Oshawa public school board trustee Larry Jacula dies - durhamregion.comTuesday, April 04, 2017
Oshawa that he represented so passionately and effectively."Barrett said the Durham school board is reeling after Jacula's loss which comes less than a month after the death of Uxbridge trustee Elinor Hansen who died on March 7 while undergoing cancer treatment.Both Barrett and Jacula represented Oshawa residents and Barrett said he was a good a friend."I didn't see Larry as just a colleague, he was my rock," explained the board chair, adding that Jacula was very visible in the community attending events and visiting schools. "I never had a problem walking in Larry's shadow because he cast a large shadow and there was comfort in that."He describes Jacula as a peacemaker who, as a retired teacher, always kept his focus on the children taught by the Durham school board."He always attempted to build bridges, even when angered, even when insulted he was always the first person to reach out a hand," said Barrett.
Jacula was also well known in the community for serving as the voice of the Oshawa Generals making announcements during games for 24 years until 2007.
He was a community volunteer serving as the chair of the board for the Centennial-Albert United Church and also volunteered in the past with Scouts Canada, City of Oshawa committees and served on the Oshawa Sports Hall of Fame selection committee.
John Hogg said he has known Jacula for 35 to 40 years. They were both teachers at the same time, though not at the same school, and then later served together on the hall of fame committee.He will remember Jacula for his sense of humour."Larry is one of those guys that enjoyed life, he used to do standup comedy sometimes at various places," he explained.He said Jacula will be remembered by the Oshawa sports community. He points out Jacula was a long-time Generals season ticket holder and was at a game just over two weeks ago.
"He had a long career and he was very interested in the sports scene in Oshawa and a strong supporter of the Oshawa Generals right until the end," he said.
Online, condolences included former students who called him a "fantastic teacher."
Jacula is survived by his wife of 50 years, Linda, and children Mark and Michael.
"He will be sorely missed on a personal level, on a board level, on a family level," said Barrett. "He was very tight with his family so my heart breaks for them all."

Clark Davey, 1928-2019: 'The true journalist of journalists' - Ottawa CitizenWednesday, March 27, 2019
He was heartbroken after failing his medical, but an English teacher told him that people would pay him to write. So he enrolled in the first journalism degree course taught at University of Western Ontario, graduating in 1948 and joining the newsroom of the Chatham Daily News.There, he worked under Richard "Dic" Doyle, but moved to Kirkland Lake when the Thomson newspaper chain made him editor-in-chief of the Northern Daily News. His time there was brief, however, as his girlfriend, Joyce Gordon, issued him an ultimatum: Northern Ontario or me. He chose her: they married in September 1952.In the meantime, he joined the newsroom of the Globe and Mail, where his mentor Doyle had been working for a year.As a reporter with the Globe, Davey covered national and international affairs, including the Suez Canal crisis, the St. Lawrence Seaway project and the cancellation of the Avro Arrow program. During the 1957 federal election campaign, he recognized that Tory leader John Diefenbaker was gaining momentum and might actually win, and convinced his editors to allow him to stay with the Chief's campaign for 40 days.

When Doyle became editor of the Globe in 1963, he chose Davey as his managing editor, and, according to Mills, the two raised the broadsheet's reputation from that of a local paper to a national one. Davey was managing editor for 15 years before joining the Vancouver Sun in 1978. He was publisher there until 1983, when he took over at the Gazette. He was publisher of the Citizen from 1989 to 1993. He was also president and chair of The Canadian Press, and co-founder and president of the Michener Awards Foundation that oversees the country's most prestigious journalism prize."He was the true journalist of journalists," says Kim Kierans, journalism professor at University of King's College in Halifax and Michener Foundation board member. "He told me when I last saw him in November, ‘If we're not providing the encouragement for journalism organizations and journalists within them to do the journalism that matters, then we're in trouble as a democracy.'"He was also a lovely man, smart and sparkling … with incredible enthusiasm for the business and its future."According to Mills, Davey, who in 2002 led a protest on the steps of the Ottawa Citizen after Mills was fired for running an editorial critical of then-prime minister Jean Chrétien, was known as tough and gruff, "but deep down he was a really kind and thoughtful person, and a very good friend who was always fair to people. But if you didn't know him, he could be intimidating."And although he called the shots on the job, it was Joyce who ruled the home roost. According to son Ric, his father only stopped the presses twice - once while at the Globe, when Joyce called him to report that she and Ric thought they had just seen a UFO."That was the kind of pull she had over him," says Ric.Clark Davey is survived by his wife, Joyce; brother Kenneth George; children Ric (Rita Celli), Kevin (Margaret) and Clark Jr. (...
