Although afflicted by Alzheimers for the past number of years, Archie was very much able to convey his love and support to his children David MacDONALD of Chatham, and Kevin MacDONALD and his wife Cheryl of Wardsville, through big smiles and an ever eager appetite as always! Grandpa will be sadly missed by Ian MacDONALD, Darrin EVANS, Michael MacDONALD, and Stephen MacDONALD, and is now joined in heaven with his grandchildren the late Richard (1998) and Laura (1985).

Predeceased by sister Jean WATSON, sister in-law Donna MacDONALD, and brother in-law James CLARKE. Archie was a born farmer and most of his early years were spent working in agriculture as a labourer, especially during harvest season. He enlisted in 1940 and served in the Second World War. He was in England, Italy, Belgium, Holland, Germany, and returned home the day after his father died on January 23, 1946. After the war, Archie continued his dedication to hard work, travelling to Western Canada as a farm hand during harvest season. He also worked as security on the railroad while he was out West, and in meat packing plants in Winnipeg. He returned home to work as a dispatcher for a transport company, a shipper at National Grocers, and even had his own Taxi company. In 1956 he became an Insurance Representative and the rest is history. He was Top Seller Million Dollar Round Table for three years. Archie started his own Broker business in 1989. He always worked for his clients and was trusted by all. He was involved in church life through A.O.T.S. Men's Club, and personal issues for himself and individuals through Alcoholics Anonymous. In September he would have celebrated 46 years of sobriety through A.A. A Special thank you to Doctor Tom PERKIN who always made himself available to help us learn to deal with dad's illness. He helped us maximize his quality of life and maintain his personal dignity.

Ottawa photographer chronicled Rideau Hall for almost 20 years
Until 1982, he photographed every governor-general and prime minister, beginning with Lord Alexander of Tunis and Louis St. Laurent. Along the way, he became good Friends with John Diefenbaker
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to the Globe and Mail, Page S8
Ottawa -- John EVANS photographed a lot of people over his 50-year career, from queens and prime ministers to ordinary people who just wanted their lives recorded, but he always tried to treat all his subjects with the same courtesy.
Working as the official photographer to four governors-general (Georges Vanier, Roland Michener, Jules Leger and Edward Schreyer), Mr. EVANS was a fixture at Rideau Hall in Ottawa for 18 straight years. No matter what the event - state dinners, Order of Canada investitures, group photos of the federal cabinet or royal visits - he was there to capture it on film from 1964 to 1982.
During those years, Mr. EVANS, who often wore a monocle, took the photos of an impressive array of world leaders, including U.S. president Richard Nixon and Pope John Paul II. For more than 30 years, he photographed every governor-general and prime minister, beginning with Field Marshal Viscount Alexander of Tunis and prime minister Louis St. Laurent. He made many Friends along the way, including John Diefenbaker, before he became leader of the Progressive Conservative party.
Mr. EVANS saw so much of the Queen when she was in Ottawa that the two were on excellent terms, said his wife, Dody. He first took her photo at the end of the Second World War, when she was a princess and heir apparent to the throne. "When she came [to Canada], he was always there. She was very friendly - down to earth," Mrs. EVANS said.
In 1977, the Queen and Prince Philip visited Canada to celebrate her silver jubilee, 25 years after she ascended to the throne. Not only did Mr. EVANS cover that visit for Rideau Hall, but he also took the official jubilee portrait. The Queen wore a long white gown and a tiara, while Prince Philip was dressed in the blue patrol uniform of colonel-in-chief of the Royal Canadian Regiment, complete with sword. Both wore the star and sash of the Order of the Garter. That portrait, taken with an 1880 Topley wooden-framed camera that produced eight-by-10-inch negatives, has since been reproduced countless times.
Mr. EVANS owned three tuxedos - one of which always hung in his office in case he needed it in a hurry. But he never hesitated to bend the rules of protocol to get the best shot. A perfect example was in 1968, when Pierre Trudeau succeeded Lester Pearson as prime minister. Mr. EVANS was required to take a photo of the country's new leader, his cabinet and Mr. Michener.
As the subjects were taking their places, Mr. EVANS noticed that the neckties of the governor-general and Mr. Trudeau appeared to be askew. Marching smartly up to both men in the middle of the front row, he politely asked them to straighten their ties. They knew he was in charge of taking the picture, so they had no choice but to comply. The moment was captured by a Canadian Press photographer, whose shot appeared in newspapers across the country. Mr. Trudeau appeared sheepish while Mr. Michener looked upset. For once, Mr. EVANS was in the photo, instead of behind the camera.
That small moment, while trivial in itself, summarized Mr. EVANS philosophy. "Be aggressive when it's necessary, but be diplomatic at the same time. The prime thing is to be a good mixer," he told the Ottawa Citizen in 1981. "You may have to meet Her Majesty the Queen, or a sewer worker. But either way, you have to meet them on their own ground."
John EVANS grew up in Bristol, England, the son of a ship's carpenter who later became a cabinet maker. He first saw the inside of a darkroom at 13, when he got a job with the Bristol Evening News. They didn't let him take photos, but they did let him clean up. He eventually was allowed to carry a photographer's equipment.
During the Second World War, he joined the Royal Navy but was let go after three days, when doctors discovered that an old hip injury had caused his right leg to be shorter than his left. He drove an ambulance for the rest of the war.
After studying photography at the Polytechnic Institution in London, he became a staff photographer for English Electric, the manufacturer. In 1948, he decided to try his luck in Canada and arrived in Toronto in October with just $21 in his pocket and a burning desire to make something of himself. He knew not a soul in the whole country.
For the next few months, he wrapped parcels at Simpson's for the Christmas season and sold shoes. Then he got a job with Rapid Grip and Batten, a photographic engraving and printing firm. They sent him to Ottawa as a manager and he started taking photos. After that, he never looked back.
Covering all sorts of events for the photo agency Capital Press, Mr. EVANS took pictures that appeared in both the Ottawa Journal and the Ottawa Citizen. A vocal person who loved to tell stories and share his good humour, he met everyone in town, from municipal politicians and firemen to police officers and the butler at Laurier House. Sitting in the kitchen with the butler, he got to chat with Mackenzie King, who had retired a year earlier as prime minister.
Mr. EVANS covered fires, society weddings, service club luncheons, art gallery openings and Rideau Hall events. He photographed cabinet minister C.D. Howe - the "minister for everything" - in his shirt sleeves launching a bowling ball down a lane.
His photos also appeared in U.S. publications, including Life and Time. Waiting at Ottawa's Union Station for the arrival of a group of international statesmen - then, just about everybody still travelled by train - he shot Clement Attlee and Winston Churchill of Britain and Dwight Eisenhower of the United States with a Speed Graphic camera. At an Ottawa fire hall, he photographed a group of excited schoolboys sitting in a fire truck and wearing fire helmets.
Some photo opportunities were more relaxed than others, but some were nerve-wracking, especially when world leaders and celebrities were present. Staking out his spot in the midst of a dozen other photographers, Mr. EVANS waited patiently for just the right moment. "There's a lot of pressure on the job. Nine times out of 10, you don't have a second chance," he said.
By 1964, Mr. EVANS was ready to strike out on his own. It was a huge gamble because he was "flat broke" and married with three children to support. But he was convinced he could make it as an independent photographer. First, he went to see a friend for a small favour.
That friend was Mr. Diefenbaker. While he was no longer prime minister (he had lost a general election to Lester Pearson the year before), Mr. Diefenbaker was still a man of influence. Two days later, Mr. EVANS received a $10,000 dollar loan from the federally run Industrial Development Bank. He rented a store on Sussex Drive and John Evans Photography Ltd. was open for business.
"He and Dief were good Friends," Mrs. EVANS said. "[They] had a good rapport; they liked each other."
They called themselves "the two Johns," she said. "Olive [Diefenbaker] would send us a Christmas ornament every year. John was always there [at 24 Sussex Drive] on jobs and I went with him to carry the equipment. Olive said, 'Bring Dody!' "
Once in business for himself, Mr. EVANS worked seven days a week and took just about every job that came his way. "We worked bloody hard in those days," Mrs. EVANS said. "If you worked hard you did well."
From fine-art reproductions for the National Gallery of Canada to corporate industrial jobs and department-store fashion shoots, everything was good. "I'll do any kind of photography for an honest dollar," he told the Citizen.
Even so, after having photographed thousands of people over the years, he never claimed to have a favourite subject. "He liked everybody," said Mrs. EVANS. " He'd follow a family, from the wedding, christening, Christmas photos, [to their children's] engagements."
Mr. EVANS employed eight people and later opened a framing shop with his son, Peter. Portraits of famous people covered his walls, from Joe Clark of the Progressive Conservative party to Margaret Trudeau cradling her four-day-old son Justin. That photo of mother and child graced more than 120 magazine covers around the world.
But although his business blossomed, the atmosphere changed at Rideau Hall in 1982, when Jeanne Sauvé was appointed governor-general. Mr. EVANS didn't speak French, and he was soon on the outs.
In 1995, he decided to retire. He sold most of his equipment and devoted himself to woodworking and travelling with his wife. In 1998, he suffered a stroke that left him walking with a cane. A second one, in 2000, left his mind clear but took his speech.
The 140,000 negatives he created were distributed to the city of Ottawa archives, Library and Archives Canada and the Rideau Hall archives.
John Henry EVANS was born October 22, 1924, in Bristol, England. He died of pneumonia in Ottawa on November 3. He was 83. He leaves Dody, his wife of 56 years, daughter Susan and son Rod. His son Peter predeceased him.

McEACHERN, Allan Davis (1926-2008)
It is with gratitude for a life well-lived that his family announces the passing of Allan Davis McEACHERN on January 10, 2008. Predeceased by his wife of 44 years, Gloria, he is survived by his loving wife Madam Justice Mary NEWBURY, his daughters Jean WILLIAMS (Michael) and Joanne EVANS (John,) his grandchildren Bria, Stephen, Jenna, Laura, Rosalind and Ian, his brother Bruce, his sister Lillian McDONELL, and many nieces and nephews. Allan was the grand_son and son of pioneering British Columbia families who instilled in him a love of 'God's country', the magnificent natural setting of British Columbia and an appreciation of his Scottish heritage. In his earlier school years he spent the winters in Penticton due to his asthma but later was able to stay in Vancouver and attend high school at Kitsilano and Lord Byng, where he made many lifelong Friends. He spent his youth playing team sports (rugby and football) and swimming in the waters of English Bay, where later in life he spent his leisure time 'crashing around the Bay' in his sailboats Skye I, II, and III. He also loved the mountains of western Canada and treasured the memory of a summer spent as fire lookout above Lake Louise. Allan attended University of British Columbia and completed his B.A. and Bachelor of Law degrees (l950). He practiced law at Russell and DuMoulin (now Fasken Martineau DuMoulin) in Vancouver for 28 years before his appointment as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of British Columbia and later as Chief Justice of the Court of Appeal of British Columbia. Law was his passion. He loved the collegiality of the profession and firmly believed in the Shakespearean principle 'Strive mightily in court, but eat and drink as Friends.' All those he befriended attest to his integrity, humility, energy, intelligence and sense of humour. He was a superlative mentor to many talented law students and took great pride in his establishment of the Inns of Court program. He was a progressive Chief Justice in that he initiated and encouraged the use of computers by all judges, set up an interactive webpage and created a Legal Compendium for the public to keep abreast of legal decisions. Many female lawyers and judges owe much to his efforts to open the profession to women. In addition to his profession, he co-founded the Kats Rugby Club and was actively involved with the British Columbia Lions and the Canadian Football League for many years. More recently, he wished to acknowledge the important role University of British Columbia had contributed to his many successes in life, and accepted the Alumni Association's nomination to run as Chancellor. It was a position he held with great pride and dignity for almost 6 years. We are blessed for having known and loved this remarkable man. In keeping with Allan's wishes, there will be a reception held at a future date. He requested that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to establish a University of British Columbia Law Scholarship for a deserving student so that he or she might have the opportunities Allan had.

EVANS, Kenneth Warren
Passed away peacefully on Saturday, February 9, 2008 in the Palliative Care Unit of Parkwood Hospital, London, Ontario, with his wife, Marianne, by his side. Ken was born in Montreal, August 31, 1926, an only child to the late Albert EVANS and Dora THORNE. At the age of fourteen Ken and his parents moved to Toronto where he attended Oakwood Collegiate Institute. At age seventeen he left school and embarked on a fifty-two year career in the property/casualty insurance industry. His first job was with the venerable old British firm, the Union Insurance Society of Canton on King Street. Ken began as a clerk in the accounting department and eventually became a marine underwriter. This Company spawned many success stories in the property/casualty insurance industry. Due to a General Manager by the name of Jim Price, who died suddenly, a group was formed to honour his memory and was named 'The Old Cantonese Society'. This group met yearly at a black tie dinner in a downtown Toronto hotel and was officially disbanded after 40 years. In 1944, and shortly after his eighteenth birthday Ken enlisted in the Army during World War 2 he never left Canadian soil and did the usual training but, alas, the War ended in 1945 and he was as discharged. Upon release from service he returned to the Union of Canton. He was an articulate and well read man with a sharp wit and a penchant for silly humour. His interest in music was catholic and open-minded, ranging from E. Power Biggs to Frank Sinatra, Neil Young and the Beatles. Ken enjoyed many late hours with his father philosophizing and listening to their shared taste in music over a bottle of Remy Martin. His son, George, also had the good fortune to spend many late hours with his father, and listening to a new brand of music that Ken eventually embraced. He moved to The Travelers Insurance Company and was eventually appointed Assistant Manager for Canada. In 1969 he was asked to take over the Canadian Operation of the Reliance Insurance Co. of Philadelphia. In 1973 Ken was asked to join The Insurance Corporation of Ireland (Canada) Ltd. of which he was so proud because he had birthed and nurtured the Canadian Operation and, ultimately, was devastated by its shut down due to overseas in-house problems in the London office. Over a twelve year period Ken was appointed Chief Executive Officer of the Canadian Operation. He enjoyed over twenty years of membership at Markland Wood Country Club. His group of four golfing buddies was known as the T.A.T.S. Group (That's A True Story). They enjoyed each other's company and shared a lot of laughter together, with some golf thrown in for good measure. Ken is the last member of that group to pass on. He is predeceased by former wife Ethel. Together, they raised three children - Warren, Victoria and George (Hazel); grandfather to Michael Warren, Louisa and Noah. A man who was known to take a drink, Ken had enormous stamina and drive and loved to be the last man to leave the party. He was also regarded as a man of integrity and, with all the success that he enjoyed in business, he never lost the common touch. But the last years were not kind to Ken as his body succumbed to a lifetime of hard work, drinking and smoking. He will be lovingly remembered by his devoted wife, Marianne GENISE, who nursed him throughout his long illness. His adored Labrador, Bella, was a constant source of comfort and joy to him. Special thanks to Hospice of London; Personal Support Workers Saffie, Linda and Helen; Doctor Maurice BUTCHEY (who's sartorial attire Ken always admired;) nurses Cheryl, Barb, Liz and Mary in the Palliative Care Unit of Parkwood Hospital. Special thanks, also, to wonderful Friends for their tireless devotion throughout Ken's illness; the daily phone calls, chauffeuring, visiting, meals, meals and more meals, really good humour and, of course, caring for our Bella. Visitation will be held at the Westview Funeral Chapel, 709 Wonderland Road North, on Friday from 2: 00-4:00 p.m. and 7:00-9:00 p.m. A Celebration of Ken's life will be conducted at Saint Paul's Cathedral, 472 Richmond Street, on Saturday, February 16th, 2008 at 1: 30 p.m. with Archdeacon D. Ian Grant officiating. Cremation with interment of ashes at Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Toronto at a later date. If so desired, donations may be made to Hospice of London. 'death is not the end'

Phoebe, lover of family, nature and all its creatures, great and small enjoyed being 'out in it' whether it was from 'le petit train de nord' in the Laurentian mountains as a teenager and young adult, in the Morgan Arboretum well past middle age, or as a summer resident of Tadoussac, Quebec from the age of 3 months, enjoying the view and activity of the St. Lawrence and Saguenay Rivers and environs from her front verandah in her later years.
The Family wishes to acknowledge the care she received at Kensington Place, Westmount, from the nursing staff and aides under the leadership of Doctor Lysy, the diligent attention of the waitresses in the 2nd floor dining room and the attendants of the Agence Maria. In accordance with her wishes, Phoebe has been cremated with burial at a later date. A service of remembrance will be held July 17, 2008 at 4: 00 p.m. at the Tadoussac Protestant Chapel.
In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Tadoussac Protestant Chapel would be appreciated by the Family. 141 Crescent Road, Toronto, Ontario. M4W 1V1. Attn: The Treasurer.
