HENRY, Michael Blair
(August 29, 1930-July 17, 2008)
Michael Blair HENRY passed away suddenly at home in Guelph, the morning of Thursday July 17, 2008. In his 78th year, Michael leaves Joy (WILLIS) his adoring, precious soul mate and wife of 52 years. He was a very loving and devoted father of Christopher, Peter and Blair (wife Judith). As a proud grandfather he encouraged Robin and Willis to be the best. Michael will be fondly remembered for his unwavering support of Friends and family. Predeceased by his brother Paul, Michael leaves family in Toronto and area, Markdale, Chilliwack British Columbia, and Saint_John's, Newfoundland.
Born in Toronto to parents Isabel and Ted HENRY, Michael and Paul attended private schools throughout Canada, as sons of an Air Force officer. Settling in Toronto, Michael met, pursued and married Joy WILLIS on March 10, 1956. Michael began a career in financial services as a trader on the floor of the Toronto Stock Exchange. Transferred to Guelph in 1963 to build an investment business, Mike and Joy and the three boys moved into the house they built, and still call home today. His activities included coaching championship novice hockey teams, summers in Muskoka and ski trips with the family, while being a role model for many.
In 1976 Michael left the investment business and accepted the position of General Manager of the Guelph Chamber of Commerce in order to promote the growth of industry and economic well-being of the community, to which he had become so devoted. In 21 years of meritorious service Michael received commendations from the City of Guelph, Ontario, and Canadian Chambers of Commerce and in 1992, he was conferred a Governor General's Medal for the 125th Anniversary of the Confederation of Canada in recognition for significant contribution to "compatriots, community and to Canada."
As a long time member of Kiwanis and a dedicated Rotarian, Michael directed his energies to the enrichment of his community, Friends and family. He was a regular volunteer with the Guelph General Hospital and Meals on Wheels, where he was often late because he took the time to visit with the people-in-need, who became Friends.
Michael and his comic wit will be missed by his many close Friends, who have all been a wonderful support network for Joy and himself.
On behalf of the family, thank you all for your kindness and your heartfelt support.

WILLMS, Heiko Alexander Earnshaw
Son, brother, nephew, grand_son, dragon-slayer, preschooler, beloved little friend. Born April 26, 2003, in Toronto. Died January 3 in Toronto of acute myeloid leukemia, aged 4.
By Don WILLMS, Page L8
We almost lost Heiko last May. Over the course of one weekend he went from being an ordinary four-year-old to a leukemia patient on life support.
Again in July we were told he might only have hours to live, ravaged by a brain infection brought on by chemotherapy. All we wanted was to see him conscious and aware of us.
Our prayers were answered; we were lavished with almost four more good months. Heiko regained most of his strength and spirit. We went for fall walks and bike rides, played at the wooden castle in High Park, and when snow came went tobogganing and skating. He learned to switch from his left hand to his right because of brain damage, and soon resumed his magical drawings and kindergarten letters.
He was a real boy, with a boyish love of pirates, spaceships, knights in shining armour and dragons. Yet he had a gentleness more characteristic of a younger child. For Halloween, Friends donated Batman and Spider-Man costumes, but he insisted on being a bunny. "I don't want to be scary," he said.
Heiko loved details. When I read him stories written for older children and paraphrased the more complicated parts, he gently corrected me and filled in the missing words from memory.
He loved fairness. When someone won a bingo game, he would not allow us to stop playing until everyone had won and all the spaces were filled in.
When his strength returned, so did his pranks. Putting on his pyjamas always meant chases around the house confronting imaginary barriers for which we had to learn secret passwords. He loved hide-and-seek. Sometimes my car keys would turn up in his pockets. Or he might pull off my slippers and I would find them days later in a random drawer.
The only time sadness welled up for him was when he saw old Friends. It pained him to see them run and play so effortlessly while he had to relearn how to hold a crayon, climb stairs and walk.
If Heiko struggled with his illness he never talked about it. Instead, we sometimes got the feeling he was more concerned about us; he would cover up his sores, tell jokes if we looked at him with concern, and as a last resort try to tickle us out of our seriousness.
There may have been moments of prescience. Once he told us, "You will have to get another Heiko." He knew we would miss him grievously and felt sad for us.
We will never have another Heiko. So soon after celebrating Christmas, a time of hope and new birth, we and his older brother Langton turned to grieving the death of our child, our star of wonder.
Don WILLMS is Heiko's father.
