Don leaves behind his sons John, Ross, and Thomas, daughters-in-law Suzanne and Sandy, grandchildren Katie, James, Daniel, Alex, Donald, Evelyn, Christina and Sean, his sister Carol, brother-in-law Doug GOWAN and his sister-in-law Violet. Don was pre-deceased by his wife Joan, his brother Ross and his brother-in-law Michael HALICKI. Don was married to Joan Elizabeth GILMOUR in 1957.

In January 1978, Don and the six other original partners incorporated as The Partners' Film Company Limited, Canada's oldest and largest production company.

He also funded and helped create numerous other production, post-production and production service companies all dedicated to creating quality products. Don remained at the helm until the day before his surgery. Don always took great pride in his family. He celebrated his children's, and grandchildren's participation in sports, successes at school and in life. Don's personality and strong will lead to his success in life.

YOUNG, Athena (MANAX)
In loving memory of a Dear Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-grandmother and Sister, Athena (MANAX,) who went to be with her Lord one year ago today, March 8, 2004.
God saw you getting tired
When a cure was not to be
So He closed His arms around you
And whispered "Come to me"
You do not deserve what you went through
And so He gave yourest.
God's garden must be beautiful
For He only takes the best,
In time we saw you sinking
We watched you fade away.
Our hearts were almost broken.
You fought so hard to stay.
But when we saw you sleeping
So peacefully from pain,
We could not wish you back
To suffer that again.
If you had spoken before you died
These are the words you'd have replied
"Weep not for me but courage take
And love one another for my sake."
Sadly missed by Bill, her husband of 60 years, daughters Athena (BILYEA,) Mary-Anne (HALL) and families.

HALL, Louisa Irene (SANDICK)
Of Ingersoll Avenue, in Woodstock, on Wednesday, October 26, 2005 in her 100th year. Irene was born in Ingersoll on March 16, 1906, the eldest child of J. Ernest and Mary (WEIR) SANDICK. She spent her childhood on her parents' dairy farm near Beachville. In her youth Irene was catcher on the well known Dunn's ladies softball team, until she went off to Normal School, London, in 1925. In 1926, she began her teaching career in a small school in Lakehurst, north or Peterborough, and a year later she married John D. HALL of that community. Together they had six children - Douglas (Rhonda) of Montreal, Quebec, Pauline (Bob McLAREN) of Hickson, Delbert (Sheila) of Innisfil, Richard (Janet) of Woodstock, Keith of Woodstock, and Dennis (Thea) of Hadashville, Manitoba. From 1934 to 1952 the family resided in Innerkip, where Irene was active in the United Church and various community events. After John's death in 1953, Irene went back to teaching - serving in several Oxford County schools, among them Centreville, Southside, Beaconsfield, and Hickson. She loved children and could remember almost all of those she taught - long after her retirement in 1971. She kept mentally alert until her life's end, enjoying scrapbooks and puzzles, scrabble and cards - usually beating her care-giver, Keith, quite handily. In addition to her children and their spouses, Irene is survived by twenty grandchildren and their spouses, thirty-three great-grandchildren and spouses. She also has a sister Nell (Mrs. Alex) HART. She is predeceased by brother Gordon SANDICK (Elsie,) and numerous life long Friends and relatives with whom she shared her long and productive life.

Figure skater dominated national competition
By Tom HAWTHORN, Saturday, January 22, 2005 - Page S7
Victoria -- Sandy McKECHNIE, who has died aged 83, won five national figure-skating championships before going off to war.
Mr. McKECHNIE was aged 17 when he claimed the Canadian junior men's title in a 1939 meet at the Toronto Skating Club.
"Displaying even rhythm in his dance steps and executing the difficult double-loop, lutz and salchows with perfect precision, Sandy gave one of the most pleasing performances witnessed on Toronto ice," wrote Bobbie ROSENFELD in the Globe and Mail.
Mr. McKECHNIE also skated on the winning fours team that year with clubmates Gillian WATSON, Ruth HALL and Donald GILCHRIST. In 1941, he won a national dance title in tenstep with Norah McCARTHY. The following year he won two more Canadian titles with Eleanor O'MEARA, claiming the waltz and pairs championships. His ice partner, who died at age 83 five years ago, became a star with the Ice Capades, with whom she was known as a "ballerina of the blades."
The pair joined others in a "South Seas" extravaganza including 500 performers and a 100-piece orchestra at Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto in the winter of 1941. He unlaced his skates to join the Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve, serving as a lieutenant aboard the anti-submarine corvette Algoma.
A sportsman all his life, he was later president of the Toronto Cricket, Skating and Curling Club.
James Alexander McKECHNIE was born at Toronto on August 25, 1921. He moved to Victoria in 1980, where he died at his home on January 9, leaving his wife, Sally; a daughter; and a sister. He was predeceased by a son.

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.

Defeated by his demons, man met violent end on a Moss Park bench
By Anthony REINHART, Wednesday, September 7, 2005, Page A1
Last Tuesday night, Paul CROUTCH laid down his life, or what little was left of it, safe in the belief that he could handle any threats.
He bedded down on his usual bench in Toronto's Moss Park, which, to his mind, was a damn sight safer than the shelters, with their drunken bullies and bedbugs, their tuberculosis, their thieves.
When the former British Columbia resident wound up dead the next day, beaten almost beyond recognition on a rough and desperate patch of the city's downtown, few would have expected police to find $300 in his pocket, right there where he'd put it.
Fewer still would have guessed he had been a newspaper publisher, minor hockey coach, homeowner and the father of a scientist before his demons defeated him.
And no one who was thinking straight would have anticipated where the finger would point: at three part-time reserve soldiers from the armoury next door, three young men trained to lay down their own lives to save others.
As often as death walks the tired streets around the park, "you wouldn't expect people that are charged with our protection to take this kind of action," said Don HARRIS, who runs the Good Neighbours' Club, a men's drop-in centre where Mr. CROUTCH, 59, visited daily.
For all its optimism, the centre's name suggested only irony yesterday, given what police allege to have happened after three members of the Queen's Own Rifles left the Moss Park Armoury and visited the park next door.
There, police say, a woman saw three men beating a homeless man, and they turned on her when she tried to intervene.
There, at 4: 40 a.m., officers found an unconscious Mr. CROUTCH, suffering what the coroner would call "blunt impact head trauma... consistent with being punched, kicked or stomped."
And there, they pursued leads, along with the National Investigation Services of the Canadian Forces, that resulted in Jeffery HALL, 21, Mountaz IBRAHIM, 23, and Brian DEGANIS, 21, being charged with second-degree murder and assault causing bodily harm.
In due course, a court will answer the questions. Yesterday, those closest to Mr. CROUTCH could only wait, wonder and remember.
"Paul wasn't always a crazy homeless person," said Marilyn HOWARD, his former wife of 25 years, from Dawson Creek. "He was incredibly brilliant, and that was probably a lot of his difficulty."
Difficulty quickly followed Mr. CROUTCH's birth, in Toronto, on November 6, 1945. He was placed in a foster home with a family called CROUTCH, but they never adopted him.
At 12, he renamed himself Paul Richard Franklin CROUTCH, taking his first three names from his favourite hockey players.
When the young couple met in 1966, Mr. CROUTCH worked for aircraft maker McDonnell Douglas, and after they married, he started his own fabricating business.
"His mental illness was starting even then," Ms. HOWARD said. "His big problem was, he was always right," and too often saw the rest of the world as wrong.
The couple moved to Vancouver in 1973, then north to Dawson Creek two years later, where Mr. CROUTCH worked as a travelling auto-parts salesman for Ford. Twice a month, even in winter, his work took him deep into the Yukon via the Alaska Highway, a desolate but essential lifeline for northerners.
"He did lots of favours for people on the highway," Ms. HOWARD said, recalling how her husband would pick up a half-dozen lobsters on sale at Safeway, or a side of beef from a farmer, and deliver them to far-flung Friends along his route.
Mr. CROUTCH left the road after their daughter, Shannon, was born in 1977. He joined the Peace River Block News as advertising manager, but when its owners cut salaries, he left. With his wife and some Friends, he started a weekly, The Mirror, in 1980, and focused his coverage exclusively on good news.
The paper prospered, but Mr. CROUTCH's mental illness became ever more evident, both at home and in the paranoid tone of his editorials.
"The worse it got, the less he realized how much help he needed," said Ms. HOWARD.
And he would go on refusing help until the day before his death.
The couple divorced in 1993, and soon after, Mr. CROUTCH sold The Mirror and moved to Grande Prairie, Alberta.
"I got reports of him just sitting in the mall [in Grande Prairie], looking like a zombie," Ms. HOWARD said.
She lost track of him from there, but in the late 1990s, as his daughter was earning her master's degree in plant science, Mr. CROUTCH made his way back to Toronto.
When he walked through the stainless steel doors of the Good Neighbours' Club in 1999, he filled out a form to become a member. In the box marked "next of kin," he wrote "none wished."
From then on, he was a fixture, albeit a quiet one, at the drop-in centre, where he showered, did his laundry and sent faxes to the social agencies that helped him.
"He was really smart, and he really felt he'd been wronged," said Gary McCRIMMON, a worker at the centre, referring to Mr. CROUTCH's phantom fears of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the government, whoever. "I think it consumed him and it was a large part of his downfall."
As evening fell last Tuesday, Mr. CROUTCH turned aside a doctor's concerns with his usual phrase: "I'll be dead in a couple days." He also refused, as usual, to sleep in a homeless shelter.
"I gave him two bottles of water and he set off for the park," Mr. McCRIMMON said.
When a detective called the centre on Wednesday morning, Mr. McCRIMMON answered. When told of Mr. CROUTCH's death, and of the bruising on his face, his first thought was that he had fallen.
"She said, 'Oh, no, no, this is a homicide,' " he said. "When I went and identified the body, I could see what she meant."
Ms. HOWARD, who spent yesterday taking condolences on the sidewalks of Dawson Creek and arranging a Toronto cremation by phone, said she hopes to be in court to see her ex-husband's alleged killers face justice.
"Paul's life was over, in many ways, years ago," she said. "These people who did this have got to atone for what they've done."

'Eco-hero' HUNTER dead at 63
Seminal figure in global environmental movement
Respected author of 13 books had long career in television news
By Joseph HALL, Staff Reporter
The ice was cracking as the sealing boat bore down on Bob HUNTER and the cold green sea was bubbling up around his feet.
"I said, okay, when this ice goes, you jump to the right and I'll jump to the left," his friend and fellow environmental activist Paul WATSON recalls of that David and Goliath confrontation he shared with HUNTER off the Labrador coast back in 1976.
"But Bob said ' I'm not going anywhere.' And the damned boat stopped."
HUNTER, the Greenpeace co-founder who came into countless Toronto living rooms in his housecoat as a quirky commentator on Citytv's Breakfast Television, died yesterday after a long battle with prostate cancer. He was 63.
Described by Friends and colleagues as a congenial, funny, kind and fiercely brave rebel, HUNTER was a seminal figure in the global environmental movement. His Greenpeace work in the 1970s and 1980s helped achieve moratoriums on whaling and the Newfoundland seal hunt (since lifted) and a ban on nuclear testing in the Pacific.
It also ushered in a general global concern for the environment that had been largely absent before he and his "eco-warrior" comrades took the stage.
HUNTER was Citytv's environment reporter for 15 years, and also was also a founding contributor to the Toronto weekly eye and the author of 13 books.
Born in St. Boniface, Manitoba, October 13, 1941, HUNTER became "a child of the '60s" and dropped out of school for a career in writing.
He ended up at The Vancouver Sun, ultimately becoming the country's first counter-culture columnist before sailing aboard the Phyllis Cormack in late 1971 to demonstrate against U.S. nuclear tests on Amchitka Island off the coast of Alaska.
That trip precipitated the formation of the group that would become Greenpeace. He was the organization's original president and chairman and held the first membership card.
In the mid-'70s as the organization's president he didn't hesitate to take on those he deemed irresponsible.
In 1976, he took Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau to task for Canada's continuing export of nuclear technology to developing countries. He called the leader "one of the greatest living threats to the survival of the planet."
But by 1982 he had returned to his first love as a writer for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's The Beachcombers series and as a columnist for The North Shore News in Vancouver
"I was the right person in the right place," said HUNTER of his pivotal role in Greenpeace's dissident activities to halt the slaughter of whales.
"But when it's done, I think you can get into a habit of just clinging to it because you don't know what to do next, whereas I knew all along I wanted to get back to what I was doing already."
WATSON, however, says HUNTER's role in the success of Greenpeace cannot be overstated.
"There are a lot of us who could be called (Greenpeace) co-founders, but I would describe Bob as the founding father," he says.
"He was the one who picked it up when it was faltering in the early 1970s and made it what it is today. If not for Bob HUNTER, there would not be a Greenpeace Foundation today."
"Bob was one of a critical mass of environmental people with a media focus," says long-time friend Dan McDERMOTT, director of the Sierra Club of Canada's Ontario chapter.
"He had the vision to look across cultures and to use the media to move the message."
Confrontational stunts at sea became his Greenpeace trademark even as they literally put HUNTER's life on the line.
Indeed, many say it was the televised image of a harpoon flying over WATSON's head and into a whale he was trying to protect in the mid-'70s that brought environmentalism into the public eye.
Premier Dalton McGUINTY paid tribute to HUNTER, who ran for the Liberals in a 2001 by-election, finishing second to New Democrat Michael PRUE.
"Ontario and Canada have lost a very important citizen. Bob HUNTER was larger than life," McGUINTY said yesterday.
"Some people talk about saving the world. Bob HUNTER devoted his life to saving the world," he said.
In 2000, HUNTER was named one of Time magazine's eco-heroes of the century.
HUNTER died surrounded by his wife, Bobbi and his children Will, Emily, Conan and Justine, according to Citytv.
A memorial service will be announced shortly.

3 reservists face murder charges
Homeless man beaten to death in Moss Park
By Hilda HOY, Staff Reporter
Three members of the Canadian Armed Forces Reserves are facing second-degree murder and assault charges after a homeless man was beaten to death in a downtown park and a woman coming to his aid was attacked.
Paul Richard CROUTCH, 59, died at St. Michael's Hospital on Wednesday as his case manager stood nearby. An autopsy performed Friday found the cause of death was trauma to the head, and the injuries were consistent with being punched, kicked or stomped.
Police were called to an assault in Moss Park, near Sherbourne and Shuter Sts., shortly before 5 a.m. on Wednesday. An unconscious CROUTCH was rushed to hospital but died later that morning.
A woman who witnessed the beating and intervened was treated for soft-tissue damage and bruising, police said.
CROUTCH had been a resident of the Salvation Army's Gateway Shelter, around the corner from the park on Jarvis Street, since 2002. Gateway will host a funeral next week.
He has family on the West Coast who have been notified.
"He was very mild-mannered and soft-spoken," said Gateway director Dion OXFORD. "He was harmless."
Last time he saw CROUTCH, he was watching the Gateway softball team play in the park.
"He kept to himself most of the time," remembered Gateway chaplain Ron FARR.
Brian DEGANIS, 21, Jeffery HALL, 21, and Mountaz IBRAHIM, 23, all of Toronto, were arrested and charged Friday after a joint investigation by Toronto police and the army's National Investigation Services.
The three men are part-time members of the Queen's Own Rifles of Canada, a reserve infantry unit that trains at the Moss Park Armoury adjacent to the park where CROUTCH was found.
Each has received at least two years of combat training, although the exact length of their service could not be confirmed. They had attended a "social function" at the armoury that evening but were not in uniform, investigation services spokesman Capt. Mark GILES said.
"Uniform or no uniform, these are very serious charges and we take it very seriously," said GILES.
Because the incident took place in the park and not on armoury property, the investigation falls under city police jurisdiction. The National Investigation Services provided support and will continue to do so as needed, GILES said.

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."
