HAUGHTON, Paul Laurence
Passed peacefully on Saturday, December 3, 2005 after a very long, courageous battle with Pancreatic Cancer. Larry leaves his wife Joyce Quinn, his son Michael HAUGHTON, his mother Beryl SAMS and many Friends who will truly miss his presence. Larry positively touched people's lives wherever he went. His spontaneity, charisma, and sense of humour were remarkable, even through the pain of his disease. He was an avid golfer, a dynamic businessman, a lover of fast and well-engineered cars and in his early years, a professional driver in the Indy Car series. He founded two brokerage firms, Canada's first and only Indy Racing team and most recently, the Pancreatic Cancer Foundation. As a trader, Larry loved the mix of personalities, math and intuition that he believed were best displayed in financial markets. He was a scout leader for more than 10 years and was very proud of 'his boys' who long after leaving the scouting program, continued to come to him for advice and Friendship. He was the 'miracle man', fighting recurring Pancreatic Cancer for almost six years and never could have done so without the amazing care of a wide variety of medical staff at the Princess Margaret and Toronto General Hospitals in Toronto. Our heartfelt thanks to the doctors who untiringly partnered with him to fight this disease, making every possible effort to preserve the life of a man who tenaciously clung to the belief that 'someone has to win'. Also our grateful thanks to the doctors and nurses at St. Joseph's Hospital in Hamilton who took such respectful, compassionate care of him during the end stage of his illness. A memorial service will be held on January 15th at 3: 00 p.m. at the Greystone Golf and Country Club to celebrate Larry's life. Donations can be made in Larry's memory to the Pancreatic Cancer Foundation (137 Amelia Street, Toronto, Ontario M4X 1E6) www.marlattfuneralhomehamilton.com

KAPSI, Igor
Died peacefully in his home, age 93, on Friday, November 11, 2005. We mourn a gentle, proud and devoted father and grandfather. After his wife Leida passed away in 1992, Igor continued to lead an independent life in his own home, cooking, gardening and baking his own rye bread once a month. Left to mourn are his two loving daughters, Irja (Rein) MAGI and Nora (Ilmar) WALLNER. His greatest pride was his much loved and devoted grand_son Aleksander with whom he recently celebrated a 20th birthday. Igor also leaves his much loved step-granddaughters Lisa (Nick) SAMSTAG of New York, Laura (Gabriel) BINCIK in Toronto, Amy WALLNER of Calgary and Anna WALLER of Vancouver, along with his step-great-grandchildren Hanna and Julia BINCIK and Claire SAMSTAG. Mourned also by godson Sven KERST in Sweden and Friends and relatives in Estonia. In 1944 Igor fled the Soviet takeover of his beloved Estonia and after difficult years in Germany and Scotland the family arrived in Canada in 1951 where he soon achieved Canadian Citizenship. He longed to see the end of Soviet tyranny in Estonia and in 1991 his dream came true. By this time Igor had become a true Canadian valuing all the freedoms this country allows. Happily he was able to visit his homeland and witness wonderful changes. A funeral service will be held in the Chapel of the Murray E. Newbigging Funeral Home, 733 Mt. Pleasant Road (south of Eglinton), on Thursday, November 17, 2005 at 11 a.m., with visitation one hour prior. According to his wishes, Igor will be cremated and laid to rest at Mount Pleasant Cemetery beside his beloved wife Leida Johanna. Donations may be made to St. Andrew's Estonian Lutheran Church in memory of Igor KAPSI. Rest in Peace 'Popi' 'Ah, when to the heart of a man Was it ever less than a treason To go with the drift of things, To yield with a grace to reason, And bow and accept the end Of a Love or a season?' - Robert Frost
