KAPASI o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2006-05-16 published
KAPASI, Malik Hassanali Gower
By Sarah GOWER and Peter GOWER, Page A20
Inspiration. Born June 7, 2004, in Ottawa. Died November 7, 2005, in Kingston, Ontario, of complications from leukemia (Acute Myeloblastic Leukemia), aged 17 months.
We welcomed Malik Hassanali Gower KAPASI on a Monday, a beautiful sunny late spring day in Ottawa. In the first part of his life he lived in several places before Bancroft, Ontario, as he followed his parents on their family-medicine locums. He was a well-experienced West Jet Cadet. At two months he liked floating in warm-water pools. He took his first canoe trip at four months. Six months found him out on Quebec ski trails, and watching a children's pageant in St. George's Cathedral, as he chewed on the altar rail. At 10 months he was delighted to watch a moose walk across the front lawn of the house.
The second part of his life started when he could not throw off a cold. He began Victoria Day in Bancroft, went on to Belleville, and came by ambulance to Kingston General Hospital. One week later, at 11½ months, he was diagnosed with leukemia (Acute Myeloblastic Leukemia). He rarely complained at the many procedures that were carried out on him. He loved to tell you where his eyes, nose and tummy were, but didn't like to tell you about his ears because someone might want to look in them. He happily crawled around with intravenous lines attached. He ignored the central line in his chest. He let everybody know where his shoes were, in the hope that they might take him out. He knew which of the four purple hippos was Mr. Hippo, and which were mere substitutes. Mr. Hippo now rests with him.
He was generous with his food. He would be overcome with excitement when one of his parents returned from work, and would start handing them food from his highchair tray in welcome. During quiet times with his tearful Mom, he would carefully choose his best grape or pea and offer it to her as a little cheer-up gift. Once, in his stroller, he spotted a cat and, much to its bemusement, he excitedly offered it his half-eaten baby carrot. He loved feeding the sparrows and the seagulls outside the hospital's pediatric wing.
He also became one of the best non-verbal communicators we have ever met. His emphatic "No, thanks" head shaking was just as clear as his happy "Yes, please!" full-body bouncing. Two big brown eyes would speak volumes of pleasure, concern or sleepiness. His trust was absolute, and as long as someone he loved was there to tell him all was okay, he believed, taking the next challenge in stride.
He taught us so much about dealing with adversity. When he felt tired, he cuddled quietly or slept. When he felt energetic, he crawled, and read books, and stacked things and explored with the exuberance of any toddler. He never felt sorry for himself, and in turn we could not feel sorry for ourselves. His days with us were true gifts.
We don't know what his aspirations were, nor his potential. He was loved by all of us who watched him fight and suffer and recover and try again and smile and giggle and hold up his arms in welcome. He drew together two families living on five continents, Sarah and Hassan's Friends and co-workers, neighbours, and the Kingston General Hospital skilled medical and support staff. He is missed by all, and by a Dalmatian who wonders why her favourite smell visits no more.
And at the end he lay in his hospital bed and listened through the evening as his parents spoke about his life. Then, on another Monday, just before midnight, our 17-month-old left us.
The next day we said goodbye to Malik, on a beautiful sunny fall afternoon in Kingston, with the sun setting, his sparrows singing and the geese flying south.
Sarah is Malik's mother; Peter is his grandfather.

KAPHALAKOS o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2006-10-28 published
BURK/BURKE, James (né KAPHALAKOS) (September 16, 1917-October 15, Writer - Editor - Novelist Longest-living Canadian Paraplegic
James BURK/BURKE would be the last to want his disability given any billing. Yet in the view of his considerable achievements it enhances his successful challenge of life. It is a mark of distinction. He was born in Toronto the son of Peter KAPHALAKOS (Peloponnesus, Greece) and Florence COCHRANE, Toronto. If heritage counts, he exhibited the strength and stoicism of a Spartan combined with the humour of the Irish. All his youth he excelled in academic standing, he was a voracious reader, lover of classic music, and a regular at the 'Y' (1939 Bronze Medal in the Jr. Ontario Championships). Later he took flying instructions out of the Toronto Island Airport. He was about to get his private license, when he was a passenger in an auto accident in 1940, before seat belts were in use. Rehabilitation or social programs for civilian paraplegics were nonexistent. He spent 7 years in hospitals permanently confined to a wheelchair. In an interview much later he said simply: 'I have a rather undistinguished past.' On release he pursued a career in freelance writing, book reviewing and editing for Canadian magazines, newspapers and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. He wrote everything from short stories to commercial copy. He edited the journal of the Canadian Paraplegic Association for some 8 years. In 1951 he married actress Laddie DENNIS. They honeymooned in Mexico. Throughout their marriage they took numerous car journeys sharing the driving in the U.S. and Canada. They moved to Scarborough in 1955 and rescued an unfinished renovation of a building on the historic site of the Falcon Inn. Doing the contracting himself, BURK/BURKE did such a good job it was written up by most of the Toronto papers. The 11-room house sits in a woods with a spring fed stream and terraced lawns. It has remained their home to this day. He published his first novel "Flee Seven Ways" in Great Britain (by Hutchinson with distribution in Canada), in the U.S. (Pantheon) and in a German translation (Rauch). It received high praise from top publications: The Times Literary Supplement, The Irish Times, Punch magazine, New Yorker magazine, Sunday New York Herald Tribune, etc. Robert Moses, President of The New York World's Fair 1964-65 wrote of his admiration, and long time friend Marshall McLuhan predicted 'It is a picaresque scenario that will be snapped up by an alert movie enterprise.' And so it was that the Burkes flew to London in 1963 where he wrote the movie script. Given the vagaries of filmdom it did not come to fruition. However, an unexpected contract with the British Broadcasting Corporation resulted in his writing a radio script of the classic "Diary Of A Madman" by Gogol. It was given repeated airings with film actor Kenneth Williams. In 1969 his second novel was published in Britain "The Firefly Hunt" (Collins). Again it was embraced by reviewers, especially in the British press, including a long one in The Times Literary Supplement. 'A sparkling Romancandle of a fantasy' - Argosy United Kingdom called it. He started a third novel but serious health problems diminished the long term energy needed for the project. In his last days he was cheered to hear that his novels are still selling on the Internet. He died in a Toronto hospital with his wife of 55-years holding his hand, following a ferocious 5-week battle. According to his wishes he was buried in The Scarborough Historical Society's Bethel Pioneer Cemetery in a private family ceremony on October 24. There will be a tree planting in the Spring to honour his remarkable life. He is survived by brothers Paul and Peter, a nephew Christopher, a niece Paula BASTONE and sisters-in-law Mary KAYE of Montreal and Mae KAPHALAKOS of Toronto. He was predeceased by his brothers Jack (3-weeks before at 93 years) of Montreal and George KAPHALAKOS (1988) of Toronto. 'Now Jim, you can really fly. May angels ride on your wings.' - Bill McVean

James BURK/BURKE, Writer And Editor: (1917-2006)
Paralyzed by an auto accident in 1942, he survived to become one of Canada's longest-surviving paraplegics
By Douglas McARTHUR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Toronto -- James BURK/BURKE was 22 and only weeks from getting a pilot's licence when an accident left him paralyzed. The year was 1940 and Toronto's health system was ill equipped to deal with civilian paraplegics. Hospital authorities basically told him to "pray and die," he said later.
He spent long years in institutions before the availability of the personal collapsible wheelchair -- combined with his own willpower -- helped him start a new life on the outside. He worked as a freelance writer and editor, married radio and stage personality Laddie DENNIS, and authored two comic novels in the 1960s. He was to spend more than six decades in a wheelchair and was one of Canada's longest-surviving paraplegics.
"He never allowed himself to be shackled by remorse," says William GEISLER, one of the doctors who helped with his rehabilitation. "He didn't ruminate on what had been. He knew those emotions would sap him of the energy he required." Friends say he avoided talking about his handicap, had a strong sense of humour and was always willing to help others.
For a number of years, Mr. BURK/BURKE edited the Caliper, the journal of the Canadian Paraplegic Association. He also wrote Return to Action, a history of treatment programs for spinal-cord patients. But he never mentioned disabilities in his other writings, which included a physical fitness course, short stories, book reviews for The Globe and Mail and two novels.
Flee Seven Ways (1964) is the rollicking tale of a corrupt businessman. It was published in Britain, the U.S. and Germany to favourable reviews. "A very funny first novel," wrote The New York Times. The paper's Literary Supplement noted: "His novel is a complex construction, bravely undertaken and creditably carried out."
In The Firefly Hunt (1969), mischief and mayhem bedevil the hero after he inherits a castle from an eccentric uncle. Argosy magazine called it "a sparkling Roman-candle of a fantasy." Mr. BURK/BURKE drafted a third novel, but health problems halted completion.
Christened James KAPHALAKOS, he changed his last name to BURK/BURKE as a young man. He was the second of five sons of Panogiotis (Peter) KAPHALAKOS, a Greek immigrant who operated a Toronto coffee business, and his wife, Florence (née COCHRANE.) Young James excelled at school and in athletics but, because of his father's death in 1930, he abandoned his studies. To support his family, he graduated from high school and then went looking for whatever work he could find.
An avid weightlifter with a striking physique, he earned some income as a live model at the Ontario College of Art. But his main job in 1940 was on the bull gang at a paper mill. He was also taking flying lessons at the Toronto Island airport, but only when he had some extra money. That all changed when the car in which he was a passenger was involved in an accident. The impact broke his back and left him paralyzed from the mid-back down.
At the time, life expectancy for paraplegics was considered low. As a result, Mr. BURK/BURKE was given little more than food, a bed to lie in and drugs to fight off infection. In all, he spent seven years at a succession of Toronto hospitals. Later, he said he only talked about those missing years "to counter the canard" that he had spent them in jail.
He gave details of his dreary hospital years in lengthy interviews conducted in the early 1990s by Mary TREMBLAY, an associate professor of health sciences at McMaster University. She used his experiences in a series of academic papers on the evolution of Canada's treatment of spinal-cord injuries.
At Saint Michael's Hospital, nuns asked Mr. BURK/BURKE to accept his fate and make peace with God. "I somehow didn't feel like taking on the chore of dying at that moment," he told Ms. TREMBLAY. The Queen Elizabeth Hospital was "very restrictive" with few activities, but at Runnymede Hospital he found the staff to be more sympathetic. Somehow, he obtained a typewriter and took up writing. One of his first successes as a freelancer was a correspondence course on fitness that he sold through magazine ads.
His life changed dramatically in 1946 when he was visited by Dr. Al JOUSSE and John COUNSELL, a paraplegic veteran who had been injured at Dieppe. Along with neurosurgeon Doctor Harry BOTTERELL, they had helped set up Lyndhurst Lodge in Toronto as a centre for spinal-injury rehabilitation programs for veterans of the Second World War. As a deserving civilian, Mr. BURK/BURKE was squeezed into the program. He began travelling to Lyndhurst for physiotherapy twice a week. More importantly, he was given one of the Everest and Jennings folding, self-propelled wheelchairs that had provided freedom and hope to paraplegic veterans.
In 1948, he moved to the Young Men's Christian Association in downtown Toronto where he pursued his writing career. He wrote short stories and book reviews, and also worked as a copy editor. It was at the Young Men's Christian Association coffee bar that he met Laddie DENNIS, then a stage actress and radio announcer. She later appeared regularly on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television and became a travel writer. One friend called their romance "the love story of the century." Ms. DENNIS says she "made the first move" and was also the one who proposed. They were married in 1951 and spent their honeymoon in Mexico.
In 1955, they purchased a former five-car garage that once belonged to the historic Falcon Inn in Scarborough. The partly finished structure was considered a white elephant, but the couple turned it into a comfortable home where they often entertained 40 guests at a time.
In 1963, Mr. BURK/BURKE was invited to England to turn his first novel into a screenplay. The project fell through, but along the way he picked up an assignment to write the script for a British Broadcasting Corporation Radio play based on Nikolai Gogol's Diary of a Madman. It starred comedian Kenneth Williams.
Despite his handicap, Mr. BURK/BURKE drove a car, raked lawns, got in and out of a rowboat and even chopped wood.
Mary TREMBLAY started one interview saying she wanted to talk about Mr. BURK/BURKE's ideas about disability. His reply summed up his attitude: "I'm against it."
James BURK/BURKE was born in Toronto on September 16, 1917. He died in Toronto on October 15, 2006, of complications of paraplegia. He was 89. He leaves his wife, Laddie DENNIS, and brothers Paul and Peter KAPHALAKOS.

CUNNINGHAM, Len
By Beth KAPLAN, Page A26
Artist, designer, craftsman, music lover. Born in Ottawa on January 14, 1943. Died of lung cancer in Toronto on January 20, aged 63.
Len CUNNINGHAM was an affable, creative, problem solver. Blessed with thick, white hair and thick fingers capable of delicate work, he lived and worked in a downtown Toronto neighbourhood full of beautiful but crumbling Victorian row houses, all in constant need of their genius handyman. What will Cabbagetown do now without Len?
Not every homeowner who admired his decks and additions, his new kitchens, floors and attic rooms, knew who the man really was. From boyhood, Len loved to design and make things. As a teen, he fashioned for his kid brother a go-kart with steering wheel that was the envy of all. Awarded several design prizes and scholarships, he attended the Ontario College of Art and the Royal College of Art in London, where he earned a master's in industrial design in 1977. With his wife, Annie, and infant daughter Chloe, Len returned from England to Toronto, where son David was born.
Len worked as an industrial designer for several large firms, including Ecko Canada and Canada Post. Later, a customer who picked up a certain kind of cookie sheet or stepladder might hear Len say, "I designed that." After his marriage ended in 1990, Len wanted to work for himself, and he began his career as the local handyman who could build and fix anything, and who'd teach his customers about jazz and the blues, and a lot more, while he did so.
We who watched Len do his job came to appreciate his wide-ranging interests, his intelligence and self-deprecating wit, his enthusiasm for music and his great scores at garage sales, especially paintings of naked women and an original "Mona Lisa." As one of Len's needy customers, I realize now how well he knew us. He saw the worst the insides of our toilets and closets and fridges. Working in our homes as our marriages fell apart along with the heating and the plumbing, he knew about our love lives, sex lives, home lives. But we trusted him with our secrets because we loved him, and we knew that he loved us. He made us feel safe.
Still, for years, Len was a lonely man, nurturing his children and his birds. Though the single women of Cabbagetown adored their Lenny, almost all rejoiced when he met Sharon, who runs the eclectic shop Second Thoughts on Parliament Street. Suddenly, his shoes weren't adorned with holes and his jackets weren't held together with curry paste. The two of them vacationed in Cuba, haunted blues clubs and jazz concerts, and threw generous parties for Cabbagetowners in Len's newly tidy house. He and Sharon had a few -- too few -- years of great happiness. Len was not one to talk about happiness, but it was visible in him. The diagnosis of lung cancer came just as his life had at last settled and bloomed. He and Sharon were married at home only a few days before he died. The minister was paid with a collection taken up by neighbours.
Len received no accolades during his life. He was a man doing a tedious, unglamorous and often thankless job, for which he charged too little. But his funeral was so crowded that the overflow of people down the outside steps of the church struggled to hear the proceedings inside. Speaker after speaker paid tribute to the humour, thoughtfulness, patience and grit with which Len took care of his corner of the world. After the funeral, a well-known writer and regular customer said, "I want to change the way I live, so that people will speak that way about me." A beautiful elderly woman looked at the throng in amazement. "I always thought I was Len's very special friend, the only one," she said.
We all felt the same way.
Beth KAPLAN likes to think she was one of Len's most special Friends.
