Joe McBRIDE was born and raised in Barrie. As a teenager he excelled in sports, especially in the boxing ring and on the wrestling mat. He was considered a determined hard worker, manning the boilers on the Canadian Steamship, "The Edmonton", to donning the hat of an officer in the Innisfil police force. Joe was a people person and an avid businessman who worked for several petroleum companies as owner / operator for over 25 years. He carried on "old school" business ethics, where he was known to close a deal with a simple handshake. Joe's love of horses led him to be involved with most aspects of the Standardbred industry including owner, trainer and tack shop operator; Joe's passion and insight into the harness horse industry led to the creation of the thriving family run business, "McBride Trailers" located in Barrie. Joseph McBRIDE touched many lives and will surely be missed by all.

Founder of local street ministry dies
Funeral Saturday for Bill CHERRY, who started Anchor Christian Ministries in Owen Sound
By Jim ALGIE, Thursday, March 17, 2005, Page A1
A funeral service is to be held in Niagara Falls, New York Saturday for a man best known in this area for feeding free Christmas dinners to hundreds of people in Owen Sound over 20 years.
Rev. Bill CHERRY died suddenly after a heart attack and stroke last Thursday. He was 62.
He and his wife, Reverend Edith CHERRY, moved to Niagara Falls from Owen Sound five years ago.
“It was extremely sudden, that's what made it so hard,” Edith CHERRY said in an interview from her Niagara Falls home Wednesday.
“He had a massive heart attack Wednesday morning at 10 o'clock and just as they were putting in the angioplasty he had a stroke.&rdquo
In recent years the clergy couple had become involved with Rainbow House, a community ministry in Niagara Falls, where they originally met. The married in 1999 and moved to Niagara Falls in early 2000, where Mr. CHERRY had taken up graduate studies in theology and counselling.
Mr. CHERRY was a former U.S. military medic and hospital orderly. He had begun working as a chaplain for veterans and members of the American Legion, Edith CHERRY said.
Mr. CHERRY was also the founder of Owen Sound's Anchor Christian Ministries, a street charity that provided free turkey dinners to all comers on Christmas Day.
“He was always giving, always loving,” Edith CHERRY said. “He would give to his own detriment; he would give anything and everything and not think about his own needs.&rdquo
Mr. CHERRY's selflessness was a consistent observation by his Owen Sound contacts. Ruth MEPSTEAD and members of her family helped prepare and serve Anchor Christian Ministries dinners.
“He didn't really think about himself, he thought about everybody else,” MEPSTEAD said.
“He would go without so somebody else could have something. He often would come to our place for a sandwich because he wouldn't have anything for himself.&rdquo
There were as many as 200 people for dinner in 2000, when the CHERRYs last returned to Owen Sound as participants. MEPSTEAD recalls dinners with as many as 375 people.
“He was a man with a big heart and sometimes too big,” said Rev. Bill HARRIS, who has carried on Anchor Christian Ministries at local nursing homes.
“It was not only street people, but people at Christmas and Thanksgiving and Easter who weren't going to have anybody to celebrate with,&rdquo HARRIS said.
The memory of his own lonely Christmases during military service in Germany provided Mr. CHERRY's original motivation. The tradition began in the early 1980s when Mr. CHERRY, his first wife, Sandra, and their two children, Andrew and Beth Ann, held Christmas at the New Horizon Coffee House, which in the 900 block of 2nd Avenue East.
Mr. CHERRY grew up in the Salvation Army in downtown Detroit. He was commissioned in the Salvation Army but later resigned and eventually became ordained by correspondence through an independent American church.
In Owen Sound, his was a ministry of the streets.
“I have found it the greatest ministry going because there is so much need,” he once told a Sun Times reporter.
“Some guys are walking the streets for three or four days and because they are the rough drunks, nobody wants them. They have a hard time keeping out of trouble.&rdquo
Asked why he bothered, Mr. CHERRY referred to the Bible.
“When you do it unto the least of these my Friends you do it unto me,” he said paraphrasing Matthew.
“We don't thump the Gospel at them, we give them the message that Jesus is the reason for the season and we offer the hope of the Gospel.&rdquo
A funeral service is to be held Saturday beginning at 11 a.m. at Zajac Funeral Home at 319 24th Street, Niagara Falls, New York. Mr. CHERRY is to be interred Monday, March 21, at Bath National Cemetery in Bath, New York.

Popular horse rider dies after fall
'You couldn't meet a nicer person' said friend Karen FOSTER
'She never had anything bad to say about anything'
By Jim ALGIE, Sun Times Staff, and Don CROSBY, Sun Times Correspondent, Page A1
Patricia MOORE died doing what she loved.
"She loved her horses more than anything except her grandchildren," said a woman who works in the Holstein General store.
A well-known Mount Forest-area rider, MOORE, 45, died after a fall from her
horse during during barrel race practice at A-Bar-K Rodeo farm near Holstein early Wednesday evening.
MOORE had two grandchildren, one-year-old Breanna and five-year-old Alex. She and her husband Don took the grandchildren to Disney last winter. The couple were accomplished riders who competed at events in Canada and the U.S.
Last February the MOOREs held a fundraiser for Pat's father, Andy McROBBIE, to help raise money for a new house. His house was destroyed by fire.
"You couldn't meet a nicer person. She never had anything bad to say about anything, never heard her complain about work... a happy go lucky person," said friend Karen FOSTER. "It makes you wonder how life is fair."
MOORE had completed a practice run on a ranch partly owned by FOSTER.
The horse she was riding failed to stop as expected, witnesses: told police. The animal, which belonged to MOORE, ran onto a small concrete slab where it lost its footing and fell, Grey County Ontario Provincial Police spokesman Senior Const. Steve STARR said in an interview.
In the fall, MOORE struck her head on the concrete. She suffered what STARR described as a serious head injury.
MOORE had been part of a group which met regularly at the farm to practise competitive rodeo manoeuvres.
Other participants provided first-aid to the injured rider until paramedics, including an advanced life support unit from Palmerston, arrived.
Air ambulance took MOORE directly to Hamilton General Hospital at about 8: 20 p.m. She was pronounced dead shortly after midnight at the hospital.
The barrel race requires horse and rider to complete a timed dash, weaving among a series of empty barrels placed in a consistent pattern.
MOORE was not wearing protective headgear at the time of her fall, STARR said.
"We're just kind of in limbo here," said FOSTER, her voice cracking with emotion as she walked from the scene of the accident to the house where people who had been with MOORE the night before were grieving.

Second body found in Georgian Bay
Search continues for third man still missing
By Jim ALGIE, Sun Times staff
Searchers found another body Monday evening, the second of three men who went missing while sailing on Georgian Bay Friday.
Ontario Provincial Police Const. Dave MEYER said Monday night the body of Karol LASKOWSKI, 23, of Hamilton, was discovered approimately six-and-a-half kilometres from where Adam MUSIALKAEWACZ's was discovered Sunday night.
Still missing is Rafal SIENKIEWICZ, 17 of Dabrowiec, Poland.
Both LASKOWSKI and MUSIALKAEWACZ were wearing lifejackets and wetsuits, MEYER said.
MEYER said LASKOWSKI's body was found about 14.5 km northeast of Cape Croker at about 7: 30 p.m. Monday
MUSIALKAEWACZ was found eight kilometres northeast of Cape Croker.
The three were last seen alive in a small, racing-type sailboat at about 7 p.m. Friday near Cabot head on the Bruce Peninsula. It had been attempting to tack toward shore at the time.
The three Friends were vacationing in the area along with LASKOWSKI's father, who reported the vessel missing at about 11 a.m. Saturday.
Canadian Forces officials at Rescue Co-ordination Centre Trenton dispatched a C-130 Hercules aircraft and a Cormorant helicopter. The search also included a provincial police helicopter and two police boats, Canadian Coast Guard maritime co-ordinator Dana WATLING said Monday.
As well, three Coast Guard vessels and a private boat have participated in the search, WATLING said. By late Monday afternoon, searchers had found no sign of the vessel, WATLING said.
“We're looking for survivors, that's what we're looking for and so we go along and make sure that the area has been covered,&rdquo he said before the second body was found. “We'll keep searching until every possibility has been exhausted that the persons could still be found alive.&rdquo
So far, weather has co-operated with the search, which has continued night and day since the vessel was reported missing. WATLING would not say how long the work will continue.
