STARR, Michael 2000 -- Died This Day
Politician born on November 14, 1910, in Copper Cliff, near Sudbury, Ontario
The son of Ukrainian immigrants, he attended school in Montreal and Oshawa and, in 1928, found a job as a clerk and soon developed an interest in politics. He first ran for office in 1937 and was finally elected as an alderman in 1944. Five years later, he became mayor of Oshawa, the same year that then-prime minister Louis SSAINTURENT visited the city and went away impressed by the mayor's intense popularity. On tours of the city, children virtually ignored the head of government, running beside the car and calling, "Hiya Mike." The Liberal Party tried to interest him in running in a federal election, but he was a committed Tory. In 1952, he was elected member of Parliament for Oshawa and went on to serve as labour minister under John DIEFENBAKER in 1957. He remained in the job until the Conservatives were defeated in 1963. A popular politician with a reputation for fairness, he was the first federal cabinet minister of Ukrainian descent. In 1957, he was named Ukrainian of the Year for North America and, in 1958, when he was invited to Italy by its government, he had an audience with Pope Pius Twelfth. In 1968, he lost his seat to Ed BROADBENT, and was made a judge of the Citizenship Court for York and Barrie. He was later appointed to a variety of Ontario and federal task forces.

REA, Carolyn (née STARR)
My darling wife, Carolyn, died on Monday, May 1, 2006 at St. Joseph's Health Centre, Toronto after a courageous fight with cancer. Beloved wife of David Leonard REA. Loving mother to Katy REA, Patrick REA (Manuela SANTOS) and John REA (Bridget HOURIHAN.) Eternally proud "Nanna" to David Francis REA. Dear sister of Michael STARR (Donna) and Martha DAVIS (Alfred) and sister-in-law of Carolyn MARTIN (Henry) and Dianne SSAINTUIS. Daughter of the late Nelles and Catherine Margaret (FROST) STARR. Cherished Auntie to 10 nieces and nephews. Carolyn's life was marked by her deep devotion to her homelife. Her husband of 45 years, her children and grandchild were the world to her. Her Friends, and there were many, are a testament to her steady, loyal and loving character. She played a mean hand of bridge. She revelled in a fresh picked basket of blueberries and noodling in the lake. Comfort was a cat on her lap. Escapism was equally a trashy spy novel or a night of theatre. She knew all the great swing dance steps and moved with grace. She found something in common with even the most uncommon people. Her strength was boundless and when life struck her youngest down with a grave illness, she suited up for battle and crusaded with one hand while stroking his brow to ally his fears with the other. Her blue eyes could charm even the hardest of hearts. Her home was her castle; her cottage her sanctuary. We will miss you very much. A private family service was held at the Turner and Porter, Yorke Chapel, Toronto, Thursday, May 4, 2006. A service to celebrate Carolyn's life will be held on Thursday, May 11, 2006 at The Old Mill, 21 Old Mill Road, Toronto. Service at 11: 30 a.m. with reception to follow. We would like to send a special thank you to all the members of Saint_Joseph's Palliative Support Team, who brought kindness, comfort and dignity to her last days. In Carolyn's memory, memorial donations may be made to Saint_Joseph's Health Centre, Palliative Care Fund, 30 The Queensway, Toronto, Ontario, M6R 1B5. (416) 530-6704.

LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY, Doctor Robert Neil
Dr. R. Neil LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY, noted consultant to the pool industry in Canada and the United States, passed suddenly Tuesday, March 28, 2006. The Newmarket, Ontario, resident had just returned home from a day-long session at a Toronto hotel teaching water chemistry to pool operators when he collapsed. He was 67. At the time of his death, Doctor LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY was serving as principal-in-charge of Lowry and Associates, a nationwide distributor of specialty chemicals which has exclusive representation of Taylor Technologies' water-testing products in Canada; owner and chief educator for the Lowry School of Pool and Spa Chemistry; and a contributing writer and commentator for numerous trade publications, most notably Pool and Spa Marketing magazine. He was an active member of the Pool and Hot Tub Council of Canada and the only Canadian voting member of the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals' Recreational Water Quality Committee whose water quality guidelines are followed by public pools and spas throughout North and South America. He also served as an advisor to the board of directors of the Professional Pool Operators of America. Doctor LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY's ability to make a complicated subject understandable for the average person was coupled with an enthusiasm for his subject matter that most people could not resist, and this made him a sought-after public speaker. Most recently he took part in a panel discussion on preventing recreational water illnesses at the 26th annual Canadian Pool and Spa Conference in Toronto. Said Richard HUBBARD, the Markham, Ontario-based publisher of Pool and Spa Marketing, 'Neil was one of the pool industry's finest and most respected educators, and one of its greatest Friends. He was passionately devoted to elevating the understanding of water chemistry among aquatic facility managers, public health inspectors, and pool builders, service companies, and pool supplies retailers. He always said, 'Over ninety percent of pool problems are caused by poor water chemistry.' Without him, the level of discourse in our industry will be diminished.' His influence on Canada's $1.2-billion-a-year pool and spa industry is pervasive. Dr. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY contributed to the present regulations for public spas under the auspices of the Ontario Ministry of Health. He also designed the model labels for pool products regulated under the federal Pest Control Products Act. He was the original author of 'Pool and Spa Chemistry: A Testing and Treatment Guide,' widely regarded as the Bible of water quality management. Over the course of 26 years, thousands across Canada became certified pool water technicians by his pool school.
Robert Neil LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY was born in Windsor, Ontario, to Mac and Marjorie LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY and was a loving big brother to David Kent LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY and Lynda Jane PARKER. He earned a bachelor of science degree in chemistry from the University of Western Ontario in nearby London; a doctorate in inorganic chemistry from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York; and a master's in business administration from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. But Neil LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY was no ivory tower academic. He spent the early part of this career with three Canadian chemical companies: first in pool chemical sales at Kert Chemical Industries, Inc., then as pool chemical products manager at Swan Recreational Products Limited, and finally as technical services director for Mursatt Chemicals Limited. He established Lowry and Associates in 1985 with his wife Gabriele as his business partner. Lowry and Associates became the master distributor for Taylor Technologies in Canada in 1989, but the two firms' relationship goes back even further. 'Neil and I worked together for 26 years,' said a saddened Paul WOODEN, president of Taylor. 'He was more than a trusted business associate. He was a good friend to me, and to many others at Taylor. He was an incredibly smart man and so funny! We loved spending time with Neil at the end of a long day at a trade show; he kept us in stitches with his jokes and parlor tricks. His sudden passing has left us all numb with grief.' One of his Friends at Taylor was marketing Vice-President Patricia FITZGERALD. 'Dr. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY had a fierce intellect and a blunt manner of speaking that took some getting used to. He was an avid reader, a student of history, and always up on current events. In a debate of any kind he took no prisoners. But if he had the roar of a lion, he also had the heart,' FITZGERALD reminisced. 'I will miss him greatly.' He met Gabriele ADELMANN in Boston, Masssachusetts, and the pair married shortly thereafter in July 1972. While growing their business together they also grew a family, producing sons Michael and Derek, now ages 30 and 28 respectively, and daughter Sarah, age 17. He was a devoted husband and father. When Mackenzie, 3, Andrew, 18 months, and Erik, 1 month, were born to Michael and his wife Jennifer, the grandchildren became his pride and joy. Derek LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY and his spouse Sheila STARRETT are both involved in running Lowry and Associates; Michael LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY too is following in his father's footsteps by being a part of the industry. 'We all have not only lost a loving husband, father and grandfather we have also lost our very best friend.' A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Monday, April 3rd, at the Old Mill Inn, 21 Old Mill Road, Toronto, in the Brule A Room on the first floor (416-236-2641). All Friends and colleagues are welcome. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the First Church of Christ Scientist, Etobicoke, where Doctor LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY was a member. Arrangements entrusted to the Roadhouse and Rose Funeral Home, Newmarket, (905-895-6631), www.roadhouseandrose.com.
