BELL, Thomas Edward James (1941-2006)
After a valiant battle against cancer, our dad, husband, brother, and friend passed away Friday, June 30th at Sunnybrook Hospital. He was a loving husband and friend to Pam (née TAIT/TAITE/TATE,) a wonderful father and mentor to Catherine BELL (Kent BROWN,) Jennifer BELL (Jeff BURZYNSKI) and Kimberley BELL (Wes PARKER,) and a fabulous grandfather to John and Michael BROWN, Sidney and Grayson BURZYNSKI, and Keara PARKER. He was a cherished brother to Carolyn McLENNAN (Peter McLENNAN) and he loved and was loved by his nieces and nephews. Tom was predeceased by his parents, Tom and Lillian BELL. After completing his B.Sc. at McGill University, (fun filled years of fraternity and playing Redman hockey), Tom began his career in business. He was a seasoned marketing, sales, and operations executive who had a passion for entrepreneurial opportunities. Tom greatly enjoyed various challenging positions that took him across Canada and around the world. Tom had a sincere love of nature. His cottage at Big Gull Lake was particularly special to him. He was a keen observer and had a deep understanding of the natural world. He was happiest in the outdoors - at his lake or in the garden. Tom will be remembered by his daughters as the best dad ever - from hours spent teaching them how to water-ski to offering his wise counsel on life's more complex issues. He was patient, reassuring, and most definitely their greatest fan. For those who knew him well, he will be missed for his passion and fight for life, his genuine positive attitude, his twinkling eyes, and bright smile. We would like to thank Doctor BERRY and his team at Sunnybrook Hospital and Doctors KOCHA, REID, and LOGAN and their team at the London Health Sciences Centre for their exceptional efforts. Tom's care at both facilities was outstanding and we would like to express our gratitude and appreciation to all of the nurses involved in his care. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the London (Ontario) Health Sciences Neuroendocrine Program, 800 Commissioners Road East, P.O. Box 5010 London, Ontario, Canada N6A 5W9. A memorial service will take place on Wednesday, July 5th at 1: 00 p.m. at Lawrence Park Community Church in Toronto.

KOCK, Henry -- I Remember
By Linda PIM, Page S10
Linda PIM of Inglewood, Ontario, writes about horticulturist Henry KOCK, whose obituary ran January 21.
Almost every time Henry and his wife Anne HANSEN came to visit, he would bring a plant for our garden, always one he had grown from seed and usually a native Ontario species. I loved the gentleness with which Henry's big hands worked around plants and soil. He often brought a blue-flowering plant - real blue, like the sky - as he knew that was my favourite.
Henry collected seeds, plant cuttings and whole plants wherever he could. I remember a trip my partner Paul AIRD and I made to Newfoundland in 1999 with Henry and Anne. We were all struck by the beautiful abundance of a particularly hardy monkshood in everyone's front gardens - a riot of purple profusion. After a week as a foursome, Henry and Anne headed off on a sea kayaking trip while Paul and I continued exploring the Great Northern Peninsula. Henry had asked me to try to collect some monkshood plants and bring them home on the plane. I did so, not without difficulty. Alas, mine died within a year. Henry's are still thriving in their Guelph garden.

Henry KOCK, 53: Consummate tree hugger
Horticulturalist instrumental in saving the elm
His own garden a testament to his passion for nature
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
It's difficult to think of someone 6-foot-4 as a wood sprite, but that was Henry KOCK. Or perhaps he was better catalogued as our very own Johnny Appleseed -- only the seeds he was spreading belonged to the majestic elm, whose distinctive silhouette is reappearing throughout the province thanks to him.
He was the public face of the University of Guelph's Arboretum and what a face that was. Normally staid journalists would wax poetic after encounters with the KOCK charisma: "With eyes the colour of dark moss, a graying black beard that birds could nest in, and a tall angular body, he reminded me of the Green Man, the pagan god of woodlands," the Toronto Star's Cameron SMITH wrote in 1998.
KOCK could enchant. His seasonal pruning courses were always sold out. His slide-show presentations -- culled from the tens of thousands of slides he'd taken and which he gave to any group that asked for them -- were inspirational.
"He was such a talented communicator. People would leave the show in tears," said Dave MARTIN, KOCK's brother-in-law and energy co-ordinator of Greenpeace.
KOCK made it easy to believe -- as he did -- that nature is often better left alone, our native plants are glorious species, pesticides kill, suburban lawns are an aberration -- he used to call them "intensive care units" -- and most of all, that nothing exists in isolation.
It's why he demonstrated with his homemade signs against the war in Iraq and attended every International Women's Day march in Toronto for the past 15 years, traditionally toasting that day's end sharing a bottle of wine with his wife, Anne HANSEN, on the Toronto Islands.
In addition to creating the Elm Recovery Project, he founded Guelph's Hillside Folk Festival, he helped start its local food co-op, the Guelph Environmental Watchdog group and the local branch of the Peace Petition caravan campaign. He was on the board of the Ontario Public Research Group. It was his idea to have the university host an annual organic food conference that has become the most important in Canada, if not North America.
KOCK, along with HANSEN, was a vegetarian, car-free, bought second-hand and only when necessary, and washed and reused plastic bags. Their home in an older Guelph suburb was kept at a sweater temperature but was known throughout town for its traffic-stopping front garden of conifers and ferns and wild strawberry cover, the sunflowers that lined the road, the old bicycle tube that hung from the branch of a tree. There wasn't an inch of grass, but there were some 400 species of native plants and trees.
KOCK called it his "hotel of the trees" and used to say it was a "bed and breakfast" for the 75 species of birds that visited his yard. He created his own forest in the backyard with rain water collected in barrels, a pond he and MARTIN spent four days digging out, and an old submerged bathtub he and Hansen would loll in on hot summer days.
But KOCK was running out of time. He had been diagnosed in July 2004, with glioblastoma multiforme, a particularly virulent form of brain cancer, and although he left the Arboretum, for the next 16 months he saw Friends, hiked with HANSEN, took his annual birding trip and rode his bicycle to Guelph's Saturday farmers' market. He spent his last month in hospital tended to by family and Friends. On December 22, about 70 of them gathered in the cold outside his second-floor window to sing Christmas carols.
KOCK was 53 when he died Christmas morning. His family placed an elm wreath on his chest. HANSEN covered him with paper hearts and threaded cedar, rosemary sprigs and paperwhites throughout his great beard. They rented the biggest hall in town, but it couldn't accommodate all of the 600 people who showed up for his memorial service.
An article in the Guelph Mercury two days after his death noted that KOCK "managed to touch thousands of lives locally and across Canada through his efforts to protect the environment." The same paper had published an earlier editorial about KOCK, entitled "The city will not forget."
He was born in Canada's chemical valley -- in Bright's Grove, outside Sarnia -- into a family that had run nurseries in Holland for generations. His pacifist parents came to Canada in 1950 after surviving wartime occupation, eventually starting a nursery. "Henry would say it was in his blood," said Dave MARTIN, who married KOCK's sister Irene, who died four years ago in a car accident.
KOCK graduated from the University of Guelph in 1977, but he didn't want to work in the family business -- or in any nursery for that matter. He'd already started taking a machinist's course when then Arboretum curator John AMBROSE hired him in 1981 to be a technician.
"I had heard about him," AMBROSE recalled. "I knew he had a different outlook on everything, but it was more than that. He was a special person. Any time you started talking to Henry about something, it was always connected to a bigger Earth issue."
Said his sister, Helen RYKENS, " Trees were his passion and he could run courses that promoted gardening he felt was better for the planet."
KOCK's idea of recreation was hiking, camping and white-water rafting, and it was on an Algonquin camping trip that he met HANSEN.
"He was wearing mismatched shoes and so was I and we both noticed it," she recalled. "Within 24 hours, we knew we were partners."
HANSEN continued to live and work in Toronto, moving permanently to Guelph only after KOCK's diagnosis.
She is organizing a springtime bike ride for KOCK, during which she will bring home his ashes.
"I'm going to return some of them to the trees he nurtured and who nurtured him during his illness," she said. Others will be scattered in the wilderness.
Then there will be a party for him in their backyard. " I'm going to make as big a deal as I can out of this because I think Henry would approve of people eating and drinking and enjoying his backyard."

Suspected street racer dies in hospital
Was driving one of 3 Corvettes on 427
Cars seized by police in separate fatal crash
By Amanda-Marie QUINTINO, Staff Reporter
A 25-year-old Etobicoke man who spent almost a week in hospital with serious head injuries following a suspected street race has died.
Myron KOCUR died Sunday of injuries suffered June 13 when his silver Corvette hit a guardrail along the northbound lanes of Highway 427 near Rathburn Rd. at about 11 p.m., police said.
The collision occurred after three Corvettes were seen travelling at extremely high speeds, police said.
"It is certainly an obvious possibility that these three speeding Corvettes could have been street racing," said Ontario Provincial Police Sgt. Cam WOOLLEY. "The possibility is definitely a part of the investigation."
The victim was ejected from the Corvette, which was torn to pieces. Debris was spread across six lanes.
The drivers of the other two Corvettes were arrested. Milan PAUNOV, 31, of Etobicoke, is charged with dangerous driving causing bodily harm, criminal negligence causing bodily harm and failing to remain.
Michael GODINA, 24, also of Etobicoke, is charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.
As a result of KOCUR's death, amended charges are pending.
Police have seized the other two Corvettes, WOOLLEY said.
Since 1999, 34 people in the Greater Toronto Area have died in street-racing incidents, police say.
Meanwhile, York Region police said yesterday that they have seized two vehicles involved in a collision that killed two people last month.
Robert MANCHESTER, 46, and his wife, Lisa MANCHESTER, 43, of Richmond Hill, were killed May 27 in a suspected street race at the intersection of Yonge St. and Stouffville Rd. On Thursday, officers executed search warrants at the homes of the men charged in the fatal crash and seized their vehicles as offence-related property under the authority of the Criminal Code.
