SALVARINAS, Benjamin James (1968-2007)
It is with the deepest sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Ben SALVARINAS. Beloved son of Dimitrios (Jim) and the late Voulie SALVARINAS, brother to Kathy and Sebastian PELAIA and Mary and John SALVARINAS, and uncle to Evelyn, Elisa, Nicholas and James, he will always be the best thing that ever happened to his wife Jennifer POOLE and much adored by her family of Robin, Mary, Luci, Jonathan, Alana and Wilfrid. A man of many talents, he was a lawyer, businessman, artist and builder, flashing his trademark grin wherever his next project took him. Rich in Friends from California to Cambridge, United Kingdom he was our prince, our ringleader, our visionary and our heart, gone too soon and never to be replaced.

THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, Catharine (1915-2007)
On December 5, 2007 Catharine left this world to join her much loved husband Rhys. With support of daughters Carol and Brenda (and her husband Barry), the help of kind caregivers, wonderful neighbours and the Grace in home Palliative Care Program, Catharine achieved her wish to die in her own home. Her final years were enhanced by her loyal canine companion Mandy.
Catharine was a devoted friend, enjoying an active social life with many Friends and neighbours. One needed to book early if you wanted to go to a movie or lunch. The Leafs, Argos and golf have lost an avid fan. Catharine and sister-in-law Aileen kept the rest of us up to date on all the scores.
Catharine will be remembered by her seven grandchildren, Cathy CRAVEN (John), Nancy CLARK, David CLARK, Karen Clark LE POOLE (Chris.) Michael, Christopher (Jennifer) and Rebecca YOUNG-as the quiet, strong, determined lady that they loved and respected.
The addition of great-grandchildren Julianna, Joshua, and Jasper brought Catharine much pleasure. She anxiously waited for the birth of the newest great-grandchild Finn.
Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners with smashed carrots, apple pie and dingle cake, will all evoke good memories of family times together.
Nana you will live on as Cathariine the Great our beloved Mother and Nana whose quiet nature, and sound ethics have endured life's many tests. You have set the bar high through the example of your life. We are proud of you Nana. We aspire to make you proud of us. We will honour your wishes-we will remember and miss you, but we will let you go.
At Catharine's request cremation and burial have taken place.
Memorial donations may be made to a charity of choice or the Farley Foundation-which provides veterinary care for pets when the owner is unable to pay. The Farley Foundation, 420 Bronte St. S., Suite 205, Milton, Ontario L9T 0H9 www.farley.foundation.org

GALVIN, Jack Stacey
Retired, Jack Galvin Design. Artist, founding president of North York Masters Aquatic Club, past-president of Gwendolyn Park Tennis Club, painter, sculptor, Kiwi extraordinaire!
Peacefully, surrounded by his loving family and with his beautiful wife at his side, on Friday, August 31st, 2007 at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, Toronto, in his 77th year. Beloved husband of Lyla for over 53 years. Loving and very devoted father/father-in-law to Douglas (Judie,) Russell (Rebecca POON) and Tracy (David HYNES.) Cherished and adoring 'Poppa' of Kristy, Kim, Sadie and Frances. Dear brother to Dennis of New Zealand, Brian of Australia and Pattie (Fred McMILLAN) of New Zealand. Lovingly remembered by his niece Vicki MEYER of New Zealand, as well as by many other extended family and so very many dear Friends. Jack was born in Wellington, New Zealand and raised in nearby Wanganui where he developed his love of swimming and all sports. Losing his mother at a young age, Jack learned to be self-sufficient and began his lifelong skill of self-education. Leaving New Zealand in 1952, Jack met his bride-to-be, Lyla, onboard ship enroute to travel Europe. Married in London, England in 1953, they stopped in Canada on the way back to New Zealand and stayed for good. After leading the design effort for the 'Indians of Canada' pavilion at Expo 67, Jack successfully ran his own design business for many years. In 1969 Jack designed and built his family home in an idyllic valley of the west Don River. Jack's love of life was expressed in his vibrant paintings, woodcarvings, furniture, and other creations, as well as in his penchant for costume parties, singsongs around the piano or campfire, card nights, doing the haka, and midnight tobogganing. Musically gifted, he could play most instruments he picked up. His enthusiasm, hospitality and good humour were legendary among his many Friends and he was always the first to volunteer, whether for a new adventure or to lend a helping hand. Jack was a lifelong good steward of the earth and a regular blood donor. After retirement, Jack and Lyla did not slow down. They traveled, continued tennis and competitive swimming, and swam regular mornings at the Frost pool. Jack took up downhill skiing at age 65 and spent many wonderful days flying down the slopes - finally getting a helmet at 74! Jack never lost the spark of youth or the twinkle in his eye. He lovingly cared for his beloved Lyla until his last day. Those who knew him, will remember him always. A memorial service to celebrate Jack's life will be held at the R.S. Kane Funeral Home (6150 Yonge Street, at Goulding, south of Steeles), on Saturday, September 29th, 2007 at 11 o'clock. Interment, York Cemetery. As an expression of sympathy, donations may be made to the Canadian Hemochromatosis Society (www.toomuchiron.ca) or a charity of your choice. Please consider donating blood in memory of Jack. Condolences www.rskane.ca R.S. Kane 416-221-1159
