were suffering, He knew you were in pain, He knew that you would
never get well on this earth again, He saw that the road was getting
rough, and the hills were hard to climb, So he closed your weary
eyelids and whispered "Peace Be Thine". But you didn't go alone. For

PETERSEN, Hans Walter
Die Stadt Am grauen Strand, am grauen Meer Und seitab liegt die Stadt; Der Nebel drückt die Dächer schwer, Und durch die Stille braust das Meer Eintönig um die Stadt. Elisabeth rauscht kein Wald, es schlägt im Mai Kein Vogel ohn' Unterlaß
hartem Schrei Nur fliegt in Herbstesnacht vorbei, Am Strande weht das Gras. Doch hängt mein ganzes Herz an dir, Du graue Stadt am Meer; Der Jugend Zauber für und für Ruht lächelnd doch auf dir, auf dir, Du graue Stadt am Meer. - Theodor Storm
Hans Walter PETERSEN, born January 1, 1927 in Bredstedt, Germany, passed away peacefully on January 6, 2008 with family at his side. Walter emigrated from northern Germany to Canada in 1951 where he embraced new challenges that were such a driving part of his life. Hard work and the opportunities that our growing nation provided were the fertile soil Walter needed to fledge a pioneering business and see it prosper over the course of 4 decades. This success laid the groundwork for a growing family and lifelong Friendships that endure to this day. Walters's love of family and Friends was matched by an intense passion for the outdoors, especially sailing and water related activities, a legacy from his North Sea heritage. If he wasn't gliding over the waves under full sail, he was swimming powerfully through them - a fitting metaphor of his life. His upbeat nature and everpresent optimism will be missed by his wife Annemarie, children David and Julie, step-children Andreas and Kerstin, daughter-in-law Patricia and grandchildren Rush and Annie. A private memorial will be held at a date yet to be determined. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation is most appreciated.

PETERSEN, Julie Ann
When the universe is silent we listen with great pleasure to a bird that suddenly sings. When the forest is dead we understand the great power of life when we see a flower that suddenly blooms. This shows that what comes from heaven never truly dies, and that eternal motion can always begin again. Hong Zicheng
Julie Ann PETERSEN, born May 12, 1969 in Hamilton, Ontario, passed away suddenly on June 5, 2008 in North Cowichan, British Columbia. Julie had moved west in order to find peace and balance, things that eluded her for most of her adult life. The serenity of Douglas Fir forests and rocky alpine meadows now frame our memories of a kind-hearted and giving soul that will be missed by David, Trish, Rush and Annie along with good Friends that stood so steadfastly by her side. A private memorial will be held at a date yet to be determined. In lieu of flowers, a donation to an addiction services group of your choice is most appreciated.

GILBRIDE, Larry
Husband, uncle, bobsledder, golfer, taxman. Born November 21, 1942, in Montreal. Died July 15, 2007, in Toronto of pancreatic cancer, aged 64.
By Fred LANGAN, Page L6
Larry GILBRIDE was a man without an enemy in the world. He was so well-loved by the people he worked with at the government tax office that they flew the flag at half-mast when he died.
Larry was a straight shooter, a modest man with a wonderful dry sense of humour. He never complained, not even during his brief bout with cancer.
He was brought up in the Montreal suburb of the Town of Mount Royal. His parents decided to send Larry to an all-French primary school. There wasn't an English Catholic high school nearby, so like many other boys Larry took the bus to Loyola High School, a Jesuit private boy's school.
During high school, Larry did a lot of typical teenage things: He played hockey, took up the guitar and played in a band for a while.
When he was at Loyola College and for a few years afterward he shared a ski shack in St-Sauveur, Quebec, with 10 of his Friends - a young man's paradise in the 1960s.
Larry's first job was with CIL chemical company. A bean counter by day, he was anything but the mild-mannered accountant on the weekend.
Larry loved speed. To start, he raced cars at tracks in Quebec. His first racing car was a Sunbeam Alpine, a British two-seater. He then raced a Camaro at the track at St-Jovite.
But if racing cars was dangerous, Larry went on to a much riskier sport. He started out with the luge, a kind of tiny sled for adult daredevils, and then moved on to the bobsled.
In 1975, Larry drove the four-man Quebec team to third place in the North American championships at Lake Placid, New York He was also the manager of the bobsled team representing Canada at the 1980 Olympics held in Lake Placid.
The next passion in Larry's life was golf, which he took up in 1980. One of his first golf partners was his future wife, Joan PETERSON. After being downsized from work after 25 years, Larry found himself with time on his hands. As he looked for a new job, he improved his golf score from the high 90s to the mid-80s.
Larry worked for the Canada Revenue Agency for 15 years. Being the taxman made a few of his Friends nervous, but he was great company over beers. He was a bachelor who married late in life, amazing his Friends by settling into domesticity. He was also a devoted uncle.
Larry was quite handy at fixing things up around the house. Most Fridays he would play golf at Spring Lakes golf club in Stouffville, Ontario. He also loved his dogs. He and Joan had a beagle called Rush, then another beagle named Sally.
Larry died too soon. His Friends and family miss him, his chuckle and his droll wit.
Fred LANGAN is Larry's friend.

PETERSON, Leonard Byron " Len"
(March 15, 1917-February 28, 2008)
At Saint_Joseph's Health Centre with his family by his side. Len sold his first play to the newly created Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in 1938, following his graduation from Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois, and throughout his lifetime earned his living as a free-lance writer. Born in Regina, Saskatchewan, of Norwegian and Swedish parentage he developed a love of athletics through his boyhood membership in the Young Men's Christian Association. He became wrestling champion of Saskatchewan and Ontario, and was an avid swimmer, canoeist and skier. Passionate and rebellious by nature, his values and ideals were shaped by his experience of the depression years and the suffering and hardship he witnessed. During World War 2 he served as Lieutenant in the Canadian Infantry and as assistant radio liaison officer, Army Public Relations, Ottawa. The Toronto he returned to after the war was now entering the 'Golden Age' of radio, and Canadian Broadcasting Corporation drama under the supervision of Andrew Allan was eagerly followed by an audience across the entire nation. The nucleus of writers and actors became household names and the stars of their day. Len was the recipient of numerous writing awards both in Canada and the U.S., including the John Drainie Award for distinguished contribution to broadcasting. He participated in the opening show of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation coast-to-coast television network in 1958, was a founding member of Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists and one of the producers of the early professional theatre company, Jupiter Theatre.

PETERSON o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2008-03-08 published
Award-winning radio dramatist wrote more than 1,200 plays and screenplays
'His ruthless honesty… his daring in tackling forbidden subjects, gave rise to more letters to the editor and questions in the House of Commons than the work of any other writer'
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S10
After selling his first play to the nascent radio service of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in 1938, Len PETERSON made a living for more than five decades as a freelance playwright "in a land friendlier to ragweed than to indigenous drama," as he liked to say, without his "wit being dulled." He wrote more than 1,200 dramatic works for radio, the theatre, television and film in a variety of styles, moods and themes and won a series of prizes including several Ohio Columbus Awards, Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists Awards for best radio drama for The Trouble with Giants (1973) and for Evariste Galois (1984) and the John Drainie Award for distinguished contribution to broadcasting in 1974.
His heyday was in radio in the 1940s and early 1950s, working with producer Esse Ljungh, under the legendary Canadian Broadcasting Corporation producer-director Andrew Allan. "Nobody engendered more rage and nobody more admiration, than Len PETERSON," Mr. Allan wrote in his autobiography, A Self-Portrait. "His ruthless honesty, his sense of the colloquial, his daring in tackling forbidden subjects, gave rise to more letters to the editor and questions in the House of Commons than the work of any other writer. After we did his Burlap Bags… there were people who wouldn't speak to me. But, in the spring, when it won an award at Ohio State, the same people demanded to hear it again."
Blond, of medium height, with twinkling blue eyes and a cheerful face, Mr. PETERSON had a convivial demeanour, but a passionate and rebellious soul. As experimental as he was prolific, Mr. PETERSON loved to play with form and voice. Fascinated by the writers of his Nordic heritage and the workings of the human psyche, he was also a steadfast advocate of workers' rights and social justice. An early and long-time organizer and negotiator for the Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists, he co-ordinated the jury for the John Drainie Award for several years, and was also one of the founders of the Playwright's Co-op, an organization that initially published and distributed plays in typescript form and which later became a bargaining and lobbying unit. (It now exists as the Playwright's Union of Canada and Playwrights Canada Press.)
"He was one of the very few who were able to earn a livelihood by writing radio drama," said John Reeves, a former Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio drama producer and winner of the Italia Prize in 1995. "The most striking thing about Len's career was the consistent way he used drama to address social problems. He did that all the time and very effectively." But Mr. PETERSON didn't let his social conscience overpower his creative impulses, according to Mr. Reeves, "To him, the addressing of social drama and the writing of good artistic drama were a seamless garment."
Mr. PETERSON was a very attractive person to be with, says writer and former producer Vincent Tovell, describing him as profoundly compassionate about people and possessing a deadpan and ironic humour. He was "very much aware of the outer world," and "had an ironic sense of its craziness" and he "carved his own path and made a mark because of the depth of his interest in human and social and political affairs." As a dramatist, however, he was "very Scandinavian," according to Mr. Tovell. "Ibsen and Strindberg, the writers to whom he was so finely and naturally attuned -- all of their angst and tension and social concerns were part of his nature."
Leonard (Len) Byron PETERSON, the second of five children of Nils PETERSON, a Norwegian who worked as a locomotive engineer for the Grand Trunk and Canadian National Railways, and Marion (née NORQUIST) PETERSON, a Wisconsin-born woman of Swedish ancestry, was born in Regina on the day that Czar Nicholas II of Russia abdicated -- as he himself liked to point out.
Growing up on the Prairies, he felt surrounded by space. "As kids, oh, we were so free, on the run all the time, across the Prairies. There we were, bounding like antelope," Mr. PETERSON told the Toronto Star in May of 1972. "We spent an awful lot of time dreaming. The sky encouraged that." But it wasn't entirely carefree: his teenage years were shadowed by his little brother's death from appendicitis and the despair and deprivation of the Depression -- which was especially dire in the Prairies.
After graduating from local elementary and secondary schools, Len went to Luther College. He found it uninspiring and far too Anglo-centric, although as a natural athlete, he played quarterback on the school football team and excelled as a gymnast and wrestler. After two years, he switched to Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, to study math and sciences. There, he also discovered literature as social history, came in contact with professors who praised what he called his "primitive style" and began writing short stories. He graduated with a bachelor of science degree in 1938 and moved to Toronto, determined to become a writer, an unlikely career move that he once compared to "a Manitoban plowman deciding to become a ballet dancer." Nevertheless, he sold a radio script, It Happened in College to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in 1938 for $15.
"His typewriter never stopped," freelance writer Ron Hambleton, said in an interview this week, recalling that Mr. PETERSON was pounding out plays and short stories when both men were tenants in a house on Spadina Road in Toronto in 1941, and later in a house on Charles Street that Mr. Hambleton and his wife rented. "He was extremely athletic -- a marvellously active fellow -- who was extremely handsome, full of energy, loved the outdoors and had a very unusual imagination, when it came to interpreting everyday life." Mr. PETERSON continued to wrestle and even held an Ontario Wrestling Alliance championship title for two years.
Mr. PETERSON enlisted in the Canadian Army in the infantry in 1942. Fiercely independent, an obsessive reader of Nietzsche and Dostoevsky, a compulsive scribbler and note-taker, he had trouble acclimatizing himself to the regimentation of army life and engendered suspicion from his superior officers who confiscated his notebooks and had him locked up for 10 days as a suspected subversive.
After the Royal Canadian Mounted Police checked into his background, he was transferred to the radio section of National Defence Headquarters and ordered to write radio documentaries, dramas and other propaganda supporting the Canadian war effort. One of the perks of his job was meeting actress Ingrid Bergman (about the time she made a huge impact acting opposite Humphrey Bogart in the wartime classic Casablanca) when she appeared in Canada as part of a Victory Bonds drive. While travelling back and forth to Ottawa, he switched writing gears in his spare time and produced short stories for Maclean's, then a general-interest monthly magazine, and scripts for a hungry national audience of radio listeners.
The decade-long golden age of radio drama began in 1943 when Andrew Allan, who had joined the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as a producer in Vancouver in 1939, was promoted to national drama supervisor and transferred to Toronto. He created the Sunday night drama series that started with Stage 44 and progressed annually through Stage 45, Stage 46, and so on. He was also one of four senior drama producers working on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Wednesday Night, a weekly broadcast of international and original Canadian dramas.
Mr. Allan had great faith in the capacity of his audience to absorb difficult and even disturbing material and in the ability of his writers to invade and stretch listeners' imaginations. "What struck listeners as new and exciting about the Stage series," according to Bronwyn Drainie in her book, Living the Part: John Drainie and the Dilemma of Canadian Stardom, "was not just its crisp, quickly paced professional sound, but also its subject matter, which seemed to have grown up overnight. Canadian writers were emerging from the war years with an agenda… All that blood spilled to defeat Hitler would be wasted if the dark forces that had brought him to power -- racial hatred, class injustice, fear, greed and hypocrisy -- were allowed to grow unchecked here in Canada." Among the writers who found steady work in Mr. Allan's regime were Fletcher Markle, Joseph Schull, Lister Sinclair, Mavor Moore and, of course, Mr. PETERSON.
His first contribution to Stage 44 was Within The Fortress, an empathetic portrayal of German officers trapped in their own stronghold. It created a stir -- it was wartime, after all -- but nothing like the commotion that greeted the second of his three dramas to be broadcast live to air that year. They're All Afraid, which was set in Canada, was an exploration of office bullying, especially of a black worker, and the lack of freedom people experience even in ordinary life.
Although Ernie Bushnell, director general of programs, vociferously criticized the broadcast as bad for morale, Mr. Allan submitted it for the Columbus Award of the Ohio Radio Institute in 1944, where it won the top award in drama and a citation as the best submission in all categories. Mr. Bushnell accepted the award by confessing, "I didn't like this play when it was performed on our network. I still don't like it. But thank you very much," according to Alice Frick in Image in the Mind: Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio Drama 1944 to 1954. Mr. PETERSON soon reprised his prize-winning ways when his play Burlap Bags, an absurdist drama in the style of Beckett and Ionesco about a man who shields himself from society by covering his face with a burlap bag, also won an Ohio Award.
He published his first and only novel, Chipmunk, in the fall of 1949, about a weak character who commits a single act of defiance. Although the book had stalwart fans, it received a devastating review from William Arthur Deacon, then the literary editor of The Globe and Mail. After cautioning his readers that they would search in vain for easy entertainment, romance or excitement in Chipmunk, Mr. Deacon complained that Mr. PETERSON may have "willingly sacrificed popularity on the altar of his artistic integrity" with his "rigid rejection of the sentimental," and his "ruthless realism."
By now Mr. PETERSON had met Iris ROWLES, an English woman who had arrived in Canada after the war and worked as a secretary first for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio's international service and then for the drama department. They were married in 1951 and eventually had five children. "It was extraordinary, especially at that time, for a man to be able to support a family from his writing," said Mrs. PETERSON.
In addition to radio plays, Mr. PETERSON wrote a series of Ohio-Award-winning dramatized broadcasts on human relations titled In Search of Ourselves, and joined forces with actors Lorne Greene and John Drainie to found the Jupiter Theatre, a professional company dedicated to the "emergence of a truly Canadian voice in the theatre." The Jupiter, which lasted only three years, from 1951 to 1954, mounted plays by Europeans including Bertolt Brecht and Jean-Paul Sartre and new Canadian works by Ted Allan, Lister Sinclair and Nathan Cohen. It disbanded before Mr. PETERSON's play, Never Shoot a Devil, could be produced. Besides a lack of working capital in those pre-government-funding days, the Jupiter's demise can be attributed at least partly to the founding of the Stratford Festival, the currency of the Crest Theatre and the launch of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television in 1952.
Although Mr. PETERSON's experimental style was not as suited to television as it was to radio, he contributed to Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Folio, G.M. Theatre, First Performance and Playdate. He also worked on a joint Canadian Broadcasting Corporation-NBC live documentary about the St. Lawrence Seaway, which was aired on June 3, 1956, and on Memo to Champlain, a live 90-minute bilingual program, hosted by Joyce Davidson and René Lévesque, that was aired on July 1, 1958 to celebrate the formation of the national microwave network of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television -- the network did not include Newfoundland until the next year.
His first full-length stage play, The Great Hunger, which was produced by the Toronto Arts Theatre in 1960, was set around a killing in the Arctic and explores the communal myths affecting both White and Inuit cultures. In the 1970s he wrote The Workingman, which was premiered at Toronto Workshop Productions in May 1972 to celebrate the centenary of the labour movement in Canada and responded to feminist themes by writing Women in the Attic (1971) which was mounted by Ken Kramer at the Globe Theatre in Regina. He also began writing historical plays for children including Almighty Voice (1970), Billy Bishop and The Red Baron (1974) and Etienne Brulé (1977), all of which were mounted by the Young People's Theatre in Toronto. In just one example of how Mr. PETERSON recycled his research, he had earlier turned his Etienne Brulé material into separate radio and television treatments.
Although he would continue to write for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation -- especially radio -- Mr. PETERSON was increasingly distressed by new management policies at the public broadcaster. "Every few years the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation gets a new Television Wonder Boy (or Girl) who is going to rescue Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television drama," he wrote in an eloquent lament in The Globe in November, 1976. "Each Wonder Boy's handmaids work hard to kill the devil or god in every writer, his uniqueness, his genius, and turn him into a service writer, a formula writer. To a fair degree they succeed in making hacks of the writers and junk of the drama." Mr. PETERSON was 59 when he hammered out that broadside more than 30 years ago, but his sentiments seem as fresh as the current alarums about the latest restructuring at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and Bill C-10's potential threat to freedom of speech and artistic expression in Canada.
Leonard PETERSON was born in Regina on March 15, 1917. He died in Saint_Joseph's Hospital in Toronto of complications from a brain hemorrhage on February 28, 2008. He was 90. He is survived by his wife, Iris, and by his children Ingrid, Jill, Wendy and Anthony. He also leaves six grandchildren and his extended family. He was predeceased by his daughter, Teresa. There will be a celebration of his life at the Old Mill in Toronto on April 19, 2008.

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.

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.
