WALSH, Garnet Ralph
of Markdale passed away on Saturday, April 9, 2005 after succumbing to smoke inhalation as a result of a small grass fire at his farm in Euphrasia Township. He is sadly missed by his wife of 52 years, Frances (THIBAUDEAU) WALSH. Sorrow surrounds his family members Valerie BROWN of Meaford, Barb and Manfred VOSS of Dundalk, Ralph and Sandy WALSH and Bill WALSH of Markdale. Garnet is also missed dearly by his five grandchildren Carol BROWN, Stephanie VOSS, Wendy, Emily and Charlie WALSH. The suddenness of his death was felt by his many nieces and nephews both from out West and in Southern Ontario. Garnet was the first born child to William & Queenie (BOWEN) WALSH of Markdale. He is predeceased by a sister Iris MILLS and her husband Glen of St. Catharines. He leaves a younger sister, Madeline MCINNES/MCINNIS of Edmonton, Alberta to mourn his passing. Garnet enjoyed his life as a farmer mostly, occasionally taking extra jobs picking apples or working at the local ski hills. He enjoyed time spent with family and Friends. In his later years he would often be seen on Sat. nights cheering on his favorite racers at Varney racetrack. Upon retiring, he kept busy on the farm helping Ralph and Bill with various jobs. Garnet was a genuine, caring, thoughtful and hard-working character. The family takes much comfort in believing that Garnet's death was not seen as tragic, as he got his ultimate wish to leave this world with his boots on, working on his well-loved farm. Visitation was held on Tues. April 12, 2005 and the family was overwhelmed by the out-pouring of support and comfort shown by family and Friends. A fitting tribute to this well-liked and well-respected man. A private funeral was held at the May Funeral Home on Wed. April 13, 2005 with Reverend Mark WAUGH offering words of comfort. A short remembrance was read by daughter-in-law, Sandy WALSH. Afterwards family and Friends along with Reverend WAUGH shared comforting words & thoughts at an interment of his cremated remains in the bush on his farm at a pre-chosen location cherished by Garnet. The family would like to thank all who made donations to the Markdale Hospital and Diabetes Assoc., sent flowers, brought food and patiently waited so long throughout the visitation to offer condolences. Special thanks go out to Grant and Brigitte MAY for their wonderful support, to Reverend Mark WAUGH for his words and extra time, to Doreen CARGOE and Marilyn WARD for help with the lunch and to Steve RUTLEDGE, Rob CAMERON, Scott COLVILLE for their support and help in carrying out Garnet's wishes.

Former Owen Sound mayor dies
Bob RUTHERFORD served the city for nearly 30 years
By Jonathon JACKSON, Saturday, March 05, 2005
Bob RUTHERFORD, whose career in municipal politics spanned nearly 30 years and included 16 years as Owen Sound's mayor, has died. He was 76.
Mayor Ruth LOVELL announced his death Friday during council's budget deliberations.
Mr. RUTHERFORD had been in Owen Sound hospital for a few weeks before he died there. The nature of his illness was not announced.
“I will certainly remember him as a very effective and personable mayor,” LOVELL said Friday. “He will be a person who is very missed.&rdquo
“He just loved this community,” said Coun. Arlene WRIGHT, who worked with Mr. RUTHERFORD at Rutherford Signs for 20 years.
“A true politician, dedicated,” summed up Gail NORRIS, who has worked for six Owen Sound mayors. “When he talked, people listened to him.&rdquo
Mr. RUTHERFORD was first elected to city council in 1962 and became mayor in 1965. He served in that position until being defeated in 1974 by Warren LOUGHEED. Mr. RUTHERFORD returned to office in 1976, ousting LOUGHEED in the next election.
He was mayor until 1982, when he was defeated largely due to his support for what was then a controversial plan to replace the city's downtown arena with what is now called the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre.
After the arena was condemned due to a structural problem, Mr. RUTHERFORD engineered a deal with A and P to build a new grocery store on the site of the old arena. He then helped push through an application which helped the new community centre qualify for an expiring grant program with only one day to spare.
But in a time of soaring interest rates and a poor economy, fears of higher taxes because of the Bayshore's cost resulted in Mr. RUTHERFORD's defeat and the election of Ovid JACKSON as mayor.
“The most wonderful thing that I ever got for the city... was the thing that killed me,” Mr. RUTHERFORD said on election night in 1982.
“I have no regrets. I would not have changed anything along the way.&rdquo
NORRIS, who still works in the mayor's office, recalls clearly a conversation she and Mr. RUTHERFORD had which she thinks says a lot about him.
“ ‘Gail, I'm going to vote that we build the Bayshore because the grants are available now and we need a new arena.' But he said, ‘I can tell you, I'll probably lose the election, ' ” she said. “What always amazed me was the day they opened the building and Bob was a guest, they gave him a standing ovation. You know, he had the vision.&rdquo
In 1985, as he had done in 1976, he challenged the man who had defeated him. JACKSON won re-election and Mr. RUTHERFORD vowed he was done with politics.
“I'm finished,” he said at the time. “I'll never run as a candidate again.&rdquo
It was a promise he didn't keep. He ran for a spot on city council in 1988, finished fifth in a field of 11 and served Owen Sound for three more years.
WRIGHT, who at one time was also Mr. RUTHERFORD's neighbour, said she always appreciated how he was a blue-collar worker who slipped comfortably into the mayor's chair.
“He was just an all-round guy and very well liked.&rdquo
He was president of the Association of Municipalities of Ontario in his final term on council, she noted, and he always kept abreast of goings-on at city hall. In fact, he dropped into city hall a year ago during budget deliberations.
NORRIS visited Mr. RUTHERFORD last Sunday, shortly after she'd heard he was in the hospital.
“We had a nice visit but I knew that he was extremely ill... But he still had the twinkle in his eye and the smiles.&rdquo
The arrival of some of Owen Sound's industrial plants also coincided with Mr. RUTHERFORD's terms of office, NORRIS added.
The family released a list of 18 clubs and boards to which Mr. RUTHERFORD belonged, ranging from the board of governors at Georgian College to the North Star Masonic Lodge to the Owen Sound Jaycees. His family declined to comment on Mr. RUTHERFORD's passing in a note sent from Breckenridge-Ashcroft Funeral Home.
In an interview on the eve of the 2000 municipal election, Mr. RUTHERFORD reflected on his political life.
“I had love for the city and I wanted to get involved,” said Mr. RUTHERFORD, who owned a downtown sign business for many years. “I was fortunate enough to be able to have the time, as my father and my stepbrother both said they'd run the shop while I worked at running the city.
“It's something you really have to love and enjoy, because you do take a lot of criticism. You're close to the people. They can pick up the phone and phone you and tell you what they think.&rdquo
He tried unsuccessfully to unseat both Progressive Conservative member of Parliament Gus MITGES and Liberal member of provincial parliament Eddie SARGENT. SARGENT had preceded him as mayor.
“I ran against Eddie a couple of times, but that's what you call ass-burning learning,” he said with a laugh.
Robert Edward RUTHERFORD is survived by his wife, Shirley J. RUTHERFORD (née EBY,) was father of Ross WARD and his wife Penny, Brent RUTHERFORD, Catherine and her husband Bob WEBBER and Rahnda YULE. He leaves eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, his brother Tim RUTHERFORD and his wife Violet. Predeceased by his brothers Paul, Jerry and Peter.
A private family service has been held. Friends are invited to a come-and-go reception in the Bay Room of the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, March 13. Donations to the Grey Bruce Regional Health Centre Foundation M.R.I. fund or to the Shriner's Hospital were what Mr. RUTHERFORD wished.

Collision with tour bus kills man from Wisconsin
The bus was taking seniors to the Stratford Festival.
By Norman DE BONO, Free Press Reporter, Sun., October 30, 2005
A Wisconsin man was killed yesterday when his car was struck by a tour bus filled with senior citizens on their way to the Stratford Festival.
Arthur WARD was driving west on Egremont Drive north of Strathroy about 10 a.m. when he ran a red light and was hit broadside by the bus travelling north on Centre Road, Middlesex Ontario Provincial Police said.
"All indications are, at this point, the driver of the car was at fault," Ontario Provincial Police Sgt. David REKTOR said.
"He went though the intersection in broad daylight and failed to negotiate the red light."
Police believe WARD died instantly, REKTOR said.
The tour bus was carrying 43 seniors from Michigan. They were taken to Strathroy Middlesex General Hospital where four were treated for minor injuries and released.
"They were mostly just bumps and bruises and were released. They handled things pretty well," said a nursing supervisor who declined to give her name.
Ontario Provincial Police ensured a school bus was contracted to drive the seniors to the festival. The hospital contacted victims services and had them speak to the seniors about the crash, the nursing supervisor said.
"They went right on the bus and spoke to them, we gave them sandwiches and refreshments and sent them on their way."
Ontario Provincial Police also wanted to make certain the seniors were not traumatized by the crash, REKTOR said.
"We wanted to make sure they were able to deal with the trauma. Some were very distraught at the scene. There was a lot of damage. The car was annihilated."
WARD, from Gay Mills, Wisc., was in Middlesex to visit his son, who lives in the region.
Charles GELBARD, Emergency Medical Services acting duty manager for the ambulance service Thames Emergency Medical Services Middlesex-London, was at the scene helping seniors after the crash.
"They were really very appreciative of the bus driver, of the fact he kept the bus on the road after the accident."

Teenager killed in Hwy. 400 crash
By Bob BRUTON, Friday, August 19, 2005
A teen driver was killed and two of his three passengers seriously injured in a car crash Thursday morning on the southbound ramp of the Highway 400 extension, just north of Barrie.
Scott BRETT, 18, of Uxbridge died at the scene. Nicolas CORBETT, 20, Andrew WARD and Kyle TURNER, both 18 -- also all from Uxbridge were taken to Barrie's Royal Victoria Hospital by ambulance.
CORBETT and WARD were later airlifted to Sunnybrook and Women's College Health Sciences Centre in Toronto with serious injuries. CORBETT is now listed in good condition, WARD in fair condition. TURNER is listed in fair condition at Royal Victoria Hospital.
After seeing a blue 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier down the right-hand side embankment along the tree line at the scene, a tractor-trailer driver called 911 Emergency at about 4: 11 a.m.
“They obviously lost control on the ramp,” said Const. Tom EDGAR of Barrie Ontario Provincial Police, who also said there is no indication that alcohol was a factor.
Ontario Provincial Police say the Cavalier crashed through the guardrail -- taking out four of its posts but not the metal cables went down an embankment and slid into a stand of trees.
One was broken off and only a stump remained, while some smaller trees were splintered or sheared off by the vehicle.
Police say three of the four, and possibly all of the car's occupants, were not wearing seat-belts.
“They (the ones not wearing seat-belts) were ejected before the car hit the trees. All of the occupants were (found) on this side of the road,” said Const. EDGAR, gesturing toward the crash site. “One was on the bank, the other two between here and the bush.&rdquo
Markings made by investigators at the scene indicate the Cavalier was in the ramp's left-hand lane, crossed over to the right and then went through the guardrail.
The car is a write-off. Its front window peeled back, its roof and sides crushed. Firefighters used the Jaws of Life to remove one of the doors.
Highway 400's southbound extension was closed for the Ontario Provincial Police investigation at 4: 30 a.m. and re-opened at 11: 30 a.m. Motorists were rerouted to Forbes Road and onto Highway Investigators are asking anyone who witnessed the crash to call Ontario Provincial Police at 726-6484 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
Mounting Death Toll
• George LABBE, 67, of Huntsville died the morning of August 9 after his Jeep Cherokee collided with a Pontiac Grand Prix driven by April SOBISCH, 31, of Alliston. LABBE was travelling south in the northbound lanes of Highway 400 in Barrie. SOBISCH is recovering in a Toronto hospital. Her infant son, Owen, wasn't injured. Ontario Provincial Police are investigating.
• Melissa GOMEZ, 21, of Toronto died last Friday evening in hospital after the GMC Envoy she was a passenger in rolled as it entered the southbound lanes of Highway 400, just south of Highway 89, and was struck by another vehicle.
Ontario Provincial Police say none of the Envoy's four occupants, including GOMEZ, were wearing seat-belts.

At the Toronto Western Hospital on August 20th, 2005, loving husband of Eleanor (STRANG.) Proud father of David (Katie TRUSLER) of Toronto and Susan (Tim MATSELL) of Banff. Doting "Poppa" to Connor, Scottie, and Evan WARD who gave him much joy. Caring brother of Barbara SEYMOUR of St. Catharines and admired Uncle to her children Carolyn, Ward, Marion, and Rick; Brother-in-Law and dear friend of Dr. William STRANG and his wife Pat of Chattanooga, Tennessee and close Uncle to their sons Mark, Paul, John and Drew. A special brother of Ardith RALPH of Vancouver.
An H.B.A. and M.B.A. graduate of the Richard Ivey School of Business, Bruce enjoyed a very long and successful career as a senior partner with Woods Gordon (now Ernst and Young) as head of their Executive Search Practice and as National Director of Human Resources Consulting. He then joined Heidrick and Struggles Inc., a top tier international search firm, as Partner and an Elected Director. Considered by many to be the "Dean of Recruiters", Bruce served as a mentor to many in that discipline.
Bruce was a devoted sports fan -- whether as a participant or spectator. A Mustang alumnus in Football and Wrestling, Bruce loved to play golf at the London Hunt and Country Club, and play doubles tennis with "Gutsy" at the Badminton and Racquet Club. His true passion, however, was skiing with Friends and family at Devil's Glen Ski Club in Collingwood.

Friends may also leave messages for the family by visiting www.fawcettfuneralhomes.com.
Although Bruce will be profoundly missed by all who loved him, we take comfort in the fact that he will be enjoying the odd martini with Jimmy Fisher and playing golf on the fairways above.

LOEB, Dr. Lazarus J., M.D., F.R.C.P.C., F.A.C.P., F.C.C.P., F.A.A.A.I., F.A.C.A.A.I.
Highly regarded and well loved Fort Worth allergist, died unexpectedly November 1, from complications after knee surgery. Dr. LOEB had practiced in Fort Worth since 1982. Described as the 'Dean of Texas Allergy' by Texas Monthly Magazine, his credo was 'Always listen to the patient.' As a teaching professor he believed in only doing for the patient what you could justify to the student. As a dedicated physician for forty six years, he was not above making house calls or meeting distressed patients at his office late at night. He avidly kept abreast of developments in medical practice and therapeutics. Dr. LOEB lived to practice medicine he relished challenging medical problems and had a gift for diagnosis.
Dr. LOEB's medical training began after obtaining a Bachelor of Science degree in Bacteriology from McGill University in Montreal. He proceeded to the University of Western Ontario where he earned a Master of Science degree in Microbiology while he lectured medical classes in bacteriology. While a lecturer he earned his medical degree. He graduated cum laude earning five awards in addition to A.O.A. Honor Medical Society. Fascinated by allergy, his post-graduate training was at Roosevelt Hospital in New York City under Dr. Robert A. Cooke, the father of modern allergy practice in North America. He returned to Ottawa, Canada, to found a five doctor allergy practice and became head of the Allergy Department at the University of Ottawa. He authored more than 60 journal articles on allergy, bacteriology and medical practice as well as chapters in medical texts.
Always active in medical organizations, Dr. LOEB encouraged physicians to remain independent of government control and insurance limitations and to vigilantly maintain the quality of medical care. He was elected president of the Canadian Academy of Allergy in 1965 and in 1977 he was elected president of the Ontario Medical Association. He later served on the board of directors of the Canadian Medical Association.
After immigrating to Texas in 1980, Dr. LOEB continued his involvement with medical organizations including the Tarrant County Medical Association, the Texas Medical Association, Texas State Board of Medical Examiners, Texas Allergy Asthma and Immunology Society, and the Medicare Carrier Advisory Committee of Texas. Dr. LOEB was a fellow of the Royal College of Physician-Canada and a fellow of both the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology and the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. He trained numerous residents and fellows in allergy as a clinical professor at Southwestern University Medical Center in Dallas and the University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth. In 1997 he received the Outstanding Teacher Award in Allergy and Immunology from Utah Southwestern.
Dr. LOEB's favorite hobby was flying. He obtained a commercial pilot's license early in his practice. Accompanied by Mrs. LOEB, also a pilot, he established flying doctor clinics in Northern Ontario. Jackie LOEB was his partner in managing their medical practice and life together. Laz was an incorrigible punster and could always provide a light-hearted observation. He loved food which was a good match as Jackie had her own gourmet television program in Canada. Laz studied broadly and would generously venture an opinion on science, politics, the arts, crosswords or anything. He felt his best investments were in people and he was well loved in return. His kindness and respect are well remembered by family and Friends.

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.
