CAMPBELL, Joan
In loving memory of a dear daughter and sister, who passed away December 6, 2006.
We though of you with love today
But that is nothing new
We thought about you yesterday
And days before that too.
We think of you in silence
We often speak your name
All we have now are memories
And your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake
With which we will never part
God has you in his keeping,
We have you in our hearts.
- Sadly missed by Dorothy, Leona, Kathy, Bob, Lorraine, and Mandy.

CAMPBELL- SMITH, Jon Erik (1939-2007)
With sincere regret Donna, Jon and Jason announce the early passing of Erik at his home at Maple Bay on Vancouver Island, British Columbia after a battle with cancer which he fought with courage and dignity. Erik was a dear, loyal husband, a superb father, a delighted grand-father and a charmed father-in-law.
Erik's life long entrepreneurial spirit was tested daily with his ever changing collection of cars, boats. skis and at times the odd airplane, both full size and scale. Whether boating on his beloved Muskoka Lakes in his Chris-Craft, sailing in his Blue Nose, paddling his Chestnut canoe, or carving those elegant turns down his favourite runs at Osler Bluff Ski Club in Collingwood, Ontario where he was a well qualified ski instructor with the Canadian Ski Instructor Alliance Erik enjoyed his time to the fullest.
Putting together the next business deal whether big or small was a personal joy and challenge to him - he loved to make something happen!
Erik's intense love and loyalty to all his family and Friends were always apparent - he was always the first to say hello and offer a handshake.
His love of History, Economics, Politics, his concern for the Environment - particularly the management of our fresh water resources made him a wonderful participant in thoughtful discussions.
Erik's involvement with the Toronto Home Builders Association in the 1960's led to his creating his own building and land development companies in 1972 - CampbellSmith Homes and Camsmit Inc. These paved the way for Aurora Cars in Richmond Hill, Ontario and finally to the Muskoka Canoe and Rowing Shop in Port Sandfield, Muskoka, Ontario where his restoration work on small boats and canoes was well respected.
A man of vision and the utmost integrity he made our world a happier place just by being who he was, day to day. He was a mentor to many.
Erik will rest in Oslo, Norway within reach of the hills and mountains of his youth. If anyone wishes, a donation, to the Canadian Cancer Society or a personal charity would he appreciated by his family.
Donna will remain at her home in Maple Bay where family and Friends will always be welcome. Jon and Anna will return to Canmore, Alberta. Jason, Caroline and Mattie will continue to live in Braunschweig, Germany.
Thanks to you all for caring.

October 18, 2000
In loving memory of a dear husband and father.
We are apart for now,
But you are never for a moment forgotten.
You are always in our hearts, and always on our minds,
Every minute of every day.
The sound of your voice, your smile, your laughter,
And loving caring ways, will forever be a part of us.
And for now, this will have to be enough to fill our void.
We take comfort in knowing that you,
And all we loved and miss about you,
Will be waiting for us at Heavens gates,
When God calls us home, as God called you home.
Love Carol, Scott and Chad

CAMPBELL, William Wilfred, 1918 -- Died This Day
Rector, civil servant, novelist and poet born on June 1, 1858 in either Berlin (Kitchener) or Newmarket.
Educated at the University of Toronto, he was ordained an episcopal priest in 1886 but suffered a crisis of faith and quit the church about three years later. He joined the civil service and was later transferred to the Dominion Archives. A friend of the poets William Henry Drummond and Archibald Lampman, he was a lively contributor to the Toronto Globe column "At the Mermaid Inn" and wrote two prose romances, several closet dramas and political poetry. Regarded as a lesser-known but deserving Confederation poet, he was influenced by Robert Burns, the English Romantics and Tennyson. He also wrote a prose piece that set forth a personal concept of what he called a "vaster Britain."

The extended Crockett family in the U.S. also mourns his loss. Dick's Friends and colleagues and anyone who had the chance to get to know him are saddened by his passing. Dick's lifelong love of travel began early, at six months old, when he travelled by ocean liner to Toronto from Portsmouth, England where he was born. Dick distinguished himself early on by winning Cutest Baby Award at the Broadview Boys' Institute Fair. Dick got a kick out of being one of St. Clement's School's oldest male 'sandbox' alumni. Other fond childhood memories relate to his years spent at Ridley College and at Onondaga Camp. He went on to get his B.A. in 1946 from Trinity College, University of Toronto where he joined the Kappa Alpha Society. He then received his LL.B. from Osgoode Hall Law School in 1950 and his LL.M. from Harvard Law School in 1951.

Dick's passions were numerous and included golf, tennis, skiing, fishing, walking (Himalayas, Thailand, Alps), singing, dancing, games of every description, and travel with family and Friends. He valued the time he spent at the following clubs: York, National, Toronto, Toronto Golf, Granite, and B&R. Dick's eyes twinkled with his love of life, his wonderful sense of humour and his delightful sense of playfulness. He treated everyone with respect and kindness and always tried to see the positive side of life. We are so happy he was in our lives. He was a true gentleman and a class act.

At home on Thursday, August 23, 2007 William John (Jack) McKEAG died surrounded by his family. Beloved husband of Dawn CAMPBELL for 56 years. Loving father of Janis (Clifton RICHARDSON,) Darcy (Tom CRAWFORD), Kelly and Douglas (Onalea GILBERTSON), and grandfather of Scott and Colin REES and Stephanie (Alan SAMUELS,) Shannon and Matthew CRAWFORD. Survived by niece Ellen (Kowalski) sisters-in-law Sharon (Vic NAIMISH), Sonya (Scott WRIGHT), Dilly (Bill BURNS) and Pat (Drewett) and one brother-in-law Keith CAMPBELL. Jack was born on March 17, 1928 to Thomas and Isabelle McKEAG in Beresford, Manitoba. He was 18 months old when a car/train collision at Chater, Manitoba killed his mother and older sister. Jack was thrown clear, unharmed, and with the consent of his father, was adopted by George H. McKEAG (cousin of Thomas) and his wife Elizabeth BIGGAR. Jack grew up in Winnipeg, attending Queenston, Robert H. Smith and Kelvin Schools. He graduated from the University of Manitoba in 1949 with a Bachelor of Commerce. He then joined the family business Security Storage Ltd. (sold to British Traction in 1956) remaining there until 1960, serving as President 1952-60. He helped found McKeag-Harris Realty, latter known as McKeag Realty, and maintained an active role until 2000. Jack was a 'generous and giving guy' who volunteered in his beloved Winnipeg in a great variety of causes. He was a life-long member of St. Andrew's River Heights United Church. He joined the Kiwanis Club in 1951 and thoroughly enjoyed his association, keeping up contact with Friends that he met and worked with in the organization. He served as the President of the Winnipeg Club and as District Governor of the 67 Clubs in Western Canada. The family excursions to Kiwanis conventions across Canada and the U.S.A. rank high in memorable family trips, full of happenings and mis-happenings. Jack loved politics and worked locally for the Liberal party through many elections. In 1977, Prime Minister Trudeau appointed Jack as Lieutenant-Governor of the province of Manitoba, a position he held for 6 years. He was deeply honoured to have served Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth. He enjoyed travelling the province, attending fairs, festivals and curling bonspiels. Over 36,000 people from all walks of life attended functions at Government House. Following his tenure as Lieutenant-Governor, Jack returned to the business sector. During this time he served on a number of Boards of Directors provincially, nationally and internationally. These Boards of Directors included: Canadian Motorways Ltd. (1963-80); M.E.P.C. Canadian Properties Ltd. (1974-77); The Investors Group (1975-98) Johnson and Higgins Willis Faber Ltd.

He became a member of Ducks Unlimited (Canada) in 1976, serving as President 1984-85 and as Chairman 1986-88. He was a big booster of the Winnipeg Jets too, serving as President 1976-77) In 1973, Jack was appointed Honorary Colonel of the Fort Garry Horse, enthusiastically supporting the regiment until retirement in 1998. Jack was the recipient of many honours during his lifetime, including: The Knight of Grace in the Canadian Priory of the Most Venerable Order of the Hospital of Saint_John of Jerusalem (1971), Knight of Justice (1982); Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee Medal (1978); Canadian Decoration (1986), Commemorative Medal for the 125th Anniversary of Canadian Confederation (1993) Queen Elizabeth II Golden Jubilee Medal. Jack and Dawn were keen travellers and covered a great part of the world. Always, however Winnipeg was home. The favourite place for the family to gather each summer was at Granite Lake, Ontario. In spite of all Jack's honours and activities, he always had time for his family activities - be it school, hockey, soccer, baseball, swim meets or the horse barn. He was always ready with a little 'walking around money' for 'his Buds'. For the first time since 1980, Jack could not spend part of the winter in Sarasota, Florida. He was too ill to travel. During his illness, Jack was looked after by a legion of caring people at the Grace Hospital and by the Home Care and their Palliative Care Unit. Angels All! It allowed him to die at home in the midst of his family. A special thanks to Doctor T. Morgan and Colonel Max Ryan. The service for William John (Jack) McKEAG will take place on Wednesday, August 29, 2007 at 1: 00 p.m. at St. Andrew's River Heights United Church, Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Ambassador to North Atlantic Treaty Organization later ran Atomic Energy of Canada Limited and 'took no prisoners'
An outspoken envoy to five countries, he was an articulate Cold War advocate of the alliance who also came to champion Canada's nuclear power-plant ambitions
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S12
Ross CAMPBELL was a blunt-spoken diplomat who believed in the Cold War nuclear realities of North Atlantic Treaty Organization and then later switched to running Atomic Energy of Canada Limited, the powerful Ottawa-backed entity that makes and exports Candu reactors.
Appointed ambassador to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization in 1967, the posting came after a career spent in overseas jobs all over the world from Oslo to Ankara to Tokyo - not to mention a place at the top of the External Affairs hierarchy in Ottawa.
By all accounts a ferocious champion of his responsibilities, wherever they occurred, Mr. CAMPBELL was once described by The Globe and Mail as an "outspoken and irreverent fellow."
It was a view supported by many of his colleagues, who said it was one of his strengths to speak his mind. "He took no prisoners in an argument," said Alan Gotlieb, former Canadian ambassador to the United States. "He was the ablest person ever to serve in External Affairs… Without question."
Mr. CAMPBELL came from a Toronto family of achievers. One of his brothers became a senior executive at Canadian Pacific, and Mr. CAMPBELL himself had a law degree by the time he was 21. However, by that time the Second World War had intervened and rather than opening a law practice he volunteered for the Royal Canadian Navy. It was August, 1940, and a time when the Royal Canadian Navy was still so small it could not easily absorb recruits. Instead, he was lent to the Royal Navy for most of the war.
They trained at HMS Raleigh in Cornwall where they became known as the Raleighites. Included in their number was some of the most decorated Canadians in naval service, including Hampton GRAY/GREY, the only Canadian sailor awarded the Victoria Cross in the Second World War.
"Ross CAMPBELL was one of 150 young men who joined the navy under a scheme that allowed them to train with the Royal Navy when Canada did not have the facilities for training so many volunteers," said Alec Douglas, former official historian for the Canadian Forces and author of the official history of the Royal Canadian Navy in the Second World War.
In their naiveté, the Raleighites expected to be commissioned officers as soon as they landed in England. Instead, they were given a taste of seafaring life as ordinary seamen on Royal Navy ships. One of the ships Mr. CAMPBELL served on was the HMS Churchill, a 1,325-tonne, flush-deck destroyer the Americans had provided to the British under the Destroyers for Bases Agreement reached at Halifax in 1940. Built in 1919 and glaringly obsolete, Mr. CAMPBELL thought the vessel unfit for duty in the stormy North Atlantic. "Would anyone believe a 62-degree roll registered on the bridge in a gale off the west coast of Scotland," he wrote. "Those boats were never meant for the North Atlantic, or any open sea."
To his relief, Mr. CAMPBELL was transferred to Motor Torpedo Boats, or MTBs, and eventually won a Distinguished Service Cross for gallantry. The fastest vessels in the Royal Navy, the 21-metre-long boats were powered by three 1,100 horsepower engines and could reach speeds of 48 knots. He served on four different Motor Torpedo Boats in the English Channel, and then in North Africa where they attacked German convoys crossing the Mediterranean to supply Erwin Rommel's Afrika Korps. After the German defeat at the Second Battle of El Alamein in late 1942, Mr. CAMPBELL and his unit were sent back to England in advance of D-Day in June, 1944.
"The flotilla was in action every night, engaging everything from one-manned torpedoes launched against the flanks of the invasion fleet to R-boats, a sort of outsized E-boat [the German equivalent of Motor Torpedo Boats] with superior armament," he wrote. "A successful engagement with R-boats, three of us against nine of them - we stopped four - won me my Distinguished Service Cross."
In an action off Le Havre in July of 1944, his boat was attacked and set on fire. The crew managed to save the boat but he and others were badly burned and seriously wounded. The boat was towed while under fire and then brought back to England.
"It was a severe trial for an addicted cigarette smoker," wrote Mr. CAMPBELL, who afterward spent a great deal of time in hospital in England.
He ended the war as a lieutenant commander and joined External Affairs in Ottawa, starting with postings to Norway, Denmark and Turkey. Along the way he was variously a special assistant in Ottawa, the head of the Middle East division there and assistant under-secretary of state for External Affairs. As an ambassador, he served in Yugoslavia, Algeria, North Atlantic Treaty Organization, Korea and Japan.
It was his job as ambassador to North Atlantic Treaty Organization that was probably his most important diplomatic post. As part of the job, he served as Canada's representative on the Nuclear Planning Group within the alliance and lectured on strategic studies at both the North Atlantic Treaty Organization Defence College in Rome and at the National Defence College in Kington, Ontario
The North Atlantic Treaty Organization posting came at a time when some members of the Liberal cabinet under prime minister Pierre Trudeau questioned the value of North Atlantic Treaty Organization and even mused about leaving the alliance.
That would be a mistake, countered Mr. CAMPBELL, who suspected some cabinet members shared the foreign-policy attitude that "a social worker is just as necessary to a healthy community as a policeman." It was a view that particularly infuriated him.
Without North Atlantic Treaty Organization, he argued, the Soviet Union would be able overwhelm the countries of Western Europe. "Canada's membership in North Atlantic Treaty Organization is our admission card to the negotiating tables of the Western Alliance," he wrote in an article in Maclean's magazine.
There were even reports, later denied, that Mr. CAMPBELL threatened to resign over the issue. A Globe and Mail editorial attributed the report to a misinterpretation of Mr. CAMPBELL's spirited defence in a principled fight with politicians.
Mr. Gotlieb, who served as ambassador to Washington from 1981 to 1989 but at that time was the undersecretary of state for External Affairs, said Mr. CAMPBELL brought all the weight of his arguments to bear. "He was trying to stiffen up the peaceniks in Ottawa. He was outspoken and took a hard line on how to deal with the Soviet Union."
Some of his greatest battles were with politicians and civil servants who underestimated the Soviet threat, Mr. Gotlieb said.
Interestingly, Mr. CAMPBELL was still at it more than 20 years later. In an op-ed piece in The Globe in May of 1992, he criticized Donald Macdonald, a defence minister in the Trudeau cabinet, for declaring North Atlantic Treaty Organization had outlived its usefulness. "Canada's decision to play a leading role in the creation of North Atlantic Treaty Organization in the 1940's owed as much to the experience of two world wars, when the lack of collective arrangements encouraged aggression, as it did to the then-emerging Soviet threat."
After his North Atlantic Treaty Organization assignment ended in 1972, Mr. CAMPBELL was appointed ambassador to Japan at the time when Tokyo had become one of Canada's most important diplomatic posts. Japan was nearing the height of its trade supremacy, and Ottawa was anxious to be part of the opening up of the entire region to development.
In 1975, he retired from the diplomatic corps and was appointed chairman of Atomic Energy of Canada Limited. Suddenly, his knowledge of all things nuclear and his skills as a diplomat all came together, and he and his wife were on the A-list of Ottawa diplomatic receptions and dinners.
For a while, he was also acting president of Atomic Energy of Canada Limited as well as its chairman. At times he needed some of his fighting skills as much as ever to defend the nuclear-power company from charges of corruption. The most glaring incident was a $20-million fee paid to an agent who sold reactors to South Korea. members of Parliament were outraged that some of the money had been paid into a Swiss bank account.
The arrangement had been made in 1972, three years before Mr. CAMPBELL arrived at Atomic Energy of Canada Limited. He told a parliamentary committee that he saved $1.6-million by renegotiating the agent's contract.
During his time at Atomic Energy of Canada Limited, he sold Candu reactors to countries such as Argentina and South Korea, both countries where he had been ambassador, plus another to Romania. He also tried hard to close a deal with Japan, but to no avail. The Japanese Atomic Energy Commission changed its mind, making the announcement while Mr. CAMPBELL was in Tokyo working on the deal. Mr. CAMPBELL said the federal government's waffling over nuclear safeguards had hurt Atomic Energy of Canada Limited sales. At one stage, in typical fashion, he said the Candu nuclear reactor was going the way of the Avro Arrow - thanks to politicians.
Mr. CAMPBELL was also said to be bitter about the cancellation of a separate contract with Argentina. In that case, he blamed a careless remark by External Affairs minister Flora Macdonald for prompting Argentina to cancel its Candu order and buy West German reactors instead.
After stepping down as chairman, Mr. CAMPBELL stayed on as director of Atomic Energy of Canada Limited and as president of Atomic Energy of Canada International, which also sold Candu reactors overseas.
After leaving Atomic Energy of Canada Limited, Mr. CAMPBELL ran his own consultancy business. Age slowed down his body, but not his mind.
"He went to work every day of his life," said Mr. Douglas, former official historian for the Canadian Forces. "He never failed to go into the office."
Fastidious about his appearance, Mr. CAMPBELL showed up daily at his Ottawa office dressed as though he was on duty at any one of the five embassies he had been ambassador.
Mr. CAMPBELL was an officer in the Order of Canada and a life member of the Rideau Club in Ottawa. He was in the first group of veterans named to the Veterans Hall of Fame.
Ross CAMPBELL was born in Toronto on November 4, 1918. He died of heart disease in Aylmer, Quebec, on August 15, 2007. He was 88. He is survived by his wife, Pippa, and by his sons Hugh and Timothy.

He was first North American reporter to go behind the Bamboo Curtain
Dispatched to China in the 1950s, he covered the Orient and the Middle East for two decades with Associated Press, writes Sandra MARTIN. He ended his career at The Globe and Mail
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S11
A triple hitter as a reporter, editor and photographer, David LANCASHIRE was the Zelig of foreign correspondents. Wherever trouble brewed, he was there reporting back by telephone, telegraph or whatever other communications tool he could commandeer, in prose that was succinct, accurate and sparkling with precise and evocative detail.
The first North American correspondent to report from mainland China in the 1950s, he covered the Orient and the Middle East for Associated Press for two decades.
"David had a certain almost insouciance, which gave his personality the racy, devil-may-care air of a young boulevardier. At its best, his writing could be spectacular with the ability to take the reader along with him on a specific assignment," said Clark DAVEY, a former managing editor of The Globe and Mail.
"One of his many endearing qualities was his modesty," said Marcus Eliason, an Associated Press assistant international editor, "so it took a long time to know that he had scored a huge coup by getting a visa to go into Red China in the 1950s and produced a series of stories that was the first look into this closed society."
The two men worked together in Israel in the small Associated Press bureau in Tel Aviv from 1972 to 1976. "What I saw in him was a wonderful reporter, a man of enormous curiosity, a guy who always found something good to say about whatever culture he was covering," Mr. Eliason said. "He would go to the most exotic, strange and even dangerous places, but he always came back with a little story that brought the people and their lives alive to you." Speaking of Mr. Lancaster as an editor, he said: "In his quiet and unimposing way, he made you feel how a story should work, how to get it right, how to be fair, all the things that we desperately need [to know.]"
David Miles LANCASHIRE was born the year after the Wall Street Crash of 1929, the middle of three sons of Robert Harold LANCASHIRE and his wife Victoria (CAMPBELL.) His father held an eclectic series of jobs from musician to house detective at the Royal York Hotel and his mother was the daughter of Colin CAMPBELL, the city editor of the Toronto Star. By his late teens, he was bored with school and in love with playing the trombone. There's a story he liked to tell about spending the afternoon at what was probably the Victory Burlesque on Spadina Avenue. At the show's end, the lights came on, Mr. LANCASHIRE got up from his seat to leave and spotted his father, also playing hooky, sitting in the seat behind him. Neither one of them ever told Mrs. LANCASHIRE about their clandestine encounter.
Jazz brought him together with artist and musician Michael SNOW on a snowy night in 1948, when Mr. Lancaster paid 75 cents to hear three bands, including Ken Dean's Hot Seven, play at Lansdowne Hall in Toronto's West End. The two men began playing together as part of a group - Mr. Snow on the piano and Mr. LANCASHIRE on the trombone - at venues such as Balmy Beach, fraternity houses and the Snow family living room. In 1953, they went separately to Europe, but kept meeting by chance at clubs in Italy, France and Belgium. Mr. SNOW dropped into a club called La Rose Noire in Brussels and there was Mr. LANCASHIRE, the only Canadian in a Belgian combo. Soon, Mr. SNOW was playing there too. One night, Quincy Jones, Clifford Brown and a few other players from the touring Lionel Hampton Orchestra wandered in and jammed with them. A few days later, in Paris, Mr. Jones wrote and recorded a song he called La Rose Noire. And so it went for a couple of carefree years. "There was something very special about him," Mr. Snow said. "He was one of my very best Friends."
Wandering around Europe convinced Mr. LANCASHIRE, a high-school drop out, that he wanted to become a foreign correspondent, although he lacked any training - including the ability to type. He came back to Canada and talked his way into a job on the Quebec Chronicle Telegraph in 1954. After four months, he transferred to The Montreal Herald, where he worked as a crime reporter for a year. In 1955, he returned to Toronto and landed a job as a general reporter at The Globe and Mail. The late Richard (Dic) DOYLE remembers him in his book Hurly Burly as "a quiet gangling fellow" who was "a jazz nut." He once came across a sale of military drums in a loft on Yonge Street, and persuaded several of his senior editors to fit themselves out with drum kits. Mr. Davey still uses the regimental bass drum he acquired as a coffee table.
Restless from chasing fires and covering press conferences, Mr. LANCASHIRE longed to go to China, which had been largely out of bounds to foreign journalists since the Communist Revolution of 1949 had brought Mao Zedong to power. In September, 1956, Mr. LANCASHIRE wrote a letter to Premier Zhou Enlai asking for a visa. Some time later, he cornered managing editor Tommy MUNNS and offered himself as The Globe's first China correspondent. Mr. MUNNS declined.
Coincidentally, China announced that it would make visas available to American correspondents, an overture that triggered an embargo from the U.S. State Department, denying U.S. citizens the right to apply for a visa. The next day, Mr. LANCASHIRE received a wire from Mr. Zhou saying his application had been accepted. He quit The Globe, shopped his services to news agencies and was quickly hired on a freelance contract by the Associated Press in New York. Mr. LANCASHIRE flew to Hong Kong and walked across the bridge into China, the first reporter for any U.S. news organization on the Chinese mainland since 1949.
Before his two-month visa expired, he travelled more than 8,000 kilometres and produced a lengthy series of stories on life behind what was called the Bamboo Curtain. "Red China today is an immense machine with 600 million moving parts, running at top speed," Mr. LANCASHIRE wrote in an eerily prescient Associated Press story from Hong Kong on December 15, 1956. "Its 600 million individuals are sacrificing individually at Communist behest in an all-consuming drive to change a backward, poverty ridden nation into a modern state.
"China has the largest labour force in the world. And with the straining sinews of the 600 millions, she is struggling to reach a fantastic goal - to leave the middle ages behind and equal the United States in industrial power by the year 2000."
Based on his reportage, he was hired as an Associated Press staff foreign correspondent, a job he kept for the next two decades, filing many wire-service stories that ended up in the columns of his old newspaper. He spent three years in East Asia, reporting from Japan, Jakarta, Singapore, Bangkok and Saigon and almost every other country in the region. In 1960, he moved to Beirut and a new assignment as a roving Middle East correspondent. It was in Beirut that he met Adrienne (Dédée) TELDERS, a young woman from The Hague, Netherlands, who was working as a secretary at the Dutch embassy. They married in July, 1961. Their son Michael was born in 1963, followed by Adriaan in 1964.
"Writing for Associated Press meant covering everything from economics in Tokyo to opium dens in Laos, rigged elections in Tehran and Investiture of Prince Charles in Wales," Mr. LANCASHIRE wrote later. He covered nine wars, including the 1958 civil strife in Indonesia, the Sino-Indian war of 1962, ongoing Mideast conflict, the Turkish assault on Cyprus in 1974 and the overthrow of the Imam of Yemen in 1962. He also reported on Pope Paul VI's visit to Jerusalem in 1964, and Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi in Iran.
In 1968, he transferred to London, but he and his wife missed the tumult of the of Middle East and he snapped up an opportunity to move to Israel as news editor for Associated Press in Tel Aviv in 1972, where he covered the 1973 Yom Kippur War and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Selling their London house before heading back to the Middle East was his only regret, he explained earlier this year in a conversation about escalating British house prices.
In the mid-1970s, the LANCASHIREs decided it was time to "Canadianize" their teenaged sons. At about the same time, Mrs. LANCASHIRE was diagnosed with the early stages of multiple sclerosis, a chronic, inflammatory disease of the central nervous system. He quit Associated Press in 1976 and returned to Canada and The Globe, where he worked as chief feature writer.
"I loved the man," Ed O'DACRE, the paper's former features editor, said yesterday. "He could do whatever you asked him to do. Clarity was his forte. His style was simple, perfect, clear English." His writing was not hit-of-the-week stuff that called attention to itself, said Mr. O'DACRE, but it lasted. "That was his virtuosity - you didn't notice his skill."
After suffering a heart attack in the newsroom in 1981, Mr. LANCASHIRE took time off to recuperate and returned to the newspaper as an editor. He was 63 when he retired in June, 1994, after The Globe announced an editorial buyout package. He devoted himself to caring for his wife and kept up a lively correspondence in The Globe's letters page, pointing out slips and inconsistencies in polite but pithy notes. He also reviewed jazz books and wrote travel articles that were rich in anecdotes and experience.
After the first Persian Gulf war, he wrote a piece about Jordan reopening its deserts to tourism with a reprise of the lead he had written 25 years earlier when the country, having lost most of its tourist attractions during the Six-Day War in 1967, launched a camel safari as a lure for foreign visitors.
"The tents are folded and the caravan winds into the desert. The sun pours down like molten brass on a line of lurching camels and hooded riders. Rifles glint from the saddles."
While much was the same, much had changed between his two trips. "On our final night in the desert, we had a fireside feast of mutton and rice eaten with bare hands. Sitting across from the fire, a gnarled old Bedouin suddenly interrupted the conversation. One of the Palestinian policemen translated: 'He says, praise God that tomorrow the rain will fall from the skies again.' "
A wise nomad in tune with the elements, Mr. LANCASHIRE thought to himself. Reverting to journalist mode, he asked the Bedouin how he knew rain was coming. The old man reached into his robe, pulled something out and silently handed it to Mr. LANCASHIRE. "It was a gorgeous little radio - olive-green colour, shaped like an avocado, and into its side was set a little silver plaque that read, Pierre Cardin, Paris."
This past summer, he began cleaning out his files and uncovered a pile of negatives covering his Middle East years. He had the best of them printed, framed them himself, and had a one man photography show in Kilgour's, a pub in Toronto's Annex neighbourhood. He also found the letter that jogged his memory about his 1962 trip to Yemen. It formed the basis for his final Globe article, about a time there when "there were no hotels, no tourists, not even a road to the capital, only a rocky track for trucks and camels."
At the time, Mr. LANCASHIRE was based in Aden, sharing a room in the Rock Hotel with the correspondent for The Observer, a man named Kim Philby - the very same Soviet spy who disappeared from the Mideast four months later and was uncovered as Britain's infamous "Third Manitoba" Ever the professional, Mr. LANCASHIRE captured the traitor's image on film.
David Miles LANCASHIRE was born in Toronto on December 30, 1930. He died of a heart attack at his home on September 10, 2007. He was 76. He is survived by his wife Dédée, his sons Michael and Adriaan, his daughter-in-law Mayte, two grandchildren and extended family.

CAMPBELL, Charles McKinnon Jr.
Born November 25, 1913, died peacefully with his wife and son at his bedside at Vancouver Island's Saanich Peninsula Hospital on Sun., September 2, 2007, at the venerable age of 93. He is survived by his wife Dorothy, brother Jim and his wife Lorraine, son Charles, step-daughters Jan and Joanna, granddaughter Calla, and many beloved in-laws, nieces, nephews, and cousins. He was predeceased by his first wife Audrey and his sister Mary (Mim). Charlie loved his country and came from a family where civic engagement was second-nature. His father, Charles McKinnon CAMPBELL Sr., was a mining engineer who worked for and eventually ran the mine at Phoenix. British Columbia, where Charlie and his siblings were born. His father was an early advocate for resource conservation; his mother Lucy was from Vancouver's pioneering and politically engaged McGeer family. Charlie circumnavigated the globe with his family before he was 16, living in Montreal, Cape Town and O'Okiep, South Africa, and visiting England, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Hawaii. He earned an engineering degree at University of British Columbia and followed his father into mining, working in mines at Britannia Beach, British Columbia, Siscoe, Quebec, and Tulsequah, British Columbia, among many others. From 1959 to 1964, he was mine manager in Bralorne, British Columbia, where his son Charles John was born. He then became manager for the construction and opening of Western Mines, on Buttle Lake east of Campbell River. He also consistently honoured his father's tradition of unstinting public advocacy -- both had opinion pieces published in the Vancouver Sun after they were 90. Charlie was an active Liberal. In the 1972 provincial election, he ran in Vancouver Burrard, he served as president of the provincial party, and sat on the University of British Columbia senate. In 1974, Charlie became a member of the Immigration Appeal Board, and his displeasure with immigration administration led to a quarter century of persistent advocacy for more consistent and rigorous immigration policy. Charlie lived in West Vancouver for four decades, but Saturna Island was the home he visited for more than 60 years. It represented the values of community and family that he cherished. He met his first wife at Saturna Beach, where Audrey, as a university friend of Lorraine CAMPBELL, came on vacation with her two young daughters. He spent long summers with his wife Dorothy at the cottage he built in 1991 on the Campbell farm atop glorious Brown Ridge. Finally, he moved to the island permanently, on the verge of his 90th birthday. There could be no better place for him to live out a rich life than on Saturna, and he was very grateful for the Friendship and care he enjoyed there.

Philanthropist Funded Breast Cancer Research
By Staff, Page S10
Toronto. -- Audrey CAMPBELL, sister of the late businessman Kenneth THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and the last surviving child of newspaper proprietor and media owner Roy THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, died in hospital yesterday after a brief illness.
In October of 2004, Ms. CAMPBELL and her three daughters made what The Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation in Toronto called a "transformational" gift of $25-million to breast cancer research. In recognition of the donation, the hospital renamed its facility the Campbell Family Institute for Breast Cancer Research at Princess Margaret Hospital.
The donation - Canada's largest private gift to the cause of breast cancer research - propelled the institute toward the forefront of such research worldwide and enabled it to dramatically increase the number of principal investigators to 12 from five, and boost research staff to 150.

Audrey CAMPBELL, 90 Philanthropist
Newspaper magnate's daughter left own legacy in health care, racing
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S8
A horse breeder, a philanthropist and a nurturer of family and Friends, Audrey CAMPBELL was the last surviving child of newspaper magnate Roy THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON. Together with her three daughters, she gave $25-million to establish the Campbell Family Institute for Breast Cancer Research at Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto. The gift "really was transformational because it was the largest private donation for breast cancer at that point and also because it helped to support the work of Doctor Tak MAK… and allowed him to grow his team and his research organization," said Paul ALOFS, president of the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation, referring to the renowned cancer researcher.
Mrs. CAMPBELL's younger brother, Ken THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, celebrated her generosity with a public tribute.
"From the time of my first memories, I have looked up to Audrey as my big sister, the person who, along with my parents, looked after me and always had my best interests at heart," he said. "She prefers a low profile and I'm sure all this recognition embarrasses her… [but] she has made me proud of her again."
Phyllis Audrey THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON was born in Toronto on July 6, 1917, the eldest child of Roy and Edna (IRVINE) THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON. Her sister Irma (later BRYDSON) was born in 1918 (died 1966,) and her brother Kenneth in 1923 (obituary June 13, 2006).
Audrey's early years were far from luxurious - her father, the son of a barber, struggled to make enough money for food and rent. The THOMSONs moved to Ottawa in 1925, when she was 8, and to North Bay three years later. Her father worked as a travelling salesman before he paid $1 for a broadcasting licence, bought a 50-watt transmitter on three months credit and started his first radio station, CFCH, in North Bay. Soon, he also bought radio station CKGB in Timmins and then moved into print by acquiring the Timmins Daily Press in 1934.
Three years later, the family moved back to Toronto. Audrey, now 20, attended the University of Toronto and earned a bachelor of arts degree. After the Second World War, she met Queen's University engineering graduate Elwood CAMPBELL, later a high-school math and physics teacher. They married in 1947 and bought a three-bedroom bungalow in Port Credit, where they raised their three daughters, Linda, Gaye and Susan.
Despite her father's immense wealth from his North American and European newspaper interests and his stake in North Sea oil and gas, Mrs. CAMPBELL lived a quiet suburban life, immersed in family and her daughters' activities. While she attended meetings of Woodbridge, the family holding company, she was not involved in the running of the Thomson corporate empire. "I may have inherited my father's title and had many benefits conferred upon me in the business and social world, but Audrey is mind, heart and head of the family," Ken THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said of his older sister in Mrs. CAMPBELL's two younger daughters were interested in riding ponies, which triggered her own interest in standardbred horses. She and her husband started small in the early 1970s, with a part ownership in a single animal. She found early success with horses Armbro Dallas and Arcane Hanover and eventually established the Lothlorien Equestrian Centre in Cheltenham, Ontario, an offshoot of her daughter Susan's own stable of hunters and jumpers called Lothlorien Farms. "Lothlorien" is the name of a forest in J.R.R. Tolkien's fictional Middle-earth.
Breeding and racing horses became an enduring passion for Mrs. CAMPBELL, who eventually had a stable of more than a dozen horses. In 2002, Red River Hanover, which she partly owned, won the $1.5-million prize for harness racing in Toronto. Three years later, Rocknroll Hanover won the Breeders Crown Race at New Jersey's Meadowlands Racetrack.
In 2004, Mrs. CAMPBELL and her daughters decided to invest in health care in a focused way, rather than just making a general donation to the system. They researched where their money might have the most impact and decided to support the work of Doctor MAK because they realized that his work on cancer cells would have far-reaching consequences in breast cancer, but other types of malignancies as well.
Phyllis Audrey CAMPBELL was born in Toronto on July 6, 1917. She died of metastasized melanoma in Toronto Western Hospital on September 23, 2007. She was 90. Predeceased by her husband, Elwood, she leaves her three daughters, 10 grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren and extended family.

Mother helpless as teen gunned down
By Martin MITTELSTAEDT, Page A1
Keyon CAMPBELL was at home early yesterday morning doing nothing more dangerous than playing video games with his Friends.
Because it was late, and a frigid night, his mother planned to drive one of the Friends home - so she sent her 16-year-old son outside to warm up her car.
But the seemingly innocent plan turned to tragedy when Mr. CAMPBELL was shot by an unknown assailant as he stepped out of his house. He stumbled back into the doorway, around 1: 40 a.m., dying in front of his distraught mother and aunt, who tried desperately to save his life using cardio-pulmonary resuscitation.
Police do not have a motive to explain why the teenager was shot to death and say he may have merely been in the wrong place at the wrong time.
"It's disgusting," Toronto homicide squad Detective Hank IDSINGA said of the killing. "It's a terrible thing to have happen and to be found by your mother immediately after it happened, it's absolutely devastating for her."
Police say there may have been three shots and do not know if the gunman had accomplices.
The death raises Toronto's homicide toll to 80, closer to the record reached in 1991, when there were 89 murders in the city.
Police suspect the shooter had been waiting just north of the boy's home, and initially fled on foot. It had just started to snow at that time, and police followed tracks looking for clues.
By police accounts, Mr. CAMPBELL was a typical teenager. He worked at a fast food restaurant, a job he took so he could buy a car.
He was taking Grade 11 and 12 courses at a high school that police declined to identify and lived with his mother.
Although Mr. CAMPBELL was known to police, he didn't have a criminal record, or anything that would suggest activities that would put him at a high risk of murder.
"Keyon CAMPBELL was a young, 16-year-old, bright student, employed, and was killed in the front door of his house," Det. IDSINGA told reporters yesterday at a news conference.
"It's too early to tell right now whether he was a target. It very well could be he was in the wrong place at the wrong time."
The shooting occurred at Empringham Drive, in a complex of neat townhouses where police say there had been another incident recently.
The area is located in the northeastern part of Scarborough, in residential subdivisions near the Toronto Zoo.
"There have been some shootings there in recent days and it looks like he might have gotten caught up in it," Det. IDSINGA said.
At the home yesterday afternoon, police and municipal workers stood in the rain behind yellow caution tape, trying to melt snow around the crime scene using a portable steamer, in their effort to find clues.
A passerby dropped a bouquet of white roses on the hood of a parked police cruiser.
The car that Mr. CAMPBELL was supposed to turn on was parked in the driveway, covered in a blanket of snow from the city's first major snowstorm of the season. A boy's blue bicycle was parked in the garage of the townhouse.
Police are asking anyone in the community with information on the shooting to phone the homicide department or Crimestoppers.
