Ontario Provincial Police officer dies while refereeing game
By April KEMICK, Free Press Reporter, Sat., December 17, 2005
A charity hockey game between Ontario Provincial Police officers and Glencoe District high school students took a tragic turn yesterday when a veteran officer refereeing the game collapsed and later died.
Const. Dale WAGAR, 55, of Middlesex Ontario Provincial Police, was refereeing the game at Glencoe Arena when he left the ice feeling ill.
The 31-year Ontario Provincial Police veteran collapsed in the dressing room about 2 p.m.
"He was a wonderful man," Sgt. Dave REKTOR of Western Region Ontario Provincial Police said last night.
"He was just full of life and such a great guy... Dale was loved by all of us."
WAGAR, who is survived by his wife, was pronounced dead at Four Counties Hospital in Newbury. It's unclear exactly what caused his sudden death.
Colleagues of the dedicated officer -- some of whom responded to the 911 call for medical assistance at the arena -- were stunned by the sudden death of one of their own, REKTOR said.
"Everybody is in shock," he said.
"They're devastated. Some of them are in tears, some of them are very angry.
"They're dealing with a whole host of emotions that people go through when there's a death of a loved one."
WAGAR, who joined the Ontario Provincial Police in 1974 and served at the Downsview and Kingston detachments before coming to Middlesex, was an "exemplary officer who will be greatly missed by everyone his life touched," said Insp. John STEPHENS, commander of the Middlesex detachment.
"This is a huge loss for the Ontario Provincial Police and the communities we serve," he said.
WAGAR, a Londoner, was a long-serving hockey referee who "died doing everything he loved doing," STEPHENS said.
In a 2001 Free Press column, WAGAR described his affinity for hockey and his reasons for donning the stripes.
"A referee is only there for one reason and it surely isn't the money," he wrote. "They do it for the love of the game."
In his long policing career, WAGAR was a member of the prestigious Golden Helmets precision motorcycle team and served in drug enforcement.
WAGAR also helped with the V.I.P. security unit and assisted when the Queen, the Queen Mother and Pope John Paul II visited Canada.
"He was a heck of a guy," REKTOR said.
He said it's not often officers have to respond to an emergency call involving a colleague, but when it happens it's "a terrible, terrible thing."
"Some people forget that we're humans, too," he said.
The game between the Glencoe students and Western Region Ontario Provincial Police officers was a benefit for the Glencoe Food Bank, REKTOR said.
Play was halted after WAGAR collapsed, he said.

Barrie father and son killed in plane crash
By Robin MacLENNAN, Monday, August 08, 2005
The surviving pilot involved in a deadly midair crash over Kempenfelt Bay Saturday afternoon didn't see the other plane until it was too late, says a Transportation Safety Board investigator.
“Both of the aircraft operate on visual flight rules,” said Rick PILSON. “Basically, you are operating on a see- and-be-seen basis.&rdquo
The two planes, both Cessna A185F models equipped with pontoons, collided in midair at about 3: 20 p.m.
One pilot was able to land safely and taxi his plane to shore, but the other spiralled out of control into the water.
Rescuers pulled the bodies of George “Bud” LEE, 71, and his 47-year-old son, Dan, both of Barrie, from the wreckage about 20-minutes after the crash.
A post-mortem Sunday showed both men died of severe trauma caused by the impact of the crash.
Larry MARTIN was childhood Friends with Dan, his brother, Tim, and sister, Sandra, who all attended Warnica Public School.
He said Dan was an avid competitive snowmobiler.
“We grew up together, but then you go your own directions. But, I know the family well,” MARTIN said, adding that his mother worked with Bud LEE at Kolmar Canada in Barrie until LEE retired a few weeks ago.
The plane was pulled out of the water late Saturday night and taken to the Currie Truck Centre north of Barrie where it will be examined by investigators today.
PILSON interviewed the surviving pilot. They say he took off from the Springwater Barrie Airpark on Saturday afternoon before heading out over the water, demonstrating his plane for a potential buyer who sat in the back seat. Another pilot was also on board.
Immediately before the crash, PILSON said the pilot, an experienced flyer with thousands of hours in the air, flew a circle around the bay, landed on the water and then took off again.
Around the same time, the LEEs' plane also took off from the water.
The planes collided about 250 feet in the air.
“The propeller struck the right rear float of the fatal plane,&rdquo PILSON said, adding the tail of the float plane was sheared off on impact.
The HILL- WHITSON family had been sailing off the Barrie shoreline for about an hour when the two low-flying planes caught their attention.
“I don't think they had any idea that they were in each other's airspace,” said Karen HILL- WHITSON. “It's hard to believe what we saw.&rdquo
Her 11-year-old son, Dalton, watched the planes collide, about 200 metres from their sailboat.
“At first I thought they were doing a trick or something,” he said. “They were getting so close and I thought, ‘Wow, what are they doing?' &rdquo
“It all happened so fast, and then all you could see were the pontoons in the water and the plane was upside down.&rdquo
After radioing for help, the family dropped the sail and hurried to the crash scene where more than a dozen boaters were trying to help.
“I saw one guy come up to the plane, and he didn't even stop his boat, he just jumped out into the water,” Karen said.
Derrick WAGNER was nearby on a Sea Doo when the float plane crashed.
He was in the water within minutes, working with other citizens to free the two men trapped inside.
“We tried, but we couldn't do anything,” WAGNER said. “We saw them, but we couldn't get to them.
“After about 15 minutes we had to give up because the fuel was all over the place. It was burning everyone.&rdquo
WAGNER returned to shore and was taken by ambulance to Royal Victoria Hospital where he was decontaminated and treated for a first-degree burn on his back.
“Everyone was trying to help,” he said. “People were throwing us masks, but they were all too small and the fuel was just too much.&rdquo
Firefighters, paramedics and police rushed to the scene, but the rescue efforts were hampered by the location of the crash.
“Something like this, we will definitely be responding as fast as possible,” said Barrie police Sgt. Dave GOODBRAND. “But you take the water, and the location, it always complicates the rescue effort when it happens on water because now everybody's got to get onto boats and get out there and that's not our primary mode of transportation.&rdquo
A Barrie police officer used a private citizen's boat to get to the crash site within minutes, and assist with the rescue effort.
An off-duty York Regional Police diver was also in the water helping.
Air ambulances stood by at the Southshore Community Centre, but were not used. One victim was dead at the scene, and the other was transported to Royal Victoria Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, GOODBRAND said.
Investigators say it's “close to a miracle” that three people on one of the planes walked away with just minor injuries. The pilot was treated at hospital for an injured knee.
“It's absolutely amazing,” PILSON said. “It's amazing, almost a miracle that these three people were able to walk away from this. It's amazing that the pilot was able to regain control and land the plane safely.
“He said at first it was difficult, but as the plane descended to the water, he was able to get control of it.&rdquo
After landing, the pilot taxied slowly to the dock at the Barrie marina where his boat was turned over to investigators.
Gus KRISTJANSSON was watching from Minet's Point Park.
“I heard a loud thump, but I don't know if that was the planes colliding or the one plane landing in the water,” he said. “When I looked, I saw the plane land and I followed it all the way to shore. He made a supurb landing and then took a slow, straight path to the dock.
“I can't believe he was able to land like that after crashing into another plane. It was a beautiful landing.&rdquo
While some witnesses: said it took too long for rescuers to reach the downed plane, KRISTJANSSON praised the response of emergency workers.
“I think the response here was amazing,” he said. “Within minutes there were firefighters and then paramedics and police.
“It was so quick, and there must have been about 60 people here all trying to help.&rdquo
Described as avid pilots, fishermen and snowmobilers, Bud and Dan LEE were long-time Barrie residents.
The are survived by wife and mother Barb, daughter and sister Sandy PRIEST, and son and brother Tim LEE. Bud was also grandfather to Colton and Jessi and brother to Jo GAREY and families. Visitation will be held at the Steckley-Gooderham Funeral Home, 201 Minet's Point Rd., on Tuesday from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Wednesday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Funeral services will be held in the chapel on Thursday, at 1 p.m.

Police treating death of boy as 'suspicious'
By Jered STUFFCO With a report from Oliver MOORE, Saturday, October 29, 2005, Page A22
Screams echoed through a quiet east-end neighbourhood early yesterday after the body of a 12-year-old boy was discovered in the basement of his family home.
An autopsy failed to reveal the cause of death. Although homicide officers were leading the investigation last night, the death is being treated officially as "suspicious."
Family Friends identified the boy as Jaimie CHAVEZ, a Grade 7 pupil at St. Joseph Elementary School.
While neighbours close to the family said Jaimie was found inside a large bin with foam on his mouth, coroner Trevor GILLMORE would not speculate on what killed the boy.
When asked why the death was being treated as suspicious, Dr. GILLMORE said, "Any death of this nature, involving a young person, we will treat it as a suspicious death."
Around 1: 40 a.m. yesterday, police at 55 Division received a call about a missing boy, police spokeswoman Isabelle COTTON said.
Less than two hours later, officers found Jaimie's body in the basement of the Coady Avenue house he lived in with his mother, Karen, and three siblings: Veronica, 14, Vanessa, 16, and Abel, who neighbours said turned 18 yesterday.
"We were wakened by screams and shouts," said Mark HENRY, who lives across the street and saw the boy's family gathering outside his window. "It was terrible. They were out in the street, screaming and crying. It was like nothing else I've ever heard."
Neighbour Louise COLE said she received a frantic phone call from the boy's mother late Thursday. "She says, 'Louise, have you seen Jaimie?' "
Later that night, Ms. COLE told Abel CHAVEZ to check his family's back shed and see whether the boy was hiding inside.
The shed was locked, and when Abel CHAVEZ went to his basement to get a screwdriver so he could crack open the latch on the shed's door, he made the grisly discovery, Ms. COLE said.
That's when Abel spotted the bin.
"He gave it a kick, opened the bin, and there was his brother."
Then, Ms. COLE heard what she described as an "ungodly scream."
"He was a sweet little boy with dark hair," she said, speaking to reporters on her front porch near Queen Street East and Carlaw Avenue yesterday.
Neighbours said the family had been living on the street for about five years.
Ms. COLE said that the boy's father, who drives a souped-up white Cadillac, runs a mechanic's shop on Sinnott Road in Scarborough and does not live with the rest of the family.
Yesterday afternoon, teachers and students from Jaimie's school gathered at St. Joseph's Church to mourn his death at a one-hour ceremony.
Father Frank WAGNER led the service and said, "It was a real shock. We're trying to help the students and staff cope with this loss."

Bernie SHARE, 74: Kitsch king of Queen St.
His antique store a neighbourhood clubhouse
'He was so positive, so uplifting'
By Catherine DUNPHY, Staff Reporter
Bernie SHARE's funeral on April 17 was fit for the king he was. His partner, Susan, moved some of his favourite things -- Iranian carpets, the carved ornamental side tables, the bobble-headed hula dolls, the jelly mould in the shape of a naked female torso, the elf cookie jar and salt and pepper set, and five of the 40-plus cowboy hats he owned -- down Queen St. W. into four rooms of the Bates and Dodds funeral home.
SHARE, 74, was the man who owned a neighbourhood mecca. Officially it was an antique store called Gallery and Innovations; unofficially the cluttered storefront with its wondrous wares tumbling out onto the sidewalk on the south side of Queen near Niagara St. was a neighbourhood clubhouse for the denizens of this neighbourhood and customers from all over the city.
Everybody knew the guy with the English accent in the three-piece suit and the cowboy hat, and lots of them referred to him as the King of Queen St. He'd owned one store or another in the area for well over 25 years and it was in one of them 23 years ago that he met Susan. A single mom of three boys working as a waitress in the area, she'd often walked past the store but rarely stopped. "I thought it was a weird junk store," she said, unaware of the valuable chandeliers and art deco pieces often piled one on top of the other inside.
But one day she spotted an Iranian carpet and, uncharacteristically, knew she had to own it. SHARE readily agreed she could take it and pay him the $600 in four instalments. "I was impressed. He'd never seen me before and he trusted me," she recalled.
But that was how he worked.
"I don't think he even kept a ledger. I'd admire something; he'd say 'There's a crack in it.' He'd say something was $300. You'd say 'You sure'? He'd say $275," said Agnes HANNA, a neighbour and former teacher at the local Givens Shaw public school. He gave her many items for her kindergarten classes.
"I'd see a set of maracas, a teddy bear, a little chair, for the kids. 'Take it,' he'd say. 'Take it.'"
For her own Queen St. home, HANNA once spotted a late 1800s chaise longue in the rain out in front of the store with only three legs. SHARE got the fourth leg carved for her.
He would sit inside at the front of his store, a cup of coffee in his hand, surrounded by antiques and kitsch. The chairs would change, as they were sold, but the feeling was the same: this was a living room in which anyone was welcome to sit and chat. "Like an old village gathering," HANNA said.
Neighbourhood artists used to drop by, often for career advice. The talks often went on past closing time, turning into coffee-fuelled discussions of art and life and truth that lasted till midnight. In the summer, the salons, for that's what they were, moved outside and SHARE would sit there on the sidewalk amid his treasures, in suit and Stetson -- looking as if he were dressed for a wedding, HANNA said -- and talk to just about anyone passing by.
Often there was music. Susan remembers a time when a passing musician noticed a guitar SHARE had brought outside and asked if he could play it. Soon he was joined by a musician who lived next door, then by another local talent. Encouraged by SHARE, they played on... till 3 the next morning. Neighbours and strangers came, sat, sang, laughed and chatted. It was a night of magic that could only happen in the big city and that was always happening at the store and around SHARE.
Which is why Susan was determined to take that feeling to the funeral home. Together she and SHARE had a combined family of 11 children, but SHARE also knew street people and people from showbiz from when he used to supply props to movie and theatre sets. Many of these people came to say goodbye and stayed to celebrate their friend. Three members of the talented O'Hara family were there: actress Catherine, singer-songwriter Mary Margaret and SHARE's former neighbour, Marcus, from when he owned the Squeeze Box Club next door.
Several of the local restaurants spontaneously sent over trays of food, as his friend and neighbour Roger CLOWN wandered through the rooms plucking SHARE's favourite Eddie Cantor and Al Jolson tunes on his banjo. "It was a carnival atmosphere. Dad would have loved it," said his daughter Maxine SHARE- STROM.
People signed the guest book, scribbling all over and in the corners what he meant to them. Two of his Friends, Sheldon WAGNER, a psychiatrist, and musician Rick CAPREOL spontaneously sat down together for several sets of the blues.
And most everyone there had a story. An Iranian gentleman said SHARE was the first friend he and his wife, an Iranian princess, made in Canada. One of SHARE's business colleagues recalled delivering props to the then O'Keefe Centre for a show featuring Diane Keaton. SHARE assured him they could go to the stage door, that Keaton knew him. His colleague was skeptical and the security guard there was downright hostile, readying for a heave-ho, when suddenly a throaty female voice behind him called: "Bernie. Hi." It was Keaton.
SHARE was born in Flushing, Long Island, in 1930 to conservative Jewish parents who returned to England when he was 5. He was 25 and a talented but reluctant tailor when he married his first wife, Annette. They came to Canada in 1960 and opened up an antique store on Queen St. E. at Larchmount. They had a second store in the area that Maxine SHARE- STROM ran when she was 11.
She remembers being so excited to tell her father she had sold a six-place setting of Wedgwood china for $12. "He just smiled at me and said 'Good for you, honey,'" Later he showed her the setting in the reference book, telling her that it may have been worth "a little more" (it was worth probably $1,000 at the time) but that this was a good lesson for her to learn the value of things.
"That was my father. He was so positive, so uplifting," she said.
At the time, he was driving a cab to augment the family's income. SHARE- STROM remembers waking up some mornings to find a stranger asleep on the sofa, another fare down on his luck whom her father had brought home for a few days.
He moved the two stores to the Queen and Sherbourne Sts. area, and added a third across the street. All were called My Place. Later he crossed Yonge St. to set up another shop, this one on Queen St. W. closer to Bathurst St. SHARE- STROM had just graduated from high school, but she also opened a store there, across the street from her father's. "I am my father," she said. "Dad taught me to be fearless."
SHARE- STROM describes herself as the second daughter of SHARE's first "litter" of six children: five girls and a boy. Later, after his marriage ended, he had two more daughters from another relationship before meeting Susan and virtually adopting her three sons.
Now one of them, Kerry SARTZETAKIS, will be running the business with Susan.
She won't close. She can't. SHARE's presence is everywhere in this store, with its bric-a-brac, books, hat boxes, African carvings, brass beds, Czech glass and Raggedy Ann dolls. One of his cowboy hats is hanging on a peg. His chair is still at the front of the store. And his portrait sits atop one of the stacked dressers, overtop the shelf holding his favourite collectibles: the elf salt and pepper shakers, the hula dancers. In it Bernie SHARE is smiling -- and wearing his black cowboy hat.

WAGSTAFFE, F Andrew, O.B.E. (January 8, 1925-March 23, 2005)
Our Husband, Brother, Father, Grandfather and Friend. Fought and died a thousand times with the 'D.L.I.' in '50 Div' and '7th Armoured' from Normandy to Berlin. Married and loved Shirley for 54 years. Raised three Sons. Managed and owned businesses, from 'Williams Cycles' of Cheltenham, to 'North Shore Linens' of North Vancouver. Told the world to 'Sod off' on various occasions. Will be much missed, but immortalized with his jokes, tales and limericks. Thanks to the brilliant staff at Lions Gate Hospital (2nd floor) and all the 'bastards' who poked, cut, stitched and replaced over the years. It was, most definitely, worth all of your efforts.

WAGSTAFFE, Shirley
Shirley WAGSTAFFE died on July 25, 2005. She was 75. Born and raised in a village near London, England, she was 14 when she met Andrew, a young soldier from Yorkshire who was stationed in her village. Andrew returned to marry her after fighting from Normandy to Berlin. They were both kind and generous and funny and otherwise had absolutely nothing in common except their love for each other and for their three sons. They argued about anything and everything that came to hand, saving their most intractable disputes for family vacations in a small travel trailer a thousand miles or more from home. When she was required to observe 'a woman's place' she did it badly to the delight of her children who could sense the danger in asking her to pretend she was second best to anyone. All her life she had a steady gaze that could stop a man from whining in an instant. She was a terrific mother, ever ready to jump into our games, resourceful and encouraging. She loved us and we loved her back. She never studied at university but when the chance came to work at University of British Columbia she jumped at it. As assistant to the Faculty of Arts Advisor she managed the chaos of registration, steered the lost and encouraged the disheartened. In retirement she ran, volunteered, jousted with Andrew, loved and encouraged her five grand-daughters. Andrew died in March of this year after 54 years of marriage to Shirley. She was inconsolably lonely without him. Andrew and Shirley were not the Owl and the Pussycat, they were the Mule and the Wildcat. Now, in the their beautiful pea-green boat, they are arguing about who doesn't know how to read charts and who would make it easier to read the chart if he wasn't splashing water on it with his oars. Dear Lord it was hard to give them back. Look after Shirley and Andrew. A Memorial Service for Shirley will be held at St. Stephens Church, 22nd Ave, W. Vancouver on Friday, August 26 at 2 p.m. Donations to the Canadian Cancer Society in lieu of flowers with our sincere thanks.
