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.

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.

Toronto surgeon 'changed the face of pediatric plastic surgery forever'
Gifted doctor helped 18,000 patients, mostly children with cleft palates and congenital deformities. He made so many volunteer trips to China that a local hospital named him its honorary head
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Toronto -- William LINDSAY was so devoted to correcting cleft palates that he once performed the procedure on a horse. It was 1965, the patient was a year-old thoroughbred that couldn't eat or nurse properly, and Doctor LINDSAY teamed up with a group of veterinarians from Toronto's Woodbine Race Track who had experience in putting horses under general anesthetic. By this time, Doctor LINDSAY had already acquired a reputation as a gifted plastic surgeon who specialized in cleft palates and other deformities. Special oversized instruments were created for the operation by the Hospital for Sick Children's medical engineering department.
The disorder was repaired and the patient recovered, but she never did race. And in an unusual but perhaps poetic turn of events, Doctor LINDSAY's son, Bill, went on to become a veterinarian specializing in equine surgery (and whose sole regret was that he never got to operate alongside his father).
Dr. LINDSAY, who headed the plastic surgery division at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children from 1958 to 1986 and taught the specialty at the University of Toronto's medical school for two decades, healed an estimated 18,000 patients, mostly children born with cleft lips and palates and congenital deformities of the hand, as well as accident and burn victims.
Remembered as a gentle, even-tempered and self-effacing man, Dr. LINDSAY "changed the face of pediatric plastic surgery forever," wrote Ronald ZUKER, who trained under Doctor LINDSAY and followed his mentor to the University of Toronto and the Hospital for Sick Children, where he, too, performed cleft lip and palate surgery. "His kind and amiable nature was evident in the clinic when the children would run up to sit on his lap. He was a wonderful and empathetic clinician who led by example."
Being detail-oriented may have been one reason he was drawn to plastic surgery, Doctor LINDSAY recalled in his unpublished memoirs. "It's very fine work, done with much smaller instruments than regular surgery, and one can see the results of one's work, as it isn't hidden inside the body."
The eldest of five children, William LINDSAY was born and raised in Vancouver. His parents left the Ottawa Valley on the afternoon of their wedding in 1919 with a one-way rail ticket to the West Coast, where his father operated the Vancouver Tugboat Company. By 12, his son was working part-time on the tugboats up and down the coast. Later, he toiled as a dining-car waiter aboard Canadian National Railway trains.
Idealism and an uncle's influence led him to medicine, and he ranked fifth among 300 students after his first year in pre-med at the U of T. After graduation in 1945, he served briefly in the Royal Canadian Navy, and maintained a general practice in Sudbury, Ontario
On his first night, he was on call and found himself wandering through a bitterly cold and snowy streetscape searching for his first patient. He found the address, and encountered a young woman in labour. "I got to work," he recalled, "interrupted at times by an aggressive chihuahua who deemed it necessary to attack my shoelaces while I attended his mistress."
Dr. LINDSAY hitched his wagon to a rising star in 1949, when he served as a research fellow with Wilfred BIGELOW (obituary, March 30, 2005), who was conducting pioneering experiments on hypothermia as it affected heart function. Doctor BIGELOW had long wondered whether cooling the body could slow blood flow long enough to access the heart.
The two physicians successfully tested that theory on a dog at the Banting Institute. After chilling the anesthetized animal to a body temperature of 20 degrees Celsius, they interrupted cardiac circulation for 15 minutes with clamps and opened the heart. It wasn't beating. With Doctor LINDSAY watching, Doctor BIGELOW tapped the organ tentatively with an electrical probe. All four chambers responded with one convulsive throb. He tapped it again. Another beat. The organ then continued beating without blood - a first - and then with blood. The dog was rewarmed and survived.
The episode led Doctor BIGELOW to think of a device that could deliver a gentle jolt of some sort without damaging the heart, and he went on to develop the first cardiac pacemaker.
Meantime, Doctor LINDSAY had trained in plastic surgery in Toronto, Montreal and Dallas, and joined Sick Kids in 1953. The following year, the hospital established its Cleft Lip and Palate Research and Treatment Centre under his leadership. Today, it is the largest such centre in Canada, with 3,500 patients in active treatment and 175 new patients each year. It combines 16 disciplines.
Dr. LINDSAY was one of the first McLaughlin fellows. He attended the first two awards dinners in 1953 and 1954 and, in an interview with the U of T's magazine, he recalled the fellowship's benefactor, the legendary auto magnate and philanthropist Samuel McLaughlin. "There would be 14 or 16 men sitting at a long, rectangular table. Mr. McLaughlin would be sitting at the middle of one side. He wasn't very tall but he would command and direct conversation throughout dinner magnificently." Doctor LINDSAY noted, however, that in order to do this, Mr. McLaughlin would have to rise to his feet when he had something to say.
In the 1970s, Doctor LINDSAY evaluated the likelihood of success in the replantation of various appendages, including both physical and emotional measures. He found that the most common replantations - in order of frequency - were thumbs, fingers, hands, arms and legs, although the ear, nose, lips, scalp and penis could also be reattached.
He made the first of several trips to China in the early 1980s, when Canada's ambassador to that country asked him to perform cleft lip and palate surgery on children and treat burn victims at the hospital in Lanzhou, in China's northwestern Gansu province. By the early 1990s, the missions were being underwritten by the Canadian International Development Agency.
"Homes were very poor and they were heated with gas heaters," said Doctor LINDSAY's wife of 63 years, Peggy. "These would often turn over and there were a lot of bad burns to both adults and children." The Canadian doctor imparted his wisdom and skills and, in turn, learned a great deal about Chinese medicine, particularly herb-based salves and ointments for burn victims. He never did find out what was in them, as the Chinese couldn't translate their contents into English. "We never knew whether they just didn't want to tell him or really didn't know."
The Chinese hospital was able to build a new wing and, through the efforts of Doctor LINDSAY and Canadian International Development Agency, it received an anesthetic machine, a respirator, a burn bed and an electric dermatome, a machine used to produce large sheets of skin from a donor area. In gratitude, Doctor LINDSAY was named honorary head of the Gansu Provincial People's Hospital.
A great believer in research, he conducted explorations into tendon healing, which led to a special clinical interest in congenital and traumatic hand surgery. A group of his research fellows formed the Chicken Tendon Club.
Nicknamed the Silver Fox for his characteristic grey hair, he served as president of the Canadian Society of Plastic Surgeons in 1964-1965 and of the American Association of Plastic Surgery in 1970-1971. He was also active in the formation of the Bloorview-MacMillan Treatment Centre (formerly Hugh MacMillan Treatment Centre and originally the Ontario Crippled Children's Centre). A quadruple heart bypass operation around 1980 slowed him down, but not much. In 2003, he was named to the Order of Ontario.
He was happiest providing comfort and hope to thousands of children, but a close second was his time spent at the family farm, called Skytop, north of Hockley Valley. An eco-friendly farmer and environmentalist before those were popular, Doctor LINDSAY planted trees and created ponds while raising Angus cattle. His family and many young colleagues joined him for tree-planting weekends each spring. At his side, his grandchildren learned farming, fishing, skiing, gardening, horsemanship and beekeeping. He was at the farm regularly until the month before his death.
William Kerr LINDSAY was born in Vancouver on September 3, 1920. He died of congestive heart failure in Toronto on February 5, 2008. He was 87. He is survived by his wife of 63 years, Peggy (FRANCES,) children William, Barbara, Katherine and Anne, and 11 grandchildren.

ROSS, Gladys
21 August 1918 to 9 June 2008
Unexpectedly at Tillsonburg Hospital in her 90th year. Pre-deceased by her husband Ormond. Loving mother of David (Katherine SPENCER- ROSS) and devoted Grandma of Caroline and Andrew. Last survivor of the five McCormicks of Harrow, Ontario - Ruth, Gladys, John, Keith and Ralph. During her long and fulfilling life Gladys was everyone's friend. Her cheerful and caring nature brightened the day. A farm girl by birth she had a mischievous streak and captured Ormond's heart (and earned her father's temporary wrath) by slipping a pen pal note into a box of tomatoes destined for Toronto. Waiting for him to return from the war she worked as an executive secretary at General Motors, Windsor. They married in 1945, moving initially to St. Hyacinthe, Quebec and later to Halifax. Two years later, when he retired from the Navy, they settled in Weston and built a house together while she worked at Inglis. In 1956, David was adopted and life was never the same. A devoted mother, Gladys immersed herself in home and school activities and was renowned for hosting innumerable school Friends for meals and snacks. An entrepreneurial bent lay just below the surface and she established the Relique Boutique antique shop at Jane and Buttonwood, later renaming it Early Years and moving it to Jane and Bloor. Spending an extra hour with clients over a cup of tea was indicative of her ability to listen to others and drew in many new Friends and acquaintances. On Ormond's retirement in 1979 and the subsequent closing of their shop in 1984 they decided to move to Tillsonburg where they lived out their remaining years in their own home entertaining Friends and family. Special thanks to Mike and Fran, as well as Donna, Marion, Diane, Doctor DOCKX and the Community Care Access Centre and Canadian Red Cross caregivers, whose support and efforts made staying at home possible. Gladys will be deeply missed by all whose lives she touched. There will be a memorial service at Ostrander's Funeral Home, 43 Bidwell Street, Tillsonburg (519) 842-5221 at 11: 00 a.m. Monday 16 June, 2008. Rev. Maurice FRANCIS officiating. Private interment of ashes at Colchester, Essex County, will be at a future date. In lieu of flowers, donations (payable by cheque) may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Tillsonburg District Memorial Hospital would be appreciated. Personal condolence may be made at www.ostrandersfuneralhome.com

July 04, 2007 He is gone but not forgotten, And, as dawns another year: In our lonely hours of thinking, Thoughts of him are always near. Days of sadness will come o'er us, Many think the wound is healed, But they little know the sorrow, That lies in the heart concealed. Our thoughts are also with the Families of Jeff's comrades Who gave their lives that day. Love from your son Ry SECOURS- FRANCIS Your wife Sylvie SECOURS and Family.

STEPHEN, Lieutenant Colonel Peter John (1921-2008)
It is with great sadness that the family of Lt. Col. Peter STEPHEN announce his passing at Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital, Burlington late Friday July 18, 2008, after a brief illness. He leaves his beloved wife and best friend Virginia May (TRESSAM) and deeply loved daughters Virginia (Harold PEARSE) of Edmonton, and Anne (David GRAY/GREY) of Toronto, sister Mary WRAY, and nephew Ralph PERRY (Brenda, Joelle) with whom he shared a special bond. Predeceased by parents John and Bessie STEPHEN, sister Madeline FRANCIS, brothers-in-law Vincent FRANCIS and John WRAY and grand niece Jacqueline PERRY.

Upon his return home to Hamilton he rejoined the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders of Canada, serving as Commanding Officer from 1957-1962. His association with the Regiment was a life-long commitment as he continued to contribute through the Senate and regimental projects. STEPHEN worked at Stelco Hilton Works beginning in 1947 and retiring in 1982. He was a member of the Corp of Commissionaires, working with the Halton Regional Police 1984-1999. Second only to his family and his commitment to military service, were his love of the outdoors, northern Ontario, animals in all shapes and sizes, and the exploration of the world through experience and books.
