Man's body found near park
Woman makes discovery just as search begins
By Scott DUNN, Wednesday, April 27, 2005, Page A1
A search involving 230 volunteers, police and soldiers had just begun when a woman out for a walk along the Meaford shoreline came across Art HAINES' body.
People turned out in droves to look for HAINES, who was known as someone who would help anyone.
He loved walking in the scenic area around Meaford. Police think it was while on one of his regular early morning walks that something went wrong.
Police suspect the 79-year-old outdoorsman had been missing since early Sunday morning. His body was found on the shore at the eastern edge of Meaford, beside Memorial Park, about 1.5 kilometres from his Union Street home.
Grey County Ontario Provincial Police Senior Const. Steve STARR said HAINES was found outside the area to be searched and off his usual walking routes near his home.
Police awaited word from the coroner Tuesday afternoon whether an autopsy would be performed.
Neil HAINES, a paramedic supervisor in Toronto, walked into the community centre about 9 a.m. Tuesday with family members to help search for his dad. He was in one of the 15 teams, each headed by an Emergency Response Team member, looking for HAINES.
“The people of Meaford have just been incredible,” HAINES said in an interview after his father's body was found.
“And the community should be very proud of their Ontario Provincial Police and firemen and military because they have been tremendous... You'd think they were searching for their own father.&rdquo
Police dogs and the Emergency Response Team searched Sunday and Monday when they were joined by Meaford volunteer firefighters and an Ontario Provincial Police helicopter. About 50 soldiers, all-terrain vehicles and a military bus from Land Force Central Area Training Centre Meaford were sent by commanding officer Lt.-Col. Rob WADSWORTH.
HAINES was born in and grew up in the Beaver Valley. He moved to the Toronto area as a young man, married and worked as a general labourer for Scarborough. He and his wife Mary retired to their Union Street home in 1986.
While on his walks he'd come over and pitch in if he spotted someone working outside.
“Everybody knew him in his neighbourhood because he's the type of guy, day or night, whatever you needed, well, call Art. You can depend on him. He'll jump in and give you a hand,” HAINES said.
He took care of his wife in their home as her health declined. About two years ago she moved into a Meaford nursing home.
“Since mom wasn't home, he was out looking for things to do for other people.&rdquo
HAINES said it feels strange to think his father is gone because he had just spoken with him over the phone a week ago. He was healthy, not on medication, and his mind was sound. When word came they'd found his father, HAINES said at least it brought him closure.
Mr. HAINES is survived by his wife, the former Mary Kathleen HARRIS, their son Neil and his wife Carrie-Lynn of Willowdale and daughter Darlene O'DONNELL of Florida and his grandchildren Colin HAINES and Kelly O'DONNELL. He's also survived by brother Fern ALLEN of Barrie and Lucy THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON of Duncan, sisters-in-law Mabel HAINES of Duncan, Hazel HAINES of Meaford and Beryl HAINES of Agincourt.
Visitation at the the Ferguson Funeral Home in Meaford will take place Thursday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Rev. Gary PARKER of Christ Church Anglican will officiate at the funeral service at the funeral home Friday at 1: 30 p.m. Interment and committal will follow at Lakeview Cemetery.

Many other relatives and Friends, including Ross FREESTONE and Helen and Neil FIELD will also remember Harley fondly.
Harley and Jean enjoyed a lifetime together. They met in kindergarten Harley proposed at age 14 and they were married for 51 happy years.

He was a successful businessman who served as a mentor for many individuals along the way. Harley was a man to be counted on when help was needed.

THOMAS, Harriet " Hallie" (née TOMPKINS)
Died peacefully with her family at her bedside, on Monday, April 25th, 2005, at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto. Hallie was born in New York City on December 4th, 1913, the daughter of Leslie Jay TOMPKINS, a noted law professor, and Jean Edgar BURNET, a well-known suffragette. Hallie graduated from The Brearley and from Vassar, where she was the editor of the college newspaper. After graduation she went to Paris as a free-lance journalist for the New York Herald Tribune. There she met John Kempster (J.K.) THOMAS, a brilliant philosophy student who later became a respected editor and psychologist. They were married in 1937 and moved to Toronto where, as a member of the Junior League, she put together the children's radio program 'Sounds Fun'. She was also very involved with the National Ballet of Canada, serving on its first Board of Directors and as the editor of the Ballet News. Saturday nights were spent in rowdy stimulating conversation with her long time Friends Morley and Loretto CALLAGHAN, Mary Lowrey ROSS, film Critic for Saturday Night magazine, and Eustace ROSS, the symbolist poet. When Hallie's husband died, she took up a new career, Real Estate, at the age of 55. After her retirement, she travelled widely across the continent in her red convertible with Molly, her beloved Irish setter. Always game for new challenges, in her latter years she became a prize-winning duplicate bridge player.
She is survived by four children: Mary FARRAR (Edward) and John THOMAS (Liz WHELPDALE) of Kingston, Ontario, and Jeannie Thomas PARKER and Christie Thomas POTTS of Toronto. She was also loved by her late brother James B. TOMPKINS, her sister-in-law, Patty, her niece Teri, and her late nephews, Leslie J. and James B. TOMPKINS, all of Toronto. She was the loving grandmother of 13 grandchildren: Ross, Scott and Andrew FARRAR, Jean PAQUIN (Andy,) Hannah CARLSEN (Angelo), Deepamala and Stephen THOMAS, Tony PARKER, Lisa NORTH (Chris,) Trevor and Joanna POTTS and the late Gavin and Jason POTTS. She was the caring great-grandmother of Meghan and Caitlyn NORTH, Mika CARLSEN and Sarah PAQUIN.
She loved: Friends and Friendship, canoeing in the evenings, helping out in small ways, scotch, genealogy, poolside afternoons, mysteries, crosswords, heady conversation, jokes and laughter, elegance, Gershwin, the Toronto Maple Leafs, French cooking, the New Yorker, scrabble and bridge, parties, bargains, swimming the breast stroke, sunsets, yoga, poetry, and the open road. But most of all, she loved family. We will all miss her enormously.
Funeral arrangements will be announced in tomorrow's paper.

PETERSEN, Niels Forrester (1912-2005)
On November 25th, at his home in Toronto, Niels taught us how to die with as much panache as he had taught us how to live. He passed away peacefully at 10.30 p.m., surrounded by family and Friends, amid, laughter and tears, stories and songs. Niels was predeceased by his beloved wife Betty, his parents Niels and Amelia, and his sisters Irene and Thora. He will be deeply missed by his son Charles, daughter-in-law Riki TUROFSKY, daughter Jane and much loved grandchildren Corbett, Niels and James (Lara) PETERSEN, and Miranda, Jennifer and Katie BURFIELD. He will be greatly missed by his niece Victoria (Ken SPARKS,) and by many Friends including Else KILDEGAARD, and Niels Kildegaard PEDERSEN of Denmark, Doris LAFRENIER, Gordon FOOTE, David and Cathy WILKES, Saturday morning coffee klatch Friends Marie and Jim McGORMAN, Tessa BUCHAN, Julie and Mike PARKER and their wonderful daughter Katelyn, by Garry HANRAHAN, Oksana CHUYKO and also by long-time business associates and Friends Ted TREMAIN and Jim McMYN, and by Brenda WHITE/WHYTE who cared for him and made him laugh to his last hours. Niels was born July 3, 1912 in Ansdell, Lancashire. He was educated in Lytham Saint Annes and in Copenhagen, Denmark, before emigrating to Canada in 1929. Niels began a more than 70-year association with the Young Men's Christian Association of Canada when he joined West End Young Men's Christian Association, becoming Chairman of the National Board of Canada, and Chair of the International Finance Committee in Geneva, Switzerland. He was awarded the Fellowship of Honour by the Young Men's Christian Association in 1982. Niels met his beloved wife, Betty BAUCKHAM, at Young Men's Christian Association Geneva Park in 1938, and managed to engage her interest by disabling her boyfriend with a rigourous course of gymnastics. They were married in Toronto in 1942, shortly before Niels joined the Queens Own Rifles. Flat feet kept Niels from serving overseas. During his service career he trained new recruits in physical fitness, including one grateful Officer who told him 50 years later that his training kept him alive on the beaches of Normandy. While in the army, Niels completed a three-year business correspondence course from Queens University in one year, leading to a 60-year career in business. Niels was President and Chairman of the Board of Sterling Trust, and Chairman of Wellington Trust. He guided Investors Finance Corporation Limited and Commercial Financial for many decades. Niels' passion for boating, begun at 50 when his son, Charles, taught him how to sail, led to hours of peace and challenge in his much loved Nonsuch sailboats both in Florida and Ontario. He enjoyed photography, travel, classical music, and walking. A more recent hobby was following sailing races and reading newspapers from around the world on his computer. He particularly enjoyed listening to Rev. Dr. Andrew STIRLING, broadcast on the internet from Timothy Eaton Church, on the Sundays he was not able to get to service. Saturday morning coffee with Friends at the St. Lawrence Market demonstrated his lifelong gift, an ability to talk with anyone, about anything, at anytime, with laughter and zest. The family wishes to thank Dr. Vincent CHIEN and the A Team at St. Michael's Hospital, for their remarkable care during his final month, and Dr. David GREENBERG for his special kindness. Friends may call at the Turner and Porter Yorke Chapel, 2357 Bloor St. West, at Windermere, East of the Jane Subway, on Tuesday, November 29, from 2-4 pm and 7-9 p.m. A service in celebration of his life will take place at Timothy Eaton Church on Wednesday, November 30 at 3.00 p.m. Donations may be made in his memory to a favorite charity. It is not often that a man can live for most of a century, can experience life before telephones, cars or airplanes were common, and can enjoy the fun of WiFi on an IMac, lucid to the end. He will be lovingly remembered and sorely missed.

PETERSEN, Niels Forrester (1912-2005)
On November 25th, at his home in Toronto, Niels taught us how to die with as much panache as he had taught us how to live. He passed away peacefully at 10: 30 p.m., surrounded by family and Friends, amid, laughter and tears, stories and songs. Niels was predeceased by his beloved wife Betty, his parents Niels and Amelia, and his sisters Irene and Thora. He will be deeply missed by his son Charles, daughter-in-law Riki TUROFSKY, daughter Jane and much loved grandchildren Corbett, Niels and James (Lara) PETERSEN, and Miranda, Jennifer and Katie BURFIELD. He will be greatly missed by his niece Victoria (Ken SPARKS,) and by many Friends including Else KILDEGAARD, and Niels Kildegaard PEDERSEN of Denmark, Doris LAFRENIER, Gordon FOOTE, David and Cathy WILKES, Saturday morning coffee klatch Friends Marie and Jim McGORMAN, Tessa BUCHAN, Julie and Mike PARKER and their wonderful daughter Katelyn, by Garry HANRAHAN, Oksana CHUYKO and also by long-time business associates and Friends Ted TREMAIN and Jim McMYN, and by Brenda WHITE/WHYTE who cared for him and made him laugh to his last hours. Niels was born July 3, 1912 in Ansdell, Lancashire. He was educated in Lytham Saint Annes and in Copenhagen, Denmark, before emigrating to Canada in 1929. Niels began a more than 70-year association with the Young Men's Christian Association of Canada when he joined West End Young Men's Christian Association, becoming Chairman of the National Board of Canada, and Chair of the International Finance Committee in Geneva, Switzerland. He was awarded the Fellowship of Honour by the Young Men's Christian Association in 1982. Niels met his beloved wife, Betty BAUCKHAM, at Young Men's Christian Association Geneva Park in 1938, and managed to engage her interest by disabling her boyfriend with a rigourous course of gymnastics. They were married in Toronto in 1942, shortly before Niels joined the Queen's Own Rifles. Flat feet kept Niels from serving overseas. During his service career he trained new recruits in physical fitness, including one grateful Officer who told him 50 years later that his training kept him alive on the beaches of Normandy. While in the army, Niels completed a three-year business correspondence course from Queen's University in one year, leading to a 60-year career in business. Niels was President and Chairman of the Board of Sterling Trust, and Chairman of Wellington Trust. He guided Investors Finance Corporation Limited and Commercial Financial for many decades. Niels' passion for boating, begun at 50 when his son, Charles, taught him how to sail, led to hours of peace and challenge in his much loved Nonsuch sailboats both in Florida and Ontario. He enjoyed photography, travel, classical music, and walking. A more recent hobby was following sailing races and reading newspapers from around the world on his computer. He particularly enjoyed listening to Rev. Dr. Andrew STIRLING, broadcast on the internet from Timothy Eaton Church, on the Sundays he was not able to get to service. Saturday morning coffee with Friends at the St. Lawrence Market demonstrated his lifelong gift, an ability to talk with anyone, about anything, at anytime, with laughter and zest. The family wishes to thank Dr. Vincent CHIEN and the A Team at St. Michael's Hospital, for their remarkable care during his final month, and Dr. David GREENBERG for his special kindness. Friends may call at the Turner and Porter Yorke Chapel, 2357 Bloor St. W., at Windermere, east of the Jane subway, on Tuesday, November 29, from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. A service in celebration of his life will take place at Timothy Eaton Church on Wednesday, November 30 at 3: 00 p.m. Donations may be made in his memory to a favourite charity. It is not often that a man can live for most of a century, can experience life before telephones, cars or airplanes were common, and can enjoy the fun of WiFi on an IMac, lucid to the end. He will be lovingly remembered and sorely missed.

ARMOUR, John Victor, C.A.
It is with mixed feelings that our family announces the passing of John Victor ARMOUR on Saturday, December 3, 2005. We feel sorrow at the loss of a beloved husband, father and grandfather, but also relief for the end of his valiant struggle. Left to mourn him are his loving wife of 58 years, Joyce, his daughters Joanne (David) HOWE, and Vicki (Graham) PARKER, and his five grandchildren, Jennifer, Christopher and Samantha HOWE, and Megan and David PARKER. Victor will also be missed by his special sister-in-law, Robin BARNES. It is difficult to encapsulate the life of any man, but Victor would especially wish to be remembered for his Welsh heritage. He was born on January 1, 1917, in Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales and emigrated to Canada in 1926. He was a proud Canadian, but he maintained his love of Wales throughout his life. And like many Welshmen, Victor was blessed with a magical singing voice which was showcased when he was one of the original Choir boys at All Saints Anglican Church in Hamilton. Victor was also proud of his service in the Second World War. Achieving the rank of Captain, Victor was responsible for the transport of war brides back to Canada and was awarded several medals. Even near the end of his life, when most memories had faded, Victor could easily and flawlessly recite his army rank and serial number. Finally, Victor would like to be remembered for his achievements in the business world. He worked tirelessly through correspondence courses to become a chartered accountant and he became secretary-treasurer of one of the largest car dealerships in Canada, Elgin Motors in Toronto. While there, Victor revolutionized and instituted an accounting system which later became the standard for other dealerships in Ontario. On a more personal note, the family would like Victor to be remembered as the caring, decent man that he was. Although brutally honest and tactless to a fault, Victor epitomized the honour and grace of a gentler world. His generosity of spirit, caring of all living things and devotion to his family were unsurpassed. We would like to thank him and may God bless him. We say goodbye to our dear Victor, our Dad and our Grandpa. We love you and may you rest in peace. The family would be happy to receive visitors at Smith's Funeral Home, 485 Brant Street (one block north of City Hall), Burlington (905-632-3333) on Monday, December 5th from 3-5 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. A Service celebrating Vic's Life will be held in the Chapel of the Funeral Home on Tuesday, December 6, 2005 at 10: 30 a.m. Please join us for a reception which will follow in the same facility. If so desired, the family would sincerely appreciate expressions of sympathy, in Victor's name, to a charity of your choice. www.smiths.fh.com
