Unexpectedly on Saturday, October 6, 2018. Lindi was the beloved wife of Nathan Jacobson; mother to Kat (Katya); sister to Brenda; and aunt to many. Lindi was predeceased by her parents, Jakob and Myra.
Lindi was the kindest most selfless person one could meet. She was a loyal friend to so many and her home was always open to all, both two-and four-legged. She was always there to help people in any circumstance in a nonjudgmental and loving manner. As a human being she was simply magnificent.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in her memory to the Toronto Humane Society.
A Celebration of Life will be held in the near future and will be announced in this newspaper.

DONALD H CLIFF P.Eng (Retired)
September 28, 2018 After a full and wonderful life, Don passed away peacefully, at the age of 92, surrounded by loved ones.
Don was born in Dundas August 7, 1926. Predeceased by his wife Jean Hope (Walker) of 46 years; his father, David P. (Bud) Cliff; mother, Laura May (Myles); brother, William; and sister, Patricia (Paterson).
Survived by his partner of 15 years, Edna Stefaniuk; children, David Cliff (Patricia), Sheila Whitney (Hutty); and loving grandchildren, Danny Barrett, Robert Cliff and Nicole Barrett. He is also survived by his sister, Susan Lindbergh; sister-in-law, Ruth Cliff; and brother-in-law, Eric Paterson.
Don graduated from Queens University in 1949 with a degree in Electrical Engineering and worked for Ontario Hydro for 34 years.
His career took him to various regions throughout Ontario. His greatest accomplishment was bringing electricity to the remote village of Savant Lake where he was affectionately named the "Stompin' King of Savant Lake".
Prior to his post-secondary education and following his retirement, he worked at the Dominion Lightning Rod Company of Dundas, Ontario, founded in 1898 by his Great Grandfather and now in its 6th generation of family ownership and operation.
He was also an honorary citizen of Barbados, where he has traveled since 1973 and was acknowledged by the Prime Minister in early 2018 for his 80th visit to the island. He will be missed by his many friends there, as well as life-long friends from around the world that he met in Barbados.
Don was a true gentleman, a hard worker, a proud parent and grandfather (Papa), and a loving partner. He always had a positive attitude, saw the good in people and was loved and respected by all who knew him.
Cremation has taken place in West Kelowna and he will be interred at Grove Cemetery in Dundas at a private family gathering.
ROBERT WARBURTON COX Died on the 9th of October, 2018.
Born in Montreal to Gregory Warburton Cox and Edythe Crombie, he went to McGill, graduating in 1948. Following which, with his new bride Jessie Rankin Gunn, he went to Geneva, Switzerland, to embark on a career at the International Labour Office during which he travelled extensively around the world.
He returned to North America in 1972, first to New York where he taught at Columbia University, and then to Toronto where he was a professor of political science at York University. He was appointed a member of the Order of Canada in 2014 for his contributions to the field of international political economy.
In the course of his career he held visiting professorships at the Graduate Institute of International Studies in Geneva, the University of Denver, Laval University, Yale University, the University of Toronto, the Australian National University, the European University Institute in Florence, Italy, and the United Nations University in Tokyo. He was beloved by generations of students.
Much has been written about his work and his intellectual contribution to the field of international political economy. A universal comment resonates: the strength of his contribution came from an independence of mind that challenged accepted conceptions. He consistently emphasized the importance of understanding the cultural beliefs of others, creating a space for selfreflection and tolerance among cultures. His intellectual pursuits in no way diminished his pleasure in keeping good company, enjoying the good things in life, and having a good laugh.
He was predeceased by his wife of 58 years, Jessie Gunn, and his son-in-law Douglas Hahn. He is mourned by his partner Hongying Wang and her children Fan and Patrick Rosenau; by his daughters Susan and Janet Cox and his sons-in-law Massimo Formica and Michael Mackey; by his grandsons Fraser and Alex Hahn; and by his many colleagues and students.

ELIZABETH ANNE FINLEY (neé Westover)
October 2, 2018
Anne was born in Toronto on August 5, 1932 and after graduating from the Toronto Normal School teachers' college, taught kindergarten in Toronto and Thunder Bay.
She married Bill Finley in 1956 and after four children and five moves across three provinces, they settled in St.
Catharines in 1973. Bill and Anne were married for 60 years, and until Bill's death in 2016, they travelled extensively. Anne's favourite place in the world, though, was her Diamond Lake cottage, built by her own parents.
Our mother and grandmother never lost her love of education or her desire to help others live good lives.
While managing her busy preteens, teenagers and her equally busy husband, Anne earned a BA, graduating on the Dean's list from Brock University. And before, during and after those Brock years, she was an active member and contributor to many groups and causes: the Niagara Children's Centre, the Multiple Sclerosis Society, Sleeping Children Around the World, the Canadian Federation of University Women, several United Churches and their choirs, and too many other activities to track. She and Bill also hosted 26 Rotary Exchange students from around the world.
Anne's formal roles included two years as president of Maycourt St. Catharines, two years as secretary-treasurer to the Association of Maycourt clubs of Canada, and more than 25 years on the board of the Niagara Children's Centre School. In recognition of that deep community spirit, she was awarded a Rotary Club Paul Harris Fellowship, a City of St. Catharines Volunteer Award, and was made a Maycourt Honorary President.
"Anne-with-an-E" had a lifelong love of the Anne of Green Gables books, and her own positive yet practical attitude reflected that. She believed in generosity, social progress and personal responsibility, and even now, at her own request, is with the McMaster University Faculty of Science, helping educate students and scientists.
Anne leaves behind her four children, their spouses and nine grandchildren: Doug (Emily Arturi), Matthew and Sofia in Toronto; Heather (Malcolm Horne), Nathalie and Owen in Toronto; Don (Susan Finley), Robyn, Ryan and Stuart in Calgary; and Cal (Karen Finley), Sam and Kate in Water Valley, Alberta. She is also survived by her beloved sister and brother-inlaw, Ruth and Ray Fortune of Almonte, Ontario.
"Grammer" will be deeply missed, and we welcome all to a memorial service on Saturday, November 24 at 3:00 p.m. at First Grantham United Church, 415 Linwell Road, St. Catharines, followed by a reception in the Church hall. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the Niagara Chapter of Hope of the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
ROBERT ALEXANDER HAIG "Bob"
Died peacefully on Tuesday October 9, at the age of 92. He was born in Toronto on May 24, 1926.
He is survived by his daughters Margaret Haig (Yves Paradis), Pamela Haig Bartley (William), and Judith Haig-Tullio (Carmine) along with his grandchildren Daniel Paradis. Katherine Paradis, Alexander Bartley, Paige Tullio, and Christine Tullio and his cantankerous but loyal dog Gemini. He was predeceased by his wife of 62 years, Mary Haig (née Van Wyck), his daughter Barbara Haig, and granddaughter Nicola Tullio.
Bob trained as a paratrooper during World War II, and when the war ended, he attended the University of Toronto where earned his Bachelor's degree in Forestry. He then began an adventurous and successful career as a professional forester in the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources. He then transitioned to the Federal Department of Forestry which took him and his young and growing family from Parry Sound to Winnipeg, Ottawa and finally Sault Ste. Marie, where he ultimately became the Assistant Director of the Great Lakes Forest Research Centre.
Apart from his professional skills and achievements, he will be remembered for his active service as a Rotarian, and as a member of the United Church. He was an avid outdoorsman and sportsman.
He will be remembered by his family as a loving father and husband whose courage and quiet strength helped them all to carry a greater burden of trouble than could ever be carried without these qualities and, for that reason, was the guarantor and guardian of their happiness.
He will be remembered by everyone who knew him for his razor sharp wit (supported by his effortless recollection of passages from the King James Bible, Shakespeare, Tennyson, and Gilbert and Sullivan, all appropriate to any possible human situation), his generosity of spirit, his talent for friendship, his hospitality, his civility, his blend of judgment and charity, these are virtues of what used to known in earlier generations as a Christian gentleman.
Friends are invited to visit at the Arthur Funeral Home - Barton & Kiteley Chapel (492 Wellington St.
E. 705-759-2522) on Friday, October 12, 2018 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and on Saturday October 13, 2018 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Memorial service to be held at Central United Church on Saturday, October 13, 2018 at 12:30 p.m.
The Rev. Laurie Milito officiating.
Memorial contributions to Sick Kids Foundation, Nicola's Triathlon for Kids, or to Parkinson Canada would be greatly appreciated.
There is a passage from Shakespeare that might capture him: "As for his bounty, there was no winter to it."

JAMES HERBERT IRWIN Born August 27, 1959 in Bracebridge, died October 7, 2018 at home in Toronto.
James was the son of Dr. H.
J. "Luke" Irwin and Alice Joan Western of Orillia. Also known as "Bunt", James was a born raconteur, writer and adventurer at heart. He was a voracious reader, with a keen interest in history and politics, and gave away as many books as he "borrowed."
Above all he was a man who enjoyed life, knew what made him happy, and loved to laugh.
James attended high school at Saint Andrews College, Aurora and CJC in Lausanne Switzerland, where he made many lifelong friends. He graduated with a degree in political science from Queen's University, and became a reporter in his hometown of Orillia, before moving to Ottawa to become parliamentary assistant to a British Columbia based M.P.
In 1991 he set off to Singapore on a brief freelance assignment that led to a 13-year stint in Asia, and a career that spanned public relations and journalism and ultimately a position at the Energy Intelligence Group, reporting on global energy trends from Singapore and Washington D.C., and most recently in Toronto as EIG's Canada correspondent.
He counted himself supremely fortunate to have met his wife Trish (who fell for his wit and charm), while working in Hong Kong. Their sons Mack and Tom were born in Hong Kong and Singapore and were the heart and centre of his life.
James seized every opportunity to travel and explore. He sailed, canoed, skied, played tennis (winning a competition in Hong Kong for the fastest serve), softball and hockey, and when there was no ice, ball hockey. In H.K. he joined a winning dragon boat crew. He raced on a four-man team along the 100-km MacLehose Trail, hiked everywhere from the Blue Mountains of Australia, to Nepal and Sri Lanka, to Hadrian's Wall and finally the entirety of the Bruce Trail. However exotic his travels were, he always reserved as many weeks as possible every year for time at his favourite place, the cottage in Honey Harbour.
With the help of his family, Bunt managed to spend his last summer in the place he loved best.
Besides Trish, Mack and Tom, James leaves behind a great collection of family and close friends who can't believe he is gone: His siblings Pamela (Gord Brown), Deborah (Brian Harris), John Jared (Katie Fullerton), and Peter (Jennifer Fenwick); Amy Cody and her sisters; his cousin Mary Elizabeth and family; his nieces and nephews (Sarah, Alice, Olivia, Bridget, Henry, Andrew, Peter and Nicholas), his grand-nieces and nephews (Isaac, Abigale, Oscar, Simone, Loïc and Ella) and the Saywell and DeNure families. We intend to celebrate James' life as he would have wished - with a party at The Royal Canadian Yacht Club, 141 St. George Street, on November 3rd from 5-7 p.m.
ANNE SARAH JOSLIN

HOWARD LLOYD KELLY
1929 - 2018
On October 6, 2018, Howard completed his journey on this earth. Left to continue the voyage are his beloved wife, Lise Durivage; sons, Peter and John Kelly; stepsons, Marc and Francois Provost and their respective partners, Wendy Herron, John Kuharchuk, and Marie-Eve Lambert; and very much-loved grandchildren, Camille, John-Thomas, William and Xavier.
Howard was born and grew up in Huntingdon Quebec, a proud fifth generation Quebecer.
He was a graduate of Bishops University and The University of Western Ontario. His business career was spent in the Financial Services sector in Montreal. He spent many happy retirement years with Lise on the family property in Saint Anicet on the banks of his beloved Lac Saint Francois. His hobbies were curling, hunting, boating and most of all gardening, and his fascination with his computer and all that could be done with it. At Howard's request, no public memorial service will be held.
A private burial service will take place at the Kelly family grave site in Huntingdon at a later date. A further request is that no memorial gifts or donations be made but rather, anyone inclined to have done so, instead take a loved one or close friend out to a memorial meal to remember Howard and his life.
Howard's family are grateful for condolences by email. Please write: condolences@howardkelly.

RICHARD GEORGE MEECH
April 23, 1954 - September 29, 2018
There are no words that can capture the heartache of watching a starlit person slip through your fingers.
Richard George Meech was a humble, handsome, Harvardeducated man, full to the brim with heart, humour and grace.
Driven by passion for wisdom, for the inner spirit, and for the elevation of the soul, Richard was enraptured with the great mysteries of the universe, the wonder of its garden planet and the sacred nature of all beings.
Blue eyes twinkled when he woke and never stopped. In every moment and every encounter there was curiosity and joy. His mastery was the art of living.
Richard's colleagues couldn't wait to embark on new projects, new adventures with him. He led bike trips through Europe decades ago that participants are still talking about - how can one forget gleeful, madcap, toga-clad dips in the Trevi Fountain?
Three years ago, after many successful years as a cuttingedge producer/director of documentary films, Richard moved from Toronto to Salt Spring Island, B.C., with his loving partner of 24 years, Kathryn Jill Rigby.
They started new lives. Changed their priorities. Conceived passion projects that ranged from saving orcas to healing the planet. Between them, there were no limits to what could be accomplished.
But a routine prostate biopsy on Wednesday, September 26, resulted in urosepsis and within 48 hours, the light of many people's lives was extinguished.
Immediate family, Susan Meech and Craig Miller of Toronto; Sarah/ Sally Meech and Kurt Hanzlik, Dubai; Peter Meech, Los Angeles; and Nan Meech and Sava Tatic' in Prague are all in disbelief.
Adored nieces, nephews and in-laws, Maddy and Nathalie ' Hanzlik-Meech; Rade Meech-Tatic; Tom, Wendy, Kenzie, Olivia and Keegan Rigby of Toronto; Penny, Peter, Tom and Anna Lydon of Winchester, U.K.; Sally Rigby, Katie and Stephanie Donaldson of West Vancouver, B.C., will never forget their playful uncle and cherished brother-in-law.
Joan Stewart Rigby Clarke, 89, lived for laughter-filled visits with her treasured son-in-law. Richard's own beloved mother Carol Meech suddenly passed away just weeks ago on September 12th.
Decades-old friends are bereft.
New island friends are at a loss.
A fuller obituary will be published at a later date.
A Celebration of Richard's life will be held in Toronto in December.
Details will follow.
Condolences, photographs, memories may be forwarded to family members at email@example.com.
Born November 3, 1931, Kenneth was Annie and David Miskimmin's first 'Canadian baby'. His siblings, Mary (George Humphrey) and David (Gisela) were born in Belfast, and Silvia (Howard Duncan) and Barbara (Lou Regimbal) were yet to come. A patient and devoted family man, Kenneth took remarkable care of life-long love Elizabeth (1933-2014), children Robert (Diana Carnegie), Peter (Angela Cassiram) and Susanne (Allan Cole), and grandchildren, Madeleine and Liam, Esme and Niamh.
Kenneth grew up in the east end of Toronto and was industrious from an early age: gathering horse manure for his father's garden at five, and delivering groceries by bike at ten and blocks of ice by truck as a teen. Classmates became students when Kenneth taught at Danforth Tech just months after his own graduation.
He would go on to become Director of Technical Education at Woburn Collegiate Institute after completing two degrees at the University of Toronto.
Born in a do-it-yourself era, Ken could fix almost anything; a meticulous draftsman he was well versed in home renovation and cottage construction.
He was particularly adept at woodworking: cabinet making, carving, wood-burning - whatever he turned his hand to, really. A natural teacher, he would share his considerable knowledge with those around him, much of which will be passed along to the next generation.
Ken was a fine athlete who played baseball and basketball as a young man, and hockey well into his senior years - centering a line with his sons on the wings.
As a hockey coach, he enjoyed memorable trips to Europe with the high school team.
In fact, Ken and Betty travelled extensively around the world and would while away long summers on epic camping trips, before they eventually settled into their beloved cottage on Chandos Lake.
A fixture in his Scarborough neighbourhood since 1960, Ken would lend a hand or shoot the breeze and share a ready joke with old friends and new acquaintances alike. His appeal crossed generations, and it was not uncommon to find a young child at the door asking if Ken can come out and play.
Kenneth Miskimmin was a modest, humble and gentle man of great integrity who gave much and took nothing for granted. He was a considerate and dedicated friend to many. It is difficult to come to terms with a world without Ken. We are cast adrift by his loss, even as we are anchored by his wonderful legacy.
DR. DONALD BATES MONTGOMERY
"Monty " October 7, 1929 - September 23 , 2018
With much love and sadness, we announce the death of Dr. Donald Bates Montgomery, our dad, on September 23, 2018, peacefully after a cardiac event, two weeks before his 89th birthday.
Beloved husband for 51 years of Molly (deceased 2014). Loving father of Kathryn (Tom Cronin), Heather, and predeceased by dear son Andrew (Cheryl). Proud "Pop" to Scott, Andrew & Michael Cronin, Jaime & Elliot Procter, and Lauren & Madison Montgomery.
Son of the late Dr. R.C. (Cliff) and Margaret Montgomery. Big brother to his late sisters Mary and Jane (Trevor Eyton). Fondly remembered and missed by his extended de Haas, Eyton and Jackson families.
Dad (also known as "Monty") attended Deer Park, Brown and University of Toronto Schools, finishing high school at the age of 16. He was a graduate of the University of Toronto's Faculty of Medicine, class of 1954, and pursued a specialty in Internal Medicine. A bright, devoted and compassionate physician, he practiced at the Queensway General Hospital in Etobicoke for his entire career until his retirement in 1997. He was Chief of the Department of Internal Medicine at the Queensway for 16 of those years.
Dad enjoyed racquet sports (U of T varsity squash) and met Molly on the tennis court at the Toronto Lawn Tennis Club. Within eight months of meeting they became engaged, and the rest is history. They made a great team and enjoyed a wide and consistent group of lifelong friends. Dad was happiest spending time with Molly and family and friends in special places including Craigleith Ski Club, Kennisis Lake, and Lake of Bays.
Dad valued family, education, hard work, determination, and kindness, and together he and Mum instilled these core values in us kids. He was an avid skier, reader, and card player (bridge and cribbage were favourites) and enjoyed music. We will miss his unconditional love and support, his encouragement, and his quirky sense of humour. He was an original.
Our sincere thanks to Monica Byrne, Marlene Dixon and the caring staff at the Balmoral Club, who made a comfortable home for Dad in recent years.
A visitation will be held at the Morley Bedford Funeral Home in Toronto (159 Eglinton Ave W) on Monday, October 15, from 4-7 p.m. A funeral service to celebrate Monty's life will be held at Christ Church Deer Park (1570 Yonge St) on Tuesday, October 16, at 1 p.m., with a reception following at the church.
A private interment will occur at the St Ambrose's Anglican Cemetery in Baysville, Ontario at a later date.
Donations made in memory of Dad to the Toronto Symphony Orchestra or a hospital of your choice would be welcomed.

KENNETH SOUTAR MURPHY
Ken Murphy passed away at the Elisabeth Bruyère Hospital in Ottawa on September 27, 2018, at age 88. He is survived by his wife, Weida (Willows); his daughters, Andrea and her partner Ian Reid of Ottawa; Julia and her son Alexander of New Westminster, BC; and Kathy and her partner Vinod Patel of Toronto; his sister, Mae Bodley of Winnipeg; and his many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his Scottish immigrant parents, Robert S.
Murphy and Annie (Laird), as well as by his older brother, Roy.
Born in 1930 in Winnipeg, Ken attended Daniel McIntyre Collegiate and then United College (now part of the University of Winnipeg) (B.A. 1951). He studied cello with Peggie Sampson and at the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore.
He started his career in journalism in 1951 at the Winnipeg Free Press as a law courts reporter and music editor. Following this, he was the editor of the prairie edition of the CBC Times. Ken and Weida married in 1955.
Ken was a cellist in the Winnipeg Symphony and CBC Winnipeg orchestras.
He also performed in chamber music ensembles at the University of Manitoba. Ken recounted that being both a journalist and a musician meant that "sometimes after a concert, I would go to the police desk, still wearing my tuxedo."
In 1960 Ken, Weida, and baby Andrea moved to Montreal, where Ken worked as a writer, publicist, and radio producer for English-language CBC.
Julia was born in Montreal in 1961 and Kathy in 1964.
Ken was presented with an extraordinary opportunity in 1967: a position in public relations at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa, still under construction at the time. He went on to contribute to the creation of the NAC Orchestra and became its manager, and later Music Administrator of the NAC. The orchestra quickly gained an international reputation and toured North America, Europe, and the Soviet Union. Despite the challenges of coordinating travel for an orchestra, Ken was fascinated by Europe. Later in life, further travel in Europe (especially Paris) with family and friends was one of Ken's great joys.
A second extraordinary opportunity came in 1979 when Ken became assistant director of the music program at Banff Centre for the Arts. He believed deeply in the potential of young artists and worked tirelessly to support them in his various roles at Banff Centre. He brilliantly conceived of and ran the Banff International String Quartet Competition, which quickly became recognized as among the finest events of its kind in the world.
The 13th BISQC will be held next August. In the words of a colleague, "his combination of vision and tenacity helped launch the careers of many while also building an important fan base of committed classical music lovers."
Before his retirement in 1996 Ken and Weida built a home in Canmore, Alberta. They became active members of the community and enjoyed the beauty of the Rockies with friends and family, including Ken's beloved grandson Alexander, born in Calgary in 1999. In 2014 they returned to Ottawa.
His family will remember Ken for his many and eclectic enthusiasms, his great appreciation and encyclopedic knowledge of language, poetry, and music, and his love for all of us.
We would like to thank Dr. Sohil Rangwala, the staff of Bruyère Hospital, and the health care staff who provided such wonderful support to Ken at home.
A family memorial was held in Gatineau Park on October 3.

MARTIN ANTHONY O'NEILL
1951 - 2018
Our beloved Martin (known also as 'Tony' or 'Mao') departed for the Great Irish Pub in the Sky on October 4, 2018 from Vancouver.
Born in Coleraine, Northern Ireland April 25, 1951 to Mary Ann Law and John Patrick O'Neill, he spent his time as a young lad on the shores of Portstewart learning to love music, soccer, the sea and a good party. As a stellar athlete and fan, he was a co-founder and ex-captain of Portstewart F.C. soccer club before earning his BSc in Economics at London University and pursuing his passions in the business world.
Against the backdrop of the Troubles in his home country, he developed a fearlessness, energy and ambition to make a mark in the world, which he applied to a booming career as an incredible marketer and champion of change with international businesses starting in England and Germany, and serving as President/CEO of Braun, Rubbermaid, Bata Shoes, and Microcell (Fido) in Canada where he built a life with his family.
During a rapid rise as a charismatic leader, Martin always strove to understand and appreciate all levels of the organizations he worked for, especially on visits with the valuable employees on the factory floor. He also served as Cabinet member of United Way, Director of the Retail Council of Canada, Chapter Executive of YPO and was voted one of The World's Top 200 Young CEOs by World Economic Forum and Marketer of the Decade by AMA.
Martin lived with a fierce freedom and an appetite for fun that was contagious to all who crossed his path. Among his many wellloved traits, he was known for his unbeatable sense of humour, vibrant personality, and a dedication to living life to the fullest (a personal manifesto).
He loved to dance (at times, like nobody's watching, but there we were...), enjoy soccer games and laughs at the pub, cook for family and friends, watch the world series, take his kids fishing and skiing, walk any friendly dog, and travel with curiosity and appreciation for new people (and no shortage of spontaneous adventures and surprises his family still talk about today).
Happiest by the sea, his fondest times included his holidays in Spain, the south of France, Sparrow Lake, cruising Asia and Australia, the beaches of Cuba and Caribbean, North Carolina, and summers spent in beautiful Whistler. Martin was a man who showed incredible strength in the face of adversity right through his final days and was humbled by those who supported him along the journey. The last six years, he travelled the world making some of his best memories, leaving him at peace with nothing left on his list.
He gave the gift of great memories and wisdom to those he leaves behind, including his partner Pam Hardie (aka "Mighty Mouse") and their dear Whistler family. He inspires constant laughter and admiration from his children Erin (Chris) and Sean (Lisa) and grandson Brayden. He is survived by his older brother Terry with whom he enjoyed a great adventure exploring Southern Africa and he now joins his favourite Aunties Rita and Lily at the Pub up high. In the absence of a funeral service, share fond memories at memoriesofmao@ gmail.com or simply join us in raising a glass to toast Martin's story - a full life lived with gravitas.
With his spirit in mind, let's end with something important... Go Bills Go!
PETER MUIR PARTRIDGE
Passed away suddenly and unexpectedly at home on Thursday, October 4, 2018 at the age of 76. A loving husband to Janet (nee Burgoyne) for 50 years; beloved father to Peter W. (Poppy Gilliam) and John; cherished Poppa to Tobias, Chase and Daxx; and devoted brother to John (Jean) of Calgary and Susan of Kingston and their families. He will be fondly remembered by his sister-in-law, Harriet (John) Lehnen and their families. Peter is predeceased by his parents, John and Margaret; and brother-in-law, Henry Burgoyne.
He grew up in Kingston, Ontario and followed his love of music to London, England, to further his education. He studied at the Royal Academy of Music, was the Music Master of Westminster School and was also assistant to the Organist at Westminster Abbey from 1961 - 1964. While there he played the Battle Hymn of the Republic at a memorial service for John F.
Kennedy that was broadcast to every country in the world by the BBC. He also played at the Royal Wedding of Princess Alexandra and Angus Ogilvy. Peter returned to Canada in 1964 to accept the Director of Music position at Ridley College in St. Catharines, where he taught for 5 years. In February 1970 he accepted a position as a stock broker with AE Ames, a predecessor company of RBC Dominion Securities Inc.
where he has worked for 48 years, serving as both a VicePresident and Portfolio Manager, and was looking forward to his 50th anniversary with the firm.
Deeply involved in serving and supporting his local community, Peter was the Director of Music and Organist from 1970-97 at St.
Paul St. United Church (Silver Spire), he founded the first choir at Brock University called the Brockenspiels in the mid 1960's, he was Past President of the Ontario Choral Federation, Past President of the St. Catharines Symphony, a Board Member of Community Concerts, the current treasurer of the Canadian International Organ Competition, and past Chairman of the Royal Canadian College of Organists. Peter had a radio show for 10 years on CKTB called an Invitation to Good Music.
He served 2 terms as a Brock University Trustee (2004 - 2010) and was named a Trustee Emeritus in 2016. When Rodman Hall was taken over by Brock in 2003 Peter was named the Chairman of the Rodman Hall Advisory Board, a position he still held. He has conducted the annual downtown Christmas Civic Carol Concert since its inception 27 years ago. In 2012 he co-chaired Major Giving for the United Way Campaign with his son, Pete, and has supported the Brock Wrestling and Brock Men's Basketball programs for many years. The men's basketball team dressing room was renamed the Partridge Family Locker Room after the family's contribution allowed for it to be completely renovated in 2016. In 2013 Peter played an integral role as the Fundraising Chairman of the new Performing Arts Centre in downtown St. Catharines. He and Janet made a transformational gift of $1 million dollars and the largest of the four stunning performance venues proudly displays the name "Partridge Hall". In 2017 he donated a practice organ at Westminster Abbey and subsequently was invited by Prince Charles to a dinner at Buckingham Palace to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Galleries at Westminster Abbey.
Above all else, he had an unbelievable zest for life, he loved his family and friends, coming into work everyday, the summer cottage, classical music and opera, world travel, his 5:15am daily workouts at the YMCA, fine food, wine and cars, laughter and he loved his city, St. Catharines, and passionately wanted to make it a better place.

On-Line Guest Book http://www.georgedartefuneralhome.com DR. PATTY RIGBY 1955 2018 When death comes, like the hungry bear in autumn; when death comes and takes all the bright coins from his purse to buy me, and snaps the purse shut; ...
When death comes, I want to step through the door full of curiosity, wondering: what is it going to be like, that cottage of darkness?
And therefore I look upon everything as a brotherhood and a sisterhood, and I look upon time as no more than an idea, and I consider eternity as another possibility.
and I think of each life as a flower, as common as a field daisy, and as singular, and each name a comfortable music in the mouth, tending, as all music does, toward silence, and each body a lion of courage, and something precious to the earth.
...When it's over, I don't want to wonder If I have made of my life something particular, and real...
I don't want to end up simply having visited this world.
(Mary Oliver - When Death Comes) Dr. Patty Rigby, in her sixty-fourth year, entered that cottage of darkness in the early hours of October 7, 2018. She did not simply visit this world. She embraced it in both her personal and professional lives, and in doing so made a difference to the lives of so many.
Patty, who held both a master's and a doctorate in Occupational Therapy and Health Science, joined the Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy in 1994 at the University of Toronto where she worked until her retirement in 2017. Her research was critical in the development and advancement of one of the most widely recognized OT practice models, the Person-Environment-Occupation (PEO) model, which recognizes the importance of environment as a contributor to occupational performance and health. Patty also contributed to a ground-breaking shift in the OT lens by promoting the development of children's "play," uncovering the value in children's playfulness, which influenced the focus and development of treatment programs and evaluation tools. She was a much-loved and admired teacher in her field, and published numerous peer-reviewed articles and book chapters in the course of her career. In June of this year Patty was awarded the 2018 Life Membership Award of Occupational Therapists in recognition of her outstanding contribution to the profession in research, practice and teaching.
Patty met her spouse, Dr. John Wedge, while both were working at the University Hospital in Saskatoon in the 1980's. In 1988, their careers took them to Toronto together where they have made their home ever since. Together with John, she travelled the world on missions both professional and personal.
Theirs was an enviable loving relationship, each respecting the professional demands of the other yet always protective of their time together, whether it was spent on the golf course, at their home in Savannah or their annual summer retreat to Cape Breton. Their time golfing on the May long weekend was the last carefree time they were able to share together.
For Patty, family was first. She played a central role in the lives of her nieces and nephews (who knew her lovingly as "AP"), instigating family gatherings that created memories and bonds that will resonate through their lives. She steadfastly maintained close contact with all of her siblings and every niece and nephew, where ever they happened to be. When her beloved brother Murray died, Patty stepped in to give his children, Jordan, Sierra, and Aidan the love and support they needed. Living as she did in Toronto, she was close to the family of Dr. Charlotte Wedge, her spouse, Tom and their children, Ian, Georgia, and Patrick Nelson, to whom she was like a second mother.
Patty was known within the circle of family and friends, fondly and reverentially, as "Patty Perfect". And perfect she was in so many, many ways; unfailingly cheerful, positive, generous, and loving. As the diplomatic middle child of five children, Patty was a unifying force all her life. She transformed for the better every room she entered and every person she encountered. In the words of Mary Oliver, Patty made of her life "something particular...and real."
Patty leaves behind family members in Saskatoon, Calgary, Toronto, Australia, and many places in British Columbia (including her father, Eric; siblings, Gwen Beaton, Janet Rigby and Jeffrey Rigby), too many to otherwise name here; and an array of friends, colleagues, and students, all of whom have very heavy hearts as they come to terms with their enormous loss. Many assisted Patty and John on Patty's final voyage, but special recognition and thanks must go to Dr. Charlotte Wedge whose tireless support, both medical and personal, so profoundly eased her journey.
The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Patty Rigby Scholarship in the Graduate Department of Rehabilitation Sciences at the University of Toronto; or the Palliative Care Unit of Michael Garron Hospital in Toronto.
A private interment ceremony will be held in Toronto at a later date.
PAUL IOTI STEFOW April 29, 1942 - October 10, 2018 A private soul, happiest at work, with his wife or his grandsons, Paul Ioti Stefow exited this world suddenly the morning of October 10, 2018 in the arms of Evelyn Stefov, his wife of 50 years.
Professional engineer, lover of history, purveyor of dry wit and sarcasm, consummate professional, Paul was a man for whom two things mattered most: family and work. Paul was born in Macedonia, Greece to Draganí and Dimitris Stefou in 1942, the youngest of 4 sons following Antoni, Christo and Niko. His character was shaped by being forced to leave Greece for Romania in 1948 as a child, during the Greek Civil War, along with his brother Niko, whom he loved dearly. Romania provided young Paul an opportunity to study, perfect his beautiful penmanship, and cultivate a love of literature and the classics - which, later in life, turned into a love for spy novels and the daily news.
Paul received a degree in mechanical engineering in Brasov, Romania, as a top student, and then retrained, alongside his wife, at the University of Toronto where he received a Master of Engineering.
Despite his early years and migrations, Paul felt fiercely at home only in Canada. His few retreats among family included treasured holidays at the cottage in Muskoka and the condo in Hallandale, Florida. Unbeatable at backgammon and chess, his hobbies also included long neighbourhood walks and the peacefulness and satisfaction of riding the lawnmower at the cottage. His community of friends, for whom he felt quiet loyalty and love, were regularly subject to his straight-talk, humour and facetiousness.
During his long and successful career, he rose from an entry-level engineer to Senior Vice-President - holding roles with Caterpillar, then the Urban Transportation Development Corporation - his first foray into light rail mass transit and city-building. He then moved onto Spar Aerospace, Alcatel and finally Hatch. At Hatch, he helped build Toronto's Sheppard Subway Extension, then the York University Line 1 extension - "not bad for a poor immigrant," as he liked to say. His refusal to retire led him to a third subway project, barely begun, but a symbol of his love and commitment to his work. He was a self-made man who always put 100 per cent into the projects to which he devoted his life, including the Canadian contribution to the International Space Station, robotics, and numerous works of public transit.
Paul is survived by his wife, Evelyn; his daughter, Dana Stefov (Sébastien Maillette); and his two grandsons, Alexis and Sacha Stefov Maillette who he loved deeply and who lovingly called him Dedo.
Paul's funeral will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, October 16th at York Cemetery, 160 Beecroft Road, Toronto. A viewing will be held on Monday, October 15th from 4:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. at the same address.

DR. WILLIAM ELWOOD TOSSELL
Died peacefully on October 10, 2018. The son of Beth (Shannon) and Frank Tossell, Bill was born in 1926 on a heritage farm in Glanbrook Township, Ont. He graduated from the Ontario Agricultural College before earning a Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin. Over a long career at the University of Guelph, he was Chair of Crop Science and the first Dean of Research. Bill was deeply involved in work to improve the food supply in developing countries, serving as Chair of the International Centre for Tropical Agriculture headquartered in Cali, Colombia. He also held major posts at centres sponsored by the World Bank and the UN, where he led the establishment of Bioversity International, devoted to collecting and storing plant genetic resources in gene banks for future use by all humankind.

Bill was predeceased by his brother, Harold (Margorie) of Binbrook, and was a much-loved brotherin-law of Jean's sisters, Marnie Sillers (Don), Bonnie McFarlane (Hugh) and Diana Woolley (Max).
He was especially fond of his OAC '47 friends and of his cottage neighbours in Port Elgin. A true citizen of the world, Bill was a champion of scientific values and liberal social ideals. He was also a fierce defender of those he loved, and was never happier than when he was with his family.
