Former Wiarton mayor remembered
Barney McKILLOP would call from his winter home in Florida to talk about local news
By Scott DUNN, Page A3
Just remembering Barney McKILLOP made Ruthann CARSON smile.
McKILLOP's funeral took place Thursday but CARSON said talking about him made her feel better. He enjoyed life, he was upbeat and ready to tell a joke or set someone up for a prank.
McKILLOP, 80, died unexpectedly early Monday morning of an aneurysm. CARSON worked with him while he was mayor and she was the deputy chief administrative officer and later chief administrative officer of the town.
McKILLOP was passionately interested in Wiarton, while on council and after. He was elected first as a town councillor in 1985. During that term Wiarton was under provincial supervision for deep financial problems.
While on council, McKILLOP could be feisty, said Wiarton Echo publisher and editor Keith GILBERT. But he was also easy to get along with.
Even when he was upset about something, he usually laughed about it, GILBERT said.
"You either like him or hate him. He's very set in his ways," said Margaret McKILLOP, McKILLOP's wife for the past 13 years.
She described her husband as "fun-loving" and a "gambler" who owned race horses in New Jersey in partnership with others. He knew his way around a racing form as well as the card table when playing bridge.
McKILLOP was elected mayor in 1988 amid a house-cleaning by voters who favoured "new thinking" and McKILLOP's preference for more openness, CARSON said.
He served two terms before retiring in 1994, after which he and his wife took a trip around the world and started wintering in Florida.
Their world tour was taken partly by container ship. They also took trips to Indonesia, China a couple of times, Vietnam and Turkey. McKILLOP liked meeting different people and experiencing different cultures, said Margaret McKILLOP.
Though out of politics, McKILLOP remained interested in Wiarton affairs. He would call CARSON and others from his winter home in Florida to talk about news he'd read in the Wiarton Echo.
"It was always interesting to hear his point of view," CARSON said.
GILBERT said he would get several calls from McKILLOP every winter about news in the Echo, which he read in Florida. The last call was about the number of people who were running for mayor in South Bruce Peninsula.
"I liked him personally as a friend and as a mayor I think he did very well," GILBERT said.
McKILLOP was born in Toronto. He married, had one son and retired as an inspector for the Toronto Transit Commission.
He used to come up to Wiarton to fish and loved the area so he retired here, Margaret McKILLOP said. By then, his son, Brian McKILLOP, had already moved to Markdale.
Bernard (Barney) McKILLOP is survived by wife Margaret, his son Brian and his wife Sandra of Markdale and his grandchildren Janine (Mike) LOVE of Chesley and Jessica of London.
He leaves his step-children Carole (Mike) CLEARY of Allenford, Jim (Linda) WYONCH of Colpoy's Bay, Nancy WYONCH (Brian CLEAVER) of Port Elgin, Debbie (Steven) SCOTT of Port Elgin, Janet WYONCH of Milton and by seven step-grandchildren and one step-great grandchild. He was predeceased by his parents, his first wife, Dorothy, and his brother, Harold.

KING, John Lee
By Robert KING, Page A16
Architect, father, grandfather. Born November 17, 1929, in China. Died August 31, in Toronto, of cancer complications, aged 76.
John Lee KING was born the youngest of seven siblings and the only sibling born in China; the rest were born in Canada. John was born when his parents Lee KING and Chen Hong Yee had taken their children back to China for a two-year visit with their Popo (grandmother). Because of Canada's Chinese Exclusion Act of 1923, John could not be brought to Canada when the family returned and so he was left in the care of his grandmother. This caused John's parents great distress. Fortunately, they owned a Chinese laundromat in Burlington, Ontario, patronized by Member of Parliament Hughes CLEAVER; he used his influence on their behalf with the result that John became one of only 44 legal Chinese immigrants allowed into Canada between 1923 and 1947. Upon John's arrival his parents would not allow him to speak Chinese at home; his father insisted that he become assimilated. In later years, he would rue the fact that he could not speak Chinese as well as his older siblings.
During the war years, the family moved to Aurora, where his parents bought a restaurant called Dan's Café on Yonge Street; a favourite stop for servicemen en route to and from Camp Borden. Typically, all of the children were required to work in the restaurant. However, John, being the youngest, often was not relied upon as much as his siblings, and was able to sneak out to play sports. Like many immigrant families, John's parents did not see any value in sports but no one was more proud when John's midget hockey team won a championship.
In the late summer of 1948 John's parents sold the restaurant and moved to Toronto where he went from being a top student to being kicked out of Jarvis Collegiate. His father almost disowned him as he was hanging out in pool halls. Fortunately, he was also hanging out with his best friend Philip QUAN, a top art student at Central Tech Collegiate; it was during this time John met Norma WONG, a pretty cheerleader at Central Tech. John straightened up and became an independent student, eventually entering the School of Architecture at University of Toronto.
While in university John married Norma and celebrated the birth of his first child, Karen. At first John faced financial difficulty supporting a young family and coping with large school debts. John's parents put a down-payment on a house in Etobicoke and handed the mortgage to John and Norma. It all seemed so daunting until one day, as John was returning home from work, he had a revelation: He should go to the racetrack. So he did. It turned out to be most fortunate, as John won enough that night to pay off all of his debts and then some. He came home to Norma and threw the piles of money on the bed. He never again went back to the racetrack.
John went to work at three different firms before finally ending up at Bregman and Hamann in 1964 where he worked on the Skyline Tower in Niagara Falls, The Toronto-Dominion Centre, the Scarborough Town Centre and First Canadian Place, Canada's tallest skyscraper.
From 1984 until 1993, John was the managing partner and chairman of the board of Bregman and Hamann. During this period, the firm completed several projects abroad as well as BCE Place and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Broadcasting Centre.
John retired in 1994 and he and Norma, (by this time a successful and renowned interior designer) spent most of their winters in Ajijic, Mexico.
John passed away unexpectedly. His outstanding career has left a lasting physical mark on a number of cityscapes, and his charming personality and gentle, gracious manner made a lasting impression on the lives of his Friends and family.
Robert KING is John Lee KING's son.

KELLY, Dr. Norman Henry, M.D.
(September 17, 1921-January 8, 2006)
"Love between two children of God outlives the union, outlives failing bodies, outlives the earth itself. Love, in whatever celestial form it takes in heaven, lives on after the earthly shell has passed into dust. For the one who believes, death changes "goodbye" into other more hopeful words. I will see you soon my love. I cannot bring you back to me, but I can come to you. And I will." And he has. Norman KELLY died peacefully at home to join his beloved wife, Helen, of 60 years in the fourth mansion on the right just inside the Pearly Gates.
