SULLIVAN, John Joseph (August 24, 1926-August 25, 2007)
Peacefully at his Glenforest home, on Saturday, August 25, 2007, one day after his 81st birthday, following a valiant struggle with cancer. John, the eldest son of the late Doctor Orland P. and Marie SULLIVAN (née ROCHE,) will be sorely missed by his loving brother, David, his devoted sister, Ann (CANNING) and her husband Dr. Hugh CANNING, and his cherished youngest sister, Patricia (VINCENT) and her husband, Eric. John now joins his late sister-in-law, and dear friend, Audrey SULLIVAN. Uncle John was an overwhelming presence. He contributed to the lives of his many nieces and nephews: Mary, John and Ruth Ann SULLIVAN; Ann Marie, Hughie, who predeceased him earlier this year, Michael and Ted CANNING Cathy, Chris, Patty and Joanne VINCENT; as well as their respective spouses. His singular perspective and inimitable interests, coupled with his endless generosity of spirit and time, touched a third generation of great nieces and nephews. From Leaf games, movies, and 'the Ex', to late night hamburgers, donuts and Night Sky Gazing-101, he provided a dimension and substance that will never fade from memory. 'Unc' sustained a unique presence in each person's life. A natural master of mathematics and education, 'Mr. SULLIVAN' created a special bond with his many students at Sutton and Milton District High Schools during his more than 35 years as a teacher. His one-of-a-kind personality, colourful wardrobe and love of hockey and its uniforms brought joy and laughter to his classroom. John will be intensely missed by those whose lives he touched and to whom he brought brilliant and unforgettable colour. Who could forget: the man wearing the orange shirt walking from Orillia to Toronto; the slideshows that chronicle the events of his life his pictures of the great structures of the world; and his drawings of his own personal army of paper hockey and football players. John's passion was exploring his surroundings and sharing the joy of his experiences with those he loved. John carved a special path for himself through this world. He was irrepressible, and is, irreplaceable. Friends may call at the Trull Funeral Home and Cremation Centre, 2704 Yonge Street (5 blocks south of Lawrence), on Wednesday from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at Blessed Sacrament Church (Yonge Street, south of Lawrence) on Thursday morning at 11 o'clock.

Canada's youngest pilot was a natural flier who became a top jet jockey
It was all he ever wanted to do, and in 1938, he became the youngest licensed pilot in the country. He enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force and later joined Trans Canada Airlines. When he finally switched to jets, it was 'better than sex'
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Toronto -- Just hours before Allied troops landed on the beach in Normandy on D-Day, Flying Officer Frank VINES dropped 16 paratroopers and four canisters of supplies behind German lines. Just a few years earlier, he had been celebrated as Canada's youngest licensed pilot.
On June 6, 1944, Mr. VINES was a transport pilot flying Dakotas, the military version of the DC-3. On the night of June 5, he had to wait until 11 p.m. to take off since the sky was still bright at that time of year. The flight took 3½ hours and his log book mentions being hit by machine-gun fire from the ground along the way. His log also details another flight, on June 6, during which he was hit by flak from a Royal Navy ship -- "a small burst off the rear bulkhead" -- that damaged the tail of the aircraft.
"After he dropped his cargo, the plane nosed down because it had been hit in the elevator trim. They had to pull up so hard on the yoke he felt his arms were going to fall off," said his son, John VINES. "He could only do it for five minutes before the co-pilot took over."
Years later, Mr. VINES said he believed the drop zone was about 50 kilometres inland -- probably near the town of Caen in Normandy.
There were many other trips across the Channel during the Normandy campaign. On June 20, he returned to France, this time landing to pick up wounded soldiers. Margaret ECKER, war correspondent for Canadian Press, reported on the flight and the story appeared on front pages back home.
"Six Canadian soldiers were among the first battle casualties evacuated by air yesterday from the front line in Normandy to emergency hospitals in England. Less than two hours after a big transport plane lifted them from a casualty clearing station on an airfield within range of sniper's guns, the men were in bed in a tented air evacuation centre in the English countryside."
Ms. ECKER then listed the soldiers who were leaving France and the pilots who were flying them.
"Among the men who fly the England-France route when it becomes the milk run for carrying supplies across the Channel and bring back the wounded are F.O. Frank VINES, who took a planeload of paratroops across the channel on D-Day."
Later that year, during the campaign in Northwestern Europe, he was involved in dropping paratroops into Arnhem in Operation Market Garden, the Allied military failure documented in the movie A Bridge Too Far.
Although he was an experienced pilot before the Second World War, Mr. VINES almost didn't get to fly in Europe. He was so anxious to go overseas that he contrived to almost get himself court-martialed. It worked.
His problem started when he joined the Royal Canadian Air Force. At 19, he had been too good a pilot with too much flying experience after having qualified for his pilot's licence when he was just 17 -- at the time, the youngest pilot in Canada.
He started pilot training at 14 at the Lambeth Flying Club outside London, Ontario, and made his first solo flight six months later in a De Havilland Moth biplane. He was ready to be granted his pilot's licence when he was 15, but authorities made him wait, saying he too young.
As a boy, he had been aviation crazy. He took his first flight at the age of 6 when his parents, both English immigrants, took back to England. There, he and his father went up in a plane at Blackpool, the sea resort.
His father was a locomotive engineer with the Canadian Pacific Railway and was transferred to Goderich, Ontario, where Frank later went to high school. A friend, George PARSONS, remembered a peaceful, idyllic boyhood. Their only act of rebellion, he said, was to occasionally skip school for a little snooker, a game they played all their lives. By that time, Mr. VINES and his father were both learning how to fly. The pair used to drive together to the flying school, but it was the son who received his licence first.
Mr. VINES graduated from high school in June, 1940, 10 months after war broke out. He promptly joined the Royal Canadian Air Force, which was desperate for pilots and glad to have him. He reported to the air base at Trenton, Ontario, the following month, expecting to be sent overseas almost right away. Instead, because of his flying experience, he was made an instructor.
He was eventually stationed at Windsor, Ontario, as part of the Commonwealth Air Training Plan. As one of Canada's largest contributions to the war, the program trained 200,000 pilots and air crew from across the Commonwealth at airfields across the country.
The routine for Mr. VINES involved taking young men and training them to fly in a Fleet Finch biplane before moving on to more advanced training, such as the more powerful single-wing Harvard. "After six months of instructing, I thought anybody could do it -- and wished they had. It was just the monotony of it. You'd get a guy to where you thought he could fly and you'd lose him [to an active posting]. Then you started all over again with another bunch of students," Mr. VINES told author Ted Barris for the book Behind the Glory.
Despite the monotony of flight training, it could still be dangerous - many students and instructors were killed in flying accidents. After a couple of years doing it, Mr. VINES seemed no closer to being posted to an overseas squadron. So he and a friend took action.
"Frank and I got in a couple of Fleets and flew low formation over the Dominion Day event," Brick Bradford told Mr. Barris. "We did a slow roll and a couple of loops over the park" near the St. Clair River. Below them, senior Royal Canadian Air Force officers stood on a reviewing stand, outraged at the antics. The pilots' purpose was to let the brass know they were anxious to get overseas.
According to Mr. PARSONS, however, the incident had an even more dramatic effect.
"The way Frank told me was a little different," Mr. PARSONS said. "They flew their planes under the Ambassador Bridge between Windsor and Detroit. While the stunt demanded some skill, Royal Canadian Air Force brass saw it as reckless and the two of them were almost court-martialled."
But the flying partners got the desired result and were soon sent on real missions. For Mr. VINES, that meant flying Hudson bombers out of Halifax on anti-submarine missions, and then a sea voyage to England, before being posted to Gibraltar. He was assigned to 233 Squadron of the Royal Air Force, where he flew Hudsons against U-boats in the Atlantic.
Nine months later, he transferred to Transport Command, flying Dakotas from a base in Wiltshire in southwestern England. It was from there that he so often crossed the English Channel to France. In January of 1945, he joined Ferry Command and delivered bombers and Dakotas across the Atlantic to bases in Scotland and Cairo. He did that until August, 1945.
When the war ended, he VINES returned to Canada and joined Trans-Canada Airlines, the forerunner of Air Canada. He started in May of 1946, flying Lockheed Lodestars, DC-3s and larger DC-4 airliners.
At that time, Ottawa introduced a new pilot rating called the Airline Transport Pilot Licence. Mr. VINES's number was 000002, meaning he was the second pilot in Canada to get it. "He used to say the person with licence 000001 was the man from the Department of Transport who certified him," his son said.
In 1948, he left Trans-Canada Airlines and became a private pilot for Massey Harris, the tractor manufacturer. Flying Lockheed Lodestars and the amphibious Grumman Goose, among other aircraft, his passengers were almost always all directors and executives of the firm.
He stayed with Massey Harris until 1954, when he became chief pilot for Pittsburgh Plate and Glass, Canada. There, he flew everything from a DC-3 to a keenly anticipated DH-125 jet. "I asked him what the new jet was like," his son recalled. "He thought for a moment and replied, 'John, It's better than sex.' " Pittsburgh Plate and Glass cut back on its corporate jet fleet in the recession of 1981, after which Mr. VINES freelanced as a corporate pilot.
In retirement, he owned a couple of sailboats and was an active sailor until a couple of years ago. Although he was a methodical man when it came to flying and sailing, he had a whimsical side otherwise - he had a storehouse of hundreds of jokes in his memory, and was always telling funny stories.
Frank William VINES was born on February 18, 1921, in Toronto. He died at Oakville, Ontario, on May 25, 2007, of emphysema, although he gave up smoking 30 years ago. He was 86. He is survived by his wife Helen and his son John.
