CHAPMAN, Herb
Died at Sunnybrook Health Science Centre on October 17, 2006, from complications related to Parkinson's disease. He had lived in the Veterans Wing at Sunnybrook since 2002. Herb was born in Tipperary, Ireland, in 1921 and moved to Canada in 1925. He was raised in Edmonton, Alberta, and enlisted with the Air Force at Fort William in the 418 Edmonton Squadron of the Royal Canadian Air Force, serving overseas from 1942 to 1946. On his return he attended Queen's University, graduating in 1950 as a metallurgical engineer. In 1968 he earned his Master's of Science at the University of Cincinnati. Herb is survived by his wife Edith (née THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON,) daughter Kit, son-in-law Bob ZACHARY, sisters Betty, Doreen and Kathleen, and his sister-in-law Jean. He was predeceased by siblings George, Michael, Thomas, Christina McBRATNEY, Mabel, Robert, Doris CAMPBELL and William. Music was important to Herb throughout his life. Even recently he still filled the halls of Sunnybrook with his glorious tenor voice, somewhat marred by Parkinson's but full of his love of music. A special thanks to the doctors and nurses who cared for him in emergency and the Intensive Care Unit in his last few days and to the nurses and staff of K3C during his years in the Veterans Wing. The family will receive Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), Toronto, on Sunday, October 22, from 2: 00 until 5:30 p.m. The funeral service will be held in the chapel on Monday, October 23rd, at 11: 00 a.m. Private interment. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to organizations that were important to Herb, Sunnybrook Foundation, Pastoral Services Fund and the Parkinson Society Canada.

LANDON, Ryan
The family of the late Ryan LANDON wish to extend heartfelt thanks and appreciation to our dear relatives, Friends, neighbours and the community for their floral tributes, monetary donations, cards, letters and drawings, photographs and videos, phone calls, food, expressions of sympathy and all acts of kindness in the recent loss of our cherished son and brother, Ryan. Special thanks to Father Jim CARR who supported us at the hospital with his prayers and presence, his regular visits and his comforting words the Saint_James Anglican Church Women, choir, and members of Saint_James Anglican Church for the beautiful memorial service and their continued care and concern. Thank you to Doug and Janet DYNES at the McBeath-Dynes Funeral Home for providing a warm and comforting environment in which to celebrate Ryan's life. Special thanks to Doctor McBRIDE and staff at Alexandra Hospital in Ingersoll, Dr. GAN and staff at London Health Sciences Centre-Victoria Campus and Doctor CORDOTTO and staff at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto, for their amazing expertise and excellent care and support for Ryan and our family. Thanks to the Ingersoll Fire Service, Oxford County Emergency Medical Services and the Oxford Ontario Provincial Police for their quick response and care. Sincere thanks to Ted WALKER and Ryan FURNANDIZ for their bravery -- for giving us the opportunity and honour to personally say goodbye to Ryan. A genuine thank you to our special "ninjas" and "angels" who supported us daily and continue to hold us up -- words can never express how we feel. Heartfelt thanks to Ryan's loving family, godparents, Friends, pallbearers, co-workers and Seiwa-Kai Karate family who personally shared in celebrating Ryan's life through their presence, memorials, inspirational words and comforting support. We have been blessed in so many ways. Ryan magically touched several lives in his short adventure with us -- both young and old. His discipline for karate led him to earn his 3rd dan black belt; to achieve the title of Sensei and to become a teacher to others -- not only in karate but in life as well. Ryan's passion for magic also lifted the spirits and minds of those who had the honour of watching him perform. His gift to make everyone smile and laugh, and his strong yet gentle heart will forever be remembered. We miss you Ryan! Toddles! Love Davis, Deb, Kristy and Corey.

LINDSAY, John W. Sr.
It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden passing of John W. LINDSAY Sr. on May 5, 2006 due to complications from lung cancer. Born in Brooklyn, New York on June 2, 1926 to Harry Dayton LINDSAY and Ellen Arlene McBRINE, John grew up in Woodstock, New Brunswick. He served in the Canadian Army where a chance meeting with a fellow soldier changed his life. There he met an older man who advised him to become an engineer and see the world. He entered Dalhousie University with the Veterans' Program and there he met his lifelong love and partner, Marjorie A. LANGIN whom he married in 1948. He graduated with an Engineering Diploma in 1949 and went on to attend Nova Scotia Technical College where, in 1951, he earned a Bachelor of Civil Engineering. While studying engineering he was awarded the Bob Waters Award as most outstanding engineer and was President of his engineering class. John lived a fully balanced life. In business, he was a visionary developer and partner and mentor for small businesses and a corporate leader in large enterprises. In community life, he was a passionate volunteer, advisor and fund raiser. In his personal life, he was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, friend and lifelong fitness participant, sports fan and lover of music. As a developer his first project was the Strawberry Hill Street lands in North Halifax. He then built and leased the first multiple occupancy building in the Burnside Industrial Park and went on to develop millions of square feet of commercial buildings in the 'Park.' He also built and developed industrial buildings in Saint_John's, Newfoundland. His crowning achievement was the Purdy's Wharf office project on the waterfront of downtown Halifax. The leading office project in Atlantic Canada, it was technically innovative and remains the architectural signature of the Halifax skyline. John loved to partner and mentor in the creation of new businesses. These included steel and plastic piping, electrical motor rewinding, container repair, marine electric, mobile catering, pipe cleaning and repair, hazardous waste handling, equipment rentals, environmental, demolition earth work, tennis, squash and racquetball clubs, mathematical software, point of sale promotion and driving ranges. Beyond the success and failure of these businesses, he valued his ongoing relationship with each of his partner entrepreneurs. As a corporate leader he gave valued direction to national and regional companies. For a decade, he was chairman of Maritime Life following long service on the mortgage committee. He was a director of Canada Trust and its predecessor Canada Permanent Trust. He was a multi-decade director of Corporate Communications (now Colours), a director of Maritime Telephone and Telegraph (predecessor to Aliant) and was Chairman of the Halifax Shipyards. He was co-founder and Chairman of Atlantic Industries. John believed deeply in the Young Men's Christian Association of Greater Halifax/Dartmouth and the IWK Hospital and volunteered for both all of his adult life. At the Young Men's Christian Association, he was a volunteer, a member, an ambassador, a philanthropist and never ending steward. He joined the Board in the early 60s and remained as a Director until 1971. He actively participated in every Young Men's Christian Association fund raising campaign from 1970 to present. He served as a board member of the IWK Children's Hospital for more than ten years, leading major capital campaigns and was the co-leader of the amalgamation of the IWK and the Grace Hospital. John was also the founding chair of the IWK Foundation. In the 1970s he served on the Halifax Board of Trade including acting as Chairman in 1977. He also performed significant fund raising for his alma mater, Dalhousie University, and for a number of years served on its Board of Governors. John received recognition for his efforts in the community and in business. In 1984 he became the first recipient of the Halifax Young Men's Christian Association Red Triangle Award for outstanding community service. In 1991 he earned an Honourary Doctorate of Engineering from Technical University of Nova Scotia. He was named a Dalhousie Outstanding Alumnus and was also an honourary life member of the Association of Professional Engineers of Nova Scotia. He was inducted into the Nova Scotia Business Hall of Fame in 2004 and in 2005 was appointed to the Young Men's Christian Association Fellowship of Honour in a ceremony on Parliament Hill. In his personal life he made regular fitness an integral part of his day to day routine. He had played varsity football, rugby and boxing during his university years. He attended the Young Men's Christian Association advanced fitness class for three decades, leading the class each year on his birthday from age 60 to 72. He loved both the workout and the camaraderie. He and Marge enjoyed their lifelong couple Friends and he also enjoyed Boys Night Out, poker club and the Eager Beaver Investment club. John followed all sports avidly and was a true music lover. He did not prefer any particular genre, all he liked was 'good music' of all types. His deepest passions were reserved for his wife, his children and his grandchildren. He is survived by his wife Marjorie, son John (Anne CAMPBELL,) daughter Deborah (Luca ROTTA- LORIA,) grandchildren Jason, Andreas, Lauren, Alexander and Nicolas and step granddaughter Emma. The family would like to invite all those who wish to join in the celebration of his life to a reception on Monday, May 8 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on the wharf at Purdy's Wharf. A Funeral service will be held on Tuesday, May 9 at 2 p.m., at First Baptist Church, 1300 Oxford Street, Halifax., Reverend Tim MacFarlane officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Young Men's Christian Association of Greater Halifax/Dartmouth or the IWK Foundation.
