Six-year-old's courage inspired a community
Saint John's United Church, Creemore was overflowing Monday as the community marked the life of a six-year-old boy.
Michael DESLIPPE succumbed to cancer last Friday at the Credit Valley Hospital in Mississauga after a lengthy battle with the disease.
"Mikey" leaves behind his parents, Sue and Jim DESLIPPE and sisters, Emily and Kathryn.
Rev. Donna HAZLETT conducted the funeral service and told the mourners that the plucky youngster, in his short life, gave the community a gift of closeness and caring for each, other.
"I spoke about faith as a journey in which we can't always see where the curves and hills are going to be. We have to trust that God is walking with us. God is also weeping with us."
"In his short life, he's touched 10 times more people than many of us who have lived 10 times as long as he has," she said Wednesday.
The seriousness of Mikey's illness was well known in the community which came together around the youngster's family. Last year, the windows of Mill Street stores were adorned with Stars for Mikey - paper stars bearing the names of people who kept the youngster in their prayers and helped to support some of the costs of the travel and medical expenses for his family.
Mikey was at home and well enough to trip the switch at Creemore's downtown tree lighting ceremony in December.
He attended kindergarten classes at Nottawasaga Creemore Public School briefly before being stricken by the disease.
Students at the school prepared special tributes and messages of condolence for Mikey's sisters and family Friday and a counsellor from the school board office was made available to students on Monday.
Rev. HAZLETT paid tribute to Mikey's sisters, 11 and 13 years of age.
"The two girls have been very strong through this. They gave Mikey a lot of love."
The family has asked that donations in memory of Mikey go to Creemore charities or the Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario.

In loving memory of August; husband, father, and grandfather, who passed away September 13, 2002.
We often sit and think of him
When we are alone
For memory is the only friend
That grief can call its own.

When other things decay
Our love for him will still be green
And never fade away.

COOPER, Margaret Roseanna (formerly WILSON, SUTTON, née LEWIS)
Unexpectedly but peacefully at her residence surrounded by her family on Thursday, May 19, 2005, Margaret Roseanna COOPER (formerly WILSON, SUTTON, née LEWIS) in her 76th year. Survived and already deeply missed by her children Bob WILSON (Lynda,) Marlene FEWSTER (Al) and Debbie SUTHERLAND (Greg TONKIN.) We were proud to call this beautiful, gentle woman our Mom. She was adored and will be so missed by her grandchildren Joseph WILSON, Michael WILSON, Jessica FEWSTER (Chris PEPPER), Tiffany FEWSTER, Kelly ALMEIDA (John,) Corey SUTHERLAND and Hillary SUTHERLAND (Dan DESMOND.)
Being one of 18 siblings was a point of pride for Margaret (Maggie) because despite the numbers there was always enough love and laughter to go around. Of the 18 children, 14 grew to have families of their own but there always remained a very close connection between each and every one of them. Surviving brothers and sisters include: William LEWIS (Hildred,) Florence ASHFORD (Claude,) Bernice SAMPSON/SAMSON (Charlie), Hector LEWIS (Eileen), Sadie JOYES (Ray), Hazel MacSWEEN, George LEWIS (Susie), Joyce STANDING (Bobby), Daniel LEWIS (Anna) and Shirley MURRAY. "Aunt Marg" was considered a "favorite" to many, many nieces and nephews. Also survived by exhusband and good friend Bob WILSON Sr. of Owen Sound. There is probably a kitchen in heaven right now with a tea pot on the stove and some good Cape Breton fiddle music playing and love, laughter and memories being shared between Marg and her predeceased parents Maude (HINKS) and John Henry LEWIS, brothers Jim and Stan LEWIS and sister Mary BAKER. She was also predeceased by two great men who came into her life and brightened it in their own loving ways, husband Raymond SUTTON, husband Kenneth COOPER. Friends may call at the R.D. Longworth Funeral Home, 845 Devonshire Avenue Woodstock (539-0004) on Sunday 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. where the funeral service will be held in the chapel on Monday at 1: 30 p.m. with Reverend John FURRY officiating.

Tony COSTANZA, Hairdresser: 1928-2005
Immigrant from Italy took up barbering in Ottawa; for decades, he trimmed the locks of the important and not so important
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, February 7, 2005 - Page S6
Ottawa -- For 45 years, ambassadors, prime ministers, viceroys and thousands of less-celebrated men had their hair cut by Tony COSTANZA at the Roma Barber Shop on Elgin Street in Ottawa. Holding court behind his favourite barber chair -- the first on the right when you came in -- he dispensed advice, jokes, opinions and stories to a never-ending stream of customers.
Everyone felt welcome, from working stiffs to the late Ray HNATYSHYN when he was governor-general. Pierre Elliott TRUDEAU dropped by, as well as judges from the nearby provincial courthouse and cadres of lawyers from surrounding office buildings. National Defence Headquarters isn't far away, so he served soldiers, airmen and sailors of all ranks, too.
All his clients received the same, no-fuss treatment. The interior of the tiny shop, which also houses Tony's Smoke Shop, is decorated with postcards, military cap badges and framed photos of favourite clients. The late Conservative politician George Hees is up there, along with former chief of defence General Ramsey Withers, and Paul Robinson, a former U.S. ambassador to Canada.
Retired warrant officer Roger DESPARDE was one of many clients who made Friends with Mr. COSTANZA. "I was in at least once a week. I got to like him and we got along very well. He was like a brother to me, he confided in me."
The shop is an oasis of civility in an uncivil world, a place "where people came by to talk," said David HOMA, a long-time client who recognized Mr. COSTANZA for his acts of kindness. "From time to time, someone would come in for a haircut but couldn't pay. He'd thank them for their business, even though he knew they wouldn't be back to pay. I'm sure that happened a hundred times."
Originally from Sicily, Mr. COSTANZA served in the Italian border police in the late 1940s and then spent five years working in the coal mines of Lancashire, England. In 1955, he immigrated to Canada equipped with little English and just $20. A year later, he sent for his wife, Genoveffa, and son Alex.
Settling in Ottawa, he found work wherever he could. In 1955, he took up barbering. After working for others, Mr. COSTANZA set up on his own in 1960. Nine years later, he moved across the street to the present location and never looked back.
It wasn't easy, though. Six days a week, Mr. COSTANZA opened the shop at 7 a.m. and spent the next 13 hours there. He only took a vacation twice, returning to Italy in 1976 and 1988.
On a good day, he served about 10 clients, or roughly 100,000 haircuts in a career. Now and then, he felt obliged to exert professional influence. "If a guy wanted a particular style and my father thought he didn't have the hair for it, he would tactfully suggest something else," said son Mario COSTANZA. " The guy would usually walk away happy."
The late 1960s and early 1970s weren't kind to Mr. COSTANZA. Long hair was fashionable and most males no longer wanted a "short back and sides" every two weeks. He waited patiently for better days and played a lot of checkers.
However, things changed when son Alex COSTANZA began work at the shop. "I thought it would be a good idea to learn the trade and help my father out. We got along, didn't have any disagreements."
His younger brother Mario had already come to know the shop in the 1960s. He had a job there sweeping floors after school. "It was a thrill to be there and see my father at work and listen to him shooting the breeze with his customers. At the end of the day, he'd throw me a quarter."
In 1978, Mario decided to make it a family threesome. "I liked the relaxed atmosphere [so] I decided to follow in my father's footsteps."
On January 10, Tony COSTANZA cut his last head of hair. He went home early after deciding he did not feel well, and now his chair sits unoccupied and his brushes, scissors, clippers and combs lay untouched.
Gaetano (Tony) COSTANZA was born in Sicily on February 13, 1928. He died in Ottawa on January 13. He was 76. He leaves his wife, Genoveffa, sons Alex and Mario, and his sister, Concetta.

DESROCHERS, Doreen Hogan
With mixed emotions, the family of Doreen Hogan announces her passing on August 4, 2005. The sadness of our loss is tempered by the knowledge her suffering has ended. Her impish smile shone through to brighten many a dark day in her struggle with cancer. Doreen peacefully left home surrounded by all her beloved children. She leaves behind Louise (Benoit and children Gabriel and Vicki), John, Jacques, Marc, and Michel (Angela). All her children share the beauty of her blue eyes, as first observed by her sister Monica at Doreen's birth, as well as her quiet dedication to those around. Born in Emo, Ontario, Doreen was the youngest of twelve. It is no secret she always had a special place in her heart for her dear mother Senja RISTANEN, who came to Canada from Finland. Doreen studied in several places, among them The Pines in Chatham, Ontario. Upon growing up, she moved about, spending some years in Thunder Bay and then Toronto. She finally settled in Montréal, founding her family with Jean DESROCHERS (who predeceased her). Doreen much enjoyed the creativity with which she was blessed. Her artistry found its way to all corners of the family home and beyond, as her children fondly remember. Of the Hogan clan, Doreen leaves behind her brother Art (Verna) and sisters Senja, Monica, Josie, and Pat (Mello), all their children, and many more from her siblings who predeceased her. She also leaves behind Soeur Jeanne d'Arc DESROCHERS, C.S.C., and the families of Lucien and his late sister Aline. Accompanying her physically this last journey were her devoted children, some having taken leave from work. The Palliative Care Unit of St. Mary's Hospital in Montréal provided all forms of support under the guidance of Dr. Josée Caron. Pat Guy improved spirits of all during her many visits to Doreen in hospital. Upon Doreen's return home, Liliane Mondoux contributed early mornings, and more, when most of this late-rising family were asleep. Finally, prayers from far and wide sustained Doreen throughout. As a final gesture of giving, Doreen donated her body to science. A memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, a donation to charity would be welcome, to carry on her gift of generosity. Doreen simply requested Masses be said in her memory.

Methanol mistake leaves man dead
By Jordan PRESS, Tuesday, March 1, 2005 - Page A12
Oshawa -- An Oshawa man who died Sunday of methanol poisoning thought he had been drinking homemade alcohol he had gotten from Friends, his mother said yesterday.
A vodka bottle filled with methanol was passed to Jeff HUSTINS, 24, through a series of Friends, Deborah HUSTINS said in a telephone phone interview.
The friend who gave the bottle to Mr. HUSTINS thought it contained homemade alcohol. It was not clear where the mix-up occurred.
When police recovered the bottle, there was still methanol in it, Ms. HUSTINS said.
"It tasted like alcohol, it smelled like alcohol.... That's what everyone assumed it was."
Methanol -- also known as methyl alcohol -- is clear, colourless and has a slight odour. It is an ingredient in products such as antifreeze, glass cleaner, paints and varnishes. Methyl hydrate, a more potent version of methyl alcohol, is sold in hardware stores.
Mr. HUSTINS drank the methanol for three straight nights, his mother said. On the third night -- Thursday -- he went to a house party where he had no more than one glass of the methanol, she said.
The party was at the apartment of Rich DESROCHES and started after 11 p.m. Mr. HUSTINS, Mr. DESROCHES, 36, and another friend, Dave GOODCHILD, 33, each had the methyl alcohol mixed with orange juice, Mr. DESROCHES said.
"Nobody knew it was methanol," said another man at the party, Kim WRIGHT, 38.
Ms. HUSTINS said she checked on her son Saturday morning and he looked hung over. When she heard that Mr. DESROCHES had similar symptoms, she called an ambulance.
Once at the hospital, Mr. HUSTINS, who had epilepsy, began having seizures. He fell into a coma Saturday night and died Sunday morning.
"I'm hanging in; I'm still in shock, but the full thing hasn't hit me yet," his mother said. "This was my only child."
Mr. DESROCHES and Mr. GOODCHILD also went to hospital but recovered.
Durham Police Sergeant Paul McCURDIN said the death was accidental and police were not planning to lay charges.
Mr. HUSTINS had just moved into an apartment on Normandy Street, near his mother. Yesterday, residents were signing sympathy cards for Ms. HUSTINS.
Mr. HUSTINS's funeral is scheduled for Friday.
