BANKES, John " Jack" Maxwell
Died on June 15th, 2007 at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in his 92nd year. Loving husband of Betty Jean. Exemplary role model for, and devoted father to, Leslie SHIKAZE (Albert,) Joanne BANKES and John F. BANKES (Pamela.) Grandfather of Schuyler, Daniel, Stephen, David and Nancy. Served in the Canadian Navy in World War 2 aboard the H.M.C.S. Calgary and H.M.C.S. Toronto. Wounded on the High Seas. A career banker, Jack was proud of his long association as an officer with the Royal Bank of Canada. His Bank postings included Vancouver, Hamilton, Calgary, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Montreal and Toronto. Jack reminisced often about his landmark business trips in 1956 to Russia and in 1958 around the world, including stops in China, with James Muir, Chairman and President of the Royal. His contribution to launching the Bank's business development efforts in the oil sector in Alberta set a high standard for future generations of bankers. Following retirement from the Bank, Jack assumed director and advisory roles for a number of diverse businesses including Manufacturers Hanover, Monsanto Canada, Majestic Pipelines, Canadian Schenley, A.E. Ames, Laker Air and Drivers Jonas. Jack treasured his many Friends. Among others, his circle of Friendships revolved around his family, the Bank, Stoney Lake, Mulmur Hills, his non-profit roles (for organizations such as Quetico Foundation, the Canadian Opera Company, Pearson College and others) and his many social and sports clubs in Calgary, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto and Naples Florida. He loved his swimming, curling, golf, tennis and birdwatching. A very active and loyal churchman, Jack assumed senior lay positions at Timothy Eaton Memorial Church and St. Peters-on-the-Rock. Jack will be remembered for his sense of humour, his integrity, his loyalty, his generosity, his dedication, his wonderful gift to tell stories and, above all, his kindness. A memorial service to celebrate Jack's life will be held at Timothy Eaton Memorial Church on Tuesday, June 26th at 11: 00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, Jack would have been so pleased and honoured if you would consider a donation to the music program at Timothy Eaton Memorial Church (230 St. Clair Avenue West, Toronto, Ontario M4V 1R5) or to the scholarship funds in his name at Queen's University (Faculty of Arts and Science, 140 Stuart Street, Kingston, Ontario K7L 3N6) or York University (West Office Building, 4700 Keele Street, Toronto, Ontario M3J 1P3).

BANKOSKY o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-11-27 published
STALKER, Robert
With courage and dignity, Bob STALKER died at the age of 74 on November 25, 2007 in the embrace of his wife and daughters. He will be greatly missed by his wife Jacqueline, his daughters Patti GRAY/GREY, Lynn PRESTON, and Bobbi ÉTHIER, their spouses, Bob BANKOSKY, Brian PRESTON, and Mike ÉTHIER, his grand_sons Jamie GRAY/GREY, Jeremy GRAY/GREY and Paul DESCHAMBAULT, his brothers Stan and George and members of his extended family. Robert STALKER was born in 1933 in Broughty Ferry and spent his childhood in Scotland. At the age of 14, he boarded the R.M.S. Aquitania with his family and headed for Pier 21 in Halifax. Like other immigrants to Canada after the second world war, Robert and his family had to spend their first few years on a farm. As soon as possible, however, his parents opened their own corner grocery store in Midland, Ontario and Bob himself escaped farming by joining the Air Force. At the age of 16, Bob met Jacqueline DAOUST at a high school graduation dance. They dated and married in Ottawa two years later after he was established in the Air Force and she had graduated from teacher training at Ottawa University. Their 55 years of marriage were filled with joy and happiness plus a fair bit of challenge and accommodation due to Air Force transfers which had the family living in eighteen different homes in Canada, the U.S., and Europe during Bob's thirty years in the service. Finally settling in Winnipeg by choice, Major STALKER retired from the Air Force in 1980, took Easter weekend off, and then began a second career with the Federal Government. His next and last retirement in 1984 enabled him to pursue new challenges. He continued running or walking five miles a day and also, through diligent hard work and persistence, became a vintner 'extraordinaire' which his family and Friends wholeheartedly appreciated. Retirement enjoyment increased with the 1993 purchase of a villa in Florida and his wife's retirement in 1995. The villa, named Palybo after their children Pat, Lynn, and Bobbi, was the centre of activity for all of the extended family and Friends. This sanctuary from cold Canadian winters became a very special place where everyone was welcome. Bob loved the ocean, the outdoors, classical music, walking along the beach, and being with his family, including visiting animal members. He was an avid reader and always had an Economist at hand and a history book close by. After retiring from the service, he also volunteered for political candidates that he believed in and worked for political parties he supported. Despite annual physical checkups throughout his life, prostate cancer was only diagnosed in December 2005. Bob STALKER will be greatly missed not only by his family but also by all of those who knew him. The family extends sincere thanks to Doctor Bennett at the Health Action Centre, the staff at Cancer Care Manitoba, and especially to each and every caring dedicated staff member of 3 East Palliative Care wing at Riverview Health Centre. Cremation has taken place and, according to his wishes, no service is being held at this time. As an expression of sympathy, donations may be made to Cancer Care Manitoba or to 3 East Palliative Care, Riverview Health Centre Foundation, Morley Avenue, Winnipeg R3L 2P4.

Cliff never wanted his many activities brought forward but those who knew him were well aware of all he contributed to so many organizations over his lifetime. One of the hardest things for our family has been to agree to his wishes when we are all so proud of his many accomplishments. However, we know what they were, and we know the man he was. A wonderful husband, father, and grandfather and a true friend to many. He always said, 'this is what people should aspire to!'.

HUFF, Gordon MAC (February 20, 1917-August 24, 2007)
'Mac Celebrating His 90th'
It is with sadness we announce the death of Gordon Mac HUFF, a man who gave generously to his family, his Friends and neighbours, and to his community. Born in Chatham, Ontario, over the years Mac lived in Kent Bridge, Hamilton, London, Toronto, Montreal, and Ottawa. Mac had a 'brilliant career' as a top salesman for Addressograph Multigraph where one of his major accomplishments was the development and sale of a machine to print postal money orders, which ended up in every postal outlet in Canada. And in his very active social life, Mac helped to found the first ski club in London, Ontario, he was an early member of the Ottawa Hunt Club, and a longstanding and faithful member of the Rideau Kiwanis. After his retirement Mac provided countless volunteer hours building custom adaptive equipment for the Ottawa Children's Treatment Centre. His great passions for woodworking led him to join Ottawa's wood tur ners' community as well. Mac was predeceased by his beloved wife Angela (née NEUMANN) and his brother Jim (Frances BURTON.) He is survived by his nieces Katheleen (Jake BANKY), Margaret (Peter HUFF- ROUSSELLE) and Elizabeth (Jamie SARGENT.) 'Uncle Mac' spread bad jokes and good humour wherever he went and was a much-loved favourite of his grand-nieces and grandnephews. He regularly terrorized the west coast on board his old pal Bob McCollum's boat and could claim full responsibility for establishing the tradition of the Sunday-morning Caesar among the Gulf Islands of British Columbia. Mac's commanding presence and his extraordinary sense of fun will be missed by his family and by his many Friends and neighbours on Woodview Crescent, Blackburn Hamlet (Ottawa). The family wishes to express thanks to the employees of the Ottawa General Hospital, the Elizabeth Bruyere Health Centre, and most of all at 'Amica at Bearbrook' - where so many have provided Mac with supportive and skilled care over the past few years. And finally the family would like to express our deepest appreciation to Hugh O'Gorman and to Ellen Philps. Donations in Mac's memory could be given to the Ottawa Children's Treatment Centre Foundation (613.738.4335). A memorial service will be held at Amica at Bearbrook, 2645 Innes Road, Ottawa, at 2: 00 p.m. on September 21, 2007. Condolences/Donations at: mcgarryfamily.ca (613) 233-1143.

As the children grew, she became actively engaged as a board member for many arts organizations including the Shaw Festival and the National Ballet School.
