RICHENS, Bob
In loving memory of a wonderful husband and father, Bob RICHENS, who passed away April 12, 2001.
Someone I love is in Heaven Lord,
I think you'll know his name.
He went to you four years ago,
And left me in such pain.
I treasure the time I had with him,
I know he was only lent,
And I had to give him back to you,
Because he was from Heavens sent.
Loved and missed by wife Colleen and children Debbie and Steve, Nancy and Dave and Bobby.

ROY, Napolean (KING)
The entire Canadian farming and agribusiness community is mourning the loss of one of its best-known members. Napoleon ROY (KING,) 93, a pioneer in hybrid seed production, died Monday, May 16, 2005. Roy put Dover Township on the world map with his varied agribusiness ventures over nearly a century. They included establishment of the highly-successful King Grain Company, which provided employment for hundreds of Pain Court and Chatham-Kent area residents. The life-long Pain Court resident received numerous honours throughout his life. He was inducted into the Kent County Agricultural Hall of Fame in 1989, a year after receiving a Ministry of Agriculture and Food Centennial Award. Roy became an honourary life member of the Canadian Seed Trade Association in 1982. He was named Agriculturalist of the Year in 1978 by the Chatham and District Chamber of Commerce and received a Queen's Medal in 1977. Roy was recognized by the Quebec government in 1971 for outstanding service to the development of grain corn in that province and was later given an honourary life membership in the Canadian Seed Growers' Association. In 1975, Roy was presented with an Ontario Agricultural College Centennial Medal from the Ontario Agricultural College in Guelph for his contributions to the world of agriculture. In addition to being among the first to produce hybrid seed corn in Canada, Roy introduced the Pride Brand to Canada and marketed seed corn across Canada and the United States and developed good marketing ventures in France and Chile. The King organization was responsible for establishing a corn milling facility in Chatham. He promoted the sale of Canadian soybeans in Pacific Rim countries, farmed on Walpole and Saint Anne's Islands in the St. Clair River and is credited with promoting the use of certified seed and herbicides in Quebec. Roy is a past-president of the Chatham and District Chamber of Commerce, a former Rotarian and a Paul Harris Fellow, past-chairman of the St. Joseph's Hospital Advisory Board, a founding member of the St. Vincent de Paul Society and pastpresident of the Immaculate Conception Church Parish Council. He was once described by life-long friend, Joseph RICHER, as a "man with a dream and a mission. His dream - agriculture, his mission - a burning desire to be the best." RICHER said Roy had all of the qualities of a leader - a religious man with faith in himself, possessed confidence in himself and instilled it in those around him.
Roy was born in 1912 in Pain Court, the oldest in a family of 9 children. His parents were the late Henri ROY and the former Anna PINSONNEAULT. Roy's first wife, Pauline CARON, died in 1948. He is survived by his wife, Marguerite BRULE, 9 children, 15 grandchildren, 6 great grandchildren and 7 sisters. Predeceased by a brother, 2 brothers-in-law: and a sister-in-law. Resting at the Hinnegan-Peseski Funeral Home, 156 William St. S., Chatham from 2-4 p.m. and 6: 30-9 p.m. on Thursday, May 19, 2005. Mass of the Resurrection will be celebrated in Immaculate Conception Church in Pain Court on Friday, May 20, 2005 at 11 a.m. Parish prayers will be offered in the funeral home on Thursday at 3 p.m. followed by Le Club de L'Amitie prayers. Interment will take place in Immaculate Conception Church Cemetery, Pain Court. Donations to Immaculate Conception Church Restoration Fund or the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be welcomed by the family. Online condolences for the family can be left at www.peseski.com

RICHER, Harry (October 29, 1922-August 26, 2004)
God saw you getting tired
But it was not to be
So he closed his arms around you
And whispered "Come to me".
A golden heart stopped beating
Your gentle hands at rest
Of all the dad's and husbands in the world
We truly had the best.
We often lay awake at night
When the world is fast asleep
And take a walk down memory lane
with tears upon our cheeks.
The years we had with you
Are worth all their weight in gold
The joy and laughter you gave us
Are ours to have and hold.
Please keep your arms around him Lord
And give him special care
Make up for all he suffered
That seemed to us unfair.
So many times we've needed you
So many times we've cried
If love could have saved you
You never would have died.
Very much loved and sadly missed, Wife Gert, Daughters Donna, Joy and families.

BURROUGHS, Huguette
After an inspiring life of devotion, courage and compassion, Huguette died peacefully surrounded by her family and Friends at the Ottawa Hospital (General Campus), on Thursday, March 31, 2005. She was the daughter of Eugène BURROUGHS and Aurare BRABANT, dear sister of Charles BURROUGHS (Ginette) of Ottawa and Yvan BURROUGHS of l'Orignal, beloved aunt of Line (RICHER) and great aunt of Samuel and Vincent RICHER all of Ottawa. Huguette valued life and the talents with which she was gifted and she also accepted with serenity and resolve the great physical challenges which she had to overcome. Despite total blindness, she was for almost 25 years the journalist who put out the entire weekly edition of her community's French language weekly, Le Journal de Cornwall. This followed upon many years as a journalist with the then French language radio station, CFML. She was a passionate Franco-Ontarian who cherished her language and her heritage. She always sought to honour and enrich that heritage. In this spirit she was instrumental in establishing Cornwall's French language community radio station, CHOD-FM. She was a devoted member of the governing bodies of many organizations including the Cornwall Community Hospital, the Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Legal Clinic and Big Brothers and Big Sisters. Her many achievements were recognized with a number of provincial and national awards including the Order of Ontario, the highest honour which our province can bestow, and l'Ordre des francophones d'Amérique. Her crowning achievement was to be honoured with the trust of her beloved community and elected as City Councillor, despite suffering an amputation and requiring dialysis. She carried out her role conscientiously and lovingly. Huguette had an abiding and deep faith and a Mass of Christian Burial officiated by her good friend Reverend René DUBÉ will be celebrated on Monday, April 4, 2005 in the Nativity Co-Cathedral at 2 p.m., followed by cremation. The family will welcome her Friends from 2 to 5 p.m. and from 7 to 10 p.m. Sunday, April 3 and from 11 a.m. until 1: 30 p.m. on Monday, April 4 at the Lahaie and Sullivan Cornwall Funeral Homes, Each Branch, 614 First Street East (613-933-2841). As expressions of sympathy, donations in her memory to the Cornwall Commmunity Hospital Foundation, the great endeavour of the community which she loved dearly and which loved her in return, would be deeply appreciated.

HOLIFF, Saul Israel
Saul Israel, on Thursday, March 17th, 2005 in his 80th year, son of the late Joel and Esther HOLIFF. Unwell in recent years, Saul died at home peacefully and with dignity, at a time of his own choosing. His motto for years, and right up to the end, was "Living well is the best revenge" and he did his best to fulfill that philosophy. Saul loved fine food and wines, gardening, music, travel and movies, but no more than he loved their little 10-year-old Tabby, Brio. Born June 22nd 1925 in London, Ontario, Saul said he somehow made it through two years at London's Central Collegiate before leaving at the age of 15 to more or less take on the world. Before and during high school he delivered The London Free Press, The London Echo, sold subscriptions to Liberty Magazine, peddled fruit from door to door in the summer, and in his spare time together with his brother collected large quantities of used newspapers for sale to Leff's scrap yard. As young entrepreneurs, they also operated Holiff Brothers Fruit and Vegetables. During turbulent years before and after World War 2 Saul worked as a truck driver, a puddler on the night shift of the Steel Co. of Canada, a traveling salesman and a self-employed clothing merchant. During the war, although totally unfamiliar with guns of any shape or size, he "managed to graduate as a rear air gunner in the Royal Canadian Air Force without causing too much damage to (his) own side". In the'50's Saul appeared at London's Grand Theatre in a variety of acting roles. Later he was a partner in Saul's Square Boy drive-in restaurant, innovative pioneers in their field. In the ensuing years, with offices in Los Angeles, London and Nashville, he had a successful career as a concert promoter and personal manager of Canadian and American recording and television artists including Johnny Cash, the Statler Brothers Quartet, Tommy Hunter and Debbie Lori Kaye. Retiring in his late forties, Saul and his family, soon after, moved to Victoria, British Columbia. Always having been a voracious reader. Saul fulfilled a lifelong dream of returning to school as a mature student. After a few years at the University of Victoria preceded by some time spent at the University of Western Ontario, he "somehow, in spite of many pitfalls, succeeded in graduating" with a B.A. in history. However, he didn't let his studies interfere with his love of Sports -- tennis in particular -- "but was better at watching than at playing." A few years ago they moved on again, to a condo set in idyllic surrounding in Nanaimo, British Columbia. Saul leaves Barbara, his "soul mate, best friend and muse" of over forty years, and two sons, Jonathan of Los Angeles and Joshua (Kirsti) of Whitehorse, granddaughter Olive CASSIDY, his brother Morris (Jan) of Scottsdale, Arizona, as well as nephews Larry PAIKIN (Marnie) of Hamilton, David (Leah) of Las Vegas and Gary (Janet) of Toronto, and nieces Myra RICHMAN of Scottsdale, Arizona and Lori (Tom) of Burlington, Vermont. Saul and his family would want Doctors Peter Rechnitzer, Bud Faulkner, Dennis Morgan, Barry Bjorgaard and Henk Reems to know that all their patience, humour and good doctoring over the years has been greatly appreciated. At Saul's request, there will be no funeral service. Cremation was handled by the Vancouver Island Memorial Society. Telford's Mid-Island Memorial Services. 1-866-503-5553

Saul leaves Barbara, his "soulmate, best friend and muse" of over forty years, and two sons, Jonathan of Los Angeles and Joshua (Kirsti) of Whitehorse, granddaughter Olive CASSIDY; his brother Morris (Jan) of Scottsdale, Arizona, as well as nephews Larry PAIKIN (Marnie) of Hamilton, David (Leah) of Las Vegas and Gary (Janet) of Toronto; and nieces Myra RICHMAN of Scottsdale, Arizona and Lori (Tom) of Burlington, Vermont.
Saul and his family would want Doctors Peter Rechnitzer, Bud Faulkner, Dennis Morgan, Barry Bjorgaard and Henk Reems to know that all their patience, humour and good doctoring over the years has been greatly appreciated.
At Saul's request, there will be no funeral service. Cremation was handled by the Vancouver Island Memorial Society. Telford's Mid-Island Memorial Services 1-866-503-5553

PENSA 'made us all better'
The Londoner, who championed social causes for decades, lost her battle with cancer.
By Randy RICHMOND, Free Press Reporter
London's social conscience is a little quieter today. Elaine PENSA, a passionate and strong voice for the poor, the sick and the discriminated against, died at home yesterday after a two-year battle with ovarian cancer.
She was 68.
Family, Friends and countless others she touched were left feeling both broken-hearted and lucky they knew her.
"It has been a horrible day," said friend Janet STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, a managing partner at Lerners law firm.
"But she has left us all with wonderful memories. She made us all better than we were."
STEWARD/STEWART/STUART and PENSA's paths crossed in the early 1980s and became permanently entwined with the creation of the legendary London Ladies Literary League, a group of 11 women who met once a month to talk about books, family and, thanks to PENSA, helping the community.
"We talked about books for about 20 seconds," STEWARD/STEWART/STUART recalled with a laugh. "Then we talked about family and everything else.
"She was our radical activist."
The list of initiatives PENSA championed spanned decades and issues, from London Lawyers Feed the Hungry to a committee that established the city's anti-hate group.
"She was the conscience for a lot of people," said Deb MATTHEWS, a close friend and London-North-Centre Liberal member of provincial parliament.
"She really cared about social justice, about inequality, racial or social inequality. She felt these issues in her heart and in her soul. She had a very generous spirit and she wasn't hesitant to make sure people heard about it."
PENSA went far beyond talking about the need for change. She started projects and followed each to completion, said Laila NORMAN.
The two women helped found London's Association for the Elimination of Hate.
"She was just a marvellous woman," NORMAN said. "I am still broken up about it."
PENSA firmly believed everyone, regardless of colour, creed or sexual orientation, had the right to live in safety, said Debbie LEE, the association's executive director.
"Elaine was amazing. She had so much spirit that it was like she was a young girl in a woman's body," LEE said.
PENSA's sense of social justice also led her into politics. She ran unsuccessfully for the Ontario Liberals, but led successful campaigns for Joe SWAN for city council and board of control.
"I couldn't have had a better friend and mentor," SWAN said. "She took me with all my warts, like she did with everyone. My God, we're going to miss her."
After being diagnosed with ovarian cancer and recognizing a lack of awareness about the deadly illness, PENSA threw herself into organizing the Run for Ovarian Cancer.
"She gave cancer an unbelievable battle," NORMAN said.
Despite her commitments to the community, family always came first, NORMAN said.
"They are a very loving, caring family."
In a recent Free Press interview, husband Claude PENSA described his perfect day as "sitting on the porch at our cottage with Elaine, family, Friends..."
"He will miss her tremendously," MATTHEWS said.
Besides her husband of 46 years, PENSA leaves four children and nine grandchildren.
Visitation takes place Monday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Donohue Funeral Home at 326 Waterloo St. in London.
The funeral mass will be held at St. Peter's Basilica, 196 Dufferin Ave. at 10 a.m. Tuesday.

Behind-the-scenes activist left legacy of advances
By Randy RICHMOND, Free Press Reporter
A cross-section of London's civic life -- politicians, bureaucrats, journalists and activists -- will crowd into a London bar tomorrow to celebrate the life of a longtime, behind-the-scenes mover and shaker. Mary ZELINSKI, who died January 31 at 58, was many things to many people.
To reporters, ZELINSKI was a sharp-eyed critic of local politics with great news tips and gossip.
To entrepreneurs and community groups, she was a valuable ally in the federal government.
To politicians, she could be either a pain in the butt or a best friend.
"She has done a lot of good for the community," although few ordinary Londoners know it, said longtime friend Terry FENN.
The two became Friends in the early 1970s when FENN was running for school board trustee.
He was on stage at an all-candidates meeting and ZELINSKI was a community activist in Northbrae.
"She proceeded to chew up a candidate pretty good. I was the next speaker and I was sweating bullets."
But FENN passed ZELINSKI's credibility test and the two became Friends.
The pair realized half the city was not represented on the school board in citywide elections and over the objections of many in the old guard, got the ward system in place.
ZELINSKI worked for the federal government's Community Futures program, helping community groups get funding for their projects.
"We were helping people get back to work. Mary was a great collaborator. She leveraged money with other partners, municipal governments and other federal departments, school boards," FENN said.
In the 1990s, ZELINSKI moved to Industry Canada, providing loans to new business projects, including Chatham-Kent's ethanol-from-corn plant.
"Middlesex County owes her so much," county chief administrative officer Bill RAYBURN said. "Yet probably very few people knew her name."
ZELINSKI approached RAYBURN on his first day on the job to say Middlesex wasn't getting its share of business loans.
"Mary was the kind of person when she recognized an injustice in the system, she would work with people to make amends."
ZELINSKI worked with everyone, regardless of political stripe, trading information with reporters and politicians alike, seeming to know exactly whom to contact to get things done, said friend Anne SMITH.
"She saw the big picture," FENN said. "If you wanted to do something that wasn't right, she wouldn't let you get away with it."
ZELINSKI's health suffered the past few years, but she remained a keen critic of city hall affairs, fighting most recently over London's loose heritage policies.
"She's up in heaven now, doing her knitting and shaking her head at all the politicians everywhere, RAYBURN said.
ZELINSKI leaves her husband, Peter, and son, John.
A memorial service will be held tomorrow at 3 p.m. at Chaucer's, 122 Carling St.

Police probe biker's death
By Randy RICHMOND and Jane SIMS, Free Press Reporters
A well-known member of the Hells Angels in London and a constant thorn in the side of police has died, apparently hanged in a shed at his Melbourne home. Marty ZAGER, 39, was found dead early Saturday morning in an outbuilding at the south end of his property on Melbourne Road.
ZAGER was "a dominant personality in the London area as far as the Hells Angels," Det. Staff Sgt. Scott Mills of the provincial Ontario Provincial Police biker enforcement unit said yesterday.
"He's been a person of interest of the biker enforcement unit for years."
Police would not confirm the details of ZAGER's death yesterday, but several sources said he died from hanging.
Middlesex Ontario Provincial Police Const. Doug GRAHAM said police are investigating ZAGER's sudden death.
A family member found him before calling 911 at 12: 08 a.m. Saturday, police said.
An autopsy was ordered.
ZAGER had helped run the Beef Baron strip club in London, then owned several body-rub parlours in the area.
After brushes with the law and city council over the body rub parlours, ZAGER left that business and focused on his tattoo parlours, Hardcore Tattoos and Piercings, in London and Port Stanley.
ZAGER joined the Hells Angels a few years ago, rising in the ranks as the local club struggled to exist. He was apparently a good friend to London president Bill MILLER and some sources suggest ZAGER ran the club at times.
Meanwhile, he maintained a sprawling family home shared with his wife, Veronica, three children, several dogs, cats and an iguana.
"We're just like everybody else," Veronica ZAGER told The Free Press two years ago.
Police accused the two of laundering millions of dollars from their businesses to the Hells Angels.
"We wish somebody would tell me where it is so we could at least enjoy it," Veronica ZAGER said at the time.
She could not be reached for comment yesterday.
The door to the two-storey, brown brick home was answered by a friend who said little except that the family was hurting.
An employee at Hard Core Tattoo on Richmond Street would say only the business would continue.
Hells Angels spokesperson Donny PETERSON in Toronto wouldn't comment on ZAGER's death and no one answered the door at the London clubhouse.
ZAGER was never one to shy away from the public eye.
He and his wife filed a $3-million lawsuit against London, provincial and federal police in 2003, claiming police negligence, malicious prosecution and the breach of their Charter rights over drug and conspiracy charges that were eventually withdrawn.
ZAGER also refused to stop wearing his vest emblazoned with the Hells Angels emblem, despite the legal troubles it brought him.
Neighbours on Melbourne Road described ZAGER yesterday as a pleasant, helpful man.
"He was one of the best neighbours I ever had," said Fred ALBERT, who lived across from ZAGER.
"Before, we used to have break-ins here. When he moved in, they just stopped."
ZAGER often would come over and plow out ALBERT's lane without being asked and without asking for anything in return, he said.
Another neighbour said ZAGER often had parties with bikers at his house, but nothing bad ever happened.
"I am very surprised," John ALBERT said.
"Nothing ever happened there."

Troubled husband faces charge in Cambodian woman's slaying
By Randy RICHMOND, Free Press Reporter
Tired of the voices in his head, Ngeab KHIN was heading to his homeland of Cambodia tomorrow to get spiritual help.
His wife, Yorn MEY, was travelling with him. After surviving civil war in Cambodia, refugee camps and a bout with throat cancer seven months ago, she was willing to help her husband on his journey.
Instead, yesterday, KHIN, 49, was charged with second-degree murder in the death of his wife MEY, 49.
And their two sons are left with a family torn apart.
"I don't have a mom or dad now. I don't know what to do," said son Soeun KHIN, 23, yesterday.
"They got their luggage packed and by the door and this is what happened. My mom survived war and throat cancer and now this."
It was the second slaying in London within 24 hours.
While the deaths of four people Monday on Princess Avenue drew hordes of media and police, only a line of yellow police tape and two cruisers on a quiet stretch of Chippewa Drive bore witness to yesterday's slaying.
Police were called about 12: 05 a.m. to 1081 Chippewa Dr. and found MEY dead.
There were signs of trauma to her body, but the cause of her death hasn't been determined, said London police Const. Jeff ARBING.
Police stressed they had not recorded any other incidents of domestic violence at the address before.
But they would release little other information until a post-mortem expected today.
Neighbours could reveal little about the family or shed light on what happened.
"To me they were just a nice old couple," said Laura GILLIAN, who lives across the road.
But behind the trim shrubs and inside the tidy-looking grey brick bungalow, there had been signs of trouble.
"He just started to get some different ideas in his mind," said the family's minister, Reverend Mom PEIN of the New Apostolic Church in London.
PEIN gathered family members at his home yesterday. While one son, Samnang, 20, went to identify his mother's body, Soeun tried to understand what went wrong.
"It happened after my grandmother, his mother, died, two or three years ago," Soeun said. "He (my dad) started becoming delusional. He believed he was a prophet."
The family went along until things got out of hand.
They tried to get KHIN help, but he refused. He believed he would die if he got medical help, Soeun said.
The family went to police, who suggested they find a doctor. They called an ambulance to the door about a year ago, but KHIN refused to go.
"He used to hide the knives because he thought we were going to hurt him. He thought he was the okay one and we were all wrong," Soeun said.
The family had fled Cambodia's civil war in the late 1970s and ended up in Thailand, where Soeun was born.
They arrived in Canada about 20 years ago. His mother and father found jobs at Cuddy Food Products, though both were on compensation because of physical injuries, Soeun said.
In the past few months, the stress of his father's mental illness was getting worse, Soeun said.
Monday evening, KHIN got up to work the overnight shift at Lamko Tool and Mould in London and saw his father. "He was just sitting in his chair. That's all he's been doing for the past couple of months."
His father figured he could get help in Cambodia for the voices in his head.
Soeun's wife sat on PEIN's front porch yesterday and, between sobs, called Friends in Cambodia who had been expecting to meet her in-laws at the airport.
"Her own mother died three years ago. Three months later, we got married and she got a new mom," Soeun said.
"They were very close. Now she is going through this again."
His wife was the first to learn about the slaying, coming home from work yesterday morning to see police tape outside the house.
She called Soeun at work and he rushed home.
"It just blew me away. He is a really good dad."
The couple lived in the home with their parents and younger brother.
"I don't know if I can stay after what happened," Soeun said.
