TYM, Graeme
Paterfamilias, pioneer, sailor, friend. Born March 8, 1921, in Ashton-under-Lyne, England. Died December 20, 2007, in Oakville, Ontario, of heart failure, aged 86.
By John W. CLARKE Jr., Page L8
Graeme TYM's life was touched by both serendipity and significant challenges.
He began life fortunate his father had a job in local government, which meant the family was relatively financially secure during the 1920s and 1930s.
Graeme's luck changed, however, in 1940 when an incendiary bomb landed in his backyard during the German Blitzkrieg on London. While he was attempting to pour a bucket of sand over it, the bomb exploded, blinding him in one eye at the age of 19.
Graeme's strong personality and determination were forged during his long and painful recovery in hospital. In spite of his disability, he served as an electrician in the Royal Air Force for the rest of the Second World War.
Soon after his recovery, fortune again touched Graeme when he met Ena SMALL at a dance. They married in 1942 and remained devoted to each other for the next 65 years. They had four children: Jane, Geoffrey, Peter and Diane.
After the war, Graeme and Ena decided to move to Canada. Graeme obtained a job at Burlington Steel (later Slater Steel) in Hamilton, where he remained for the next 25 years, retiring as production manager at age 54.
Graeme and Ena made a life that revolved around family and Friends. He always made time to take his family on camping trips and Sunday picnics. He was also an avid sailor and delighted in taking his children, and later the grandchildren, sailing on Lake Ontario and in the Florida Keys.
Graeme possessed a colourful and fascinating personality; he could be strong and opinionated but also shy and reticent. He held opinions that could sometimes appear inflexible and antiquated, but such shortcomings were balanced by an overwhelming generosity and altruism toward Friends and family.
Many years ago, when one of his grand_sons was suffering through a "dark night of the soul," Graeme sent him a card of encouragement and support. When his grand_son opened the card, a small, folded piece of paper fell to the floor. On it was typed Invictus, William Ernest Henley's poem:
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate
I am the captain of my soul.
During the last year of his life, Graeme suffered a series of small strokes. Until the end, he retained his sharp wit and sense of humour, and bore his failing health with stoicism.
The roles he most cherished, and for which he will be best remembered, were those of husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend.
John W. CLARKE, Jr. is Graeme's grand_son.

TYMCHUK, Mary
Passed away on April 13, 2004.
We often think of bygone days
When we were all together
The family chain is broken now
But memories will live forever
Lovingly remembered by the family
