BONAME, Patricia Ann (née CLEGG)
(June 25, 1933-June 2, 2008)
It is with great sadness that the Boname family announces the passing of Patricia Ann BONAME. Wife, mother, friend, civic volunteer and public servant, Pat BONAME is best remembered for having worked with numerous community groups including the West Vancouver Presbyterian Church, North Shore Disability Resource Centre, Girl Guides of Canada, West Van Community Arts Council, West Vancouver Band, Minerva Foundation, Federal Liberal Party, Lions Gate Hospital Board and countless other associations. She held political office as a West Vancouver elected representative for over 15 years including 3 years as Mayor from 1996-99. Her intelligence, dedication, and integrity, together with her beautifully radiant smile, were valued by all she worked with and served. Born to Charles and Agnes CLEGG in Hamilton, Ontario, the family later moved to Toronto. Passionate about music, the arts, and political affairs, Pat's professional career began with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in the early years of television broadcasting where, among other programs, she worked on one of this country's finest television news magazines, 'Close-Up'. Her love of music saw her travel to Naples, Italy where she met naval officer and fellow voice student, Phil BONAME. A Mediterranean wedding and two children later (Jessica and Mary,) the BONAMEs returned to Toronto where they expanded their family with Charles and John. A move to West Vancouver in 1971 saw Pat's fitness and volunteer activities evolve into elected office with West Van's School Board, Municipal Council and the Greater Vancouver Regional District. Following a position in government relations with the Open Learning Agency, Pat 'retired' in 2002 and dedicated all energies to her many volunteer obligations. In recent months, Pat privately fought a courageous battle with cancer. She remained at the home she loved, close to family and the sights and sounds of the ocean at her window. Admitted to Lions Gate Hospital on Friday, May 30, she peacefully slipped away with her family and the music of Bach and Brahms at her side. Cancer took her life but not her spirit and family and Friends will forever cherish many fond memories. An avid distance runner this was to be Pat's last marathon. She crossed the finish line in full flight and into the open arms of her Saviour. In addition to her loving husband of 48 years, Pat is survived by her adoring children, Jessica (Kevin DINGWELL,) Mary, Charles (Vanessa), John and grandchildren, Robert and Stuart DINGWELL, and Elise BONAME. A memorial service will be held in her honour at Christ Church Cathedral, 690 Burrard Street, Vancouver at 2: 00 p.m. on Friday, June 13th. In lieu of flowers, donations to the British Columbia Cancer Agency would be greatly appreciated.

PROBYN, Alfred Stephen (1951-2008)
A. (Alfred) Stephen PROBYN died in Toronto on Sunday, March 30, 2008, at age 56 in the spirit in which he lived: 'Onwards and upwards!' One of North America's foremost authorities on 'green energy' and the independent power industry, Stephen is best known as a financier, entrepreneur, regulatory expert and advisor to governments on energy and environmental policy. Convinced of the certainty of Climate Change and the need for action, he was inspired by an unswerving belief in the possibility of political, economic and technological solutions to most human problems -- expecting the same 'best efforts' and goodwill that he always contributed himself. A man of extraordinary intellect, drive and wide-ranging talents coupled to great warmth, wit and self-deprecating personal charm, Stephen PROBYN inspired lifelong Friendships and admiration equally in men and women, and excelled in academe, government, journalism, broadcasting, industry associations and not-for-profit organizations on both sides of the Atlantic. Born in Pembroke, Ontario to a British father, Major A. (Alfred) John PROBYN (retired,) and his Canadian bride, the late Calista Helen PROBYN (née CLARKE,) Stephen grew up on Army bases in British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, West Germany and Ontario. Summers of his youth were most often spent at the Clarke family farm near Naramata in B.C.'s Okanagan Valley. In later life, he began transforming the farm's elderly orchards into vineyards with a view to a sun-filled retirement of sailing the lake, drinking excellent wine and writing the books he planned in a place he loved. Stephen's other love affair was with London and the company of exceptional Friends there, starting in his graduation year at the London School of Economics which earned an Honours B.A. from Queen's University in 1973. The M. Phil. begun at London School of Economics was then postponed to join the Conservative Research Department in London where the 23 year-old Canadian advised the new Leader of the Opposition, Margaret Thatcher, on energy policy. As he told Lady Thatcher not long ago of their joint beginnings: 'We were changing the world.' Returning home in 1976, Stephen continued his work in energy policy at the Progressive Conservative Research Office in Ottawa and then as an advisor to the Premier of Nova Scotia (1978-84). During the Constitutional patriation debates in 1981, he had a brief but exhilarating stint lobbying the British Government and Parliament on behalf of Nova Scotia's case for the rights of the Provinces and Canada's Aboriginal peoples. In 1982-83, Stephen attended Harvard University, earning a Master's of Public Administration at the John F. Kennedy School of Government with a thesis on the ethical, environmental and regulatory challenges posed by the brand-new science of genetic engineering and the foundation of a 'biotech' industry. He then turned the thesis into a sixpart television documentary, The Life Revolution (1989), co-produced by TVOntario and England's Channel 4, which gained global distribution and the recognition of U.S. and United Kingdom awards. In Ottawa again in 1984-86, Stephen acted as Senior Policy Advisor to the Hon. Pat Carney, then Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources, for the dismantling of Canada's National Energy Program and the launch of new federal energy initiatives by the Mulroney Government. Then, he left government and moved to Toronto to begin his work in international capital markets at the former Wood Gundy Inc. In 1987, Stephen PROBYN founded the group of private companies where he was soon joined by his wife and business partner, Doctor Barbara EASTMAN, and their great friend, the late R.W. (Herb) Harmer, former head of Bechtel Canada. Stephen's strategic aim was to help make 'green' industry economically successful by specializing in project finance for energy and environmental infrastructure internationally, and investing in and operating new 'clean power' projects across Canada. Under Stephen's leadership as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer until his death, The Probyn Group™ has arranged debt and equity financing of independent power in Canada, the U.S., the United Kingdom the Caribbean and Eastern Europe and launched renewable energy companies on the Toronto Stock Exchange and the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange, with a total value of some $3.5 billion. Stephen re-entered political life for the 1998 Federal Election, to run as the Conservative Party of Canada candidate for Toronto Centre-Rosedale, relishing the race regardless of the Liberal Party victory. Given more time, his fascination with the democratic process and public policy development would no doubt have drawn him into politics again. Meanwhile, Stephen was proud to accept an appointment to federal office as Chairman of Sustainable Development Technology Canada, made jointly by the Ministers of Natural Resources and the Environment in October 2007. Among many other offices and associations, Stephen served as President of the Association of Power Producers of Ontario (formerly, Independent Power Producers Society of Ontario) from 1993-95; as a member of the Electricity Market Design Committee appointed by the Ontario Government in 1998; and as an advisor to the G8 Nations Taskforce on Renewable Energy appointed in 2000. He was the founding Chairman and a director of the Canadian Association of Income Funds from 2003-2007. Since 2000, he was also a director of United Corporations Limited. He served as President of the Couchiching Institute on Public Affairs in 1994-96 and has long been an active member of the congregation of Grace Church on-the-Hill. He was a member of the Toronto Club and the Royal Canadian Yacht Club. Stephen took great joy in having his wife Barbara and loving sons Hugh, John and Max at his side last Sunday. He is also survived by daughter Lucy and granddaughter Brangwyn in Montreal; sisters Professor Elspeth PROBYN in Sydney, Australia, and Jane PROBYN, brother-in-law Nick DINNAGE and nephew Joseph in London, United Kingdom and his father John and stepmother Jill PROBYN in Herefordshire, United Kingdom Visiting is welcome at Morley Bedford Funeral Services, 159 Eglinton Avenue West, Toronto, on Friday, April 4th between 5: 00 and 7:00 p.m. and on Saturday, April 5th between 2: 00 and 4:00 p.m. The Funeral Service will be held in Toronto at Grace Church on-theHill, 300 Lonsdale Road, on Monday, April 7th at 3: 00 p.m. Friends and colleagues are invited to a reception to follow at The Royal Canadian Yacht Club, 141 St. George Street, from 5: 00-8:00 p.m. No flowers, please.

RAFTIS, Rev. James Ambrose, C.S.B.
Died peacefully in his sleep at Saint Michael's Hospital after a brief illness. Father RAFTIS was born August 24, 1922 in Arthur, Ontario one of five sons of James Stephen RAFTIS and Blanche (DINNEEN) RAFTIS. After graduating from Arthur High School, Ambrose was accepted into St. Basil's Novitiate and made his religious profession in 1941. As a seminarian, Ambrose was directed toward the social sciences and history. Though somewhat removed from the usual Basilian institutional academic programs, this area proved to be congenial to his abilities. He finished at the top of the honour course in political science and economics at the University of Toronto and the following year earned and M.A. in economics. Ambrose RAFTIS was ordained to the priesthood June 29, 1948. From 1949-1954 rather than accepting a scholarship from Harvard University, he pursued a doctoral course in the new program initiated at Laval University that attempted to wed traditional philosophical and theological studies to the social sciences. He then acquired a doctorate in medieval history from Cambridge University. Father RAFTIS became dedicated to medieval social history and the training of a number of professors who became prominent in leading Catholic and non-Catholic Universities. A dozen books, scores of lectures and learned papers complemented this teaching. Recognition was given to his accomplishments by election as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada and a Member of the American Historical Association. Administrative obligations inevitably followed too as Father RAFTIS was elevated to the post of president of the Pontifical Institute of Medieval Studies, 1979-1988. Ambrose retired from teaching in 1990 and continued to reside at Saint Michael's College, Toronto. For health reasons he moved to the Cardinal Flahiff Centre, Anglin House, Toronto in 2006. Father RAFTIS is predeceased by his parents and brothers Leo, Francis, John and Eddie. To his sisters-in-law Adele, Jean and Olivene and his nieces, nephews and Friends the Basilian Fathers offer their condolences and prayers. Friends may call at the Cardinal Flahiff Basilian Centre Chapel, 95 Saint_Joseph Street, Toronto on Thursday, April 22 from 2: 00-5:00 p.m. with a Vigil Service at 7: 30 p.m. The Mass of Resurrection will be celebrated in the chapel on Wednesday, April 23 at 10 a.m. Interment in the Basilian plot at Holy Cross Cemetery, Thornhill, Ontario.

In tears we saw you sinking, And watched you pass away. Our hearts were almost broken, We wanted you to stay. But when we saw you sleeping, So peaceful, free from pain, How could we wish you back with us, To suffer that again. It broke our hearts to lose you, But you did not go alone, For part of us went with you, The day God took you home. Love Lloyd, Cindy, Phytos.
