GRAY/GREY, Mary " Peggy" (née BARNES)
By Donna DENISON, Page A22
Wren, war bride, volunteer, mother. Born on October 23, 1918, in Sutton-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, England. Died on May 26 in Markham, Ontario, of natural causes, aged 87.
Peggy BARNES -- no one used her given name, Mary -- was the youngest of four children in a prosperous family in England's East Midlands. As a child, Peggy was an obvious choice to walk the household's assorted corgis and Great Danes. She was also a suitable target for her older brothers to toss into the rhododendron bush on occasion. After attending local schools, she kept the books for local businesses and then began nursing training.
Ordinarily, Peggy would have expected to celebrate her 21st birthday with a big party and dance, and maybe with the family's gift of the sporty MG she longed for. But she turned 21 in October, 1939, so no such celebration was possible. These were not ordinary times, for Britain was at war.
Peggy responded by enlisting in the Women's Royal Naval Service, exchanging party dresses and a nurse's uniform for the navy blue of the "Wrens." Her duties during wartime were top secret, and for 40 years afterward, she maintained her oath of silence about them.
Peggy was assigned to Bletchley Park, home of the "Ultra" secret. Here, at a vast estate north of London, the Enigma machines, which were early computers, secretly decoded Nazi Germany's strategic messages. Mathematicians, code breakers and more than 1,000 Wrens acting as clerks lived and worked at Bletchley. Petty Officer Peggy BARNES was in charge of a group of these Wrens.
Not until their reunion in 1985 were the Wrens at last permitted to speak of their activities at the heart of the Allied war effort. Until then, not even Peg's husband knew how she had served.
Bletchley Park had attractions for a young Wren from the Midlands, including the fact that London was nearby. At a dance in London, Peggy met a Canadian, a flight lieutenant who had enlisted in the Royal Air Force because he was too young to join the Royal Canadian Air Force. In 1945, in the parish church of Sutton-in-Ashfield, Peggy BARNES of Nottinghamshire married Donald T. GRAY/GREY of Toronto, and her life changed forever.
As a British war bride in Toronto, Peggy soon put down Canadian roots, deepened by the arrivals of son Peter and daughter Wendy. Along with an active family life, Peggy developed her interest in community service. A cancer survivor from her early 30s, she devoted countless volunteer hours to the Canadian Cancer Society. Her contribution as volunteer led to her receiving an Ontario government award in recognition of her exceptional service.
Her hospitality was notable. A lively, gracious and generous hostess, Peg was also an excellent cook. She especially enjoyed spending time with young people, often viewing her role with them as mentor and coach.
Peggy had panache. She was always beautifully dressed and groomed, her suits and hats elegant and carefully chosen, her shoes her passion -- and she loved a party. She enjoyed the limelight, and belted out Hello Dolly, her signature tune, on many occasions. To her grandchildren, she was kind of cool, ahead of her time, an extreme grandma more likely to teach them how to mix a perfect highball than to serve milk and cookies.
Peggy maintained high standards, both for herself and others. She provided an example of service, stylishness and the importance of life's grace notes. She was fun, a vibrant presence, a memorable character, original in outlook and experience. We whose lives she touched will remember and miss her.
Donna is Peggy's niece.

George DENISON: A judge of character
George Taylor DENISON III presided over a Toronto court for 44 years, commanded troops, wrote books and lived large
By Adam MAYERS, Toronto Star
Although George Taylor DENISON III wasn't exactly a hanging judge, over the course of the 44 years that he presided over a Toronto police court, he could never be accused of letting the law stand in the way of justice.
He often ignored precedent unless it conformed to his point of view, preferred speedy judgment to a lengthy presentation of evidence, and relied as much on intuition as the balance of probability in determining a verdict.
More than once he made a decision that seemed contrary to the facts and he was not above shouting down the accused or his lawyer to make a point.
His behaviour on the bench made DENISON a character in the city, and so when he died on June 6, 1925, at the age of 86, it was an event of note. His court had become a tourist attraction and although his death was a sombre occasion, the extensive coverage including a full page in the Star -- reflected the nature of the life lived. Obituary writers celebrated him with the same vigour with which he dispensed law, acknowledging DENISON as an unconventional and colourful public figure who had no difficulty expressing whatever came to mind.
If the court system seems slow these days, lawyers and judges could take a leaf from DENISON's book. He claimed that in a good year he handled 20,000 cases, compared to an average 7,000 by a police court magistrate in Britain. While this included bail hearings and remands, as well as trials, based on 230 hearing days a year, it came to an astonishing average of 87 cases a day.
DENISON's great achievement on the bench was to end what he described as the "pernicious practice" whereby defendants and complainants visited the judge's chamber beforehand to "discuss" their cases, leading to bribes and sweet deals. He also refused perks given to magistrates of the day, including free passes by steamship and railway companies, claiming he couldn't be impartial if he took favours.
While today judges prefer the shadows, DENISON loved the limelight. He gave lectures, wrote books and commanded a militia regiment. He was a staunch defender of the British Empire and deeply suspicious of American motives.
As an alderman in St. Patrick's ward, he shocked Toronto's city council in April 1865 during the passage of a resolution expressing sympathy with Americans over the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. He was the only councillor to vote against it.
But DENISON was far more than a colourful character. He was part of a wealthy, well-educated clan who were part of the Canadian military and political elite, with roots that stretched back to the United Empire Loyalists. His great-grandfather came to Upper Canada with Lord Simcoe in the 1790s. His grandfather fought with Gen. Isaac Brock in the War of 1812.
His father, George Taylor DENISON II, built a baronial estate called Rusholme amid open fields on the western edge of Toronto, in what is now the College and Dovercourt area. George built his own estate, Heydon Villa, near his father's.
Today, Rusholme Park Cres., Rusholme Rd., Heydon Park Rd. and Dovercourt Rd. are all named after the family
George was one of nine children and enjoyed all the advantages of his father's wealth. He went to Upper Canada College and studied law at the University of Toronto, eventually going into practice with his brother Fred, who became an member of Parliament.
Another brother, John, was the first Canadian admiral in the British navy. Brother Septimus Junius was among the first graduates from Kingston's Royal Military College, fought in the Boer War and rose to the rank of general in the British army.
George's first calling was also the military, and in 1861, at just 22, he took command of the 1st Toronto Volunteer Cavalry, a militia regiment raised and supported by his family.
He later commanded the Governor General's bodyguard. He was a staunch supporter of the southern Confederacy during the American Civil War -- his uncle was a major in the Confederate secret service -- and let Confederate spies in Toronto use his home as a staging point.
In 1866, he commanded troops along the frontier in Niagara, guarding against the Fenian raids from New York state. (The Fenians were an Irish brotherhood who attacked forts, customs posts and other border points to pressure Britain into withdrawing from Ireland.)
In the 1870s, DENISON wrote a history of cavalry that won a contest underwritten by Tsar Nicholas I. He gladly travelled to St. Petersburg to claim the prize.
He once walked from Paris to Brussels with his brother to relive the passage of Napoleon's army to the Battle of Waterloo. DENISON and brother Fred marched to Manitoba and helped put down the Louis Riel rebellion in 1885.
The military tradition extended to his sons. One was killed during World War I at Vimy Ridge, one of three DENISONs who died in that war.
DENISON never smoked, rarely drank and loved to walk. He was well into his 70s when he gave up the daily 13-kilometre round trip from his house to the court at City Hall.
He died after a short illness and though his life was lived in the limelight, he was buried in a private cemetery among his ancestors at the end of a side street in the heart of what is modern-day Weston, near Lawrence Ave. and Weston Rd.
Fittingly, the cemetery, which overlooks the Humber River, is at the end of DENISON Rd., one of four streets in the city that bear the name of this extraordinary family.

Woman in car fatally shot
Struck in the head; boyfriend wounded in leg
Gunman fired through partly opened window
By Betsy POWELL and John DUNCANSON, Staff Reporters
Police are looking for a motive in a double shooting that left a 27-year-old woman dead and her boyfriend wounded in a car outside a west-end bar early yesterday.
After receiving a 911 call at 2: 13 a.m., officers located 32-year-old Michael DENNETT and his girlfriend, Dianna SANDEMAN, in a black, two-door BMW parked in front of the Europa Café and Sports Bar on Browns Line, just south of Horner Ave.
The couple, who had been together for 3½ years, had been inside the bar with five or six Friends celebrating Italy's victory over Germany in the World Cup semifinal, homicide Det. Sgt. Terry WARK said.
Police said a man approached the passenger side of the car and fired into the partially opened window, fatally wounding SANDEMAN and injuring DENNETT, who was in the driver's seat.
It appeared she was shot in the head, while he was struck in the leg. DENNETT is recovering in hospital. An autopsy is scheduled for this morning.
A handgun was recovered by police on the front lawn of a home on a nearby residential street.
The car was parked in the southbound curb lane about six metres from the Europa's front door. A bullet hole could be seen on the outside of the driver's door.
WARK said police had little to go on so far.
The handful of patrons in the bar and bar staff, who are not considered suspects, have all been interviewed and were co-operative, police said.
Investigators interviewed DENNETT, who couldn't provide a motive. After leaving the vehicle, he saw the gunman, whom he described as skinny and wearing a sweatshirt and jeans, police said.
The BMW was leased to SANDEMAN and DENNETT, who lived together in a condominium.
Earlier this year, DENNETT and SANDEMAN were charged with assault causing bodily harm after two people were attacked with a hammer inside a Walmer Rd. apartment on March 18.
Court records show that DENNETT pleaded guilty and was convicted of the reduced charge of assault in April. He was given a 10-day jail sentence, which he served on weekends. He was also put on probation for 18 months and was banned from owning weapons for 10 years.
SANDEMAN's assault charge was withdrawn.
WARK said he was "aware of the charge" but that there was nothing yet to suggest the two incidents were connected.
Yesterday afternoon inside the small sports bar, the big-screen television was tuned to a local news channel broadcasting details of the shooting.
A woman standing behind the bar said she didn't know anything about the incident.
The Europa is beside a Japanese and Korean food restaurant, a video rental outlet and a massage parlour. The businesses back onto a quiet residential area.
A witness who did not want to be identified said he saw the male victim recline the passenger seat so that the mortally wounded woman could lie back.
He also told her that help was on the way, the man said.

In loving memory of our daughter and sister Diana who passed away 7 years ago, January 14th, 1999. Have you ever lost a daughter, Who meant the world to you, And loved so very much, And miss her like we do? Have you ever had a heartache Or felt the awful pain, Or shed those bitter tears, That drop like falling rain? Have you ever had that feeling, I pray you never do, For when you lose a precious daughter, You've also lost part of you. Lovingly remembered by Mom, Dad, Deborah, Annette and Granny.

EBBELS, William D. " Bill"
Died peacefully, surrounded by family, on April 13, 2006 in Regina, Saskatchewan at the Wascana Rehabilitation Centre, where he was a long time resident. Bill was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on July 20, 1922, son of Harold Amory EBBELS, K.C. and Innis Colton EBBELS. He graduated from City Park Collegiate prior to attending the University of Saskatchewan. His studies were then interrupted by the war. He enlisted in the Royal Canadian Navy in 1942 and served as a Gunnary and Navigation Officer, the latter on the minesweeper H.M.C.S. Canso, the lone Canadian ship with a British flotilla in the Normandy Invasion. During his leave to Canada after D-Day, he married Irma Ruth HUTCHINSON/HUTCHISON on September 16, 1943 in Montreal. He returned to Europe and was subsequently discharged in 1946. Bill's completion of his Bachelor of Commerce at U of S in April 1947 competed with the birth of their first child, Harold DENNIS. After graduation Bill joined the Regina investment firm of Houston and Willoughby where he spent his entire career, becoming the Executive Vice President and General Secretary where he was also involved in the Investment Dealers Association of Canada. The firm went through various mergers eventually ending up as part of RBC Dominion Securities. Bill retired in 1988. Bill was engaged in the community affairs and business of Regina all his life. He was a director of numerous community organizations and was a long-standing member of the Regina Kinsmen club, serving as President in 1967. He served on the Board of the Regina Exhibition, including a term as President. Bill was on the Senate of the University of Saskatchewan and active in the alumni association. As the first Chairman of the Regina Leader-Post Carrier Foundation, he encouraged carriers to go on to higher education. He was on the Board of the Canadian Scholarship Trust Fund. Throughout his life Bill was an avid and accomplished athlete. He was on the U of S Varsity basketball, hockey, lacrosse and tennis teams, with tennis the focal point and love of his sporting life. Starting in 1948 he was an eight-time Saskatchewan Open Singles champion and runner-up seven times. At age 45 he won his last title in 1967, also winning the veterans singles championship - the only person to win both in the same year. A great thrill was representing Saskatchewan in the first Canada Summer Games in Halifax in 1967, where he was the oldest competitor at 49. As a renowned builder of the game in Saskatchewan he undertook countless administrative and instructional roles including President of both the Regina Tennis Club and the S.L.T.A., for several terms each. Bill was inducted into the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame in 1976. Bill cherished his family time during the many summers at Lumsden Beach, at the condo in Manzanillo, Mexico, on the countless camping trips stuffed into the family station wagon, and on the tennis courts with his kids or crisscrossing Western Canada to tennis tournaments -- both his and the kids. Bill had a wonderful sense of humour and was always quick with a laugh. He loved singing, doing the ol'soft shoe, and was full of life and vigor in everything he did. Besides Ruth, his remarkable wife of 62 years, Bill is survived by his children: Hal (Donna and Tannis, Rob) of Calgary, Jim (Bonnie and Alecia) of Calgary, Jack (Pat and Calen) of Victoria, Bill (Sheila and Kelly, Lendon, Will) of New Jersey, Virginia (Tim COSBEY and David) of Gabriola Island and Andrea (Callum HILL) of Vancouver. Bill was predeceased by his brother Jack (Lois and Tim, Susan) of Calgary. Ruth wishes to express her heartfelt gratitude to the staff of the Wascana Rehabilitation Centre where Bill had been a resident for the last thirteen years. Bill has been blessed with the finest Friends possible, all of who have provided extraordinary support through these last difficult years. Funeral services will be held at Lakeview United Church, 3200 McCallum Ave., Regina, 306-586-7844, on Monday, April 17, 2006, at 2: 00 p.m. with reception to follow at the church. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations to the Wascana Rehabilitation Centre, Nursing Unit 3-5, 2180 23rd Avenue, Regina, Saskatchewan S4S 0A5 or The Lakeshore Tennis Club, P.O. Box 293, Regina, Saskatchewan, S4P 3A1. An on-line book of condolence may be signed at www.speersfuneralchapel.com

This Was Johnathon
In November 2003, Johnathon was beaten, thrown down the basement stairs in his Toronto home and stabbed 71 times -- his throat slashed. Yesterday, his mother sobbed as her only remaining child was handed a life sentence for the murder. Another teen, nicknamed Vampire Boy, was also sentenced as an adult for manslaughter
By Timothy APPLEBY, Armina LIGAYA and Hayley MICK, Page A12
Toronto -- For close to three years he was the 12-year-old Toronto boy with no face and only one name, cut and stabbed so ferociously that he drowned in his own blood.
He was simply "Johnathan," his identity shielded because one of the three teenagers accused of slaughtering him was his older brother, 16 at the time. Identifying the brother would have contravened provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act and so "Johnathan," much to the chagrin of his mother, was robbed not just of his life, but also of his identity.
But as sentence was passed yesterday on two of the three accused (the third was acquitted of all charges in February), a Superior Court judge ruled that the horrendous circumstances demanded the killers be dealt with as adults. And so, finally, the veil was lifted and Johnathon Robert MADDEN of Dawes Road, in Toronto's east Danforth area, can be named and seen, as his mother had asked the court.
Likewise unveiled are the two killers, Kevin MADDEN, a hulking, stone-faced figure, now almost 20, and his friend, Timothy FERRIMAN, nicknamed Vampire Boy for his professed fondness for sipping blood.
"The facts are horrific," Mr. Justice David McCOMBS concluded, outlining what he described as "a hideous, senseless crime."
Mr. MADDEN was found guilty of first-degree murder in February and yesterday was sentenced to life imprisonment for killing his little brother in the family home, cutting and slicing his face and neck 71 times with a butcher knife, severing both his voice box and his carotid artery.
Mr. MADDEN was also convicted of trying to murder his stepfather, Ralston CHAMPAGNIE, who was attacked with a knife and a baseball bat when he returned home that same afternoon in November of 2003. For that, he received a concurrent 10-year prison term, less three years spent in pretrial custody.
Two years of his life sentence will be served in a youth facility and the balance in a federal penitentiary, Judge McCOMBS ruled. Behind bars since the day after Johnathon was slain, he will be eligible to apply for parole in just over seven years.
Like all lifers, Mr. MADDEN will be under supervision for the rest of his days, if, or when, he goes free. He is not necessarily beyond all hope, the judge said.
In keeping with his icy demeanour throughout the trial, Mr. MADDEN showed not a shred of emotion yesterday. Mr. FERRIMAN, now 18 and convicted of manslaughter for his role in Johnathon's death, was slightly more animated, glancing around at the packed courtroom where his father, Timothy, sat.
Unlike Mr. MADDEN, Mr. FERRIMAN addressed the court during the sentencing hearing, apologizing for what he had done. The judge said yesterday he found the remorse of the "deeply disturbed" young man to be credible.
Mr. FERRIMAN did not stab the boy but he handed Mr. MADDEN the murder weapon and he helped move Johnathon's body.
On top of time served, Mr. FERRIMAN must spend two years less a day in the youth prison system -- in which he is said to have made significant rehabilitative progress -- followed by three years probation.
The judge's comments during the trial were laced with sympathy for the MADDEN family's ordeal of having one son murder another.
But for both prosecution and defence, the case was unusually taxing.
The first trial was aborted midway through jury deliberations after postings on a vampire-related Internet site -- the same one patronized by Montreal's Dawson College killer -- cast doubt on the veracity of a teenaged girl who was the Crown's key witness.
Fourteen years old at the time, the girl had tape-recorded a telephone call in which the two killers had bragged of plans to wipe out Mr. MADDEN's family, beginning with Johnathon. Less than an hour later, with the house vandalized and smashed up, Johnathon's 45-kilogram (100-pound) body was stuffed in a basement crawl space as the three accused awaited Mr. CHAMPAGNIE's return.
All were arrested within 24 hours.
Mr. MADDEN never disputed killing his brother, who "adored" him, their mother, Joanne CHAMPAGNIE, said in a heart-wrenching victim-impact statement.
Missing throughout the trial, however, was any persuasive insight into how Mr. MADDEN's rage boiled to such a peak that he wanted to annihilate his family.
After the verdicts, emotions were mixed.
Lead prosecutor Hank GOODY, who argued strenuously for adult sentences, declined comment.
But Mr. MADDEN's lawyer, Robert NUTTALL, who sought to have his client sentenced as a youth, said he would appeal the ruling.
"I'm disappointed for Kevin, everybody agrees that Kevin is a very troubled fellow," he said. "Kevin desperately needs treatment. And unfortunately, he's not going to get it."
He described Mr. MADDEN as a "deeply disturbed young man" -- not the psychopath perceived by Doctor Ian SWAYZE, a psychiatrist who examined him at length -- who would benefit from treatment within the youth justice system. "If he doesn't get treatment, he will remain a high risk to reoffend. The issue is, where's he going to get the treatment? It sounds like the [penitentiary] is not the place to get it."
John DENNIS, Mr. FERRIMAN's lawyer, called the past three years "a roller coaster ride" and said he, too, would appeal the decision to sentence the young men as adults.
Ms. CHAMPAGNIE said nothing.
Dressed in a ribbed beige sweater and dark pants and flanked by supporters, she started dabbing at her eyes as she took her seat in the first row, the same place she occupied for each day of the sentencing hearing, listening attentively to Judge McCOMBS.
Each time he alluded to the brutal murder, tears flowed, and when he described how Mr. FERRIMAN helped move the younger boy's body, she held her eyes tightly shut.
Talk of Mr. MADDEN's thoughts elicited a different reaction.
"[Kevin] has repeatedly stated that he has never loved anyone, and has never felt love from anyone," the judge said.
Ms. CHAMPAGNIE looked down and shook her head.
And when the judge told the court that Mr. MADDEN blames his mother for not protecting him, she again shook her head.
She didn't react when Mr. MADDEN's sentence was announced.
But she burst into tears when Judge McCOMBS offered his condolences to her family.
She wanted Johnathon's identity revealed, she told the trial earlier, because she wanted him to be remembered -- to have a face.
When she realized yesterday the publication ban could be lifted, she exhaled a sigh of relief.
Homicide squad Detective Sergeant Terry WARK, who became close to the family throughout their ordeal, said later that Ms. CHAMPAGNIE was content with the outcome and still wants to be in Mr. MADDEN's life.
"But she realizes he needs help," Det. Sgt. WARK said. "She's happy that he'll be in a youth facility for the next two years, because he has been getting a lot of help in there."
The judge's ruling was fair, he said. "He was very compassionate to the family, but I think his sentence today was very helpful to the two boys, and it also gets across the message of deterrence."
Dr. SWAYZE also voiced approval.
Mr. MADDEN, he said, is "salvageable to the extent that he's relatively young, and he hasn't had a lifetime of entrenched antisocial attitudes."
Johnathon and Kevin's biological father, also named Kevin MADDEN and estranged from Ms. CHAMPAGNIE since 1993, had no comment on the ruling.
After the sentencing, the brothers' aunt, Wendy EBERHARDT, read a statement on behalf of her family.
"We are relieved to see an end to the trial," she said. "We are pleased that Kevin and Tim are going to get help with their problems. We're relieved to have Johnathon's full name released, so that we can now properly memorialize him."
'BF's 4-ever'
He'd grown up building forts, hurling mud pies with his Friends and playing Little League.
Now he was 12, and larger horizons beckoned.
His voice was beginning to break, he'd started junior high and girls were on his mind.
His best friend's grandmother recalled the fair, blue-eyed boy plunking down at her kitchen table on a November day, three years ago, and musing about a crush. Where should he take her for dinner? he wondered.
None of it would come to pass.
A few weeks later, Johnathon MADDEN was ambushed and stabbed to death by his older brother Kevin, becoming Toronto's 59th homicide victim of 2003.
Until yesterday, he could not be identified, because his name would reveal those of his accused killers.
"He just had a sweetness about him," said the grandmother of his best friend, Nathan. "We miss him."
Johnathon Robert MADDEN was born in Toronto on May 11, 1991, the second son of Joanne and Kevin MADDEN.
The pair separated when Kevin was 7 and Johnathon 3. Their mother remarried soon after the divorce.
The court heard that while a teenaged Kevin had problems in class, at home and with the law, Johnathon led a happy childhood.
"Johnathon was a compassionate boy. He was worried about what was going on in his family. And loved his brother," said the woman, who did not want to be identified.
Johnathon and Nathan lived blocks apart in North York and, for six years, they were inseparable. They built forts, attended Raptors games with Johnathon's family and revelled in nicki-nicki-nine-door "missions."
One weekend, they dotted Nathan's grandmother's yard with holes and had mud fights.
The summer they were 9, they had a marathon number of sleepovers that lasted three weeks.
On the last day of his life, Johnathon walked Nathan home after a snowball fight.
Hours later, the boy was slashed to death by his brother in the basement of his family home.
Nathan, 10 at the time of the killing, testified at two trials held for his friend's accused killers. The first ended in a mistrial.
Johnathon's mother, now Ms. CHAMPAGNIE, wants her son to be remembered, and created a memorial website (http://www.johnathon-madden.memory-of.com). In it, Johnathon is remembered as the boy with the big smile who loved tacos, saltfish and making people laugh.
His aunt, Margo ANDERSON, wrote: "To my nephew, may you enjoy skateboarding with the angels."
A classmate wrote: "You always were the funny one in the class."
And Nathan STEVENSON, Johnathon's co-conspirator, mud-fight rival and sleepover buddy, wrote that he misses his best friend, signing it "BF's 4-ever."
Hayley Mick
'You just don't understand'
During the three years that homicide investigator Detective Sergeant Terry WARK helped shape the prosecution case against Kevin MADDEN, the accused responded to his many questions just once.
"I said to him, 'Kevin, this was your brother. How could you do this?' " the policeman recalled.
"And he said, 'You don't understand. It built up. You just don't understand.' That's the only thing he ever said to me, he never said another word."
Blond, tall and broad shouldered -- he weighed about 230 pounds when he killed his young brother -- Mr. MADDEN appeared to listen carefully during his two murder trials, occasionally peering around the room with his cold, flat eyes.
But he never testified and only once did he display any emotion.
That was when his mother, Joanne CHAMPAGNIE, described her pain and her love for both of her sons.
Her words left Mr. MADDEN sobbing quietly, rocking in his chair in the prisoners' box.
To the end, the teenaged killer was an enigma.
Mr. MADDEN's history -- moving from house to house after his parents' marriage failed, habitual truancy at 10 different schools, alcohol abuse that started at the age of 12, sharing his home with a stepfather he hated -- offered some grim early warning signs.
When he killed his 12-year-old brother, he was already on probation over threats he had made to schoolmates
He also threatened to blow up one school. He was suspended at least six times from the last high school he attended.
Some observers -- including the judge who sentenced him to life imprisonment yesterday -- nonetheless see a glimmer of hope, because of his youth.
So does his biological father.
"He's got ambition now," Kevin MADDEN Sr. told the court after visiting his son in custody. "He wants to get good grades, wants to be productive, he seems like a totally different person."
Prosecutor Hank GOODY saw things entirely differently.
"Mr. MADDEN is now the same person psychologically as he was November 23, 2003," he told the court. "And is likely to remain the same psychologically for the foreseeable future."
And forensic psychiatrist Doctor Ian SWAYZE painted a picture that was alarming.
"He really is sort of a smouldering volcano, with steam coming out of the vents," he testified.
"These explosions of anger are not out of character, not aberrant. There's a cascade towards a terrible event… a path towards disaster."

BURK/BURKE, James (né KAPHALAKOS) (September 16, 1917-October 15, Writer - Editor - Novelist Longest-living Canadian Paraplegic
James BURK/BURKE would be the last to want his disability given any billing. Yet in the view of his considerable achievements it enhances his successful challenge of life. It is a mark of distinction. He was born in Toronto the son of Peter KAPHALAKOS (Peloponnesus, Greece) and Florence COCHRANE, Toronto. If heritage counts, he exhibited the strength and stoicism of a Spartan combined with the humour of the Irish. All his youth he excelled in academic standing, he was a voracious reader, lover of classic music, and a regular at the 'Y' (1939 Bronze Medal in the Jr. Ontario Championships). Later he took flying instructions out of the Toronto Island Airport. He was about to get his private license, when he was a passenger in an auto accident in 1940, before seat belts were in use. Rehabilitation or social programs for civilian paraplegics were nonexistent. He spent 7 years in hospitals permanently confined to a wheelchair. In an interview much later he said simply: 'I have a rather undistinguished past.' On release he pursued a career in freelance writing, book reviewing and editing for Canadian magazines, newspapers and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. He wrote everything from short stories to commercial copy. He edited the journal of the Canadian Paraplegic Association for some 8 years. In 1951 he married actress Laddie DENNIS. They honeymooned in Mexico. Throughout their marriage they took numerous car journeys sharing the driving in the U.S. and Canada. They moved to Scarborough in 1955 and rescued an unfinished renovation of a building on the historic site of the Falcon Inn. Doing the contracting himself, BURK/BURKE did such a good job it was written up by most of the Toronto papers. The 11-room house sits in a woods with a spring fed stream and terraced lawns. It has remained their home to this day. He published his first novel "Flee Seven Ways" in Great Britain (by Hutchinson with distribution in Canada), in the U.S. (Pantheon) and in a German translation (Rauch). It received high praise from top publications: The Times Literary Supplement, The Irish Times, Punch magazine, New Yorker magazine, Sunday New York Herald Tribune, etc. Robert Moses, President of The New York World's Fair 1964-65 wrote of his admiration, and long time friend Marshall McLuhan predicted 'It is a picaresque scenario that will be snapped up by an alert movie enterprise.' And so it was that the Burkes flew to London in 1963 where he wrote the movie script. Given the vagaries of filmdom it did not come to fruition. However, an unexpected contract with the British Broadcasting Corporation resulted in his writing a radio script of the classic "Diary Of A Madman" by Gogol. It was given repeated airings with film actor Kenneth Williams. In 1969 his second novel was published in Britain "The Firefly Hunt" (Collins). Again it was embraced by reviewers, especially in the British press, including a long one in The Times Literary Supplement. 'A sparkling Romancandle of a fantasy' - Argosy United Kingdom called it. He started a third novel but serious health problems diminished the long term energy needed for the project. In his last days he was cheered to hear that his novels are still selling on the Internet. He died in a Toronto hospital with his wife of 55-years holding his hand, following a ferocious 5-week battle. According to his wishes he was buried in The Scarborough Historical Society's Bethel Pioneer Cemetery in a private family ceremony on October 24. There will be a tree planting in the Spring to honour his remarkable life. He is survived by brothers Paul and Peter, a nephew Christopher, a niece Paula BASTONE and sisters-in-law Mary KAYE of Montreal and Mae KAPHALAKOS of Toronto. He was predeceased by his brothers Jack (3-weeks before at 93 years) of Montreal and George KAPHALAKOS (1988) of Toronto. 'Now Jim, you can really fly. May angels ride on your wings.' - Bill McVean

Toronto -- James BURK/BURKE was 22 and only weeks from getting a pilot's licence when an accident left him paralyzed. The year was 1940 and Toronto's health system was ill equipped to deal with civilian paraplegics. Hospital authorities basically told him to "pray and die," he said later.
He spent long years in institutions before the availability of the personal collapsible wheelchair -- combined with his own willpower -- helped him start a new life on the outside. He worked as a freelance writer and editor, married radio and stage personality Laddie DENNIS, and authored two comic novels in the 1960s. He was to spend more than six decades in a wheelchair and was one of Canada's longest-surviving paraplegics.
"He never allowed himself to be shackled by remorse," says William GEISLER, one of the doctors who helped with his rehabilitation. "He didn't ruminate on what had been. He knew those emotions would sap him of the energy he required." Friends say he avoided talking about his handicap, had a strong sense of humour and was always willing to help others.
For a number of years, Mr. BURK/BURKE edited the Caliper, the journal of the Canadian Paraplegic Association. He also wrote Return to Action, a history of treatment programs for spinal-cord patients. But he never mentioned disabilities in his other writings, which included a physical fitness course, short stories, book reviews for The Globe and Mail and two novels.
Flee Seven Ways (1964) is the rollicking tale of a corrupt businessman. It was published in Britain, the U.S. and Germany to favourable reviews. "A very funny first novel," wrote The New York Times. The paper's Literary Supplement noted: "His novel is a complex construction, bravely undertaken and creditably carried out."
In The Firefly Hunt (1969), mischief and mayhem bedevil the hero after he inherits a castle from an eccentric uncle. Argosy magazine called it "a sparkling Roman-candle of a fantasy." Mr. BURK/BURKE drafted a third novel, but health problems halted completion.
Christened James KAPHALAKOS, he changed his last name to BURK/BURKE as a young man. He was the second of five sons of Panogiotis (Peter) KAPHALAKOS, a Greek immigrant who operated a Toronto coffee business, and his wife, Florence (née COCHRANE.) Young James excelled at school and in athletics but, because of his father's death in 1930, he abandoned his studies. To support his family, he graduated from high school and then went looking for whatever work he could find.
An avid weightlifter with a striking physique, he earned some income as a live model at the Ontario College of Art. But his main job in 1940 was on the bull gang at a paper mill. He was also taking flying lessons at the Toronto Island airport, but only when he had some extra money. That all changed when the car in which he was a passenger was involved in an accident. The impact broke his back and left him paralyzed from the mid-back down.
At the time, life expectancy for paraplegics was considered low. As a result, Mr. BURK/BURKE was given little more than food, a bed to lie in and drugs to fight off infection. In all, he spent seven years at a succession of Toronto hospitals. Later, he said he only talked about those missing years "to counter the canard" that he had spent them in jail.
He gave details of his dreary hospital years in lengthy interviews conducted in the early 1990s by Mary TREMBLAY, an associate professor of health sciences at McMaster University. She used his experiences in a series of academic papers on the evolution of Canada's treatment of spinal-cord injuries.
At Saint Michael's Hospital, nuns asked Mr. BURK/BURKE to accept his fate and make peace with God. "I somehow didn't feel like taking on the chore of dying at that moment," he told Ms. TREMBLAY. The Queen Elizabeth Hospital was "very restrictive" with few activities, but at Runnymede Hospital he found the staff to be more sympathetic. Somehow, he obtained a typewriter and took up writing. One of his first successes as a freelancer was a correspondence course on fitness that he sold through magazine ads.
His life changed dramatically in 1946 when he was visited by Dr. Al JOUSSE and John COUNSELL, a paraplegic veteran who had been injured at Dieppe. Along with neurosurgeon Doctor Harry BOTTERELL, they had helped set up Lyndhurst Lodge in Toronto as a centre for spinal-injury rehabilitation programs for veterans of the Second World War. As a deserving civilian, Mr. BURK/BURKE was squeezed into the program. He began travelling to Lyndhurst for physiotherapy twice a week. More importantly, he was given one of the Everest and Jennings folding, self-propelled wheelchairs that had provided freedom and hope to paraplegic veterans.
In 1948, he moved to the Young Men's Christian Association in downtown Toronto where he pursued his writing career. He wrote short stories and book reviews, and also worked as a copy editor. It was at the Young Men's Christian Association coffee bar that he met Laddie DENNIS, then a stage actress and radio announcer. She later appeared regularly on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television and became a travel writer. One friend called their romance "the love story of the century." Ms. DENNIS says she "made the first move" and was also the one who proposed. They were married in 1951 and spent their honeymoon in Mexico.
In 1955, they purchased a former five-car garage that once belonged to the historic Falcon Inn in Scarborough. The partly finished structure was considered a white elephant, but the couple turned it into a comfortable home where they often entertained 40 guests at a time.
In 1963, Mr. BURK/BURKE was invited to England to turn his first novel into a screenplay. The project fell through, but along the way he picked up an assignment to write the script for a British Broadcasting Corporation Radio play based on Nikolai Gogol's Diary of a Madman. It starred comedian Kenneth Williams.
Despite his handicap, Mr. BURK/BURKE drove a car, raked lawns, got in and out of a rowboat and even chopped wood.
Mary TREMBLAY started one interview saying she wanted to talk about Mr. BURK/BURKE's ideas about disability. His reply summed up his attitude: "I'm against it."
James BURK/BURKE was born in Toronto on September 16, 1917. He died in Toronto on October 15, 2006, of complications of paraplegia. He was 89. He leaves his wife, Laddie DENNIS, and brothers Paul and Peter KAPHALAKOS.
