In loving memory of a wonderful Dad and Grandfather, Peter, who passed away 11 years ago, October 22, 1994. God took the strength of a mountain, The majesty of a tree, The warmth of a summer sun, The calm of a quiet sea, The generous soul of nature, The comforting arm of night, The wisdom of the ages, The power of the eagle's flight, The joy of morning in the spring, The faith of a mustard seed, The patience of eternity, The depth of a family need, Then God combined these qualities, When there was nothing more to add, He knew His masterpiece was complete, And so, He called it, Dad. If we could turn back time, And once more hear your voice, We'd tell you that of all the dads, You would still be our choice, Please always know we love you, And no one can take your place, Years may come and go, But your memory will never be erased. Forever with us, Tim, Cindy and Emilee; Sheila and Nichole; Tracy, Jeff and Jessica.

Michael CLONEY, Lawyer And Judge (1912-2005)
Army officer bound for the Italian front in 1944 instead found himself representing a private charged with murder, the last Canadian soldier to be executed by firing squad
By Carol COOPER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Tuesday, October 18, 2005, Page S9
To the end of his days, Ontario Provincial Court judge Michael CLONEY was haunted by one case. In 1944, as a young army lawyer serving in Italy, he represented a Canadian soldier who was later executed by firing squad, the only Canadian soldier to meet that end during the Second World War.
"I can't believe they found him guilty," Mr. CLONEY told Toronto writer Andrew CLARK years later.
The soldier, Private Harold PRINGLE, had deserted his unit in Italy in 1944 and headed for Rome, where he joined the Sailor Gang, a band of British, American and Canadian deserters who lived day to day by committing crime in a city left largely lawless by the war. When one of the group was found dead in a ditch, PRINGLE was charged with his murder, along with two other gang members. A fourth was granted immunity for his testimony.
According to courts-martial transcripts quoted in Mr. CLARK's 2002 book, A Keen Soldier, the murder victim was a soldier from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, called John Norman McGillivary. He had been shot during a fight with another gang member.
Four of the gang loaded McGillivary into a car and, with PRINGLE driving, headed for a hospital. Along the way, they changed their minds and turned toward a different hospital. Meanwhile, McGillivary appeared to have died, so they instead sought some place where they could confirm it. They drove into the countryside, where they decided McGillivary was, indeed, dead. After some discussion about what to do, PRINGLE and the British sailor who led the gang both shot the body, explaining later they wanted to disfigure it, or make it look like a hit by Italian organized crime.
Eventually, arrests were made and PRINGLE, a youngster from Flinton, Ontario, who had lied about his age to join up, found himself on trial. A week before the court martial began, Mr. CLONEY was removed from the case and sent for staff training. He was replaced by a lawyer who had never before appeared in court. The new lawyer did not let his client testify.
Despite shaky and conflicting testimony from the gang member granted immunity, and a pathologist whose cited cause of death was contradicted by two others, PRINGLE was found guilty. He was shot by a firing squad in 1945, making him the only Canadian soldier sentenced to death during the Second World War, and the last one ever in the Canadian military. PRINGLE did not die alone. The other two Sailor Gang members were also found guilty and executed.
Mr. CLONEY, however, never accepted the verdict. He told Mr. CLARK, whose book was short-listed for the 2003 Governor-General's Literary Award for Non-Fiction: "There was reasonable doubt a mile wide."
Originally intended for the Italian front as a reinforcement officer in 1944, the army decided Mr. CLONEY's legal skills were more useful and kept him at Canadian staff headquarters in Avellino. There, he defended military personnel in courts martial, one of the few trained lawyers available. Although he lacked court experience, Mr. CLONEY quickly won a string of acquittals and gained enough of a reputation that soldiers like PRINGLE sought him out.
After the war, Mr. CLONEY was posted to Ottawa to serve a six-month position with the Judge Advocate General's office. Among other roles, the office advises the military on legal affairs and defends those accused at courts martial. His six months came and went and in 1951 he was moved to Winnipeg as assistant judge advocate general, Prairie command. There he presided for the first time at courts martial as judge advocate, the equivalent of a judge in a criminal court.
A transfer two years later took him to Germany as deputy judge advocate with the Canadian unit posted there. There he was asked to settle the claim made by the sons of a widow murdered by a Canadian soldier. They wanted $500 to cover the cost of entertaining funeral guests and the 20-year-old soldier's death sentence lifted. With no capital punishment in Germany, the prospect of execution troubled them deeply.
Mr. CLONEY filed for the funds and put the men in touch with the Canadian Governor-General, then Vincent MASSEY. The sons received the money and the soldier's sentence was changed to life imprisonment.
Eventually, Mr. CLONEY was promoted to lieutenant-colonel and assigned to the army's central command in Oakville, Ontario, as assistant judge advocate. In the end, his six months lasted until 1961, when he finally retired from the army. Of his years with the Judge Advocate General's office, Mr. CLONEY told the Osgoode Society for Canadian Legal History in 1996 that he wasn't out to make a lot of money. "We were satisfied to accept whatever was our pay of rank; I think we practised law in its pure form and sense, which probably isn't true in respect of every role that lawyers play."
Born in downtown Toronto, Mr. CLONEY was the youngest of three children of an Irish-Catholic family. Until a disabling accident, his father worked as a tailor. Before raising the couple's children, his mother ran a dressmaking business. The family lived in a semi-detached house, the other half belonging to a rabbi and his family. Singing, dancing, shouting and praying emanated from the house, and the backyard was taken up with a three-storey synagogue. Mr. CLONEY said it was an early lesson in tolerance for him and once recalled his grandfather as saying, "These are holy people; let them pray."
He entered elementary school at age 8 and high school at 12, the same year his father died. About that time, young Michael decided he wanted to be a priest. At 16, he entered a seminary only to leave about two years later after finding it too stressful.
With the financial and emotional support of priests and family, Mr. CLONEY studied law at Osgoode Hall, working as a summer guide at Casa Loma to pay his way. After being called to the bar in 1940, he practised real-estate law and joined the Canadian Officers Training Corps. Two years later, he was called up within days of marrying, and sent overseas in 1943, leaving his pregnant wife behind. He did not see his son until the boy was almost After retiring from the army, Mr. CLONEY became a magistrate for metropolitan Toronto. Legislation in 1968 saw magistrates appointed as provincial court judges.
Once while Mr. CLONEY was still a magistrate, an elderly woman addressed him as "Your Majesty." While not a royal, he ran his courts with kindness, consideration and dignity.
"He was a consummate gentleman," said Mr. Justice Eugene EWASCHUK of the Ontario Superior Court, who appeared before Mr. CLONEY as an assistant Crown attorney during the 1960s. "He never lost his temper. The worst I ever heard him say in court was, 'Look here, mister.' "
Early on, Mr. CLONEY made the newspapers for lecturing the head of Satan's Choice motorcycle club. "He treated people all the same and he wasn't influenced negatively or positively," said his son Brian.
In the days before legal aid, Mr. CLONEY took the time to advise defendants to get a lawyer. If they couldn't, he explained court proceedings and their rights to them, much to the chagrin of waiting lawyers. He felt especially keenly for juveniles, who before the Young Offenders Act of 1984, were prosecuted as adults at age 16.
"Mike would bend over backwards to help them," Judge EWASCHUK said. "He would almost never send them to jail for a first offence."
Required to retire at age 75, Mr. CLONEY stepped down reluctantly but kept active as a volunteer and labour arbitrator. Always organized, he kept tax returns dating to 1959 and books describing most of his cases. He wrote his own death notice, leaving a blank for his date of death.
At home, he kept a two-inch-thick file of records concerning the PRINGLE court martial and periodically studied it. For him, the case had never closed.
Michael Joseph CLONEY was born in Toronto on January 17, 1912, and died in Oakville, Ontario on September 14, 2005. He was 93. He leaves his son, Brian, grand-daughter, Deborah, and two great-grand_sons. His wife, Marie, predeceased him.
