Celebration of a life
Superlative after heartfelt superlative was used yesterday to describe the life and legacies of TAILOR/TAYLOR.
By Norman DE BONO and Jonathan SHER, Free Press Reporters, Mon., June 19, 2006
To Cal STILLER, it seemed strangely appropriate that J. Allyn TAILOR/TAYLOR passed away on Father's Day weekend.
After all, it's as though London, its business and philanthropic communities, lost their father figure, he said yesterday.
"The community really looked to him as their father. He was the de facto boss of the business community," said STILLER, a pioneering transplant surgeon here.
"He did not wield that, but it is the way we saw him. "
TAILOR/TAYLOR, 99, died Saturday afternoon. Those paying tribute yesterday described a business giant who gave tirelessly to the community and gently pushed people to be better.
Mr. T., as many Friends called him, was a relentless optimist, said a Londoner who read to him several times a week.
Margi NASH said TAILOR/TAYLOR's recent favourites included Jessie's Journey and Unusual Heroes: Canada's Prime Ministers and Fathers of Confederation.
His optimism was exemplified in his response whenever anyone asked how he was doing. "His answer was always one of two things," NASH said. 'Never better' or 'Better now that you're here.'"
When NASH visited TAILOR/TAYLOR Friday, he was too weak to speak. Even so, when NASH asked him how he was, he mouthed, "Never better."
"A joy, a blessing and a privilege -- that's what it meant knowing him," NASH said through tears.
While he deserved the nickname "Mr. London," he was also a patriotic Canadian, hosting a Canada Day party every year in his backyard.
Daughter Lynn FLEMING/FLEMMING recalled how, in the 1950s, while he was a Canada Trust executive, TAILOR/TAYLOR would go to the basement at Christmas to share a drink with the maintenance workers.
"He didn't care who you were," said FLEMING/FLEMMING. "He shopped at the A and P and bought Jane Parker pies for half-price. He would say, 'I am just a simple Prairie boy.' "
Don SMITH, founder of EllisDon Construction, said,He" left us an example and so many wonderful people have learned from him."
Equally at ease in the worlds of community, philanthropy and business, TAILOR/TAYLOR helped found the London Community Foundation, just as he laid the groundwork for the Robarts Research Institute and helped lead so many businesses by serving on their boards.
"He was a mentor to me," SMITH said. "I used to watch what he did and tried to follow his example. Often when I had to make a decision I thought, what would TAILOR/TAYLOR do? He was great help and guidance."
University of Western Ontario president Paul DAVENPORT described TAILOR/TAYLOR as "one of the great builders of postwar London."
TAILOR/TAYLOR, who served as University of Western Ontario chancellor, brought thousands of jobs to the city by helping lay the building blocks for a burgeoning business community. He was a lifelong proponent of education and research, DAVENPORT said.
"In addition to all his other accomplishments, J. Allyn was also a wonderful friend to so many people in this city. He could light up a room just by walking into it."
TAILOR/TAYLOR was also the only Londoner ever to head the national and provincial chambers of commerce simultaneously more than 35 years ago, said Gerry MacARTNEY, general manager of the London Chamber of Commerce.
"(It) is an inspiration to young leaders everywhere to look at a man like him. He led in a kind and calm way. Many barons of industry were tyrants, but TAILOR/TAYLOR had such a gentle approach. He was soft-spoken, but very focused."
Bill BRADY, who served on several boards with TAILOR/TAYLOR, said his long-time friend pushed people to become better than they thought they could be. Everyone who had any contact with TAILOR/TAYLOR learned from his example how to serve others, BRADY said.
STILLER added that others always looked to TAILOR/TAYLOR as a man with measured, solid ideas. "He was always quizzing me, asking me what was happening. He was always saying 'Tell me, tell me,' said STILLER.
"He had integrity with feet-on-the-ground pragmatism. He was a wise, wise man."
The first time Britta WINTHER spoke to TAILOR/TAYLOR, she was afraid he might throttle her. It was 1998 and TAILOR/TAYLOR had been a guest at the London Convention Centre to hear Prime Minister Jean Chretien at a fundraiser. A heavy back-drop curtain fell eight metres and TAILOR/TAYLOR disappeared beneath it.
WINTHER, who worked at the convention centre, phoned TAILOR/TAYLOR next day and braced herself. "As much as I tried to apologize, he would have none of it," she recalled.
Struck by his kindness, WINTHER invited him to lunch and the two struck up a Friendship.
"He was a modest, humble man who always wanted to talk about you. He made you feel great about yourself," she said.
Years before Fred GOSNELL became London's mayor, he was an unknown businessperson trying to get a start when he called TAILOR/TAYLOR's office and asked if they could meet.
TAILOR/TAYLOR saw him that very day, GOSNELL's son, Deputy Mayor Tom GOSNELL recalled.
"He treated my father the same as when he didn't even know him as he did when he was mayor.
GOSNELL said TAILOR/TAYLOR "made everyone in a room feel so important. He made us want to do so much more. And only after you left the room did you realize he had been the driving force."
TAILOR/TAYLOR was the last of a great generation of men that included publisher Walter Blackburn and brain surgeon Charles Drake, GOSNELL said. "They're a generation that left a legacy."
For the funeral, "we want to celebrate a life," said FLEMING/FLEMMING. "It will be a family-focus only. He has had so many accolades, it is appropriate this be just a family service."
Funeral Arrangements
Visitation is at James A. Harris Funeral Home Wednesday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. The service will take place at Saint_John the Evangelist Church at 280 Saint_James St. (at Wellington Street) Thursday at 11 a.m.
Anecdotes and quotes about and by J. Allyn TAILOR/TAYLOR
TAILOR/TAYLOR once said if he could change one moment of his life, it would be his birthdate. Until recently, he played weekly games of bridge, golf and billiards. "I'm enjoying life," he said, adding he would take as much of it as he could get.
"You should learn from any job you have, not only about human nature, but also about the basic principles of how to conduct yourself in the business world."
Reflecting on his favourite summer job, at a Winnipeg golf course in the 1920s
Mr. London is one name by which he was known. Many of London's power people called him Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR out of respect or Mr. T. out of affection. His Friends called him Allyn.
"I'm keenly aware of my own shortcomings. Do we have time to discuss them? No."
Long after retirement and into planning for the Robarts Research Institute, he would still convene meetings for 7: 30 a.m. When long-time (and younger) friend Bill BRADY protested, TAILOR/TAYLOR said, "Perhaps when I get to be your age, I'll want to sleep in, too."
"My father died at the age of 44 from a leaking (heart) valve, which… in those days was beyond medical science to deal with. Today (fixing it) is like filling a tooth, almost."
Reflecting on the genesis of his passion for funding medical research
TAILOR/TAYLOR called BRADY a few years ago to tell him a move was afoot to rename the Robarts Research Institute as the Queen Mother Elizabeth Research Institute. When BRADY protested, TAILOR/TAYLOR said: "April Fool's" and hung up.
When the historic TD Canada Trust building at Wellington and Dundas streets was named in his honour, TAILOR/TAYLOR cadged a kiss from Mayor Anne Marie DECICCO -- then five more kisses so the photographers could get it just right.
