"ELI" 2007 Obituary


ELIA 2007-01-05 published
In loving memory of Adam, who passed away 2 years ago, on January 5, 2005. We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name, In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone, For part of us went with you, the day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, your love is still your guide, And though we cannot see you, you are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same, But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again. Always remembered by Nonno Franco and Nonna Rita DEMARCO, Carlo and Lisa DEMARCO and family, Joe and Rose ELIA and family.

'Profound sadness' at GREENBERG's death
Memorial Sunday for former professor, local lecturer
By Denis LANGLOIS, Thursday, May 31, 2007
Well-known architecture expert, lecturer and retired university professor Bob GREENBERG has died from cancer.
People close to GREENBERG say he was a great teacher and a man who cared deeply about architectural preservation and an increased appreciation of architecture.
"We've lost a very rare and unique person," local heritage advocate John HARRISON said in an interview Wednesday.
GREENBERG, who was born in Bronx, New York in 1942, died Monday.
He was instrumental in establishing a degree architecture program at Ryerson University in 1972 and retired from the university in 1999 after a 28-year career. He and his wife Georgina bought a house near Dobbinton in 1992.
GREENBERG has a long list of accomplishments in Grey-Bruce and worked for many years on architectural heritage in the area. He also worked on projects at both Grey Roots and the Bruce County museum and was a founding Bluewater Association of Lifelong Learning lecturer.
He was vocal during the debate over the demolition of the historic Queen's Hotel in Owen Sound.
HARRISON said GREENBERG aroused an interest in people in historical architecture.
"He was a renaissance man in the truest case," he added. "He was a tremendous teacher of architecture."
GREENBERG is survived by five children - Noah, 34, Zoe, 31, Naomi, 22, Paula, 19, and Eli, 15.
Noah GREENBERG, an architect in Seattle, Washington., said Wednesday his father saw the "big picture" and a need to spread an understanding of the importance of architecture.
He said his father's home is filled with architectural drawings, sketch books, scrolls and educational books - enough to fill a library.
Noah said his father was "very close and patient" as a parent..
Georgina recalled her husband had a minor roll in the development of the World Trade Center in New York City, as a junior draftsman creating flow charts on pedestrian traffic. He was designed the award-winning St. Elias Ukranian Catholic Church in Brampton, Ontario, where a celebration of his life will be held this summer.
She said the local heritage work her husband was involved with became like a second career after retirement. He sort of "fell into it" after being approached by people in the community.
Ed WOJS, a Ryerson University professor who was taught by GREENBERG, said he has been receiving e-mails since GREENBERG's death from around the world from his former students.
"There's a profound sadness," he said. "He is the father of our program here at Ryerson."
GREENBERG served as an architecture heritage advisor in both Owen Sound and Collingwood. He worked on the city's facade program, was a consultant on heritage issues and involved in Doors Open and the city's historic walking tour.
"He had a wealth of knowledge and an ability to teach and impart that knowledge to all of us," Owen Sound Mayor Ruth LOVELL said.
GREENBERG advised on such local projects as the Intrawest development at Blue Mountain, the Loblaw's grocery store in Collingwood, the planned expansion of the Owen Sound Farmer's Market and early talks to move and restore a 19th century Mennonite church west of Rockford.
GREENBERG spent more than 600 hours designing and building a scale model of Grey Roots' Moreston village.
Grey Roots' manager Brian MANSER said GREENBERG, who sat on the museum's fundraising committee and lectured there, had a great interest in Grey County architecture and saving historic buildings and 'gave himself completely" to projects.
"It's tough moving forward without him."
GREENBERG also helped design "L'Chaim, the story of the Beth Ezekiel Synagogue," exhibit at Grey Roots.
"The exhibit is a success because of his efforts," synagogue president Jeff ELIE said, adding GREENBERG's knowledge of Judaism, sensitivity and insight proved invaluable.
ELIE said GREENBERG was Jewish by birth, but was not a member of the synagogue although he cared deeply about it. When the building was in danger of collapse, GREENBERG offered his architectural services free of charge.
The Beth Ezekiel Synagogue will hold a memorial service for GREENBERG on Sunday starting at 4: 30 p.m.
