PILON, Herbert
In memory of Herbert PILON, June 3, 2004.
God saw you getting tired,
When a cure was not to be,
So He closed His arms around you,
And whispered, "Come to Me",
In tears we saw you sinking,
We watched you fade away,
Our hearts were almost broken,
You fought so hard to stay,
But when we saw you sleeping,
So peacefully from pain,
We could not wish you back,
To suffer that again,
So treasure him, Lord,
In your garden of rest,
For here on earth he was,
One of the best.
Forever remembered by your wife Iola and family.

Plane, glider crashes kill four in Ontario
Canadian Press
Toronto -- Transport safety officials and provincial police are investigating two separate air crashes that killed four people.
Two men died around 5 p.m. Saturday when the Cessna airplane they were flying in crashed near Sudbury.
The pilot, Jim NICHOL, 68, and a passenger, Charles BREAULT, 30, from the Temiskaming Shores area were pronounced dead at the scene.
The two men were filming a family gathering from the air when the small plane suddenly plummeted to the ground, provincial police said yesterday.
An hour earlier, a single glider plane crashed into a farmer's field near Tottenham, northwest of Toronto, claiming the lives of two men.
John STANLEY, 43, of Newmarket, and Felix PILORUSSO, 56, of Toronto were pronounced dead at hospital.
The glider left the Great Lakes Gliding Club and was in the air for about 20 to 30 minutes before crashing, police said.
Highway 11 was closed for about two hours during the investigation, police said.
Federal transport investigators were trying to determine the cause of the crashes, police said.

Barrie father and son killed in plane crash
By Robin MacLENNAN, Monday, August 08, 2005
The surviving pilot involved in a deadly midair crash over Kempenfelt Bay Saturday afternoon didn't see the other plane until it was too late, says a Transportation Safety Board investigator.
“Both of the aircraft operate on visual flight rules,” said Rick PILSON. “Basically, you are operating on a see- and-be-seen basis.&rdquo
The two planes, both Cessna A185F models equipped with pontoons, collided in midair at about 3: 20 p.m.
One pilot was able to land safely and taxi his plane to shore, but the other spiralled out of control into the water.
Rescuers pulled the bodies of George “Bud” LEE, 71, and his 47-year-old son, Dan, both of Barrie, from the wreckage about 20-minutes after the crash.
A post-mortem Sunday showed both men died of severe trauma caused by the impact of the crash.
Larry MARTIN was childhood Friends with Dan, his brother, Tim, and sister, Sandra, who all attended Warnica Public School.
He said Dan was an avid competitive snowmobiler.
“We grew up together, but then you go your own directions. But, I know the family well,” MARTIN said, adding that his mother worked with Bud LEE at Kolmar Canada in Barrie until LEE retired a few weeks ago.
The plane was pulled out of the water late Saturday night and taken to the Currie Truck Centre north of Barrie where it will be examined by investigators today.
PILSON interviewed the surviving pilot. They say he took off from the Springwater Barrie Airpark on Saturday afternoon before heading out over the water, demonstrating his plane for a potential buyer who sat in the back seat. Another pilot was also on board.
Immediately before the crash, PILSON said the pilot, an experienced flyer with thousands of hours in the air, flew a circle around the bay, landed on the water and then took off again.
Around the same time, the LEEs' plane also took off from the water.
The planes collided about 250 feet in the air.
“The propeller struck the right rear float of the fatal plane,&rdquo PILSON said, adding the tail of the float plane was sheared off on impact.
The HILL- WHITSON family had been sailing off the Barrie shoreline for about an hour when the two low-flying planes caught their attention.
“I don't think they had any idea that they were in each other's airspace,” said Karen HILL- WHITSON. “It's hard to believe what we saw.&rdquo
Her 11-year-old son, Dalton, watched the planes collide, about 200 metres from their sailboat.
“At first I thought they were doing a trick or something,” he said. “They were getting so close and I thought, ‘Wow, what are they doing?' &rdquo
“It all happened so fast, and then all you could see were the pontoons in the water and the plane was upside down.&rdquo
After radioing for help, the family dropped the sail and hurried to the crash scene where more than a dozen boaters were trying to help.
“I saw one guy come up to the plane, and he didn't even stop his boat, he just jumped out into the water,” Karen said.
Derrick WAGNER was nearby on a Sea Doo when the float plane crashed.
He was in the water within minutes, working with other citizens to free the two men trapped inside.
“We tried, but we couldn't do anything,” WAGNER said. “We saw them, but we couldn't get to them.
“After about 15 minutes we had to give up because the fuel was all over the place. It was burning everyone.&rdquo
WAGNER returned to shore and was taken by ambulance to Royal Victoria Hospital where he was decontaminated and treated for a first-degree burn on his back.
“Everyone was trying to help,” he said. “People were throwing us masks, but they were all too small and the fuel was just too much.&rdquo
Firefighters, paramedics and police rushed to the scene, but the rescue efforts were hampered by the location of the crash.
“Something like this, we will definitely be responding as fast as possible,” said Barrie police Sgt. Dave GOODBRAND. “But you take the water, and the location, it always complicates the rescue effort when it happens on water because now everybody's got to get onto boats and get out there and that's not our primary mode of transportation.&rdquo
A Barrie police officer used a private citizen's boat to get to the crash site within minutes, and assist with the rescue effort.
An off-duty York Regional Police diver was also in the water helping.
Air ambulances stood by at the Southshore Community Centre, but were not used. One victim was dead at the scene, and the other was transported to Royal Victoria Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, GOODBRAND said.
Investigators say it's “close to a miracle” that three people on one of the planes walked away with just minor injuries. The pilot was treated at hospital for an injured knee.
“It's absolutely amazing,” PILSON said. “It's amazing, almost a miracle that these three people were able to walk away from this. It's amazing that the pilot was able to regain control and land the plane safely.
“He said at first it was difficult, but as the plane descended to the water, he was able to get control of it.&rdquo
After landing, the pilot taxied slowly to the dock at the Barrie marina where his boat was turned over to investigators.
Gus KRISTJANSSON was watching from Minet's Point Park.
“I heard a loud thump, but I don't know if that was the planes colliding or the one plane landing in the water,” he said. “When I looked, I saw the plane land and I followed it all the way to shore. He made a supurb landing and then took a slow, straight path to the dock.
“I can't believe he was able to land like that after crashing into another plane. It was a beautiful landing.&rdquo
While some witnesses: said it took too long for rescuers to reach the downed plane, KRISTJANSSON praised the response of emergency workers.
“I think the response here was amazing,” he said. “Within minutes there were firefighters and then paramedics and police.
“It was so quick, and there must have been about 60 people here all trying to help.&rdquo
Described as avid pilots, fishermen and snowmobilers, Bud and Dan LEE were long-time Barrie residents.
The are survived by wife and mother Barb, daughter and sister Sandy PRIEST, and son and brother Tim LEE. Bud was also grandfather to Colton and Jessi and brother to Jo GAREY and families. Visitation will be held at the Steckley-Gooderham Funeral Home, 201 Minet's Point Rd., on Tuesday from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Wednesday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Funeral services will be held in the chapel on Thursday, at 1 p.m.
