KHALIL, Isis (April 7, 1941-September 4, 2005)
Went to be with Our Lord after a courageous battle with cancer. Isis was surrounded by her family and Friends when she passed away at Sunnybrook Hospital. Beloved wife of Samir. Treasured mother of son Yousri, and daughter Amira. Dear sister of Maher SEDRA, Salwa RAFLA, Tahany FARAG, Sanaa MIKAHAIL and Magdy SEDRA. Loving aunt to several nieces and nephews. Devoted friend to many. Isis immigrated to Canada from Egypt in 1966. Shortly thereafter, with her usual determination, her diligent studies enabled her employment as a medical lab technologist at Sunnybrook Hospital. Her 31 year career span at Sunnybrook was filled with dedication, integrity, and personal and professional growth. She was a valued and respected supervisor and colleague. Isis lived life to the fullest with little time for sleep. She loved Canada dearly and made use of all the opportunities it gave her to live a full and rewarding life. Her refirement in 2000 allowed her more time for personal pursuits such as travelling, volunteer work and outdoor activities. Isis was an avid reader and had interests in many areas, including Egyptology, history, politics, Egyptian literature and short story writing. Her passion for Middle Eastern costume creations and presentations was greatly appreciated in many circles. She cherished her involvement at fund-raising events and festivals at both Saint Mark's and Saint Mary's Coptic Orthodox Churches, and Chapel Place Presbyterian Church. It was in the Discipleship of Our Lord's work that Isis found greatest satisfaction. We will all greatly miss her. Resting at Chapel Ridge Funeral Home, 8911 Woodbine Ave., Markham (three lights north of Hwy. 7), 905-305-8508. Visitation on Thursday, September 8 from 1-3 and 6-8 p.m. and Friday 9-11 a.m. Funeral Service on Friday, September 9 at 12 p.m. at Saint Mark's Coptic Church (41 Glendinning, Scarborough).

Transit death leads police to second body
Detectives speculate store proprietor and companion died in murder-suicide
By Joe FRIESEN, Saturday, February 19, 2005 - Page A16
A man and woman are dead after an apparent murder-suicide that spanned the city's east and west ends.
The police investigation began shortly after 2 a.m. yesterday, when a man was killed by a subway train at Donlands station. Police said they traced the man to a corner store on Mimico Avenue in Etobicoke where, two hours later, they discovered the body of a female acquaintance of the man. They would not identify the two people.
Police are trying to establish the nature of the relationship, but residents of the quiet, working-class neighbourhood by the lake say the store was run by Tanvir Ashraf KHAN, known to his customers as Tan.
Mr. KHAN's long-time companion was known as Shah.
Jill REED, who lives across the street from the store, said the two were in their 40s and had been a couple for some time. There was trouble in the relationship recently, however, and Shah left Mr. KHAN for about a month around Christmas, Ms. REED said.
"They were just nice, friendly people," Ms. REED said. Like many people, she shopped at the New Jersey Variety and Discount Store for such things as cigarettes and milk. Mr. KHAN always greeted his customers with a smile, she said.
However, another neighbour, Gary David BROWN, said he spoke to Shah on the streetcar last week, and she told him that Mr. KHAN was "a little unstable."
At the time, Mr. BROWN was explaining how he had had a falling out with Mr. KHAN nine months earlier.
Mr. BROWN had taken a special interest in the goings-on at his local corner shop two years ago and had been advising Mr. KHAN on the business. He recommended that Mr. KHAN branch out by establishing a Western Union money-transfer service, as well as providing fax and photocopy services and installing a pay telephone -- all of which turned out well for his store, Mr. BROWN said.
But one day, when Mr. BROWN wanted to send a fax, Mr. KHAN reacted angrily toward him, telling him not to wave the papers in front of him. Mr. BROWN was baffled, and left the store vowing not to return. The two had barely spoken since.
"He was very reserved, but as soon as something went wrong, like when he was having Internet problems with Western Union, it really got his blood pressure up," Mr. BROWN said. "He was easy-going until something got on his nerves."
Mr. BROWN said Mr. KHAN worked all hours of the day, from around 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., and was often spotted stepping outside the shop for a cigarette. Shah, who Mr. BROWN described as "the nicest person you would ever want to meet," would often join Mr. KHAN at work.
The only problem Mr. BROWN had been aware of at the store related to the penny candy.
Children from the local school were stealing too much of it, Mr. BROWN said, so Mr. KHAN decided to get rid of it and sell only chocolate bars.
Manvinder KAUR, who lives next door to the small residence -- attached to the store -- where Mr. KHAN lived, said she saw him late Thursday night.
He was putting out the garbage as usual, and said hello with a big smile. The two often chatted because they shared a language, she said.
Mr. KHAN was born in Pakistan. He took up the corner-shop business in December, 2001. He rented the store for $725 a month, and the attached residence for $325 a month.
The property owners described Mr. KHAN as likable and said he always paid his rent on time.
"It's very sad news. We'd never believe that," said the owner, who asked to remain anonymous.
"I don't know why he did this."
Postmortems will be performed today. The homicide squad has taken over the investigation.

KHAN, Namir Faiyaz
It is with the deepest regret and sorrow that we announce the passing of Namir Faiyaz KHAN, a brilliant teacher, writer and actor who departed suddenly from this world on Sunday, July 10, 2005. He was born in the city of Allahabad, India on January 11, 1955 to Mumtaz Jahan KHAN and Fayaz Bahadur KHAN. He received his Bachelor and Masters degrees in Political Science at Carleton University in Ottawa. He was predeceased by his brother Nasir KHAN and will be missed by his loving family including brothers Nadir KHAN of Toronto and Nazir KHAN of California, sisters Nazish DHIR (née KHAN) of Oakville and Nigat HUSSIEN (née KHAN) of Dubai, India, numerous nieces, nephews and in-laws and his close family of Friends including Cynthia ROBERTS, Arnd JURGENSEN, Suzanne ELLENBOGEN, Wendy DIX, Mark O'HARE, Greg KLYMKIW and many, many others. Namir's professional and artistic achievements are incalculable. As a writer he co-authored numerous published works including the books 'Healthy Cities', 'Sustainable Production' and 'Healthy Work'. He co-wrote the screenplay for the acclaimed feature film, 'Jack of Hearts' and served as a script editor and consultant to numerous film professionals. Namir's love for cinema was matched by his love for teaching at numerous universities and colleges and most recently and prominently as a lecturer at the Centre For Technology and Social Development in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at the University of Toronto where hundreds of students received his passionate and learned lectures. At the Centre Namir conducted extremely valuable research and also served as the editor of the Bulletin of Science, Technology and Society. Namir was also a prolific actor and appeared in a number of legendary Canadian films including Roadkill, Highway 61, Dance Me Outside, Arrowhead and Jack of Hearts. Namir's life will be celebrated Thursday, July 14, 9: 30 a.m. at the Toronto Necropolis located at 200 Winchester Street in Toronto. Donations in lieu of flowers may be made to Greenpeace International or the Canadian Film Centre. Arrangements entrusted to The Simple Alternative Funeral Centre.

Namir KHAN, Lecturer (1955-2005)
University of Toronto teacher, film buff and some-time actor who enjoyed performing in front of his classes nurtured a dark secret
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to the Globe and Mail, Tuesday, October 4, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- Namir KHAN's life was a dichotomy. In his professional domain, he was an eloquent, fiery orator, whose speeches roused lecture rooms at the University of Toronto. In private, he was a complex, bland man, who kept many secrets to himself.
"He had a brilliant flair for performing. It contrasted with his private life of simplicity and frugality," said one of his Friends, Greg KLYMKIW.
Mr. KHAN's animated, note-less lectures puzzled the most hardened of freshmen students in the U of T's engineering department. These students were accustomed to no-nonsense, cold, hard facts in math and science and wondered why Mr. KHAN, who stood a mere 5-foot-1, sprinkled his lectures with environmental, political and psychological perspectives. The one-time supporting-role actor even interjected his love of cinema, literary and pop culture into his talks.
"He loved performing strategically and that also fed him as a lecturer," Mr. KLYMKIW said. "Seventy five per cent of his speeches had to do with movies. I watched Lawrence of Arabia with him over 20 times. He saw it hundreds of times. Lawrence as a human being was a complex person and there were parallels with Namir."
Mr. KHAN sought to make his lectures entertaining and many students stick-handled to get into his classes. His chief intellectual influences were German philosopher Martin Heidegger and French sociologist Jacques Ellul.
He would start each day drinking a cup of Earl Grey tea and tackling the cryptic crossword puzzle in The Globe and Mail. By midday, he would have finished an academic treatise, with evenings devoted to polishing off one or two mystery, science-fiction or historical books.
Born in India, Namir KHAN was 18 when he arrived in Canada. He soon enrolled at Carleton University, graduating in 1979. He got his master's in 1983 and then switched to the University of Toronto to start work on his doctorate, which he never completed. He became a teacher's assistant at the University of Toronto in 1984, teaching social sciences and engineering courses before joining the university's faculty of engineering full-time in "He was such a large part of my mind and my vocabulary," said Wendy DIX, one of his former girlfriends. "He was one of the most creative intellectuals I've ever known. I was a bit of an observer but he never condescended. He was probably the most brilliant mind in the room, and where people were not as smart or educated, he didn't exclude them."
Filmmaker Cynthia ROBERTS, another former girlfriend, recalls meeting him at Carleton University in 1981 when both were photography buffs. She was toting around a large-format Mamiya camera, prompting him to remark, "That's a big camera." He then asked her out on a date.
For all the passion he produced in front of a classroom, Mr. KHAN's real love was cinema. He not only watched movies frequently, he played roles in a number of them. In 1989, Mr. KHAN ran into Queer as Folk director Bruce McDonald and soon found himself cast as an undertaker in Highway 61. Later, Mr. McDonald used him as a bartender in Dance Me Outside, as a photographer in Elimination Dance and a cameraman in Roadkill. At Ms. ROBERTS's request, Mr. KHAN wrote a screenplay for an underground production called Jack of Hearts about a scientist involved with body implants. One of his last acts in the movie business was a voice-over in the 1997 film City of Dark.
By 1997, Mr. KHAN had decided to cut back on the movie business to spend more time teaching and to edit the U of T's Bulletin of Science, Technology and Society.
A few years ago, Mr. KHAN discovered he had Korsakoff's syndrome, a brain disorder that stems from excessive alcohol use and is usually coupled with poor eating habits. Although he was known to be a binge drinker who loved rum and coke, the news astonished his Friends. "He was the life of the party but he kept his close Friends at bay," said his friend Arnd JURGENSEN. "To find out that he had a serious drinking problem was of considerable shock."
In Korsakoff's syndrome, prolonged alcohol causes growths on the brain; eventually, Mr. KHAN was forced to give up teaching. As a lecturer who didn't take notes and relied strictly on memory, the illness came as a severe blow. However, when told the problem was reversible if he stopped drinking, and that he would be "good as new" within six months, Mr. KHAN refused to quit.
"He was very gifted but he drank himself to the grave," said one of his university superiors.
Others did not know until near the end. "I never realized Namir was so close to death," Ms. DIX said.
Ironically, near the end of his life, Mr. KHAN began working on a screenplay that involved a detective who had developed Korsakoff's syndrome.
Namir KHAN was born January 11, 1955, in Allahabad, India. He died in Toronto on July 10, 2005. A coroner's report on the cause of death proved inconclusive. He had been suffering for several years from Korsakoff's syndrome. He is survived by brothers Nadir and Nazir and sisters Nazish and Nigaf. He was predeceased by his parents Faiyaz and Mumtaz Jahan KHAN and a brother, Nasir.

It is with great sadness that the family of Beverly Jean MOFFATT- SCHAFFNER (CROCKER) announces her death on February 15, 2005, in her 63rd year. Bev faced her short but difficult battle with Inflammatory Breast Cancer, the way she faced life - head on, with courage, determination and pride - never thinking about herself, but worrying about those around her. Bev always introduced herself as "an extreme introvert", yet she managed to touch the hearts of everyone she met. Bev leaves behind her life-partner of 11 1/2 years, Sami, with whom she loved to explore the back roads of Ontario, and spend weekends cross stitching and watching movies; her daughter, Christine, her husband Christopher BOAL, and their children Nicholas, Ashley-Rose, and Anthony, who were Grandma's pride and joy; and her daughter Susan, and her husband Marc DE LEON and "The Munchkin," due August 23rd. Also left to mourn Bev are her mother-in-law Dorothy MOFFATT; her chosen sister and brother-in-law Sue and Bob NITTOLY, and her best friend Lisa FAKHOURIE, both who cared so lovingly for Bev; her feline babies Sweetums, Treya, Molly, Merlin, Billy and LilSpooks; her spiritual family at St. Dunstan of Canterbury Anglican Church; and her former co-workers, family and Friends. She is predeceased by her parents, Jean and Alfred and her step-father Jack. The family would like to thank Drs. Akbar KHAN, Arnold TEPPERMAN, Michael CHAN and Dina ZAYID, for the wonderful and supportive care they gave Bev throughout her illness; her special nurse, Shawn, who visited daily and gently tended to her needs; the Palliative Care team from Scarborough Centenary Hospital; Fr. Richard NEWLAND whose visits were filled with spirituality and humour; and "The Prayer Team", who encompassed most the world and supported all of us through their prayers, cards, phone calls and emails. A celebration of Bev's life will be held at St. Dunstan of Canterbury Anglican Church (56 Lawson Road, Scarborough), on Saturday, February 19, 2005. Visitation and reception will begin at 7: 30 p.m., followed with the Funeral Service at 9: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to PALIN "The Weekend to End Breast Cancer"; or, 4 women 4 ever team, in Bev's name would be appreciated.

Family fears 2 drowned in accident
Police searching Lake Scugog
Men jumped from boat to aid relative
By Scott ROBERTS, Staff Reporter
It was supposed to be a simple family outing, a relaxing fishing trip to celebrate the 31st birthday of Mohammad Asim KHAN.
But the celebration turned into mourning on Monday when KHAN drowned in Lake Scugog, near Port Perry, while trying to save his 25-year-old cousin.
Now, a Richmond Hill family is left to grieve the death of the man they describe as caring and intelligent, as police continue to search for the body of his 44-year-old uncle, Mohammad ASHRAF, who also leapt into the water in the same rescue effort and is presumed drowned.
"Everyone is having a tough time dealing with it," said Rashed MOHAMMAD, who worked with KHAN at a local software company.
"He was too good and that's why I believe he lived too short."
About a dozen family members left shore about 2 p.m. Monday after renting a 14-foot aluminum fishing boat and a larger pontoon boat at the Port Perry Marina.
Just over two hours later, around 4: 20 p.m., police responded to a 911 call indicating one man was unconscious and another missing after jumping into the water to save Basit KHAN, who had drifted away from the boat after jumping in the lake. Neither man was wearing a life jacket.
Basit KHAN, 25, was wearing a life jacket and survived the incident with no injuries.
What began as a rescue mission by police late Monday became a recovery effort yesterday in the search for ASHRAF's body.
The Durham Regional Police marine unit sifted through the murky water about 3 kilometres north of the Port Perry Marina as a helicopter patrolled the scene from above.
Police suspended the search last night. It will resume today.
Relatives who witnessed the incident are still trying to understand how the tragedy happened. They said both men knew how to swim.
Although Lake Scugog is shallow -- in most places ranging from 2 to 4 metres deep -- it is notoriously weedy and has deep pockets of mud at its base, local residents said. Many speculate that could have contributed to the deaths, although police would not comment on the possibility last night.
Family members gathered at KHAN's home in Richmond Hill yesterday, remembering him as a loving father and husband who always tried to help others.
"He never said 'no' to anyone," said friend Ayaz A. AYAZ. "He was always solving problems for people."
Mohammad Asim KHAN, who moved here from Pakistan about four years ago, leaves behind his wife, Sadaf KHAN, and two children, Aleeza, 3, and Abdul Samad, who is 6 months old.
"He died trying to save someone's life without thinking of his own," said Mohammad Imtiaz KHAN, the uncle of the deceased. "He's a hero to me."
Meanwhile, Mohammad Imtiaz KHAN prays that a miracle might save his brother-in-law, Ashraf, who moved to Canada just a year and a half ago from Karachi, Pakistan.
"I am hoping that he's going to call anytime to say that he's okay," he said.
The visitation for Mohammad Asim KHAN will take place today from 12: 45 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Islamic Foundation of Toronto, 441 Nugget Ave. in Scarborough.
KHAN's body will be flown on Friday to Pakistan, where he will be buried.

Performance was gift of rock star of a prof
U of T academic talented speaker
Charismatic man mad about films
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Namir KHAN was such a performer -- not just in bit parts in the films of his Friends Bruce McDonald and Peter Lynch, but also in the classroom at University of Toronto where he taught engineering students.
His first-year course about sustainable development, technology's history and its role in creating a brave new environmentally sensitive world was never popular with freshmen. Accustomed to almost perfect papers in maths and sciences, they were suddenly being asked by this tiny guy (KHAN was 5 foot 1) with two degrees in political science to think laterally, make connections and put it all down in essay form.
But KHAN was a charismatic man, a rock star of a prof who used to ride a motorcycle in a black leather jacket. More to the point he was a gifted speaker, someone who could -- and did -- stand in front of 250 students in Room 1105 in the engineering school's Sandford Fleming Building and without notes integrate their world with the thoughts of Martin Heidegger (his personal muse) along with ideas from David Lean's Lawrence of Arabia (a film he'd watched hundreds of times) and then throw in references to pop culture, The Terminator and Toronto's bicycle paths.
He was a magus, pacing, gesticulating, his rich voice enveloping his entranced students, who would then clamour to get into the second- and third-year courses he also taught as a professor for the school's Centre for Technology and Social Development in the mechanical and industrial engineering department.
"He faced a bit of resistance from faculty and students. This was a course that had a less than positive effect on a grade point average," said his friend and teaching colleague Arnd JURGENSEN.
"But he was brilliant, simply brilliant, and he had an amazing ability to make complex arguments relevant and easily understood."
It helped that there were always a couple of students who would approach him after class to tentatively ask if he was indeed the undertaker in McDonald's Highway 61 or the East York landlord in Lynch's Genie-winning short film, Arrowhead.
On Sunday, July 10, Friends found KHAN dead in his Chinatown apartment. He was 50. He had stopped teaching last fall after being diagnosed with Korsakoff's syndrome, a brain disorder, but there was no conclusive cause of death stated in the coroner's report.
"He liked centre stage: in the movies, at lectures and at dinner parties, where at some point we would all be listening to Namir and enjoying every minute of it," said Wendy DIX, a former girlfriend. "He wore his knowledge lightly. He had fun with it."
"He would leave you charged," said his nephew Meraj DHIR, who is working on a doctorate in film at Harvard University in good part because of his uncle's influence. KHAN used to take DHIR, 29, and his younger brother Eshwin to all sorts of movies, and talk to them about the mise en scène, the historical underpinnings, the narrative arc, the director's eye, the rhythm and pulse of the piece.
Born and raised in India where he used to sneak out every Saturday to watch movies, KHAN was the youngest of six children. His Oxford University-educated father, the minister of education for his state, sent his children to Jesuit school and would often invite Hindu and Jesuit priests to dinner to broaden his children's education.
KHAN came to Canada when he was 18 and a year later enrolled at Carleton University for his undergraduate and master's degrees. That's where Toronto filmmaker Cynthia ROBERTS met him 25 years ago.
"Namir introduced me to great movies," she said. He took her to see Apocalypse Now on their first date.
In 1989 she introduced him to director Bruce McDonald. The two hit it off and McDonald hired KHAN on the spot to play a cinematographer in a movie. It wasn't a stretch for the movie-mad academic. Soon he became part of McDonald's regular coterie, playing the undertaker in Highway 61, a bartender in Dance Me Outside and a photographer in Elimination Dance.
In 1990 ROBERTS encouraged KHAN to write a screenplay with her three years later Jack of Hearts was produced. His last official credit occurred in 1997 when he did a voiceover in a film Called City of Dark, after which he recommitted himself to his academic work. He co-authored the books Healthy Cities, Sustainable Production and Healthy Work. He also edited the Bulletin of Science, Technology and Society.
But he was as passionate as ever about movies at the time of his death. He was working on a screenplay and developing a mystery featuring a sleuth with Korsakoff's syndrome.
In his eulogy, DHIR said that had KHAN had time to complete any of those projects, he was convinced his uncle would have become a "nobel laureate for literature, or an Academy Award-winning screenplay writer, an internationally renowned celebrity professor, or a perennial inhabitant of The New York Times bestseller list."
Perhaps, but in the meantime, his true art was in his performances: the ones he gave to his students, his family and, always, his Friends.

Toronto cabbie had 'huge' heart
Tariq KHAN, 40, died in a helicopter mishap while delivering aid to earthquake victims in his native Pakistan
By Isabel TEOTONIO, Staff Reporter
As the aid workers prepared for liftoff, Tariq KHAN watched with horror as a throng of villagers rushed toward the helicopter.
There were hundreds of people clambering atop overturned earth and scattered debris. And with each hastening step and deafening spin of the main rotor, his fears mounted, fellow workers recalled.
The villagers were simple folk from remote communities nestled deep in the mountainous folds of northern Pakistan who might not understand the dangers of getting close.
KHAN jumped out of the helicopter's cabin. He inched his way along the wall of people surrounding the helicopter, gently pushing them back and trying to create a safe distance so the helicopter could lift off and pick up more supplies for the earthquake victims.
As he tried to keep one person from getting perilously close, he turned suddenly and, not realizing the helicopter was on sloping ground with its tail much lower than usual, took a few fateful steps into its rotating blades.
In a split second, the 40-year-old was dead -- a tragic end to a life dedicated to helping others, even in his final moments.
KHAN, a Beck Taxi driver living in Toronto, had returned home to his native Pakistan to be with his dying mother. After her funeral, he remained to choose a bride and was preparing for his wedding when the October 8 earthquake struck.
The powerful quake, which has claimed more than 87,000 lives, measured 7.6 on the Richter scale. Immediately, he sprang into action and joined a relief team.
"This is the biggest example of how huge his heart was," long-time friend Asad FARID said about the accident that claimed KHAN's life on October 16. "He had such a kind heart.... It was his caring personality that took him back to Pakistan.
"This is a big tragedy," FARID said in an interview from his Toronto home. "He was the oldest son and the sole provider for his family. Now what will they do?"
KHAN immigrated to Canada around 1997, searching for a job that would support the large family he left back in his hometown, Bannu.
As the only breadwinner for a household that included elderly parents, three unmarried sisters and three younger brothers, all students, KHAN figured he'd have no problem landing an agricultural job in Canada. After all, he had a master's degree in agriculture and had worked in Pakistan for seven years as a deputy director of water management.
Unable to find work in his field, he did a number of odd jobs in Toronto, including brief stints at an electronics and video store, as a security guard and, most recently, as a cab driver.
Anwaar HAQ, a Royal Taxi driver who was once KHAN's roommate, said he'll never forget KHAN's "always smiling face" and selfless nature.
When the blackout occurred two years ago in Toronto, he said, KHAN stopped his cab to direct traffic.
"Everybody else was making money and there he was directing traffic, just happy to be able to help."
KHAN's devotion to supporting his family back home was such that for many years he quelled all thoughts of marriage, focusing solely on work. He did, however, find time to volunteer as an auxiliary member of the Toronto Police Service from 2002 to 2004, working primarily on crime prevention and community outreach.
In February, his mother became ill and KHAN immediately returned home to Pakistan. Uncertain about how long he'd be there and itching to work with a non-government organization, he joined the Sungi Development Foundation in April.
Hired as a team leader, he worked with marginalized communities to develop sustainable programs in northern Pakistan.
Co-worker Nazia HAMEED recalled KHAN's efforts in promoting the status of women. Against the odds, he persuaded the men of three villages to let women participate in a project where they would be trained in crafts -- a skill that could generate income. It's significant to note, HAMEED said, it was the first time in six years the women had participated in an activity outside their villages.
After KHAN's mother died in July, he remained in search of a wife, whom he planned to return with to Canada. With a bride chosen and a wedding date set for November 5, he took October off from working with Sungi to plan the celebration.
But when news arrived that many of the communities he had worked with had disappeared beneath landslides or been reduced to rubble, nothing could keep him from joining Sungi's relief operations not even his family's disapproval.
"His spirit and dedication have encouraged everyone to do more," said Sungi executive director Samina KHAN, who described him as a "tireless social worker."
"Right to the end of his life, he was dedicated to helping others."
