CHENOWETH, Christopher Allan - Passed away Wednesday, October 10, 2012 at 57. Full of fun, bluster and bonhomie, he was a grand personality who inhabited a wonderful world of his own invention and then invited everyone into it. Friends, baseball, hockey, sports memorabilia, the fair sex, kids, the law, politics, journalism, the Grateful Dead and cha all figured among the favourite things of this good, generous "iron man" who was wise enough to never really grow up and sadly, to never grow old. He had opinions on everything and he was happy to share them. A first-rate employment and labour lawyer with many grateful clients at Kuretzky Vassos, he was also a former Toronto Star business journalist, alumnus of Lower Canada College, Queens University (Arts and Law) and Carleton University (Journalism) and member of the Toronto Lawn Tennis Club. Son of the late David and Clare Chenoweth, born in Toronto November 18, 1954 and predeceased by brothers Richard and David, he is mourned and will be deeply missed by surviving brothers Brian and John, loving nieces and nephews Caroline, Andrew, Joshua, Allison and Jordan, as well as Cailen, Monica and Angus, to whom he was godfather and mentor, along with many close friends of all ages in Toronto, Ottawa, Kingston, Montreal, New York and Washington, among others, as well as colleagues and professional associates. Donations can be made to Cedars Cancer Institute, 2155 rue Guy, Suite 900, Montreal H3H 2R9. A memorial celebration of his life will be held at the Toronto Lawn and Tennis Club, 44 Price Street, Toronto, on Sunday, October 28th from 2 - 5 p.m. Information 416-922-1105.
