MCINNES/MCINNIS, Hector Macneill, Q.C.
Chester, Nova Scotia (July 26, 1933-March 18, 2008)
It is with great sadness that the McInnes family announces the passing of Hector MCINNES/MCINNIS on Tuesday, March 18, 2008. Born in Halifax, he was the eldest son of the late Donald MCINNES/MCINNIS and Betty (ROWAN- LEGG.) He is survived by his wife, Beverley (SMITH) of 48 years; three sons: David (Julie GROULX,) Ottawa; Robert (Joan CULLUM), Prospect; Andrew (Lesia ETTINGER), Tantallon and eight grand children: Griffin, Kerry, Kesha, Ben, Will, Callie, Rowan and Charlie. He also leaves two brothers, Stewart (Shirley BOWNESS), Halifax; Roderick (Daniele TANGUAY), Toronto; a sister, Ann (Eric RICE) Vancouver; and eleven nieces and nephews and five grand-nieces and grand-nephews. After graduating from Ashbury College in Ottawa, Hector received his Bachelor of Law degree from Dalhousie University and his Master of Laws from Harvard Law School, both with high honours. He was called to the Nova Scotia Bar in September 1957 and began the practice of law with McInnes Cooper as the firm's third generation McInnes. Hector proudly built upon the legacy of his father, Donald MCINNES/MCINNIS, and his grandfather, Hector MCINNES/MCINNIS, for forty years, devoting his whole career to the firm and its clients. Hector was a gifted corporate and commercial lawyer, and his advice was much sought after by companies large and small, local and international in scope. His contribution was significant with his effort spent developing the economic cornerstones of the Province of Nova Scotia. He was appointed Counsel to the firm in 1994. Hector was always an active member of the legal community, as a member of the Canadian Bar Association and the Nova Scotia Barristers' Society. He also contributed his experience to many volunteer organizations, serving as President of the Halifax Young Men's Christian Association, President of Symphony Nova Scotia, Chairman of the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia and Vice President of Neptune Theatre. Hector served as a director and officer of numerous Canadian corporations. He was a member of St. Matthew's United Church, the Halifax Club, Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron, Ashburn Golf Club and Chester Yacht Club. Hector retired to his beloved Chester and spent many recent winters at The St. Andrews Club in Delray Beach, Florida, enjoying his time with family and Friends (and every crossword puzzle and book he could get his hands on). In accordance with Hector's wishes, a private family service will take place with internment at Fairview Cemetery, Halifax. A visitation for Friends and colleagues will be held at the home of Stewart and Shirley MCINNES/MCINNIS, 490 Francklyn Street, Halifax on Saturday, March 22, 2008 from 2: 00-5:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers and in Hector MCINNES/MCINNIS' memory, you may choose to donate to the QE2 Foundation, 5A Nursing Education Fund (Radiation Oncology), 1278 Tower Road, Centennial Building, Room 1 - 040, Halifax, Nova Scotia, B3H 2Y9, tel: (902) 473-7932; or the Provincial Autism Centre, 1456 Brenton Street, Halifax, Nova Scotia, B3J 2K7, tel: (902) 446-4995.

RICH, Bernard Wakeham
Bernard was at home in Oakville in his bed by the window, his loving wife Margaret and his family were by his side as he closed his eyes for the last time. He died peacefully on June 12th 2008 at the age of 86. Bernard will be dearly missed by his wife of 62 years Margaret (DAKERS) and his five daughters Bonnie RICH (Thomas CALVERT), Catherine HANSEN (Kaj), Virginia PEARCE (Richard), Linda ESSIEMBRE (Yvon) and Pamela BEZIC (Val) and his ten grandchildren Mark, Devon, Laurel, Emily, Peter, Eric, James, Rebecca, Joshua and Jennifer. He was born in Beamsville, Ontario, but most of his boyhood memories were of St. Catharines where he met Margaret before going off to the war. During World War 2, Bernard served as a flight instructor with the Royal Canadian Air Force before being assigned to 31 Squadron Royal Air Force as a flight officer and posted to Burma. Upon his return to Canada, he joined Trans Canada Airlines and went on to a distinguished 37 year career. He retired in 1981 as a highly respected 747 Captain with Air Canada after logging 26,600 hours in the air. In his retirement years when he wasn't filling his time maintaining his beloved home in Oakville he was golfing, sailing, flying and sharing happy hour with anyone who happened to drop in. He made many Friends in Naples, Florida where he and Margaret were the center of what they referred to as their "other life". For those who were lucky enough to cross his path, he was a genuine man's man. From skiing the mountains of the Alps to diving in the coral reef, from canoeing Canadian northern lakes to sailing Lake Ontario and everything in between; he took advantage of all life's opportunities and he generously shared his experiences with others. The Boy Scouts at Maple Grove United Church were one of the many groups that benefited from his commitment to community. Bernard was admired for his devotion to his five daughters (Bonnie, Catherine, Ginny, Linda and Pam). His passing is a devastating loss in the lives of his 5 daughters, ten grandchildren and all those whose lives he touched. All of our lives have been enriched by Grandpa's words of wisdom, encouragement and inspiration. His priceless life lessons will continue to guide us all. Our Canadian Airman has flown, to touch the face of God.
Final Departure.

VINCE, William Dennis
(November 23rd 1963-June 21st, 2008)
After a courageous battle with sarcoma cancer, Bill passed away in his West Vancouver home at the age of 44. An accomplished filmmaker, he is most widely known for his role as President and Founder of Infinity Features Entertainment and as the Producer of 'Capote' for his five Academy Award Nominations and one Academy Award win. Those closest to Bill, however, are more likely to remember him for his charm, determination, and willingness to make a difference in the lives of others. As a child he was diagnosed with Dyslexia, and has since dedicated much of his time and energy to helping others who are afflicted with this condition. He was an active mentor in the community as a hockey coach, sharing the skills he acquired during his first career as a professional hockey player. Bill also helped to implement and fund several programs on the Vancouver Downtown East-side to assist young people in their struggle with drug addiction. Even as his illness progressed Bill's determination could not be destroyed. While in treatment he completed three feature films; 'Push', 'The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus', and 'Stone of Destiny.' More than anything, Bill wanted to win the battle with cancer for his children. Until the very end he refused to give up and never complained. Bill was a loving father to Miles, Michaela, and Nathanial, and husband to Cynthia MILES. Predeceased by his mother, Elizabeth Anne Harland VINCE, Bill also leaves behind his father, Dennis VINCE, his brother, Robert VINCE, and sisters; Pauline GIBSON, Lyn VINCE, and Janet RICHARD, as well as his many nieces and nephews and longtime close Friends and business associates. The family would like to thank Doctor Richard Gray and Doctor Chris Beauchamp at the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale and Doctor Paul Klimo, Doctor Paul Sugar, and Nurse Pat Macdonald at the Lions Gate Hospital. Special thank you also, to Jesse Serrana and the many Friends and family members that have offered their support and kindness. Please join us for a Celebration of Bill's life to be held at 1: 00 p.m. this Friday June 27th, at St. David's United Church located at 1525 Taylor Way in West Vancouver. In Lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The William Vince Foundation; care of Debra Thomas, The Canada Trust Company, P.O. Box 10083, Vancouver, British Columbia, V7Y 1B6. Funds from the Foundation will be used to provide an Annual Scholarship Fund to be awarded to an aspiring young Film Producer that has experienced and overcome adversity in their life.

Toronto modernist's projects married pragmatism, poetic sensibility
Award-winning university collaboration conjures an architecture both sustainable and beautiful
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S11
An architect who was ahead of the curve in thinking how sustainable design can be integrated in elegant architectural solutions, Adrian DICASTRI brought his love of music and culture along with his analytical skills to the art and practice of his profession.
"What a lot of people didn't realize about Adrian was his poetic sensibility," said his friend Dereck REVINGTON, another architect who described Mr. DICASTRI's major buildings as "full of colour and light and a subtle dancing rhythm."
Pragmatism had to be satisfied first, but what characterized Mr. DICASTRI's work was a luminous and lyrical modernism, Mr. REVINGTON said. "His definition of sustainability was much more complex than simply creating ecologically friendly buildings. He spoke continuously about the importance of cultural, environmental and aesthetic sustainability."
Adrian John DICASTRI was born in Victoria, the second of five sons and one daughter of architect John DICASTRI (obituary September 22, 2005) and his wife Florence Margaret (GREENWOOD,) who was always called Paddy. The family lived first in the Rockland area of Victoria - in a house his father had designed - and then in a rambling former seniors' residence close to the ocean in Oak Bay that the senior Mr. DICASTRI renovated to accommodate his large and rambunctious family.
As a boy, Adrian was the only child who showed any ability at sketching and drawing, according to his younger brother Julian. He also swam "like a porpoise" and loved being in the water, a passion he would later sustain in "landlocked Toronto" by designing and building a family cottage on Georgian Bay.
He attended St. Patrick's Elementary School and then Oak Bay junior and senior high schools, graduating in 1969. He worked in his father's architectural office for a couple of years and then, at 19, went travelling in Europe for six months.
After returning, he resumed his Friendship with Susan McDONALD, who had been a year or so behind him in high school, and entered the University of Victoria, where he studied English literature in a general arts program. A ferocious reader, he was torn in those early years between teaching and architecture. He left after two years and went travelling again, this time to Mexico and Central America. By the time he returned, he had affirmed his decision on a career in architecture. He won a place in the University of Waterloo's co-op degree program in January, 1976.
After completing nearly three years of his degree, he and Ms. McDONALD (by then his wife) moved to Toronto, where he enrolled in the architecture program at the University of Toronto. Larry RICHARDS, former dean of the faculty of architecture, remembers him as "an outstanding, leading student" who was also a very nice guy. Mr. DICASTRI graduated with a bachelor of architecture degree in 1982. son Nicholas was born in 1983 and daughter Julia in As a young architect, Mr. DICASTRI worked at Diamond and Schmitt architects in Toronto. "He was an extraordinarily focused and smart guy who was a really great critic on projects in development," said Don SCHMITT, a principal in the firm. "He was a real modernist, and rigorous in his focus on rational solutions and elegant but spare design." Mr. SCHMITT also remembered him as being relaxed and possessing a dry sense of humour, qualities that "are very important in the culture of an office."
Architect John VAN NOSTRAND hired Mr. DICASTRI in 1984. "He was interested in working in a smaller firm where he could have more direct influence," Mr. VAN NOSTRAND said. The two eventually became partners, working on some major social housing projects until government support for that market dried up in the early 1990s. They also did a number of university projects, including the revitalization of St. George Street on the University of Toronto campus.
"He was a brilliant designer and he got brilliant buildings done, but he did it in a very pragmatic way," said Mr. VAN NOSTRAND. "He had real stamina for sticking with long projects and making sure that they were finished off as well as they were started. And he was a good leader. People who worked for him respected him and wanted to make good buildings for him."
In the mid 1990s, their firm went after the contract for the Computer Science and Engineering Building at York University. Mr. DICASTRI, fascinated by the idea of creating sustainable buildings, was superb at forging connections and put together a collaboration that included Vancouver architect Peter Busby, a noted green designer.
"That building is really a reflection of Peter Busby and his West Coast thinking and Adrian DICASTRI and his practical, plain thinking and his understanding of the complexity of York University and where it could go," said architect Peter CLEWES.
The building, which has operable windows, uses "passive strategies" to maximize natural light and ventilation and decrease the need for air-conditioning. It won several awards, including the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada Governor-General's Medal in Architecture. Mr. CLEWES said it demonstrates that "it is not only the spaces within buildings that are important, but the spaces they create outside of themselves." A complex and seminal building in Mr. DICASTRI's career, it speaks to how he was beginning to think about collaboration with others and about the practicalities of creating buildings that are both sustainable and yet beautiful to live and work in. "That was a turning point for him."
Mr. CLEWES and Mr. DICASTRI, who had known each other since the 1980s, often commiserated about the capriciousness of a career in architecture - which is known as a fine vocation and a horrible profession, especially during economic downturns. They were both partners in architectural firms that were struggling to sustain themselves when Mr. DICASTRI called Mr. CLEWES in 1998 and proposed they merge practices. He cited the computer sciences building at York as an example of the kinds of things they could do together.
"It came out of the blue," Mr. CLEWES said this week - but the more he thought about it, the more he realized that "for the first time in about eight or nine years, [I felt] I could stick my head up above water and look around and say, 'This could mean something more than simply surviving.' "
The following year, Van Nostrand Dicastri and Wallman Clewes Bergman merged to form Architects Alliance. Mr. DICASTRI's strength as a strategic thinker and team builder came into play on one of the firm's significant projects, the Terrence Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomolecular Research at the U of T, which they did in collaboration with Stefan Behnisch Architekten in Germany. The completed building - elegant, intriguingly situated, ecologically green, technologically but subtly complicated - has won popular accolades and several design prizes, including the International Award from the Royal Institute of British Architects and the Design Excellence Award from the Ontario Association of Architects.
It was poignant that Mr. DICASTRI, at the point when his professional and family lives were happily and productively established, was diagnosed with bladder cancer in 2006. The next 15 months were a relentless struggle with surgery, chemotherapy and radiation as he fought against what proved to be an unconquerable illness. A week ago, he received a specially designed box containing individually written letters, poems and messages of esteem and affection from his colleagues at Architects Alliance. He was still well enough to read and share them with his family.
Adrian John DICASTRI was born in Victoria on September 5, 1952. He died at home in Toronto on January 29, 2008, of metastasized bladder cancer. He was 55. He is survived by wife Susan McDONALD, children Nicholas and Julia, five siblings and extended family. There will be a celebration of his life Tuesday in the Great Hall, Hart House, University of Toronto.

McGEACHY, Audrey Yvonne (DENYES)
Passed away on May 2, 2008 in her 92nd year at Rayoak Place. Beloved wife of 63 years of Thomas who passed away in November, 2001. The McGeachys resided in the Agincourt area from 1952 to 2000 and were active members of St. Timothy's Anglican Church. Audrey was proud to say she was born in Toronto's Women's College Hospital. There, in later years, her three daughters, Heather (RICHARDS of Vancouver,) Holly (LIPSETT of Toronto) and Dawn (of Toronto) and grandchildren, Todd and Bart LIPSETT were born. As a young high school graduate in the mid 1930's, when there was limited employment, Audrey was entrepreneurial, applying her love of and skill with dance to establish the Audrey Yvonne School of the Dance. In those tight economic times, she travelled by bus weekly to Guelph and Peterborough to conduct classes there, as well as three days a week in Toronto. Marriage to her Tom in 1938 brought an end to that professional career, but the love of dance never left her and staff at The Leaside and Rayoak Place were cajoled into knowing the five ballet positions which were deftly demostrated even though Audrey would announce, 'I don't do a pas de chat anymore.' More than anything, in her final years, Audrey yearned to be 'back with Dad'. The family is joyful that the wish has now been granted. She will be missed by her daughters sons-in-law, Je In LEE and Robert LIPSETT; grand_sons and great-granddaughter, Taylor LIPSETT. Appreciation to the relatives and Friends who recognized the debilitating social effects of dementia that Audrey suffered from for many years, and stayed the course of contact and Friendship. Family and Friends will be received at the Sherrin Funeral Home, 873 Kingston Road (west of Victoria Park) Toronto, 416 698-2861, on Monday, May 5, 2008 from 10-11 a.m. Funeral service to follow in the chapel at 11 a.m. Interment at Prospect Cemetery.

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.
