A well remembered friend

Lionel left a big impression.

I’ll post other bits of evidence of this, but it goes a long way towards making the point, to post this. A two page spread published in one of Toronto’s major weekly papers, three months after his death.

It’s an impressive hagiography, if not a little bit biased. Like most things in the media it’s not exactly a accurate picture, but rather one reporters impression of him.

This appeared in Street Talk – a Thursday insert in the Toronto Star – September 27, 1979.

I remeber reading this as a kid, it was odd but what suck in my mind more was the story on the next page about toys
