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.

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.

Connie grew up during the war years in New Liskeard and was introduced to the love of nature and outdoor activities by her sportsman father, Sam EPLETT, owner of Epletts Ice Cream. She had her own horse at age 12 and became a skilled horsewoman. At war's end she met the love of her life, a war-time pilot, Bill INCH, and as soon as he finished law school he married Connie and commenced practicing law with Connie's uncle, George MILLER, with the Sudbury law firm Miller, Maki.
She was an avid curler and once represented the north in national curling championship. During the time she was raising their six children, she gave many hours to the Red Cross and other charities related to Children's Aid.

In later years she took on the management of the Towne House Hotel owned by her husband and business partners. To add a challenge, she bought a farm which later became an established equestrian facility in Chelmsford, Ontario, currently owned and operated by her daughter Cathy and her husband Rick.
Throughout her life she was a popular hostess who knew the words to all the songs of the day and could whip up a meal for a dozen people at a moment's notice.

MILLER, Harry Idris " Tony"
Actor, husband, father, grandfather, painter, Bay Street man. Born February 26, 1910, in Dolgellau, Wales. Died March 27 in Toronto of natural causes, aged 97.
By Carol A. MILLER, Page L6
Tony once told us he remembered the sound of bells ringing in his village announcing the end of the First World War. He was the son of hardworking English parents and had two sisters who by all accounts spoiled him.
Soon after he graduated from school in 1926, he was told to report to The Imperial Tobacco Company of Great Britain and Ireland Ltd. for his first job.
It lasted only months, since he caught the acting bug and went on to pursue his passion in theatres across England. It landed him on stage in London at the Old Vic Theatre with the likes of Peter Ustinov, Laurence Olivier and Alec Guinness. When he started onstage, he assumed the name Anthony HULME, which led to his being called Tony offstage.
During this time he met his first wife, Eve, also an actor. By the late 1930s he'd ventured into film. But then the war broke out, and Tony joined the Royal Air Force as a radio operator and communicator (he demobilized as a flight lieutenant).
Eventually, he was posted overseas to Naples, where he met a beautiful and lively young lady, Kay, who became his second wife. Returning to England after the war, they married and had two children, Christopher and Carol. Within a few years, Tony had returned to the theatre and to film; he played the character Paul Temple in several films (a sort of precursor to The Saint series).
In the mid-1950s, Tony and Kay decided to immigrate to Canada and a new life. He began working for a mining company on Bay Street in Toronto. As we grew up north of the city, we watched our father commute to work and back, eat supper, then be off to his first true love - the theatre. He was a founding member of Theatre Aurora and The Curtain Club theatre in Richmond Hill, Ontario Tony loved the countryside and the garden. He was happiest building things such as stage sets or extensions to our homes.
In the early 1970s, Tony and Kay parted company after 28 years. He moved to Toronto, where he continued to be active in theatre, television and radio while working on Bay Street.
Soon he met his third wife, Joanne, a vivacious and outgoing lady. They travelled, produced theatre, entertained and enjoyed life to its fullest. He renewed his love of painting, exhibiting in Toronto.
After more than 30 years, Joanne bid farewell to her soulmate this spring. The theatre has gone dark for this actor. He played many roles, all of them with enthusiasm led by a passion for knowledge. "Life well-spent is long."
Carol A. MILLER is Tony's daughter.

Devoted to her husband, she shared with him a love of nature translated into their life work: reforesting whole tracts of their land on the Oakridges Moraine. She stood ever firm on principle, and her judgement of merit was swift and, some would claim, infallible.
Interment at the Walker plot, Mt. Pleasant Cemetery on December 15th at twelve noon, followed by Anglican service at the Belmont House chapel and a lunch reception in the Solarium at 1 p.m.
Olwen supported Belmont House with her husband as a donor. She worked there as a volunteer, and since 1996 it has been her home. Our thanks to the staff, to Doctor BIRMINGHAM, and to dear Angela SMART, Olwen's private nurse-companion, true friend and carer in her final years.
To remember Olwen and Jim WALKER, please plant a tree in their name, or give to a charity of your choosing.

BOISSONNEAU, Alice Irene (EEDY)
In Guelph, Ontario, December 9, 2007. Novelist, poet, short-story writer, social worker by training. Born in Walkerton, Ontario, in 1918, raised in Saint Marys, Ontario, graduated in 1939 from Victoria College, University of Toronto. Loving wife of the late Arthur BOISSONNEAU. Predeceased by her sister, Elizabeth Eedy Brown FRYE (1997,) and her brother, John W. EEDY (1996.) Alice began her adult life as a hospital social worker in Toronto and Vancouver, and wrote short stories in her spare time. Her work appeared in the Canadian Forum, Alphabet magazine, Exile: A Literary Quarterly, and she wrote for the Anthology series on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio. During her life with Arthur, a specialist in forestry, Alice took to writing in an isolated trailer in the northern Ontario woods, in the "clement" months. Her publications included two novels, Eileen McCullough (1976), shortlisted in 1977 for the W.H. Smith/Books in Canada First Novel Award, and A Sudden Brightness (1994); and a short story, "The McCrimmons", in Stories from Ontario (Germaine Warkentin, ed., 1974). In 1992, she published There Will Be Gardens, a poignant memoir of life in Toronto. A Globe and Mail review at the time described this latter book as mining both the grace, and the "sour, sad stillness" of pre-"world-class" Toronto, in a "long, hypnotic chant…to great literary effect". Her family remembers her as a wonderful cook, who loved music, and encouraged Arthur's recorder group; in her young life, Alice sang folk songs and arias, seated at the piano with her mother. Alice leaves her sisters-in-law, Dorothy EEDY of Saint Marys and Marie MILLER of Woodbridge; her godson, Sy BENSON of Brantford, and her friend Kelli ARPPE of Guelph; and many nieces and nephews, and great nieces and nephews, in communities throughout Canada; and in Hong Kong, China, and London, England. A gathering for family and Friends will take place at 1: 00 p.m. on January 12, 2008, at 54 Paisley Street in Guelph. For further information, please call Gilchrist Chapel in Guelph, at (519) 824-0031. In lieu of flowers, kindly consider a donation to Amnesty International Canada, or Oxfam Canada.

TRAVIS- MILLER, Samuel Jonathan
Samuel Jonathan TRAVIS- MILLER Son, brother, grand_son, hero. Born October 7, 2004, in Guelph. Died October 7 in London, Ontario, of complications following two liver transplants, aged 3.
By Sarah TRAVIS, Page L8
Sam was born at 2: 01 a.m. on the Thursday before Thanksgiving, a healthy and bouncing 8 pounds, 10 ounces.
He was a chubby, hungry, normal baby. But at 15 months he fell suddenly and catastrophically ill, with no explanation. The mystery illness resulted in blood clots in his liver, necessitating a liver transplant in July, 2006.
His body rejected that liver and he waited 11 months for another transplant, followed immediately by a third when the second liver failed.
Sam spent weeks at McMaster Children's Hospital followed by months at the Children's Hospital of Western Ontario. Although he slept in his own house many nights, his days were a blur of hospital visits and procedures.
Despite pain, despite tubes in his nose, chest and stomach, Sam always laughed. He loved Blue's Clues, balloons, bubbles, stars, helicopters and his big brother, Ben. He didn't learn to walk until he was 2½, but his physical limitations never stopped him from having a good time.
During one medical procedure, as Sam began to wake up from being sedated, he looked around at the nurses and surgeon and said with complete sincerity, "Thanks for coming, thanks for coming!"
Sam always participated in his medical care. When his intravenous machine (affectionately called Ivy) beeped, he would stand at the door of his hospital room and shout, "Nurse! Nurse! Ivy is occluded," which meant the flow of intravenous fluid was blocked. But he also learned to say the important things: "I love you" and "thank you" and "want to cuddle."
He will be remembered for his smile, his dimpled cheek, his hair standing up on end and the wicked sparkle in his blue eyes. Sam was affectionate, wise beyond his years and a joy to those who shared his little life.
This little life was lived big. Thanks to e-mail, hundreds of Friends, relatives and acquaintances were kept informed of Sam's illness. He taught us how to be brave and how to cry knowing that a smile is just around the corner. And we learned about other heroes - the health professionals who saved him time and again, and the families who donated the organs of loved ones who died tragically young.
Sam died on his third birthday when his heart stopped following two transplants in 72 hours. We miss him every minute. Yet we are blessed by his legacy. When Sammy sensed we were sad, he would come up and whisper, in the words of Blue's Clues, "Don't give up, just go on." We will go on. And we will give thanks that our lives were so enriched and changed by our little miracle.
Rev. Sarah TRAVIS is Sam's mother.

Hundreds mourn 2007's first homicide victim
Family members comfort each other after the funeral of Jean SPRINGER, killed when she opened her front door on New Year's Day. Vince TALOTTA / Toronto Star
By Thulasi SRIKANTHAN, Staff Reporter
In the cold spitting rain, hundreds of mourners gathered at a Scarborough church to pay their respects to Jean SPRINGER, Toronto's first homicide victim of 2007.
Row upon row was packed with teary-eyed mourners at Morningstar Christian Fellowship, who prayed and remembered the 60-year-old as a kind and loving mother of two.
"She was selfless," said her friend, Judy SUTHERLAND, as she stood in the cold after the service. "We will miss her but we will celebrate her life."
SPRINGER was shot to death shortly after she opened her door on New Year's Day.
Altaf IBRAHIM, 26, was arrested in connection with the shooting. He is believed to have been a friend of one of SPRINGER's sons.
At the church yesterday, family members hugged each other as they waited in the cold and rain, watching the casket being loaded into the hearse.
Many wiped away tears as they left the service where two photo collages were on display, filled with pictures of SPRINGER through the years, from her childhood days -- to dancing with her husband, Arden-Ray.
A friend, Judy INGRID, said SPRINGER lived her life in a way that inspired others to want to "model our life after her."
With her warmth, faith and her smile, Ingrid said SPRINGER drew many to her.
"From this turnout, you can see."
SPRINGER was born February 9, 1948 to Alva and Gwendolyn REID in the Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago. As a young girl, she shone academically.
Eventually, her academic aptitude led her to win a scholarship to Bishop Anstey High School.
In the years following, she went to Trinidad's Mausica Teachers' College where she graduated with a teacher's diploma.
After meeting and marrying her husband, she moved to Canada where she became a bookkeeper and accountant after teaching for a few years.
In Canada, she raised her two sons, Anton and Anwelle.
SPRINGER was also well known in her community as a woman with a strong Christian faith. She often led prayers and took part in the women's ministry at her local church.
"She was a very inspiring lady," said Sandra MILLER, another friend who had come to pay her respects.
A viewing for Friends and family was also held yesterday at Ogden Funeral Home.
