CHRAPKO o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2008-02-28 published
CHRAPKO, Victor
Brosseau, Alberta 1942-2008
Words cannot describe the agony with which we announce that our husband, father and mentor was killed on February 20, 2008, when a driver collided into the fuel tanks of Victor CHRAPKO's semi-trailer truck. Victor will forever be adored and greatly missed by his wife Elizabeth, son and daughter-in-law Evan and Irene; daughter Tonia; son and daughter-in-law Shane and Susanne; daughter Xina and grandchildren Elissa, Chad and Annika. He is survived by his sister Clara (Joe) and brothers Metro (Cecile), Ron (Elaine) and Ivan (Sandy) as well as nieces and nephews. Victor was pre-deceased by his parents, John Simion CHRAPKO and Eva CHRAPKO. Victor was an ethical farmer, visionary farm activist and world-class Change Agent. He was passionately committed to improving the world every single day, no matter what the beneficiary(ies)' race, creed or color. Victor was a model citizen during his lifetime of honest, hard work. His precious farm, in the family starting with Victor's father, just celebrated its 80th year of success through innovation and continual improvement. Even if you only met the man once, you know that Victor was unapologetically straight-shooting. Victor CHRAPKO was never intimidated by anyone (powerful or otherwise) a rare man, he consistently spoke out and took meaningful action against injustices (big and small). All of this came to Victor naturally by virtue of his uncompromising common sense and deeply-held morals. Victor CHRAPKO was a selfless community leader on the local, provincial and international stages. A vast array of civic organizations and charities in unrelated spheres all benefited from Victor's contributions, the following being only a partial list: - President of the Alberta Organic Producers' Association - Reeve of the County of Two Hills - Board of Directors member of The Alberta Pork Producers' Development Corporation - St. Paul Elks Lodge #45 - Trustee on the Board of The Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital Foundation - Board of Directors member of Fletchers' Corp. - Fund-raiser for S.T.A.R.S. Air Ambulance On a personal, non-organization basis, Victor 'fought the good fight' on numerous issues when others lacked the courage, strength or foresight. His successful battles included: helping build the region's first telephone service and the local rural electrification project, fighting off the building of a hazardous industrial waste facility, helping people in developing countries and, most recently, battling the advent of genetically engineered food. Victor was nominated to the Alberta Agriculture Hall of Fame in 2007. Also in 2007, his winery -- the first and only organic fruit winery in Alberta, and still one of the very few in Canada won the AgChoices 2007 Best Practices Renewal Award, a joint federal and provincial initiative in Canada. See www.EnSanteWinery.com. Victor traveled all over the world, always with Elizabeth, to promote sustainable agriculture practices. In 1993, the whole family won the Alberta Farm Family Award. Victor CHRAPKO inspired many people; he deeply loved all of his family as much as he cherished Life itself; and as a consequence, he lived more vibrantly than most. Very few people escaped his good-natured teasing, his endless joking and his love of politics. Most importantly, Victor CHRAPKO left the world a far better place because of his time among us. Victor CHRAPKO's legacy will live on while those left behind contemplate the sudden void created by his absence. Victor set a very high bar for everyone, especially himself. And he definitely equipped all those who sought his advice about ways of getting along with others and getting ahead in the world on an honest and ethical basis. We pledge to honor him by continuing to conduct our lives in the same principled manner. Thank you Dad. A Celebration of Life and Memorial Service will be held at the Two Hills Centennial Hall, Two Hills, Alberta on Saturday, March 1, 2008 at 2: 00 p.m. It will include a meal featuring Victor and Elizabeth's organic fruit wine. Everyone is most welcome to stay and enjoy the meal, after which Victor will go home to spend one last night at his farm. The next day at 12: 30, Sunday March 2, we will bury our husband, Tato, Dido, brother and friend at the Two Hills Community Cemetery in a hand-dug grave. He will be in a coffin hand-made by the Hutterites at Plain Lake colony using lumber made from spruce trees that lined the farmyard driveway leading to the CHRAPKO farm house. In lieu of flowers, donations to the 'Organic Agriculture Protection Fund' will be accepted to support the fight against genetically engineered foods. This request is made in acknowledgment of Victor's countless volunteer hours and tireless work as the President of the Alberta Organic Producers' Association. Please make cheques payable to the 'Organic Agriculture Protection Fund' and mail to: Organic Agriculture Protection Fund, c/o Yewchin's Funeral Chapel Ltd., Box 425, St. Paul, Alberta, Canada T0A 3A0 Yewchin's Funeral Chapel Ltd.

FOX--In loving memory of Joseph Irving Fox Junior "Sonny Boy." Waasaanese
Nbiish. October 1, 1969 - February 19, 2007
He fought so hard to stay with us
He knew we'd miss him so
But God knew he was hurting
And said, "It's time to go."
He suffered long without complaint
Oh yes, he paid his dues
He never once said "pity me"
Just smiled and saw it through.
His pain has stopped, the hurting done,
How we miss his dear sweet face.
God took his hand and led him home
He's in a better place.
One year ago he left us
With fond memories ever more
We all know he will be waiting
On the other shore.
CANCER IS SO LIMITED
It cannot cripple LOVE
It cannot shatter HOPE
It cannot corrode FAITH
It cannot eat away PEACE
It cannot destroy CONFIDENCE
It cannot kill FRIENDSHIP
It cannot shut out MEMORIES
It cannot silence COURAGE
It cannot invade the SOUL
It cannot reduce ETERNAL LIFE
It cannot quench the SPIRIT
It cannot lessen THE POWER OFTHE RESURRECTION OF
JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD.
Lovingly remembered by Mom and Dad and Family.

Milt DUNNELL, 102: Journalist
By James CHRISTIE, Page S8
The thing that always left Milt DUNNELL's co-workers and competitors shaking their heads was history. Most of them had to look up information on sport's landmark events and personalities. When Milt talked history, it was usually firsthand, eyewitness stuff.
Joe DiMaggio wasn't in a newsreel, he was in Mr. DUNNELL's notebook. So was Don Larsen's perfect game pitched for the New York Yankees in the 1956 World Series; Northern Dancer's Kentucky Derby win in 1964; and Muhammad Ali's Thrilla in Manila in 1975.
The long-time sports editor of the Toronto Star lived 102 years and spent 52 of them writing columns for Canada's largest distribution daily - all the way back to when the Toronto Maple Leafs were winning Stanley Cups for founder Conn Smythe.
It only figured he would chronicle history. He lived through the world's most turbulent times. The day he was born in December, 1905, the newspapers carried a story of slaughter in Moscow during the Russian Revolution, with horse-mounted dragoons riding over students and slashing them down after they'd raised a white flag. The sports page was considerably more sedate, mainly horse racing and some bizarrely disjointed notes on New Zealand footballers, the Hamilton Tigers' rugby football budget, the hiring of two new umpires and the fact that "Mrs. Fitzsimmons has deserted her pugilistic husband."
The world changed during the DUNNELL years and Mr. DUNNELL, with admirable and simple elegance, chronicled the changes in the sports corner. A young reporter, coming into the business 35 years ago at The Globe and Mail, said he was aiming to be like the paper's columnist, the witty, flashy clotheshorse Dick Beddoes. A veteran pulled him aside and counselled him: "If you read Beddoes every day, you might be entertained, but if you read Milt you'll learn something every day."
The first thing one learned from the DUNNELL style was that his influence and his big talent weren't accompanied by a big ego. He would call out athletes for substandard and indifferent performances, but Mr. DUNNELL didn't need to be the star of the show. His columns were never about himself and he eschewed using the pronoun "I."
He didn't brand himself with the fright-house wardrobe of Mr. Beddoes or the ever-present stogie of sports columnist Jim Coleman. In fact, Mr. DUNNELL never smoked or swore or drank in a business where those three vices are endemic. Those who worked for him describe him as the boss they always wanted.
"The respect was mutual. We had respect for him and he respected that we knew how to do our jobs," says The Globe's Larry MILLSON, who worked for Mr. DUNNELL in the 1970s. "With every boss since him, it's like going over a precipice, in comparison."
Mr. DUNNELL was good to colleagues despite the competitive newspaper environment. Mr. MILLSON recalled that when he crossed over from the Star to The Globe, he was dispatched to the 1976 Kentucky Derby. When he arrived he learned that The Globe's sports editor Jim VIPOND had reserved his hotel room but hadn't arranged his credentials. "I showed up at the track and had no pass, and Milt saw me there and took me to the man in charge of the press box and vouched for me. He could have just left the competition in its own mess."
It was the second kindness he'd done a Globe writer that year. At the 1976 Super Bowl in Miami, Christie Blatchford had brought a wardrobe of T-shirts and skimpy shoes, anticipating warm weather. Instead, a severe cold snap hit. Mr. DUNNELL took off his suit jacket and put it around the shivering shoulders of the opposition.
Milt DUNNELL worked until he was almost 89, finally retiring in 1994, though he'd reached retirement age 24 years earlier. He was a member of four different sports Halls of Fame and possessed an encyclopedic knowledge of just about every game - and that included blackjack. Though slowed by arthritis, he spent part of his retirement at the blackjack tables at Casino Rama, befuddling dealers even as a sharp-minded centenarian.
Milton William Ryan DUNNELL was born in Saint Marys, Ontario, on December 24, 1905. He died in Toronto on January 3, 2008. He was 102. He was predeceased by his wife Dorothy PIGEON, who died in 1994. He is survived by his sons Milton Jr., of Toronto and Michael of Windsor, Ontario He also leaves three grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

Jack PELECH: 74
He Led The Canada Games For 30 Years
By James CHRISTIE, Page S10
Toronto -- Jack PELECH's ambition was to make every Canadian raise a sweat and raise a flag.
The 74-year-old lawyer from Hamilton saw sport as the best platform for health and unity in Canada. Best known as the chairman of the Canada Games for 30 years, he also helped launch the ParticipAction fitness campaign and sought to make his Ontario hometown an international player in sports. He helped bring the Road World Cycling Championships and World Judo Championships to his city and promoted bids for the Pan American and Commonwealth Games. In 2007, he received the Order of Canada.
The Canada Games is a domestic Olympic-style event that was the first high-level experience for the likes of boxer Lennox Lewis, sprinter Bruny Surin, judoka Nicolas Gill and skater Brian Orser. On Mr. PELECH's watch as chairman, his council graduated from being a volunteer ad hoc organization that disappeared between events to a professional, incorporated entity. "The element of continuity was weak between Games," he said on their 25th anniversary in 1992. "Being incorporated and having staff gives the Canada Games the ability to deal with sponsors, maintain relationships and seek out new support when government contributions remain fixed."
Mr. PELECH attended Cathedral Boys' High School and McMaster University. He graduated from Osgoode Hall in 1959 and practised law with the Hamilton firm of PELECH, Otto and Powell.
John PELECH was born in Hamilton in 1934. He died of colon cancer Friday. He is survived by wife Joan, daughters Julia, Marnie and Donna, and sister Dorothy MULLIN.

Hard-hitting winger was first to add Rocket to Richard
By James CHRISTIE, Page S8
With one perceptive comment, Ray GETLIFFE coined one of the most recognizable handles in the cultures of Quebec and Canada.
A left-winger for the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens during the 1930s and 1940s who combined scoring ability with tough physical play, Mr. GETLIFFE was at practice one day in 1942 when a breeze was stirred in the Montreal Forum by a youngster streaking down the ice, his eyes burning like anthracite coals under a shock of black hair.
"I was sitting on the bench with Murph Chamberlain and Phil Watson," Mr. GETLIFFE recounted to the Hockey Hall of Fame's Stanley Cup Journal. "Elmer Lach was on the ice with Maurice Richard and fed him a lovely pass.
"Richard got the puck and took off. I leaned over to Murph and said, 'Wow, Richard took off like a rocket!' "
A Montreal Gazette sports writer named Dink Carroll was nearby and overheard the description. Within days, the identity Maurice (Rocket) Richard was set in stone. The Rocket became an icon in the game, in popular culture and in Quebec nationalism.
Mr. GETLIFFE became a thumping journeyman. Physically imposing in his day at 5-foot-11 and 190 pounds, the hard-hitting winger crunched National Hockey League opponents into the boards on the way to winning two Stanley Cup championships. Mr. GETLIFFE played a total of 10 seasons with the Bruins and Canadiens.
While the Rocket's scoring feats are a famous chapter in National Hockey League history, Mr. GETLIFFE's sniping abilities were respectable in their own right whenever he got the chance to play with Mr. Lach, his favourite linemate.
On February 6, 1943, Mr. GETLIFFE brought the Montreal Forum fans out of their seats with delight when he scored five goals against the arch-enemy Boston Bruins.
Montreal forward Hector (Toe) Blake had fallen ill and wasn't at his usual post on the line with Mr. Lach and Mr. Richard. Mr. GETLIFFE, usually on the second or third unit, got moved up to the top scoring line by coach Dick Irvin Sr. He benefited from Mr. Lach's nimble playmaking while the Boston defence was paying close attention to Mr. Richard. He ended the night with six points. That season was his most prolific in the National Hockey League, with 28 goals and 53 points in just 44 games.
"He felt he could score 40 goals with a broom if he was playing with Elmer Lach," his son, John GETLIFFE, told The Canadian Press.
The next night, the teams renewed hostilities at the Boston Garden, where fans had long memories and a grudge against a former Bruin who was now wearing Montreal's colours.
"While they were waiting for the anthem, everybody had quieted down and some leather lung in the top row yelled, 'GETLIFFE, you can score five more tonight and you'll still be a bum,' " Mr. GETLIFFE recalled.
A native of Galt, Ontario, he played from the 1935-36 season until 1944-45, retiring at 31 after refusing a trade to the Detroit Red Wings.
He had 136 goals and 250 points in 393 games and won a Stanley Cup with the Bruins in 1939 and again as a Canadien in 1944.
After retiring from the National Hockey League, Mr. GETLIFFE refereed hockey and lacrosse and enjoyed a long, successful business career. He also found time to hone his considerable golf skills on the courses of Southwestern Ontario, even playing in the Canadian Open as an amateur. He played the game into his 93rd year, even as his eyesight faded.
In the National Hockey League lockout year of 2005, London, the city that he called home, decided to celebrate its connection to the Stanley Cup through Mr. GETLIFFE. The city perched the illustrious senior on an antique fire truck along with the huge silver cup for a ride of honour through town.
At 94, Mr. GETLIFFE was the second-oldest living alumnus of the National Hockey League, about four months the junior of ex-New York Ranger and Chicago Blackhawk Clint Smith.
Ray GETLIFFE was born April 3, 1914, in Galt (now Cambridge,) Ontario. He died June 15, 2008, in London, Ontario He was 94. He is survived by Lorna, his wife of 74 years, son John GETLIFFE and daughter Lorna Rae YURCHUK. He also leaves seven grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.
