ALLEY, Brenton Glanville
It is with great sadness we announce the death of Sidney resident, Brenton G. ALLEY. He passed away peacefully in Hospice at the Saanich Peninsula Hospital on Monday March 31, 2008, surrounded by his loving family. The third son of Brenton Pascoe and Norma Lindsay ALLEY, he was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba October 16, 1922. He grew up in Toronto where he graduated from Upper Canada College. He joined the army in 1941 and after World War 2, he married Inez Jean POOLE, of Edmonton, Alberta, who he met while she was in nursing training in Montreal. They moved to the West Coast and Brent began working for the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce in Vancouver. He was transferred to Victoria where he and his family lived for eleven years, and then back to Vancouver where he continued to work for the bank. During his free time, he loved to golf at the Capilano Golf Club, to ski with his family at Whistler, and to sail near Horseshoe Bay. When he retired in 1982, he and his wife, Inez, left West Vancouver and moved to Deep Cove where Brent fulfilled a dream of designing their house, which was then built on Chalet Road. They recently moved to Sidney, as he said, 'exchanging sunsets in the country for sunrises in town'. A man of many interests and possessing an insatiable curiosity, Brent travelled extensively with his wife Inez, while he could, and he participated in community and educational opportunities as time allowed. He loved to garden and enjoyed going to the theatre, and especially loved being involved with his large extended family. We remember him as a principled, generous man with a marvellous sense of humour that remained even into his final days. The family is very grateful for the wonderful care he was given by the medical and nursing staff at both the Saanich Peninsula and the Royal Jubilee Hospitals. Brent was also appreciated for his volunteer work with the United Way in West Vancouver, and the British Columbia Cancer society in Sidney. He also enjoyed his involvement with the Friends of Dunsmuir Lodge, and being part of the SAGE Study Group. He is fondly remembered by his daughter Lindsay (Hogue) of California, son, Brent, of Vancouver, and son, Andrew, of Victoria; his 8 grandchildren and new great-grand_son; and his many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his brothers, Jack, of West Vancouver, and Patrick, of North Vancouver. A memorial service will be held on Thursday, April 17th at 2: 00 p.m. at the Saanich Peninsula Presbyterian Church, 9296 East Saanich Road, Sidney. A reception will follow in the church hall. In lieu of flowers, donations could be made to the charity of your choice or the Mt. Newton Centre Society, Private Family Fund.

Accidental mining engineer replaced his pickax with a pen
Told by his father to study mining, he became devoted to it and became publisher of The Northern Miner, where he suffered undeserved criticism during the Windfall scandal of 1964
By Gay ABBATE, Page S8
Toronto -- Maurice (Mort) BROWN was tricked into a career in mining. He had been accepted to study forestry at the University of Toronto - or so he thought. Unbeknownst to him, his father had changed the application form to mining engineering, which he thought would provide a better future. He didn't tell his son until five minutes before he was to hop on the train for the long trip south from his home in Port Arthur.
"I screamed and hollered and was in tears, but there was nothing I could do," recalled Mr. BROWN, whose career in mining spanned more than five decades, taking him from the mines of Northern Ontario to the office towers of downtown Toronto and beyond. In the process, he replaced the pickax with a pen, chronicling major developments in the mining industry and the people who mattered in it.
He quickly came to love everything about mining, becoming the industry's biggest booster. "He had great enthusiasm for all things mining and all the people in it," said Stan HAWKINS, a friend for more than 40 years.
Mr. BROWN's greatest legacy to the industry may be the creation of the Canadian Mining Hall of Fame, in 1988, to honour those who contribute to and promote mining. The United States had its own hall of fame, and Mr. BROWN was anxious to establish one in Canada. It took many years of perseverance in the face of skepticism, but he realized his dream. The hall is located in the mining building at the University of Toronto, and Mr. BROWN served as the hall's chairman for its first four years. The night he himself was inducted as a member in 1993, he described mining as a "dirty, nasty industry that demands hard work" - but he would do it all over again if he could.
The low point of his career took place decades earlier, at the time of the so-called Windfall scandal. On the day the scandal broke and he discovered that several people whom he had trusted had betrayed him, "his hair turned white literally overnight," said his daughter, Sandra PULEY. "He was devastated. It was a horrible, horrible time."
It was the summer of 1964, and Mr. BROWN, then an assistant editor at the weekly Northern Miner, wrote a favourable article about a potential discovery in a mine owned by Viola and George MacMILLAN, a couple he considered good Friends. The MacMILLANs had drilled holes on property near Timmins, Ontario, near a site where a rich lode of copper had been discovered by another company the previous year. Rumours of another lode drove the stock of Windfall Oil and Mines Ltd. from 56 cents to $5.70 in a matter of weeks. But while the company's value continued to rise, purely on speculation, the MacMILLANs refused to announce their test results. The bubble burst when they finally disclosed that there were no metal deposits on the site. Thousands of investors lost everything.
The Ontario government called a royal commission and Mr. BROWN, among others, was called to testify. He told the inquiry that his positive article was based in part on an interview with Ontario's minister of mines, George WARDROBE, who tried to shift the blame onto Mr. BROWN when he took the stand.
Mr. BROWN described his numerous unsuccessful attempts to get a straight answer about the test results from both the mines minister and Mrs. MacMILLAN, a leader in the mining industry. Mr. BROWN was accused of profiting from buying Windfall stock. He did make $4,471, but told the inquiry that he also lost $5,578 trading stocks in other MacMILLAN-owned companies. And there was no policy at The Northern Miner forbidding him from buying shares in companies on which the paper reported. "They expect us to use discretion. They would take a dim view of any heavy trading," he told the inquiry.
Maurice BROWN, known as Mort, was the fourth of six children to William and Georgia BROWN of Port Arthur, now Thunder Bay. William BROWN worked on ships and was on the Noronic, a tour ship that sailed the Great Lakes, when it caught fire in Toronto Harbour on September 17, 1949. One hundred and eighteen of the 525 passengers perished. William BROWN saved countless lives by spraying people with water so they could run through the flames to safety.
After graduating from university in 1938, Mort BROWN went to work as an engineer at a gold mine near Geraldton, north of Lake Superior. He worked at other facilities, eventually becoming a mine manager. A year after graduation, he married Margaret GREEN, a young woman he had met one summer when she was a teenager. In 1947, Mr. BROWN was hired as mining instructor at Lakehead Technical Institute in Thunder Bay to develop its mining curriculum.
He was still an undergraduate when his interest was first piqued by The Northern Miner. He became fascinated by a major find at the Little Long Lac gold mine in Geraldton, and spent hours reading accounts of it. His interest in the paper would forever change his career path.
In his final year at university, Mr. BROWN, as president of the university's mining and metallurgical society, invited one of the paper's writers to address the students. Mr. BROWN was so excited by the speaker that he informed him he intended to join the paper's editorial staff one day. While working after graduation, Mr. BROWN submitted many articles to the Miner, each one accompanied by a job request. He finally received the call in 1949 and moved his young family to Toronto, the paper's headquarters. He worked his way up to assistant editor and then, on his 65th birthday, was named editor. He became publisher in 1985 and publisher emeritus two years later, not retiring until his 80th birthday in 1992.
During his 43 years at the paper, Mr. BROWN visited every mine in Canada and many others around the world, including the United States, Finland, the Caribbean and South America. In August, 1973, during a trip to Costa Rica to visit an old gold mine, he became deathly ill with a lung infection. Upon his return to Toronto, doctors diagnosed histoplasmosis, an infection caused by fungi from bat dung. He was placed in an oxygen tent. "We almost lost him," said son Russell BROWN. With his lungs permanently damaged, he was given a pension. However, he returned to his job at the paper and never allowed the disability to get in his way, his son said.
What finally did slow him down, however, was the death of his wife in 1998. They had been married for 59 years.
Otherwise, Mr. BROWN was renowned for his enthusiasm for life, which occasionally went too far. "He was foolhardy and reckless at times," said his daughter. "He always went with his heart instead of his head. He went feet first into situations." Such as the time, in his 70s, when he climbed a tree with a running chainsaw. He fell and broke his arm. Or the time he went camping with a brand-new car, a new tent and new stove. He set up camp next to a dead tree, which he thought would make a good fire. He cut the tree and, of course, it fell on the stove, the tent and the car roof. There was also the time he went into the car wash with all the windows open. But he was always able to laugh at himself because he knew it was his own fault, said Nean ALLMAN, a former colleague and now co-ordinator of the Canadian Mining Hall of Fame.
Ms. ALLMAN has her own story. She arrived at work one Monday morning to find a brown bag on her desk. Inside was a headless duck Mr. BROWN had shot on his latest hunting trip. "I knew you liked a challenge. I thought you'd like to pluck it and cook it," he told her with a twinkle in his eye. She did as he suggested. It was a very tasty meal, she said.
Maurice (Mort) BROWN was born November 11, 1912, in Port Arthur (Thunder Bay), Ontario He died June 24, 2008, of cancer at Freeport Hospital in Kitchener, Ontario He was 95. He is survived by son Russell, daughter Sandra PULEY, three grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. He is also survived by brother Burton and sister Audrey.

COLLINS, Dudley Hamilton
Father, husband, gentleman, thoughtful friend to many. Born March 22, 1915, in Tumkur, India. Died March 17 in St. Catharines, Ontario, of heart failure, aged 92.
By Paul COLLINS, Page L6
I have never known another Dudley. I always thought my father's name had a bit of a high-class sound, which was quite ironic for a man whose life was characterized by humility.
Born in India, orphaned at birth, Dudley was raised until the age of 2 by Doctor Jessie ALLYN and her sister, Laura, both Baptist medical missionaries. They brought Dudley to Canada in 1917, where he was adopted by Rev. George COLLINS and his wife, Rebecca.
Dudley's early years were spent living in a number of small communities where his father served as a Baptist minister. About 1930, his family moved to London, Ontario Dudley left school after completing Grade 10 to help support his parents in their retirement years.
He grew up in a stern but loving, materially meagre, faith-based home that greatly influenced his view of life. These beliefs and values are reflected in his favourite religious songs, two of which he sang until his last days: Trust and Obey and Jesus Loves Me. These titles aptly describe both his motivation to serve others and his deep contentment with life.
From his days as a young man selling fabric and drapes, to six years as a car salesman (one of Ford's top five in Canada), to being honoured for his achievements selling insurance for London Life, Dudley's success was based on his reputation for integrity and service. One rainy evening he helped a family whose car had stalled. The man he helped offered him a new career as a salesman for London Life at the age of 41.
Dudley's motto was "at your service," which included annual calls to every client with Christmas and birthday greetings. With such attention to maintaining relationships, it is not surprising he sold many of the same folks drapes, then cars and, finally, life insurance.
In retirement, Dudley did not pursue traditional hobbies. With Marjorie, his wife and constant companion for 62 years, he served his church community and visited Friends who were sick or elderly. A few years ago, even as life became an ever-increasing challenge, he said, "Helping people is what I am in the world for."
Over the past 12 years, challenged cognitively by Alzheimer's disease, Dudley frequently expressed his awe of the natural world and the inventiveness of his fellow man. He never stopped smiling and displayed gratitude for everyone and everything that was done for him. Like many, I suspect, I admit that in my early years, as his only child, I did not fully appreciate the power and wisdom of his example. My goal will be to honour his legacy by providing service and support to others.
Paul COLLINS is Dudley's son.
