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."

Joan was the cherished daughter of the late Marshall and Dorothy (LEE) DONALDSON of Toronto; dearly loved by her sister Lynne Margaret, brother-in-law Eric HANCOCK and niece Chris and by Jeffrey and Daryl GELGOOT and their families.

BAIRD, Ann Kelso (née GELLATLY)
(April 25, 1915-February 6, 2006)
It is with great sadness we, her two sons, announce the passing of our loving mother. Ann Kelso BAIRD (née GELLATLY,) R.N., 90, of Alloa, Grangemounth, Dunfermline, Edinburgh, Enfield, London, Bournemouth, Halifax, Toronto, Guelph, Hamilton, Winnipeg, Kenora, Ajijic, Denman Island, and Comox passed away peacefully in her sleep at 4: 50 a.m. on February 6, 2006 at Eagleview Extended Care in Comox, British Columbia. Beloved wife of Major William Chisholm and loving mother to John Cameron of New York and Roger David of Denman Island and grandmother of Renardo Narita, Naima Maya and Charlotte Logan SYTNYK, great-grandmother of Sarah Eileen SYTNYK and Shelby Katherine SYTNYK and devoted mother-in-law of Sharon-Amber and Miho Narita. Born in Alloa on April 25, 1915, the eldest child of Provost John GELLATLY and Anne GELLATLY, she graduated Dollar Academy and pursued a nursing career in Scotland. With the advent of World War 2 she moved to London where she continued nursing, studied public health at London University, and when the War resulted in a demand for available physicians, she contributed to the war effort by delivering babies as a midwife. Ann was married on August 29, 1943 in Middlesex, England and later, in anticipation of D-day, moved with her husband and his regiment to Bournemouth where they had their first child. Shortly after D-day she moved to London where she resided with her son until several months after V-E day when they made the crossing by ship to Halifax (presaging the 50,000 war brides and 22,000 children that were to arrive through Pier 21) where they stayed with William's relatives Don and Marjorie BARTEAUX while awaiting William's return to Canada. Ann was active in the arts and served over 30 years as a volunteer with the Winnipeg Art Gallery and was an active participant in the Gallery's study group. Several times she won the group's annual prize for making a food dish that closely approximated a known work of art. With her husband she enjoyed visiting her sons in Manhattan where they celebrated many New Years together at the Metropolitan Club. Ann was a member of the Lake Chapala Society in Ajijic and with her husband, belonged to the Winnipeg Winter Club and Niakwa Country Club. Ann will be sadly missed by her family and extended family including Roger and Jacquie JAMES, Helen and Jock McLENNAN, and Mary RUECKERT, and her many Friends. She enjoyed helping people and her personal concern and desire to help will live on in those she touched. Ann's husband, William, predeceased her on October 27, 1999. She is survived by her brothers John W. Stewart H., and Cyril James, and a sister Jean SCHAEFER. In lieu of flowers, the family would welcome donations to the Riverview Health Center, or to the Winnipeg Humane Society in her memory. Mother, we love you, miss you, and think you were terrific. May you rest in peace. Arrangements by: Comox Valley Funeral Home, 1101 Ryan Rd., Courtenay, British Columbia, V9N 3R6, Phone 250-334-0707. A service to celebrate her life will be held in Winnipeg on Tuesday, April 25 (her 91st birthday) at the Winnipeg Winter Club, 200 River Avenue, at 2: 30 p.m.
