CREERY, Leslie John
With sorrow, we announce the death of L. John CREERY, husband, father, grandfather, friend. Born in Vancouver on August 14, 1926 to Marion KER and Leslie CREERY, John died on December 3, 2007, in his 82nd year, after a long courageous war with cancer. John is survived by his wife of 30 years, Gretchen Keirstead CREERY, his four sons, John Michael (Anne RISTIC,) Jamie (Carole IMHOFF), Adam (Laurie) and Anthony (Laura AITKEN), his step-daughter, Melissa MOSELEY, his sister, Eleanor ROBINSON, his 10 grandchildren and many cousins, nieces and nephews, and was predeceased by his daughter, Sarah Ann, and his brother, Andrew. His Friends and clients are too numerous to imagine, much less tally. Horses, newspapers and theatre were among John's early interests but he turned to law as a young man, as it was a responsible thing to do. After graduating from the Faculty of Law at the University of British Columbia in 1951, John headed to the Department of Justice in Ottawa, for a brief stint as a legislative draftsman. Thereafter, John practiced law in Vancouver virtually to the end of his life. John was as interested in his clients themselves, and their businesses, as he was in their legal affairs and worked tirelessly on every idea, venture and project that came his way. For John, the journey was every bit as compelling as the destination. John practiced extensively in the entertainment, cruise and natural resources businesses as varied a legal practice as were his interests in life. John was enthralled by people, by car collecting, by gardening, and by trains big and small. John had, to the end, an active and inquiring mind and was fascinated by life, and by the physical and spiritual world in which he lived. John was old-fashioned in the most admirable sense of the phrase and embodied respect, civility and good manners; he loved his Friends. To the end, John was a very spiritual man. A memorial service marking John's life will be held at 12 o'clock p.m. on Saturday, December 8, 2007 at Saint Mary's Anglican Church in Kerrisdale. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the British Columbia Cancer Foundation or the Huntington Society of Canada, British Columbia Chapter, would be appreciated.

WAECHTER, Joseph
Joseph WAECHTER, of Hanover, passed away suddenly on Wednesday, November 21, 2007. He was 68.
Born in Brant Township, son of the late Andrew and Susan (nee HEHN) WAECHTER. Joseph was a member of the Old Timers Hockey League and a former member of the Bowling Mixed League. He was an avid Slow Pitch fan, both playing and watching.
Survived by his wife Karen (née KERR) WAECHTER, son Andrew (Carrie) WAECHTER of Saint Thomas, daughter Michelle (Gary) LANDSBOROUGH of Cambridge, grandchildren Dylan, Michael, Braedon and Zackery. Also survived by his brothers Lorne (Mary Lou) WAECHTER of Hanover, Ralph (Diane) WAECHTER of London, sisters Wilma REITZEL of Waterloo and Marjorie (Willard) LANG of Chepstow. He will be fondly remembered by several nieces and nephews. Predeceased by daughter-in-law Pauline WAECHTER, his brother Alfred WAECHTER and brother-in-law Ab REITZEL.
Visitation was held at Mighton Funeral Home, Hanover, on Friday from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. with Vigil Rites at 8: 30 p.m. A Funeral Mass was held on Saturday, November 24, 2007 at 10: 30 a.m. at Holy Family Church, Hanover. Father Mervin PERERA officiated. Interment in Holy Family Cemetery, Hanover.
Memorial donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or Canadian Diabetes Association were appreciated as expressions of sympathy.
Joe was a husband, a father, a grandfather, a brother and a true friend to so many.
All of Joe’s 68 years were spent working hard. By the age of eight, Joe was working, baling hay, delivering newspapers and working at the bowling alley, in order to help provide for his mother. This work ethic continued all of his life.
Joe married his teenage sweetheart, Karen, in 1964 and spent the next 43 years with his loving wife. During those years he raised a family, ran his own business, saw his children (Andy and Michelle) get married, and welcomed a grand_son (Dylan) into the family. Joe’s daughter-in-law Pauline passed away in 2001. Andy has since remarried and Joe welcomed three new grand_sons (Michael, Braedon and Zackery) and a daughter-in-law (Carrie) into the family. Joe welcomed a new son-in-law into the family in 2000 (Gary) and they became close Friends.
Whenever Joe was needed by his family, he was there. Fixing up houses for his kids, always there to lend a hand, no matter what. His pleasures in life were simple and he enjoyed working around the house. He had recently retired and was finishing his basement now that he had the time.
He thoroughly enjoyed visiting with Friends over coffee at Tim Hortons.
In his younger days, Joe was dedicated to playing baseball and hockey, as well as snowmobiling with his wife and children.
Joe was a fervent believer in God and his Catholic faith. He enjoyed attending church in Walkerton when his wife wasn’t working. Like Jesus, Joe was a carpenter by trade and we are sure that he is building a house in heaven and waiting to welcome the rest of his family home.
Special thanks to Mighton Funeral Home for their kind treatment of the WAECHTER family. Thank you to Constable BREEN for adding respect and dignity to the funeral procession.

Canada's first environment minister had orders to clean up Ontario
Appointed in 1969 by premier John Robarts, he was described by a Toronto Telegram reporter as being like 'a sheriff from out of the Old West.' He also twice served as solicitor-general, resigning each time after separate scandals, writes Sandra MARTIN. He survived handily
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S8
A natural politician who loved the meet-and-greet of politics, George KERR was a cabinet minister in the Ontario governments of John Robarts and William Davis. The first politician to hold the environment portfolio in any jurisdiction in Canada, he was as far-sighted in his struggles to combat pollution as he was controversial in his attempts to ban phosphates and reduce automobile emissions.
The only son and elder child of lumber trader George and Florence (HINTON) KERR, he was born in Montreal but grew up in Esquiminac on Quebec's Gaspé Peninsula. As a child, he and his younger sister Patricia (Patsy) went to the village school in a cart pulled by their pony Julie. He was apparently heartbroken when his parents decided to send him at the age of 9 to Rothesay Collegiate, a boarding school located near Saint John. The school yearbook, The Blue and White, calls him Buzz and says he came to the school as a "wee mite" who "from the hour of his arrival" was into everything "official and not quite so official." He was very athletic, playing on all of the school teams, winning a middleweight boxing championship and serving as captain of the football and hockey teams in his senior year.
He graduated in 1942 and entered the undergraduate program at the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton that fall. Barely a year later, he tried to enlist in the armed forces, but was diagnosed with tuberculosis when he underwent his mandatory medical. Instead of serving overseas, he was sent to a sanatorium where he was subjected to the clean-air cure that was standard treatment in those days. After recovering, he worked for some time in the lumber trade with his father before returning to university in 1949, managing to complete his degree in a year by attending summer school. During this second stretch at University of New Brunswick, he met a student from Spencer Island, Nova Scotia, named Joan Merrydith (Mim) SPICER. They both enrolled in the law school at Dalhousie University in Halifax in September, 1950. Afterward, he liked to claim that he got through because she tutored him. They were married September 1, 1951, and eventually had three children, Larry, Margot and James.
After earning their law degrees from Dalhousie in 1953, the KERRs moved to Ontario, settling in Burlington in 1954, where they both worked in the law firm Kerr and Hawken. As he had done at boarding school two decades earlier, Mr. KERR got into everything "official and not quite so official" from the hour of his arrival in Burlington, from the town council to the chamber of commerce to the Halton County Progressive Conservative Association. He was first elected to the Ontario Legislature in 1963 for Halton and held his seat (which was renamed Halton West and then Burlington South) for more than two decades, finally retiring before the 1985 election.
As a backbencher in premier John Robarts's government, he served on a number of standing committees, including municipal affairs and education, health and welfare, and won his riding in the 1967 provincial election with a plurality of nearly 6,000 votes. Two years later, in June of 1969, Mr. Robarts appointed him to cabinet in the new portfolio of energy and resources management, with the express mandate of cleaning up Ontario's soil, air and water. He was 45.
A reporter from the now defunct Toronto Telegram interviewed the newly minted minister in his Queen's Park office in January of 1970, describing him as tall, with a strong, firm jaw and looking variously like "a sheriff from out of the Old West" and "a trifle stiff and stern in the manner of a not-so-bad high-school principal." Sitting behind a huge desk and smoking his ever-present pipe, Mr. KERR said: "Pollution is the thing everybody seems to be concerned about right now. It's just amazing how the interest in it has boomed in the past 12 months."
He lived beside Hamilton Harbour, infamous for the belching smoke from the Stelco and Dofasco steel smelters on its shores, and admitted that it was "not the most beautiful body of water in the world." He made a promise to change all that, vowing that the bay would be clean enough to swim in within five years.
Five years later, he climbed into an old-fashioned horizontal-striped bathing suit adorned with shoulder straps and plunged into the water for a short but bracing swim, and emerged without any seeming ill effects.
When William Davis succeeded Mr. Robarts as leader of the party and as premier in 1971, he appointed Mr. KERR as environment minister. "He was a very able minister," Mr. Davis said yesterday, suggesting that heading up the first environment ministry in Canada was his major political legacy because "it was a major departure in terms of government responsibility and George did it and did it well." A year later, Mr. Davis shifted him to the ministry of colleges and universities, with postsecondary schools expanding rapidly as the baby boom shouldered its swaggering way into secondary education.
A strong supporter of his own community, Mr. KERR "strenuously and successfully" resisted the inclusion of Burlington in the formation of the Hamilton-Wentworth regional government in the early 1970s, according to Mr. Davis. "He was very persuasive in that regard," said Mr. Davis, who can still remember the arguments around the cabinet table before the legislation was passed in June of 1973. "Most people in Burlington would say that his success in keeping Burlington as a separate community was his main accomplishment."
Mr. KERR's political life was not without controversy. He was solicitor-general twice, resigning each time after a public clamour, although his exile to the wilderness of the back benches was short lived because he had never done anything illegal.
The first occasion, in July, 1975, involved the mention of his name in the trial of former Hamilton Harbour commissioner Kenneth ELLIOT/ELLIOTT in connection with dredging contracts. Mr. Davis reappointed Mr. KERR to cabinet three months later for his second stint as environment minister, where he remained until January, 1978, when the premier shifted him back again to solicitor-general.
The second stumble was more serious. On August 14, 1978, while Mr. KERR was solicitor-general and provincial secretary for justice, he made a telephone call to an assistant crown attorney on behalf of Francis HARRISON, a constituent who was facing trial for driving while his licence was suspended. According to Mr. KERR's explanation, he made the call not to attempt to influence the outcome of the pending trial but to learn whether Mr. HARRISON, a pipe fitter (who had telephoned the minister at home after looking up his number in the telephone book), would face a mandatory jail term if convicted. The intervention quickly became public and Mr. KERR resigned from cabinet on September 9, 1978, in an atmosphere that was already contaminated by John MUNRO, another Hamilton-area politician, who had been forced to step down the day before as the federal labour minister after calling a judge to offer a character reference for an accused constituent.
"I think it was something he felt personally he should do," Mr. Davis said. "George was one of those individuals who was very anxious to do what he felt was appropriate and that is why he resigned. He was not pushed."
Mr. HARRISON was acquitted at a trial that November. A subsequent report of a government inquiry into the matter questioned Mr. KERR's wisdom but stated that: "It does not seem that Mr. KERR's telephone call constituted an attempt to obstruct, pervert or defeat the course of justice within the meaning of Section 127 of the Criminal Code."
Although he never returned to the cabinet table, Mr. KERR served on a number of standing committees and was asked by Mr. Davis to become speaker of the house in 1981, an invitation he declined. "I think he was tired of refereeing," the former premier said.
Four years later, Mr. KERR resigned his seat and returned to practising law with his wife. "He was very dedicated to his family and of course he was supported by Mim," Mr. Davis said. "I would argue that she may have gotten more votes for him than he got for himself. They were a great pair."
About five years ago, Mr. KERR was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. Although frail, he enjoyed what his daughter Margot called "his last hurrah" in February when he made an appearance at a fundraiser for Joyce Savoline, the successful Progressive Conservative candidate in a provincial by-election in Burlington.
Although Mr. KERR wasn't on the list of speakers, he responded to the call when he was asked to say a few words, said party chief John Tory, who was there to "motivate the troops" for the upcoming vote.
"He was absolutely magnificent," Mr. Tory said of Mr. KERR's 10-minute speech on how much he enjoyed his early days in politics. "I think it was a very moving experience for most of the people there, probably two-thirds of whom were far too young to have known him as an active politician. He summoned up everything he had."
In the middle of April, Mr. KERR suffered a fall and had to go into hospital.
George Albert KERR was born in Montreal on January 27, 1924. He died of pneumonia in a Burlington hospital on May 21, 2007. He was 83. He is survived by his wife Mim, three children, four grandchildren, his younger sister Patricia Lawson and his extended family.

KERR, Merrydith (née SPICER)
After struggling with a bronchial infection and the recent loss of her beloved husband George, 'Mim' peacefully passed away early Thursday morning, June 7, 2007, at her home in Burlington. Beloved mother to Larry, Margot and James, mother-in-law to Ellen and Dana, and grandmother to Spencer, Callaghan, Martha and Maxwell, Merrydith was born on July 14 (Bastille Day), 1930 on the kitchen table of the family farm in Spencer's Island, Nova Scotia. Daughter to Peggy and Isaac SPICER, a Harvard educated lawyer and village patriarch, and brother to Peter and Max, all predeceased. Her strict upbringing at home and a single room schoolhouse all changed when she attended Edgehill School for Girls, the University of New Brunswick, and Dalhousie Law School where she was the only woman in her graduating class. Merrydith was known to tutor her classmates, and her husband credited her with his academic accomplishments. A natural student with a photographic memory, an innate artist and member of the varsity basketball teams, she ultimately settled in Burlington, Ontario where she raised her family, worked at the Kerr and Hawken Law firm, and donated her time to the Salvation Army, March of Dimes, Canadian Cancer Society, and The University Women's Club, all the while a supporting champion of her husband's political career. Until her recent health challenges, Merrydith was an avid reader, lover of language, the theatre, and the visual arts, history and politics. Those who knew Merrydith will miss her quick wit, outstanding seafood chowder, and passion for Friends and fun. Her door was always open. This summer, a memorial service will be held for Mim in Spencer's Island, her Nova Scotia home, where she bloomed like the lupins and the lilacs. Visitation at Smith's Funeral Home, 485 Brant Street (one block north of City Hall), Burlington, (905-632-3333), on Sunday, June 10, 2007 from 3-4 p.m., followed by a ceremony at 4: 30 p.m. If desired, in lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society would be sincerely appreciated. www.smithsfh.com
