PISNI, Stephen Alexander
Of New York City and Roxbury, Connecticut, died unexpectedly in his sleep Sunday night, April 20, 2008. Born in Toronto, Canada, to Stephen and Sadie Pindur PISNI on June 8, 1931, Steve went to New York in 1959 as a ticket agent for Air Canada. He remained with Air Canada in increasingly responsible positions, including Midwest Regional Sales Manager from 1967 until 1969, and retired as Public Relations Manager, Eastern United States, in 1982. He then founded his own public relations firm, Stephen A. Pisni Public Relations, with Air Canada as his main client, and retired finally in 1996. A longtime associate member of the Society of American Travel Writers, he received two presidential awards from the Society. Steve was also a lover of opera, operetta (especially Hungarian operetta), music in general and show business. He is mourned by his life partner, Jerry ALLFORD; a sister, Mary GATTI of Allison, Ontario; a niece, Carole Ingham, Ottawa; nephews John GATTIN of Nobleton, Ontario, Paul GATTI, Syrma, Tennessee, U.S.A.; and Michael PISNI of Winnipeg, Manitoba; and many Friends, including Barbara Gillam.

VARGA, Nelson Alexander, P.Eng.
Royal Canadian Navy, Royal Canadian Navy Anglers Association Passed away peacefully Wednesday, March 12, 2008 at the McCall Centre, Etobicoke. Nelson was in his 81st year. Beloved husband of 56 years to the late Letitia Jean (née VALLANCE) VARGA. son of the late Nelson Alexander and Beatrice (née CAMPBELL) of Windsor. Loving father of his only child, Susan LETITIA and her husband Kypros Stylianou PISSAS of Mississauga. Brother to June, Jo-anne and the late Velma, and Beverley. As a Professional Electrical Engineer, Nelson was passionate about his work. He received a B.Sc. (Elect) degree from RNTC (U.K.) in 1950, and received a diploma in advanced mathematics from Cambridge Institute of Science and Technology (Toronto) in 1974. Dad was afforded the opportunity to work extensively throughout Canada and the United States - including Chrysler Corporation (1951-56); Giffels and Vallet (1956-60); Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (1960-64) Smith, Hinchman and Gryils (1964-71); Pearson International Airport (1971-79); York University (1979-91) and after retirement, Gosse and Gilewicz Engineering Inc. (1992-2007). Throughout his early career, Nelson was hired as a Consultant on many interesting projects - including the Apollo Moonshot program (NASA). Proud member of the Professional Engineers of Ontario and the Naval Veterans Association. Hobbies included reading (mostly engineering journals!) and biomedical technical research. This resulted in two invention disclosures (Commissioner of Patents, Washington, D.C.). In his later years, Nelson put 'technical pencil to graph paper' to write poetry. His sister June and daughter Susan were the recipients of weekly prose over the last two years of Nelson's life. Nelson's family will receive family and close Friends at the Turner and Porter "Peel" Chapel, 2180 Hurontario Street, Mississauga (Hwy. 10, North of Queen Elizabeth Way) from 1-4 p.m. on Sunday, March 30, 2008. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Little bird sitting in a tree Wishing I were you and you were me But that can never be So fly away little bird and be free And maybe someday we will meet in eternity And I'll be you and you will be me. ~ N. VARGA, 07.22.06
