MASON, Patricia (DOUGHTY) (April 17th, 1921-December 15th, 2004)
Know that we love you, And still do today, Know how much we miss you, And in our hearts you will stay, They say there is a reason, They say that time will heal, But neither time nor reason, Helps the emptiness we feel, Each morning when we wake, We know that you are gone, No one knows the heartache, As we try to carry on, The special years will not return, When we were all together, But like the love within our hearts You will be part of us forever. Remembered with love and sadly missed by husband Bill, children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

In loving memory of Gail who passed away December 30th, 2004.
One year ago you left us
In tears we saw you sinking
We watched you fade away
You suffered much in silence
Our hearts were almost broken
You fought so hard to stay.
You faced your task with courage
Your spirit did not bend.
But still you kept on fighting
Until the very end.
God saw you getting tired
When a cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around you
And whispered "come to Me".
Love, Greg, Alison, Scoff, Dad and Mother.

Harold, Marion, David and Carolyn operated Hickory Crest Farms, the dairy farm where Harold was born in the Gore of Downie Township. Harold had three loves in his life, his family, the land and all thing mechanical. His love of the land was reflected by his many activities including Chairman of the Perth County Soil and Crop Association, Chairman of the Perth County Milk Committee and as the first board member of Region 10, of the Ontario Milk Marketing Board. His love of all things mechanical was centered on his collection of vintage Ford vehicles (he earned his last speeding ticket shortly before his last birthday) and "museum quality" agriculture machinery, most of which worked! He was also a pilot and owned a Piper J-3 for a number of years. Harold will also be much missed by his constant, and not so silent companion, Jack Russell, Gigi.

In loving memory of my wife Edith who passed away on December 16, 2003. We seldom ask for miracles, But today, one would do, To have the front door open, And see you walking through, A million times we've missed you, A million times we've cried, If we could have saved you, You never would have died, You suffered much in silence, But your spirit did not bend, You faced your pain with courage, Up till the very end, To us you were so special, What more is there to say, Except to wish with all our hearts, That you were here today. Miss you more than words can say. Always loved and remembered your husband Al, children Adrian and wife Melissa, Lindsay and husband Bruce, Martin, and grandchildren Chelsey, Bailey, and Cameron.

William MacMurray LOUGHEED
By Donna DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS, Friday, February 4, 2005 - Page A16
Neurosurgeon, teacher, husband, father, boat-builder. Born July 9, 1923, in Toronto. Died September 30, 2004, in Barrie, Ontario, of respiratory failure, aged 81.
There he sat, a short, round-faced young man, hunched over the dining room table, Plasticine model in hand. At right, his wife's sewing kit. At left, a brain X-ray. With patience, the young surgeon recreated that brain, blood vessels, arteries, tissue everything. He tested needle entry angles, complexities of reach and retrieval. "Test" over, he left for Toronto General Hospital. Bill LOUGHEED's legacy is larger than his own life. First, surgeon. Then, teacher of medical residents. Researcher. Author of medical papers that shifted neurosurgery to new heights.
Excellent teachers stand back and let students learn. Even in life-and-death operating room experiences, Bill could navigate residents through complex neurosurgical procedures with heroic patience and achieve a positive outcome, the medical resident's pride of achievement intact.
The country's medical geniuses pay tribute to the man with the growly voice, the operating room work-boots, the ability to relate a procedure involving minute operations on the brain to the building of a boat. Son, brother, husband of doctors, Bill thought like an engineer. He looked ahead, tested, thought things through.
Bill's family grew up watching their father "operate" on the Christmas turkey. Precision, instruction -- doled out with humour and candour -- were part of the trademark style of the man whose life-work has saved thousands of lives.
Through neurosurgeon Dr. K. G. McKENZIE, Bill decided to pursue research into the blood vessels of the brain. Consider his firsts: being Canada's first (and one of the world's first) neurosurgeon to use the microscope in the operating theatre; designer of the world's innovative, life-saving aneurysm clip; performer of the world's first long-vein artery bypass for the brain. During his lifetime he became a neurosurgical superstar.
A man with several communities, Bill balanced, often precariously, the needs of a vibrant neurosurgical practice, a demanding operating schedule, research responsibilities, teaching position, and cottage community where his love of boats embraced the entire family.
Bill built an eight-foot boat for each of his grandchildren. By the time each was 3, they were -- life-jacketed -- rowing green or yellow punts up and down the waters of Georgian Bay, calling on their Friends as awestruck parents looked on.
He believed potential surgeons should be graded on woodworking as well as science. He used the same approach in his garage as in his research labs. Make a model. Then test it. Rebuild it. Retest it. Don't use the marine mahogany until you're sure it's going to work.
Bill LOUGHEED respected people in every walk of life, his O.R. nurses as much as surgical residents. He gave the same attention to the marina owner where he kept his boat as he did to the hospital Chief Executive Officer.
Bill met his wife, Grace, in medical school and Grace concentrated on his career and their family of five. She enhanced his ability to reach for the highest branch. Together they were impulsive, creative, funny, forgiving. When Bill retired in 1991, they moved to Barrie to be near family. Here Grace died in 1995. In the same home, sailboats on the bay outside his front window, Bill suffered a final respiratory attack. Bill's kids, along with his later life partner, Margot MacKAY, celebrated his life with his "communities." In his later life, Bill created a wonderland for squirrels, for blue jays, for cardinals, for tiny finches, coaxing them to his side for daily treats; his last years full of wonder at the power of a kind voice and patient hand.
Donna is a friend of the family.

BYERS, Robert Reid " Biker Bob"
Bob died suddenly and mercifully among his Friends and courier colleagues, on Thursday, June 16, 2005, on a midday break from high-speed messengering around downtown Toronto. "Mercifully", because he died doing what he loved.
A legend among Friends and family, Bob was a true eccentric and iconoclast who never bowed to authority, but held tight to traditions of love and loyalty. Born January 17, 1947, in Kirkland Lake, Ontario, Bob was predeceased by his parents, Mary Winnifred (REID) and Robert Clyde BYERS, and by two siblings, Peter Clyde and Mary Sue (Douglas). He leaves his remaining siblings and in-laws, nephews and nieces: Anne TRORY, Susan and Jill, and Jim TRORY in Vancouver; John and Jane BYERS, Nathan, David and Alan in Espanola; Jim and Kathleen BYERS, Samantha, Millie and Lexy in Toronto; Peter DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS, Scott, Graham and Trevor in Toronto and Mary GORDON, Kennedy and Kip in various parts of Ontario, and all of their mates and children. Bob is missed by his many Friends and co-workers
Bob was raised in the Abitibi Canyon and in Mattawa. He married young and had two children, while he worked a strenuous stint in the mines in Sudbury. When his marriage ended, Bob left on his lifelong quest for individuality and independence. He traveled everywhere in Canada, usually on a bike, and he did all sorts of work, from hard labour at the Victory Mills to social and residence work at Domum.
He was a journeyman bookbinder, a loving son, a demanding chess player, a generous uncle, a mentor to his colleagues, and often loved a spirited argument in politics, morality, and ideas. He was kind, gentlemanly, and generous. He made a difference in the world around him.
According to his wishes, Bob was cremated right after his death. Friends and colleagues are invited to join his family at a memorial service on Saturday, September 10, 2005, at 12 o'clock noon, at the Metropolitan United Church, 56 Queen Street East in Toronto. Following the service, his family will carry him north to Massey, Ontario, where he will be buried with his beloved parents in the Grandview Cemetery on Sunday, September 11 at 1 o'clock p.m.

Standish Alan HARRIS
By Chip COOMBS, Friday, December 9, 2005, Page A28
Teacher, husband, "pappy," uncle, gardener, naturalist. Born January 5, 1901, in Kilmallack, Ireland. Died August 14 in Caledon, Ontario, aged 104.
A much loved, gentle man and revered former teacher at Upper Canada College in Toronto, Standish Alan HARRIS inspired those around him to be simply better and, in this harsh world, to be kinder.
Educated in Ireland, Alan graduated from Trinity College, Dublin. He taught for five years in Ireland, before setting out for Canada in 1925.
He was soon offered a position teaching at Upper Canada College, where he remained until his retirement in 1965. He taught a variety of core subjects, but it was mathematics that was his forte. Many of his students found math challenging and Alan spent countless hours after school helping those who were struggling.
He also coached numerous sports teams, including cricket, soccer, hockey, boxing, and track and field -- always stressing the importance of good sportsmanship.
Alan had an instinctive flair for teaching, was well versed in and enthusiastic about his subject, truly loved what he did and did it for the satisfaction of seeing his students gain confidence and skill. He never ceased learning and caring for his students. He was an exemplary teacher.
Alan's love for his profession was closely matched by his love for and never-ending interest in the natural world around him. At the school's Norval outdoor teaching centre north of the city, he was personally responsible for the planting of hundreds of thousands of trees and for starting an arboretum (subsequently dedicated to him) and for setting up Upper Canada College's outdoor education program. Alan loved birds and provided about 450 kilograms of feed annually at the bird feeders surrounding his Caledon home.
His beautiful old-fashioned garden has often been the target of many wild creatures, and, though he was unable to thwart their attacks on his plantings, he was content to have the animals as neighbours. If fortunate enough to visit Alan at the appropriate season, visitors to his country home would be rewarded by a bucket of peonies or an armload of fresh asparagus to take home.
One day in 1940, Alan was taken home for lunch by one of his students to meet the student's widowed mother, Naomi "Pick" DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS. Alan was smitten and they were married in 1942; a union that was to be both long and happy. Alan's love and devotion to Pick was never-ending and in her final months, he rarely left her side. When she died, Alan was bereft and hit bottom, and stayed that way until Upper Canada College asked him to help orchestrate some key alumni events.
Alan was more than a beloved teacher to generations of boys, and a loving husband. He was the epitome of a gentleman. He embodied old-fashioned gallantry toward women and had a warm and open heart to all children. To family members, he was known affectionately as "pappy" or Uncle Alan, and by former students as their own "Mr. Chips."
He was a kind and very generous soul who found it difficult to accept a favour, yet, without the slightest hesitation, would offer anything and everything to someone in need. Most of his former students would remember him as being strict, but in a manner that demanded respect. When honoured by Upper Canada College around the occasion of his 95th birthday, he was swamped by the good wishes of former students, virtually all of whom he remembered, often even recalling this boy's prankish uncle or that boy's mischievous father. Inside the teacher was a ready sense of humour with a generous spirit, a loving and youthful heart and a sensitive compassion for all of those around him.
Chip was Alan's friend and former student.
