ROSE, Dennis Gerald
Passed away, with his family at his side, on February 5, 2008, at Saint Michael's Hospital, Toronto, following an accident. He is survived by his dearly loved wife, Barbara (SURBECK) and their three beautiful daughters: Catherine (Sean FIGUEROA) of Toronto, Rhonda (Jonathan GERALD) of Toronto and Chantal (Scot HUTTON) of Quadra Island, British Columbia. Dennis was so proud of his "girls" and of course of his two grandchildren: Alexandra HUTTON and Django HUTTON. Dennis was predeceased by his parents, Gerald and Rosaleen ROSE of Hamilton. Dennis will be greatly missed by his brother and closest friend, Roger ROSE (Judy) of Hamilton and by many nieces and nephews in Hamilton, Ottawa, Charlettown and in the U.S. Dennis was born in Rose Valley, Saskatchewan but moved as a young child to Hamilton, Ontario for his formative years. Dennis was an artist from the beginning, studying drawing and painting in Hamilton, working in a graphic design studio there until he received a scholarship to study painting in England. In his next years he again turned to the graphic design and illustration business and to working as an Art Director in advertising agencies in Montreal before starting his own graphic design business there. After 20 years in Montreal he moved the business and the family to Toronto. During his active work life he continued his studies in fine art and graduated from Concordia University, Montreal, with a Bachelor of Fine Art. Since selling his business in 2000 Dennis has been pursuing his painting interests and has been an active member of the Arts and Letters Club of Toronto. A man for all seasons, Dennis relished the rush of a good long distance bike ride, an invigorating long swim and the challenge of a cross-country ski course. His motto was always "just try a little harder". A Service of Remembrance will be held at Timothy Eaton Memorial Church, 230 St. Clair Avenue West, Toronto, on Monday, February 11, 2008 at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers donations will be gratefully received by The Canadian Hearing Society at 271 Spadina Road, Toronto, M5R 2V3, or Timothy Eaton Memorial Church at 230 St. Clair Avenue West, M4V 1R5, or please plant a tree in Dennis' memory.

GERHART, Muriel (née HADLEY)
(May 31, 1918-January 28, 2008)
Muriel GERHART of Calgary, passed away on Monday, January 28, 2008 at the age of 89 years.
She was born in Toronto and raised in Buffalo. As a young girl she moved back to Toronto and lived most of the rest of her life in southern Ontario. After Toronto, there was Clarkson in southwest Mississauga and then Parry Sound. In her last years, when her ability to care for herself diminished, she moved to Calgary to be near her children.
Muriel was a wonderful singer and that showed in everything she did. Whether she was actually singing, on stage, in a recital or in church, or looking after a sibling or an aged parent, making a place for her own family to grow, running a business, contributing to her community, or dealing with the limitations that old age finally brought to her, she found the music and sang it into whatever came her way. We will miss her so much, but her music stays with us.
Muriel is survived by daughter and son-in-law Rhonde and Richard LESUEUR, and their two children Jamie and Philip of Calgary by son and daughter-in-law Paul and Mary Ann and their two children Meghan and David of Lethbridge; and by her brother Bernard HADLEY of Parry Sound, Ontario. She was predeceased by her husband Gene, brothers Stan and Ray, father Albert and mother Mabel.
A Private Family Memorial will be held at a later date. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
In living memory of Muriel GERHART, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McInnis and Holloway Funeral Homes Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 Elbow Drive S.W., Calgary, Alberta Telephone: 1-800-661-1599.

GERIS o@ca.on.middlesex_county.london.london_free_press 2008-04-25 published
Body found behind school
By Joe BELANGER, Fri., April 25, 2008
Sun Media -- Londoner Harry GERIS -- a three-time Olympian known as the Gentle Giant of Canadian wrestling -- died suddenly yesterday, his body found behind a high school.
His body was found by a construction worker at 7: 30 a.m. behind Saunders secondary school, where he was delivering wrestling mats for an elementary school tournament.
GERIS, 60, is survived by his wife, Jo-Anne, and three sons, Jason, Ryan and Shawn, who all became wrestlers.
Police said foul play isn't suspected. An autopsy will be done to determine the cause of death.
"He was known as the Gentle Giant," said Glynn LEYSHON, 78, a former University of Western Ontario wrestling coach who took GERIS to his first international match in 1964.
"He'll be sorely missed. He did an awful lot for the sport and, as a friend, he'd do anything for you. You only had to ask and he'd do it if he could."
The former insurance salesperson made a living supplying wrestling equipment for tournaments, but spent most of his time volunteering as a wrestling coach.
GERIS was born in the Netherlands. His family immigrated to Canada when he was a child.
He earned a scholarship to wrestle at Oklahoma State University, a powerhouse in the sport.
"Harry was a friend to me and one of the great Olympians," Oklahoma State wrestling coach John Smith said through a spokesperson.
"Not only did he represent Canada, he represented Oklahoma State. He was a great man… and he will be missed."
Just three weeks ago, a wrestler coached by GERIS, Katie PATROCH, 25, a teacher at Westminster secondary school in London, won her first national championship in the 59-kilogram category to earn a trip to Tokyo for the world championships in October.
"I wouldn't be anywhere near where I am today without Harry," said a tearful PATROCH.
"If anybody asked him for help, he was there. He was a member of the family to me and undoubtedly changed my life."
Accolades and condolences poured in from across Canada as word of GERIS's death spread.
"It's just so sad, a real shock," said Josip MRKOCI of London, chairperson of the Commonwealth Amateur Wrestling Association.
"I consider him one of my best Friends. He dedicated his life to wrestling. The wrestling world has lost a person who supported wrestling his entire life, never thinking about himself, always volunteering for everything."
MRKOCI lamented that he missed the deadline by five days to have GERIS nominated for induction into the London Sports Hall of Fame this year.
"Maybe I can convince them to consider Harry," he said.
Western wrestling coach Ray TAKAHASHI went to the 1976 Olympics as a junior with GERIS.
"He's a legend in the United States and Canada and wrestling has really lost a big friend," said TAKAHASHI.
"He was a friendly giant. He had a heck of a big voice, a heck of a temper, but a really big heart.
"We used to run together and, for such a large man, he was a really good runner."
GERIS, who stood six-foot-four and weighed in excess of 220 pounds, was U.S. junior college heavyweight champion in 1968 and runner-up in 1969
He finished fourth in the National Collegiate Athletic Association championships in 1972, his final year.
LEYSHON said, despite his size, GERIS was a gentle spirit.
"Being involved in a contact sport was (an) antithesis to his character," said LEYSHON.
"I remember once at a meet he pinned a guy down in about 45 seconds, helped the guy up and apologized.
"He's going to be sorely missed."
Harry GERIS
Graduate of Beal secondary school in London he won the Ontario high school championship, the Ontario open and the Canadian championship.
Ten-time Canadian heavyweight champion, who first competed internationally for Canada in 1966 at the British Empire Games and worlds in Toledo, Ohio.
Earned a three-year scholarship to wrestling powerhouse Oklahoma State University and finished fourth in the National Collegiate Athletic Association championship in 1972. He finished fourth in the World Student Games in Moscow in 1973.
Competed for Canada at the Olympics in 1968 (Mexico), 1972 (Munich) and 1976 (Montreal), twice at the world championships, the Commonwealth Games, Pan-Am Games (winning bronze in 1975) and the World Student Games, winning two bronze medals.
Served as president of the Ontario Amateur Wrestling Association, the Ontario Olympic Wrestling Federation, the London-Western Wrestling Association and the Southwest Optimist Club of London.
Volunteer coach anywhere he was asked, including the University of Western Ontario.
Inducted into the U.S. National Junior College Wrestling Hall of Fame in 1980.
Inducted into the Canadian Amateur Wrestling Hall of Fame in 1984.

GEROUX, Myles (1948-2008)
July 16 Happy Birthday Myles!
Before I met Myles in the early '80's, he had already established himself as the top life insurance agent in London. This status continued for several more years. Myles shared his good fortune with his family and Friends. There is one special person in his life that he spoke of constantly; his daughter. Even with all life's twists and turns, Myles still kept his sense of humour. The following Sinatra tune comes to mind: That's life, that's what all the people say. You're riding high in April, shot down in May. But I know I'm going to change that tune when I'm back on top in June. And I said that's life, and as funny as it may seem, some people get their kicks stomping on a dream; but I don't let it get me down 'cause this fine old world; it keeps spinning around. I've been a puppet, a pauper, a poet, a pawn and a king. I've been up and down and over and out; and I know one thing, each time I find myself flat on my face, I pick myself up and get back in the race. That's life I tell you, I can't deny it. I thought of quitting baby but my heart just ain't going to buy it; and if I didn't think it was worth one single try, I'd jump right on a big bird and then I'd fly. I'm sure Myles is spending all his days golfing with his best friend Paul. Love, from a friend.
