Soccer star and world champion was 'an unbelievable iron man'
A gifted and natural athlete, he was best known as the Canadian who won ABC television's Superstars contest three consecutive times between 1977 and 1979. After that, the network changed the rules
By Peter MALLETT, Page S9
He was a gifted Canadian soccer player who was banned from competing in America's most popular made-for-television athletic competition because he was just too good.
After Brian (Budgie) BUDD won his third consecutive ABC Wide World of Sports' Superstars competition between 1977 and 1979, the notion of a relative unknown competitor from the obscure sport of soccer defeating top major-league and Olympic athletes was too much for network executives to fathom. His success forced them to invoke the infamous "Brian Budd rule" that banned any competitor from the event after they had won it three times.
"He stood out above other athletes," said Canadian Football League Hall of Fame quarterback Tony Gabriel, who had lost to Mr. BUDD in the competition. "That just gave him an aura. Someone who kind of raised the bar and the standard for those competitions." During the 1978 contest, Mr. BUDD topped U.S. Olympic pole-vaulting champion Bob Seagren and Cleveland Browns star Greg Pruitt.
The son of an Atlantic Canadian couple who first settled in Toronto before moving to Delta, British Columbia, Brian was the second of four children and the only boy. His father was a strict disciplinarian and they did not enjoy a happy relationship. One of his favourite childhood stories was how his father, Leighton, introduced him to swimming.
"He [Brian] used to always tell this story about how his father taught him to swim," said his friend Bob COWAN, a former CFRB broadcaster. "Brian would say his father took him down to the docks in the harbour section of Vancouver and threw him right into the deep section of the water. With a pause, Brian would then say: 'The swimming part wasn't hard; it was getting out of the sack he had put me in that was difficult.' "
In any event, he took up competitive swimming, then switched to figure skating. In high school, he turned to athletics and set many records in track and field. He only took to the soccer field in his late teens when a touring all-star team had heard about his abilities as a natural athlete and enlisted him for a tour of Vancouver Island.
After that, he enrolled at the University of British Columbia. In 1973, an incident at a house party - a stranger slashed his throat - nearly ended everything. While he made a full recovery, he was left with a distinctive gravelly voice. He later credited the near-death experience with endowing him with an appreciation for every moment life had to offer.
A year later, he won a Canadian Interuniversity Sport Championship with the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds, graduated with a bachelor's degree in physical education and went professional by joining the Vancouver Whitecaps. Club president and former teammate Bob Lenarduzzi marvelled at Mr. BUDD's first appearance. "He came into the tryout, and I don't think I'm being nasty in suggesting this, but he didn't get by on skill," he said. "It is incredible. I have heard some accounts saying he didn't even play soccer until he was in his late teens - that in itself is incredible. He was a guy who had unbelievable fitness and drive."
At 6 foot 1 and 180 pounds, he was confident, aggressive, outgoing and enthusiastic. Not surprisingly, he was a valuable member of the Canadian national soccer team, playing a total of seven games and scoring two goals. His most satisfying shot occurred against the United States in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, in December, 1976. The game was a qualifying match to settle which of the teams would play in the 1978 World Cup and it was crucial that Canada win. As luck would have it, he scored the winning goal. It was a moment he cherished and talked about for the rest of his life.
Whitecaps owner Herb Capozzi once bet a friend $1,000 that Mr. BUDD could not run to the top of a 30-storey building in less than eight minutes. Mr. BUDD said he could do it in less than three minutes and insisted that, if he won, he and 15 Friends get a free dinner. He ran up the 30 flights in 2 minutes 39 seconds.
By 1978, he had been transferred to the Colorado Caribous, only to be bought by the Toronto Blizzard after two games.
All told, he played seven seasons as a striker in the now-defunct North American Soccer League with the Whitecaps, Caribous, Toronto Metros-Croatia, Blizzard and Houston Hurricane. He also played in the Major Indoor Soccer League with the Cleveland Force and Baltimore Blast. He had 13 goals and 11 assists in 80 North American Soccer League games and 31 goals and six assists in 36 Major Indoor Soccer League games.
Along the way, Mr. BUDD also crossed the Atlantic to test the British soccer waters and earned a place on the player roster for Ayr United, a Scottish team.
It was in the middle of his soccer career that Mr. BUDD entered ABC's Superstars competition. The idea was to have the world's top athletes from different sports compete against one another in a kind of decathlon. While requirements varied from year to year, entrants generally took part in many different events, including a 100-metre sprint, 800-metre foot race, weightlifting, rowing, cycling, swimming, a gymnastic segment and an obstacle course. They were forbidden from entering in their particular specialty event.
By all accounts, Mr. Pruitt, Mr. Seagren and the others did not see Mr. BUDD coming. He swept the field before him and set records in swimming, the 800 metres, gymnastics and other events, and came away with a pocketful of cash. It is estimated that he won $200,000 in the three years before ABC decided he was unbeatable and rewrote the rules.
The decision came as a something of a shock. As a slender, unimposing underdog from Canada he had taken on the world's best (and better known) athletes and beaten them again and again. Privately, he was said to have entertained suspicions that ABC wanted him off the show because he was relatively unknown to U.S. television viewers. To the network's credit, Kyle Rote, Jr. and Anne Henning - two subsequent winners of Superstars contests - lost their eligibility after they had each won three times.
His success turned him into something of a Canadian celebrity. During an interview with Peter Gzowski on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation-television, he shared his methodology in winning the chin-up portion of the event. "I guess it comes from being knocked down [on the soccer field] and helping yourself up again is how I got any arm strength," he said with a laugh. "Looking at Greg Pruitt - they couldn't get their arms in my pants, their arms were so big."
His techniques were anything but orthodox. Gordon SWEETZER, his Toronto Blizzard roommate, described his friend practising on a beach during a training camp in Portugal. "He used an old rowboat for conditioning and a child's playground at the hotel to do chin-ups. I asked him: Shouldn't you be doing this in a gym? But that was just his style; he just attacked everything with so much zeal. He was an unbelievable iron man."
Although born in Toronto, Mr. SWEETZER had spent most of his life in Britain and was new to Canadian customs when he returned to play for Blizzard in the mid-seventies. As both of them were young and unattached, Mr. BUDD took him under his wing. According to Globe reporter Allan ABEL, Mr. SWEETZER's problem was too much attention from female soccer fans. They had, he said, "tried to get in as much mischief as possible."
Apparently, Mr. BUDD had asked: "What's the difference between Canadian and English girls?"
"For one thing," Mr. SWEETZER replied, "There's more of 'em over here. It's the density of the population."
"How about the quality?"
"That's not too bad either."
"When you tell them you're a Blizzard, do they fall all over you?"
"Well, they recognize you," Mr. SWEETZER replied. "But I wouldn't say that they fall. That's a bit of a myth. Let's just say that they're there, and they want to get to know you. There is some work involved."
After his career on the soccer field ended in 1980, Mr. BUDD co-authored a fitness book, The Executive Guide to Fitness (1982), then entered the business world, first as a community relations director for the Blizzard and later with Molson, Labatt and Kittling Ridge Estate Wines and Spirits.
Later, he worked as a colour commentator for North American Soccer League broadcasts on Global Television and CHIN radio. He also became a regular on cable television's TheScore and the channel's English Premier League and Major League Soccer broadcasts. His success arose from his natural charisma and from a scorching sense of humour. He kept a joke journal to use at speaking engagements and during television broadcasts. After all, it had worked on the soccer field. Once, during a game against Pele and the league's star-studded New York Cosmos, the Brazilian legend congratulated him afterward: "You may not be the best soccer player I have ever played against, but you definitely are the funniest."
He soon learned that a well-placed joke would help close a deal at Labatt or for sizing up a crucial play during a soccer broadcast.
"Sometimes, his sense of humour went too far because he always seemed to test the limit of what was acceptable," said Mr. COWAN, the former CFRB broadcaster.
Once during a wedding ceremony, Mr. BUDD decided it would be fitting to wear a kilt. During the reception, and after downing a few drinks, he approached the grandmother of the bride and somehow got the notion it would be funny to pull the kilt up and over her head. Needless to say, it didn't go over well.
His charity work, however, was appreciated. Whatever organization needed his services, he would be there at the drop of a hat, said Mr. COWAN. He once flew to Jamaica as part of an effort with the Toronto Police Service to help disadvantaged children.
His charity work allowed him to forge Friendships with the likes of hockey legends Lanny McDonald and Doug Gilmour, football commentator John Madden, the cast of SCTV and the rock band The Good Brothers. He became particularly close to SCTV John Candy.
Robert Iarusci, a former national teammate of Mr. BUDD and a co-worker at Labatt, recalled a 1993 charity golf tournament in which they joined a foursome with Mr. Candy and fellow SCTV star Eugene Levy. "John Candy had just returned from filming the movie Uncle Buck and, on the golf course, BUDD and Candy just exchanged jabs all afternoon. It was hysterical. Every time John went to take a swing at the ball, BUDD would say something to distract him - it was a great afternoon and the party went well on into the early morning hours."
For all that, he said Mr. BUDD shattered the stereotype of the "dumb jock" when he underwent an aptitude test before joining Labatt in 1996. While most applicants took three hours to complete the test, he breezed through it in about half an hour, much to the astonishment of executives.
"He was always about 10 minutes ahead thinking of what the outcome of an event or situation we would have to deal with," said his wife, Brenda. "His brain just worked so fast and his thought process was just so much quicker, he just came up with solutions to complex problems."
Mr. BUDD maintained a busy pace. Over the years, he devised such things as electronic media-oriented fitness programs, took computer courses, played soccer for an amateur team, took up skydiving and scuba diving, as well as squash. He also swam 1.5 kilometres a day and talked a mile a minute. "I never sleep," he told The Globe and Mail in 1985. "I was never particularly gifted as a soccer player but was always under severe pressure because I won the Superstars. Really, I'm built like an olive on sticks."
Brian BUDD was born on April 8, 1952, in Toronto. He died in hospital on June 11, 2008, after suffering a heart attack at home. He was 56. He is survived by his wife, Brenda; son Riley, 8; and daughter Bridgette, 6. He also leaves his mother, Bertha, and sisters Barbara, Sonya and Lisa.
On June 14, a rowdy, sellout crowd observed a moment of silence at the 20,000-seat BMO Field in Toronto before a game between Toronto FC and Colorado Rapids.

Academic became a religious triple threat
Denied the voice she sought in Catholicism, she converted, then mentored hundreds of other women
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S8
Joanne McWILLIAM felt she was outside her beloved church, looking in. Faced with the lifelong prospect of being denied the voice and role she sought in Roman Catholicism, she found an alternate route. She became an Anglican and a priest.
A religious pioneer and predictor of change who mentored and encouraged hundreds of women in academia and the priesthood, Dr. McWILLIAM tallied several milestones: She was the first woman to earn a doctorate in theology from the University of Toronto's Saint Michael's College; the first ordained woman to receive tenure on the divinity faculty at U of T's Trinity College; and the first Canadian woman elected president of the American Theological Society.
She was recalled as a warm, self-effacing woman, but serious about many things: teaching, her church and advancing the cause of women, both in her field and beyond. Her son, Gonzalo DUARTE, recalled a T-shirt his mother bought him in 1977 bearing the words: "Men of quality are not threatened by women for equality." It was a message she carried and heeded throughout her life.
Dr. McWILLIAM was a kind of religious triple threat. As a trained philosopher, theologian and priest, she had a wide knowledge of secular thought, of Christianity (especially its early development) and of what it takes to shepherd a congregation - all within a liberal framework. "She understood deep traditions very thoroughly, yet could advance new developments without fear," said Canon Alyson BARNETT- COWAN, a friend and colleague.
A tolerant woman, she had a healthy respect for those of other denominations and faiths. "She didn't have a proselytizing bone in her body," said her son, Sean DEWART. " She was not remotely judgmental."
An internationally acknowledged expert on the theology of St. Augustine, Dr. McWILLIAM's specialty was patristic studies, which focuses on the early church fathers. She wrote or co-wrote dozens of books, articles and book chapters on Augustine, feminist theology and Christology, the study of Jesus's divine nature.
For 15 years, she was a single mother and pursued her academic credentials while raising four children, who recognize today that she was a tireless advocate for women's rights who established herself as a major figure in a largely male domain, yet devoted years to studying the harsh patriarchy of the early Christian church.
Dr. McWILLIAM was raised in an ecumenical environment. She was the only child born to an electrical engineer who'd been a sapper during the First World War - a Catholic who had known discrimination in Toronto - and a stay-at-home mother who converted to Catholicism from the Presbyterian church. It was an arrangement that was deemed controversial in its day.
Their daughter graduated in philosophy and history from the University of Toronto in 1951, earning the Cardinal Mercier Medal in Philosophy, and completed a master's degree in the subject in 1953.
The next year, she married Leslie DEWART, who was born in Spain and raised in Cuba. His medical studies were interrupted by a strike, so in the early 1940s, at 19, he came to Canada to join the Royal Canadian Air Force. He flew reconnaissance missions over the North Atlantic and went on to teach philosophy at Saint Michael's College. The couple divorced in 1972.
During the mid-1950s, Doctor McWILLIAM held a variety of jobs. She taught high school and lectured in philosophy at the University of Detroit. For a brief time, she was a reporter at the Toronto Star, covering "magistrate's court," but grew disenchanted. "She felt she was too much the observer and not enough of a participant," said daughter Elizabeth DEWART.
She returned to school and earned a second master's degree, this one in theology, from Saint Michael's College in 1966, followed two years later with a doctorate in theology, also from Saint Michael's. "She was an unbelievably hard worker," said Ms. DEWART.
Over the ensuing years, she held several teaching positions at Saint Michael's College, the Toronto School of Theology and the University of Toronto's religious studies department, which she chaired for two terms.
But something was gnawing at her. She never voiced an outright disappointment in the Catholic Church, but "she felt things needed to change… that she didn't have a voice," said one of her former doctoral students, Ellen LEONARD of the Sisters of Saint_Joseph.
She found that voice in the Anglican Church of Canada, whose synod on whether to ordain women she addressed in 1975 as a Catholic theologian. The following year, in November, the church ordained its first female priest.
"I remember her telling me that she was leaving the [Catholic] church," Ms. DEWART recalled. "It was so solemn. She didn't see the opportunity to become a priest. That was a huge decision for her."
Dr. McWILLIAM became a deacon in the Anglican Church in 1987, the year she married Peter SLATER, an Anglican priest and fellow theologian, and was ordained a priest the next year, at the age of 60. For one thing, she felt it was important for female students to have a female priest on the faculty.
While continuing to teach, transferring from the Catholic Saint Michael's College to the divinity faculty at Trinity College, Canada's oldest Anglican theological school, she served as honorary assistant at Toronto's Christ Church Deer Park. In 1997, she was appointed by Michael Peers, then leader of the Anglican Church of Canada, to a high-level review of central religious issues. The first Primate's Theological Commission, which lasted until 2003, produced three workbooks to assist the church on "fundamental theological questions."
She addressed such matters as the nature of God. The Christian tradition of labelling the members of the Trinity - the Father, the son and the Holy Spirit - as "persons," was "on the whole a bad decision," she wrote (noting that Augustine and many others have said so) "because when we use it, we cannot but think of human persons, and attribute the characteristics of human personhood to God."
The Trinity "is a mystery and cannot be explained in any rational way."
An optimist, she felt the global Anglican communion will weather its spasm over homosexuality and avoid schism. She cited examples of other threats to unity - slavery and the place of women - that failed to split the church.
Dr. McWILLIAM taught for five years at the Episcopal Church's General Theology Seminary in New York, the first woman to hold a chair in dogmatic theology. Back in Canada, she contributed to the decision in 2001 to provide joint recognition to Anglican-Lutheran ordinations in this country.
Health conscious before it was fashionable, she ingested plain yogurt and chicken livers for breakfast. But a regular tipple of sherry was never turned aside. Minutes after doctors informed her that her cancer was untreatable, she asked her daughter Leslie to drop by for a glass, reasoning that "there's no point allowing life to go completely to the dogs."
Still with sherry, just a few weeks before her death, she insisted that her son Sean pour from an older bottle. When he asked why he shouldn't open the fine new one he had just bought, she replied, "I'm saving it!"
She died a week before the worldwide Anglican church voted to allow women to serve as bishops.
Joanne Elizabeth McWILLIAM was born in Toronto on December 10, 1928, and died there of cancer, nine years after the first diagnosis, on July 1, 2008. She was 79. She leaves husband C. Peter SLATER, children Leslie GIRODAY, Elizabeth DEWART, Sean DEWART and Gonzalo DUARTE, and 12 grandchildren.

KENNARD, L. June (née CLEMES)
Lorna June (CLEMES) KENNARD was born in Toronto July 19, 1928 to Lorna Edith (WARREN) (1906.01.29-1934.08.18) and Jack Carnegie CLEMES (1906.02.17-1981.10.06.) June died peacefully surrounded by many loved ones on July 14, 2008 in Kingston, Ontario of complications following gall bladder surgery.
June was pre-deceased by her husband of almost 58 years, Cedric G.H. KENNARD (1924.07.25-2008.02.18) last February. She is survived by her children Christopher A. (Kit), Deborah L., Katherine L., and Margaret (Peggy) J. KENNARD; her 'adopted' children Lucie RONDEAU, Pamela COWAN; sisters Diana J. (CLEMES) LETT and Wendy J. (CLEMES) LITTLE.
June grew up in and around Toronto and was educated at Havergal College, Branksome Hall, Hatfield Hall, McMaster University and Wellesley Nursing School.
In 1944, she was one of 26 Canadians to win the RCHA award for her bravery and heroic action, when, at just over 12 years of age in August 1940, June rescued Harry PASSMORE from drowning by diving through the weeds of Lake Skugog and pulling him out of the water.
June moved from Montreal to Bath, Ontario in 1992 where she enjoyed supporting and participating in a variety of local community causes and activities also serving on the board of the Fairfield-Gutzeit Society.
A reception is planned in Bath at the Fairfield-Gutzeit House for Tuesday, July 22 from 6 to 9 p.m. A memorial service in the Montreal area will be held later on October 25 for both June and Cedric, their 58th wedding anniversary. Cedric's memorial service was postponed due to June's illness.
To obtain memorial service details or to forward condolences and reflections, please email Kit KENNARD at kitkennard@excite.com. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of June to the Montreal Metropolitan Independent Living Resource Centre (1355 Blvd. René Lévesque West, Studio 3, Montréal, Québec, H3G 1T3 (514) 288-1177 email: information@crvamm.org) would be appreciated by the family.

COWARD, Alfred Reginald
Mississauga, Ontario - Alfred Reginald COWARD, died peacefully on June 10, 2008, at the Credit Valley Hospital after a brief illness. Alf was born in Sydney, Nova Scotia to Arthur and Lillian COWARD. Being exposed to music and piano at an early age ignited a fire within and ultimately, music became his life's passion. Alf was initially drawn to medicine and attended St. Francis Xavier, Dalhousie Universities, and The University to Toronto to pursue pre-med training. Ultimately his heart drew him back to music, where he worked on perfecting jazz piano playing and composing for the balance of his life. By 1950 Alf had played as a member of a many jazz orchestras, and shortly thereafter struck out on his own leading the Alf Coward Band. In 1955 Canadian Broadcasting Corporation aired the first variety show in the Maritimes on Television; 'The Alf Coward Show', featuring the Alf Coward Band. Meanwhile, during this time, what began as a two week 'gig' at Georges Spaghetti House eventually extended to 7 years due to a growing fan base. Alf lived (Mississauga) and worked in the Toronto area for the rest of his life. In the late 1960's he married and had two boys. He spent the 1970's onward teaching classical and jazz piano as well as voice from his Mississauga studio. He continued to perform locally in television commercials, and movies. Surviving are his sons, Brent and Shem COWARD as well as his granddaughter Peyton. The memorial services will be held at 2: 00 p.m. Friday, June 13 at Bloor Street United Church with the Reverend Martha TER KUILE officiating. Memorials may be made on behalf of Alfred COWARD to The Canadian Cancer Society, www.cancer.ca or 1-888-939-3333
