KERN, Doctor Rolf Robert
On the evening of Friday, April 21, 2006, Rolf succumbed to heart failure and passed away peacefully at Saint Michael's Hospital in Toronto. After thirteen years battling prostate cancer and five years post kidney failure, his strength could endure no more for his 78 years. Predeceased in 1998 by Inge, his wife of 40 years, Rolf was a loving and devoted father to his three girls Rona and husband Luke O'CONNOR of Los Angeles, Barbara and husband Dougal MacDONALD of Toronto and Petra and husband James SWAYZE of Toronto. His five grandchildren, Elina O'CONNOR, Katrina MacDONALD and Spencer, Olivia and Erika SWAYZE will miss their beloved Opi who leaves a legacy as a caring and conscientious patriarch. Born on August 5, 1927, to Friedrich and Lina in Freiburg, Germany, Rolf and brother Fritz worked the Bakerei Kern before a war-torn Germany saw him imprisoned in a Siberian camp at the age of 18. Before immigrating to Toronto, Canada in 1958 to help spearhead the North American expansion of the Gerling Konzern insurance operations, Rolf completed his PhD in Economics at the University of Freiburg. During his studies, Rolf traveled extensively and was honored as the first German student invited to the United States by the Rotary Club. His business savvy and intelligence earned him the position of President and Director of Gerling Global General and Reinsurance companies where he led the organization to an unprecedented record of 10 straight years of underwriting profit. His passion for beauty in many forms was evident in the rose gardens of his Willowdale home and Muskoka cottage and in his appreciation of music and modern dance. His intuitive investment philosophy saw continued success beyond his retirement where his keen sense for resource stocks and currency trading earned him a following in financial circles. Revered for his wisdom and respected for his strength of character and integrity his greatest attribute was his generosity. As a mentor to future leaders, a helping hand to those in need or the simple gesture of chocolates for the parking attendant, Rolf concerned himself with the well being of others above all. Spiritually, through meditation and yoga, his belief in Buddhist teachings and the reincarnation of the soul will ensure that he will always be among us. 'Life is hard if you take it hard' was his mantra and few people could boast such a robust and fulfilling existence - every day he was with us, Rolf KERN truly lived. Special thanks to Lilia ABOC who was not only a caregiver but a companion to Rolf for many years and whose devotion shone through in his final days. Doctor BAXTER, Nurse Sam and rest of the team deserve credit for making his stay at Saint Michael's so pleasant towards the end. Thanks must also go to the extraordinary group of nurses led by Doctor GOLDSTEIN in the hemodialysis unit of the hospital for their help in sustaining Rolf's life through the past 5 years with kindness and compassion. A celebration of Rolf's life will take place at the Granite Club located at 2350 Bayview Avenue north of Lawrence this Friday, April 28, 2006, from 5: 00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. with a tribute at 6: 30 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Hemodialysis Unit, Saint Michael's Hospital expressed in the name of Rolf KERN, would be appreciated.

SMITH, Donald Edward, M.C. and Bar, M.D., C.M., F.R.C.P.C.
(November 25, 1921-July 11, 2006)
Don grew up in Saint John, New Brunswick with his big brother Bill and his sister Jean. He served overseas in World War 2 in the infantry with the Carlton and York Regiment. He fought courageously in Italy and North-West Europe and was highly decorated for his valour and achievements, receiving the Military Cross as platoon commander and the Bar to the Military Cross as company commander, both in 1944. Just before the end of the War, at the age of 23, while flying to liberate Holland, Major SMITH lost his right leg below the knee and the sight in one eye. After the War, back in Saint John, Donald met Constance MURRAY and proposed to her on Valentine's Day 1946. Later that year, they were married and Donald and Connie moved to Montreal where Don attended medical school at McGill University. Don specialized in Internal Medicine, and then did a residency in London, England. In 1957, Don and Connie moved to Oshawa, Ontario where Don accepted a position at the Oshawa Clinic. Don and Connie promptly proceeded to have their four children. Donald practiced Internal Medicine in Oshawa for 34 years and served for a period as Chief of the Department of Internal Medicine at the Oshawa General Hospital (now Lakeridge Health Oshawa). In the early 1980's he established the first pulmonary function lab and service at the hospital. He retired in 1990 due to his own cardiac health problems. His beloved Connie passed away in 1998, and he missed her greatly. But he finished his days in his family home, which was very dear to him. Fittingly, Don passed away in the coronary care unit at the hospital where he spent so much time helping so many other people. Donald is survived by his sister Jean BAXTER, his brother Bill's wife Mary, and by Don's four children Rod and his wife Patsy, David and his wife Anne, Cathy and her husband Michael, and Edward and his ex-wife Jan, and his eight grandchildren, Emily, Claire, Laura, Hayley, Lysanne, Griffin, Alec, and Dylan. He will be greatly missed, but as one of his grandchildren said "at least Grampie will now be with Grammie". He led a life of great and selfless service to his fellow man. "At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we will remember them." There will be a visitation for Doctor Donald SMITH at the Armstrong Funeral Home, 124 King Street East, Oshawa (905-433-4711) on Friday July 14th from 5-8 p.m. Funeral Service will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations to the War Amps, (Scarborough, Ontario), or the Oshawa General Hospital Foundation would be greatly appreciated.
