Stranded by ill health, Australian athlete dies
By Melinda DALTON, Free Press Reporter
The Australian athlete stranded for the last month in a London hospital far from home has died.
Mark SHERIDAN, who had a heart attack shortly after arriving in London, died about 6 p.m. Monday at University Hospital in London.
"(Doctors) thought he'd last a bit longer, but he went peacefully," his mother, June SHERIDAN, said yesterday.
June SHERIDAN made her first trip out of Australia last Thursday to be with her son here.
The mother was by his side when he died.
"Sunday, he had a really good day. When we went in (Monday), he wasn't good at all, but I didn't expect he'd go so quick," she said.
Mark SHERIDAN arrived in London on July 15, one day before his 40th birthday, to defend his gold-medal title in 10-pin bowling at the World Transplant Games.
Before he could compete, the two-time kidney recipient had a heart attack.
He was marooned at University Hospital for more than a month, unable to afford the cost of an air ambulance home -- about $120,000 U.S. -- and not medically fit to take a commercial flight. Neither his insurance company nor government medical coverage in Australia would pay for the flight.
Last week, several Londoners joined SHERIDAN's Friends and family in Australia to help raise the money to fly him home by air ambulance.
Chris and Michele GOULD, who became good Friends with SHERIDAN's Australian teammates while they were in London, organized a raffle through their company, 2000 Tours.
Chris GOULD visited SHERIDAN in hospital Monday to relay stories of his teammates' travels.
"I said, 'Your boys don't play table tennis very well, but they can sure down a pint," he recalled telling SHERIDAN hours before he died in his sleep. "That made him smile."
The cause of death wasn't known last night.
GOULD and his wife have decided to go ahead with the fundraising raffle to help ease the financial burden left on SHERIDAN's family.
"His government and his insurance have just left him here. This is the least that I can do," GOULD said.
The London Rotary Club will likely go ahead with fundraising plans as well, said club secretary Murray WOOD.
SHERIDAN's mother said she's grateful for the help she's received in London, but she's still left with the problem of getting her son back to Australia, which could cost more than $10,000 Cdn.
"This is the last thing we expected so soon," she said. "Now, all I've got to do is get him home."
The local organizing committee of the Transplant Games will offer some financial help to transport SHERIDAN's body, said Nancy LAWRENCE, spokesperson for the games. She wouldn't say how much money the games would offer.
The Australian High Commission in Ottawa said a representative from the consulate met with SHERIDAN's mother yesterday.
"During the whole case, we were in constant contact with Mark and the doctors," said Lin FOWLER, vice-consul at the Australian High Commission.
"We were satisfied that he was receiving the best care. We are now providing counselling (and) looking into options for the trip back."
Fundraising Raffle
- An Ultimate Leafs Package, worth more than $1,100, will be raffled off September 12, with all proceeds going to the SHERIDANs.
- The $20 tickets can be purchased by credit card by calling 474-7706 or 1-888-869-0506, or at 2000 Tours' 299 Springbank Dr. office. See www.2ktours.com for more information and prize details.

3 reservists charged in transient's death
Autopsy of homeless Toronto man reveals injuries consistent with beating
By Jen GERSON, Monday, September 5, 2005, Page A9
Toronto -- Paul CROUTCH, a homeless man who Friends say was harmless and avoided trouble, spent the last night of his life in a sleeping bag in a downtown Toronto park, weathering the wet remnants of hurricane Katrina.
The 59-year-old had spent the past three years sleeping on the streets, or sometimes in shelters. Until recently, Mr. CROUTCH spent a lot of his time on a traffic island two blocks from where he was killed. But, worried about drug dealers, he picked up his meagre possessions and began sleeping in Moss Park, an area frequented by transients and close to the Moss Park Armoury, home to the Queen's Own Rifles of Canada regiment.
He told Friends he felt he would be safer there.
But in the pre-dawn hours last Wednesday, he was beaten to death, allegedly by three part-time members of the Canadian Armed Forces Reserves now charged with second-degree murder.
Shortly before 5 a.m., after receiving two 911 calls, police arrived at Moss Park and found Mr. CROUTCH unconscious in his sleeping bag. He was taken to nearby St. Michael's Hospital, where he died with his case workers from a local hostel at his bedside, said Dion OXFORD, of the Salvation Army's Gateway Shelter.
"He didn't cause trouble, he didn't cause fights, he was harmless," said Mr. OXFORD, who had known Mr. CROUTCH since he started going to the hostel in December of 2002.
Mr. CROUTCH usually slept outdoors but periodically stayed at the shelter, Mr. OXFORD said. The Armoury is often used as a shelter for the homeless, for example during this summer's extreme heat alerts.
Toronto homicide Detective Wayne FOWLER said there was no sign that Mr. CROUCH put up much of a fight when he was attacked.
An autopsy showed that his injuries were consistent with being punched, kicked or stomped upon, police said.
Det. FOWLER credited people in the area with coming forward "with any information they had," which led to the arrests on Friday.
Jeffery HALL, 21, Mountaz IBRAHIM, 23, and Brian DEGANIS, 21, all of Toronto and all members of the Queen's Own Rifles, have been charged with second-degree murder and assault causing bodily harm. The three appeared in court on Saturday and are expected to be back in court later this week.
Captain Mark GILES, spokesman for the National Investigation Service with the Canadian Armed Forces, said that each of the three accused had at least two years experience with the forces, and that all were trained for combat.
"This is a tragic situation, it's a very serious matter," he said in a telephone interview from Ottawa yesterday.
Capt. GILES said that the case is now before the courts, and so he could offer no further details about the accused. Toronto police and the National Investigation Service were involved in the investigation.
Army officials confirmed that a regimental social event took place at Moss Park Armoury last Tuesday night, but could not confirm whether the accused men attended the party.
Police said a woman who tried to intervene on behalf of Mr. CROUTCH suffered bruising. The woman lives in shelters and was prompted by members of the community to contact police, Det. FOWLER said.
"She sought her own medical treatment," he added. "She's sore, but she's going to be okay."
Mr. CROUTCH spent every day at the Good Neighbours' Club, a day centre for homeless senior men located in a nondescript white building near the Moss Park Armoury.
Mr. OXFORD said Mr. CROUTCH was in good physical health, adding that he last saw him at a softball game in Moss Park last Monday.
Bob SEGUIN, a support-care worker with the Good Neighbours' Club, said Mr. CROUTCH was essentially a good man but suffered from paranoia and could sometimes be a bit of a handful.
He had been barred from most of the local shelters and so slept outside most of the year, only sleeping indoors during severe weather. Mr. CROUTCH came by the club to shower, do his laundry and sleep.
"He slept a lot here because he didn't sleep a lot at night," Mr. SEGUIN said.
Mr. SEGUIN said he believed Mr. CROUTCH ran a newspaper in a small town in British Columbia some years ago, but fell on hard times and suffered mental problems.
"He kept to himself," Mr. SEGUIN added. "He had a good sense of humour, a witty, intellectual, dry type of humour."
The Gateway Shelter will hold a memorial service for Mr. CROUTCH next week.

Don SCOTT, Athlete and Chief Executive Officer (1927-2005)
Argonaut player who competed in the famous 'mud bowl' Grey Cup of 1950 went on to head the country's largest accounting firm
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, December 5, 2005 Page, S11
Toronto -- Don SCOTT's athleticism led him to one of the most famous football games in Canadian history, his brains took him atop the leading accounting firm in Canada and his influence made him instrumental when Ontario moved to no-fault automobile insurance in the early 1990s.
He grew up in Windsor, Ontario in the Depression years, when times were tough for him, his father, a Ford Motor Co. employee, and his bookkeeper mother. He attended Patterson Collegiate Institute where he excelled at football, basketball, and track and field. He was the head boy at the school, a two-time member of the all-city, senior basketball team, and he won the Arthur Currie Memorial Scholarship to attend the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, where he played both football and basketball. In 1949, he graduated with a business degree, began studying for his chartered-accounting exam and found himself playing pro that same year for the Toronto Argonauts. He was an offensive end, packing no more than 160 pounds on a 6-foot-1 frame.
"He was very skinny, the lightest man on the field," his daughter Barb said.
"He was a tall, rangy kid, who worked hard and was very modest. He was well-liked as a teammate, said former teammate Nick VOLPE.
"He wasn't really a star but he was a good outside end, a good catch," said ex-teammate Don DURNO. "He wasn't a hefty man. He was probably more of a basketball player with his size."
Buddy FOWLER, another old Argo mate, recalled Mr. SCOTT as a "wonderful guy and great athlete with a great attitude on life."
Mr. SCOTT played three seasons for the Argos, the second of which was his most memorable because they went all the way to the Grey Cup. Mr. SCOTT, Rod SMYLIE, Marv WHALEY and Jack WEBLEY made up Toronto's potent wide-receiver corps as the Argos rolled along that year. As each November week passed, Mr. SCOTT and his fiancée, Eileen, had to keep postponing their wedding. They had picked November 4 as the date but a winning streak put the nuptials on the backburner.
How good was this Toronto team? At the time, Globe and Mail football writer Hal WALKER described the club as "the greatest Argonaut team of all time." Later that year, sports writers picked them as the top football team of the first half century in Canada.
The Frank Clair-coached Argos started off post-season play by disposing of the Hamilton Tiger Cats 35-19 in the two-game, total-points division championship. The Grey Cup game on November 25 at Toronto's Varsity Stadium became known as the "mud bowl." It was a classic game, but not in the offensive sense. At least a foot of snow had hit Toronto the day before, then melted, and the game became a defensive struggle marred by a muddy morass. Mr. VOLPE kicked two field goals to help Toronto beat the Winnipeg Blue Bombers "The field was a sea of water," Mr. VOLPE said. "Bulldozers tried to clear away the water but [they] made it a muddy mess instead. We were literally playing in mud. Bud Tinsley of the Blue Bombers almost drowned. He was face down in the mud and water and he was gasping for breath. He was saved by a referee."
With the big game over, Mr. SCOTT and Eileen finally made firm plans for their wedding. They were married in London on December Mr. SCOTT played one more season for the Argos in 1951 and then decided to retire because his playing time had diminished. "1951 was the year they started bringing in a lot of Americans and didn't use the Canadians as much," his wife said. "After the mud bowl, Don didn't play much."
By that time, Mr. SCOTT had already found a job with Clarkson Gordon. Now part of Ernst Young, it was then Canada's largest accounting firm. He rose to become chairman and chief executive officer, posts he held for eight years.
"Don had a tremendous intellect," said Jim BUNTON, a former associate at Clarkson Gordon. "He kind of glowed. He had a lot of charisma and was very good with staff and people."
Fending off retirement, Mr. SCOTT listened to a number of offers from various groups and companies, finally heeding the call of the provincial government to become head of the Ontario Insurance Commission just when no-fault automobile insurance was coming into play. But in going from the private sector to the tangled red tape of government Mr. SCOTT experienced endless frustrations.
"It was a very trying time," his daughter said. "It was a completely different scenario. In the private sector, he could get something done quickly but, in the public sector, it's not easy. It's a different mindset."
For all that, he left a distinct impression at the Ontario Insurance Commission, said Bernie WEBBER, a former deputy-commissioner under Mr. SCOTT. "He was skilled in athleticism, he was the head of one of Canada's largest accounting firms and he became a top civil servant. We shared a love of language and a mutual disdain for sloppy USAge, particularly by media reporters and announcers whose stock-in-trade is language and who should, by definition, be more precise. You always knew where you stood with him."
Don SCOTT was born July 30, 1927, in Windsor, Ontario He died of cancer on November 3, 2005, in Toronto. He is survived by his wife Eileen and children Christy, Lauren, Barb and Rob.

Jack HURST, 83: Loyal Beach knave
Community fixture at Queen and Beech
Greeted every passerby as 'Sire' or 'Milady'
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Does every community have a Jack HURST? A man who greeted every day with a grin, who greeted every single person he passed on the street with a salutation. A man so entrenched in his community he made newcomers feel as if they too belonged there just by saying hello to them.
And his community? Four blocks or so in the east end of the Beach. A small world, but his world.
For more than 50 years he lived there, first on Silver Birch Ave., in a fourplex that used to be the old Balmy Beach Club with his "dear Mum" as he always called Isabel HURST, who brought up four kids cleaning doctors' homes after her husband deserted the family. After "dear Mum" died in 1980 he moved one block to the west to a place on Willow Ave. For the past 10 years or so -- no one is sure how long -- he lived in a ground floor bachelor with a 12-foot ceiling on Beech Ave., in the building that also houses the Fox movie house.
He had the rolling gait of a sailor navigating a storm, a Tintin tuft of still sandy hair and, in fact, the same small, open face of the French cartoon character, and he died -- at 83 on September 13 -- in the veteran's wing at Sunnybrook hospital, wanting to be back home in the Beach.
He'd been ill and increasingly immobile for a year. It would take him three traffic lights to cross Queen St. E. to the Garden Gate restaurant (known to locals as the Goof) to join the self-styled Goof Support Network, six regulars who met for breakfast Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for years.
"Jack was a really important member of the group because he made each day so bright and funny," said Doug RICHARDSON.
The two would talk about the Crusades, history, Einstein and, always, politics. HURST, a Trudeau-hating Tory, thought things were going to hell in a handbasket, grumbled about young people being on the wrong track and the rich guys moving in and spoiling his Beach -- and then would leave the Goof and stop and chat to these same children and rich guys.
RICHARDSON sometimes helped him cross back over Queen St. "We'd stand in the centre, shielding Jack from the traffic, and force people to stop," he said. "The guy had ulcers on his ankles and he couldn't move. He was in real pain."
But still HURST was out and about most days, carrying his battered soft-sided bag wherever he went. He'd stop off at the Remarkable Bean where George FOWLER would fix him a coffee. "He couldn't sit, his knees were shot," said FOWLER. " He'd stand here by the milk and cream and chat to the morning customers."
Susan FOWLER, George's mother and the owner of the coffee shop, kept an eye out for HURST. She'd greet him most mornings as she walked to work at 6 a.m. "Every day I wake up and am still breathing is a gift," he would say to her.
He was proud, he was certainly stubborn. He rejected all and any aid although there was a particular cab driver, an old school friend it is thought, who used to sit in his car in front of HURST's apartment just in case he needed to run an errand.
And the Queen St. streetcar drivers would wait for him when they saw him slowly, ever so slowly, inching his way to the streetcar stop at the corner. Some of the drivers used to help him into the car -- his knees were so stiff he had to enter and exit the car backwards.
A neighbour made him a railing with a hoop at the end so HURST could pull himself up the few steps to his home. A friend wanted to start a fund to buy him a scooter, but he didn't want one. Others also offered to buy him a motorized wheelchair, which he dismissed, saying he needed the exercise of walking.
He suffered to walk, but he needed to be out in his community, saluting the men with a "Good morrow, Sire," the women as "Milady" with a sweep of the arm and a slight bob, or simply as "Dearie." "I think I see an angel," he would say to the younger women. Always, he would tell them all, he remains their loyal knave and subject.
But for a public figure -- which is what HURST was at Queen St. E. and Beech Ave. where he would sit on the bench outside the corner natural food store, pant legs rolled up, legs out straight, telling everyone he was just getting some sun on the knees -- he was a very private man. "I was never allowed into his apartment," said Jerry SZCZUR, the Fox owner and his landlord. No one was.
He'd always been a packrat and latterly neither he nor his apartment was very clean. A neighbour bringing him some home baking last Easter said his door flew open when she knocked, revealing HURST lying on six or seven dirty mattresses on the floor in a room overflowing with empty pizza boxes and cans.
"He was obviously embarrassed and said he was sick," said Ruth Ellen BRUCE.
HURST had been a housepainter, who had painted BRUCE's home on more than one occasion. Because the Bruce home is high, he called himself Michelangelo and her two daughters "the angels." For years, he showed up at their house every Christmas and Easter with a garbage bag bearing gifts -- shortbread for the adults, dolls and later, books for the girls.
He was Rembrandt when he visited Diana ANDERSON's home those mornings and her husband, a psychiatrist, was "Freud" or " Governor."
"He had a route on Christmas morning," she said. "He'd have the same old jokes year after year. And he always told us how lucky we were to have (son) Jamie."
When he was growing up, HURST was known as Jake, and famous for the parties he gave and for being the fastest man on the rugby team at East York Collegiate. He enlisted in the army and was shipped out to England but never saw action because of his flat feet, a story he used to love to tell on himself. Never married, he trained as a teacher and taught for a couple of years before becoming a housepainter. For 10 years -- between 1965 and 1976 he was the manager at the Fox theatre.
"He was eccentric a touch," said his younger sister Dorothy MacDONALD, who lives outside Sudbury. "He lived his life the way he wanted to and he was a very happy man because he was doing what he wanted to do."
Her family often visited him when he lived with their mother, but when he moved out on his own, he discouraged visits to his home. Anyone picking him up to go to family events had to meet him at the corner.
"He was very independent," said John MacDONALD, Dorothy MacDONALD's son. "He always wanted to be in the Beaches and the family respected that."
When HURST fell ill in February and was hospitalized, the family was there, cleaning his apartment and spending nights and days in the hospital. When HURST wanted out of hospital, he was brought home for a month before his health failed again and he was re-admitted.
"When we were trying to assist Jack in his apartment, there was a constant parade of people going by asking after Jack," said MacDONALD, an architect in Kitchener-Waterloo.
He found out that his uncle had been helping people 20 years younger than he. Unbidden, he'd shovel the snow in front of his apartment building, the Goof and the local solar laundromat. He'd go grocery shopping at the Valu-Mart for a 90-year-old neighbour, even though it would take him, literally, hours to go the three blocks. And people would always offer to help him carry those groceries.
"To be exposed to the level of neighbourhood connect he had and continues to have, well, the Beaches is just a very special place," said MacDONALD. "In the end, we are all Jack's loyal knaves and subjects by virtue of his credos by which we live our lives."

Police have identified the victim of the city's 74th homicide of the year.
Sepehr (Danny) FATULAJHZADEH- RABTI, 25, of Peel Region was shot and killed Thursday outside the car dealership where he worked.
Police say two men entered Genniva Motors on Steeles Ave. W. at Signet Dr. just before 7: 30 p.m. and got into an argument after being told the person they were looking for was not there.
One shot was fired and hit FATULAJHZADEH- RABTI in the chest. He was pronounced dead at Sunnybrook Hospital.
Homicide Det. Wayne FOWLER said several of the man's relatives, including a brother, were at the family-run car dealership when he died.
FOWLER said police were sifting through paperwork and statements from witnesses: in the hopes of narrowing the description of the shooter.
After the shooting, the suspects sped away in what was believed to be a black Pontiac Sunfire with tinted windows.
