Teen pals killed on way to movie
By Kelly PEDRO, Free Press Reporter
Nicholas GILLER, 17, entered every drama class with a cartwheel. Thomas ASH, 18, had a loud jovial laugh that didn't end until everyone else was in stitches, too.
The Seaforth Friends were on their way to watch a movie in Stratford with another friend when they were killed in a head-on crash Tuesday.
The collision happened on snow-covered Highway 8 about 8: 30 p.m. east of Seaforth.
The teens were passengers in a van driven by a 17-year-old male from Huron East.
The van went out of control and collided with an oncoming van, police said.
The 17-year-old driver and a woman and her 10-year-old daughter in the second van were in hospital yesterday.
The small Seaforth community of 3,000 and a Clinton high school yesterday grieved two teens who were going places in life.
"They were responsible and they were respectable," said Jane MORTON, a former principal of Seaforth public school while the two boys were pupils.
An aspiring paramedic, ASH had many qualities needed for the job, said Barry BROHMAN, a science teacher at Central Huron secondary school in Clinton, where ASH was a student until he graduated last month.
Like a paramedic, he was quiet leader who was always there when you needed him, BROHMAN said.
ASH was planning to go to college in the fall and was working at Tim Hortons in Clinton until then. Friends and teachers said the quiet and unassuming teen liked country music and jogged before school every day.
A camping and canoeing enthusiast, ASH was also involved in Scouts, where he met GILLER.
Those who knew GILLER said he was academically gifted with talents in writing, photography, filmmaking and computer animation -- an area where he wanted to pursue a career.
He had begun going to university campus tours and was supposed to go to a couple tomorrow, said Stephen OLIVER, who taught GILLER's digital media studies class.
But though the Grade 12 student was a perfectionist who took his work seriously, Friends said he was also outgoing and spontaneous.
At Halloween, he donned a bear costume and walked through the cafeteria giving out Seaforth bear hugs.
GILLER was generous with his time. He always helped with coffee houses -- talent nights -- at the school when he wasn't working at the Seaforth grocery store, OLIVER said.
Before he left Tuesday, GILLER was working on the Imago film festival to be held at the school in April, OLIVER said.
GILLER loved to play the guitar and trombone.
Three grief counsellors were at the high school yesterday to help students and staff -- distraught also because ASH's father, Mike, was the principal at Central Huron for several years.
"Teenagers are really well-equipped to support each other if they have a space and time to do that," said Judy STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, a member of the tragic events response team at the school yesterday.
Grief counsellors will be on call today.
The school is also planning a remembrance service after March break, she said.
Visitation for both teens is tomorrow from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Whitney Ribey Funeral Home, 87 Goderich St. W. in Seaforth.
ASH's funeral is Saturday at Northside United Church, 54 Goderich St. W. in Seaforth at 11 a.m.
GILLER's funeral is also on Saturday at Northside United Church at 2 p.m.

In memory of our Father, Grandfather and Great-Grandfather, Graham CHAMBERS, who passed away July 27, 2004.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you didn't go alone,
For part of us went with you,
On the day God called you home.
We think of you in silence,
And often speak your name,
Now all we have are memories,
And your picture in a frame.
Those memories are our keepsakes,
With which we'll never part.
God has you in His keeping,
We have you in our hearts.
Loved and never forgotten by Diana BROHMAN and family, Mary Ellen and Jim HANDS and family and Gloria CHAMBERS.

Allan BROMLEY, Nuclear Physicist: 1926-2005
Farm boy from the Ottawa Valley 'who was always experimenting' paid his dues at Atomic Energy of Canada before landing a job at Yale and becoming science adviser to the first President George Bush
By Randy RAY, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, February 26, 2005 - Page S7
Ottawa -- It was a case of what the scientist saw. Or how, in just a few short hours, a Canadian physicist became an American citizen.
It happened one day in 1970 when Allan BROMLEY, then a nuclear expert from Yale University and later science adviser to the first President George Bush, spied something that put his colleagues all in a panic.
"I had been shown the deepest, darkest secret known in the United States out at the Weapons Flats in Nevada," the farmer's son from the Ottawa Valley told the Toronto Star in 1992. "And just about the time it was all finished, someone said, 'Oh, my God, BROMLEY is not a citizen.'
A judge was hurriedly sent out from nearby Las Vegas and Dr. BROMLEY was sworn in on the spot so that "it became legal for me to know that deep, dark secret." To this day, no one, including his brother John, knows much about what Dr. BROMLEY laid his eyes on that day.
"It is true that he was being shown something and that someone realized there had been a security breach," says John BROMLEY. "He never did give me all of the details."
The renowned nuclear physicist's rise to the pinnacle of American science began under circumstances considerably less odd than the event that saw him suddenly become an American.
"He always liked science as a youngster, he was always experimenting with things," recalls John BROMLEY. "We had a lot of scientific equipment at our high school and one day at noon he got a concoction going and we heard the bang all the way down the street... it took the paint off the old tin ceiling in the room.
"Whenever he did something, he wanted to know why it did what it did. He was very inquisitive," says John, who with Allan, two other brothers and a sister, grew up on a family farm about 12 kilometres east of Pembroke, Ontario Today, John BROMLEY runs a farm and sawmill not far away near Westmeath, Ontario
Later in life, Allan BROMLEY's aptitude for science would elevate him to a leadership role in the national and international science and science-policy communities. In a statement made earlier this month, Mr. Bush said: "In my view he was a truly great leader in the U.S. scientific community. I know I felt privileged to have him at my side when I was president."
As Mr. Bush's top science adviser from 1989 to 1993, Dr. BROMLEY pushed for sizable increases in money for scientific research in a race to keep U. S. manufacturing ahead of Japan and Germany. He supported the expansion of the high-speed network that became the Internet, and, after years of questioning the science behind global warming, he was credited with persuading Mr. Bush to attend a summit on the issue.
Serving as the president's science and technology adviser and as chairman of the Office of Science and Technology Policy, Dr. BROMLEY was seen as one of the most influential science advisers ever. "He gave the president his best advice rather directly. That made him a superb adviser on hard issues," John Sununu, Mr. Bush's former chief of staff, told the New York Times.
Dr. BROMLEY was an early champion of what he called the "data superhighway," now known as the Internet. "Ten years from now," he said in 1991, "I'd like it to be widely available and looked upon like the telephone network."
Mr. Sununu said that Dr. BROMLEY "understood its value" both for global communication and exchanging information.
"Everyone in the area was very proud of his achievements," said says family friend Marie ZETTLER, a former editor at the weekly newspaper in Cobden, Ontario, who had interviewed Dr. BROMLEY three times over the years. "It was my understanding that George Bush senior worked very closely with Dr. BROMLEY and took what he said very seriously."
After attending high school in Westmeath and Pembroke, he earned bachelor's and master's degrees at Queen's University and a doctorate from the University of Rochester in 1952. After graduating from Queen's, he worked for five years as a senior research officer and head of a nuclear-physics section at Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd., at the Chalk River Nuclear Laboratories at Chalk River, Ontario
Canada is where he and some of his Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd. colleagues of the day would have preferred to stay. The prize, as far as they were concerned, was an assortment of vacancies that had cropped up at the University of Toronto's physics department. Indeed, things looked truly promising until they learned that the "chairman of the physics department at Toronto had stopped off at Glasgow on his way back from a summer vacation and had hired people there to fill all the positions," Dr. BROMLEY said in a 1992 interview. "And so we all decided we were going to jump ship."
He joined the Yale faculty as associate professor of physics in 1960 and was founder and director of the A. W. Wright Nuclear Structure Laboratory at Yale from 1963 to 1989. He carried out pioneering studies on both the structure and dynamics of atomic nuclei and was considered the father of modern heavy ion science, a major field of nuclear science. From 1972 until 1993, he held the Henry Ford II professorship in physics at Yale, and from 1970 to 1977, he served as chair of the Yale Physics Department. Dr. BROMLEY was dean of engineering at Yale from 1994 to 2000.
"Allan BROMLEY was a great scientist and a great leader. In three successive careers, he built our physics department, served the nation with distinction, and thoroughly revitalized engineering at Yale. With intelligence, energy, and enthusiasm he inspired countless students and colleagues," said Richard Levin, president of Yale. "Where he led, we willingly followed."
Dr. BROMLEY was hailed as an outstanding teacher; from 1965 to 1989, his lab at Yale graduated more doctoral students in experimental nuclear physics than any other institution in the world. Dr. BROMLEY published more than 500 papers in science and technology, and edited or authored 20 books.
As president of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the world's largest scientific society, and of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics, the world co-ordinating body for that science, he was one of the leading spokesmen for international scientific co-operation.
He received numerous honours and awards, including, in 1988, the U. S. National Medal of Science, the highest scientific honour awarded by the United States. He held 32 honorary doctorates from universities worldwide.
"What made him tick? It was his drive and his work ethic," says John BROMLEY. " Whether he was coiling hay or working around the farm, no matter what he chose to do you knew he was going to do his best."
After moving to the United States, Dr. BROMLEY continued to return to Westmeath, sometimes as often as twice a year, where he would stay at Nangor Resort and take the time to attend church and visit with family and Friends.
Occasionally, business brought him home. In 1994, he did a star turn as a guest speaker at the University of Ottawa's program of research in international management and economy. His speech revealed a certain degree of doubt about his southerly career moves. "It's a little sad," he told his audience. "I think that a great many of us at various times in our careers would have liked to have stayed in Canada and I think we could have made significant contributions."
He lamented that Canada's science and technology had long been on a starvation diet. "It is rather strange that having one of the best educational systems in the world, Canada has not been prepared to invest in the activities that will create opportunities for large numbers of the people that emerge from its educational system."
Even when they decided to stay, engineers and scientists often could not perform research and development if their employer was foreign-owned, he said. "Canada has been prepared to leave the companies who are headquartered outside of Canada with the freedom to do their research and development at their head office and not here. This has cost the country dearly."
Allan BROMLEY was born on May 14, 1926, near Westmeath, Ontario He died of a heart attack on February 10 in New Haven, Connecticut., after teaching a class at Yale University. He was 78. He is survived by his wife, Victoria SUTTON; son, David; daughter, Lynn; stepchildren, Summer Stephanie SUTTON and Remington John SUTTON; brother John and sister Dawn ANDERSON. He was pre-deceased by his first wife, Patricia.

SCOTT, Terrence Ian Snyder (July 30th, 1937 - February 4th, 2005)
Return unto thy rest, O my Soul; for the Lord hath dealt bountifully with thee. For Thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling. Psalms 116: 7,8
Terry died peacefully at home, with his wife Leanne at his side, after a very brief illness. Originally born in Shawinigan Falls, Quebec, Terry lived fo 30 years as a Mississauga resident. Today he celebrates a loving return to past dear ones waiting for him - grandmother Snyder, mother Cora, and father Thomas. Terrence is survived by his wife, Leanne (née SHARP,) his daughters Adrienne and Laura, his beloved sister Shirley and her husband Ian SMITH, and their five children and ten grandchildren. Terrence - a good man - nothing more, nothing less - loved learning and teaching. As a former Vice President of Montreal Engineering, Terry worked on corporate projects such as Ontario Hydro and Churchill Falls, and later, as an independent consultant, with the clients of Johnson-Diversey and others. He continued with his consulting until recently. He was also a 32nd Degree Mason of the Moore Sovereign. Terry's personal passion was building and flying model airplanes at the Oakville and Brampton Flying Clubs and tinkering in his workshop. Terrence will be cremated and have a Memorial Service at Glen Oaks Memorial Chapel and Reception Centre, 3164 Ninth Line (at Dundas). For service time please contact 905-257-8822. Special appreciation to Kamila SAWEZ of Spectrum Nursing, a pure gift of strength and pitbull focus; Dr. Douglas MAH, for his care and appreciation of Terry as the most challenging character in his practice; and Hospice of Peel (Debbie, Evelyn and Marc - like old Friends.) Thank you to Father Jon BROMLEY of St. Edwards parish, Sister Margaret (ret'd,) Mary MacKINNON, Carol MONDESIR and Michael WHITE/WHYTE for their spiritual guidance; and a true friend in every sense - Peter WLOKA - who was always there without being asked. Through all the Friends that gave their support and care so generously and freely, Terry came to truly believe and know that he was well loved and had touched many lives. Terrence had a child-like curiousity; an inquisitive mind, a quick wit, a generous heart and a loving Trust and Faith in God. He will be sorely missed. May he rest in unconditional Peace, Joy and Love.
Death is nothing at all. I have only slipped away into the next room. I am I, and you are you. Whatever we were to each other, that we still are. Call me by my old familiar name, speak to me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference in your tone, wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together. Pray, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without effect, without the trace of a shadow on it. It is the same as it ever was; there is no unbroken continuity. Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner. All is Well. Henry Scott Holland 1847-1918 Canon of St. Paul's Cathedral. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Model Aeronautics Association of Canada, Alcoholics Anonymous or the Hospice of Peel.
