PETER D. COOK January 12, 1939 May 30, 2018
A fighter to the end, Peter passed peacefully in his sleep on May 30, 2018 at home with his loving wife, Barbara at his side. Predeceased by his father, Gunnard, and mother, Ellen (nee Kelly). Loving father to his two sons, Geoffrey and Brent and his daughter, Tara (Darin). Cherished Grandpa and Tickle-Monster of Madison, Emily, Samantha and Zoe.
Peter was born in Winnipeg in 1939 and lived in Montreal and Toronto for the majority of his adult life. He obtained his BSc at the University of Manitoba and then became a certified Chartered Accountant while working at KPMG. After an exciting career with Air Canada and other large corporations, Peter freed the entrepreneur from within and founded several small businesses, including the "Raquetterie" and "Montreal Homeowners Association" in Montreal and, most notably, "Seniors for Seniors" in 1985 and "Seniors for Business" after moving to Toronto. Peter lectured and taught at various colleges and universities, including McGill, U of T and Centennial College and was a published author on the subject of entrepreneurship, "Start Your Own Business, the Canadian Entrepreneurs Guide". He also made many TV, Radio and print media appearances on a variety of business topics and social issues.
He appeared before the Senate of Canada in 2012 to bring the many difficulties experienced by far too many senior citizens in Canada to national attention and was presented the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medal for community service for his efforts.
Possessing an unrivalled dry wit and work ethic, Peter loved life and had a tremendous sense of adventure. He and Barbara enjoyed many "once in a lifetime trips" which included Africa, Costa Rica, India, Thailand and China among many others. Peter was a member of the Toronto Lawn Tennis Club for close to 40 years where he played tennis and squash. He also played Golf at the Thornhill Golf and Country Club, a sport he picked up in his 50's and, like most things, became quite good at it. He cherished all of his friends from childhood onwards.
We have lost a true original.
Please raise a glass of Scotch in his memory. J&B will be fine.
A celebration of his life will be held at a later date.

Father Tim was born and raised in the village of Hastings beside the Trent River and was ordained as a priest at The Cathedral of Saint Peter-in-Chains, Peterborough on May 19, 1951. Then, at the age of 25, Fr. Tim began his service as a parish priest at St Joseph's Catholic Church in Bracebridge, and in his vocation, served in many parishes in the Peterborough diocese.
He played a significant role in the formation of faith of many children and youth in the Catholic school system. He was a loved priest and pastor by the many congregations that he served, and his quick wit and sense of humour were enjoyed by all. He was appointed parish priest of St.
Michael's, Cobourg in 1970. In 1972, he was granted a year's sabbatical and he joined his friends Christine and David Stewart, who were working as volunteers at an orphans' village in Honduras.
Shortly after their return to Cobourg in 1973, Tim, Christine and David founded the Help Honduras Foundation. It was later renamed Horizons of Friendship after programs had expanded to neighboring countries.

Born November 19, 1927 in Toronto, Ontario to Ernest and Ruby Coulter. Beloved husband to Joyce (Brown) who has been by his side since they were married 64 years ago. Survived by his four children Susan (Bob), Butch (Vessela), Doug (Charlotte), and John (Natalie). Remembered as a loving grandfather by David, Erin (Kris), Quincy, Casey, Evan, Gordon, Amber, Nora, and greatgrandfather to Everly.
Bruce was an amazing man who lived a charmed life that touched many. He was a gentleman, accomplished athlete, teacher, husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and mentor to thousands of students. His most important accomplishments include: two-way player for the Montreal Alouettes (1948-57), head Coach of McGill University's football team (1958-61), Bishop's University's head football coach and athletics director (1962-1990), and inductee into the CFL hall of Fame with the class of 1997.
His Coaching record at Bishop's speaks for itself standing at 13780-2, CIAUs most successful coach upon retirement. Apart from the accolades, it was his commitment to his family, players, students and university life that exemplifies his legacy.
In 1991 the Bishop's University football stadium was renamed Coulter field in his honour and in 1995 the Vanier Cup established an award in his name to be given to the most outstanding defensive/ offensive player. Lover of music, especially blues, an accomplished ornithologist, and pretty good dancer, all will have their own unique memory of Bruce; however, his greatest legacy will be his commitment to his family and friends. A hero, icon, and legend he will be deeply missed and always remembered.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be given to the Coulter Fund (in support of Bishop's Gaiters athletics) - Bishop's University, 2600 College St., Sherbrooke, QC, Canada, J1M 1Z7 or the MAB-Mackay Rehabilitation Centre (http://www.mabmackay.ca) would be appreciated.

MAXIME VOISARD DUCHARME
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Maxime Voisard Ducharme ("Popa Max"), who peacefully passed away at home on June 3, 2018, at 87 years of age. Max was a beloved father to his two children, Jason Ducharme and Roxane Graham; proud grandfather of Darcy, Gavin, Rachael, Michael and Sarah; and great-grandfather to Venice and Vienna.
Max was born in Sudbury in 1931 and moved to Toronto to pursue his love of design. He graduated from the Ontario College of Art in 1958, earning an Eaton design scholarship. He joined Phillips Electronics in 1959 and quickly assumed the role of Chief of Design. In 1960 Max designed the "Bean Radio" which was a commercial success, it won international awards, and was one of the last Canadian-designed and manufactured transistor radios.
It is difficult to describe the type of man that Max was - he was one of a kind. He was someone to count on, and he showed us all how to love, laugh, innovate, be entrepreneurial, survive in the woods, and never conform to popular wisdoms. He would lecture anyone who'd listen about design, while at the same time teaching about love and respect. He was an accomplished musician; playing the piano, guitar, autoharp, clarinet, tambourine, harmonica, kazoo and vocals - often all at the same time. He had many lifelong friends. He was truly an example of how to live life to its fullest.
In accordance with Max's wishes, a private family interment will take place in Sudbury at a later date. Max will be lovingly remembered and deeply missed.
We love you Max.

Michael held a special spot in his heart for BC's Peace River country where he was raised. After graduating from the University of British Columbia with a BSc in Bio-Resource Engineering, he made Vancouver his home and worked with BC Hydro and the Greater Vancouver Regional District before joining the forest industry. In his 29 years with Canfor, Michael's efforts had wide reaching impacts. From developing and implementing Environment Management Systems for Canfor's sawmills to his extensive work with provincial and federal governments to develop effective, yet practical, environmental and energy policies and regulations, Michael's presence made a positive difference. Michael was a trusted mentor to people within Canfor, industry, and government, sharing his knowledge with many over the years.
He will be forever missed by his wife, Ann; children, Robbie and Rennie; parents, Bob and Bunty; brothers, Peter and Paul (Anna); extended family, many friends, and colleagues.

Stops would be made at several other newspapers as he eventually climbed the ranks to executive vice-president and chief operating officer (North America) of Thomson Newspapers Corp.
A long-time passion of Kerry was painting and after being sidetracked by the newspaper business for 35 years, he retired and started his own studio, largely focusing on landscapes from Ontario's Northland.
While the newspaper business had brought Kerry to the Toronto area, his heart had remained firmly tied to the North. He visited the Temagami area annually and called the region "almost never pretty but always beautiful."
He painted at his Mississauga-based art studio for 20 years and his work is hanging in homes and businesses in Canada and other countries, including the U.S. and Australia.
Kerry valued time with his family as it brought him lots of joy and entertainment. He was regularly seen at hockey rinks, soccer fields, baseball diamonds, dance recitals and music concerts.

GLEN ALEXANDER PATTERSON September 23, 1921 May 15, 2018
Glen Alexander Patterson, 96, died May 15th with family at his side. He is survived by his sister, Jean Edwards, of Toronto; son, Dennis, (Evelyn) Bruce, George, Jessica and Alexander; son Bruce, (Ilse) Kate, Rose, Lena; and daughter, Sheila, (Brian) Lewis, Isobel, Sally; and 5 great-grandchildren.
His was a life well lived.
He was born in Calgary to a musical and gardening family. It was on a boys band trip to play at the Haywood Bandstand in the West End that Glen first laid eyes on Vancouver. It was love at first sight, and his passion for it never diminished. He graduated in Commerce from U of A and then served with the Royal Canadian Air Force training pilots in the Commonwealth Air Training Plan.
After the war, he and his high school sweetheart, Isobel Farr, eloped to Vancouver. When Glen got a job in the Kananaskis, lodging was scarce so they took over an abandoned prospector's cabin and while Glen cruised timber, Isobel fended off the bears. What bliss! Back to Vancouver, Isobel worked to support Glen when he took a second degree in Forestry graduating from UBC in 1947. Jobs were scarce then and they were thrilled when Glen was hired by Canadian Forest Products in the Nimpkish Valley on Vancouver Island as a fire warden and later as a forester.
Living in isolation in remote Woss Camp, they raised 3 children.
Home was an un-insulated, wood stove heated bunkhouse, sensibly sited on gravel.
Ever the gardener, Glen packed swamp soil on his back to establish a garden that was their pride and joy. His work talents were recognized and he was promoted to management at Grande Prairie, Alberta and in the last years of his career to his beloved Vancouver as VP Canfor.
His retirement was not retiring.
He threw himself at exotic travel often in the pursuit of rare plants.
He created two outstanding gardens, one at Pilot House Rd.
in West Vancouver and his piece de resistance in Coal Harbour, a celebrated rooftop garden that defied gardening norms. Glen had a zeal for life and his enthusiasm was unmeasured. If you asked after Glen, his reply would invariably be "Never better".
Among his many passions; nature, travel, rare plants, the mountains, politics, the Internet, photography, fitness, investing, conifers, his Iphone, pussycats, collecting Indigenous West Coast Art, and his grandchildren. He adored his final home at Tapestry, UBC. He is remembered for his courage and his steadfast commitment to his independence (how about 5 times per week personal training sessions until right before his death!).
His curiosity and intellect were prodigious and his many informed opinions were staunchly defended. He was serially social, though his black cloud was the tragic loss of Isobel in 1971.
Our Dad, Brother, Grandpa, GreatGrandpa, Father-in-law, Friend, Go well to the Great Beyond.
DEANNA ELIZABETH PERSCHBACHER (nee Wood) October 17, 1940 - June 6, 2018

Devoted mother to Kristina and Susanne and son-in-law, Mark. Cherished grandmother to Joakim, Xavier, Anya, and Daphne. Survived by brother, Doug; and predeceased by sister, Gloria; and brother, Gordon.
Deanna graduated from the University of Guelph with her Honours degree in Home Economics. Later, she pursued continued studies at the University of Toronto Mississauga to teach French. She was a dedicated and enthusiastic teacher who inspired students with creative and imaginative programming.
Four years teaching at the Canadian Airforce Base in Zweibrucken, Germany with Marvin fostered innumerable travel adventures and longterm friendships. During her retirement she travelled extensively with Marvin and pursued many interests including bridge, golf, art and gardening. She will be missed by the many friends with whom she shared these passions.
Deanna was an inspiration. As a mother and grandmother she was committed to creating fun, enrichment and tradition. She was a gracious and welcoming presence to everyone she met and loved entertaining friends and family. She added beauty and balance with her personal touch.
We will miss her strength and grace.

PHYLLIS IRENE PHELAN (nee Britten) January 22, 1922, Toronto June 3, 2018, Vancouver
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our mother, Phyllis Phelan, at the age of 96. She was a warm, smart, loving, and entirely selfless woman. She came of age during World War II and married Claude (d. 2005), an exploration mining engineer. They travelled the world together, expanding their horizons, living in Western Canada, the U.S., the West Indies, South America, North Africa, Ethiopia and Switzerland.
She was adventurous, refined and glamorous but always guided by her strong personal priorities of kindness and respect for others.
Regardless of where she lived she bravely stood up for the underdog by volunteering in the community, from founding a school in Cochabamba, Bolivia to distributing food from the tarmac in Addis Abba, Ethiopia.
Phyllis loved reading, crossword puzzles and history. With no time for pretense or ego, Phyllis could be counted on to give expert, practical advice in any situation (often with humour, and whether solicited or not). She was insightful, kind and accepting of others from all walks of life and made special connections with doctors, nurses, and caregivers in her later years.
Mummy was a role model to all of us left behind and will be so missed by her three daughters, who hope to become an extension of her grace and generosity: Nancy (Jim Shea), Deborah (Charles Stoody) and Kerry (Louis O'Dea); her grandchildren, James, Kelley (d. 2015) and Connor Shea, Kathleen (Mike Wylie), Marianne and Alison Stoody (Fajer Abu Zayed), Ellen, Ciara, Molly and James O'Dea; and three greatgranddaughters, Madeline, Amelia, and Summer. She is also survived by sister, Lorraine Potter, Toronto; and sister-in-law, Patricia Rudd, Toronto.
Despite the painful loss she leaves in her wake precious memories of a life well lived and her rich legacy will endure. She taught us all how to live and even how to die.
We are grateful for the care, love and support from the Kiwanis Manor staff and residents. Her passing was gratefully supervised with comfort and care by Dr.
Sugar and the Home Care Nurses of West Vancouver.
A private memorial will be held for family.

DIANA FRANCIS MARY WATSON October 25, 1931 May 25, 2018
Diana Francis Mary (Foote) Watson, 86, passed away suddenly at her home, surrounded by the garden and woods she loved, on May 25, 2018.
Mary was born in Markham, Ontario, to Ann (Bradley) and Samuel Foote, and grew up along the banks of the Don River. An active girl who loved exploring the outdoors, she often returned home with twigs and leaves tangled in her curls to the chagrin of her mother, who was trying to raise a lady. Mary became an accomplished artist, skilled at drawing and painting. Her images of flowers, woodlands and animals were beautifully rendered in water-colour, pastels and pencil. She later earned two degrees in Art and Art History from York University.
During her years working at Connaught labs in Toronto, and later through personal studies of her favourite hummingbird moths and ornithology, she always pushed her intellectual and artistic boundaries.
Mary and Ted Watson married in 1957 in Penetanguishene. The couple embarked on life travelling aboard their boat named "The Seven Bones" through the Trent Severn waterways and Georgian Bay. Following the birth of their sons, they decided to settle in King Township, on the property that became known as "Hemlock Hill." This was the home where Mary raised her sons, established extensive perennial gardens, entertained, and became a dear friend to many who surrounded her. She was truly a lady.
She will be greatly missed by her sister, Joyce (Foote) Fearnside; her sons, James (Marilyn) Watson and Ian (Michelle) Watson; her grandchildren, Bethany, Laura, Jordan, Samantha, Max, and Simone; her nieces, Susan Scholefield (Fearnside), Beth Hayes (Fearnside), and Melanie Foote; and her longtime friend and neighbour, Elaine. Mary was predeceased by her brother, Samuel Beverly Foote; husband, George Edward (Ted) Watson; and nephew, Mark Foote.
A gathering to celebrate Mary's life will be held on Sunday, June 10th, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. at her home. In lieu of flowers, donations to Parkinson Canada would be greatly appreciated.
CHRISTOPHER G. C. WILSON
Died May 28, 2018 at Strong Memorial Hospital, Rochester, NY after a short illness. He was born in Ottawa in 1949 and grew up in Montreal and Ottawa. He attended Glendon College and Ryerson University where he graduated with a degree in Photographic Arts majoring in Film. He was a man of dedication and compassion who used his creative talents and communication skills for the betterment of the ill and disadvantaged. At a young age, he led a battle between low income tenants and their landlord which led to the formation of one of the first non-profit housing co-ops in Toronto. He went on to produce award-winning documentaries and worked as an Assistant Director for TV and feature films. He returned to the issue of affordable housing as a co-op housing developer, and then headed the drive to create the Toronto Islands Residential Trust, becoming its first Manager.
He led national government relations campaigns for the Cooperative Housing Federation of Canada. His advocacy firm Civica Inc. served many health charities and co-operatives. He was a member of the multistakeholder committee whose groundbreaking achievement was the creation of Canada's Air Quality Management System. Christopher was a humanitarian who gave voluntary time to Project Life War Orphans Program and to the Global Nuclear Awareness Program. In his professional and humanitarian work, he had the knack for persuading those with opposing views to find what they had in common. He was a humble and caring friend within his family and community.
He was predeceased by his parents, W.A. and Marion Wilson of Ottawa. He is survived by his wife, Deborah Wilson; son, Samuel; sisters, Diana, Alexandra (Paul-Andre Baril), Frederica; brother, Mark; Deborah's mother, Mary Wolfe; her sisters, Ruth and Naomi; brother, Lewis; as well as nine nieces and nephews.
