Homeless man's defiant life honoured
BARTLEMAN met slaying victim
CROUTCH spoke of his mental illness
By John GODDARD, Staff Reporter
Paul CROUTCH attracted more attention at his funeral yesterday than he likely ever did in life, as the victim of a fatal beating that has galvanized the downtown homeless community and moved the Queen's representative in Ontario to sympathy.
Lieutenant Governor James BARTLEMAN and his small entourage mixed with social workers, street people, a few of CROUTCH's former Friends and his ex-wife at a shelter on lower Jarvis St. to pay tribute to CROUTCH as a man, not a statistic.
"I met him two years ago, at about 6 a.m.," BARTLEMAN told about 130 mourners at the yellow-brick chapel of the Salvation Army Gateway shelter, where CROUTCH sometimes stayed. "I was part of a Salvation Army breakfast run and I had on a Salvation Army jacket."
BARTLEMAN recalled getting out of a van and serving coffee and soup to a man sitting on a park bench.
The man, not aware he was speaking to the lieutenant governor, told of owning a newspaper in British Columbia and falling on hard times due to mental illness. BARTLEMAN recognized the same details in newspaper accounts of the beating.
"He was well spoken, obviously well read and very likeable," the lieutenant governor recalled.
CROUTCH, 59, could also be anti-social, paranoid, fatalistic and self-neglectful, Friends and other supporters said of his decline. And in the early hours of August 31, he was beaten to death in his sleeping bag next to the Moss Park Armoury at Queen and Jarvis Sts.
Three reserve soldiers with the Queen's Own Rifles, attached to the armoury, are charged with second-degree murder in the case. They are Brian DEGANIS, 22, Jeffrey HALL, 21, and Mountaz IBRAHIM, 23.
All three had been celebrating with other reservists the night before, after 10 days of war games at Canadian Forces Base Petawawa, northwest of Ottawa.
The anti-poverty group Toronto Disaster Relief Committee has called on Ontario's attorney general to prosecute the killing as a hate crime, saying CROUTCH was targeted as a homeless person.
The group also helped pay for CROUTCH's ex-wife, Marilyn HOWARD, to travel from Dawson Creek, British Columbia, to attend the funeral, and is arranging for her to meet senior Crown attorney Fred BRALEY this week to discuss the hate crime proposal.
At the crowded chapel yesterday, HOWARD spoke of CROUTCH as a spirited family man and entrepreneurial talent. The two met in Toronto in 1966, she said, and later moved to Vancouver and the northern British Columbia town of Dawson Creek.
In 1977, their daughter was born. She did not attend the service, but a recent photograph showing her as a smiling blonde stood on the altar next to a container holding CROUTCH's ashes, and two snapshots of CROUTCH playing with her as a baby.
CROUTCH stopped seeing his daughter when she was 14 as his creeping mental illness turned serious. The couple divorced in 1993. Their daughter recently graduated with an M.A. in plant sciences in the United States, HOWARD said.
"(Over the years), he owned six houses, including a section of farmland, and was a partner in seven businesses," HOWARD said.
At one point, he started his own weekly newspaper in Dawson Creek, the Mirror, which is still publishing. Earlier on, he worked as a travelling auto-parts salesperson for Ford.
"Every second week, he would drive 700 miles of the Alaska Highway," HOWARD said. "He was extremely well known. He'd get calls from all over the North -- 'Hey, I hear Safeway has a sale on lobsters, can you bring some with you?' He would do those things for people."

But it was in Gods hands
You are deeply missed, but your memory and spirit
Guides us and gives us strength.
Lovingly remembered, Tim, Debbie, Andrew, and Brianna

BRANAN, Allen Sr.
In loving memory of Allen BRANAN Sr.
One year ago, May 16, Gods angels came and took a very special father, grandfather, and friend away.
You did so many things for us
Your heart was kind and true
And when we needed someone
We could always count on you.
The special years will not return
When we were all together
But with the love within our hearts
You walk with us forever.
You left a place no one can fill
We miss you, Papa, and always will.
When our thoughts go back as they often do
We treasure the beautiful memories of you.
Sadly missed and forever loved, by Yvonne and Tony, Amanda, Nicolle, Patrick

Frank CLAIR, Football Coach: 1917-2005
Ottawa Rough Riders' coach and general manager did not always remember his players' names but he knew what it took to win the Grey Cup
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to the Globe and Mail, Tuesday, April 12, 2005, Page S7
Toronto -- He was known as the absent-minded professor whose players' names sometimes beat him but Frank CLAIR was an innovative Canadian Football League institution. Once, when injury forced a halfback out of an Ottawa Rough Riders' game, coach CLAIR shouted frantically for backup Billy Kline to replace him. It was too late -- he had been traded two years before.
While general manager with the Riders, Mr. CLAIR signed a player by the name of Paul Moses and was telexing the move to the Canadian Football League's Toronto offices. Mr. CLAIR started typing Paul Abraham and coach George BRANCATO, who was beside him, noticed the error and told his boss: "No, it's Paul Moses."
"Oh," Mr. CLAIR answered, "I knew it was some guy from the Bible."
Whenever Montreal Alouettes' star running back George Dixon came to Ottawa, Mr. CLAIR referred to him not by name, but by number. "Gotta watch that No. 28," Mr. CLAIR would say. If the player was Calgary Stampeders' linebacker Wayne Harris, it was, "Have to watch that No. 55." Even after star Ottawa quarterback Russ JACKSON had won a host of awards, he was still "No. 12" to Mr. CLAIR.
"On occasion, he would call me Russ but usually he called me by my number. That was one of his idiosyncrasies. He didn't remember names," Mr. JACKSON recalled.
"Frank was so excited he didn't know what was going on in a game," said Dave THELEN, a former Rider and Toronto Argonaut fullback.
Mr. CLAIR was a pioneer in the Canadian Football League, introducing the short-trap play in 1950 and in the same year introducing films as a key method of assessing plays and personnel. He also had a habit of turning around moribund teams and winning a host of Grey Cup titles.
Wouldn't you know it -- in 1950, with the help of that short-trap play and his game movies, Mr. CLAIR's Argos won the Grey Cup. Two years later, they did it again. Mr. CLAIR also coached the Riders to three Grey Cups -- in 1960, 1968 and 1969, and was general manager when they won again in 1973 and 1976. He was Canadian Football League coach of the year in 1966 and 1969. All told, he compiled a won-lost-tied record of 174-125-7 and his teams finished out of the playoffs only twice in 19 seasons.
Mr. CLAIR was born in small-town Ohio, graduated from Ohio State University and gained some playing time with the National Football League's Washington Redskins. Along the way, in the field house connecting the football and basketball fields at Purdue University, Mr. CLAIR met his wife Pat and they married in December of 1948.
Mr. CLAIR was the head coach at the University of Buffalo in 1949 when he was persuaded to go to Toronto and coach the Argonauts. "Al Dekdebrun, who was a Toronto quarterback and an All-American at Cornell, dropped by our training camp in Buffalo and said I should come to Toronto and coach," Mr. CLAIR recalled in 1980. "I had never seen an Argos' game but I was enthused about the spirit of the football people in Toronto."
Yet, when he looked at film Clips of the Argo games in 1949, he was appalled. "They had a terrible team, a bad program and the physical conditioning was bad," Mr. CLAIR said. "Recruiting was virtually non-existent. I put more emphasis on films and got the owners to do films of every game."
The result was the short-trap play. "I think that's what won the Grey Cup for us in 1950," he once said. "Billy Bass was the fullback and time and time again, the holes would open. It was something the other teams hadn't seen."
It was a simple play and one he always enjoyed describing. "It looked like a sweep, with both guards pulling. There was a lot of quick hitting. One guard would pull to trap the tackle and our tackle would block their linebacker, clearing a hole in the line."
Mr. CLAIR left Toronto after the 1954 season and worked for a spell at the University of Cincinnati only to be lured back to the Canadian Football League to take over the head-coaching duties in Ottawa in 1956. "Ottawa had a terrible team in 1955 -- terribly disorganized," he once said. "I told the Ottawa directors that it would take five years to build a championship team. And it was five years, right on the nose, in 1960 when we won the Grey Cup."
Over the years, Mr. CLAIR witnessed scores of talented Canadian Football League players such as Dave THELEN, Ron STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, Vic WASHINGTON, Bo SCOTT, Margene ADKINS, Whit TUCKER, Moe RACINE, Mike NELMS and Tony GABRIEL, but Russ JACKSON stood out as the "best ever."
"When he [ JACKSON] moved up behind the centre, he took command," Mr. CLAIR said. "He had a good voice... he made you think he was an army sergeant. We felt like we were going somewhere with him."
Mr. JACKSON and many others contend that one of the best offences ever assembled in Canadian Football League history was the late-1960s combo in Ottawa consisting of himself, Whit TUCKER, Mr. ADKINS, Mr. WASHINGTON and Mr. SCOTT.
"I spent some 12 seasons in Ottawa, all with Frank," Mr. JACKSON said. "The biggest memory I have of my time there was that he gave me a chance to play as a Canadian. He was very innovative in his offensive preparation when we practised Monday through Friday for a game on the weekend. We used the short-trap play in games some, but we also had the option play... in those days, I liked to run a lot."
Mr. CLAIR, a genius at snagging import talent, pulled off one of the greatest coups in the Canadian game by persuading two top-flight U.S. quarterbacks -- Condredge HOLLOWAY and Tom CLEMENTS to sign with the Riders on April 23, 1975. It was coincidence that they signed on the same day. Mr. CLAIR signed Mr. CLEMENTS in Pittsburgh and Mr. BRANCATO signed Mr. HOLLOWAY in Knoxville, Tennessee.
Frank CLAIR's run with the Riders lasted 25 years, a tenure that had its tenuous moments of rough waters, especially in the last two years when ownership wanted him out as general manager.
In 1978, in one of the stormiest controversies in Canadian Football League history, Mr. CLAIR was replaced as general manager by Jake DUNLAP. To compensate, he was offered a job as vice-president and director of player personnel with a $10,000 pay increase. Even so, Mr. CLAIR saw it as a demotion and quit. All he could understand was that he was losing his general manager's job and he wasn't being told why. Football fans were on Mr. CLAIR's side throughout the drama and club owner Alan WATERS and executive vice-president Terry KIELTY were seen as villains. The Rough Riders initiated new talks and Mr. CLAIR wound up with about $50,000 a season and the job the club had offered in the first place.
However, it was not the end of the affair. Several weeks before Christmas in 1980, the Riders said they wouldn't be renewing his contract. "I was disappointed, but I signed," Mr. CLAIR said at the time. "All I wanted to do was help the club."
All the same, he did not rule out the possibility that he would move to another Canadian Football League club. Indeed, he returned to the Argos in 1981 as a scout, tapping Canadian and U.S. college talent for seven years before heart surgery meant he finally had to pack in his football career.
Ottawa remained dear to the CLAIRs and for a time they kept their home in the Billings Bridge area and spent winters in Florida. In 1993, they moved permanently to Sarasota, Florida
That same year, Ottawa named the arena at Lansdowne Park arena the Frank Clair Stadium. Sadly, it hasn't done a thing for the city's football prospects. Ottawa hasn't come close to a Grey Cup since 1976 when Mr. CLAIR led his squad to a 23-20 victory over Saskatchewan.
Frank CLAIR was born May 12, 1917 in Hamilton, Ohio. He died March 27, 2005, in Sarasota, Florida, of congestive heart failure. He is survived by his wife and by a daughter.
