A killing field
Tired of the long hours, Mike THIESSEN, 22, had planned to quit his farming job today, but fate intervened.
By John HERBERT, Thurs., October 5, 2006
Death, injuries intensify focus on farm safety
Tragedy Strikes: The area behind the school bus is where Mike THIESSEN, 22, was struck down by a single lightning bolt that killed him and left a group of Mexican exchange workers with burns. (Susan BRADNAM, The London Free Press)
Mount Salem -- Farm worker Mike THIESSEN planned to quit his job today because he didn't like the long hours.
Instead, his family is planning his funeral.
The 22-year-old was hit by lightning and killed just before 9 a.m. yesterday while grading peppers with a crew of five migrant workers from Mexico on a farm on Calton Line, southeast of Aylmer, near his home.
The five Mexicans, who had been standing near THIESSEN in the partially flooded field -- drenched by heavy thunderstorms overnight and into yesterday morning -- were knocked to the ground and suffered burns. They were taken to hospital in Saint Thomas for non life-threatening injuries.
According to the Farm Safety Association, THIESSEN's death was the first lightning-related farm death in 15 years.
THIESSEN had worked the past two years on the farm.
"He was the best worker they had -- he wanted to quit on Thursday," said his sister, Mary Anne WIEBE.
"They didn't even know he was going to quit," said WIEBE, as Friends and family grieved at the THIESSEN home, also on Calton Line in Mount Salem. "He was so sick of it."
THIESSEN and the workers from Mexico worked on a farm owned by Richard DELEEBEECK. The Mexicans were on a worker exchange program.
THIESSEN, hoping to lead a more normal life, wanted to return to a job with Simcoe Leaf.
WIEBE said THIESSEN, who recently became an uncle, loved playing with her three-month-old boy, Aiden, and fixing up Chevy cars. He dreamed of becoming a mechanic.
He was at the Dwight Yoakam concert at the John Labatt Centre in London on Tuesday night and arrived home late, but he was ready to work in the pepper field by 7 a.m. yesterday.
"He did everything for them sometimes, working until 3 in the morning. He had no life," said his 16-year-old brother, Bobby.
THIESSEN's parents, Peter and Justina THIESSEN, who drive a transport-trailer truck, were expected to fly home last night from California.
Neighbours and Friends in the area said there was no lightning or thunder before the storm hit -- and that a single bolt appeared to have hit THIESSEN without warning. There were metal poles, used to hold up a cover shading the ginseng crop, just a few metres from the work crew.
"There was just one bolt," said neighbour Raymond DELEEBEECK, who farms near where the lightning hit. "I heard it but I was in the barn and it was raining hard."
Richard DELEEBEECK, Raymond's brother, wasn't available for comment but his adult son, Nick, said his father had been concerned about the dangerous weather approaching.
Nick DELEEBEECK said about 30 Mexicans work on the farm.
"The Spanish guys said there was one crack… what the heck can you do,?" Nick DELEEBEECK said. "It was just raining and dad told Mike if it starts to lightning, get the hell out of there. At seven (a.m.), he held off sending them out because of storms. They started grading about eight. Dad specifically said to Mike to get on the bus (parked in the field) and leave if there was lightning.
"About 15 minutes later, dad got a call that a worker had been hit."
Nick DELEEBEECK said his father immediately went to the scene, arriving before the fire department, and saw three of THIESSEN's co-workers sitting on the ground "in shock."
"Whether they got jolted… I don't know," he said. "What I was told is three got knocked over."
A few minutes after the lightning strike, the THIESSEN family was told Mike THIESSEN had been in an accident.
"They think he died instantly," Mary Anne WIEBE said.
The Labour Ministry is investigating.
About Lightning
How close is it?
Count the seconds between the flash and the thunder clap. Each second represents about 300 metres. If you count less than 30 seconds, take shelter immediately. Stay there for at least 30 minutes after last thunder.
If caught outdoors
- Keep a safe distance from tall objects, such as trees, hilltops, and utility poles. - Avoid being the highest point in an open area, or carrying anything that makes you the highest point. Seek shelter in low-lying areas but beware of flooding. - If caught in a level field far from shelter and you feel your hair stand on end, lightning may be about to hit you. Kneel with feet together and hands on your knees and bend forward. Don't lie flat. - If in a group, spread people several metres apart. - Stay away from water. - Avoid objects that conduct electricity. Take off shoes with metal cleats. - You are safe inside a car during lightning, but don't park near trees or tall objects and beware downed power lines.
If someone is hit by lightning
They do not carry an electrical charge and can be safely handled. Victims should receive immediate first aid, include rescue breathing and cardio-pulmonary resuscitation if necessary. Call 911.

MORGAN, Emily
It is with broken hearts that Tony and Dianne MORGAN announce that their 14-year old daughter Emily died on Saturday morning, November 4, 2006. Emily was the courageous big sister of Lucy, who has sadly lost her very best friend. Emily will be greatly missed by her brothers Clayton and Dylan. She was so very proud to be the young aunt of Dylan and Julie's sons, Tavis, Wyatt, and Jackson. Emily had Cystic Fibrosis and received a double-lung transplant in 2002. From that moment on, she became an inspiration to the community. With her sparkling eyes, her gorgeous smile, and her tremendous laugh, Emily brought happiness to all who have known her. Emily will leave a huge void in the lives of her grandmothers, Gwen STEWARD/STEWART/STUART and Jerry MORGAN; her uncles and aunts and their families: David ORMANDY, Michael ORMANDY, Charlie and Trish MORGAN, David and Carla MORGAN, Linda and Yves TRUDEL, Frank and Louise MORGAN, Marie MORGAN, Dorothy and Jim HOWELL, and Susan BRADNAM and Jon VANDERZWAN. Just enrolled in Grade 9 at Parkside Collegiate Institute, Emily was a former student of the French Immersion Program at Wellington Street School and Homedale Elementary School. She was a creative and imaginative girl who loved to perform in plays, sing with her dad and her sister, and play the drums. Emily volunteered at school as office helper, lunch monitor, and safety patroller, and also at the Union Daycamp and the Men's Canadian Fastball Championships. She was an extraordinary babysitter who absolutely adored young children. In the summer of 2004, Emily represented her country at the World Transplant Games and was a gold medallist. She was also a proud spokesperson for the Annual Kinsmen 10k Run for Cystic Fibrosis. Despite a demanding daily medical regimen, she never hesitated to give to her community. We will celebrate Emily's life at Saint Anne's Centre in Saint Thomas on Wednesday, November 8, 2006 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. We have chosen to establish an Emily Morgan Foundation, and your donation to this fund is welcome.

Celebration of a life
Superlative after heartfelt superlative was used yesterday to describe the life and legacies of TAILOR/TAYLOR.
By Norman DE BONO and Jonathan SHER, Free Press Reporters, Mon., June 19, 2006
To Cal STILLER, it seemed strangely appropriate that J. Allyn TAILOR/TAYLOR passed away on Father's Day weekend.
After all, it's as though London, its business and philanthropic communities, lost their father figure, he said yesterday.
"The community really looked to him as their father. He was the de facto boss of the business community," said STILLER, a pioneering transplant surgeon here.
"He did not wield that, but it is the way we saw him. "
TAILOR/TAYLOR, 99, died Saturday afternoon. Those paying tribute yesterday described a business giant who gave tirelessly to the community and gently pushed people to be better.
Mr. T., as many Friends called him, was a relentless optimist, said a Londoner who read to him several times a week.
Margi NASH said TAILOR/TAYLOR's recent favourites included Jessie's Journey and Unusual Heroes: Canada's Prime Ministers and Fathers of Confederation.
His optimism was exemplified in his response whenever anyone asked how he was doing. "His answer was always one of two things," NASH said. 'Never better' or 'Better now that you're here.'"
When NASH visited TAILOR/TAYLOR Friday, he was too weak to speak. Even so, when NASH asked him how he was, he mouthed, "Never better."
"A joy, a blessing and a privilege -- that's what it meant knowing him," NASH said through tears.
While he deserved the nickname "Mr. London," he was also a patriotic Canadian, hosting a Canada Day party every year in his backyard.
Daughter Lynn FLEMING/FLEMMING recalled how, in the 1950s, while he was a Canada Trust executive, TAILOR/TAYLOR would go to the basement at Christmas to share a drink with the maintenance workers.
"He didn't care who you were," said FLEMING/FLEMMING. "He shopped at the A and P and bought Jane Parker pies for half-price. He would say, 'I am just a simple Prairie boy.' "
Don SMITH, founder of EllisDon Construction, said,He" left us an example and so many wonderful people have learned from him."
Equally at ease in the worlds of community, philanthropy and business, TAILOR/TAYLOR helped found the London Community Foundation, just as he laid the groundwork for the Robarts Research Institute and helped lead so many businesses by serving on their boards.
"He was a mentor to me," SMITH said. "I used to watch what he did and tried to follow his example. Often when I had to make a decision I thought, what would TAILOR/TAYLOR do? He was great help and guidance."
University of Western Ontario president Paul DAVENPORT described TAILOR/TAYLOR as "one of the great builders of postwar London."
TAILOR/TAYLOR, who served as University of Western Ontario chancellor, brought thousands of jobs to the city by helping lay the building blocks for a burgeoning business community. He was a lifelong proponent of education and research, DAVENPORT said.
"In addition to all his other accomplishments, J. Allyn was also a wonderful friend to so many people in this city. He could light up a room just by walking into it."
TAILOR/TAYLOR was also the only Londoner ever to head the national and provincial chambers of commerce simultaneously more than 35 years ago, said Gerry MacARTNEY, general manager of the London Chamber of Commerce.
"(It) is an inspiration to young leaders everywhere to look at a man like him. He led in a kind and calm way. Many barons of industry were tyrants, but TAILOR/TAYLOR had such a gentle approach. He was soft-spoken, but very focused."
Bill BRADY, who served on several boards with TAILOR/TAYLOR, said his long-time friend pushed people to become better than they thought they could be. Everyone who had any contact with TAILOR/TAYLOR learned from his example how to serve others, BRADY said.
STILLER added that others always looked to TAILOR/TAYLOR as a man with measured, solid ideas. "He was always quizzing me, asking me what was happening. He was always saying 'Tell me, tell me,' said STILLER.
"He had integrity with feet-on-the-ground pragmatism. He was a wise, wise man."
The first time Britta WINTHER spoke to TAILOR/TAYLOR, she was afraid he might throttle her. It was 1998 and TAILOR/TAYLOR had been a guest at the London Convention Centre to hear Prime Minister Jean Chretien at a fundraiser. A heavy back-drop curtain fell eight metres and TAILOR/TAYLOR disappeared beneath it.
WINTHER, who worked at the convention centre, phoned TAILOR/TAYLOR next day and braced herself. "As much as I tried to apologize, he would have none of it," she recalled.
Struck by his kindness, WINTHER invited him to lunch and the two struck up a Friendship.
"He was a modest, humble man who always wanted to talk about you. He made you feel great about yourself," she said.
Years before Fred GOSNELL became London's mayor, he was an unknown businessperson trying to get a start when he called TAILOR/TAYLOR's office and asked if they could meet.
TAILOR/TAYLOR saw him that very day, GOSNELL's son, Deputy Mayor Tom GOSNELL recalled.
"He treated my father the same as when he didn't even know him as he did when he was mayor.
GOSNELL said TAILOR/TAYLOR "made everyone in a room feel so important. He made us want to do so much more. And only after you left the room did you realize he had been the driving force."
TAILOR/TAYLOR was the last of a great generation of men that included publisher Walter Blackburn and brain surgeon Charles Drake, GOSNELL said. "They're a generation that left a legacy."
For the funeral, "we want to celebrate a life," said FLEMING/FLEMMING. "It will be a family-focus only. He has had so many accolades, it is appropriate this be just a family service."
Funeral Arrangements
Visitation is at James A. Harris Funeral Home Wednesday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. The service will take place at Saint_John the Evangelist Church at 280 Saint_James St. (at Wellington Street) Thursday at 11 a.m.
Anecdotes and quotes about and by J. Allyn TAILOR/TAYLOR
TAILOR/TAYLOR once said if he could change one moment of his life, it would be his birthdate. Until recently, he played weekly games of bridge, golf and billiards. "I'm enjoying life," he said, adding he would take as much of it as he could get.
"You should learn from any job you have, not only about human nature, but also about the basic principles of how to conduct yourself in the business world."
Reflecting on his favourite summer job, at a Winnipeg golf course in the 1920s
Mr. London is one name by which he was known. Many of London's power people called him Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR out of respect or Mr. T. out of affection. His Friends called him Allyn.
"I'm keenly aware of my own shortcomings. Do we have time to discuss them? No."
Long after retirement and into planning for the Robarts Research Institute, he would still convene meetings for 7: 30 a.m. When long-time (and younger) friend Bill BRADY protested, TAILOR/TAYLOR said, "Perhaps when I get to be your age, I'll want to sleep in, too."
"My father died at the age of 44 from a leaking (heart) valve, which… in those days was beyond medical science to deal with. Today (fixing it) is like filling a tooth, almost."
Reflecting on the genesis of his passion for funding medical research
TAILOR/TAYLOR called BRADY a few years ago to tell him a move was afoot to rename the Robarts Research Institute as the Queen Mother Elizabeth Research Institute. When BRADY protested, TAILOR/TAYLOR said: "April Fool's" and hung up.
When the historic TD Canada Trust building at Wellington and Dundas streets was named in his honour, TAILOR/TAYLOR cadged a kiss from Mayor Anne Marie DECICCO -- then five more kisses so the photographers could get it just right.

You were right here, having a blast.
I remember the smile you put on my face
You never let things get out of the pace.

I think of you often, sometimes I still cry.
In my heart and thoughts you are near
Remembering U as my friend who was dear.

TAILOR/TAYLOR, J. Allyn
By William BRADY, Page A24
Father, business leader, philanthropist. Born April 10, 1907, in Winnipeg. Died June 17 of natural causes at his home in London, Ontario, aged 99.
Modest, compassionate and always interested in others, Allyn became the man to go to when there was a community need. He chaired countless not-for-profit boards, served on many committees and raised millions of dollars. All this while managing a rapidly growing financial corporation.
Allyn TAILOR/TAYLOR was respected for his business acumen and his leadership at Canada Trust, a career of 40 years culminating in his retirement as chairman in 1979. When he arrived in London, the company had only a few branches; when he stepped down, there were 200 doing millions in business annually. He once said, "When I got up each morning to go to work, I liked to say, 'God help the competition today.' " Still, he seemed to always make time for those who sought his advice, particularly young people.
He was modest and often self-deprecating: At a large community party celebrating his 95th birthday, he said: "I appreciate all these kudos but you seem to have confused longevity with ability."
His displeasure was evident on one occasion when someone addressed him as "Al." He frowned and in an aside to me, "That guy always calls me that, don't you ever do that!" A few days before, the university had conferred an honorary doctorate on him and he made it clear that while he was greatly honoured, he did not want to be addressed by the degree's honorific. I sent him this rhyme: "If you want to be his buddy, a very special pal / never call him Doctor and never, ever Al."
Allyn TAILOR/TAYLOR frequently used long-forgotten expressions; phrases he no doubt had heard as a child growing up in Winnipeg. If someone displeased him or failed to follow through on a promise or commitment he'd say, "Well, I am disappointed, he certainly blotted his copybook." When at a board or committee meeting names were proposed for certain roles and he thought the suggested person was the right one to serve, we'd hear, "Oh my yes, she's a ten-strike."
Allyn TAILOR/TAYLOR became impatient with any who took more time than he believed was necessary when they spoke. I was the target the day I rose to make a point; clearly he thought I was running overtime, "Well Mr. Brady has made a good point and while it took quite some time for him to do so, I believe it was time well spent."
Allyn and Betty TAILOR/TAYLOR were married for 62 years, until her death 1999. Their family: Ann FLEMING/FLEMMING of London, Lynn GRAHAM of Ottawa, John of Picton and seven grandchildren.
J. Allyn TAILOR/TAYLOR was the first chair of the McMichael Canadian Art Collection and chair of the Ontario Press Council. He was founder and chair of the London Community Foundation, which today donates more than $1-million annually.
He was a passionate supporter and promoter of medical research serving as chair of University Hospital and was founding chair of the Robarts Research Institute in London. He often said that his commitment to the areas of medicine and research was inspired by the death of his father when Allyn was just 12, from what is considered today as a minor defect of the heart valve.
Each year renowned scientists are honoured in his name when awarded the J. Allyn Taylor International Prize in Medicine. He was a founder of the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame and was appointed an Officer of the Order of Canada in 1982.
J. Allyn TAILOR/TAYLOR served his country and community with great distinction and has left an extraordinary legacy.
Bill BRADY is a friend and colleague of J. Allyn TAILOR/TAYLOR.

STENGEL, Richard " Rico" (1960-2006)
Died suddenly in Sturgeon Falls on February 3, 2006. Cherished husband and soul mate of Jesse RUSSELL, devoted son of Arnie and Thelma STENGEL of Seven Sisters, Manitoba, precious brother of Sharon and Joe LACEY and Barry and Rhonda McLEOD, treasured best friend of Patrick BRADY, loving guardian of Kawae, Takuk, Chum, Minodae and Weewae; adored and very special uncle, cousin and friend. Last week, Richard proudly celebrated 25 years of service with Environment Canada. Employees of the Meteorological Service of Canada across the country are mourning the loss of their admired and respected colleague. Richard's quiet selflessness and dedication were his hallmarks. His subtle humour and charm touched us all. A sensitive, creative and analytical thinker Richard approached all challenges with the same understated determination - from gardening and soap-making to computers and car repairs. His spirit will continue to inspire us as we hold him close in our hearts. A private cremation will take place on February 9th. A memorial service and celebration of Richard's life will be held in late spring. Cherished memories can be sent to uniquev@interlog.com.
