HELBIG, Marian
Mom left the stage suddenly on Tuesday, October 31, 2006 in the middle of a brilliant set. She was a singer, model, mother, grandmother extraordinaire, and passionate friend who leaves a devastating hole in our lives. We will miss her sense of humour, her style, her beauty and grace, and most of all her incredible warmth and devotion to her family. Mom would want us to remember her long years of cottage freeloading, berry picking and freestyle swimming, globetrotting with kindred spirits, and many nights of jazz to which she brought her inimitable zest and insouciance. We also remember the talented dressmaker, fabulous cook, and hostess who made each legendary Christmas party a destination. We will terribly miss watching the Leafs, doing crosswords and wonderful conversation with this proud Canadian and protoenvironmentalist. She survived in the face of lupus for over 45 years, and taught us to aspire to her noble example. We'll make certain her memory stays alive and bright in her grandchildren's lives. Marian will be deeply missed by her children Karla RODGERS, Avril HELBIG (and spouse Mike HANSEN,) Jason HELBIG and wife Cathy) and grandchildren Michelle, Sadie, Wilder, Greer and Bridget. She is also mourned by her extended family William McCULLOCK, Loretta McCULLOCK, Valida RAHAL, Walter McCULLOCK, Willa LEJOUR, Christina FINNEY and their families. She was predeceased by her loving husband Herbert HELBIG. Visitation at the Morley Bedford Funeral Home, 159 Eglinton Avenue West (2 stoplights west of Yonge Street), on Sunday, November 5, 2006 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. The funeral service will be held at St. Peter's Anglican Church, 188 Carlton Street (between Jarvis and Parliament Streets), on Monday, November 6, 2006 at 11 a.m. A reception will follow at Marian's residence after the service. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Marian Helbig Memorial Trust in support of an emerging Canadian jazz talent (www.marianhelbig.com). 'I'm walking on eggs, I'm walking on jelly legs…'

Murray LISTER, Royal Canadian Air Force Air Vice-Marshal (1912-2006)
In 1966 he was rising to the top of his cherished Royal Canadian Air Force when he resigned to protest against Ottawa's plan to unify the military and outfit Canada's Armed Forces in lamentable green serge
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to the Globe and Mail, Page S8
Ottawa -- Murray LISTER was a man of integrity. In 1966, as an Royal Canadian Air Force air vice-marshal in charge of Air Defence Command, he quit rather than stand by and watch Paul HELLYER unify Canada's armed services. Defying the minister of national defence in 1966 came at a very high price for Mr. LISTER, whose responsibility is was to defend Canada against aerial attack by the Soviet Union. Unlike hundreds of other senior officers, he deliberately refused to follow Mr. HELLYER's dictatorial party line and lost his promotion to air marshal, at that time a rank equivalent to an army lieutenant-general.
Mr. LISTER's decision took many by surprise, since he was fifth from the top of the Royal Canadian Air Force's seniority list, but he never regretted following his conscience at such a great personal cost, his son, Murray, said. "He was a man of principle and the main principle he followed was duty. He declined promotion and accepted early retirement on the principle of duty toward the traditions and morale of the air force."
The trouble had started after he made his feelings known. He believed that while the traditions of the Royal Canadian Navy and the army were important, those of the Royal Canadian Air Force were unique. "He didn't want any service tradition to be diluted," his son said. "He felt that the effectiveness of each of the three services was built on morale. There was no point in destroying this morale."
One day in mid-March of 1966, during the height of the unification crisis that gripped Parliament and the country, Mr. LISTER was summoned to Ottawa and found himself on the carpet. Air Chief Marshal Frank MILLER, the chief of the defence staff, accused him of criticizing unification in speeches to subordinates.
Fortunately, Mr. LISTER's aide, retired squadron leader Robert FLYNN, had taken notes on what his boss had actually said. "While he did not 100-per-cent support the concept, he impressed those over whom he had command that it was his and their duty to respect and honour the political directives. It was a very uneasy and stressful time for him, but he weathered the storm," Mr. FLYNN said.
Mr. HELLYER's ambitious drive to create one service from the navy, army and air force, unveiled in 1964 in a government white paper, created enormous controversy. Mr. HELLYER insisted his dual plan of integration and unification would save millions of dollars that would be better spent on new equipment, but many saw it as a direct attack on the military's cherished, British-based traditions. Thousands of sailors, soldiers and airmen were appalled that Mr. HELLYER wanted to scrap their traditional uniforms of navy blue and army khaki and replace them with a common green serge. Sailors and airmen would wear army ranks on their sleeves.
Mr. LISTER was a strong supporter of integration, which sought to eliminate costly triplication such as separate personnel and supply systems. If he'd decided to put his career before his principles, there's no telling how high he might have risen, since Mr. HELLYER desperately needed senior officers to toe his party line and take over from those who decided to resign.
Mr. LISTER, known as a strict disciplinarian, had a strong streak of stubbornness, his son said. "His sense of duty came from his mother, who was very strict herself and brought him up that way. He had enormous willpower. He used logic in arguing and was quite an intellectual. He was a super-achiever."
Tragically, the stress of coping with unification may have affected Mr. LISTER's first marriage to Janet RICHMOND, their daughter Sydney said. Her parents were divorced in 1971 after 32 years of marriage. Still, there was plenty of hope and happiness at the beginning, she said. "My dad always told us how much fun she was, how talented she was… It was a love story."
After graduating from the Royal Military College of Canada in 1935, Mr. LISTER flew fighters with the Royal Canadian Air Force. He and his bride of four months happened to be in England when war broke out on September 1, 1939. Naturally, he thought he'd soon be flying against the German Luftwaffe, but brass had a better appreciation of his talents.
A week later, he was recalled to Canada and put to work organizing all bombing and gunnery training facilities for the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan. Dubbed the "Aerodrome of Democracy," Canada built an enormous network of training bases that, over the next five years, trained 131,500 aircrew from the British Commonwealth and Allied nations. Overall, the Royal Canadian Air Force grew dramatically to 215,000 men and women and 88 squadrons.
Promoted to group captain in 1943 at the early age of 31, Mr. LISTER tried to get overseas to fly on operations but never made it, his son said. "He was too valuable. That bothered him to the end of his life, [since] his first love was flying."
The closest he came to going operational was to command Station Tofino, British Columbia, an air base that flew long-distance anti-submarine patrols far into the Pacific. His 1944-45 posting earned him a mention in dispatches: "By his ability and outstanding devotion to duty he has raised the standard of this unit to a high pitch of operational efficiency."
After the war, Mr. LISTER filled four key positions as the Royal Canadian Air Force expanded dramatically to 52,000 men and women. In 1954, he was appointed chief of plans and intelligence. In 1958, he was appointed deputy vice-chief of the Royal Canadian Air Force and chief of training, a job that gave him and his wife Janet -- known as a gracious hostess -- a high profile on Ottawa's diplomatic cocktail circuit.
In 1960, Mr. LISTER went to Colorado Springs where he spent four years at North American Air Defence Command as deputy chief of staff, operations. Mr. LISTER played a key part in organizing North American Air Defence Command, an agency set up to protect North America from air attack. He had a first-hand view of the Cuban missile crisis that brought the United States and the Soviet Union to the brink of nuclear war in 1962.
Jaye LISTER, then 14, still remembers the worries she experienced when her father didn't come home for four days. It was the height of the Cold War and nuclear conflict seemed a horrible possibility for millions. "We had a red phone in the master bedroom, a direct line to North American Air Defence Command headquarters. One morning I asked mum where Dad was. Her reply was, 'I don't know. The red phone rang and your father left. I don't know when we'll see him.' We had no contact with him at all."
In 1964, Mr. LISTER took command of Air Defence Command, which included squadrons of CF-100 and CF-101 fighters. Mr. FLYNN remembers his boss as "a very demanding person yet very patient and understanding. He had a great sense of humour yet was a no-nonsense type. When toughness was demanded he could dish it out, but always in a human and respectful manner. [He] treated me, as he did everyone, with human understanding."
After retiring from the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1966, Mr. LISTER became a gentlemen farmer, growing apples and wheat and raising sheep and cattle on a farm near Picton, Ontario In 1997, more than 50 years after he had last flown an aircraft, Mr. LISTER took to the sky one last time as a pilot. Although by then blind in one eye, he made a "beautiful flight," an observer said.
"[It's] exactly like riding a bicycle," Mr. LISTER said at the time. "You never forget. Everything felt very natural. It was tremendously exciting."
Murray Duncan LISTER was born on January 17, 1912, in Edmonton.
He died of pneumonia on January 7, 2006, in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario He was 10 days short of his 94th birthday. He leaves his wife Elizabeth DAILLEY, son Murray, and daughters Sydney and Jaye. He also leaves stepdaughters Elizabeth and Lynne.

CAVE, Richard " Dick," P.Eng. (August 29, 1943-February 26, 2006)
son of Frank and Hilda (née HOWE) CAVE
Peacefully, at La Farm in Duncan, Ontario and surrounded by his loving family and Friends, both at home and abroad, both with us and in heaven, our amazing husband, dad, guardian angel, grand-dad, uncle, cherished friend and valued colleague, passed graciously into a space filled with beauty, light, energy and peace for safekeeping, until we are all reunited. He leaves his adoring wife, Sally LEPPARD, partner of 18 years. By his side, throughout his 4 year battle with cancer, and for always, are his treasured and adored children - Emma (and Brian), Steve (and Kerry), Kate (and Kris,) Liz NIELD (née McHARDY, and Jim,) Louise (and Chris,) Jamie McHARDY, and his precious and beloved granddaughter, Sarah Grace. His sister Sue and husband Dave WHITEHEAD came from Cornwall, England to be by his side. He will always be loved by his special extended family - Sue CORKE, Jenny, Joel and Gabrielle HELMAN, Dave LEPPARD, Luce KENNEDY, Helen, Paul and Daniel RUSSELL, Jeremy and Amanda, Katie, Simon, Guy and Heidi, Miranda and Toby, Bob and Joan, Shylah and Austin, Sylvie, Bernhard and Baby Yannick, Mark, Barbara, Julian and Clee (and children), and beloved parents-in-law John and Jocey LEPPARD, and all of our children's dearest Friends ("the Urban Terrorists"). Dick's humour, wit, tall tales and strength of character will be sadly missed by his many great Friends. Throughout his last few weeks, you have helped us enormously with snow plowing, dishwashing, great food and wine, books, fine company, paintings, fun and laughter, and gifts of love and kindness too numerous to mention. Dick had a career full of achievements and 'firsts'. After emigrating from Derby, England as a Civil Engineer in 1969, he worked with Kilbourn Engineering until 1984 when he founded the Ontario-based R. Cave and Associates Engineering Inc. There he nurtured a tradition of creative, pragmatic and holistic engineering solutions to Canada's waste management and ecological problems. He finished his career with Trow Consulting in Brampton. Our family's grateful thanks go to those who cared for Dick in his last stage of life - the Collingwood General & Marine Hospital, the Owen Sound Community Care Access Centre home care team and nurses Lorraine, Royanne, Sue and Laurie, and "spa lady" Sharon, Dr. and Mrs. Tony ROWLINSON, Joyce STRAITON, Dr. Jennifer KNOX and Bettina of Princess Margaret Hospital, and Dr. Marwan FAKIH of Roswell Park Cancer Institute. Your safety net was invaluable and gave us enormous hope over the last year and kindness and caring in the last few weeks. Dick is in our hearts, spirits, souls and minds, and his huge presence will be forever with us. "the candle burned out long before the legend ever did" -- E.J.A. memorial to Dick will be held at Bethany Church of the Nazarene, Trowbridge Street West in Meaford, Ontario on Monday, March 6, 2006 at 1: 30 p.m. As your expression of sympathy, donations to the Georgian Triangle Hospice would be appreciated and may be made through the Ferguson Funeral Home, 48 Boucher St. E., Meaford N4L 1B9 (519-538-1320) to whom arrangements have been entrusted.
