HOWALD, Ervine
In loving memory of Ervine HOWALD, a dear Dad and Grandpa, who passed away March 20, 2000.
Five years ago comes with deep regret
It brings back a day we can't forget
Everyday in some small way
Memories of you come our way
If tears could build a stairway
And heartache makes a lane
We'd walk the path to Heaven
And bring you back again
God broke our hearts to prove
He only takes the best
Although we smile and make no fuss
No one misses you more than us
And when old times we often recall
That is when we miss you most of all.
Love always, Carol, Ruth, Rick, Donna and families.

Wishing you were still here.

HOWARD, Harold
July 12, 2004
Beyond Integrity
At his place of residence, the Bobier Villa, with medical care and family nearby Harold HOWARD passed away Twelve July 04. His passing initiated an ongoing period of sorrow. It also marked the end of a life that was lived as much for others as for himself.
Perhaps starting as an obedient little boy it developed his way of life. That way of life showed clearly through as he spent years in the navy, spent years at his volunteering and municipal duties in their village and in most directions of his life. Warm relationship with his caring and attentive family would be his reward. Any overshadowing of that characteristic would be the dedicated care given him by his loving wife Winn during his declining years and through his death. Hers was an unflagging and compassionate performance. And now she walks alone. But in walking alone it will be on their chosen path, a path with spiri tual guidel ines, a path that bears the footprints of their children, a path drawn with a moral compass, a path for all their years. So in remembering we offer our grateful thanks, for we too number among for whom that life was lived.
Closed is the door to that room in our hearts,
The one that was Harold's to share
Not just because he is gone from us now
But because of the memories in there,
And only should gray skies beset us
With a sorrow too heavy to bear,
Will we open the door to that room in our hearts,
For some of those memories we share.
Frank and Ruth HUMPHREY and family in Stratford.

Richard OUTRAM, Poet 1930-2005
Writer who was a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation stagehand by day viewed the world in a grain of sand. A private and intensely emotional man, his devotion to his art was nourished by a lifelong love of his wife, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Tuesday, February 1, 2005 - Page S7
On the coldest night of the winter, poet, stagehand and widower Richard OUTRAM, having consumed a quantity of pills and drink, sat on the enclosed side porch of his house in Port Hope, Ontario, and, in a grand Blakean gesture, contemplated the universe and quietly allowed himself to die.
Everything that made his life joyful emanated from his love for his wife and collaborator, the artist Barbara HOWARD. She died in 2002 during an operation to fix a broken hip. "Devotion is not too strong a word," said writer Barry CALLAGHAN. " The two of them fed each other beautifully and with enormous intensity. They were the closing of the couplet. So, what are you going to do with a one-line couplet? He really was his work and his love for her."
Mr. OUTRAM was not the only poet to have a day job that required entirely different skills from his literary vocation. The poet Raymond SOUSTER, for example, spent his working life at the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce. It was Mr. OUTRAM's conscious decision to spend his days at physical labour so his mind would be free in the evenings to devote to his poetry. But unlike other working poets, such as Mr. SOUSTER, Mr. OUTRAM won very little popular or critical acclaim.
Although he published steadily for more than 40 years, he won only one major prize -- the City of Toronto Book Award in 1999 for his volume Benedict Abroad. There is only one book-length critical study of his work, Peter Sanger's "Her kindled shadow..." An Introduction to the Work of Richard OUTRAM, which was published in limited numbers by The Antigonish Review in 2001.
Instead of a popular audience, he had a series of passionate champions, such as Mr. Sanger, a retired academic. "Richard has both a physical and a metaphysical orientation that isn't compromised at either level," explained Mr. Sanger. "When Richard writes well there is absolutely no distinction between those two levels." Although Mr. Sanger agrees some poems are better than others, he says what makes Mr. OUTRAM's work stand out is its "magnificence coherence." Every poem is ultimately linked to the rest of his body of work.
Richard Daley OUTRAM was born in Oshawa, Ontario, the son of Mary Muriel DALEY, a teacher, and Alfred Allan OUTRAM, an engineer who served in the artillery in The First World War and was wounded at Ypres in Belgium. His mother's father was a Methodist minister who was deeply involved in the negotiations to form the United Church of Canada in 1925. His paternal grandfather ran the hardware store in Port Hope, the town east of Oshawa where Mr. OUTRAM and his wife moved in 2000.
Shortly after young Richard's birth, his parents moved to the Leaside area of Toronto. As a teenager, Mr. OUTRAM was already interested in music and botany, two areas that remained central to his poetry for the rest of his life. Graduating from Leaside Secondary School in 1949, he went that autumn to Victorian College at the University of Toronto to begin an honours degree in English and Philosophy. There he encountered two professors, philosopher Emil FACKENHEIM and literary critic Northrop FRYE, both of whom had a huge impact on the way he thought about the world. He also enlisted as an officer cadet in the reserve system of the Royal Canadian Navy, spending the summers of 1950 and 1951 aboard frigates in the Bay of Fundy and at H. M. C. S. Stadacona in Halifax.
After he graduated from the University of Toronto in 1953, he worked for a year at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in Toronto as a stagehand and then moved to England where he found a job in the same capacity for the British Broadcasting Corporation. It was in London that he first began to write poetry and where, in 1954, he met visual artist Barbara HOWARD. From that meeting their lives were entwined until her death in 2002.
"You can't speak of them apart," said Louise DENNYS, executive vice-president of Random House Canada. "They were so completely connected and so beloved of each other, and that is what proved in the end to be impossible for him to live without."
Four years older than Mr. OUTRAM, Ms. HOWARD was born in Toronto in 1926, began drawing as a child, graduated with honours and a silver medal from the Ontario College of Art in 1951 and then taught school to earn enough money to continue her studies in the major art centres of Europe.
They returned to Canada in 1956 and Mr. OUTRAM went back to working as a stage hand and then crew leader at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, a job he would hold until he retired at 60 in June, 1990. The late typographical designer Allan FLEMING/FLEMMING (of the Canadian National logo among other work) was the best man at their wedding in April, 1957, and also the designer and publisher of Mr. OUTRAM's first collection, Eight Poems, a chapbook with a print run of 190 copies that appeared in 1959 under the Tortoise Press imprint.
The next year, Mr. OUTRAM and Ms. HOWARD founded The Gauntlet Press, producing an elegant series of hand-printed volumes of Mr. OUTRAM's poetry over the years decorated with Ms. HOWARD's beautifully coloured wood engravings.
Early in their marriage, the OUTRAMs had a daughter who lived for only a day. His grief is encased in several poems including Sarah, which appeared in his first major collection, Exsultate, Jubilate (1966,) an elegant volume designed by Mr. FLEMING/FLEMMING and published by Macmillan Co. of Canada.
Toronto writer Barry CALLAGHAN, who was one of the hosts on Weekend, a local Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television show, met Mr. OUTRAM on the set in the late 1960s. "I became aware of this intense man standing beside the camera, dressed like a guy working on the floor but staring at me like a hawk," Mr. CALLAGHAN said in a telephone conversation. After the two men struck up a conversation, "I discovered this very isolated and intensely intellectual man who was interested in poetry and ideas."
In the middle 1970s, Mr. OUTRAM took the manuscript for Turns and Other Poems to the now defunct Clarke Irwin publishing house. Two young editors, Susan KEENE and Louise DENNYS pushed the collection, but Clarke Irwin was already in its demise and was doing very little original publishing.
"He had a shining, sharp, sense of the natural world and he was able to give it a sense of form, a sense of greatness larger than and one moment," said Ms. DENNYS. "He saw the world in a grain of sand and he did that in a way that was very beautiful and very particular to his work and to him."
Ms. DENNYS wanted to find a way to publish the book and Mr. OUTRAM suggested she meet his friend bookseller Hugh ANSON- CARTWRIGHT. Bookseller and poet had met years before, the way such people usually do, over a volume of Mr. OUTRAM's poetry that Mr. ANSON- CARTWRIGHT was trying to sell in his bookstore. Then it turned out that they were neighbours and a lifelong Friendship ensured.
The Christmas of 1974, Ms. DENNYS took the manuscript on a visit home to her parents in England and cold-visited the Hogarth Press, a division of Chatto and Windus. She met poetry editor D. J. Enright, who eventually offered to publish Mr. OUTRAM's poems. She came back to Canada and was able to tell Mr. ANSON- CARTWRIGHT that if he wanted to form a little publishing company, here was a British partner. That is how Turns and Other Poems was published by Chatto and Windus with the Hogarth Press in London in 1975 and by Anson-Cartwright Editions in Toronto the following year. "That moment, when I elided happily in his life back then, was a moment of great pride for Hugh and for me too," she said. "It was the first time that I was involved directly in a book's publication."
Mr. ANSON- CARTWRIGHT published another volume of OUTRAM poems, The Promise of Light in 1979 and Mr. Callaghan's Exile Editions did a Selected Poems in 1984. "He had a fantastic sense of form and a musical ear for what he was doing that was almost perfect, but often his poems were the prisoner of his skill," said Mr. CALLAGHAN, adding that "you can't be first rate every time out and there are times when the form traps what he is trying to do."
Shortly after writer Alberto MANGUEL arrived in Canada in 1983, he met Mr. OUTRAM. "I was awed at first by the strange combination of intelligence and devastating humour," said Mr. MANGUEL. " For all the seriousness of his poetry, he was a very funny man."
After reading Mr. OUTRAM's poetry, Mr. MANGUEL says he was surprised, as he has been so many times in Canada, that "a poet of Richard's magnitude" was not celebrated around the world. "Richard's poems were very serious and complex, and in many cases they required a lot of time and patience from readers," said Mr. MANGUEL. " You had to disentangle the references and look up the words, but it was always worthwhile. When you discovered what he meant, the poem built to a different level."
The next person to publish Mr. OUTRAM was Tim INKSTER of The Porcupine's Quill, who released Man in Love (1985), Hiram and Jenny (1989) Mogul Recollected (1993) and Dove Legend (2001). "It is incredibly elegant and sophisticated and passionate and demanding and even, to a lot of people, off-putting, because verbally it is immensely clever and full of allusions and references," said writer and poetry editor John METCALF. "It is probably some of the most rewarding stuff that has been written in Canada."
Writing poetry, even life itself, lost its purpose for Mr. OUTRAM after his wife died. "Richard was always sending me poems that he loved by other people," said Mr. MANGUEL, mentioning the poem Winter Remembered by John Crowe Ransom about an "... Absence, in the heart, /" that was too great to bear and how the only way to soothe it was to "...walk forth in the frozen air/."
"He must have been thinking of that poem," concluded Mr. MANGUEL sadly.
Funambulist by Richard OUTRAM, 1975
I work on a slender strand
Slung between two poles
Braced fifteen feet apart.
My patient father coached me
From childhood to fall unhurt,
Then set me again and again
On a crude slack-rope he rigged
Out back of our caravan,
Raising the rope by inches:
Now, I'm the only acrobat
In the world to include in his act,
As finale, a one-hand-stand
Thirty feet from the ground
With no net. I married
A delicate, lithe girl
From another circus family.
We are very happy. She stands
On the circular platform top
Of one pole, to steady me
As I reach the steep, last,
Incredibly difficult slope
Near the pole: when I turn about
To retrace my steps, no matter
How quickly I spin, she is there
At the top of the opposite pole,
Waiting, her arms outstretched.
From Turns and Other Poems, published by ANSON- CARTWRIGHT Editions.
Richard Daley OUTRAM was born in Oshawa, Ontario on April 9, 1930. He died of willful hypothermia in Port Hope, Ontario, on Friday, January 21, 2005. He was 74. He was predeceased by his wife Barbara. A celebration of their lives is being planned for a later date.

Bill was born and raised in Calgary, attended Western Canada High School and received his B.A. (1940) and law degree (1941) from the University of Alberta. After serving overseas with the 31st Alberta Reconnaissance Regiment, Royal Canadian Armoured Corps, he co-founded the law firm of Cairns and Howard which later became Howard Mackie.

Dianne Lee MARTIN
By Ingrid GADSDEN and Linda HOWARD, Monday, June 27, 2005, Page A14
Friend, lawyer, teacher, dog lover. Born March 19, 1945, in Regina, Saskatchewan. Died December 20, 2004, in Toronto, of a heart attack, aged 59.
Since her death, many have written about Dianne's extraordinary legal career, her dedication to the Innocence Project, a program she co-founded at York University, and her love of teaching law all of them outstanding achievements in what was a rich and satisfying life. There were, however, other facets of her life that made her memorable to many who had little familiarity with her professional life. To most of those folks, she was simply "Dianne - Magic and MacLeod's mom."
Magic and MacLeod are Dianne's beloved collies. Almost every morning for more than eight years, she walked them in the off-leash park at Toronto's Cherry Beach. Clad in gloves, boots, parkas and toques in winter, sandals and colourful drapey smocks in summer, Dianne was a familiar, welcoming sight. For the first few years she'd arrive as close to sunrise as possible, hiking through snowdrifts, mud puddles or knee-high grass to stand at the point and watch the sun rise over the Leslie Spit. It was like watching a painting come to life, she'd say.
Dianne never lacked for walking companions at Cherry Beach -- humans or dogs. She drew them to her through her strength of personality and the affectionate, generous spirit she exuded. Pockets jammed with plastic poop-bags and homemade, organic liver treats, she discovered the names of hundreds of dogs long before she knew their owners. For that alone, she earned our admiration, but as the years slipped by, we loved her for so much more. She attracted us, like bees to pollen.
Walking the dirt paths in all kinds of weather, she entertained us with eye-popping stories and opinions on everything from cross-examination techniques to butterfly migration and the science behind DNA. There wasn't a topic she couldn't talk about intelligently. Plot swings on The West Wing (her favourite television show), gardening, herbal remedies, Prairie politics, and the birth of the feminist movement -- Dianne shared her ideas and listened to ours. Conversations were always spirited, passionate and invigorating. Full of life and with a razor-sharp mind, she adored a good argument and a well-phrased retort. Topics segued effortlessly, one into another, often punctuated by rollicking bursts of laughter.
Cherry Beach was her special place, a gift of nature that she treasured. As the seasons changed, there was always something different to see, something new to talk about. Flocks of geese in a "V" formation, or a blustery northwest wind reminded Dianne of her Prairie days. Pale green buds on trees in spring, buttercups and daisies in summer, Monarch butterflies and masses of chicory blossoms and Saint John's Wort in fall -- all these were catalysts for discussions that went on for weeks and morphed into dozens of unrelated, equally fascinating topics. Dianne left us far too soon.
Today, Magic, Dianne's 13-year old tri-colour collie lives with Ingrid. MacLeod, her sable collie sleeps on the sofa at Linda Howard's home. We love and nurture them the same way Dianne did. We walk with them along the same paths we walked with Dianne, but these days the park seems quieter and a little emptier. Dianne had a powerful and unforgettable presence. That's why, in her honour, the Cherry Beach dog owners are donating funds to buy a permanent bench that will overlook the Leslie Spit at the entrance to the Eastern Gap. It was Dianne's favourite viewing point. We'll inscribe it with her name, a token of our affection for a remarkable, generous and inspiring friend who left us with heaps of enduring memories.
Linda and Ingrid are Dianne's Friends.

ERB, John Edwin (13 September 1932-31 July, 2005)
Reverend Canon, Executive Director, Anglican Foundation
"We have lots of love, Friendship, family; we are blessed." These were some of John's last words, given through a wonderful smile, as his magnificent brain was being ravaged by the Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease. John was born in Kitchener, Ontario, to the late Irvin and Sally ERB (née MEYSCHEIN.) He will always be missed by his adored children Nicholas and Katie, his wife Didy (née BRADISH) of 29 years, his loving sisters and brothers-in-law Cathie and John HOWARD, Hornby Island, British Columbia, and Margie and Bob CARR, Hamilton. 'John The Giant' was a special uncle to Stephen HOWARD and Rhonda SPENCE, Emily HOWARD and Alex LAVIGNE; Tom HOWARD and Landys KLYNE; Mary HOWARD, Stewart, Duncan, Will and Angus MURRAY; Sally HOWARD, Jim and Tommy HAMAGUCHI; Sarah CARR Tim CARR and Kate FEIGHTNER; Pat CARR, Nadine HEINTZ and Oliver CARR; and friend David HUGHES. His many ERB and Meyschein family cousins love him and will miss him.
A passionate Canadian, John was a leader, Anglican Priest, teacher, traveller, camper and actor. Until his late teens John was a member of Trinity United, the ERB family's church, where he grew up in the Sunday School. He attended 'Young People's' both there and at Saint John the Evangelist Anglican Church. When he returned after working for a year in England, he joined the confirmation class at Saint John. Thus began his journey to become an Anglican priest. Graduating from the Kitchener Public School system and Wilfred Laurier University, he received his early theological training from Trinity College. He continued graduate studies in later years in Boston, Virginia and Jerusalem.
John's ministry began at St. Aidan's in 1965. In 1967 his strong identification with young people led him to a truly successful period as Director of Youth for the Church of England, both in Guyana, S.A. and then in the United Kingdom..
John returned to Canada with Didy in December 1973 and continued his ministries, first at Grace Church on the Hill, then at St. Luke's East York. In 1981 he became Rector of St. Michael and All Angels, where he embraced all, and many saw him as more than a pastor. He retired from St. Michael's in 1997. For the past seven years John's energetic leadership has been devoted to the Anglican Foundation of Canada, a work he loved. It enabled him to travel the length and breadth of this country, often visiting parishes in small communities, and as in all of his previous work, met wonderful dedicated people and established lasting Friendships and respect everywhere.
Throughout his working life John participated on many Boards and Committees focusing on community outreach, and has helped develop programs such as Out Of The Cold, Street Haven for battered women and Christie Gardens, and has worked to encourage interfaith ministry. His robust leadership has been recognized and honoured in many ways including the 125th Anniversary Medal of Canada Member and former Chaplain, Order of Saint John Ambulance, Serving Brother - Saint John of Jerusalem; Chaplaincy appointments to The Royal Society of Physicians and Surgeons, The Canadian Club of Toronto, The Benchers and The Order of St. Lazarus.
His personal passions are his family, his ministry, the theatre, ballet, opera, the family cottage at Oliphant and the Taize Retreat in France.
During his hospital confinement John and his family were enormously moved by those many Friends, acquaintances and co-workers old and new, who visited during his last days. Literally, they came by the hundreds from all spectrums of society to reminisce, renew Friendships and offer their love and support. Nothing could have made more visible the lasting impact John had on so many lives.
We will always be grateful for the kindness and incredible care given to John and his family by all the caregivers in the Palliative Care Unit at St. Michael's Hospital.
In lieu of flowers, please join John in his living legacy for theological education through his work at the Anglican Foundation of Canada (80 Hayden Street, Toronto, M4Y 3G2), or to the charity of your choice.
Visitation will be at the Morley Bedford Funeral Home, 159 Eglinton Ave. W., Toronto, between Yonge and Avenue Rd., 1: 00 to 4:00 p.m. and 7: 00 to 9:00 p.m. Friday, August 5th.
The funeral will be held at St. James Cathedral, King St. E. at Church Street, at 11: 00 a.m. Saturday, August 6th. A service preceding interment in Woodland Cemetery will be held in Kitchener at the Church of Saint John The Evangelist, Water Street, north of King Street, on Monday, August 8 at 11: 30 a.m. Reception at 10:30 a.m. in the Church Hall.

Keith OLEKSIUK
By Ross HOWARD and Gary CWITCO, Monday, September 5, 2005, Page A16
Labour advocate, socialist, canoeist. Born April 3, 1947, in Chippewa, Ontario Died Feb 22, in Vancouver, of cancer, aged Keith OLEKSIUK had never considered his own obituary when he was stricken with cancer. He rarely talked of his accomplishments and his still-expanding career as a labour lawyer. For the last two decades, his life had focused almost exclusively on labour relations and New Democratic Party politics, his family and his community in Vancouver. But he often recited the boyhood joys of jumping into Chippewa Creek, near Niagara Falls, where he was born.
Early on, Keith acquired a respect for sweat labour and harsh conditions working summers in Chippewa's Norton foundry. At York University he was an average arts student with an abnormal course load in political theory. Keith ignored the campus protests over co-ed dorms and marijuana laws, and quietly focused on bigger issues. After graduation Keith joined the front lines of social-justice advocacy, becoming director of the Toronto Unemployment Help Centre. His evenings were eclectic: exploring Toronto's left-wing political circles, and Toronto's music scene. Class-consciousness was linked to most things about Keith: it was Grossman's and the Silver Rail, not the O'Keefe Centre, for him. When he went further afield, it was to the North -- the Nahanni River -- for serious canoe-tripping.
The Marxist Institute attracted his intellectual curiosity but its lack of activism held no lasting appeal. It was storefront lawyers, getting dirty in the trenches, that propelled him to Osgoode Hall Law School in 1980. It was there he met his future wife, Cathy AGNEW. In 1983 he joined the United Steelworkers of America staff.
Keith enthusiastically tackled even arcane legal issues, but he personally found most satisfaction in the long evening meetings with steelworkers in towns such as Flin Flon, Snow Lake, Manitoba, and Trail, British Columbia The plain-speaking young lawyer, in blue jeans and leather jacket, could strategize with workers over beers or the labour leadership across Canada.
In 1990, the steelworkers union lured Keith to Vancouver. This new posting brought him before the British Columbia Labour Relations Board. Shortly thereafter, then-premier Michael Harcourt's New Democratic Party government tapped Keith as a vice-chair for the Labour Relations Board. Although he had not sought the post, Keith welcomed the chance to meld adjudication with a labour consciousness. He also championed efficiency and intellectual rigour in Labour Relations Board rulings. Premier Glen Clark made him chair in 1996. He resigned in 2000 without public comment.
Keith was not one to waste his time on tired ideas or tiresome individuals. As a lawyer and adjudicator, he deplored time-wasting litigators arguing flimsy cases. He acknowledged posturing as a form of protest but his patience was short.
Except on the playing field. When coaching his beloved Trout Lake soccer, baseball or hockey teams, Keith had unlimited patience for the weakest player. His encouragement for young teams, and his attention to the minutiae, was a restorative alternative to the cut-throat realm of British Columbia labour relations. His children Danny, Shane and Kayla, were his greatest pride and, with Cathy, the centre of his life.
By 2002 Keith was again before the British Columbia Labour Board, as staff lawyer for the British Columbia Government Employees Union fighting the new British Columbia Liberal government policies. He also resumed New Democratic Party political activism and mused about international work.
Life, although not necessarily the state of the world, pleased Keith, but nothing fulfilled him more than the accomplishments and love of his family.
His trademark ear-to-ear grin, his sparkling eyes and his good-hearted challenging nature will be sorely missed.
Ross was Keith's canoe partner; Gary his sometimes squash partner.

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."

Viceroy praises murder victim
By Paul CHOI, Wednesday, September 14, 2005, Page A15
Lieutenant-Governor James BARTLEMAN said yesterday that two brief encounters with a homeless man who was beaten to death last month "enriched" his life.
Mr. BARTLEMAN joined more than 100 people at the Salvation Army Gateway to remember Paul CROUTCH, 59, who died on August 31 after suffering a beating while sleeping on a bench in Moss Park in Toronto.
Three reservists have since been charged in his death.
"He was an individual with a unique sense of dignity, whose life we have come together to commemorate," Mr. BARTLEMAN said in a speech at the funeral. "He was a man with accomplishments in his life, with Friends, and was someone who touched the lives of many."
His connection with Mr. CROUTCH began a few years ago, when he took part in a breakfast run conducted by the Salvation Army, Mr. BARTLEMAN said. He said he offered Mr. CROUTCH coffee after spotting him sleeping on a bench and they struck up a conversation.
"We talked for a few minutes. He told me he had been a newspaper editor in a small community in northern British Columbia, and had been living on the streets of Toronto for years," he said.
"I had the pleasure of meeting him again elsewhere. He was always well-spoken, obviously a person who was celebrated and very likable. I remember after that first morning, I told my wife when I went home that I had met a really remarkable person. He enriched my life from those brief encounters."
Yesterday, Friends and family of Mr. CROUTCH remembered the man with stories of his "healthy" days -- before paranoid thoughts pushed him to the streets.
"He was entrepreneurial, he had successes in his chosen professions," said Don HARRIS, director of the Good Neighbours' Club, a drop-in centre where Mr. CROUTCH would take showers and rest. "But slowly his illness began to overtake his logic... until finally he had to be on his own."
Gary McCRIMMON, a worker at the centre, said Mr. CROUTCH was a bit of a "loner" who never caused any trouble while he ate his meals and did his laundry.
"He was a quiet guy who mostly kept to himself," Mr. McCRIMMON said. "He was easygoing, very smart, and very opinionated. But much of his time was consumed by thoughts of paranoia toward those he believed wronged him."
At the service, Marilyn HOWARD, who was married to Mr. CROUTCH for 25 years, said he was a loving father who lived a "really good life" until his mental illness began to consume him.
"Unfortunately, he refused help at every turn," said Ms. HOWARD, who urged people to treat the problems of homelessness and mental illness more seriously.
"We need to talk about these [mental health issues]," she said. "We shouldn't pretend we don't see these people. Look them in the eye and say 'hello.' Just try to elevate people's lives. One person can make a difference."

Marc POULIOT
By Frank HOWARD, Tuesday, September 27, 2005, Page A20
Officer and gentleman. Born May 30, 1955, in Magog, Quebec Died April 1 in Ottawa of a heart attack, aged 49.
The death of a good man always comes too soon.
So it was for Brigadier-General Marc POULIOT, who died suddenly one afternoon in April.
Marc was at the top of his form that sunny spring day when he collapsed outside National Defence Headquarters in Ottawa. Earlier that noon-hour, he had kissed Jennifer, his wife and the mother of their two young daughters; and they parted. It was their last embrace.
There was nothing to prepare Marc's family and Friends for the brutal news that he had collapsed and that attempts to revive him on the spot and in an ambulance had failed.
It was so unfair, many who knew him said. His death seemed a frightful waste.
But Marc's life was not a waste. Marc was an over-achiever of the very best kind, the kind that strives and achieves without fanfare, show or self-aggrandizing.
He had, at that time in his life, received many of the rewards one hopes will come for a life well-lived.
He had been recently decorated for his latest success, Operation Athena, the opening of a Canadian base in Afghanistan. He had also been promoted this year to Brigadier-General.
In many ways he represented much that is fine in Canada.
A man of great tact, he could deal with difficult human encounters with quiet good-humour and equanimity. This was never better demonstrated than in his tour of duty near Kabul, where he dealt with the often-conflicting interests of local authorities, warlords and North Atlantic Treaty Organization allies.
Using local labour, he completed the mission on time and on budget with a base that was secure, and located near an appropriate exit route in case of the mission's failure. All of this was done at a time when the German contingent that preceded the Canadians was confined to barracks because of terrorist threats.
Major-General Andrew LESLIE, in his eulogy at the military funeral in Ottawa's Christ Church Cathedral, gave a measure of Marc's diplomatic and administrative skills on this mission. At the ceremony handing over the base to the operations team, Gen. LESLIE said, he was approached by a warlord who wanted to borrow Marc, who was then a colonel.
Gen. LESLIE had to decline the request.
Born and educated in Quebec, Marc worked with ease in both French and English. He had been with the Canadian Armed Forces since 1972. He served overseas with distinction in the former Yugoslavia, the Middle East and latterly, Afghanistan. He was the recipient of a Canadian Forces Decoration.
In 2003, he was chosen to command Operation Athena in Afghanistan. For this work he received the Governor-General's Meritorious Service Medal. Happily, his father Marcel was an invited guest at Rideau Hall for the presentation -- it was one of their last meetings.
His funeral was a solemn event during which his military comrades, family and Friends paid their respects.
And there was the eulogy by his brother-in-law Nicholas TRUDEL, who read the text of a love note written by his sister Jennifer when her husband Marc was in Kabul.
It was found in Marc's daybook. Translated, it read: "It is hard to say goodbye -- so I say: See you soon. It is hard to wake up lonely and without you -- so I keep you close in my heart and in my thoughts always. It is hard to believe that we will be separated yet again -- so I don't believe it and know you are here. It is hard to need someone so much -- to need you when you are so far away, but in my heart I can still kiss you ever so tenderly.
"Come back to me soon my love."
Frank HOWARD is Marc's stepfather-in-law.

He sailed for Canada at the Olympics
By Tom HAWTHORN, Wednesday, November 23, 2005, Page S9
Kingston, Ontario -- Donald TYTLER, who sailed for Canada in two Olympic regattas, has died at Kingston, Ontario He was 81.
In 1952, Mr. TYTLER joined skipper Bill GOODERHAM and other crewmen aboard the six-metre Canadian yacht Trickson VI in the waters off Finland's Harmaja lighthouse. The crew finished seventh overall in an event won by Americans aboard Llanoria. The Canadians' best result came with a second-place finish, three minutes behind Llanoria, on the fourth of seven race days. It was a day of gentle but constantly changing winds that demanded immediate decisions about sails.
Mr. TYTLER returned to Olympic competition in 1956, joining helmsman Dave HOWARD and his brother Cliff HOWARD on Tomahawk III. The Dragon-class racing sloop was sailed from Toronto to Montreal, where it travelled to Australia as deck cargo on a freighter. The journey lasted seven weeks.
Racing in the open waters of Port Phillip Bay, outside Melbourne, the Canadian crew finished eighth in the Dragon competition.
While his crews were competitive if not victorious at the Olympics, Mr. TYTLER could claim a share of the North American six-metre championship in 1954. He joined a Royal Canadian Yacht Club crew skippered by Mr. GOODERHAM aboard Buzzy II, which defeated 12 other crafts in three days of racing on Lake Ontario. The sailors were awarded The Globe and Mail Trophy by the newspaper's publisher.
Donald Milne TYTLER was born in Toronto on March 8, 1925. During the Second World War, he served in the navy. In 1949, he graduated from the University of Toronto with a degree in mechanical engineering and worked for the Toronto school board for 20 years. He died at Kingston General Hospital on November 15.

ERB, John Edwin (13 September 1932-31 July, 2005)
Reverend Canon, Executive Director, Anglican Foundation
"We have lots of love, Friendship, family; we are blessed." These were some of John's last words, given through a wonderful smile, as his magnificent brain was being ravaged by the Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease. John was born in Kitchener, Ontario, to the late Irvin and Sally ERB (née MEYSCHEIN.) He will always be missed by his adored children Nicholas and Katie, his wife Didy (née BRADISH) of 29 years, his loving sisters and brothers-in-law Cathie and John HOWARD, Hornby Island, British Columbia, and Margie and Bob CARR, Hamilton. "John The Giant" was a special uncle to Stephen Howard and Rhonda SPENCE, Emily HOWARD and Alex LAVIGNE; Tom HOWARD and Landys KLYNE; Mary HOWARD, Stewart, Duncan, Will and Angus MURRAY; Sally HOWARD, Jim and Tommy HAMAGUCHI; Sarah CARR Tim CARR and Kate FEIGHTNER; Pat CARR, Nadine HEINTZ and Oliver CARR; and friend David HUGHES. His many ERB and Meyschein family cousins love him and will miss him. A passionate Canadian, John was a leader, Anglican Priest, teacher, traveller, camper and actor. Until his late teens John was a member of Trinity United, the ERB family's church, where he grew up in the Sunday School. He attended "Young People's" both there and at Saint John the Evangelist Anglican Church. When he returned after working for a year in England, he joined the confirmation class at Saint John. Thus began his journey to become an Anglican priest. Graduating from the Kitchener Public School system and Wilfred Laurier University, he received his early theological training from Trinity College. He continued graduate studies in later years in Boston, Virginia and Jerusalem. John's ministry began at St. Aidan's in 1965. In 1967 his strong identification with young people led him to a truly successful period as Director of Youth for the Church of England, both in Guyana, S.A. and then in the United Kingdom John returned to Canada with Didy in December 1973 and continued his ministries, first at Grace Church on the Hill, then at St. Luke's East York. In 1981 he became Rector of St. Michael and All Angels, where he embraced all, and many saw him as more than a pastor. He retired from St. Michael's in 1997. For the past seven years John's energetic leadership has been devoted to the Anglican Foundation of Canada, a work he loved. It enabled him to travel the length and breadth of this country, often visiting parishes in small communities, and as in all of his previous work, met wonderful dedicated people and established lasting Friendships and respect everywhere. Throughout his working life John participated on many Boards and Committees focusing on community outreach, and has helped develop programs such as Out Of The Cold, Street Haven for battered women and Christie Gardens, and has worked to encourage interfaith ministry. His robust leadership has been recognized and honoured in many ways including the 125th Anniversary Medal of Canada; Member and former Chaplain, Order of Saint John Ambulance, Serving Brother - Saint John of Jerusalem Chaplaincy appointments to The Royal Society of Physicians and Surgeons, The Canadian Club of Toronto, The Benchers and The Order of St. Lazarus. His personal passions are his family, his ministry, the theatre, ballet, opera, the family cottage at Oliphant and the Taize Retreat in France. During his hospital confinement John and his family were enormously moved by those many Friends, acquaintances and co-workers old and new, who visited during his last days. Literally, they came by the hundreds from all spectrums of society to reminisce, renew Friendships and offer their love and support. Nothing could have made more visible the lasting impact John had on so many lives. We will always be grateful for the kindness and incredible care given to John and his family by all the caregivers in the Palliative Care Unit at St. Michael's Hospital. In lieu of flowers, please join John in his living leg

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."
