LINDSAY, Doctor William Kerr, O.Ont., M.D., B.Sc. (Med.,) M.S., F.R.C.S.C., F.A.C.S.
(3 September 1920-5 February 2008)
Compassionate and caring to everyone he met, Bill LINDSAY passed away peacefully in his 88th year in Toronto. Dearly loved by his wife of 63 years, Peggy (FRANCES,) his children William (Patty,) Barbara (Norm HOTSON,) Katherine (John RILEY) and Anne (John WEYMAN,) and his grandchildren, Jennifer COLLARD (John,) Melissa and James LINDSAY, Brett (Daisy), Kai and Tyler HOTSON, Reed and Julia RILEY, and Tosh, Jesse and Luke WEYMAN. The eldest of five, he was predeceased by his brother Rod and will be remembered with love by his brothers Keith and Barrie and his sister Helen. Bill was born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia. His parents were born near Lochwinnoch and left the Ottawa Valley on the afternoon of their wedding in 1919 on a one-way rail ticket to Vancouver. His father operated the Vancouver Tugboat Company and, by age 12, Bill was working part-time on the tugboats up and down the coast.
An outstanding doctor, educator and researcher, Doctor Bill LINDSAY spent most of his professional life in Toronto as head of the Division of Plastic Surgery at the Hospital for Sick Children. With skilled surgeon's hands, he helped more than 18,000 patients born with cleft lips and palates and congenital deformities of the hand, as well as accident and burn victims. His medical research focused on the healing of flexor tendons in hands, and he authored 126 medical publications. Bill was Professor, Division of Plastic Surgery at the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto for 21 years. The many plastic surgeons who studied with him honoured him by establishing the W.K. Lindsay Club and the annual Lindsay-Thomson Symposium in Paediatric Plastic Surgery. He served in many hospital and academic roles, including President of both the Canadian Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Association of Plastic Surgeons.
Starting in 1990, Bill coordinated Canadian International Development Agency's Canada-China Burn Centre Plastic Surgery Linkage Program, through which he became Honourary head of the Gansu Provincial People's Hospital in Langzhou City. In retirement, he served as medical trustee and advisor to the R.S. McLaughlin and J.P. Bickell foundations. Internationally and in Canada, Bill was widely recognized and, in 2003, was specially pleased to join the Order of Ontario.
For more than 50 years, Bill and Peggy's farm in the hills of Mono has been their beloved retreat. Together, they turned blowing sand into productive land, planting trees, creating ponds and protecting the headwaters and forests, while raising his Angus cattle. His family and many young colleagues joined him for tree-planting week-ends each spring, and with many hands and shovels, many acres were restored. Bill's love of outdoor life was shared with his children and grandchildren
farming, fishing, skiing, gardening, horsemanship and beekeeping were learned at his side. Bill was at his farm regularly until the month before his death.
His family would like to extend sincere thanks to all the caregivers who helped Bill remain active and at home these past two years, and to the staff at the Toronto Western Hospital who cared for him the last three weeks. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Plastic Surgery and Burns Research Fund, c/o Dr. C. Forrest, Suite 5430, Hospital for Sick Children, 555 University Avenue, Toronto M5G 1X8. A service celebrating Bill's life will be held at Timothy Eaton Memorial Church in Toronto on Thursday, February 21 at 2 p.m. There will be a spring interment at Relessey Cemetery in Mono.

COLLINS--In memory of our son Brent COLLINS, August 10, 1968 - January 20, 1989.
It is a deep mystery
This matter of life and death.
That the same person
Who brought us a thousand joys
Can one day have us shedding a thousand tears.
So suddenly sometimes
That we grope blindly for words left unspoken
And for the hug we needed to give
To say good bye.
And we wonder
How this thread that holds us all to life
Can be so thin and fragile.
Until one day, we find the courage to accept
That the living aren't meant to understand death,
Only to celebrate life
And to remember that the only real death
Is forgetting.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all the families who are grieving the
loss of their loved one. "Time" has a way of encouraging us to build our
lives again and celebrate the precious gift of life.
In loving remembrance. Mom and Dad, Pam, Phil, Nathan, Carter, Craig, Melissa, Alicia, Mason, Tamara.

You will always be with me.

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.

KEELER, Helen Margaret
Mother, writer, editor, educator, marathon runner, dog walker, francophile. Born April 21, 1947, in Lebanon, Pa. Died June 28, 2007, in Toronto of cancer, aged 60.
By Blayne COLLINS and Bernard KELLY, Page L8
'Missing you already," Helen wrote to a friend who had just left on holiday. It was typical of her to say what she felt immediately, without waiting for a "suitable" interval.
Helen had a pointed attitude toward time, whether in the form of criss-crossing deadlines, the long (but not long enough) remission from breast cancer, the unpredictable tenses of a foreign language, the rapidly mounting ages of her two children, the just-as-rapid growth of their pup, Louis, or her own scarcely mentioned birthday, the last, the 60th.
Perhaps this awareness came from being the youngest, by far, of five siblings. She would not let time pass her by that easily again.
When she was 5, her parents, Thomas and Margaret KEELER, moved the family to Washington, D.C., where she spent her childhood. In 1967, she came to Toronto, earning an honours B.A. in English and anthropology from Saint Michael's College at the University of Toronto.
In 1977, Helen became an editor with Maclean Hunter, working for the next decade at The Financial Post Magazine and its offshoot, Moneywise. During the seven years following the birth of her first child, she freelanced.
From 1994 to 2000, she was a senior editor at Canadian Living. Then she took up freelancing again, writing in a style both humorous and sympathetic on topics such as parenting, pets, health, psychology, business and home renovation. At the time of her death, she was the managing editor of Today's Parent Toronto.
Helen was a nurturer. She showed loving concern not only for her children, Laura and Paul, but also for her Friends. Kind, considerate and unselfish, she was never anything but her own person: wry, skeptical, a little profane, defiant when necessary, unusually tenacious, outwardly gentle but inwardly strong. Her laugh was even stronger; she would sometimes apologize for its shocking suddenness.
Helen began running in earnest about six years ago, and with great pride completed the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington in October, 2004. She also took part in several half-marathons and a number of 10-kilometre runs.
That Helen herself should be missed, when deadlines or children or her pet or travel prevented her from attending a meeting, seemed to surprise her.
The final days went by too quickly for those Friends making plans to help. She, however, felt differently and spoke of not wanting to linger. She died as she had lived, then, in her own time.
Missing you already, Helen.
Blayne COLLINS and Bernard KELLY are Helen's Friends.

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.
