Sparks lit way for many
Mourners share stories of two Lambton teens killed in a car crash.
By Shawn JEFFORDS, Sun Media, Sun., January 27, 2008
Sarnia -- Vanessa CRAWFORD and Brianne DESCHAMPS were remembered yesterday by grieving family members, Friends and hundreds from the community as two sparks extinguished far too soon.
Mourners crammed into St. Luke's United Church for CRAWFORD's funeral, while many of the same people packed the Smith Funeral Home later in the afternoon to attend the funeral for DESCHAMPS.
The 19-year-old girls, who grew up together in Lambton County, died Wednesday in a crash in Ottawa that also killed Mark MacDONALD of Arnprior.
All three attended Carleton University. Mourners from across the province made the trip for both funerals.
"Today we think of Vanessa, Brianne and Mark," said Rev. Stephen SAVEL, who presided over the funeral for DESCHAMPS. " Their lives had hardly begun and then were so quickly and tragically ended."
At St. Luke's church, mourners overflowed into the basement, while others stood along the wall in the church sanctuary to hear Rev. Connie ELLIS.
"In the short time that Vanessa was with us, she learned all of the important lessons about life and love and what really mattered," ELLIS said.
CRAWFORD's family gathered before the service, crying and hugging one another.
Her father, Lee, held a pair of crimson dance slippers in one hand and his wife Annette's hand in the other as the couple made their way into the church.
Friend after friend rose to tell stories of CRAWFORD's adventures.
She was remembered as an accomplished dancer, daring skydiver and good friend.
"We shared everything, clothes and secrets," said her friend Laura TAILOR/TAYLOR. " You shared your dad's sense of adventure and your mom's love of life."
A light snow fell as pall bearers carried CRAWFORD's casket past an honour guard of dozens of dancers from the Shirley Schram School of Dance. Many wept and held each other for support as they placed single red roses on the casket.
At DESCHAMPS' funeral, mourners packed a hallway and the funeral home's main foyer to hear the service. She was remembered as "an old soul" who lived life "in double time."
Her younger sister Brooke told mourners when the two were younger, Brianne would share her bed when Brooke awoke from a nightmare.
"She would hug me tight and tell me everything was going to be all right," she said. "She was my role model, my hero and my best friend."
DESCHAMPS' father Steve shared an e-mail she had sent him shortly before the crash. She jokingly referred to herself as "Bri-Diddy" and promised to pay her parents back if they lent her money to buy shoes for a ball at Carleton.
"Bri, we miss you so damn much," he said, his voice cracking. "We will hold you in our hearts forever."

Special Olympian embodied community spirit
By Tara BOWIE, Sun Media, Sun., February 10, 2008
Norwich -- Michael SKOLLY brought love and laughter wherever he travelled.
The Special Olympian died of heart complications January 22 at the home of his parents, Don and Heather, in Woodstock. He was When SKOLLY lived in Norwich, it was a regular occurrence to see him walking down Main Street poking his head into businesses just to say hello.
"They always say that it takes a village to raise a child and Norwich definitely helped to raise Michael," Heather SKOLLY said. "We appreciate everyone's help, support and acceptance of Michael."
The SKOLLYs lived in Norwich 20 years before moving to Woodstock to allow Michael easier access to needed programs.
A few years ago, bowling sparked his interest when longtime friend Karmelle TAILOR/TAYLOR started a Special Olympic team in Ingersoll.
"Michael didn't care whether he won or lost -- it was all just about having fun," TAILOR/TAYLOR said. "He already had his arms in the air, all excited, before the ball even made it to the end of the alley."
TAILOR/TAYLOR met SKOLLY while working with his mother, and later was his assistant teacher at Glendale high school in Tillsonburg.
She recalls her friend as a "young man as full of life as he could possibly could be. He just loved everybody and everything."
SKOLLY's sense of humour brought a smile to many, TAILOR/TAYLOR said. "He used to call me and ask if he could kidnap me, I would tell him I wasn't a kid. He would reply without missing a beat, 'Okay, how about I old-ladynap you?' "
SKOLLY won a Special Olympics Ontario title in the sport he loved and went on to the 2006 Canadian Special Olympics in Brandon, Manitoba
"He was so excited when he won, I'm surprised everyone didn't hear him," TAILOR/TAYLOR said.
SKOLLY flew with the rest of the team to Brandon and met his parents on the ground.
"I don't think his smile left his face during the whole trip," Heather said.
In Norwich, SKOLLY spent countless hours at the Village Restaurant and Jean's Coffee Bar, lunching with Friends. He worked a few seasons at the Fountainview Golf Course.
"He was always doing something with someone somewhere," Heather SKOLLY said. "We appreciate everyone who touched his life so much."

Man's crime spree recalled
Donald Wayne CLINE died last month at age 55, but he's remembered for his deeds at age 21.
By Joe MATYAS, Sun Media, Wed., March 5, 2008
Donald Wayne CLINE, the key figure in a dramatic Southwestern Ontario crime story more than 30 years ago, has died.
CLINE, 55, died late last month in hospital in Saint Thomas, his hometown.
A generation earlier, in 1975, the then-21-year-old was thrust under the spotlight in a 37-hour news saga.
The story began with a stolen car in London and the robbery of a Thamesford IGA store by four armed men. It turned into a 21-hour siege of a farmhouse on Highway 2 at Skee-Hi Road and ended a day later when London police tear-gassed a Boulee Street townhouse and arrested CLINE.
The evolving story included:
- A family with four children held captive.
- Two police officers disarmed of their service pistols.
- Shots fired at police and media.
- A $10,000 ransom paid for the release of three children.
- Police pursuit of a car containing an ex-convict driver, an armed man and a hostage on Highway 401 to and from Toronto.
- The car eluding police at night.
- A telephone tip to police where CLINE could be found.
CLINE was convicted a year later of attempted murder, three counts of armed robbery and one each of extortion and car theft.
He was sentenced to 18 years in prison, with eligibility for parole.
News of his death surprised those who covered the story.
"It was a big story at the time," said retired Free Press reporter Jim TAILOR/TAYLOR, one of the reporters who covered it. "I got a kick out of it."
The bizarre events were preceded by CLINE's escape from the Millhaven minimum security penitentiary on October 1, 1974, where he was serving a 4½ -year sentence on five charges related to a gas station robbery.
During his trial on the Thamesford events, CLINE testified he fired shots at police to frighten them, not to kill. No one was hurt.
Five police forces were involved in various phases of the events, with the Ontario Provincial Police leading the investigation.
The media took heavy criticism, when the incident was over, for having made direct phone calls to CLINE at the farmhouse during the seige.
Critics said the media made it harder for police to end the incident.
A newspaper reporter was chided for making himself the intermediary between CLINE and the police and a broadcaster was rebuked for asking CLINE during a live interview why he wasn't asking for a larger ransom.
CLINE was acquitted of kidnapping after testimony revealed he knew the family thought to be hostages.

TAILOR/TAYLOR, Robert (1934-2003)
Husband, father, grandfather. We cannot lose the ones we love, For even when they're gone, We feel their gentle presence, In the hush of every dawn. We see them in the sunlight, That makes the day so bright, In the flowers of the springtime, And in the stars of night. The heart is like a treasure chest, That's filled with souvenirs, Its there we keep the memories, We've gathered through the years. We cannot lose the ones we love, For they will always stay, In all that's bright and beautiful, Around us every day. Lovingly remembered by wife Marjorie, children Debra, Mark, Shawn and Bob. Grandchildren Joshua, Cassandra and Taylor.

TAILOR/TAYLOR, Sidney (February 18, 1932-April 25, 2007)
It will be one year April 30th that we held your Celebration of Life Service at the Lions Den / Oakview Centre with a large number of people in attendance, many old and new Friends remembering you. Thank you to everyone who was there with their warm comfort and kind expressions of sympathy. The many cards and donations to both Alzheimer's and Cancer Funds were both generous and a great tribute to a gentle and compassionate man who had fought both illnesses&hellip
This was the year of the 1sts. All the times that you were not with us at events, and always expecting you to come in the door, see you in the kitchen window watching for me to come home.
We had moved to Wasaga Beach in 1974 when you were hired by the Town to be the Public Works Manager. Clair Robertson was the Mayor of the recently incorporated Town and you remained lifelong Friends.
Your past work experience was with the Department of Highways when Highways 400 and 401 were being constructed. You were employed with the City of Barrie for over 20 years, and you also moonlighted to earn extra to support your family.
You were President of the Barrie Jaycees and coached a Minor hockey team for #441 Royal Canadian Air Force Association, and worked as bingo chairmen for them. In the beach you coached a minor hockey team, and then joined the Lions club in 1974. You held many positions including president. One of the first projects that you helped with was canvassing for money to help save the arena. You also would travel with a live lion to conventions parades in other towns promoting the beach. You were honoured with the highest awards, Helen Keller, and Melvin John's fellow. The club held a moving memorial service on your day. You retired from the town at 60, but never quit working part time with Ainleys, and later with Clair. This of course helped to pursue your favourite past time -golfing and you had many trips, mostly to Jamaica. One year your son Greg came home calling you Disco Daddy. Dancing being another thing you loved to do.
The high point of your life was when you were inducted into the Canadian Boxing Hall of Fame in Recognition of your years as an Amateur Boxer in Barrie, Base Borden and Toronto in the 40s and 50s.
The months prior to your passing were filled with many special events, including our Surprise 40th Wedding Anniversary and your 75th Birthday, a special date as it was shared with your mother and our youngest granddaughter Tianna.
You found comfort and Friends attending Lighthouse Church and Pastor Paul attended, and spoke at the service and supported us along with the congregation. A quiet man, honest and unassuming with high principles, your family was always very proud, and also appreciated your wry sense of humour.
We loved you dearly and miss you so very much. Now with God, always in our hearts.
Your wife Jean, Children; Joanne (Kevin), Dan (Sandra), Debra, Gerry, Greg (Val), Wendy (Chad), Grandchildren; Jason, Belinda, Jessica, Rachelle, Tianna, Sister; Ann, Brother; Doug.

STAPLETON, Arnold Grieve
Joined his wife Helen (née PRESTON) and soul mate of 49 years on Wednesday, December 19, 2007. Born August 2, 1918 in Stratford, Ontario, he is survived by his second wife Mary MacLEOD, brother Bill, brother-in-law Hugh SHORTILL, children Joan BOXER (Richard,) Jeff (Patti,) Diana (Bill TAILOR/TAYLOR,) and Arn (Peggy.) Grandchildren Sarah, John, Todd, Marley, Preston and Katie will sorely miss their Poppa. Uncle Arn leaves giant shoes to fill in the lives of the many Stapleton/Preston relatives spread throughout the world. As corporate lawyer (having graduated from Osgoode Hall in 1950), Director of Personnel and chief labour contract negotiator for General Motors of Canada over a 29 year career, A.G. was the youngest director in the company's history. His was the voice of reason - the calm amidst many a storm during one of the most challenging eras in the United Auto Workers/General Motors contract evolution. Many said that Arn's unique ability to compartmentalize complicated concepts won over both union foes and management associates alike. He was able to maintain composure by utilizing a wonderful sense of humour centered around a quick wit and well placed one-liners. A man of few words, when he spoke, people listened. An English scholar (Words Are Important!), a history and travel buff, a Wagnerian connoisseur, a lover of opera and Shakespeare and one heck of a bridge and chess player, Arn was a 50+ year subscriber to the Stratford Festival (his second most favorite place after the family cottage at Inverhuron Beach). Always willing to give his ample talents to worthy causes, Arn served as Chairman and long time director of the Oshawa General Hospital, board member of both St. Andrew's Church in Oshawa and First-St. Andrew's United Church in London, and was a member in standing of the Law Society of Canada. In the words of his beloved Shakespeare -"to thine own self be true". A celebration of Arn's life will be held at First-St. Andrew's United Church, 350 Queens Avenue at Waterloo, London on Saturday, January 5 at 1: 00 p.m. Reception to follow. Cremation and Spring interment at Avondale Cemetery, Stratford. Memorial contributions to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 633 Colborne Street, Suite 150, London, Ontario N6B 2V3 would be gratefully appreciated.
"Safe Journey, Dad."

TAILOR/TAYLOR, Thomas Laurence
Father, gramps, Dieppe survivor, PoW, humanitarian. Born March 3, 1914, in Calgary. Died June 22 in Ottawa of pneumonia, aged 93.
By Joanne OSBORNE, Virginia TAILOR/TAYLOR, Tom TAILOR/TAYLOR and Joann MAPLESDEN, Page L8
Tommy was a gentleman - he looked just as distinguished in a business suit as he did in overalls sitting on a tractor at his Beaver Valley, Ontario, farm.
Tommy was the second son of Edmund and Edna TAILOR/TAYLOR. At 12, he went to Trinity College School in Port Hope, Ontario In 1929 his father died suddenly; Tommy continued his education with support from the school and the parents of his roommates.
A natural athlete and leader, he captained hockey, football and cricket teams. He later became one of the school's life governors and was the first president of the alumni association he helped establish.
In May, 1933, Tommy began working for Manufacturers Life Insurance Co., calculating mortgages by hand. In 1940 he joined The Royal Regiment of Canada, and in 1942 was shipped to England as a lieutenant with the Second Division to begin training for Operation Jubilee - the Dieppe raid.
On August 19, Tommy led his men across the stony beach. Of the 35 men, he was the only one to survive the horrific climb to the top. He took shrapnel in his leg, and, out of ammunition, he and a group of artillery men took cover until nightfall and eventual capture. Tommy endured three years at Oflag VIIB, a PoW officers camp in Bavaria.
Back in Toronto, Tommy rejoined Manulife. He married Mary Helen RENNIE and had three children, Joanne, Virginia and Tom. Tommy was instrumental in expanding Manulife's real-estate portfolio throughout North America and England. He retired from the company after 42 years but remained active in the investment field with McLeod Young Weir Ltd.
The war years had a marked effect on Tommy; he worked through his demons by helping others. His years of compassionate contribution to Renascent House helped others who fought alcoholism.
Tommy always had a cheerful greeting for everyone. His later years were spent in his "beloved Beaver Valley," where he had an active social life and embraced his seven grandchildren. With a twinkle in his eye, he endeared himself to people.
After Helen's death in 2001, Tommy was cared for at the Perley and Rideau Veterans' Health Centre in Ottawa. He passed away peacefully with his children at his side. His ashes will be taken to France by his children and scattered on the beach in remembrance of the fallen war heroes.
Tommy, Gramps, Captain TAILOR/TAYLOR, will forever be our Canadian hero. He was brave, he suffered, he endured, but most of all he loved his family, his Friends, his school and his country.
Joanne OSBORNE, Virginia TAILOR/TAYLOR and Tom TAILOR/TAYLOR are Thomas's children, and Joann MAPLESDEN is his daughter-in-law.

He used his brush as a weapon to empower the powerless
Once a sincere and ardent Communist, he spent more than 60 years depicting strikes, refugee camps, political rallies, native reserves and the lives of ordinary working people
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S12
Toronto -- Bill STAPLETON was more than just another artist with a social conscience. His documentary art prodded, pushed, shamed, confounded and made people think (and sometimes squirm). He knew that not many people wanted to hang socially relevant art like his over their living-room sofas. It was just as well.
No bucolic landscapes, postcard portraits or pictures of fruit for him, but fulminations against inequality, oppression, poverty and the misery of society's dispossessed. These were powerful reminders of humanity's shortcomings, but also depictions of the inner strength and dignity of people accustomed to hardship.
In the words of his biographer, Mr. STAPLETON held "strong, unabashedly partisan empathy" with the compositions the artist called "Human-scapes."
Largely unsung, though he was once dubbed "the People's Artist," Mr. STAPLETON was a committed socialist, activist and a sensitive, persuasive man "who celebrated the dignity and independence of the human spirit without irony but not without humour," wrote C.H. (Marty) Gervais in People In Struggle: The Life and Art of Bill Stapleton (Penumbra Press; 1992).
Working in a variety of media - pen-and-ink, charcoal, watercolour, ink wash, oils and acrylics - Mr. STAPLETON spent more than 60 years depicting strikes and picket lines where workers squared off against police and company goons, refugee camps where he heard tales of torture, women's rallies and the lives of ordinary working people, and native reservations where he faithfully recorded disgusting poverty.
"Sketching is honest and immediate," he'd say. "You can't go back and pretty it up."
His artistic activism wasn't limited to Canada. He journeyed to Mexico and Central America to document injustice and despair with nothing more than brushstrokes.
"People have been neglected," Mr. STAPLETON explained on his 90th birthday, "and that's why I've concentrated on them. Social art doesn't play enough of a role in art." He saw his role as almost journalistic, a visual Upton Sinclair whose solidarity with his subjects only hardened. Mr. STAPLETON was committed to using his craft "as a tool and weapon for the benefit of the powerless and the denunciation of the powerful," Mr. Gervais found.
Collections of Mr. STAPLETON's work are housed in the National Archives of Canada and, ironically for a man who worked so hard toward peace, in the Canadian War Museum. In 2006, he donated more than 1,500 canvases and sketches to the Cabbagetown/Regent Park Community Museum in Toronto.
Born and raised in middle-class comfort in conservative small-town Ontario, his father was a salesman. A 1933 strike at a local food plant that was violently suppressed left a deep mark on him. "The father of a friend of his was beaten in that strike," said his daughter, Lynn TAILOR/TAYLOR. " That left a very raw impression. It had a lot to do with influencing his politics later in life."
He planned to become an engineer and, to that end, accepted a job surveying the Trans-Canada Highway in White River, Ontario, north of Lake Superior. The Depression was on and he was grateful for the work. His older brother, Bruce, an illustrator well known for his war-bonds and Red Cross posters, sent him some paints, and Mr. STAPLETON sketched the scenery and his fellow workers - 12 to a tarpaper bunkhouse. With little else to do after long, gruelling days, he honed his talents, sending pieces to his brother, who returned them with notations suggesting improvements.
He toiled in the north for 18 months and, with $800 in savings, headed to New York City where he studied art at the U.S. National Academy of Design, and where the apolitical 21-year-old first encountered radical politics. His roommates in a teeming tenement near Central Park were leftists, and the Big Apple was a magnet for Marxists. Finding and sketching hobos and street urchins a stone's throw from the gleaming towers of Wall Street helped seal his political views.
But New York was as competitive as people had warned. After two years, he failed to find work as an illustrator and came home. In Toronto, he worked as a printing salesman, which allowed him to take evening classes at the Ontario College of Art.
In 1941, Mr. STAPLETON was emboldened to join the Communist Party of Canada after Ottawa banned it. This was no act of petulance but a sincere belief that the party could better achieve the dreams of social justice than other leftist groups. (He would quit the party in the early 1950s, dismayed by Stalin's treatment of artists in the Soviet Union.)
Later in 1941, when the Soviet Union entered the Second World War, he signed up for service in the Royal Canadian Air Force and became a pilot. It was around this time he first achieved recognition. A work of his titled Canadian Airman was included in a travelling Canadian military exhibit.
Shipped to several bases in England, he ended up with the 418th Royal Canadian Air Force Squadron in North Yorkshire and trained on Wellington and Lancaster bombers. But the war ended before he could fly any missions.
Meantime, he'd sketched.
"It got so I was annoyed if we had to fly because it cut into my art time," he would recall to his biographer. "I usually rode a bicycle, with a small canvas bag I could sling over my shoulder, and I'd pedal off to sketch. Fortunately for me, when the fog set in - and this was quite often, English weather being what it is - we'd be grounded for two or three days. It was a great opportunity, and not having to make art to make money was like being subsidized."
At war's end, he chose to stay in London to study at the famed Slade School of Art. Though his own war art portfolio grew, an appointment as an official war artist eluded him, and he returned to Canada in time to document two seminal strikes, one by Stelco workers in Hamilton in 1946, and the other by the Canadian Seaman's Union in 1949 on the waterfronts of Welland, Toronto and Montreal.
That same year, he married Margaret (Mickey) RYLANCE. He'd met her at an art show, and later explained that he fell for her despite the fact she believed in God.
With a family to support, he started his own advertising agency and bought a cottage and a split-level house in Toronto. The middle-class life was maybe not what communists aspired to, but "with a wife and three daughters and a couple of mortgages, I had to have a job - so I went into the advertising business. It was a living." There was a line he once heard about working in advertising and loved to quote: "I never told my mother I was in advertising. She thought I played piano in a brothel."
In 1974, he visited Russia on a cultural exchange. Describing it as the trip that had the greatest impact on him, Mr. STAPLETON reconciled conflicted feelings. "They led the world in science and were the first to the moon. Freedom of the sexes, women were ship captains and factory heads. Socialism led the world then, but was betrayed from within and without. I still believe in revolution."
He divorced his wife after 23 years of marriage - there were no hard feelings and the two stayed Friends - and moved to Toronto's Cabbagetown neighbourhood ("it was here I joined the human race") where he began depicting ordinary people doing ordinary things. For about a decade, he was resident artist at three Toronto landmarks: The Hotel Winchester, the Paramount Tavern, and the Trojan Horse Coffee House. He'd sit for hours, sketching and painting exiled Chilean musicians, leftist activists, and the regulars.
"I liked pubs like the Paramount," he recalled. "It attracted a mostly black clientele. The guys were cocky, exuberant and graceful; they just had this way of moving and expressing themselves. And their music - wow! The mixed clientele provided a real slice of life - fights, shootings, stabbings and four police vans on a Saturday night."
As for his style, it had a relaxed structure but his lines were "direct and bold, drawn with rock-steady hand and a sharp eye," noted Carol MOORE- EDE, Mr. STAPLETON's friend and curator. "He painted in startlingly vibrant colours and bold strokes, as forthright in his technique as he was in his social convictions."
One reviewer lauded his oeuvre as being in the tradition of Edgar Degas and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.
His pace quickened in his sixties and seventies. He journeyed to Nicaragua in 1982 to sketch the suffering and despair caused by the country's political upheaval. In 1984, he went to Mexico to document the scores of Guatemalan refugees flooding the border in a struggle for safety and food. The following year, he was part of a delegation that travelled to Spain to seek recognition for the 1,239 Canadians of the Mackenzie-Papineau Battalion (the "Mac-Paps") who fought the fascists in the Spanish Civil War. And in 1989, he joined the Innu of Sheshatshit, Labrador, to protest low-level test flights of North Atlantic Treaty Organization fighter jets and bombers over traditional native hunting grounds. An exhibit was mounted in Toronto.
He belonged to Veterans Against Nuclear Arms, and in the early 1980s, helped mobilize artists in a national disarmament movement, Arts for Peace, chaired by novelist Margaret Laurence and numbering the likes of Pierre Berton, Norman Jewison, Margaret Atwood and Karen Kain.
In his later years, he volunteered for ArtHeart, a community-based effort that provides free access to studio space, instruction, and art supplies. He'd give away quick sketches to children.
Just last December, he received the Ontario Federation of Labour's first Lifetime Cultural Achievement Award. His age prevented his attendance but he received a standing ovation nonetheless.
Asked by his biographer whether, at 75, he still had "the fire" in him, Mr. STAPLETON reflected, "Sure, I still get passionate about causes, about inequity and inequality, about what's wrong with our society, with the environment and with the economic system… Look, you have to have anger, passion, indignation, love, tenderness - the whole gamut of human emotion - if you're going to be a real artist. Injustice is always with us, and one of the jobs of responsible artists is to respond to it. Art becomes an essential voice in all the chaos of our times: A tool for bearing witness, and a weapon for effecting change."
He never made a living at art, he admitted, "but I lived through it."
William Johnson STAPLETON was born in Stratford, Ontario on January 24, 1916. He died in Bracebridge, Ontario on February 5, 2008. He was 92. He is survived by daughters Lynn TAILOR/TAYLOR, Judith STAPLETON and Sharon SHERMAN. He also leaves his former wife, Mickey, and five grandchildren.
An exhibition of Mr. STAPLETON's selected works, is on display at Riverdale Farm, 201 Winchester Street, Toronto, Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. until March 23.

HADWEN, John Gaylard
Husband, father, grandfather, ambassador, lover of life. Born April 18, 1923, in Toronto. Died August 5, 2007, in Lake of Bays, Ontario, of a heart attack, aged 84.
By Mary TAILOR/TAYLOR, Page L6
John HADWEN always had something to tell you.
A man of wide experience, varied interests and great intellectual curiosity, he usually had some project in view or some cause to defend.
He might want to talk about Holbein, whose paintings he loved and about whom he completed an excellent monograph just before he died. Or he might discuss nuclear disarmament or defend the foreign service, which he felt was often treated badly.
A big man with a big voice, John had a great appetite for life, for books and for food. As he said, "Any damn fool can be miserable."
Like Shakespeare's Falstaff, he was always genial, reserving his anger for the causes he promoted so passionately.
His years at the University of Toronto's Trinity College were interrupted by a three-year stint in the Canadian Forces. John was among the Canadians who fought their way up Italy during the Second World War.
After a year at the London School of Economics he joined Canada's foreign service, where he spent 37 years. He continued to take an interest in foreign affairs until he died. All but two of his posts were in Asia, three as head of mission. His affection for this area was shown by his support for the Gurkhas, soldiers for Britain whom he got to know in Nepal.
In Ottawa he was executive assistant to Paul Martin Sr., secretary of state for external affairs, for whom he had affectionate respect. Interested in development, John was committed to the Colombo Plan for Co-operative Economic Development in South and Southeast Asia, and also helped create the precursor to the Canadian International Development Agency.
A great egalitarian, John treated all who worked with him, whether at home or abroad, with care and compassion. He was not an ambassador who lost the common touch.
One of John's best decisions was to marry Shirley BROWN, the sister of a school friend. Fortunately, she shared his enthusiasm for foreign posts and for bridge. John was a great family man, devoted to his four sons, their wives and his 14 grandchildren.
Frequent family celebrations were large affairs. One such event was John and Shirley's golden wedding anniversary, which they celebrated with a huge barbecue; another was the annual family regatta at the Brown cottage at Lake of Bays near Huntsville, Ontario
In later years John's health deteriorated, but he was fortunate to escape a lingering decline. On a fine summer day he suddenly fell asleep at Lake of Bays, surrounded by his family.
Mary TAILOR/TAYLOR is John's friend.

CLARKE, John Cambrey " Jack"
Peacefully at Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital on the morning of February 24th, 2008, in his 93rd year. Predeceased by his cherished wife of over 60 years Jeanne Gabrielle CLARKE (née CARBONNEAU.) Beloved father of Joan Alice BOURNE and her husband Ken, Peter John CLARKE and his wife Carole, Mary Lou TAILOR/TAYLOR and her husband Harry. Dearest grandfather of Paul, Peter and his wife Jennifer, Tara and her husband Joseph, Stephanie, Jacqueline and Danielle and great-grandfather to Connor, Blake and Andrea. Predeceased by his first son David and his first grand_son Jeffrey. Jack was the youngest and last survivor of four siblings and had a truly full and blessed life. Together with his two brothers Lorne and Jim carried on the wholesale produce business started by his father Samuel Wilmot CLARKE under the name Clarke's Produce Limited. The company carried on business under Samuel in the greater Toronto area and was subsequently expanded by his sons to all of southern Ontario and Muskoka. After nearly 90 years in business the company was sold to Everist Brothers in 1985 and Jack continued with Everist until he was 81 years of age. He was the ultimate master salesman. His associates would say he could sell sand to a desert nomad. He was the consummate businessman and entrepreneur and in addition to the wholesale produce business he was a real estate developer, financier and manufacturer. Towards the end of his business career at eighty years of age he had the respect of customers and of every notable chef in the City of Toronto. Jack's classic line when asked how he felt was "I feel like a million". Jack's philosophy of life was unbridled optimism with acts of kindness and love of his fellow man. His membership in the Toronto Board of Trade stood for over fifty years. His enthusiasm for all aspects of the business world contributed to his zeal for life. Jack will be sadly missed by his family and all who were fortunate to know him. A service of remembrance will be held on Saturday March 1st at 11: 45 a.m. at the Chapel of The Old Mill Inn, 21 Old Mill Road, Toronto.

Artist who specialized in the everyday enjoyed success that was extraordinary
Originally a photo realist, he returned again and again to the well of inspiration that was his childhood. His work is an exploration of memory and an affectionate record of a vanished life
By Kate TAILOR/TAYLOR, Page S7
Ontario artist Brian JONES wore a suit only twice in his life: the day he was married and the day he met the Queen. From boyhood, he knew that his mind full of shapes and colours and his love of popular culture could never be contained within a 9-to-5 job. By the time he was a teenager, he had picked the visual arts as a career.
Mr. JONES was a figurative painter who specialized in distinctive scenes of small-town Ontario life in a signature style featuring bright colours, flattened spaces and curiously inflated human figures. Influenced by the haunting village scenes of 20th-century British realist Stanley Spencer, he achieved an odd mix of nostalgia, humour and the occasional hint of menace with his slightly off-kilter images of neighbours shovelling snow or walking dogs, lunching office workers fending off a bee or children dwarfed by looming parents.
Returning again and again to the well of inspiration that was his own childhood in Chatham, Ontario, he set many of his paintings in the 1950s and 1960s, including men in homburg hats and cars with fins in paintings that often used a low perspective point as though recorded from a child's point of view. At their most arresting, his paintings read as much as an exploration of visual memory as they do an affectionate record of daily life in a simpler era.
"I always described his works as too much line, too much colour: you either love it or you hate it. But if you love it, boy, you love it," said his Toronto dealer, Alan LOCH. " The paintings made you smile."
Mr. JONES spent his boyhood in Chatham, where his father worked as an appliance salesman at Eaton's while his mother, who had worked for Union Gas before her children were born, cared for the family. He showed talent with a pencil from as early as age 5. As a teenager devoted to both playing guitar and drawing pictures, he left home to study art at H.B. Beal Secondary School in nearby London.
Beal was famous as the technical high school that had nurtured a previous generation of London artists, most notably Greg Curnoe, Murray Favro and Jack Chambers, with whom Mr. JONES apprenticed briefly after graduation.
He helped out in Mr. Chambers's studio during the period that the renowned realist was painting Sunday Morning No. 2, an image of the artists' young sons watching cartoons on the living-room television. When he left the studio, Mr. Chambers offered him his choice of payment - either money or art. Mr. JONES picked a watercolour of a papaya that later showed up in the background of one of his own paintings, Cold Front.
Mr. JONES positioned himself as an heir to Mr. Chambers's and Mr. Curnoe's legacy of a determinedly local and unapologetically representational art that offered a vigorous retort to international abstraction. Initially a photo realist himself, he gradually developed an expressive approach he referred to as his "neighbours style," with its bright colours and rounded figures.
While his subject matter was always local, he was an avid student of the modern masters, including Pablo Picasso and Francis Bacon, and admired both Mr. Chambers and the Dutch master Johannes Vermeer for their ability to paint light. "He devoured art books like they were going out of style," Mr. LOCH said. "He absorbed everything."
Mr. Spencer remained perhaps his greatest artistic influence. The idiosyncratic British painter was, like Mr. JONES, deeply rooted in a small place and used the local to capture the universal. Mr. Spencer spent most of his life in the village of Cookham in Berkshire, using it as the backdrop both for everyday scenes and for his biblical paintings, such as Christ Preaching at Cookham Regatta. Both Mr. Spencer's affectionate view of human foible and his rounded figures are echoed in Mr. JONES's neighbour paintings, which include an image of children in winter warming their hands on the dryer vent at the side of a house.
These were always paintings that people liked. From the start of his career, Mr. JONES met with commercial success, declining to apply for government grants and paying the rent on his London apartment by selling the paintings he placed in the window of the art shop downstairs. He began showing at the Nancy Poole Studio (now merged with the LOCH Gallery) in Toronto in 1975, and mounted an exhibition there about every 18 months afterward, including what was to be his last show in November, 2007, just two months before his diagnosis with cancer.
"People realized really early how good he was," said Michael GIBSON, a London art dealer who also sells his work. "A lot of it was about regionalism, a movement that came out of London. Brian was one of the sparks."
In 1982, Mr. JONES was introduced to the Queen as a young Canadian achiever, and in 1984 he left London to make the move to Toronto, where he painted in a McCaul Street apartment overlooking the Art Gallery of Ontario and Ontario College of Art and Design.
"I do like to paint simple, unpretentious things," he wrote in an artist's statement in 1990. "Small houses, kitchens with breakfast nooks, garages and backyards, with people going about their daily activities. Things that I know and remember. The familiar scenes may look mundane on the surface, but I think they say a lot about our lives. Sometimes, the quiet neighbourhoods that I paint are pierced by a threatening undercurrent and a vaguely sinister quality. Sometimes it is all sunshine and light, with happiness as the key emotion. I never know which feeling will overtake me [when I begin.]"
His eye was always looking for images he wanted to paint, but he could never be given commissions. Mr. LOCH remembers one client who particularly wanted him to paint a picture of a panting dog hanging out a car window. It struck her as a typically Brian JONES image and while the dealer agreed with that judgment, he did not pass on the request. "You could never influence him to paint something."
Mr. JONES continued to paint in his neighbours style throughout his Toronto years and returned to small-town life itself when he and his wife, journalist Susanne Tausig JONES, moved to Collingwood, Ontario, in 2000.
He remained a great fan of the music of the 1950s and 1960s, and an enthusiastic guitarist. He was also an avid collector of popular art forms, including guitars, old television sets and radios, and, most of all, toys. The McCaul Street apartment was overrun by the couple's huge collection of antique mechanical toys; their Collingwood garage houses two cars from the 1950s.
"You get a sense of who he is by looking at his paintings," Mr. GIBSON said. "He had this great talent, but he really did not have a big ego… People think artists are different, but they are not: He was a normal guy who liked to play darts and listen to the Beatles."
Brian Rendel JONES was born June 1, 1950, in Chatham, Ontario He died of pancreatic cancer in Collingwood, Ontario, on February 27, 2008. He was 57. He is survived by wife, Susanne Tausig JONES, and by his brother Bradley.

CARSEN, Clementine Ruth (née NAHM)
(Sunday December 29th, 1918-Sunday April 6th, 2008)
In her 89th year, suddenly, after a brief stay in hospital, from lung disease. Clementine leaves behind her husband Walter, daughter Johanni and son Robert. Clementine immigrated to Canada with her parents from Mannheim, Germany, shortly before World War 2. She adjusted to a new way of life, set to work in several capacities, married, and was instrumental in helping her husband to build up his new business (W. Carsen Co). She later worked as a very active member of the Volunteer Committee of the Art Rental Department of the Art Gallery of Ontario, of which she was a Founder Member. But it was her discovery of yoga which completely altered her life. She became a remarkable teacher, and her gentleness combined with her intuition and generosity made her a much loved teacher, first in Toronto, then at the Prem Anandham Ashram in Beaverton, Ontario and in more recent years in Naples, Florida, where her classes were always full to overflowing. She donated the proceeds of her teaching to charity, which was always an important part of her life. Clementine was a devoted wife and mother, and a loving, concerned friend. She had a wonderful sense of humour, boundless curiosity and genuine interest in others. She will be greatly missed by everyone that she met. Her family is grateful to her many Friends who gave her so much love and support in recent years and especially during the 3 weeks she spent in hospital. Particular thanks go to Doctor Weaver and the medical and nursing staff at the Physicians Regional Medical Centre in Naples, Florida, and also to Doctor Michael BENTLEY- TAILOR/TAYLOR and Doctor Ian FRASER at the Toronto East General Hospital. Her family would also like to thank her wonderful spiritual guide Arundhati STEINMEISTER and her dear friend Lianne DI ROCCO for helping her through her brief illness. Memorial services will be held at a later date in Toronto, Ontario; Naples, Florida and also in Europe. Please email: jcarsen@sympatico.ca to be kept informed.

BOXER, Nancy Isabel (née BAKER)
On May 8th, 2008, her 88th birthday, surrounded by family, passed away peacefully, at home. Nancy, treasured wife of Dick, for 64 rich and wonderful years, beloved mother and mother-in-law of Richard and Joan BOXER, Shelagh and Christopher TAILOR/TAYLOR and Jeffrey BOXER and Nancy FLANDERS. Adored grandmother of Sarah, John and Todd BOXER, and Ryan, Patrick and Jeffrey TAILOR/TAYLOR. Cherished sister of Gina LAMB (Reverend Bill LAMB) and predeceased by her sister Kathleen WOODS and her brother Graham BAKER. In addition, Nancy will be missed by her companion Mila VILLOTE, who provided her compassion, help and love during the last six years. Born in 1920, in Toronto, Nancy attended Bishop Strachan School, Cheltenham Ladies College (United Kingdom) and the University of Toronto (Pi Phi), where she majored in child studies. She taught briefly before joining the navy (Women's Royal Canadian Naval Service) and served on the east coast until the war ended and she returned home to Toronto. An example for all, Nancy lived life to the fullest. Warm, gracious, informed -- she always had a kind word to say about everyone. Thoughtful, charitable, forgiving -- she was a devout Christian as her church and faith played an important role in her life. Nancy always devoted her life to her family and Friends. For her efforts in supporting her community including the Garden Club of Toronto, the Royal Ontario Museum, the Toronto Hunt, the Order of St. Lazarus, and many other organizations, she was awarded the Queen's Jubilee Medal for public service in 1977. A private family service and interment will be held at Saint Paul's Church and the Mount Pleasant Cemetery. A memorial service to celebrate Nancy's life will be announced in this paper later. For those wishing to honour Nancy's life in a material way, donations to Evangelical Medical Aid Society, Box 820, Station Main, Stouffville, Ontario L4A 7Z9, would be appreciated.

Joe was also the beloved grandfather - a role he cherished - to Laura, Andrew, Sydney and Calum (and a fifth who is on the way, name pending). He treasured being Uncle Joe to Bruce, Brian, and Douglas EMERSON. Joe also had a special relationship with his late uncle, Jack DRENNAN, who's wife Miriam maintained that special bond. During his year-long battle with cancer, all those who knew him were inspired by his perseverance, stoicism, selflessness, and enduring sense of humour. The family will receive Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), on Saturday, June 21st where a Memorial Service will be held at 12 noon. A reception will follow. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society or The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario would be appreciated by the family.
