LYON, Ronald D.
Father, grandfather, importer, retailer, gambler, horseman, community servant. Born July 27, 1910 in Toronto. Died October 7 in Toronto, of a stroke, aged 96.
By Dan LYON, Page A16
There was something old-fashioned about Ron, but in a good way. In an era when many of us don't get around to getting to know our neighbours, he would reach out and earn lasting, meaningful Friendships in the neighbourhood, at work, on his travels, or while making a contribution to the community.
Ron's father, Sol, was an auctioneer, with a background in circus, vaudeville and Wild West shows. Early on, father and son worked together in the auction and retail business, with a linen and gift store at Yonge and Charles streets in Toronto, and a very successful summer store in the resort town of Crystal Beach. In the 1950s, Ron closed the stores to focus on an import business, Elite Linens Ltd., which specialized in merchandise from China.
Ron married and had children in his mid-40s. His children knew that he was a businessman, but every once in a while he would surprise them with evidence of unusual talents. One of the children's earliest memories was at a birthday party for the kids, when Ron was in his mid-fifties. He borrowed a young guest's bicycle and proceeded to ride it up and down the block -- backwards, sitting on the handlebars.
Where did he learn to do that? Family and Friends heard many intriguing and mysterious stories over the years, most of which involved horses rather than bicycles: trick riding as a child in his dad's Wild West Show, later exercising his uncle's horse Morvich who won the Kentucky Derby in 1922, steeplechase as a young man. Eventually, Ron traded the horses for dogs and skis, and he even claimed to have trained one of his Samoyeds to ski.
Ron enjoyed business travel to China and Europe, but he was also drawn by the adrenalin rush of gaming, to casinos in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Monaco, Puerto Rico and London. He greatly appreciated talent, and enjoyed the showrooms almost as much baccarat and craps.
Ron was a master of several lost arts, including sleight-of-hand (also known as slipping the maitre-d' a big enough tip to get the best booth in the showroom) and interrogation (also known as determining during a 10-minute taxi ride where the cabbie was born, what his parents did for a living and whether or not he intends to marry his current girlfriend). He was a master at finding a personal connection with people from all backgrounds.
Ron had tremendous style, class and an infectious joie de vivre. He was not overly materialistic, but he did derive great pleasure from having a house on one of Toronto's best streets (which he bought mainly because the children loved the country-style backyard). He took pride in well-chosen antiques, good suits, shined shoes, and a rather flashy big black 1966 Jaguar Mark 10 which he had apparently either bought from a gangster or (more likely) won in a card game.
Here are some of the lessons Ron taught his children by example: Be charming. Be curious. Be a little mysterious. Be devoted to your parents, family and Friends. Be fearless. Express your opinions even if others are being dismissive. Be aware of the world around you; on days that you don't have time to read every article in the daily newspaper, at least watch Larry King on CNN. Learn how to tell a joke or story properly, to entertain Friends and strangers. Turn a stranger into a friend. Get out into the world, travel, do something athletic… or at least sit by the pool. Have fun. Make a good living and spend most -- but not all -- of your money. Do something unique: teach the dog to ski. Be talented, but more importantly, be respectful and even awed by the talents of others.
Dan LYON is Ron's son.

TARKANYI, Nancy Kathleen -- Dispatch:
By Jeffrey HAWKINS, Page M6
Nancy TARKANYI loved to dance. Ballet, ballroom, stage -- you name it, she did it all.
Her elegance and determination even caught the eye of a Life magazine photographer when she was 16 and performing across England with a travelling theatre production of Snow White.
Nancy Kathleen WOODALL was born in Stockport, England, on October 5, 1930, and essentially she lived two successful lives.
In her early life, she enjoyed a career as a performer, winning numerous trophies, medals and certificates during the 1950s for her work in productions staged everywhere from London to Paris.
That was before a young waiter, Joszef TARKANYI, working at a dance club where she was performing, asked her to marry him (she said yes) -- and she emigrated with him to Canada.
Settling in Toronto, Mrs. TARKANYI left behind the theatre for a career at the Ontario Workmen's Compensation Board, where each year she helped to organize elaborate staff Christmas parties that are still fondly remembered.
"She had a way about her that everyone noticed," recalls Josephine LYONS, a cousin of hers.
"She was a very determined and opinionated woman, but she had such elegance in everything she did."
In fact, in the weeks before her death, Mrs. TARKANYI astounded the hospital staff at St. Joseph's Health Centre with her determination, as she continued her daily ritual of leg stretches.
"It must have seemed odd to them, but that's just the kind of confidence she had with herself and her body," said her cousin's husband, Bob LYONS.
Nancy TARKANYI died on February 4. She was 75.
