RICHARD A. GRANGE
1944 - 2018
Richard A. Grange passed away on Wednesday, October 10 at the Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria after a three-month battle with cancer.
Since being diagnosed on July 27, his wife Jody and his entire family, Brian (Jessie), Lindsay, Kimberly (Nathan), Ian, and grandchildren Ethan and Abigayle have been by his side.
Rick left an indelible impression on those around him, touching the lives of many in Toronto, Vancouver, Victoria, and his home of the past 20 years, Masset, Haida Gwaii.
Rick lived his life unapologetically, with determination and grit, and by setting - and achieving - goals that others often thought unreachable. Those who knew him also knew how quietly generous he was and how he lived to provide for his family and those around him.
Always thinking, planning and building, Rick established his first company in 1970, a contract trucking company named Cart-Rite Cartage Limited. In 1972, he and business partner Brian Legge founded Intercon Security Limited, which operated in both Canada and the United States and grew to be the largest Canadian owned security company at the time. Together, he and Brian went on to build The West Coast Fishing Club, with lodges situated on remote Langara Island and Port Louis and which recently celebrated its 30th year.
There, in Haida Gwaii, Rick found his ultimate home. From the beginning he was passionate about supporting the community and hiring locally. His determination to set higher standards of service in the sport-fishing industry resulted in Masset becoming a transportation hub for all lodge operators and made a lasting impact on the regional economy. He also focused his efforts on ensuring the sustainability of resources and developing large-scale salmon enhancement programs through the Friends of the Yakoun River Society and Friends of the Marble River Society.
Rick built a home and hobby farm in Masset on Tow Hill Road, of which he was extremely proud. Some of his fondest memories involved sharing his dinner table with friends or sitting for hours by the trout pond with Jody, with other family and friends, or on his own.
The family wishes to thank the team of doctors, nurses and health care aides of the eigth floor of the Royal Jubilee Hospital, Patient Care Centre, led by Dr Saltman and Dr Earle, and the BC Cancer Agency. Rick was appreciative of the care he received, as are we. We would also like to thank the friends and loved ones who travelled to visit him in hospital. Rick was always at his best surrounded by those he cared about, and he lived out his last days no differently.
A celebration of Rick's life will be held on November 17, 2018 at the Pacific Gateway Hotel in Richmond, BC from 4:00 - 7:30 p.m. Please contact (604) 233-9232 for more information. A second celebration of life will be held in Haida Gwaii in the spring.
Passed away peacefully on Wednesday, October 10, 2018 in hospital in Oakville, Ontario.
Brian was born in Montreal on April 29, 1939 to Bill and Olive (Street) Hayman. He was married to his high school sweetheart Sue (Sheppard) Hayman until her death in 1982. He had a loving relationship with his children, Brent (deceased 2012), Debbie and Scott and their spouses, Cori, Ted and Brenda. Brian was always so proud of his grandchildren, Luke, Andrea, David, Jackson and Jenna.
Brian will also be missed by sister-in-law and brother-inlaw, Angela (Roo) and Dave Schaffelburg.
A memorial service will be held at St. Jude's Anglican Church, 160 William St, Oakville on Sunday, October 21st at 7 p.m. Condolences can be left at the AfterCare website (http://www.aftercare.org/ obituaries/Brian-Hayman).

THE HONOURABLE DONALD STOVEL MACDONALD P.C., C.C., LL.D.
Donald has died. Ever unassuming, he died with the least of fuss, and with characteristic dignity. Donald leaves his adoring wife Adrian. He was predeceased by his first wife Ruth Hutchison Macdonald who died in 1987.
He will be greatly missed by his four daughters, Leigh with son Angus, Nikki with Ned Jackson and daughters, Sarah and Meghan, Althea with children Lucas, Cecil; and Sydney and Sonja with Paul Shaker and son Salim (Sam), his Lang stepchildren Maria (predeceased), Timothy, Gregory (Zuzana Glatzova), Andrew (Jennifer Fritz), Elisabeth (Paul Amirault), Amanda (Geoff Beattie) and Adrian (Ashley Taylor), and with their children, will miss his gentle humour and wry take on the world. He was predeceased by his sister Janet Macdonald Fox and her husband Edmund Fox.
Donald and Ruth shared a life filled with curiosity, travel and learning.
Together they raised a family of four girls, began a political career, and travelled the world. He had a generous heart, and kind spirit. This was evident in his love for Adrian, his wife for 30 years, who lit up his life and face daily with her mere presence. Their romance - which never faded - set a high bar for all who know them.
He will be remembered for his quick wit and fine sense of humour. An impeccable dresser - with the finest collection of silk bow ties - he could also be found in khakis and rubber boots planting hundreds of trees every spring. Dogs and children loved him, and this elegant man who consorted with presidents and prime ministers was never happier than in his reading chair with Lester B. Cat upon his knee.
He found his greatest joy in serving his country. First elected to the House of Commons in 1962 as the Member of Parliament for Rosedale, he served for 16 years through the Liberal governments of both Prime Ministers Lester B. Pearson and Pierre Trudeau. He held many portfolios: Government House Leader, Minister of Defence, Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources, and Minister of Finance.
Upon leaving politics in 1978, he returned to McCarthy and McCarthy but quickly became subsumed in public life again. As he noted, "when your Prime Minister asks, you serve your country." In 1982, he accepted Prime Minister Trudeau's request to chair the Royal Commission on Economic Union and the Development Prospects, known as the Macdonald Commission.
The Commission was responsible for innovative policy recommendations including the early framework that led to the NAFTA agreement. A true statesman, he was subsequently appointed by the Right Honourable Brian Mulroney to serve as Canada's High Commissioner to Great Britain and Northern Ireland where he played a critical role in serving Canada's interests during the creation of the key aspects of the European Union.
Donald was a gentle man, who inherited from his father Donald Angus Macdonald, a love of jazz and a commitment to public service. He would speak proudly of his father's legacy as a World War One veteran and as Canada's last Dominion Forester. His mother, Majorie Isabel Stovel, introduced him to books during summers spent at her father's home who, as owner of the Stovel Publishing House in Winnipeg, had an extraordinary library. His love of reading led to academic success, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts from Trinity College, University of Toronto, Bachelor of Laws from Osgoode Law School, Master of Laws from Harvard University, and a Diploma in International Relations from Cambridge University.
He received many honours over his years of public service including his appointment as a Companion of the Order of Canada, and honorary degrees from the Colorado School of Mines and Engineering, Carleton University, University of New Brunswick, the University of Toronto, and Trinity College, Doctor of Sacred Letters.
He gave joy to his family and friends, like the thousands of trees he planted in his lifetime: an investment of hope and optimism that we will remember as the essence of Donald. And when we do, though our hearts ache, we smile. A funeral service will be held in Our Lady Of Perpetual Help Church, 78 Clifton Road, Toronto, at 3:00 p.m. on Friday, October 19, 2018.
