Holder-Franklin, Dr. Maxine, 1931 - 2019
An amazing voyage that began in St. John, NB eighty-eight years ago, and was exceptional in every way. A scholar, a sailor, a scuba diver, and a world traveler, she lived it all to the max. Predeceased by husband Mervyn and daughter Denise, Mum will be missed by daughters Jennifer and Michele more than we can say. Her absence will also be strongly felt by son-in-law Ian and grandchildren Liam and Stephanina. Countless friends, colleagues, and students alike will remember her intellectual power and intense joi de vivre. An alum of the University of New Brunswick, Dalhousie, Radcliff, and McGill, Maxine had a long and storied teaching career which has left its mark on doctors and nurses who now practice all over the world. Rigorous science and teaching excellence were the hallmarks of her academic career. On the October 9, 2019 we will be gathering at Walter D. Kelly Life Celebration Center (1969 Wyandotte E.) at 1:00 p.m. for 2 hours of reminiscing, with the service to follow at 3:00 p.m. and culminating with the breaking of bread at 4:00 p.m. We request that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Windsor Symphony Orchestra Guild or The Art Gallery of Windsor.

Robert "Bob" Pinto, November 11, 1935 - September 3, 2019
In 1963, Bob joined the University of Windsor Philosophy Department until 1999 when he retired Emeritus. He was an "Informal Logician" who focused on Argumentation Theory.
He is fondly remembered for his commitment to students, theatrical flair and humour. One student wrote, "While I can barely remember some of my graduate school teachers, I remember Pinto like it was yesterday...because he is a flesh and blood character, and not, as Kierkegaard would say, a 'broomstick'...He could get you laughing regardless of how down in the dumps you might be feeling."
