SIMMONDS, Leonard Claude
Having recently entered his 89th year, surrounded by his loving wife Betty and their family, passed peacefully into the presence of God at Uxbridge on Wednesday, July 27, 2005. Born July 19, 1917 in Toronto, Claude was the cherished son of the late Arthur Claude and Ada May SHOBROOK. Deeply missed by his adored and adoring wife of more than 63 years, Betty Graham McNEILL and their seven children and their spouses, 26 grandchildren and their spouses, and 7 great-grandchildren: Ruth SIMMONDS and her children Louise KORHONEN and Chris HAZLETON, and Danielle; Shelagh and Leigh POPOV and Chloe and Sophie; Wesley KORHONEN and Laura KORHONEN.

Bruce and Tamara SIMMONDS and Benjamin, Joshua, Daniel and James. Paul and Laurie SIMMONDS and William. Lois WEAVER and and her children Rachel and Jessica. Predeceased by brothers Herbert A. and David S. Loving brother of sisters Gladys SMITH and Arthur, Dorothy and William EBERLIN, Mary STURGESS and Reverend Dr. William, Madeline SIMMONDS and sister-in-law Barbara SIMMONDS (Mrs. David S.). Predeceased by beloved parents-in-law John Herbert and Cassie McNEILL. Lovingly remembered brother-in-law of Reverend W. Arnold and Helen McNEILL, Alan and Marion McNEILL, Margaret and Rev. Morry WOROZBYT and Ruth H. McNEILL. Fondly remembered by Aunt Bertha TORRANS. Special 'Uncle Claude' to many nieces, nephews and their spouses and families, and to generations of Sunday School students at Immanuel Baptist and Glen Major churches. Special friend and mentor to scores of long-time Friends at Immanuel and Glen Major. Dad lived a full life of accomplishment and service in the name of his Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. He was raised in North Toronto and Rosedale, he graduated with highest honours in 1934 from Northern Secondary. With university not an option in the heart of the Great Depression, Dad joined his father A.C. SIMMONDS in the family electrical and radio parts business, commencing work on July 2, 1934 in perhaps the most difficult economic circumstances in history. He augmented his knowledge of radio through night courses at Radio College of Canada. At the outbreak of the war, Dad became a member of the 48th Highlanders Reserve, and in 1942 took a leave of absence from business to join the Royal Canadian Corps of Signals, Research and Development Branch, where he served in Ottawa in the rank of Sergeant-Major through the end of the war in 1945. One of his favourite of the many stories he used to tell was of his Commanding Officer Colonel who asked him for a job in the dying days of the war. Despite the challenge of the time he entered business, together with his father and younger brother David, Dad successfully built A.C. Simmonds and Sons to become the leading Canadian national distributor of electrical parts and electronic components, hi-fi, and communications equipment throughout the 1940's, 50's, 60's and 70's. The company was continually on the leading edge of market response to changing technology and successfully introduced many new electronic products to Canada. In 1977, Dad and his brother David recognized the expanded opportunity that would be available from the division of the Company between their families in order to accommodate the entrepreneurial abilities and drive of the next generation. This was accomplished effective January 1, 1978 with the assumption by David, his family and associates of the Lenbrook Division of A.C. Simmonds and Sons. Incorporated at that time, Lenbrook Inc. went on to become the base for the creation of numerous successful businesses including Clearnet Inc. and Air I.Q. Under Dad's leadership, A.C. Simmonds & Sons Ltd. also achieved tremendous growth and success after 1977, and spawned many different entrepreneurial enterprises including Midland Canada, Dynacharge Inc., Viewstar Canada, and ClubLink Corporation. In 1987, the family, together with other business associates, achieved control of Glenayre Electronics Ltd. of Vancouver, and Dad became Chairman until the annual meeting after the successful sale of the company in 1989. Dad had many Electronic Industry involvements, honours and associations but perhaps the one of which he was most proud of was his acceptance as a charter member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, notwithstanding the fact that the Depression has robbed him of the opportunity to actually become a qualified engineer. He had the honour of Chairing the annual Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers conference on two separate occasions. Always open to technological advancement, he travelled extensively as a guest lecturer for International Business Machines Corporation at their worldwide Ideas seminars in the 1970's. His love of people and his common touch was evidenced by his practice of personally greeting every employee at their workstation after any absence from business for more than a week. Most importantly, in the tradition established by A.C. Simmonds, Dad always conducted business with a widely recognized level of integrity that was never in doubt. Dad was a faithful and very active member of Immanuel Baptist Church for almost 80 years, fulfilling many different roles over the years including Young Peoples leader, Sunday School teacher, Juniors leader, and Board of Management member. He was General Superintendent of the Sunday School for 15 years, and was a member of the Board of Deacons for more than 50 years, serving as Chairman for many years. At the time of his passing, he continued as an Honorary Life Deacon, and one of the three Trustees of the Church. Although Dad did not possess the level of musical talent prevalent in his family, he did have a deep and abiding love of the hymns of the church, and had an incredible ability for memorization of many of them in their entirety. From the time of the purchase in 1947 of the family summer retreat in the Township of Uxbridge, Dad's church involvement shifted during the summer months to his beloved Glen Major Church, affectionately known by the family as 'the little church'. For many years he served under Sunday School superintendents Mr. John HINGSTON and Mrs. Jenny JOHNSON as Adult Class teacher, and in the mid-fifties he began to assist his father A.C. SIMMONDS as a lay preacher, using the experience he developed as a member of the Soldiers and Airmen's Christian Association in Ottawa during the war. Upon the death of his father in 1966, Dad assumed full responsibility for the lay preaching and pastoral duties, and continued faithfully to lead the vibrant summer evening services so loved by many until his inability to do so five years ago. son David assumed responsibility for coordination of the services at that time. Most of Dad's Board involvements and commitments using his tremendous skill as a consensus builder were to a wide variety of Christian organizations, consistent with his strong belief in and love for both foreign and home missions work, and at the time of his passing he continued as an Honorary Life member of most of them. These included B.Y.U. (President 1949-50), Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship for 26 years. P (Chairman 1971-74), Ontario Pioneer Camp for 11 years (Chairman 1956-61), World Team (formerly R.B.M.U.) for 46 years, Yonge Street Mission for 44 years, Tyndale College and Seminary for 45 years (formerly O.B.C. / O.T.S., Chairman 1976-82), and Scripture Union for 50 years. In 1978 he joined the Boa

McNEILL, Lily Curley
It is with great sadness that the family and Friends of Lily Curley McNEILL announce her death on July 2nd, 2005, three weeks shy of her 81st birthday. Lily was born July 26th, 1924 in Glasgow, Scotland, but moved with her parents, James and Jean McNEILL, to Barrhead as a young girl. She was predeceased by her parents, her sister Helen and her friend of more than 40 years, Dorothy BARRY, whom she missed dearly after Dorothy's death at this time last year. Lily came to Canada in her early thirties and worked for General Electric for many years until she retired early at 64 (a decision she never regretted!). She loved a good mystery, a good laugh, wee dogs, strong cups of tea, chocolate gingers, toasted cheese, mashed potatoes with gravy, red geraniums on the balcony in summer and, above all, the people in her life. Lily will be missed by all who knew and loved her especially her family: brothers James and Donald and his wife Christine, all of Scotland, niece Jacqueline of England, as well as by her many Friends here in Toronto particularly: Verna, Anita, Hazel, Evelyn, Sara, Pam and the staff of the Sterling Karamar building where she lived. Special thanks to Dr. CRISPINO, Dr. JENEY, the staff of St. Joseph's Palliative Care and Support Services, Dora, Richard and Carol-Ann of Pharma Plus as well as the personal support workers from Para Med who all cared for Lily so lovingly in her last weeks. Nothing is more precious than a true friend. (Anon) Lily was precious to us all.
