CLARK
--In loving memory of our dear Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother, Eleanor CLARK, who passed away on January 11, 2004.
God looked around his garden and
He found an empty place
He then looked down upon the earth
And saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you
And lifted you to rest,
God's garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering,
He knew you were in pain,
He knew that you would never
Get well on earth again.
He saw that the road was getting rough,
And the hills were hard to climb,
So He closed your weary eyelids
And whispered, "Peace Be Thine."
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you didn't go alone
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.
Always loved and sadly missed by children Allen CLARK (Dianne), Margaret STRINGER (Tom), Marilyn FARQUHAR (Mike), Ken CLARK (Shelley), Ann PARSONS (Eric), and Jim CLARK (Melody), and families.

Homicide No. 13
By Kelly PEDRO, Free Press Crime Reporter
A Toronto-area man faces a second-degree murder charge after one man was shot to death and another injured in a pub parking lot early yesterday.
Dwayne PITTER, 23, of Vaughan, was charged yesterday with second-degree murder and attempted murder in connection with London's record 13th homicide.
PITTER is to appear in a London court today.
Joshua Kenneth WILLIAMS, 22, of the London area, was shot in the torso outside the Roxbury Pub and Grill at 1165 Oxford St. E. at 2: 20 a.m.
He died later.
Three people, including PITTER, were taken into custody. The other two were released, police said last night.
Detectives scoured the lot yesterday as they wrestled with a skyrocketing number of homicides this year.
Neighbours said they saw a crowd leave the bar about 2: 30 a.m., then heard screaming.
"I heard the gunshots and I saw someone go down. I thought it was firecrackers," said a woman who was standing outside the Roxbury near a variety store at the time. She did want to give her name.
"I heard two shots and I ran into the (variety) store."
Police said a dispute outside the bar led to the shooting.
Police and paramedics arrived to find WILLIAMS seriously hurt and another man shot in the arm. The second man was treated and released from hospital.
Police have recovered a handgun and are not looking for any more weapons, said Det. Andrew WHITFORD.
It's unclear whether WILLIAMS, the injured man and the three people in custody had just left the Roxbury when the shooting happened, WHITFORD said.
But there were about 40 people in the parking lot when a disagreement broke out, he said. Police are still probing the cause of the dispute.
WHITFORD said many witnesses: have come forward and bar staff have co-operated.
Roxbury staff declined comment yesterday.
Neighbours have complained of fights and loud noise after the bar's closing time.
"It's scary," said Brenda PARSONS, who lives in a nearby townhouse complex. "You don't need television to live in this neighbourhood. There's enough entertainment outside."
PARSONS said she thinks police should patrol the area more regularly on Friday and Saturday nights.
The parking lot is the same one in which Ryan VLAAD, 26, died after being punched in the head during an early morning brawl in July 2002.
Ward 3 Coun. Bernie MacDONALD said he's fielded complaints from neighbours who have had beer bottles thrown at their houses and on their property after 2 a.m. and have heard fights breaking out.
"This has been an ongoing thing with the residents," he said.
The concerns were passed on to police and MacDONALD thought the problems had been quelled until he heard about yesterday's shooting.
But MacDONALD said he thinks drugs are the "root evil" behind violence and shootings in the city this year.
"Until we cut the flow of drugs, we're going to see this and it's going to continue to rise," he said.
Police said they don't know whether drugs were involved in the fatal shooting.
Officers blocked off a large section of the strip mall, which also houses a Sport Mart, Goodwill, variety store, karate school and Tim Hortons.
A green Jeep and a black car also were taped off, though police wouldn't say why.
A shell casing and knife were visible at the scene.
A green camouflage hat, grey T-shirt, plastic beer cups, a cigarette pack and a lighter were strewn near what appeared to be a bloody stain near the black car.
Forensic detectives picked through the evidence and used a fire department aerial truck to photograph and videotape the lot.
An autopsy will be conducted today to determine the cause of death.

E.G.F. "Ted" SWEET
By Doug SWEET, Wednesday, September 7, 2005, Page A26
Mechanical engineer, inventor, pipe organist, husband, father, grandfather. Born June 3, 1924, in Brantford, Ontario Died March 22 in Burlington, Ontario, of complications from Alzheimer's disease, aged 80.
Rev. Don PARSONS glanced up in the middle of his graveside prayer. A four-engined, Second World War-vintage bomber droned loudly overhead. He paused.
"It's not everyone who gets a fly-past," he said quietly.
Indeed not. And although Ted would have preferred to hear a steam locomotive whistle as it chuffed along the tracks below the old Hamilton Cemetery on August 20, the heavy Lancaster would certainly do.
Something old, something mechanical, something big and solid. These were all qualities Ted appreciated.
A graduate of Brantford Collegiate Institute and the University of Toronto (where he joined the student air corps during the latter part of the war,) Ted was the only child of George SWEET and Muriel PHELPS. He began his own family in Brantford when he married Peggy DOWIE, a teacher who hailed from Grimsby, Ontario, in 1952. As chief engineer at the old Brantford Coach and Body truck-building firm, Ted was instrumental in the design and development of the upside-down pyramid style of sand spreader that is now a ubiquitous winter sight across the colder parts of North America.
After the company was sold in the early 1960s, he moved, with his wife and two children, Doug and Marnie, to Fergus, Ontario, where he worked for Beatty Bros., the large agricultural implement and appliance manufacturer. Tempted by the chance to participate in some pure engineering research, he moved in 1963 to Kingston, Ontario, to join a small team affiliated with Queen's University dedicated to the development of a "free-piston" engine. The loss of a grant for the project prompted yet another family move, this time to Ottawa, where Ted joined the Department of Industry, Trade and Commerce. Here, he helped design the massive Centennial caravan trucks that criss-crossed Canada in 1967.
But government wasn't Ted's cup of tea. He moved to Peterborough, Ontario, in 1966, where he joined De Laval, a division of the massive Swedish Alfa Laval company. Here, Ted worked in both engineering and sales capacities. After a move in the mid-1970s to the Oakville-Burlington area, a variety of other sales and engineering jobs followed. But by the mid-1980s, the early symptoms of the inexorable disease that would ultimately claim him began to make their presence felt and Ted retired to enjoy a bit of travel, some cycling and playing bridge for as long as he could.
An accomplished pianist and pipe organist, who filled in for vacationing organists at United Churches in Fergus and Peterborough, Ted adored the mathematical precision of Bach. Here, his ingenuity found another application. Unable to install a full pipe organ at home, he managed to rig an ancient pedal board to an old-fashioned pump-organ and employed a vintage Electrolux vacuum cleaner for suction. His dream of adding a second keyboard was, alas, unfulfilled.
Other inventions included an ingenious one-piece screwdriver built in such a way as to let you apply tremendous torque to a recalcitrant screw. Enough torque to break the screw, he discovered more than once. But the screwdriver, like everything else he built, was solid. It was later marketed as the Dura Drive.
We buried his ashes in an old family plot, next to his great-grandfather, Edmund Edmonds SWEET, a Methodist minister born in England in 1812. The old grey granite stone had stood for more than 120 years before being buffed and engraved once again. Solid as ever.
Doug SWEET is Ted's son.

A faithful wife, loving mother and grandmother. She adored children, especially her own, and raised her family to be more that they could be.

Catharine and Charlie left Cape Breton for work in Sudbury, Elliot Lake, Timmins, Kirkland Lake, and settled in Toronto. Kay and Charlie lived in Toronto but their hearts were in Cape Breton. They combined their talents and started dances, entertaining thousands over a period of five years. (Catharine on the piano and Charlie on the violin). Yet she still made time to work and raise her family. She will be greatly missed by her children Myrna MacLEAN (Roddie), Toronto, John MacLELLAN (Charlene), Welland, Rita LANDRY (Dr. Len), Milton, and Charles Jr. (Wendy), Toronto. Cherished grandmother of Alauna MacINNIS (Joe,) Tara, Joel REID (Julie), Erin BURNS (Michael), Bryden, Lennon, Zachary, Sullavan, Cailean, and Nathanie.
