Kenneth Edison Danby 
      Canadian painter

born March 6, 1940, Sault Sainte Marie, Ont.

died Sept. 23, 2007, Algonquin Provincial Park, Ont.
was best known for paintings that featured brilliant colours and were emblematic of Canada, notably At the Crease (1972), which depicted a masked hockey goalie, Lacing Up, which showed a hockey player tying his skates, and The Great Farewell (2001), Wayne Gretzky's official retirement portrait from the National Hockey League. Although Danby's paintings of sporting events were probably his best known, his more than 2,000 works also included portraits of famous Canadians (Pierre Trudeau) and numerous landscapes. Danby was awarded the Order of Canada in 2002, retroactive to October 2001.
