LANCASHIRE o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-09-15 published
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.

LANCASTER o@ca.on.middlesex_county.london.london_free_press 2007-05-27 published
Family first for Royal Canadian Air Force coach
By Amanda ROBINSON, Sun Media, Sun., May 27, 2007
Harold Leslie LANCASTER returned home in 1945 from Britain to Canada disappointed.
As a Royal Canadian Air Force instructor, he trained hundreds of men who went off to fight in the Second World War but never used his own flying skills in battle.
His loving young wife saw to that by making his family top priority.
For 2½ years at the war's onset, LANCASTER trained young flyers at the air base in Goderich, where he flew everything from the small, pesky Spitfire to the mammoth bomber with which he shared a name -- the Lancaster.
Then it was on to Britain in August 1944, where he trained more Commonwealth pilots, all the time hoping he'd see action in the war in the Pacific.
But that campaign of the war would end, too, before LANCASTER, who died April 1 at age 85, could fulfil his adventurous spirit.
Disappointed as LANCASTER was at again missing out on battle firsthand, it suited his young wife, the former Evelyn TUNKS, just fine.
The two had been married on September 13, 1941, about six years after meeting at age 14.
She had more than a little influence on LANCASTER never fighting overseas -- she wanted her husband to be around for her and their children.
"Thank God he didn't have to go," she said. "When he came home he had a chance to go on but I said, 'No, I want a father for my children.' "
And that was that -- LANCASTER would devote the rest of his life to family and nature.
When he died last month, he left behind his wife of 65 years and two daughters, Sharon STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, 64, and Janis LANCASTER, 57.
He also is survived by two grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
"He was such a nice, kind man and he was a lot of fun," STEWARD/STEWART/STUART said of her dad. "He just loved young fellas or gals who loved nature."
LANCASTER grew up on a farm in Elgin County with six brothers. There, he developed a love and appreciation for nature, specifically birds. He was fascinated by them and became an avid bird watcher, documenting and writing about many species.
LANCASTER also became active with many environmental groups, among them the Federation of Ontario Naturalists, the West Elgin Nature Club and the eco-Elgin Environmental Society.
STEWARD/STEWART/STUART credits her father for her appreciation of nature. She admits she's never had the passion for birds her father had but she does enjoy the peace and quiet of natural settings.
"I love to sit and listen to the birds and I love to have my place natural-looking," she said.
"I also got from my father just (a) love of life and (the belief) that I can do anything that I want."

LANDRIAULT o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-09-06 published
Father, sons die in two separate crashes
By Geoff NIXON, Page A10
Members of an Ottawa Valley family are reeling from the loss of two adult brothers and their father in a pair of tragic automobile crashes late in the Labour Day weekend.
Ricky LANDRIAULT, 36, of the Township of Greater Madawaska, was found in his sport utility vehicle on Tuesday morning near Calabogie, Ontario
Police believe he was speeding at the time of his crash and that the wheels of his vehicle slipped off the pavement. When he tried to correct his path, he veered across the road and struck a large tree.
He died alone at the scene.
Renfrew Ontario Provincial Police Constable Janice SAWBRIDGE said yesterday Mr. LANDRIAULT had last been seen at the Lannin Funeral Home in nearby Smiths Falls.
He had been planning the funerals for his brother and father, who were killed in a crash in Montague Township earlier in the weekend.
Louis LANDRIAULT Jr., 40, and his father, Louis LANDRIAULT Sr., 68, died when the car they were travelling in - a Dodge Neon driven by Louis Sr. - crashed into a hydro pole late Sunday afternoon.
Police said they, too, were speeding and lost control of their vehicle.
Constable SAWBRIDGE said the LANDRIAULT family deaths were the latest in a string of preventable collisions that have plagued Ontario roadways this summer.
"It's been horrible," she said. "We've said it all summer: 'Buckle up, slow down, stop the aggressive driving.' "
Neither Ricky nor Louis Jr. were wearing seatbelts at the time of their deaths.
"Look at what this poor family now has to go through," Constable SAWBRIDGE said.
Perry SSAINTBIN, a family friend who had known the brothers and their father for five years, said yesterday he mourns most for those left behind - the 15-year-old and three-year-old sons of Louis Jr., who are going to grow up without their dad, their uncle and their grandfather.
"Both the kids are just hurting inside so bad, Mr. SSAINTBIN said yesterday, fighting back tears.
Constable Paige WHITING of Lanark County Ontario Provincial Police said yesterday that Louis Jr. and his father were trying to catch up to another vehicle. The other vehicle - driven by Sharon DONNELLY, 37, common-law wife of Louis Jr. - was so far ahead they could not even see it at the time of their crash.
The couple had just had a fight, Ms. DONNELLY said, adding she had wanted to have a temporary separation and Louis Jr. was upset. She then took a drive from the house they shared in Smiths Falls to let things cool off, and he and his father had followed.
Now she will never get to see him again.
"I didn't want to leave him," Ms. Donnelly said yesterday. "This was the man I was going to stand beside the day he died - when he was 80."
Although the two had only met last December, they had planned to get married in three years time.
"He was the love of my life, he was very generous," Ms. DONNELLY said of Louis Jr. "I waited 37 years to meet a man just like that. He was perfect in every way."
The two brothers and their father will have a joint memorial service at the same funeral home where Ricky helped to plan services for Louis Jr., and Louis Sr., only hours before his death.

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.

BUTTEDAHL, Doctor Paz
Dr. Paz BUTTEDAHL, 65, passed away peacefully on October 8, 2007. She is predeceased by her loving husband of 25 years, Doctor Knute BUTTEDAHL. She is survived by her husband, John K. PARK, daughter Maria Beck BUTTEDAHL (Bob BECK), son John BUTTEDAHL (Lisa FERRARI), brother Valerio GOYCOOLEA (Rebecca PALMA,) and sisters Sofia GOYCOOLEA (Richard E. LANE) and Loreto GOYCOOLEA. Paz was a proud aunt of Claudia GOYCOOLEA (Mauricio MEYER,) Alexandre COULON (Maureen COULON- MENASHE,) Oliver GOYCOOLEA and great-aunt to Nicholas MEYER. She was a loving step-mother to Kim and Gary BUTTEDAHL and proud grandmother to Caleb and Alisha GRUNERT. Her family wishes to join in expressing all their love and appreciation for the extraordinary person Paz was, and for the outstanding contributions she made to the world. Paz was born in Santiago, Chile, and created a vast network of Friends, colleagues and students throughout the world, garnered through a long and distinguished career. The breadth of her experience spanned work with universities, international development organizations and agencies, and the Canadian military. Whatever the setting, common threads ran through all of her work: a passion for fostering international and intercultural understanding; a focus on sustainable development; and a belief in the possibility of creating an equitable and socially just world. The academic portion of Paz's career involved teaching at several universities in Canada, the United States, and Latin America, including a faculty position at the University of British Columbia and most recently, at Royal Roads University. Her work at the universities was always characterized by a passionate commitment to her students, the injection of an international perspective and comparative education approach to her courses, and a desire to create international partnerships linking students and educators from the developing world with those in Canada. Paz was sought after as a researcher and educator specializing in international development issues, and was a consultant with many international agencies and organizations. These included the Canadian International Development Agency, The United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization, the U.S. Agency for International Development, and the Organization of American States. Paz also worked for almost a decade with the International Development Research Centre in Ottawa. As Deputy Director of the Fellowships and Awards Division, her focus was on the development of human resources and the strengthening of institutions in the developing world through the education and training of their researchers and project staff. Paz strongly believed in learning as a crucial component in the achievement of sustainable development. In the early 1990s, as international development issues became more and more intertwined with issues of security, Paz was invited to attend the National Defense College in Kingston, Ontario, where she also contributed as the academic advisor to the Commandant. A subsequent posting to the Centre for National Security Studies provided a base for her research linking issues of sustainable development to those of human security. Paz's vast storehouse of knowledge and experience found a home and became invested in the creation of the Master of Arts in Human Security and Peacebuilding program at Royal Roads University in Victoria, British Columbia. As founder and program head, Paz worked tirelessly to build the program and to ensure its sustainability and its relevance to the international development and security issues of today's world. The Master of Arts in Human Security and Peacebuilding program was to be Paz's final contribution in a lifetime of notable achievements. In spite of failing health during the past months, she found strength in providing ongoing leadership to the program and in planning for its future. Paz, with her indomitable spirit and her vision of a world that might be, has enriched and influenced the lives of hundreds of Friends and colleagues around the world. Her loss will be deeply mourned. A celebration of her life will be held on at 1 p.m. on October 21 at Royal Roads University, 2nd Floor Grant Building, 2005 Sooke Rd. Victoria, British Columbia.

LANG, Reginald Stephen
Born December 17, 1936 in Assiniboia, Saskatchewan. Died peacefully, September 20, 2007 at Princess Margaret Hospital.
B.E. (Civil Engineering, M.Sc. (Community Planning), Ed.D., F.C.I.P., R.P.P. (Retired), Professor Emeritus, Faculty of Environmental Studies, York University.

Reg was a passionate, life-long learner, whose career included community planning, environment impact assessment, the study of strategic development and the management of organizational change, but this was only part of his intellectual pursuits. He had a natural ability to pursue many interests at the same time and he loved to talk about ideas. These conversations would often take place at the dinner table, where Reg greatly enjoyed many years of delicious meals and excellent wine (and good television afterwards). He loved hiking, both in Canada and Britain, but it was the daily walk in his yard to check the garden and watch the birds visiting the feeder that was his most constant communion with the natural world.
Friends may call at the Thompson Funeral Home, 530 Industrial Parkway South (northeast corner of Yonge and Industrial Parkway, 905-727-5421), Aurora from 10 a.m. Tuesday until the time of the Memorial Service in our Chapel at 11 a.m. Inurnment Aurora Cemetery.
In memory of Reg, the family would appreciate donations to the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation. The family would like to express their deepest appreciation for the care that Reg received here, and their heartfelt thanks to Doctor Mark MINDEN, Doctor Andrzej LUTYNSKI, the staff of the Transfusion Unit, Unit 15a where Reg received his initial treatment and Unit 15b where he passed away.

LANG, Reginald Stephen
Husband, father, lifelong learner. Born December 17, 1936, in Assiniboia, Saskatchewan. Died September 20 in Toronto of cancer, aged 70.
By Michelle LANG, Page L8
Reg was born on a dusty farm in Saskatchewan in the middle of the Depression, the eldest of four children. His sister Marlene still remembers how eager he was, as the firstborn, to teach her and their younger brother, Dennis, the games and lessons he had already learned.
After Reg finished high school at 16, my grandparents found the money to send him to the University of Saskatchewan for an engineering degree. Afterward he finished a master's degree in community planning and moved his young family to Halifax, where he worked for the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp., then the provincial government. He was proud of his role in helping several Nova Scotia towns preserve and restore their communities.
In the late sixties, Reg secured a Nuffield Fellowship and we went to live in London, England, for a few months. Soon after returning to Halifax, Reg was offered a job at the new environmental studies department of York University in Toronto.
For the next 30 years he worked there, teaching and advising graduate students. Each course was subject to constant revision and improvement, for Reg was as critical of himself as he was of his students.
Although he sometimes complained about the "curse" of having too many interests, Reg took great pleasure in being a lifelong learner. After retiring, he was most enthusiastic about his burgeoning work as a life coach and his book on personality types and strategic planning, which he worked on until his death.
Reg was passionate about the environment and the quality of urban life. He loved his house in Aurora, Ontario, and his garden. When Reg visited his daughter Mary-Ellen in Scotland he enjoyed hiking in the Highlands. They always ended up in a pub for what he described as a "swift half" - a few pints and a nip of whisky, followed by a large meal.
Reg's personal life also had many stages: from his initial marriage to my mother Joan, which ended in divorce, to his second marriage decades later.
Reg and Donna had only six years together, but this was the happiest time of his life, as he had finally found his match - emotionally, intellectually and gastronomically. He enjoyed describing the details of her latest feast and how many pounds he had gained.
Their last year together was bittersweet, as it became evident there wasn't going to be a remission from the leukemia. Reg bore this news stoically, with flashes of dry wit and ironic commentary that were so much a part of who he was.
Michelle LANG is Reg's daughter.
