DROINE, William " Bill"
Mr. William (Bill) DROINE, age 87, resident of Thunder Bay, passed away peacefully with his family by his side at Grandview Lodge January 23, 2008, after a brief illness. Bill was born October 2, 1920 in Port Arthur, attended Central School and graduated from P.A.T.S. (Hillcrest High School). He proudly served in the Royal Canadian Navy during World War 2 on the corvette HMCS Camrose. In 1946, he married the love of his life, Ollie KINASCHUK and they settled in Port Arthur to raise their family. Bill worked at Canadian Car and Foundry for 21 years and then for Vercival and Company, retiring in 1979. He was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion and the Elks. After the loss of his beloved wife Ollie in 1992, Bill lived independently in his own home until his move to Grandview Lodge in November 2007. Our Dad was happiest when he was with his family, whether it was walking in the bush looking for mushrooms, blueberry picking, fishing, Sunday picnics, or playing hockey on the backyard rink with his three children. In his later years, he kept a regular routine of exercising on his stationary bike, doing sit-ups and watching Star Trek and Bluejay and Leaf games on television. He was an avid reader and believed in the importance of a higher education. In 1993, his twin granddaughters Kim and Michelle were born. 'Grampa' was extremely proud of all their accomplishments and his face lit up whenever they visited him or he spoke of them. Our Dad loved playing crib, and when he could no longer see all those 15-2's, he played a modified version with his 'coach' son-in-law Bill where they 'beat the board' the last game they played on January 22. Dad was predeceased by his wife Ollie in 1992, his parents Feydor and Lena DRAGANIUK and older brother Steve. He will be deeply missed by his son Bob (Linda) Owen Sound, son Bill (Mary Jane FINLAYSON) Toronto, daughter Corinne (Bill) KREZONOSKI and granddaughters Kim and Michelle, Thunder Bay and numerous other nieces, nephews sisters-in law and one brother-in-law. Cremation has taken place and a private family service will be held. As an expression of sympathy, in lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, Heart and Stroke or Diabetes Association. Thank You We would like to thank the staff of Grandview Lodge (F wing) for their exceptional care and compassion during our Dad's stay.

DRAGLAND o@ca.on.middlesex_county.london.london_free_press 2008-06-13 published
Life a source of wonder
By Ian GILLESPIE, Free Press Columnist, Fri., June 13, 2008
REANEY's gift to arts will inspire generations
James REANEY once told an interviewer: "I still haven't grown up."
And maybe that was one of the great writer's gifts: An ability to look at life with the open-eyed wonderment of a child.
When I visited his London home in 1994 to talk about his adaptation of Alice Through the Looking Glass for the Stratford Festival, REANEY's conversation veered from the odd to the articulate, often in the same sentence.
At one point REANEY, who died Wednesday evening at age 81, complained that many of his university students had trouble with Lewis Carroll's text.
"They just don't understand why it's such fun to go to a place where everything is backwards," he said gleefully.
REANEY had no trouble navigating a world like that -- where time runs backwards, language loops back and forth and notions of logic need not always apply.
Despite its lyrical whimsy, REANEY's work delved deeply into notions of darkness and evil.
"Many of his ideas came from a sense of kids' play, but it was also informed by a really sharp, politically astute mind," says London-bred playwright/novelist Allan Stratton, who first worked with REANEY in the 1960s. "He was tough as nails, while at the same time being absolutely open and generous."
Poet Stan DRAGLAND, who edited a 1983 book of essays titled Approaches to James REANEY, says "there just seemed to be no lid on his imagination."
DRAGLAND recalls one incident during the early 1970s when both men were teaching at University of Western Ontario, and DRAGLAND told REANEY he'd just delivered a lesson on Jane Austen's novel, Emma.
"And (REANEY) said, 'I love the turkeys at the end of that book,' says DRAGLAND, who now lives in Saint_John's, Newfoundland. "And I thought, what turkeys? I didn't notice the turkeys."
DRAGLAND admits he never found the turkeys. But he figures they're in there, somewhere.
"But the point of the story is he would come from left field with something, and that often made you go back and think," says DRAGLAND. "He was a complete original."
In a 15-year period during the 1960s and 1970s, Keith Turnbull directed almost all of REANEY's major plays -- including the national touring production of The Donnelly Trilogy -- and says REANEY possessed "an absolutely unique and extraordinary imagination."
"He pulled his ideas from a massive and unconventional range, like Yeats and Blake and Peking opera," says Turnbull, who lives in Montreal. "He believed your limits were not geographical, they were imaginative. He said you could sit by a duck pond and have access to the whole universe."
Toronto-based director Paul THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, who guided Toronto's Theatre Passe Muraille in the 1970s, says REANEY was 15 years ahead of his time.
"The rest of us were just thinking about being Canadian playwrights, dramaturges, directors and whatever, and he was doing it," says THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON. "He was a cultural dynamo."
A dynamo tempered by a sense of playful innocence, perhaps. And who left a massive legacy.
"Jamie towers over Canadian literature, and in particular, drama," says Stratton. "He's certainly the finest playwright the country has ever produced. And the Donnelly Trilogy is certainly the finest work in our dramatic canon.
"His loss can't be measured."
He was tough as nails, while at the same time being absolutely open and generous.

MacIVER, Alexander John " Jack"
It is with great sadness that the family announce the passing of Alexander John (Jack) MacIVER in Winnipeg, on Sunday May 11th, 2008, at the age of 83 years. Jack is survived by his loving wife of 63 years, Mary; his seven children; Alexander John (Sandy) of Vancouver, Ian of Toronto, Laura-Leigh BROOK (Jim) of Breckenridge, Colorado, Douglas (Evelyn) of Winnipeg, Tracy VANDERENDE (Herb) of Vancouver, Kim TURNLEY (Dave) of Winnipeg, Jackie DRAGOJEVIC (Mike) of Toronto. Also mourning his loss are his 16 grandchildren, Meghan, Drewe, John-James, Tyler, Ryan, Shelley, Douglas, Andrew, Alexandria, Ryan, Susan, Zachery, Danielle, Shauna, Jonmikal and Seth. The annual fishing trips to northern Manitoba including Knee Lake and Bolton Lake will long live in their memories. Jack was predeceased by his sister Margaret and his brother A.B.C. (Bruce). Also left to remember him are Jack's sisters, Francis BALLINGALL of Tawassen, British Columbia and Diane MacDONALD of Winnipeg. He is remembered with fondness by Terri, Bryan, Melissa, Nicole and Michael of Los Angeles; his sisters-in-law Anne LOREQUE of New Mexico, Edna STORSATER (Ralph) of Montreal and Phyllis MacIVER of Winnipeg, along with his many nieces and nephews. Jack was born in Winnipeg on November 9th 1924 where he resided all of his life. Educated at Linwood School in St James, he joined the R.C.N.V.R. in the spring of 1943. While on active duty following the 'D' day operations his ship, the HMCS Trentonian was sunk in February 1945. Upon his return from the war he married his long time sweetheart Mary BUTCHART on November 10, 1945. Over the years, Jack remained in contact with his few surviving shipmates. He recently visited his friend and shipmate Vince HADLEY (Ivey) at their home in White Rock, British Columbia. Jack was responsible for publishing the history of the HMCS Trentonian. Jack found his calling in the automotive industry. A self made businessman Jack became owner and dealer principal of Midway Chrysler Plymouth in August 1969. Jack was recognized as the Time Life Dealer of the year in 1985. He was best known for the slogan 'where you're the boss' and the Midway jingle that followed. Jack loved Winnipeg and Winnipeggers. He was generous in giving back to his community. Often he was the anonymous benefactor for those in need especially when children and summer camps were involved. Over the years Jack remained involved in many organizations; and continued his association as past president of the Winnipeg Lions Club, the St. Andrews Society of Winnipeg, and the Manitoba Motor Dealers Association. For many years Jack served on Chrysler Canada's dealer advisory council. He was also actively involved in many civic and charitable organizations; through the Shriners [and Jesters] Ducks Unlimited, the Fort Whyte Society and as one of the few 60 year pin holders with the Masonic Temple. He also enjoyed his long time membership with cohorts in the Passwa Club and with the Winnipeg 'mafia' brain stormers. Jack was a Board member of MPIC and the Associates of the Asper School of Business. He was a lifetime member of the Progressive Conservative Party of Manitoba. Jack was a very active member of Knox United Church. He spent many years as chairman of the board of the Duval Foundation. He volunteered his energy and efforts to many diverse projects throughout the City and particularly with and through HMS Chippewa. He was gratified to learn that his last volunteer effort would also be a success when the City announced that permission had been granted for a parade honouring cadets from all levels of the armed forces [air, sea and land] to be celebrated for the first time in June 2008. Jack enjoyed many activities having been a long time member of the Winnipeg Winter Club, the Carlton Club, the Manitoba Club and St. Charles Golf and Country Club. He enjoyed his recognition as a select member of the 'hole in one' club. His favourite place of all was sitting with Mary by the fireplace at their second home at Block 12 Falcon Lake where he surrounded himself with his many Friends and family. He loved the sound of the loons in the evening. The grandchildren especially remember the sauna to warm up in after the thrilling tube rides behind the boat driven by Uncle Dave. The family would like to extend a sincere and heartfelt thank you to the Doctors, Nurses and Unit Staff of the Health Sciences Centre on 4GD for all their support during Jack's brief stay. A celebration of the life of A.J. 'Jack' MacIVER will be held in Winnipeg on Thursday May 15th, at 11: 00 a.m. at Knox United Church 400 Edmonton Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba. Interment to follow at Chapel Lawn Memorial Gardens - 4000 Portage Ave., Winnipeg, Manitoba. If Friends so desire donations may be made to the Canadian National Institute for the Blind, 1080 Portage Avenue, R3G 3M3 or the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 200 - 6 Donald Street, R3L 0K6.

DRAGONE o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2008-06-16 published
BUSH, Huntley Henderson " Ley" B.A.Sc., P.Eng.
Veteran World War 2, Royal Canadian Navy
Passed away peacefully on Saturday June 14, 2008 at the Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital at the age of 82, surrounded by his 4 loving daughters; Leslie BUSH- HARRISS, Kimberley GOULD, Kerry COOK, Lindsey DRAGONE. Survived by his wife Dorothy and his sons-in-law Hal GOULD, Mike COOK and Nick DRAGONE. Lovingly remembered by his 8 grandchildren, Daniel HARRISS, Hallie and John GOULD, Jordan and Barrett COOK, Frank, Dana and Cole DRAGONE. Also survived by his sisters Audley (George) JACKSON, North Carolina; Beverley MURRAY, Toronto and Linda BRESNAHAN, Massachusetts, and their children.
Born Verdun, Quebec 1925; served as Seaman for R.C.N. and R.N. and on H.M.C.S. Snowberry 1943-45. Member of P.E.O., A.P.P.E.G.A., I.E.E.E., U.N.T.D. (Upper Canada) and Zeta Delta of Sigma Nu.
Ley grew up in Montreal, and maintained ties with Friends, colleagues and family there after he left to enlist in the Royal Canadian Navy at the age of 17. His service in the navy on the H.M.C.S. Snowberry, and particularly its role during the preparation stages of D-Day, had a profound effect on his life and he continued his association with the Canadian Naval Association until his death. As a veteran, he attended memorial services held in Canada, Normandy and recently at the 60th anniversary of the V.E. Day celebrations in The Netherlands.
Upon his discharge from the service, Ley travelled to Toronto where he met and married Dorothy MOUNTJOY. He then enrolled at the University of Toronto and obtained his Electrical Engineering Degree. He was passionate about his chosen profession and only retired, reluctantly, in his seventies. His career allowed him to indulge another passion: travel, and he worked on many projects abroad, including Europe, Hong Kong and The Phillippines.
Ley and Dorothy had four daughters in quick succession, who subsequently married and provided him with sons-in-law, and eight grandchildren whom he adored. Poppa was devoted to his grandchildren and has left them all very special memories of family ski trips, evenings at the horseraces, and amusing tales and anecdotes from his childhood.
He will be thoroughly missed and his memory cherished.
Ley passed from this life as he lived it: unfailingly civilized, considerate and dignified. Rest in peace Dad.
The Family wishes to thank the staff at Hearthstone by the Lake for their kind care this last year.
Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to The Oakview Funeral Home, 56 Lakeshore Rd. W. Oakville (one block east of Kerr St.) 905-842-2252. Please call for arrangement details.
Donations to the Canadian Cancer Society, The Hospital for Sick Children or as desired will be greatly appreciated.

DRAKE, Florence (née SELVIN)
Unexpectedly but peacefully on February 27th at Saint Michael's Hospital in her 93rd year. The Selvins emigrated from Russia to Utah where Florence was born. Her studies took her to Mills College in California where she studied to become a social worker. She remained a proud and engaged alumnus. Marriage to Stillman DRAKE and his subsequent professorship at the University of Toronto brought Florence to Canada. The University of Toronto community was always dear to Florence's heart. Her compassion as a social worker benefited many of Toronto's disadvantaged as she generously supported numerous charities throughout the city. Florence's interest in the arts led her to the Art Gallery of Ontario where she was a volunteer for many years, arranging and leading excursions to Italy, a country both she and Stillman both loved. Family and Friends in California were never far from Florence's thoughts and she visited beautiful Berkeley and San Francisco often. Florence treated everyone she met with gentleness, kindness, and generosity. We will miss her lively conversation, her delight in exploring the culinary treasures of Toronto, and her infectious love of life. Those fortunate enough to have known Florence will miss the interest and sincerity she showed not only to her Friends but also to their families. Pre-deceased by her husband Stillman DRAKE and daughter Judy CASAROLI. Survived by stepsons Mark and Dan DRAKE and their families; nephews Steven, Michael, and Joel SELVIN and their families. She will be missed by her many Friends in the United States and Canada. A memorial service will be held on Wednesday March 26 (Florence's birthday) at 10: 00 a.m. at the Victoria College Chapel, University of Toronto.

Heinz NIEDERHAUSER, 72: Baker And Athlete
Chocolatier became leading cross-country ski coach
By Carol COOPER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S8
Heinz NIEDERHAUSER never seriously strapped on cross-country skis until he was in his 30s. Once started in the sport though, he never stopped - all the way to the Olympics. Over a span of 35 years, he tested instructors, started ski clubs, co-founded the Canadian Association of Nordic Ski Instructors and served as head coach of the national cross-country team.
His rigorous training programs took a no-nonsense approach. Athletes could expect three-hour runs, their coach in the lead, and to be left in the parking lot if ever they were late. "He was very dedicated, and we worked extremely hard under him," said Margaret Holden WAECHTER, who was a member of the Ontario Junior Team in the early 1980s. "He had this love of racing and training and health and fitness and he inspired people to be the best they possibly could be."
Raised in Zurich, Switzerland, he grew up as one of three children to parents who ran a chocolate factory. Young Heinz enjoyed sports and persuaded his Friends to stay play soccer by sometimes bribing them with bits of chocolate.
Never the keenest student, he finished secondary school and worked for a while in the factory. In 1952, he began an apprenticeship as a confectioner and pastry chef in Basel. Despite his father's skepticism, Mr. NIEDERHAUSER excelled, placing first in his year.
Between compulsory stints of military training, where he trained as an army cook, he worked in a confectionery shop in Lausanne until being persuaded by his father to return to the family factory as a salesman. A year later, he left after a row with his father and immigrated to Finland in 1957.
He found a job with a candy manufacturer where he fell in love with Ann SARKKI, a co-worker. They married in December, 1958, and immigrated to Canada three years later. The family (including new son Lars) settled in Toronto, where Mr. NIEDERHAUSER worked first at a bakery, then at the Westbury Hotel. Two more sons, Tom and Glen, quickly followed.
For seven years, the family owned a bakery in Scarborough before moving east to what is now Pickering, Ontario There, Mr. NIEDERHAUSER coached soccer and became involved in fitness programs at public schools. In the late 1960s, the family took up downhill skiing near Barrie, Ontario, and, after meeting some Finns and Estonians there, switched to cross-country. Before long, Mr. NIEDERHAUSER was racing (and losing miserably) against the experienced Scandinavians. He began training year-round and was soon beating them soundly.
In the 1970s, the sport took off, and so did Mr. NIEDERHAUSER's involvement. By 1975, he was the paid coach of the South Ontario Division ski team, and moved the family to the Muskoka region, where they lived on 32 hectares of land that soon became the Raymond Ski School.
Mr. NIEDERHAUSER used it as a training facility for the team and supplemented activities with year-round, week-long training camps in provincial parks.
In 1976, he co-founded the Canadian Association of Nordic Ski Instructors and, a year later, moved to Ottawa as technical director and head coach of the national team. However, not everyone appreciated his style. Grumbling followed his introduction of mandatory, European-style, early-morning runs, and discontent ran so high that he believed it would be better if he did not accompany the team to the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid.
To his disappointment, only the women's team competed. The Canadian Olympic Committee had deemed members of the men's team unlikely to place in the top 16 and told them to stay home.
Mr. NIEDERHAUSER was fired along with Jack SASSEVILLE, another coach. While the dismissal angered Mr. SASSEVILLE, Mr. NIEDERHAUSER chose to focus on ensuring a smooth transition. "That was his way," Mr. SASSEVILLE said. "He constantly was working towards trying to make skiing better."
That year, too, Mr. NIEDERHAUSER's marriage ended.
In 1981, he met Blanche DRAPEAU. During the next decade, the couple moved to White Lake outside Ottawa, purchased Lowney Lake Campground and started a family. From the campground, Mr. NIEDERHAUSER ran a bake shop and a landscaping business, while remaining involved in skiing.
During the 1980s, he also founded and coached the Ottawa Racers Ski Club and helped develop the city-owned Mooney's Bay facility into one for cross-country training and racing. He coached the Ontario Junior Team and served on the national ski team committee.
When the 1988 Calgary Olympics came around, Mr. NIEDERHAUSER was there as chief of manual grooming of the cross-country course. With his usual dedication, he supervised a large crew charged with touching up the trail with rakes and shovels.
Later, Mr. NIEDERHAUSER started the ski club that came to be known as Lowney Lake Nordic and was eventually based out of the campground. He also became involved with the national capital district ski program and the Ontario Junior Team. Among his protégés was Kate Brennan, who made her World Cup debut in last month's races in Canmore, Alberta.
Although Mr. NIEDERHAUSER officially retired last fall, he continued to coach. At the beginning of January, some of his athletes were competing near Collingwood, Ontario, and he took to the trails between events to prepare for an upcoming World Masters Race in Idaho in March. "It's a beautiful day for a ski," he said as they parted. He collapsed soon afterward.
Heinz Walter NIEDERHAUSER was born August 27, 1935, in Zurich, Switzerland. He died January 5, 2008, in Duntroon, Ontario He was 72. He is survived by his wife, Blanche Drapeau. He also leaves his children, Sven, Jana, Lars, Tom and Glen.
