KENNEDY, James F.
It is with sadness that his family announces Jim passed away, peacefully, on September 24, in his 88th year. His memory is cherished by Margaret, his wife of 57 years, his devoted daughters and their husbands, Kim KENNEDY and Geoff GODARD of Oakville, Shannon and Dan McNAMARA of Woodstock, his beloved grandchildren, Timothy James, Sean, Emily and Maggy, and the many others he touched during his long and varied life. He is also survived by all but one of his four siblings.
Jim's father was a Klondike gold miner. His mother was a strong woman who moved her large family by car from Vancouver, where he was born May 8, 1918, to Ontario during the depths of the Depression. He grew up to be a brave, successful individual, serving his country with the Royal Canadian Air Force during World War 2, then rising to executive rank in the Ford Motor Company, which he left in 1960 to establish Kennedy Ford, an Oakville icon for many years, until his retirement in 1983.
In 1944, his Lancaster bomber was shot down over France. Parachuting to relative safety, he was taken into the care of the French resistance, and in disguise was spirited through occupied Paris to Spain, finally reaching England in time to rejoin his squadron and fight again.
An entrepreneur by nature, Jim built Kennedy Ford into one of Ford's most successful dealerships. Always civic minded, he was instrumental in establishing the Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts, chairing its founding committee from inception in 1973 until the project was completed in 1978.
He was also a golfer - with two holes in one. As president of the Oakville Golf Club in 1976, he oversaw construction of its current clubhouse. He spent many, many frustrating hours before and after retirement playing that difficult course in summer, and many more at the Lost Tree Club, his retreat in Florida, where he and his numerous Friends diligently honed their games all winter.
J.F.K. was a generous, engaging, warm individual who lived a long, eventful and successful life. The world needs more like him. He will be missed.
A gathering to remember Jim will be held Sunday, October 2 at Kim's home in Oakville, 300 Robinson Street, 4: 00-6:00 p.m.

I Remember -- Frank STALLEY
By Garth GODDARD, Wednesday, March 23, 2005, Page S9
Garth GODDARD of Toronto writes about broadcaster Frank STALLEY, whose obituary ran on March 15.
I knew Frank when we were both at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in Toronto in the late 1950s and early '60s, but did not know that he had trained as a pianist. I did know that he knew a lot about music, though, because he hosted a program of recorded music on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio on Sunday afternoon, and his comments were always knowledgeable. He was very fond of Sergei Rachmaninov and, whenever he played a recording with him at the piano, he would say, reverently, "No one plays Rachmaninov like Rachmaninov."
I also remember being in a television studio one day when Frank wandered in and, finding a piano there, sat down and started to play Beethoven's challenging Piano Sonata No. 21, the Waldstein. I thought he was doing a pretty creditable job of it, but he soon stopped, saying, "And that's where it always ends -- in the middle of page 1, in a welter of notes."

James KENNEDY, Airman, Car Dealer And Arts Patron: (1918-2005)
Shot down over Europe in 1944, he later helped build an arts centre
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Friday, October 14, 2005, Page S9
When it came to luck in bombing runs over Europe, Jim KENNEDY was one of the rare ones. Of every 100 aircrew that flew in heavy bombers, only 24 survived unscathed. Many were killed over Europe, others were badly injured and some ended up as prisoners of war.
James KENNEDY was the one airman in 100 who bailed out and made it back to his base in England. In late May, 1944, about two weeks before the Allied invasion of Normandy, the Lancaster bomber in which Flying Officer KENNEDY was the navigator was shot down while on a bombing mission to Metz in Alsace-Lorraine, French territory annexed by Germany in 1940.
Shot down near Paris, all the crew parachuted to safety, but only Mr. KENNEDY avoided capture. He found himself alone in a wooded area with his escape kit, which included a needle and thread, a razor, soap and a compass.
Jim KENNEDY followed instructions airmen were given: Bury your parachute and contact the local parish priest. He did and was soon in the hands of the French Resistance. Since he didn't speak French, he posed as someone who couldn't speak at all as he travelled across France toward Spain.
"He and the brave young French woman guiding him walked right through the centre of Paris. Challenged by a German, the woman flew into a rage about German bullying, saying her brother was a mute and terrified -- and it worked," said Geoff GODDARD, Mr. KENNEDY's son-in-law.
The progress of an airman evading capture was never a secret. The British had a special group, Military Intelligence 9, set up just to deal with making sure captured airmen made it out. There were several routes, the shortest one from Brittany in northern France to Cornwall in England. Jim KENNEDY took the long route over the mountains to Spain.
Five weeks after being shot down, he crossed the Pyrenees. This was dangerous; the entrances to the mountain passes were guarded by the Germans and the Vichy French. Once in Spain, he contacted the British authorities and was back in England around June 29. That day, his family in Canada received a telegram to say he was safe.
Military intelligence interrogated returning airmen, to find out details of their escape and to stop Germans from infiltrating any spies (which never actually happened.) Mr. KENNEDY was allowed to return to his squadron, though he never flew another mission. Almost all airmen who evaded capture were not allowed back to regular operations in case they were captured and disclosed anything about the escape route.
Jim KENNEDY was born in Vancouver. His father had been a prospector in the Yukon, but later opened a general store in New Westminster, British Columbia When that failed in the Depression, the family moved to Windsor, Ontario After finishing high school in Windsor, Jim worked as a salesman in a local store until he joined the Air Force in 1942.
After the war, Mr. KENNEDY went to work for the Ford Motor Co. of Canada and moved up in the marketing department, relocating to Winnipeg, Montreal and then Toronto. He ended at Ford headquarters in Oakville, Ontario, as director of passenger-car marketing. In 1960, he took over a failing Ford dealership in Oakville and renamed it Kennedy Ford.
The dealership became a success, moving locations as it expanded and prospered. He was the sole owner of, and ran, the dealership until 1983, when he sold the franchise to his sales manager. It is still named Kennedy Ford.
Like a character from a Sinclair Lewis novel, Mr. KENNEDY was involved in all levels of his community, from Oakville and Ontario provincial politics -- where he was a diehard Tory -- to raising money for the local arts centre. He and other business leaders would discuss politics and the future of the city over a few games of cribbage and lunch at the Oakville Club. He was also a member of the local Rotary Club.
One of Mr. KENNEDY's lasting achievements was helping to build the Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts (he served as its founding chairman in 1974). At first, he had wanted to convert Oakville's old Odeon Theatre; when that didn't work, Mr. KENNEDY raised a lot of money, including a large donation from Ford, Oakville's largest employer. The theatre opened in 1977.
"It was designed by Ron THOM, of Shaw Festival fame, and it remains one of the finest smaller theatres of its type," said Ron PLANCHE, a Liberal Party organizer in Oakville at the time. "Without Jim's leadership, the theatre would have ended up as just another two-rink arena."
James F. KENNEDY started his car dealership the same year John F. KENNEDY was elected president of the United States. Mr. KENNEDY always liked to use the initials J.F.K., and that's what many members of his family called him.
After he sold his business, he spent half the year in North Palm Beach, Florida, the other half in Oakville. This meant that he could play golf 12 months a year -- and he did.
James Flood KENNEDY was born in Vancouver on May 8, 1918. He died in Oakville on September 24. He is survived by his wife, Margaret, and his daughters Kim and Shannon.

Homeless man's defiant life honoured
BARTLEMAN met slaying victim
CROUTCH spoke of his mental illness
By John GODDARD, Staff Reporter
Paul CROUTCH attracted more attention at his funeral yesterday than he likely ever did in life, as the victim of a fatal beating that has galvanized the downtown homeless community and moved the Queen's representative in Ontario to sympathy.
Lieutenant Governor James BARTLEMAN and his small entourage mixed with social workers, street people, a few of CROUTCH's former Friends and his ex-wife at a shelter on lower Jarvis St. to pay tribute to CROUTCH as a man, not a statistic.
"I met him two years ago, at about 6 a.m.," BARTLEMAN told about 130 mourners at the yellow-brick chapel of the Salvation Army Gateway shelter, where CROUTCH sometimes stayed. "I was part of a Salvation Army breakfast run and I had on a Salvation Army jacket."
BARTLEMAN recalled getting out of a van and serving coffee and soup to a man sitting on a park bench.
The man, not aware he was speaking to the lieutenant governor, told of owning a newspaper in British Columbia and falling on hard times due to mental illness. BARTLEMAN recognized the same details in newspaper accounts of the beating.
"He was well spoken, obviously well read and very likeable," the lieutenant governor recalled.
CROUTCH, 59, could also be anti-social, paranoid, fatalistic and self-neglectful, Friends and other supporters said of his decline. And in the early hours of August 31, he was beaten to death in his sleeping bag next to the Moss Park Armoury at Queen and Jarvis Sts.
Three reserve soldiers with the Queen's Own Rifles, attached to the armoury, are charged with second-degree murder in the case. They are Brian DEGANIS, 22, Jeffrey HALL, 21, and Mountaz IBRAHIM, 23.
All three had been celebrating with other reservists the night before, after 10 days of war games at Canadian Forces Base Petawawa, northwest of Ottawa.
The anti-poverty group Toronto Disaster Relief Committee has called on Ontario's attorney general to prosecute the killing as a hate crime, saying CROUTCH was targeted as a homeless person.
The group also helped pay for CROUTCH's ex-wife, Marilyn HOWARD, to travel from Dawson Creek, British Columbia, to attend the funeral, and is arranging for her to meet senior Crown attorney Fred BRALEY this week to discuss the hate crime proposal.
At the crowded chapel yesterday, HOWARD spoke of CROUTCH as a spirited family man and entrepreneurial talent. The two met in Toronto in 1966, she said, and later moved to Vancouver and the northern British Columbia town of Dawson Creek.
In 1977, their daughter was born. She did not attend the service, but a recent photograph showing her as a smiling blonde stood on the altar next to a container holding CROUTCH's ashes, and two snapshots of CROUTCH playing with her as a baby.
CROUTCH stopped seeing his daughter when she was 14 as his creeping mental illness turned serious. The couple divorced in 1993. Their daughter recently graduated with an M.A. in plant sciences in the United States, HOWARD said.
"(Over the years), he owned six houses, including a section of farmland, and was a partner in seven businesses," HOWARD said.
At one point, he started his own weekly newspaper in Dawson Creek, the Mirror, which is still publishing. Earlier on, he worked as a travelling auto-parts salesperson for Ford.
"Every second week, he would drive 700 miles of the Alaska Highway," HOWARD said. "He was extremely well known. He'd get calls from all over the North -- 'Hey, I hear Safeway has a sale on lobsters, can you bring some with you?' He would do those things for people."

Canadian composer FREEDMAN dies at 83
By Peter GODDARD, Visual Arts Critic, Page A18
Harry FREEDMAN, one of Canada's most prolific composers with nearly 200 works to his credit, died yesterday from cancer. He was 83.
FREEDMAN's scores included three symphonies and nine ballets.
Tireless and passionate, he leaves behind two new works.
His family immigrated to Medicine Hat, Alberta., from Poland when FREEDMAN, born Henryk FRYDMANN, was 3.
He served four years with the Royal Canadian Air Force in World War 2 and in 1946 was hired as the Toronto Symphony Orchestra's English horn player.
He left in 1970 to compose full-time.
FREEDMAN wed classical soprano Mary MORRISON in 1951 and the pair became Canadian classical music's glamour couple.
He is survived by his wife and three daughters (Lori FREEDMAN is a professional bass clarinet player), five grandchildren and a great-granddaughter.

Father of two latest shooting victim
Killed at Scarborough housing project
It's 'the wild, wild west,' says neighbour
By John GODDARD, Staff Reporter
Residents on the short Scarborough street of Morecambe Gate are all too familiar with the sound of gunfire.
Last Thursday, one man was shot in the arm. Last month, his brother was shot in the back. On August 5, Melbourne WHITTICK, 27, was shot and killed.
And yesterday, about 2: 30 a.m., a man neighbours identified as Hansley McLEAN, a 27-year-old father of two, was shot at close range in the face and chest when he answered his door at the public row-housing complex.
Police have not confirmed his identity.
He was the city's 65th homicide of the year and 45th shooting death. Two men in their early 20s were spotted leaving the scene, police said.
"It's like a graveyard around here now," one woman said at midday yesterday as shocked neighbours congregated. "This is the wild, wild west."
The neighbourhood is a public housing area of about 200 units a couple of blocks north of Finch Ave., bounded by Victoria Park Ave. and to the east Chester Le Blvd.
The entire patch slopes southward and is divided into northern and southern sections by a strip mall -- a division that partly defines the area's problems, some neighbours said.
"The people Up Top are always coming Down Bottom to cause trouble," one said.
"We never go up there. We have no beef with them."
"This is the good side," said another. "Everybody gets along. Everybody participates (in community events, such as summer barbecues). It's a family thing."
All the neighbours willing to speak about the slaying were women. They clustered in groups on the street's east side, while young men stood aloof, offering only "no comment," along a wall opposite bordering Victoria Park Ave.
"I saw him last night after we were trick-or-treating," one woman said of McLEAN. She was with her children, he with his. "We were joking around, then he went inside. I can't believe he's dead."
The women said he had come through a difficult period to become a hard-working, giving and popular community member. He worked in construction and carpet-laying, and was raising a daughter, 11, and son, 6, by different mothers. All lived with his mother at the unit.
Three theories about a motive emerged.
"They wanted to recruit him," said one neighbour, claiming a gang from Up Top, called The Lee, approached McLEAN and he said no. "I heard him arguing with them," she recalled. "'You're shooting each other. Why?'" she remembered him saying. "He's the kind of person who would speak up."
Fear of him speaking up was another possible motive, one said. "They thought he might snitch." Secrecy is the norm on Morecambe Gate, neighbours said, and the main reason why nobody gave their name.
Jealousy was a third. "They're haters," one woman said of the gang members. "They see you're strong. They see you're getting your life together. They see you're getting along with everybody and they're jealous."

Police name slain teen
Fatally shot on busy sidewalk
Police still looking into 66th homicide
By John GODDARD, Staff Reporter
A teenager gunned down in broad daylight on a busy strip of Eglinton Ave. W. was identified yesterday as Jamal Michael HEMMINGS.
He was 17, unemployed, the father of a 2-month-old son and "known to police," Det. Sgt. Mario DI TOMMASO told reporters without giving specifics. He gave the dead teen's address only as "somewhere in downtown Toronto."
Police are still piecing together what happened but said HEMMINGS was shot once just before 4 p.m. Wednesday in or near a parking lot on the south side of Eglinton Ave., just west of Oakwood Ave.
He fled east on foot, DI TOMMASO said, but collapsed a couple of blocks away at Marlee Ave., a short block north of Eglinton at Livingston Rd. Police called to the scene found HEMMINGS unconscious. He was pronounced dead in hospital.
HEMMINGS is the city's 46th shooting death this year and 66th homicide.
"He was with a friend," the detective said of the victim.
"We've spoken to the friend and are trying to corroborate his story."
What that story was, police wouldn't say -- only that investigators are trying to trace HEMMINGS's movements of Tuesday and Wednesday. Police would not speculate on a motive in the killing.
An old red or burgundy four-door vehicle, possibly a Pontiac, was seen speeding eastbound from the parking lot after the shooting and running a red light, DI TOMMASO also said.
