Immense talent of artist Klaas VERBOOM will be missed
By Kathy RUMLESKI, Free Press Reporter, Thurs., June 15, 2006
Parkhill artist Klaas VERBOOM was praised yesterday for his spirit of giving, as well as his immense talent.
VERBOOM, 58, a London native, died at Strathroy Middlesex General Hospital early yesterday from liver cancer.
"He had a heart as big as his career," said friend Teresa MARIE of Grand Bend, who considered VERBOOM her mentor. They used to meet every Monday night to paint.
"Klaas taught me how to paint. He was a wonderful, genuine and gentle person and extremely talented."
VERBOOM married his longtime partner Paulette in April, shortly after being diagnosed with cancer.
"She's a surgical nurse. She just retired two weeks before they got married," MARIE said. "They were just starting their lives (as a married couple). They seem a little ripped-off."
VERBOOM's work, mostly oil paintings, is in many public collections across Canada, including the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery, Avon Canada in Montreal and Museum London.
"Museum London is very fortunate to have works by him in our permanent collection," said the museum's executive director Brian MEEHAN.
"As an artist, Klaas carried on the great tradition of landscape painting in this country and was able to capture Southwestern Ontario in beautiful detail."
VERBOOM was chosen to paint a portrait of wheelchair athlete Rick Hansen by his Man in Motion Tour in 1986.
Two of his works, Fox and Hounds, were recently accepted for the Master of Foxhounds Association of America Centennial Travelling Art Exhibition, which will open in New York in January 2007 and travel across North America.
VERBOOM's paintings fetched as much as $20,000 through the years, MARIE said.
One painting, Fall Splendor, was commissioned by a visiting Dutch businessperson browsing in Sandy Snelgrove's Gallery in London, which represented VERBOOM.
VERBOOM was once asked about his goal as an artist and said "I want people to look at my work and say, 'Boy, this guy really enjoyed painting these.' "
VERBOOM is also survived by his mother Margaret, sons Bill HINDLE and Douwe VERBOOM and his stepson Chris CAHILL.
A memorial service will be held Saturday at 2 p.m. at the M. Box and son Funeral Home in Parkhill.

George BAIN, 86: Political columnist set standard
A must-read in Canada for nearly 40 years
Helped clarify muddle over 'fuddle duddle'
By Isabel TEOTONIO, Staff Reporter
For Canadian political junkies from the 1950s through the 1980s, George BAIN's newspaper column was a must-read.
Witty, urbane, and an incisive observer of Parliament Hill and Washington, BAIN's elegant prose and musings about politics and politicians informed and delighted readers for more than 40 years.
Remember "fuddle duddle," the late prime minister Pierre Trudeau's explanation of an expletive he directed to an opposition member of Parliament in the House of Commons? Thank BAIN for setting the record straight on it.
The rest of the Ottawa press gallery reported only that Trudeau "mouthed an obscenity" in the now-famous 1968 incident. In his Globe and Mail column, BAIN wrote that Trudeau told the member of Parliament to fuck off, and without the dashes -- the first time the word had ever been published in a Canadian newspaper.
BAIN, who also wrote for The Toronto Star, died in Halifax yesterday (May 14) at age 86. He had suffered from Alzheimer's disease.
"He wrote the most important column in Canada," said Val SEARS, a former Star reporter who worked with him. "He was the most stylish of the people writing about Canadian politics. His columns were often hilarious, which made him tremendously popular."
"George wrote with real wit and style," said Tim CREERY, a former Southam News and Montreal Star reporter who worked with him in Ottawa and Washington.
"He was clever and funny and not a guy who accepted the party line."
BAIN's column in the Globe set the standard to which political columnists aspired. He was considered the unofficial opposition in Ottawa and never cowered from pointing out when politicians' words didn't square with their actions.
Allan FOTHERINGHAM, who himself occupies a formidable place in Canadian journalism, once called him "the wittiest columnist ever to grace Ottawa."
When the late Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio giant Peter GZOWSKI was asked if he read BAIN, he responded, "Do Catholic priests read the Bible?"
BAIN's " Letters from Lilac, Saskatchewan.," were columns in which he created fictional prairie reactions to political events. The columns distilled his trademark humour and wit, were hugely popular and were later published in a book.
Born in Toronto in 1920, BAIN quit school at age 16 to work as a copy boy at the Star for $6 a week. But he ended up back in school, vowing to return to the paper over the summer.
"I can't explain where his interest in newspaper work arose but he had the reputation of being a funny guy -- not a class clown at North Toronto Collegiate," said brother Ian BAIN, who attended the same school.
When he returned to the Star that summer, the editor who'd promised him a job was on vacation.
Rather than "waste a streetcar ticket," as BAIN later told a reporter, he went over to the Toronto Telegram and was hired on the spot.
He worked there until 1941, when he became an Royal Canadian Air Force bomber pilot -- despite a fear of flying that lasted throughout his life. He served in Britain and North Africa, piloting Wellington bombers on raids against Italy. He was given temporary leave to act in a film about the air force.
At the end of the war, BAIN was lured from the Telegram by the Globe, where he wrote about municipal politics. He eventually moved on to Queen's Park and Parliament Hill.
In 1957, BAIN opened the Globe's first London bureau, where he covered Europe, Africa and the Middle East. From 1960 to 1964 he was posted to Washington and reported on the civil rights movement, the Cuban missile crisis and the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
In 1964, BAIN returned to Ottawa to begin work as the national affairs columnist and remained there for nearly a decade.
He returned to the Star as editorial page editor in 1973, but realized he didn't like the committee process of writing editorials. "Writing editorials is like wetting your pants while wearing a blue serge suit," he once said. "Nobody notices and it leaves you with a warm feeling."
The next year, the Star sent him to London as a European correspondent.
Editors at the Star knew him as a "perfectionist" who would rewrite his opening paragraph 30 times before being satisfied.
BAIN's last newspaper column ran in the Star on August 10, 2001 a fitting end to a career launched in those same pages.
"There are very few people to whom you could apply the word giant. Pierre Berton was one and I think Walter Stewart was one and certainly George BAIN was one," said former King's College journalism professor Eugene MEESE, who worked with BAIN.
BAIN and his wife Marion were eventually seduced by Nova Scotia and in 1982 they designed and built their home in Mahone Bay, complete with a wine cellar to house his vintage collection.
While out east, he continued writing about wine while serving as dean of journalism at King's College in Halifax and maintaining a critical watch on Ottawa for two Halifax dailies.
BAIN authored books including I've Been Around and Around and Around, Letters from Lilac, Champagne is for Breakfast, Gotcha and Nursery Rhymes to be Read Aloud by Young Parents with Old Children, which won the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour.
After Marion died in 1998, BAIN's health deteriorated. He is survived by his son Christopher and grand_sons Sam and Jonathan, his brother Ian of Maple Ridge, British Columbia, and sisters Moyna SEIDERMAN and Sheila BAIN of Vancouver.
