Teenager remembered as friendly, full of fun
Cassandra HARDWICK was fatally injured while using a crosswalk on her way to school.
By Peter GEIGEN- MILLER, Free Press Reporter, Wed., April 12, Grieving Friends and classmates remember Cassandra HARDWICK as outgoing, friendly and full of fun.
The Grade 12 student at Sir Wilfrid Laurier secondary school was fatally injured Monday morning while using a Southdale Road crosswalk a block from the school.
It's the latest in a spate of pedestrian accidents that have killed seven people on London streets in 2004 and 2005 and injured many more.
Yesterday, shocked classmates responded to HARDWICK's death by creating a memorial at the accident site.
The roadside tribute features flowers, photos and a large poster filled with hand-written messages and memories of HARDWICK, 17.
The popular student, voted funniest at Laurier this year, laughed a lot and made others laugh, classmates remembered yesterday.
"She was the queen of funny faces," said Grade 12 classmate Katie ELDRIDGE. "If you had a bad day, you could talk to her and she'd cheer you up."
Jessie FOSTER, also in Grade 12, said HARDWICK always made her smile.
"If you didn't know her, you missed out on something," FOSTER said.
Laurier principal Frank GALIZIA spoke about HARDWICK before her name was officially released, describing her as "a lovely young lady, just a good person."
He said the young woman was a good student and well thought of by staff and students alike.
GALIZIA said guidance counsellors and the Thames Valley District school board's traumatic events response team have been at the school to provide support for any staff and students who need it.
GALIZIA said the student body has responded to the death with compassion, supporting each other in their grief.
The accident occurred at a crosswalk on Southdale west of Millbank Drive, where the school is located.
The crosswalk is controlled by buttons that are pushed to turn traffic lights on Southdale red and give pedestrians a walk signal.
Police are investigating the role of the crosswalk in the accident.
Area resident Wilfrid VOAKES said he'd like to see more protection for pedestrians crossing heavily travelled Southdale Road.
He would like to see school zone warning signs and reduced speeds on Southdale Road near the crosswalk.
"We need signs to slow the traffic down and make drivers more aware of the kids," VOAKES said.
He points out the neighbourhood has Laurier secondary school and two elementary schools.
"It will probably happen again if they don't do something," VOAKES warned.

In loving memory of a dear father, grandfather, great-grandfather, Giuseppe, who passed away October 4th, 2005.
As we sat beside your bedside, Our hearts were crushed and sore, We saw you slowly sinking, And we knew they could do no more. In tears we saw you leaving, As we watched you fade away, Our hearts were totally broken, When you left us on that day. We think of you in silence, We often speak your name, But all we have are memories, And your picture in a frame. What we would give to hold your hand, Your happy face to see, To hear your voice and see your smile, That meant so much to us, If all the world were ours to give, We'd give it all back and more, To see your loving face again, Come walking through the door.
From daughter Carmela and Doug, your son Tony and Christine, Frank and Dina, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

CHESHIRE, Shirley Amelia (née THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON)
With sadness at her passing and joy in her life, the family of Shirley Amelia CHESHIRE announce her death, after a long illness, on Friday, March 10, 2006. Shirley was born on June 20, 1918 in Oil Springs, Ontario, the fourth child of George THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and Margaret WILLIAMS. She was predeceased by her older siblings, Russell (d.1909) and Florence LIMON (Archie) and is survived by her older brother, Kemp THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON (Joan) of Kitchener. In 1944, Shirley married John Robertson CHESHIRE of Wiarton, Ontario, then a lieutenant. Their loving partnership of 62 years gave great joy to them, their family and Friends. John gives thanks for the life of his dear wife. Shirley was a loving and proud mother to Robert and his wife, Rosamund DA GAMA, and to Pamela and her husband, Jim GALLAGHER. She was a doting grandma to Robert's children, Katie and David, and to Pamela's children, Kevin and Shannon. She is remembered with sweet affection by many nieces and nephews and a great circle of Friends. Shirley's parents gave her a bright and wise mind, a loving nature, the gift of music, a belief in hard work, deep Christian values, a commitment to community service, strong Canadian patriotism, pride in her Scots and Welsh roots, and the love of a good party! She never let heart problems, contracted at the age of five, get in the way of an active purpose-filled life. When she and John met, she was already the acting manager of a trust company branch. Her management and financial skills assisted her as she served in many positions notably as President, Municipal Chapter of Toronto and as Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire National Treasurer. In Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire, Shirley co-initiated annual book awards for children, encouraged projects with Canada's First Nations, and children's health care. She served on a number of boards, including the Children's Centre, North York General Hospital. In the mid-70s, John's firm, PPG Canada, nominated her the firm's citizen of the year. Chosen, she was honoured in Pittsburgh and threw the first pitch at a Pirates game. Each year an award is presented in Shirley's name at the Kiwanis Music Festival, Toronto; generously she contributed family antiques to the national museum in Oil Springs, Ontario. Over time, Shirley and John lived in Debert, Nova Scotia, Moncton, London and Toronto, but a constant in their lives was summers at their cottage at Oliphant, Ontario. Interment of Shirley's ashes will take place nearby, in Wiarton's Bayview Cemetery, this summer. Friends may call at the Turner and Porter Butler Chapter, 4933 Dundas Street West, Etobicoke (between Kipling and Islington Aves.) from 2-4 p.m., and from 7-9 p.m. on Tuesday, March 14. A celebration of Shirley's life will be held at Humber Valley United Church, 76 Anglesey Blvd., on Wednesday, March 15 at 11 a.m. Light refreshments will be served at the church, after the service. In lieu of flowers, gifts for work with Canadian youth may be entrusted to The National Chapter of Canada Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire, 40 Orchard View Blvd, Suite 254, Toronto, Ontario, M4R 1B9

SISSONS, Joan (née GALLAGHER)
It is with deepest sorrow that the family of Joan SISSONS (nee GALLAGHER) announces her passing on May 16, 2006. Joan is survived by her two daughters, Jackie and Sharlene, six grandchildren, 2 great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews. How do you sum up a life in an obituary notice Joan was a mom to Sharlene, Jackie and their husbands, Tim and Bob. She was "Nan" to Jack, Bradley, Barry, Sean, Kathryn and Bryan. To Maddie and Jane, she was "great Nan." She was kind, smart, funny and always loving. She had such a zest for life! She listened to your problems and never judged you. She offered advice only when you requested it. She saw good in everyone and she loved her family above all else. Mom was an avid bridge player (some would say a card shark), devoured a book every day and never tired of learning and experiencing new things. In 1992 the love of her life, our father Jack, died after a brief battle with cancer. We never thought Mom could survive such a loss as our parents were so devoted to each other, but she forged ahead with life. Three years after Dad's death, she sold the home he built and moved to London to be closer to Jackie, her eldest daughter, and her family. We thought she'd be nearer to us and we could help her with things, but in reality, she was the one who always helped us. We don't know what we would have done without her living so nearby. Mom made new Friends in London (Mary, Moira, Rachel, Bizerka, Mary Kathryn and Elaine to name a few). She loved getting together with her Friends, Connie and John, for a game of bridge. We had to each throw in a dollar before every bridge game, and more often than not, she went home with the pot! Our, dear Friends, John and Debbie, became her dear Friends as well. We always said she was a teenager trapped in an older body. Newcomers kept her busy and she enjoyed the many Friends she made through the organization. She belonged to St. Pius the X Church and found great comfort in attending weekly mass. Every year she flew out to Calgary to spend Christmas with Sharlene and her family. It became a tradition after Dad died. She delighted in all the activities of her grandchildren and they thought Nan was "cool." She kept in touch with her Friends and relatives in Falconbridge and area (Betty, Agnes, Norma, Bob, Lana and Joe Mulligan come to mind). We're so grateful we had Mom for as long as we did, but if we could multiply the time by 100, it would still be far too short. Until we see you again, Mom… Love, your family. As per Mom's request, there will be no funeral or visitation. Expressions of sympathy or donations (Heart and Stroke Foundation or a charity of your choice) would be appreciated and may be made through London Cremation Services, 672-0459 or online at www.londoncremation.com.

Frank HERSEY, Soldier And Civic Politician (1905-2006)
In 1932, he was a young army signaler borrowed by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in its hunt for the Mad Trapper of Rat River. For weeks, he and a posse of about 20 chased a desperate gunman across the frozen wilderness
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Toronto -- Frank HERSEY was the last surviving member of a posse that tracked down the Mad Trapper of Rat River during a 240-kilometre chase along the Arctic Circle in 1932.
A party of more than 20 Mounties, soldiers, natives and trappers tracked Albert JOHNSON for weeks in -40° temperature. By the time the trek ended in the middle of a frozen river, two men were dead and two others were badly wounded. One of the wounded was Mr. HERSEY.
It all began with a complaint by trappers that JOHNSON was interfering with their trap lines. According to author Dick North, JOHNSON was probably Johnny JOHNSON, a convicted murderer from North Dakota, who set foot in Fort MacPherson, Northwest Territories, on July 9, 1931. After a series of complaints, Royal Canadian Mounted Police constables Alfred King and Joe Bernard set out in late December of 1931 to question JOHNSON. The next day, they found a cabin he was believed to use, but when one of the officers peered through a window, someone blocked it with a burlap sack.
The officers retreated and returned several days later with three additional men.
"Are you in there, Mr. JOHNSON?" Constable King shouted through the door. The fugitive responded by firing a bullet through a hole in the door, badly wounding the officer. The posse retreated, travelling 20 hours to get treatment for him.
Several days later, an even bigger party returned to lay siege to the cabin. After 15 hours of gunplay, a bomb was hurled onto the roof and the cabin collapsed. When the posse went looking for a corpse, JOHNSON stood up from a fox hole and started shooting. The siege had failed. JOHNSON disappeared into the wilderness and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police returned to Aklavik, Northwest Territories, to assemble a more sophisticated posse.
It was then that Frank HERSEY joined. A former high-school teacher from New Brunswick, he had joined the Canadian Army in 1927, spending six years in Aklavik as a communications expert, helping to construct and operate a radio station that broadcast to Edmonton. As part of the Royal Canadian Signal Regiment, he had vast experience in the North, became familiar with explosives and was a crack rifleman. He was also an experienced musher.
"My dad was chosen because he had the fastest dog team… seven huskies," said Mr. HERSEY's daughter Sheila. "He had the lead team. He was so familiar with the North and good on tracking. He was single in those days and he would always want to be doing something. He bred his dogs with wolves."
Notwithstanding his competence with dog teams, Mr. HERSEY's involvement in the manhunt marked the first time two-way radio was used by police in Canada. Another first was the use of an airplane in such an operation. While the posse travelled via dogsleds, First World War flying ace Wop MAY, an experienced bush pilot, searched from the clouds in a Bellanca monoplane equipped with skis. As a young pilot during the war, it was MAY whom the legendary Red Baron (Manfred von Richthofen) was pursuing when the German ace was downed and killed.
The search for JOHNSON was a formidable assignment. The fugitive eluded the posse in what was the coldest winter on record, using wilderness skills that seemed almost superhuman. Strapping on his snowshoes and weighed down by a backpack full of pots, pans, household goods and food, the stocky, muscular man of 35 was still capable of travelling two miles for every mile covered by the dogsleds.
At one point, the posse's advance party stumbled on a hut to be met by gunfire. JOHNSON scrambled behind a fallen tree and a two-hour interval unfolded in which nothing happened. Finally, Constable Edgar Millen became concerned that JOHNSON would escape and moved closer. JOHNSON fired several shots, striking Constable Millen in the heart. It was Mr. HERSEY who next day retrieved the body.
The pursuit went on for weeks until on February 17, Wop MAY spotted snowshoe tracks on the Eagle River and radioed Mr. HERSEY. Within hours, some of the posse caught up to JOHNSON. Going down on one knee, Mr. HERSEY shot at the desperado three times at a range of about 80 metres.
"I didn't want to kill JOHNSON. I have trouble killing flies," Mr. HERSEY once told The Quarterly, an Royal Canadian Mounted Police magazine. "I'd hit his back three times… and down he'd come and he was just disgusted with me. He reached behind and got the rifle and, bang. He hit me dead centre. I had fallen and gone over backward and down in the snow. He fired three more times at me as I lay in the snow and didn't hit me once. [I was hit] through my left knee."
Meanwhile, JOHNSON seemed untouched until finally a freak shot changed everything. An Royal Canadian Mounted Police bullet found the spare ammunition JOHNSON carried in his backpack and it exploded. JOHNSON was seriously wounded and the posse moved in for the kill. The fatal shot was a bullet in the spine. By some accounts, it was the last of 17 bullets found lodged in his body. Police recovered $2,410 in cash on him, along with gold fillings from corpses, a pocket compass, a razor, knife, fish hooks, a dead squirrel and a dead bird.
With the mission accomplished, Mr. HERSEY's life was on the line. The only man hurt in the final shootout, he was scooped up by MAY and flown to hospital in Aklavik.
"Without Mr. MAY's quick action, my dad would never have made it," his daughter Sheila said. "He was shot through the knee and the bullet then went into an elbow and into his chest. They found it embedded in flesh in his back."
The JOHNSON adventure spawned several books, including those written by Mr. North, several television productions and a fictionalized movie Death Hunt, starring Charles Bronson and Lee Marvin. Recently, it was featured on the History Channel's Manhunt series.
"Frank would always carry the bullet with him, the bullet from JOHNSON's gun," Royal Canadian Mounted Police chaplain and historian Gerry McMillan said. "Hollywood made a movie a number of years ago about the Mad Trapper but it was poorly done and far from being true to the account."
Mr. HERSEY remained in Aklavik for another year before he was transferred. Over time, he received postings to such places as Kingston, Montreal, Alberta, and Barrie, Ontario, where he eventually settled.
Drawing on his experiences in the North, the army called on him in early 1946 to participate in Exercise Muskox, a trial run to determine if snowmobiles could replace dogsleds. The 2,900-kilometre expedition ended with a reception in Edmonton in May. It was also during his army days that Mr. HERSEY had the great fortune of winning $157,000 in the Irish Sweepstakes, exceptional coin for those days. During the Second World War, he served in the army's Signal Corps Armoured Division, landing in Sicily. Somewhere along the way in Italy, he got to meet the Pope.
Mr. HERSEY retired from the army in 1955 at the age of 50 and settled in Barrie, where he became involved in local activities. Mr. HERSEY served on Barrie City Council for 16 years. He was voted Barrie's Citizen of the Year in 1960 and was a member of the local Rotary Club for close to 50 years. He was also a passionate curler until his 80s, often lying about his age so he wouldn't be passed over for bonspiels.
"If I tell them my real age, they won't pick me," he would often say.
Frank HERSEY was born on August 6, 1905, in Fredericton, New Brunswick He died in his sleep on January 1, 2006, in Elmvale, near Barrie, Ontario He was 100. He leaves his daughter, Sheila. He was predeceased by his wife, Olive, and his son, David.

By Danny GALLAGHER, Page S9
Toronto -- Fernando AGOSTINELLI, a professional engineer who made his mark on a number of elite buildings in Ontario, has died. Mr. AGOSTINELLI, who was born on August 4, 1944, in the Italian province of Pescara, was a principal in the Toronto firm Carruthers and Wallace.

VERRIAN, D.J.
Toronto talent agent succeeded his mother
By Danny GALLAGHER, Page S9
Toronto -- The death of D.J. VERRIAN, a co-owner of Toronto-based Faces and Places, one of Canada's top talent agencies specializing in sending background extras and actors out on commercials, has stunned the local entertainment industry.
Mr. VERRIAN died suddenly on February 19, a year to the day after the death of his mother, Clibby, the long-time operator of Faces and Places. He was 30.
Mr. VERRIAN, who had helped care for his mother while she suffered from cancer in 2004-2005, died after suffering an reaction to drugs administered to treat a cut hand, his younger brother Derek said.
"It was tragic, accidental and unexpected," said Derek VERRIAN, a partner in Faces and Places, which has operated for 26 years. "He got stitches in his hand, took a bunch of painkillers and was heavily intoxicated. He went to bed and never woke up."
The VERRIAN brothers assumed control of their mother's operation a year ago, and aggressively built up the business. When their mother died, the agency had 350 clients and helped launch the careers of such performers as Sarah Polley and Justin Louis. Today, it boasts 750 clients, including 500 Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists members.
"We brought the agency into the future, technology-wise," said Derek VERRIAN, who intends to continue the operation. "Mom was hung up on a typewriter and never sent emails."
D.J. VERRIAN was born January 27, 1976 in Toronto. He died on February 19, 2005.

Fred BURR, Educator And Politician (1911-2006)
Pioneer environmentalist who was a perennial also-ran in Ontario politics got things done when he was finally elected
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Toronto -- Fred BURR was never one to merely sit on the backbenches. He made a point of speaking up more often than not on issues that were dear to him. Question Period was his time to prod and probe. And almost always, he expressed his views in a non-partisan manner. He didn't fit the mould of an argumentative socialist. Whether it was environmental issues, solar energy or mandatory seat belts, Mr. BURR made the Ontario legislature sit up and take notice.
Mr. BURR graduated from London Central Collegiate Institute in London, Ontario, in 1928 and then from the University of Western Ontario in 1932 in classics. After working for one year at Milverton Continuation School in Milverton, Ontario, he taught Latin and Greek at Walkerville Collegiate Institute in Walkerville, Ontario, for 34 years. Somehow, he found time to serve three years as a utilities commissioner in Windsor, Ontario, the third year as chairman from 1965-1967.
As a young man who had experienced the Depression, he also developed an intense interest in politics. "He was one of the those students who wanted to change the world and save the world," his daughter Sheila said.
Mr. BURR joined the Co-Operative Commonwealth Federation Party, the forerunner of the New Democratic Party during the Depression and often recruited members and money for the organization while teaching 10 lessons a day. Mr. BURR first ran for election in 1945 and tried five more times in either federal or provincial races but he was successful. Finally, in 1967, he agreed to run for the New Democratic Party in Sandwich-Riverdale (later Windsor-Riverdale) after someone backed out. He won by 799 votes in a three-way race. He won by 10,000 the next time.
"He was a thoughtful person, largely unflappable," recalled Stephen LEWIS, the New Democratic Party leader during much of the time Mr. BURR was an member of provincial parliament. "He was deeply interested in his issues. He was never nasty. Nothing was done in malice."
Because of those virtues, opposition members of provincial parliament and ministers grudgingly referred to the "member of Sandwich-Riverdale" in response to his persistent questions and open letters that exposed such environmental hazards as mercury levels in the St. Clair River. In fact, Mr. BURR is credited for helping get the Ontario government to establish an environment ministry in 1975.
"I don't believe in asking questions just to get publicity," Mr. BURR told The Globe and Mail in 1974. "The question should have some potential for correcting a situation or improving a situation or preventing a situation. A question in the house should have some social value, rather than a political or partisan motivation."
Over the years, Mr. BURR campaigned for mandatory seat belts in cars and for designated non-smoking areas. He also had a hand in a provincial organ-donor program. "He helped get the legislation going for organ-and-tissue donors but only now are people thinking of what they should do with their organs after death," Mr. LEWIS said. "Fred was away ahead of his time with his private member's resolutions,"
In 1974, one of his questions in the legislature went like this: "Why aren't we spending at least a small fraction of the enormous outlays on oil and gas for research into ways to use solar energy?" Then he would follow up with a view on the matter: "There's no fuel bill from the sun and we won't run out of it either."
Together with Fred YOUNG, a Toronto member of provincial parliament, Mr. BURR led the Non-Smoker's Rights movement. They opened the campaign at a Toronto restaurant which agreed to ban smoking for one night to publicize the event. A man who never smoked or had a drink in his life because his mother had once warned him of their evils, he is believed to be the first person to give a speech in the legislature on the dangers of second-hand smoke.
"Smoking is the most intense form of air pollution," he told the legislature and moved that a clean-air environment be preserved during committee hearings. When he saw environment minister William NEWMAN reaching for his cigarettes, Mr. BURR would say, "Cadmium in the lungs, liver and kidneys of smokers is 15.8 milligrams and of non-smokers 6.63. I thought you would like to know that, Mr. Minister."
Mr. BURR also helped changed the inequity that teachers faced if they happened to be married to another teacher and their spouse died. Until he intervened, the surviving spouse had been unable to claim for half of their partner's pension, as others could.
In his early years, Mr. BURR was stricken with rheumatic fever and diagnosed with a heart murmur. His doctor told him that if he would take very good care of himself, he might live to be 64. He took heed.
Fred BURR was born February 26, 1911, in London, Ontario He died January 17, 2006, in Kincardine, Ontario of natural causes. He was 94. He is survived by his daughters Maureen and Sheila. He was predeceased by his wife Dorothy and son David.

Frank MURRAY, Radio Executive (1918-2006)
Small-town Ontario broadcaster made his mark on the national scene
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S11
Toronto -- From the air to the radio station, sound was the big noise in Frank MURRAY's life. He was a long-time friend of former Canadian prime minister Pierre Trudeau, covered Winston Churchill's funeral as a radio reporter and helped shape broadcasting in the Ontario venues of Belleville, Trenton and Bancroft.
The son of a professor of music at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland, he grew up to join an insurance company as a sales executive but headed for Northern Ireland soon after the Second World War began to enlist in the Royal Air Force.
He spent six years as a flight lieutenant and Coastal Command air gunner, one of very few commissioned officers to serve in that role. In 1943-44, he was engaged in a special mission that altered his life dramatically: He was sent to an air force base in Picton, Ontario, to help prepare air crews for warfare as part of the vast British Commonwealth Air Training Plan. It was a large, busy base and on Saturday nights, busloads of young, local women arrived at the officers' mess to attend dances and other social functions. One night Mr. MURRAY met Isobel STEWARD/STEWART/STUART of Belleville, Ontario, and one thing led to another. They were married March 11, 1944, at the base and soon afterward he returned to the war in Europe. Isobel followed later on a ship full of war brides.
"As it was war time, they had no idea of when they would dock in England but Dad flew Coastal Command and kept an eye on the ship," daughter Pam MURRAY said. "He was the first person to greet the boatload of wives and kids and somehow managed to get some flowers. Mom and Dad left on a train for Northern Ireland the next day. Mom was there for the better part of a year when she found out she was pregnant with me and came back to Belleville."
When the war ended, Mr. MURRAY joined his wife in Belleville and worked at odd jobs before landing a sales position at CJBQ Radio. By 1959, he had been made general manager. Over the years, he took CJBQ from a 500-watt medium enterprise to a four-station network that included CKGL-FM in Belleville, CJTN in Trenton and CJNH in Bancroft.
Veteran broadcaster Dave SOVEREIGN still remembers the day Mr. MURRAY hired him. "I was a radio and television arts student at Ryerson in Toronto and one day in 1960, Frank came from Belleville because he wanted a summer student.
"There were seven people who auditioned for him and he chose me. Then the following year, I was hired full-time as a newsman and eventually became the news director. I worked 28 years for Quinte Broadcasting."
While he worked mostly in management, Mr. MURRAY would often get behind the microphone or hit the road as a reporter. When former British prime minister Winston Churchill died in 1965, Mr. MURRAY attended the funeral and sent live reports back to the station.
"That was pretty unique and big news in Belleville to have someone like Frank travelling all the way to London to cover the funeral," Mr. SOVEREIGN said. In much the same way, Mr. MURRAY also reported the royal wedding of Princes Charles and Lady Diana
Closer to home, he twice put crews together and took them to Montreal to cover Expo 67 and the 1976 Olympics, and once caused a stir by accompanying external affairs minister Mitchell Sharp on an around-the-world visit. He pulled off a media coup by doing a live show with Mr. Sharp from the back of the plane. "We got scooped by a guy from a small station in Belleville," said CTV reporter Mike Duffy.
Mr. MURRAY also stole a march or two as a broadcast executive. In the early years of cable television, he acquired an operating licence for Quinte Cable Systems, which today claims 80 per cent penetration of its market. At the time, it was second such licence issued in Canada.
"Frank got that licence for only $25," recalls Don LAWRIE, formerly a senior executive with Thomson Newspapers, which went into a partnership on the project. "At first, Ken Thomson, the owner, didn't want to get involved because he thought the government would think we would have a monopoly. Finally, I suggested to Ken that we approach Frank and the Morton family about being a local partner."
Frank MURRAY also had a keen interest in local education. He was instrumental in setting up a radio-broadcasting program at Belleville's Loyalist College and founded and directed radio-club programs in Belleville and Trenton high schools.
For all that, his influence extended well beyond the region. He sat on the board of directors of the Canadian Association of Broadcasters and was president of the Central Canada Broadcasters Association, both considered unusual achievements for a small-market radio executive. "Usually it was the big guys, CHUM, etc., who sat on those boards," Pam MURRAY said.
On the political front, Mr. MURRAY engaged in a lifelong relationship with Mr. Trudeau and the Liberal party. At a fundraiser in Belleville in the 1970s, Mr. Trudeau asked him to run as a candidate in a federal riding. He declined the invitation but the two men remained Friends. When Mr. Trudeau died, Mr. MURRAY attended his funeral.
Frank MURRAY was born on February 13, 1918 in Dublin, Ireland. He died January 24, 2006, in Belleville, Ontario of natural causes. He was 87. He is survived by his daughter Pam and sons Kevin and Stewart. He was predeceased by his wife Isobel.

Bill HEASLIP, Retailer: (1927-2006)
He went from running a Toronto hardware store to owning one of Canada's largest men's clothing outlets, then lost it in one of the first big retail bankruptcies of the 1990s
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Toronto -- When Bill HEASLIP was 33, he was a co-owner of a big hardware store in downtown Toronto and reasonably happy, but he still yearned for a bigger piece of Canada's retail rainbow.
Mr. HEASLIP and Richard CHATER, a fellow partner at the store, sought to buy into something bigger. High on their priority list was a public company that was listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange. The savvy pair zeroed in on Grafton Group Ltd., a family-owned chain of 11 men's and women's clothing stores whose roots went back to 1853, making it the second-oldest retail chain in Canada behind Hudson's Bay Co.
In 1961, the two Friends made the plunge. Little did they know they would become multi-millionaires.
Bill HEASLIP grew up in the west end of Toronto and attended Runnymede public school and Humberside Collegiate Institute. His family could not afford to send him to university, so he went to work for his father, who sold advertising for the agriculture-oriented trade paper Canadian Countryman.
He did not stay long. By 1946, he had found a job at White's, a wholesale-retail hardware operation owned by the Chater family. Later, Mr. HEASLIP and Mr. CHATER assumed control and eventually decided to get into retail clothing. Their timing was perfect.
Grafton's middle-of-the-line, moderately priced clothing stores were in vogue across the country. Over time, the Jack Fraser, George Richards and Elks men's banners were added, along with Maher Shoes, Donita women's wear shops and the U.S.-based Seiferts chain of 200 stores.
But perhaps the most appealing of any acquisition Mr. HEASLIP and Mr. CHATER concocted came in 1967 when they obtained the licence to manage clothing for F.W. Woolworth's Woolco stores across Canada. It was a gold-mine contract that they would hold for close to 25 years. The pair sat back and watched the money roll in.
"That deal with Woolworth was quickly lucrative. It was something we tried to keep well hidden," said George REYNOLDS, who was Grafton's chief financial officer for 30 years.
Eventually, the Grafton empire grew from 11 stores to a staggering 1,100. Mr. CHATER was the company's brain trust and Chief Executive Officer, and Mr. HEASLIP served as senior vice-president. In 1982, Mr. CHATER died and Mr. HEASLIP became controlling shareholder Mr. REYNOLDS remained as Chief Financial Officer.
"Not only was Bill an intellectual with great business sense, but his greatest virtue was patience and he was a very successful Chief Executive Officer for that reason," said John McDONALD, a former board member whose family controls the Black and McDonald electrical and mechanical engineering empire.
By the late 1980s, Grafton was still holding its own in the clothing business but soon became a victim of a failing retail market that later claimed Simpsons and then the Eaton chain. First to go was the Woolco chain. In 1991, Woolworth decided not to renew its contract with Grafton, dealing a big blow to the company.
"The non-renewal was preparation for Wal-Mart buying the [144] Woolco stores," Mr. REYNOLDS said. "Too many of the stores weren't profitable."
In December of 1991, Grafton stunned Bay Street by filing for bankruptcy protection. The banks stepped in and, within a few months, the chain was taken over by a group headed by Glenn STONEHOUSE, a Grafton executive vice-president who assumed full control in 1994. Today, the company is called Grafton-Fraser and boasts about 180 stores, including 115 Tip Top Tailors outlets and 25 outlets of the George Richards tall-men brand.
After the bankruptcy, Mr. HEASLIP turned to philanthropy. Over the years, he helped support theatre groups, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Canadian Opera Company, Art Gallery of Ontario, Care Canada, the Canadian Liver Foundation and a number of hospitals. Because he never went to university, he established scholarships at 10 different universities. In 1999, he was granted the Order of Canada and given an honorary doctorate by St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, N.S.
Early retirement also gave him more time to enjoy a late-in-life marriage. A bachelor until 56, he wed Nona MacDONALD, director of public relations for the University of Toronto. She soon discovered he loved to cook. "I didn't cook much and I knew he loved to cook, so, one day, we were talking about going on vacation and I told him to take me some place where I had never been before and he jokingly said, 'That's easy, let's go to the kitchen.'"
Bill HEASLIP was born on July 5, 1927, in Toronto. He died on March 3, 2006, in Sarasota, Florida, of a stroke. He is survived by his wife, Nona, and sister Betty. He was predeceased by his parents and sisters Alice and Doris.

Over the years, Ms. LAMSON toiled as a maid, put in time on an assembly line, worked at Toronto's Maple Leaf Gardens when it was first built in the 1920s and sold the first hot dog at the Air Canada Centre in 1999.
Born on February 8, 1899, she was the eldest of eight children born to Charles and Charlotte LAMSON, descendants of Empire Loyalists who had settled in Cardinal, Ontario She left home in her early teens to work at a hospital across the St. Lawrence River in Ogdensburg, N. Y, then moved to Toronto to become a maid at the Park Plaza Hotel.
Later, she worked for 12 years for the Elizabeth Arden beauty company, where she was employed in the lunch room, on the assembly line and in the packaging department. On her way to work one day, she noticed that houses were being torn down in Toronto to make way for a new hockey shrine to be known as Maple Leaf Gardens.
"She was very upset with the buildings being taken down and that some people would have no place to live," said her niece, Nancy MILLER- KARKOULAS, of Burlington. "But she said she couldn't do anything about it and decided she would go there and work part-time selling hot dogs."
When Ms. LAMSON's supervisor at the Gardens told her she couldn't listen to Leafs games on her transistor radio (her job was far from the playing surface), she quit and purchased season's tickets way up in the grey seats. On February 13, 1999, she attended the final game played at the Gardens and was on the ice for the final ceremonies.
When the Air Canada Centre replaced the Gardens, she was asked to sell the first hot dog there. The sale was made to Leafs owner Steve STAVRO. Ken DRYDEN, then club president, had been the intended target but he'd been delayed by traffic. Ms. LAMSON was fond of Mr. DRYDEN because, for many years, he had sent her birthday cards.
Ms. LAMSON, who liked a shot of brandy here and there, once explained the reasons for her longevity: "I did what I wanted to do, I never married and I never smoked."

CHESHIRE, Shirley Amelia (née THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON)
With sadness at her passing and joy in her life, the family of Shirley Amelia CHESHIRE announce her death, after a long illness, on Friday, March 10, 2006. Shirley was born on June 20, 1918 in Oil Springs, Ontario, the fourth child of George THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and Margaret WILLIAMS. She was predeceased by her older siblings, Russell (d. 1909) and Florence LIMON (Archie) and is survived by her older brother, Kemp THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON (Joan) of Kitchener. In 1944, Shirley married John Robertson CHESHIRE of Wiarton, Ontario, then a lieutenant. Their loving partnership of 62 years gave great joy to them, their family and Friends. John gives thanks for the life of his dear wife. Shirley was a loving and proud mother to Robert and his wife, Rosamund DA GAMA, and to Pamela and her husband, Jim GALLAGHER. She was a doting grandma to Robert's children, Katie and David, and to Pamela's children, Kevin and Shannon. She is remembered with sweet affection by many nieces and nephews and a great circle of Friends. Shirley's parents gave her a bright and wise mind, a loving nature, the gift of music, a belief in hard work, deep Christian values, a commitment to community service, strong Canadian patriotism, pride in her Scots and Welsh roots, and the love of a good party! She never let heart problems, contracted at the age of five, get in the way of an active purpose-filled life. When she and John met, she was already the acting manager of a trust company branch. Her management and financial skills assisted her as she served in many positions notably as President, Municipal Chapter of Toronto and as Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire National Treasurer. In Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire, Shirley co-initiated annual book awards for children, encouraged projects with Canada's First Nations, and children's health care. She served on a number of boards, including the Children's Centre, North York General Hospital. In the mid-70s, John's firm, PPG Canada, nominated her the firm's citizen of the year. Chosen, she was honoured in Pittsburgh and threw the first pitch at a Pirates game. Each year an award is presented in Shirley's name at the Kiwanis Music Festival, Toronto; generously she contributed family antiques to the national museum in Oil Springs, Ontario. Over time, Shirley and John lived in Debert, Nova Scotia, Moncton, London and Toronto, but a constant in their lives was summers at their cottage at Oliphant, Ontario. Interment of Shirley's ashes will take place nearby, in Wiarton's Bayview Cemetery, this summer. Friends may call at the Turner and Porter Butler Chapel, 4933 Dundas Street West, Etobicoke (between Kipling and Islington Aves.) from 2-4 p.m. and from 7-9 p.m. on Tuesday, March 14. A celebration of Shirley's life will be held at Humber Valley United Church, 76 Anglesey Blvd., on Wednesday, March 15 at 11 a.m. Light refreshments will be served at the church, after the service. In lieu of flowers, gifts for work with Canadian youth may be entrusted to The National Chapter of Canada Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire, 40 Orchard View Blvd., Suite 254, Toronto, Ontario, M4R 1B9.
