FORSTER, Raymond George " Ray"
Passed away Monday, April 10th, 2006 in his 82nd year at the Lion's head Hospital. Beloved husband of Helen (LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY) FORSTER for 60 years. He was the best Dad and husband and will be terribly missed by his whole family which includes his son Brian and Debbie FORSTER of Burlington, daughter Linda and Jim WYONCH of Colpoy's Bay, grandchildren, Cherry and Autumn, Brian and Cam FORSTER and his five great grandchildren. Ray worked in industrial sales for many years in the Hamilton area and he was a World War 2 veteran. He loved fishing and hunting and boating on Lake Huron and cared deeply for his family. A very special thank you to Dr. JANNESON, Doctor THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and Doctor WONG. Also to the nurses, Nancy, Linda, Kim, Goldie and Christine for all your kindness, sensitivity and support during this difficult time. Also thanks to Ted and Phyllis HAYES and all the residents of Hayes Crescent Apartments for their caring compassion and support. In honour of Ray's request there will be no funeral services. But we leave you with this. When I come to the end of the road And the sun has set for me I want no rites in a gloom filled room Why cry for a soul set free. Miss me a little… but not too long And not with your head bowed low. Remember the love that we once shared Miss me… but let me go. For this is a journey that we all must take And each must go alone. It's all part of the Master's plan A step on the road to home. When you are lonely and sick at heart Go to the Friends we know And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds Miss me, but let me go.

Gino EMPRY, Agent And Publicist (1925-2006)
Brassy Toronto impresario with a 1,000-name roster of show-biz clients was, deep down, a shy guy with a heart of gold, and a regular churchgoer
By Ron CSILLAG,
Special to The Globe and Mail; Globe and Mail archives, Page S8
Toronto -- He spent one night with Pearl Bailey while the singer talked about the sex life of a pomegranate until 3 a.m.
Marlene Dietrich gave him a wallet with blank cards inside after spying him fishing around in his pockets for something to scribble on. "You must always be chic," she cooed.
Tony Bennett once fixed him with a stare and asked menacingly, "What the hell is that supposed to mean? Are you making fun of me?"
Phyllis Diller once sent him $500 to help pay for a nose job. On the other hand, buxom Jane Russell took one look at that generous schnozz and pronounced it "big enough to fit my cleavage."
Welcome to Gino EMPRY's world.
Talent agent, impresario, boulevardier and flack-turned-friend to dozens -- no darling, make that hundreds -- of stars, Mr. EMPRY was a throwback to an era when Public Relations men such as Irving "Swifty" Lazar bent the ears of such make'em-or-break'em celebrity scribes as Walter Winchell and Hedda Hopper.
For over 40 years, Mr. EMPRY was a show-biz fixture in Toronto, booking the talent at the fabled Imperial Room in the Royal York Hotel, hyping his stable to pretty much anyone who listened, befriending cops, doormen, tough guys and starving artists. Dubbed the father of celebrity publicity in Canada, it's probably no exaggeration to say he rubbed shoulders with every famous name in, well, the Western Hemisphere.
His 1,000-name roster of clients included, at various times, Mr. Bennett, Peggy Lee, Deborah Kerr, Cher, Jack Lemmon, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Bob Hope, Eartha Kitt, Peter O'Toole and, closer to home, Ronnie Hawkins, William Hutt, Karen Kain, Anne Murray and Roch Voisine. The only person he regretted not having worked with was Clark Gable. "But he's dead," Mr. EMPRY once observed. "Otherwise, I've met all the others."
His forte was the personal touch. "He and I hit it off quite well," recalled Ms. Murray. "He was always so flamboyant and we always had good laughs. He used to say to me, 'when are we gonna have dinner?' And, of course, we never had dinner. But every year he sent me a Christmas card -- every single year since 1971 -- and he handwrote on every one, 'when are we gonna have dinner?' "
It was a God-given gift, he told The Globe and Mail in a 1996 spread. "That's why stars trust me and why they have done things for me that they wouldn't do for other people."
Like the time he talked British singer Petula Clark into taking over a laryngitis-stricken Mr. Bennett's Toronto gig on one day's notice. Or when the Toronto police force "begged" Mr. EMPRY to get Hal Linden, then television's Captain Barney Miller, to appear at one of their bashes. "He said yes to me, and I guess that's partly why I have half the police force as my Friends," Mr. EMPRY recalled with satisfaction. "I just looove policemen."
And they loved him back. At his legendary parties, whether at the Royal York or at his knick-knack-filled, white-carpeted, shagadelic downtown pad, "half the Toronto police was there, and that's one reason he could park anywhere at any time, no questions asked," recalled Mary JOLLIFFE, who served as the Stratford Festival's first communications director. "He never paid a parking ticket -- ever," confirmed Helga STEPHENSON, a Toronto film promoter.
Mr. EMPRY was a character in a character's world. "People tell me, 'Gino, you don't walk into a room, you make an appearance.' " It was a trick he learned from Bernadette Peters. "She told me once, 'Gino, do you know how you get the best table in a restaurant? You walk to the front of the line and look imperious.' "
The look came naturally. The family name was EMPERATORE, from the Italian imperatore, meaning emperor or commander, or, to Mr. EMPRY, of the Caesars. "And my police Friends tell me I am like a Caesar, always ordering people around."
It was an unlikely trait for a pallid, elfin guy, barely 5 feet 6 inches (when not wearing his favourite two-inch heels), a Kim Jong-il-style bouffant 'do, silk ascot, and jewellery -- lots of it, as befitting someone with such distinguished roots. Around his neck was a multicoloured ammolite pendant -- a gift, he said, from Ella Fitzgerald. The heavy gold bracelet was from Tony Bennett, the Mickey Mouse watch from Kay Ballard, the diamond pinky ring from Glenda Jackson, and the goldfish charm from Lena Horne. A chunky signet ring flashed the family coat of arms: a star and a half-moon topped by a chivalric helmet, anchored by the banner, "Emperatore." This bit of heraldry also adorned Mr. EMPRY's gold-embossed business cards.
At his zenith, he managed Mr. Bennett worldwide for a dozen years, but not Robert Goulet, as has been reported. "Gino and I were Friends," said Mr. Goulet on the phone. "He did Public Relations for me in Canada. We loved him dearly." And then, he popped the most hotly debated question about Mr. EMPRY: " How old was he?" Told an estimate, Mr. Goulet seemed shocked. "Holy mackerel! He never looked it."
Like Jack Benny plus a decade, Mr. EMPRY was eternally 49. "I'm not vain," he insisted. "I just go to great lengths to look better than I am." He would say, with a straight face, that he was born in 1949, though biographical material says he graduated from the University of Toronto in 1961 at what would have been the precocious age of 12 (one unconvinced wag quipped that Mr. EMPRY "seems to have represented everyone from Sir Wilfrid Laurier to Ella Fitzgerald"). He was also coy about his credentials those close to him say he had been a bona fide chartered accountant.
One thing that might surprise people who couldn't see beyond the glitz -- Mr. EMPRY was, deep down, a shy guy with a heart of gold, and a regular churchgoer to boot.
"Everybody's talking about what a character he was and all the stars he dealt with, but nobody has said how helpful he was to a lot of unknowns... all the small companies starting out," said Sylvia SHAWN, who was Mr. EMPRY's partner for 20 years. "Whoever asked for help, got it."
And it was a long list: the Actors Fund of Canada, the Canadian Cancer Society, DareArts, Easter Seals, the Ontario Musical Arts Centre, juvenile diabetes, Israel Bonds and the Variety Club of Ontario, to name a few. In 1993, he received the city of Toronto's highest honour, the Award of Merit, and three years later, was guest of honour at a tribute from Famous People Players, the renowned black-light theatre company, one of his favourite causes.
Long-time Imperial Room maitre d' Louis JANNETTA, famous for refusing Bob Dylan entrance because the singer wasn't wearing a tie, recalled Mr. EMPRY's creation of "Gypsy nights" -- when the cover charge was dropped at the venue for young theatre unknowns.
"We allowed all the [local] theatres -- the Limelight, the Mousetrap, Second City -- to come for the late show on Thursdays of opening week without a cover charge." A lot of young artists came, John Candy among them, and to Mr. JANNETTA's consternation, their dress was not up to the room's formal standards. "I provided jackets for them," he noted. Mr. EMPRY "was a genius in his own right."
The eldest of nine children, Gino was the son of Arturo EMPERATORE, who came to Canada from a rural region outside Rome, and Lucy FLAMMINIO of Toronto, who was 15 when she gave birth to him. The couple ran a small grocery store and butcher shop, where the young Gino cut off the top of two of his fingers in a meat-slicing machine.
Mr. EMPRY remembered being "wretchedly poor. We had to count our pennies. In the Italian ghetto, there were gangsters and rough types. I used to get beat up because I liked school. I remember my mother telling me, 'There's more than one way to fight a battle. Use your tongue.' So I learned to use my mouth which is very useful in my business!"
He developed a love of the theatre while at Saint Mary of the Angels Separate School in Toronto. He acted with Catholic youth groups before joining an all-boys acting ensemble at Saint Michael's College. "I played Portia and Juliet because I was small."
He had an uneasy relationship with his parents and left home early. His father was distant at best. "My father was a wonderful man, but very shy, and never a father figure to me. So I kept looking for strong men to give me what I felt I needed -- authority. Being of Caesarean heritage… I'm both a gladiator and a slave. I'm a slave to my work and I'm a perfectionist. I insist on things being done right. There are no loose ends with me."
His first job was as a night auditor for a trucking company. Later, he worked as a systems analyst for a transportation firm, while appearing in some 50 amateur theatre productions, including what he'd refer to as his best performance -- in Teahouse of the August Moon. But he yearned for more, and plunked down $2,000 for a career consultant, who advised him to take two years to get a toehold in entertainment. Mr. EMPRY wrote hundreds of letters to radio producers, theatre owners -- anyone who might give him a break.
It happened in 1964, when the contacts he'd made at the Ontario Drama League led him to Ed MIRVISH of Honest Ed's discount store fame. Mr. MIRVISH needed a boost for his recently purchased Royal Alexander Theatre. To compete, it had to draw the big names away from the rival O'Keefe Centre, and Mr. EMPRY was hired. Emboldened, he formed his own booking and public-relations agency. "I started at the top," he said later. "You couldn't get any better than the Royal Alex at the time. I got $100 a week." Things only improved when the Irish Rovers signed him as their international publicist.
In 1970, he became entertainment director/Public Relations consultant for the 500-seat Imperial Room, then the country's top nightclub. In addition to A-list celebs, he booked female impersonators and Las-Vegas-style revues. Mr. Bennett, among the top acts, insisted on the same suite at the Royal York, one that faced east fronting the gilded Royal Bank Tower (the crooner's paintings adorned the walls of Mr. EMPRY's condo.) Count Basie was "the very essence of cool." Raquel Welch was "pretty, but not glamorous." Mr. EMPRY and dancer Cyd Charisse used "to sit for hours talking about everything under the sun… I never got tired of looking at those incredible legs."
The Imperial Room closed in 1989 and in 1991, Mr. EMPRY was abruptly dismissed from the MIRVISH account by Honest Ed's son, David.
He soldiered on with corporate shilling, including for Playboy magazine in Canada. Three years ago, he couldn't have bought juicier publicity than when he orchestrated a handshake and chit-chat between Aline Chrétien, prim wife of the then-prime-minister, and Tailor James, a well-endowed Toronto-born Playmate of the Month. Organizers of the charity event were miffed, but it got tongues wagging. The news media took note, but dismissed it as "a tempest in a D cup."
More recently, Mr. EMPRY farmed himself out, perhaps tongue-in-cheek, as "the Happiness Guru" ($100 for a one-hour session), inspired by sultry singer Peggy Lee, who referred to Mr. EMPRY in her autobiography by that 1960s tag. When he asked why, she replied: "Think about it, Gino. We are considered as stars in the entertainment industry but we are misused, abused, taken advantage of and left stranded in embarrassing situations that have nothing to do with what we really are all about.
"Along comes baby-faced Gino EMPRY, and he really cares. He understands our concerns, our worries and our needs. Even more important, he doesn't pander to the vanities we parade to our unsuspecting fans. He seems to know our weaknesses and treats them with love and respect. He really loves us!"
He really did. "He was very good to his clients, very loyal," Ms. JOLIFFE said. "He often worked around the clock for them."
Of course, there was his dark side. "To know Gino was, at one point, to have had a fight with him," said Ms. Stephenson. "He could be infuriating one moment and endearing the next."
A temper that fuelled more than a few thrown telephones got him into hot water in 1989 after an altercation with a woman in the lobby of the building that housed his million-dollar condo. The judge didn't buy his plea of self-defence, and he was fined $1,000. "I haven't used a lawyer since," he said, years later.
The appearance of Mr. EMPRY's memoirs was a foregone conclusion. He wanted to call them You Star, Me Gino, but the 2002 volume was titled I Belong to the Stars, a collection of piquant tales ranging from procuring hashish for Peter O'Toole, to getting Cher an Eaton's credit card, to fending off the advances of Xaviera (the Happy Hooker) Hollander.
Last year, he corralled support from musicians and performers in Toronto in an event to shine a light on increased gun violence in the city. This past summer, it was rumoured that he was working on a bash to celebrate the city's burgeoning Chinese population.
Mr. EMPRY never married, not even to his companion of 20 years, psychic Nikki PEZARO. He knew he occasionally rivalled the celebrity of some of his clients but "I'm a person in my own right, so why not?"
Gino EMPRY was born in Toronto on, it is believed, October 11, 1925, and died there on October 14, 2006, after suffering complications from a stroke that occurred in July. He was 81.

Mom, son drown in car
Canal relocation delayed by red tape
By Jim WILKES, Staff Reporter
Terror-stricken Cassandra READ screamed into her cellphone and begged a 911 emergency operator for help as her sport utility vehicle drifted and sank into the icy waters of a canal near Bradford north of Toronto Saturday night.
But the 32-year-old Keswick woman and her 4-year-old son drowned before rescuers could find the submerged Toyota 4Runner and pull it to the surface.
"I can't even imagine the terror they would have gone through, totally submerged in water, dark, where you can't see anything," said Acting Sergeant Paul HESHKA of South Simcoe police.
"Especially with a little guy like that, I just can't imagine how awful that would have been."
Bradford West Gwillimbury Mayor Frank JONKMAN said town officials have tried unsuccessfully for more than a decade to get approval and funding from senior government levels to shift the canals and create a land buffer between them and the road.
"We've spent over a million dollars on studies and engineering to do this and we're no closer to getting started on it than we were five years ago," he said. "Now we have two people dead."
There have been 19 deaths in the canals in the past 52 years, he said, including a man who drove his car off the road two years ago.
In the latest tragedy, police, fire and other emergency services scoured the inky black scene for traces of READ's car, which drifted about 40 metres downstream before it sank along Canal Rd., about 2 kilometres east of Highway 400, shortly after 7 p.m.
Divers and a small fireboat finally located the sport utility vehicle about 20 minutes later, but it appeared too late to save READ and her son, Taylor GRASBY.
Rescuers worked frantically, however, to resuscitate them. They were rushed to Southlake hospital in Newmarket, but emergency staff was unable to revive them.
Saturday's accident has devastated READ's family and Friends, her mother said yesterday.
"It's just terrible," Brenda READ said outside her daughter's home. "She did such a good job raising Taylor all by herself."
Family Friends said the boy's father died a couple of years ago.
READ said her daughter had spent the day at a flea market in St. Jacobs, just north of Kitchener, and was returning home when the accident happened.
"She phoned me when she got out of Orangeville on Highway 9 and she said the roads were bad," READ recalled.
"I said to her, 'Just put your truck in four-wheel drive and keep your foot off the gas and get off the cellphone so you can concentrate on driving.'
"I said, 'Give me a call when you get home or at least when you get into Keswick to let me know you're okay.'
"I never heard from her again."
Canal Rd. is often used by locals as a shortcut from Keswick and south Bradford to Highway 400 and is busy weekday mornings and evenings with Toronto commuters.
The road was originally built in the 1930s atop a dike separating the canals from the fertile Holland Marsh to service adjacent farms. JONKMAN said it was never designed to handle the heavy traffic it now gets.
Dan VANDER KOOI, 44, has lived across from the crash site for 11 years and has seen other accidents on the road, including one where the car was prevented from entering the water because it hit a tree.
"We're used to the road, so we learn to live with it," he said. "We don't give much thought to how dangerous it is."
Art JANSE, the town's drainage superintendent, said there have been many close calls over the years, including an accident last summer when another woman and child went into the canal in a car.
"But she managed to get out before it sunk," JANSE said.
JONKMAN said Saturday's accident appears to be the result of bad road conditions, which were icy and slushy even though a plow had been through the area earlier in the evening.
"There have been a lot of people gone into the canal," he said.
"A lot of them have gone in on account of their own fault, from drinking or driving too fast.
"This certainly was not the case with this one, I don't believe."
He said the town would press ahead with plans to relocate the canal first proposed in 1993.
"We keep running into obstacles from government ministries," he said.
Shifting the dike would cost about $18 million and put a 20-metre land buffer between the water and the road.
JANSE said it would cost $4.5 million to install guardrails along the road, but called the measure a temporary stopgap because the peat that the road is built atop isn't stable enough to hold the railings in place.
"It's just as cheap to build a new canal as to clean this one out," JANSE said, explaining the canals haven't been dredged since Hurricane Hazel in 1954, when town officials widened the canals, bringing them closer to the road.
"But we got into bureaucracy, after bureaucracy, after bureaucracy," he said.
"Government red tape is costing lives."

JANSEN--In memory of my brother Michael Jansen.
TIME
Sometimes the time just slips away
And you are left with the memories
I always think of you and smile,
And be happy for the time I had you with me
I won't forget..
So don't forget the memories we made
So many in my mind,
I still don't understand
How do you get that lonely?
How do you hurt that bad
To make the call
That having no life at all
Is better than the life you had
How do you feel so empty?
When your life had so much to show
How do you get that lonely?
And nobody knows?
Loved and missed dearly by your sister Kyla.

JANSEN--
In loving memory of Michael JANSEN, a beloved son, brother and daddy, who went to be with Jesus three years ago on February 7, 2003 at age 23.
It seems so short,
Oh very short since Daddy went away.
I remember all the things
We did like it was yesterday.
Those simple words of Alexandra, now eight,
Express our thoughts too.
"That's Daddy's cup," Brianna states.
We look and know it's true.
A hidden memory, made at three,
Surfaced to be enjoyed anew.
We thank our Lord for memories sweet.
They can make us laugh or without warning, weep.
Our God who loves us, took Michael home.
Yet he walks with us,
So we are not alone.
God allows us to have
Both joys and tears,
And we are thankful
For Michael's precious years.
Forever remembered by Mom and Dad, Serena and Marius and Family, Kyla, Erica and Thomas, Peter, Alexandria and Brianna.
