MOE, Roy Ingram
By Glenda MacNAUGHTON; Avery HAINES, Page A14
Husband, father, grandfather, television pioneer. Born December 25, 1920 in Aylmer, Ontario Died April 17 at home in Gilford, Ontario, of natural causes, aged 85.
Roy Ingram MOE was born at Christmas, a nice little present for his folks. He was a gift that kept on giving, especially for his sister Barbara who came along 18 months later. Barbara calls Roy her hero, the one who didn't say much but who was always there when needed. Their childhood was marked by many ups and downs complicated by their mother's chronic illness. There were lots of moves. To Port Dover for fresher air. To Port Bruce -- and back to Aylmer.
When Roy and Barbara were teenagers, they moved to Galt. Roy soon settled into high-school and was becoming known for his talent at the arena, not for hockey -- but for dancing on roller skates. Roy was a regular Fred Astaire on wheels, tossing the girls up in the air and over his shoulder like a pro. Some Toronto scouts even asked him to perform in the big city.
Unfortunately, this did not prove to be Roy's ticket to the Sports Hall of Fame. But it did usher in a passion for mastering all kinds of sports throughout his life. Swimming, water skiing, sailing, golf, downhill and cross-country skiing. And, at the age of 78, he took up surfing (the Internet, that is).
Shortly after the start of the Second World War, Roy joined the air force. Five years of war service in England gave Roy an appreciation for lots of things: Teamwork, dedication, patience and just plain being alive. Roy always said he was glad he turned down the chance to be a tail-gunner and opted for the job of radar operator.
Back at home Roy worked for CHUM Radio and later the pioneer television station Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Toronto he also met and married Norene. They soon had a family of three and were living in the one of the first suburbs of Toronto, Don Mills.
By 1971, Roy was on his own again, he called on Lucille ESSAM. They married in October 1971 and Roy became Dad to a second family two teenagers, Doug and Lee and nine-year-old Steven.
Roy was handsome. His co-workers called him the Silver Bullet because of his trademark silver locks, which had appeared when he was in his late twenties.
Roy was proud to have done technical production in the early days of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television. Everything was live, no retakes. Over the course of 25 years he did The Hit Parade, The Tommy Hunter Show, Royal visits, broadcasts of the Olympics, skating championships, the first live broadcast from the Arctic and Hockey Night in Canada with Foster Hewitt.
Retirement from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation only lasted so long and he was lured back to the bright lights, this time at TVO. Finally retiring for good Roy used his spare time to travel, fix the house, build a garden and help Lucille look after her dad.
As Roy's eyesight diminished to almost zero, he learned to make the disability disappear. He sat at his computer and felt his way along the keyboard to keep in touch with the rest of the world. If he couldn't read the fine print, so what? The world still offered Benny Goodman's big-band sound. There were still people to love, dogs to pat, squirrels to feed, chocolates to eat and maybe even a trip to try on something new at Eddie Bauer. So much do, so little time.
Quiet fellows can sometimes be overlooked if they just quickly pass you by. But gems like Roy just grow on you. And in his case, familiarity breeds respect, admiration and love. Roy was a keeper weren't we lucky to have kept him for so many wonderful years?
Glenda is Roy's sister-in-law, Avery his daughter-in-law.

ESSEY, Shirley
In loving memory of a Cherished Mother and Grandmother Shirley ESSEY, October 31, 2001.
Five years ago today,
God came and took you away,
You said, "You wanted to go home",
At least we know you're not alone.
We all miss you so very much,
Your smile, your laugh, your soft gentle touch,
There is not a day that goes by,
The we don't look up to the sky,
And say, "We miss you".
Forever loved and sadly missed, Joan, Jennifer, Jodi and families.
