WARD, Tim
In memory of our son, brother and grand_son, Tim, who left us 17 years ago, February 19, 1991 (our Valentine).
There is a family who misses you dearly,
In a home where you used to be.
There is a family who wanted to keep you,
But God willed it not to be.
You left many happy memories,
And a sorrow too great to be told,
But to us who loved and lost you
Your memory will never grow old
If all the world was ours to give,
We would give it all and more,
To see your smiling face again,
Come walking through the door.
We miss you, Tim.
- Too loved to be forgotten, Mom, Dad, Jamie and Grandma JOHNSTON.

JOHNSTON, Mervin
In loving memory of a dear Father, and Grandfather who passed away April 16, 2007.
A year has come and gone, it still seems like yesterday since you've gone. I find I want to call, to get your opinion on something. But instead I have to turn to older siblings, who have your wisdom from the past
You may be gone, but you will never leave our thoughts or hearts.
- Love always, Kevin, Jennifer, Kayla, Dakota and Cheyanne.

We bless the years we had with them
And leave the rest to God.

WHITE/WHYTE, Patric Jon " Ric Chip"
I would like to take this time to say "Thank You". But a simple "Thank You" doesn't come close to expressing the gratitude I feel for all the support that I have received from family and Friends. It's in difficult times like these that we realize just how many Friends we have, and how much they really mean to us. Throughout his life, Ric has touched so many people with, his genuine smile, his laugh, his jokes, his stories, his generosity, and quick impulse to help anyone or any cause that came along. One of Ric's most important accomplishments in life was the many Friends he acquired along the way. The respect and final farewell that all of you gave him will never be forgotten. Just as I'm certain that Ric will never be forgotten, because there will always be a part of him in all our hearts. I would like to extend a special thank you to- Dennis and Sheila JOYCE, Renaye and Bernice MYERS, Joe SANTOS, Wayne HAUSER and Karen CURRAH, Gary BROOKS, Ted and Kathy JOHNSTON, Wayne HENDERSON, Pete and Gloria PALMER, Tracy TRUDELL, Kathy CRAWFORD, Christine McAULEY, Reverend J. WHITE/WHYTE, Bill DENNING, Saint Mary's Church, West Elgin Legion and everyone who brought food, sent flowers, sent cards and emails and telephoned. A very special thank you to Hostess Frito Lay and the person(s) who arranged for the "Chip Truck" to be at the church on the day of the funeral. It was a befitting tribute and goodbye to Ric "Chip", who took great pride in his job and who had fond attachments to everyone associated with it. From Branika Savic and the family of Ric "Chip" Whyte.

JOHNSTON o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2008-03-25 published
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.

BOYD, Richard Norman, M.D., F.R.C.S.
(June 5, 1944-March 29, 2008)
It is with overwhelming grief that the family of Doctor Richard BOYD announces his death at age 63 on Saturday, March 29, 2008 after a heart attack and a stroke. Rick took his last breath held lovingly by his family and close Friends Doctor Frank DEMARCO and Doctor Tom ELSDON. Rick deeply loved, and was loved by, his wife of nearly 40 years, Jane (JOHNSTON,) and cherished his sons David Richard and Andrew Macartney. Rick adored his beautiful 'daughters' Kristen (SKINNER) and Lindsay (GRAY/GREY.) He was predeceased by his loving parents Doctor Norman and Barbara BOYD, and father-in-law Robert 'Mac' JOHNSTON. He will be profoundly missed by his mother-in-law Olive JOHNSTON. Left to mourn are his sisters Judy MANNING, Mary HOPKINS (Ed DAVEY) and Heather MUNRO (Bob,) his aunt Dorothy SEARLE, brother and sister-in-laws Dick and Jane JOHNSTON, cousins, nieces and nephews, and a legion of Friends. He was predeceased by his loyal Bichon Frises, Bijoux and Beaumont. Doctor BOYD graduated from the University Of Western Ontario Medical School in 1968. He obtained his Specialist Fellowship in Urology from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1976, and has since then practiced Urological Surgery in Windsor. He previously served as Chief of Surgery, and was currently head of Urology, at the Windsor Regional Hospital. He was one of the founders of the prostate cancer Bracytherapy programme at the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre. In recent years he has also served the community as a Provincial Coroner for Essex County. Rick was a member of the Alpha Kappa Kappa medical fraternity. An athlete, Rick ran 27 marathons around the world with a personal best of 2: 48 in Chicago. He curled in the Ontario Medical Association bonspiels, and was an avid golfer and scholar of golf history. He was a member of the Donald Ross Society. He was currently the very proud President of Essex Golf and Country Club. Rick was a skilled clinician and diagnostician, and a gentle man who exhibited great kindness to his patients. He had twinkling blue eyes, a mischievous smile and a wonderfully wicked sense of humour. Rick's prize orchids are especially beautiful this spring. Our family thanks the medical community, both doctors and nurses, who supported Rick in area hospitals over the years, and especially Ruth Anne PIETTE and Staci LEMIEUX who loyally kept his office organized in spite of him. We thank the doctors and nurses at Windsor Regional and Hotel Dieu Grace Hospitals who so valiantly tried to save him: Doctor Rob WOODALL, Doctor Anthony GLANZ, Doctor Hash PATEL, Doctor Natalie MALUS and Doctor Balraj JHAWAR, who over five difficult days demonstrated extraordinary skill, as well as great compassion and love to our family. Thank you to Carol DERBYSHIRE and Steve BRENNAN from the Hospice of Windsor; Pat BEST, Paula DEEHAN- SCHMIDT and Chaplain Joyce JARDIN from Hotel Dieu Grace Hospital; Kim VAN ALLEN and Bishop Bob BENNETT from All Saints' Church; and our community for enveloping our family in love and prayers as we ran with Rick on his last marathon. Always one to put others first, and ever the healer, Rick has made four gifts of life. His two corneas will go to enhance sight, and, ironically the "perfect urologist kidneys" will give life and hope to two patients. In order to give back to our community which Rick so loved, we ask that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to organizations that were so a part of his life: Hospice of Windsor for care of men with prostate cancer; All Saints' Anglican Church; Windsor Regional Hospital for a Cystoscopy suite; Windsor Regional Cancer Centre for the Prostate Brachytherapy Program; and Essex Golf and Country Club for a croquet pitch and garden in his name. Visiting will be held at the Walter D. Kelly Funeral Home and Cremation Centre, 1969 Wyandotte St. E. On Monday and Tuesday from 1-4 p.m. and 5-8 p.m. The Funeral Service will be held at All Saints' Anglican Church, 330 City Hall Square on Wednesday, April 2, 2008 at 11: 00 a.m. Cremation to follow.
