BARBOSA, JOSE
It is with great sadness that the Barbosa family announces Jose BARBOSA's passing, after a courageous battle of an unexpected illness, at St. Joseph's Hospital, on April 14, 2005. Jose was a kind, gentle and hardworking husband, father, and (great) grandfather. He will be missed by his family and Friends. He leaves behind his loving wife of 57 years, Maria CONCEICAO; children Margaret (Joseph BORGES), Guilherme (Teresa SOUSA), Helen (Lideberto FERREIRA) and Isabel; many grandchildren Richard (Lenny GONCALVES,) Jennifer (Donny GILLINGHAM,) William (Andra DEVERS,) Larraine, Alicia and Aidan; and only great-grandchild Seven GILLINGHAM. The family will receive Friends at the Cardinal Funeral Home, 366 Bathurst Street, Toronto, on Sunday, April 17 from 6-9 p.m. and Monday April 18 from 2-9 p.m. Funeral Mass to be held at Santa Cruz Roman Catholic Church at 9 a.m. Tuesday, April 19, 2005, 142 Argyle Street, Toronto. In memory of Jose, if desired, donations to The Canadian Lung Association would be appreciated. "Even though our family has been hectic at times, it is the glue that holds us together. It is the haven we seek when there is trouble and the place where we truly celebrate the good times. Family is important because it is like a ship's rudder on the sea of life... without it, you are lost adrift, not knowing truly who you are or where you are going..." Assim, testemundo a todos vos, Ont mesmo sentido que Ont meu avô me transmitiu...sonhos de felicidade...sonhos de alegria...e do infinito mas acima de tudo o amor.

The King of Danforth-Woodbine
Butcher knew customers' names, gave jobs to kids
Realtors touted shop as a plus in neighbourhood
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
For one week last November, the neighbourhood around Danforth and Woodbine Aves. was dipped in gloom.
Many people stood on the sidewalk outside Royal Beef -- a neighbourhood mecca since 1992 -- waiting for the passage of the funeral cortege from nearby St. Brigid's Church. Close to 2,000 more had gone to the church to say goodbye.
Paul ESTRELA, 46, their butcher and their buddy, had died.
They were both ESTRELA's customers and his Friends -- there was never any differentiating. A big, handsome guy with a boom box of a voice, he'd hail them by name from behind the counter at the back of his butcher shop.
"No lawyers today. We're not serving lawyers," ESTRELA would holler at Jay JOSEFO, a regular Saturday morning customer and a lawyer. There he'd be, grinning, framed by the stuffed animal heads on the wall behind him -- all mementoes from mentors, he'd say, insisting he never picked up a gun himself.
Once ESTRELA demanded to see a note from JOSEFO's wife before selling him rib steaks cut as thick as JOSEFO wanted. And so JOSEFO's wife Wendy wrote ESTRELA a note: "Dear Paul: Jay has my permission to have Jay-sized steaks."
"He had fun and you had such fun going there," JOSEFO said, recalling ESTRELA.
Customers came from all over the city to the shop ESTRELA ran with his wife Carmen. Others came every week from Collingwood, while some trekked to Toronto once a year from Buffalo. Most Saturdays, Royal Beef seemed like a crowded and very lively social club, with customers greeting each other in between kibitzing with Paul and catching up with Carmen.
Local real-estate agents often talked up Royal Beef as a great reason to buy a house in the area. ESTRELA was hailed in Toronto Life magazine, as well as in this newspaper, as a treasure -- one of the city's best butchers, an old-fashioned, savvy professional. He refused to sell meat that hadn't been aged 30 days, and once told a reporter he could cut meat four different ways: Italian, Canadian, German and English.
ESTRELA named his store after the Royal Winter Fair, where he won a butcher contest in 1982.
"He will be so missed," said Lucie JOHNSON, who first came into the store with her kids in strollers. "My kids are Royal Beef babies. That's what all his customers called our kids. Once you came here, you couldn't buy meat at a supermarket."
ESTRELA made a point of giving jobs to kids from the neighbourhood. "They would come here from school and tell Paul they wanted to work here, always because of Paul," said Carmen, who runs the shop's deli section.
For six years, Duncan McIROY and his brother walked by the store on their way to school. "Paul would be opening up and he'd toss me an orange," he recalled. McIROY started going into the store for sandwiches -- "I wasn't a big fan of the ones my mom made and it was $2 for the best sandwich you've ever seen" -- and they started talking.
One Halloween, ESTRELA pointed to a huge pumpkin at the front of the store and told McIROY he'd give him a job if he could figure out a way to take it home. McIROY ran home, grabbed his brother and a wagon, and the pair heaved and hauled it up and took it away. ESTRELA kept his part of the deal, hiring the 13-year-old McIROY six months later.
"My main job was to clean up, fetch him his cappuccinos and let him yell at me," McIROY, now 21, said about the man he calls his best friend. "If he had been as big as his voice, he'd be 8 feet tall."
ESTRELA was also 13 when he started working at the meat counter of Darrigos, a now-defunct Italian chain of supermarkets. He had just moved to Canada from Portugal with his parents and six sisters, and he learned not only to slaughter and skin animals but to speak Italian. That came in handy when he began courting a 16-year-old Carmen, whose Italian mother was a customer at the store. They married when she was 17 and he 19.
"My parents still held hands," said their daughter Bridgette, 22. She worked with her father in the shop on Sundays -- retail down time they spent talking and just "hanging out," she said. The ESTRELAs also have a son John, 26.
ESTRELA spent 11 years as a butcher at a Dominion grocery store until he opened his own place on Valentine's Day in 1984, on Woodmount Ave., around the corner from where Royal Beef was eventually established.
"There wasn't anyone who thought he would make it there, but Paul had the determination of a young bull, a warrior," said Gord DOUCETTE, a friend and fellow butcher. Until ESTRELA opened his own store, the two used to fish every Sunday morning on the Duffins Creek in Pickering, then grab bacon and eggs at Ted's Restaurant on Old Kingston Rd.
After ESTRELA opened his own place, DOUCETTE would come by every Monday morning for coffee and some shop talk. ESTRELA used to say DOUCETTE was the older brother he never had.
A year ago, ESTRELA was featured in the Star extolling the virtues of a new cut of steak, the tri-tip. "It's going to take off once people find out about it," he predicted at the time. As usual, he was right.
A month later, ESTRELA was diagnosed with cancer. He took three days off work, and startled customers wondered where he was. When word got out, offers of help poured in.
"People were saying, 'Anything you need, drives to hospital, anything,'" Bridgette said.
When ESTRELA told DOUCETTE, his friend promised to keep the business going. He closed down his own business and now runs the Royal Beef meat counter.
A little more than a week after ESTRELA's November 7 death, the lights came back on at Royal Beef.
"I couldn't stay away," Carmen said. "All my customers, we just needed to come together."

Albert "Curly" JOSEPH
By Marilyn JOSEPH, Tuesday, December 27, 2005, Page A20
Hatter, brother, husband, father, grandfather. Born October 15, 1921, in Horoncovo, Czechoslovakia. Died April 13 in Hamilton of esophageal cancer, aged 83.
On November 1, 2004, Albert closed Curly's Hat Shop early to visit his doctor at nearby St. Joseph's Hospital. Unbeknownst to him, it would be the last time that he would have the opportunity to headsize anyone for a new fedora or tweed cap within his store that has been a landmark on King Street East in downtown Hamilton since 1957.
Albert Joseph was born in a small mountain village in the eastern part of Czechoslovakia, the third oldest of five brothers and one sister. The family lived a rural life until the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939, when Albert was taken to a Polish labour camp, and then to the Auschwitz concentration camp, where his entire family was killed except for three brothers.
After surviving the Holocaust, Albert went to live in Israel where he met his lifelong partner Helen in 1949. They were married the next year and emigrated to Canada in 1952 to start a family. Meanwhile, his older brother, Yossi, had already settled in Hamilton, and Albert joined him at work, making uniform caps at the Victory Cap Factory during the day, while cleaning and blocking felt hats at Curly's Hat Shop during the night. After saving every penny, Albert bought the business in 1957.
Their first son Harry was born in 1955, followed by my husband Sidney in 1958, and Jack in 1963.
In the 1960s, Sidney helped his father after school. He would rip the inner linings out of the felt hats and staple matching yellow claim-ticket numbers to both as they were soaked in a dry cleaning solvent that made them both dizzy, but not mad, as from mercury, which had caused the Mad Hatter Syndrome in the 1800s.
By the 1970s, long hair became trendy for men, so the business line generally changed from fedoras to tweed caps -- each handcrafted by Albert, starting with cutting the fabric in the basement to machine sewing and steam blocking upstairs.
During the 1980s, western-style hats were the new fad and Albert could not keep enough in stock as he would make frequent runs to Biltmore (now Stetson Hats) in Guelph, Ontario, with his youngest son Jack, stuffing 10-gallon cowboy hats into his 1972 Pontiac.
Business returned to normal in the 1990s as young men wanted the fashionable Homburgs or older, balding men wanted wide-brimmed Panama hats to counter the effects of harmful sun radiation.
After four decades of saying "wear it in good health" to each customer, a fire erupted in the store in 1996 in which he suffered second-degree burns. But instead of retiring at the age of 75, Albert re-opened Curly's Hat Shop. The Hamilton Spectator headlined: "Fire can't put a lid on Curly."
I do not know how many tens of thousands of heads he had fitted in southern Ontario with hats or caps during his half a century in business. He has certainly touched many round or long oval heads, sized between 6 5/8 and 7¾, but 7 1/8 was always his favourite.
Albert loved his family, and wanted the best for his wife and three children, two daughters-in-law (Micheline and myself), and six grandchildren -- Rebecca, Devorah, Elana, Johanna, Lauren, and Zachary.
He was diagnosed with cancer last October. The subsequent surgery was unsuccessful as the cancer had already spread and, after six months, he passed away.
At Albert's quiet, religious funeral, his oldest son Harry read a eulogy that was devoted to his beloved father, size 6 7/8.
Marilyn is Albert's daughter-in-law.

Grenadan refugee gunned down
By Jim RANKIN, Staff Reporter
There had been gunplay in the highrises to the north, and more to the south, according to police blotters. Until Friday evening, the residents of York Square North Townhouses -- where small front yards are neatly groomed and sidewalk chalk is used to let everyone know when someone is having a birthday -- had been spared.
Yesterday, in the heat of an afternoon where the mercury topped 33°C, a dozen members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church gathered at a townhome where the chalk outside that doorstep said, "Welcome." Inside, there were tears and attempts to comfort.
Jason Thomas JOSEPH, 26, a refugee claimant from Grenada, was gunned down Friday near an archway in the complex, not far from his home. Two others were also struck by bullets in the incident but not seriously injured.
According to church members who had come to be with his adoptive "auntie," Joseph stepped out sometime after 9 p.m. to deliver a Compact Disk he had copied for a friend.
Residents heard four to six shots ring out not long after that. Most thought it was fireworks. Shootings just don't happen in the complex near Jane St. and Shoreham Dr., south of Steeles Ave. W., which has over the years become populated by a mix of York University students and families.
Joseph, who was to be an emcee at a close friend's wedding yesterday, was rushed to Sunnybrook hospital, but died six hours later.
"He was an angel in disguise," said Joseph's girlfriend, Nicole, who did not want to give her last name. "He was too good for Earth. Trust me, he was."
Joseph came to Canada two years ago, Nicole said. Soon after, the two met on a Caribana cruise in Toronto harbour and had recently made plans to marry. It's not clear if Joseph will be buried here or in Grenada, where his parents, two sisters and a brother still live.
"He'd always make you laugh," Nicole said. "He was a loving, very caring person. He'd give you his last dollar."
They last spoke on the phone at about 6 p.m. Friday. Nicole had spent the day looking for a dress to wear to the wedding and had other things to do. Joseph had just had his hair braided for the occasion, and he told her, "When you're finished running your errands, just give me a call back. Love you, babe. Bye."
Nicole said she arrived home in Mississauga at about 11 p.m. and got the news in a phone call that Joseph had been shot. "It was just, like, out of nowhere -- lightning. I would more so accept a car accident, a freak accident. But this?"
An autopsy yesterday determined Joseph, who had no history with the police, died of two gunshot wounds to the abdomen. Police have spoken to the other two men who were wounded, one of whom returned home to Gosford Blvd. yesterday with his right back bandaged up.
"I don't know if (Joseph) was the intended victim or if the other two were the intended victim," said homicide Det. Randy CARTER. "They're giving us some information.... This is a starting point and something to work with."
Police are looking into reports earlier that night of shots fired a block south of the townhouse complex, CARTER said.

'Very loving daughter' found dead
Teen's body discovered on Whitby driveway
Police say it's homicide or 'a very serious accident'
By Jim WILKES, Staff Reporter
Just how did 16-year-old Kyla HOLBURN of Oshawa end up dead on the driveway of a Whitby apartment building?
That's the mystery facing Durham homicide detectives after the teen's body was found face down at the top of a ramp to a parking lot behind the building, near King St. and Thickson Rd., on Monday night.
The popular Grade 11 student at R.S. McLaughlin Collegiate had suffered traumatic injuries and her shirt had been pulled up above her shoulders, exposing her back.
Police think her body may have been dumped at the building, several kilometres from her home on Nipigon St. in west-end Oshawa.
Chief Kevin McALPINE said her death was the result of "either a homicide or a very serious accident" that happened somewhere else.
"It's highly likely that what happened to her didn't happen in this location," McALPINE said.
An autopsy yesterday failed to determine an anatomical cause of death. More tests have been ordered.
As detectives looked for answers, relatives and Friends gathered at a townhouse complex near the girl's home.
Her mother, who called Kyla "a very loving daughter," later read a statement that said "sometimes children make wrong decisions and sometimes choose the wrong Friends along the way."
She said Kyla had completed a school-issued identification booklet last September, fingerprinting herself and adding a few strands of her long, dark hair, information that helped police identify her.
Family members urged the public to help police find out what happened to Kyla.
The teen was reported missing by her family about 10 p.m. Monday, three hours after her body was spotted beside Wood Farm Manor on Nichol Ave. in Whitby.
A resident who discovered the body about 7 p.m. alerted building superintendent George McLEOD, who covered it with a blanket and called police.
Local resident Tracy McLENNAN was so moved that she placed a bouquet of flowers at the base of a nearby light standard, even though she didn't know the dead teen.
"I have a teenage daughter of my own and when I heard about this on the news it kind of shook me up," she said. "You just never know today what can happen in a community that we all thought was safe."
Distraught Friends of the dead girl also brought a bouquet to the scene in the afternoon.
At R.S. McLaughlin Collegiate, grief counsellors prepared for questions from classmates and other students.
"It's horrible," said Grade 12 student Cheryl DECOSTE, 18. "A lot of people are shaken up by it."

Youth killed hitching ride on car
Teen horsing around' on rollerblades
Dies in the arms of his older brother
By Stan JOSEY, Staff Reporter
A Pickering youth died in his brother's arms after being run over by a car he had been hitching a ride on while rollerblading.
Derek CAMERON, 15, was "horsing around" on the street outside his family home on Rawlings Dr. about 4: 30 p.m. Wednesday when the accident happened, police said. Derek's father, Scott CAMERON, learned about his son's death while on holiday in Myrtle Beach and rushed home to be with his family last night.
He said his son was an avid hockey player since the age of 6 and wore number 17 on a Pickering house league minor midget team.
"He was a terrific kid and an excellent hockey player," his father said in an interview. "He was full of energy and lived on the edge."
His 17-year-old brother Danny helped set up a memorial to his brother on a street-side hydro transformer outside the family home yesterday.
Derek's blue, white and red hockey jersey was draped over the front of the green box, with several pictures of the boy growing up and in his hockey jersey lovingly placed on top.
In front were some flowers and the words "Love Mom Dad and Danny."
Family friend Shelagh NICHOLS called Derek "a wonderful kid who grew up with one of my sons. We lived just across the back fence. He was just a very athletic kid who loved his brother and people in general.
"He was a real firecracker," she said.
Durham Region police said they are still trying to fit the pieces together to find out exactly what happened on the quiet residential street in the Kingston Rd. and Dixie Rd. area of Pickering. Investigators will say only that the youth was wearing rollerblades while he was hitching a ride from a 1997 Dodge Neon being driven by a 20-year-old woman whom he knew. It is not clear if the youth was beside or behind the vehicle, Sgt. Paul McCURBIN said.
Somehow he fell under the wheels of the car and suffered severe head injuries. He was comforted by his brother, Friends and neighbours until an ambulance arrived. He was transported to Rouge Valley Ajax and Pickering hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
"It is no fun having your brother die in your arms," an emotional Danny CAMERON said outside his house, as he was comforted by Friends.
Family and Friends are planning a memorial service for Derek today.

Young rabbi killed at train crossing
May have been blinded by sun
Police appealing for witnesses:
By Stan JOSEY, Staff Reporter
A popular young Thornhill rabbi may have been blinded by the rising sun early yesterday when his car was hit broadside by a GO train at a level crossing on Green Lane just east of Bayview Ave.
Rabbi Levi BIALO, 25, died instantly when his white Acura Legend became wedged under the lead car of the reversing GO train and was carried about 160 metres down the track.
BIALO and his wife Shira were in charge of the young adult program at Chabad Lubavitch, an Orthodox synagogue about a block and a half from the scene of the accident. Both also taught elementary classes in the synagogue school.
Friends say BIALO, who moved here from Cleveland about two years ago, likely was rushing to make Shacharit or morning prayers at the synagogue when his car was struck shortly after 7 a.m. The level crossing, which is protected by lights, bells and a barrier gate, is just east of the driveway to the BIALOs' home in the Landmark condominium project on Green Lane.
York Region police accident reconstructionist Sgt. Dave MITCHELL said police suspect BIALO may have been blinded by the rising eastern sun, brushed under the barrier gates, put on his brakes and stopped directly on the southbound tracks. "It's just a very sad and unfortunate set of circumstances," he said.
Police are appealing to anyone who may have witnessed the accident to shed some light on the circumstances.
The rush-hour train had just left the Langstaff station near Highway 7 and Yonge St. and was heading for Union Station.
No one was injured on the train, but MITCHELL said the three-member crew was "severely shaken" by the accident. They were taken away by investigators to be interviewed.
The GO passengers were transferred to buses within an hour and a half of the accident to continue their trip into Toronto.
Members of the tight-knit Chabad Lubavitch community were devastated. They called the young rabbi "the best person you could ever meet."
Several members of the synagogue stood staring anxiously down the tracks as Markham firefighters and other emergency workers conducted the difficult task of freeing the man's body from the car's wreckage.
A Jewish burial team, which traditionally cleans and blesses the site of a tragic accident involving Jews, was allowed on to the site shortly after the body was removed around 10: 30 a.m.
Green Lane was closed most of the day as accident investigators studied the scene. Rail traffic began moving along the Bala subdivision Toronto's main rail line into Northern Ontario -- around 11 a.m.
Rabbi Avraham PLOTKIN comforted BIALO's family. Other congregation members at the site could not believe the rabbi, who leaves pregnant wife Shira and a 2-year-old son, was gone.
"He was so full of life and such an inspiration to everyone," said Neil HENDERSON, 50. "He would have been on his way to morning services... this is really sad."
"Levi was a great person who helped bring religion to a lot of people who did not pray so often or so hard," said Jeremy PILARSKI, 25. "He hosted regular dinners at his home for the young people in the community and made a difference in their lives.
"I am sure everyone who knew him is just devastated."
HENDERSON said the accident should make officials consider a grade separation for the tracks, which run through a busy residential and commercial area.
GO Transit spokesman Ed SHAY/SHEA said the line is owned by Canadian National and he did not know of any plans for an overpass.
He said the train speed limit at that point was 40 or 50 km/h, depending on which of the two tracks the train was using.
York Region police, the Transport Safety Board, GO Transit and Canadian National are investigating.

North York man fatally stabbed
By Stan JOSEY, Staff Reporter, With files from Amy BROWN- BOWERS
A quiet North York neighbourhood was pierced by the screams of a dying man Saturday after a violent clash in a penthouse apartment.
Shane Barrington ROSE, 30, died in hospital after he ran from a building on Harrison Garden Blvd., near Yonge Street, and Sheppard Ave. E. He died of a stab wound to the chest, an autopsy revealed.
Another man, believed to be from the same apartment, was taken to hospital with beating injuries and later released.
ROSE apparently fled the apartment where he was attacked, took an elevator downstairs and ran outside for help, where he collapsed, police said.
A resident who lives below the penthouse said he heard the "ruckus" as officers tried to save the man, and a woman, believed to be his girlfriend, begged police for information.
Most of the units in the condo building are owned by investors and rented out, he said. "That's why we have a lot of younger people in here," said the man who wouldn't give his name.
Meanwhile, police have announced that a 70-year-old woman has died nearly two months after being stabbed in a North York townhouse.
A 29-year-old man walked into a police station September 19 to say he had stabbed someone at a townhouse on Wilson Ave. between Bathurst St. and Allen Rd. When police went to the home, they found Bernice LIM suffering from stab wounds. She was taken to Sunnybrook hospital and died of her injuries Saturday.
Roel VINTAYEN of Toronto was originally charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault and having a weapon.

Wolf attack victim, 22, mourned in Oshawa
By Stan JOSEY, Staff Reporter
More than 100 family, Friends and classmates paid tribute yesterday to a young Oshawa man who is suspected to be the first victim of a fatal wolf attack in the wild in more than 100 years in North America.
Kenton Joel CARNEGIE, 22, was likely killed by wolves while walking outside a northern Saskatchewan mining camp near the Northwest Territories border on Tuesday, says the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
Mark McNay of the Alaska Fish and Game department, who has done extensive research on wolf encounters with humans in North America, said there is no other case where non-rabid, wild wolves have killed a person in the wild.
"That's not to say aboriginals weren't killed by wolves in a prehistoric setting," he said.
On rare occasions people also have been killed by wolves in captivity or have died of rabies contracted by wolf bites in the wild, he said.
CARNEGIE was participating an a co-operative education program with an Ottawa firm doing aerial geological surveys in the area of Points North Saskatchewan at the time of his death.
Reports say he left his camp to go for a walk Tuesday afternoon. When he had not returned by 5 p.m., his fellow workers went looking for him and discovered his body around 7 p.m.
CARNEGIE was remembered yesterday at his funeral in Oshawa as a man who loved science and music, and treasured family gatherings. In Kitchener, flags were at half-mast at the University of Waterloo in honour of the third-year geological engineering student.
His family asked that the funeral be kept private and declined comment on the young man's death.
The University of Waterloo website yesterday contained several tributes to CARNEGIE, who graduated from Oshawa's O'Neill Collegiate.
"Kenton was admired by all of his classmates, fellow students, staff and faculty who knew him," said a statement from the faculty of engineering and civil engineering department.
A statement from the student engineering society said Kenton was an active member and one of its video directors.
He had his own campus radio show called Strange Brew.
Rick LAWLER, president of the university's engineering society, said CARNEGIE's geological engineering class of 20 is the smallest class in what is the country's largest engineering faculty.
He leaves his parents, Kim and Lori CARNEGIE, a brother Calvin and sister Breanne.
