Men drowned during work break
The two young men had been doing construction work at a beachfront home.
By Patrick MALONEY, and Sharon HO, Free Press Reporters
Rondeau -- A day after two men drowned in Lake Erie's choppy waters, reminders of the failed rescue attempts still were scattered along the shoreline yesterday.
Packaging for resuscitators and defibrillator patches were among medical debris left in the sand where rescuers tried Thursday evening to save two Chatham-Kent men, both weak swimmers, who spent 30 minutes lost in the lake near Rondeau Provincial Park.
The double drowning raised the London region's death toll from water mishaps to seven since the start of June.
After working all day on a beachfront home, construction workers John MARTENS, 26, of Chatham, and Jacob KLASSEN, 23, of nearby Louisville -- related by marriage -- entered the lake.
Rescue crews were called soon after, but the two were pronounced dead at a Chatham hospital.
A third construction worker escaped to call for help.
Despite the double drowning, area residents said water conditions Thursday appeared anything but deadly.
"(MARTENS and KLASSEN) were down in what I consider the shallow area," said Tom TOWNSEND, who witnessed much of the rescue attempt.
"(It) was a nice day -- there was an undertow, but not what I consider dangerous," TOWNSEND added.
He said he was impressed with the rescue efforts, which included police officers, firefighters and two search boats.
The water around Rondeau Provincial Park is generally calm, said area business owner Lori O'SHAY/SHEA.
"You just don't think about it," she said.
"I was totally shocked. When something like this happens, you certainly do think of (the potential dangers)."
The owner of The Stone Men, a Ridgetown construction company that employed KLASSEN and MARTENS, declined comment.
Though the number of drownings in the region this season seems high, one expert said seven deaths in one month isn't uncommon.
"Drownings peak in the summer and cluster around weekends -- especially long weekends," said Ed BEAN of the Livesaving Society of Canada.
Other Area Water Deaths
- July 5: Patrick Darrell GRAY/GREY, 34, dies after a diving injury in Trout Lake in Innerkip.
- July 3: Adam MUSIALKAEWACZ, 15, of Hamilton, drowns near Cape Croker.
- July 2: Tyler REID, 6, from Bluewater, drowns at Rotary Beach in Goderich.
- June 25: James DRABICK, 22, of Caledonia, drowns in Trout Lake.
- June 4: John WATSON, 43, of Parkhill, dies after his canoe capsizes at Parkhill Conservation Area.

Motorcyclist dies after crash
By Sharon HO, Free Press Reporter
A 19-year-old Perth County man is dead after crashing in what police termed a motorcycle race.
But another teenager involved in the Thursday night crash denied the two were racing.
Eric WOUTERS was at a house party with 18-year-old Chris OTTEN, both from St. Paul, when they decided to race on a country road, Perth County Ontario Provincial Police said yesterday.
The road, Line 26, is about 10 kilometres southwest of Stratford.
"They were travelling well in excess of the speed limit (80 kilometres an hour,)" Const. Glen CHILDERLEY said.
OTTEN said he didn't know WOUTERS well and they were joking around when they decided to go for a ride. They rode for slightly less than a kilometre before the crash, he said.
"He was ahead of me when he got into a speed wobble -- the front end of his motorcycle started shaking.
"Then he lost control. He went down in front of me. I hit the brakes hard and flew over the handlebars."
A resident called the Ontario Provincial Police, who arrived at 11 p.m. to find the men lying in a corn field.
Both were taken to Stratford General Hospital where WOUTERS died.
OTTEN was released after being treated for a broken wrist and burns on his knees, arm and back. He also received stitches on a foot and elbow.
OTTEN said he was driving his boss's motorcycle and had only driven a motorcycle three or four times before.
Police said OTTEN has a motorcycle licence. It was not immediately clear whether WOUTERS had one.
An autopsy was to be performed on WOUTERS yesterday.

Forest nurse had grit, courage
By Sharon HO, Free Press Reporter
As a young woman during the Depression, Anne TAILOR/TAYLOR did something most Ontario women her age didn't: She left the family farm to work.
"It was unusual for a woman to leave the farm," her son, John TAILOR/TAYLOR, said. "In the 1930s it was tough on a farm."
When she struck out on her own at a time when women's mobility was limited, it was not the last time the nurse from a farm near Forest, in Lambton County, would show her independence and determination.
After graduating from nursing at Sarnia General Hospital in 1933, TAILOR/TAYLOR went to work in Detroit as a nurse. She signed up to work as an American military nurse in the Second World War in the early 1940s and stayed through until late 1945.
"They started from West Virginia and went to Africa, Italy, southern France and wound up in Rhineland (Germany) at the end of the war," said her son, who lives in Toronto.
TAILOR/TAYLOR died July 10 at 93.
TAILOR/TAYLOR didn't tell her son about her wartime experiences until she was in her nineties. One story he remembers was about the American forces stumbling upon the Dachau concentration camp.
"At the end of the war they (the soldiers) were in Germany and went into what they thought was a PoW camp, but it was a death camp," he said.
The army stayed to help the concentration camp's survivors.
"She said it was extremely horrible and she couldn't believe people were reduced to what they were -- starved and horrified," John TAILOR/TAYLOR said of his mother.
In 1948, she married James Currie TAILOR/TAYLOR, who had grown up near her family's farm. The two had kept in touch during the war.
Currie, as he was called, was working in a mining camp in the Northwest Territories at the time. TAILOR/TAYLOR showed her independent streak again when she drove there after their marriage to become a nurse at the camp.
TAILOR/TAYLOR bought a car and drove through the U.S. and Canada at a time when modern highways didn't exist.
"The car would fall off the badly rutted roads at times," John TAILOR/TAYLOR said. "She married Dad, drove up there and told him he'd have to get a real job and move to the city," he said.
The couple later moved to Toronto. They retired to Hometown, Ontario, near Wasaga Beach, where they were founding members of the retirement community.

BLADEK gave from heart
By Sharon HO, Free Press Reporter
Antonette BLADEK was a woman who never stopped giving.
"She was an extraordinary, generous, kind woman," said her daughter, Louise Ann BLADEK of London.
BLADEK, who moved to London nearly 70 years ago, died June 16 from cancer at the age of 92.
Tena, as she was called, learned about the importance of giving to others from her parents.
"Mother saw it as her prime objective, by example of her parents, that others in the world needed to be loved and comforted," Louise Ann said.
BLADEK's lessons about caring for others was learned as a child, when her family "adopted" a man from their church, who moved in with the family.
Her generosity kept her busy during the Second World War when she knitted socks and mittens for Canadian soldiers.
In the late 1940s, Tena and her husband, John, took former Polish soldiers into their home as the men moved to Canada to start a new life after the war. It really helped that Tena was fluent in Polish.
"I do remember as a little kid waking up and finding people sleeping in our house," Louise Ann said. "Our house was known as the place where anyone could get food."
A spiritual woman, BLADEK was a founding member of Our Lady of Czestochowa Church in London.
"We needed her because she was bilingual and she was a woman of faith," said Reverend Peter SANCZENKO, a former priest at the church.
BLADEK helped raise money for the church before it was built. On one occasion, she and her brother-in-law, John DAWIDOWSKI, knocked on an apartment door asking for money, Louise Ann said.
It was a one-bedroom apartment and the family was using blankets to divide the apartment into compartments.
But when BLADEK and DAWIDOWSKI said they were collecting money for a Polish church," Louise Ann said, the family "donated 100 $1 bills.... She said that was the greatest gift she had gotten that day."
The church also remembered BLADEK for her generosity.
"She was always willing to help when you called her," SANCZENKO said. "She always found time for others. She shared her time and gifts (pleasantness, cheerfulness and helpfulness) with others."

Lifelong learning a passion for KERR
By Sharon HO, Free Press Reporter
Throughout his life, Lloyd KERR believed in self-education and doing things himself.
"He wasn't afraid to learn anything," said his daughter, Bonnie BURRELL, of Dorchester. "He was never afraid to get a book, dive in and learn it himself."
KERR died on July 27 from cancer at the age of 75.
A testament to KERR's ability to teach himself is a ranch-style house he built on Commissioners Road west of Wharncliffe Road around 1958.
"He also did his own plumbing and electrical work in the house," BURRELL said.
KERR moved his family from London to outside of Dorchester in 1969 over fears Commissioners would be turned into a highway.
He then bought a hobby farm in Dorchester where he renovated its farm house.
Professionally, KERR was a longtime employee of Wolverine Tube, a copper tubing manufacturer.
KERR started working at the company in 1945 at age 15. Despite having only a Grade 11 education, he worked his way up to become president and chief executive in 1976. KERR retired from the company in 1993.
"When he moved up the ranks he continued to learn," BURRELL said.
"He was tremendously dedicated to Wolverine Tube. His job was his passion. As a child growing up, Wolverine Tube was constantly in our vocabulary."
KERR made it a point to meet all new employees at the company. Not only did he meet them, but he knew everyone's name.
"He was a down-to-earth person and he could talk to any person," said Ed ERVASTI, president of Wolverine Tube prior to KERR.
"There was no aloofness to him at all. All 300 people he knew intimately. He was out on the plant floor, so he talked to everybody."
Sports were another passion in KERR's life. He was an avid golfer and bought a house on a golf course in Florida after he retired.
KERR also enjoyed watching baseball and hockey.
KERR coached the Wolverine Tube hockey team in the Industrial Hockey League. He also sponsored the Lloyd's Boys slo-pitch and hockey teams as well as minor sports teams in Dorchester his grandchildren played on.
KERR is survived by his children Bonnie BURRELL, Randy KERR, Chris RANK, Bill KERR and Janice KERR who all live in Dorchester. KERR's wife Joan died in 1995.

Watch, don't run, riders told
Toronto Transit Commission, police launch safety drive for motorists, pedestrians
Woman, 27, struck and killed by car while running for a bus
By Sikander Z. HASHMI and Hilda HOY, Staff Reporters
Take the time to check.
Tragically, that message -- part of a safety drive by Toronto police and the Toronto Transit Commission this week -- came too late for a young woman struck and killed in Scarborough just hours before the launch of the campaign.
Bonnie HO, 26, was rushing to catch her bus just before 7 a.m. yesterday. She reportedly ran against a red light from the southeast corner of Steeles and Kelvin Grove Aves., near her home, and was hit by a taxi.
Suffering massive head injuries, HO was rushed to Sunnybrook hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
In a one-week campaign aimed at preventing such accidents, officers are paying particular attention to infractions by motorists, cyclists and pedestrians that impede transit, especially around bus and streetcar stops, high-occupancy vehicle lanes and Wheel Trans vehicles.
Toronto police Sgt. Tony LAWSON advises pedestrians to stay alert and be cautious when stepping on to roads.
"Most fatalities involving pedestrians occur on the roadway, not on sidewalks," he points out. "It's usually the pedestrian rushing to something."
Most of the time, streetcar commuters have to step on to the roadway when hopping on or off the Toronto Transit Commission. One person a month is struck while leaving a streetcar, according to Const. Barb RYAN of the traffic safety program. But it's a wonder the rate is that low, considering how many motorists don't bother to stop behind open streetcar doors as the law requires.
"Toronto Transit Commission operators, themselves, report up to 80 incidents a day where motor vehicles pass the open doors of a streetcar, I guess in an attempt to race by," RYAN says. "Those could all end up in injuries or a calamity of some description."
That's the reason the campaign is emphasizing streetcar safety, she says, "because of the fact that they're not curbside."
At least one streetcar rider thinks that should be changed.
"It'd be nice to have (the streetcars) on the other side of the street," says Vanessa LEE, 26.
witnessing one rider being hit by a car was enough to persuade Umar TURNER to make a habit to check not once, but twice, when getting off a streetcar.
"I was right behind this lady," recalls the 26-year-old, "and she stepped off. I guess she didn't really look and a car came by and hit her.
"Because of that, every time I get off the streetcar, I always make sure to double-check."
TURNER says he often sees the streetcar stop and cars speed by.
Lee ZASLOFSKY, 60, has also witnessed cars whizzing by open streetcar doors but hasn't seen anyone get hit. He welcomes the awareness campaign, saying drivers need a reminder to be careful.
"I'm glad the police are doing this," he said while waiting for a streetcar at the corner of Yonge and Queen Sts.
"The people getting off are completely innocent. They may be a little careless, but the penalty could be death, whereas the guy in the car has a lifetime of guilt."
RYAN urges commuters to just take a moment to make sure they're not stepping directly into the path of an oncoming car. "Take that extra second... to check before you're going to jump into a live lane of traffic."
She has a piece of advice for drivers as well: "If you're a motorist... give them an extra second, because lots of times, people change their minds. They're on, then they want to get off, and the Toronto Transit Commission vehicle may have to come to a sudden stop."
Lisa TAILOR/TAYLOR, who was waiting for the Queen streetcar yesterday, recently saw a man nearly hit by a car as he was leaving the streetcar.
"The drivers here in Toronto... are very erratic," says TAILOR/TAYLOR, 33. "They don't look where they're going."
If the risk to innocent pedestrians isn't enough to convince motorists to be more careful, the penalty for being careless should. Passing an open streetcar door can set you back at least $110, plus three demerit points.

The family is grateful for the support of members of the Rashid family of Kingston, Ontario and Etobicoke, Ontario. John was a good friend to many, a mentor, a raconteur and a bon vivant with a love for anything relating to France. He was an outstanding father, husband, son, brother and uncle. John grew up and attended schools in Preston (now Cambridge), Ontario. He graduated from the University of Toronto and worked for architectural firms in London, England and Boston, Massachusetts before joining the firm of Skidmore, Owing and Merrill of New York City. He worked for nearly a decade as their Resident Architect located in Owensboro, Kentucky; Greenville, South Carolina; and Des Moines, Iowa.

He worked for Marani Rounthwaite & Dick in Toronto prior to joining the University of Waterloo (Ontario) in 1967. He was at Waterloo for 25 years, until his retirement as the Architectural Program Administrator for the Co-operative Education. He found great delight in challenging and mentoring the architectural students in the practical side of architecture, encouraging them to take co-op positions in locales far from home, such as Scandinavia, England, Europe, the Caribbean, and with some of the most successful firms in the United States. He advised the Nova Scotia Institute of Technology and Texas A&M University on the establishment and development of cooperative educational programs.

He was a member of the Commonwealth Association of Architects Educational Panel. His many years of leadership and service brought him two awards of which he was very proud. In 1984 he was made a Fellow of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada, the highest honour a Canadian Architect can receive. In 1987 he was the 3rd recipient of the Order of da Vinci awarded to those who have made 'significant contributions' to the profession in Ontario. He served as a member of the Board of Managers of Rosedale Presbyterian Church (Toronto), a church he had attended since university. While in New York, John had enjoyed being a member of the Mendelsohn Men's Chorus and thus was thrilled when Rosedale invited him to join the choir for a performance of Handel's 'Messiah'. John had been Chairman for 19 years of the Committee on Church Architecture for the Presbyterian Church in Canada, which won a Premier's Award for Accessibility (1986) for their handbook of standards and accessibility guidelines for church architecture.

Vanier worker everyone's Grandma
By April KEMICK, Free Press Reporter
Florence (Peggy) HOARE dedicated her life to helping children.
After staying home to raise her son and daughter into their teen years, HOARE became one of Madame Vanier Children's Services most celebrated staff members for her ability to help troubled kids.
"When you talk about unconditional caring and concern, that was Peggy," said former Vanier co-worker Nancy MILLER.
"She created a real feeling of nurturing and safety and a lot of the kids looked to her as a grandma," she said.
HOARE died July 5 at 76 from heart problems, leaving behind a legacy of support for London's needy children.
Her distinguished career began in the early 1970s, when HOARE went back to school for Fanshawe College's child and youth worker program at age 42.
The Toronto native, who met and married her best friend, Don, in 1951, had two grown children, Stephen and Cathy, and longed to work with youngsters.
"She was bored and really loved children," daughter Cathy ADAM/ADAMS said. "She really should have had 10 kids."
HOARE completed the program in 1973 without having missed a single class and was hired at Vanier, where she pioneered a home treatment program.
The dedicated employee brought troubled kids into her home until they were adopted, MILLER said.
"She was so good to them," her daughter said. "Everybody was treated like family."
HOARE, a senior staff member who was looked up to by younger employees for her "quiet, calming influence," later became a child and youth counsellor, a position she held for 19 years.
During her time at Vanier, HOARE also led art therapy sessions and was known to bring in homemade treats for staff and children.
The grandmother-like figure made a lasting impression on the kids she worked with, some of whom remembered her decades after their experiences at Vanier.
"She only retired because she had to," MILLER said of HOARE's retirement at age 65 in 1994.
Even after she left the agency, HOARE, an avid knitter, continued to visit, often bringing in knitted mittens and socks for needy kids.
"Even after she left, she was still here," MILLER said. "We considered her an honorary lifetime volunteer."

RUTHERFORD lifelong navy man
Donald Cameron RUTHERFORD had a full navy career and was a active advocate for it.
By Jonathan SHER, Free Press Reporter
Commander Donald Cameron RUTHERFORD would have been proud last week to see the Canadian Navy he tirelessly promoted send three ships to aid victims of hurricane Katrina.
Born in Sarnia in 1922, the longtime London resident held a litany of important naval posts in his 29-year career and then, in retirement, continued as a leading voice supporting the navy into his 80s.
RUTHERFORD, who died in October, enrolled in the Royal Canadian Navy in 1940 at age 18 and served during the Second World War aboard the British warships H.M.S. Hood, London, Duke of York and Woolston.
In 1943, he returned to Canada and served on the H.M.C.S. Ottawa and Prince Robert. After the war, RUTHERFORD held important positions at sea and ashore, including:
- Commanding officer of the H.M.C.S. St. Croix and the Haida, the latter now a national monument docked in Hamilton.
- Canadian joint staff, Washington, D.C.
- Royal Naval Staff College, Greenwich, England.
- Director of Naval Communications.
- Director of Naval Operational Requirements for Communications, Command and Control and Electronic Warfare Systems.
RUTHERFORD retired from the navy in 1968 but his work and service continued.
For the next 18 years, he was a manager at 3M Canada in London, all the while promoting the navy.
He served as a president of the Royal Canadian Naval Association and as national director of the Naval Officers Association of Canada. In those capacities, he mobilized those unhappy with inadequate naval funding, speaking forcefully at gatherings and leading e-mail campaigns.
"He didn't pull any punches and he did more than complain," said Michael HOARE, a former commanding officer of the naval reserve in H.M.C.S. Prevost in London.
RUTHERFORD believed he had a responsibility to his country and the navy to advocate for the service, and until his death, he used the Internet to press his campaign.
"He was really a naval hero," HOARE said.
RUTHERFORD also served as chairperson of the London division of the Canadian Corps of Commissionaires.
"He lived a full and memorable 84 years, which were characterized by a deep love for family, country and the navy," HOARE wrote in tribute.
