Sault man killed in hit and run on Walpole Island
By Marissa NELSON and Jonathan SHER, Free Press reporters
A man walking along a road on Walpole Island was killed early yesterday when he was struck by a van whose occupants got out after the collision, then drove away, police say. Elvis SWANSON, 37, of the Sault Ste. Marie area, was pronounced dead at the scene of the hit and run, Lambton Ontario Provincial Police said.
A 22-year-old Walpole Island woman has been charged with criminal negligence causing death and failing to remain at the scene of a collision.
She was being held in custody yesterday awaiting a bail hearing.
The woman was arrested after she told Walpole Island police the van had been stolen, a claim that proved false, police said.
witnesses: told police they saw at least four people get out of the silver van after the crash, then get back in before the van took off.
"They got out and realized what happened, then sped away," Lambton Ontario Provincial Police Const. John REURINK said.
SWANSON was walking on Altiman Road, near South Creek Road, when he was hit just before 2 a.m., police said.
There are no sidewalks on the rural road.
A van matching the description of the one that hit SWANSON was found in a cornfield five kilometres away.
Forensic investigators are doing tests on the van, REURINK said.
Walpole Island police have enlisted the help of Lambton Ontario Provincial Police, Ontario Provincial Police technical traffic collision investigators and the forensic identification unit.
Last year, Lambton County racked up 21 traffic deaths, up from the usual 13 to 15 a year.
"Last year, it was bad," REURINK said. "It was a spike, but most could be attributed to driver error, alcohol or drug use. It was one of those years."
REURINK said despite yesterday's tragedy, he hopes the pattern doesn't repeat itself in 2005.

'Devil's Brigade' veteran was a self-taught man
By Marissa NELSON, Free Press Reporter
It was like a scene out of a movie: a packed train station, soldiers in new uniforms waving feverishly as the train chugs away, their sweethearts left behind on the platform. Marie MANNING, who was just a little girl, says that's exactly how she remembers it the last time she saw her father until the end of the Second World War.
"My dad was a picture on the bedside table," the Tillsonburg woman said.
By the time he returned, he'd changed. The family had, too.
Her father, Robert MANNING, part of an elite unit nicknamed the Devil's Brigade by the Nazis, died January 27. It's believed he suffered a heart attack after shovelling snow. He was 87.
"He was always strong and fit," Marie MANNING said. "He was a big man to me, right from my childhood."
Robert MANNING's pre-war, carefree nature was replaced by a serious, disciplined one by the time he returned in 1945.
Perhaps it was not surprising, given what he had to do during the war -- something he only started talking about later in life.
The First Special Service Force was an elite unit of Canadian and U. S. soldiers. They were trained to parachute behind enemy lines, scale mountains and take on near-impossible tasks -- considered by some as suicide missions.
"They were trained to think their life was insignificant. Fear became the challenge," Marie MANNING said.
The unit arrived in Italy in November 1943 and their first task was to get Germans off two high peaks -- Monte la Difensa and Monte la Remetanea.
The Devil's Brigade scrambled up ropes in dense fog to scale Difensa. They took Monte la Remetanea after a six-day battle.
Secretly surging ahead of troops, unit members had to kill those who saw them to keep their presence secret.
MANNING was lost for a year in Italy after being shot. By then, his family had given up hope.
Meanwhile, MANNING's wife, Isabella, had to go to work. Marie was sent to live with her grandparents and her brother was sent to foster parents.
In 1945, the family was thrown back together.
"It took years for him to lose the edge," Marie recalled. "He would scream in the night. He fought his war for a long, long time."
Fellow veteran and longtime friend Harvey KING remembers MANNING as a serious man.
"If he put his mind to something, he could do it," KING said. "He read everything he could. He was a self-taught man."
MANNING built homes in Tillsonburg and ran an elderberry farm.
"He was very shrewd -- we always said he had the first dollar he made," his daughter said.
What troubles Marie MANNING is that neither her father nor his unit got the recognition she believes they deserved. "Two countries came together to fight for freedom," she said. "I feel a big loss and a little bit of anger."

Fatal ride possibly a driving lesson
By Marissa NELSON, Free Press Reporter
A grieving London woman said yesterday her 16-year-old son may have been getting a driving lesson from his father when their car went off the road, killing them both. Allan RUMBOLD, 51, and his son Alex RUMBOLD, 16, died when the car they were in hit a tree at Woodhull Road and Gideon Drive in the city's west end, just east of Kilworth, about 2: 30 p.m. Wednesday.
The crash occurred while the road was blanketed by snow.
Rita RUMBOLD said she thought her son, who had his learner's permit, and husband of 21 years might have been going to a park to walk the family's dog when the crash happened. "They both loved that dog," she said.
The family pet survived the crash with some injuries.
Allan and Rita were born and raised in London and met when they attended Central secondary school. They started dating after they graduated.
"Allan had a lot of Friends. He would have helped anyone out," Rita said. "We were both interested in art."
She chuckled recalling some of the zany things Allan would create, including a foam sled.
But Allan put his creativity to good use, starting a business called Artec Design and Manufacturing Corp. in his early 20s. The company made carved leather belts.
The couple spent several years in Western Canada, where the company got a major boost during Stampede time in Calgary -- a hot market for such belts.
The belts are now sold across Canada.
The couple returned to London, where both of their families lived, and had two children -- Alex, who was a South secondary student, and his older sister Sandra, who attends the University of Western Ontario.
"Alex was very quiet," Rita said. "He loved to snowboard and skateboard. He was just starting to play the guitar -- we bought him one for Christmas."
Alex was like his father, in that he always wanted to know how things worked, she said.
"Alex was an introverted guy."
Jeff BLAKE, who met Rita and Allan in elementary school, remembered the days he spent at the family's cottage in Port Franks.
"I think fishing was hereditary for him," BLAKE said of Allan known as an outdoorsman.
Steven KEENE, who met Allan in elementary school, said his friend likely would have looked forward to teaching his son how to drive.
"He taught me how to drive standard," KEENE said.
He described his friend as a integral part of the dozens of Central alumni who have stayed in touch for decades.
"If it's true that as people we're all made up by those we've met and known, then I'm less now then I was before the accident," KEENE said.
The RUMBOLDs' cottage was where the Central alumni had one big, collective 40th and 50th birthday party.
"We're going to commit to keep this relationship (between the Central alumni) going in his memory," Keene said. "He loved his family and Friends and was willing to put whatever effort was necessary to sustain them."
The visitation for Allan and Alexander RUMBOLD will be tomorrow from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., at the A. Millard George Funeral Home on Ridout Street.
The funeral will be Monday at 2 p.m. at Robinson Memorial United Church on Richmond Street.
Memorial donations can be made to the Child and Parent Resource Institute at 600 Sanatorium Rd.

HARRIS built steel empire
Milton HARRIS, a London native, died after a battle with cancer. He was 77.
By Marissa NELSON, Free Press Reporter
From his father's London scrap metal business, he built an empire. Milton HARRIS, 77, died Saturday after a short battle with cancer.
The London native, who launched his business in 1954, was the founder, chairperson and chief executive officer of Harris Steel Group.
The Toronto-based steel maker -- the largest manufacturer of concrete reinforcing steel in North America -- has annual sales of more than $600 million
Ellis-Don Construction co-founder Don SMITH was the Harris company's first customer.
Yesterday, SMITH remembered HARRIS as a close friend.
He recalled a time the steel wasn't correct and he called HARRIS to complain.
"He said, 'Fix it and send me the bill. If you say it's wrong, it's wrong,' SMITH recalled. "Any time I needed help with a charity, I'd call him."
HARRIS was a local Liberal, a former member of the London board of education and a prominent member of the Canadian Jewish Congress.
SMITH said there were few people he'd rave about like HARRIS.
"He'd stick up for the underdog," he said. "I only have two photos in my office -- one of my family and one of me and Milt (HARRIS.)"
In 2003, HARRIS gave $200,000 to the London Young Men's Christian Association to make sure less fortunate children could have the camp experience he cherished.
He saw first-hand, he told The Free Press in 2003, how the experience turned around the lives of many Depression-era children in the Forest City.
HARRIS went to the Silver Beach Camp, a one-time camp on Lake Erie.
"He had some great memories from the 1930s," Shaun ELLIOT/ELLIOTT, chief executive of the London Young Men's Christian Association, said yesterday.
"He was very generous and always remembered he got his start in London."
All HARRIS -- who came from a humble background -- wanted from the Y for his donation was a list of the children who had been helped -- a list now numbering more than 200.
Elliott said he spoke of how, even back then when he faced anti-Semitism in many places, the Young Men's Christian Association was a welcoming, non-discriminatory place.
"He was a very direct man. He wouldn't suffer fools gladly."
The Young Men's Christian Association tried to hold an event to recognize HARRIS for his generosity but he wouldn't allow it.
A news release from the company said HARRIS was diagnosed with cancer recently. His nephew John HARRIS has been appointed chief executive officer of the firm.
"Milt was a modern-day renaissance man with a special genius for commerce. I believe his greatest talent in business was to empower and mentor so many of us," John HARRIS said in the release.
Geno FRANCOLINI, a Londoner and director of the company for 12 years, said his longtime friend was heavily involved in the local Liberal scene, drawn to it by his belief in Canada and desire for it to excel.
HARRIS was part of a group of local Liberals who helped Judd BUCHANAN capture the Conservative stronghold of London West. BUCHANAN was another director for the company that went public in 1967.
"I respected him very, very much. I loved him very, very much," FRANCOLINI said.
Both HARRIS and FRANCOLINI sat at one point as directors of Air Canada -- fired when Brian MULRONEY came to power.
HARRIS was educated at St. George's school and Central collegiate in London before going to the University of Toronto. He served on the University of Western Ontario's senate.
He was made an officer of the Order of Canada in 1986. He is survived by his wife Ethel and children Judith, Naomi and David.

AUSTIN, Arthur Graham (1920-2005)
Peacefully at Royal City Manor in New Westminster, British Columbia on January 26, 2005, in his 85th year. Graham AUSTIN was born in Calgary on August 13, 1920 to parents Arthur and Vera AUSTIN. He attended the University of Alberta, graduating in Commerce and signed up as an officer in training in 1942. During his training on the West Coast he courted his future wife, Audrey PUTNAM of Winnipeg, and was posted to England in the spring of 1943. Graham served in the 5th Canadian Armoured Division as a Lieutenant commanding a platoon of the 1st Canadian Motor Ambulance Convoy evacuating wounded from the front. After the conclusion of the Italian campaign Graham's unit was transferred to Northwest Europe where he served with the Canadian Army in Holland. Upon Graham's return to Canada in 1946 he married Audrey and settled in Calgary where Graham obtained his Chartered Accountant's designation. After working for some small companies engaged in oil and gas exploration, Graham joined TransCanada Pipelines in 1954 as one of the original employees. In 1956, Audrey, Graham and their young family moved with TransCanada Pipelines to Toronto where Graham was a key member of the team building the national pipeline. Graham became Corporate Controller of TransCanada in 1971 and was the first Canadian appointed as an officer to the American Gas Association. Graham represented TransCanada Pipelines on its first endeavours to develop the gas resources in the Arctic and Mackenzie Valley delta and at the time of his retirement in 1984 was Vice President and General Manager of one of the company's diversified transmission operations. Graham was an active member and committee volunteer at St. George's United Church in Toronto, the Financial Executives Institute and enjoyed entertaining his Friends and family at the family cottage on Lake Muskoka. After retirement Graham remained active in volunteering for several years as Treasurer of the Canadian National Institute for the Blind. Graham was blessed with many dear Friends from his youth, U of A, the Army, TransCanada and Muskoka. He loved to cruise Lake Muskoka and was famous for his 'moose call' and infectious laugh. His children have great memories of going on day-long explorations of the three big lakes in the early days with their Dad in his ten horsepower outboard. Graham was slowed down with a stroke in 1989 but continued to live life as fully as he could. In 2001, he and Audrey moved west again and settled in New Westminster. Graham lost his beloved Audrey in 2002 and missed her terribly but was buoyed by the support and comfort of his family and Friends. Graham leaves his four children: Penny NELSON (Paul), Joan VON ENGELBRECHTEN (Fred), Ron (Trudy) and Paul (Beth;) grandchildren Martha, Julia and Tristane NELSON Karl and Eric VON ENGELBRECHTEN; Danielle, Ryan and Tim AUSTIN and Alexander, Michelle and Natalie AUSTIN; brother Douglas AUSTIN of Calgary and sister Madeline FREEMAN of Toronto. Graham was a fond brother-in-law to Jim and Bunny PUTNAM, Margaret PUTNAM, David and Carolyn ELLIS and Mary PUTNAM and remembered by numerous nephews and nieces. A special note of thanks is extended by Graham's family to Mary Ann Corona and all of the staff at Royal City Manor for their wonderful care of Graham and Audrey over the years. A memorial service will be held at Como Lake United Church, corner of King Albert and Marmont streets, Coquitlam, British Columbia, at 11: 00 am on Thursday February 3, 2005 with a reception to follow.

BASFORD, Hon. Stanley Ronald, P.C., Q.C.
Died suddenly at his home in Sechelt, British Columbia January 30, 2005. He was predeceased by his father Douglas, mother Betty and brother Bromley. He is survived by his children Daniel and Megan and their mother Madeleine NELSON; sisters Phyllis BASFORD, Vivian O'GRADY and Sonia ANDERSON; nieces and nephews John (Heather,) Michael (Frances), Sally (Adrian), Sandie (Greg), Nancy, Marnie (Barry), Bromley (Darlene), and Kate (Pete).
Born in Fort Garry, Manitoba, April 22, 1932, raised in Winnipeg and Comox, British Columbia, he graduated in law from University of British Columbia in 1956. Although he practiced law for several years, politics was his passion. In 1963 he was elected as the Liberal Member of Parliament in Vancouver Center, and re-elected in the next four elections.
He became Minister of Consumer and Corporate Affairs in Pierre Trudeau's government in 1968 and subsequently served as Minister of State for Urban Affairs, Minister of National Revenue, Minister of Justice and Attorney General for Canada. He was responsible for the passage of much progressive policy and legislation and worked tirelessly to the benefit of his constituents, his city and Canada. His most memorable local legacy was the realization of his vision for Granville Island. Of national importance was Canada's first Human Rights Act, developed and shepherded through the House of Commons by Mr. BASFORD. It was a particularly proud moment for him when, as an outgrowth of that legislation, Canada adopted its Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
He left politics in 1978 and returned to the practice of law in Vancouver until he retired in 1989. During that period he also served as the Coordinator of the massive North-East Coal project and held several directorships. As a private citizen he served numerous community organizations, traveled, gardened, and appreciated the peace and solitude of his waterfront home.
At his 65th birthday celebration he said, "I chose a life of public service and the Liberal Party to help give a voice to those without a voice."

Of Mississauga, Ontario, formerly of Winnipeg. It is with profound sadness that we announce Marilyn's passing in the early morning hours of Wednesday, April 27, 2005. Marilyn, affectionately called "Aunty MiMi" by her nieces, will be forever cherished by her husband Chris FREMONT, her family in Winnipeg: sister Evelyn MACKENZIE-REID (Chuck REID), nieces Diana MacKENZIE, Donna NELSON and family, her beloved Aunt Ishbel in Scotland and long time friend Joseph RYAN of Mississauga. She was predeceased by her parents Daisy and Jack MacKENZIE, Winnipeg. Marilyn loved her family, Friends, nature, all animals, music and was proud of her Scottish heritage. Her love for nature and animals was projected with her caring for all creatures great and small. Marilyn delighted in her daily visits feeding and watching the antics of "her Black squirrels", birds and other creatures. During her courageous battle with cancer, Marilyn's concern was not for herself but for her "Chrissy" as she so fondly called him. Marilyn reached out her hand and touched your heart. Cancer may have taken her away, but cherished memories will always remain. Chris and family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff at the Credit Valley Hospital, Mississauga for the care and compassion shown Marilyn. Marilyn requested cremation and no formal service. As an expression of sympathy, in lieu of flowers, donations in Marilyn's memory may be made to the Mississauga Humane Society, 1050 Shawnmarr Rd., Mississauga, L5H 3V1 or the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, 16586 Woodbine Ave., R.R.#3, Newmarket, L3Y 4W1.
