HARVEY, David (1909-2008)
Peacefully in his 99th year at the Westbury Long Term Care Facility on Saturday, March 8th, after a very long and full life. Loved brother of Kay HORNSBY and husband Joe, Violet, the late Doris, Betty, Jessie and George. Brother-in-law to Winnie. Beloved uncle of the late Jimmy GRADWELL. Dearly missed by nieces and nephews, Dianne (Ralph) and family, Sue (Henry), David, Michael (Henrietta) and family. Long time cherished friend of Reva Lawry. David was born in Edinburgh, Scotland on September 25, 1909. He was a man of many talents - a dancer, singer, actor, comedian, prize fighter and world traveller. He arrived in Canada in 1922, and at age 13 found himself a job at the Glidden Paint Factory. This career proved not exciting enough for a boy of many talents. It was the vaudeville era and David felt the pull of show business, so he began performing in amateur talent contests where he won first prize, a grand total of three dollars, after singing "The Bells Are Ringing for Me and My Gal". He then realized that performing was more enjoyable than pouring paint. For years after that he picked up a few dollars here and there as a singer and entertainer in the Toronto theatres. When his dancing and singing routine wasn't paying enough, he took to the waters to work the tour boat excursions on the Cayuga and Chippewa as a mess boy, serving the crew. At age 20, David wanted more excitement in his life and with the stock market crashing and jobs being few, he decided to ride the cars of the railway to Alaska, the Yukon and then on to Vancouver. The next journey in his life took him to stage and television. He performed in many commercials for Esso, Leons, Speedy Lube, and Nokia. He appeared in many movies including Mrs. Sofel's Daughter, Midnight Eyes, Sea of Love, and Moonstruck as well as the theatrical productions of Tommy Boy, Goosebumps, Stepping Out, Taking the Heat and the television series King of Kensington and many SCTV series. David was central to the formation of Club Milango Tango Club in Toronto, as well as co-founder of the Radio Artists of Toronto Society and in 1942, co-founder of the Alliance of Canadian Television Radio Actors, now known as ACTRA. David's passion for travel took him to numerous countries of the world. He was not shy and always willing to try anything once. This included sailing, skiing, scuba diving, riding elephants in India and camels in Turkey. He spent many years living abroad in New Zealand, Indonesia, Bali and Italy. Unfortunately, he was not able to live out his dream to travel to Patagonia. David was a fun loving, active gentleman with a wonderful sense of humour. He had a never-ending lust for life, travel and dancing. The family wishes to sincerely thank the 2nd floor staff at The Westbury who treated David with much care, love, dignity and Friendship during his time there. Visitation to celebrate David's life will take place on Saturday, March 15th at Turner and Porter Funeral Hom (Butler Chapel), 4933 Dundas Street West, Toronto (between Islington and Kipling Aves.) from 1: 00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., with a service at 3:00 p.m. and a reception to follow. The family gratefully declines the acceptance of flowers, and asks that donations be made to the Dorothy Ley Hospice, Toronto Grace Hospital or a charity of your choice.

GRAHAM, John Umstead, B.Sc. E.E., P.Eng.
Lt. Cdr., CD, Royal Canadian Navy (Ret'd)
(September 15, 1929-February 7, 2008)
After a courageous battle with cancer, John died at the Powell River General Hospital after being cared for lovingly at home by his family for many months. Born in Stratford, Ontario to James and Jane (UMSTEAD) GRAHAM, educated in Toronto and graduated from the University of New Brunswick in 1955, with a B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering. While in Fredericton, New Brunswick, he met and married the love of his life, Ruth JACQUARD, his wife of 55 years. John served 25 years with the Royal Canadian Navy on both coasts, in Ottawa and two years in England, as an exchange officer, at the submarine base in Portland Bill, Dorset. He, Ruth and their two children, David and Paula travelled extensively throughout England and Europe before returning to Canada to their home in Victoria. John retired from the navy in 1975 and consulted to the marine industry until 1986. They moved to Qualicum Beach, British Columbia, where they built a lovely new home and designed a beautiful Rhododendron garden which they enjoyed for 15 years. They moved to Powell River in 2004 to be closer to their children and grandchildren. Always a gentleman, John could keep an audience captivated with his wonderful sense of humour and endless stories of his travels. He was respected and loved by all who knew him. He leaves to mourn his devoted wife, Ruth, his beloved and caring children, David (Joanne), Paula (Brian) and six wonderful grandchildren, Rob and Sam Graham, Scott, Ian, Sydney and Kate Barnes. His only sister, Jane Anne CATALANO (Tony) and many cousins, nieces and nephews, as well as the many Friends he has made in his lifetime will be saddened by his passing. He is predeceased by his parents and his younger brother, Jimmy. Heartfelt thanks to his doctor, Bruce Hobson and all the nursing care given by the Palliative care nurses, Caroline, Lee and Chris, and Community Health Care worker, Carol. In keeping with John's wishes, a private memorial will be held in the Spring for family and Friends. In lieu of flowers, the family wishes donations be made to the Powell River General Hospital Foundation CAT scan fund.

GRAHAM, Maggi
Artist, art teacher, poet, mother, seti (Arabic for grandmother), social activist, wife, lover. Born August 7, 1932, in Aberdeen, Scotland. Died August 12, 2007, in Vancouver of pneumonia and Alzheimer's disease, aged 75.
By Duncan GRAHAM, Page L8
Maggi was fostered at two years old by the Lawie family in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, who saw her through art school.
We met during a summer hotel job in the Highlands when I was doing a forestry course. I immigrated to Canada in 1956, and Maggi followed in a few months.
The next year we were married at Toronto's Old City Hall by a justice of the peace who smoked a cigar and answered the phone during the brief ceremony. No matter - the wedding was followed by a month's honeymoon driving to Mexico City and the art colony of San Miguel de Allende.
Maggi returned to Aberdeen for the birth of our first son, Malcolm, so the Lawie family could see the new baby.
After being back in Canada for a few months, we were off to Stanstead College, an independent boarding school on the Quebec-Vermont border, where I had been given a teaching position. Three more children followed - another boy, Lomond, and two girls, Fiona and Rona.
Maggi's 27-year career as an art teacher began in 1964, when she was asked to set up an art department at Stanstead College.
Getting her purple motorcycle in 1985 fulfilled a lifelong dream. In full black leather, she cruised the back roads of Vermont and Quebec in the summers.
Maggi was interested in dowsing (or psychic divining), and was concerned about the state of the planet. After attending an Amnesty International Canada meeting, she helped form a local Quebec-Vermont boundary chapter.
We found the Unitarian Universalist Church, with its no-creed outlook, to be our style.
Maggi developed her poetry once we retired to Vancouver in 1994, giving passionate performances. Seeing with new eyes, new vistas, were the themes of her poetry. Her art, now mainly collage, became a major interest, and she gave and took classes. Her writings and poetry emphasized the moment - the only one we have. Appreciate and sense it and write down every day what you have to be grateful for.
Lomond's death in 1993 of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome was devastating. Maggi volunteered with AIDS Vancouver and the Vancouver Friends For Life Society.
In 2003, the first signs of Alzheimer's appeared, and in September, 2006, it was time for her to move into a care facility.
After two falls and broken bones, her decline was rapid. On August 9 last year, she spoke her first complete sentence in weeks to Rona and me: "I am going to die." It was a decision, a statement. She passed on without distress with Fiona and me by her side.
Duncan GRAHAM is Maggi's husband.

SAINT_AMAND, John Raymond Jr.
By Peggie GRAHAM and Marilyn KEDDY, Page L6
John Raymond SAINT_AMAND Jr. Union organizer, teacher, partner, brother, uncle, friend. Born January 29, 1943, in Galt, Ontario Died October 31, 2007, in Kentville, Nova Scotia, of cancer, aged 64.
John SAINT_AMAND approached his death the same way he lived his life: joyfully, selflessly, fearlessly and with great integrity.
His room was the busiest on the ward as he welcomed visiting family and Friends. Tears were for outside the room. Within, there was laughter, stories, reminiscences and his continuing concern for others. He wrote his own obituary so he could honour those who had inspired and assisted him, but more to spare his partner, Marilyn, the task.
This concern for others was a hallmark of John's life and led him into a career organizing in the Canadian trade-union movement. John graduated with a master's in sociology from Dalhousie University in Halifax. He taught at Mohawk College in Hamilton for many years and later at Dalhousie.
During his Mohawk years he became interested in organizing campaigns with trade unions associated with the Confederation of Canadian Unions. John left his teaching job to volunteer to help Cape Breton coal miners form their own Canadian Mineworkers Union. Although they did not win the vote to change unions, John always saw success in people having the confidence to join together to fight for what they believed in. From 1985 to 1989 he organized in the "pink ghetto" of child-care workers and staff at women's shelters.
John met Marilyn KEDDY, who became his life partner for 32 years. When they opted for retirement, they took on a major challenge: the top-to-bottom renovation of an old house that was to be their new residence. Unfortunately, they had just a few short months to enjoy their handiwork before John was diagnosed with cancer.
An avid fisherman and outdoorsman, John delighted in taking visitors out in his boat with his dogs. He was also a talented musician who played viola. As Marilyn remarked when she was gathering photographs to display at the celebration of John's life, "There was no problem finding good pictures of John." In almost every one he was smiling - on picket lines, in China, on camping trips, at conferences and conventions and in classrooms.
His wholehearted contribution to the trade-union movement was recognized with the establishment of three annual John St. Amand bursaries from the Confederation of Canadian Unions. It was a tribute he accepted with characteristic modesty.
Family, Friends, federal and provincial politicians, academic and community colleagues filled the Mahone Bay fire hall to celebrate the too-short life of this remarkable man. John would have loved it.
Peggie GRAHAM is John's friend, and Marilyn KEDDY is his partner.

(predeceased by Wade). Jackie was the consummate mother of Hamish (WHITE/WHYTE,) Janet (STRONG,) John WHITE/WHYTE (deceased) and Christopher (WHITE/WHYTE) (their father the late J.B. WHITE/WHYTE Jr.) and the very proud grandmother of Brendan WHITE/WHYTE; splendid sister of Charlotte GRAHAM and indulgent aunt of Amanda, Victoria (Brian) MITCHELL and Jeremy (Jaye). Educated at Miss Railton's Primary, Whitney Public School, Havergal and UCU of T (Alpha Phi) her studies were interrupted by her years as an air traffic controller in the Royal Canadian Air Force Graduating from Fine Arts she worked for the Art Gallery of Ontario and while raising her children became much involved in theatre: As a member of Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists, hers was the voice of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Howdy-Doody in the 50s and 60s. Many a play at the University of Toronto Alumnae Theatre had her on stage, backstage, painting sets, organizing costumes and everything else. Jackie's, and then Wade's interest in theatre extended to San Miguel de Allende where they spent the nasty months of winter for many years. As Jackie WHITE/WHYTE, she supported the Canadian Mental Health Association as a fund raiser, the Parkinson Foundation and was instrumental in raising funds to pay the 'Huronia Helpers" for the appeal to keep the Hurona Regional Centre from closing. Her Friends are everywhere, from her Tanamakoon Days, theatre, various alumnae associations, summers in Rosseau, and being a 'Toronto girl' for a long, long time.
