LINDO, William Joseph " Bill" (1921-2005)
Passed away peacefully at home, Wednesday January 13, 2005, following a lengthy illness. He is survived by his devoted wife Bernice, his loving sister, Margaret McCULLOUGH, and his 7 children, Lorraine HENNESSEY, Eleanore, Elaine, Marion ZAKOS (Kingston), Christine MILCAWICH, Peter, and Marguerite. He was proud and delighted to have 15 grandchildren. Nothing was more important to him than his family. Bill often said his greatest accomplishment was his marriage to Bernice. Through her loving care and unwavering courage, he was able to live out his final months as he so dearly wished, at home, surrounded by those whom he loved, and who loved him most. As a successful entrepreneur, Bill created several manufacturing enterprises involving a wide range of products from the first artificial fire logs in Canada to windshield wiper antifreeze. His flagship company, TML Industries Ltd., the second largest can manufacturing business in Canada, continues as his legacy, operated by his son Peter, and daughters Christine and Marguerite. He also leaves behind his last venture, a fledgling start-up - Dr. Maggie Pet Food Supplements - operated by daughter Elaine. Much of his success was due to the personal integrity and concern for others that he brought to all his business dealings. His longtime business partner, Joe WOMERSLEY remained a lifelong steadfast friend as did countless colleagues, customers and employees. Bill was an exceptional athlete throughout his life. He especially distinguished himself as a senior marathon runner and triathlete, competing for the Canadian National Team in the World Champion Triathlon in 1993 at the age of 72. His stamina and dedication to physical fitness were amazing and inspirational, particularly to those who knew him as a denizen of the Willowdale Fitness Institute where he was a member for over 30 years. All of us who were privileged to know him through business, sports, or on a personal level, were touched by his generosity of spirit, his love of people, animals, nature, music, and his unbounded enthusiasm for life. We will remember him in so many ways for so much that we shared - the illuminating ideas, the smiles, the songs, the moments full of love and hope and striving, the triumphs and failures that made up his meaningful and cherished life. The family welcomes Friends to celebrate Bill LINDO's life at a memorial service to be held at the Scarborough Golf and Country Club, 321 Scarborough Golf Club Rd., (Kingston Rd. east of Markham Rd.) on Sunday, January 16 from 1-4 p.m. In lieu of a formal eulogy, those who wish to, may relate their favorite memories of life with Bill.

Crossing the finish line his specialty
Bill LINDO swam, cycled and ran almost to the end
Top triathlete was also a successful businessman
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
This is a story of a life in the fast lane. A very long fast lane.
Bill LINDO, 83, is believed to have been Canada's oldest triathlete, entering and often winning the Olympic distance races of 1.5-kilometre swims, 40-kilometre cycles and 10-kilometre runs.
He thought it was easier than marathon running -- although he did a lot of that as well, including a personal best on April 13, 1981, his 60th birthday, at the prestigious Boston Marathon.
He'd been planning to stop running marathons after that one -- he always over-trained and he always sustained some injury or other -- but he did so well, easily conquering Heartbreak Hill at Mile 22, and felt so good crossing the finish line, he decided to revise that plan and keep on running.
There were plenty more finish lines for LINDO. He ran marathons in Toronto, Ottawa, New York, Chicago, a couple of more times in Boston, and he had the T-shirts to prove it. In 1992, when he was 71, he competed for the Canadian national team at the world championship triathlon event held at Deerhurst Inn in Muskoka, the first time ever in Canada. He crossed that finish line looking as if he had just run around the block.
Perhaps that is what it felt like, too. LINDO had been training hard for that meet, three hours a day, six days a week, swimming six, cycling 120 and running 80 kilometres. Actually he'd been training to compete in Hawaii's famous Iron Man, infinitely more gruelling as it includes a full marathon run, and he'd been travelling around the province's triathlete circuit. He was spotted at a Guelph event and urged to try out for the national team. He qualified, but he had to be talked into competing at the world championship because it meant he would have to miss the Iron Man event.
"He told us that he couldn't say no, that they were giving him all this great stuff," his daughter Elaine LINDO said. "Red-and-white warm-up pants, swimsuit, hat, singlet, all kinds of stuff. He couldn't resist."
He was the only Canadian competing in the over-60 age categories there were nine athletes over 70. Wearing red and white and the number 1104, LINDO came fourth.
"He was the hometown hero. Everybody knew who he was," Elaine recalled. She remembered that the crowds went wild when her father came into view. "When he crossed the finish line, he looked so fresh, like he could do another triathlon. The Japanese guy could barely make it across the line."
The photo Elaine took of her father crossing the line is reproduced here. Of all the photos of all his finishes, this one was his favourite. He was upright, he was fresh and he was laughing.
LINDO died at home on January 13.
"He liked winning his categories to the point where he was the only one in his age category," said another daughter, film director Eleanore LINDO. "He wanted to compete until there was no one left."
But then LINDO decided what he really liked about the triathlon was biking, so for his 75th birthday, and in honour of what was supposed to be his retirement, he flew one of his titanium racing bikes to Amsterdam, where he rode around Holland. He then flew to Paris and rode through that city and France, and then on to to Switzerland, where he told his family he biked halfway up the Matterhorn.
Sure, they said. But maybe he really did, as his wife Bernice and their seven children well knew.
LINDO started getting fit sometime around his 50th birthday. He was out on the golf course kibitzing with some Friends and business colleagues when he commented on the girth of one of the men. Then he found out the man wore waist size 44: the same as LINDO. He joined the Y -- his family thinks it might well have been the next day -- taking up racquet ball, then squash.
Then he joined the Fitness Institute the first year it opened and got really serious about his workouts. Around the club he was famous for his endurance and fitness level, especially on the stationary bike, where he could go faster and longer than the professional hockey players working out next to him.
"Dad used to say they were wusses," said daughter Christine MILCAWICH. Here was a man who used to bike from his Beach-area home to Picton Provincial Park, bike around the park and then back home, all on a Sunday afternoon. "He had to do everything full force."
LINDO had at least two collisions with cars while training; the emergency-room doctors at Toronto East General Hospital once teased Bernice that she had brought her husband in more than all of their seven kids combined.
Sometimes he'd come in from training sessions looking tired and drained. "But he'd walk up the stairs, have a shower and be fully recovered when he came back down," his wife said.
Five years ago, he and Eleanore took up tennis. "He used me as a backboard," said Mayfair Lakeshore Racquet Club tennis coach Scott HURTUBISE. "He was remarkable. Only a small handful of people have his agility and tenacity."
LINDO grew up in Toronto's east end, where he was known as the "singing delivery boy," working at the grocery store of his buddy Steve STAVRO's father, at the corner of Queen St. E. and Coxwell Ave. A dropout after Grade 11, he was serving in Italy driving a supply truck in the middle of the action at Anzio when he vowed that if he got out of the war, he was going to settle down, get married and make something of himself. His mother decided she knew just the right girl, whom she took with her to the train station to welcome home the returning soldier. He and Bernice settled in his old family home at 11 Cherry Nook Gardens and had seven children in 10 years.
He worked in sales for a chemical company for years, taking his university degree in chemistry at night. In the early 1960s, LINDO formed a can distribution company that became the second largest in the country. His flagship company, TML Industries in Pickering, is run today by daughters Christine and Marguerite, and by Peter, his only son.
LINDO and his best friend Joe WOMERSLEY also started up Linwo Industries, a chemical packaging company. "Bill was a wizard at figures. He could set up a big quote in his head in 10 minutes," WOMERSLEY said. Entrepreneurial and adventurous, they also kick-started the first company in the country to make aerosol packaging, then another business making heavy-truck accessories, and later a company manufacturing the first artificial fireplace logs in Canada.
If things were getting tense at a meeting, or slow at a convention, LINDO would stand on his head and sing "Old Man River." If circumstances permitted, he'd stand on his head, drink a beer and belt out the song.
LINDO ran his businesses the way he ran his races, one after another after another. Soon he and WOMERSLEY were setting up a plant in Edmonton making plastic gallon jugs for antifreeze and another facility in Buffalo to wind 2.4 million cases of Stretch 'n' Seal for Colgate Palmolive in five years.
Then there was the Weed As You Walk weed killer. Dr. Maggie's Pet Food Supplement was his last business venture.
LINDO was still working four days a week and working out even more often when he was diagnosed with cancer. The last year of his life was the only time in which he'd ever been sick. Eleanore said he never gave up on the idea that he would do another triathlon. As his long-time friend WOMERSLEY said, "His heart was like a diesel motor. You can't stop that running. It was only his body that disintegrated and in the end gave out."

There will be a chance to visit with the family from 1: 00 p.m. on, with a short service to begin at 2: 00 p.m. John's church family could not have been more loving and supportive of him from the first day he stepped through their doors. It was there, with Divine help, that John learned to feel peace at night and hope each morning. In lieu of flowers, at John's request, offerings to Shallow Lake Community Church or to the Palliative Care facility at Grey Bruce Health Services, Southampton would be warmly appreciated. The care received in Southampton for John and our family by the doctors, nurses and staff was wonderful and we thank them sincerely for their compassion and caring. We are especially thankful for all the emotional, physical and spiritual help provided to us in these last weeks of John's life by all of our Friends and family. We have all felt comfort and security from your expressions of love and we will continue to remember you in our prayers. God bless you. Arrangements entrusted to Grey Bruce Cremation and Burial Services.

It is with our deepest sorrow and sadness that we announce the passing of our Mom and Grandmother (Mugga), after a brief battle with cancer, at home with her daughter and family at her bedside, on Saturday, August 13th, 2005. Pat will be forever loved and remembered by her daughter, sons and families.

Pat was a well traveled woman and accomplished her first dream among many in 1947-1952 as a Model in the United Kingdom and London's first live mannequin in 1951. But ultimately her dearest ones were her children, grandchildren, family and dear Friends. A private family service will be held to celebrate Pat's life. If Friends so desire, donations may be made in Pat's memory directly to the Canadian Cancer Society, Calgary and District Unit Office, 2nd floor, 215 - 12th Avenue South East, Calgary, Alberta, T2G 1A2, would be greatly appreciated.

Hugh TAILOR/TAYLOR, Sailor (1920-2005)
Chief petty officer served in the Royal Canadian Navy through three periods in its development. In 1940, he was among the skeleton crew that saved a battle-damaged H.M.C.S. Saguenay
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, October 24, 2005, Page S8
Ottawa -- Leading Seaman Hugh TAILOR/TAYLOR had just awakened from a nap in the upper mess deck of H.M.C.S. Saguenay when a torpedo fired by the Italian submarine Argo slammed into her port side at 3: 55 a.m. on December 1, 1940.
The explosion, which blew a large hole in Saguenay's hull three metres from the bow on the port side, killed 21 of Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR's shipmates and started a fire in the fore lower mess deck. Eighteen others, some severely burned, were wounded.
It was the start of a desperate, five-day odyssey that quickly became a naval legend that endures to this day, and Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR was right in the middle of it. He remembered that night for the rest of his life. "It was a helluva crash," he said in 1993. "The ship seemed to go up in the air and come down and just for a minute everything went silent. Then everything was on fire."
Within seconds, the crew of Saguenay, who had been escorting a convoy of 30 merchantmen from Gibraltar to Britain along with ships of the Royal Navy, ran to action stations. Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR, his three years of training in the Royal Canadian Navy kicking in, rushed to join his shipmates but slipped and fell ingloriously to the deck. That fall probably saved him from the burns suffered by those who ran over him in their haste to escape the blaze. He crawled instead. "All the flames were up high and I was laying on the floor. Actually, I think tripping was a godsend."
Miraculously, Saguenay, which had been steaming 300 nautical miles west of Ireland, was still afloat and moving at 12 knots. Damage, however, was severe. The stokers' and seamens' messes were gone and the bridge and wheelhouse had to be abandoned.
Yet the destruction failed to extinguish Saguenay's fighting spirit. Minutes later, the officer of the watch, Lieutenant Ralph WARWICK, spotted a submarine 800 metres off the port bow. Within seconds, a deck gun fired two 4.7-inch shells -- one short and one over the target -- before the submarine dived. At the time, no one knew that the sights on the turret had been knocked out of alignment by the explosion, making accurate fire impossible.
At dawn, H.M.S. Highlander arrived and removed 87 officers and ratings. Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR, who known as Buck, remained on board as one of the few nominated to take Saguenay to safety. It wasn't an easy assignment. Making a pitiful four knots with a fire still raging, Saguenay was forced to steam backward because of excessive vibrations. "Next day, she was relieved of the dead weight of a large section of her hull when it fell away, and she was able to increase speed to six knots," Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR wrote.
He also wondered if they'd ever make it. There were small fires to put out, the engine room was flooded and seawater had seeping into the oil tanks, contaminating the fuel. The temporary repairs to the hole in the hull also had to be monitored, which was one of the worst parts, said daughter Geraldine TAILOR/TAYLOR. " All his dead shipmates were there [inside] so he had to see them. It made him sick to his stomach."
Somehow, Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR and his shipmates worked miracles and kept their ship alive. "By December 4th, it was apparent that, barring an act of God or the enemy, Saguenay would be able to reach either Belfast or the Clyde."
One more ordeal remained for Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR and Saguenay, which was commissioned on May 22, 1931, in Portsmouth, England, as the first river-class destroyer built for the Royal Canadian Navy. Early on December 4, a mine exploded underneath the ship but did little damage. Saguenay arrived in Barrow-in-Furness, in northwest England, the following day.
A naval board of enquiry concluded that bringing the ship back to port "represents a very considerable feat of seamanship and endurance, and is one that reflects great credit on her captain, officers and ship's company." Saguenay's captain, Commander Gus MILES, was awarded the Order of the British Empire.
Thirteen months later, at the beginning of January, 1942, Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR lived though another dramatic episode when a week-long storm battered Saguenay as she escorted a convoy to Canada. About 400 nautical miles east of Newfoundland, "the wind rose rapidly to full hurricane force creating seas so violently confused that it was impossible to heave through in the normal manner," he wrote. "Hour after hour, in the log, the entries read, 'wind, 12; sea, 99,' which are the highest possible under any scale."
After two days of merciless pounding, Saguenay was "a bit of a mess." The storm had knocked out the main steering gear and Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR and two other men were sent to the "Tilley flats" at the stern, where emergency apparatus allowed the ship to be steered by hand.
First, though, the men had to get there, which meant inching along about 30 metres of sea-swept deck. Waves as high as 25 metres towered over them. "It was very dangerous. They could have been washed overboard," recalled fellow crewman George BORGAL of Halifax. Seventeen hours later, after displaying "remarkable stamina and endurance," Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR and his men were relieved.
Saguenay's punishment continued after Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR left the ship. In November of 1942, a collision on a foggy night off Newfoundland detonated racks of depth charges and blew off the stern. Saguenay once again made port but never returned to convoy duty. After that, the stern was sealed off and the ship became a training vessel.
By then, Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR was serving on H.M.C.S. St. Catherines. He was on duty on March 6, 1944, when the ship helped capture German submarine U-744. In an exhausting ordeal that lasted 32 hours, seven ships dropped 291 depth charges until finally U-744 surfaced, its guns blazing.
Buck TAILOR/TAYLOR was a Maritimer born with salt air in his lungs. Orphaned at an early age, he was raised by his Nova Scotia grandmother. At 15, he ran away to sea and joined the merchant marine, only to have his adventure meet an ignoble end when his ship ran aground in Bedford Basin at the north end of Halifax Harbour. It took him two days to walk home.
Two years later, on September 13, 1937, Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR joined the navy. Over the next 25 years, he served on 10 ships and cruised all over the world before retiring in 1962 as a chief petty officer. During the Korean War, he served on H.M.C.S. Haida. His career spanned three distinct eras, starting with a tiny prewar navy of 1,800 men and 13 ships that mobilized on September 10, 1939, and evolved into a huge wartime force of 100,000 sailors and 400 fighting ships. During the 1950s, the navy expanded to 20,000 men and 50 modern ships. It was the navy's golden era and Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR helped build it.
Despite a career filled with drama, Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR never boasted of his exploits, Geraldine TAILOR/TAYLOR said. "He was one of the unsung heroes of the Royal Canadian Navy because he never talked much about his experiences. He just did his job."
Hugh Edward TAILOR/TAYLOR was born on August 19, 1920, in Parrsboro, Nova Scotia He died of cancer on July 22 in Kemptville, Ontario He was 84. He leaves his wife, Patricia, his daughters Geraldine, June and Kathryn, and his son James.

GATIRD, Dorothy " Dottie" Evelyn
Peacefully at the William Osler Health Centre - Etobicoke Campus on Saturday, July 16th, 2005. Valued and beloved friend of Joy and Ernie WEISS and their family (Michael, Christopher, Laurene, Joel, Eden, and Noah) of Guelph, Isabel McKERIHEN of Toronto, and Kathleen and Dennis MILES of Mississauga. Dorothy's music career began in Guelph, where she was born. Her mother, Lily Willson GATIRD, was a gifted pianist who worked in the theatre and formerly taught music in England. Her father, Edward "Teddy" GATIRD, danced in a number of variety shows. Dorothy's love for music and dance was fostered by her parents and her piano teacher, Bessie HILL, who was well known in the Guelph community. Having won many piano competitions as a child, it was inevitable that Dorothy would make music her life's work. Her varied career included playing for classes at the Young Women's Christian Association, for Modern Dance classes at Columbia University's Teachers' College, for the Boris Volkoff Ballet Studio, as well as Boris Volkoff's Canadian Ballet Company, a forerunner of the National Ballet of Canada, for the Banff School of Fine Arts from 1958 until 1994, for Contemporary Dance classes at the University of Toronto. Dorothy accompanied Toronto Board of Education choirs at the Kiwanis Festival, and for more than 60 years she worked at Edith L. Groves School/Heydon Park Secondary School, where she played for physical education and vocal music classes and many school events. Dorothy GATIRD enriched the lives of all who knew her. She had the talent to be a concert pianist, but in keeping with her gentle, retiring nature she chose the accompanist's role. Friends may call at the Turner and Porter Yorke Chapel, 2357 Bloor St. W., at Windermere, east of the Jane Subway on Tuesday from 2: 00-4:00 and 7:00-9:00 p.m. Funeral Service will be held in the Chapel on Wednesday, July 20, 2005 at 2: 00 p.m. If desired, donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Alzheimer Society would be appreciated.
