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.

I take pen in hand to try and write the feelings of my heart as well as those of my family. We were and still are awestruck at the love and support of family, Friends, acquaintances, co-workers, nurses, doctors, parents of students and especially students who were with us all through this long month. Words cannot adequately express our sincere thanks to each and every person who were there for us. Michael touched many lives with his love of family, service and sports but most of all his love of His Saviour Jesus Christ. We know that Michael is free to run and not be weary and walk and not faint. He will always live on in our hearts. Sincere thanks go to Michael's principal Mr. Peter FERGUSON and the staff at Princess Elizabeth Public School, also Neil at Eastside Marios on Wellington.

SARAZIN taught art of life
By Ian GILLESPIE, Free Press Columnist, Sat, December 3, 2005
The obituary says Barry SARAZIN taught radio broadcasting at Fanshawe College. But with all due respect, I think they got that a bit wrong.
SARAZIN died Tuesday at Parkwood Hospital after a six-year battle with prostate cancer. He left a wife, two children and two grandchildren. He was 58 years old.
SARAZIN's radio career started in Blind River, then bounced him through studios in Sault Ste. Marie, Ottawa, Smiths Falls and Oshawa. He had the requisite "radio voice" -- that perfectly modulated tone that, when it's done well, can flow from a plastic box and into your head like a lover's whisper.
Some radio guys have that -- and sometimes, that's enough. But SARAZIN had something more.
In 1973, he landed at Fanshawe College in the communication arts program. Five years later, he helped launch the college station CIXX-FM -- popularly known as 6X-FM. It was the first time an FM licence had been granted to a Canadian college.
He taught at Fanshawe for 28 years, for a while taking the role of program co-ordinator. Along the way, he handled the weekend morning duties on CFPL-AM 980 -- an aspect that added a real-life edge of experience to his classroom sessions.
Bob COLLINS, co-ordinator of broadcast programs at Fanshawe College, figures SARAZIN taught more than 1,300 students during those years.
After SARAZIN was diagnosed with cancer in 1999, he accepted a reduced workload. Although it sounds as if there was nothing "reduced" about the impact he had.
"I know he was standing in front of the class and suffering," says COLLINS. " But he was still committed to delivering a quality education. You just had to watch the man to see how he set the tone for his life. It was admirable."
Glynis TUCKER was one of SARAZIN's students. Today, TUCKER handles corporate communications for London's city hall. But 17 years ago, she was a cocky college student who got one of SARAZIN's famous "blue letters" -- a typewritten disciplinary note delivered in a blue envelope.
"He was like a captain," she says, adding he often spoke of his love of sailing. "He was the captain of his ship, the captain of the program and the captain of his life."
BOB-FM announcer Skye SYLVAIN, who studied at Fanshawe in the late '80s, remembers SARAZIN as a man with "an elegant demeanour" who taught his students about radio, yes -- but something else, too.
"He was trying to offer us everything he'd experienced and funnel it back to us in a way that would help us navigate whatever perils we'd face," says SYLVAIN.
Deborah O'GRADY works as an announcer at BOB-FM and a human resources representative at a local medical lab. She remembers SARAZIN as a formal, reserved but passionate man who was known to sport an ascot at social events.
"He was very much a father figure to us, and some people rebelled against that," says O'GRADY, who studied with SARAZIN 20 years ago. "But then two or three years out of college, we realized, wait a second -- Barry knew what he was talking about."
O'GRADY recalls the day SARAZIN spent an hour teaching students how to budget their time and money. O'GRADY says "we all sort of groaned" because they didn't think they needed to know that stuff.
But of course, they did.
Brad GIBB is music director at FM-96. He remembers SARAZIN as a "well-mannered, proper guy" who'd remove his eyeglasses, wave them in the air and breathe in through his teeth before he told you what you'd done wrong.
"It sounds really cliched, but he really was an inspiration," says GIBB. "And not just how to be a good worker in the broadcast business, but to be a good person in general."
In an e-mail, longtime Fanshawe co-worker Ray WILMOT recalls the day SARAZIN told him about the cancer that would ultimately take his life.
"There was I, sitting across from him at a picnic table on the grass outside the cafeteria, crying," writes WILMOT. "And there was Barry, reaching over to grip my forearm, comforting me."
Like I said, the obituary stated SARAZIN taught broadcasting. But it sounds as if he taught people a bit more than that.

BELL, Robert Archibald "Archie" Lt. Col, Lake Superior Regiment, Retired.
Died suddenly but peacefully on April 28, 2005 at Wyndham Manor, Oakville, in his 88th year. Much loved father of Lesley (Rod MORRISON) and Alison (Doug CHARLTON.) Born in Port Arthur, Archie was proud of his Scottish heritage and that his people came from the Hebridian island of Colonsay. Archie's war years defined him. He landed at Juno Beach with his regiment in August 1944, was wounded in action, and spent the remainder of the war in military hospitals in England and Canada, returning to Thunder Bay in 1946. Archie joined the family moving business, Angus Bell Cartage, in 1947, retiring in 1968. He then pursued successful real estate and sales careers. He was a devoted volunteer with countless organizations, including the Liberal Party of Canada, the Port Arthur General Hospital and the Lake Superior Regiment Old Boys Association. Archie married Barbara GILLESPIE in 1949. Their marriage was sustained by love and humour, which helped them through the loss of their daughter Nancy at 20 in 1974. Barbara died unexpectedly in 1986. In addition to his daughters, Archie is survived by brother Bruce (Anita), sister Marion (Wally), sister in law, Mona and many nieces and nephews. His sisters Jessie SPOONER (Art) and Dodie STRACHAN (Jack) and brother Ken predeceased him. Archie was fully engaged in life until the day he died. He will be remembered for his wry wit and engaging conversation. There will never be another like him. Lesley and Alison would like to thank the staff of Wyndham Manor for their exceptional and compassionate care of their father. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Northern Cancer Research Foundation, Thunder Bay or Port Arthur Branch 5 Building Fund. Funeral service will be held at St. Paul's United Church, Thunder Bay on Tuesday, May 3rd, 11 a.m. Sargent and son Ltd. 1-866-242-5351.

Marion Dorothy Joan Cleveland GUILD
By Brenda Guild GILLESPIE, Thursday, May 26, 2005, Page A22
Mother of three, grandmother of six. Born April 17, 1930, in Toronto. Died mid-March, of an overdose, in Port Alberni, B.C.
After my mother died, it was amazing to realize how much energy Mom had held in her little form. She'd flown free, as she had dearly hoped when she mustered all her strength and courage to do so.
Marion Dorothy Joan CLEVELAND had a tenuous beginning, conceived the summer before the October crash of 1929. Her university-educated father worked for Bell Telephone in Toronto, the single father of two children by a wife who'd left them but refused a divorce. On a working trip to Saskatchewan, he fell passionately for Mom's Norfolk-raised mother, a talented lady with two children who'd quit her temperamental remittance-man husband.
They set up house in a quality Toronto apartment block. No signs whatever of an unplanned pregnancy showed until her mother was five months along. She appeared early, at home, on April 17, 1930 -- a five-pound wisp of a girl. Three half-siblings each gave her a name. In her first year, she miraculously survived five major childhood illnesses.
Her dad was then fired and blackballed for living in sin. Unable to work in Ontario, he, his enduring love, and five kids drove in a late-model sedan to Alberta. Mom spent several years on the dustbowl prairies driving to the next place to pitch their tent in the summer or to find a shack for the winter. Her dad dug holes for sacks of potatoes and shot jackrabbits for meat.
Still, Mom's mom always insisted they share with those worse off. She wore rags most stylishly, while re-sewing her silks and linens into dresses for her girls.
Mom's dad found communications work in Vancouver early in the Second World War, work which continued in Jasper in 1942. In Miss Doyle's Grade 6 classroom, Gordon GUILD made faces at solemn little Marion to make her laugh. By age 15, they were dating, by 16, lovers. By 18, they were pregnant with my brother and forbidden to marry. By 19, Mom was forced to give him up for adoption.
Mom and Dad fought for the next year to get him back, and with a week to go before this was legally impossible, a smart lawyer and a sympathetic judge awarded them custody. They made national headlines.
They were a family, at last, and I was on the way. Our sister arrived nine years later.
Mom's little body did her great service, although it never worked reliably. With a quick mind unable turn off, especially at night, she obsessed about finding solid good health. She sought solace through medications, all of which failed her, from the first pill or later, when she was addicted. She dealt with her emotional trials most valiantly, winning again and again against profound depression, only to be hit with it anew. While up or down, she said and did things that came out wrong, however well-intended.
A few equally well-intended kin held to tough-love plans of excluding her until she became suitably contrite and trustworthy. She kept reaching out and looking for joy without them, but nothing satisfied.
My mother, little mama, finally gave up trying to get off her pills and onto everyone's good list during a long night in mid-March. She took all her prescription drugs and flew free, to join Dad who left us more than 17 years ago.
They're back together again, those lovers of 40 years, "as if they'd never parted," to quote their favourite poem. Dad's got his Marion back, and those who loved her for all she was and tried to be saw, in her abandoned shell, what spirit and spark she'd packed into her small being.
Brenda is Marion's daughter.

Archie BELL
By Alison BELL and Lesley BELL, Wednesday, October 26, 2005, Page A26
Father, husband, veteran, humorist, letter-writer, political watch-dog, friend. Born November 18, 1917, in Port Arthur, Ontario Died April 28 in Oakville, Ontario, aged 87.
Archie's keen wit, storytelling and personal convictions were his defining features. He would make us laugh until it hurt, or listen in rapt silence to his tales of "the old days." Tales of growing up in Port Arthur, now part of Thunder Bay, Ontario, with his parents Ethel and Angus, his sisters Jessie, Flora and Marion and brothers Bruce and Ken. Tales of skating on the rink beside the co-operative dairy. Tales of the "dirty Thirties," when his mother would generously feed the itinerant labourers who appeared at their back door, sometimes at the expense of her own family.
If we complained about a summer job, Dad would remind us of his hard labour as a water boy on the railway, where he earned the princely sum of $1 a day. If we struggled with school, he would encourage us to stick with it, reminding us that he did not have the good fortune to finish high school, due, in part, to a bout with rheumatic fever, but more to his enlistment in the militia.
A proud member of the Lake Superior Regiment (Motor), Archie joined the militia at the age of 14, masquerading as a much older and wiser 18-year-old. Thrilled with his high-paying job, he described earning $12 a month in 1932 as "a real bonanza."
His life in the army, in many ways, was the making of Archie. Mobilized with a unit of 800 in 1940, he stood guard at the Peace Tower, marched through the Ottawa Valley and eventually landed in New Brunswick, where he was given the rank of officer.
With a drastic shortage of officers in 1942 came the search for suitable candidates. During the interview that led to his promotion, Archie was asked how much high-school education he had. Archie replied, "Three years, Sir." The general nodded in approval. What Archie did not tell him, however, was that all three years were in Grade 9.
Landing at Juno Beach with his regiment in August, 1944, he was wounded in action, spending the remainder of the war in military hospitals in England and Canada. Archie returned to Normandy in 2001 as the official representative of the Lake Superior Regiment, to take part in a ceremony honouring his close friend Major Edward Styffe, who died in the war.
Returning to Port Arthur in 1946, Archie took over his father's moving business. Originally relying on the use of dray horses, Bell Cartage was the only cartage business in the area that was also willing to store explosives. Many a tense moment was spent waiting in the car while Dad stopped to check on things at the magazine where they were kept.
Archie married our mother Barbara GILLESPIE in June, 1949. They met on a blind date and our mother knew at once that she had met the man of her dreams. Three much-loved daughters, Lesley, Nancy and Alison, followed. Despite the obvious gender imbalance in our family, our father liked to pretend that he was the strict authoritarian, but we knew differently. After grounding us for staying out too late with a boyfriend or for dinging his car, Dad would soften the blow with a trip for a chocolate-dipped cone or a Coney Island hot dog.
Our father had a tremendous sense of humour, which sustained him through many difficult periods in his life. A stoic figure, we will never know the depth of pain he felt at the loss of his daughter Nancy and wife Barbara. He was fully engaged in life to the day he died. There will never be another like him.
Alison and Lesley are Archie's daughters.
