Kilpatrick,
John Gordon
J.G. Kilpatrick (Photo courtsey of Mr Ross Kilpatrick)

His brother Ross writes: "John was, I think, gunnery officer in "Sorel" and signals in "Buckingham". After university he re-enlisted as Instructor Lieutenant in the RCN(R), and served in HMCS "Sheerwater". When the Korean war began, he applied to transfer to executive branch once again, but was given little hope. By the time the paperwork did come through, he had already transferred to the Army (2 RCHA) and served in Korea. He recalled seeing (I think it was) "Buckingham" off the coast and being greatly grieved. If only things had turned out differently! He later injured his back in parachute training, which eventually sadly ended his military career."

New Year 46 *
* In addition to carrying out his regular duties as Senior Technical Gunmounting Officer on the staff of the Director of Naval Ordnance, Lieutenant Lindsay has performed invaluable service in working in collaboration with the British Admiralty Technical Mission. He was personally responsible for working out the major change in the design of a new gunmounting being manufactured in Canada which enabled an unique combination of anti-aircraft weapons to be developed and made ready for use in His Majesty's Canadian ships allocated for the war against Japan. The development of this weapon in Canada to meet a particular operational requirement in a remarkably short period of time was in considerable part, due to this Officer.

* For over 50 years, Richard Steele has made outstanding contributions to horticulture in Canada. One of North America's leading experts in rhododendrons and azaleas, he is renowned for having developed hundreds of new hybrids that can withstand Atlantic Canada's harsh growing climate. His infectious enthusiasm for rhododendrons and his willingness to share his vast knowledge have earned him the respect of plant breeders nationally and internationally. Bayport Plant Farm, his nursery of 30,000 ornamental plants, will be a living legacy for generations of Canadians who share his passion.

Jack H. (Jake), O.C., LLD After a short stay at Ottawa General, Jake has passed away in the full embrace of his loved and loving family. Born in April, 1921 on an Ontario tobacco farm, he was raised and educated in Ottawa and completed his studies at Queen's University, Kingston, B.A., LLD. In World War II he welcomed responsibility as a naval officer on many ships, notably HMCS Valleyfield which was torpedoed and sunk in the frigid North Atlantic in 1944. His survival only ensured and reinforced his commitment to deliver a genuine public service to a country that he loved. An interest in trade and internationalism brought him post-war to the Department of External Affairs and in due course to appointments as High Commissioner to the United Kingdom (1971-1975) and Ambassador to the United States of America (1975-1977). His focused dedication and overwhelming work ethic were rewarded with varied positions of significance throughout his life, including Deputy Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce (1968-1971). In 1977 he returned to Canada to act as Ambassador and Canadian Coordinator of the Tokyo Round of World Trade Negotiations (1977-1979). Upon his well-deserved retirement from the federal public service, but still hungry for intellectual challenge, he accepted the Vice-Chairmanship at Bank of Montreal and then represented the Province of Quebec as its Free Trade Policy Advisor during NAFTA negotiations. He received the Public Service Outstanding Achievement Award in 1975 and was appointed an Officer of the Order of Canada in 1982. The many achievements in his professional life only pale against the happiness and love that he shared with dear Joan, his wife of 55 years, his four children, Hilary, Martin, Jennifer (Charlie), Ian (Andrea) and his grandchildren, Andrew, Colin, Alec, Beverly, Thomas, Madeline, Emily, Jack, Robert and the late Fiona, who will miss his great wit, dining-room table exuberance and unsuccessful efforts at discipline. He has been a great friend of many and his absence at Round Table, CHIMO, Stammtisch, White Pine and on the salmon rivers will be conspicuous. Funeral service will take place at St. Bartholomew's Anglican Church, 125 MacKay Street on Monday, April 7th, 2008 at 2 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to the NAC Orchestra Bursary would be appreciated.
