CRIPTON, Doctor Michael J. (1934-2008)
Dr. Michael John CRIPTON 73, died at ProTem Health Services, Gorge Rd., Moncton, on March 27, 2008. Born in Montreal he was the son of the late John and Veronika (TKACHUK) CRIPTON. Doctor CRIPTON's first passion was in helping others. This ability first came to the fore when - as a boy of nine - he was placed in the Weredale boy's home of Montreal after his father (a Ukrainian immigrant labourer) died and his family dissolved. He became a central part of the school and he was placed in a supervisory role at a young age. He often referred to the experiences and struggles that he had with the younger children (and children his own age and older) at Weredale at stages such as bedtime and lights out. His own children benefited from this wisdom at bedtimes! He clearly experienced the first pulls towards his lifelong passions of mentorship, leadership and volunteerism at Weredale. He remained involved at Weredale as a resident and councilor until his graduation from Dental School at McGill in 1957. He went on to practice general dentistry in Fredericton where he met his wife Nancy. After their marriage he returned to Montreal to study Orthodontics and then he moved to Moncton in 1961, becoming the second Orthodontist in the province of New Brunswick at that time. He was a passionate volunteer in his chosen profession of dentistry, where he held many professional, administrative and leadership roles in national and international professional organizations and governing bodies. He served as President of the Canadian and New Brunswick Dental Associations, President of the Canadian Association of Orthodontists and President of the Royal College of Dentistry of Canada. He was also active in international dental organizations including acting as President of the Pierre Fauchard Academy, delegate to Federation Dental International meetings and he chaired the Atlantic section of the American Academy of Dentists. Not surprisingly, one of the skills he was proudest of was his ability to run effective meetings! This was a reflection of his desire to accomplish all that could be accomplished in whatever he did. No task was too daunting for him whether professional or personal and this was the spirit he brought to all of his work. These many organizations and their memberships, and all the people that worked with him benefited from this spirit and his ability to inject it into his leadership roles. Mike was equally passionate about volunteering, helping and leading in civic duty and community service. He served as President of the Moncton Boys Club, Chairman of the National council of Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada and he was active in fundraising for these organizations. He was a fundraiser for the Easter Seal Campaign, President of the Moncton Rotary club (and had perfect attendance there for 43 years), a District Governor of Rotary and a Provincial President of the McGill University Alumni Association. He loved hockey and served on the Executive Committee of the New Brunswick Hawks. He was a bilingual Councilor at Large of the Moncton City Council from 1970 to 1974 and later served as chair of the 8000 seat Moncton Coliseum Commission. He was active in local business as well co-founding C103 FM in 1988. His contributions have been recognized by many awards such as the top Pierre Fauchard Academy award, and Distinguished service awards from the Canadian Dental and Orthodontic Associations. He was awarded the Queen's Silver Jubilee Medal in 1977 and the Builder of Youth award from the Moncton Boys and Girls Club. His greatest enjoyment and likely what he considered to be the greatest of these many honours he enjoyed until the time of his death, being 'Boppy' to his seven grand children. He is survived by his wife of 49 years, Nancy (GREEN) CRIPTON; son Michael, Halifax; daughter Mary, Halifax; son Peter (Cara INGLIS,) Vancouver son David (Nadia JENEFSKY,) New York; and son-in-law Harry FITZGERALD (Halifax;) sister Jennie LAROSE and her husband Jacques; and seven beloved grandchildren; Veronika and Max FITZGERALD; Hana, Cara, and Sasha CRIPTON- INGLIS; Benjamin and Stella CRIPTON. He was predeceased by brothers Steve, George, and Billy. Visitation will be held at Fair Haven Funeral Home on Thursday, April 3, from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. A Celebration of Mike's life will be held at 4: 00 p.m. on Friday, April 4th, 2008 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, 1005 Main Street, Moncton, New Brunswick. Memorial donations may be made to the South East New Brunswick Alzheimer's Society or a charity of the donor's choice. Arrangements under the care and direction of Fair Haven Funeral Home, 1177 Salisbury Road, Moncton, 506-852-3530. A book of condolences may be signed at www.fairhavenmemorial.ca

This wonderful, fun loving man was renowned for his good humour and generosity of spirit which stayed with him until the end. He will be remembered and sadly missed by his family and Friends throughout the world. Ross enjoyed a long and successful career in advertising and motivational speaking. For many years he loved riding his horse with his Friends at the Caledon Riding and Hunt Club. Since his retirement from business Ross was fortunate to lead a very active life.

Stray bullet kills Toronto man
By Omar EL AKKAD with a report from JENNIFER Lewington, Page A1
John O'KEEFE just happened to be walking down Toronto's busiest street on a Saturday night. That's all it took to cost him his life.
The 42-year-old Toronto resident and health-food store manager became the city's second homicide victim of 2008 when he was killed over the weekend. Mr. O'KEEFE, an avid environmentalist and father of a nine-year-old boy, was hit in the head by a single bullet that police believe was never meant for him. Two men now face first-degree murder charges in connection to the killing.
"The deceased was struck while he was basically just walking down the street," said Toronto police homicide detective Graham GIBSON. "He was just walking."
At around 1: 15 a.m. on Saturday, police were called to the Brass Rail Tavern, a strip club at 701 Yonge Street, just south of Bloor Street. Two men had just been kicked out of the club after acting up. After being booted from the tavern, both men began walking away, but only got a few metres before turning around.
"They did leave, but they didn't go far," said Det. GIBSON. " They took exception with security [at the Brass Rail]."
Upon returning, one of the two men allegedly pulled out a handgun and fired a single shot. Last night, police said the gun was registered to one of the suspects. Police believe it was aimed at members of the security staff outside the club.
Instead, it hit Mr. O'KEEFE in the head. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.
Mr. O'KEEFE's partner described him yesterday as a wonderful human being who loved the environment.
"Johnny was a great guy; he really was," said Susan BANAHAN. "He loved to recycle - you couldn't throw a tissue in the garbage when he was around."
Mr. O'KEEFE had a nine-year-old son from a previous relationship. Together with Ms. BANAHAN and her child, they formed a family.
Ms. BANAHAN said Mr. O'KEEFE worked as a health-food store manager at the downtown Exchange Tower. In his spare time, she said, he liked to walk around the city - the Don Valley was one of his favourite spots.
At the time of his shooting, Mr. O'KEEFE was likely walking to the subway from the Duke of Gloucester, his favourite watering hole, Ms. BANAHAN said. Like the Brass Rail, the bar is located near the corner of Yonge and Bloor.
After the shooting, both suspects allegedly ran away, heading south on Yonge Street for a few metres before turning onto Charles Street.
But within 12 hours, police had two men in custody.
"We had excellent witnesses: and support from civilians and community members and people inside [the club]," Det. GIBSON said. As a result, police had the first suspect in custody by 11: 45 Saturday morning, and the second suspect a couple of hours later. Edward PAREDES, 22, and Awet ZEKARIAS, 23, both Toronto residents, are jointly charged with first-degree murder and attempted murder. They made their first court appearance yesterday morning at Old City Hall.
Saturday's killing bore eerie similarities to another shooting that rocked Toronto in December of 2005. Mr. O'KEEFE was killed just a few blocks north of where a brazen shootout claimed the life of 15-year-old Jane CREBA. Both victims were never the intended targets of the bullets that hit them, yet both were the only ones to die in each incident.
Ms. BANAHAN was devastated by the news of her partner's death - she spoke to a reporter yesterday just as news of Mr. O'KEEFE's killing played out on her television set at home.
"I'm just so sad that he won't be around any more," she said.
Last night, two of his best Friends, in shock over the fluke of their friend being in the wrong place at the wrong time, remembered him as a gentle, funny man, "brilliant at darts" and devoted to his young son and network of Friends.
"As a father, he showed his son Toronto's every ravine and heritage building," recalls Andrea ASTER, a friend for the past 20 years. "He was an ardent environmentalist whose only wish was that his son would grow up to be an environmental warrior."
She said that Mr. O'KEEFE, a 6-foot-2-inch man with "piercing blue eyes," had a way of making and keeping Friends.
"The people who were his Friends were his Friends for life," she said.
Another long-time friend, Brian EATON, 43, met Mr. O'KEEFE when they attended the same Scarborough high school. Mr. EATON said his younger brother, Tony, 42, who was in the same high-school class as Mr. O'KEEFE and remained close Friends, had invited him to the family cottage in Huntsville this past weekend. But Mr. O'KEEFE declined so that he could go skating with his son.
"I wish he had gone to the cottage," said Mr. EATON.
For the past 15 years, he said Mr. O'KEEFE was a weekly regular at the Duke of Gloucester pub, where he played darts.
"When I heard of the shooting I thought to myself I hope that was not Johnny because he was my one friend who might be walking down Yonge Street because he goes to the Duke," said Mr. EATON, adding that his friend's violent end was the opposite of how he lived.
"He wouldn't know anyone who has a gun or practices violence," said Mr. EATON.
"He was a responsible father, a responsible friend, the kind of guy that everyone loved and every kind word you would think of, you would apply to him."
Meanwhile, police are looking for witnesses: to a shooting Saturday night at Rosemary Lane in the Forest Hill neighbourhood. An unidentified man in his 20s suffered serious injury when he was shot once in the stomach near Bathurst Street and Eglinton Avenue, but is recovering in hospital, Toronto Police said yesterday.

DARVELL, Henry
Father, husband, grandfather, friend, neighbour, gardener, outdoorsman, engineer, self-declared curmudgeon. Born March 26, 1931, in Glasgow, Scotland. Died July 27, 2007, in Carleton Place, Ontario, of heart failure, aged 76.
By Shayna WATSON and Rob JENNINGS and Giles DARVELL, Page L8
It is fitting that Henry, born in Scotland and raised in England, would find himself in a Canadian hamlet of 100 people most famous for its pub. He claimed status as the Ashton Village Curmudgeon with a self-published book by that name. The book was atlas, architectural document and love song to the village and life he adored.
He left Ashton, near Ottawa, adorned with sculptures made of gourds, daffodils, trees, garden gates with sunflower designs and unlikely connections between people.
Henry cultivated relationships. He was married twice, first for 26 years to Betty, with whom he had three children - Giles, Karen and Tim - then for 20 years to Susan, who predeceased him in Susan and Henry found great joy in their large garden. Henry designed and built additions to his barn and home. He traded lumber for copper and began building fountains; this gave way to gourd sculptures and then to painting and life drawing.
Henry accommodated, though didn't give in to, his failing health. He had cardiomyopathy.
Henry enjoyed drinks at the Ashton Pub on darts night, ice cream at the General Store, a good meal and the perfume of a beautiful flower.
Behind his big gruff exterior was a gentle man who easily fell under the spell of small children, delicate garden creatures and the promise of seeds.
He spoke with great pride of his children and grandchildren. His Friends were a group of people as eclectic as his interests. The extent of his social circle was evident at his 70th birthday party - toddlers, retired farmers, academics and artists joined the celebration.
Although he was unable to walk more than a block or two, Henry headed for Mexico with his dog and camper van. This was preceded by trips to northwestern Ontario, Yukon and James Bay, and followed by a trip to Newfoundland.
In the later stages of his illness, he complained that he was "dying too bloody slowly," but Henry lived independently until a few days before his death, in his home surrounded by Dougal, his canine companion, sports on the telly and a book by his side.
When he died, he left an ambitious five-foot canvas with the beginnings of a farm scene, gourds partly carved, fish to feed, plants to tend and frogs to show to visiting children. These were the signs of hope and the love of life that desired one more day.
Shayna WATSON and Rob JENNINGS are Henry's Friends, and Giles DARVELL is his eldest son.

Ontario New Democratic Party leader turned province into a three-party political system
A politician who was remarkably deficient in ego, he took over with a caucus so small that he held 18 portfolios, yet 'was never, ever, set back.' He put cause before ambition and twice stepped aside for others
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S8
In a political career that spanned three decades and as many premiers (Leslie Frost, John Robarts and William Davis), Donald C. MacDONALD never despaired that his social democratic convictions would ultimately prevail. "I am, by nature, an optimist - an 'incorrigible optimist' according to my Friends," he confided in his aptly named memoirs, The Happy Warrior.
"Whenever we were defeated, he always found a moral victory," said former politician Stephen Lewis, who succeeded Mr. MacDONALD as leader of Ontario's New Democratic Party. "Whenever we made progress by inches, he saw a socialist sweep. He was never, ever, set back."
As a politician, Mr. MacDONALD was that most extraordinary of creatures, a man without an overweening ego. He put the cause before his own ambition, working as an organizer for the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation under David Lewis, stepping down from the New Democratic Party leadership to make way for Stephen Lewis in 1970 and then resigning from York South, the seat he had held for 27 years, to ease Bob Rae's transition from federal to provincial politics.
How he would respond to Mr. Rae's current political incarnation is harder to gauge. "For Donald, it would have been inexplicable. It would have hurt him deeply," said Mr. Lewis. "He would not have understood how somebody who was schooled at the feet of Tommy Douglas, Stanley Knowles and David Lewis, and who then became premier of the province as a New Democrat, could make the jump [to the Liberal Party]. He would have been quite taken aback."
"He was very disappointed, but, directly contrary to what some people have said, it never affected our personal relationship. He never expressed any bitterness to me," said Mr. Rae, speaking from the lobby of the House of Commons in Ottawa. "He understood that I had reached a different point in my life and that I simply disagreed with the idea that one could only be a progressive inside the New Democratic Party. I also felt that a real change was taking place because the Harris-Harper takeover of [the Progressive Conservative] parties provincially and federally changed the dynamics of politics - and I continue to believe that very strongly."
Many of us wander through life changing jobs and searching for our true vocation. Not Mr. MacDONALD. He set his sights on a career in politics as a teenager and determined the route he would follow to achieve his goal. "I can recall vividly an occasion in Grade 10," he wrote in his memoirs, "when each member of the class had to deliver a speech on what they intended to do upon graduation. Some were uncertain, but not me: school teaching was to be the stepping stone, while doing undergraduate work, to weekly journalism, in pursuit of the goal of politics."
The only question: Which party? His parents were apolitical and, as a young man, he leaned towards the Progressive Conservatives, if only as a personal tilt away from the Liberals, who dominated federal politics. It was life, and what he saw of it during the Depression and the Second World War, that determined his political stripe as a social democrat.
"Although philosophically misguided, he was nonetheless a predominant figure in the legislature," said his old political foe, William Davis, Ontario premier from 1971 to 1985. "He was a great debater and very knowledgeable with respect to the rules of the House. I think he was respected by his own caucus, and - I can only speak for myself - I even had a certain degree of affection for him. He put the issues of the day and the issues of his party before any personal ambition of his own… and he kept the party active, and provided leadership in the House and he certainly added to the ongoing debate about Confederation."
"He was the anchor and encyclopedia of Ontario's political life - not just in the Frost years, but in the Robarts years," said Mr. Lewis. "And at times, because there were so few Co-Operative Commonwealth Federationers and New Democratic Partyers in the legislature, he handled every portfolio himself."
On that, he and Mr. Rae remain in complete agreement. "His great characteristic was his optimism and his sheer durability. He was a tremendous generalist in his knowledge of public policy and in his dedication to the Co-Operative Commonwealth Federation and the New Democratic Party," said Mr. Rae. "He was a very dedicated, ebullient, hard-working guy - quite remarkable."
Donald Cameron MacDONALD was born in Cranbrook, British Columbia, on December 7, 1913, the eldest of eight children to Charles Pirie and Gertrude Annie (JENNINGS) MacDONALD.
Charles, who was of Scottish ancestry, had left the family farm on the Tullochgorum Road near Ormstown, south of Montreal, for the West. After several years and jobs, his father persuaded him to come back and till the family soil. Young Donald went to nearby Ormstown High School, graduating in 1931. He took teacher training at Macdonald College in Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue, graduating in 1932 as the Depression deepened.
His first job was in a country school near Shawville, Quebec, teaching pupils from all seven elementary grades. After five years, he had worked his way up to a high school in Sherbrooke, where he also coached hockey, football and basketball, while taking extramural university courses for an undergraduate degree from Queen's University. It took him six years and $1,875, including the cost of actually living in Kingston and going to class in his senior year so that he could graduate in 1938 with an honours degree in history, politics and economics.
That year was pivotal as training for a political career. He wrote a column for the student newspaper, sat on the executive of the debating union and was a delegate from Queen's at the founding of the Canadian Student Union in Winnipeg. He also won a fellowship to do graduate work and caught the eye of a man named Arthur Newell, who hired him as a travelling lecturer in Britain and the United States to promote Anglo-American understanding.
After completing his master's thesis in March, 1939, Mr. MacDONALD embarked on a cross-country tour to gauge the state of the Canadian nation, made a quick trip back to Queen's to write his final exams and then sailed for England to travel and speak to audiences in Britain and on the continent. The war scuttled plans for an American tour, so he was sent back across Canada, earning enough to wipe out his university debts. Turning his back on teaching, Mr. MacDONALD sought the next rung on his self-styled career ladder - journalism. He landed a job first as a proofreader on The Gazette in Montreal and then on the education and consular beats.
In February, 1942, he left the newspaper, joined the Royal Canadian Navy and married Simone BOURCHEIX, a young woman he had met at the inaugural Canadian Student Union conference in Winnipeg in 1938. By chance, they met again in 1942 at adjoining tables during a Montreal lecture on French translation. Six months later, they were engaged and, after a weekend wedding and a two-day honeymoon, he was training to be a wireless operator in St-Hyacinthe while his bride taught school in Montreal.
Instead of going overseas, he was promoted to sub-lieutenant and sent to Ottawa to work as the secretary to a top-secret communications committee deciphering signals from enemy submarines. (That summer he also purchased, for $25, a sustaining membership in the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation, a left-leaning Canadian political party that had been founded in 1932.) Within two years of joining the navy, he was made founding editor of Canada Digest, a monthly compendium of news and features that was circulated to Canadian military personnel overseas.
From print, he moved to radio as the chairman of Servicemen's Forum. Working with Robert G. Allen, later the executive producer of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation drama, he went to a different military base every week in Canada (and abroad, after the Germans surrendered in 1945), chose a panel of three vocal servicemen and launched a free-wheeling discussion on topics such as postwar employment, housing or education. He had three lasting memories from these days: inspecting the "rubble heap" of the former Reich Chancellery in Berlin; observing the trial of Irma Grese, the sadistic concentration camp guard who was reputed to have made lampshades out of human skin and then hanged in December, 1945 and the exhuming of mass graves in the forests outside Celle in central Germany.
After being demobilized, Mr. MacDONALD and his wife settled in Ottawa, where, in May of 1946, he accepted an invitation from David Lewis, federal secretary of the Co-Operative Commonwealth Federation, to work at the party's national office. "It was the most important decision of my political life," he wrote in his memoirs, "a culmination of all that had gone before, and the gateway to what was to follow." For several years, he travelled the country as federal treasurer and organizer, drumming up financial and electoral support for the party while Mrs. MacDONALD kept house and took the major role in raising their three young children, Sandra, Joy and Brian.
When Ted Jolliffe resigned as Co-Operative Commonwealth Federation leader in Ontario, after having lost the Toronto riding of York South in the 1951 provincial election, Mr. MacDONALD was invited to switch gears from international and national affairs to provincial ones. He knew the Co-Operative Commonwealth Federation could not achieve national prominence without a strong presence in one of the central provinces. Besides, if nothing else, winning the leadership of the Ontario party would curtail his incessant travelling.
At the convention in November, 1953, Mr. MacDONALD came out ahead of the other contenders, Fred Young and Andrew Brewin, on the second ballot. As leader, he was hobbled for nearly two years by not having a seat in the legislature, a situation he rectified in the 1955 provincial election, when he won the Toronto riding of York South. His three-member caucus was so small that he was the designated critic of 18 different government ministries.
"His work habits were prodigious," said Stephen Lewis. "He churned out press release after press release at his old typewriter in an astonishing effort at enlightening the province about the issues. And because he was so good on his feet and so effective in the house, it is quite remarkable, that sitting with one or two colleagues, he was effectively the opposition. It was a performance unlike any other that I can think of in Ontario's political life."
Although he never became premier, never even became leader of the Official Opposition, Mr. MacDONALD turned Ontario into a three-party political system, oversaw the transition of the Co-Operative Commonwealth Federation into the New Democratic Party in 1961 and achieved his biggest electoral victory in 1967, when the party's standings rose from eight to 20 seats and its share of the popular vote rose from 16 to 26 per cent.
Three years later, the party thought it could smell success with a younger and more charismatic leader. Having laid the bedrock for 15 years, Mr. MacDONALD stepped down as leader to make way for Stephen Lewis, the son of his old Co-Operative Commonwealth Federation colleague.
"I have always struggled with that in my life, whether it was premature, and yet Donald handled it with such grace," said Mr. Lewis. "We sat in the legislature together after I was leader. We were very, very close colleagues, working harmoniously and effectively, largely because Donald was so incredibly devoted and kind. Even though I know it always hurts when you relinquish a leadership and would have preferred not to, he was the soul of comradeship and was constantly and consistently helpful and engaged."
In the 1975 election, Mr. Lewis ran a powerful campaign on a platform of rent control and workplace safety and won enough seats to form the Official Opposition in a Tory minority government led by Mr. Davis. The party's fortunes faltered two years later. The New Democratic Party was reduced to 33 seats and the Liberals became the Official Opposition. A year later, a frustrated Mr. Lewis resigned as leader of the party and as an member of provincial parliament. Michael Cassidy succeeded him in 1978, only to resign in 1982.
Mr. MacDONALD persuaded Bob Rae to run for the leadership - "he was a hard man to say no to," said Mr. Rae. Mr. MacDONALD didn't want Mr. Rae to be a leader without a seat in the legislature, as he, himself, had been in the early 1950s, so he offered up his own riding when nobody else in the party was willing to make the sacrifice. Mr. Rae won York South in a by-election in 1982 and, eight years later, became the 21st premier of Ontario and the only New Democratic Party politician to serve as a provincial premier east of Manitoba. The party was routed in the 1995 election and Mr. Rae subsequently resigned as leader, gave up his seat and quit the party.
Mr. MacDONALD was 69 when he retired from provincial politics in 1982. Among other activities, he served as chair of the Ontario Election Finances Commission, as president of York Community Services (the province's first community health centre, which he was instrumental in founding) and later as president of the Learning Enrichment Foundation. He taught political science at York and Ryerson universities, edited a textbook on Ontario politics and wrote his memoirs.
Donald Cameron MacDONALD was born in Cranbrook, British Columbia, on December 7, 1913. He died in hospital in Toronto of heart failure, after a short illness, on March 8, 2008. He was 94. He is survived by Simone, his wife of 66 years, three children, six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
A public celebration of his life will be held in The Great Hall, Hart House, at the University of Toronto on May 7, 2008, at 4: 30 p.m.
