KROBOTH, Josef
By Walter Michael KROBOTH, Page A20
Artisan, husband, father, "opa," dedicated employee, winemaker. Born January 8, 1929, in Oberradling, a village on the border of Austria and Hungary. Died September 29, 2005, in Toronto, of cancer, aged 76.
Sitting still was something that Joe KROBOTH rarely did.
I cannot recall a time when Joe did not have at least one project in the works. He designed and built the family cottage, his home was well maintained, his garden was immaculate, and every autumn he made wine.
The importance of hard work, responsibility and resilience was something Joe learned early in life. Growing up during the Great Depression and the Second World War, his day consisted of farm chores before school and assisting his father, the village shoemaker, in the evening.
Near the end of the war, women and children were evacuated from the village, but Joe stayed behind to help his father protect family property. He witnessed hand-to-hand combat and helped dig graves and bury the dead.
At 17, Joe left home to attend trade school, becoming a master shoemaker and winning a top prize for his hand-stitched shoes. A true artisan, Joe would later tell me that his skills were honed during his youth, when his father would disassemble his work and make him redo it until the workmanship was exact.
By the 1950s, Joe was established in his trade but looking for opportunities in North America.
In October, 1954, he emigrated to Canada and settled in Toronto, where Hurricane Hazel had just devastated the city. Joe's first job was with a clean-up crew. He went on to do piecework at a shoe factory but the job did not allow him to be a craftsman.
Frustrated, Joe travelled to Kapuskasing, Ontario, with a friend, to secure work as a lumberjack. The logging-camp foreman initially turned him down because he said Joe -- at 5-foot-5 and 138 pounds was too small to handle the work. Joe asked for a chance to show his stuff.
Utilizing a vice-like grip and sinewy strength, along with the ability to handle logging tools, Joe quickly felled and bucked a tree. He got the job. For nine months, Joe worked dawn to dusk six days a week, saving enough money to later start a business and put a down payment on a house.
In 1958, he married Josefa STEBEGG and the two went on to open Joe's General Shoe Repair in west Toronto -- and start a family.
By 1964, however, it was clear that the shoe-repair business was no longer viable. With three children, Joe opted for the security of a factory job. For 30 years, he made medicinal products, never missing a day of work.
Despite life's challenges, Joe always maintained a sense of humour. The consummate family man, Joe enjoyed skating and tobogganing with my sisters and me and built us a tree house and a playhouse. Joe also became a doting grandfather, making rocking horses, with hand-carved faces, for my two daughters.
Despite being a smoker since his teens, Joe never lacked energy or endurance. In 1988, a friend and I helped Joe build a septic system at the cottage. Each man had to dig a trench. We were 29; he was 59. A couple of hours into the job, Joe took a cigarette break so we could catch up.
After retiring in 1994, Joe stayed active helping neighbours with projects, further solidifying his reputation as a handyman.
A day before he passed, Joe told me that he felt a little "tired" and would need help making this year's batch of wine. Not surprisingly, he never stopped thinking about his next project.
Walter is Josef's son.

John Creighton DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS, Engineer: (1924-2006)
Unsung hero of Canada's Imax success story knew how to make the big-screen technology work
By M.J. STONE, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Montreal -- He was the man in the engine room of the good ship Imax. John Creighton DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS was an engineering guru, a genius at tinkering who was the brains behind making the Imax corporation's giant-screen technology work as well as it did. Years before, he was the wizard who helped keep Expo 67's Labyrinth film project going. And when it was all over, Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS went back to his first love -- the humble train.
In the meantime, his other passion remained electronics. As a teenager during the Depression, Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS's future in telecommunications was foreshadowed when he plied his talent for radio repair in the small town of Sutton in Quebec's Eastern Townships. Neighbours and customers paid 25 cents to have their wonky Radiolas, RCA Victors and Silvertones tinkered back into working order.
At 18, poor eyesight disqualified him from serving in any of the Canadian armed forces during the Second World War. At the suggestion of doctors who advised he spend less time in libraries with his head buried in books, he worked for a year with the Canadian Pacific Railroad and then enrolled at McGill University.
It was while earning his degree in science that he met his wife, Althea McCOY, a likeminded student who became his life-long collaborator. They were both involved in the McGill drama department. Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS was in charge of lighting and his future wife was the costume co-ordinator. Their initial collaboration at the McGill Red and White Revue revealed a symbiotic relationship that would often find the couple working side by side."The smartest thing I ever did was to marry him," said writer and archivist Althea DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS. "Creighton was my favourite proof reader and copy editor."
The couple married in 1948 and the following year he departed for a career in the Quebec wilderness repairing radio transmitters for Canadian Marconi. He later travelled to England, sent by Marconi, to study the emerging world of television.
When the couple returned to Canada, Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS began demonstrating the principles of television at trade fairs. With both of them operating a camera, the duo wowed Toronto audiences at the Canadian National Exhibition in 1950. Althea DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS recalled how aiming the camera at the crowds delighted visitors, who, through closed-circuit monitors, discovered themselves on television for the first time. Commercial television was still a few years away and she lays claim that the experience at the Canadian National Exhibition made her Canada's first female operator of a television camera.
Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS's cutting-edge knowledge of the new medium resulted in work as a consultant with the Canadian Broadcasting Company when it first went on the air in 1952. Later, he returned to Canadian Marconi as the engineering manager for Montreal's CFCF radio and in 1961, he supervised the construction of a television transmission tower. Erected at the top of Mount Royal, it broadcast the first television signals when CFCF-television at last went on the air.
Regarded as a technical genius, Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS was the go-to person hired by the National Film Board of Canada to orchestrate the Labyrinth project for the 1967 world's fair in Montreal. A multiscreen film, In the Labyrinth, was a smash hit at Expo and is considered the precursor to today's large-format films. Using a complicated projection system with three synchronized viewing chambers, it featured stereo sound and a mirrored maze.
Colin Low, the National Film Board of Canada's former head of animation, said that Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS possessed the right mix of flexibility and vigour necessary to handle the madness that In the Labyrinth inspired. "A lot of things, we had never tried before. Creighton was intrigued by it. He made it work. Labyrinth was one of the starting points for Imax technology."
Imax was a revolution in the movie industry. What made it arrestingly different was the sheer size and crispness of the projected image, combined with resonant, multitrack sound systems. No matter what the subject, watching can be viscerally intense -- a fact that directors have exploited with roller-coaster intensity ever since the first Imax title, North of Superior, lit up the media. The format uses the largest film frame in movie history, 10 times the size of conventional 35-mm film. The screens, too, were oversized, as tall as eight storeys.
The system was the brainchild of five Canadian visionaries who toiled for more than a quarter of a century to make Imax Corp. a household word in entertainment. Graeme FERGUSON, Robert KERR, Roman KROITOR, Bill SHAW and Bill BREUKELMAN founded Imax and pioneered the giant-screen, large-format film medium before selling the technology in 1994 to a group of American investors for about $100-million (U.S.).
All the same, few knew the system better than Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS. In 1981, Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS found himself in France supervising the installation of a new generation of Imax screens. His final Imax project was to co-ordinate the installation of the company's theatre at the Museum of Civilization.
In retirement, he returned to the much less complicated technology of locomotives, and the tracks they travelled down. His interest also left its mark on his marriage, for his wife possessed railway roots of her own ("My father worked for the Canadian National Railway," she said), and together they co-wrote Canadian Railway Records: A Guide for Genealogists, a resource for families with rail connections going back about 150 years.
The DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS manual, composed for family historians, offers tips and resources for recovering historical records of family members via ticket sales and the vast network of railway payrolls, journals, magazines and subsidiary companies. In the introduction, the couple wrote, "this book has been a joint effort but we each have our own areas of expertise. Creighton wrote much of the material on the railway way of life, working conditions and so on. Althea did the archival work checking documents and bibliographical data and wrote about libraries and archives so, inevitably, on occasion we wrote in the first person singular and at other times in the first person plural."
Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS also added a consumer warning: "The railway offers such a variety of intriguing information and experience that there is some aspect that will intrigue almost everyone." In other words, railways are highly addictive and can absorb all your free time and available money.
John Creighton DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS was born on August 15, 1924, in Cowansville, Quebec He died of a congestive heart failure on February 6, 2006 in Ottawa. He is survived by his wife.
