LOVE
In loving memory of our beloved daughter Kathy LOVE and our dear Grandson Brody LOVE who left us so tragically on January 7, 2006.
We little knew that morning
That God was going to call your names,
In life we loved you dearly
In death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you two,
You did not go alone.
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories
Your love is still our guide
And though we cannot see you
You are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.
Forever in our hearts, sadly missed by Mom and Dad, Grandpa and Grandma FREEMAN and all their families.

Bob had a knack of quickly making Friends and then making them honorary and loyal members of his extended family. Bob had a very distinguished academic career. He began his university education at the University of Toronto with an engineering degree and after working in the industry continued on to obtain an M.B.A. at the University of Western Ontario and a Ph.D. at Stanford University. He taught at Berkeley, Western, and the University of Wisconsin, before coming to McMaster from the University of Wisconsin to help establish the PhD program in the Faculty of Business. Bob published some eighty articles in scientific journals, supervised 12 PhD students to completion and co-authored a very influential book in his specialty.

He also served on many high level academic committees and editorial boards. In 1999, the year he retired, he received the Lifetime Achievement in Location Analysis Award. This is an award given only every three years on behalf of a large international and interdisciplinary research community and recognizes the impact of the total contribution of the winner to the field.

'Profound sadness' at GREENBERG's death
Memorial Sunday for former professor, local lecturer
By Denis LANGLOIS, Thursday, May 31, 2007
Well-known architecture expert, lecturer and retired university professor Bob GREENBERG has died from cancer.
People close to GREENBERG say he was a great teacher and a man who cared deeply about architectural preservation and an increased appreciation of architecture.
"We've lost a very rare and unique person," local heritage advocate John HARRISON said in an interview Wednesday.
GREENBERG, who was born in Bronx, New York in 1942, died Monday.
He was instrumental in establishing a degree architecture program at Ryerson University in 1972 and retired from the university in 1999 after a 28-year career. He and his wife Georgina bought a house near Dobbinton in 1992.
GREENBERG has a long list of accomplishments in Grey-Bruce and worked for many years on architectural heritage in the area. He also worked on projects at both Grey Roots and the Bruce County museum and was a founding Bluewater Association of Lifelong Learning lecturer.
He was vocal during the debate over the demolition of the historic Queen's Hotel in Owen Sound.
HARRISON said GREENBERG aroused an interest in people in historical architecture.
"He was a renaissance man in the truest case," he added. "He was a tremendous teacher of architecture."
GREENBERG is survived by five children - Noah, 34, Zoe, 31, Naomi, 22, Paula, 19, and Eli, 15.
Noah GREENBERG, an architect in Seattle, Washington., said Wednesday his father saw the "big picture" and a need to spread an understanding of the importance of architecture.
He said his father's home is filled with architectural drawings, sketch books, scrolls and educational books - enough to fill a library.
Noah said his father was "very close and patient" as a parent..
Georgina recalled her husband had a minor roll in the development of the World Trade Center in New York City, as a junior draftsman creating flow charts on pedestrian traffic. He was designed the award-winning St. Elias Ukranian Catholic Church in Brampton, Ontario, where a celebration of his life will be held this summer.
She said the local heritage work her husband was involved with became like a second career after retirement. He sort of "fell into it" after being approached by people in the community.
Ed WOJS, a Ryerson University professor who was taught by GREENBERG, said he has been receiving e-mails since GREENBERG's death from around the world from his former students.
"There's a profound sadness," he said. "He is the father of our program here at Ryerson."
GREENBERG served as an architecture heritage advisor in both Owen Sound and Collingwood. He worked on the city's facade program, was a consultant on heritage issues and involved in Doors Open and the city's historic walking tour.
"He had a wealth of knowledge and an ability to teach and impart that knowledge to all of us," Owen Sound Mayor Ruth LOVELL said.
GREENBERG advised on such local projects as the Intrawest development at Blue Mountain, the Loblaw's grocery store in Collingwood, the planned expansion of the Owen Sound Farmer's Market and early talks to move and restore a 19th century Mennonite church west of Rockford.
GREENBERG spent more than 600 hours designing and building a scale model of Grey Roots' Moreston village.
Grey Roots' manager Brian MANSER said GREENBERG, who sat on the museum's fundraising committee and lectured there, had a great interest in Grey County architecture and saving historic buildings and 'gave himself completely" to projects.
"It's tough moving forward without him."
GREENBERG also helped design "L'Chaim, the story of the Beth Ezekiel Synagogue," exhibit at Grey Roots.
"The exhibit is a success because of his efforts," synagogue president Jeff ELIE said, adding GREENBERG's knowledge of Judaism, sensitivity and insight proved invaluable.
ELIE said GREENBERG was Jewish by birth, but was not a member of the synagogue although he cared deeply about it. When the building was in danger of collapse, GREENBERG offered his architectural services free of charge.
The Beth Ezekiel Synagogue will hold a memorial service for GREENBERG on Sunday starting at 4: 30 p.m.

City loses a 'favourite son'
By Scott DUNN, Sun Times staff, Tuesday, July 31, 2007
Bill GEORGAS cross-country skiing at the Owen Sound Golf and Country Club in February, 2005. Photo:
The end came unexpectedly for Bill GEORGAS, a man so physically impressive that at 89 he shoveled snow off his roof, in-line skated and skied.
Though small in stature, Mr. GEORGAS' remarkable physical stamina, strength and cheerful spirit were extinguished after his wife found him fallen on the stairs about 4 a.m. Monday. A post-operative examination late Monday suggested he had a heart attack that caused him to fall.
People who knew him heaped superlatives on a man Owen Sound Mayor Ruth LOVELL called a "legend," an "outstanding citizen," the "epitome of a person who loved his community," and an Owen Sound "favourite son."
Marg CAPEL, who selected Mr. GEORGAS as the feature of a "roast and toast" event in June, called him Mr. Owen Sound. She also called him a "wild man on skis."
He visited the city's 150th anniversary homecoming Meet and Greet tent Sunday for a multi-faith church service in the afternoon, then for the evening concert. His family didn't leave with him until about 10 p.m. because Mr. GEORGAS was enjoying himself, talking with people the whole night, his eldest daughter Betty GRAHAM said.
Mr. GEORGAS was the second-oldest among 10 children, all of whom were born in Owen Sound. He attended Northern Business College as a young man but he had always worked in the family movie houses, the Classic and the Savoy theatres.
When those closed he moved to another Famous Players theatre, The Roxy, as a projectionist and retired from there about 20 years ago. His daughter Betty said her dad loved life and was single-minded about things he got interested in, be it golfing, skiing, in-line skating or piano playing. He saw the good in people, as his own dad did, and was a hard worker, she said.
Freda GILLSON, Mr. GEORGAS' sister, said: "He was a very cheerful person and (was) loved by everyone who knew him. He offered encouragement and joy wherever he went."
Younger brother Jimmie GEORGAS, himself a senior champion duathlete, said "He was my mentor."
Mr. GEORGAS loved life and taking chances. When the snowbanks were high he would ski off his roof on top of them. When he was 85 and skiing alone on the West Rocks, he fell through a crevasse but managed to find a way out. He returned the next day to put down boards to protect other skiers.
He skied downhill at Blue Mountain last winter and in-line skated just a couple of weeks ago. A couple years ago he skated to Shallow Lake and back. He would head out, saying little of his destination and not carrying identification because, as he would say, everybody knew him.
In fact, he has fallen a lot and has told people he should have died 20 times over, his daughter recalled. It drove his family crazy, his daughter said.
Mr. GEORGAS's parents were Christ and Sadie GEORGAS, who were born in the Greek town of Sparta. They bought a house in Owen Sound in 1923, which still stands across from A and P.
Mr. GEORGAS was honoured by the city and by the province for his accomplishments as a volunteer. His house is full of awards and honours he received over the years. Pictures of him, usually while cross-country skiing, often appeared in The Sun Times.
In 2003 he told a reporter he'd raised about $180,000 over 23 years in the Rotary Club's annual Winterama cross-country skiing and snowmobiling fundraiser based in Wiarton.
One year he received the Rotary club's prestigious Paul Harris Award. He was inducted in the Owen Sound Sports Hall of Fame in the early 1980s for skiing.
Mr. GEORGAS played piano in local seniors' homes, jumping around excitedly as he played standards of the 1940s. His wife, Helen, would sing and invite men to dance. They did this almost daily in nursing homes around Owen Sound.
Mr. GEORGAS was also a religious man and, in April, he carried the cross for a few steps in the Good Friday procession to city hall. He admired Benny Hinn, the television preacher who claims to heal people of incurable illnesses. Mr. GEORGAS particularly admired Hinn's work to help orphans, Betty GRAHAM said.
"He had a deep compassion for underdogs and for poor people," GRAHAM said of her dad. He was known as "Bible Bill" in his youth and he believed God wanted him to do good in the community. He was a life member of the Brotherhood of Anglican Churchmen of St. George's Church in Owen Sound.
LOVELL saw Mr. GEORGAS most mornings as she walked her dog past his house. He would always ask her how she planned to keep fit that day. He once taught her to downhill ski in the Beaver Valley and left her exhausted by morning's end, while he went up and down the hill the rest of the afternoon.
"Honestly, everybody has a story because he had incredible energy, absolutely incredible energy. He defied age. The years weren't important to him."
William Christopher GEORGAS leaves his wife Helen, and their children Betty Jane and her husband Pete GRAHAM, Christopher GEORGAS and Katherine and her husband Keith McCOLL, grandchildren and great-grand children, nephews and nieces.
Visitation takes place Wednesday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Breckenridge-Ashcroft Funeral Home. The funeral service will take place at St. George's Anglican Church Thursday at 11 a.m. Interment is to take place in Greenwood Cemetery.

LOVENUIK, STEVE
Pa, a master builder of family, Friendships, and structures, passed away peacefully at home, on Wednesday, July 4, 2007. Steve's passion for living life fully and sharing that passion made him unforgettable to all that he met. He was a positive force in many lives, especially his family of 8 children, 17 grandchildren, and to Dorothy, his loving wife of 51 years. Steve is survived by Dorothy; children and grandchildren, Jeff (Cheryl), Anna, Calvin LOVENUIK of Calgary, Laurie (Perry,) Kyle, Kurtis, Michael NISHIYAMA of Edmonton, Donna (John,) Alyson, Veronica, Paula ROONEY of Calgary, Pat (Dale,) Kara, Ben, Mallory KNELLER of Durango, Colorado, Stephen LOVENUIK of Revelstoke, British Columbia, Mary (Gord,) Krysia, Ross, Reid FERGUSON of Calgary, Margaret (Joe) Sofia SCHLIESSLER of Vancouver, British Columbia, and Monica (Dave,) Declan, Brendan GAINER of Redmond, Washington; sisters, Mary (Joe) HOOVER, Elise (Chris) DEMUYNCK, Margaret GELINAS, and brother Al (Heather) LOVENUIK. Steve was born in Smoky Lake in 1934, the son of Anna and Nicholas LOVENUIK. He grew up in Coal Valley. Steve was respected as an owner of a successful construction business in Edmonton. Over many years he was responsible for the construction of several hundred buildings in the area. Steve was forever working to help those he loved. Throughout his life he was always aware of the needs of his growing family and made everyone happy. He gave us a great sense of family that we all possess now - that legacy lives on. He loved to see his family gathered around the dining room table for a feast prepared by Dorothy and to hold everyone captive until he recited his Italian, or Polish, or Latin version of Grace. Like Louis Armstrong sang, Steve lived in 'A Wonderful World'. We will miss him at track meets, recitals, athletic races, golf games, ski hills, volleyball games, dance competitions and soccer games. He was an avid spectator and Number One Fan of his children and his grandchildren's endeavors. We would like to thank Doctor Helen Hays for her kind and caring support and efforts to help make Pa comfortable in his final week. Prayers on Monday, July 9, 2007 at 7: 00 p.m., Hainstock's Funeral Home 9810-34th Ave, Edmonton. Funeral Services on Tuesday, July 10, 2007 at 11: 00 a.m., Saint Thomas More Catholic Parish, 210 Haddow Close (23rd avenue and Terwillegar Drive), with interment at Rosehill Cemetery, Edmonton.
