PLANK, James Wilfred
Heard his name on February 29, 2008. His release from earthly pain was welcome and well prepared as his loved ones were gifted with time to acknowledge and share their love and admiration for this first-class man - a gentleman and a scholar, Jim modeled a life of strong Christian values, solid family ideals, and a deep work ethic. His joy was found in his love of the Lord, his lifelong sweetheart, his family, great literature, and fine works of music. Jim had the ability to inspire those around him to rise to greater heights morally, intellectually and spiritually, challenging us all to follow our own paths. His impact was felt by many after 34 years of teaching - many of these at Herman Collegiate Institute in Windsor. And, he lent comfort to many through his years of Pastoral Care in jails and hospitals, and his Elder work in his churches. His careers included selling subscriptions to Liberty magazine as a young boy, reining in run-away horses on his 2nd job as milkman, teaching and volunteering with the Alzheimer Society. Born on October 29, 1930 in London, Ontario, Jim spent most of his school years there before moving with his parents to a farm in Merlin, Ontario. Jim enjoyed a blessed and rich childhood. He will be dearly missed by his sisters Audrey LUMLEY (John,) and Marion WINDELL. He is predeceased by his parents Laura and Fred PLANK, his sister Helen ZANIER and his brother Fredrick PLANK. Jim takes temporary leave from his wife of 53 years, Mildred PLANK and his four children - Cynthia MORRIS, Grant PLANK (Linda PLANK), Amy ROBINSON (Claude ROBINSON) and Jennifer PLANK (Michael WATTS.) He is well loved by his grandchildren: Nicole PLANK, Jennilee PINO (Brad), Benjamin ROBINSON, Andrew MORRIS, Kimberly PLANK (Eduardo), Patrick ROBINSON, Nicholas ROBINSON, Helen WATTS, Dakota ROBINSON, Emma WATTS, Nakita ROBINSON, and his Great-Grandchildren: Lucca CONTE, Amilia PINO, Ella PLANK. We invite you to share our tears and joys in celebrating the life of Jim PLANK through your prayers of thanksgiving for a life well lived. At the request of James, there will be no funeral or public memorial service - his spirit lives on when you gather for prayer, raise your voice in song, or are moved by fine prose. Donations to the Foundation of Chatham Kent Health Alliance-Magnetic Resonance Imager Campaign (http://www.foundationckha.com/mri/mri.html) or charity of your choice, would be greatly appreciated. Arrangements entrusted to McKinlay Funeral Home, 459 St. Clair Street, Chatham. (519) 351-2040.

A fierce litigator who was a 'gentleman'
By Jacquie McNISH, Page B7
George GLEZOS dove into lawsuits with intensity, argued with a flourish in court, never uttered a cross word to opponents, sometimes exercised twice a day at his gym and wrote outrageous e-mails.
When the Lerners LLP litigator died suddenly of a brain aneurysm on Sunday at the age of 53, stories circulated quickly about his ferocious appetite for the law, sports and his family.
"He leaves a huge hole and ache in many lives," said his partner Earl CHERNIAK.
In law, Mr. GLEZOS distinguished himself by taking on what his partner Peter JERVIS described as "the steepest and deepest cases." At Lerners, Mr. GLEZOS is remembered for irreverent e-mails.
His favourite e-mail command, Mr. CHERNIAK said, was "reply all."
When a law clerk once sent a firm-wide e-mail asking whether anyone spoke Polish, Mr. GLEZOS hit "reply all" and wrote: "The Pope."
When another Lerners employee sent an e-mail about a new firm policy requiring prior approval for promotional expenses, he replied: "I will be taking 100 clients to Hawaii. It will cost a lot, but it will be worth it as we have been promised a lot of business, which will keep us all employed. Please approve."
One of Mr. GLEZOS' most memorable lawsuits was ultimately lost at the Supreme Court of Canada.
The case was a claim by an investor that few other law firms would tackle because it accused major retailer Danier Leather Inc. of failing to disclose negative sales data at a time when it was selling company shares.
Mr. GLEZOS and Mr. JERVIS won the closely watched case at trial, but it was ultimately overturned in Canada's highest court.
Despite the roller-coaster ride, Danier's lawyer Ben ZARNETT at Goodmans LLP said Mr. GLEZOS never lost his cool.
"George was the kind of lawyer with whom you could litigate a high-stakes case like Danier for years and right up to the Supreme Court without ever exchanging an angry word," Mr. ZARNETT said.
"He was a gentleman."
Paul STEEP at McCarthy Tétrault LLP opposed Mr. GLEZOS in two corporate lawsuits that potentially involved tens of millions of dollars of losses for their respective clients. Although Mr. GLEZOS fought hard in court for his client, Mr. STEEP said the lawyer once patted him on the back after a tough day in court and volunteered that Mr. STEEP would win the case.
"George loved being an advocate and he loved the camaraderie of the bar. Even when he was fighting hard for his client he never forgot that we are all colleagues," Mr. STEEP said.
Mr. GLEZOS leaves his wife, Olwyn, and son Matthew and daughter Melanie.
