FOX, Frank Arthur -- Dispatch:
By Suzanne MA, Page M6
Frank Arthur FOX loved searching for treasures.
He was born in Clacton-on-Sea, a seaside resort town in Essex, England. On his 17th birthday, with his parents and two brothers, Mr. FOX immigrated to Canada. One year later, he met Claudine O'SHAUGHNESSY -- his most cherished treasure -- on a bus. He sat down on the empty seat next to her and stayed there past his own bus stop. In 1957, the two were married. They would have four children -- Matthew, John, Andrew and Anne -- and five grandchildren.
Mr. FOX ran a building supplies company until 1979, at which point he decided to turn a hobby into his new business. Having always loved tinkering with antiques, he and his wife began buying, repairing and refinishing a host of Canadian treasures.
He was especially fond of collecting Canadian military medals, insignias and badges. He would also create new items by taking the sterling silver handles off old knives and using them to make new objects such as magnifying glasses, letter openers, key chains and ice-cream scoops.
"They made lovely and unusual gifts," his wife remembers. "He always liked creating new things."
But what he enjoyed most was the search. "He really liked meeting the people who were selling the antiques and searching for the right product," Mrs. FOX says. "That was the fun part."
He was still finding and fixing treasures a month before he died.
Diagnosed with colorectal and liver cancer two years ago, Mr. FOX died at home on June 8 at the age of 71, with his wife and his daughter by his side.

BARKER, Edward Hugh -- Dispatch:
By Suzanne MA, Page M4
A week before he died, Edward Hugh BARKER could still recite baseball statistics and players' names from years ago. "You could talk about any game in any World Series and he seemed to know all the players and almost all the game-by-game scores," says his son, Edward John BARKER. "I used to go on the Internet and ask him questions, and he would know all the answers."
Mr. BARKER was born in Toronto in 1914 and started working as a stockbroker when he was 19, ultimately spending 42 years at Bongard and Co. (now part of BMO Nesbitt Burns.)
In 1943, he saw Ruth WADDINGTON across the dance floor at a nightclub in Toronto. He asked her to dance, and less than a year later they were married. They would have six children -- five girls and one boy -- 15 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
In the evenings and on weekends, father and son walked every square inch of their Leaside neighbourhood - taking long hikes, fishing, playing catch, strolling by the railroad and watching the trains flatten pennies they would later use as guitar picks. And of course, taking the subway downtown to watch baseball games. When Edward John BARKER got married in 1978, his father was his best man.
And while Mr. BARKER loved playing ball with his son, he didn't hesitate to share his mitts with others either.
One winter day while walking around Queen's Park, he saw a man shovelling snow without gloves. He took off his own and offered them to the man, who gratefully accepted them.

NORREY, Ernest G. -- Dispatch:
By Suzanne MA, Page M4
For more than 50 years, Ernest G. NORREY watched the city of Toronto grow up from his watch out on the waters of Lake Ontario.
He was only five years old in 1917, when he and his family travelled across the ocean to Canada from Newcastle-under-Lyme in Staffordshire, England.
As a teen, Mr. NORREY worked a number of jobs, including fixing and painting the roller coasters at Sunnyside Amusement Park, maintaining order as a bouncer at the Palais Royale ballroom, and keeping a watchful eye, as a lifeguard, at Sunnyside Beach.
"The sun and the water were a part of his life," said his grand_son, Brent NORREY. "It seemed to be the most important thread."
He married Phyllis PURSLEY, who worked in the cloak room of the Palais Royale, in 1937, and eventually he worked his way up to become a superintendent with the Toronto Harbour Police, patrolling Lake Ontario.
In 1949, he was one of the first on the scene when the passenger ship Noronic caught fire in the harbour. He spent the rest of the night hauling people out of the water. When Hurricane Hazel hit the city in 1954, a photograph of Mr. NORREY and his partner rescuing a drowning man from out of the Don River was printed on the front page of the Toronto Telegram.
"That was his job, to rescue people," his grand_son said.
Mr. NORREY died of congestive heart failure on July 5 at Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital. He was 93.
