MacLELLAN, Charles (1919-2005)
Charles passed away March 16, 2005. Born Charles MacLELLAN August 28, 1919 to John Sandy and Catherine (MacINNIS) at Deepdale, Inverness County. The "kings" (as these MacLELLANs were known) were very musical. Each of the eleven children were talented musicians. Charlie was the seventh son and second youngest. He taught himself to read music at a young age and was a great sight reader and talented violinist. He spoke Gaelic fluently and always promoted Scottish tradition and hospitality. Charlie married Catharine TOMPKINS (deceased January 20, 2005) and they celebrated 60 years together. He served in the forces during the Second World War. He worked in the Inverness coal mines until their first daughter Myrna was born. They moved to Ontario where he worked in different mining companies. He settled in Toronto and joined the Iron Workers Local 727 and was honoured with a 50 years member award. Charlie continued his musical legacy in the city. He entertained Cape Bretoners at his dances for many years. An accomplished violinist, Charlie would entertain guests after the dance with Kaye accompanying him on the piano. Musicians would come to exchange tunes, laughs and stories. Charlie's generosity, talent, and sense of humour will always be remembered. The rhythm in his heart was Celtic and he instilled this in his children bringing them to Cape Breton each summer. They learnt to appreciate the Land, the heritage, the music and the cousins. His children Myrna, Jack, Rita, and Chuck thank him for that. Moran Taing! Thank You! Cremation has taken place and a Memorial Mass will be held at St. Patrick Church, McColl Street, Toronto. Reverend Joseph RUTA will celebrate the Mass at 10 a.m. Monday, March 21, 2005. A Mass of Thanksgiving celebrating the life of Charlie will be held at Stella Maris Church, Inverness, August 6.

Former Owen Sound mayor dies
Bob RUTHERFORD served the city for nearly 30 years
By Jonathon JACKSON, Saturday, March 05, 2005
Bob RUTHERFORD, whose career in municipal politics spanned nearly 30 years and included 16 years as Owen Sound's mayor, has died. He was 76.
Mayor Ruth LOVELL announced his death Friday during council's budget deliberations.
Mr. RUTHERFORD had been in Owen Sound hospital for a few weeks before he died there. The nature of his illness was not announced.
“I will certainly remember him as a very effective and personable mayor,” LOVELL said Friday. “He will be a person who is very missed.&rdquo
“He just loved this community,” said Coun. Arlene WRIGHT, who worked with Mr. RUTHERFORD at Rutherford Signs for 20 years.
“A true politician, dedicated,” summed up Gail NORRIS, who has worked for six Owen Sound mayors. “When he talked, people listened to him.&rdquo
Mr. RUTHERFORD was first elected to city council in 1962 and became mayor in 1965. He served in that position until being defeated in 1974 by Warren LOUGHEED. Mr. RUTHERFORD returned to office in 1976, ousting LOUGHEED in the next election.
He was mayor until 1982, when he was defeated largely due to his support for what was then a controversial plan to replace the city's downtown arena with what is now called the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre.
After the arena was condemned due to a structural problem, Mr. RUTHERFORD engineered a deal with A and P to build a new grocery store on the site of the old arena. He then helped push through an application which helped the new community centre qualify for an expiring grant program with only one day to spare.
But in a time of soaring interest rates and a poor economy, fears of higher taxes because of the Bayshore's cost resulted in Mr. RUTHERFORD's defeat and the election of Ovid JACKSON as mayor.
“The most wonderful thing that I ever got for the city... was the thing that killed me,” Mr. RUTHERFORD said on election night in 1982.
“I have no regrets. I would not have changed anything along the way.&rdquo
NORRIS, who still works in the mayor's office, recalls clearly a conversation she and Mr. RUTHERFORD had which she thinks says a lot about him.
“ ‘Gail, I'm going to vote that we build the Bayshore because the grants are available now and we need a new arena.' But he said, ‘I can tell you, I'll probably lose the election, ' ” she said. “What always amazed me was the day they opened the building and Bob was a guest, they gave him a standing ovation. You know, he had the vision.&rdquo
In 1985, as he had done in 1976, he challenged the man who had defeated him. JACKSON won re-election and Mr. RUTHERFORD vowed he was done with politics.
“I'm finished,” he said at the time. “I'll never run as a candidate again.&rdquo
It was a promise he didn't keep. He ran for a spot on city council in 1988, finished fifth in a field of 11 and served Owen Sound for three more years.
WRIGHT, who at one time was also Mr. RUTHERFORD's neighbour, said she always appreciated how he was a blue-collar worker who slipped comfortably into the mayor's chair.
“He was just an all-round guy and very well liked.&rdquo
He was president of the Association of Municipalities of Ontario in his final term on council, she noted, and he always kept abreast of goings-on at city hall. In fact, he dropped into city hall a year ago during budget deliberations.
NORRIS visited Mr. RUTHERFORD last Sunday, shortly after she'd heard he was in the hospital.
“We had a nice visit but I knew that he was extremely ill... But he still had the twinkle in his eye and the smiles.&rdquo
The arrival of some of Owen Sound's industrial plants also coincided with Mr. RUTHERFORD's terms of office, NORRIS added.
The family released a list of 18 clubs and boards to which Mr. RUTHERFORD belonged, ranging from the board of governors at Georgian College to the North Star Masonic Lodge to the Owen Sound Jaycees. His family declined to comment on Mr. RUTHERFORD's passing in a note sent from Breckenridge-Ashcroft Funeral Home.
In an interview on the eve of the 2000 municipal election, Mr. RUTHERFORD reflected on his political life.
“I had love for the city and I wanted to get involved,” said Mr. RUTHERFORD, who owned a downtown sign business for many years. “I was fortunate enough to be able to have the time, as my father and my stepbrother both said they'd run the shop while I worked at running the city.
“It's something you really have to love and enjoy, because you do take a lot of criticism. You're close to the people. They can pick up the phone and phone you and tell you what they think.&rdquo
He tried unsuccessfully to unseat both Progressive Conservative member of Parliament Gus MITGES and Liberal member of provincial parliament Eddie SARGENT. SARGENT had preceded him as mayor.
“I ran against Eddie a couple of times, but that's what you call ass-burning learning,” he said with a laugh.
Robert Edward RUTHERFORD is survived by his wife, Shirley J. RUTHERFORD (née EBY,) was father of Ross WARD and his wife Penny, Brent RUTHERFORD, Catherine and her husband Bob WEBBER and Rahnda YULE. He leaves eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, his brother Tim RUTHERFORD and his wife Violet. Predeceased by his brothers Paul, Jerry and Peter.
A private family service has been held. Friends are invited to a come-and-go reception in the Bay Room of the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, March 13. Donations to the Grey Bruce Regional Health Centre Foundation M.R.I. fund or to the Shriner's Hospital were what Mr. RUTHERFORD wished.

RUTHERFORD lifelong navy man
Donald Cameron RUTHERFORD had a full navy career and was a active advocate for it.
By Jonathan SHER, Free Press Reporter
Commander Donald Cameron RUTHERFORD would have been proud last week to see the Canadian Navy he tirelessly promoted send three ships to aid victims of hurricane Katrina.
Born in Sarnia in 1922, the longtime London resident held a litany of important naval posts in his 29-year career and then, in retirement, continued as a leading voice supporting the navy into his 80s.
RUTHERFORD, who died in October, enrolled in the Royal Canadian Navy in 1940 at age 18 and served during the Second World War aboard the British warships H.M.S. Hood, London, Duke of York and Woolston.
In 1943, he returned to Canada and served on the H.M.C.S. Ottawa and Prince Robert. After the war, RUTHERFORD held important positions at sea and ashore, including:
- Commanding officer of the H.M.C.S. St. Croix and the Haida, the latter now a national monument docked in Hamilton.
- Canadian joint staff, Washington, D.C.
- Royal Naval Staff College, Greenwich, England.
- Director of Naval Communications.
- Director of Naval Operational Requirements for Communications, Command and Control and Electronic Warfare Systems.
RUTHERFORD retired from the navy in 1968 but his work and service continued.
For the next 18 years, he was a manager at 3M Canada in London, all the while promoting the navy.
He served as a president of the Royal Canadian Naval Association and as national director of the Naval Officers Association of Canada. In those capacities, he mobilized those unhappy with inadequate naval funding, speaking forcefully at gatherings and leading e-mail campaigns.
"He didn't pull any punches and he did more than complain," said Michael HOARE, a former commanding officer of the naval reserve in H.M.C.S. Prevost in London.
RUTHERFORD believed he had a responsibility to his country and the navy to advocate for the service, and until his death, he used the Internet to press his campaign.
"He was really a naval hero," HOARE said.
RUTHERFORD also served as chairperson of the London division of the Canadian Corps of Commissionaires.
"He lived a full and memorable 84 years, which were characterized by a deep love for family, country and the navy," HOARE wrote in tribute.

By M.J. STONE, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, November 7, 2005, Page S8
Montreal -- He was a daring but lowly lieutenant who once gave orders to a brigadier-general. Charles Mecum WILLIAMS was a tank commander with the Sherbrooke Fusiliers in France, the Lowlands and Germany whose quiet, unwavering presence inspired those who fought beside him.
"Charles was a fearless leader whose courage had a greater effect on his men than officers of superior rank," said T. Garry GOULD, honorary Colonel of the Sherbrooke Hussars regiment.
The two men had been students at McGill University in Montreal. Both enlisted in the army in 1942 and met while training with the Canadian Armoured Corps at Camp Borden, Ontario
Mr. WILLIAMS, who had been taught to shoot at an early age by his father, quickly made his mark during target practice. At first, his sergeant instructor was unimpressed and told him to take better aim. As far as he could tell, Mr. WILLIAMS kept missing the target. "Sir, I couldn't miss that target," protested Mr. WILLIAMS.
The sergeant examined the target and discovered his student had repeatedly hit the bull's eye. As a consequence, Mr. WILLIAMS was immediately promoted to rifle instructor.
By the time they began their march across Normandy in June of 1944, he had swapped his rifle for a tank and was all about business. He was known for his ability to make split-second decisions under pressure, said Col. GOULD. One day, their tank came under fire from a German bazooka crew hidden in a ditch. "The tank's .75 millimetre gun refused to reload and its machine gun jammed, so Charlie, who was colour-blind and consequently was never fooled by camouflage, whipped out his .38 Webley revolver" and saved the day.
In August of 1944, Mr. WILLIAMS was part of Operation Totalize, an action during which Canadian, Scottish and Polish troops penetrated the fierce German defences of inland Normandy and advanced toward Falaise. He was wounded when concussion from a mortar round caused the tank hatch to slam closed on his hand. He refused to seek medical treatment, insisting that injured fingers were no excuse to the leave the battlefield, but when gangrene set in a few days later and spread up his arm, he was ordered back to a dressing station.
"A man of lesser courage would have sought medical attention immediately," said Mr. GOULD. His friend had been assigned to lead the squadron into battle, and anyone else would have used a mangled hand as good reason to turn over command.
Mr. WILLIAMS returned to England for surgery on his hand and was recalled to his regiment in December as a reconnaissance officer. One day in Holland, he found himself in the unusual situation of placing a brigadier-general under his command. He was commanding a brigade when Brigadier-General T.J. RUTHERFORD arrived from headquarters. Eager to see some real fighting, the brigadier asked the Sherbrooke's commanding officer if he could join a tank crew to the front lines for a day or two.
"None of the officers was too keen to volunteer, but Charlie remembered from his training days that the brigadier was an excellent gunner," said his son Dominick WILLIAMS. "He took the assignment, but only on the condition that RUTHERFORD agree to perform the duties of a trooper."
The tank rumbled off in the direction of the fighting with a brigadier for a gunner. Like the rest of the crew, he unquestioning took orders from Mr. WILLIAMS, who at that time held the rank of lieutenant. The hours ticked by and when the brigadier failed to return from the front, Headquarters became worried.
"When operations finally contacted Charlie's tank by radio, all protocol between the crew and the general had vanished," said Dominick WILLIAMS. " The radio operator was on such familiar terms with RUTHERFORD that he nudged the general in the ribs with his boots and said: 'Hey brig, you're wanted on the horn.' "
Overhearing the exchange, the situation proved too much for headquarters. The brigadier was recalled and so ended Mr. WILLIAMS' most unusual command.
In later fighting, Mr. WILLIAMS helped break through the Siegfried Line in Germany in February of 1945. He returned to Canada in 1946 and was discharged with the rank of captain.
After the war, Mr. WILLIAMS returned to McGill and in 1949 graduated as a mechanical engineer. First joining Consolidated Paper Corporation in Grand-Mere, Quebec, he moved to the United States and ended up at James River Paper Corporation in Richmond, Va.
He retired in 1987 and, with his wife, Jill, returned to Ontario.
Charles Mecum WILLIAMS was born on May 23, 1922, in New Jersey. He died of Parkinson's disease on September 15, 2005, in Niagara-on-the-Lake. He leaves his second wife, Jill, and his sons from his first marriage: Dominick, Andrew, Christopher and Sean.
