Following his commissioning as a Pilot Officer, he served as a flying instructor before a tour of ops as a fighter pilot with the 418 Mosquito Squadron in England during 1943-44.

15-year-old's death renews call for crosswalk
By Dale Anne FREED, Staff Reporter
Neighbours in the area where a Toronto teen was killed while crossing a busy Scarborough street say they've been demanding a stoplight or crosswalk there without success.
Parisa Kabir BHUYAN, a 15-year-old Grade 10 student at Riverdale Collegiate Institute, was only a few blocks from home when she was struck by three cars as she got off a Toronto Transit Commission bus near Danforth Rd. and St. Clair Ave. E.
She had just left the northbound Danforth bus at Linwood Ave. when she bounded into heavy traffic at about 7: 30 p.m. Tuesday.
"We need a crosswalk here, or a stoplight," said Tony PALMA, who heard brakes screeching from inside his home across the street.
"A lot of people have been hit by cars on this street. I know at least five people who have been hit by cars over the last 10 years," said PALMA.
"It's 60 km/h here, but cars typically fly down this street at 70 or 80 km/h. They drag-race on this street, too."
"We've been begging for a crosswalk here,' said long-time resident Gerry Damovski.
The driver of a northbound Chevy Lumina whose car struck the girl as he passed the bus appeared to be driving within the speed limit, said a witness.
While Parisa's family made funeral preparations, Friends and classmates were undergoing grief counselling at her school, where the flag flew at half-mast yesterday.
"She (Parisa) was very well-known, a wonderful all-round student. She participated in a number of different clubs," said principal Ralph NIGRO. " Our big focus was dealing with the young people who were quite upset."
Parisa, a member of the Muslim Students Association, was a happy teen who offered support to students trying to fast during Ramadan, said a friend.
She was a talented dancer and had entered a contest at her school that was to take place next month, her Friends said.
"It was very tragic event... sad news involving a beloved student at the school," NIGRO told the students over the public address system yesterday morning as they observed a moment of silence. "We're all saddened by it."
The investigation continues.

Tot dead, man charged
"I can't believe someone could hurt an innocent little boy,' grieving dad says.
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter
Little Donnie CLUBB was going to play hockey.
Just hours after learning the provincewide search for the blue-eyed toddler ended with the grisly discovery of a child's body, Donnie's grieving dad reflected on that simple dream and wept yesterday morning.
"I can't believe someone could hurt an innocent little boy," CLUBB said.
"I wanted to watch him grow up, go to school. I wanted him to play hockey, too, because I played hockey."
Shawn Tyler PALMER, who had dated Donnie's mother since about April, was charged yesterday with first-degree murder in the youngster's death and disappearance.
Investigators found a child's remains in a wooded area of Cambridge yesterday morning after interviewing PALMER, 36.
The murder charge was announced by Waterloo Regional police hours later.
Those brutal developments ended a massive search that began Thursday morning, when Courtney CATTON, 21, reported her only son missing from their Chatham home.
An Amber Alert was issued for Donnie and PALMER was arrested Friday night in Kitchener.
Though officers didn't confirm whether the remains were those of Donnie CLUBB, his father said he was told early yesterday the boy had been found dead in the Kitchener area.
"All they told me is my son's gone forever," said CLUBB, who hadn't seen his son since February due to a court order involved Catton.
"He's not even two years old. How could you hurt an innocent little boy?"
The timeline of the days leading up to the body's discovery has been confusing. But yesterday, the following details surfaced:
- PALMER and the toddler were travelling in Simcoe County, north of Toronto, from Monday to Wednesday, with CATTON's consent, Chatham Insp. George FLIKWEERT told Canadian Press.
- CATTON went to bed Wednesday night thinking her son had been brought home by PALMER, police said.
- Investigators were called to her Edgar Street home Thursday morning and later issued an Amber Alert.
- PALMER was arrested in a friend's Kitchener home late Friday without incident -- and without the toddler.
- About 1: 30 a.m. yesterday, Chatham-Kent police told Matt CLUBB his 22-month-old son had been killed, but the body not yet found.
- Yesterday afternoon, Waterloo Regional police -- who have taken over the investigation -- announced the discovery of a body and the murder charge against PALMER.
"He was just the most beautiful little boy," said Pamela CLUBB, Donnie's grandmother.
CATTON, a Ridgetown native, and her family couldn't be reached for comment yesterday.
The provincewide search for Donnie that started Thursday -- and included hundreds of volunteers scouring Chatham -- took on a troubling tone as it stretched into the weekend. Fewer than 10 per cent of children in non-parental abductions survive beyond 24 hours, one expert said.
Even Matt CLUBB, who lives near Chatham and has never met PALMER, was expecting the worst on Saturday. Despite that, he was levelled by news of his son's death hours later.
"I still can't believe it's happening," he said yesterday. "This is my first kid, my only kid. You never think this stuff would happen to you."

McCAIG, John Robert " Bud" (1929-2005)
Beloved husband, father, grandfather, friend, entrepreneur and philanthropist, J.R. (Bud) McCAIG, died peacefully while at his vacation home in Barbados on Tuesday, January 11, 2005 at the age of 75 years. Bud will be dearly missed by his wife M. Ann McCAIG and his brother Maurice McCAIG (Nicole,) his three children Jeff McCAIG (Marilyn;) JoAnn McCAIG and Melanie McCAIG (Al MAGEE) Ann's three children Roxanne McCAIG (Mark BARTKO), John McCAIG (Penelope) and Jane McCaig WALLER (Rich) and his 18 grandchildren. Bud was predeceased by his parents J.W. (Jack) McCAIG and Stella McCAIG, his sister Jeanne (McCAIG) PALMER and his brother Roger McCAIG. Bud will also be sadly missed by the many, many people whose lives he touched, impacted and inspired throughout his life as a friend, mentor, business associate, and community leader. Bud was born on June 14, 1929 in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, the first son of Jack and Stella McCAIG, a hard working couple with vision. When he turned 16, Bud joined his father at his growing truck company, Maccam Transport, and not long after that Bud had three trucks of his own. In 1961 Bud moved to Calgary with his family when Maccam acquired H.M. Trimble and Sons. Soon after that Bud began to unfold his vision to transform the company from a Saskatchewan trucking firm into a major Canadian transportation company. When Bud's dad retired from Maccam Transport in 1962 the three McCAIG brothers formed a new holding company called Trimac and with Bud at the helm they built one of the most successful, progressive and innovative transportation companies in North America. At the heart of Bud's success, was a set of values and principles handed down from his parents. This guided Bud's every decision and was reflected in his deep commitment to the people who worked for Trimac, the communities in which he lived and worked and his family. Like his father, Bud was a hard working, entrepreneurial businessman who believed strongly in being an industry leader, setting an example for others and giving back to the community. Bud also applied his values to his work as a philanthropist and volunteer. He believed that if something was worth doing it was worth doing well and he was never deterred by the personal sacrifices required to realize the dreams of the many charitable organizations he served. He envisioned Calgary leading the world in the delivery of health care services and medical research. One of his passions was research in the area of the treatment and prevention of arthritis and this led to the establishment of the McCaig Centre for Joint Injury and Arthritis Research in 1993. In March of 2004 he helped advance that dream further when he contributed $10 million to the new Bone and Joint Institute at Foothills Hospital. Bud's leadership in this area has gone a long way to attract some of the world's finest researchers to Calgary. Bud served as the Chairman of the Board of the Foothills Hospital Foundation from 1991 to 1994 and Vice Chair of the Foothills Hospital Board of Management. During that time he was a driving force behind the development and successful completion of Partners in Health, the $50 million capital campaign for health care research, equipment and services. At the request of Alberta Premier, the Honorable Ralph Klein, Bud was appointed the Chairman of the Calgary Regional Health Authority in 1994 and took on the job of restructuring the Calgary health care system. He also helped create the Calgary Health Trust, as the fundraising arm of the new regional health care system and served as its first chairman. Over the years, Bud was recognized for his many accomplishments. In 2004 he was one of three inaugural inductees in the Calgary Business Hall of Fame. In 2002 he received the Queen's Jubilee Award and in 1999 he became a member of the Order of Canada. In 1998 he received his honorary doctor of laws degree from the University of Calgary and the Distinguished Business Leader Award from the Haskayne School of Business and the Calgary Chamber of Commerce. Bud also received the Canadian Master Entrepreneur Award of the Year in Alberta and Canada in 1994. In addition to his interests in business, health care, and medicine, Bud was also a very passionate hockey fan and was well known as one of the owners of the Calgary Flames, a role he found particularly satisfying in 2003 when the team came within one goal of winning the Stanley Cup. While Bud enjoyed great success in all aspects of his life, he never forgot his roots and maintained a spirit of humility, kindness and integrity that endeared him to everyone who had the privilege of knowing him. Bud had a unique ability to unite people around a vision and to see it through to completion. His own personal example won him the respect and admiration of all who worked with him and served with him. He will be greatly missed but his legacy will live on to remind future generations of the impact that one life lived well can make. If Friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made to the Calgary Health Trust - Alberta Bone and Joint Institute (McCaig Centre), 10101 Southport Road S.W., Calgary, Alberta, T2W 3N2. Announcements to follow. Arrangements in care of McInnis and Holloway Funeral Homes Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 Elbow Drive S.W. Telephone: (403) 243-8200.

B. Marion AXFORD
By Grant SMITH, Wednesday, April 27, 2005, Page A22
Teacher, guidance counsellor, honorary mother. Born December 20, 1917, near Delhi, Ontario Died February 21, in Toronto, of natural causes, aged 87.
Marion AXFORD was born on a farm south of Delhi and from her earliest years, she dreamed of becoming a teacher. She spent hours in the woodshed behind the house playing with a blackboard and chalk to teach spelling and arithmetic to imaginary kids. She would admit years later, however, that as a child, she ran low on self-esteem. The desire to teach and the search for self-esteem in herself and others would consume her for the rest of her life.
She attended McMaster University in Hamilton, obtaining her B.A. in 1939 with a major in mathematics. These were difficult times for women to make their way in the world. She applied to teach mathematics at Elmira High School in 1941. When the board reviewed her application, one member opined, "Women can't teach math," to which the director replied, "This one can." And she did for the next five years. Marion followed this by becoming the first woman to serve as registrar and dean of women at Waterloo College.
In 1952, she returned to her hometown to teach mathematics at Delhi Secondary School where she met an inspector from the provincial Department of Education named Olive PALMER. Olive married John DIEFENBAKER, the future Prime Minster of Canada. She provided Marion with the first nuance of a vision that would turn into a lifetime mission to develop guidance programs for students. In the process, the two became the greatest of Friends.
In 1955, she accepted a job in Agincourt followed by a moved to the Scarborough Board of Education as a supervisor of guidance, working at the elementary level to help students select courses for high school. This involved ground-breaking work to develop a guidance course, on-the-job-training in elementary schools, and teaching other teachers how to deliver the program.
Everything in her life, however, was interrupted in late November, 1969. Marion suffered a stroke and in a display of courage and perseverance she made it through the night despite predictions to the contrary. She spent 11 weeks recovering in hospital and would be back to work in August of 1970. She admitted later that she had to get better because the children needed her. A year later she was chief supervisor of Guidance in the Scarborough Board of Education; she retired in 1979.
Ten years after retiring she sat down to write a book about enhancing self-esteem in children. The book was called Me 'n' You, and it finally exposed her for what she was; the Queen of Self-Esteem, the Hug Lady and a creator of the "warm fuzzies."
In recognition of her outstanding service and dedication to teaching and guidance, in 1975 she was honoured with a "Woman of the Year Award" presented by the Ontario Government for outstanding contribution to education in the province. In 1992, the Ontario School Counsellors Association created The Marion Axford Award to be presented in recognition of an outstanding contribution to guidance.
Marion never married, instead choosing to adopt all the children she met along the way. One very special child, Lynda FORGET, lived next door to her in Agincourt. At age 5, Lynda adopted Marion. Reflecting on Marion's life and influence, she said: "When I think of Marion I always think of love; her love of children, her unconditional love of family and Friends and her love of life." This was the heart that drove the spirit. For Marion, reaching out to help children was not a job. It was a love affair. The world will be a better place because she touched the lives of thousands of children and everyone who met her.
Grant SMITH is Marion's cousin.

Boyfriend charged in toddler's death
Toddler found dead in wooded lot near Cambridge
Mother's boyfriend charged with first-degree murder
By Nicolaas VAN RIJN, Staff Reporter
The desperate search for a little boy just shy of his second birthday has ended with the discovery of his body in a wooded lot on the outskirts of Cambridge and the arrest of a man on a charge of first-degree murder.
Police found the body of 22-month-old Donny CLUBB in a wooded area between the Grand River and the Whistle Bear Golf Club early yesterday, but would not say what or who led them there.
"Those human remains we believe to be that of Donovan CLUBB," Waterloo regional police Insp. Bryan LARKIN told a news conference, adding an autopsy must still be done. "We're in the early hours of investigation at the crime scene."
The discovery left the little boy's parents devastated.
His mother, 21-year-old Courtney CATTON of Chatham, was in disbelief, her sister Britney said.
"It isn't real," Britney CATTON said. "It's one thing to lose your baby, but to lose him to murder is another thing. It's unexplainable. The only break that my sister had in so long was her kid. He's never gone from her side, ever."
Matt CLUBB, the boy's father, was in shock. "I can't believe this is happening," said CLUBB, 21. "It's like a bad dream and I'm waiting to wake up. But I can't.
"I don't want to believe that this has really happened, I just miss him so much."
CLUBB said police "won't tell us much... if he was buried or not... because they don't want it to interfere with their investigation."
Pam CLUBB, the boy's grandmother, was overcome with grief. "I have a picture of him in a bathtub, he looks so beautiful.... I've been looking at it and all I want to do is hold him, but I can't."
Donny, who had been the subject of a seldom-used province-wide Amber Alert after his mother reported him missing Thursday, was last seen a week ago, when his mother's 35-year-old boyfriend took him on what police believe was a fishing trip in Simcoe, where he has connections.
"Donny's mother was well aware that Donny was going to go away for a period of time," said Chatham-Kent Insp. George FLIKWEERT.
"What they did there, we're not 100 per cent sure, but they were there for several days."
Casey PETERS, who lives next door to the Kitchener house sometimes used by the boyfriend, said she saw a little boy she believes was Donny in a car with the man Monday.
"The kid looked content," PETERS said.
The fishing trip was to have ended Wednesday, and the boy's mother went to bed that night thinking he was back home.
When she found Donny missing Thursday morning, FLIKWEERT said, she called police, who began a missing person investigation at 10: 48 a.m.
Donny's mother told police her boyfriend returned home to their Chatham residence late Wednesday night, and told her that her son was sleeping in the basement of their home.
The man left at about 5: 30 a.m. Thursday, but when CATTON went to look for Donny later that morning she couldn't find him, and called police.
After the boyfriend was arrested in Kitchener on Canada Day, he was interviewed by detectives with the assistance of members of the Ontario Provincial Police's behavioural sciences unit.
"The investigation revealed the circumstances surrounding the death of Donny," Deputy Chief Jack CHAMBERS of Chatham-Kent police said.
Neighbours of CATTON said she had been living with Donny and her boyfriend on Edgar Ave., a quiet street on Chatham's south side.
Rosaire STERLING and his wife Ruth, who have lived on Edgar for 37 years, recalled seeing the energetic child playing in front of their home.
"He used to play right on the road, but my three granddaughters played in the back," Sterling said. "I used to holler at the mum to pull him in. It's a calm street, but there's still a bit of traffic.
"These people didn't cause any rumpus," STERLING added. "They were good people."
Neighbours and other well-wishers began placing flowers in front of CATTON's house, roped off with yellow police crime scene tape, shortly after the news of Donny's death broke yesterday.
Among those paying their respects were Brenda McKINLAY, her young son Zack and boyfriend Bob.
After she placed a single red rose and a small stuffed teddy bear in front of the house, her boyfriend paused and considered the little boy standing beside them.
"Zack's the same age as little Donovan," said Bob.
"It kind of hits home."
Donny's father, meanwhile, was struggling to cope with his loss.
"He was an energetic little boy, always moving, always smiling, always full of life," CLUBB said. "I'll never have the chance to see him grow up and be with him."
Donny's grandmother, too, thought of the good time that will never come again.
"When he would cry, I would take him to the kitchen window and he would look outside, and he would laugh, but that will never happen again," Pam CLUBB said.
Charged with first-degree murder is Shawn Tyler PALMER, who was arrested Canada Day on a warrant charging him with abduction.
He is to make an audio court appearance in Chatham on Wednesday.
