STALL, Gertrude (née BRAUNSTEIN)
Peacefully, on September 12, 2005, surrounded by her family, Gert passed away after a courageous battle with cancer. She was married to her loving husband of 48 years, Nathan STALL, who sadly predeceased her in 1986. Gertrude was born on May 17, 1917 to Annie and Leo BRAUNSTEIN. She had one brother, Morton, who died at age 16 in 1941. Gert and Nathan had 4 children, Shelley, Morton, Phyllis and Richard. They enjoyed living on McAdam Avenue, travelling the world, summers at Winnipeg Beach, dancing on the Moonlight train, golf, bridge and winters in Palm Springs. They were blessed with a loving and close group of Friends that lasted throughout Gert's lifetime. Gert was an accomplished pianist, golfer and bridge player. She attained her diploma from the Toronto Conservatory of Music (ATCM.) She was a life member of Hadassah-Wizo, and her Jewish heritage played a central role throughout her life. She was the heart of our Shabbat dinners, traditions and holidays. We will always remember her wonderful smile, her delicious meals, her emphasis on family gatherings and we will always cherish the times spent together. Gert will always be remembered with great love and much affection by her children, Aubie RUSEN, Phyllis and Marvin SHENKAROW, Richard STALL and Lisa BERGER; her grandchildren, Sara and Howie, Janis and Jeff, Marnie, Lori and Jeff, Michelle and Laurence, Morris and Rana, Nathan, Jacob, Benjamin, and Rosa her great-grandchildren, Benjamin, Hannah, Anna, Noah, Matthew, Natasha, Gillian, Sydney, Samuel, Tyler, Samantha and Abbie. Tragically, she was predeceased by two of her children, her son Morton in 1963, and her daughter Shelley RUSEN in May, 2005. Throughout her life, her dignity, strength and courage were an inspiration to her family. Her values will live in our hearts forever. The family greatly appreciates the care and support extended to her by her caregivers who enabled her to remain at home and enjoy the last years of her life. A special thank you to Dr. Jack RUSEN for his care and compassion. In addition, we are grateful to CancerCare Manitoba for their many acts of kindness.

And a heart that was purer than gold
And to those who knew him and loved him,

Because no more your face they see,
Are wrong -- for in our hearts you live.
And always will, in memory.

Pilot dies at Oshawa air show
Close friend was flying nearby before ultralight plane crashed
By Scott SIMMIE and Naomi CARNIOL, Staff Reporters
A highly experienced pilot -- and a well-liked man in the aviation community -- died in a crash yesterday at the Canadian Aviation Expo in Oshawa, the country's largest aviation show.
Doug ROGERSON was in the cockpit of his beloved SeaRey, a plane that had brought him endless joy since he purchased it in October 2002. The Air Canada pilot, who lived near Shelburne, was 58.
"I'm just devastated," said his close friend and fellow SeaRey owner, John DUNLOP. " Doug has been my friend and my buddy for 15 years. He's lived flying like I have and we shared our dream together. And it's ended in such a tragedy today."
The accident occurred at about 1: 40 p.m., as ROGERSON and DUNLOP were preparing for a fly-by at the air show. DUNLOP, a retired Air Canada pilot who has logged hundreds of flights with his own SeaRey, had no indication anything was amiss.
"He was flying on my wing when it happened. I wasn't even aware that he'd left my side until I learned of the accident," DUNLOP said last night while heading back to Shelburne to see ROGERSON's widow and children.
"My family is with me and they're devastated, too."
Few details about the cause of the accident were available yesterday. witnesses: said the two ultralights took off together and were heading west when ROGERSON's aircraft appeared to have trouble. It banked to the left, then the right, before going nose-down into a large pile of gravel next to the foundation of a housing complex.
A crowd quickly gathered.
"I had my hands on that plane two hours before it crashed," said Sandra FREER of Whitby. "The plane was on the tarmac and you could go look at it."
At this early stage of the investigation, police had little information they were able to share.
"Witnesses: reported the plane narrowly missed some homes in the area as it went down and came to rest on the dugout area of the home under construction," said Sgt. Paul McCURBIN of Durham Region police.
Anyone with information on the crash is asked to call investigators from the Transportation Safety Board of Canada at 905-771-7690. Organizers of the Canadian Aviation Expo could not be reached for comment.
Just two days earlier, ROGERSON spoke with the Toronto Star about his love for the aircraft, known by many as "The Orca Rey" because it was painted like a killer whale. He purchased the ultralight, which many build as a kit, as a used aircraft in Seattle.
With an infectious, friendly smile, he described the wonders the plane had brought him, especially on a trip earlier this year with DUNLOP and ROGERSON's son, who is also a pilot.
"We were down in Florida this spring. We flew right down the coast of Florida at 50 to 100 feet up," he said. "We saw wild pigs, even wild horses in northern Florida. My son is also a pilot... so it was kind of fun flying with him."
As a career pilot, ROGERSON was a stickler for details and safety. His craft was gleaming and the cockpit spotless. A pre-flight checklist, which he went over every time he took the aircraft up, was mounted on the instrument panel.
Though ultralight aircraft have grown safer over the years -- and the SeaRey has an excellent reputation and a wide following accidents still happen. A scan of Transport Canada's accident reports indicates that most ultralight crashes occur when the pilot is either not licensed to fly, has modified the aircraft, or is attempting manoeuvres for which the craft was not designed.
Given ROGERSON's background and reputation, it would be surprising if the investigation determines that pilot error was a factor.
On calm summer evenings, ROGERSON was particularly fond of taking his 80-horsepower SeaRey to Bellwood Lake. He was also looking forward to an annual "gaggle" of SeaRey enthusiasts that gathers each year on Georgian Bay. If that gathering goes ahead this summer, you can bet there will be some wonderful stories about ROGERSON -- and more than a few tears.
"Doug was a genuine guy and the best friend a guy could ever have," said DUNLOP, who distributes SeaRey kits in Canada.
You can find pictures of Doug ROGERSON, flying his distinctive and well-travelled Orca Rey, on the photo gallery at http: //www.seareycanada.com.

Body of boy, 12, found in basement
Family engulfed in pre-dawn horror
By Scott SIMMIE and Dale Anne FREED, Staff Reporters, Page A1
It was shortly before 3 a.m. yesterday when residents at the north end of Coady Ave. in Leslieville awoke to a horrifying sound: Guttural, almost feral, screams of shock and grief.
"Mommy, Mommy, Mommeeee," wailed a distraught girl in her teens, lying collapsed on the sidewalk. "No, Mommy, nooo!" she cried, lit both by the streetlight and the flashing red from the first police cruiser on the scene.
Inside 96 Coady Ave., the body of a 12-year-old boy had just been discovered in the basement, the body of her brother, Jamie CHAVEZ.
The cause of his death has not yet been determined. An autopsy yesterday was inconclusive.
"Information collected at this point has not given us a conclusive cause of death," coroner Dr. Trevor GILLMORE said last night.
"Further testing and investigation will be required."
Homicide detectives were monitoring the case pending definitive autopsy results, police spokesperson George CHRISTOPOULOS said last night.
Neighbour Louise COLE, who lives several houses down the block, said she heard the dead boy's older brother, Abel, 18, yell to his mother, Karen CHAVEZ, from the basement of 96 Coady: "Mom, I found him."
COLE said Abel told her he noticed a "bin" in the basement. "He gave it a kick and opened the lid and there was his brother."
The mother called police as soon as Abel found the body, COLE said. It was the second time she called police in the early-morning hours, COLE said. CHAVEZ had called police about 1: 30 a.m. when she found Jamie missing after she got home from work, COLE said. Police searched the house but found no trace of the boy, the neighbour said.
CHAVEZ had phoned COLE before she called police the first time, hoping he might be at her home, where he often visited. But she hadn't seen him.
When police left after finding nothing on the first call, COLE said, she told Abel to "go look in the (backyard) shed."
The shed was locked, and Abel went to the basement to find a screwdriver to break the lock. That's when he found his brother.
In addition to Abel, Jamie's sisters, Vanessa, 16, and Veronica, 14, two teenage cousins and an 18-year-old friend of Abel who has been living in the house for six months were also in the house Thursday night.
Another friend of Abel said he knew Jamie made it home from school. "I saw him at about 7 p.m. He was washing dishes in the kitchen," said the friend, Jermaine, who wouldn't give his last name. "He was by himself. They were in the living room. It was all cool.
"I left at about 7: 30 p.m. They were just eating chocolate cake."
CHAVEZ had separated from her husband, Alex, about two months ago and was working nights at a packaging and labelling factory to support her family, said COLE's husband, Ronald.
A mass for Jamie, a Grade 7 student at St. Joseph's Catholic school, was held yesterday at the neighbouring Catholic church. His classmates presented poems and memories, principal Anthony TACOMA said after the mass as grieving students walked by, some holding a remembrance poster about Jamie, one holding a candle. Grief counsellors, a social worker and a school psychologist were called in to help students and staff deal with the death, he said.
"He was a very well-liked boy (and) a hard-working student," said TACOMA, who had tossed a football with Jamie and his Friends the day before he died.
It was a long and difficult day on Coady Ave. yesterday.
The screams of the sister who had collapsed on the sidewalk became part of a disturbing chorus as at least two teenage boys and the mother, in utter panic, ran shrieking up and down the sidewalk.
Helter-skelter they ran, bolting frantically back and forth in any direction except toward the house from which they'd come. Within minutes, five police cars and two ambulances had arrived, along with a paramedic supervisor vehicle.
"My baby, my baby," screamed the mother with such anguish that one neighbour who heard her said she got goosebumps.
Officers quickly began cordoning off the area with yellow police tape, asking a freelance television cameraman who was videotaping on a porch across from the home to move to the far end of the one-way street.
One of the teen boys who'd been running finally stopped, exhausted and numb, and buried his head against an officer's shoulder. The policeman wrapped his arm around the boy, gently patting his back.
Another teen emerged from the neighbouring half of the semi-detached home.
"How are you doing tonight?" asked another officer, placing a hand on the boy's shoulder.
As night began to fall, police took out more yellow tape and began marking off the front yard of the home.
Asked if it was now a crime scene, an officer replied: "It always was."
Across the street, three teenage girls stood silently holding a photocopy of what appeared to be a school photo of Jamie.
"When I first heard the news I started bursting out crying," said Shaneika BECKFORD, 15. "It's really sad. I don't know why it had to happen.
"I need to know why he died. I just saw him yesterday."

Predeceased by beloved parents-in-law John Herbert and Cassie McNEILL. Lovingly remembered brother-in-law of Reverend W. Arnold and Helen McNEILL, Alan and Marion McNEILL, Margaret and Rev. Morry WOROZBYT and Ruth H. McNEILL. Fondly remembered by Aunt Bertha TORRANS. Special 'Uncle Claude' to many nieces, nephews and their spouses and families, and to generations of Sunday School students at Immanuel Baptist and Glen Major churches. Special friend and mentor to scores of long-time Friends at Immanuel and Glen Major. Dad lived a full life of accomplishment and service in the name of his Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. He was raised in North Toronto and Rosedale, he graduated with highest honours in 1934 from Northern Secondary. With university not an option in the heart of the Great Depression, Dad joined his father A.C. SIMMONDS in the family electrical and radio parts business, commencing work on July 2, 1934 in perhaps the most difficult economic circumstances in history. He augmented his knowledge of radio through night courses at Radio College of Canada. At the outbreak of the war, Dad became a member of the 48th Highlanders Reserve, and in 1942 took a leave of absence from business to join the Royal Canadian Corps of Signals, Research and Development Branch, where he served in Ottawa in the rank of Sergeant-Major through the end of the war in 1945. One of his favourite of the many stories he used to tell was of his Commanding Officer Colonel who asked him for a job in the dying days of the war. Despite the challenge of the time he entered business, together with his father and younger brother David, Dad successfully built A.C. Simmonds and Sons to become the leading Canadian national distributor of electrical parts and electronic components, hi-fi, and communications equipment throughout the 1940's, 50's, 60's and 70's. The company was continually on the leading edge of market response to changing technology and successfully introduced many new electronic products to Canada. In 1977, Dad and his brother David recognized the expanded opportunity that would be available from the division of the Company between their families in order to accommodate the entrepreneurial abilities and drive of the next generation. This was accomplished effective January 1, 1978 with the assumption by David, his family and associates of the Lenbrook Division of A.C. Simmonds and Sons. Incorporated at that time, Lenbrook Inc. went on to become the base for the creation of numerous successful businesses including Clearnet Inc. and Air I.Q. Under Dad's leadership, A.C. Simmonds & Sons Ltd. also achieved tremendous growth and success after 1977, and spawned many different entrepreneurial enterprises including Midland Canada, Dynacharge Inc., Viewstar Canada, and ClubLink Corporation. In 1987, the family, together with other business associates, achieved control of Glenayre Electronics Ltd. of Vancouver, and Dad became Chairman until the annual meeting after the successful sale of the company in 1989. Dad had many Electronic Industry involvements, honours and associations but perhaps the one of which he was most proud of was his acceptance as a charter member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, notwithstanding the fact that the Depression has robbed him of the opportunity to actually become a qualified engineer. He had the honour of Chairing the annual Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers conference on two separate occasions. Always open to technological advancement, he travelled extensively as a guest lecturer for International Business Machines Corporation at their worldwide Ideas seminars in the 1970's. His love of people and his common touch was evidenced by his practice of personally greeting every employee at their workstation after any absence from business for more than a week. Most importantly, in the tradition established by A.C. Simmonds, Dad always conducted business with a widely recognized level of integrity that was never in doubt. Dad was a faithful and very active member of Immanuel Baptist Church for almost 80 years, fulfilling many different roles over the years including Young Peoples leader, Sunday School teacher, Juniors leader, and Board of Management member. He was General Superintendent of the Sunday School for 15 years, and was a member of the Board of Deacons for more than 50 years, serving as Chairman for many years. At the time of his passing, he continued as an Honorary Life Deacon, and one of the three Trustees of the Church. Although Dad did not possess the level of musical talent prevalent in his family, he did have a deep and abiding love of the hymns of the church, and had an incredible ability for memorization of many of them in their entirety. From the time of the purchase in 1947 of the family summer retreat in the Township of Uxbridge, Dad's church involvement shifted during the summer months to his beloved Glen Major Church, affectionately known by the family as 'the little church'. For many years he served under Sunday School superintendents Mr. John HINGSTON and Mrs. Jenny JOHNSON as Adult Class teacher, and in the mid-fifties he began to assist his father A.C. SIMMONDS as a lay preacher, using the experience he developed as a member of the Soldiers and Airmen's Christian Association in Ottawa during the war. Upon the death of his father in 1966, Dad assumed full responsibility for the lay preaching and pastoral duties, and continued faithfully to lead the vibrant summer evening services so loved by many until his inability to do so five years ago. son David assumed responsibility for coordination of the services at that time. Most of Dad's Board involvements and commitments using his tremendous skill as a consensus builder were to a wide variety of Christian organizations, consistent with his strong belief in and love for both foreign and home missions work, and at the time of his passing he continued as an Honorary Life member of most of them. These included B.Y.U. (President 1949-50), Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship for 26 years. P (Chairman 1971-74), Ontario Pioneer Camp for 11 years (Chairman 1956-61), World Team (formerly R.B.M.U.) for 46 years, Yonge Street Mission for 44 years, Tyndale College and Seminary for 45 years (formerly O.B.C. / O.T.S., Chairman 1976-82), and Scripture Union for 50 years. In 1978 he joined the Boa
