EBY, Herbert Clifton
Herbert Clifton EBY of Feversham passed away in Grey Bruce Regional Health Centre on January 7, 2006 in his 90th year.
Herb was born in Elsinor, Ontario on August 8, 1916, the son of the late Gideon and Georgina EBY. In 1926 the EBY's left the farm at Elsinor and moved to Feversham and purchased what was to become known as "Eby's Store".
Herb aftended public and continuation school in Feversham and in 1936 he married Madge DAVIDSON. The young couple resided in the apartment above the family store and Herb worked for his father. In 1937 their son Stephen was born and shortly thereafter, Herb, Madge and baby moved to Barrie where he worked at a hardware store and drove a taxi.
In 1946 they returned to Feversham to take over the general store as the elder EBY's moved to Walters Falls. In 1950 their daughter, Sally May, was born. Herb purchased an insurance business from Norman HARRIS and for the next 15 years he and Madge operated the store and the insurance business.
Herb was an active member of many community organizations and as many of his generation was involved in getting what is now known as the "old community centre" established. He enjoyed many years in the bowling league there. The church was an important part of the EBY's life and for 40 years Herb was an Elder at Burns' Presbyterian Church in Feversham.
1986 was a landmark year for the EBY's as they celebrated 40 years of operating the store, their 50th wedding anniversary and made the decision to sell the store and retire to the home they purchased in the village.
Left to mourn his passing are Madge, his wife of 69 years, son Steve, daughter Sally, son-in-law John HOOD, grand_son Kevin HOOD, sisters Marguerite FORSYTH and Marion DOBIE as well as many nieces, nephews and Friends.
A funeral service was held in Burns Church on January 10, 2006 with Dr. David GLADWELL officiating. Pallbearers were Kevin HOOD, Todd ARMSTRONG, Scott ARDIEL, Bill BRISTOW, Wayne DAVIDSON, Lonnie HUDSON. Honourary pallbearers were Elmer MULLIN, Bruce DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS, Lloyd HUDSON, Burt HALE and Murray LASHOVICH.
Flowerbearers were Reta PHILLIPS, Bonnie DAVIDSON, Carol WAGSTAFF, Mary Lynn McCAULEY, Pamela BRISTOW, Cindi ALLEN, April HUBBARD, Lois PLUMMER and Jane ARDIEL. An excellent eulogy was provided by Burt HALE and a reading by John HOOD. Evelyn DARGAVEL and Kenton HUDSON shared their gift of music and Burt HALE, Rev. Charles JACKSON, Barbara SHIER and Kenton HUDSON sang "Because He Lives". Following the service a large crowd enjoyed the wonderful lunch organized by the Osprey Museum Committee assisted by Friends in the community.
Herb will be remembered for his quiet, gentle manner and he will be missed walking the streets of Feversham with his wee dog Lori.

No one will talk about daylight killing
By Betsy POWELL, Crime Reporter
A wall of silence was erected at once, leaving police stumped as to who is responsible for a midday shooting in a small townhouse complex that ended the life of a 22-year-old man.
On Friday, around 12: 45 p.m., someone fired several bullets into Michael LAIDLEY inside unit 48 at 301 Washburn Way in Malvern, northwest of Sheppard and Neilson Rds.
Police found LAIDLEY dying just inside the front door. He was rushed to hospital but could not be revived.
The young man, who played basketball with the community group HOODLINC, lived in the house with his mother Lenore BARKER and two brothers. No one else was at home at the time of the slaying.
"He was shot inside the house and they (suspects) were brazen enough to not mask themselves, shoot him at one o'clock in the afternoon, then run down the driveway amongst all those people," Homicide Det. Sgt. Steve RYAN said.
An autopsy was being performed yesterday.
Despite the fact it was daytime, despite the fact there were lots of people around, including those who heard the gunshots, and despite the fact police have, in some recent cases, made progress persuading witnesses: to come forward, RYAN said this is one of those discouraging examples of people clamming up.
"I find it hard to believe that all those people are out front and not one person claims to have seen anything," said RYAN.
So far, not a single potential witness has volunteered any information.
"Two guys were seen running down the driveway -- one ran behind unit 48 and the other hopped on a bicycle and fled," he said.
"That's third-hand. Not one person has come forward," he said.
Police have no evidence to suggest the homicide is linked to gang activity.
LAIDLEY was only known to police for some minor drug possession offences. Yesterday, two police cars remained parked at the residence part of a cluster of well-maintained, attached homes -- while investigators continued to search the house for evidence.
Malvern earned a notorious reputation after a wave of gang-related violence rocked the area until 2004 when Toronto police rounded up members of two warring gangs, the Malvern Crew and Galloway Boys. After that, the number of shootings dropped drastically although there have been occasional flare-ups.
