THORNTON o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2006-11-01 published
THORNTON, Hugh Richard
Loving and adored father, kind and devoted husband to Bardie, Hugh passed away peacefully at home surrounded by the love of his family on October 25, 2006 after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. Born on February 4, 1929, in Woodstock, Ontario, to Jessie Robertson and Percy Sanford THORNTON, he was the youngest of eight children. Love and appreciation of music and fine art were always encouraged in the household by his mother, an accomplished pianist, and at an early age Hugh began to show great promise in drawing, illustrating and painting. He loved to talk about his days growing up in a large family where late-night chats would turn into early morning discussions of philosophy, science, the arts, and politics. The eight children loved to play pranks on each other, build water-glass orchestras and go-carts, read together and play music. Being in a large family he learned to assume responsibility early, and at age 11, he worked as a parcel boy at Loblaws in order to buy his first bike while later he took on summer jobs delivering ice and bread. The family moved to Toronto in 1938 to the High Park area where Hugh attended Keele St. Elementary School and Humberside Collegiate. At school he excelled in art, music, and literature. He met the love of his life, Barbara BRIGHAM, when she was 15 and he 16, and four years later, they were married while Hugh was attending the Ontario College of Art in the fine art program. He switched into the commercial program when he realized he would need to be able to support a family. During college, Hugh worked steady nights at Goodyear and Stelco, paying for all of his tuition. He won two scholarships and a bursary before he graduated in 1951 and continued to work at Goodyear upon graduation. Subsequently he was employed at Rabjohn Illustrators and after 1 year there, he went to Avro Aircraft where he quickly rose to department head. In 1955, after 3 years of top-secret illustration on the Arrow aircraft program, Hugh left to start his business in partnership as Industrial Art and Publicity Associates which subsequently became Thornton Hall Limited. As an employer, he was very fair and many times in the early days had to finance the payroll unbeknownst to his employees. Usually Hugh would be the last one to close the door, well into the early morning hours, as he built a successful career as illustrator, photographer, artist, copywriter, designer, and typographer. He was a rare one-stop talent that many envied and yet he was the most unassuming man to all who knew him. During the rare moments when he would take time for himself, he would relax with reading or playing Mendelssohn, Chopin, Beethoven and Bach piano pieces. Hugh and Bardie had to be thrifty in the early years, seldom living beyond their means, but still managing to always throw great parties with their many Friends and relatives. The door was always open at the Thornton household, laughter abounded, and visiting out-of-town relatives were never expected to stay in a hotel. In 1960, they bought a cottage on Buckhorn Lake and many happy weekends were spent fishing, water-skiing and boating. After Buckhorn was sold, they bought a cottage on Boshkung Lake north of Minden, Ontario, where Hugh loved to walk in the country with his artist's pad and camera in hand, creating ideas and sketches for some his most beautifully realized landscape paintings. Hugh provided a wonderful home in Don Mills for his wife and children, and loved to go on vacation with their Friends to sunny climes during the winters. He and Bardie instilled in their children strong family values of honesty, integrity, humility, and grace. Hugh was delighted to engage in conversation with his children and extended family and to be taken to task by his kids in discussions on politics or philosophy. The bantering and humour that went on around the table, even right up until the days before his passing, will be remembered and cherished by them forever. He was very proud of his children and their spouses and his adored grandchildren. Hugh was most proud of his accomplishments that occurred in his post-retirement years when he returned to painting. His many beautiful works of art adorn the halls of the family home, and the homes of Friends. He was eternally grateful to the Minden Hills Cultural Centre where his works were regularly shown each summer at the Agnes Jamieson Gallery and where, just in October, he was awarded 1st place in the People's Choice Award at the Members Show. He leaves his beloved wife of 56 years, Barbara BRIGHAM, and their loving children David LIVINGSTONE (Paula ZINOVICH) of Victoria, British Columbia, Gerry THORNTON (Stephen MOORE) of Toronto; and Andrew THORNTON (Sandra REYNOLDS) of Barrie, Ontario. Left to grieve for their adored Grandpa are Colin, Raeanne and Richard MOORE, and Jesse and Emma LIVINGSTONE. Hugh was predeceased by all seven of his siblings: Philip, Margaret (Bud BURROWS,) Bob (Phyllis, Helen,) Marion (Frank KENNEDY), Don (Mimi); Anne (Vince RUSSO), and Gerry. He was a wonderful uncle to Doctor Dan THORNTON (Donna,) Carol PAGNACCO (Ernie), Brian KENNEDY (Katie), Keith KENNEDY (Joan), Gail WILLIAMS (Ken,) Linda CLARY, the late Ted THORNTON, Andrea THORNTON, Philip RUSSO (Mary), Vicki BENOIT (Jerry), Eric Russo, Dianne THORNTON (Mark RECZKIEWICZ), Ian THORNTON (Lisa McLAUGHLIN) and Rob THORNTON. He is survived by his sisters-in-law Hilde THORNTON of Toronto (Dr. Harry HURWITZ,) Leonore THORNTON of Kingston, Jean CAWLEY of Vernon, British Columbia and children Tom, Cathy, and Joy Frances BRIGHAM (John DAVIES) of Victoria and children Becky, Tony, Judy, and Tim; along with brothers-in-law Joe BRIGHAM (Mary) of New Bern and son Phil; and Bill BRIGHAM (Pearl) of Mount Hope and children Cathy, Ruth, and Terry. He is lovingly remembered by dear cousins Kirk and Mary THORNTON of Orillia and Marilyn, Andrea, and Chrissie LEMIEUX of Toronto. He leaves many grand nieces and nephews and a great-grand niece. Deeply saddened are Friends from high school days, business and the art world, the cottages at Buckhorn and Boshkung Lakes, Don Mills and Aurora neighbours, as well as the many caregivers whose hearts were touched by his incredible courage and ceaseless wit and sense of humour. Special thanks goes to our primary care day nurse, Melissa, and primary care night nurse, Dan, our primary support worker, Jacquie, and most especially the Dies family, Bill, Joan, June, Rob, Paul, and Joanne for their generosity of spirit, Friendship, time, love, and personal care for Dad during this difficult time. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Southlake Regional Health Centre Foundation (Cancer Program) would be appreciated. Address: 615 Davis Dr., Suite 304, Newmarket, Ontario. L3Y 2R2. Alternatively, donations may be made to the Hugh Thornton Award. This has been established by the Minden Hills Cultural Centre to be given to a special Grade 8 student at Archie Stouffer Elementary School in Minden who has shown an interest and/or potential in the arts. The address is: Hugh Thornton Award, c/o Dianne GRAHAM, Agnes Jamieson Gallery, 176 Bobcaygeon Road, Minden, Ontario. K0M 2K0 Cremation has taken place. A public memorial service will be held on Sunday, November 19, at Trinity Anglican Church, 79 Victoria St. in Aurora, Ontario at 2 p.m.

THORPE o@ca.on.middlesex_county.london.london_free_press 2006-01-26 published
Killed 'over nothing'
Single father, 40, dies of gunshot wounds in a Saint Thomas pub
Saint Thomas -- One minute yesterday morning, Robert THORPE Jr. was sitting in a downtown bar here with an acquaintance.
The next, he was dead of gunshot wounds and the man suspected in his shooting was himself shot by police.
"It (the shooting) was over nothing," a grieving Carol THORPE said of the fatal shooting of her 40-year-old son, Robert, in the Manx Arms Restaurant and Pub on Talbot Street, a lunchtime hangout for the city's downtown business crowd.
Carol THORPE said her son, a single dad who lived for his nine-year-old daughter, Hailey, was shot "six or seven times."
THORPE's shooting was the first homicide in Saint Thomas in 13 years.
Saint Thomas police said yesterday THORPE was shot just before 1 a.m. He was taken to hospital, where he died.
A man police say is a suspect, Nelson MERRIT, 33, of 348 Wellington Street, was shot and wounded minutes later by two Saint Thomas police officers in a nearby parking lot. The province's Special Investigations Unit is investigating MERRIT's shooting, while Saint Thomas police are in charge of the homicide probe.
Rose BLISS of Special Investigations Unit said two officers fired at MERRIT, who was taken to hospital in London with non-life- threatening injuries.
He has not been charged.
BLISS said last night MERRIT would be turned over to Saint Thomas police when released from hospital. BLISS would not say how many shots were fired by police or if the suspect exchanged gunfire with the officers. She also would not say if a weapon was found.
THORPE was described by his mother as a "brilliant kid."
Carol THORPE said her son was a tool-and-die maker at the Timken plant in Saint Thomas, where he had worked for more than 20 years. She said he also had a boat in Port Stanley and loved fishing with his daughter. She said her son was divorced and had custody of his daughter, who now is staying with her other grandparents.
"He spent many, many hours with his daughter," Carol THORPE said. "He was her world and she was his life. He did so many things with her. He built her a go-kart. You name it and she had it."
THORPE said her son was a handyman and had gutted and fixed up old homes in Saint Thomas, one of which he lived in.
Crime tape surrounded the front and back entrances of the Manx Arms yesterday.
Saint Thomas residents interviewed yesterday didn't know there had been a shooting.
"I didn't have a clue what happened," said a woman who lives in a rear apartment unit above the bar. "I didn't hear a thing when I was asleep."
Donny BURT, another apartment dweller, said he was up until 3 a.m., but didn't hear anything.
He called THORPE's shooting isolated, saying people don't usually pull out guns in Saint Thomas.
The operator of a nearby business said the shootings underscore the dangers of bar life -- even in Saint Thomas.
"I tell my son all the time you never know what will happen in a bar. I tell him to keep his mouth shut because somebody always wants to fight."
Saint Thomas police Const. Glenn HODGSON said police were called to the Manx Arms at 12: 50 a.m. but wouldn't say what happened in the bar before the shooting.
He said police couldn't comment further because they're prohibited from discussing cases in which the Special Investigations Unit is involved.
The bar's management could not be reached for comment.
The Special Investigations Unit, a civilian agency, investigates circumstances involving police and civilians that have resulted in serious injury, sexual assault or death.
BLISS said seven investigators have been assigned to yesterday's shooting.
The last homicide in Saint Thomas involved a husband and wife. Soodarsan BAJRANGIE- SINGH, then 62, was convicted in 1996 of the second-degree murder of his wife, Madeen SINGH, then 58. She was shot 13 times in the backyard of their Centre Street home. SINGH was sentenced to life in prison.
Saint Thomas police were last involved in a shooting in 1985, when two city police officers shot Gary STEVENSON, 36, in his backyard on Churchill Street after he pointed a gun at them.

Bernard OSTRY, 78, played key culture role
By Canadian Press, Thurs., May 25, 2006
Toronto -- Bernard OSTRY, one of the most creative public servants of his generation, died of cancer yesterday at 78.
Stylish, intellectual and visionary, he helped shape the country's cultural infrastructure as a government official in Ottawa and Toronto and, late in his career, as head of TVOntario.
His recent gifts to the Royal Ontario Museum and the University of Toronto's Massey College stand to enrich Toronto's cultural life for years to come.
High Style: The Ostry Collection at the Royal Ontario Museum was published last fall to catalogue the rich Art Deco and Art Nouveau furniture collection OSTRY and his wife, Sylvia, donated to the museum.
"The Ostry collection was really what justified us being able to create an all-new gallery on 20th-century design," Royal Ontario Museum director William THORSELL said yesterday, of a space to open next year.
Massey College established the Bernard Ostry Foundation 1½ years ago with $500,000 from paintings OSTRY sold at auction.
At high school in Winnipeg, OSTRY met his future wife, Sylvia KNELMAN. They studied at the University of Manitoba, did post- graduate work in England, then took up senior public service posts in Ottawa.
In 1970, OSTRY became assistant under-secretary of state, credited with being the chief architect of a number of multicultural initiatives under then prime minister Pierre Trudeau.
He later was secretary-general to the National Museums of Canada, deputy minister of communications and Paris-based special adviser to western Europe on culture and communications technology.
In a parallel career, Sylvia OSTRY served as head of the Economic Council of Canada and a director of the Paris-based Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development.
"They made a very unusual and potent combination," said Allan Gotlieb, former Canadian ambassador to Washington.
In 1985, after serving as deputy minister in three Ontario ministries, OSTRY took charge of TVO. For seven years, he directed the educational channel's huge growth in international deals and became one of the country's most eloquent defenders of public broadcasting.

GRIFFITHS, William F.
Died peacefully surrounded by his family Friday, July 14th at the age of 91. Bill was a caring and devoted husband of the late Madge GRIFFITHS (1915-2004) and loving father of Vicki and Debbie. He was also a proud grandfather of Rebecca, David, Jacqueline, Faith and Angela and dear brother of Kaye MILLER and the late Violet ROBINSON and Mayme THORSTEINSON. Bill was born January 5th, 1915 in Saltcoats, Saskatchewan and lived for close to two years in Aber Frau, North Wales as a young child with his mother and sister, Violet. He began a lifelong career in the grocery business at the age of eight when he delivered groceries for the local food store in Saltcoats. He began working with Canada Safeway Limited at the age of 19 in Regina, Saskatchewan moving to various towns in the province until he became the youngest store manager in the company's history in Shonavan at the young age of 23. In 1940 he was transferred to Rosetown, Saskatchewan where he met his future wife, Madge MAYCOCK, the dietician at the local hospital. He joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1941, served as a rear gunner on the 415 and 419 Squadrons and completed two tours over Europe earning him the Distinguished Flying Cross presented to him by the King of England in 1945. While overseas, he reunited with his love, Madge and they were married in Tourquay, England November 5th, 1945. Following the wedding, Bill was transferred to Germany where he was part of the Nazi war trials. Upon his return to Canada, he continued his working relationship with Canada Safeway in Vancouver in 1947 where he managed a store for six months and then moved into the office as a produce buyer. He subsequently moved to Saskatoon in 1948, and finally to Winnipeg in 1950 for the remainder of his working career. There he continued with Safeway until his retirement in 1980 having served over 40 years with the company and culminating in his final role as Chairman of the Board of Canada Safeway Limited. Bill was an extremely supportive and generous individual to many members of his family as well as Friends both in Canada and in Wales. A private family memorial service will be held Tuesday, July 18th, 2006 at 1: 30 p.m. at Mount Pleasant Cemetery. Reception to follow, from 3: 30 pm, at 41 Tofino Crescent.
