MAHABIR, Harold Edwin
Feeling safe in the arms of his family, Harold died peacefully on June 22, 2003, at Princess Margaret Hospital. Harold held the key to his wife Jacqueline's heart for over 50 years. To his children, Alex MAHABIR and her husband Dave POLEY of Port Hope, Nigel MAHABIR, David MAHABIR and his partner Magi ONWUDIWE, and Nicole MAHABIR, all of Toronto, and to countless Friends and relatives around the world, Dad was a teacher and advisor in all subjects from astronomy to zoology, and a storyteller extraordinaire. His wisdom and limitless love shored us up all our lives, and continues to do so. Harold was the keeper of all secrets of the universe, and most beloved and treasured ''Grandie'' to Lucy and Grace POLEY, and remains their all-time favourite playmate. Memorial service will be held at Melville Presbyterian Church, 70 Old Kingston Road, Scarborough, M1E 3J5 (416) 283-3703 at 11 a.m. Friday, June 27, 2003.

Niagara police chief led force 6 years
Wednesday, February 26, 2003 - Page R7
Niagara Falls, Ontario -- Former Niagara Region police chief John SHOVELLER has died of brain cancer.
Mr. SHOVELLER, a Niagara Falls native who devoted 34 years to policing, died Saturday at age 67.
Mr. SHOVELLER began his career in Elliot Lake, Ontario, before moving back to Niagara region.
"He was a consummate police officer, said his wife, Leah SHOVELLER. "He loved his job so much."
Mr. SHOVELLER accomplished a long-time goal when he became chief in 1987. During his watch, a judicial inquiry looked into, and cleared, the Niagara force of corruption allegations. Later, in 1991 and 1992, when schoolgirls Kristen FRENCH and Leslie MAHAFFY were found murdered in St. Catharines, Ontario, he survived the criticism that dogged the investigation that eventually led to the convictions of Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka. He retired in 1993.

Born in Renfrew on April 29, 1914, she moved to Sudbury in 1924 where her father established his lumber business. She attended Central Public and Sudbury High School, Branksome Hall and graduated from the School of Nursing, University of Toronto, in 1937. After working in Toronto in public health, she returned to Sudbury the following year where she met and married Mac.
Kae loved to golf and curl, and took an avid interest in her family's history. She was very talented in the traditional arts, enjoying knitting, quilting and cooking. As an active community volunteer, she belonged to the Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire where she was Regent and to the Salvation Army as an organizer for the annual fund raising drive and board member. She loved to travel with her husband and Friends, but her favourite place in the world was Lake Pogamasing where her parents established a family camp in 1941 and where she spent every summer with her family. She loved to entertain her Friends and her children's Friends, especially at Pog. We were blessed to have a mother and grandmother who stressed the importance of family, community and responsibility. She loved to bring people together and do things for them, to share her interests and her talents, she was kind and considerate to all she met, and along with Dad taught us how to dance and have fun.

Norman Harold McCLELLAND
By Robert McCLELLAND Friday, January 24, 2003, Page A20
Hockey player, business entrepreneur, family man. Born June 21, 1913, in Toronto. Died January 2 in Toronto, from complications of Alzheimer's disease, aged 89.
It's fitting that Norman McCLELLAND was born on June 21, the summer solstice, as he lived every day as though it were the longest of the year. Norman spent his childhood in Cache Bay, Ontario, a tiny lumber village on Lake Nipissing. Norman was proud of his small-town roots. It was there he developed his respect for the outdoors and his simple, honest outlook toward life.
Norman taught himself how to play hockey. He would wake up early in the morning, scurry down to Lake Nipissing with his second-hand skates and stick and clear the ice himself with a shovel. In Grade 9, Norman left his close-knit family in Cache Bay to attend high school in Toronto and eventually play Junior A hockey. He met his lifelong partner, Margaret CHOWN, soon after his arrival. Last November, they celebrated their 62nd wedding anniversary.
From 1933-1937, Norman studied science and education at the University of Toronto. He also played for the Varsity Blues hockey team and was the squad's captain in 1935-36. Norman managed to pull in good grades while playing in a semi-pro league to pay for his tuition and coach the women's hockey team. Not a big man, (he was 5 foot 6 and, at his heaviest, 155 pounds) Norman was known for his speed -- he once beat Montreal Canadiens star scorer Toe BLAKE in a race for $5. During a tournament, scouts from the Boston Bruins approached Norman's long-term friend and coach, Ace BAILEY, asking him if his protégé wanted to turn professional. Norman never pursued the offer as salaries back then were only a small fraction of what they are today.
For a while after university, Norman taught high-school math and physics. When the Second World War came, Norman joined the navy. Margaret, by then his wife, often joked that he only enlisted so he could play on the naval hockey team, which boasted several National Hockey League players on its roster. Yet Norman took his work seriously. He spent three years in a special branch of the navy, opting to stay on after the war to help returning soldiers find civilian jobs or attend school.
When he left the navy, Norman worked for a while with Imperial Optical where he sold waste receptacles. Metal for the containers was scarce following the war and Norman soon took advantage of this niche in the market. With no engineering experience, he started his own company, Erno Manufacturing, making metal household and business products. With his strong work ethic and straightforward and friendly business demeanor, Erno burgeoned from the back of a garage to a building the size of a city block.
During this time, Norman also helped Margaret raise three boys. He coached baseball and hockey from peewee to major-junior teams. Among his charges were four-time Stanley Cup winner Peter MAHOVLICH and Mike KILKENNY, who went on to pitch for the Detroit Tigers.
In 1968, Norman bought Margaret the birthday present of her dreams: a cottage on Lake Joseph in Muskoka. After he retired, Norman and Margaret spent up to six months of the year there, revelling in the lifestyle: canoeing at dusk and fishing at dawn. Norman also took up watercolour painting and golf -- at 75, he shot his age at a nearby 18-hole course.
Norman spent his last decade suffering from the advanced stages of Alzheimer's. The disease stole Norman from the world, but his spirit will never be forgotten. Within 10 minutes of meeting someone he became a trusted and, often, a lifelong friend. He played the piano, read extensively and enjoyed political debates with his family over dinner and Margaret's apple pie. He loved life, and no disease could take that memory of him away.
Robert McCLELLAND is Norman's son.
