LYALL, Carol (née DUCE,) B.Sc., R.N.
Born August 9, 1936, died at the Palliative Care Unit of Princess Margaret Hospital, February 9, 2006 after a long struggle with cancer, with active treatment for the past eight years and knowledge of the diagnosis for the past 13 years. She remained active and involved until recent weeks and did her best not to let the disease ever control her life. Carol leaves a great sense of admiration and affection in her children, Catherine, David and Michael and their respective spouses, Jim MacDOUGALL, Michelle WELSH and Cynthia NEWTON. She leaves memories of fun, cookies, and swims in the river for her grandchildren Asenia (5), Tyama (5) and Jorin (3). She leaves a hole in the heart of her husband Alan, and a tremendous sense of awe, love and gratitude that he was lucky enough to share her life for 53 years. She is also survived by her admiring brothers Bill and Dennis DUCE, and Dennis' wife Debbie. Carol innovated, designed and delivered a course in Adolescent Awareness which she taught freelance to coeducational classes of students in grades 6, 7 and 8 and was accepted and admired by students, teachers and parents for 25 years. Carol personified assertive behaviour and lived by her credo which was "It does not make things better to make things worse" and whenever she lent talents, things got better, often without people even realizing that her courageous stance and nice approach had influenced a whole social system. Carol made things better and enriched the lives of all who knew her. Friends may call at the Morley Bedford Funeral Home, 159 Eglinton Ave. West, Toronto (2 stoplights west of Yonge Street), on Tuesday, February 14th, from 10 a.m. until service time in the chapel at 12: 15 p.m. Donations to Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation would be appreciated in lieu of flowers. Everyone is invited to come to a Party of Reminiscence and Celebration at 49 Walmsley Blvd. Toronto after the Funeral, or thereafter.

John BARRY, 74: Wine, women and a hint of danger
Tavern owner was the life of the party
But he also kept a gun under his pillow
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
There are so many stories about John BARRY that you think they all can't be true. And maybe they aren't, but they could be -- and that, in the end, is the whole point of knowing somebody like him.
His life was the stuff of movies -- the slick, finger-snapping movies of the past, where the drinks flowed and the smoke from the ever-present cigarettes rose, Bogey style, in smooth concentric circles from the corner of the mouth. The women were broads, showpieces in tight skirts and tighter angora sweaters; the men sat at their regular tables, doing deals, not all of them legal, as the sax player wailed.
But this was no celluloid romp with Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr. and the rest of the rat-pack reprobates. This was all happening in Toronto, at John Duck's Tavern, an Etobicoke watering hole by the lake since 1866, when ex-British soldier John DUCK opened an inn for stagecoach traffic.
After BARRY bought the place in 1963, it became a clubhouse for men who, like BARRY, preferred to sit with their backs to the wall. Bikers came there; so did off-duty cops. There were days the parking lot was filled with cars bearing Michigan licence plates, belonging to the men in thousand-dollar suits up from Detroit for business meetings in BARRY's upstairs office.
Aulden GELDART was the John Duck bouncer and club manager for 16 years. At 6-foot-2 and 250 pounds, he had the bulk and chops to be able to evict a whole posse of Vagabond bikers from the place. But he said he hated that his boss often packed a gun. "John always carried a semi-automatic, always in the back of his belt, and when he went to bed at night it was under his pillow," he said.
For safety, BARRY had underground parking for his Caddy; he also had a pair of dogs -- variously described as Doberman, American bull terrier or Bouvier, but big dogs, at least 150 pounds each, GELDART said -- that cost him $1,200 each. Most remember one called Boomer.
There were always whispers BARRY might have been a made man, a wise guy, even a hit man. GELDART said there were plenty of Toronto cops "after" BARRY, but his ex-boss was too smart for them. Former police chief William McCORMACK was a homicide investigator in those days and he said he'd remember if BARRY were involved in anything illegal. He doesn't, so it's likely BARRY wasn't.
"I always thought that talk was a lot of bulls -- -," said Rory ROBERTSON, who tended bar between 1969 and 1972. "But John knew a lot of people and I used to think some of them were rounders."
The only thing that most of his Friends and customers cared about was that BARRY -- who died November 12 at the age of 74 -- was a charming guy, a fun guy, the ultimate party guy.
He was a regular at Bardi's Steak House downtown. After hours, he and his boys would take over a private room at Gatsby's on Church St. Every night, it was red wine, and rum and Coke. Every night, it was steak, rare, with a side order of mushrooms. Every night, no one else ever got to pick up the cheque. Maybe that's why someone dubbed him "the old guy," but he liked it and the moniker stuck, even though he was only seven years older than ROBERTSON.
With his wife May and three children safely stashed away in Brampton, BARRY lived upstairs at John Duck's, also the scene of many a party.
"It was a typical bachelor pad," said his daughter Shandra BARRY. "Black leather. Red carpet. Party Central. It was his private club. The joke was that if the apartment door was locked, you don't knock, you don't interrupt the party going on inside."
Women loved him -- not just because he was movie-star handsome and charming and had that glint in his eye, but also because he was a lover who listened as if they were the only person in the world.
The man was charismatic, a great host who transformed the Humber House -- the name of the tavern when BARRY bought it -- into a modern-day legend, the watering hole of celebrities, including CFRB's long-time morning man, Wally CROUTER, country musician Gordie Tapp and the star athletes of the day. The Argos were regulars; so was coach Leo Cahill and three Miami Dolphins players he lured north to a new football league he tried to start, a couple of boxing champs and some Leafs.
The place was known for its Saturday jazz. "If you weren't inside by noon, you couldn't get a seat," ROBERTSON said. The late and hard-living Toronto Sun columnist, Paul RIMSTEAD, often sat at the drums; Diamond Lil from the Skyline Hotel would belt out the songs.
One day ROBERTSON noticed three guys coming in the door who turned out to be members of The Drifters, of Under the Boardwalk fame, and they did a turn at the mike.
"I don't know how much John knew about music, but he liked the way we talked, acted and the atmosphere we created. He liked fun. He wanted to be around, laughing and scratching, baby," said Bruce JAMES, who used to play the sax on those Saturday afternoons.
BARRY was born into one of the leading families of Sudbury; his father was in real estate and politics, made and lost three fortunes and died a very wealthy man, according to Jonquil FURSE, BARRY's sister. When BARRY was about 10 years old, he decided he didn't like attending Scollard Hall, a private school in North Bay, so he hired a taxi to take him home to Sudbury. His father paid the bill.
"John was very electric," FURSE said. "He was a chameleon, into everything, then off."
He was also her favourite brother, who took her fiancé, George FURSE, aside the day they were to be married in a very haute Westmount ceremony and told the astonished groom that if he ever laid a hand on his favourite baby sister, he'd "bust me up bad."
"He was very Runyonesque," George FURSE said, recalling how BARRY then pulled out a massive roll of money -- "I'd never seen that before except in the movies" -- and counted out four $100 bills from the top. "This oughta help you on the honeymoon," he barked.
"He was playing the part," his sister insisted.
After short stints in Sudbury as a miner and owner-operator of a gas station, BARRY hit the States, where his family believes he worked as a boxing promoter and a front man booking gigs for black singers and groups.
Later he owned a Mimico film studio, a limousine company and the company that booked all of the big acts into the Canadian National Exhibition's Grandstand shows.
His daughter Shandra said she remembers being driven in one of her father's limos to meet The Monkees backstage; other acts he brought to Toronto included Sonny and Cher, Red Skelton, Bob Hope, The Jackson Five, The Osmonds and Johnny Cash.
BARRY never stopped making deals. For awhile he owned a gold mine in British Columbia and a company called Iomech Ltd., and held patents for various water purification systems. Every Sunday, when he would drive to Brampton to see his family, he'd take them out for a drive to look at the latest country estate or property he was going to move them to.
"My mother just laughed. Every week it was a new place, a new deal," Shandra said. "He was the wildest ride in the amusement park."
All three children came to work at John Duck's after their mother died in 1979, and Shandra and her brother Jon were there March 5, 1988, when the party ended and BARRY closed the doors for the last time.
"He had it for 25 years; it was a huge part of his life," she said. "It was like a death in the family."
BARRY subsequently lived in several lofts around town, cutting out smoking and cutting down his drinking in later years, but he was diagnosed with esophagal cancer about a year ago. He didn't want people to know he was sick, and when he was hospitalized he didn't want people to visit him. Many did anyway.
His family is erecting a gravestone with the words "The Old Guy" and his favourite saying: "When I was here, I was here."

DUCKETT, Ida
In loving memory of a dear grandmother, great-grandmother and friend, Ida, who passed away February 2, 2002.
You did so many things for us,
Your heart was kind and true, and
When we needed someone,
We could always count on you.
The special years will not return,
When we were all together,
But with the love within our hearts,
You will walk with us forever.
-Sadly missed by Kevin, Debbie, Benjamin, Tyler, Nicole, Dale and Patty.

HANNAN, Robert Clarkson (February 5, 1912-April 19, 2006)
Passed away peacefully in Montreal on April 19, 2006 in his 95th year. Loving husband of fifty-five years to the late Elizabeth Ruth DUCLOS, devoted Father of Joan (Edward (Ted) FLETCHER) and loving Grandpa of Joanne (Derek KENT) and Lynn (Zachary CURRY.) Twin brother to the late Elizabeth PIBUS (Raymond PIBUS) and brother to the late Margaret WALKER. The son of Robert Christopher HANNAN and Laura CLARKSON, Bob was born in Montreal where he lived his entire life, raising his family in Hampstead. He worked as a bond trader before assuming the leadership role with the C.A. Duclos Leather Company, where he worked until his retirement in 1975. In addition to being an astute investor and successful businessman, Bob was a lively sports enthusiast and lived spending time outdoors. He was a highly skilled fly fisherman and enjoyed many years of annual fishing trips with his Friends. Being one of the few men in the group to tie his own flies, he would arrive at the camp every year with an abundant supply of hand-tied flies for everyone. Bob was also an avid skier, and was one of the founding members of the J.B. Ski Club at Mont Tremblant. A life long golfer, Bob was an Honorary Member and past Director of The Royal Montreal Golf Club, where he played many memorable rounds with Friends and family over a period of more than 50 years. While he loved the challenge of the game, it was his respect for the game's traditions and camaraderie that truly fueled his passion. As a past Governor of the Royal Canadian Golf Association, a member of the Canadian Senior Golf Association and the American Senior Golf Association, his zeal for the game took him to many of the world's greatest golf courses. Music was also a passion of Bob's. From his early days of singing in the choir at The Church of the Advent in Westmount and playing the clarinet in the Westmount High School band, you could always catch Bob whistling a tune or tapping his foot to a song he had running through his head. Bob's story telling was legendary - he could always be counted on to enliven a dinner party, a fishing trip or a drink in the 19th hole with one of his memorable jokes. Some of his stories were classics; and although he had told them over and over, his captivating personality, animated delivery, irrepressible sense of humour and wonderful laugh captured the moment. Amongst Bob's greatest attributes were his positive and optimistic approach to life and his ability to make Friends wherever he went. He will be lovingly remembered by all those who had the pleasure of knowing him for his upbeat attitude, his loyalty and strength of character, his straightforward, common-sense approach, his unassuming demeanor and his unwavering ability to live life to the fullest. In this regard, he was an inspiration to his family and Friends. During his last few years, Bob faced the difficulties of dementia with loving support from his family and the caring staff at the Griffith McConnell Residence. He was a truly exceptional person and he will be greatly missed by all. My life's been full, I've savored much, Good Friends, good times, a loved ones touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief, don't lengthen it now with undo grief. Lift up your hearts and share with me, God wanted me now, he set me free. A private family service will be held. Donations in Bob's memory to The Pat Fletcher Golf Foundation, 2315 Cohen, St. Laurent, Quebec. H4R 2N7 would be greatly appreciated.
