Man shot to death after visiting ailing mother
By Joe FRIESEN, Thursday, February 17, 2005 - Page A22
A 27-year-old man who police say was a kind, generous person with no criminal background was killed in an apartment stairwell after visiting his ailing mother.
Selvakumar SELLAIAH was shot to death late Tuesday night on the 17th floor of 275 Bleecker Street, an apartment building in the Sherbourne Avenue and Wellesley Street area.
"He's an innocent man," Detective Joel KULMATYCKI said.
Mr. SELLAIAH lived in the area and worked at a nearby restaurant.
Police believe robbery may have been the motive.
He is the city's ninth homicide victim of 2005.

Man shot dead visiting sick Mom
Young man who had 'no enemies' fatally shot in stairwell
Relatives and Friends grieve a man whom 'everybody liked'
By Betsy POWELL, Crime Reporter
He worked two jobs, visited his sick mother daily and had never been in trouble with the law.
And now police and 26-year-old Selvakumar SELLAIAH's grieving relatives and Friends are struggling to figure out why he was shot to death in the 17th floor stairwell of the St. Jamestown highrise where his mother and sister lived.
Residents called police around 11: 50 p.m. Tuesday to report hearing what sounded like a struggle and the sound of gunfire, homicide Det. Joel KULMATYCKI told a news conference yesterday at police headquarters. Police officers from 51 Division and emergency crews arrived within minutes and discovered SELLAIAH's body. An autopsy is scheduled for this morning.
Police are investigating whether robbery was a motive.
SELLAIAH moved to Toronto from Sri Lanka eight years ago and was a Canadian citizen. For almost two years, he had travelled across the city to work in the kitchen of Tony Pistola's, an Italian restaurant on Bloor Street W. near Royal York Rd., and recently started working in the morning at a pub on Bay St.
He lived in a bachelor apartment on Gerrard St. but was a regular visitor at the Bleecker St. building, where he came to look after his ailing mother. "That says what kind of man this is," KULMATYCKI said.
By mid-afternoon yesterday, two storeys below where the slaying occurred, his mother's 15th floor apartment had turned into a place of mourning packed with family and Friends. Some sobbed quietly, including SELLAIAH's 23-year-old sister Jayanthini. She sat slumped over on the edge of a bed, hands over her head and tears spilling onto a framed picture of her brother.
In the living room, family members tried to console SELLAIAH's tiny mother, Vadivambigh SELLAIAH, as she pounded her chest, wailed and rocked back and forth. His two brothers, Pathmakumar, 28, and Santhakumar, 25, looked dazed and shaken as they moved from room to room speaking quietly to visitors in the crowded flat filled with religious icons.
First cousin Guna NARMALAR said SELLAIAH has been a "big help" to the family, particularly since his father died three years ago. "He was friendly and had no bad habits," he said. "He has no enemies."
Co-worker Wara THGARAJAH, kitchen manager at Tony Pistola's, said he last saw SELLAIAH around 5 p.m. Tuesday. As he was leaving from his day shift, SELLAIAH was arriving. Fellow employees have told him SELLAIAH finished work in the kitchen around 10: 30, had a quick beer and left, though he wasn't exactly sure when.
Police are trying to figure out how SELLAIAH came to be in the building and don't believe he had visited his family that night.
Thgarajah called him a reliable, hard-working employee who had been working at the restaurant for about two years. "Everybody liked him, they never complain about him," he said, pausing to take a deep breath.
SELLAIAH was also recently hired to work in the kitchen of a Bay St. pub on the recommendation of a distant relative.
"He did what he was told. He had a lot of knowledge and he was very punctual, all the time opening the stores because he was the main guy opening," said the owner, who asked not to be identified.
"This morning it was unlike him not to show up... at 11: 30 I called the pub and nobody was here so I had to come down myself and open." He tracked down the family. "I called to find out if he was there and sure enough somebody answered and told me he was shot last night."
SELLAIAH was the city's ninth homicide victim.
A year ago, KULMATYCKI said he and partner Gary GIROUX investigated another homicide at a building just north of the Bleecker St. building where SELLAIAH was slain. "There is gunfire in that area and it's an unfortunate thing because the residents are sick and tired of these mutts coming in with guns."
Police are working with the Toronto Housing Authority to see if video surveillance can help solve the crime, he said.

I Remember -- Gordon SELLAR
By Gloria SELLAR, Saturday, May 7, 2005, Page S9
Gloria SELLAR of Kingston writes about her husband Brigadier General Gordon SELLAR, whose obituary appeared on December 17, 2004. She wrote the following in January of 1944 after returning from the Canadian Pacific Railway station in Calgary where she had gone to see then-Lieutenant SELLAR and a contingent of Calgary Highlanders off to war. He was 20; she was 17. They had been married for about a month.
I had been in my parents' big wooden bed many times in my young life -- early mornings; thunderstorms; earaches. To lie there now in the arms of my brand-new husband made me vaguely uncomfortable. No need -- the passion was spent and the serious lovemaking over. Fully clothed, we lay clinging to each other with a desperate tenderness as if somehow we could each keep forever a small part of the other.
This was the last afternoon. January ice on the bedroom window filled the darkening room with a grey light. The house was quiet my parents and grandmother had gone for the day to give us this last time alone. Baggage is at the station, the train goes at 8: 15 p.m. It's time to get up; no thought of supper now.
Hands run lovingly over the old labrador. They will not meet again. Oh God, how I love those square hands, strong hands but gentle enough to calm a half-wild horse. No smell of horse today just wool and shoe polish. He stands by the kitchen door, so young and handsome in the uniform covering that body I know every part of.
Suddenly, it's all a blur of khaki, tartan and engine steam soldiers move all around us. Those hands have brown leather gloves on them, now. Where are you my love? I can't feel you any more, only the brass buttons on your great coat pressing into my body as you hold me for the very last time.

This month comes with deep regret,
It brings back a day we cannot forget,
You left us so suddenly with no good-bye
But memories of you will never die.
May the winds of love blow softly
And whisper so you will hear,
That we will always love and miss you
And wish that you were here.

SELLORS, Roy (1913-2005)
On April 24, 2005, with his family at his bedside, Roy passed away, peacefully, at The Convalescent Home of Winnipeg. He was 91. A father, grandfather, great-grandfather, architect, professor and dean he was loved, admired and respected by his family, Friends, students and colleagues. He was predeceased in 2000 by Theresa (née GERVAIS,) his wife of 58 years; also by his brothers Harry, Ed and Dick. He is lovingly remembered by his 5 children: Paul (Libbie), John (Liz), Michael (Tess), Ed (Cheryl) and Liz (Richard HUTCHINGS;) his ten grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Roy was born in Winnipeg on June 8, 1913. He attended school in Winnipeg and graduated with the R.A.I.C. Gold Medal in Architecture at the University of Manitoba in 1936. A scholarship took him to Boston where he obtained his Masters Degree in Architecture at M.I.T. In 1941, Roy married Theresa (also from Winnipeg) in Fort Worth, Texas. He practiced Architecture in Chicago, Fort Worth, and Minneapolis before returning to Winnipeg, in 1948, to become a professor in the Faculty of Architecture at the University of Manitoba. He was Dean of Architecture from 1967 to 1974 and retired as Professor Emeritus in 1978. In addition to his academic career, Roy maintained a private architectural practice for over 30 years. He designed many buildings in Manitoba, specializing in churches, schools and private residences - including the family home on South Drive and a cottage at Lake of the Woods. He was a Registered Architect in the U.S. and Canada and a Fellow of both the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada and the Royal Society of Art in London, England, a Member of the Manitoba Association of Architects, the Royal Institute of British Architects and the American Institute of Architects. He contributed to many local and international architectural projects including those of the Commonwealth Association of Architects. He was Vice Chair of the Canadian Housing Design Council and a member of the U. of M. Architectural Advisory Committee. His extensive work on the R.A.I.C. education committee included the development of the current minimum Syllabus Program. Roy and Theresa were enthusiastic supporters of the U of M Faculty of Architecture, the R.W.B., M.T.C. and the W.S.O. We thank all who assisted with the care of our father in his later years especially his caregiver Tess Dominguez. Heartfelt thanks are extended to the Manitoba Home Care Program, International Nannies and Homecare, Dr. Goodhand, Victoria Hospital's Lifeline, Riverview Health Centre and, with particular gratitude, to the Convalescent Home for their exceptional care. In accordance with Dad's wishes, there will be a private family service. We ask that you remember Roy in your own way. Donations may be made in Roy's name to the John A. Russell Alumni Bursary Fund or the Faculty of Architecture Endowment Fund. Contact Susan Shanley (204) 474-6801.
