GILBRIDE, Larry
Husband, uncle, bobsledder, golfer, taxman. Born November 21, 1942, in Montreal. Died July 15, 2007, in Toronto of pancreatic cancer, aged 64.
By Fred LANGAN, Page L6
Larry GILBRIDE was a man without an enemy in the world. He was so well-loved by the people he worked with at the government tax office that they flew the flag at half-mast when he died.
Larry was a straight shooter, a modest man with a wonderful dry sense of humour. He never complained, not even during his brief bout with cancer.
He was brought up in the Montreal suburb of the Town of Mount Royal. His parents decided to send Larry to an all-French primary school. There wasn't an English Catholic high school nearby, so like many other boys Larry took the bus to Loyola High School, a Jesuit private boy's school.
During high school, Larry did a lot of typical teenage things: He played hockey, took up the guitar and played in a band for a while.
When he was at Loyola College and for a few years afterward he shared a ski shack in St-Sauveur, Quebec, with 10 of his Friends - a young man's paradise in the 1960s.
Larry's first job was with CIL chemical company. A bean counter by day, he was anything but the mild-mannered accountant on the weekend.
Larry loved speed. To start, he raced cars at tracks in Quebec. His first racing car was a Sunbeam Alpine, a British two-seater. He then raced a Camaro at the track at St-Jovite.
But if racing cars was dangerous, Larry went on to a much riskier sport. He started out with the luge, a kind of tiny sled for adult daredevils, and then moved on to the bobsled.
In 1975, Larry drove the four-man Quebec team to third place in the North American championships at Lake Placid, New York He was also the manager of the bobsled team representing Canada at the 1980 Olympics held in Lake Placid.
The next passion in Larry's life was golf, which he took up in 1980. One of his first golf partners was his future wife, Joan PETERSON. After being downsized from work after 25 years, Larry found himself with time on his hands. As he looked for a new job, he improved his golf score from the high 90s to the mid-80s.
Larry worked for the Canada Revenue Agency for 15 years. Being the taxman made a few of his Friends nervous, but he was great company over beers. He was a bachelor who married late in life, amazing his Friends by settling into domesticity. He was also a devoted uncle.
Larry was quite handy at fixing things up around the house. Most Fridays he would play golf at Spring Lakes golf club in Stouffville, Ontario. He also loved his dogs. He and Joan had a beagle called Rush, then another beagle named Sally.
Larry died too soon. His Friends and family miss him, his chuckle and his droll wit.
Fred LANGAN is Larry's friend.

JAMES, Gayle Marlene (née GILCHRIST)
(April 15, 1940-May 30, 2008)
Gayle Marlene Gilchrist JAMES passed away on Friday, May 30, 2008 at the age of 68 years with close family members by her side. Gayle met lymphoma and death as she lived her life; carefully researched, discussed at length and then accepted the outcome with a calm dignity and a touch of black humour. Born April 15, 1940 in rural Alberta, she attended a one room school taught by her father, high school in Castor and on to the University of Alberta (B.A. English 1962) and University of Toronto (B.S.W. 1963, M.S.W. 1966). Gayle was predeceased by her parents, Lela (GREENWALT) and Don GILCHRIST, her brother, Don, her sister, Norma, and her beloved canine, Lady. She will be missed by her brother, Garry (Elly) Victoria, British Columbia; her nieces and nephews, Debby DOBSON (Ed HALL), Becky DOBSON, Melanie DOBSON (Graeme ROCKER) all of Nova Scotia, Kim DOBSON (Ramona KRAEMER) of Ontario; Laura, Jacqueline and Nicole GILCHRIST of Victoria she will also be missed by her grand-nieces, nephews and god children, Karen, Esther, Alex, Chris, Sarah, Emily, Adam, Patrick, Zac, Linda, Ben, Erin and Sean; as well as her great-grandnephew, Nahze; honorary aunt, Jean PEETERS of Victoria, British Columbia as well as by Doctor K.W. JAMES. She started her social work career with the Alberta Child Guidance Clinic before joining the Education Clinic, Edmonton Public School Board in 1967 and then the University of Calgary, the Faculty of Social Work in Edmonton in 1975 before moving to Calgary in 1994 and retiring as Associate Professor Emeritus in 2004. While working with students with learning disabilities and their families, she developed a consummate passion for public issues that led to a life-long involvement in social advocacy and public policy. Her dedication to social work and inspirational leadership was legendary, holding many professional association positions, first as Registrar (1974-1977), President (1979-1981) and Treasurer (1996-98) of the Alberta Association of Social Workers and President of the Canadian Association of Social Workers (1981-83). Gayle's international leadership began in 1978 and was capped by being elected Canada's first President of the International Federation of Social Workers (1988-1992). She was instrumental in Canada hosting the first world social work conference in 1984 and the establishment of the International Federation of Social Workers Human Rights Commission in 1988 to advocate for missing, wrongfully detained and tortured social workers and students. Appointed by the Prime Minister to Chair the National Council of Welfare (1986-1989), she was the senior non-governmental organization delegate on the Minister of Health and Welfare's social policy mission to the Republic of China and the only woman and only non-governmental organization member of Canada's delegation to the United Nations Welfare Ministers Inter-Regional Consultation on Developmental Social Welfare in 1987. She was a founding member of the Edmonton Association for Children with Learning Disabilities, Canadian Research Institute for Law and Family, Canadian Social Work Foundation, Weiler Award Trust; long time board member of the Canadian Council of Social Development and International Council of Social Welfare, Canada; and member of Kings College Circle, University of Toronto. Her many honours included an Alberta Achievement Award (Excellence Category), Exemplary Contribution Award (Alberta Association of Social Workers), 75th Anniversary Award (University of Toronto, Faculty of Social Work), Outstanding National Service Award (Canadian Association of Social Workers), Teaching Excellence Award (University of Calgary), Arbor Award for Outstanding Volunteer Service (University of Toronto), inaugural Andrew Mouravieff-Apostol Medal (International Federation of Social Workers) and Lifetime Achievement Award (Pulse of Social Work, Calgary). Gayle was an inspiration and beloved mentor to countless students, colleagues, Friends and family. She was uncompromising in her support of students and an incisive media commentator on social policy issues. Unphased by her illness in her final years, she devoted untold hours of volunteer expert witness testimony to help victims of eugenic sterilizations win a landmark class action settlement. To paraphrase Maya Angelou, those touched by Gayle may forget her exact words or the specifics of what she did, but they will never forget how special she made them feel. A special thank you to Doctor T. Thaell, Doctor E. Liu, and to the staff at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre for the excellent care they provided to Gayle over the last seven years. A Memorial Celebration of Gayle's Life will be held at the Rozsa Centre, University of Calgary, on Monday, July 14, 2008 at 2: 00 p.m. A reception will follow. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

LOVE, David Vaughan
Professor Of Forestry, University Of Toronto
Born August 25, 1919 in Saint Martin's, New Brunswick; passed away on July 2, 2008 in Toronto. Predeceased by his wife, Ruth, his parents, Allan and Elizabeth LOVE, and his brothers and sisters: Muriel GILCHRIST ('Gunkle',) Randolph, Bernice PEPIN ('Bub',) Janet DUBOYCE ('Bab',) Robert and Eugene. Dave will be sadly missed by his daughter Pat and her husband Wayne; son Peter and his wife, Brigid; and daughter Nan and her husband Luigi; and by his grandchildren David and Greg; Patrick and Rebecca; and Vibika and Lillemor. Dave served as an officer in the Royal Canadian Navy during World War 2. Following the War, he and his beautiful bride, Ruth, moved to Toronto where he accepted a position as Professor at the Faculty of Forestry, University of Toronto. In the early days, he found that many of his students, veterans like himself, were older than he was. Apart from two memorable sabbaticals in Venezuela and Malaysia, he spent his entire career at U. of T., retiring in 1985, and throughout that time was active in national and provincial organizations promoting forestry as a profession and as a major policy concern for all Canadians. He was a dedicated educator, and worked diligently for the causes in which he believed. His greatest pleasures came from spending time with his family at their cottage in Haliburton, and from trips to his home town on the Bay of Fundy, Saint Martin's, fond memories of which remained with him to the end. A memorial service will be held on Monday, July 7 at 11: 00 a.m. at Fairlawn Avenue United Church, 28 Fairlawn Avenue (5 Blocks north of Lawrence off Yonge St.), Toronto. Service to be followed by a reception in the church. In lieu of flowers, a memorial donation may be made to The Scott Mission, 502 Spadina Avenue, Toronto M5S 2H1 or The Nature Conservancy of Canada, 36 Eglinton Avenue West, Suite 400, Toronto M4R 1A1.

SINCLAIR, Robert Grey
Robert (Bob) passed gently at the age of 94 on April 9, 2008, surrounded by family. He will be profoundly missed by his wife of seventy years, Irene (née THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON,) their daughters Diane GILDAY (David) and Marilynne SINCLAIR (Brent HOLDEN,) son Gregory SINCLAIR (Kateri LANTHIER) and six grandchildren, Sean (Jane CASKEY), Neil (Kristi SYRON), and Keith GILDAY (Regan BIGGS), and Nicholas, Julia and newborn William SINCLAIR. Robert was the proud great-grandfather of James, Ellen and Walker GILDAY. He was predeceased by his sister Renee DUNTHORNE.
Born in Toronto on July 22, 1913, Robert married Irene in 1937. In 1943, the couple moved to Montreal, where they raised their family, returning to Toronto in 1987. Robert delighted us all with his passion for jazz and swing music - he was a clarinet and saxophone player, and performed in Toronto swing bands by night in the 1930s, while completing Chartered Accountant accreditation by day. He enjoyed a successful career as chief financial officer for a major, Quebec-based construction company. In later years, he and Irene took great pleasure in their cottage on Lake Champlain in upstate New York, hosting innumerable joyful family gatherings. His sense of humour, unshakeable optimism at lowering his golf score 'next time,' and his talent for improvising vivid bedtime stories are indelible memories. We will always cherish the legacy of Robert's gracious, gentle and deeply considerate nature.
The family wishes to acknowledge the thoughtful care and diligence of the staff of the Wellesley Central Place, Robert's home for the last two years of his life. If desired, donations may be made to Wellesley Central Place, 160 Wellesley Street East, Toronto, M4A 1J3.
A family service will be held on Saturday, April 12. Condolences and memories may be forwarded through www.humphreymiles.com.

March 30, 2007 There's a special kind of feeling, When I think about you, Dad, It's a pleasure to remember, All the happy times we've had, There's a special kind of caring, That is meant for you alone, There's a special place within my heart, That only you can own.

Remembering my dear husband, Bill, who passed away 2007 March 30. I remember the day I met you And the day God made you mine. I remember the day God took you And will 'til the end of time. We made our vows together, Until death do we part. But the day you were taken from me, My whole world fell apart. Sometimes I think I'm dreaming, I can't believe it's true, That I can go on living, When I no longer have you. And the memories of the happy years, When we were together. The joys, tears, love and fears, Will stay with me forever. And when I'm sad and lonely, And everything goes wrong, I seem to hear you whisper, "Cheer up and carry on". Lovingly remembered, sadly missed - Sue
