A loving and inspiring mother, daughter, sister and best friend, Arlene passed away peacefully and surrounded by her family on Sunday, June 10, 2018. She remains in the hearts of daughters, Chloe, Aliya and Mica Daniels; their father, Zev Daniels: sisters and brothers- in-law, Elly and Peter Daniels; Laurie and Mark Rosenfield; and Sharron and Shelly Fruitman. She is already missed by nieces and nephews, Courtney and Michael, Zachary, Maya and Esmé Howells, Jonathan, Alexander and Arthur Rosenfield; and Olivia and Lily Daniels. Arlene was a caring daughter to her late parents Zelda and H. Scotty Barlin.
Intelligent, curious, dynamic and free- spirited, Arlene lived her life fully and fearlessly. Without prejudice, she gave love to everyone who crossed her path.
Her warm and caring spirit created an extended family of friends, spanning the world, of like- minded, open and beautiful souls.
An eternal teacher and guide, Arlene had the ability, with just her smile or a few wise words, to set someone on their true and right path. She introduced her friends and family to yoga and spirituality, sharing compassion and curiousity for a greater good through her perspective. Her creativity, imagination and engaging persona added to her impact on those around her. It didn't get cooler than Arlene.
Arlene held a welcoming home and space for all, and her family and friends will forever be grateful and feel blessed for her presence in their lives.
Arlene traveled the world trying new and innovative cancer treatments. Immense gratitude is given to all those near and far who provided care.
We will remember Arlene sitting out on the deck at her home in the Bahamas, listening to music, looking up at the stars and out over the clear ocean water, chanting Om Namah Shivaya.

JOHN SCOTT DEACON
71 - Our loving and beloved father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend passed on June 7, 2018.
Born into a large and loving family, Scott was a bright and kind spirit who touched all he knew with his thoughtfulness and loyalty. His charm, selflessness and dash of mischief will be missed by all who loved him.
Whether professionally, socially or randomly, he was quick to befriend those who crossed his path; always lending an ear, his time and support - and more often than not acting as the IT support desk! Friends new and old were always nearby, and his family was dear to him. Scott was the first to remember and celebrate the accomplishments of others and the first to raise a glass of red wine in their honour. Over the years, Scott was a contributor to the communities of Branksome Hall, Caledon and Beaumaris, forging memories and friendships along the way. His enjoyment of music was perhaps only rivaled by the companionship of his four legged friends over the years; Basil, Sophie, Roscoe and Fergus, each playing large roles in various chapters of his life. For many he will be remembered happily on the water in his beloved Landrover.
Scott will be dearly missed by his three devoted daughters and two sons-in-law; Emily, Norah, Tim, Grace, and Morris; and will forever be 'Pop' to his five grandchildren, Henry, Samuel, Cecily, Rosemary, and Frederick.
Scott is also survived by siblings, Peter, Barbara, and Susan.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Parkinson's Society of Canada or to Dancing with Parkinson's.
The family would also like to extend a special thank you to the staff at Bradgate Arms, his caregivers and the extended medical teams of nurses and doctors who took such great care of Scott over the last few years.
Details of a celebration of Scott's life for his family and friends will be shared in the coming days.

HARRY TAYLOR SEYMOUR
Harry passed away after a brief illness Friday, June 8, 2018, surrounded by his loving family; wife, Lillian; daughters, Jeanette, and Sasha; and her partner, Yotam. We are heartbroken.
Harry was born in Hamilton in 1936, raised in Ottawa and educated in Ontario where he met Lil, the love of his life. They had 54 wonderful years together, travelling, golfing, playing tennis, skiing and enjoying friendships.
They brought out the best in each other and kept each other young with their interest in the arts and in lifelong learning.
Harry raised two devoted daughters to whom he was not only father, but champion and hero. He was an extraordinary father and the love he had for his girls was limitless and unconditional. Harry ("Mr.") Seymour was a wonderful friend to Yotam, with whom he argued over the cheque, shared an avid interest in the field of technology and enjoyed a round of golf.
He spent his working life as a Professional Engineer, financial researcher and analyst, entrepreneur and philanthropist.
He had a keen interest in education and was a quietly generous donor to Branksome Hall, various hospitals and community programs. Harry was Past President of the Empire Club and an active Member of the Board of The York Club. He was awarded the Canada 125 Medal for community service, and most recently devoted his time and talent to the Rosedale United Church.
Harry will be remembered by everyone who met him for his kindness, generosity, curiosity and humility; for having a handshake to be reckoned with, a twinkle in his eye and a laugh that could be heard across a crowded room. He was a true gentleman.
As Sylvia Cape said, "We lost a bit of ourselves with Harry gone."
The family welcomes friends of Harry at the Humphrey Funeral Home A.W. Miles - Newbigging Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Davisville Avenue) on Wednesday, June 13th from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Please note, additional parking during the visitation is available on the St. Cuthbert's Anglican Church lot.
The funeral service will be held in Rosedale United Church on Thursday, June 14th at 2:00 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made, if desired, to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario, St. Michael's Hospital or the charity of your choice. Condolences, photographs and memories may be forwarded through humphreymilesnewbigging.com.
