PITHER, William Garth (March 6, 1921-September 8, 2006)
A pioneer in the Cable television industry, Garth passed away peacefully on September 8, 2006 in Vancouver. Predeceased by his adoring wife Dorothy, he is survived by sons Ron, Barry, and Gordon; grand_sons Colin and Lane; daughter-in-law Deborah BROADLEY; sister Beth (Charles;) nephew Gerry EDWARDS, and nieces Linda MASON, Sharon FARNETTI, and Heather PICCO. Garth's 'family' was bigger than most, as his reach, influence, and genuine interest always extended in the most caring of ways beyond the conventional his sense of community and contribution were hallmarks of his life. Garth's watchwords were 'Perseverance', 'Why not?', and 'Never dismiss anyone or anything'. Born in Winnipeg and growing up in Saskatchewan and Vancouver, Garth began an electrical apprenticeship at RCA in Toronto during 1938. In 1940 he enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force and was seconded to the Royal Air Force where his technical brilliance was applied to the then secret U.K.-based radar initiative. Returning to Canada in 1945 he rejoined RCA and married Dorothy LOVELL in 1946. A chance television repair job for Syd WELSH lead to a three way partnership with Bud SHEPARD in the early fifties pioneering Cable television in Canada. His technical knowledge and skills were employed in wiring the mountain communities of British Columbia, including antenna sites surveyed on foot, by packhorse, boat, jeep, helicopter, and snowmobile. By the 1960s, this visionary trio, and others too many to mention, brought Cable television to the major urban centres of Canada and around the world including the U.S.A., Ireland, and the United Kingdom, garnering the respect of governments and business partners such as CBS. In 1971 the Welsh companies formed Premier Cablevision Limited which was eventually purchased by Rogers Cable of Toronto. Garth's 'retirement' in 1981 was hardly ever that(!) as he offered his skills, enthusiasm, and insight to support Rick Hansen's dream to wheel around the world and such organizations as the British Columbia and Canadian Paraplegic Associations, Vancouver Rotary and finally the Shaughnessy Stroke Recovery Club. Golf both in Vancouver and Palm Springs was always in the 'fore'. Always busy, always involved, always offering, always there… Garth was always 'doing something' and led by example to create and fix things rather than just offer words. A private Celebration of Garth's life will be held amongst his dear family and Friends. The family thanks the volunteers and members of the Shaughnessy Stroke Recovery Club and other stroke support services in Vancouver for enabling Garth to maintain his independence since his wn stroke in 1996. Moreover, we give honourable mention to the staff at Vancouver General Hospital, University of British Columbia Health Sciences and Providence Health Care, in particular staff at the Brock Fahrni facility for the wonderful care and attention Garth received over the past year. In lieu of flowers, donations should be made to one of Garth's proudest and greatest achievements, the British Columbia Paraplegic Foundation (780…S.W. Marine Drive, Vancouver, British Columbia V6P 5Y7) of which he was a founding visionary over 30 years ago.

FARQUHAR--In loving memory of a cherished husband and sadly missed Father, Grandfather and Great Grandfather, John Farquhar, who passed away on February 13, 2005.
God looked around His garden and
He found an empty space
He then looked down upon the earth
And saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you
And lifted you to rest,
God's garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering
He knew that you would never
Get well on earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough,
And the hills were hard to climb,
So he closed your weary eyelids
And whispered, "Peace be thine."
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn't go alone
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.
Always loved and sadly missed by wife Freda, children Jack (Darlene), Peggy (Gerry), Mike (Marilyn), Steve (Margaret), (daughter in-law Georgina), and families.

Barrie woman charged with murdering her children
Family embroiled in bitter custody battle
By Gregory BONNELL and Allison JONES / The Canadian Press
A troubled mother embroiled in a court battle over custody of her two young daughters was facing murder charges Wednesday after police discovered the girls dead in a west-end apartment.
An early-morning phone call summoned police to the apartment, where they made an emotional and grisly discovery: the bodies of a one-year-old girl and her three-year-old sister.
Also in the apartment was the mother of the victims, 31-year-old Frances Elaine CAMPIONE, who was taken to hospital for a brief examination before she was charged with two counts of first-degree murder.
Residents of the building expressed shock and disbelief as they described seeing the girls playing outside; those who know their mother said the family was in the midst of a bitter custody dispute. "Nobody would help her, it seemed like," said one of the building's tenants, speaking on condition of anonymity. "She was reaching out for help and she was struggling.
She was having a hard time."
CAMPIONE, whom the neighbour said lived in shelter before recently moving into the apartment complex, was scheduled to appear in family court today on what a judge would only describe as "family matters." She's now scheduled to appear in criminal court instead.
Sharon LYNN, whose daughter lives in the building and is a good friend of CAMPIONE, said it's impossible for strangers to understand what she's been going through.
"(She) was tormented and nobody saw the signs," said LYNN. "( Imagine) you are so desperate that you actually kill your children, to take away the pain to send them to be with the Lord."
"The little girls are precious, their eyes would light up," she continued. "My little grand_son (said he) was going to marry her (oldest daughter)."
CAMPIONE called 911 at about 6: 15 a.m. Wednesday "to notify us that there were two children dead in the apartment," Barrie police Insp. Jim FARRELL said.
The sight of the bodies being removed from the building on adult-size stretchers proved emotional for one officer on the scene. "To see two young bodies being brought out definitely choked me up," said Sgt. Dave GOODBRAND.
"I can only imagine what officers and staff had to face when they saw those children… three and one, they're very innocent and it's very difficult."
Police did not release the names of the girls or how they were killed. Post-mortem examinations were expected to take place Thursday in Toronto.
Neighbours walking their dogs in the small park beside the building said they would see the girls there every day.
"Last Sunday, one little girl was out in the yard looking for a prince," said Reid, who declined to give his last name.
When asked about the mother, Reid replied: "She kept to herself."
Another neighbour, John LAINE, said he didn't know the family well but he recalled seeing the two girls playing in a park outside the apartment building.
"They were happy, go-lucky kids," he said.
The Toronto Star reported on its website that the father lives with his parents in Woodbridge, Ontario - a suburb northwest of Toronto where he lived with CAMPIONE and the two girls before their marriage fell apart.
Neighbours identified the father as Leo CAMPIONE, a hard-working, soft-spoken construction worker who loved nothing more than time with his children, the Star reported.
"He wanted to work things out for the kids, and he loved his wife, too," said neighbour Elisa RIZZO, a grandmother who watched Leo CAMPIONE grow up on the street, fall in love, then suffer through marital breakdown.
"He's a very good guy," "she told the Star. "Always kept his nose clean. Very respectful."

Mark FARRELL, Newspaper Publisher (1913-2006)
Controversial top man at The Windsor Star and the Montreal Gazette was never reluctant to skewer sacred cows, but always remained a stickler for truth and integrity
By Douglas McARTHUR, Special to Globe and Mail, Page S11
Toronto -- Mark FARRELL arrived as publisher of The Windsor Star in 1969, driving a green Volkswagen Beetle festooned with flower decals. His young daughters, who put them on, had assured him they would easily wash off. They didn't, and the splashy foreign car, in the home of Chrysler Canada, was to become a symbol of a brash new direction for the previously staid newspaper.
During his four years in Windsor, Mr. FARRELL gave the Star's editorial support to the New Democratic Party in the 1972 federal election, the first time any Canadian newspaper had endorsed the party, and organized one of the country's first press councils.
As publisher of the Montreal Gazette, from late 1972 to 1977, he supported language rights for French-speaking Quebeckers and encouraged an era of award-winning investigative journalism. Earlier in his career, he supervised the building of Canada's largest rotogravure printing plant for Standard Publishing in Montreal, and played a key role in creating two of the most-read publications in the country's history, Weekend and Perspectives magazines.
A left-leaning social democrat from his days at McGill University, Mark FARRELL was never reluctant to skewer sacred cows, but was a stickler for truth and integrity. He lived with a stammer he could not control, but never allowed it to hold him back. In his personal time, he was an avid outdoorsman and expert skier, a caring family man and a lover of black poodles.
"Mark was every reporter's dream of what a publisher should be," says Tim Creery, editorial page editor of the Montreal Gazette under Mr. FARRELL. "He stood up to advertising and political pressure on editorial content. He applauded vigorous and deep-digging reporting. He encouraged outspoken editorials favouring the interests of ordinary people and denouncing privilege."
The second of four sons of Montreal stockbroker Gerald FARRELL and the former Eileen O'MEARA, Mark FARRELL was born into money. When he was 6, his father died. The boy attended Selwyn House, a private school in Montreal for a few years until his mother moved the family to England, where he and two brothers went to Ampleforth College, a prestigious Catholic boys' boarding school that their father had attended. In his unpublished memoirs, written with Mr. Creery's assistance, Mr. FARRELL described being the only boy since the school started to receive a caning of 13 strokes.
Returning to Canada, he earned a commerce degree at McGill University, yet the only diploma he ever posted on his office wall was from a six-week sociology course at Moscow University's American Institute. During the Depression, he turned a $5,000 inheritance into nearly $20,000 on the stock market and then lost it all. At the same time, he worked for free as managing editor of Canadian Forum, a left-leaning intellectual magazine, and as treasurer of the Ontario branch of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation, the predecessor of the New Democratic Party.
After becoming a chartered accountant, he was hired as promotion manager at Montreal Standard Publishing Co. He married his first wife, Joanna WRIGHT, on the eve of the Second World War, but was turned down by the military because of his stammer. Instead, he worked for the British Air Commission in New York, where he became internal auditor and signed cheques totalling $1.5-billion for British purchases of U.S. aircraft and supplies. Returning to Standard Publishing, he became a director and the right-hand man of John McConnell, son of owner J.W. McConnell.
At Standard, he supervised the construction of a state-of-the-art rotogravure printing plant and helped found Weekend and Perspectives, weekly English and French magazines that were carried in Saturday editions of newspapers across the country. Their combined circulation of 2.5-million was a Canadian record.
After separating from his first wife in the late 1940s, Mr. FARRELL married Florence WALL, a Weekend employee, in 1952. In 1969, Mr. FARRELL was hired to run The Windsor Star after two members of the owning GRAYBIEL family died in quick succession. According to his memoirs, he accepted the offer, which he had previously turned down, after being squeezed out in a power struggle at Standard Publishing. Told to act as through he owned The Windsor Star, he redesigned its layout, sponsored a regular broadcast on U.S. Public Television in Detroit to tell Americans about Canada, and made Peter BENESH, an immigrant from Czechoslovakia, a member of the editorial board at the age of 23. Mr. BENESH recalls his boss regularly quoting H.L. Mencken's adage: "A journalist's job is to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable."
While at the Star in 1971, Mr. FARRELL set up a press council to consider local complaints. It became the model for the Ontario Press Council. He also led a successful editorial campaign to bring Windsor's U.S.-owned CKLW radio station into Canadian hands, says Hugh NANGLE, who served under Mr. FARRELL on the editorial boards in both Windsor and Montreal. In 1972, the Southam newspaper chain transferred Mr. FARRELL to Montreal.
Under Mr. FARRELL, The Windsor Star was the first large daily to support the New Democratic Party in a federal election, and the first to call for legalization of marijuana and abortion, Mr. NANGLE says. Mr. FARRELL also curtailed the influence of the Liberal Party over The Windsor Star and of the Conservative Party over the Gazette, he says. Under Mr. FARRELL, the Gazette supported the aspirations of Quebec nationalists, but not calls for separation.
"He was a patrician and had the air of a patrician," says Henry Aubin, an award-winning investigative reporter under Mr. FARRELL and now a Gazette columnist. "He could take on the anglo establishment as one of their own on equal terms. He could have been one of the boys." Mr. Aubin credits Mr. FARRELL with supporting investigative reporting and helping the staff set up a code of ethics for reporters.
Mr. FARRELL had a showdown with The Windsor Star's mechanical unions in 1970, when they staged a two-week sit-in strike in the pressroom. According to James BRUCE, then assistant city editor and later the Star's editor and publisher, Mr. FARRELL staged a sit-in of his own by staying in his office. Publication resumed in two weeks, thanks to a federal labour mediator.
A Time magazine article from the mid-seventies called the Gazette "Canada's most improved newspaper," thanks to Mr. FARRELL and his predecessor, Denis Harvey. It credited Mr. FARRELL with increasing the news budget by 40 per cent in two years, adding editorial staff and hiring managing editor Lindsay Crysler, who launched an era of investigative journalism, and Tim Creery, who gave the editorial and op-ed pages "some bite."
Terry Mosher, the Gazette's editorial cartoonist who signs his drawings Aislin, says Mr. FARRELL gave permission for him to run some controversial pieces early in his career. One of the Queen resulted in the publication of three days of angry letters from readers. Mr. FARRELL left the Gazette in 1977, moving with his wife to a ski property in Stowe, Vt. Later, they moved to Morrisville, Vt. In his retirement, he continued his passion for downhill skiing until 85. His greatest thrill came in 1970, when he did Switzerland's Haute Route, a hut-to-hut trek that involves downhill and cross-country skiing and climbing. Mr. FARRELL talked about social issues even at home, says Willa FARRELL, the youngest of his three daughters. When she was a child, she recalls him lamenting that the newspaper industry was built on the child labour of carrier boys.
Norman Redlich, a former dean of law at New York University and a long-time vacation friend in Vermont, says Mr. FARRELL once told him that the U.S. First Amendment protecting freedom of the press is an old whore that should be retired. "His point was: If you can't verify it, don't print it," Mr. Redlich says. "I've always thought it was an excellent thing for a publisher to say."
Mark FARRELL was born in Montreal on January 22, 1913.
He died of pneumonia on April 6, 2006, in Morrisville, Vt. He was 93. He is survived by his wife, Florence, and their daughters Fiona FARRELL and Willa FARRELL.
He also leaves Sally KININMONTH, his daughter from his marriage to Joanna WRIGHT, several grandchildren and his brother, Charles. An infant son, Mark, died after one day in 1957.

Barrie mom faced custody hearing
Girls, 1 and 3, found dead at home
Family court appearance set for today
By Jim WILKES and Jessica LEEDER, Staff Reporters with files from Peter EDWARDS
Barrie -- Friends say a woman charged with killing her two young daughters feared she was about to lose them in a bitter custody battle with her estranged husband.
The latest chapter in the custody dispute was to have played out in family court today, but yesterday's slayings of Sophia CAMPIONE, 3, and her year-old sister Serena have brought that hearing to a tragic end.
Frances Elaine CAMPIONE, 31, will instead face two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of the blond-haired tots who one friend described as "perfect little angels."
Neighbours in the 13-storey apartment building on Coulter Street, a stone's thrown from Bayfield St. and Highway 400 in Barrie's north end, were stunned by news that police had found the children dead when they answered an emergency call shortly after 6 a.m. yesterday.
Insp. Jim FARRELL said CAMPIONE had placed a 911 call reporting "two dead children inside an apartment."
As officers stood watch over the slain youngsters' bodies, CAMPIONE was taken to Royal Victoria Hospital for a medical examination and then moved to police headquarters for questioning.
Police were awaiting the results of autopsies today to learn how the children were killed.
"It's a sad day for the city of Barrie," FARRELL said.
CAMPIONE had moved to the apartment, behind the huge Bayfield Mall, a few months ago after separating from her husband, Leo, who was living with his parents in Woodbridge.
Neighbours said Children's Aid Society workers had visited her twice in recent weeks as she prepared for today's custody hearing.
Some recalled seeing the little girls running in the hallways of the building or holding on to their mother in the elevators.
"They were the sweetest little girls that you've ever seen in your life -- tiny, petite and well-behaved," said neighbour Cathie MORGAN, 50. "The mother always took such good care of them. They were always dressed in princess dresses."
MORGAN said she was struggling to understand how anyone could take two precious, innocent lives.
CAMPIONE was a "woman who was tormented," said friend Sharon LYNN, who wiped tears from red-rimmed eyes as she placed flowers outside the building late yesterday afternoon.
LYNN said CAMPIONE was struggling to cope with a life that was "so bad.
"That mother needs a hug," she said. "She needs to know that people love her."
John KERR said he last saw the mother and daughters in an elevator a day earlier.
"She's not a happy woman," said KERR, 37. "I've never ever seen that woman smile.
"She was not a happy person at all."
A resident of the Woodbridge neighbourhood where Leo CAMPIONE grew up said the girls' mother went into a deep depression after the birth of her second child last year.
She said the mother dropped the children off at her in-laws, saying she couldn't deal with them.
At one point, she didn't even want to see the kids, so the grandmother took them in, the neighbour said.
One neighbour on the Woodbridge street where the dead girl's grandparents live collapsed when she heard the news of the slayings.
Other neighbours described the girls' father as a hard-working, soft-spoken construction worker who loved to spend time with his children.
"He loved his kids," said Elisa RIZZO, a grandmother who watched Leo CAMPIONE grow up on the street, fall in love, then suffer through marriage break-up.
"He wanted to work things out for the kids, and he loved his wife too," said RIZZO.
Family members guarded the grandparents' door from the media as red-eyed neighbours dropped in to pay their respects.
Neighbours said the girls' grandparents loved to walk the girls through the neighbourhood where many families have lived for a quarter-century.
"They would walk them every day," one said.
"They loved to take them to the park and to church," said another.
The building where the slayings took place is operated by the Barrie Municipal Non-Profit Housing Corporation, which provides geared-to-income and full-market-rate units.
Ann HARVEY, the corporation's community relations manager, said she had met the family and described the two dead girls as "very sweet."
"The whole family was very wonderful -- gentle, sweet people," she said. "They were nice young children.
"There's just sadness, just overwhelming sadness."
Barrie had just two homicides in 2005.
"Barrie doesn't see too many homicides in a year," said Sgt. Dave GOODBRAND. "To make it two children, it touches the hearts of everybody.
"It's going to take some time for people to try to consume why this occurred," he said. "Hopefully we'll have some answers for the public in time to come.
"There's still a lot of legwork that has to be done by investigators."
GOODBRAND said he was moved as he watched the youngsters' bodies removed from the building.
"It chokes me up," he said. "I have two children about the same ages.
"I can't imagine anything like this. It would be my worst nightmare."
