WALKER, Kenneth Clare (April 23rd, 1931-February 11th, 1994)
too soon for a man who had so much life to live and even more love to give.
If I had only known it was our last walk in the rain, I would have kept you out for hours in the storm. I would hold your hand, like a lifeline to my heart. And underneath the thunder we would be warm. If I had only known I'll never hear your voice again, I would have memorized each word you said. And on lonely nights I would think of them once more. You were the treasure in my heart, you were the one who always stood beside me, so unaware I foolishly believed that you would always be there; but then there came a day when I closed my eyes and you slipped away. If I had only known it was my last night by your side, I would have prayed a miracle would stop the dawn; and when you smiled at me I'd look into your eyes and make sure you knew I was prepared to love you more and more, not weep for you so soon. An honest man, the noblest of all. Love so beautiful in every way. You gave me all your love, but left footprints on my heart.
Lovingly and respectfully, Madeline.

In loving memory of my Dad, Kenneth Clare, who passed away 11 years ago, February 11, 1994.
Dad, it's hard to believe that 11 years have come and gone,
It still seems like only yesterday.
So much has happened,
I can't believe how often something reminds me of you or of something you said or did and how quickly my eyes fill with tears of sadness when I think of you.
But when I think of the train in Paris,
I always smile.
Miss you so much, love Jennifer and Harold.

In loving memory of my father, Kenneth Clare.
When I was just a little child learning how to walk,
I struggled and stumbled on my own,
But when I held my father's hand, what a change it brought.
There was no place I could not go.
No road too long, no hill too steep,
Silent strength was in my father's hand,
Silent strength gave me the power to stand,
When he held my hand,
His silent strength was mine.
I love you and miss you Dad,
Rosemary, Scott and Abbey.

School mourns teen killed by freight train
By Kelly PEDRO and Jon WILLING, Free Press Reporter; Special to The Free Press
Students at a Woodstock high school paid tribute yesterday to a classmate killed when he ran into the path of a freight train Tuesday night. Marc MATTHEWS, 17, of Embro, was killed instantly, police said.
"This is going to be one of those tragedies that shakes up the community," said Oxford Community police Const. Bob McDONALD.
Staff and students at College Avenue secondary school spent yesterday remembering MATTHEWS, a Grade 11 student.
"It's a sad loss when there's a sad, tragic accident," principal Judy THORNER said.
An announcement of MATTHEW's death was made to the school. Students signed a long piece of paper in the school's guidance office and wrote tributes to MATTHEWS.
After classes yesterday, students described MATTHEWS as a likable classmate.
"He was a good kid," Billy HARRIS, 15, said.
"I was weak today," Bobby WALKER, 16, said. "He was one of my best Friends."
MATTHEWS's uncle, Randy LOVE, said the teen loved outdoor activities, including skateboarding and swimming.
"He liked to do dirt biking and rollerblading," LOVE said, noting MATTHEWS was always willing to help those close to him. "If he could help you out, he would."
MATTHEWS was walking about 8: 45 p.m. when the lights and gates at a rail crossing on Wilson Street in the city's downtown were activated, police said.
Police aren't sure why MATTHEWS bolted across the tracks, where he was hit by a westbound Canadian National freight, said McDONALD.
Investigators are trying to determine if MATTHEWS was alone and where he was going.
Police ask anyone who saw what happened to call them at 537-2323.
The train was en route from Toronto to Sarnia.
The crew asked for relief at the scene and was replaced, said Canadian National's Ian THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON.
The tracks were closed until about midnight.
The crossing is in one of the heaviest freight corridors, said THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, with about 40 Canadian National freight trains travelling through it every day.

McDONOUGH, Ivan Patrick
Passed away Saturday, February 5, in his 47th year surrounded by his family and dearest Friends. His remarkable dignity in the face of the cancer that took his life taught us all the meaning of true courage. Ivan was much loved for his gentle and generous ways. His job as a Canadian National Railway engineer and his passion for curling kept him in Northern Ontario for most of his life, but did not completely tame his love of exotic travel. His final gift to his siblings, Peggy, Mary, Robert and Jane, was to remind them of their deep commitment and fierce loyalty to each other. His nephews, Joseph and William (McDONOUGH) and his nieces, Kielly (McDONOUGH) and Sinead (WALKER,) will remember their uncle 'Brutie' as 'the one who loved to play with us' - and they will always love him. Our very special thanks to Dr. Geoff DAVIS and the wonderful staff of St. Joseph's Hospice. Our heart-felt thanks, also, to Friends Don and Pam SMITH; Robert and Dana MacMILLAN who were with Ivan constantly and provided much support to all of us. In lieu of flowers, we ask that donations in Ivan's name be made to St. Joseph's Foundation of Thunder Bay, 63 Carrie Street, Thunder Bay Ontario P7A 4J2.

The family moved briefly to Calgary before settling in Edmonton in 1959, where their third child, Grant, was born. Sally's focus was raising her three children and supporting her husband. Together, she and Don shared with their family the importance of education, an appreciation of the arts, and a love of life. They also found time to take up tennis and enjoyed many hours as members of the Capilano Tennis Club. After Don's passing in 1991, Sally added golf to her recreations, and enjoyed frequent outings with Friends on the links as well as the courts.
Sally's final weeks were made easier by the caring professionals at the Palliative Home Care program and the organizations that support it, who enabled her to pass comfortably and with dignity in her home. On Sally's behalf, and their own, her children extend their thanks.

Gus BODNAR, Athlete, Coach And Salesman 1923-2005
In 1943, the handsome and 'dimpled darling' of the Maple Leafs was the quickest, slickest thing on skates when he set an National Hockey League record for the fastest goal scored by a rookie
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, July 9, 2005, Page S9
Vancouver -- On October 30, 1943, Ontario Premier George DREW stepped to centre ice at Maple Leaf Gardens to drop the puck for a ceremonial face-off. The Toronto Maple Leafs had several rookies in the lineup to start the season, as wartime enlistments thinned the ranks. Among those skating into the breach was a handsome 20-year-old centre-man named Gus BODNAR.
Fifteen seconds from the start of the game, Mr. BODNAR pounced on a loose puck in front of the New York Rangers net. He slipped the disk into the net past goalie Ken McAuley. Just like that, the young forward had etched his name in the National Hockey League record book. Nearly 62 years later, the goal still stands as the quickest scored by a player making his debut.
Mr. BODNAR added another goal and an assist in leading the Leafs to a 5-2 win in the season opener, a performance that made him an instant fan favourite in Toronto.
Mr. BODNAR was a wiry centre with a reputation as a savvy playmaker. As a 5-foot-11, 150-pound rookie, he seemed a tad fragile to survive professional hockey's take-no-prisoners combat. Indeed, he would suffer a lengthy list of wounds and ailments in his career. He exited many games on his back courtesy of stretcher bearers and more than once did so while unconscious. Yet, he always seemed to be back on the ice within a week or two.
Sportswriters praised the skills of the "dynamic midget" who was described as a "resourceful young puckster" and "one of the slickest skaters ever."
The "dimpled darling" of "cherubic countenance" received poetry and mash notes from female admirers in those years when so many men were serving overseas. Mr. BODNAR, who had been rejected for army service for heart palpitations, was said to inflict that condition on his bobby-soxer fans. One piece of doggerel that made the newspapers read: "We want Gussy, good or bad/ He's the cutest number you've ever had."
What his erstwhile suitors did not know was that he was carrying a torch for a high-school sweetheart back home in Fort William (now Thunder Bay).
August BODNARCHUK starred with the junior team in his Ontario hometown, his obvious skills catching the attention of Leafs scout Squib WALKER. In his final season of junior hockey, the centre scored 10 goals and 29 assists in just nine games with the Fort William Hurricane-Rangers in 1942-43.
The brash youngster arrived at his first Leafs training camp convinced he would soon be an National Hockey League star.
"I thought I was pretty big stuff," he later told Frank ORR of the Toronto Star. "I had my hair long and all slickered down with goo. I figured I was about the hottest rookie ever to hit the pros, even though I weighed only 145 pounds."
The rookie got a quick and unforgettable lesson in the realities of the National Hockey League when veteran, 205-pound defenceman Bucko McDonald hit him with a stiff bodycheck during a scrimmage.
"I crashed to the ice and figured every bone in my body was broken. The only reason my hair was still attached to my head was because of all the goo I had on it."
He learned to skate with his head up, alert to incoming threats.
The three-point debut was a harbinger of a stellar rookie campaign spent on the Leafs first line between veterans Bob Davidson and Lorne Carr. Mr. BODNAR's talents earned him the Calder Trophy as the National Hockey League's outstanding rookie. Montreal Canadiens goalie Bill Durnan was runner-up, while Leafs rookies Elwin Morris and Teeder Kennedy tied for third. The trophy was announced on the final day of the season. Mr. BODNAR then scored two goals and three assists in a 10-2 shelling of the Boston Bruins.
Mr. BODNAR ended his first season with 20 goals and 42 assists to set a new league mark for scoring by a rookie. The record would stand for a quarter century until beaten by Danny Grant of the Minnesota North Stars in 1968-69. Mr. BODNAR's 62-point season was the Leafs club standard for rookies until bettered by Peter Ihnacak in 1982-83.
While Mr. BODNAR scored just eight goals in his sophomore season, his three playoff goals were all game winners. The Leafs outlasted the Detroit Red Wings in seven games to claim the Stanley Cup in 1945. Mr. BODNAR would also get his name on the Cup with the Leafs in 1947.
In his years with the Leafs, he centred Mr. Carr and Sweeney Schriner to form the Bacon Line, so called because the trio "brought home the bacon." He later combined with Bud Poile and Gaye Stewart to form the Flying Forts. All three players hailed from Fort William and all were part of a blockbuster, seven-player deal with the Chicago Black Hawks in 1947.
The seasons in Chicago were highlighted by a magnificent feat coming in the third period of the final game of the 1951-52 season. Chicago's Bill Mosienko scored three goals in 21 seconds against the Rangers on March 23, 1952. Mr. BODNAR assisted on all three. The record for the three fastest goals -- coming at 6: 09, 6:20 and 6: 30 -- still stands, as does the record for three fastest assists.
"I never left centre ice," Mr. BODNAR once told Paul Patton of the Globe. "I just won the face-offs and [Mosienko] did the rest."
Mr. BODNAR was later traded to Boston, where he ended his National Hockey League career after the 1954-55 season. He had scored 142 goals with 254 assists in 667 games. Along the way, he had also gone and married that hometown sweetheart, Etta MacDONALD. They were wed in Toronto in 1948 at a ceremony which included such Leaf greats as Teeder Kennedy, Syl Apps, Turk Broda, Don and Nick Metz, and Wally Stanowski, who was best man.
The player's popularity was such that a newspaper photographer was dispatched to Wellesley Hospital in Toronto to capture Mr. BODNAR and his bride posing with their first-born child, a daughter named Bonny Lynn, in 1949. He had rushed to the hospital on a Saturday night after playing the Leafs. He then caught a train for Chicago.
A house painter in the off season during his early hockey career, Mr. BODNAR had a long career as a salesman for a steel company. He also coached the Toronto Marlboros from 1965 to 1970, winning the Memorial Cup in Centennial Year with a roster including future National Hockey League defencemen Mike Pelyk, Brian Glennie and an 18-year-old Brad Park, who would become a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame.
Mr. BODNAR's patience and willingness to adapt to his young players' needs made him an ideal junior coach. He was not a screamer, unlike so many of his peers.
He left the Marlies just before the opening of training camp in 1970, when offered the general manager and coaching posts for the Salt Lake City (Utah) Golden Eagles of the Western Hockey League. His first job as a pro coach ended after a season, as the Buffalo Sabres farm team finished with a woeful record of 18 wins, 49 losses, 5 ties.
Mr. BODNAR headed the Oshawa Generals when named Ontario Hockey League coach of the year in 1972.
He also was one of three coaches to handle Canada's junior team in 1977-78, which won a disappointing bronze medal at the World Cup. The roster included Mike Gartner, Rick Vaive and a 16-year-old Wayne Gretzky.
In recent years, Mr. BODNAR often took part in charity golf tournaments. He has been inducted into sports halls of fame at Oshawa and Northwestern Ontario at Thunder Bay.
Gus BODNAR was born on April 24, 1923, at Fort William (now Thunder Bay), Ontario He died on Canada Day in Oshawa, Ontario He was 82. He is survived by his wife, Etta. He also leaves a son and four daughters.

Pat began her career with Canadian Automobile Association in 1962 after graduating from Ryerson Polytechnical Institute's Radio and Television Arts Program. During her 33 year career with Canadian Automobile Association, Pat was a well-respected authority on road safety, winter driving techniques, and vehicle safety. Until 1977, Pat did the traffic reports for many of Metro Toronto's top radio stations and was dubbed "The Voice of Canadian Automobile Association" she then went on to give countless radio and television interviews.
Pat served on many safety-related organizations; she was a Member of the Metro Safety Council, The Canadian Association of Road Safety Professionals, a Trustee and Chairperson of the Traffic Safety Committee and Secretary and Vice Chairperson of The Better Roads Coalition.
Pat took the lead and actively campaigned for seat belt legislation and promoted the concept of government approved standards for seat belts in automobiles manufactured in North America. She worked closely with Transport Canada to promote the proper use of Child Restraint Systems. Pat implemented a wide variety of safety programs for drivers and pedestrians.
In 1984, Pat responded to a request for the then Ministry of Correctional Services to "Stop Impaired Probationers in Toronto" and served on The Advisory Council for "People to Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere".
Perhaps one of Pat's most notable contributions to Canadian Automobile Association was her active involvement in the School Safety Patrol Program. From 1969 and until her retirement in 1995, she was the Chief Co-ordinator of the "School Safety Patrol Officers' Training Camp" which is held annually at Camp Samac in Oshawa. Each year, approximately 200 students attend the camp and in her honour, the Patricia A. Curran School Safety Patroller of Year award is presented to one of approximately 21,000 active patrollers within the club territory. Each year, Pat presented the award to the recipient of the patroller of the year award. She will be greatly missed by all Canadian Automobile Association associates who had the honour of knowing her and by the students who enjoyed her presence during the camp.

PACE, Dr. William Eugene, M.D., M.Sc., F.R.C.P.C.
Dermatologist and Clinical Professor Emeritus, University of Western Ontario, passed away peacefully and gracefully in his 90th year on Thursday, November 10, 2005 after surgery following a longstanding battle with Parkinson's Disease. He is survived by the love of his life, Elizabeth (WAUGH) PACE and their six children, spouses and grandchildren. They are: Anne (PACE) WALKER and Harry WALKER of Burlington with children Jennifer (Walker) SMITH and husband Steve, Lindsay and David; Captain John and Sheilagh PACE of Montreal with children Jessica and Kaitlin Dr. Ron and Ellen PACE of Waterloo with children Michael and Alison; Mary PACE and Roy FRENCH of Toronto with son Alex; Allan PACE and Lin WARD of Orangeville with son Taylor; and Carla PACE and her friend Colin WHITE/WHYTE of Vancouver. Brother-in-law to Pat WAUGH and the late Dick WAUGH, and much loved uncle to his many Waugh nieces and nephews. Bill PACE graduated from Medicine at the University of Western Ontario in 1941 and ser ved as Squadron Leader, Medical Services in the Royal Canadian Air Force during the Second World War (1942-1946). During that time, he developed a life-long passion for flying, a dream that came to fruition after he earned his commercial pilot's license at the age of 74. Following the war, he went on to obtain his M.Sc. in Biochemistry and then specialized in Dermatology, a field of medicine that at the time was still in its infancy. He was passionate about the dangers of sunlight long before it was fashionable and he became an expert on sun-induced skin damage. Through his dedicated efforts that include the discovery of Benzoyl Peroxide as an effective treatment for the humiliating disease of teenage acne, and his compassionate and tireless treatment of complex skin ulcers, his referral practice flourished. He often became the final arbiter for complex problems that had resisted diagnosis and treatment. His love for his work and family was matched by his love of the great outdoors, which he shared with his wife and children on many occasions. As an avid canoe tripper and naturalist, every portage and campsite became a field trip where the beauties of nature were honoured and respected. His agile and tireless mind was not hampered by the deafness that progressed throughout his adult life, nor by the Parkinson's Disease that robbed him of his physical mobility in his later years. His keen intellect, hearty laugh and sparkling blue eyes will be remembered as a lasting tribute to his long and productive life. Visitation on Tuesday, November 15th from 2-4 pm and 7-9 pm at James A. Harris Funeral Home 220 St. James St. at Richmond Street, London, Ontario where the funeral service will be conducted on Wednesday, November 16th at 11: 00 a.m. Cremation and interment to take place at a later date at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery. In lieu of flowers a donation to the Parkinson Society Canada, 4500 Blakie Road, Unit 117, London, Ontario N6L 1G5 would be greatly appreciated.

PRINCE, Walter Harry, Q.C.L.L.D.
In his 79th Year. Passed away peacefully at home on November 27, 2005 showing amazing strength and dignity during his challenge with cancer.
Walter is survived by his loving wife and best friend of 49 yrs. Janet, and their children Judith and Dr. Ross WALKER of Kingston and Stewart and Mary (GRONDIN) PRINCE of Windsor. Dear "Grandad" to Andrew, Emily and Fraser Walker and Matthew and Jack PRINCE. Brother of Dr. Jack PRINCE and wife Elaine of Windsor, and brother-in-law of Marjory and John ("Jack") CRANFORD of Toronto.
Born in Windsor, Ontario, Walter had a distinguished and successful 50 year career in law. After attending Kennedy Collegiate he graduated from the University of Western Ontario in 1950, and was called to the bar in 1955 as a graduate of Osgoode Hall Law School. He began his career in Windsor as an associate with the firm Fraser and McPherson. In 1965, a new partnership, McPherson, Prince and Geddes was formed. Walter was appointed Queens Council in 1969. He was the senior partner with McPherson, Prince and Geddes when the firm merged with Mousseau Deluca in 2001. That year he received the designation of "Certified Specialist in Estate and Trust Laws" by the Law Society of Upper Canada. Most recently (April 2005) he received a Doctor of Laws honorary degree from Assumption University in Windsor.
Walter has been Chairman of the Windsor Planning Board, Chairman of the Windsor- Essex County Development Commision, Chairman of the Windsor Estate Planning Commision, Chairman of the Guaranty Trust/Central Trust Advisory Board and Chairman of the Leamington Police Commision. He was also a member and past President of the Essex County Law Association, member of the Canadian Bar Association and member of the Canadian Tax Foundation. As President of the Windsor Young Men's Christian Association and Vice-President of the National Council of Young Men's Christian Association Canada, he received the Canadian Young Men's Christian Association "Fellowship of Honour Citation" as presented in Ottawa by the then Canadian Governor General in 1984. He was also a member of the Essex-Scottish Veterans Association and member/Past-President of the Windsor Club.
As devoted and dedicated Walter was to his career, he was equally, if not more devoted and loving to his family. He valued Friendships and respected colleagues. Perhaps his greatest joy was to spend time with his family and Friends at "the cottage" on Lake Huron in north Oliphant, Ontario. The multi-purpose "boathouse" was home to his summer office and woodworking shop he so treasured.
The Memorial Service will be held at Riverside United Church, 881 Glidden Avenue, Windsor, Ontario on Friday, December 2, 2005 at 11am. Reception and Visitation following. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Hospice of Windsor.

Don SCOTT, Athlete and Chief Executive Officer (1927-2005)
Argonaut player who competed in the famous 'mud bowl' Grey Cup of 1950 went on to head the country's largest accounting firm
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, December 5, 2005 Page, S11
Toronto -- Don SCOTT's athleticism led him to one of the most famous football games in Canadian history, his brains took him atop the leading accounting firm in Canada and his influence made him instrumental when Ontario moved to no-fault automobile insurance in the early 1990s.
He grew up in Windsor, Ontario in the Depression years, when times were tough for him, his father, a Ford Motor Co. employee, and his bookkeeper mother. He attended Patterson Collegiate Institute where he excelled at football, basketball, and track and field. He was the head boy at the school, a two-time member of the all-city, senior basketball team, and he won the Arthur Currie Memorial Scholarship to attend the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, where he played both football and basketball. In 1949, he graduated with a business degree, began studying for his chartered-accounting exam and found himself playing pro that same year for the Toronto Argonauts. He was an offensive end, packing no more than 160 pounds on a 6-foot-1 frame.
"He was very skinny, the lightest man on the field," his daughter Barb said.
"He was a tall, rangy kid, who worked hard and was very modest. He was well-liked as a teammate, said former teammate Nick VOLPE.
"He wasn't really a star but he was a good outside end, a good catch," said ex-teammate Don DURNO. "He wasn't a hefty man. He was probably more of a basketball player with his size."
Buddy FOWLER, another old Argo mate, recalled Mr. SCOTT as a "wonderful guy and great athlete with a great attitude on life."
Mr. SCOTT played three seasons for the Argos, the second of which was his most memorable because they went all the way to the Grey Cup. Mr. SCOTT, Rod SMYLIE, Marv WHALEY and Jack WEBLEY made up Toronto's potent wide-receiver corps as the Argos rolled along that year. As each November week passed, Mr. SCOTT and his fiancée, Eileen, had to keep postponing their wedding. They had picked November 4 as the date but a winning streak put the nuptials on the backburner.
How good was this Toronto team? At the time, Globe and Mail football writer Hal WALKER described the club as "the greatest Argonaut team of all time." Later that year, sports writers picked them as the top football team of the first half century in Canada.
The Frank Clair-coached Argos started off post-season play by disposing of the Hamilton Tiger Cats 35-19 in the two-game, total-points division championship. The Grey Cup game on November 25 at Toronto's Varsity Stadium became known as the "mud bowl." It was a classic game, but not in the offensive sense. At least a foot of snow had hit Toronto the day before, then melted, and the game became a defensive struggle marred by a muddy morass. Mr. VOLPE kicked two field goals to help Toronto beat the Winnipeg Blue Bombers "The field was a sea of water," Mr. VOLPE said. "Bulldozers tried to clear away the water but [they] made it a muddy mess instead. We were literally playing in mud. Bud Tinsley of the Blue Bombers almost drowned. He was face down in the mud and water and he was gasping for breath. He was saved by a referee."
With the big game over, Mr. SCOTT and Eileen finally made firm plans for their wedding. They were married in London on December Mr. SCOTT played one more season for the Argos in 1951 and then decided to retire because his playing time had diminished. "1951 was the year they started bringing in a lot of Americans and didn't use the Canadians as much," his wife said. "After the mud bowl, Don didn't play much."
By that time, Mr. SCOTT had already found a job with Clarkson Gordon. Now part of Ernst Young, it was then Canada's largest accounting firm. He rose to become chairman and chief executive officer, posts he held for eight years.
"Don had a tremendous intellect," said Jim BUNTON, a former associate at Clarkson Gordon. "He kind of glowed. He had a lot of charisma and was very good with staff and people."
Fending off retirement, Mr. SCOTT listened to a number of offers from various groups and companies, finally heeding the call of the provincial government to become head of the Ontario Insurance Commission just when no-fault automobile insurance was coming into play. But in going from the private sector to the tangled red tape of government Mr. SCOTT experienced endless frustrations.
"It was a very trying time," his daughter said. "It was a completely different scenario. In the private sector, he could get something done quickly but, in the public sector, it's not easy. It's a different mindset."
For all that, he left a distinct impression at the Ontario Insurance Commission, said Bernie WEBBER, a former deputy-commissioner under Mr. SCOTT. "He was skilled in athleticism, he was the head of one of Canada's largest accounting firms and he became a top civil servant. We shared a love of language and a mutual disdain for sloppy USAge, particularly by media reporters and announcers whose stock-in-trade is language and who should, by definition, be more precise. You always knew where you stood with him."
Don SCOTT was born July 30, 1927, in Windsor, Ontario He died of cancer on November 3, 2005, in Toronto. He is survived by his wife Eileen and children Christy, Lauren, Barb and Rob.

She saw hope in every street kid
Karen POSITANO a passionate and stubborn advocate
Worked to start training programs, needle exchange
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Perhaps this anecdote can best sum up the many parts of Karen POSITANO, a petite and driven dynamo, an original, as well as a world traveller, insomniac, wife, mother of three and champion of every street kid who came by Youthlink Inner City, the drop-in resource centre and outreach program where she worked for almost 16 years:
It was 1994 and POSITANO was in Amsterdam at a world A.I.D.S. conference. She had met up with Hélène LALONDE, her buddy since their teenaged days in Ottawa when they lived innocently but recklessly and knew everyone, including bikers and drug dealers. She and LALONDE, now a consultant often working for the Canadian International Development Agency in developing countries, were standing at a bus stop when a passerby shrieked: "Karen POSITANO!"
It was Gwendolyn, a stripper POSITANO knew from Toronto who was in Amsterdam working at a live sex show.
"Karen POSITANO?" echoed one of the other people at the stop.
Turns out this person was with the World Health Organization and had been seeking POSITANO to sign her up as a speaker at a Rio de Janeiro conference for street kids, and she'd been hard pressed to locate her, as POSITANO had spent much of the last two days marching on the street with prostitutes.
"Yeah, she left me at the hotel," said her youngest daughter, Jill ROCHON, with a laugh. She was 14 at the time. "I was safe there, she knew that."
POSITANO was well known internationally. She was invited to make presentations at another world A.I.D.S. conference in Vancouver as well as at various H.I.V. and A.I.D.S. prevention and hepatitis C gatherings throughout North America.
In Toronto she was a member of Councillor Olivia CHOW's children and youth committee.
What she was renowned for was her tenacity, her push and her passion. After her first marriage failed and she lost her bid to convince a court to change her children's surname to hers, she took the matter to the Supreme Court.
"When she decided to do something, you just got out of the way," said her second husband, Gerry ROCHON.
"She definitely had a stubborn streak," said her eldest child, Karyn, 31. It is why she and brother Cain, 30, have the surname POSITANO.
In the early '80s, POSITANO and ROCHON and the three kids moved to Ottawa from Vancouver where they had been living. There she worked full-time and went to school full-time, getting a degree in criminology plus her master of social work. She also organized and played in a women's baseball league, acted in university theatre, took dance classes and travelled to exotic destinations such as Thailand.
She began working with street youth at Youthlink Inner City as part of the job placement for her social work degree; she was so enthusiastic about the work that not only did she convince her family to move to Toronto, she also created her own full-time employment there.
"Inner City was the root of her work. It catered to youth no one else would, those with mental health problems, prostitutes, drug users," said Rebecca BASSEY, a friend and former employee.
POSITANO never let anything stand in the way of getting more programs or more program dollars for the youth she saw every day at her office. Her funding proposals were legendary -- succinct, persuasive and usually written a month before the deadline -- but her first work for Youthlink was the production of two very radical education videos for street youth.
STD Street Smarts and Street Wise Women came with a warning of "frank language and explicit imagery" because the penises in the videos were real.
"Some people might say her style was abrasive," said Liz GREAVES, Youthlink executive director, "but she shot straight from the hip."
In 1999, she blasted the Mayor's Task Force on Homelessness, of which GREAVES was a member, for ignoring the plight of homeless youth.
"She was absolutely right," GREAVES said. The task force subsequently commissioned a report.
Fearless and always on the cutting edge, POSITANO was an early advocate of Youthlink's work in harm reduction. The agency was the first in the city to run a needle exchange program.
In 1998, she was one of the organizers of a program for squeegee kids, a new headline-grabbing demographic that was unsettling if not scaring many people in the city. While police were cracking down on homeless people in public places and the provincial government was bringing in the Safe Streets Act, POSITANO was part of a group lobbying Toronto politicians for resources to help these youth. The result is a fully federally funded training program teaching computer skills called the Youth Skills Zone.
In 1995, POSITANO was promoted to supervisor, responsible for a staff of about nine at Youthlink Inner City's drop-in/resource and outreach program. She started the Sock Swap, gathering cast-offs from families and Friends to recycle to the street kids. Before the centre got its washer and dryer, she'd take all the dirty socks home to wash them. She also started a monthly supper club for street youth with hepatitis C.
An early proponent of the peer educator program, in which clients work 10 hours a week at the drop-in and do outreach with other street or addicted youth, she conceived and won funding for the advanced peer education program.
This is a year-long full-time staff position, "one of the most important positions we have," according to Inner City supervisor Diana WALKER. "I think Karen saw hope in everyone who walked through the door."
POSITANO raced through her life, taking each of her children on a coming-of-age trip to Europe, meeting up with LALONDE in Kenya, Brazil and Egypt, holidaying with BASSEY in Jamaica and with her husband in Morocco, and finding thrift stores wherever she went. She volunteered with Habitat for Humanity building houses in Fiji, Uganda and India, where she met Mother Teresa. Once a month, she spent her Saturday mornings working in the Big Sisters thrift shop at Lawrence Ave. W. and Avenue Rd. More than once she climbed the C.N. Tower stairs for the United Way.
For kicks, she was an extra in David Cronenberg's The Naked Lunch, stalked celebrities on the red carpet at all the Toronto Film Festivals, dragged family and Friends to rock concerts, and plundered furniture discarded in Forest Hill and Rosedale. She and ROCHON bought, renovated and sold nine houses together. She also loved organizing and decorating them.
"She packed a lot in," said ROCHON. "It was as if she almost knew she wouldn't have a long life."
She'd beaten cancer of the uterus 14 years earlier, so she was typically upbeat when she was diagnosed two years ago with breast cancer.
"She had the kind of personality that you just thought she would beat it," said LALONDE.
"She always said it was no big deal," added BASSEY.
And they believed her even when she suffered a heart attack a year ago that almost ended her life. POSITANO rallied enough to sometimes make it back to work and to her office with the window that looked out on to the kitchen and eating area of the drop-in centre.
"I used to update her, make her feel at home because she didn't know a lot of the clients now," said John LAFORME, a crack addict and regular at Youthlink for four years. POSITANO always encouraged him to get the help he needed and last month he left for a detox facility in Quebec. "I'm doing it for me and for Karen," he said. "I've been in drop-ins and agencies across Canada and Karen was one of the best drop-in workers ever. She took the time to get to know you."
Ten days before she died, at her home on the afternoon of October 1 at the age 52, POSITANO attended a Youthlink managers' meeting. A day or so later, she sent Liz GREAVES an email saying she was going to lick cancer. "There was such a fierceness to her," GREAVES said.
POSITANO wanted to live long enough to see her first grandchild, and she did. Karyn named her newborn daughter Kalina, Hawaiian for Karen.

McDONOUGH, Ivan Patrick
Passed away Saturday, February 5, 2005, in his 47th year, surrounded by his family and dearest Friends. His remarkable dignity in the face of the cancer that took his life taught us all the meaning of true courage. Ivan was much loved for his gentle and generous ways. His job as a Canadian National Railway engineer and his passion for curling kept him in Northern Ontario for most of his life, but did not completely tame his love of exotic travel. His final gift to his siblings, Peggy, Mary, Robert and Jane, was to remind them of their deep commitment and fierce loyalty to each other. His nephews, Joseph and William (McDONOUGH) and his nieces, Kielly (McDONOUGH) and Sinead (WALKER,) will remember their Uncle "Brutie" as "the one who loved to play with us" - and they will always love him. Our very special thanks to Dr. Geoff DAVIS and the wonderful staff of St. Joseph's Hospice. Our heart-felt thanks, also, to Friends Don and Pam SMITH; Robert and Dana MacMILLAN who were with Ivan constantly and provided much support to all of us. In lieu of flowers, we ask that donations in Ivan's name be made to St. Joseph's Foundation of Thunder Bay, 63 Carrie Street, Thunder Bay, Ontario P7A 4J2.

He made every day a good hair day
Yorkville hair colourist worked until age 91
Bon vivant and master of his craft beloved by clients
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Legendary hair colourist Pierre TESSIER was on the job up until the week before he was admitted to hospital where he died three weeks later on February 17. Even though he was 91 years old, he never had any intention of ever stopping work.
At The Private World of Mary Tripi, the upscale Yorkville hair salon where he was employed for the last decade of his life, there's a sweeping spiral staircase that leads up to a big, bright room overlooking the old fire hall across the street. Every morning he would pause at the top of the stairs, an erect dapper figure, immaculate in one of his starched shirts and silk cravats, and beam at his co-workers. Mary TRIPI herself works at the station at the top of the stairs.
"It was a wonderful smile," she said.
A client recommended she hire TESSIER but warned her he was old. "Then I met him," she recalled. "He wasn't old. He had a magic. He was the age he was -- but also he wasn't."
He loved this world of artistry and egos, power and pampering, where four days a week he engaged in the curious intimacy forged between a woman and the man or woman she trusts with her hair.
TESSIER may have been the last colourist in Toronto using a technique for highlighting he had learned from his father and grandfather in his birthplace of France: a laborious process involving cotton balls and hours of his client's time. "Very old school," said his colleague, Nicholas VRETTAKOS. " You need a lot of patience. But he had more than 60 years experience. He was a master at what he did."
His workstation was the fourth chair in the colourist row, between Monique SANJAREI and VRETTAKOS, who both adored him. He was in the middle of things, where he liked to be.
On his lunch breaks he would look out over the salon with its cool green walls and softly lit mirrors, where women in salon wrappers, hair combed in damp furrows back from unadorned faces, feel safe, protected.
"I was addicted to him," said Sherry Eaton DREW. TESSIER streaked her hair for 37 years. "It was horrifically slow but absolute perfection."
She was stopped by strangers on the streets of Rome, Paris and London and asked for the name of her hairdresser, she said. "He was a maestro."
He turned down a request from actor Maggie Smith to do her colour when she was performing at Stratford. She wanted him to go to Stratford; he thought she should come to the salon. It didn't happen and he didn't care.
"He didn't need the accolades of doing Maggie Smith's hair," said his friend, Carole WILSON.
TESSIER became Friends with a good many of his clients. They were all blindly loyal to him: Margann ANDREWS followed TESSIER through four hairdressing salons to Tripi's, where TESSIER arrived with a file of 350 names of clients willing to pay upwards of $250 for colour and highlighting.
"He always made me feel special," ANDREWS said. "He saw the beauty in everything: people and paintings."
Carolyn WALKER began as a client in 1974. "I found him totally interesting," she said. WALKER had worked for the U.N. in Geneva they found they had much in common. "It was never gossip, never empty talk. He was a man of substance. His conversation was about ideas and culture and travel and food."
And, if asked, about his adventures.
The son of a barber and hair salon owner, and the grand_son of a wigmaker for the Paris Opera, TESSIER's own career began in the late 1920s when he apprenticed at a Paris salon from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m., when it was busy repairing the coiffeurs of the women who worked at the bordello below. He quit to join the army and see the world for the next three years. Back in Paris, he was working in the storied salon at the Georges V hotel, when World War 2 broke out.
By 1940 he was a prisoner of war, interned in a stalag near Baden-Baden, from which he escaped twice, one of those times disguised as a woman. But when he and a buddy were recaptured the second time, they were moved to a higher security Prisoner of War camp near Düsseldorf and shackled together in a small cell for weeks. As soon as they were released, they escaped again. They thought they had made it into Belgium; they hadn't and were recaptured.
Again he escaped, this time during the Allied air raid on Cologne in 1943 and with the help of the Resistance, got to England where he joined de Gaulle's Free French. On D-Day he was hitting Sword Beach with commandos, but when the war was over, he didn't settle down and return to the salon. Instead he enlisted in the French Foreign Legion because he wanted to travel.
He was posted in North Africa and later Indo-China where he was captured and held prisoner again. And one more time, he escaped. But it took him two years to get back to the Legion's outpost in Morocco, he often said.
He was ready to get back to work. He rejoined the staff at the Georges V hotel, later moved to Monte Carlo and Cannes where he famously did Marlene Dietrich's hair. He met and married a beautiful Parisienne ballerina named Lucienne with whom he had a son. But in 1957, restless again, he moved the family to Montreal where he had a new job as head of the newly opened salon at the Ritz-Carleton hotel.
But 10 years later, he moved to Toronto. Alone. His wife had died, after a long battle with cancer. And his son? TESSIER rarely told people this, but his son returned to France and refused to speak with his father, whom he accused of not spending enough time with his dying mother. TESSIER never heard from him again, although he tried on at least two occasions to locate him.
This was not one of the stories he ever told his clients; instead he would chat about his travels, the latest art show or ballet or French film in town. But only when asked. He was a quiet man by nature, focused on his work.
In Toronto he met Anna WILSON, a glamorous Scotswoman in the fashion business. They were an elegant pair, hosting sparkling dinner parties featuring French recipes prepared by TESSIER and only the best wine.
"They were modern people, so interested in everything going on in the city," recalled Carole WILSON, who married Anna WILSON's son Patrick. A francophone from Quebec, Carole WILSON was taken under TESSIER's wing. Their Friendship continued until his death, even after WILSON was divorced from his stepson and after Anna WILSON's death.
"He was like a father to me," she said. "We were his family."
TESSIER worked in some of Toronto's best-known salons -- for Vicki Runge, Gerald and Lloyd, Monroe's in the Colonnade -- before joining Mary Tripi. When he turned 80, dozens of his clients and colourists whom he had trained turned up at Bumpkin's Restaurant for a surprise party. When he turned 90, the staff at Mary Tripi took him out to dinner and gave him a surprise trip to the Greek islands. On his 91st birthday (last April 13) he slipped away to Montreal to see an art show and old Friends. Last September, he rented an apartment in Montmartre and wandered through his old haunts in Paris.
When he fell ill with pneumonia at the end of January, clients and colleagues rushed to his bedside. His hospital room resembled a garden, one said. WILSON was there every night. WALKER spent hours by his bedside.
Sherry DREW was there every day for two weeks -- "He was my friend. How could I not?" she said -- until she had to travel out of town four days before he died. She walked down the hallway weeping because she knew she would never see him again.
She and the staff of Mary Tripi are fundraising for a scholarship in TESSIER's name. It will go to a student of hair colouring. They believe it is a fitting tribute to a man who always did his best work so that women, as DREW put it, "can go out feeling wonderful and invincible."

WALKER, Johnny
With broken hearts, the WALKER family must announce the death of Johnny WALKER, on Monday, May 16, 2005. It is impossible to sum up in so few words what a man like John WALKER has meant to so many. His laugh, sense of humour, loving nature, and zest for life will be forever etched in the hearts and minds of everyone he touched so dearly. He lived for his family and for laughter. His four grand_sons - Brian, Gavin, Justin, and Joey - were the lights of his life. He was happily married for 50 years to Mary, whom he said to on his last day "I feel good, I'm going to take you dancing". He also lived for his children, Dianne and Gary, who are being greatly supported by their life partners, Jeff and Helen. He was the sweetest, kindest man that ever walked the earth. He always had a corny joke for all whom he met, whether it was a friend, or a stranger on the bench at Eglinton Square Mall. A special heartfelt thanks to the Pelzl family for their love and support during this trying time. A celebration of his life will be held in the near future. For further information please contact Gary WALKER at 416-727-7702. Donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario.

Peacefully, on July 19, 2005, in Toronto, at the age of 66. Beloved daughter of Norma. Predeceased by her father William CURRAN and brother Robert CURRAN. Left to mourn are sister-in-law Shirley CURRAN; aunts and uncles Richard SOMERVILLE, Lois SPENCER, Arch CURRAN, Margaret CURRAN, Iola CURRAN; nieces and nephews Robert CURRAN, William CURRAN, Kathleen CARON, Cameron CURRAN, Susan HAMPSON, Wayne WALKER and Rob WALKER; sixteen great-nieces and nephews; Friends the Dynna twins, and "The Orphans."Pat began her career with Canadian Automobile Association in 1962, after graduating from Ryerson Polytechnical Institute's Radio and Television Arts Program. During her 33 years career with Canadian Automobile Association, Pat was a well-respected authority on road safety, winter driving techniques, and vehicle safety. Until 1977, Pat did the traffic reports for many of Metro Toronto's top radio stations and was dubbed "The Voice of Canadian Automobile Association" she then went on to give countless radio and television interviews. Pat served on many safety-related organizations: she was a Member of the Metro Safety Council, The Canadian Association of Road Safety Professionals, a Trustee and Chairperson of the Traffic Safety Committee and Secretary and Vice Chairperson of The Better Roads Coalition. Pat took the lead and actively campaigned for seat belt legislation and promoted the concept of government approved standards for seat belts in automobiles manufactured in North America. She worked closely with Transport Canada to promote the proper use of Child Restraint Systems. Pat implemented a wide variety of safety programs for drivers and pedestrians. In 1984, Pat responded to a request from the then Ministry of Correctional Services to "Stop Impaired Probationers in Toronto" and served on The Advisory Council for "People to Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere". Perhaps one of Pat's most notable contributions to Canadian Automobile Association was her active involvement in the School Safety Patrol Program. From 1969 and until her retirement in 1995, she was the Chief Co-ordinator of the "School Safety Patrol Officers' Training Camp" which is held annually at Camp Samac in Oshawa. Each year, approximately 200 students attend the camp and in her honour, the Patricia A. Curran School Safety Patroller of the Year award is presented to one of approximately 21,000 active patrollers within the club territory. Each year, Pat presented the award to the recipient of the Patroller of the Year award. She will be greatly missed by all Canadian Automobile Association associates who had the honour of knowing her and by the students who enjoyed her presence during the camp. Thanks to Dr. A. SCHUH and staff at Princess Margaret Hospital.

KNOWLES, Charles " Chuck" Leonard (1931-2005)
The Cowboy and 'The Closer' Chuck KNOWLES passed away peacefully in his home, surrounded by family, on Saturday, September 24, 2005 after a long and courageous battle with prostate cancer. Born in Montreal, Chuck was a born entrepreneur, delivering 150 papers a day at the age of twelve. A lover of adventure and horses, as a young teen Chuck spent his summers working on ranches. One of his favourite jobs was being a trail guide at Lake Louise where he became the youngest pony guide from the east to receive his official mountain trail guide qualifications. Chuck graduated to become a bronc rider and rode in the Calgary Stampede. A graduate in agriculture at MacDonald College, Chuck invested his energy in many endeavours including selling grain dryers, developing high rise apartments, running a dry cleaning plant, training racehorses, selling Persian carpets and restaurant franchises, and promoting the odd idea that was before its time. Chuck married Australian-born June WALKER and they had three children. In his forties, they moved to Dartmouth, Nova Scotia and later Chuck moved to Toronto. Chuck inspired many people and projects. A great salesman, colleagues nicknamed him 'The Closer'. Friends say he never had a bad word to say about anybody, lived in the present, and rolled with the punches. He is loved and remembered by his brother John and wife Audrey of Montreal, his sister Elizabeth MARTIN and husband Neville of Niagara Falls, his children Wendy, John and Glenn, John's wife Ronelle, Wendy's husband Mike, Toni, grand_son Basi's mother, and grandchildren Chelsea, ShannaRose, Basi and Lily, along with nieces and nephews. A service and celebration of Chuck's life will take place at the KNOWLES residence, 265 Hedge Road in Sutton, Ontario on Saturday, October 1st at 2 p.m., telephone 905-722-1041.

Sobbing pals recall their 'rose'
Kitchen volunteer fed hungry with food from own fridge
Pattern of abuse started early in victim's life, cousin says
By Jessica LEEDER, Staff Reporter with files from Dale Anne FREED
Rose McGROARTY was known for putting the needs of others -- to eat a good meal, find shelter, have a shower -- before her own. Even among close Friends, the 46-year-old rarely talked about her aches, the causes of the bruises beneath her sweater, why she spent so much time volunteering at the Parkdale Activity-Recreation Centre, or made it her home away from home.
If only she had, mournful Friends said yesterday, her fate might have been different.
"I can't help thinking that I wish I had known what you were going through," a friend wrote to McGROARTY in a letter read at a packed memorial service at the community centre. The building houses the kitchen where McGROARTY spent six days a week the last three years volunteering and making Friends -- until she disappeared last month. Her dismembered body parts have been found throughout the city.
But a family member said it would have been out of character for the hard-luck woman to tell anyone if she was a punching bag. She learned early, the cousin said yesterday, to distract herself and not dwell on what was really going on.
"I understand that she didn't have a whole lot of money in Toronto," said Kimberly CAMPBELL, a cousin who grew up with McGROARTY in London, Ontario "The catch here is that it didn't start (in Toronto)," she told the Star in a phone interview. "But Rose Marie was the type of person, no matter what anybody did to her, she would never talk about it."
A pattern of abuse in McGROARTY's life started early, when she was about 6 or 7, CAMPBELL said. She was living in London at the time, and with her mother unable to care for her -- for reasons that are unclear -- McGROARTY moved into a boarding house run by Edith SANDERS.
In 2002, SANDERS was convicted for enslaving and torturing children, including CAMPBELL, her adopted daughter, from the 1950s to the 1980s. SANDERS' victims testified at her trial that while under her care, they were beaten with hockey sticks, tortured with a cattle prod and forced to eat animal feces. SANDERS was sentenced in January 2003 to four years in prison on four counts of assault and three counts of assault causing bodily harm. She died last year while on parole.
The conviction stemmed from allegations brought by CAMPBELL and other siblings; none of the charges that resulted in conviction related to McGROARTY.
"Rose Marie didn't have a fighting chance (in life,)" CAMPBELL said, recounting their tormented childhood. "Dysfunctional leads to dysfunctional. She didn't get the education she needed, she was abused mentally and physically, and yet she went along in life and tried to accomplish and do the best that she could.
"It sounds to me that she was doing wonderfully for what she experienced in her lifetime. She was such a forgiving person."
"This was Rose's home. This was a very important place for her," said Peggy-Gail DEHAL- RAMSON, a Parkdale community advocate.
Nearly 100 people gathered at the memorial service, one of two held for McGROARTY yesterday. Leaning on canes -- and each other and wiping wet cheeks, those whom McGROARTY treated like family lamented their great loss. At times, centre general manager Victor WILLIS had to pause to console the crowd.
"There's such a disconnect between who she was and how she died," he said. "We will not let another woman be harmed in our community."
Three women who worked alongside McGROARTY in the kitchen each day, Michelle WALDRON, Jean McGRATH and Sugar WALKER -- who had a red silk rose pinned to her top -- sobbed uncontrollably during the reading of farewell letters they wrote to their friend.
"Knowing someone like you, Rosie, you really were a 'rose,'" one letter said. "A good friend. A beautiful person. A 'rose' could not be so sweet as you!"
Greg DOWE, 25, met McGROARTY through his grandmother, Marjorie, who frequently offered up her Dunn Ave. apartment for McGROARTY when she needed a reprieve.
"This is just like killing a part of my family," DOWE said. "She's the kind of person who would give up their life in order for somebody else to live. Everything about her was to make everybody else happy."
Later in the afternoon, Father Vaughan QUINN asked 20 parishioners to remember McGROARTY and her good works at a service at the Missionaries of Charity Convent, near her apartment.
WALKER said McGROARTY had been trying to mend fences with her mother and two children, in their 20s, after years of estrangement.
After the hour-long service at the Parkdale community centre, Friends stayed to trade favourite stories about McGROARTY. She was a rare volunteer who allowed the very hungry to come back for seconds -- if the food ran out, she wasn't above running home and taking from her own fridge.
Robert WISZNIOWSKI, McGROARTY's 50-year-old common-law husband, has been charged with second-degree murder.
