DENOVAN, David McClintock
David and his dear wife, Nancy St. Clair Ryley DENOVAN, died on November 20, 2007 on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia. David was the son of Samuel Parker DENOVAN and Laura McCLINTOCK and the brother-in-law of George Moore RYLEY, all pre-deceased. He and Nancy were dearly loved and will be sadly missed by their niece Norah RYLEY of Toronto, nephew Peter RYLEY and his wife Denise HUPÉ of Ottawa, sister-in-law Jessica RYLEY of Toronto and many close Friends. Born on February 13, 1944, David grew up in Toronto and studied Engineering at the University of Waterloo. He began his career as a production film editor with Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television in Toronto in 1967. His editing credits included popular series such as Man Alive and The Nature of Things as well as many award-winning dramas and documentaries. His love of film extended to his personal life where he was an avid collector and home-theatre buff with a special interest in the science fiction genre. Later in life, he and his wife moved to rural western Canada where he became involved in environmental concerns and efforts to protect wilderness areas while also indulging his passion for skiing and hiking. Cremation has taken place and will be followed later by burial and commemorative gatherings. Memorial donations to the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society, the David Suzuki Foundation or the Sierra Legal Defence Fund would be greatly appreciated.

DENOVAN, Nancy St. Clair (née RYLEY)
Nancy and her dear husband, David McClintock DENOVAN, died on November 20, 2007 on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia Nancy was the daughter of Alfred St. Clair RYLEY and Norah Frances MOORE and the sister of George Moore RYLEY, all predeceased. She and David were dearly loved and will be sadly missed by their niece Norah RYLEY of Toronto, nephew Peter RYLEY and his wife Denise HUPÉ of Ottawa, sister-in-law Jessica RYLEY of Toronto and many close Friends. Nancy was born on March 14, 1932, grew up in Montreal, did undergraduate studies at McGill and post-graduate work at the University of Toronto. Her subsequent career as a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television producer, director and writer was highlighted by her series of documentaries about Canadian artists, musicians and naturalists. Her choice of subjects reflected an abiding sense of a soul connection with nature. Her passion for Canadian art as a representation of that soul was captured particularly in her films about Emily Carr and Lawren Harris which received both national and international awards and continue to be shown in museums and art galleries. Later in life, Nancy and her husband left Toronto to establish their own connection with nature in rural western Canada. The proximity to the wilderness and her own garden sanctuary on Salt Spring Island gave her great joy. Her 1998 book, The Forsaken Garden, is based on her experience living with environmental illness and explores the deep psychological and spiritual relationship between the health of our bodies and souls and the health of the planet. To her, "the garden is a metaphor for the soul, a place where the most important thing is to live and grow; to return to our garden is to consciously return to a place of fullness and naturalness of being that the modern world in its frenzied pace has threatened to obliterate." Cremation has taken place and will be followed later by burial and commemorative gatherings. Memorial donations to the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society, the David Suzuki Foundation or the Sierra Legal Defence Fund would be greatly appreciated.
