THORSEN, Jan (October 18, 1932-October 26, 2007)
Jan passed away peacefully at his home in Victoria after fighting lung cancer for more than eight years. He died only because he had to. After graduating from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1955, Jan worked in Nigeria for Her Majesty's Overseas Service, then in a mixed practice out of Edmonton. Realizing his interests lay more in research and teaching, he earned a PhD in Medical Virology at the University of Toronto, and joined the faculty at Ontario Veterinary College as a professor of veterinary medicine. Jan is survived and adored by his wife, Ruth SLAVIN, his daughters, Lisa and her partner, Tom BARKER, of Hobart, Tasmania, and Michèle, of San Francisco; his brother, John, of Toronto and wife Beth and stepdaughters Christina McKIBBON, her husband, John and son, Nicholas, and Jennifer LAING and sons, James and Robin, all of Windsor, Ontario. He will be greatly missed by his large extended family and many Friends, including the members of the Vancouver Island Scottish Country Dance Society.
A memorial service will be held at Saint Martins In-the-Field church hall, 550 Obed Street, Victoria at 2: 00, Wednesday, October 31. In the near future, Jan's ashes will be interred in the Anderson/Thorsen plot in Little Lake Cemetery, Peterborough Ontario, and a memorial gathering will be held in Guelph, Ontario. Flowers are gratefully declined, but Jan's favourite charity is Doctors without Borders. Messages may be sent to ruthandjan@shaw.ca.

McKIMM, George Frederick
Passed away with his loving family at his side July 18, 2007, after a long struggle with pulmonary fibrosis. Beloved husband to Lil, father to George Jr., Anita, Bruce and Mayland, grandfather, greatgrandfather and uncle - words do not describe how much we will miss him. George was born in Smiths Falls, Ontario, April 29th, 1926. We know he will be dearly missed by his brother, Warden and sister, Sheila now living in Ottawa. On completion of his military service in 1945, he attended the University of Toronto and obtained his Bachelor of Commerce in 1948 after which he married his loving wife of 60 years, Lillian MAYLAND, then moved with her to Calgary, Alberta. In 1957, George studied law at the University of Alberta graduating with an LLB in 1960. Following articles he set up in private practice in Calgary forming Watkins and McKimm all the while creating great memories with his family and Friends in the mountains around Banff, camping, climbing, hiking and skiing. He and Lil moved to Sidney, British Columbia in 1971 to pursue George's life-long passion for sailing. In 1972, he opened his own law firm in Sidney (now known as McKimm and Lott) and enjoyed 20 years deeply entrenched in a career in which he so truly believed. He will also be sadly missed by all of his long standing staff from the Irish Linen Store in Calgary, the Emerald Isle Motel and Smitty's in Sidney, and the Inn On Long Lake in Nanaimo - he was always grateful for their loyalty and dedication - it did not go unnoticed. Among George's many and varied volunteer endeavours throughout his life, he rose to the rank of Regional Commander in the Canadian Power and Sail Squadron. His family sailing adventures took him from the coastal waters of British Columbia to Alaska, the coast of Maine to the Bay of Fundy, the Baltic Sea and the Greek Islands. The family would personally like to thank the caring and attentive staff at the Saanich Peninsula Hospital and the Royal Jubilee with special thanks to Doctor Cadger, Doctor Tetley, Marita, Clara and Rachel. We ask that condolences be through a private moment of reflection on George's life and what he meant to all of us or at gfmckimm@shaw.ca.

McKINLAY, Ronald Archibald
Born in Toronto in 1924. Suddenly, Monday evening, June 11, 2007 at Muskoka Mills, Georgian Bay -- his true heaven on earth. Loving husband, father, grandfather and brother. Survived by his wife, Hilda; children and spouses Henry and Yvonne McKINLAY, Mildred and Brian GILLESPIE, Ronald (Bill) and Kimberly McKINLAY, James McKINLAY and Gina ELSLEY, grandchildren Jennifer, Andrew, Calum and Darcy; brother Alan and sister Carol SCHNURR. He attended Lawrence Park Collegiate Institute and the University of Toronto, where he was one of the first group to pass through the University Naval Training Division at the University of Toronto before serving as an officer at sea in the Canadian Navy (Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve) during World War 2. In 1949 he was graduated with a B.A.Sc. from the Faculty of Engineering University of Toronto, and in 1952 with an M.Com. from the Business School at the University of Toronto, and subsequently became a Certified Management Accountant. He held positions in industry with The Canadian Kodak Co. Ltd., Reliance Electric (Canada) Ltd. and the Coffield Washing Machine Co. Ltd. Subsequently he was Industrial Advisor for the Bank of Montreal, dealing with problem commercial and industrial accounts from Newfoundland to British Columbia. In 1966 he joined The Clarkson Co. Ltd., the trustee wing of what was then Clarkson Gordon, where he stayed until his first retirement in 1985, the last three years as Chairman. At the time of the bank and trust company failures in the 1980s, he was asked to chair the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation, where he stayed for seven and a half years, dealing with the problems involved in those failures. He retired for the second time, in 1992, but was then asked to join the Newcourt Credit Group as Chairman, where he remained until his last and final retirement in 1998. Some of his directorships were with Champion Road Machinery Ltd. in Goderich, Ontario, Canadian Life and Health Insurance Compensation Corp., Toronto, Nu-West Group Ltd., Calgary, and H and K Equipment Ltd., Toronto. He was a Fellow of the Institute of Canadian Bankers; a Fellow of the Society of Management Accountants, of which he was Ontario President and then Canadian President. He was also a member of the Senate of the University of Toronto for eight years. Although Ronald had many outside interests, his greatest was his membership of over fifty years in Metropolitan United Church in Toronto, where he was, for two separate periods, Chairman of the Board of Trustees. On his retirement from the Newcourt Credit Group, his retirement gift was an echo organ for the balcony of Metropolitan, adding to the church's glorious five-manual Casavant organ, which is one of the finest concert organs in Canada. Ronald and Hilda moved to Barrie, Ontario less than a year ago, to be closer to their cottage at Muskoka Mills, and it was there that he left us. There will be a private family service this week, and in the fall a memorial organ and choir concert at Metropolitan United Church in Toronto. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Ronald McKinlay Organ Fund at Metropolitan United Church, 56 Queen Street East, Toronto, M5C 2Z3, would be gratefully received and can be made through Steckley-Gooderham Funeral Home (30 Worsley Street), Barrie.

Celebration of Life Service
On Saturday afternoon, May 26 a Celebration of Life service was held for John Oliver RITCHIE in the Annesley United Church, Markdale when a large crowd of Friends and relatives attended.
Prior to the service Bill McMEEKIN provided bagpipe music as the people entered the church. He concluded with playing the hymn "O God of Bethel", a family favourite and the hymn which was played as the Ritchie forefathers boarded the ship to come to Canada.
The eulogy was given by his sister, Rosemary RITCHIE, who related about growing up on the Old Durham Road, Artemesia Township the son and daughter of John and Sadie (Sarah OLIVER) RITCHIE and attending the Old Durham Road School. She recalled many experiences of their young and teenage years and then of John Oliver going off to train for a nurse. She recalled how he graduated from the Owen Sound General and Marine Hospital then obtained his B.A. from Waterloo University before heading west in 1974.
He chose to live in Delta, British Columbia where his great-uncle and former British Columbia premier, John OLIVER, had settled. There he enjoyed nature, creating a wonderful garden and walking his dogs.
He completed a M.A. at Simon Fraser University and became a teacher at the Faculty of Health Sciences at Douglas College where he taught for 30 years. He was much loved and admired by colleagues and students alike.
He enjoyed music and sang with the Vancouver Bach Choir for several years in performances of Handel's Messiah, the Aida performance at British Columbia Place and subsequent travels to perform in Japan.
Rev. Mark WAUGH of Annesley United read scripture and gave the meditation.
George ACHESON and Marilyn GUY sang several solos and duets during the service.
Les MacKINNON, a cousin, recalled memories of John Oliver as did Katie HARRISON, a classmate.
Others taking part and recalling memories were Joe TAILOR/TAYLOR, Lynn MOREWOOD, Katherine HALL, and Mary HALL.
All classmates were presented with roses upon entering the church and at a specific time during the service went forward and placed them on the table at front of the church.
Following the service a time of fellowship was enjoyed in the church's Fellowship Hall.
John Oliver RITCHIE's ashes were interred in the family plot in Evergreen Cemetery, South Line, former Artemesia Township.

RITCHIE, John Weir
It is with sadness, yet recognition of a life well-lived, that the family announces that John Weir RITCHIE departed from us on July 6, 2007 at Rockwood Terrace in Durham.
Beloved son of Edgar and Bessie RITCHIE, John was born in 1918 at his parent's Elbow, Saskatchewan farm where he lived until the age of four. When his father died at 24, John moved with his mother to Durham, Ontario and joined his uncle Thomas WEIR's family.
Married to Sarah (Sadie) OLIVER in 1944, they lived on their Old Durham Road farm near Priceville to raise two children, John Oliver and Rosemary. In addition to farming, John worked at Hewgill's sawmill in Pricevilie and for both Farquhar and John MacKINNON over the years, and drove a high school bus route. Retirement took John and Sadie to their retirement home, "Cape Horn" on the outskirts of Markdale.
Always well-respected by his community, John was noted for his humility and kindness as he exemplified rural life, enjoying all that it offered. He was an enthusiastic member of Annesley United Church, the Markdale Curling Club and a ten-year volunteer at Rockwood Terrace. Predeceased by his wife, Sadie in March 1997, and his son, John Oliver in February 2007, John is survived by his daughter, Rosemary RITCHIE (Wayne PILKINGTON) of Vancouver and sisters-at-heart, Mary (Ken) HALL of Scarborough and Margaret (Robert) MONTGOMERY of St. Catharines.
Funeral service of remembrance and thanksgiving was held at Annesley United Church, Markdale, on July 13 with Rev. Don PLETSCH presiding.

KING, Alan McLeod (1919-2007)
Alan KING was born August 27, 1919 in Brandon, Manitoba. He passed away in Montreal on July 13, 2007 after a long battle with the horror that is Alzheimer's.
Alan was a man of energy and vision. As a teenager he learned ham radio and that opened up the world around him. With his radio skills he gravitated towards aviation and became a pilot. He flew with Ferry Command during World War 2, ferrying new aircraft from America's factories to troops around the world. After the war, he settled in Montreal and worked as a commercial pilot for Trans-Canada Airlines. His love of invention then took him to work with his uncle in the early days of the vending machine. From this was born VendKING International in 1947. VendKING (now VKI Technologies/ Filterfresh) grew to become a world leader in coffee machines with customers worldwide. VKI/Filterfresh was sold to Van Houtte in 1998 and is still a thriving company to this day.
In the early 1950's he met an angel named Geraldine Audrey MacKINNON. They married shortly thereafter and enjoyed 32 magical years together before her untimely death in 1984. Alan and Gerry shared their lives with their four children and their grandchildren. They enjoyed travel, sports, theatre, ballet and music. They co-founded The Quebec and Canadian Associations for Children with Learning Disabilities. They were also instrumental in the growth and development of Centennial Academy, the little school that has shown it could - Go Centennial, Go! Alan was a long-time member of Rotary. He was a dreamer and schemer, a lover of sailing, skiing, travel and adventure.
Predeceased by Geraldine KING (MacKINNON.) Survived by his four children, Sandra, Helen, Paul and Brian. And his eleven grandchildren, Michael, Andrew, Stephanie, Elizabeth, Christopher, Andre, Alex, Jason, Emma, Joshua and Danielle.
Special thanks to the caring staff of Place Kensington and Saint Margaret's, and Velma, Kathy and France.

MacADAM, Hugh Gerald
Husband, father, lawyer, Cape Bretoner, decorated solder. Born February 3, 1922, in Margaree Harbour, Nova Scotia Died August 2 in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, of heart failure, aged 85.
By Margaret MacADAM, Page L12
In the last years of his life, Gerald MacADAM puzzled about the meaning of his existence and the ways in which luck and opportunity shaped his life.
Born in 1922, the 12th (and youngest child) of Colin Francis and Annie (CHISHOLM) MacADAM, Gerald spent his childhood in the town of Margaree Harbour in Cape Breton.
In his life, there was his education (and high jinks) at St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, and yet he graduated summa cum laude; fighting (and high jinks) in Europe during the Second World War as a lieutenant in the army; law school (and high jinks) at Dalhousie University.
Gerald was also with the legal department at Algoma Steel Inc., and did years of volunteer work for organizations in Sault Ste. Marie. He was married to Amelda MacKINNON for 52 years and was a devoted father to his son, Donald.
Gerald was first and foremost a Cape Bretoner. To him that meant a man fortunate to have been born on the Island and not on the mainland (the disparaging term for the rest of Nova Scotia).
Second, Gerald was a scholar in the tradition of many of his highland forebears. For him, the centre of his home was his library he read extensively about history, politics, philosophy and religion.
He loved nothing better than having a "discussion" with a visitor about his experiences at university, in the army, working with Sir James Dunn at Algoma Steel Inc., or his volunteer work with the Grey Sisters.
Over a glass of scotch, the visitor would be regaled with funny stories.
One of his best was about trying to move an unauthorized horse during a military convoy, having the horse trailer break down on a bridge, which held up the entire operation, being berated by the commanding officer, and giving his name as Donald MacDonald, knowing that there were so many Donald MacDonalds in the army that no one would be held responsible.
Perhaps inevitably, Gerald was a seeker. He marvelled that he survived a war when so many didn't and he struggled with the difficulties that shape all our lives. He had an inquiring mind and sought meaning in Buddhism.
It was his wish that his friend, Rev. Francis Reid, who had been an altar boy at his wedding, officiate at his funeral. Those who knew him understood that his journey was well done.
Margaret MacADAM is Gerald's niece.

DRYDEN, Thomas " Tom" Robert
Died November 30th at the age of 80 in his home with his family by his side. He leaves Mary-Lou, his one and only love of 55 years, and sons Jamie (Johanna), John, Jeffrey, and Michael (Cathy). "Papa" and "Grandpa Tom" will be greatly missed by his loving and adored grandchildren Georgia and Ally, and Pip and Tommy.
Tom was born in Grosse Pointe, Michigan. His parents were Canadian and moved back to Canada and lived in the beach in Toronto. He attended Malvern High School. Tom enlisted in the American army in 1944, trained at Fort Benning and Camp Crowder. He attended officer training school and as a 2nd Lieutenant joined the 11th Airborne. He shipped to the South Pacific where he served and upon discharge returned to Toronto. Tom attended University of Toronto, Victoria College, and was a Psi U.
Upon graduation he joined the Aetna Insurance Company - Group Department, where he remained for the next 25 years. He then moved to Marsh McLennan and worked there until retirement in Lou and Tom were married in 1952. They spent twelve years in wonderful Quebec where all four boys were born. In 1965 the family moved back to Toronto and spent five years there before moving up to Caledon.
Tom had many interests!!! He was a ski instructor at Talisman and Caledon Ski Clubs, played golf at Chinguacousy Golf Club, joined Caledon Mountain Trout Club where he enjoyed fly fishing, loved to go duck hunting, shot pheasant in Wales, and was a great skeet and trap shooter.
He started carving decoys and birds, proved to be extremely talented and went on to win many awards at the Sportsman's Show and the Canadian National Exhibition. There was a long waiting list for his carvings.
In addition to a decades long interest in magic, Tom also enjoyed bird-dogs, flying, scuba diving, sailing, photography, tennis, painting and was an avid outdoorsman.
He was generous with his knowledge, loved for his sense of humour and dinner party recitations, and always honoured his backgammon debts to his wife!
"Pour lire avec plaisir"
Lou and the boys are very grateful for the care Tom received from the nurses and Doctor McKINNON at Headwaters Hospital. Tom's last days at home were greatly eased by the exceptional and compassionate care provided by Palliative Care Nurse Liz BIRNIE. The family also wishes to express their heartfelt thanks to Doctor Duncan BULL, Tom's longtime doctor, for his outstanding care and for always being there. A private family cremation service was held and a celebration of Tom's great life will take place in early May 2008. In lieu of flowers, those who wish to do so may make donations to Headwaters Healthcare Centre, 100 Rolling Hills Drive, Orangeville, Ontario L9W 4X9 or Hospice Caledon Foundation, (Bethel House), P.O.
