No smoke alarms in fatal fire
Retired couple die in bedroom; heavy smokers, police say
son frantically tries to douse fire with garden hose
By Leslie FERENC, Staff Reporter
A man who frantically tried to put out a blaze at his Scarborough home with a garden hose was unable to save his retired parents who were trapped in their second-floor bedroom.
Police say both Jack WILSON, 68, and his wife Sharon, 61, were heavy smokers and there were no smoke alarms in the home.
Emergency crews were called to 121 Hildenboro Square near Warden and McNicoll Aves. just after midnight Tuesday where they discovered the couple's son, Trevor WILSON, trying to put out the fire. Trevor, a Canada Post employee, had come home from work to find black smoke billowing from the house.
The couple was rushed to hospital but pronounced dead. Autopsies were being performed yesterday to determine the cause of death.
The Ontario Fire Marshal's Office is also investigating.
Fire officials say the blaze likely started in the kitchen but wouldn't confirm if it had been ignited by a smouldering cigarette tossed into a trash bin.
A melted plastic garbage can with cigarette butts was clearly visible amongst the charred debris sitting outside the front door of the home yesterday.
Fire Chief Bill STEWARD/STEWART/STUART confirmed there were no smoke alarms in the house.
"In this case, smoke alarms could most certainly have made the difference between life and death," he said in a release yesterday. Neighbour Chris BABANARAS, who has lived across the street from the WILSONs for 22 years, cried as he sat in his garage looking at their home, the smell of smoke still heavy in the air.
"They were a very nice family, a very quiet family," he said of Jack, a retired engineer, and wife Sharon, a nurse, and their two adult sons, Trevor and older brother Carey.
"It's hard to believe that I saw him (Jack) yesterday and he waved to me. I can't believe they are now gone."
A woman, who would only identify herself as a family friend, laid two bouquets of pink carnations next to a tree on the WILSONs' front lawn.
She said the couple's sons were together yesterday and "were pretty struck" by the deaths.
Neighbour David MILLER said he grew up with the WILSONs' sons, now in their late 20s and early 30s, and described the family as "quiet, nice people." He said he often saw Jack WILSON outside with Carey's young children.
"This is very sad and very tragic," MILLER added.
Lenny SPATAFORA, who lives directly across the street, said he arrived home about 11: 30 p.m. Monday "and didn't see anything unusual." About 20 minutes later, he could smell smoke.
"I thought my parents had been cooking and had burned something on the stove," he said yesterday.
SPATAFORA described the WILSONs as a great family.
"It's so sad to see this happen."
Yellow police tape cordoned off the property yesterday as fire officials continued their investigation.
Charred walls in the hallway of the house were clearly visible as the front door of the home remained open for most of the day yesterday. Blackened curtains fluttered through the broken windows of the front bedroom on the second floor.

Clara 'Clibby' VERRIAN, Talent Agent: 1939-2005
Talent agent and casting director carved a niche in the Canadian film industry and made it her own. 'If somebody needed 100 extras for a commercial, she could pull it off'
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Tuesday, April 19, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- Justin LOUIS said there was something about Clibby VERRIAN's "anti-agent" persona. "There was nothing glossy or glitzy about her," Mr. Louis said.
Ms. VERRIAN, a do-it-all performer behind the camera, was an agent to budding stars, the first principal representative for such Canadian actors such as Mr. LOUIS, Sarah POLLEY and Cory HAIM. As a founder of the Toronto talent agency Faces and Places, she was also a casting director, located movie sites and supplied extras for movies, television series and commercials.
Ms. VERRIAN was born Clara HAYWARD in Peterborough, Ontario, where one of the best moves she ever made was to meet Dottie KINGSTON (now BABCOCK) in 1942. In search of a playmate, young Dottie had gone door-knocking in the neighbourhood and turned up Clara. "We were best Friends onward," Mrs. BABCOCK said.
The pair remained close throughout high school at Peterborough Collegiate Institute, where Clibby (a nickname she acquired in Grade 5) made her mark as a track-and-field star. "She was a fast runner," Mrs. BABCOCK said. "She was also the best water skier in the Peterborough area at the time."
After graduating from Peterborough Collegiate Institute in 1958, she took a year off and travelled in Europe before settling in Toronto, where she eventually got married and worked at a string of jobs. In 1980, the marriage ended and, as a single parent, she resolved to do something different. "I decided that if I had to work the rest of my life, I want to be doing something that I love," she once said. "I've always loved the movies and Hollywood."
So, never one to back away from challenges, she formed Faces and Places. "I knew no one in the business when I first started," she said in 1982. "The early days were a constant battle to prove myself."
Eventually, she proved herself and won the respect of the industry.
"Producers and casting directors had worked with Clibby so much, they trusted her," said Gail LIVINGSTONE, who worked as an assistant to Ms. VERRIAN on and off for 10 years. "If somebody needed 100 extras for a commercial, she could pull it off. "
By then, her stable of individual performers included Ms. POLLEY, Mr. LOUIS, Mr. HAIM and others. Before she moved on to other agents and bigger roles, such as The Road to Avonlea, Ms. POLLEY was cast by Ms. VERRIAN in principal roles in The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, Ramona, The Big Town, Hands of The Stranger and One Magic Christmas.
Mr. LOUIS, whose screen credits tally about 100, was cast by Ms. VERRIAN in 1986-87 in a number of productions, most notably Prom Night Queen: Hello Mary Lou. He currently stars in the television series Missing, and was recently cast as entrepreneur Donald Trump in an ABC biopic set to air in May.
"Clibby got me a lot of gigs," Mr. LOUIS said. "I needed six credits for a full Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists membership and I got all six credits with her."
Mr. HAIM was a heartthrob actor in the 1980s, before he faded into oblivion after he slipped into drug addiction following his move to Los Angeles from Toronto.
One of Ms. VERRIAN's first big productions for which she provided extras was the 1981 thriller Escape from Iran: The Canadian Caper, a television movie about the U.S.-Iranian hostage drama and the part played by Canadian ambassador Ken TAILOR/TAYLOR. Ms. VERRIAN's then-partner in the company, Bob BOLDSOVER, scoured the city for locations for that production. "Clibby would look after the Faces and I'd look after the Places," he said.
"Clibby was kind of like a pioneer in the business -- sort of the first person to provide casting facilities," Mr. LOUIS said.
In recent years, Ms. VERRIAN downsized her operations and specialized in acquiring extras for commercials. One of the most demanding was a big-budget, blacks-only Nike commercial called Ruckers Park that featured National Basketball Association star Vince Carter. " Clibby saved my ass on that commercial," said Kim EVEREST, the president of Powerhouse Casting. "We needed to fill an entire stadium to create period Harlem with 750 black extras and Clibby pulled it off. I couldn't believe it."
Faces and Places, with close to 300 clients, has been a refreshing constant on the Canadian scene for 25 years. It will continue under the management of her son D.J. VERRIAN.
"She loved her work. She couldn't believe she was paid to do what she loved," Mrs. BABCOCK said.
Clibby VERRIAN was born May 12, 1939, in Peterborough, Ontario She died in a Toronto hospital on February 18, 2005, of a heart attack. She was 65.
She is survived by sons D.J. and Derek, mother Dorothy, and sisters Millie HILL and Robbie BILISKI.

Charles Clarence "Clare" LAKING, Veteran (1899-2005)
Canadian veteran of First World War learned hard work on the front lines
By Joe FRIESEN and David PYETTE, Monday, November 28, 2005, Page S11
Clare LAKING, a farm boy from Campbellville, Ontario, who never finished high school, volunteered for the Great War to spite his father and narrowly avoided being killed on his first trip to the front.
The first shell he saw landed 45 metres away. He started wondering what he had gotten himself into. A second shell came so close that he dropped to the ground in terror. Before he could get up, a third shell landed right in his trench, showering him with dirt and debris.
Mr. LAKING survived his first brush with death, and lived through many more in his two years as a signalman who repaired communication lines at the front.
Mr. LAKING died Saturday at the age of 106. There are now only four Canadian veterans of the First World War still living.
Charles Clarence LAKING, named for his father Charles, but known as Clare, was born on February 21, 1899, on a farm in Southern Ontario. He attended a one-room school five kilometres from his home, and grew up playing hockey on the flooded, frozen fields near the school.
In an interview a few years before his death, Mr. LAKING, who was always a keen joker despite his strict Methodist upbringing, remembered walking to school with his older brother Bob in a particularly harsh snowstorm. When they arrived, they were the only ones there.
"The storm was too severe for everybody else. We had our lunch with us, we were cold and hungry and we didn't want to start back home right away. So we filed the padlock off the door, went out to the woodshed, and got the fire going. We spent most of the day catching mice and putting them in the girls' pencil boxes. Most of the mice smothered before the next morning, but it was still quite a surprise for the girls."
After he finished elementary school, Mr. LAKING commuted by train to a business college in Hamilton for six months. At 16, he took a job in Campbellville with the Bank of Nova Scotia that paid $300 a year.
Two years later, in 1917, he hitched a ride to Guelph and joined the army.
"I went against my father's wishes. He was dead against war, and he was getting under my skin," Mr. LAKING said. "And it was in order -- as much as anything -- to shut him up that I enlisted.
"He as much as told me at the time that, 'If you enlist I'm through with you.' It was a hard decision. Nevertheless, I carried through and enlisted. And when I came back, everything was fine. Everything was forgiven."
Mr. LAKING was sent to England, where he trained as a Morse code operator before being sent to the front.
"In fact I could have had a nice soft job in England for the balance of the war, because they knew I had worked for a bank, and I was in the orderly room for a couple of months there. But I thought: 'I have come this far, let's go on.' "
The next two years were filled with adventure and sorrow, as many of the young Canadians he served with died in battle. But the best feeling came at war's end, as he travelled through liberated villages, and people lined the roads to wave and cheer.
He came home to Canada intending to move to Alberta, but ended up working in lumber yards. It was in the late 1920s that he began courting a legal secretary named Helen PATTERSON.
One night he was on his way to Helen's parents' house for a Saturday supper. He was wearing his best fedora, navy blue overcoat and white silk scarf.
"In those days they had iced toboggan slides in Riverdale Park. I met some boys there who persuaded me to come for a ride on the toboggan. At the bottom of the toboggan slide the light standards were surrounded by manure piles to guard against any accident.
"The toboggan headed right for the manure pile. I was lying on the bottom of the toboggan with the rest of the guys on top of me, so I couldn't get off. I rolled into the manure pile wearing my Sunday best. Then I had to visit Helen's parents."
Nevertheless, they were married in 1929, just before the stock market crash, and a year later their son Keith was born, followed by their daughter Sheila six years later.
In 1941, Mr. LAKING bought his own business, Danforth Wallboard, in Toronto's East End, and kept it for close to 25 years before selling in 1965.
Throughout his life he was an avid fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs and held season tickets until the age of 100. He was to have been honoured at a ceremony at the Air Canada Centre this month, but couldn't attend due to his failing health.
He was also an avid curler, who once scored an rare eight-ender, a feat of perfection when all eight of the team's rocks are closer to the centre circle than any of the opposition's.
"It's a once-in-a-lifetime feat, if you're lucky," he once said.
After retirement, he and Helen travelled the world together and spent time with their grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Helen died in 1993, and Mr. LAKING moved into the veterans residence at Sunnybrook hospital in 2003. He was in good health until a few weeks before his death, and kept a driver's licence until the age of 102.
The four remaining Canadian veterans of the First World War are Lloyd CLEMETT, 105, who is also at Sunnybrook; John BABCOCK, 105, who lives in Spokane, Washington.; William PROCTOR, 106, now residing in Salmon Arm, British Columbia; and Dwight WILSON, 104, a resident of Oshawa, Ontario

HARBRON, Sheila Elizabeth (née LESTER) B.A., B.Ed., U.E.
On Saturday, December 3 at Central Park Lodge Westside in Etobicoke, at the age of 79, after a long illness. Beloved wife of 55 years of John, sister of Richard LESTER of West Vancouver, dearly loved mother of Patrick of Kinderhook, New York Christopher of Regina, and Ann of Toronto, and grandmother of Katie and Jessie of Regina. Sister-in-law to the late Janet BRAIDE, and to Florence KRISTJANSON and Lillian P. DYSON- BABCOCK. Mother-in-law to Dana SPOT and John WESTHEUSER. Among Sheila's ancestors are John Pritchard (one of the original settlers of Rupert's Land, an area encompassing most of what later became Western Canada), Egerton Ryerson, a United Empire Loyalist and a leading figure in 19th-century Ontario education and politics, and Elizabeth Matheson, one of the first female doctors in Canada. Sheila lived a full and active life, and made many contributions to her community. Born in Toronto on November 29, 1926, and raised in that city, she attended Oakwood Collegiate and graduated from Trinity College at the University of Toronto in 1948. She married John Davison HARBRON on September 20, 1950 and devoted much of her energies over the next three decades to being a devoted wife and mother. She was the first social convener of the newly founded Victoria Symphony Orchestra in 1952, and was a scriptwriter for radio station CJVI in Victoria in 1952-53. The couple moved to Toronto in 1953. In the early 1970s, while still raising her family, Sheila began working as a substitute teacher. She returned to university part-time and earned her B.Ed. from the University of Toronto in 1976, and spent the next 20 years as a much-in-demand substitute teacher at Etobicoke high schools. Sheila was president of the Etobicoke branch of the Canadian Federation of University Women in 1966-67, and president of the Governor Simcoe branch of the United Empire Loyalists' Association of Canada from 1989-92. She was a member of the Ryerse-Ryerson Family Association, produced a family tree of Ryerson descendants in 1983, and was given a Volunteer Service Award by the government of Ontario in 1998 for her work with the United Empire Loyalists. Sheila was also an active member of St. George's Church-on-the Hill in Etobicoke, including serving as editor of the church newsletter The Lance from 1989-92. Sheila will be profoundly missed by her family and her many lifelong Friends. The family would like to convey their deepest gratitude to Sheila's caregivers and to Dr. Sam GREENSPAN at Central Park Lodge Westside, and all who have supported us through her long illness. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer Society of Toronto. The memorial and celebration of Sheila's life will be held at St. George's Church on-the-Hill on Thursday. December 22, at 11 a.m. Interment, to be attended by the immediate family, will be at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery at 2 p.m.
