Ex-college hockey star dies after alley attack
By Canadian Press, Wed., November 29, 2006
Toronto -- A former U.S. college hockey star who ended up on life support following a brutal attack in Toronto on the weekend died yesterday afternoon from his injuries.
Michael SERBA, 25, was struck in the head with an unknown object, possibly a brick, early Saturday morning after he left a bar.
He had been visiting over the U.S. Thanksgiving weekend from Norwich University in Vermont, which he originally attended on a hockey scholarship.
Police say SERBA was out with Friends about 12: 30 a.m. Saturday when he was sucker-punched after leaving a bar.
Rather than call 911, SERBA and his Friends searched for the culprit.
SERBA was a little ahead of his Friends when he was attacked in an alley. He suffered life-threatening injuries as a result of serious trauma to his head.
An autopsy is to take place in Toronto today.
Police say the attempted murder charge against Nicholas CROWDIS, 22, of Toronto, is expected to be upgraded at his next court appearance December 4.
SERBA played four successful seasons with the Norwich Cadets.
This year, the business major was attending graduate school and was expected to finish his studies next spring.

College student dies after attack
By Canadian Press, Page A19
Toronto -- A Canadian student attending a U.S. college where he had been a star hockey player died yesterday from injuries he suffered in a brutal attack in Toronto on the weekend.
Michael SERBA, 25, who had been on life-support since the attack, was struck in the head with an unknown object, possibly a brick, early Saturday morning after he left a bar.
He had returned home to Toronto over the U.S. Thanksgiving weekend from Norwich University in Vermont, where he was originally accepted on a hockey scholarship.
Police say Mr. SERBA was out with Friends around 12: 30 a.m. Saturday when he was sucker-punched after leaving a bar.
Rather than call 911, Mr. SERBA and his Friends searched for the culprit.
Mr. SERBA was walking ahead of his Friends when he was attacked in an alley and suffered a serious trauma to his head.
An autopsy is to take place in Toronto today.
Police say a charge of attempted murder laid against Nicholas CROWDIS, 22, of Toronto is expected to be upgraded at his next court appearance December 4.
Mr. SERBA played four seasons with the Norwich Cadets. This year, the business major was attending graduate school and was expected to finish his studies next spring.
Toronto Police Detective Shehara VALLES said Monday that Mr. SERBA's parents described their son as having "a passion for life and family, hockey and his Friends."
The attack on Mr. SERBA cast a pall over the Cadets' victory last weekend at Norwich's Kreitzberg Arena, where the team defeated Plattsburgh State 4-2 Saturday in the championship game of the Primeline Great Northern Shootout tournament.

Brick attack victim, 25, dies
By Phinjo GOMBU, Staff Reporter
A 25-year-old Toronto man and college hockey star hit in the head by an object police say might have been a brick died yesterday.
Mike SERBA, who was home in Toronto for American Thanksgiving from Norwich University in Vermont, was attacked early Saturday morning in an alleyway near Bloor St. W. and Jane St.
Toronto police said SERBA had been at a nearby bar. When he went to get money from a nearby bank machine, SERBA said somebody "sucker-punched" him.
Rather than call police, he and his Friends who were at the bar went outside in search of the attacker. SERBA was then attacked with a blunt object, which put him in a coma.
SERBA, who was doing his master's in business at Norwich University, was also captain of the hockey team last year.
Nicholas CROWDIS, 22, of no fixed address, is charged with attempted murder. Police said yesterday the charge will be upgraded at his next court appearance at Old City Hall on Monday.

Slain hockey player 'had class'
Former Vermont teammates turn out to honour 25-year-old killed by blow to the head
By John GODDARD, Staff Reporter
A tender story about Michael SERBA's sense of sportsmanship started the rustle of tissues at his funeral yesterday.
Father Andrew FIGOL delivered a eulogy for the 25-year-old former hockey star and scholar, who died last week after being smashed in the head after leaving a Bloor West Village bar.
The tribute came from several sources, the priest said, including a message from a young Vermont father.
"This guy had class," said the priest, quoting the unnamed father, who recalled a critical hockey match last season when SERBA was captain of the Norwich University Cadets in rural Vermont.
"Prior to the game," the story went, "my son was sitting in a tunnel area of the arena. He was wearing a Middlebury jersey. He was obviously a Middlebury fan."
Norwich and Middlebury were arch-rivals.
SERBA, not yet in uniform, started chatting with the boy sitting alone and spent 20 minutes talking with him about hockey.
"When the teams came on the ice, I noticed Norwich player No. 20 tap my son on the shoulder with his stick," the father recalled it was the first time the boy realized that he had been talking to a rival player.
"Norwich won," the father also recalled.
"As the team came off the ice, my son gave No. 20 the thumbs-up."
Nearly 500 mourners crowded into St. Demetrius Ukrainian Byzantine Catholic Church for the two-hour service, in the Eglinton St. and Royal York Rd. area of Etobicoke.
That included two busloads of hockey players, fans and Friends attending from Norwich U, about a three-hour drive south of Montreal.
Two in particular stood out.
They were wearing both the home and away versions of Norwich team jersey No. 20, crimson and gold, with a big C on the upper left chest.
"Why did this happen?" said FIGOL, lamenting the senselessness of the death. "Why him? Why did he have to go in the way that he did?
"All the knowledge in the world cannot explain why."
SERBA, 25, grew up in Toronto and attended St. Demetrius before leaving for Norwich on a hockey scholarship.
After four years, he left the team this season, when his eligibility ran out, to pursue an M.B.A. but continued to live with former teammates.
On a Toronto visit the weekend before last, he met up with Friends at a west-end club.
At one point he left to use a bank machine and returned to say he had been "sucker-punched," police later said.
SERBA then led his Friends in search of the assailant and was smashed with a brick-like object in a passageway connecting Bloor St. to the Jane subway station.
He was put on life support in hospital but died on Tuesday of last week.
SERBA's family has asked for privacy but a few days ago issued a statement saying it had donated the young man's organs.
"Out of this tragedy we are comforted that Michael's great many qualities of strength, determination, compassion and goodness continue to shine through beyond his life," it said.
Charged with second-degree murder in SERBA's death is Nicholas CROWDIS, 22, of Toronto.

Canada's anti-smoking face succumbs to lung cancer
By Canadian Press, Tues., May 23, 2006
Toronto -- Heather CROWE, considered by some to be the face of Canada's anti-smoking movement, has succumbed to lung cancer in Ottawa at the age of 61.
The longtime restaurant server is widely known for television ads in which she tells how she contracted cancer from second-hand smoke at the restaurant where she worked.
CROWE's death comes just one week before the Smoke Free Ontario Act goes into effect.
The act will ban smoking in any enclosed public places and add restrictions to the promotion, handling and display of cigarettes in stores.
Jim WATSON, the Liberal member of provincial parliament for Ottawa-West-Nepean, was a frequent customer at the restaurant where CROWE worked and calls her the "matriarch of the anti-smoking movement."
He said CROWE told him she really wanted to live to see the anti-smoking legislation come into effect.
"It's very sad she's not going to be here to see it, but she should be very happy that because of her influence, Ontarians will be able to breathe easier as a result of the legislation on May 31," WATSON said.
He said CROWE was an unlikely activist. "She fell into this anti-smoking passion because she experienced first-hand what so many people have suffered over the years."
CROWE was the first person to win an Ontario Workers Safety and Insurance Board claim for full compensation because her cancer was caused by occupational exposure to cigarette smoke.

RADOSTITS, Doctor Otto M., C.M., D.V.M.
(August 31, 1934-December 15, 2006)
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Otto Martin RADOSTITS on December 15, 2006. The family is thankful for his many years of wonderful health and his productive life. We are joyful that his courageous battle with kidney cancer is over and he is at peace with his God. Otto was born in Edmonton, the eldest son of Austrian immigrants, Stephen and Hermine RADOSTITS (deceased), who instilled in their four boys the values of the Roman Catholic faith, a strong work ethic and the importance of a good education. Otto's early years on a mixed farm and his high school job at the Blue Cross Animal Hospital in Edmonton were the beginnings of a life long passion for veterinary medicine. Otto received his DVM from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1959 and a Master of Science degree from the University of Saskatchewan (U. of S.) in 1967. As a veterinary educator, clinician and author, Otto had a profound influence on his students, on the establishment and growth of the Western College of Veterinary Medicine at the U. of S. and on his beloved profession. On his retirement in 2002, he was appointed Professor Emeritus and the Western Canadian Association of Bovine Practitioners established the O.M. Radostits Legacy Fund to fund an annual lecture series on bovine medicine. Otto received many awards and honours during his career. He treasured his teaching awards, particularly the Master Teacher award from the U. of S. He was humbled and proud to be made a member of the Order of Canada in 2003. In 2006 he received the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association President's Award to recognize his dedication and contributions to the Association and he also received the Sask Centennial Medal. Otto's wise counsel, mentorship and his numerous authoritative textbooks on large animal medicine were sought after nationally and internationally. Otto loved classical music, attending the Saskatoon Symphony, singing (especially the annual WCVM student Christmas carolling), reading, tennis, biking and long walks, even at -30°. His most special times were spent at family celebrations with his wife and extended family. He loved to debate the issues of the day - his daily reading of the Globe and Mail made him a formidable debater and kept us all informed. Although, his profession allowed him to travel the world, there was no place like home. He was a proud Canadian and always thankful for the many opportunities our country provides for all. Otto leaves his loving and devoted wife, Ruth (Clancy,) six children and their families: Anna ALDERSON (Pryce,) Liam and Erin; Eileen RADOSTITS, Gershon and Sophia Julia RADOSTITS (Richard HONG,) Sebastian and Justin; Stephen RADOSTITS (Robin FISHER), Todd, Mark, Kurt and Joshua; Anita LIVINGSTONE (Brent,) Kayden and Chloe; and Jennifer ARTHURS (Richard,) Brendan and Lauren; his three brothers Ivan (Mary Agnes), Peter (Brenda) and Francis (Pat) and their families; his sister-in-law Velma KELEHER and brother-in-law Michael CLANCY and their families his special cousins Mitzi CROWE (Fred,) Mary METZ (Harry,) Jean EASTWOOD (Kirby) and their families; and the RADOSTITS clan in Chicago. Otto also leaves many Friends and veterinary colleagues around the world. We all will miss deeply his strong presence, his beautiful loud voice and his challenges. Prayer service will be held at Holy Family Church (110 - 104th Street, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan S7N 1M8) on Thursday, December 21, 2006 at 7 p.m. and the Funeral Mass will be held at Holy Family on Friday, December 22, 2006 at 11 a.m. Private family interment at Holy Cross Cemetery in Edmonton to be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Saint Paul's Hospital Foundation Inc. (1702 - 20th St. W, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, S7M 9Z9), Holy Family Church Building Fund or a charity of choice. Arrangements in care of John Schachtel - Mourning Glory Funeral Services, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (306-978-5200).
