McKENNA, Sean Patrick
It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of Sean Patrick McKENNA of Toronto, aged 41, on March 4, 2005. Sean died accidentally near his family cottage, a place he loved to be with his Friends and family. Sean could not have been a prouder father of Katie, aged eight, and Michael, aged four. He delighted in every moment of their lives and enthusiastically supported and participated in all of their interests. He was a gentle and loving father who, at six feet seven inches appeared imposing but tenderly ministered to their every need. He nurtured wonderful values, humour, and an interest in the world around them. He is the loving husband of Kathy HENDERSON, her best friend, her strength, and partner. Kathy and Sean were married May 17, 1991. Sean grew up in a wonderful family in Schomberg, Ontario. He leaves behind loving and much loved parents Neil and Ann McKENNA. He also leaves warm and devoted siblings - brother Neil (Carol) McKENNA, Stephen BOUCHER, Joe (Soen-Young) McKENNA, Gerry (Tammy) BARCLAY, and his sister Shannon (Ian) DAVIS. He also leaves loving in-laws Don and Mary HENDERSON, brother-in-law Michael (Lisa) HENDERSON and Jane (Sean) BAYLEY. He also leaves many nieces and nephews Neil, Liam, Evan, Maggie, Nolan, Sarah, Ben, Owen, Alison, Oliver, and Mary. Sean enjoyed his status as much loved uncle and he knew how to make each child feel special. He also leaves many aunts, uncles, and cousins. Sean enjoyed life immensely. He was defined by his ability to make Friends and to be grateful and happy for the company of them. He was also a wonderful friend, who combined rare depth and compassion with razor sharp wit. Sean loved a party. He was gregarious, charming, and extroverted and people loved to be around him. He had a sense of humour second to none, a wonderful speaking voice and he was often called upon to speak at his Friends' special occasions. His Friends are too numerous to count and live around the corner and all over the world. Sean graduated from King City Secondary School where he played both football and 'Reach for the Top'. He attended York University studying economics and then graduated from Osgoode Hall Law School in 1988 where he made some of his most abiding Friendships. He was called to the bar in 1990 and practised commercial litigation in Toronto. Many people who walked in Sean's office left as lifelong Friends. Sean lived in the Beach where he enjoyed coaching soccer, taking the kids tobogganing, running on the boardwalk and, of course, enjoying a pint in the local pub especially if it involved a trivia game and teasing his buddy Andrew. He was a member of the Balmy Beach Club, Scarborough Golf&Country Club and enjoyed being an active and giving member of the Beach community. Friends will be received at the Sherrin Funeral Home, 873 Kingston R oad (west of Victoria Park Avenue), Toronto (416-6982861), on Monday, March 7, 2005 from 2-4 and 6-9 p.m. A funeral mass celebrating Sean's life will be held at Saint John's Roman Catholic Church, 794 Kingston Road, on Tuesday, March 8 at 1 p.m. Cremation to follow. Sean was an uncommonly generous person who quietly supported causes and many people without fanfare. In lieu of flowers, a donation to a favourite charity would be appreciated. Sean loved children so any charity that supports them would be wonderful.

Bob MacDOUGALL, Royal Canadian Air Force Flier And Priest 1924-2004
Shot down over the North Sea, he made a pact with God, accepted the German surrender in Denmark and then came home to take his vows and work among hardened criminals. Later, he starred on 100 Huntley Street as a evangelical priest
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, January 29, 2005 - Page S7
No one wants to be the last man killed in a war.
Hitler had just four days to live when Bob MacDOUGALL found himself floating in the dark in the North Sea. Flying Officer MacDOUGALL had about another 60 years to live, most of them as a Jesuit priest, but all he knew then was that the Second World War was almost over and his situation was desperate.
Minutes before, he had been the tail gunner in a Halifax bomber, carrying war material to the resistance in Denmark. The crew was with 644 Squadron and had left their base in Dorset in England at 10 p.m. on April 26, 1945. To remain undetected by German radar, the plane flew between 50 and 100 feet above the water. "When we hit the west coast of Jutland, we had to climb," remembered Father MacDOUGALL in an interview in 1988.
A short while after they made their drop, they were hit by fire from the ground. According to Sandy BARR, a pilot who now runs the Squadron's historical website, their pilot ditched the plane just off the coast. All six crew members -- one Canadian, three New Zealanders and two Brits -- made it out alive.
The frigid water numbed his legs. Later in life, vascular problems would confine him to a wheelchair. Father MacDOUGALL wasn't particularly religious then, but as he struggled in the water, he formulated a pact. Years later, he told his brother Ian that he had made a promise to God. "He said, 'Save me from this and I'll spend my life doing good.' He was saved, and he kept his promise," said Ian MacDOUGALL.
After a spell in the water, the crew was picked up by Danish fishermen. As soon as the crew members landed, they left the fishermen, since the Germans shot anyone who helped a downed airman. Father MacDOUGALL wandered for a day or so, following instructions from the fishermen to look for a church steeple, since there he might find a sympathetic minister.
"I came to a brook and crossed over, but failed to see a German sentry on the other side. He raised his gun and brought me to a halt," recounted Father MacDOUGALL. He and at least one other crew member were arrested and put in a prisoner of war camp. Their internment didn't last long. On May 7, 1945, far away at a schoolhouse in the French city of Rheims, senior representatives of Hitler's defeated forces signed a ceasefire and the war in Europe was over.
In Denmark, the Germans wanted to surrender, but not to the Russians, who were fast approaching from the East and had already occupied an offshore island. The German command resolved to surrender to a British or American officer, preferably a general or even a colonel. They scoured their prisoner of war camps and all they could come up with was a 21-year-old Canadian flying officer who only days before had been swimming about in the North Sea. His officer rank was the second-lowest in the Royal Canadian Air Force, equal to a lieutenant in the army.
And that is how Bob MacDOUGALL came to accept the surrender of the German garrison in Denmark. He was carried through the streets of Vejle, the town nearest his PoW camp, and hailed as a liberator. At that moment, no one was more surprised than he. A month later, the picture of the celebration found its way back home and the face and name of "F/O Robert MacDOUGALL of 107 Henry Street, Halifax," was splashed across the front page of the Halifax Chronicle.
Father MacDOUGALL grew up in Nova Scotia but was born in Saskatchewan, where his father worked as a bank manager. The family moved to Halifax when he was a tot. Ralph MacDOUGALL was a businessmen, and although not rich, he was successful enough to raise a brood of children and send them all to university. He was a Presbyterian but his wife May WEBB was a Roman Catholic, so young Bob went to Saint Thomas Aquinas elementary school and St. Patrick's high school.
His mother died when he was quite young and his father married Gertrude MacNEIL, also a Catholic. Together, they raised his six children, as well as two more the couple would have together.
Bob MacDOUGALL joined the Royal Canadian Air Force from high school. He was the third member of his family to join, and all three went overseas -- his brother Bill as a soldier in the army and his sister Betty as an army nurse. Like everyone who joined the air force, he hoped to be a pilot. Instead, he became a tail gunner, the most vulnerable crew position on a Second World War bomber.
On his return to England from Denmark, he visited his sister at the hospital where she worked. In their happiness, a rather raucous party developed during which "he wrecked my bicycle," she recalled.
When he reached Halifax, Bob MacDOUGALL decided to attend St. Mary's University, where he was active in organizing the hockey team and also played football. Mindful of his promise to God, he considered becoming a journalist and instead opted for the priesthood. In 1950, he joined the Jesuits, the largest of all Roman Catholic religious orders. Many of his Friends bet he wouldn't last.
"It was tough for a war veteran who had seen the world to settle into that routine," said Elmer MacGILLIVRAY, who attended the Jesuit Novitiate with Father MacDOUGALL. "He was older than everyone else and the rules were tough for him."
Life was lived in silence, from rising at 5: 30 a.m. to chapel at 5: 55 a.m., followed by prayer from 6 to 7 a.m., a mass, and then breakfast 30 minutes later. "You could ask for sugar, but otherwise it was total silence," said Mr. MacGILLIVRAY, who later gave up the priesthood.
Because of his age and experience, Bob MacDOUGALL was ordained after 11 years instead of the usual 13. One of his first assignments was Loyola High School in Montreal. There he coached sports teams and taught several subjects, including Latin.
In one session, the boys learned to conjugate scio, the verb to know. In Latin, the words "I know," "you know," "he knows" are scio, scis, scit, with the "c" pronounced as an "h." His 14-year-old pupils fell about laughing at the sound of scit. To help them get over it, Father MacDOUGALL had them conjugate the verb aloud 30 times. The giggles soon disappeared.
Father MacDOUGALL had a varied life. He taught in schools, worked in parishes, was the priest at a veterans hospital and even worked as a missionary in South America. For several years, he served as the chaplain at Stoney Mountain Penitentiary near Winnipeg. There, he started a choir and convinced parishes in the area that his singing prisoners posed no danger. One of those he convinced was Elmer MacGILLIVRAY, who was then the parish priest at St. Ignatius of Winnipeg.
"On one trip, he stopped and he lost one prisoner when he escaped for a while. He was embarrassed about that," said Mr. MacGILLIVRAY who now lives in Edmonton.
Working at the maximum-security jail was tough and Father MacDOUGALL sometimes found it depressing to deal with hardened criminals. Often dismissed by cynical and intractable convicts as just another man in a dog collar to offer them empty promises and meaningless rituals, Father MacDOUGALL came to believe he was a failure and that the promise he made on that black, North Sea night had come to nothing. He was convinced he was a catastrophe as a prison priest and had not done good or helped any in his congregation. The truth, of course, was quite different. Until he learned otherwise, he grappled with more immediate demons at Stoney Mountain and found himself drinking too much. In the end, Father MacDOUGALL succeeded in conquering both depression and alcohol.
Perhaps the most astounding part of Father MacDOUGALL's religious life was his born-again status as a Christian evangelist. That occurred while working in a parish north of San Diego, California. Afterward, he remained a Roman Catholic and a Jesuit but embraced the scripture, the words of the Bible, and became the only Roman Catholic priest to preach on 100 Huntley Street, the Toronto-based evangelical Christian television channel.
He appeared on hundreds of television shows and started his own Food for Life program. Many conventional Catholics found his evangelism shocking and lodged complaints, but he persisted. "There are Catholic evangelicals, and he served them," said Rev. Jacques MONET, the archivist at Jesuit headquarters in Toronto.
Father MacDOUGALL was unapologetic about his evangelism. "I know God wanted me to be an evangelist to the world -- my Roman Catholic world," he said. A natural performer, he appeared on television and at prayer meetings, sometimes in his Roman collar, other times in an open-necked shirt.
Even his brothers and sisters, all of them religious Catholics, were sometimes startled at what their brother was up to. For all that, they are intensely proud of the homeless mission he set up in Toronto.
"I think one of the highlights of his life was setting up the Good Shepherd Refuge on Queen Street East near Parliament [in Toronto]. He wanted to feed the street people, and he worked at gathering food from local restaurants to feed them" said his brother Ian. "He started it in the mid 1970s and it's still open."
He made good on that promise.
Robert Leonard MacDOUGALL was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan., on February 27, 1924. He died on December 26, 2004. He was 80. He is survived by his brother Ian of Brampton, Ontario, his brother Lorne of Truro, Nova Scotia, and by his sisters Bette COLFORD and Margaret BOUDREAU of Halifax.

Family, Friends mourn popular student
'Loving and kind' Etobicoke boy dies in collision with garbage truck
By Anthony REINHART, Friday, May 27, 2005, Page A13
Of all the students at St. Ambrose Catholic School in Etobicoke, Ben PASKUS probably had a better grasp than most of the role of a grief counsellor.
For the past few months, the 11-year-old had been one himself, helping a Grade 6 classmate cope with the death of his father.
When they arrived at school yesterday morning, those same classmates learned they would no longer have Ben to lean on. He had been killed the evening before, under the wheels of a garbage truck, as he pedalled his bike toward home.
"And it's such a beautiful day," Lynn TOMASEK said through tears, standing outside the school in the sun on what was surely the darkest day of her four years as principal.
Police said the boy was cycling eastbound on the north sidewalk of Horner Avenue at about 6: 40 p.m. on Wednesday. As he crossed Sheldon Avenue, he rode into the path of a City of Toronto garbage truck that had been westbound on Horner and was turning right onto Sheldon.
Ben, who would have turned 12 on Monday, was pronounced dead a short time later at St. Joseph's hospital. The traumatized driver of the garbage truck was also taken to hospital. No charges had been laid as of yesterday.
Louise LEMIEUX, the boy's mother, issued a brief statement through the Ridley Funeral Home late yesterday, thanking her neighbours, her son's school and the emergency workers who tried to help him.
"It comforts me to know that the police, the firemen, the Emergency Medical Services and the staff at St. Joseph's Health Centre did everything they possibly could," said Ms. LEMIEUX, a single mother with two younger boys at home.
"When praying for my family, I ask that you include the other victim of the accident, the driver of the truck, who will also be in my prayers."
Ms. TOMASEK, the school principal, had been scheduled to attend a conference yesterday, and was at home getting ready that morning when her telephone rang. It was the school's secretary, saying she had heard a news report of a boy who had been struck and killed in the same general area as the school -- the Alderwood neighbourhood, south of Evans Avenue and east of Browns Line.
Afraid the boy might be a St. Ambrose student, the principal called police, who confirmed her fears.
"He was a gorgeous kid, so handsome," said Ms. TOMASEK, who cancelled her trip to the conference and had her husband drive her straight to the school.
"His face just kept coming up in front of me when we were driving," she said. When she arrived at the school, Ms. TOMASEK and her vice-principal, Jo CORSI, faced the delicate task of maintaining daily routines for the 400 junior kindergarten-to-Grade 8 students, while acknowledging the loss of a student his teacher called "a treasure."
"There is no formula," Ms. TOMASEK said. "We've never done this before."
Professional grief counsellors were available to help any students or parents struggling with the news. The school's guidance counsellors were also on hand.
Ms. TOMASEK read a brief dedication over the P.A. system after O Canada was played. Then, students who knew Ben were given time in class to share their memories of him and describe him, she said.
They used terms like "athletic," "loving and kind" and "energetic" to describe a boy who was known to offer help when needed, and to stand up for his Friends when he thought they needed defending.
"He was a little bit of a mischief maker when he was young," Ms. TOMASEK said, adding that Ben was once a regular visitor to her office for minor infractions, but had since become a leader among students.
"There are some kids in the school who you know better than others," she said, as some of the school's youngest students were finishing the remainder of their lunch break running around a nearby spruce tree. "He was definitely one of them."
As the noise died down and the kids filed back to class, Ms. TOMASEK struggled aloud with her own shock over the boy's sudden death.
"It just takes a split second, doesn't it?" she said, before she and Ms. CORSI headed back inside to the rest of their day.
A short distance away, at the scene of Wednesday's accident, fresh flowers and a teddy bear had been taped to a tree trunk. Three blocks east of that, a similar memorial still stands more than three years after another neighbourhood boy was killed.
Justin BOUDREAU- WEISS, 12, died while trying to cross Horner Avenue on November 30, 2001, prompting calls for the city to install a traffic signal along the busy stretch, which abuts an industrial area.
A bouquet of artificial flowers and a laminated poster commemorating his death are tied to the new traffic signal.
