RAINEY, C. William " Bill"
Bill passed away in the early morning of August 27th after a short but undaunted and fearless battle with colon cancer at the young age of 54, with his family by his side. He will be forever loved and remembered by his beautiful wife, Diane (JEFFERIES,) and his fantastic and adored children, Kacie and Jeff and his faithful Boxer, Kona. He is also survived by his three brothers, Doug, Dave (Deanna) and Brian RAINEY; his sister-in-law Janice QUINN and her husband Sean, and his two very special nieces, Avianna and Joelle QUINN; brother-in-law David JEFFERIES; Michelle and Emilie RAINEY; Ellen, Jeff, Laurie and Victoria POWERS. Predeceased by his mother and father, Shirley and Keith RAINEY; and his mother-in-law, Nora JEFFERIES. Bill was born in Duncan, British Columbia and moved to Calgary at a very early age. He attended Elboya Elementary and Jr. High and graduated from Henry Wise Wood High School. Bill received his B.Sc. from the University of Alberta in 1976. With a never ending quest to learn, Bill earned numerous diplomas from the University of Calgary and Queen's University School of Business, Executive Development Centre. Through the DeGroote School of Business at McMaster University, he was currently preparing to write the Chartered director's exam in September. After the successful completion of this course the Chartered Director Designation (C. Dir) would have been bestowed upon him. After completing university and a 6 month adventure tour of Europe, Bill began his business career with Xerox in Calgary and then went on to work for Royal Trust in Toronto where he took on increasing responsibilities leading to his position as Managing Partner Sales Management and Training. He and his family moved back to Calgary for several years where he assumed a Directors position with AGT/Telus. Group Telecom recognized his skills and Bill and his family once again moved to Oakville to lead the National Sales and Technical Support teams as Senior Vice President. Three years ago, Bill with his incredible 'A' team was given the opportunity to create the vision, culture and environment of the start up Voice over Internet Protocol Company, Vonage Canada. Bill was honoured to have served this team as President of the company. Giving back to the community was extremely important to Bill and his passion for helping children led him to become the Chairman of Kid's Help Phone in Alberta as well as being a member of the National Board of Kid's Help Phone. Bill was also the Chairman of the Executive Advisory Council for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Bill's special interest and truth be told, his gift, was the mentoring, nurturing and coaching of his family, Friends and business colleagues. He was able to bring out the best in those people who sought out his wisdom and guidance. Watching Kacie's karate classes and Jeff's hockey games gave Bill immense pride. His voracious passion for reading allowed Bill to gain incredible insight and invaluable knowledge into history and business. Bill loved taking family vacations to warm and exotic places where he could indulge in his love of scuba diving and sailing. These vacations and adventures also allowed Bill to capture those moments through his love of photography. Golf was the game that kept Bill humble. Bill always looked forward to taking the annual holiday to the family cabin at Sylvan Lake, Alberta where he could relax with his family and Friends who always dropped by. There will be an open house to Celebrate Bill's life on Tuesday, September 11th, 2007, from 4: 00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. with a short commemoration beginning at 4: 30 p.m. The celebration will be held at the Glen Abbey Golf Club at 1333 Dorval Drive, Oakville. A Celebration will also be held at the Glencoe Club in Calgary, Alberta on Friday, September 21st, 2007. A special thank you to all the caring Doctors and staff at Oakville-Trafalgar Memorial Hospital, the Henderson Hospital in Hamilton, and our family physician and friend, Doctor John DENBY. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to any Children's Hospital, the Kid's Help Phone or the Canadian Cancer Society.

Man hurt in 'terrible' barbecue blast dies
Fire officials issue a safety warning about propane tanks after the elderly victim's death.
By Randy RICHMOND, Sun Media, Fri., July 20, 2007
An elderly air force veteran burned in a propane barbecue explosion has died, prompting a warning from city firefighters about the potential dangers of the "routine household product."
John (Jack) COLEMAN died Wednesday from burns received three weeks ago.
He was 84.
A relative said yesterday the family is in shock.
"He was a great guy," the relative said.
Firefighters say COLEMAN was operating his propane barbecue June 25 at his residence, Unit 20 of 1755 Louise Blvd., near Richmond Street and Fanshawe Park Road.
A spare propane tank stored near the barbecue grew hot and, under pressure, the gas inside was released.
The barbecue's flames ignited the venting gas.
COLEMAN's deck started on fire and he tried to put out the flames with a fire extinguisher. But the propane tank released gas again, this time directly at him.
"It was like a mini-explosion," said Jack PLANT, chief fire prevention officer.
COLEMAN received third-degree burns to a substantial portion of his body, said fire department spokesperson Rick JEFFERSON.
"It is a terrible thing."
Propane is an explosive gas and its containers must be treated with caution, firefighters reminded Londoners yesterday.
"It's a routine product that people use all the time," JEFFERSON said.
But people don't use it properly all the time, firefighters said.
Propane tanks should never be stored near heat sources or inside, PLANT said.
"The sun shouldn't affect it but shade is better."
Propane gas is heavier than air and can collect at the floor level inside a home, making it difficult to detect.
A simple spark can ignite it and cause considerable damage inside a home.
Many people transport the tanks incorrectly as well, JEFFERSON said, pointing out tanks shouldn't be transported in the trunk of a car, where they can roll and hit other objects.
That in turn could release a tank's valve.
Released gas can build up in the trunk, close to a vehicle's many heat sources, JEFFERSON said.
It's safer to put the tank in the front seat, upright, with all the windows open to vent any gas, he added.
COLEMAN served in the Royal Canadian Air Force in the Second World War, and after the war worked for Beatty Brothers of Fergus, Ontario, and from 1957 to 1987 with National Starch and Chemical Company.
He joined the Freemason's Saint_John's Lodge 209A in 1953 and volunteered with the Consistory Club, which provides equipment for the handicapped.
COLEMAN is survived by his wife of 56 years, Shirley, three children, seven grandchildren, and his brother and sister.
His funeral will be at 11 a.m. Monday at Robinson Memorial United Church, 1061 Richmond Street, at Sherwood Avenue.

Robert STACEY, 58: Curator
He was 'the most authoritative student of Canadian art history'
By Noreen SHANAHAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S10
As an independent Canadian art history scholar with a mind that never shut off, Robert STACEY was an archivist's nightmare. He'd badger them with obscure questions, demand accuracy and behave like some kind of academic detective who ferreted out truths.
"Bob STACEY saved our ass," said writer Christopher Moore, referring to his collaboration on The Illustrated History of Canada in the mid-1980s. "Here was someone who knew every image of the Canadian past, knew what it signified and how to use it, and knew where to secure prints and rights at blinding speed."
Mr. STACEY worked on art history projects, books, documentaries, gallery shows and academic study projects from one end of Canada to the other. "But it barely jelled into a career," said Mr. Moore. "He was always simultaneously a freelance art curator and the most authoritative student of Canadian art history anyone knew."
Bob STACEY was born with an arts legacy. The son of Harold STACEY, a renowned Toronto silversmith, and Margaret STACEY, the third daughter of artist C.W. JEFFERYS, he grew up in a home where art was an everyday topic. After all, his father's work had been acquired by the National Gallery, while his grandfather's art was found in the Art Gallery of Ontario, the War Museum, the Library and Archives of Canada and many private collections. According to Mr. STACEY's partner, Maggie KEITH, he enjoyed a childhood in which an appreciation for the arts was considered to be a perfectly normal part of life. "That's what normal people did. Who you would question, instead, would be people who weren't involved in the arts; what did they do with themselves all day?"
In 1966, while a Grade 11 student at Northview Heights Collegiate in North York, Bob wrote, directed and acted in an absurdist play called A Dream of Unreason that was performed at Hart House Theatre in Toronto. Two years later, he graduated from high school and enrolled at the University of Toronto. While an undergraduate, he ran into some unusual academic challenges. Instead of providing essays on assigned topics, he often annoyed his professors by pursuing independent lines of scholarly research. One of his early obsessions was moving the Canadian art world away from the notion that the Group of Seven was born as a reaction to something staid and European. For instance, he positioned C.W. Jefferys as an artist at the centre of an important group who painted the Canadian landscape a good 15 years before members of the Group of Seven had ever taken a walk in the woods.
In 1976, Mr. STACEY curated "C.W. Jefferys, 1869-1951" at the Agnes Etherington Gallery in Kingston. Two years later, he curated a poster-art exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario, followed by the publication of The Canadian Poster Book: 100 Years of the Poster in Canada. According to Ms. KEITH, he was once again compelled to debunk a popular notion of art history by proving that some of the Group of Seven had earned their living as commercial artists, and that tattered broadsheet advertising could be works of art.
"Bob was one of the most thorough, questioning researchers-writers I've ever met," said Jim Burrant, who answered many of his calls at the Library and Archives Canada. "He was always looking for answers, so you tended to feel bombarded with phone calls and wonderfully handwritten messages about various points. I learned so much working with Bob and trying to answer his questions."
An example of the depth of his research was evident in 1997, when he was working on the book Massanoga: The Art of Bon Echo and discovered that nobody had ever photographed the pictographs on Mazinaw Rock. He hired a photographer and crossed the ice one frigid March day, cameras in tow. "It probably cost him as much as he earned on the book," said Mr. Burrant.
Mr. STACEY published a variety of other books and curated a number of successful exhibitions on Canadian art history during the 1970s and 1980s. At the same time, his reputation as a researcher grew. He consistently juggled a fistful of scholarly projects: citizens fighting to save historical murals; publishers seeking historical images for their book covers; art auction houses looking to authenticate paintings.
"When someone in Canada has a problem, a challenge, or an opportunity involving images of Canada's history, as often as not a call will reach Robert STACEY at the Archives of Canadian Art and Design in an old industrial building on the edge of downtown Toronto," Mr. Moore wrote in The Beaver.
Mr. STACEY was frustrated by what he called laziness by historians, art directors and writers who used illustration in a very cavalier manner. "They act as if everything were in the public domain and don't credit the artist or the source - partly because things get swiped so often, so one sees the same images, and the same misinformation about them, perpetuated again and again," he said in The Beaver.
From 1991 to 1992, Mr. STACEY became the first Fellow at the National Gallery of Canada with work focusing on 20th century Canadian art, including preparing a monograph on the graphic art and design work of J.E.H. MacDonald of the Group of Seven.
An impressive series of publications and exhibitions followed, including "Varley: A Celebration" (1997); North by South: The Art of Peleg Franklin Brownell (1998); "Qu'Appelle: Tale of Two Valleys" (1998) and a group exhibition and publication called The Group of Seven in Western Canada (2002).
Mr. STACEY was adjunct curator at the McMichael Gallery in Kleinburg, Ontario, in 2002 but, according to Ms. KEITH, it was a heartbreaking experience. She described the gallery's rigid and conservative approach to exhibitions, and the fact that then-Ontario premier Mike Harris had passed legislation limiting what could be collected. The McMichael board, she said, didn't like contemporary works in travelling exhibitions.
"For a long time, Bob had badly wanted an adjunct curatorship at a public gallery so that he could advocate for his projects more effectively than he could as an outsider… unfortunately, the appointment came too late for him."
Mr. STACEY was an alcoholic and within a few months of accepting this position he suffered a seizure. He continued working, but was forced to slow down during his last few years.
Robert STACEY was born July 2, 1949, in North York, Ontario He died of liver failure on November 4, 2007, in Toronto. He was 58. He is survived by his partner, Maggie KEITH, and his mother, Margaret STACEY. He also leaves his sister Clara.
