FERGUSON, Agnes Ann (née SMYTH)
Went to be with her Lord and her loving husband David early in the morning of November 15, 2005 after a lengthy illness. Mom will be forever missed by her fourteen children Terry Ann (John) CRISCIONE, Larry (Peggy) FERGUSON, Geraldine (Rick) OLDHAM, Barry (Betty) FERGUSON, Diane (David) MITCHELSON, Don (Mary Anne) FERGUSON, Arlene (John) HIGGINS, Joyce (Alan) BROOME, Mark FERGUSON, Dale (Jonathan) RUSSELL, Frank (Sharon) FERGUSON, Scott (Lia) FERGUSON, Jannine (Joe Bowen) FERGUSON, Shelley (Dave BELL) FERGUSON. She is loved by her sister Nancy ENRIGHT and brothers Terry and Kevin SMYTH. She is united with her sister Eileen CARNEGIE and brothers Frank and Stan SMYTH who predeceased her. Mom was blessed with her grandchildren Vince (Karin), Jill, Charlene, Nicole (Glenn), Patrick, Krista (Craig), Karl, Kyle, Bob (Tonia), Kevin (Lisa), Sarah, Kathleen, Joseph, Jonathan, Jason (Terrie), Becky, Kyle (Kendra), Lindsay, Derek, Craig, Mark, Julia, Casey, Allana, Danielle, Sophia, Bianca, David and great-grandchildren Abby, Brooklyn, Evan and Ky. She also leaves behind many sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law. Mom was born in England on August 5, 1927 and at the age of three moved to Canada with her family, where she later met her husband David. Raising fourteen children in tough times was a full time job, however, this exceptional mother always worked late at night at a "real" job for extra income to help support her family. Many will remember her little car up and down the concessions as a rural route mail lady. For many years Mom was a lifetime member of the Royal Canadian Legion where she volunteered her time and efforts. Mom loved her bingo, her bowling and her golf. In retirement she enjoyed wintering in Panama City and Phoenix where she was a true sun worshipper. If wealth were measured by family and Friends, Mom had riches beyond compare. Our family would like to thank the staff, physicians and nurses at The Wynfield in Oshawa and Markham Stouffville Hospital for their wonderful care. Friends may call at Low and Low Funeral Home, Uxbridge for visitation on Thursday, November 17, 2005 from 1-4 p.m. and 6-9 p.m., and Funeral Mass on Friday, November 18, 2005 at 11: 30 a.m. at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Uxbridge. Interment Uxbridge Cemetery. In Mom's memory, donations may be made to the Royal Canadian Legion or the Canadian Cancer Society. "Don't be dismayed at goodbyes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetimes, is certain for those who are Friends."

Former Owen Sound mayor dies
Bob RUTHERFORD served the city for nearly 30 years
By Jonathon JACKSON, Saturday, March 05, 2005
Bob RUTHERFORD, whose career in municipal politics spanned nearly 30 years and included 16 years as Owen Sound's mayor, has died. He was 76.
Mayor Ruth LOVELL announced his death Friday during council's budget deliberations.
Mr. RUTHERFORD had been in Owen Sound hospital for a few weeks before he died there. The nature of his illness was not announced.
“I will certainly remember him as a very effective and personable mayor,” LOVELL said Friday. “He will be a person who is very missed.&rdquo
“He just loved this community,” said Coun. Arlene WRIGHT, who worked with Mr. RUTHERFORD at Rutherford Signs for 20 years.
“A true politician, dedicated,” summed up Gail NORRIS, who has worked for six Owen Sound mayors. “When he talked, people listened to him.&rdquo
Mr. RUTHERFORD was first elected to city council in 1962 and became mayor in 1965. He served in that position until being defeated in 1974 by Warren LOUGHEED. Mr. RUTHERFORD returned to office in 1976, ousting LOUGHEED in the next election.
He was mayor until 1982, when he was defeated largely due to his support for what was then a controversial plan to replace the city's downtown arena with what is now called the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre.
After the arena was condemned due to a structural problem, Mr. RUTHERFORD engineered a deal with A and P to build a new grocery store on the site of the old arena. He then helped push through an application which helped the new community centre qualify for an expiring grant program with only one day to spare.
But in a time of soaring interest rates and a poor economy, fears of higher taxes because of the Bayshore's cost resulted in Mr. RUTHERFORD's defeat and the election of Ovid JACKSON as mayor.
“The most wonderful thing that I ever got for the city... was the thing that killed me,” Mr. RUTHERFORD said on election night in 1982.
“I have no regrets. I would not have changed anything along the way.&rdquo
NORRIS, who still works in the mayor's office, recalls clearly a conversation she and Mr. RUTHERFORD had which she thinks says a lot about him.
“ ‘Gail, I'm going to vote that we build the Bayshore because the grants are available now and we need a new arena.' But he said, ‘I can tell you, I'll probably lose the election, ' ” she said. “What always amazed me was the day they opened the building and Bob was a guest, they gave him a standing ovation. You know, he had the vision.&rdquo
In 1985, as he had done in 1976, he challenged the man who had defeated him. JACKSON won re-election and Mr. RUTHERFORD vowed he was done with politics.
“I'm finished,” he said at the time. “I'll never run as a candidate again.&rdquo
It was a promise he didn't keep. He ran for a spot on city council in 1988, finished fifth in a field of 11 and served Owen Sound for three more years.
WRIGHT, who at one time was also Mr. RUTHERFORD's neighbour, said she always appreciated how he was a blue-collar worker who slipped comfortably into the mayor's chair.
“He was just an all-round guy and very well liked.&rdquo
He was president of the Association of Municipalities of Ontario in his final term on council, she noted, and he always kept abreast of goings-on at city hall. In fact, he dropped into city hall a year ago during budget deliberations.
NORRIS visited Mr. RUTHERFORD last Sunday, shortly after she'd heard he was in the hospital.
“We had a nice visit but I knew that he was extremely ill... But he still had the twinkle in his eye and the smiles.&rdquo
The arrival of some of Owen Sound's industrial plants also coincided with Mr. RUTHERFORD's terms of office, NORRIS added.
The family released a list of 18 clubs and boards to which Mr. RUTHERFORD belonged, ranging from the board of governors at Georgian College to the North Star Masonic Lodge to the Owen Sound Jaycees. His family declined to comment on Mr. RUTHERFORD's passing in a note sent from Breckenridge-Ashcroft Funeral Home.
In an interview on the eve of the 2000 municipal election, Mr. RUTHERFORD reflected on his political life.
“I had love for the city and I wanted to get involved,” said Mr. RUTHERFORD, who owned a downtown sign business for many years. “I was fortunate enough to be able to have the time, as my father and my stepbrother both said they'd run the shop while I worked at running the city.
“It's something you really have to love and enjoy, because you do take a lot of criticism. You're close to the people. They can pick up the phone and phone you and tell you what they think.&rdquo
He tried unsuccessfully to unseat both Progressive Conservative member of Parliament Gus MITGES and Liberal member of provincial parliament Eddie SARGENT. SARGENT had preceded him as mayor.
“I ran against Eddie a couple of times, but that's what you call ass-burning learning,” he said with a laugh.
Robert Edward RUTHERFORD is survived by his wife, Shirley J. RUTHERFORD (née EBY,) was father of Ross WARD and his wife Penny, Brent RUTHERFORD, Catherine and her husband Bob WEBBER and Rahnda YULE. He leaves eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, his brother Tim RUTHERFORD and his wife Violet. Predeceased by his brothers Paul, Jerry and Peter.
A private family service has been held. Friends are invited to a come-and-go reception in the Bay Room of the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, March 13. Donations to the Grey Bruce Regional Health Centre Foundation M.R.I. fund or to the Shriner's Hospital were what Mr. RUTHERFORD wished.

Fred ESCAF always cooking something
By Peter MITTON, Free Press Reporter
Fred ESCAF made a lot of food, a lot of Friends and a lot of noise. Almost all of it was with his older brother and lifelong business partner, Ed. Together the two opened the Friar's Cellar in 1962, a restaurant and lounge that went on to become a London landmark, as well as several other successful establishments across Southwestern Ontario.
An incorrigible entertainer, Fred ESCAF planned to share another of his culinary creations with family on Christmas Eve.
But it wasn't to be.
Fred, half of the great team of Ed 'n Fred, died December 22 at age 71.
"We got along really well in business," Ed said. "But if you didn't know us, you'd think we were fighting our way through."
New secretaries were told to ignore whatever they heard coming from behind the brothers' office door, Ed recalled. Their emotional shouting matches were just a loving, fraternal language.
In fact Fred always liked things a little rambunctious.
The seeds for that might have been planted in the 1940s. Fred, Ed and sister Adeline lived with their parents above the Wellington Tavern, which the ESCAFs had bought in 1938 soon after emigrating from Lebanon.
"It was wild. We were just kids and the Wellington was not the most quiet bar in London," Ed said.
The young brothers spent many evenings perched at the top of the stairs, waiting to catch a glimpse of a fight in the tavern downstairs before they would go to bed.
And long before the brothers took over and expanded the tavern beside the Wellington Street rail underpass, Fred was flaunting his budding business skills.
With wartime came beer rationing and limited entry to the pub, but, much to the wait staffs' confusion, there was always a few too many patrons.
Young Fred had set up shop at the back kitchen door, selling stools to the surplus drinkers and pocketing 25 cents a head.
"He was quite an entrepreneur that way," Ed said.
That business acumen served the brothers well for the next 40 years.
And although Fred retired from their Friars Caterers business last year, his love of cooking never waned.
Whether it was barbecuing for the whole block on his front lawn or recreating his mother's Lebanese cuisine without a recipe, Fred was never far from the stove.
His next-door neighbour and good friend of 30 years, Al Servant, says things won't be the same without Fred phoning at 2 a.m. with a request to come taste his latest creation.
Fred also will be missed by a number of community groups. He and Ed were honoured by the Boys' and Girls' Club and Museum London, among others, for their longtime support.
Fred is survived by his wife Nancy, daughter Jennifer, and grandchildren, Wesley and Tyler, whom he took to as many hockey and soccer games as he could in later years. His son Michael died in 1994.

BOURASSA, Paul Emile
World War 2 Veteran - Royal Canadian Air Force No. 419 Squadron
It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our father, Paul BOURASSA, on Monday, July 25, 2005, in his 90th year after a lengthy illness fought with courage and dignity. He joins his beloved wife of 53 years, Thelma BOURASSA (née MARSHALL.) Dad is survived by his five children: Lynn, Paul (Violet), John and Dale BOURASSA and Anne HARDY (Glenn COOKE;) his ten grandchildren Ryan, Renee, Shawn, Paul, Shannon, Michael, Jody and Krista BOURASSA, Lauren and Jordan HARDY; two great-grandchildren - Kayleigh and Shane MITTS and his sister Jeanne MILJOURS of Noranda, Quebec.
Dad was a terrific father. He spent the larger portion of his income on housing, feeding and clothing five children yet he still found money to purchase passes to the local outdoor swimming pool during the summer, take us on camping trips to Lake Simcoe as well as outings to Musselman's Lake and Niagara Falls.
And it was pretty amazing having a Dad who was a war hero. He saved three men from his burning Lancaster bomber when it crashed in England after returning from a bombing mission. For that feat, he personally received a Distinguished Flying Cross from King George VI.
Dad was a fitness guru long before it became popular. Even in the last year of his life, test results indicated his heart was like that of a 50 year old man. He walked vigorously after every meal and was still cycling at the age of 85. In addition, to exercising, Dad loved to garden, golf, bowl, tend to his dog and cat, read biographies and do crossword puzzles, all while listening to his beloved country music.
We children have learned a lot from Dad. We get our love of cleanliness and orderliness from him as well as our strong work ethic. If something broke down in the house, he would fix it before eating his dinner. He was not a procrastinator and neither are any of his children.
At Dad's request, there will be no funeral or memorial service. However, a Dedication Ceremony will be held at Trenton War Museum on Saturday, September 24, 2005 at 2: 00 p.m. to commemorate a plaque in his honour. Dad, we willl remember the twinkle in your eye.
