After leaving Eaton's in the mid-80s, Roger formed his own successful business until his retirement in the 90s.

While in Winnipeg, he relished his stint as President of the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra in the 70s witnessing many of the exciting transformations to the organization during that time. Of his many passions, he generously regaled to those closest his love of books (especially biographies), opera, classical music, film, travel, photography and writing.

FRASER, Walter Scott
By Dick PROCTOR, Page A18
Sports fan, golfer, store owner, veteran, husband, father. Born September 23, 1919, in Picton, Ontario Died September 30, 2005, of natural causes, in Picton, aged 86.
Aside from its legendary mayor, H.J. McFARLAND, Walt FRASER -- the witty, cigar-smoking, sports fanatic and owner of Walt's Men's Wear -- was undoubtedly the most popular personality in Picton, Ontario in the 1950s, '60s and '70s.
Walt's store was the in-spot in Picton for men -- not necessarily for the latest in fashion apparel -- but for the latest in sporting news, gossip, pranks played and pranks planned. Soldiers from the nearby army base, teenagers, farmers and commercial fishermen all beat a path to Walt's. They invariably left with their new duds and a smile, courtesy of Walt's ready wit.
He briefly attended boarding school at Albert College, Belleville, Ontario, but when caught returning after hours via the bed sheets he'd used earlier to leave his room, Walt and the college parted company. He served in the navy during the Second World War, stationed in Ottawa and Halifax. But, Picton was always home. After his parents sold their department store, Walt opened his men's wear shop on the town's Main Street.
Walt followed all the Picton sports teams and loved nothing more than organizing a carload of pals for an away game, driving several hours, chiding the hometown fans and heckling the referee. He frequently ensured there was a post-game steak dinner for the Picton players, usually paying a good portion of the tab himself. Alcohol factored in Walt's life but, he overcame it. When stopped by a policeman two years ago and asked if he'd had anything to drink, Walt replied: "I haven't had a drink in 25 years. Can you say the same thing, officer?"
If he'd had any say in the matter, Walt wouldn't have chosen to die on the eve of the baseball playoffs, with football in full swing, the National Hockey League regular season about to open and all the family coming for Thanksgiving. While Walt closely followed the fortunes of Ottawa's football team, and hockey's Toronto Maple Leafs, golf and baseball were his true sporting loves. He was convinced of this: Had Blue Jays' (then) manager Cito Gaston only known when to remove his starting pitchers, the team would have won five World Series, instead of two.
In the 1960s, Walt sponsored and managed a good men's fastball team made up of local players. The home town fans loved it when, after his pitching ace Roger Chapman whistled two strikes past Bobby Hull, Walt called time and offered the Chicago Black Hawks star a paddle to help him catch up to the next pitch.
At the funeral, Walt's son-in-law Gavin recounted how, after seven years of dating Walt's daughter Erin, he asked Walt for her hand in marriage. Walt replied: "You've had everything else, you may as well have her hand."
Walt lived for golf. He joined the Picton Golf Club in 1934 and was an active member for more than 70 years.
The first on the course every spring, he also organized the diehard tournaments in December. Everybody wanted to be part of Walt's foursome, not only because he was a first-rate golfer, but because of his razor-sharp wit.
"Did you hear what Walt said today?" would ricochet around the course.
He was too ill to play in 2005. His wife Sue and children Scott, Erin, Frith and Rod (and four grandchildren) made certain Walt's ashes were well and carefully sprinkled around the Picton course.
With his ever-present cigar and blue eyes always hinting at a practical joke or a snappy one-liner, Walt FRASER was a true character -- someone who made his town a livelier, happier community.
Dick PROCTOR is a friend of Walt FRASER.

Helen ALLEN, Journalist (1907-2006)
She laboured for decades to improve the lot of unwanted children, many of whom were better off because of her efforts, writes Sandra MARTIN. At the end of the Vietnam War she also helped rescue orphans in Saigon
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S11
The concept may seem bizarre today, but in its era, the Toronto newspaper column Today's Child was an innovative force intended to improve the lives of thousands of emotionally needy and often physically damaged children. In the early 1960s, back in the days when having a child "out of wedlock" was socially unacceptable and before reliable contraception or abortions were generally available, many young women gave their unplanned babies up for adoption. The ranks of healthy infants were swelled by older children who had been abandoned by parents unable or unwilling to raise their own offspring or who had been removed from dangerous situations. Many of these "hard-to-place" children trundled from one foster home to another or marked birthday after birthday in orphanages and other residential institutions.
Helen ALLEN, a journalist who became a crusader for adoption, believed that all children deserved parents and a home to call their own. For nearly 20 years, she devoted her energies to the task through her column Today's Child in The Telegram in Toronto and the long-running television program Family Finder. Although, nobody knows for certain how many of these adoptions were successful, there is enough anecdotal evidence to suggest that many, many children were happier and healthier because of Ms. ALLEN's actions.
"Some social workers were very reluctant at the thought of exposing children to the public in this way, because it was an invasion of privacy, but I was all for it," recalled Victoria LEACH/LEECH/LEITCH, a former social worker and adoption supervisor who knew first-hand the dire circumstances of these children's lives. She and Ms. ALLEN became colleagues and good Friends, sharing the same dedication and sense of humour.
The late media mogul John BASSETT, who was the last publisher of The Telegram, considered Ms. ALLEN's long-running adoption column "her real life's work." Ms. ALLEN "has helped this country enormously by giving new hope and new opportunities to the nation's richest resource, our children," he wrote in a tribute to her in 1982, and "nothing has given me greater pride than being associated with her in this task."
Helen Kathleen ALLEN was born near Saskatoon, the only child of a Presbyterian minister and a school teacher. The family eventually settled in Aurora, north of Toronto, as her father moved from one congregation to another. He died of meningitis when Helen was five and her mother worked as a supply teacher to support them both. Ms. ALLEN later described her childhood as happy, although she regretted that there was never enough money to buy her a bicycle. It was only much later that she looked back as an adult and realized that "it's too bad to be an only child, too bad not to have a Dad."
After graduating from high school in 1925, Ms. ALLEN moved to Toronto to do a four-year degree in modern languages (French and German) at University College at the University of Toronto. By then, her widowed mother had married a man named PALMER, so Ms. ALLEN boarded with a family named GRIFFITHS while she attended university, financed with $2000 from her mother's savings. That's how she met the GRIFFITHS' daughter, Phyllis, who became a classmate, then a journalism colleague and a dear friend and housemate until she died more than 50 years later in 1978.
At U of T, Ms. ALLEN joined the German club, which turned out to be a lively collection of people, including professors Geoffrey HOLT and Barker FAIRLEY, who got together on a weekly basis to sing German songs. An older cousin, who worked on the student newspaper, The Varsity, introduced Ms. ALLEN to the editor, a young man named Charles STACEY. (A year older, he was destined for a stellar career as a military historian and became very well known as a biographer of Prime Minister Mackenzie King.) "Somehow I found myself accepting an assignment to cover a freshie tea that first week. It showed up on the front page, without a word changed, and I was hooked," she presciently told Judith ADAM/ADAMS, the author of the 1982 Ontario government publication, Today's Child and Helen ALLEN.
After graduating in 1929, Ms. ALLEN went to work as a reporter for The Telegram, a newspaper founded in 1876 by John Ross ROBERTSON as a vehicle to promote British and Imperial sentiments. For the next three decades, Ms. ALLEN did general assignment reporting, reviewed movies, covered political events and criminal trials, and edited the women's pages. In covering the 1939 Royal Tour of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth she wrote: "Everyone who has seen her is talking about the Queen. The Queen's smile. The Queen's charm. The Queen's beauty. The Queen's lovely gowns."
What made her name, however, was an assignment that she took on reluctantly in 1964 to write an adoption column for the paper. Instead of being the brainchild of one person, the idea came about as a confluence of incidents, experience and inspiration dating back to the early 1960s when The Telegram ran a front-page story about a young boy being publicly beaten by his father on a downtown street corner. Publisher John BASSETT assigned reporter Andrew MacFARLANE to investigate and write an article on child abuse.
Mr. MacFARLANE contacted the office of Doctor James BAND, the deputy minister of welfare in Ontario, who supplied huge amounts of information on child protection services and took Mr. MacFARLANE to visit an orphanage which housed dozens of children three years of age and under. Mr. MacFARLANE quickly realized that many of these children had short attention spans, played aggressively, and, despite being "cuddled" by volunteers, appeared lacking in warmth and curiosity. Both men believed these children needed families and permanent homes, if they were to have any chance of growing up emotionally healthy.
In 1964, Doctor BAND sought out Mr. MacFARLANE, who by then was The Telegram's managing editor, and suggested he run an "advertising" feature to make the public aware of the plight of these forgotten children. Both Mr. MacFARLANE and Mr. BASSETT took up the idea enthusiastically and assigned the column to Ms. ALLEN, telling her to contact the more than 50 regional Children's Aid Societies that operated in Ontario under the Child Welfare Act, find some children who were waiting for families, and run their pictures and write about them in the paper. The plan was to run Today's Child for a few weeks and check the response.
Children's Aid Societies, which are protective by definition, were largely horrified at the idea of parading children, along with their physical and emotional problems, in a public newspaper. To them, the column reeked of "freak shows" at carnivals. Only three were willing to participate -- Hamilton, Kenora and Toronto. Although disappointing, the response was strong enough to give Ms. ALLEN enough children to produce a daily column for three weeks.
The first child was a 15-month-old girl of mixed race named Hope, a difficult placement in those homogeneous days before the immigration rules relaxed and Canada had an official multiculturalism policy. Nevertheless, 40 prospective adoptive parents wrote in response to the story about Hope. Their letters were passed along to the Children's Aid Society for screening, assessing and processing. "I wrote abut 23 children in those first Today's Child columns that summer," Ms. ALLEN recalled years later, "and when the results were finally assessed, 18 of those youngsters found homes."
After three years of daily columns, Today's Child expanded to other daily and weekly papers throughout Ontario. The following year, Ms. ALLEN proposed doing a television version of the column based on the daily Ben Hunter Program in California, which delivered commercials for a variety of products, saving one day a week for children wanting to be adopted. Armed with a tape of the American show, Ms. ALLEN and Victoria LEACH/LEECH/LEITCH, then Ontario Adoption Co-ordinator, approached CFTO, the Toronto television station that was part-owned by Mr. BASSETT. "It took them all of 15 minutes to make up their minds," Ms. ALLEN reported later. Family Finder, which ran commercial-free, debuted in the fall of 1968 and for years was the longest-running program on the channel.
When The Telegram folded in 1971, the Ontario government hired Ms. ALLEN as an information officer in the Ministry of Community and Social Services. She continued to write the column three times a week (which was syndicated by the government to more than 20 daily newspapers including The Toronto Star), do the television program and speak about adoption to community and service groups.
In the early 1970s, television and newspaper reporting from Vietnam publicized the plight of many of the children who had become victims of the continuing conflict. The orphanages in Saigon were overflowing with abandoned or parentless children. Social changes, including a declining birth rate, had put an end to the baby surplus of a decade before. That fact, plus the human desire to help needy children, had lots of North Americans flying to Vietnam and trying to pick up babies in exchange for cash or services.
The local adoption agencies were floundering, so the Ontario Ministry of Social and Community Services sent Victoria LEACH/LEECH/LEITCH and Ms. ALLEN to Saigon to work with the Vietnamese. As the Viet Cong advanced and the Americans pulled out, the two women rescued close to 60 children, brought them to Canada and found homes for them. "The deputy minister told me, 'if we are going to do this, we will give it the same service we give our own children,' Ms. LEACH/LEECH/LEITCH said.
Ms. ALLEN received many honours, including being named to the Order of Canada and an honorary doctorate from York University and the Award of Merit from the City of Toronto. In the late 1970s, she was at an Order of Canada reception when she encountered fellow laureate and University of Toronto military historian Charles STACEY. " When I was at college, I dated Charles, who was then editor of the Varsity. He was in fourth year and I was in second," she told Ms. ADAM/ADAMS. "He went off to Oxford and then Princeton; I went on to the Tely as a reporter."
Ms. ALLEN and Colonel STACEY, a widower, renewed their Friendship and their affection for each other and were married in a small wedding at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church in Toronto on October 3, 1980. The bride was 73, and the groom 74. A little more than a year later, she officially retired from Today's Child (Judith ADAM/ADAMS took over the column for another seven years) and Family Finder, but continued to spend two days a week answering mail and writing Adoption Bulletins while her husband wrote his books.
The STACEYs were a very companionable couple. They loved to entertain at small dinner parties at Massey College, to read Jane Austen novels aloud to each other and to travel. Col. STACEY died suddenly of a heart attack in November of 1989, after nearly a decade of marriage. She continued to live in their Rosedale apartment until she suffered a heart attack and a fall late in 2002, and moved into the Leaside Retirement Residence.
Helen Kathleen ALLEN was born in Dundurn, Saskatchewan., on August 16, 1907. She died in Toronto of congestive heart failure on November 9. She was 99. Predeceased by her husband Charles STACEY and by her dear friend Phyllis GRIFFITHS, she is survived by her god-daughter Nadine BELL and her family.

BADGER, D. Gordon
Gordon passed away unexpectedly but peacefully while napping in a little stone cottage in beautiful rural Ireland, a land he truly loved, on his septuagenarian elopement and honeymoon vacation with his new bride, Marilyn WEIR. Tragically, Marilyn has had their happiness together cut far too short. Gordon never wasted any time - he knew there might not be a tomorrow and lived each and every day with gusto. Great friend, mentor and presence to so many. Larger than life character with an intellect, enthusiasm and energy that touched a broad spectrum of people in many ways. Missed by a host including the children he loved; Storey, Matthew, Lawrie and Gregg; their mothers Marilyn (McFATRIDGE) and Heather (JACKSON;) grandchildren Hartley and Spencer VIBERT and Will and Sydney BADGER; and in-laws Matthew VIBERT and Kate HUNTER- BADGER. Pre-deceased by his loving daughter Martha, wife of many years Vicky (MacCAUSLAND,) sister Donna Marie ABERLE and parents Donald and Edith BADGER. Born in Cayuga, Ontario May 8, 1936. Chartered Accountant (Clarkson and Gordon) and entrepreneur extraordinaire, 'Badge' had a colorful career that included the founding of Homemakers Digest and most recently real estate development in Florida, with countless adventures in between. He never stopped and was enjoying some of his best successes recently. Gordon had a wonderful ability to embrace life and enjoy it thoroughly. He did so in the comfort of his home in Creemore Ontario where he weighed in generously and meaningfully on community issues; recently in Melbourne, Florida where he was doing business with the enthusiasm of a youngster; in the Domincan Republic where he also made a home and embraced the people there who loved and respected him and to whom he showed the generosity of a true Santa Claus; and the cottage where he perhaps enjoyed life with family and Friends most on Playfair Island, Lake Joseph. He created an environment there that became the foundation for the family. With all of this in his life, and the prospect of sharing it in his sunset years with his new love, he died truly happy. He was a wonderfully unique character, a raconteur who entertained and delighted all. He has left us alone, and we will grieve, but his spirit will remain in our hearts forever. A service will be held for Friends and family at Bloor Street United Church, 300 Bloor St. West, Toronto on Monday, May 8, 2006 (his 70th birthday) at 4: 30 p.m. More importantly, the major celebration of his life that he directed include martinis and good wine will take place at the Badger Hill farm near Creemore on Saturday, June 24 with tee-offs for those who wish to golf on Badger Downs starting at 2 p.m. Friends should please mark you calendars for then and let a family member know if you need directions or help with accommodation. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Mustard Seed Communities, Inc, (www.mustardseed.com) in favour of their Dominican Republic facility in the name of Gordon and Martha Badger (c/o Gregg BADGER, 501 Russell Hill Rd., Toronto M5P 2T1 if desired).
