SHONIKER o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-08-30 published
MOULTON, Albert John
Chosen child, husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, deacon with the Catholic Church, business executive, raconteur. Born October 27, 1925, in Toronto. Died March 6 in Brampton, Ontario, of complications from pneumonia, aged 81.
By David MOULTON, Page L12
Our father started life as George. He was born out of wedlock to Elsie ALLISON (his father was George SHONIKER.) He was adopted in January, 1927, by Bert and Catherine MOULTON, neighbours of the Allison family.
He maintained contact with his birth mother and their family throughout his life although he didn't say anything about it to his children while they were growing up. It was our sister Mary (as an adult) who identified "Aunt Elsie" as his birth mother.
He was a child during the Depression and deeply affected by the poverty his family faced because his father was unemployed. In 1943, he asked his father for permission to sign up for the war effort because he was underage at the time. Dad joined the Royal Canadian Navy and he worked as a stoker on the corvette Hawkesbury on the North Atlantic run.
Upon his return to civilian life in 1945, he took several jobs before finding his career in credit management. He was active in the credit industry, serving as president of the Toronto chapter of the Credit Institute of Canada. He was a contributing author to the textbook for credit education and spent many evenings marking exams from students taking correspondence courses. He received the designation Fellow of the Credit Institute in recognition of his contribution.
In 1949, he married Joan Elizabeth DAILEY and together they raised nine children. Mom stayed at home and Dad was the breadwinner. Our parents were not only busy raising a sizable family, but they were active in their church and the community.
Dad struggled with manic depression for most of his adult life. He went without medication until he was well into his 50s. The doctors focused on his depression and didn't recognize his "highs" - the other half of the illness. Our mother coped with his mood swings and managed to keep him out of harm's way. Lithium brought my father psychological stability in midlife.
In the early 1980s, Dad, with our mother's blessing, went back to school to train as a deacon with the Catholic Church; he was ordained in 1987 and retired in 2004.
In 1999, he received the International Year of Older Persons Award in Ontario. The citation noted that he was "a caring man whom many count on for help and support in difficult times." Dementia was his last challenge, and he was at times difficult to deal with, particularly when he moved into a care facility, but he kept his sense of humour until the end.
Submitted by David MOULTON on behalf of the Moulton and Allison families.

SHORE o@ca.on.middlesex_county.london.london_free_press 2007-07-26 published
Farmers mourn savvy advocate's death
Bob SHORE, 74, has died but dairy farmers won't soon forget his work in the industry.
By Norman DE BONO, Sun Media, Thurs., July 26, 2007
Dairy Farmers across the region are mourning the loss of a Port Stanley resident and national icon.
The death of Robert Hardy SHORE -- or Bob, to most -- means the agricultural community has lost one of the Canadian dairy industry's strongest advocates, the man responsible for helping establish a global export market for domestic dairy cattle.
"We have lost one of the pillars. He, along with his father (Hardy), merchandised an unbelievable amount of cattle," said Court CARMICHAEL, owner of Medway Farms Ltd. in Ilderton.
"He was a great guy. He would do anything for you. He was almost too giving at times but that made the markets grow. People trusted him."
The 74-year-old lived in Glanworth but retired to Port Stanley.
"He bought my grandfather out of the business in 1970, entered the international livestock market and pioneered exports to 62 countries," said SHORE's son, also named Hardy, who is president of Shore Holsteins Corp., near Saint Thomas.
Along with his business acumen, Hardy remembers his father as a "gentleman who never lost his cool. His handshake was good, you could take it to the bank."
After graduating from agricultural college in Guelph and attending a school of auctioneering in Indiana, SHORE joined his father's business, Shore Holsteins, in 1953.
When he became owner he changed the focus of the business from a regional auction enterprise specializing in dairy cattle to an international export firm.
"He was a good businessman and a hard, hard worker," said his son. "He loved the business and the people in it."
In 1964, Hardy began to merchandise genetics, setting record prices.
As an auctioneer, he set world records in individual prices for animals, sale averages and sale grosses in top breeder's and consignment sales in Canada and the U.S.
He auctioned off the world record-setting cow in Port Parry, at $1.45 million.
SHORE retired from active auctioneering in 1994.
"We travelled a lot of miles together and I can tell you, he was a fine man," said John WALKER, owner of Walker Dairy Sales Inc. in Aylmer. "He was the backbone of the Holstein industry&hellip we will miss him. He opened a lot of markets and had a great personality."
Since retiring seven years ago, SHORE took up golf, "which no one believed," said Hardy. "He took it up as a hobby and we expected to see him out there in cowboy boots and a hat."
SHORE was diagnosed with colon cancer four years ago but was later given a "clean bill of health," said Hardy. Two months ago the cancer returned to his bones. He was bed-ridden and in palliative care at Saint Thomas-Elgin General Hospital when he died Monday.
The funeral will be at First United Church in Saint Thomas tomorrow at 1 p.m. Interment to follow in Christ Church Cemetery. Visitation is today from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Williams Funeral Home on Elgin Street in Saint Thomas.
Robert Hardy SHORE
- Inducted into the Canadian Agricultural Hall of Fame in November 1996. Judged dairy cattle on five continents.
- Founder and president of Shore Holsteins International Ltd. - President of the Elgin County Holstein Club.
- Founding member of the Canadian Livestock Exporters Association and twice president.
- Auctioneer for 58 years.

STAPLETON, Arnold Grieve
Joined his wife Helen (née PRESTON) and soul mate of 49 years on Wednesday, December 19, 2007. Born August 2, 1918 in Stratford, Ontario, he is survived by his second wife Mary MacLEOD, brother Bill, brother-in-law Hugh SHORTILL, children Joan BOXER (Richard,) Jeff (Patti,) Diana (Bill TAILOR/TAYLOR,) and Arn (Peggy.) Grandchildren Sarah, John, Todd, Marley, Preston and Katie will sorely miss their Poppa. Uncle Arn leaves giant shoes to fill in the lives of the many Stapleton/Preston relatives spread throughout the world. As corporate lawyer (having graduated from Osgoode Hall in 1950), Director of Personnel and chief labour contract negotiator for General Motors of Canada over a 29 year career, A.G. was the youngest director in the company's history. His was the voice of reason - the calm amidst many a storm during one of the most challenging eras in the United Auto Workers/General Motors contract evolution. Many said that Arn's unique ability to compartmentalize complicated concepts won over both union foes and management associates alike. He was able to maintain composure by utilizing a wonderful sense of humour centered around a quick wit and well placed one-liners. A man of few words, when he spoke, people listened. An English scholar (Words Are Important!), a history and travel buff, a Wagnerian connoisseur, a lover of opera and Shakespeare and one heck of a bridge and chess player, Arn was a 50+ year subscriber to the Stratford Festival (his second most favorite place after the family cottage at Inverhuron Beach). Always willing to give his ample talents to worthy causes, Arn served as Chairman and long time director of the Oshawa General Hospital, board member of both St. Andrew's Church in Oshawa and First-St. Andrew's United Church in London, and was a member in standing of the Law Society of Canada. In the words of his beloved Shakespeare -"to thine own self be true". A celebration of Arn's life will be held at First-St. Andrew's United Church, 350 Queens Avenue at Waterloo, London on Saturday, January 5 at 1: 00 p.m. Reception to follow. Cremation and Spring interment at Avondale Cemetery, Stratford. Memorial contributions to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 633 Colborne Street, Suite 150, London, Ontario N6B 2V3 would be gratefully appreciated.

An English scholar (Words Are Important!), a history and travel buff, a Wagnerian connoisseur, a lover of opera and Shakespeare and one heck of a bridge and chess player, Arn was a 50+ year subscriber to the Stratford Festival (his second most favorite place after the family cottage at Inverhuron Beach). Always willing to give his ample talents to worthy causes, Arn served as Chairman and long time director of the Oshawa General Hospital, board member of both St. Andrew's Church in Oshawa and First-St. Andrew's United Church in London, and was a member in standing of the Law Society of Canada. In the words of his beloved Shakespeare -"to thine own self be true". A celebration of Arn's life will be held at First-St. Andrew's United Church, 350 Queens Avenue at Waterloo, London on Saturday, January 5 at 1: 00 p.m. Reception to follow. Cremation and Spring interment at Avondale Cemetery, Stratford. Memorial contributions to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 633 Colborne Street, Suite 150, London, Ontario N6B 2V3 would be gratefully appreciated.
