CLARKE--In memory of Michael Thomas CLARKE, 1965-2004
I am the eagle, I live in high country
In rocky cathedrals that reach to the sky
I am the hawk and there's blood on my feathers
But time is still turning they soon will be dry
And all of those who see me, all who believe in me
Share in the freedom I feel when I fly.
Come dance with the west wind and touch on the mountain tops
Sail o'er the canyons and up to the stars
And reach for the heavens and hope for the future
And all that we can be and not what we are.
Words and music by John Denver and Mike Taylor
Love the family

He served in the Second World War and became a general in the militia
He signed up less than 10 years after the First World War, fought in Italy and Holland and then returned to the militia - all the while holding a good job with Quaker Oats
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to the Globe and Mail, Page S8
Ottawa -- Serving as a Canadian infantry officer during the Second World War, Max CLARKE saw his fair share of fighting during the Italian and Northwest European campaigns. He served as the second in command of an infantry company, and as a staff officer he got the opportunity of seeing how operations were planned.
Mr. CLARKE's wartime experiences, acquired the hard way during almost two years of active service, proved valuable during the postwar period as he reached high rank in Canada's army reserve. In fact, he originally started in the militia less than 10 years after the end of the First World War, when budgets were meagre and Canada's first line of defence was provided by 75,000 dedicated reservists. Known then as now as "twice the citizen," many were decorated veterans who eventually came to see a second war with Germany as highly probable, despite the naive hopes of others.
Landing in Italy in October, 1943, as a staff officer with the 11th Canadian Infantry Brigade (11 CIB,) Mr. CLARKE quickly honed his trade under fire from a tenacious and well-trained German army. There was no scope for mistakes, since soldiers' lives depended on the right decision being made at the right time. It took time, though. Everyone was green, including Mr. CLARKE.
One day, a company of infantrymen from the 1st Battalion, Irish Regiment of Canada, was probing enemy positions. Unfortunately, the company commander's radio malfunctioned and he lost contact with his headquarters. No one knew what had happened. Were they all dead? In the confusion of battle, it would be easy to assume the worst, which is what Mr. CLARKE did.
One of his duties was to report the casualties his brigade suffered every day - how many were killed, wounded or missing. Since he hadn't received any information on that company, he duly reported its 126 soldiers as missing. Naturally, this caused a stir at the headquarters of 1st Canadian Corps. How could an entire company go missing? A patrol, maybe, but not a company, surely.
The following day, Mr. CLARKE was highly relieved to hear that the ghost company was safe and sound. The lesson learned? "Max learned never to report something unless he was absolutely sure of the facts," said his son, retired lieutenant-colonel Henry CLARKE.
In May, 1944, Mr. CLARKE's past caught up with him when his brigade got a new commander. He'd crossed swords with him more than a year earlier and the new boss quickly made it obvious he had a long memory. "Your work around here is no good," Mr. CLARKE was told. "Max looked at his acting commander, and at his own yellow-tinged skin and said, "Very good sir. I have the jaundice," and signed himself out of the 11th Brigade staff and into hospital," Henry CLARKE wrote in a biography of his father titled The Military Memoirs of a Nuisance Kid.
After recovering, Mr. CLARKE was posted to the 1st Battalion, Hastings and Prince Edward Regiment. After just three months as the second-in-command of Baker Company, Mr. CLARKE found himself back on the staff again, this time with the headquarters of 1 Canadian Infantry Brigade. Many regimental soldiers viewed staff officers with disdain, accusing them of shirking the fighting. The truth, though, is that infantrymen need staff officers, if only so they can order the beans, bullets and boots urgently required by soldiers in the field.
One day, the brigade commander ordered Mr. CLARKE to make a reconnaissance of the next town. The word was that the Germans had pulled out but he wanted to make sure. "Max grabbed a driver and scout car and headed up the road. Not too far along he passed a number of soldiers from the 48th Highlanders of Canada crawling carefully along the ditch towards the still distant town. They didn't know for sure if the Germans had gone, but they weren't taking chances either. Max waved cheerfully, and carried on," his son wrote. Sure enough, the enemy had left town the night before, with the result that he was one of the first Canadian soldiers to liberate the port of Rimini on the northern Adriatic Sea.
While that turned out well, Mr. CLARKE suffered some narrow escapes. One day, he was checking a bridge to see whether it was intact when the Germans fired some mortar rounds at him. Hearing their distinctive whine, Mr. CLARKE took to his heels and hit the dirt. The first round exploded so close to him that his raincoat was blown over his head.
Another time, he escaped certain death by a few inches. He was sitting in an abandoned factory on radio watch near Faenza, in northern Italy, when a German 88 mm shell "struck flush on the end of the wall, exploding backwards. Had it come a few inches to one side, it would have exploded in the room where Max was working. A few inches to the other side, and it would have destroyed the signals van and its crew. No one was injured, but the crew and Max set a record in moving to the rear of the building," wrote Henry CLARKE.
Max CLARKE grew up in Hamilton during the First World War. Living near an army camp full of soldiers training to go overseas, the young Max was thrilled by the shouts and sounds of army life. One soldier took the time to talk to him and his Friends. "Whether Trooper COLLINS survived the war Max would never know, but from the time spent with this soldier came an interest in soldiering that would last a lifetime," his son wrote.
The third generation of a military family, Mr. CLARKE joined the Peterborough Rangers in 1927. Promotion was slow and the pay was just a dollar a day, which went to the regimental fund anyway, but he didn't care. He was, at last, a soldier.
By 1937, Mr. CLARKE, whose day job was at Quaker Oats, was a lieutenant with the newly formed Prince of Wales Rangers. Two years later, he volunteered for active service when Canada declared war on Germany on September 10, 1939. The next year, Mr. CLARKE transferred to the Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Highlanders, of Cornwall, Ontario
More than three long years of training in Canada and Britain followed before Mr. CLARKE landed in Italy. His war ended in May, 1945, near Apeldoorn, in the Netherlands. Decades later, his son asked him whether it had all been worth it. "It's hard to know how to assess it. For me, I was lucky to get home in one piece. But then, it was a great experience; the greatest experience of my life. But [for] so many people who lost their lives or parts of them, it would be a completely different story. It was worth it because we [won]. If we hadn't, it would have been much worse."
Demobilized in October, 1945, he returned to his job at Quaker Oats and to the militia. He knew it was important that Canada maintain its military preparedness so he rejoined the Prince of Wales Rangers. The unit later converted to an anti-aircraft role and Mr. CLARKE served as its commanding officer from 1948 to From 1961 to 1965, Mr. CLARKE (by then a brigadier-general) commanded No. 13 Militia Group, which oversaw reserve units from Oshawa to Brockville. He retired from the army in 1968. From 1970 to 1975, he was honorary colonel of the Hastings and Prince Edward Regiment.
After retiring from Quaker Oats in 1971 - he'd been production manager overseeing every plant across Canada - he worked for the Federal Business Development Bank. After that, he and his wife, Madeline, travelled all over the world. Devoting time to photography and painting, he also played golf with his grand_sons.
Known as an even-tempered man, Mr. CLARKE never raised his voice, "but you could tell when you had overstepped the line because [his] voice became very even. One didn't trifle with the brigadier, believe me," said his son. "For all that, he was understanding and oh, so, patient."
Maxwell Edwin CLARKE was born September 3, 1912, in Peterborough, Ontario He died there of natural causes on November 14, 2007. He was 95. He is survived by his wife, Madeline, daughter Maxine, and sons Arthur and Henry. He also leaves seven grandchildren.

CLARKE, John Cambrey " Jack"
Peacefully at Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital on the morning of February 24th, 2008, in his 93rd year. Predeceased by his cherished wife of over 60 years Jeanne Gabrielle CLARKE (née CARBONNEAU.) Beloved father of Joan Alice BOURNE and her husband Ken, Peter John CLARKE and his wife Carole, Mary Lou TAILOR/TAYLOR and her husband Harry. Dearest grandfather of Paul, Peter and his wife Jennifer, Tara and her husband Joseph, Stephanie, Jacqueline and Danielle and great-grandfather to Connor, Blake and Andrea. Predeceased by his first son David and his first grand_son Jeffrey. Jack was the youngest and last survivor of four siblings and had a truly full and blessed life. Together with his two brothers Lorne and Jim carried on the wholesale produce business started by his father Samuel Wilmot CLARKE under the name Clarke's Produce Limited. The company carried on business under Samuel in the greater Toronto area and was subsequently expanded by his sons to all of southern Ontario and Muskoka. After nearly 90 years in business the company was sold to Everist Brothers in 1985 and Jack continued with Everist until he was 81 years of age. He was the ultimate master salesman. His associates would say he could sell sand to a desert nomad. He was the consummate businessman and entrepreneur and in addition to the wholesale produce business he was a real estate developer, financier and manufacturer. Towards the end of his business career at eighty years of age he had the respect of customers and of every notable chef in the City of Toronto. Jack's classic line when asked how he felt was "I feel like a million". Jack's philosophy of life was unbridled optimism with acts of kindness and love of his fellow man. His membership in the Toronto Board of Trade stood for over fifty years. His enthusiasm for all aspects of the business world contributed to his zeal for life. Jack will be sadly missed by his family and all who were fortunate to know him. A service of remembrance will be held on Saturday March 1st at 11: 45 a.m. at the Chapel of The Old Mill Inn, 21 Old Mill Road, Toronto.

PROBYN, Alfred Stephen (1951-2008)
A. (Alfred) Stephen PROBYN died in Toronto on Sunday, March 30, 2008, at age 56 in the spirit in which he lived: 'Onwards and upwards!' One of North America's foremost authorities on 'green energy' and the independent power industry, Stephen is best known as a financier, entrepreneur, regulatory expert and advisor to governments on energy and environmental policy. Convinced of the certainty of Climate Change and the need for action, he was inspired by an unswerving belief in the possibility of political, economic and technological solutions to most human problems -- expecting the same 'best efforts' and goodwill that he always contributed himself. A man of extraordinary intellect, drive and wide-ranging talents coupled to great warmth, wit and self-deprecating personal charm, Stephen PROBYN inspired lifelong Friendships and admiration equally in men and women, and excelled in academe, government, journalism, broadcasting, industry associations and not-for-profit organizations on both sides of the Atlantic. Born in Pembroke, Ontario to a British father, Major A. (Alfred) John PROBYN (retired,) and his Canadian bride, the late Calista Helen PROBYN (née CLARKE,) Stephen grew up on Army bases in British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, West Germany and Ontario. Summers of his youth were most often spent at the Clarke family farm near Naramata in B.C.'s Okanagan Valley. In later life, he began transforming the farm's elderly orchards into vineyards with a view to a sun-filled retirement of sailing the lake, drinking excellent wine and writing the books he planned in a place he loved. Stephen's other love affair was with London and the company of exceptional Friends there, starting in his graduation year at the London School of Economics which earned an Honours B.A. from Queen's University in 1973. The M. Phil. begun at London School of Economics was then postponed to join the Conservative Research Department in London where the 23 year-old Canadian advised the new Leader of the Opposition, Margaret Thatcher, on energy policy. As he told Lady Thatcher not long ago of their joint beginnings: 'We were changing the world.' Returning home in 1976, Stephen continued his work in energy policy at the Progressive Conservative Research Office in Ottawa and then as an advisor to the Premier of Nova Scotia (1978-84). During the Constitutional patriation debates in 1981, he had a brief but exhilarating stint lobbying the British Government and Parliament on behalf of Nova Scotia's case for the rights of the Provinces and Canada's Aboriginal peoples. In 1982-83, Stephen attended Harvard University, earning a Master's of Public Administration at the John F. Kennedy School of Government with a thesis on the ethical, environmental and regulatory challenges posed by the brand-new science of genetic engineering and the foundation of a 'biotech' industry. He then turned the thesis into a sixpart television documentary, The Life Revolution (1989), co-produced by TVOntario and England's Channel 4, which gained global distribution and the recognition of U.S. and United Kingdom awards. In Ottawa again in 1984-86, Stephen acted as Senior Policy Advisor to the Hon. Pat Carney, then Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources, for the dismantling of Canada's National Energy Program and the launch of new federal energy initiatives by the Mulroney Government. Then, he left government and moved to Toronto to begin his work in international capital markets at the former Wood Gundy Inc. In 1987, Stephen PROBYN founded the group of private companies where he was soon joined by his wife and business partner, Doctor Barbara EASTMAN, and their great friend, the late R.W. (Herb) Harmer, former head of Bechtel Canada. Stephen's strategic aim was to help make 'green' industry economically successful by specializing in project finance for energy and environmental infrastructure internationally, and investing in and operating new 'clean power' projects across Canada. Under Stephen's leadership as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer until his death, The Probyn Group™ has arranged debt and equity financing of independent power in Canada, the U.S., the United Kingdom the Caribbean and Eastern Europe and launched renewable energy companies on the Toronto Stock Exchange and the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange, with a total value of some $3.5 billion. Stephen re-entered political life for the 1998 Federal Election, to run as the Conservative Party of Canada candidate for Toronto Centre-Rosedale, relishing the race regardless of the Liberal Party victory. Given more time, his fascination with the democratic process and public policy development would no doubt have drawn him into politics again. Meanwhile, Stephen was proud to accept an appointment to federal office as Chairman of Sustainable Development Technology Canada, made jointly by the Ministers of Natural Resources and the Environment in October 2007. Among many other offices and associations, Stephen served as President of the Association of Power Producers of Ontario (formerly, Independent Power Producers Society of Ontario) from 1993-95; as a member of the Electricity Market Design Committee appointed by the Ontario Government in 1998; and as an advisor to the G8 Nations Taskforce on Renewable Energy appointed in 2000. He was the founding Chairman and a director of the Canadian Association of Income Funds from 2003-2007. Since 2000, he was also a director of United Corporations Limited. He served as President of the Couchiching Institute on Public Affairs in 1994-96 and has long been an active member of the congregation of Grace Church on-the-Hill. He was a member of the Toronto Club and the Royal Canadian Yacht Club. Stephen took great joy in having his wife Barbara and loving sons Hugh, John and Max at his side last Sunday. He is also survived by daughter Lucy and granddaughter Brangwyn in Montreal; sisters Professor Elspeth PROBYN in Sydney, Australia, and Jane PROBYN, brother-in-law Nick DINNAGE and nephew Joseph in London, United Kingdom and his father John and stepmother Jill PROBYN in Herefordshire, United Kingdom Visiting is welcome at Morley Bedford Funeral Services, 159 Eglinton Avenue West, Toronto, on Friday, April 4th between 5: 00 and 7:00 p.m. and on Saturday, April 5th between 2: 00 and 4:00 p.m. The Funeral Service will be held in Toronto at Grace Church on-theHill, 300 Lonsdale Road, on Monday, April 7th at 3: 00 p.m. Friends and colleagues are invited to a reception to follow at The Royal Canadian Yacht Club, 141 St. George Street, from 5: 00-8:00 p.m. No flowers, please.

PLUMPTRE, Beryl Alyce (née ROUCH,) O.C.
With her family beside her, Beryl died peacefully in her own home as she wished on Friday, April 4, 2008, nine months shy of her 100th birthday. Articulate, sociable and elegant to the end, she was predeceased by her beloved husband Wynne, with whom she shared a varied and fascinating life of public and community service, combined with a strong sense of family, a love of travel and cultural pursuits, and a flair for entertaining second to none.
Born in 1908 in Melbourne, Australia, Beryl graduated from the Presbyterian Ladies College. Shortly after launching her career with the Bank of New South Wales, she won a scholarship to Cambridge University where she pursued graduate studies in economics with John Maynard Keynes. It was at Cambridge that she met Wynne who, having fixed his sights on her, had to sail to Australia to ensure she followed through on marriage plans. She was a devoted partner throughout his distinguished career, working by his side in posts at the University of Toronto, the Canadian Embassy in Washington, North Atlantic Treaty Organization in Paris, the Department of Finance in Ottawa and the University of Toronto at Scarborough, where she and Wynne presided over the flowering of the College during his tenure as its first full-time Principal.
Unfazed by the fact that women in the professions were still uncommon, she established her own credentials as an economist, working with agencies such as the Wartime Prices and Trade Board, the Tariff Board and the Royal Commission on Coastal Trading. She also became a fearsome consumer advocate, serving as National President of the Consumers Association of Canada from 1961 to 1966. She played a determining role in the establishment of a new federal department responsible for consumer affairs -- an effective but short-lived voice for Canadian consumers that subsequent governments soon muffled by burying it deep within the bureaucracy.
She also spoke up for consumer interest as a member of the now-defunct Economic Council of Canada. Then, in 1973, she was appointed to head the Food Prices Review Board, where she insisted that she would report not to the government, but directly to the people of Canada. With her no-nonsense attitude and independent spirit, she earned the respect and gratitude of Canadians across the country by speaking up for their interests and "telling it like it is," without regard for bureaucratic inertia or efforts at ministerial interference. This appointment was followed by another as Vice-Chair of the Anti-Inflation Board, from which she resigned to care for Wynne prior to his death in 1977.
Not content with retirement, she took up arms against forces threatening to destroy the character of the village of Rockcliffe Park by getting elected Reeve and serving as a member of the Regional Council of Ottawa-Carleton. Beryl also served on several corporate boards, including Dominion Stores and Canada Life, and as chair of various non-profit organizations, including the Vanier Institute of the Family and the Kidney Foundation of Canada.
An incomparable hostess, avid gardener and bird lover, she leaves behind her adored and caring children, Judith and Tim, along with their spouses, Alex WEDDERSPOON and Barbara LASKIN. A proud grandmother to Caroline and her husband David CLARKE of Vancouver, Michael WEDDERSPOON and his wife Marisa of Edinburgh, and Bora and Genny PLUMPTRE of Ottawa, she took enormous pleasure in their accomplishments, many of which she aided and abetted. She was a delighted great-grandmother to Zachary, India, Scarlett, Sylvie and Layla. Her loss is deeply felt by her devoted caregiver, Tess TAPECERIA, who was a great help in her last years, by her nephew Peter ROUCH and his wife Anne in Australia, and by many loyal Friends and former colleagues.
Her family expresses deep appreciation to the wonderful Doctor Frances KILBERTUS, her colleagues at the Elizabeth Bruyère Health Centre, to the Community Care Access Centre, and to caregivers from St. Elizabeth Health Care for the compassionate and professional care they provided to Beryl in her latter days.
A memorial service will take place at St. Bartholomew's Anglican Church, 125 MacKay Street, Ottawa, on Wednesday, April 9 at 2 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Elizabeth Bruyère Health Centre (SCO Health Service Foundation, 613-562-6319) or the Kidney Foundation of Canada would be appreciated.

Graeme TYM's life was touched by both serendipity and significant challenges.
He began life fortunate his father had a job in local government, which meant the family was relatively financially secure during the 1920s and 1930s.
Graeme's luck changed, however, in 1940 when an incendiary bomb landed in his backyard during the German Blitzkrieg on London. While he was attempting to pour a bucket of sand over it, the bomb exploded, blinding him in one eye at the age of 19.
Graeme's strong personality and determination were forged during his long and painful recovery in hospital. In spite of his disability, he served as an electrician in the Royal Air Force for the rest of the Second World War.
Soon after his recovery, fortune again touched Graeme when he met Ena SMALL at a dance. They married in 1942 and remained devoted to each other for the next 65 years. They had four children: Jane, Geoffrey, Peter and Diane.
After the war, Graeme and Ena decided to move to Canada. Graeme obtained a job at Burlington Steel (later Slater Steel) in Hamilton, where he remained for the next 25 years, retiring as production manager at age 54.
Graeme and Ena made a life that revolved around family and Friends. He always made time to take his family on camping trips and Sunday picnics. He was also an avid sailor and delighted in taking his children, and later the grandchildren, sailing on Lake Ontario and in the Florida Keys.
Graeme possessed a colourful and fascinating personality; he could be strong and opinionated but also shy and reticent. He held opinions that could sometimes appear inflexible and antiquated, but such shortcomings were balanced by an overwhelming generosity and altruism toward Friends and family.
Many years ago, when one of his grand_sons was suffering through a "dark night of the soul," Graeme sent him a card of encouragement and support. When his grand_son opened the card, a small, folded piece of paper fell to the floor. On it was typed Invictus, William Ernest Henley's poem:
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate
I am the captain of my soul.
During the last year of his life, Graeme suffered a series of small strokes. Until the end, he retained his sharp wit and sense of humour, and bore his failing health with stoicism.
The roles he most cherished, and for which he will be best remembered, were those of husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend.
John W. CLARKE, Jr. is Graeme's grand_son.
