Joe GRIGAS: a 'natural soldier'
'International Joe' had a love of travel, a love of action and the respect of his Friends.
By Jael WONG, and Peter GEIGEN- MILLER, Free Press Reporter
Before he died, Joseph (International Joe) GRIGAS had his favourite dish -- sardines. The decorated war veteran developed a liking for the fish more than 60 years ago after he was taken prisoner during the Spanish Civil War.
He and his fellow prisoners -- 150 Americans in all -- were given nothing to eat for 13 months but sardines and beans.
"Joe was a survivor, so Joe learned to like sardines and beans and he ate them with relish. For the rest of his life, sardines and beans were his favourite dishes," said retired Capt. Robert WALSH.
He met GRIGAS two years ago through the Royal Canadian Regiment Association.
GRIGAS -- dubbed International Joe because he had been to many countries -- died March 8 at Parkwood Hospital in London at age An American, he fought in the Second World War as part of the London-based Royal Canadian Regiment.
He was awarded a Distinguished Conduct Medal -- one level below the Victoria Cross -- for leading a group of soldiers in capturing two enemy machine-gun nests in Sicily in 1943.
But no one at the Royal Canadian Regiment knew what happened to GRIGAS for 58 years after the war and it was thought he was dead. In fact, there's a gold brick at the Royal Canadian Regiment Museum in London in his memory, said Capt. Duncan McMILLAN.
So McMILLAN was intrigued when he learned GRIGAS was in a veterans' shelter in the United States and wanted to come back to Canada.
McMILLAN and two veterans went to see GRIGAS on Veterans' Day in 2000 and confirmed his identity. The Royal Canadian Regiment arranged to have GRIGAS moved to Parkwood Hospital in June 2003, where he lived for the past two years.
A native of Worcester, Massachusetts., with Lithuanian roots, GRIGAS was "a natural soldier at heart," said WALSH, going wherever the action was.
"He liked to travel a lot and he liked adventure and when he didn't have that, he didn't have much of a life."
Tara O'CONNOR, who befriended GRIGAS at the Worcester veterans shelter in 1994, said he lived a vagabond existence, spending most of the year "in the weeds," a term explained as "anywhere you lay your head at night."
Once age finally caught up with GRIGAS, O'CONNOR helped him find an apartment in a complex for the elderly.
It was not an easy adjustment.
"He wouldn't sleep in his new bed, telling me it was too civilized," said O'CONNOR. "And on more than one occasion, I found him cooking a can of beans directly on the electric stove top."
After his release from the Spanish prison camp in 1939, he returned to the U.S., but didn't stay long. In 1940, he went to Montreal to enlist in the Canadian Army because the U.S. was not yet involved in the Second World War. He joined Canadian troops in England.
He served until he was injured in 1944 and returned to the U.S. For the next 50 years, he worked at odd jobs.
GRIGAS never married and didn't make Friends easily.
"But once he accepted you as a friend, he was a very good friend," said WALSH.
McMILLAN agrees, noting he has heard praises for GRIGAS's character from veterans of the Spanish Civil War.
"When he was held in captivity by the Nationalists, by the Fascists, he was regarded as someone who was trustworthy," said McMILLAN. "You didn't have to watch your back with him."

Police shoot man after woman stabbed to death
By Jan WONG, Monday, May 30, 2005, Page A9
A 62-year-old registered nurse was stabbed to death Friday night and one of her daughters was repeatedly stabbed in their townhouse on Sheppard Avenue West. A man was then shot dead at the scene by police minutes later.
Police said he was asked to drop his weapon and refused.
The nurse, Pandora WHITE/WHYTE, was reportedly arguing with a man, described as both her "adoptive brother" and "adoptive son." Neighbours said Ms. WHITE/WHYTE then phoned one of her daughters, Marcia ALLYNE, to help her. But before Ms. ALLYNE, 37, arrived, the man, 34, stabbed Ms. WHITE/WHYTE to death.
Police said last night Ms. ALLYNE was in critical condition. The province's Special Investigations Unit has been called in.

83-year-old hit-and-run victim dies
Dad of ex-Tory minister killed on crosswalk
'Sad time' for family of David TSUBOUCHI
By Paul CHOI, Staff Reporter
David TSUBOUCHI says he's not angered with the way his 83-year-old father died.
The victim of a hit-and-run Friday morning, Thomas TSUBOUCHI suffered massive internal injuries to the head and torso after a car hit him on a marked crosswalk near Huntingwood Dr. and Brimley Rd. TSUBOUCHI succumbed to his injuries in the presence of grieving relatives at Sunnybrook hospital about 4 p.m. yesterday.
David TSUBOUCHI, Ontario's former solicitor-general and a former provincial Conservative cabinet minister, says his family is not bitter, just saddened by the loss.
"We're not people who get angry," he said. "We don't go out and say, 'We need to have vengeance.' But it's a pretty sad time for all of us right now."
There had been a glimmer of hope Saturday for the family when doctors said the elder TSUBOUCHI's condition appeared to stabilize after surgery, even though he remained in a coma.
But later, doctors said TSUBOUCHI's condition worsened and his internal systems appeared to be shutting down.
"It's not for (lack) of trying. These are the best doctors for trauma in this country. And I know for a fact they've done everything they could for my father," David TSUBOUCHI said. "But no matter how much you do expect it, you don't expect it."
Yesterday, police continued to urge the driver of the vehicle to turn himself in.
"Basically, what we've been saying all along to the driver is to look for a lawyer and surrender (yourself)," said Sgt. Edmund WONG of traffic services.
Investigators are looking at surveillance footage that shows a car hitting a pedestrian. Police are looking for a light-coloured vehicle that may have a damaged hood and windshield.
Meanwhile, TSUBOUCHI said he is disturbed by the number of hit-and-runs taking place on Toronto's streets. He said drivers should be taking more responsibility for their actions.
On Thursday, an 87-year-old woman was struck and killed while she crossed Wilson Ave. near Bathurst St. On Friday, an unidentified pedestrian suffered serious injuries after being hit by a car at Scarlett Rd. near Kingdom St. The driver fled the scene and the pedestrian has since fallen into a coma.
"There's too much of this going on," TSUBOUCHI said. "The real tragedy in this is that someone hits an elderly man and drags him for 70 or 90 feet and leaves him to die on the street. That's the crime."
Saddened as he was by his father's death, TSUBOUCHI said he and his family would try to move on and remember the legacy his dad left behind.
A Japanese immigrant, the senior TSUBOUCHI came to Canada and worked two jobs to support his family, even in the face of immense prejudice, TSUBOUCHI said.

WONG, Frederick Henry
With great sadness the family announces the passing of Fred on Sunday, October 30, 2005, in his 76th year. Beloved and devoted husband and friend of 50 years to his wife Barbara. Loving and cherished father and best buddy of son Gregory and daughter Andrea. We will miss his love, friendly guidance and indomitable spirit and treasure all the beautiful memories of our lives together. He was selfless in support of his family. His motto in life "to thine own self be true" governed his life decisions, always being fair and giving the other person the benefit of the doubt. We will always find ways to embrace his life in our every day. Fred will be remembered by all who knew him as a consummate gentleman, a man of integrity, a true and noble friend. A fishing, hunting and car enthusiast, his happiest moments were when catching fish accompanied by either his son or daughter, discussing the latest trends in cars with Gregory and recounting his past duck, deer and moose hunting trips with his dear departed friend Austin McCUE. Another passion was planning and working in his garden to make a place of beauty to enjoy with his family. Survived by sister Helen LEE (Edward) and brother James (Mae.) Loved and loving son-in-law of Margaret LUM. Brother-in-law of Robert LUM (Dorothy) and Doreen WONG (Stan.) Uncle to three nieces and four nephews. He will be missed especially by nephew David LUM with whom Uncle Fred had many car talkathons. Predeceased by his father and mother Henry and Nellie WONG and brother Douglas Gordon (the late Joan). At Fred's request, a private family celebration of his life was held on Friday, November 4, 2005. Cremation. If so desired, memorial donations may be made to Southlake Regional Health Centre Foundation, 596 Davis Drive, Newmarket, L3Y 2P9 or a charity of your choice and would be appreciated by the family.
