BALL, Robert " Bob" Harvey
(January 1, 1929-February 28, 2008)
Bob died at home on Thursday morning, in the tender care of his family. He was loved beyond telling by his wife and sweetheart Janet (née MORROW,) five grateful children, Timothy (d. 1984,) David, Anna GARDNER (John BROCKE,) Doug, and Nathan (Paula KILCOYNE,) as well as 15 beautiful grandchildren, two newly born great-grandchildren, and the hundreds of people whose lives he touched. Born and raised in Regina, Bob will be profoundly missed by his older siblings from Saskatchewan and their extended families; Margaret BLOMMAERT, Jim BALL and Fran APPERLY. Graduating from Scott Collegiate with Honours, Bob began an agricultural degree at University of Saskatoon before he followed a deeper call to sow seeds of the spirit and till soil in the lives of people. After marrying Janet in 1952 he worked the gold mines in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories and as a Fuller Brush Salesman to put himself through seminary at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario with two infants. As a Home Missions pastor with the Canadian Baptist Union, Bob grew and nurtured young churches in the small towns of Kitimat and Richmond, British Columbia, and Jasper, Alberta. His innovative programming with young adults in the national park stood him in good stead during his term on the pastoral team at First Baptist Church, Calgary from 1971-1976 where he established the Burning Bush Coffee House ministry for youth. Inspired in part by staying as a family in a chalet at L'Abri in Switzerland in 1969, Bob began dreaming and envisioning along with Janet, about creating a hospitality based ecumenical renewal centre. King's Fold Retreat Centre, located in the foothills of the Rockies celebrates its 30th anniversary this year and continues to be place of beauty, peace and deep inspiration for people from all walks of life. Bob was a master stained glass artist, a visionary, an entrepreneur, a dreamer, a romantic, a barista, and a lover of life par excellence. He will be celebrated at Central United Church, Calgary on Monday, March 3 at 11: 00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to King's Fold Retreat Centre, L'Arche Canada Foundation or the Henri Nouwen Society.

Garfield Theodore MELTZER born in Saint John, New Brunswick June 29, 1922 passed away Saturday, April 26, 2008. Dearest husband for over 53 years of Jacqueline (RUBANOWICZ of Paris, France,) beloved father of Evelyne (Michael GARDNER, Halifax,) Richard (Shona GODWIN, Montreal), Stephen (Michaela LINCOLN, Montreal), and Michael (Linda SALNA, Toronto.) He was the much adored Zeidah of Theo and Michaela Meltzer GARDNER, Alexander and Marieke GARDNER, Sebastian, Aidan, Jacob, Spencer, Ariella, Elijah, Kendra and Alison MELTZER. Also leaving behind brother Murray (Eleanor, Montreal,) sister Mary (Walter NACHUM, Florida,) cousin Lillian Meltzer GOLDSTEIN, many nieces, nephews, grand nieces, grand-nephews, and other cousins in Canada, the United States, France and Israel.
Will be greatly missed by Mary ROY MELTZER and Elizabeth BOSCO who provided loving home support over the decades.
Predeceased by his father Samuel MELTZER (who immigrated to Saint John from Vilna, Lithuania) and mother Alice {DRITZ} MELTZER (Vilna, Lithuania) who died in Saint John when Gar was only two, much-loved stepmother, Sarah BALAGENSKI (Warsaw, Poland,) and siblings Lillian (Sydney SCHOEN), Kaye (Barney COLTON), Edward, Anne (Jack LEVINE), Frances (Mischa GELTMAN) and Bill (Doreen.) He dearly loved his in-laws Simon RUBANOWICZ and Raymonde {GORDON} RUBANOWICZ who had also predeceased him. Gar was the kindest, most generous, fair, honourable, humble, optimistic, and evercourteous man who had an indomitable spirit to the very end, and had an irrepressible Gar Heart, that continued to beat long after the doctors thought it would. Gar always took the high road, always turned the other cheek, always had a good word with a smile for everyone. He was committed to promoting human rights, brotherhood, mutual respect, peace and community service throughout his life. He was active in the scouting movement, Akela for over 25 years with the Judaen and then the Eli Boyaner Cub Pack in Saint John. He considered each of his cubs as one of his boys. He delivered Meals on Wheels, offered pastoral care at the Saint John Regional Hospital, served on the Board of the Shaarei Zedek Synagogue, was a founding member and Commander of the Jewish War Veterans in Atlantic Canada, was a member of the Maritime Parkinsons Association, the North West Commercial Travellers' Association of Canada, Albion Masonic Lodge No. 1, the Saint John Multi-Cultural Association, B'nai Brith, RUSI, and past member of the Carlton Curling Club. Gar was a life member of the No. 2 Legion in Saint John having served in the Canadian army and then the airforce as an Officer Training Instructor during World War 2. After the war he was actively involved as an instructor with the air cadets. Gar believed in working hard, in doing one's best and realizing the fruit of one's labours for family and community. He was a ship chandler, the owner of Gar's Diner, the Gar Meltzer Sales, and a commercial salesman for over 40 years representing some 50 companies throughout Atlantic Canada. Six months on the road every year for decades, he developed a network of customers who became Friends who never forgot him for his acts of kindness and tzadkah. His good deeds were innumerable and we usually only heard by chance from those who were touched by his generosity and altruism. In 1992 he was awarded the Canada 125 Confederation Anniversary Medal for community service. And yet Gar never sought honours or recognition. Gar loved his family and he loved his home. He treasured his Friendship with life-long pal I. J. Davis. Thanks to caregivers Judy and Jackie who were so helpful and compassionate providing athome assistance in Saint John; special hugs to Donna who took such good care of him while visiting in Toronto. Much appreciation to the wonderful medical and nursing staff at Toronto East General Hospital where he spent his last days. Donations may be made to the Maritimes Parkinsons Association or to the Gar MELTZER Memorial Scholarship fund c/o the Toronto Dominion Bank, 78 Main Street West, Saint John, New Brunswick, E2M 3N3. Funeral was held at Brenan's Select Community Funeral Home, Paradise Row, Saint John, New Brunswick (506) 634-7424 on Wednesday April 30, 2008.

GARIGUE o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2008-06-24 published
Philippe GARIGUE, 90: Educator
British-born francophone revitalized bilingualism at York University
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to the Globe and Mail, Page S10
Ottawa -- Playing a prominent role in the intellectual, artistic and academic life of Montreal for almost three decades, Philippe GARIGUE knew everyone who counted during an era in Quebec history that transformed a province.
Building a worldwide reputation as a professor, philosopher, poet, bibliophile and author, Prof. GARIGUE moved with complete ease between Canada's two major linguistic groups and was on a first-name basis with such men as René Lévesque, Marc Lalonde and Pierre Trudeau before they became national figures.
Indeed, Mr. GARIGUE and his Italian-born wife hosted the cream Montreal's intellectual society in their Outremont home after they emigrated to Canada in 1954 at the invitation of McGill University. His reputation - earned in part as a senior researcher at the London School of Economics - had preceded him.
Philippe GARIGUE was born in Manchester, England, the son of a professionally trained opera singer who had been born in Egypt of a diplomat father. In the early 1920s, when he was about five years old, his mother took him to Paris. Attending both primary and secondary school there, he revelled in the city's intellectual and literary life.
Everything changed when the Second World War broke out on September 1, 1939. He immediately left for England and joined the British army. Commissioned as an officer in the Royal Fusiliers, he served in the Middle East, North Africa and Italy. He also served with the Special Air Service Regiment before being seconded as a liaison officer.
The fortunes of war saw Prof. GARIGUE negotiate with the enemy on one memorable occasion. Allied shelling was causing heavy damage in the Italian town of Assissi and the frescoes of the town's basilica were suffering. He decided to do something about it.
"He got in touch with the German commander and said, 'The war has destroyed everything. It cannot destroy this church and its art,' said his granddaughter, Alexandra GARIGUE. " The Germans moved their forces so the church would no longer be in the line of fire. The British did, too."
After the war, Assissi made him an honorary citizen.
Some months later, he was stationed in the Italian town of San Remo, where he met the twin daughters of the mayor. Amalia and Giovanna were 8. It was wartime and romance flourished for Prof. GARIGUE and Amalia. They wed in 1946.
After the war, he went back to his studies and obtained a doctorate in anthropology from the University of London in 1953.
Not long afterward, Canada came calling. Just three years after arriving in Montreal, he was appointed dean of social sciences at the University of Montreal. There, he created four new departments: political science, anthropology, criminology and demographics. "Under Mr. GARIGUE, the faculty exploded," said Guy Rocher of the University of Montreal. "It hired about 100 professors, welcomed thousands of students and started to award doctorates in different disciplines. This was the golden age of the faculty."
It was during the 1950s that Prof. GARIGUE also decided to convert from Anglicanism to Catholicism. His sponsor was the deeply religious Georges Vanier, later to become Canada's first francophone governor-general.
In 1972, the university decided to create a new faculty of arts and science by amalgamating four faculties, including Prof. GARIGUE's. "He went back to teaching," said Prof. Rocher, an expert on the sociology of law. "It was hard for him to see the faculty he had given so much to disappear."
Over the years, Prof. GARIGUE, a member of the Royal Society of Canada, was awarded many academic honours. His poetry won him literary prizes, including the Prix du Concours litteraires du Quebec.
In 1980, Prof. GARIGUE moved to Glendon College, York University's bilingual liberal arts college. Enrolment had fallen to 900 students and, as the new principal, he knew he had a big job in front of him. "My idea was to promote Glendon as the best institution to get a bilingual education," he said years later. "I started to promote the idea of attracting the francophonie - this was the key word for the future."
By 1987, enrolment had climbed to more than 2,000 and he retired as professor emeritus 10 years later.
He was made an officer of the Order of Canada in 1987.
Philippe GARIGUE was born in Manchester, England, on October 13, 1917. He died of natural causes in Toronto on March 25, 2008. He was 90. He leaves Amalia, his wife of 61 years, daughter Viviane and son Pierre. His son Robert predeceased him.
