Time stood still in Stan's store
By Jane SIMS, Free Press Reporter
The more things changed in Exeter's north end, the more Stan FRAYNE stayed the same. And that was a good thing.
When he died suddenly at his general store January 25, at 82, Exeter and the surrounding area, 50 kilometres north of London, lost more than just a storekeeper with a big heart.
We lost a local hero.
For 51 years, there he was -- white apron tied around his waist, wire-rimmed glasses perched on his nose and stub of a cigar poised in his hand.
Stan was there when the north end was Guenther-Tuckey's Transport, Exeter Dairy and Mathers Motors. They made Kist pop at the beverage plant, and the explosion of industry and retail along Thames Road, the old Highway 83, was just a grand idea.
Stan was there when a big box was something he loaded groceries in, not his competition.
Stan was our grocer, our postmaster, our own version of Sam Drucker from television's Petticoat Junction. He was the unofficial mayor of Francistown, as Exeter was known as on the north side of the Ausable River.
He was a former president of the legion, and chairperson of the hospital board and recreation committee. And a generous friend.
"I never heard anybody say a bad word about father," said his son, David, who sounds like Stan and looks after the business.
Born in 1922 and raised on a farm, Stan was wired for retail. He started at an Exeter dry goods store at 16.
He served with the First Canadian Assault Troops and First Armoured Brigade in Italy at the time of the D-Day invasions.
By the end of the Second World War, he'd been in Italy, Belgium, Holland, France and Germany.
He came home, met Marion, his wife of 57 years -- with whom he had his children David and Janice -- and was back behind a counter.
He sold my dad his wedding shoes.
In 1954, he bought Beaupre's old store and began the Exeter institution.
David joked that Stan's uncle said not to spend any money on it. "It's either a historical site or a hysterical site," he said.
Time stood still in the store, where wall calendars had long yellowed and the shelving was there as long Stan was.
The little closet of a post office at the back served Hay Township for more than a century. And Stan was the postmaster for 35 years.
Customers, not decor, mattered to Stan. They wandered in and the phone rang all day. Stan went the extra mile.
"The difficult we do right away and the impossible takes 24 hours," was the motto, David said.
When the front screen door squeaked open, Stan was at your service. Milk, bread, cooked meat, bananas, papers, stamps -- all you needed. "You want some cackleberries, do you?" he'd say, which were eggs to Stan.
On warm summer days, he put fresh produce from local growers on the cement stoop.
In winter, he might joke: "It's 20 below Zurich," referring not to the Swiss city but the village west of Hensall.
To Stan, you were Young Bill, Young Bob or Young Joe. You could come in wearing your barn clothes and work boots. It didn't matter if you were new or had been in town for years.
A box of customers' unpaid bills was stashed away.
Stan would rather take a hit on a little bread and milk than know a family was hungry.
He had chocolate milk and penny candy on youth nights for the kids of Dutch immigrants from a nearby church.
Stan may be the only Exeter merchant with his death notice placed in a Jamaican newspaper.
For more than 30 years, he helped migrant farm workers from the Caribbean, stocking cornmeal, sardines, soups and spices, making sure they always felt welcome.
"They all loved Stan. But he's not going to be here," David said.
My family lived on a farm and my father worked odd shifts loading trucks at Guenther-Tuckey's. Stan put our groceries in our car in the firm's lot as my dad worked.
And Stan never forgot our Jersey Milk chocolate bars.
Last September, Stan had a heart attack. Around Christmas, he started to fail.
But he was well enough to help David's wife, Cathy, at the store a week before he died while David was off.
When David returned, the accounts were up to date and Stan had made a long list of Jamaican supplies.
That Tuesday night, he put his cigar down on the counter and unloaded a bundle of newspapers. And he died.
"He didn't suffer. He didn't complain," David said. "He died with his boots on."
In 1967, a customer wrote a poem that hung on a hand-made calendar in the store for years. "What would the north-end do without our Stan?"
All I know is, it won't be the same.

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."

OKE, Randy " Meat Head" (SIMS) (1954-2005)
On September 9, 2005, after bravely battling brain cancer for over a year, and with the tireless love and support of his wife and best friend, Sharon, Randy's struggle for life has ended peacefully at home. Randy loved family, Friends and the simple pleasures that each day of life afforded him. His unconditional love, compassion and acts of kindness were deeply felt by all that knew him. Randy had a love of football and the Pittsburgh Steelers and a passion for golf but his greatest joy was his work as a meat specialist for Price Chopper. He took great pride in his ability to train and nurture all those around him. His dedication was reflected in all the people that worked with him on the Price Chopper team. Although love could not save Randy from this terrible disease, it was his wish that in lieu of flowers and a funeral, that donations to the Canadian Brain Tumor Foundation, Research Dept, 620 Colborne Street, Suite 301, London, Ontario N6B 3R9, 519-642-7775, be made in his honour. Randy was surrounded by those who loved him most in his last days and in typical Randy style, never lost his sweetness or spontaneous sense of humour. Thank you to St. Joseph's Palliative Care Team and Victorian Order of Nurses for their caring, patience and compassion. A special thank you to all his Friends for the overwhelming support they have shown in the past year. Although taken from us far too soon, Randy was truly blessed in life and death.

Woman dies days after jail release
By Jane SIMS, Free Press Justice Reporter, Wed., October 5, 2005
A woman convicted of aggravated assault in connection with a bizarre homicide a year ago has died, days after her release from custody.
Tina MICKLOS, 35, was released from jail Thursday.
She died Sunday at her parents' London home of a possible drug overdose, London police said.
MICKLOS had finished the last 45 days of an 18-month sentence for aggravated assault in the case of Dennis GODMAIRE, 44, who was found dead in his Bathurst Street apartment on October 5, A manslaughter charge against her was dropped.
MICKLOS was one of three people with GODMAIRE during a drinking binge. A day later, GODMAIRE's body was found in his blood-spattered kitchen under an office chair, a 20-inch television set, a smashed oven door and a Canadian flag.
At her sentencing after pleading guilty, the court heard the binge turned violent after GODMAIRE made derogatory comments about MICKLOS and grabbed her shirt.
MICKLOS admitted she cut off GODMAIRE's pant legs, hit him in the head with a beer bottle and helped trash the kitchen.
Robert SMITH was sentenced in July to two years less a day for his part in the crime.
Another man is awaiting his day in court.
MICKLOS had a criminal record, but none of the convictions involved violence.
At her bail hearing last spring, she told court she was living on social assistance at the time of her arrest and suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder and depression.
She said she found jail "very traumatic" before she was released with her sister acting as surety.
At her preliminary hearing two months later, MICKLOS's bail was revoked and she was returned to custody, remaining there until her release.

KENNEY, " Bunny" Bernice Mabel (formerly SIMS)
Born August 21, 1922 - died, November 16, 2005
Bunny's six children, Gordon (Jo Ann), Janice (Dennis), Phyllis (Don), John (Diane), Paul (Peter), and Peter (Ora-Lee), and her grandchildren Jason, Stephen, Julie, Kristine, Spencer, Erienne, and her great granddaughter Jayden, and numerous nieces and nephews, wish to honour her passing. She was predeceased by her first husband Gordon SIMS in 1954 and by her second husband Ray KENNEY in 1994.
Mom was an incredibly strong person, and kept on going full steam even when life threw her challenges - of which there were many. She was born in Saskatchewan and until the day she died, she was proud of being from "Saskatchewan stock". Although she was a traditional 'mom' for most of her life, Mom fondly referred to her working career which was curtailed as more children were added to the family. She loved to travel, to entertain, and to have fun. I think she would be happy knowing that we will remember her as 'the life of the party'
Bunny was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 1990, but managed a valiant battle to live on, longer than most people. Anyone who knew her would not be surprised. One of her favourite phrases was "It's a good life, if you don't weaken". Bunny lived a good life. She had a wonderful sense of humour and a twinkle in her eye, something that even the disease couldn't erase.
The family feels incredibly lucky and eternally grateful to have had the kindness and support of everyone at Carewest Signal Pointe and Bethany Harvest Hills where Mom spent her final years. We have always loved the Mom who cared for her family and it was more than comforting to know that strangers to us, who cared for her so well when she finally was the one to need care, loved her too.
A Funeral Service will be held at Leyden's Funeral Home (304 18th Ave. S.W., Calgary, Alberta) on Saturday, November 19th at 1: 00 p.m. A private interment will follow. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to the Alzheimer's Society of Canada (201, 222-58 Ave. S.W. Calgary, Alberta T2H 2S3), a charity for children or animals. Arrangements entrusted to Leyden's Funeral Home, Reception and Cremation Centre.
