TAIT/TAITE/TATE, William C. " Bill"
Passed away April 10, 2008 peacefully in his sleep, surrounded by loving family after a mercifully quick battle with cancer. Bill is missed and loved by his wife, Sylvia (née MURPHY) and children Bruce TAIT/TAITE/TATE (Kim), Deborah BURGESS, Michael TEMPLETON (Nancy,) Brad TEMPLETON (Kathryn) and Ty TEMPLETON (Keiren,) along with grandchildren, Jesse, Curtis, Kellam, Cale, Jordan, Taylor, Sean, Will, Katie and Marika. Born May 12, 1925 in Regina, Bill served in the Royal Canadian Air Force during World War 2 and then received a Bachelor of Commerce from Queen's University and a Chartered Accountant degree. In 1955 he joined fledgling Garrett Manufacturing Limited in Toronto, a division of the growing Garrett aerospace company in the U.S.A. Four years later he moved to the Los Angeles headquarters, but his rising star brought him back to Toronto to run Garrett Manufacturing Limited. He built it from a small operation to a major manufacturer with over 1,400 employees, producing top quality equipment for the aviation and aerospace industries. If you've flown on a major commercial airliner, Bill's systems, among many roles, helped control the air you breathed for a comfortable flight. He rose to become president of Garrett Canada, as Garrett Manufacturing Limited was renamed after being acquired by Fortune 50 corporation Allied-Signal. Bill served on the board of Allied-Signal Canada. After retiring he cofounded Tulmar, a leading vendor of aviation life support supplies based in Hawkesbury. Bill also worked in international affairs, twice serving as chairman of the Canadian North Atlantic Treaty Organization Industrial Advisory Group, and also as chairman of the Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers Assoc. of Canada. Out of the office, Bill was passionate about golf, and had been recruited to play hockey for the Detroit Red Wings before the war intervened. Bill was predeceased by his first wife Daphne (née SCOTT) and brother Doctor Robert G. 'Bob' TAIT/TAITE/TATE. A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, April 15 at 12: 00 p.m. at Turner and Porter Funeral Home, 2180 Hurontario Street, Mississauga, Ontario. Family, Friends and colleagues are welcome to come celebrate and remember a life well lived. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Bill's name to the Canadian Cancer society.

BURGESS, Prudence Elizabeth (née PYKE)
At home in Ottawa at age 66, on Friday May 9th, 2008. She leaves her spouse, Andre MILLAR, daughters Serena and Fiona and granddaughter Kayla in San Francisco, sisters Bridget and Angela, brother James, their spouses Brad and Debbie, as well as sisters-in-law Diana and Mychele. She also leaves numerous close Friends and other relatives in California, Florida, and elsewhere in the U.S.A. and Canada. Born and raised in Hudson and Montreal, Quebec, she attended McGill University and moved to San Francisco and Marin County with her first husband, Theodore BURGESS, where they raised Serena and Fiona, and where Prudence worked as a real estate agent. They were surrounded by Friends and family who shared Prue's and Theodore's passion for good food and wine, the arts, and travel to Europe to savour its cuisine and its history. She was especially fond of Stinson Beach, where she and Theodore liked to entertain. Subsequent to the death of Theodore in 1992, Prudence married Andre and lived in Ottawa, Ontario, until her death. This new phase of her life saw the making of additional Friends, and work for Statistics Canada where she interviewed a wide cross section of Canadian society. In the summer, there were frequent stays with Andre in Jones Falls, Ontario, at the Kenney family inn and, in the winter, on Casey Key in Florida, where her parents had had a winter home. Casey Key, its beaches and sunsets, and the Smetts family (Bonnie, Bob, Debbie) became another home for her. Diagnosed with cancer in 2000, Prudence was determined to beat it until 17 days prior to her death. Throughout this time she was kindly and assiduously attended by the doctors Dent (whose care added 4 years to her life), Wong (always there in "stretcher bay" for her), Robillard, Drodge, Laurie, Aldridge -- nurses -- Carmen (kindly present at all times of need), Carol (devoted to her comfort unto the last moments), Beppi, Debbie, Andrea, Fatima, Sue -- and many others at the Ottawa Regional Cancer Centre, and in her own home. With all of them, Prudence shared her optimism and her indomitable spirit to beat the odds. Her sparkling personality was larger than life. She was an amazing and wonderful woman, with immense sensitivity and great kindness. She was also wise, funny, willful and passionate, inspiring others to live life cheerfully, and with gusto. Her love touched all who knew her, be they family, Friends, professionals or those just met. Her warm embrace freely given was unforgettable, even as she lay dying. Andre's regret is not having been an even more supportive knight to this great lady. She was cremated in the Gatineau Hills near Ottawa, on May 12th, on a hillside not far from where they had both recently marked her 66th birthday. A gathering of Friends and relatives, to inter her ashes, will be held in Ottawa and in San Francisco, later this summer. Condolences and/or inquiries at www.mcgarryfamily.ca (613-233-1143)

BURGESS, Reverend Harold N., B.A., B.Div. (1915-2008)
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing on July 20, in hospital, of a very special man who met all of life's challenges in a positive way. He was a caring husband, father and grandfather who gave generously of his time and energy. In his ministry, he contributed greatly to society as he counselled, encouraged and comforted his parishioners. Harold played a pivotal role in the establishment of blood donor clinics in Ontario in the early '50s. He quickly became a regular blood donor himself and encouraged others to donate too. He was a pioneer in religious radio and television. In later years, he served on the religious advisory board at CTV. He will join his beloved wife of 61 years, V. Gwendolyn (2003, née BECKEL) and leaves behind his loving daughters, Joan VAN HOUTEN and Elizabeth SCHUERMANN and her husband John. Harold was a proud and cherished Grandpa to Kirsten VAN HOUTEN and Kristofor SCHUERMANN and his wife Elaine. He leaves his brothers Gordon (Laurel) and Doug. He is predeceased by his sister Kathryn. Harold was born in Giles, Ontario. He served the United Church for 44 years, with charges in Cressy, Oak Lake (Man.), Thomasburg, Athens (Ont.), Cornwall, Toronto and Etobicoke. Harold had a great wit and sense of humour. He spent many happy hours on curling rinks and golf courses. He thoroughly enjoyed performing marriage ceremonies and did so until the age of 92, first in his churches and then in the chapel at Mississauga City Hall. Harold was an avid reader, preferring a good mystery above all else. He will be greatly missed. Friends may call at the Turner and Porter 'Peel' Chapel 2, 180 Hurontario Street, Mississauga (Hwy 10 North of Queen Elizabeth Way) from 12 noon until the time of the service at 1 o'clock on Friday July 25, 2008. For those who wish donations may be made to Doctors Without Borders (MSF) Canada #402 - 720 Spadina Avenue, Toronto, Ontario M5S 2T9.
