HAYMAN, Norman Wright, B.A.Sc., M.B.A.
Norm, beloved husband of Carol (HUGHES,) passed peacefully with family by his side on February 15, 2008 in his 82nd year. He passed after a brief battle with pancreatic cancer, much as he lived with quiet strength and inspiring resolve to care for those around him. Born October 29, 1926 in Toronto, Ontario, Norm was son of the late Thomas and Wilhelmina (WRIGHT) HAYMAN, both emigrants from Scotland in 1913. Norm was predeceased by brothers Bill (Gladys) of Toronto and Tom (Marion) of Ottawa. Norm will be greatly missed by his loving wife of nearly 51 years, his best friend and soul mate, Carol. He was a wonderful and caring father to daughter Leslie (partner Kate), son Jamie, and two sons from a previous marriage, Douglas (Joyce) of Caledon and David of Ottawa, Ontario. Norm was proud papa to Mathew and Katrina, and Kate and Steven. Norm is survived by many nieces, nephews and dear Friends. and was particularly thrilled to meet his namesake, Norman, young son of nephew Thomas. Norm's family is grateful for being in his life and feels deep pride in him. He was a true gentleman who was unpretentious in his success, fulfilling life-long goals and dreams. Primary among them, Norm committed to taking care of his family in a way his father could not. Norm's father died during the Depression without insurance, forcing his Mom to work and leaving 12 year-old Norman with his two older brothers to contribute as they could. As a boy and throughout his life, he was passionate about aircraft engineering. Along with middle brother Tom, Norm dreamt of designing planes. This he did. And he was delighted to fly a First World War biplane from the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, as a gift from his wife for his 75th Birthday. He often enjoyed telling the story about a time just prior to his father's death when young Norm and Tom studied aircraft in great detail. They wrote letters with such competence that aircraft manufacturers actually sent box loads of specifications and designs to them at the small family apartment above a store in North Toronto. That was until Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers paid a visit to identify the two unknown Hayman 'men' and confiscate their materials, all deemed critical to national security leading into the Second World War. The officers interrogated Mr. HAYMAN, senior, at length in absolute disbelief that it was young 'Nor' and 'the boys' who were responsible for collecting a treasure trove of classified military documents for no real reason other than genuine curiosity and desire to learn. Norm went on to graduate from Aeronautical Engineering at the University of Toronto in 1950 after graduating from Northern Vocational School in 1945. Norm joined Avro Canada at Toronto and engaged in design of the CF100, initial work on the supersonic Avro Arrow. He then went on to Engineering Personnel Administration and was recognized for his executive potential by Avro. In 1958, the company sponsored Norm to the Middle Management and MBA Programs at the Harvard Business School from which he graduated a year later. When the Arrow project was cancelled, Norm returned to Toronto and joined Woods Gordon Management Consultants for four years. He was engaged for the next six years by the Dominion Forge Company in Windsor Ontario. In 1969, Norm returned to Toronto to join Inco Limited's corporate office in Organization Planning, Management Services and Corporate Planning. He retired in 1991 as Assistant Vice President, Corporate Planning and Business Development. And he then established N.W. Hayman Associates to carry out business consulting projects until 1997. For two decades until his diagnosis with cancer in January 2008, Norm devoted much time and effort to groups and major institutions in the fields of mental and community health, social support and family services. He was engaged in a wide range of roles and responsibilities including front-line volunteer activities, Board level involvement, strategic planning, advisory and committee work at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, Toronto, among others. He served as President of Madison Housing and Support Services Inc. And as a caring citizen, Norm made informative presentations to Toronto City Council explaining his thorough analysis of the social and economic risks to the City if it won its bid for the 2008 Summer Olympics. Norm was proud to establish a Mathematics Scholarship in his name for the 75'th anniversary of 'Northern' Secondary School. His annual award to a top student provides financial support and encouragement much as Norm received from his teachers on a personal basis while there. Without such interest and direct assistance, Norm's potential would not have been realized. He would not have considered or found opportunity to step beyond his vocation as a teenaged draftsman to succeed as he did in higher education with a focus on engineering and an executive career path. Norm's greatest pleasures included travel around the world with Carol, with family, Friends and for business. He enjoyed time at the cottage in Haliburton, playing bridge, reading, managing personal investments, exploring economics and current affairs. Norm enjoyed their playful cat, Theo, and entertaining Friends and family around the pool and garden of the long-time family home in west-end Toronto. Based on his wishes, cremation has already taken place with plans for later interment at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery. On February 27, 2008 a service will be held for Norman at 4 p.m. in the Chapel of The Old Mill, followed at 5 p.m. by a Celebration of Life in the Garden Room, 21 Old Mill Road, Toronto M8X 1G5. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a directed fund being set up in Norm's name at Princess Margaret Hospital, to Centre for Addiction and Mental Health Foundation or to your favorite charity and will be very much appreciated by Norm's family.

Former Canadian ambassador got his start as a wartime spy
With dashing looks and a gift for languages, he served as high commissioner in London and as ambassador to Indonesia, Czechoslovakia, Venezuela and the Dominican Republic
By Alicia PRIEST, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S10
Victoria -- It was 1975, and the Canadian ambassador to Indonesia was busy conducting his usual diplomatic duties. Peter JOHNSTON was obliged to host colleagues, visit regional governors, negotiate aid projects, lobby cabinet ministers on behalf of Canadian business interests, advise distraught parents whose children had run afoul of the law, open art shows and attend an endless series of meetings, military parades, state dinners and cultural functions.
Then, in late November, the former Portuguese colony of East Timor declared its independence. Within two weeks, the Indonesian army invaded and eventually slaughtered as many as 100,000 East Timorese. When the fighting supposedly stopped, the Jakarta regime invited Mr. JOHNSTON to tour its new and allegedly peaceful territory, hoping to polish its tarnished international image.
As directed by his government, however, Mr. JOHNSTON "had nothing to do with it." As he explained in his 2002 memoir Cooper's Snoopers and Other Follies, accepting the offer would have condoned the Indonesian takeover.
"But what stung a little," he continued, "was the fact that I was not instructed to do any 'deploring' at the Indonesian foreign ministry… and External Affairs in Ottawa, as far as I knew, had made no fuss about the matter either publicly or through diplomatic channels. To me, personally, the incident was a good illustration of Talleyrand's advice to his ambassador, 'Surtout point de zèle,' or more to the point, 'Keep your head down and shut up.' "
In some ways, that counsel captured Mr. JOHNSTON's modus operandi precisely. With his dashing looks, poise and gift for languages, he made an ideal envoy. Fluent in French, Italian, Spanish and Russian, he could get by in German and Czech and taught himself rudimentary Swahili and Indonesian. The one language he balked at, declaring it too difficult, was Japanese. As a diplomat, he served at the Canadian high commissions in London and Tanzania, and was Canadian ambassador to Indonesia, Czechoslovakia, Venezuela and the Dominican Republic.
But while he performed the protocols of the foreign service with aplomb, he possessed a more critical and less reverent side - all bolstered by a questioning mind and a wicked sense of humour. Undoubtedly, those traits made his life both more difficult and more interesting. "I don't think he was always popular with his senior officers. They may have found him a little difficult to work with from time to time," said long-time friend and former journalist Charles King. "But that was the strength and beauty of the man. He was an un-diplomat, really."
Diplomacy was actually Mr. JOHNSTON's second vocation. Earlier, he had been a spy and security-information analyst, working in counterintelligence during the Second World War and the Canadian intelligence community during the Cold War.
Raised in Toronto, he was the eldest of four children whose father, George, was a Toronto lawyer and mother, Gladys, was an immigrant from England. His mother refused to send him to private school, so he attended Brown School and then Jarvis Collegiate in Toronto. He showed a keen interest in languages, inspired no doubt by his father, who had learned to read and write Russian.
One lunch hour in the spring of 1940, Mr. JOHNSTON walked into a Royal Canadian Air Force recruiting station, seeking to become a fighter pilot. He was 18 and had yet to finish Grade 13. Rejected as pilot material for failing to distinguish red dots from green, he enlisted as a foot soldier immediately after graduation. Sent to England, he was accepted for training as a German-speaking interrogator.
By August, 1942, he was under the command of Bill Cooper, of the First Canadian Field Security Section, and joked about being a "Cooper's Snooper." However, at the time, the term referred to investigators from the British Ministry of Information who were charged with measuring the state of the nation's morale and answerable to then-head Sir Duff Cooper, formerly First Lord of the Admiralty. (The Ministry of Information and its Cooper's Snoopers were much parodied in fiction, particularly by Graham Greene in The Ministry of Fear and by Evelyn Waugh in Put Out More Flags.) As the war intensified, Mr. JOHNSTON was sent to the Mediterranean for the invasion of Sicily in July, 1943. Over the next two years, as the Allies slowly captured the remainder of Italy, he scouted the length of the country - mostly on motorcycle - in pursuit of spies, traitors, collaborators, bogus refugees and other suspicious types.
Although hardship, danger and fear were constant, his account of his adventures resembles the Keystone Kops more than James Bond. A case in point were his experiences at Riccione, a town near Rimini on the Adriatic Sea that was still partly occupied by the Germans. Ordered to enter the town to establish a base and put up roadblocks, the event was celebrated in a 1981 Canadian Intelligence and Security book that reported how Mr. JOHNSTON and a friend saved a military police officer's life by shooting a group of armed Germans.
But according to Mr. JOHNSTON, that's not actually what happened. Entering the town, the two men hid their jeep and bedded down for the night in a comfortable house. Their sleep was soon disturbed by a mortar barrage. They fled the house "bare-assed," wearing nothing more than their shirttails, and hid behind a hedge. "We hid because we sensed that the troops marching along the road&hellip were wearing the wrong kind of helmets. We didn't wipe them out because we had nothing to wipe them out with, our armoury having been left upstairs under our beds."
Nevertheless, his intelligence efforts were honoured and Mr. JOHNSON was mentioned in dispatches. Returning home after the war, he enrolled in the University of Toronto, graduating with a degree in modern languages and literature in 1948. One year earlier, on a blind date, he met Valerie FAREWELL, a Toronto teacher. It was love at first sight; the couple soon married and went on to have four children.
As postwar global relations morphed into the Cold War, Mr. JOHNSTON's linguistic skills and professional discretion became increasingly valued. He worked briefly for the communications branch of the National Research Council, then joined the Department of External Affairs (now the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade), where one of his duties was to analyze events in Africa and Cuba. His 1960 assessment of Fidel Castro said he was creating a "nationalist and not a communist government" and that U.S. hostility to the new regime could force the Cuban leader to turn to the Russians for support. Two years later, the Cuban missile crisis erupted.
As a young child, daughter Celia HUNTER remembers her father spending long hours away from home but never mentioning his work. "In Grade 5, we all had to say what our fathers did. I told the teacher mine was a civil servant and she looked at me and said, 'A garbage man?' I just shrugged and said, 'I have no clue.'"
In 1962, the family moved to London, where Mr. JOHNSTON served as counsellor at the Canadian High Commission. Four years later, he filled the same post in Tanzania. On his return to Ottawa, he headed a division of security intelligence where, after four Kafkaesque years of endless meetings, producing reports that no one read and recommending changes that never happened, he suffered what his doctor diagnosed as a "nervous breakdown."
Upon recovery, he accepted a position as counsellor at the Canadian embassy in Japan. But tragedy struck in 1973 when Valerie was hit by a car as she was hailing a taxi in Tokyo. Some time after her death, he married Rosanne HUGHES, an embassy secretary.
Intrigued with the manoeuvrings of global politics, he served as ambassador in various posting until 1983, when he moved to British Columbia and briefly taught history at the University of Victoria.
In his early 80s, he set about recording what he called "fragments" of his life. True to form, Cooper's Snoopers and Other Follies proved to be both politically irreverent and astute. But as the reminiscences of someone who knew a lot about some very interesting goings-on, it is full of gaps. Friend and former intelligence colleague Robert McLaren says Mr. JOHNSTON applied to have another 18 pages of information cleared by Ottawa, but the request was denied.
John Starnes, the first civilian director-general of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Security Service, the author of six spy novels and of the memoir Closely Guarded, was Mr. JOHNSTON's boss at External Affairs.
Although Mr. JOHNSTON often spoke his mind bluntly, "I trusted him completely, and he was dealing on a daily basis with very sensitive, tricky intelligence data," Mr. Starnes said. "He was a remarkable, delightful human being."
Mr. JOHNSTON's interest in world affairs never abated. In his early 70s, he worked as an election monitor in Nicaragua, El Salvador and Angola for the United Nations, and for the Organization of American States. Until recently, he was active in the Victoria branch of the Canadian International Council.
Peter Arthur Edward JOHNSTON was born in Toronto on September 18, 1921. He died February 19, 2008, in Victoria. He was 86. He is survived by his wife, Rosanne JOHNSTON, and by his children Celia, Geoffrey, Stuart and Sarah. He also leaves his sister, Jane Rae, and numerous grandchildren.
