COOKE, George Blackstone
By Kaireen ADAMSON, Page L6
George Blackstone COOKE, known as Joe, was the youngest of five siblings. His father died when he was 10 years old, leaving Joe's mother to raise three teenage girls and two young boys through the Depression.
For pocket change, Joe and his brother caught dew worms on the golf course to sell to Lake Couchiching fishermen. Joe learned to swim and play lacrosse at Orillia's Young Men's Christian Association; he learned his love of Gilbert and Sullivan musicals at the local high school.
As a youth Joe sought adventure in Labrador, where he was employed building the Goose Bay aerodrome. He left for King's College in Nova Scotia, graduating as a sub-lieutenant. He joined the Royal Navy and served three years on the frigate H.M.S. Loch Fada, escorting convoys on the North Atlantic.
On VE Day, unable to get in the front door of London's celebrated Hammersmith Palais, Joe climbed to a second-storey balcony. He drew such a cheer that he threw down his hat, then his coat, and so on until, when apprehended by the shore patrol, he was down to his skivvies and the crowd was roaring its approval.
After the war, Joe enrolled at the University of Toronto, where he received an award for excellence in English literature. He continued his studies at Osgoode Hall Law School.
While a student Joe met and married Dorothy LINDSAY. In 1951, Joe and Dorothy moved to her hometown of Renfrew, Ontario, in the heart of the Ottawa Valley. Fifty-eight years of marriage produced a family of six children and, eventually, 10 grandchildren.
Winters found Joe and his family on ski hills, where his advice to the timid was: "Don't look, just ski." On early spring mornings, canoes were lashed on trucks and Joe, family and Friends would head out to run the swollen creeks and rivers. When he heard the roar of approaching rapids Joe's face would beam in anticipation. "Ladies and gentlemen - we have ourselves a river!"
Joe established a thriving law practice in Renfrew. He was a natural community leader, a spirited participant in fundraising song-and-dance reviews and a friend to the developmentally disabled. An annual " COOKE's Outing" named in honour of Joe and Dorothy continues to provide recreation for individuals in Community Living.
In his retirement years, Joe and his family played host to many Friends at their sugar bush. The first boil came off in 1979 and the last in 2006, with many a red ribbon for the Cooke and Co. syrup entry in the Renfrew Fair. Joe made the most of his 85 years.
Kaireen ADAMSON is Joe's daughter.

Hunting camp blaze leaves three dead
By Sun Media News Services, Mon., August 13, 2007
Haliburton -- Three Minden men are dead following a fire that destroyed a remote hunting camp.
Ontario Provincial Police and more than 20 volunteer firefighters rode all-terrain vehicles through a rough and rocky trail Saturday to reach the camp near Haliburton, about 200 kilometres northeast of Toronto.
"There was virtually (no fire) to knock down by the time we got there," said Capt. Dan STIVER of Algonquin Fire Services.
The fire was reported after three other people escaped.
The blaze broke out about 5 a.m. Saturday at the camp on Third Lake near Stanhope Township, about 200 kilometres northeast of Toronto.
The blaze is being investigated by the Ontario Fire Marshal's Office.
Minden's fire Chief Doug SCHELL said he knew the men pretty well and it has hit the "community pretty hard."
One of the victims, said SCHELL, was Jerry COOPER -- a barber who worked on the Main Street in Minden and had just recently retired -- while another worked for the township.
"We were called out and helped Algonquin Highland fire department and provided them with an all-terrain vehicle to get in to the camp," SCHELL said.
Shaun CHAMBERLIN, owner of the Grill on the Gull restaurant, said "it has been a terrible tragedy for the whole community up here."
"Most of us own hunt camps and it really hits home," CHAMBERLIN said.
Autopsies will be conducted today.

Unseen, unheard, but still always dear
Still loved, still missed, ever near

COOPER, The Reverend Frank Howard Score; A.R.C.T., B.A., B.Th.
Frank died peacefully on Tuesday, July 10th, 2007 at Stratford General Hospital. Deeply loved by Margaret and Ted; his sister Saramin; his dear friend Alan TOFF; his children Annie, Vicki, Alex and Danny; his sons-in-law Peter, Jay and Des; his grandchildren Charlie, Zak, Ruthie, Frankie, Noah and Gerry and many Friends, nieces, nephews and other family.
Ever a proud Bermudian and a British subject to the end, Frank nonetheless made his home and life in Toronto, Canada and in his last years, Stratford, embracing the possibilities of where he lived with interest, vision and a sense of community. Of the many places he visited, Ravello was the one to capture his heart.
Frank was a passionate man, whose discerning love for that which is artistic, beautiful and true be it a rhythm, a line, a turn of phrase, a metaphor, a gesture permeated his life in both his pleasure and his work, and inspired a corresponding love in the many he touched who opened to his influence. None of us can be sensitive to Toscanini, Garbo, T.S. Eliot, Bernini or the liturgy, without being aware of Frank's spirit.
A funeral service will be held at Saint Martin in-the-fields, 151 Glenlake Avenue, Toronto at 11 a.m. Monday, July 16th. The visitation will be held in the narthex for an hour before the service. After the service there will be a reception at the church. He will be buried in Mount Pleasant Cemetery following the reception. Donations to the Parkinson's Foundation are appreciated and may be made through the W.G. Young Funeral Home, 430 Huron Street, Stratford. (519) 271-7411

STEVENSON, Mary R. (née FLOYD)
Suddenly after a brief illness on Monday, September 17, 2007 at Saint Michael's Hospital in her 90th year, after a Muskoka summer surrounded by all her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren (and dogs). Mary, the beautiful and dearly loved wife of Harry (d. 1999) for 61 years, adored mother of Cynthia CARSLEY (Scott MARTIN), Alice COOPER (Douglas), Douglas STEVENSON (Sonia) and Leigh Anne STEVENSON. Grandmother of Louis CARSLEY (Susanne,) Andrew CARSLEY, Douglas CARSLEY (Penny), Steve WALKER (Tracy), Todd WALKER (Tatjana), Joshua WALKER (Devorah), George COOPER, Rob STEVENSON (Cynthia,) Monique STEVENSON, and John Stevenson TAMES. Great-grandmother of Timothy, Reed, Eden, Nicola, Oscar, Carson and Boaz. Beloved sister of Frank FLOYD and Ruth SMITH. Predeceased by her brother Richard FLOYD.
Mary will be long honoured, remembered and dearly missed by her family and Friends everywhere. Mary and Harry's life together, living in Toronto, Muskoka, Coral Gables, Naples, Barbados, New York, Athens, London and Ottawa gave them the opportunity to make extraordinary Friends -- whom they treasured.
Mary had deep commitments to Christ Church Deer Park, The Cradleship Creche, Belmont House, and the Church of the Kettles. She was the conservator and doyenne of the Stevenson family cottage. At her happiest, she was sitting on her deck (with Harry) in Muskoka, notebook in hand, surrounded by the activities and perambulations of countless boats, dogs, and her beloved family. Writing was always close to her heart, and in her last eight years she never passed a day without setting pen to paper. Her book "The Church of the Kettles, Muskoka" published in her 86th year was the highlight of her writing career. Still to be published is her book on the history of Belmont House.
On her last night with us she recited a poem she wrote:
Muskoka -- By the way:
If ever in the night you hear,
The dove-soft whistle
of a northbound train,
Remember all the summer years
We loved, we loved and laughed
and know that now
Though wrapped in shrouds
of dream filled sleep
we hear it still.
A service will be held at Christ Church Deer Park, 1570 Yonge St. (at Heath St.) on Friday, September 21 at 11 a.m. Remembrances can be sent on behalf of Mary to Belmont House and Christ Church Deer Park.

HALE, George Morris (1922-2007)
On November 17, 2007, George Morris HALE accepted the starter's call for his divine tee time at 10: 30 a.m. George spent his final days at Kingston General Hospital, within the confines of his beloved alma mater, Queen's University, singing with his loved ones. George's passion for his Welsh heritage was unrivalled even though he came to Canada four years after his birth in Cwmtillery on December 23, 1922. He held St. David's Day celebrations the world over, awarded the Welsh Cup in family competitions (the highest honour attainable) and had a zeal for music - so much so that George's religious affiliation was determined by the quality of the choir. Queen's University offered George more than a diploma (Science '45, Masters '47): he met his true love Mary Lillian CONNER (Arts '45 - one of the famed Goodwin House Girls), forged essential life-long Friendships and instilled in his children the value of a university experience. While 'The Graduate' may have suggested it, George lived the future - an official Canadian Plastics Pioneer. His career course began in Shawinigan Falls and continued to North York, Brampton, Pointe Claire and culminated with the prestigious position as President, China Gulf Plastics Corp. in Taipei, Taiwan. His success afforded George and Mary, often accompanied by good Friends, the opportunity to travel the globe and experience its pleasures. Retiring from the plastics industry in 1976, George resettled the family in St. Catharines where he opened the Marco Polo Shop - keeping Mary and him occupied between golf and bridge games. His final years were spent in Kingston, enjoying the love and companionship of Ruth CHISAMORE, together wreaking havoc at the Kingsdale bridge tables. Predeceased by his wife Mary, granddaughter Michelle, sister Lilian and brother Cyril. Survived by his sister Kitty (Kathleen) and recognized progeny Richard (Skip), Susan (Doug ROUTLEDGE,) Jeff (Ted COOPER,) David (France) and Alison (spinster librarian); grandchildren Michael (Julie), Taben, Devin, Sarah (Dave LANOVAZ), Julie (Nathan LAX), Jordan, John Lee COOPER, Mathieu BOURBONNAIS; great-grand_son Liam LANOVAZ and his dearest companion Ruth CHISAMORE. A celebration of George's life will be held at the Country Squire Inn in Gananoque on November 24, at 7: 00 p.m. For accommodations in the Hale block, call 613-382-3511. Although we are requesting casual attire, George would have preferred 'clothing optional.' Please share your memories with us at www.jamesreidfuneralhome.com.

Peacefully, at Ian Anderson House on December 9, 2007 after a heroic battle with cancer. Born September 20, 1945, Al is predeceased by his father Stanley Allan COOPER, survived by his 97 year-old mother, Isabelle Newcham COOPER. Loving and devoted husband of 23 years to Karen, cherished father of Tom and Alicia. Fondly remembered by his in-laws Tom and Mona MORAN; brother-in-law to Damian, and Kevin and Tracie. 'Special' Uncle to Sarah and Hannah. A man of tremendous honesty and integrity, Al was uncompromising in his principles. Never too busy to stop and say hello to those he knew, and those he didn't necessarily know, Al always put others first. His family extended to hundreds as he genuinely appreciated and respected the efforts of all those who supported him, directly and indirectly, in his various positions throughout his career. Most recently as Chief Executive Officer of The Canadian Depository for Securities Limited, Al was highly respected in his field, both domestically and internationally. Having lost his arm to a very rare form of cancer, Al was truly overwhelmed by the volume of messages of support and encouragement received from around the world. An avid skier and accomplished golfer, Al was particularly attached to the Collingwood area where, over the last 35 years, he enjoyed the tranquillity of his 'oasis' and looked forward to spending quality time with family and Friends. Always remembered for that eternal smile and twinkle in his eye right to the end, Al had a presence that will be sadly missed by his family, Friends and business colleagues. Sincere thanks to this team of dedicated and compassionate specialists: Doctor Howard Seiden, Doctor Brian O'Sullivan, Doctor Peter Ferguson, Doctor David Hogg, Dr. Robert Sauls and Doctor John Radwan and their respective nursing support personnel. Warm thanks also to the staff and volunteers of Ian Anderson House where Al spent his last couple of days.

Mother of John, Donald and Robert, Grandmother of Richard, James, Catherine, Peter and Amie, Evelyn was predeceased by her husband, Jack COOPER, C.M., C.D., in 1995.

When the boys finished school, Evelyn often accompanied Jack on his extensive business travels, as Cooper Canada expanded its markets to 27 countries.

At Evelyn's request, there will be no funeral service.
