The King of Danforth-Woodbine
Butcher knew customers' names, gave jobs to kids
Realtors touted shop as a plus in neighbourhood
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
For one week last November, the neighbourhood around Danforth and Woodbine Aves. was dipped in gloom.
Many people stood on the sidewalk outside Royal Beef -- a neighbourhood mecca since 1992 -- waiting for the passage of the funeral cortege from nearby St. Brigid's Church. Close to 2,000 more had gone to the church to say goodbye.
Paul ESTRELA, 46, their butcher and their buddy, had died.
They were both ESTRELA's customers and his Friends -- there was never any differentiating. A big, handsome guy with a boom box of a voice, he'd hail them by name from behind the counter at the back of his butcher shop.
"No lawyers today. We're not serving lawyers," ESTRELA would holler at Jay JOSEFO, a regular Saturday morning customer and a lawyer. There he'd be, grinning, framed by the stuffed animal heads on the wall behind him -- all mementoes from mentors, he'd say, insisting he never picked up a gun himself.
Once ESTRELA demanded to see a note from JOSEFO's wife before selling him rib steaks cut as thick as JOSEFO wanted. And so JOSEFO's wife Wendy wrote ESTRELA a note: "Dear Paul: Jay has my permission to have Jay-sized steaks."
"He had fun and you had such fun going there," JOSEFO said, recalling ESTRELA.
Customers came from all over the city to the shop ESTRELA ran with his wife Carmen. Others came every week from Collingwood, while some trekked to Toronto once a year from Buffalo. Most Saturdays, Royal Beef seemed like a crowded and very lively social club, with customers greeting each other in between kibitzing with Paul and catching up with Carmen.
Local real-estate agents often talked up Royal Beef as a great reason to buy a house in the area. ESTRELA was hailed in Toronto Life magazine, as well as in this newspaper, as a treasure -- one of the city's best butchers, an old-fashioned, savvy professional. He refused to sell meat that hadn't been aged 30 days, and once told a reporter he could cut meat four different ways: Italian, Canadian, German and English.
ESTRELA named his store after the Royal Winter Fair, where he won a butcher contest in 1982.
"He will be so missed," said Lucie JOHNSON, who first came into the store with her kids in strollers. "My kids are Royal Beef babies. That's what all his customers called our kids. Once you came here, you couldn't buy meat at a supermarket."
ESTRELA made a point of giving jobs to kids from the neighbourhood. "They would come here from school and tell Paul they wanted to work here, always because of Paul," said Carmen, who runs the shop's deli section.
For six years, Duncan McIROY and his brother walked by the store on their way to school. "Paul would be opening up and he'd toss me an orange," he recalled. McIROY started going into the store for sandwiches -- "I wasn't a big fan of the ones my mom made and it was $2 for the best sandwich you've ever seen" -- and they started talking.
One Halloween, ESTRELA pointed to a huge pumpkin at the front of the store and told McIROY he'd give him a job if he could figure out a way to take it home. McIROY ran home, grabbed his brother and a wagon, and the pair heaved and hauled it up and took it away. ESTRELA kept his part of the deal, hiring the 13-year-old McIROY six months later.
"My main job was to clean up, fetch him his cappuccinos and let him yell at me," McIROY, now 21, said about the man he calls his best friend. "If he had been as big as his voice, he'd be 8 feet tall."
ESTRELA was also 13 when he started working at the meat counter of Darrigos, a now-defunct Italian chain of supermarkets. He had just moved to Canada from Portugal with his parents and six sisters, and he learned not only to slaughter and skin animals but to speak Italian. That came in handy when he began courting a 16-year-old Carmen, whose Italian mother was a customer at the store. They married when she was 17 and he 19.
"My parents still held hands," said their daughter Bridgette, 22. She worked with her father in the shop on Sundays -- retail down time they spent talking and just "hanging out," she said. The ESTRELAs also have a son John, 26.
ESTRELA spent 11 years as a butcher at a Dominion grocery store until he opened his own place on Valentine's Day in 1984, on Woodmount Ave., around the corner from where Royal Beef was eventually established.
"There wasn't anyone who thought he would make it there, but Paul had the determination of a young bull, a warrior," said Gord DOUCETTE, a friend and fellow butcher. Until ESTRELA opened his own store, the two used to fish every Sunday morning on the Duffins Creek in Pickering, then grab bacon and eggs at Ted's Restaurant on Old Kingston Rd.
After ESTRELA opened his own place, DOUCETTE would come by every Monday morning for coffee and some shop talk. ESTRELA used to say DOUCETTE was the older brother he never had.
A year ago, ESTRELA was featured in the Star extolling the virtues of a new cut of steak, the tri-tip. "It's going to take off once people find out about it," he predicted at the time. As usual, he was right.
A month later, ESTRELA was diagnosed with cancer. He took three days off work, and startled customers wondered where he was. When word got out, offers of help poured in.
"People were saying, 'Anything you need, drives to hospital, anything,'" Bridgette said.
When ESTRELA told DOUCETTE, his friend promised to keep the business going. He closed down his own business and now runs the Royal Beef meat counter.
A little more than a week after ESTRELA's November 7 death, the lights came back on at Royal Beef.
"I couldn't stay away," Carmen said. "All my customers, we just needed to come together."

Mary Elinor POCOCK
By Kate POCOCK, Tuesday, January 25, 2005 - Page A18
Artist, photographer, metalworker, teacher. Born August 12, 1952, in Ottawa. Died September 3, 2004 in Toronto, of breast cancer, aged 52.
Even as a child, Mary viewed the world with imagination. While digging with sand shovels, she would be looking at her surroundings through the hole in the handle. When visiting Montreal's Expo 67, Mary created sandstone sculptures for the Youth Pavilion. As a teenager, Mary worked summers for the Department of Indian Affairs, tagging First Nations artifacts and decorating the showroom. Her bosses must have recognized her design sense, too, because a year later, they flew her to New York to research and photograph native crafts at two museums there.
In the early 1970s, she took that research to First Nations reserves across Alberta to teach traditional Cree and Ojibwa designs and publish a series of booklets. She was impressed that the Ojibwa had no word for "goodbye," for she too hated saying goodbye to almost anyone she met.
The second of seven children, Mary left her boisterous family to study metal and jewellery at Sheridan College and philosophy at Boston University, where she had her first photo exhibition. Returning to Canada, she became resident metalsmith at Toronto's Harbourfront Craft Studios and worked as a custom colour technician at BGM photo lab and Toronto Image Works. There, she met her husband, fellow photographer Marcus SCHUBERT. In 1989, after a wedding ceremony where she wore green and purple and her five flower-girl nieces wore white, Marcus took Mary and her camera on a 10-month honeymoon through Europe and North Africa in a Volkswagen camper. It was the first of their collaborative efforts, a journey that inspired many of her ethereal photographs. "Not the Material Girl," said brother Philip at her funeral, "but our Ethereal Girl."
Mary was teaching every second that she was alive. She taught art to pre-schoolers, school kids, and special education students at summer arts schools and at museums. She became a certified yoga instructor in California and combined it with art therapy for cancer patients. She instructed teachers on how to teach art and, at the end of her life, she taught hospice workers and nurses how to treat the dying. Even at her weakest, she worked on her illustrated cancer journals, the Pocock Diaries, so that they might inspire others.
Throughout her 11-year engagement with cancer, Mary relied on humour, her Buddhist philosophies and the natural flow of nature and life. The powerful link between creation and healing was nowhere more evident than in her photographs, mystical images of gardens or superimposed photos of ever-changing nature against permanent historic structures. Her greatest legacy, perhaps, is the 22 transparent photographic panels installed into patient windows at the new palliative care ward at Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto. At night, when the hallway lights are on, her photographs glow like stained glass. Elizabeth DOUGHERTY, a hospital social worker, summed it up best when she wrote that Mary "walked in peace, died in peace and left peace behind. Her images," she added, "contribute to the kindest gift she could give to another person -- a happy, peaceful death."
Mary loved great beginnings and great endings. She requested a plain pine box so mourners could paint and draw on her coffin. The visitation room was set up as an art gallery. Her photos hung on the walls, her sketchbooks of poetry were open so visitors could add to them. A table was filled with pastels, crayons and markers. As dozens of Friends and family painted scenes of nature, blessings and messages of thanks, one of her nephews painted "Fun!" on the casket. It was an unusual tribute for a funeral but one that Mary would have appreciated.
Kate POCOCK is Mary's sister.

DOUGHERTY, Donald Bruce (1920-2005)
Passed away peacefully at home in Montreal surrounded by his family on October 27, 2005 at age eightyfive after a brief illness. Born in Montreal, son of Raymond Charles DOUGHERTY and Mary PATERSON, he attended Guy Drummond School in Outremont, Roslyn School and Westmount High. Don interrupted his studies at McGill University to serve his country in World War 2. He trained at Royal Roads officer school in Victoria, then joined the Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve, taking part in convoy and mine sweeping operations as a lieutenant on the H.M.C.S. Suderoy IV and H.M.C.S. Atholl. After his military service, Don completed his Bachelor of Commerce at McGill University, graduating in 1948. Don started his career in the merchandising office at Eaton's in Montreal. He then enjoyed a long and successful career in the bedding industry with Simmons Limited, where he became Senior Vice President of Sales for Canada and managed the company's Vancouver operations for several years. After retiring from Simmons in 1985, Don worked for several years for the Quebec Furniture Manufacturers Association. Don was an avid sportsman and outdoor enthusiast. As a young man, he spent summers as a canoe tripping counsellor at Camp Ahmek in Algonquin Park. In high school and university he competed in football, squash, downhill and cross country skiing and ski jumping. Later on, Don served as Chairman of the Laurentian (Ski) Zone, which ran most of the major ski competitions in Canada at the time. He was also a member of the pioneering Red Birds Ski Club, raised money for the Canadian Olympic ski team and represented his country as a chef de mission at the 1952 Oslo Olympics. A keen golfer, Don was a member at Lambton Golf and Country Club in Toronto and Royal Montreal Golf Club. He also served as a committee and event volunteer at these clubs. Don loved not only the challenge of the game but the camaraderie it brought him. Later in life, Don took up curling, playing at both Lambton and the Mount Royal Curling Club. A long-time member of Delta Upsilon Fraternity, the Montreal Badminton and Squash Club (Atwater Club) and Mount Royal United Church, he also enjoyed social outings in recent years with his 'Romeos' circle of Friends from the Town of Mount Royal. Don spent many memorable summer and ski vacations with his family at Cape Cod, Oyster River on Vancouver Island, Stowe (Vermont), Mont Sainte-Anne and Corlear Bay on Lake Champlain. A modest, generous, gentle man with a playful sense of humour and famous sweet tooth, Don made a point of keeping up with his extensive network of long-time Friends, acquaintances and former colleagues. He had a rich life, well lived, and will be greatly missed. He is survived by his wife Joan (MASON,) with whom he recently marked a 57th wedding anniversary, brother Pat (Judy), sister-in-law Kathryn MASON, brother-in-law Bill MASON (Kati,) children Tim (Christina), Cynthia (Bob), Geoff (Susie), Stephen (Melodie) and Sarah, grandchildren Joshua (Jen), Caitlin, Sarah, Jake, Peter, Andrew, Michelle and Erin and many nephews and nieces. Thank you for the care and compassion of the Victorian Order of Nurses, centre local de services communautaires Côtedes-Neiges, Dr. Nicole Baird, the staff of the Montreal General Hospital and Dr. Paul Lysy.
