SENGERS, Frans " Frank" Hendrik Jan
On Friday, October 5, 2007. Survived by his wife Hans, daughter Johanna (Joleen) KAY and son-in-law Rex KAY, and granddaughters Tatjana and Zahavah. Also survived by his sister Mieke DELLOYE of Belgium and her seven sons and their families. Born September 1, 1927 in Gennep, The Netherlands Frans immigrated to Oakville in 1963.

He criss-crossed the country with his wife and daughter and he and Hansje spent their retirement exploring the small towns, Native communities and art galleries of Southern Ontario. Frans loved reading history, listening to jazz and making his granddaughters laugh. He faced cancer with courage, wit and astonishing physical and emotional strength. The family thanks Doctors Howard WINSTON, Andrea BEZJAK, Ron BURKES and Jon HUNTER for their dedication. Contributions may be made to the Mount Sinai Hospital at 416.586.8290. Welterusten, Papa.

KAY, Gloria Violet (BARWELL) B.Sc., B.A., M.Sc.N.
Peacefully in hospital on Thursday, October 25, 2007. Beloved wife of orthopedic surgeon George KAY for 54 years. Dear sister of Anne BARWELL, the Late Cora BARWELL and the late Arthur BARWELL Jr. Gloria pursued a vigorous career in nursing both academic and practical. During her hospital duties, she noted, some 30 years ago that, progressively, nurses were not wearing a cap - the historical symbol of a nurse. To preserve them, at least as a collection, she set to, and 20 years later donated to the Canadian Museum of Civilization (and enthusiastically accepted) over 170 caps each from an individual school of nursing. Her collection is regarded as the largest one known. Unfortunately she died amongst a flurry of capless nurses, but her display still remains and will continue to do so. A memorial service will be held at Holy Trinity Anglican Church, 140 Brooke Street, Thornhill on Wednesday November 7th at 1: 30 p.m. Following the service a reception will be held in the church hall. In lieu of flowers anyone wishing to make a charitable donation may do so to the Toronto East General Hospital Foundation or the North York General Hospital Foundation.

PAVANEL, Charles " Charlie" (1925-2007)
Charles PAVANEL, who died Saturday, November 17, 2007 at the age of 82, enjoyed every opportunity life afforded him. 'You only go through this world once,' he said, 'so you've got to have a good time.' For Charlie, a good time meant standing by his family and Friends through thick and thin, living large at social gatherings, sharing a joke or handful of cash with strangers in need, and excelling at sports and in business. A no-nonsense competitor and unafraid to take chances, Charlie commanded the respect and affection of many who met him on the field and in the boardroom. Born in 1925 in Cooksville to Carlo and Elena PAVANEL, who had emigrated from Treviso, Italy, Charles was the youngest of seven children. From the age of nine he was drawn time and again to the Credit Valley Golf Course, where he learned the game first as a caddie and later as a talented and dedicated player. He also showed great skill as a running back for the Port Credit High School football team. It was at high school that he met his future wife, Mary McDERMOTT, who was a member of the cheerleading squad. They were married on April 28, 1951, in a small ceremony at the Port Credit Presbyterian Church, and went on to have five children. During the Second World War, Charlie served in the Navy. He graduated in Chemical Engineering from the University of Toronto in 1951. Right out of school he was hired by B.F. Goodrich to work in Waterloo as part of the Chemical Division's sales team, and some time later became one of the firm's leading managers. After settling in he joined Rockway Golf Club and later Westmount Golf and Country Club, where he laid low the competition for more than three decades, both on the golf course and, for several years, the curling rink. A 3-handicapper - with a best score of 69 on par 72 - Charlie took great pleasure in playing many of the top courses in the world, and always appreciated the game for opening innumerable doors both in business and Friendship. He was also a member of the KW Racquet Club in Kitchener, the Mississauga Golf Club, the Tournament Players Club in Dearborn, Michigan, and the Vines Golf Club in Fort Myers, Florida. He also belonged to the local Gyro Club. In 1974, Charlie enjoyed immediate success with the founding of Genesta Manufacturing, which was begun with the help of Mary, who ran the office out of their dining room for the first year. Hematite Manufacturing was added in 1978, and in 1987, Genesta, Hematite and other interests became Pavaco Plastics Inc. Under Charlie's leadership, the company garnered several awards, and introduced many industry firsts in the lighting and automotive sectors. Charlie was devastated following the death of Mary on May 7, 1986, but a year later had the good fortune to meet Vivian McLEAN, and after 12 happy years they were married on July 13, 2000. Charles is survived by Vivian, his children Ellen, John, Jane and Joanne (Alex predeceased him on December 20, 2006), and their spouses Wendy, Clare, Sami, Mark and Mike; his grandchildren Adam, Leah, Kate, Evan, Hailie, Charlie, Nicholas, Hannah, May, Jack, Liam, Maddie, Callum, Hannah, Amy and Elizabeth; his brother and sister-in-law Bruni and Marie, and his sister-in-law Mary KAY. Charles is missed by Vivian's children, Wendy, Susan, Gary, and Patrick. He is lovingly remembered for being a generous and upright father, a fun-loving uncle, an excellent companion to his Friends, and a good provider for all who were fortunate to enjoy the charm and embrace of his company. A memorial celebration of Charles' life will be held at Del Dente's at The Charcoal Steakhouse, 2980 King St. E. Kitchener on Sunday, December 2, 2007 from 1-4 p.m. A private family service at Charles's residence was officiated by Rev. Walter McLEAN. As an expression of your sympathy, a donation may be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association, 14 Irvin Street, Suite 1, Kitchener, Ontario N2H 1K8. Erb and Good Family Funeral Home Ltd. 171 King Street South, Waterloo, Ontario N2J 1P7 Phone: 519-745-8445 Fax: 519-745-9992. www.erbgood.com

BLACK, Kenneth James
Died on August 11, 2007 at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto from complications following pneumonia. Loving husband of Mary, who predeceased him in 1976, a devoted father to Amy and grandfather to Theo BROOKE, born August 2006; he was adored by Amy, Theo and son-in-law Stephen BROOKE. His sister-in-law Marjorie BLACK, nieces and nephew Cathy, Diane and Norm BLACK, great-nephew Gregory BLACK and great-niece Jacqueline BLACK, cousins Michel JONES, Stephen and Stuart THURSBY, Wendy and Bill KREVER, and Natalie COYLE were all dear members of his family in Ontario. He will be greatly missed by all his family from Winnipeg: brother-in-law Alfred KAYE, nephews and nieces John, Kathie, Gordon and Jeanne KAYE; great-nieces and great-nephews Liz, Cameron, Donna, Michael, and Michele KAYE, Michael PURVES- SMITH and Robert POHL. Ken was also a dear and caring uncle to niece Nicola IVANOVIC, nephews David and Neil CHAPMAN, great-nieces Natasha and Isabella IVANOVIC and Jessica CHAPMAN, all of Merseyside, England; he was a cherished brother-in-law to Rosemarie CHAPMAN and Dennis CHAPMAN, also of Merseyside. He was predeceased by his sister, Elizabeth, and brothers Ralph and Arthur, and by his nieces Jacqueline BLACK and Margaret KAYE. Ken's strong sense of loyalty and fun animated a wide circle of Friends in Canada and in England over his entire life.
Ken was born in Winnipeg on May 10, 1924, the youngest of Norman and Margaret BLACK's four children. He attended the University of Manitoba and served in the Royal Canadian Navy in corvettes during the Second World War. After the war, he became a journalist, first working at the Winnipeg Free Press and the Winnipeg Tribune then spending time in Europe and England for Reuters. In 2006, he published a memoir of his adventures during and after the war entitled Telling It Like It Was. He joined the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in 1957 where he worked, in both radio and television, for over 35 years, in London, England, Saint John's, Newfoundland and Toronto. After his retirement he dedicated himself to his many interests, including travelling, writing, neighbourhood activism, birdwatching and his legendary annual Victoria Day Party.
Ken brought an unrivalled joy to life and touched everyone he met with this enthusiasm and with his charm and humour. He was a true gentleman, but with a wry and sometimes mischievous outlook. Ken had the gift of treating everyone with the same gracious manner. As the countless guests to his house will attest, he was the soul of hospitality. He was as happy playing with children as entertaining adults and will be remembered by a number of generations as the delightful and engaged grown-up always ready with wind-up toys, kites, stories and songs. His interests were eclectic, but they were bound together by an unceasing curiosity and energy. Ken was the cherished heart of a number of social worlds and families. He will be sorely missed. A memorial service will be held on Friday, August, 17, 2007 at 3: 00 p.m. at Enoch Turner Schoolhouse, 106 Trinity Street (one block east of Parliament, just south of King Street East, Toronto). In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Ken's memory to the Bruce Trail Association.
