LANDON, Ryan
The family of the late Ryan LANDON wish to extend heartfelt thanks and appreciation to our dear relatives, Friends, neighbours and the community for their floral tributes, monetary donations, cards, letters and drawings, photographs and videos, phone calls, food, expressions of sympathy and all acts of kindness in the recent loss of our cherished son and brother, Ryan. Special thanks to Father Jim CARR who supported us at the hospital with his prayers and presence, his regular visits and his comforting words the Saint_James Anglican Church Women, choir, and members of Saint_James Anglican Church for the beautiful memorial service and their continued care and concern. Thank you to Doug and Janet DYNES at the McBeath-Dynes Funeral Home for providing a warm and comforting environment in which to celebrate Ryan's life. Special thanks to Doctor McBRIDE and staff at Alexandra Hospital in Ingersoll, Dr. GAN and staff at London Health Sciences Centre-Victoria Campus and Doctor CORDOTTO and staff at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto, for their amazing expertise and excellent care and support for Ryan and our family. Thanks to the Ingersoll Fire Service, Oxford County Emergency Medical Services and the Oxford Ontario Provincial Police for their quick response and care. Sincere thanks to Ted WALKER and Ryan FURNANDIZ for their bravery -- for giving us the opportunity and honour to personally say goodbye to Ryan. A genuine thank you to our special "ninjas" and "angels" who supported us daily and continue to hold us up -- words can never express how we feel. Heartfelt thanks to Ryan's loving family, godparents, Friends, pallbearers, co-workers and Seiwa-Kai Karate family who personally shared in celebrating Ryan's life through their presence, memorials, inspirational words and comforting support. We have been blessed in so many ways. Ryan magically touched several lives in his short adventure with us -- both young and old. His discipline for karate led him to earn his 3rd dan black belt; to achieve the title of Sensei and to become a teacher to others -- not only in karate but in life as well. Ryan's passion for magic also lifted the spirits and minds of those who had the honour of watching him perform. His gift to make everyone smile and laugh, and his strong yet gentle heart will forever be remembered. We miss you Ryan! Toddles! Love Davis, Deb, Kristy and Corey.

Leslie YEO, Thespian (1915-2006)
British-born actor who arrived in Newfoundland to start his own theatre company went on to star at the Stratford Festival and to run the Shaw Festival
By Unnati GANDHI, Page S9
Toronto -- Every Sunday afternoon for as long as anyone can remember, Leslie YEO would be in his tiny Toronto kitchen, sleeves rolled up and apron tied on, cooking up a feast for a small group of family and Friends.
For that one evening, no matter what problems he faced during the rest of the week, traditional roast beef and Yorkshire pudding were always served, the good china was always out and pleasant conversation always flowed.
"Are you sure those potatoes are done?" Mr. YEO, an actor and theatre director whose career spanned 60 years and who was best known for his role as alcoholic Elwood Dowd in the stage play Harvey, would jokingly ask his wife Grete, as he hovered about in the kitchen.
The weekly dinners were such a hit that Mr. YEO's actor friend, Eric House, was a staple around the family dinner table every Sunday for 20 years. "It was a small kitchen, and very busy. But it was a good time," Mrs. YEO said this week. "Sundays were always a good time."
Putting others first and keeping them entertained came naturally to Mr. YEO, whether it was at home with his family, on stage at the Stratford Festival, on television screens across the country or in films such as Canada's first full-length feature film The Luck of Ginger Coffey (1964), based on the novel by Brian Moore and starring Robert Shaw as an out-of-work Irish immigrant who moves to Montreal with his wife (Mary Ure), and teenage daughter (Libby McClintock) in hopes of a better life.
"He loved an audience," Jamie YEO, the actor's son and only child said. "It kept him going."
But the drama in Mr. YEO's life began long before he performed in more than 500 roles and helped establish one of the country's most reputed theatre companies.
Leslie James YEO was the second of four sons whose parents, Sibyl and Fred YEO, operated a modest men's wear store in Swindon, Wiltshire, a small town that lies between Oxford and Bristol. However, the effects of the First World War still lingered in much of Britain and the shop went bankrupt in 1929, causing the household to split up. Fourteen-year-old Leslie found himself having to leave school to work for Spratt's Patent Limited, a dog-food manufacturer, where he earned 25 shillings a week. He ended up designing the logo for the company, which is used to this day.
The stress of just barely surviving led the young man to take odd jobs in advertising in London's West End. By 21, he was on the staff of Lord and Thomas, "a small agency with big billings." The West End at that time was also a centre of gambling in London, however, and he began skipping out with Friends to place bets on fights and horse races. Not surprisingly, his work suffered.
"Creative juices find it hard to flow when there's a 5 o'clock deadline and you're worrying about which horse won the 4: 30," he wrote years later in his 1998 autobiography A Thousand and One First Nights. "I began to wonder how much longer I would be able to keep from my employers what I could no longer hide from myself: That I was horribly close to becoming an addicted gambler."
He got a hold of himself and quit gambling. To deal with the withdrawal symptoms, he revisited an old hobby and began attending drama classes. It wasn't the first time. At 10, he had played a rabbit in a local Swindon production of The Arcadians. "I immediately fell in love with the leading lady, who was all of 25 and quite irresistible with her dainty pillbox hat perched atop her jet black Eton crop," he recalled in his book. "When the cast picture came out, I put an X just above the pillbox and slept with it under my pillow for weeks."
Meanwhile, in London, Mr. YEO went from being an extra for amateur theatre companies to playing leading roles in larger stage productions. But the Second World War forced the government to close all theatres for a time and in 1940 he enlisted in the Royal Air Force as a wireless operator who, because of colour blindness (he could not distinguish red, green or brown), was assigned to ground stations.
He sent and received Morse code messages for five years. When peace was declared, he reunited with his first love of drama in London. And with the ring of a telephone, his life changed completely.
John Gabriel, a resident director at the Birmingham Alexandra Theatre, where Mr. YEO often acted, called to ask if he would like to join his company going to Newfoundland. "I didn't like to tell him I hadn't the faintest idea where Newfoundland was&hellip I said 'Yes, of course,' and I hared round to the local reference library for an atlas."
The theatre company hit hard times, however, and, having already experienced difficult financial times, Mr. YEO knew better than to stay with an outfit that was fast losing money. Soon after arriving in Saint_John's in 1951, he started up his own London Theatre Company in Saint_John's, where he profitably churned out 26 stage plays in 26 weeks and launched the careers of dozens of Canadian actors.
But even with the success that he saw, he never lost his ability to see a real bargain. On a trip back to West End London, Mr. YEO happened to walk by an old theatre that was throwing out its seats and replacing them with new ones. His friend Laurie Freeman said he immediately had the weathered chairs shipped back to Newfoundland.
Installed in the London Theatre, the seats served for six seasons, worn down by full house after full house. In all, he presented 107 different productions -- 39 of them in period costumes -- each with a full stage set and every one of them mounted within a week. The playbill included six major classics including two Shakespeare productions, six musical revues and five full-length British pantomimes.
But in 1957, anticipating the effect of television on live theatre audiences, Mr. YEO gathered up his courage, disbanded the company, and moved to Toronto with his wife, stage actress Hilary VERNON, and son Jamie.
He soon found work at the Stratford Festival, by then in its fourth season, and over the years acted in dozens of stage plays in such roles as Toby Belch in Twelfth Night and the Earl of Warwick in Saint Joan.
In 1979, Mr. YEO became artistic director of the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, where he performed in many productions. More importantly, Laurie FREEMAN recalled, he "brought it out of the red and into the black in one season." There, he also directed The Corn is Green and The Importance of Being Earnest.
He was also known on television and in the movies. He appeared in The Twilight Zone (1988) as Doctor Eugene Murrich; The Littlest Hobo (1983) as Mayor Oliver Cruickshank; Street Legal (1988-1993) as both the president and Judge Bodner; and in Bye Bye Blues (1989) as Kate Reid's husband. Among his most recent roles was an episode of Cold Squad in 1998.
But his all-time favourite role was that of Elwood Dowd in Harvey, an alcoholic who drifted through life accompanied by a six-foot-tall invisible white rabbit named Harvey. Nobody ever saw Harvey except Elwood, who always asked for two chairs at restaurants and ordered two of everything. The role was also a favourite of actor James Stewart, who made a movie version in 1950.
Mr. YEO so identified with the part that when he overheard that Christopher Newton, then creative director at the Vancouver Playhouse, planned to switch the final play of the company's season to Harvey, "I felt that somebody had stuck a dagger into me. I spun him round quite fiercely and told him that he couldn't possibly do Harvey without me."
Of course, Mr. YEO found a way to make it back to Vancouver seven months later for the run.
Although he never achieved the status of playing leading roles in major Canadian productions, the legacy Mr. YEO left is of a different kind. His son Jamie, 50, recalls a man who cared about the lives and finances of other actors. They were underpaid and overworked. Mr. YEO spent years helping to found the Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists Fraternal Benefit Society, now guaranteeing retirement benefits and medical insurance for more than 21,000 performers across the country.
His supportive nature extended far beyond the acting realm. "I remember the phone ringing off the hook at home," Jamie recalled. "He would get phone calls from people just wanting to talk about things going on in their life."
It wasn't unusual for Mr. YEO to drop whatever he was doing and go and meet with that friend or relative to hear them out. "He's bailed Friends out from jail -- including my Friends who didn't want to call their own parents. Or he would go and help someone fix something in their basement."
Leslie YEO always knew how to enjoy a good laugh, good company, and good scotch. As Elwood Dowd, his favourite character, once said: "I always have a wonderful time, wherever I am, whoever I'm with."
Leslie James YEO was born in Swindon, Wiltshire, England, on May 29, 1915. He died of brain cancer on September 14, 2006, in Toronto. He was 91. He leaves his James and his second wife Grete. His first wife, Hilary VERNON, died of cancer in 1973.

Cully SCHMIDT, Newpaperman: (1911-2006)
Newspaper boy who favoured pool rooms over classrooms rose to become the no-nonsense editor-in-chief of the Kitchener Record
By Unnati GANDHI with files from the Kitchener-Waterloo Record, Page S9
Toronto -- Day in and day out in the 1920s, Cully SCHMIDT would collect his bundle of Record newspapers from a dark, narrow alley off King Street in Kitchener, Ontario, and begin a two-hour newspaper route through the city's northwest suburbs to deliver his allotted 110 copies before dawn. He was about 13 years old; he would become editor-in-chief by the time he was 56.
School had not been much use to young Cully. After getting caught skipping class to play pool, he had taken his principal's advice to try for a permanent job at the newspaper. By all accounts, the man had a point. Young Cully did not seem to be interested in studying and, instead, he preferred to fill glue pots or lay out sheets of heavy paper used to wrap editions for rural delivery. From time to time, he even fielded readers' calls on hockey night, updating them on how the local teams were doing.
It was in this way that he was taken on as a cub reporter to launch a journalism career that spanned half a century. Over the years, he cultivated a reputation as a stern, old-fashioned and no-nonsense editor.
"He could be very gruff. He was non-communicative. He was one of those tough old newsmen of bygone eras," said J. Fred KUNTZ, publisher of The Record, which went through several name variations, including the Kitchener-Waterloo Record, until about a decade ago. But then again, Mr. KUNTZ only met the man as "a sweet old man" in the twilight of his life. "I never had the joy of working with Cully, or the terror, as the case may be."
Reporters who worked with him remember a man who would leave a simple note reading "See me. CBS," propped up on their typewriter keys.
"He would never just say to you, 'Come and see me in my office.' He was a man of very little words," said Carol JANKOWSKI, who arrived as a reporter at The Record in 1972 and is now editor of a local lifestyle magazine. On the whole, his staffs never knew if the reasons for his summons were good or bad.
"But he always had a good point to make," she said. "And then he would say, 'That's it. Get back to work.' "
Sporting a brush cut that looked fresh every day, Mr. SCHMIDT always arrived at work wearing a bow tie. At one point, ties were made mandatory. Photo editor Brian CLARK remembers one young reporter coming dressed in a turtleneck. "He was promptly reminded that a tie was required and sent home to change. For someone in his early 20s, all I thought was 'Wow, what an old fogey.'"
A newspaper man to the core, Mr. SCHMIDT exhibited outright hostility for the new medium of television. When CKCO, the local television station, went on air in the 1960s, Mr. SCHMIDT disapproved that some of his better-known writers appeared on air and prohibited Record staff from entering the studios.
By 1968, Mr. SCHMIDT went from being managing editor to editor-in-chief, a position he held until his retirement in 1975. During that time, he helped make The Record into one of the best in Ontario, recalls Brian CLARK, who started at The Record while Mr. SCHMIDT was editor-in-chief. For one thing, he regularly put in very long hours. "[It was] the best part of his waking hours, being engaged in the daily news," Mr. KUNTZ said.
The result was excellence among regional newspapers. "He set a standard that The Record was almost larger than it really was, given its circulation," says Mr. CLARK. "He really gave it a reputation that has stayed with it through the years."
The reason, perhaps, is that Mr. SCHMIDT never really retired. He continued to take great interest in the paper and would go through every story on every page, circle all the typos and grammar mistakes and send the marked-up articles to the publisher.
"He was on a constant mission for accuracy," recalls Mr. KUNTZ. "This was a guy who lived, breathed and ate the newsroom. It was his life."
Last year, Mr. SCHMIDT attended the opening of The Record's new building. On a tour of the newsroom with Mr. KUNTZ, he suddenly stopped to look at a black-and-white photograph from the 1960s that showed several men in white shirts sitting around a table editing copy. "He pointed to each one and remembered every single person as if it was yesterday," Mr. KUNTZ said. "But it wasn't just that he could recall it all, it was the fondness like he was living it right at that moment."
Carl B. SCHMIDT was born in Kitchener, Ontario, on March 9, 1911. He died on September 21, 2006, after suffering a stroke. He is predeceased by his wife Margaret and survived by his children, John and Margaret.

Second boy who fell in pond dies
By Unnati GANDHI, Page A7
Toronto -- A 15-year-old boy who fell through a sheet of thin ice into a Scarborough pond with a friend last week died yesterday.
Kishoban ALAKESWARAN spent a week in critical condition at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children before he was removed from life support yesterday.
"Although the doctor said there was no hope of him surviving his oxygen levels weren't going very well -- we all had hope, and his mom had faith that God would bring her son home," said Kishoban's cousin, Nithja VARATHARAJAN, 18, last night.
Kishoban had been on his way to a soccer game with Friends when they came across the pond on the unusually warm winter's day. The Friends tested the strength of the ice by throwing increasingly larger rocks onto its surface. Even though some went through, Kishoban was adamant to try to walk across, Friends said.
When he crashed through the ice, his 11-year-old friend, Birunthan NADARAJAH, tried to rescue him but the ice gave way and Birunthan died. Kishoban's family has said they will be nominating Birunthan for a bravery medal.
The Grade 10 Woburn Collegiate Institute student was known for his exceptionally high marks in school, especially in math and computers.
"His intelligence really made the family proud," Ms. VARATHARAJAN said. His body can be viewed on Wednesday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Ogden Funeral Home at 4164 Sheppard Avenue East. Cremation will be held on Thursday.

Man killed after 'minor' argument at restaurant
Family's wish to spend Christmas together dashed as son shot by waiting gunman
By Unnati GANDHI, Page A21
Ivy BATISSE wished with all her heart yesterday that she could hold in her hands one of the "magic potions" her son used to make for her when she was feeling sad.
The concoctions of shampoo, cologne and whatever else the then-elementary school pupil could obtain were what the single mother's mind kept straying to after hearing that her son Jesse had been gunned down and killed on Christmas Eve.
"He would make different mixtures, put it all in a bottle, shake it up, and Scotch tape it together," the 44-year-old told The Globe and Mail yesterday. "He'd say they were mom potions, love potions, whatever it took to cheer me up."
Instead, Ms. BATISSE held in her hands the paperwork identifying her son's body at the coroner's office on Sunday.
"All I wanted was to see my baby on Christmas and I can't. I just wanted to see him. I just …," she said yesterday, breaking off into heavy sobs and lashing out at the "street code that these young people have today."
Mr. BATISSE, 23, had been out with Friends at Tasty's Restaurant in his old Parkdale neighbourhood Saturday night when he got into what police called a "minor" argument with one of his long-time childhood Friends.
"That altercation resulted in the suspect leaving the bar, arming himself with a handgun and laying in wait for the deceased to exit the bar," Detective Wayne FOWLER of the Toronto police homicide squad said yesterday.
Police said the suspect opened fire about 1 a.m. Sunday. Mr. BATISSE was shot several times in the chest and collapsed at Dufferin Street and King Street West. He died five hours later in hospital.
One of his Friends was struck in the arm by a stray bullet but managed to get to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Police issued an arrest warrant for 20-year-old Thomas Lawrence DOUCETTE of Toronto on a charge of first-degree murder. They consider him armed and dangerous.
"If he's willing to take it upon himself to go to this extent to arm himself and discharge a number of rounds at the deceased who was with a number of people -- obviously he can be volatile and take matters to the extreme," Det. FOWLER said.
Mr. DOUCETTE is described as white, 5 foot 8, 154 pounds, with short brown hair, hazel eyes and a tattoo on the back of his neck. He was last seen wearing all black clothing.
Mr. BATISSE and his family lived in the Parkdale area for most of his life. He often went back to the neighbourhood, where he had many Friends, including the suspect, police said.
His girlfriend, Amber LAROCQUE, 20, witnessed the incident and said she could not believe anyone could shoot her boyfriend because he had "the biggest heart in the world."
Mr. BATISSE and Ms. LAROCQUE were planning on moving into their own apartment in January, when he was to begin a part-time construction job.
"We had saved up for rent and were even thinking of starting up our own family. Jesse wanted to own a house by the time he was 25."
At the family home at Jane Street and St. Clair Avenue West, Ms. BATISSE said she knew the suspect. "This young person used to stay at my house. I used to give him food. I used to give him shelter. I remember this one time his family was having a hard time, he stayed in my basement because Jesse asked me if he could stay there."
Mr. BATISSE, who was half Ojibwa from the Matachewan First Nation about 50 kilometres west of Kirkland Lake, Ontario, was beginning to turn his life around after struggling with a life of crime, said his sister, Jennifer, 20.
He was going to return to school in January to get his high-school diploma and had applied to a youth-counselling program at George Brown College.
"He went through some tough times," she said. "So he just wanted to guide younger kids, to show them where they should go in life, and how not to go down the same route he went down."
The whole family -- Ms. BATISSE, her two sons and three daughters had been planning to celebrate their first Christmas together "in a long time," Jennifer said. They were going to decorate their tree and have a family dinner on Sunday.

ROBILLARD, Line (1943-2006)
Peacefully at the Griffith McConnell Home in Montreal on October 25th after a courageous battle with cancer. Daughter of the late Claude and late Denyse (GUIMONT) ROBILLARD, dear step-daughter of Thérèse ROBILLARD, and dearest sister of Claude, Marie, Andrée (Eric Lefebvre GANNE,) Jean (Paule LÉVESQUE) and Phillippe, loved aunt of ten nephews and nieces and loving companion of Stephen KINSMAN. After graduating in Economics and Political Science from McGill University, Line took a further political science course at La Sorbonne. She worked for Cyrus Sulzberger of The New York Times in Paris and pursued a Cordon Bleu cooking course at the same time. Between 1971 and 1981, she worked with the U.S. Department of State as a political analyst, Consul to Oran (Algeria), and was subsequently program director at the U.S. National Commission for United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. From 1981 to 1987 she was special project consultant for the Royal Commission on the Canadian Economy ('The MacDonald Commission') and the Canadian Minister of Health and Welfare. Between 1989 and 1994, she was Executive Director of the Young Women's Christian Association in Montreal. From 1994 until 2003, she was Executive Director of the World Federation of Hemophilia. Line became the friend and counselor to many people at and associated with World Federation of Hemophilia in many countries in the world and her impeccable fluency in English, French, and Spanish was a great asset. From May, 2003 to late 2005, she helped establish a patient-based, not-for-profit organization in the U.S., The National Alliance for Thrombosis and Thrombophilia, as its Executive Director. Line enjoyed working her showpiece garden at her country house near Mansonville. She had a completely catholic taste in music, was fascinated by astronomy and exploits in outer and inner space. Line will be remembered for her great intelligence, certainly, but also for her compassion and quiet - but sometimes outrageous - sense of humour. Line was without doubt the Renaissance Woman. Family and Friends, worldwide, will miss her. We wish to thank the Griffith McConnell Home, the Montreal Neurological Hospital and the centre local de services communautaires Métro for all their help not only to Line, but to us as well. There will be a memorial service for Line at 11: 00 a.m. Saturday, November 4, at the Outremont Chapel of the Mount Royal Funeral Complex. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Griffith McConnell Home or the Montreal Neurological Hospital would be appreciated.
