BORDA, Doctor Ivan T. (1922-2008)
One of the outstanding members of the London medical community, the former head of the gastroenterology department at St Joseph's Hospital, Doctor Ivan BORDA, passed away at the age of 85, on April 19th 2008 at the Cambridge Memorial Hospital, following a heart attack. He is deeply mourned by his wife Joyce, stepchildren Jeffrey HAFELFINGER and Caroline and Peter KRESTA, grandchildren Gregory and Alice and a large number of Friends and colleagues. He had an adventurous life, graduating from medicine in 1951 in Budapest, his birthplace, then serving as a physician in the Hungarian Army, seeing the inside of a communist prison on trumped up charges, emigrating to Canada after the 1956 revolution, finishing his training in internal medicine, gastroenterology and pharmacology in London and Boston.. He was a superb physician and an early expert in epidemiological pharmacology, pioneering the research in adverse event monitoring and clinical trials methodology. He had a triple career: in addition to being appointed as a consultant gastroenterologist at Saint_Joseph's Hospital in 1963, he worked for the World Health Organization in Geneva and as consultant in the pharmaceutical industry in Switzerland. In 1981 he returned to Europe (Switzerland) and divided his time between Basel, consulting for the pharmaceutical industry, and Geneva, where he did much extremely rewarding work for World Health Organization primarily in third world countries. He was fiercely patriotic towards Canada, and always grateful to have been given a home here when he was stateless, returning therefore to Canada in 1990, first to Ottawa and then Cambridge still doing occasional work for World Health Organization until 1995. He was an inveterate globetrotter, knowing a great deal about people and places and a cultured man, a lover of opera, theater, fine dining, tennis and soccer. He had the bearing, style and courtly manner of a Hungarian aristocrat, yet he was a generous and warm friend, a raconteur and witty conversationalist who easily earned the love and respect of all who knew him. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his name to the Saint_Joseph's Hospital Foundation.

In loving memory of a wonderful and devoted wife, mother and grandmother, who lost her battle with cancer on April 13, 2005. Our hearts were heavy as we watched you fade away. But since we saw you sleeping, so peacefully and free of pain, it has been some consolation knowing that you will not go through such suffering again.
Our hearts still ache with sadness, The secret tears still flow.
What it meant to lose you,
No one will ever know.
We miss you more and more each day, as time passes by.
Tears we shed we can wipe away, But the ache in our hearts will always stay.
We love and miss you so deeply, your husband, Nick, your children, Sylvana and Robert, Joe and Jennifer, your grandchildren, Aedan and Craig, and your loving "adopted mom," Georgie BOLTON.

ARNOLD, Jack (November 15, 1921-February 24, 2008)
It is in the spirit of my love for him that I recognize the passing of my beloved father, Jack ARNOLD on February 24, 2008 at Victoria Hospital, London, Ontario at the age of 86 years. Jack was predeceased by his parents, George and Kit ARNOLD; his brothers George and Bob ARNOLD; his sister Joan VENTIN; his son Robert Ian ARNOLD his step-grand_son, Bart and his wives Florence (née KENNEDY) and Kathleen (née McDOUGAL.) He leaves behind his loving wife Myra of London; his devoted sister Mary MOORE of Dorchester. Additionally, he is survived by his daughters Argena (Bonnie) BERNE of Stelle, Illinois; Lynn JOHNSON of Dawson Creek, British Columbia; Kathleen HAMILL of Ft. Fraser, British Columbia and his step-daughter Beth BORIS as well as 10 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren. Clearly, Jack emerged as a self-made man who lived an extraordinary life. Valued for the insights and optimism he shared with others, he was distinguished by his particular focus on self-discipline, love, freedom and trust. Characterized by his use of reason and creative innovation throughout his many careers, he was held in respect by many, especially in business matters. Jack served in his youth as a member of the Royal Scottish Regiment in World War 2 (1940-1945). During the past 6 years, he lived in Parkwood Hospital, London, until his death on Sunday last. A memorial service will be held at 1: 30 pm., Thursday, March 6, 2008 at the Church of the Good Shepherd at Parkwood Hospital to acknowledge the deep sadness and heartfelt loss of his presence in our lives.

BORISS, Nikolajs
Farmer, refugee, gardener, singer, husband, father, uncle, vecpapa. Born April 1, 1913, in Rezekne, Latvia. Died September 7, 2007, in Barrie, Ontario, of a stroke, aged 94.
By Karen BORISS and Donna DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS, Page L6
'Grow where you're planted." Fresh potatoes, warm from the earth, ripe tomatoes from his own vines, salads from his garden - life's riches were simply grand for our vecpapa, Nikolajs (Nick) BORISS, who was forced to turn his back on his country and begin again.
Nick grew up on a prosperous farm in Rezekne, Latvia. The only one in his family of nine children to attend university, Nick studied at the Agricultural College in Jelgava, Latvia. While there, he met the love of his life, Emma DZENIS. They were married in March, 1940. By July, the first Soviet occupation of Latvia had begun.
Nick and Emma knew that they should leave the country in order to survive, but finishing their education was just as important. They continued to study and attempted to find joy in wartime life wherever they could.
In 1943, they decided to flee their beloved country in advance of the invading Russian army. Nick asked his parents to leave as well and to meet them on the shore that night - they didn't. He never saw them again.
With a newborn baby and only the clothes on their backs, Nick and Emma and Nick's sister Zenija travelled across the Baltic Sea in the middle of the night on an overloaded fishing boat with hundreds of others. After several days, they finally landed in Sweden and welcomed a new life, and another son, shortly afterward.
In 1949, still afraid of the proximity of Soviet influence, they decided to move to Canada. Nick, Emma and their sons Uldis (Richard) and Ivar eventually settled on a farm just west of Orangeville, Ontario Daily demands of a dairy herd, mixed grains and chickens meant life was busy and full.
Above all, Nick and Emma gardened. They grew hundreds of flower beds. Retirement at 65 was well deserved and they gardened to their heart's content.
A miraculous day in 1997 brought the news that one of Nick's brothers had survived Soviet internment, and although he had passed away since, he had two sons who lived in Chicago. A reunion with his nephews Bruno and Aleks blessed Nick's family with many cherished visits full of singing, drinking and Latvian storytelling. Sadly, Emma died suddenly in 1998.
Nick's children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren brought out his humour and ability to relate, with a laugh, a wink or his famous ear wiggles.
Karen BORISS is Nick's eldest granddaughter and Donna DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS is his daughter-in-law.
