Crash victims identified
By Jennifer O'BRIEN, Free Press Reporter
A London man and his 16-year-old son were identified yesterday as the two people killed when their car struck a tree Wednesday afternoon. Alexander RUMBOLD, 51, and his son, Allan RUMBOLD, died on a road blanketed by snow after the crash just east of Kilworth at Woodhull Road and Gideon Drive, police said.
London police were still investigating the circumstances of the crash. Original reports that a man and woman were killed in the incident were wrong, police said.
A dog that had also been in the car and was injured in the crash was taken in by Animal Care and Control.
Also, Lambton Ontario Provincial Police identified a Sarnia woman killed hours after the Kilworth-area crash, when her van collided with a minivan near Reeces Corner, east of Sarnia.
Laurie COLEMAN, 46, died at the scene of the crash on London Line about 6: 30 p.m. Wednesday, after her eastbound van spun out of control into a school bus.
Police were still investigating that crash.
Meanwhile, London police last night were investigating a single-vehicle crash that sent three teens to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The crash occurred about 8 p.m. on Wellington Road, south of the Glanworth curve, when a southbound vehicle carrying the three went out of control and plunged into a ditch.

Night of horror
Friends were unable to prevent the fight between buddies that left one of them dead on the street in a pool of blood with his girlfriend weeping over his body.
By Jennifer O'BRIEN, Free Press Reporter
A 20-year-old London father is dead, one of his best Friends is accused of killing him and his heartbroken girlfriend and Friends are left wondering why it happened. James BLAIR, the guy "who always had a smile," died Wednesday night after he was stabbed in the stomach in front of a northwest London apartment building.
Eighteen-year-old Mwangi GETHIGA -- known as Kuggy to his Friends was charged yesterday with second-degree murder.
BLAIR and GETHIGA had a fist fight in the apartment at 75 Oakville Ave. that is across the hall from where BLAIR's girlfriend, Sonyda KHOUN, lives with their son, Latteral, Friends said yesterday.
"He was the nicest kid, man. He always had a smile on his face," said Sok PHUM, 26, one of many Friends who gathered outside the building yesterday.
"He always brought you up. That's the way he was."
Still stunned by what they'd seen the night before, Friends were struggling to make sense of what had happened to "one of the coolest kids around."
"We were all sitting around the apartment like always," said Jon COLEBY, 19, one of three roommates who live in the apartment where the fight broke out. "We are all really good Friends. They (BLAIR and GETHIGA) hung out every day."
As he spoke, COLEBY occasionally put a hand up to the bridge of his nose, where a purple bruise reminded him of the fight he'd tried desperately to stop the night before.
A crowd of Friends, including BLAIR, GETHIGA and COLEBY, were drinking beer and planning to take out turntables later to do some freestyle rapping, COLEBY said.
BLAIR was a gifted freestyler, he said. "And when he got drunk, he loved to freestyle."
But that night the skinny, fun-loving dad with the dreadlocks never got the chance.
BLAIR became drunk and obnoxious, said Jessica ROBERTS, 18, who lives with COLEBY and another roommate in the apartment.
"He just started being rowdy and annoying," she said.
Some of the Friends told BLAIR to leave, and he did. But about 10 minutes later, he came back into the ground-floor unit.
GETHIGA then told BLAIR to "get out, that he wasn't wanted in there at the time," COLEBY said.
BLAIR took issue with that and the two Friends started pushing, then punching each other, while others tried to break it up, COLEBY said.
BLAIR left the apartment. But when he was outside, he shouted a racial slur to GETHIGA, he said.
"(GETHIGA) just went in the kitchen and grabbed a knife," COLEBY said. "We all started fighting with him, trying to get him to drop the knife, but he was fighting and punching, he punched me in the face... and we couldn't get it."
GETHIGA made his way out.
By the time COLEBY got outside, BLAIR was down in front of the building, lying in a pool of blood only metres away from his baby boy, his girlfriend and his Friends.
"There was all this blood and his face was so pale," COLEBY shuddered. "He was gurgling."
It was chaos.
BLAIR's girlfriend, Khoun, raced outside. At one point, she held her baby's father in her arms, screaming and crying.
She also called 911, while Friends tried cardio-pulmonary resuscitation.
"She was hysterical," said COLEBY. She was holding BLAIR on the ground, crying out 'Who did this?'
At a friend's house later yesterday afternoon, the devastated young mother could hardly speak.
Holding her 23-month-old in her arms, tears rolled down her cheeks.
Then Khoun asked for a pen and paper to write something to her boyfriend of four years.
"We miss your smile, goofiness and loud mouth," she wrote. "Latteral and I will always love you deep within our hearts... We didn't lose anything. We gained an angel," she wrote.
BLAIR was born and raised in London, went to Sir Wilfrid Laurier secondary school and was taking adult education when he died, his Friends said.
"We're all Friends. We all grew up together," said Ken PHOMSAMOUT. "He had this great big smile."

Plucky cancer fighter dies in Lambton crash
By Jennifer O'BRIEN, Free Press Reporter
He was going to play in the National Hockey League one day. His heart set on that goal, 11-year-old Jalen DAY beat a rare cancer that struck him at goalie camp in 2003.
But yesterday, members of Sarnia's hockey community were devastated to learn the boy known as Smiley -- the boy they had grown to admire -- was killed in a car crash Sunday.
"This is like the cruelest possible plot twist in a movie," said Paul BURGESS, leader of a weekly goalie clinic who shared laughs with Jalen on the ice Saturday.
"You're waiting for the beautiful ending to happen and, all of a sudden, something totally unexpected ruins everything," BURGESS said.
Jalen, who lived in Watford with his family, was one of three area children killed in crashes Sunday.
About 9: 30 a.m., two young sisters, Eva, 4, and Mary FROESE, 9, died on the way to church after a van driven by their mother went out of control on a steep hill near Port Burwell.
The girls' mother, Sara FROESE, three teenage sisters and a male relative suffered non-life-threatening injuries, police said yesterday.
"It's so sad. It's just a freak, sad thing," said Elgin Ontario Provincial Police Const. Jennifer WILKS.
In Lambton County, Jalen's father, David, remained in hospital yesterday with injuries suffered in the crash that killed his son.
The vehicle carrying them collided with another on Petrolia Line around 7: 45 p.m. Sunday. A woman and her six-year-old son from the other vehicle were treated in hospital.
Jalen, sidelined for a year by cancer treatments, had been back to hockey for several months, first at the summer goalie camp, then playing peewee in Watford and attending BURGESS's clinics at the Sarnia Sports and Entertainment Centre.
Everything was going just as Jalen planned, BURGESS said.
"After he found out he had cancer (in August 2003), he told me, 'I'm going to beat cancer because I'm going to play in the National Hockey League someday,' BURGESS said.
"And when he first came back, his skating was suffering because the tumour had affected his right leg. But by Saturday morning, I had put him with the best skaters -- that's how far he had come.
Sarnia Sting goalie coach Larry LUCAS met Jalen at the 2003 goalie camp, where the young boy learned he had a rare form of cancer called rhabdomyosarcoma.
"Everybody is in utter shock," LUCAS said yesterday. "To see him beat cancer and then get a phone call at 7: 30 (a.m.) saying he got killed... I'm really struggling with this."
Jalen was considered a local success story after his rough battle with the brutal cancer that causes tumours to attack muscle cells. The cancer strikes about 60 children around the world each year.
In November 2003, while Jalen was in radiation therapy, the Sting put on a benefit hockey game before a packed arena, raising $25,000 for his family.
London Knights assistant coach Jeff PERRY, then with the Sting, helped organize the game between the Ontario Hockey League team and National Hockey League players.
Jalen dropped the puck.
Yesterday, a "devastated and numb" PERRY recalled the day.
"It was great," he said. "The highlight was Jalen sitting beside me in the dressing room... he looked over at me and said he didn't want the day to end."
Students and staff at Brooke Central school in Alvinston were grieving Jalen's death yesterday.
Principal Ann LARSEN said she couldn't comment personally, but read from a news release.
"Jalen... was always willing to share and express his humour and good sportsmanship with others," the release said.
"His recent success in overcoming cancer was wellknown in the community and his determination to overcome adversity was an inspiration."

Police treat death as homicide
By Jennifer O'BRIEN, Free Press Reporter
Human remains found near Exeter this week are those of a 42-year-old London man reported missing last October.
Huron Ontario Provincial Police said last night detectives are investigating the death of Ronald SULLIVAN as a homicide.
"The autopsy found injuries that are suspicious, that led (police) to a homicide investigation," Huron Ontario Provincial Police Const. Don SHROPSHALL said last night.
Those who knew SULLIVAN had long suspected he was dead after hearing "lots of stories," about his disappearance, said a longtime friend
"I'm very sorry to hear about (the death), but I kind of figured that," said Gary BRADLEY, who had been Friends with SULLIVAN for 30 years.
"I heard he owed somebody about $1,500," he said, declining to go into detail.
Reached late last night, BRADLEY said he would like to talk more about his friend, but "just can't" at that time.
He had just undergone four hours of questioning by police because of his connection with SULLIVAN, he said.
BRADLEY was only one of many people police intend to interview, SHROPSHALL said.
"We are interested in speaking to anybody who had contact with him the day he went missing or even in the days before he went missing."
London police had been searching for SULLIVAN since he went missing last year. He was last seen October 14 at his home at 764 Curry St.
Since that day, BRADLEY said he has suspected foul play in SULLIVAN's disappearance.
Any hopes he had that his friend would be found alive faded this week when he learned Huron Ontario Provincial Police had received a tip that led them to human remains.
The remains were found Tuesday in a bush lot in a low-lying area off Park Road between Elimville Line and McTaggart Line -- a rural road closed during the winter because it's not maintained.
The remains had been there for months, SHROPSHALL said, possibly since October.
He would not elaborate on the nature of the injuries or cause of death.
Provincial police have spent days searching the area around SULLIVAN's remains. SHROPSHALL said they will continue, in hopes of finding "anything at all," linked to the crime.
London police also are involved with the probe, he said.
Anyone with any information about the case should call Crime Stoppers (1-800-222-8477), Huron Ontario Provincial Police (1-888-310-1122) or London police (661-5670).

Big man from big family left a big mark
By Jennifer O'BRIEN, Free Press Reporter
He was no football fan. He rarely watched a game.
But every year Tom DÉNOMMÉ held a Super Bowl party -- throwing a huge spread for all of his 16 brothers and sisters, their spouses and kids.
"Tom was all about his family," said DENOMME's younger brother, Pete.
The great big family man died of a heart attack April 20. He was 51.
"He was larger than life and he was the most compassionate man I know," Pete said.
"I know everybody says that when someone they love dies, but it's true."
Sitting down at a table for four at his London Music Club, Pete DÉNOMMÉ was surrounded by reminders of his brother.
Music notes and instruments sketched into the frosted windows "Tom did those." The sign pointing to the club's washroom "Tom did that." The carmel walls in the entrance -- "Tom picked that colour."
But asked to recall favourite memories of his brother, the club owner paused, swallowing hard as he shifted in his seat.
"There's so much to say about him, it's so hard because I know I can't say it all," he said. "I really want people to know who he was."
By all appearances, many in London did.
Hundreds -- more than 1,000 by some estimates -- poured into St. Peter's Basilica last month in a final tribute to DENOMME.
To the downtown community, the 350-pound man was a popular graphic artist responsible for dozens of signs, billboards and murals that colour many establishments.
He made signs for Jim Bob Ray's, the Honest Lawyer and Joe Kool's, but perhaps the most grand is the massive Mural outside Rockwater Brewing Co. at Galleria London.
To art students he taught at Fanshawe College, DÉNOMMÉ was affectionately known as Tommy.
To patrons of the London Music Club, he was known for his booming voice.
"The crowd loved it when he got up on stage," said Pete DENOMME. "We used to do this song Maria, a made-up song with made-up Spanish words."
Since the live music club opened last year, Tom DÉNOMMÉ was its No. 1 customer, said his brother. In fact, he loved the place so much, he set up an art studio upstairs, where he would paint between visits down to the club.
To his daughters, Danielle and Hailey, both in their 20s, Tom was a devoted father -- a single father for the last 17 years who would drop everything else to come to their aid.
To his brothers and sisters, he was one of the middle children, one who could be counted on to bring humour to most situations.
While planted firmly in the middle of 17 children -- the eldest being 11 years older than him and the youngest being 12 years younger -- Tom DÉNOMMÉ was the first to die.
While his death has left his family shocked and sorrowful, news of it likely hasn't reached his mother, who suffers from Alzheimer's.
"Tom was over at mom's more than any of us, he was so upset over (her Alzheimer's.) He said it wasn't fair," Pete DÉNOMMÉ said. "But in the end, the one blessing she had was that she was spared this pain of him dying."
The rest of the family, meanwhile, is struggling to understand, said another brother, Joe DENOMME.
"It's a real emptiness."

Arrangements for cremation have been entrusted to Ferguson's Funeral Home, Montague, Prince Edward Island Burial will be at Mount Hermon Cemetery, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia at a later date.

O'BRIEN, Andy, 1987 -- Died This Day
Monday, April 25, 2005, Page S6
Journalist born in Renfrew, Ontario, in 1911.
Raised in Montreal where his father later coached the Montreal Maroons hockey team and the Montreal Royals baseball team, he attended Loyola College where he became intercollegiate heavyweight boxing champion and was a member of a national football championship team. In 1931, he got a job selling hats at the local Eaton's store and persuaded the sports editor of The Standard to let him cover a minor league baseball game. The first game he covered erupted into a major riot because of a buildup of errors by the umpire and his story ended up on the front page with a byline. "If that had been a routine game, I'd probably still be selling hats at Eaton's," he said years later. Instead, he was noticed and thus began a sports writing career that led to his induction into the Canada Sports Hall of Fame in 1980 and the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1985. Over the years, while reporting first for The Montreal Standard and later for The Montreal Star, he covered 12 Olympic summer or winter games, six Commonwealth Games, 45 Stanley Cups and 31 Grey Cup games. His biography of Montreal Canadiens right-winger Rocket Richard went into 10 printings.

NICKERSON, Jean Olive (November 16, 1919-June 3, 2005)
The family of Jean O. NICKERSON are saddened to announce her tragic accidental death on the highway outside Bridgewater, Nova Scotia on June 3. Jean was the second child of well-remembered parents, Hubert and Freda (COX) NICKERSON of Liverpool, Nova Scotia Jean is survived by her sisters Mary (Walter McCOWAN) and Dorothy (Dr. Blake O'BRIEN;) and her brother Dr. Granville NICKERSON (Mary Louise LOCKETT); and sister-in-law Barbara IRWIN. She was predeceased by an infant sister Catherine, her nephew Granville, and recently her brother Ronald. Jean was a great favourite of all her nieces and nephews; Lynda and Ian (McCOWAN) David, Sheila and Jeanie (O'BRIEN;) Hugh, Scott and Kent (NICKERSON) Kate and Sarah (NICKERSON;) David, Marnie and Janet (REID.)
Jean was born at Cape Sable Island but grew up at Liverpool, Nova Scotia From earliest childhood her teachers noted that she was idealistic, an extraordinarily bright student. Upon graduation from high school, Jean chose nursing as a calling and graduated from Saint John General Hospital in 1942. Throughout her life she served her patients with uncompromising compassion and dedication. After her graduation Jean worked in the medical office of Dr. J.C. Wickwire at Liverpool, who, recognizing her unique abilities encouraged her to study medicine. Nevertheless, Jean was determined to bring her talents to nursing. Shortly after the opening of the Queens General Hospital at Liverpool, Jean held concurrent multiple positions as Radiologist and Lab technicians as well as receptionist in the Emergency Department. The hospital was distressed to lose her presence and talents when she left to attend Dalhousie University for a diploma in Public Health. She then served in Edmonton, Toronto and Ottawa as an Industrial Nurse, and finally in the Nova Scotia Public Health Department. One of her nursing associates observed, "Jean was literally a pioneer in so much of her work".
In 1992, during the celebration of Canada's 125th year of Confederation, The Hon. Ramon John Hnatyshyn Commemorative Medal was conferred on Jean O. NICKERSON in recognition of significant contribution to compatriots, community and to Canada.
Personally, Jean was a jolly person and enjoyed humour. She had a great facility for Friendships; both children and the elderly adored her. Compassion was the hallmark of her nature. Following our Lord's example, the hungry, the needy, and the elderly frequently benefited from her anonymous generosity.
Jean retired to Bedford, Nova Scotia, enjoying the natural beauty and people of that lovely community. Chronic arthritis plagued her later years whereupon she became a resident of The Berkeley at Bedford. Life is tragic but Jean lived her life heroically.
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.
Cremation has taken place. There will be no public memorial service at the request of the deceased; a private family service will be held at the graveside in the family plot at the Congregational-United Cemetery, Liverpool. Memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Arthritis Society or a charity of one's choice.

MULLEN, Albert Christopher Lawrence
It is with unspeakable grief that we announce the passing this December 16, 2005, of our father, grandfather, brother, friend and moral guide, Albert Christopher Lawrence MULLEN of Whitby, Ontario and Dublin, Ireland. Albert was born January 4, 1936 in Dublin at 15 Usher's Island on the city's south side, the second son of Albert Leopold MULLEN and Bridget MULLEN (née O'BRIEN.) Educated by the Christian Brothers at St. Columba's School, Albert distinguished himself amongst his peers, excelling most prominently in Mathematics. In 1956, he married the love of his life, Kathleen LAWLESS, and the two immigrated to England within hours of marriage, intending to build a new life together in Canada. The couple lived for a time in Toronto's Annex neighbourhood before settling in Whitby to raise their four daughters. Albert was a hard-working man blessed with an inexhaustible patience and a formidable strength of character that carried him through each of his days. A gentle giant of a man who thought of himself only after he looked to his loved ones, Albert was an inspiration to all who were so fortunate to know him. He was predeceased by his brother Joseph Richard MULLEN and survived by his loving wife Kathleen; his brothers Martin and Michael; his sister Bridget; his daughters Theresa, Catherine and her husband Fausto, Maureen and her husband Michael, Jacqueline and her husband Darren; and his grandchildren Albert, Zaira, Natasha, Madeleine, Kathleen, Stefanie, Bridget and Brendan. No matter how many years pass, not one of us will forget the mighty force of his laughter. The family will receive Friends at W.C. Town Funeral Chapel, 110 Dundas Street East, Whitby (905-668-3410), from 2: 00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. until 9: 00 p.m. on Monday, December 19. Mass of the Christian Burial will be held at Saint John the Evangelist Church, 903 Giffard Street, Whitby, at 11: 00 a.m., Tuesday, December 20. Interment, Resurrection Cemetery. In memoriam donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
