Crash kills village man
Funeral held Tuesday, police continue investigation
By Michael GENNINGS, Page 1
Funeral Services for 20-year-old Christopher DAY of Creemore, killed Friday night when his car struck two horses on Fairgrounds Road, took place yesterday afternoon.
Mourners gathered at Fawcett's Funeral Home on Mill Street in Creemore to pay their respects.
"This is very unfortunate. Words can't say how I feel," Muriel DAY, Christopher's 73-year-old grandmother, told The Sun on Monday. "I've seen so many people die from this town over the years."
The crash which claimed DAY's life took place around 10: 40 p.m. Friday night. Huronia West Ontario Provincial Police Const. Mark KINNEY said that DAY was traveling northbound on Fairgrounds Road, about 1.3 kilometres north of County Rd. 91, when his black 1999 Pontiac four-door struck the two horses.
Someone from a home on Fairgrounds Road, KINNEY noted, called in the crash to 911 operators who dispatched emergency personnel.
"He'd left here to pick up his girlfriend from work at Tim Hortons in Collingwood," DAY said of her grand_son, who for the last couple years lived with his grandparents at their Jardine Crescent home in Creemore.
KINNEY said paramedics transported DAY to Collingwood General & Marine Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Police were at the accident scene until almost 5 a.m. Saturday morning, investigating what transpired.
There was no information available Monday about how the horses got loose, who they belonged to or whether the owners will be charged.
DAY was the only son of Gwen DAY, who lives in Collingwood with her common-law partner Ron GROVES.
DAY's grandmother said he attended elementary school at Nottawasaga-Creemore Public School and later transferred to Admiral Collingwood Public School. He also went to Collingwood Collegiate Institute and Stayner Collegiate Institute.
Lately DAY worked nights at a New Lowell company building house trusses. But, his grandmother said, his real ambition was to become a chef. She said he did work briefly at the kitchens of some local resorts but left to find better paying employment.
DAY talked about attending a cooking program at Toronto's George Brown College some day, she noted. "That was his ambition -- but it's gone now." Another area of interest was computers.
"He was excellent with using a computer. He had a real knack he could make it talk to him," his grandmother said.
Police continue their investigation.
The family said that donations in memory of DAY can be made to any charity.
DAY was cremated and burial took place a Creemore Union Cemetery.

GROVES, Walter -- Dispatch:
By Stefanie BATCHO- LINO, Saturday, August 20, 2005, Page M4
Sometimes gathered around a dinner table with his daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren, Walter "Wally" Alfred GROVES would raise his fists in the air. But not in anger.
"He'd stick fists out on either side. And we'd have to put ours out [to touch his].... Then, we'd do a family power chant," his daughter, Susan WRIGHT, recalls. "It was about being together and being one. Then, we'd all crack up laughing."
The laughter and smiling would not stop there if Mr. GROVES had his lighthearted, yet tenacious way.
When his grandchildren would notice part of a meal that accidentally or not -- made its way to his nose or the side of his mouth, he'd chirp back: "Oh, I'm saving that bit."
For him, life was about not taking himself too seriously and making people smile, whether by waggling his eyebrows, giving raspberry kisses to family members or clicking his heels in the air.
"In bringing happiness to people, he was a king," Ms. WRIGHT said of her father, who emigrated to Canada from England in 1990 at the age of 70 after his beloved wife, Peggy, passed away. He came here to be close to his only child and grandchildren.
"Despite his humour, he was very tenacious and never gave up on anything," she explained, noting how he successfully fought prostate cancer a year after coming here.
Born in London, England, he served in the Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm from 1940 to 1945 and later worked as an executive for the Royal Mail. Later, he moved to Worthing, in Sussex, a seaside town known for lawn bowling, which became his passion.
Although he hadn't played the game for four years, young Lawrence Park lawn-bowling club members turned out for his memorial, as did Friends he made at the Salvation Army's Meighen Manor, where he lived for the past two years.
"He has this huge fan club everywhere he goes," his daughter said. "There are many different gauges of success in life. One of them is how much pleasure an individual can give. I don't think he ever knew how successful he was [at that]."
Before he passed away this month at the age of 85, Mr. GROVES asked the Salvation Army chaplain to pray for him, not to ease his pain from a blood disorder, but to allow him "to continue to make people smile."

Two versions of a murder victim
DARING 'a wonderful, wonderful guy'
Not 'completely upstanding,' police say
By Linda DIEBEL and Isabel TEOTONIO, Staff Reporters, With files from Vanessa LU, Page A1
There are two versions of Delroy George DARING, the father of 10 shot dead in the courtyard of a Scarborough housing complex Thursday night, and one is not so pretty.
The first, from people who knew him, is that he was a good man who pulled a troubled life together to organize "No drugs, No violence" summer barbecues for low-income kids. The group called itself the "out-of-pocket club" because nobody would help them raise money.
There are variations on this version, including the rumour that DARING was a paid police informant in the last months of his life.
Toronto police detectives, while denying the informant story, have a different take on the unemployed furniture mover who emigrated from Kingston, Jamaica, 20 years ago and had convictions for drug possession and trafficking dating back to 1986.
"I have reason to believe that the idea he was, say, a completely upstanding person promoting non-violence, non-drugs and non-guns is not fair," said Det. John BIGGERSTAFF, at the crime scene yesterday. "The activities which brought him to this courtyard are inconsistent with someone promoting (such ideals)."
Added his partner, Det. Greg GROVES: "I have no doubt that this man was the target of this murder."
Whichever version turns out to be true, there is one indisputable fact: he was gunned down in front of 20 to 30 people, many of them children, who later couldn't sleep through the night and are more terrified than ever of living in an increasingly violent part of the city.
"A little girl said to me today, 'Did you see what happened? I did. I saw it,'" said one woman yesterday. "Now that's not right. No child should have that memory."
Residents at 3181 Eglinton, where DARING was shot, didn't want to give their names. People are angry about more than the murder. They say their complaints about their living conditions and violence are ignored.
Yesterday, the building's stairways were littered with burnt newspapers and garbage. They smelled of urine and, in the hallways, light fixtures dangled and carpets were stained with cigarette butts. Locks on the building's doors were broken and mice and roaches scurried about.
Out front, young men milled about the entrance, smoking, listening to music and watching passersby.
"Look, nobody cares until somebody is shot dead, not the police, not the media," said one man, 22. "We never talk to them and it's not about people being scared to talk. It's that when they do, nothing ever happens so why open your mouth."
Before walking away, another man muttered, "Nobody interviewed Delroy when he was trying to do something. Not even the other ghettos cared a f -- -."
These men said DARING was trying to make a difference, especially for the kids. He organized barbecues, which began four years ago and which offered kids a day of bliss with "bouncey-houses" for them to play, along with raffles, soccer and dance contests.
"He was living proof that someone could turn their life around, that somebody could make a change and be a role model," said one man.
A few weeks ago, on August 7, the late-night good mood of a barbecue was shattered when a man was shot in the neck near the Hasty Market across the street. The man survived and nobody has been charged.
Police couldn't confirm reports he was found with 10 bags of marijuana
BIGGERSTAFF said he believes there may have been a connection between DARING's murder and the Hasty Market shooting.
"I'm a believer that things aren't a mere coincidence," he said.
While the autopsy won't be conducted until today, police said that DARING was shot "at least once" in the chest and was pronounced dead an hour later at Sunnybrook hospital.
BIGGERSTAFF said police canvassed the apartment buildings Thursday night after the murder, which occurred around 7 p.m., but were unable to secure eyewitness accounts from anyone in the courtyard.
BIGGERSTAFF said there was concern yesterday at police headquarters, beginning with Chief Bill Blair, about initial reports of the murder describing DARING in glowing terms as a community organizer who was an innocent victim of crime.
"Whether I like it or not, (that version) has gotten some attention," he said, adding that his worry is that Torontonians feel unsafe because they think "a person promoted as a fine, upstanding citizen is killed in broad daylight."
That version, he said, may not be true.
It could be, he explained, that "he was a bad person in a bad position and it had nothing to do with safety in any public area."
Asked if DARING was a drug dealer, the detective said he didn't know.
One young man who worked with DARING to organize the barbecues for children said he was frustrated with the insinuation that DARING was still involved in illegal activities. "They'll say the typical thing, it's what you say in every 'hood: 'He was a drug dealer, he was moving into someone's 'hood.' There's no (hard) drug activity here. If you were a drug dealer selling crack cocaine you'd go broke here."
Rumours are swirling about DARING's murder. Last night Global television reported he was found with 10 dime-sized bags of marijuana, but police couldn't confirm the report.
But at 3181 Eglinton, people didn't want to talk about that. They just wanted to remember the George DARING they knew. For years he lived in their building before moving out about a decade ago.
"He was a wonderful, wonderful guy and he was like a brother to me," said one young man.
In the courtyard where DARING died, a woman looked at the bloodstain on the ground and said: "He didn't represent 'hood life, but he died representing the worst part of it."
He had 10 children with at least three different mothers and apparently looked after all his kids. At the time of his death he lived with his two youngest and his mother in Pickering.
"He was a ladies' man," said one woman. "He liked to take care of business."
Last night, after police removed the yellow tape from the crime scene, two little teddy bears marked the spot where DARING died in the courtyard. And a single bunch of artificial red roses.

ROBINSON, Edna -- I Remember
By Jerry GROWE, Monday, December 12, 2005, Page S11
Jerry GROWE of Vancouver also writes about Edna ROBINSON.
I was a member of her last class at Forest Hill Collegiate in Toronto in 1957 and was one of those smitten male students. She was my homeroom teacher for three years, and each year the feelings became more poignant. There was a slight sense of melancholy about her which we fantasized was due to a lost love. But who would ever ask?
The portrait by Robert BATEMAN that accompanied the obituary was stunning, and was as I remember her then. The sketch was also perfect and, for the record, I think the two aptly positioned admirers were Don JARVIS and George SCROGGIE.
Edna ROBINSON was a truly effective classroom teacher; who else could have engaged us brats in the study of "Der Verschwindendes Miniatur"?
