EBY, Herbert Clifton
Herbert Clifton EBY of Feversham passed away in Grey Bruce Regional Health Centre on January 7, 2006 in his 90th year.
Herb was born in Elsinor, Ontario on August 8, 1916, the son of the late Gideon and Georgina EBY. In 1926 the EBY's left the farm at Elsinor and moved to Feversham and purchased what was to become known as "Eby's Store".
Herb aftended public and continuation school in Feversham and in 1936 he married Madge DAVIDSON. The young couple resided in the apartment above the family store and Herb worked for his father. In 1937 their son Stephen was born and shortly thereafter, Herb, Madge and baby moved to Barrie where he worked at a hardware store and drove a taxi.
In 1946 they returned to Feversham to take over the general store as the elder EBY's moved to Walters Falls. In 1950 their daughter, Sally May, was born. Herb purchased an insurance business from Norman HARRIS and for the next 15 years he and Madge operated the store and the insurance business.
Herb was an active member of many community organizations and as many of his generation was involved in getting what is now known as the "old community centre" established. He enjoyed many years in the bowling league there. The church was an important part of the EBY's life and for 40 years Herb was an Elder at Burns' Presbyterian Church in Feversham.
1986 was a landmark year for the EBY's as they celebrated 40 years of operating the store, their 50th wedding anniversary and made the decision to sell the store and retire to the home they purchased in the village.
Left to mourn his passing are Madge, his wife of 69 years, son Steve, daughter Sally, son-in-law John HOOD, grand_son Kevin HOOD, sisters Marguerite FORSYTH and Marion DOBIE as well as many nieces, nephews and Friends.
A funeral service was held in Burns Church on January 10, 2006 with Dr. David GLADWELL officiating. Pallbearers were Kevin HOOD, Todd ARMSTRONG, Scott ARDIEL, Bill BRISTOW, Wayne DAVIDSON, Lonnie HUDSON. Honourary pallbearers were Elmer MULLIN, Bruce DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS, Lloyd HUDSON, Burt HALE and Murray LASHOVICH.
Flowerbearers were Reta PHILLIPS, Bonnie DAVIDSON, Carol WAGSTAFF, Mary Lynn McCAULEY, Pamela BRISTOW, Cindi ALLEN, April HUBBARD, Lois PLUMMER and Jane ARDIEL. An excellent eulogy was provided by Burt HALE and a reading by John HOOD. Evelyn DARGAVEL and Kenton HUDSON shared their gift of music and Burt HALE, Rev. Charles JACKSON, Barbara SHIER and Kenton HUDSON sang "Because He Lives". Following the service a large crowd enjoyed the wonderful lunch organized by the Osprey Museum Committee assisted by Friends in the community.
Herb will be remembered for his quiet, gentle manner and he will be missed walking the streets of Feversham with his wee dog Lori.

Driver rescued from watery ditch
By Joe MATYAS, Free Press Reporter, Tues., February 7, 2006
A Woodstock woman trapped in her overturned car as it filled with water escaped drowning yesterday when one of her rescuers held her head out of the water as three others worked to free her.
"They did an awesome job," London police Const. Ian NORMAN said of the four men who stopped to help the unidentified woman. "It was lousy cold out here and the road was bad.
"They reacted quickly and got her out of a dangerous situation," he said at the site of the rescue near London International Airport.
The crash happened two days after a 32-year-old Keswick woman and her four-year-old son died when their sport utility vehicle sank in a canal north of Toronto. (A story on that incident is on Page B10.)
The Woodstock woman was driving a car north on Crumlin Sideroad south of Oxford Street about 9: 20 a.m. when the vehicle slid off the snowy road and rolled into a water-filled drainage ditch.
She was trapped -- hanging upside-down by a seatbelt she couldn't release -- as the car rapidly filled with water.
Fanshawe College accounting students Shaun MacDONALD and Gary ARMSTRONG saw the woman's car fishtail, slide and flip.
"It was kind of surreal to watch because it seemed to be in slow motion," ARMSTRONG said.
He and MacDONALD stopped to help.
So did two other unidentified men in another vehicle, said MacDONALD, who jumped into the frigid water with them while ARMSTRONG called emergency services on his cellphone.
"One of the guys was holding her head up while we worked to get her out," MacDONALD said.
"I opened up the driver's door and the inside of the car was half-submerged in the water. She was panicky at first, but calmed down."
MacDONALD said the men also were unable to release the seatbelt and had to cut it with scissors fetched from one of the vehicles.
"We pulled her out of the car and took her to our van to warm her up," he said.
The woman was worried about a laptop computer in the water, MacDONALD said.
"She was fine, but a little shaken up. She was worried about an essay that's due."
Paramedics in an ambulance whisked her away for treatment.
Yesterday's high winds, blowing snow and sloppy roads produced a rash of problems in Southwestern Ontario.
Driving conditions were so bad in some areas that sections of highways 4, 6, 8, 9, 21 and 23 in Bruce, Huron, Perth and Wellington counties were closed.
Thousands of students in Middlesex, Huron and Perth counties stayed home yesterday as school buses and elementary and secondary schools sat idle.
About 2,500 customers in Lambton and Huron counties were without power at times yesterday because of the weather conditions, Hydro One reported.

Local history his passion
By Joe MATYAS, Free Press Reporter, Sun., March 12, 2006
Raymond CRINKLAW travelled the world but it was his Westminster Township roots that became his passion.
And that's why many Lambeth-area residents paid their respects to him after he died in late February at the age of 91 in a London nursing home.
"It was his prodding that got us going," said Marian WELDON of the founding of the Westminster Township Historical Society in "We're really missing him now," said WELDON, secretary of the society. CRINKLAW was the society's founding president.
"We're compiling a history of Delaware and Westminster townships now and Raymond's knowledge and memories would be invaluable."
His contribution to local history is already huge because of the research he left to posterity, including documents donated to the society by his daughter, Janet GIBSON, who lives in Sutton, said WELDON.
The heritage room at the Lambeth public library is full of materials collected, organized and written by CRINKLAW, said Doris MONTGOMERY of Delaware, known as Doris BOND during her long career as a Lambeth librarian.
"Raymond was a tireless researcher and a familiar figure at our library."
CRINKLAW painstakingly poked through newspaper archives, municipal and church records and even cemeteries, she said.
He could be wilful, but also committed his own resources to projects, said local historian Fred ARMSTRONG.
"He subsidized some publications out of his own pocket and kept scrapbooks of interesting materials."
His research blossomed into the writing of newspaper articles, essays and publications on the early days of Byron, Talbot Road, Glanworth and Westminster Township.
To complement the written word, he commissioned artist George Rickard to render pen and ink drawings.
CRINKLAW's legacy included service to the community as reeve and deputy reeve of the township, as a Middlesex County councillor and member of the Lower Thames River Conservation Authority, said David MURRAY, former Westminster mayor.
He was also active in the Lambeth Optimist Club and Masons, said MURRAY.
"He had an endless curiosity about all aspects of Masonic history, as well as the township where he was born and raised."

Crash injuries claim London teenager
By Jennifer O'BRIEN, Free Press Reporter, Fri., June 23, 2006
A London couple is devastated today as they prepare to bury their 19-year-old son, a popular University of Western Ontario student who was injured in a crash this month.
Brad HARRIES died Tuesday, two weeks after his car was hit by an sport utility vehicle that crossed the median on Wonderland Road. He was recovering from several broken bones and a punctured lung and had been transferred from London Health Sciences Centre's Victoria Hospital to Central Park Lodge when he died, his mother, Ellen HARRIES, said yesterday.
"We are going to be lost without him. He was the centre of our universe," she said, her voice crumbling throughout a telephone interview. "He was our baby. We went to everything he was ever involved in, his volleyball games, everything… our lives revolved around him."
The science major who graduated from Saunders secondary played on Western's volleyball team. Yesterday, Western News announced his death on its website.
"Brad was a wonderful young person and he will be dearly missed both on and off the court," volleyball coach Jim SAGE is quoted as saying.
HARRIES, who worked at West Haven Golf and Country Club, "burned the candle at both ends," his mother said. A dedicated athlete, he also loved guitar and played in several bands over the last few years.
HARRIES said she and Brad's father, Ty HARRIES, will miss the piles of shoes at the door that meant "the boys" were over.
"He was a social butterfly and he was so likable," she said. "There would be a party here and you couldn't get the door open for all the shoes."
London police are still probing the June 6 crash that sent HARRIES to hospital and they expect charges will be laid, Const. Brian ARMSTRONG said yesterday.
"At this point in time, we still need to determine a few things before we can determine what is the most appropriate charge," he said.
So far, it has been confirmed that HARRIES was driving south on Wonderland when a northbound sport utility vehicle jumped the raised median in the middle of four lanes of traffic south of Springbank Drive.
The collision closed down a section of Wonderland for six hours that day and sent HARRIES to hospital in critical condition with several injuries, including a broken femur, broken pelvis, punctured lung and cracked ribs.
He died as a result of complications from those injuries, his mom said, adding the teen's older brother and sister are "devastated" by the loss.
Visitation is from 1 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 9 p.m. today at Westview Funeral Chapel. His funeral will be held at Forest City Community Church tomorrow at 11 a.m.

MILLER, Barbara (née ARMSTRONG)
The Long Goodbye is Over Peacefully at Residence GeorgesHebert in Jonquiere, Quebec on June 20, 2006. Predeceased by her husband O'Kill and her brother Joe, she leaves behind her loving daughter Sandra (Christopher). She will also be missed by her brothers Geoffrey (Vivian) and David (Ruth,) sisters-in-law Yvonne ARMSTRONG, Gypsie HENDERSON, and Joan MILLER, as well as extended family and Friends. Born in Barbados on May 5, 1922, she grew up at Pool Plantation and attended Codrington High School, where she excelled in literature, arts, and drama. She became Assistant Matron there after graduating and was well loved for her energy, good humour, and devotion to the students in her charge. During World War 2, she served as a Teletype Operator with the British Signals Corps in England and afterwards returned to Barbados where she worked as an office manager at the Diagnostic Clinic, keeping the staff and patients happy with her vivacious good humour and outgoing nature. Barbara met her future husband O'Kill when he visited Barbados and they married in 1961. They lived in Kenogami, Quebec where O'Kill was a papermaker and where Barbara volunteered with the St. Andrew's United Church Ladies Group. She was a voracious and curious reader, filling the family home with books, and could argue passionately on any subject that Friends and family could get her worked up about. Barbara cared for O'Kill after he suffered a serious car accident in 1973 and encouraged her daughter to be anything she wanted to be. She was a proud 'new' Canadian and loved exploring her adopted country from coast to coast even after her stroke in 1986. Mom was Grace and Passion personified to her last day she will be forever loved. Very special thanks to Jean and Dave BELL, and Helen and Peter MARSHALL who gave most generously of their time and Friendship over the years. Special thanks as well to the staff of Residence Georges-Hebert. In lieu of flowers, please give generously to the Alzheimer Society. The funeral service will take place at the Church of St. Andrew and Saint_John in Kenogami and interment in Barbados.

2 Canadians killed in Taliban ambush
By Jane ARMSTRONG, Page A1
Kandahar, Afghanistan -- Two Canadian soldiers were killed and five others injured in a fierce mortar ambush in Afghanistan's turbulent Panjwai region, an area where Canadian commanders have boasted of decisive victories over Taliban insurgents.
The besieged troops were providing surveillance for a road-building crew not far from where Private Josh KLUKIE was killed last week in a mine explosion. It is the same region where Canadian soldiers led a massive assault a month ago, killing -- according to a North Atlantic Treaty Organization claim -- more than 1,000 Taliban and routing others.
Military officials declared that operation a huge success, estimating that they may have destroyed as much as a third of the insurgency's hard-core ranks.
Yet the death toll of Canadians in southern Afghanistan continues to climb. In September alone, 10 soldiers were killed, the bloodiest month yet for Canadian troops in Afghanistan. Now October is off to an ominous start.
Killed in yesterday's twilight attack were Corporal Robert Thomas James MITCHELL and Sergeant Craig Paul GILLAM, both of the Royal Canadian Regiment based in Petawawa, Ontario
The fatal ambush was one of three separate attacks on Canadian troops over a five-hour period.
Just after noon, members of the Royal Canadian Regiment's Charles Company came under fire as they walked along the parched Arghandab River bed, about 10 kilometres from the scene of the subsequent fatal attack. There were no Canadian injuries reported.
A local witness said the Canadian troops returned fire, sending the assailants into retreat. A few minutes later, an aircraft bombed the ambush scene.
"We fought on two fronts today," said a young Taliban fighter in Panjwai District, where most of Canada's battle groups are now deployed. "But we escaped from the area, to avoid the bombings. This will be our method now," he said from his mobile phone.
Earlier, a suicide bomber on a motorcycle rammed a convoy of Canadian supply vehicles returning to the Kandahar Airfield from an operating base west of Kandahar city. The explosion ignited the diesel-fuelled jeep, wounding three Afghan civilians, including an 11-year-old boy.
The soldiers inside the jeep, also known as a G-Wagon, escaped without injury.
The suicide blast sent glass fragments flying into Mohammed Salim's storefront, cutting his head and leaving his shirt stained with blood.
The explosion also seriously injured his younger brother, Mohammed Hasham, 11, who was recovering last night at Mirwais Hospital in Kandahar.
"We were working in the shop, when a motorcycle came with a trolley behind it," Mr. Salim, 18, said. "Smoke, dust, everything went everywhere."
The five soldiers injured in the worst attack yesterday were flown to a hospital at the Kandahar Airfield, the coalition's main base. A military spokesman said their injuries are not life-threatening, although one soldier suffered broken bones.
These latest attacks cast doubt on the effectiveness of the recent Canadian-led offensive, code-named Operation Medusa, in the Panjwai District southwest of Kandahar city.
Just two weeks ago, Kandahar's governor announced that Canadian soldiers had routed the Taliban from the area.
The offensive was designed to encircle the insurgents in the area, but soldiers are still hunting for the insurgents' underground weapons caches, where many fighters are believed to have stowed guns and ammunition before fleeing the battlefield.
Governor Asadullah Khalid said foreign troops intend to stay in Panjwai and the neighbouring Zhari District to maintain security. Road construction is a key part of Operation Medusa's final stage, which is to reconstruct the battle-scarred region.
Early this morning, Colonel Fred Lewis, the deputy commander of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization's International Security Assistance Force, said Operation Medusa is "far from over."
His voice shaking with emotion as he read the names of the dead soldiers, Col. Lewis said the insurgents are staging a last-ditch attempt "to save face."
"They are attempting to win this final phase of [Operation Medusa]," he said.
"If we are able to do the reconstruction and development and the Afghans, the local people in that Panjwai area, say 'Hey, we will have a much better life under our own government'… they will go out of their way to keep the Taliban out."

'Fluke' kills 40th Canadian
By Jane ARMSTRONG and Dawn WALTON with reports from Gloria Galloway and Canadian Press, Page A10
Canada's latest casualty in Afghanistan is being blamed on a "lucky" enemy that planted a roadside bomb that struck an armoured vehicle over the weekend and, in an apparent "fluke," killed one occupant.
Trooper Mark Andrew WILSON, who was with the Royal Canadian Dragoons based at Canadian Forces Base Petawawa, Ontario, died Saturday while on an early morning patrol. He is the 40th Canadian soldier to die in Afghanistan since 2002.
He was a married father of two who hailed from London, Ontario
"There is no doubt that Trooper WILSON represented the best of our military and our country," Prime Minister Stephen Harper said yesterday in a statement. "His family and Friends can be proud of the fact that this courageous Canadian sacrificed his life for a greater cause."
Trooper WILSON was a gunner riding in a Nyala (RG-31) armoured vehicle that was preparing to retrieve a group of soldiers who had spent the previous night securing an area in the Panjwai district, known for insurgent attacks.
The improvised explosive device was set off on a roadway less than one kilometre from where Sergeant Craig GILLAM and Corporal Robert MITCHELL, also of the Royal Canadian Dragoons, were ambushed last week. Both died while they were guarding a road-building crew.
"Today we are all mourning the loss of a brother in arms and a good soldier," Colonel Fred Lewis, deputy commander of Canada's Task Force in Afghanistan, told reporters.
The Nyala (RG-31) is specifically designed to protect its occupants from explosions caused by roadside bombs.
"In this particular case, I think the enemy got a bit lucky," Col. Lewis said.
"This is the first time something like this has happened. Is it a fluke? Perhaps. It doesn't happen very often. The troops have superb confidence in this vehicle."
He described the vehicle as providing good protection for Canadian troops, but added that the enemy is also perfectly capable of building bigger bombs.
Yesterday, federal Defence Minister Gordon O'Connor echoed those sentiments. Nothing, he said, is bulletproof.
"We don't know why one soldier was killed in this vehicle. Nobody else was injured. So there is something peculiar about that vehicle or the explosive and we have to find out what it is," Mr. O'Connor said.
"They are built to deal with mines but sometimes the Taliban put four anti-tank mines together. That is a terrific blast. So somehow they were lucky and we were unlucky and one of our soldiers got killed," he said.
But at a time when Canadians far away from a war zone were celebrating Thanksgiving, the latest death hit home hard. Dozens of Canadians used the holiday to write morale-boosting missives to Canada's troops through a Department of National Defence website.

Jack ARMSTRONG, Soldier And Administrator: (1915-2006)
Sergeant came back from the 'dead' after the disastrous raid on Dieppe
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to the Globe and Mail, Page S9
Ottawa -- Jack ARMSTRONG was so busy tending to the survivors of the bloody battle of Dieppe that he forgot to make sure his own name was added to the list of those who made it back from the ill-fated 1942 raid.
A few days later, his fiancé, Ruby WAY of Ottawa, received the telegram every Canadian family dreaded getting during the Second World War. It informed her that Sergeant Jack ARMSTRONG of the Corps of Military Staff Clerks was missing, presumed dead.
If that wasn't traumatic enough, Ottawa's daily newspapers published his name, plus his photograph, in their casualty lists. The pair had become engaged two years earlier when Mr. ARMSTRONG shipped out to Britain in 1940.
But Mr. ARMSTRONG wasn't dead, as his fiancé found out to her joy soon after. He had simply slipped through the cracks of army administration, which sometimes happened in an era when a forest of paperwork engulfed Canada's fighting services. Ironically, Mr. ARMSTRONG himself was an experienced army administrator.
At the end of the Dieppe raid, Mr. ARMSTRONG moved carefully from soldier to soldier lying on the deck of HMS Calpe as the ship steamed for England and safety. Many of the soldiers were badly wounded and delirious from pain. Mr. ARMSTRONG took names and tried his best to find out who was still in France, either as a prisoner or as a corpse.
After the smoke had cleared on August 19, 1942, more than 900 Canadians from the untested 2nd Canadian Infantry Division lay dead on and near the stony beach of Dieppe out of the 4,963 who crossed the English Channel in Operation Jubilee. Almost 2,000 had been taken prisoner. Only 2,210 returned to England, many of them wounded.
Championed by Chief of Combined Operations Lord Louis Mountbatten, the raid's purpose was to see if it was possible to seize the northern French port of Dieppe, hold it for a few hours and assess the German response.
Although his job was to watch and wait, Mr. ARMSTRONG came under fire as he stood on the Calpe's deck. The Royal Navy ship played host to the commander of the 2nd Division, Major-General J.H. Roberts, and the staff of his headquarters, where Mr. ARMSTRONG worked.
German aircraft tried to sink the Calpe and several men standing near Mr. ARMSTRONG on deck were hit, he told his son Charles many years later. "He said the British captain knew what he was doing and he saved [their] lives by zigzagging," said Charles ARMSTRONG.
Mr. ARMSTRONG remained haunted by the disastrous battle for the rest of his life, although he never talked about it. Once a year, though, on its anniversary, he told his son: "This is the day that Canadians shouldn't forget."
Jack ARMSTRONG grew up in Montreal and Ottawa. By the time he was 16, he had lost both his parents and found himself on his own at the beginning of the Depression. Determined to make something of himself, he went to school, played the trumpet with the Ottawa Boys' Band and served with the Royal Canadian Artillery from 1931 to 1935.
After graduating from the High School of Commerce in Ottawa, Mr. ARMSTRONG displayed the fierce independence he was known for when he turned down a generous offer that would have seen him study medicine, all expenses paid. Instead, he got a job with a printing company. Ten weeks after Canada declared war against Germany on September 10, 1939, he joined the army.
It didn't take long for the brass to see that Mr. ARMSTRONG had potential. Seven months after enlisting, he was a sergeant. For his war service, Mr. ARMSTRONG was made a member of the Order of the British Empire. By the order of King George VI, Quarter-Master Sergeant ARMSTRONG was also mentioned in dispatches on March 22, 1945, "for distinguished service." Britain's secretary of state for war was "charged to record His Majesty's high appreciation."
After being released from the army in October, 1945, with the rank of Warrant Officer Class One, he decided seven months later to re-enlist and make a career of it. Canada's huge wartime military had been ruthlessly cut, though, so Mr. ARMSTRONG had to start at the bottom as a private again. A week or two later, he was made a staff sergeant. In December, 1952, Mr. ARMSTRONG was commissioned as an officer in the Royal Canadian Army Service Corps. He served 15 years in staff appointments in Ottawa and Kingston before retiring in 1967 as a captain. He spent the next 10 years as an administrator at Queen's University's student health service.
Mr. ARMSTRONG's daughter Cynthia remembers her father as a proud soldier who taught her useful things. "Even though I was a girl, he wanted me to learn skills so I wasn't dependent on others for every little thing. For example, he taught me to change fuses, change a tire on a car, take a fish off a hook, fix the chain on my bike. He taught me not to waste food because he knew what it was like to go without."
An ardent fisherman and hunter who loved the outdoors, sailing and curling, Mr. ARMSTRONG was also "defiant about maintaining his independence. He never asked for help. He did things his way and if there was a hard way of doing it, he'd do it," said Charles ARMSTRONG.
In August, 1962, Mr. ARMSTRONG, resplendent in his uniform complete with seven medals, decided to attend his son Charles' graduation parade. The latter had joined the Princess of Wales' Regiment and had done well enough to be picked to command the parade. "He's a captain and people were saluting him. He told me that he was proud of me. That day is still very vivid to me. He was slow to give praise but when we got it we felt good."
John William ARMSTRONG was born on February 7, 1915, in Barrie, Ontario He died of a stroke on May 12, 2006, in Ottawa. He was 91. He is survived by his daughter Cynthia and his sons Charles, John and Robert. His wife Ruby died in 1989.

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Don ARMSTRONG. A fine human being, caring and loving husband of Toni, proud father to Andrew (Andrea) and Jill (Matthew). Adoring grandfather to Madeleine, Natalie, Spencer, John and Grace, and brother to Sandra in British Columbia. He was a respected leader and member of the meat import/export business in Montreal and Toronto for over fifty years. Don had a sharp wit and was an avid art lover and collector. He fought the good fight in life and continued to do so until cancer won. This is an excerpt Don loved. He kept it for years. It is the simple and eloquent farewell of Chief of the Blackfoot Confederacy as he died in 1850. "A little while and I will be gone from among you, whither I cannot tell. From nowhere we come, into nowhere we go. What is life? It is a flash of a firefly in the night. It is a breath of a buffalo in the winter time. It is the little shadow that runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset" To remember Don, donations can be made to Toronto Sick Kids' Hospital.
