HURLEY, Daniel Michael, C.D., LL.M, Ph.D, LL.D, Q.C.
The death of Doctor Daniel Michael HURLEY of Fredericton occurred at the Veteran's Health Unit, Fredericton on the 8th August, 2007. Born May 4th 1929, in Barnaby River, New Brunswick, he was the son of Clara (MAHER) and Daniel HURLEY. Born into a large family in the small farming community of Semiwagon Ridge on the Miramichi, Dan proved to be an outstanding student and athlete. He won a scholarship to Saint Thomas University, then located in Chatham, New Brunswick, and graduated magna cum laude in 1950 as class valedictorian. Commissioned in the Royal Canadian Armoured Corps, Lord Strathcona's Horse Regiment, Dan served in Korea and Japan in 1952-53 with the United Nations Forces. Following an honourable discharge with the rank of Captain, he returned to his scholarly pursuits. With a Beaverbrook Scholarship, he completed his Bachelor of Civil Law at University of New Brunswick and went again abroad to complete a Masters in Law at the London School of Economics. In London he met a stunning and similarly talented young lawyer, Kathleen MURPHY, who was completing her own LL.M at King's College. They married in 1960 and returned to Fredericton where Dan was appointed Assistant Professor of Law at University of New Brunswick Law School and earned the rank of Full Professor by 1970. In his more than 30-year career at University of New Brunswick he served as Associate Dean of Law, sat on numerous committees, continued to practice law, served on various councils and taskforces, and published widely. He was appointed Queen's Counsel in 1989. His tireless commitment to public service kept him active in community and public sector work; he was Chair for many years of the District 26 Board of School Trustees, a member of both provincial and federal Parole Boards, the John Howard Society, Fredericton Children's Aid Society, Friends of the Beaverbrook Art Gallery, Fredericton Foundation Inc, and numerous others. A stalwart supporter of the Liberal Party, he worked as a campaign manager, stood as a candidate, and offered his services in nearly all aspects of local, provincial and federal politics. A man of boundless energy and generosity, Dan strove to achieve excellence, fairness and justice in all his endeavors. His greatest love and reward was to serve the needs of others, be they his family, his students, his colleagues or his country. He was predeceased eight months ago by his beloved wife, Kate. Also predeceased by three brothers: Martin Maher HURLEY, John Leo HURLEY and James David HURLEY; one sister, Sister Phoebe HURLEY; and an infant daughter. He leaves his son Daniel and daughter-in-law Annika ROSE of Whitehorse and his daughter Clarissa of Fredericton. Also survived by four brothers: Col. Ray HURLEY of Ottawa, Peter HURLEY of Miramichi, Joe HURLEY and Anthony HURLEY (Louise) of Toronto, and four sisters: Sister Mary HURLEY and Clarissa HURLEY of Saint John, Alice BILLINGTON (Cliff) of Toronto and Stella RENNEBURG (Ray) of Kamloops, British Columbia. Dan's family extends sincere thanks to the excellent caregiving team at the Veteran's Health Unit. The family will receive visitors at McAdam's Select Community Funeral Home, 160 York Street, Fredericton on Monday, August 13, 2007 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Dunstan's Roman Catholic Church on Tuesday, August 14th, 2007 at 12: 00 noon with Fr.

HARRIS, Donald Warren
Dairy farmer, husband, father. Born July 16, 1922, in Toronto. Died June 27 of heart failure in Guelph, Ontario, aged 84.
By Warren HARRIS and Donna HOLLANDS- HURST, Page L8
While sitting under an apple tree in post-war Apeldoorn, The Netherlands, Canadian soldier Don HARRIS realized he had seen enough death and destruction to last a lifetime - he wanted to be a farmer. A surprising revelation from this city boy who had never spent any time on a farm, although he had spent summers in lumber camps in Northern Ontario.
The son of Ralph and Edna, Don grew from early days playing along the banks of Toronto's Humber River to being a civil-engineering student at the University of Toronto.
A chance meeting of his sister's led to an encounter with Isobel HARRISON, a legal secretary seeking a room in which to board in Toronto. Quickly smitten, Don announced to a somewhat startled family that he was to marry this sweet and clever girl from north of the city. What little farm experience they had was to be gleaned from one summer at an uncle's dairy operation.
They settled near Guelph on the land that was to be their home for the next 59 years. The farm, named Bengar by the Scots who settled there in the 1830s, became home to children Jane, Ruth, Ralph and Warren. The early days of turnip fields that failed to germinate, work horses that had seen better times and neighbours unimpressed by these city newcomers gave way to a dairy operation managed for more than 30 years.
The sudden death of Don's eldest child, Jane, in 1977, was a time of deep grief. Don sought solace through working the land or being alone in the barn, serenading the cows at milking time. It was the only time he was heard singing, as shyness precluded him doing so in public.
Retirement from active dairy farming offered Don more time to cultivate a large vegetable garden or spend quiet days reading. His eight grandchildren grew up sharing his silly jokes, disjointed poetry and incessant word play. A kind and gentle man, he recalled with fondness memories of times with his grandchildren when they were young, and found comfort in recalling them even more frequently as his health failed.
A growing list of ailments led to his being diagnosed with inoperable heart-valve failure in early spring; with constant care from his darling Isobel, he spent his final days at home on the farm.
These were his essentials: to love and live his life with Isobel to have children to love; and to make a living by the work of his hands. He deliberately went to the land to cultivate, not to devastate. His life was void of any deep regret, and true to those initial plans made under an apple tree those many years ago.
Warren HARRIS is Don HARRIS's youngest child; Donna HOLLANDS- HURST is a family friend.
