SAWCHUK, Taras Michael
With love and sadness, his family records his passing, in the very early morning of Thursday, February 9, 2006, at Sudbury Regional Hospital, Laurentian Site, Sudbury, Ontario, from complications due to Parkinson's disease. Taras was born in Britannia Beach, British Columbia, July 18, 1926, to Ukrainian immigrant parents, Mitchal and Sophie (née DEMKIW.) The young family moved to Sudbury in the early 1930s. He attended Sudbury High School and continued his education in architectural design at Ryerson Polytechnical Institute, Toronto. In Toronto he also met his wife, Sonia (nee NICOLOFF,) and they returned to raise their three children in Sudbury where he initially pursued a career in architecture. In the 1960s he designed Chelmsford Valley District Composite School and went on to become a dedicated and much-loved teacher in the same school in the 1960s through to his retirement late 1980s. He returned to British Columbia in the 1990s, for love. He was an enthusiastic Vancouver folk orchestra member. He created regular opportunities for travel with family members and close Friends, to share his love of music, theatre and visual arts. He was a watercolour artist. He loved the Canadian outdoors and was an avid cross-country skier and tennis player. He moved once more to Sudbury in 2001 where, in spite of failing health, he is remembered by those who assisted him as a gentle, considerate man, who retained his exceptional social graces (and love of dancing) to the end. If desired, a donation to a humanitarian cause of your choice is an appropriate remembrance of his strong convictions and activism in that regard. Taras was also a life-long member of the Association of United Ukrainian Canadians and a founding member of the Sudbury Jubilee Folk Ensemble. He is survived by his loving partner, Margot THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON; his son, Jim; two daughters, Sonia and Taressa; three grandchildren, Justin, Mikaila and Wave his brother, Oryst; and nephew, Sergei. Shortly before his death, Taras learned he would be a great-grandfather. Alexander Tarino SAWCHUK is expected in March. Friends and family will be received at the Jackson and Barnard Funeral Home (233 Larch Street, Sudbury, Ontario, P3B 1M2, 1-800-461-0159), on Sunday, February 19, from 2 to 5 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. A Memorial Service to celebrate his life is planned for the spring in Sudbury. Ash interment is also planned for the spring.

SAWYER, Derek -- Dispatch:
By Tenille BONOGUORE, Page M5
While Derek SAWYER loved engineering -- his wife, Susan, says he was born to the job -- it was his hobby that put him into the public sphere.
Ringing bells may seem straightforward, but it is actually very difficult to manage a full peal. There are ropes, bells, varying rhythms and more to consider. In short, it's a perfect form of music for an engineer, according to Mrs. SAWYER, and both the hobby and the profession were constants in Mr. SAWYER's life.
An engineer with Ontario Hydro for 25 years, he worked on some of the region's biggest construction projects, including the Bruce nuclear power station, before taking early retirement in Mr. SAWYER learned change ringing -- the art of ringing a set of tuned bells in a series of mathematical patterns -- in England as a 10-year-old boy, but was thwarted by a lack of equipment when he moved to Canada.
Instead, he started a hand-bell choir at Saint Peter's Anglican Church in Mississauga before helping bring a 12-bell peal to Saint_James Cathedral downtown in 1997.
The day the bell peal was first rung over Toronto was a highlight of his life, Mrs. SAWYER said, along with his wedding day and the births of his sons, Christopher and Andrew.
A month shy of his 64th birthday, and three months before his 40th wedding anniversary, Mr. SAWYER died of a heart attack on June 2.
Fittingly, the muffled sound of his beloved bells sang a sombre farewell at his funeral at Saint_James on June 8.
"That was the bit I was dreading, but in actual fact I found it particularly comforting," Mrs. SAWYER said.
"The bells will always be there and hopefully there will always be ringers to carry on."

Derek SAWYER, 63: Exalted bell-ringer
Derek SAWYER brought glorious sounds to Toronto church
Engineer at Ontario Hydro engaged in a heavenly hobby
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
He was Toronto's lord of the rings, the man who brought North America's first -- and so far only -- set of 12 glorious change bells to the tower of Saint_James' Cathedral.
You can hear them every Sunday morning, heralding the start of the two services at the King St. E. church. If you are lucky, you can hear them at other random times as they commemorate a wedding, a bicentennial, perhaps, or a synod.
These are not stationary chiming bells; these are not bells wired to a computer tolling the quarter-hour. These are something different bronze bells hung in frames allowing a full 360-degree swing and weighing between 110 kilograms and two tonnes.
Ringing Saint_James's great bronze bells in a precise orderly relationship, one after another, creates change ringing. There are a possible 479 million changes, and completing just one of them requires skill and a mastery of an ancient English art that goes back to the Middle Ages. It also necessitates a band of change ringers at least as enthralled, if not as obsessed, as was Derek SAWYER.
"Bells are the loud voice of the church and they reach out to the people outside of the church," he once told a reporter for this newspaper.
But they were his voice, too, his joy, his passion, his ode to life.
SAWYER was a 10-year-old choirboy in Leicestershire, England, when he noticed the parish bell ringers only had to come to church a few minutes before the service, not the half-hour earlier required of him. That was all it took for him to try it -- standing on a wooden box -- and once he had tried it, he was hooked.
"I won't say change ringing is addictive," his wife Susan said, "but it is obsessive." She likens their sound to the bagpipes, in that the listener "either loves them or hates them." She capitulated and learned the art of change ringing seven years ago.
Derek SAWYER became master of the change-ringing society at Bristol University, where he studied electrical engineering. Had he not signed on for what he thought would be just a short three-year work adventure in Canada, he would have no doubt gone on to become master at the Leicester Cathedral.
Instead he stayed in Canada, in Toronto, where he worked for Ontario Hydro for 27 years. He took vacations to American cities, where there were change bells he could ring, and spent many weekends in Quebec City cleaning, tuning and hanging new bell-changing ropes in the tower of the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity.
"Change ringing there had been off and on until Derek did that," said cathedral tower captain Douglas Kitson. "Now it's solid."
Back on home ground, SAWYER had to resort to a hand bell-ringing group he started with three others pining for change-bell ringing.
"It was second best," Susan SAWYER admitted.
After his group disbanded in the mid-1970s, SAWYER was left with a set of 12 hand-ringing bells and no ringers. He wasted no time in creating a new group with teens from his church, Saint Peter's Anglican, which started with rehearsals around his Mississauga dining room and grew to become a group of adults who rang bells in nursing homes and hospitals, as well as in other churches.
Gregarious and personable, SAWYER was a communicator and his enthusiasm for his hobby was not only palpable, it was contagious.
And so when an Australian magnate and change-bell aficionado phoned him on his way through Toronto to say he thought there should be a set of change bells in this city and that he would find them, SAWYER saw the opportunity to make his dream come true.
It took him seven years -- and fundraising amounting to $500,000 but by the end of March 1997, the ship carrying 10 bells cast in 1828 from bronze taken from French cannons captured during the Battle of Waterloo arrived in Toronto's harbour. Eight survived the trip; four new bells were recast from the leftover gun metal.
They were uncrated and set out on platforms in a warehouse along Queens Quay for a welcoming party -- "I think everybody (from the church) could actually believe they were going in at that point," Susan recalled -- then transported on a flatbed to the church.
SAWYER took the day off work, determined to see the fruition of what he'd worked so long for.
"It was always a burning idea in Derek's mind that we have bells in Toronto and his engineering background had them install it properly," said Derek DODD, a cathedral parishioner but not a change-bell ringer at the time.
But he was among a small group whom SAWYER taught to ring in time for their dedication ceremony that June 27, a date that also marked the cathedral's 200th anniversary. Ringers flew in from England for the event, but the local ringers -- the ones SAWYER had been training three or four times a week for several months -- also rang during the dedication service.
"Derek was in charge and he gave each person, each local member, a chance to ring the bell at a certain point in time. We felt it was important we did it ourselves," DODD said. "It was a thrill. We were all congratulating each other, high-fiving, reaching out and touching each other in the tower. We did it. We did it."
Queen Elizabeth attended the service that Sunday and SAWYER was presented to her. He later reported to his wife that the Queen knew her bells and could talk the talk -- the monarch had told him she thought the 12s so much richer than 10s or 8s.
After SAWYER retired in 2002, he and Susan went change ringing in Australia, in the cathedral in Leicester and even in Westminster Abbey, an honour marking SAWYER's skill. This past May, they were in Quebec City for an annual get-together of the North American Guild of Change Ringers.
SAWYER spent most of his time in the bell tower.
On the way home, the SAWYERs stopped off in Kingston to see their younger son Andrew, just home from serving in Afghanistan. The following Friday, June 2, SAWYER died unexpectedly, in his sleep. The Saint_James' Cathedral bell ringers gathered in the tower the following Thursday to ring for SAWYER's funeral.
"That was when the full emotion of the ringers came out," DODD said. "It was very private, between ourselves. We supported each other."
SAWYER's oldest son Christopher, a geologist, joined them for the half-muffled ring; Susan SAWYER heard it from the church. On the evening of June 27, the anniversary of the day change bells finally rang out in Toronto and the day he would have turned 64, ringers gathered in towers throughout North America to honour SAWYER, the man for whom the bells always tolled.
