MAXHELEAU o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2005-03-14 published
Ottawa man faces charges in deaths of parents, sister
Canadian Press, Monday, March 14, 2005 Page A7
Ottawa -- Police responding to a call for help from a frantic and screaming woman discovered her body and the bodies of her parents in an east-end home yesterday. The couple's son was arrested and is expected to be charged.
Gerald MAXHELEAU, 66, his wife Louise MAXHELEAU, 60, and their daughter Michelle MAXHELEAU, 25, were all found stabbed to death on the main floor of the house, police said.
Police expect to charge the MAXHELEAU's 30-year-old son, Daniel, with three counts of first-degree murder today, Ottawa Police Staff-Sergeant Randy Whisker told the Ottawa Citizen.
Officers raced to the comfortable home in a tranquil suburb around 9 a.m. after receiving a frantic 911 call from a woman screaming and crying for help.
A blood-covered man who rambled on about a bizarre plot against him met police at the door, the Ottawa Sun reported.
Inside, police found the daughter in the foyer, dead from stab wounds with a phone next to her. Her parents were discovered face down in pools of blood on the kitchen floor, the newspaper said.
"There were signs of violence on the bodies of the victims," said Staff-Sergeant Monique ACKLAND, an Ottawa Police spokeswoman.
Police said the son was treated for minor cuts at hospital and then was taken to an Ottawa police station for questioning.
"There is a lot of work to do to put together what exactly happened," Staff-Sgt. WHISKER said. "It will likely take us a couple of days to process the crime scene."
A weapon believed to have been used in the killings was recovered and a team of forensic officers will collect evidence at the house for the next couple of days.
Staff-Sgt. ACKLAND said the accused has had previous contact with police, but not of a criminal nature.
The Sun reported that police were called to the house last year when a man threatened to jump out a window. Depressed over losing his job and unable to sleep, the man voluntarily admitted himself to a psychiatric unit at a local hospital.
A relative in Toronto said the couple's surviving daughters are in a state of shock.
"It's too painful to be able to speak about it," Elyse MAXHELEAU said.
Neighbour Jean PERLEY said the MAXHELEAU family has lived in the house for at least 20 years.
Neighbours said the couple had three daughters: Michelle, who was the youngest; Susan, who lives in Montreal; and Marie-Helen, who lives in nearby Hull, Quebec
Marie-Helen went to visit her parents on Sunday afternoon but arrived to find police cruisers blocking the street.
Few neighbours knew the couple had a son until he moved in with them in the last couple of weeks.

Edward MAXWELL, Firefighter: 1916-2005
He battled blazes when firemen lacked modern equipment and he died of emphysema caused by years of smoke inhalation
By Carol COOPER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Friday, April 29, 2005, Page S7
Affable and friendly Ed MAXWELL was known to also hold firm opinions. Especially when it came to a certain superstition, the one that maintains walking under ladders brings bad luck. In fact, the career firefighter with the City of Toronto counted himself as living proof the superstition was false. Once, when on the job, he walked under a ladder that leaned against a blazing brick-covered wall, just as the wall collapsed. The bricks poured down the ladder, which sheltered him and spared his life.
While proud of being a firefighter, Mr. MAXWELL talked little about the hazards of the job, though they were evident enough. Without benefit of modern safety equipment, he was often injured.
"You would see him, and his face would be bruised and blackened, and you would ask him, 'What happened?' and he would say, 'Oh, something at a fire,' but he would never go into detail," said his son David MAXWELL.
A tall, gentle man with large hands and a commanding presence, Mr. MAXWELL only recently began to tell his family about some of his firefighting experiences. Even then, details were sparse. Mr. MAXWELL spoke about how, after the tragic 1949 dockside fire that destroyed the Great Lakes passenger steamer Noronic and killed 118 people, his boots melted as he stood on the deck.
About how, after an explosion, he was standing on the second floor of a building one minute and on the ground the next. About how he once woke up receiving oxygen. He'd passed out after inhaling smoke and ammonia. About how he was on duty during Hurricane Hazel. About how he attended a fire at the Toronto stockyards.
Said David MAXWELL of his father, "You would ask him certain things, and he would just give you the look, like no, you wouldn't want to go there. I'm sure there were many painful episodes that he just didn't want to bring up."
One of four children, Edward Langemark MAXWELL grew up in east-end Toronto. He received his middle name from the place in Belgium where, during the First World War, his father had been stationed.
Mr. MAXWELL left school after Grade 11 to help support the family during the Depression and held a variety of jobs until December 1, 1941, when he joined the Toronto Fire Department. By then married and the father of a small child, he replaced firefighters who sailed for London to help out during the German blitz. He became a captain in 1959 and worked at just about every firehouse in the city. Punished once for an infraction on the part of his crew, he was transferred to Toronto Island, which was then considered a low-status posting.
Mr. MAXWELL's first wife, Maisie, died in 1972. Four years later, he retired and moved to Spokane, Washington., and remarried. In 2002, he returned to Toronto after the death of his second wife.
Edward Langemark MAXWELL was born on May 9, 1916, in Toronto. He died there February 6, after suffering emphysema developed from his exposure to smoke as a firefighter. He was 88. He leaves a sister, daughter Mary Lou THORN and sons Edward, David and Richard.

MAXWELL, Liz
It is with great sadness that the family of Liz MAXWELL announces her sudden and unexpected death in the early morning hours of July 30th, 2005. Liz was the loving wife of Mike TRUSZ and the mother of Graham, Jamie and Cameron WEBSTER. She was also a long-time teacher at both I.E. Weldon and Fenelon Falls Secondary Schools. Liz's sense of family, humour and zest for life will be missed by all who knew her. Liz was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia on September 29th, 1948. The daughter of Bill MAXWELL, a naval commander in the Canadian Armed Forces and Margaret MAXWELL, a teacher, she spent the first years of her life moving between Ottawa and Halifax. She was an adventuresome, outgoing and athletic child, which led her to Queen's University where she studied Phys. Ed, eventually earning a Master in Education from the University of Toronto. She moved to Fenelon Falls with her first husband Jim WEBSTER and kept busy with local politics and coaching high school sports teams, taking a particular interest in basketball, volleyball and track and field. Despite being very active and health conscious, jogging every day long before it became fashionable, Liz suffered from some serious health afflictions in her middle years. In 1992 she gratefully received a liver transplant, which allowed her an additional thirteen years to nurture her family and marry her husband Mike. Together, with their family, they embarked on a wide range of adventures including participating in the transplant games in Australia where Liz earned a Silver medal. She also sailed the Greek Islands, toured France and Portugal and travelled throughout North America visiting Friends and family from the Yukon to Newfoundland. When she wasn't travelling she was often found on the tennis court or expanding her fledgling writing career. Her love, energy and spirit will be missed by all. Along with her husband and sons, Liz is survived by her stepchildren Dave, Melanie and Josh TRUSZ, her Aunt Flora TABOR, her sister Barb DEAN and her brother Bob MAXWELL, her eight nieces and nephews and one great-niece. Friends and family will be received at the Jardine Funeral Home 'Illman-Platten Chapel', 8 Princes' Street West, Fenelon Falls, on Tuesday August 2nd from 2: 00 until 4: 00 p.m. and 7:00 until 9:00 p.m. A service celebrating her wonderful life will be held the following day, Wednesday August 3rd at 2: 00 p.m. at the Fenelon Falls United Church. As a remembrance, please consider a donation to the University Health Network liver transplant program. On-line condolences and donations can be made at www.jardinefuneralhomes.com.

A crusader for organ donation
Liz MAXWELL never forgot gift of life she received
Always positive vigorous dynamo forever on the go
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
A few years ago, Liz MAXWELL and her husband, Mike TRUSZ, sat down and made a list of things they wanted to do. Although MAXWELL always referred to it as a work in progress, they came up with 30 items, most of which were pretty adventurous: See the Yukon, the Galapagos, hit the South Pacific, sail the Greek Islands, sail their own boat to the Bahamas.
They did quite a lot on that list -- and many other things that weren't on it -- before MAXWELL died of internal hemorrhaging at Mount Sinai Hospital on July 30, two days after she had laughingly dragged TRUSZ down the main street of Collingwood during that town's annual Elvis festival, one day after becoming suddenly and seriously ill.
She was only 56, a dynamo, a vigorous, athletic, fit woman who jogged, skied, played tennis, and rode her bike 20 or 30 kilometres several times a week on the Trans Canada Trail outside her home. She volunteered with families of victims of violence and her local association for community living, and crusaded for the environment.
What many of her shocked neighbours and Friends in Fenelon Falls had forgotten was that MAXWELL had been living on what amounted to borrowed time since December 22, 1992, when she received a liver transplant.
MAXWELL never did forget.
Every year she wrote to the family who had authorized the donation of their loved one's liver to let them know their gift was being well used.
Two weeks before MAXWELL died, her article about competing in the 1997 World Transplant Games on the Olympic site in Sydney, Australia, appeared in The Globe and Mail, timed to promote the upcoming 2005 Games in London, Ontario
In it she relived her liver failure, the transplant, the long year before she could walk, run and work again. She described standing on the starting line massaging her transplant incision that connected her always with her donor, and how her tears began with the starter's gun.
It is a polished gem of a story, written with skill and heart.
"She couldn't express her gratitude enough," said her youngest son, Cameron WEBSTER, 19. "She would have written a whole book if she could."
And MAXWELL had been working on an anthology of interviews with transplant recipients and donors, one of several writing projects she shared with her writing group. For two years, she drove to Toronto every two weeks to meet with them.
"She wanted to be a good writer; it was so important to her," said Gwenlyn SETTERFIELD. She wrote about living in the country, her prom dresses and travels with her father, a naval commander, but most of all she wrote about her transplant.
"She'd warn us: 'It's another transplant piece,'" Rose ZGODSINSKI recalled. "It was definitely her main message."
In 2002, MAXWELL wrote about attending the funeral of a son's favourite sailing instructor whose family had donated his organs to others: "These gifts contribute to the collective unconscious the certainty that there is in the world, in the purest sense, charity and love."
She was always willing to speak at schools and meetings about the organ donor program.
"She was a big advocate," said Dr. Les LILLY, a surgeon with the transplant program at Toronto General Hospital, where MAXWELL was one of 65 people who received new livers in 1992.
With one of the largest liver transplant programs in Canada, the hospital now performs more than 300 adult transplants a year with increasingly better results. In 1992, only about 70 per cent of recipients were expected to live more than a year. It's now about 90 per cent.
"The only thing holding us back is getting more donors," said LILLY. Canada has one of the worst rates of organ donations in the western world. And Toronto has the lowest rate of any Canadian city. "The fact that one-third of liver transplants use living donors shows you how desperate we're getting."
People like MAXWELL who promote the donor program are crucial to its success, he said.
"We have patients pushing 20 years. We expect indeterminate longevity," said Dr. Greg PAUL, who operated on MAXWELL. " Liver transplants are one of the most successful transplant procedures. Liz MAXWELL would be a testament to that."
She always lived full out. An athlete in high school and at Queen's University, she began her teaching career as a physical education instructor and was aware of nutrition and the benefits of jogging long before either became fashionable, according to TRUSZ, a retired high school principal.
Raised in Ottawa, she moved to Fenelon Falls with her first husband, Jim WEBSTER, 28 years ago.
When she and TRUSZ were starting to become involved, MAXWELL told him that she had a serious liver problem and that there would be no hard feelings should he want to leave. He stayed and they sailed together in the British Virgin Islands two years running and took what TRUSZ calls "a trip of a lifetime" to Newfoundland in 1991.
But early in 1992, her liver failed and she was in a coma for five days. "There were medical people who thought she wouldn't survive," said TRUSZ. She was put on the transplant list, taken off it and put back on when she had a setback that September. On December 21, she was making gingerbread houses with sons Graham, Jamie and Cameron when the phone rang
TRUSZ remembers it vividly. He was frozen on the stairs knowing it was a call from Risa CASHMORE, then the transplant co-ordinator at Toronto General Hospital.
An hour later they were driving to Toronto; 10 hours later, MAXWELL was being wheeled into the operating room. "It was amazing to see her progression after the transplant," said TRUSZ. " She struggled to walk to the washroom, but she set goals. Walk to the mailbox, then walk two blocks and back. She was very disciplined."
A year later she and TRUSZ married, she was back teaching and riding the trail bike TRUSZ had given her for Christmas. The family skied every winter; summers they sailed Georgian Bay in the Resolute, the 27-foot sailboat TRUSZ built. They travelled to Portugal and took the two youngest boys out of school to spend almost three months in Australia, New Zealand and Fiji, when she won a silver medal in the three-mile race at the World Transplant Games.
Back home, she attacked life every day, taking her medication load twice daily but always living well, making sure her life was rich, balanced and complete, but never cutting herself any slack. "She'd always pick up her own tennis balls," Cameron said, recalling the time shortly after her transplant when a nurse was looking after her at home as her middle son, Jamie, began to choke on a sandwich.
"My mom was one month out of the hospital with a transplant, but she was up so fast and had him in the Heimlich manoeuvre. It was her nature. She was always there for us."
When a neighbour and fellow teacher also needed a liver transplant almost a year ago, MAXWELL counselled him on what to expect. "The only thing Liz had difficulty talking with me about were the dark moments," said Rowland BAXENDALE. "It was indicative of how she lived her life. Liz's days didn't have dark moments. She was a very positive person."
He never knew until her funeral that MAXWELL had visited him in intensive care right after his transplant, but he was always aware that she was showing him how to live by her own example.
"She is still teaching me a lot," he said. "I'm constantly reminding myself to deal with matters more enjoyably, to relish every moment as they happen."
MAXWELL lived up to her credo. Two years ago, she wrote each member of her family a note "expressing feelings that aren't often enough expressed," said TRUSZ. " She didn't take her good fortune lightly or for granted."
