CHIARANDINI, Albert, O. S. A., F. I. A. L.
It is with sadness that Rudy CHIARANDINI and Joan TADIER and their families announce the passing of their father Albert on December 18th, 2007 in his 93rd year. With comfort they reflect on his accomplishments, as a wonderful husband to his late wife Mary (née MAYO,) son, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. His dedication to the arts was his life. He instructed at the Ontario College of Art, Northern Secondary, Holy Blossom Temple and the Guild of Portrait Painters. Was proud to be a member of the Ontario Society of Artists.
His contemporaries recall his familiar saying "It is only paint, my friend!" With this paint he created masterpieces capturing the beauty of the Canadian and Italian landscapes and portraits of many faces.
His pleasures were the love of classical music, nature, a good red wine and polenta!!!!
Family and Friends may visit at Ward Funeral Home, 4671 Highway 7, Woodbridge, Ontario 905-851-9100. Visitation Thursday, December 20th, 2-4 p.m. and 6-9 p.m. Service held in the Ward Funeral Home Chapel on Friday, December 21st, 2007 at 11 o'clock. Interment to follow at Holy Cross Cemetery.
If desired, a donation in Albert's honour in support of the arts, to the Georgina Arts Centre and Gallery, 149 High Street, Sutton West, Ontario L0E 1R0 905-722-9587 where many of Albert's finest works are a permanent collection would greatly be appreciated.

Charmion KING, Actress: (1925-2007)
The grande dame of Canadian theatre was known for her dynamic stage presence, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S9
In a career that spanned 60 years on stage, radio, television and film, Charmion KING was known for her dynamic stage presence, her throaty laugh, her beauty, her dedication to the theatre, and her professionalism. Of all playwrights she loved Chekhov the best and no wonder, for she delivered many of her best performances in his work.
"She was the grande dame of Canadian Theatre," Albert SCHULTZ, artistic director of The Soulpepper Theatre in Toronto, said yesterday. Ms. KING joined the company in its third season (2000) to play a character in Noël Coward's Present Laughter. "We needed one of those great dames who could come on stage and convince you that she could function under a couple of martinis and be as witty as the next person in the room and bring with her a great aristocratic bearing and great wit and elegance -- and that was Charm," he said.
The only child of Charles KING, a businessman who worked for Neilsen's (and was called The Candy Man, according to his granddaughter Leah) and his wife Amabel (née REEVES,) Charmion KING spent her earliest years in The Beach area of Toronto in a house fronting the boardwalk. Even as a five-year-old, she dreamed of becoming an actress. After the family moved to Forest Hill, she attended Bishop Strachan, the private girls' school, where she often played male roles in plays. In the summers she went to Tanamakoon, the girls' camp where the late Dora Mavor Moore had begun teaching musical theatre in the 1930s.
She enrolled in University College at the University of Toronto in the early 1940s, where she acted in college productions. In 1944, The Globe and Mail reported that she had been offered a screen test by Warner Brothers after talent scouts for the film studio had seen her perform in Thunder Rock. The 19-year-old star of the University College Players' Guild had declined, saying "this is just a school play."
Her best work was probably done at the Hart House Theatre under the direction of Robert GILL, an American actor who had worked at the Cleveland Playhouse. At the time, only men were allowed to use Hart House, the recreational and athletic facility that had been given to the university by the Massey family, but the theatre was run by a different administration, one that welcomed women on its stage after the war.
Mr. GILL, who headed Hart House Productions, was an "enormous influence," Ms. KING told Susan LAWRENCE in 2002 for an article in the University of Toronto magazine. "He taught me professional behaviour as an actress." In her most memorable role at university, she played the title role in Saint Joan at Hart House Theatre in 1947, the year she graduated. "Her performance of Joan," The Globe and Mail critic wrote the following morning, according to Hart House records, "is a luminous portrayal, instinct with an inner fire of truth and spiritual beauty, and exquisite in its shadings of emotion and execution."
From Hart House and a year of graduate work in English literature, she did summer stock in New York, and then helped found the Straw Hat Players in 1948 with Murray and Donald DAVIS, two brothers who had been part of the Hart House theatre gang. The company, which included Eric HOUSE, Ted FOLLOWS and Barbara HAMILTON, toured Muskoka and Port Carling and the border region of the U.S. for several summers. "In a way it was the best time I ever had on the stage," Ms. KING told The Globe in 1961. "We were 10 ambitious, idealistic youngsters who thought we were building Canadian theatre and, perhaps, we were."
The DAVIS brothers and their sister Barbara CHILCOTT went on to open The Crest Theatre in a renovated cinema on Mount Pleasant Road in Toronto in 1954. At The Crest she played Masha (with Kate Reid) in Chekhov's The Three Sisters, Madame Ranevskaya in The Cherry Orchard and Lady Utterword in Heartbreak House, among other roles in that theatre's ambitious and groundbreaking history.
She worked in England in the very early 1950s but returned to Canada to work in television on the fledgling Canadian Broadcasting Corporation network and at the equally neophyte Stratford Festival, appearing as Hermione in The Winter's Tale and Lady Percy in Henry IV, Part 1 in 1958. (She returned to the Festival in 1982 as a senior member of the Shakespeare 3 company and acted in All's Well That Ends Well and A Midsummer Night's Dream.)
The following year she performed on Broadway in Robertson Davies's Love and Libel, directed by Tyrone Guthrie, and toured in a principal role in Love and Libel in Detroit, Boston and New York.
In 1962, she went back to The Crest to play opposite a Newfoundland actor named Gordon PINSENT in The Madwoman of Chaillot. They married on November 2 of that year, a creative and romantic partnership that lasted more than 44 years. After her wedding, Ms. KING told The Toronto Star that she "was doing Orpheus Descending at the Crest and when it ended I said I didn't want to work for a long, long time. I was tired." Their daughter, actress Leah PINSENT, was born on September 20, 1968. The family moved to Los Angeles in the 1970s where Mr. PINSENT (after the end of the television show Quentin Durgens, M.P., in which he had starred) was writing and finding backers for his film The Rowdyman.
"She was my best friend," Leah PINSENT said yesterday about her mother. "Other than when I had to go away, we talked every day. She was giving and kind and warm and funny and smart and a great cook."
After having retired for most of a decade to spend more time as a wife and mother, Ms. KING ended her self-imposed retreat by appearing in the Ethel Barrymore role in The Royal Family, a comedy by George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber, at the Shaw Festival in 1972.
She performed steadily after that on television and radio (playing Aunt Josephine on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation-television's Anne of Green Gables and appearing on The Newsroom, Twitch City and Wind at My Back, and playing the voice of Mrs. Gruenwald in the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio series Rumours and Boarders). She appeared in film (Who Has Seen the Wind? and Nobody Waved Goodbye) and on stage, notably as Jessica Logan, a temperamental actress trying to make a comeback, in the premiere production of David French's showbusiness comedy Jitters in Toronto and at the Long Wharf Theatre in New Haven in 1979, a role that she revived in Toronto in 1986.
In 1990, she again performed opposite Kate Reid in a Hart House revival of Arsenic and Old Lace. In 1998 she starred in the Tarragon Theatre production of Janet Munsil's Emphysema (A Love Story) in which she shared the stage with her daughter Leah, as they both played actress Louise Brooks at different ages. Although Ms. KING had been a heavy smoker, she had successfully stopped for a decade until the director asked them to smoke "real" cigarettes on stage, according to her daughter. Alas, she was hooked again.
Ms. PINSENT said it was "fabulous" working with her mother because she was "always a very generous woman. There was no ego; she always wanted to serve the writer and the theatre in the best way she possibly could."
In the last several years Ms. KING performed regularly at The Soulpepper Theatre in Toronto, appearing in Present Laughter in 2001, as Maria in Chekhov's Uncle Vanya and in Jean Genet's The Maids in 2002. "We called her at home and we got her," Mr. SCHULTZ said about casting her for the first time. "She always brought such humanity and elegance and wit to everything she did. She was a pleasure to have around."
Asked a few years ago by an interviewer whether she could imagine retiring, Ms. KING said absolutely not. "Being an actor is something like being at university. It opens your mind and your soul and makes you tap into yourself." Her last role was as Mrs. Soames in Thornton Wilder's Our Town at Soulpepper in 2006 and she was planning to reprise the role this spring.
"To the very end, Charm stood up for the creative arts in Canada," her family said in a statement this week. She was a steadfast believer in the creative spirit of this country, its culture&hellip her cry was always… get on with it and be proud."
Charmion KING was born in Toronto on July 25, 1925. She died in Toronto of complications from emphysema on Saturday. She was 81. She is survived by her husband Gordon PINSENT, her daughter Leah PINSENT and her son-in-law Peter KELEGHAN. There will be a private family cremation, followed by a memorial service at a later date.

Two die in head-on crash
One man was returning from a wedding, the other was a dad killed on Father's Day.
By Jonathan SHER, Sun Media, Mon., June 18, 2007
The Father's Day weekend turned tragic for two families when what began as a simple traffic manoeuvre near Stratford ended with two men dead and a 11-year-old girl in critical condition.
Dusk had fallen Saturday when two vehicles crashed head-on along Highway 7 eight kilometres east of Shakespeare.
The driver of a westbound car, Jeremy CRINKLAW, 30, of Stratford, had been returning home after celebrating his sister's wedding.
He edged his car into the eastbound lane as if to get a view before passing another vehicle, witnesses: told police.
Instead, he collided head-on with an eastbound car.
The crash killed CRINKLAW and the driver of the eastbound car, Douglas STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, 50, of Oakville, who'd been sitting next to his 11-year-old daughter, Emily.
"It's very tragic," Perth Ontario Provincial Police Const. Glen CHILDERLEY said yesterday.
The girl suffered "life-threatening injuries" and was taken to MacMaster Hospital in Hamilton, he said.
The crash closed traffic for several hours and Ontario Provincial Police investigators were trying yesterday to confirm what had happened.

Crash victim a 'lovely' person
By Sun Media Staff, Fri., September 7, 2007
A 20-year-old woman who died in a crash near Tavistock was remembered yesterday as a devoted mother and volunteer.
Jessica JOCQUE died Wednesday while driving her 16-month-old son Nathan from Shakespeare to the boy's father's home in Tavistock, Perth County Ontario Provincial Police said. "She was a lovely girl," said Denise KANE, secretary at Sprucedale public school in Shakespeare. Rescue workers were shaken by the horrific crash that left the baby motherless, said Ontario Provincial Police Const. Glen CHILDERLEY. " There is no easy way to deal with something like that," he said. JOCQUE's son was taken to hospital in Stratford and kept for observation, CHILDERLEY said. The crash happened on Perth Road 107, about 11: 45 a.m. Wednesday. JOCQUE's car crossed the centre line and crashed into an oncoming car. Police were still investigating.

EARL, Christopher Edward
Family man, actor, motivator, sales and business coach. Born November 11, 1968, in Montreal. Died January 28 in Toronto, of cancer, aged 38.
By Debbie EARL, Page L8
Born to Ted and Mary EARL, Chris was the youngest of six siblings, guaranteeing a childhood full of family adventures. He learned early to stand up for himself or he would become the victim of pranks, such as attempts to persuade him to get into the clothes dryer - during the spin cycle.
As a teenager, he had the gift of the gab, captaining his school's debating team. At 17, he recruited and managed a window-washing crew, which earned Chris his university tuition.
At Queen's University, Chris acted in a Greek play as Dionysus. The seed of an idea to become a professional actor was planted. When a Kingston radio station held a "crazy people tricks" contest, Chris and a close friend won. They dressed as female synchronized swimmers and did a routine in a wooden vat of "guacamole" (oatmeal and green paint).
Chris studied acting at Ryerson Theatre School in Toronto. Through mutual Friends he met Amarjit CHIMA. On a trip to Memphis, Amarjit drew a picture of Elvis on his back by connecting the dots of his moles. Chris knew this talented, funny woman was the one. In 1994, they took a road trip across Canada. They were married on a mountain in Banff, and became great life partners because each had a sense of fun and a drive to achieve.
Chris played many roles, but the dream of making a living as an actor paled next to the dream of having children. Chris went into business as a trainer in sales techniques and motivational skills. Chris and Amarjit had two children: Ismay, a daughter, in 1998 and Eamon, a son, in 2001. Chris felt blessed - his family was complete.
In January 2006, Chris was diagnosed with terminal melanoma. He continued to live at home where he and Amarjit could parent their children.
To help encourage Chris, the Earl and Chima families created a team for the Canadian Cancer Society's Relay for Life. Chris practised walking around his neighbourhood, determined to do the Survivors' Lap.
Chris's Crew won the award for the most money raised by an individual team. Chris did his victory lap around the track, walking with a sister-in-law who had survived breast cancer. One of Chris's favourite lines throughout his illness was "It is what it is!" reminding us to face our challenges with courage and determination.
Chris died at home, surrounded by family. At the end of the funeral, the "crazy people tricks" video was shown to great hilarity. In the midst of sorrow, we celebrated Chris's spirit, optimism and wit.
Debbie EARL is Chris's oldest sister.

HALE, George Morris (1922-2007)
On November 17, 2007, George Morris HALE accepted the starter's call for his divine tee time at 10: 30 a.m. George spent his final days at Kingston General Hospital, within the confines of his beloved alma mater, Queen's University, singing with his loved ones. George's passion for his Welsh heritage was unrivalled even though he came to Canada four years after his birth in Cwmtillery on December 23, 1922. He held St. David's Day celebrations the world over, awarded the Welsh Cup in family competitions (the highest honour attainable) and had a zeal for music - so much so that George's religious affiliation was determined by the quality of the choir. Queen's University offered George more than a diploma (Science '45, Masters '47): he met his true love Mary Lillian CONNER (Arts '45 - one of the famed Goodwin House Girls), forged essential life-long Friendships and instilled in his children the value of a university experience. While 'The Graduate' may have suggested it, George lived the future - an official Canadian Plastics Pioneer. His career course began in Shawinigan Falls and continued to North York, Brampton, Pointe Claire and culminated with the prestigious position as President, China Gulf Plastics Corp. in Taipei, Taiwan. His success afforded George and Mary, often accompanied by good Friends, the opportunity to travel the globe and experience its pleasures. Retiring from the plastics industry in 1976, George resettled the family in St. Catharines where he opened the Marco Polo Shop - keeping Mary and him occupied between golf and bridge games. His final years were spent in Kingston, enjoying the love and companionship of Ruth CHISAMORE, together wreaking havoc at the Kingsdale bridge tables. Predeceased by his wife Mary, granddaughter Michelle, sister Lilian and brother Cyril. Survived by his sister Kitty (Kathleen) and recognized progeny Richard (Skip), Susan (Doug ROUTLEDGE,) Jeff (Ted COOPER,) David (France) and Alison (spinster librarian); grandchildren Michael (Julie), Taben, Devin, Sarah (Dave LANOVAZ), Julie (Nathan LAX), Jordan, John Lee COOPER, Mathieu BOURBONNAIS; great-grand_son Liam LANOVAZ and his dearest companion Ruth CHISAMORE. A celebration of George's life will be held at the Country Squire Inn in Gananoque on November 24, at 7: 00 p.m. For accommodations in the Hale block, call 613-382-3511. Although we are requesting casual attire, George would have preferred 'clothing optional.' Please share your memories with us at www.jamesreidfuneralhome.com. In recognition of his life-long passion for music, in lieu of flowers, please offer a donation to a musical organization of your choice.

Headstrong Chief Executive Officer saved Churchill Falls and rescued the Bank of Montreal
An emergency boss who took over after a plane crash wiped out everyone else, he brought the power project in on time before moving to a troubled Bank of Montreal, where he ruthlessly cleaned house
By Gordon PITTS, Page S8
Besides banking and family, William MULHOLLAND's grand passion was raising Hanoverian riding horses, which, according to one of his nine children, are "headstrong, able and smart." Those adjectives can just as easily be applied to her demanding father, said Caroline VAN NOSTRAND.
Those traits helped propel Mr. MULHOLLAND, a U.S.-born outsider, into one of Canada's most exciting and controversial management careers. He was the emergency boss who came in to save the massive Churchill Falls power project in Labrador. Then he turned around the Bank of Montreal, Canada's oldest bank, and as a financial-services innovator helped change the country's banking industry.
As an agent of change at the lacklustre Bank of Montreal, he fired executives who didn't measure up, winning a reputation as a tough, uncompromising boss. He tightened credit policies, led technological innovation and bought a Chicago bank in a far-sighted move that anticipated a North American market. He helped lead the Canadian commercial banks' march into investment banking with the purchase of brokerage Nesbitt Thomson.
Like many turnaround managers, he was accused of staying too long as Chief Executive Officer and losing touch with a rapidly evolving industry. Yet he reached down into the ranks to develop a new generation of Bank of Montreal leaders that included future Chief Executive Officers Matthew Barrett and Anthony Comper.
He was a complicated man who was seen as remote, autocratic, introverted and eccentric, but he was regarded as brilliant for some of his strategic moves. He could become deeply absorbed in detail and alarmingly inattentive to people's feelings. In describing him, Friends often fall back on that old cliché: "He did not suffer fools gladly."
"My father was not always easy," said Ms. VAN NOSTRAND, who lives in Toronto. "He had exacting standards and he upheld them for himself and expected others to do their best to get that same quality.
"But you can't mistake that for a lack of true caring and love and a huge commitment to family."
Still, for all his high standards and strategic thinking, Mr. MULHOLLAND's own career was almost haphazard, the product of tragic circumstances, timing and managerial agility.
He was born in Albany, New York the son of a civil servant who became New York's director of parks. Even at birth, he had a Canadian connection - his maternal great-grandmother was a French-Canadian from Trois-Rivières. He attended Christian Brothers Academy, a Catholic military school in Albany, where he became an expert rider, marksman, and fly fisherman -- interests he pursued throughout his life.
He graduated from high school, joined the U.S. Army during the Second World War and trained as a weapons instructor before being posted to the Philippines. After discharge, he entered Harvard College, got his B.A., then earned an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School, while working in the summers as a park ranger.
He then parlayed a social connection with the financier Morgan family to join the investment banking house Morgan Stanley and pursue a career on Wall Street.
He married the daughter of a family friend, Nancy BOOTH, on June 22, 1957. Their rearing of nine children (four daughters and five sons) has been attributed by his wife to the consequences of a union between an Irish Catholic and a Free Methodist.
Mr. MULHOLLAND thrived in investment banking. One of his clients was Brinco, a Montreal firm of British-Canadian origins that was building the $1-billion Churchill Falls hydro project. He placed a $500-million bond issue for the company - at that time, a record sale of securities by a corporation.
But on November 11, 1969, Brinco's executive jet crashed, killing six members of its senior team, including the president and finance vice-president. The company was leaderless at a critical juncture in the Churchill Falls project. Mr. MULHOLLAND "was the last man standing who knew what it was all about," said Richard O'HAGAN, who was later his public-affairs specialist at Bank of Montreal.
In January, 1970, at the age of 43, he moved to Montreal to become Brinco's president and Chief Executive Officer. He also joined the board of the Bank of Montreal, which was the principal commercial banker for the Churchill Falls project. He brought the project in five months ahead of schedule and under budget.
Ron SOUTHERN, the Calgary-based head of Atco Ltd., was supplying Brinco with housing for its Churchill Falls work force. He was also negotiating to build housing factories in the Soviet Union and invited Soviet president Alexsei Kosygin to tour his facilities in Montreal. Mr. MULHOLLAND agreed to provide testimonials for the Atco products, and impressed Mr. SOUTHERN with his ability to hold his own in intense geopolitical discussions.
It was the beginning of a Friendship that was cemented in the mid-1970s, when Mr. SOUTHERN opened his Spruce Meadows equestrian centre near Calgary. Mr. MULHOLLAND attended the first major equestrian event, impressing Mr. SOUTHERN with his own riding skills. Each year, he would take a long country ride on the morning of the big event.
With Churchill Falls complete, Mr. MULHOLLAND was recruited to become the Bank of Montreal's president in 1975. He found another organization in crisis mode. "It took him about a year to get a grip on the bank, but he was a bulldog and he got it done," Mr. SOUTHERN said.
The new banker became immersed in Bank of Montreal's liquidity problems and cost-control challenges, as well as its struggles to move from manual systems to the computer age. After the incumbent Chief Executive Officer retired, he took the top job in January, 1979, adding the chairman's role 2½ years later.
He was involved in hiring Mr. O'HAGAN, who had served in the Prime Minister's Office under another eccentric legend, Pierre Trudeau. Mr. O'HAGAN recalled how his job interview with Mr. MULHOLLAND stretched to more than two hours, until he finally telephoned his next interview party to beg forbearance. Mr. O'HAGAN was fascinated by this brilliant, obsessive man and joined the Bank of Montreal team.
That extended interview was a harbinger of the MULHOLLAND style. He was notorious for unpredictably long meetings, forcing managers to queue up for hours, awaiting audiences that lasted long into the evening.
He was determined to weed out the perceived dead wood that had allowed the bank's problems to build. In his zeal to cleanse the ranks, he was accused of creating a demographic crisis in the bank. One unidentified manager told Report on Business magazine in 1989 that "an entire generation of management has been cremated."
"Those judgments were not made whimsically - they were made on the basis of performance," insisted Grant REUBER, the bank's president during the MULHOLLAND era. "I don't think he relished letting people go, but if they hadn't measured up and they hadn't recovered, they probably didn't survive."
Jeff CHISHOLM, a retired Bank of Montreal executive, said he never saw this side of his former boss - Mr. MULHOLLAND simply demanded honest answers from his managers. He said his positive traits never came to light because the Chief Executive Officer did not really care what critics thought of him.
Mr. MULHOLLAND also pulled off a deal that transformed the bank: the 1984 purchase of Harris Bank, a U.S. Midwest regional powerhouse based in Chicago. Some critics have contended that once the deal was done, the bank didn't really capitalize on its new U.S. platform - but at minimum, Mr. MULHOLLAND created the potential platform.
"He had a vision about what was going to happen to the North American economy and to financial services within North America," said Mr. Chisholm, a former Harris Bank executive who joined Bank of Montreal.
Later, Mr. MULHOLLAND moved quickly on the deregulation of Canada's financial industry by acquiring Nesbitt Thomson, the foundation of today's Bank of Montreal Nesbitt Burns Inc., the bank's investment subsidiary.
Whether he stayed too long is much debated; it's a common problem with strong leaders in politics and business. But Mr. MULHOLLAND's saving grace was to leave the bank in good hands.
Mr. Barrett, his successor, was a charming people person who provided a sharp contrast with his more aloof predecessor. Mr. MULHOLLAND "knew he was not Mr. Popularity with everybody," Mr. O'HAGAN said. "He recognized there would be a contrast and that Barrett's personal style would register differently. I think that was part of the reason he chose him."
Mr. Barrett, now retired from banking, said in an e-mail message that "Bank of Montreal shareholders and employees owe a debt of gratitude to Bill for stepping into the bank at a difficult time in its history. Those that succeeded him benefited greatly from his legacy.
"He once joked that he built the Stradivarius that others played beautifully. I certainly agree with that."
After he retired in 1990, Mr. MULHOLLAND had time to focus on family, horses and his beloved Windswept Farm near Georgetown, west of Toronto. He worked to develop the Hanoverian breed in Canada.
But in recent years, Parkinson's disease took its toll. At the MULHOLLANDs' 50th wedding anniversary party in early July, Friends felt he almost willed himself to attend. It wasn't long afterward that he was admitted to hospital.
William MULHOLLAND was born in Albany, New York on June 16, 1926. He died of complications from Parkinson's disease and other medical problems at his home near Georgetown, Ontario, on September 8, 2007. He was 81. He is survived by his wife Nancy, nine children and 11 grandchildren.

MacADAM, Hugh Gerald
Husband, father, lawyer, Cape Bretoner, decorated solder. Born February 3, 1922, in Margaree Harbour, Nova Scotia Died August 2 in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, of heart failure, aged 85.
By Margaret MacADAM, Page L12
In the last years of his life, Gerald MacADAM puzzled about the meaning of his existence and the ways in which luck and opportunity shaped his life.
Born in 1922, the 12th (and youngest child) of Colin Francis and Annie (CHISHOLM) MacADAM, Gerald spent his childhood in the town of Margaree Harbour in Cape Breton.
In his life, there was his education (and high jinks) at St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, and yet he graduated summa cum laude; fighting (and high jinks) in Europe during the Second World War as a lieutenant in the army; law school (and high jinks) at Dalhousie University.
Gerald was also with the legal department at Algoma Steel Inc., and did years of volunteer work for organizations in Sault Ste. Marie. He was married to Amelda MacKINNON for 52 years and was a devoted father to his son, Donald.
Gerald was first and foremost a Cape Bretoner. To him that meant a man fortunate to have been born on the Island and not on the mainland (the disparaging term for the rest of Nova Scotia).
Second, Gerald was a scholar in the tradition of many of his highland forebears. For him, the centre of his home was his library he read extensively about history, politics, philosophy and religion.
He loved nothing better than having a "discussion" with a visitor about his experiences at university, in the army, working with Sir James Dunn at Algoma Steel Inc., or his volunteer work with the Grey Sisters.
Over a glass of scotch, the visitor would be regaled with funny stories.
One of his best was about trying to move an unauthorized horse during a military convoy, having the horse trailer break down on a bridge, which held up the entire operation, being berated by the commanding officer, and giving his name as Donald MacDonald, knowing that there were so many Donald MacDonalds in the army that no one would be held responsible.
Perhaps inevitably, Gerald was a seeker. He marvelled that he survived a war when so many didn't and he struggled with the difficulties that shape all our lives. He had an inquiring mind and sought meaning in Buddhism.
It was his wish that his friend, Rev. Francis Reid, who had been an altar boy at his wedding, officiate at his funeral. Those who knew him understood that his journey was well done.
