In memory of a dear son and brother, Brian WARREN, who passed away July 20, 2007. They say time heals everything, But we know that isn't so, Because it hurts as much today as it did a year ago. We've had to hide our heartaches when someone says your name, But missing you is a heartache that never goes away. The special times will not return when we were all together, But the memories we share will last forever. We love and miss you Brian. Mom, Dad, David, Kris and Andre.

WARREN, Jack H. " Jake," O.C., LLD
After a short stay at Ottawa General, Jake has passed away in the full embrace of his loved and loving family. Born in April, 1921 on an Ontario tobacco farm, he was raised and educated in Ottawa and completed his studies at Queen's University, Kingston, B.A., LLD. In World War 2 he welcomed responsibility as a naval officer on many ships, notably HMCS Valleyfield which was torpedoed and sunk in the frigid North Atlantic in 1944. His survival only ensured and reinforced his commitment to deliver a genuine public service to a country that he loved. An interest in trade and internationalism brought him post-war to the Department of External Affairs and in due course to appointments as High Commissioner to the United Kingdom (1971-1975) and Ambassador to the United States of America (1975-1977). His focused dedication and overwhelming work ethic were rewarded with varied positions of significance throughout his life, including Deputy Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce (1968-1971). In 1977 he returned to Canada to act as Ambassador and Canadian Coordinator of the Tokyo Round of World Trade Negotiations (1977-1979). Upon his well-deserved retirement from the federal public service, but still hungry for intellectual challenge, he accepted the Vice-Chairmanship at Bank of Montreal and then represented the Province of Quebec as its Free Trade Policy Advisor during North American Free Trade Agreement negotiations. He received the Public Service Outstanding Achievement Award in 1975 and was appointed an Officer of the Order of Canada in 1982. The many achievements in his professional life only pale against the happiness and love that he shared with dear Joan, his wife of 55 years, his four children, Hilary, Martin, Jennifer, Ian and his grandchildren, Andrew, Colin, Alec, Beverly, Thomas, Madeline, Emily, Jack, Robert and the late Fiona, who will miss his great wit, dining-room table exuberance and unsuccessful efforts at discipline. He has been a great friend of many and his absence at Round Table, CHIMO, Stammtisch, White Pine and on the salmon rivers will be conspicuous. Funeral service will take place at St. Bartholomew's Anglican Church, 125 MacKay Street Ottawa on Monday, April 7, 2008 at 2 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to the National Arts Centre Orchestra Bursary would be appreciated.

Ambassador a hard-nosed negotiator who paved the way to free trade
A survivor of a torpedoed Royal Canadian Navy frigate during the Second World War, he learned how to exploit differences among trading regions and proved that Canada was capable of digging in its heels
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S12
Jake WARREN was part of that generation of tough Canadians who saw action during the Second World War and went on to become architects of this country's post-war political and economic policies. Alongside such senior mandarins (and old Friends) as Simon Reisman, Gordon Robertson, Ed Ritchie and Saul Rae, Mr. WARREN represented a golden era when Canada came of age and made its mark internationally.
A highly respected diplomat and public servant for 34 years, Mr. WARREN was Canada's high commissioner to Britain and ambassador to the United States. Before and after those appointments, he was this country's top trade negotiator, a hard-nosed horse trader who co-ordinated tariff and trade deals on a global scale, paving the way for the 1988 Canada-U.S. Free Trade Agreement.
"In my family, we knew him as Uncle Jake," recalled Liberal member of Parliament and former Ontario premier Bob Rae, whose father, Saul, served with Mr. WARREN in post-war London. "He was somebody I always turned to for candid and direct advice. He was never shy about sharing his views."
Mr. WARREN had "a burning love" for Canada, eulogized his friend Thomas D'AQUINO, a former civil servant and now head of the Canadian Council of Chief Executives. He "took a strong interest in virtually every issue that came to define Canada as we passed into the new century: Our trading relationships with the world; our fiscal health; our constitutional debates; relations between English and French speaking people; our partnership with the United States the integrity and accountability of our political leaders."
Like many of his era, Mr. WARREN was fuelled by an intellectual hunger and zest for life that followed the trauma of having his warship blown out from under him. He joined the Royal Canadian Navy in 1941 and by 1944, was a lieutenant and navigation officer aboard the HMCS Valleyfield, a river-class frigate that had been commissioned only the year before.
Just before midnight on May 6, 1944, on the return leg of an escort mission, the Valleyfield was one of three frigates and two corvettes steaming 50 nautical miles south of Cape Race, Newfoundland. With the Valleyfield occupying the distant, astern position in the convoy, the ships were making good time to Saint_John's, when suddenly, a warning was sounded. Just as action stations were called, the German submarine U-548 fired a torpedo that ripped into the Valleyfield's port side. There was a tremendous explosion and the ship broke in two.
"She went down in 90 seconds," recalled Stanley TAPSON of Sidney, British Columbia, who was a stoker aboard the ship. "Jake was off duty that night but he was in the bridge cabin anyway."
The water temperature was barely above freezing. Of a crew of 168, 130 men perished. Because it happened late at night, most were asleep or off watch in the mess. The ship was cut neatly in half and they died trapped below decks, Mr. TAPSON said.
Asked how he survived clad in nothing but a lifejacket and underwear, Mr. TAPSON said, "I was 19." Mr. WARREN, he recalled, wore a thermal suit.
Of the crew who hit the water, only 38 survived. But for them the nightmare was just beginning. It was some time before the other ships in the convoy realized that the Valleyfield was missing. Finally, HMCS Giffard, a flower-class corvette, went about and steamed back to the survivors but could not stop. Under wartime regulations, the Giffard had orders to first try to hunt down the submarine.
Hours later, with all trace of the U-boat gone, the Giffard returned to the scene. But by then some of the men had perished in the water, either from hypothermia or from ingesting fuel oil that had sluiced from the hull. The survivors were finally taken on board and, once safely in port, they waited their turn to ride an ambulance to hospital.
"Jake comes up to me and puts his hand on my shoulder and says, 'You're next, Stan,' recalled Mr. TAPSON, his voice choking. "That's was typical. He was no put-on. He was a man's man and we all loved and respected him."
He was born on Happy Valley Farm, which grew tobacco in Howard Township outside London, Ontario, the only child of Thomas and Olive WARREN. At war's end, he returned to Queen's University to complete a bachelor's degree in politics and economics that he had started earlier.
Mr. WARREN and many his age were snapped up by a war-weary External Affairs Department, which was eager for fresh talent. For a dozen years, he held junior postings at Canadian embassies in London, Washington and Paris, and showed such a flair for trade issues that in 1958 he was appointed assistant deputy minister in the department of trade and commerce.
Two years later, he was named vice-chairman of the Canadian delegation at the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade in Geneva, a posting that lasted four years. Then it was back to the renamed industry, trade and commerce ministry in Ottawa, this time as deputy minister.
At the age of 50, Mr. WARREN was named high commissioner. "He was one the youngest high commissioners ever sent," said his daughter, Hilary NICOLSON. "He relished it and did a phenomenal job of promoting Canada as a young and youthful country, full of prospects."
The three-year posting was replaced by another high-level appointment as Canada's ambassador to the United States, overlapping with the presidencies of Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter. It was under Mr. Ford's administration that Canada was invited to join the G-6 Group of Nations, making it the G-7. Mr. WARREN was said to have played a large role in that decision, and he also laid plans for the later move of Canada's embassy to Pennsylvania Avenue, just down the street from the White House.
When Mr. Ford died in 2006, Mr. WARREN recalled that the president "understood us, and there didn't seem to be huge, terrible tensions or problems. We didn't have a lumber dispute, and we didn't have water diversion."
Another accomplishment of note on his watch was an agreement reached between the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the National Research Council of Canada for the development and building of a "Space Shuttle Attached Remote Manipulator System," or the Canadarm.
In 1977, rumours surfaced that Mr. WARREN was being pushed out of his job because of conflict with Ivan Head, a top adviser to then-prime minister Pierre Trudeau, over preparations for Mr. Trudeau's trip to Washington that February. Mr. WARREN was also rumoured to be on the short list for governor-general in 1979, but the job went to Edward Schreyer.
In 1977, he returned to Canada as co-ordinator of the Tokyo Round of the Multilateral Trade Negotiations, which were aimed at revamping the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade. To the amazement of many, Mr. WARREN showed that Canada, a relatively small player by international standards, was able to exact concessions from Europe, the U.S. and Japan.
In fact, the way he put it, Canadian officials learned how to exploit differences among the three most powerful trading regions. Mr. WARREN said Canada had proved quite capable of digging in its heels on import restrictions. "Not unreasonable" was a phrase he often used to describe the concessions achieved by Canada.
While it's fair to say many Canadians would find topics such as tariff quotas and countervailing duties less than scintillating, Mr. WARREN truly loved the field. "He actually found the subject fascinating," his daughter noted. "The negotiating skills required, the subject matter. Free trade was something that he believed strongly in. Dry maybe, but for him, the subtleties were extraordinary."
He was recalled as a wonderful wit but a rather formal man who would arch his back at the dinner table to remind his children to sit up straight. However, he mellowed with age, his daughter pointed out.
On retirement in 1979, he was appointed vice-chairman of the Bank of Montreal and made responsible for its growing international network. Three years later, he was named to the Order of Canada. But another major challenge awaited. A month shy of his 65th birthday, the government of Quebec retained him as its free-trade policy adviser during the North American Free Trade Agreement negotiations.
The Globe and Mail called his appointment "intriguing" and an ambiguous move by then premier Robert Bourassa, who "often sends out double messages of this kind, using someone's reputation to suggest that he is heading in one direction, and then moving in a quite different direction.
"On the face of it, it looks as if Quebec went out to get a big-league player; someone whose experience would match that of Simon Reisman," wrote Graham Fraser in 1986.
Mr. WARREN's presence suggested to others that Mr. Bourassa favoured the idea of the trade talks' success. And while there were some who said an independent Quebec's economy would be viable, Mr. WARREN's view was: "Viable means 'not dead.' That's not what I want for Quebec."
He wanted the best for all of Canada. As he warned before the House of Commons committee on the Meech Lake Accords, "If there is a split or some arrangement that is less efficient than what we have at the moment, I think we will lose something. Both Canada and Quebec will lose."
Jack Hamilton WARREN was born in Ridgetown, Ontario, on April 10, 1921. He died April 1, 2008 of natural causes in Ottawa. He was 87. He leaves his wife of 55 years Joan (TITTERINGTON,) children Hilary, Martin, Jennifer, and Ian, and nine grandchildren.
He is also survived by his Valleyfield shipmates, Stanley TAPSON (Sidney, British Columbia); Bill EDWARDS (Vancouver); Don GODWIN (Hamilton, Ontario;) and Ian TAIT/TAITE/TATE (Port Colbourne, Ontario

KENNARD, L. June (née CLEMES)
Lorna June (CLEMES) KENNARD was born in Toronto July 19, 1928 to Lorna Edith (WARREN) (1906.01.29-1934.08.18) and Jack Carnegie CLEMES (1906.02.17-1981.10.06.) June died peacefully surrounded by many loved ones on July 14, 2008 in Kingston, Ontario of complications following gall bladder surgery.
June was pre-deceased by her husband of almost 58 years, Cedric G.H. KENNARD (1924.07.25-2008.02.18) last February. She is survived by her children Christopher A. (Kit), Deborah L., Katherine L., and Margaret (Peggy) J. KENNARD; her 'adopted' children Lucie RONDEAU, Pamela COWAN; sisters Diana J. (CLEMES) LETT and Wendy J. (CLEMES) LITTLE.
June grew up in and around Toronto and was educated at Havergal College, Branksome Hall, Hatfield Hall, McMaster University and Wellesley Nursing School.
In 1944, she was one of 26 Canadians to win the RCHA award for her bravery and heroic action, when, at just over 12 years of age in August 1940, June rescued Harry PASSMORE from drowning by diving through the weeds of Lake Skugog and pulling him out of the water.
June moved from Montreal to Bath, Ontario in 1992 where she enjoyed supporting and participating in a variety of local community causes and activities also serving on the board of the Fairfield-Gutzeit Society.
A reception is planned in Bath at the Fairfield-Gutzeit House for Tuesday, July 22 from 6 to 9 p.m. A memorial service in the Montreal area will be held later on October 25 for both June and Cedric, their 58th wedding anniversary. Cedric's memorial service was postponed due to June's illness.
