MARTON DE MURANYVAR, Tibor Konrad
(March 17, 1928-October 13, 2007)
Passed away quietly and with dignity in the company of his loving wife Irma MARTON and his children Les and Audrey. "Napi's" memory will be cherished by his grandchildren James, Alexandra (Lexi) and little Christopher, who were blessed and enriched for having enjoyed his warm hugs and wise counsel. He will be missed by his brother Miklos MARTON and his sister Sara MIHALYI, along with his nieces and nephews living in New Jersey and Hungary.
Tibor was born in Szeged, Hungary, the second of 4 children of Dr. Lazlo and Sara MARTON. He met his beloved wife Irma in 1955 and together the following year they escaped the turmoil of the Hungarian Revolution. They were wed in Vienna, Austria in 1957, shortly thereafter embarking on a journey of emigration to their new homeland Canada. Tibor found work first in Vancouver and then with the Canadian National Railway in Prince Rupert, British Columbia where Les was born. Moving back across Canada two years later, they settled in Toronto where Tibor completed his engineering studies and commenced a distinguished career as a civil engineer for the City of Toronto's Public Works department. Following his retirement in 1993, Tibor enjoyed travelling with Irma, playing tennis, sailing and entertaining his Friends with his unique sense of humour. Above all else, Tibor took great pride and pleasure in his family life. With Irma by his side, he forged a loving bond with each of his grandchildren. They lit up his life and he, theirs.
The family wishes to express their heartfelt gratitude to the staff at Saint Michael's Hospital Palliative Care Unit, where Tibor spent the final weeks of his life. The genuine warmth and steadfast compassion shown by the nurses, volunteer staff and doctors made his final home as comfortable as possible.
A service will be held at 11 a.m. on Thursday October 18, 2007 at the Turner and Porter Yorke Chapel 2357 Bloor St. W. (east of the Jane subway) with a reception to follow. In lieu of flowers the family would encourage donations to Saint Michael's Hospital Palliative Care Unit.

'Kings of hearts' killed in crash
By Isabel TEOTONIO, Henry STANCU, Joanna SMITH, Staff reporters
They were known as the "kings of hearts," three Friends who were inseparable.
But on Saturday that came to a deadly end when the van they were in on Major Mackenzie Doctor in Vaughan unaccountably drifted into a lane of oncoming traffic and hit a car being driven by an off-duty York Region police officer.
Waleed SHAUKAT, 17, and his friend Sulman YUSAF, 19, were killed, along with the police officer, Davis AHLOWALIA, 28. The third teen, identified as Mohammed MATTU, 19, was in a coma last night.
It was a devastating end for what was supposed to be a fun night out celebrating a friend's birthday, said relatives of SHAUKAT, one of the teens pronounced dead on the scene.
"All three of these guys were kings -- kings of hearts -- they always had a smile and they all made people happy," said Waleed's older brother Omar SHAUKAT at the family home in Maple last night.
He described his younger brother as a happy teenager. "He had his whole life ahead of him, he was hard-working, helped out at home and everyone in this area knew him and loved him."
Waleed's father, Ali SHAUKAT, last saw his son Friday afternoon. The teen had just cashed his cheque from Tim Hortons and showed up at home with $420 in cash.
As was customary, the teen handed over all of his money to his mother and said, "Don't worry, mom, I'm young and I'll take care of you," recalled the father. Then he asked his father for $5 so that his wallet wouldn't be empty when he went out with Friends that night.
But the fun night out ground to a deadly halt around 3: 30 a.m. on Major Mackenzie Dr., west of Pine Valley Dr., when a minivan carrying the teens crashed head-on into a Honda Civic driven by AHLOWALIA.
Both cars burst into flames. SHAUKAT and YUSAF were pronounced dead at the scene. Their friend, Mattu, was rushed to hospital and was in a coma last night. Also dead at the scene was AHLOWALIA, a 2½-year veteran with the force.
Yesterday, as police continued their investigation, relatives of the teens were struggling to make sense of the horrific crash.
"We are all still in shock," said Ali SHAUKAT, as relatives gathered to comfort the grieving family at their home.
"Waleed was very lovely and very caring," said the father, recalling the generosity of a son who worked full-time to pay the family's rent. "He was the only person taking care of the family… He always respected all of his elders."
The teen was supporting both his parents, his 22-year-old brother Omar, and sisters Sara, 16, and Fyzah 9, said the father.
His uncle, Ahmed MURID, remembered him as a "very friendly guy" with "lots of Friends" who always "worked hard" and still managed to find time to volunteer in the community.
The elder SHAUKAT said he believed the trio of teens, who met in high school, may have been out celebrating MATTU's birthday. He said he did not know the circumstances surrounding the accident but believed YUSAF was the driver of the van. The father said his son dreamed of one day finishing high school and going to university.
In an online Web portfolio posted by Waleed SHAUKAT when he was 15, the teen lists his hobbies as travelling, listening to rap and bhangra music, playing basketball with Friends and going to the cinema. He also writes that he loves watching scary movies at night, meeting new people and chatting on the Internet with Friends and family around the world.
Last night, relatives at the SHAUKAT household said they were mystified by television news reports in the afternoon that MATTU had died in hospital, particularly since some had gone to visit him in the evening. Family of the two other teens could not be reached last night.

HURLEY, Daniel Michael, C.D., LL.M, Ph.D, LL.D, Q.C.
The death of Doctor Daniel Michael HURLEY of Fredericton occurred at the Veteran's Health Unit, Fredericton on the 8th August, 2007. Born May 4th 1929, in Barnaby River, New Brunswick, he was the son of Clara (MAHER) and Daniel HURLEY. Born into a large family in the small farming community of Semiwagon Ridge on the Miramichi, Dan proved to be an outstanding student and athlete. He won a scholarship to Saint Thomas University, then located in Chatham, New Brunswick, and graduated magna cum laude in 1950 as class valedictorian. Commissioned in the Royal Canadian Armoured Corps, Lord Strathcona's Horse Regiment, Dan served in Korea and Japan in 1952-53 with the United Nations Forces. Following an honourable discharge with the rank of Captain, he returned to his scholarly pursuits. With a Beaverbrook Scholarship, he completed his Bachelor of Civil Law at University of New Brunswick and went again abroad to complete a Masters in Law at the London School of Economics. In London he met a stunning and similarly talented young lawyer, Kathleen MURPHY, who was completing her own LL.M at King's College. They married in 1960 and returned to Fredericton where Dan was appointed Assistant Professor of Law at University of New Brunswick Law School and earned the rank of Full Professor by 1970. In his more than 30-year career at University of New Brunswick he served as Associate Dean of Law, sat on numerous committees, continued to practice law, served on various councils and taskforces, and published widely. He was appointed Queen's Counsel in 1989. His tireless commitment to public service kept him active in community and public sector work; he was Chair for many years of the District 26 Board of School Trustees, a member of both provincial and federal Parole Boards, the John Howard Society, Fredericton Children's Aid Society, Friends of the Beaverbrook Art Gallery, Fredericton Foundation Inc, and numerous others. A stalwart supporter of the Liberal Party, he worked as a campaign manager, stood as a candidate, and offered his services in nearly all aspects of local, provincial and federal politics. A man of boundless energy and generosity, Dan strove to achieve excellence, fairness and justice in all his endeavors. His greatest love and reward was to serve the needs of others, be they his family, his students, his colleagues or his country. He was predeceased eight months ago by his beloved wife, Kate. Also predeceased by three brothers: Martin Maher HURLEY, John Leo HURLEY and James David HURLEY; one sister, Sister Phoebe HURLEY; and an infant daughter. He leaves his son Daniel and daughter-in-law Annika ROSE of Whitehorse and his daughter Clarissa of Fredericton. Also survived by four brothers: Col. Ray HURLEY of Ottawa, Peter HURLEY of Miramichi, Joe HURLEY and Anthony HURLEY (Louise) of Toronto, and four sisters: Sister Mary HURLEY and Clarissa HURLEY of Saint John, Alice BILLINGTON (Cliff) of Toronto and Stella RENNEBURG (Ray) of Kamloops, British Columbia. Dan's family extends sincere thanks to the excellent caregiving team at the Veteran's Health Unit. The family will receive visitors at McAdam's Select Community Funeral Home, 160 York Street, Fredericton on Monday, August 13, 2007 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Dunstan's Roman Catholic Church on Tuesday, August 14th, 2007 at 12: 00 noon with Fr.

ACKERMAN, Ralph Leo
Farmer, builder, businessman, father, raconteur. Born April 5, 1926, in Belleville, Ontario Died August 2 in an accident on his farm in Ameliasburgh Township, Prince Edward County, Ontario, aged 81.
By Marianne ACKERMAN, Page L10
My father was a man of aphorisms: The Lord helps those who help themselves. Simpsons doesn't tell Eatons its business. You get what you pay for. It's my way or the highway.
It might have been a talent developed of necessity. An only child, Ralph ACKERMAN married an Irish Catholic, Sus MURPHY, and had six children in 12 years. His signature quips were certainly an effective way into the flow of conversation.
Although his parents were dedicated farmers, he always claimed he'd wanted to escape the land. But a few weeks before his wedding in 1949 his father dropped dead, so the newlyweds carried on.
I can't remember a spring when Dad wasn't planting, or a fall when he didn't agonize over slaughtering one of his prize Charolais cattle. At the same time, he spent decades working shifts at cement plants to support the family before finding his calling as supervisor of maintenance at the Catholic school board.
Judging by the speed of his mental arithmetic and his penchant for scratching figures on the backs of envelopes, he'd have enjoyed business. Half a lifetime later, my mother pestered him to help her launch a religious bookstore in Belleville. He said he was looking forward to a quiet retirement and wanted no part. But not long after, he cashed in his retirement savings to stock The Icon's shelves.
Surely he owed the Lord. Our mother had made up her mind to enter the convent when they met. She told us she was walking with a girlfriend one night when a good-looking fellow slowed his car and offered them a lift. The match sounded inevitable to me as a teenager, I was convinced my father looked like Elvis.
Dad was an excellent storyteller, a powerful eater, a devoted drinker and smoker. He usually went to bed after supper (especially if he didn't like the crowd) and got up before dawn. When Mum died in 1990, we calculated her waking hours and decided she'd outlived him by a decade.
For a hard-living man, he was resilient. He survived an aneurysm in his 70s and years of heart problems. Last winter a turkey gored his hand; an angry cow nearly trampled him. While cutting hay at the height of an August heat wave, he got down from the tractor to fix something. The engine was off but it started to roll, and he was caught under the wheel.
His instructions for the funeral: Keep it short. The last time I saw Dad was an afternoon in March, at his favourite pub. He'd just been to an old friend's funeral and was full of praise for the eulogy given by the man's son. He needn't have worried. The man of few words will have his echo.
Marianne ACKERMAN is Ralph's daughter.

MURPHY, Jim
Film distributor, mentor, friend. Born November 13, 1947, in New York. Died April 13 in Toronto, following prolonged health problems, aged 59.
By David WEAVER and Dan LYON, Page L8
No matter whether Jim worked for companies large or small, his lifelong enthusiasm for filmmaking was undisguised.
He was a man utterly without an agenda - other than the promotion of good work - and when he believed in a project he was relentless in his efforts to see that movie made and distributed to its maximum potential.
This is no small achievement in English Canada, where the film industry constantly struggles to survive next to Hollywood. Jim never lost his taste for the battle, nor his conviction that in the long run, Canadian film would be recognized in our culture and around the world.
Even a limited list of the films Jim helped to reach the screen is astonishing: Margaret's Museum, Eclipse, Dead Ringers, Better than Chocolate, Ginger Snaps, The Art of War, Century Hotel, Suspicious River and Who Loves the Sun to name just a few. He was also largely responsible for finding and promoting the New Zealand film Once Were Warriors, which became an international success.
More important, though, was the sheer force of his faith in an individual as a filmmaker. Many producers and directors have related how, when self-doubt laid them low, he would remind them of their successes, make light of failures and point out that it was rare to be able to express yourself in this powerful medium.
He was equally effective as a cheerleader for his marketing and distribution colleagues. Such sermons almost always occurred over a beer. Or two beers. Or more than two. And that was part of the experience of knowing Jim as well - the pleasure of his company. It was a pleasure dozens of students would come to share through the classes he taught at Ryerson University and the National Screen Institute.
When required to surmount the odds, Jim would utilize both his superior intellect and his 6-foot-3 bulk to get in the face of anyone standing in his way. When his voice jokingly boomed "I blame you!" he was a force to be reckoned with.
Passionate about his love of Canada, Jim was born an American. He grew up in New York during the late sixties. He told remarkable stories about volunteering to teach in troubled neighbourhoods and finding himself under the protection of the Black Panthers when violence broke out. After he came to Canada, his first residence was at Toronto's notorious Rochdale College. It was all grist for Jim's storytelling mill.
Jim was, in the end, a man who made his passion his living. But even more than that, he made it possible for others to live their passion as well.
David WEAVER and Dan LYON are colleagues and Friends of Jim MURPHY.

With Betty, Bob led an adventurous life and during their travels they made many wonderful Friends in Waterloo, Ontario; London, England; Bermuda; and Victoria, British Columbia. Bob was a man of many interests and hobbies. As he noted he spent a good deal of time building a model railway, including engines from scratch and rolling stock. After retirement he built various sundials and also spent many happy hours golfing with Betty.
Bob gave generously to various charities and in lieu of flowers please make a donation to your favourite charity. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, November 10th at 3: 00 p.m. at St. Luke's Anglican Church, 3821 Cedar Hill Cross Road, Victoria.
