Gerry LEAVER, 89: Engineer
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S8
Ottawa -- Gerry LEAVER was so traumatized by what he went through as a gunner during the Second World War that he seriously considered becoming a Roman Catholic priest when he was demobilized at the end of 1945.
Serving in Italy and Northwest Europe as a battery captain with 1st Canadian Survey Regiment, he was present at all its battles, both large and small. Spending more than a year in action, including leave and rest periods, he saw the full horror of warfare up close. A reserved man who almost never spoke of his experiences, he was appalled at the tremendous waste and never forgot the suffering he witnessed.
After slogging up the Italian peninsula in a series of hard-fought battles in 1944, he and his regiment arrived in the Netherlands in February, 1945, for almost three more months of fighting before Germany surrendered on May 7, 1945.
Although Mr. LEAVER quickly dropped his plan of studying for the priesthood - he went back to Queen's University in Kingston, finished a degree and got on with his life by building a career and a family - his memories of war profoundly affected his life for the next 60 years, his daughter Maureen LEAVER said. "He suffered for his entire life from post traumatic stress syndrome, but he suppressed it until the last years of his life, until the demons became too strong."
Those demons appeared during the summer of 2004, when he started suffering nightmares. They upset him greatly, so he asked his caregiver, Carol GOLDENBERG, if she would write them down in diary form. The result is a valuable record of war-time experience.
The entries, which began on January 4, 2005, describe various incidents that took place during his life, both military and civilian, from the routine to the dangerous. A week later, he dreamed about charging up a hill during an attack with his batman and personal servant beside him. The batman was seriously wounded and soon died in his arms, he told Ms. GOLDENBERG. " Gerry holds him, but does not know or remember how he was feeling or what happened next," she said.
The torment continued unabated. The emotion, suppressed for decades, was not unique to Mr. LEAVER. Thousands of Canadian servicemen experienced the similar trauma. Some carried on, no matter what, and elected to suffer in silence. For some, the pressure was released through excessive drinking. Others took it out on their families.
Gerry LEAVER grew up in a post-First World War Ottawa of horse-drawn delivery wagons. Considered pretty much a backwater at the time, it was known for lumber, civil servants and the Stanley Cup-winning Ottawa Senators.
Besides delivering the Ottawa Journal, a daily newspaper that folded in 1980 after 95 years, young Gerry spent a lot of time at his father's store in the Byward Market, just down the street from Parliament Hill. After school, he would sweep the floor, stock shelves and do whatever else needed to be done. "He would help out by standing out in front and calling out either 'cold milk' or 'meat' so people would come to LEAVER's store," Ms. GOLDENBERG recorded.
Some days, he and his sister, Betty, would walk to the Carnegie Library and check out books. However, their father disapproved of reading and told them books would "burn your eyes out."
In 1937, Mr. LEAVER matriculated at Queen's University, electing to study civil engineering. Perhaps with an eye to the war clouds then gathering over Europe, he joined the Canadian Officers' Training Corps and gained a commission in the army. Not long after that, on September 10, 1939, Canada declared war on Germany.
Nine months later, on July 5, 1940, Mr. LEAVER volunteered for the Royal Regiment of Canadian Artillery, joining 1st Field Brigade, Royal Canadian Artillery, in Ottawa. His prewar training proved valuable, since the brass gave him the rank of lieutenant, one step up from second lieutenant. He was soon transferred to 1st Canadian Survey Regiment. He shipped out to Britain for more training and landed in Sicily with his unit in July, 1943.
What followed -- particularly after the Italians surrendered that September -- was some of the hardest fighting that Canadian soldiers endured during the war. For his gallantry during an action in February, 1944, he was made a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) for displaying "great devotion to duty at all times… He completely disregarded his own safety and by his skillful handling of the situation, safeguarded that of his men," the official citation said.
By March, 1945, Mr. LEAVER and the rest of 1 Canadian Corps were in France, moving up to the fighting in the Netherlands as the German army fought tenaciously to keep the Allies from crossing the Rhine. On May 6, 1945, Mr. LEAVER's war was over.
There was one more event to come, though. In October, 1946, he was summoned to Ottawa's Rideau Hall to accept his MBE from the governor-general, Lord Alexander.
After graduating in 1947, Mr. LEAVER joined the department of mines, energy and resources two years later. Working in surveying and mapping, he retired in 1977.
Fond of playing tennis, and reading history, politics and current events, Mr. LEAVER devoted his retirement to volunteering. "He helped people all his life," said Ms. LEAVER. "He was a man for all men."
Although he attended few regimental reunions after the war, Mr. LEAVER never missed the annual Remembrance Day parade at Ottawa's National War Memorial.
Gerald Joseph LEAVER was born November 24, 1918, in Ottawa. He died of natural causes in Ottawa on October 22, 2007. He was 89. He is survived by his daughter, Maureen, and by sons Frank and Garrett. He also leaves his sister, Betty, and grand_son Stephan. He was predeceased by his wife, Ruth.

McMORRIS, George Coulson (1926-2007)
Commander, Royal Canadian Navy and Canadian Air Force (ret.)
Peacefully on January 11, 2007 at the Trillium Health Centre in Mississauga, Ontario. He leaves his cherished wife of 56 years, Gene (MacMINN,) his daughters Robyn McMORRIS and Nicola MALONEY (Randy) and grandchildren Candice and Michael with very special memories. Predeceased by his parents George and Margaret McMORRIS and his brother Lawrence (Sam) McMORRIS (Joan,) he is also survived by his sister Beth GOLDSTONE (Bill.) Born in Edmonton, he spent his youth in Saskatoon and Winnipeg before enrolling at Royal Roads Naval College as a cadet in 1943. Upon graduation in 1945 he began a naval career that took him overseas to England and Scotland and from coast to coast in Canada, serving on submarines and destroyers and becoming the first Canadian naval officer to command both a submarine and a destroyer. After his naval career ended, George and his family moved to Toronto where he pursued a variety of careers, retiring in 1991 as the General Manager of the Etobicoke Olympium. In retirement he was able to devote more time to his many passions including woodworking, upholstery and travelling and golfing adventures with Gene. A hole in one at the Humber Valley Golf Course was one of the highlights of George's retirement. Most recently, he experienced great pleasure from becoming a dog owner, as evidenced by the large photographs of 'Cookie' that he circulated widely to family and Friends. The family would like to thank all of George and Gene's family, Friends and colleagues for their love and Friendship during George's lifetime, as well as the staff at King Gardens and Etobicoke General Hospital in his last few months. Particular mention must be made of the very caring nursing staff at Trillium Health Centre in Mississauga, who made his last days very comfortable. Special thanks also go to George and Gene's Friends from Lion's Gate whose support enabled them to remain in their home and independent until the last few months. George felt very blessed to count such caring people among his circle of Friends. A memorial service to celebrate George's life will be held on Wednesday, January 17, 2007 at 3: 00 p.m. at The Simple Alternative Funeral Centre, 1535 South Gateway Road, Mississauga, Ontario, L4W 5J1, 905-602-1580.

Chesley war veteran and voice for farmers dies
By Mary GOLEM, For the Post, Friday, October 26, 2007
A Second World War veteran, a defender of the family farm and strong advocate for Canadian farmers, a former vice-chairman of the National Farm Products Marketing Council, a Rotarian and a dedicated family man - Clarence James (Jim) BOYNTON of R.R.#3 Chesley - passed away at the South Bruce Grey Health Centre in Chesley on Thursday, October 18. He was 88 years of age.
A large crowd attended Mr. BOYNTON's funeral at Saint_John's United Church in Chesley on Monday, during which time Mr. BOYNTON was remembered for his dedication to agriculture, community and family his knowledge and opinions, often expressed in letters to the editor in area newspapers, along with his wit, charm and fun-loving nature.
In the mid-1970s, Mr. BOYNTON accepted an appointment as vice-chairman of the National Farm Products Marketing Council from then agriculture minister, the Hon. Eugene Whelan. In an e-mail read at Monday's service, Whelan paid tribute to Mr. BOYNTON and expressed his sympathy to his wife of over 60 years, Ina; their three children, Donna BOYNTON of New Brunswick, Bob and his wife Ellen of Ottawa and Patricia McCURDY and her husband Frank of Tara. He will be missed by his nine grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
A Second World War armoured corps veteran and active member of Branch #144 of the Royal Canadian Legion in Chesley, Mr. BOYNTON was a tank commander with the Fifth Armoured Regiment and was wounded twice, once in Italy at the Gothic Line and again in the late days of the war in 1945 in Holland.
He married his wife, Ina, just two months before he went overseas for military duty. Mr. BOYNTON carried with him a scrap of shrapnel in his head and wore hearing aids in both ears to help with difficulties brought on by damaging battle explosions.
He served his local Legion Branch in different executive positions, including president and padre.
He began to farm in the Chesley area when he returned from the war and soon became active in his local community and the larger farm community.
He was an organizer with the Federation of Agriculture and founder and later secretary/ manager of the Ontario Pork Producers Marketing Board. He was also a founding member of the Saugeen Community Credit Union, an active member of Saint_John's United Church in Chesley, and strong supporter of the local Chesley Hospital. Each year, Mr. BOYNTON was a participant in the hospital's fundraising walk, often being the oldest participant and often bringing in one of the highest pledge totals.
"We have lost a good friend and a great Canadian," Mr. Whelan said in the e-mail read at Monday's service.
