LEVINE, Samuel Robert " Sam"
On Saturday, January 22, 15 days after celebrating his 90th birthday: Sam LEVINE, professional musician, musicians' advocate and raconteur passed away after a long illness.
Sam was a long-time member of the Toronto Symphony's double bass section. He was also a proud President Emeritus and Life Member of the Toronto Musicians' Association, Local 149, American Federation of Musicians.
Sam spent much of his career working to improve the security and quality of life for Canadian professional musicians. He fought hard to keep live music alive when disco threatened to make it disappear.
Born in Toronto in 1915, Sam was the son of Russian- Jewish immigrants Morris and Annie LEVINE. When they were swept away by the Spanish Flu, his aunt, the late Dora Nepom, courageously stepped in and became "Mother" to four- year-old Sam and his younger sister Laura.
Sam graduated from Harbord Collegiate, played guitar, banjo and bass in various bands including the Trump Davidson Orchestra. With partners he opened the Onyx Club on Church Street, Toronto's first jazz club. It survived long enough to host Duke Ellington in an after-hours jam.
With World War 2, Sam enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force, spending the war years in a musical show, "The Blackouts", travelling up the British Columbia coast to Alaska and overseas, entertaining the allied troops.
Initially, Sam was stationed in Ottawa, where he met the magnificent Tula MARLIN, a secretary in the War Department. After a courtship conducted mostly by mail, they married in 1946, set up house in Toronto and started their family.
Sam graduated from the Royal Conservatory of Music and joined the Toronto Symphony's bass section. Through the Fifties and Sixties he continued to play club and studio dates along with weddings and bar mitzvahs.
He became a union activist, serving for years as a vice-president, then president of Local 149 after retiring from the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. To support symphonic musicians, he helped found the Association of Canadian Orchestras.
Among Sam's greatest loves were his family, his music, fellow musicians, a good story, television sports, the City of Toronto, and the Scarborough bungalow that was our family home for 50 years. He hated hypocrisy, injustice, interruptions, unkempt lawns, boiled chicken, deejays and disco.
Beneath Sam's private and dignified persona of strong commitments and high principles was a fun-loving man with a mad sense of humour. At the family dinner table, gems from his fund of jokes, memories and funny stories nearly always followed dessert.
As a father Sam was straightforward, demanding, supportive, adoring and inspiring. He liked to say his children never took any of his advice...but he knew better. He may have been wrong in 1959 (and every year thereafter) when he said that "rock and roll is dead", but he was right about almost everything else.
Happy and proud to have shared Sam's life and sadly mourning his death are Tula, his beloved wife and companion of 59 years, daughter Anita DAHLIN of Brechin, Ontario, son Mike LEVINE and his wife, Rosie, of Toronto. He was the cherished grandpa of Corinna DAHLIN of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and Matt LEVINE of Chicago. He is dearly loved and missed by his only sister, Laura EDELL of Syracuse, New York her sons Mark of Las Vegas, David of New York City and their children, as well as by many cousins, nieces and nephews.
Sam was a treasured member of Tula's family - the Marlins of Hamilton, the Sauve and Barnaby families of Ottawa will all miss him.
He is also remembered by many dear Friends from his musical past, including former Toronto Symphony players Marilyn MEYER, Ruth BUDD and Murray GINSBERG, all of Toronto.
Our family gratefully thanks the staff of Providence Centre for their care over the last six months.
In Sam's memory, please enjoy the live music of your choice.

LEVINE, Tula (née MARLIN)
Peacefully, on August 15, 2005, our wonderful mother passed away at the age of 82. Tula was predeceased in January by her beloved husband, Samuel. She is deeply loved and sadly missed by her children, Anita DAHLIN of Brechin, Ontario, Michael LEVINE and his wife Rosie of Toronto, and by her grandchildren, Corinna DAHLIN of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, and Matt LEVINE of Chicago, Illinois
Tula was the second daughter of George MARLIN, an immigrant from Pirgos, Greece and Nora BONANG, an Acadian from Chezzetcook, Nova Scotia. Tula grew up in Montreal and Ottawa, moving to Toronto upon her marriage to Sam, a loving partnership of 59 years. Our mother created a happy, vibrant and supportive home for her family, welcoming Friends, Dad's colleagues and extended family with warm hospitality.
Tula is dearly loved and missed by her brothers, Lew (Margaret) and George (Josie) MARLIN of Hamilton, her sister Toni SAUVE (Leo) of Ottawa, her brother-in-law Gerry BARNABY and their families. She was predeceased by her sisters Athena GRIFFIN of Vancouver and Jacqueline BARNABY of Ottawa. Tula is remembered with great affection by her sister-in-law, Laura EDELL of Syracuse, New York and her family, Sam's cousins in Toronto and California, dear friend Marilyn MEYER of Toronto and many Friends and neighbours.
In accordance with her wishes, Tula was privately cremated. Our family thanks Scarborough Grace Hospital Palliative Care Unit and Dr. Larry GROSSMAN, the staff of Sunrise Senior Living Richmond Hill, Ms Cheron ROBINSON, Dr. Brian BERGER and Hill House Hospice for their professional and devoted care of our mother, who died of metastatic brain cancer. In memory of Tula, we encourage donations to Hill House Hospice of Richmond Hill or the charity of your choice.

Missed brain injury kills bride-to-be
Different diagnosis may have saved her, fiancé says
Young couple would have been married this summer
By Mike FUNSTON, Staff Reporter
Oakville couple Karen SHANK and James CLARK were to be married on July 30, but today CLARK is mourning the death of his fiancée. The 32-year-old woman succumbed to a stroke brought on by a rare injury, which doctors failed to diagnose after a car accident.
"The accident happened almost right outside our home -- I heard the bang and ran outside -- somehow I just knew it was her," said a distraught CLARK, who was able to comfort SHANK moments after the crash.
CLARK wants to know if a different diagnosis in the emergency room at Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital in Burlington could have saved her life. The coroner's office is investigating.
On May 19, SHANK, program manager for the Canadian Red Cross water safety program, was returning home at 4: 38 p.m. when, according to Halton Region police, her Honda Civic was struck as she made a left turn from Neyagawa Blvd. onto River Oaks Blvd.
SHANK suffered a whiplash-type injury and took a bang on the head from the car's air bag, CLARK said.
At the hospital, head, neck and back X-rays were taken in the emergency ward, but nothing serious was detected and SHANK was sent home that same evening with Gravol for nausea, said CLARK, who said she couldn't maintain her balance and needed help walking as they left hospital.
The next day, SHANK was becoming less coherent and was taken back to Brant. Later that day, she was transferred to Hamilton General Hospital and admitted for treatment.
Three days later, on May 23, SHANK died from what an autopsy revealed was a stroke caused by an injury, police said.
CLARK was later told that two key blood vessels had been compressed, slowly choking off the blood supply to the brain and that it was a very rare type of injury. Had only one of the blood vessels been damaged, she wouldn't have died, he was told.
A memorial service for SHANK was held Wednesday in Oakville.
SHANK was to be cremated and her ashes taken to Saskatoon for a memorial service there on Monday. She was born in Moose Jaw and also lived in Burnaby, British Columbia, as well as Saskatoon.
SHANK's parents, Bill and Carol, are United Church ministers in Saskatchewan. SHANK is also survived by a brother, Brian.
"They're taking it hard, but they're fantastic people," said CLARK. " They're as solid as rocks. Their faith is helping them get through this."
Coroner Dr. David EDEN said it will be six to eight months before all the tests are complete and a decision can be made on whether to hold an inquest.
Brant hospital spokesman Ebbe MARQUARDSEN said the hospital is conducting an internal investigation.

'She wasn't supposed to go,' 10-year-old's grieving aunt says
By Peter EDWARDS, Staff Reporter, Page A1
Hamilton -- Ten-year-old Emily PORTO loved to watch her cousin Francesco play hockey, and begged to watch his game on Thursday night, even though it would mean staying up a little late.
Emily's mother relented, and so Emily went to 13-year-old Francesco's elite-level game in Guelph with Francesco, his mother, Vivian PORTO, 43, and his sister, 10-year-old Azzidene.
They were all killed in a two-vehicle collision around 10: 45 p.m. Thursday along a deadly stretch of Highway 6, north of Parkside Dr.
Four people in a sport utility vehicle that collided with the PORTO minivan suffered potentially life-threatening injuries. Their identities have not been released, but they are a 40-year-old Cambridge man, who was driving, and a 38-year-old Cambridge woman and the man's 17-year-old son and 14-year-old daughter from Perth. They are all in serious condition in area hospitals.
Police blame bad weather for the collision.
"She wasn't supposed to go," Emily's aunt Lisa ULRICH said yesterday in an interview at Emily's home. "Emily got very excited about attending. She begged her mother to go. The cousins are very, very close."
Hanging behind her in the family garage was a wall of sports equipment for Emily and her family.
Their mother, Vivian, loved being a hockey mom, even though Francesco's membership on the triple-A elite level minor bantam Hamilton Junior Bulldogs meant several nights a week on the road.
When not caring for her four children -- including older boys Amadeo and Riccardo, who also play hockey -- Vivian PORTO ran three fabric stores.
"There was never any doubt that her commitment was to the children," ULRICH said. "It was hockey, hockey, hockey. She was a hockey mom."
Other family members were also devastated by the accident.
Emily's brother Gabriel, 3, still hadn't been told about her death yesterday.
Emily and Gabriel were thrilled earlier this month when they got to sit on the knee of Santa in a mall near their home, their grandmother Diana BORDONARO said.
BORDONARO stared at Emily's bicycle in disbelief, then said she loved to show pictures of Emily and her wide, distinctive smile to everyone she knew.
"She had a dimple on one cheek.... I bragged about her to everyone," her grandmother cried. "... I can't imagine this...
"I just took them to see Santa. It was wonderful."
BORDONARO said she doesn't know how to break the news to Gabriel, who's excited about Christmas.
"He never called her Emily," she said. "It was 'sister'... She became a little mother to him. She protected him."
Several people witnessed the accident near the intersection with Highway 5, including other members of the Junior Bulldogs and their parents.
Highway 6 has caught the attention of the regional coroner, Dr. David EDEN.
"We're very concerned about this and we'll look at an inquiry, but we're a long way from making that decision," EDEN said. "I travel that road and it's a very busy stretch of road."
The 24-kilometre stretch of road linking Highways 403 and 401 has been the scene of at least 20 fatal accidents since the early 1990s.
Residents and police blame a lack of barriers between the north and southbound lanes as well as the absence of snow fences to block snow drifts that blow in from surrounding open fields.
"The roads were generally good," said Ontario Provincial Police Sgt. Cam WOOLLEY. " However, during the evening winds had picked up and there was blowing snow that had drifted along Highway 6. When (the victim's) van hit the snowdrift she lost control.
"She ended up in the northbound lanes sideways and into the path of the Blazer. Both vehicles were believed to be doing the speed limit of 80 km/h. So it was not survivable.
"The minivan was hit broadside and then pushed back into the guardrail."
Hamilton Jr. Bulldogs president Frank CASALE said he first heard of the accident at 8 yesterday morning and immediately set out to get grief counsellors for the team.
"I couldn't believe it," CASALE said. "We're all in shock. The team, the coaches, the executives are all grieving. He (Francesco) was a wonderful kid, a good hockey player."
Francesco's and Azzidene's dad and Vivian's husband, Sam, is a trainer on another of their teams where he has another son playing, CASALE said.
"I just don't know how he is coping with it all," CASALE said.
The funeral for all four PORTO family members will be 10: 30 a.m. Wednesday at Saint Margaret Mary Church. Funeral arrangements are being handled by the Friscolanti Funeral Chapel.

Girl's gifts still sitting under tree
Two families devastated by deadly crash
Locals describe Highway 6 as 'Killer 6'
By Dana BORCEA and Meredith MacLEOD, Torstar News Services, Hamilton Spectator
Hamilton -- Emily PORTO's Christmas presents sat under the tree. Her broken-hearted parents don't know what to do with them.
The 10-year-old girl was one of four family members killed in a horrific car accident late Thursday night.
Emily's mother, Laurie, said she is overcome with grief, but grateful for the outpouring of support her family has received in the days following the tragedy.
"This reminds me what Christmas is all about," she said.
Emily's aunt, Vivian PORTO, was driving the van carrying her niece as well as two of her own children, Azzadine, 10, and Francesco, 13, back from a hockey game in Guelph when she hit a snowdrift on Highway 6 and spun out of control before being broadsided by an oncoming sport utility vehicle.
The highway is nicknamed "Killer 6" by some local residents. The 24-kilometre stretch of road from Highway 403 to the 401 has been the scene of at least 20 fatal accidents since the early 1990s.
Residents and police blame a lack of barriers between the north and southbound lanes as well as the absence of snow fences to block snowdrifts that blow in from surrounding open fields.
A high volume of traffic was also cited as a contributing factor in the crash.
In response to Thursday night's accident, Dr. David EDEN, the regional coroner, said he is considering calling an inquest into the safety of that stretch of Highway 6.
Police agree the highway can be hazardous.
"Highway 6 can be an unforgiving highway," said Sgt. Cam WOOLLEY of the Ontario Provincial Police highway safety division.
Flamborough Councillor Margaret McCARTHY said the highway falls under the jurisdiction of the province's ministry of transportation. After hearing about the fatal crash, her office forwarded a request to the ministry to erect snow fences along the highway.
McCARTHY said residents have expressed concerns about the highway for years.
"It's a complicated piece of road," she said. "To suggest that there is an easy fix would be negligent."
Gary MISNER, a Freelton resident who travels Highway 6 every day, said the stretch where the PORTOs were killed used to be protected by a snow fence. He happened upon the accident minutes after it happened and said the area was the only snow-covered spot on Highway 6 that night. Strong winds had been blowing for hours, MISNER said.
Sudden drifts on the road, combined with a looming stoplight, make for a dangerous combination, he said.
MISNER said snow fences should be installed to prevent drifting snow from piling up on the highway.
He also said the speed limit should be reduced to 70 km/h and strictly enforced.
"There will be other big accidents along there," MISNER warned.
Emily's aunt, Lisa ULRICH, estimated that close to 200 people had come through the home to offer their condolences to both families. She expects about 1,000 people to attend visitation and funeral services early this week.
Among them will be members of Hamilton's Italian community, minor-hockey families, and family colleagues from the textile, development and hospital industries.
"They've been coming out in droves," ULRICH said on the weekend, pointing to the line of parked cars spilling out of the driveway and down the street.
"To have a quiet, empty house -- especially at this time of the year -- would have made this even harder," she said.
On Saturday, family gathered at the home of Vivian's parents, Anna and Adriano SPALLACCI, with Father Bill TRUSZ, a pastor at Saint Margaret Mary Church.
"They prayed for those that died and for those who survived," said TRUSZ. " They are deeply stricken and just taking it one hour at a time."
Visitation for Vivian, Francesco, Azzadine and Emily PORTO will be held today and tomorrow from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at the Friscolanti Funeral Chapel on 43 Barton St. E., Hamilton.
The funeral for all four will be held at 10: 30 a.m. on Wednesday at Saint Margaret Mary Church at 20 Idlewood Ave., Hamilton.
