GILLIES, James “Jim” McPhail of Toronto

Posted by on December 18, 2015

Gillies, JamesJim passed peacefully at North York General Hospital in Toronto on Sunday, December 13. He is missed by his loving family, many friends and colleagues.

Jim was born in the village of Teeswater in Western Ontario to Dr. M.H. Gillies and his wife Gladys, a family that was part of the town and region from its earliest days. At 17, Jim attended the University of Western Ontario, and majored in Economics. His time at Western was interrupted by the war when Jim joined the RCAF in 1944 and served as air crew overseas. Upon his return Jim finished his degree with honours and decided to continue his education at Brown University in the USA where he earned an MA. Jim continued his education at Indiana University where he was granted his PhD in Urban Land Economics. After graduation, Jim accepted a professorship at UCLA in California where he rose to prominence in his field, gained his full professorship and was assistant Dean. Jim married his wife Betsy and welcomed children David and Cathy at this time.

Jim was always longing to return to Canada and his family in Ontario. In 1965, the opportunity arose for him to return to act as the founding Dean of the Faculty of Administrative Studies at York University – now the Schulich School of Business. Over seven years Jim built the school from a big idea into the strong base for what is one of the leading schools in North America today. During this period Jim made many friends and grew strong relationships throughout the Canadian business community. He served on many corporate boards and helped establish a world-class zoo in Toronto. Jim and Betsy welcomed children James and Ted during this time. He loved the time with his family. Christmas was always special as were many, many memorable summers in Pointe-au-Baril, Muskoka and the Bruce Peninsula.

In 1972, Jim ran for parliament, winning a seat in the Don Valley riding in Toronto and going on to act as shadow finance minister in the PC opposition to the Trudeau Government. He won reelection to a second term in Don Valley in 1975. Jim ran for leadership of the PC party towards the end of his second term in parliament, throwing his support toward the eventual winner Joe Clark. Jim served as senior policy advisor to the Prime Minister during the Clark government, accompanying him to the G7 Tokyo summit.

After his time in government, Jim returned as a professor at York University, in the school of business. He was instrumental in continuing to build the school he founded to the stature it has today. Jim chaired several programs while at York, most recently the Canada-Russia Corporate Governance Program. He always had great passion and energy for teaching business students, being with them and sharing in their fresh ideas and enthusiasm. Jim has a great many friends and colleagues from this time both in academia and in the business community where he was a member of several corporate boards.

Jim was honored in many ways for his dedication to education and public service. He was awarded honorary doctorates from York, Simon Fraser and the Moscow Higher School of Economics. At York, Jim was awarded the title of University Professor. As a proud Canadian he was deeply honored by the award of the Order of Canada for his contributions to education.

Jim leaves behind a loving family: his wife of 62 years Betsy, children David (Kathy), Cathy, James (Cindy) and Ted (Jacquie), grandchildren Jackie, Gwen, James and David and several nieces and nephews. Jim was the last surviving member of his family, being predeceased by his siblings, Helen Wilson (James), Don (Francis) and John (Poppy). Even with his successful career in many capacities, Jim held dear most of all, family, friends and his roots as a small town boy from Teeswater, Ontario.

A funeral service to commemorate Jim’s life will be held at the Teeswater United Church (13 Elizabeth Street South), Teeswater on Saturday, January 2nd, 2016 at 1:00 p.m. He will be laid to rest in the family plot at Culross-Teeswater Cemetery. A Celebration of Life to be held in Toronto in the spring. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to the Teeswater Town Hall Renovation Fund (cheques payable to Municipality of South Bruce) would be appreciated as expressions of sympathy.

VICKERS, William James “Bill” of Brockville and formerly of Cornwall

Bill VickersVICKERS, William James “Bill”

Peacefully entered into rest surrounded by family at their Brockville home on Saturday October 10th, 2015, Bill Vickers aged 69 years.  Beloved husband of Lise (DesRosiers) Vickers.  Loving father of Kelly Bateson (Joel) of Brockville and Kevin (Lisanne) of Ottawa.   Cherished grandfather of Georgia, Henry and Thomas.  Dear brother of Ann and Charles Vickers.   Bill was the dear son of the late Clara (Beaupre) and William Vickers. He will also be missed by many nieces and nephews.
Son of the late Clara (Beaupre) & William Vickers, Bill came from a family with one brother and one sister.  He and his siblings grew up in Porquis Junction, Ontario.
He married his wife Lise on May 22, 1976 in Cornwall before moving to Brockville Ontario where they raised their two children.  Bill worked for Bell Canada for 11 years before taking the leap to entrepreneurship, purchasing an environmental technology company which he worked in for almost 40 years.
Spending time with his family was Bill’s first priority.  Many days were spent at the cottage in Quebec, playing golf, boating, having fires at night, swimming off the boat, scooting and sailing.
Bill loved music (LOUD music!) and was often the DJ while many of us danced the night away.  He was always eager to play you a GREAT song and tell you what’s NEW and hip.  His music collection on iTunes surpassed the thousands and he loved playing music trivia with anyone who was up for the challenge.
We shall all miss your warm easy smile and your sense of humour.  You were adored and loved greatly by your family who takes and carries forth your strengths.  We know your spirit is with us and we look forward to meeting you once again.  You will always be fondly remembered as a loving husband, a great father and a really fun Pappy.
Family will receive friends at the Barclay Funeral Home, 137 Pearl St. East Brockville on Thursday October 15th, 2015 from 10 a.m. to noon and from 1:30 until the time of Funeral Liturgy which will be held in the Chapel at 3:30 pm. In memory of Bill donations to the Brockville and District Hospital Foundation Palliative Care would be gratefully acknowledged by the family.

TOLTON, Ruth Anne of Brockville

Posted by on October 8, 2015

Ruth Anne ToltonTOLTON, Ruth Anne Elizabeth

On Wednesday, October 7, 2015 at Brockville General Hospital (Garden St), Brockville, Ontario. Born June 8, 1927 in Montreal, Quebec. Daughter of the late Colonel Howard Grant (Spike) Thompson and Edythe Anna Edna Glazier. Married to William (Tub) Tolton of Brockville for 62 years. Mother of David (Heather), Lesley and Christopher. Proud Grandmother of Benjamin (Victoria) Tolton, Matthew (Kate) Tolton and Cameron Tolton.

As the daughter of a military father, Ruth Anne moved frequently around the province of Ontario as a youngster. Without question her favorite spot was the family cottage located just west of Brockville on the St Lawrence River. After high school, her love and interest of animals allowed her to graduate from the University of Guelph (OAC ’53 – Animal Husbandry). Ruth Anne and her family chose to move permanently to the St Lawrence cottage site in 1967.

During the 70’s, whenever Ruth Anne’s time was not focused on raising her family she was deeply engaged in many volunteer organizations and social groups. She took true enjoyment in helping others and did so by volunteering for Books for Shut Ins, Meals on Wheels (30 Year Pin), Loaves & Fishes, Altar Guild at St. Lawrence Anglican Church and visitations at both Sherwood Park Manor and Rosedale Nursing Homes. She was awarded The Ontario Medal For Good Citizenship in 1978.

Ruth Anne loved the river and would take every opportunity to be in it, on it or beside it. Sailing brought her much pleasure. She was an avid gardener and kept her kitchen supplied with fresh vegetables all summer. She loved music of all forms but especially her decades of church choir participation. Her sense of adventure was evident in her enjoyment of travelling around the globe, spending winters in Hawaii or taking a simple drive along the back roads.

She will be sadly missed and we trust that she has moved on to a place of joy. She certainly made life better for everyone who knew her.

Visitation will be at Barclay Funeral Home, 137 Pearl St. East, Brockville on Friday October 9, 2015 from 2:00 to 4:00 and 7:00 to 9:00. A funeral service will be held at 2:00 on Saturday, October 10, 2015 at St. Lawrence Anglican Church, 80 Pine St. in Brockville.

In lieu of flowers, donations to St Lawrence Anglican Church or the Brockville and District Hospital Foundation Palliative Care would be appreciated.
