Late notice: 3155 passing of Dusty Miller & Hommage à 13362 Gaétan Brosseau / Remembered

Posted by rmcclub on 8th March 2015

3155 Donald S. (Dusty)

MILLER, Donald S. (Dusty) June 20, 1930 – March 6, 2015 It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Donald (Dusty) Miller. Dear husband and partner, in life and sports, of Joan (Delahaye) Miller; Dad to John (Joy), Donald (Susan), Brian (Doris), and Philip (Gerry); much-loved Granddaddy of Jared (Beth), Jennifer, Elizabeth, Jana, Brent, Sandy, Laura, and Julia. Dusty loved his large and extended Miller Family, with roots in rural Saskatchewan, and he will be greatly missed by his surviving brother Philip (Lilly) and sister Jean; he will be fondly remembered by his brother-in-law, Dr. Donald Delahaye (Mabs). Dusty pursued his passion for aircraft, engineering, and flight throughout his life: first as an RCAF F-86 Sabre fighter pilot and then in his long career in international sales with Pratt & Whitney Canada. In 2001, he was honoured with the Santos Dumont Lifetime Achievement Award from the Ambassador of Brazil for his work with the Embraer aircraft program. His life was greatly enriched by the lasting friendships he enjoyed as a RMC and Queen’s University alumnus and as a SPAADS (Sabre Pilots Association) member. Dusty was active throughout his entire life, happiest when he was playing tennis, cycling, sailing, and skiing, but he most cherished spending time with family and friends, especially at Cartwright Point. According to Dusty’s wishes, there will not be a visitation or service. The family thanks the Kingston General Hospital ICU (Kidd 2) Team, in particular, Katherine, Christine, and Emily, for their kindness and compassionate care. In Dusty’s memory, donations to the University Hospital Kingston Foundation, NICU-Pediatrics, or to a charity of choice would be appreciated.

3568 Ron McKinnon – Class of 1956

Stanford economics Professor Emeritus Ronald McKinnon dies at 79

A leading thinker in the field of international economics, Ronald McKinnon was one of the first academics to analyze “financial repression” as a substantial barrier to successful economic development. One colleague described him as an “intellectual giant” throughout the Stanford community and beyond.

Ronald I. McKinnon, the William D. Eberle Professor in Economics, Emeritus, died Oct. 1 at the Mills-Peninsula Hospital in Burlingame, California, from complications resulting from a fall on an escalator at San Francisco International Airport on Sept. 18. He was 79.

McKinnon was born in Edmonton, Canada, on July 10, 1935. He joined the Stanford economics faculty in 1961 as an assistant professor. He received tenure in 1966, was promoted to full professor in 1969 and eventually became a chaired professor. He earned his bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Alberta in 1956 and his doctorate in economics from the University of Minnesota in 1961.

McKinnon was an applied economist whose primary interests were international economics and economic development. Understanding financial institutions and monetary institutions was central to his teaching and research. A prolific writer, he wrote or co-authored nine books and penned numerous articles and commentary pieces for economic journals and publications such as The Economist, the Financial Times and the Wall Street Journal.

James Terence (Terry)  Terry Rogers was in RMC Mech Eng department and a football coach in the early 50′s .November 19, 1926 – November 25, 2014

Born and raised in Montreal, Terry died in hospital in Ottawa with his family at his side. Beloved husband of Sharon Rogers (Little), father of Allison (Raam), Kelly, Patrick and Chris (Bonnie). Proud grandfather of Kira, Levi, Kai, Jonathan, Abby, Meg, Mika, Zoë, and Gabriel. Predeceased by sister Sheila, he will be missed by brothers John (Maureen), Tom (Twink), Bob (Nancy), and their families. Fondly remembered by his many friends and colleagues of the Canadian Nuclear Industry, and the Friday Luncheon Discussion Club. A passionate reader of history, politics, science and technology, he revelled in lively debates at the dinner table. An avid sportsman, Terry was renowned for his dogged play on the field with the McGill Redmen and his prowess on the ski slopes. Later in life, he preferred to glide peacefully along the ski trails of the Gatineau Park with Sharon. Giving up his promising football career to pursue a life of learning, Terry was the recipient of the first ever PhD in mechanical engineering awarded by McGill University. After many years in industry, with stops in Montreal, Chalk River, San Diego and Peterborough, Terry joined the faculty of Engineering at Carleton University in 1970 and later was appointed Professor Emeritus. He developed a reputation as one of Canada’s leading nuclear safety experts. Terry was awarded the W.B. Lewis medal in recognition of his distinguished contributions to nuclear science and engineering. After “retiring” from Carleton in 1993, he continued to consult to industry and served on the R&D Advisory Panel to AECL until the ripe old age of 85.
His “die in your boots” work ethic and his insatiable thirst for truth were remarkable. Friends are invited to join the family to remember and celebrate Terry’s life at the Nepean Sailing Club, 3259 Carling Ave, Ottawa, on December 1 from 2:30 to 5:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, donations to the McGill University Health Centre Foundation
