Ed STEVENS marched his way into city's heart
Mr. STEVENS will be best remembered proudly marching in his bright red tunic and black and yellow trousers and hat at the head of his Owen Sound Collegiate and Vocational Institute band
By Bill HENRY. Sun Times Staff, Page A1
The much-loved founder of the old Owen Sound Collegiate and Vocational Institute Drum and Trumpet Band died Wednesday at the age of 94.
Ed STEVENS was a popular Owen Sound elementary school teacher and principal and high school English and history teacher from 1930 until he retired in 1969.
He was a cadet instructor, master of his Masonic lodge, active Division Street United Church member and chaired the Grey County Board of Education in the early 1970s.
But Mr. STEVENS will be best remembered proudly marching in his bright red tunic and black and yellow trousers and hat at the head of his Owen Sound Collegiate and Vocational Institute band, Friends, family and former band members said Thursday.
"It was a very, very popular organization and he was kind of a local hero and has been ever since," said Fred FURNESS, a former Owen Sound Collegiate and Vocational Institute principal and student at the school when the band was at its peak in the early 1950s.
"He's always been at the front of it. He's been the focus of it really and he's well known for it."
Mr. STEVENS started the band in 1946 after taking a job at Owen Sound Collegiate and Vocational Institute teaching English and history and leading the school cadets.
Although he had no musical training he believed the cadets should have a marching band and eventually taught himself percussion, his son Ted STEVENS said Thursday.
The band became a community fixture, marching in Santa Claus parades and playing on Remembrance Day and at other special events for many years.
The band reunited in 1981 after a long hiatus for the 125th Owen Sound Collegiate and Vocational Institute reunion and many members continued to perform regularly throughout the community over the next 11 or 12 years as the Owen Sound Collegiate and Vocational Institute Alumni Trumpet Band.
Members marched again behind Mr. STEVENS for the 145th school anniversary in 1996 and last performed together during the emotional farewell to the old Owen Sound Collegiate and Vocational Institute building when it closed in 1999.
"That was the wind up of it all," former member George JEFFERSON said "He was marching with the rest of us right up to the very end of it."
Since then, many of Mr. STEVENS' " Boys" have gathered annually with their former teacher, mentor and band leader on his birthday. Sixteen of them got together last summer and were delighted when Mr. STEVENS wore his band uniform to the party, George GREEN said.
He recalled Mr. STEVENS as a fair but demanding and inspiring leader.
"He was strict. He wasn't a laid-back fellow. If you did something wrong, he'd tell you about it. In the trumpet band he wanted perfection and that's what we strived for," GREEN said.
He also cared deeply about his students and looked after them well, including offering GREEN work after class and in summer.
"That's the kind of guy he was. He was more like a mentor to me and I think anybody that was in the band was the same. Ed looked after his boys and he's still looking after his boys."
That inspired unusual devotion among his students and band members, GREEN added.
Helen JOHNSTONE was a former student who said the man's 'basic decency' was an inspiration. He was an exemplary educator who made a difference in the community and will be much missed, she added.
"He was such a superb person. I always considered him my mentor," JOHNSTONE said.
They later served together Grey County school trustees and continued a lifelong Friendship. His love of books, literature and learning partly inspired her own similar interests, she said Thursday.
"He had a brilliant mind and a devilish sense of humour," JOHNSTONE said.
Ted STEVENS said education and learning were the principal interests throughout his father's long and active life. He cared about his students, wanted them to do well and kept in touch with many of them over the years.
Until just a few months ago Mr. STEVENS was corresponding with several Christian scholars as he explored his most recent interest, the history of Christianity, his son said.
He began teaching at Dufferin school in Owen Sound in 1930 and was principal at both Hillcrest and Victoria schools. He also taught at both Owen Sound Collegiate and Vocational Institute and West Hill Secondary School and was supervisor of academic training at Georgian College.
Edmund Campbell STEVENS died in Owen Sound Wednesday morning.
A memorial service was planned for 11 a.m. today at Division Street United Church.

Social advocate's legacy lives on
By April KEMICK, Free Press Reporter
Known for her contributions to affordable housing, Ormah GIBSON worked tirelessly to help Londoners in need.
GIBSON, who died May 25, will be remembered with a new downtown housing development named in her honour.
Her legacy also survives in the fond memories family members and others carry about GIBSON.
"She was always big on helping people that were somehow disadvantaged, whether it was women, low-income families or immigrants," daughter Ormah-Lee JACOBS said.
Born in Ottawa in 1925, GIBSON raised her three children, Hugh, Ormah-Lee and Laura, in London with husband Howard.
She obtained a master's degree in social work in Toronto in 1956.
After working as a social worker in Toronto and Saskatoon, GIBSON and her husband moved to London in 1958.
GIBSON helped found Homes Unlimited, Urban League of London, Youth Opportunities Unlimited, Youth Employment Counselling Services, Heritage London Foundation and London Community Resource Centre.
"She found ways to use her skill and training as a social worker to help other people," Howard said.
She was key to establishing the school of social work at King's University College and served as president of the Ontario Association of Professional Social Workers.
"She was an amazing lady," said London's housing director Louise STEVENS, adding it's fitting a new affordable housing development will be named after her.
"She was a really caring person," JACOBS said. "She always made you think of the other person's perspective."

Mary Pauline (McCANDLESS) WATERS drifted from sleep to eternity, whereupon she was found by her life-long friend, Mrs. Mary PIERCE and daughter Laurie. A dearer friend no one could deny. To you Aunt Mary, Laurie, Clifford, Edward, Michelle, and family, we are eternally grateful. You were the nucleus of her world, her family. She loved and cherished you all. Loving arms and outstretched hands will greet Mary in her new world; her wonderful and devoted parents Vila and Evan McCANDLESS, who adored her, her loving companion Sig, who loved and supported her in mid-life.

Saddened, missing her, and bearing the weight of great support are Mr. Paul SCHROEDER, loving husband to Emily, and Mr. Isaac FARBIASZ, loving husband to Paula Jane. In the blush of early adult life, Mary met and fell in love with a most handsome young man, Ray WATERS, who was to be her husband of many years. Together they walked the path of married and family life until, unfortunately, as with all things, The End Comes... Visitation was held at Denning Bros. Funeral Home, in Strathroy on Monday, January 3, from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. with funeral service taking place at the funeral home on Tuesday, January 4 at 11 a.m. Donations to the charity of your choice would be greatly appreciated by the family.

Championship win tempered by death of legendary coach
By Neil STEVENS, Monday, May 16, 2005, Page S3
Canadian Press
Toronto -- Les BARTLEY died of colon cancer yesterday, less than 24 hours after the team he coached to four National Lacrosse League championships won a fifth.
The resident of St. Catharines, Ontario, was 51. The family planned a private service for today.
"It's a deep loss," said Terry SANDERSON, the general manager and coach of the Toronto Rock. "He was so well respected by the Rock players he coached.
"It's an awful thing. It's such a brutal disease. This is a big loss."
The team presented a three-minute video tribute to BARTLEY before defeating the Arizona Sting 19-13 in front of a record National Lacrosse League crowd of 19,432 at the Air Canada Centre on Saturday. During the game, fans held up signs wishing BARTLEY well.
BARTLEY was a club vice-president this season, but was too ill to attend games. Captain Jim VELTMAN spoke from the heart about his former coach after the victory.
"He's not here right now and that breaks my heart," VELTMAN said. "It's hard for me to talk about.
"He's a very special man. When I saw that tribute, it was hard for me to keep it together. I have a lot of respect for that man."
BARTLEY coached Buffalo to three professional titles before taking over the new franchise. After his seventh pro title in 2003, he looked forward to going for another. But he was diagnosed with colon cancer later in the year and underwent operations. He had to relinquish his job behind the bench. He also was the club's general manager.
"He continued to have a deep interest in the team," SANDERSON said. "We had a very good rapport."
The league named the trophy it awards to the coach of the year the Les Bartley Trophy.
BARTLEY was a United Auto Workers contract negotiator in St. Catharines, and he helped the National Lacrosse League and the players association get together on a new collective agreement last fall. On May 9, the National Lacrosse League chose BARTLEY as the executive of the year.
Five of the National Lacrosse League's 10 head coaches this season played for BARTLEY: Bob Hamley (Arizona), Paul Day (Rochester), Darris Kilgour (Buffalo), Jamie Batley (Colorado) and Derek Keenan (Anaheim).
"A lot of coaches in the league today were influenced by Les," Day said after the announcement of the award. "You're not going to find anybody who had a more positive influence than he had on his teams and the guys who played for him."
BARTLEY coached Canada to international titles, including the Heritage Cup and the inaugural world indoor championship in 2003.
"He did a great job competing at the highest level," Gary GAIT, the National Lacrosse League career scoring leader, said of BARTLEY last week. "Les embodies the spirit of competition and sportsmanship in a coach. He's a model coach."
The Les' Fund Initiative was launched in conjunction with Lisa's Beads to raise money to fight cancer. Fans in most National Lacrosse League cities participate, selling beads in National Lacrosse League team colours and donating proceeds to local cancer societies, hospitals or research centres.

Four die in shooting at London family home
By Timothy APPLEBY, Tuesday, June 28, 2005, Page A7
A quiet residential street in downtown London, Ontario, exploded into violence early yesterday, a melee that ended in a shootout with police and a house fire that left four people dead and four police officers injured.
The house is owned by a long-distance trucker and his wife. Police were summoned by a 911 call placed by one of the family's three young children from a neighbour's house. Local media reported that the couple's nine-year-old daughter placed the call.
When police entered the house, the girl's mother and two siblings and the gunman were dead.
The province's Special Investigations Unit, which examines all deaths and serious injuries involving police, released no names. It was unclear who the gunman was.
Neighbours, however, confirmed that the modest Princess Avenue bungalow was occupied by John CZUBA, his wife and their children. The family emigrated from Poland several years ago, said Andrew KRALKA, who lives directly across the street.
The father was believed by local residents to have been driving through the United States when the family members were killed.
"It's all been a big shock for us; this is very tragic," Mr. KRALKA said.
Alerted at 2: 25 a.m. by the 911 call reporting an assault in progress, police arriving at the household were met by gunfire that struck two of the officers.
Police returned the fire, but authorities would not say whether the gunman, later found dead inside the house from a single gunshot wound, was killed by a police bullet or had committed suicide.
Both wounded officers were shot in the upper body but were wearing body armour, and both were released from hospital yesterday.
The couple also had a 13-year-old daughter and a five-year-old son.
London Police Constable Jeff ARBING would say only the 911 emergency call "came from a child, from a different location," adding that in 15 years of police service, "a homicide of this magnitude is something I haven't personally seen."
Neighbours recounted scenes of chaos. "I heard a quick 'Bang, bang, bang, bang' -- four shots. It sounded like firecrackers accompanied by a whole lot of police sirens," said David STEVENS, who was watching television at his home when the violence erupted across the street.
"Then there was a second series of shots, about five minutes later."
Amid scenes of shouted confusion, nearby residents retreated to their basements for safety.
During the 20-minute confrontation, a fire also broke out at the home, but it was unclear whether it stemmed from smoke grenades that tactical officers threw in, or another source. Two police officers were later treated in hospital for smoke inhalation.
"There was grey smoke just pouring out of the house," Mr. STEVENS said. Other neighbours described seeing police running down the street with children in their arms, carrying them toward waiting ambulances.
Both in their 40s, Mr. and Mrs. CZUBA owned the home and had lived there for several years.
Local residents described the family as courteous but introverted, spending time with other Polish-Canadians instead of their immediate neighbours.
Mr. CZUBA is often away and sometimes parks his rig on the street, Mr. KRALKA said.
"They don't really associate with people on the street," said another neighbour. "When we first moved here the kids were allowed to play with the other kids, but then they weren't, and the kids didn't go out any more.
"It makes me sad."
As to what triggered the violence, "That I'm not sure of," Constable ARBING said.
"That's an honest answer. I don't know what we have here."

VAN RIJN, Kiran
An athlete and scholar, Kiran died suddenly, of cardiac arrhythmia, while training for the sport he loved most - rowing - on Burnaby Lake, British Columbia, on September 21, 2005, at the age of 29. Kiran was the beloved only son of Carol and Dr. Theo VAN RIJN of Vancouver. He also leaves his devoted younger sister Catriana, of Vancouver and his grandmother Katherine (Stevens) HICKEY, of London, Ontario. He was predeceased by his grandparents Mary and Arie VAN RIJN, who adored Kiran. He never knew his maternal grandfather, Stewart STEVENS, who died before Kiran was born. He will be sorely missed by his aunts and uncles, Susan (VAN RIJN) and Duncan GOW of Kingston, Ontario, and Lin and Geoffrey STEVENS, of Cambridge, Ontario. A brilliant student on the cusp of life, Kiran graduated from St. George's School in Vancouver and earned his B.Sc. at the University of British Columbia, his B.A. at the University of Victoria and his master's degree at the University of Toronto, where he was working toward his Ph.D. in the history of science and technology. If academic life was to be Kiran's future, his passion was rowing, a sport in which he excelled and in which he competed at an elite level in Canada and abroad. Formerly a member of Canada's national rowing team, he was a finalist in the senior men's singles sculls at the Canadian Henley Regatta in Port Dalhousie, Ontario, this past summer. A memorial service will be held later at St. George's School. In lieu of flowers, a donation to a rowing scholarship in Kiran's name at St. George's (4175 W. 29th Avenue, Vancouver, British Columbia V6S 1V1) or to the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be greatly appreciated by the family.
