NEILL, David Arthur
By Paige STECIUK, Page L12
Husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, educator, administrator, volunteer, fundraiser. Born January 1, 1943, in Toronto. Died January 3 in Weston, Florida, of a spontaneous intracranial hemorrhage, aged 65.
David was the kind of person who never spoke of his accomplishments, but was rewarded with an inner, personal satisfaction.
He was born to Kitty and Art NEILL while his father was serving in the army during the Second World War. After attending Hamilton Teachers' College in 1961, David began teaching at the Ontario School for the Blind in Brantford, Ontario While his children were young, he obtained his bachelor's degree at Hamilton's McMaster University and later his master's in education from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto.
David was superintendent of the W. Ross Macdonald School for the visually impaired in Brantford until 1997. Retirement did not suit him and he soon returned as a consultant. He was proud to be in his 46th year in education.
When he was a recently divorced man of 35 with three young children - Paige, Stacy and Jonathan - David met the love of his life, Margot. They married in 1980 and had two more boys to add to the brood, David and Andrew.
Their marriage was something their children can look to as a model of how love should be. With five kids, the family dinner table was a loud and boisterous place. Conversations often led to joking about David and his antics. As busy as he was in his own life, he was always interested and involved in his children's lives.
David was well known for his humbleness and volunteer work for numerous local organizations. One of his church's charities was the Home of Hope Orphanage in Malawi, Africa. With his good friend Jane Glaves, the main benefactor, David supported the orphanage's fundraising efforts. Jane showed her appreciation by naming an orphan, David, after him. This same orphan was adopted by Madonna. This led to many family jokes after David was interviewed by the local media, but true to form, he tried to change the focus to raise awareness of the orphanage's work.
David wanted to do something special with Margot for his 65th birthday. They spent New Year's Eve on a celebratory holiday in St. Maarten dancing and watching fireworks on the beach. On his birthday, New Year's Day, they shared breakfast. He was quietly reading on the beach when he suffered a catastrophic intracranial hemorrhage.
All five children flew to Florida, where he had been transferred, before his death two days later. We are all so proud of his accomplishments and hope to live our lives following his example. David lives on in the hearts of all who loved him and in the lives of the recipients of his gifts through organ donation.
Paige STECIUK is David's daughter.

MARTIN, Alloys Christina Mary Morgan "Billy" (née STEELE)
90, died at her home in Gloucester, Massachusetts on Saturday, December 29, 2007 with her family by her side. She was born January 1, 1917 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, the daughter of Ira J. and Lillian K. (FOWLER) STEELE.
She grew up on her family's cattle ranch in Lloydminster, Saskatchewan, driving teams of work horses and riding a pony to a one-room school. She loved horses and her deep bond with them and many other animals was a source of comfort and delight throughout her life. She received a Bachelor of Arts in teaching from Victoria College, University of Toronto. During World War 2, she worked for the Canadian Navy in vision research. She continued her education at Harvard University where she received a Ph.D. in physiology in 1952 and pursued research in endocrinology. While her children were growing up, she devoted herself to their well-being, and encouraged them in their dreams. She became a skilled silversmith, studying for many years at the DeCordova Museum School. Her designs were original and beautifully executed, gifts that delighted their recipients. Her reading spanned a universe of interests, and her creative talents were also expressed in knitting, in gardening and in dancing. She worked hard and believed strongly in sharing whatever she had with those less fortunate. She was interested in and supported many efforts to achieve justice for both people and animals and to preserve the wild places of the Earth.
On June 20, 1952 she married Christopher MARTIN who survives. She leaves four children, daughters Kathleen MARTIN and partner Karol Bruce PAPIERNIK of Saxtons River, Vermont, and Janet MARTIN and husband Joerg MAYER of Southbridge, Massachussetts, sons Christopher and fiancee Marcia WEBSTER of Shelburne Falls, Massachussetts, and Malcolm and wife Celeste of Weehawken, New Jersey, also two beloved grandchildren, Lillian and Jasper of Weehawken, New Jersey, two nephews, Stephen SACKSTON of Caledon East, Ontario, and James SACKSTON and wife Lois of Fenelon Falls, Ontario, two grandnieces and their children, and many Friends made over her lifetime.
She was predeceased by four brothers, Ira, Kenneth, Jack and Bill and one sister, Lois Katherine SACKSTON.
Burial was in the family plot in Saxtons River Cemetery. A memorial gathering will be held in the spring. Fenton and Hennessey Funeral Home, Bellows Falls, Vermont is handling the arrangements. Mrs. MARTIN loved flowers and while she would have appreciated them, the family asks that the resources be devoted in her memory to a charity of one's choice.

ANDREWS, John Hobart Mclean
(May 15, 1926, to April 23, 2008)
John Hobart McLean ANDREWS, born in Kamloops, British Columbia, died peacefully on April 23, 2008, in North Vancouver, British Columbia. Predeceased by his parents John Ernest ANDREWS and Cynthia Maria ANDREWS (née ROBINSON;) sister-in-law Margaret STEELE (née PAYNE;) and infant son Douglas Reid ANDREWS. Survived by his wife Doris Deborah ANDREWS (née PAYNE;) son William John ANDREWS, daughter-in-law Merle ZABRACK, grandchildren Aaron and Naomi; son Donald Wilfrid Kao ANDREWS, daughter-in-law Anne Kao ANDREWS, grandchildren Brett and Alexandra; son Jeffrey Peter ANDREWS, daughter-in-law Virginia DEVONSHIRE, grandchildren Monica, Laura and Georgia; daughter Lorraine Doris ANDREWS, grand_son Graydon; brother William Robinson ANDREWS, sister-in-law Vips sister Ella Mary TAIT/TAITE/TATE, brother-in-law Howard; sister-in-law Eleanor HUMPHREY (née PAYNE,) brother-in-law Al HUMPHREY; and brother-in- law Tom STEELE. John also leaves behind numerous nephews and nieces.
John ANDREWS attended Kamloops High School. In 1947, he received a B.A. in Physics from the University of British Columbia, where he met Dorie, the love of his life. He and Dorie were married on August 28, 1948. After teacher training, they taught at various small schools in communities such as Squamish and Salmon Arm, British Columbia In 1955, they packed up little Billie and Donnie and drove to Chicago, where John received a Ph.D. in the new field of Education Administration from the University of Chicago in 1957. Choosing to return to Canada, they moved to Edmonton, where the arrival of Jeff and Lorraine completed the family. John was a Professor of Education Administration at the University of Alberta from 1958 to 1965. In 1965, the family moved to Toronto, where John was the Associate Director of the newly formed Ontario Institute for Studies in Education. In 1973, John and Dorie and family returned to their British Columbia roots. John was the Dean of the Faculty of Education at the University of British Columbia from 1973 to 1980, and remained a Professor there until his retirement as Dean Emeritus in 1985. John held a deep personal and professional commitment to the public education system both in Canada and around the world.
Perhaps John's most inspirational accomplishment was his total devotion to Dorie after she suffered a severe stroke in 1990. Together, Dad and Mom remade their lives, travelled the world, doted on their grandchildren and cared for each other through all that came their way.
Special thanks to John's caregiver Alicia Rhodes, who brightened Dad's final years.

DIRKS, Wilhelmina G.E. (VAN STEENBERGEN)
It is with sadness that we announce the passing of the matriarch of our family on April 5, 2008.
Willy or Oma, as she was known to all, was born in Semarang on the island of Java in Indonesia. She was the only child of Dirk Th. W. VAN STEENBERGEN and Wilhelmina LE GEU. Her early years were spent on a sugar plantation managed by her father. At the age of 17 she was sent to The Netherlands to live with an aunt and uncle while she continued her education at secondary and post secondary school. She married the love of her life, Adriaan (Ad) DIRKS, on December 06, 1939. Together they had three daughters, Anke, Elsje and Luke. Their lives were impacted by the dark years of the German occupation during World War 2. Willy spent many kms. on the road, on a bicycle with no tires, trading wedding presents for food for her family. During this time Willy worried about her parents who were imprisoned in a Japanese concentration camp on the island of Java.
Determined to find a better life, Willy, Ad and the girls moved to the island of Curacao in the Netherlands Antilles and then 5 years later to Canada. As a trained bookkeeper, Willy who spoke 6 languages, first worked alongside her husband in his insurance business. However, after the girls were educated and married, Willy started Wellington Way Travel agency with offices in Markham, Ontario and Unionville, Ontario. In 1976 she retired from the business world, moved to North Eastern Ontario, to be close to her family. Unfortunately her health failed and Oma, as she was known then, moved to Northview Nursing Home in Englehart, Ontario.
Willy was predeceased by her parents, her husband Adriaan (1972), her daughter Elizabeth LOGAN (1982) and son-in-law William LOGAN She is survived by her daughters and spouses Anne and Ronald BAILEY and Lucy and Lawrence DUKE all of Thornloe, Ontario.

A fierce litigator who was a 'gentleman'
By Jacquie McNISH, Page B7
George GLEZOS dove into lawsuits with intensity, argued with a flourish in court, never uttered a cross word to opponents, sometimes exercised twice a day at his gym and wrote outrageous e-mails.
When the Lerners LLP litigator died suddenly of a brain aneurysm on Sunday at the age of 53, stories circulated quickly about his ferocious appetite for the law, sports and his family.
"He leaves a huge hole and ache in many lives," said his partner Earl CHERNIAK.
In law, Mr. GLEZOS distinguished himself by taking on what his partner Peter JERVIS described as "the steepest and deepest cases." At Lerners, Mr. GLEZOS is remembered for irreverent e-mails.
His favourite e-mail command, Mr. CHERNIAK said, was "reply all."
When a law clerk once sent a firm-wide e-mail asking whether anyone spoke Polish, Mr. GLEZOS hit "reply all" and wrote: "The Pope."
When another Lerners employee sent an e-mail about a new firm policy requiring prior approval for promotional expenses, he replied: "I will be taking 100 clients to Hawaii. It will cost a lot, but it will be worth it as we have been promised a lot of business, which will keep us all employed. Please approve."
One of Mr. GLEZOS' most memorable lawsuits was ultimately lost at the Supreme Court of Canada.
The case was a claim by an investor that few other law firms would tackle because it accused major retailer Danier Leather Inc. of failing to disclose negative sales data at a time when it was selling company shares.
Mr. GLEZOS and Mr. JERVIS won the closely watched case at trial, but it was ultimately overturned in Canada's highest court.
Despite the roller-coaster ride, Danier's lawyer Ben ZARNETT at Goodmans LLP said Mr. GLEZOS never lost his cool.
"George was the kind of lawyer with whom you could litigate a high-stakes case like Danier for years and right up to the Supreme Court without ever exchanging an angry word," Mr. ZARNETT said.
"He was a gentleman."
Paul STEEP at McCarthy Tétrault LLP opposed Mr. GLEZOS in two corporate lawsuits that potentially involved tens of millions of dollars of losses for their respective clients. Although Mr. GLEZOS fought hard in court for his client, Mr. STEEP said the lawyer once patted him on the back after a tough day in court and volunteered that Mr. STEEP would win the case.
"George loved being an advocate and he loved the camaraderie of the bar. Even when he was fighting hard for his client he never forgot that we are all colleagues," Mr. STEEP said.
Mr. GLEZOS leaves his wife, Olwyn, and son Matthew and daughter Melanie.
