Jack McARTHUR, 79: Star editor, columnist
Former business editor knew his stuff
'He was a wonderful curmudgeon'
By Kenneth KIDD, Feature Writer
You could almost get the measure of Jack McARTHUR just by looking at him, not least in what became his natural environment.
Until well into the 1980s, the Toronto Star newsroom was still a sepia place, littered with clanging old typewriters and big, black telephones. The air was filled with yellow smoke.
And there McARTHUR would sit, stooped over his Underwood with a White Owl cigar in his mouth, wearing the same grey cardigan he donned every day at work.
When McARTHUR was writing his business column -- and he did that five times a week, plus a stock market wrap-up for Saturday -- there wasn't a better portrait of sheer concentration amid chaos.
That is how it came to pass that one day, mid-column, McARTHUR blindly tried to put his cigar in the ashtray behind him. He missed. The White Owl rolled away on his desk and was soon igniting a pile of papers.
But McARTHUR just kept on typing, hardly glancing back as John HONDERICH -- then ostensibly his boss as business editor -- rushed over to douse the flames.
"Firefighting was only one part of being the business editor," says HONDERICH, who went on to be the Star's publisher. "Keeping Jack happy was the other. He was a wonderful curmudgeon, truly one of the greats who knew his stuff inside out. He lived business through and through and he was a prolific column writer."
McARTHUR, who retired from the Star in 1991 but kept on writing three freelance columns a week for many years, died Tuesday (May 9) at age 79.
A two-finger typist of the old school, McARTHUR "sounded like a Gatling gun when he was hammering out his column," recalls Star columnist James DAW.
His pronouncements were often pithy, tart and knowing. And despite his intimidating appearance, younger reporters would often seek his expert opinion, usually in the minutes before deadline.
McARTHUR's standard response always began with a kind of howling, half-moan: "Aaaaagghh." That would be followed by something axiomatic, like this one about stock-market gains or losses that investors hadn't actually realized by selling the stock in question: "It was only paper then and it's only paper now."
"God, how I loved him," recalls Diane FRANCIS, who got her start in business journalism at the Star in the 1980s. "We were all kind of frightened of him, but his bark was worse than his bite. He was crusty, but boy, he knew lots."
McARTHUR was likely the only person in the department who read every Bank of Canada Review from cover to cover, along with piles of Statistics Canada reports. But except for his weekly story on the stock market, numbers rarely made their way into his columns.
"He'd just done the research in order to tell the story," says DAW.
And he had a way of seeing through complexity and spin-doctoring, says Helen HENDERSON, a former assistant financial editor and now Star columnist. "He could boil it down to its essence, into something you could understand, without ever talking down to you."
Saskatchewan-born in 1927, McARTHUR went on to take a degree in political science and economics at the University of Saskatchewan before launching his career in journalism. He worked at the Regina Leader-Post and The Western Producer before landing at the Financial Post, where he eventually became Montreal bureau chief.
Beland HONDERICH, then the Star's editor-in-chief, hired McARTHUR in 1960 as business editor, a post he held for the next 14 years, before going back to writing full-time.
In those days, editors also wrote columns and McARTHUR's personnel file soon became filled with praise from senior managers.
"What's he worth to the Star is almost incalculable," wrote one. "He's by far the best financial writer in Canada."
Writing was what mattered to McARTHUR, and he had little patience with the more bureaucratic aspects of newsroom management. Legend has it that McARTHUR once stopped going to management meetings unless Beland HONDERICH specifically asked for his presence.
In a typical memo to senior managers, McARTHUR had a blunt critique of a new budget-making process for the newsroom: "The new one seems fine in theory but bad in practice."
But McARTHUR had a soft underbelly. "The gentler side of Jack was that he was a mentor and a sage to many business reporters," says John HONDERICH. "He always had a moment of time to talk to people. He was a person I constantly went to seeking advice. His judgment was impeccable."
Kenneth KIDD worked with McARTHUR in the 1980s and served as the Star's business editor from 2000 to 2005.

Dream dies with car crash
Jeffrey DAWDRY was working toward becoming a cop.
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter, Wed., September 13, An Ingersoll man working toward his dream of becoming a police officer was killed in a car crash this week.
Jeffrey DAWDRY, who had volunteered since 2004 as an auxiliary officer with Waterloo Regional police, graduated only two weeks ago from the police foundations program at London's Westervelt College.
"About the last three or four years (his focus) was strictly to become a police officer," Garry DAWDRY said of his son yesterday. "He would have made a damn good one, too."
The 37-year-old DAWDRY was in Sarnia on Monday, working for a lawn care company, when his vehicle left the road and crashed, killing him.
His family was told he had a heart attack while driving.
A Huron Park high school graduate, DAWDRY grew up largely in Woodstock, but had moved to Ingersoll in recent years.
He's survived by his wife, Jennifer, and eight-year-old son, Ryan.
Family described DAWDRY as a smooth talker with a great sense of humour whose hobbies included playing horseshoes.
At Westervelt, where he had just completed the year-long police program, DAWDRY's death blindsided officials.
"We're extremely shocked and saddened," said Linda KALMIKOV, who oversees the police course and knew DAWDRY well.
"He was extremely well-liked by all the staff, all the officers who teach here and all his classmates without exception. Just a really dynamic individual."
The school's flag was at half-mast yesterday, KALMIKOV noted.
Auxiliary officers work alongside full-time police, but are unarmed and unpaid.
Waterloo police remembered DAWDRY, who worked mainly in the Cambridge unit, as a dedicated worker whose death has rattled the force.
"Jeffrey… committed a fair bit of his spare time (to making) Waterloo a better place to live," Insp. Bryan LARKIN said.
"He far exceeded the expectations of our organization."

Anastasia WAWRYSHYN, 99: Hard worker lived for family
By Leslie FERENC, Staff Reporter
Every Friday, Anastasia WAWRYSHYN's grandchildren would race out of their classrooms at Saint_Josaphat Catholic School, across Franklin Ave. and straight to Baba's kitchen.
There, they'd be greeted with a big smile and an even bigger bowl of her light-as-a-cloud potato-filled perohy.
Of course, they couldn't eat just one. And no matter how many of those mouthwatering delicacies the four of them gobbled up, they knew there would be plenty more to take home for dinner.
"Baba always made enough for everybody," Michael WAWRYSHYN said of his mother who was much loved for her made-from-scratch traditional Ukrainian cooking and her open-hearted hospitality.
WAWRYSHYN died November 3, two months before her 100th birthday. She'd suffered a stroke 10 days earlier, the same day a sister passed away in Ukraine.
Family was everything for WAWRYSHYN who was born in the tiny Ukrainian village of Teplyts, January 3, 1907, in what was then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The eldest of nine children only six survived to adulthood -- she understood full well what it meant to struggle. Her parents were poor farmers who eked out a living on the the land, exchanging eggs and milk or freshly picked forest mushrooms for the things they couldn't produce themselves, said WAWRYSHYN of his mother's early years.
WAWRYSHYN decided to leave her beloved Ukraine after the death of her intended. He'd immigrated to Argentina to log the forests but died of malaria.
Riding by horse and buggy along dirt roads to the nearest train station, the feisty and tenacious 19-year-old travelled to Germany and then to England where she boarded a ship for Halifax. A stranger in a strange land who didn't know a living soul in Canada and didn't speak the language, the young woman forged ahead travelling west to Saskatoon in search of work. En route, WAWRYSHYN befriended a young Ukrainian woman and the two kindred spirits became fast Friends. Those were difficult but happy days, said her son. Both worked as domestics, with WAWRYSHYN taking a job in a boarding house for farm children attending high school in the city. She always looked forward to Sunday. It was spent at church, which was the centre of life for young Ukrainian immigrants who had settled in Saskatoon. After services, they attended teas and concerts and enjoyed the company of new Friends.
WAWRYSHYN and her friend later moved to Toronto, where she met and married her husband Prokip.
The couple moved to Franklin Ave. in 1939 and lived there all their lives. At the time, the majority of their neighbours were Ukrainian, settling in the close-knit west-end community near large factories where they could find work. Their three children, Michael, Mary and Anne, were born and raised in the old neighbourhood.
Having completed only Grade 3, WAWRYSHYN was passionate when it came to learning, determined her children would be well-educated and have the opportunities she didn't, said her son, a retired Toronto high school teacher.
A deeply pious woman, WAWRYSHYN's religious and social life revolved around the church. She was a long-time and active parishioner at Saint_Josaphat Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral down the street from the family's home. She sang in the choir and was a founding member of the cathedral's chapter of the Ukrainian Catholic Women's League of Canada. "She just wanted a chance to make a better life and was happy to have it," said her son.
Deeply proud of her Ukrainian roots, WAWRYSHYN passed on her love of her homeland and its rich culture to her children who attended Ukrainian schools and were involved in various community organizations.
A serious individual devoted to her family, she was fiercely independent. WAWRYSHYN continued to work part-time until the age of 71 even though there was no need, her son said.
"And she refused to cash in her first pension cheque because she said she didn't need it," he added.
"The Depression and World War 2 shattered the dreams of bringing her family to Canada. Over the years, she helped support her family, sending parcels of food and clothing and a few dollars hidden in the lining of a coat, where she prayed they wouldn't be discovered and confiscated by Soviet officials. The packages included dozens of kerchiefs -- the colourful woollen scarves typically worn by women in villages across Ukraine. They were as valuable as gold back home. "Those kerchiefs paid for two houses there," said WAWRYSHYN. His mother never returned to her homeland.
Predeceased by her husband, WAWRYSHYN leaves her son and his wife Helen, daughter Mary BERKETA and husband Ron and daughter Anne; grandchildren Olena WAWRYSHYN and husband Oleh LESZCZYSZYN, Oksana WAWRYSHYN, Stephanie DAWE and husband Greg and Christine YUZWIN and husband Nick as well as great-grand_sons Matthew and Michael DAWE. She also leaves behind her sister Kateryna, 94, in Ukraine, as well as many nephews and nieces.

FICK, Ruth Anna (formerly POWERS, née WOOLL)
Died peacefully in her 92nd year after losing a fight with pneumonia in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. Ruth was born in Saginaw, Michigan, to the late John Oliver WOOLL and the former Edith Eliza BAILEY. Ruth attended Saginaw High and continued her education with secretarial studies. She met a young Canadian Evangelist, the Reverend George Max POWERS, senior. They fell in love, were married, moved to Sarnia, had four daughters and later moved to Walsingham where George pastored the Free Methodist church; there they had a son. George died of cancer in 1947 and Ruth continued as a lay pastor in Walsingham for the next three years. In 1951 Ruth was again in love and married William Ernest FICK, senior, of Marston. The family moved to a farm at R.R.#3, Tillsonburg where Ruth had another son. Ruth had a full life, raising a family, farming, playing an active role in the Cornell Women's Institute, and for many years holding positions of service at the Tillsonburg Free Methodist church: youth leader, Sunday school teacher, pianist, organist and board secretary. Ernest died in 1990 and in 1993 Ruth moved to the senior apartments at 31 Maple Lane, Tillsonburg, where she met many new Friends. In 2005 she moved to the F.J. Davey Home in Sault Ste. Marie, where she quickly adapted, again making more new Friends and enjoying delicious meals. Until contracting pneumonia, she remained mentally active, e-mailing and chatting online, and hearing, for the first time, a live performance of Handel's Messiah - a special treat was arriving early, catching the end of rehearsal and hearing her favourite song, the Hallelujah Chorus, twice. It is common to hear her Friends and family say they valued her Friendship and prayer support. Her passing is their loss, not hers. She will be deeply missed. Ruth was the dear mother and mother-in-law of Lois STOVER; Tillsonburg; Geraldine POWERS (deceased 2001;) Edith GARWOOD (deceased 1999,) Don (Pat) GARWOOD, Uruguay; Ruth (Joseph) INFURNARI, Dunnville; George POWERS (deceased 1995,) Linda MAE- POWERS, Haliburton; and William (Carol) FICK, Sault Ste.

Trying to reconcile a man's life and death
Friends are wondering how a college student from a good family ended up shot dead by police, writes Anthony REINHART
By Anthony REINHART, Page A11
Toronto -- Until a couple of weeks ago, anyone who knew the real Shelton McKENZIE would have expected to find him out clubbing last night, toasting his 21st birthday on some Toronto dance floor in smooth urban attire and a fresh pair of Jordans.
Instead, his Friends dressed for a visitation yesterday at a funeral home in his hometown of Ajax, east of Toronto, to file past Mr. McKENZIE's coffin and wonder whether they really knew him at all.
Specifically, they've been wondering how Mr. McKENZIE -- who came from a middle-class suburban family, who worked as a produce clerk through high school, who had young women lining up for his ever-respectful attention, and who took police courses in college just last fall -- wound up shot dead by police this month.
It happened just before dawn on Thursday, April 13, near an upscale home in the Thornhill community north of Toronto, where the THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON family had just endured a home invasion robbery.
York Regional Police arrived as Mr. McKENZIE and another person fled in the THOMPSONs' pickup truck. Officers opened fire on the truck, killing Mr. McKENZIE. The second man ran off and holed up in another home and was arrested within hours.
Ontario's Special Investigations Unit, which probes deaths and injuries related to police, is still examining the killing of Mr. McKENZIE.
But York police have linked the two men to five home invasions in and around Toronto since late February, including the gunpoint robbery of Sherry COOPER, chief economist at BMO Nesbitt Burns, and her husband, Peter.
As she squinted through the murk of predawn to find two masked men standing in her bedroom, Ms. COOPER felt surprised, bewildered and terrified on the morning of March 13.
Police say Mr. McKENZIE was one of the two mud-splattered men standing before her and her husband. The pair had broken into the COOPERs' ravine-side home in Hogg's Hollow, an exclusive enclave in North Toronto.
They bound the couple with duct tape, ransacked the house and fled with cash, jewellery, computers and BlackBerrys.
Their masks, and the shock that gripped the COOPERs, made them all but impossible to identify.
"We refer to the 'old guy' and the 'young guy' when we speak to each other, or the 'big guy,' Ms. COOPER told The Globe and Mail, "and we're not even sure we're referring to the same people."
Ms. COOPER, 55, was also caught without her glasses or contact lenses. "I'm not blind without my glasses, but it was pleasingly fuzzy, believe me. I didn't particularly want to be 100-per-cent conscious."
She was conscious enough, however, to talk her way to some relief after one of the men, armed with a gun, pinned her to the bed.
"He said he wanted jewellery and I said, 'Let me show you… where it is,' Ms. COOPER said. "So, fortunately, that got us to stand up and walk in there" to where her valuables were stored.
The couple were led downstairs and taped to a pillar. One man stood guard, pointing a gun at them, the other combed the house, selecting items to fill his backpack and tossing others to the floor.
Asked whether either man seemed like a novice, or a junior partner, Ms. COOPER had this to say about the one who stood guard: "Until the very end I would have thought that he was more nervous, and that he wasn't as aggressive, he wasn't a leader," she said.
"However, at the end, I managed to get myself out of the tape, and it was that stand-guard guy that saw me. And then he grabbed me and, you know, pulled me up the steps and told me, now he's going to have to hurt me, now he's going to have to shoot me, and he threw me down on the floor and said he was going to have to shoot me.
"And it was the other one who said, 'Take her back downstairs.' So they just retaped us."
"There wasn't, like, a good cop and a bad cop; there wasn't a leader and a follower," she said. "They were brutal. They clearly hated us, just [because of] what we had."
But for the people who knew or encountered Shelton McKENZIE, nothing is very clear. No one -- from coaches and former co-workers to Friends and the police themselves -- has been able to reconcile the way he lived with the way he died.
"I really don't know how or why he became involved," Detective Sergeant Fred MOFFATT of York's holdup squad said, adding that police have seen more young people from trouble-free backgrounds jumping "right into doing robberies."
Sometimes the goal is to win acceptance from a gang. Others are dragged in by underworld creditors, such as drug dealers.
"I don't know if that's the case here, so I would never say that," Det. Sgt. MOFFATT said. "We're still investigating and still trying to figure out exactly where he comes from. But yeah, it's a mystery."
Mr. McKENZIE's parents, who have requested privacy from reporters, are "just blown away" by what happened, said Lance BROWN, their pastor at Refuge City Pentecostal Church in Ajax. "I knew Shelton. He was a great kid," Mr. BROWN said.
At the No Frills on Kingston Road in Pickering, Tony CORNACCHIA recalled how Mr. McKENZIE "always asked for as many hours as I could give him" in the produce department, where he was the most experienced part-timer, until he left the job a year ago. "I left him in charge quite a few times, on evenings and weekends."
Mr. CORNACCHIA remembered driving the young man home to his parents' relatively new house in west Ajax, where he lived with an older brother, a younger brother and a sister. He described the family as hard-working and strict, particularly the mother, who insisted that her son help pay his own way.
"It seemed like they were a very disciplined family," he said, and when he heard the news of Mr. McKENZIE's death, "I was surprised just like everyone else."
Ms. COOPER had trouble squaring the wholesome image of Mr. McKENZIE with the man who caused her to feel such terror that morning, a terror that she said has changed her life forever.
"It is inconceivable to me that some normal, 20-year-old, good kid finds himself just accidentally in this kind of situation," she said. "I have a son who's not much older than that and, honestly, I just can't even fathom how you get yourself in that situation unless you've been… involved with some real bad people for a while."
If that's the case, Shelton McKENZIE kept his secret life well hidden.
At J. Clarke Richardson Collegiate, where he graduated in 2004, basketball coaches Steve DAWSON and Mike McFETTERS stood in the gym last week, puzzled.
"Whatever happened, we didn't see it coming," said Mr. DAWSON, a middle-aged man who traded easy, good-natured jibes with the popular all-star nicknamed Springz for his jumping prowess.
Mr. McFETTERS said his star rebounder avoided situations that looked like trouble and could take a beating on the court without losing his cool.
"He wasn't a violent kid," he said, but acknowledged he'd seen Mr. McKENZIE just three times, for a total of about 20 minutes, in the two years since he left Richardson. The last time was just before Christmas, when the young man dropped by the school after his first semester in the police foundations program at Durham College in Oshawa.
Mr. McFETTERS said Mr. McKENZIE was conflicted over whether to continue his studies, citing the cost and the commute as challenges.
"If he wasn't sure what he wanted to do, he didn't want to go [back to college] until he could figure things out," the coach said.
With that, he asked Mr. McFETTERS about his wife and daughter, and congratulated him on the impending birth of a second child.
With his death, "there's just questions that I don't know if we're ever going to get the answers to now," the coach said.
Similar questions are circulating among Mr. McKENZIE's Friends, 236 of whom are linked to his profile on hi5.com, a Web gathering place. Since his death, many have posted photos and comments, written in the vernacular of on-line chat.
"i cant begin 2 understand y USA did wat USA did," wrote one. 'it wasnt ur thing… it wasnt like u. buh im not tryna hold nothing on u. Ire gota 4give u… even tho now ur gone 4ever."
Several young women claimed Mr. McKENZIE as their dream man, and gave accounts of long telephone conversations, nights out dancing, tender moments and hopes for a future together.
In an interview this week, Jennifer VIEIRA, 19, said Mr. McKENZIE's attractiveness was no mystery when she met him after the 2004 Caribana parade in downtown Toronto. He was not only well-dressed, but also a gentleman.
"He said, 'I'll call you in a couple of hours,' and he actually called me back later," she said. "He was coming off real. He wasn't being fake at all."
What was real and what was fake is sure to cross the minds of many at Mr. McKENZIE's funeral this morning, inside the Revivaltime Tabernacle in Pickering.
But inside the church and out, it seems, God only knows.

Crash shatters 2 families
Newmarket, Huntsville couples killed
One family was moving west, the other returning
By Bob MITCHELL and Tamara CHERRY, Staff Reporters
Two Ontario couples en route to fresh starts in their lives -- one moving out west, the other returning -- met tragedy instead when their vehicles collided on a northern highway. Five people were killed.
Shawna BAKOS- BIANCHI, 32, and her husband, David BIANCHI, 34, were moving back from Winnipeg to Newmarket to await the arrival in three weeks of their second child.
Huntsville residents Blair PALADICHUK, 41, and Sandy FELLER- PALADICHUK, 46, were heading to hotel jobs in the northern Saskatchewan town of La Ronge.
They were killed on Highway 17 near White River last Sunday when their pickup collided with an sport utility vehicle driven by BAKOS- BIANCHI, who died in the accident along with her 1½-year-old daughter, Victoria, and her mother, Joan BAKOS, 64.
David BIANCHI, 34, who was driving ahead of his family in a U-Haul filled with their belongings, discovered the terrible scene moments after seeing dust and dirt flying into the dusk sky in the rear-view mirror of his rented vehicle.
"David stopped the vehicle and ran back and found them. I don't think there are any words that can describe what he saw or felt," BIANCHI's uncle, Ciro LUPO, said yesterday.
"This is something that's going to take a long time for everybody to get over. Oh God. It's going to get a lot worse before it gets better. A lot worse."
Originally from Scarborough, the couple married in May 2003 and moved to Winnipeg soon after when BAKOS- BIANCHI was transferred there by General Motors, LUPO said, adding her husband is a self-employed painter.
"She had taken maternity leave and they decided to move back to Ontario so they could be close to their family and even bought a home right next door to (her parents) Joan and Vic," LUPO said.
"Vic is an only child so he has nobody now. He's lost his wife, his daughter and his granddaughter."
The Paladichuks were a close couple as well, relatives say.
"Blair was a chef. Sandy ran hotels and resorts," PALADICHUK's sister, Kristin INGRAHAM, said from her parents' home in St. Catharines.
"They worked together; they did absolutely everything together."
They were regarded as "very much free spirits," INGRAHAM said, passing on words from her parents. "They were not big-city Toronto people at all. They were just a couple who were truly in love."
INGRAHAM said her family has been under a lot of stress since the tragedy. Her parents are devastated.
"My parents loved her as much as they loved him."
The couple married about 12 years ago, each bringing two children from previous relationships. They spent a few years living in the Yukon before moving to a home just outside Algonquin Park.
The decision to move out west didn't come easily, as it meant PALADICHUK would have to leave INGRAHAM, his only sibling, as she battled cancer.
"He was just kind of torn because I have cancer and he was really against it (the move,)" INGRAHAM said. "I'm really quite sick and he really didn't want to leave because I'm right between my treatments. He was very involved in my kids' lives."
However, with his wife's family in Edmonton, the couple decided to move to be closer to them.
"They kind of went back and forth to decide whether or not to fly," INGRAHAM said. "They decided to drive because they thought that it would be more of an adventure."
But not without stopping in St. Catharines to spend a week with PALADICHUK's family.
"It was just a nice week. The whole family was together and we went out for dinners, we had barbecues," INGRAHAM said, adding the family celebrated FELLER- PALADICHUK's 46th birthday during their visit.
"They had left here at 8 o'clock Sunday morning and I guess the accident happened exactly 12 hours later. We were waiting for them to call (that night) and we never got the call."
It wasn't until the following afternoon that they got word on the couple's fate.
FELLER- PALADICHUK was pronounced dead at the scene, they were told, while PALADICHUK held on for a while longer before being pronounced dead in hospital.
Staff Sgt. Dan DAWSON of the Ontario Provincial Police's Superior East detachment in Wawa said their investigation indicates that BAKOS- BIANCHI was driving when she suddenly slid onto the gravel shoulder.
"They were heading south on Highway 17 and she only was on the shoulder momentarily but then shot across into the path of the northbound pickup," DAWSON said.
"We have no idea what caused it. We don't know whether something distracted her. There was nothing mechanically wrong with either vehicle.
"No witnesses: survived the crash so we'll probably never know what happened."
Police said everybody involved was wearing seat belts and the child was strapped in a car seat.
"But it wouldn't have mattered considering the severity of the collision because nobody could have survived," DAWSON said. "Both vehicles were travelling at about the posted highway speed of 90 km/h and visibility was clear.
"Other than the husband's vehicle, they were the only vehicles on the road at that time."
Family members said they've learned their loved ones had initially stopped in White River to get some gas, but it was too busy so they decided to drive another 90 kilometres to Wawa where they were going to spend the night.
"Shawna's last day of work was Friday and they left on Saturday afternoon," LUPO said.
"After stopping at White River, they had only been on the road for about five or six kilometres when the crash happened.
"If you've ever driven up north, it doesn't take a lot to go onto the gravel. It's so easy to over-correct. I suspect that's what happened."
Once they got the call, LUPO and two other uncles immediately drove to Wawa to be with BIANCHI.
"He was all alone and we didn't want him to have to deal with the horrific events all on his own," LUPO said.
"I can't say enough about the people and the community of Wawa.
"Father Trevor (SCARFONE) stayed with David in a local church to comfort him until we got there. Everybody we dealt with was amazing, from Ontario Provincial Police officer Adam GOODLETT to the people who run the Wawa Motor Inn, who didn't charge us for the room."
Friends and family can attend visitation tonight from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and tomorrow from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Chapel Ridge Funeral Home on Woodbine Ave. in Markham.
Funeral mass is at 11: 30 a.m. Saturday at Saint_John Chrysostom Catholic Church on Ontario St. in Newmarket with interment at Holy Cross Cemetery.
