary Canon of Saint_James Cathedral, an appointment that allowed a clever editor at The Globe and Mail to top a news story about a robbery at Holy Trinity in 1984 with the headline: "Canon weighs down thief." Apparently, Canon MAXTED had noticed a man grappling with a customer and an employee of the church's café and wrestled the suspect to the ground where he sat on him. "I'm a former infantry officer, so I knew what to do," the burly soldier-priest said. "I may be 52, but I'm still good for one round." After the thief was incarcerated, Canon MAXTED visited him in jail.
In addition to his duties to the Church (he was regional dean of Saint_James Deanery from 1980-1984 and chaplain of the Fort York Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion, the Royal Canadian Military Institute and 54 Division Toronto Police Services) and to the military, where he served in the reserves from 1960 to 1986, Canon MAXTED was a school board trustee in East York from 1974 to 1994 and chair of the East York Board of Education from 1986-92. He also acted in a senior capacity on a number of community organizations from the Metro Folk Arts Council to Toronto-Amsterdam Twin Cities Committee to the East York Cancer Society.
Speaking about Canon MAXTED's intense level of activity, his old friend Mr. SCOT- BROWN said this was typical of an infantry officer. "In the infantry, you were always taking care of your men. When something had to be done, you didn't look at it -- you fixed it. You got on with it."
Besides his service decorations, including the Order of Military Merit, he was awarded the Centennial Medal and the Queen Elizabeth Jubilee Medal. He was also an active member of the Royal Canadian Military Institute and an engaged and energetic family man, performing weddings and baptisms as his children grew and multiplied. And he started what many would consider a new career, as a member of three federal administrative tribunals, the Canadian Pension Commission, the Veterans Review and Appeal Board and the Canadian Forces Grievance Board.
About a year ago, he appeared to be suffering from laryngitis but it turned out to be non-Hodgkins lymphoma that had manifested itself in a tumour in his throat. He started chemotherapy last September, but his immune system couldn't stave off infections. "He liked to set goals," Ms. MAXTED said about her husband, mentioning that no matter how ill he was, he wanted to live long enough to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary in December. Instead, she reminded him on St. Patrick's Day that he had made it to the 50th anniversary of their engagement. He died the next day.
Major the Rev. Canon Kenneth Edward MAXTED was born on June 23, 1931, in Toronto. He died of complications from cancer on March 18, 2006. He was 74. He is survived by his wife, Hendrina, his children Pamela, Sean and Kevin, two grandchildren, his sister and two nephews.

FICK, Ruth Anna (formerly POWERS, née WOOLL)
Died peacefully in her 92nd year after losing a fight with pneumonia in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. Ruth was born in Saginaw, Michigan, to the late John Oliver WOOLL and the former Edith Eliza BAILEY. Ruth attended Saginaw High and continued her education with secretarial studies. She met a young Canadian Evangelist, the Reverend George Max POWERS, senior. They fell in love, were married, moved to Sarnia, had four daughters and later moved to Walsingham where George pastored the Free Methodist church; there they had a son. George died of cancer in 1947 and Ruth continued as a lay pastor in Walsingham for the next three years. In 1951 Ruth was again in love and married William Ernest FICK, senior, of Marston. The family moved to a farm at R.R.#3, Tillsonburg where Ruth had another son. Ruth had a full life, raising a family, farming, playing an active role in the Cornell Women's Institute, and for many years holding positions of service at the Tillsonburg Free Methodist church: youth leader, Sunday school teacher, pianist, organist and board secretary. Ernest died in 1990 and in 1993 Ruth moved to the senior apartments at 31 Maple Lane, Tillsonburg, where she met many new Friends. In 2005 she moved to the F.J. Davey Home in Sault Ste. Marie, where she quickly adapted, again making more new Friends and enjoying delicious meals. Until contracting pneumonia, she remained mentally active, e-mailing and chatting online, and hearing, for the first time, a live performance of Handel's Messiah - a special treat was arriving early, catching the end of rehearsal and hearing her favourite song, the Hallelujah Chorus, twice. It is common to hear her Friends and family say they valued her Friendship and prayer support. Her passing is their loss, not hers. She will be deeply missed.

STOWELL, Jennifer Marguerite (née STURGESS,) R.C.A.
Born December 11, 1919 in Tossac, Pyrenees, France and died December 13, 2006 in Vancouver, two days after a wonderful celebration of her 87th birthday. Jennifer is survived by her only child Georgina (Geordie) daughter-in-law Petra VANDERLEY, her brother Richard and many nieces and nephews and their families. She was predeceased by her husband Keith (1988,) sister Sydney MORSE (1999,) niece Melanie (2005), and beloved brother Robert (2005). Jennifer had a career as a freelance artist and illustrator spanning more than 70 years. Her career began in England as a book illustrator before being interrupted by World War 2 and her work with Hawker Aircraft Ltd. building Hurricanes and Spitfires during the war. She immigrated to Canada from London England in 1948, beginning her new life in Montreal and resuming her artistic career, before continuing to Toronto and then Vancouver. She was the Fashion Illustrator for Holt Renfrew, Lily Simon Boutiques, Mary Rose, Simpson's, Ron Leal, the Lida Baday Collection as well as illustrating for Flare, Style, and Applied Arts magazines. Her prodigious and eclectic talent produced a wide variety of artworks from illustrations, portraits, cartoons, murals, etchings, textiles, sculpture and paintings to taking her talents to the theatre, acting and creating stage sets and costumes. She also wrote and illustrated articles for Toronto Life Fashion, Homemakers, Globe and Mail and En Route magazine. Her work is included in the collections of the McCord Museum, Seneca College, the Canadian Film Centre, and the C.A.P.I.C. Archives, as well as in private collections nationally and abroad. She was proud to have her original 1948 Dior sketch used as the ad promotion for the Royal Ontario Museum's 50th anniversary Christian Dior Celebration and in 1996 she received the Fashion Illustrator Award from the Montreal Gazette, and the Arts Directors Club of Toronto recognized her with their Award in 1977, 1978, 1983. She was inducted into the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts in the category of Fashion Illustration in 2004. Jennifer had an unrelenting curiosity and zest for life which she shared with family and countless Friends, young and old, worldwide. She will be remembered as a woman, muse and friend of incredible talent with the wisdom of the very old soul that she always was. Although proud of her work and of the associated awards and recognition that came from it, her greatest strength was her incredible spirit and passion for life that she shared with all those who came into contact with her. She was a powerful beacon in the lives of many and the loss of her illumination saddens us all. She will be greatly missed but the memory of her wicked wit and contagious laughter will carry us through this darkness. Celebrations of her life are planned for early next year in both Vancouver and Toronto for Friends and family - in lieu of flowers, Jennifer wished donations to be made to Amnesty International in her name. Onward and Upward.

MARKO, Peter
By Natasha MARKO, Page A28
Husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, car salesman, extrovert. Born June 3, 1927, in Zhelevo, Greece. Died July 23 in Toronto of kidney failure, aged 79.
Peter MARKO would often tell the story of his trip to Canada. He'd describe how he looked and felt when he was a passenger on the ship that brought him to this country -- an angry Macedonian peasant boy of 9, with his head shaved to prevent lice and his feet covered with pigskin slippers. When another boy on the ship (a first-class passenger) laughed at his appearance, Peter beat the boy up. The boy was scolded by his own father for his behaviour and Peter felt vindicated. On the seventh morning of his ocean voyage, Peter looked out his window in third class and shouted for his mother: "Mika, Mika!" It was the Statue of Liberty. A train then took the pair to Toronto's Union Station.
Peter and his mother left their one-room house in Greece, the only place he had ever known, to join his father in Canada in 1936. The house was in Zhelevo, a small mountain village in northern Greece. Peter's father left for Canada four months before Peter's birth, and Peter was raised by his mother and grandfather. When Peter first met his father in Canada, he was angry and refused to speak to him in Macedonian, speaking only Greek. Peter was a fighter and a survivor, and he adapted to life in Toronto's west end well.
As a 10-year-old, he was to start school in kindergarten because he did not speak English. He brought an English-speaking cousin to the school to tell officials he would not attend kindergarten and was placed in a higher grade. He learned quickly to make Friends with the right people at school to avoid being bullied.
Peter married Sophie STOYO when he was 19. Peter and Sophie were to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary on July 28, 2006. They had two children: Tom and Sharon. Peter's survivor instincts served him well when, at 20 years of age, he lost his father. He became a father figure to his three young siblings, Helen, William, and Rose. Throughout his life, Peter acted as a father to many family members, opening up his home when they needed shelter or a shoulder to lean on. Peter was also the life of any party. He was at ease with people from all walks of life. He became a regular fixture on Toronto's St. Clair Avenue West.
When his father died, he took over the family business, Marko's Restaurant on St. Clair. His bold personality served him well when he later became a salesman at West York Chev Olds. Peter liked to be busy and continued to work until his death. He delivered his last car to a client the day before he died. He was also an avid golfer and a long-time member of Islington Golf Club in Etobicoke. He had a weakness for gambling and would often play cards with Friends at the golf club or place bets on horses at Woodbine Racetrack. He owned several thoroughbred horses over the years.
Peter was adored by his five grandchildren because he had a particular zest for life. He enjoyed taking them out for dinner, and e-mailing them short notes or passing on funny or touching messages he received from his many Friends. He enthusiastically attended piano recitals, swim meets, and spelling bees. He was proud to become a great-grandfather in 2005, and often remarked in the months before his death that things would be okay because his great-grand_son was replacing him.
At family dinners he would tell stories of his childhood, break into song, or get up and dance. He loved to brag about his strength and good looks. Peter always commanded attention and he usually received it. He was an easy person to love, and he is missed deeply by those who loved him.
Natasha MARKO is Peter's granddaughter.
