BAKER, Francis Gerard " Frank" (1950-2007)
Passed away one year ago today in his 57th year. Prayer of Saint Francis of Assissi Lord, make me an instrument of your peace; Where there is hatred, let me sow love; Where there is injury, pardon; Where there is doubt, faith; Where there is despair, hope; Where there is darkness, light; And where there is sadness, joy. O divine master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. In our thoughts and prayer, sadly missed but never forgotten love Marilyn; children Lisa (Kevin) MISSELBROOK; Frank (Kimberly) BAKER and grandchildren Braden and Martina.

WRIGHT, Alexander Gordon (1911-2007)
Canadian educator, athlete, government administrator, naval officer, camper, author and leader of youth, died in Beeton at age 96 on Thursday, November 15, with his wife and two sons by his side. He had just been read the newspaper report that his passionate cause of protecting the Sir Frederick Banting Homestead was achieved by local legislation passed 3 nights before. He leaves his beloved wife of 68 years, Ruth, and two sons, Alec and John, and four grandchildren, Grace, Adam, Wesley and Jonathan, and three great-grandchildren, Brianna, A.J. and Evan, and 6 nieces, Eleanor, Anne, Barbara, Victoria, Lois, Joan, and four nephews, Ken, Bill, James and Gordon. He was pre-deceased by daughter Carol Anne, sister Laurabelle and brother Frank. Dean of the clan and witty host of annual reunions, Gord will be sorely missed. His university yearbook states his football name as 'Flash Gordon' and his academic motto: 'Facta non verba'. Both proved true for the next 70 years. There will a celebration Memorial on Saturday, January 19, 2008, at his branch, Alliston Legion, 111 Dufferin Street South, from 2: 00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. All are invited to attend. Eldest of three children of Annie and James, this farm boy from Kippen, Ontario, was a track and field star athlete who was the first Canadian to use the Western Roll. Doing post-graduate research he won the rare University of Toronto 'Bronze T' for being a member of 3 championship teams in different sports: football, gymnastics and wrestling. He was Canadian Champion in Wrestling and did a double major (Chemistry and Physics) during the Depression, working his way through school. Doing post-grad research he admired the work of Banting, discoverer of insulin. In Schumacher High School, teacher Gord started coaching sports and pioneered community evening classes in high schools in Ontario. Gord married the professor's daughter, Ruth BAKER of Guelph. They later raised their 3 children in Lorne Park on a large property with many gardens and travelled and camped. Decorated as a World War 2 convoy Encryption Officer in the Royal Canadian Navy Volunteer Reserve, Gord also taught unarmed combat to troops going to the front and developed a program for literacy of enlisted men. After World War 2, Gord served with the Dept. of Veterans Affairs, demobilising troops and re-training them for jobs in a changed society. From 1947-62 he was Director of Physical and Health Education for Ontario where he pioneered leadership education camps for youth: Ontario Athletic Leadership Camp at Couchiching for athletes and Ontario Camp Leadership Centre at Bark Lake for campers. He co-founded Ontario Federation of Secondary School Athletics and was President of Can. Association of Health, Physical Education and Recreation. Then he became Canada's first Director of Fitness and Amateur Sport in Ottawa. Under a new Minister Gord resigned and returned to teaching high school: Vice-Principal at Banting Memorial High School in Alliston, birthplace of his old hero, Sir Frederick Banting. Gord moved the family there in 1963 and he and Ruth became major contributors to the area. He became a popular Principal, retiring in 1974 with many Ontario Scholars and champion athletes as his legacy. Using his international contacts, Gord had stick-handled businesses and politicians into creating the nationally respected outdoor multi-sport fields and amphitheatre beside the high school. It was later dedicated as the G.A. Wright Playing Fields. Gord co-founded the Alliston Potato Festival and the Sir Frederick Banting Educational Committee. The thrust of the latter was to establish a forum for educating the public and diabetics about the disease and its management, and to establish a camp for juvenile diabetics for them to learn and help one another. Gord won many local and international awards, the latest being Ontario's Senior Achievement, 2006, and Museum on the Boyne's Wall of Fame, 2006. Previously he won Queen's Jubilee Medal, Rotary's Paul Harris Fellow, Lion's Citizen of the Year, South Simcoe Achievement and many others. He has been a popular writer of local articles and a regular supporter of the University of Guelph, where he and Ruth contributed the Baker-Wright Walkway through the research Arboretum. Secretary of Class of Ontario Agricultural College '33, which set a record of meeting annually for 70 years and set a precedent with the Year '33 Bursary to worthy students, many of whom gratefully continued their studies and went on to major contributions to agriculture and science. Gord and class-mate, Doctor Bert 'Honey' MARTIN, led their class into researching and sponsoring several well-received books on leading professors at Ontario Agricultural College/University of Guelph. Ruth and Gord hosted many Guelph reunions at their winter home in Venice, Florida and many more at their Mansfield chalet. Gord at age 90 wrote Leadership - Beyond the Playing Field with journalist, Katherine MOOIJ of Beeton, a critically acclaimed guide to teaching youth to be leaders via athletics. Published by YorkWright Planning Associates Ltd., it is also available through Can. Association of Health, Physical Education and Recreation, the non-profit professional body. You are invited to view and add notes to Gord's new blog site: www.freewebs.com/gawright/. Thoughout his long and productive life, Gord led and served others, encouraging them to innovate and strive to be the very best they could. He and Ruth loved to listen to the successes of others, so many of whom they had helped. A model of service and humility to family and Friends alike, he leaves big shoes to fill. With a twinkle in his eye and a quip on his lip, Gord was always a typification of Olympian sculptor Tait McKenzie's 'Joy of Effort'. To continue the dream of helping others, donations in Gord's honour are encouraged to the Sir Frederick Banting Legacy Foundation, 2 John Avenue, Alliston, Ontario, L9R 1J8. Email foundation@banting.ca or view www.discoveryofinsulin.com. Thanks, Gord - you taught us much and gave us the spirit to try.

On May 8th, 2008, her 88th birthday, surrounded by family, passed away peacefully, at home. Nancy, treasured wife of Dick, for 64 rich and wonderful years, beloved mother and mother-in-law of Richard and Joan BOXER, Shelagh and Christopher TAILOR/TAYLOR and Jeffrey BOXER and Nancy FLANDERS. Adored grandmother of Sarah, John and Todd BOXER, and Ryan, Patrick and Jeffrey TAILOR/TAYLOR. Cherished sister of Gina LAMB (Reverend Bill LAMB) and predeceased by her sister Kathleen WOODS and her brother Graham BAKER.

Born in 1920, in Toronto, Nancy attended Bishop Strachan School, Cheltenham Ladies College (United Kingdom) and the University of Toronto (Pi Phi), where she majored in child studies. She taught briefly before joining the navy (Women's Royal Canadian Naval Service) and served on the east coast until the war ended and she returned home to Toronto. An example for all, Nancy lived life to the fullest. Warm, gracious, informed -- she always had a kind word to say about everyone. Thoughtful, charitable, forgiving -- she was a devout Christian as her church and faith played an important role in her life. Nancy always devoted her life to her family and Friends. For her efforts in supporting her community including the Garden Club of Toronto, the Royal Ontario Museum, the Toronto Hunt, the Order of St. Lazarus, and many other organizations, she was awarded the Queen's Jubilee Medal for public service in 1977.

SIRSLY, Claude Eugene
It is with deep sadness that Claude's family announces his sudden death on Thursday, May 8, 2008 as a result of complications from surgery. Claude was 59 years of age, and was predeceased by his parents, Joseph and Antoinette (FICHERA.) He leaves, in sorrow and bewilderment, his wife Christena (KEON,) his brother and sister-in-law, Tony and Carol-Ann (TETRAULT,) and his nieces, Francesca and Dominique. Claude was always close to his wife's family - his sister-in-law, Mary KEON and her partner Lewis McCALL his brothers-in-law, Jim KEON and his wife Kathleen (BAKTIS) and David KEON and his wife Jane (BLOOMER.) He enjoyed following the progress of his nieces and nephews by marriage: Jody and Holly KEON; David KEON Jr., his wife Linda and their children Kaitlyn and D.J.; Anne Marie and Jim NEMETT and their children, Laura and Liam; Kathleen and Joe ZOLDOS, and their son Michael Tim and Sheila KEON and their sons, Patrick and Benjamen. Claude was passionate about everything he undertook, but particularly focused his attention on the three 'C's': cooking - he was an exceptional cook and enjoyed entertaining Friends and family construction - he had a talent for creating solutions to complicated problems in the apartment and at the cottage in Magog; and Christena - he advised her on her career and life choices throughout their Friendship of 39 years and their marriage of 32 years. One day, we will be able to make sense of losing this insightful, kind and considerate husband and friend. We will keep the faith until that day. There will be visitation at the Centre Funeraire Cote-desNeiges, 4525 chemin de la Cote-des-Neiges, 1-888-3426565 on Wednesday, May 14, 2008 from 17: 00 to 21:00. The funeral will take place on Thursday, May 15, 2008 at 10: 30 at St. Patrick's Basilica, 460 Boulevard Rene-Levesque West. Should you wish, donations in Claude's memory may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.
