Const. Bill McCUTCHEON: Leader of the band
Police officer led host of parades
At 6-foot-4, he had the carriage of a warrior
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
For years he was the leader of the parade. Metro Toronto Police Pipe Band drum major Bill McCUTCHEON was at the head of the Santa Claus parades, Labour Day parades, Warrior Day parades, Grey Cup parades, the march past at the Police Games, the opening of the Royal Winter Fair and Kitchener-Waterloo's Oktoberfests.
At the annual Police Games held on summer nights at the Canadian National Exhibition, he led the march past; during the popular Musical Ride, the force's mounted unit did the charge straight at McCUTCHEON, standing two or three paces ahead of his band. The crowd always erupted as the horses stopped at what looked like just 10 metres before the man holding his ground with his mace held high.
He loved the spectacle more than they did.
Six-foot-4, he had the carriage of a warrior, the thrown-back head of a lion leading his pride whether he was leading the parade past the mayor of small town Ontario or Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at the storied Braemar Royal Highland Gathering of Scotland.
"He was a great big strapping fine-looking man," said Jocko THOMAS, the Star's legendary police reporter. "Millions saw him leading parades."
"He looked really sharp in front of the band," said former band piper John BREMNER. "He was a great guy to follow."
BREMNER and McCUTCHEON were young police officers in neighbouring downtown precincts when they signed up for a newly revived Metro Toronto Pipe and Drum Band in 1964. Originally started by Thomas ROSS in 1912, the marching band was disbanded in 1939, when Canada went to war. In a nod to its history and its original founder, the new police band chose the red Ross plaid as its official tartan.
Within months of joining, McCUTCHEON was elected drum major, responsible for not only leading the parade but also for the "dress, deportment and discipline," as BREMNER put it, of the 40 to 50 members.
"He was a stickler for punctuality," BREMNER remembered. "If Bill promised to be there at 2 p.m., we moved at 2 p.m."
McCUTCHEON retired from the band in 1975, when he retired from the police -- "we wished he could have stayed with us," said BREMNER -- but he kept marching at the head of the pack for the Ontario Royal Canadian Legion Pipes, Drums and Colours.
A year earlier, he had been asked to lead the Legion massed bands at Florida's New Year's Eve Rose Bowl parade, a huge honour at a time when the streets were painted white for the televised nighttime parade. He returned two more times: in 1976 and then in 1991.
In 1978, McCUTCHEON led the Ontario Royal Canadian Legion Pipes, Drums and Colours along the 10-kilometre route of the Tournament of Roses Parade, lined with 1.5 million cheering spectators in California. They made repeat appearances in 1981, 1989 (when McCUTCHEON had just undergone treatment for cancer of the colon six weeks before) and in 1994.
They marched the dusty main street of Tijuana, Mexico, and in the Cavalcade Parade down Princes St. in Edinburgh. They were cheered at the Punch Bowl and Hula Bowl in Hawaii. The first time they appeared at Braemar, they marched past the Duke of Fife because Queen Elizabeth was mourning the assassination of her uncle, Lord Louis Mountbatten, but on their third tour of Scotland in 1990, it was the royal couple on the stand.
A local newspaper photographer caught Prince Philip leaning forward and peering at McCUTCHEON's medals when he was presented to the pair.
"It was Bill's police service medal and police war veteran medal, that's what Philip was interested in knowing about," said McCUTCHEON's wife, Hilda.
But McCUTCHEON's favourite parade was always Toronto's Santa Claus Parade. No contest.
His daughters would be bursting with pride.
"We'd scream from the sidelines when we saw him," said Karen ZWARYCH. "He always looked straight ahead, but he always gave us a wink. We knew he knew we were there."
"I would say to all the people next to us 'That's my Dad,' " said Janice FATTORE.
Sometimes, if there was a break in a parade, Hilda McCUTCHEON would tell her daughters, "Bet that's your father."
He loved making an entrance, even though he insisted in a 1975 interview for a police magazine that he wasn't "the type of show-off who struts like a peacock."
McCUTCHEON had a cache of stories: the time the band was marching at the Greenwood Race Track and they turned left and he went straight ahead, or the times he missed the toss of the mace.
"It's the guys in the band who make it the hardest on you, like the piper who has threatened to buy me a baseball glove," he told the police magazine.
In his memoirs, McCUTCHEON described marching in Nathan Phillips Square to mark Police Week. He was doing "the walk" manoeuvre with his mace -- stabbing the ground to the left and right as he marched -- when the mace became embedded in a crack between the concrete slabs. He kept right on marching without his mace, then turned the startled band around and led them back where he retrieved the mace on his return.
During another Yonge St. Daffodil Day parade, the mace slipped out of his hand and bounced down the road. When he bent to retrieve it, his feather helmet fell off. The crowd gave him an ovation as he caught it.
The son of a streetcar driver, McCUTCHEON grew up in west Toronto. He always loved uniforms: he belonged to the Boys Brigade and, when he was 17, he lied about his age to enlist in the air force but never saw any overseas action, much to his disgust. A neighbour suggested he join the police. The neighbour was Jack ACKROYD who would go on to become Toronto's chief of police. He loved being a police officer, but it was when he joined the pipe band and later the policemen's chorus that he combined both his passions. Possessed of a spectacular rich bass voice, he had long sung at church minstrel shows and as a soloist in the choir at then Westmoreland United Church. During his 28 years with the force, he sang the national anthem at the Police Games and was the soloist at the annual police Remembrance Day ceremony at Yorkminster United Church.
He sang at both daughters' weddings and, always, around the house. Until last October, he sang with the Seranato Singers, a seniors singing group, stopping only because he was having trouble breathing. Having survived a bypass in 1978, colon cancer and an operation for an aneurism in 1998, he died January 20 at age 78 of melanoma.
At his funeral, members of the Toronto police chief's ceremonial unit were honorary guards and fellow police war veterans the pallbearers. A piper played behind the hearse and at the gravesite.
The family buried him with the mace he had carried for more than 40 years.
It was their way to ensure that he got to lead his last parade.

100 years of memories
The area has lost five centenarians in the last few weeks, but they all left loving legacies.
By Debora VAN BRENK, Free Press Reporter
Carmela Maria FARRUGIA never had many material possessions but, in raising her 10 children, she had all the riches of the world. By the light of kerosene lamps she would knit, play piano and cook for her family in Malta. If any young ones fussed, she would pop a chocolate sweet into their mouths.
She loved chocolate all her life, eldest son Frank says. Eating it or sharing it, she took equal pleasure from both.
Last week, her family opened boxes of chocolates for those who paid their respects to the family matriarch at London's Donohue Funeral Home. "I knew she would do the same," Frank says.
When FARRUGIA died March 6 at the age of 106, she was likely the oldest person in the region.
In the last 10 days, Southwestern Ontario has lost the collective wisdom and guidance of five centenarians.
They were born before radio, automobiles and airplanes.
They grew up without electricity, raised families when cars were a luxury and retired as colour televisions became commonplace.
And they lived long enough to glimpse the future -- animal cloning, cellphones, climate change -- though their great-grandchildren's eyes.
Until this month, they were among the 3,795 Canadians to have lived 100 years or more.
Census data show a Canadian baby born today can expect to live 78 years.
The life expectancy for a Canadian child born in 1898 isn't known because it wasn't tracked then.
But if U.S. data have any parallel here, consider this: the life expectancy for an American baby born in 1900 was 46 years.
Here, then, a glimpse into some local lives lived well:
The pace of her last 51 years never quite matched that of Anna MISHCHENKO's first half-century.
And that was just fine with her, says her youngest son, Tony MISHCHENKO.
Born in Russia in 1903, MISHCHENKO survived the horrors of the First World War.
Then, when the 1917 Russian Revolution turned the country upside-down, she and her husband were on the "wrong" side; they lived under assumed names in a new regime with a long memory.
Then came famine. Then the Second World War.
They fled Russia with their three sons and, after a five-year stopover in Belgium, arrived in Canada in 1951.
"Canada is where they found peace, freedom. But on the other hand, they were lonely" to be so far from home.
But MISHCHENKO says there was larger purpose in all his mother did: "All her life was to preserve her family.
"This was her life," he says.
She found comfort in church and in the Bible: The epic film The 10 Commandments was her favourite movie.
And the world stopped whenever the western Bonanza came on television. "She would say, 'Boy, these guys are just like the (Ukrainian) Cossacks. They're tough and they're brave.' "
She doted on all the generations that followed hers.
"Her children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren were her joy."
Carmela FARRUGIA
Francesca DI FABRIZIO, born in Italy in 1901, was the glue that kept her family strong.
Sometimes she would tell stories of her childhood, when 20 family members would live in the same home, daughter Anna PICCOLI says.
Her three daughters grew up and married and moved to Canada. They persuaded Francesca and her husband, Filippo -- "the only man for me," she always said -- to come here in 1968.
Though she couldn't speak much English, she easily made Friends and earned strangers' respect.
"Nonna," as the children and grandchildren called her, stayed with her daughters and their families until moving to a nursing home 15 months ago.
Maria ZIMMERMANN says her grandmother loved to dress up, prayed for everyone and never failed to stash chocolates in her room for the grandchildren.
"She had a sparkle in her eye and she exuded love."
Harvey MILLER
Whether teaching young farm kids or volunteering with the Rodney Kiwanis Club, where he was a charter member, Harvey MILLER was a gentleman and a scholar, says daughter Marilyn RUMBLE.
"His life was helping people."
MILLER was born on a farm near Rodney in 1902. He taught in a rural school, then became principal, for two decades, of Rodney public school.
Rumble recalls how music was always part of their lives -- MILLER played piano and organ in two churches, starting at age 12 -- and how she once sang at a political nomination meeting for Paul Martin, Sr.
MILLER "had a real nice way with people," from his Friendship with Martin to his mediation help with immigrant families, she recalls.
He was married for more than 70 years to Wilden, who died in 1997, and helped raise three daughters.
RUMBLE planned to sing Promise of Joy at the funeral: "Now we celebrate his life."
Carmela FARRUGIA
In 1946, Carmela FARRUGIA's husband, John died, leaving her to raise 10 children alone. The youngest was six.
But where others might have despaired, she filled their home in Malta with music, hope and learning, son Frank recalls.
She made sure all her children -- eight remain -- had the chance to attend private schools.
"She was a very proud woman that she could raise 10 children without a father," Frank says.
And in 1958, at 60, she left Malta for Canada, where Frank had found work.
"She loved it here," with the flowers and the space, Frank recalls.
Of the many world changes that took place in her life, airplanes fascinated FARRUGIA most.
And even when hip problems forced a move into Marian Villa, she kept a protective eye on her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.
And always, her faith and family -- and her chocolates -- sustained her.
"She was a very happy lady," Frank says.
Century Club
Five London-area residents older than 100 have died this month:
- Carmela Maria FARRUGIA- SANTANGELO, 106, died March 6 in London.
- Francesca DI FABRIZIO was 103 when she died in London on March - Harvey MILLER of Rodney died a week ago, age 102.
- Idella DEMERS, 102, died last Thursday in Wallaceburg.
- Anna MISHCHENKO, 101, died last Monday in London.

Volunteer, business 'pillar' LOCKYER dies
By Debora VAN BRENK, Free Press Reporter
As a corporate lawyer, Peter LOCKYER used his expertise and entrepreneurial skills to start a financial services company and serve as chairperson of a London-based bank. As a community member, LOCKYER gave his time to help the Anglican Church, Huron University College and other causes.
"He was the kind of guy who said, 'Something should be done -- let's do it,' Peter SPENCE, LOCKYER's law partner, said yesterday.
"If I had to use a phrase to describe Peter, it would be 'energetic enthusiasm,' " he added.
LOCKYER, 61, collapsed and died suddenly Monday while running with his wife, Gail.
A corporate lawyer with Lockyer Spence in London, LOCKYER was chairperson of Pacific and Western Bank of Canada, a London-based institution with more than $1 billion in assets.
He also was founder of Oak Trust Co. financial services.
LOCKYER's latest venture was a bid, with his Friends Andy SPRIET and Bob SISKIND, to buy the former central library on Queens Avenue and convert it to offices.
Yesterday, Friends described LOCKYER as energetic and athletic, committed to enterprise and volunteerism.
"London has lost a pillar in the business community," said Pacific and Western president David R. TAILOR/TAYLOR, who for 20 years has counted LOCKYER as a friend and colleague.
"He was enthusiastic, passionate, highly motivated."
And publicly low-key, said Bishop Bruce HOWE of the Anglican diocese of Huron.
"He wasn't standing up looking for accolades. But those of us who have the privilege of working with him in some of his volunteer activities knew he was there and was committed."
LOCKYER headed the diocese's investment committee and was past chairperson of the executive board of Huron University College. He served both groups "with distinction," HOWE said.
LOCKYER's sudden death shocked all who knew him.
"Peter was one of those fellows you'd think would live to 100 easily. He was the epitome of health," TAILOR/TAYLOR said.
LOCKYER was an exceptional tennis player and an avid skier who also worked out regularly in his home gym.
He was proud of a recent series of routine medical tests that showed he was in tip-top shape: "He was like a kid with a straight-A report card," SPENCE said.
He was a teen when he first met LOCKYER 31 years ago and asked the lawyer for career advice. LOCKYER became a mentor and a friend.
"We had more of a brother relationship than anything," SPENCE said of the man he described as a visionary.
"He wasn't in the spotlight a lot," SPENCE said, "but he had a lot of influence, positive influence, in the city. I don't think we or the community will fully appreciate the loss for a while."
LOCKYER also was past-president of the London Hunt and Country Club and past chairperson of the National Seniors Tennis Championships.
LOCKYER is survived by his wife, three daughters and his father. Visitation is tomorrow at the James A. Harris Funeral home, with the funeral to be held Friday at 11 a.m. at St. Paul's Cathedral.
