It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our fabulous husband, Dad and Grandpa, John Anthony. He will be hugely missed by his beloved wife Gerry; his wonderful children, Peter (Louise), Rob (Alison), Janet (Ollie); and grandchildren, Damon and Calvin, Stuart and Ben, Isabel and Ella.
John was a graduate of University of Toronto, Faculty of Dentistry (5T8). He established a successful dental practice where he enjoyed his work and patients for over 40 years. John taught at the U of T Faculty of Dentistry and held several positions at the Royal College of Dental Surgeons. He was President of the Anderson Study Club and a member of the International College of Dentists.
Dad's greatest love was his beautiful cottage in Muskoka, most of which he built himself. His happiest moments were spending time there with family and friends, a legacy he has passed on to the next generation.
When it was too cold to be in Muskoka, Gerry planned exciting trips. Together they experienced adventure, food and wine everywhere they went.
John's motto was "Work hard/ Play hard"; he did both with boundless energy and positive thinking.

BERTRAM HENRY "HARRY" BARRETT
October 10, 1925 November 30, 2018
Harry passed away in his home in Oakville, Ontario on the morning of November 30, 2018. At 93, Harry had lived an incredibly full life, relishing his roles as a loving father, grandfather, brother, and uncle; distinguished World War II veteran; plumber and all-around handyman; celebrated former mayor of Oakville; and lifelong protector of public space and municipal heritage.
Harry was born in the upstairs bedroom of his parents' modest home on Trafalgar Road and left us a few kilometres away in the house that he built with his beloved wife Jackie. Although he fought overseas and travelled the world, Harry's greatest accomplishments were in his hometown. While serving as the chairman of the Oakville Planning Board in the 1960s and as the 42nd mayor of Oakville from 1973 to 1985, Harry instituted a town policy to buy up parkland for public use. In the early 1980s, he helped found the Old Oakville Heritage Conservation District and was a proud member of the Oakville Historical Society and the Oakville Heritage Committee. In 2012, the town honoured his civic leadership by creating the Harry Barrett Waterfront Parks System and in 2016 he was awarded a Lieutenant Governor's Award by the National Trust for Canada.
Harry is survived by his daughters Carol and Laurie; his grandsons Chris and Dan; his niece Anne; his great-nephew Ben; his great-niece Amy; and his great-great niece Michaela. He was predeceased by his wife Jackie; his brother Jack; and his sister-in-law Emma; and his son-in-law Roger.
There will be a visitation at Kopriva Taylor Community Funeral Home, 64 Lakeshore Road West, Oakville (one block East of Kerr Street) from 1 - 4 p.m.
on Sunday, December 2nd. The funeral service will take place at 1 p.m. on Monday, December 3rd, at St. John's United Church, 262 Randall St, Oakville. In lieu of flowers, donations are welcome to the Scott Mission or a charity of choice. Online condolences may be left at http://www.koprivataylor.com
CYRIL S. BELSHAW
Born Waddington, New Zealand, December 3, 1921; died Vancouver, Canada, November 20, 2018.
We are saddened to share the news of Cyril's death just before his 97th birthday. He was a kind and generous man who taught his family to celebrate diversity and adventure, kindness and shared joy. He delighted in good food, travel, politics, gardening, music and his great passion, tennis. He will be mourned by daughter Diana, partner Thomas; granddaughter Eleanor, Liam and their son Arthur Cyril; son Adrian, partner Loreen; granddaughter Juniper, partner Jess; by his extended family Claudia and Kevin and friends around the world.
Cyril was a colonial administrator and economist in the South Pacific before completing his PhD in social anthropology at the London School of Economics. During extensive field work in New Guinea, Fiji and Northern BC, he was supported, as in life, by his wife, Betty. His appointment to the Department of Anthropology and Sociology at UBC began a long career as an international academic, observer, and writer. He continued a family tradition of service as a founding member of CUSO, as Director of a Regional Training Centre for UN Fellows in Vancouver, and with UNESCO, the UN Bureau of Social Affairs, and the International Social Science Council. He served as President of the International Union of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences, as editor of Current Anthropology, was an Honorary Life Member of the Royal Anthropological Institute and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada.
Cyril was an unrepentant thinker and writer. His publications ranged from academic studies (The Indians of British Columbia, Under the Ivi Tree, Changing Melanesia) to philosophical and political analyses of the world around him (Anatomy of a University, Towers Besieged: The Dilemma of the Creative University, The Sorcerer's Apprentice: An Anthropology of Public Policy) . Towards the end of his life, Cyril imagined a better world for his granddaughters and their children in Creating Our Destiny, based on the essay with which he won the Utopian World Championship in 2005.
There will be no memorial service as Cyril asked to be remembered around a dinner table with good friends, excellent food and a glass of wine. Donations in his memory may be made to Doctors Without Borders, the UNHCR (United Nations Refugee Agency) or organisations that support the homeless.

DELSWORTH GODFREY HARNISH
1954 - 2018 Del died on November 26, 2018, surrounded by his adoring daughters, Lauren and Shaundra (Manish); and his devoted wife, Liz Scheid. Beloved by his parents, Delsworth and Charlotte Harnish; and his siblings, David (Cheryl), Jim (Michelle), Nancy, Raymond (Lynda), Heather (Dean), Charlotte and Diane (John). Dear brother-inlaw to Richard, Margaret, Susan and Ray. Loving grandpa to Noah. Fond uncle to his nieces and nephews.
Del earned his Bachelor's and Master's degrees from Queen's University, and his Ph.D. at McMaster University, where he joined the Faculty of Health Sciences in 1994. He began his career as a virologist, then became renowned for his brilliance and leadership in educational innovation. Del was key in developing the extremely popular, inquiry-based Bachelor of Health Sciences Honours program and was the program's first assistant dean, a position he held for 15 years. As vice-dean in the faculty since 2015, he was both collaborative and effective in setting up unique inter-disciplinary programs such as the Integrated Biomedical Engineering and Health Sciences program and the Health Leadership Academy with the DeGroote School of Business.
Del's genius brought a unique view to academia. Complexity sciences and chaos theory became a language for him to describe the world and how it is changing. He saw the need for difference and creativity in bringing about change, and resisted the urge to reward people for repeatedly doing the same things. He was restless and needed to experiment, tinker and wonder aloud about what might be. In a world that privileges knowledge and certainty, he was provocative, always challenging.
This provocation, knowing that it was in service of truth and of building our lives with intention and integrity, inspired many to bring forth their unique qualities into the world.
The outpouring of affection and appreciation for Del during his short illness and since his passing has been remarkable. Del's kindness and passion for life, work, food, wine, fun and stirring things up will be missed deeply by his colleagues, friends and family. Del leaves a legacy in the programs that he developed and in the many students whom he inspired to innovate and disrupt systems forever.
Visitation will be held on Monday December 3, 2018 from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Dodsworth and Brown Funeral Home-Ancaster Chapel, 378 Wilson Street East, Ancaster.
Tributes will be spoken at 7 p.m.
A memorial service will be held at McMaster University at a later date.
Memorial contributions may be made to a scholarship in Del's honour at alumni.mcmaster.ca/ delharnish or to the Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre Foundation.

SHIRLEY LEON (nee Burns, formerly Omstead)
Passed away peacefully on Tuesday, November 27, 2018 in Toronto at the age of 89 after an 11 year battle with dementia. Dearly loved by her late husbands Jack Leon and Duane Omstead. Loving mother to Cherie (Richard), Dana (Helga) and Shawn (Janet) and predeceased by her young son, Brian. Loving stepmother to John (Lisa), Brian (Cathy) and Peggy (Frank). Proud Nana of Stephen, Christopher, Michael, Jacqueline, Jordan, Dave, Amanda, Meredith, Jack, Mark, Michael, Matthew, Vanessa, Lucy, Patrick, Johnny, Shannon, Paul and Barry. Survived by her sister Pat Nicholson and predeceased by her brother Jerry Burns.
All of us will miss her immensely.
Shirley was born on April 13, 1929 in Windsor. She was gifted with an operatic voice, which she used in her early 20's to join the Detroit Civic Light opera. She never lost her love for her singing Irish classics like Danny Boy and Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral all her life and would often entertain family and friends whenever she had the chance. Shirley spent much of her early adult life in Wheatley, Ontario where she met and married Duane Omstead when she was 27 years old. She then split her time between Wheatley and Ft. Lauderdale, Florida through her 30's and 40's. Shirley opened up her home in Florida to everyone and loved to entertain.
While in Florida, she developed her passion for cruising and golf, which she enjoyed throughout her life and passed down both joys to her entire family.
Following Duane's passing, her second life began with Jack Leon in 1982 in Toronto. In 1985, Jack and Shirley bought a cottage on Lake Simcoe in Sutton, Ontario across from the Briars Golf Course. She spent every summer enjoying her family and friends on Hedge Road. Many great family Thanksgivings were enjoyed at the "19th Hole" in Sutton, Ontario and many countless cherished family memories were made. Most of all, Shirley lived for her entire family and was keenly interested in her children and grandchildren's success in whatever they pursued.
She had tremendous pride in everyone in her family. She had more memorable sayings than anyone could ever count and we will miss them all. We want to thank her extremely devoted caregivers who have been her loving companions. We are forever grateful for their care. A very big thank you to the wonderful staff at the Meighen Manor for their loving care during Shirley's six-year stay.
Friends may call at Lambton Golf and Country Club (100 Scarlett Road, Toronto) for a visitation followed by a Celebration of Life on Tuesday, December 4th from 5 - 8 p.m. with speeches and song to commence at 5:30 p.m.

BRIAN MCKENZIE MALCOLM
November 26, 1940 November 15, 2018 Born in Brantford, Ontario and longtime resident of Toronto, Brian McKenzie Malcolm passed away November 15th, surrounded by his three sons, Bruce, Cameron and Duncan; and loving wife, Marnie (Perigoe) Malcolm. Son to Ewart and Irene (Bowden) Malcolm; and older brother to Blair, Marney (Horton), Rod and Scott Malcolm. Brian and Marnie married in Agincourt, Ontario on May 20, 1967, and Brian graduated from Queen's University with a Bachelor of Arts in 1971. Brian's role with Trust Companies Victoria and Grey, and National Trust, took his young family to Kingston, Cobourg, Orangeville, Port Credit and North Bay; finally settling in Toronto. Through school, business, church, Ski Patrol and Rotary, he formed lasting friendships, many of which continued to this day.
In 1989, Brian left the Trust business and joined the Presbyterian Seminary, Knox College, as the Administrator at the University of Toronto campus. He particularly enjoyed working with students and the fledgling Ecumenical Chaplaincy at the University of Toronto. He continued on the Chaplaincy Board and the Board of Evangel Hall in Toronto for many years following retirement.
Whether it was through his support of the churches he attended, or other organizations his family was involved with, his was a life of service.
Brian loved being with family at the cottage on Balsam Lake.
He reveled in watching his sons; beloved daughters-in-law (Jennifer, Courtney and Julia); and grandchildren (Paige, Graeme, Whitaker, Celeste, Lila, Colin and Deirdre) grow and love the outdoors as he did.
Music was a lifelong passion for Brian. Although his clarinet took him on many adventures as a young man, it was choral music that inspired him throughout his life. A long-time member of the Mississauga Choral Society, he also sang in church choirs as part of his expression of faith.
A Celebration of Life will be held in Eglinton St. George's United Church, 35 Lytton Boulevard, Toronto on Friday, December 7th, at 1:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Ecumenical Chaplaincy at the University of Toronto (ecut.ca), Evangel Hall Mission (evangelhall.ca) or Eglinton St. Georges United Church (esgunited.org). Condolences, photographs and memories may be forwarded through www.
November 26, 2018 It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing, on November 26, 2018, of our beloved husband, father and grandfather, the Honourable Louis Marceau, in his home in Québec city, surrounded by his family. Husband to late Céline Michaud (1969); he leaves behind his wife, Suzanne Duquette; and his children, Danièle (Yves Fradet), Marie-Odile (Leung Chow), Patrice (Susan Fan) and Nathalie (Gilles Boucher); his grandchildren, Chloe (FrancoisXavier Picard Rens), Max, Jasmine (Thomas Bernard), Emilie and Abigail; Yves's children, Vincent (Hélène Marchand), Amélie (Michel Couture), Olivier (MarieÈve Bergeron) and their children.
He also leaves behind his sisters, Elizabeth (Yvon Gauthier) and Marguerite (late Marc Dorion); his brothers, Picard (Lilia Chaloux), Pierre (Danielle Roy) and Michel (Paulette Girard); his predeceased siblings, Gilles (Charlotte Couture), Claude (GeorgetteTremblay), Patrice, Paul, Marie (late Louis Lemieux), Vincent (Danielle Gagnon), André (Ann Lacourcière) and Robert (Thérèse Marier); his brothers-in-law, Jean Duquette (Doris Thomas) and Marc Michaud (Louisa Goodyear); his sisters-inlaw, Martine (Pierre Lachance), Mélanie (Michel Ste-Marie) and Chantale; his godchildren, Pierre Duquette, Renée et Marie Marceau; as well as many nephews and nieces.
Born in Québec city in 1927, Louis Marceau was a scholar, a humanist, a man of profound integrity. He studied law at Laval University, followed by a Doctorat d'État at La Sorbonne in Paris, completed with honors. Soon after joining the faculty of law at Laval University, he became its youngest Dean in 1964 and went on to head a lasting reform of the faculty. In 1969, he was named by the Québec legislature Ombudsman of Quebec, the first provincial ombudsman and gave the institution its foundations. In 1976, he was appointed judge at the Federal Court, Trial Division, and in 1982, at the Federal Court of Appeal, until his retirement in 2000. He infused his decisions with a mastery of language, a cartesian logic faithful to his training as a civiliste, a deep sense of human rights and equality, and a humble respect of traditions and institutions. At the end of his distinguished career, he resumed an old passion that he approached with his legendary discipline and mastery: golf.
With an unwavering faith in God, Louis Marceau lived a life of selfless devotion to the public service, to his family and friends who will miss his intellect, strength of character, grace and kindness.

RICHARD GEORGE MEECH
April 23, 1954 - September 29, 2018
Richard Meech's life was full of laughter, love, a wide-ranging curiosity and the search for wisdom.
Sadly, Richard died unexpectedly of urosepsis after a prostate biopsy.
We will celebrate Richard's life on Tuesday, December 18th, at the Great Hall, Hart House, University of Toronto. The ceremony will begin at 1:30 p.m. (Doors open at 1 p.m.)
Richard was the beloved son of Carol Crockett Meech (d. 2018) and Richard C. Meech, Q.C. (d. 2007). He was named after his grandfather Richard George Meech, Q.C. (d. 1990).
Richard will always be remembered by his loving partner of 24 years, Jill Rigby; his close siblings Susan, Peter, Sarah (Sally) and Nan; his extended family; his friends and the many others whom he connected with along the way.
Richard was educated at Blythwood Public School, Upper Canada College, Queen's, Harvard, the Sorbonne and the Institut d'Etudes Politiques de Paris (as a Rotary International Scholar). An avid reader, intrepid traveller and attentive listener, he never stopped learning.
Working with Butterfield & Robinson unleashed in Richard a love of adventure and a fascination with foreign cultures. His adventures continued around the world with his creative collaborator Michael Grant in their Emmy Award-winning Millennium: Tribal Wisdom and the Modern World, a series of ten one-hour films seen by over 70 million viewers worldwide.
His other film and television production work included 72 Hours: True Crime, the Gemini-nominated film In the Shadow of a Saint: The Ken Wiwa Story, and several episodes of both Exhibit A: Secrets of Forensic Science and National Geographic's 13-part series Doctors Without Borders: Life in the Field.
In 2010, Richard wrote, directed and produced Ayahuasca: Vine of the Soul, a documentary reflecting his strong intuition that a radical shift in consciousness is necessary for truly comprehending the natural world.
Three years ago, Richard and Jill moved from Toronto to Salt Spring Island, B.C. Amid the natural beauty of the island, they planned exciting new projects and adventures.
Recently Richard had begun attending courses in the Philosophy, Cosmology and Consciousness department of the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) in San Francisco. He hoped to teach there one day and to create a film or series in collaboration with Sean Kelly and others at CIIS. He was excited to have found a group dedicated to exploring the same set of ideas that had been inspiring him for his entire adult life.
Richard sought a deeper understanding of the human condition in the modern world and felt a strong desire to contribute to the ongoing transformation of our culture. What he might have done next in his life journey, we can only imagine.
The original obituary for Richard, containing additional information, was published on October 13, 2018.
Condolences, photographs, or memories may be forwarded to family members at email@example.com.
The Richard G. Meech Anima Mundi Scholarship Fund will provide financial assistance to Canadian students in the department of Philosophy, Cosmology and Consciousness (PCC) at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS). The PCC department aims to shape the leadership necessary for profound, progressive transformation of social institutions and individual consciousness.

DR. PETER MARTIN OLLEY
(Born April 14, 1937) passed away on Sunday, November 25, 2018 in Sapporo, Japan after a lengthy illness.
Peter was born in Manchester, England, the eldest of four boys (Peter, Philip, David and Steven).
Peter often recalled with great pleasure his time growing up with his brothers and particularly his early schooling at Lymm Grammar School. In 1960 he graduated from the University of London with a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Science and became a member of the Royal College of Surgeons. He married Mary Elizabeth Olley (nee Sharpe) in May 1958 and welcomed his first child, Deborah in 1962. His son Stuart followed in 1965. Peter immigrated with his young family to Canada in 1967 and welcomed two more daughters, Sarah in 1970 and Rebecca in 1972.
Peter had a long and distinguished career at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Ontario starting as a Research Fellow in the Division of Cardiology and ultimately becoming the Director of Cardiovascular Research and a Professor of the Research Institute at SickKids. Peter was most proud of his research work leading to the development of an innovative treatment for newborn infants born with a typically fatal heart defect. This treatment resulted in the survival of countless otherwise terminally ill children.
In 1986, Peter re-located to Edmonton, Alberta where he became Professor and Chair of the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Alberta Hospital, a position he held until 1996.
Following his retirement Peter moved to Sapporo, Japan with his second wife Setsuko Ogawa where he enjoyed travel, reading and watching his beloved Manchester United Football Club.
Peter is survived by his wife Setsuko, his children and stepchildren, his brothers, Mary and grandchildren.
Peter's awards, professional designations and charitable associations are too great to list but to us he was our much loved husband, father, brother, grandfather and we will miss him.
A service was held in Sapporo, Japan.
HOWARD EARLE PETCH
Ph.D., FRSC, LLD, OBC May 12, 1925 - November 26, 2018 Howard Petch was born to Thomas Earle and Edith May (Painter) in Scarborough Township, York County, Ontario less than ten miles from the farms settled in the 1790s and 1830s by his German-American and British ancestors. His three siblings are still living: William James in British Columbia, Naureen Elizabeth Brodie and Donald John in Ontario. Howard died in Victoria, which he considered Canada's most livable and beautiful city.
WWII ended six months after Howard completed his training as a navigatorair bomber in the RCAF. He used his veteran's credits to attend the Veterans Session initiated by McMaster University in January 1946 and graduated in 1949 (BSc in Chemistry and Physics). Howard pursued graduate studies at McMaster (MSc 1950) and the University of British Columbia (PhD 1952). After postdoctoral research at McMaster and Cambridge University, where he held a Rutherford Memorial Fellowship, he joined the faculty at McMaster. In addition to his professorial appointments, he was Chair of the Department of Metallurgical Engineering (1957-1961), Director of Research (1961-1963) and Principal of Hamilton College (1963-1967) at McMaster. He moved to the University of Waterloo in 1967 where he served as Vice President Academic, Acting President and President (pro tem).
While a student at McMaster, Howard met, fell in love with and married the first of two remarkable women with each of whom he would spend many great years. Rosalind (Lindy) June Hulet, also a student and a RCAF veteran, and he married in the summer of 1949. Their first child, Stephen Howard (Sue Fraser) was born in 1952 in Vancouver and is now retired, after a career as a playwright, and lives in Vancouver. Patricia (Tricia) Louise Cook was born in 1954 in Hamilton and lives in Burlington where she raised three gifted children: Michael David (Vanessa Lamb), Jennifer Diane Edith van Hardenberg (Michael van Hardenberg) and Katherine Rosalind (Christine Taylor) are actively pursuing careers in Melbourne, San Francisco and Montreal, respectively. Sadly, their third child Suzanne died a few days after in 1959, and Rosalind died in January 1975, bringing great grief to all the family.
On January 1, 1975, Howard took on the duties of President and Vice Chancellor of the University of Victoria (UVic). While maintaining its reputation for excellent teaching, he proceeded to lead it on a program of growth and development, which laid the foundation for UVic to become, as it is today, one of Canada's outstanding universities. He also played a wider provincial role by promoting greater access, particularly for rural young people, to postsecondary education, by advocating for science, engineering and high tech industry and in fostering working relations among the Province's postsecondary institutions.
While attending a reception at UVic, he met a vivacious young woman, Linda Jean Schlechte, who was lecturing in the Faculty of Education. They married in 1976, and their son, Jeremy Earle, was born in Victoria in 1977. When he retired in 1990, Howard took on major responsibility for running the household and raising Jeremy, so Linda could devote her time to developing her management consulting business. She was remarkably successful and had business clients as far east as Halifax and as far north as Inuvik. Now living in Toronto, Jeremy (Suzanne Turner) is involved in teaching, research and management in health and health policy and raising two very active children, Clara born in 2014 and Henry born in 2017.
Howard's interests and contributions extended well beyond academe through service on countless committees, task forces, commissions and governing bodies from the municipal to the national level. He served on the Science Council of Canada, Defense Research Board, British Columbia Arts Council, Science and Technology Centre, Pickering Airport Commission, Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope, Asia Pacific Foundation, Victoria Foundation, Premier's Summit on the Economy (BC), Senior's Advisory Council of BC, and Business and Industrial Development Commission of Victoria. His service has been recognized through the award of numerous honors including Fellowship in the Royal Society of Canada, several honorary degrees (McMaster, Waterloo, UBC, Simon Fraser, and UVic), Centennial Medal, Confederation Commemorative Medal, Queen's Jubilee Medal, Honorary Citizen of Victoria, and the Order of British Columbia.
His love for nature, especially bird watching and gardening, brought him serenity and great joy to the end.
A celebration of Howard's life will be held on Sunday, December 16, at 3:00 p.m. at University of Victoria's Cadboro Commons, 3800 Finnerty Rd., Victoria (use Parking Lot 5 off Sinclair Rd.).
DAVID EVAN POWELL
It is with great sadness that the Powell family announces the death of their dearly loved youngest sibling, David. Born in Port Arthur in 1962, David was adored by his four sisters, Mary, Joan, Martha, and Catherine. His only brother, Peter, was in equal measures his mentor, his friend, and his rival (mainly in chess. See below).
David was a happy and wellloved child who attended St.
Andrew's School and Bishop Gallagher Senior Elementary School before earning admission to Upper Canada College. During these formative years, David grew into a fierce and loyal friend and forged many life-long relationships. He also honed his love of live music with frequent nocturnal (read: unsanctioned) outings to downtown music venues. Following high school in Toronto, Dave explored his academic options at Fanshawe College, London and at Queen's University, Kingston. It was at Queen's that Dave became friends with Gord Downey and the boys of The Tragically Hip. Impressed by his affable personality, attention to detail, and confident intelligence, Dave was named the band's tour manager, a job at which he excelled for the next nine years. For years following, Dave entertained his family and friends with hilarious tales of life on the road. There were very few big cities in North America or Europe that Dave couldn't recall in detail, listing off names of bars and restaurants and recounting various hijinks involving the boys.
Dave was a true student of music.
From his early years at Thunder Bay's Avila Centre to the end of his days, he loved to spend time listening to and making music.
Whether he was buying used guitars, teaching guitar technique, or mastering the Theremin, Dave always had a deep understanding of music, and a half-dozen fine guitars close at hand. Returning to Thunder Bay after his life with The Hip, Dave enjoyed regular garage band gigs at his home with his many musical pals.
In addition to music, Dave had many interests. He inherited his father's mechanical ineptitude although he had a closet brimming with time-worn tools and he was entirely comfortable with wellused and unreliable cars. He was an avid radio hound, tuning in at all hours of the night to old serials and current talk shows, following the airwaves from the far east to the deep south. Dave was a weak but exciting chess player, which suited his brother; the two were equally matched. Dave was also an avid reader and an energetic debater. And whether you agreed with him or not, everyone was certain on one point: Dave had an opinion on every subject known to man.
In sum, Dave was a bright, funny, loyal, argumentative, loving, and beautiful brother.
He will be deeply missed by Peter, Mary (Bob Segworth), Joan (Dino DiGiuseppe), Martha, and Catherine. Dave loved all his nieces and nephews, and he had a special bond with Pete's daughter, Claire. They found comfort near the bounds of norm, as artists will do, and they recognized the love in that kinship. Uncle Boog, as they called him, will be sorely missed by Charlie and Claire Powell; Kate and Jane Leadbeater; Max, Martha, and Sam DiGiuseppe; and Brent McIntosh. David was predeceased by his parents, Evan and Audrey Powell.
A service to remember David will be held on Friday, December 7, 2018 at Sargent & Son Funeral Home beginning at 12:30 p.m.
As expressions of sympathy, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or The Thunder Bay & District Humane Society. On-line condolences may be made at http://www.sargentandson.com.
It matters not how a man dies, but how he lives. The act of dying is not of importance, it lasts so short a time.
DAVID LEONARD REA

Andrew's College and remained a stalwart supporter and volunteer to the end of his life. An accomplished artist and chef, these were more than simple hobbies, David based his love of travel and his time at his Georgian Bay cottage around these activities. Sharp dresser, model train enthusiast, student of Roman history, classical music aficionado, all describe our dear father. We will miss his unique energy and joie de vivre.
Service at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, December 5, 2018 at Grace Church on-the-Hill, 300 Lonsdale Road, Toronto.
Reception to follow. Donations may be made to Belmont House or the Movement Disorders Clinic at Toronto Western Hospital.

He is deeply mourned by his wife Lainey, his children Ralph Rozema, Patricia Rozema and Gary Rozema and their spouses, Emmy and Nid, his grandchildren Jacoba, Evelyn (Evy), Kiran John (KJ), Tina, Tammy and great-grandchildren Shauna and Mitchell, as well as brothers and sisters-in-law, friends and many nieces and nephews.
As a prominent developer and philanthropist in his community, he touched the lives of many. He was predeceased by his first wife and the mother of his children, Jacoba Beredina Vos Rozema in 1992 who was also loved by many.
Our hearts are broken.

PAULINE MIRIAM SCOTT
November 4, 1923 November 24, 2018 Her family is saddened to announce the passing of Pauline Miriam Scott (née Hill) on November 24, 2018 in Ottawa, the loving matriarch of a large, extended family.
Predeceased in 2014 by her husband of 68 years, Charles F. Scott QC, she will be deeply missed by her three sons, Charles (Catherine), Andrew (Erika) and Paul; seven grandchildren, Charles (Laura), Heather Davidson (Adam) and Jennifer Wellman (Michael), Elizabeth (Andrew Womak), Katherine (Bradley Boehringer), Caroline and Christine Scott; and nine great-grandchildren, Alexander, Sabrina and Orion Scott, Jake and Bailey Davidson, Olivia, Riley and Matthew Wellman and Ellis Boehringer.
Her grandchildren and her greatgrandchildren were her delights and she took pleasure in gardening with, and reading to, them.
Pauline also leaves her brother, Frederick W. Hill Jr. (Elaine).
Pauline was born in Toronto, the eldest child of Frederick W.
Hill and Miriam (Lord) Hill. She attended primary and secondary school in Forest Hill Village (Toronto) and became a student at Victoria College in the University of Toronto, where, as a first year student, she met her fourth-year husband-to-be, Charles F. Scott of Ottawa, at a North House dance.
After graduation in 1945 with her BA and in 1946 with a Diploma in Child Studies, she married and, somewhat to the consternation of her mother, moved to Ottawa, where her husband returned to practice law.
In Ottawa, she became engaged with the University Women's Club and the Maycourt organizations and served on the national executives of both. She had many wonderful friends in Ottawa and elsewhere and, in later years, travelled and cruised with her husband and their friends to Europe, China and the Caribbean.
She was an enthusiastic and talented gardener, a passion which she has passed to some of her grandchildren. Mum also enjoyed many wonderful summers at the family cottage on Big Rideau Lake where, for 60 years, she supervised three generations of children and grandchildren learning to swim in the cove and to water ski, sail and boat from the dock. After a wonderful time at the cottage and many visits there from the family this past summer, Pauline celebrated an early 95th birthday party at the cottage with a large number of children, grandchildren, greatgrandchildren and their spouses at Thanksgiving.
We are left with wonderful memories of a gracious and loving lady.
A family funeral service has been held and Pauline will be buried with her husband in Beechwood Cemetery.
DR. SPENCER ALAN TIGHE
April 9, 1957 November 26, 2018 It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Spencer Alan Tighe on November 26, 2018 after a short battle with a rare cancer.

He spent a number of years in private practice and psychopharmacology research and consulting before returning to his true passion for community-based mental health and spent over a decade with ACTT (Assertive Community Treatment Team) at Pinecrest-Queensway Community Health Centre. He was committed to enhancing the quality of care for people with complex needs, and proudly served as a steering committee member and mentor for the Collaborative Mental Health Network (CMHN) of the Ontario College of Family Physicians.
Spencer's kindness, compassion, wisdom, and wit touched the lives of everyone around him. With a brilliant mind and wicked sense of humour, Spencer had an inspiring ability to always see and appreciate the beauty in our complex world.
