In loving memory of Allan HILL.
If remembrance brings you closer,
Then you never went away,
For thoughts of you are with us,
Each and every day.
There will always be heartache,
And those often silent tears,
But there are always precious memories,
Of the days when you were here.
You are held close within our hearts,
And there you will remain,
To be with us throughout our lives,
Until we meet again.
Love always Mark, Pam, Samantha, Tara and Dana.

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.

Wesley HILL, Riverman: (1930-2006)
He knew Niagara Falls almost from the day he was born and pulled more than 450 people out of the Niagara River -- most of them dead
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Wesley HILL was a riverman, the last of the line in his family. He saved 50 people from drowning in the Niagara River, and pulled out at least 400 bodies. He helped his father put a rope around a body in the river when he was 9 or 10 years old.
He knew Niagara, the falls and the river, almost from the day he was born. He was a baby in his mother's arms watching from the shore as his father tried to run the rapids of the Niagara River below the falls, the most dangerous stunt next to going over Niagara Falls itself. Red HILL had pulled it off once before, but this time he almost died.
The design of his barrel was too heavy and he was caught in the vortex of the whirlpool below the falls. He was trapped there for two hours as his barrel slowly filled with water. At one point he waved a distress signal -- a Union Jack -- but his death seemed certain.
His son, Red Jr., put a rope around his waist and went into the water and attached a hook to the barrel, then swam back to shore. It took 12 men to pull Red Sr. to safety.
Twenty years later Wes HILL, by now an experienced riverman, warned his brother not to go over Niagara Falls in a makeshift contraption called "The Thing." It was a collection of 13 giant inner tubes, canvas straps and fishing net, which Red Jr. thought would be light enough to float over the water.
As Pierre Berton tells the story in his book, Niagara, his older brother Red Jr. was on his way to the Rapids Tavern to fortify himself with a few beers before his attempt to go over the falls. "I'll see you later," said Red. "No you won't," replied Wes.
It was August 5, 1951. Red HILL went over the Falls with 200,000 spectators on the shore of the river and the falls. His "Thing" was smashed on the rocks. Red HILL Jr.'s broken body was found the next day. It was after this that the Niagara Parks Commission barred any more stunts. The fine for an attempt is $10,000.
"He thought he could make a little money. I told him the contraption was so light that it would hit the water and stop and he'd shoot right out of it and that's what happened," said Mr. HILL.
Another brother, Major (a name, not a rank) tried to go over the falls but ran aground on his way. He died while in jail on a minor offence. Still another brother, Corky, worked on the construction of a tunnel for a hydroelectric project. On the second day on the job he was struck by a falling rock and killed.
Wes HILL always said he had no patience with people trying to go over the falls. "I'll never have anything to do with these stunts. It's a better life working for a living."
Some of the work he did on the river involved consulting for movies. He worked on Blues Brothers 2000, Canadian Bacon and documentaries such as Niagara: Miracles, Myths and Magic. To get a view of what it would be like to go over the falls, he helped design a system using eight aluminum barrels each holding a camera. They all survived the 53-metre drop into the gorge.
One man went over the falls wearing just a parka and lived to talk about it. Kirk JONES went over the falls in October of 2003. Wes HILL said he wasn't that surprised.
"For years I said it was going to happen. I said somebody is going to go over and live," he told The New York Times. But he said it was a fluke. He had already pulled out two deer and dog that went over and lived. The secret is to go over near the banks.
"If you go over in the middle, you've got tons of water coming on top of you."
All the attempts involved the larger Canadian Horseshoe Falls. No one could survive a drop over the American side, which has house-sized boulders piled up against the face of the waterfall.
The HILL family were "rivermen" who knew the dangerous waters and gorges of Niagara Falls and the Niagara River so well that when there was trouble the HILLs were called. Wes HILL's grandfather was the first. He worked as a gardener for the Niagara Parks Commission and became a volunteer rescuer, or riverman. Some of the money for the work came from undertakers who paid $50 to $75 for a retrieved body.
But they saved the living too. Red HILL Sr. won four lifesaving medals, thought to be a record. He used his knowledge of the rivers near Niagara for more than rescue work. He was a rum runner during Prohibition. Mr. HILL said his father told him that if the U.S. Coast Guard came too close they would dump the liquor overboard.
"I remember scuba diving the river in 1955. We found bottles of whisky with the corks still in them. It tried the stuff. It tasted strong -- real strong," Mr. HILL told The Globe about 10 years ago.
Wes HILL was the last of the family to work the river, pulling people -- most of them dead -- from the Niagara River after they had been carried over the falls.
Niagara Falls has had a reputation as a honeymoon capital since the 19th century. On a visit in 1882, the writer Oscar Wilde quipped: "Niagara Falls must be the second major disappointment of American married life." But the falls also vies with the Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco as the suicide capital of North America.
About 20 people a year end their lives by going over the falls. The favourite time is in the late afternoon, the favourite day Monday and the most popular month is September. The number isn't exact because some slip into the water unnoticed and their bodies are never found.
About 10 years ago, high-powered jet boats replaced some of the daring work done by men like Wes HILL. Until then they had their techniques for picking up a body. Wait.
"The body would be in the centre of the whirlpool and it would go round and round," Mr. HILL told an interviewer. "We had to wait until it came close enough to shore, maybe 100 to 150 feet, then swim out and put a rope on it."
Wesley HILL was brought up in Niagara Falls. His father died when he was young and he left school at 16 and went to work at the Niagara Wire Weaving plant, running a machine that made gear for the giant hydroelectric systems around Niagara. When that plant closed he moved on to other local factories.
But he was known for what he did away from the factory.
"He did volunteer rescue work on the river," said his wife Sarah, who is modest about her husband's achievements. "And for the last eight years he worked part time for the park police."
Although Wesley HILL came from a line of daredevils, he did not approve of stunts. In the past 20 years two men each went over the falls twice and lived.
"It's been conquered time and time again. If someone else conquers it, he's not a hero. He's a fool."
Wesley Bryant HILL was born in Niagara Falls, Ontario, on May 14, 1930. He died of a blood clot in Niagara Falls on June 12. He was 76. He is survived by his wife Sarah, his daughter Diane and his three sons, Douglas, Daniel and David, none of whom are rivermen.

Bill HOPPER, Oilman (1933-2006)
Executive had the top job at Petro-Canada for 17 years and helped build the former Crown corporation into a major company, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S11
A government bureaucrat and oil-industry consultant, Bill HOPPER was the first head of Petro-Canada, the Crown corporation established by Pierre TRUDEAU in the aftermath of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries crisis in the early 1970s.
"He was a very knowledgeable and dynamic entrepreneur and we hit it [off] very well right away," said Marc LALONDE, who was appointed minister of energy, mines and resources in 1980 by Mr. TRUDEAU.
Saying that Mr. HOPPER, who was already ensconced at Petro-Canada when Mr. Lalonde became his political boss, was "absolutely" the right man for that time, Mr. LALONDE noted that he brought a wealth of experience in the oil and gas industry. "He was not your traditional bureaucrat. He knew these people [oil-industry executives] inside out, he spoke their language and he was as aggressive as any of them," he said. "He had very strong views about everything…. I was probably as much as a son of a bitch as he was."
Mr. LALONDE believes that Petro-Canada would not have grown the way it did if Mr. HOPPER had not been at the helm. "A more sedate, easygoing guy would have made Petro-Canada vegetate," he said. "He was a key player in the notion of getting an integrated oil company, from drilling to selling gas at the corner store. That's how we first acquired Petrofina as an entry into the field."
A politician of an entirely different stripe, Calgarian Harvie Andre, a former Progressive Conservative cabinet minister, said Mr. HOPPER "became the target for a lot of the animosity toward Petro-Canada and what it represented to the oil industry, but he didn't create Petro-Canada. Mr. TRUDEAU and Mr. LALONDE did."
Mr. HOPPER's son Christopher had yet another perspective. "My dad had an incredible sense of humour, a way with people that put them automatically at ease. He had a wonderfully sharp mind, loved to have great discussions on public policy, family business and was just a joy to be around," he said in Ottawa yesterday.
According to a HOPPER family story, which journalist Peter Foster relates in his 1992 book Self-Serve: How Petro-Canada Pumped Canadians Dry, Wilbert (Bill) HOPPER was almost born in Ithaca, New York rather than in Ottawa. His parents were living there while his father, Wilbert Clayton HOPPER, was studying for a doctorate in economics at Cornell. Apparently, Mrs. HOPPER (née Eva HILL) borrowed the family car (a converted 12-cylinder hearse) in the very late stages of pregnancy and drove herself back to Ottawa, where she delivered her son.
After finishing his PhD, Doctor HOPPER was hired by the Canadian Department of Agriculture and moved his family back to Ottawa. Young Bill went to Rockcliffe Park Public School and Lisgar Collegiate in Ottawa. When his father was appointed agricultural counsellor to the Canadian high commission in Canberra, Bill shifted first to the Scots College, a boarding school in Sydney, and then to Wellington College in New Zealand. After high school, he returned to North America to study geology at the American University in Washington, graduating with a bachelor of science degree in He began working for Imperial Oil as a geologist, but soon went back to school, earning an M.B.A. from the University of Western Ontario in 1959. By then, he had married Patricia (née WALKER.) They eventually had two sons, Sean Wilbert and Christopher Mark.
That year, the HOPPERs moved to Calgary, where he worked as a petroleum economist with Foster Associates for two years before taking a position as an energy economist with the National Energy Board in Ottawa from 1961 to 1964. He went back to private industry, working as a senior petroleum consultant for Arthur Little in Cambridge, Massachusetts., for the next three years. Mr. HOPPER "revelled in the globe-trotting, frayed-passport life of the international petroleum consultant, living out of a suitcase, dispensing advice to companies and governments in West and North Africa, Europe and all over South America and Southeast Asia," Mr. Foster wrote in Self-Serve.
Nevertheless, Mr. HOPPER moved back to Ottawa and the public service, working as an assistant deputy minister in the Department of Energy, Mines and Resources in 1973, just in time for the oil crisis that began that October.
The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, a cartel that includes Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, unilaterally raised its oil prices and dramatically cut back on the amount of oil it was willing to supply to nations that had supported Israel in the Yom Kippur War against Syria and Egypt. The sudden increase in oil prices led to stagflation, a combination of high inflation (edging 11 per cent in 1975) and high unemployment (which reached 7 per cent in 1975) in Canada.
Even before the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries crisis, Canada was in a quandary about oil and gas exploration. There was a bitter dispute about taxes, revenues and exploration subsidies between Mr. TRUDEAU's Liberal government on one side, and the industry and Alberta premier Peter Lougheed's Conservative government on the other. In 1970, Mr. TRUDEAU had asked Jack Austin, then deputy minister at Energy, Mines and Resources, to prepare a major study of the situation, including the possibility of creating a publicly owned oil company.
One of Mr. HOPPER's tasks when he arrived at Energy, Mines and Resources three years later was to work on this study. Mr. Andre, who was first elected to the House of Commons to represent a Calgary riding in 1972, remembers being impressed when he watched Mr. HOPPER present the oil study to a Commons committee.
"He seemed like a reasonably knowledgeable guy about the industry and the things that they were talking about in that policy were actually not bad," said Mr. Andre. The energy policy was to "ensure that there were markets for Canadian oil and gas" and measures "to stimulate the exploration industry." Then came the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries crisis, and everything changed. "And off we went on this wild excursion," said Mr. Andre.
The energy policy was shelved, controls were clamped on oil and gas prices, the Alberta industry went into a deep depression and Petro-Canada was founded in 1975 as a Crown corporation to provide "a window in the industry," with Maurice Strong as inaugural chair of the board. He hired Mr. HOPPER as chief executive officer. "Mr. Strong was not an operational guy," said Mr. Andre.
The situation in Calgary was tough, said Mr. Andre, because Mr. Strong and Mr. HOPPER represented "everything that was bad from the perspective of the oil and gas industry." Mr. HOPPER never moved to Calgary, arguing that one of his sons was in a special school in Ottawa and he didn't want to disrupt his family. Consequently, he never became part of the local community. Instead, he commuted to the heart of the oil industry from the seat of government on a private company jet every week. Then Petro-Canada erected a lavish building faced with red granite, imported from Finland, that dominated the Calgary skyline.
During Mr. HOPPER's tenure, Petro-Canada changed from a "window on the oil industry" and a resource-based company to an acquisitions-hungry monolith that also became a refinery- and retail-based company, buying Pacific Petroleums Ltd., Petrofina Canada Inc. and the network of Gulf Canada service stations, among other purchases. Mr. HOPPER eventually became a director of the corporation and chairman of the board as well as Chief Executive Officer of the company.
"The empire grew, but it didn't become profitable," said Mr. Andre, adding that "it couldn't have done it without the largesse of the federal government."
The upside of being a Crown corporation is that you have almost unlimited resources, so there is almost no possibility of bankruptcy. The downside is that you are accountable to the Canadian taxpayers and the political will of the government of the day.
Even after Brian Mulroney became prime minister, wining a landslide victory in 1984, Mr. HOPPER was still able to persuade the Conservatives to purchase the downstream assets of Gulf Oil from the Reichmann family. But, in the late 1980s, there was a concerted push to get the government out of the business of pumping gasoline.
Mr. HOPPER wasn't opposed to privatization, but he was not the right person to do it, in Mr. Andre's opinion, because "you were asking him to undo everything that he had done." The company began selling shares to the public in July of 1991. But Petro-Canada remained 70 per cent owned by the federal government during Mr. HOPPER's tenure.
By the early 1990s, the board had many experienced financial and oil-industry directors, several of whom were less supportive of Mr. HOPPER's managerial style. Rumours started circulating that Mr. HOPPER was an autocratic boss. Added to these problems, the company posted a $143-million loss in 1991. The next year, the results were dramatically better, showing a profit of $109-million, but the board had lost confidence in Mr. HOPPER, feeling, among other complaints, that he didn't work hard enough.
At a board meeting in January of 1993, Mr. HOPPER was fired. James Stanford, who had been named president of Petro-Canada in April of 1990, succeeded him as Chief Executive Officer.
After leaving Petro-Canada, Mr. HOPPER returned to Ottawa. "It didn't come out of the blue," he told a Globe and Mail reporter who asked him about his ouster. "I feel terrific. I'm 60 years old, I've been in this for a long time. For 17 years I've commuted, much to the dismay of Calgarians," he said. "I'm not unhappy about all this."
The exact details of his severance package were not clear, but, based on his more than $400,000 annual salary, it was speculated at the time that he received more than $1.2-million.
After that, Mr. HOPPER, the man who had been such a large and often contentious figure in the oil industry, kept a low profile, although his name was linked with business interests connected to his old friend, Mr. Strong. "He's been doing some board work as well as being a great father and grandfather," his younger son, Christopher, said yesterday.
Mr. HOPPER, who had always enjoyed an expansive lifestyle, had suffered from heart disease in recent years. He had valve surgery and suffered from heart-rhythm problems, but these had been corrected, according to his younger son.
Last Friday, Mr. HOPPER suffered a fall and broke one of his shoulders. On Monday, he underwent shoulder-replacement surgery, then suffered what appeared to be a heart attack or stroke.
Wilbert (Bill) HOPPER was born in Ottawa on March 14, 1933. He died at Queensway Carleton Hospital in Ottawa on Monday of complications following surgery. He was 73. He is survived by his wife, Patricia, two sons and five grandchildren.

HILL, Bishop Henry Gordon
Born December 14, 1921 in Kingston, and died peacefully at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto, following a stroke, on October 21, 2006. Bishop HILL was ordained in the Anglican Church as Deacon in 1948 and priest in 1950 (Diocese of Ontario). He served parishes in that Diocese, spent several years at Saint_John's College, Cambridge England, where he also served as Chaplain, and he was a professor of Church History at Canterbury College, University of Windsor. From January 1975 to January 1981 he served as Bishop of the Diocese of Ontario, followed by two years as Assistant Bishop of Montreal where he lived as an ecumenical Oblate of Dom John Main's Benedictine Priory. In 1981, Bishop HILL was asked by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Runcie, to serve as the Anglican CoChair of the Anglican-Orthodox Joint Doctrinal Discussions. From 1981 to 1998, he travelled widely among the Eastern and Oriental Orthodox Churches, at the request of the worldwide Anglican Primates. He did his ecumenical work primarily through personal conversation and by praying with the various orthodox communities he visited. The Friendships he created between the Anglican Communion and the Orthodox churches deepened the association between the churches and continue to have a profound effect on our mutual understanding. He founded the Scholarship of St. Basil the Great, to continue to promote Friendship between the Anglican Church in Canada and the Eastern and Oriental Orthodox Churches and the Assyrian Church of the East. From his days at Saint_John's College in Cambridge, Bishop HILL was a member of the Oratory of the Good Shepherd, an international association of Anglican priests, and was responsible for establishing a strong presence of the Oratory in Canada. He was also an Associate of the Sisterhood of Saint_John the Divine, and in 1984 came to live at Saint_John's Convent, in an apartment attached to the Convent. He was a spiritual mentor to the Sisters, broadened their international and ecumenical vision, and brought to the Convent many Friends from across Christian and other faith traditions. He was a spiritual mentor and soul friend to many throughout the Church, forming many ecumenical and inter-faith Friendships. He was the Episcopal Visitor of the Community of Jesus in Cape Cod, Massachussetts and had close connections with the Grenville Christian College in Brockville, Ontario. Bishop HILL's most profound gift as teacher, preacher, bishop, and ecumenist was undoubtedly the gift of prayer and spiritual Friendship. Visitation: Thursday, October 26, 2:30-4:30 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. at Saint_John's Convent, 233 Cummer Avenue, Toronto. Please check website www.ssjd.ca map and directions.

Gordon MOORE, Airman (1925-2006)
Royal Canadian Air Force tail gunner claimed he won the Distinguished Flying Cross for saving his Lancaster, and buzzed Buckingham Palace into the bargain
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to the Globe and Mail, Page S9
Ottawa -- Gordon MOORE spent a lifetime dining out on a yarn that told how he won the Distinguished Flying Cross in the Royal Canadian Air Force during the Second World War. While winning such a medal was not unusual, he was a not a pilot but a tail gunner in a Lancaster.
This is the story he liked to tell: Flying home one dark night from one of the 64 bombing missions he flew over the German Reich, Mr. MOORE fired his guns at the Luftwaffe fighters attacking his stream of Lancasters. A few moments later, the bomber flying in front of his aircraft blew up and debris from the explosion shattered the cockpit windows and wounded the pilot. Mr. MOORE said he had some experience at the controls and, knowing this, the pilot called for help. Mr. MOORE snaked his way forward along the narrow fuselage, took over the controls, and managed to keep the aircraft in the air, putting it down safely at an airfield near London. Mr. MOORE even said he buzzed Buckingham Palace, though it had happened only because the plane was far off course.
Mr. MOORE liked to tell his Friends that he and his wife, Helen, had an audience with the Queen Mother years later. The incident came up and the Queen Mother said she recalled the low-flying Lancaster.
According to him, they also met in Toronto. During a Royal tour, he was a policeman on guard duty at the Royal York Hotel when she happened past. He said she did a double take and turned in surprise. "Gord?" she asked. "Is that you?"
Gordon MOORE grew up in Toronto during the Depression. After joining the Royal Canadian Air Force, he trained in Canada as an air gunner and was eventually posted to 428 Squadron. A diminutive five foot, three inches tall, Mr. MOORE was just the right size to fit in the turret. Once he climbed inside, dressed in his heavy flying suit, complete with parachute and harness, there was little room to move around.
Scanning the skies though panels of clear Perspex, Mr. MOORE strained his eyes to get the jump on high-speed German fighters. He learned how to lead his target, because if he fired directly at an aircraft then it was long gone when his stream of bullets arrived. Even so, he never managed to shoot down any enemy aircraft.
Years later, he told his Friends that he was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for saving the Lancaster. An exhaustive check of the Royal Canadian Air Force association's web site, which is equivalent in length to 5,000 pages, did not support his claim. His name does not appear and, as an enlisted man, he would have won the Distinguished Flying Medal. The Distinguished Flying Cross was for officers.
Mr. MOORE never gloated about the Germans his Lancaster's bombs had killed or wounded. To him, it was a terrible, yet necessary job that had to be done. After reaching England and safety, he would sit in his turret for about 30 minutes, praying for the people he had helped kill, his friend Shelley HILL said.
After the war, Mr. MOORE joined the Toronto police force, where he continued to live an adventurous life as a sergeant in the traffic division. He later told how, in 1952, he had a hand in capturing the Boyd gang. Eddie BOYD and his boys had terrorized Toronto banks for almost five years. They also managed to escape twice from the Don Jail. Mr. MOORE's cousin, a police detective working on the manhunt, got a tip that the gang was hiding in the Don River valley. Mr. MOORE told his cousin he'd help find him if he could tag along. The cousins agreed and Mr. MOORE was present when police arrested the gang. Two of its members were hanged for murder, while Mr. BOYD got 14 years.
Years later, Mr. MOORE and his wife were vacationing in Victoria when he spotted someone who looked like Eddie BOYD. " He's done his time," he told his wife. "Let's invite him over for a coffee."
During the 1950s, decades before Canada abolished the death penalty, Mr. MOORE claimed to have spent time with three condemned prisoners. One wanted to play cribbage to pass his final hours on Earth, so Mr. MOORE obliged. When asked if he let the condemned man win, he replied no: "He had to earn it."
After retiring from the police, Mr. MOORE became a glass engraver. He then built furniture, also refinishing it. After undergoing successful triple bypass surgery in 1993, he decided to show his gratitude to London, Ontario's University Hospital by giving it money.
Over the years, Mr. MOORE and his wife gave between $100,000 and $500,000 to the London Health Sciences Foundation. "He was an exceptional gentleman," the foundation's Colleen DEJAGER told the London Free Press. "He liked recognition for what he had done. He loved telling stories, but he was a modest man, too."
Gordon Ross MOORE was born in Toronto in 1925. He died of internal bleeding on August 18, 2006, in London, Ontario He was 81. He is survived by his wife, Helen, and his sister Barbara.
