O'GRADY, M. James " Jim"
Born: July 25, 1936, Timmins, Ontario
It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden death of the beloved husband of Helen Alexiade O'GRADY and cherished father of James (Jamey) O'GRADY. His devotion to our small family was surpassed only by his generous spirit which will always be with us. Jim was loved and respected as a brother by Colleen (Lawrence DUMVILLE), Faye (Don KUIAK) and Ken (Marlene BINNIE). He was pre-deceased by his parents Mary REDMOND and Harold and by his brother Terry. He was loved as a brother-in-law by Maria and Tasso KARKAZIS, Ariadne and Howard GRIBBLE and Anne NOTOF and as an uncle to many from Ontario, Alberta, British Columbia and California. Born in Timmins, Ontario in 1936, Jim grew up in Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec. He was both a star athlete and an outstanding student in his youth, winning the All-Ontario Midget AAA Championship with the Noranda Toilers in 1951-52. He enjoyed full scholarships to Queen's University, Arts '57 and Law '61 and was awarded a Viscount Bennett Scholarship to The Harvard Law School (LL.M. '63). Before starting his legal practice, Jim was the Special Assistant to the Solicitor General of Canada, the Honourable Larry Pennel. For 46 years he practiced law in Ottawa with Solway, Wright, Houston, Greenberg, O'Grady and Morin and O'Grady and Associate. At the time of his death he was practicing with the firm of Burke-Robertson. In 1998 he was elected a Fellow of The American College of Trial Lawyers. His career as a lawyer was characterized by the highest standards of professionalism, respect for those in need and unwavering dedication to his chosen profession. His service to the community included the office of President of the Consumer's Association of Canada and a member of the Executive Committee of the International Organization of Consumer's Unions. He was a member of the International Ice Hockey Federation Board of Arbitration. Jim's love of hockey was legendary including over 15 years as a coach in the Nepean Minor Hockey Association and a lifetime of preparation for the National Hockey League. Friends are invited to visit at the Central Chapel of Hulse, Playfair and McGarry, 315 McLeod Street, Ottawa on Thursday, May 22, 2008, from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. Funeral Mass will be held at Notre Dame Cathedral, Sussex at St. Patrick on Friday, May 23, 2008 at 10: 30 a.m. Interment to follow at Pinecrest Cemetery.

COWARD, Alfred Reginald
Mississauga, Ontario - Alfred Reginald COWARD, died peacefully on June 10, 2008, at the Credit Valley Hospital after a brief illness. Alf was born in Sydney, Nova Scotia to Arthur and Lillian COWARD. Being exposed to music and piano at an early age ignited a fire within and ultimately, music became his life's passion. Alf was initially drawn to medicine and attended St. Francis Xavier, Dalhousie Universities, and The University to Toronto to pursue pre-med training. Ultimately his heart drew him back to music, where he worked on perfecting jazz piano playing and composing for the balance of his life. By 1950 Alf had played as a member of a many jazz orchestras, and shortly thereafter struck out on his own leading the Alf Coward Band. In 1955 Canadian Broadcasting Corporation aired the first variety show in the Maritimes on Television; 'The Alf Coward Show', featuring the Alf Coward Band. Meanwhile, during this time, what began as a two week 'gig' at Georges Spaghetti House eventually extended to 7 years due to a growing fan base. Alf lived (Mississauga) and worked in the Toronto area for the rest of his life. In the late 1960's he married and had two boys. He spent the 1970's onward teaching classical and jazz piano as well as voice from his Mississauga studio. He continued to perform locally in television commercials, and movies. Surviving are his sons, Brent and Shem COWARD as well as his granddaughter Peyton. The memorial services will be held at 2: 00 p.m. Friday, June 13 at Bloor Street United Church with the Reverend Martha TER KUILE officiating. Memorials may be made on behalf of Alfred COWARD to The Canadian Cancer Society, or 1-888-939-3333
