ALLEY, Peter Herbert Ruttan (1930-2006)
Peter died on December 29, 2006 in Brampton after complications from surgery for a broken hip. Peter had slipped on his driveway as he headed out to ski for the day. He was deeply loved by Daphne (YOUNG,) his wife of 51 years. He is missed and remembered with love by his children: Hugh (Diana), John (Helen), Ted (Ann), Kate (Steve), by his seven grandchildren: Rebecca and Ted; Jessie and Will; Evelyn and Larissa; and Zoë, by his sisters: Aileen M.D. HOWES and Frances M.

Peter exemplified life-long learning and encouraged this in his family and in his teaching. His life demonstrated the values that he prized: respect, responsibility, and kindness. He influenced many who came into his life, providing thoughtful counsel with a caring approach. Peter began his career as a "boy-auditor", received his C.A., moved into industry and then taught for twenty years at York University in the MBA program. In the past six years he has inspired an initiative to document and protect an important and previously unrecognized landscape in Ontario at the boundary between the Canadian Shield and the Great Lakes Basin - now called The Land Between. Daphne and the children are grateful for the care provided by the staff at Peel Memorial Hospital and the support and assistance of Friends at Caledon who have helped so much in the last few days. There will be a celebration of Peter's life at Trinity College Chapel, 6 Hoskin Avenue, Toronto on Thursday, January 4, 2007 at 2: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, contributions in his memory may be made to the charities that support his interest in the preservation of wild lands: The Land Between c/o Couchiching Conservancy, P.O.

SHUTLER, Richard Jr. (December 8, 1921-June 28, 2007)
Professor Emeritus, Simon Fraser University
Died peacefully on the evening of June 28th in the arms of his wife Jamie at Saint Paul's Hospital, Vancouver, after having had a stroke the same morning. Richard is survived by his second wife Jamie EVRARD, his first wife Mary Elizabeth 'Betty' SHUTLER with whom he had three children, sons John Hall and Richard Burnett, granddaughter Tessa Marie HOPLIN (James,) and sister Muriel Ericson (Roger) and predeceased by his daughter Kathryn ALLICE. A happy man who deeply loved and was loved by his family and Friends, Richard had a generous, collegial temperament and wide ranging interests in the field of archaeology and way beyond. Having spent over fifty years in the field, Richard seems to have lived many lives. Born in 1921 in Longmont, Colorado, he attended Salinas Jr. College, then inspired by the exploits of the famous paleontologist Roy Chapman Andrews in the Gobi desert he went on to get an Alberta and an M.A. in anthropology at U of California, Berkeley followed by a Ph.D. from U of Arizona in 1961. His education was interrupted by a stint in the Aleutian Islands as a diesel mechanic with the U.S. Army during the Second World War. Richard married Mary Elizabeth HALL in 1951 and soon after they went off to New Caledonia with E.W. Gifford, a legendary California archaeologist. Shortly after Richard became intensely interested in a pottery type that had begun to appear in some of the islands of the Pacific. This pottery, later dubbed 'Lapita', became perhaps the foremost tool that archeologists use in tracing man's early dispersal into the Pacific. Richard also did extensive archeological work in the American Great Basin, Hawaii, the Philippines where he married his second wife Jamie EVRARD, an artist whom he had met in Iowa in 1979, Vanuatu, the Gilbert Islands, Tubuai, Fefan Island, Truk, Fiji, China and most recently, Tonga. In 2005 the French Government feted Richard in Noumea, New Caledonia on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the discovery of Lapita pottery on that island. Two books were produced in his honor and archaeologists came from around the world to give papers in celebration of Richard's long career in Pacific archaeology. Richard maintained an office at Simon Fraser University until he died. Richard had many interests outside of archeology and especially enjoyed travelling to Italy with Jamie, buying and restoring a villa there, and collecting fresh figs. Richard lovvd expeditions, anything yellow, the opera, the novels of Joseph Conrad and Somerset Maugham, mango pudding, the paintings of Camille Pissarro and Picasso's huge steel sculptures, secret pockets in travel clothing, the Oakland Raiders, Beethoven's symphonies, chocolate milk shakes, Tiger Woods, and his gigantic and devoted cat Boodles. A memorial service will be held at 4: 30 p.m. on Thursday, September 20th at Simon Fraser University Harbour Centre, 515 West Hastings Street, Vancouver, British Columbia Gifts in Richard's memory gratefully received by the Healthy Heart Program at Vancouver General Hospital and University of British Columbia Hospital Foundation, 855 W. 12th Ave., Vancouver, British Columbia V5Z 1M9.

MOULTON, Albert John
Chosen child, husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, deacon with the Catholic Church, business executive, raconteur. Born October 27, 1925, in Toronto. Died March 6 in Brampton, Ontario, of complications from pneumonia, aged 81.
By David MOULTON, Page L12
Our father started life as George. He was born out of wedlock to Elsie ALLISON (his father was George SHONIKER.) He was adopted in January, 1927, by Bert and Catherine MOULTON, neighbours of the Allison family.
He maintained contact with his birth mother and their family throughout his life although he didn't say anything about it to his children while they were growing up. It was our sister Mary (as an adult) who identified "Aunt Elsie" as his birth mother.
He was a child during the Depression and deeply affected by the poverty his family faced because his father was unemployed. In 1943, he asked his father for permission to sign up for the war effort because he was underage at the time. Dad joined the Royal Canadian Navy and he worked as a stoker on the corvette Hawkesbury on the North Atlantic run.
Upon his return to civilian life in 1945, he took several jobs before finding his career in credit management. He was active in the credit industry, serving as president of the Toronto chapter of the Credit Institute of Canada. He was a contributing author to the textbook for credit education and spent many evenings marking exams from students taking correspondence courses. He received the designation Fellow of the Credit Institute in recognition of his contribution.
In 1949, he married Joan Elizabeth DAILEY and together they raised nine children. Mom stayed at home and Dad was the breadwinner. Our parents were not only busy raising a sizable family, but they were active in their church and the community.
Dad struggled with manic depression for most of his adult life. He went without medication until he was well into his 50s. The doctors focused on his depression and didn't recognize his "highs" - the other half of the illness. Our mother coped with his mood swings and managed to keep him out of harm's way. Lithium brought my father psychological stability in midlife.
In the early 1980s, Dad, with our mother's blessing, went back to school to train as a deacon with the Catholic Church; he was ordained in 1987 and retired in 2004.
In 1999, he received the International Year of Older Persons Award in Ontario. The citation noted that he was "a caring man whom many count on for help and support in difficult times." Dementia was his last challenge, and he was at times difficult to deal with, particularly when he moved into a care facility, but he kept his sense of humour until the end.

Mary Bates BURNS, 89: Swing singer
Mary Bates Burns was a hit with the troops and once turned down a date with Frank Sinatra
By Matthew CHUNG, Staff Reporter
She was a decorated World War 2 veteran with "perfect pitch."
Mary Bates BURNS went from making bottle tops in a factory to entertaining overseas troops with a featured singing role in the wartime revue "Meet the Navy."
She later shared stages, and radio waves, with legends of the swing era and, according to family lore, once rejected a romantic overture from Frank Sinatra.
"Mary never did make a big thing about her celebrity status," said her sister, Peg HARRIS, 85, from her home in Prince Edward Island. "She certainly was a celebrity in Toronto."
BATES BURNS performed for much of her career as Mary BATES but later took her second husband's surname. She died December 19 at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, after a brief illness, at age 89.
Born June 6, 1917 in Newcastle Upon Tyne, England, she moved with her family six years later to Toronto's east end, near Pape Ave. and Gerrard St. E.
Her voice got noticed by co-workers in a factory and they encouraged her to try out for a local quartet. She got the job and performed with Jack ALLISON, Bill BOUNSALL and Helen RICHARDSON as The Crushy Swingers, after a successful audition for Orange Crush Co.
They quickly made a splash in the Canadian music scene, garnering airplay on CFRB and being featured on a radio broadcast put on by The Toronto Star Fresh Air Fund.
The quartet was spotted that summer by Rudy Vallee, the famous 1930s American crooner known for singing through a megaphone, as they performed at the Canadian National Exhibition.
Impressed, Vallee asked the group to sing on his Thursday evening NBC radio show broadcast from New York.
The performance was such a success BATES BURNS and the others moved to the Big Apple and made more appearances on Vallee's show as The Swing Kids. They disbanded in the late 1930s, and she launched her solo career.
BATES BURNS appeared as a featured vocalist with many large swing orchestras including The Modernaires.
In front of a microphone, BATES BURNS was "Marvellous… she was just a natural," her sister said.
It was back in Toronto, at the Canadian National Exhibition around the start of World War 2, that BATES BURNS rubbed shoulders with Frank Sinatra, then in the early years of his career.
"I think the story was, he asked did she know where a guy could get a drink?" said BATES BURNS's daughter, Kate BURNS Rapley, in a phone interview from England.
"He then said was there any chance of him having some company with that drink?"
BATES BURNS, married at the time to musician Ken ADAMSON, declined. She and ADAMSON were later divorced.
BATES BURNS joined the Canadian navy in World War 2 as a member of the Women's Royal Canadian Naval Services. She was a featured act in the "Meet the Navy" musical show that entertained soldiers stationed across Canada.
It was a dangerous time and "sad too, because you lost so many Friends in those days," said another sister, Betty JESSHOPE, 82, from her home in Oakville.
In 1944, "Meet the Navy" went overseas, playing around England. During a five-month run at London's Hippodrome theatre in 1945, the show received a rave from Beverley Baxter in the London Evening Standard.
"You don't have to visit the Hippodrome out of any sense of duty," she wrote. "The Canadian Navy has sailed up the Thames and London is its prisoner."
JESSHOPE said servicemen turned out to be an appreciative audience for her sister.
"In the navy show, the first time (BATES BURNS) sang… I think they had a hard time getting (soldiers) to shut up," JESSHOPE said, "because the young men just kept clapping her on."
After the war, "Meet the Navy" was shot as a film in Britain with BATES BURNS as a featured vocalist.
England also provided her with a second husband, accomplished saxophone player Bob BURNS, whom she wed in 1948. BATES BURNS performed there in 1950 with orchestra leader Bert Ambrose at Ciro's, a popular nightclub of the time. The pair had a son, Rob, in 1948, and daughter Kate in 1952.
BATES BURNS retired from singing professionally soon after the birth of her daughter and, around the same time, was divorced from BURNS.
She returned to Canada and worked as an electrologist for a while, moved back to England for a few years in the 1970s and then came back to Canada for good.
"I think she was never really sure where she wanted to be," said Kate. "She had gone back and forth all her life."
In fact, BATES BURNS made one last trip across the Atlantic in August, paying a three-week visit to Kate and her three children.
"She was very bright, she had all her faculties," said Kate.
BATES BURNS remained close with many Friends from the swing era, including composer Robert Farnon and Bert Pearl, bandleader on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio's popular program The Happy Gang.
And she still loved to sing when together with family. "I don't think she ever appreciated how good (a vocalist) she was herself," JESSHOPE said.
