Also thanks to Ted and Phyllis HAYES and all the residents of Hayes Crescent Apartments for their caring compassion and support. In honour of Ray's request there will be no funeral services. But we leave you with this. When I come to the end of the road And the sun has set for me I want no rites in a gloom filled room Why cry for a soul set free. Miss me a little… but not too long And not with your head bowed low. Remember the love that we once shared Miss me… but let me go. For this is a journey that we all must take And each must go alone. It's all part of the Master's plan A step on the road to home. When you are lonely and sick at heart Go to the Friends we know And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds Miss me, but let me go.

WHITTAKER, Herbert, 95
Globe's drama critic created Theatre Museum
By Jan WONG
Herbert WHITTAKER, The Globe's drama critic for 26 years, died Saturday in Toronto, 11 days before his 96th birthday.
He died of natural causes, said Kate BARRIS, a friend.
Unusually for a critic, he also designed sets and directed. In 1950, Toronto's theatre community was so small -- some would say incestuous -- that he created the sets for, and then reviewed, Morley Callaghan's Going Home. The last line of his review said, "The settings were adequate." When it came to the work of others, he was more generous. Donald Sutherland credits a favourable WHITTAKER review of a University of Toronto production with helping him decide to pursue an acting career.
Born in Montreal on September 20, 1910, Mr. WHITTAKER worked for The Gazette as a drama critic. He joined The Globe in 1949 and remained its drama critic until his mandatory retirement at 65 in 1976.
Mr. WHITTAKER, who never married, continued to freelance even after The Globe once inadvertently referred to him as "the late Herbert WHITTAKER." He was the recipient of a Silver Ticket Award, which entitled him to free tickets for life. He also devoted himself to creating Theatre Museum Canada. It remains without a home.

Herbert WHITTAKER, Theatre Critic And Writer: (1910-2006)
He discovered theatre in London as a boy during the First World War and was forever smitten by a love for the stage
By Alex DOBROTA with files by the late Donn DOWNEY and Jan WONG, Page S9
Toronto -- He imagined himself a war correspondent on a battlefield, writing about costumed soldiers that bled emotions on a stage. But the struggle that Herbert Whittaker documented and supported for almost half a decade was a real one. As The Globe and Mail's emeritus drama critic until 1975, Mr. WHITTAKER found himself on the front lines of the creation of a distinct Canadian theatre.
And much like the war correspondent who sometimes feels compelled to pick up a rifle in the thick of battle, Mr. WHITTAKER never shied away from using his pen to forward the cause he embraced since early childhood.
"Canadian critics tend to be crusaders," he wrote in a 1985 article. "Their very occupation determines this."
Indeed, when Mr. WHITTAKER, a tall and courtly man, started his career at the Montreal Gazette in 1935, theatre was not high on the national agenda. The country had to survive the rest of the Depression and the Second World War before Canadian theatre came of age in 1953 with the Stratford Shakespearian Festival.
It opened in a big tent and Mr. WHITTAKER was there on behalf of The Globe. He had been with the paper for just four years. "The most exciting night in the history of Canadian theatre," he wrote after the festival's first production, Richard III.
His enthusiasm did not diminish over the years. When he retired, Mr. WHITTAKER was invited to Stratford to accept a gift from the festival. He was offered a prop from any of its productions and, in a rare moment of practicality, he chose the sword used by Alec Guinness, who appeared as Richard in 1953. "I knew his sword, being a hard object, was likely in good repair," Mr. WHITTAKER said. He also wanted something that was closely associated with the event.
Some said Mr. WHITTAKER's reviews were too kind -- less than satisfactory for the theatregoer who wanted to know if a play was worth the price of a ticket. But Toronto readers had the advantage of placing his review alongside the one in The Toronto Star. Its critics, most notably Nathan COHEN, had the reputation of being cold and analytical, and the intelligent reader learned how to strike a balance between the two.
Mr. WHITTAKER offered further reasons to explain the differences. The Star was then an afternoon paper so it could not echo The Globe's review, which appeared in the morning. And Mr. WHITTAKER tended to put positive impressions in his first paragraphs. The Star tended to do the reverse. "I was trying to build up Canadian theatre," Mr. WHITTAKER said in a 1999 interview.
He covered drama with the zeal of an evangelist, showing up at The Globe in the early afternoon to write a chatty, name-dropping column or a weekend feature. He would then return in the evening, Sundays included, to write a thoughtful review for a deadline usually less than an hour away.
The computer had not come of age and his typewritten copy looked like a crossword puzzle with unreadable inserts scribbled in by hand. The reviews were the dismay of the copy editors but represented, given the time constraints, a minor journalistic miracle.
While he covered the theatrical mainstream, he paid equal attention to the smaller theatres, where he would see untried, but promising, Canadian performers and, quite frequently, a play that was making its Canadian debut. He also drew no distinction between amateur and professional performances. "In certain instances, some of the best work is done by amateurs," he said.
Herbert WHITTAKER fell under the spell of stage performance as a boy growing up in London, England. With his family, he moved there before the outbreak of the First World War and events had transpired to keep them on the wrong side of the Atlantic until peace returned. Pantomime fascinated him, as did the antics of Elsie Janis, the musical comedy star who entertained British troops.
After the war, Mr. WHITTAKER's family returned to Montreal, where the theatre scene offered little or no Canadian content and most productions were imported from England or the U.S. With great delight, Mr. WHITTAKER discovered John Martin-Harvey's rendition of Hamlet, an experience that would leave an indelible mark on the rest of his life.
"Young as he was, these experiences shaped his critical standards throughout his career and it is remarkable how often his reviews harken back to Martin-Harvey…" Anton Wagner wrote in Establishing Our Boundaries -- English-Canadian Theatre Criticism.
But for all his love of drama, Mr. WHITTAKER shunned the stage, opting instead for positions as speech writer and art director during his school years at Strathcona Academy in the Outremont neighbourhood of Montreal. As a boy growing up in Outremount, he once played the Toff, a crime solver, in a performance staged in the hall of a local church -- an experience he qualified as the peak of his acting career. He was never seen on a theatre stage again. "I was too shy," he said. "Then I got tall and gangly and started wearing these glasses."
He dropped out of school around the age of 16 to help his family make a living during the harsh years of the Depression. He took up a job as an office clerk with the Canadian Pacific Railway in Montreal's Windsor Station.
But his fascination with theatre never subsided.
"I'm afraid I cheated the Canadian Pacific Railway, for I eventually discovered that by going down to the stacks to search out invoices, I could find time to design costumes for church plays," he would later write in a book about the Montreal theatre scene.
He quit his job in 1935. That same year, he started working at the Gazette as a junior critic who was responsible for just about everything.
And by the late 1930s, he was directing plays in Montreal, taking some of them to the Dominion Drama Festival. He was also designing sets for Montreal productions.
When the Second World War broke out, the army rejected him for military service, mainly because of his less-than-perfect eyesight and because of his somewhat frail physical condition,
"As WHITTAKER recalls, he was rejected for military service," University of Waterloo English professor Rota LISTER once wrote. "[He] did not much care whether it was because he had diminished eye sight, a weak heart or varicose veins; he was simply relieved and let his soldier brother defend the values of civilization while he battled on for Canadian theatrical culture."
For all that, he viewed his work as a theatre critic for The Gazette as a contribution to the war effort. He praised the verve of two Canadian troop shows meant to entertain Allied soldiers, Meet the Navy and Army Show. "His wartime reviews do not seem out of place in The Gazette of the time, rubbing shoulders with news flashes from the front and wartime propaganda," Mr. Wagner wrote.
In 1949, Mr. WHITTAKER joined The Globe as its theatre and film critic and began his long association with the University of Toronto as a director and designer.
At times, he reviewed the plays he directed. In 1950, for instance, he worked on the set design for Going Home, a play written by Morley Callaghan and performed by the New Play Society. He later reviewed the performance for The Globe and Mail. The article's last line read: "The settings were adequate."
He might have chosen either critic or designer as a career but thoughts of a regular pay cheque decided the issue. The remuneration for a designer or director was, at best, a modest honorarium, while newspapers put their contributors on a payroll -- $35 a week to start, in Mr. WHITTAKER's case.
His salary must have improved over the years because when he arrived in Toronto he discovered there were few restaurants that matched what he had grown accustomed to in Montreal. Winston's was one of the few exceptions and Mr. WHITTAKER adopted it. The actors who were appearing at the Royal Alexandra Theatre down the street followed suit and it became the restaurant of the celebrities.
The names of the theatrical giants fell easily from his lips. He said the actor Sir John Gielgud helped him get the job with The Globe by describing Mr. WHITTAKER as "the only intelligent theatre critic in Canada." The favourable notice from Sir John came after Mr. WHITTAKER had bestowed a favourable notice for one of Sir John's performances.
In 1961, Mr. WHITTAKER designed the sets for the 1961-62 season of the Canadian Players, an offshoot of the festival that toured Canada with the classics and provided winter work for some Stratford performers.
King Lear was included in the company's season and Mr. WHITTAKER, who had designed Lear productions twice before, decided to move the play out of ancient Britain into a Far North setting. The set design was serviceable, a bare-bones portable affair that relied on colour to match the mood of the play.
Over the years, Mr. WHITTAKER's name was attached to countless productions as either the director or designer. He had a separate career as an adjudicator with the Dominion Drama Festival's regional festivals and other productions. The Encyclopedia Britannica and the Encyclopedia Americana both asked him for special articles which he supplied.
He was also a frequent recipient of theatrical awards and picked up honorary doctorate degrees in arts from York University and McGill University in Montreal.
In 1976, he was made an Officer of the Order of Canada. The accompanying citation read: "actor, adjudicator, director and drama critic, whose contributions to the theatre in Canada are legion."!
Long after he retired, Mr. WHITTAKER continued writing theatre reviews and other various articles for The Globe and Mail, The New York Times and the Herald Tribune. He also authored or co-authored as many as six books, including one about Winston's, the restaurant he so often frequented.
And, in the early 1980s, he shouldered the task of founding the Theatre Museum of Canada. "Nobody could talk to him for more than 30 seconds without talking about the theatre museum," recalled Kate Barris, now the museum's president.
The museum was established in 1992 and, over the following years, Mr. WHITTAKER would donate much of his memorabilia collection hundreds of items that included play bills, portraits of artists and even Alec Guinness's sword.
"Theatre was his life," said Kate Barris, the museum's president. "He had many Friends but his main love was the theatre."
In 1999, Mr. WHITTAKER wrote Setting the Stage, which documents Montreal English theatre from 1920 to 1949. The book opens with a sentence that could very well encapsulate the driving force behind its author's career: "In many countries, no matter how thinly populated, no matter how widely scattered across a continent, people must eventually produce their own theatre, as objects on a landscape must produce their own shadows."
But for all his love for Canadian theatre, Mr. WHITTAKER also enjoyed Western European productions. In his free time, he travelled to England, France and Spain in search of the local flavour producers and theatres bring to classical plays there. In one 1978 adventure unrelated to theatre, he visited China at a time when outsiders were seldom seen. His experiences left him somewhat rueful: "A much-travelled man may be a well-travelled man but not necessarily a man who travels well," he later wrote in an article in The Globe that appeared under the headline "What went wrong."
Herb WHITTAKER never married. Before he moved into a retirement home in 2003, he spent two years at Toronto's Performing Arts Lodge on The Esplanade, where married couples are allocated to two bed-room apartments. Mr. WHITTAKER was hoping for an extra room to use as his study. He argued his case, telling staff that he was married to his work. "He only got one bedroom," said Ms. Barris. "It didn't work."
And, as Mr. WHITTAKER's living quarters shrank, the museum's collection swelled with his donations. He kept his typewriter, though, which often clanked away in his room as he crafted letters to Friends and acquaintances the world over.
Well into his 90s, Mr. WHITTAKER continued to attend theatre performances. He was a familiar sight at Toronto premieres and at theatre festivals in Stratford and Niagara.
In 2002, when he attended a Chekhov play at SoulPepper Theatre Company, director Albert Shultz led the crowd in a standing ovation to mark Mr. WHITTAKER's 91st birthday.
"He was quite moved," Ms. Barris said.
By all accounts, he last saw a play the following year when he watched Richard McMillan perform in Through the Eyes at The Factory Theatre Company. Soon thereafter, his frail health confined him to his retirement home on St. George Street, where he continued reading theatre reviews.
"Herb's passing really marks the end of a certain generation in Canadian theatre," Phillip SILVER, Dean of the Faculty of Fine Arts of York University wrote in a statement. "He had a view of our history that no one else will ever have. And on top of that all, he was truly a gentleman."
Herbert WHITTAKER was born in Montreal September 20, 1910. He died of natural causes in Toronto on Saturday.

KING, John Lee
By Robert KING, Page A16
Architect, father, grandfather. Born November 17, 1929, in China. Died August 31, in Toronto, of cancer complications, aged 76.
John Lee KING was born the youngest of seven siblings and the only sibling born in China; the rest were born in Canada. John was born when his parents Lee KING and Chen Hong Yee had taken their children back to China for a two-year visit with their Popo (grandmother). Because of Canada's Chinese Exclusion Act of 1923, John could not be brought to Canada when the family returned and so he was left in the care of his grandmother. This caused John's parents great distress. Fortunately, they owned a Chinese laundromat in Burlington, Ontario, patronized by Member of Parliament Hughes CLEAVER; he used his influence on their behalf with the result that John became one of only 44 legal Chinese immigrants allowed into Canada between 1923 and 1947. Upon John's arrival his parents would not allow him to speak Chinese at home; his father insisted that he become assimilated. In later years, he would rue the fact that he could not speak Chinese as well as his older siblings.
During the war years, the family moved to Aurora, where his parents bought a restaurant called Dan's Café on Yonge Street; a favourite stop for servicemen en route to and from Camp Borden. Typically, all of the children were required to work in the restaurant. However, John, being the youngest, often was not relied upon as much as his siblings, and was able to sneak out to play sports. Like many immigrant families, John's parents did not see any value in sports but no one was more proud when John's midget hockey team won a championship.
In the late summer of 1948 John's parents sold the restaurant and moved to Toronto where he went from being a top student to being kicked out of Jarvis Collegiate. His father almost disowned him as he was hanging out in pool halls. Fortunately, he was also hanging out with his best friend Philip QUAN, a top art student at Central Tech Collegiate; it was during this time John met Norma WONG, a pretty cheerleader at Central Tech. John straightened up and became an independent student, eventually entering the School of Architecture at University of Toronto.
While in university John married Norma and celebrated the birth of his first child, Karen. At first John faced financial difficulty supporting a young family and coping with large school debts. John's parents put a down-payment on a house in Etobicoke and handed the mortgage to John and Norma. It all seemed so daunting until one day, as John was returning home from work, he had a revelation: He should go to the racetrack. So he did. It turned out to be most fortunate, as John won enough that night to pay off all of his debts and then some. He came home to Norma and threw the piles of money on the bed. He never again went back to the racetrack.
John went to work at three different firms before finally ending up at Bregman and Hamann in 1964 where he worked on the Skyline Tower in Niagara Falls, The Toronto-Dominion Centre, the Scarborough Town Centre and First Canadian Place, Canada's tallest skyscraper.
From 1984 until 1993, John was the managing partner and chairman of the board of Bregman and Hamann. During this period, the firm completed several projects abroad as well as BCE Place and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Broadcasting Centre.
John retired in 1994 and he and Norma, (by this time a successful and renowned interior designer) spent most of their winters in Ajijic, Mexico.
John passed away unexpectedly. His outstanding career has left a lasting physical mark on a number of cityscapes, and his charming personality and gentle, gracious manner made a lasting impression on the lives of his Friends and family.
Robert KING is John Lee KING's son.

Methadone pharmacist passes away
Wing WONG accused by regulatory board
Dispensing habits were under fire
By Brian WHITWHAM, Special To The Star
To a regulatory body, Wing WONG's methadone distribution network put recovering heroin addicts at risk. But, to others, he was a hero who strived to help Ontario addicts find a better life.
WONG, who owned pharmacies in Kitchener, Guelph and Hanover with wife Susan, died either Sunday night or early yesterday. The exact time and cause were unknown at press time.
The Ontario College of Pharmacists had accused WONG of overbilling for methadone dispensing and "disgraceful, dishonourable or unprofessional" conduct. The college also alleged WONG broke rules that ensure methadone is administered safely. The rules had stated that methadone must be provided to patients in person by licensed pharmacists.
WONG always denied any wrongdoing. His disciplinary hearing before the college was scheduled for October and November.
WONG was featured in a Toronto Star investigation earlier this year that examined serious problems with methadone distribution and triggered a provincial government review. The series outlined WONG's exclusive right to supply methadone and other drugs to a chain of clinics called Ontario Addiction Treatment Centres. Doses were delivered by courier to clinics where staff supervised addicts' methadone intake. WONG made financial investments in the clinics and bought medical software sold by Ontario Addiction Treatment Centres's founders.
Ontario Addiction Treatment Centres co-founder Doctor Jeff DAITER called WONG a pioneering "maverick" who made it easier for thousands of people to kick their addictions. WONG was ordered in March to stop shipping methadone but the college issued an "interim" policy allowing him to continue provided Ontario Addiction Treatment Centres doctors got a federal exemption so they could delegate methadone dispensing to a "qualified person."

WONNACOTT, Betty
In loving memory of a dear Wife, Mother and Grandmother, Betty, who passed away 19 years ago December 25, 1987. Christmas comes with sad regret The month, the day, we will never forget. So many things have happened Since you were called away So many things to share with you Had you been left to stay. We often lay awake at night When the world is fast asleep And take a walk down memory lane With tears upon our cheeks. Remembering is easy We do it every day But missing you is a heartache That never goes away. We hold you close within our hearts And there you shall remain To walk with us throughout our lives Until we meet again. Sadly missed by Jack, Roy, John, Jo Ann, Bob, Ralph, Shelley and families
