GRINDLEY o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2005-07-05 published
ANDERSON, William Lindsay " Bill"
Born April 24, 1924 in Edmonton, Alberta, passed away unexpectedly on June 24, 2005. A youthful 81 year old, Bill will be greatly missed by his wife Ilse, sisters Mary-Joan (Al COVEY) and Lindsay (Bob GRINDLEY,) three children Lyn, Rob, and Lara, step-children David and Janet, sons-in-law Mike, Rob and Dan, and daughters-in-law Cher, Trena and Meg. He also leaves behind 8 grandchildren, Erin, Laurel, Tillie, Alex, Jordan, Alana, Eliza, and Pia. Bill grew up in Edmonton, attending High School and then the University of Alberta, receiving a Master's degree in Chemical Engineering and later an M.B.A. from the University of Michigan. He worked for Imperial Oil in Sarnia, Ontario before returning to Edmonton to run his father's lumber business, Anderson Lumber Company (reformed Canadian Conifer Ltd.) at the age of 28. In 1965 Bill joined the multinational Reichhold Chemical Inc and moved his family to West Vancouver where they lived for the next 20 years. In the early 1980s, Bill left Reichhold to return to the resource sector with Alberta Energy Corporation where he was Director of Corporate Development (Acquisitions and Mergers). Bill then pursued the field of business consolidations and consulting work with a number of important companies, including Cornat Industries, Bennett Pollution Control (now Bennett Environmental) and Versatile Corporation. By the late 1980s and wanting greater professional independence, Bill formed his own corporate business brokerage which was active in the challenging area of mergers and acquisitions. This eventually led to the creation of AMAC Consultants Inc, where he and partner John McARTHUR became the industry leaders in insurance company acquisitions and consolidations. By the time of his retirement in 2002, Bill ANDERSON was acknowledged universally as the expert in his field. Beyond this impressive professional record, Bill ANDERSON was devoted to his community through public service. While in Edmonton, he was an active member of the Rotary Club, Chairman of the Edmonton Parks and Recreation Board, City Alderman, and a director of the Edmonton Eskimos Football Club. While in Vancouver, Bill continued his community ser vice with the Rotary Club and served as a director of Metro Transit during the construction of the Skytrain system. Bill was an important figure in the early history of the Whistler Mountain resort. He built a vacation home there in 1966, at a time when the community was small, intimate and diverse; Bill was one of a handful of community leaders at Whistler who helped create the needed institutions in the area, especially the Whistler Skiers' Chapel where he served as Chairman. Bill loved life and lived his life to the fullest. He was a keen sportsman, an enthusiast supporter of the Canadian Football League, especially his beloved Eskimos and an avid skier. Bill skied every run in Western Canada and the United States, and his final time on skis occurred in the company of his grandchildren just before his 80th birthday. Bill also loved to travel. He and Ilse made trips to Europe, too many to count, and were yearly winter migrants to Mexico. Bill was devoted to family and will be missed by the growing legacy he leaves behind. Service to be held at Saint John's Anglican Church, 1490 Nanton Street (27th and Granville), 8 July 2 p.m. Reception follows at Shaughnessy Restaurant (Van Deusen Gardens), 5251 Oak Street, Vancouver, 3-5 p.m.

Homicide No. 13
By Kelly PEDRO, Free Press Crime Reporter
A Toronto-area man faces a second-degree murder charge after one man was shot to death and another injured in a pub parking lot early yesterday.
Dwayne PITTER, 23, of Vaughan, was charged yesterday with second-degree murder and attempted murder in connection with London's record 13th homicide.
PITTER is to appear in a London court today.
Joshua Kenneth WILLIAMS, 22, of the London area, was shot in the torso outside the Roxbury Pub and Grill at 1165 Oxford St. E. at 2: 20 a.m.
He died later.
Three people, including PITTER, were taken into custody. The other two were released, police said last night.
Detectives scoured the lot yesterday as they wrestled with a skyrocketing number of homicides this year.
Neighbours said they saw a crowd leave the bar about 2: 30 a.m., then heard screaming.
"I heard the gunshots and I saw someone go down. I thought it was firecrackers," said a woman who was standing outside the Roxbury near a variety store at the time. She did want to give her name.
"I heard two shots and I ran into the (variety) store."
Police said a dispute outside the bar led to the shooting.
Police and paramedics arrived to find WILLIAMS seriously hurt and another man shot in the arm. The second man was treated and released from hospital.
Police have recovered a handgun and are not looking for any more weapons, said Det. Andrew WHITFORD.
It's unclear whether WILLIAMS, the injured man and the three people in custody had just left the Roxbury when the shooting happened, WHITFORD said.
But there were about 40 people in the parking lot when a disagreement broke out, he said. Police are still probing the cause of the dispute.
WHITFORD said many witnesses: have come forward and bar staff have co-operated.
Roxbury staff declined comment yesterday.
Neighbours have complained of fights and loud noise after the bar's closing time.
"It's scary," said Brenda PARSONS, who lives in a nearby townhouse complex. "You don't need television to live in this neighbourhood. There's enough entertainment outside."
PARSONS said she thinks police should patrol the area more regularly on Friday and Saturday nights.
The parking lot is the same one in which Ryan VLAAD, 26, died after being punched in the head during an early morning brawl in July 2002.
Ward 3 Coun. Bernie MacDONALD said he's fielded complaints from neighbours who have had beer bottles thrown at their houses and on their property after 2 a.m. and have heard fights breaking out.
"This has been an ongoing thing with the residents," he said.
The concerns were passed on to police and MacDONALD thought the problems had been quelled until he heard about yesterday's shooting.
But MacDONALD said he thinks drugs are the "root evil" behind violence and shootings in the city this year.
"Until we cut the flow of drugs, we're going to see this and it's going to continue to rise," he said.
Police said they don't know whether drugs were involved in the fatal shooting.
Officers blocked off a large section of the strip mall, which also houses a Sport Mart, Goodwill, variety store, karate school and Tim Hortons.
A green Jeep and a black car also were taped off, though police wouldn't say why.
A shell casing and knife were visible at the scene.
A green camouflage hat, grey T-shirt, plastic beer cups, a cigarette pack and a lighter were strewn near what appeared to be a bloody stain near the black car.
Forensic detectives picked through the evidence and used a fire department aerial truck to photograph and videotape the lot.
An autopsy will be conducted today to determine the cause of death.
