WOOD, Graham Robert (September 28, 1958 to September 23, 2006)
Passed away at his home in Kettle Valley, Kelowna, British Columbia after a year long courageous fight with a cancerous brain tumor. He is survived by his loving wife Shirley, daughters Kirsten and Courtney, sons Stuart and Stirling, grand_sons Mason, Hunter, Logan and David, parents Percy and Jean of Flesherton and his older brothers John and Nigel. Graham's first love was for his family with whom he enjoyed many good years and happy times skiing his beloved mountains. Graham attended Grey Highlands High School from where he went to O.A.C. at the University of Guelph. Eventually his love of mountains and skiing led him to study Ski Resort management and development at Humber College. This became a very successful career. After developing ski resorts in British Columbia and Vermont, he and Shirley brought their family back to British Columbia in 2002 following his appointment as President/Chief Executive Officer of the Kettle Valley Development, until October 2006 when his illness began. Many tributes were paid at his funeral which took place in Kelowna on September 27. He will be remembered by family, Friends and colleagues for his great zest for living, and will be very much missed. Thank you to all those who have given their support and prayers throughout the past year.

CARVER, Stephen James
In his 95th year, passed away peacefully at the Hants Community Hospital, Windsor, Nova Scotia, on Saturday, September 9, 2006. Steve was the dear husband of the late Florence Gladys CARVER (WAINWRIGHT) and dear father of Neil of Kitchener, Ontario and Frances (Jucker) of Wolfville, Nova Scotia.

Grandfather of Matthew, Megan, Fiona, Sarah, Jonathan and Simone together with his extended family Brian WOOD, David COOK, Chad BARCLAY, Amie KIDDLE and Chris LEAR. Great Grandfather of Owen and Emily. Born on July 31, 1912, in Forest Gate, London, England. Steve immigrated to Canada with his family in 1955 and resided in Toronto for over 30 years. Florence was the love of his life and on her passing he moved to London, Ontario, to be closer to Neil and family. He made many Friends there through his church, love of music and game of bridge. When Steve turned 90 years he decided to move to Nova Scotia to be nearer to Frances and Peter. He enjoyed the last four years of his life at Gladys Manning Retirement Home, Windsor, Nova Scotia. He so appreciated being welcomed there and developed a close Friendship with all staff and residents. Steve loved Canada and during his career as a manufacturer's agent he travelled extensively throughout Ontario and after retirement explored and studied Canada from coast to coast and up to its far North. From his earliest years he retained a strong devotion to his church.

Steve volunteered and served throughout that conflict as a commissioned officer of the Royal Artillery. He attended the Nuremberg trials in Germany when peace and freedom had been achieved. Cremation has already taken place. Funeral service will be held on Wednesday, September 13, 2006 at 2: 00 p.m. at Christ Church, Windsor.

She was in the first Grade One class at Prince of Wales Public School in Shaughnessy. In 1931-2 she completed in one year the two-year art program at the Ecole Bisschoffseim, in Brussels while her family was living there. Subsequently, she attended the Vancouver School of Art and Design. In 1936 she married Ross TOLMIE and they moved to Ottawa where Ross worked for the Department of Finance until the end of the Second World War. He then established his own law practice.

She loved to cross-country ski in the Gatineau and to spend summer days swimming in MacKay Lake and at the Five Lakes Fishing Club with the family.

Kenneth McILWRAITH, Officer and Diplomat (1917-2006)
The quiet ambassador had some remarkable wartime adventures -- patrolling Palestine on horseback and being taken prisoner by the French Foreign Legion, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S11
A very private, modest person, Kenneth McILWRAITH disliked talking about himself almost as much as he loved playing golf after he retired from the diplomatic service. Nevertheless, he had some extraordinary adventures in his long life.
Although Canadian born, he served with the Royal Wiltshire Yeomanry, one of the last British cavalry regiments to still use horses at the beginning of the Second World War. He was captured by the French Foreign Legion in the Syrian desert in 1941 and held for two months as a prisoner-of-war of Vichy France.
After the war he had a lengthy career as a diplomat and ultimately became Canadian ambassador to Norway and Iceland. "He was a man of infinite courtesy and patience and he helped train his juniors in a methodical and systematic way that was quite rare among senior officers and heads of missions," said Roy MacLAREN, a former High Commissioner to London and one of Mr. McILWRAITH's juniors at External Affairs. "The juniors in the department greatly admired him. He would take any amount of time helping to train us and showing us by example how to conduct ourselves," said Mr. MacLAREN. "He was a very fine person."
Kenneth Douglas McILWRAITH was the younger son of William Norman McILWRAITH and his wife Ruby (née SOMERVILLE.) His father, who had left school at 16, was hired as a clerk by George Herbert WOOD and James Henry GUNDY as one of their first two employees on the day they opened their investment firm in 1905. Mr. McILWRAITH became such an adept and valued investment analyst that five years later, when he was 30, the founders asked him to open the London office of Wood Gundy (which is now part of Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce).
Although a decidedly anglophile couple, the McILWRAITHs returned to Canada every summer to their cottage on Centre Island in Lake Ontario across the harbour from Toronto, and deliberately came back to Canada in the penultimate year of the First World War so that their second son, Kenneth, could (like his elder brother William) be born on Canadian soil. As well, Mr. McILWRAITH "did not trust the quality of British medical treatment," said his grand_son Bill McILWRAITH in a e-mail from Thailand where he owns a small resort.
Ken was sent to board at Boxgrove preparatory school in Guildford, Surrey, from the age of 8. At 13, he went to Rugby School, near Coventry in Warwickshire, the same school that the soldier-poet Rupert Brooke had attended, and then went up to Cambridge where he studied English literature at Clare College, graduating with a bachelor's degree in 1939 and a master's the following year.
Mr. McILWRAITH joined the British Army as a second lieutenant and served with the Royal Wiltshire Yeomanry, a regiment that can trace its lineage back to 1794. At the time Mr. McILWRAITH enlisted, the regiment (which had been given the honorific Royal in 1831 and designated the Prince of Wales's Own in 1863 in tribute to the future King Edward VII) was still a cavalry unit, a tradition that must have appealed to the horse-loving Mr. McILWRAITH. He, along with his batman, served in Palestine, riding his own two horses (which he had shipped by train and boat from England) on patrols. It was only at the end of 1941, two years into the war, that the regiment was mechanized, following its transfer to the Royal Armoured Corps.
While serving as a regimental liaison officer in the Syrian desert, Mr. McILWRAITH and his batman were captured south of Palmyra on June 2, 1941, by a French patrol (of Arab soldiers with French officers, as he later explained in a letter to his parents). As France had fallen to the Germans the year before and established the Vichy collaborationist government, the French and the British were technically at war.
Mr. McILWRAITH was taken to the local commandant, a captain in the French Foreign Legion. After a noisy exchange, the commandant sent his prisoner on his first flight by "aeroplane" to Homs, about 145 kilometres west of Palmyra. "The plane was a very ancient affair (four-seater biplane), the air currents over the desert were particularly active, and the pilot and navigator were more concerned with some bottles of wine they had brought with them than with the smooth progress of their flying chicken-crate," he wrote to his parents in September, 1941.
Lieutenant McILWRAITH was transported along with other captured British officers to Alefsis on the outskirts of Athens. That's where he saw the Germans for the first time. "The Jerries paid no attention to us other than to glance with a certain bovine curiosity at the rather motley looking party of British officers. It was obvious, however, that the French depended on German authorization for every move they made," he wrote.
Another "hair-raising" flight later, the prisoners reached Salonika, where they were kept in filthy conditions in a warehouse for five days and then interned for two weeks in the hold of a French passenger ship in the harbour. After the Saint Jean d'Acre Armistice was signed on July 14 between British forces in the Middle East and Vichy France forces in Syria under General Henri Dentz, he should have been returned to the British. The prisoners were shown the armistice and allowed to read the clause demanding their immediate return to the British, but they were still loaded on a train and sent across enemy-occupied Europe and through Germany to Toulon, France -- all the time in ghastly conditions, without adequate food or water.
In Toulon, he and the other officers were finally released under the terms of the armistice and sent back to Beirut on a French ship that sailed through the Mediterranean, enjoying considerably better conditions than he had endured on his outward journey. He arrived in Cairo on August 19, a little more than two months after his capture and after 10 days leave, returned to the fighting.
The Royal Wiltshire was the first British tank regiment to engage the German (and Italian) forces under General Erwin Rommel at the crucial battle of El Alamein in North Africa in 1942. Mr. McILWRAITH missed the fighting because he was ill with jaundice and desert sores, (a virulent form of impetigo that was exacerbated by sand, heat and the confined quarters in tanks). The sergeant who took his place was killed almost immediately, according to Mr. McILWRAITH's daughter Mary.
He later served in Norway and was demobilized with the rank of captain in 1946. Although he survived the war, many of his school Friends and army colleagues were killed and he suffered from horrible nightmares about the horrors he had witnessed. His daughter, Mary McILWRAITH, can still remember him shouting in his sleep and waking everybody up. As a result they rarely talked about their father's war experience.
When peace came, his father wanted him to join Wood Gundy, but he resisted and opted instead to study Canadian history at the University of Toronto for a year with a view to joining External Affairs (now Foreign Affairs and International Trade), which he did on September 1, 1948, after successfully writing the entrance examinations. As a student, Mr. McILWRAITH lived in a boarding house on Lonsdale Road. That's where he met Ruth (née KEOGH) RICHARDSON, a widow one year his senior and the mother of two little girls, Deirdre and Darragh. Her husband Pat had fought with the Canadian forces and been killed in Holland near the end of the War.
Although of different religions -- Mr. McILWRAITH was Protestant and Mrs. RICHARDSON was Irish Catholic -- they married in 1951 just before he received his first foreign posting to Geneva. During their three years in Switzerland, the McILWRAITHs' daughter Mary was born. The family returned to Canada and lived in Ottawa where Mr. McILWRAITH was a member of the inspection service, charged with travelling the globe to observe and report back on conditions in Canadian embassies and diplomatic missions. The McILWRAITH's final child, Sheila, was born in Ottawa just before their next posting to Tokyo in 1958. They travelled by ship, as Mrs. McILWRAITH disliked flying, a trip that her daughter Mary still remembers as the height of luxury and glamour. After a three-year stint, the family went back again to Ottawa where Mr. McILWRAITH was head of personnel for External Affairs.
In 1964, the fluently bilingual Mr. McILWRAITH was posted to Paris at the height of the first wave of Front de Liberation du Québec violence in Quebec and during a troubled diplomatic period between French president Charles de Gaulle and the Canadian government. While working in the embassy he took some pleasure in recounting to his colleagues how an earlier French administration had held him as a prisoner-of-war, according to his old friend and colleague Peter Towe, former Canadian ambassador to the United Nations. Mr. McILWRAITH's final posting was to Oslo where he served as ambassador to Norway and Iceland from 1972 until 1976.
He took early retirement at 60 and continued to live in Ottawa where he enjoyed playing golf, meeting with old Friends from External and reading. He and his wife separated in 1990 and she returned to Toronto where she died in 2004.
Mr. McILWRAITH, who continued to live in Ottawa in the family home with his step-daughter Darragh, was in good health, surviving prostate cancer and melanoma, until the cancer metastasized to his urinary tract. He died shortly after receiving the diagnosis and having refused treatment.
Kenneth Douglas McILWRAITH was born in Toronto on May 25, 1917. He died in Ottawa on September 11, 2006. He was 89. He is survived by his four daughters, three grandchildren and his extended family.
