VLACH remembered for spirit, courage
By Jane SIMS, Free Press Reporter, Mon., April 24, 2006
VLACH: The Central secondary grad and athlete died Saturday at age 19 of cancer.
In his short, extraordinary life, Alex VLACH taught everyone around him about living life with dignity. With determination. With grace.
Cancer was his only enemy. In the end, even VLACH's unequalled drive to win was no match for the deadly disease.
VLACH, a Central secondary school graduate and athlete who inspired his school to reach out to others, died on Saturday at age 19.
He leaves behind a community of family and Friends in awe of his courageous journey and his unbreakable spirit despite the odds.
"He's a hero to a lot of people," said teacher and football coach John VOUVALIDIS.
"He showed us all what amazing things can be accomplished with strength of spirit and hope," said teacher Martine Bracey HOFFMAN.
In Grade 10, VLACH lost his mom to cancer. Within a year, he was diagnosed with a rare abdominal form of the disease.
When he was 16, after 42 chemotherapy treatments and 12 radiation treatments, he found an insight into his struggle.
"There are more important things in life than school or money or work," he said. "Family and Friends mean a lot."
He was a gym rat who tried to shoot baskets every day during his treatments, said teacher Sharon Young KIPP. He wasn't allowed to dress for football, but he still came to practice. He dressed for the last game of the year.
"He was so strong about it," VOUVALIDIS said. "He had this never-give-up attitude."
The cancer went into remission and stayed away for almost two years.
"I've always said my mom gave it to me so I could beat it," he said at a Central football game.
"You have to be strong. Never once did I say I was going to die. All through this, I just kept thinking about how I was going to play football and basketball again."
He had won his first battle against cancer and didn't lose his drive to raise awareness.
"I was lucky. I got to share his dream and help him make it work," Kipp YOUNG said.
Last year, VLACH took on a fundraising drive at the school, selling Lance Armstrong bracelets and breast cancer bracelets.
He also helped to raise $10,000 for the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
A year ago, he received an Ernie McTavish Award given London high school students who have overcome great odds.
He was accepted to Western's Kings University College and worked at Camp Trillium for kids with cancer, for the summer.
But he began to feel ill. In August, he was told the cancer was back. His diagnosis was terminal.
In September, he said he found inspiration in Terry Fox and wanted his own life to be used to raise money for children.
"He just kept fighting -- never quit," said football coach Phil HARRIS.
An annual award has been named for VLACH.
The cancer campaign at the school this year was dedicated to him. Three weeks ago, VLACH was at the school for the last time for an assembly.
On Friday their Carnival of Hope aims to match the $10,000 raised last year.

HOFFMAN, Katherine Elizabeth " Liz" (née NUTTER)
Liz passed away peacefully at her home with great courage and dignity from malignant melanoma on January 27, 2006. To deeply mourn her passing, so thankful for her life, are her loving family, her beloved daughter Andrea HOFFMAN (Matt TORMEY,) her mother Audrey NUTTER, brother John NUTTER, sister Patricia (Bob) JAMIESON, Auntie Bobbie and Uncle Dave GRANT and family, Barry HOFFMAN and the HOFFMAN and Potter families. She was predeceased by her father Philip NUTTER. To all of Liz's Friends who loved her, you are her family as well and we know that you will miss her as deeply. Liz achieved a tremendous amount during her life. She is remembered for her determination to stand up for the rights of those without a voice, for her passion for books and making them accessible to everyone, for the pleasure she took in travel and her admiration of different cultures, and most fondly for her deep love and appreciation of family and Friends. Liz gave wholeheartedly to her Friends and always held them dear. She was so grateful for all of the love and support that she received over the past months - every call, every card, every flower and every prayer was deeply cherished and gave her added strength. Liz was born in Winnipeg in 1951, later moving to the Ottawa area with her family. She graduated with an Honours Degree in Public Administration from Carleton University in Ottawa and pursued further study on scholarship at the Syracuse University School of Public Administration, New York. Liz raised her family and spent most of her career in Toronto. She returned to Winnipeg in 2000. Liz's deeply rooted sense of fairness and social justice led to a career as ombudsperson with distinguished service at Carleton University, the University of Toronto, Ryerson Polytechnic University and the Ontario College of Art and Design. For the past five years she worked in Winnipeg as a Senior Investigator with the Office of the National Defence and Canadian Forces Ombudsman. She was a founding member and a past president of the Association of Canadian College and University Ombudspersons. She was also a founding member of The Forum of Canadian Ombudsman and remained actively involved as a member of the Board. The opportunity to volunteer with diverse groups and individuals in the community gave her great pleasure. For over twenty years Liz was committed to keeping the public library systems strong and maintaining public access to information while preserving individual privacy. She was past president of the Ontario Public Library Association and on behalf of this Association and the Ontario Ministry of Culture and Communications chaired the development of the Ontario Public Library Strategic Plan. She contributed as a committee chair to the development of Winnipeg's Millennium Library. She was a member of the Executive Committee of the Canadian Commission for United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization a member of the Board of Directors of the Canadian Network for the Advancement of Research, Industry and Education; a member of the Federal Government's National Community Access Programme Advisory Board; a member of the Federal Government's Information Highway Advisory Council; and founding chair of Canada's Coalition for Public Information. A special joy was in representing Canada as keynote speaker (National Information Policies: Canadian Approach) at the 49th International Federation for Information and Documentation Conference and Congress held in Jaipur and New Delhi, India. Liz's leadership, service and commitment toward the betterment of her local, provincial, national and global communities have been highly recognized. She was honoured with many awards from the organizations with which she worked. Commendations were received from both the Prime Minister and the Governor General of Canada. Liz believed in living each day to the fullest. She travelled extensively with her family throughout North and South America, Mexico, the Caribbean, Europe and Asia. She enjoyed diverse activities including book clubs, cultural festivals, cinema, theatre, live music and billiards. Most recently Liz's quiet time was spent at her dream retreat Skye Cottage, Victoria Beach. Our lives are richer for having known Liz. She touched and contributed to the lives of many. The family invites Friends to share in a remembrance and celebration of Liz's life at the Renaissance Hotels Northern Lights Ballroom in the Rogers Centre, Toronto on Saturday, February 11th at 1: 30 p.m. This is the site where Liz hosted the initial visionary meeting of the future Ontario Digital Library.

Star's Marlow NEWBY, 75, beloved boss
By Isabel TEOTONIO, Staff Reporter
Some called him Mr. Good Morning. Others called him Mr. Patience. But all agreed that Marlow NEWBY was a gentleman of the highest order.
NEWBY, a former circulation manager who dedicated 35 years to the Star, died Jan 26. after a brief battle with lung cancer. He was 75.
"He was such a gentleman to his staff -- he was Mr. Good Morning," recalled Rupert FRY, former executive director of circulation, who worked with NEWBY for about three decades.
"Each morning he'd go around the office and say, 'Good morning,' to everybody -- and that was a pretty good-sized floor, so it took some time," FRY chuckled at the memory. "But that was Marlow. He had a sense of caring for people and was a good friend to many."
His sentiments were echoed by Berrie FEENEY, who was NEWBY's secretary for 20 years. She, however, had a different moniker for her beloved boss. "He was Mr. Patience.
"He was a wonderful man, a great man and a great boss. All of us were fond of him," said FEENEY, calling him a "people person" who would greet everyone with a smile.
While NEWBY wasn't a jokester himself, he always loved a good joke and a funny story, recalled his second wife, Janet HOFFMAN, with whom he spent the last 22 years of his life. "He was a great audience. He had a wonderful laugh and he enjoyed other people…."
NEWBY was born in Cardston, a small town in southwestern Alberta. When he was a boy, his parents moved the family to nearby Lethbridge, where he later attended university.
Fresh out of school, NEWBY was hired by American News, a magazine distribution company based in the United States. He started out delivering magazines, but hard work and perseverance paid off and he quickly rose through the ranks to management.
NEWBY's work took him to the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, where he lived for a few years, and eventually landed him in Halifax, where he met his first wife, Dorothy.
After the company's collapse, the Star quickly scooped him up in 1957 to work in the circulation department, where he spent much of the next 35 years before retiring in 1992. He worked briefly in marketing, but returned to circulation, which was his true passion. It was there that he left his greatest mark.
"He was truly a professional," FRY recalled of NEWBY's days as circulation manager. "He spent a great deal of time researching other papers in North America, looking for better ways to do circulation distribution."
The result, he said, was NEWBY's introduction of new and innovative circulation sales programs during the 1980s, which helped boost circulation. And despite putting in long hours at work, he also found time to serve as president of the Canadian Circulation Management Association in 1984.
Besides HOFFMAN, NEWBY is survived by four children from his first marriage: John NEWBY, Chris NEWBY, JoAnne NEWBY and LeeAnne NEWBY, along with their partners and grandchildren.
