BARR never wavered from his desire to become doctor
By Jenni DUNNING, Sun., July 20, 2008
Dr. David BARR didn't have it easy.
A hemophiliac with a progressive form of muscular dystrophy, he had to work twice as hard to become a doctor -- a longtime goal.
BARR died July 3 from heart failure related to muscular dystrophy, a genetic condition that slowly weakens muscles.
He was 52.
He's survived by his wife, Sarah, daughter Victoria and mother Evelyn.
"He was the epitome of stick-to-it-ness and drive and where it can get you," said friend Ben MILLER.
BARR was born in Trail, British Columbia, and moved around Canada with his Salvation Army minister parents, eventually settling in London.
He applied to medical school each year he attended university, but he figured he was turned down because of his illnesses.
"He wasn't going to take 'no' for an answer. He was ready to step out and do something," MILLER said.
BARR received five degrees and diplomas in the 1970s and '80s, before being accepted into the McMaster University medical school.
These include a bachelor of science from the University of Western Ontario, an honours degree in physiology and pharmacology, and a master's in business administration from McMaster.
In his time off, BARR worked with missionaries in Africa, and raised thousands of dollars to send packages of medical supplies there.
He later opened a family practice in Walkerton, shortly before the E. coli tragedy of 2000.
MILLER said he often uses stories of BARR's determination to inspire his own children.
"He just wanted to be a doctor. That focus amazed me," said MILLER, who knew BARR in his teenage years and early 20s.
"You'd call his house and he'd answer, 'Dr. BARR.'
He wanted to be a doctor ever since age four, said his mother, Evelyn BARR.
"It was just one thing he wanted to be, and that's all. He never, ever changed his mind."
BARR was devastated when he had to give up his medical practice a few years ago as his muscles deteriorated, she said.
In his last couple of years, BARR was bedridden and couldn't move his hands, arms or legs.
"He says, 'You know, I can't do anything, nothing.' And here he was only 52, in the prime of life," said Evelyn. "He never complained. That's the only time he ever said that anything was hard."
BARR's father and brother also died from muscular dystrophy, and his sister has the condition.
BARR didn't talk much about his illnesses with Friends, said Monty MITCHELL, who knew him for about 40 years.
MITCHELL said BARR was so focused on his goals that not many people knew his adventurous side.
"David was always full of life. (He) was a lively young man," he said, adding BARR had a great love of the outdoors.
The pair went camping in Ipperwash and rode motorcycles. BARR also took adventure trips, such as whitewater rafting.
He also loved books, MITCHELL said, noting his favourite collection of non-fiction books with gold-lined pages.
"He was voracious for knowledge. You could take any topic and David would be just like a library of information."
BARR even studied his own X-rays when he started getting sicker.
"He really was a very rare kind of guy. I was privileged having him as a friend," MITCHELL said.

In loving memory of Richard, July 23, 2005 and Betty CURRAH, November 10, 1987. Little we knew that morning, That God was going to call you home, In life we loved you both dearly, In death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you both, But you did not go alone, For part of us went with you, The day God called you home. You both left us wonderful memories, Your love is still our guide, Although we cannot see you, You're always by our side. Our family chain is broken, And nothing seems the same, As God calls us one by one, The family chain will link again. With love from the entire Mitchell family. Mom, Dad, sister, brothers, nieces and nephews.

Bruce was a Prisoner of War for the last few months of the war. He truly appreciated the lifelong Friends he made from his adventures. Bruce demonstrated exceptional grace during his final years, living with Parkinson's. He was a gentleman, genuinely interested in people, forever active and curious about the world, humble about himself, and in Pauline's words, "always so much fun". We shall all miss him dearly.

Mercurial bag-carrier teased greatness from unproven professionals
Canadian caddie's genius - and foibles - were chronicled in a bestselling book about the P.G.A. tour's wild side
By Robert THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S10
Toronto -- There was always a dichotomy to the life of Steve DUPLANTIS.
On one hand, the PGA Tour caddie from Brampton, Ontario, was known as one of the best at his trade, a man who could elicit top performances from the players whose bags he carried. He worked with several of the best and brightest on golf's premier stage for 15 years, working for players such as Jim Furyk, Rich Beem, Daniel Chopra and Tommy Armour III. Through his guidance, leadership and sheer determination, Mr. DUPLANTIS led several players to the top performances of their careers.
"He was one of the better caddies," said Mr. Armour, who used the Canadian's services when he set the tour's 72-hole scoring record in 2003. "That's why he kept getting hired. He was very confident with what he said."
On the other hand, although Mr. DUPLANTIS was all focus on the course, his life away from golf was anything but. He married his first wife, an exotic dancer, in 1995 after knowing her for just 19 days. He proposed to his second wife while still married to the first, and his predilection for a good time often led him to turn up late for tee times - then have to search for a new job.
However, his talent for elevating the play of those he worked with was undeniable, and once on the course, he could distance himself from the distractions.
"He was a throwback," said tour caddie Patrick Smith. "He raised the level of every player he worked for. He could take guys who were marginal and they would play well."
Mr. DUPLANTIS was drawn to the game of golf early in his life. As a junior member at North Halton Golf and Country Club in Georgetown, Ontario, the young golfer would often play from daybreak to dusk. When he wasn't playing, he could be found at the range, pounding ball after ball.
"He'd play 36 holes a day in weather that was below freezing and then complain that he only got in 36 before he lost feeling in his hands and toes," John MITCHELL, his mother's ex-husband, told Sports Illustrated columnist Alan Shipnuck.
His passion for the game and self-confidence led Mr. DUPLANTIS to chase a scholarship to the United States, although he wasn't a blue-chip prospect. He got a partial scholarship to Spartanburg Methodist in South Carolina, playing two years. "Maybe I wasn't as great as I wanted to be," he once said. "But I loved it."
It was in 1993, his sophomore year at Spartanburg, that Mr. DUPLANTIS was bit by the caddie bug. At the Greater Greenville Classic on the Nike Tour, he became reacquainted with Clarence Rose, a PGA Tour journeyman he had first met at the Canadian Open some years previous. Mr. Rose didn't have a regular caddie and asked Mr. DUPLANTIS whether he was interested. Mr. DUPLANTIS worked so well that Mr. Rose asked him to stay on for the summer, including caddying in a PGA Tour event that earned the rookie bag carrier $600 (U.S.).
Mr. Rose stopped playing at the end of the summer, and Mr. DUPLANTIS decided to forgo school and try to make his way as a professional caddie. In 1994, lacking a regular job, he encountered upstart PGA Tour pro Jim Furyk at the Anheuser-Busch Golf Classic. Mr. Furyk asked him to carry his bag that week and finished 10th, earning Mr. DUPLANTIS $2,000 and a regular job.
"He was a very likable person," Mr. Furyk said. "He had a way about him and a charisma."
As Mr. Furyk's star rose - including wins in 1995 and 1996 - Mr. DUPLANTIS began to develop a reputation for leading a wild life away from his day job. At a tournament in Texas, he met Vicki, a woman he would later refer to as a "titty dancer," and married her a couple of weeks later. She was pregnant soon afterward and gave birth to a daughter, Sierra, in 1996. Within a year, the couple were in the midst of a divorce and an ugly custody battle.
While his personal life was in disarray, his player became a big name on the PGA Tour. Mr. DUPLANTIS caddied for him at 1997 Ryder Cup in Spain, as well as at golf's four major tournaments.
But the distractions in his personal life began taking a toll. Mr. Furyk said his caddie was late "maybe a dozen times. Maybe two dozen. It all blends together." Despite earning huge sums, the tardiness eventually forced Mr. Furyk to fire him in 1999.
Mr. DUPLANTIS didn't stay down long. In May, only months after being fired by Mr. Furyk, he was on the bag for a former cellphone salesman turned PGA Tour pro named Rich Beem. Coming into the Kemper Open, Mr. Beem was floundering, having missed five straight cuts. But that week, with Mr. DUPLANTIS urging him on and keeping him focused, Mr. Beem won the tournament. Announcer Ken Venturi called Mr. DUPLANTIS's work that week one of best caddie performances in history.
The partnership with Mr. Beem didn't last long, however. The two parted ways before the year was finished.
"He was a hell of a caddie at times and other times he was sometimes difficult to get along with," Mr. Beem said. "That's the nature of this business."
Mr. DUPLANTIS's life, warts and all, as well as his time with Mr. Furyk and Mr. Beem, was captured in Bud, Sweat and Tees, a book by Mr. Shipnuck. Released in 2001, it became a bestseller after Mr. Beem won the 2002 PGA Championship.
Through the challenges, Mr. DUPLANTIS displayed an unflagging desire to keep working.
"He just really loved everything about the game," said Ted McIntyre, editor of Ontario Golf, a magazine to which the caddie contributed as a columnist for several years. "He could be maddening, but when he delivered, it was always worth waiting for."
He worked everything from the LPGA Tour to the PGA Tour's dreaded qualifying school, six gruelling rounds played on consecutive days. In the second stage of 2005 Q-School, he carried the bag of John Maginnes, a journeyman pro on his last legs. Even though Mr. Maginnes was struggling to find some magic in his declining game, he found Mr. DUPLANTIS's instinct for the game to be exhilarating.
"He would talk you through the shot before you hit it, visualizing it right along with you," Mr. Maginnes said. "I never discovered the origin of Stevie's insight but it was apparent in his approach to the game. He couldn't realize that although I could see the shot we discussed, execution was another matter all together. But for the first time in a long time, I was excited about playing, if only for a moment."
He spent most of 2007 caddying for rising Swedish star Daniel Chopra, including a start at the Canadian Open in Markham, Ontario, where Mr. Chopra missed the cut. Family Friends say he seemed almost not to be working the weekend last July, and spent time with his daughter and family Friends. He stayed in Toronto for a short period after the Canadian Open, playing in a fundraising tournament and demonstrating his golfing prowess by taking the prize for longest drive.
At the start of the 2008 PGA Tour year, he found himself with yet another new golfer - Eric Axley, who had appeared to be on the rise in 2006 before struggling throughout 2007. It appeared to be a good match - another golfer who might fulfill his potential with the help of a savvy caddie. They were set to play the Buick Invitational, the fourth event of the PGA Tour season, in late January, when he stepped in front of a taxi and was killed.
"Am I shocked by this? No," Mr. Armour told reporters. "I tried several times to get him some help. And I told him in 2003, 'Bud, if you don't change, you're going to die a tragic death.' "
Despite his unpredictable disposition, it was his ability to get the best from others that kept those around him hoping he'd change his ways.
"He was a real charmer," Mr. McIntyre said. "Guys like Steve don't come around very often. He always found a way to make the golfers he worked for better. It was on the course that he always shined."
Steve DUPLANTIS was born in Brampton, Ontario, on September 20, 1972. He died after being struck by a taxi in Del Mar, California., on January 23, 2008. He was 35. He leaves mother Sandra and her husband Denis CANTIN; father Steve and his wife Jackie; brother Danny, sister Amy and brother-in-law Chris NORBURY, plus grandparents Dorothy and Art BILTON.
He also leaves daughter, Sierra - donations to her trust fund can be made payable to the Sierra Duplantis Trust Fund, care of the

SANDERS, Marie (formerly McCULLOCH, née WILSON)
By Barbara McCulloch MITCHELL and Alison SMYTH, Page L8
Lawyer, company president, golfer, world traveller, bank director. Born March 24, 1909, in Toronto. Died August 18, 2007, in Toronto of old age, aged 98.
When Marie WILSON married R.J.P. McCULLOCH six decades ago, our family became acquainted with a wonderful and highly educated woman who seemed a combination of fairy princess and liberated modern businesswoman.
Marie was an only child, born in Toronto to Albert Edward WILSON and Marie TROTTER. Her father was founder of A.E. Wilson and Co. Ltd. She was brought up graciously at her parents' home in Rosedale, the same house where she ended her days last year.
In 1912, when she was 3, Marie's father opened her first bank account with Bank of Nova Scotia. She would later sit on the bank's board as a director.
Marie was educated at Bishop Strachan School and went to the University of Toronto. She graduated from Osgoode Hall Law School in 1935.
She practised civil law until her father became sick with Alzheimer's disease, thrusting the governance of his successful insurance company onto her shoulders. She became vice-president and later president upon her father's death in 1959. She rose to the challenge, successfully remaining at the company's helm until she sold it upon her retirement in the early 1980s.
Marie had numerous accomplishments throughout her life, and eventually was made a Queen's Counsel.
In her youth, she excelled in athletics. She was a keen badminton player and an avid golfer, a love that continued throughout her life.
Fluent in French, Marie was a regular visitor at Cap d'Antibes, France, and in later years spent winters in Palm Beach, Florida, at The Breakers hotel.
To our family, Marie was a refined lady who could balance the old world of her parents with the modern world of commerce and the demands of high society. She and Doctor McCULLOCH were married from 1948 until his death in 1954.
In 1977, Marie married Toronto lawyer Richard SANDERS in Palm Beach. Marie and Dick loved to entertain, dance and take long walks through Rosedale holding hands. Every year, they hosted a neighbourhood invitational golf tournament at the nine-hole putting green they had installed on their front lawn. Any visit to their house or an invitation to one of their many private clubs almost always included champagne cocktails - Marie's signature drink.
Dick died in 2001, and Marie continued to live in her childhood home.
She had style and grace, and her loyalty, family contributions, intellect and pioneering spirit will never be forgotten. We raise our glass in honour of Marie and toast her with a champagne cocktail.
Barbara McCulloch MITCHELL and Alison SMYTH are Marie's relatives.

COX, Nel (née HILL)
Passed away peacefully at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre on Monday, March 3, 2008 after a brief illness. She was predeceased by her beloved husband Herbert H. COX, and is survived by her children Joanne and Brock RONDEAU, Brian and Marsha COX and Bill COX and Georgia GUENTHER; by her grandchildren and (great-grandchildren) Colin and Julie MITCHELL (Cameron,) Kara and Yuri MacHADO (Sierra,) Jason and Janine COX (Stephen and Christopher), Megan and Andrew SHAW (Paige and Taylor,) Ben and Suzanne COX (Ethan and Ella,) and Paul COX. Nel was born in Field, British Columbia, the daughter of George and Mabel HILL, and younger sister of Jo GORANSON. Her active outdoor childhood, among her beautiful mountains, included hiking, riding, skiing, golf, and other sports. On a trip east to Malartic Goldfields to visit her sister, she met and married Herbert H. COX, mine manager. Together they enjoyed life in a small mining community with their three children. Nel always loved children and taught Sunday school and theatre. In 1957 they moved to Lawrence Park, Toronto, and later enjoyed retirement at Muir Park Condos. They celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary surrounded by family at their favourite Granite Club, where they played bridge, curled, and bowled. Herb died in 1991 but Nel continued to live independently at Muir Park until the last few days of her life. She loved to socialize, but her increasing deafness and, more recently, her failing eyesight, made it difficult for her to communicate. In her nineties she had such wonderful recall, she was able to publish a book of her memoirs. Always proudly independent, as her hearing declined she took a night school course in lip reading and carried on. Nel was the matriarch of her family - a confidant of each of her grandchildren and Great Nana to her eight grandchildren. She always had time to listen and was never short of support for her family's hopes and dreams. The family expresses their heartfelt gratitude for the professional and caring support of Doctor Rob FOWLER and the nursing team at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre.

CAMPBELL, D. Ralph, C. M, DFC and Bar, M.A., LLD, DCL, D.Sc., F.A.I.C., F.C.A.E.S.
(November 14, 1918-March 13, 2008)
son of the late Fred and Pearl CAMPBELL of Foxboro, Ontario, beloved husband of Ruth, daughter of the late William and Mabel HERON of Brooklin, Ontario. Father of Hugh (Darla) Stoney Creek, Catherine (Hugh) Wakefield, P.Q., Elizabeth (Don MITCHELL) Brooklin, and stepfather of Patricia PETERSON (Eric,) of Don MITCHELL, and of Carolyn HALL (Robert) Port Perry. Grandfather of Ian, Robert, Brian, Julia, Christopher, Laura, Eric, Carrie, Shelley, Rachel, and Rebecca. Great-grandfather of Eliot and Victoria. Predeceased by first wife, Joy, in 1975. Ralph was born on the family farm at Foxboro in November, 1918. Upon graduation from Stirling High School in 1937 he became a full time farmer with his parents for the next five years. The family farm became noteworthy for its Holstein herd and for winning the provincial championship in oat production. Ralph became volunteer organizer for Hastings County Farm Radio Forums and aided four of them to found the Foxboro Co-operative, which still operates successfully after 67 years, and he participated in creating the first Hastings County Federation of Agriculture and its associated marketing boards. Ralph enlisted as a pilot-in-training and subsequently was awarded the D.F. C and Bar as an Royal Air Force bomber pilot after several life-threatening incidents in European skies. On return to Canada he became a student at University of Toronto (1946-49), then Rhodes Scholar at Oxford (1949-51) and graduated with a 'first' from Balliol College, Oxford. He became a Lecturer in the Dept of Ag. Econ. at Ontario Agricultural College, Guelph, in 1951 and Professor and the head of Department (1952-62). The Department of Ag. Econ. became an integrated home of high quality members and developed a large and stimulating graduate program. He was chosen as Hon. Pres. by three 'years' of students and counts many members of these years to be his very closest Friends. Beside exceptional Friendship with members of year '57 and '59, Ralph was a 'people person' with Friends in almost every county in Ontario. He became Ford Foundation adviser to the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan (1962-64) and acting leader of planning, backed by 15 energetic young Jordanian economists fresh out of university. Seven years ago, on returning to Jordan he found one of these 'young men' he had hired in 1963 was now the Minister of Finance, another was Minister of Transportation, another was Chief Executive Officer of a major exporter, another had been ambassador to Kuwait for five years, etc.etc. Ralph became Professor and Assoc. Dean at U of Toronto (1964-70) and chairman of the university discipline committee moderating between uncompromising exponents of old and new views of education prevalent in the discordant years 1968-70. He then became Ford Foundation adviser to Kenya (1970-72) where he became 'troubleshooter' for a new sugar factory which brought hope and off-farm jobs to thousands of small holders of Western Province and which-wonder of wonders - opened on the very day planned. The Mumias Sugar Factory became one of his greatest achievements; it has since been expanded from the original 60,000 tons to 180,000 tons of sugar per year. Ralph returned to Canada as Principal of Scarborough College of University of Toronto (1972-76), and spear-headed the creation of the first co-operative program of the U of T. He became President of U of Manitoba for four happy years (1976-81), during which he initiated the practice of holding convocations not only at the university but at five other cities so that nonuniversity relatives and local Friends could see their young people graduate. In 1981 he became Rockefeller Foundation adviser to Kenya and created small local teams analyzing sectors of the economy and stocked with newly graduated Kenyans. In 1984 he became Director, International Development Office of Association of Univ. and Coll. of Canada, Ottawa (1984-86) largely devoted to assisting Canadian universities establish productive relations with universities of the third world.. Thereafter, he was part time consultant/adviser in Africa, Asia, and Latin America and author of the book 'We Flew by Moonlight' recounting his experience as a war-time pilot ditching at night in the Channel and later being shot down on fire after bombing the Ruhr Valley. A second book, 'From Foxboro, Ontario' reviewed his long life with special attention to his early years in a farm community. He was President of the Agric. Inst. of Canada in 1960 and of the Can. Ag. Ec. Society in 1959. He became a member of the Order of Canada in 1986. On June 8, 2008 he will be inducted into the Ontario Agricultural Hall of Fame. One of Ralph's strongest points is that he has always been a 'people' person, a quality which comes naturally to those growing up in a family like his and a community like Foxboro. A devoted husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, friend, he will be sadly missed by his wife, Ruth, and many others. The funeral service will be held at Mundell Funeral Home, 79 West Street, Orillia, at 1 p.m. on Sunday, March 30th. Celebration of Life to follow at Hawk Ridge Golf and Country Club, 1151 Hurlwood Lane, Orillia.

After Grace's death Bob found a surrogate family in White Rock through his friend and colleague Betty Doherty and her family. Bob's children are grateful to them for their love and Friendship during his last years.
Bob was recovering from a serious case of shingles when he passed away suddenly during a visit of his daughters in Sarasota. Bob will be remembered warmly by all who knew him. His charm, wit and selflessness are unmatched.
Contributions in memory of Grace and Bob MITCHELL may be made to Alzheimer's Association.

RICHARDS, Arthur Guyon " Guy"
Arthur Guyon (Guy) RICHARDS was born in London, England, December 13th, 1918, and died in Vancouver, June 20th, 2008. Raised in a family that, until shortly before his birth, had been living in India. Guy followed his father and three older brothers into medicine, training at Christ's College, Cambridge and St. Bartholomew's Hospital in London, and entering military service upon graduation in 1942. He landed in Normandy on D+5. His assignment to a Canadian infantry battalion in the Gordon Highlanders led to the Friendships that ultimately drew him to Canada. In 1943, Guy married Elizabeth MITCHELL, also a physician. In 1948, after his post-graduate studies in pathology at Addenbrooke's, they emigrated to Saskatoon. Guy taught bacteriology at the University of Saskatchewan, headed the Saskatoon Red Cross blood bank and, particularly rewarding to him, worked with the Saskatchewan Anti-Tuberculosis League, from 1952-56. In addition to its sanatoria, the League dispatched mobile X-ray vans throughout rural Saskatchewan every summer, identifying previously undiagnosed TB patients. Guy appreciated the challenges of this annual adventure, the camaraderie of co-workers, and the cooperative spirit he encountered. Medicare is now central to Canadians' sense of who we are, but, when it was first introduced in Saskatchewan, most physicians there denounced 'socialist medicine' and attempted to prevent its implementation by going on strike in the summer of 1962. Breaking with their colleagues, Guy and Elizabeth became part of the small band of courageous doctors who publicly supported medicare and continued to practise throughout this politically tense time. In the late 1960s, Guy returned to the University of Saskatchewan, studying, then teaching, medical sociology there until 1987. As an academic, he developed a passionate interest in demography and the emerging field of sociobiology. Until the last days of his struggle with Parkinson's disease, he never tired of discussing applications of evolution to human affairs. 'Dr. Guy' was a kind and gentle physician, with a bedside manner well-suited to those who wanted the truth about their illness. He prescribed cautiously, detailing all potential side effects. Throughout his career, he anguished over the care of long-term addicts and of his terminally ill patients. After he and Elizabeth retired to Vancouver, Guy continued his pursuit of ideas and ideals, in the local branch of the Humanists, on the board of Mid-Main Community Health Centre, through research and an extensive correspondence. He will be lovingly remembered for delightful conversations that went on for years, for imaginative solutions to household mechanical and electrical problems, for surprisingly aggressive Scrabble playing, for an unwavering faith in unreliable British cars, for clear explanations, for patience, humour and generosity. We are grateful for the care he received from his physician, Doctor Sue Turgeon, and the expert staff at South Granville Park Lodge, where he lived the past three years, and for Marie, the soul mate he found there. Predeceased by Elizabeth, and by his daughter-in-law Kathleen, Guy is survived by his sons, John, Simon and Guy, and their families.

BALL, Jonathan
Teacher, lawyer, photographer, husband, brother, friend. Born March 15, 1947, in Redlands, California. Died March 3 in Toronto of sudden cardiac arrest, aged 60.
By Miriam MITTERMAIER, Page L6
Jon was an achiever from the start. In grade school, he was excellent in all subjects and a favourite with teachers and classmates. In high school, he was both an academic prize winner and the drum major. He attended Stanford University on a prestigious National Merit scholarship.
He had every opportunity to become conceited, but he remained incurably modest. He took pride in quirky things. As a child, he became the neighbourhood hula-hoop and pogo-stick champion. Later came a tandem bicycle, a motorcycle and an open Morgan, a vintage Victrola, a stereopticon and garage-sale cameras. Although he shrugged off his more conventional achievements, he loved showing these off.
Jon lived his values. He never preached, but refused to go to Vietnam. He was never demonstrative, but maintained warm, generous ties to Friends, family, beloved cats and, above all, his wife Lynne. They were a team, helping each other achieve their dreams and sharing adventures: Nova Scotia by motorcycle in the rain Tiananmen Square days before the massacre; Berlin as the Wall was coming down.
Jon's intelligence, humour, values and warmth came together in his two careers. He was a natural teacher, able to explain complex concepts clearly and make learning fun. Teaching combined well with adventure - he spent two years in Ghana with Canadian University Services Organization, and two in a Cree school in Moosonee, Ontario
He loved teaching, but also observing law courts wherever he went. So, in his 40s, he qualified as a lawyer and began his second career as a Crown attorney with the child-abuse team. He lasted far longer than most in this emotionally wrenching job. He was known for his empathy with children, his unshakeable fairness, his courtesy, his legal skill and his Friendship and teamwork with colleagues across the system.
In June, 2007, Jon took early retirement. Although short, it was filled with things he loved: walking the beach in Cobourg, Ontario; exploring by kayak and scooter; teaching law; solving sudokus; learning the bagpipes; printing and sharing his photos maintaining connections.
On March 3, while having lunch with Friends, Jon collapsed and died. At his memorial gathering, two rooms were packed despite a major blizzard. Attending were family, Friends and people from across the justice system. His family learned how his co-operative spirit and search for truth had influenced his co-workers; colleagues, in turn, were moved to hear that the qualities they had admired in Jon's work were present throughout all aspects of his life.
Miriam MITTERMAIER is Jon's sister.
