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. Interment was in the Shaarei Zedek Cemetery, Westmorland Road, Saint John, New Brunswick. The family sat shivah at 55 Goodrich Street, Saint John, New Brunswick following the interment. Condolences may be made in person, by phone, or via our website: www.brenansfh.com.

She championed the environment and defeated the 'Harvard Mouse'
Lawyer took on forestry giants to secure sustainable growth and successfully argued against a powerful initiative by the pharmaceutical industry to patent a genetically altered rodent
By Noreen SHANAHAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S10
Toronto -- Michelle SWENARCHUK was a public intellectual. As executive director of the Canadian Environmental Law Association she fought for sustainable development in Northern Ontario's forests. Her work and vision contributed to Canada's most positive environmental footprints, and there is some suggestion that it was she who coined the phrase "environmental crisis."
She also led a successful intervention in the famed Harvard Mouse Case, in which the Supreme Court of Canada ruled on whether medical researchers could patent higher life forms. She participated in negotiations and consultations regarding international laws at the World Trade Organization, the Organization of Economic Development, the International Labour Organization and the North American Commission for Environmental Co-operation.
Michelle SWENARCHUK was the youngest of three children born into a Ukrainian family in Lloydminster, Saskatchewan. As a child, she liked to pedal her bicycle kilometres out of town just for sheer joy and the view of an expanding sky. Her hometown, which straddles the Alberta-Saskatchewan border, had five or six stores, a dragged-down hotel and a handful of grain elevators. Half the population was German Mennonite, the other half English. Including the SWENARCHUKs, there were three Ukrainian families.
Everything changed when, as a teenager, she moved with the rest of her family to nearby Saskatoon. Her world expanded to included antiwar protests, draft dodgers and an emerging social consciousness. Her mother's work as a social worker likely also influenced her, for she was briefly tempted to enter the same profession.
After getting her B.A. in English literature at the University of Saskatchewan, she worked as a de facto social worker in rural Saskatchewan but soon realized that becoming a lawyer would be a more effective career path. She moved to Toronto in the early 1970s to attend Osgoode Hall Law School. There, she found that just 10 per cent of the student body was female, with an even smaller number specializing in labour law, as she did. She was called to the bar in 1976 and opened a practice with Judith McCORMACK, a fellow graduate.
In the early days, she worked primarily with a group of small Canadian unions fighting for the rights of immigrant women, many of whom toiled in the most appalling sweatshop conditions or as building cleaners. The unions were affiliated with the Confederation of Canadian Unions, founded in 1969 by Quebec labour activists Madeleine Parent and Kent Rowley, and were often labelled as communist.
Choosing to work for them wasn't generally thought to be a brilliant career move. "Of course this wasn't exactly high-paying work - or, in some cases, paying work at all," recalled Ms. McCORMACK.
The firm was audited by Revenue Canada twice in the early days. When she asked the auditor why, he told them that they had made so little money they figured the firm must have been a front for a money-laundering operation. "This was a bit like adding insult to penury," said Ms. McCORMACK.
In 1979, Ms. SWENARCHUK moved into a more lucrative position as counsel to the Canadian Union of Professional and Technical Employees. One of her responsibilities was representing civil aviation inspectors at a Royal Commission on aviation safety. Next, she took a position with the Federation of Women's Teachers Associations of Ontario, working on collective bargaining, education and equity policies. In the late 1970s, she joined the National Action Committee on the Status of Women as a member of the employment committee. She became an executive member in 1982 and served under the presidency of Doris Anderson.
But the bonds of sisterhood were sometimes a challenge to negotiate. When Ms. Anderson was National Action Committee president, she confided to fellow executive board members that she didn't want to go to any meetings "where women held hands or hummed." Ms. SWENARCHUK understood this timidity, agreed, and on all accounts the two women shared a great deal of non-hand-holding success. Ms. SWENARCHUK's three strongest mentors were Ms. Parent, Ms. Anderson and research physicist Ursula Franklin. In 2006, she wrote the forward to The Ursula Franklin Reader: Pacifism as a Map.
The late 1980s and early 1990s presented Ms. SWENARCHUK with two hugely significant challenges. They were both personal and professional. First, her daughter Larissa was born in Toronto in 1988; second, after having served a few years as chief counsel to Canadian Environmental Law Association, she became the executive director in 1991. Suddenly, at the same time she was knee deep in diapers, she was also on the nightly news warning people about the state of the environment.
"I remember the first time I laid eyes on Michelle SWENARCHUK," said Karen Clark, senior policy co-ordinator for the Ontario Ministry of the Environment. "She was on television saying things that I had never heard anybody say before. I remember the phrase, 'We're in the middle of an environmental crisis.' She was using that kind of very strong language when very few people were talking like that."
Canadian Environmental Law Association is funded by the Ontario legal aid plan with a mandate to represent environmental groups and low-income individuals affected by environmental problems. In the 1980s, Canadian Environmental Law Association represented a coalition of Northern Ontario environmental groups called Forests for Tomorrow at a landmark hearing into Ontario's timber management program. It was probably the biggest such hearing in Canadian history, with 440 separate hearings covering a four-year period.
"It was mind-boggling - and mind numbing - said Canadian Environmental Law Association's Rick LINDGREN. "And yet, with Michelle as our fearless lead counsel, somehow we survived the ordeal and… achieved some real progress."
Attending the hearings was a gruelling ordeal. Every Monday, Mr. LINDGREN and Ms. SWENARCHUK would fly out of Toronto early in the morning, drop baby Larissa off at Thunder Bay daycare, spend the day at the hearing, pick up Larissa and eat dinner at the house they had rented for the duration. After the dishes were done, Ms. SWENARCHUK would play with her daughter, tell her stories and put her to bed. Then she'd work until the wee hours reading evidence and preparing cross-examination for the next day.
In a Toronto Star column in 1989, Ms. Anderson described one plane ride where 16-month-old Larissa accidentally kicked over the breakfast tray, spraying scrambled egg across the lap of her mother's blue suit. "Two hours later, after a quick clean-up, [Ms. SWENARCHUK] was cross-examining a top government official."
In the end, they got what Forests for Tomorrow wanted: sustainable forestry.
While Ms. SWENARCHUK also served as an advocate for women, trade unionists, aboriginals and immigrant workers, her greatest success - and greatest notoriety - occurred when she argued the Harvard Mouse case at the Supreme Court of Canada. According to Mr. LINDGREN, the matter had arrived at Canadian Environmental Law Association's doorstep just at a time when the struggle for environmental protection was becoming more complex. In addition to being engaged in site-specific battles over such things as dumps, quarries and incinerators, they were becoming increasingly involved in international "mega-cases."
The Harvard rodent was just such a case. Around that time, scientists at Harvard University had modified mice by inserting a gene that caused them to develop cancer. They acquired a patent for the mouse that extended to all non-human life forms. In the process, they applied for a patent in Canada and the resulting litigation eventually ended up before the Supreme Court. At the proceedings, Canadian Environmental Law Association represented itself and six other public-interest groups, including the Canadian Council of Churches, Greenpeace of Canada and the Sierra Club of Canada. In 2002, the court ruled that higher life forms could not be patented in Canada.
It was a staggering success, said Ms. Clark. "For Michelle to have beaten the pharmaceutical industry, that was a signal victory and the organizing point around her life and her work."
It also lay at the root of her beliefs about justice, she said. "It works for you whether you're rich or you're poor, that's what the rule of law is. Michelle believed that very strongly&hellip that was the fight that she was always fighting."
In 2004, Ms. SWENARCHUK was awarded the Law Society of Upper Canada medal for outstanding contributions.
Michelle SWENARCHUK was born in Lloydminster, Saskatchewan, on October 30, 1948. She died of cancer at the Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto on February 27, 2008. She was 59. She leaves daughter Larissa SWENARCHUK, brother Lauren SWENARCHUK, sister Bonnie ZWACK and parents Michael and Janet SWENARCHUK.

LINDSAY, Doctor William Kerr, O.Ont., M.D., B.Sc. (Med.,) M.S., F.R.C.S.C., F.A.C.S.
(3 September 1920-5 February 2008)
Compassionate and caring to everyone he met, Bill LINDSAY passed away peacefully in his 88th year in Toronto. Dearly loved by his wife of 63 years, Peggy (FRANCES,) his children William (Patty,) Barbara (Norm HOTSON,) Katherine (John RILEY) and Anne (John WEYMAN,) and his grandchildren, Jennifer COLLARD (John,) Melissa and James LINDSAY, Brett (Daisy), Kai and Tyler HOTSON, Reed and Julia RILEY, and Tosh, Jesse and Luke WEYMAN. The eldest of five, he was predeceased by his brother Rod and will be remembered with love by his brothers Keith and Barrie and his sister Helen. Bill was born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia. His parents were born near Lochwinnoch and left the Ottawa Valley on the afternoon of their wedding in 1919 on a one-way rail ticket to Vancouver. His father operated the Vancouver Tugboat Company and, by age 12, Bill was working part-time on the tugboats up and down the coast.
An outstanding doctor, educator and researcher, Doctor Bill LINDSAY spent most of his professional life in Toronto as head of the Division of Plastic Surgery at the Hospital for Sick Children. With skilled surgeon's hands, he helped more than 18,000 patients born with cleft lips and palates and congenital deformities of the hand, as well as accident and burn victims. His medical research focused on the healing of flexor tendons in hands, and he authored 126 medical publications. Bill was Professor, Division of Plastic Surgery at the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto for 21 years. The many plastic surgeons who studied with him honoured him by establishing the W.K. Lindsay Club and the annual Lindsay-Thomson Symposium in Paediatric Plastic Surgery. He served in many hospital and academic roles, including President of both the Canadian Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Association of Plastic Surgeons.
Starting in 1990, Bill coordinated Canadian International Development Agency's Canada-China Burn Centre Plastic Surgery Linkage Program, through which he became Honourary head of the Gansu Provincial People's Hospital in Langzhou City. In retirement, he served as medical trustee and advisor to the R.S. McLaughlin and J.P. Bickell foundations. Internationally and in Canada, Bill was widely recognized and, in 2003, was specially pleased to join the Order of Ontario.
For more than 50 years, Bill and Peggy's farm in the hills of Mono has been their beloved retreat. Together, they turned blowing sand into productive land, planting trees, creating ponds and protecting the headwaters and forests, while raising his Angus cattle. His family and many young colleagues joined him for tree-planting week-ends each spring, and with many hands and shovels, many acres were restored. Bill's love of outdoor life was shared with his children and grandchildren

LINDSAY, Doctor William Kerr, O.Ont., M.D., B.Sc. (Med.,) M.S., F.R.C.S.C., F.A.C.S.
(3 September 1920-5 February 2008)
Compassionate and caring to everyone he met, Bill LINDSAY passed away peacefully in his 88th year in Toronto. Dearly loved by his wife of 63 years, Peggy (FRANCES,) his children William (Patty,) Barbara (Norm HOTSON,) Katherine (John RILEY) and Anne (John WEYMAN,) and his grandchildren, Jennifer COLLARD (John,) Melissa and James LINDSAY, Brett (Daisy), Kai and Tyler HOTSON, Reed and Julia RILEY, and Tosh, Jesse and Luke WEYMAN. The eldest of five, he was predeceased by his brother Rod and will be remembered with love by his brothers Keith and Barrie and his sister Helen. Bill was born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia. His parents were born near Lochwinnoch and left the Ottawa Valley on the afternoon of their wedding in 1919 on a one-way rail ticket to Vancouver. His father operated the Vancouver Tugboat Company and, by age 12, Bill was working part-time on the tugboats up and down the coast.
An outstanding doctor, educator and researcher, Doctor Bill LINDSAY spent most of his professional life in Toronto as head of the Division of Plastic Surgery at the Hospital for Sick Children. With skilled surgeon's hands, he helped more than 18,000 patients born with cleft lips and palates and congenital deformities of the hand, as well as accident and burn victims. His medical research focused on the healing of flexor tendons in hands, and he authored 126 medical publications. Bill was Professor, Division of Plastic Surgery at the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto for 21 years. The many plastic surgeons who studied with him honoured him by establishing the W.K. Lindsay Club and the annual Lindsay-Thomson Symposium in Paediatric Plastic Surgery. He served in many hospital and academic roles, including President of both the Canadian Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Association of Plastic Surgeons.
Starting in 1990, Bill coordinated Canadian International Development Agency's Canada-China Burn Centre Plastic Surgery Linkage Program, through which he became Honourary head of the Gansu Provincial People's Hospital in Langzhou City. In retirement, he served as medical trustee and advisor to the R.S. McLaughlin and J.P. Bickell foundations. Internationally and in Canada, Bill was widely recognized and, in 2003, was specially pleased to join the Order of Ontario.
For more than 50 years, Bill and Peggy's farm in the hills of Mono has been their beloved retreat. Together, they turned blowing sand into productive land, planting trees, creating ponds and protecting the headwaters and forests, while raising his Angus cattle. His family and many young colleagues joined him for tree-planting week-ends each spring, and with many hands and shovels, many acres were restored. Bill's love of outdoor life was shared with his children and grandchildren. Farming, fishing, skiing, gardening, horsemanship and beekeeping were learned at his side. Bill was at his farm regularly until the month before his death.
His family would like to extend sincere thanks to all the caregivers who helped Bill remain active and at home these past two years, and to the staff at the Toronto Western Hospital who cared for him the last three weeks. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Plastic Surgery and Burns Research Fund, c/o Dr. C. FORREST, Suite 5430, Hospital for Sick Children, 555 University Avenue, Toronto M5G 1X8. A service celebrating Bill's life will be held at Timothy Eaton Memorial Church in Toronto on Thursday, February 21 at 2 p.m. There will be a spring interment at Relessey Cemetery in Mono.

Toronto surgeon 'changed the face of pediatric plastic surgery forever'
Gifted doctor helped 18,000 patients, mostly children with cleft palates and congenital deformities. He made so many volunteer trips to China that a local hospital named him its honorary head
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Toronto -- William LINDSAY was so devoted to correcting cleft palates that he once performed the procedure on a horse. It was 1965, the patient was a year-old thoroughbred that couldn't eat or nurse properly, and Doctor LINDSAY teamed up with a group of veterinarians from Toronto's Woodbine Race Track who had experience in putting horses under general anesthetic. By this time, Doctor LINDSAY had already acquired a reputation as a gifted plastic surgeon who specialized in cleft palates and other deformities. Special oversized instruments were created for the operation by the Hospital for Sick Children's medical engineering department.
The disorder was repaired and the patient recovered, but she never did race. And in an unusual but perhaps poetic turn of events, Doctor LINDSAY's son, Bill, went on to become a veterinarian specializing in equine surgery (and whose sole regret was that he never got to operate alongside his father).
Dr. LINDSAY, who headed the plastic surgery division at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children from 1958 to 1986 and taught the specialty at the University of Toronto's medical school for two decades, healed an estimated 18,000 patients, mostly children born with cleft lips and palates and congenital deformities of the hand, as well as accident and burn victims.
Remembered as a gentle, even-tempered and self-effacing man, Dr. LINDSAY "changed the face of pediatric plastic surgery forever," wrote Ronald ZUKER, who trained under Doctor LINDSAY and followed his mentor to the University of Toronto and the Hospital for Sick Children, where he, too, performed cleft lip and palate surgery. "His kind and amiable nature was evident in the clinic when the children would run up to sit on his lap. He was a wonderful and empathetic clinician who led by example."
Being detail-oriented may have been one reason he was drawn to plastic surgery, Doctor LINDSAY recalled in his unpublished memoirs. "It's very fine work, done with much smaller instruments than regular surgery, and one can see the results of one's work, as it isn't hidden inside the body."
The eldest of five children, William LINDSAY was born and raised in Vancouver. His parents left the Ottawa Valley on the afternoon of their wedding in 1919 with a one-way rail ticket to the West Coast, where his father operated the Vancouver Tugboat Company. By 12, his son was working part-time on the tugboats up and down the coast. Later, he toiled as a dining-car waiter aboard Canadian National Railway trains.
Idealism and an uncle's influence led him to medicine, and he ranked fifth among 300 students after his first year in pre-med at the U of T. After graduation in 1945, he served briefly in the Royal Canadian Navy, and maintained a general practice in Sudbury, Ontario
On his first night, he was on call and found himself wandering through a bitterly cold and snowy streetscape searching for his first patient. He found the address, and encountered a young woman in labour. "I got to work," he recalled, "interrupted at times by an aggressive chihuahua who deemed it necessary to attack my shoelaces while I attended his mistress."
Dr. LINDSAY hitched his wagon to a rising star in 1949, when he served as a research fellow with Wilfred BIGELOW (obituary, March 30, 2005), who was conducting pioneering experiments on hypothermia as it affected heart function. Doctor BIGELOW had long wondered whether cooling the body could slow blood flow long enough to access the heart.
The two physicians successfully tested that theory on a dog at the Banting Institute. After chilling the anesthetized animal to a body temperature of 20 degrees Celsius, they interrupted cardiac circulation for 15 minutes with clamps and opened the heart. It wasn't beating. With Doctor LINDSAY watching, Doctor BIGELOW tapped the organ tentatively with an electrical probe. All four chambers responded with one convulsive throb. He tapped it again. Another beat. The organ then continued beating without blood - a first - and then with blood. The dog was rewarmed and survived.
The episode led Doctor BIGELOW to think of a device that could deliver a gentle jolt of some sort without damaging the heart, and he went on to develop the first cardiac pacemaker.
Meantime, Doctor LINDSAY had trained in plastic surgery in Toronto, Montreal and Dallas, and joined Sick Kids in 1953. The following year, the hospital established its Cleft Lip and Palate Research and Treatment Centre under his leadership. Today, it is the largest such centre in Canada, with 3,500 patients in active treatment and 175 new patients each year. It combines 16 disciplines.
Dr. LINDSAY was one of the first McLaughlin fellows. He attended the first two awards dinners in 1953 and 1954 and, in an interview with the U of T's magazine, he recalled the fellowship's benefactor, the legendary auto magnate and philanthropist Samuel McLaughlin. "There would be 14 or 16 men sitting at a long, rectangular table. Mr. McLaughlin would be sitting at the middle of one side. He wasn't very tall but he would command and direct conversation throughout dinner magnificently." Doctor LINDSAY noted, however, that in order to do this, Mr. McLaughlin would have to rise to his feet when he had something to say.
In the 1970s, Doctor LINDSAY evaluated the likelihood of success in the replantation of various appendages, including both physical and emotional measures. He found that the most common replantations - in order of frequency - were thumbs, fingers, hands, arms and legs, although the ear, nose, lips, scalp and penis could also be reattached.
He made the first of several trips to China in the early 1980s, when Canada's ambassador to that country asked him to perform cleft lip and palate surgery on children and treat burn victims at the hospital in Lanzhou, in China's northwestern Gansu province. By the early 1990s, the missions were being underwritten by the Canadian International Development Agency.
"Homes were very poor and they were heated with gas heaters," said Doctor LINDSAY's wife of 63 years, Peggy. "These would often turn over and there were a lot of bad burns to both adults and children." The Canadian doctor imparted his wisdom and skills and, in turn, learned a great deal about Chinese medicine, particularly herb-based salves and ointments for burn victims. He never did find out what was in them, as the Chinese couldn't translate their contents into English. "We never knew whether they just didn't want to tell him or really didn't know."
The Chinese hospital was able to build a new wing and, through the efforts of Doctor LINDSAY and Canadian International Development Agency, it received an anesthetic machine, a respirator, a burn bed and an electric dermatome, a machine used to produce large sheets of skin from a donor area. In gratitude, Doctor LINDSAY was named honorary head of the Gansu Provincial People's Hospital.
A great believer in research, he conducted explorations into tendon healing, which led to a special clinical interest in congenital and traumatic hand surgery. A group of his research fellows formed the Chicken Tendon Club.
Nicknamed the Silver Fox for his characteristic grey hair, he served as president of the Canadian Society of Plastic Surgeons in 1964-1965 and of the American Association of Plastic Surgery in 1970-1971. He was also active in the formation of the Bloorview-MacMillan Treatment Centre (formerly Hugh MacMillan Treatment Centre and originally the Ontario Crippled Children's Centre). A quadruple heart bypass operation around 1980 slowed him down, but not much. In 2003, he was named to the Order of Ontario.
He was happiest providing comfort and hope to thousands of children, but a close second was his time spent at the family farm, called Skytop, north of Hockley Valley. An eco-friendly farmer and environmentalist before those were popular, Doctor LINDSAY planted trees and created ponds while raising Angus cattle. His family and many young colleagues joined him for tree-planting weekends each spring. At his side, his grandchildren learned farming, fishing, skiing, gardening, horsemanship and beekeeping. He was at the farm regularly until the month before his death.
William Kerr LINDSAY was born in Vancouver on September 3, 1920. He died of congestive heart failure in Toronto on February 5, 2008. He was 87. He is survived by his wife of 63 years, Peggy (FRANCES,) children William, Barbara, Katherine and Anne, and 11 grandchildren.

Fiddler was a prolific composer and performer with a style all his own
Hateful of the violin as a child, he defied calls to conform and chose to blend such traditions as country, jazz, folk, South Asian and Scandinavian. 'I don't write music,' he said in 1999. 'I catch it as it goes by'
By Gay ABBATE, Page A12
Oliver SCHROER arrived home from high school one day to find his mother vacuuming while listening to Pink Floyd music. "Hey Mom, how can I rebel if you keep listening to my records?" he asked. But rebel he did. The gifted Canadian fiddler and composer refused to be bound by what he considered the restrictions of classical instruction and, most importantly, by the limits of any one musical genre. Through his rebellion, he took contemporary fiddling music to a whole new level. "He opened up a whole new range of possibilities," said musician Anne LINDSAY, who played second fiddle in Mr. SCHROER's band, Stewed Tomatoes.
To Grit Laskin, co-founder of the Canadian Folk Music Awards, Mr. SCHROER was the ultimate musician. "His playing style of music was unique. It was his own style and physically what he did with his bow technique and the kind of rhythms and structure in the music he wrote - there was nobody else like him."
The Globe's music critic, Robert EVERETT- GREEN, referred to Mr. SCHROER's style as a "fusion of Ontario's fiddling traditions with the kind of architectural, string-crossing music of Bach's solo violin works."
For his part, Mr. SCHROER considered the violin more than a musical wooden box. "I think of my violin as a vibration generator, a drum, a sex partner, a confidant," he wrote. "We dance, we tell each other secrets, we pray. We make music."
A prodigious composer and music producer, as well as a master of the acoustic violin, Mr. SCHROER received eight Juno nominations during his 25-year career. He wrote more than 1,000 musical pieces, recorded nine CDs of his own compositions and produced 30 CDs for other artists. He also performed on more than 100 albums of new traditional, acoustic and popular music by other musicians. He recorded with such artists as composers Jimmy Webb and Barry Mann, singers James Keelaghan and Sylvia Tyson, acoustic guitarists Jesse Cook and Don Ross, and the groups Great Big Sea and Spirit of the Wind.
His most recent collaboration was with his childhood friend, the classical guitarist Liona BOYD. In late April, he played on two tracks of her new CD, to be released this fall. "He was an inspired musician," said Ms. BOYD. " Music reflects the soul of a person. You could tell he was a deep, sensitive person."
Mr. SCHROER was very iconoclastic and a global person from a cultural point of view, said his brother André SCHROER. Oliver SCHROER defied calls to conform, choosing to blend many musical traditions, including country, jazz, folk, South Asian and Scandinavian. "He was a very complex individual who in one way skewed authority and bombast but still had one foot in traditions."
Mr. SCHROER took little credit for his unique music. In his view, he merely kept his ears open to the wind. "I don't write music," he told The Globe and Mail in 1999. "I catch it as it goes by. It's all floating by for the taking."
Oliver SCHROER was born the third of four children of Hendryk and Irene SCHROER, German immigrants who had arrived in Canada in 1954. When Oliver was 10, his father, who worked in sales and management, decided to uproot his young family to the countryside. They settled in Markdale, Ontario, a village located in the Beaver Valley about 30 kilometres south of Georgian Bay and about 150 kilometres north of Toronto. It was while growing up in Markdale that he first met Ms. BOYD, who lived nearby with her family.
By then Oliver was already a budding musician, having played the recorder since he was 6. When he was 8, his parents switched him to the violin, which he did not enjoy playing and took every opportunity to get out of practising, including making a tape of the scales and exercises. "When my mother told me to go upstairs and practice, I would go into my room and play the tape," he wrote last year, after finally admitting his pretense to his mother.
Meanwhile, his parents were not musicians but they had an appreciation for classical music and resolved to expose their children to it. For a time, the only window to popular culture the children had was a weekly dose of The Wonderful World of Disney on television. Oliver's first intimate contact with popular music was when he was 12 and a friend of his older brother brought over a copy of the Beatles album, Abbey Road. His 16th birthday brought significant changes that would further expand his musical horizon: his father gave him a guitar, acknowledging his son was not interested in the violin. Later, Oliver went to Quebec on a student-exchange program and was exposed to the music of Frank Zappa, Jethro Tull and James Taylor - all of which he greedily soaked up. The guitar was his instrument of choice even after he enrolled in philosophy at the University of Toronto. There, he discovered the jazz music of Chick Corea and Lenny Breau.
It took 10 years for him to graduate from university. He never really settled to his studies and instead took time off for other pursuits. He bounced through a series of office jobs and played for a time with a country swing group called the Treverston Band. His first gig in 1982 earned him $30.
His violin, meanwhile, remained neglected on a shelf until the night a girlfriend persuaded him to learn square dancing. He took along his violin and was surprised to find a fiddler and guitarist playing for the class. The musicians introduced him to Irish and French-Canadian fiddling. He didn't learn much about square dancing because he spent most of his time jamming with the band. It was the beginning of his love affair with an instrument he had previously loathed.
He abandoned the guitar and took up the violin - this time an acoustic violin he painted blue - with one of the musicians he had met at the square-dancing class. One night, while playing in Eastern Ontario, he had a revelation that music was to be his life's work - not the law or academia as he had expected. "I hadn't ever had that thought before in that same way. This time it was for real," he once wrote. "If I could just do that, I would be so satisfied."
In 1987, he and a friend formed a jazz group called Eye Music. The quartet met with some success and was invited to play at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland the following year. In the early nineties he formed Stewed Tomatoes, which played across Canada and in venues ranging from small pubs to New York's Lincoln Centre. For a time, the group served as the house band on Stewart McLean's Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio program, The Vinyl Café.
In 1993, Mr. SCHROER established his credentials on the Canadian music scene with his first album, Jigzup. It was won rave reviews and earned him his first Juno nomination.
His best known solo albums are Camino and Hymns and Hers. The music for Camino was recorded in churches during a 2004 hike of the 1,000-kilometre-long Camino de Santiago, an ancient pilgrimage route which meanders through the Pyrenees mountain region of France and Spain. For two months, he and friend Peter COFFMAN stopped at any church or chapel along the way that seemed acoustically promising. Mr. SCHROER would unpack his portable recording studio, take out the violin he carried wrapped in his sleeping bag and begin playing. For his part, Mr. COFFMAN recorded the adventure through photography. His pictures form a 28-page booklet that accompanies the album. Often while recording, Mr. SCHROER would have unforeseen accompaniment, such as the sound of children playing or people laughing. At one location in France, while playing The Lord's Prayer, the church clock started chiming. "I couldn't believe the fortune of that happening," Mr. SCHROER told the Globe in 2006.
Hymns and Hers followed Camino and shares some of the same deep emotion, although the sound is very different. Recorded after Mr. SCHROER was diagnosed with leukemia in early 2007, the album is a collection of introspective ensemble pieces, "Hymns and Hers is one of the most stunning records I've ever heard," said Mr. Laskin.
Mr. SCHROER's style of playing was as distinctive as his music. Four years of busking long hours in Toronto's subway stations resulted in tendinitis, a condition that has ended many a promising musical career. After taking a nine-month hiatus, during which he started composing music, he changed the way he held his bow.
In the process he discovered he could produce exquisite music, so he kept playing that way, said jazz singer and actress Michele George, a friend for 25 years. "He took something you could look at as negative and saw how it could work to take him further into a new way of making music and a way to hear music that wouldn't have happened had it not been for the tendinitis."
Mr. SCHROER's large stature in the music world was matched his physical appearance. Standing 6 feet 6 inches, with his mohawk, goatee and designer frames, he did not conform to most people's image of a fiddler. He enjoyed being outrageous and changed his hairstyle frequently for effect, his brother said. The mohawk was the favourite look. His goatee grew back bushier than ever. Over the past year, he would wear clogs - one red and one orange - just to startle people, his brother said.
Mr. COFFMAN said his friend was a wise man, but could also be silly, mischievous and goofy. Most of all he was inspiring. "He just made you want to go out and do great stuff. He was one of those rare people who expand your sense of what is possible."
Part of Mr. SCHROER's legacy is Twisted String, a project he launched about seven years ago with the idea of teaching young violinists. He was living and teaching in Vancouver and started the group after going to Smithers, British Columbia, to conduct a violin workshop. Smithers is located about halfway between Prince George and Prince Rupert, which means it is a 14-hour drive from Vancouver. As such, the children there would never have been exposed to a musician like Mr. SCHROER, said Emilyn STAM, who was one of his first students. Other artists, such as Miss BOYD, later followed in his footsteps to Smithers.
Mr. SCHROER taught his students that nothing was too crazy or wrong when playing the violin. "He told us to embrace any mistake and to turn it into something cool," Ms. STAM said.
He became a father figure for many of the students, and mentored them all as though they were his own children. "He taught us how to live life," she added.
Since then the original group has grown and several of his original students, including Ms. STAM, are now not only leading Twisted String but also establishing new groups elsewhere in the country. Some have gone on to form their own bands.
About two years ago, Mr. SCHROER was diagnosed with myelodysplasia, a condition that inevitably leads to the leukemia that developed early last year. He moved back to Toronto to be near Friends and family, and to undergo chemotherapy. It was later learned that the cancer had spread to his spine.
Mr. SCHROER did not let the disease slow him down. During his chemotherapy treatment, he composed 59 musical pieces, one for each of his students in Smithers. Each tune had the person's name in the title and totally fit each kid's personality, Ms. STAM said. The tunes make up Smithers, his final CD, which he sent to each student at Christmas.
His last public performance was on June 5 in Toronto on what he dubbed the Last Concert on the Tour of the Planet. He played one solo to a standing-room-only crowd of 800 people.
He continued to work even as the end drew near. Doctors and nurses in Unit 14A at Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto let him bring in a piano and other recording equipment into his room so he and his Friends could work, Ms. George said.
A final message to Friends and fans which he posted on his website reveals that he had come to terms with his pending end on this Earth. "Some people live very intensely and burn very brightly during their time here. I think I am one of those people. A shining star while I am here. So I look at my life as I have lived it, and I feel very satisfied with all I have achieved and gone through."
Oliver SCHROER was born June 18, 1956, in Toronto. He died July 3, 2008, of leukemia at Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto. He was 52. He leaves his mother Irene, brothers André and Ansgar and sister Martina.
A celebration of Mr. SCHROER's life and music is being planned for early September. Details will be posted on his website: http://www.oliverschroer.com.
