Provisional list of MCHS ’60s (and other decades) students/alumni/teachers who have passed away

In a previous post, we have listed and discussed MCHS Sixties students, alumni, and teachers who have passed away.

At the MCHS ’60s Reunion on Oct. 17, 2015 at Old Mill Toronto, we will have a display of photos and texts, with as complete a list as we are able to put together prior to the event.

Please contact us is there are any corrections or additions to the provisional list. Please let us know of any spelling corrections.

If you know how we can get in touch with Jack Mullaste’s widow, Jeanie, please let us know. Jack was friends with many people from MCHS, in the years after graduation. I knew him when I was a child and adolescent, since we were both members of the Estonian community in Montreal.

A discussion thread regarding this post can be found at the Malcolm Campbell High School Grads Facebook Group:

43 Responses to Provisional list of MCHS ’60s (and other decades) students/alumni/teachers who have passed away

  1. Marty Stockton says:

    I seem to recall that when the reunion for the 1969 class was being organized, we were told that Peter Parsons had passed on. Bruce Goodman or Gary Parker could confirm.

    • Jaan Pill Jaan Pill says:

      Do you have contact details for Bruce Goodman or Gary Parker or would you be able to contact them to confirm? Would Peter Parsons have been MCHS ’69?

      • Bruce Goodman says:

        Hi everyone…
        I will check my records from our MCHS 69er reunion that we had in (yikes) 1999! Hard to believe that it was that long ago.
        Regretfully, additional names that can be added to the list are 1969 graduates Carol Kubes (just in the past few months, in Montreal), Bonnie Greer a number of years ago, and Lynne Campbell who passed away in Belleville, Ontario some years ago. I think there are a few others and will let you know. Bruce Goodman

  2. Doug Hambley says:

    Others to add to the deceased list include:

    Lynda Moodie (Class of 67)
    Robert McMaster (Class of 69)
    Ketia Penny

    • Jaan Pill Jaan Pill says:

      I have added the names. Do you know of a person we can contact to find out what year Ketia Penny graduated?

  3. Bruce Goodman says:

    Re Peter Parsons: Yes, he is deceased. And also Stephen Searle. Both were MCHS 69ers, and both were deceased at the time of our reunion in 1999.

    • Jaan Pill Jaan Pill says:

      I much appreciate the definitive information, Bruce. This is what we need to ensure that we do our fact-checking as we proceed to build the list.

  4. Carmen Zakaib (Carpenter) says:

    Are the obituaries for only those in the ’60s.? I know of a woman of my graduating class in ’71 who died; problem is I don’t recall the exact date. Her name was Ruth Ann Morris. I understand she died of cancer.
    Thank you
    Carmen Zakaib

    • Jaan Pill Jaan Pill says:

      That’s an excellent question, Carmen. What we are involved with, now that I think about it, is a community self-organizing process. We’re working together to compile a list of MCHS students/alumni/teachers who have passed away.

      It makes sense, for me as one of the people involved with compilation of the list, to ensure that the list extends beyond the 1960s. I’ve revised the title of this post, in response to the question. So long as we know the graduation year, or the era in which a student attended, it’s easy enough to list those who have passed away, whatever the graduation year or academic year that they were a part of.

      In some cases we don’t have a graduation year, in cases where a student passed away prior to graduation.

      Similarly, the Oct. 17, 2015 MCHS ’60s Reunion at Old Mill Toronto is for any person who attended MCHS at any point in the 1960s, even if they started in the 1960s and graduated from MCHS in the 1970s, or even if they attended MCHS in the 1960s and then dropped out and/or went on to graduation from another high school, in Montreal or anywhere else.

      I will add Ruth Ann Morris to the list. If anyone reading this blog post has additional details about her life and death, please let us know.

  5. Diane Creagh says:

    Bryan Thompson passed away he was in the graduating class of 68

    • Jaan Pill Jaan Pill says:

      I have added Bryan Thompson to the list. Each update is of value, and is much appreciated. Each alumna or alumnus who has passed away remains in our thoughts and memories.

  6. It was sad and yet, somehow, warming to see those names remembered – and to connect them with the younger people I knew.

    Jack Leroy appeared at my door over twenty years ago – and I had not seen him for many years before that. I don’t even know how he found me. I realized within minutes that he was dying, and that he knew it, too. I can’t remember now whether I took him to the hospital or an ambulance did.

    I last saw Jim McGowan a year or so before he died. He had been teaching for years in Japan, returning in summer to his farm near Cowansville. In his early sixties, he was still much the same Jim I had known when we were in our twenties.

    I had expected to see him the next summer. But he died in his sleep on the night he returned. It was a heart attack. I believe his wife, Anne, died not long ago.

    I hear, occasionally, from Bob Hill. He’s very much withdrawn now – and with health problems.

    I last saw Mrs. Jelinek about ten years ago, much unchanged, but looking shorter for some reason. And I last saw Miss Carr at the airport as I was returning from China. She was heading for retirement in BC.

    I hear from George Allan regularly. though I’ve not seen him in fifteen years.

    I’m also in regular e mail touch with Mrs. Rosenberg, though I rarely see the Rosenbergs because they’re always on the move to various parts of the world. She really hasn’t changed much since school days. She’s recently back from some months of helping villagers build houses in some Asian jungle. She likes to be busy.

    I haven’t been in touch with Mr. Kelly. But many years ago, back in the 70s, I taught his daughter. She was much prettier than him.

    I remember we used to call Mr. Doig “Deputy Doig”.

    My crushing moment came about 1955 when I was supply teaching at Morison school, and I overheard two kids talking.

    “Who’s yer supply teacher today?”

    “Oh, we got old man Decarie.”

  7. Jaan Pill Jaan Pill says:

    We began the provisional list after you posted a comment at a previous post, some time back. We owe you many thanks for prompting us to get the process, of making a list, underway. At the reunion at Old Mill Toronto on October 17, 2015 we’ll have a display, with photos and brief texts, commemorating the lives of MCHS alumni and staff who have passed away.

    One person I was speaking with on the phone a while back said that Jim McGowan banned football at MCHS because he knew of a student who died while playing football at another high school. I would be interested in corroboration, from any source, of that story.

    Around the time of the MCHS 2000 reunion, someone mentioned that Mr. Gilmour, the Phys Ed teacher who made a practice of jogging to school in the mornings, died many years later while out jogging. Again, I would be interested in corroboration, from any source, of that story.

    From discussions at the Malcolm Campbell High School Grads Facebook Group, it’s clear that Mrs. Jelinek was still teaching in the 1970s. She is remembered fondly by many students. Some students also remember that she didn’t put up with nonsense, as a teacher would perceive it, in the classroom. I imagine she grew shorter as we all do, as the disks between the vertebrae of the spine become thinner with the passage of the years.

    I heard years ago that Miss Carr (who was my Trigonometry teacher in Grade 10, 1961-62) and a number of other MCHS teachers were living in British Columbia after retirement. Quite a few MCHS alumni have also settled out that way. Occasionally, you can find a place where the configuration of the mountains and water is such that it’s sunny much of the time. My recollection of Vancouver, where I lived in the late 1960s and early 1970s, is that it’s absolutely beautiful when it’s sunny but there can also be long stretches of rainy days. On the other hand, the Fraser Canyon, as I recall, has lots of sunshine all the time.

    I guess to primary and elementary students, anybody over age 17 looks pretty old. Up until about the middle of Grade 4, students also tend to be convinced that the older folks must be pretty wise, as well.

    At our April 1, 2015 MCHS Sixties Reunion organizing meeting in Kitchener, a recording of which I’m listening to this weekend, in order to write an MCHS 2015 blog post, Gina (Davis) Cayer shared a reflection about the aging process that I hadn’t thought about before. She noted that some people start to look old at a very young age, and maintain that appearance all the way through, whereas some people look young for a long time and then, all at once, a change occurs and a person starts to present the appearance, that we all know so well, that we associate with the passage of the years.

    I recently took some time off from the volunteer work, associated with the MCHS 2015 reunion, in order to work on tax returns. It was great to have a break from volunteer work, and I’m now back at work on the reunion, with increased energy. The experience reminds me of how great it is to take a break, to have a rest, from time to time, especially as the years accumulate. I’ve also been reminded of the adage that, “In life, there are two things that we can be sure about, and that is Death and Taxes.”

  8. Betty Jett says:

    Pamela Gardiner Chapatis was class of ’63 (not ’73 as listed). Thanks for correcting this.

  9. Jaan Pill Jaan Pill says:

    I have made the correction; I much appreciate your help on this.

  10. Billy Bibok says:

    Michael Caluori -Class of 69 passed away

  11. Jaan Pill Jaan Pill says:

    I much appreciate the update, Billy.

  12. Lynne says:

    Heard that Michael Archambeau ’71 and Jane Galler ’71 also died. Cannot confirm details but John Kovac may know. Also Sheila Booth (’73?) Louis Hoddess (70?), Jamie Hoddess (’71)

  13. Wendy Chernabrow says:

    Thank you for the information…so sad. You may have already included to publish, if so, please excuse this note ~ my brother, Gerald Chernabrow, passed March 14, 2013.

    Regards,

    Wendy Chernabrow Class of 71

  14. Jaan Pill Jaan Pill says:

    I much appreciate your update, Wendy, with regard to the passing of your bother Gerald Chernabrow. I have added his name to our list. I much appreciate you taking the time to share the information about your brother. Putting the list together is very much a collaborative effort. Help from all sources is much, much appreciated.

  15. Jaan Pill Jaan Pill says:

    Louise Salhany has added a message via Facebook:

    I graduated from Malcolm in 1967. A name to add to the students who are no longer with us:

    Victoria (Vicki) Karalis, Ahuntsic School and graduated from Malcolm in 1967. Passed away in 1983.

  16. Jaan Pill Jaan Pill says:

    I much appreciate the addition, Louise. I’ve added Victoria (Vicki) Karalis to the list. As well, I’ve noted that the MCHS 2015 website has a page that lets people know, as best as we can arrange it, who has registered so far for the MCHS 2015 Reunion and who is on the Reunion Database. This is a page that may be of interest to quite a few people:

    http://preservedstories.com/whos-attending/

    In some cases, people have indicated at the MCHS ’60s Reunion Facebook Group that they will be attending, but they may not yet be on the Database.

    In order to be added to the Reunion Database, MCHS alumni who attended at any point in the ’60s, or close enough to the ’60s, are requested to send an email to Howard Hight at hahight@gmail.com or to Diana Redden at retiredredden@telus.net

  17. Barbara Godsell says:

    Sad to report my brother David Godsell , class of 67. Passed away on July 29th, 2004 from cancer.

  18. Jaan Pill Jaan Pill says:

    I have added David’s name to our list, Barbara. I appreciate you sharing the information. Each person is remembered; their lives are commemorated.

  19. Gary Lambertz says:

    Karin Lambertz (Died December 22,2013 in Phoenix Arizona) Cancer

    • Jaan Pill Jaan Pill says:

      I have added Karin Lambertz to the list. I much appreciate the information. I am really pleased that we began work on this list, some time back, and that we have been able to get information from so many people.

  20. Jaan Pill Jaan Pill says:

    The passing of every MCHS graduate or would-be graduate warrants our remembrance. I have added both names to the list. I much appreciate you sharing the information with us.

  21. Jaan Pill Jaan Pill says:

    Charles Tsiang has shared, at a post devoted to Jenning Dia, the following comment:

    I remember Jenning Dai very well. He lived around the corner from me in Roxboro. His mum and dad were good friends of my parents since Dr PL. Dai worked at ICAO in the Aviation Bldg in Montreal with my father. I was in my sophomore year at MIT that Spring and was confined to the infirmary with mono. My parents didn’t tell me about Jenning’s accident until I got home that summer. I recall that he had a younger sister who perhaps went to SUNY Pottsdam or Stony Brook. It was such a tragedy. There weren’t many other high school aged Chinese kids in the area in those days. Just Jenning and Peggy and Linda Chow over in Amabaie.

  22. Tim Hewlings says:

    Hi Jaan,

    Here are a few more that did not seem to be on your list.
    Margaret Smeall class of ’63 died c1977 (aneurism)
    David MacRitchie class of ’63 died Aug 11, 2003.
    Metha Bos class of ’63 died August 14, 2014.

  23. Steven Lesser says:

    I am sad to learn of classmates and teachers who are no longer with us.

    I’m sure that many of us have fond memories of Fred Ramcharam, a math teacher. I remember that his homeroom class (class of ’72 IIRC) dedicated their Class Choir competition to him. They sang Neil Sedaka’s version of “Little Devil.”

    To your growing list I’m afraid I must add Grace Lesniak ’73 who lost her battle with cancer on July 25, 2000.

    • Jaan Pill Jaan Pill says:

      I have added 89. Grace Lesniak (MCHS ’73) to the list. I appreciate the update. There is value in having all of this information together.

  24. Jaan Pill Jaan Pill says:

    Sue Holmes writes:

    Richard Alan Holmes b. July 24, 1944 in Edmonton, Alberta – d. May 27, 2010, Pointe Claire, Quebec.

    Rick worked at CN after leaving Malcolm Campbell. He married Susan Fellows and they had two daughters. After their divorce, he married Saundra Cleary with whom he had a very loving relationship until his death. Rick sang in the school choir, he played volleyball and basketball and was a prefect. Rick, Susan and his sister Sue formed a little trio and often sang together at family gatherings. (Susan played the autoharp and Sue played the guitar). Rick had a very beautiful singing voice and one of his claim-to-fame songs was “Danny Boy”.

    Jaan, if you want three songs that could be played in the tribute I would suggest these three: A Legend in My Time by Johnny Cash, The Song that Nobody Sings by Willie Nelson (there is another guy who sings it too if you can’t find Willy) and someone’s recording of Danny Boy.

  25. Nikki King says:

    Thomas Herbert VON EICKEN passed away in Anshan, China on May 6, 2003, after a year and a half of teaching and travelling throughout China. (a tribute to his wife, Linda née Chow). I don’t know precisely when Linda died. I knew them both, and my sister swam competitively with Tom’s sister Claudia. Also deceased is my classmate Krista LUNIN (later known as LEE). She died June 30, 2010 in Ashland, KY, USA of bone cancer. She and I had known each other (& our families) well for many years during and beyond school.

  26. Jaan Pill Jaan Pill says:

    I much appreciate you sharing these details, Nikki. I have added the information to the list. There is so much value in the sharing of such information. We owe thanks to each person who has helped us and is continuing to help us, in this project, which is aimed at keeping alive the memory of classmates and teachers from MCHS who have passed away.

  27. Roy Kaufman says:

    Re. Ulrike Amarica, that is the correct spelling. Not Ulrika. (I was a friend of hers in the early 1970s.)

    • Jaan Pill Jaan Pill says:

      I much appreciate your note, Roy. I have changed the entry, as we now have the correct spelling. It’s good to have the confirmation of the spelling.

  28. Ray Deacur says:

    Thanks for the memories

  29. Jaan Pill Jaan Pill says:

    We owe thanks to every person who has helped in the compiling of this information.
