BLACK, Kenneth James
Died on August 11, 2007 at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto from complications following pneumonia. Loving husband of Mary, who predeceased him in 1976, a devoted father to Amy and grandfather to Theo BROOKE, born August 2006; he was adored by Amy, Theo and son-in-law Stephen BROOKE. His sister-in-law Marjorie BLACK, nieces and nephew Cathy, Diane and Norm BLACK, great-nephew Gregory BLACK and great-niece Jacqueline BLACK, cousins Michel JONES, Stephen and Stuart THURSBY, Wendy and Bill KREVER, and Natalie COYLE were all dear members of his family in Ontario. He will be greatly missed by all his family from Winnipeg: brother-in-law Alfred KAYE, nephews and nieces John, Kathie, Gordon and Jeanne KAYE; great-nieces and great-nephews Liz, Cameron, Donna, Michael, and Michele KAYE, Michael PURVES- SMITH and Robert POHL. Ken was also a dear and caring uncle to niece Nicola IVANOVIC, nephews David and Neil CHAPMAN, great-nieces Natasha and Isabella IVANOVIC and Jessica CHAPMAN, all of Merseyside, England; he was a cherished brother-in-law to Rosemarie CHAPMAN and Dennis CHAPMAN, also of Merseyside. He was predeceased by his sister, Elizabeth, and brothers Ralph and Arthur, and by his nieces Jacqueline BLACK and Margaret KAYE. Ken's strong sense of loyalty and fun animated a wide circle of Friends in Canada and in England over his entire life.
Ken was born in Winnipeg on May 10, 1924, the youngest of Norman and Margaret BLACK's four children. He attended the University of Manitoba and served in the Royal Canadian Navy in corvettes during the Second World War. After the war, he became a journalist, first working at the Winnipeg Free Press and the Winnipeg Tribune then spending time in Europe and England for Reuters. In 2006, he published a memoir of his adventures during and after the war entitled Telling It Like It Was. He joined the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in 1957 where he worked, in both radio and television, for over 35 years, in London, England, Saint John's, Newfoundland and Toronto. After his retirement he dedicated himself to his many interests, including travelling, writing, neighbourhood activism, birdwatching and his legendary annual Victoria Day Party.
Ken brought an unrivalled joy to life and touched everyone he met with this enthusiasm and with his charm and humour. He was a true gentleman, but with a wry and sometimes mischievous outlook. Ken had the gift of treating everyone with the same gracious manner. As the countless guests to his house will attest, he was the soul of hospitality. He was as happy playing with children as entertaining adults and will be remembered by a number of generations as the delightful and engaged grown-up always ready with wind-up toys, kites, stories and songs. His interests were eclectic, but they were bound together by an unceasing curiosity and energy. Ken was the cherished heart of a number of social worlds and families. He will be sorely missed. A memorial service will be held on Friday, August, 17, 2007 at 3: 00 p.m. at Enoch Turner Schoolhouse, 106 Trinity Street (one block east of Parliament, just south of King Street East, Toronto). In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Ken's memory to the Bruce Trail Association.

SPANJER, David Lucien (1922-2007)
After complications following hip surgery that was necessary after a fall during his most recent project. He leaves his wife of 53 years Ella, his daughters Linda and Hellen, his sons-in-law Steve WHITE/WHYTE and Paul HARVEY, and his grandchildren Christie, Loren, Jason, David, Bruce, and grand-dogs Spike and Sam.
Born within the sound of the Bow Bells of Saint Mary's, David enlisted in World War 2 at the tender age of 17. His wartime experiences and admiration for Winston Churchill would shape the rest of his life. His proficiency with motors and a lifelong love affair with cars led him to complete an engineering degree and even build his own car. With his wife Ella, David emigrated to Canada in 1956 and together they never looked back. As a professional engineer David's career spanned over 50 years with managing positions at Blaw Knox, Eimco, Canadian Car, and Massey Fergusson. Always preferring to control his own destiny, David built a successful consulting engineering practice. He was an inventor and entrepreneur with a boundless imagination and unprecedented work ethic amassing 13 patents in his name. He was in his element working on projects whether at the cottage, in his workshop, or surrounded by his family. One of his last projects was the 'CANABODE' a Canadian made pre-fabricated collapsible dwelling to aid victims of natural disasters. His unique sense of humour, inventiveness, and positive attitude will be greatly missed by Friends and family alike.
Thanks to the staff at Scarborough Grace Hospital (Intensive Care Unit and Palliative Care) for their kindness and compassion.

BLACKMORE, Mark Andrew
In loving memory of our dear brother Mark Andrew who entered into eternal rest June 22, 1976.
If remembering brings you close
Then you never went away
For thoughts of you are with us
Each and every day
There will always be a heartache
And many a silent tear
But precious are the memories
Of the days when you were here.
Missing you "Mark" always.
- Brothers Tony and John, Sisters Karen and Adele and their families.

BLACKMORE, Mark Andrew
In loving memory of our dear son Mark Andrew, who entered into eternal rest 31 years ago on June 22, 1976.
We'll not say goodbye
We struggle with the question "why"
Yet answers never come&hellip
We search for how it came about,
The death of one so young
And even in our pain and grief
We try to comprehend&hellip
How life can turn us inside out
As petals in the wind.
But God has promised to be there
when blue skies turn to grey
Never leaving us alone
When sorrow comes our way
And though we do not understand
The soul has wings to fly&hellip
Our loved one is not far away
So we'll not say goodbye
We'll see you soon in heaven
where each heart is free to roam&hellip
Safe in flight, God Bless, Goodnight
We trust that you are 'Home".
- Loved with a love beyond all telling, Mom and Dad
