An Eagle Feather Blows
Somewhere by the roadside
A little feather blows,
It dances softly in the gentle breeze,
Her mama and her papa tied this Eagle feather
In memory of their darling 'Ter,
Who began her Spirit Journey
Not so very long ago.
Zhiibaa'aasige Kwe, our smiling little 'Ter,
She's a grandchild, she's a daughter,
She's a mother and a niece,
She's a cousin and a sister, she's our smiling friend,
Now she walks so happily with the Spirits of her Ancestors.
Somewhere by the roadside
A little feather blows,
It dances softly in the gentle breeze,
Her mama and her papa tied this Eagle feather
In memory of their darling 'Ter
Who began her Spirit Journey
Not so very long ago.
Zhiibaa'aasige Kwe, our smiling little 'Ter,
Here we place our Sacred gifts
Of Sweetgrass, Cedar, Sage and Semaa,
And hope you hear our little prayer,
We beat our drum and hope you hear our song
Somewhere by the roadside
A little feather blows,
It dances softly in the gentle breeze,
Her mama and her papa tied this Eagle feather
In memory of their darling 'Ter
Who began her Spirit Journey
Not so very long ago.
Zhiibaa'aasige Kwe, our smiling little 'Ter,
Guide us darling as we strive
To keep your little angels sweet and strong,
Once again our darling 'Ter
We beat our drum and hope you hear our song....

When the war broke out young 'Jack' lied about his age to join the Canadian Navy at age 17, served on the H.M.C.S. Ontario and H.M.C.S. Matane, earning a Mentioned In Dispatches citation. His career in radio took him from CFJB in Brampton to the Radio Sales Bureau of Canada in Toronto and finally to CKNW in New Westminster British Columbia, thereby inspiring a love affair with the natural beauty of a place where 'you only get snow where you want it, on Christmas Cards and mountain tops.' John was a committed member of Lions Club International, serving as President of clubs in Brampton and New Westminster, where he established many close Friendships which, along with those forged during the war with his comrades-in-arms, flourished through the exchange of letters and emails until the last days of his life. But John's greatest passion, as anyone who knew him can attest, was always his family. He will be greatly missed. Special thanks to all the wonderful professionals who attended to John in the Intensive Care Unit of Saint_Joe's. He could not have been better cared for.

FOX, Frank Arthur -- Dispatch:
By Suzanne MA, Page M6
Frank Arthur FOX loved searching for treasures.
He was born in Clacton-on-Sea, a seaside resort town in Essex, England. On his 17th birthday, with his parents and two brothers, Mr. FOX immigrated to Canada. One year later, he met Claudine O'SHAUGHNESSY -- his most cherished treasure -- on a bus. He sat down on the empty seat next to her and stayed there past his own bus stop. In 1957, the two were married. They would have four children -- Matthew, John, Andrew and Anne -- and five grandchildren.
Mr. FOX ran a building supplies company until 1979, at which point he decided to turn a hobby into his new business. Having always loved tinkering with antiques, he and his wife began buying, repairing and refinishing a host of Canadian treasures.
He was especially fond of collecting Canadian military medals, insignias and badges. He would also create new items by taking the sterling silver handles off old knives and using them to make new objects such as magnifying glasses, letter openers, key chains and ice-cream scoops.
"They made lovely and unusual gifts," his wife remembers. "He always liked creating new things."
But what he enjoyed most was the search. "He really liked meeting the people who were selling the antiques and searching for the right product," Mrs. FOX says. "That was the fun part."

Arthur was a well-respected and charismatic businessman and philanthropist, but even more importantly, he touched everyone he met with his genuine interest in people. He was a true gentleman, in every sense of the word, and his kindness and generosity knew no bounds. Arthur spent his entire working career at the Canada Trust, except for the four years in which he served overseas during the Second World War. He started at the bottom and finished at the top. Upon his retirement, the Canada Trust established a chair at the School of Business Administration at the University of Western Ontario, named: The J. Allyn Taylor and Arthur H. Mingay Chair in Business Administration. In the 27 years that these gentlemen held the positions of president or chairman, the Canada Trust grew one hundredfold and achieved recognition as one of Canada's premier financial institutions. At different times during his business career, Arthur sat on the boards of directors of Algoma Steel, Inglis, Loblaws, Mutualife, Royal Insurance and Sears. His charitable contributions are too numerous to list, but include fundraising endeavours and board participation with the Heart and Stroke Foundation, The United Way, Thompson Hall and Sunnybrook Hospital. Arthur also found time for extensive community involvement through the church, the Kiwanis Club and Rosedale Golf Club, where he served as President.

FOX, John Hamilton
Born January 8th 1925 in Toronto, and died there March 30th 2006 peacefully at Saint_Joseph's Hospital, predeceased by his parents John Hamilton FOX and Alice Arnott FOX (née WHITE/WHYTE) and his sister Margaret DAVIDSON; and survived by his wife, Ella, sons Michael and his wife Susan, Rick and his fiancee Michele IRION, Kevin and his wife Sarah, Steven and his wife Jan and his daughter Lisa; as well as his grandchildren Rebecca, Ben, Ella, Piers, Jack, Edward, and Joe; his step-grandchildren Jennifer, Julian and Chera FRANCOEUR; and his siblings William and Joseph FOX and Lucinda KRETCHMAN. When the war broke out young "Jack" lied about his age to join the Canadian Navy at age 17, served on the H.M.C.S. Ontario and H.M.C.S. Matane, earning a Mentioned In Dispatches citation. His career in radio took him from CFJB in Brampton to the Radio Sales Bureau of Canada in Toronto and finally to CKNW in New Westminster, British Columbia, thereby inspiring a love affair with the natural beauty of a place where "you only get snow where you want it, on Christmas Cards and mountain tops." John was a committed member of Lions Club International, serving as President of clubs in Brampton and New Westminster, where he established many close Friendships which, along with those forged during the war with his comrades-in-arms, flourished through the exchange of letters and emails until the last days of his life. But John's greatest passion, as anyone who knew him can attest, was always his family. He will be greatly missed. Special thanks to all the wonderful professionals who attended to John in the Intensive Care Unit of Saint_Joe's. He could not have been better cared for. As expressions of sympathy, donations may be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association or the charity of one's choice. For information regarding a memorial service to be held at a future date as yet to be determined, contact the Ridley Funeral Home 416-259-3705 www.ridleyfuneralhome.com.

Bobby CUNNINGHAM, 79: Two-sport pro
By Curtis RUSH, Staff Reporter
His father wanted him to be a golf pro instead of a football pro.
Bobby CUNNINGHAM Jr. became both.
As a halfback, he won a Grey Cup championship with the Montreal Alouettes in 1949, a most outstanding player award in 1953 with the Ottawa Rough Riders, and beat the likes of golf legends Moe Norman and George Knudson on the way to winning the Canadian match-play championship in 1959.
"It was unusual at that time to have those combined talents (football and golf) to that degree," said former Port Credit high school teammate Bill CUNNINGHAM, 80 (no relation.)
Bobby GENOVESE, 44, remembers his father as a "rare breed" in sports.
"Someone once asked him what was tougher: football or golf? And he said golf because in football you just react. In golf, there's too much time to think."
Football was also tougher on the body. Injuries eventually caught up with CUNNINGHAM. In the 1990s, he underwent two hip replacement surgeries, suffered two strokes and his leg was amputated above the knee after gangrene set in.
CUNNINGHAM died at the Wexford Residence nursing home in Scarborough on Thanksgiving weekend. He was 79.
He leaves his daughter, Julia FOX, 53, of Toronto, who runs a courier company with her husband; and his son GENOVESE, of Nassau in the Bahamas, chairman and owner of merchant bank B.G. Capital Group. CUNNINGHAM's older sister, Mina, died a couple of years ago.
Friends and family remembered him as a colourful character. "He was the most engaging guy I ever met," said former Alouettes teammate Bruce Coulter, 78, adding that CUNNINGHAM loved the social scene.
His adventurous side and his love of golf took CUNNINGHAM all over the world after his football career, which began in 1947 and ended with a knee injury in 1955.
In 1958, with only $1,000 in his pocket, he spent the winter on the U.S. tour. He estimated he ate 1,000 pancakes on his way through Texas to save money because they were only 35 cents a plate.
His interest in golf was instilled early by his father, who was the golf pro at St. George's Golf and Country Club in Etobicoke for 32 years. In fact, Bobby CUNNINGHAM Sr. and his son both have their names on the Millar Trophy, emblematic of the Canadian match-play championship.
CUNNINGHAM succeeded his father as golf pro at St. George's from 1960 to 1965, and he made a career teaching golf in the Mississauga area.
Client Marian RITCHIE, 66, became good Friends with him. "When he was teaching me golf it was very cute. I said 'I've got this problem because I keep hooking the ball.' He said to me, 'Well, you don't look like a hooker to me.'" she said, laughing. "He was very sharp."
But it was football where he first found success first. At Port Credit High School, his friend and teammate Bill CUNNINGHAM remembered him for his powerful legs. "His thighs were the size of a tree trunk," his friend, the team's quarterback, recalled. "He was also a great kicker who was good for 50 to 55 yards on every kick."
After high school, he joined the Balmy Beach Rugby Club and stayed two seasons. Just under 6 feet and weighing 200 pounds, CUNNINGHAM soon attracted the attention of the Canadian Football League.
In 1948, he signed a $2,500 contract with the Alouettes, turning down the $1,000 offered by the Argonauts. It was a lot of money for a few months of football; the average annual wage at that time was $2,175.
A halfback who could run and catch passes, he helped lead Montreal to the 1949 Grey Cup championship, scoring a touchdown early in the game. A picture of him in a Toronto newspaper shows him snagging a ball. The caption referred to him as "Crazy Legs" CUNNINGHAM.
In 1953, after being traded to Ottawa, he became the first Canadian to win the Jeff Russel Memorial Trophy as the most outstanding player in the division.
"Everybody thought the world of him," said FOX, his daughter, who with her husband Wayne STONE owns and operates Metro Courier Services Ltd. in Toronto. "I was very proud of him and all his achievements."
Over the years, she helped assemble the memorabilia of his life. For that, he gave her his proudest possession, his 1949 Grey Cup ring, telling her to wear it around her neck. To this day, it is never far from her heart.

Popular University of Toronto coach dies, 88
John McMANUS led Varsity hoops team from 1954-1983
By Tim LAI, Sports Reporter, Page E2
Even near the end of his decades-long career as the head coach of the men's basketball team at the University of Toronto, John McMANUS was in better shape than his players -- and that was in his 60s.
"We shared a locker area and many times, we'd be finishing practice and he'd be in the washroom area doing chin-ups on the handle across the stalls," laughed Doug FOX, athletic director at Humber College, who played under McMANUS from 1974 to 1979.
The fitness fanatic, who coached the Varsity Blues for 29 years between 1954 and 1983, never stopped working out, even up until his death Wednesday after his second battle with cancer in two years. McMANUS was 88.
Over his lengthy career in Toronto, McMANUS amassed a 172-152 regular season record, but coached more than 600 games in total. His only title came in 1958 when he led the squad to victory in the Wilson Cup, Ontario's championship game.
He was known at the university, not only for being the longest-serving coach -- he was also the football assistant for 24 years -- but for his physical prowess, as well. He was the definition of a gym rat, playing and coaching every sport possible. He almost became a professional baseball player, but World War 2 began. Before he started at the U of T, he coached every single team at Acadia University in Wolfville, N.S.
"Even when he was sick in the hospital, I'd walk in and there he'd be leaning on the end of his bed, on the railing, doing push-ups on it," said his daughter, Katherine McMANUS- BROWNE, who studied physical education at U of T. "Even at 88, he was still working out twice a day."
His coaching wisdom has been passed on to hundreds of players over the years.
"He helped me with my free-throw shooting," said Mike KATZ, who has been the head coach of the basketball team for the past three years and played for McMANUS between 1968-1971. "He wanted you to place your hands across the seams of the basketball. It's something that I still do with my kids today."
McMANUS's career netted him an award upon his retirement in 1983 for being "a retired coach who exemplified the highest ideals and qualities of sportsmanship and service."
Fittingly, it was the inaugural award and named after him.
There was no funeral or service, as per his wishes, but like the sign-off on his letters, he had a quick final message: "Get in shape and keep fit."
