KORTE o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-01-06 published
KORTE, Johan Eljas Kalervo (April 8, 1924-January 3, 2007)
After making a valiant 3 month effort to recover from the effects of a raumatic ruptured aneurism, John passed gently into his own 'good night' on January 3rd. He is survived by his harem beloved wife and partner of 52 years Adele (VOGEL,) daughters Johanne (Richard GREGORY) of Vancouver, Nancie LEE, Lu (Susan KING) and Karen all of Ottawa and Heidi (Robert McKEE) of Toronto. Ever the proud grandfather, 'Grampuns' will be sorely missed by Ryan, Keli, Lian and Derek GREGORY, Makena, Hayden and Lake KORTE- MOORE, Quincy and Jesse KORTE- KING and Kayla and Kieran McKEE. Predeceased by his mother and stepfather, Helvi and Eino RINTA, father Paavo KORTE and brother Matti KORTE. Born in Finland and raised in Montreal, John developed a love for the Laurentians and the ski crowd that taught him early on how to 'let 'em run' a phrase he'd enthusiastically repeat many times to young and old in his ski-obsessed family. John spent 42 years working for Bell Canada forging a successful career that began on Baffin Island and ended with 5 fascinating years spent in Saudi Arabia, before retiring to Ottawa. He was one of those fortunate few who loved every minute of his working life and considered it enriched by the experiences and colleagues who coloured his journey. John was a man who read widely, entertained graciously and was humbly grateful for the gifts of Friendship and family that meant so much to him. In lieu of flowers, his family asks that you take the time to sit down with an old friend and share a story or two… remembering that the chances to do so pass us by all too soon. Friends may visit at the Central Chapel of Hulse, Playfair and McGarry, 315 McLeod Street (Ottawa), on Sunday, January 7th, 2007 from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. Funeral Service will be held in the Chapel on Monday, January 8th, 2007 at 2: 30 p.m. Condolences may be sent to

KING, Reginald Ford
Reginald Ford KING passed away on November 5th, 2007. Dearly loved, and a man of integrity and kindness. Born in Port Union, Newfoundland, in 1927. In 1955, Reg moved his young family to southern Ontario, where he felt there would be more opportunity. He found work in the accounting department of the Hamilton based steel and industrial supply company Wilkinson and Kompass and stayed for 35 years, retiring as President and General Manager, in 1990. As a family man, he hugged his sons often, nurtured his three children to succeed as entrepreneurs, and ensured his wife was financially independent of him. At the office, he practiced employment equity before these principals were mainstream. An ethos of sharing credit liberally, and assuming responsibility when things were difficult, served him well. Ideologically conservative for most of his life, during retirement, his views evolved to the centre. He supported same sex marriage and came to feel governments should invest more in social programs. Despite his health challenges and loss of Elizabeth (Betty), his wife of 53 years in 2003, he lived his final years independently and positively, charming all those whom he met to his final days. Beloved by his children and their partners: John (Teresa,) Michigan; Susan (Lu KORTE,) Ottawa; Gary (Laura EAGLES), Ottawa; and nephew Don BRAGG, Hamilton. He also leaves seven cherished grandchildren: Ryan, Matthew, Sean, Vashti, and Dylan KING, and Quincy and Jesse KORTE- KING. Also mourning his passing are his sister Edna CARSON, Washington, and brother Dan (Gloria), Toronto. Following his wishes, a private family service will be held. Thank you to Don, the wonderful neighbours and health professionals who cared for Reg in recent years and months. For those wishing to make a memorial contribution, donations to the Arthritis Society or Shepherds of Good Hope would be appreciated by the family.
