VAS, Stephen (1926-2006)
A Pioneer In Peritoneal Dialysis, Professor Of Microbiology And Medicine University Of Toronto
Stephen was born on June 4, 1926, as the second child after his sister Veronika, in Budapest. His father was the shopkeeper and owner of a hardware store in central Budapest. After receiving his High School diploma from the Fasor Gymnasium in the Spring of 1944, he was taken right away into a Nazi labour camp in the southeast part of Hungary. Subsequent to the liberation of Romania, Stephen escaped the camp and fled to Bucharest. He originally planned to study physics, yet when the Hungarian University in Cluj (Kolozsvár) opened, he started studying medicine as this was the only discipline offered. After the war finished in Hungary, Stephen returned to Budapest in 1945 and continued his studies there. He received his M.D. in 1950. As a young doctor, Stephen worked in various hospitals and public health research institutes. He also spent three years in the military as an immunologist, and focused on epidemic control and microbiology. Stephen married Dr. Magdalena RADITZ in 1954. In 1956 he received his 'Candidacy' (PhD). The same year, Stephen and Magdalena fled Hungary to Vienna, where Stephen received a Rockefeller Scholarship to go to Montreal. Three years later, he started teaching at McGill medicine and microbiology. Five years before leaving Montreal, Stephen became the chairman of the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at McGill. In 1977, Magdalena and Stephen moved to Toronto, where he became Chief of Microbiology and Magdalena joined the hematology department of the Toronto Western Hospital. Stephen VAS when he moved from Montreal to Toronto to become our Microbiologist-in-Chief, he helped us immensely in the diagnosis of treatment of peritonitis in patients on Chronic Peritoneal Dialysis and he applied his vast knowledge of microbiology and infectious diseases to the care of his patients. He was one of the first to study the inflammatory response of the peritoneal cavity and he went around the world lecturing on the principles of treatment of the infectious complications of peritoneal dialysis. Until the end of his life, he was available and gave his opinion freely about these difficult problems to people who called from around the world. He cared deeply for his patients who literally adored him, especially the women, who felt so comfortable with his compassionate care. After his retirement, he was happy looking after peritoneal dialysis patients who were totally attached to him. He was always available to the nurses day or night, whenever they needed his advice. Unfortunately five years ago, Magdalena died and Stephen became quite depressed, although he never let his feelings show during our daily interactions. However, at the end his loneliness became quite strong, and the attraction of his family and his roots were so strong that he decided to return to Budapest. He was excited by the fact that not only the physicians and nurses there but even the Government officials held him in great respect. He supported with all his strength the Nephrology department of Saint Margit Hospital in Budapest. He was deeply involved in teaching, something that he always enjoyed. Stephen died on the 14th of October 2006.

Crash kills two: Single-vehicle accident may have occurred hours before wreckage found
By Sharon WEATHERALL, Monday, April 17, 2006
Craigleith - Speed and alcohol contributed to a fatal collision which killed two Toronto teenagers on the Easter weekend, police say.
The wrecked car with two bodies was found early Saturday morning near Craigleith on Highway 26 near what police called "a bad corner."
Dead are Mykata VASLYNKO, 18, and his passenger Natalie HINCU, Speed and alcohol were both contributing factors in the fatal collision, Collingwood Ontario Provincial Police said in a news release Sunday.
The single motor vehicle accident happened just west of Craigleith Provincial Park. The scene was discovered by a local resident as he pulled off the road onto the shoulder to turn into his driveway at about 7 a.m. He called for help and Collingwood Ontario Provincial Police and Georgian Ambulance responded.
The exact time of the accident is unknown, but sons of the man who called police told their mother they heard a huge crash at about 11 p.m. the night before during a thunder and lightning storm.
Believing the noise was thunder, they did not investigate.
Constable Mark KINNEY of the Huronia West Ontario Provincial Police said police were still investigating.
The 1997 black Ford Probe skidded an estimated 200 metres before going into the ditch on the north side of the road where it hit a tree. The resulting crash sent pieces of the car a few hundred feet. The tree broke in half.
Police crews were still at the scene at 1 p.m. Sunday and Highway 26 was closed between Craigleith park and Grey Road 40 for several hours.
