STAPLETON, Arnold Grieve
Joined his wife Helen (née PRESTON) and soul mate of 49 years on Wednesday, December 19, 2007. Born August 2, 1918 in Stratford, Ontario, he is survived by his second wife Mary MacLEOD, brother Bill, brother-in-law Hugh SHORTILL, children Joan BOXER (Richard,) Jeff (Patti,) Diana (Bill TAILOR/TAYLOR,) and Arn (Peggy.) Grandchildren Sarah, John, Todd, Marley, Preston and Katie will sorely miss their Poppa. Uncle Arn leaves giant shoes to fill in the lives of the many Stapleton/Preston relatives spread throughout the world. As corporate lawyer (having graduated from Osgoode Hall in 1950), Director of Personnel and chief labour contract negotiator for General Motors of Canada over a 29 year career, A.G. was the youngest director in the company's history. His was the voice of reason - the calm amidst many a storm during one of the most challenging eras in the United Auto Workers/General Motors contract evolution. Many said that Arn's unique ability to compartmentalize complicated concepts won over both union foes and management associates alike. He was able to maintain composure by utilizing a wonderful sense of humour centered around a quick wit and well placed one-liners. A man of few words, when he spoke, people listened. An English scholar (Words Are Important!), a history and travel buff, a Wagnerian connoisseur, a lover of opera and Shakespeare and one heck of a bridge and chess player, Arn was a 50+ year subscriber to the Stratford Festival (his second most favorite place after the family cottage at Inverhuron Beach). Always willing to give his ample talents to worthy causes, Arn served as Chairman and long time director of the Oshawa General Hospital, board member of both St. Andrew's Church in Oshawa and First-St. Andrew's United Church in London, and was a member in standing of the Law Society of Canada. In the words of his beloved Shakespeare -"to thine own self be true". A celebration of Arn's life will be held at First-St. Andrew's United Church, 350 Queens Avenue at Waterloo, London on Saturday, January 5 at 1: 00 p.m. Reception to follow. Cremation and Spring interment at Avondale Cemetery, Stratford. Memorial contributions to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 633 Colborne Street, Suite 150, London, Ontario N6B 2V3 would be gratefully appreciated.
"Safe Journey, Dad."

He used his brush as a weapon to empower the powerless
Once a sincere and ardent Communist, he spent more than 60 years depicting strikes, refugee camps, political rallies, native reserves and the lives of ordinary working people
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S12
Toronto -- Bill STAPLETON was more than just another artist with a social conscience. His documentary art prodded, pushed, shamed, confounded and made people think (and sometimes squirm). He knew that not many people wanted to hang socially relevant art like his over their living-room sofas. It was just as well.
No bucolic landscapes, postcard portraits or pictures of fruit for him, but fulminations against inequality, oppression, poverty and the misery of society's dispossessed. These were powerful reminders of humanity's shortcomings, but also depictions of the inner strength and dignity of people accustomed to hardship.
In the words of his biographer, Mr. STAPLETON held "strong, unabashedly partisan empathy" with the compositions the artist called "Human-scapes."
Largely unsung, though he was once dubbed "the People's Artist," Mr. STAPLETON was a committed socialist, activist and a sensitive, persuasive man "who celebrated the dignity and independence of the human spirit without irony but not without humour," wrote C.H. (Marty) Gervais in People In Struggle: The Life and Art of Bill Stapleton (Penumbra Press; 1992).
Working in a variety of media - pen-and-ink, charcoal, watercolour, ink wash, oils and acrylics - Mr. STAPLETON spent more than 60 years depicting strikes and picket lines where workers squared off against police and company goons, refugee camps where he heard tales of torture, women's rallies and the lives of ordinary working people, and native reservations where he faithfully recorded disgusting poverty.
"Sketching is honest and immediate," he'd say. "You can't go back and pretty it up."
His artistic activism wasn't limited to Canada. He journeyed to Mexico and Central America to document injustice and despair with nothing more than brushstrokes.
"People have been neglected," Mr. STAPLETON explained on his 90th birthday, "and that's why I've concentrated on them. Social art doesn't play enough of a role in art." He saw his role as almost journalistic, a visual Upton Sinclair whose solidarity with his subjects only hardened. Mr. STAPLETON was committed to using his craft "as a tool and weapon for the benefit of the powerless and the denunciation of the powerful," Mr. Gervais found.
Collections of Mr. STAPLETON's work are housed in the National Archives of Canada and, ironically for a man who worked so hard toward peace, in the Canadian War Museum. In 2006, he donated more than 1,500 canvases and sketches to the Cabbagetown/Regent Park Community Museum in Toronto.
Born and raised in middle-class comfort in conservative small-town Ontario, his father was a salesman. A 1933 strike at a local food plant that was violently suppressed left a deep mark on him. "The father of a friend of his was beaten in that strike," said his daughter, Lynn TAILOR/TAYLOR. " That left a very raw impression. It had a lot to do with influencing his politics later in life."
He planned to become an engineer and, to that end, accepted a job surveying the Trans-Canada Highway in White River, Ontario, north of Lake Superior. The Depression was on and he was grateful for the work. His older brother, Bruce, an illustrator well known for his war-bonds and Red Cross posters, sent him some paints, and Mr. STAPLETON sketched the scenery and his fellow workers - 12 to a tarpaper bunkhouse. With little else to do after long, gruelling days, he honed his talents, sending pieces to his brother, who returned them with notations suggesting improvements.
He toiled in the north for 18 months and, with $800 in savings, headed to New York City where he studied art at the U.S. National Academy of Design, and where the apolitical 21-year-old first encountered radical politics. His roommates in a teeming tenement near Central Park were leftists, and the Big Apple was a magnet for Marxists. Finding and sketching hobos and street urchins a stone's throw from the gleaming towers of Wall Street helped seal his political views.
But New York was as competitive as people had warned. After two years, he failed to find work as an illustrator and came home. In Toronto, he worked as a printing salesman, which allowed him to take evening classes at the Ontario College of Art.
In 1941, Mr. STAPLETON was emboldened to join the Communist Party of Canada after Ottawa banned it. This was no act of petulance but a sincere belief that the party could better achieve the dreams of social justice than other leftist groups. (He would quit the party in the early 1950s, dismayed by Stalin's treatment of artists in the Soviet Union.)
Later in 1941, when the Soviet Union entered the Second World War, he signed up for service in the Royal Canadian Air Force and became a pilot. It was around this time he first achieved recognition. A work of his titled Canadian Airman was included in a travelling Canadian military exhibit.
Shipped to several bases in England, he ended up with the 418th Royal Canadian Air Force Squadron in North Yorkshire and trained on Wellington and Lancaster bombers. But the war ended before he could fly any missions.
Meantime, he'd sketched.
"It got so I was annoyed if we had to fly because it cut into my art time," he would recall to his biographer. "I usually rode a bicycle, with a small canvas bag I could sling over my shoulder, and I'd pedal off to sketch. Fortunately for me, when the fog set in - and this was quite often, English weather being what it is - we'd be grounded for two or three days. It was a great opportunity, and not having to make art to make money was like being subsidized."
At war's end, he chose to stay in London to study at the famed Slade School of Art. Though his own war art portfolio grew, an appointment as an official war artist eluded him, and he returned to Canada in time to document two seminal strikes, one by Stelco workers in Hamilton in 1946, and the other by the Canadian Seaman's Union in 1949 on the waterfronts of Welland, Toronto and Montreal.
That same year, he married Margaret (Mickey) RYLANCE. He'd met her at an art show, and later explained that he fell for her despite the fact she believed in God.
With a family to support, he started his own advertising agency and bought a cottage and a split-level house in Toronto. The middle-class life was maybe not what communists aspired to, but "with a wife and three daughters and a couple of mortgages, I had to have a job - so I went into the advertising business. It was a living." There was a line he once heard about working in advertising and loved to quote: "I never told my mother I was in advertising. She thought I played piano in a brothel."
In 1974, he visited Russia on a cultural exchange. Describing it as the trip that had the greatest impact on him, Mr. STAPLETON reconciled conflicted feelings. "They led the world in science and were the first to the moon. Freedom of the sexes, women were ship captains and factory heads. Socialism led the world then, but was betrayed from within and without. I still believe in revolution."
He divorced his wife after 23 years of marriage - there were no hard feelings and the two stayed Friends - and moved to Toronto's Cabbagetown neighbourhood ("it was here I joined the human race") where he began depicting ordinary people doing ordinary things. For about a decade, he was resident artist at three Toronto landmarks: The Hotel Winchester, the Paramount Tavern, and the Trojan Horse Coffee House. He'd sit for hours, sketching and painting exiled Chilean musicians, leftist activists, and the regulars.
"I liked pubs like the Paramount," he recalled. "It attracted a mostly black clientele. The guys were cocky, exuberant and graceful; they just had this way of moving and expressing themselves. And their music - wow! The mixed clientele provided a real slice of life - fights, shootings, stabbings and four police vans on a Saturday night."
As for his style, it had a relaxed structure but his lines were "direct and bold, drawn with rock-steady hand and a sharp eye," noted Carol MOORE- EDE, Mr. STAPLETON's friend and curator. "He painted in startlingly vibrant colours and bold strokes, as forthright in his technique as he was in his social convictions."
One reviewer lauded his oeuvre as being in the tradition of Edgar Degas and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.
His pace quickened in his sixties and seventies. He journeyed to Nicaragua in 1982 to sketch the suffering and despair caused by the country's political upheaval. In 1984, he went to Mexico to document the scores of Guatemalan refugees flooding the border in a struggle for safety and food. The following year, he was part of a delegation that travelled to Spain to seek recognition for the 1,239 Canadians of the Mackenzie-Papineau Battalion (the "Mac-Paps") who fought the fascists in the Spanish Civil War. And in 1989, he joined the Innu of Sheshatshit, Labrador, to protest low-level test flights of North Atlantic Treaty Organization fighter jets and bombers over traditional native hunting grounds. An exhibit was mounted in Toronto.
He belonged to Veterans Against Nuclear Arms, and in the early 1980s, helped mobilize artists in a national disarmament movement, Arts for Peace, chaired by novelist Margaret Laurence and numbering the likes of Pierre Berton, Norman Jewison, Margaret Atwood and Karen Kain.
In his later years, he volunteered for ArtHeart, a community-based effort that provides free access to studio space, instruction, and art supplies. He'd give away quick sketches to children.
Just last December, he received the Ontario Federation of Labour's first Lifetime Cultural Achievement Award. His age prevented his attendance but he received a standing ovation nonetheless.
Asked by his biographer whether, at 75, he still had "the fire" in him, Mr. STAPLETON reflected, "Sure, I still get passionate about causes, about inequity and inequality, about what's wrong with our society, with the environment and with the economic system… Look, you have to have anger, passion, indignation, love, tenderness - the whole gamut of human emotion - if you're going to be a real artist. Injustice is always with us, and one of the jobs of responsible artists is to respond to it. Art becomes an essential voice in all the chaos of our times: A tool for bearing witness, and a weapon for effecting change."
He never made a living at art, he admitted, "but I lived through it."
William Johnson STAPLETON was born in Stratford, Ontario on January 24, 1916. He died in Bracebridge, Ontario on February 5, 2008. He was 92. He is survived by daughters Lynn TAILOR/TAYLOR, Judith STAPLETON and Sharon SHERMAN. He also leaves his former wife, Mickey, and five grandchildren.
An exhibition of Mr. STAPLETON's selected works, is on display at Riverdale Farm, 201 Winchester Street, Toronto, Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. until March 23.

SHORTILL, William Hubert "Hugh", Kt. G.C., B.Comm. - Queen's (April 22, 1906-July 3, 2008)
It is with great sorrow, the family announces the passing of William Hubert SHORTILL (Hugh) in his daughter's home in Thornhill, Ontario at the grand age of 102, while listening to Bing Crosby singing Irish songs. He leaves to mourn, his son John (Helen), daughter Deborah, grand_sons John J. (Delphine), James (Krista), Robert and Timothy and great-grand_son Matthew. Predeceased in 1990, by his beloved wife of 52 years, Jean STAPLETON (of Stratford, Ontario) and his cherished son David, in 1997. He will also be missed by his many nieces, nephews and best Friends Jim Hewitt, Harv Greer, Louis Janetta and the late Frank Bogart. Unexpectedly born in Galt, Ontario while his parents were at the races. Most proud of his Irish descent, he was the son of Cowin SHORTILL, of Ballinafad, and May DEMPSTER, of Gananoque. With the passing of his mother, in 1907, he was raised by her parents Thomas and Margaret DEMPSTER in the family home, Woodview Villa, now the Athlone Inn and Restaurant. He put himself through Queen's University, during the Depression, by working five months each summer on the St. Lawrence Ferry System. Filled with energy and ideas, he moved to Toronto in 1935, where he met and married Jean. Joined the Toronto Real Estate Board to become 'Realtor Extraordinaire'. He was instrumental in the early development of Leaside, North York, Rosedale and the Bridle Path area, where he tried to convince buyers to purchase 2-acre lots for $10,000. He served organized real estate with distinction as President of The Toronto Real Estate Board and The Canadian Real Estate Association. 'W.H.' maintained his Broker's License well into his nineties, and was proud to hold the F.R.I. designation (Fellow of the Realtors Institute) throughout his career. Hugh enjoyed many affiliations, including: The Royal Canadian Yacht Club, Granite Club and Albany Club. He was a life member of York Downs Golf and Country Club and played in his nineties, although legally blind in later years. He represented York Downs in international tournaments and had the ultimate satisfaction of scoring 'A Hole in One'. Sir William H. SHORTILL was a Knight of Malta (Priory of Canada,) of The Sovereign Military Order of Saint_John of Jerusalem, and held elevated memberships as a 32nd Degree Mason (1926), Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of Can. (1933), A. and A.S.R. Rose Croix, Royal Arch, Rameses Temple, a Shriner and a member of The Jesters. Always a Toronto Booster, he played an important role in the Residential/Commercial/Industrial growth and development of this city. Hugh loved to travel and his favourite method remained the many trips to Europe and The British Isles on the Q.E.2 and the Concord. He had an unquenchable interest in people - who they were and where they came from, and as an old school gentleman, often did business, simply on a handshake. Hugh was a dynamic speaker and spoke internationally on real estate issues, also an amateur historian who spoke often at various Historical Societies. He enjoyed life to the fullest and always found time to 'give back', including many charities. Above all, he was an optimist, with an amazing ability to inspire, enthuse anyone he met and give hilarious hat shows from his 100 collection and he hosted the best parties! Many thanks to his wonderful caregivers, Patricia Malcolm, Brad, Janice and Natasha. A private service to be held, with interment at Mount Pleasant Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Canadian National Institute for the Blind or charity of your choice. Online condolences www.rskane.ca The 'First Nations' word for Gananoque means 'Place of Good Health' - W.H. certainly enjoyed this over a long and fulfilling life. Happy travelling Dad. R.S.
