Tool maker became an inventor to found a firm that led the world
After apprenticing at General Electric in Peterborough, Ontario, he went out on his own and developed a process that was soon in demand. At its peak, his company had five plants in the U.S., Canada, and Britain
By Allison LAWLOR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Halifax -- An industrial innovator whose mind never seemed to sleep, William (Bill) FISHER created machines that have been used to make everything from monopoly pieces and bicycle gears, to car parts and the blades for jet engines.
A tool maker by trade, Mr. FISHER founded Peterborough, Ontario-based FisherCast Global, previously known as Fisher Gauge, in 1942. Over the next few decades he turned it into an international player specializing in precision die casting, which involves forcing melted metal at high speed into exactly-designed moulds. At its peak, the company had more than 700 employees and five plants in Canada, Britain and the United States.
"He was so passionate about what he did," said his daughter Jane ULRICH.
Mr. FISHER wasn't just passionate about his job. He was a perfectionist, who often got his best ideas in the middle of the night. He never went far from his work. Initially, he lived across the street from the Fisher Gauge plant, and later in a house behind the plant. The installation was just 30 metres from his backdoor, so it wasn't a surprise for employees working the night shift to see him hunched over the drafting table in his office at 3 a.m.
"He would get these brain waves at ungodly hours," Ms. Ulrich said. "His mind was always going."
One of the secrets to his success was an absence of stress. "He didn't worry because he wasn't in it for the money," she said. "He just never dreamed it [the company] would get to the size it did. It was so much bigger than he thought it would become."
He often said that if things didn't work out, he could always get a job again at Canadian General Electric Company (now GE Canada), where he started his career.
Born in England' industrial Midlands, Mr. FISHER fell in love with tools as a child and dreamed of following in his father's footsteps. His father, Fred, was a tool maker first in Britain and later in Canada. In 1923, the family emigrated to Canada and settled in Peterborough, where the elder Mr. FISHER got a job at Westclox, the makers of the Big Ben and Baby Ben alarm clocks.
Bill FISHER's dream came true. He left high school at 15 and apprenticed at General Electric. Earning 15 cents an hour, he learned what he called "the industrial facts of life." Within 10 years he was making gauges and other components for GE equipment destined for the front lines in the Second World War.
Mr. FISHER's first workshop was in an old chicken coop located behind his family home. He then moved his shop into the basement, just metres from his mother's laundry area.
After founding Fisher Gauge, he initially designed and manufactured tools and gauges for other companies in town. Early on, Canadian General Electric asked him to tackle the problem of attaching a disk to a thin shaft. It was just the kind of challenge he liked. His answer was to develop a hot-chamber, die-casting system that joined the two components with injected molten metal to precise tolerances. In the end, the assembly formed the core of an electric watt-hour meter.
By the mid-1950s, the North American meter industry had adopted the process. During the next 20 years, Mr. FISHER travelled the world, selling machines to leading meter companies. He continued to work on developing the process for a wide range of applications. In the late 1950s, both the telephone and automotive industries were looking for metal parts cast in zinc alloy, which led the company to adapt its hot-chamber, die-casting system and produce proprietary zinc alloy.
As Mr. FISHER's business grew, he asked his brothers Frank and Chester, who also apprenticed as tool makers at GE, to join him. (Interestingly, their father also signed on as a tool maker after retiring from Westclox.)
In 1954, Chester took over the management of Fisher Gauge, while Bill focused on what he loved best: finding solutions to problems.
"He was more of an innovator and an inventor," said Greg WALLING, current president of FisherCast Global. "He wasn't a paper pusher."
Mr. FISHER was the first to admit that selling was not his strong point.
"I was the world's worst salesman. I'd just go in and talk technically," he once said. Even so, the approach often worked. "If you can solve the problem for them, they don't care whether you're a salesman or not."
Fisher Gauge saw huge growth with the sale of zinc castings. In 1964, it opened a casting factory in Watertown, New York and the company went on to ship billions of castings for use in everything from car doors and games to window fixtures and telephone cables.
In parallel with the growth of the casting business, Mr. FISHER ventured into the aviation industry. In 1960, General Electric engineers in Massachusetts invited him to help with the machining of jet-engine blades. He came up with a solution in which the blade is encapsulated in zinc, and the capsule allows it to be gripped without damage for machining. The capsule is broken off when machining is complete. Later, when Rolls Royce engineers were struggling to make blades for the first Concorde passenger jet, Mr. FISHER was called to Scotland.
A precise man, Mr. FISHER loved his daily routines. He walked home every day for lunch and would follow his meal with a 30-minute nap, always making sure he did not sleep for a minute more or less.
A modest, unassuming man, Mr. FISHER's only real luxury was his 12-metre cabin cruiser which he loved to tour Georgian Bay in every summer with his wife Shirley. The one trip he never got to do was to take his boat to Florida. Seldom absent for more than a two weeks, he just couldn't pull himself away from his shop for the three weeks required to cruise south on the Intracoastal Waterway.
The last of the FISHER brothers, he retired in 1998. (Chester had died of cancer in 1992, and Frank died from a bee sting at 36.) He himself suffered a series of strokes and then a heart attack. For all that, he moved no further away than the house over the back fence. From there, he would watch FisherCast employees take their coffee breaks. Knowing they had 11-minute breaks, he would time them. If he saw some taking 13 or 14 minutes he would ask that his daughter Jane, who sits on the company's board of directors, talk to their managers about the problem. The company remains family-owned, but professionally managed.
Mr. FISHER received many awards during his career, and in 1986 he received an honorary law degree from Trent University.
William Fredrick FISHER was born on December 18, 1917, in Birmingham, England, and died on March 19, 2008, in Peterborough, Ontario He was 90, and suffered from congestive heart failure. He leaves his wife, Shirley, and his children Paul, Douglas, Susanne and Jane. He also leaves his sister, Eileen, eight grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.

WALLIS, Suzanne (née MANNING) (1944-2008)
On February 5, 2008, Suzanne WALLIS died unexpectedly in her home in Guelph, Ontario. Born in 1944 in Ottawa to George and Eleanor MANNING, Suzanne moved with them and brother Eric to Sarnia and then to Guelph, where she spent her childhood. Suzanne later attended Alma College for young women in Saint Thomas, Ontario, winning a scholarship for writing to attend the University of Western Ontario.
Always engaging and equally engaged, as a young woman Suzanne worked as a reporter for the London Free Press and for the Winnipeg Free Press. A social activist from early on, she lobbied publicly and successfully for causes ranging from social justice to the building of public schools in North York. Her affinities for politics and writing led her to earn a diploma in governmental legal administration from Seneca College. She later became Director of Communications for the Hon. Alvin Curling during his time as Ontario's Minister of Housing, and then Skills Development.
Suzanne's middle years were spent in Stouffville, Ontario, where she was a devoted and loving mother to Courtney, Ben, and Duff. During this time she also worked as a publicist for McClelland and Stewart, as a freelance writer for Chatelaine magazine and as a speechwriter for leaders of business, academia, and government.
Suzanne is remembered by all who met her as a passionate and compassionate woman who possessed the rare ability to make others feel valued. She lived by the words of one of her favourite authors, Margaret Laurence: "Know that although in the eternal scheme of things you are small, you are also unique and irreplaceable. As are all your fellow humans everywhere in the world." She remains unique and irreplaceable to her Friends, to her brother Eric of Victoria, and to her children Courtney, Ben, and Duff, and grandchildren Samantha, Julian, Brooke, and Elliott.
A private gathering of family and Friends will be held in June.

DELANEY, Joseph C.
We wish to express our many thanks to so many people who helped us at the time of Dad's passing June 9, 2008. We were very touched by the outpouring of generosity from our neighbours, relatives and Friends through the preparation of food, sympathy cards, mass card offerings, charitable and floral tributes. Dad was blessed to be surrounded by many caring people during his time at home over the last few years. His 'support staff' included kindness and care from Janet BILKE, Margie CAMPBELL, and Rosemary BALFOUR. In particular, Nancy O'REILLY is fondly remembered for her special attention in helping to organize his appointments, and ensuring he was able to attend mass and enjoy special music events such as 'Tuesday Toonies'. She became his 5th daughter. Upon relocating to the Ritz Villa in Mitchell, he enjoyed continued care and attention from the staff. He loved when the staff acknowledged him with "Hi Joe" - so happy that everyone knew his name! A special visitor he looked forward to her visiting and saying the rosary was Pauline (Geottler) HARTFIEL who shared her time with him reminiscing about many of the Dublin families from years ago. During the few days that Dad was at Stratford General Hospital, he received calming and gentle care from the nursing staff; we know that his most memorable visit was from Fr. Paul NICHOLSON who bestowed upon him the Sacrament of the Sick. We were overwhelmed with the support of Friends and family who attended the funeral visitation on Thursday. Special thanks to the ladies of the Seaforth Legion for their preparing a hot meal for our family between the two visiting times. Dad's funeral was shared with Friends and family and was beautifully concelebrated by Fr. Chris GILLESPIE and Fr. MOONEY. Dad always enjoyed the sounds of the pipe organ at St. Patrick's Church and we appreciated the gift of music from Brian ECKERT, the organist, and the choir members of St. Patrick's and St. Vincent De Paul. The Catholic Women's League provided a tasty lunch following the funeral mass. Our thanks to Ruth and Ross from Whitney-Ribey Funeral Home for the kindness they shared with our family throughout the funeral preparations. Although Dad lived a long and healthy life, it is still difficult to 'say goodbye'. We are comforted by our trust in a life afterward, that Dad is now reunited with Mom (Mamie) after 6½ years. His life is now complete. Yvonne and Steve SEILER, Mitchell; Pat and Charlene DELANEY, Dublin; Maureen and Paul VAN DE WALLE, Saint Marys; Jim DELANEY, London; Jayne and Brad WALSH, Egmondville and Lucille and Neil PANZIERA, Lambeth.

WALSH, James " Jim" Anthony
(Told you I wasn't feeling well)
'It is only with the heart the heart that one can see rightly what rightly; what is essential is invisible to the to the eye' - The Little Prince.
Always the optimist, believed in the goodness of others, a coach at business and at play, trusted all to do the right thing, married 34 wonderful years to his soul mate Heather (née ALEXANDER.) In his quiet times an avid reader, he loved a good biography, his heroes were Gandhi, St. Francis of Assisi, Benjamin Franklin, Nelson Mandela, and Muhammad Ali. Born in Two Mountains, moved into Montreal to attend Loyola College, upon graduation Jim joined Northern Electric in Personnel Management. In the early 70's he discovered sales, and spent the remainder of his career in sales and sales leadership positions. From '73 to '87 Jim held a variety of senior executive positions with Pitney Bowes of Canada. In late '87, Jim moved from the corporate world and began a new career in the general insurance business. His main objective was to have more time with his growing family of Heather and their three young boys, Matthew, Russell, and Graham. In his professional life, Jim's key to his success was his ability to identify, recruit, train and develop his staff to their maximum potential. He coached and convened local soccer and baseball, but his real passion was coaching rep hockey with the Markham Islanders and the Leaside Flames Hockey Clubs. He felt it was a privilege to work with the players and he enjoyed every minute of it. He will be greatly missed by his family and Friends. Jim is survived by Heather and their boys, his sister Ann WALSH of Two Mountains, special family friend Susan CHATTAWAY and many nephews and nieces. His sister Lin BEECROFT passed away in 1991. The family wants to thank Doctor BEZJAK and all the medical staff at Princess Margaret Hospital for their wonderful care since Jim was first diagnosed with lung cancer in 2001. We also would like to thank all those responsible for Canada's great healthcare system. A very special thank you to Ted TOBIAS for his support, loving care and Friendship. On April 16th 2008, Jim peacefully passed on at home, surrounded by his sons, in the arms of his devoted wife. A celebration of Jim's life will take place in Markham at Chapel Ridge Funeral Home, 8911 Woodbine Ave, 905-305-8508.

TRIMBLE, William Burbage Smyth
Educator, died at Sunrise of Aurora on Monday, June 2nd 2008. Born in California, he grew up in Toronto, obtaining his education at the University of Toronto, from which he held four degrees. His education was interrupted by five years of service with the R.C.N.V.R., most of which was spent on loan to the Royal Navy. He served first in Combined Operations and was on the carrier ship M.V. Ettrick when it was torpedoed on its return from the North African landings. He went back to sea as a Fighter Direction Officer, attached to the first squadron of night fighters ever to operate from an aircraft carrier. He was awarded a Mention in Despatches on one of several Murmansk convoys. He was discharged in 1945 as a Lieutenant-Commander. Back in civilian life, he saw himself first and foremost as a teacher. Along with any administrative duties, he always insisted on remaining part time in the classroom. He served as Vice- President of Ryerson, professor of education at the University of Toronto, Vice-President of Humber College and first Chairman of The Board of George Brown College. He and his wife (Dorothy ROBERTSON) spent three years in Lesotho, Africa in the 1970s where he helped to implement a World Bank education project and Dorothy was Field Supervisor for Oxfam and Save the Children Fund. Bill had a gift for writing. His family treasure his letters and stories, but many students will remember his texts, Understanding the Canadian Economy and Basic Economics for Lesotho. While accomplished in his profession, Bill's devotion to family was a priority. A man ahead of his times, he was a sensitive and caring husband and father, actively engaged in the raising of his children. He leaves his wife of sixty-three years, daughters Catherine WOLFE, Virginia WALSH (Michael WALSH) and Margaret NORRIE, son Alan TRIMBLE (Andrea ROTH,) grandchildren Martin WOLFE (Karen HISLOP), Heather WOLFE (Dean RIMANDO), Thomas WALSH, Alan WALSH, Mira TRIMBLE, Rebecca ALTON (Eric ALTON) and Hannah NORRIE, step-grandchildren Joshua McKAY and Oliver McKAY and great-grand_sons Henry and Alexander WOLFE. Bill and his family very much appreciated the compassion and support of Sunrise and Community Care Access Centre caregivers who enabled Dorothy and Bill to remain together during his last years.

CASEY, Michael Thomas, C.M., M.D., (F.R.C.S.C,) F.A.C.S.
Dr. Tom CASEY died peacefully at home in Halifax on June 10th, 2008 after a long illness. Born in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia on July 8th, 1929, the eighth of nine children of the late Thomas J. CASEY and Hannah (MacINTYRE) CASEY, he is survived by his wife Margaret (MacDONALD,) sons Michael (Jane) and Patrick (Monica,) Halifax, and daughter, Martha (Sean), New York and grandchildren Isabel and Thomas CASEY. He is also survived by his sister Joan CASEY, New York, brother Jim, Vancouver, and niece Mary CLANCY, Halifax. Besides his parents he was predeceased by sisters Catherine CLANCY, Sara WALSH, Jessie CASEY, Mary CASEY and brothers Michael in infancy and Patrick. Brought up in Halifax, he graduated from Saint Mary's High School and then attended Dalhousie University graduating with B.Sc. and M.D. degrees from the Faculty of Medicine in 1953. He trained at New York University's surgical residency program at Bellevue Hospital followed by further residency training in thoracic surgery in New York.
Tom practised surgery for over 40 years in Halifax, during which he developed the thoracic surgical service at the Halifax Infirmary. He was renowned and respected for his clinical skills with a commitment to patient care which was legendary. He shared his knowledge and concern for others as an Associate Professor of surgery at Dalhousie where he was recognized as a dedicated clinician and teacher of residents and medical students. Prior to beginning his surgical career in Halifax, he did something he had idealistically always wanted to do - he went to Nigeria for a year as a surgeon at a hospital in the bush region of the country. It was a rewarding period for him where he learned how much could be accomplished without the "so-called essentials" of a modern hospital. This experience led to a life long interest in third world medicine which he pursued through volunteer service in Haiti, St. Lucia and Guyana.
His lifelong dedication to his patients in Halifax and the developing world was recognized in 2002 with the Elizabeth Seton award and in 2004, an appointment to the Order of Canada. His quick wit and intellect will be missed. As will his ability to captivate with colourful stories of his remarkable life.
Visitation will be at Snow's Funeral Home on Wednesday June 11th, from 7: 00 to 9:00 p.m. and Thursday, June 12th from 2:00 to 4:00 and 7: 00 to 9:00 p.m. Mass of Christian burial will be held at Saint Thomas Aquinas Church at 10: 00 a.m. on Friday, June 13th, reception to follow the service. Archbishop James Hayes presiding. Donations to charity of choice will be appreciated.

ALLANSON, John
Devoted husband, father, brother, uncle, friend, respected parts man, expert gardener, English gentleman, gentle man. Born May 7, 1917, in Elham, Kent, England. Died January 11 in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, of multiorgan failure, aged 90
By Anne L. WALSH and George ALLANSON, Page L8
Raised in the Garden of England, John credited his early life for his abiding interest in plants.
He tended one garden or another from the age of 7 and was tilling fields at 10. Family lore has it that he climbed a church wall to filch a young laburnum seedling to take home. His Mum planted it in the front yard, where it flourished until last year.
The eldest of seven siblings, John worked for the village butcher at 14, then later at the post office. At 18 he joined the Royal Air Force, and by 1937 was posted in the Middle East.
In 1941, John volunteered for the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan. This took him to Swift Current, Saskatchewan., and Fort Macleod, Alberta., where he helped set up pilot training schools. In August, 1942, he transferred to Debert, N.S.
At a squadron dance he met Ethel, his beloved wife. They married in 1943, and the next year John was posted home, with Ethel following.
On December 20, 1947, John and Ethel returned to Canada. He wholeheartedly adopted the country as his home. They raised their daughter and son here while remaining in close contact with John's family in England and Australia.
In Pictou County, Nova Scotia, John worked at service stations and gained a reputation for being knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. At home he enjoyed time with family, fixing radios, doing carpentry projects and caring for his many plants.
He brought attention to detail and inventiveness to all he did. In his garden it was common to see rows of retired Nova Scotia licence plates, two per tomato plant in a V shape, serving as shelters from late frost. He was active in the horticultural society, holding office, winning blue ribbons and sharing his expertise. In retirement he added camping and playing the organ to his enthusiasms.
John's patience and optimism were taxed by declining mobility and confusion in his last few years. Occasionally despondent over "being a bother," he grew quieter but rarely did his thoughtfulness or diplomacy leave him.
If he was disappointed at not having grandchildren he didn't complain; he welcomed those of a dear friend as his own. On his last day, despite laboured breathing and failing strength, John reached out an index finger for 16-month-old Mason to hold while Cassia, 5, looked on.
After, he inquired if we were leaving, though it was early.
"You'd like us to go Dad?"
"I think so." We tucked the covers around his shoulders. "I'll bid you good night then," he said.
We bid you good night, dear Dad.
Anne L. WALSH is John's daughter and George ALLANSON is his son.
