DEATHS

RENOUF
Harold Augustus Renouf, OC, LLD, FCA

Born Sandy Point, Nfld. June 15, 1917, died peacefully July 4, 2005 Halifax, NS. Beloved husband of Dorothy (Munro); cherished father of Janet, Ann Petley-Jones, Robert (Barbara), and Susan (Scott G. Thompson); and much loved grandfather to Phillip, Evan, Elizabeth, Iain, Matthew, Connor and Roisin. Also survived by his dear sister Sybil (Ross). A graduate of Dalhousie University with a degree in commerce, Harold was a leading member of Canada's business community. He was a partner in the accounting firm HR Doane and Company from 1942, serving as chair of the firm from 1967-1975. In 1974-75, Harold was president of the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants. During his years with HR Doane, he undertook a number of significant briefs, including the NS Provincial Municipal Fact-finding Commission that reshaped and modernized the structure of the province's towns and cities. He was sole commissioner for the Royal Commission on Gasoline and Diesel Oil Pricing in 1968 and was commissioner for the Royal Commission on the milk industry in 1967 that brought out in him an unexpectedly whimsical fondness for dairy cattle. He left his accounting practice in 1975 to serve as the Atlantic region's commissioner for the Anti Inflation Board, moving with Dorothy to Ottawa full-time to become the Board's chair from 1977 to 1979. From Ottawa, he and Dorothy moved to Montreal where he served as the newly formed Via Rail's chair from 1982-85. In 1985, he retired and returned to Halifax, attending to his varied private business interests, serving on boards and splitting his time between Nova Scotia and his winter home in Sarasota, Florida. Brilliant, with a logical and clear-headed approach to any task and an iron clad sense of ethics, Harold became a valued advisor to many prominent businessmen and politicians from Frank Sobey to Pierre Trudeau. For his many acts of public service, he was made an officer of the Order of Canada, awarded the Commemorative medal for the 125th Anniversary of Confederation, named to the Accounting Hall of Fame at St. Mary's University and awarded the Queen's Medal as well as the Queen's Golden Jubilee Medal. Harold loved the challenge of his work but he loved his family still more. He was happiest puttering around his Pictou Landing cottage or his Sarasota home surrounded by family and friends. We, for our part, loved being around his quick wit and quiet strength. Harold's was truly a life well lived. He had a profound impact on many and all of us touched by him will miss him. Visitation will be held at St. Andrew's United Church, Halifax, on Sunday, July 17, 2005 from 2 to 4 pm. A memorial service will be held at St. Andrew's on Monday, July 18, 2005 at 11 am. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to the Nature Conservancy of Canada, Sandy Point campaign.

MOORES, The Honourable Frank D. - Newfoundland and Labrador's second premier passed away on July 10th, 2005 at hospital in Perth, Ontario, at the age of 72, after a battle with cancer that never conquered his spirit or zest for life. Premier from 1972 to 1979, Frank was devoted to the province and its people. He was the loving and beloved husband of Beth, brother of Megan Nutbeem, father of Susan, Deborah, Michele, Jill, Nicole, Stuart, Andrea and Stefan, father-in-law to Andy, Chris, Al, Lisa and David, grandfather of Becky, Josh, Sarah, Rachel, Zoe, Jay, Nick, Sasha, Hilary, Kyle, Evan, Laura, Cam, Cole, Hunter, Riley and Gabrielle, and great-grandfather to Sophie.
Born in Carbonear, Newfoundland, Frank graduated from St. Andrew's College in Aurora, Ontario, where for two years he was Commanding Officer of the Cadets. Active in the family fish business and community affairs in Harbour Grace during the 1960s, Frank helped found the Cee-Bees hockey team, for which he was recently inducted into the Newfoundland Hockey Hall of Fame. In 1968, Frank was elected M.P. for Bonavista-Trinity-Conception, and in 1969, president of the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada. In 1972, he was elected Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador, where he worked tirelessly to develop the economy of the province, democratize its politics, and preserve its culture of fierce pride and compassion, which he embodied in his own personality. In the 1980s, Frank was active on the federal political scene, founding a government relations firm in Ottawa and then, in the early 1990s, began spending more and more of his time with his family at his cherished home in Chaffey's Lock, Ontario.
Avid fisherman, crack shot, and lover of the outdoors, Frank was never happier than when he was on a river, in the woods, or on the barrens. A wonderful raconteur with an endless trove of stories, acute observations, and lore of Newfoundland and Labrador, Frank lived, as one of his friends once said, "at a time which was probably the best he could have chosen for himself."
To everyone who knew him, on either side of the political aisle and whatever their walk in life, he was a gentleman who will always be remembered for his vibrant warmth, wit and humanity. As expressions of sympathy, memorial donations made to the Frank Moores Scholarship at St. Andrew's College or to the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated by the family.
