DEGRACE, Margaret French (née MacLAUCHLAN)

Peggy was born July 29, 1924 in Kentville, Nova Scotia, the daughter of the late Roderick and Marian (FRINK) MacLAUCHLAN. She spent her early years with her family in Rothesay, New Brunswick, Wolfville and Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. She served in the Royal Canadian Navy as a Wren (Women's Royal Canadian Naval Service) from 1944 to 1945, working in Halifax, and in 1945 married Robert F. DEGRACE of Seattle, Washington.

She took up curling at the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Curling Club in Ottawa and developed a love for this sport which stayed with her all her life. She was interested in everything: politics, sports, community events, a good game of cribbage, and, above all, the well- being of family and Friends. In 1984 Peggy and Bob moved to Wolfville, Nova Scotia where they renewed old Friendships and developed many new ones. In Wolfville, Peggy was a member of Saint_John's Anglican Church and worked faithfully for the church. She helped with Meals on Wheels, served on the local hospital auxiliary, and canvassed for many important charities.
Peggy loved her cottage at Sebim Beach, and nothing pleased her more than a sunny day, a warm tide, and lots of children and dogs.
She is survived by her sons John (Judy SIMMS,) Prince George, British Columbia, and Bill, Bermuda; daughters Barbara THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON (Jim), Kingston, Ontario, Mary KEIRSTEAD (Rod), Caledonia, Nova Scotia, and Anne (Phillip JACKSON,) Nelson, British Columbia her sister, Joan TAPLEY, Cockeysville, Maryland; ten grandchildren several nieces and nephews.

He will be sorely missed by his 7 nieces and 3 nephews, who all adored him. Fondly remembered by all who knew and worked with him, especially his socialist comrades and friend Doctor Robert Hawkins. At age 19 Bob was left a paraplegic after a car accident in Iraq where he was traveling. He rallied and moved on with his life with determination and extraordinary courage, never thinking of himself as disabled. Bob brought energy and commitment to every facet of his life. A lifelong political activist, he worked hard in the fight against social injustice with his optimistic beliefs in the ability of working people to improve their world and create human solidarity. With an ever inquisitive mind, he loved music, astronomy, scientific discovery, art, travel, and family reunions. His great inner strength and humanity touched all those who knew him and he enriched the lives of all of us who loved him. A family memorial gathering will be held after cremation and celebrations of Bob's life will be held in the New Year.

Charmer, rascal, film producer, ad pioneer
He had hit movies and renegade ideas, but was best at making the deals, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S9
An advertising and film pioneer, Peter SIMPSON loved making deals and bringing projects together, but he hated the red tape that is so much a part of the Canadian film industry.
He was a charmer and a rascal who loved talking, drinking and eating, but he also expanded the business of filmmaking in Canada and probably hired more actors, directors and technical people than any other producer. His credits range from establishing the first international media buying agency to producing horror films such as the Prom Night franchise to Regeneration (based on novelist Pat Barker's trilogy) to the CTV television series The Eleventh Hour.
Vancouver-born actor Jason Priestly met Mr. SIMPSON in Los Angeles in 1997 about a role in The Highwayman, the first of four films the two made together. "He had an incredible ability to walk into a room and sell people on a project," Mr. Priestly said.
Although they met through work, they became Friends. "He was an incredibly avuncular and jovial man. He loved to laugh, to eat sushi and to drink Heineken. He was a spectacular man."
Peter SIMPSON was born in Port Glasgow, Scotland, the youngest of three sons of a grocer. His father immigrated to Toronto in 1952 and found a job at Eaton's and a place to live in Downsview, in the northern part of Toronto. His mother arrived at the end of the school year with 10-year-old Peter and his brothers. A sister, Marjorie, who died in a car accident in 1969, was born in Canada.
After graduating from high school, Peter attended the University of Toronto, but left to work as a junior buyer for the Young and Rubicam advertising agency.
That's where he met David HARRISON, another "renegade" who shared his love of the zeitgeist, Heineken and the ad business. Mr. SIMPSON quickly moved on to Ogilvy and Mather, then became media director at Stanfield, Johnson and Hill.
During this period, Mr. SIMPSON met and married his first wife, Gordene BYERS. Together, they had four sons: Kerry, Brock, Colin and Bradley. After 14 years, the marriage broke up. In the mid-1980s, Mr. SIMPSON married television producer Ilana FRANK. They had two children: daughter Quinn and son Hayden.
In the 1960s, ad agencies created ads, planned campaigns and placed ads, but the business was getting too complex for this concentration to be efficient. Mr. SIMPSON had the idea to separate these functions and, in 1969, he founded Media Buying Services to purchase advertising space and time for clients. "He was the pioneer," Mr. HARRISON said. "He was a very important guy in the entertainment business."
Media Buying Services quickly acquired clients such as Playtex, Dominion Stores and K-tel, a Winnipeg company headed by Philip Kives that was opening an office in Britain.
"The expertise Peter put in place was not a small factor in the success of K-tel, first in the United Kingdom and then all over Europe," said Ian Howard, the first managing director of K-tel International (UK) Ltd., in an e-mail message. "I could never have concentrated on the rapid growth of the company if the television buying was also a part of the infrastructure." Within five years of its founding, Media Buying Services had seven offices in Canada, Britain and the United States.
By the early 1970s, Mr. SIMPSON had moved into the film promotion business and was spending a lot of time in Los Angeles. After forming Norstar Filmed Entertainment, he started making movies. He became a pioneer again, in making made-for-television movies such as The Sea Gypsies, which he sold to Warner Brothers and which earned a 30-per-cent share when it was broadcast on NBC.
His second film was an even bigger success. Prom Night, which borrowed on the success of Brian de Palma's 1976 film Carrie, starred Jamie Lee Curtis and Leslie Nielson. Released in 1980, it was unabashedly commercial, spawned three sequels and set Canadian film box-office records.
From promotion to production to distribution, Mr. SIMPSON was involved in every part of the nascent Canadian film business, including the Toronto Film Festival, where he served on the board from 1981 to 1990. That's one of the ways he came to know another Scottish immigrant, filmmaker Bill MARSHALL.
"When I started the film festival," Mr. MARSHALL recalled in a telephone conversation, "we used to have a daily session that was on Rogers [cable television] and Peter and I would drink Heineken and excoriate the industry," including the television networks, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission and the federal Telefilm funding agency. "Nobody was safe from our rude and grumpy comments."
They wanted to make films, and railed at public officials who weren't eager to finance their projects, no questions asked. "He wouldn't do anything unless it was his way," Mr. MARSHALL said.
"His first big hit was Prom Night, so he always thought he was a great movie picker," Mr. MARSHALL said. But what he was really good at was putting the financing together - although he "was never very good at getting money out of Telefilm." For one of his films, he put in the credits that it was made "in spite of the Canadian Film Development Corporation," Telefilm's earlier name.
Despite that conflict, "I always enjoyed my encounters with Peter SIMPSON. He was as frisky as they come," said filmmaker Peter Pearson, Telefilm's executive director from 1985 to 1987.
Politically, Mr. SIMPSON supported the Progressive Conservative Party. In the 1980s, when Brian Mulroney was prime minister, Mr. SIMPSON and partner Roger Nantel of Montreal set up Media Canada, which won a contract to place all federal government advertising in newspapers and magazines and on radio and television.
In all, Mr. SIMPSON made close to 40 movies and television films, including The Rage, Men with Guns, Pale Saints, Grizzly Falls and Cold Comfort. He was nominated for the Alexander Korda Award for best British film for Regeneration in 1998, won a Gemini for The Eleventh Hour in 2005 and received a Lifetime Achievement Award for his "unwavering commitment" from the Academy of Canadian Cinema in 2004.
Although he gave up smoking two decades ago, he was diagnosed with lung cancer last September. Treatment failed to defeat the disease, and it was evident by February that the cancer was spreading. Even so, Mr. SIMPSON was keenly involved in putting together a television movie about comedian John Candy before he was admitted to hospital about two weeks ago.
Peter SIMPSON was born in Port Glasgow, Scotland, on May 29, 1943. He died at Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto on June 5, 2007. He was 64. He leaves his second wife, Ilana Frank, six children and three brothers. A private funeral is planned, to be followed by a memorial service in September.

Famous for his Canadian Football League 'sleeper play,' he became Ottawa's local hero
In November, 1960, he executed an unusual and dangerous manoeuvre that put the Rough Riders on the road to the Grey Cup. He turned down two National Football League teams and later entered politics
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S6
November 20, 1960, Toronto's Exhibition Stadium. The Canadian Football League's Eastern Conference final was being played, with the Argonauts pitted against the Ottawa Rough Riders. It was a two-game affair, with the point total to decide the outcome. Ottawa had won the first game, 33-21, but in the second, they were trailing 20-14 in the fourth quarter. One more Toronto touchdown would send the Argos to the Grey Cup.
Then came a manoeuvre so outrageous, it was actually banned: the famous "sleeper play," in which Ottawa quarterback Ron Lancaster spotted tight end Bob SIMPSON during a player exchange that no one else noticed, least of all the Toronto defence.
Only Mr. Lancaster, who went on to become a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation sports announcer and Canadian Football League head coach, can call it: "It was kind of crazy," he recalled in a telephone interview from Hamilton. "We were in our own end. Toronto was winning. If they score again, they're gonna beat us, so we need to move the football.
"We ran a play, and getting up off the field, heading back to the huddle, I ain't got nothing to do. So I'm just kind of looking around, and Bobby's walking to the sidelines. He just sort of walked. He wasn't drawing attention to himself. It was a spontaneous thing. He just kind of had his head down, his hands on his hips, just kind of walking to the sidelines - and he stopped. Didn't do anything elaborate. Just kind of blended in.
"And I look at him and he gives me this sign. He just stands there. So I hurry up and tell 'em to snap the ball. I throw it to him and he runs [from] somewhere around our 25 down to their 25. Next play, we run it down to the 1, put it in the end zone and scored, beat 'em 21-20, won the East and went to the Grey Cup and won it."
It was a jaw-dropping play for the fans, the most famous sleeper play ever executed in the Canadian Football League - and also the last. The league outlawed it immediately. But it was typical of the kind of guy Mr. SIMPSON was: brash, bold, cheeky, fun.
A swift runner with huge, glue-like hands and impressive playing numbers, he "was as great an all-around athlete as you're going to find," Mr. Lancaster said. But he was always remembered for that play.
"Over the years, there must have been a quarter of a million fans who came up to me and said they were in Lansdowne Park [in Ottawa] and saw the sleeper play," Mr. SIMPSON once told his friend Pat MacADAM, a sports columnist for the Ottawa Sun. "I didn't have the heart to tell them the game was played in Toronto."
A native of Windsor, Ontario, Mr. SIMPSON was a year old when his father walked out on his mother. At Patterson Collegiate and later Assumption College, now federated with the University of Windsor, he excelled at basketball, football and track, running the 100-yard dash in 10 seconds flat. He played on two provincial championship basketball teams in high school before joining the famed Tillsonburg Livingstons.
He was tearing up the field for the Windsor Rockets of the Ontario Rugby Football Union when the Rough Riders snapped him up in 1950. But he was granted leave to play for Canada's basketball team at the 1952 Helsinki Olympics. He played five games but Canada was eliminated.
In his 12-year Canadian Football League career, he caught 274 passes, including a single-season career-high 47 in 1956, for a total of 6,034 yards. He scored 65 touchdowns - 12 of them defensive. The record stood until Terry Evanshan broke it in 1975. He set another record for most yards receiving in a game (258) in a 1956 contest against Toronto.
He was an Eastern division all-star eight times at four different positions - end, flying wing, running back and defensive back - and was a three-time nominee for the Schenley Award given to the league's most outstanding Canadian. He was runner-up in 1956, the year he was also nominated as the Canadian Football League's most outstanding player.
Mr. SIMPSON was inducted into the Canadian Football League Hall of Fame in 1976, the Ottawa Sports Hall of Fame in 1998 and the Windsor-Essex Sports Hall of Fame the same year.
With his skills on both sides of the line and his leadership as co-captain (with Kaye Vaughan), Ottawa won Grey Cups in 1951 and "He had these great big hands," remembered George Brancato, who played with Mr. SIMPSON in Ottawa and against him in Montreal. "He could catch the ball. He had a real soft touch. He knew the game so well. And he loved life. He enjoyed himself all the time."
He also famously turned down two offers from National Football League teams in the United States. The first came from the New York Giants, who noticed Mr. SIMPSON after they became the first National Football League team to play outside the U.S. on August 12, 1950, when they met Ottawa in a preseason exhibition game at Lansdowne Park. New York won 27-6 and wined and dined Mr. SIMPSON - unheard of for a Canadian player at the time.
The story, according to Mr. MacADAM, is that he listened to his mother, who said to him: "Do you want to be a little fish in a big pond?" and turned down the Giants. Besides, the money wasn't nearly as good as he was making in the Canadian Football League. At his peak, Mr. SIMPSON probably earned $10,000 a year.
Around the same time, he turned down an offer from the Baltimore Colts. Ottawa sportswriter Earl McRAE waxed, "Imagine: Johnny Unitas passing to Bob SIMPSON."
Mr. SIMPSON's career ended in 1962 after a car accident with a tractor that dislocated his already bashed-up hip. After retirement, he was elected to Ottawa City Council, representing Wellington Ward for two terms. "It was right after the Grey Cup in 1960 and he was the hero," retired sportswriter Gerry Redmond told The Windsor Star. "He could have been elected prime minister."
He went on to a variety of occupations. He owned a cleaning company for a time, coached a local high-school football team and worked in the Rough Riders head office as a public relations man. He bought the Locanda restaurant on Laurier Avenue from Paul Anka's family. "It was a great watering hole and restaurant but Bobby overestimated Ottawa nightlife," Mr. MacAdam wrote in the Ottawa Sun. He also "tore up one too many of his Friends' bar tabs." He opened a night spot, Club 70, his Ottawa jersey number, but it stayed empty.
Still, he never lost his outsized zest for life. "Any time Bobby SIMPSON was around, you heard him," Mr. Lancaster said. "He was just naturally loud. He was really a fun person to be around. If you were around him, I guarantee you're going to have a good time."
Mr. MacADAM had similar memories: "You could hear him coming a block away. Make that two blocks. You knew you were not going to receive a handshake. His standard greeting was a slap across the back that threatened to separate your shoulder blades. A crushing bear hug was an automatic. Bobby SIMPSON didn't just fill a room he lit it up with his infectious good humour."
He and a group of rambunctious beer-drinking buddies were institutions at the Belle Claire Hotel's bar and, when it closed, the Churchill Arms on Carling Avenue.
"Good-natured insults flew fast and furious and Bobby was the butt of a few memorable ones," Mr. MacADAM wrote. "But he had a good sense of humour and gave as good as he received."
As with many former athletes his weight ballooned, to 270 pounds. When a doctor advised that he drop to 180, Mr. Brancato exclaimed: "His bones weigh 180 pounds!"
One day, Mr. SIMPSON walked into the Arms, grinning like a Cheshire cat.
As Mr. MacADAM related, "he told us the greatest honour he had ever received" was bestowed on him at the annual Easter Seals "Timmy" event for disabled children at Maple Leaf Gardens. Traditionally, "Timmy" was carried from the back of the hall to a platform by wrestler (Whipper) Billy Watson. But Mr. Watson was recovering from surgery and the honour fell to Mr. SIMPSON.
"I never felt so proud or so humble," Mr. SIMPSON said.
For 14 years, he worked as a clerk at various liquor stores in Ottawa. In 2000, Ottawa sports fans celebrated an event billed as "No. 70 turns 70."
Did he miss playing? "Every day," said his wife, Mary. "He would have paid them to play. I don't think he ever found anything really to replace that. He just loved it."
That his glory days were long past never seemed to get him down, though. In fact, there was a Dixieland band at his funeral, playing You Gotta Be a Football Hero.
Robert Lee SIMPSON was born April 20, 1930, in Windsor, Ontario He died of cancer on November 27, 2007, in Ottawa. He was 77. He leaves his wife, Mary, daughters Lynn and Mary Leigh, sons Rob, Gary and Mark, and seven grandchildren.
