BRANGET, Louis Charles
Passed away peacefully on Wednesday October 31, 2007 at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Barrie in his 53rd year. He dearly loved his children Crystal, Echo, Nikki, Ernest and Minno and grandchildren Kristen, Cole, Isaiah and Alexandra who all live in British Columbia. Louis was the 5th of 15 children born to Joan BRANGET and the late Ernest BRANGET. He was predeceased by brothers George and John, and sister Mary. Surviving siblings are Diane (McKAY,) Bruce, Raymond, Daniel, Susan (BAZANT), Armand "Joe", Gerald, Joan (STROUD,) Pamela (PIERCE,) Margaret (BARRETTE) and Michael. Louis spent most of his life searching for relief from debilitating emotional and physical pain. He coped by labouring long hours with very little sleep while he did the work of two or three men always in physically demanding situations. He loved a challenge and was happiest doing demolition and salvage work that other contractors would not even bid on. He was always creating something functional or decorative from items that others had discarded. A skilled taxidermist, Louis also enjoyed cooking, fishing, gardening, music, and a good laugh. He loved nature and preferred to live outdoors where he felt closest to God. Louis lived his last year in the care of his sister Diane and her husband Brian who saw that his complex health issues were correctly diagnosed and treated. When he was not in hospital undergoing chemo, radiation or surgery treatments for cancer, Louis could be found riding around Creemore on his homemade scooter or his high-tech electric wheelchair. He enjoyed spending time down at the Mad River checking out potential fishing spots and he rarely missed a yard sale. Louis often commented that he wanted to spend the rest of his life in Creemore as it was the happiest and most peaceful period of his life. It was his wish that his ashes be interred at the Creemore Union Cemetery during a private memorial service in the summer of 2008 when all his children can be present. Those who wish to remember Louis in a special way are asked to make a donation to the Creemore Tree Committee, Box 2073, Creemore, Ontario L0M 1G0.

'He became effortless in his greatness'
It was his experience under fire as an army medic serving in Italy during the Second World War that imbued him with a spiritual appreciation of humanity, writes Sandra MARTIN. He would later draw on it as one of Canada's finest classical actors
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S7
A man who could command a stage in any country and who chose to make his career in Canada, William HUTT was a formidable presence at the Stratford Festival since its founding in 1953, appearing in myriad roles from Prospero, Lear and Falstaff to Lady Bracknell in The Importance of Being Earnest. For fans, he made Shakespeare accessible, speaking in his homegrown voice rather than adopting plummy tones from across the Atlantic. For actors, he was a mentor, a friend and an avuncular presence, showing them how to inhabit a stage without hogging the limelight. And he did it all with generosity and panache. The stage was his home, and no stages were more familiar to him than those at Stratford, where he performed in 130 productions over 39 seasons.
"This is a historic moment in Canadian arts," Richard MONETTE, artistic director of the festival, said in an interview. "It is a cause of mourning for this loss and also a cause of great celebration because of his legacy. He was a great classical actor and he essayed all the great roles. He was equally at home with crowds as well as kings. He had a great range, everybody in the audience could relate to him - whether they were society people or farmers, he could appeal to them. He became effortless in his greatness."
William Ian deWitt HUTT was the middle of three children of Edward deWitt HUTT, a magazine editor, and Caroline Frances Havergal (née WOOD.) His mother suffered from septicemia after his birth, and was soon pregnant with her third child. Consequently, he spent long periods of time with an aunt and uncle in Hamilton. "My aunt belonged to Christ Church and they were doing a Christmas pageant. I was only 4 or 5 years old, but I wanted to be in it," he said later. He had only one line - "Beads for sale" - that he delivered looking directly at the audience. At that moment, he fell in love with performing.
During the Depression, his father's magazines failed and he was forced to sell insurance, a job he "loathed," and to move his wife and children into a home belonging to her family. Young Bill attended Vaughan Road Collegiate and then North Toronto Collegiate, performing occasionally in school productions, including a role as a policeman in The Pirates of Penzance. A gangly loner, he was socially awkward as a teenager; that's when he realized he was bisexual. Homosexuality was morally taboo and illegal in the 1930s, and that increased his sense of isolation from his family and his peers.
He did very poorly in high school and left without graduating in 1941 to enlist in the army and the 7th Light Field Ambulance Unit. He was 21 and, unlike many young men who dash off to war deluded by visions of glory, he "had no intention of shooting anybody," as he explained in an interview in his Stratford living room last Friday afternoon.
After going overseas, he saw a production of Arsenic and Old Lace in London with Sybil Thorndike and Lillian Braithwaite that enthralled him, but it was his experience as a medic that imbued him with a spiritual appreciation of humanity that he would draw on later as an actor. "You see a lot of death and dying and the one thing you realize is that the cheapest commodity on the market is one human life." He won the Military Medal for bravery and was promoted from corporal to sergeant after he volunteered to set up a first aid centre under heavy mortar fire just north of Cassino in Italy. He never liked talking about his heroism, explaining that "you just do what needs to be done, you don't think about it."
When he returned to Toronto in 1946, he marched into Exhibition Stadium and was told that his parents were sitting in the section of the stands marked H. When he saw his mother for the first time in five years, she looked at him blankly across a morbid divide of devastating experience, and said nothing, not even his name. "It haunted me for a while," he admitted on Friday.
He realized he "had to get on with my life," so he enrolled at the University of Toronto's Trinity College, which gave him a high-school equivalency based on his war service. He performed at the Hart House theatre, and graduated with a bachelor of arts degree in 1949.
By then, he had already gained experience in summer repertory and a season with Canadian Repertory Theatre in Ottawa. He also directed Little Theatre groups throughout Ontario and adjudicated for the Western Ontario Drama League from 1948 to 1952. When he heard that Tom PATTERSON was launching the Stratford Festival in 1953, he said he had to look up the place on a map. Although he thought Mr. PATTERSON was "out of his cotton-picking mind," he signed on and spent most of the next decade serving an apprenticeship in supporting roles such as Sir Robert Brackenbury and Captain Blunt in Richard III and Minister of State in All's Well That Ends Well in the festival's inaugural season, and Froth in Measure for Measure, Hortensio in The Taming of the Shrew and Leader of the Chorus in Oedipus Rex the following year, when he became the first recipient of the Tyrone Guthrie Award.
He was not an overnight sensation, waiting until after he was 40 to land his first major role at Stratford - Prospero in The Tempest - in the festival's 10th season in 1962. The following year, he dazzled critics and audiences with his sexually ambivalent portrayal of Pandarus in Troilus and Cressida.
Although the stage was his mainstay, Mr. HUTT also appeared in film and on television, notably as a port-soaked Sir John A. Macdonald in the 1974 Canadian Broadcasting Corporation-television production of Pierre Berton's The National Dream, a performance that earned him both a Genie and an Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists award. He also played the father in Robin Phillips's The Wars, based on the novel written by his friend, Timothy Findley. Mr. HUTT generally disliked the disjointed "bits and pieces" approach of filmmaking, complaining that it was antithetical to the process of developing a character and fleshing it out with other actors in the immediacy of a continuous theatrical performance. Nevertheless, he recently starred in six episodes of the television series Slings and Arrows, playing an aging actor performing Lear.
People were surprised when he was cast in the female role of Lady Bracknell in Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest in 1975, but he made the character his own. He said he learned "stillness" from a comment by director Robin Phillips: "Lady Bracknell moves through a room without disturbing one speck of dust." Her towering feathered hat perched atop his 6-foot-2 frame made it awkward for him to move, and he resolved "never to move on stage, unless it improved on stillness." What he wanted to share with the audience was the fact that "thought conveys itself" through the stillness that precedes movement.
In 1979, he played the fool to Peter Ustinov's Lear, making way for the British actor's celebrity turn on the Stratford stage in a role that Mr. HUTT had already played twice. But it was Mr. HUTT's tragic death-haunted fool that drew the raves; according to backstage lore, Mr. Ustinov was "shaken" by his supporting actor's greatness, never thinking that "such an actor was here on this continent."
He had a dry spell at Stratford under John Hirsch, who was artistic director from 1981 to 1985, and only cast him in one role. He fared better under John Neville, but truly enjoyed a renaissance when Richard MONETTE became artistic director in 1994. By then, Mr. HUTT had become heavily involved in the Grand Theatre in nearby London, where Martha Henry was artistic director from 1988 to 1994, and had appeared at the rival Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake in Man and Superman in 1989.
When Mr. HUTT received a Governor-General's Award for lifetime achievement in the performing arts in 1992, he couldn't accept in person because he was performing in A.R. Gurney's The Dining Room at the Grand. The following season, he had three major roles at Stratford: Falstaff in Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor, diplomat Harry Raymond in Timothy Findley's The Stillborn Lover (a play that Mr. Findley had written for Mr. HUTT and actress Martha Henry; Stratford reprised it in 1995 as a 75th birthday present for him), and James Tyrone in Eugene O'Neill's A Long Day's Journey Into Night.
About this time, people began asking when he would retire from the stage. He blamed himself for starting the rumour after he performed in The Tempest at Stratford in 1999 and said he wanted to take a year off. That same year, Canada Post issued a stamp celebrating the Stratford Festival with an image of its famous thrust stage superimposed with an ethereal depiction of Mr. HUTT as Prospero with his arms outstretched and a wistful expression on his face. The following year, the City of Stratford renamed the Waterloo Street bridge in his honour.
Instead of taking a final bow at Stratford, he added a new venue to his repertoire by agreeing to play the poet Spooner in Soulpepper's remounting of Harold Pinter's No Man Land in 2003, the first time he had been on a Toronto stage in nearly two decades. " HUTT's Spooner is a miracle of economy, delivering every ounce of the text with an efficiency that makes his performance almost terse in the play's first act," said Kate TAILOR/TAYLOR, then theatre critic for The Globe and Mail, before he "masterfully delivers Spooner's final proposal with an expansiveness that leaves one speculating about the desperation beneath and so closes the play."
The man who lured Mr. HUTT to Toronto was Soulpepper impresario Albert SCHULTZ. A member of the Young Company when Robin Phillips was artistic director at Stratford, Mr. SCHULTZ had played Edgar to Mr. HUTT's desolate monarch in the festival's 1989 production of King Lear. Mr. HUTT returned to Toronto and to Soulpepper in 2004 to play Vladimir in Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot. During rehearsals, he told The Globe's Ian Brown that "most of my dark moments now centre around just how many more years I am going to be granted. When I turned 80, the heart specialist - because I have a bit of a heart problem - said, 'Well, after 80, it's a bit of a crapshoot, you know.' " By then, he had a bad back from an injury he incurred in the 1950s when, as a minor player in The Merry Wives of Windsor, he jumped into a laundry hamper and jolted his spine.
Although Mr. HUTT had officially retired from Stratford at the end of 2005 with his poignant and masterful performance as Prospero in The Tempest, leaving the audience with the final words, "Let your indulgence set me free," he agreed to come back for one role this year as a farewell gesture to artistic director Richard MONETTE, in Diana LeBlanc's production of Edward Albee's A Delicate Balance. In March, he underwent a series of tests and was diagnosed with anemia, which turned into acute leukemia. He withdrew from the play, offering "my most profound apologies for the problems and inconvenience I'm sure it will cause."
And then he prepared for what he said on Friday was his final project - death - of which he was determined to be the "project manager." With landscape gardener Matthew MacKAY, the man who shared his home since 1973, he chose a cemetery plot and decided on his epitaph: Soldier and Actor. After a stay in hospital, he returned to his home on the banks of the Avon in Stratford and visited with family and Friends, including Albert SCHULTZ. "Bill was extremely brave and generous in preparing those near to him for his final exit. And yet today it seems unthinkable that he is no longer among us," he said in a statement.
On Tuesday, Mr. HUTT decided it was time to go back to hospital. That same afternoon, Michael Therriault, who once played Ariel to Mr. HUTT's Prospero and is currently getting raves as Gollum in the English production of The Lord of the Rings, cancelled a performance to fly home to see him. Sadly, he arrived a few hours too late.
The three stages of William HUTT
His voice was commanding and polite when I requested an interview two weeks ago. "I will be happy to talk with you, but my days are short," he said. "I am looking on my demise as a project, and I am the project manager." We set a date for last Friday afternoon.
On a clear, sunny day I walked across the bridge named in his honour to his house on Waterloo Street in Stratford, where the white Cadillac, with WMHUTT on the licence plate, was parked in the driveway. I rang the doorbell and was ushered into the living room by his housemate, Matthew MacKAY. Wearing a loose, brown-patterned shirt over casual trousers and, with terribly swollen ankles showing above a pair of moccasins, Mr. HUTT sat in a wing chair beside a window. He was attached to a portable oxygen tank and did not rise to greet me -- yet another indication, from an unfailingly courteous man, that his strength was failing. His face had a waxy pallor and, as a reformed smoker after more than 60 years of cigarettes, he was often racked with coughing spells, but his conversation was thoughtful and engaging. Over the next 90 minutes, he talked frankly about his parents, the war and his introduction to death before he had had a chance to know much about life. He said there are three major changes: The first is adolescence, when things happen to your body and your mind. The second stage is when you are in your 20s and your parents become your Friends rather than authority figures (the war had interrupted that process for him and left him divided from his parents). The third stage, the one he was entering, is death and wondering what that will be like.
Mr. HUTT was well aware of his own capacities as an actor. "I will leave the word 'great' to history," he said, "but I do know that in some kind of way, my career as an actor has paralleled the growth of theatre in this country." He said he had always been very practical as an actor, and that his decision to stay home rather than to chase fame in London and New York came from an "arrogant pride" in Canada. "I had no intention of leaving this country until I was invited. I wasn't going to beg." And by doing so, he showed that it was possible to have both a stellar career here and illustrious offers to work elsewhere. Of artistic director Richard MONETTE, who built so much of the last 15 years at the festival around him, Mr. HUTT said: "He has prolonged my life and my career."
The only question he deflected was about his romantic life. He referred to his housemate Mr. MacKAY as "the backbone of my life," but insisted on keeping the nature of their relationship private. "He has his own life, he always has had. I know people would like to pigeonhole it, but it isn't a pigeonhole thing."
Sensing his fatigue, I said my goodbyes. After struggling to get up, he pulled my face down and kissed me on both cheeks, a farewell that only now I realize was permanent. Sandra MARTIN
William deWitt HUTT was born in Toronto on May 2, 1920. He died in hospital in Stratford, Ontario, on June 27, 2007, of acute leukemia. He was 87. A funeral is being planned for Saint_James Anglican Church in Stratford.

Also survived by his sister, Helen McKAY. Preceded in death by a brother Keith LOVE. He will be greatly missed by his immediate and extended family and his many Friends and former students. Bob had a knack of quickly making Friends and then making them honorary and loyal members of his extended family. Bob had a very distinguished academic career. He began his university education at the University of Toronto with an engineering degree and after working in the industry continued on to obtain an M.B.A. at the University of Western Ontario and a Ph.D. at Stanford University. He taught at Berkeley, Western, and the University of Wisconsin, before coming to McMaster from the University of Wisconsin to help establish the PhD program in the Faculty of Business. Bob published some eighty articles in scientific journals, supervised 12 PhD students to completion and co-authored a very influential book in his specialty. He had a great influence on the field of location theory. There is now a very large body of research based on his original and seminal work. He also served on many high level academic committees and editorial boards. In 1999, the year he retired, he received the Lifetime Achievement in Location Analysis Award. This is an award given only every three years on behalf of a large international and interdisciplinary research community and recognizes the impact of the total contribution of the winner to the field.

A fine athlete he enjoyed football, hiking, scuba-diving, skiing and golf at the Oakville Golf Club, badminton and tennis at the Oakville Club; Doug was also an avid swimmer at his beloved Balsam Lake and in their condo pool in Florida. Dad first took up tennis in his mid-forties at Long Point and enjoyed the sport so much he formed a committee and funded the construction of a new second court in the centre lands. His enthusiasm for the sport and initiative led to the existence of two excellent courts enjoyed by the cottagers extensively. The Association in his honour have named the annual Cup and Saucer mixed doubles championship the "Tough Trophy".
Upon his retirement he and Betty enjoyed many years of travel, to Europe, China, Russia, Indonesia and many cruises in the Caribbean, barge trips along the canals of France were a highlight.

Border Collies, Raleigh, Collette, and Bailey were a big part of his life as was his interest in painting where many of his family have treasured possessions of his talent. Many of Doug's Friends have tokens of his artistic ability, sketches and cards etched on birch bark were his forté. For over 20 years Dad encouraged and organized family parties at Long Point, memorable events that will always be remembered and cherished by all of us. His family was his greatest dedication and our love and respect will be his finest achievement.
Our special thanks to Doctor Ken Collett, for his care and support to Doug and the family, he is truly a credit to his profession. We also want to thank the many compassionate caregivers at the Ian Anderson house for their dedication and commitment in making Doug comfortable and safe during his stay at their Hospice.
