Stratford actor chose anonymity as a television voiceover specialist
After a stage and screen career, he found that commercials paid better. His work on food products was so lip-smackingly evocative that he came to be called 'succulent Franz'
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Victoria -- His was a familiar voice amid a cacophony of commercial pitches.
Franz RUSSELL's melodious pronouncements extolled the virtues of cars and credit cards, jeans and juice, milk and margarine, hamburgers and gasoline, pain remedies and Republican candidates.
For many years, he was the radio and television herald of Duracell batteries, offering basso profundo assurance that "You can't top the coppertop."
When he declared AT&T to be "the right choice," it was hard to disagree.
When he promised "hot, fresh, golden-brown, crispy chicken from your microwave," it was hard to doubt the tastiness of Shake 'n Bake.
His voice was warm, authoritative, trustworthy. Millions would recognize the tone, though he was unknown by sight. To maintain anonymity, he merely needed to keep his mouth shut.
Four Clio Awards were recognition from the advertising industry of his talents behind a microphone. He became a voiceover specialist after a stage and screen career in Toronto and Vancouver, including roles in top dramas, as well as some memorably inept Canadian television productions. In a field not known for rewarding the character actor or the bit player, Mr. RUSSELL earned a healthy income through his tireless schedule. "I approach acting as a business," he said in 1966.
He was a performer without formal training, launching an acting career from the humble beginnings of a high-school radio program in his hometown. His after-school work on High Time for Teen Time sparked a desire to perform on stage.
Born in Oshawa, Ontario, he first won notice in the Toronto newspapers as one of a "cast of little-known players" in a production of The Rise and Fall of Marvin Derwent at the Avon Theatre in Stratford, Ontario Mr. RUSSELL played a young man who lives in a theatre.
A children's theatre production of The Dandy Lion placed him in the role of Dalton the Daring, a sadistic lion tamer whose cruel antics the audience was encouraged to hiss. He had a secondary - and less villainous - role as a penguin.
Much in demand, Mr. RUSSELL appeared on stage in a production of The Glass Menagerie that offered public performances at Toronto high schools, and on television in the hour-long drama The Great Casa Loma Purchase on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Show of the Week. He also had a role in the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation series Seaway.
He found time in his schedule to attend the 1965 wedding of Toronto actor Bill Kemp to Lady Iris Mountbatten, a cousin of the Queen. Alas, the actress Lauren Bacall and her husband, Jason Robards, were unable to attend the ceremony as she was appearing on Broadway in Cactus Flower.
When not on stage or before the television cameras, Mr. RUSSELL was busy as an advertising pitchman. He appeared as a barman for O'Keefe breweries and as a milkman for Borden dairies. The actor had so many well-paying gigs that Globe theatre critic Herbert Whittaker profiled him in an article with the headline: An actor proves there are opportunities to make money in Canada. Mr. RUSSELL told the critic he expected to earn $20,000 in 1966, had an agent who collected 10 per cent of his earnings (except for stage work), and had more assignments than he could handle.
"Perhaps this burly, cheerful and energetic young actor is more versatile than many of his fellow actors," Mr. Whittaker wrote. "He may also be more businesslike, more competitive."
The 1960s offered theatrical possibilities away from the stage. In 1968, Mr. RUSSELL attended a house-wrecking party with artists and socialites in the tony Forest Hill neighbourhood of Toronto. An architect wished to have destroyed an 11-room building he had purchased. A Yorkville model in attendance described the soiree a "super-scene."
The following year, the actor helped raise funds to aid in the legal defence of the producers of the controversial play Futz, who faced a trial on obscenity charges.
In 1969, Mr. RUSSELL was cast in a Toronto-based situation comedy that producers hoped would be shown in daytime in Canada and in prime time on a U.S. television network. Starring Diane Nyland and Steve Weston as newlyweds Doug and Tracy Young, the show's scripts were based on a popular 1930s radio program, Easy Aces. Mr. RUSSELL played a brother-in-law. The Young Marrieds was billed as the first five-a-week serial sitcom in television history.
As it turned out, the show was rejected by all the American networks. Renamed The Trouble with Tracy, the Toronto Star described the production as "deep in trouble" before a single episode aired.
Plagued by a small budget, tired scripts, and a breakneck shooting schedule of seven shows in five days, The Trouble With Tracy came to be seen as the epitome of everything wrong about Canadian television.
Peter Kenter declared it to be the "worst Canadian show ever made" in his 2002 book television North. Five years ago, the Comedy Network announced a revival of the series, an outrageous unlikelihood that convinced a few critics before the move was revealed to be an April Fool's joke.
Mr. RUSSELL was cast in other television shows produced at the CFTO studios in Toronto, including The Waterville Gang, a children's puppet show set in an aquarium. He portrayed a town councillor in Barney Boomer and its Upside Town sequel, both filmed on location at Oakville, Ontario He also appeared as a panelist on the show What on Earth.
Other Canadian television credits include roles in Wojeck, The Beachcombers, Razzle DAzzle and Quentin Durgens, M.P.
On the big screen, Mr. RUSSELL portrayed a small-town businessman in Paperback Hero, a 1975 release filmed in Delisle, Saskatchewan., that The New York Times called "a simple but intriguing movie that says much if you are willing to listen."
Mr. RUSSELL befriended Robert Mitchum while working together on Agency, a 1980 movie produced by Robert Lantos, former Chief Executive Officer of Alliance Communications Corporation, that won three Genie Awards.
He won his first Clio Award for a 1975 radio spot for the British Columbia Government's Alcohol and Drug Commission. Other Clios were won for 1986 television commercials produced by the New York advertising agency Ogilvy and Mather for clients AT&T and Shake 'n Bake.
Perhaps because he so enjoyed food himself, Mr. RUSSELL's voice work on certain commercials was so lip-smackingly evocative that he came to be called "succulent Franz." He was versatile, too, a big man who voiced ads for vegetables not as the Jolly Green Giant but as his sidekick, the Little Green Sprout.
After working in Manhattan and Los Angeles, Mr. RUSSELL settled at Hilton head island, South Carolina, where he and his wife, Robin DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS, co-hosted a public-affairs radio program called Around the House. She had launched her radio career at station CHIC ("Where the girls are") in Brampton, Ontario
After a stage hiatus of more than two decades, he returned to the boards in Savannah, Georgia., in 1996 in Here's Love, an adaptation of Miracle on 34th Street. With his girth, jolly disposition and white beard, he was not surprised to be cast as Kris Kringle.
Mr. RUSSELL once told The Globe that he felt shame that he'd "never had any formal training in the business I've chosen.
"I've felt sort of awkward in social situations where people are rapping about how well so-and-so handled the theory in that part; and how so-and-so went to RADA [Royal Academy of Dramatic Art], and how somebody else went to this other theatre school, and I never went anywhere, you know."
Franz William RUSSELL was born May 31, 1937, at Oshawa, Ontario He died June 8, 2008, of heart failure at his home in Guyton, Georgia. He was 71. He leaves the former Robin DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS (née Marilyn ALLAN,) his wife of 39 years, as well as a daughter, step-son two granddaughters and a sister.

ALLANSON, John
Devoted husband, father, brother, uncle, friend, respected parts man, expert gardener, English gentleman, gentle man. Born May 7, 1917, in Elham, Kent, England. Died January 11 in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, of multiorgan failure, aged 90
By Anne L. WALSH and George ALLANSON, Page L8
Raised in the Garden of England, John credited his early life for his abiding interest in plants.
He tended one garden or another from the age of 7 and was tilling fields at 10. Family lore has it that he climbed a church wall to filch a young laburnum seedling to take home. His Mum planted it in the front yard, where it flourished until last year.
The eldest of seven siblings, John worked for the village butcher at 14, then later at the post office. At 18 he joined the Royal Air Force, and by 1937 was posted in the Middle East.
In 1941, John volunteered for the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan. This took him to Swift Current, Saskatchewan., and Fort Macleod, Alberta., where he helped set up pilot training schools. In August, 1942, he transferred to Debert, N.S.
At a squadron dance he met Ethel, his beloved wife. They married in 1943, and the next year John was posted home, with Ethel following.
On December 20, 1947, John and Ethel returned to Canada. He wholeheartedly adopted the country as his home. They raised their daughter and son here while remaining in close contact with John's family in England and Australia.
In Pictou County, Nova Scotia, John worked at service stations and gained a reputation for being knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. At home he enjoyed time with family, fixing radios, doing carpentry projects and caring for his many plants.
He brought attention to detail and inventiveness to all he did. In his garden it was common to see rows of retired Nova Scotia licence plates, two per tomato plant in a V shape, serving as shelters from late frost. He was active in the horticultural society, holding office, winning blue ribbons and sharing his expertise. In retirement he added camping and playing the organ to his enthusiasms.
John's patience and optimism were taxed by declining mobility and confusion in his last few years. Occasionally despondent over "being a bother," he grew quieter but rarely did his thoughtfulness or diplomacy leave him.
If he was disappointed at not having grandchildren he didn't complain; he welcomed those of a dear friend as his own. On his last day, despite laboured breathing and failing strength, John reached out an index finger for 16-month-old Mason to hold while Cassia, 5, looked on.
After, he inquired if we were leaving, though it was early.
"You'd like us to go Dad?"
"I think so." We tucked the covers around his shoulders. "I'll bid you good night then," he said.
We bid you good night, dear Dad.
Anne L. WALSH is John's daughter and George ALLANSON is his son.

Gone, dear one, gone forever,
How we miss your smiling face
But you left us to remember
None on earth can take your place.

How sweet the memory still,
But death has left a loneliness
The world can never fill.

Woman's actions save boy in crash
By John MINER, Mon., June 2, 2008
Seaforth -- In the last few seconds of her life, Ronalee ALLEN did what she had spent a lifetime doing -- trying to save a child.
ALLEN was killed Friday on Highway 4 in a crash with a truck north of Hensall.
Her family said they've been told by police she tried to avoid the truck, but was trapped by a guard rail. Still, her move to hit the guard rail kept her minivan from crashing into the truck full on, saving her one-year-old passenger from being killed with her.
"If they had hit head-on, the baby wouldn't have made it," said Ronalee's mother, Lorraine SAINT_JOHN.
The child remained in critical, but stable condition in a medically induced coma at London Health Sciences Centre yesterday.
Police have charged the driver of the truck with careless driving.
The day of the tragedy had started as one of jubilation for ALLEN.
Her eldest daughter, Breezey, had received a call from her mother with the news that the family would be able to adopt the child they had been caring for since September -- the child who was injured in Friday's fatal crash.
Ronalee, 42, then drove from their home in Seaforth to Exeter to tell her husband, Shawn, vice-principal at Exeter public school.
It was on the way home from delivering the news that ALLEN was killed.
"She always said she wanted to die fast and for a purpose and she did," said Breezey, 20.
Sitting around their kitchen table in Seaforth yesterday, her husband and four children emotionally remembered the mother who had taken in more than 150 kids -- many of them as foster kids and others who needed temporary shelter -- and rushed to help other people.
"She would say, 'If we don't do it, who will?' She lived her faith," said Shawn.
"Each child that moved into our house was not considered a visitor, not considered a guest or a foster child. They were considered part of our family."
She wasn't satisfied with helping only the people she could directly reach. The fridge in their home is still covered with the faces of children she had sponsored in foreign countries.
"It wasn't a tithe or an obligation -- she genuinely cared about them," said her son, Josiah, 17.
Word of ALLEN's death prompted dozens of tributes on the social networking website Facebook, with many remembering the direct woman with a big heart.
"She was in a lot of people's lives whether you liked it or not," said her mother.
Breezey said while "People always say that someone comes in and out of your life and you forget them… you can't forget my mom because she kind of hits you like a train. She is a very blunt person."
Ronalee is also survived by son Makaylie, 15, and daughter, Olivia, Shawn said it took him years to appreciate his wife's special sense for helping people.
"It's like in hockey where there are fabulous players who can go into the game, survey the situation, understand the whole setup and flow and go and get a goal.
"She could see a person, a situation and know exactly what the future could be. She would go in and work on making the preferred future happen," he said.
She also had an infectious sense of humour that drew people to her, both young and old, her family said. Her campfire at Fair Havens Christian campground near Orillia, where she worked summers, was always a popular spot.
"All of my Friends would go there and they would be hanging out with my mom," said Breezey.
The family has rented the Seaforth Community Centre for a memorial service Wednesday at 2 p.m. People are advised not to wear formal attire, but to be in their pyjamas, something ALLEN wore everywhere, including when she dropped her kids off at school.
That's what their mother wanted -- she warned them she'd haunt them if they attended her funeral in black, her children said.
Shawn said his wife of 18 years wasn't a soft-spoken women.
"You knew how she felt, you knew what she thought. Everything she did was from the heart, making things right."

ALLEN, Ronalee Louise
It is with great sadness, that the family of Ronalee Louise ALLEN announces that on Friday, May 30, 2008 Ronalee was pulled into the loving arms of her heavenly Father. At 42 years young, Ronalee was a strong, devoted mother, God-sent wife, beautiful daughter, precious friend, and the center of everything she was involved in. People flocked to her to share life's pain and tribulations. Ronalee knew what to say to sooth and bring resolution; she had intuition and people skills beyond comprehension. She was well known for her stubbornness, smart remarks, caring attitude, and selfless, sacrificial love. She gave her all for those she loved. Ronalee is, and always will be, loved, missed and forever remembered by her enamoured husband, Shawn, devoted mother, Lorraine SAINT_JOHN, stunning and beautiful daughters, Breezey, 20, Makaylie, 15, and Olivia, 12, and her gracious, fun-loving sons, Josiah, 17, and Eli, 13 months. Her whole life was about laughing while spending time with her family and summers with Friends at Fair Havens, reading, napping in her blanket, and drinking Shawn's red wine with Friends. Many thanks to all who have provided care and support through this difficult time. The jubilant celebration of Ronalee's life will be held at the Seaforth District Community Center, 122 Duke St, Seaforth on Wednesday June 4, at 2: 00 p.m. It is requested that all attending wear their favourite pair of pyjamas in honour of Ronalee. Please, no black. All children are welcome. If so desired, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Fair Havens Bible Conference, Compassion of Canada, or an education fund for her children.

BOYD, Richard Norman, M.D., F.R.C.S.
(June 5, 1944-March 29, 2008)
It is with overwhelming grief that the family of Doctor Richard BOYD announces his death at age 63 on Saturday, March 29, 2008 after a heart attack and a stroke. Rick took his last breath held lovingly by his family and close Friends Doctor Frank DEMARCO and Doctor Tom ELSDON. Rick deeply loved, and was loved by, his wife of nearly 40 years, Jane (JOHNSTON,) and cherished his sons David Richard and Andrew Macartney. Rick adored his beautiful 'daughters' Kristen (SKINNER) and Lindsay (GRAY/GREY.) He was predeceased by his loving parents Doctor Norman and Barbara BOYD, and father-in-law Robert 'Mac' JOHNSTON. He will be profoundly missed by his mother-in-law Olive JOHNSTON. Left to mourn are his sisters Judy MANNING, Mary HOPKINS (Ed DAVEY) and Heather MUNRO (Bob,) his aunt Dorothy SEARLE, brother and sister-in-laws Dick and Jane JOHNSTON, cousins, nieces and nephews, and a legion of Friends. He was predeceased by his loyal Bichon Frises, Bijoux and Beaumont. Doctor BOYD graduated from the University Of Western Ontario Medical School in 1968. He obtained his Specialist Fellowship in Urology from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1976, and has since then practiced Urological Surgery in Windsor. He previously served as Chief of Surgery, and was currently head of Urology, at the Windsor Regional Hospital. He was one of the founders of the prostate cancer Bracytherapy programme at the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre. In recent years he has also served the community as a Provincial Coroner for Essex County. Rick was a member of the Alpha Kappa Kappa medical fraternity. An athlete, Rick ran 27 marathons around the world with a personal best of 2: 48 in Chicago. He curled in the Ontario Medical Association bonspiels, and was an avid golfer and scholar of golf history. He was a member of the Donald Ross Society. He was currently the very proud President of Essex Golf and Country Club. Rick was a skilled clinician and diagnostician, and a gentle man who exhibited great kindness to his patients. He had twinkling blue eyes, a mischievous smile and a wonderfully wicked sense of humour. Rick's prize orchids are especially beautiful this spring. Our family thanks the medical community, both doctors and nurses, who supported Rick in area hospitals over the years, and especially Ruth Anne PIETTE and Staci LEMIEUX who loyally kept his office organized in spite of him. We thank the doctors and nurses at Windsor Regional and Hotel Dieu Grace Hospitals who so valiantly tried to save him: Doctor Rob WOODALL, Doctor Anthony GLANZ, Doctor Hash PATEL, Doctor Natalie MALUS and Doctor Balraj JHAWAR, who over five difficult days demonstrated extraordinary skill, as well as great compassion and love to our family. Thank you to Carol DERBYSHIRE and Steve BRENNAN from the Hospice of Windsor; Pat BEST, Paula DEEHAN- SCHMIDT and Chaplain Joyce JARDIN from Hotel Dieu Grace Hospital; Kim VAN ALLEN and Bishop Bob BENNETT from All Saints' Church; and our community for enveloping our family in love and prayers as we ran with Rick on his last marathon. Always one to put others first, and ever the healer, Rick has made four gifts of life. His two corneas will go to enhance sight, and, ironically the "perfect urologist kidneys" will give life and hope to two patients. In order to give back to our community which Rick so loved, we ask that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to organizations that were so a part of his life: Hospice of Windsor for care of men with prostate cancer; All Saints' Anglican Church; Windsor Regional Hospital for a Cystoscopy suite; Windsor Regional Cancer Centre for the Prostate Brachytherapy Program; and Essex Golf and Country Club for a croquet pitch and garden in his name. Visiting will be held at the Walter D. Kelly Funeral Home and Cremation Centre, 1969 Wyandotte St. E. On Monday and Tuesday from 1-4 p.m. and 5-8 p.m. The Funeral Service will be held at All Saints' Anglican Church, 330 City Hall Square on Wednesday, April 2, 2008 at 11: 00 a.m. Cremation to follow. Online condolences and audio messages may be left at www.mem.com
