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.

When he was 17, he attended the University of Toronto studying Institutional Management. Upon graduation he found a job in Financial Services and enjoyed a long and interesting career. He was a man of deep faith and enjoyed giving of his time, serving on many boards. He travelled extensively for work and pleasure. Andy's life exuded joy and kindness.
His love of people was surpassed only by his love of Swiss Chalet and strawberry ice cream.

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.
