Night of horror
Friends were unable to prevent the fight between buddies that left one of them dead on the street in a pool of blood with his girlfriend weeping over his body.
By Jennifer O'BRIEN, Free Press Reporter
A 20-year-old London father is dead, one of his best Friends is accused of killing him and his heartbroken girlfriend and Friends are left wondering why it happened. James BLAIR, the guy "who always had a smile," died Wednesday night after he was stabbed in the stomach in front of a northwest London apartment building.
Eighteen-year-old Mwangi GETHIGA -- known as Kuggy to his Friends was charged yesterday with second-degree murder.
BLAIR and GETHIGA had a fist fight in the apartment at 75 Oakville Ave. that is across the hall from where BLAIR's girlfriend, Sonyda KHOUN, lives with their son, Latteral, Friends said yesterday.
"He was the nicest kid, man. He always had a smile on his face," said Sok PHUM, 26, one of many Friends who gathered outside the building yesterday.
"He always brought you up. That's the way he was."
Still stunned by what they'd seen the night before, Friends were struggling to make sense of what had happened to "one of the coolest kids around."
"We were all sitting around the apartment like always," said Jon COLEBY, 19, one of three roommates who live in the apartment where the fight broke out. "We are all really good Friends. They (BLAIR and GETHIGA) hung out every day."
As he spoke, COLEBY occasionally put a hand up to the bridge of his nose, where a purple bruise reminded him of the fight he'd tried desperately to stop the night before.
A crowd of Friends, including BLAIR, GETHIGA and COLEBY, were drinking beer and planning to take out turntables later to do some freestyle rapping, COLEBY said.
BLAIR was a gifted freestyler, he said. "And when he got drunk, he loved to freestyle."
But that night the skinny, fun-loving dad with the dreadlocks never got the chance.
BLAIR became drunk and obnoxious, said Jessica ROBERTS, 18, who lives with COLEBY and another roommate in the apartment.
"He just started being rowdy and annoying," she said.
Some of the Friends told BLAIR to leave, and he did. But about 10 minutes later, he came back into the ground-floor unit.
GETHIGA then told BLAIR to "get out, that he wasn't wanted in there at the time," COLEBY said.
BLAIR took issue with that and the two Friends started pushing, then punching each other, while others tried to break it up, COLEBY said.
BLAIR left the apartment. But when he was outside, he shouted a racial slur to GETHIGA, he said.
"(GETHIGA) just went in the kitchen and grabbed a knife," COLEBY said. "We all started fighting with him, trying to get him to drop the knife, but he was fighting and punching, he punched me in the face... and we couldn't get it."
GETHIGA made his way out.
By the time COLEBY got outside, BLAIR was down in front of the building, lying in a pool of blood only metres away from his baby boy, his girlfriend and his Friends.
"There was all this blood and his face was so pale," COLEBY shuddered. "He was gurgling."
It was chaos.
BLAIR's girlfriend, Khoun, raced outside. At one point, she held her baby's father in her arms, screaming and crying.
She also called 911, while Friends tried cardio-pulmonary resuscitation.
"She was hysterical," said COLEBY. She was holding BLAIR on the ground, crying out 'Who did this?'
At a friend's house later yesterday afternoon, the devastated young mother could hardly speak.
Holding her 23-month-old in her arms, tears rolled down her cheeks.
Then Khoun asked for a pen and paper to write something to her boyfriend of four years.
"We miss your smile, goofiness and loud mouth," she wrote. "Latteral and I will always love you deep within our hearts... We didn't lose anything. We gained an angel," she wrote.
BLAIR was born and raised in London, went to Sir Wilfrid Laurier secondary school and was taking adult education when he died, his Friends said.
"We're all Friends. We all grew up together," said Ken PHOMSAMOUT. "He had this great big smile."

Crash victims identified
By Jennifer O'BRIEN, Free Press Reporter
A London man and his 16-year-old son were identified yesterday as the two people killed when their car struck a tree Wednesday afternoon. Alexander RUMBOLD, 51, and his son, Allan RUMBOLD, died on a road blanketed by snow after the crash just east of Kilworth at Woodhull Road and Gideon Drive, police said.
London police were still investigating the circumstances of the crash. Original reports that a man and woman were killed in the incident were wrong, police said.
A dog that had also been in the car and was injured in the crash was taken in by Animal Care and Control.
Also, Lambton Ontario Provincial Police identified a Sarnia woman killed hours after the Kilworth-area crash, when her van collided with a minivan near Reeces Corner, east of Sarnia.
Laurie COLEMAN, 46, died at the scene of the crash on London Line about 6: 30 p.m. Wednesday, after her eastbound van spun out of control into a school bus.
Police were still investigating that crash.
Meanwhile, London police last night were investigating a single-vehicle crash that sent three teens to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The crash occurred about 8 p.m. on Wellington Road, south of the Glanworth curve, when a southbound vehicle carrying the three went out of control and plunged into a ditch.

WALLNER, Joseph Peter " Joe"
Died peacefully, on March 2, 2005 at Wellington House Nursing Home in Prescott, Ontario, after several years of declining health, in his 88th year. Born April 11, 1917 in Hanover, Ontario, and a long-time resident of Ancaster and Burlington, Joe was known throughout his life as a fine gentleman who championed through his actions his belief in God, family, his country and the credit union movement. Active in credit unions from an early age, Joe joined the staff of CUNA Mutual in 1951 and travelled extensively in Canada, the U.S. and abroad to support the growth and development of credit unions, and insurance services for credit unions. In 1954-1955 he was president of CUNA (Hamilton) Credit Union. He established many lasting Friendships through his business travels, retiring as Senior Vice President, Corporate Relations, for CUMIS in 1982. He also was active in the Burlington Chamber of Commerce, serving as its president in 1976. In World War 2, Joe served first in the Merchant Marine and then more than three years in Ferry Command, delivering planes and equipment across the Atlantic. His patriotism was still evident years later when he organized a door-to-door campaign in Burlington to encourage families to proudly fly their country's flag on Canada Day. Dozens of families took part, including virtually everyone on Joe's street. Joe was a founding member of two Catholic parishes and was a founding director of St. Louis Parish Credit Union, which became Waterloo Regional Credit Union and where he retained membership for more than 50 years. He was a member of Saint John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church in Burlington for 37 years. The family express their deepest appreciation to Father John APPELMAN and the Pastoral Care Group at Saint Mark's Parish, Prescott, who supported Joe's faith in many kind ways in recent years. Joe's other great faith was in medical practitioners, from whom he received stellar care, particularly in his declining years. The family would especially like to thank the caring and compassionate staff at Wellington House, where he spent his last four years, as well as Dr. Maung Tun ZAW of Burlington and Dr. Gun BHATT of Prescott. Joe was the dear father of John WALLNER (Sheila) of Gatineau, Quebec, and Eloise COLEMAN (Tom) of Toronto and Brockville. He was predeceased by two loving wives: Audrey Mary BENINGER, (1981,) and Margaret WHITELEY, (1992.) He is survived by his sister Salome (Mrs. Dan DACEY) of Thunder Bay, and brother George WALLNER (Phyllis) of Guelph, and was predeceased by three siblings; Sister Mary SALOME, S.S.N.D.; Gertrude (Mrs. James DAVIDSON) of Kenora; and Flight-Sergeant John WALLNER of Hanover, who was shot down in action August 18, 1943, 15 months after serving as Joe and Audrey's best man. He was 23. Loving sisters and brothers-in-law include Rosemary TRAPLIN (Jack) of Kitchener, Elaine COUCH (Hank) of Calgary, Doris (Mrs. Tom) BENINGER of Orleans, Loretto (Mrs. Gerald) BENINGER of Belleville, Monique (Mrs. Len) BENINGER of Sorel, Quebec, Helen YEO (Kenneth) of St. Catharines, Irmgard (Mrs. Ralph) ROEDIGER of Hamilton and, deceased, Marguerite (Mrs. Lawrence) COLIGAN of Morrisburg, and Bernice MURPHY of Toronto. Joe was also very close to dozens of nieces and nephews. Visitation at the Smith's Funeral Home, 485 Brant Street (one block north of City Hall), Burlington (905-632-3333) Friday March 4th from 3 to 5, and 7 to 9 p.m. with Vigil Prayers at 8: 30 p.m. Mass of Christian Burial at Saint John's Church, Burlington (Brant Street at Blairholm) on Saturday, March 5, 2005 at 10: 00 a.m. Interment Holy Sepulchre Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family would be grateful for expressions of sympathy through donations to School Sisters of Notre Dame Mission Fund, c/o Notre Dame Motherhouse 1921 Snake Road, Waterdown Ontario L0R 2H0.

WILSON, Elizabeth "Betty" Agnes (née HEFFORD/ TOON)
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Elizabeth (Betty) Agnes WILSON (née HEFFORD/ TOON) wife, sister, mother, aunt, cousin, grandmother, greatgrandmother, friend and lady. Betty died peacefully on September 18th, 2005 at Princess Margaret Hospital at the age of eighty-one surrounded by her loving husband and family. Betty was born July 28, 1924 at Toronto, Ontario. Betty is survived by her husband of 37 years William (Bill) G. WILSON, her son and daughter in law, Garry and Karyn TOON and her daughter, Elizabeth TOON, her four stepsons and their partners: Tony and Susan, George and Myrna, Kevin and Denise, and Scott WILSON, as well as her grandchildren: Maryrose VERNER (née COLEMAN,) Robert COLEMAN, Emily REA (née COLEMAN), Kali COLEMAN; Joanne, Robert, Danielle Mae and Geordie TOON; Emma, Craig, Kelly, Kevin and Christopher WILSON; her brother and sister-in-law, Lloyd and Marylou HEFFORD, along with more than thirty-five cousins, nieces, nephews, and great-grandchildren. Betty's absence will be palpable for us all. Betty loved to travel and her journeys with Bill took her the world over. One trip that she talked about often was to South Africa for a photo safari. She also organized a family trip with her cousin Nancy DATTRINO to England, Scotland and Wales on a quest to discover her lineage. Betty and Bill enjoyed winters in Florida away from the cold of Toronto and they would invite family and Friends to come and visit for winter holidays. The tradition of toasting the sunset over the gulf was started at Madeira Beach and continued when they moved to St. Augustine to be closer to her niece Debbie CASCADDEN. There was a cottage at Belmont Lake that was a special place for Betty and her family and is the source of many funny stories. Then later on when Betty and Bill bought a cottage on Paint Lake they would host tremendous parties for the whole gang. When she set the table you felt honoured to be there with her. When Betty had a party there was always dancing, and her husband continued to dance with her right to the end. Betty enjoyed sitting on the deck swing and watching the hummingbirds feed and the evening sunsets were so beautiful over the lake that the whole cottage would be filled with a golden light. Betty was predeceased by her parents, Tom and Mae HEFFORD (née JONES,) her niece Elizabeth-Anne HEFFORD and her grand_son Simon WILSON. Visitation will be held Sunday, September 25th at 11: 00 a.m. followed by a service at 1: 00 pm at Turner and Porter Funeral Home, 436 Roncesvalles Avenue in Toronto, Ontario. The family of Betty WILSON wishes to acknowledge the excellent care and compassion given by the Princess Margaret Hospital staff. Words alone cannot express our thanks for the support given our family during Betty's last days. Donations in Betty's memory may be made to Casey House Hospice, the Scott Mission or a charity of choice.

WILSON, Elizabeth "Betty" Agnes (née HEFFORD / TOON)
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of a dear wife, sister, mother, aunt, cousin, grandmother, great-grandmother, friend and lady. Betty died peacefully on September 18th, 2005 at Princess Margaret Hospital at the age of eighty-one surrounded by her loving husband and family. Betty was born July 28, 1924 at Toronto, Ontario. Betty is survived by her husband of 37 years William (Bill) G. WILSON, her son and daughter-in-law, Garry and Karyn TOON and her daughter, Elizabeth TOON, her four stepsons and their partners: Tony and Susan, George and Myrna, Kevin and Denise, and Scott WILSON, as well as her grandchildren: Maryrose VERNER (née COLEMAN), Robert COLEMAN and Emily Rea (née COLEMAN) Joanne, Robert, Danielle Mae and Geordie TOON; Emma, Craig, Kelly, Kevin and Christopher WILSON; her brother and sister-in-law, Lloyd and Marylou HEFFORD, along with more than thirty-five cousins, nieces, nephews, and great-grandchildren. Betty's absence will be palpable for us all. Betty loved to travel and her journeys with Bill took her the world over. One trip that she talked about often was to South Africa for a photo safari. She also organized a family trip with her cousin Nancy DATTRINO to England, Scotland and Wales on a quest to discover her lineage. Betty and Bill enjoyed winters in Florida away from the cold of Toronto and they would invite family and Friends to come and visit for winter holidays. The tradition of toasting the sunset over the gulf was started at Madeira Beach and continued when they moved to St. Augustine to be closer to her niece Debbie CASCADDEN. There was a cottage at Belmont Lake that was a special place for Betty and her family and is the source of many funny stories. Then later on when Betty and Bill bought a cottage on Paint Lake they would host tremendous parties for the whole gang. When she set the table you felt honoured to be there with her. When Betty had a party there was always dancing, and her husband continued to dance with her right to the end. Betty enjoyed sitting on the deck swing and watching the hummingbirds feed and the evening sunsets were so beautiful over the lake that the whole cottage would be filled with a golden light. Betty was predeceased by her parents, Tom and Mae HEFFORD (née JONES,) her niece Elizabeth-Anne HEFFORD and her grand_son Simon WILSON. Visitation will be held Sunday, September 25th at 11: 00 a.m. followed by a service at 1: 00 p.m. at Turner and Porter Funeral Home, 436 Roncesvalles Avenue in Toronto, Ontario. The family of Betty WILSON wishes to acknowledge the excellent care and compassion given by the Princess Margaret Hospital staff. Words alone cannot express our thanks for the support given our family during Betty's last days. Donations in Betty's memory may be made to Casey House Hospice, the Scott Mission or a charity of choice.

Long-time resident of Leaside, passed away peacefully on Sunday, November 20, 2005 at the age of 92. Predeceased by her beloved husband of 63 years, Brock (Horace William), her oldest son Bob (Robert John), and her brothers Thomas Chester and Geoffrey Gardiner COLEMAN. Cherished mother of Bill (William Charles;) Linda Lee McCARTHY and Mary Anne WELSH. Dear sister of Shirley GAWLEY of Williamsville, New York and sister-in-law Vimy COLEMAN of Leaside.

Fondly remembered by her many nieces and nephews, and very dear Friends, Inez VALE and Noreen MacINTOSH. Born in Toronto, Phyllis spent her early years in Chapleau, Ontario and Orlando, Florida. In the 1930s, the family returned to Toronto where she met and married her life partner, Brock. Following their wedding celebration in May 1937, the couple sailed to England where they planned to start their married life. Rumours of the coming war and the urging of their families persuaded them to return to Toronto. Establishing their home in the new community of Leaside, they designed and built family homes throughout Leaside and other new Toronto subdivisions until the 1970s. Snow Birds in retirement, they wintered in Florida with neighbours and Friends. Mother of four and partner in their business, Phyllis found time to be an active member of the volunteer community, most notably the Canadian Cancer Society, Girl Guides and Boy Scouts, Home and School and, in retirement, the Inter-generational Program at Northlea Public School. Her love of life-long learning, the opera, symphony and theatre, needlecrafts and gardening were a great joy to her. She was a caring and supportive wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend. She truly lived a full life. May the winds of love blow softly and whisper so you'll hear, we will always love and miss you and wish that you were here. We know how much you missed Dad. You are with him now. We wish to thank the staff at Donway Place and North York General Hospital for their loving care. The family will receive Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), from 7-9 p.m. on Tuesday, November 22nd.

COLEMAN, William Patrick
Bill passed away suddenly, unexpectedly and far too soon on Sunday, November 20th, 2005 at the age of 53 while doing one of the things he loved best, playing hockey. An established contractor and business man, accomplished athlete and a dedicated father, Bill is survived by his devoted children, Emily, Raoul and Aiden, their mother Charlotte SHEASBY- COLEMAN, his mother Maxine, brothers Ronnie, Kevin and D'arcy and his sister Cathy. Bill's mother-in-law, sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law, his nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles, his rugby and hockey buddies, fellow gym rats, workmates and his many, many Friends share in the untimely loss of this vibrant man whose passing reminds us that life is precious and infinitely fragile. Known for his eclectic taste in books and movies, his off-beat sense of humour and his proficiency in, and dedication to, fitness and sport, Bill was unique and unforgettable in his embrace of life. Most of all, though, he will be remembered for his passion for being a Dad and for the time, energy, love and commitment he gave to his children. They are comforted in knowing that he will be with them always. Visitation will take place on Friday, November 25th from 7: 00-9:00 p.m. at G.H.

The family is most grateful for all the loving support they have received from so many people and ask everyone to remember how important they were to Bill and how much he loved life. We'd be fools not to ride this strange torpedo to the end.
