NUFFIELD, Prof. Emeritus Edward Wilfrid "Les"
Born April 13, 1914 in Gretna, Manitoba. Passed away June 10, 2006, in Vancouver after a short illness. Predeceased by his first wife, Islay. Survived by his second wife, Basilisa, daughters Lee and Joan, son Jim, and grandchildren Rosemary, Patrick and Ashley. A founding member of the Mineralogical Association of Canada, Les held various positions in Geology at the University of Toronto from 1943 to 1980, including lecturer, full professor, and Chair of the Department (1964 to 1972). He was Associate Dean of Arts and Science at U. of T. from 1962 to 1964. Les was responsible for the introduction of a new curriculum in geology, established new research and teaching labs, and his book on the Powder Method in Crystallography became a standard textbook throughout the world. Les was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada (1962), awarded U. of T.'s Sesquicentennial Long Service Honour Award (1977), and received the Mineralogical Association of Canada's Berry Medal in 1988. His endowment established the Edward W. Nuffield Graduate Travel Fellowship in 2002. After retirement, Les wrote several books of popular Canadian history and exploration, including one adopted by the Vancouver School Board. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Edward W. Nuffield Graduate Travel Fellowship at the University of Toronto.

NUFRIO, Debbie Roberta (née PENNY)
Born August 20, 1957. Lost her battle with lung cancer, on April 4, 2006. Left heartbroken by her passing are her husband Michael and their 3 dogs and 1 cat, and Michael's family, the Penny family, and all the people lucky enough to have known her or been her friend. A Service will be held at the Salvation Army, West Hill Citadel, 305 Morrish Rd., Scarborough, on Thursday, April 13, 2006 at 3 p.m. Donations to Lung Cancer Canada in lieu of flowers please. The best way to describe Debbie was that she was like a ray of sunshine in the first glorious days of spring. She was a puppy's tongue upon your face. She was that gentle breeze upon your skin. She was also the most compassionate, caring and generous person I've ever met. She was our Deb. We will miss her forever.
