GOUIN, Jean Yvon " Ivan"
On November 11, 2007 Ivan, beloved husband of the late Carol GOUIN, passed away peacefully.
Ivan was born on February 15, 1916 in Vimy, Alberta. He was the second of seven children born to Rudolph and Rose Alma GOUIN. The family lived in rugged conditions on a small farm. As a teenager during the Great Depression of the 1930's, Ivan experienced the desperation of poverty. The lessons of misery defined his young life and taught Ivan that hard work, persistence and optimism would change his circumstance. Always practical even as a little a boy, Ivan once witnessed a fire and responded to those crying, 'God stop the flames, by saying you pray, I'm getting some water'.
An alter boy to an early mentor, Father Coolin, Ivan learned and lived by the notion, the most important thing was to look after those he loved here and now, not in the hereafter. Throughout his life, generosity flowed from a man who is defined by helping others. In 1938 at the age of 22, Ivan got a job at grain elevator. His salary of $15 a week was shared by his large family whose needs he understood as being more important than his own.
In 1940, Ivan discovered his entrepreneurial talent by purchasing a general store in Vimy with his sister. From those humble beginnings Ivan prospered, never forgetting his commitment to his family and those in need. World War Two interrupted his career as a shop keeper when he joined the Canadian Army and served in Ontario.
After serving in the military and seven years as a merchant, Ivan realized the future of rural Alberta would be roads and cars. Most important he understood this future would bring increased competition to little towns and jeopardize his business and so many others. Ivan sold his store and turned his attention to a career that would make him a pioneer in construction.
Ever the entrepreneur, Ivan noticed farmers in the area were using small bulldozers to clear their land. Most farmers did not have the capital to invest in this equipment so Ivan and his younger brother Bob bought one very old piece of equipment and then another, clearing the land of bush and rock. As business grew, the brothers broadened their horizons and secured work from the Alberta Department of Highways.
On New Years Day 1948, at the age of 31 Ivan went to a party that would change his life forever. At that happy occasion was a beautiful woman named Carol. Originally from Yugoslavia, Carol immigrated to Canada with her family as a child of 4. Ivan was immediately captivated by the vibrant young woman. Three months later they were married and began a family.
In 1951, Ivan and Carol moved their young family to a small house in Edmonton and soon thereafter to the West Edmonton neighbourhood of Valleyview. A home and a life Carol, Ivan and the children would come to cherish. In 1952, Ivan, brother Bob and two partners began work under the name North American Road Builders. Soon the brothers bought out their partners and so began the foundation of a company that expanded throughout Alberta. Twenty years later, in 1972 Bob decided to pursue other interests. Ivan bought Bob's share of the company.
There were many strenuous challenges, all of which Ivan faced with optimism and an unrivalled passion. He knew the business, worked hard to compete and expand. Survival was not always easy in the highly competitive and always risky business of construction. His success was by any standard, outstanding, fuelled by the need to innovate, to compete and to see just over the horizon.
In the late 1970's, Ivan experienced health problems that changed his approach to life and business, spending more time with Carol traveling to southern California to escape Alberta's winters and exploring the world. Ivan was blessed with an immense knowledge of history and politics. He was a voracious reader, affording him an intellectual presence that allowed him tolerance and perspective widely respected throughout his life. Ivan was honest, his ethics were beyond reproach. He had wisdom and grace, was a teacher of all who knew him and a friend of so many. His optimism was infectious. Ivan believed that obstacles in life provided endless opportunity. When it rained making road building difficult he would say, 'rain is why we include contingencies in our budgets, when it does not rain, we are more profitable. And that's just good business.' When faced with competition, Ivan would innovate. When paying taxes, he would remind colleagues 'working is a privilege and taxes remind us of that.' Business was his passion. Carol and his family was his life. He respected others and asked only what he expected of himself. Ivan is survived by his children Elaine BUSCH (Ron), Roger (Peggy), Renee KATZ (Daryl) Colette (Michael), Martin (Sarah). His grandchildren include, Renee, Arden, Justin, Anna, Lauren and Isabelle GOUIN, Britt FRENCH, Harrison and Cloe. Ivan's brothers and sisters include, Giselle, Jennie (deceased), Lucille (deceased), Lomar (deceased), Rolond and Robert. His many nieces and nephews. Ivan will be remembered for his many contributions to Edmonton, to Alberta and to Canada.
A man of substance and charisma, of depth, and always a man whose love of his wife knew no bounds. Ivan died in his 91st year at 11 a.m. on November 11. A fitting tribute to his country and to his wife, Carol whose birthday fell on that same day.
Special thanks to Doctor Allison Theman for her compassion in caring for both Carol and Ivan. And to the Emergency and Intensive Care Units of the U of A and Misericordia Hospitals. The family thanks Ivan's caregiver, Blandina Carilla for her many years of service.
There will be a family memorial service followed by a celebration of his life, for all, at the Royal Mayfair Golf and Country Club on south Groat Road in Edmonton, Thursday, November 15, at 4 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a hospital of your choice. Connelly-McKinley Funeral Home 10011-114 Street Edmonton, Alberta 780.422.2222

Prince Edward Island plant pathologist led the world in potato research and breeding
Although unable to stomach spuds himself, he believed that with some laboratory tinkering the humble tuber could be the answer to beating famine in developing countries
By Douglas McARTHUR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S10
As a boy, Orville PAGE had a bad experience with a potato. He either choked on one or had an allergic reaction. In any case, he never knowingly ate one again.
Yet he was to become one of the world's leading potato researchers and a strong believer in the introduction and expansion of potato production in developing countries as a means of alleviating hunger. The Ontario-born scientist worked in Peru from 1973 to 1985 as the first director of research and deputy director at the International Potato Center. The centre is a multinational institution devoted to reducing poverty through sustainable development of the potato, sweet potato and other root and tuber crops.
Dr. PAGE, known to Friends and co-workers as Ory, had earlier spent 12 years researching potatoes in Fredericton with Agriculture Canada and the University of New Brunswick. And he continued his potato work after his retirement through assignments with a number of development agencies.
As a young man, he was based in Prince Edward Island, Canada's potato capital, where he served as a pilot with the Royal Canadian Air Force during the Second World War. He went on to obtain a doctorate in plant pathology, to teach at the Ontario Agriculture College in Guelph and to spend a number of years researching banana diseases for the United Fruit Co. in both Honduras and the United States.
Colleagues at International Potato Center say Doctor PAGE set the centre's overall research policy while letting his staff get on with their individual projects without interference. They remember him as a charming but tough boss, and as a dedicated scientist with a commitment to feeding the world's burgeoning population and a reputation for looking immaculate -- even when inspecting agriculture projects in remote areas of the Third World. In his spare time, he had a passion for sailing and dabbled in studying sparrows, saying he was intrigued by the small birds' ability to adapt to local conditions anywhere in the world.
"Ory laid the groundwork for a highly recognized international potato research program," says Hubert Zandstra, a fellow Canadian who was International Potato Center's director general from 1991 to 2005. One of Doctor PAGE's major contributions, he says, was the development of sanitary measures that allow genetic material from potatoes to be exchanged among researchers around the world and to be made available for breeding in developing countries. Without those procedures, most countries would refuse entry to specimens taken from live potato plants.
Peter VanderZaag, a Canadian potato breeder, says Doctor PAGE's initial priority at the centre was to collect and classify wild and cultivated species of potato and study their properties. His team then had to find ways to transfer disease-resistant genes from plants that grow wild in the Andes to domesticated varieties, a complicated process because of the genetic makeup of potatoes.
Dr. PAGE also helped further the growing of potatoes from the plants' seeds, rather than from pieces of the tuber as had been the normal practice. This is important in Third World countries because it means all the tubers could be used for food, says Dr. VanderZaag, who was once Southeast Asian regional director with the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research, of which International Potato Center is a member.
Dr. PAGE had a special interest in late blight, the fungal disease that led to one million deaths during the great Irish famine in the mid-1800s, says George Tai, a retired New Brunswick potato researcher. Late blight continues to ravage crops today, and Dr. PAGE worked to find a way to prevent it by building up resistance. Under his guidance, researchers and breeders developed many new potato varieties and introduced them to suitable locations around the world. "To a large extent," says William George BARKER, a retired potato researcher and long-time friend, "the potato presence in the world is largely his doing."
In a 1994 paper published in the Canadian Journal of Plant Pathology, Dr. PAGE explained that potatoes yield more food energy per hectare than cereals and are especially valuable in developing countries that can grow more than one crop a year. The most critical problem in developing countries is the population explosion, he wrote. But potato production in the Third World is limited by the lack of disease and pest controls and the limited availability of chemical fertilizers.
Orville Thomas PAGE grew up in Burlington, Ontario, and learned carpentry skills from his father, English-born Thomas William PAGE, and used them later in life to design and finish a 12-metre wooden sailboat he called Caesar's Ghost. He passed his woodworking skills on to his son, William, a professional carver who lives in New Brunswick.
Orville's mother, Eunice Grace (née BUSCOMBE,) died when the boy was 3. He and a younger sister Grace (now BRIDLE) were raised by their father's second wife, Scottish-born Isobel REID.
The future scientist was not a stellar student at high school and was happy to sign up with the Royal Canadian Air Force when war broke out, says his daughter, Karen MARANTZ. He joined as a mechanic, but soon quit and re-enlisted to be trained as a pilot. He should have been turned down because he was colour-blind, she says. But he avoided detection by memorizing the correct responses to eye tests. Based at No. 1 General Reconnaissance School in Summerside, he flew low flights over coastal waters looking for enemy submarines. He was also the base's chief test pilot. Wartime flying in Prince Edward Island was so dangerous that 98 young airmen died there, mostly as the result of air crashes. While in the service he courted Norma Isobel ELLIS of Summerside and married her in 1944.
After the war he went to Guelph to earn a bachelor of science at the Ontario Agricultural College (then affiliated with the University of Toronto), followed by a masters and PhD from Iowa State College. From 1954 to 1957, he was an associate professor at Ontario Agricultural College. It was there he met Doctor BARKER, then a fellow member of the botany faculty. The pair went on to work together in both Honduras and Fredericton.
While in Guelph, Doctor BARKER, who had also served in the Canadian military, extolled the virtues of "army underwear" and convinced his friend to buy some with him at a surplus store. The pairs they purchased were too constrictive to wear, but became the basis of a long-running joke.
Once while Doctor PAGE was giving a scientific lecture in the United States, his friend dangled a set of army underwear from the balcony on a string. Doctor PAGE retaliated by having a pilot friend drop a package containing army underwear to Doctor BARKER using a parachute. The underwear passed back and forth on special occasions for half a century. At Doctor PAGE's 50th anniversary party, Doctor BARKER had a pair piped in on a silver tray.
From 1957 to 1959, Doctor PAGE worked in La Lima, Honduras, where he conducted research into banana diseases for the United Fruit Co. He brought along his wife and two young children. Mrs. MARANTZ says her parents flipped a coin to decide whether to go or not. At that time, United Fruit, which operated banana plantations, had near-total control of most Central American economies. He continued as a research officer with the United Fruit Co. in Norwood, Massachusetts., from 1959 until 1961.
The family then moved to Fredericton where Doctor PAGE was a research officer with Agriculture Canada's national potato program until 1964 and then a professor and associate dean of science at the University of New Brunswick until 1973. His work at the potato centre in Lima started as a one-year sabbatical from the university, but he ended up staying until his retirement in 1985. He hired staff and directed the work of some 50 PhD-level scientists and their research students. During his career he published 33 scientific papers and served as president of the Canadian Phytopathological Society.
On his retirement, he moved with his wife to a Summerside house that had been built for her parents. But he continued to work as a consultant with International Potato Center and such agencies as Canadian International Development Agency and the U.S. Agency for International Development. Over the years his work took him to more than 25 countries including China, India, Tanzania and Papua New Guinea.
In Summerside he put his knowledge of sustainable development to use as a volunteer board member with the Bedeque Bay Environmental Management Association, a non-profit group that focuses on local ecosystem issues. He helped with the establishment of the Prince Edward Island Potato Museum at O'Leary and worked on setting up a local library in a former train station. He also laid out a heritage tree walking tour that highlighted species imported from Europe by pioneers or from points abroad by early seafarers. That project won him the nickname Tree Man of Summerside.
In recent years, he began writing poetry, with environmental issues as one of his most common themes. He continued to keep up with developments in science until he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.
Orville Thomas PAGE was born in Burlington, Ontario, on February 13, 1921. He died of pulmonary arrest on August 4, 2007, in Summerside. He was 86. His wife, Norma Isobel (née Ellis), died in 2006. He leaves his daughter, Karen Marantz, his son, William PAGE, and his sister, Grace Bridle.
