In loving memory of Paul B. BUTLER, who passed away on January 5, Beautiful memories are wonderful things
They last till the longest day
They never wear out
They never get lost
And they can never be given away.
To some, you may be forgotten
To others a part of the past
But to those of us who loved and lost you
Your memory will always last.

BUTT, Bruce
In loving memory of our beloved Husband, Dad and Poppa, Bruce BUTT, who passed away on January 5th, 2004. God saw you getting tired When a cure was not to be. So He closed His arms around you And whispered "Come to Me". A golden heart stopped beating, Your gentle hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best. In tears we saw you sinking, We watched you fade away. Our hearts were truly broken, You fought so hard to stay. But when we saw you sleeping, Peacefully and free from pain, We could not wish you back, To suffer that again. So keep your arms around him, Lord, And give him special care, Make up for all he suffered, That seemed to us unfair. So many times we've needed you, So many times we've cried. If love could have saved you, You never would have died. Dearly loved and forever in our hearts, wife Jean, children Pauline and Darrell, Steven and Colleen, grandchildren Jessica, Ryan, Julia.

BUTTEDAHL, Doctor Paz
Dr. Paz BUTTEDAHL, 65, passed away peacefully on October 8, 2007. She is predeceased by her loving husband of 25 years, Doctor Knute BUTTEDAHL. She is survived by her husband, John K. PARK, daughter Maria Beck BUTTEDAHL (Bob BECK), son John BUTTEDAHL (Lisa FERRARI), brother Valerio GOYCOOLEA (Rebecca PALMA,) and sisters Sofia GOYCOOLEA (Richard E. LANE) and Loreto GOYCOOLEA. Paz was a proud aunt of Claudia GOYCOOLEA (Mauricio MEYER,) Alexandre COULON (Maureen COULON- MENASHE,) Oliver GOYCOOLEA and great-aunt to Nicholas MEYER. She was a loving step-mother to Kim and Gary BUTTEDAHL and proud grandmother to Caleb and Alisha GRUNERT. Her family wishes to join in expressing all their love and appreciation for the extraordinary person Paz was, and for the outstanding contributions she made to the world. Paz was born in Santiago, Chile, and created a vast network of Friends, colleagues and students throughout the world, garnered through a long and distinguished career. The breadth of her experience spanned work with universities, international development organizations and agencies, and the Canadian military. Whatever the setting, common threads ran through all of her work: a passion for fostering international and intercultural understanding; a focus on sustainable development; and a belief in the possibility of creating an equitable and socially just world. The academic portion of Paz's career involved teaching at several universities in Canada, the United States, and Latin America, including a faculty position at the University of British Columbia and most recently, at Royal Roads University. Her work at the universities was always characterized by a passionate commitment to her students, the injection of an international perspective and comparative education approach to her courses, and a desire to create international partnerships linking students and educators from the developing world with those in Canada. Paz was sought after as a researcher and educator specializing in international development issues, and was a consultant with many international agencies and organizations. These included the Canadian International Development Agency, The United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization, the U.S. Agency for International Development, and the Organization of American States. Paz also worked for almost a decade with the International Development Research Centre in Ottawa. As Deputy Director of the Fellowships and Awards Division, her focus was on the development of human resources and the strengthening of institutions in the developing world through the education and training of their researchers and project staff. Paz strongly believed in learning as a crucial component in the achievement of sustainable development. In the early 1990s, as international development issues became more and more intertwined with issues of security, Paz was invited to attend the National Defense College in Kingston, Ontario, where she also contributed as the academic advisor to the Commandant. A subsequent posting to the Centre for National Security Studies provided a base for her research linking issues of sustainable development to those of human security. Paz's vast storehouse of knowledge and experience found a home and became invested in the creation of the Master of Arts in Human Security and Peacebuilding program at Royal Roads University in Victoria, British Columbia. As founder and program head, Paz worked tirelessly to build the program and to ensure its sustainability and its relevance to the international development and security issues of today's world. The Master of Arts in Human Security and Peacebuilding program was to be Paz's final contribution in a lifetime of notable achievements. In spite of failing health during the past months, she found strength in providing ongoing leadership to the program and in planning for its future. Paz, with her indomitable spirit and her vision of a world that might be, has enriched and influenced the lives of hundreds of Friends and colleagues around the world. Her loss will be deeply mourned. A celebration of her life will be held on at 1 p.m. on October 21 at Royal Roads University, 2nd Floor Grant Building, 2005 Sooke Rd. Victoria, British Columbia.

BUTTERFIELD, Frank James " Jim"
Husband, father, pioneer of personal computing. Born February 14, 1936, in Ponoka, Alberta. Died June 29 of lymphoma in Toronto, aged 71.
By Diane McKELVEY, Page L6
Jim BUTTERFIELD was the third of four children born to James and Nancy BUTTERFIELD; they were originally from England, but moved to Alberta to try farming there.
Jim attended the University of Alberta and the University of British Columbia, but he soon realized he was more interested in the Radio Society than in the curriculum. He never finished his degree.
In 1957, Jim accepted a job in Whitehorse training technicians who maintained the new microwave system built along the Alaska Highway. From the first, he demonstrated a gift for teaching.
Jim was transferred to Toronto in 1962. Soon he had moved out of the world of microwaves and transistors and, in 1963, began work on the very large computers that were just coming into use.
Jim had also begun a second career as a writer and educator on computers. He was intrigued with the microcomputers that started to arrive in 1976 and was soon publishing programs for games and utilities for a number of models. He became a regular contributor to computer magazines and published several successful books
He left his day job in 1981: rumour has it he was fired after telling his boss that personal computers would one day wipe out the private wire teleprinter business. Before leaving, however, he made one important connection - his wife, Vicki.
Jim's first interest was in Vicki's typewriter: It was top of the line and could type the symbols used for electrical terms such as the ohm. When Vicki asked what the heck that thing was anyhow, Jim came back with a hand-drawn picture of an ohm sitting on top of a stove, which he said was "an ohm on the range." How could she resist?
Jim's life took a significant turn in 1988, when his daughter Susannah was born. Embracing fatherhood at age 52, he immensely enjoyed sharing his love of books, restaurants and travel with his young daughter.
Never stodgy, Jim enjoyed many a beer with Friends at the Toronto Naval Club. He had a sense of humour - one neighbour remembers a telephone conversation in which both Jim and she remarked on how the meow of a Siamese cat had a similar sound to a bagpipe. During the course of the conversation, this eventually led to each holding their Siamese cat under their arms like a proper bagpipe and gently squeezing to produce the requisite wailed duet.
Jim was a dreamer and an entertainer, and nothing made him happier than to share his knowledge and enthusiasm with an audience - whether it was a group of machine language programmers or a curious child.
Diane McKELVEY is Jim's niece.
