KLAPPIS, James " Jimmy"
By Alan RAYBURN, Page A24
Artist, architectural designer, painter, singer, cinematographer. Born March 27, 1918, in Buffalo, New York Died April 30, in Niagara Falls, Ontario, aged 88.
Jimmy -- never James -- was the only child of Harry and Blanche (RILEY) KLAPPIS. During his childhood, Jimmy suffered with breathing problems. A doctor recommended moving him to a higher elevation. In 1930, a Greek family in Owen Sound, Ontario, took Harry, Blanche and Jimmy to Orangeville, then a small town some miles northwest of Toronto. They had arrived in one of the towns in Ontario at a suitably high elevation and they stayed. Recalling his Arcadian roots in Sparta, Greece, Harry opened a confectionery, and called it the Arcadia Sweets. It soon became a full-service restaurant, which continued operation until the early 1960s.
Jimmy KLAPPIS was an exceptional person, who possessed total visual recall. When he was a young man he went to see where a train had wrecked a car. With no notes at all, he returned home and drew an accurate picture of the scene. The Orangeville Banner published the sketch, and observed that he had "every promise of making his mark as an artist or a newspaper illustrator." Jimmy became a highly respected courtroom artist, covering many important trials. He also designed many houses and buildings, as well as store and church fronts.
In the late 1930s, Jimmy studied at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto. Noting his distinguished baritone singing, a teacher urged him to audition for the Metropolitan Opera in New York, but he declined. An aunt in Niagara Falls, New York recommended him to the classically trained baritone Nelson Eddy, who kindly wrote a two-page letter to tell him that it was very difficult to pursue a musical career in Los Angeles.
In 1944, Jimmy joined the Royal Canadian Ordnance Corps. The following year he was accidentally pushed off a train carrying Canadian troops, and his arm was pulled from its socket. He was taken to the Chorley Park Hospital in Toronto to recover. A colonel at the hospital knew about Jimmy's skills for sketching, and arranged to get him work at Victory Aircraft Co. in Malton, Ontario There he drew technical illustrations for the conversion of the Lancaster bombers to passenger planes. He left that company when it became Avro Canada Ltd. He was given a turret of a bomber, which was donated in 2005 to the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum.
Jimmy made hobby horses in Orangeville for Eaton's and Simpsons Sears in Toronto, but his toy factory was converted into a workshop for boys in 1948, after the town's high school was destroyed by fire. In 1949, Jimmy built a three-tonne car with a Pontiac chassis and engine. Those given rides called it "the Banana Wagon," because he had painted it bright yellow.
Jimmy preferred to work overnight, then sleep until the early afternoon, when he would go to the restaurant for his breakfast. Jimmy never served in the restaurant, no matter how busy it might have been.
Many Canadian and American Greek families with marriageable daughters visited Harry and Blanche to urge Jimmy to offer his hand, but Jimmy wanted to marry Marion EMACK, an Orangeville lady who had briefly worked at the restaurant. They were married in September, 1965. In 1978 they moved to Etobicoke, where Jimmy was closer to his work as a freelance cameraman for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation-television. They moved to Niagara Falls in 1987, where they had relatives and Friends on both sides of the border.
Jimmy left school in Grade 11, but his education surpassed many brilliant scholars. He was truly a Renaissance man.
Alan is a friend of Jimmy. Marion KLAPPIS and her brothers George and Jack EMACK contributed to this essay.
