Taps for Alfred
A beloved old soldier dies, leaving mysteries about his past unsolved, Peter CHENEY writes
By Peter CHENEY, Page M3
To some, Alfred FINLEY was a tragic icon of the Second World War, a man who had risked his life for his country only to end his days in grinding poverty, living in a Toronto garage with no running water.
Central Casting could not have found a more poignantly photogenic symbol of war than Mr. FINLEY, with his dignified face and rheumy blue eyes -- when Remembrance Day rolled around, he was photographed and filmed again and again in his Black Watch uniform, tears running down his cheeks as he recalled past battles and fallen Friends.
But to others, he was a fraud, with a military history that didn't add up and a uniform that looked like it had been pieced together as a costume by a man who wanted the limelight.
After The Globe and Mail featured him in a story two years ago, recounting an amazing military history including battles at Anzio and Tobruk and wading ashore on D-Day, veterans suggested that Mr. FINLEY was not all that he claimed to be -- the Black Watch regiment, they pointed out, didn't participate in many of the battles that Mr. FINLEY recounted. Others said his medals and insignia were not consistent. A Black Watch Association member said he could not have done all the things he said he did -- or seemed to believe that he had.
But confronted by the discrepancies, Mr. FINLEY stood by his version: "That's how I remember it," he said.
This week, the final chapter in Mr. FINLEY's strangely compelling story played out in a Brampton cemetery when he was lowered into the earth in a simple wooden casket, dressed in his disputed uniform and surrounded by people who loved him, whether his story was real or invented -- or a combination of both.
"He wasn't just a soldier to me," said Barbara HALE- FRENSCH, a teacher who befriended Mr. FINLEY more than a decade ago and considered him the "adopted grandfather" to her children. "He was a wonderful old man with a kind heart who gave away everything he had to others."
By the time of his death at the age of 86, due to complications from cancer, Mr. FINLEY had become a local character in Toronto's High Park neighbourhood, where he spent his days drinking coffee in the local McDonald's, talking to residents and cruising in his electric scooter. (He lost one of his legs due to infection after the war.)
As the 2004 Globe story recounted, he lived in abject poverty, paying $600 of his $1,000 veteran's pension to landlord Maryann SCHENBRI, who rented him space in her garage.
He was a fixture at veterans' events, rigging himself up in his Black Watch uniform and medals for the Canadian National Exhibition Warriors' Day Parade every August, and for Remembrance Day ceremonies at Old City Hall in November. He appeared in newspapers and television newscasts more than half a dozen times. "An Old Vet Remembers," one headline read.
In 1996, a photograph of Mr. FINLEY was nominated for a National Newspaper Award. His face still appears on a National Defence website.
Mr. FINLEY's passing has not made his record available -- Department of National Defence spokesmen said military records remain sealed for 20 years after death, although military officials have confirmed that an Alfred FINLEY served overseas during the Second World War.
But those who knew him best say that questions about his record should not define him.
"People knew that at least part of the story was made up," says Sherry LOW/LOWE/LOUGH- BERNIE, a High Park Pilates instructor who saw Mr. FINLEY almost every day since 2004. "People kept saying that he wasn't for real. I said, Who cares? He volunteered for his country, and he wasn't hurting anyone. It really isn't about the details of his military record. It's about an old soldier who lived in a garage without running water. Nobody should have to live the way he did."
Ms. HALE- FRENSCH, who delivered the eulogy at Mr. FINLEY's funeral, wept as she recalled how the old soldier would come to Runnymede School every morning to listen to her band rehearse, and run errands for her on his scooter. "What's important is that he loved people, and that people loved him," she said. "It's not about the details of what he really did."
Even so, many noticed that Mr. FINLEY's war stories grew and shifted over the years, often accumulating pathos and detail. He told one friend about going ashore at Normandy, but later said that he had been in Berlin on the same date. He told Ms. HALE- FRENSCH about a dramatic rescue in North Africa, where he pulled five British soldiers out of a tank that had been hit by German fire just moments before it exploded. Soon after, he told her, he had been summoned by Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery, who had awarded him a medal.
Gail CATNEY, an executive assistant who met Mr. FINLEY on the streets of High Park in the early 1990s, said she had been struck by his generosity. Though he was poor, he refused handouts, and often brought gifts for her, she said, recalling the time he brought her a Delft vase. "My heart went out to him," she said. "He was alone, and he had nothing."
Ms. CATNEY was one of a handful of mourners who attended Mr. FINLEY's burial this week. He never married, and had no close family in Toronto. His service was paid for by the Last Post fund, which is funded by Veterans Affairs and private donations.
Mr. FINLEY was dressed in his Black Watch uniform and cap, and a piper played Amazing Grace as his flag-draped casket was lifted by the pallbearers. The military was represented by Master Corporal Victoria LOGAN- WHITE/WHYTE, a young cadet with the 75th Toronto Scottish Regiment who had often accompanied Mr. FINLEY to veterans' events. "I knew him my whole life," she said.
Ms. CATNEY cried as she placed a red plastic poppy on Mr. FINLEY's casket before it was lowered into the grave. "Goodbye, Alfred," she said. "We love you."
Another friend of Mr. FINLEY's listened to the eulogy, then noted sadly that his possessions were sitting out on the street less than 24 hours after his death. "His mattress was at the curb, and everything he owned was in five garbage bags," she said.
Ms. SCHENBRI, his landlady, wouldn't talk about her former tenant this week, but once said that she saw nothing wrong with his living arrangements, despite the lack of plumbing and the fact that he had no privacy, since she walked through his room to get to her car.
"Please," she said. "He's like my father."
Ms. SCHENBRI did not attend Mr. FINLEY's funeral this week.

FREUNDLICH, Andor " Andrei"
Devoted family man, tailor, soccer player/referee, opera lover and singer, joker, friend
Born September 22, 1916, Cluj, Romania
Died April 27, 2006
Andor was born in Cluj, Romania; he was the third of four children He lost his father at age 13.
Being the eldest son he had to leave High School early to help support his ailing mother and siblings as an apprentice tailor. He was immensely dedicated to his vocation, working very hard and developing outstanding skills. As money was very tight he used Sundays (his only day off) to personally deliver the new garments to clients, criss-crossing on foot this large and hilly city for small tips.
His hard work paid off, and over the years he became recognized and was sought out as one of the best 3 tailors of Romania, a country of more than 20 million people. Andor elevated the level of his skills to an actual art. His clientele included the most famous and celebrated personalities of Cluj, the region and indeed the country.
Belonging to an observant, religious Jewish family, Andor received additional religious education in which he excelled.
Unfortunately as a young man he survived another devastating blow, when at age 22 he lost his dear mother to a massive stroke.
With the Nazis in firm control the late 1930s and early 1940s were very troubled times in Europe especially for people of the Jewish faith. Andor and 300 other Jewish men from Cluj were deported to a forced labour camp in Southern Poland. They were assigned to clear mine fields. Of these, only Andor and 3 others survived the grizzly task. The four men were then sent to Nazi death camps, Dachau, Auschwitz, Feldaffing. Here Andor worked at a construction site, carrying back breaking sacks of cement. He suffered many injuries.
His two older sisters and their entire families perished. Only he and his younger brother survived. At the time of liberation, Andor at 6'1" weighed a mere 83 pounds!
Ironically, right after liberation and having survived all the perils and extreme difficulties of forced labour camps and Nazi concentration camps, Andor almost died of typhoid fever. That brush with death changed his life forever.
As a patient in one of the many improvised hospitals, Andor met the woman who would later became the love of his life - Elza WEIST (a fellow Holocaust survivor) who was volunteering as a nurse to the frail survivors of the death camps.
Andor recovered eventually. He fell in love with Elza; they returned together to Romania and married on January 8, 1946.
Andor was a tall, very handsome, distinguished and charming man, with white hair, twinkling blue eyes, and a broad smile. Elza was also very beautiful. They formed a stunningly wonderful couple, a combination of beauty and grace, who prided themselves on their strengths of character, love, values and on being always neat and well dressed. Together they raised two children, Aneta and George.
Andor was a keen sports enthusiast He particularly loved soccer and became a reliable defender in one of the city's top clubs and later a trusted and respected league referee. Andor loved the outdoors. Despite his very heavy workload and several hobbies, he found the occasional sunny Sundays, to share his passion with his family through fun filled hiking trips.
Andor loved music very much, especially classical music. However, opera was by far his first and greatest love. He loved opera so much that before the children were born he saved money and enrolled in formal voice training. He soon became a walking opera encyclopedia and instil led into all family members the love of classical music.
Although he worked very long hours spending quality time with his children was a priority to Andor, so he would bring material home and spend some evenings with his family as he worked. His young children Aneta and George were mesmerized as Andor knew how to work and entertain them by presenting the stories of various operas. He would also sing renowned opera arias. The young children soon had their personal choices that they would request during those special family times, the excerpts from "Rigoletto" (or "Yigoletto" as the kids unable to properly pronounce the "R" would call it) and "La Traviata" being the big favourites. In addition to these enjoyable informal musical presentations, the children's opera education was enhanced when Andor (and Elza) ensured that they attended live opera performances (at the city's 2 opera houses) from the tender age of 2.
Because of his exceptional reputation, Andor's clients often had to wait much longer to see him than to see the leading physicians of Cluj's University Hospitals. Among his most celebrated clientele, Andor's outstanding skills and trained eye attracted expectant mothers in need of properly fitted wardrobes. Before the ultrasound was ever invented Andor could accurately predict (before the obstetricians) twin pregnancies just by the refitting of a garment. Much to the amazement of the city's leading obstetricians, Andor was always right!
Andor was a wonderful role model; hard working, humble, an example of honesty and integrity. A display of anger was practically unheard of Andor and he was never heard using foul language.
Andor had a tremendous sense of humour that delighted all who knew him. He shared his merriment with family, Friends and clients. On one occasion a well known and respected lawyer brought material and requested that a three piece suit be made. Unfortunately, it soon became evident that he had purchased less material than necessary. He became very worried. "What now?" (While far from an ideal situation, the highly skilled and experienced Andor knew that he could make the suit). "Not to worry" said Andor without blinking an eye. He continued to the delight of the other clients if worse comes to worse I will still make you the three piece suit, but you will wear it with short pants!"
Andor was renowned for his extremely sweet tooth. Elza would take pride in preparing wonderful meals and desserts. When she asked him how the dessert was, he would often reply "I don't know!" When she would ask "Why don't you know?" he would smile and say that the piece was so small it was hard to decide. He would need another piece in order to give a fair evaluation.
Perhaps because of his early brush with horrifying brutality and death, Andor loved life like few others and cherished every single day He adored his Elza, his two children and his only grandchild Emanuel. He was extremely proud that his children were well educated and respected citizens of Canada - Aneta as a piano teacher and real estate agent in Ottawa and son George as a physician (emeritus) serving in Northern Ontario, active jazz musician and longtime appreciated member of the "Timmins Symphony Orchestra".
Andor selflessly dedicated his life, his work, and his love to his family
In January 2006 Andor and Elza celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary!
We are quickly overwhelmed when we think of the terrible adversities Andor had to face and are awed by all the wonderful things he eventually accomplished. Andor's fight with atrocities was not marked by bitterness and depression but by determination, faith and unusual passion for life. The indescribable atrocities Andor was subjected to and survived caught the attention of numerous historians, teachers and journalists. He was approached (as was Elza) by Steven Spielberg ("So generations never forget what so few lived to tell") and provided extensive interviews for the Holocaust documentary "Shoah" ("The Catastrophe"). Quite amazingly, despite the many devastating blows and obstacles, he still managed to somehow maintain an optimistic outlook.
He was a great and very loyal friend who has touched many lives.
Although retired for many years, he was by no means forgotten. When he passed away (of pneumonia) a huge crowd attended his funeral. The deeply moving eulogy was presented by the two most renowned physicians of the city. An astonishing tribute to his character, status, love, his many kindnesses and to the life he has lived.
Two weeks after Andor's passing, the Timmins Symphony Orchestra performed W.A. Mozart's "Requiem". Deeply saddened by the loss of Andor, son George performed with the orchestra. In tribute to the memory of his dearly loved father. In memory of Andor's life and to honour his enduring spirit.
The family is proud to continue his legacy of honesty integrity and excellence.

MULLEN, Patricia Ann
Pat fought a determined battle for the brief time that she knew she had cancer. On her 65th birthday, Monday, January 30th, 2006, with her family at her side, she decided that it was finally time to sleep. She will be dearly missed and loved forever by her brother Michael and his wife Betty and their family, her sister Carol FREYMUTH and her family, her sister Sharon MULLEN (Flynn) and her family, and her extended family Allan and Kathleen MATTHEWS and their family. We particularly thank Dr. Afshan RANA at Scarborough Grace Hospital for her care and compassion. Pat has chosen cremation and will rest with her parents in Mount Hope Cemetery.
