"BOX" 2007 Obituary


BOXER  BOXERMAN 

BOXER o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-12-20 published
STAPLETON, Arnold Grieve
Joined his wife Helen (née PRESTON) and soul mate of 49 years on Wednesday, December 19, 2007. Born August 2, 1918 in Stratford, Ontario, he is survived by his second wife Mary MacLEOD, brother Bill, brother-in-law Hugh SHORTILL, children Joan BOXER (Richard,) Jeff (Patti,) Diana (Bill TAILOR/TAYLOR,) and Arn (Peggy.) Grandchildren Sarah, John, Todd, Marley, Preston and Katie will sorely miss their Poppa. Uncle Arn leaves giant shoes to fill in the lives of the many Stapleton/Preston relatives spread throughout the world. As corporate lawyer (having graduated from Osgoode Hall in 1950), Director of Personnel and chief labour contract negotiator for General Motors of Canada over a 29 year career, A.G. was the youngest director in the company's history. His was the voice of reason - the calm amidst many a storm during one of the most challenging eras in the United Auto Workers/General Motors contract evolution. Many said that Arn's unique ability to compartmentalize complicated concepts won over both union foes and management associates alike. He was able to maintain composure by utilizing a wonderful sense of humour centered around a quick wit and well placed one-liners. A man of few words, when he spoke, people listened. An English scholar (Words Are Important!), a history and travel buff, a Wagnerian connoisseur, a lover of opera and Shakespeare and one heck of a bridge and chess player, Arn was a 50+ year subscriber to the Stratford Festival (his second most favorite place after the family cottage at Inverhuron Beach). Always willing to give his ample talents to worthy causes, Arn served as Chairman and long time director of the Oshawa General Hospital, board member of both St. Andrew's Church in Oshawa and First-St. Andrew's United Church in London, and was a member in standing of the Law Society of Canada. In the words of his beloved Shakespeare -"to thine own self be true". A celebration of Arn's life will be held at First-St. Andrew's United Church, 350 Queens Avenue at Waterloo, London on Saturday, January 5 at 1: 00 p.m. Reception to follow. Cremation and Spring interment at Avondale Cemetery, Stratford. Memorial contributions to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 633 Colborne Street, Suite 150, London, Ontario N6B 2V3 would be gratefully appreciated.
