Leslie WITT, 72: Chess 'superstar'
Received carved set from Fidel Castro
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Leslie WITT never talked about the time he beat Bobby Fischer at his own game -- but others did for years afterwards.
It was 1964 and the chess world's greatest prodigy had not yet knocked out Russian great Boris Spassky from his world domination, but the 19-year-old was still a huge chess star and all of Montreal's and Toronto's chess players were thrilled when he showed up for some exhibition matches.
His first day in Montreal, Fischer was subjected to a vapid television interview. He hated being asked questions about dating; he actually hated talking about anything other than chess but the highlight of the show was the one-minute chess match he played against WITT, then the city's best player as well as a member of the Canadian Olympic chess team.
Fischer was -- naturally -- confident. He'd already played two exhibition games -- one in which he faced 56 people at once, beating them all, the other where he took on 10 players with clocks. They were better players but Fischer completed his 40 moves in under two hours, winning every game.
He could be forgiven for thinking he had another easy ride ahead. WITT, a Hungarian émigré, was unprepossessing -- an affable, smiling man who earned his living as a television repairman, not particularly tall, a little on the pudgy side.
"But Les was one of the speediest players I have ever seen," recalled Denis ALLAN, an assistant Crown attorney in Hamilton who was a young chess player at the time. "Not only could he think fast, but the speed with which he could move his hands was incredible. Bobby was not happy about losing. He made that clear."
Much later that night everybody got together at the Boulevard Club, where chess was played seven days a week, and Fischer and WITT faced off for about a dozen five-minute games.
"Bobby cleaned him out," ALLAN recalled. "Leslie won maybe one, but even one game is pretty good. Bobby Fischer was a genius."
But WITT was pretty darn good as well: a four-time Montreal chess champion, three-time winner of the Montreal Closed Championship, winner of the Quebec Provincial Championship, the Ontario Provincial Championship and, in 1962, the Canadian Open Chess Championship, held that year in Ottawa, with a perfect score of 9-0.
He was a member of the Canadian chess Olympic team at the 1964 Olympiad held in Tel Aviv, the 1966 Olympiad in Havana and the 1970 event in Germany.
"I remember the Tel Aviv Olympiad because it was the first time the Canadian team made the A group -- the top two teams," said Zvonko VRANESIC, a University of Toronto professor who often played WITT. In the '60s he and WITT were vying for the country's top spot.
"They were the two superstars," said Toronto Star chess columnist Lawrence DAY. "It was a great rivalry."
Both men were representing Canada when Cuban leader Fidel Castro, a big chess fan, pulled out all the stops for the Olympiad in Havana -- putting them up in the best hotel, even opening the event himself playing an exhibition match with the ubiquitous Fischer. Castro presented each player with a gorgeous wooden chess set, in a splendid carved box.
In 1969, WITT won a Brilliancy Prize in the Canadian Closed tournament. That same year he was named an International Master, which is one rank below Grand Master.
Laszlo WITT was born in Budapest, where chess is respected and popular, and the best chess players accorded the accolades reserved for hockey players in North America. He began playing the game at age 8 and tournaments when 15. By 17, he was the premier player for the Hungarian junior national team.
He was in Vienna for a tournament during the three weeks in October and November of 1956 of the Hungarian Revolution. His wife, Viola, and 4½-year-old daughter, Sylvia, had not been permitted to accompany him to the tournament. "We were collateral," said Sylvia SANKEY, now a stage manager who lives in Winnipeg.
Jews who had pretended to be Christians since the war when most of the family's male relatives -- including WITT's father -- were taken to Auschwitz concentration camp where they perished, they quickly decided to flee the country. Mother and daughter crossed the border to Austria to the sounds of Russians shooting on one side and Germans on the other. For three weeks they had hid out in farmhouses and fields.
They were taken to refugee camp outside Vienna where they were eventually reunited with WITT. They left for Italy and the ocean voyage to Halifax, where one of WITT's six sisters lived, moving to Montreal in 1957.
They lived in a walk-up on the Main in the heart of the émigré chess-playing community.
SANKEY remembers them always sitting at her parents' kitchen table playing chess with her father, all men, all in their 20s and 30s, slapping the button on the top of the clocks.
She and her mother never did really learn to play the game, but SANKEY grasped quickly that she had to be "quiet, quiet, quiet" so her father and his Friends could play. "I would read or go and watch television in the other room. It was just a part of life, coming home to see who ever happened to be in the kitchen playing chess with daddy. It was the norm," she said.
And yet by the time the family all moved to Toronto in the late '70s, WITT had all but retreated from the chess scene. In Toronto and Montreal it was no longer dominated by the émigré master a new generation of home-grown talent had emerged under their tutelage.
Current top-rated Canadian Kevin SPRAGGETT was moving up fast. "He beat WITT in 1979 for the Montreal championship and that was the changing of the guard," said DAY.
WITT was a very private man who simply slipped out of the world of chess. Few questioned it -- chess had become an increasingly young person's game.
"When you've played the game at such a high level, climbing down is difficult," VRANESIC said. "People just quit instead. I think that's what probably happened in this case."
WITT took up painting and backgammon in the '80s and in the last few years frequently went to Casino Rama for poker games.
Before he died at 72 on December 27, his daughter found his easel and paints in the Scarborough townhouse he had shared with a young couple -- as well as the chess set from Havana.
"You know it was kind of sad," said ALLAN, the lawyer. " WITT's death was mentioned on an international chess chat room and it got no comments. I guess people just don't know him anymore."

DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS, Kathleen Joan (formerly HORNE, née HALLOWELL)
Peacefully at her home in Belleville, in her 75th year. Daughter of the late Reverend Carew HALLOWELL and the late Francis Mary HALLOWELL (née BROWNLEE.) Survived by her husband, Dr. Kenneth DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS her three children, Cynthia TAILOR/TAYLOR, David HORNE (Adriana,) and Robert HORNE (Michelle;) five grandchildren, Emily, Alexandra, Melissa, Kayla, and James; sister Mary McLARTY (Tom) of London, Ontario, and brother Bob HALLOWELL (Joyce) of Comox, British Columbia. Joan was a Registered Nurse and graduate (1954) of the Victoria Hospital in London, Ontario, when she married the late Dr. Stewart Douglas HORNE (Belleville and Guelph.) In their 31 years together, they raised three children, Cynthia, David and Robert. A wonderfully loving mother, she infused in her children a love of music, laughter, and a positive outlook on life. After her children were grown, Joan continued her care for others by recertifying as a Registered Nurse and working at the Homewood Health Care Centre and Lapointe-Fisher Nursing Home in Guelph, Ontario. She was loved by those with whom she worked and cared for. In 1989, Joan was remarried to Dr. Kenneth M. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS (Belleville.) In Ken, she found a friend and companion with whom she shared many interests. They enjoyed 17 happy years together sailing on their yacht, "Reflection," travelling the world and sharing their love of classical music and Christian faith. Joan's love of cottaging was fostered during her childhood summers at Bayfield, on Lake Huron. She brought this love to her family and had wonderful memories on both Steenburg and Limerick Lakes. In 1987 she acquired "a piece of Heaven" on Limerick Lake. This was her legacy, for nothing made Joan happier than to spend time with her husband, children and five grandchildren. She will be remembered for her playful sense of humour, unconditional love, inner strength, grace, beauty and quiet dignity. Joan's family wish to commend the outstanding and compassionate care given by Dr. R. LEVESQUE and the Belleville General Hospital oncology nurses, Dr. Ruth MATHIESON, Dr. Katherine ALLEN, Victorian Order of Nurses nurses Carol and Anne, and Red Cross worker Jolanta. The outpouring of love and support from Friends has also comforted us, and we thank in particular the Reverend Peter JOYCE, for whose spiritual guidance, gentle human touch and faith we will be forever grateful Saint Thomas' Anglican Church and its parishioners; Dr. and Mrs. Robert VAUGHAN, who opened their home and hearts to us; Dr. and Mrs. Bill BRUMMITT for their food and fellowship; Dr. Bob and Nancy ELGIE; Mr. and Mrs. Myles MORTON; Jane and Rick SPRAGUE and the many, many others who called, visited, sent flowers, food and prayers. The family will receive Friends at the Burke Funeral Home (613 968-6968), 150 Church Street Belleville on Friday from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. The funeral will take place at Saint Thomas' Anglican Church (corner of Bridge and Church St. Belleville) on Saturday, January 14, 2006 at 3: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family gratefully acknowledges donations to the Canadian Cancer Society in support of Colon Cancer Research.

Son's slaying stuns family
Boy, 17, beaten and stabbed in Flemingdon Park
'If you met Omar, he was hard not to like,' mother says
By Tracy HUFFMAN, Crime Reporter
When Joy WELLINGTON heard that a teenaged boy had been stripped, beaten and fatally stabbed last week, she wondered aloud to a friend, "When is this going to end?"
"I said that not knowing it was my son," says the mother of 17-year-old Omar, who was found dead in a wooded area in Flemingdon Park last Saturday.
The Toronto mother of four is overwhelmed with grief as she prepares to bury her son tomorrow.
"If you met Omar, he was hard not to like. Everyone liked him," she said in an interview with the Star at her Toronto home. WELLINGTON cannot imagine what could have started such a vicious attack, nor does she know why her son was in that neighbourhood.
"I am still shocked. How could people stand by and watch as my son was tortured for more than an hour?" she asks.
"No one should die like that," says long-time family friend Bernadine BOWEN.
"Strip off his clothes, beat him and stab him to make sure he's dead?"
Residents looked on while Omar was beaten some time between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. one week ago outside 61 Grenoble Dr., but no one called Homicide officers continue to investigate and have had some good co-operation from the community. Tonight, they will be in Flemingdon Park during the same hours the beating took place, handing out brochures and seeking more information about what happened.
Det. Scott SPRATT, of the homicide squad, said he is optimistic about the case and is pleased that he continues to get new information. He is currently investigating a number of motives behind the attack. Neighbours have reported that the teen robbed someone before he was killed.
Although grateful for the information that has come forward so far, WELLINGTON says she wonders why people who know what happened don't contact police.
"Too many people keep quiet in these situations. The code of silence is not cool. You don't have to release who you are, you can call Crime Stoppers," she says.
While the petite woman talks about her only son, she has no difficulty sharing the wonderful things she recalls about the teen, who loved rap and aspired to work in the music industry.
"If he was here right now, he'd make up a rap about the news," she says pointing to the large-screen television in the family room. "Music was his passion."
But WELLINGTON -- who is part-owner of a car and truck rental company -- admits she is in denial and, since his death she has called the Scarborough group home where Omar lived more than once hoping he would answer.
With only a few hours' sleep since SPRATT broke the news Monday of her son's death, WELLINGTON worries about how she will get through the next few days and stay strong for her daughters Tellisha, 19, Jannika, 11, and Arielle, 9.
Omar's father, who lives in Jamaica, is also in shock, she says, and thinks the system has failed their son.
After learning Omar was diabetic at the age of 12, WELLINGTON, then a single mother, called on the help of the children's aid society. She worried she wouldn't be able to manage Omar's medical needs while caring for her family.
Mother and son maintained a good relationship, she says, and talked every day.
WELLINGTON has no shortage of stories about Omar. Her face brightens and she smiles when she talks about the Saturday night spaghetti dinners where Omar would kick her out of the kitchen to make his "secret recipe" for the family.
She recalls that the family would camp out in front of the television watching movies and eating popcorn before everyone would fall asleep in the same room.
"He was a good brother to the girls. If a toy was broken, he wanted to fix it."
Omar loved basketball and joking around, says BOWEN.
When the two spoke last week BOWEN kept laughing, telling Omar he should become a comedian.
Visitation for Omar is today from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. at the Highland Funeral Home at 3280 Sheppard Ave. E. The funeral is at the same location at 11 a.m. tomorrow.
A trust fund has been set up to help pay funeral expenses.
Donations can be made at any TD Canada Trust, transit number 18572, account 6259967.
Anyone with information is asked to call the homicide squad at 416-808-7400 or Crime Stoppers at 416-222-8477.

SPRINGBETT o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2006-05-10 published
WALKER, Peter
By Heather MacANDREW and David SPRINGBETT, Page A16
Documentary cinematographer, husband, father. Born May 16, 1952, in London, England. Died November 4, 2005 in Ajax, Ontario, of cancer, aged 53.
A couple of months before he died, Peter WALKER found himself on the other side of a video camera being interviewed about the big subjects: life, death, love and cancer's impact on his life. Ever articulate, Peter spoke about facing death and what he wanted his last moments on Earth to be like. What caused him to falter, and his voice break, during this interview, was when he began to talk about his young daughters, and how becoming a father had profoundly transformed his life. It was working on a television series, Birth Stories, filming the births of complete strangers, that gradually turned this cool, hip, urban, childless man into a doting father at age 50.
Documentary work allows special entry into a multitude of situations, beliefs, countries and cultures most of us can only dream about. Peter was endlessly curious and that, along with his technical skill and artist's eye, made him a sought-after cinematographer in a competitive business.
But Peter's special gift was was the personal connection he was able to make with even the most reluctant subjects. Jackie, his partner, has observed that perhaps with the camera acting as a screen he could be open to intimacy with his subjects. That intimacy, along with Peter's ability to live in the moment while shooting, made for magic on the screen.
Peter and his sister Marilyn moved to Toronto from London, England, with their parents in 1957 when Peter was 4. They lost their mother to cancer when they were teenagers. As Marilyn remembers it, they didn't even know she was sick until she went into hospital and then a few days later they were at her funeral.
The way Peter handled his own illness was very different. He was completely open and willing to talk about what was happening to him; able to ask for and accept help.
Peter travelled the world with his work. He was an excellent and philosophical traveller even under the most arduous conditions. He always had half a dozen books in his extremely organized cases and he especially loved talking politics and conspiracy theories. It was during a shoot in Honduras that he first became aware that he was unwell. A biopsy after surgery confirmed bowel cancer.
He was by this time with Jackie FERRIER, the love of his life, filming the Birth Stories television series and planning their own family. The cancer seemed under control. Morgan was born in 2002. But the cancer came back, spreading to his abdominal cavity. Learning that the cancer was incurable and the prognosis bleak, they made the difficult decision to have another child. Taylor was born in January, 2005.
Last spring, a benefit honouring Peter's work was organized by Friends in the film industry. Pete was well enough to attend and watch a moving compilation video of his work that a colleague, Nick HECTOR, had assembled. During the evening Pete thanked many of the directors he had worked with over the years, not the least of whom was veteran filmmaker Allan King. Pete had shot Allan's Dying at Grace and had just completed Memory for Max, Claire, Ida and Company, Allan's most recent film. When it was premiered at the Toronto film Festival in September, 2005, Pete was only weeks away from death but he and Jackie made it to the screening.
Photographers and cinematographers have a special relationship to light. Peter took artistic risks with his work and often those risks were all about using the light in such a way as to make an image unforgettable. When Peter died, Jackie said Pete's head turned toward the light, just as he had wanted.
Heather and David are Friends of Peter.

There is no parting from those we love,
No distance can divide.

I have you, always in my heart.
